Colt said that to employ pasteurization

it would remove the incentive to the

William Boegli, which is situated
about 30 mi lee north ol this place on

the possibilities of Central Oregon as a
fruit growing section. The ranch is
just at the water’s edge, and in a gorge
over 1,000 feet from the level of the
grain growing section of Crook county.
Although there are but about 12
acres in the body that is in bearing
orchard, fruit of all kinds is raised in
great quantities, Including grapes of
the finest varieties and other kinds
that are commonly classed aa tropical
This orchard three years ago pio-
duced over 2,000 bushels of winter ap

keted at $1 per bushel in the local
market. The value of the fruits mar
keted this year will exceed $4,000 and
does not include vegetables, of which
Mr. Boegli raises au abundance.
Considering tbe fact that thia ranch
was purchased but two years ago at ap
proximately $10,000, tbe profits on this

CHARGES AGAINST RUICK.
Said to Have Forced Grand Jury to
Boise, Idaho, Sept. 13.—Judge Diet-
rich in the Federal court yesterday ie-
sued an order for a special grand jury
to appear on Thursday, September 19.
The order was issued at the instance of
Judge M. C. Burch, special assistant
attorney general of the United States,
who is here for the purpose of inquir
ing into matters in qonnection with the
Idaho land frauds.
It is understood here that the order
was really the result of a plea in abate
ment filed by the attorneys for Frank
Martin, one of the men indicted with
Senator Borah and others, which plea
makes serious and eeneational charges
of misconduct on the part of United
States Attorney Ruick.
These charges are that Ruick used
force and coercion in securing the in
dictments of Borah and his fellow de
