Wife W TWO MORE LIKE TRACY POSSE AND BL0DDH0UNDS TRAIL OP WASHINGTON FUGITIVES. ON Had a Running Fight With Them Early This Morning Men Are Known to Be Desperate Robbers and the Whole Country Is Ex cited President Schwab to retire from Business life. Walla Walla, Wash.. Aug. 18- With hlnndrinnnrls follnwino-1 hP scent of the two seemingly disci - pies of llarry Tracy, a posse isclose at their heels, and another battle is expected before tonight. Sheriff D. T. Taylor, of Umatilla county, and Deputy Sheriff Rorke, of Wal la Walla county, are at the head of the band that is bent upon captur ing the two men who have defied the law of two states for five days. Early this morning there was a run ning fight a few mile3 west of Low de a station, the desperadoes disap pearing in the brush after exchang ing shot3 with the sheriffs. Blood hounds were sent for from the Washington penitentiary, and when i tney arrived tne trail was again taken up at daylight. The robbers are known to be des perate, and it is believed they will fight doggedly when cornered. The posse expects to run them to earth Deiore aarxness tonignt. lhere is great excitement sll over the coun try, and farmers are on the watch for the fugitives. The first outlaw act in the fight of these desperate thugs was the shooting of Deputy Sheriff Scott Ritchie, which occurred Saturday afternoon at a small cabin in the hills six miles south by west of here. Ritchie, in company with two Hudson Bay farmers named Dickerson and Derric, formed an independent posse, Ritchie starting out from Milton and picking up the two ranchers on the way. It turned out that thev were the first of four posses in the field to strike the robber.-' trail, which they followed to the old cabin where it ended. Here Ritchie was left alone to fight it out with the outlaws, for one of the Hudson Bay men got "cold feet," and the other com plained of a rusty gun. So Ritchie, who thought the bold-ups would not show violence, bravely entered the house alone. As he came through the door, a shot greeted him, and seeing the game was up, the deputy turned and ran past the corner of the house. As he came1 in line with a small window in the side, one of the thugs shot him in the right leg, just above the knee, tearing a great gaping wound with a bulldog revolver bullet. ' Ritchie went down, but got to a place of refuge. He was unable to retali ate, because his gun, too, was rus ty, and refused to operate at will. Then when too late, the posse found it had come out very badly equip ped. Then came a denouement which for Tracy-iike audacity surpassed anything the hold-ups had yet done, even to the lined up of the men . in Hez Key's saloon. Coming boldly out from the cabin, they took the crippled deputy's steed and coolly rode off, both astride the animal, which they headed apparently for Touchet country. - . Pittsburg, Aug. 18. A special to the Pittsburg-Dispatch from Loret to, Pa,, says: President Charles M Schwab, of the United States steel corporation, has accepted tbe advice of his physicians and decided to re tire indefinitely from active business life. He will leave America to seek some quiet nook in a foreign clime where not an echoof the stren uous life he has led can reach him. This information is authentic. Dr. Golden never leaves the Schwab home, and the exact nature of his patient's condition cannot be learn ed through him. Mr. Schwab is not confined to his bed,-' but spends much of his time on the wide ve randa which affords fresh air and a sweeping view of the mountain slope. He is always with his wife or his parents. The strange part of Mr. Schwab's illness is that he is always within view of those who call at his home, yet he will not allow any person to approach him. Heretofore the vis itor to the Schwab home was greet ed with a hearty welcome, and a vigorous handshake. Now the vis- itois are met at the . entrance and are told that Mr. Schwab cannot be seen. Intimates of the family re ceive the same information, and no one is able to converse with Presi dent Schwab since he came back to his home. The presence of Sister3 belonging to the Order of Mercy in his house day and nignt since lnursday was another indication of illness. The nuns were not veiled, but it is gen erally known that they are nursing the man who has so many times befriended them and their institu tions. Mr. Schwab's destination will be kept a secret, and he will do noth ing but seek health until his nerves have been restored to their normal 1 condition, and his mind iullv re- lieved of the great strain resulting , Irom 80 many Dusiness cares ' T-f tit a a a fvaw 1aatm'iirr that his that he health was very bad. and intended to devote a year's time to recuperation that I passed into the grounds leading to the home on the mountain top," says the correspond ent. "Mrs. Schwab said that her husband would not see any person, and had not been seeing visitors for severaLdays. Mr. Scbwab sat on a ocuch within heaaing of our voices. A paper was before his eyes. He exhibited no interest, and made no attempt to move. "Business associates, it is said, have met with a similar reception during the past two days. Mr. Schwab has been directed by his doctors tofrid bis mind of all busi ness cares, and be is obeying tne orders religiously. Inquiry among the people of -the town who have conversed with the Schwabs fully corroborated the story that he in tends to retire from active business life. His friends, however, deny that if he leaves the United States Steel Corporation it will be at the dictation of any person than him self." Chicago, Aug. 16. OscarThomp spn was held to the grand jury by Judge Patton on the charge of hav ing murdered Mrs. Bartholin. At the same time, John Claffy, ths old stableman, who is better known as "Daddy," was held as an accessory after the fact to the murder of Miss Minnie Mitchell. Thompson also was held on this charge. Claffy's bond was fixed at $3,ooo, but th3 court declined to fix a bond for Thompson, as the murder charge on which he waived examination does not permit of accepting surety for the accused. The two men were taken to the county jail. No at tempt was made to give bond for Claffy, as the. primary object of the attorneys acting for him and Thompson was to get the 'prisoners out of the hands of Inspector Hunt and free from his "sweatbox" meth ods. Shortly before noon Attorney M. W. Meagher appeared before Judge Patton with a petition signed by Julius Aagard, Thompson's em ployer, for a writ of habeas corpus. Notice of the application was serv ed on Inspector Hunt immediately, with orders to bring- the prisoners into court at 2 o'clock. At that hour tbe inspector, accompanied by Chief O'Neill and Lieutenants Wood and Backus, appeared with the prisoners. Assistant City Pros ecutor Murray, representing the po lice, informed the court that Inspec tor Hunt was prepared to "book the prisoners" and make formal charge against them. On this Meagher agreed to withdraw his application for the prisoners release, and said they would waive examination on the charges filed against them. Pros ecutor immediately filed formal charges against Thompson and Claffy, which were supported in each case by an affidavit by John King accusing the two men. King is a policeman at the Englewood station, and he arrested Thompson. "There will be no attempt to give bond? for Claffy at this time," said Mr. Meagher. "Our desire was to have him and Thompson transferred to' the Hyde Park sta tion to the county jail, so that they will not be subjected to the 'sweat box' any more."

For ffhefae- iiails ggnature FOR PICKING HOPS i GROWERS ADOPT OLD SCHEDULE OF 40 CKfllTS. Hold This Is All They Can Pay, and More Than Former Returns Warranted A Costly Watch An ex-Slave Sells Himself Back into Bondage for '$1,000. Woodourn, Or., Aug. 14. Forty cents was fixed as the price for picking hops at a called meeting of the growers of this section held here today. A committee compos ed of James Winstanley, John F. Riseley and McKinley Mitchell brought in a report recommending this figure, which was unanimous ly adopted. The principal argu ment advancfd for maintaining the old price for picking was that here tofore growers have paid more than prices received have warranted. A- gain, many have contracted at pri ces ranging from 10 to 12 cents per pound, and an increased price would do them a great injustice. Further more, while present indications are for good prices, there is no reason that such values will rule when the hop crop is in the bale. A committee of three was ap pointed to confer with the various transportation companies for the purpose of inducing them to make a low rata of fare to hoppickers from Portland and other points. It developed during the discussion that pickers were and had been en gaged at 40 cents per box and that the supply promised to be ample, if not more than needed . Francis Feller, who went to London to the growers' pool last year, cautioned the meeting against "cross-packing," caused by carelessness in fill iug tbe baling hoper, thereby caus ing the bale to be wedged-shaped, especially noticeable when samples are drawn; also againsf 'false pack in grth1.eh.ia-iiothing- more nor less than mixing up the several grades. He advised keeping the several grades separate. New York Times: A watch said to be worth $10,000 is going the rounds of the pawnshops up town, and us yet has found lo purchaser. Since its owner hypothecated it, it has passed into the hands of sever al speculators, and the end of its peregrinations up to the present time has found it still lacking a purchaser. It was pawned some five years ago in an up-town pawn shop" for $2,200, and its owner, whose monogram is engraved pn the case, has never attempted to re deem it. It is said to be the most expensive watch ever manufactured in any country. Its works alone, it is estimaed by experts, are worth $4,000. They were put together by the most skill ed workmen in England. It re quired nearly a year to perfect the wonderful and delicate pieces of mechanism. There are eo many hands on the face of the watch it seems difficult to distinguish the time hands. It has, of course, the large time hands, second and split second hands, and double hair springs. Besides tbe large dials there are three smaller ones. It has a second dial, a minute repeat er, a minute register and a chrono graph. The jewels used in the works are of the most expensive kind, and there are nine of them in all. The watch weighs, case and alj, seven ounces four pennyj weights. The case is studded with 154 dia monds, 56 of which ate gems weigh ing from half to three-quarters of a caret. It required the buying of many, even three times that num ber, in order to select those of equal size. That, of course, has much to do with the high value of this watch. The largest etones are laid in a circle around both sides of the case, and when the watch is open ed the back of the stones set through the covers may be seen. They are not backed by anything that would give doubt as to their value. On the face cover the. initials of the owner are set with 98 emalller stones, reading "E. J. P." , Knoxville, Tenn., Aug. 14 Jer ry Logan, the aged janitor of the state supreme court, has sold him self to Gerald Stuart, clerk of the court, for $l,ooo. For this sum he agrees in a written contract to serve and obey Stuart as his legal master from now until the time of bis death, Logan has lately been wor ried by debts, which he will pay now from the sum to be paid him for his liberty. He- is an ex-slave, born of slave parents 6o years ago, and has many white friends of the old regime. Cardiff, Wales', Aug. 14 The South Wales Miners' fraternity has adopted a recommendation that the federation districts contribute $5o, ooo to assist the striking miners in the United States, on the ground that tney are contending for prin cipals of international importance. New York, Aug. 15. F. A. Strat- ton, vice-president of an electric light company in Westchester coun ty, this state, says murderers sen tenced to die in the electric chair are frequently not killed by the e- lectric current, and that they would be buried alive if it were not for the autopsy which follows the electro cution. Mr.- Stratton says: "Nearly every week we have men shocked bv higher voltage currents than are used in the electric chair in Sing Sing, yet they come around all right after a few days treatment. This being the case, is it not prob able that some of the murderers who are sentenced to the electric chair could be.resuscitated if they received prompt medical attention and the same care that is given to one of our -linemen after he met with an accident? I have often thought that a great many people who are supposed to have been elec trocuted are in reality buried alive. New York, Aug. 16. The depop ulation of New Hartford as the re sult of an order issued by the cot ton duck combination to shut down its Greenwood mills there on Sep tember 1 for an indefinite period, has begun in earnest, no less than 7oo people having left the town in side of two weeks, says a Winsted, Conn., special to the World. By the middle of next month it is esti mated that fully one-half of the population of the place, which is 35oo, will have left. - Placards reading "Closing out business" and "To rent" are H ready in store windows, and "For sale" signs are tacked on property everywhere. In the district known as Dublin, where several hundred of the mill operatives lived, there remains but a single family. Bus iness men already feel the effect and are planning to locate else where. Truckmen, however, are doing a big business hauling house hold goods to the railroad stations day and night. The Greenwood plant ia to be removed to Tallahassee, Ala., where according to an alleged statement of the Mount Vernon-Woodburry cotton duck combination, manufac turing can be done more cheaply. The business was established in New Hartford in 1833. Chicago, Aug. 17. Edward Coun selman, who was arrested yesterday in connection with the Bartholin Mitchell murder mystery, was sub jected to a rigid examination today, but told nothing that would throw any light on the case. Counsel man contradicted himself several times. The most magnificent circum stance developed was the fact that he had repeatedly visited Bartholin at his home, twice without tbe knowledge of the young man's mother, who had ordered him to stay away from the hou3e. After an hour's questioning, Counselman finally blurted out: "If I knew where William Bar tholin was I would not tall you." Counselman evaded an explana tion of why he abused his wife when she refused to return to him the letter that he had received from Bartholin July 11, summoning him to Bartholin's home, five days after the murder of Mrs. Bartholin.

Iron Ores Along Northern DiscoVk ered Manganese That Was Neces- sary to Smelt them Big Indus try Is Promised Trust Has No Cinch Other News. Great Falls, Mont., Aug. 17.- President J. J. Hill, of the Great Northern Railway Company, who visited this city last Wednesday, will erect a monster steel and iron ; plant, for which plans have been drawn, according to information from those close in touch with the railway magnate. Wednesday night it has developed, Mr. Hill purchas ed a half interest in the Conrad iron mines, of Choteau county, for $25,ooo. The mines lie in the sweet Grass Hills and constitute a verit able mountain of the mineral. There is enough iron ore in eight to keep an ordinary plant supplied loo years, according to mu 8 experts who have examined the property. V. G. Conrad, owner of the mines, has confirmed the report of the sala to Hill. One factor which has been lack ing in the reduction of the iron ore to, metal has been manganese, which is neeessary.as a flux in the smelt ing of the ore. To overcome this difficulty, President Hill, together with United States Senator Paris Gibson, has purchased the recently discovered deposits of manganese in Jefferson county, on the line of the Great Northern. Seventeen thousand dollars were paid to Ira. Meyers, of Great Falls, for the prop erty. Mr. Hill and his party in ; spected the manganese deposits Friday, and Hill expressed himself in high terms regarding the 'show ing made. Before leaving Great Falls Mr Hill JHade the remark that he would, , establish an industry in Great Falls that would employ more men than a number of the railroads. Along the line of the Great North- ern system, Mr. Hill has been ac quiring deposits, paying tor one group near tbe Spokane & Northern $6o;ooo. This deal was made through J. D. Farrell, president of the Pacific CoastCompany. Cordell, O. T., Aug. 17. A mob of eeveral hundred men took Levi Reed and Bud Wingo, outlaws cap tured recently in a raid on the Casey-Cravens gang, from the county jail here late last night and strung them up to trees to force them to reveal the whereaboutsof their lead ers and to give information regard ing their crimes. The outlaws fin ally gave the desired information and the mob returned them to jail, disappearing, apparently to run down the gang. Keed was eo badly strangled that he was revived with difficulty. Tbe Casey-Crav ens gang is one ot tne worst mat infest3 this part of the countrv. Re cently they have committed many outrages in Southern Oklahoma. Des Moines, Ia., Aug. 16. A man believed to have been William J. Bartholin, the Chicago suspect, was in Des Moines on Thursday and Friday. He left the city last night. ostensibly for Burlington, to which place he requested that his mail be forwarded. No further trace of him has been found. He registered as A. K. Edgar, Chicago, and rep resented himself as the traveling a gent of a gas supply house. The eight clerk at the hotel asserts pos itively that he fits exactly the de scription of Bartholin. Henry L. Shattuck, of Shellsburg, Iowa, was cured of a stomach troub le with which he had been afflicted for years, by four boxes of Cham berlain's Stomach and Liver Tab lets. He had previously tried many other remedies and a number of physicians without relief. For Bale by Graham & Wells. Just Look At Her.
