In striking contrast with the dull neas that has marked the police court there were four drunks before Re- were Indians, while the other was a white man, who claimed he had gone wrong drinking "near" beer. George Washington, Allen Padawa' and Charley Bennett were the Red-, skins. When the first named was Questioned by Judge Fitzgerald as to whether or not he had been drunk, he grunted in reply:' "Only beer nvnV "The fine is more for jetting drunk on beer," said the court, humorously. "Eight dollars, or four days in Jail." The same sentence, double the pen alty imposed in the old days, was handed out to all the four men. When the white man, Hilloughby, was sen tenced, he protested vigorously for being arrested for drinking "near" beer, which he said he had regarded as a temperance drink and harm less. However, his statement was not taken at full face value by the court or the chief of police, for the latter ays all of the men had found some thing stronger than "near" beer. .

The remains of Miss Elza May Kennlson, the 18-year-old girl of Echo who was foully murdered by Grover Stoffle at the home of her grandfather, with whom she was living, about 9 o'clock on the morning of July 23, was burled her today at the Echo cemetery.

(Continued from page 1.) etude and steadfast austerity mock the hungry, burning heart of man! Stopping of National Waste. One cannot ride through the Blue mountains and not feel guilty for the government which has permitted the frightful waste of forest fires to con tinue for years, as ln the past. Here Is an entire hillside once cov ered with magnificent forest, now a barren waste, dotted here and there with blackened stumps and marked with the remains of the forest mon arch, once the pride of the hills. With no timber to hold the snow fall. It melts and runs down hurried ly to the lower lands, tearing out the grass roots, leaving the hillsides bar ren, seamed, arid and useless. With timber to catch and hold the snow, these hillsides would be stor; age reservoirs for moisture, luxuriant pastures and timber reserves of Ines timable value. The government must be congratu lated for saving the remnants. The bulk of the timber Is cut away aad burned down, but even -at this late day It is glorious to see this .great waste of forest wealth stopped. In a few years, even without reseeding, many of the destroyed forests will have been resurrected and the de nuded mountains will present a vast ly more attractive appearance than now. I am proud to know that Umatilla county Is to share largely In the ben efits of the forestry policy of Theo dore Roosevelt and Glfford Plnchot A PromiHe for Pendleton. Standing on the brow of the tow ering cliffs overlooking McKay creek 20 miles southeast of Pendleton, I was struck by the magnificent throb bing promises for Pendleton which I saw In those mountain gorges, rocky hillsides end vast sloping watersheds, all pouring their wealth Into the lap of our splendid county eat Here ln, these gorges kind nature has placed the masonry, ready hewn, for storage reservoirs to hold billions of gallons ol waste water. Here are the narrow canyons, here the rock, the clay, the earth for Im pregnable dams. Here from hun dreds of miles square of sloping hill sides could be gathered the snowfall nd spring freshets and yonder around and beyond Pendleton, lies the thirst ing arid land, pregnant with untold wealth and capable of supporting thousands of people! It seems that all that need be done by man, to utilise this superb gift of nature, Is to lay the waiting stones Into walls of masonry between the strong arms of the hills! Some day I hope to see the waste snowfall of these mountain sides blossoming Into verdant fields and pink peach blooms tributary to Pen dleton. It Is the greatest promise before the city. From these hillsides and water sources, It Is possible that Pendleton will also turn, In time, for her water supply. It Is a practical, feasible proposition and is worthy of serious thought. BERT HUFFMAN. INDIA PUNJAB TRADE. People Seeking More Modern Com- forts limn Formerly. According to Consul-General Wil liam H. Michael, of Calcutta, the re port on the Internal trade of the Pun jab, India, for the three years ending with March last reflects the fact that the agricultural conditions of the province were very favorable, except In the middle year of the trlennlum. He summarizes the trade as follows: The highest export figures succeed the excellent crops of 1906, and 49 per cent more goods were exported during this three-year period than during the preceding one. By far the bulk of the export trade Is In food grains .and the total under this head was 77 per cent greater than In the previous trlennlum. There was an Increase of 29 lakhs or 1966.666, ln value of Imports, despite slackening in the abnormal imports of sugar, and Increases In the consumption of piece goods, apparel, gunny bags, ghl (clarified butter), and kerosene oil, all Indicate Increased purchasing pow er of the people.- Imports of apparel rose ln value from 58 lakhs, or II. 933,330, to 103 lakhs, or 13,433,330. European cotton piece goods fell off by 5 1-4 lakhs, or 1175,000, while In dian piece goods advanced by about 60 lakhs, or $1,666,660. Prices of European piece goods were exceed ingly high, and this fact helped to turn the scale In favor of country made goods. On the whole the fig ures Indicate steady progress ln pros perity, and those relating to the Im ports especially show that the people are seeking more material comfort than has hitherto satisfied them. Rumor Is Not Correct. It was rumored here the fjrst of the week that the proposed exten sion of the Columbia Southern rail road had been abandoned and that the Corvallla & Eastern would bethe line extended into Crook county, says the Madras Pioneer. Mr. Howard, in response to an inquiry over the tel ephone, emphatically, denied the ru mor, and says so far as he knows the Columbia Southern will be the line with which the Central Oregon will connect. He stated further that It would be entirely satisfactory to have the subscribers ln this section make their subscriptions contingent upon the extension of the Columbia South ern or some line from the north. The rumor referred to above was the subject of much discussion here, as the extension of the C. B. was not looked upon with favor. Mr. Howard's explanation and the sugges tion that the subscriptions be con ditioned on the extension of the Co lumbia Southern will, however, over come what might have been a big ob stacle In securing subscriptions. Hay Gets Wetting. Ten thousand tons , of hay ln the central part of Crook county received a thorough wetting In the fields last Sunday and Monday. Much of the hay was either ln the shock or ln partly finished stacks, some in the wlnrow, and no small part In the swath. Just as It fell from the ma chines. Everyone began cutting the Fourth of July and but few of them had be gun to stack when the storm com menced. The greater part of the hay that got wet Is alfalfa and meadow grasses and will not be seriously In jured unless the rains continue. Within a radius of 10 miles of this place 10,000 tons have been caught In the rain, but all of the ranchers are optimistic, saying that the benefit will be greater to the second crop than the damage to the first. Prlne vllle Journal. Crop Report Enoourajrlng. Crop reports In the last few days from the various districts adjacent to this place are encouraging and Indi cate that the yield is going to be much better than was anticipated. From Agency Plains, the Fisher dis trict, Methodist Hill, Culver and other districts from which farmers were ln town the last of the week, the report Is brought that arc average crop will be harvested, and that the yield will be much heavier than was predicted two weeks ago. Much of the grain Is very late this year and this was es pecially benefited by the heavy rain last week. Several farmers In this Immediate neighborhood who were preparing to cut all their grain for hay, have concluded to thresh as the grain Is so much better than they expected. A few farmers say they will have as good a crop as they had last year, but not many are so fortu nate, although the reports altogether are very encouraging. Child Drowned. While wading ln the Spokane river at Lacrosse, near Coeur d'Alene, Ida ho, Thursday evening, the 6-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Klems was drowned. The body was recov ered later.

Roosevelt's Busy Boston Store PREDICTS BIG WHEAT CROP. A. D. Charlton Saye Fears of Short age Are Unfounded. That the wheat crop of the Palouse country will be an average one Is the belief of A. D. Charlton, assistant general passenger agent of the Nort ern Pacific, who has Just returned from a trip through Washington', says the Portland Oregonlan. He says that while the grain has been much dam aged ln spots, this condition does not necessarily mean a crop failure, or even a small yield on the whole While the grain generally will yield less per acre than last year, the acre age Is larger, and this will make up for shorter yield per acre, so that the total crop will average up well. With the good prices ln prospect, Mr. Charlton believes the crop Is such that It means continued prosperity for the Inland Empire and consequently for Portland. Mr. Charlton met C. M. Levy, third vice-president of the Northern Pa cific on the sound, and traveled through the state with him. Mr. Levy Is on a trip looking over the west end of the line, and will be In Port land the last of this week. He will spend several days In this city. A Warning.

Waitsburg citizens must pay the county road and bridge tax, accord ing to a decision of the supreme court Just rendered in the case of E. M. Denton against Walla Walla coun ty, says the Waitsburg Times. This suit was brought to enjoin the coun ty from enforcing the tax on the ground that the city charter, granted years ago by the legislature to Waits burg, provided that no county tax for road or bridge purposes should ever be levied on property In the city. This charter provision the supreme court says has been repealed by later laws authorising such tax against all property in the county, and thus af firms the decision of the lower court, denying the Injunction. If you see it In the East Oregonlan It's so.
