CHICAGO OR KANSAS CITY?
Both Cities Will Battle for Coming
Republican National Convention.
Chicago. Oct. 24.-Chlcago and
Kansas City will fight it out for both
the republican and democratic na
tional conventions of 1908. Chicago
will win oniy on condition that a
larger convention hall be provided
than the Ccliseum and better ar
ranged. Thomas D. Knight, presi
dent cf the Hamilton club, delivered
this message at a banquet of the
"Old Guard" of the club. He had
lust returned after a consultation
with Chairman New and other re
publican national leaders at Wash
ington: "Chicago must provide a hall which
will comfortably seat 14,000," said
Mr. Knight. "That Is the founda
tion stone of the demands of the na
tional committee, and must be met
by Chicago, or the cenventlon goes
to Kansas City, where there is a hall
seating 20,000. Already many east
ern committeemen have pledged
their support to Kansas city, which
has made a strong campaign. The
Colliseum, as at present arranged,
does not answer nearly the demand.
We will strive to arrange a system of
new galleries. Mr. New will be here
In a short time to see. what we can
do. We are considering urging the
rapid construction of the new Sev
enth Regiment armory, which will
be adequate, or failing In that, to
build a temporary wigwam. Chica
go mu:t hustle to land .both conventions."

Forestry .Official Says Oregon Must
Draw on Northern Supply.
"Within 15 years Oregon will be
buying lumber from Canada," said
Knos A. Mills of the United States
forestry bureau this morning, says
the Oregon Dally Journal. Mr. Mills
Is thj special lecturer of the forestry
service and Is traveling over nearly
the whole of the country speaking
on behalf of the conservatism of the
Mr. Mills is probably the most In
teresting man In the government for
estry service today. He has traveled
on foot over almost the entire coun
try, especially through the mountain
ous districts of the western states and
Alaska. Years ago when Oregon was
a very new state he followed a pre
carious trail up the Columbia and
found much of what wag then tho
virgin forest land of Oregon and
Washington. He went many places
that man had never been before,
merely following his desire to learn
everything possible about what he
had chosen for his life studytrees.
He Is the owner of one of the most
original and delightful places in the
country the Long's Park Inn, a
hnUF built far up on the side of
I.on iak, Colorado, constructed
rtlrely of logs which have been
through forest fires. There is not
a drop of paint on tbe premises the
aecoration Is furnished by the deli
cate carving wrought on the bark
and logs by the flames.
"I am not strongly In favor or fea
orai nwnershlD of the forests," said
Mr. Mills at the Portland hotel this
morning. "The best thing is for each
state to take up the forestry work
and operate to save everything os
sible. Our floods and our clogged
up streams like the Columbia and the
Mississippi are both the result of the
deforestation of the country. The
Columbia has a good channel and
would be free of the mud which now
fills It If trees were planted near the
deadwaters to retain the soil Instead
of allowing it to be washed down.
"The western states are making
little effort to save their forests
they are letting the lumberman de
stroy everything as fast as they wish
to. Timber land In private hands
will not be saved that has been
proven too often. If each state con
trolled the timber within Its boun
daries that is a reasonable propor
tion of It and logged off a certain
amount each year an amount that
would correspond to the annual re
forestation forestry would pay well
and at the same time the valuable
tlmberland would be kept as a heri
tage for future times.
"In the east several states have
taken up the work, notably Pennsyl
vania, which made a start with 10,
000 acres, and is now Increasing its
holdings. New Tork has followed
suit and Michigan and Wisconsin are
making a beginning toward repairing
the wrong done by extravagant and

son of Dublin, Ga. "She has takrn

!tWO CROPS SPUDS IN ONE YEAR
Salem Grower Exhibits a Freak in
The most interesting and newest
feature of the board of trade exhibit
Is a potato vine which Is 9 feet In
length and under which grew 16
large potatoes, weighing 11 pounds,
says the Salem Statesman. The po
tatoes are of the Burbank variety
and were raised by H. S. Belle, pro
prietor of the Grand Union Tea store
at 271 Commercial street.
Mr. Bell Is a well experienced hand
at potato raising, having In former
years resided on a farm three miles
east of this city where, during one
season, he raised 3350 bushels of po
tatoes from eight acres.
"The only time of the year I like
potatoes Is In May and I most gen
erally have my new potatoes at that
time," said Mr. Bell.
On a piece of ground about 40 feet
square on his property at 226 Church
street, Mr. Bell plants potatoes two
times a year, the first crop being
planted In December and harvested In
May Immediately after which the seo
ond crop Is planted, a sample of
which can be seen at the board of
trade rooms. Raising his own pota
toes Is one of Mr. Bell's hobbles.
The convention of E. R. Coon by
a Jury In the United States district
court for conspiring to counterfeit
government coins with Albert Turn
er, Elmer Turner and H. K. Mills
brings to close one of the most fa
mous criminal cases that has been
tried in Portland for years, says tho
Journal. Coon was found guilty on
four counts, John II. Williams and
Hans Johannsen also tried with Coon
. Coon, Williams, Johannsen, Mills
and the Turner brothers were arrest
ed a year ago last June near Hunt
ington, Oregon. Coon, Williams and
Johannsen had only been out of Mc
Neil's Island, a few months when the
federal authorities grew suspicious of
their actions and ran down what they
believed to be a gigantic scheme to
defraud the government by manufac
turing spurious coins. Their move
ments were watched for several
months and their arrests followed.
Thomas Foster, secret service ope
rative, discovered the plot and work
ed up the case. He traced the move
ments of the men who were augment
ed by the turner brothers of Idaho
and Mills from Portland to New York
and in Texas. The scheme was one
of the most elaborate ever framed up
and at the trial last week the govern
ment had witnesses from five states,
some coming from New York, others
from Texas, while many were from
Idaho, Washington and Oregon.
At the time of the arrest of the
men on the Bastnln ranch near Hunt
ington, 11 ex-convicts were found em
ployed in the vicinity and the authori
ties had to deal with the most des
perate set of chlmlnals to be found;
In the state. ,
With the exception of mills and
one of the Turner' brothers, all of the
men tried have served terms In va
rious penitentiaries. "Old Man"
Williams has served 27 years In pen
itentiaries so far as can be traced.
but It Is believed that he has serve 3
at least 10 more that could not be
found against him, making a total
of about 37 years he has served out
of a life of 76 years. He Is gray
bearded and wears a long, flowing
All the men were Indicted by the
last federal grand Jury on four counts
and Coon was found guilty on all of
them. The Turners and Mills plead
ed gujlty to the Indictment before the
trial and were used as witnesses
against their confederates named In
Of Special Value to Many Here In
The progress made In medicine
during the last few years has been
as a whole general rather than spe
cific. One of the most notable discoveries
and one that undoubtedly appeals
more than anything else to many
people here In Pendleton is the com
bination of stomach remedies in the
Ml-o-na treatment. This prescrip
tion has worked wonders, and there
Is now no excuse for anyone suffering
with Indigestion or weak stomach.
It acts specifically upon the muscles
of the stomach and bowels, strength
ening and stimulating them so that
they readily take care of the food
that Is eaten. It also Increases the
flow of gastrlo Juices, thus getting
from the food the nourishment that
tr necessary for health and energy.
The symptoms of Indigestion are
numerous, such as distress after eat
ing, fatulence, heart-burn, sick
headaches, dizziness and Irritability,
These are all dispelled by a few doses
of Ml-o-na when the trouble Is re
cent, but Just as surely as long and
chronic cases If the treatment Is fol
lowed for a reasonable length of time.
So positive are the good effects
following the use of Ml-o-na that the
remedy Is sold by Tallman & Co. un
der an absolute guarantee to refund
the money If It should fall to cure.
With an offer like this none can af
ford to suffer long from Indigestion
or stomach troubles.
Do not think because of the quick
benefits derived from the use of Ml-o-na
that It Is .merely a temporary
agent It Is a remedy that cures by
making over the weak stomach Into
a strong one.

Yakima Mun Harvests SJ8000 Worth
of Spuria on 40 Acres.
Attorney Vestal Snyder now has a
force of 25 men at work harvesting
his 40-acre field of potatoes, says tho
Yakima Republic. A modern four
horse digger Is one of the Implements
employed In the field. The harvest
ers are camped on the ground and
are prosecuting the work with vigor
Notwithstanding the advanced
price of hay this year and the eager
market for It at current prices, Mr.
Snyder plowed up 40 acres of alfal
fa nnd put the field to orchard and
He obtained a fine growth of fruit
trees for the first year and will have
at least BOO tons of the Netted Gem
potatoes, a very large and excellent
russet variety, for which he has al
ready been offered $16 a ton. He has
not sold, however.
Mr. Snyder picked up four potatoes
In the field this morning, Just as he
passed over the rows on which the
digger had operated, which have an
aggregate weight of 16 pounds. So
many large potatoes, many quite as
large as those which he picked up,
were seen along the upturned rows
that he didn't think It worth while
to bring in the samples he weighed.
; Attorney Snyder, whose farm is lo
cated about six miles west of the
city, ' under the Yakima Cnnal com
pany's ditch, now has about 70 acres
In fruits on his place and will plant
25 acres more next spring.
