Kelly explained he had -bought out the firm of McCalla Sc Donaldson, but was unable to give a good explanation why he had signed their name to the check. As Kelly appeared to be intox icated, Captain Bailey locked htm up on a charge of drunkenness. Williams declares that Kelly gave him the check to commit a zeiony and denies commit ting the alleged holdup. Kelly swore to a complaint this morn ing charging Williams with highway robDery and the case has been set for healing next Friday.

Millions of shipped from this port this fall and win ter, and between 700 and 800 men are required to truck the grain in the ware houses, which constitutes the work of tha arralnhandlers.

Engage Foreign Ships. Another indication of the excellent outlook for a big season is found in the fact that vessels to load ror Europe and the orient are engaged about as quickly as they can be found available. Sev eral new charters were reported this morning, among them being the French barks Martha Roux and Marechael de Turenne, the British ship Buccleuch and the British ship Miltonburn.

WESTERN UNION COMPANY .DELINQUENT IN TAXES Postal Company Has P-aid Part of Its Small Tax, But Re fuses to Pay MoreBoth Companies are Assessed on a Very Low Valuation. Manarlnar officials of the Western -Union an of the. Postal Telegraph companies say that the- business of their companies will not allow any In crease in wages to be paid to operators employed by them and are giving this as one of the reasons why the demands ' of the striking operators, are not met by the companies. Taxpayers of Mult nomah county may conclude that per haps this business conditfbn is also the reason why the western union com pany has paid' none of Its taxes .for last year, now . delinquent, while' the Postal company has paid only B6, out of a total of $240. According to the records at the court house and in the office of Assessor 8lg- " ler the total valuation of the Western Union property in Multnomah county, "including the franchise, is 848,896. The valuation" placed upon the franchise is tl6.0jMr The valuation piaoea upon tne ty of the postal ueiegrapn com- y is $18,600, out or wmcn tne as ed value of .the franchise, amount ing to $15,000. must be taken. , v rostal ray Only Part. : From these 1 valuations the - tax de partment lixed the taxes due; the coun ty, under the 16-mll) lev of last year, at $570.17 for the Western Union and $296 for the Postal company. - Although the taxes for the past year are now de linquent the Western Union has paid prasei ffeai no part of the $670.17 charged against its property, while the Postal company has patd $68 on its account, but refuses to nay the remaining $240 due on its franchise of $16,000. The property valuation of the West ern Union, aside from the $16,000 for the franchise, is $28,395. The property valuation of the Postal company, aside from its $16,000 franchise, is $3,600. It will be seen therefore that the West ern -Union refuses, apparently to pay any of its taxes not alone upon the rranchise, but upon the $28,395 valua tion of its personal and real property, while the Postal company refuses to pay the larger part of its assessment, or the $240 tax uponjts $15,000 fran chise, and onlv nrihi tha rountv with $56 or the tax upon the $3,500 of reai: and personal DroDertv. - Sate of Taxation. .?

Parliament was pro rogued today with the picturesque old fashioned ceremonial. The king's speech was' nerfunctary. One of the loosest and most arduous sessions fn history is o4M407 tne prosogauon. Should a description of her husband's teeth forwarded to Ilwaco by Mrs. James Marion Smith, widow of the Portland physician who was drowned at Long Beach three weeks ago, tally with the description of the body of a man washed ashore at Ilwaco yesterday, the faith heleV;by Mrs. Smith that the sea would ultimately give up its dead and that the body of her husband would be returned to her will have been strangely justified. Ever since the tragic death of her husband Mrs. Smith, who was almost erased by her bereavement, has stead fastly held that sometime Dr. Smith's body would be restored to her. She has waited and watched dally for reports of the finding of a body in the vicinity of Long Beach. Yesterday her vigil ' was rewarded by a dispatch in The Journal from Ilwaco announcing that the badly decomposed body of a man had been washed ashore nt Seavlew, two miles north of Ilwaco. The telegram stated that there were no means of identification and that the clothing had been washed ; from the body, leaving it absolutely nude. But with every other means of Identi fication gone Mrs. Smith is relying upon the accurate description of her - hus band's teeth furnished by his dentist, Dr. D. Howard Miller of tha Mohawk building. Here is the slender thread of evidence on which Mrs. Smith hopes to establish the identity of the body: Gold filling on lingual surface of the upper right Incisor a good-sized filling. Two upper left bicuspids gold crowned. . , On upper right side back of the cus pids, one or two teeth missing. Biignt as mis evidence is Dr. Miller says that tnere should be no difficulty in determining whether the body washed ashore at Seavlew is that of Dr. Miller or not Mrs. Smith has forwarded the description of the teeth to the coroner at iiwaco, and rirmly believes the mys tery of the dead body will be explained wnen me teem are pxaminea. Dr. Smith was an osteopathic phy sician of Portland and the first part of ausubi was spending nts vacation at Long Beach.
