Feksno, Cal. Dec. 9. A report has
reached here, by way of Lemoore, that
Evans and Son tag have been seen in
White Deer valley. Detectives are scat
tered all over tbe mountains in disguise,
and several of them visited White Deer
valley, a secluded region lying several
miles back of Sampson's flat. Very few
persons live in that locality, it being
merely a stock range. It was suspected
that Evans and Sontag had a winter'
camp among the hills somewhere hear
ihistplace, and an effort was made to
trace them to it. Among those owning
cattle in that region is Edwin Dooley,
who had an exciting adventure with the
train robbers. Some sportsmen ' among
whom was Rev. Led ford, of Lemoore,
were hunting in the White Deer valley,
and left their horses with. Dooley who
turned them into the pasture with his
own animals. One of the horse9 es
caped and Dooley was searching for it.
While following a trail a short -distance
from the iiouse, he heard a shot and
felt a bullet whistle - past him. He
turned around and, looking up, saw
sontag and bvans standing not more
than 30 yards away. ' They accosted him
in a harsh manner and asked - trim what
he was doing there, and whether or not
he was taking care of pack horses be
longing to the detectives. Dooley as
sured the bandits that he had nothing
at all to do with the detectives, but in
in the meantime tbev put a convenient
tree between the bandits and him
self, as he was fearful lest the next time
their aim might prove more accurate
He said that Sontag still carried his arm
in a sling, due to the wound received in
a fight with a posse at Young's cabin,
and both men had their feet wrapped up
in gunny sacks presumably to prevent
their making tracks.
. Canyon City t Defaulter Caught.
San Francisco, Dec. 8. E. A. Brack
ett was arrested today by Detective Cody
upon a requisition from the governor of
Oregon. In 1887 Brackett was clerk of
the school district at Canyon City, Grant
county, and taking about $1,100 of the
district's funds, tied. An indictment
was found by the grand jury, but it was
only a few weeks ago that Brackett was
traced, and then he was serving 250 days
as "trusty" in the city prison for carry
ing concealed weapons. Since his re
lease he had been working for a local
coal and wood dealer. Sheriff Combs
and Deputy Brown will take him back
Clis' in the Cotton. Trade.
London, Dec. 8. Secretary Mawdsley,
of the Lancashire operative spinners,
said today that in his opinion the crisis
in the cotton trade would not be reached
before the end "of January.-; The accumu
lated stocks would then be exhausted.
Orders for the spring trade would raise
prices and the master spinners would
find it necessary to reconsider their
present decision. -.

The way is this: You pay your drug

St. Paul Press. Frank Millet, whose
name on the corner of a square makes it
worth a small fortune, has invented a
machine to paint tbe white building! at
Jackson park, with the assistance of this I
machine two men can smear as much
paint or kolsomine as forty men with
brushes. The invention is a very simple
one. It works like a charm, and aside
from the speed with which it decorates
a building, it possesses the advantage of
never going out on a strike or quarrel
ing with the boss for shorter hours or
larger pay. Necessity was the mother
of this invention. It would have been
impossible to get enough of painters in
tbe building to color them before the
gates opened, and the expense would
have been enormous.. , Somebody men
tioned this. to Mr. Millet one day and he
went to work to produce the machine.
After a number of experiments he put
the device in running order. It is sim
ply a gaspipe about a foot long pounded j
flat at one end eo as to leave an opening
about an inch across and wide enough
to insert a . sheet of cardboard. This
pipe is attached to a long piece of rubber
hose. The other end of the hose is
dipped in a barrel of paint, and an elec
tric motor pumps a current of air and a
lot of paint through the hose. The
force of the air scatters the , paint in- a
line spray as it comes from the gaspipe.
The painter simply seises the gaspipe,
holds It about eighteen inches from the
surface he is decorating, the electric
motor is started and the work is done.
The Commercial Review in summing
up the. flour trade and the' prospects for
the future, says the outlook for better
prices for flour is not yet very encourag
ing, and from appearances flour is going
down.': We are informed that mills arr
selling flour at $3.30 per barrel. This is
a loss to the mill owner, and shows poor
business judgment. The only remedy
millers have at the present market
price is to close down their mills. There
is an over-production now for the Port
land market, and it seems foolish ' to
run their mills losing money. '. The
mills -in Oregon and Washington made
no money in 1891 and we are positive
that they are all losing money this year.
We have not yet seen a plan of the O. &
W. Millers' Association that is feasible
to overcome this loss. The best plan at
the present time is to close down your
mill and await a rise in the market.
Not Worthy of Improvements.
Washington, Dec. 8. Captain Sy
mons, who was directed to examine
Rogue river, from Grants Pass to its
mouth, reports to the war department
that the river is not worthy improve
ment, and congress is advised to make
no appropriation for the purpose. He
says there are too many waterfalls and
rapids in the river, and the commerce
does not justify improvements at the
mouth of the river.

It receives general indorsement, as in

To Fool the Conference in Coming; to
any General or Special Solution
of the Silver Question.
Brussels, Dec. 6. The bimetal list
delegates to the international monetary
conference are discussing whether or
not they shall unite in signing a memo
randum on the obstruction offered by
Great Britain to a determination of the
questions before the conference. If the
conference resumes its sittings after a
prolonged adjournment, such a protest,
it is conceived, is likely to induce the
British government to present to the
conference a decided policy . through its
delegates acting in unison thereon. The
present British delegation appears to
have been sent purposely to muddle the
proceedings. There is . no cohesion
among ' tbe British representatives,
either as to principle, or procedure.
Each delegate appears to act as an indi
vidual agent, except Sir C. Rivers Wil
son and Sir Fremantle, deputy master
of the British mint, the. latter of wh im
used his official position to declaim any
responsibility for the proposals pre
sented by Rothschilds. Bertram Currie
and Sir William Houldsworth have not
a single idea in common, and have a -strong
mutual contempt for each other's
views. - Neither. General Strachy nor
Sir Guilford Mplesworth, the Indian del
egates, nave .otnciai orders as to tne
course to take. It has been made clcir
the British government has purposely
avoided giving any instructions tending;
to the common action of its delegates
upon any point whatever. It is now
obvious this course was designed to foot
the conference in coming to any general
or special solution of the silver question.
Two Brave Girls Save a Train Front
Tacoma, Dec. '8. Two brave girls,
with a lantern, saved a heavilv laden
Southern Pacific -passenger train from
total destruction, near Grant's Pass, Or.,
Wednesday evening. The wreckers had
removed the outside rail over the high
trestle across Cow creek canyon, and
had not tbe engineer been signaled just
as he was approaching it, the entire
train would -have plunged to the bottom
at the rocky gulch, 45 feet below. The
full story of' the attempted wreck, which
the Southern Pacific evidently sup
pressed, is told bere tonight by Dr. G.
V. Calhoun, one of the Washington
presidential electors, who arrived this
evenini; from California. He savs that
the displaced rail was discovered by two
young ladies who crossed the trestle
with a lantern just before the train ar-
rird Thftv wprt hnrrifipd at thfi dis
covery. Just then the train was heard
approaching. One of the girls instantly
rushed up the track swinging the lan
tern over her head, seeing whfch the 'en
gineer stopped the train at the approach
of the- trestle. The train consisted of
twelve cars containing 250 passengers
and Dr. Calhoun eays the loss of life
would have been frightful had the train
not been stopped. The wreckers did
j the work'quickly, sis the track was . all
right when the watchman passed over
j the trestle half an 'hour before train
time. When the passengers learned of
j their narrow escape they made up a
purse and appointed a committee to
learn the identity of the brave -irls and
buy each an appropriate ' Christmas
