Governor Chamberlain by a procla
mation iirmod floturday morning hisl
called a spuclnl seraion of the Oregon
legislature to convene at Salem at 10
o'clock Monday forenoon, December ai.
The purpoae of the legion ia to correct
the (Indict in the tan law arriving from
Hie amen Imonta made by the passage
of uumte bill 107 last winter.
The law aa it atan la now, does not
authoilze a tax levy in January, and

(II. tricta would lie without funds to pay
Intercut on warrants. The Interest
expense from thin cause, It ia estimated,
would be from $100,000 to fioo,ooo,
while the coat of a sclal session, if
brief, will not exceed $20,000, and will
probably be much Icai.
The call for the apeciul session merely
makes reference to the act that needs
correction. When the Legislature haa
organized, the Governor, aa required by
the conalitutlon, will deliver to them
bia message, atatiug the purpose for
which they were convened.
Governor Chamberlain alao ordered a
special election In the Nineteenth Sena
torial District, coin posed of Clatsop
county, to Oil the vacancy caused by
the election of C. W. Fuhoo to the
United Stalea Senate, and in the Ninth
Hciitttorlul District, compoaed ol Crook,
Grant, Klamath and Lake counties,
to (ill the vacancy caused by the elec
tiou of J. N. Williamson to Ccngress,
The special elections will be held on
which went Into effect last Sunday,
are satisfactory to stations on the Hopp
ner branch line, being a little more
convolent than the old schedule.
The Heppner branch train now leaves
Heppner at 9 a. m, and arrived at 5:10
p. m. The departure cf the train, it
will be noted, is 45 minutes later than
the old time, whii:h, will give so much
more time to get morning mall Into
the office, This will be appreciated as
heretofore in order to get a letter into
the morning mail it was necessary to
cut the morning nap about an hour
The change on the main line is such
that it is practically the same as the
old as far as Heppner branch passengers
are concerned. No. 1 west bound
arrives at ttie junction at 11:50 a. m.
and at Portland at 5 130 p, m., an hour
later than the old schedule. But as
there wa no time left for business in
Portland on the day of arrival, the
hour's difference in time will be scarcely
No, a east bound will leave Portland
at 8:50 a. m. and arrives at the Junc
tion at 2:30, connecting with the Hepp
ner train. The time of the other main
line trains are of little interest to the
people here as they do not connect
with the home train.

Cattle Raisers Will Ship Beef
Stock Direct to Market.
Tiie stockmen of the 6usanville
country, and all of the stock raiting
districta in that part of the state, have
come to the conclusion that they are
not getting a fair deal at the hands of
the cattle buyers for export as well as
at the hands of the retail men of the
local markots, says the East Oregonlan.
A company of these men, representing
at least $(iO,000 in capital, have there
fore banded themselves together for
the purpose of realising more on their
atock. It is their intention to ahip
thoir stock to the coast markets direct,
and to sell them direct to the meat
companies, tuus saving ttie buyers'
profits, besides also holding the poesl
biiity of being able to force the price
up to a reasonable figure.
The company will have its own ship
pers permanently employed, and the
scheme will be practically a cattle pool,
embracing all of the principal herds iu
In order to got at the local dealers
who, so the men claim, are not giving
all that they could afford to for beef
cattle, it is the intention of the stock
men to cstabliBb retail markets in
Pendleton and Baker City, If such a
market is established in the cities
mentioned, it will have a tendency to
put moat bt fore the retail customer at
a lowor figure than at the present time,
for there will he no middlemen's profits
Just when the enterprise will be
launched Is not at present known, but
it is understood that the matter has
been definitely decided upon, and that
the near future will Bee the opening of
the shops and the commencement of
the retail work.
OPERA HOUSE WELL FILLED
Margarita FischoJ Company
Played to Large Audience
The grand Opera house bad a fair
silted audience last evening to witness
the production of the military drama,
"The Flag of lm," ant '.th Flo
tation was evidently entirely satisfac
tory, judging from the pleased attitude
of the spectators. The play is one in
which there is a certain amount of
heart interest, mixed in with a ju
dicious measure of comedy, which
combines to make a story which will
not fail to hold the attention of an
The company on a whole appears
to better advantage in this play, than
previously, and the work of the caBt
waagood, and cannot be complained
of. Of course, it is to be expected
that a company playing in repertoire
will do better work in some of their
plays than in others, unless the com
pany is a very strong one, and as has
beep said before the performance last
evening was well rendered.
Again Miss Margarita Fischer ap
pears in the leading role, and her scenes
were well carried out. Her work was
very well done, and she played with
the air of the finished actress tod was
seen in the role of Annie Hewins.

Charles Cunningham Talks

Very litte Interest haa become mani
fest so far in the Heppner city election
which will be held Monday, December 7.
The slate as it now reads, if we are
correctly Informed, ia as follows: For
mayor. Prank Gilliam; recorder, J. P.
Williams; treasurer L. W. Briggs,
councilmen, Ed Day, Thos. Quaid and
Fred Warnock. Of these all are for
reelection with the exception of Day
There is very little talk ao far in
regarj to the election, and no enthusi

ticket will be put op in opposition to
the one here mentioned.
Asa B. Thompson's Trial.
"Oh its all politics," said Chales
Cunningham, familiarly known as the
sheep king of Umatilla county, in a
conversation last night regarding the
indictment returned by the frderal grand
jury against Aea B. Thompson, receiver
of the LaGrande land oflice, in weich
Mr Thompson is charged with having
solicited bribes to insure final proofs on
certain batf-ad enteriea.

affair, but the men who were fighting 1
it for him did, and he was going to stay
with it now that he had gone so far.
When asked as to what tie entire
political significance was, he refused to
aiate except that otherB than himself
were interested in it. He said that
Sato Jackson, of the Portland Journal,
would be one of the principal witnesses
for the prosecution. When asked as to
who would get the place if Asa B.
Thompson should be found guilty, he
refused to say, only the suggestion of
Al Roberts he laughed to ridicule.
The trial of Asa B. Thompson comes "
up for hearing in Portland tomorrow.
Both sides claim to have a very strong
case and both are confident of winning.
BUI to End Overgrazing.
Secretary Hitchcock haa sent to Con
gress the draft of the bill to control
grazing in forest reserves. The bill
imposes a flue of not to exceed f 1000,
or imprisonment for no longer than one
year, or both, upon persons who know
ingly pasture any livestock on public
lands within forest reserves, without
first obtaining permission from the
Secretary of the Interior.
Secretary Hitchcock, in his letter of
transmittal, says the proper control of
grazing within reserves demands that
there shall be no overgrazing, and ex
press the opinion that legislation he
recommends should be promptly en
acted to check an abuse that ia . be
coming general in some states.

A Small Blaze.
A fire in a room on the third floor of
the Palace hotel caused quite a flurry
of excltment Monday evening for a
short time. An alarm was sent iu
and the fire company responded prompt
ly, but by the time the company was
ready to turn on the water the incipient
blaze had been extinguished by atten
dants at the hotel. Only a small
damage was done to the room, the-
paper on the wall on one side being
burned. The greater damage was to
the wearing apparel of Miss Tilda Mor
ris, who occupied the room. The fire
is supposed to have etarted from the
stove as ther was no lamp in the room
and it started below the electrio wire
Only Makes a Bad Matter Worse
Perhaps you have never thought of
it but the fact mnet be apparent to
every one that contipation is caused by
a lack of water in the system, and the
use of drastic cathartics like the old
fubhionod pills only makes a bad matter
worse, Chomberhvln's Stomach and
Liver Tablets are much more mild and
gentle in their effect, and when the
proper dose, is taken thoir action is so
natural that one can hardly realize it is
the effect of a medicine. Try a as cent
