SHIPPING FRUIT EAST.
New Plan of Preserviug it En Route
Without the Use of Ice.
Di .t illstray, of Oakland, Cat., has a
newly patented plan for shipping;
fruit, which Is attracting attention
front all persons connected with fruit
raining and shipping. The plan is
commended by Oregon horticulturists,
who say ttiat it is possible it may do
away with the present difficulty of
shipping green fruit to the East al
reasonable rates. By the new plan no
ice is to be used, aud the Inventor
says that in that Item alone there will
be a saving of from $LflO to $250 per
carload. The Ice used In yie present
system of fruit transportation costs
from (200 to (250 per car between the
Pacific coast and Chicago, besides
Involving a delay of thlrlv hours for
loading the cars with ice en route.
The Inventor says that by the old
process it has been necessary to pick
the fruit green and keep it iu air
tight cars, making it reach the East
ern market in a necessarily poor condi
tion.' The Gilstrap plan is to take an ordi
nary box car and put a frame inside of
it, leaving space enough around the
frame to permit a man to look out for
the fruit. With doors at the end of
each car one man cau take care of an
entire trainload. The frame Is covered
about the sides and ends with heavy
I urlap, doors being made at each side
of the fruit receptacle. The bottom of
the frame is raised two inches from
the car floor for the purpose of venti
lation, and there are various holes in
each side of tthe car to let the air in
On the top of this frame, extending
the entue length and width of it, is a
galvanized irou tank. This serves as
a roof lor the fruit compartment, and
it liuB several flues pasting up through
the water-tank and roof ofthecarfor
thorough ventilation. The tank wi.l
iioiu low gallons of water. By a
system of opening! about Ihe tusk,
which the mun In charge can regulate,
tlie water will. constantly drop dowu
u the burlad and keep it wet, while
the fruit remaius dry. The ventila
tion by the means already shown is
thorough, and the motion of the cur
u ili give a continual draught.
The Wildest Land.
Assistant Chief Goode, of the United
Bttttt geographical survey, who vis
ited Oregon last summer, says the
wildest region in the entire United
fitates in an area of 1000 square miles
lying in the mountains between
Hosehurg aud Coquille in Douglas and
Coos counties. He describes it as
mysterious undiscovered country, in
which roams undisturbed wild game,
and whose brooks and rivers are filled
with wild fowl. It iB nearly all cov.
ered with a dense growth of pine, fir,
hemlock and other trees. Many of the
trees are of enormous size, and stand
so closely that II is difficult for men to
make their way between them. Where
the tret cure uot so thick the heavy
growth of brushes of various kinds
take t lit i r place. It is a country that
Is llllul with all kinds of wild game
including, as reported to him, elk, dif
ferent kinds of bear, mountain lions
deer and other animals, including
lynx and others. There are also varl
ous kinds of fowl. The streams all
have an abundance of trout aod other
kinds of fish. He penetrated into the
wilds a dozen miles and s-w things
that filled him with wonder al the
vastness of the forest and that anyone
should attempt to live in It. North
A Serious Accident.
All accident which came near cau
ing the death of Ira McCormack,
happened last Sunday about a tulle
aud a half east of Brownsville, says
Ihe Times. George Keeuey w as riding
his bucking eayuse, and Ira, desiring
to create a little spoit for the bystand
era, jumped on behind him. The
load proved too heavy for ihe little
steed, and no sooner had Ira become
seated thau the horse fell, both riders
falling underneath. Iu his scramble
to get up and gam bis freedom the
animal planted his hoofs In Ira'a face,
and also lu various places on his body,
his shoulder blade was broken, breast
badly bruised and countenance
Uligblly disfigured. Mr. Keetuy es
caped without a scratch. Mo fright
ened was the animal that he never
checked his break-neck speed until he
arrived at Illlyeu's livery stable, sttv
when he encountered a heavily
tntidvd bi glTi in the ei.lcrn suburbs
of the city, aud II nick a hind wheel
with such force as to bend the axle
almost double, The occupants, Mr,
Gilpin tm! 1ft air MM. Hojh
Fields, very naturally .found lodge
ment by the roadside, This fright
ened Mr. Gilpin's horse and be, too,
ran away, breaking the buggy and
demolishing the harness somewhat,
but all damages have been already
repaired, except in Ira's case, which
will require the soothing Influence of
many summer days, besides the care
ful attention of a physician. He was
unconscious for a long time after being
picked up, but Dr. Cox was called and
administered tn hU needs, and be will
doubtless be spared to enjoy the les
sons thus taught regarding wild and
Oregon's Fruit Crop.
There has been considerable fear ex
pressed that the recent cold weather
may have affected the fruit trees along
Ihe Willamette valley. Many orch
ards are just beglnlng to bud, and it
was believed that the cold winds and
frosts would be harmful. An East
Hide gentleman who is interested In
fruit culture sayr. "I do not believe
any barm has resulted to the coming
crop as yet from the cold. The con
tinued pleasant weather of February
has had its effect on the trees, and
started the sap to going rather prema
turely. The cold has had a beneficial
effejt iu one respect, and that Is check
ing the sprouting buds. It is well
enough it came at the time It did, for
If the fruit trees had been fully bud
ded, and a sharp cold snap had come,
then it would of course have been very
damaging. The prospects thus far for
the fruit crop in the Willamette valley
Shooting Match at Hillsboro.
The McMinnville Telephone Regis
ter gives an account of the recent
shooting match between Martin and
KJnzcl: "The shooting match on
Tuesday, was won by Martin so far
as the killing of birds is concerned
Marliu killed 23 aud Kinzel 21 out of
25. Kinzel challenging Martiu'ssbells
it was fouud that one nf them con-
tained more shot thau the rules allow,
The matter is yet lu the hands of Ihe
referee, but the general opinion is that
the money will be given to Kinzel.
The Pol Hand people undoubtedly
flim-hamnied the Yumhillers." Martin
rarely makes a match that does not
end lu unpleasantness.
An Indian Killed.
The west-bound passenger train of
the 0. Ii. & N., about 9t30 Saturday
night ran over an Indiau two miles
east of Pendleton. The Indian had
evidently been to sleep on the track,
and was probably on his way to the
agency from Pendleton. He was
likely drunk, and exercised his right of
citizenship by lying across the rails.
The train ran on to Pendleton before
the discovery was made that a mau
had been run over. Then pieces of
clothing and blood were found on the
engine, aut it Is probable there was
hardly a large enough piece of the
Umatilla left to hold an inquest over.

GOLD BULLION STEAL
Authorities Supposed to Have a Clue
That Will Lead to the
Conviction of the .
SAN DIEGO, Cal., March 23,-The
1 nve8tlgatlon of the robbery of the big
gold bur and gold coin at Eusenada
took a sensational turn today, wnen
Allan Pratt and James E. Garrett
were arrested at Ensenadu, charged
with the crime. ' They are being held
on suspicion, but the arrest of Garratt,
who was uot known to have been sus
pected, iudicates that the authorities
have a clue which may result iu the
convection of the guilty parties. Al
len Pratt has for years served Manuel
Rivoll as cashier and confidential clerk
and was iu full posession of the secrets
of the firm, knowing also the combi
nation to the safe. He is a young
Englishman and has a wife and child.
During his residence in Enseiifda, he
acquired a little property, and his rep
utation has been the . very best.
James E. Garratt has had an interest
ing history during the past five years.
He Is a young Canadian aud for some
time was clerk of the International
company at Ensenadu. Both men are
naturalized Mexicans and cannot
therefore ask protection from Eng
land. The Ntcaraguan Affair
WASHINGTON, March 22.-The
trouble between Nicaragua and Great
Britain, which has threatened to en
tangle the United Stitles, has not as
sumed the belligerent aspect made out
by recpnt reports. - The-tiiitiHie reports
were dispelled by the fact that Great
Britain hud assured Ambassador
Bayard that ihero wouil be no en
croachment on American soil. With
this understanding Great Britain may
bombard Grcytown without the Inter
vention of the United States. That
Great Britain made any such repre
sentation is discredited by those best
advised on the subject. It is knowu
definitely that Kir Julian Paunceforte,
British ambassador, has uot seen Sec
retary Gresham on the Niearaguan
question and had no communication
whatever on the subject. From tin
standpoint of Nicaragua!! officials, Ihe
question Is readily susceptible of peace
ful adjustment, and there is not a re-
niont chance of a bombardment of
Greytowii. General Barrios, the
special envoy of Niearaguan, who re
cently lctt for home, will soon return
to Washington.. From the British
standpoint, the trouble with Nicar
agua is one in which interests of the
United States and Great Hrlliau are
identical, rather than opposed, for
when the British vice-consul, Mr.
Hatch, was expelled from Nicaiaguun,
several citizens of Hie United States
were also expelled. The latter were
allowed to return, but it la behoved an
indemnity for their expulsion was
Went Through the Passengers.
FLORENCE, Col., March 2,1.-At
10 o'clock tonight, soon after train No.
6 on the Florence & Crpplo Creek road
left Victor, a man, who had boarded
the bllnd-bnggtige, crawled over the
tender Into the engine and cnuipellled
the engineer and fireman, at the point
of a revolver, to stop the train at a
point one mile from Victor etatioti.
One other robber then went through
the passengers iu the sleeper, securing
about $800 iu money and several
watches. While this was going on,
three or four other robbers, who were
in waiting at the point where the
train was stopped, went to work on
the mall and express car, soon forcing
au entrance, but, so far as learned,
there was nothing in the mall or ex
press oar secured of any value.
Highest of all in Leavening
Fools .rl Their Money.
STOCKTON, Cal., March 23.-Sev. ,
eral days ago, a prominent rancher,
living near Lodi, was buncoed out of
$1500 by three sharpers. Two. men
drove up to his ranch In the morning,
and used the old dodge of wanting to
purchase some laud iu that section.
Both were elderly looking men, and
one claimed to be superior judge of Al
ameda county. After driving over the
ranch, they invited the owner to go
with them down the road, while they
talked over land values. On the road
a confederate was met, who bailed the
trio and suggested that they try their ;sv
luck In a lottery game be was mani
pulating. All three played and won,
and then the two men who were with
the rancher broached a .scheme by
which they, could win $10,000 from the
lottery man. The rancher went to
Lodi, and drew the money from the
bank, putting it It. to a tin box given
him by the sharpers. They appar
ently had a similar sum in another
box. The rendezvous was visited, but
the lottery mau was not present, and
the sharpers managed to change boxes
with the Lodi man. On reachiug
home, he found a box full of stones.
The sharpers lost no time in getting
out of the country. They secured a
rig at Gait and drove to this oity, and
from here they disappeared. One of
the horses they had driven so hard
that it died a few hours afterward
from its exertions. Several years ago
a similar dodge was worked, one
sharperclaimlng to be a superior judge
Insanity the Defense.
ROSEBURG, Or., March 23.-Tbe
case of the state vs. Beckman occupied
the attention'of the circuit court the
entire day. The state rested its ca o
at noon, after making nut a strong
case against Beckman. The defense
then began offering its testimony, and,
very much to the surprise of neai ly
every one, entered a plea of Insanity,
and spent the afternoon In examining
a large lint of witnesses who were sub
poenaed from the state of Minnesota to
prove that Beckman was Insane at in
tervals while he lived in that statu
several years ago, From present ap
pearances, the case -will not be cou
cluded for several days yet.

FRESNO, Cal., Maroh 28.-G. Jf.
Wood and H. P. Lemon were held to
answer today at Selma on a charge of
obtaining money under false pretenses.
The defendants had sold a stone wo
man, manufactured in Selma, to N. P.
Daggett, a farmer, under the claim
that it was a human petrification,
taken from the earth in the Coast
range mountains of this country,
where a number of other alleged pet
rifications had been secured and put
upon the market, The work was done
by one Bozeman, who used his own
daughter to make a cast for the stono
