Packer Refuse to "Withdraw the Reward or Give Up the Search for the Criminals. fTWAfTTA, April 30. An agent of the kid napers has made a proposition -to Edward JL Cudahy to return $21,000 of the money paid for his son's ransom, demanding in return a -withdrawal of the $25,000 reward and a cessation of the search that is being prosecuted, together with an abandon ment of the determination to punish the criminals. The proposition came In a letter from Elgin, III., and Mr. Cudahy Is convinced of Its authenticity. He went to Chicago 10 days ago because of it, be ing summoned there by his brother In response to overtures that had been made. He refused to consider the offer for a. min ute, and declares his unchanged resolve to prosecute to the end the search for the men who stole his boy. 'I received a letter about 10 days ago," said Mr. Cudahy. "It was dated April 15, at Elgin, and bore the Elgin post mark. I cannot show It to you because I sent it to Mr. PInkerton; nor can I give you Its contents verbatim, as I did not . make a copy of It. It was very brief, and recited that the chief kidnaper had communicated with the writer, and was getting uneasy. It set forth that the ehase by the detectives was getting un comfortably close, and asked if I would "withdraw the offer of reward now out standing, and let up on the effort to find the criminals, 'and have $21,000 of the $23,- 000 ransom returned to me. "It seems that the writer got somewhat in a hurry, for as soon as he mailed the letter he must have slipped right over to Chicago, where he called on my brother, Michael, the same day, which was two weeks ago today. He asked my brother whether I -would consider a proposition of that kind. My brother told him that he did not know anything about it, but would ask me to come over to Chicago and talk the matter over, althugh he did not believe that I would consider it. That afternoon I received a telegram from my brother, asking if I could come over, and 1 replied that I would be over there In the morning. I left here on the afternoon train, and on reaching Chicago I learned what had transpired at that end of the line. I arrived home Thursday, and the letter from Elgin was here awaiting me. "The letter was signed and gave direc tions how a reply should be addressed to reach the writer at Elgin. I do not wish to make that public, as assurances were given that I would not, and that the party could submit such proposition as he de sired to make. So far as the offer Is concerned, It has been rejected. I refused absolutely and unqualifiedly to consider It, and am determined to prosecute this search as vigorously as I know how. That is what we started out to do, and I feel as If I would follow those men to the end of the earth. I realize that this means $46,000 to me, and that Is a sum that Is certainly an object to any man, no matter what may be his means. As I feel about the matter, I would spend my last $1000 rather than compromise with the criminals. I am desirous of having them punished for what they have done, and to deter any other daring gang from compelling other parents to undergo what we ha.ve undergone." BAD FOR EASTOIAK. Some Evidence Introduced Favor able to the Prosecution. CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 30. The pen. dulum of evidence In the Eastman murder trial today swung slightly over to the state's side of the case through a fa vorable decision In the morning and some expert testimony late In the afternoon tending to show that the bullet taken from Grogan's body came from a center fire revolver, although Eastman in his many statements said that the accident took place while he had an old rim-fire revolver in his hands. Members of Gro gan's family testified that Eastman had said that he was not on good terms with Grogan. The expert testimony offered on the composition of the rim-fire and center fire cartridges was of Interest, as Profes sor Wood, of Harvard, who had made an examination, testified that he had found tin in the fragment of bullet taken from Grogan's body, which corresponds with the composition of the center-fire bullet, while the rim-fire bullet was of pure lead. John Grogan, brother of the dead man, described a quarrel between Eastman and Richard Grogan In November, 1S99, when Grogan told Eastman that he was tired of feeding Eastman and his family. East man was In the act of raising a chair when witness put his foot on It .and stepped between the men. Eastman with drew, saying to Richard Grogan: "I will plug you If I have to wait five years for this." Eastman repeated this declara tion twice. two volumes. On the inside of the cover was a depression three Inches square, snugly fitted wlth tae 15 blocks. These blocks are made variously of lead, wood or pasteboard. All the blocks are in pairs, -except one, which is a rhomboid; and all are exactly proportional, the sides being . either , half an Inch, an Inch and ehalfor-two Inches In length. The blocks of Chinese children are not used, as in our kindergartens, simply to familarize the child with geometric fig ures. The more specific purpose of the 15 magical blocks is to picture scenes of history and myth that will have a moral (and Intellectual effect on the budding brain. Of course, Chinese children build houses, bridges and wagons Just as. ours do, but primarily their blocks are Intend ed lor education. The first picture ray child visitor built for men that afternoon was a dragon horse. I asked him to tell me about it. The little fellow explained that this was the.dragon horse of Fu HsL Fu HsI was the original ancestor of the Chinese peo ple, and he saw this animal emerge from the depths of the Menc River. On the hack of the dragon horse Fu HsI descried a map containing 55 spots. These 55 spots represent the male and female principles of nature, and out of them the ancient sage used to construct what are known as the Eight Diagrams. PETTIGREW AT WORK.

The ninth session of the grand court of Oregon, Foresters of America, will be held in this city May 14-16. In addition to the election of of ficers to serve for the next two years,, there will be two supreme representatives elected to represent the grand court of Oregon at the supreme court conven tion to be held in Baltimore on the fourth Tuesday in August. The jurisdiction of Oregon is composed, of 24 subordinate courts, all of which are' In good standing. The past term has been most prosperous, both in membership and finances, A net gain of nearly 100 per cent has been made in membership, while there is now nearly $10,000 in the treas uries of the subordinate courts.

He "Will Try Hard to Be Returned to Senate in 1003. WASHINGTON, April 29. According to Senator Kyle, of South Dakota, bis late colleague, the vicious Pettlgrew, has not retired from public life, but. has begun a systematic fight for re-election to the Sen ate two years hence. Mr. Kyle says It is a grievous mistake to think that Pettlgrew will remain in retirement. The term of Senator Kyle expires in 1903, and -It la at this time that Pettlgrew hopes to re sume his place in the Senate. The for mer admits that he will have -a hard race, as Pettlgrew is a stubborn and persistent fighter, who unquestionably has a -large following in the state. The campaign of last Fall, which brought about the down fall of Pettlgrew, it is admitted, was largely assisted by the presidential cam paign, which of Itself did much to carry the state for the Republicans. Two years from now there will be no national In fluence at work. At the" same time if the present prosperity in South Dakota con tinues. Senator Kyle, who Is to be a can didate to succeed himself, hopes to win out over Pettlgrew. This announcement of Pettigrew's- activity in his own behalf Is somewhat of a surprise to many poli ticians In Washington, who had come to believe that he would remain lnaotive for a time at least. However, those who know him best, and recognize In him a man of boundless energy and persistence, are not surprised to learn of his present activity, and in fact would have been surprise", had the defeated Senator lost a single oppor tunity to strengthen his own cause.

April 29. Representa tive Babcock, of Wisconsin, after a trip of several weeks through the West, where he went to look Into industrial condi tions generally, has returned to Washing ton more than ever convinced of the wis dom of his bill introduced late in the last session of Congress, removing the tar iff duties on steel and Iron products that are manufactured cheaper In this country than anywhere else. "It Is not material," said he, in discuss ing the bill, "whether it Is an individual or combination of Individuals that have obtained control of any single product, so that they can fix any prices they see fit and nifrkc the consumers pay that price. Congress and the representatives of the people will fall short of their duty if they permit a tariff to remain on such articles when the tariff Is not needed for protection on the lines advocated by the Republican party. This is by no means the Democratic theory. It Is in accord ance with the Republican theory of pro tection to American industries. When an article can be manufactured cheaper in this country than It can be made any where else, that industry needs protection no longer. If the Republican party falls to meet the new conditions. Its whole the ory of protection falls to the ground. "There is a difference, for example, be tween steel and sugar. Sugar demands protection to develop the beet-growing In dustries of the West, and for the cane growers of the South. Furthermore, su gar furnishes more revenue than any oth er article on the tariff schedule. Sugar should continue to receive protection un der the Republican policy. Steel and Iron manufactures not only produce no revenue to speak of, but It Is" a fact that they can be manufactured cheaper in the Unit ed States than in any other country. This is due to improved methods in the devel opment of American machinery and In ventions, and to the skill of American workmen. . ' "During my absence from Washington In the West I talked with the represen tatives of many of the largest interests of the country. I have not-met a single manufacturer who did not Indorse this movement. The only opposition I have en countered comes from a class of people who look upon the tariff with a reverence to be paid a Chinese joss to be admired, but not touched. The farmers and the laboring classes are deeply interested in this question. It is impossible for them to understand how these great aggrega tions of capital come about. This ques tion will be brought squarely to the Re publican party In the next campaign: Why do you permit a tariff to remain on articles which can be produced here cheaper than elsewhere? What answer will be made to that proposition? "It has been suggested to me by one or i to express one's thoughts easily andvcon vinclngly is a valuable accomplishment. It is probable also that to ati extent" the ability to converse well may be acquired, but able talkers, like the great poets, are born and not made. The "gift of the gab" Is with some men a birthright.

Cox to His Fellow-Men.. PORTLAND, April 29. (To' the Editor.) This community and this state has late ly lost by untimely death a most worthy citizen, and although The Orcgonlan, and. lastly, the members of the bar, have made fitting public acknowledgment of the event In the only way they can make It aside from Individual action, it seems to me that the influences of his short life upon the rising generation should not be permitted to be lost In our rapid dally whirl of business and enterprise. It was my pleasure to know Mr. Cox but com paratively a short time, scarcely a year, and yet In that short space I learned quickly to admire and love him, not only for his business integrity and enterprise, but also for his personal traits of char acter so far above the average, as revealed to me in my Intercourse with men during a life of over 60 years. But It Is more particularly I want to write of his splen did example on his sick bed, of fortitude and faith in things present and things to come. Here was a man, entirely possessed of all his mental faculties, on a sick bed. afflicted with a malady which he wa3 entirely aware could only result In death in a short time; nay, at any moment, dis playing a calm fortitude scarcely par alleled, surrounded by a lovely wife and beautiful children, in the prime of man hood, impressed with a fervent desire to nve ana ueneuL ni3 leuow-men; assurea ot j . , ... . , . , ,,. : a prosperous cause in the lines of Uus!- ?T " wl t 2!! , d no nr,A -, om .ii ,,!

Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets produce strong nerves, restful, refreshing sleep, pure blood and good, sound, healthy flesh. They maka the skin clear, the eyes bright, the mind cheerful. Stuart'9 Dyspepsia Tablets are a medi cine and more than a medicine. They di gest the food and make it easy of assimi lation, and they relieve the inflamed, dis eased condition of the membraneous lin ings and the glands of the stomach end bowels. They help the digestive organs over tha.hard places, and put them into a healthy, active-condition. They effect a quick and permanent cure.

Commercial Valne of Conversation. Chicago Tribune. The principal of one of the Chicago Public Schools has just published a book in which he sets forth the value of conver sational power as a commercial asset. He points out that large salaries are paid to men who have conversational gifts, and that a young man will find few things of more value than the ability to express himself fluently and forcefully. Inciden tally the professor sets forth the methods which he has adopted in teaching his pu pils In the public schools to converse. There can be no question that the ability ' clouds will have passed away." O sublime fortitude! O universal love! O transcendant faith! Tell me not, ye scoffers, that there is nothing beyond this ! vale of tears! That when a man dies his eternal existence is at an end! In thinking of Mr. Cox, the words of the poet, J. G. Holland, came to my mind, and are reproduced here: God give us men! A time like this demands Strong minds, great hearts, true faith, and ready hands. Men whom the lust of office will not kill. Hen whom the spoils of office cannot buy. Men who possess opinions and a will.

To his dearly beloved wife comes the great hope of every believing soul that the Joys of Paradise are his, and while she mourns she finds comfort in teaching to his children his great example, and which is found in these words of another poet, Leigh Hunt: Abou Ben Adhem (may his tribe Increase!)

And, with a look made, of all sweet accord. Answered, "The names of those who love the Lord." "And Is mine one?" said Abou. "Nay, not so," Replied the angel. Abou spoke more low, But cheerily still, and said, "I pray thee, then, "Write me as one that lov3 his fellow-men." The angel wrote, and vanished. The next night blessed.

From the midts of the foliage looks out a dead branch, but the crown is rich In leaves and the foliage is greener than that of Its neighbor: it gives promise of abun dant blossoming in its eight buds, and its color Is deep dark red and white In Irregular gay variegation.
