William, Alias ''Doc" Davenport, Ar
retted nt Lebanon.
LEBANON, Jan. 5. Last night Deputy
"United States Marshal George Humph
rey, assisted by Joseph Smith and D. D.
Shaw, arrested William, alias "Doc"
Davenport, at his residence, eight miles
from here, on the charge of counterfeit
ing 51 silver coins. The prisoner has
served a term in the Oregon penitentiary
for the same offense. Several plaster-of-
paris moulds were found on the premises,
and considerable money of his manufac
ture is now in the possession of the of
ficers. He will be taken to Portland
for examination and to await the
action of the United States grand jury.
N. It. Harris, of the secret-service di
vision of the treasury department at San
Francisco, laid the plans that led to the
capture of the defendant, and secured the
evidence which is regarded as sufficient
to convict him.
(Several weeks ago N. R. Harris, of the
"United States secret service, came to
Portland and consulted with United States
Marshal Grady and United States District
'Attorney Murphy concerning a band of
counterfeiters, who were manufacturing
both gold and silver coins at Lebanon
and shipping them all over the Union.
Ten-dollar pieces were made out of solid
sliver and then plated with gold. This
gave the coin a perfect ring and made it
difficult of detection. It is even reported
that some of the banks here in Portland
were caught. There are four men in the
gang, and when Harris had fully worked
up the case, Deputy United States Mar
shal George H. Humphrey was dispatched
to Lebanon. This was on last Thursday.
Marshal Humphrey was armed with alias
warrants for John Doe and Richard Roe,
as the names of the counterfeiters were
not known. Friday Humphrey succeeded
in making the arrests, and yesterday
morning sent a telegram to Assistant
United States Attorney Schnabel. convey
ing the Intelligence of his success, and
requesting Mr. Schnabel to come at once
to Lebanon, as the men taken Into cus
tody had demanded an Immediate exam
ination on the spot. While there is no
United States commissioner at Lebanon,
it would have been possible for the ac
cused to have a preliminary hearing there.
Where thero is no commissioner, a jus
tice of the peace may act as ex-officlo
United States commissioner. The four
men arrested, however, changed their
minds as to an examination at Lebanon,
and a little time after the receipt of the
telegram Mr. Schnabel received word that
the men had agreed to come to Portland
and have their hearing before United
States Commissioner J. A. Sladen, who
issued the warrants. Deputy Marshal
Humphrey will arrive with his prisoners
thi3 morning. The names of "Doc" Dav
enport's confederates have not yet been
.ascertained. United States Marshal Grady
materially assisted Mr. Harris in work
ing up the case.)

ELLEN'SBURG, Wash., Jan. 5. The
most daring robbery since the Roslyn af
fair took place here last night between
7,S and S:W o'clock. The office of Henry

ASHLAND. Or.. Jan. 5. North-bound
passenger train No. 15 arrived here about
330 A M., 11 hours late. When the train
was about nine miles from here, a lady.
Mary J. Jasons, was missed from one of
the sleepers. The lady was sick, and she
was supposed to have -walked from the
car while delirious. An engine left here
with the lady's husband about 3:20 A- SL
to search for her, and her body was found
about 20 miles south, near Coles, CaL,
badly mangled by the train. It was
brought here, and a coroner's jury re
turned a verdict In accordance with the
facts. She was 43 years old, a native of
Holland, and was on her way to Tacoma.
A PLAUSIBLE THEORY.
Reasons for Believing: a. Seattle Man
VANCOUVER, B. C, Jan. 3. The theory
that Heinrich Zechow, the Seattle man.
whose body was found under a wharf in
Westminster New Year's eve, was mur
dered is strengthened by information ob
tained by the police. Jacob Zechow, an
uncle of Heinrich, left Germany in 1834,
coming to the United States. He first set
tled in California, thence removing to
Washington, making his home at Port
Orchard. Being industrious, he acquired
considerable wealth, which consisted
chiefly of lands. He took an Indian wom
an to live with him, and when he died, in
1S77, he left a son by her, who was then
17 years old. Zechow, commonly called
Sigo, left no will, and his estate was set
tled by trustees. The estate at that time
consisted of 70 acres within the present
city limits of Seattle, besides other prop
erty, all of which went to his son. In 1892
Heinrich came from Germany in search of
his uncle. He finally heard that he was
living at Port Orchard, and came up to
see him. On his arrival he found the half
breed son in possession. On making in
quiries, he discovered that the uncle never
married the Indian woman; so he decided to
contest the ownership of the property, on
behalf of himself and relatives in Ger
many. He had a large mass of papers,
which' were found on his body. It seems
he was about to commence an action in
the courts when he met his death. The
chief of police believes he was murdered
to prevent his obtaining the ownership of

Tracks "Washed Out in Many Places
by Swollen Streams.
WOODLAND, CaL, Jan. 5. The storm.
that commenced Thursday, and continued
for 24 hours, was one of the heaviest that
ever visited this section. The rainfall
ranged from four to six inches. The
creeks broke over their banks and did con
siderable damage, mostly to railroad prop
erty. The tracks are washed out in many
places. The train from Oroville was sig
nalled at Merrits station, and ordered
back to Davisville, but had not proceeded
very far, when it was noticed that the
tracks were sliding and the water was
growing deeper and deeper, and finally
the train had to be stopped. The passen
gers started through the rapidly rising
waters to high ground, a quarter of a
mile distant. A farmer, who had heard
their cries, braved the storm and came to
their rescue, and, after much difficulty,
took the passengers to his house and
made them comfortable. The railroad
company sent out boats from Davisville,
and a few passengers went to that town
for the night. It is believed that two
tramps, who were on the train, were

There is Danger of an Overflow In
the City of Stockton,
STOCKTON, CaL, Jan. 5. The rain of
the past two days has again created fear
of a possible flood. There is a break of
considerable extent in the embankment
of Mormon channel, near the Bellota road,
and the water is coming down through
Linden Into the city. Thus far the chan
nels have been able to take care of it,
though the water is 8 to 10 Inches higher
than at the last high water. The streets
on Lindsay point are flooded and a foot
more will flood the lower side of Levee
street. The water is reported falling at
Linden, but is still coming down the chan
nel through the city. Mormon channel
is at the top of its banks, and the water
is expected to go over them tonight. Some
cellars are already flooded, but it will
take three feet or more for the water to
reach the 'streets in the business por

OAKLAND, CaL, Jan. 5. The banks cf
the San Lorenzo creek broke during the
night about a mile north of Hayward3.
Vast quantities of water were turned
Into the orchards. The water laid the
roots of thousands of trees bare. The
overflow carried away numerous fences
and bridges. Near San Lorenzo it carried
away a portion of the railroad track. The
road from San Lorenzo to Mount Eden

travel west of San Lorenzo was stopped
last night, and land was not in sight
for half a mile in some places.
HEALDSBURG, CaL, Jan. 5. The recent
storm was one of the worst this place
has ever experienced. The creeks are

and haystacks were also washed away.
In some Instances houses were surrounded
and the families imprisoned. The electric
light and power-house and the gas works

out in the country than in town, and the
country roads are blockaded. More snow
fell in a shorter period of time than at
any previous time within the memory of
the oldest inhabitant. Ice 13 running
freely in the river, but there seems no
imminent danger of a blockade. The
steamer Regulator was compelled to tie
up 12 miles below here, on account of
her rudder being damaged by the ice. The
steamer reached here yesterday morning,
and expects to make several more trips.
All the trains were blockaded, and rail

Pudding river is reported as being at flood
stage, while the Molalla has but little
more than begun to rise, which would in

PROPOSED YACHT RACE.
Comment of the Leading English
Authority Upon the 'Feasibility.
LONDON, Jan. 5. The Field will pub
lish a long leader on the negotiations for
the cup race. After commenting on For
est and Stream's trenchant and logical
assault upon the deed of gift, the writsr
"We on this side, like Forest and
Stream, concur that theconditlons now
agreed upon of the prospective race are
fair and liberal. Then why on earth do
not the members of the New York club
agree to attach these conditions to the
cup. They already have altered the deed
twice. If they had the right to do that
they can alter it twice again. It 13 true
that they 'obtained permission from the
surviving donor, but he had no right
whatever to deal with the cup or the con
ditions. Neither had the New York club.
They were made trustees, and not own
ers, which appears to have been entirely
overlooked. Lord Dunraven hopes that
the new club will make a definite avowal
whether or not the present interpretation
of the mutual-agreement clause is legally
correct. The general meeting of the Royal
Yacht Squadron will be held at noon
January 7, while the New Yorkers
will be in bed. Therefore, there will be
no chance of communication with the
New York club during the meeting on
the subject of interpretation. Kence it
is possible that the Royal Yacht Squadron
merely will express an opinion and ap
point a committee to confer with the New
York club, as in 1SS9. This, unfortunate
ly, may prevent a race next autumn."
The Field will say also: "Lord Dun
raven received a telegram yesterday, in
which Mr. Smith, chairman of the cup
committee, states that any club holding
the cup in the future can accept a chal
lenge on the terms which the New York
club agreed to accept the present one
under the mutual-agreement clause. This
goes a little beyond what the New York
club has already said. It is not backed
by any legal opinion that the deed can
be waived, as if it did not exist, and it
establishes no rights whatever for the
challenger. Yachtmen want the assur
ance that If they forward a challenge, ac
cording to the conditions now agreed upon
in both countries as fair and liberal, It
will be necessarily accepted straightaway.
Obviously, the New York club cannot
bind other clubs, but if it conjointly with
the Royal Yacht Squadron expresses and
attaches to the deed the opinion that the
challenge should be accepted, there Is little
fear that other clubs will not observe it."
The Field says that should a new Val
kyrie be built for a cup race next fall,
Lord Dunraven would have Sycamore as
his racing master. Sycamore Is famous
for his work with the Carina, Vendetta,
Balbe and Corsair.

refused to deliver him, unless he had as
surance from the governor of Kentucky
and the judge 'of the trial court that
Hampton would be protected from vio
lence and be given a fair trial. The court
said no such assurance had been received.
He found both the indictment and the
requisition defective in form, but under
the broader ground of securing the rights
of prisoners, the court held that he was
justified in refusing to surrender Hamp
ton. The presumption that he would die
without legal process, if sent back, had
not been rebutted by proof of any kind.
The court cited statistics of ten lynch-
ings in Kentucky within a comparatively
short time, and recalled the fact that one
of the victims had been surrendered by
this court. The court felt the obligation
to perform a moral duty in this case,
which could not be enforced by mandamus
or other proceedings. He was willing
to remand the prisoner upon proper in
dictments and requisition, if the govern
or or other authority had provided for
a force to protect him from violence and
insure an impartial trial. This had not
been done, and the court felt bound to
discharge the prisoner. So much Interest
was taken in the case, that other judges
left their benches to listen to the de
livery of the court's decision.
IT WAS IGNORED.
The Charge Made Against Governor
Hughes, of Arlzonn.
PHOENIX, Ariz., Jan. 5. The federal
grand jury investigation of Governor
Hughes, charged by two federal officials
here with unlawfully retaining interpre
ters' or translators' fees, came to an end
'today. The charge was ignored, and, as
well, another brought under the same sec
tion of the United States statutes against
his late private secretary, John Arm
strong, now of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat,
by whom it was alleged the inter
preters fees had been turned over to the
The prosecution originally charged em
bezzlement against the governor under
the various statutes, but finally receded
from this to the charge of violating the
statute named. The attempt to indict
Armstrong was because, without his in
dictment, there could be no indictment of
the governor, against whom he had been
brought here to testify, but whose testi
mony refuted every allegation made
against the governor.

BOSTON, Jan. 5. A warrant has been
issued for the arrest of Harry B. Spald
ing for the alleged embezzlement of $15,000
in cash from the firm of Wheeler, Blodgett
& Co. Spalding, who was formerly the
confidential bookkeeper of this firm, and
had been 20 years in their employ, made
his disappearance from Boston in Septem

that the man was an embezzler, but later
developments convinced the firm that
such was the fact. Spalding always spent
money lavishly. Since the police began to
work on the case, they have learned that
Spalding went to Montreal, but there all
trace of him was lost.

What is needed
is plenty of blood,
and that of the
riebt kind. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery makes
pure, rich blood, and to gain in blood is
nearly always to gain in wholesome flesh up
to the healthy standard.
Every one should have a certain surplus
of flesh to meet the emergencies of sick
ness ; to resist the attack of consumption,
grip, malaria and fevers. Thin blooded
people are always getting sick, and none of
the organs of the body can get along with
out the food they require for work, which is,
pure blood. To gain and to keep strength
and flesh is the secret of health, usefulness
and happiness. With new blood and re
freshed nerves a confident feeling of return
ing health comes also.
Nervous manifestations, such as sleep
lessnesSj nervous debility and nervous
prostration are in nine casesout often "the
cry of the starved nerves for food." If you
feed the nerves on nure rich blood the
nervous symptoms will cease. It is bad
practice to put the nerves to sleep with so
called celery mixtures, coca compounds or
malt extracts : what is needed is a blood
maker. The Discovery" is composed of
vegetable ingredients which have an es

dyspepsia, indigestion, liver comnlaint,

testified to its merits.
