All causes of the state vs. H. C.
Paige, indictejl in Umatilla coun
ty, on three se'perate counts of
the larceny of jjreenbacks, gold
dust and gold coin, have been dis
missed. It -will be remembered
that almost a year ago Wells,
Fargo & Conirmnys treasure box
was robbed on the stage running
between Pendleton and Umatilla,
of a lot of money and gold dust,
aggregating in the neighborhood
of 1,S00, and soon after Paige
was arrested in Portland for the
rebberv. The circumstances of
the theft, as published at that time
were as follews: As the driver of
.the stage from Pendleton to Uma
tilla readied the latter place and
delivered the express box to the
agent it was found to be empty,
although properly locked. "Way
bills, money, valuables, etc., which
the agent had put into the box the
evening before had mysteriously
disappeared. Paige, who at one
time had been connected with
"Wells, Fargo & Co. as their agent
was supposed to be well acquinted
with their locks, was a passenger
at that time, and suspicion pointed
strongly to him as the guilty party.
He was accordingly arrested, and
through some technicality his
trial has been put off until the
present term. And now he is
They arc having a deadly

Mr. Villard is now about to
organize the Oregon Trans-conti

What havoc would follow in the
"wake of this business boom should
a reaction take place in the wild
speculations of the past ten months
in railroad and other stocks. Such
dangers does exist. Great busi
uess depression and man' failures
would be certain to result. The
press of the east aie discussing the
question very seriously. 11 the
reaction should set in before As

Commenting upon the purchase
by the Panama Canal company of
a majority of the stock of the Pan
ama Railroad company; at the
rate of $250 a share, but estimat
ing the assets of the road to be
retained by the company, the
actual price will reach $205; the
Washington Post says: "Should
the other shareholder sell on the
same terms as Mr. Tenor W. Park,
the principal owner of the road,
the company, whose capital is only
$7,000,000, will get for their stock
in the aggregate about $20,050,
000. This trade shows that De
Lesscps and his associates have a
plenty of money and a plenty of
confidence both, and if they never
build the canal, they will, at least,
have a railroad which has hitherto
been paying twenty per cent, div
dends. It will now be in order
for Senator Burnside to amend his
Monroe doctrine resolution so as to
cover railroads as we as canals."
The New York Evening Tele
gram boasts of the wonderful
rapidity with which the success of
Iroquois in the Derby race was
flashed across the ocean to that
journal, and placed before the
public. The Telegram, which is
regarded as the evening edition of
the New York Herald, had a tele
graph instrument on the grand
stand, and had made perfect ar
rangements for the rapid trans
mission of the result. How suc
cessfully this was done, the Tele
gram sums up as follews: "Horses
got away at 30:21.5, New York
time. Iroquois passed the win
ning post at 30:23.55, New York
time. Result reached New York
at 10:24 New York time. Time
occupied in transmission, 5 sec
onds." Of course the dispatch was
very brief, perhaps simply sending:
Iroquois winner. Nevertheless,
the feat was a marvelous one.

While the Emperor of Russia is
fortifying himself, and watching
for poison in his coffee or bomb
shells in his bed-room, that other
monarch, King Ivalakaua, is on
the bounding billows of the Indian
ocean, heading towards Europe
and the United States for a years

wears a crown" will hardly apply
to the royal ruler of the Sandwich
islands, excepting of a morning

W hue an Italian barber at
Buenos Ayres was shaving a
customer recently a hot political
dispute arose between the shaver
and the shaved, the former being
a republican and the latter an
ardent advocate of the temporal
power of the Pope. Words ran
high and at last the barber lost
his temper and with a ferocious
twist of the razor cut off one of
the cheeks of his customer, who
was very fat and afforded a splen

The Washington Post, demo
cratic, says: "This beautiful city
of Washington is a decoration cer
emony in itself." Yet The Post,
with every other democratic paper
in the country, has repeatedly
called Governor Shepherd a thief
and a robber, for making Wash
ington what it is, and cannot even
now allude to that gentleman with
out an insulting epithet.
The Republican lies and lies
most stupidly. The Post has
never said an unkind word of Gov
ernor Shepherd. Rather, it has
praised him for his good work in
"Washington, time and again, and
without stint always.

Built of Gold
But few people arc aware of the
fact that the facings of the high
school house are constructed of gold
bearing stone, but it is an actual
truth that is testified to by Mr.
King, the architect, as well as
those who did the masonry. It
was obtained from a mountain near
Granite, upon which several gold
mines have been operated with
much profit, lu antiquity there
was extravagance visible in all the
architectural efforts, but to witness
the repetition of those times in
this era, and in the carbonate me
tropolis, is something indeed
startling. It is a fact, however.
that the facings of the institution
mentioned are made of the gold
rock, and it can be proven. During
the work of erection, and when the
masons had the stone in hand and
were dressing it, this was dis
covered. Upon one occasion they
were sawing a huge block of the
material in which a streak of gold
about the size of a knife blade was
discovered by the workmen. It
created quite a sensation at the
time, but nothing particular was
said of it on the outside, and the
work was continued. Our streets
are paved with silver, or slag con
taining the mineral; and it is prob
able that a handful of dirt from
most any place would assay from
one to ten ounces. This report
was regarded as somewhat fabu
lous, but when the fact goes out
that the school house is built of
gold, it will indeed provoke a
