Death of Engineee Who Built Steel
Bridge. The many friends in Oregon and
Washington of Mr. George Lederle will
be grieved to learn of his death at New
Orleans of heart failure after an illness
of but two or three days. As engineer
in charge of the construction of the Steel
bridge, as well as the Snake River bridge
at Biparia and the partly constructed
Union Pacific bridge across the Columbia
at "Vancouver, Mr. Lederle had a large
circle of friends and acquaintances In
Portland during the early '90s, and his
since become one of the best-known engi
neers in the United States. For some
years he has been a partner in the firm
of Christie & Low,' of Chicago, and had
charge of a number of the largest harbor
Improvement contracts in the country. At
the time of his death be was managing
lor the firm the Improvement of the
Southwest Pass at the mouth of the Mis
sissippi, this contract alone amounting to
52,500,000. Mr. Lederle was still in the
prime of ilfe and his death is a distinct
loss to the country at large, as well as
to his many friends here and elsewhere.
He left no family, but his mother is still
living, and his remains were shipped to
the family home in Detroit. Michigan.
Farmers Clear Oct Coyotes. At Mar
mot and Almes, about 30 miles east of
Portland, the farmers have just made a
successful experiment In getting rid of
the troublesome coyotes, which had been
killing their lambs and calves and pre
venting their raising sheep. At Marmot
young calves were frequently killed,
while at Almes lambs disappeared almost
every night A quantity of poison was
procured from Portland and put out in
different sections of the district where the
coyotes had been raiding the sheep. Just
how many coyotes were killed Is not
known, but the nifmber was not small.
Since then no lambs have been killed and
the farmers are in hopes that they will
meet with no more losses.
Put in Counter Claim. A peculiar law
suit will soon be tried In the East Side
Court. A. Anderson brought an actioa
to recover $39.35 from JCels Nelson, a bal
ance alleged to be due for building a
house for the latter on Mississippi ave
nue. The amount he was to be paid was
J290. but Nelson paid him 5244, alleging
that poor work was done. Nelson in his
answer set up a counter claim for $80.35
for damages. He alleges in his answer
that the house leaked, causing damages
to the amount of 525. Also that no win
dows were put In the basement, and that
one room was too small even to sleep In..
Hence he wants damages.
Tolls on Mount Road. Clackamas
County Court has fixed the following tolls

WORKMEN VICTIMS OF GRAFT
Bunco Man Borrows Money on Pre
tense of Giving Jobs.
A new graft is being worked by a man
giving the name of Charles Barrett He
represents himself as the agent' of the
Inside Inn, at the Lewis and Clark Fair
grounds, and pretends to employ work
men. On the strength of this he borrows
sums of money from those he tells he will
The police were notified of the opera
tions of the man yc.stc.rday, and the de
tectives were assigned to the case. Frank
Lehnert rooming at a South Portland
hotel, told the officers that he was swin
dled out of 527.50 by the alleged manager.
THE COST OF PIANOS.
It is not so much the cost of produc
tion, but the cost of selling which
makes pianos expensive. There is the
canvasser to hunt you up, an agent
to bring you to the store, a teacher, a
neighbor or a friend to Influence you
for a commission, one party to furnish
the capital, another to manage the
business. This is all done away with
by Meyer's new method of piano sell
ing. I furnish the finest stock of pianos
bought for cash with my own money,
you select one, be your own agent, your
own confidential advisor, and see how
mUch you can save by buying at

having left Washington the first of last
The plea in abatement in the Mitchell
case will be the main contention at the
Monday morning session of the court, for
the argument on this has been postponed
until that time. This action was taken
for two reasons, one to allow the defend
ants more time to. prepare, as they re
quested, the other to have as many of the
pleas as possible In court at the time of
the argument in order that all being iden
tical in application would come under
one argument, and thus save the time
and patience of the court
Congressman "Williamson was arraigned
on his two Indictments yesterday morn
ning, and offered demurrers to both in
struments, alleging that they did not fur
nish evidence of crime sufficient to In
dict, and that they were not definite and
certain, wherefore the defendant should
be allowed to go upon the quashing of
the documents. The time for argument
on those demurrers has not been set by
D. It. Van Gesncr and Marion R. Biggs,
the co-defendants with Mr. "Williamson,
filed pleas In abatement as had been
previously done by Senator Mitchell and
the others of the defenc'ants who have
been arraigned thus far.
