to the effect that the east and
west line through Central Ore
gon depended largely upon the
values placed upon land. We do
not belieye the Oregonian intends
to retard the development of the
interior, yet repeated reference
to this remark tends to put this
section in a wrong light with
those not familiar with condi
tions. Both Judge Lovett and
the Oregonian ought to know
that there are many thousands of
acres of vacant government land
in Central Oregon awaiting the
coming of the homeseeker and
the value placed upon private
holdings need not deter the man
looking for a home. The Times
Herald realizes that the disposi
tion of large holdings of well
developed irrigated lands would
give great impetus to this coun
try, provided the price was right,
yet these holdings are not so
large when compared to the im

LAW SEEMS LAME
Two peddlers were arrested
and brought before Justice Ran
dall last Monday charged with
having beaver hides in their pos
session. The defendants, filed a
demurer to the complaint based
on the grounds that it did not
show sufficient evidence under
the statute to constitute a crime
and the demurer was sustained.
The law says nothing about
beaver hides, but does provide a
penalty for destroying, killing,
or having in possession beaver.
As it stands the law is more or
less a farce as it would seem im
possible to convict one having
beaver hides and it is not likely
many would be found with beaver
in their possession, it Dnngs
out a point of law that is of in
terest not only locally but all
over the state.

"hard up" for copy for it has
joined some of the other knock

An editorial in its last issue in
sinuates that the Hanley compa

land worth while. Of course the
facts do not bear out such a
statement and it is foolish for
the Eagle to make it.

A special meeting of the city
council was called yesterday
evening at the request of Dr.
Geary, health officer, to take such
steps as was considered expedi

Dr. Geary was appointed city
health officer and a resolution
was adopted in which it was con
sidered best not to allow any pub
lic gatherings for a couple of
weeks. The marshal was in
structed to request owners of all
places where minors where in

Frank L., youngest son of Mr.
and Mrs. C. H. Voegtly. The
little fellow took sick with scarlet
fever some ten days ago and de
veloped pneumonia later which
was the immediate cause of death.
The little boy was four years and
three months of age. He was a
bright, beautiful child who was a
particular favorite among all who
knew him. It was a sad blow to
his parents who have the deep '
sympathy of the entire communi-1

would be clear out of the country
