SHERIFF COMMITS SUICIDE
Alderman, of Tillamook,
Himself in Fit of
Henry H. Alderman, Sheriff of
Tillamook county, shot himself in his
own barn early Sunday morning,
death resulting instantly.
Sheriff Alderman had been seriously
ill for more than a month and in
addition to his physical troubles there
had arisen unfortunate gossip grow
ing out of a dispute with accountants
regarding a discrepancy in his books,
which he declared he could and would
make good, in full.
Combined with his ill health, his
financial troubles apparently unsettled
the Sheriff's mind temporarily, and
he became despondent. When he
arose Sunday morning he had appar
ently no thought of committing the
deed, as he at once began the usual
About 7 :30 o'clock he got up and
awakened tho hired girl. Then he
apparently went immediately to the
barn, a short distance away.
When the girl went to the barn half
an hour after to milk she noticed
blood stains upon the ground floor.
Going to the upper floor she discover
ed the body of Sheriff Alderman lying
prostrate upon the boards. Evidently
when alone in the barn his despondent
condition had reached its climax, and
prompted by his characteristic im
petuous nature, he had committed the
deed instantly. The pistol from which
he had sent a bullet into his mouth
was lying a few inches away.
Sheriff Alderman was about 40 years
of age. He had lived in Tillamook
county for many years, and had held
the office of Sheriff for the past seven
years. A month ago he made a trip
to the southern part of the county,
and there suffered a spell of sickness
from which he never fully recovered.
He left a wife and one child.
The dead Sheriff was a member of
the Masonic order, as well as of the
Oddfellows, Knights of Pythias, Wood
men of the World and Ancient Order
of United Workmen.
The financial troubles reached their
height on last Friday, when a warrant
was made out for his arrest, it being
alleged that his accounts were $7000
short. By his residence of many years
in Tillamook county Sheriff Alderman
had acquired property worth con
siderably more than the sum said to
be missing. He also carried a heavy
life insurance. He had declared that
he was able to fully pay for any un
conscious error in his books, and if
the report of the accountants is con
firmed, this will be done. A number
of friends have stood by him faith
fully, never doubting his integrity.

OREGON SHEEP ARE BEST
Such Is Judgment of Ohio Breeder,
Expert and Writer.
A. A. Bates, of Ohio, left Saturday
night for home, after having attended
the livestock convention in Portland
acted as judge of sheep at the Dallas
Livestock Show, and visited several
localities in this state to study the
sheep industry. Ho is a writer for
the American Sheep Breeder, one of
the leading journals of that branch of
the livestock industry, and is himself
a breeder of fancy stock. His high
opinion . of Oregon will therefore be
effective in deciding breeders through
out the country where conditions are
unfavorable to look in this direction
for locations, and those whose flocks
need improvement will turn to Oregon
for strong, healthy animals. He said
"My observations have convinced
me that Oregon is the best place in
the United States for breeding sheep
and goats. With an abundance of
green stuff, mild climate and every
advantage for production of the best
foodstuffs' to make prime mutton,
there is no other place to compare with
it. Lambing is early and the lambs
can have the best of range, going to
higher altitudes as the season ad
vances, where they have an abundance
of shad pure water and at all periods
plenty of fresh grass, stimulating
growth and making it possible to grow
the largest, soundest animalsT have
ever found in any locality.
GOOD GRADE OF SHEEP
"The grade of stock grown is also
good. The Baldwin Sheep and Land
Company,' in Eastern Oregon, in
Crook County, have some of the finest
rams I have seen. Moreover; the
climate seems particularly well adapt
ed to the best development and growth.
The rains wash the wool clean and
there is extraordinary freedom from
diseases that beset flocks in some por
tions of the country, where more
severe weather occurs.
"Oregon -is rapidly becoming the
breeding ground for the best classes
of sheep in the country. It is today
the breeding ground for the supply
demanded in Middle States feeding
lots, because there is no other place
where such a large percentage of
lambs can be saved.
"It may not be generally known,
even here in Oregon, but the Willam
ette Valley is the only place la America
where long-wool sheep can be grown
successfully. I have seen flocks of
the long-wool varieties that could not
be excelled in England, and Great
Britain has been given credit for the
best in the world in that line. When
the Oregon breeders fully realize their
valuable advantages for this breed
ing, the rest of the country will come
here instead of going abroad for rams,
The wool is of the best fiber, clean and
long, and the animals attain greater
weight than elsewhere. There were
some animals at the Dallas show that
could not be surpassed anywhere.
GOAT8 DO WELL HERE.
"I have paid some attention to goats
also, but my visit to Oregon has been
the means of giving me some con
ception of the importance to which
that branch of the livestock Industry
has come. There were 20 exhibitors
of goats at Dallas, having some 60
animals. I have never seen better,
and they were of greater weight and
produce better mohair than those of
the Southwest. The fiber is longer
and of good quality, while their skin
is white and free from blemish, the
mohair commanding a higher price
in the market than is paid for mohai
grown in other sections.
"The sheep breeding business is in
its infancy here, as it is throughout
the country, and growei'3 are just be-
ginning to grasp the details that
should be adopted and mean most for
its future. In the Willamette Valley
there are more of such animals grown
than in any other farming region of
the country. But the farmers should
adopt some lessons from their English
cousin. Kutabagas, carrots, beets
and other succulent roots and grains
can be produced in abundance. By
feeding these things properly mutton
can be made of flavor to command
the highest market prices. In Great
Britain mutton for certain consump
tion is fed entirely on certain rations.
Some people laugh at the idea, but it
is proved beyond dispute."

DALLAS IS MAKING STEADY
AND HEALTHY GROWTH
Population of City
People Inside the Corporate Limits
Dallas' population has passed the 1500 mark. The census just completed
by the Observer shows that the total number of inhabitants of the city at the
present time is 1523. Of this number, 1419 are inside the corporate limits, and
74 live in the immediate suburbs. The population inside the city limits in
1900, according to the. Government count, was 1271. It will therefore be seen
that the gain in population in three
The Observer's count of the number
of people living in Dallas was com
pleted last Thursday. A careful
enumeration shows the number of in
habitants to be 1523. Mr. F. G. Elliott,
wno maae- tne count, visited every
residence, hotel and lodging house in
the city, and carefully enumerated the
people living at each place. No in
formation relative to nativity, occupa
tion or nationality was sought, the
only object of the count being to
ascertain the exact number of people
living in Dallas at the present time.
The result cannot be other than
gratifying to every citizen, as it proves
that Dallas is making a steady and
healthy growth. It is true that in
dividual estimates have placed the
population as high as 1600 or 1800, but
such estimates are optimistic as a
rule, and a "count of noses" is needed
once in awhile to keep us from placing
our figures too high.
The population inside the city limits
by wards is as follows :
First ward 508
Second ward 501
Third ward.. 440
No people outside the city limits
were counted except those who may be
properly classed as suburban resi
dents. Taking the courthouse as a
starting point, our enumerator covered
the following territory : North to the
Chapman prune orchard; East to the
W. W. Miller house; South to J. B.
Nunn's farm, and West to the reservoir
site. The property cnbraeed in this
area is all st rietly subuiban, and uone
of tbe-pointn lii-iw r.j,'t,ir.cd lift' more

The count was made by visiting
every business house and residence in
the city and ascertaining the exact
number of people living in each house.
No enumeration was made of college
students whose homes are outside of
Dallas, and none of the laborers em
ployed in "the sconstruction of the
waterworks were counted except those
who are actual residents of the city.
The following statistics as to sex,
age and domestic conditions will
doubtless prove interesting to the
Observer's readers :

PLEASED WITH HIS PURCHASE
C. Mathers Says American Goat
Breeders Are Recognizing the
Value of Large Angoras.
N. C. Mathers, . a prominent goat
breeder of Cambria, California, writes
the Bural Northwest as follows :

November 15, Mr. Hoerle seems to take
some satisfaction in the fact that some
of the American goat breeders

goras, such as he has always favored
I concur with Mr.
Hoerle in his ;
opinions and I have tried to follow
his advice since I entered the goat
business eight years ago, but have
had rather poor success in tho matter
of size on account of not being able to
get such bucks as I wanted. A short
time ago, however, I purchased a buck-
kid from Mr. U. S. Grant, of Dallas,
who advertises in your columns, and
I am glad to say that I now have an
animal that just suits-my fancy. He
is very large, being almost the size of
yearlings, symmetrical in form, with
a grand carriage, and carrying a
fleece that hangs in long spiral ring
lets all over his body from his horns
almost down to his hoofs, and if it
continues to grow -as it is now doing,
the hair will reach tho ground before
spring. I have been unable to find
any kemp at all in his fleece. I con
sider him a beauty and believe in
time he will be a match for Cortez.
"I hope that success will attend the
efforts of all who are trying to build
up the Angora and mohair business
in all its branches, both of production
A Hard Story.
Fifty years ago Breeze Gibson and
his brother, George D. Gibson, now of
Pomeroy, Washington, when they
were small boys on the Polk county
farm in the Eola hills, cut open a
small oak sapling and inserted in it a
small stone. They agreed that in

The number of voters inside the city
limits, as enumerated by wards, is as
follows : First ward, 153 ; second ward,
155 ; third ward, 175, Total, 483.
The total number of voters in Dallas,
including the suburbs, Is 504.
The number of dwelling houses, by
wards, is as follows : First ward, 128 ;
second ward, 12(3; third ward, 83
Total 337. At tho time of tho enumera
tion, only two vacant dwelling houses
were found in the-city -one of these is
an old, tumbled-down shack in Ger
mantown, so dilapidated that it is un
fit for occupancy ; the other is a house
in Second Ward from which a family
has recently moved, and which i
already rented to other parties.
The per centage of families owning
their homes is as follows : First ward,
60 per cent ; second ward, G9 per cent ;
third ward, 64 per cent.
The number of small families in
Dallas is remarkable. If a similar
state of affairs exists elsewhere in the
United States, our worthy President
has good grounds for his fear of
"race extinction." Eighty-three fam
ilies are childless, and in each of 76
homes there is but one child. The
number of families with two children
is larger, and in many homes the
olive branches number from four to
six. One good couple has been blessed
with nine children, and in one happy
home in the Second Ward seven small
boys standing in a row remind one of
a flight of stairs.
Our enumerator found the people of
Dallas cheerful, contented and pros
perous. No visible signs of squalor
or privation were any whore in evi
dence, and improvements were noted
on every hand.
The census just completed shows
that the town is steadily moving for
ward, and that tho growth is of a sub
stantial character. At tho present
rate of increase in population, the day
is not far distant when Dallas will be
a busy and thriving town of 2000
fifty years they would return to the
spot and cut down the tree and see
how it had taken care of the stone.
They found tho tree over a foot

over the stone. What is more strange,
the wood around tho stone has itself
turned to stone. This piece of the oak
treo, with the stone ingeniously im
bedded and grown over is now at the
Statesman office, and it will bo put in
the museum of tho Stato Historical
Society at Portland. Tho tree stood

inside of tho next three weeks. Tho
