1SDIKD A BLACK SHEEP.
How Gullible Colonists From Minnesota
Parted With Their Honey.
Tacoma, Jan. 15. The local colony of
former residents of Stillwater,. Minn.,
have been fleeced recently to the tune of
about $400 by the "black sheep" repre
sentative of a prominent family of that
city. D. B. Staples, or "Dave," as he
is more familiarly known, is the son of
millionaire Staples, the lumber kiug of
Stillwater. As a boy he was wild and
as he grew older he was wilder, which in
a short time developed 'nto something
more than the usual "rich man's son's
escapades, and he shot his man in a dis
pute over a horse race. This caused his
arrest, and all his father's money could
not save him from conviction. About
three months ago Dave Staples arrived
in Tacoma with no apparent purpose ex
cept to enjoy himself. He made it his
business to become acquainted with the
fortner Stillwater residents, and with
them he made no concealment of his
past history, but always said : "The old
man will always look out for me." Af
ter he had been in the city a few weeks
he secured occasional loans from the
colonists, many of whom had formerly
been in the employ of his father, and
when they suggested payment he said :
"The old man will send me some money
in a few days," and then asked for a
further loan. The Stillwater colony be
came alarmed a few days ago when they
heard that he was about to leave Tacoma
for the east. They looked him up and
asked him about it, but he said that he
was going to - remain in Tacoma until
spring. One of his creditors, his land
lord, W. J. Chance, had little confidence
in his promises, and swore out a warrant
for his arrest for a $46 board bill. In
some way young Staples got wind of it
and took the next train for parts un
known, and eluded the constable with
the warrant. , The Stillwater colony
mourns his loss, but will write a letter
to the millionaire father, asking reim
bursement of their losses.
A TRUE HKROIJiK.
With All the Crew Sick She Brings the
Boat to Port.
New York, Jan. 15. The steamship
Alva, from Port Simon, Hayti, arrived
here to-day and brought to this city
Miss Maud Annie, daughter of the cap
tain oi the bark James H. Hamlin, who
navigated the vessel and took her safely
to port while her father and the crew
were suffering from fever. Miss Annis
is eighteen years old, slight of stature,
has black hairand sparkling eyes. She
was very modest when spoken to about
her heroic act. Three weeks ago the
bark was reported by the steamship
Newport as being off Navassa, December
12, with all hands ill with yellow
fever. One man stood at the wheel
despite his sickness. The Hamlin left
St. Lucia for Mobile November 30. Two
days after leaving, the crew began to
complain of illness, one by one. On the
fifth day the captain diagnosed the com
plaint as yellow fever. Texas Smith,
the first mate, was the first to succumb
to the disease,
December 2 he died and
was buried at sea
Three days later two
more of the crew took to their berths.
December 10 Captain Annis had to fol
low the others, leaving the care of the
vessel to the second mate andhisdaugh
ter. The latter took her place at the
wheel while the mate adjusted the sails.
The Newport hove in sight December 15.
The steamer was signalled that they
were sick and that food had given out.
The surgeon was sent from the Newport
together with some food. Captain
Annis wanted the steamer to tow him to
port, but this the captain could not do.
He offered to put a man on board to
pilot the vessel, but that Captain Annis
did not want, and the steamer went on
her way. Miss Annis and the mate
continued to work the vessel until near
Aux Cayes, when the former fell ill. A
pilot happened along just in time to
take charge of the bark and take it to
port. Miss Annis was taken to the
house of the British consul, where she
remained for two weeks, until she re
covered. Must be Expected.
Washington, Jan. 15. Secretary Win-
dom has decided that all foreign cattle

NATIONAL BASEBALL MATTERS.
Joint Meeting of the League and Asso
New York, Jan. 15. Delegates from
the National League and American As
sociation met again to-day. The diffi
culty in freezing out the Toledo, Syra
cuse and Rochester clubs seems to have
been bridged over. Rochester is willing
to drop out and has been brought in.
The Toledo club may be bought by the
association to-day. Differences in the
national league are still serious, as the
Boston magnates are still obdurate in
the demand that they be allowed the
whole- field to themselves. They are
fighting to keep out the association
franchise. It is not thought a settle
ment will be reached by the League to
day, but the associations seem to have
business well under way for a conclu
sion. The American association met this
morning, but ndjourned again until 3
o'clock. The Toledo club's injunction
against the association was waived,
pending the prospective settlement of
Matters in Congress.
Washington, Jan. 17. After sitting
all night the senate is still in session at
10 :30 a. m. Faulkner concluded his
speech against the election bill, having
held the floor for almost twelve hours.
Stewart has given notice' of a motion
to recommit elections bill with instruc
tions to the committee to report it back
with a provision for the election of mem
bers of congress on days when no other
elections are held in the several states.
The senate has rejected the amend
ment offered by Vest by -a vote of thirty
two to twenty-five Teller, . Wolcott,
Washburn, and Stanford voted with
their republican colleagues, leaving
democratic vote a strict party one.
The republican majority determined
to adjourn about 3 o'clock, until Monday
night. At that time the continuous
session had lasted two hours. The ses
sion is unprecedented in length for
many years, meanwhile they are mean
ing to have caucus Monday night, to
determine further order of procedure.
A Business Change.

Jackson Engine Co., may justly feel
proud. There were thirty-six maskers,
and the hall was filled to its utmost
capacity with spectators. There were
eevsral elegant costumes but as we can
not mention each as being the most
beautiful, we are compelled to forego the
pleasure of mentioning any except the
prize winners. We know The Dalles and
know . when we are' well off. Mrs.
Richard Barker, as a Spanish girl, took
first prize, a plush work case ; Mrs. Mat
Blazen, as nurse girl, securing the second,
plush collar and cuff box ; Julius Fisher,
as a marine, took first gentleman's prize,
a gold headed cane, and Julius Wiley as
North Dalles tramp, a fine bronze table
gong. Everybody was well pleased with
the evening's enteriinment, and we are
glad indeed to note the fact.
