who have made the trip and those
who are still In the East send back
word that it is worth the while to
make the visit, and many people of
Pendleton and vicinity are planning
to leave as soon as business Interests
will nllow, for tho East.
The homeseekers are beginning to
come In from the East In small lots,
singly and In bunches, but the trou
ble is that they tarry but a short
time, look over the country for a day

E Prospect for a Large Yield
and Increased Acreage.
E. W. McComas has returned from
Echo and Switzler's Island, where he
lias been in company with F. S.
Bramwell, of La Grande, looking ovor
the sugar beet prospects. Tho beets
In both localities have been thinned
out and are growing rapidly, and
there Is every indication of a heavy
It will be necessary to cultivate
them from tlmo to tlmo during the
rest of tho season, and the water
will soon have to bo turned into the
fields. So far there has been no Ir
rigation, but the hot weather is fast
taking the moisture out of tho ground
and artificial irrigation will have to
bo used from this time on in ordor
to insure tho heaviest yield. Tho
prospects for a good crop are very
flattering, and the experiment has al
ready proven Itself, so that the acre

the witnesses for tho state, and Don
'aid Itoss and the defendant himself
for the defense Mrs. Morton, the
aged mother of the prisoner, was
present at tho trial, and snt besido
her boy, and as the details of the
shooting were brought out one by one
and as the Dougherty family gave
their version of tho troublo which
painted the prisoner in the blackest
of corors, she would shrink back
against her chair and look appealing
ly nt Judge Bennett nnd the defendant-,
though she never at any time
broke down, or seemed to lose hope.
Tho prisoner was calm and collect
ed in his demeanor, but the linos of
his face told that his mind was not
easy, and that he haB been worrying
more than he would admit over the
outcome. On the stand he gave his
story in n straightforward manner,
clearly and coolly, adhering in the
main to the story he told when ar
rested, and changing nothing, even
under the rigid cross-examination.
Tho arguments wore opened at
11:30 o'clock by T. G. Holley for tho
state, who spoke for 30 minutes. He
referred in the highest terms to
Judge Bennett as a man nnd a law
yer, saying that thero were none net-
ter in the state or in the ?ortnwesi.
He then reviewed the testimony of
both the state and the defense, and
held the prisoner up to the jury as
a thing beyond the pale, a monster
who drove women at the point of his
lovolvor across the snow-clad hills
with murder in his heart. Hp closed
by citing the law governing the evi
dence to be considered, and the duty
of the jurors. The court then ad
journed for the noon hour.
Judge Bennett commenced hlR ar
gument when the court was called for
the afternoon, nt 1:30. He started
out slowly, but gradually the jury and
the crowd lost sight of the prisoner
and the court room and saw only the
barren hills with tho lonely man i
herding the sheep in tho snow, and .
the nged mother sorrowing at the
reputations for gentleness nnd so
briety of couduct. Hiiddenly caught n
whiff of the elephant which was
across the river In the circus tent,
ami made a wild bolt for less contam
inated atmosphere.
Mr. Forshaw was driving, and pull
ed back so hard thnt he broke the
headstall on the bridle, allowing tho
bit to slip out of the mare's mouth
and down about her neck. The ani
mal raced down Jackson street, ncross
the Main street bridge nnd up Main
street, the wnrning shouts of Mr.
Plnuueder nnd the clatter of the
bounding rig clearing tho wny for
their pnBsngo. The nvatancho hurt
led down Main street and turned up
Wpbb. where It headed for tho reser
vation at an awful paee. Tho race
continued until the mare was Bitre
Rhe had escaped from the circus,
when stu slowed up nnd allowed the
men to fix the bridle, when she was
driven hack Into the city. Mr. Plot-
.otnler will shun the vicinity of cir
cuses when lie goes nut driving In
the future.

Tho city court was busy this morn
ing for some time with tho remnants
of tho circus jollity which pervaded
the city yesterday afternoon and last
Threo drunken white nion and one
Indian had been boisterous and were
sent to Jail for three days each to
learn better manners for public occa
sions. William Davis, a farmer who lives
near town, had started out with Rosa
Bowman, before known to tho police
circles, to see tho circus, but had
stopped at too many refreshment
stands, with the result thnt when the
shades of evening had fallen they had
got only as far as the Main street
bridge, at which place the woman
gave out. Tho pair were taken to
the city jail and Davis was senten
ced to eight days, Tho woman was
turned loose this nftornoon upon hor
promise to get out of town ns soon,
If not sooner, than she could.
William Hope, tho man of many
thefts, was turned over to the mercy
of the district attornoy and was taken
to jail to await his trial. There were
three charges of larceny from a store
lodged against him ono for tho theft
of tho BhlrtB from Sullivan & Bond,
one for having taiten tne coal and
vest from the Prlvott barber shop and
not for sale. Ench man sows about
what he thinks he needs for his stock
and so but little Is raised for export.
Last year It Is estimated that not
more than 10 or 15 cars of barley
were sent out of the county for ex
port; but this year tho shipments will
' be much more owing to tho large
yield that Is promised at this time.
