LaGkakbx, Or., Kov. 4 A robbery
which exceeded the recent Enterprise
affair, in the amount taken, was perpe
trated upon the Farmers mortgage and
aavinics bank of SummerviHe, a village
three milea from Elgin, on the branch of
the the Union Pacific, sixteen miles
north of this city. As the mails reach
the village late in the evening and early
in the morning, it was the custom of H.
C. Rinehart, cashier ot the bank to at
tend to his correspondence after supper.
As he was leaving the bank about nine
o'clock, last evening he was met at the
door by two men, with sacks over their
heads, who pressed pistols to his bead
and ordered bim to go back and open
the safe. He stepped back into the
room and they followed hlin, palling
down the blinds, and lighting the lamps.
They displayed great coolness not only
taking all the money in the safe but ex
amining the papers as well.
The Hailroad) in Politics.
Chicago, Nov. 6 Railroads in the
Ti e Oregon City board ot trade last
Monday night instructed its committee
on road.) and highways to take step to
raise funds and to employ a surveyor to
examine the country penetrated by the
road lo Molallu and Marquam Willi the
view to buildinir a good and durable
wagon road through that country. The
commiitee consist! of 11. E. Cross, D.
C. Latourette, J. G. Pillsbury, C. O. T.
Williams and J. T. Apperson.
Vice President C. 0. T, Williams oc
cupied the chair in the absense of the
president. After the approval of the
minutes and the reading of several com
munication Geo. C. Brownell and W.
H. Burkhart were elected members.
Then it was voted, though rather faint
heartedly, to buy one inch of advertis
ing space in the weekly Cotton and Wool
Reporter three months for 16.
The road question came op on motion
of Postmaster Bands and there waa a
general discussion of the subject. It
was asserted that by putting four or five
f the roads leading to Oregon City in
proper condition so that there could be
traffic of them at all seasons of the year
the retail trade of this city would be
doubled. The impassible condition of
the county thouroughfares is the cause
of keeping farmers who sell produce
and buy groceries and drygoods and
clothing away from Oregon City, many
of tnem finding better though much
longer roads to Portland and others pre
ferring to deal at the nearest railway
station rather than brave the hardships
and dangers or the shockingly bad
The discussion was along the line sug
gested in last week's E.ntkbpbise.
The idea is to take op all the important
roads leading to this city, one at a time,
and make a good job of each. The road
toIMolalla and Marquam, being con
sidered, most important just now, was
proposed for the first teeatmcnt and a
motion was unanimously carried in
structing the enmmittee as noted above.
A motion was carried asking the co-operation
of the people of Molalla and Mar
quam and residents of the intermediate

Sub Arouls of THE LONDON CHEQUE BANK,
The steamship company reports that
since the treaty went into effect it has
had to charter three extra steamers, be
sides the regular sailings, and that every
ship, without exception, has gone out
full. The shipments of machinery for
the manufacture of sugar have been
greater than ever known before. J udg'
ing from present indications, the com'
pany anticipates that, when the treaty is
fully in force, it will have to increase the
number of its sailing, or largely increase
the capacity of its ships.
The Brazilian congress has fixed the
salary of the president at G0,000 per
year, and that of the office of vice-pre
sident at 18,000.

The Cirent Northern Work.
New York, Nov. 9. An officer of the
Great Northern is quoted as saying:
The report that the line from Spokane
west is to be changed is entirely untrue.
The route already laid out by the Great
Northern has had considerable money
spent on it, and there is not likely to be
any change that would result in throwing
this mnnevawav. If anything is) aone
in regard to the Portland branch, it
may be that President Hill will buy the
Union Pacific interest in the ngtitot way
If the Great Northern cares to do this it
will find the Union Pacific quite willing
to sell. I do not think that it will be
done at present, however, as the money
for railroad building is not lying around
on the eround. even with the Great
Astoria Or. Nov. 6 The British ship
Stratblane, sixteen days from Honolula,
in ballast, went ashore twenty-five miles
north of Astoria at 5 o'clock Tuesday
morning. She is a total wreck. She
lies abreast of Shoalwater bay, Wash
ington, well up on the sand, the masts
and rigging gone, and hull fast going to
pieces. In an hour the Cape Hancock
life saving crew and a large number of
men from Ilwaco reached the scene of
the wreck on a special train. It was
low water when the vessel struck, and a
heavy gale blowing. The life crew
worked bravely and the men went up to
their necks in waves. One boat load of
men came ashore and reported twenty-
three more on board . The waves were
sweeping clear over the vessel. , All were
got safely ashore except six, who were
drowned. Captain Cathill, Richard
Hughes, carpenter; Thomas Hunter,
cook ; Donald McLeod, seamen ; a pas
senger, a lawyer from Honolula, Win.
Lewis, and another man. Four bodies
were recovered. The wreck was due to
a faulty chronometer which led the cap
tain astray in his reckoning, and the
New York, Nov. 8 The Brazilian
news, via Valpariaso, is to the effect that
the new dictatorial government has
prohibited the holding of public meetings
until all signs of uneasiness have passed
away. Newspapers are commanded not
to publish any remarks about Foneeea s
dissolution of congress or dictatorial
proclamation. There are many eviden
ces of the republican party being dis
gusted with the president's acts. Baron
de Lucena is the only one of the ministry
remaining in Fonseca's cabinet, and he
is regarded as an unperhalst. Both the
army and navy continue to uphold Fon
seca iu the new role. The rumored up
rising in Rio Janeiro seems to have died
out, according to the latest news from
