In order to show the remarkable
growth in the development and
wealth of Umatilla county, County
Assessor Strain has prepared two
summaries of the assessment roll.
One is the summary of the roll for
1902. which was the last assessment
taken before he took the office. It
Is based on a one-third valuation,
while the other is a summary of the
1909 assessment and i based on the
actual market value. His reports
show the wealth of this county to
have almost trebled In the past eight
years.
One of the remarkable things about
the comparison is the showing that
even In the cities and towns there has
been an increase In the value of town
anj city lots and tne improvements
on these of more than a million dol
lars s. nee 1902.
But it is in the Increase in the

Another Xogm Implicated.
Cairo, III.. Xov. 12. Will James,
the negro suspected of being the mur
derer of Miss Annie Pelley, was killed
here last night by a mob. James was
Btrung up to a public arch and when
the rope broke at least B Shots were
fired Into his body. He made a partial
confession and Implicated another ne.
gro, Arthur Alexander, for Whom the
mob is now searching.
James was lynched In the most
prominent square of the city and hung
to the arch at Eighth and Commercial
streets.
Women were the first to -pull the
rope. When It broke, the frenzy of
the mob was uncontrollable and .volley
after volley was fired Into the body,
shooting It to pieces.
The mob then dragged the body
over the streets for more than a 'mile
to tne scene or the murder where it
was burned. At least 18,000 people
witnessed the lynching. James was
found with Kherirr Davis between Kor
nak, III., and Dalnap, by the crowd
rrom Cairo.
Officers Are Overpowered.
The orTleers were overpowered, the
negro captured and after a oonferenoe
it was decided to bring him to Cairo
and lynch him here.
Fully 1,000 people went in search of
the ncfrro. Wlien they returned they
were met by a howling mob of at least
5,00 more. They marched direct to
the arch, sweeping everything before
them. Many women wore out to help
do the work.
Sheriff Davis pleaded for the lire of
the negro, but without avail, and wken
Cairo was reached Dnvis was taken
In charge by a part of the mob, while
the rest rosluid the negro to the scene
of action.
When fmnid by the mob the negro
sided and a short religious service for
tne benefit of Salnncr's soul was held,
after which he was strung up. the rope
being placed over a telegraph pole
at 21st and Washington -streets.
Mob Is Merrllr-.
The mob found some difficulty In
breaking the cage, a e . . steel struc
ture, but after a half htiur or ham
mering the door gave way and Salz
ner was taken out. The mOb dragged
Salr.ner to Washington avenue and
21st street, adjoining the public
square.
Salxner cried and begged ptteouAly
for his life, and his appeals were met
with cries and blows from the mob.
When Salzner was asXod Tor his
last statement, a stranger In the crowd
steppeil forward and said he believed
Snlzner was Innocent, wherenpon the
mob fell upon him and kicked ami
struck him and finally knocked him
down. It was by hard work ttiat the
cooler heads of the mob saved his life.
He was compelled to beg or mercy,
nnd rinally cried out In a loud voice
that Salzner should be lynched, after
which he was driven from the ob.
Attention was then given sahsner, who
begged for mercy and mumbled that
his sisters had killed his wife, at which
.the mob clamored for his execution.
After Salzner was hanged and
while the body was being riddled wiiUh

fell to the ground, where it now lies
