Improvements to the City Reduce the
Fire Insurance Rales In Many Dis
tricts Brewery Improvements Cut
Rate From 4V2 to 3 Insurance Ad
juster Criticises Pendleion Back
Yards Says Great Amount of In
flammable Litter Is Dangerous.
C. A. Craft of Spoknno, the special
representative of the Board of Un
derwriters of the Pacific coast, has
been in town for some days, examin
ing the fire risks, estimating the de
gTeo of protection against fire, and
the liability of different properties to
have fire, and the possible degree of
damage, that might result from fire
under ordinary conditions of weather
and water supply.
. Air, Craft mentions as a fact that
all property owners would do w.ell
to remember right In the start, that
every gasoline engine and gasoline
tank and gasoline lamps adds some
what to the risks of Insurance, and
Buch an Increase has been noted and
incorporated during this visit. The
additional risk when there was any
heretofore, was made a separate one;
now it Is added, as a percentage, to
the cost of Insurance.
The value of brick buildings Is em
phasized by the experience of William
Hoesch, the brewer, who finds his rate
of insurance on the now brewery to
b,e much reduceu. On the original
franio structure It was 4Vi; on tho

Tho rote on the Methodist church
adjacent to tho brewery Is not de
creased, because tho church adjoins
that portion of the brewery plant
which underwent no changes. The
cold storage building and the saloon
on tho corner nro still tho franio
structures they were before tho new
brewery was erected.
The rote on tho now Cottonwood
street laundry hns been reduced 5

Mr. Craft found "back yard condi
tions" bad In Pendleton, nnd does not
hesitate to say so. An Immense
amount of litter and debris, much of
It intlnmmable, has accumulated In
the alleys and on the back lots, nnd
he advises drastic measures to get rid
of It, as It constitutes a menace out
of all proportion to tho Indifference
with which people In general regard
It. Tho condition Is worse since the
ordinance was passed prohibited
burning debris. Jlr. Croft says: "The
people tell me the trash Is taken
away regularly, but It Is not, and I
know It is not. At tho same time Its
existence constitutes a menaco that
Is sure to be reflected sooner or later
In the insurance rates.
"Even should the rate not bo rais
ed, the existence of these piles of
debris should be Impossible, and will
be as soon as the people realize the
vlskB of fire from them. The people
should be nctuated by a sense of self
protection." Rib Broken.
The aged father of Hon jamln .Mor
ton, who lives 10 miles north of Pen
dleton, had a rib broken this morning
and sustained other, but slight, Injur
ies, by the railing of a large barn
door against him. The door was lift
ed off Its roller by a strong wind ns
Mr. Morton, Sr., was opening It. with
the result mentioned. Dr. McFaul
has tho case In charge and left the
prtlent resting quite comfortably con
sidering his years.
Afraid to Tell the Facts.
L. J. Anderson, a reservation wheat
farmer, refuses to divulge the prob
able or actual yield of grain on his
holdings this year, because "the grain
speculators use these Inflated esti
mates to bear down prices with. U
Is bad enough for everybody to tell
It when they tell Just what Is true
about the big yields; but nine-tenths
of them lie about It, anyhow."

The Hotel Pendleton changed hands
this morning, .1. J. Kelley succeeding
to Van Dran Brothers' unoxpireu
lenso, which has four years more to
r,un, their renewal dating about one
year ago, for a live-year tenure. The
consideration Is ?G500, tho purchase
Including tho saloon stock nud fix
tures, a portion of tho itirnlshlngs of
tho house, nnd tho good will. Tho
transfer is already mane and sir,
Kolley Is in possession.
Tho change of ownership carries
with It no change in tho personnel of
either the barroom force, or of the
working force of the hotel. F. H.
Gardner will remain ns clerk and
Frank Collier and E. It. Ferguson as
bartenders. Xelthor is there any
change In the dining room force, or
in the hall employes and housekeep
ers. J. J. Kelley will bo the manager ns
well us proprietor, and his oroth.er, F.
N. Kelley, will be night clerk, a po
sition which has been vncnnt for some
time. Ho will be assisted by his son,
Bliss Kelley. Mrs. Kelley accom
panied her husband and son to Pen
dleton on their first trip, nnd Is hero

Mr. Kelley has a record ns a land
lord In different parts of the country,
and the Ins nnd outs of the business
in Its heat phases are familiar to him.
At one time he ran a hotel In San
Bernardino, Cal., coming from that
place to Tacoma In 1900, where he
managed the Tacoma hotel for sever
al years'. He was onco manager of
the Park hotel at Great Falls, after
wards of a hotel at Bozcman, and for
a time was manager of a hotel in
the Yellowstone Park. He was In the
hotel business in Montana a total of
14 years.
Tho Van Dran brothers retire with
a fixed reputation as first-class hotel
men. They leave the Hotel Pendle
ton with a patronage that Is up to tho
limit of th.e capacity of the house,
would-be guests being turned away
o,very day for months past.' They
leave It only because of Caspar Van
Dran's continued ill health for
months past he had slept sitting In a
chair, heart and lung action being
such as to make reclining Impossible.
He has been In very poor health over
slnco he first came to Pendleton.
Shortly after his arrival here, and im
mediately after taking charge of tho
Hotel Pendleton, he was stricken with
typhoid fever and was hed-rlddon
three months. He has never fully re
covered from Its effects, In fact, his
present poor health results directly
from that Illness.
George Van Dran has no present
intention of leaving Pendleton, but
he has not yet decided In what busi
ness to engage.
The hotel company contemplates
extensive Improvements and altera
tions to the building within from one
to two years they cannot now tell
just when they will undertake them,
but tho general purpose of enlarging
nnd remodeling is established, and
tho details of putting them Into exe
cution is merely a matter of tlmo.
Tho Intention Is to add two stories
and put In nn elovator system.

Three Whelps Born to Lioness While

born to tho monster African lioness,
and n fow peoplo who learned of tho
fact and secured permission to view

closed to the public, as the lioness
was cross and fretful, only a fow
friends of tho management being nl
lowed to peer through a crack In the
cage to view the fnmlly.
Tho threo young niombors of tho
Floto menagerie lay In n Biiug bundle
In the middle of the cage, stretched
out full length, enjoying the hot eve
ning, nnd seemed to be In their prop-o.-
element, ns Pendleton wenther yes
terday evening very much resembled
that of their native jungles, about
this season of the year.
While the lioness was asleep, the
sightseeing wont on uninterruptedly,
and the whelps were not disturbed,
but the mother awoke while a fow
people were peering Into her cage,
and she Immediately became fretful,
picked up enc of her babies in her
mouth and paced the cage and grum
bled, As .she had killed two other
former babies by this procedure, tho
management took h.or cage out of tho
tent, where she would bo undisturb

One of her offspring, an lS-mnnths
old youngster, was exhibited to the
spectators In a nearby cage, this be
ing the only one of her eight families
of whelps that has lived to become a
permanent fixture with the menag
