counsel for the miners.
"Yes, sir." -was the reply.
"Cross-examine." said the lawyer.

Special Policeman Is Afraid of On
slaught by Crowd of Boys.
Thinking he was about to be attacked
by a crowd of email boys. Special Offi
cer W. A. Ogilbee drew bis revolver to
protect himself, whjle he placed under
arrest A. R. Neeley. who had called him
abusive names. Neeley is a youthful-
looking offender, but after the officer had
repeated to the court, the list of epithets
the youngster naa -euDsuiuteo. lor nts
real name. Municipal Judge Hogue
promptly fined the boy $10 for using abus
ive language. Mr. Ogilbee has charge of
Blank's Hall at Thirteenth and Powell
streets, and has an officer's star to enable
him to protect the building. Special ex
ercises were being held in the hall, and
a crowd of boys had assembled before it
was time for the exercises to begin. Nee
ley, who. It la claimed, was a leader of
the gang, had a spider attached to the
end ot a rubber cord, which he would
throw Into people's faces, and then with
draw It quickly. This performance an
gered the special officer, and he was still
more angry when tho bold youngster
openly threw the spider Into his face. He
made a quick grab for It, but failed to
catch It and tried to take It away from
the boy. The crowd stood together, and
to help their companion commenced to
push around the officer to force him away
from Neeley.
"I'm an officer of the law." he Insisted
and displayed his star. The boys did not
see an Imposing policeman's uniform, and
wcro undaunted at the startling an
nouncement. The officer finally caught
hie victim and placed him under arrest
"Fight." cried the boys, "don't let that
fellow arrest you," whereupon the officer
began to fear that he was to be attacked
by the whole crowd. He drew his gun
from his pocket and ordered them all to
stand back. A pin could have been h&ard
arop we next moment, and the officer
marched his prisoner away In safety.
George J. Cameron appeared In defense
of tiro boy, and questioned the prosecut
ing witness closely regarding the circum
stances which warranted his "gun play.'
"I wasn't afraid of Neeley," he ex
plained, gazing In defiance at the boy de
fendant, "but I was afraid the whole
gang would Jump on me and try to get
nim away, i nere was some very bad lan
guage used, and they threatened to break
my head."
ElBht-Year-OId Mary lllckson Wan
ders nt Xlght on the Street.
Afflicted with a disease which caused
ner continual discomfort, deserted hv
parents and left alone while the people
who were taking care of her sat around
in North End dives to listen to the music,
little 8-year-old Mary HIckson wandered
Into the street and was found Wednesday
night between 10 and 12 o'clock by an
East Side "policeman. She has been turned
over to Officer Hawley of the Boys' nnd
Girls' Aid Society and placed In a hospi
tal for treatment. When found she was
shivering with cold and crying bitterly.
She complained that she was very hun
gry and that she had been afraid to stay
alone. She says that her papa is living,
but that she docs not know where he In.
Officer Hawley knows something of the
little orphan's history. She was taken
charge of by the Boys' and Girls' Aid So
ciety over a year ago, and placed In a hos
pital for treatment. During the time she
was In charge of the phyriclans her con
dition Improved and her suffering was
greatly relieved. Her father meanwhile
thought he was In a condition to take care
of his child, and insisted upon taking her
from the hospital. From that time the
officers lost -lght of her until recently.
The father was not able to care for her
longer and placed her with a family,
whose name, the little girl says. Is John
eon. The home was not pleasant, and
rather than stay she had wandered Into
the cold street, alone and poorly dresred.
"I am hungry," raid she when she was
found by the officer, "and I do not llko
to stay alone. The people I am staying
with go to Fritz's and Blailer's every
evening to listen to the'muolc and do not
come home until late at night."

Dnl-rnrla May Flight Turkey nnd
Other States Intervene Austria
nnd RuHsIn to Interfere.
LONDON. Feb. C-The Dally News this
morning starts a big agitation on ,Tie
Macedonlm question. It publishes a
three-column letter from its "special com
missioner" at Dubnltza, Bulgaria, describ
ing in great detail alleged Turkish atroci
ties as related by the fugitives there. The
correspondent declares that 30.000 refugees
from Macedonli have fled to Bulgaria on
that account.
The Times correspondent at Vienna also
discusses the question and says Count
v tlserhelnvs assurances were possibly
founded upon the asumptlon that nothing
more serious than a struggle between
BulgarH and Turkey was to be apppre-
henwej and that such struggle would prob
ably remain Isolated, Servia and Greece
maintaining neutrality toward Turkey.
In any case, continues the correspondent.
the situation Is viewed with apprehension
and uneasiness prevails concerning Ger
manics proposed sympathetic attitude to
ward Turkey, and the publication of the
Austro-RusFlan programme is awaited
with Impatience as being a possible lever
for the prevention of trouble.
Austrinn Minister Quiet Rumors of
in Impending Rebellion.
LONDON, Feb. E. There has been no
development in the Balkan situation since
the publication on January 23 of the
French yellow book, detailing the Franco-
Russian efforts during the past year to
Induce Turkey to Institute Macedonian re
forms, which gave a gloomy account of
the situation in Macedonia. In Vienna
it Is stated that the powers have not yet
presented Count LamsdorfTs reform pro
posals to Turkey. The supposition Is that
the Russian and Austrian Ministers, being
agreed In principle, left the elaboration ot
the reform details to the Ambassadors In
Constantinople, who found It difficult to
agree upon the course to pursue, and. at
Italy's Instigation, suggested a modifica
tion of the demands, of which tho pub
lication Is dally expected.
Numerous unconfirmed sensational ru
mors aro current with regard to tho ex
tended rising in Macedonia In tho Spring.
and some serious Austrian and Russian
papers assume that the question must
soon be forced to a solution. Count "Wal-
serhelm, the Austrian Minister of Na
tional Defense, however, in addressing the
committee on Austrian military bills to
day, reiterated that the situation was
peaceful and that no ground existed foi
a mobilization tot the army or any ex
traordinary measures.

Falls Over European Politics as Re.
belllon Becomes Assured.
NEW YORK, Feb. 6. "While the Ven
ezuela affair still has precedence as tho
leading foreign question, says the Lon
don correspondent of the Tribune, there
Is a general feeling in Fleet street that
It will speedily be overshadowed by tho
Macedonian question.. A formidable In
surrection against the Turks Is expected
in the early Spring by nearly all writers
who are following the course of events
In the Balkans.
Predictions of a similar nature have
been made year after year, but never
with equal confidence since the prelimi
nary stage of the last war between Rus
sia and the Forte. The Turkish Govern
ment clearly expects trouble, and the
Russian and Austrian Governments also
dread a movement from Bulgaria, which
they cannot control, since they cannot
agreo upon a Joint policy.
German Customs Dispute Ends.
BERLIN. Feb. fx The customs contro
versy regarding American wheat, which
it was claimed contained a mixture of
Canadian wheat, has been settled by tho
refunding of the extra duty. The com
mittee of Hamburg and Berlin grain ex
porters who were called In by tho customs
authorities reported that It was Impossible
to prove cases where Canadian wheat was
mixed with American wheat. It is be
lieved by the German shippers that the
recent agreement with the American ex
changes that Canadian wheat certificates
must be marked "bonded" will remove all
cause for disagreements in the future.

Old Lords Block on Union Avenne Is
Like the Leaning: Tower.
Tho old two-story brick building built
by Charles Logus in the early days of
East Portland on the northwest corner of
Union avenue and East "Washington
street, condemned seme time ago as dan
gerous, seems to be constantly settling.
The entire structure is twisted out of
plumb. On the Union avenue side, the
piers lean toward the north, nnd the
building crowds heavily against the row
of wooden structures, until It would seem
they would be pushed over In that direc
tion. Tho door and window frames are
wrenched out of shape on both the Union
avenue and Washington street sides.
The causo of this settling of the build
ing is attributed to the fact that the walls
were built on filled ground. It began to
settle sooif niter it was completed and
occupied. Iron rods were extended
through tho walls in all directions, but
nothing could arrest the steady sinking:
It is the opinion of architects that the
structure cannot be saved, and that the
only thing to do Is to remove it. The
rooms have not been occupied for sev
eral years on account of Its dangerous
condition. Whether there Is Immediate
danger of collapse Is not known, but It
certainly does not look safe from the
Montrtvllln Hoard of Trade Anxious
for Improvement of Streets.
At the meeting of the Montavllla Board
of Trade Wednesday night tho matter of
extending Hubbard street south from the
base line, 00 feet wide, for about half a
mile, and the widening of the county
cross-road to a uniform width of SO feet,
were discussed. There was quite a large
attendance, and much interest was shown
in these matters. The new street begins
east of Captain Schneider's place of busi
ness. Tho matter to be decided Js whether
Mr. Sullivan will give 30 feet from his
property. It this street be opened, it will
be a good thing for the district north and
south of the Base Line road.
Good progress Is being made on the
widening of the county cross-road to 50
feet between the Section and Baso Line
road?. E. N. Stevens, a member of the
road committee, reported that a petition
was being circulated, and was receiving
many signatures, and that the prospects
for the widening arc excellent. North of
the Base Line road the effort to widen the
highway Is meeting with success. It is
now proposed to continue the widening
through to the Columbia Slough road.
There will te a mass meeting of resi
dents Intel ted In this matter tomorrow
evening In the Union Church. If this road
can be widened straight through, it will
make a fine thoroughfaro. and will open
the Columbia Slough district to Monta

Balllrr of Snpreme Court Falls Vic
tim to Paralysis.
SALEM. Feb. 6. Flnley C. Perrlne. for
22 years past bailiff of the Supreme Court
of Oregon, died at his home In this city
at 1:55 o'clock this morning, after three
days' Illness, of paralysis of the brain. .
He was 57 years of age. born In Indiana,
and came to Oregon 27 years ago. He
has been a member of Pacific Lodge of
Masons since 1S30. a member of Al Kader
Temple. Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, and
was an oracer oi nign rank In the Grand
Commandery of Masons.
An editor down in Pennsylvania refers
to the Standard Oil Croesus as "John D.
Rocky Baptist.
The first years of our life
are the most important in our
existence. That is the time to
build the foundation forsturdy
manhood in the future. In
fancy is, therefore, the most
vital period for proper nourish;
ing. A baby secures the best
possible nourishment from a
healthy mother, but unfortu
nately very few mothers can
nurse their children. What,
then, is the next best food ?
Cow's milk should not be
solely depended upon for it
lacks a proper amount of
what a child needs most cell
buildingsubstance. Moreover,
it is said by authorities on the
subject, that the frequent hand
ling such milkundergoes.from
the cow to the time it is fed to
a child, robs it of much of its
original value. Its quality
varies and its grades are nu
merous; the stomach of an
infant is much too delicate to
make up such defects in its
food supply. Scott's Emulsion
simpKfies the food problem for
children and counteracts these
The artificial foods that are
so largely used very rarely
contain milk, hence they im
perfectly nourish the child.
Evena small amount of Scott's
Emulsion, one-fourth to a half
teaspoon! ul, in the child'sbottl'e
seems to be of special value
in adding a very important
element to the food. Its bene
ficial results are quickly seen
Scott's Emulsion is based
on this true food principle. It
provides nourishment for a
child in the easiest, quickest
and most palatable form. No
baby is too young, no stomach
too delicate to receive and re
tain Scott's Emulsion. Even
a few drops in a child's milk
seems to provide considerable
nourishment that cannot be
otherwise secured except in a
mother's milk.
If a mother whose milk is
not furnishing a child with
proper nourishment will her
self use Scott's Emulsion it
will greatly improve the qual
ity of the milk. It benefits
the mother as well as the
A child of any age will be
benefitted by Scott's Emulsion.
It furnishes the means to meet
and overcome the strain of
growing. Being prepared for
easy digestion Scott's Emul
sion does not tax the stomach
or disturb the digestive organs
of children.
Its great value as a child's
food comes from the nourish
ment it gives, the ease with
which it enters the system,
the quickness with which it
brings about a change for
the better and the permanency
of its benefits. The child who
is not doing as well as it should
needs Scott's Emulsion.
