EEYIEW OP THE LOCAL MABBET.
There is not many changes to note in
our review of the market for the past
week. The great anxiety felt about the
successful passage of the portage railroad
bill for the Cascades, has absorbed
everything else at. the expense of all
kinds of traffic and as a result there has
not been much done in business lines.
Freight rates have been discussed
thoroughly ; also the condition in which
the producing classes are interested.
The high rates charged by the railroad
company on grtrln from the interior of
Eastern Oregon to the sea board and the
increased rates on ocean tonnage of
vessels to foreign markets has put a
different phase on the situation and now
as a result the greater part of the wheat
is going east by rail, instead of west to
the metropolis, thereby realizing more
for the grain laid down in Chicago, net,
than at Portland. The present freight
rate on wheat is 10J cents per bushel,
and were the rates reduced to 1 cents
per bushel, our f armers . would realize
59 to 60 cents instead of 56 or 57 cents.
An open river from this point to the sea
would remedy the evil as far as inland
transportation is concerned.
In the present' condition of the local
wheat market here, there are no changes
of importance. The European markets
are up and down just as often as cargoes
are repored off the coast, and the quota
tions are correspondingly the same.
Chicago and New York grain quota
tions are as fluctuating as formerly,
with no encouraging features to report.
Chicago's May delivery quotation is
97; New York, 1.04.
Portland's market remains unchanged

unchanged. Valley is quoted $1.25

Greene Arrested on
. of Embezzlement.
Pendleton, Feb. 11. M. J.' Greene
secretary and manager of the Pendleton
Hardware & Implement company, which
assigned yesterday, was arrested last eve
nine on complaint of Benjamin Selling
president of the company on a charge of
embezzlement. His examination occurs
tomorrow. Greene is under bonds of
$2,500. Greene maintains his innocence
and claims the charge is brought against
mm lor spitework.
Benjamin Hozan. bookkeeper for the
company for the past two years, says the
books are straight. Greene's arrest has
created considerable excitement, as he
stands well in the community. ' He ran
tor mayor in the last election and came
near being elected, Senator Raley win

The device lately hit upon by a mem
ber of the Paris" police force for catching
a truer was certainly an ingenious one,
but now . that the , light fingered fra
ternity know of the trap they will prob
ably be on their guard in future. At one
of the large dress warehouses in the
Faubourg St. Germain there had been,
it appears, for several weeks past a
number of robberies committed, and
though the strictest watch was kept by
the inspectors it had been impossible to
discover the thief. In the majority of
cases the unknown shoplifter took away
with him elegant and costly mantles ex
posed for sale on dummies in the shop,
choosing his time for operating so well
that his identity remained a mystery.
The police were at length appealed to,
and in order to catch the rogue one or
two agents were, at the suggestion of a
member of the force, ordered to substi
tute themselves for the dummies or
rather, to hide themselves inside their
wirework frames. It was not long be
fore the plan succeeded. A day or two
since, just as a richly trimmed mantle
was being cleverly removed from the
shoulders of a dummy, the individual
engaged in the act felt himself grasped
tightly by a pair of strong arms, and
held a prisoner. . The shoplifter's fright
at finding the dummy to be, so to say,
inhabited, was so great that it deprived
him of speech and action, and he made
no attempt to escape from the constable's
grip or to explain away his conduct.
He is now lodged in prison, and on any
future thieving expedition of this kind
he will probably be suspicious of dum
mies. London Standard.
Football on the Bowery.
In a shop window on the Bowery is a
most realistic and exciting representa
tion of the Yale-Princeton football
match. The back of the window is cov
ered with a strip of canvas painted to
represent a grand stand filled with peo
ple, and the floor of the window is spread
with green stuff to represent grass. The
players are dolls dressed in the appropri
ate costumes and colors of the players,
ana a lot or tnem are massed on top of a
small football in the center of the field.
The names of the players and their po
sitions are posted at the side, with the
announcement that these two teams have
been engaged to play an exhibition game
for the delectation of the employes of
tne turn making tne display.
It would be interesting to hear Capt.
Poe and Halfback McClung's remarks if
they heard they were advertised to play

While walking along the new elevated
tracks of the Pennsylvania railroad, as a
train passed over it at a fair rate of
aed, the steel work gave forth a dis
tinct musical sound, as though a great
violoncello were stretched from Hender
son to Monmouth streets. There was no
tremble or jar, or click at the rail joints.
Indeed, the sound did not come from the
rails, but from the steel girders and pil
lars, and continued until the locomotive
had struck the solid- ground six blocks
above. . The sound is an octave above
the deep bass of Niagara falls.
With a long vestibule train the effect
will be startling. I venture to predict
that the dwellers along the line will not
complain of the noise of the passing
trains, for, though somewhat loud, it is
yet harmoniously musical. Hence it
will not disturb anybody. Philadelphia
Bulletin. . "
Curt Abel, retired corporal in the
Wurtemberg contingent of the German
army, nas been condemned to fourteen
days' arrest by a court martial in Frei
burg. Abel's offense was that he ex
posed the abuses practiced by German
officers on German privates, and enu
merated in several sensational pam
phlets cases in which soldiers had been
beaten, burned with cigars, and cut
with knives ' by lieutenants in command
of them. The ostensible reason of his
punishment, however, was that he had
observed these abuses without reporting
them. Abel s trial and sentence have
aroused much indignation in all the
German Liberal dailies which consider
his treatment a matter of simon pure
intimidation. Berlin Letter.
