Small Apparently Won Fight to
Force Postponement of Ar
rest Until Term Expires.
'He Cannot Abide by Oath of
Office and Surrender Power
of That Office' Says Official.
BPRIXGHKLD, Ills., July 25. U.
P. Governor Len Small has appur-(
cntly won the fight to force postpone
ment of his arrest and trial, on charges
of Juggling $1"I,iXiH,(Jimi of state funds,
until after his term of office expires.
Sheriff Hester, of Shangomon County,
upon whom the duty of serving the
warrants will fall, told the rolled
Press today he would use no force to
arrest the indicted governor, state
troops will probably he stationed In
."pringfield immediately for the pro
lection of the governor.
Hester's statement brought relief to
the .state capital, which had hud vi
sions of clashes between the peace and
military forces over Small's arrest.
Kheriff Hester said he would honestly
try to serve the warrants andie might
give the governor some worry. He sain
he would use tact and diplomacy, but
not force. Judge Smith tomorrow Is
expected to decide whether Small is
amenable to arrest and order Hester to
take him Into custody. -I'nless the
governor submits to tb4..rreiit. Hester
will probably Inform him that he holds
a "warrant for his arrest and the mat-
ter will rest there, until Small finish-1
es him term. "It makes no difference
what happen to Len Small." said the
governor, "but the governor of the
state cannofjield theaexecutlve power
to the Jodloial. tie cannot abide by)
his oath of office, and surrender the
power of that office."

Damage to Crops Will Not be
Serious Unless Rains Contin
ue Say Farmers, Grain $Ien.
I While a continued rain of several
. . .
any would seriously damage Lmatiua
rounty wheat crop by 'bleaching the
grain, today's precipitation will not
damage it, say farmers and grain men.
It is not the first rain but the su-bse-lthe
quent rains which usually damage
1 , i : . - .. 'nv. :
wheat, according to growers. The rain,
while it la continuous, it not heavy
enough to beat down the grain.
Harvesting operations are of course
delayed by the rain, causing a consid
erable extra expense to farmers. Even
with the cessation of the rain, it will
take eonsrdi rahle shit, to dry-it suffi
ciently to permit resumption of har
vest. The rainfall i general and ha stop.

in Pendleton today, says that the rain
i in that region began last nighi and is
i continuing steadily today. Tni is also
j trueof the reservation district, accord
I ing to Hnbart Peringer of the Periner
Ranches Co.
Aside from the delay to harvest, a
large amount of hay is still on the
ground and this will suffer because of
the rain. The moisture will be an aid
to the irrigation supply and to the!
grass, and will also be a safeguard:
against forest fires which are feared at I
