As yet there has nothing been
heard or seen of the bandit or
baudits who held up the overland
train between here and I',ugeue
What makes the case so difficult
for the authorities to handle is the
fact that no two of the train men
have given the same description of
the robber they saw and wuo
seemed to be the principle one in
the hold-up. Several officers have
been in this vicinity and have run
down everything that had the ap
pearance of a clew, but to no put
pose. The morning after the
robbery there were several strange
and hard-looking characters in
town nearly all the forenoon be
fore they suddenly disappeared and
no one seemed to care whence they
came or where they went.
The people of Kugene have suc
ceeded in raising the full amount of
$3,ooo as a bonus for the establish
ment there of a wo'olen mill. The
people of the county scat town
have done a good thing. This en
terprise when well under way
will return to them the invest
ment many times over. Besides
the employment it will give and
the money it will circulate the pres
tige of having an institution of that
kind will be of great benefit to the
future growth of that young and
flourishing city. Well doue Eu

copy of the handbook' gotten out
by the Oregonian to cover the- de

to the Lewis & Clark Exposition
of 1905. This little book is ele
gantly gotten up and contains a
wide range of information on all
subjects pertaining to the develop
ment of the Northwest. It is
handsomely printed and illustrated
and will be of incalculable interest
to the thousands who desire to

The assassin of President Mc

o'clock on Tuesday morning, Oc

defiant and said he was not sorry
for his awful crime. The night be

hearty breakfast and did not break
down. The physicians who held
the autopsy decided that his brain
was normal. He was buried in
the prison cemetery.
Alderman Honore Palmer of
Chicago has declared war on ciga
rettes. He has introduced a high
license ordinance assessing dealers
a fee of $100 for sale of all sorts of
cigarettes and rice paper. "I am
going to make it interesting for the
dealers," he said, "who sell to
schoolboys. The traffic around the
public schools is enormous. Even
some of the little girls buy them."

MOVED CAMP. - '
Two Locations Run for
Surveyor Mnkltty Ooml Vro
yreHH. During the past week the survey
in the field for the Cottage Grove
and Hohemia Railroad has done a
big lot of work. They have run
location lines on two routes from
the initial stake opposite the South
ern Pacific depot to points on Row
river about seven miles out. The
heavy rain for three days interfered
with their progress a little but it
did not for a moment stop their
work. All things considered a re
markable showing has been made
since the work first began.
On Thursday the entire outfit
pulled up stakes from their first
camp ground just east of town, and
moved the little village of white
tents and equipage to n point on
the Row river about ten miles out.
Erom this new vantage ground the
work will be pushed steadily ahead.
The force now in the field "is some
sixteen, but later on when the
heavy timber belts shall be reached
the force will be increased to meet
P. J. Jennings came down from
Portland on Tuesday and went
over the lines thus far run, finding
all things to his entire satisfaction,
and returned again to Portland 011

THE JjE It O Y MIXE.
Advices from the superintendent
of the Lc Roy mine are to the effect
that the packing in of the supplies
recently shipped from here is about
done; v the new blacksmith shop is'
up and ready for use; the shaft
house is completed; the cabin and
store houses fixed in good shape
and next week the work of sinking
on the shaft will go steadily ahead.
Some fine specimens will soon be
sent out for exhibition at the com
pany's rooms here. The first block
of 50,000 shares has been entirely
absorbed by the people of our own
town and much more stock could
have been disposed of. The Board
of Directors will get together the
coming week and will most likely
authorize the sale of another block,
but the price will be doubled.. .The
fact of the first block going off like
hot cakes among our own people
ought to be aietty good indicator
to others that this property is des
tined to be a winner in the future.
The sale of another block of stock
will realize all the working capital
that will be necessary this winter,
and by the time that more money
will be required the mine will have
seen such development that the
stock will easily be rated above par,

Speaking of the change of front

says that Great Britain has acted
with rare good sense. The canal
ought to be American-built, with
American money and by American
workmen and American brains,
ana now it win ue. mere is no
doubt Great Britain will eventually
be the greatest beneficiary, and
will have no reason to repent the
course she has adopted.

CALL AT YOUR EARLIEST
Dadlv Cut iiy Saw.
Mr. Wcnvcr, the owner of the
shingle mill at Saginaw, met' with
ut una accident on incsnny niter-
noon. The saw caught his right
hand and cut down between the
first and second fingers into the
back, severing the extentiary ten
don pf the first finger. Dr. Job
dressed the wound by taking sev
eral stiches'aud sutured the tendon,
and when it is healed the function
of the finger will he all right.
Huntiiks Out ov Luck
Dr Job has returned from his
hunt on the headwaters of Mosby
Creek. He was out w;th Doc
Pitcher and John Martin. They
cached their grub in camp on the
creek, and while away on the hunt
some marauder swooped down on
the camp and looted the outfit of
every particle of grub in stock.
They could not continue the hunt
without food and were forced to
return empty handed.
