A SHERIFF DIES.
The Excitement of Hanging a Murderer
Probably the Cause.
Suerbkook,' Que., Dec. 19. Sheriff
Webb died suddenly of heart disease
this morning. Excitement attending
the execution of Remi Lamontague was
probably the cause. The" death of the
sheriff delayed the execution but a few
'minutes, arid Lamontague ' was hanged
In July, 1888, Lamontague went to the
house of his brother-in-law, Napoleon
Michigan, enticed him to the door and
shot him twice, then cut his throat,
slashed his body, dragged him back into
the house .and . set it on fire. The
wouricled man dragged himself from the
flames badly scorched, but died after a
few weeks. -The murderer's sister, Leda,
wife of the victimvH&a ajrestedior com
plicity in the crime. It came out at the
trial that Leda and her brother had
been living in incest. ' She was acquit
ted, but her brother was convicted.
An Insnrance Company in Trouble.
Portland, Or., Dec., 19. In the
United States court to-day, in the mat
ter of the appointment of a receiver for
the Northwest Fire & Marine Insurance
Company, on petition of Charles R. Bar
nett, a stockholder, and citizens of Ken
tucky, came up. The petition was filed
December 8th and alleges that the Com
pany is insolvent, that the directors
have maintained filed statements in
regard to its financitl condition for the
purpose of deceiving stockholders and
The last published statement of the
company shows total assets of the com
pany to be $264,823.88; liabilities $113,
482.78. Upon this showing the direct
ors will probably ask that the petition
be set aside and that the company be
allowed to continue business. Hearing
is now in progress. The company have
risks throughout the Northwest esti
mated at about nineteen million dollars.
The company sustained severe Ipsses at
the time of the Seattle, Spokane and
A Small Skirmish.
Rapid City, N. D., Dec. 19. Captain
Stentons with his troops has just re
turned. It is learned that he had a
skirmish with a large party of Indians
heading for Bad Lands. Shots were ex
changed in quite a lively manner for
some time, when the Indians escaped to
the Bad Lands. Captain Stanton fol
lowed them for some time but fearing
an ambush he withheld his troops and
returned to camp.
A Montana Hanging.
" Missoula, Mont., Dec. 19, 1890. The
greatest hanging which ever took place
in the northwest occurred this morning
when Lalasee, Pierre, Paul, Antley and
Pascale, five Indian murderers, were
hanged at the court house here. All
died game, Pierre, Paul and Antley
smilingly bidding their friends good bye.
Twenty minutes after the trap was
sprung all were dead. Their necks were

THE BIO STORM.
Raging Nearly all Over the East. Coming
Toward Oregon and California.
New York, Dec. 17. The storm to
day seriously interfered with river and
harbor business. Small boats were sunk
and a number of passenger steamers
which were to have sailed to-day were
unable to do so. Telegraphic communi
ration south and west is seriously inter
A portion of the roof of Daly's theater
was blown off this afternoon and one
man severely injured.
One of the smokestacks on the post-
office building was blown down through
a glass ceiling over the mailing room,
severely injuring several carriers.
Numerous accidents, in the way of
falling signs, etc., detached by the wind,
have been reported, but nfcne of a serious
A heavy storm is prevailing along the
New Jersey coast. At Atlantic City the
tide was the highest of the season. At
Asbury Park and Long Branch great
damage was done.
Poughkeepsie reports u heavy storm of
snow, hail, sleet and rain along the
Hudson all day and to-night. Trains
The heaviest snowstorm for years is
raging at Lock Haven.
At Baltimore the wind blew forty
miles an hour, accompanied, by rain.
The Baltimore & Ohio railroad reports
snow ten inches on the Harper's Ferry
division. The telegraph service is badly
At Staunton, Virginia, three feet of
snow fell. All trains are blockaded.
Pittsburg. Dec.17.-The telegraph, tele
phone and electric wires are down and
business practically suspended. On the
railroads no freight trains were running,
and the passenger trains that struggled
through were late from one to six hours
The pecuniary loss resulting from the
storm cannot now le estimated, but it
will necessarily be very large.
This city, being almost the storm cen
ter,' has suffered most 1 severely. The
monetary' damage is very- great. All
branches of trade, especially railroads
and street car lines, have practically sus
pended, paralyzing business and causing
a total stoppage of operations in the oil
and stock exchange. Through the
breaking of electric light wires, three
horses have been killed, two drivers
knocked unconscious and a street car
filled with frightened passengere set
ablaze in a moment. Police switch
boards and telephones have been burned
out, and as a result the outlying police
districts are isolated. Millions of tons
of coal are lyfng in the back-water from
a dam, and should a rapid thaw ensue,
the greatest damage' will be along the
rivers. Reports from the country dis-
tricts show even greater damage, owing
to the lack of facilities for transportation.
At Bedford, Pa., two feet of snow is re
ported, with a complete blockade of the
lumber business along Blue and Laurel
West Virginia and Eastern Ohio have
suffered greatly, and the situation is
growing worse. A sudden flood is the
greatest calamity now feared. "
At 11 o'clock tonight snow is still fall
ing and has nearly reached the. two-foot
line. A few roofs have been crushed in
by the weight of snow.
Pailadelphia, Dec. 17. The North
east storm last night and to-day was the
severest experienced in this locality
since the memorable blow of September
1889. Telegraph wires are prostrated in
all directions, and only meager reports
of the damage is obtained. In 'this city
many houses were unroofed and other
damage done. Reports from Cape May
and other places on the New Jersey
coast report great damage done to rail
roads, by washouts,
Ashvili.e. N. C Dec. 17. A blind
ing snow storm prevailed here last night
and to-day, and is still raging. Three
hundred and fifty delegates representing
every section of the South were present
at the opening of the Southern inter
state immigration convention which

SI'jOKANK FALLS NATIONAL BANK
Trouble Brought on by Failure to Real
ise on Securities.
Spokanxb Faxxs, Dec. 17. The doors
of the Spokane National Bank, one of
the largest institutions in the city, were
not opened this morning. For nearly a
year it has been known among bankers
that the back was in financial straits,and
more than or.ee other banks have helped
W. II. Taylor, president,, and Warren
Hussey, cashier, notiiied the "various
bunking houses of this city of their disr
tress and asked for assistance. The offi
cers of the other banks called a meeting
that eveningj at which Messrs. Hussey
and Taylor were invited to be present
and make a showing of the affairs of their
bank. The session was a late one. The
bankers adjourned with an understand
ing that the bank could not open Tues
day morning ' without . assistx'Uyc, and
that such assistance should be tendered
for Tuesday or until a full investigation
of its affairs could be made. The show
ing made at the meeting was not borne
out by the investigation that was made
yesterday. At all events, the sum of
$00,000 was raised by the other banks to
tide over the affair of the Spokane Na
tional until the books could be examined.
Last evening another important confer
ence was held, when . it was developed
that $53,000 of the $(50,000 was paid out
yesterday and that immediate obliga
tions might be presented at any time for
300,000, instead of $90,000, as at first
understood. It then became apparent
to the bankers composing the conference
that the bank would have to suspend.
A conference was held in the office of the
Citizens' National bank and adjourned
at a late hour this morning The diffi
culty was precipitated by the failure of
three branches in the Coeur d'Alene
mining district; namely : The bank of -Wardner,
and the Iwnk of Murray, all of
which is said to have been brought about
by a failure to realize on securities held
by the bank for advances made for the
development of various mining proper
ties ; The bank was a United States
depository, but the government with
drew its deposits about two weeks ago. "
Cashier Hussey, who failed heavily
years ago in Denver and Salt Lake,
claims that the assets exceed the liabili
ties"by $140,000. The other banks are in
no way affected by the collapse, as bank
ers generally discredited Mr. Hussey's
ideas of banking. .. ' , - '. - .
Another Fine Picture. '
Mr.. Eisel who painted the picture 'of
North Dalles and The Dalles,' for. Rev;l
O. D. Taylor, placed another specimen
of his work in Crandall & Burget's win
dow this morning. . It is." a view of our
energetic townsman's, . Mr. Seufert's
place, showing the dwelling houses, sta
tion and creamery. The picture is true .
to nature and as a work of art is simply
superb. The view is down the river,
and therefore shows a background
similar to the Dalleu picture, Mts.
Adams and Hood being the limit.
The hills back of The Dalles would
be recognized anywhere by - any
one who has ever lived here and
the view down the Columbia is perfect.
One thing that struck us was the differ
ence between the appearance of Seufert's .
place now, and five years ago. The pic
ture truthfully shows it now covered
with orchards and vineyards, neafcot
tages out-buildings, cannery station and
fences. Then it was a barren flat and
considered almost worthless. It shows
what can be done with our soil, and points
an unerring finger of prophesy at the
future, changes and improvements
near the city. The Dalles is fortunate
indeed in having its beauties transferred
to canvas by so able an artist as Mr.
Eisele, and we sincerely hope that IiIb
brush may find further employment ere
he leaves us. .

The Interstate Investment Company
