Eastern Oregon and Washington,

to 1,100 Pound Horses Wanted.
The Japanese government will buy
at least 10,000 cavalry horses in
Eastern Oregon, Washington and
British Columbia this spring, If this
number can bo found.
While the agents of the Japaneso
are worklnc on tho quiet, it nas
been authoritatively learned that tho
purchase of this consignment of
horses will be made early thlB
surine. nnd already Inquiries have
been secretly sent out as to the pos
sibility of securing any part of this
number from the ranges of this
The horses are to be of the same
eeneral reouirement as those se
lected for cavalry service by tho
United Stntes government, except as
to color, and no line will be drawn
on color. Anytinnc tnni nas iour
sound legs, a strong back and nervo
enough to carry a 120-pound Jap will
be acceptable, according t tno in
onirics mado In this city.
As the country nas necn scoureu
over thoroughly by the United States
eovernment within the last year,
horsemen doubt very much that any
large proportion of this consignment
of cavalry horses will be found In
either Eastern Oregon or Washing
The prices of horses are higher
this year by 10 per cent than last
year and while it would be possible
to secure a large number or l.uuu to
1.100-Dound horses without any re
striction on color, the regulation
cavalry horse, as purchased by the
United States 'government Is scarce.
