SALEM, Or., Dec. 15. The numerous
liold-ups in this city and vicinity yester
day have caused do small excitement, and
evey man who -walks the streets in the
eubi:rbs after nlcht must count on the
poss.blllty of meeting the highwayman.
Aftir two hold-ups in the eastern part
of town early in the evening; Sheriff Dur
hlnsnd Chief of Police Gibson made a tour
of that part of the city in the hopes of
finding the robber. While they were
searching: some empty lumber sheds near
the passenger depot, two Mormon elders
were held up within 150 yards of the of
ficers. The two elders were relieved of $12.
From the descriptions given by those
who have been held up, It appears that
there are two robbers working independ
ently of each other. The robber who held
up thiee men near the Reform School is
supposed to have operated In Salem last
night. The officers are in hopes of being
made the subjects of a hold-up them
selves, so that they will have an oppor
tunity to catch the robbers.

GRANT'S PASS, Dec. 15. The Poke

lias begun the work of building a railroad
Irom Laird's station, a few miles south
of the state line, to Upper Klamath Lake,
a distance of 65 miles, has filed articles
of incorporation and begun business. Be

will build and operate steamers on the
Klamath Lakes and Klamath River and
tributaries in Southern Oregon, establish

"Work has already begun In surveying the
road, getting material on the ground
and in grading. Many carloads of rails
have been brought in and unloaded at
Laird's. It Is the desire of the company
to hurry along the first portion of the
road, or that leading Into the Klamath

The new Osgood hydraulic mines of the
"Waldo district, developed this past Sum
mer by F. H. Osgood, a Seattle railroad
and mining man, have opened operations
lor the "Winter. These new mines prom
ise to take leading rank among the big
hydraulic properties of Southern Oregon.
They will operate three giants both night
and day, and have many miles of ditches
and flumes, constructed at a great cost, as
it was found necessary, in getting the
water to the mining ground, to dig a tun
nel through Hogue Hill, a mountain of
solid rock, a distance of 350 feet. The
working grounds of this new mine, like
that of all the Waldo placers, Is very
rich, and the property begins Its career
with a bright outlook.
The Angel placer mines, situated In the
Upper Gallce Creek district, have beeD
sold by Jackson & Call to William Geb
hart, of Idaho, and J. H. Rogers, of Mich
igan. The consideration is not known.
The property is Jn course of development
only, and will be repaired, improved and
put In a business-like shape for work by
the new owners.
Theoldand noted Dry Diggings hydraulic
mines, situated three miles east of Grant's
Pass, and recefitly purchased by Ament
Bros., of Chicago, began their Winter's
work two days ago, under the new man
agement. Owing to the many Improve
ments, the extensive repairs and the
greatly Increased facilities of these mines
under the new management, their run will
be longer and their production of gold
greater than ever before in the history of
these old and noted placer diggings.
The Baby quartz mine, situated in the
Louse Creek district, a few miles north or
Grant's Pass a new property purchased
and equipped a short time ago by East
ern people, is making an excellent show

night and day, crushing rock that Is aver

other property recently equipped and
launched out for business. The success of
these mines has stimulated a number of
other undeveloped properties In the dis

to be erected during the coming year.

GREENLEAF. Dec. 9. The half dozen
crews who have been putting logs Into
Lake and Deadwood Creeks to be floated
to mills on Sluslaw Bay lost so many of
them by the failure of the boom company
to close Its gate when the first high water
came last month that their balances will
all be on the wrong side of the ledger. In
most cases about half the logs went out.
There Is no telegraph or telephone down

He advises the people of Eastern Oregon

In speaking of his brother, Henry
Ankeny. who is one of the candidates for
Governor, he said It was natural that he
should favor his brother, which he pro

dock In this city. Outside of the wheat
business there are a number of Portland
ers and ex-Portlanders taking a promi
nent part in the commercial life of the
city. Frank Woolsey la In charge of Dod
well's steamship interests here, and as
the Dodwell line is now the largest for
eign steamship enterprise on the Pacific
Coast, he Is kept very busy with a large
office staff working under him. He has
recently been joined at Tacoma by C. V.
La Farge, who was for a long time In
charge of Dodwell's Portland office. The
new docks at Tacoma are proving none
too large for the business for which they
were planned, for with the delayed ar
rival of a number of ships, wheat has
piled up on the exporters until there Is
more wheat on spot at this port than
has ever been held here before, the
amount running well up towards 100,000
tons. Quite a fleet "of ships has arrived
within the past few days, and the docks
will hardly be as full again this season.
Good Tagboat Service.
The tugboat service on Puget Sound
is excellent. This statement Is perhaps
superfluous when it Is known that Puget
Sound tugs not only cover their own
field, but find time to steam down near
the Columbia River, and make fast to
$100,000 salvage finds right under the nose
of Columbia River tugboatmen. The
picking up of the PInmore and bringing
her to Puget Sound is regarded as a
hilarious joke by the water front con
tingent In both Tacoma and Seattle.
While there Is some censure for Captain
Jamieson's apparently needless abandon
ment of his ship, at the same time the
Columbia River tugboats come In for a
share of the criticism, the burden of
the opinion here being to the effect that
the tugboatmen on the Columbia are
afraid of "mal de mer." Captain "Buck"
Bailey, of the Tatoosh, who has but re
cently left Puget Sound for the Colum
bia River, escapes some of this censure,
the impression here being that he tipped
the job off to the Puget Sound Tugboat
Company without making any effort to
capture the richest salvage prize in 10
years. Probably the next time a ves
sel Is reported In distress a few miles
north of the Columbia River, there will
be enough curiosity aroused In Astoria
to get a tug there before one can bo
sent from Seattle, 200 miles away.
Tncoma's Industrial Activity.
Tacoma has developed quite a "dlnner
pall brigade" since she emerged from
her comatose state a few years ago, and
the various factories, mills, foundries and
shops give employment to a large force
of skilled and unskilled laborers. One of
the latest additions to her industrial en
terprises Is a first-class shipyard. In
which Captain Al Stream, formerly u
Columbia River tugboatman, is Interest
ed. Stream hung around Astoria for a
long time, trying to awaken an interest
in his enterprise there, but falling, came
to Tacoma. Here he joined forces with
a recent arrival from Connecticut named
Hardy, who has one of the finest, best
equipped small machine shops and foun
dries In the Northwest. They have re
cently completed a largo steam schooner
and are Just finishing off a four-masted
barkentine for Charles Nelson, of San
Francisco. She Ms a magnificent looking
craft, 214 feet long, and cost to build
nearly $75,000, the greater portion of
which was paid for labor and material
In Tacoma. There were 160 men working
In the machine shops and shipyard yes
terday, although there has been a ma
chinists' strike on In this shop for nearly
six months. A temporary examination
of the PInmore has disclosed the fact
that she is comparatively uninjured, but
she will enter the dock for further ex
amination. The PInmore and Nelson.
The future ownership of the PInmore is
still In doubt. Captain Jamleson, ac
companied by J. C. Flanders, was In
Tacoma yesterday, looking over the sit
uation. Captain Jamleson Is still re
garded as master of the ship, but finds
himself in the peculiar position pf being
obliged to ask permission before he can
go aboard. Accompanied by Mr. Flan
ders, he went over to Quartermaster Har
bor yesterday and went aboard. The
question of salvage was not discussed,
and the amount that will be claimed by
or awarded to the Puget Sound Tug
boat Company Is all a matter of con
jecture. The storm In England has dis
arranged the cable service to such an
extent that Captain Jamleson has been
unable to receive any instructions from
his owners, and nothing will be done un
til after the verdict of the court of In
quiry Is received. 'This court, which will
consist of British Consul Laldlaw and
two British shipmasters, will meet In
Salvage cases like that of the PInmore
are so rare that no one seems to know
just how much more the rescuing tug
will be entitled to than she would have
received from an ordinary pick-up at sea.
Some men in pretty close touch with
such matters venture the opinion that the
Nelson, with her valuable cargo, will pay
as much and perhaps more thin the PIn
more. The Nelson, as she lies at Senttle,
does not make such a bad appearance
as might be expected, considering the
savage tussle she had with the elements.
The full extent of -her damages has not
yet been Teported by the surveyors, but
she was so roughly handled that some
of her beams were started or broken.

Tacoma. while the Nelson Is lying at

ABERDEEN, Wash., Dec. !. A condi

in the loss to Chehalls County of many
thousand dollars of delinquent taxes. In
fact, all the delinquent taxes for 1S95 and
prior years are imperiled. This loss wli:

there be no publication of the delinquent
tax list before January L two weeks
hence. That the list will not be published
Is more than likely. In fact, it Is almost
certain that It will not, for it will be Im
possible for the biggest printing estab
lishment in the state to set up the list
within the short time remaining, consist
ing, as It docs, of 30,000 descriptions ot
property. There is room for difference ot
opinion among lawyers as to whether the
failure to publish the list before January
1 would bar the county. The Legislature
provided that the proceedings to foreclose
the taxes of 1S35 and prior years "must
be commenced on or before January 1,
1902." The foreclosure of a tax lien being
a proceeding purely In rem, It Is held by
many authorities that such a proceeding
Is not begun until the publication of no
tice. It Is held that the act of the last
Legislature referred to Is a statute ot
limitations and that its provision as to
the time of commencing foreclosure is
mandatory, and If proceedings be not be
gun by January 1, the county will be
forever barred as to all taxes for 1S35 and
prior years, amounting in this county to
$40,000. At Seattle last week, King Coun
ty was struggling with the same ques
tion, and the Board of Commissioners
took the advice of several of the leading
members of the bar of that city and made
an extra allowance to the paper doing the

KENNEWICIC DITCH SOLD.
Attorney for the Bondholders Bid In
NORTH YAKIMA, Wash.. Dec. 15.
Saturday afternoon, at the hour of 1:20,
the Kennewlck ditch and all the other
holdings of the Dell Haven Irrigation dis
trict were sold at public auction by O. A.
Fechter, master of the Superior Court In
the proceedings, to John J. Rudkln, attor
ney lor the bondholders and others, for
the sum of $307,357 50. As soon as the
sale Is confirmed by the court the legal
procedure dissolving the Irrigation district
will have been completed, and the persons
who bid in the property will bo free to
reopen the ditch and put water upon 12,000
acres of land at the extreme eastern end
of Yakima County.
One of the principal bondholders Is
Prank Dudley, of Niagara Falls, N. Y.,
who was out here during the Summer, and
set the legal machinery In motion for the
dissolution of the district. The ditch,
which was one of the finest In the West,
was built by Eastern capitalists 10 years
ago. Shortly after completing the ditch
they organized an Irrigation district and
sold their holdings to the property-owners
under the canal, who issued bonds. In
1S9S and during the hard times which fol
lowed, It was found impossible to keep the
ditch In repair, and It fell Into disuse.
There has been no water in It for the
last four years, and it has drifted full of
sand. The sum of $50,000 will be required
to put It In order.
This Is what the promoters of the enter
prise intend to do, and do with as little
"delay as possible. The ditch may be
made ready for use by the coming Spring,
and It Is altogether likely that it will be.
A boom has been on in that part of the
country ever since the movements of the
bondholders became known. A large part
of the available land has been secured in
various ways. The land under this ditch
Is of great fertility, and the reopening of
the ditch Is of supreme Importance to
the whole eastern half of the county. Then

the moving train, were pretty badly
shaken up, and Fireman Brennan was
hurled from his train, going 30 miles an
hour, struck upon a pile of ties and sus
tained a broken arm. besides some bad
bruises. A car loaded with cattle was
damaged and one animal killed.

Petition for a Mall Roate.
The people of Klickitat County are cir
culating a petition which asks tho As
sistant Postmaster-General to establish
a mall route between Goldendale, In that
county, and Toppenlsh, in Yakima Coun
ty, a distance of 60 miles. If the depart
ment sees fit to do this It will be of great
benefit to both counties. Under existing
conditions It takes mall from three to
five days to go between the principal
places In the two counties, and It Is
equally Inconvenient for travelers.
The petition calls for a trl-weckly mail
service by way of Summit House, in the
SImcoe Mountains, and further asks that
a postoffice be established at Summit
House, with Tnurston Masters as nost-
master. A similar petition is In clrctr-

Hindrances to Success.
Many a man with great brain power
and fine physique who started In life with
good prospects has failed to attain great
success because of little Idiosyncrasies,
peculiarities of speech or manner; things
not In themselves vicious or wrong, but
whjch render him disagreeable or un
acceptable to those who have dealings
If It were possible for us to write of all
the little things which have cut down
the average of our success, and to cal
culate just how much each has contrlb-

uted to the whole. It would be most help
ful. For example, one young man's ad
vancement has been cut down 25 per cent
by bad temper, a surly, disagreeable dis
position; another's by carelessness In
dress, an unkempt or slovenly appear
ance; and yet another's by a sharp
tongue or an unkind habit of criticising.
Many a brilliant and capable stenogra
pher has failed to advance because she
had disagreeable habits which annoyed
her employer, who, while he recognized
her ability, preferred a less able sten
ographer who had amiable and agreeable
qualities. The lack of amiability has
stood In the way of advancement of
many an employe who wondered why he
did not get along.
BOND SALE IS OFF.
Lewis County Loses "What Seemed to
Have Been a Good Bargain.
CHEHALIS". Dec 14. Auditor Schooley
is In receipt of a letter from N. W. Har
ris & Co., of Chicago, who recently con
tracted for the purchase of ?100,000 of
Lewis County 20-year bonds, stating that
they find on Investigation by their attor
ney certain legal complications which
will make their final acceptance of the
bonds impossible. The difficulty lies in
the fact that the old bonds do not pur
port to be optional at the end of the 10
year period, but each contains a recital
that it is due on the 1st day of January.
1912, or before that date, and after Jan
'uary 1, at the option of the county
Section 1S50 of the Code of Washington
provides that 10 years before .these bonds
are due the Commissioners are authorized
and required annually to levy a tax suf
ficient to liquidate said bonds at maturity,
and section 1S51 provides for the Treas
urer to Issue a call for outstanding bonds
when he has $2000 of this special fund
on hand. Harris & Co.'s attorney holds
that unless the county expressly reserves
the option (on the face of the bonds) to
pay them after 10 years, the holder ot
the bond3 could not be compelled to sur
render the same unless the- funds were
on hand which the Treasurer had collect
ed for this specially levied fund; that It
Is provided by section 1S50 that the county
Is not empowered to sell refunding bonds
and from the proceeds compel the hold
ers of the old bonds to accept payment
prior to date ot maturity. A copy of
the bond which has been submitted would
Indicate that their contention Is correct.
A special session of the Commissioners
has been called for Monday to determine
what further steps should be taken in
the matter. It Is likely that the board
may negotiate for 510.000 of refunding
bonds at an early date to retire the first
510,000 of the old Issue, which will be
due January 1, 1902. The outcome of the
matter Is unfortunate for the taxpayers,
as an exceptionally good sale had been
made, at an Interest rate of about 4.09

APARTMENT HOUSE BURNED
Narrow Escape of the Tenant of a
CHICAGO. Dec. 15. The four-story
apartment building known as the dinger
flats, at the corner of Indiana avenue and
Thirty-fifth street, was burned early this
morning. The 00 tenant?, most of whom
were asleep, were aroused by the dense
smoke, and many narrow escapes from
death were spectacular and exciting. So
far as reported, every one left the build
ing by the fire-escapes or by ladders, hoist
ed to the upper windows by firemen, but
much suffering was caused by exposure
to the Intense cold. When the first detach
ment of flre-flghters arrived the tenants
were panic-stricken and rushed wildly
through the halls and apartments In their
efforts to leave the building. Loss, 517.000.

Power and Nose.
Ladles' Home Journal.
A large nose 13 always an unfailing sign
of a decided character. It belongs to the
man of action, quick to see and to seize
opportunity. A small nose indicates a
passive nature, one less apt to act, al
though he may feel as deeply. He will
have many theories, while the possessor
of a large nose will have deeds to show.
Persons with small noses are most lovingr
and sympathizing, but their friendship is
not the active kind.
A nose with the top slightly tilted Is the
sign of the heartless flirt. A long nose
shows dignity and repose. A short nose
pugnacity and a love of gayety. An
arched nose one projecting at the bridge
shows thought. A straight nose shows an
inclination toward serious subjects. A
nose that turns up slightly Indicates elo
quence, wit and Imagination. If turned
up much It shows egotism and love of
luxury. A nose that slopes out directly
from the forehead, that shows no Indent
ing between the eyes, indicates power. If
the nose Is indented deeply at the root, the
subject will be weak and vacillating. A
nose that turns down signifies that the
possessor Is miserly and sarcastic.

Notes and Queries.
Every boy at Marlborough College or who
ever was at Marlborough College, calla his
school "3Iorlborough." I do not think that all
Marlburlans are necessarily what B. calls "Hne
people." Why the pronunciation should be so
I cannot explain. The derivation of the name
of tho town ia doubtless obscure, but I gather
from tho "History of Marlborough College"
that Professor Earle suggests as the origin of
"Marl" the two words maer-leah. Maer, being
Interpreted, means a boundary, and Ieah or lea
Is a meadow or cattle run. Marl therefore
stands for "the cattle-run on the boundary."
The "borough" Is beorh or beorg, a hill or
