EI EXHIBITS GO TO
STATE FI AND
The Morrow County exhibit for the
State Fair and the Portland Land
Products Show left on yesterday's
train. They will go to Salem from
Heppner where Mr. Smead tells us
he will have the assistance of Mr.
Freytag to help him arrange and
prepare them for exhibition. Four
mammouth dray loads were sent.
Nearly all of the Irrigon fruit and
the fruit and vegetables of the Minor
Bros., all of the general county grain
exhibit, some of B. H. Peck's grain,
ali of the corn in the pavilion, and all
other fruit and vegetables that Smead
could get his hands on, you know how
much that would be, was in the ship
ment. The merchants of the city are
meeting the expense of this venture.
The Fair management states that
they came out better financially than
they expected, taking weather condi
tions into account. Reports from
those out of town who sent or brought
articles for exhibition state that they
were well pleased with the fair and
their showing. No kicks were heard
on any side. The remainder of the
week will be spent in cleaning up the
business of the fair board.
TO THE PUBLIC:
Last Friday evening while my house
was crowded with guests, Harry
Elliott and a young Brown boy enter
ed my place of business and came and
stood in the kitchen door, which kept
the waiter getting through and as we
were very busy we hollered at them to
get out of the way. They would not
do it. I told them to get out of the
doorway. Brown said he wouldn't
do it and talked like he wanted to
fight but I did not want to fight him,
I only wanted him to get out of the
doorway. I took a broom and hit him
and he tried to hit back at me. My
waiter then tried to nut him out and
he fought the waiter, hitting him in
tne bacK. several witnesses saw this
disturbance. One of my waitresses
had a peeling knife in her hand when
she asked the boys to leave and thev
went and told the marshal that the
lady had a long butcher knife and had
threatened their lives. The marshal
came to arrest Miss Dexter but was
informed by Mr. Holgate. a witness.
just what the true circumstances
were, the marshal forced me to put
up $40 bond for myself and waitress
and the Recorder now wants us to
pay a $10 fine each. The eye wit
nesses know that I tried to have no
trouble and only wanted the boys to
get out ot tne doorway so as not to

District Attorney Wells swore out
a wan-ant Monday evening for the
arrest of W. C. Cason, charging him
with the murder of Chas. Earhart on
the night of Saturday, Sept. 19,1914.

of A. E. Johnson, but later that night

Last Tuesday Mr. Fred Evans, of
Milton, brother of Sheriff Evans of
Heppner, accidently stepped on a car
pet staple. At first nothing was
thought of the incident but it gradu

it was found necessary to administer
an anesthetic to keep him quieted.

The Goulder family, with the excep-'
lion ot will, lei t yesterday morning
for their new home In Tangent, Ore
gon, where Mr. (ioulder will fill a
new position as pastor of the M. E.
Church South. Will intends to go to
Medford in the near future. The
(ioulder family have been a power for
good in this community. Mrs. t.ould
er and family always gave their aid
and support to every worthy cause
and their going will necessitate new
burdens on those who still carry on
the work. Rev. (ioulder is a type of
man who accomodates himself to
whatever community .e is placed in.
The Herald has known him more in
a business way and understands the
value of the work he has done for the
Commercial Club and the Fair Board,
lie has been Secretary of these or
ganizations and has assisted us many
tims in the collection of news con
cerning these organizations. The
value of a family to the community is
not always haw much money they can
pile up but the influence which radi
ates from their presence and measured
by this standard the (ioulder family
were among our most valued citizens.
Harvey Young has reconsidered his
intentions of attending the U. of 0.
this year and is back in Heppner.
He said it was almost impossible for
a stranger to secure any sort of work
in Eugene this winter and therefore
he would have to put in a year gath
ering up necessary sheckles to pay
nis expenses next season.
The Ladies of Heppner gave an in
formal reception to the Public at the
Masonic Hall last Friday afternoon be
tween 2 and f:.'!0 p. m. The Par

were served. Below is a partial list

GREAT FORTUNES FROM
By Heppner Branch No. 1
Do you know what it means
when one cent per pound is added to
the price of sugar? IT MEANS
jWO.OOO.OOO- A YEAR INCREASE OF
PR0P1TB TO. THE' SUGAR TRUST.
For ; every increase of one cent a
pound in the retail price of sugar the
trust increases their profits $70,00,
000 in a year. Within two months
rhe trust has raised the price of sugar
from 4H to 7V4, this being an in
crease of 3 cent a pound in the price
of sugar. $210,000,000 increase in
profits m one year for the sugar trust.
So you see that it pays to add one
cent and the other little cent to the
price of sugar. You can see why it
is than in spite of the increase in
wages and improved methods of manu
facturing and of farming the people
feel poorer and more worried every
year. The robbing of the people is
done so quietly, so gradually that the
Deople themselves hardly understand
how it is done. They don't realize
that a lot of organised capitalistic
bandits are laying upon them Taxes
so heavy that only the richest nation
in the World can pay I'icm.
We kicked King George and his
army out of this country because he
taxed the people. His taxes were
light compared to the present Taxes
these Capitalistic bandits levy on us
today. What would King George
think if he could come bark and see
the taxes which we stand for today?
He would say that these glorious
Americans Bre a queer people, they
who made such a fuss over my little
Mamp Act. And then allowing them
who were alleged to Iiave been quar
reling. She saw the shots fired, two
quick ones, a pause and then another.
She testified that she .rushed from the
side of her husband and up to where
the shooting had been done. She
said she was the first person on the
spot and that she remained there for
ten minutes or more. She heard Mr.
Earhart gurgle before he died.
Guy Boyer was the next witness.
His testimony was to the effect that
he saw the defendant standing in
front of the Rock Saloon while Ear
hart was inside of that place on the
evening of the tragedy.
Harry Brown testified that he was
tending bar at The Rock anoV saw Mr.
Cason standing outside while Mr.
Earhart was inside and also that Mr,
Cason came into the place, walked
back into the room and then turned
Groshen's Saloon, directly opposite the
shooting, and as there were no cus
tomers in the place at the time, he
was gazing down the street. He saw
a man with a light suit and stiff hat
(which tallies with the description of
the defendant) standing on the corner
and a little farther down the street
another man was coming up along
the sidewalk close into the building.
As the man coming up reached n
point near the steps on the corner in
front of the hotel he saw the flash
from a pistol and heard the report
very distinctly. In an instant he
saw two more flashes and heard two
more reports and saw the man on the
edge of the sidewalk jump at the man
near the building. The man near the
building stepped up on the first step
and then reeled and tell to the side
walk. Mr. Grogan saw one other man
standing near the man with the grey
suit before the shooting. He testified
that he heard no quarreling.
Marshal MeCraw was the next wit
ness and his testimony was identical
with what he gave at the Corooner's
The State then rested their case.
The defense introduced Wm. Pad
berg as their first witness. He testi
fied that he had known both parties
a long time and that Mr. Earhart had
threatened the life of the defendant
several times in his presence, and once
about two weeks ago.
.Doug. Gurdane testified that Mr.
Earhart had threatened the life of the
defendant and other lone people in his
presence, and in his place of business
about two weeks ago.
Sheriff Evans gave identically the
0ame testimony as he did at the
Coroner's inquest. Upon being ques
tioned regarding the presence of a
lady when he arrived upon the scene
the night of the shooting. He did not
really know whether he shot more
than once at Earhmt. He recited tr
the I ourt his ilinerences with Enr
hnrt in the past. Along about 190t
he said, when he was deputy sheriff
ander Shutt, he was called upon tc
arrest Earhart on a gambling charge
and from that time on Earhart was
his bitter enemy. Some time later
while on the streets of lone, Earhart
anie up to him in the dark and, with
i pistol against Cason's breast, forc
ed him to rgree to help him extricate
himself from his trouble. Cason
i greed to do so and got away witr
his lite. I luring the shooting scrape at
lone on July If, t'.IOS, Cason was again
'ailed upon to arrest Earhart, and
