Largest Institutions Making
Efforts to Stop Flow of
Gold to America.
DISCOUNTS ARE ADVANCED
Hunkers Meet to Chuck Export of
Gold Forty Million Already
New York. Nov. 7. Tko contest
of European money markets to re
tain their gold resources was Indi
cated by the simultaneous action to
day of three largo central banks of
Europe, and a call for a meeting to
morrow Of a fourth. The Dank of
England advanced its rato to 7 per
cent, a rate which had not before
been reached sinco 1873.' The Bank
of Franco advanced Its regular dis
count rate lrum ii 1-2 to 4 per cent,
and 11:. 'd the rate to answer on se
currK'3 at 4 1-2 per cent. The Na
t uiit.1 Bank of Belgium advanced its
rato of discount from 5 1-2 to C per
cent, and a mueciug tomorrow has
been called of the governing board
of the Hank of Germany, when It is
expected the discount rato will be
raised to 7 per cent. These move
ments In Europe are regarded as an
indication of the anxiety of New
York to command gold and tho ef
forts of European banks to protect
themselves against tho demands.
Advancing of discounts, however,
are received as Insufficient to pre
vent further Importation of gold into
this country, in view of the large
credits which are being created by
shipment of wheat and cotton. Tho
high rato In London is not expected
to arrest shipment of gold to Amer
ica, but Is to equalize tho distribu
tion of metal among European
money centers so as to offset losses
to America by Imports from other
places. Tho fact that tho Dank of
Franco lias advanced its rato is rec
ognition of the severity of the pres
sure upon that bank's great gold re
serve. The action is especially sig
nificant because it is tho consistent
policy of tho Bank of France to af
ford commerce the benefit of a low
and uniform rato of discount. Con
ditions in the national money mar
ket make it necessary to protect re
serves. The stock market reflected
the pressure for money by consider
ably decreasing today. But these de
creases were expected by bankers
who looked upon tho rapid advance
of yesterday as hardly justified by
the situation. The ongagoment of
gold today brought up the total im
portation on tho present movement
to $40,425,000. The situation re
garding trust companies is gradually
becoming normal. The committee
of presidents of these companies Is
satisfied their assets aro ample to
meet all demands.
NEW STORE WILL

I. S. Jennings, formerly of Portland,

TOM NICHOLS ELECTED
Fire Hoys Discuss Pntronngc of An
nual Halls inn Decide Public
Is Not Appreciative.
At the meeting of tho volunteer
Fire Department last evenlqg,
Thomas Nichols was olocted chief In
place of Ed Colgan who lately re
signed. Several matters of business
came before tho meeting. Tho city
will have a chemical engine, which
will be here about the first of Jan
uary, and the boys aro looking for
ward to the event with considerable
Interest. Councilman Lockhart was
present at the meeting, and informed
the boys that the new quarters for
tho Fire Department will bo ready by
the first of the year, and that many
conveniences aro to bo established
for the fire boys. Among these will
be a meeting place and quarters for
lodging any firemen who may be re
quired to be on duty at night.
Each member was appointed a
committee of ono to solicit new mem
bers and thus swell tho department
to such a membership that there will
be no lack of help in cases of
emergency. L. R. Robinson, W. P.
Murphy and Herbert Lockhart were
appointed on the committee to ar
range for the annual Christmas ball.
There was quite a. discussion on tho
part of the volunteers with regard to
tho attendance at the balls during
the past two years. At neither of
tho balls was there tho patronage
which tho evenfn deserved, and there
was a general . feeling among tho
boys that tho public is not fully ap
preciative of the services which tho
volunteers give the city.

High School course and tho citizens
who made tho decision last evening
may well feel proud of the vote.
There was a total of 84 rotes cast,
and of these every ono except a lone
vote was for tho proposal of adding
two years to the present course.
What tho lone vote represented is
unknown, but those who are favor
able to tho High School believe tho

BIG BOYS WILL PLAY
Marshfleld and North Bend to
Scrumble on the Gridiron on
Great things will be doing in
Marshfleld or North Bend on
Thanksgiving day if the plans of
numerous college athletes who have
settled on Coos Bay materialize, for
there Is a belief among such that
the yearly turkey day should have
some greater significance than mere
ly the fact of stowing away white
meat and black. Further than this,
there Is a friendly rivalry which sug
gests a football game between tho
athletically inclined in the two cities
Is something of a necessity, to say
nothing of the reminiscences of ye
olden times it would develop. There
is good football timber In both North
Bend and Mar3hfield, and the annual
recurrence of the supreme effort In
football circles should have as much
attention on Coos Bay as elsewhere,
according to Stanfleld Arnold, of our
sister city, who has issued a defy to
the Marshfield gridiron bunch. Mr.
Arnold complains that Bert Dimmick
has been carying around sundry
challenges and Invitations to gather
a Marshfield aggregation to contest
a game on Thanksgiving without
having paid due and proper notice
to the importunities from the north.
Mr. Dimmick wa3 seen today and
asked regarding tho breach of alum
ni courtesy. It was learned that ho
had been too busy to give the mrtter
attention, but that the reply had
been mailed and It carried an ac
ceptance of tho challenges. It is
therefore probable that the Marsh
flold contingent of the coming fray
will soon be seen In constant prac
tice and training tables and good
habits will bo in order. Mr. Dim
mick said his team would scarcely
have time to grow long hair, but
thdy would do the best they could
in its absence. He has several men
who will need considerable training
for reduction of superfluous 'issue,
but ho hopes to carve them down
through practice until they meet
I ho requirements.
Mr. Arnold, who was seen, was
rather modest In his claims and
mado no boasts except to say that
ho hoped tho North Bend players
ould get a chance to show what
they can do.
Tho place for playing the gamo
has not been decided upon, but it
will likely be Marshfleld, as there
should bo a better gate here for such
Gold Was Melted.
Tacoma, Nov. 7. Frightened at
the money situation, C. J. Atkinson,
a laborer, converted his savings into

Tho house burned down last night.
Atkinson Is washing the ashes of his
house to recover the gold. He found
two ?5 gold pieces and a $20-piece

Arrive From Minnesota.
Mr. and Mrs. Otto Oren, parents
of J. E. Oren, of the G. A. Smith
company, arrived yesterday on the
Alliance from Minneapolis. Mr.
Oren had a homo ready for them in
south Marshfield and they are now
residents of this city. Mr. and
Mrs. August Carlson, and children
also came on the Alliance to reside
In Marshfleld. Mrs. Carlson Is a
sl3ter of J. E. Oren.

thrown out for being defective. The
High School students wero out In
force, and helped gather tho crowd
for the election. The boys had bolls
and paraded the streets, announcing
the fact of an election being on.
Many expressions of satisfaction
wero heard after the votes wero
counted for the general unanimity
of the expression was very gratify
ing to the people at large and even
though the vote was not Btrong tho
sentiment Is undoubted, and it
makes a great showing for the city.
NO CLEW YET TO
Thiols, Pinkerioiis and' Private
tenths Ilavo Failed to Earn
Baker City, Or., Nov. 7. So com
ple.e has been tho getaway made by
the assassins of Harvey K. Brown
that not even a trace has been dis
covered by which the ofilcers may
ascertain the identity of the crimi
nals. Since Brown was blown up at
his gate on the evening of September
30, several detectives have been at
work on the case without any result
being obtained, and officers are now
-is much in the dark as they ever
The Thiel Detective Agency wafc
the first employed on the case, and
Captain Swain, head of the Spokane
branch, was put in charge of the
work here, but failed to obtain an
knowledge of tho identity or where
about3 of the assassins. After the
Thiol agency, tho Pinkortons were
secured to try to unravel the mys
tery, but, much to their chagrin and
that of the citizens of Baker City,
they havo "fallen down" as hard as
anyone else. There have been doz
ens of sleuths working on the case
becauso of the reward of 510,000 of
fered for the capture and conviction
of the assassins. Frank Tucker, ar
rested about two weeks after tho
murder for having made the state
ment that he knew the guilty parties, J
is still confined in tho county jail,
but tho ofifcers have found that his
story was merely the imaginings of
a liquor-crazed brain. It seems to
be the general opinion that tho guil
ty parties escaped immediately af
ter the crime was committed, and
are now far away from Baker City.
LOOK FOR TROUBLE
WITH UTE INDIANS
Omaha, Nov. 7. Colonel Frank
West and eight troops of tho second

Indians Aro Restless.
Huron, S. D Nov. 7. James Mac
bomer has arrived from the scene of
the Indian trouble and says tho Ute3

and while thero Is no occasion for
Immediate alarm, the matter may
become serious any moment.
