Coos Bay Stage Held Up by a Lone Highwayman. THE PASSENGERS SHELL OUT Bat Some Large Amounts Are Saved Peffer on Money Question Crisis in Omaha. Roaeburg, Or., August 13.-A the Coos ..'Bay stage was coming up Camas Moun tain, en route from Myrtte'Po.M to Rose burg, between two and halt past this afternoon, Dan O&rdwull and Baaey Mat thews, of RoeclMirg, were riding on the box seat with, the driver, eQo. Iieinger, 'X'he -driver remarked, "iter: in ine p,aue wa wera held up lat Tuaaday." After having driven on nearly a quar ter of i& mil Cardw.l remrto.u "Would It nut be a joke if t'he rob'ber thould op pear from behind) that itrao on this side of the road?" Almost before Sle had finished sptiaklng a lig'ht pound, as It twig were being broken, waa heard from the upper side of the road. Lalnger aald, "My God, here he comes," and at the same lnetoJtt a man sprang from behind itno tree with a platol in each hand He cried out, "Here, hold up." The driver put on the broke and etopped. The robber next commanded all hands up and said "Put 'am up high and stand up." He re peated "stand up" several times. No one made a move, and Cardwell asked, "Who are you speaking to?" He replied "To you, and throw over your money." 'CardweJl stood up and threw two dollars to the ground, but was told to dig up the rest and not give him all small stuff, He gave up two dollars more. Cardwell had on the first alarm thrown another purse, containing $193, on the seat behind him, which he saved. Matthews was next xjamraanded to stand up and deliver. He stood up and threw on the spot designated $2.60, saying, "I can't fcelp) you much, partner, times are too hard." "Yes, I know," replied the robber, "that's why I'm in this business." Matthews carried several hundred dollars In gold and green. tacks which he threw on the back: seat end in the 'boot Major Pond, the light house inspector, and Miss Myrtle Ban, were Inside, and the robber addressed the. major, saying, "Dig up, old man." He was told ho could not give much, and took J1.60 from his vest pocket. Miss Ban carried about $134, but was not disturb ed. The driver was then told' to stand up, but replied, "I cant stand up," saying that the road was so steep it was difficult to stand erect, so he was allowed to re. main seated. Had he gotten up the money thrown on the seat by the passen gers would have been in plain view of the robber. The driver bid him good bye, and he replied, "Oood bye, but you will see me again, in a day or two," Lalnger is confident that it is the same fellow who held up the stage last week, This is his third experience on the same raid within a short time, and he is con fident that he would recognize the rob ber by his voice, which Is father femt nine. PEJPFER ON SILVER. Tmporla, Kan., August 13. Senator Pef fer has written a letter to C. D. Holder), of this city, in which he comes out strongly in favor of currency based upon silver plan .and writes that h believes the chief trouble with the country Is In terest and its twin evil, rent. He calls attention to the fact that the average rate of Interest is 7 per cent and states that the the net average savings of the people for the past 40 years has not beers over 3 per cent. "We ere," hie continued, "paying more than twice as muoh'for the use of money we have been compelled to borrow as we have been able to same from ur la&or. Rents are governed by the prevailing rates for the use of money, I can see no way out of our roubles In th, dlrec. Hon I have spoken of, that will be so safe, so Just, so easy of accomptishment, and so efficient, as to coin our land. Issue money based upon our wealth and abol ish the business of issuing money by corporations." 'In an Interview Peffer said thit he was glad to see an Idea progressing in the face of what he called "rabid metalllsm." He declared against free colnegjr and will name me stump against it This fall. THE KNAPPA CHURCH. Pastor Resigns to go to Other FMd. Knappa, August Sth, 1895. Recently Rev. Rct. T. Graham resign ed the pastorate of the Knappa Presby terian church, to accept a call to a church near La Grande. This resignation was only reluctantly accepted by the congregation as he has endeared himself so much to his congregation through his Godly life, his eloquent preaching and untiring devocio and efforts for- the Church. The church has lost shepherd whose dace WIS be hard to fill. Rev. Graham and his estimable family left lure for the new field Thnrsdayr tha sth of Auguit. Tuesday evening a fare well reception was gives; In the church, with a very large attendance, and despite the ffolemnlty; of th occasion, an enjoy. able evening waa spent.' After a short literary program, ending with, "God be with, you till we meet again," Elder W. R. McFarlane arose and delivered the following touching address, oni bthalf of the congregation: "Dear Beloved Pastor: We feel we can not exver our connection with you who have ministered to our spiritual welfare foD'tha past two years, without giving ex pression to our deep Sense of regret, that in the providence of the Lord, our happy and profitable relations should come to such an early close, We' submit, as wa know your highest motive, la to labor where you can be xC the greatest service to tu greater number of our f ellowmen. As' a shepherd over this flock,' we have always observed your greatest anxiety, that not ou under your care should remain outside the fold, that you were al ways ready to help and sympathize with, those in trouble, your earnest and firm declaration of the Gospel conmltted to your trust, has bee: the means ot ar resting a. great number in our midst to seek "t'lie better part that shall not ba taken away." We rejoice to look back over the success which, has attended your iaujr of iove, and how often have we felt it was "good to be here" as we have heard from your lips the menage of love. We admire thj motive which prompts you to go to the more neely field and re ceive a smaller salary, for He has said "wiiu.ver shall be least among you ahull be greatest." We feel deep.y the loss of a man full of the spirit of the Lord, end power of His might to declare uttto us our relation to .God. Our progress and hopes shall be that as you labjf in your new field, you may soar as , the ejgle oa wings of faith and love, to high er and loftier pjaks, in knowing and do ing the Master's will, and that your charge will be as a well watered garden, which the Lord will ble'ae. W shall miss your encouraging smile, and the hearty Hwnd grasp. May your youth be renew ed, and you spared' for many useful yar3, in warning and rescuing the perishing. We hope you will meet friends who will bear to you tha measure and spirit of love which existed between David and Jonathan. May your- whole charge be bound to you in the threefold cords of love which are not easily broken,' We shall miss your hospitable home where the "latch string" always hung out for us. We commend yourself and beloved wife and children to Him who hath said "Lio, I 'ami with you always, even unto the end of the world." If we should nev er be permitted to meet again on earth, may we be prepared to meat on the ibUased siwr:s of eternity, where there shall he no parting and God shall wipe aU tears from our eyes." The pastor in his reply, made some highly appropriate and touching remarks, In Which he bore losing tribute and grate ful testimony to the peace and harmony that had characterized their mutual rela tions, to the perfect loyalty of all who were in any way identified with the church, the unswerving devotion, wisdom and helpfulness of his noble band of el ders and deacons, and especially to the blessing of God continually with and upon minister and congregation. He ald that during his two years with the church, which had indeed toten a labor of love, he had been deeply conscious of the up-j lifting and suatalning power of their prayer. In referring to the fleldl to which he had been called, In the provi dence of God, ho felt, convlnsid the-lr prayers would follow him, and assured all he would never cease to rcim?mber them at a throne of grace, confident that the Lord would be with them, and pros per, them In all good things in the fu ture, as He bad la the past. ' It was with a choking effort he spoke his closing words, and great tears cours.'d down the cheeks of many. Mr. W. It., McParlane then arose, and on behalf of the congre gation presented Rev. Graham with a welMtlkd purse, as a slltfht token of their esteem. The recipient was com pletely surprised and almost overcome, but managed to express his thanks and appreciation In a toucntng manner. Re freshments wiire then served by the la dies, during which, and afterwards, a social time was enjoyed till a late hous. GIVE HIM A CALL.

LldoVftl, Aftorla, Oregon; E The Depot Location Is Assum ing Definite Shape. CURVES AND GRADES REDUCED No Eipeusa to Be Spared in First - CoustrnctionYoung's Bay to B Bridged. Interest In the question of the location of the railroad depot continues to be the all absorbing topic upon the street cor ners, and In the hotel lobbies. The matter Is beginning to assume definite shape and plans havte been submitted for the loca tion of the depot at or near Alderbrook. The property owners of that district are fuily alive to the importance of securing a depot In. that location and 'have made a very liberal proposition to this railroad people, which includes an abundance of land upon' which to locate the necessary terminals. In consideration of the fact that the greatest portion of the subsidy donated, to eeoure the railroad, is lo cated la the vicinity of Alderbrook, It would lead to the conclusion that the very liberal proposition made by those citizens might be an Inducement for the railroad company to locate the depot at that point. It is quite certain that defi nite action will be taken In the immediate future, and one who Is posted Is authority for lhi statement that t'he railroad com pany is only delaying settlement of the question in order to meet the views of the majority of the citizens and to sub serve th.; interests cf the greatest num ber. . Th engineering cotps are pushing ahead with the work and now have the line per manently located about t.n miles out of Astoria. One of the nine-degree curves just eaD of the John ays, as located by the former survey made, by ths -Astoria people some .years ago has been- reduced to, a "seven degree curve. Engitveer "34 mlelon has succeeded In getting the llrlej through at but little Increase In estimated cXj)ense and reducing ail Curvatures to' seven degrees, . which will- be the -maximum curvature for the road. The degree of. curvature Indicate the gradi.' resist ance to power and speed and It la plain that the leas the curves and grade, the greater the numb r Jt loads that can be hauled by a given power. From this it Is evident that the company Is well laying ;he four.Uatlon for a solid roadway, capa ble of handling the largest amount of traffic at the less cost, which in these days of Intense competition and small margin of pNflt Is -a most essential fea ture. Oider roads hastily corstructed, with sharp curves and heavy grides, have had to be n modeled and rebuilt at great expense, In order to meet the require ments of 'the times. Mr.' Hammond no doubt intends to carry out t'he statenvnte made that this road would be built strict ly first-class in every particular. It is understood that trains will be run ning Into Astoria across Young's Bay by November or December 1st, and that con venient aco.ss will be given to the busi ness community of the South Coast. WAR ON THE VTGRANT3. The Police orce Determined to Rid the Cl y of thl sUndtJSlrable Class. i Quite a batch of offenders faced Judge Oaburn In the police court yesterday charged with various petty ofl.nse rang ing from the ordinary drunk to the morq serious charge of vagrancy, Gust Anderson was the first case called, and falling to put in an appraran:e, his ball of $10 was declared forfeited, He is the man who had the trouble several day ago In a restaurant, on Commercial- street, using obscene, language in the presence of ladles and attempting to destroy the dishes. The proprietor sought to ej3ct him and a right ensued, during which time Anderson was struck on the head with a chair. J. A. Cairns, arrested for taking part IA the m.-lee) was. dismissed, there being absolutely no testimony to show that he was In any way a participant. - The case of Edward Hunter was con tinued until this afternoon. He was ac cused by Robert Johnson of assault ar.d battery and when court was called the prosecuting witness was not present. A bench warrant was accordingly Issued for Johnson and If found hie will have chance to explain today. Judge Osburo Is' determined to put a tap to the prac tice, which to growing quite comraxi lately, of men swiearltig to complaints and then falling to put in an appearance whe-n the case is called. ! . William Tagon, arrested for being drunk, was not suffickntly sobered up to Highest of all iu Leavening Pover.-r-Latest U. S. Gov't Report talk Intelligently, so was ordered below again. William Kelff "and Georga Smith an swered guilty to a charge of fighting and wene sent below for five daysn The case of W. H. Ragsdale, accused of being a vagrant, was then taken up. He, was arrested by Otllcer SeaifeMt, while "boosting" for a wheel game la a down town saloon. Ragsdalo is a recent ar rival lit town and the officer testified tot having seen him often boosting for the gane. Askittt by the city attorney what .ha meant by "boosting," the officer re--plied that a booster was a man, who roped' suckers for gambling games. He stated that a game would have four or flvei' mea who were provided with moaey by the game keeper, and thai whenever a greenhorn was induced to play ha was robbed of all ho had.1 They resort to all kinds of schemes to Induce people to play and 'the games they generally work for are called "sure thing games." Rags dale did not deny working for the game, but said that he waa no vagrant; that hi) was here looking for work which he ex pected to get soon. Judge Osburn evi dently took but little stock in his story, and as he inflicted a $50 flne upon him said, that he was sorry that more "boost eis" were not brought before him. Daniel Laper, another recent arrival, was fined J50. He was charged with the same p'ffenee. He claims to be an ex saloon keeper , of Portland, and stated that h was Jr. town with a view to going into business Officer SeafeMt testified to bis continually hanging around disrepu table places and that he had no visible means of support. . . , THE FIRST. GUN. New Addition Ttfrown on the Market Yes- terday. The Astoria Addition to Warrenton was yesterday placed upon the market by R. L.Boyle & Co., and tho people given an opportunity to make, cheap Investments. In describing the property Bola & Co. say: , i "This addition Is beautiful tide meadow land, completely dyked In; fully cleared and perfectly Iwvel, so that no grading is necessary. It is the natural elta where will spring up the future city of destiny, by the sia. Few at this time) cam com prehend the vastnessj of the change that will be made in the Immediate . future. Here the most -ot Mr.. Hammond's (the ' railroad builder) Interests are located and ull of the property on .the west side of the bay Is ewn now being bought up or zonded. Here will me seen tha greatest boom In real stato ever witnessed on the Pacific Coast. The natural resources are here to Justify the building and support of a greut city thj leader of the com merce ot the world. Ic will not be the mushroom growth of a night,, only . to perish with t'ho rising sun, having nothing behind it to make business and support a people. But with its) timber preserves, great' Ashing Industry, mineral lands anJ agricultural resources behind it, with an Imm.uise commerce Controlled here by the opening o'f the Astoria and Goble railroad) the new Astoria will ' at one take her rightful place among the leading ports of the nation and tho world." I'Followlng the completion of the, Asto ria a'nd Goble road will naturally come the building of the line through the Ne halem valky, and. connection with the Willamette valley railroads, as well as ot other lines of rood sure to be construct ed, which will make their termini at this favored location on the Columbia river. Situated only ten miles from the ocean, with its Innumerable natural advantages, what may not be accomplished? Compare!1 with' Seattle and Tacoma her nat cral facilities are far superior, and when ono looks back ten years and marks the growth of those cltljs, resulting from their railroads, some tka may be had ot the possibilities of the new Astoria.".
