New York, May 10. James Gordon
Bennett, editor and proprietor of the
New York Herald, ' reached his TOth
nileatone today, having been born May
10, 1841. Mr, Bennett enjoys life in
Europe. Of late year his visits to New
York have become fewer and farther
between, although he "Is the Herald"
as of old. ThoBe who met him on his
last visit h?re noticed that time deals'
kindly with him. He still has the
bright aggressive face and the big
determination of character that was
stamped upon his brow when he was
a more familiar figure in the streets
of New York that he Is today.
PORTLAND MAN RELIEVES JOB

GeU Cash Bond and Gives la Return
a Bogus Letter and Address. -'
Confidence games of the rare sort
fade Into insignificance as ' compared
with a trick alleged to have been turn
ed at Portland and having Its. climax
here yesterday when a man giving his
name as Murphy told the sheriff's of
fice here that he had been' "done" out
of $107 in as neat a way as' comes to
the attention of crook catchers. Mur
phy story is inconsistent In many
places and the sheriff's office is unde
cided whether or -not to believe him.
Murphy made his appearance before
Sheriff Childers yesterday and-he ex
plained that In Portland a day or two
before he had given a cash bond of
$107 in return of letters addressed to
a man named Miller, 'latir discovered
to be a bogus name, and also that Mur
phy was to take full charge of the'
ranch near La Grande, pay the hired
help, write the checks and to be an
all around boss. Check books' were
even supplied him with which to work
when he got to La Grande. The let
ter to "Mr." Miller La Grande, Ore
gon," was certainly a warm commen
dation of Murphy's character. It gave
him complete charge of the place, and
Mrwk. wm 1100 to commence
with and: then draw down $125 a
month a little later on.
In order to assume all these respon
sibilities Murphy was required to post
a bond of $107. This was given in cash
and received by a man named Hogan,
who gave np receipt but sent Murphy
on his way to La Grande.
Arriving here no Miller could be
found; no farm could be found that
suited the conditions and Murphy then
commenced to see light, or rather
; He carried his grief Co the sheriffs
office, yet in telling his story he af
firmed that his money paid to Hogan
was checked on a bank with a name

This is the play that Portland
went wild over this week
the season and everyone
should see it
entirely new to local banking circles.
Other incidents give a color of mys
tery to the fellow and there is little
light on the subject yet. Murphy
wanted the local authorities to order
Hogan's arrest, but this was not done
)is Murphy said he was going to Port
land last night.
It's a simple matter of dolVs and
cents to you, this clothes question.
