EIGHT PAGES. DAILY EAST OREGOMAN, PENDLETON, OREGON. MONDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1907. PAGE SEVEN. AMONG THE N OF INLAND PiilenH for Tula 1'ulU LuihIh. A lotter received by Register Roberts of the mate land board from the general land commissioner's of fice contains good news for the Bot tlers of the Twin Falls tract In that patent No. 2, covering 34,500 acres of Carey act lands, which has been held up for nearly a year on accqunt of" a protest, will bo Issued to the state upon receipt of a favorablo re port by the general land office from the special Inspector appointed to In vestigate relative to whether a tract of about 40 acres should be classed as mineral or agricultural land. The state land board will then be In a position to Issue patents to set tlers who for the most part have made final proof and are now await ing a decision from the general land office, In order to get clear title from the state. Of the 220,000 acres susceptible of Irrigation In the Twin Falls tract, patent has been Issued to only 30,000 acres. Action has not yet been taken on the applications made in lists No. 3 for 40,000 acres, and No. 4 for 45, 000 acres. noise Capital News. An Elusive PrlHOncr. Matthew Klzer, noted for h!s burg lary and Jail burning escapades In Long Creek, still upholds his title to the championship of modern "Artful Dodger." After having pleaded guilty to larceny from a store and being sentenced to a two-year term In the pen, he slipped out almost from un der the very eyes of the sheriff Sun day evening and made a grand play for . a got-a-way. He was bringing !n wood when he darted away In the gathering twilight and hid in the haybln of P. F. Chand lers barn. A general search was In progress when T. J. Cozad called at tention to the barn. Mulcare and Sheriff Ambrose entered the barn and begun the search, when the lit tle stowaway was discovered under a pile of hay. He was taken into cus tody and the next morning Sheriff Anibroso started for Salem with him. If he does not throw the train off the tr.ick or steal the cow-catcher en route he will land in the pen, which he will soon sot on needles and plus. Orant County News. runner Boise Man Killed. Hugh Fulton, deputy sheriff of Ada rounty under Sheriff Moseley from 1!I04 to 1906, and a guard in GEORGIA'S NEW PROHIBITION Will us PROVISIONS Atlanta, Ga., Doc. 30. Only ono day more remains before Georgia will become on arid desert, with never an oasis in which the thirsty Cracker may relieve his thirst from the flow ing bowl. The state prohibition law will go Into effect when the church bolls ring in the new year. Moan while, convivial ones are endeavoring to save the saloonkeepers from loss by making a brave attempt to dispose of all the wet goods in sight, and It Is likely that tSOH will be welcomed by thousands of Georgians In a con dition popularly described as "sous ed." Already the Inst groat debauch h;is commenced and will continue without intermission until the saloons close their doors for the last time to morrow night. Present Indications are that prac tically all the liquor dealers will ob servij the provisions of the law to the lotter and will not attempt to con tinue In business after tomorrow. Nearly all of them have succeeded In disposing of their stocks and only odds and ends of wet goods are now loft to satisfy the demands of the thirsty. That the state will be thoroughly dry, however, Is evidenced by a num ber of mysterious barrels and cases received at freight offices all over the state of late, and which bear wit ness to th0 activity of the liquor Job bers and distillers of other states, who have recently flooded Georgia with their advertising literature, offering whiskey direct to consumers. The senate bill prohibiting the manufacture or sale of alcoholic bov crages In Georgia after January 1, 1908, was passed by the lower house by a vote of 139 to 39 on July 30 last, and was signed by Governor Hoke Smith on August 6. The signing of the measure was the occasion of a great demonstration by the religious poople of the state, who thronged the capltol, singing "Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow." The prohibition bill's number was 23. The measure was originally known as senate bill No. 1. It was the -23d bill to reach the governor for approval, however, and he gave it the "skldoo" number, which was very significant, from the standpoint of the liquor dealers. By signing the bill Governor Smith deprived himself of a handsome Income from the bar of the Piedmont hotel. The bill' will cause a loss of reve nue, state and municipal, of more than J 1,000,000 a year. Under Its terms no whiskey, wine, beer, or, In fact, anything that will cause Intox catlon, can be legally sold in Georgia after tomorrow. Provision is made whereby licensed druggists may sell pure alcohol for medical purposes only upon the written prescription of a regularly practicing physician and under conditions closely specified. Nothing In the act, however, can b. construe! as to prevent wholesale EXCHANGES THE EMPIRE the Idaho stato penitentiary under Warden Arney, was shot and killed last Tuesday near Goldflold, says the Boise Capitul News. The Goldfleld Tribune of Wednesday gives the fol lowln? account of the tragedy: Hugh Fulton was shot and almost Instantly killed in a fight at Silver Bow yesterday morning. Ed Jon son was the man who sent him over the range! Meager details of the oc currence that caused the tragedy only were in evidence last nigh:; b from thoso stringers It appears that occurred over some clulm jumping In which the participants of the ai fair took opposite views. Johnso was armed with a rifle, when he met Fulton and warned him not to pu his gun. When Fulton reached for it the rifle cracked twice, and minutes later Fulton had breathed his last. N. P. Cuts Off Trains. It la reported that 15 freight train crews on the Pacific division of the Northern Pacific have been laid off. On Tuesday the railroad reduced its train service by discontinuing eight passenger trains on the Pacific dl vision, says the Yakima Republic. All trains so discontinued with one exception were doing but a small lo cal business over short runs. Their crews will go back to freight train service. Following are the discon tinuances: Train No. 18, leaving Tacoma at 7:55 a. m., known as the Kana.tkat accommodtlon train, has been taken off and the train running opposite Is also discontinued. The Puget Sound Limited, running between Portland and Seattle and known as Nos. 13 and 14 have been pulled off. The Grays Harbor express, Nos. 9 and 10, have also been d'scontlnued. Nos. 39 and 40, passenger trains on" the South Bend branch, have been taken off. Snllsfm-tory Insurance Settlennent The Insurance adjuster was In the city Friday of last week, and arrang ed the matter of the adjustment of the Insurance on the Union school bu'lding satisfactorily to the direc tors, It being understood that the dis trict was allowed the sum of 13,100 and a fraction for the damage done. It is understood that the work of re pairing the building permanently will be deferred until spring. Pnlon Re publican. nidf-glsts from soiling alcohol In wholesale quantities to regular licens ed retail druggists or to public or charity hospitals, or to medical or pharmaceutical colleges. Neither docs the bill prohibit the sale by druggists of wood or denatured alco hol for artistic, scientific or mechan ical purposes, or grain alcohol for I aolcrlnloglsts who are nctuilly on Wz in that clnss of work for scien tific purposes only. Under the provisions of the law, prescriptions for alcohol must be filled upon tho day In which thev are dated or on tho fallowing day. Within 10 days afterward tho drug gist Is required to file the prescrip tions with the ordinary of the county, who will make a public record of them, open to Inspection by anyone at arty time. No druls! who is al so a practicing physician will be al lowed to fill his own prescriptions for alcohol, nor shall they be filled ot any drug store In which the phy sician Is financially Interested. No prescription may be re-filled, nor any more than one pint of alcohol be sold on any one prescription. The deliv ery of alcohol under prescription may be made only directly to the person for whom It Is Issued or to the phy sician, or In case, of a minor, to the parent or guardian, or In case of a married woman, to her husband. These provisions are expected to pre vent the ale of alcohol or any bev erage containing alcohol ln large quantities, by druggists, a business which has been carried on largely in Maine, Kansas and other prohibition states. , A feature of tho law which has caused protests from the religious and reform element which was largely re sponsible for securing the passage of the bill makes It unlawful to admin ister wine at the communion table. This protest Is as follows: "After January 1, 1908, every min ister who hands sacramental wine to his members will subject himself to as many indictments as there are members. Every deacon will also be subject to similar prosecution. We petition the general assembly to make such amendments to the law as will allow the Christian people of tho stato to worship God according to the dictates of their, own conscience." SEIZED $14,000 IN JOINT. Portland Polloo Raided , Lottery Games With Good Result. The Porlnnd Oregonlan says of the seizure of $14,000 of Chinese lottery funds In that city: As a result of a Chinese lottery raid made late yesterday afternoon, the most successful every carried out In Portland, the state of Oregon may be the gainer to the extent of more than $14,000. The raid was on the establishment of Blng Kee. at 84 Socond street, and the exact amount of coin and currency seized was $10,- 166.90, besides $4445.09 of exchange on Hongkong bank. ,The police have refused to return the money, and as they also hold the tickets and all the other parapher nalia used in the lottery games, it Is probablo that a suit fill be instituted In behalf of tho state to confiscate the money. Not only may this raid result in fattening the state treasury, but it is believed by the police that they have administered the death blow to Chi nese gambling In Portland. It is as serted that Blng Kee, who was arrest ed and released on ball, is the real boss gambler among the orientals of Portland. Of all the games carried on in de fiance of law and secretly patron ized by thousands, it is said that Bing Kee is the backer. If he 'can be con victed and the $14,000 forfeited, the police say that no one else will have tho temerity to advance mdney to carry on the games for a long time to come. AFTER ARGENTINE TRADE. Germany Landing Bis; Percentage of South American Commerce. Buenos Ayres, Argentina, Dec. 28. That the United States is not tak ing proper precautions to protect its commerce and trade with South Am erica and especially with the rich republic of Argentina Is the declara tion of practically all the American residents of Buenos Ayres, who have become alarmed by the recent action of congress In granting a subvention of $5000 gold annually to a German syndicate for promoting commerce between Germany and Argentina. Al ready Germany has a strong hold on the Argentine trade and threatens soon to supplant both Great Britain and the United States. With proper effort, It is admitted by all that the United States might supply this country with Its millions of dollars worth of machinery, agricultural im plements and othec importations, which now come principally from Europe. The total value of merchandise im ported during the year will be near ly $275,000,000 gold. Of this total, Great Britain has supplied about 35 per cent, the United States 15 per cent, Germany 14 per cent, France 10 per cent, Italy 9 per cent, and Belgium, Spain and Brazil smaller proportions. Germany has made a larger gain In the percentage of ex ports to Argentina than any other country, as has been the case for many years, and, In the value of Im ports from Argentina, stands next to Great Britain. With the adoption of modern methods In agriculture, Ar gentina will soon become one of the greatest pastoral countries of the world and the amount of Us imports will steadily rise In volume. Euro pean manufacturers understand this and are making strenuous efforts to obtain a portion of this rich trade, while the United States Is doing prac tically nothing and barely holding its own against the onslaughts of the English and German commercial in vaders. SHOT DEER, LOST JOB. Forest Itangor Killed Animal, Hid Carcass In River, But Is Convict ed. Compelled to pay a fine of $50 and costs, to surrender his position as chief ranger In the forest reserve, and be mustered out without honors, was the fate of E. M. Clarke, who was found guilty of killing a deer out of season, says a Leylston Item. uiarae was inea at stites last week before Justice Roberts, on a complaint filed . by Game Warden Harbaugh. The forest reserve rang er, who secured his position after a civil service examination, was found guilty of killing a deer on July 7 last, and then hiding its carcass In the Salmon river. Mr. Harbaugh has been working on this case for several months, the first Information being given by an In dian who complained because, the Indians were prosecuted for game violations, while the whites were al lowed to go free. The Indian told his' story In court. He and Clarke were riding along a trail In the Bitter Root reserve when a large-eyed fawn crossed the trail followed closely by the mother. Clarke leveled h's rifle and shot the doe to death, and then threw the fleer in the river, knowing that he dare not take. the animal to the camp. Three days later the carcass floated down the river, and the Indian was accused of killing the deer. He nam ed the man who shot the deer, and furnished Information which resulted In conviction. .,, KNOWS HOW TO FARM. Produces More Than Ho Paid for tlw Farm In One Year. R. W. Dougherty, who lives about a mile west of this city, Is one of our most successful and up-to-date farm ers, says the Freewater Times. He has 15 acres of land In cultivation and this year the gross cash receipts amounted to $2,867.20 besides a large quantity of potatoes and fruit yet un sold, which will bring the cash re turns up near the $3000 mark and still have an ample .supply of vege tables and ' fruit left for home con sumption. Mr. Dougherty bought, this small tract of land four years ago, paying jiSOO for It. These facts will enable the Intending buyers who come here and find land selling from $300 to $1000 per acre to understand that property that will In one year pro duce almost as much as the first cost of the land, Is cheap rather than dear. Mr. Dougherty's success Is paralled by scores of other farmers In tho valley and nearly every week columns of the Times contains some account of the success of our Intelligent farm ers- and this paper never overlooks an opportunity to boost for Freewater and the Walla Walla valley farmers, who in turn are all our fast friends.
