Prepared For an Expected
Drain on the Treasury.
ANOTHER BANK TO THE RESCUE
Farmer's Loan and Trust Company
Deposited $2,000,000 in Gold
-Thi Feeling is Hopeful.
New York, Sept. 3. It 'was quite evi
dent today that the Morgan-Belmont
syndicate expected another large drain
on the sub-treasury this week.
At the opening of business It was an
nounced that the Farmers' Loan and
Trust Company had deposited 2,OUO,000 in
the sub-treasury. This is the second fl
nanclal institution to come to the aid
of the syndicate. The first was the
American Exchange National Bank,
which deposited 8500,000 a week ago. At
that time It was said ai number of na
tional banks and financial institutions
which had been members of the bona
syndicate had agreed to aid Messrs. Mor
gan and Belmont in their efforts to keep
the spirit of the contract with the gov
ernment to maintain the gold reserve
against exports in every way possible.
A total of $1,100,000 was ordered during
the day for shipment and notwlthstand'
Ing the continued gold shipments the
feeling in financial circles concerning the
outlook was serene and 'hopeful. The
possibility of the $100,000,000 being en
croached upon as soon as the bond syn
dicate failed to continue to put gold into
the sub-treasury does not seem to be
considered. This is due to the expectation
that the movement of crops to Europe
will before long cause a plentiful supply
of commercial bills to be in circulation
and of necessity lower the rate of .ex
change to a figure which would practi
cally prohibit the shipment of gold.

The latest weather bureau circular says
concerning Oregon weather: "The smoke
has continued, though for tha pst three
days there lhas been much relief Ircm It.
The maximum temperature for the week
tanged from 61 to 86 degrees, the high'
est having been on Wednesday and the
lowest on Sunday, The 'minimum temper
ature ranged from 48 to 64 degrees. The
air was more sultry than it has been for
many weeks and it culminated in thunder
storms on Friday, tho SOth, since when
the temperature has fallen, the sky has
been overcast and occasional sprlnkCes
or rain lhave fallen. The total rainfall
has 'been one-quarter of an inch. The
current weather does not Indicate that
the rainy, season has commenced, tut
rather that long periods of dry weithr,
for this year, have now passed. The nor
mal rainfall for September is 1.60 inches
in the northern counties, and one inch
In the southern, which falls on from five
to eight days. Periods of warm, clear
weather will now occur beforo the regu
lar rainy season sets In."
'It Is a mistake, says the Baker City
Democrat, to Imagine that the factory at
Lynton is canning horse meat, as is gen
erally supposed. Not one has been put
on the market so far at this place, ana
the horses have ibeen butchered, the hides
saved and the meat cooked, dried and
ground up into fertilizing 'material. The
company has now 3,000 pounds ot meat
in pickle, which will he sent to Germany
and France. About 4000 to 6000 ot the
S'wltzler band the company has purchased
at ai cost of (2.00 per head; and have re
ceived several hundred of this lot. The
capacity of the works is about 65 head
a day, 46 horses and 10 colts. After the
anlmai! Is killed It is denuded of Its hide
by pulling It off. The hide is started In
places, and then jerked off by a wind
ing machine. This Is tanned into leather
and) usedi in the manufacture of boots
and shoes. The offal Is fed to hogs, and
this furnishes good food. Any one de
sirous of purchasing an animal may take
his choice for tlO; but our Informant says

A' little 6-year-old daughter of William
Branz, a (Prussian who Uvea on ai farm
six miles east of Salem' on the Sllverton
road, was the victim of a pitiful accldtnl
yesterday forenoon about 11 o'clock. Her
self and her little brother, aged g years,
together with ome other children, were
playing in the yard, the brother hav
ing an axe with Which he was cutting
some sticks. The little girl in some man
ner placed her right hand on the log,
unseen hy tho hoy, and received a blow
of the axe, iwhlch severed aCmost the
entire hand. The index linger Just in
front of the knuckle was severed almost
completely and the cut run obliquely
across the hand to the heel of the palm
leaving only a small section of the
fleshy .part of the hand holding the
momlber. The detracted parents, who
cannot talk English, started for town
with the child as soon as possible and
obtained medical assistance. The wound
was thoroughly cleansed of pieces of beno
and other foreign matter, the stump of
tho Index finger was properly drowsed
and the remainder of the hind was
fixed In place with several stitches to hold
It. The first thought was that amputiv
tlon would be necessary, but tho doctors
hope the hand can bo saved. Statesman
The condition of the Western Oregon
crops, accoKIIng to Mr. Payne's regular
weekly report, Is very favorable. He
says: "Hop-plcklng is In progress. Some
picking was done the tatter part of the
week, hut picking will not be general
until the middle of the present week. The
correspondents report the hops to be In
good condition; the smoky weather pre
vented the sin's rays from Injuring the
arms to any large extent. The burrs
are well formed, some being threa Inches
leng; lice are In many yards, but as a
rule no gleat damage has been done to
the hopa. The yards will he qulto thor
nughty picked, though In an occasional
yard, due to various causes, no picking
will be done; the cloudy, damp and show
ery weather has so far done no dimatre,
and none twVA occur unless tho adverse
weather should continue for a lengthy
period, and such is hardly probable. The
rains have caused some prunes to split
open, but no mat.-rial damage appears
to have been done. Prunc-drylng Is In
progress In a", sections, warm, dry
weather would be more favorable to the
fruit drying operation. Peaches and
Bartlett pears are ripening rapidly, and
large shipments of fruit are being nraae.
The first tralttfoad of Oregon fruit,
shipped East, left on the 28th of August;
It was mode up of peaches, pears, plums
and prunes. The rain has been beneflcl.il
to .corn. The potato crop has been In
lured by the long, dry period, but late
potatoes will be Improved by the rains.
Pasture are somewhat tmprovea, tnougn
the effect on the dairying Intereits Is
not as yet especially noticeable. The har
vest of cereals Is about over. Moat of the
thr?rhlng Is finished and the grain is
being hauled to the warehouses. The log
ger along the stream are now await
ing the rains, so that the streams may
rise and their logs be floated down. The
placer miner awaits the full rain so t$
to begin his mining. The farmer Is not
ready for the rain as yet, as th hops
and the fruit are to be gathered and the
cereals to be safety housed. Warm, clear
weather, with an absence of smoke, will
most likely prevail the latter part Of
the current week.

MAY HAVE A RECEIVER.
Southern Pacific Might Be Forced Under
San Francisco, Sept. S.-The possibility
at a receivership for the Southern Paci
fic Co. is the inference from testimony
given before the railroad cornmlsslonera
by G. L. Lansing, secretary and control
ler of the company, which is fighting the
proposed reduction ot rates.
The statement was guarded with quali
fying clauses and the possibility was set
forth ifi the remote future. In the
midst of his financial stateemnt Lansing
declared that the reduction in the net
Income of 1696 from that of 1893 was
32,276,000 and to this statement was at
tached a receivership Inference. The
question arose whether it was not due to
abnormal conditions and whether there
wouM not be a return to better condi
tions. He thought there would be a re
turn to better conditions, but If this
should not follow, then there would be a
critical time for the railroad company.
Of course the company could carry Its
Indebtedness for some time, but should
the present state of affairs continue,
eventually a reorganization through legal
processes would ensue.

Are Expected Soon In the Fraker Swin
Kansas City, Sept. 3. The attorneys for
the Kansas Mutual Insurance Company,
one of the companies victimized by Dr.,
Georgo W. Fraker, the Missouri swin
dler, arrested at Towar, Minn., Sunday,
are preparing to file a motion In the
United States circuit court to restrain
the executor of the Fraker estate, ami
the Commercial Bank, ot Liberty, Mo.,
from paying out any of the money paid
under the Judgment against tho Insurance
Potitlons will also be filed to restrain
the probate judge from disposing of any
money he may have in his possesion
under the judgment. It is probablo that
Uncle Jake Crowley, James Trlplett and
George Harvey, who testified to seeing
Dr. Fraker drown, will be arrested on
charges of perjury and there may be
some startling developments.
A gentleman .prominently connected
Tilth one of tho Insurance companies vic
timized by Fraker, takes a less confi
dent view o fthe situation. He said:
"It Is very unlikely that Fraker can
be held on any charge. He disappeared,
but he never put In a claim for any life
Insurance. The money was 'paid but
there is no proof that he received a cent
or tried to got a cent. It can never be
proved that Fraker actually put up a
Job to dctfraud the companies."
