The War Is Over
There will be no further struggle for supremacy among phonograph
inventors. Thomas A. Edison has produced the perfect sound repro
ducing machine-THE NEW EDISON DIAMOND DISC.
The fight has been on for thirty years, but nearly two years ago
it was ended once for all.
The Victory Is Complete
The Edison reproduces overtones that no other machine can
reproduce. It is because of the Diamond Point automatically moved
and balanced. It is wonderful. Don't you get tired changingthe need
les on the old style machine? Come in and see the Diamond point work.

THIS IS TRULY AN
AGE OF WONDERS
(From the Salem Salesman)
'West Virginia in adopting ita prohi
liition law was satisfied that the stat
ute was ao complete and ao carefully
worded aa to make the state ' booze
proof." It specifically forbade the im
portation of liquor by all the various
routes and methods the law makers
could think of. But they overlooked
one possibility that of smuggling liq
unr by aeroplane. Now it is reported
that an enterprising Ohio firm is plan
ning to alleviate the autTerng or thirstj
West Virginians by this very method.
Virginia, which has passed a similar
prohibition law, to become effective in
two yeais, has caught alarm from her
neighbor a peril, and seems determined
that aircraft shall never be utilized to
violate her own abstinence. The state
senate at Richmond has acted with
promptness and decision. It has adopt
ed unanimouly a resolution warning
the people of the state against possible
alcoholic invasion and giving notice
that beginning with the first day ol
November, 19 Hi, there will be estab
lished in Virginia an open season ot
continuous and unlimited duration for
hunting all such aerial intruders, pro
vided such hunting be done in good
faith for the purpose of destruction
and not for the purpose of acquiring
the Bpoils of the chase'
In comparison with this peril, what
are Zeppelin raids on England or
French, war planes hovering over Ger
man camps? We may eventually see
the northern border of Virginia and
West Virginia bristling with tall tow
ers and tilled with militiamen and
equipped with the latest high-angle
npid-firers to repel any airy ministers

Jsrr.es W. Marshall has always been
given me creait or finding gold in Cali
fornia in 1848. That state has erected
a fine monument in commemoration of
in is event, but it is probable that
L.naries Bennett, another Oregon pio
neer. was the real discoverer. Utnnett
and Marshall were both pioneera of Or
egon, coming in 1844, and both went to
California in 1847, where they were
erecung a sawmill at Sutlers ranch
and when they made the gold discov
ery. It was Bennett who recognized
that the rretal they found waa gold,
for he had mined in the south before
coming to Oregon, while Marshall only
knew what Bennett told him. Bennett
came back to Oiegon and in 1855 he
was appointed captain by Governor
Curry and waa killed in the historic
four days' fight with the Indiana where
frenchtown now is, near Walla Walla
His remains are interred in the I. U.
O. K. cemetery at Salem, which has
this inscription: "Charles Bennett.
oied December 7. 1855, age 44 years. 3
montns, zu aays. Erected by his wife.
Captain Charles Uennelt was the dis
covererof gold in California and fell in
defense of hia country at Walla Walla."
Pioneer John Mn.lo, of Salem, who
came to Oregon with Marshall and
Bennett, says that Bennett, with his
knowledge ol gold from his mining m
Georgia, waa the only man of the eight
men present at the discovery, to say
that the shining nebbies contained eolu
and he claims the honor for Bennett.
A Dallea company was engaged in
this tight in which Bennett lost his
life, which took place about 10 miles
below the present city of Walla Walla,
of which Orlando Humason was cap
tain, and Colonel James K. Kelly was
the commanding oflicer. This is the
Kelly after whom Kelly avenue is
It was in this battle that the old
chief, Fen-Pen-Mox-Mox, and several
Indian prisoners were killed, when try

Amos Underwood, now living at Un
derwood, Wash., was in charge of the
Indians as guard, and he Bays that it
was Nathan Ulney, the Indian agent,
who fired the fatal shot that laid the
chief out. W. 11. Gates was in this
fight, now of Spray, Wheeler county, a
brother or Mrs. Kate Gates Koach.
CorneliuB McKarland, who is Mrs. E.
C. 1 rice i father, was also in Captaii
Humason'a company, though Humason
was not in the fight, for he was sick at
home. Underwood says that as Neil
Mcrariand raised his gun to tire at an
Indian, the Indian's gun was discharged
and knocked off the hammer of Merer
Fen pen mox mox means yellow
hawk, because be had a hawk-bill nose.
John Todd, a pioneer of eastern Ore'
gan since 1852, now of Madras, and a
Dalles visitor last week, is an Indian
war veteran of 1856. He joined the
command at Juniper springs, near the
John Day river where Leonard's bridge
was afterwards constructed, in r ebru
ary, 1856. He was in the great battle
which took place in the Yakima valley
in which Captain llembue, hia captain.
lost his life. Mr. Todd says this battle
ended the war. He was a personal
friend ol Captain Hembue and rather
than have the body buried on the held
of battle, he requetsed Colonel Cornel
ius to give him two men for escort,
and he would convey the officer's body
to The Dalles for shipment to the Wil-
iamete valley. This he did by sus

Returns of annual net income, for
the income tax for individuals and for
corporatinos making their returns of
annual net income based on the calen
dar year, are due to e filed on or be
fore the first day of March, and failure
to tile such return on or before that
date will subject the delinquent tax
payer to an additional tax of 50 per
cent, and liability to heavy penalties
provided by law.
All taxpayers are urged to file his or
their return at the- earliest possible
date, and not to wait until the last day
when, through some mdavertence or
oversight, he or they may fail to file
return and thus be subject to the addi
tional taxes and penalties.
The early filing of returns is most
earnestly requested, so that the same
may be dealt with in a more prompt
and satisafctory manner, and questions
arising can be readily adjusted, afford
ing the internal Revenue office time in
which to do so.
Withholding agents should be partic
ular to ascertain their duties under the
income tax law, especially the fact that
persons against whom tax has been
withheld have the right under the law,
to file form 1008 with them not later
than 30 days prior to March 1, 1915,
and that therefore, the annual returns
of the withholding agents should not
be made until after that date.
Information in connection with the
preparation and filing of returns will
be gladly and promptly given, upon
application therefor either in writing
or in response to personal inquiry at
the Internal Revenue office, and it is
most earnestly requested that returns
be filed or information asked as early
as possible so that more careful atten
tion may be given to these details,
thus avoiding any questions arising
upon final experting of the returns at
Washington, D. C.
Remittances to the government for
payment of taxes should be in the form
of money order, bank draft or certified
check. Collectors have specific in
structions not to accept personal
checks, unless marked by the bank on
which they are drawn, and a departure
from such instructions is a violation of
the regulations governing the depart
ment. All information on Income tax may
be obtained upon application to Milton

ACROSS THE PLAIN'S
Guin. and a member of the Hood River
Pioneer Association, bas written for
me li lacier an account of his trip by
wagon across the plains. The first of
a aeries of article by Mr. Rand ia
I was born in Sleubenville, Jefferson
county, Ohio. August 28. 1835. A ben
I waa two years of age my parents re
moved to Jackson county. West Virgin
ia, where I spent my boyhood days, go
ing 10 acnooi in a little log scboolhouse.
Not a nail waa used in tha rnnatrnrt inn
of the building, the logs being put to
seiner isn wooden pins. The floor
and our seats were made of snlit Inoa
called puncheons. It was awfully tire
some to sit all day on these rough
benches without any backs.
In 1850 my parents started on a jour
ney to Madison, Wia. The trip was
made by water, on the Ohiu river, by
way of Cincinnati and St. Louis, and
thence up the Missouri river to Galena.
At St. Louia mi mother waa fatallv
stricken with cholera. Twenty-two
others on our boat died from the ehol
era and all were buried at St. louia.
Wa spent two veata at Dane rnuntv
Wia.. and then moved tn I. a
where my father died, leavinr fiva hnva
and two girls. I waa the oldest and
the two girls were the youngest. i
We remained at La Crosse for two I
years, and those were dayi of bard
limes. Before leaving Virginia my j
father had been forced to pay a note, j
which he had signed as security, and iti
bad taken nearly all of his fortune to
pay the claim. The trio to Wisconsin.
since there were no railroads then.was
very costly. 1 got employment in the ;
lumber camps of James McKinlev.
father of Horace G. McKinlev. who
ater figured in land fraud cases.
In September. 1857. 1 was married.
In 1859, in company with two uncles,
we crossed Wisconsin on our wav to
California. Our journey acrosa Wis
consin was a terrible one. for we were
beaten on by terrible snow and sleet
storms. We had a covered wagon and
three pair of oxen.
On May 3 we arrived at Council
Bluffs, where we waited fur more thxn
a week for enough gold seekers to
make up a company. It was dangerous
for small parties to attemDt to cross
the plains. A party of 100 had left for
the west a few days before we had
reached Council Bluffs.
While we were waiting mv uncles be
gan to get blue. They finally decided
to return, and attempted to persuade
me to go back with them. But I told
them that I had started to California,
and was going there. They sold the
wagon and their pair of oxen and then
took a steamboat bound down the
iver. After I had bidden them cood
bye, I retraced my steps to my camp
and sat down to think. Mv chin waa
hanging down almost to my waist line,
was so blue.
Two men drove up with two pair of
oxen and a covered wagon. They asked
me wnere 1 was going and I told them
that I was on the way to California.
We struck up a partnership. In a few
days we made up a party of 12 wagons.
We had 30 men, five married women
nd two girls in our company. Among
us was a man named Knann. about 65
years old, who jiad crossed the plains in
1850 and settled at Knapp Valley, Calif.
The two girls were his daughters. We
lected mm captain.
We crossed the river and'in lour dava
had reached Cottonwood creek. On
that day we camped rather early on ac
count of an approaching storm. We
made everything fast and appointed a
man to guard the Block to prevent
them from stampeding The lightning
was flashing and the wind roared. The
wind soon reached such a gale that it
was almost impossible to keep on our
feet. The rain and tornado lasted for
n hour. Who'n it was over every tent
had been blown down, two wagons were
on their sides and one was bottom side
up. There was no sleeping that night.
We were two days drying out our things
no repaiting our wagons.
the morning after the storm four
men came to our camp and asked for
something to eat. They stated that
(hey were on their way back to the
states. They had camped on the
edge of a lake a little further west.
They had had two pair of oxen, a cov
ered wagon and provisions, all of which
had been swept into the water and lost.
t waa only by almost superhuman
fforts that they bad saved themselves
from death. A grip containing their
money had been blown awav. Thev
had lost everything they had except the
clothes on their backs.
Although we were not in the best of
pints, on the morning of the third day
ifter the storm, we set off on our jour
ney. We had no more storms, and day
fter day we continued our same plod-
ing way. It seemed aa thoueh the
attle stirred up all the dust possible.
and soon we got so we did not mind
ating it. Our average day's journey
as 2o miles.
On July 3 we camped near Fort Lar-
mie, near the west end of the Platte
valley. Just about sunset the Over
land stage came up the road. There
were eight mules and an additional man
on mule back to help whip the team
along. The Btage was of. the old fash
ioned Concord style. Among the four
psssengers aboard was Horace Greeley,
vno, we were noiineo, was going to
peak that night at Foit Laramie.
Of course, all of us, except the guard,
iBrd that speech. I remember very
little of it except that he told us that
they were going to build a railroad.
That Oak Ames waa going to do the
work : for he had the shovels. We all
enjoyed the meeting and cheered Gree
ley s speech lustily.
