"PENDLETON, February 7.—Ben K. Davis states that in the event of a new trial not being granted his fath er by Judge Ellis the case will be ap pealed to the supreme court, and an effort made to have the decision of this court reversed and a new trial ordered. In making the appeal much of the work will be done In Portland by Ben Davis himself, though Attor neys Fee and Raley will still remain in the case. No bond has yet been secured for Davis and since Saturday afternoon the ex-chief deputy has been a pris oner within the county jail. Accord ing to Ben Davis it is not likely that bail will now be secured, as his father does not care to ask his friends to go uopn his bond. New Town in Coos. MARSHFIELD, Ore., February 7 — Major Kinney has platted a new town under the name of Seaport at the con. fluenoe of Coos bay and South Inlet, about two miles from the ocean. A daily boat has been put on between Seaport and other Coos bay points and is doing a rushing business. A contract has already been let for 1,200 feet of concrete sidewalk and a new hotel is in course of construction. FORMALDEHYDE PROVES A FROST GOVERNMENT FORMULAE FOR KILLING RUST RUINS MUCH WHEAT IN UMATILLA. PENDLETON, February 7.—There are several farmers in L'matilla coun ty who are sorry that they adopted the government's method of extermin oting "rust" in wheat, because the ex periment has not proven a success and a great loss has been suffered by the farmers. Formaldehyde is championed by the government as being superior to blue vitroi for "dipping" seed wheat for killing rust germs, and acting on the recommendations from the agicultural department a number of farmers last fall decided to use the muchly praised substitute. Either the chemical has failed to perform its function or the farmers who used it had not been thoroughly instructed how to apply it to seed wheat. At any rate, the chemical has not only exterminated all the "rust" germs, but it has succeeded in killing the wheat itself. Three or four farmers on the reser vation are now busily engaged in re seeding their summer fallow as a re sult of using formalehyde instead of the old fashioned and reliable blue vit roi. One farmer, Link Davis, has been compelled to resow a 500-acre field while other farmers are losers to near ly an equal extent. Two Suits For Divorce. PENDLETON, February 7.—Bessie May Tobin has begun action for di vorce against John Tobin. She says that he married her too soon after di vorcing his first wife. Thomas J. Ennis asks for a divorce from Drusilla E. Ennis. They were married in Grant County in September, 19'04. Ennis charges cruelty. Oregon Anti-Scalping Law Is Upheld. SALEM, Oregon, February 7. —The Supreme Court has sustained the con stitutionality of the anti-scalping law passed by the last legislature. i SPORTS NELSOM-M'GOVERN ARE MATCHED FIGHT FANS OF QUAKER CITY PROMISED A RATTLING GO BETWEEN LIGHTWEIGHTS CHICAGO, February 7.—After con siderably more delays, full, quibblings and nagging than occurred at last sum mer's peace conference, a match has been finally arranged between Battling Nelson and Terry McGovern and a sigh of relief is heard from many directions in consequence. It certainly was a hard struggle for all interested. The mix-up will take place at Phila delphia on March 14, and although it will only be of six rounds' duration, thire is a possibility that puglistic his tory will be made, even in that short length of time. If the once-dreaded Brooklynite bears out his declaration that he is as good as he ever was and wade= into Mr. Nelson with his customary vim, there is liable to be a new claimant for the lightweight honors as a result. Mc- Govern has even gone so far, banking on a favorable outcome of his bout with Nelson a s to plan a meeting with Joe Gans for the lightweight crown. All of which is, of course, exceedingly in teresting to the Durable Dane and his admirers. Both Boys Are Confident. Nelson, however, has done some "de claring" himself. He, like McGovern. expects to win by a knockout, and pre dicts a surprise for those who have heretofore considered him to be a long distance plugger. pure and simple. It should be remembered, also, that the Chicago star is handled by one of the keenest managers in the business — Nolan—and that the latter, in making a match with such a six-round wonder as McGovern, undoubtedly knows what he is about. So it is obviously unwise to jump at hasty conclusions regarding thic fight, as there may be more to It than appears on the surface. LEVY INVADES LOS ANGELES. 'Frisco Fight Promoter is Backed by Two Chicago Sporting Men. LOS ANGELES. Cal, February 7.— The Arcadia Athletic Club is the name of Morris Levy's new fighting organization. This news was given out by Levy and he states that in corporation papers will be signed to day as evidence that he is thinking of doing business very soon. When asked the direct question, whether fights would really be held at Arcadia, Levy replied in the affirmative with the qualification that they might be "closer in," evidently meaning in this city. He would not say whether any local men were to be in the scheme but he said two Chicago men of means were on the list and if the club went through. Eddie Graney would be the referee for all the fights. Travis Will Compete. NEW YORK, February 7.—Walter J Travis, the crack golf player, will be a competitor in the tournament for tha amateur golf championship of Southern Florida, which is to be held at Palm Beach, Fla., next week. Travis won this tournament in 1904, but as he was in Bermuda while it was in progress last year he was not able to defend his title. He started South today, accom. panied by James G. Batterson, of Fox Hills, and Jasper Lynch, of Lakewood. During his stay at Palm Beach, Mr. Travis will be the guest of Charles B. Coroy. RUN DOWN AND NERVOUS. Vinol Restored the Health of Miss Blair, Pres. of Sophomore Club. Mr. Jackson of the Green & Jackson Drug Company, says: "Many people right here in Walla Walla are just in Miss Blair's condition, all run down, hardly able to drag about, don't know what ails them. MISS KOSE BLAIR.' "This condition is probably caused by a cold or cough which is hard to cure, overwork, or too close confine ment to business. Such people need Vinol. We guarantee that it will curi them and build them up or return money whenever it fails, and the fol lowing letter is only one of many showing what Vinol will do." Miss Rose Blair, president Sopho more Club, Kansas City, Mo., writes: "Last spring I was all run down, ner vous and irritable. I lost my appe tite and could not sleep. I tried many medicines without any benefit. Tour cod liver oil preparation, Vinol, worked wonders for me. It was delicious to take and not at all like the greasy co 3 liver oil and emulsions I was used to. Vinol gave me a hearty appetite and restored me to perfect health and strength. I consider Vinol a wonder ful remedy." Vinol cures conditions like this be cause it contains every one of the cur ative medicinal elements found in cod liver oil without a drop of the useless oil to upset the stomach and retard its work, and it strengthens every or gan in the body. We ask every run-down, nervous, debilitated, aged or weak person in Walla Walla, and every person suffer ing from stubborn colds, hanging on coughs or bronchial troubles to try Vinol on our guarantee to return mo ney if It fails. Green & Jackson Drug Company. THE EVENiIMG STATESMAN, WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON. WILL BE THE BIGGEST EVER Thousand of Homeseekers Coming West This Year. BIG TRAVEL TO WEST IS EXPECTED Railroad Companies Are Preparing to Handle Large Crowds From the Eastern States. A bigger travel to the Northwest than during the Lewis and Clark ex position year is predicted for the sum mer by W. A. Cox, general manager of the Chicago & Northwestern rail way, who has just returned from a business trip to Chicago, New York. Philadelphia, Boston, Indianapolis and other points, says the Portland Journal "lf the railroads put in summer rates that are now under consideration in the east. I positively believe the travel to this coast will equal, if it does not exceed that of last year in Portland,'' is the way Mr. Cox puts it. This statement, coming seriously from one of the bestinformed railroad traf fic men. fresh from the middle west and eastern territory, from which Oregon expects to draw investors, set. letrs and tourists this year, will sur prise most people. It is said that few realize the immense travel that will come from the east to the Pacific coast this year. Mr. Cox closely observed indications that came within his view on the trip east, and his opinion is based on the personal knowledge of what he saw and heard. He says the people who came to the Lewis and Clark fair have done an immense amount of effective advertising for the Pacific Northwest, and not only are many of the same people coming back, but thousands of others whom they have told of the re sources, opportunities and general favorable conditions here. Mr. Cox said: The Exposition Did It. "The Lewis and Clark exposition did more for the Pacific Coast than any other exposition has ever done for a country. The Louisiana Purchase Ex. position was a great thing for St. Louis. But it chiefly benefited the city of St. Louis. The conditions around that city did not allow extensive results favorable to the country, and it was already developed. Oregon has all the wealth and resources of eastern states. The thing lacking is popula tion and capital. The people of the east are at last seeing this fact. The railroads are realizing that the Pacific Xorthwest is really the only great region remaining for exploitation. They are now giving it serious con sideration." Mr. Cox added that announcements might soon be looked for from the railroads giving low summer rates for round trips to the Pacific Coast, and that there would be an immense travel besides the colonist and tourist travel to this coast. There will be large con ventions in California and a large pro. portion of the delegates will arranga their trip to come or return via the northern routes. They want to see the country that has been so mueh talked about in connection with the fair. Old men who have boys are in vestigating here for the younger gen eration. He met men of wealth who have no plans of their own for develop ment but who are convinced that Oregon is the place for their sons. Railroad Advertising Effective. Eastern people who have been ac customed to traveling around are be ginning to realize that there is some thing to see in this wonderland—the Pacific Northwest. The enormous volume of railroad advertising that has been done and is still being carried on exploiting this part of the United | States is bringing actual results as all good advertising will. Men with capital to invest are seeking the open ings that are now known to exist here for making large profits on invest ments. Regarding the building into this ter ritory by the Northwestern line. Mr. Cox says his officials have nothing to say, but adds that the line he repres ents is going farther than usual in the effort properly to care for the in crease in the North Pacifis coast traffic and that the officials are diligently seeking detailed information as to the possibilities and natural advantages. Mr. Cox has been instructed by his people to obtain promptly all statis tiscal matter possible with regard to crops and conditions, including wheat, barley, flax, hops, sugar, beets, live stocks, poultry, and dairying, and min ing, fisheries, climate, etc., all for In corporation in a new booklet of exten sive character on "The Pacific North west." j MAGAZINES \ The February Century is called the nidwinter fiction number —it is also an j issue of distinctive Keats interest, and i number beautiful in its color and tint ■ages, including as it does another of Anna Whelan Bett's quaintly charmins pictures of life fifty years ago.

Madame de Pastourelle. promising to prove one of the most appean.ig and charming characters Mrs. Ward has drawn, is the dominant figure in the February chapters of "Fenwick's Career." There will be keen interest, too, in the first chapters of the new novel by Dr. S. Weir Mitchell, "A Diplomatic Adventure," which opens in Paris with a mystery and promise of i duel which may or may not unravel the mystery. Elliott Fowler, whose stories have a happy way of dealing with questions of the day, has a spec ially lively and timely tale in "The Bride That Went Astray," in which the denouncement is quite as much of a surprise to the characters as to the reader. There are half a dozen other | short stories, including "The Intellect- I ual Miss Lamb," by Florence Morse Kingsley, author of ''The Transfigura tion of Miss Philura," "The Singular Miss Smith," and "Titus." A Perfect Leaf. The teacher of a large class in one of the New York schools once said to the pupils who were leaving for the sum mer: "I want each of you to search for a perfect leaf and bring it to me when school reopens. Remember, it must be perfect—every tooth right, not to speak of mold or blight or discoloration, not a vein broken." They searched faith fully, but none found a perfect leaf, though they learned a great deal about leaves while they examined them thus carefully.—New York Times. The Hainan Voice. One's surprise at the fact that no two* persons' voices are perfectly alike ceases when one is informed by an au thority on the subject that, though there are only nine perfect tones in the human voice, there is the astounding number of 17,502,186,044,415 different sounds. Of these fourteen direct mus cles produce 16,383, and thirty Indi rect muscles produce 173,741,823, while all in co-operation produce the total given above. A Generou Actor. Sir Henry Irving one day met a bro ken down actor in the Strand. "I nev er see you at the theater now," said Sir Henry. The other murmured some thing about his ill luck and shabbiness. "Oh, nonsense; you come tomorrow and give your name at the box office!" He went, to find two tickets awaiting hint, with a fifty dollar note. A Domestic Dlhcuhnloii.

"I've been giving you the least I ever gave to any man!" No Doubt. Jock—What seemed to be the hard est thing to you in learning to ride the bicycle? Tom—The ground. RUSSIAN PROVERBS.

When '"The Last Leaf" was publish ed by Oliver Wendell Holmes a critic attacked it savagely and cruelly. Dr. Holmes, though importuned by friends, did nothing in revenge. He waited for time to avenge him, which time did liberally. The critic fell upon evil days and ended his existence with sui cide. The only morceau of personal revenge which the good doctor allowed himself was to cut out the paragraph about his enemy's career and paste It In his scrapbook on the same page which contained the original criticism and the announcements of the succes sive editions of the poem. This was a mild revenge, but even this was un worthy of Dr. Holmes.
