Hudson told tho' members of tho

cific her right hand In southern
Washington, her left hand In the Wil

least to look over her shoulder.
And that was good advice good
not only from the standpoint of Cen
tral Oregon, but also from Portland's.
Central Oregon mny bo developing
slowly, but she Is advancing surely,
nnd as she forges ahead Into her own
It will mean that a territory enor

WATER USERS WILL MUCT.
Tho water users under tho Central
Oregon Irrigation Company's segre
gation plan a largo meeting nt Red
mond this Saturday, at 1:30. A call
for tho meeting has been Issued by
Secretary Colo E. Smith, by order of
President P. J. Young.
"Statlra c. Ilrlggs, writing letters
for Judge $24.80"
That modest little Hera Is tucked
nwajr among tho bills allowed by tho
County Cjiirt at Its last meeting.
It was a good bill for the two com
mlsslguers to pass, for without doubt
no expenditure that the court ever
has authorized has led to more soul
satisfying entertainment for the
people of Crook county at large than
has this. Judgo Springer's communi
cations to the press and the people
of the county have come to occupy
a unique place In our local public
life the spice of that lite, indeed.
As regular as death and taxes, as
versatile as sin, as voluminous as
eternity and as logical as reason,
these periodic epistles are worth
more to the tax payers than all the
county autos ever manufactured and
all tho cement ever distributed by a
generous railroad corporation. It is
the unanimous desire of reading vot
ers that the good work continue.
Only, Mr. Commissioners, why not
add a few dollars to the cost and
provide au editor for the letters as
well as a stenographer? It would
lie an admirable Investment.
Theiuovoment to Invoke tho refer
endum against the county attorney
bill . should receive no support in
Crook tylunty, For most sections
the new law promises to be an ad
mirable one, and for Crook county it
Is eapeciuliy advantageous. With
suchxR hugo territory, and with The
Dalles so fur removed, there is every
logical,, reafcon why a district or
county uttorney should have his
headquarters at Prlneville, and none
why the cumbersome old order
should be retained.

quoted In his Intention to poison the

WEEKLY MARKET REPORT.
NORTH PORTLAND. May 30.
Receipts for tho week havo been:
Cattlo 853, calves 69, hogs 2014,
sheep 4570, horses 2C.
Cattle values suffered a severe cut
during the week and the mnrket Is
generally 25 to CO cents lower.
Steers received tho brunt of tho at
tack. Ilcst bullocks wor.o soiling
steady $8.25 to $8.50 toward tho
close with good grass stuff around
8 cents. Ilutcher stuff was slow to
participate In tho slump as heifers
brought $8 nnd cows $7.80, although
these prices aro not In exlstenco to
day. Good bulls asd stags are
steady to a shado weaker, while
calves remain unchanged. Heavy
liquidation from drouth afflicted sec
tion on California nnd Rocky Moun
tain states, has hurried along tho an
nual advent of tho grass cattlo run
Heef Is not as plontlful as In former
years und tho trade expects a com
paratively steady market all spring
The hog market displayed strong
"come lwck" qualities from opening
to closing nnd gained approximately
25 cents. Ilcst light swlno sold
steady Wednesday $S.K0 to $8.55.

enough to absorb receipts which Imvo

certainty ns to tho market status tho
coming week prevents much specu
lation. Sheep hnusu proved an Ir
regular affair up to Thursday and
thereafter appeared to be steadier.
