Provisions of the Act Were Not Legally Complied With When Question Was Submitted. PENDLETON. Feb. 9.—Freewater is to remain an open town and the citi zens of that place who have a thirst for something stronger than chasers will have the privilege to appease their appetites for some time to come. Hereafter it will be just as lawful to conduct a saloon in Freewater as in Pilot Rock, for yesterday the case of the State against George Ireland was settled in favor of the defendant and the bottom virtually knocked out of the local option law. The defense openly admitted the alleged violation of the prohibition law. which is supposed to obtain in the North Milton precinct, had been committed for the reason that the validity of the law was a matter of doubt and therefore subject to a test. Evidently, the law in that district neither holds water nor chasers. The case had been argued before Judge W. R. Ellis the past two days and only technical points were at is sue. After hearing the arguments yesterday at noon Judge Ellis dis missed the jury until 5 o'clock, when they appeared for further instructions. John McCourt, attorney for the de fense, had submitted a motion to the court to dismiss the charge and acquit the defendant. Judge Ellis deliber ating over the case a few hours, sus tained the motion and instructed the jury to return a verdict #f acquittal on the grounds that the requirements of the local option law had not been complied with and that the petition to sub-divide the North Milton district in which Freewater is located, had not been properly and fully recorded.

Entirely unas sisted he rendered a varied program, in which he exhibited his ability to portray the different shades of feel ing, from the tragedy of Shakespeare to the lightest comedy.

Tacoma Senator Steals March on Ankeny on Surveyor Generalship in This State. Senator Foster is after Charley Hopkins' scalp and his efforts may result in the Spokane man's ac tions in the recent senatorial fight in this state being the subject of investi gation by the authorities at the na tional capital. According to the tele graphic story' that comes from Wash ington City Senator Foster has stated that he had called the president's at tention to the fact that United States Marshal Hopkins had been very active during the late senatorial campaign in the interest of Charles Sweeny. Mr. Foster says there will be an investi gation of Hopkins' acts during the campaign, and intimates that if it is shown he was unduly active he will probably be dismissed for violating the instructions of the president. Steals March on Ankeny. The president yesterday sent to the senate the recommendation of E. P. Kingsbury to be surveyor general of Washington. Air. Kingsbury was originally pa pointed on Senator Foster's endorse ment and on his signed request was reappointed. Senator Ankeny charges that Foster broke faith in recommending Kings bury this time, claiming that there had been an agreement that no one should be endorsed for this office until they should confer and each make known his position to the other. An keny did not know that Foster en dorsed Kingsbury and himself re frained from making any recommen dations because of the agreement. He personally preferred and would have endorsed J. R. Welty. Ankeny's friends say that Foster gave out the impression that he pre ferred Welty to Kingsbury and so fooled Ankeny. Ankeny may not con sent to allow Kingsbury to be con firmed. SAVED IN ENVY; DIED A MISER. L. P. Fletcher Sought Wealth—Wife Starved to Death. NORWICH. N. V.. Feb. 9—A half century ago when Ivoring F. Fletcher was married, he became aggrieved at what he thought a snobbish attitude on the part of some of his relatives who had been more successful finan cially. "I can save as well as you can." he said, and thenceforth he lived as an other man. Estranging himself from all relatives except his wife, he set out to accumu late sufficient wealth to some day sneer at his relatives. Liberal as he had been as a suitor, Fletcher adopted miserly tactics as a husband. The diet on which he and his wife lived for forty years is said to have been bread and milk and potatoes day after day. When his wife would complain, Fletcher would reiterate his vow to save. t Ten years ago Fletcher's wife died and the residents of Norwich pro nounced the woman's death due to starvation. The other day Fletcher died him self and the same relatives whom he sought to surpass in financial posses sion came here to look after his es tate. In an old trunk was found $12.- -000 in cash and gilt-edge securities. • PAGE FIVE Astride Saddles for Ladies. Men's and Boys' Saddles. Big line from which to make a selection.
