Sinking Fill Near Cayose Casts
Train Into Ditch.
CARS BREAK LIKE EGG SHELLS
Four Persons Klllod, Four Serious!
Injured and More Thn Score
Pendleton, April 11. Four persona
wens instantly killed, four soriously in
jurcd and more Uian a score of others
cut, bruised and badly elinkon up in tho
wont wreck in tho history of the 0. 11.
& N., which occurred yesterday mom
ma about 3:30 o'clock near Cnruse sta
tion, about 15 miles cost of this city,
just at tho foot of tho Blue mountains.
Tho monster cnglno turned a complete
somersault in the air, and, now, com-
plctely wrecked, Is standing on end In
tho Umatilla river. Tho mall car, two
baccara cars and a amoktr are piled In
a heap, the former being smashed into
No Mtsenser coaches with tho ex
ception of tho smoker lett tho track,
though passengers were hurled from
their scats and berths, many of them
receiving severe cuts and bruises. Tho
smoker was left standing nearly on end
and the occupants were thrown in a
heap to tho front end of tho car, which
was crushed in like an egg shell. Why
many of thom were not instantly killed
and all seriously mangled cannot bo
explained by the trainmen.
Tho train was passenger No. 6, in
charge of Conductor Coykendall, four
hours late and moving at a slow speed,
which acounts for the small number of
passengers injured. Tho wreck was
caused by a fill across the gulch giving
way under the weight of the engine
COMING IN DROVES.
Thousands of Hometeekors Flocking;
Portland, April 11. After makings
careful estimate of the colonist business
coming West, A. D. Charlton, assistant
general patscngur agent for tho North
ern Pacific, who has just returned from
the East, estimates that between 6,000
and 7,000 homescekers are leaving the
Eastern gateways daily and that this
tremendous movement will continue
during the season.
Mr. Charlton paid particular atten
tion to the colonist movement while
away. Ho personally visited tno de
pots, where crowds of west bound
'homescekers are flocking to tho trains
and crowding tho coaches. Many, not
finding seats, are even willing to stand,
. so eager are they to get to the now
The Northern Pacific, according to
Mr. Charlton, Is hauling between 2,500
and 3,000 colonists out of Et. Paul,
Minneapolis and Dulnth every day.
The Great Northern and Soo" lines,
of course, takes n great many more.
Taking tho southern gateways Into con
sideration, Mr. Charlton believes that
the total number leaving for the West
with tho avowed Intention of making
their homes here will run closo to 7,000
every day of the GO-day seascn.
JUDGE BOISE DEAD.
REDUCE HARR1MAN POWERS.

Has Too Great Control.
Now York, April 12. Some of the
directors of tho Union Pucltlc railroad
favor a material reduction of tho extra'
ordinarr rawer confer tod upon its
president, Edward II. Harriman, which
inako tho company a ono-mau affair.
At present tho executivo committee
has all tho powers ol tho directors
when Uie lattct are nut in session, and
Mr. Harriman has nil tho powers of
tho executivo committee whon that
body is not In soislon. In oUier words,
Mr. Harriman can do as ho pleases, ex
cept for the few minutes ouco a week
or once a month, when tho committer
is in session.
Ho has a power of attorney and could
coll tho millions upon millions of tho
securities of other roods owned by tho
Union Paciilo at what price ho pleased,
or ho could hypothecate securities, bor
row tens of millions upon them from
banks and engage in stock market op
erations on a colossal scale.
In the hope of appeasing tho Union
Pacific stockholders and eliminating
tho public distrust In Uio securities of
the Harriman roads, it is proposed to
put soiuo new blood in the executivo

adopt resolutions taking away from

Congressman Say Work on Canal Is
Washington, April 12. Clialrman
Thwney, of tho houso committee on np-
proprlatlons and Representative Olcott,
who have recently returned from a visit
to tho isthmus of Panama, today dis
cussed with tho president conditions as
they found them. Mr. Tawney is favor
ably Impressed with tho progress being
made In tho canal work, and told tho
president he thought that at tho pres
ent rate tho waterway should bo com
pleted in fivo years.
He said be regarded it as unfortunate
that the engineering world Iiad been
representing to tho people that an al
most impossible engineering problem
confronted it. Tho principal conditions
now to bo met, bo said, were those of
sufficient railroad capacity to take care
of the dirt excavated, and sanitation
with the view to keening the place in
a good, healthful condition.
Mr. Tawnoy also discussed with tho
president questions affecting congres
sional annronriations for canal work.
and it is likely some legislation bear
ing on the subject, will bo recommend
ed to congress as the result of tho visit
to the isthmus.
MOSTLY SPRING GRAIN.
Dry Fall In Watco Preventes Soedlng
of Usual Acresga.
Tho Dalles Formers from tho Inter
ior of Wasco county say it Is still too
early to predict with any degree of cer
tnlnty, what will bo the prospect for
this year's crops. Tho season is nhout
three weeks Into, and the rain, which
has fallen to tho depth of 1.5 Inches
slnco April 1, has greatly Interfered
with plowing umt seeding. From farm
era In different parts of tho county, it
la learned that there is more moisture
in tho ground now than for a number
of years post. On account of the lack
of moisture lost year, a small propor
tion of tiio acreage was sown to (all
grain, probably not more Hum. 25 per
cent. Tho grain that was sown, how
ever, cdtuo through tho winter In
splendid nhapo, tho heavy snowfall
making a good protection. As socn as
tho ground settle enough to begin,
work will bo pushed forward with great
rapidity In order to niuko up for tho
lateness of the season.

Pendleton As a result of the rainy
weather that has prevailed all over this
section during the greater part of Uio
spring it has been difficult for farmers
to get spring work dono as early as us
ual. Under ordinary conditions prac
tically all of tho spring seeding Is dono
by the tnlddlo ol April, but much land
meant for spring grain this year Is yet
unsown. To make the situation worso,
there Is moro than Uio usual amount of
spring grain to bo sown this year, bo-
cause of tho dry weather during tho
early fall, and some of those who seed
cd in tho late fall mot disaster becuueo
cold weather kept tho wheat from germ
inating. Consequently tho latter luivo
to resecd now. However, tho only ro
seeding of consequence is In the north
western part of the county, where moro
late sowing was dono than on the reservation.
