Serve-Has One More lear to Serve
Dr. W. II. 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.

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

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.

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

The pathetic feature of today's

COLLEGES ARE TOO MUCH

Rockefeller $43,000,000 Fund Are
So Close Together That Their In

Remedy. , .
Portland, April 20. The colleges
of Oregon will not share In the distri
bution of 43,000,000 of the John D.
Rockefeller fund. Dr.. Wallace But
trick, chairman of the general edu
cational board, In a communication
to educators of the state declares that
the location of schools In Oregon la
responsible. An area fifty by a hun
dred and fifty miles Includes seven
colleges of which the general board
takes cognizance. There are the state
university, McMinnvllle college, WU
llnmette University, Pacific Univer
sity, Dallas, Albany and Pacific col
leges. The institutions would have
to scatter over a bigger area to get a
part of the fund. No distribution of
money without a distribution of the
schools Is the ultimatum of the board.
Buttrick says In his communica
tion that the schools are so close!
located they cannot thrive because
their Interests conflict. So far as can
be ascertained no Oregon college Is
ready to tear down, move or construct
bigger buildings In order to get a part
of the funds.

only troublesome but are in danger
of getting Injured. The court has
therefore Instructed Probation Officer
Halley to round up the offending
youngsters and notify them as well as
their parents, that conditions must
change.

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.
