The meeting of the Oregon Wool- IN PLESS CASE Local Officers More Convinced That Columbia River Body Was That of Curt Pless. REMAINS WILL PROBABLY BE DISINTERRED SOON Has Been Determined That the Box in Which the Body was Found Floating in the Colnmbln was the Kind I'sed for Shipping Fruit When l.a-t seen the Bellingbam Business Man Was on His Way to Wcnatdiee, a Famous Fruit Section on the Upper Columbia Rope About His Neck Was Also the Kind Used by Orchardist. The more thought local officers give to the matter the more they are inclined to believe that the body of the murdered man found in the box in the Columbia river was that of Curt Pless, the prominent business man who disappeared from Belling ham. It will be remembered that the body was found In a box that had been used for shipping fruit trees. These boxes are all alike and are uni form in shape and size. The piece of rope found In the box, the imprint of which was left on the neck of the man, was the kind used by ochard ists or nurserymen In tieing up bundles of fruit trees. It will also be remembered that when Pless dropped so suddenly from sight, in the latter part of January of this year, he had left his home to go to Wenatchee on a hurried business trip. Wenatchee, as is well known. Is In the center of one of the best known o:' the eastern Washington fruit sec tions. It Is also on the banks of the Columbia river in whose waters the body of the murdered man was found, more than 200 miles below. That three or four months would be re quired for the body to cover that dis tance is altogether probable. It has already been shown that the remains would beep in a fairly good state of preservation for that length of time in the cold running water of the Columbia. The next step in the search for the perpetrator of the murder will be the search for the fruit grower who lost one of his fruit tree boxes at about the time that Pless disappeared. When he Is located it will also probab'y be ascertained that he missed a quan tity of lime at about the same time. The remains of the murdered man will also probably be disinterred In order to more fully establish his Iden tity as that of the missing Belling ham man. The teeth will be about the only part of his anatomy that cculd now be used for this purpose. PITTSBURG STEEL WORKERS WANT HIGHER W AGES Pittsburg. July 1.

Be tween 300 and 400 of the prominent woolgrowers of the state will be in attendance and will be Pendleton's guests for two cr three days. In ad dition prominent state and national men will appear on the program Among these will be Gifford Pinchot and probably Secretary of Agriculture Wilson. It is also expected that some of the officers of the national association will be present. Presi dent Gooding and Secretary Ge.rge S Walker are the ones who are es pecially expected. This will undoubtedly be the tnn largely attended and the most Im portant meeting of stockmen ever held in this state.
