Dr. X. ;. liliiKx'k, the Pioneer Oihmi River Worker of Wnlla Walla, Note t'oiiiimmlahlo Increase .of Interest In Subject Future Pro, perity of Northwest Dermis l'on Making River Xavlgable. A correspondent at Walla Walla ays of the growing Interest in the open river movement throughout the northwest as noted by Dr. X. O. Bla lock. the pioneer worker of Walla Wnlla: Dr. N. G. Blalock and Professor John Lyman of Whitman college, who have been on a tr'p of education In connection with the rivers and har bors Improvement campaign, return ed yesterday with optimistic reports of the work. "Twenty years ago when I under took to advocate an open river prop osition I was met with silent uncon cern from the people," said Dr. Bla lock. 'The project then was consid ered visionary in the extreme. Since then possibilities of' open river have begun to" appeal to all the people of the state. Now It U surprising how eager they are to enter Into any dis cussion, of the subject. This same change Is noted by Captain Gray of Pasco, himself a life-long advocate of the open river, who Is affiliated with me In the work. "I sent letters "today to our con gressmen and senators urging them to do all they could to help secure the passage of the rivers and harbors appropriation bill which will be In troduced In congress within a few days. I told them that If I had judg ed sentiment of the state aright they would make a great political mistake If they did not favor the bill. This measure will follow the general sug' gestlon of the recent rivers and har bors congress, and will call for the appropriation of $500,000,000 for improvements. Will Moot With Approval. "This bill will, undoubtedly com mand the friendship of many con gressmen, for the reason that almost every one of them has a constituen cy that would benefit by some pro vision of the bill Of course, this Is an unfavorable time to secure ade quate attention to the measure, but I believe that when It comes up for consideration It will make such a strong appeal to the people of the country that congress will not dare to sidetrack It, "It Is not the intention of the rivers and harbors congress to allow the money appropriated to be spent foolishly. It Is their plan to have, say, four commissions appointed to look after the various interests of the country'. These commissions will In quire minutely Into the needs of their particular district, and then in a gen eral conference the share of each commission will be determined." sound In March and will make an ex amination of the meteorite. The me. teorite Is a monolith four fort wide, six feet high and 10 feet long, and consists of the meteorite Iron, accord ing to Mr. Herrold, that when once seen can never be mistaken. He say the meteorite was probably three times Its present size when It fell, and he Is convinced from observations made on the spot, that It fell at least 2000 years ago. and probably 2500. "The meteorite Is lying on a hog back. A little creek that now flows through the forest close by has been fromed since and has been flowing down Its bed for untold ages. The big hole made In the earth by the mighty I in pit ct of the monolith, as It was I hurled by the power of gravity, has all been healed by the erosion of cen turies of rainfall, leaving the meteor ite, which was originally half burled, lying almost on top of the ground." A scrap iron man of the city has made Herrold an offer for the mete orite, providing, he will deliver it. This Is where the shoe ranches, as. according to letters Herrold has re ceived from museums, It will take a great amount of money to get It out of the foothills. THE OATI.OW COUXTHY. OFFERED $2000 FOR METEORITE Timber Cruiser Who Found Valuable Curiosity Receives Fancy Offer. H. G. Herrold, the timber cruiser of Tacoma, who last fall discovered a "meteorite In the foothills of the Baker mountains In Whatcom county, and who has been corresponding with the Smithsonian institute and several other museums of the country relative to the sale of the curiosity, has re ceived an offer of $2000 for It, states a Tacoma report. Mr. Herrold does not at present care to say what museilin has made him the offer for the celestial visitant, but the representative will be on the 1 IW m i men DO YOU GET UP WITH A I AW BACK?

There has been lots of ndvert slng of Harney valley the last few years, according to a dispatch from Burns. but some of the other large valleys In the southern part of the county have never been mentioned. one of the largest Is Catlow valley. which Is 35 miles long by 15 miles wide. The land Is a rich sandy loam, covered with large sage brush. The principal creeks are Roaring Spring, Home and Rock. Most of the land on the creek bottoms is held by the large stock men, but the sage brush land Is still In the hands of the gov ernment. Three of the eastern Oregon sur veys to California were surveyed through Catlow valley last year, and there is good prospect of this feeder being built when the main line is completed across the state. The road leaves the main line at the Narrows, in Harney valley. Near Roaring Springs creek would be a fine location for a townsite. as good water power could be developed there and the town would be the distributing point for part of Harney and for southeast ern Lake county. The valley has not been developed in an agricultural way, but the Tele gram correspondent has seen fine grain and garden truck growing at the Roaring Springs ranch, while at the Home Creek ranch fine shade trees and fruit trees were making as nice growth as could.be wished. The prospect Is excellent for strlk ing artesian water In this valley, as a Tew miles south flowing wells have been struck at 35 to 100 feet deep, Cnder the land laws a person can take 320 acres, and with artesian water, a claimant would find no trouble prov ing up on desert land. Real estate men and locators have not been lo eating people In this part of Harney county, as It U too far from Burns, being 80 miles south. There is no place In Harney county that offers better inducements to the homeseeker than Catlow valley as it on the railroad survey and has good land. It is about 60 miles from the Peblow mining district, which is being developed. Special Announcement Regarding the National Fure Food and Drug Law.

Baker City JlcraW Says HlllHideti In Baker County Will Soon Produce Excellent Wheat. Since the Herald gave publicity to the locating of claims on Virtue flat by men front Washington state who are familiar with dry farming and stated they exercised no hesitation 'n filing on the land as soon almost as they saw It, others have been heard from. Several Inquiries have reached this office directly and Indirectly, asking If there Is much land on the foothills that can be homesteader!, says the Baker City Herald, An effort Is to be, Tnade. shortly to advertise the dry lands of Raker county In a practical manner. Thl idea was conceived by members of the Commercial organizations, and It is a good one. Lat year many ex cellent products were raised from the dry lands and In some Instances pho tographs were procured. It sug gested that a folder -be made giving these photographs of the dry land products, stating that they were raised, and attached to the folder shall be an affidavit as to the truth of the statement The latter feature Is a good one, for in the zeal and enthusiasm to por tray a country's richness and fertility It Is not uncommon for circulars Is sued to go a trifle beyond stubborn facts. With the affidavit of several leading citizens accompanying there can be no doubting tit a absolute truth of the statements, and more men will be attracted that way than In any other. Even if no further advertising was done Baker county will have a steady stream of Inquiries relative to her dry lands for they are now before the public. This May Interest Yon.

Secretary Bonaparte Saya This Is Only Effective Method of PunlHhlng Trusts. After having declined to express his views on the recent measure sent to congress by President Roosevelt and also on the speech delivered by Governor Hughes of. New York. United States Attorney General Chas. J. Bonaparte dictated the following for the New York Sun.: "There Is one matter, however, about -which I can speak with knowl edge. If great clusters of corpora tions, such as the Standard Oil com pany, the tobacco truBt, the powder trust and our well known railroad systems, are not to be punished by fines Imposed on convicted corpora tions, this means that In 99 cases out of 100 they will not be punished at all. It is often possible to obtain legal proof on which to convict the corporation when It will be altogether Impossible to obtain evidence to sat isfy a Jury against one of Its super ior officers. This statement may seem a little strange, to persons In experienced In criminal law, but a lawyer who has to enforce such stat utes as the anti-trust laws will soon learn its truth." , NO ONE EXPECTS IT.
