A considerable number of citizens
met at the council chambers Monday
evening to arrange for a memorial
service to be held Jane 14. After a
short discussion it was decided to put
the arrangemet of program into the
hands of a committee to be appointed
by Mayor Gilliam. He named the
It was decided, however, that the
more appropriate service would be to
hold a prayer and song service to be
followed by grave decorations. The
Heppner papers were requested to pub
lish in this connection a call for floral
contributions from onuide towns for
grave decorations. So all Times ex
changes are requested to publish a
short notice aekin'g their readers to con
tribute flowers for the purpose of de
corating the graves of those who lost
tbeir lives in the flood of June 14, 1903
It is also requested that contributions
be shipped so as to reach Heppner on
the evening of the 13, of June.
A program will be arranged by the
committee and will be published in
these columns later.

Lake County the Scene of
Band of Outlaws.
SUSPICIONS OF MURDER
More than $25,000 Worth of
Property Has Been Destroyed
In Northern Lake County
A special from Lakeview to the Ore
gon tan says :
A reign of terror exists in Lake con nty.
Iu the face of a daring defiance of law
that approaches civil war, the peace
officers are powerless. Thus far about
$25,000 worth of property has been de-
itroyed and one life bas been sacrificed.
On February 2 a band of 3000 sheep was
kil'ed. On March 4, a prominent mer
chant of Silver Lake, Ore., J. C. Conn,
died from two bullet wounds, which the
verdict of the Coroner's jury held to be
self-inflicted. Certain circumstances
connected with his death lead to the
Strong suspicion that be was murdered.
On April 28 another band of 2700 sheep
was annihilated. The perpetrators have
issued notice that they will kill anyone
who offers a reward or who attemps to
make an arrest. They have warned
other sheepowners to move tbeir bands
from the cattle range of northern Laki
county or suffer tbe consequences.
The circumstantial evidence leading
up to the belief that the death of Creed
Conn was a murder and that it was
committed to conceal the identity of
the outlaws is shown in the following
The particular prejudice against the
j first sheep killed, the McKuna band,
I was that it came from California into
Oregon pastures. It had been on the
road s'nee last October for the Winter
grazing grounds of the desert. There
were 9000 sbeep at that time, but a bare
3000 returned to California. Upon the
receipt of the news of the killing of the
first band of sheep, a great wave of in
dignation swept over the county. The
Lakeview, Paisley and Silver Lake
papers were loud in tbeir demands that
the men be found and punished.
District Attorney L. F. Conn announced
that be would take steps to bring the
parties to justice. Tbe belief was gen
eral that he would seek the co-operation
of his brother, Creed Conn, who lived
among the outlaws and knew each one
of them personally. The killing took
place only 10 or 12 miles from his store,
among the buttes of the desert, near
Christmas Lake. He had soli the
ammuniation and the guns that killed
the sheep. To the outlaws Creed Conn's
attitude and subsequent movements
would be a constant source 'of wonder
ment and fear.
Shortly after the killing of the sheep,
Creed Conn made a trip to Lakeview,
120 miles, and was in consultation with
his brother Life. What took place be
tween the two brothers is not known.
But tbe outlaws probably argued like
this: "It is unusual to make a trip to
Lakeview in this Winter weather. He
has gone to give us away. He simply
wants to make a record for his brother
as Prosecuting Attorney. What do you
think of a man that would do that after
he bas fed off of us all these years?
He should be given an object lesson."

Beat Cough Medicine for Children.
When yon buy a cough medicine for
small children yon want one In which
you can place Implicit confidence. You
want one that not only relieves but
cures. You want one that Is unquestion
ably harmless. Yon want one that Is
pleasant to take. Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy meets all of these conditions.
There is nothing so good for the coughs
and colds incident to childhood. It is
also a certain preventive and cure for
croup, and there is no danger whatever
from whooping cough when it is given.
It has beeo uted In many epidemics of
that disease with perfect success. For
