bold at 3 o'clock this morning, hoping

Colonel Hashes learned of tbe plan
and informed the Republicans tbat tbev
had nothing to fear from him. A little
later he was summoned to the governor's
office, tbe plan laid before him and be
was ordered to carry it out. He pos
itively refused, declaring tbat he was
there as a peace officer; tbat the Repub
Mean house was tbe only legal one, and
he would not interfere with it.
Tbe governor threatened to relieve
him. He retorted tbat tbe - regiment
would aiscand at tne same time.
This piece of insubordination, together
with the fact that nearly all tbe command
ers of the state troops are Republicans,
about decided the governor to place no
more reliance on tbe militia. . Among
tne arrivals today were about 400 armed
Republicans and 100 armed Populists.

about $50,000 ot a fund, not a cent of
which can be secured by those wbo con
tributed it, and it is openly charged that
ii is about to be used in the interests of
tbe Peoples party, the president of tbe
State Alliance,as well aa its secretary and
a business agent, being extreme members
of tbat party. A receiver will be asked
for immediately. Most of tbe fund was
contributed by persons not now Alliance
men. Tbe bill was introduced to rechar-
tcr tbe Alliance, to be recognized solely
in tbe farmers interest. The officers of

members denying tbat the business fund
is to be devoted to political purposes.

of the girl, and he at once proceeded to
redress the wrong that bad been done her.

One Way to Get a County Seat.
Tuesday afternoon of last week 150 men
from the town of South Bend, Wash., on
Shoalwater bay, piled aboard three steamers
and proceeded to Oysterville, the county
seat of Pacific county, forcibly took pos
session of all papers, books and money in
the offices of tbe clerk, auditor and sheriff
and prosecuting attorney and carried tbem
down to the steamers. They tried to .open
the vault of tbe auditor a omce to secure
the ballots of the recent election,-but the
Oysterville auditor drove them out with a
crowbar. In the jail was one lone prisoner,
hut they "did not think be belonged to the
sheriff's outfit and left bim. Then packing
this stun in some fash boxes they trans
ported thi-m to South Bend and there set
up the county seat. The action of this mob
was due to the recent decision of the su
preme court,' iu which it was decided that
the last election on the proposition to move
the county seat was legal.. Warrants have
been issued for toe arrest of the leaders of
the mob. .

Iu giving an account of the burning of
Mr. Alex McDonald's barn, near Scio two
weeks ago, the cause of tbe fire was given
as unknown. A dispatch in Tuesday's Ore-

tery. It says that AndiewL. Arnold, liv
ing near Scio, was arrested for firing Alex
Mc Donald'a barn two weeks ago, and con
fessed to the deed, saying he did so because
Miss Til he, McDonald a daughter, would
not accept him as a suitor for . her band.
Tracks in the snow,-leatliug to the barn,
hrdt caused Arnold to be suspicioned. Ar
i.old is a man ot property and bus given
McDonald a note secured by a mortgage for
$3500 to reimburse him for the loss. The
community do not attach so much i lame to
Arnold aa tbey otherwise would, as he is re
warded as being a little off, and many are
di posed to regard his barn burning freak as
that of a crazy man. Arnold is in the cus
tody of Deputy Sheriff J. A. Bilyeu. .

Chief Wolf, the wealthy Snake Indian'
who is now in Washington. D. C, trying to
get the president to refund the money he
waa compelled to pay for taxes on his large
band of horse, waa robbed of $8000 the
other day. Abont a month ago he sent to
bis son at Pasco for $400 and told the
young man that the money was buried near
his borne at Fishhook bend, on the Snake
river. When tbe boy went to tbe place
and due up the box, supposed to contain
about $8000the money was all gone, and
nothing but the empty box remained.
Young Wolf, when he found that the money
was gone, rushed to town as soon as possi
ble to tell of his father's loss. The facts in
the case were at once sent to Wolf at Wash
ington, but as yet he has apparently paid
no attention to the loss. Old Wolf has
spent nearly $3000 to get $240 of taxes n

Mineowners fear tbat a general closing
down wjll lead to a repetition of tbe la
bor riots of last July..
The legislature recently parsed a law
making it virtually impossible for tbe
sheriff to summon a posse, and the state
military organization is about to go to
pieces, lbese two circumstances, tbe
mineowners think, will give tbe union
men control, if tbe laborers are inclined
to be obstrepereous.

effect upon tbn silver and lead markets,
