This city stands an excellent chance of being entirely ignorexl by the Atlantic tTleet when It visits the north Pacific coast. Belying upon the fact that Port land Is one of the largostjports on the coast, the Hose carnival committee failed :to send 'the navy department a special Invitation asking that the ves sels lie aent here and a,s a result the program of the fleet's visit was made up without Portland on the Itinerary- Today Bear Admiral Plllsbury said: "No Invitation has come to us asking that any of the ships be sent to Port land during the Bose carnival or at any other time.

Did Tom Johnson, a laborer for Haslngs Bros., find 11100 In an old building they were, moving from the end end of town? According to a tale that Is told, Johnson made such a find and substance Is lent to the story by the fact that the gentleman in question l;as had much money to spend of late. While moving the old Jacobs house opposite the Catholic church Johnson Is said o have found $1100 In gold under the place. Whether such is true or not is a point upon which Main street gosslpers differ. But whether true or not, the fact remains that Johnson has been flush of late and his plunging has "attracted wide atten tion during the past few days. Of late Johnson Is said to have had money to burn and that he burned it Is evidenced by the details of his ex ploits. At one fell pass he Is declar ed to have bought 20 bottles of cham pagne In succession at $5 per, a clip that is followed by few In this modest town. This and other things that Johnson has done of late have given him a reputation as a spender and in cidentally he has gotten himself talk ed about almost as much as though he were In politics.'

Royce, a (farmer from south Boise, and his 6-year-old son myster iously disappeared tram KeCammea last Thursday, while the old gentle man was negotiating for the purchase of ome land, says a Pocatello Item. He ias a guest at a McCammon hotel two days and displayed a considera ble sam of money. Thursday he and the boy left the hotel to look at a piece of land on the edge of town and nothing has been seen of them since that time Foul play Is suspected. Posses and searching parties have been hunting for three days, and to day blood hounds from the state pen itentiary were brought up but failed to pick up the scent.

The Walla Walla statesman says of the work of completing the Celilo ca nal, to which work Congressman W, R. Ellis is now devoting his best ef forts: After a great amount of preliminary work, revising plans of the govern ment canal between The Dalles and Celilo, have been completed and for warded to Washington for approval, says the Statesman. Government engineers in charge of this important work have assurances that the revised plans will he Immedi ately taken up by the government au thorities and If approved, a substantial appropriation for continuing the work will bo made. The Celilo canal is the only really important work to be done in order to open up a channel from Lewlston to the sea, and It is hoped that the re vised plans will be approved and the necessary appropriation made. Within the past year numerous ob structions to navigation In both the Columbia and Snake rivers have been removed by government dredges and the work is to be continued with un abated energy. The rapid development of a vast area uf country tributary to the Co lumbia an dSnake rivers, with the In creased traffic incldeltal to such devei opment, makes It Imperative that an open channel to the sea he construct ed as quickly as possible. E. B. Eblln of Kentucky Is now in Grant county trying to buy 8000 head or range horses for shipment to east ern markets, but so far has been un able to make any extensive purchases. He hal bought 1000 head of aged horses from W. W. Brown of Paulina, Crook county, the man who gave $10, 000 for the erection of Brown hall, the boys' dormitory of Pendleton academy, but he has been unable to make any further purchases on ac count of the low prices offered. He has been on a deal for 4000 head of horses in the Izee district In Grant county but the owners are holding for good prices and he will have to pay more than he offers If he gets them. Mr. Eblin says that the demand for horses In the eastern and southern states Is unprecedented and he will ship out every hoof he can buy In the northwest. He also says that the class of horses raised In Oregon has been To manage 1,100,000 acres of range land and to see that It is equitably distributed among the sheep and cat tlemen of eastern Oregon, is the task which falls to Henry Ireland, super visor of the eastern division of the Blue mountain forest reserve who Is now here. f With him this year Mr. Ireland will have a force of 14 rangers whose duty it will be to patrol the reserve and ta see that the regulations of the fores try bureau are complied with. With that force of men he says that better service can be rendered than was given Inst year, for his crew will be bota larger and better than in the past. DM reason for this Is the fact that tha fear of hard times has tended to drive good men Into the government service where they may find Jobs that are sure and steady though the salaries are small. WT1 For 11 years Supervisor Ireland ha been In the forestry service and dur ing that time he has advanced from a ranger drawing a salary of $50 per month, to supervisor of a great re serve. He entered the service In 1897 when the forestry service was conducted with the department of the Interior and .when Blnger Herman was commissioner general of the land office. He says that the separation of the forestry bureau from the interior de partment was hailed with Joy by those 111 the service. At present the headquarters for the eastern division Is . at Sumpter which town lies close to the reesrve. How ever. It Is off the main line and be cause of its Isolation is objected to by sheepmen generally. However. Mr. Ireland saVs no change In headquar ters can be made this year. FRANK FRAZIER INJURED.

Early Indi cations following the convening of the New York state republican convention at Carnegie hall today pointed to a serious hitch In the program of the followers of Hughes to have the dele gates to the national convention In Chicago pledged to vote for the nomi nation of the Empire state executive. At a caucus of delegates last night It was decided to vote against any resolution Indorsing the governor for nomination. This action, however, was merely formal, states William Ward, national committeeman, and no fight will be made In the convention. The Hughes delegates still declare that they wlH secure his Indorsement.
