Washington, April 15. Robert S. Dean, Justice of the Oregon supreme court, was today nominated by Pres ident Taft for the new federal Judge ship in the Oregon district. The Judge ship wan created at the last sesHlyn of congress. Former Senator Fulton wanted the Job, but was defeated by the storm of protests that arose. Among local members of the bar, the appointment of Judge Dean has occasioned little surprise and appar ently mets with universal favor. In speaking of the matter. Circuit Judge Bean said: 1 consider it a good appointment'. He Is an able man and capable Judge. He will probably give as good satisfaction to the people generally as any man who could have been appointed. Ills ap pointment should be satisfactory to both factions of the republican par ty." Judge Fee, president of the local bar association, said: "It Is a good appointment. I consider Judge Bean among the ablest of the men who have sat upon the slate court bench that I am sorry to see htm go from that bench. He is an able Judge, a ch art man and his years of experience as a trlal'judge before going upon the su premo bench should make him qual ified to orrupy the new position. I am especially pleased that ,t President Taft was not compelled to go out side of the state to find a man to ap point to this position." "It is an excellent appointment." said District Attorney Phelps. Owing to the late hour at which the message was received it was impos sible to get statements from other members of the bar.

Ills home was In tho west corridor of the county Jail. Mr. Carlson evidently concluded that walling for the grand Jury to meet was had for his health, nnd that he would be much better off camping In the hills over toward Rock Creek. Unless Sheriff Chllders finds the wanderer this afternoon he will have at least ono night In the woods.

PRICE OF FIDOS FLOUR THAT COST $1.50 NOW WORTH A BARREL lYIces are ExKVil to Further Ar vanco Due to tlu- Rlc In Price of Wheat Prlev' Advance v Forty CrntM a Iturrel In Port lam! Yestcr ilny lat Local Increase Comes Ijist Week When il Is Marked up 25 Cents. Following the phenoininal Jump of 40 cents a barrel In the price of flour J In the Portland market. It Is expected that the price of flour In Pendleton will again be advanced. As the price has already been Increased $150 per barrel during the past few months, a further Increase will not be looked forward to with very much pleasure bv the bakeries and consumers of Tour In general, j Flour that formerly sold for $4.50 per barrel Is now selling at $i'. The last increase was made last week and was an advance or 25 cents. The following from the Portland Journal tells of the conditions in the metropolis: I Flour today took the most phenom enal Jump ever recorded in history In the Pacific northwest, when at the In stance of several Interior millers, the (price was raised 40 cents a barrel on patent flour and as high as 20 cents on several Inferior brands. The ad vance has been general all over the country, but no other section has had the tremendous Individual raise today given northwest flour. For a long time the local millers have feared raising their prices for . fear of an Invasion of the local market by cheaper eastern wheat. .However, j when the price of the Pastern product kept rising steadily their fears were overcome and today the Jump came. ,At 40 cents a barrel the raise will be 10 cents per aack. Flour Is now bringing to local wholesalers as high ns $6.05 a barrel, j while the minimum price Is $5.65. Since the first of the year flour has 'advanced nearly $4 a barrel or In ' many Instances nearly 60 per cent of the usual cost. It has been the most phenomenal, yet steady advance that has ever affected the local market and ; bids fair to grow higher yet. III LA GRANDE to Cnrlson tills morning at the usual time, and no officer was In the jail from that time until noon, when both the sheriff and deputy Xewlln went into the corridor with tlie purpose of locking the prisoner in the cell while they were away at dinner. To say that they were surprised when they found their man gone Is putting it mildly. Sheriff Chllders wasted no time In speculation however, but at once mounted his horse nnd went af ter his man. Carlson made his getaway by saw ing one of the bars of the north win dow In tho corridor of the Jail and bending the bar out of place. Tlie cutting was evidently done with a thin dull Instrument, and must have taken considerable time, although tho metal of the bar Is very soft, nnd they are entirely unfit for the purpose to which they are set.

Declaring it important to the wel fare of the Philippines that the tariff bill for the islands be passed simul taneously with the Tayne bill, .Taft today sent a message to congress transmitting the proposed measure prepared under the direction of the bureau of Insular affairs. The mes sage states that the bureau's measure revises the law of the Philippines, and the revising of the tariff makes It conform as nearly as possible with the regulations and customs of laws and of the states. The purpose of the bill is to meet the new conditions which will arise under the Payne bill. Accompanying the message was a letter from Secretary Dickinson, who admits unfamillarity with the sub ject but transmits the recommenda tion of General Edwards, chief of the bureau of insular affairs, who says: "Be It understood that the free ad Ission of American goods to the TJilllppIn will revolutionize business there. Unless the adoption of the policy is accompanied by a revision of the present Philippine tariff It will be disastrous to Important industries and embarrass the Philippine govcrn- ' nu nt." The schedule regarding, tobacco ; and sugar in the Philippines In the ; measure are identical with the Payne bill. 'AFT FAVORS STATEHOOD j NEW MEXICO El Paso. Tex..

The failure of the Butte team to make use of the local diamond will be somewhat of a disappointment to the Pendleton fans who had counted I on seeing a professional league team in action in this city.

The board has already closed a contract with eastern capitalists who are in terested in the proposed Eagle val ley electric road, but to make the contract of value the rights to water necessary to irrigate the tract must be obtained.

Douglas Belts, George G. SchUgil and I 0 1 BREAKER Grand Jury Is Taking Evidence Against Alleged Local Op tion Violators. WITNESSES COMING FROM ALL SECTIONS OF COUNT! Everything Indicates That Investiga tions Are Broad In Scope Ne News Given Out, However Several Pur ported Detectives Waiting Their Turn Before Jury Depot and Ex press Agents Bring Big Rolls of Records Evidence Thought to B4 Sufficient for Conviction. BANK WINS SUIT AGAINST TEMPLES After being out for three hours, the jury In the case of the Commercial Xational bank against J. F. and W. P. Temple, brought In a verdict In favor of the bank, at 3 o'clock this after noon. The verdict was for $348.50 and $50 attorney fees, being the full amount sued for. The Guy Hayes cattle stealing case is being tried this after noon. This Is the second trial, the first having resulted In a hung Jury. Judging from the witnesses who are now being examWd by the Uma tilla county grand Jury, the Investiga tion of the alleged violation of the liquor laws Is In full swing. It Is also easy to surmise that the scope of the Investigation is to be fully as broad as was Indicated In this paper last week. From appearances, an effort Is to be made to secure indictments against individuals In practically every city and town In the county, not except ing Pendleton. Among the principal witnesses being examined today are depot and express agents from the several towns. Each of these carried a bundle of papers and records Into the grand jury room with him and It is supposed that these records will show that certain persons have had shipped to them more intoxicating liquors than they could possibly con sume themselves. This . evidence may be used as a basis from which to ork and It is also possible that it may be used to corroborate other evidence yet to be presented to the grand jury. Men who are believed to have act ed In the capacity of detectives have also been seen about the court house and are evidently awaiting their turn ' to tell what they discovered. Promi nent workers In the law enforcement league have also been summoned to the city from various pnrts of the county. Therefore, while it is Impossible to find out exactly what is transpir ing in the grand jury room, there is no longer any doubt that considerable evidence of violations of the liquor law has been secured and is now be ing presented. It is also known that the anti-saloon men believe they have" secured sufficient to result, not only in indictments, but In convic tions. CONFESSES TO MURDER OF RELATIVE IN ITAH Seattle, April 15.
