From tty-snow-capped Sierras President Taft plunged yesterday into the summer heat of the San Jimquin valley and arrived here shortly after 3 p. m. with the thermometer boverlng ubout the nineties. He was greeted by practically the entire poulutlon of the city and the surrounding; country and after a short nut 'mobile trip through the bus.ness section, addressed a gathering of many thousands in the courthouse square. The president's speech was in reality another Sunday sermon, the third he lias preached since his trip began. The text, quoted from memory, was "That he who conquereth himself, is greater than he who tukcth a c.ty," and from it the president drew the le-y.iQ that popular government must always be a failure unless It is based upon common sense and the self-re-itraint that goes to make the good loser. He drew an analogy between the American people In this respect and those peoples who In their at- ttetnpts at self-government follow an ectlon with a revolution.

ABRUPTLY TERMINATES MISTAKE IN INDICTMENT PAUSES DISMISSAL ; Discovered Tills Morning That Pris oner Was Charged With Killing George Instead of Fdward Dixon Case Wjll Rave to Go Back Grand Jury. to Because the indictment returned by the grand jury" charged Mike Ryan with the murder of George D.xon when Edward Dixon was the man killed, the Ryan murder trial came to a sudden end this morning. Dis covering the mistake In the Indict ment District Attorney Phelps did not wish to risk the chances of a re versal of the case at the hands of the supreme court and therefore moved that the Indictment be dismissed, and this was done. The eleven prospective jurors who had been passed for cause, and who have been kept under lock and kev since Saturday evening, some of them since Friday forenoon, were turned loose. The special veniremen who had been ordered to report here this morning were also allowed to depart and the entire case will be worked over from the beginning. The grand Jury has been ordered to report at once and there is a pos sibility that the case will yet come to trial at this term of court, though It Is probable that It will go over until the January' term. When it does come to trial there will be additional quibbling over the legality of the sec ond Indictment ao that the unfortu nate mistake will result In still more delays and expense.

Carter Says City Cannot Put Present Light Company Out of Business. FAVORS NEW W ATER SYSTEM IF FEASIBLE Attorney Answers C. P. Strain's Con tention That Present Company Has No Binding Franchise Northwest ern Coniiany Secured Rights Held by Original Electric Company City Cannot Arbitrarily Revoke Privileges Granted. Pendleton, Ore., Oct. 11, 190J. Editor East Oregonlan: Dear Sir My attention has been called to an article by Councilman C P. Strain, published In your issue of the 7th instant, whereip he suggests that the establishment of an Improved water supply for our city is not now practicable from a business point of view, unless it be established in con nection with a municipal electric plant. Mr. Strain's views are worth con sidering, and he has evidently given his subject some thought. Whatever win bring to our citizens a good sup ply of pure water, a supply which can be relied upon at all seasons of the year, is certainly much to be desired and I, for one, should advocate it if reasonable from a business stand point, but if the procuring of such water supply depends upon the city's ability to cancel the franchise of the Xorthwestern Gas & Electric com pany within the corporate limits, f do not think there is much hope of getting it. This franchise was granted origi nally to the Pendleton Electric Light Power company by an ordinance passed on October 16, 1888, which was drawn by Mr. Minor, now of Portland. The present company (The Xorthwestern Gas & Electric Co.) succeeded to "all the rights, fran chises and privileges heretofore granted to the Pendleton Electric Light & Power Co." by the provisions of ordinance Xo. 412, passed Septem ber 22. 1903, and as long as the pres ent electric company complies with the provisions of these two ordinances its franchises will continue, for It is a rule of law that a city cannot arbi trarily revoke or declare forfeited li censed rights and privileges unless the right to do so Is reserved In the ordinances granting them. And no such reservations exist in either of the ordinances above named Let us. then, endeavor to work out our water supply question by some other means than through the hope of taking away the franchises of the N'. Wr. G. & E. Co. Surely there must be some way to help ourselves without destroying (or attempting to destroy) the property of others. CHAS. H. CARTER MORSE MUST DOX PRISON STRIPES Xew York. Oct. 11.
