Big Bend Creditors Favored
by Controller of Currency.
If Institution at Davenport, Wash., Is
Reopened the Capital Must Be
Restored and .All Debts
Paid in Full.
Jngrton, Novl.26. It was learned on the
highest authority that the Bis Bend
National Bank.' o Davenport. Wash
closed by the Controller of the Cur
rency yesterday, has been specially ex
amined no less than four times during
the past year, and that time was given
the bank officials to rearrange loans
and otherwise put the bank's affairs
In good shape, more time even than
the president and others asked for. It
Is learned that during the Summer the
president disposed of a Quantity of
stock of mines in which he and others
were interested, the proceeds beinc
placed in the bank's assets, so that
from the creditors' standpoint the fail
ure was better at this time than it
would have been . had the bank been
closed several months ago.
If the bank is .to be reopened the
capital must be restored and liabilities
met. It is understood hero that a
great deal in relation to the bank's af
fairs depends upon the worth of the
.mines, which ar said to be valuable.
Light Tax Is Not Burdensome in Ore
gon Convention of Officers.
SALEM, Or., Nov. 26. (Special.) Two
deDartures in public-school work are prov
ing very successful wherever tried and
promise to become permanent features of
the public-school system. They are tno
common-school library, supported by spe
cial taxation, and the convention of school
officers. Four counties have levied the
library tax, amounting to 10 cents per
capita upon the school population, and it
is found that by this means the country
schools are provided with booka as good
as those accessible to the pupils of town
"The tax, being one-tenth of 1 mill, Is
not felt," says Superintendent Alderman,
of Yamhill County, "and It puts the best
books where they do the most good. The
library law has now been In operation
two years and has given complete satis
faction. While the amount that some of
the small districts get Is small, yet it is
in proportion to the number of pupils. I
consider the law a boon to the country
boy and girl and I think It ought to be
made mandatory on the County Courts."
Conventions of school officers have been
held this year at Baker City, Dallas and
McMInnville. at each of which there was
a very full attendance of school directors
and clerks. Addresses were made by
Superintendent Ackerman, by the County
Superintendent and outside educational
workers, and those present held dlscus
Eions of topics of general interest to
school officers.
Consolidation of schools and school dis
tricts was one of the principal topics dis
cussed at these conventions and the mem
bers of school boards learned the plan and
purpose of this latest move for the im
provement of the rural schools.
Legal Notice of Election Held Not to
Have Been Given.
MMINNVTLLB, Or., Nov. 26. (Special.)
Liquor will be sold in Yamhill County,
despite the fact that a majority of the
votes of the late election declared for pro
hibition. This was the decision arrived
at today by the County Cburt. Judge
James McCain appeared for the liquor In
terests, while the array of talent for the
Prohibitionists included George G. Bing
ham, of Salem; B. L. Conner, of McMinn
ville; C. L. Butt and O. M. Pickett, of
Newberg, and W. Luis Thompson, of
The case was won by the liquor people
on the ground that the order declaring
the election was not made at a regular
cession of the County Court. A special
session was called, at which only the
Judge and one Commissioner were pres
ent. This special session was declared to
have been illegal in that requisite notice
of a special session ten days had not
been given.
There was also a disagreement between
the petitioners and the County Clerk as
to the time the petition should be tiled.
Lieutenant Will Probably Lose His
Job Because He Is Married.
ASTORIA, Or., Nov. 26. (Special.) A
trial by court-martial awaits Lieutenant
Wilson, of the Ninety-third Company,
Coast Artillery, stationed at Fort Stevens,
and pending the hearing he has been re
lieved from duty. While the utmost se
crecy is maintained regarding the case,
it is learned that Wilson was appointed
from the ranks and at the time made an
affidavit that he was a single man. Since
then the military authorities have re
ceived information that he has a wife
and several children.
Wilson has been at Fort Stevens for
about 18 months and has been considered
an excellent officer.
Brlggs Strike It Rich Again.
GRANT'S PASS, dr., Nov. 26. David
Brlggs and boys, who were made rich in
a day by the fabulous surface wealth of
the Wounded Buck claim, on Upper Suck
er Creek, have located a claim on Upper
Chetco, away up in the mountains near
the Curry County line, and will work the
rich ledge they have found there. They
have had samples from this claim recently
assayed here, and, while they do not give
the returns that the Wounded Buck
quartz has given, the proposition appears
very promising, and the lucky family will
move their scene of operations from the
Upper Sucker to the Chetco. The Wound
ed Buck is under bond to a company for
a consideration of $109,000.

which are to cost ?30,000,
N eminent physician of this
city recently said: "Very
thin people live from hand,
to mouth, and have little
reserve for emergencies."
Of course we know of per
sons whose nature it is to
be thin "born that way," some say,
but there is a healthy standard by which
a person who knows himself can gauge
his good health or poor health. If for
any reason he or she is below bis or her
normal weight, then it is wise to look
out for trouble. In case the germs of
grippe, typhoid, or consumption gain an
entrance to the body they find a fertile
field and develop immediately. We can
only compare this sudden taking on of
disease germs by the thin body, to the
fertile field which lays fallow until an
unfortunate wind carries the seeds of
some wild and worthless plant there and
they quickly root and flourish. Almost
any grave change in health is at once
betrayed by the loss of flesh, which
shows most often in the face. This con
dition almost always co-exists with im
poverished blood. A gaia of flesh up
to a certain point means a rise in other
essentials of health ; the red corpuscles
of the blood are increased, and the color
improved, when persons find them
selves losing weight they should heed
the warning, and use the proper means
in time beiore disease fastens on them.
A tonic alterative is needed to digest and
assimilate tne iooa.
"About four months ago I contracted
severe cold, which terminated in a
hacking and most annoying cough,"
writes Christian Woehlck, President Cal
ifornia B ruder Sam Fund,' 350 Fifth St.,
San Francisco, California, whose like
ness is given above. nI also suffered
severely from catarrh, which affected my
throat; head was stopped up, nose was
running, ana sore irom continual mow
ing, and the disease seemed to affect my
stomach, causing indigestion and a nau
seating sick feeling. Tried several pre
scriptions, which did not help me, and I
began to be very anxious. A friend who
called on me, said she had a bottle ot
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
in her home, and that she never would
be without it, as it was the finest remedy
she had ever tried. I naturally became
curious and wanted to try this highly
praised article. I soon found that it
fully deserved the good name she had
crtven it. 1 lelt reuet within two days.
the sick ieeling had. disappeared irom
my stomach by that time. Gradually
the congested feeling in my head was
relieved, and within ten days I was well
once more. I am thankful and happy
that my attention was called to Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.''
Another experience, showing the life-
saving qualities of this wonderful "Dis
covery," is given, as follows :
"Some time has elapsed since I have
written you in regard to the treatment
I have been taking under your instruc
tions," says Mr. a. F. Cingmars, of 533
Pena Avenue, JfiaseapoliK, "Minnesota.
" Wflea nrsc 1 cotameacea isjang your
remedies I had been for foar months
under treatment of a well-known, spe
cialist in this city for catarrh and stom
ach trouble, rapidly getting worse. Got
so bad that 1 coma not eat any tmng mat
did not distress me terribly and I was
obliged to stop taking the doctor's treat
ment entirely. I was greatly reduced in
flesh. As a last resort I wrote to you and
stated my case, and after receiving your
instructions I followed them closely.
After taking five bottles of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery and one vial
of his 'Pleasant Pellets' I commenced
to improve, and decided to continne the
medicines and observe your instructions
regarding hygienic treatment. It is
now nearly six months since I com-
menced your treatment and I can say
that I am well and never felt better in
my life. Am very grateful to you for
what your medicine has done for me.J'
A man who lives close to nature in
God's free air, on the sea or in the
woods, is usually a healthier man than
the one confined in factory or workshop.
Nature's remedies are always best for
eradicating disease, and by this we mean
a medicine made of plants and herbs.
Get as near to Nature's way as yon
can. There's a reason. Vegetable foods
are the best for the body in health.
The human economy digests and assim
ilates them best. In disease, remedies
made entirely of botanical plants and
roots are best and safest for the system.
They are assimilated in the stomach and
taken up by the blood and are, therefore,
the most potent means which can be em
ployed for the regaining of lost health.
Dr. R. V. Pierce, consulting physician
to the Invalids Hotel and Surgical In
stitute, at Buffalo, N. Y., in many years
of extensive practice, found that he
could pin his faith to an alterative ex

OLTMPIA. "Wash., Nov. 26. (SpecIaL)
Estimates prepared for the biennial report
of the State Board of Control recommend
appropriations by the coming Legislature
for the needs ot the institutions in tne
cnarge of this hoard, an aggregate of
This sum Is an Increase over the total
appropriations made by the last Legisla
ture for the same institutions of 52SS.250..
The greater port of this increase, if al
lowed by the legislature, will go to the
construction of additions to the buildings
at all the institutions except the He form
The recommendations of the board pro
vide for the construction of two detached
wings to the "Western "Washington Hos
pital for the Insane at Stellacoom. Each
of these wings will cost approximately
$55,000 and accommodate 120 patients. It
is planned to build them on the cottage
system. The new buildings will be com
plete in themselves, thus avoiding total
loss in the event of fire in the hospital,
and also enabling the management to iso
late patients afflicted with tuberculosis
or other diseases likely to cause infection
of other patients. The report of the su
perintendent of the institution to the
Board ot Control states that the hospital
Is already overcrowded by a sufficient
number of patients to fill one ot the pro
posed buildings.
The board recommends the same plan at
the Eastern Washington Hospital lor the
Insane with the exception that only one
new building is required at an estimated
cost of 555,000.
The sum of $20,000 is asked for a new
building at the State Penitentiary. It is
planned to convert the officers' dining-
room, which is now within the walls, into
more cells, and to construct a dining
room for the officers outside the walls.
The object is not only to obtain more
cellroom but also to obviate the necessity
for keeping so many officers inside the
walls at one time.
The board recommends that provision be
made at the School for Infective Touth
for removing the feeble-minded patients
to a building to be erected at one of the
insane asylums. The institution is not
only overcrowded, but It is not consid
ered a wise provision to compel deaf and
dumb children and blind patients who de
sire state aid to be placed in company with
feeble-minded children. The sum of $30.
000 is asked for the proposed hospital for
the feeble-minded.
A hospital building is needed at the Sol
diers Home, at Orting, which, with the
cost of increasing the light and heating
plant, repairs and improvements, furnl
ture and completion of the dormitory, run
the estimated needs up to $22,a00.

COLFAX. Waslu Nov. 26. (Special.)
What Is thought to be the first conviction
under the felony law, passed In 1903, was
secured in the Superior Court of "Whit
man County today, when William Marden
was found guilty of conducting a gam'
bling game. The jury took but one ballot
and stood unanimous for conviction as
Marden was running a draw poker
game ana taxing a percentage rrom each
pot, when his game was raided by Sheriff
Canutt. Two witnesses testified to hav
ing played at the game and seeing Mar
den take a percentage from each pot.
The minimum penalty is one year and the
maximum three years in the Penitentiary.
Marden was a farm laborer, but was In
duced to open the game here and was
arrested soon after opening. Those who
are said to have induced him to open the
game fled from the state soon after Mar-
den's arrest.
San Francisco Capitalist Slain After
Business Dispute.
SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 26. Joseph Mc
Gowan, aged 2S years, was shot and In
stantly killed today by Joseph Smith, a
retired capitalist, who Is about 60 years
old. The murder was the result of a
quarrel over business matters. The crime
was committed with a shotgun, which
blew ore a portion of McGowan's head,
When taken Into custody Smith did' not
deny having dono the shooting, and went
Into the prison, laughingly saying: "There
is another man gone."
After killing McGowan, Smith dis
charged the other barrel of his gun at
James Beatty, the dead man's friends
and employe. The second charge, how
ever, went wild, and tore through, the side
of the shed in which the men were stand
ing. Incidentally, William Buttle had a
narrow escape. He was standing near
McGowan when the first charge was
fired, and one of the shots passed through
his coat. Beatty lived with Smith. After
some trouble with the old man this morn
ing he telephoned to McGowan and asked
him to come to the yard at once.
When McGowan reached tho place he
found the front gate locked. He asked
Smith to open, but the latter refused.
Thereupon the young man struck. Smith
through the slats of the gate. Smith
was knocked down, but immediately arose
and walked away without a word. He
went' Into his room, and McGowan, with
Beatty and Buttle, went to a shed in the
rear of the house, where the men were
standing when the old man approached
with his shotgun and opened fire, with
the fatal result.

unusually light, considering the frequency

Effort May Be Made to Abolish Office
of Lieutenant-Governor.
OLTMPIA, Wash.. Nov. 26. (Special.)
There is some revival of the talk of a
proposed bill to abolish at the next ses
sion of the Legislature the office of Lieutenant-Governor.
The measure has had
advocates at nearly everv session, hut nn
definite attempt appears ever to have
oeen made to accomplish that end.
This year, however, those who favor
such a bill are able to point to the three
years about to close during all of which
time the state has been without a Lieutenant-Governor.
In that period Gover
nor McBrlde left the state for several
weeks and the duties of the office that
were required to be fulfilled during his
absence were conducted without trouble
by his private secretary and by the Sec-
retary of State, S. H. Nichols, who be
came Acting Governor during the ab
sence of Governor McBrlde.
In the last session of the Legislature
the members of the Senate had the ex
perience of electing their own presiding
officer, and it is said they rather liked it.
The duties of the Lieutenant-Governor
in this state consist only in presiding
over the Senate during the sessions of the
Legislature. He becomes Governor in the
event ot the death, or resignation, of the
Governor, and I3 Acting Governor during
tho absence or disability of the Governor.
The state pays the Lieutenant-Governor a
salary of 51000 per annum.
Henry McBrlde was elected Lieutenant
Governor four years ago, and upon the
death of Governor Bogers, a year later,
he became Governor. To test the status
of Governor McBrlde, an action was taken
to the Supreme Court and that body de
clared, in effect, that the vacancy existed
in the office of Lieutenant-Governor, upon
the death of the Governor and the qualify
ing of the Lieutenant-Governor for the
office of Governor.
The constitution provides that the Leg
islature may In its discretion abolish the
offices ot Lieutenant-Governor, Auditor
and Commissioner of Public Lands. It
seems to be conceded by legal authorities
that the Leglslatunre cannot turn out of
office an elective officer during his term
of office in ordinary cases, but some hold
that the definite provision of the constitu
tion concerning the office of Lieutenant
Governor give the Legislature power to,
abolish the office at any time.
It is suspected that some of the enemies
of Lleutenant-Governor-elect Charles E.
Coon may be the leading ones responsible
for any bill that may come up in the
next session looking to the abolishment of
the office of Lieutenant-Governor, but so
far the reasons advanced for the pro
posed bill consist of arguments on the
lack of necessity for the office.
It is recognized that Mr. Coon's disfavor
for a measure of the kind would mitigate
against the passage of the bill, as the Lieutenant-Governor
has the naming of the
committees in the Senate. The Lieutenant-Governor,
if he opposed the bill, could
readily refer it to some committee where
it would be forever buried.

of the severe gale. She encountered very
heavy weather during the recent storms,
but was not injured, and every one on

For the Human Body in Health and
The mention of sulphur will recall tc
many of us the early days when, our
mothers and grandmothers gave us our
dally dose of sulphur and molasses every
Spring and FalL
It was the universal Spring and Fall
"blood purifier," tonic and cure-all, and
mind you, this old-fashioned remedy was
not without merit.
The idea was good, but the remedy was
crude and unpalatable, and a large quan
tity had to be taken to get any effect
Nowadays, we get all the beneficial ef
fects of sulphur in a palatable, concen
trated form, so that a single grain is far
more effective than a tablespoonful of
the crude sulphur.
In recent years, research and experiment
have proven that the best sulphur for
.medicinal use is that obtained from Cal
cium (Calcium Sulphide) and sold in drug
stores under the name of Stuart's Cal
cium Wafers. They are small chocolate
coated pellets and contain the active me
dicinal principle of sulphur in a highly
concentrated, effective form.
Few people are aware of the value of
this form of sulphur in restoring and
maintaining bodily vigor and health;
sulphur acts directly on the liver and ex
cretory organs, and purifies and enriches
the blood by the prompt elimination of
waste material.
Our grandmothers knew this when they
dosed us with sulphur and molasses every
Spring and Fall, but the crudity and im
purity of ordinary flowers of sulphur were
often worse than the disease, and cannot
compare with the modern concentrated
preparations of sulphur, of which Stuart's
Calcium Wafers Is undoubtedly the best
and most widely used.
They are the natural antidote for liver
and kidney troubles and cure constipa
tion and purify the blood In a way that
often surprises patient and physician
Dr. R- M. Wilklns, while experimenting
with sulphur remedies, soon .found that
the sulphur from Calcium was superior
to any other form. He says: "For liver,
kidney and blood troubles, especially when
resulting from constipation or malaria.
I have been surprised at the results ob
tained from Stuart's Calcium Wafers. In
patients suffering from boils and pimples,
and even deep-seated carbuncles, I have
repeatedly seen them dry up and disap
pear in four or five days, leaving the
skin clear and smooth. Although Stuart's
Calclum Wafers is a proprietary article,
and sold by druggists, and for that reason
tabooed by many physicians, yet I know
of nothing so safe and reliable for con
stipation, liver and kidney troubles, and
especially in all forms of skin disease, as
this remedy."
At any rate, people who are tired of
pills, cathartics and so-called blood "puri
fiers." will find In. Stuart's Calcium Waf
ers, a far safer, more paIa.ta.M4 aad effect
