for the week have been: Cattle

horses nad mules 54.
The cattle market has held steady
at last week's rally. The conflict
among the buyers for the light offer
ings caused a stiffening of prices,' and
at a somewhat lower basis than the
prevailing market for several
months, sellers were enabled to have
pretty much their own way. Any
market which pays (6 and (6.25 for
grass steers must be classed as high.
Cows sold at $5.60, which Is a re
The hog market strengthened
about 10c; the demand was active.
In the face of liberal receipts ln
the sheep division the market re
mained steady to strong. There was
a shading of prices in the market for
lambs, but for ewes and wethers a
steady condition prevailed.
There was a fairly active movement
ln the horse market, and the sales
reported Indicate steady prices.
Following are representative sales
Steers, $5.90 to $6.25 ; cows, $5.15 to
$5.60; lambs, $5.75 to $6.25; wethers,

Apparent Forgeries of Names May
Save Normal School Appropriation.
' It has become known that not only
are the University of Oregon referen
dums under investigation because uf
the contention that a large percentage
of the names are forgeries, but also
some quiet work has been done relat
ing to the referendum on the appro
priation of $50,000 for use at the
State. Normal school ' at Monmouth,'
says the Salem Statesman. It is de
clared that a majority of the names
on the latter petition are of the same
character as on the University of Ore
gon j-eferendums. Those who are
back of the Investigation are as yet
unknown, but from statements of
Judge W. T. Slater, former supreme
court justice, who has been retained
to prosecute the civil action that is
said to be pending, there seems to be
no doubt but that the signatures on
both petitions and also on the-Malar-key
bill petition, are the product of
the same person.
That developments will come thick
and fast when once the matter has
been brought Into court, as Judge Sla
ter says it will be, there seems to
be no question of doubt to those who
have watched proceedings.
Before the date, for the University
of Oregon appropriation bill to go
into effect, January 12, 1912, both
criminal and civil actions will be
brought. The criminal action will In
volve charges of forgery and the
civil action will be brought to test the
validity of the petitions. Judge Blater
Bald that with regard to the criminal
action he had no further Interest
than to see, "those fellows sent up."
He, however, has full charge of the
civil action, but suid that there was
no' hurry ln starting proceedings, as
there Is plenty of time before the
appropriation goes Into effect.
"It 'Is an alarming state of affairs
when the referendum powers can be
so shamefullly abused," said Justice
Slater yesterday. '
Joseph Hirschberg of Independence
has - been examining the Norma!
School petition and he declares that
there Is no question but that a ma
jority of the names are forgeries..

Conrad Krebs Falls in Lake Whllq
. Fishing, But Is Rencucd.
Conrad Krebs, of Salem, one of the
best-known hop men ln the West, ex
perienced a close call from death by
drowning at Three Rivers Lake, In
Tillamook County, Thursday. Mr.
Krebs left Portland Wednesday, In
company with Kola Neis and Julius
Plncus, and intended spending the
week fishing in Tillamook County.
The story of his adventure was
brought out by Sam Goldsmith, of
Tillamook, who was In Portland Sat
Mr. Krebs fell from a boat while
trying to land a large trout and be
fore he could be seized had sunk
twice. Mr. Nels leaped Into the water
after him and also came near drown
ing, but was helped out by Mr. Pln
cus and th. two of them then suc
ceeded In getting Krebs to the shore,
where after a time he was revived
and taken to a farmer's house.
This Is the second time Mr. Krebs
has nearly lost his life while fishing
In that section. Two years ago he
fell from the rocks on the Tillamook
coast, and but for the prompt efforts
of his companions would have per
ished in the surf.
Game licenses continue to be In de
maud, and scarcely a day passes that
County Clerk E. M. Smith is not
called on to issue the proper legal au
thority to either fish or hunt, or to
do both. Since the first of the year

out; hunter's and angler's, 53; and of

SALEM, Or. June 17 After placing
the utmost confidence ln prisoners he
has "farmed" out to different state in
stitutlons, and even offering to wager
that they would not attempt to abuse
the trust he places In them, Governor
West this morning was called out of
bed by the prison authorities and in
formed that Jess Hall, sentenced to
the penitentiary from Multnomah
County for attempted robbery and
granted the privilege of leaving the
institution to work ungarded at the
Home for the Feeble Minded, stole a
horse and saddle from a nearby tesl-
dent early this morning and escaped.
Hall was serving an Indeterminate sen
tence, and finding him a good prison
er. Governor west inciuaeo. mm
among the exclusive ones to be prac
tically turned loose one month ago.
Hall worked along with the other
prisoners and heretofore has made no
attempts to get away, but without
leaving the slightest clew behind, he
stole from the bunkhouse this morn
ing, crossed the road to an adjoining
farm and stole a horse, saddle and
bridle, and today cannot be found.
Having every confidence In the men
Governor West refused to order
guards to watch the prisoners sta
tioned at the School for the Feeble
Minded and they have been given a
free rein at the Institution for the
past two months, with no one to look
after them. Recently the Governor
boasted of the fact that he sent for a
convict at the School for the Feeble
Minded who came to town alone and
went back to the Institution alone,
and that every man at that place
would do the same thing If he so re
Three spcial officers have been
sent out to look for Hall, and It Is
probable he will receive strict treat
ment If found and returned to the in
stitution. Governor West says he will
hound a man to the end of the earth
who violates confidence and runs off.
