Great Northern, who so mysteriously
disappeared and was loft in the
mountains at Balton, Mont., last
November while on a hunting ex
peditioa, met his death after horrible
suffering: within ten minutes wait
of safetv and almost within call of
the friends who were sear hing for

Mr. Egan froze to death after

But before death overtook him .he
spent hoars ' of terrible suffering,
suffering from the cold, terror-strick

not a mile and a half wide, on one
side of which were his friends and
on the other side the ( railway and

turned toward safety and traveled
in a direct line toward the railway,

Redding, C il., Jane 9. A stage
traveling between Weaverville a i
this, place was held up and robbed
late this afternoon by two mask-d
and heavily armed highwaymen
who secured about $4UU and some
vulaable watches from the eight pas
sengers, lncluam?; a laay. James
Wilsu the stage-driver, did not
hear the first command ot the high
waymen to halt and continued to
drive along the road, but a dozen
shots and tbe killingof his two lead
ers brought bim tb bis senses and
to a r a! zauoo of the fact that he
and his ps engers weie to be tbe
victims pf a hold-up.
After halting the stage the rob-
hers llined up the passengers and
driver and searched them carefully.
Valises were slashed open and two
express boxes smashed to bit. The
robbers were vtry abusive during
the entire proceedings, roundly
scoring the driver for not stopping,
and cautioning him not to .repeat
the offense when he was next com
manded to halt. Mi.sc of the men
robbed were either commercial trav
elers from San Francisco or miner0.
Tbe ladv was not molested, but
on leaving the stage at the com
mand of the bandits left $45 under

PoriUntf, June 9. Here is a
cl urn that civil service under the
in w charter is in ' fact a political
machine. The Journal today says:
' "Tbe people of Portland have al
leady had opportunity to see the
conf qnences of entrusting the civil
service to a board of practical poli
ticians. The result has been the
demoralization of the police and
fire departments. r ; That provision
of tbe new city chaiter which iwas
designed to protect the municipal
service from the blight of machiue
politics has been made a dead let
ter. The very weapon which the
people formed to use against the
bosses has been wrested by the lat
ter to their own uses.
It bas been patent to the most
casual observer that the civil serv
ice commission had but one object,
and that was to make the fire and
police departments mere adjuncts
of the Matthews - machine. The
commissioners have lent themselves
openly and shamelessly to this
fcheme. ' V
Chief Hunt announced sime time
ago that no one would be permitted
to remain on the police force "un
less he had yoted right." '
To vote right means, under' tbe
present regime, to vote for the can
didates of the jack Matthews ma
chine. Chief Hunt's utterance has
borne fruit in the dismissal of a po
ticeman who had the temerity to
predict that within two years the
Mathews ring would be ousted irom
power and that the . Simon faction
would again come into control, it
was an unpardonable Bin. From
the Mathews machine came an im
nerious demand that the officer
should be dismissed from, the force,
and the demand met with prompt
compliance. The executive board
proved as eager to carry out ine win
of tbe machine as the civil service
commission had been. ;
Nothing could be more farcical
than the charge of "offensive parti
sanship'! which is the osteBsible
ground for this policeman's remov
al. ? if there was ever an-insiance
of offensive partisanship; : flagrant,
unscrupulous partisansnipi u is 10
be found in the . boards ana , com
missions whose only object appears
to be to do the bidding of a disre
putable and discredited boss.
