FATHER HIEIEBRAND'S TRANSLATION Shows Coin To Be of Ancient Date Other Relics Picked Up But Many Long Since Loet. Frank Busch, who la known far and wide as one of Oregon Clty'a live business men, came to thla . country from the German Empire when a young man. But he waa not so young but that he had seen service In the German army as do all young men who do not emigrate while yet very young. The atory told by Mr. Busch con cerning what he saw as an aide to his colonel has much to Interest young men, and especially those of German descent. Among other things he has this to aay: "By the treaty of Berlin, made In 1878, the PowerB authorized Emperor Francis Joaeph to occupy Bosnia and Herzegovina, two northern Btatea of the Ottoman Empire. At that time insurrection, anarchy and general law lessness prevailed throughout this whole territory and the Sick Man of the BOBphorous waa utterly unable to restore order. In consequence the old Emperor sent eight thousand of his best fighters Into this very little known country, and they were never seen again. He sent a second army, but this was sent 80,000 strong and then there was fighting In earnest. In this second army was our towns man, Frank Busch, who waa then a young man, serving out his military duty In the First Imperial and Royal Ingeneut Regiment. To his company was assigned the work of building roads and fortifications always in the front and while serving In this ca pacity he often found relics that have a history and value. While excavating for the purpose of building . fortifica tions on the River Drlna, In the town of Ustl Callna, Mr. Busch found a bunch of old coins . An opening an old Roman grave which was covered with a monster black marble stone 4 feet thick and 6 feet wide and 10 feet long he found a handful of old coins and ear charms. One of the coins he haa left and the inscription, translated by Pev. Father Htllebrand. reads as foJIowa: Inscrip tion around head "Imperator Galer tus Valerius IJclnianus Pontlfox Max Imus Aug." Abrevlaled Imp. G. vr. IJclnianus P. F. Aug. Born A. D. 2C3 of peasant parents. Married sister of Maxlmlnlanus and Constantlne iu. Waa strangled 323. The Inscription on the reverse of theoln "Tovl Con servator!; To Jupitet the Protector. Other graves were destroyed ry ex cavating and contained petrified skulls and bones, fragments of Roman wea pons and any amount of copper coma anij household ; utensils were -found. In one spot ashes and charcoals Indi cated this to be an ancient Roman -settlement. The Inscription on all stone worn was well preserved. After three years of service in tne front line Mr. BviBch was. given his honorable discharge as Sergeant Ma jorcalled Fcldwebel In German. He was once slightly wounded on his lefj shoulder with the butt of a rifle In a hand to-hand fight In Nov! Bazaar. When the troops marched into tnia Ottoman Empire there were no maps to go by and the troops of which- Mr. Busch was one had to march in with- . . , , . .. n.i.r. (ri ,1 II O- out knowing wnem B n. or what they were to encounter u was a leap In the dark, so to speak. Th. nnntr was not civilized; It was a wild section all througn. anu ir engineering corps was always In the van to prepare the roads for the army proper. Sometimes the corps was in the wildest of country, not knowing what was going to happen next. As Mr. Busch looks back on his life at that time he sees how little he and those with him knew of the possibili ties of the country. The hills were full of all kinds of metals but the peo ple were not permitted to mine them. The country was in no better condi tion than now, and today it la one of the worst governed countries In the wftrlft. Mr. Busch picked up many curios at different ttmea in hla career as a soldier but aa he had no way to care for them they were soon lost or stolen. One coin which he retains has more than ordinary lntereat to those who gather rare things, and we give here with an Illustration ahowlng Ita con dition today. It Is deecrtbed earlier In this article and lta Inscription shows It to be very old. It Is only one of many but jt la on or the best preserved among those Mr. "Busch has. DIRECTORS' MEETING..

Battery Failed to Explode Dynamite Monday Laat - STONE, Or., Jan. 31. (Spl.) The oil well at Stone, which waa to have been shot on Monday, did not tear things to any considerable extent. For some reason the dynamite did not ex plode, and those who claim to know say It waa from lack of battery strength In the dynamo. The dyna mite la aald to be In place all. right, and that there Is plenty for the work once It goes off, but from lack of bat tery strength It doesn't go off.

BOWERMAN LEACER OF 0PP0STTO Abraham's Attempt to Put Burden On Shoulders of Labor Commiasloner la Defeated and Bill Now Facea Fight In Houae. SALEM, Or.. Jan. 31. (Staff Cor respondence.) By a vote of 20 to 6, with three members absent and one excused from voting, the Senate thla morning, after a furious debate lasting more than an hour, passed Dlmlck' bill providing that In factories operat ing 23 hours a day or more employe shall not be permitted to work more than eight hours Id a calendar day. Senator Dlmlck was confident that the bill would pass the Senate, but even he waa surprised at the majority for the measure, as there was consid erable antagonism manifested, mostly on the part of Senator Bowerman.

Barrett, Bean, Hoa kins 3. - Excused Chase. , The bill came up aa a special order for. 10:30 o'clock this morning, when Itanick made a strenuous argument In favor of Its passage. "I Intrdoduced this 'bill," he aald, on behalf of the laboring element of this state, and at the request of a great many of the laboring class liv ing In my district. I live among these men, associate with them, see them every day, and I know of the condi tions that exist. I refer to the condi tions that exist in the paper and pulp mllla of Oregon City. "There never haa been a time la the history of progressive legtalatlon where the legislature has attempted -to regulate the corporation without -encountering opposition, and the oppo sition to thla bill cornea principally from the Willamette Pulp Paper Co.. which Is worth perhaps 110,000, 000. This concern started In 1889, with a capital of $250,000, and Ita 14 hour shifts have resulted In Immense profits. There la something further In thla measure than mere commer cialism mixed up In it. Where Is there a drayman In thla state who would work his home aa many hour a day as the Oregon City paper mllla do their employes? They would be re ported by the humane aocletlea t the courts, and yet the representative of this corporation who have been here lobbying will stand up and tell you this bill Is class legislation. "Last Saturday and Sunday when I was home I made a peraonal Investi gation of these conditions and I found that between 50 and 75 men started to work at 7 o'clock Sunday morning and worked through without a break for 24 hours until 7 o'clock Monday morning.
