There has been considerable excitement
in a quiet way in ('aldwell the past week
on account of a supposed gang of hoIse
thieves, disposing of stolen stock in this
vicinity. Horses in possession of a man
working on the Phyllis canal were identi

as his property. Other stolen stock was
found in IpXaession of innocent parties.
The stock was brought into the country
by apparent immigrants who traded it to
unsuspecting parties. They were traced
to Caldwell from whence they went to
Boise City, and from there they took the
Hailey road. A deputy sheriff from Seat

complice was arrested in Caldwell, but
turned loose again upon his promise not.

wanted. There is a gang of horse thieves
working in eastern Washington and Ore

and it is to be hoped that the authorities
are on the right track. In the meantime
people can not be too careful in trading
and buying horses from strangers. ('ald
AN ODD CHARACTER.
How the Hoys Plhyed Joke e C('apt. Pat
Fran the, ('lhicago Gl(;ob.
One of the men in the northern part of
the state who is known to almost everyone
in Franklin county, is Patrick Shields.
born in Ireland and raised in New York
state. He was a pmtege of Vice President
Wheeler, and early in life took a lively
inte.est in politics. Enthusiastic as a
child, overflowing with spirits and good
nature, he always looks out for the chil
dren and the fireworks when any celebra
tion is going on. A good many stories are
told about him,and some of them are worth
repeating. He weqt out target shooting
once with a party of a dosen or soand be
fore beginning to firethrew off a new light
overcoat which he wore, folded it up and
laid it on the stump of a tree near the tar
gt. When the shooting once began it
did not take Shields long to discover that
he was the one man who was doing any
thing like shooting. As some of the
others were noted as marksmen and par
ticularly fine shots at that distance
Shields became highly elated. Again and
again he stepped up and made good
scores, laughing at the miserable shooting
of his cunlpanions, for not a single shot
fired by them struck the bull's.eye oreven
the target. It was with a great deal of
pride, therefore, that Shields, when the
firing had ended, strutted down to the tar
get and began to point out his shots.
When he walked over to pick up Ihis coat
that beautiful and gorgeous sprin gar
ment was in so many tatters that it fell
to pieces. Each marksman, save Shields
alone, had made his target the overcoat.
On the eve of the Fourth of July in Ma
lone, where Shields lives, active preparae
tions were making for the celebration of
the "glorious Fourth." Of course Shields
was at the head of so patriotic a move
ntent. This and other things incidental
to such festivities kept him down town
rather late that night. and to conciliate
his wife he bought her a silk umbrella
with a massive silver handle. With this
under his arm he stalked about superin
tending preparatiolns for the coming day.
Some one suggested that they fire the old
cannon which had stood on the green
since the war of 1812, and Shields eagerly
caught at the idea. While he himself was
priming the old gun to touch it of, a wag
picked up the new umbrella and shoved
it into the mouth of the cannon. Shields
himself had the pleasure and honor of
touching oR the cannon, and a howl of
dismay came from his throat when he saw
his magnificent umbrella flaming like a
skyrocket, whissng through the air. If
any medium were necessary that night to
conelliate his wife, the peace-offering was
not a silver-handled umbrella.
Was Columbus a Jew.
Frlms the .ewishl World.
Jews figure prominently in the history
of the discovery of America. The plans
and calculations for Columbus's exlx;
dition were largely the work of two He
brew astronomners and mnathematicans.
Two Jews were also employed as inter
preters by Columbus. and one of them,
Luis de Torres, was the first European to
set foot in the New World. When (ol
mllnlus sighted the Island of San Salva
dor he imagined he was approaching a
portion of the East Asiatic coast and lI
sent Torres. who was engaged for his
knowledge of Arabic, ashore to make
inquiries of tlHe natives. It was probh
ably this Torres who was the Madrid Jew
to wihom Columbus bequeathed half a
mark of silver in his will. Another cur
lous fact is that it has been curiously sug
gested-by Mr. Delitsesh,we believe -that
Columbus himself was a Jew.or of Jewish
birth. The name of Christopher was fre
quently adopted by converts, while the
surnale C(olon helonged to a distinguished
family of Jewish scholars. ('hrastopher's
father, Diego, bore originally the Jewish
name Jacob, which sounds surprisingly
like a Shem Kadens. Perlhaps duriug the
conling celebrationl some Jewish scholarn
in Italy will make inquiry illto the validity
of this daring suggestion.

bring the transactions in the unlisted de

marked by extreme dullness, but in the
