Reader, did you ever hake Simmons
Liver Rboulatob, the "Kino of
Liver Medicines?" Everybody needs
take a liver remedy. It isaalufgishor
diseased liver that impairs digestion
and causes constipation, when the waste
that should be carried off remains in
the body and poisons the whole system.
That dull, heavy feeling is due to a
torpid liver. Biliousness, Headache,
Malaria and Indigestion are all liver
diseases. Keep the liver active by an
occasional dose of Simmers Liver Reg
ulator and you'll get rid of these trou
bles, and give tone to the whole sys
tem. For a laxative Simmons Liver
Regulator is better than Pills, It
does not gripe, nor weaken, but greatly
refreshes and strengthens,

THE LEBANON BANK
COWAN ASSIGNMENT HOLDS
In the Case of H. M. Beall, Receiver of
the Bank vs. J. L. Cowan and
Others, Appeal Taken
to U. S. Court.
It the case of H. M. Beall, receiver
Linn County bank vs. James L. Cow
an, W. B. Donaca, J. M. Settle and J.
A. Roberts, to recover $23,209.61 and
set aside the transfer of a large amount
of real aud personal property, an ap
peal was filed yesterday in the Uuited
States circuit court to the United
States circuit court of appeals of the
About two years ago J. L Cowaii,
who was conducting the Linn County
bank am the Bank of Lebanon aud
other enterprises, became financially
distressed, and was attached by
Fleischner, Mayer 4 Co., and other
creditors. Cowan executed a mortg
age of all of bis property, both Individ
ually and as the bank of -Lebanon to
Messrs. Donaca, Roberts and Settle,
uuder dale of June 27, 1893, was made,
knowing that he was insolvent, and
was for the purpose of fraud. Beall as
receiver of the Linn County bank,
sued to recover the money due $23,
209.61 and to set aside the mortgage
by Cowan to Roberts, Donaca and
In their answer, Cowau, Donaca,
Roberts and Settle set up that the pro
perty of Cowau was transferred for the
benefit of the creditors of Cowan, and
the depositors of Lebanon, and that
there was no fraud or conspiracy.
When the Linn County bank sued, by
Beall, Its receiver, an attachment
against Cowan et al. was also issued.
On the 29th day of May Judge Bel
linger passed a certain decree that the
assignment of properties, real aud per
sonal, from the defendant, J. L. Cow
an, to Donaca, Settle and Robar'a
should be vacated, aside, Insofar as the
same created or attempted to create
any Interest or claim to the properties
other than an interest or assignment
for the benefit of the creditors of Cow
au, and by the decree tbe assignments
and transfers were decreed to be for
the benefit of the creditors, and a re
ceiver was appointed, to whom should
be conveyed and transferred tbe sev
eral properties assigned, for the benefit
of the creditors; aud there was denied
to the complainant, tbe Llpn County
bank, a preference lieu, arislug by an
attachment, lu au aclioo at law. This
decree proveded that it was condi
tioned upon the written assent of the
Linn County bank and a waiver by it
of objections to the said decree, aud of
all right of upiKiil,
Tbe Llnu County Bauk refused to
accept the terms of the decree, and
upon August 12, the decree was set
aside, aud vacated, and It was adjudg
ed that a decree be entered dlssmissing
the complaint of tbe Linn County
bauk, and In favor of the defendants,
Cowan, Ponuca, Settle aud Roberts,
and for tbelr costs aud disbursements.
Tbe appeal Just filed to the Vulted
States circuit court of appeals of tbe
niutb circuit Is from this decision.
The Bank of California has a suit
against Cowau and wife, and to set
aside transfer of property, and decided
by Judge Bellinger the same as the
Linn County bank action.
These two suits will also be appealed
to the United States circuit court of
appeals cf (he ninth clrcuit.-Oregonian,
A Butter Fraud.
The following words are from a cir
culnr that is being circulated over the
stute, aud I think test to call atteution
to it as being one of the uiauy frauds
that are being perpetrated in these
days. I also desire to caution your
readers against being led into the
purchase of tbe stuff, which Is doubt
less nothing more or less tban now
well knuivu "black pepsin," which
analysis prove to be H parts of com,
mon salt, H pails of anutto and two
narts of rennet and orgaulc matter. A
two ounce box of this mixture Is sold
for $2.50, aud the materials are worth
about three cents. There are several
other mixtures of similar nature and
for a similar purpose that are being
foisted ou the public. The words re
ferred to aw "To whom it may con
eem I I atu able to demouatrats to uy
person that one pound of errantry but

volume by the addition of sweet milk.
One pound of butter is capable of tak
lug up nne.lmlf pound of milk. This
is done wilnout lowering the grade.
No trace of foreign matter is left In the
butter thus treated." The family right
for the use of this method Is offered
for the small sum of $1.
Parties who are so "penny wise and
pound foolish" as to purchase any of
the so-called rights should hear In
mind that by its use they become fit
subjects for dealing wltb the stute food
Commissioner by rendering themselves
liable to prosecution. Besides such
practice is bound to aet as a boomer
ang, and destroy what reputation for
good butter making the users of tbe
article may previously had. Farmers
should not be deceived into buying the
mixture, or the right, for the material
made wltb is aid (we cannot call it
b'Jtter) soon spoils and Is unfit for
trade. The claim that the yield of
butter increased is simply false. The
so-called increase is brought about by
Incorporating with the butter fat, the
easel ne, sugar and other constituents
of the milk, and the decomposition of
tbe nitrogenous matter soon renders
tbe entire mass rancid. Our attention
has been called to samples of this ma
terial, and no doubt the parties will
cease its use after being acquainted
with these facts. O. W. Shaw,

The Well Known Real Estate Boomer
Is Accused of Swindling
Practices in the
THE DALLES, Aug. 17.-The town
was stirred this afternoon by a sen
sational arrest. Rey. O.; R. Taylor,
who hits figured In the public eye as
the promoter of the North Dalles boom
scheme of several years ago, was served
with a warrant this afternoon by
Deputjr Sheriff Kelly and taken Into
custody. This morning Parker Owens,
sergeant of police in Saginaw, Mich.,
arrived in the Dalles with requisition
papers, signed by Governor Lord, cal
ling for Mr. Taylor's arrest, Tbe pa
pers were delivered to Deputy Sheriff
Kelly, who, in company witb Owens,
drove to Mr. Taylor's farm, a few
miles from town. Wbeu the officers
informed him of their miaslon, Mr.
Taylor took the matter coolly, only
asking that he be permitted to change
his clothes, and bid good-bye to his
wife and children. The officers and
prisoner drove to tbe county jail,
where Mr. Taylor was allowed a con
sultation wltb an attorney. The re
quisition papers were fouud to he in
proper form, and nothing couM be
done at this point to stay proceedings.
The Michigan officer seemed In great
haste to get away, and while the at
torney was still in consultation, a bug
gy drove up to the courthouse, and
Officer Owens and his prisoner stepped
in and drove off. The intention of the
authorities was to get the prisoner
away from any possible habeas corpus
proceedings, and it Is believed he was
taken to L'elllo, where the officer and
prisoner will board the night train.
All proceedings were thoroughly plan
ned and quietly carried out, so that
few people heard of tbe affair until the
acting parties were out of the city.
The complaint charges Taylor wltb
obtaining money under tuUe pretenses,
and was sworn to by Joseph Seemer,
and filed witb Otto Seiuple, acting
police justice of Saginaw.
The Denver Hotel Horror.
DENVER, Aug. 19.-The Gumry
hotel was wrecked by au explosion at
12:10 a. m., the entire rear half, a five
story brick and stone structure, going
down witb a crush. It was crowded
witb guests, many of whom must
have been killed, as well as the entire
force of employes sleeping in that part
of the building. Flategluss windows
of business bouses, near the vicinity,
were blown in, ami buildings budly
wrecked. A number of pedestrians
were injured by falling gloss.
The structure for 100 feet along the
alley, and for seventy-live feet toward
the front, is a rrnss of debris. Brick
and plaster are piled iu a heap twenty
feet high from the mass van be beard
the moans of the injured and dying.
The cause is supposed io be tbe bat

exploded; the sound, which was heard
throughout the city. A cloud of dust

It Is impossible to give a list of tip

Confessed and Then Repented,
CHICAGO, Aug. 17. James Mar
bry, a negro, under tbe influence of a
revivalist, confessed at a religious
meeting last night at the Peop'e's
mission, on Twenty-fifth street that
he had killed a man in New Orleans,
a plantation foreman, a year ago.
Word waa sent to the police and
Marbry was arrested, but on the way
to the station be regretted his action
and endeavored to escape. Several
shots were fired at hlni and he was
captured after a hard chase. Marbry
refused to tell the name of the man he
killed, but says he has written to D.
B. Temple, a lawyer, of Vicksburg,
Miss., giving the fact in tbe case, and
that Temple will defend him.
. Forest Fires.
SEATTLE, Aug. 18.-Set(ers along
LakeSamishrepoit that there Is an
unbroken line of forest fires from Bel
fast to the lake, destroying large at d
small timber, and rendering the at
mosphere almost suffocating. All
game is being driven from tbe bills to
the lakes and water courses, and deer
are almost domesticated. A settler
last week met two cougars near his
house. As be was unarmed, he bad to
give them the road. . Mothers dare
not let tbelr children get out of their
eight, aud there is much alarm
throughout the community.
, About Pheasants.
There is one section In the game
laws which Ib especially a good one. It
is that uo hunter can kill or have In
his possession more than twenty
pheasants or grouse, etc., at one time.
It is calculated to stop bunting for the
market, The open season for pheas
ants, grouse and quail will begin Sep
tember 1, and already sportsmen are
anxiously awaiting the time when
they can shoot a few of these danty
game birds. -.
Tbe section of the game law referred
to Is as follows;
- "Sec. 8. Every person who shall,
within the state of Oregon, sell, ex
change or otter for sale or exchange,
for money or anything of value, or
shall take or kill for sale, or bave in
possession for sale or exchange, any
grouse, pheosaut, quail, ring-necked '
or China pheasant, silver pheasania,
golden pheasant, copper pheasant,
green Japaneso pheasant, quail or bob
white or prairie chicken, shall bo
guilty of a misdemeanor, aud upon
conviction thereof, shall be punished
as hereinafter provided; provided,
however, that it shall he lawful to eel1,
or take or kill for sale any of the birds
hereinbefore enumerated, during the
period commencing October 15 of each
year, snd ending November 15 at tbo
same year, except as hereinbefore pro,
vided in seotiou 6 of this act; provided,
further, that no person shall in ouo
day kill or destroy a greater number
tban twenty of the hereinbefore enum
erated birds; provided, futher, that It
shall be unlawful to sell or offer for
sale, at have In possession In cold
storage or otherwise, any elk, deer,
trout, grouse, pheasant, Mongolian
pheasant, geese, duck or quail five
days after the opeu season for killing
the same closes,"
The law Is a good one and should be
enforced, The game warden men are
doing all they can iu the matter. Mr.
McGuIre was in McMinnville recently
and found evidence that Incriminated
County. Judge Magers, and promptly
bad proceedings instituted. A few
such cases as that ought to put a stop
