To hia credit and greatly to the
benefit of every rancher 1-n Wallowa,
and Union counties. Senator Turner
Oliver' is giving as much of his at
tention as possible to ferreting out
patches of white mustard weed In
his two counties, and Is taking an
active interest in laboring to check
and eradicate the pest. The weed
today has f astened. upon many., por
tion of Union coanty to the detri
ment of Union county lands. And
in thai ach nei bears as many
as 300,000 seeds, the danger of such
a pest la apparent to every rancner
'iu the county. -
Fin,e forLeVJrifl it Grow.
It will be of interest to alt resi-
, dents of the county" to kn'ow that
fine o' from$50 to 100 for eacn
offense Is levied upon any individu
al resident of the county who falls
tn oxtftrmlmajtft the Pest. Towns

growth within their corporate limits
are subject to a fine of ?aoo paw
to the county. In addition, to the
fines, individuals may be subject
to pay. , .....
Nature of Weocf.
Senator Oliver has made a close
stud of thl dameerous peat, and
every land holder will agree with
him when he -says that a few vig
orous presecutions are necessary in
order to check the encroachments
thu wnml unon the land. So far
as the Senator has observed, there
Is little of the weed in Wallowa,
county. But Union county isi over
run .' with it end whole fields in
places are choked by it and crops
ruined. Along the railway, the only
point at which the Senator has ob
served the weed In this county is
about the 0. R. & N." station la
Joseph, Here It may be, said that
' all railways are subject to a maxi
mum fine of $100 for permitting! tie
weed to grow along their right of
wnj'. - .
The weed 1 carried Into the
county by freight cars and the seed.
Is so small that Its dissemination
Id wide Moreover tne plant Itself
is so shaped when ripe as to roll
before the wind like a tumble-
wesd, scattering thousands of seeds
everywhere. Senator Oliver be
lieves that proper cutting of th
pest .will exterminate it. In that
the seeds do not appear to retain
vitality year upon year as the of
tht yellow mustard.

DEATHV OF MRS. N08LE8 1
JULY 15, AT ASOTIN
So-called "near beer" heard it
death knell sounded In Wallow
county by the Jury to Uie case of
the State of Oregon vs. John Mit
chell and Johm Pipes of Wallowa.
Both defendant were found guilty.
Alleged "near beer" was foundl 'to
contain, on chemical analysis, 5.39
per cent, alcohol. Ordinary laser
beer was found, on analysis, to con
tnto. from 3 to 6 per cent alcohol.
So-called "near beer" was thus found
to be an intoxicating beverage and
as such was ound to be in violation'
of the Wallowa county local option
law when Bold,
I " A Big Verdict
No Jurv within recent months in
this county has made so Important
a decision. The finding of the Jurors
virtually sounds the death knell or
so-called "near beer" In this county,
and means that Instead of Hie al
of the intoxicant proml3coualy and
openly and with impunity, it must bo
either "bootlegged" as in the case
of whisky, or not sold at aUi during
the operation of the present law.
The verdict on the testimony in the
case annihilates, the presumed le
gality of near beer" as a roercnant
able commodity. This will probably
make ithe breweries howl.
