Lytle has been reap- pointed state sheep Inspector for a term of two years. Attorney Dan P Smythe has been re-elected secretary of the state board of sheep commis sioners and Pendleton will continue to be the headquarters for the state board. This Is the result of the meet Ing held In I'ortlund yesterday. A. I Mcintosh of Pauline, Crook county, was elected president of the board, while Charles Cleveland, the recently appointed member, took part In the deliberations for the first time. By following out the rule which has been In vogue of making the man president who has the shortest time to serve, Smythe would have been made president of the board. He chose rowever, to waive this rlffht and allowing Mcintosh to be advanced to president, necepted the position of secretary for the remaining year of his term of office. The following account of yesterday's meeting Is taken from the Portland Journal: "Oregon, the greatest sheep raising country In the world and 1909 the banner year," Is the slogan adopted by the state board of sheep commis sioners who are holding today an Im portant session nt the Hotel Oregon.

McClure Inspector In charge of the United States bureau of animal Industry In Washington, Oregon and Idaho, and Dr. W. H. Lytic, state sheep Inspec tor present at the meeting. It was decided by the board, that the annual dipping of sheep which the state law requires will be dis pensed with this year. The etate sheep Inspector reported only a few cases of scab and It was thought safe not to compel all sheep to be dipped. Twelve Inspectors have been work ing In Oregon during the past year r'"" ' ;;,,,:: . , " "h . Progress of the trial today and seem hea thv condition so far as scab is . . . , . . ' . . concerned. They, however, discovered a grave condition of affairs In the Willamette valley. Many sheep have been ser iously Injured by lice and ticks. Bucks shipped out of the state to the east and from the Willamette valley to eastern Oregon have been found In bnd condition because of vermin. "Wool growers of the Willamette val ley. will therefore, be requested to dip this year for lice and ticks, and the statement will be made that un less the damage done by vermin Is topped at once the sheep Inductry In Oregon will be permanently In jured. Dr. Lytle recommends that any dip he msed for this purpose except sul phur and lime. Sheep are also susceptible to In ternal diseases, and the matter of pre,, ventatlves was discussed before the board of commissioners. Intestinal parasletes and liver flukes liave caus ed great harm during the past year. In fact, so great has been the harm from this one cause alone thnt a bul letin will be prepared by the board SWALLOWS SILVER DOLLAR AND NOW IN HOSPITAL San Francisco, April 20. Tern Theodore, the bus boy at the St. Francis hotel,' lies nt the. hospital today where It is thought an operation will bo necessary for the removal of n silver dollar which he swallow ed last night. The hoy was entertaining fellow employees In the dining room at the hntrl, and attempted to throw a Mil iar In the air and catch It be tween his teeth. He caught the coin hut did not slop Its down ward course. warning the farmers and suggesting remedies. Every sheep grower In the state will get one of these bulletins. At the same time a directory con taining the name and address of every wool grower will be contained therein. Conditions for an unusually good sheep year are at present very good. Damage, done by disease and preda tory animals is most to be feared. The predatory animal law passed at the last session of the legislature will save the lives of thousands of sheep. The year 1908 was not considered very good, yet 18,000,000 pounds of wool were produced, the fleeces aver aging 8 pounds each, taken from 2,- 000,000 sheep. There are about 2, 600,000 sheep In the state now. Wool Is selling from 14 to 20 cents a pound, and the market Is good Tariff revision will not affect the wool Industry In Oregon, Mr. Smythe announced this morning. The only change In the tariff will be made on heavy third class wool, and this kind of wool Is not produced In Oregon. The co-operation of the secretary of agriculture will be solicited In con nection with the fight the state board of sheep commissioners Is making against foot rot and infectious dis eases among sheep. A crusade against disease and predatory animals will I be undertaken by the board for this ycar In8pec,orhave been cautloned to be very active in the performance of duties which come In line with these objects.

JAIM . dl' NO ROCKEFELLER H FOS Ktt VICTORY FOR ENTflYMEN Land Office Rules With Con testees in Umatilla Cash Entry Cases. NOT NECESSARY TO ILAYE USED LAND Decision Given in Case of William Rob erts Many Other ftses In Which Same Point Is Involved Govern ment Agents Brought Contests on Ground Entrymen Were not Using Land Themselves Appeals May be Taken. Through a decision Just given by the reglsterer and receiver of the land office at La Grande a signal victory has been won by the entrymen who filed on grazing land formerly In cluded under the Umatilla reserva tion. The decision given was In the case of the government versus William Roberts. The testimony in the casa was taken here In February, H. T. Jones, being lcpresentative of the government while Raley, Richards & Raley appeared for the entrymen.. However the Roberts case Is but ona out of 30 or 40 similar cases and in. each case the principal point at Is sue is the same. This point Is whether or not an en tryman must show that lie has used the land for grazing purposes. In the past the department has held that entrymen must make such a showing and the cases against Roberts et a) were based on the allegation that the entrymen were not using the land themselves. But under the decision given by Reglstar Bramwell and Receiver Eberhardt it Is held that the entry man has done sufficient In showing that the land Involved is grazing land, regardless of whether or not he has used it as such. In local circles it Is now taken for granted that the land office w-lli rule the same with reference to all of the cases that have been brought. These are fhe Umatilla cash entry cases and the evidence in the case was taken in this city within the past six months. It Is possible the government attor neys will take the case of Roberts be fore the commissioner general of the land office for further hearing. CHILDREN' OFFERED TO PORTLAND AID SOCIETY Robert E. Allen of Freewater, was In the city today to have his two nephews committed to the Boys' and Girl's Aid society of Portland. In turning the boys over to the Juvenile court, Mr. Allen stated that their mother was dead and that their fath er was dissolute and worthless, hav ing gone off and left the boys with out anyone to care for them. Hav ing a large family of his own and being a poor man he did not feel able to assume the additional burden so asked the court to take charge of the boys. One Is 13 and the other seven. Both are bright looking little fellows and the aid society will probably have no difficulty in finding good homes for both of them. TRIAL OF TIMBER BRIBER BENSON BEGINS Washington, April 20.
