More races have been won upon Cleveland's in recent meets than upon all the other makes put together Amone Cleveland riders who have rid den their popular mount to victory are the following: Champion Terrill. Chas Wells. Harry Terrill, Whitman, Mott. Crafts, Vincent, Rues, Williamson, the Noonan brothers and many more too numerous to mention. The Cleveland is as Strong as it is Fast: that has been proven time after time in Honolulu. Why buy another machine when you can get the best for the same price.

Parks, the Portland man, who is sus pected of shipping opium in the crack ers invoiced to the Washington Feed Company sometime ago, is pretty close ly watched in Portland, and the author ities there are doing all they can to prosecute him on a criminal charge. The Customs authorities are in receipt of a communication frcm the Portland Cracker Company, which throws a lit tle more light on the transaction. When Mr. Wittenberg called at Parks hotel, the clerk showed him a letter addressed to Parks, enclosed in an envelope bearing the card of a Seattle lawyer. Whether this man had been retained by Parks or whether it was merely a friendly letter could not be ascertained. The latter is probably the case, as Parks formerly lived in Seattle. Parks was formerly connected with the Puget Sound Machinery Company, and was under suspicion in Seattle of being engaged in dealing in contra band opium. Mr. Hobson, clerk at r.he Grand Central Hotel, in Portland, stal ed to Mr. Wittenberg that he had had business dealings for the past five or six years and that they had worked together in 1890. . lie had not seen Parks, however, "between February, 1S95, after his return from Honolulu, and October, 1896. On the occasion of his last visit he seemed much worried about something, as though he expected some one to come in and find him. He told Hob- son that if anyone came in and asked for him, to say that he was not in, even if he was standing in the office. From further investigation in Seattle, posi tive evidence was obtained connecting Parks with a previous invoice of crack ers bought from the Seattle branch of the Portland Cracker Company, and shipped by him to Honolulu. It is not believed that more than two lots of crackers containing opium were ship ped here; the first came through all right and the second was captured. The following letter was received by Deputy Collector McStocker yesterday, which gives other details in connec tion with the case: PORTLAND, Ore.. Dec. 21. 1S9G. Mr. F. I J. McStocker, Deputy Collector of Customs, Honolulu, II. I.: Iear Sir: We have your favor bearing date of December Cth, inclosing piece of cardboard which you state v.as found in case of tins containing opium, and which we herewith return for your further dis position. We have carefully noted the contents of your letter, and while we were already informed of the seizure from the tele grams from San Francisco, on arrival of the steamship there, we assure you that it was very disagreeable information for us. The cardboard that you inclose is similar to what we use in packing our tins, and other crackers in any of our packages. By investigating any of our cases in Honolulu containing soda crack ers, you will lind the same kind of card board. That the opium was put in the cases here at Portland, there is no doubt in our minds. However, we are positive it was not put In at our factory. Mr. Wit tenberg has found the man who hauled the cases from the party to whom we sold them, to the building where the change seems to have been made from crackers to opium, and has also found the man who hauled the packages, after they were fixed up, from this place to the steamer. The man rarks, who has been men tioned in connection with the entire deal, seems to have done it alone in Portland. lhe packages which we are satisfied con tained the opium came from San Francis co to Portland by express. We have run this matter down, and find they were shipped to a man by the name of James II. Stilson, in Portland, by some parties in San Francisco on October 21. We 'have written our manager in San Francis co to endeavor to lind out who delivered the goods to Wells, Fargo & Co. They were packages bound in tuch thongs as are used by Chinese in preparing goods for shipment. This man Stilson," and James 11. l'arks are the same parties; of this we are satisfied. Our Mr. Wittenberg had a personal in terview with this man Parks. He ad mitted buying the crackers of the Ore gon German Iiakery, who in turn had bought them of us; he admits taking them to this house, and really admits tak.i g them from the house to the steamer and shipping them in our name, but he does not admit that he put opium in them or that there was opium in them. We are using every effort to take action against him here, but it seems as yet we can not commit him on anything criminal in this country. We regret very much he is out of your reach, as we are satisfied that the evidence we have would certain ly hold him. We trust that some of the information given you will assist you over there. Of course, at this end we cannot tell wheth er this man Morris is implicated or not. It would look reasonable that he was, as this man Parks was formerly a book keeper for Morris & Co., at Ilonolui': and -v wotld seem that they micrht ha made an arrangement when he left Mc ris & Co., and came to this country to forward with our shipment, opium if he could possibly get it in. It would look to us that Mr. Morris had r.ctifi. Parks that we were going to mak s'p ont on the Mount Lebanon and that t would be a good opportuniy to put son). f the opium if he could get it, which of c urs he proceeded to do. We hope that :lr. Morris is not guilty. We have always considered him an honorable yo ;-. ar. We shall take every precavf' t this inconvenience in the fut r- . "-.-ill use your suggestions in ma! ;? our bill of lading. We fear that our business '.. - vi in jured on the Islands for n. tn come, and this means conr: !r 1 ! Jr?s to u. We thank you ver ih for sending us the cardboard. V Imve tried to find out here if anyone is n- quainted with this man "Harry Reeves," or what the hyroolyphics mean on the e x: " -:ucl, but as are already Informal by Mr. Parks, he had charge r,f this matter. We iiii-j mat uir gonus were not taKcn irom "i i.iii-ji. wnicn woiui reauy ie an Irnpossjfdiity. the way matters are hand led here by us. We can see no way that we can further assist you in explaining me message on the paper. There is no such party here that wt- can find who is known as Harry Peeves. It seems that it was a "Dr." Reeves. There is such a man here as Dr. Paul Reeves, but we nanny think he knows anything about it Would you kindly inform us bv return mail if the opium was stamped or un stamped. If we had the information here that it was unstamped opium we could arrest mis man l'arks at once, but this information we have not got. Very respectfullv vours. PORTLAND CRACKER CO. IT.' WITTENBERG.
