over tho typographical difficulties in
the Bee- office took on a now phaso to

whom they charge with unlawfully

The proprietors say they have no

intimidate their patrons, and tho latter
they will not submit to.
Probably for the first time this
question of the right to boycott will

Tacoma, Oct. 22. New develop

is the real murderer of young Crosby.
The general impression i3 that this
will result in tho release of Hoyt aud
Stowe, now serving sentences at

The above dispatch came too late
last night to see Chief of Police Barry,
who, it is reported,, has done some
work on the case, but error has evi
dently been made in regard to the
name of the suspected party, as there
is no one in the county jail booked
under tho name of Hildebrand. About
six weeks ago five men, namely: Doc,
Bute and Fred Whitfield, wero ar
rested for robbing tho cabins of locat
ors in the Nchalcm valley and along
the Young's and Lewis and Clark riv
ers. At that time it was intimated
that one of the quintette was suspected
of knowing something about tho mur
der of Crosby at Tacoma, but nothing
developed in regard to tho promised
It is probable that now develop
ments have como to light Chief Bar

Chief of Police Barry of Astoria lias

that ho thonsht thev might be tho mur
