We do not belieye the Oregonian intends to retard the development of the interior, yet repeated reference to this remark tends to put this section in a wrong light with those not familiar with condi tions. Both Judge Lovett and the Oregonian ought to know that there are many thousands of acres of vacant government land in Central Oregon awaiting the coming of the homeseeker and the value placed upon private holdings need not deter the man looking for a home. The Times Herald realizes that the disposi tion of large holdings of well developed irrigated lands would give great impetus to this coun try, provided the price was right, yet these holdings are not so large when compared to the im mense area awaiting only a way to market Who, pray, is to be the judge of what Central Oregon land is worth? Is it to be based upon its production in its present iso lation and sold to the individual who had not the grit to pioneer it is evident these gentlemen came over the Hill survey, for the purpose of f amilarizing them selves with the country and be in readiness to take contracts on the railroad work which they evidently believe will start in the near future. LAW SEEMS LAME Two peddlers were arrested and brought before Justice Ran dall last Monday charged with having beaver hides in their pos session. The defendants, filed a demurer to the complaint based on the grounds that it did not show sufficient evidence under the statute to constitute a crime and the demurer was sustained. The law says nothing about beaver hides, but does provide a penalty for destroying, killing, or having in possession beaver. As it stands the law is more or less a farce as it would seem im possible to convict one having beaver hides and it is not likely many would be found with beaver in their possession, it Dnngs out a point of law that is of in terest not only locally but all over the state. Atty. Sizemore was private Born-Saturday. Dec. 16, to Mr. and Mrs. Bailey Hayes at La wen, a son. The little one lived but two days. The bereaved parents have the sympathy of their many friends. The public school celebrated the Christmas season yesterday afternoon at the school building with a suitable program that was well rendered. The exercises before. No particulars wcro ob tainable as the man who 'phoned in to Sheritr Richardson and the doctor was not present nnd could give no information other than that the shooting was tho result of an argument. Tho man who did the shooting is well known, having been in that section for a number of years and was formerly employ ed by Mr. Hollis. a sheepman. The dead man had not been in that territory a very long time, we understand he had a small ranch on Cotton Wood creek, was a young man and unmarried. were held in one of the rooms His father lives in boutli Laro whereallthe children were as-'linn and the sheriff was request spmlilwi.

Supt and the benefit of increased value jrs j that transportation naturally win bring? We know that present land values in Central Oregon are to some extent fictitious, but how this is going to affect the build ing of the railroad when there are thousands of acres vacant we fail to see. People don't have to buy it at exhorbitant prices for there is too much vacant besides good grain land can be had reasonable in other localities. At any rate has there been any disposition to place a higher val uation upon Central Oregon lands than Hood River. Rogue River and other highly developed sec tions considering the respective productiveness? The Times-Herald would sug-( gest that the Oregonian tell the waiting people looking for homes of the millions of acres of vacant land in Central Oregon for them rather than repeat Judge Lo yett's statement. Then it will be help ing instead of creating a false impression. Hamilton, assisted by W. Geary and Allen Biggs, held the examination of applicants for teachers' certifi cates this week, the examination closing today. There were 16 applicants: Misses Consally, Mabel Robins, Dorcas Sweek, Zella Irying.

The papers will be forwarded to the state superintendent for grading and the result of the examiation will not be known for sometime. CITV COUNCIL ACTS. The Canyon Eagle seems to be "hard up" for copy for it has joined some of the other knock ers against the Harney country. An editorial in its last issue in sinuates that the Hanley compa ny and P. L. S. Co. own all the land worth while. Of course the facts do not bear out such a statement and it is foolish for the Eagle to make it. HILL ROUTE CROSS SECTIONED. H. A. Brown and M.

They came over the survey of tho Hill line from tho west and Mr. Brown states ho made particular observation of the 8 takes along tho proposed lino and found the entire dis tance cross-sectioned and that tho route is ready for the con tractors without further prelim- A special meeting of the city council was called yesterday evening at the request of Dr. Geary, health officer, to take such steps as was considered expedi ent respecting the public health. Dr. Geary was appointed city health officer and a resolution was adopted in which it was con sidered best not to allow any pub lic gatherings for a couple of weeks. The marshal was in structed to request owners of all places where minors where in the habit of congregating to not allow them to loiter. LOCAL AND PERSONAL J. C. Collins, of the Collins Auto Co., operating a line of cars between here and Bend, was in the city for a few days this week getting acquainted. Bill Hanley handed the west ern governors some "hot Bluff', in New York the other day. He gave the newspapers a good story on all of them. The Oregonian received last evening has more information respecting the railroad work in Malheur canpon. Three big out fits are on the ground and ample elaborate; there was also a tree and at the close of the program Santo Clause entered the room with a sack filled with stockings full of popcorn and candy for each of the scholars. Beautiful souvenirs, the work of the chil dren, were provided. Many par ents and friends were present, In accordance with the request of the health officer and city council, there will be no public gatherings during holiday week. The Prineville basket ball team has been notified, the skating rink and moving picture house have been closed and the dances and entertainments scheduled to take place in Tonawama theatre have been cancelled. The church and Sunday Schools have also adjourned temporarily. We be lieve all citizens should work in harmony with the officers with a view of suppressing the epidemic of scarlet fever or Dukes disease, whatever it is called. With co operation the city will soon be entirely free from infection and the schools will resume. Died Yesterday afternoon, December 22, at the family home, Frank L., youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Voegtly. The little fellow took sick with scarlet fever some ten days ago and de veloped pneumonia later which was the immediate cause of death. The little boy was four years and three months of age. He was a bright, beautiful child who was a particular favorite among all who knew him. It was a sad blow to his parents who have the deep ' sympathy of the entire communi-1 ty. The funeral service will be held this afternoon from the fami ly residence. Rev. C. C. Bab- Miss Gladys Holland arrived bidge will conduct the service home Thursday from Portland which will not be public. to spend tne holiday vacation. myre is a peaceable citizen and it seems to be the impression that he had no part in the affair, merely a bystander and iwrhajis hit with a shot intended for the other man. It is not known how seriously he was wounded. Dr. Marsden started for the scene last night to give the wounded man attention. Sheriff Richardson had intend ed leaving this morning with Coroner Geary but the latter has such pressing duties here just now he decided not to go as the local justice could look after the inquest. Mr. Richardson has been in formed by his deputy in that dis trict that Taylor had made his escape and he had decided it un necessary to go over. Taylor is familiar with the country on south clear to the Mexican line and with such a start, if he is really trying to get away, he would be clear out of the country before the sheriff could reach the place of the shooting and take up the trail, therefore he consid ered it best to try to locate the man later through otheragciicies. Sheriff Richardson is well ac quainted with Taylor and says it is possible he has not ran away but is coming in to give himself up. Taylor is not inclined to be quarrelsome except when drink ing, according to those who know him. LOCM. AND PERSONAL. S. W. Shown was over from Harney yesterday.
