rus II. Walker of the I.inn County
grange dct-iiron to co-itradi t the
statement that tho eastern Oregon
grangts are opposed to the referen
dum on the university appropria
tion. Secretary Walker him re
ceived a letter from a prominent at
torney ol i 'an von City, (irant
county, whereiu it is Htated that
out of Ho interviewed 75 readily
nigund the petition and he believes
that with a cauvaHs 1,0(10 signa
tures could easily be obtained i:.
that section. The signers repre
Hent practically all the leading bus
inoHH and professional men, to
gether with the county officials. An
"Tho people of this county and
especially tlrant county, are too
much imbued with good common
horse cense to stand for the bill
No considerable portion of the
signers here have a fight against
the university, nor against auy edu
cational institution; yet wo do not
believe the legislature should go ho
far in its wonderful bonevolouco ns
tosotasido $12.r,000 or auy other
sum or amount, to the University of
Oregon without placing on that ap
propriation some restriction ns to
the tioie, purpose nud use. The
rogeuts of the university are con
sidorod men of the highent mental
and moral calibre aud themselves
consider it unjust for the legisla
ture to. place them in the embaras
iug position of expending tho
amount of the annual appropria
tion, whether the need actually
exists or not."

Salt Lake Bays: "The University
of Oregon o'efeated the University
of Utah in the interstate debate at
Barrett hall. Two judges favored
Oregon and one favored Utah.
"The question was, Uesolved,
that the fifteenth ameudtueut and
section twoofthe fouiteenth amend
ment to the constitution to the
United States should be repealed,
it being conceded that the difficulty
in the way of repealing shall not
enter into the discussion."
"Utah had the affirmative. Rich
ard W. Young Jr., of Utah, was the
first speaker. He dwelt on the un
soundness of theory and the un
soundness of practice of the 15tb
amendment. J. C. Veatch of Ore-1
gon spoke next. He dwelt on the
treachery the amendment prevents,
and said the white man is not ruled
by the negro. Chris Jensen, cham
pion of the Utah team, quoted
promiueut educators, newspapers
and leading statesmen to show the
unsoundness of theory and practice

Furnish the Company With
a Copy of Their Decision
The Commission Declares the $5.00
per Ton Rate on Lumber to Frisco
Excessive, and Advises that Old
Rate of $3.10 be Restored.
In an opinion rendered upon the
complaint of the Lumber Manufact
urers' Association against the
Southern Pacific Company the rail
road commission declared the 5
per ton rate on rough lumber to
San Francisco Bay points excessive
and in conflict with the ruiiogs of
the interstate omource law, and
says the old rate of 10 should be
restored. If thin ord-r is not car
ried into effect by the S jithern Pa
cific in a itasouaLle length of time
the rate will be declared unlawful
and the case formelly placed before
the interstate commerce commission.
The opinion in substance says:
"The commission being fuily ad-
! vised iu the premises, fiu'is the rate
of $ per ton -of 2000 pounds
charged by defendant for the trans
portation of common green fir lum
ber in straight carloads from Port
land to San Francisco is excessive
in amount aud discriminating and
in conflict with the rulings, orders
and regulations of the interstate
commerce law and that in the opio
iou of the commission a rate of
$'i 10 per ton of 2000 pouods is a
reasonable charge lor defendant to
make between points in Oregon and
California poiuts, aud that defend
ant should make such lower rate ef
fective betweeu all of said poiuts."
A certified copy of the opinion
will be presented to the Southern
Pacific with the request that its
suggebtiou be followed out and the
rate changed to $3.10 per ton, car
