East Oregonian: An enterprising young
man named Nannie Howard, who should
eventually have made a shining success
of the cattle business if the law bad not
unkindly tnterfe ed, was a guest Friday
night in Umatilla county's safe and ' sub
stantial metal trimmed lodging bouse.
Nannie, it appears, was in tbe Baker
county jail awaiting trial on five or six .
indictments for cattle-stealing, and five or
six weeks ago, when sent after a bucket
of water, eluded tbe vigilance ol his -guard
and concluded to stay away. Fri
day afternoon he was captured near
Meacham by Deputy Sheriff Kennison,
of Baker county, and brought to Pendle
ton for the night. This morning the
officer returned to Baker with bis pris
oner. - Howard had been in Idaho and

Hood River Glacier: Mr. C. G. Roberts,
who spent tbe tall and winter la tbe far
east, bas again returned to Oregon. W bile '
in Washington, recently, he had tbe pleas- '
are ot a naif boar's chat with tbe great
Grover and Secretary Whitney. He is more
of a Cleveland man than ever since his visit,
and smiles every time be is asked about bis
calling on tbe president. It seems be was
one of many wbo were waiting to see the
president, and as the crowd was very large,
Mr. Roberts began to consider bis ebanoes '
for an interview as very slim; finally a
bright idea struck bim, and pencilling on a
card bis name, followed by tbe legend.
"President of the Hood River Tariff Reform
Club," he. sent it in and followed it a mo
ment later. It was the "open sesame."
The president was mach interested in Ore
gon, speaking particularly of its wool in
terest. Secretary Whitney waa present,
and also showed a keen ioterest in all mat
ters pertaining to this part of the union.
The Searck Fruitless.
East Oregonian: I. W. Miller, the Union
county ehild hunter, is in Penaletoa, Mr.
Miller has at last abandoned his search, and
is returning to bis home ac oummerviue.
He bas traveled 3000 milea by railroad and
long diatanoes on horseback ia Oregon,
Washington and Idaho in search of bis lost
daughter, and feels disappointed tbat tbe
lO' g chase should result so fruitlessly. Sev
eral times he thought be had traoe of the
girl, aod redoubled the vigor and eagerness
ot his hunt, only to find that be had been
pursuing a "will-o'-the-wisp." He ia now
ready to pay a ransom of $1200 to the gyp
sies, if they have her, for tbe return of the
girl to bis borne in Summerville. Mr. Mil
ler latelv visited the Yakima country to see
tbe child living with Indiana there on Sellis
creek, but found that ahe ia not his
daughter. The little girl resembles a pure
blood white child very much ia appearanoe,
but baa some Indian blood in her veins and '
evidently belongs to the tribe with whom
she is bving.
Cruelty to cattle has been very prevalent
this winter. Ranchers bsve left the poor
animals out in tbe open air without food or

of the Canadian Pacific railroad, between
Dooks and Kamloops. heaps of eattla (dying
and dead) are to be seen in open fields, and
not a srisp of straw or food of any descrip
tion in sight. As for shelter, tbe ordinary
rancher would laugh at the idea of patting
np shelter tor eattla. The word bnmsne is
not ia their vocabulary. At Ashcroft,
Kamloops and many other inland grazing,
