The tremendous growth of Oregon

The furtiier fact was elicited that
Mrs. Gordon waa bundled up more

The engineer testified at the inquest,

Drs. A. E. Rockey, father and son,
Portland, performed a delicate and
tinuHtial operation on the two-day old
son of Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Rivera, of
Sixth atreet, Wednesday.
The child waa but two daya old at
time of operation and la seemingly on
the road to recovery. The case Is a
peculiar one. Thla la the firth child
born to Mr. and Mra. Rivera, and la
the first one to live.' All before have
been still-born, of abnormal presenta
tion, and no Instance has there been
an opportunity to save life. Instru
ments were necessary in the case of
thla youngster; all have been boys.
The little fellow was born without
a rectal orifice. Thla waa not noticed
by the nurae, and Dr. Stuart was ao
busy with the mother after the deliv
ery that he did not note It till he came
to examine the little fellow the next
day. Thla made necessary an opera
tionchild two days old and he was
at once taken to St Vincent'a hospital,
Portland, the Dr. Rock called In to
assist, and the work waa done the sec

When the operation was performed
It wa found that there wa no pro

Just after the bank opened yester
day morning two men came In. one of
them presenting a check on a bank
at Solo,- Linn county, and drawn by C. '
W.. Beard. The men were unknown
and Cashier F. J. Meyer declined to
cash tbe paper, . unless he received
telegraphic Instructions from tbe ScIo
banking Institution. Thla the man
said he would obtain and left the bank
with hla companion.
Not long afterwards, tbe constable
at Sclo telephoned Mr. Latourette. at
the bank, to bold a man posing as C
W. Beard, in case he came Into the
bank, and no sooner bad the conver
sation ceased than the telephone rang
again, and a man'a vole asked Miss
Cbarman if the bank had received tbe -telegram.
Thinking it waa the Sclo
officer, and that he meant telephone.
Instead of telegram. Miss Charman
answered that the message had been
received, and In a few minutes In
walked the forger to get his money.
Instead he waa met by Charles E.
Hums.. who had been called In br Mr.
Latourette, and the crook was prompt
ly taken to the county Jail, where be
will be held awaiting papers from Linn
county, where he la aaid to have
swindled the Sclo bank out of 125.
Miss Charman had Jto Idea that
Beard waa telephoning about hla own
telegram, or that- ahe waa unknow
ingly assisting him to get Into Jalt
When questioned, the man broke down
and confessed. He waa recently pa
roled from the Oregon atate peniten
tiary, and It la aaid hla corect name Is
Harry. C. Beard, and that he haa a
brother named C W. Beard, who. may
