Keen rivalry between Mr. Haak

plicated In the cause of the blaze
that recently wiped out several
buildings ut llouunzn.
No witnesses were called for the
defense it being the general im
pression that the ruse would have
to go to the grutid Jury before the
matter was finally threshed, out and
the accused either cleared or con
victed. The main witnesses Millet by
the state were II. K. Anglin, Martha
Yahr, and Mrs. William Wood. Theao
witnesses told of seeing; Mr. Clop-
toll R ,nto the postoffice building,
where the fire started, n few minutes
before the lire and of conditions and
actions of Mrs. Clopton. It Is claim
ed that Mrs. Clopton, who was In the
hotel adjoining the postofflce build
ing was up and dressed and that her
children were dressed much too soon
for this to have been done after the
alarm was given. 'The prosecution
tried to show that she did not have
time to dross herself and have her
children dressed between the time
the alarm was given and when she
was seen fully dressed.

registration in . Oregon for the prl-1
mary May 15, this year, totals 226.
924, with 11 counties reported un
officially. There will belittle change
either way in the final statement.
For the primary, 1912, when only
men voted, the registration was 131,
880. That the women will substan
tially figure In the primary and the
election In November is proved by
the registration in figures.
Colonel Itoosevelt, nominee of the
Progressive Party for President of
the United States in the election in
1912, was second choice for that of
fice of the electorate of this state.
The report made by Secretary of
State oleott of the registration of
this year shows the adherents of the
Progressive party to be Incousequen
ta'. as compared with the electors
who have pledged themselves to
vote for Republican and Democratic
nominees. y,
There are almost 5000 more Pro
hibitionists than Progressives, ac
cording to the Secretary of State's
report, and this party has Jumped
from 1655 to 11,177.
While, as stated above, eleven
counties are reported unofficially the
official returns will make but slight
difference as a close tab has been

Honey Lake Valley and south of

, While in Lakevtew it is under

Accofatng to buyers there will be
heavy shipments of sheep out of

great praise is due the students for
the success. Miss Church, the talent

Portland, Oregon, May 12. (Spe
cial) Reports from nearly every sec
tion of Oregon. Indicate that the
grain crop for 1914 will be the larg
est In the history of the state. Not
only has the grain acreage been
greatly Increased, but weather con
ditions have been unusually favor
able and in nearly all districts the
yield per acre will be larger than
usual.
Fruit reports from some sections
are not quite as eucouraglng as
grain estimates, but iu most cases
tho loss from frost has not exceed
ed the annual thinning of fruit. A
large acreago of new orchards will
produce the first commercial crop
this year and It is estimated the to

that of last year

Nt is Discussed Rate Case
Hearing Was IWtiKmed
The case of John Wall and others
against tG N.-C.-O. Railway regard
ing the changing of the location of
the Alturas depot was held at that
place last week before State Railway
Commissioner John M. Eshleman,
Rate Expert II. II. Sanborn and R. A.
Sollars, reporter.
T. F. Dunaway geueral manager of
the road was present, accompanied
by his attorney. Judge Glenn. The
people of Modoc County were repre
sented by Attorneys Corplsh and
Robinett."
Evidence was presented on behalf
of the people, showing reasons why
their petition for a depot in Alturas
where the railroad Intersects Modoc
Btreet, should be granted and proving
very strongly that such a depot
would be a great convenience to the
people of Alturas.
Some witnesses were put on by the
N.-C.-O. Railway Co., tending to
show that the site was objectionable
on account of the ground being too
low and of a nature which would not
be a good foundation for large build
lugs. The matter was taken under ad
vlsoment by the Commlpston, and
will be decided later.
The other case, namely the ques
tion of tho reduction of rates was
set for May 12, but we understand
that this henries hr.3 te n ;;-"t;:";oa
to August 18, for hearing.
