arid for traveling exhibit cars. A
high standard was set last year with

essary that your progressive grow

saving samples. Will you help us

FOREST FIRES AFFECT ,
STREAM FLOW IN IDAHO.
Residents of Wallace, Idaho, now
claim that results of the disastrous
forest fires in northern Idaho in 1910
aro boing made evident jn tho changed
flow from the watershed then burn
ed over, which furnishes tho water
supply of the city. This basin in
cluded an area of aproximately two
thousand acres and was formerly
well timebred with trees from 50 to
200 years old. These wero'almost to
tally destroyed by the fires of 1910.
From this watershed the city gets
its supply not only for domestic pur
poses, but also for the development
of electricity for power and light, so
that tho maintenance of a consider
able flow is essential to the city.
It is stated that before the fires
tho (low of the stream at its lowest
stages waa never below one thou
sand minor'sMnches, the unit of meas
urement which has been used. But
since the fiijs the records show that
the minimum flow lias fallen to about
250 minerfs inches, ami it is now nec
essary, foij, the company which fur
nishes water, Tight and power to ex
pend a considerable amount of money
each year in developing power from
steam and to use a considerable part
of this power in pumping water. Ro
cords of tho weather bureau at Wal
lace show that tho precipitation for
the years since tho firo has been
about normal for the region This
seems to demonstrate- that the un
evenness of the flow must be due to
the distruction of the foi est cover of
the watershed and not to any change
in climate or precipitation.
In view of tho situation, the gov
ernment forest servico has under
taken to reforest tho denuded water
shed. Somo planting has already
been done and evontuallj all of the
watershed which is included within
national forest boundaries is to be
reforested. Tho experts of tho de
partment point out that the plant
ing will probably have no immed
iate effect, yet it should influence
run-off as soon as forest conditions
aro rostored, and re-establish event
ually a more stable etream-llow.

ORF-fJON SUPREME COURT RE
VERSES RULING OF LOWER
COURT AND ORDERS A RE
TRIAL. The Oregon Supreme Court last
Tuesday reversed tho conviction of
J. S. Barton of Coquillo and ordered
a new trial.
A? Salem, dispatch tn the Coos Bay
Times states that "because Prosecu
tor Liljeqvist commented upon evi
dence which the court had ordered
excluded and because tho court re
fused to give instructions asked for
by the defense, the Supreme court
.reversed tho Circuit court of Coos
county in the case of Jesse S. Barton,
convicted of assault upon Miss Madge
Yoakum. During tho trial Prosecu
tor Liljeqvist sought to introduco evi
dence to show the reputation of Miss
Yoakum. Tho court excluded this
and the prosecutor then stated to tho
jury what ho intended to show by the
evidence. Prior to the indictment of
Barton, a petition of citizens of Co
quillo, deploring the moral condi
tions in Coquillo and calling atten
tion to Barton's case, was addressed
to the grand jury. The Supremo
courj. held this showed a strong sen
timent against liarton ana the court
shou)d have instructed the jury not to
bo guided by sentiment."
.''The Barto n case was submitted to
the Supreme court about a month
ago. C. F. McNight and Judge Sper
ry were attorneys for .Barton and Dis
trict Attorney LjljeqviGt had charge
of the prosecution, but in submitting
the case to tho Supremo court, Mr.
Liljeqvist had a Salem attorney ar
gue it for him.
Tho Barton case caused consider
able of a stir in Coquillo, because of
tho prominence of tho principals in
the case. Barton represented Coos
county in tho last legislature. He
was indicted on charges preferred by
Miss Yoakum, an employe in his of
fice, with attempting to assault her
in the vault of tho abstract office at

Rev. Wm. Ilorsfall received a tele

Tlie news came as a great shock to
tho many friends of the Bishop here,

which the latter said "the Bishop
came home from the last meeting of
the convention of tho Episcopal church
with a high fever and is being kept
in bed for a few days, lie is real
ly quite sick and the rest will not
hurt him." Mrs. Scadding also stat
ed that as soon as ho was better they
would come to their Bandon cottage
for a rest. This was all that was
known of his condition until tho tele
gram came Wednesday.
Bishop Scadding was 511 years old

the Diocecc of Oregon. He was 'con
secrated at Emmanuel Church, La
Grange, 111., early in 1900, ami wan
assigned to Oregon, coming to th'w
utato in October, 1900. He met-witR"'-marked
success in his work here and
had the pleasure of seeing the mem
bership of his church almost doub

here. Bishop Scadding had no chil
