Although St. Holens succeeded In getting with in fifteen or twenty yards of tho goal, they wero unable to mnke a touch down. Thus, tho score was 24-0 Perry seemed to bo the only person on tho team who could make yarduge. Attention should be turned to the ..i.vinv of the Kaluma boys. They pluyed a good, clean gonio, and were good sportsmen. Our boys say that the Kalama team Is the cleanest teum they hnvo pluyed.

Mtckle that a but ter trust exists in Portlund Is sup ported and approved by statements received from some of the state creameries since the commissioner's stutemont was published In the Journal. A letter from S. It. Oldaker, man ager of the Hermiston Creamery Co., In Umatilla county, asserts that the city creameries offer him a price un reasonably lower than their own quotations on butter of their own manufacture, and he predicts that when the competition of country creameries Is overcome by such methods the price paid for butter fut to dairymen will go to the bot tom. The letter from the Hermiston Creumery Co. In part reads: "I note your article in the papers and heartily concur In your opin ion as regards the apparent 'trust' among the big city creameries. 1 am not alone in this as I have Just received a letter from tho Corvallls Creamery and Mr. Kauplsti, tne mnnager, agrees very heartily with you In your whole article. He states to mo that he has time and again tried to have the country creameries got together and make a stand and try for better conditions relative to murkot and getting proper quota tions, etc. "Here I am with this creamery which is making splendid butter, and have butterfat quoted at from 30 to 35 cents per pound and City croamery butter quoted at 31 to 32 cents, and the country creamery but ter, which ordinarily Is absolutely a bettor article, is quoted much lower."

FORTY-EIGHT GOATS ARE KILLED The north bound passenger train Sunday evening ran over and killed 48 head of goats and crippled two. They were owned by Muckle Bros.

The stock guard was imported and the goats were feeding on the right . of way and had strayed on the track at the time of the accident a short distance above Houlton.

After the goata were killed they were the property of the railroad company and Messrs. Muckle made no attempt to save the mohair. AFTER TWO YEARS.
