left her borne port some eight months
ago, that if true, whether committed
with or without cause, are exceedingly
startling, cruel and inhuman. They
allege that ever since they started out
they have been in danger of getting
killed one way 01 another, and they as
sert that not for anything could they
be induced to again go to sea under
command of Captain Kasob. The
crew, 35 men all told, have laid their
complaint before the German vioe-

S5 per cent of their deposits in avail
able funds, instead of 15 per cent.
Portland banks bavj been carrying
from 80 to 60 per cent ever since the

It is currently believed that the
Northern Pacilic is making strenuous
efforts to establish a line to connect
with the Seven Devils railroad, and
thus tap a rich copper region. The
Northwestern Railway Company has
also three crews of suiveyors in the
field, and is preparing the way for
graders from Huntington to the Ox
bend of Snake river, and from there
to the Peacock mine. There are now
28 O. R. & N. surveyors working from
Keating, on Loner Powder river, to
Eagle valley, arranging for the con
struction work from Baker City to
Seven Devils.
A Good Showing.
The Whatcom creamery has turned
out 82,840 pounds of butter, or over
lb tons since May 1, 1898. Patrons de
liver their cream and receive 24 cents
per pound for the butter yielded. The
sum ot $6,803 has thus been paid out to
Whatcom county residents since May.

will be driven, and the citizens of
Globe will make the event an auspi

the Southern Paoifio will make special

Los Angeles and El Paso, and that the
inhabitants of that section of country
will torn out in gala attire. '

after the manner of men, by uttering

Warren, "although sometimes I feel
as If I didn't know whether she did or
not," ho continued, somewhat dubl

abruptly into his sentence. "I have a

continued, bis face brightening as his
plan was unfolded to his mind, ."and

dressed him tn a low, earnest tone, In

that? 'I'd have the pig hung tin out
doors till twelve o'clock at night, then
take him In and give out the next morn
ing that he's been stolon.' 'By jinks,
I'll do It'
"It was a wonderfully fine plan, the
farmer thought and be left the pig
banging out as the butcher suggested
"At eleven o'clock the butcher him
self came along and packed tbo pork
Into his cart It was not there when tbe
farmer went out after It
"The next day, with a long face, ho
addressed the butcher in a hoarse
whlsiier: 'I say, Sam, somebody did
really steal that pig. That's right,
said tho butcher, nudging him and
winking wickedly at the same time,
'But by Jiuks, the pig . was really
stolen.' That's right; you stick to that
and you'll be all right said tho
butcher, encouragingly, and ho hurried
off, leaving his friend in a most lie
wtldcred state of mind, from which I
don't think be ever fully emerged."
