Mob of 200 Search Jail at Baker City In
Vain for Murderer.
Baker City, Or., March 5.A mob
of 200 masked men entered the Baker
county jail early yesterday morning and
made a demand on Deputy Sheriff
Snow for Pleasant Armstrong, the
young man who murdered Miss Minnie
Ensminger at Haines last Christmas
morning. The sheriff's office was
warned early in the evening that an at
tempt would probably be made to lynch
Armstrong during tbe night, but there
had been so many threats of late that
tbe sheriff was not alarmed at first.
About 10 o'clock it was discovered
tliat some of the supposed leaders were
drinking heavily, and that there as
a possibility of trouble. The sheriff
thought it wise to remove Armstrong
from the jail, and he was spirited away.
Between 2 and 3 o'clock the mob ap
peered at the jail, many of them being
under the influence of liquor. They
demanded that Armstrong be turned
over to them. They were allowed to
go through the jail, which they did in
an orderly manner, making a careful
Eeirch for the prisoner,, after which
Tbe want of a determined leader was
all that prevented tho lynching. Dep
uty Snow admits that if the mob had
appeared in force early in tbe evening
they would have secured their u.an.

glers, who have been operationg in
l'ortiana and otner coast towns, are
now actively sought by agents of the
treasury department. " It is possible
that tbe opium ring, which has existed
for several years past, may be broken
up and those implicated in smuggling
the drug clapped into prison.
During the past month unwonted
energy has been observed on the part of
tbe treasury department. It is asserted
that an aggressive, Jpereistent and un
swerving campaign has been ordered
directe l against the smugglers of opium
and Chinamen. It is an open secret
on Paget sound that tbe campaign is
on, yet the officials stationed in Port
land express absolute ignorance of the
activity which is now common talk in
tbe towns farther north.
Owing to its ideal location, Paget
sound has for many yeajs been infested
with smugglers, while tbe cities and
towns farther south along the coast
have frequently been used either as a
headquarters or as storage depots for
the "dope." Tbe last big ring was
smashed about eight years ago, but the
federal officers have reason to believe
that the trade has never been aband.
Eveiything points to the faot that
there is now operatirg a gang of smug
glers as daring and successful as the
uld ring. Even government officials
are willing to admit that they have
been suspicious that such is the case.
The reason they do not wish to acknow
ledge candidly tbe presence of the ring
is that of policy. If an officer could be
induced to talk the would say that
Portland is oce of the central points of
operation for the gang, bnt it is against
tbe rules for the men in the govern
mental service to djscuea such affairs
Urders were issned by the treasury
department last month that no stone
should be left unturned to nnearth the
smugglers end break up tbe ring.
These instructions were emphatic and
the officers became aroused and grew
more suspicions than ever. It was
plainly hinted ' in the departmental
orders that all persons interested in
violating the customs laws should be
captured or, at lca,-t, their business
wrecked. There is a standing rule
urging energy on the part of the offi
cers, but the tenor of the latest com
mand showed that a campaign had
her.n declared and it was to be persist
ently carried on.
There are two revenue eutters on
Puget sound and these lost no time in
following instructions. They have

MONEY IN PORK.
Concentrated Action for Establishment ol
Packing House at Portland Needed.
Portland, March 4. After raising,
fattening, shipping and selling hogs for
a longer time, perhaps, than any other
manln tbe Pacific Northwest, Ed. E.
Kiddle, banker and mill man of Island
City, Or., is of the opinion that wheat
fed, to porkers yields 90 cents per
bushel, and that Portland, if properly
supplied with meat packing establish
ments, would be the trade center of the
Pacific coast. Mr. Kiddle said:
"It would take time to brins about
trie condition of affairs that would
make Washington and Oregon leaders
in tbe pork industry, but if properly
gone about it can be accomplished.
lhe thing is in rather svehaotic
state at present. The man with suffi
cient capital looks over the field and
says that he cannot afford to invest
his money because there is not suffi
cient quantity of pork produced to
warrant it. '
On the other hand, the farmer has
his share of these troubles. He .com
plains that as there are no packing
plants he cannot afford to devote time
and energy toward growing hogs.
There is no market for them."
"The proper way to bring about such
a market would be for those having
sufficient capital to put in the plant to
make a tour or send out letters to farm
era, thus ascertaining just how many
bogs would be produced . in the event
the establishment was put into run
ning order. This would afford suffi
cient basis for each side to build noon.
Tbe farmer would have a market guar
anteed and the packer would have a
promit-e of sufficient pork to kqep , his
"J have been in the business long
enough to know that there is good profit
in it for the farmer, I have fed hogB
on everything that will fatten them and
have kept accurate account of the re
tarns brought through this means. I
know these figures to be correct."
Mr. Kiddle then showed that when
wheat was worth 60 cents per bushel
and therefore 1 cent per pound, it
would yield returns of approximately
90 cents per bushel when fed to hogs.
Tbe pork market is seldom if ever
lets than 6 cents per pound," said Mr.
Kiddie, "and tour pounds of wheat will
make one pound of pork, II 4 eents
worth of wheat make a pound of pork
worth 6. cents, then there is an advance
of 2 cents on 4, which carried out pro
portionately means 90cents per bushel."
V ben V ashington and Oregon farm
ers are talked to of 90-cent wheat they
laugh, and if they get 90 cents fot their
crops they consider themselves very
fortunate. But, according to Mr. Kid
dle, it is possible for tbenj to secure
tnat price at all times.
"Washington and Oregon are better,
so far as general conditions are con
cerned, for hog-growing than any other
sections' of the Union," he said, "and
it will take a meat packing establish
ment at Portland to bring this fact into
due prominence. Last fall I shipped
700 head of hogs East. The pork de
rived from them is now coming back to
the Pacific coast states in bacon and
hams. Th!s is not right. We should
be self supporting alona this line at
Askediif bogs could be fattened en
Northwest stubble, Mr. Kiddie said:
' I do not think t Hpgs can be
turned loose on stubble and will get
their growth, without being fed, but
when it comes to preparing them for
market they must be fed on wheat.
The fynee problem is a serious one in
this country. Few farmers have hog-
proof fences, but these could be pro
vided and would be in the event a
packing house was assured."
Mr, Kiddle does not believe the
Northwest has any great future in beef
raising, tbe proper food for beef fatten
ing being cheaper in the Middle -West
ern states than here.
WAR CLOUD IN SOrtT.
Russians See CIasb with Turkey Coming
St. Petersburg, March 4. Some pub
licists are of the opinion that only the
severest language towards Turkey can
prevent a war between Rufsia and Tur
key in the spring. They believe Tur
key will pursue bands of Macedonian
revolutionists across tbe Bulgarian fron
tier and tnat public opinion will com
pel Russia to inter fore.
The Russians thoroughly understand
that a war with Turkey will be a more
severe one than that of 1878. Officers
are quoted as saying that the Turkish
army is the best in the world, owing to
its German organization and armament.
There is an inclination here to antici
pate German financial support of Tor
key and in view of the situation fore
bodings cf a clash with Turkey are
freely expressed in private although
they are carefully suppressed in the
