Poiitlasi), Ore., April 22. Within 20
feet of the alicrifl, where that official anil
score of deimtieit were busily enaxeil
in the collection of taxes, within the
presence almcHtl of a hundred others
variously eri-ai;ed I" snd shout the
eouiily cotirthnuM) Charles It. Malurkey,
an SHniatant in the ollice of his father,
Chhrles It. Marklcy, county treasurer,
whh khot down fU vluy afternoon by
murderous aaaailant, the vault rohhed
of all its valuable contents, and two
hours before the atrocioua act was dis
covered the thief and would-be murderer
It is the boldetit attempt at robbery
ever made in the city, and when it he
came known created an iminenhe senaa
tion. So far the identity of the robber
aMKUHMin is enveloped in mystery, but
the detectives atUched to the central
police station, keenly alive to the situa
tion, are hard at work on various clues,
with a promise of tangible results.
Young Malarftey's wound is not con
sidered fatal, and at last accounts he
was lestiiiK easily. The amount stolen
by the robber is variously estimated at
from fiKX) to 12000, but cannot be defi
nitely determined until the books are
. near as can be ascertained, the
rohliery and shooting occurred at 1 -30
1. M., immediately alter young Maiarkey
had returned from lunch. It was about
that lime that several persons in various
ixjnioui of the building were startled by
the report of a pistol, coming from no
one knew just where. One or two
persons had enough curiosity to look
around for the cause of the noise, but
finding everything quiet, returned, to I
their duties without comment. It was
not until County Treasurer Malarkey
returned from lunch about 3:30 o'clock
that the crime was discovered. It was
he who first entered the ollice and found
the prostrate form of his son beside the
looted vault, lie at once raised the
alarm. The word was passed from
mouth to month, and in a surprisingly
short time the court bouse and grounds
were thronged with excited meu and

"I returned from lunch about 1 :30
o'clock, as near ai I can now remember
As I entered the courthouse door I no
ticed that a man was following me up arid
passed into the office when I opened the
door. There he presented a 1 20 gold
piece and asked me if I could favor him
with small change. I did so and taking
$15 in gold and $5 in silver from the
vault, and when I turned to close the
same, I was surprised to see the man
immediately behind me and confronted
me with an order to 'hold np my hands!'
"I hardly knew what to think of it. I
thought it must he a joke, but when the
command was given for a second time I
gave up a" idea of its beinn a joke, uuj
endeavored to edge off irom the fellow
in the hope of reaching the door; but
the order to 'hold up' came troniMy for
the third lime, and tho man presented a
pistol, fired the weapon and I fell in
front of the vault. What hapiened after
that I cannot distinctly remember, but
suffering from the shock of the wound I
received and in a semi conscious state,
as near as I can remember, my assailant,
after firing the shot, rushed into the
vault, then in a moment reappeared and
made his exit out of the window on the
west sido of the office upon Fifth street."
T1IK WOULD-BE A8SA88AI.N.
Mr. Maiarkey gives the following de
scription of his assailant : A man be
tween 25 and 30 years of age, about 5
eet 7 inclieis in height, and very broad
shouldered. He bus dark hair and com
plexion and smooth face, except for a
four or five davs' growth of beard. He
wore a blue chinchilla coat with velvet
collar very much worn; blue overalls
and a white Blouch hat, with a notice
ably sweat-stained band.
TUB riSTOL FOUND.
Portland, April 23 All efforts to
capture the man who pillagod the county
treasurer's vault and shot Deputy
Charles B. Maiarkey last Saturday after
noon have thus far proved futile. The
police authorities may be aware of his
identity, but evidently are ignorant of
The only really new evidence that
came to light yesterday was the discovery
of the weapon used by young Malarkey's
assailant. It is aS2-caliber "bulldog"
revolver, and when picked up had but
one chamber empty. John D. Mann,
clerk of the criminal conrt, found the
weapon about 3:30 o'clock yesterday
afternoon as he was ascending a stair
case in the rear of the court bouse lead
ing to Judge Munley's chambers. It was
lying in the courtyard of the woman'
quarters of the jail, about 60 feet north
of the window through which the robber
is supposed to have made his escape,
and close to the door in the hlgb board
fence which inclosed the courtyard.
Portland, April 23. The all-absorbing
topic cont!nues to be the Maiarkey
assassination and robbery case and there
are conflicting rumors regarding it. A
few entertain the opinion that the wounds
of the young deputy are self-inflicted, j
while other say il is impossible that he '
could have done it. An expressman

Cleveland vi. Fenioysr
Wabiiinoton. Apr.l 24 An Oregon
democrat went into the postofiice depart
ment the other day lo inquire as to cei tain
poetoffices. Postmaster-General Biseel
went over the list of candidates and in
quired if any of them were Pennoyer
men. Upon being informed that some
of them had been friends of the govtrnur
he put a check mark upon every one. '
He then entered into a long inquiry as to
the probabilities of Pennoyer's chances
for the aenatorship. It is thus in every
department. Every man that Cleveland
has employed as cabinet officers are ex
tremely anxious to learn all about Pen
noyer and whether by any possibility,
be could come lo the senate. So intense
is the feeling in the different depart
ments that nearly every man who has
been a candidate for office has fell com
pelled to denounce Pen never in some
public manner, either in the public
prints or in conversation where there can
be no denial, if, at some future time, he
would be called upon to use his influence
against the governor.
A lotad I.vipapar Man.
Wabhinoton, April, 24, Frank Hat
ton, proprietor of the Washington Post,
was stricken with total paralysis this
afternoon at his desk. The attack is
very serious. He regained conscious
ness at 2 o'clock this alternoon, and at
9 o'clock tonight Dr. Stewart said he
was resting easily and was without pain.
The paralysis is confined to the right
side. He appears to be wholly conscious
of what transpires about him, but is un
able to articulate. Though the physi
cians hold out some hope, they con
sider the case case critical.

first news of the disaster was
M. The captain, who had retired, had
given orders to the third mate to call him
when a certain nnmber of revolutions of
the wheel had been noted. The mate
failed to do so, and the steamer went
the rocks at 9:15, and in ten minutes
she sank. Tbe captain Instantly or
dered out the lifeboats and a raft. Two
of the boats, containing about fifty men,
succeeded in reaching the shore. Two
others and a raft kept out to sea. Chief
Engineer Wallace, in charge of one of
the boats, saw the steamer Eureka, anil
succeeded in getting within hailing dis
tance. The steamer lay lo and sent out
boats to search for the other party.
Tbey soon found the raft, with saven
persons, whom they rescued, and this,
morning, about 7 o'clock, picked op the
other boat, containing fourteen more.
Tbey sent boats to those on shore, and
offered to take them aboard the steamer,
but, owing to the roughness of the surf,
they declined to attempt to board the
boats. Four dead bodies have been re

Portland, Or., April 23. Fire broke
out in the City Sc Suburban Railway
Company carshops, shortly before S
o'clock last night, and totally destrojed
the shops, their equipment, four cars,
and the adjoining residence of John
Schmurr. General Manager II. C.
Campbell estimates his company's loss
15500, covered by $4500 insurance. The
Schmurr residence was two and one-half
stories high, valued at $2500, and in
sured lor about $1500. Through the ef
forts of the neighbors, all of the house
hold effects were saved.
The origin of the fire is supposed lo
have been some defective electric wires.
W. S. Moat, a care'eaner, was working
in the south end of the building when
he saw the first bright tongue of flame
shoot np quite close to him. He shouted
an alarm to Assistant Superintendent
McGaw, who was standing in front of
the building, but before either of them
could even attempt to quench the flames
they were driven to the forward end of
the building. Car No. 31, with trailer
No. 16, were just ready to go out, and
they were quickly rolled into the street.
An effort was then made to save the re
maining cars, two of which were entirely
new, , but one of the folding-doors re
fused to open, and the men were driyen
into the open air by the flames before
they could accomplish their purpose.
The building was 100 feet long by 60
wide, a timber frame covered with cor
rugated iron. The flames spread rapidly
from the oil drippings from the cars,
with which the floor was thoroughly
soaked, and the iron covering very much
resembled a red-hot furnace until the
timbers gave way and it fell with a

Topeka, April 23. Judge Hazen, of
the district court, today decided tl e cel
ebrated case of the Reno Lodge vs. the
Grand Lodge, Independent Order of
Odd Fellows, giving an opinion that the
grand lodge has the right to levy a per
capita tax for the support of the Debor

county. The court recites that the
sovereign grand lodge duly authorized
such levy and the grand lodge of Kan

assessment. The decision is of national
interest and effects not only the order of
Odd Fellows but all secret ordeis.
