On last Mondav afternoon, Feb

enea her door in answer to the door
bell, the members of her Sunday
scnooi class to the number of twenty-six,
entered her parlor. : it was
her fifty-sayenth birthday, and it
was a very; pleasant, surprise. - The
afternoon was .spent in pleasant
conversation and reminiscences.
DnriDg the . afternoon an elegant
massive oak rocker and a hand
some pieced quilt was brought in
and presented to Mrs. Bradford as
a testimony of the good wishes of
her class, after which they all as
sembled on the front porch and
Mus Flossell Overman took a pho
tograph of the group. Altogether
jt was an occasion which will al
ways be a bright spot on memory's
payes of each - one present. The
f.Hii.ts of those present were, Mrs.
Mulkey, Oliver, Loggan, Rayburn,

Pittsburg, Feb. - 2. Mrs. W. S.
Flower, the offending daughter ; of
the late Charles Lockhart, who by
his will was left only the income of
$300,000 for life, will be taken care
of liberally by her two brothers and
two sisters, each of whom is left al
most $37,500,000 - ' ' ;
-, It was announced late today that
the four more fortunate brothers
and sisters had held - several meet
ings and had decided to each hand
over to Sarah "Eleanor - Lockhart
Flower about $7,500,000," which
would make up a purse of $3o,ooo,
ooo, equal to the share remaining
of each cf the other children.
It came out today that Lockhart
did not disinherit his daughte ber
cause of her elopement. " While he
was very angry at . the time she ran
away "and married the poor dentist,
Dr. mower, of Pittsburg, Bnd later
she was taken back into the family
circle.- When, however, there came
a little one to the home of Dr.
Flower, in casting aboutfor a name
the mother did not include the
name of Lockhart, and this ' is eaid
by close friends of "the family to
have offended her father greatly.
The story of the first meeting be
tween the bid millionaire and his
daughter after she had married was
made public today. She had been
forbidden to set foot in the Leek
hart mansion, but she came quietly
and often to see her sisters and oth
er members of thehousehold,' always
choosing a time when . her father
was mo9t likely to be at home.
She had not broken bread in the
house since her. marriage, and one
day, when luncheon time arrived,
she arose to go, as she felt she would
not be welcome at her father's ta
ble." When she-was about to leave
the housej he said: "Sarah, since
you are here you. might :as well Etay
for luncheon." 'And. she did.' -
After that Mrs.' Flower was a fre
quent caller, and she and her fath
er seemed to havff forgotten their
differences. In the last months of
his life Mrs. Flower was often at
the home of her father and during
his last illness she assisted the fam
ily in administering to hia wants.
There was then the belief that he
would provide for his daughter
equally with his other children, and
the fact that be did not do so caus
ed great surprise:
Of his boundless wealth Mr. Lock
hart gave only $365,000 to charita
ble institutions about one week's
income. -" .
That the wealth of Charles Lock
hai't will reach $15o,ooo,ooo is as
serted by men with whom he was
intimately associated. He received
quarterly from the Standard Oil
TJcrrrpany $2p25o,cooY oi$ 17,ooo,ooo
a year. This has been going on for
years. ' He was also the owner of a
large amount of real estate in New
York City. .
Washington, Feb. 7. After a
continuous session of nine hours the
senate at 8:45 passed, .the Joint
Statehood bill. As passed the bill
provided for the admission of the
states of Oklahoma, to be compris
ed of Indian territory and Oklaho
ma, and New Mexico according to
the present boundaries, with Ari
zona eliminated, and in this .form
the bill passed. . - . -';'&;
Portland, Feb. 9. Judge Albert
H. Tanner, law partner of John H.
Mitchell, and one of the most promi
nent attorneys and citizens of Port
land, was indicted yesterday after
noon by the Federal grand jury for
the crime of perjury alleged to have
been committed on January 3I
while before the grand jury as a
witness in relation to the dealings
of Senator Mitchell with Frederick
AKribs, the land speculator.
At the sam time this indictment
was returned three others were also
reported to the court, one against
Hamilton II, Hendricks for suborn
ation of perjury; one against Geo.
C. Brownell in amendment of the
indictment for subornation of per
jury returned a week ago, and the
last against Henry Meldrum, Geo.
Waggoner, .David W. Kinnairsd,
Rufus S. Moore, a brother of State
Treasurer Charles S. Moote; John
W. Hamaker and Frank J. Van
Winkle, for conspiracy to defraud
the government.
The indictment of Judge Tanner
is the most sensational returned fof
some time, for it brings before the
public with unexpected suddenness
the name of a man heretofore en
tirely unconnected by rumor or fact
with the far-reaching frauds now
being unearthed. The indictment
further charges that it was loyalty
to his partner, Senator Mitchell,
and a wish to spare him from the
shame of the second indictment re
turned a week ago which caused
him to attempt to hide, according
to th6 allegations of the indictment,
the true state of affairs as : exlstant
in the business of their law office.
Washington, Feb. 8. By a vote
of 326 ayes to 17 noes the house at

tute, was defeated, 151 ayes to 186

Lebanon, Or. Feb., 8. Robbers.V
who left no clew whatever after a
neat job, cracked the safe of Leba
non Bank some time last night and
got away with over $8,000, all the
money there was in the bank. Lo
cal parties are suspected. The
cracksmen seemed to have had no
horses in the vicinity, and escaped
on a railroad velocipede. When
the bank waB opened this morning
the vault and the safe were found
badly wrecked. Many $2o 1 gold
pieces were scattered about the
vault. The robbers carried sacks
of chittim bark from a warehouse
near the bank, piling them around
the vault and the safe when the
charges were fired. These deaden
ed the sound so that although it
was beard by persons in the hotel
near by, they thought nothing of
the explosion. ' ,
A stolen railroad tricycle at Tall
man station leads to the belief that
the robbers escaped on that to Al
bany, took an early train there for
The bank carried burglar insur
ance for $lo,ooo. Scroggins Bros.
Bank at Sheridan, belonging to the
same firm, was burglarized a year
ago. One member of - the firm
slept in the bank all winter until a
week ago, when he gave up the
practice, thinking it unnecessary.
Posses of deputy sheriffs and chi
tons - were,..; organized : early . . this
morning as soon as the crime was
discovered. They immediately took
up the chase at the point where the
bandite left the railroad trackB and
made for the timber. The posses
are mounted and are heavily armed,
Police officers in every city and
town in the state have been notified
and ase keeping a lookout for the
men in case they show up in aDy
towns. Excellent descriptions of
the men were obtained.
It is believed by local detectives
that the crime was committed by
the same gang who has operated
successfully in Portland and in tbe
suburbs of the city during the pact
three weeks. - For four nights they
have committed no crimes in this
city and detectives have been wait
ing th hear of a "trick" in some of
the smaller towns of the state.
Entrance was gained to the bank
building through the door of ti e
office of Dr. Booth in the rear of the
bank. The robbers bored through
the-main eafe and then cracked tne
inner safe with some explosive.
Indications are that three or four
men were engaged in the work, au(
some Lebanon people believe tha.
the robbery was committed by
"home talent," because of the e
curing of the chittim bark a block
away. The bank' is situated on
Lebanon's leadiag business corner,
and it waB necessary for the robber
to carry the bark the entire lengtb
of an alley in the rear of a etring of
business houses, including the St.
Charles Hotel, and then cross the
street to the bank.'
. Berlin, Feb. 7. The Tageblalt
reports that a plot against the czar's
life was discovered by. Emperor
Nicholas himself. His majesty was
walking through the corridors of
Tsarskoe Selo Yesterday, when he
noticed a letter addressed to him
self lying upon the floor. He pick
ed it up and found that it contain
ed the announcement that 12 men
had sworn to kill him in revenge
for the St. Petersburg massacre of
January 22.
The letter caused . much excite
ment throughout the palace. Elab .
orate precautions were immediately
taken to protect the czar, who ha3
not left the palace since.
The same paper also announces
that more fighting has occurred at'
