FLIES WITH OWN WINGS.
Frenchman Beats All Records With
Aeroplane in Italy.
Rome. June 1. Leo. dc la Grange,
the French aeroplanist, made a new
experiment with his aeroplane here
this morning, which was so successful
that it filled the spectators with ad
miration. He surpassed his own rec
ord by flying for 15 minutes and 30
seconds, only then coming down be
caue he received a signal to do so,
and also because the motor of his ma
chine cannot' hold sufficient gasoline
to operate it much longer than that.
During that space of time M. de la
Grange made nine and three-fourths
rounds of an established course in the
military field, namely six kilometers, a
little over nine and nine-tenths of a
mile, at a velocity of tio kilometers, or
37.2 miles an hour.
The aeroplane was first pushed for
ward by M. ile la Grange's associates,
and as soon as the motor was put into
action the machine rose without dif
ficulty, keeping from seven to ten feet
above the ground. It moved smooth
ly and turned easily, the rounds of
the course following each other with
out interruption, and not once did the
aeroplane touch the ground. It was a
marvelops exhibition, which would
have won De La Grange a prize of
$5000 had it occurred iti France. It at
least confirms his possession of the

Great Area in Montana is Stripped
Bare of Timber.
Butte, Mont., June 1. A federal sur
vey corps is engaged in running sur
vey lines in the mountains near Phil
ipsburg, Mont., to determine the
amount of cordwood cut for the mines
of Granite county, and the location of
the ground from which the timber
was taken. This wood was cut, it is
claimed, from land belonging to the
government, and it is intimated that
suits may be begun to recover for
about 700,000 cords of wood cut, ap
proximating in value about $1,000,000
The bu!k of this wood was cut about
10 or 12 years ago, during the boom
days of silver, and was used at the
Rimetallic and Granite Mountain
mines, owned by Charles D McClure
and his a ssociates, of M. Louis, to

NEWS ITEMS OF GENERAL INTEREST
FROM THE STATE OF OREGON
INVESTIGATE EXPRESS RATES.
State Railroad Commission Has Fancy
Figures to Start With.
Salem, Or., May 20. An investigation
has been started by the railroad com
mission regarding express rates en
forced by the Wells, Fargo and the
Pacific express companies in Oregon.
Some startling revelations have been
brought to light that will likely de
mand the attention of the commission
in the near future.
Comparisons have been made show
ing the relative charges on lines-in Or
egon and the charges in other states for
similar distances and for the same class
of goods. From Portland to Siskiyou,
a distance of 3ss miles, the Wells
Fargo express company charges a mer
chandise rate, of $2.75 for 100 pounds,
while for the same distance in Missouri
a rate has been established by the Mis
souri railroad commission, which is
now in force, of $2 for loo pounds. The
merchandise rate in Texas for a sim
ilar distance is $2.05f
The rates charged by the Pacific ex
press company arc even more exorbi
tant according to the figures given out
by the railroad commission. ' The Pa
cific express company operates out of
Portland cast over the O. R. & N. For
MO miles over the O. R. & N., from
Portland to Huntington, the general
merchandise rate for 100 pounds is $4.
For 35S miles, or the same distance for
which the Wells-Fargo charges $2.75
in Western Oregon, the Pacific express
company in Eastern Oregon charges
Compared with similar distances in
Missouri and Texas, the rates of the
Pacific express company are extreme.
For 4 40 miles in Missouri the general
merchandise express rale is $2.10 and
in Texas it is $2.30. In both these
states the rates have been fixed by
railroad commissions and have been ac
cepted by the express companies and
are now in force. The rates given are
for the same classes of goods in every

the O. R. & N. company, he has received
the long-expected instructions frrm
New York to proceed with construction
of the Elgin Joseph branch. About

plete the line, has been provided. From
mo to 400 men will be put on at once.

Fruit Crop Will be Heavy.
Baker City. Unless exceptionally
cold weather should overtake this part
of the country there will be a large
fruit crop, according to men who are
heavily interested in fruit lands and or
chards. In the immediate vicinity of
Baker City fruit is necessarily slower
on account of the altitude, but over
in Pine and Eagle valleys it is far
advanced. Recent eld spells have not
d. imaged the crop materially.
Scouring Mills to Reopen.
Pendleton. It was announced a few
days ago that the wheels of the Pen
dleton scouring mills would be started
turning about June 1. The uncertain
condition of the wool market is re
spf ii ible for the late start, but it
will not shorten the season's run. Sev

now on hand and more is arriving

CHEAP FUEL IN SIGHT.
If Choppers Can't Sell to Trust They
Will to Consumers.
Pendleton. After futile efforts to
sell their 'wood to Pendleton and
Walla Walla woodyards, ten wood
choppers of Kamela have pooled their
output and have placed an agent in
this city and will sell direct to the
consumer. They have 5.0(H) cords in
the pool and will fill this territory
with cheap wood, they declare. The
woodyards have large supplies on
hand, owing to the fact that the mild
weather of the past winter restricted
the sale, and have refused to buy the
Camela pool, which is now being mar
keted here. Already several cars
have been ordered from the pool and
it promises to demoralize the wood
market iit the inland empire.

Pendleton. Thousands of salmon
fry from six to eight inches in length
are now running out into the canal
of the Irrigon irrigation project and
many of them are being stranded on

Eugene. The Wells-Fargo Express
Company has begun the erection of a
fine brick building on the Southern
Pacific depot grounds tr which to
ha.idle its business in this city. The
architecture of the new building will
be in keeping with that of the new
passenger depot, now in course ot
construction and to be completed be
fore July 1. The Wells-Fargo build
ing will be of brick and stone an '
will cost $4,000 to $5,000. It is prob

the new building is finished as the
location is convenient to the business

ducks nesting among the tules. The
birds are small and supposed to be
cinnamon teal, a species of duck rarely

have returned in great numbers this
spring. I he rapid growth of the city
ind the settlement of the bills be
tween Lake Ewauna and the Upper
Klamath lake seemed for several years
past to have driven the pelicans to
other fields. However, they are here
in great numbers this year.

OKLAHOMA FLOODS RECEDNQ.
Property Loss Estimated $10,000,000
Eight Lives Lost.
Guthrie, Okla., Mav 27. The sun is
shining in Oklahoma today, and the
flood waters are fast receding. No ad
di'ional loss of life is reported, and the
homeless are beginning Kiadually to
return to their homes. The death roll
remains at eight.
With miles of tracks washed out and
bridges damaged or destroyed, the rail
roads are still demoralized: train scrv
ice on many lines must remain annulled
for several days yet, while on others
mly a partial service is possible. The
damage to crops and railroads can, of
course, be only roughly estimated, but
i conservative figure places the aggre
gate at close to $10,000,000. It marks
the costliest disaster ever sustained eith
er in Oklahoma or the Indian Terri
tory or by the new State of Oklahoma.
At Muskogee the Arkansas river con
tinned to rise up to last night, but this
morning began gradually to lower. At

500 houses were submerged, the water
dnined off fast today, and conditions
began to assume a normal aspect.
