He Itiit Nut Try t :a Awar.-VerT
rci-aliar Cu.
Notion;; recently haa been so pro
ductive of gossip '" business circles
us t ! forgery committed In Febru
ury l.y John Keiiiit-r by u lilch be
drew hum Shute's bauk 1 1 500 In
gold. After getting the mouey he
piid m arly $l2nu to Mr. Roy fur bU
farm Mini a lut of personal property.
Tins laud is near Greenville, lu
D.iiry precinct. Hit had already
till to I toy :;iK)iir more. He bought
Roy's interest in the farm aud its
htiM'k, paying $1500. Scinier look
lh property subject to a mort
gage, vvhicli ho assumed.
KeiuuT came hem in November or
December, mid made his home with
his uncle, Bernard Odertuan, his
mother's brother, Mr. (Merman has
known his nephew, John, from boy.
IuhmI. John came from Mappen,
1 Vit In hi it county, Illinois, on the
Mississippi river, a few miles above
.St. E m is. There ho 1ms, or claims
to have, 4(1 acres of luntl. He liked
Oregon ho well that ho determined to
Neil this Illinois tract anil reinvest
hero. The Roy tract suited hlra,
hikI, having a prospective buyer for
the old Ir. ct, ho cIosihI the deal for
this pieee, paying nil the money he
had brought with him. Iloy want
eil the remainder of Ida money. To
get II. is Seiiner had to get temporary
accommodations. The bank eug
jested itself and the needy man con
ceived tli" idea tliut ho could get the
money, apply to present needs, null
his Eislern property aud replace la
the bank without any one belief the
wi.Mer. Tiiu first part yt the scheme
worked. It la of the name piece of
cloth as that cut into Jy someoi
fii'ials having the caro of trust funds.
They urf't Iheui expecting to replace,
never looking at the word that
spells "embezzlement." Helmor
never thought of forgery. He only
hud in mind ids fertile Oregon acres,
Ins beautiful young wife and the op
portunity for work at Ida favorite
oeciipniioii. Keimer has been a farm
r all his life und is not versed in the
intricHciis of hanking. He la In
truth not Hcipiaiuted with thf larger
things in business mailers. A few
days after U.rrowing the money, de
positing a note signed by himself
ami hearing what purpoted to be the
signatures of Jacob Mauss, his father-in-law,
and Bernard Osterman, his
uncle, he started F.at-t to complete
the miIi' of his laud there and get
money to inert, within (10 days, his
Oregon obligations. Two days he
fure he reaebed Mappen, lite wifo of
the man who was to buy hi place
die, I and in) did not want any laud.
The cup had slipped aud Johu put
Ids hind again on the market. He
stopped theie but three days. He
ImsiiMiid his return, arriving here
last Saturday. He hurried to bin
home mid found his hearthstone
cold. His wife had gone to her
father, lie, when John called, re
lu--d in admit him or allow him to
see or converse with her. Instead
he was brandid as a forger. The
man was atuiii.ed. On Sunday Slier
ilt Sewi-ll found him sitting by the
roadside pluiigid in deep despair,
1'assively he came to tnwuandwas
Inil:;. d ill jail. There, wringing bin
hands aiid with gri at tear drops in
his eyes-, he speaks lle desire of his
heart. "1 want to get out of here
aud go to work on the larm. I want
to be at work." His wife came down
la-t Monday to see him, and declares
that li.- will not desert her husband.
Hiemer says ii will be only a few
weks till he can realize on his Illi
nois property, when hn will pay the
forced note. Hut tbat will be no de
fence against the. charge of forgery.
Indeed he has no ilrieuso of auy
kind, and there seems nothing to do
but submit the case to the jury.

O. B. Gates has gone to Ashland to
commence work on the Midway Tel
ephone Company's line. The line
starts from Ashland eastward across
the Cascade mountains to Klamath
Falls. For about 30 miles of this dis
tance the line runs through timber.
Instead of felling the trees on the
line they will lie used for poles. To
do this, a pin about ten or twelve
inches long will be used. About
1000 of these will be needed. The
contract for making these out of fir
lumber two inches scpiare and of the
proper length has been let to L. W.
House, of Hillslairo. He is now put
ting them through the process oi
manufacture. Another contract from
this company comes to a mechanic
here. Wiu. Benson will make 4500
iron insulator supports. Tbise sup
ports are out of iron an inch wide, an
eighth thick and six inches long,
with three holes in each. After the
mountains are passed poles will have
to be set.
The people of Newlierg were great
ly elated two years ago when it was
proposed to build a l.eot sugar fact
ory, but the enterprizo did not ma
terialize. But the Newherg Graphic
picks sour grapes Into this bas-ket:
"The development of the small
fruit Industry in this lm-ality will
mean more to our land owners than
would the establishment of tho Isn't
sugar business. l his siaicmeni
wouldn't have been popular when
the canvass for beet acerage was lad
ing made, but it Is a fact neverthe
less. The small truit business at
tracts a more desirable class of citi
zens than would the sugar beet en
terprise. Small fruits such as straw
berries, can be raised with less labor
and therefore less cost than sugar
beets. More money can be realized
on an acre of starwberrics or rasp-
berries than from an acre of beets.
The market, is sure and stable, there
being no foreign competition. The
beet sugar Industry is much at the
mercy of our fluctuating government
al policies, but high tariff, free trade
Cuban concessions cuts no figure In
the culture of the lucious red straw
berry. Still the beet sugar industry
is a goial thing w hich we would
have liked to have had come this
way. But if there is something 10-1
tir for us which we can l ave with
one tenth the effort and expense,
let's have It. There Is always the
danger of underestimating those
blessings which come naturally and
TheGrai.hic is right and we of
Washington county ought lo I
planting out Ptrawla-rry teds. If we
overstock the market for fresh ls-r-
ries. we can can them and ship to
greater distance.

Tbe intercollegiate oratorical eon-
test was held last Friday eveuiug at
Salem. The colleges sending con
testants were University of Oregon,
Eugene; Oregon Agricultural Col
lege, Corvalli?; Albany College, Wil
lamette University, Bulera; McMiuu-
villa College, Pacific College, New
berg; Oregon State Normal School,
Moumouth; and Pacific University,
Forest Grove. The winners are W.
G. Hale, Pacific University, Forest
Grove, first, subject of oration, "John
Brown of Ossawatomle;" second,
Sternberg, of Albany, and third,
Tartar, of Corvallls. The standing
of Hale and Sternberg was a tie in
oratory, but in composition Hale
had 542 credits to 635 J for Stern
berg. On Saturday it was noted that
according to the figures reported by
the judges an error in addition had
been made in Hale's favor, which,
corrected, would put Sternberg ahead
and take the medal from Hale, but
when the original figures were ex
amined it appeared that the mistake
was in copying the figures. The
totals had been correctly copied, but
some of the figures in the column
that made the totals were wrong.
When these had been corrected the
totals were not disturbed, and Hale
is the victor. The flurry for a while
was ice water to tbe rejoicing of the
student body at Forest Grove. Hale
had beea husabed by his Hillsboro
associates as he passed on the train
Saturday evening, and at Forest
Grove his fellows would not allow
his feet to touch so common a thing
as clay, wherefore on shoulders he
went to his carriage. A receptlou
and banquet came later. It was
about over and the last blissful
moments were passing when the tel
egraph messenger deliveren the (lis-
patch saying a mistake In figures had
wo o
Ix-en made and that Stcrnla?rg won.
Hale was chargiued, but be said he
had done his best and if he had not
won he could not make the effort
stronger, and he would have to be
satisfied. But news of the final In
spection camo Monday and the seren
ity of Hale's fellow students was re
stored. They had tieen more cast
down than Hale himself. Hale is a
1 IillHlM.ro boy and at one time was
an employee in the Inukikmdknt
office. So we all shine by rellected
Wells, Fargo A Compftny was or
ganized April IS, 1852 and fur 50
years it has been an active factor In
the development of the west. In its
earlier history It carried letters as
well as packages aud was patronized
by the Argonauts when they had a
letter that was to be lushed. The
express was certain and expeditious
but latterly, the mails beat the ex
press, not only hours but in some in
stances days. This Is due to the fact
that the government requires the
mails to go first. But the company
yet does a business that is an accomo
dation to the public. The Company
this year celebrates the half century
of its organization bypresenting each
of its employees with a silver medal
who has worked with it for a
year or more. Mr. J. M.
Brown, the Hillsboro agent, received
his medal on tho 17, day before the
Anniversary. It is a beautiful thing
in silver, about the size of a dollar
