S. Grant Marquam and C. C. Thompson,
who are charged with unprofessional con
duct, fraud and corruption. - there are
more lawyers than three in Oregon wbo
should be disbarred; and tbe association has
begun a good work. If it will take another
step, and declare it "unprofessional" for an
attorney to perpetrate a manifest and mis
chievous fraud and injustice upon the pub
lie by turning loose unquestioned criminals
throogb ohioanery and sharp manipulation
of technicalities, it will do a still better
, work.
I THE EXPRESS ROBBERY.
The Preliminary Examination
Otis Savage and Ralph Giboiis
For tbe Crime.
Wednesday's Report.
Justice Davis, yesterday afternoon,
adjourned the "examination of the ex
press robbers from the building in which
he usually considers his temple of jus
tice to the court room. As soon as the ex
tortion case was disposed of the case of
the state vs. Otis Savage was called, and,
after some legal sparring on technical
ties, an order was made by the court ex
cluding all witnesses from the court
room, both for the state and defendant,
except the one who was testifying.
The state was represented by District
Attorney Jayne and the. defendant by
H. S. Wilson. After all preliminaries
were arraigned the court adjourned un
til half past 7 o'ciock when the exami
nation was continued, The first witness
on the stand was Mr. F. N. Hill, the
agent of the Pacific Express Co. in this
city. He recounted the facts of hauling
the treasure box on the night in which
the robbery was committed from the
train to tho office, placing it inside the
door, and then proceeding to the pott-
office with the mail. There was nothing
new drawn out in his testimony,
with which our people are not already
familiar.
Mr. James Blakely was next called
and he Was followed by Mr. M. A
Moody. The testimony of these wit
neases was in- reference to the time of
the robbery, footprints leading from the
office, and that these were measured
and patterns cut. from them. This
ended the examination last night, and
the court adjourned until 9 o'clock this
morning.
This morning, when tbe case was
called, the justice held a preliminary ex
amination of both defendants at the same
time, Otis Bavage and Ralph Gibons
Judge Bennet was counsel for Gibons
and Zera Snow of Portland was added to
the counsel far the state. -
Chas. Tibbetts was the first witness
called, and he gave testimony regarding
his duties in the express office. He was
followed by Mr. Simmons, the detective,
who detailed his experiences in tracing
the stolen specie to its hiding place.
At about ll:30 Frank Klein was called
in by the state. After being sworn in he
told how Otis Sayage, Ralph Gibons and
himself had planned tbe robbery- Ralph
Gibons was at first not inclined to take
any part in the robbery because, as he
said, he had a family to look after. Then
Frank testified that Gibons said, "Well I
have to rob some one before spring."
The signals which Gibons was to give
in case tusney was in the treasury box
were agreed, upon. On the night of the
robbery Frank testified that be went to
bed about V o'clock, and that Savage woke
him shortly alter ten, and informed bim
that coin was to arrive that nigul by ex
press and that they could get it. After
hearing this Frank got up and they both
proiteeded east 00 Third street until they
came 10 Court street,when they proceeded
north. Otis stopped in at Wisemans for a
few moments, and Frank went down near
Maelz & Pundt's. They again met near
the corner of Second and Court streets.
While there Frank says that Ben Eben
and some one else passed them, but Frank
did not know who this other person was.
After these two had gone by,Mr. Allaway,
of the D. P. and A. Co. went pasC Then
they proceeded ea&t in the alley bacK of
the old Sun office until they came to the
walx across the ailey on Washington
slreet,where they got the iron with which
the box was opened. After waiting a
short time the express wagon came up
with Frank Hill and Ralph Gibons on
the seat. After the express matter bad
been put in the express office Ralph Gib
bons gave the signals agreed upon, and
he repeated them as the express wagon
drove off. As coon as the wagon was out
of sight Frank and Otis came out of hid
ing and proceeded to . the express office.
Frank unlocked the door of the express
office with a key which he had fashioned
after the one given him by Gibons. Once
inside the office they hunted up tbe treas
ury box, and alter two attempts broke it
open, t here were five sacks of coin in
the box. Klein and Savage took four
sacks and went north on Washington
street until they came to the alley, which
one of them ran up and dropped a card
back of J. O. Mack's. They then went
around the Cosmopolitan hotel to an old
shanty where the money was thrown. After
doing this they went to Frank's home and
retired. Frank was asked about tbe iron
he used in prying open the box, wben
court adjourned till 1 :30.
At 1:30 Frank Klein was again placed
on the stand. He identified the iron
and also tbe shoes he wore on the night
of the robbery. He threw the shoes
nnder the sidewalk back of Stabling &
Williams' because they were worn out.
The state here turned the witness over
to the defense. The cross examination
was taken up by Attorney Wilson. On
cross examination Klein testified that he
made tbe iron about three weeks after
the trip to Badger lake and the bar was
under the cross walk for about five weeks
before the robbery was committed. He
hid part of the money in his father's
yard, but no one knew it -was there ex
cept himself. He knew nothing about
the $200 which was missing. Just as we
go to press Klein ia relating where the
money was hid.
' Thursday's Beport.
Klein waa on the stand yesterday wben
we went to press, fie was not cross ex
amined very severely by the defense; all
his answers were straight for a word but he
seemed to besitste a little before saying
anything. Tbe prosecution wound np by
asking the following question.
" JUein nave you told everything yon
know about this robbery in court." Klein
immediately answered, "Yes, sir."
Chris Bills waa then called in. He testi
fied that he held no official position at the
time of the robbery, had lived in The Dalles
a number ot yeara and was well acquainted
with both Savage and Gibbons. When he
was asked in regard to a conversation he
had heard between Savage and Klein
he stated that about a week ago he waa de
livering milk in the vicinity of Second and
Liberty street when he saw Savage and
Klein coming towards him irom Klein's
house. Bills then went Into Al Bettingen'a
yard and listened to what. Savage and Klein
were talking about. When aaked what he
beard, he replied that Klein said, "I am
afraid they are onto ua" that waa about all
of the conversation that be could catch
Thia happened more than a week ago, or
about a week after the robbsry waa com'
mitted.
On cross examination Bills said that he
was in the northeast corner of Bettingen'a
yard lying down, that it waa very dark that
night, bnt that be could easely recognize
Sayage and Klein. He even heard the
conversation at about 8 o'clock in the even
ing. He was then asked if he had told
everything he knew abont the robbery, and
answering that be had he was dismissed.
Mrs. Klein was tbe next witness called.
She testified that she was tho mother of
Frank Klein and that be went to bed some
time between 8 and 8:30. Savage came
about 10 JO and woke Frank. They went
1 away together. On cross examinatian she
and that Savage had been staying at ber
house for some time bat, did not remember
of jait how long. The first she knew that
her son was implicated in the robbery, was
after his confession last Sunday. She did
not know- that any money was buried in
her yard prior to that time. She neither
saw it buried nor taken away. Did not
know the men were searching for the money
when they first came to tbe house. She
was then asked in regard to Savage s prop
erty and stated that abe knew nothing
about it. Then tbe following question
waa aaked: ''Do vou hold title to any of
Savase'a Dronertv" She answered "No
sir; not that 1 know 01. one am noi y
claim to any of his land on thia side of the
rivor or on he other aide, neither did she
ay claim to any of his notea or horses. Sh
was asked if she had any feeling in tbe
case outside of her son, and she answered.
I have no feeling only for my aon to get
out of this as easily as possible."
Mr. Allaway was then called. He came
np on the train from Portland the night of
the robbery. He got off on the aouth aide
and went east on First strtet to the east
side of Court, wben he turned north on
Conrt street and saw Savage and Klein
near Second street, standing with their
backa ud against Harris' store. Thev were
near aome empty dry goods boxea. They
were about a hundrei feet from the alley
Mr. Lvtle was then examined, and said
that he was agent for the O, R. 4 N. Co.,
and understood that Kalph Gibona had a
kev to the exoress office. Sunday, after
the robbery, he asked Gibons for the key,
but he said be did not have it.
Frank Hill was recalled and tis'ified
that Gibons was given a key to the office
so that he (Uibousl could Bit into toe
office to wake Tibbeta for the trains. He
told the court about the number of pack
ages that arrived that eyeoing, and that
Gibona helped him unload. Then he re
peated tbe story about the dropping of
the treasury box by Gibons, and other
things that happened in the office on the
night of the robbery.
Sheriff Driver was the next witness,
After telling what be did when he was
notified of the robbery, the prosecution
asked him to describe tbe manner in which
he obtained the length of Savage's foot
This, he said, be did by placing a stick on
the sole of Savage's foot, wbile ha
(Savage) was lying down on a bencb.
On cross examination Bennet held a shoe
in front of Driver.'and ssked him if be could
by plaoing the stick along the sole, tell
whetl erit was longer or shorter. Driver
said it was shorter. The sheriff described
the footprints left in the alley.
M. A. Moodv waa called and he also
described tbe footprints.
Beckwith and Simmons were both re
called, bnt neither-one remembered what
became of the papera with which they
measured the footprints.
A. S. Bonnet, attorney for the defense,
waa then called, but as he did not possess
the articles which were supposed to be in
his po'ses-iioo be was dismissed.
Tbe defense did not oall in any witnesses.
Both the State and the defense rested the
case without argument.
Gibons and Savage's bail was reduced to
83000. Thus ended one of the greatest
preliminary examinations that was ever
held in Tbe Dalles.
Death am Old Pioneer.
Mr. Henry Ulerisb, aged about 63 years,
died at the county hospital thia morning.
He came to The Dalles in 1863, and baa

Ilr. JekyU and Mr. Hyde.
Mr. Louis Stephenson's great work was
the creation of the dual charaotara Dr. JekyU
and Mr. Hyde, illustrative of the good and
bad in each human being. Perhaps one can
see every day an example of this donble
ness in humanity, and Mr. Stevenson baa
surrounded his creation with snob intensely
interesting incidents that tbe romanoe is
the most ' attractive reading matter. Mr,
R. E French's interpretation of the charac
ter ia all that could be desired, and the
manner in which it is placed on the boards
shows that an artist is at ' the head of the
management, It will be played one night
only in this oity,' next Monday, Nov, 5th.
ITEMS IN BRIEF
Eugene Qaard: A few days since a man
and woman, giving toe name or Davis,
hired a team at the livery stable of Morse
& Son, at Springfield, saying he wanted to
go to Waterville, where he bad an uncle,
As he did not return in a couple of daya the
proprietor became alarmed and informed
the officers of the affair. Constable ?Lint n
haa learned that the man passed t.ie Mc-
Kenzie bridge on his way to Kaatern Oregon
Tbe officers in Eastern Oregon hays been
informed of the matter and descriptions
furnished, and the I allow will piobably be
arrested in due time.
Constable Randle acid out the effects of
the "Oregon Cave Improvement Co." at
Grant's Pass last Sautrday for JC0 These
consisted of a lot of camping ntensils and
the right, title and loteiest to the land
ab nt tbe entrance to the caves. "This
cave enterprise," remarks the Courier,
"thus adds another link to the chain of en
terprises built on j iwbone which have gone
to the wall at the expenses of our business
men. There can be no question about these
caves being a wonderful sight, but the lies
told about them h&ve only retarded their
development, and it will probably be aome
time before a railroad is built to them.
Tidings.
The Northern Pacific has issued an order
defining the territory of general freight
agents, as follows: "S. G. F ultou, first as
sistant general freight agent, Portland, Or,,
in charge of traffic west of the Idaho-Wash
ington state hue, including lia,bo points
reached via the opokane & f slouse branch;
J. B. Baird second assistant general freight
agent.-St, Paul, in charge of Asiatio tr the
and such other duties as may be assigned to
him as general assistant. Robert Rintoul.
division freight agent, St. Paul, in charge
of traffic in North Dakota west of the Mis
souri river, Montana and Idaho, except;
points in Idaho reached via tbe Spokane &
Palouae branch,"
Mr. J. S. Fish, N. J. Sinnott and Walter
Klindt retnrLed yesterday from a tew days'
hunt up Hood River valley. Their return
without any large game was a sore dissa-
poinment to their many friends. Saturday
when they started 00 the bunt, we were
told that we might expect to see tbe deer
and bear market flooded, but as yet we
haye not seen any sign of either, although
Nick claims to have seen some signs of bear
wbile in tbe mountains. Whenever any of
the parties wbo made np the hunt are asked
about it they act like the detectives, before
Klein's confession. It is whispered around
tout a couple of birds and a few fish were
brought home, but we cannot vouch for
that.
Jos. H. Hunt's Close Call.
Fossil Journal.
Jas. S. Hunt had a narrow eFcape from
drowning in the John Day Tuesday laat,
while returning home from Sboofly with D.
C. Gilliiand, constable, V. T. Matlock of
Lone Rock and Harry Johnson. The
party excepting Harry, wbo is a partner of
Mr. Hunt's, succeeded in fording the river
at tbe mouth of Horseshoe. Harry, who
was formerly a sailor in the British navy
but bad neyer learned to swim, was riding
a colt, aod both were just a little bit skit
tish about tackling the treacherous John
Day, Mr. Hunt started back to Harry's
rescue, with the intention ot changing
horses with him, bnt when nearly acroas
Jim's horse stnmbled on the rocks and fell
over in the riyer. Although not oyer belly
deep, the current was very strong, and Jim
was carried down 50 yards or so when he
succeeded 10 getting hold of a large rock.
Mr. Matlook suooeeded in crossiog back
farther np tbe riyer, and riding rapidly
down till opposite Mr. Hunt, threw a rope
to him and another on to his floundering
horse and dragged both out of the river,
unhurt, but scared out of a winter's growth.
The Reward Given-
Seeing an item in Yesterday! Telegram
by detective Sam Simmons, to the effect
that no one received the reward offered by
the Pacific Express Company for the ap
prehension of the robbers and the recovery
of the money stolen, our reporter called
on Sheriff Driver and aiked him the same
question that was asked detective Simmons
i. e. "Who will get the rewarJ?" Sheriff
Driver answered,. "I have received all the re
ward that has been given; but Mr. Sim
mons did not know thia wben he gave that
statement to tbe Telegram." Mr. Driver
went on to state that aa soon as any persona,
bound over to appear before the grand jury,
were convicted he would receive tbe addi
tional reward of $230 for each oooviction.
Thus it will be seen that if Klein, Savage
and Gibons are convicted Sheriff Driver
will leceive a reward of $2250.

Discovery is guar

benefit or cure, in
every case, you
have your money back. No other medi
cine of its kind is so eertain and effective
that it can be sold so. Is any other
likely to be "just as good"?
As a blood-cleanser, flesh-builder, and
strength-restorer, nothing can equal tha
"Discovery." It's not like the sarsapa
rillas, or ordinary "spring medicines."
At all seasons, and in all cases, It puri
fies, invigorates, and builds up the whole
system. For every blood-taint and
disorder, from a common blotch or erup

permanent, guaranteed remedy.

New Product for Oregon.
Professor Shaw, chemist at the agri
cultural experiment station at Corvallis,
i3 delving into the problem what can-
aigre will do for Oregon farmers. The
experiment began last week, and in due
time will be reported in a bulletin. Can-
aigre is a duid tnat tormerly grew in a
wild Etate in Arizona, but more recently
haa been cultivated with indifferent suc
cess. It is used for tannine leather for
which it is equal if not superior to oak
or hemlock bark, and sells in this coun
try at 20 per ton, in Vienna at fC5 per
ton. Ten to 15 tons per acre is the pos
sible yield, and it costs $20 per acre to
grow it. A warm climate with plenty
of moisture is necessary to successful
cultivation, and for this reason the pro
fessor thinks that in Eastern Oregon,
where, irrigation is possible, the bulb
may be successfully grown and become
one of that section's exports. The "ex
periment will include a trial in all por
tions oi the state.

Oeafnttee Cannot Ue Cared
By local applications as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the
mucuous limning of the Eustachian tube.
When this tube is lnnamea you have a
rambling sound or imperfect bearing,
and when It is entirely closed, deafness is
the result, and unless the inflammation
can be taken out and this tube restored to
its normal condition, hearing will be de
stroyed forever; nine cases ont often are
caused by catarrh, which -is nothing but
an inflamed condition of the mucous sur
faces. We will give One Handred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars; free.
