That Weston Normal school may become a self-supporting Institution and that It may offer the opportun ity to young men and women to work their way through, acquiring an edu cation on their own resources, is the wish and ambition of President R. C. French, and with this utilitarian plan In view he has just purchased (5 acres of excellent timber land 10 miles from Weston where boys may work at woo cutting during vacation, the product to be sold for the benefit of the school. President French was In the city last night on business connected with the normal and to the East Oregon Ian today outlined .one of the most useful and practical plans for educa tional development that has ever bsen proposed In eastern Oregon. It Is the hope of President French to develop the practical, the Indus trial side of life, and with this end In View he believes that the opportunity to work should be given every young man and woman attending school. At the normal school, even now, with Its limited facilities, many young peo pic are working thlr way through, acquiring un education on their own resources. He believes that land should be ac quired where fruits, vegetables, but ter, milk, meats, eggs and practically all of the requirements of the dor mitories may be produced by the labor of students. The purchase of the timber land by himself, Individ ually .while It will offer an opportun ity to many young men to work, yet It Is but a feeble beginning to the widely utilitarian plan which he would Install In the Interest of the normal school. In the center of eastern Oregon, where there are hundreds of young people thirsting for an education which may fit them for the practical work of life, he believes that It Is possible to build up a vast Industrial Institution which will bo self-supporting and furnish a wider scope of ed ucation than nny other Institution In ORCHARD AGAINST ADAMS.

Harry Orchard may be taken to Rathdrum as a wit nesa for the prosecution in tho case of Steve Adams, which is now on trial. It has not been definitely de' elded that Orchard is to take the stand against his former partner In crime, but Indications are that such will be the case. Warden Whitney Is now at Rathdrum, but It is believed that he will return for Orchard after the jury has been secured and the taking of evidence begins.

At the present tlmo flvo outside cottages are used by tho students of tho normal, the dormatorles being filled to overflowing. The cottage which has formerly been occupied by President and Mrs. French Is used as an overflow dining hall and there Is every reason to believe that the school will continue to add to Its en rollment during the next two months, until It will be taxed to the utmost to take care of the students. Terrible Fninile Coming. Sllmn, India, Nov. 2. A more frightful famine than that of 1899 Is a certainty in India this season. Crop failures throughout the coun try ore practically complete and the government Is rushing relief prepara tions. It is estimated that at least 45,000, 000 will be dependent on the govern, ment. In 1899, 11,000,000 were af forded relief at a cost of $76,000,000. Boise Banks in Line. Boise, Nov. 2. Banks here have adopted the clearing house certificate plan of payment. IiiHiirrectlnn Brewing In India. Simla, India, Nov. 2. With a cloud of revolution gathering against British rule in India, the legislative council took drastic action to halt sedition and insurrection. ' It has adopted a bill forbid- ding free speech and empower- Ing the governors to forbid meet- Ings of natives, Lord Mlntn, viceroy, made a speech In support of the bill In which he snld it would be !m- possible to Ignore the wornlng In the riots In LaHore, Plnldl and elsewhere and the Insults to the British flag. Constant attempts are being made he said to tamper with the patriotism of the Indian troops. Through the raising of the assess ment In this county to full valuation another method of raising money hus been opened to ths city and In view of the difficulty experienced In selling the bonds It may prove an opportune blessing. Under the city charter nine mills Is designated as the maximum tax, which the council may Impose with the- pur poses. This limit was set during the time when the assessment was on tt one-fourth valuation. Under the old system the city could derive only about 115,000 per annum from taxa tion even though the maximum levy was used. But under tho present assessment basis there Is practlcnlly no limit t,o the tax the council may Impose. By keeping Inst year's levy In force again tho city would derive four times the revenue It did last year. While It is not probable that the council will take advantage of Its power to raise an undue amount from the city tax, yet the fact that It can Impose whotever levy seems needed Is a source of satisfaction to the city financiers who for weeks havj been wondering how municipal expenses and desired Improvements nro to be paid for. The second holdup took place short ly before midnight, when two masked bandits halted a Corbln Park car on the Traction company's line near Ter minal, They went through tho con ductor's pockets, obtaining $15 and Into the financial condition and his watch, but did not touch the mo torman.

Mr. Pattlson said to the East Ore- gonlan today that no city he had in vestigated for the order of the Wood men of the World had a better finan cial outlook or a more certain and stable foundation than Pendleton and that he would unreservedly rec ommend the purchase of Pendleton bonds with whatever sum of money the order may now have on hand, which will perhaps be from $75,000 $109,000, although Mr. Pattison could not speak with authority as to the amount which would be recom The board of head managers will meet in Denver early next week and Mr. Pattlson will make his favorable report on the investment in Pendle ton city bonds and a bid for a block of the bonds will then be made by the managers.

"The women's suffrage movement In Oregon has suffered In the past because of the popular beliefs that It Is closely as sociated with prohibition," said Mrs. Abrigal Scott Duniway yesterday In an exclusive Interview In the Jour nul. "This is not right. I believa the main reason for the defeat of the woman's suffrage last election was because of the hurrah campaign in- At last definite arrangements have been made for the reopening of the Frazer theater and while the placa will be leased by a stock company there Is a chance that some of the northwest circuit attractions may also be secured. Today the following announcement regarding the present deal .was made by J. R. Dlckaon, one of the owners of the property: "A lease on the opera house has been entered Into by the owners with the Streeter-Bryan Stock company, one of the strongest stock organiza tions that has ever been on the west ern coast. "The theater will not be opaned un til about December 1, owing to va rious renovatiens and Improvements required." The Streeter-Bryan company Is the one now playing in Baker City .and it has been drawing crowdede houses in the small theater opposite the Gelser Grande hotel. The company plays continuously, changing the bill weekly and the prices are low. As to whether or not any of th big attractions will be secures by the company Mr. Dickson d3ei not kno.w, though In the negotiations for th- theater such a policy wss discussed. Though the theatrical season will be well on before the Ftazsr can be re opened It Is believed that many of the big troupes can be brought here should the management so desire. However, It may be that the stock company will prefer to use the house exclusively themselves. Already an additional stairway has been placed at the west end of the gallery and other minor Improve ments are being made by the theater owners. New scenery will be sup plied by the lesees and It Is presum ed a new curtain will be supplied. How long the thoater will remain open will depend doubtless on the patronage afforded the management but it Is understood that the place will be kept open all through the sea son. But whether such Is done or not the playhouse will be gotten Into decent shape for usage and the sea son will not be entirely devoid of en tertainment. DECKER WOKE UP.

Time Is Extended. At the adjourned meeting of the city council last evening It was voted to extend the time for receiving bids on the city bonds until December 4. Between now und that time It Is hoped the financial situation will get Into such' shape that at least a por tion of the bonds may be disposed of. Last night was the time previously set by the council for receiving bids on the bonds under the popular sale planned. But not a bid was present ed and once more it became neces sary to extend the time. Another bid upon the grading work proposed for Washington street was received last night and was found to be lower than the offer recently made by Newport & Son. The new bid was referred to the street com mittee. But five members of the council were present last evening and aside from the above no business was transacted though various subjects were discussed at length by the mem bers present. soda ted themselves with W.

Mayor John Pattison of Colfax who Is In the city today speaks enthus- listlcally of financial conditions in the northwest. Whitman county has Just harvested 12.000,000 bushels of wheat, the largest crop produced In any county on the Pacific coast. As this wheat has been sold for an aver age of almost 70 cents per bushel. It means the distribution of $8,400,000 In that county. With such prosperi ty he ridicules any suggestion of a panic in the northwest. NOVEMBER MOONS IRE GOOD Pendleton merchants and business men who collected yesterday report the largest collections of the fall and a good spirit everywhere over the money situation. Bills mailed out several days ago have been more promptly responded to and more cash has been received by mall on November collections than on any monthly collection of this sea son. This is considered as a true and unfailing index to the actual condi tion among the people. There Is plenty of money among all classes nnd It Is not being hoarded nor held, but is freely paid upon outstanding obligations. It was expected by business men that collections this month would be somewhat slow, not because of nny scarcity of money, but because of the general talk of scarcity in the east and in Portland and the large collections and especially the mall collections, which came in voluntarily, were a pleasant and reassuring surprise.
