. . Farming System Better.
Klamth Falls "Since I was here
two years ago a marked improvement
has been made by the farmers oi Kla
math county in general farming condi

Fitts, extension lecturer from Oregon
Agricultural college. Professor ltts,
with Professor J. E. Larson and Miss
Anna M. Turley, gave four farmers'
short courses in Klamath county, one
each at Plevna, Mount Laki, Merrill
"There is one general criticism I
would make of the methods of dairy
ing in Klamath county, however,"
Professor Fitts continued. "That is
as to the type of stock used. Many of
the farmers are trying to do a dairy
business and still make beef out of the
steers from the dBiry cows. This can
not be done profitably."

restrain the city authorities from in
terfering with the operation of its
theater on Sunday.
The plaintiff attacked the city ordi
nance, contending it was in connict
with Lord'B Oregon Laws, which ex
cepted theaters from Sunday closing.
Judge Coke takes the view that inas
much as the theaters Were excepted
under the state law there is no state
law applying to Sunday theaters.

Everett, Wash. At least six men
were killed and 44 wounded Sunday in
pitched battle at the Everett city
wharf between 260 members of the

came here from Seattle on the steamer
Verona, and a posse of 150 citizens,
headed by Sheriff Don McRae.

After the shooting, in which about
1000 shots were exchanged, the Verona
turned around and started back to Se

the deck of the steamer, and others,
panic-stricken, jumped overboard.
Some were taken from the water, but
others disappeared and it is believed
they were drowned. The Verona

A call to Industrial Workers of the
World members from all over the state
had been issued earlier in the week
and the citizens of Everett, at a meet
ing held Saturday night, planned to
meet the invaders and deny them
privilege of landing. The sheriff
stepped forward and informed the men
on the boat that they would not be
permitted to land.
One of them, evidently spokesman
for the party, began arguing with the
sheriff and then made a speech. Ap
parently as a signal, the man dropped
his hand and armed men on the
steamer opened fire on the posse as
sembled on the wharf.
The first man to fall was Sheriff
McRae, seriously wounded. ' One man
was killed instantly and in a moment
the crowd on shore was pamc-Btrtcken.
Deptuy sheriffs quickly rallied their
forces, however, and returned the fire
of the invaders on the Verona.
' Men on the wharf and on the boat
were seen to fall and the Verona im
mediately backed out of the dock and
started back toward Seattle.
The trouble between the I. W. W's.
and the authorities at Everett has
been of several months' standing and
was the outgrowth of a strike of shin
gle weavers here. After several minor
outbreaks of violence during the
strike, Sheriff McRae organized the
Citizens' committee and expelled all
members of the Industrial Workers of
the World from Everett.
A week ago 46 members of the In
dustrial Workers of the World came
from Seattle by steamer, but were met
at the wharf by the citizens' posse,
loaded into automobiles and escorted
to a point south of town, where they
were liberated and ordered to go back
to Seattle. .
Last week the Industrial Worker,
the official - organ of the Industrial
Workers of the World in Seattle, an
nounced that the forcible expulsion of
men from Evreett must be avenged,

It Is sometimes possible for a law
yer to prove that hiB opponent Is the
wiser man, as Is evidenced in this case.
A police magistrate in Cleveland
was disposing of cases at the rate of
about two a minute, with great exact- ,
ness and dignity, being Judge, Jury,
and attorney all in one.
"Then you are sure you recognize .
this linen coat as the one stolen from
you?" he said to a complainant.
"Yes, your honor." -
"How do you know it is yours?"
"You can see that It Is ot a pecu

witness. "That is the way I know it."
"Are you aware, sir," shouted the
Justice, turning to a closet back of
'him 'and producing a similar coat,
"that there are others like it?"
"Indeed I am," replied the witness
still more placidly. "I had two stolen."
Case and Comment.
Strong Turkey Market Predicted.
Portland . A strong market for
Thanksgiving turkey is predicted by T,
G. Fan-ell, who says:'
We believe that there is an averr
age crop of turkeys tnis iaii, not a
verv big one, but a good average crop.
Conditions are pretty good, men are
pretty well employed, and prices on all
commodities are hieh. We, therefore,
predict that there will be a very fine
price for fancy dressed turkeys, geese
and ducks for the Thanksgiving trade.
There have been a few marketed al
ready for early shipment to remote
points, Alaska, Manila, etc. tney
weres-ood and sold well 2727ic
We believe that fine goods on the
Thanksgiving market will bring this
much and Derhaps more.
There will be a good demand aiso
for fine dresesd geese and aucxs.
Chickens on the Thanksgiving market
are generally poor, sellers; they will
be wanted later.
