AFTER THE BAD ONES NOW
FEDERAL GRAND JURY TACKLES
POSTOFFICE ROBBERIES. '
Evidence Against Gang Is Strong
and Indictments Likely to Be
Returned Other Bills.
Captain J. E. Neilson, master of the
tng Star, and the Star Sand Company
were Indicted yestertsey afternoon by the
Federal grand jury, charged with throw
ing refuse Into the Willamette River.
That Captain Neilson would he indicted
seemed evident, for the case agamst him
was strong, but it was not expected that
Indictments would be returned against
the company, which is composed of a
number of prominent business men.
The indictments against Neilson and
the sand company were presented to
Judge Wolverton when court convened
after the noon recess, after which the
grand Jury began hearing evidence in the
Sellwood and St. Johns postofflce robber
ies. The evidence which the Government has
against Frank Kelly, Frank Wayne,
Claude J. Eggleston, Charles Anderson,
Lewis L. Smith, "Toots" Bryant, F. S.
Rankin and William Carter is Btrong.
They are accused of robbing the two
postoffices and it is believed are guilty
of a number of other robberies.
Captain Archie Turnbull, a member of
the Portland fire department, was also
mixed up with the gang. It was Turn
bull who sold the stolen stamps. "Toots"
Bryant also acted as a fence, but both
have confessed and it was through their
confession that the postal inspectors were
able to fasten the crime on the gang.
Ralph Jackson, who had been indicted
for cattle stealing, was arraigned yester
day and pleaded not. guilty and was held
under 11000 bonds. When taken Into
court Jackson was asked how long he had
lived on the Klamath Indian reservation.
The Indian gazed longingly out of the
window for a moment and said:
"Maybe 100 years. I don't know."
The answer staggered the court for a
second. Jackson did not have the ap
pearance of a centenarian, so he asked
him how old he was. The Indian, still
"Forty-six, 47 perhaps."
PORTLAND LEADS COUNTRY
Bank Clearings for Two Weeks Show
For two consecutive weeks Portland's
gain in bank clearings has exceeded those
of every' other city in the country. Ac
cording to Bradstreet's report for the
week ending April 25, the bank clearings
at Portland aggregated $6,944,000, repre
senting an Increase over the clearings for
the corresponding week last year of 75.3
per cent. Thus the Rose City retains the
lead against all competitors.
An increase In bank clearings Is re
ported for other Pacific Coast and North
west cities, but, comparatively, Portland
is far in the lead. For the week clearings
of the Los Angeles banks show a gain
of 33.7 Der cent. Spokane 45.9, while the
same increase, 12.7 per cent, is reported
for Tacoma and Seattle. Next to Port-,
land, with its phenomenal increase of
75.3 per cent, comes Mobile, Ala., witn
69.2 per cent.
For the week ending April is fortiana s
increase was 64.7 per cent over the same
period a year ago. This was considered
a remarkably gratifying showing, but the
per centage of Increase tor tne louowing
week has exceeded that showing. Of
more than 100 of the principal cities cov
ered in the report, only 24 show a de
crease in bank clearings, indicating a
generally prosperous condition through
out the country. Only one city of tne
list of 24, Fremont, Neb., is located west
nf the Mississippi River. The per centage
of its decrease in bank clearings was 20.4
for the week covered in the report.

woman. Miss Edna Ham, is to be prose
outed, regardless of the fact that the
complaining witness in the case has left
the city. The girl's mother, Mrs. George

HEARD IN THE
pr FAMILIAR figure in the Imperial
f Hotel rotunda these days is George
Collins, formerly of Salem. Mr. Collins is
a product of the State of Maine, and
came to Oregon in the '80s. He is a pow
erfully built man, and, despite his 71
years, is erect, sturdy and rugged.
From 18S3 to 18S4 Mr. Collins was warden
of the State Penitentiary, and from 1SS4
to 1887 he was superintendent of that in
stitution. At 9 A. M., July 2. 1883. occurred the
great prison break at Salem, in which
Mr. Collins was a central figure, which
resulted in the death of several convicts
and the wounding of Warden Collins.
Fourteen desperate convicts seized Mr.
Collins, and, using him as a shield, rushed
to the south gate of the prison. A convict
on either side, each with a knife held in
close proximity to Collins" neck, ordered
him to command Fence Guard Stlllweil to
hand down his gun.
"Don't do It, Stlllweil." said the plucky
warden; "do your duty!"
A convict named Smith struck the war
den a blow en the arm with an iron bar,
and another desperado gave him a slight
tab on the forehead, and then Stlllweil
McKern, "Sitka Jack," Waters and
Brown, ringleaders; were shot dead in
their tracks. The remainder of the gang
got out of the gate and escaped. Beau-
champ was killed, and Glenn, Bradshaw
and Munsneia were wounded and cap
tured. Of the 14 men concerned in the emeute
all were either killed or captured except
Disbrow, who is still at large. Dlsbrow
was a short-termer and was sent up from.

Joined on to the arrowshaft," said Clerk
jonn item, or the Perkins Hotel, yester
day. "1 am told that there is but one arrow
like it in this oountry. My friend, in
presenting it to me. gave something of
the history of this peculiar pattern of
arrow. It seems that for certain offenses
among the savage population of the Phil
ippines, there is an unwritten law which
condemns the offender to be tied to
tree and shot through the heart with
this arrow. -
It is said to make a frightful wound,
and if the aim of the bowman is sure.
death is instantaneous. I prize the ar
row highly as a souvenir, and without
boasting, I believe I have one of the
finest collections of Philippine curios in
"It seems to me," said an extremely
practical man who leaned up against the
office bar, and heard the statement, "that
those Filipinos go to a great deal of
needlese labor in making such an exquisite
Instrument as you have described,- in
order to kill a fellow.. Why, they could
easily avoid all that work by knocking
the fellow on the head with a club!"
"If you had been born a Filipino, and
could have had your way about It, nearly
all the people In Portland might now have
a collection of Filipino stove wood hang
ing on their walls," said Mr. Held, with
a wltnerlng look.
HB Oregon Winter climate is good
enough for me, hereafter," re
marked John Redmond, a well known
farmer and fine stock breeder, of Mc
Minnville, .yesterday at the Perkins Hotel,
where he was staying for the day.
"Last Winter," said Mr. Redmond, "I
went down to LtOS Angeles to spend three
or four months, hoping to find a milder
climate. During the month of January
there were Just four days of sunshine in
Los Angeles, and the people in the Ore
gon colony nearly froze to death. It was
not an uncommon sight to see Orego
nlans going about with their overcoats
tightly buttoned under their chins and
shivering from cold. I have lived In the
Willamette Valley more than 40 years,
and I never saw it rain harder or more
frequently during the month of Janu
ary here than was the case in Los Ange-
les. On Broadway and Spring street two I
or tne principal thoroughfares of Los
Angeles I saw running water a foot
deep, and one night the torrents washed
a .lot of lumber down one of the prin
cipal streets and blockaded streetcar
"There Is a whole lot of 'moonshine'
about California's 'perpetual sunshine,'
added Mr. Redmond, and our 'Oregon
mists are as nothing compared to the tor- I
rential downpour and frigidity of a Los
-AJigeies winter. I
"Los Angeles' said Mr. Redmond, "has
250,000 population, and 150,000 real estate
agents." A JjOs Angeles business man

tne sana aunes and barren hills, with a
wave of his hand.

Baby Girl Had Rash Behind Ears
Nothing Would Drive It Away

Specialist's Care Tried Every
thing Without Avail.
EFFECTED PERFECT CURE
"When my daughter was a baby she
bad a breaking out behind the ears.
The doctor saia that she would out
grow it, and it did get somewhat better
until she was about fifteen years old,
and after that we could get nothing
that would drive it away. She was
always applying something in the way
of salves. It troubled her behind the
knees, opposite the elbows, back of the
neck and ears, under the chin, and
then it got on the face. That was
about three years ago. As we had
tried everything that we could hear of
without help she took treatment with
a specialist and seemed to get worse
all the time. We were then advised
to try the Cuticura Remedies, and now
I don't see any breaking out, and we
are well pleased with the results, and
I will cheerfully recommend the Cuti
cura Remedies to all that may need
them. M. Curley, 11-10 Sixteenth St,
