A. B. CONLEY,
A SILENT WANDERER
Acting Express Agent O. V. Bear, is
busy today exhibiting to cat ers at the i x
press office, a fireman's heirr.et. .This
hat will have a history al.-ezdy written by
the time its journey is complete, but when
that date occurs is most awfully uncer
tain. The helmet, according to inscribe! in
s'.ructians, was sent out by the Wei's
barto Express company of San Fiancisco
and is the proptrty of a valiant fireman
who endured all the hardships of the San
Francisco fire and earthquake. The fol
lowing inscription is pasted on tne hat:
"Please return this hat to the San Fran
cisco fi;e dejartment in care of Wells
Fargo Ferry depot. This helmet has an
swered its purpose in the awful quake
and fire of April 18, so please donot kee;j
but send along." Needless to say it has
been "sent along" and at every stop, tags
cards and various trinkets have been at
tached with appropriate "speeches." At
Pendleton, where it came from to this
city, Lee Morehouse had performed a
unique hi. nor to this emblem of heroism,
by photographing a Umatilla Indian en
robed in feathers and carrying the helmet
o.i his head, and attaching the card , to
the wanderer. There are already hun
dred of names of cities written on tags on
In Portland and other large cities, par
cels containing contributions to the origin
al owner, were attached and are yet in
tact From this city, after proper in
scription, it will be forwarded to the next
station and so on until a complete circuit
of the globe has been covered. Justwha.
inscriptian Agent Bear will tack on has
not yet been decided, but when he gets
his poetic brain matter in working order,
he will "hatch" up something appropriate
Many and varied are the inscriptions i.
now carries. Frai K Martin, local agent
helper, this morning composed the follow
ing and tied it on among the rest:
"This world I've traveled over,
Through Washington and Idaho,
And now I'm in La Grande.
I went upon my journey.
To see if I could find,
The man who invented 'Work',
For he's no friend of mine."
The hat tags' and all are now displayed
in the Al Andrews furnishing store and is
attracting the attention of pedestrians on

Portland, a young employee of the Port

funds. He started in with a small theft
and latter becoming infatuated with the
