a paper of four pages each seven by

changed from the afternoon to the morn

Seattle, Note
(Srwtut to TbtJonmil.)
Seattle, Wash., Sept 2. The resigna
tion of Henry Hadry, the eminent com
poser, as director of the Seattle Sym
phony orchestra this week, brought the
affairs of this organisation to a crisis.
That the symphony orchestra has not
been in a flourishing financial condi
tion is not a secret, but notwithstand
ing Its lack of support In the past, those
behind the orchestra are determined to
continue its existence. Its future will
be determined at a joint meeting of the
donors of the guaranty fund and the
trustees of the Seattle Symphony soci
ety next week. At a meeting this week
the sentiment" prevailed that the orches
tra be continued and preparations be at
once made for engaging a new direc
tor and bringing distinguished 'artists
here during the coming eason.,
Ksoall Xlsotloa Improbable.
The recall controversy continues un
abated, although the general sentiment
is that those behind the movement will
be unable to secure sufficient names to
call the election. The influence of the
best business elements, which have
come out squarely against the recall
election, branding it as, a foolish and
unnecessary' expense, has resulted In
the withdrawal of hundreds of names
from the petitions. Another much dis
puted question which hasr arisen Is the
right of voters who have moved slnoo
the last election to sign the lists. This
question involves the right, of 728 vot
ers, and It s being considered by th
corporation counsel. That the present
recall movement will fizzle out Is a
well defined opinion. Incidentally, ths
present agitation has made many ene
mies for the recall of people who for-
Umerly were strongly In Its favor.

Southern , Pacific and Wells
Fargo Detectives Follow the
Dogs on Trail of Men Who
Held Up Express Car.
(By the International Kew Swvlca.) :
San Francisco, Sept 2. Southern Pa
cific and Wells-Fargo detectives from
San Francisco and half a dozen points
rin northern California were rushed to
day to the scene of Friday night's hold
up of the California express. Now "a
man hunt, led by baying bloodhounds,
Is in full cry in ths wilds of Shasta
county, near Lamolne. V
Five or six men were in the party of
bandits. When they escaped in the au
tomobile they had ' In readiness they
took, with them $2899 In gold, which
they found in money bags in the ex-
press safes.
The three express messengers who
wers forced under the muzzles of re
volver open one. of the safes and see
two others blown, returned to San Fran
cisco loaay witn details or tbe hold-up.
C. F. Meyers, ths messenger in charge
of the express car, told the story of
the robbery at the office of the Wells
Fargo company. The two men who were
with him described how-he made a bold
but futile dash for the weapons in a
baggage car and of a fusillade fired by
the bandits at curious passengers who
had leaned from the car window to see
why the train had stopped.
The stories told by Meyers, his help
er, George C. Pardee and O. L. Hughes,
depot agent at Portland, who was
working In the express car while 'he
was o,n his way to California- for a va
cation, show that ths hold-up i was
planned with greatest care.
Ths time to blow up the safes had
been calculated to a second. The joH
began with the covering of the express
company's men at Tlbson siding and
was completed Just in time for the ban
dits to Jump from the train to the au
tomobile held in waiting by confeder
ates at Rainbow station.
It is -probable that the two other
bandits remained in hiding on top of the
train to cover the escape of the rob
bers, who worked inside. When the
two safe blowers ran for cover, two
other men wers seen Jumping from the
cars to the ground. '
There is some doubt about the man
ner in whir.h the bandits entered the eg
ress car. The men who were held up
agree In saying that the train robbers
entered by way of a side door of the
car, .whlta the messenger and helpers
were watching a passing ' train through
the open Aoar of the other side.
Fire, caused by spontaneous com
bustion, broke out In the engine room
of the Oregon Furniture Manufacturing
company, near Fulton, shortly after

by manufacturing plants were threat
ened. The main plant of the Oregon
Furniture company was not damaged, .

For a new district the Idltarod is said
to have exceeded all previous Alaska
districts. This section of the North
land has already shipped out In . two
months this season more gold than was
produced 'in the camp, during all of last
year. During the short seasonal lio
the Idltarod shipped out slightly ,more
than $1,000,000, nearly all of which came
to Seattle. The Seattle assay office kas
already received $500,000 this summer
from this camp, while the same amount
is estimated .to have been shipped to
San Francisco. It is estimated that the
Idltarod's 1911 otfiput wljl be close to
$3,000,000. These'.flgures Indicate that
the local assay office is dividing its
