been heard since.

slightly acquainted with Mr. Jones, re-
be $40,000, and of this amount $30,000 )nf?
has been raised, largely due to the ef
forts of ex-Ooveri-or James H. Brady of
Idaho. Twenty-five thousand dollars
will be given by the railroads, In addi

'I do not know when Oregon has had

was doubtful as to whether a plan of

will be a complete success."
Three of the 10 western states con

They are Utah, Idaho and Washington.
The Oregon portion Is considered as

The other clue Is a report that B.. A.

Friday night at that place, and that an
unknown man reported at the Oregon
hotel that he had seen a man In The

Brooks and the unknown man both rec

(Special to The Journal.)
Florence, Or., Sept. 4. I. B. Cushman,
president of the Port of Sluslaw com
mission, yesterday returned from Port
land, where he wss advised by the
I nlted States engineer's office that blda
for the building of the north Jetty will
be asked for at once, which' means that
the contract will probably be let early
In October. Engineer Berry of the
Wakefield Construction company, which
built the south Jetty, came In with Mr.
Cushman to examine the work and pre
pare a bid. The Wakefield company Just
recently finished the south Jetty, which
was paid for by bonds sold by the port
to the amount of $100,000. The port
raised $115,000 for the north Jetty, and
the federal government furnished a like

he left home. The description given by
the man from The Dalles Is correct ex

were lace, while Jones left with button

Been on Train.
A circumstance which still further
clinches the theory that Jones started
east Is the report of a conductor on the
Troutdale line of the P. R.. L. & P.
company about noon Tuesday; the day
he disappeared, that he rode on his
car. This would give him a chance to
leave town without getting on a train
at the Union depot If he wished, tak
ing it at Troutdale, Instead. This re
port was received soon after Jones' dis
appearance, but little thought was given
at that time as It was supposed then
that he had gone to Estacada.
Several incidents which happened Just
prior to his departure lead to the be
lief that he was out of his mind be
fore he left and that to a certain ex
tent he planned to leave. The morning
of bis disappearance he withdrew his
papers and some Jewelry belonging to
Mrs. Jones from the safety deposit
vault where he had been keeping them
In his bank. He did this with the ex
planation that he would not need the
vault longer, although his time did not
expire until next Wednesday.
When he brought the Jewelry home
he laid It on the table, saying: "There's
your- Jewelry." While Mrs. Jones had
not asked for it, she did not think much
of It at the time. Another peculiar
action he made was to pull his money
from his pocket and hand Mrs. Jones
a couple of dollars, telling her to go
shopping and buy herself something.
This fact was not so unusual, but the
manner In which he offered the money
surprised Mrs. Jones.

with him when he had occasion to be
