..The importance of .the Angora goat
industry in western Oregon is illus
trated by. the shipment a few days
. since of a carload about 130 head
to TeiaB by William Riddell & Soiib
of Monmouth. About one third of the
ohipment are females, the balance
bucks. Twelve, one buck and 11 fe
males, are taken by tne experiment
station of the Texas Agricultural col
lego, which also took "8 few from U.
H. Grant of Dallas. These are very
fine goats and a high price was paid.
The Angora industry in Texas is com
paratively new and state and college
oji'icials feel tiie need of more knowl
edge on the subject, hence the ex
periments as to the best way of feed
ing and caring for them to get the
most profitable results in hair and in
breeding. Jn Texas the goats are
sheared twice a year and the hair is
finer, but not so heavy as in the
moist climate and with the rich feed
of this region.
Part of t'ue carload is contracted
for and part of it is taken by Leslie
Kiddell to iiis ranch in Texas, where
the demand for Angnpts is active. Les
lie is a son of William Riddell, who
has been in Texas nearly three years
and is building up a reputation there
as Angora breeder, such as his father
and brothers ' at Monmouth. Dnlfcis

Judge Belt had a happy smile on his
face. Before him Kniurdny morning
lay a letter and a remittance of -t-U
from Herman L. Hoyt, .")0, now working
on a farm near Sheridan. The money
was for a heifer which Hoyt had stol
en from Henry O. Campbell's ranch
near Rickreull and for which offense
Judge Belt suspended passing sentence
at the last term of the circuit court
when it was shown Hoyt had previ
ously borne mi honest man 's reputa
tion and that his family was hungry
when he stole the heife The judge told
Hoyt that he would give him six
months in which to pay for the heifer.
In less than four months the man re
paid. "I could have sent In in to pris
on," said Judge Belt, "to rot." I'm
glad 1 didn't. If handled rightly, ninny
eases of this nature can lie settled by
a parole but it is mighty hard, some
times to know what to do. " At the
time of his trial public sympathy was
with Hoyt, the father of seven or
eight children, most of them small. Tie
could get no work and his little ones
were hungry. Dallas Observer.

Aeroplanes reported Russian troops
massing behind the Russian front but
no one believed the Russians as strong
as they have been discovered to be.
The Russian tactics kept the Austriaus
guessing for several weeks but now .the
whole Austro-tJermun front is reor
ganized and the earlier Russian advan
tages are being overcome.
The faU lf gtanislnfci and Goritz
were admittedly unpleasant, but viewed
strategically have a different meaning,
according to German military men.
These reverse 'were cioinpletv out
weighed by the Russian failure to
reach Kovel and Lemberg. The Ger
mans marvel that they didn't Buccoed
in view of the giguntic English and
French blows, but at the critical
moment, German troops arrived and
stiffened the lines east of Kovel.
We bivouacked last night near the
front where the Russians on Aug. 8, at
tempted a great offensive. . 1 walked
for two hours in the front line trenches
watching German eleven inch shells
bombarding the Russians. Major Von
Cheller, former attache of the German
embassy at Washington, and Cuptain
P. Behn, former German consul at
Denver, explained the lay of the sur
rounding country. .We also visited the
hendqnurters of General Bernhardi,'
who is coiuaiunding an army on this
front but lie wns suffering from in
fluenza and unable to receive us. j
The night scene at the front was
entrancing. The sky was lit by count
less great fires about which the com
panies were encamped within a . few
hundred yards of the Russian positions.
The bands played and the soldiers
sang. Not a single cannon wns fired.
There is a nightly truco. The Russinns
occasionally shoot light cartridges to
illuminate the fields between the
trenches and prevent a surprise attack.
Ear off in the distance nu Austrian
battery was pounding the Russinn rail
roads. ,
The new armies on this front are
composed of Polish, (iermnn und Aus
tin Hungarian troops which officers
said, illustrated the new spirit of com
radeship and is a sure indication of the
strength of the central powers.
Russinns Advance Lines. . .
Petrograd, Aug. III. Despite stub
born enemy resistouce at some points
the Russians advanced their lines on a
75 mile front, extending from the Car
pathians to a point southwest of Tarno
pol, iu yesterday's fighting, occupying
two villages.
Month of Brzezsny, another Russinn
detachment forced a crossing of the
Zlota I.ipa river. Austro-Gormnn coun

angle of the Zlota l.ipn nnd the Dnies

desperate enemy resistance, the Rus

the direction of the railway town of
Southeast of StanlNlnii, the right wing
of General I.etclnsky 's army raptured
the villages of Solotvlnn, nnd Grlava,

hour day, providing the question of
overtime shall be submitted to an inves
tigation, the employes today weie con
sidering a proposition embracing this
temporarily, with present rates for ov
ertime. Both sides would thus yield
somewhat from their original stand.
Climax Comes Tomorrow.
The employes insist the railroads or
the president suggest the means of in
vestigation and allow thera to pass on it.
One plan discussed is that advanced
by the Industrial Relations committee.
It provides that in case of a disagree
ment such as the present, a board of
mediation aud investigation should be
created, to includo one member 'from
each side and a third to be chosen by
the two selected, or by the president. It
would be necessary then to give by leg
islative enactment powers to the board
to administer oaths, subpoena witnesses,
compel attendance and testimony and
demand production of pertinent evi
dence from both sides.
It is understood that the employes
may be willing to make, or nt least con
sider a six months trial of the proposi
tion comprising an eight hour day and
present rutcs of overtime.
While the president today tempo
rarily ceased his activities as mediator
pending the conferences held by the em
ployes und managers iu New York and
Washington, administration officials
are hopeful that with the resumption
of direct efforts tomorrow, it will be
possible to establish the groundwork
for settlement.
Will Meet President,
New York, Aug. 0. Tho six hundred
representatives of the trainmen, threat
ening to strike for their demands of
an eight hour day and time and a half
overtime, will go to Washington this
afternoon to meet President Wilson.
W. S. Carter, president of the Broth
erhood of Firemen, who came to Now
York from Washington lust night to
submit the president's proposals to the
employes made this announcement to
day following a short conference with
some of the lenders. .
The proposal submitted by Carter
wns that the railroads would adopt an
eight hour rule for a triul period but
continue the present schedule of over
time. The ilOO representatives of the
100,000 employes nre district chairmen
of the vnrious brotherhoods and it is in
their hands that final decision on nn
ceptanco or rejection of the proposals,
looking to averting a strike rests.
Immediately after announcing thut
the chairmen' would go to Washington.
Carter went into conference with Ihein
nt Webster hall.
The 000 representatives of the tiuin
men formally voted in 'favor of going tn
Washington" to confer with the presi
dent. No other action was tuken.
Causes Uneasiness.
Washington, Aug. HI. Success or
failure in reaching a 'common ground
for settling the threatened general rail
road strike hinged today tin the dis
posal of other issues, growing out of
the eight hour day principle.
Hope of arbitration has gone. The
president is understood to have ilefinite
discardcil this as a menus of accom
plishing peace. Hut there was strong
hope that with the railroad conced
ing the basic principle of the shorter
working dny, some way would be found
to satisfactorily dispose of the quest-on
of the collateral issues including over
time puy.
An indication flint the general situa
tion is such as to give cause for some
uneasiness is found in the fact thut the
president deems it advisable to appeal
directly to the liOO members of the em
ployes general committee now in New
York, awaiting developments. These
men have been asked to come to Wash
ington and President Wilson will speak
to them in the big gold room of the
White House probably tomorrow after
noon or Friday. The appeal to the gen
eral committee is made at the sugges
tion of the employes sub-committee, w ho
believe that if the men they represent
can hear from the president, the same
arguments presented in conference here,
the 1100 mny yield on certain points
which the sub committee is now com
pelled to stnud by.
