A Don Tbaxsactiou. In Justice Bush
wilor's court yesterday, William Kelley
was tried for the larceuj' of a dog from
Jas. Cook. It appears that Cook sent tho
dog to Kelley from Astoria, in tba care of
ono Roberts some time ago. with instruc
tions to deliver it to one Sophie Smith.
Kolley, instead of doing this, however,
kept the canine, and about a month
afterwards sold it to Jake Brenner for
$20. Cook arrived in town a few days
ago, and learning what disposition had
been made of the animal, had Kelley
arrested for stealing it. Kelley claimed
that tho dog had been sent to him as a
present, but Judge Bushwiler seemed in
clined to doubt his statement, and fined
him 2Ti. sending him to jail for twelve
days in default of payment Cook now

Police Couet. The benches in the
court room yesterday afternoon were
filled, and when the judge unrolled a
weighty legal volume, F. D. Winton
arose and said that in reference to the
two prisoners, Munson and Sawmiller-,
the city had 110 jurisdiction. Police
Officer Steabb had arrested them and
they had previously been arraigned on a
charge of taking a prisoner away from
au officer, but according to the law as
laid down by the city attorney such
action constitutes a state offense and does
not come under the jurisdiction of crim
inal procedure. Tho aforesaid gentlemen
were told that their road to freedom was
. unobstructed, and as tho deputy district
attorney did not apprehend them, they
arose and went hence. The cases of
Robert Wihlgren and John Wiseman,
charged with keeping bawdv houses,
were continued till to-day. Max Curtis
plead not guiltj' to a charge of drunken
ness preferred against him, but the ar
resting policeman's story was so strongly
against the plea that the judge imposed a
fine of $10.

'fan You Summon Spirit", from the Va.tj"
With many others The Astoeian's thea
trical reporter sat on x cushioned fa
tetdl at Liberty hall last evening and saw
the clever doings of C. H. and Orilla
Read. Without anj particular reference
to the performance which was good of
the kind, it started a train of thought
in the aforesaid reporter's mind.
It a grand causeway could bo construc
ted between the earth and the far off un
known country called "the Better Land,"
what shoals of peojde would be forever
traveling up and down on tours of in
spection. Human nature, lacking such a
bridge, insists on a fruitless search after
means of communication with the super
natural. For good or for evil, for selfish
or for unselfish reasons, myriads of men
and women find an awful fascination
in trying to solve the great nystery.
One man investigates because he is an
unboliever in immortality and wishes to
believe. Another that he may become a
medium and make monej. A third be
cause ho longs to speak with a much
loved daughter or wife who has gone be
fore. And so it goes on. And so year
after year, clairvoyants, fortune, tellers,
spiritual mediums, all find clients and
followers in all places. That thess peo
ple die and suffer misfortunes, poverty
and disease themselves which tiioy are
totally unable to avert does not discon
cert tin peopl- who dock to them, be
lieving in their ability to forewarn and
forearm others against coming diffi
culties and sorrow. There is no estima
ting the influence physical, mental and
moral, exerted by some of those sooth
sayers. Speaking some time ago of one
of his patients, a woman of highly sensi
tive imaginative organization, a physi
cian said: "She is dying by inches, from
tho effecLsof a single interview with a
clairvoyant."' The individual whom she
consulted went into a trance and in the
midst of horrible contortions and spasms
told her that he saw a snake writh
ing and twisting in her stomach.
Her ill-health dates from this in
tervicw, and from being n healthy person
she has become a confirmed invalid. She
fancies she feels distinctly the motions of
this reptile. She is constantly nauseated
and has become dangerously nervous.
Neither arguments nor raillery affect her
belief in the least. This man succeeded
in one interview in making her have faith
in him. What many a good man might
have failed to command from her after
working for yetrs. he compassed in one
fatal half hour. The power of such men
and his confreres is due in a great meas
ure to the influence of a stronger will
over a weaker one. Many of them have
a certain measure of dramatic talents by
the help of which they cm make impossi
bilities seem possible. Among these in
our memory is a pretty little woman who
goes into trances and calls herself a clair
voyant, although she admits quite frankly
that she does not know what she is.
Years ago. when a little child, she recol
lects clasping her arms around a swing
and looking dreamily into space until it
seemed to her as if her soul was dissev
ered from her body and she had visions.
They were not of her own future, but of
the future of others, and when she
awakened from this dream or trance
oulv the latter part of the closing chapter
was remembered. Her father, a stern,
old Puritan, was at a loss to know how to
eiorcise this devil, for whippings and
punDflShutei.ts were of iio avail. She

her out of what th-.-y called '"Vi eh uon
acus?." At eightef 11, having a hwirt like
other women, she foil in love, inarried
and becanip the mother of ti little
children. With busy hands and a happy
life the old pernicious tendency towards
dreams ami virions wits well nigh
forgotten. No trance warned her of
the approach of that unrt'.enting
visitor, death! He came as t- tii most
ordinary mortals. unexpect -J il unan
nounced. On a'rajatjk,niiit'k- t.o stood
on the irch of ber little boast, with fcer
baby crowing in her arias, four men ap
I proached with a horrible burden, the in
animate form of her husband mangled
by machinery. Then came sickness, pov
erty, debt, and despair. Her children
were looking at her with hungry eyes.
She grew wild and unlike herself and
was beset anew by visions and dreams.
She saw visions of the future happiness
of her friends and neighbors, until final
ly she told a credulous woman one day
her fortune. Then another cam e and an
other, and presently tho desolate widow
became known asaclain03Tant a woman
with a power to divine the future. She
went to sleep with rigid muscles and star
ing eyes and saw people's lives unrolled
before hor as an immense panorama. Sho
tom ner visitors how mends professing
to love them, really were implacable ene
mies. Sho told of comins sickness, of
good fortune for those who invested
money in such and such a manner. And
all this was given forth with such burn
ing and rapid intensity that she never
failed to convince. It is not too much
to say that whole lives have been ordered
ana altered upon this woman's words.
Friends have been separated and brought
together; wives and husbands have been
rendered happy or miserable; monev
made or lost; residences changed; busf-1
ness put aside; joanieys taken from ono
part of the country to another. The
woman herself, meanwhile, made money,
cuuraa-u uei cuuunia, Hft up uer son 111
a lucrative business, and owned her first
little home for rest and recreation. Bat
while she had been busy averting the mis
fortunes of others, had she kept her own
sky free from clouds? Ah, no! The light
of her life went out. Her beautiful, ac
complished, cherished daughter died.
Neither trance, nor vision, nor spell, nor
dream warned her, and yet it was no ill
ness, but an accident which, could it
havo been foreseen, might easily have
been prevented. Tho girl went to ride,
the horse took fright, and sho died of in
ternal injuries. If spirits come to her
mother and tell hor of the destinv of
others, are they not cruel devils which
hover around and leave her powerless to
protect her own?
All there is to it is that sho is r. highly
strung, overwrought woman, who needs
treatment by a competent specialist in
her own case. She calls tho people who
come to see her. appropriately enough,
"her patients." One lady lias been to see
beronce a week for eleven years. She
limits herself to three trances" a day and
she charges $5 for each trance. 'Then
she tells fortunes by cards, and, in one
way and another makes from $lf to $20
a da3 Even her own sorrowful experi
ences, which she relates quite unre
servedly and pathetically, do not deter
tho people who consult her from return
ing again and again. Reason is not the
strong point with those who find it possi
ble to believe in divinations. They will
believe implicitly a lortune-teller who
says: "Unless you take the greatest care
a terrible sickness will overtake yon."
Any observant person might make the
same remark, but without avail. It is
the imperious positiveness which com
mands their clients and their plausibility.
Something is due also to their general
cleverness and their occasionally shrewd
guesswork. They are students, and suc
cessful students too. of the weaknesses
of human nature, which are so pitifully
revealed to them.' As one said, when
misfortunes visited her: "I believe m

A former largo holder of Oregon Trans

friendship is said to have cost $iX),000,
"When Heinrich Hilgard was a New
York reporter he is said to have been al
most communistic in his democracy.
Nothing pleased him more than to lie
able to puncture the epidermis of a mill
ionaire. When his salary reached SjOa

Once in a while a board bill would em
barrass him. but he did not let iuch mai -ters
"Some years after the war he returned
to Germany. About the same time the
panic occurred, and the bottom fell out
of all railroad securities. The foreign
holders of Kansas Pacific stocks and
bonds wero in despair. Their property
had become valueless, and they were
helpless. Mr. Hilgard appeared as a de
liverer. Ho sought these persons out and
told them that ho possessed information
and an idea which would restore their
property to its former value. To such
good effect did he tcik that they appoint
ed him their agent. He came" to Amer
ica again and succeeded so well that whin
he sold tho roud to Jay Gould he made
$300,000 out of the operation. This was
his start. He then came to Oregon and
soon controlled the phenomenal Oregon
Railway and Navigation Company. From
this a new company was evolved "and the
new oiupany had a now president with a
new name. He became Henry Villard.
This company has stood the most re
markable stock-watering on record.
"Mr. Villard invented tho blind pool.
He called upon all his friends to enter.
Having blind confidence, we did. We
subscribed 31,000,000. He was our
trustee. The Oregon and Transconti
nental Company was formed. It has
been the receptacle for the loads which
Mr. Villard and others accumulated in
their speculations. If the deal was profit
able it was Villard's, if unprofitable the
company's. Into it he emptied his Rail
way and Navigation, stock around 1."j0.
Of courso the compatry could not stand
"The heaviest losers are his friends,
those who had confidence in him. Mr.
Billings has lost hundreds of thousands.
D. O. Mills, Geo. M.PulIniau, Horace Por
ter, A. H. Barnej-, B. P. Cheney. W. K.
VauderbUt, C. B. Wright havo all lost.
They are among the worst hurt and can
stand it. Somo of the others cannot.
"Mr. Villard has scarce an' of the
stock of anj" of these companies left. His
name appears on the Northern Pacific
books for a small amount bought for tho
occasion, but most of this has since been
sold. He has not lost."
"Five years ago he had hard work to
pay his office rent in the Continental
building. To-day he is worth ten mil
lions. He has a 1 wo-million-dollar house,
and a two-milliou-dollar claim against
tho Oregon and Transcontinental com
pany among other things. A little while
ago he transferred a half million dollars
in government bonds to his wife. I con

Mr. V. on the 17th, moved into his
wonderful New York palace. This tri
umph of architecture has been described
at length in Tnc AsroniAJi. It is mod

after a Roman palace, and consists really
of six houses. Mr. V. himself occupying
one entire wing, which is soparated
from the other by an enclosed
court. In height it is four
stories above tho basement. The

designed by St Gaudiens. It alone will
cost $00,000 when completed. Tho music
room, at the extremity of tho hall, is tho
most costly room in the mansion. It
occupies two stories, and is a miniature
theatre. The gallery for tho musicians
is after a gallery in the Fontainebloau
palace. It will probably bo two 3'oars
before the finishing touches can be put
on this room and the decorations are ex
pected to cost $75,000. None of the work
has been done by contract, so that the
exact expense has been unknown, but it
is stated by the architects that the struc
ture finished would cost fully a million
dollars unfurnished. Over nine hundred
thousand dollars had been expended
somo time ago. High wages have been
paid for the most skilled workmen, the
Italian artists some of thorn demanding,
it is reported, $10,000 before coming to
For three weeks, furniture of tho most
sumptuous kind had been arriving.
Heinricb. has stated that the interior
decorations and furnishing of his house
would cost nearly a million dollars.
Marcott & Co., of Paris, have manufac
tured the furniture. There are sets of
chairs which cost $500 apiece, on whoso
backs arc oil paintings of real merit.
It has cost ;S0,OQ0 to put this furniture
in place alone.
The main floor of the new house is not
3et completed. Workmen will be em
ployed on it all winter. Six artists
brought from Italy for the work are
decorating the music room and main
halt The labor is of the finest nature,
and the best of sculptors are employed on
the marblo work. Fifteen inferior work
men are doingtho less important work.
Heretofore Hileard has lived nfc his
Dobbs Ferry house, stopping at hotels
when remaining in town. The Dobbs
Ferry place cost him nearly a half mil
lion. The ground alone is worth 5.500
an acre. The decoration of one room,
mi. . j 1? f '
aone in gold, cost $50,twu. There he
lived in elegant style, keeping a stable of
twenty horses, and entertaining in a bo
coming manner. There was always a
retinue of servants about tho place, but
most of them have now been brought to
the new palace, the housekeeper being
left in charge at Dobbs Ferry. It is un
derstood that in the summer, when not
at the watering places, he will occupv
this country seat.

prospects of the Canadian Pacific, tho
Victoria Post gives tho following facts:
"The road is to run from Montreal to
Port Moody, just above Victoria, in
British Columbia. The distance is 2SG9
miles from ship to ship. That is about
425 miles less than the distance by way
of the C. P. and U. P. and Chicago from
San Francisco to New York. This dis
tance is divided into five sections, as fol
