At ml I ton he will finish th work of collecting the exhibit of pro ducts peculiar to that famous Irrigat ed district, and arrange for forward ing the results to Portland. Since he was last In Pendleton Dr Leroy has visited the following points which have taken actively to the work of contributing to the exhibit In the Portland union depot: Albany, Salem, Corvallls, Philomath, Toledo, Yaqulna Bay, Newport, Forest Grove, McMlnn- vllle, Falrview, Gresham, Cascade Locks, Hood River. The result of this trip and those preceding It Is that Dr. Leroy declares there Is now on exhibition In the union depot the finest collection of Oregon products ever gotten together In the state, without any exception whatever. In the doctor's own language, "It Is sim- rply magnificent." Dr. Leroy spent four days at Hood River Inspecting ths beautiful ex hibit of Hood River district products, but In spite of his utmost endeavors he was able to secure but II boxes of selected fruits for the Portland ex hibit What he did secure, however, is very fine, and is an assorted lot comprising every variety. The rea son ha did not get mora was because the Hood River business men and other citisens realise ths value of ad vertlsing and simply bought up and shipped through to St. Louis, for tne World's fair, all but It boxes which Mr. Leroy was ao fortunate as to get hold of. Th Information bureau has th name and places of location of II families from the Bast which havs found homes in Oregon through the direct Influence of the bureau during the past summer. It Is altogether likely that at least an equal number have 1 scale in the state through th Influence of the bureau of whom th bureau has no direct knowledge, or perhaps none at ail.

'It Is more than probable," re marked Robert Burns, agent for the O. R. V N. company at Walla Walla, that Walla Walla county next year will appropriate money to assist the fair and racing association. There Is a state law In Washington that pro- vlds that after a fair has been In succosfiul operation fur two years, the commissioners may render assistance. "I believe that Walla Walla coun ty will put up 16000. With that amount of money backing the enter prise It should be one of the greatest successes of the kind ever known in the history of Walla Walla county. "The race meet and fair Just closed was a success. I speak from th standpoint of an outsider. Ths crowds were large and there Is no doubt but that the association cam out with money ahead. Heavy purses were hung, but the entry money alone was almost enough to pay for the prises. Few of ths men with horses came out with much money ahead." Mr. Burns came down to Pendle ton last night on business. He win return home tomorrow. Walla Walla Perjurer Guilty. Walla Walla, Oct 17. John Adam .
