Tho Times-Herald would ngnin
urge upon tho people of this
county to attend the sessions of
of tho Oregon Idnho Dovolop
ment Congress to bo held n this
city July 1-2. Tho object of tins
bunch of "boosters' is to de
velop this portion of Oregon and
to attract attention to its great
resources. Tho congress has
been invited hero for tho purposo
of getting acquainted and local
pcoplo should turn out and en
courage the work.
County treasurers in Baker,
Clackamas, Clatsop, Columbia,
Douglass, Harney, Gilliam, Lake,
Lincoln, Morrow, Polk.Tillamook,
Umatilla, Washington and Wall
owa counties will not draw any
salary after May 22, of this year
unless the legislature meets and
remedies another one of its blun
ders. Such will be the case if
the law is strictly interpreted,
for one of the bills passed by the
last legislature specifically re
peals the law providing for tho
payment of salaries to these ofli-cers.
In commenting on the result of
the Hanley trial the Oregonian
It is proper to explain that the
verdict of "guilty" against Han
ley involves no question of real
moral guilt. The indictment did
not claim that Mr. Hanley over
had anything to do with the con
struction of tho fences in ques
tion. But the law permits a man
to be tried if tho fence is main
tained on his property, whether
originally constructed by him or
not, and all that this verdict dc
clares is that a fence was in nc
tual existence on property of
which Mr. Hanley is manager.
Upon the charge that he had ever
obstructed entrance upon tho
Government land, or had in any
way prevented access to it, he
was found not guilty. Mr. Han
ley's life record is opposed to the
fencing of Government land.
He stated under oath at the trial
that he had never fenced a foot
of Government Jand in his life.
Hanley's conviction makes his
ofTcnso a misdemeanor, Tho
maximum penalty Is $1000 fine
andono year In jail. Tho son
tenco may bo mado less at tho
discretion of tho court In se

found his task very difllcult, as
tho majority of tho pcoplo in
Harney county wcro disposed to
look with friendly eyes on tho
operations of Hanley.
"Tho virdict wns and is a sur
prise to me," said Mr. Hanloy
this morning. "I did notboliove
that ovidenco sufficient to con
vict me had been submitted by
tho government, and I felt very
confident in my own mind that I
had done no wrong. I care little
for the fine which might result

WM. IIANLCV CONVICTED.
The following is taken from
the Portland Journal of Juno 1:
William Hanley was found
guilty of maintaining and con
trolling an illeagal inclosure of
government land by a jury in
federal court this morning. The
virdict was returned at 9 a. m.
Thirty days were allowed to file
a motion for a new trial and sub
mit a bill of exceptions to the
Codtending and arguing throu
gh the long hours of tho night
there was such a difference of
opinion among tho 11 men com
posing tho jury that it was the
fixed belief that they would never
agree when at 10 o'clock they
were locked up for tho night
After receiving instructions from
Judge Wolverton the jury retired
at 4 o'clock yostaiday afternoon.
They did not agree on a verdict
until 9 o'clock this morning.
Jude Wolvorton's instructions
yesterday clarified every issue of
the case. Ho advised tho jurors
that they should not consider any
evidence introduced to show that
the fence around tho lands in
Harney county has been ropafrcd
unless that ovidenco included the
statement that the order for re
pairs or additions had come from
Hanley himself. In this connec
tion the United States district
attorney had argued that Han
ley's managerial position mado
him responsible for tho mainten
ance of tho fence, whether by
A delayed telegram from Port
land to this office announces that
the decision of final location of
tho Dry Farm Experiment Station
has again been postponed until a
meeting of tho regents in Juljr,
following tho Development Con
gress nero. Newspaper reports
state that board has under nd
vibement the location of two sta
tions and a division of the pres
It seems the report of the ex
perts really gave Harney County
some standing with tho bonid
and that this section is receiving
consideration as a possible loca
tion of the demonstration farm.
The Portland Journal has the
following concerning tho meet
ing: "Because plans developed
whereby there is a possibility of
two dry land experiment stations
in eastern Oregon, tho selection
of a site for tho station author
ized by the last legislature was
not made by the board of regents
of the Agricultural college in
session for tho past two days.
Two sites are considered in tho
recommendations of tho United
States government and college
experts as follews: Tho Harney
valley country and the great
wheat belt of Sherman, Gilliam
and tho adjournig counties. The
great need of experimental work
in both as expressed in the report
resulted in peans by which the
board hopes, by securing funds
from private sources, to secure
a station for both sections. The
matter is to bo determined at the
annual meeting of tho regents
"Tho report of experts shows
that in the Harney district there
are 1,100,000 acres of fertile
semi-arid land capable of produc
ing an enormous out put of pro
ducts that is as yet untouched
by the plow, and that transpor
tation and proper agricultural
methods would make it a district
of great wealth and importanco
to the state."
Judge Miller and Hon. Frank
Davey went before tho board and
presented Harney county's claims
Just what will bo done at tho
July meeting is hard to foretell
Should they decide to establish
two stations Harney county will
get one beyond a doubt, but
whether it would be advisable to
divide such a small appropriation
for mantenanco and expect tho
localities where the stations arc
located to put up what other
funds are necessary until the
legislature meotsagain, is ono
that must rcceive'considcration.
Wo all realize tho importanco and.
great benefit such a station
would be to this part of tho stato
and it may ba.bcst to accept a
half-loaf rather than none in this
there are too many events on the
afternoons of July 1 and 2 nd

of tho congress, thoro will bo
less and those races run on some
later date. However, Tho Times
Herald has no authority from tho
committeo to mnko such n sug
gestion, Tho celebration prober will bo
held on July 3 and v .1 consist of
tho usual parade .ith music and
sneaking in tho forenoon to bo
followed by an old fashioned bar
becuo and basket dinner at the
fair grounds. It Is the intention
to have some excellent music for
both tho Development Congress
and the c lobrntion as the band
will bo augmented by some voico
chorus work that will be quite
pleasing. Tho band will give a
concert on tho evening of Juno

It lias amply demonstrated by its cood work its right to be

cortnin to suit tho most critical farmer and be a money

"I It's a Deere-If s Right"
and does its work perfect ease to the operator and team.
It is manufactured and sold as a tongueless plow a tonguo
