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."

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 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
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,

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
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.
A Cure for Cholera Infantum.
"Last May," says Mrs. Curtis Ba
ker, of Bookwalter, Ohio, "an in
fant child of our neighbor's was suf
fering from cholera infantum. The
doctor had given up all hopes ofre
covery. I took a bottle of Cham
berlain's Colic, "Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy to the house, telling
them I felt sure it would do good if
used according to directions. In
two days time the child had fully
recovered, and is now (nearly a year
since) a vigorous, healthy girl. I
have recommended thia Remedy
frequently and have never known
it to fail in any single instance.''

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 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

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.
