Pendleton finished sec ond, Ontario third, and La Grand fourth. The failure of the Island City and Union representatives to show up narrowed the meet to five teams. Though Baker's winning margin was large, the meet was not decided until the last two events. In both of which, the victorious team took all but one point. Tlie surprise of the day va the manner In which the Pendleton team took the lead with the very first went and held It until the next to the last event of the day was pulled off. This showing In the face of the fact that the locals had been figured out of the running is a source of mucn satisfaction to the Pendleton school and Its supporters. With one more strong man the victory would have remained In this city. Gordon the Star of Meet. Chester Gordon' of this city, with 15 points to his credit, was the star point winner of the day, taking first In the 50, the 100 and the 120-yara dashes, these being all the events In Many burned, having caught fire from sparks.

Evidence was given today in the government's suit against Wmiam Hanley, accused of illegally "fencing" 80.000 acres of public lands In Harney county, Ore gon. It helped to sustain the con tention that the lands are barred against entrance by private individ uals. B. A. Smith and Charles Wells. sheep growers of eastern Oregon, tes tified for the government. The gov ernment lands enclosed br th TTn. ley fence are not easy of access un. aer tne present conditions. Frank C. Davey, receiver of the land office With five new Indictments, seven sentences, the grand jury investigat- ng another case and still another one on trial it is evident that the present brief session of the grand Jury and circuit court Is a busy one. Three of tne five Indictments were against Umatilla men charged with selling liquor in violation of the local option law, while the other two have not been made public yet for the reason that the persons indicted have not been arrested. Two of the Umatilla men, F. W. Cline and J. Johnson, have heen sen tenced while the other man, Joe Mor rison has pleaded guilty and will be sentenced this afternoon or tomorrow morning. Cllne paid a fine of $250 while Johnson was fined $600 which he secured after some delay. The other five sentenced were J , A. Crowley, Michael Iiurke, David Clark, Henry Henderson, and Fred Hook or Oakley. Henderson was elven six monthj for throwing a rock through the Pullman car window near Gibbon station a few weeks ago. Hook was given two years for forging Mayor Murphy s name. The other three men are the ones who cracked the safe In the Sim Culley store at Weston, They entered pleas of guilty to the charge of larceny from a store and the other charges against them were dismissed. Crossley and Burke were given seven years each, while Clarke, the younger of the trio, was let off with five years. Crossley recently completed serving a five year sentence In the Oregon penitentiary and it is believed that Burke has also been Inside the walls of the Salem Institution before. This afternoon the grand jury is Investigating the case against Mike Ryan, the aged bachelor farmer, who killed H. E. Dixon, in a quarrel over road, last week. Jacob Shubert, the man who was wounded by the same bullet which killed Dixon, came down from Walla Walla this morning and is giving his testimony before the grand Jury this afternoon. The widow and six-year-old son of the dead man also came down from the ranch near Milton. The case of the state against Charles Grant, indicted for the selling of liquor contrary to the prohibition law, is still on trial today, but it Is believed that it will be finished and given to the Jury late th8 afternoon New rate books, giving the new In surance ratings for the city of Pen dleton were received this morning by the local Insurance representatives. These are Important In that they an nounce for the first time the exact amount of the reductions made on In surance for Pendleton property as a result of the recent investigations car ried on by representatives of the in surance adjusters. In the business section of the city- only those buildings which have been rewired In accordance witlj the de mands of the adjusters have been giv en reductions. These amount to from 10 to 15 per cent. The reduction for dwellng houses is 25 per cent while that for detached dwellings is 33 1-3 per cent. It will thus he seen that those per sons who have refused to rewire their buildings will not profit by the re cent reductions until they conform to the requirements of the association. The change in the rates do not affect the poor risks.

With the assembly hall of the Normal school crowded to the doors with a throng of admiring friends and relatives, 11 graduates were last night handed the little rolls of sheepskin certifying to the fact that they had completed the prescribed course of the eastern Ore gon State Norma school. While the exercises were among the most suc cessful ever held they were also the most pathetic. In addition to the -fact that commencement is always a sad season for students, this was -made doubly so by reason of the fact that it is to be the last commencement for the local institution, for two years at least. Flowers were piled high about the- front of the platform and at the con clusion of the evening's exercises scores of people pressed forward for the farewell leave-taking. The commencement oration was delivered by Judge Stephen A. Low ell of Pendleton, who delivered an ex ceptionally able and eloquent address to the graduates.
