WILLIAM 0. SCOn IS PNEUMONIA VICTIM "WE LOVE OUR WORK, BUT" Heppner Rodeo Draws Big Crowds and Was Much Enjoyed. SHOW A BIG SUCCESS Event Were Snippy and Strong Com petition for Every Conteet; Lot all Win All Flint Prlies. Heppner's third annual Rodeo wai the meant of drawing Urge crowd! to the city on Thursday, Friday and Saturday lait; the lait two dayi bringing the moit people to witness the event! at Gentry field. Thursday opened up rather gloomily, as in the morning It wai raining and dark eloudi hung over the city to luch an extent that it was feared the day'i performance might have to be called off. Thii, of coune, leisened the at tendance for the flrit day, yet in the afternoon it turned more pleasant and the big ihow got under way. In figuring up the total attendance, how ever, it wai found that the crowds were not so large ai last year, and this may be accounted for by the present financial conditions; our peo ple did not have the money to spend, and they were compelled to remain away on this account. Those at tending were given a good ihow better than the year before, and the management are to be congratulated that all events were pulled off prompt ly, while the perfnrmen came through without any serious injuries being inflicted to either man or beast. Being a local production, and the performers being practically all lo cal men and boys, the Rodeo creates an interest that is different from the professional performances pulled off elsewhere. A few profeiionals were entered in events here thia season. Iced I'arker, Ed Thompson and George Fletcher taking part in bucking and ateer roping contests, follow up the round-ups and rodeoa each season, and they came over here from Pen dleton, expecting to carry off the prises in the leading events. They found themielvei up against iom good local talent, and they found, also that somt of the horses produced here were about as wicked buckers as they run up apainst anywhere. The Condon band was here for the second and third days and added n.uch to the entertainment. The boy were loaded to the guards with plenty of good music and war not stingy in jilaying it, giving concerts in the afternoons and evenings at well as playing at short intervals at the! grand stand at the grounds. An or- chestra from Condon also furnished the music for the dancing at the pa vilion each evening. On the second day Miss Alice Rlet mann of lone was crowned queen of the Rodeo and she presided in a real queenly manner. Being an excellent horsewoman, Mias Rietmann was praised for the way the handled her steed at the head of the parades. On the grounds there was nothing to mar the fdll enjoyment of the events, and Friday and Saturday were beautiful days, the rain of Thursday having settled the dust and there wai no wind, so the weather conditions could not hsve been better. The large crowds in the city on those days seemed to enjoy themselves immense ly. The concessions at the fair grounds were fairly well patronized but no great amount of money was spent there, and the complaint went up that the carnival and other con cessionaires failed to make any profit on their three days stay in the city. The management reports that they will come out O.K. from a financial standpoint and meet all obligations, having but lltlte left, however, to carry over for another year. The results of the events for the three days follow. In tome of these the finals, only, are given. Saddle Horse Race tt-mile, three day event.

Tax Fact Finding Committee of the Portland Chamber of Commerce strongly recommends the repeal of the present state income tax law, and Whereas, the Board of Directors examined many statements of in vestors both from within and without the state to the effect that by reason of the passage of the Oregon Income Tax Law, many investments have been and are being reduced, withheld, with drawn or suspended pending repeal of the law, and finds the evidence substantiates the contention that due to this law many millions of dollars have been diverted from investment in Oregon industries that would pro vide a home market for Oregon ag ricultural products and contribute to the development of our state; and Whereas, it is the opinion of the Board of Directors that the only sub stantial relief that may be looked for from our present tax burden is thru the increase of industry, population and taxable wealth within the state, which increase is being and will be greatly retarded by the present law as shown by the, evidence referred to; and Whereat, no directly competing state has ever adopted an income tax law and, as revealed by the Tax Fact Finding Committee's report, only thir teen states have personal Income tax laws, the only northwestern states in this number being Oregon and North Dakota; therefore be it Resolved by the Board of Directors of the Portland Chamber of Com merce, that the Board indorses the Committee's recommendation that the Oregon State Income Tax Itw be re pealed, and urges the memben of the Chamber and other voters of the state to vote at the November election for the repeal of this law. SALT AS A PREVENT IVE FOR GOITER. From State Board of Health. That the State of Oregon has an abnormally high percent of individ uals affected with goiter hat been a matter of common knowledge for years, but only recently has any par ticular attention been given to it. Iodine is necessary for the proper function of the thyroid gland. When the storage of iodine in the thyroid gland gets below 0.1 the gland be gfns to enlarge and a goiter is formed. It has been shown beyond doubt that endemic goiter is due to a deficiency of f'rdine in the water and food in gotterous districts It is also known that beginning goiters have frequent ly been made to disappear by the use of Iodine. Goiter Is prevalent in cat tle, horses, sheep, hogs, and poultry of goiterous regions A very small amount of iodine taken with the food prevents the development of goiter in these animals Kndemic goiter T definitely and easily preventable. Existing enlarge ment may be frequently caused to dis appear through administration of some form of iodine As to the form of iodine to be used, it should be tow in cost and in a form that wilt insure its regular use. The choco late iodine tablet taken once a week has been found convenient and palat able. This Is the continuous method and is preferable to the saturation method of giving iodine once or twice year. Next to water, common salt Is the most universally used article of food. Most salt brines from which salt Is crystalHxed contain a small amount of iodine, but in the process of re flnement and crystallisation the io dine is lost. Salt manufacturers are now placing on the market table salt containing iodine A small quantity of iodine in the food will make chil dren immune from simple goiter. Common salt is something that is used by everyone regularly. Salt is therefore an ideal medium for sup plying iodine to children. The average person eats about seven pounds of salt a year and in order to furnish sufficient iodine ,02 of sodium Iodide has been added to common table salt. Thre is no danger of causing ill effects by the use of Iodized salt. Common table salt containing this quantity of sodium iodide is there fore recommended for the preven tion of simple goiter. Simple goiter ia a gland enlargement which can be prevented If treated in time. on Poul H. but refused to make good when he was apprised that he did not win first in the finals.

Votes from twenty-seven states have been received and in numbers sufficient to indicate the trend of po litical sentiment. These states are from all sections of the country and beat out the prediction that the na tion is now into one of the closest political races in many years. This nationwide teat vote is con sistent with other straw votes and shows Coolidge leading, La Follettte second and Davis third. However, this vote shows Davis running a bet ter third than do some of the other test votes, namely the Literary Di gest vote and Hearst's Newspapers' poll. This can be accounted for in that this newspaper's poll embraces the rural vote, while the other two are mostly from the cities. The latest returns in the Literary Diif st poll shows Coolidge for in the lead. His vote is 162,473 to La Fol lette's 63,534 and Davis's 42,611. La Follette is running neck and neck with Coolidge in California, In the Digest poll. This is consistent with thin newspaper's poll. The vote being taken by the Hearst newspapers shows a strong La Fol letto sentiment but the same posi tions of the candidates: Coolidge first, La Follette second, and Davis third. Latest tabulation of this newspa per's poll shows Coolidge with 87,824, La Follette 65,398, and Davis 59,797. The table below shows how the voting is progressing in twenty-seven states throughout the country: Cool. LaFol.

Senator Henry J. Taylor was fn Heppner from his Pendleton home on Friday nnd Saturday, taking this op portunity of meeting a very large number of his constituents in Mor row county who were also in the city attending the Rodeo. Mr. Taylor was accompanied by Mrs. Taylor and Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Wattenburger of Echo, and the company enjoyed a fine visit with many old-time friends here. Senator Taylor is very earnest in his desire to support any and all leg islation that tends to reduce the tax ation in the state. During the last session of the legislature, being a member of the ways and means com mitte, he had a pretty strenuous fight in keeping down appropriations, and he appears to be none too well pleas ed with the way things stand at pres ent in this regard; expressing a feel ing that our "promising" governor has failed to make good on the tax reduc tion question. In other words, Mr. Taylor believes that you cannot in vent means of spending more money and expect to reduce taxes. Beinir a consistent democrat, Mr. Taylor is supporting his party's nominee for president and thinks Mr. Davis a very fine man for the place, but would not venture the statement that he expected him to succeed in the elec tion.

Justice Cornett Has Busy Day On Monday The court of Justice Cornett was quite busy on Monday, following the wind-up of the Rodeo A number of arrests were made for liquor selling, possession of liquor and intoxication. State prohibition officers were pres ent during the days of the show, and they were pretty active. Just how many Invaded the confines of Hepp ner was not known, but their pres ence here was noted, and violators of the Volstead Act were pretty cautious. The following cases were disposed of in the Justice court on Monday, each party pleading guilty to the charge filed against him and not standing trial: George Elder, selling liquor; fined $250 and costs. Ed Kissler, of Yakima, selling liquor, $250 fine and costs. E. M, Graven, possession of liquor, fine of $25 and costs. Fred McMurray, possession liquor, a fine of $150 and costs.

For reckless' driving Cleo Drake was given a fine of $10 and costs. Some other cttses are Btilt pending in the justice court, the result of the activities of the prohibition officers here during the week. It is likely these cases will go to trial before a jury.

Pelt S Bethel Missionary society held its September meeting last Tuesday af ternoon in the chapel. The rooms were exquisitely decorated with a profusion of cut flowers and blossom ing vines. Chinese draperies and art lights added to the charm of the at mosphere. A most' interesting and instructive program on China was given by Mesdames McAtee, Soren ron, Phelps, and Mahoney. Mrs. Ed ward Chinn read the Twenty-Third Tsalm in Chinese, after which Master Daniel Chinn admirably rendered a ?oh in the same language. Refresh ments consisting of Chinese noodles ir, large Chinese bowls, and tea in dainty Chinese cups were served by Mrs. Chinn. Silver chopsticks wer passed -and were also passed on as most of the ladies were too timid to attempt their use. Mrs. Chinn, as hostess, was assisted by Mesdames John Patterson, Phelps, Frye and Pruyn. The society had, as its guests, Mrs. Bennett of Pennsylvania and Mrs. Wilson of Iowa. All declared themselves as having spent another one of their beneficial and pleasing afternoons together in the Chapel rooms. Frits Rader appeared in the court of Justice Cornett this week and paid a fine that was assessed to him a number of months ago for violation of the prohibition laws. Mr. and Mrs. B. E. Lowry arrived Tuesday from Santa Anna, Calif., for an indefinite visit at the home of her son, R. W, Lowry in this city. Sam Hughes departed for Portland on Tuesday to be absent in the city for a few days on business. Lexington Will Play At Boardman Saturday The Lexington high school will have their first game of football on Saturday, engaging the Boardman team at Boardman. The outcome, of course, is just a little uncertain, as the boys have not had time to get into trim Heretofore the Lexington high school has been mighty hard to beat, but there will be many new men in the lineup and it remains to be seen just how they are going to per form. Saturday's game will help to get a line on their work. Prof. Fred Kelly, principal of the Lexington school informs this paper that the new school year is starting off fine. Tho enrollment in the high school is 42 and the grades 61 at pres ent He expects that this number will be increased as the work on the farms for the fall is coming to a close. The assistants- of Mr. Kelly in the hi'h school are Mrs. Vera Kelly and Es ther E Lemery. Myrtle McNeill has the 7th and 8th grades; Audra Gro gan, 5th and 6th; Gladys Benge, 3rd nnd 4th; nnd Pearl Vnil 1st and 2nd. Sfi LA Prospects for Completion O.-W, Highway Not Good It was not with any great degree of optimism that Judge Campbell and Commissioner Davidson made a visit to Portland durir.g the past week to hold a confab with the state highway commission: ii fact their enthuaius-n was so small, and their knowledge gained from previous visits was so great, that they did not appear at the sittings of the commission at the court house In Multnomah county at all, but used a little strategy and got a hearing with Commissionr JQuby on the side, presenting their proposition to him. it did not take long to find where he stood. Mr. Duby is a kind ly gentleman, and well disposed to do all that he can for every county in the state finding itself somewhat in our position, but what is to be done when the county has no money to put on the table, and has to come up with the propostiion of seeking aid for the completion of a state highway within its borders and has to admit that they can offer no cooperation. So there seems just at present no solu tion to the problem of completing the Oregon-Washington highway in this state. The seeking of federal aid Is fruitless, and in order to get money to cooperate to an extent that the state highway commission might aid us, would necessitate a bond issue and this, too, is impossible and can not be thought of. Commissioner Duby has consented to make a visit to Heppner in the near future, when the entire situa tion wilt be gone over with the busi ness men here and the attitude of the commission in this regard be made fully known. C. A. Minor Takes Lease On Webb Bros. Ranch C. A. Minor is getting back Into the sheep game again. He has taken & lease on the place of Webb Bros, on Thorn creek and will run sheep re cently purchased on this ranch. Paul Webb, who has been living on the place and looking after things during the past year, is moving with his family to Walla Walla where they will reside. STILLS ARE CAPTURED. Sheriff McDutTee and a couple of state prohibition officers landed three stills on the farm of Richard Jones on Rock creek Tuesday, and arrested Robert Warren and his son as the persons responsible for the operating of the moonshine outfit. Together with the stills, which were just being made ready for a run, was taken three barrels cf mash. The outfits were brought to town and are now on dis play at the sheriff's office. Warren and his boy will have their hearing later. From what we were able to learn the outfits had been in opera tion for a long while, and the officers had some difficulty in locating Jthe plant. It was finally found under a pig stye. SPECIAL MEETING OF RED CROSS. Mrs, Bonnie Cochran, chairman of Heppner chapter of the American Red Cross, announces that there will be a special meeting of the chapter on Friday evening, Oct 10th, at the of fice of Judge Wm. T.

Dempsey and Defense Day Very good news for the United States is this: The President la considering the relative ralue of battleships and air planes. Those that sell battleships at forty million dollars apiece will tell the President that the country can't sur vive without plenty of battleships. Manufacturers of hansom cabs would also have said a little while ago that the taxicab couldn't be a real success. Before the President builds an other battleship let him aBk the build er this question: "Are you willing to build that ship for forty million dollars and guaran tee that it will be afloat ten hours after being attacked by one hundred thousand dollars' worth of fighting airships? If the President discovers, as he will, that a hundred thousand dol lars' worth of airships, manned by ten men, can destroy any forty-million dollar battleship with more than a thousand men on board, he -will decide not to build battleships Governor Pinchot has signed the death warrant of a young colored woman who killed a colored police man and pleaded self-defense. She will be the first woman executed in the State of Pennsylvania in thirty five years. Governor Pinchot signed the death warrant when he was in the hospital When he comes out, entire ly recovered, it may occur to him that putting a negress to death in stead of locking her up is small busi ness for a great State. The question is not "Does she de serve death?" It is "Does Pennsyl vania deserve disgrace?" There are now regular quotations for counterfeit notes. The average price is $25 for $100 worth -of bogus bills. The market is stabilized by the demand for such money, used by bootleggers in buying liquor from the rum fleet, sent by our British brothers. The managers of the boats are good bootleggers, but not familiar with American money, and many, it seems, nave been taking bad iunev for worse whiskey which seems fair enough. A Presbyterian church in New Jer sey spent $4,000 in one year, taking care of a huge oak 400 years old. The oak may be worth it. But that sum would have planted several thou sand trees along New Jersey roads. Or, if you don't resent dragging in religion, it would have done a good deal to help some of those "little ones that are supposed to be more important than many oaks. Above the base at Quantico, Va., flying machines are practicing, and on the ground our honest U S. Marines in deep amazement, "observed that a flock of buzzards, after watching the aviators, imitated all their flying tricks in the air." You remember the gentleman with his house on fire who gathered in his arms the furniture he could carry, finally picking up the baby with his teeth fastened in the little dress. As he lifted the baby he saw a cat walknig acress the floor holding a kitten in her mouth, and said, "Look at the wonderful imitation of that cat." W. I. ni)llflfl Hiort in Rnstrtn loot week.

Those that consider Preparedness and Defense Day a menace to peace please notice this: Jack Dempsey is prepared. If you doubt it, pull his nose.

NATIVE OF CANADA Bora Jane 17, 1862; Came- to Oregon In 1385 and Built Up Reputa tion for Square Dealing. Following an illness of about three weeks, during which time he was a sufferer from an attack of pneumonia, W. G. Scott passed away at his home in Lexington on Friday morning at 8 o'clock. While on a trip to Spokane about three weeks ago, Mr. Scott was taken ill and on arriving home he was com pelled to seek his bed, a severe case of pleural pneumonia having devel oped. Just prior to making the Spo kane trip, Mr. Scott complained of feeling bad and thought he was com ing down with a spell of sickness. He made the trip in his ear, however, as he was anxious to do some business with the Federal land bank on behalf of those in his community who were in need of assistance, and as was his custom when business called, he pro ceeded with the business in hand re gardless of his physical condition. Arriving home it was soon discovered that Mr. Scott was a very sick man, and though a strong fight was put up the ravages of the disease could not be overcome, and the final call came to him on Friday morning. Realis ing that he would not likely get well, Mr. Scott arranged his business af fairs' and made all suggestions as to his funeral, asking that his attorney, C. E. Woodson, make a short address and that all things pertaining to his funeral be simple The funeral was held at the home in Lexington on Monday at 10:30 and was very largely attended by friends from over the county. Rev. Ten Broeck, rector of the Episcopal church at The Dalles, read the scripture and offered prayer, and a quartette sang. Mr. Woodson, following the request that had been made, delivered the discourse, which was a short recital of the life of Mr. Seott as it had been lived during the many years he re sided among the people of Morrow county, ind in appropriate language the record that had been thus lived was set forth to the people gathered on the lawn nnd under the shade trees at the beautiful Scott home, who could alundantly testify to the correctness of the statements made. A simple service was held at the grave, where a song was sung and the committment service was pro nounced by Rev. Ten Broeck. William G.
