'WlllIlc EKtnWIhed on Upper Snalcc
River. ' , " '
LEWISTON. Idaho. MarchCT. An effort
'3s .now in progress to establish a, steam
boat line on the Upper Snake Klver. be
tween this jlty and Pittsburgh" Landing.

Tegular trips to Wild Goose Rapids, a
distance of 35 miles Ubdve Lewlston. The
mineral belt extends from that point to
the Seven Devils district, almost without
a break It will require special boats of
'smaller size and greater proportionate
, power to navigate the section of the
,, river between Wild Goose and Pittsburgh.
The best navigators in the Northwest
a-liave reconnoltered the route, and they
iiave said, unanimously that good mod-
i ern boats, will make this run with safety
and carry cargoes of 100 tons down
stream and 25 tons with an adequate fuel
" supply up stream.
. There seems to be no further doubt
about the future of this new mining dis
trict. Almost $100,000 worth of ore awaits
r the advent of this new boat. Large quan
tities of this have been sacked for ship
ment so long that the bags have rotted.
The statement that 1100,000 worth of ore
lies on the Snake River beach and that
It has waited for a considerable time for
transportation, which could be afforded
for less than flO.000. will appear to the
average business man to be unreasonable.
It Is a fact determined by actual tests
and measurements that the Great East
ern mine at Pittsburgh, the Blue Jacket
s.f Crook's Corral and the Imnaha at the
mouth of the Imnaha River have fully
$100,000 in values on their dumps. And
there are otner properties of equal im
portance along the route.
Those who know about the Snake River
mines give evidence" that justifies the
belief that the mines Of the district alone
will afford ample traffic for a steamboat.
Effort "Will Be Mndc to Find Ont
Cnlprlts One Machine Recovered.
OLYMPIA, March 26. A few days be
fore the recent legislature adjourned a
aiew typewriter, valued at $100, "was stolen
from the Capitol building. From the
fact that "prior thieving at the Capitol
had. been confined to. articles of small
value, the typewriter theft caused con
siderable excitement - and Indignation.
Police and detectives made a search tor
the missing machine, but al to no pur
pose. Yesterday afternoon two boys found
the typewriter on the Capitol grounds,
covered with an old sack, and It had
recently been placed there, as was evi
denced by the appearance of the grass
under the machine. The finding of this
machiiie has now led to the further
discovery that another typewriter, also
new, was stolen from the Capitol the.
day after adjournment but not a trace
of the second machine" has been found.
This Is the first session in the state's
history when, really.,- valuable articles
have been stolen, and -the state officials
are indignant that such things should
Everyone expects fhat members of
both houses will carry off stationery,
waste baskets and even sets of the Code
costing $10 each, but no one thought
that typewriters would be among the
articles missing. A thorough investiga

Identity of the thieves. There seems to
be no way to guard against such thiev

ARE PLANTING GRASSES.
Earners Near Moscow Are Diver
3IOSCOW, Idaho, March 27 Mayor 33. T.
TByrns, who has a model stock and fruit
farm two miles south of the city, reports
that he has seeded 100 acres of bottom
land In clover, alfalfa and other meadow
grasses, and expects to seed 50 acres
more as soon as the land can be prepared.
'JThQ lands about Moscow," said Mr.
Byrns, "are peculiarly well adapted to
the growth of meadow grasses. Timothy
and all the clovers will grow luxuriantly
on any of these lands, with the exception
of the hill tops, where the ground dries
out too rapidly.
"The farmers have only recently discov
ered this, and a great deal of timothy
and other grass seed is being planted.
Dealers in seed Inform me that more
grass seed has been sold here this year
than ever before In all the history of the
Moscow country- It is the first step
In the change to a system of diversified
farming, and I think will result within a
few years in the farmers paying much
more attention to the1- raising of fat cat
tle and hogs than has been their prac
tice." The proprietor of the Moscow nursery
says that he has many orders for Winter
apple trees. The favorite tree In this
region seems to be the Gano, with the

County Treasurers May Deposit

OLYMPIA, Wash., March 26. An opin
ion of considerable interest to the small
er counties of the state was given today
by Attorney-General Stratton, In answer
to a county treasurer from Eastern
In the smaller counties it often hap
pens that there are but one xr two banks
and that they are of but limited cap
italization. For this and probably other
reasons the treasurers of the counties
In question do not feel entirely safe in
trusting the county funds to such In
stitutions. Such appears to be the case
in Okanogan County, the treasurer of
which has kept the county funds In a
Spokane County bank. To this official
the Attorney-General has replied that
he is clearly within his rights in placing
the county money In any bank and in
any county whero he thinks he is most

Feet on Little Bear Ridge.
TROY, Idaho, March 27 Frank Camp
bell, F. .N. Gilbert and Warren Trultt, of
Moscow, have closed a contract with a
number of 'settlers on Little Bear PJdge
by which they have purchased saw tim
ber to the amount of 15,000.000 feet. The
timber Is fir, tamarack and yellow pine,
three-fourths of it being pine. They
hive also closed a contract with thq Mos
cow Milling Company to take the logs
on the cars at ?4 a thousand.
It is expected that it win take the Mos
cow mill over five years to work up these
logs. Mr. Campbell In speaking of the
matter said: "We expect to start the

two weeks, as soon as a spur can be
built" from the main line of the-railroad
at a point four miles below here, where
there Is room in the canyon for us to
bank'the logs and load them on the cars.
I think the body of timber we have Just
Secured, and upon which "we have made a
first payment. Is the best saw Umber

Machinery nnd Supplies flor Removal
of Syliln dc Grnsse Reef.
ASTORIA, Or., March 27. All the ma
chinery, material and supplies which
Contractor E. T. Johnson was using for
thejremoval of the Sylvia de Grasse reef
were sold by Sheriff Linville and Con
stable Kelly today under executions Is
sued, from the Circuit and Justice Courts.
The suits In the Circuit Court were
brought by Ross, Hugglns'& Co., for sup
plies; W. H. Whltcomb. for a quantity
of rope, and' S. Johnson, for several as
signed labor claims, amounting In all to
$393. To cover these claims Sheriff Lin
ville sold all the machinery and tools to
George Leland, supposed to represent
Hale Sc Kern, for $263; ten tons of coal and
40 cords of wood to L. Lebeck, for $S0. and
a quantity of powder to Roes. HIgglns &
Co., for M. All the remaining property,
consisting of 2C00 pounds of powder, was
sold by Constable Kelly to Daniel Kern,
for $165, to cover a claim of L. Lebeck,
amounting to $150 20.
This settles all the claims filed against
Contractor John&on, excepting those of
"H. Whltcomb, amounting to $103 70, and
A. Campbell, amounting to $36 05. Both
these are for labor, but as there will be
but a small amount left of the sum real
ized from the sale, after the prior judg
ments are paid, these claimants will prob
ably lost the greater portion of their
claims. It is understood here that Daniel
Kern will complete Mr. Johnson's con
tract with the Government.

On Electric Property of F. R. Anson,
SALEM, March 27. C. F. Royal, a Sa
lem contractor, today began an action
against the Salem Light, Heat & Power
Company to recover $70 alleged to be due
for services rendered in setting electric
light poles for the defendant. A writ of
attachment was issued in the case, and
the Sheriff served the writ by attaching
all the right, title and Interest of the
company in the franchise granted by the
City of Salem to F. R, Anson, authoriz
ing him to establish and operate an elec
tric light plant in this city. The Sheriff
also attached about a dozen electric light
poles that have been erected on the streets
of this city by the new company.
The attachment Just at this time may
mean more than $70 to the parties Inter
ested, for by the terms of the ordinance
granting the franchise the rights granted
thereby become forfeit if the electric
light plant be not in operation on April
1, 1901. Mr. Anson, manager of the com
pany, has declared his Intention to have
his plant In operation by the date re
quired, but since the franchise Is tied up
by an attachment, it would seem now
that the right will be lost unless the at
taching creditor shall proceed to comply
with the terms of the ordinance. Anson
has given a $5000 bond conditioned upon
his having the plant in operation by
April 1, and the City Council has declared
Its Intention to enforce strict compliance
In every respect.
STRIKE AT VANCOUVER.
Brewer Are Still Out,-hut Have No
VANCOUVER, Wash., March 27. Van
couver is having practically Its first real
experience with a strike. Employes of
the Star brewery who are members of the
Brewers' Union quit work the first of
this week in compliance with the same
order which caused Portland brewers and
others to walk out.
The number of men on strike is 16, and
it Includes drivers, bottle boys, firemen
and brewers. So far as the operation of
the brewery is concerned, the strike cuts
but very little figure. Enough ran were
easily found to take the places of those
who went out, and the plant has been
operated without cessation. Nevertheless,
the strike Is working a hardship upon the
men affected and those depen-llrs upon
them, and with scarcely one exception
the men are all anxious to go to work
again. Manager Fr el wait, of the Star
brewery, sympathizes with his men, and
considers It an outrage that they were
forced out of work by an order which
falls to give anv reasonable grounds or
The men here, Mr. Frelwalt says, have
no grievance, arid simply stopped work
because they were ordered to do so by
the San Francisco union. Mr. Frelwalt
is of the belief that the strike is but a
scheme hatched by the San Francisco
brewers to cripple the breweries of the
Northwest in order to drive them from
the California territory. Mr. Frelwalt
says his company is willing and has of
fered to take back the greater number
of his men. provided they take advantage
of tho offer within a reasonable time at
the same wages paid before they went
MOUNT REUBEN MINES.
Development Is Going Forward
With. Successful Results.
LELAND, Or., March 27. There is much
activity in the gold quartz mining dis
tricts of Mount Reuben and Grave Creek.
In the Gold Bug, development work is
progressing, with exposure of some fine
ore. The mine Is being operated by means
of tunnel levels. The main tunnel is In
about 600 feet, the second level tunnel
about 160 feet, and the third over 60 feet.
The stoping is made from these tunnel
levels. The ledge has been tapped at a
depth of 524 feet from the surface. The
purpose is to sink deep in this mine.
The mine Is yielding some very fine ore,
much of which will yield $40 to $50 per
ton. The property is owned by the Gold
Bug Consolidated Mining Company. It
has a good road to the mine from Glen
dale. There is a finely equipped live
stamp mill on the property. It is run by
Several prospects of importance near
the Gold Bug are undergoing development.
The New Hope group, comprising seven
claims, is owned by Burnett, Hudson &
Gibson. This extensive property is being
worked now under a lease. A crosscut
tunnel is being run to tap the ledge at a
depth of 1200 feet. The ledge appears to
be well defined at the outcrop, and Is of
good width. The ore is a free-milling
quartz at the surface, showing free gold.
It Is of a character similar to that of
the Gold Bug, and Is thought to be a
continuation of the same vein. Assay
values from these veins have run as high
at $1924. The ore will average close to
$20 per ton.
The general mass of Mount Reuben Is
porphyeltic and schist rock. Nearly all
the ledges strike north and south. The
free gold ledges dip about 45 degrees to
the west. There Is another series of ledges
nearly vertical. These are found to carry
more sulphides and less free gold.
The Copper Stain is considered a valua
ble mine. It is at a lower elevation than
the Gold Bug. It is being operated by a
steam hoist. Specimen rock showing free
gold is common in this mine; In fact, there
is much high-grade ore.
Twenty-five miles west of West Fork Is
a quartz mine known as the Mule Creek
mine, which has been showing some line
ore- There is, three feet of ore at a depth
of 50 feet Assays from some of this ore
run very high as much as $300 but it is
all base, without any free gold. The ore
is mostly copper and iron pyrites. Brad
ley & Ladd. of Portland, have a bond on
the mine. The country is broken and very
rocky The nearest wagon road Is about
40 miles distant. The Mule Creek mine
is in Curry County, near the confluence
of that stream with Rogue River.

Grading: of Students.
ASTORIA. March 27. At a special
meeting of the Board of School Direc
tors today, the question of tuition for
non-resident pupils was discussed at
length, and it was decided that when
a non-resident, who is sending a child
to the local schools, is a taxpayer in
the "district and pays a vtax under the
special levy for District No. 1, he shall,
upon presenting the proper certificate,
be allowed credit for such amount upon
the regular tuition fee of the district
in either the primary or high school
grades. Provided, however, that in no
event shall the credit so allowed exceed
the difference between such tuition fee
and the amount received from the state
and county apportionments combined,
for one child.
On the recommendation of the board
of principals the Directors decided that
"honorable promotions" of pupils should
be made in the future on a general av
erage of 85 per cent for the term, pro
vided that the pupil did not fall below
70 per cent in any study. It was also
decided that when a pupil attains an
average of 90 per cent in any study, he
may be excused from taking any exam

If we live in deeds, not years, then Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral must be six thousand years old.
For sixty years it has been curing coughs and
colds, from a slight cold in the head to the most
desperate diseases of the lungs.
It is a hundred times as old in deeds as in
years, or a thousand times, for where can the
limit be placed when it has done such work as this :

Cherry Pectoral cured my sister after she was given up to die. So I purchased two bottles and it cured my
wife completely. It took only one bottle to cure my sister. So three bottles (i.co each) saved two lives

observing the law as far as the close sea
son is concerned, and no nets have been
seized for several days. Water Bailiffs
Moody and McCown state that the ma
jority of the fishermen have agreed to
assist them in ferreting out offenders,
nnd will aid in enforcing the law. There
was an understanding with the fishermen,

VANCOUVER, Wash.. March 27. James
Green, who is accused of the murder of
E. Benjamin, at Underwood's Landing,
in Skamania County, and who gave him
self up to the officers last night, was
brought to this city today by Sheriff Tot
ten, of Skamania County. The prisoner
appeared to be extremely nervous and de
spondent when ho reached here, and It was
thought best to allow no one to Inter
view him today. His condition was such
that Judge Miller considered it the bet
ter part of prudence not to allow him the
same liberty as other prisoners for fear
that he might attempt, suicide. He is
confined In a solitary cell. No date has
been fixed as yet for his trial.

Catarrh hss become such a common
disease that a person entirely free from j
tnia disgusting complaint is seldom met
with. It is customary to speak of Catarrh
aa nothing more serious than a bad cold,
a simple inflammation of the nose and
throat. It is, in fact, a complicated and
very dangerous disease ; If not at first, it
very soon becomes so.
The blood is quickly contaminated by
the foul secretions, and the poison
through the general circulation is carried
to all parts of the system.

Is in the nervous system, the most delicate and important
part of the whole body. When the nerves become weakened or
diseased, the head aches, the circulation is retarded and the
digestion is deranged. Little things irritate the temper and worry
th& mind, which only aggravates the disease until the whole sys
tem breaks down, and nervous prostration is followed by insanity
or death. Strengthen and build up the nerves and stop this
downward course before it is too late.
"My wife had a serious nervous affection "which
troubled her for a lonR time. Her arm3 and lees would
f;et numb and a peculiar stinging sensation would appear .
n her hands ana fingers. She worried a great deal, aa
nothing the doctors gave seemed to do her anv good. But
the first few doses of Dr. Miles' Kcrvine brought relief
and in a few weeks she was as well and strong as ever."
