Meats and four will not go on the
free list in the democratic tariff law
if the recommendation of the senate
finance committee in charge cf the
agricultural 'schedule is aooepted.
Ibis impoitant alteration of the Un
derwood till as it passed the house
was determined upon by the sub
committee composed of Senators Wil
liams, Shively and Gore. It was de
oided in earning out the determina
tion to perfeot the Underwood bill
by equalizing raw material and its
prod not s, that it would be wiser to
levy nominal duties on meats and
flour products than to, put livestook
and grain on the free net. - '
la accordance with this deoision
the sub-committee took from the free
list in the house bill fresh meats
beef, mutton and pork and made
them dutiable at ten per cent ad val
- Wheat flour was restored to the du
tiable list at the speoiflo rate of forty
five cents a barrel with other wheat
produots at 10 per cent ad valorem,
and the Underwood doty on oats was
reduoed from 10 cents?por bushel to
six oents per bushel with a opmpensa
toty duty on oatmeal said to be ap
proximately: five per cent ad valorem.
This rate on oatmeal was hot definite
ly determined, but it is -assured that
the recommendation will take oatmeal
from the free list. Cattle," sheep and
hogs will be lett as they are in the
proposed bill, dutiable at 10 per cent
nd valorem and the Underwood doty
of 10 cents a bushel on wheat will

count of the drowning of Emesley
Ridecour, 20 year-old son of Mr. and
Mrs. Wm. Ridenour of that plaoe,
and a nephew of Mrs. F. B. Boyd of
this city. The tragedy ooourred Tues
day night, May 27th and the body
was found a week after the diown
ing, by cruising the river in a glass
bottomed boat. The body was lying
in 12 feet of water, and the jawbone
bad been broken, showing that he bad
been struok when the boat went over.
Ihe young man, in company with
a friend, volunteered to go to
the relief of a stranded motor boat in
the Chelan river. They endeavored
to reaob the vessel 1j a rowboat,
which capsized in tbe turbulent waters.
Young Tuttle saved himself but bis

Julia Walker Must Answer
to a Horse Stealing Charge
Julia Walker, more commonly known
as JKed wings," a small crown-eyed
girl of 19, is in the county jail after a
desperate pursuit by officers through
a wild stretob of coca try between
Heppoer and the town of Dale on tbe
north fork of the John Day river.
Ihe "girl buokaroo" is a daughter
of tbe late William Walker, pioneer
resident of Umatilla county and is
one of the heirs of her father's estate.
The crime with which she is obarged
is horse-stealing, having purloined
two horses and made a getaway with
a male companion, Bill Jordan, her
brother-in-law, who is also held on a
similar uharge. Jordan was captured
several days ago but the girl had a
better borsa and was successful in
esoapiog Horn her pursuers, one
sought refuge at the old home ranch
near Dale, where she wes apprehended
by a deputy sheriff.
To a reporter "Bed Wings" related
her first experience with handling
horses. When but 10 years of age she
started breakiug bad horses and bas
ridden the range with cowboys at in
tervals ever eiuoe.
"Bed Wing's" mother is a quarter
blood Umatilla Indian, but never as
sooiated with her people, not even
claiming an allotment on the reserva
tion. There are seven girls and ooe
boy ia the Walker family, "Bed
Wings" being the fifth child. A
shook of short dark hiir, skiu of tan
and eager black eyes bear wituess to
her Indian tlood. She for three years

STORY OF A FAMOUS SONG.
D smal. Rainy Day Moved Dan Em.
ivsot to Writs "Dixit."
,; i- V iv! written by !an Emmet,
'hi. it ',v. .tN anil Miusif. ti was sung
fin ilu tiist tiuie Moudity. Sept. 10,
lSTi!). on the stage of Mrynut's minstrels
lit 47-' Itruadwny, New York. There
bas been much controversy over tbe
question of authorship and over tbe
music. The known history of tbe song
has lieen carefully compiled by Gus
tar IvobU- lu bis "Famous American
Songs." as follows:
"On Saturday night, Sept.' 17, 1859,
after the performance one of the Bry
ants told Emmet that a new walk
around was wanted In Jlme for re
hearsal on Monday. The minstrel re
plied that, while the time was very
short, he would do his best. That
night after be reached borne he tried
to hit upon some tune, but the music
wouldn't come. Ills wifo cheerily told
him to wait until morning. lie should
have the room to himself so that he
could work nudlsturbed, oud when he
had finished the walk around he could
play It for her as a sole audience. If
she liked It the Bryants would nnd so
would the average listener.
"Next day was rainy and dismal.
Some years before Emmet had traveled
with a circus as n drummer. In winter
the warm southern circuit was n popu
lar route with circus people, nnd those
who were obliged to show north would
say when the cold weather would make
them shiver, 'I wish 1 was In Dixie.'
The phrase was, In fact, a. current cir
cus expression. On that dismal Sep
tember day, probably the beginning of
the equinoctial, when Emmet stepped
to the window and looked out tho old
longing for the pleasant south camo
over him, and involuntarily her thought
to himself, '1 wish 1 was in Dixie
"Like a flash the thought suggested
the first line for a walk around, nnd a
little later the minstrel, fiddle In hand,
was working out the melody which,
coupled with tho words, made 'Dlxlo' a
genuine song of tho people almost from
the instant It wus first sung."
