ble Plight Mayor Matlock Gives
Temporary Relief Case for Investigation.
An old man 74 years of age, giving
the name of George Westfall, came
Into town afoot last night, from the
West. Judging from appearances and
his story his case ought to appeal at
nnnc in Hin pnmrnrtn slfln nf th Old
soldiers, and to the BenBlbllltles of
everybody else. He claimB to be an
linnnrnhlv (llflrhnrirnil veteran of tho
53d Illinois Voluntoer Infantry, and
t hnvo iila rilarlinrcn miners and
other evidences of tho genuineness of
ills representations wun aim, uuu iu

His story is that he is a member In

ship before going to Pocat,ello.
About a month ago lie secured a
furlough nnd went down to McMinn
viiin on n visit, whero ho remained
about a week, whou h.o, came to Port
land and stopped at tho National
Hotel on Front street. Immediately
after going to tho National he went
up town, and on tho way was stopp.ed
by two husky young follows who
without ceremony proceeueu to uusne
the old man in the most approved
style. Dy the time ho realized what
was being attempted, the strangers
were gone, and with them went ev.ery
cent ?30 that the old man had.
Tho past threo weeks lie has spent
en rout,o botwoen hero and Portland,
trying to walk to Boise. Ho has met
astonishingly few people who wore at
all sympathetic with, him, and part of
the time en route lias be.en sick.
When seen at tho O. K. & N. depot
this morning tho old man was crying
and apparently not really In his right
mind on account of his hardship and
tho prospects of tho trip botwoen
hero and Boise. Ho claims that May
or Matlock was tho only person who
appeared to beliovo his story In Pen

for his supper and lodging, If this
Is a genuine case it Is a very unusual

SHEEP SHIPMENTS MUST BE DIPPED
There is consternation among the
buyers of sheep, and equally among
the sheep raisers. Dy mail today the
government stock inspector and tho
sheepmen recelvo the notice b.olow
trom Gorge S. Hickok, tho agent in
charge of the animal Inspection bu
reau at Salt Lake City.
The immediate construction given
to the document by tho buyers and
shippers here, and by County Live
stock Inspector Benn Is that here
after all flhcej b.elng shipped into
other states for feeding or stock pur
poses or for breeding must be dipped
once, and if they navo been found to
b,o actually Infected, must be dipped
twice. These gentlemen give this
construction to the clause, "Sheep
that aro belug shipped into otber
states for feeding or stock purposes
or ,for breeding, must ho dipped once
as exposed, and twico if infected, in
some of tho (one) dips approved by
this bureau, and under the supervis
ion of a foderal employee."
Interviewed upon tho subject,
Mesurs. Hunter & Stephens, buyers,
Thin rule coming at this tlmo sim
ply means a dead loss to tho buyers
who have contracted for sheep, of not
less than 25 per cent per head, as all
tho shoop wo havo purchased will b.e
gaunted that much, and will conse
quently require moro careful treat
ment and extra feed to get them in
condition. Theso shoop will lose at
least six pounds on an average be
tween now and delivery in Nebraska,
.ovory ounce of which wo must make
up aftor dolivory at the foodlng lots
In that stato.
"Furthermore, it knocks In the
head sovcrnl large deals wp had on
since tho purchases wero made which
wero announced In yesterday after
noon's paper, because all figures must
necessarily bo revised."
Tho standpoint or tho sheep raiser
is perhaps best expressed by Stock
inspector Bean, who Bays;
"The cost to the sheou raisers is
considerable, the average expense of
dipping being two cents per head
arter the plant is in running order,
Tho loss by killing sheep during dlp
ping aeea not uo considerable, as
such loss is generally duo to tho carc
lessnosB of the operators. I havo
known some men to lose GO sheep out
of 200p during dipping, whereas others
will scarcely lose an animal. Tho
percentage of loss from that particu
lar source may or may not bo largo,
according to tho caro taken in tho
dipping and the Judgment used in
preparing lor tho dipping.
"As a matter of fact, tho general
oiiect or tue ruling, while it may ap
pear to work a hardship. In fact does
does work an immediate and unavoid
able hardship, nevertheless is produ&
tlvo of great beneHt in the long run,
