Emit Situation as to Status of the
Depot Site Kill lit Reduced
to Taper by Engineers.
.Mr. Himmnnd Vill C.he All i r.ir Show,
bat. Therefore. Casaot fUttl Coi
stnctioi ii lite City It is
Vttiit fee Knit.
Work has been goln forward qulttly
during tho post two weeks on the depot
site matter and certain business men
have determined that the site shall be
In the center of the city if possible. They
claim that the question of location Is an
Important one and that the merchants
cannot afford to have tho freight station
at either of the extreme ends of the city.
The city Is not now, nnd from It posi
tion and shai never will be so large
but thai the Scow Hay tlte will by all
odds lie the must advantageous location.
The question of drayaxe charge will be
found to be an Important one, and Ihey
have Induced, the company to defer de
cision in the matter until more work can
be done towards securing th central lo
cation. Should th railroad company de
cide on locating the depot at Smith-
p..lnt. the principal shipping and whole
sale business would of necessity drift lo
the neighborhood of the depot. It la not
n question of what the railroad comrany
wants, but It Is what the city want and
must hnve. It makes little difference to
Hie railroad company w here the depot Is,
but It makes s big difference to the ship
per and merchant. One thing ' quite
cirtaln, which Is of extreme importance
to every resident of the city, no work
will lie done on the construction of the
line through the city until, the depot
site Is determined. It will be a matter of
serclus moment to all If this part of the
work has to be left until K'S, and as a
well known real estate agent said yes.'er
tny. It liehoovr every man, woman and
lilld lo uri;e th -matter to a settlement.
;"lo fame gentleman said that It wa
i ill h to -delay In arranging for tho
8io Hay site. "There Is where the de-
it must go: there I the site that will
cis nearly do Justice to all and the
t tuatton may as well be recognised first
i. laid. No good can come of delay
umy harm and the sooner the question
Is settled the sooner Immediate henellts
of the rallroud will be felt by all."
Inquiry at the railroad 'ifflces yester
day revealed the fact that th enitineers
of tho company are prepaiiiM: maps
which will show all of the ground. In
tended for depot site, for which deeds
have been put In, for Hie three different
locations, and which will alsa show the
ground still needed for each site, but
which has not yet been donated. Uy this
afternoon the matter will oe In shape to
present to the various committees which
have It In hand, so that they can see
Just what progress has been made In
securing the dtrterent ltcs. The greatest
progress seems lo have lioen made by
the parties having In hand the depot site
at Aldetbrook, which Is almost complete.
Their offer Is now almost double that
mude by any of the other parties.
Who In her for a ilav or iwo, said lo
an AMorlur. r preventative last night that
he did not feel Justllled In coinlnit lo a
h.nty decision In tha matter of a depot
site, as ho wanted to iv all Interested
a fair show, but neither did he feel Justl
lled lo, or could, commence construction
through thj city mull the matter wa set
tled. Another matter which Is considered of
omo Importance, I the fact that the city
cannot reap the full bcnellt of the moneys
being spent here until proper hotel ae
Hinimodatlurtti ure provided for the many
Htrongera sure to Hook here this season.
Instead of lying down asleep, it wa sug
gested active steps should be taken to
pruvldi for the proper car of visitor.
If this h not done, Portland will con

th heart action became bad. While hi
naturally strong constitution gave Eng

been considered grave. For the ast
three day he had lapse of unconscious
ness, and since last night he has been
able only at long Intervals to recognlxe
those about hla debslde.
The end came even sooner than was ex
pected. During the forenoon the patient
waa unconscious, but it wa possible to
arouse him for an Instant, and once or
twice he spoke. His talk was, however.
Incoherent. Mr. English died In the room

The Murderer of Three Director Suffers
the Penalty of Death.
Canon City, Col., Feb. 7. Benjamin
Radcllffe, th slayer of the entire school
board of Jefferson district. Park county,
was hanged at the penitentiary tonight.
The drop fell at Ki5 o'clock. The crime
for which Radcllffe suffered death was
prompted by a desire for revenge for I
what he considered grievous wrongs. He
deliberately shot down In the school
house at Jefferson the three members of
the school board, Samuel Taylor, Lincoln
F. McCurdy, and George D. Wyatl. The
cause of the trouble was the circulation
of reports of alleged criminal Intimacy
between Radcllffe and ris motherless
daughter, a girl of 1$. The stories Rad
cllffe attributed to McCurdy. It was elec
tion day. May , when the directors arriv
ed to open the polls. A quarrel arose
and Radcllffe shot them down with a
Winchester, one after another. Radcllffe
stood before the door, and. as none of
the men were armed, there was no es

MRS. IlIGGINSON WILL FIGHT.
Boston. Mass., Feb. 7. Mrs. Julia Bo
land HUginson, who recently sailed for
Europe with James W. Smith, will con
test the suit brought by her husband,
Francis Lee Hlgglnson, tn the Suffolk
This action by Mrs. Hlgglnson effect
ually silences the story that Mr. Hlggln
son sent to his runaway wife In Genoa
$UHJ,00U in settlement of their differences.
An appearance was entered In Ihe su
perior court this morning In Mrs. Hipgln
son's behalf by Francis C. Welch, of the
firm of Sohler & Welch, and the ens will
probably come up In the May term of
the divorce court.
The libel which the court Issued upon
Mr. Hlgglnson's application naming
Smith as co-respondent. Is returnable on
Monday. It may be that the case will
not be reached In season for trial in May,
and will go over to the October term.
As no answer Is required In divorce
cases, Mrs. Hlgglnson's side will not be
heard until the case IS actually tried,
unless she also files a cross libel against
er husband on statutory grounds.

the government was preparing various
measures for the relief of the agricultural
classes. Balfour also stated It was his
personal conclusion that agriculture stir

personal belief that the reduced prices
were largely due to th artificial appu

monetization of silver, and, secondly, lo
the artificial advantage given the pro
