ffiE EXCELLENCE CF SYBUP OF FIGS
Is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, but also .
to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the California Fio Syrup
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured
by the California Fio Syrup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding' the worthless
imitations manufactured by other pa
ties. . The high standing of the Cali
fornia Fio Sykup Co. with the medi
cal profession, and the satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. It is
far in advance of all other laxatives,
as it acts on the kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating or weaken
ing them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial
effects, please remember the name of

One, the Hoodooed "Fifty-Eight" is the
Same Car Which Ran Off a Bridge
Nearly two Years Ago Within a
Short Distance of the Scene of the
Present Accident, and When Sev
eral Lives Were lost.
Portland, Dec. 23. At 8:15 o'clock
this morning car No. 58 east-bound, and
car No. 72 west-bound, on theMt. Tabor
division of the City & Suburban Bail-
way Company's lines, came into heavy
collision on the treetle over the elough
at East Morrison- and East Eighth
It is a curious coincidence that the ac
dent took place on the exact spot where
a car ran off the bridge just a year ago
when a number of lives were lost, and
that the car that is most injured this
time, No. 58, is the one that was con
cerned in the previous accident.
The person most seriously injured to
day Is Henry W. Prettyman, of Mt Ta
bor, Dr. A. C. Panton, who attended
him, says that the mugcles of the neck
are badly wrenched, and that he suffered
considerable from getting chilled on the
way to his home.-.
James S. Boyles, a' tinner, living at
690 East Alder, was considerably bruised
and shaken up, and was taken to the
Good Samaritan hospital. After an ex
amination showed that he was not ser
iously injured and a plaster, was placed
on hia side be left that institution un
Mies Octavia S. Drake, a teacher in
the Mt. Tabor school, was cut under the
shoulder, and although the wound was
painful and bled profusely, it is not con
sidered serious. Her clothes were torn
badly, and she was bruised more or
lees. . .
An unknown man eat on the sidewalk
groaning for some time after the colli
sion, but left without anyone learning
who he was. It is thought that he
could not have been eo very badly in
jured. It was a foggy and frosty morning, re
calling that morning four years ago
when a car of the East End Kail way Co.
ran off the Madison bridge with fearful
loss of life. The ear that was coming tow-
ard town was well loaded. A fair rate
of speed had been maintained all the
way from Mt. Tabor, and at fcunnyside
a car was met on the siogle track. Some
discussion arose between the motormen
as to which should so back to the switch
and the down-bound motorman insisted
on his rights, compelling the otaer car
to go back.
From the top of the incline at East
Twelfth street a fast rate of speed was
maintained, the motorman keeping his
gong sounding constantly, so as to warn
the motorman of any approaching car.
When almost at the foot of the incline
the other car was heard coming, and all
on the platform except the motorman
jumped, as a collision was seen to be in
evitable. ' The motorman of the other
car had already seen the danger, and re
versed his car and jumped, but . before
the current had time to take effect the
cars came together with a terrible crash,
which was heard for blocks.
The passengers on the down car were
thrown in a heap in the front end of the
car, and though shaken up, were unin
jured. The down car was not badly
wrecked, but the other was driven half
ofTits trucks, the windows were demol
ished and the front platform was
wrecked. If the motorman of that car
had not jumped he would probably have

He Becomes Ranking Officer of the Navy
On December 25th, on the Ritire
ment of Bunce.
New York, Dec. 22. The press save
On Christmas day Rear-Admiral Dewey
will become the ranking officer in active
service of the United States navy, Kear-
Admiral Bunce, commandant of the
navy yard, now holds that place, but as
he has reached the age limit, he will,
while still remaining commandant of
the yard until his successor there is ap
pointed, be officially retired.
When the order from Washington
reached Rear-Admiral Bunce that be
continue in command in the yard until
relieved by the appointment of his suc
cessor, it created a great deal of goesip
in the navy yard club and among the
officers of the ships.
A few days ago, although Rear-Ad
miral Schley had asked for sea duty,
and it was generally believed that he
would command the squadron of the
European station, unofficial information
came from Washington that he would be
named as commandant of the New York
yard, but now it is believed among the
officers in the yard that the officials in
Washington have decided to wait the
arrival of Bear-Admiral Sampson, at
present on bis way home, from Cuba,
before definitely determining upon the
more important assignments made nec
essary by the retirement of Bear-Ad

Train Broke in Two.
Medford, Or., Dec. 22. Northbound
freight train No. 29 was badly wrecked
.in the Medford yard this morning at
about four o'clock. The train broke in
two about six miles south of here, on a
heavy down grade. The engine with
several cars had just pulled into the sta
tion and stopped when the loose cars
crashed into them, demolishing' seven
cars and jamming the wrecks of five
cars into a space of 20 feet, and pilling
the trucks on top of one another. None
of the crew knew the train had parted
until the crash came. Luckily no one
was hurt. Trains have been 'able to
paBS on the sidetrack without delay. A
wrecking crew was sent here from Ash
land, and the track was cleared late this

IN THE PLANS
The Scheme Will Be Completed By the
First of the Year.
Washington, Dec. 22. The war de
partment has not yet made definite
plans for the muster-out of 50,000 vol
unteers, which waa decided on at the
cabinet meeting yesterday, but It is un
derstood that work will be pretty well
mapped out by the first of the year. The
completion of the muster-out will de
pend on whether the department adopt
the plan of three-months' furlough or
immediate discharge, with two months'
extra'pay, as suggested by Congressman
Hull. - It has been practically decided to
muster out all the volunteers in' the
Philippines as fast as they can be re
placed with regulars, so as not to ham
per the military administration. of the
island. Following the discharge of the
regiments of the Philippine stations it
is understood the volunteer troops in
the West Indies will be mustered out.

Was Innocent Man Hanged?
Long Creek, Dec. 22. A report now
in circulation in this section that
Frank Powers, a convict at Salem, re
cently confessed on hi death bed to
haying murdered Deputy Sheriff Lock
wood, at Canyon City several years ago,
is discredited here. The report origi
nated in Malheur county, but does not
seem to come from reliable authority.
At the time of the murder of Lock wood
a man maned McGinnis was a prisoner
in the county jail. While Lock wood was
attending to bis duties he waaahot and
killed, and McGinnis escaped. McGin
nis was shortly afterward captured, tried
and convicted of murder, and subse
quently hanged, protesting his inno
cence. If the alleged confession is cor
rect, and Frank Powers did the killing,
McGinnis suffered the death penalty for
a crime he never committed. -
