Seattle, Oct. 21 The remarkable
number of burglaries reported in this
city, as well as those known but not re
ported to the police, has caused a gentle
man who has kept a record of the cases
noted in the newspapers, to state that
already this month 103 cases of house
breaking have been made public.
"As near as I can ascertain," he con
tinued, "it cost 700U to run the police
1ono.rt.mnnt last month, and there
were only $1700 in fines collected. I
feel confident, in fact I know, that there
have been several more cases of house
breaking than reported by the newspa
pers. Then there is the boldest kind of
robbery going on, apparently with little
interference on the part of the police.
"Why, only a few days ago a villain went
into a store and held up the owner at
the point of a revolver, and would have
accomplished his object, or maybe com
mitted murder, had not a young woman
in the store called for help and the only
thing the man was punished for was for
carrying a concealed weapon. I tell you
that it is a scandalous state of affairs,
and will seriously damage tho reputa
tion of Seattle if allowed to go on much

much larger than it used to be, and yet
the public safety is not so well looked
after. It is a matter that will bear look

of the criminal claBS having too much to
say about political allairs. Let us nave

of house breaking and highway robbery,
as well as how much revenue is obtained
from the degraded houses and find out

decrease of 50 compared with the pre
ceding year. Of the accidents, 15 re
sulted from collisions, and 102 of the
lives were lost by drowning. Ot tne
number of lives lost 05 were passengers

substantial solace for the injury done to

Mr. Arbuckle did not relish the verdict

The Forsaken Husband Three HourB
Behind His Fleeing Wife.
Spokane Falls, Oct. 22 P. Kurso, a
resident of Portland, Or., was in Spokane
yesterday looking for his faithless wife,
who stole $5000 from him and eloped
with a man named Webener, colonel of
United States troops at Vancouver.
Four years ago Kurse returned one day
to his home in Portland and found there
a visitor. Colonel Webener of the Van
couver government troops. Kurse knew
the colonel, for he naa been a frequent
visitor, but had been previously forbid
den to enter the house, finding the in
terdicted colonel Kurse kicked him out,
sword, epaulets and all.
Ever since tne gallant cavalier swore
revenge. Since then Xruse never saw
the military interloper. A lew weeks
ago. at the solicitation of his wife.
whom he long ago had forgiven for her
fondness for the officer, Kurse sold out
his business with the intention of retir
ing. Last Thursday he came home and
found hia wife gone and his private box
robbed of $5000.
Investigation showed that the officer
was also missing. The two came to Spo
kane and registered at the Eagle house
as Mr. and Mrs. Reeble. Kurse arrived
here today on their track to find that he
had missed them by three hours. They
have gone to V ictoria.

The play will open with a splendid
mounted tank scene, in which the tank
will cover the entire stage and be fairly
overflowing with real water. High
above will be a real suspension bridge.
A real tug will be standing at the back
of the tank, and a couple of real barrels
and a real silk hat, lost by a real Brook
lyn man, will float past. Suddenly Mr.
Steve Brodie will appear on the bridge
and leap into the tank, Mr. Brodie hav
ing been secured as"rirst jumping gent"
as Mr. Hennessey puts it. The engag
ing of Mr. Brodie as leading jumper, Mr.
Hennessey, with unpardonable pride,
says he considers remarkable manager
ial enterprise. He trusts that it will
not materially reduce the receipts of
Booth and Modjeska in their coining
tour. Mr. Hennessey desires that art
maybe successful in whatever form it
may appear. ,
The other acts will follow m rapid
succession. A smaller tank will be in
troduced in the third, in which some
person from the audience who really
wants to commit suicide will leap and be
rescued by a real policeman. There will
be a street scene in the second act in
which a real street sweeping machine
will be introduced. It will be the
last appearance of the sweeper on any
stage, though it has been rehearsing for
There will be a real letter box fast
ened to a lamp-post, and the audience
can step forward and mail their letters,
as a real letter carrier will come along
and get them in the last act. A real
street car will have a collision with a
real ash cart and the drivers will in
dulge in a real fight. A man who has
swung a bunch of shoe laces at Broad
way and Fourteenth streets for two
years will appear as a real shoe-string
vender. He will be blown up by a real
dynamite explosion in the fourth act.
There will be a real cocking main and a
real Nevada stage robber will hold up"
At the end of tbe Inst act there will be
a real fire scene. A man now having a
ten years' term for arson at Sing Sing,
but whose sentence will expire before
the first night, will come in and in full
view of the audience set the theater on
fire. It will be burned to the ground,
and as the delighted spectators escape
their pockets will be picked by real
pickpockets, those having orchestra
seats being sandbagged in the lobby,
wlnlo patrons ol the uress cucle anu Dai
cony will be run over by real fire engines
coming to attempt to subdue tne conna-
gration. The cost of procuring a new
theater for each performance will be
great, but Manager Spike is not a man
to lalter at expense. Ihe only lear we
havo for the success of this plav is that
it does not present enough novelty, it
is hoped, however, that after Mr. Hen
nessey lias given the subject more
thought he will be able to impart more
thrilling realism to the prospective play
than is now given out.

in her arms and smothered the flames.
In doing this Mrs. Cohrs was badly

summoned and did everything in their
power, but at the hour stated the little
girl died from the efl'ects of her injuries.
BIG CANADIAN TRUST.
DISTRESS IN IRELAND.
Guardians of the Peaoe Unable to Fur
London, Oct. 22 Telegrams just re
ceived from Skibbereen, county Cork,
state that a heartrending scene was
witnessed at the meeting today of the
board of guardians for the poor law union
of Schull. Believing that the guardians
had the power of relieving distress caused
by failure of the potato crop, a crowd of
forlorn farmers and laborers flocked
into the little town from Mizzenheadand
Crookhaven. Some of the guardians
were deeply affected, but they were com
pelled to ten tneir wretched petitioners
that the law did not permit the board to
grant relief in the form demanded, al
though if any of them claimed shelter
and food, room in the workhouse might

The Flour Mills of Canada Controlled
by a Syndicate.
Montreal, Quebec, Oct. 21 An En
glish syndicate has nearly finished nego
tiations for the purchase of almost the
whole of the flouring industry of Canada.
It will combine tho Ogilvie mills, which
are the most extensive in the dominion,
Lake of the Woods Company's mills and
the Hudson Bay millB.
The purchase price will be about
$3,000,000, $2,000,000 of which will go to
Messrs. Ogilvie & Co., and the remain
ing million to the other companies. En
glish accountants have been here mak
ing a thorough examination of the books
of the various mills, and the properties
have been valued by experts.
Within a fortnight the purchase will
be consummated. The board of direct
ors includes some of the beBt and
wealthiest Canadians, as well as repre
sentatives from London.
The mills will be under the manage
ment of William Ogilvie.
The output of the various mills is as
Ogilvie's, 5000 barrels per day; Lake
of the Woods, 1500 barrelB per day ; Hud
son Bay, 750 barrels per day.
Ihe only advantage ot the combine, it
is claimed, will be to put an end to the
competition of the companies, and the
consequent cutting of prices, from -
which it is estimated the profits ot the
companies have been affected this year
to tho extent of $1,000,000,000, but
others say this great trust is simply to
keep up the price oi nour.

terview relative to his recent visit to
Montana, and his observation of silver
mining in progress there, says: "As to
the prospects of silver mining and cur
rent production of our mines, I should
say that the ore product of the United
States is increasing. Certainly there is
great activity in all the mining camps
which I visited, and when one considers
that only a short time ago they were
getting only 90 cents an ounce for silver
and 33j cents a pound for lead, while to
day silver is w orth $1.10 an ounce and

raised ab libitum : thev must lie found,

of the New York Sun, who has just re

developed into a bloated being without
any ideas beyond satisfying his animal
appetites. He still talks of returning to
France, and it is quite possible that the
French government may grant him free
permission to do so, feeling assured that
lie is perfectly harmless and that his
presence will only excite ridicule.
