In the sum of $40,000. Two bonds, one for
the sum of J15.000. and the other for
JJS.no were provided by six of his friends
and relatives, who qualified for sums
ranging from JSOOO to 10.v00.
In connection with his release It was
aiven out on what is regarded as reliable
authority that several conferences have
been held by his relatives and friends
with the view of making good the entire
.Indebtedness of the ex-banker. It is also
rumored that Scriber and his friends have
agreed that he shall plead guilty when
arraigned. The plea, together with the
fact that arrangements have been made
to prevent loss on the part of depositors
in the wrecked bank will have consider
able weight. It is believed. In mitigating
Scriber' s bail on the first count of
forgery was fixed at $13,000. Bonds in that
sum were provided by W. J. Furnish,
of Pendleton, at one time Republican
candidate for Governor of Oregon, and
Julius Rush, a wealthy brewer of La
Ball on the second count on a similar
charge was fixed at 5.000. Bonds In that
sum were provided by Frank D. Mc
Culley. of Grande, who qualified in
tlw sum of $5000; Phil Metschan. of Port

banket1 of Spokane, a brother-in-law of
Scriber. $10,000, and Charles B. Moo res, of
Portland, ex-register of the land office.
Scribe r"s release from the County Jail,
where he has been held as a Federal
prisoner since his arrest at La Grande,
was. accomplished at 3 o'clock yesterday
afternoon. The order for his release was
delivered to Jailer Hunter by Attorney
I.. H. McMahon. of Salem, a cousin of
the banker. Scriber was not visibly af

warmly as soon as he was brought Into

railway station, where they boarded the
train for Salem. It is said that the
Grande banker will remain there until
Ma hearing In the Federal Court in Jan
uary. At the time of Scriber- arrest It was
threatened by depositors of the wrecked
bank that they would cause his Im
mediate re-arrest In case he or his friends
succeeded in securing his release from
custody. Such threats, however. If they
were really made, are of no avail, for the
Government alone, through District At
torney McCourt. may cause his reincar
ceration. The Government Yesterday fixed
his bonds and Mr. McCourt la satisfied
that the amount IS sufficient to guarantee
the appearance of the banker when his
case is called.
"I am quite satisfied that the amount la
aufflcient to cause his appearance In
court." said Mr. McCourt. -although I do
not mean even to suggest that he has
any other Idea than of appearing. It is
likely thst he will appear in January-"
Mr. McCourt disavowed any knowledge,
of the alleged plans of Striber's relatives
and friends to make good the banker's
shortage. He also declare'd that he had
received no Information as to what plea
would be entered by Scriber.
However, about the Federal building
yesterdav there was a persistent rumor
that conferences had already been held
and others are planned by the banker's
friends and relatives for the purpose of
making good his shortage. The amount,
according to Scriber. will not exceed
JTfl but the Government officials de
clare that the bank Is short $123,000 as
the result of the ex-cashier's operations.
Friends of the banker, who were In
terviewed with rtference to the reported
efforts to mak good his shortage, de
cline to discua the matter, declaring that
they had heard of no such efforts. How
ever, it Is known that the matter has
been discussed by them on several oc
casions snd thst plans are on foot where
by the depositors may be paid In full.

seen and all agree that no more arrests

Exact Day of Schedule Depends on
Arrival of Equipment Or

Positive Information was received in
Portland yesterday afternoon that
trains on the North Bank road 'from
Portland to Spokane will be placed In
operation between Friday and Sunday
morning next. The only question In
time will be in the arrival of the Pull
man equipment. The company has or
dered the cars rushed West as fast as
possible, and as soon as they arrive a
time card will be announced and a
ervlce established. If the cars
arrive Thursday the card will
take effect Friday: If not. Sunday.
The cars will be of the latest pattern

The refusal of James J. Hill, chair
man of the board of directors of the
Great Northern, and Howard Elliott,
president of the Northerln Pacific, to
announce the time for the opening of
the road to traffic when they were in
Portland Friday, was said by men on
railroad row yesterday, to be due to
the delay In the arrival of the equip
ment and the establishment of a time
card. The new road, owned Jointly by
the transcontinental lines, will meet
the Northern Pacific at Pacific, and
from there on a new card to Spokane
must be arranged so as not to conflict
with the through card of the North

Before the meeting of the Board was

The law requires that a complaining

morning. He said he was ready for

be no trial, for he dtdn't bother him

"Just why any woman would want

MAY GRANT EXTENSION
Council May Reach Agreement Re
garding Engines on Fourth Street.
The present attitude of the members
of the City Council seems favorable to
an extension of time for the Southern
Pacific to operate as at present on its
Fourth street line, and it would not be
surprising If the Council should enter
into an agreement with the officers of
the corporation to that effect. At the
meeting of the committee on judiciary
yesterday afternoon City Attorney Kav
anaugh's opinion, holding that the Coun
cil has power to oust the company and
stop it from operating steam locomotives
on Fourth street, was read, but was not
acted upon. The time limit, as fixed
by ordinance, expires Friday, November
13. and It is thought the Council will
not take any action until after that
A statement by a high official of the
Harrlman lines is to the effect that the
company will be able to take its steam
locomotives from Fourth street In 18
months. It is Just 18 months since the
Council passed an ord lance giving the
company that period of time In which
to abandon the use of the Fourth street
track for steam engines and freight.
It now appears that the Council will
wait to see what action the company will
take relative to obeying the terms of
the ordinance, and that some negotiations
will then be entered Into to reach a
mutual understanding in the matter.
