Phone Main 96 Where Prices Are Reasonable FAKIRS TURN UP PEOPLE OF GRAYS HARBOR ARE "STUNG" FOR $60,000 Trick of tlc Smooth Ones Supposed to Have Been the Same That Was Worked Some Time Ago in Uma tilla County local Residents Dropped Some $40,000, It Is Said. If it is true that "misery loves company," a broad smile should flit across and settle upon the face of more than one resident of Umatilla county. The reason for this is plain when explained. It will be remem bered that a few years ago, residents of this section of the state were fleec ed out of $40,000 by some smooth fa kirs who were selling kitchen cabi nes. Since that time the words "kitchen cabinets" have been suf ficient to start a fight, but it may be some satisfaction to those who were "stung" to know that residents of the Grays Harbor country have gone them some better and have parted with $60,000 to learn the same scheme. The following story in the Port land Journal from Hoquiam contains a few different names, but the trick is exactly the same and it Is believed that most of the men who worked it are the very same who were here: Citizens of Hoquiam and Aberdeen who within the past two months have put up $60,000 in cash for state and county rights to sell a tin device known as the "Success Kitchen Cab inet," have acknowledged that they have been swindled, and that their money Is gone forever. The victims charge that the agents who came in to Chehallis county, ostensibly to sell the cabinets from house to house, had in mind a gigantic scheme. Warrants have been Issued for the arrest of five general agents, who are gone, no one knows where. These agents' names are given as H. D. Martin. C. E. Bean, D. H. Styles, John Doe Montgomery and John Doe Styles. Wealthy People Lose. Hoquiam was victimized for from $20,000 to $25,000; Aberdeen citizens are out from $35,000 to $40,000. The Hoquiam losers number from 25 to 30 persons, some of whom can easily spare the money and others who cannot. The Aberdeen losers num ber nearly as many, including sever- STOLEN!

TWO WAYS Of getting glasses one is to let some slick tongued fakir who peddles through the country come Into your town and sell you a pair, and run the risk of ruining your sight. This is easily done, for he knows how to fit a glass that makes you see splendidly today but to morrow you find that you cannot stand to wear them at all. Then you turn to ;, ur peddler he Is gone.

Dozens of young men who went out from Grays Harbor to act as sales agents are coming back, poorer In pocket, and declaring that whenever they went they found that the terri tory had been sold and worked and that when they tried to retail the cabinets they were promptly branded as frauds. The victims charge that the agents who came here four or five months ago claimed to have sold in this coun ty over 900 cabinets, whereas, as a matter of fact, there were shipped into this county not to exceed 200 cabinets and that the cabinets were given away or traded for board or clothing to create the impression that they were In demand. Mr. Bean Shows Thein "How." While the cabinets were selling, the agents would manage to say to busi ness and professional men whom they hoped to Interest: "You must meet Mr. Bean: he's a fine man and is doing a fine business " If the local man met Mr. Bean, the latter at once began to tell in glow ing terms of the possibilities for wealth which the county and state rights to sell the cabinet offered. Parts of Montana, Idaho and Wash ington were for sale. The whole of California could be had if taken quick ly, for other capitalists, it was declar ed, had their eyes on that golden state. Rights were available on these terms: The sale of cabinets In cer tain territories, was to be limited and the buyers were to put up $1 for each cabinet to be sold In that territory. Then for each cabinet ordered from the factory. $6.50 was to be sent to headquarters. The cabinets were to retail at $16.75. Citizens crowded each other in their eagerness to seize desirable counties in Washing ton, Oregon and Idaho. $15,000 for Oregon Rights. Oregon was used as Rean's trump card. He announced that Oregon was for sale for $15,000 and that he pro posed to put up one third of the mon ey himself. His talk interested the brother-in-law of an Aberdeen bank er, who put up the $10,000. Bean took the $10,000, went to Portland to or ganize the state, and hasn't been heard of since. The sale of Oregon caused a wild desire for the purchase of the rights for California, and so the California Kitchen Cabinet company of Hoquiam was organized. The incorporators thought they had a good thing in Cal ifornia and launched plans to go on the ground and to put 12,000 cabi nets In the kitchens of that state. They had paid $12,000 for the privil ege. The headquarters of the Chicago Kitchen Cabinet company are In St. Louis and the partners operating it are said to be Curtice & Rosser, both wealthy men, the former of Louisville and the latter from Dallas. Texas. They rate up Al and letters to bank ers in their cities brought the replies that they were all right and doing a fine business. Endless Get-Rlch-Qalck Scheme, It Is not at all likely that the men can be reached, for they will place all blame on the agents. Hoquiam men claim to have proof, however, that in 1905, Rosser was himself an agent, and that after he had sold territory he would tell the buyer that there was nothing In selling cabinets and advise him to get right out and sell territory. Th" scheme was. of course, an end less chain get-ri'h-quick scheme, as long as the territory held out. The cabinet is made of tin and Is designed to sit on the back of a kitchen table. It has compartments for flour, sugar, coffee, spices, etc. is compact and attractive, but hardly looks to be worth the price set on It.

Michaels and a few minutes later the couple were made man and wife, the ceremony being performed at the Hotel Bowman. Henry Taylor is in town today from the farm. SAVED !

Though the Oregon delegation at the national irrigation congress is plainly friendly to the Plnchot ele ment and Ideas yet yesterday after noon the delegation by a plurality of one vote endorsed Ex-Governor Good ing, of Idaho, and a reputed antl I'lnchot man, for president of the as sociation. Members of the Oregon delegation were called together In caucus im mediately after the adjournment yes terday afternoon. The questions of the state's endorsement for the presi dency of the association and also fog the next place of meeting were taken Up, There were three recognized can didates for. the presidency, Gooding, Loverldge, of California, and Fowler of Arizona. Advocates of each can didate spoke briefly in favor of their men and It at once became plain that some feeling existed, the delegation being divided by the Plnchot and antl Plnchot line. One of the Loverldge men declared It would be Inconsistent for the delegation to endorse Gooding because, so he asserted, Gooding was disposed against the Plnchot policies. This allegation was denied by Grooks of Ontario, and by A. King Wilson of Portland. When the ballot was taken It was found that Gooding had a plurality of one vote, the ballot standing Gooding 18; Loverldge, 17; Fowler two. Ob jection was at once raised because no canldate had a majority. However chairman Bennett ruled that Ooodlnn had won. His decision was then ap pealed from and though a majority voted to reverse the chair the motion was declared lost for lack of a two thirds vote. The Oregon delegation endorsed Pueblo, Colo., as the place for the next meeting. In and About Pendleton cv Track Foreman. Chas.

They will make their home north of Helix, where the groom la engaged in farming. The bride is well known in Pendleton, having been in attendance at the city school last year. City Steam Roller In Trouble. To see a powerful ten-ton steam roller standing on the street unable to turn a wheel or help Itself In any particular is rather an unusual sight. However, Pendleon's roller Is at pres ent In just such a position. It seems that the roller was loaned by the city to roll Pine street, which these gen tlemen had a contract to grade and which was finished, all but the roll ine. A Mr. Brown was In charge of the machine and In some manner backed off one side of the street !n such a way that one of the large large wheels mired down In the soft earth which caused the roller to tip to one side and the entire weight of the rear end to rest on the fire box. It will require considerable work to dig out and Jack up a heavy machine of this kind and for the pesent the thing Is abandoned. It will be re membered that this same rolled drop ped through the Main street bridge while attempting to cross that struc ture some lltle time ago and required the aid of several teams and steam engines to again get It on the street from Its bed at the bottom of the riVer. At the time the roller took this tumble Into he river two men went down with It, but as If by a mir acle neither was hurt. It Is reported that the men on the machine when It backed off the street yesterday had a narrow escape as the roller almost turned over on Its side.

Inroads of the cocaine habit, which the Courier commission has found to bo the American curse as opium Is the curse of China and hemp of India, have suddenly devel oped Into a new and ominous phase of the race problem in tho United States, particularly in the south. "Cocaine now ranks with whiskey as the chief provocative of assaults and consequent lynching bees In the south," declaro Charles W. Collins and John Day of the commission in n preliminary report Jqust published In full by the Chicago magazine "Everyday Life." They add "Already among the 'fiends' and the policemen who have to deal with them there is talk of 'the new field.' The phrase, with its commercial suggestion, comes from the dealers In the drugs, retail ers and perhops wholesalers also. Kerry 'fiend,' It should be added, Is more than likely to be a peddler of the 'stuff,' taking his commission in the same misery that he distributes. This 'new field' is among the brutul Ized negroes of the south, who, de nied easy access to liquor by the pro hibition movement, are turning to drugs as a substitute." The commission quotes from Hampton's Magazine an article by Juduge Harris Dickson of Vlcksburg. Miss , who told" of a contractor who ordered a pound of cocaine, to the as tonishment of the salesman to whom the order was given who expostulated saying: "No man on earth can pos sibly want that much cocaine." The contractor reiterated the order. "A man who deliberately puts co caine Into a negro Is giore dangerous than he who would inoculate a dog with hydrophobia," commented Judge Dickinson. "The deadly drug arouses every evil passion, gives tho negro superhuman strength, and destroys his sense of fear. Yet the steamboat negro and the levee negro will not work without It. So the levee con tractor makes his camp look like a cross section of hell, but he gets his dirt moved." FIFTY CHILDREN FAINT IN G. A. R. PARADE Salt Lake, Aug. 12. More than 50 bildren fainted from heat and ex citement in the great annual G. A. R. parade here today. The little girls and boys had formed a living flag In the parade, wearing clothes of red white and blue, and forming the stars and stripes. The heat was too much for them, and scores fell to the street. The ambulances were busy carrying children an I veterans to the hospital this afternoon. The long march proved too much for many of the gray haired wearers of the blue, who were overcome with fatigue and heat. The start of the parade was an nounced by steam whistles In all parts of the city. The Fifteenth Infantry was at the head of the procession, and It received a tremendous sheer .li lt swung pnst the Brigham Young monument into Main street and passed before the reviewing stand.
