Minnesota Alumni Want Their Old U.
Team to Come and Play
Spokane, Wash., Oct. 23.—Minne
sota alumni living in Washington,
Idaho Oregon and Montana, backing
J. M. Lilligren, manager of the Ever
green state's football squad, and 60
graduates of the Gopher state col
lege now residens of Spokane, are
boosting for a post-season football
game between Minnesota and Wash
ington in Spokane this fall, and there
is every indication just now that ar
rangements will be completed to puil
off the contest at Recreation Park at
the close of the regular season.
Donald S. Blair, assistant cereal
ist at the Washington State College,
| Pullman, a graduate of Minnesota,
says that Frank Reed, manager of
football for Minnesota, favors the
proposition, and if the slight pre
judice agains nost-season games :s
overcome there will be no difficulty
in arranging the details. General
plans have already been made for
bringing the faculty and student
body of 1,500 from Pullman, and
excursions from various parts of
Eastern Washington, Northern Ida
ho, Western Montana, Northeastern j
Oregon and Southeastern British Co
lumbia are talked of, while it is ex
pected the Puget Sound and Pacific
coast cities will also send' delega
tions in the event of a game. Lilli
gren has received letters from sev
eral hundred alumni of Minnesota in
the northwest, and they are heartily
in favor of bringing Minnesota's
team to this city.
The football season in the Pacific
Northwest, to open October 4, gives
promise of being the most interest

this part of the country. Seven
state universities and colleges and
athletic clubs will contend for hon

Lamb - Davis Co. _ Brings. Action
Against Farmers Who Fulled
Runaway Logs from River.
When the Lamb-Davis log boom
broke near Leavenworth some
months ago dwellers along the We
natchee river reaped a rich harvest
of valuable timber. They saw the
1 runaway logs and put out in skiffs
| and caught them.
Wenatchee people themselves were
not slow to take advantage of the
situation, and hundreds of valuable
logs, good for lumber and fuel, were
rescued from the racing Columbia,
dragged ashore and converted into
coin of the realm.
Suits Commence.
Rumor at the time stated that at
least $750,000 worth of logs of all
kinds escaped from the Leavenworth
corporation and floated down stream.
The Lamb-Davis Co., through its
attorneys, Reeves & Reeves, has
been quietly gathering evidence in
the matter, and this week has filed
suit against Jay Jones, a farmer
living two or three miles above We
natchee, and R. A. Brown of Moni
jtor, for the recovery of the value
of logs alleged to have been the
j property of the logging corporation,
and to have been unlawfully con
verted by these two men. The dam
ages claimed in each case is $210.00.
Attorneys Corbin and Kemp have
been retained by Mr. Brown and by
the other defendant, Jones. They
will probably endeavor to show that

300 Utiles pa Horseback.

horseback. They went from here

to Quincy, spending the night there;
from Quincy to Beverley, thence
down the river towards the Priest
Rapids country, across to Yakima,up
to Ellensberg and home over the
mountains. The pair of travelers
struck the old Ellensberg trail only
to find it closed by fences in many
places, which necessitated wide de
tours and a great loss of time. They
reached the crest of a mountain
from which they could see the lights
of Wenatchee about 6 o'clock at
night; but being off the trail it
seemed inadvisable to continue on
in the darkness, so they camped on
the mountain side for the night, and
finished the home journey next
morning. The distance of over 300
miles was covered, in eight days.
j "The several irrigation projects
we saw included some fine tracts of
land; but the really good land is
just as expensive as Wenatchee val
ley soil. The tracts that are cheap
usually have something the matter
with them or they wouldn't be
cheap. The Handford land is al
right, but it's about 40 miles off the
railroad; you have to go to it by
steamer on the river.

Picturesque Character of an Almost
Vanished Type—"Uncle Ned"
Paine of the Old Trail.
There passed through Wenatchee
yesterday a man wdose life is linked
with the past—a survivor of the
days when trains were not and the
horse was the hope of the country.
It was Ned Paine—"Uncle Ned
people call him.
Forty-five years ago "Ned" Paine
was one of the best known stage
drivers on the pacific coast, famous
from Portland to Sacramento as one
of the most skillful and fearless
of the brave band of men who han
dled the four and six-horse teams on
the California and Oregon trail.
Hold-ups were common in those
days, and it was considered no dis
grace to "stand and deliver," pas
sengers and all. "I have carried all
the way from $100,000 to $250,000
in gold bricks, in the big boom days,
but we always carried a heavy guard
on such occasions," said the hale
and hearty old stager yesterday.
"Two men usually rode ahead, two
sat armed on top of the coach, and
,two more followed about 100 yards
behind, always on the watch. I once
had my lead horse shot by a high
way man. He ran 90 yards at full
speed, shot through the heart before
tie fell. Those were stirring days,
'way back in the early '60's, almost
a quarter of a century before the
railroad was finished over the Sisk
you Pass, and overland stages put
out of commission. We used to
carry 11 passengers, with their bag
gage, on the one coach, and average
7 and 8 miles an hour, too."
The completion of the coast line
railroads along in the 'SO's put an
erernal quietus on stage lines, and
Ned Paine, with other pioneers of
the business, were forced further
north, still following the frontier.
In 1892 Uncle Ned landed in the
Okanogan country at Conconnully.
He is living there now, at the ripe
old age of 73, as fine a specimen of
well-preserved and vigorous man
hood as ever looked at the tails of
six horses and flecked a fly from the
pff-ear of a fractious leader".
He left last night for Spokane on
a brief "visit.

Spokane, Wash., Oct. 24.—Five
cashiers of banks in Spokane ani
Cheney, Wash.,, htve positively iden
tified R. C. Crosby, 60 years of age,
a widely known and respected dairy
rancher, liing near McMlnnvillo,
Ore., where he was arrested the
morning of October 20, as a shrewd
bond swindler, for whom the Pink
ertons have been searching almost
a quarter of a century. Officers of
the agency, representing the Ameri
can Bankers' and the Washington
State Bankers' associations, declare
they have evivdence showing that,
while operating as Oscar Will, H. O.
Hood and 20 other aliases, the aged
farmer succeeded in defrauding
banks from Nova Scotia to the Pa
cific coast, out of thousands of dol
lars yearly. Crosby was arrested on
the charge of defrauding the Wash
ington Trust company of |275, of
fering school bondfs purporting to
have been issued by District No. 4,
Camp Crook, S. D., the paper being
accompanied by a letter bearing the
signature of W. W. Brown, cashier
of the Little Missouri Bank of Camp
Crook. Both were found to be for
geries. The detectives found a
small typewriting machine and a
membership tag of the American
Bankers' association. They say
Crosby used the machine In filling
in the bonds. Crosby denies the
charge and has retained counsel to
make a fight for his release.

Washington, D. C, Oct. 23.—
Comptroller of the Currency Ridg
ley, in speaking of the financial sit
uation in New York today, said:
"My advices from New York this
morning are reassuring and the situ
ation there should now improve.
The storm has broken and the dam
age done without any failures of
the national banks, which have late
ly been criticized. The clearing
house confirms my reports that
these, banks are all solvent and is
standing by them. Their debit bal
ances at the clearing house this*
morning are less than I expected
and I understand one bank paid its
balance without help. The nation
al banks of the country generally
■ are in strong shape and there is not
j the slightest occasion for any alarm
jin regard to them. This is a time
for coolness and prudence and not
I for alarm."
