that Is, the Posts, Telegraphs & Tel
ephone Employe association threw
down the gage of battle to the govern

a syndicate or union under the law of

the same footing with workmen' un
ions with the right to strike.
This defiance, which is nothing short
of open revolt, came aa a sudden and
sensational sequel to Premier Clemen
ceau'a failure today to receive a depu
tation of po-ital employe, who called
to demand the redemption of promises
they say the government made when
the recent strike was declared off.
The government, which claims to be
prepared for any eventuality, it Is con

have no option but to declare a strike
the minute the government makes a
hostile turn. The entire country is
tremendously excited by tho violent
agitation to which it has been subject

There are even intimation that the
monarchist and other reactionaries are
furnishing funds to stir up a revolution
in the hope of imposing a new regime.

day. One of tho largest of these salon
is reported from tho vicinity of Arling

head of yearling have been thipted to
outside mnrkcts. The sale price re
ceived for tho mixed yearling weather
ranged from $3 to $4 nr head, its com

Sheep shearing In Umatilln county
will last for perhaps two week jet,
though some of tho earlier shearer
havo already finished their season'
clipping. Result from tho shearing
plant provo that tho earlier prophecy
of good clip for this year Is proving
as predicted. The fleeces aro found to
bo unbroken and the staple good, due
largely to the early grass and the bet
ter than common condition of tho sheep
becauso of the close winter.
The lambing season for Umatilla
county will last but a few days longer,
though It will not cloeo quite so soon
up in the foothills of the county. The
increaso this year In the county will bo
above 96 per cent, with the total near
er the lower figure. The increase in
Umatilla county will approach the
maximum this year because of the ex
ceptionally good weather conditions.
Tho winter left the heep fatter than
usual, due to the regularity of the snow
conditions and the plentlfulness of hay.
Then the grass came early In the
spring keeping the fat of tho sheep up
and adding more. The lambing season
proper has found the weather condi
tions especially good again. Tho
who chanced winter lambing report an
especially good Increase.
WOOL CLIP GOOD.
Mitchell Growers Say Quality Is Bet
ter Than Usual.
Mitchell Woolgrower In thl local
ity report that the season which Is just
closing has been the moat favorable for
lambing for many year. The weather
ha not only been ideal but tho range
gra waa more abundant than usual,
which fact enables the ewe to start
the sucking period with plenty of nour
ishment. All the sheepmen report that
the crop of 1909 lambs will go beyond
the 100 per cent mark. Shearing will
start here about May 10, although
those who have yearling and mutton
sheep contracted for early driving are
just commencing to shear them. The
wool this year Is of a better quality
than usual, and the price are likewise.
Farmers of thl section are beginning
to complain of drouth and cold north
wind. Fall sown grain Is not doing
so well a it should and the spring
sown crop will need moisture to in
sure a good stand. A larger acreage
ha been sown to grain thl year than
in former year and all concerned re
gret that the weather should remain so
While the weather baa such a back
ward effect on the crop, it Is pleasing
to know that tbe range Is abundantly
supplied with tbe finest crop of grass
that the stockmen could desire. All
elaase of stock are in fine condition,
and prospect point to a favorable
grating season. No cattle or horse
are moving on the market at prex-nt.
but G. L. Frizxell, of Gird creek, will
drive 300 head from thl county to
Toppentsh. Wash., via Arlington, about
