WOOL PRICE IS
Weather Condition More Fa
vorable Than Usual for
Lambing Season; Too Much
Mud is Only Drawback.
The winter lambing of Smythc
brothers, well known sheepmen, is on
in full swing nt. Arlington, where 12,
000 ewes are being shed lambed, says
Dan Smythe. He states also that the
Pendleton Sheep Co. lambing Is under
way at Pine City, where six or seven
thousand ewes are being shed lambed
and that Tulloch & Smythe will begin..
lambing on their ranch 1G miles soutn
westjiif Pendleton February 25, while
iho Umatilla Sheep Co. will begin on
March 1 at the sheep ranch .10 miles
southwest of here.
Weather conditions, Mr. Smythe
says, are excellent, aside from the ex
cessive mud. Winter grass is better
than for yenrs past and most of the
young lambs have been turned out on
the range, where feed Is better now
ithnn at any time last spring.
! The nirceiitage of lambs, according
I to report. Is far above the normal, Mr.
Smvthv says. Sheep are in lino condi
tion and with the present mild wenth-
er, prospoctB look exceedingly favor
able for the lambing season. Tho la
bor situation Is good also as plenty of
efflc ent men are obtainable.
The only flaw in the whole situation,
Mr. Smythe remarks, is the low wool
price atid the fact that wool cannot be
sold, as well as the .low market for

Jack Peare of Xa Grande hopes to
succeed Milton A. Miller as collector
of internal revenue for this district.
In furtherance of his candidacy for

considerable support in behalf of his
candidacy. Petitions are now being
circulated locally In his behalf, one ot
them being at the Downey Meat Mar

Peare is In the Jewelry business In

activities. He Is prominent mem
ber of the Knights of Columbus and
in connection with the work of that
organization has visited Pendleton on
No local aspirants have appeared!
for this office and Peare is the only
man who has thus far sought local
support for this position.
That Mr. Peare stands an excellent
chance of being named for the place
is the opinion of Marion Jack, prom

is the only candidate from eastern
Oregon for this position and that this
is the only position eastern Oregon re-
