SECOND All FAIR OPENS WITH FINE CASE DF Al. BUS TRIED n COURT HOUSE m TEACHERS INSTITUTE CLOSES AFTER VERY
WEATHER; LIST OF EXHIBITS LARGE
Rainy Weather Ends Just in Time Special Train From Uma-
tilla County Due To Arrive This Morning.
Yesterday was the first day of the I
Second Annual Morrow County Fair.
The curtain was drawn at 10 o'clock
when music by the band officially
opened the big three days program.
A heavy fog hung low on the horizon
early in the morning but old Sol got
busy and his lusty rays soon cleared
the atmosphere leaving the air pure
and clean after the three days' rain.
The rain left the roads in fine shape
and the sun is rapidly drying the mud.
All the attractions advertised by the
fair management were on the ground
in ample time and the program was
carried out in full as anticipated by
The special train of Umatilla Coun
ty business men from Pendleton and
way stations is due in Heppner this
morning. They will stay all day and
leave for home late tonight.
The exhibits are more complete this
year than last and the fair as a whole
completely outclasses last year's ef
fort. A detail account of the fair will be
published in our next issue.

The case of the State of Oregon
vs Al. Binns was tried last night.
The case appeared before the County
Court Officials. For those who do
not understand how this court works,
word is necessary. The procedure
is much different from the ordinary
court. When n man is hrought up be
fore this court, the idea is to find
what he is guilty of. Every man is
guilty of something, the thing to do
is to find what, he is guilty of. When
this is ascertained, the punishment is
decided and inflicted then and there.
There are no cases of delayed justice.
This case has attracted much com-

County Officials. Tl.ls jury asks the
prisoner questions and decides his fate
without leaving the box. Procedure
is very simple. To the usual ques
tions such as are asked Al answered
promptly. When he was asked if he
had ever appeared at the Court House
looking for Mr. Notson with a shot
gun in his possession, Al had to con
fess that he did. The crowd thought
that Al was scheduled for a six
month's stay at the"Summer Colony."
This was the last question asked and
the jury got their heads together and
their faces were drawn and firm.
Only one man was noted to appear
excited. He had a worried look on
his face all during the trial. He
seemed to be struggling with himself.
This was S. E. Notson. Just as they
were ready to pronounce the sentence,

LOSS OF LIFE
Last Tuesday afternoon when Gran
Weston who works for l',a!ph Ee.nge,
was returning from Lexington with
his six-mule team wheat wagon, he
met a pair of goats harnessed to a
wagon in the road near Jos. Eskel-
son's place. The mules got excited
and Grant got down and quieted them.
In some manner he got entangled in
the harness and the mules starting
up, threw him to the ground and the
hind wheels of the first wagon and
both wheels of the tralier passed over
his body in the region of his hips. He
was badly bruised and one rib was
broken. He was brought to town and
Dr. Conder patched him up and SBid
that no other complications were evi
dent. He was on the streets yester
day with crutches but is will be a week
at least before he can do much. That
he was not more seriously injured is
very lucky for Grant.
Owing to the fair and the weather
conditions, the lone Items are scarce
until next week. This section has had
its share of fall rains this week.
The dance given in the rink last
Tuesday night was a great success.
A fair sized crowd was present and
everyone enjoyed themselves. The
dancers were entertained between the
acts by the famous Fiddler quartet.
The dance lasted until 2 o'clock.
Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Harbke returned

best seats he had ever seen. Seats
should be individual, so that no pupil
