They are thought to have been Impli
cated In some of the numerous crimes
tmmitted at Christmas time, but the
police have not yet secured sufficient
evidence to hold these men for highway
robbery, although one of the holdup vic
tims has positively identified the pair.
" The work of the local highwaymen
shows that different "gangs" of crooks
have been responsible, - Borne o . the
holdups were the work of amateurs, who
appeared mors frigtened than their vic
tims. Again the crooks were evidently
old hands in the business, for they
worked with neatness and dispatch. Nor
have ail of these robberies occurred in
the early evening, as the following, list
shows that not a few took place during
the early morning hours. All parts of
the city have holdups to their discredit,
but naturally the suburbs have most
often been the scene of these crimes.-
One thing the local police feel grati
fied over is that the local highwaymen
are not possessed of the brutality which
characterises those of Chicago and other
large cities. In no case have the thugs
offered violence to their victims, even
if they found nothing of value. Fol

Southern California is going to be In
a bad way- the coming fruit season -unless
an unusual amount of rain falls
during the coming next six weeks."
Such is the statement of T. K. State
ler, general agent of the passenger de
partment of the Northern Pacific rail
road at San Francisco. Mr. Stateler ar
rived last Monday with Assistant Gen
eral Passenger Agent A.'M. Cleland, and
will, visit the Sound with Mr. "Cleland
before returning to 'Frisco.
"Up to the time I left, Southern Cali
fornia did not have a drop of rain,"
said Mr. Stateler, "and the fruit is going
to suffer . greatly. I also understand
that the usual snowfall has not appeared
in the- mountains and irrigation reser
voirs will be dry next summer. This
will mean that the peach, plum, prune
and other small fruit crops of the state
will be seriously affected, grains will
be planted only to be burnt up, and
even the grape crop of Southern Cali
fornia will suffer. There will be enough
water for the orange and lemon crops,
but alfalfa and the grasses generally
will have-to grow -as best they-can-in- a
powder, dry soli.
"Trade conditions in San Francisco
are good. The unions are refusing, to
allow tradesmen from outside to enter
the city and the union men already
there are being kept busy. I knew of a
negro who recently cams from Louisi
ana because he heard that masons wers
getting $5 a day In 'Frisco. He went to
work on the board of trade building
and after half a day's work the boss
told him to join the union or quit work.
The negro hunted up a walking delegate
and asked for admission, but was turned
down, the delegate saying the town had
all the men it needed and no more could
be admitted. The negro was a good
brlckmason, but ha could not get work
because he could not join the union, and
the lust I heard of him he was working
as a sleeping car porter."
Mr. Stateler believes the Northern
Pacific should build a line from its Spo
kane branch through Central Oregon to
San Francisco. This line, in his opinion,
would open up the Central Oregon coun
try and afford a rich territory for the
road, besides giving it a terminus at
San Francisco that would enable it to
compete on more that an equal footing
with the Southern Pacific. -
"As it is," said Mr. Stateler, "we turn
lots of business through Oregon by
working the 'Frisco' field ahd getting
business for our line at its Portland
terminus. Apparently the roads 'down
there desire to keep the business in Cali
fornia, and our work, I am sure, has re
sulted in Oregon getting a big share ot
travel and trade it would not have re

"Taylor-street M. E. -church desires
for its next pastor a man of national
reputation and -one who is among the
best In the denomination," Such is the
statement of. a member of the official
board Of the church.
The congregation apparently is willing
to stand behind this declaration, since
steps have been -taken to assure the
next minister of the church the high
est salary paid any minister in the city.
The church at present pays $2,600 -a
year to its minister, and in addition
gives him the church parsonage, the
value of which is probably )900 an
nually in rent. The church, however, in
order to secure a leader,-is willing to
add to this amount at least f 1,000 a
year,--and stands , ready to pay J3.B0O,
or more, if necessary, to secure a pastor
or reputation and exceptional ability.
Though no action has been taken by
the church as a body, nor by the official
board, ' and none will be taken until
some man is found and the salary ques
tion becomes a live issue, still the senti
