Jt Is not fitting that our Ulemas should

In order that victory and glory,

This is shown by the perfervid out

Lieutenant-Governor Wallace, wnlcn

because of his course in commuting the

Broadway Puzzled by Reports That
Stage Manager Refuses to Let
Headliner in Theater.
NEW YORK, Nov. 8. (Special.)
Broadway was puzzled today by dis
patches from Pittsburg that Mrs. Lily
Langtry. who Is under contract at
$3000 a week to appear in a suffragette
playlet written by herself, is not al
lowed to play In that city.
Twice a day since last Tuesday she
has reported at the Pittsburg Grand
Onora House, where she was announced
as "headliner" in "Helping the Cause,"
only to be told by the stage manager
that her services were not required.
She was billed for a week, but after
the Monday night performance it was
announced that she was forced to can
cel the engagement because of ill
health and was returning to New York.
She did not come to New York, though,
and apparently she was not ill. She
kept her expensive suite at the Fort
Pitt Hotel and reported promptly every
afternoon and evening to be Just as
promptly turned down.
It is denied that adverse criticisms
in th TiAwnnnners Tuesday had any
thing to do with the cutting short of
tho international stars engagement..
She will not discuss her affairs.
Martin Beck, president of tho Or
pheum circuit, said he knew nothing of
the nature of her troubles in Pitts
burg, though she is under contract
with him. He Is to . see ,her repre
sentative tomorrow. He thinks there
may have been a misunderstanding
with the management.

Gregarious Superintendent of Hood
River Summer Home Grows Lone

HOOD RIVER. Or., Nov. 8. (Spe
cial.) Local citizens visiting at Mitch
ell's Point, six miles west of here, dis
covered several days ago that "Little
Boy Ranch," the Summer home of C. W.
Parker, who with Mrs. Parker is now
in Canada, had recently been . made a
retreat by tramps. The place was left
in the charge of William Martin, the
son of a homesteader who lives near
The young man cared for the chick
ens, the horses and the gardens. De
ciding to take a vacation in a neigh
boring city, he substituted his father,
George Martin, in his place. The elder
Martin, being of a gregarious tempera
ment, decided that he needed company,
and invited in all the tramps that came
that way.
Mitchell's is the location of an old
lumber camp, which, however, has since
been abandoned. On account of its lo
cation on the tracks of the O.-W. R. &
N. Co., one of the thoroughfares of
tramps moving up and down the Co
lumbia, it is a popular place among
this gentry, the old, abandoned build
ings forming convenient and comfort
able lodging places In rainy weather.
Martin immediately Issued a general
Invitation to all to Join him at the Par
ker home. "The place Is yours," he
would cry, with a flourish, on the ar
rival of each new guest. After a week
the news of the novel "haven of rest"
was bruited from one end of the rail
road line to the other, and Mr. Martin
Is said to have had more guests than
he could accommodate. Bedrooms and
living-rooms are said to have been
overflowing with Weary Willies.
The rumor leaked in that Mr. Par
ker's friends in Hood River had infor
mation of the carousals, and the ho
bos, after a council, decided to "beat
a retreat." The pantry, too, had been
cleaned bare wine cellar and smoke
house were empty. Mr. Marfin deemed
it best not to hold the place alone, and,
locking the two dogs In the residence,
he departed with his guests.
Friends discovered the predicament
several days later. The dogs were half
starved and had chewed up some valua
ble tapestry.

One highwayman lying dead beside the

holdup at 8:10 tonight of the Shasta
Limited to Portland on the Southern
Pacific from San Francisco.
The holdup took place at Delta. 3S
miles north of Redding and 298 miles
from San Francisco. This is Just four

time of night.
Torpedo Stop Train.
The Shasta Limited had Just taken
water at Delta and had started north.
The train had moved scarcely 100 yards
when the locomotive ran over a tor
pedo. The engineer, Frank Wentz, at
once stopped the train and a masked
man Jumped on the footboard of the
locomotive and held a revolver at the
head of the engineer, ordering him to
take his hands off the levers. He stood
guard over the engine while two other
robbers made their way to the mall car.
v One on each side of the car, the two
began shooting. The people of Delta
ran out of their houses and stores. A

guarding the engineer and fireman, ha
went up to the robber and deliberately
shot him through the throat. The rob
ber fell off the footboard and Is sup

His two companions alighted ironi
the mail car on the river side of the
train and escaped. One stayed for a
whllo at the mail car, threatening the
mail clerks, and the other ran forward
calling "Frank." He nesiiaiea mo
ment when he saw his dead partnei ne
side the engine, and ejaculated: "Who
did this?" He then dashed back to the
mall car, Joined his remaining compan
ion, and the two fled.
Robbera Leave No Trace.
No trace of them could be found
when the train crew and passengers
made a search, and 30 minutes after
the torpedo signal the train was under
way again to Portland.
Sheriff Montgomery, of Shasta Coun
ty, who was at Whisky Town at the
time, was reached by telephone and ho
quickly assembled a posse. A special
train has been assembled for the use
of the posse and the pursuit will be
well under way before morning. The
