Topoka (Kan.) Journal: Now
Tillamook county received a
rude shock this (Thursday) morn
ing when it became known that
all worK in tiie construction of
the Pacific icaiiw & NaviVntinn
Company's road into this county
was stopped and that not a wheel
was moving today. Suspension
of work will, however, be tem
porarily, but it may be that ac
tive work will not be resumed
until next spring. The Pacific
Railway and Navigation Company
is under contract with the right
of way committee to have fifteen
miles of the road completed this
year, and the road completed and
in operation between Tillamook
City and Hillsboro by the 31st of
December, 1908, giving a bond of
$20,000 that the company would
comply with the contract Ow
ing to the work being suspended,
and the first fifteen miles of the
road not being completed, Mr.
Lytle could be made to forfeit
the amount of the bond, unless
he can show good cause. It is
true that the railroad was being
constructed under great disad
vantage, owing to the difficulty
in procuring men, who have been
coming and going all summer,
but there are a large number of
persons in the county who have
predicted what took place today.
No doubt, taking advantage of
the condition of the money mar
ket in the East, Mr. Lytle was
forced to close down temporarily
until the money and labor situa
tion is on a safc,;an4 surer basis.
No one should feel at all alarm
ed, for the Pacific Railway &
Navigation Company's railroad
will be built and completed. Ov
er $200,000 have already been ex
pended upon its construction in
this county, and upon permanent
work. The shut down will pro
bably delay the time somewhat
in having the railroad completed,
but with different conditions next
spring it may be that Mr. Lytle
will be able to get the road fin
ished on time. Tillamook Headlight

Baker City. Or.. Nov. 4. -So
complete has been the getaway
made by the assasins of Harvey
K. Brown that not a trace has
been discovered by which the of
ficers may ascertain the identity
of the criminals. Since Brown
was blown up at his trate on the
evening of September 30. several
detectives have been at work on
the case, without any result be
ing obtained, and officers are
now as much in the draw as they
The Thiel Detective Agency
was the first employed on the
case and Captain Swain, head of
the Spokane branch, was put in
charge of the work here but fail
ed to obtain any knowledge of
the identity or whereabouts of
the assasins. After the Thiel
agency, the Pinkertons were se
cured to try to unravel the mys
tery, but, much to their chagrin
and that of the citizens of Baker
City, they have "fallen down"
as hard as any one else. There
have been dozens of sleuths
working on the case because of
the reward of $10,000 offered
for the capture and conviction of
the assasins. Frank Tucker, ar
rested about two weeks after the
murder for having made the
statement that he knew the guil
ty parties, is still confined in the
county jail, but the officers have
found that his story was merely
the imaginings of a liquor-crazed
brain. It seems to be the gener
al opinion that the guilty parties
escaped immediately after the
crime was committee and are
now far away from Baker City.
QTillamookers have had so many
surprises in regard to a railroad
tapping this country, we do not
think for one moment that a
small thing like stopping work
on the railroad will ruffle them in
