SATURDAY.. . OCTOBER 27. 1894 RUNNING BACKWARD. . ' ,..' c '.. ; . - Congressman William L. Wileon, of . WMt .Virgima, has handled his special train callnd "Eloquence on ' Wheels" , s he handled the - business of the : country in the tariff bill which some times bsars his name, says the Inter Ocean. He reversed Ihe lever in both . instances, and his special train in West - iTirginia is running backward just as the business train of this country did ' when he took bold of the tariff lever as chairman of the committee on way " and means. ' We -do not know why : Wilson reversed the'lever on bis spe cial, "Eloquence on - Wheels,"- which . was carrying Mr. -Wilson and .Bourke Oockran through Virginia, trying to . cover the track of Gorernor McKinley and check the rout of ' the free trad era, but we 'suspect that the-name of that special had something to do with its failure. - The people are not caring a penny about eloquence this year, whether xt ' be on wheels or on foot. They bave found that Democratic eloquence is a dangerous quantity when it promises the whole corld and delivers nothing. The people are looking for business and. business . prospeots this year. ' They are studying the tariff question from the" practical point of view of : business,, not the, .beautiful ,free-trade ' theories of a college' professor, or the pyrotechnic oratory of a Tammany Democrat. wha declared jn congress that the- Wilson bill was a - more ob : noxious tariff measure than the Mc : Kinley. law,, and - then - turned about and voted for it. Mre eloquence is -not a forcible factor in this campaign.' . The voters want something more sub stantial. u . , ' Congressman Wilson has a bard 'fiht on his bands in the second dis trict of West Virginia. It is against him because it is a large mining dia - tricl, and the, coal miners who voted for him two. years ago do not like his vote tor-tree coal and bis pledge to " secure, free coal and place them on a footing'' with 'the" miners of - Nova : Sootia. -Mr. Wilson's friends have - tried to make iV appear that the Re publicans from other states were pour- - ing money into the district and send ing the most popular Republican lead ers there to help defeat WilsoD.

Two barges are towed down each trip, and five trips are made every week "between the jetty and quarry. Sometimes the waters below As toria are quite boisterous, and some diffi cnlty is experienced in landing the scows at the jetty.

Yesterday was a dav of intense excite ment at The Dalles, and from early morn imr until late at nieht nothine was talked about but discoveries made in regard to th express robbery committed in thu city oc Saturdry niaht. Oct. 13:h. It was known to many the evening before that arrests had been made on evidence that would almost insure conviction of two persons of the crime. The developments in the case had been kept quiet although a few were know ine to the steps beibg taken, and the Times-Mountaineer of -last Thursday gave information of the discovery of the robbery-, as far as the editor deemed con sistent with tLe ends of justice. The ar rests were expected for some days pre viously; but matters were not fully matured. On Saturday District Attorney Jaynt was teleuhoned for. and . came down on the afternoon train. The facts ascertained were laid bsfore him and warrants of arrest were immediately issued for Frank . Klein and Otis Savage for .the crime. These were served by Sheriff Driver, and the prisomrs were taken to - tne Umatilla House and lodged in separate rooms, where they were subjected to a cross examination by the district attorney, aided by Mr. S. Simmons. one of the Pirtland -detectives and Sheriff Driver. The boys stood the ordeal admirably well that evening and nothing was gained frem them. The next morning the examination was again continued, and about noon Frank Ktien broke completely down and made a full confession, det tiling the oirenmstances in connection with this and other crimes with which they had been connected. The manner in which the key waa pro- oured to the door of the express office was piven in detail. During the flood, - when the buildiugs in the submerged district were left open, Klein rode down in a boat one hight, took off the lock, fitted the key and then replaoed it. This he kept in bis po session for any emergency. He ia a skilful locksmith, and this work was directly in his line. Amidst tears "and sobs he told the offio era how he -and Utis savage bad watched - the . train arrive at the Umatilla bouse that night from Court street. had then passed through the alley to Wash logton street, had then secreted themselves nnder a work bench until the express' wagon arrived and the treasure box bad been de posited on tbe ' inside. Their work was then quickly done.- Using the jtck bar, which had been properly shaped for tbe purpose . the lock - was' pried off. The staples were first tried, but these could not be moved, as they were riveted on the inside. Taking as much specie as they could con veniently carry they proceeded te the corner of the alley, where the tags from one of the sacks was torn off and dropped at the end of the atone building. Returning from this point care was taken to walk hack on the rocks so as to leave no returning footprints. They then bent their way dowa the street, across FrODt, and to the beach by the side of the old Waldroo building, and in the rear of the Cosmopolitan, where they rested for a time.. They then tojk their loads of . gold and filyer and threw them under the build ing occupied by the China wash house. They remained there until Monday night, when one sack was bnried under the old building that had fallen below the sidewalk by reason ot the flood, another under the China boose, and $5,000 in gold .was." taken .by Klein Tuesday ,night and , buried in the yard of his father's residence. The bar had been in their possession for over a year, and the tobbery bad baen planned for that length of time." . - On further questioning Klein acknow ledged that they had been connected with Hawthorne an i Rowe in the different dep redations committed in this city,' and one point of the jickbar hid been" shaped so. as to open doors without leaving any inden tore. It was stolen from the machine shops a long time ago. About two years ago plan was being matured ' for robbing "The Dalles National bank. -This was to be ac oomphshed by securing Mr. Fred ' Bronson andby torture to foroe him to. give .the combination to the vault. Another sohem6 nearly matared, was to blow np the passeo ger train at a point about fire miles west ef the city 'where the-track - maksa a long ourve. - Tbe explosives were procured and everything was in readiness; but, in a con ference of the gang, Hawthorne and Rowe objected, because such" a scheme would nec essarily cause the sacrifice of human lives. and they did not wish to kill anyone un necessarily. Klein and Savage called them cowards," and a quarrel ensued.' Since that time there' had been no good feeling be tween the memberrof the band, and Klein and Savage had pursued their, own . way. After the failure of this attempt Klein snd Savage spent aeyeral weeks in" the Yakima valley, looking for an opportunity to bold op a, Northern racinc train. They "met wilhjo Jadventnres" in that locality, and returned to their old haunts. About two months sgo the postoffice was robbed,' and Klein acknowledged that he and Savaire had entered by a' back window and -scoured abont $.18 lu coin.. They rex pected a large receipt of registered matter f iat night; but tbe heavy sack that was ex. p,'cted to contain com was filled with Con gressional records. The bank at. Heppner was an object of attack, and - this was en trusted to Hawthorne and Rowe; : b it the arrest of these parties by the officers - frus trated the robbery. - . V .. i During all these confessions Savage main tained the moat stoical indifference, and said that he new nothing abou t any of the robberies or schemes in which he had been implicated. Ja conversation with a. person who was present at, the time the, confession was made, a reporter ef this paper was told that Savage had the -strongest, "perye" ot SDy man he had ever met. The surging of the blood through the . views of his neck was the only indication that he gave of ex. cite meet; but there was a wicked gleam in bis eye that boded pogood to Klein if they ver met hereafter. .' ; As soon as the confession was through, Sheriff Driver and - Mr. Beckwith, . went to uncover tbe hidden, treasure. They pro cured a pick and shovel and proceeded to the spot near the Cosmopolitan, ; where the $7500 in old aad the sack containing $1500 in silver were unearthed and taken to the express office. They then went to Klein's houke and digging in the yard, which had recently been covered by a thick layer of manure, they brought to the surface tbe $5000 specie sack, of which there' were $200 misaiijg. Soon the news , spread through the city like wild fire, and the greatest ex citement prevailed. People thronged the streets in all directions,, and the . disclosures in the express robbery were the all absorb- ing'topioof aon versa Hon. , . ..' .' ',', ! s One very agreeable feature of this chap ter of the express robbery was the universal congratulations tendered Mr. F. N. Hill, tie Facifx Express agent. ver since tbe affair soon felt so keenly as himself tbe shadow that was wrongfully cast npon bis oame, and wheu eyeiy thing 'was made clear, withont the least suspicion, it lifted a heavy burden from : his- soul . whiuh had well nigh weighed him down. But the universal congratu'ations he received de monstrated to the fullest extent that thi community never suspected him and enter tained for bim the k'n lest feelings. An other incident which approaches the diviuitj in human nature, was when Klein was making his confession the action ot Mr Hill on the occasion. The young man had openly confessed a crime which bad wercked Mr. Hill's peace of mind for weeks, and had well-nigh blackened his reputation for life The man stood bif re him in his confessed gnilt, for whose malicious act he had per haps lost that which it would take years t( regain, and yet he displayed no Vindictive ones toward him; but, with a smile of for giveness on bis face, he approached Kleic and extended to bim his hand. Giving him a hearty skake, be hoped that after' he bad suffered for bis crime he would - come back to the world a man in the fullest sense of the term. Such an act ia more divine than human, and oannot be too. highly com mended. . .. . The young men Klein and Savag are nearly the same sge, and about 25 yeirt old. They were born and reared at Tht Dalles, and their actions in this mattei have caused great surprise. The parents ol the latter were highly respected residents ol of The' Dalles, where they died several yeari ago; but of the former they still live in the city, and bave always maintained an un spotted reputation for integrity. . In thit great tmiotioo they will recaive the sym pathy of many friends. - The arrest of these two young men for the crime of robbing the express office is the result ot the cleverest work that has been done in this state, and great oredit ia due to the detectives who have been here for the past few days, but more particularly te our sheriff, Mr. Thomas Driver. He per sistently pursued the clue found the morn ing after the robbery, .and unraveled the web thread by thread until he laid bare tbe guilt of the parties and wormed a confession from voung Klein. On Monday morning after the robbery the editor of this paper called on Mr. Driver, and he told him the clue he had, and that he waa confident he would eyentatlly be successful. A day or so afterwards he had occasion to examine the alley back of the Klein residence and found .a piece of wax. This he put uuder a powerful gloss and feuitd to be a part ot one ot - the Express Co.'s seals on the big., .From this be was satisfied that a portion ot the stolen monev was bnried in the yard. The next day pro. curing a'n old gun and pretending that be desired it repaired he called at tbe Klein residence and inquired for Frank.' Hie mother told him he was absent, and ' Mr. Dnyer said he had a revolver he " desired fixed, and he would put it in the workshop, which was a few steps from the dwelling house. He had the bar with him and look ing around saw a small anvil. The width of this jubt fitted the flat place made in the bar where it waa bant, and a hammer on -the bench had a temper crack in the shape of a crQM tbe impress of which could be' seen 00 the iron. In consultation with Mr. Lord and Mr. Simmons, ' Mr. Driver suggested that Hawthorne and Kowe should he en terviewed. As sheriff of the county he was considered the proper person to do this, and he visited the Multnomah county 'jail, where Hawthorne is incarcerated, and also the penitentiary where Rowe is - serving a sentence, for' larceny. , They idedtified the bar and the statements of each, taken fifty miles apart and at different times, corrobo rated that of the other.' On the evening 'of the robbery it was raining, and " the ' foot prints were liable to ' be obliterated. To prevent thia they were covered,' and the next morning the ' detectives took " a measure of them and cut a ' pattern cf tha shape. These were found to exactly fit the hoe worn by Otis Savi-ge. ' Mr. Driver, at one time, engaged Savage in conversation in front ot the" marshal's office, while he was eclining in a chair with his feet extended. Aitracting his attention to some object at a distance, be reached' down' apparently in a careless manner, and, in an instant had measured the length and width of his shoe with a stick. ' These 'formed indisputable links in the chain of evidence, and, to gether with the disclosures of Hawthorne, waa sufficient on which to make an arrest. This followed, and the subsequent confes sion.' While we do not wish to detract from the faithful work done by every mem ber of the force of detectives who bave been in thia -city for the past few days, yet the coo), .intelligent and persistent efforts ot our .sheriff are entitled to theigreater praise. ' Shortly before noon today Frank Klein was called-before Justice Davis and, after waiving examination he was bound over, in bail of f 5000. '-' ' At the suggestion of District Attorney Jayne, Frank made a" sl)brt statement of the particular "crime - of . robbing the ex press box that was not in his .confession of yesterday, -.implicating Ralf Gibons in the matter and Gibons was arrested, his examination to take place tomorrow. Klein's statement is about as follows: The plans were first -made while -on a summer fishing trip at BadgerLake, but not fully completed till later on.' jGibons, fie says, had a" key tothe"express" office and turned it over to Klein for a pattern; thus the key to enter the -office was se cured-.. Then Klein and Savage were to nightly' watch the wagon as it carried the box and Gibons was, as often as possible, to ride "on the wagon from the train and whenever there was sufficient money in it an agreed signal was to. notify the con cealed conspirators- of that . fact. ' The signal was for Gibons to take- off his hat, wipe his brow and cough. On this par ticular pight thesignal was given twice. There was too much money in . the box, Klein - - says, "more -tha-we . expected and a whole lot more than--we wanted.!' Frank also states that k was in the plan to use the steel bar to - brea.k: the lock after the-fbox wasvrifled1, . in order to throw the suspicion away from -anyone having a fceyp but there1 were Js6 many people passing from the dance that he did not dare do it.- ,. i Mr. Sam Klein also made a voluntary" statement under oath, but it throws no more light on the, subject than the public already know, . - t s ' ' , The testimony of - accomplices should alwaysTbe taken "wtthfhe highest" degree of caution," and. it is-only fair and" just to Mr. Gibons thaj the public . should hold their-opinion in. abeyance ntil an impart tial trial has Deen naa. He nas been -a trusted officer for many. years, against whom no charges have. been made, and his parents and brother are amonir the most highly, respected' people, in this community, where they have lived .and enjoyed an unspotted' reputation for more than a-quarter of a century."

Suddenly, from just across the pa rade and directly behind the line of officers' quarters, there came a short, sharp bark, followed by several more in quick succession, the time growing faster and the pitch higher until in a moment they all ran together in one long drawn and lugubrious howL Then the noise stopped, but before I could recover breath it began again in the same way as before, only loud er and in a more wailing tone, until it seemed as if a chorus of fiends was lamenting the invasion of their haunts by the white man. We were in the heart of the Indian country, and thinking the unusual noise was the signal for a midnight attack I was about to. run back to the guardhouse, turn out the guard and arouse the garrison, when a sharp "Who comes there?" warned me that I was approaching a senti nel. After I had been duly advanced this man proved to be an old soldier of my own company, who had prob ably enlisted not many years after I was born. It occurred to me that it would do no harm to see if ho knew what the noise was, especially as he seemed totally undisturbed by it. "Higgins, did you hear that yell ing across the parade?" "Yes, sor." Here I thought I saw the beginning of a grin at the corners of his mouth, and in consequence became very dig nified. "What was it, Higgins?" "Nothing but coyotes, sor." Here the grin became unmistaka ble and had to be checked with a stern glance. "But, Higgins, if that noise waa: made by coyotes, there must have been a hundred,- and I would have Been them on the snow." . . "Begging the looten'nt's pardon. sor, I think there wuz only two.!' About this time I recalled what the older officers had told me about coyotes, and with a disgusted air I continued my rounds. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Roueh Weather. Late reports from Astoria are to the effect that very heavy weather prevails off the mouth of the Columbia,- and that the bar is very rough. It is reported at Astoria that eight fishing boats left South Bend, Wash. about a week ao, bound for the former plac-il Nothing whatever has been heard of these boats since their departure, and it is feared that all the men who embarked on this perilous voyage have perished..' Two men, it is said, were in each boat, making a total of 16. ' It is the opinion ot fishermen that if these men were on' the ocean during the recent sterm it is almost certain that they have been lost. Yesterday the wayes were rolling very high outside tbe bar, and no Sshioe craft could possibly live in such a sea. " ' How He Does It. Mr. O'Brien, of Umatilla county. . is level headed farmer.' Instead of looking sour, he says he is making money this year He doesn't sleep. He diversifies his busi ness and runs it on business principles. Let's see. He gets abont $300 from his butter; $100 to $200 from his potatoes; perhaps $100 from hay; his hogs pan out well, and even with wheat as low as it is this year he clears something. Mr. O'Brien was asked, "what principle do you apply to yonr farm ine to enable you to make money when so many are complaining that in . no depart ment on the farm can a profit be secured? The reply was: "It is by diversity of crops, , and by carefully keeping account of all out lay and revenue so as to tell . how much more is secured from one line than another." Hnmbngs... . .

It appears in the shape of a brush or ; star, (seldom round or -square), usually at the tips of the masts, or if on land at the points of gables or spires. . It is . occasionally accompanied . by a hissing noise, and on this account is believed to be an electrical manifestation. The old time mariners believed the light to be the spirits of Castor and Pollux (who were supposed to watch over men who "go down to the sea in'ships"); ' they "always' regarding the "fire" as a 6ign that the force of the storm had been spent T' A Hearse Bis Family Carriage.
