Short, but exceedingly brisk, will be the fight in the Republican municipal primary campaign, ending In a direct primary election next Tuesday1.

"While no word is uttered that distinctly declares that the fight Is between the two factions of the Republican party that have been warring for years, the manner In which one faction refers to the other shows that It Is only by an effort that the names of those two old factional leaders are kept out of this city campaign.

Weber, after carefully buttoning nis coat. announced that he was ready and with little loss of time the Sheriff brought him to the jail. The prison doors had scarcely clanged behind him before he asked to "be allowed to consult with an attorney. The latest theory In the Weber mur der case is that the murderer shot the father first, then, as the sister appeared in the hall, he shot her and then the mother, seeing what had been done. screamed and started from him, when he shot her. She continued, on across the room and, raising the left hand, took down the telephone receiver to call for help, at which time she received the second shot. which penetrated the body just under the left arm. Jhe child being the only -one left, the murderer struck him over the head and felled him. The operator at the Central Telephone office says that the line that the Weber residence is on showed "busy" at about a half hour after the Are was discovered by Charles Henley. Adolph Weber was seen in jail this morning. He had nothing to say beyond that he had a good night's rest. He ate a good breakfast and called for .some milk, which the jailer did not have. No effort has been made as yet to get the young man out on a writ Tjy his attorneys. Weber's description is said to tally with the robber "who recently robbed the bank here. It will be recalled that after the daring robbery in the middle of the day, the robber drove rapidly down the road leading to Newcastle for about a half mile and then left the rig and took to the hills. At this time T. S. Palmer went to his home tmi, being an expert rifle shot, took his rifle with him and went after the robber. Upon reaching the spot where the buggy was abandoned, he noticed a man climbing the hill on the opposite side of the road from that which the robber was supposed to have taken. TTnnn nvertaklnsr the man he found him to be Adolph Weber. Julius Weber missed one of his home-made money bags about this time, which tallied very closely with the one used by the man who held up the hanic Tonne Weber asked for the dally pa pers 'this afternoon and wanted to see them alL He read the various accounts very critically, criticising every discrep ancy and threatening libel suits. But even with It all he talked more about the reported death of Kurokl, the Japanese General, than anything else. He was very much interested and talked quite freely on the war, but he had nothing to say about his own case. Weber looked much better than he did when on the stand last night, was not nervous and said he had had a very good sleep. He says he has no fear of con viction and believes he will be turned loose at the preliminary trial. No new evidence has developed today except the finding of the pistol ball that penetrated Mr. Webers body. The doc tor's at the autopsy found the wound and last night Undertaker Walsh found the l)Ullet. - It was of the same caliber as that of the two found in the bodies of Mrs. Weber and Miss Weber.

Aberdeen Candidates for Mayor. ABERDEEN, Wash., Nov. 13. (Special.) Now that the contest for the county election is over, the voters of the city are turning their attention to the campaign for city officials. There are several an nounced candidates for the office of Mayor, the most prominently so far men tioned being John Lindstrom, the ship builder. Mr. Lindstrom served several terms in the Council. Eugene France, a capitalist. Is also candidate, and Representative Benn is said to be desirous of the place. There doesn't seem to be any. scramble for the other positions except as to the Council, which will be largely composed of a new element. side and Dr. J. N. Smith on the other. it Is easy to determine. In general, the constituency of the two sides engaged in the contest. The Smith people say. "We can't afford to let those fellows get control of the city," and the Croisan workers declare that "that crowd must not be given the upper hand in the city affairs' and to this extent the exist ence of the old line of demarkation Is expressed. S. A Hughes, president of the Work- lngmen's Republican Club, Is the third candidate In the primary election, and has no factional affiliations that will Identify him in any way with the old Republican contest. While there is a contest between S. A McFadden and Wylle A. Moores for the nomination for City Recorder, and be tween Frank Meredith and Fred Haas for City Treasurer, these contests will be mild as compared with the fight over the office ot Chief of Police. The city cam paign will differ from the warm fights of several years ago In two respects, that the saloons are lined up on neither side, and the electric light company is kindly to this new style of putting up fish .and offered battle. He had built up a good trade even In Europe for salted salmon. He got $10 a barrel for his product. It took 15 salmon to make a barrel, and he had to furnish the barrel.

That there is enough salmon packed and storedln the warehouses of the various canning firms to supply the world for the next three years, as has been repeatedly reported In packing circles recently, is emphatically denied by Charles Corby, selling agent for the Pacific Packing & Navigation Company.

This has caused the neighbors to conclude that Mrs. Brown waa either burned to death or was overcome by the heat. This theory is not generally accepted by the officials who conducted tne inquest. who will not be satisfied that a Acrime has not been committed unless soma ex planation is made for the presence of a blood-stained knife that was found beside the woman's body, and for the further fact that the door to the house was locked, with the key on the outside.

It happened some weeks ago The Marquam management had been hav ing a good deal of trouble about gallery tickets. The scheme worked on them was as follows: You bought a gallery or a rear-row-bal cony seat, and at the end of the first act you came out. getting the usual return check at the door. When you re-entered, you didn't go back upstairs but select ed the best -meant 52 seat you could find. Jake Is said to have worked the game successfully a num ber of times. Helllg & Pangle finally determined to put an end to the b u s I n ess, and so formed the habit of zaklng a good look at all who came in with return checks. On this particular occasion Jake had found a good seat. utcs, will you, and change seats with me? I want to play a little joke on a fresh usher." Tho man agreed., and the exchange was made, none too soon, for a moment later an usher came down and tapped Jake on the shoulder. "'Is this your seat?" he asked. "Well. I guess I paid for It." "Have you got a seat check?" "I guess I have." "Let me see it, please." (There was a note of triumph in tho usher's voice.) "What do you want to see It for? No body's asking for this seat is there?" "No; but you'll have to show me your check." Jake slowly searched in one pocket, and then another, finally producing the check. "There it Is," he said, haughtily. The usher was nonplussed, and, of course, was forced to excuse himself. "Well," commented Jake, with a fine air of Indignant resignation.

It would be an easy matter to pro tect the vines from the first light early frosts, but Mr. Scott said It would not pay, that his customers wanted Winter strawberries at the same price of Sum mer berries, three boxes for 25 cents, and that he was not warranted in going to the expense of fixing up a Winter crop. This Illustrates In part the embryonic condition of affairs here. The commis sion men publish statements that any one making a specialty of gardening on Coos Bay would do well, that the market is never fully supplied with home prod uce. It is true that the Bay imports from California something In nearly every line of garden truck to help out tho home supply. On the other hand, the gardeners say that their customers will pay no more for fresh home-grown Win ter vegetables than they have to pay for the stale Imported articles. But all these things will straighten themselves out in time, as population increases and society and business become better organized. The commission men will tell you Just now there Is a good demand at 13 and 20 cents a box for all the strawberries- that can be had. But the gardener will tell you there Is no market for strawberries at this time of year; and If there is, peo ple want them three boxes for 25 cents. It would seem that here Is a case where all that was needed was simply to get together. However, this has nothing to do with the quality and size of the berries. Twelve strawberries to the box Is no un common thing. Mrs. Scott, in describing them, said some of the berries were as large as apples. The yield is prolific Mr. Scott last year' picked 4000 boxes from 13 rows across a small lot. He is planning to double the size of his patch next year. and is looking forward to shipping ber ries to the San Francisco market. At the Scott home, on the Bteep hillside of the canyon, is a beautiful clump of white cedar trees., This waa fitted up as a sort of picnic ground, an arbor where people could repair In the heat of the day or the cool of the evening (the temper ature here Is about the same night and day) to eat strawberries and cream and other delicacies. Prices were made to conform to the size of the patron and the length of his pocketbook. You could get a fine sample for 5 cents, or a generous fill of strawberries and the celebrated Coos Bay dairy cream for 20-cents, It was supposed this resort would castlo to take on a cargo of coal for Honolulu.

He hates a racket or a bolster- nice young ladies, explained Mrs. Scott, but the gallants had no incomes that would-justify indulgence In such luxuries. and this year the stand went Into desue tude and the benches and tables are cov ered with growing vines. It will take the future to appreciate such an institution. Strawberries are not the only things grown In the Scott gardens. Diversified gardening Is the rule. Berries and vege tables all find a place on the one piece of ground. And this pays, for all the mar ket Is depressed by California competition. Mr. Scott kept track of-his income from but fastened to the wood and made ready for service. The marvel of it all is tho amount of manual labor that Is saved by the genius of the inventor. First come the scrapers, doing all the work of the- hand 3hovel, yet two men only are needed for each machine one to guide, the horses, and the other to adjust the blade and chute. With the steam shovel are an engineer and his assistant, for the shovel fills and empties its scoop Into the cars with out the touch of a hand. Compressed air unloads the cars, but the dirt train ,io a, half acre one year and it was WOO. He usuallv has half a dozen men aboard uenes any one eisu m mia bccuuu iu f0r emergencies, Desmes tne engineer and 'speak out.' "He was sitting in the office of the Wi nona Hotel the oth er day, trying to read a newspaper. A bunch of three or four yokels of fhe vicinity started up a game of draw at a table close to him. and they made more noise with their penny-ante and 5-cent-limit than the rall- marl man frttiM on. Cleaned them eat." ure " 'You fellows must be .having a sky- llmlt game, from the racket you're mak ing,' he said. Thus addressed, the crowd stopped and stared at him. Maybe you'd like to butt into this yourself and Arid out what limit we're playln'?' said one .old fellow, with his whiskers full of tobacco juice. " 'AH right: I will, if you don't mind.' said the conductor; and he moved up to the table. "In 'just 20 minutes by the clock, he had cleaned them out. There wasn't enough money left with the others to buy a stick of candy. " 'Now,' he said, as he went back to his paper, 'perhaps you lobsters will let me have a little peace.' " It is agreed that the most profitable crop Is celery. Celery can be harvested here almost every month In the year. It bleaches nicely, and In this moist climate Is always crisp and tender- The whl$e plume, which Is the Summer celery, suc cumbs with the- first heavy frosts In De cjember, but the pink plume stands Jn the field till long after the first of the year. "and is always Teady for the table. A stalk of celery weighing three pounds brings 10 cents. It Is estimated that a: acre of celery would bring about in a season. Mr. Scott is also preparing to grow celery for the Eureka and San Francisco markets, where the Coos Bay plants are prized very highly. The logan berry is one of Mr. scotts specialties. This berry was produced arti ficially by Judge lxgan, of Santa cruz, Cal., about 16 years ago, as a cross be tween the rasbperry and the blackberry. But It was not until It came to Oregon that It found Its true home. This berry has a rich red color. Is an inch and half long and two Inches In circumfer ence. It ha3 small seeds, a solid heart and the blended flavors of the two ber ries. It Is a fine table berry and makes oeucious jams ana jemes. .1 -itt 1 Jl i.n The vines have a long, Blended growth uicic vv-c haikxij uj use without suckers and must De uea up on trellis work.

On the tracklaylng train two men load au tne ties on tne tie car. and one man moves it to and fro. For bolting? the rails and handling them on the rollway six men are enough. About twice as many arrange the ties on the roadbed and fasten the rails. Add the locomotive crew, and you have the actual worklnV. force. In putting the finishing touches to the track perhaps 20 men may be needed after the ballast train hasJ passed over it. A Distinction. N New Orleans Times-Democrat.

Like most others In his profession, he sel dom keeps his pockets full of money. He found it extremely hard to "save up," chiefly because he couldn't help being a mark for habitual "touchers." A month ago he resolved to begin sav ing. He would harden his heart, he -fond ly thought, and would turn the cold shoul der and .the glassy eye upon all requests for "a couple of plunks until Saturday.' Ho, decided that the best plan would be to j coma, or North Coos River.

Its special function is to repair the waste of. the body when the ordinary food does not nourish, and. this mean6 that it is useful in- many cases which are indicated by wasting. these new vines was the astonishing growth of 20 feet In six months. In the Scott garden Is 1100 feet of trellis work, and in the season of last July 600 gallons of logan berries brought 50 cents a gallon. Next year Mr. Scott will have- double the number of feet ot trellis, and double the yield of berries. It was 11 years ago that Mr. Scott bought three logan berry "briars from a California nurseryman at 51 .each and planted them In his garden on. the M111I- WeH scad 70a a sample free.
