the care of his son. Royal. . The latter
stepped in at the last critical Juncture
and asked to be appointed guardian In or
der to save what property and money
his aged rather possesses. He says that
Sallie McGuire, to whom the elder Love
was engaged to be married, has suc
ceeded In getting from him several
thousand dollars, and secured his signa
ture to a deed of his house and lot at
the corner of Nineteenth and Clinton
"I took Sallie McGuire as a friend

large sums of money on her," said F.

scarcely bring myself to believe that
Sallie would do as she has done.

learned to love her, and she seemed to
reciprocate, so we became engaged.
Since that time I have spent more than
ta.OOO to make her happy, but she dis
plays the basest Ingratitude by attempt

is in the courts now. so I cannot talk as
freely as I should otherwise, but there
are some things I can tell. '

so I paid her fare there and back. She
left me In San 'Francisco with the
understanding that when she returned to
Portland she would Jet me know, so that
X could come home -and we would be

"The next I heard from Sallie f was
when she wired me at 'Frisco for more
money. I had given her ample to re
turn with, but In some manner she spent
it. and so I sent her more by wire. Then
ehe came back to her home in Aberdeen,
Wash., but did not let me know a thing

She had secured between 13,000 and

"Two weeks ago Sallie, Edith Means
and Harry Van Tile, who is employed in
Astoria on the Lurllne dock, came to
this home. I did not like the man's
actions, and plainly told him so, This
roused Miss Mean's wrath, and she
picked up a ' water pitcher with which
she struck me on the nose, breaking the
bones and leaving a scar that Is plainly
visible there now. Sallie helped her.
It broke my heart, for I had done every
thing I could for her because I loved
her, and to think that she would stand
by and see me beaten, and take part in
it, completely broke, me up.
The last I saw of Sallie was when
she was here last Sunday, one week ago,
She left the house, saying she was
going to Aberdeen, and would return the
following Tuesday, but she did not coma
back, and I have not heard, from her
since. I think she is now in Astoria,
and I do not expect to see her again
until this' case is settled one way or the
other. I think she will keep in hiding

"I do not know," was the reply. ."I

An ordinary adult In China will work
for 10 cents a day. At Nagasaki and
Osaka In Japan. English cotton mill
owners have employes of both sexes who
work for less than SI. 50 per week.
British India wages are even lower than
in Japan. A friend of mine who pre'
sided a few years ago at the Indian na
tional congress in Madras visited
newspaper ofllce in that city and found
compositors working for about one shil
ling a day 25 cents.
British India Is an, example of what
China may become under foreign rule,
directed and dominated by the money
power or tungiana. There are some 200,
000.000 of a population highly civil
ized and docile in British East India
At one time "wealth of the Indies" was
a proverbial expression. The country
was lamea lor its mines and manufac
tures, for the opulence of its cities and
for the daxzllng riches of its oriental
basaars. England has ruled these count'
less millions of eastern people for the
last 160 years, with what results?
Let me answer by facts and figures
from accepted authority on the condition
of British India. Wm. Digby. an ex
British, Indian official, in his latest work,
says: "prosperous British India, pub
llshed by the Fisher Union, London,
proves to the hilt the following facts:
The average dally wage per head of a
worker In India in 1850 was two pence
(four cents). In 1882 it was "one penny
and a half. In 1900 it was-three far
things. These 200,000,000 eastern peo
ple are British subjects. Not one hu
man being among them can exercise a
right to vote for the English governor
sent from London to rule them, or for
the, secretary of state who governs the
country from London, or can Influence in
any way the expenditure of taxes and
the levies on the people by their foreign
masters. There are 70,000.000 of these
British citizens unable to read or write.

when Mrs. Downs left her home to
run away with Alvord she did not even
bid her children goodbye. Coming to

Mr. Downs believes his wife had no
money with her because he had just re
turned from Tacoma, where be had been
with his eldest daughter, and had taken
nearly all the money with him in order
to pay an eye specialist, who had been
treating the child. Alvord, accordini
to his wife, had less than 1100.
Mrs. Downs purchased a ticket to
Kelso, Wash. She boarded the train
alone and Alvord, who had been hiding
behind a water tank, jumped on the cars
after the train. was in motion. He paid
his rare to the conductor.
After their arrest in this city Alvord
informed a reporter for the Journal that
he Intended to go to Oregon City by
trolley and then take the Southern Pa'
cine train presumably for California.
After Alvord and . Mrs. Downs were
released by order of Chief of Police
Hunt the former went to the Multnomah
lodging house at Fifth and Morrison
streets and secured room 12. He was
alone. Later Mrs. Downs appeared with
the key to the room, but the landlady,
Mrs. Anderson, refused to allow her to
enter the place. The woman then de
parted and that was the last seen of
either of them in Portland.
Mr. Downs is of the opinion that the
couple is still lii the vicinity of Port
land and that Alvord intends to work In
order to secure funds before attempting
to get further away. '
Presiding Elder Williamson of Cheha-
lis is said to have changed Mr. Downs'
intention not' to pursue or prosecute the
elopers. Mr. Downs was at first in
clined to take no action. ,
