May be Taken up at Tonight's Meet
ing—Chief Brown May be Asked
a Few Questions.
Nettled at the insinuation that the
council is being played "horse" with
on the gambling situation in Walla
Walla, it was rumored on the streets
today that two members of the coun
cil will do a little probing into the
gambling question at tonight's meet
ing, and Chief Brown may be called
upon to tell what he knows about
slot machines being allowed to resume
business after the chief two weeks
ago had solemnly told the council
that he had ordered all slot ma
chines paying cash closed down
and that as far as he knew there was
not a gambling game running in Wal
la Walla.
The statement that orders were is
sued to proprietors of machines to
close down last Tuesday night upon
the return of Mayor Hunt to Walla
Walla, these councilmen say, if true,
looks suspicious and neeus a little ex
plaining. Not a councilmna would ad
mit today that there was anything
out of the ordinary coming up at to
night's meeting, lei alone the gam
bling question, but it is said that sev
eral members of the council are net
tled at the insinuation that the state
ment that all machines had been
closed down was made in order to
placate several members of the coun
cil who are anxious to see the anti
gambling law enforced in Walla Walla.
They say that if this is the truth
that a full investigation of alleged
violations of the anti-gambling law
is in order.
Look for Property Owners.
Property owners along Elm street
are expected to be on hand at to
night's meeting to protest against
lessening the width of the street when
it is paved. A large number of sig
natures to a protest have been se
cured and will be filed with the coun
cil tonight.

PENDLETON, Nov. 17.—Having
received a "tip" that gambling was
being conducted in the Rainier Beer
Hall, Chief of Police Coffman last
night raided the saloon and ar
rested 10 men, seven of whom were
engaged in a game of poker and the
other three were spectators of the
The seven men engaged in the
games were placed under arrest, as
were also three men who were watch

Danish Physician Negatives the Idea
of Terror for Last Moments.
LONDON. Nov. 17.—The great mys
tery of death is the subject of a book
by an eminent Danish physician, Dr.
Oscar Bloch, which Heinemann is to
publish soon. It is an exact and a
scientific inquiry into the phenomena
attending death and is based upon In
numerable examples in Dr. Bloch's
own experience. He negatives the pop

There is little likelihood of any
book attracting more attention here
during the present month than Her
bert Paul's "Life of Froude." which
Pittman & Sons will publish within
the next three weeks. Froude has
been so long in the pillory that "a
complete vindication of his career and
a refutation of all the attacks which
have been made upon him" will sup
ply a long-felt want. To Miss Froude,
the historian's daughter, and to Mrs.
Staeger Harrison, known better as
Lucas Malet. his niece, the volume
owes much material assistance, while
Lady Margaret Cecil has kindly per
mitted Mr. Paul to make copious ex
tracts from Froude's letters to her
mother. Countess Derby.
John Murray is to publish in two
volumes. "A History of the Papacy

is by a Danish writer, Dr. Nielsen,
bishop of Aalborg, and it forms part
of a larger work dealing with the gen

church during the nineteenth century.

Side With Merriwether.
ANNAPOLIS. Md., Nov. 17.—Mid
shipman Meriwether, Jr., who is to be
tried by court-martial by order of the
secretary of the navy, for engaging in
a fist fight with Midshipmen James R.
Branch, Jr., which caused the death of
Branch, was today discharged from
the" naval hospital, having recovered
from the blows delivered by the dead
Much sympathy is felt for Meri
wether, who is to be tried for man
slaughter. It is said by some that
there had been bad feeling between
the two midshipmen ever since Meri
wether, who was a class lower than
Branch, entered the institution, and
that Branch, in discharging his duties,
picked on the junior middy.

Fifteen scows ranging from 70 feet
to 124 feet in length wjl? be built at
the Supple shipyards at Portland for
the Northern Pacific Railway com
pany. The craft will be operated on
the Columbia and the Willamette
carrying material for the bridges
which will span the rivers. The larg
est vessel is to be 124 feet long and
32 feet wide. Eight of them will be
92 feet long and 26 feet across the
beam. In the outfit will be a pile
driver 70 feet in length.
A contract for the construction of
the vessels has been closed and it
calls for their completion early in
February, 1905.
John Kamm has sold the steamer G.
W. Walker to the Northern Pacific
Railway company, the consideration
not being made public. The vessel
will be used on the upper Columbia
river while the building of the north
bank road'is in progress. She will
be operated altogether as a freighter,
transporting material between the va
rious camps. It is also probable that
she will make frequent trips to Port
land for freight.
A number of other small vessels are
being built for the use of the con
tractors engaged in constructing the
new railroad down the north bank of
the Columbia. A small sternwheeler
has just been completed for the
Hover Townsite company of Hover.

ered on the steps of the Memorial

the success of the team. Captain Per
ringer of the football team replied,
saying that the members of the team
were grateful for the fine; farewell
and they were sure that the spirit it
put in the team would make them vic
torious. A large bunch of the co-eds
improvised a song to the team and
the boys joined in on the chorus. The
college yell was given repeatedly with
great spirit and a large number of the
students went down to the depot
with the team.
Retired Officers Rec?.ll Circumstances
Relating to Big Inheritance.
SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 17.—The
story of the Ords' claim to an estate
of $125,000,000 based on their descent
from King George IV. of England,
through his marriage to Mrs. Mary
Smythe Fitzherbcrt, was army gossip
20 years ago. It is revived now by the
claim of James Ord of Chicago to his
share in the estate, made public as a
result of discovery of papers in Lon
don validating the king's marriage.
"Sergeant-Major Van Goetze, Third
United States infantry, told me 20
years ago the story of General Ord, a
veteran of the civil war and head of
a family claiming millions in Eng
land," said Captain G. A. Delchementy,
U. S. A., retired, today.
"Von Goetze was a German count in
his own right and familiar with the
life history of European houses. I be
lieved the story then and believed it
later when I heard it again. I knew
Lieutenant James G. Ord, who was
killed in the battle .of San Juan Hill,
and his brother, who was interpreter
on General Shafter's staff during the
Cuban campaign. James Ord, as lam
informed, is of the same family.
"Sergeant Van Goetze. who told me
the story of King George's marriage
to Mrs. Fitzherbert, and the fact that
General Ord was his son, died at Fort
Morgan, Alabama. He was then an
orderly sergeant. The story is Known
in the army by men old in the service."

PARIS. Nov. 17. —Considerable dis
cussion has been aroused by the an

the painter of portraits, describes It.
It is to be an open air picture of the
kaiser wearing his hunting uniform.
He says the kaiser is an excellent mod
el, posing very patiently.

HELENA, Mont., Nov. 17.—Repre
senting himself as the personal agent
of the Rothschilds, and through hav
ing married the widow of a wealthy
former president of Argentina, with
money in any amount for investment
in mines, J. P. Walker is charged with
having ingratiated himself into the
good graces of operatives near Boul

thorough tests, by taking carload ship
ments to the smelter, as well as su

will be prosecuted on other charges.
Censorship Plan Stage.
LIVERPOOL, Nov. 17.—At a meet
ing of the Liverpool city justices Sam
uel Smith. M. P., proposed a resolu
tion "that managers of theaters and
music halls be advised to abstain
from allowing representations inju- j
rious to public morals, and that they
be asked to discourage the display of j
posters and notices tending to the j
same ends."
The resolution was rejected, the
opinion being that it cast unwarranted
reflection upon Liverpool theatres and
music halls. It was resolved, however,
to send a copy of the resolutions to
licensees and to express the hope that
managers would loyally observe the
rules which stipulate that 'nothing
shall be acted, represented, recited or
sung which is profane, licentious or in
