(Special Correspondence.) Milton. Ore., June 9. Overreach ing by all odds the efforts of any pre vious occasion. Milton's third annual strawberry festival and horse enow, which was given here today, was pronounced by every man, woman and child of the 6000 people who at tended to have been the most suc cessful event of its kind ever given in the Walla Walla valley. A drizzling rain which threatened at the first breaking of the morning to mar the pleasure and interrupt the events of the day was dispelled by the warm rays of the sun, and by 9 o'clock the streets of Milton were thronged with people from Walla Walla. Pendleton, Dayton. Prescott, Weston, Athena and the surrounding country. Owing to a crippled service on the interurban line between Mil ton and Freewater hundreds of those who intended to come from the Gar den City were unable to do so. But despite this condition the large and spacious grounds in the Nicholas grove, where the festivities were he'd, was crowded during the entire day. ' The half crate of strawberries which won first prize was turned over to L. E. Meaeham. publicity manager of the Walla Walla Com mercial club. These berries were grown by Clarence O'Bert, residing five miles above Milton, and they will be served to the Chicago business men on their visit to the Garden City nest Friday. The horse show and stock parade, which was given in the afternoon, was the most successful occasion of a similar nature ever held in Milton. From an advertising standpoint, today's festivities have been of the first water- Many pros pective homeseekers were present and exclamations of surprise and satisfaction were heard from everybody.

The senatorial Investiga tion committee today Introduced in the senate four bills, says a Madison, Wis., special, which are Intended to correct evils believed to exist under the present election laws. One bill specifies the purpose for which a candidate for public office may spend money; requires newspa pers to print political advertising un der a pica caption, and to publish names of the stockholders of the pa per; prohibits a candidate for the leg islature from contributing to the state political committee's campaign fund and requires the candidates for state and congressional offices to file week ly reports of their campaign expendi ture.

But you can't cure catarrh In a few days, that's an utter impossibil ity, because there is no remedy known that will kill the catarrh germs in that short time. But you can cure catarrh If you will have a little patience and breathe in Hyomel (pronounced Hlgh-o-me) three or four times a day. Hyomel cures catarrh by killing the germs and it kills the germs be cause it gets where the germs are. Hyomel Is a powerful antiseptic and germ killer air; it is made from the fluid extracted from the eucalyp tus trees of Inland Australia where ca tarrh has never existed. It gives relit f instantly, stops hawking in a few days and Is guar anteed to cure catarrh, asthma, croup and bronchitis or money back. A complete outfit, Including Inhaled costs $1.00, and extra bottles of Hy omel if afterwards needed, cost but 50 cents. Sold by leading druggists everywhere. "Hyomel certainly saved my life and I accord it the credit which it deserves and merits. There is noth ing too strong for me to say regard gardlng Hyomel."

Large box of tab hits 60 ctatt. Druggist la all town onment In the state prison from one to three years. Another bill provides the secre tary of state shall publish a pamphlet containing a statement of the candi date's reasons why he should be nomi nated and elected to office. Still another bill provides that If a candidate doesn't file expense state ments according to law his name can not go on the official ballot. A fourth bill makes It a felony for any one to mark a ballot for an Illiter ate voter. These bills ar considered extreme ly radical by most of the members of the legislature, and probably will not pass in their present form, If at all. A general bill providing what a can. dldate for office may or may not do is so sweeping In its nature that It would be difficult for any one run ning for office to observe Its provis ions. These bills, however, are ex pected to go through the senate with little modification, but In the assem bly they will have rough sailing. HOOKER T. WASHINGTON TAKESS JOHNSON AS TEXT New York. Jack Johnson's title to the heavyweight championship of the world was the basic theme tonight in a sermon preached by Booker T. Washington to the Negro Men's Busi ness League of New York. The fight er's name was not mentioned, however. "In the last analysis," Dr. Wash ington told his hearers, "success Is what counts. Success, despite race or color, makes the man on top respect you. What the world wants is suc cess. Don't herald your gloom. "You remember when a certain member of our race went to Australia to do a job; warnings were sounded that the color line would be drawn. The question was hurled at him: Arn't you afraid In that white man's country. "Now suppose he had gone to Aus tralia crestfallen, saying he was a negro and much oppressed. Would he have won? It was a Godsend that he did win. It shows to the negro race what determination will do. "The time has come when a negro must get a commercial, business and economical footing and get it In this generation or fail In ever getting it. Commerce, the dollar, draws no color line. The man who produces what somebody else wants gets there." HIGH PRICES PAID FOR VALLEY WOOL Oregon City, Or. The Oregon City Manufacturing company has purchas ed a pool of wool at Scio, Linn coun ty, paying 21,81 cents per pound. This is said to be the highest price paid for wed In the Willamette val ley this year. The company which operates one of the largest woolen mills in the West, had a representative on the ground and entered Into competition with eastern and local concerns, as the pool was auctioned off at public sale to the highest bidder. About 4000 fleec es were purchased, amounting to nearly 30,000 pounds. This sale of wool Is far out of the ordinary transaction In this valley and establishes the Oregon City Manu facturing company as one of the lead ing wool buying factories in the west. Trouble Makers Ousted. When a sufferer from stomach trouble takes Dr. King's New Life Pills he's mighty glad to see his dys pepsia and indigestion fly, but more he's tickled over his new, fine ap petite, strong nerves, healthy vigor, all because stomach, liver and kid neys now work right. 25c at Tallman & Co. and the Pendleton Drug Co. WHAT THE RECLAMATION ACT HAS ACCOMPLISHED Spokane, Wash. Regarding the im portance of the work of the national Irrigation congress, which will have Its 17th session in Spokane, August 9 14, R. Inslnger chairman of the board of council, says: "The national reclamation act was passed In 1902. At that time there were In the government's name. In the 1? states affected, 600,000,000 acres of arid land, which were capable of supporting at least 50,000,000 people. By 1911 the reclamation service will have reclaimed nearly 2,000,000 acres, at an estimated cost of $70,000,000. There are 40,000,000 acres of arid lands susceptible to reclamation by Irrigation. The construction cost of the reclamation works Is returned to the government from the sale of land, the proceeds to be used again In fur thering Irrigation development. Irri gation Is making a garden spot and an empire of the 'Great American De sert' and the work of the Irrigation congress Is yet in Its Infancy." WELLMAN GETTING READY FOR HIS POLAR TRIP Paris.

The grounds of the AInskaYukon-raelflc exposition abound In beautiful vlstns and sunny, flower bedecked walks. One of them is shown In the pic ture. It is a short avenue which ends abruptly nt the Forestry building, which is to be seen In the distance wltb an ornate music pavilion planted squarely before It. The picture was taken on April 15, and the lumber seen plied on the sidewalk does not nrgue unfinished construction, but unfinished exhibit booths on the Inside of the Palace of Manufactures, in front of which it is lying This floral gnrnlture transforms this wide avenue Into a veritable beauty spot The newness and utilitarian aspect of tho great Talnce of Manufactures are toned Into keeping with the picture, and the mass of color In the formal flower beds reflects a splendor which Is a wonderful nddltlon to the attractiveness of the spot.

E PICKPOCKETS Portland. Portland is alive with pickpockets and sneak thieves of all classes and degrees of cleverness and shiftiness, says the Journal. Police reports indicate that all the most able and astute thugs operating at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific exposition have come to Portland In anticipation of great crowds during the rose festi val. Notwithstanding the fact that the police are making all efforts to bring about a general roundup, everyone Is warned to keep their hands on their pocketbook. Both on the crowded streets and In places of amusement the warning holds good. Pickpockets operating in a gang at the postoffice Monday about 10:30 o'clock slipped a wallet containing $150 In paper from the pocket of J. C .Naylor of 603' Grant street, an electrician In the employ of the Port land Railway, Light & Power com pany, and made their escape. Naylor was robbed of all the savings of him self and his sister, Addle Naylor, for months past, except 20 cents. Naylor had just drawn about $100 from a bank and this with between $40 and $50 which he had with him he had changed Into paper at the postooffice. His mother, to whom he Intended sending the money, lives In Utah some distance from a postoffice of any consequence, so he did not care to send a money order. Receiving the bills he placed them In his pocketbook, which in turn he put in his hip pocket with the pocket flap buttoned. Coming from the post office he lingered for a time on the steps of the Morrison street entrance. Four men, none of whose appearance he remembers, brushed up behind him and two crowded around In front. One stopped directly in front of him and, reaching down, began brushing off his shoes with a news paper, completely blocking the door way. The crowd bunched about the electrician and jostled him, and the two men behind crowded and pushed and cursed. Five minutes later Naylor found his savings had disappeared. He re ported the theft immediately. "It will make it hard for mother," Naylor told the police. "It was all the money sister and I could scrape together for months. We were to send It all to mother. She needs it badly." Detectives believe that the irang which robbed the electrlclnn was made up of members of that which picked the pockets of several passen gers on the Northern Pacific train which arrived In Portland from Seat tle last night.
