One of McConnell's bondsmen said yes terday that, although no one knew where the defaulter had gone,' the matter had been reported to the police and every effort would be made to find him and bring him back to answer for his crime. It has transpired since the departure of McConnell that he in some way pos sessed himself of $1000 life insurance which was carried in the order by the late H. G. Mathies, and spent it with the rest of his stealings. The money was placed in McConnell's bands to pay the widow, and he blew it in, and the "widow is deprived of the benefits which the husband provided for her by joining the order. Oregonian. THE INSTITUTE. j A History of Kecent Financial Legisla- ' lion a Study Today. j In the history class today, led by Prof, i Acker man, there were discussed the silver bills of 1870, 1873 and IS78. The I historical facts merely were reviewed, ! entirely apart from a partisan stand-! point, which would not have been tol- j era ted. This discussion consumed most j of the time. The text was from Thomas' , history, an advanced work better suited j For tomor The Missis- Bales His Own Wool. Mr. J. H. Sherar is in the city. . A art of his wool clip has already arrived and the rest is on the way. Mr. Sberar's wool can easily be told from all the rest as it lays on the D. P. & A. N. ware house platform. It has been baled and bound with iron straps. The device for doinz this is Mr. Sherar's own invention,. All his wool is now baled oei'ore leaving the ranch. In these days wheu it re quires the most rigid economy for a wool raiser to market his wool without loss, any invention which will reduce ex penses should be hailed, with satisfac tion. Besides reducing bulk, the chief advantage in baled, wool is that the transportation rates are much less than upon bags. - ... " Keal Estate Transfers. Priscilla and W. P. Watson to W. H.
