"I shot It this morning," b con tinued, "we'll use It." "What do you mnr asked Alta toont. "I mean to blow up the bears en Baui with 100 pounds of powder." "But where la the powder?" exclaim ed hla friends. "In the magazine. This passage I dug will lead to It. I made It pur posely." "And where Is the mine to be?" In quired Altamont "At the farthest point from the house and stores." "And how will you manage to entice the bears there, all to one spot?" Til look after that. Let us set to work. We have 100 feet more to add to our passage to-night, and that la no easy matter. There are five of us we can take turns. Bell will begin, and we will lie down and sleep mean time." One by one. all went to work, and In ten hours that is to say. about S In the morning the gallery was entirely open. With the first streak of day the doc tor reconnoltered the position of the enemy. The patient animals were still occupying their old position, prowling up and down and growling. Hastening away to the mine, he had a strong stake fixed firmly on the granite foundation, on the top of which tin dead fox was fastened. A rope was attached to the lower part of the stake, long enough to reach the pow der stores. "This Is the bait." he said, pointing to the dead fox. "and here Is the mine," he added, rolling In a keg of powder containing about 100 pounds. "And how will you manage?" asked Altamont. "By hauling In this rope we leave the dead fox exposed to view. The bears are so famished with their long fasting that they won't lose much time In rushing toward their unexpected tneaL Well, Just at that very moment, I shall set Are to the mine, and blow up both the guests and the meal" "Capital! Capital!" shouted John son, who had been listening with In tense Interest. Hatteras said nothing, for he had such absolute confidence in his friend that he wanted no further explanation. But Altamont must know the why and wherefore of everything." "But doctor." he said, "can you reckon on your match so exactly that you can be quite sure it will Am the mine at the right moment?" "I don't need to reckon at all; that's a difficultly easily got over." "They you have a match a hundred feet long?" "No." "You are simply going to lay a train of powder." "One of us must light the powder." aid Johnson. "I'm ready ready and willing." "Quite useless to risk your life, brave fellow," replied the doctor, hold ing out his hand. "All our Uvea are precious, and they will be all spared thank God! "We have an electric battery." he continued, "and lines long enough to erve our purpose? We can Ore our mine whenever we please. In an In stant, and without the slightest dan ger." "Hurrah!" exclaimed Johnson. "Hurrah!" echoed the others, with out heeding whether the enemy heard them or not. The doctor's idea was Immediately carried out, and the lines connected. By t o'clock everything was ready. Johnson was stationed In the powder magazine, in charge of the cord which held the bait. "Now," said Clawbonny to his com panions, "load your guns. In case our assailants are not killed. Stand be side Johnson, and the moment the ex plosion Is over rush out" "All right." said Altamont. "We have done all we can to help ourselves. May heaven help us!" Hatteras. Altamont and Bell repair ed to the powder magazine, while the doctor remained alone beside the pile. Boon he heard Johnson's voice In the distance calling out "Ready!" "All light!" was the reply. Johnson pulled the rope that brought the body of the fox on top the Ice. The next Instant the bears had eager ly rushed to seize the booty. "Fire!" called out Johnson, and at once the electric spark was sent along the lines right into the keg of powder. A formidable explosion ensued; the house was shaken as if by an earth quake, and the walla cracked asunder. Hatteras, Altamont and Bell hurried out, with the guns. But four of the bears lay dead, and the fifth, half roasted, though alive, was soamberlng away in terror, as fast aa hla legs could carry htm. "Hurrah!" Three cheers for Claw bonny!" they shouted, and overwhelm ed the doctor with plaudits and thanks Next morning there was a singular rise in me temperature, the thermom eter going up to IS degrees above sero This comparative heat lasted sev eral days. In sheltered spots the glass rose aa mgn as ji degrees, and symp toms of a thaw appeared. The lee began to crack here and there, and Jets of salt water were thrown up, like fountains In an English park. A lew days later the rain fell In torrents. For about a fortnight hunting was the principal occupation. There was an abundant supply of fresh meat to be had. They shot partridges, ptarmi gans and snow ortolans, which are de licious eating. "Do you think we shall have a long pell of this weather. Dr. Clawbonny r asked Johnson, "No, my friend. I don't; It is a last blow from the cold. You see these are bis dominions, and he won't bo driven east without making soma "What la the reason?" "Because generally there Is a peri odical frost In the month of May. and It Is coldest from the 11th to the 13th. That Is the fact." The doctor was right for the cold lasted till the end of the month, and put an end to all their hunting expedi tions. The old. monotonous life In doors recommenced. CHAPTER IX During this compulsory leisure. Clawbonny determined to have a talk with the captain on an Important sub ject the building of a sloop out of the planks of the Porpoise. The doctor hardly knew how to be gin, as Hatteras had declared so vehe mently that he would never consent to use a morsel of American wood: yet It was high time he were brought to reason, as June was at hand, the only season for distant expeditions, and they could not start without a ship. He thought over It a long while, and at last drew the captain aside, in the kindest gentlest way: "Hatteras, do you believe I'm your friend r "Most certainly I do." replied the captain, earnestly; "my best Indeed, my only friend." "And If I give you a piece of advice without your asking, will you consid er my motive la perfectly disinterest ed?" "Tea, for I know you have never been actuated by self-interest But what are you driving at?" "Walt Hatteras; I have one thing more to ask. Do you look on me as a true-hearted Englishman like your self, anxious for his country's glory V Hatteras looked surprised, but sim ply said: "I do." Tou desire to reach the north pole." the doctor went on. "and I understand and share your ambition, but to achieve your object you must employ the right means." "Well, and have I not sacrificed ev erything for it?" "No. Hatteras, you have not sacri ficed your personal antipathies. Even at this very moment I know you are in the mood to refuse the Indispensable conditions of reaching the pole." "Ah! it la the boat you want to talk about and that man "Hatteras. let us discuss the ques tion calmly, and examine th -se on all sides. The coast on which we And ourselves at present may terminate abruptly; we have no proof that it stretches away to the pole; Indeed, If your present information prove cor rect we ought to come to an open sea during the summer months. Well, sup posing we reach this arctic ocean and find It free from Ice and easy to navi gate. what shall we do If we have no Hatteras made no reply. Tell me. now, would you like to find yourself only a few miles from the pole and not be able to get to It" Hatteras still said nothing, but bur led his head In his hands. "Besides," continued ih. "look at the question In Its moral as- nere is an Englishman who sacriflces his fortune, and even his wife, to win fresh glory for his coun try, but because the boat which bears him across an unknown ocean, or touches the new shore, happens to be made of the planks of an t vessel castaway wreck of no use to uj-wne win mat lessen the honor of the discovery? If you yourself had found the hull of some wrecked ves sel lying deserted on the shore, would you have hesitated to mi ... and must not a sloop built by four Enl giisnmen ana manned by four English men be EnglUh from keel to gun wale?" Hatteras was still silent "No," continued Clawbonny. "the real truth la. It Is not the sloop you care about; It la the man." "Tea, doctor, yes." replied the cap tain. "It la this American I detest; I hate him with a thorough English ha tred. Fate has thrown him in mv path." y "To save you!" "To ruin me. He seems to defy me and speaks as if he were lord and mas ter. He thinks he has my destiny In his hands, and knows all my projects Didn't we see the man In his true col ors when we were giving names to the different coasts? Has he ever avowed his object In coming so far north? Tou will never get out of my head that this man is not the leader of some expedi tion sent out by the American govern ment" "Well, Hatteras, suppose' It Is so does It follow that this expedition is to search for the north pole? May It not be to find the Northwest Passage? But anyway, Altamont Is In complete Ignorance of our object for neither Johnson, nor Bell, nor myself, have ever breathed a word to him about it and I am sure you have not" "Well, let him always remain so" "He must be told In the end, for we can't leave him here alone." "Why not? Can't he stay here In Fort Providence?" "He would never consent to that Hatteras; and, moreover, to leave a man In that way, and not know wheth er we might And him safe when we came back, would be worse than Im prudent it would be inhuman, Alta mont will come with us; he must come. But we need not disclose our projects: let us tell him nothing, but simply build a sloop for the ostensible purpose of making a survey of the coast" Hatteras could not bring himself to consent but said; "And suppose the man won't allow his ship to be cut up?" "In that case, you must take the law In your own hands, and build a vessel In spite of him." "1 wish to goodness be would refuse, thenl- "He must be aaked before be oaa re fuse. It undertake the asking." said Clawbonny. He kept bis word, for that very same night at aupper, be managed to turn the conversation towards the subject of making excursions during summer for hydrographies! purposes. "You will Join us. I suppose, Alta mont." he said. "Of course." replied the American. "We must know how far New America extends." Hatteras looked Axedly at' hla rival, but aald nothing. "And for that purpose," continued Altamont "we had better build a lit tle ship out of the remains of the Por poise. It Is the best possible use we can make of her." "You hear. Bell." said the doctor, ea gerly. "We'll all set to work to-morrow morning." In the end of May the temperature again rose, and spring returned for good and alL Rain fell copiously, and before long the melting snow was run ning down every little slope in falls and cascades. But while they were building their boats arguments spring up. Dr. Kane was the first bone of con tention on this occasion, for the Jeal ous Englishman was unwilling to grant his rival the glory of being a discov erer, saying that It was by mere chance he had made a discovery. "Chance!" interrupted Altamont hot ly. "Do you mean to assert that It Is not to Kane's energy that we owe his great discovery?" "I mean to say that Dr. Kane's name la not worth mentioning In a country made Illustrious by such names as Parry, and Franklin, and Ross, and Belcher, and Penny; In a country where the seas opened the Northwest Passage to an Englishman McClure!" "McClure!" exclaimed the American. "Well, if ever chance favored anyone It was that McClure. Do you pretend to deny It?" Hatteras started to hla feet and said: "I will not permit the honor of an English captain to be attacked in my presence any longer!" "You will not permit!" echoed Alta mont also springing erect "But these are facta, and It la out of your power to destroy them!" "Sir!" shouted Hatteras, pale with rage. "My friends!" Interposed the doctor; "pray be calm. This Is a scientific point that we are discussing." But Hatteras was dead to reason now, and said angrily: Til tell you the facts, sir." "And I'll tell you." retorted the Irate American. "Gentlemn." said Clawbonny, In a Ann tone, "allow me to speak, for I know the facts of the case as well as and perhaps better than you, and I can state them Impartially." "Yes, yes!" cried Bell and Johnson, who had been anxiously watching the strife. "Well, go on." said Altamont finding himself In the minority. With charts the doctor told the his tory of McClure's voyage. Still Hat teras and Altamont were dissatisfied "Well, If arriving on one side and leaving at the other is not going through, I don't know what is!" said Hatteras. "Yes, but he went 470 miles over ice fields." objected Altamont "What of that?" "Everything; that la the gist of the whole argument It was not the Inves tigator that went through." "Altamont" said the doctor, "we all consider that you are wrong." "You may easily do that" returned the American. "It Is four against one, but that will not prevent me from holding my own opinion." "Keep It and welcome, but keep It to yourseir, tr you please, for the fu ture," exclaimed Hatteras. "And pray what right have you to speak to me like this, sir?" shouted Altamont In a fury. "My right as captain," returned Hat teras, equally angry. "Am I to submit to your orders, then?" "Most assuredly, and woe to you If The doctor did not allow him to proceed, for be really feared the two antagonists might come to blows. Bell and Johnson seconded his endeavors to make peace, and, after a few con ciliatory words, Altamont turned on his heel, and walked carelessly away, whistling "Yankee Doodle." Hatteras went outside, and paoed up and down with rapid strides. In about an hour he came back, and retired to bed with out saying another word. (To be continued.) A Lay Blatter.

State Commission Arranges to Fi nance Project at The Dalles. The Dalles Work will be commenc ed on the construction of the extension of the state portage road from Big Eddy to The Dalles as soon as the contract can be signed up and the con tractors get their plant on the ground. Judge W. J. Marriner, member of the state portaee commission, and Mr. Newell, -of the enigneering firm of Newell, Clossett & Walsh, who at the suggestion of the commission has done the engineering work on the extension, had a meeting Iwith the city council and arrangements were made that in sures the speedy completion of the road. It was explained by Mr. Newell and Judge Marriner that the cost of the ex tension would be about $70,000, and that only $60,000 of the appropriation made by the last legislature is avail able. Therefore the commission would be short about $10,000. This state of affairs was anticipated by the city council some time ago, and an ordin ance was passed authorizing the sale of $10,000 bonds, the money to be ex pended in building bulkheads at. the lower terminus of the portage road and the inclines leading to it. The extension of the portage to be built commences at Big Eddy, some three miles above The Dalles, and reaches navigable water and a safe harbor at the foot of Washington street. At the terminus will be bulk' heads on which freights may be con veniently transferred from river steamers to wharf boats or onto cars that may be run in on the incline, or may be discharged from cars directly into the steamers. The construction of this extension will complete the connecting link of river transportation with the lower river and the upper Columbia and Snake rivers. Since the completion of the state portage around the falls of Celilo there has been a connection be tween the upper and lower river, but it has not been practicable to handle heavy freight over this line, because of the poor facilities for transferring it from boats to the portage road at the lower terminus. Water for 73,000 Acres. Salem At a meeting nf the desert land board recently State Engineer Liewis and Attorney Ueneral Crawford were authorized to enter into a con tract with the Almoral-Kvans enmnnnv for the reclamation of 73,000 acres of arid lands in what is known as the Powder River vallev nroiect. Netrnt- - i j . n tations have been Dendine- for a venr since the first announcement of the project was made. The total cost of the project will be $3,800,000. It is. in fact, two senar- ate projects- combined, and the segre gation to be reclaimed lies in Baker county within easy access from the main line of the Oregon Railway & Navigation comnanv. Ahnut. 4n nnn acres only is government land, the rest being in private ownershin. The wnrW will go ahead as soon as the necessary wuntirawais can be secured from the Interior department. The lareest rjroiect includes n dam in Thief valley 110 feet high and a concrete ana sona rock riistrihiitinr canal nine miles long, with a carrying capacity of 500 cubic feet of water rier second. The other division will hrincr water through Preston hill by means of a cement lined tunnel two miles long from Balm creek. All the smaller feed canals will be cement lined. Model Farm in Jackson County. Medford The Oreron finnd Rnurli association has offered to build a model road one mile long free in Jackson county. The association asks only that the county officials fumish the labor necessary for the building of the road. Colonel Frank Ray has offered to give the crushed rock necessarv for the building of the road. The association peneves that by building a model road its superiority and advantages will make everyone a good roads advocate. Warships for G. A. R. Encampment.

Albany The improved waterway convention which will be held at Al bany on April 14 for the purpose of se curing the co-operation of Willamette valley towns in organizing a syste matic campaign for the improvement of the Willamette river, promises to bear early fruit The United States government will be asked by the con vention of all commercial bodies in the valley to make a $3,000,000 appropria tion for river improvements. Follow ing the action of the joint meeting of the Albany Business Men's association and the Albany commercial club, held here recently, invitations to attend the convention have been issued by the commercial club to the following cities and towns: Corvallis, Brownsville, Canby, Dayton, Dallas, Estacada, Eu gene, Harrisburg, Hillsboro, Indepen dence, Jefferson, Junction City, Lafay ette, Lebanon, McMinnville, Mount Angel, Newberg, North Yamhill, Ore gon City, Salem, Scio, Sheridan, Springfield, New Era, Stayton, Wil lamette, Gervais, Brooks, Turner, Hub bard, Halsey, Aurora and Silverton. Klamath Falls Depot Finished, Klamath Falls The finishing touch es have been put on the magnificient depot erected by the Southern company in this city. No date for the formal opening of the building has been an nounced and will not be until word is received from San Francisco. When it was announced that the rail road company had decided to erect in this city a depot that would cost in the neighborhood of $20,000 few peo ple believed that that amount would be invested in the structure. But instead of a $20,000 structure the company has given the city one that will cost nearer $40,000, and one that surpasses in elegance anything of its kind in the west. The fact that the Southern Pacific has seen fit to give Klamath Falls such a fine building; is indicative of what that company ex pects this city to be. The depot is the direct outcome of the petition that was sent to Chief Engineer Hood, ask ing that this city be favored with what the company expected Klamath Falls to be. , Realty Active at Elgin.

Klamath Falls Work is to be begun in the near future on a three-story ho tel in the Hot Springs addition. The building permit for the structure has been granted. This, together with the $50,000 hotel planned by the Liver mores, will give the city ample ac comodation in the hotel line. PORTLAND MARKETS.
