but nothing Incriminating could be got
ten against him. Thursday night Rellly
asked KIdd what time he had left Uma
tilla. "About E o'clock, December 5, by a pas
senger train," answered the negro. In a
matter-of-fact way. Bellly made a men
tal note that no train left the point men
tioned at the time given. KIdd was
next asked -when he left Arlington. He
said he had left on a certain freight train,
and In the conversation which followed
It was noticed that he became badly con
fused as to his journeys on freight and
passenger trains. Bellly 'knew the exact
time when certain trains were due at
stations along the road, and KIdd In
variably made mistake: purposely or oth
erwise In giving the time the trains had
left stations. Of course he strenuously
denied all knowledge of having placed
obstructions on the track.

It appears certain that the Portland postofllce Is to ba enlarged coon, but there li no def
inite knowledge as to which of the various plans for the proposed extensions will be adopt
ed. Tho echeme of Postmaster Croasmaa was for a ono-story addition on each side of the
"When Supervising Architect Taylor was here last Spring he was of the opinion that the
best plan would be toJbulld a. two-story addition on the Flfth-treet side, the lower etory
being on the level of the street. Hla scheme at that time Included the extension of the
main building to the north and south ends of the block, the two-story addition to be the
same lenrth, but be did not deem It necessary to build the addition on the Sixth-street side
Latest advices from "Washington are not clear as to whether the building la to be extend
ed to Morrison and Yamhill streets or not, Edgar IT. Lazarus Is of the opinion that the two
story addition on the Fifth-street side Is to be built only the present length of the post
offlce building, and that tho addition on tbe 81xth-street side will not be built now. The ac
companying sketch, prepared by him, shows tbe postofflce as It will appear when the two
story addition on Fifth street and the other addition en the Sixth-street side are completed.
Some of the postofflce officials who went over the ground with Supervising Architect Tay
lor when ho was here are certain that he Intends to extend the building tbe whole length of
the block, and make the two-story addition the same length, but others are of the opinion
that the building will not be so extended. This question will not bo definitely settled until
the bill providing for the necessary appropriation Is prepared.

tlons under which a large mortality from
rmeasles and other causes has occurred In
them, is fulfilled In a blue book of for
midable dimensions, entitled "Reports on
the "Working of the Refugee Camps In
the Transvaal, Orange River Colony,
Cape Colony and Natal," says the Lon
don Times. The reports cover the period
from the. j2d of March to the 20th of Sep
tember, and the whole of the ground;
every oamp being reported upon In turn.
although with a sameness which becomes
of great value, it was extremely difficult
to obtain their application.
Dr. Franks, again, declares that "pov
erty, dirt, and Ignorance reign supreme."
In one tent he found two children very
ill with tho sequelae of measles, one with
lung complication, the other with peri
tonitis. He stooped down to examine
them; the children were in their ordin
ary clothes, lying on mats. In order to
sec the abdomen, he had to undo some
of the clothes: the skin beneath was as
lations of dirt. To see tho skin, it would
navo been necesyary to Scrape the dirt
off. Under such conditions, he says, the
wonder is not that so many die, but that
any recover. Another source of mor
tality has been childbirth; as might be
expected, when the Importance of clean
liness to the mother Is considered. Al
though there is a maternity marquee. Ig
norant prejudice prevails among the ex
pecting mothers, who prefer being at
tended in their own tents, by their own
people, a set of untrained and ignorant
women, with the consequence that the
mortality In childbirth has been very
high. In one case, the details of which
are recorded, the midwife inflicted fatal
injuries upon the patient.
"With regard to the general order, clean
liness, and scavenging of the camps, we
read that a certain amount of work Is
done, under direction, by some of the
burghers; but the difficulty of having It
done effectively Is great. Apart from
payment or compulsion, the Idea of help
ing the helpless does not exist In the mind
of the stalwart burgher. Over and over
again a woman whose husband Is fight
ing, or a prisoner of war, has to sit and
nurse her children, and may ask in vain
of a fine, well-built, noble "patriot" that
he will chop her wood or fetch her ra
tions or her medicine. His reply Is, "I
have no time," or something to that ef
fect There Is no such thing as gal
lantry among them unless paid forj whon
another term may be applied to It. "We
commend the reports as a whole to the
careful consideration of our readers, who
will certainly rise from their perusal with
new Ideas not only of the Boer charac
ter, but also of the difficulties which Eng
lish officers, doctors, and nurses have
fought against, and have at least par
tially overcome. In their endeavors to
bring home to the families of the "ene

ASTORIA ON THE BOOM.
almrg-'t wearisome, as page after page dls- 1 black as a Kaffir's, covered with accumu
cioes only the same dismal narrative of
a Mato of tilings An which the "most" ear
nest efforts to provide for the comfort
'nd security of the inmates were to a
Bm&t extent baffled by the almost incon
ceivable ignorance, obstinacy and fllthi
ziess of the Inmates themselves. In these
circumstances the mortality was unques
tionably large, and was chiefly among
Measles is a disease which, when It oc
curs In healthy children who are prop
erly cared for, and are living In favora
ble surroundings. Is attended by only an
Insignificant mortality, but which, under
conditions the reverse of these, under
such conditions even as exist in the slums
of some English manufacturing towns,
is attended by a very large mortality,
chiefly arising from Inflammation of the
lungs, either bronchitis or pneumonia,
brought on by exposure to cold during
or soon after the presence of the rash.
To bear this In mind will assist our ap
preciation of the report by Major-General
Maxwell, who, ufter tracing the high
death rate from measles to the extremely
cold nights, goes on to say that the Boer
another is greatly to blame; she Insists on
lending her children, and refuses to obey
he orders of the, doctor or the advice
-of the nurse. The Boer remedy for
measles, apparently. Is a tea made of
goat's dung, which Is administered by
tbe mothers with deplorable results. An
other favorite remedy appears to be an
absolute refusal to wash the children, or
to allow any attempt at cleanliness. Dr.
Spencer, again, describes the deplorable
ignorance and lethargy among those re
sponsible for the children suffering from
measles. The more enlightened people
p'janed up blankets Inside their tentu,
sind so made them warm at night; they
also kept them ventilated by day, and
thus avoided the great contrast which
quickly sets In at sunset between the co'd
of the night and a stuffy heat by day.
Among the majority, however, no in
structions upon these Important details
have had the slightest effect. Medicines
and nourishments are neglected, and the
pernicious use of "arnppels," containing
they neither know nor care what (we
fear we must plead guilty to correspond
ing Ignorance), very largely obtained.
Children are carried out into the town
even, or held by mothers In their arms
during cooking operations In the open air,
when they have measles upon them. An
other report by Dr. Frank tells- us that a
recent remedy among the Boers, no mat
ter what the complaint. Is green paint.
Three children named Smith were Buffer
ing from some Illness the nature of which
he was unable to ascertain. They were
painted all over with green paint, with
tho exception of their faces. Two of
them, a boy aged 4 and a girl aged 7,
-were admitted to the hospital; the boy
died the same day and the girl the fol
lowing day, both of acute arsenical pois
oning; the third child, aged 4 months,
died before the others were brought Into
the hospital. It is hardly necessary to
mention that many green pigments are
arsenical compounds, or that the action
of a coat of paint would have been in
jurious In any case. Dr. Aymard was
sent for to see a child of 2 who wa."
unconscious. He found on the table in
the tent an assemblage of Dutch reme
dies, all of which were being" adminis
tered at the same time without any doc
tor's orders. They were Hoffman's drops
(containing ether); ecsenz dulcls (contain
ing opium); red powder (containing tar
tar emetic); Jamaica ginger and "red
drops" of unknown composition. At the
dato of the report the child "continued
unconscious," and was presumably the
subject of opium poisoning. Anotner in
stance worth quoting is that of a baby
named Schutte, aged 4 months, who was
suffering from bronchitis., and was or
dered by the doctor to be kept entirely
on milk. The mother refused to give It
milk, and gave sardines Instead. Tne
child died in two days.
In page after page of the report the
same story repeats Itself. A girl in the
camp at MIddelburg. suffering from renal
dropsy, the result,, of a chill when recov
ering from enteric fever, was wrapped up
by her mother, from her hips to her
feet, in a poultice of horse-dung, which
the mother explained was "taking the
swelling down, from her face," The goafs
able Interest Is felt In the Industrial de
partment In the flotation of the new Im
perial Tobacco Company, with the avowed
object of fighting the American invaders.
This company has the Immense capital of
15.000.000. This Is adversely criticised
In some quarters, where It Is asserted that
the company has no expectation of pay
ing dividends upon anything more than
5,000.000 of preferred shares. But It is
believed that a long and hard contest is
ahead between the great opposing forces.

Engineer Idaurlce Cavanaugh all as de
tailed in a confession made Saturday by
KIdd to Detective Joseph P. Rellly, of the
O. R. 5: N. Co., Stamps the crime as one of
the most cold-blooded In the history of
train-wrecking for a number of years.
Up to Saturday noon KIdd was only
held as a witness In the case, and the
chain of evidence in making the prisoner
confess that he alone whecked the train,
j was responsible for the engineer's death
and endangered the lives of a large num
ber of passengers, is very creditable to De
tective Rellly's ability. The opinion Is
expressed on all sides that Rellly Is en
titled to every cent of the $1000 reward
Rellly's detective instincts were Instant
ly at work. "Why did Kidd talk so volub
ly and tell different stories as to his
boarding trains along the road? Prob
ably to conceal some other facts. Feel
ing suro that he had landed his man.
Rellly began another talk with KIdd Sat
urday morning about 10 o'clock, and
showed him conclusively that it was bet
ter to tell the truth about his meeting
different trains at times not mentioned
on time-tables. KIdd went on to say
that on one occasion he had paid a mythi
cal conductor 51 20 for the privilege of
riding on a freight train at a certain time.

"Since that time the site has been un

something of the crime, and he told the
officers that he had heard a gang of four
or five tramps, who had been put off a
freight train near the spot where the
wreck occurred, make threats against the
train crew and the railroad, and had
made this declaration: "There will be
a train wrecked before night." These
tramps were arrested at Grant station,
and taken to Jail at The Dalles, where

aged Dy an ulcer or inflammation, symp
toms of disordered function arise. Pre
matureness, loss of vitality and the dis

symptoms of some damage to the repro
ductive system, caused by a contracted
disorder or early dissipation. In looking
for the location of this damage we gen

Inflamed prostate gland. As this gland
Is the very center ot the reproductive

otherwise the patient goes from bad to worse The essential point In all of
them Is the necessity of the cure of the focus of the trouble In the prostate.
Many men have unsuccessfully treated for a weakness which never existed,

the stomach, that will even benefit this class of cases. Our plan of treat
