COLIiAPSE, AY- BETTORS
bryan's campaign gone to smash
and nothing doing.
Six to One Offered on tlie General Be-
ult-Nobody'H Tale the Bryaa
Men Tritb money to bet on the election
of President McKlnley had to hunt with a
dark lantern and a search -warrant yes
terday to find anybody who wanted to bet
on Bryan, says the New York Sun of
October 2L In Wall street Bryan money
had disappeared almost as completely as
If It had never been there. All kinds of
inducements were offered by McKlnley
supporters to draw Bryan money Into the
hands of the stakeholders, but there was
nothing doing. In fact, In the last hope
of grettlns a bet down, the men with Mc
Klnley money offered luxurious bets. One
of these was an offer to bet any part of
$1000. at odds of S to 1. that McKlnley
would set 150,000 plurality In this statcC
!Eiis offer was made by a prominent
Wall street broker shortly after the mar
ket opened yesterday mornlngr. and It
was hungr out as long" as there was a
possibility of setting It covered. To be
absolutely accurate, the offer stood rood
as long as the broker remained In his
office, and be remained there three hours
after the market closed. No Bryan money
liad appeared, however, at a few minutes
after S o'clock, and so the broker went
home concluding that the result of three
days registration had convinced those In
clined to take the short end of McKlnley
bets that It was practically Impossible to
Teln, no matter how the let was framed.
About the first offer made public in
Wall street yesterday was that of a
broker who announced that he had 5500
to bet against $250 that McKlnley would
carry Illinois. The broker and his agents
carried the terms of this offer wherever
it was supposed there was any Bryaa
money, but never a taker was found.
Shortly after the market opened, Cooper,
Cramp & Beadleston announced that they
had $4000 to bet against $1000 that McKln
ley would be elected. The news of this
offer was .sung through the street, but)
nobody appeared to have $1000 which he
cared to risk on such a proposition. As
I a. last resort the firm telephoned to Bell
& Co., where, it was understood, there
was plenty of Bryan money, that Cooper.
Cramp & Beadleston had $4000 to bet on
McKlnley at Odds of 4 to 1. The answer
-was sent back that Bell & Co. hadn't any
Bryan money. When this answer was
reported in Cooper, Cramp & Beadleton's
office, one of the customers remarked;
"Looks like it was all over but the
J. J. Judge, an outside broker, who has
been making many large bets, let it be
known about 11 o'clock that he had K10.000
to bet in $500 lots at 4& to 1 that McKln
ley would be elected. Those who heard
Mr. Judge's offer simply smiled and sent
word to him that he would have to offer
better odds if he expected to place his
money. Half an hour later, In the hope
of drawing out some Bryan money. Judge
offered to bet $20,000 even that McKlnley
would carry Indiana. Not a nibble did
"Well." Mr. Judge is reported to have
said, "we'll see if a bet can be framed
which will be considered attractive
enough for the -men with Bryan cash. It,
indeed, any such men are to be found."
Mr. Judge thought for a little and then
caused the announcement to be made that
ho would bet $20,000 eVen that McKlnley
Tvould carry Bryan's own State of Ne
braska. Nobody was any more eager to
accept that offer than any other that
had been made, and Judge concluded that
there was no chance of getting any
money on, on McKlnley.
George S. Lancon & Co. offered to bet
$20,000 to $5000 that McKlnley would be
elected, and they could not place iny
part of it. .After these offers had been
made, without drawing out any Bryan
money, the quotations shifted and 5 to 1
on McKlnley was oilerea, with no takers.
"Then, just before the market closed, 6
to 1 in small sums was offered, the most
liberal odds yet hung up. but nobody
wanted to bet. "
"Great heavens!" exclaimed an old Wall
street operator, when he heard of the
odds on McKlnley, "this fellow Bryan has
dropped from a possibility to a despised
selling plater. If it keeps on at this rate,
somebody will be offering 100 to 1 on Mc
Krnlcy, before election, in the hope of
getting a bet down, just for the record."
The real reason for the offering of these
extraordinary odds on President McKln
ley in Wall street Is probably to be found
In tile general condition of the market
and of business generally. The trade re
views, the bank "statements and the crop
bulletins, to say nothing of railroad earn
ings, show that the financial world has
already discounted the election and has
acquired a confidence in the result sel
dom, if ever before, known in a Presi
dential year. It is true, of course, that
many investments and industrial enter
prises are tring held up until the result
has leen announced, but the feel'ng seems
to be so widespread that McKlnley will
be elected that, according to some of the
best-Informed financiers In Wall street,
the business of the country Is in better
shape, and plans for more enterprises
have been formed than have been known
of before in the October of a Presidential
year in a -quarter of a century.
The professional bettors uptown were
not at all surprised to hear of the scarcity
of Bryan money in Wall street. These
men haven't been able to get a bet of any
kind down In nearly two weeks. Said one
"There's no use talking about election
betting, for there Isn't any. You can't
Und any Bryan money, no matter what
kind of a. reasonable bet you offer to
mako. 'Odds of 5 to 1 on McKlnley were
marked up by some of us today, but I
don't believe that 10 to 1 would draw
out any democratic money. The fact
is, the bottom fell clean out of the Bryan
campaign a little over a week ago and
nobody with any sene is going to take
the Democratic end of any betting propo
sition this Fall."
-f Gottfried Walbaum, who. with the pos
sible exception of George Weelock. is the
heaviest bettor on elections in town, told
jl Sun man last night that he has been
able to bet only about $3000 thus tar. He
would like to bet $100,000 more.
"Election betting,"" said Mr. Walbaum,
-is my strong suit. I have been wrong
on only two elections in 23 years, and
it's no wonder that I regret not being
able to get down a bet of any conse
quence this year. I was ready to lay 2 to
1 early in the pampaign. but some of my
iJemoeratlc friends urged me so strongly
td "hold off until October, assuring me
that I 'Wouia be certain to get better
odd's., that I held off. "Now I am kicking
Myself. George Wheelock Is the luckiest
o"f the big -professional bettors I know.
He did what I wanted to do in August
and early in September, and placed about
$10,000 at 2 to 1 and 2& to L I am now
offering 5 to 1 and can't get a bet."
"Mr. Croker seems to have money to
bet." suggested tlie reporter.
"Yes." said Mr. Walbaum. "Mr. Croker
b&Usoroe rapney some of his .own money,
perhaps some time "ago, but he -wouldn't
bet any of his own money now. He's too
shrewd a man. But most of the money
which Mr. Croker was said to have put up
was, as I happen to know, part of the
Tammany campaign fund. It was thought
wise to spend some of it that way. It
may be that the Democratic organization
has more money to spend In the same
;K&S, but 3 hear not. I only hope It has,
ior 'then' I may be able to get some of
Mr. Walbaum does his own political fig
uring. This year he has put In the doubt
ful column Delaware, Maryland. Ken
tucky, West "Virginia, Indiana, Oregon,
Kansas, Wyoming, Washington, Idaho
tind Nebraska. With G2 .votes. McKlnley.
according to Walbaum's -figures Is sure
of" 22$ votes. This leaves to Bryan 157
votes sure, or, with all the doubtful
states. 219. Having thus calculated the
result, Mr. Walbaum Is prepared to make
the following bets:
One hundred thousand dollars, or any
part of It, at odds of, 5 to 1, that Mc
Klnley will be elected; $10,000 even that he
will have 100,000 plurality In New York
State; $10,000 even that Bryan will not
have more than 60,000 plurality In the
City of New York; $10,000 even that Mc
Klnley will carry Kings County; $30,000
to $10,000 that McKlnley will carry Illi
nois. As to his doubtful states, Walbaum
will bet 6 to 5 that McKlnley carries Dela
ware; even money he will carry Mary
land; 4 to 5, Kentucky; even money, West
Virginia; 6 to 5, Indiana; even money,
FOR SAFETY OF RESERVOIRS
City Sues to Condemn a Small Par

The City of Portland has begun suit
against Leander Lewis in the State Cir
cuit Court, to condemn a piece of land
near the reservoirs at the City Park. The

already purchased by the city, and to
complete the sliding lands purchase tho
city desires the Lewis parcel, which Is
small, In order to have no obstacle In. the
wa5r properly to drain the lands and get

As:s tor nn Injunction.
William Klckhaefer, of Milwaukee,
Wis., yesterday began suit In the United
States Circuit court against L. G. Wheel
er, Madge Wheeler and the St. Anthony
Gold Milling & Mining Company, of
Grant County, Oregon, to enjoin them
from Interfering with the employes of
the company. The complainant, who Is a
large stockholder in tho company, alleges
that defendants L. G. Wheeler and Madge
Wheeler on October 8, unlawfully and
with force and violence went upon the
claims and property of the company and
into the mouth of a main tunnel thereon
and about and Into the buildings, and as
saulted and drove away the agents, min
ers, etc, of the company sent there to
work and develop the property, and
threatened to shoot and kill said agents
and employes, and these defendants con
tinue to remain about and near said
property and continue to threaten to
beat, shoot, and kill any employes of tho
company who may be sent there to open,
work or develop the property.
The object of the suit Is to have a stop
put to such proceedings and the rights of
complainant Klckhoefer protected. L. G.
Wheeler Is the son of A. E. Wheeler, of
Milwaukee, Wis., who Is president of the
company, and Madge Wheeler Is the wife
of L. G. Wheeler. From this It would
appear as If there was some trouble
among the stockholders of the company.

PORTLAND, Or.. Oct. 26. Since Mr.
Edwin Mays has chosen to make his dif
farences with the Gold Coast Company a
matter of newspaper notoriety, it is only
fair that the company should be heard

the Gold Coast Company and Its co-partners

were bought and paid for In Portland;
and, comes back with nothing to show
for them and no report or accounting
for what he did with the trust placed in
his hands, or of the money or other
things received for it, and, sues for his
alleged services for the care of these
very things, and makes an ostentatious
display of his suit, before rendering any
report or accounting for what he did
with the trust or any money that may
have come into his hands by reason of it.
The public, to which he plays, may
well wait and see how he accounts for
the trust placed In him, in the court of
his own choosing. In his own suit, before
being influenced by his statements.

ENDED THEIR TROUBLES
DISGRACED CHINESE OFFICIALS
Governor Yn Hslen Swallowed Gold
Leaf and "Died" Occurrences
Reported by Minister Wu.
WASHINGTON, Oct 25. The Chinese
Minister has received a dispatch stating
that Kang Yi, a member of the Cabinet
with Hung Li, and one of the intense
antl-forolgn leaders whose punishment,
was demanded by the powers, died of ill
ness the ISth Inst.; also that Yu Hslen,
the late Governor of Shan SI, who Is said
to have been responsible for the death
of many missionaries, has committed sui
cide by swallowing gold leaf. Minister
Wu regards this act as a sign of the
disfavor they have received from the
Kang Yi was one of the ringleaders
whose punishment was demanded by the
powers. He held the position of assistant
Grand Secretary and President of the
Civil Board, and 'also was one of the
statesmen making up the Privy Council,
or Cabinet, which Is the body nearest the
throne. Following the demands of the
powers for his punishment, an edict was
Issued handing him over to the Board of
Censors to consult and decide upon a
penalty for his misdoing. The same edict
ordered the punishment of Prince Tuan,
but it was thought that the Tuan influ
ence would secure leniency for Kang YI
and for others. Today's dispatch shows,
however, that Kang YI himself recognized
that there was no hope of Imperial fa
vor. Although the dispatch to Minister
Wu says only that Kang Yl "died" on
the 18th Inst., It Is thought that this
"death" was the natural result of the
disgrace which has overtaken the antl
forelgn and Boxer element. Governor
Yu's method of sulcldt Is peculiar to
China. It Is a means by which high per
sonages take their lives, the gold leaf
being representative of their high sta
tion. The leaf forms a ball In the canals
of the body and brings aeath from suffo
Minister Wu's advices today also show
that Prince Tuan had been visited with
severe censure from, the throne and to
such an extent that It would be no sur
prise if he followed the course of Kang
YI and Yu. He has been prevented from
accompanying the Imperial court to Sinan
Fu, and remains In Shan Si, cut off from
further influence on the throne. It Is
expected that he will be banished, wh'oh
to a Prince of the blood Is worse than
decapitation, and under the Idea of pro
priety suicide Is likely to be his end. Mr.
Wu laid his dfcspatch before Secretary
Hay. The text of the communication Is
"A cablegram from Viceroy Chang Chi
Tung, dated October 25, states that the
Governor of Shan SI has reported that
Kang Yl died October 18; that Yu Hslen
(late Governor of Shan SI) has committed
suicide by swallowing gold leaf, and that
Prince Tuan has not been permitted to
accompany the court. A cablegram dated
October 24, from Director-General Sheng,
states that an Imperial decree has been
Issued directing Prince Chlng and Earl
LI to fix and submit for approval the sev
eral penalties to be Inflicted on those
Princes and -Ministers that ought to be
punished. He adds that Kang Yl has
died of sickness, and that Prince Tuan
and Prince Chwang have not beon al
lowed to accompany the 'court to Shen SI.
HITCH IN THE PROCEEDINGS.
Four Powers Have Not Accepted the
WASHINGTON, Oct 26.-Jn diplomatic
quarters there is felt to be some signifi
cance In the fact that France, Russia and
Japan, as well as the United States, have
not yet accepted the Invitation to accept
the principles of the Anglo-German alli
ance. It Is understood that this non-action
of the powers is not due to any con
certed movement among them, although
each appears to be halting on the third
A diplomatic official said today that on
mature consideration of this third clause
it was seen to involve two constructions:
First, that if any power took territory
In China as a result of the present
trouble, then Germany and Great Britain
also would take territory; or, second, if
any country took territory in China, Ger
many and Great Britain would seek to
prevent this action, or otherwise jointly
act against the country seeking to extend
Its domains. Either construction, it was
painted out, was such that the powers
not a. party to the agreement could not
be expected to bind themselves to Its ac
ceptance. Under these circumstances It was said
that the powers probably would seek to
learn Russia's views en the third clause,
as Russia's approval undoubtedly would
remove the Idea that there Is any pos
sible menace intended. But it is recog
nized among diplomatic officials that It
would be extremely difficult to secure an
expression from Russia en this point, as
an unfavorable rejoinder, which she
might be expected to give, would amount
to a declaration that she had some terri
torial designs on Manchuria, and a re
fusal to answer would be similarly open
to such construction. The impression is
growing among the representatives cf
these powers that' the present non-actl-n
will continue for some time, and that the
agreement will be confined to Great Brit
ain and Germany, at least until there Is
a fuller understanding of the third clause
than either of these governments have
given thu3 far.
Punishment of Guilty Chinese.
PARIS, Oct. 2G. According to a dis
patch from Pekin. dated October 24, to
the Havas Agency, Prince Chlng and L'
Hung Chang have communicated to lh,e
legations the imperial decree, in accord
ance with which the Princes and Minis
ters responsible for the recent trouble In
China are to be punished according to
their respective degrees of culpability.
The Emperor recognizes the fact that
General Tung Fah Slang has comm'ted
serious offenses, and he charges Prlnqe
Chlng and Li Hung Chang to fix the ren
altlc to be imposed on thoe for whom
the Europeans demand punishment The
communication states that the Chinese
plenipotentiaries have already inflicted
punishment upon some Princes. These
plenipotentiaries assure the Emperor of
the death of Kang Yi. Prince Tuan and
Prince Schouang are not with the court.
These communications are not satisfac
tory to the legations.

Religions Colony In Clackamas
County Something of People.
OREGON CITY, Or., Oct. 26. In the
Southern portion ,of Clackamas County,
near Needy, reside about 30 families of
a religious sect known as the Amlsh
Memmonltes, who have done so much
'to further the Interests of diversified
farming In that section of the county.
These people are of .German descent, and
came to Oregon from Pennsylvania. Dan
Kauffman Is virtually the leader of the
old school of Memmonltes. He arrived
here, with a few of his followers, 21
years ago. The Memmonltes have dug
farms out of the heavy timber and pros
pered by closely following the details of
farming In Its several branches.
Dan Kauffman and several Immediate
relatives conduct a creamery on the most
approved plan. The creamery uses the
milk from 50 cows, many of them being
mixed Jerseys and producing on the av
erage butter to the value of ?5 per cow
monthly. The butter is sold to dealers
In Portland and Oregon City, where It
ranks as a staple production, always
bringing the highest market price. This
creamery, however, differs from other
creameries In the county from the fact
that tho principal feed is corn-fodder en
silage, the management making a great
success of silos. The ground on which
the corn Is grown is highly cultivated
and fertilized sufficiently to keep up its
producing qualities. Stalks grow to the
height of 12 or 15 feet
This is the only colony of Amlsh Mem
monltes in Oregon, except a small settle- J
ment near Newberg, In Yamhill County.
While these people are clannish, and con
fine their business and social relations
to their own kind, they are strictly hon
orable In, their obligations, and have
given their -neighbors some valuable les
sons in Industry and thorough farming.
The Memmonltes are facetiously called
by many people of their neighborhood the
"hook-and-eye , Dutch," the men using
only hooks anc1. eyes to 'fasten their
clothes, while , the women . use pins In
stead of buttons on their gowns. The
women wear a, white covering on their
heads, never appealing with their hair
uncovered. Of late years, however, a
new church has sprung up, that now
holds the larger proportion of the Amlsh
population. It Is more liberal In Its views
than the old-school 'organization, and
permits Its members to wear store clothes
with regulation buttons to a certain ex
tent. Many of the young people are be
coming members of the new church, prin
cipally on account of Its more liberal
Ideas In the matter of dress, and the fact
that some of the orthodox regulations are
not of such a oast-iron nature as the
old organization. The women all wear
plain colors, and many a Memmonlte
girl looks with longing eyes at the bright
colors worn by her companions at school.
