Latest Story of Schilling's
Disappearance Points to His
Having Gone There.
C. W. STINGER APPOINTED
HIS SUCCESSOR AS AGENT.
New KJan Is Well Known in Portland
Has Had Long Experience in
Railway Work and Will Undoubt
edly Fill the Office Satisfactorily.
Portland, July 3. Charles W. Stin
ger has been appointed city ticket
agent of the Harriman lines, vice Vic
tor Schilling, disappeared.
Mr. Stinger was formerly cashier
and assistant city ticket and passen
ger agent for the Southern Pacific in
this city before that office was merg
ed, together with that of the Union
Pacific and the Oregon Short Line,
with the 0. R. & N. company. He is
entirely competent and Is certainly
next in the direct line of succession.
He Is a very competent man.
Victor A. Schilling's disappearance
still continues to stir up Railroad
Row, and the general public is fully
as much interested as are the miss
ing man's late associates.
A new story is afloat which at
tempts to point out where Schilling
may have gone. It is rumored that
he had made up his mind to pay Chi
na a visit It is pointed out that he
left Portland for Spokane on June 21.
He was last seen at Spokane. It 1b
known that he made a berth reser
vation for himself from Spokane to
Seattle via the Great Northern. The
train of that line went out from Spo
kane te Seattle Sunday night, June
22. Since then Schilling has not
been seen. The theory now advanced
Is that he actually did go to Seattle,
and that he may have taken a steam
r from there to Victoria, B. C. The
object of so doing, it is shown, was
to have made connection.

only give temporary relief, and the
