One of the most wonderful short runs
ever made was by "The Twentieth Cen

in May 1903, when it traveled 4 4 miles
at the rate of eighty-eight miles an
hour , six miles at the rate of ninety
miles an hour and seven miles at the
rate of Hti 4 miles an hour. On this run
the same train maintained a speed of
66.12 miles an hour for 241 miles and
70.2 miles an hour for 133 miles. The

considering the distance. The train

The Trial is On.
Portland, June 21. -The trial of Sen
ator John H. Mitchell began yesterday
in the United States Court. It was
lacking in anything sensational, but it
was not devoid of interest. It resulted
in the selection of the jury, after nearly
eight hours of effort, that will decide
upon the guilt or innocence of the defen"
dant. It demonstrated what was not
thought to be possible that out of 25
men drawn from the box, 12 could be
chosen without opinion or prejudice to
try the merits of this, one of the most
important cases that ever came before
an Oregon tribunal.
