DISH FOR AN EPICCRE.
Honest im.t stew Is a delicious dish,
and this Is one of the best ways to
make It. Cut the meat Into small dice

gently In a pint of hot water, or sweet
not very salty, beef stock. Stew till
tender, then put in three tablespoon-
fuls of diced cold boiled potatoes. Stir
In a quarter of a cup of butter, two
tahltwpoonrula of flour till It Is smooth
one sixxmful of beef extract, teaspoon
ful of lemon Juice, and a teospoonful
of chipped parsley. Stir this evenly
Into the bubbling stew and season It
with siklt and pepKr to suit. Toasted
ir.i,t la nice to eat with it. It Is an
excellent "hurry up" dish.

Ralem, Or., January 23. The DavU
hou had a wwlon today lasting three
minutes. There were Just four present,
but they were enough to keep up the
form of the preliminary organisation,
and to wait till tomorrow, strictly obey
ing the constitutional provision that
bus than a quorum can adjourn from
day to day only. The opoeitlon de-
laren that It was never so strongly
unified as at present. It la decided In
iUi opinion that the Benson organlia-
Wm will have to be abandoned, aa it
will soon be found that It was able, to
io nothing. It Is certain that the
opposition has no Intention whatever of
going in and making up a quorum of
forty, and It Is likewise certain thit
they will not obey mandates of the
Benson house through Its officers, when
warrants are served upon them. Jona
than Bourne says he will yet be
BeeJcer. He went to Portland today,
beina- the first time he has left the
scene since the legislature evened.
MONEY TO BL'RN.
The New York Banks Are Glutted with
New York, January 23. The Flnan
There l no cessation of the movement
of money Into New York Banks. The
reserve Increase for the week la 14,895,
2S3, w-hloh brings the total excess re
serve to $37.07.800, the highest report
ed In over two years. The decrease In
loans shows a small demand for funds
at prevailing bank raws of 2 and 3 per
cent, but on the other hand there Is
reason to believe there has been some
closing of sterling exchange quotations
which have ao largely Increased the
loan Item of New York banks, and thus
the apparent decrease In loam might
be shown In the face of domestic bor
rowing. In other words the latter is
not on as large a scale as exchange
realising. While the banks are hold
ing to their 2 per cent loan agreement
it la rumored some of them have al
ready or will soon reduce the rate on
current balance to 1V per cent.
The stsjtement as a whole ls Interest
ing aa an Indication of the results
which have been forming for months.
The contraction in business previous to
the election; the heavy export sales and
liquidation in all lines baa forced
New York an immense fund of Idle
money, attracted In many cases by the
small Interest paid on balances. Of
course the piling up of this money
could not occur were business active,
but there are signs that capital is be
coming restive nd Is endeavoring to
seek channels where It can And returns.
With cheap money and fewer debts
than at apy time since the panic, the
chances favor a revival of 'busi
ness on a sure foundation. It will be
recalled that the bond sales of the part
few years furnished an opportunity to
relieve the banks of a large amount
of idle money, but no such outlook can
be looked for now. The money must

of another character. The recent rapid
rise In gilt-edged securities like govern
ment bonds emphasises a point that
money Is seeking a profitable field, but
this Is a narrow one, and will have
to be expanded. Then a general com
merclal and Industrial revival may be
looked for with certainty.

Portland, January 23. George Bets,

cago will in all probability remain in
Oregon and serve hie three years' sen
tence for burglary. In order to allow
the Chicago authorities to take Beti
on a charge of murder. Governor Lord
granted him a pardon after he had
signed the extradition warrant. Judge
Sears today held that the extradition
warrant was Inoperative because It
was signed while Be-tx was still under
sentence here. He also holds that the
pardon Is inoperative until Bets -has
accepted it. Rets, has expressed no
intention of accepting the pardon and
It Is probable he will decide to serve
out his sentence rather than take the
chances of being convicted of murder

LITTLE PETE Mf RDERED.
of Han Francisco Chinamen
Posses In His Checks,
San Francisco. January 23. Little
Pete, the most noted Chinese in San
Francisco, was murdered by bis coun
trymen In Chinatown tonight. He waa
sitting in a chair In a Chinese barber
shop when three Chinese entered and
hot him. Inflicting a wound from the
ffects of which he died In a short
time. The murderers were arrested.
The murder Is the outcome of a quarrel
between the Chinese six companies, and
It is supposed that the murderers are
highbinders hired to do the Job.
"Little Pete" has had a varied and
remarkable career In San Francisco
and for years he had been the most In
fluential Chinese In this part of the
country. Whenever any of his coun
trymen were In trouble Little Pete
was always called upon, to help them
out. and he achieved a reputation fir
Jury fixing that almost landed him In
the penitentiary. He was at the head
of Ue business of importing Chinese
women for Immoral purposes and wax
ed wealthy. Little Pete, although he
spoke English fluently, retained his
Chinese dress as a matter of policy. He
controlled many of the gambling dens
In Chinatown and his revenue from
that source were large. He was an all-
around sport and no game was too
stiff for him. He played the races
heavily, and made some bfg winnings.
He waa so successful In picking 'win
ners that about a year ago the race
track people became suspicious and It
was found that he had a number of
Jockeys la his employ. Little Pete waa

Senator Uquire, but the line kass
been distinctly drawn between CUns

fight has sifted down to a struggle be

be a question of which can draw suf
ficient support from the lesser candi
dates to land the prise. Turner most
gain Just 'ten more votes than Clint.
but if either can win, the conditions
favor Turner even with this handicap.
