MURDERED BY INDIANS
Now Conceded that Redskins Killed
The Eagleville Stockovvners
BODIES WERE HORRIBLY MUTILATED
Renegades From Pyramid Lake Reservation Sup.
posed Guilty Parties--Arrests Momentarily
Expected, Although Feared They May
Sneak Hack and Escape
It is now generally conceded that the foul murder of
Camhron, Laxaue, Iirraniouj)se and Indiano in Little
Hih Rock Canyon a month ao, was the work ofa band
of renegade Indians from the Pyramid Lake Reservation.
The details of the massacre are too horrible to relate, as
the men were most shockingly mutilated. Contrary to
previous reports, it is now tne opinion that (mite a large
number of Indians are in the party, as there is proof that
six, instead of three, cattle were slaughtered, and when
the Indians broke camp they took with them all the beef
with the eicepttiii of tlva or six
hundred pouiirlH Hint whn in the pro
fees of jtrkluK. Tho Inrue uuiouot of
meat cniried Itxiioate. that the party
wiih n lurL'B one, ton Htroii fur the
pi.eF of twenty four men that m fob
lowing them to overwhelm, especially
if the Indiana w-.-uld fortify them
BelfeH aualuot their pureuers. Where
tt:ey nera encumped iu Little IDkIi
Kock canyon there were found do
empty tins or packages containing
proviidnua, e ideficlDa that meat was
their Bole ouKteoaoce, tin would be
the etie if they were savants.
It ia feared that the Indians will
epiiratc aud steal back to the reser
vation, where Identification will bo
iiuporgible. While reports are to the
effect that their purnuers were only o
few hours behind Tuumduy, yet no
word of the capture of the murderers
(mil been THCeived here up to 10
o clock thin inoruiutf. The latent
authentic news la the following dis
patch to the Keno Oazette:
"WINN K M U CC A . Ne., Feb '10 A

To Further Interest of All
What promises to accomplish much
foi all of OregjD, including tbis par
ticular secthio, is tbe Oregon Agri
cultural Experiment League which
was formed at the Oiegon Agricult
ural College in January by students
of the Winter Short Courses. Its
aim, as stated in its constitution is
"to further every branch of tgricul
tnral iuteiest In tbe state of Oregon
by means of experiments, tests aud
tbe collection of agricultural data in
co-operation with tbe Oregon Experi
ment Station and tbe O. A. C. Ex
tension Department and to report
and disseminate the results of tbe x
periments and tests and tbe ktow
ledge obtained therefrom"
To accomplish tbis aim, the League
proposes to ask its members to carry
on simple experiments on tbeir own
land under tbe direction of the ex
perts of tbe Agricultural College. It
makes no difference whether you are
a general farmer or a specialist in
dairying, animal husbandry, horti
culture or any branch of agriculture.
If a siugle investigator at an Ex
perimnt Station can gain invaluable
kuowledge from one agricultural ex
periment. Imagine tbe accuracy aud
7alue cf the leaults which may be
obtained from carrying on tbat same
experiment on a hundred farma scat
tered all over the state. A similar
league, the Ontario Agricultural Ex
periment Unlou of Cauadu has for
twenty-live yeirs been assisting its
members ia solving their agricultural
problems aud has increased the pro
duction of farm crops from 11 to 2o
per ceut in twelve years. It has over
0.000 members aud bag performed
00,000 experiments in agronomy alone.
The expenses of the Oregon League
which consist mainly of the cost of
printing, postage and materials aie
borne chietly by tbe Oregon Agricul
tural College and tbe admission fee
is but one dollar with anuual dues of
one dollar payable February 1. begin
niog Io 1912.
Tbe League should make for fuller
and better agricultural kuowledge,
'or tbe llgthening of farm burdens,
for the solution of farm problems and
for a greater Oregon. It invites the
memtierehip of every up-to-date
farmer and orohardiat of tbe state.
Further information will gladly be
furnished by tbe seoretary, Stanton
UrifUs, Corvallia, and applications
for membership should be addressed
to bun aud accompanied by the ad
mission fee of one dollar.
