that in his researches he discovered that
the Rockefellers are of noble lineage,
that the ancestors of the family in
Southern France were barons, and that
the South of France ancestry of the
family dates back farther than any of
the other branches. The Germany branch
which heretofore bas been considered the
original branch. Dr. Lewis declared, is
merely a branch of the French family
which early in history crossed the bor
der into Germany.
It was expected that John D. Rocke

SUIT AGAINST HARDEN.
BERLIN, Germany, Nov. l.-The Har-den-Maltke
case has entered on a new
phase, the state'a attorney having decid
ed to take the matter up and begin suit
against Harden before a bench of five
judges. The sate's attorney said today:
"Von Moltke apparently) had no ade
quate opportunity at the recent trial to
clear himself of Herr Harden' charges."
It is recalled that originally the state's
attorney refused to bring suit agajnst
Harden at Von Moltke' instance.
Since tbe work on the llwaco Rail
road & Navigation Company extension
wa suspended, checks amounting td
a few thousand dollar bav been cashed
by local businesa men,'' drawn by th
contracting firm of Erickson k Peter
con, who bave tbe contract for building
the road. Tbe check were drawn on
the Merchant! National Bank of Port
land, and a few that were sent to that
institution were returned unpaid. Many
rumor floated around as to thee
check, and inasmuch as th check of
the firm, issuing them, had heretofore
been paid promptly, it wa thought by
some that wholesale forgery had been
committed. Inquiries made of several
of tbe parties cashing tb check, dis
closed tbe fact that they were not
worrying about their moneyv While not
beimr able to rive a reason for the bank
refusing to honor tbe check of th firm,
issuing them, had heretofore been paid
promptly, it waa thought by some that
wholesale forgery bad been committed.
Inquiries made of several of the parties
cashing the checks, disclosed the fact
that they were not worrying about their
money. While not being able to give
a reason for the bank refusing to. honor
th checks it wa the consensu of opin
ion that the trouble is due to a misun
derstanding. It was generally) agreed
that the checks were worth their face
value, though they may not be paid at
once, and that the only trouble would be
the inconvenience caused by a delay in
adjusting matters. By some it is
thought that the contractors have not
received payment due them, as they
expected, and as a consequence funds
that they supposed were in the bank
have not been placed there.
No doubt the matter will be straight
ened out, in a few days, and more will
be learned as to the cause of the re
fusal of apyment of the checks.
