The general theme ot conversa
ble quarterly, (notice am resolution I ia this week, on the street, in
the court house and ou the trains,
has been the Snyder tragedy. The
wife of the dead man was in town
last Sunday and identified ' the ef
fects found on the skeleton and the
the gold crowned teeth in the jaw.
She returned to Portland Sunday
evening, promising to return Mon
day noon, but she failed to do so.
On Wednesday she wired District
Attorney Alleu that she would go
to Hilisboro Thursday morning,
sure. What she knows, or now
much she will tell, remains to be
found out, and the "sweating" pro
cess already prepared for her bene
fit, may or may not disclose a great
deal. Following are reports of a
few of the many stories and tele
grams referring! directly to Snyder
and his murder, gathered from dif
ferent sources, that has been float

She was located at the Portland Hotel

Who Will Be Benefited.
Ramsey Tart Grange, located at
Dufur, Wasco County, Oregon, has
adopted a resolution calling upon
the Legislature to provide for the
employment of convicts at making
grain sacks, and asking that these
sacks be sold to the farmers at cost.
At present the convicts are leased to
the firm of Goldsmith & Loewen
berg who employ them iu their pen
itentiary stove tactory, paying the
State about 35 cents per day, which
is about one sixth ot what free lab
or can be had for. These c mvict-
made stoves compete with those
made by free labor and prevent the
establishment ol a stove factory in
Their employment in the manu
facture of grain sacks would be 01
benefit to a large number of persons,
but still it is not clear that the wheat
growers of Eastern Oregon and the
Willamette Valley are entitled to
have tkdr grain sacks furnished
them at cost by the State or that
this is the best way to employ the
convicts. Whv not put tnem to
work upon the roads, letting each
county, if it so desires, have as many
of them as may be deemed best, un
der such regulations as will secure
their human treatment and prevent
their escape. The men who would
be the most benefited by grain sacks
at cost are the very ones who least
need any assistance from the State
the owners of the vast wheat
ranches of Eastern Oregon. Oregon
