Hermann look upon bis coming trial ,
with the gravest apprehensions, j
Hermann's victory in Washington
was a signal one, aud was regarded by
bis friends as the nucleus of an ulti
mate vindication of all the charges
against him. However, it is apparent
that Mr. Heuey regarded the letter
case against Hermann as the weakest
of the cases against bim, and nianag-
ed to get out of prosecuting it. But
he is to retutn to Portland to try the
land fraud cases in July, which would
lead one to believe that he hopes for a
conviction ou this charge.

Mr. Hughes is a very strong man in
New York, as is Cannon in Illinois,

His Former Experiments
FARMERS JUBILANT OYER RESULT

Insure Good Crops in
"Rainmaker" Hatfield baa taken a
contract to cause 6 inches of rain to
fall in Sherman county beween the
28th day of May and the 25th day of
July. During this period for the past
seven years the maxrnum rainfall baa
been less than one inch.
Mr. Hatfield's aparatus for causing
rain consists of a tower 25 feet , bigh.
About Are feet from tho top are tem
porary floors surrounded by canvas
walls, which reach to the top of the
tower, the top being entirely exposed.
Witbin these walla are his instruments
consisting partly of electrical contriv
ance and 225 trays containing chemi
cals. The former are in constant mo
tion, throwing out vibrations into the
atmosphere. These vibrations attract
the clouda from a distance of three
bnndred miles. When condensed they
precipitate rain. The area over which
the storm continues and its duration
depend upon their prevailing direct
on. After active operations are be
gun it is usually from 24 to 48 boars,
and never jmore than five days, before
rain falls. "
Mr. Hatfield's former experiments in
California and Alaska bave been suc
cessful and b baa the utmost confi
dence in bis scheme.
Shorly afier be began bis operations
in Sherman county rain began falling
over the country within a radios of
75 miles, and Mr. Hatfield claims the'
credit for these rains.
There are skeptics who will not give
bim the credit, but be went there un
der contract to make it rain, and it
bas rained and keeps it up, the crops
are looking flue, never better, and be
says be now has the situation well un
der band and promises to furnish
occasional showers until the crops are
ready for harvest.
The farmers are sll jubilant over
the prospects and are well pleased
with the results of Hatfields experi
ments. They are having just the
kind of weather tbey have been pray
ing for, and are willing for the honor
to go where it may, so they get the
