.tured this morning in a battle between
a band of robbers and a large posse
headed by Provincial police and citi
zens, following the robbing of the
lnion Ban kof Canada branch here.
The third wounded man -and a sixth
member of the band escaped with $1100
in cash. A posse is searching for
The bank, which is a substantial
building of losconstruction, standing
by itself apart' from other buildings,
had opened only a few minutes for
business when the robbers ap
peared. Two men armed with rifles
sauntered up the road, two others came
from the woods at the rear of the
bank, and two more came from another
direction. The first two stepped in
side the door of the bank and with
rifles raised called out "hands up."
The other four appeared almost at the
same instant, taking up positions out
side the bank.
Customer I Robbed.
The only customer In the bank was
John Gaslin. manager for a contracting
firm. Uaslin had a sheaf of checks
and postal orders in his hand, and
less than $50 in cash. While his
companion covered the employes with
his rifle, one robber stepped forward
and took iiaslin's cash, also reaching
over the teller's desk to the drawer
and taking all the currency within
The robbers were not more than half
a minute in the bank. As they backed
out. the clerks began to reach for
their pistols and in reply to this move
ment, the robbers fired several shots
through counters and walls. The only
wsn hit was Fenton, a ledger keeper,
who suffered a scalp wound from &
fcplinter knocked out of his desk.
Tfce shooting alarmed the town and
several cowboys who happened to be

lice, who have been on the watch for
just such a robbery, also began shoot

Citizens Aid 1
They were backed
up by citizens
and within a. few moments the fusil
lade was general. Shooting under
cover the posse did such effective
work that two of the robuers fell dead
in their tracks as the raced along tbe
road toward the bush. Two others fell
and were captured. Neither of the
dead has been identified. All the
robbers are believed to be Russians
and the gang may be the same that
two months ago robbed the same bank
and got-away into the hills.
The posse at 1 d'clock was still out In
pursuit of the robbers, but the chances
of killing the other two until the
chase is thoroughly organized are not
good. There was Btill some shooting

C. and Klma, WasliN. It was the custom
ut the gang to appirtir suddenly at
bank during business iidw-s. compel the
tellers to hand over all wb money in
their cages, and then disappear. The
robbers were always unmasked and
were dressed like loggers or railroad
laborers, with slouch hats, boots and
rough coats. After the four robberies
no one who saw the robbers could give
a good description of them, or even be
sure of their number. Some said there
were five,, others six or seven. The team
work of the robbers was wonderful,
ISach one knew just what to do. Here-
toiore a great snow or llrearms was
made, but shooting was avoided. After
each of the four robberies the men took
ostensibly for the woods. but it
is evident they had a means of flight
carefully arranged, for they were never
intercepted. Instead the posses were
soon besieging and even firing at one
another, as wa notably the case after
the Elma robbery last month, when the
robbers escaped with 94-80.

The Supreme Court, in an opinion to
day in the case of Walter Scibor
against the Orego.i-Washlngton Rail
road & Navigation Company, held that.
under certain circumstances, a person
charged with crime who is wounded
by an arresting officer is entitled to
damages. A verdict for $2000 damages

McGinn's court was affirmed.
W. A Mack, a watchman for the
company, in February, 1912, detected
Scibor carrying wheat from its termi

man to his home. There, he found
about 30 sacks of wheat, which he be

Scibor. who was in the basement
where the wheat was stored, was Im

KETCHIKAN. Alaska. Anrll 2
(Staff Correspondence.) Since early
this morning the Stetson has been dis
charging coal. The captain says we
win sail rrom here about 6 o'clock this
evening. We will thus have nearly all
day here, and I. at least, have taken
advantage of the opportunity to talk
to as many people as I could and get
an or tne facts 1 could.
I have interviewed a good many mer
chants, and many of them hail the new
steamship line from Portland with de
light. Whether we get a good share of
the trade depends largely upon the
service. Its regularity principally.
ltn so many Sound boats comlnar
and going, tne merchants say they can
generally count on getting goods In
their stores in six to seven days from
tne date of the dispatch of the order.
But they quite generally say that a lit
tle longer time would not amount to
much If they could be sure as to whe
the goods would arrive.
W hile it Is true that many merchants
talk that way, and others much strong
er, alleging that they have not received
the treatment from the Sound Jobbers
that they think they deserve, it Is like
wise true that thetSound Interests ram
ify the trade here to a large extent by
Invested capital. The only way to get
around that is for the Portland capital
ists to gradually reel their wav along
and also become interested. That will
take time, but by pursuing a liberal
policy it can- be done. And the field
will never again be in as good shape to
take nold as It Is today.
ivetchlkan is In most respects a typi
cal Oregon town. There is very little
Indian, Spanish or Russian about It.
There are. It is true, a couple of totem
poles standing in the town and a large
numDer in a graveyard across the bay;
but the stores, even the buildings them
selves, are typically American.
Twi Built Osj Hilly Ground
The streeta to be sure are not paved.
they are all well planked. They run
around In -various directions to a de
gree. At least one of the business
streets Is less than 40 feet wide, with
nine-foot walks on each side.
In some of the older portions of the
town It is difficult to tell which Is
Smith's back yard and which is Brown's
front yard. Many . of the cheaper
dwellings are the merest shanties, sit
ting In many cases up on stilts along
the side hill, for the town Is on unlevel
ground. Usually If one Is not going
uphill you are going down.
The first thing that attracts the at
tention of the newcomer is a vast con
crete building near the wharf. It Is
something like 60 by 100 feet, five sto
ries, but not a window above the first
story. It is a new cold storage plant.
Just getting ready for business. An
other large plant of the same kind is In
the upper part of town. It handles a
large amount of salmon and halibut,
two Important industries here; in fact,
the most Important at present.
Newspapers Arc Prospering.
My first visit this morning was to
the office of the Daily Miner, an even
ing paper that seems very much alive.
It has a good office and does a big job
business. A Mergenthaler sets the
type and they have good presses. Rich
ard Bushell. Jr., and his wife own and
run this plant and they seem to be
There Is also a morning paper, the
Morning Mall. This is also a good look,
ing paper, but does not have as good
an office as the Miner. I received every
courtesy at the Miner office. But then
the Ketchikan people are all courteous
so far as my mixing goes to show.
Little Brewi Brook" Dreauny Stream.
Usually the first place people go
when they arrive , here for the first
time is to see what Ella Higginson
calls "The Little Brown Brook." She
raves over it in prose and others have
ranted over it in verse. The real name
of it is Ketchikan Creek. You can't
miss it if you come here, for there are
signs all over town, sort of finger
boards, pointing to The TCreek. .
Well, I did not go crazy over It- I
followed It up for a mile or so, up to
the power plant. It is a lovely stream.
Truly and really a stream to dream
about. But to rant and rave over it
you must see It later in the season
when It Is a mass of salmon and trout.
Thousands of fishermen catch millions
of trout out of it every year, still there
are trout galore.
Its waters are as clear as distilled
water can be then some. It flows
over varl-colored stones and rocks: it
dashes, plunges and "sallies" down
waterfalls and through gorges and
over "pebbly reaches." I only hope
some day to see it again, and In the
Now I must go back- to the newspa
pers, back to the Morning Mail, for I

What a wealth of material for so small
a space! Why, Mike Martin, -the old
est inhabitant of Ketchikan, gave me
the material for a page in The Oie
gonian a paper he has taken- -every
day he could get it since he came here
in 1885. Ketchikan was then not much
more than a name and a location. He
came here, after a residence of 11 years
