PRINCE CAME f ROM NATIVE HAUNTS
All tho way from far-off India,
following tho dictates of an Idle
dream cast over him by tho wise men
of his native country, an Indian
prince, Zangal Hiemal Singh of Mar
garypur, India, has been in Spokane,
found his nihility, ono Blancho Wont
worth, and mysteriously disappeared.
At least this Is the story of persons
living at Mrs. J. U. Brawley's board
ing house at S3 2 9 Monroe street.
Whether tho prlnco was a fako Is
According to tho story told to ono
of tho boarders, in whom the princo
founded, ho canio from Thibet, his
father being one of tho 1 1 Llamas
or tho30 of mystic power who rule
tho district. Before leaving his na
tive hind some time ago, tho wise
men gathered themselves together,
throwing themselves into a trunoc,
According to tholr belief, every per
son in the world has an alllnlty.
Princo Uremal's alllnlty was shown
to them in tho person of Blanche
Wontwoith of Spokane. To them
sho was shown as plainly as though
sho wero ilesh and blood standing
beforo their very oyes. The princo
was to leavo immediately for Spo
kane, where ho wild to Had tho ono
person in nil tho world who was to
becomo his wife. Following tho wiso
men's Instructions tho pilnco camo
to Spokuno to scok his wife among
tho city's population. Ho was to

While riding on u car through tho

the father's consont was being asked,
Prince Dremal referred the father to
tho British consul and other nota
bles, as to his real standings to which
It Is said tho father replied: "To
h with tho British consul, I can
tell a man when I seo him."
After that Princo Brernai went to

stories told by his highness. Ho
asserts ho Is a trance medium and
self-hypnotist. Ho gavo soveral dem
onstrations of his powers whilo at
tho boarding house. Ono tranco

It was worth what it cost them 75
conts each. Tho prince asserts ho
took tho money in tho name of
charity. Ho thon called up a hos
pital and gavo instructions as to re
ceiving n patient whom ho intended
to sond thoro for treatment. Ho also
Inquired into tho method of pro
cedure In securing a pardon for a
convict, and said ho intended to get
a Spokane boy released from the
state penitentiary. Ho is said to
havo engaged a local theater for last
night and tonight, intending to give
entertainments for charity's sake. He
also expected a remittance af 2000
pounds sterling from the Bank of
England. This remittance was ex
pected Monday, tho day ho Is said
to have disappeared. He also told

ISoynl Hobcs Discarded.
Regarding his royal robes, i he Is
said to have assorted they wero worn
until ho reached San Francisco.
By most of those who havo come
In contact with him, he Is thought to
be an Impostor, but what object he
has Is not known. Ho represented
that the young woman whom ho In
tended to wed was about 19 years
old and a daughter of ono of tho
prominent families of tho city. He
was seen with plonty of money, be

GRAZ5NG IN fOREST RESERVES'
MYRTLE BANK SCHOOL
CLOSES WITH PICNIC

happy plcnickors who consisted of
teacher, pupils and parents, who all

ideal one and was enjoyed by all.
Washington, Aug. 1G. Tho forest
service has issued the following
statement relative to grazing in the
forest reserves during tho fiscal year
The report of grazing In tho na
tional forests for tho fiscal year 1906
1907 has been completed. Tho total
area of all tho forests 13 over 15 G,
000,000 acres but stock Is not pas
tured In all of them. Sheep, goats,
horses and cattlo are tho kinds of
livestock entering Into tho statistics.
In ono region cattlo and horses pre
dominate, in another sheep and goats
Stockmen who wish to make use
of tho range apply for permits. They
state thq kind of Stock thoy have,
tho qpantlty and location of the
range they want, and tho officers in
charge make allotments, apportion
ing tho available pasturo among tho
applicants on as equitable a basis as
During the year just closed tho
report shows thnt 23.GG2 applicants
for pasturo wero approved, and of
these applicants 21,788 paid tho fees
and wero granted permits. That wns
92 per cent. Last year there wero
18,040 applications and 16,593 per
mits, 92 per cent. Tho fact that tho
percentage of permits was tho same
in both years tends to show that the
method of transacting the business
is systematic, and that great fluctua
tions need not bo expected.
Th)s year the total number of
sheep and goats on the ranges by
permits was G,G57,0S3 and of horses
and cattle 1,200,158.
Last year tho totals wero: sheep
and goats 4,2G3,100 and horses and
Tho iucreaso In the number of
stock on tho ranges for this year Is
due almost wholly to tho increased
area of the range, and does not mean
that the pastures aro crowded moro
this year than last. The total area
of tho forests is several millions of
acres moro this year than last, and
a greater number of stock can bo
accommodated without an increaso
Many stockmen living on tho bor
ders of forests have ranges of their
own, but to reach it with stock It Is
frequently necessary, or convenient,
to drive across portions of tho for
ests. To do this they are required
to obtain a permit, but no charge 13
mado for It. This year 833 such per
mits were granted, and 3G.S07 horses
and cattle and 2,051,830 sheep and
goats crossed. Last year 259, per
mits of that kind were Issued and
12.G2G horses and cattlo and 092,
540 sheep crossed.
Sometimes stockmen who live
near forests, or have stock near
them, allow their stock to drift
across tho lino. If this Is done care
lessly, negligently or wilfully, it is
considered trespass, and the offender
Is subject to a fine, and may also be
liable to pay damages. The number
of trespass cases ths year was 183
and 1G8 of these settled without go
ing to court, that is, they paid tho
amount agreed upon as Just. Tho
remaining 15 had not yet settled at
the close of the fiscal year, but It Is
believed that most of them will do
as the others have done. There Is
little disposition to go to law or
make trouble over such matters. Tho
total damages colloefd for trespass
for the year was $557G.
Another kind of permit is issued
in certain cases. Sometimes a man
owns land Inside a forest, or partly
surrounded by it, and rather than
fonco it to koop his stock In, he signs
nn agreement that if his stock is al
lowed to graze In tho forest, other
stock In the forest may graze on his
land. Arrangements of that kind
are frequent, and aro often very con
venient' and satisfactory. Ho sim
ply swaps his range for nn equal
amount of grazing outside his lines,
and it Is all used in common. This
year G15 such permits were Issued,
for 15,G24 horses and cattlo and
182. G22 Bheen nml p-nnta i.nof ,...
there were 244 similar permits, and
the stock affected consisted of 18,
823 horses and cattle aud 118,400
Bheep and goats.
The total receipts from grazing
permits for tho fiscal year just closed
were $S57,85G.S3. For tho preced
ing year the amount was $514,
G92.87. Tho business relations between
stockmen and forest officers through
out tho entire grazing regions baYe
been pleasant and satisfactory. No
serious trouble or misunderstanding
occurred anywhere during tno year.
BIG POWER PL AWT
Eugene, Aug. 15. Engineers at
the head of tho McKenzlo river are
making surveys, for some unknown
corporation, for a big electric plant.
It is said that they will hnvo a 900
foot fall, with water enough to gen
erate 50,000 horse power. Tho wa
ter will bo taken from what Is known
as Clear lake, and will ho tunneled
through a mountain down whoso
outer side, tho tunnel will lead into
a great electric station.
For what purpose the power will
bo used is not, of course, known, but
it will probably supply an electric
line, and be sold for general distri
bution. Tho formation of the land through
which the tunnel will bo dug, is lava,
and the canal which would of neces
sity bo of considerable length will
havo to bo all cemented in order to
