Looking for Substitute.
The condition of the rubber trada brought about by the increased demand and the many new uses for rubber, has exoited a great interest in the possibil ity of inventing a substitute. In England a substitute called "oxilin" was claimed to be a substv tute, and a clergyman of Denver, Colo., , invented a substitute called "perchoid" lor which the same claim was made. Ihese substitutes are identical in their composition, being made from linseed oil, the composition known as linoleum being the suggestion of both inventors, but the oil in the new oom position is not fully oxidized, litharge being used and currents of cold air, Continued experiments yielded a more and more elastic substance, and it was found that with sulphur quite similar effects were produced, comparatively, as with rubber. Oxilin and perchoid can also be vulcanized, but in no case was it able to fulfill all the require' merits of rubber. For bicycle tires it has been found to serve quite well, but it lacks the life and durability of rub ber. Oxilin and perchoid can be pro duoed at a cost of from 5 to 6 cents per pound, and this fact, coupled with the price of rubber at 80 cents per pound, and that the claimed substitutes hufce not been introduced with such, favora' ble competing prices, shows conclusive' ly that it is not likely to affect the present condition of the rubber market. Latter discoveries have worked veritable miracles, but it does not seem at all likely that a good substitute, for rubber ill J.' . 1 ' wm.oe tusooverea soon. KLONDIKE.

Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. It cured me of a fibroid tumor in my womb. " Doctors could donothinjrfor me, and they could not cure me at the hospital. I will tell you about it I "I had been in my usual health, but had worked 'quite hard. When my monthly period came on, I flowed very badly. The doctor gave mo medicine, but it did me no good. He said the flow must be stopped if possible, and he must find the cause of my trouble. " Upon examination, ho found there was a fibroid tumor in my womb, and gave me treatment without any benefit whatever. About that time a lady called on me, and recommended Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound j said she owed her life to it. I said I would try it, and did. Soon after the flow became more natural and regular. I still continued taking the Compound for some time. Then the doctor made an examination again, and found every thing all right. . The tumor had passed away, and that dull ache was gone."

Two masked thugs yesterday extorted f 180 from Levi Grant, an aged farmer, who lives near here, by holding him over a blazing fire till he disclosed its hiding place. After they left, Grant managed to crawl a quarter of a mile from his cabin in search of assistance, but final ly fainted fiom the excruciating pain his burns caused him. He was brought here by a neighbor, who found hira ly. ing by the roadside, and his injuries were dressed. It is hardly likely that he will survive. Grant is a widower, 75 years old, and lives alone on a farm, his dwelling be ing about a quarter of a mile from the road, and hidden from it by a tall pop. lar hedge. He was sitting by the fire lust night, having removed his shoes preparatory to jgoina to bed, when one of the windows was smashed in with a bludgeon and he was suddenly seized from behind by a masked man, while a second confronted him and demanded his money. As soon as he found breath to speak, he protested that he had none, The thugs then lifted him bodily and held him over the fire that was blazing on the broad hearth, till he screamed for mercy and promised to give them all the money he had if they would re- lease him. He was taken from the fire and allowed to take out his purse, but when his torturers found that it only contained $40. they thrust him back into the fire and held hira till, in his agony, he told them where $140 more was hidden. They quickly found this and made their escape, leaving him writhing on the cabin floor. A search is being made for the robbers, but thus far without result. CANNERS COMBINE. Organization of Columbia ltlver Packer , Formed. Portland, Or., Feb. 14. Formal pa pers were signed here yesterday and an organization perfected of what is to be known as the Columbia River Canneries Company. The incorporators are J. O, Hanthorn, B. A. Seaborg and T. B, McGovern. The- oapital stock is fixed for the present at $500,000, but it is understood that this may be increased as the business of the company shall re quire. It is stated by the incorporators that the company starts oil with all financial arrangements made to enable them to put up as large a pack this sea son as may be deemed advisable. They further state that selling arrangements have already been consummated with the firm of Delafleld, McGovern & Co., of New York, which insures a market for at least 100,000 cases of this spring's catch of salmon. Provision is also made in the by-laws oi tne company lor tne tuture auniis sion of, other packing concerns on the Columbia river, at such times and on terms agreed to by the original incor porators. The canneries whioh will be controlled and operated by the new company this season' are among the largest and bestNequipped on the river. It is understood -, that a number of the email packers have not joined the organization, though a large majority of the trade in Columbia river fish will be under its control. SALTER WORDEN'S CASE. General Belief la That Sentence Will Be Commuted. San Francisco, Feb. 14. Governor Budd has as yet taken no official cogni zance of the confession and plea for mercy made by Salter D. Worden. Be fore it was made he had reprieved the death sentence of the condemned man, postponing the date of execution from February 11 to June 15. As stated at the time, this was done chiefly, for the purpose of giving several medical ex perts an opportunity of examining into Worden's mental condition, the plea of insanity having been set up by his counsel. Ills voluntary contession is regarded as a virtual abandonment of this plea, and it is on his personal ap peal for olemency that the governor is now expected to act. ' The prevailing impression is that Worden will not die on the gallows, but will reoeive a com mutation of sentence to life imprison ment. Battle With Amazons. , Cincinnati. O., Feb. 14. A Times- Star special from Vanceburg, Ky., says: At Esculapia, this county, . this morn ing, Constables Cropper and Thacker attempted to arrest an old lady named Crowe, who was at her home with sev eral grown-up daughters. Before the officers realized it, one of the girls flew at them like an enraged tigeress, with a big knife, dangerously wounding both officers. By this time, the old lady and another daughter drew revolvers and the officers realized it was a -fight for life. The battle raged for a few mo ments, and after the smoke ha J cleared, Mrs. Crowe was found dead and shot to pieces, and one daughter was dead. Those who survived are in a dangerous condition. .

Million Dollar Fire. New York, Feb. 14. Levi P.

The firemen- had a bard battle, and, for three hours there was every prospect of a great conflagration. Every fire com pany in the city from Forty-ninth street to the Battery was called out. . The World says that the loss - from all sources will reach $1,000,000. WEEKLY MARKET LETTER. Trade Conditions in the Leading Cities of the World. There was uniform strength in all speculative markets during the past week. Chicago May wheat sold from 84 to 98 8-8; May pork, $10.30 per bbl to $10.75; Liverpool and foreign markets up in proportion. The Ameri can visible supply decreased 888,000 bushels during the week and now to tals 85,634,000 bushels compared with 46.658,000 bushels last year. In 1897 the decrease for the corresponding week' was 1,227,000 bushels. The amount on passage increased 1,400,000 and the world's shipments were 5,801, 000 bushels, of whioh America con tributed 8,420,000 bushels. The first of the year wheat stocks at Buffalo, Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore were ,8,615,000. At the close of last week there were 6,092,000 showing a decrease of 2,523,000 bush els for the five weeks. During this time exports of wheat alone from the four points named were 6,018,000. These figures show that the four points received 8,495,000 more than can be aocounted for, except on the theory that the wheat was shipped direct from Ohio. Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, Virginia, . and other terri tory , immediately tributary to those seaports. It will surprise the trade to learn that Atlantio ports are receiving weekly about 700,000 bushels from points outside of the visible. All along the line wheat seems to be com ing from unexpected sources. The movement in the Northwest is increas ing and dumbfounded even the bears. However, Mr. Leiter seems to hold prices up and we would not be sur prised to see a further advance. . Portland Market. Wheat Walla Walla, 74 75c; Val ley and Bluestem, 7778o per bushel.

Success Came to Him. Nearly every man who has come out of Dawson during the past two months or more has had something to say of the "frozen egg man." They met him at various points between the Chilkoot summit and the Yukon river, trudging along with one companion and four dogs, pulling a cargo pf frozen eggs bound for the Klondike. Eggs at Daw son are worth a dollar or more each and this high price proved such an in centive to a Portland man that he re solved to freeze a lot of them and take them in. The egg man has been the source of no little amusement for the Elondikers who have come out. They have frequently laughed at his fool hardy speculation and often predicted his failure.- He has been a prolific land mark and one of the stock questions which Klondikers have asked each other here has been, "Where did you meet the egg man?" The egg man has sold his eggs and re turned with a sack which manyaKlon' diker might well envy. His name is Charles Vest. Mr. Vest left Portland last October on the steamer Elder. Before leaving he obtained 1,743 dozen eggs. He broke and packed them in tin cani, holding one gallon each, or six dozen. The cans were sealed, frozen and put in ioe. They weighed 2,025 pounds in oold storage. t With one man to help and his dogs Mr. Vest hurried the eggs up. to Sheep oamp and buried . them in the snow. He put four cans in a sack and tied the sack over the dogs' backs. Each dog carried 28 pounds in this way. Once over the summit the cans were piled on sleds, pulled by the dogs and the jpur ney continued. I - " Several adventures befell Mr. Vest and his companion on the way.. On December 21 they stopped at a cabin and bought supper and lodging. They bought some moccasins of one of their hosts.' In the morning one can of the eggs, now becoming more and more precious, was gone. , Mr. Vest had his suspicions but had no evidence. He asked his host aboutj the missing, can but got no satisfaction, although his suspicions were confirmed. There were others oamping at the cabin and from these two . or ' three days later Vest obtained corroborative evidence as to the guilt of 'the suspect. The thief had gone towards the coast but Vest followed him and took him before the police. Confronted with the evidence Of his crime the fellow confessed. . The police decreed that the man should be punished by giving up his outfit to the man he had wronged. This was done and Mr. Vest got $185 per 'dozen for the can of eggs. At Thirty-Mile river an adventure of a different sort overtooK . tne egg man. A raft was built to float down the river. Vest stayed on shore to line the raft down and his companion was aboard the raft.' The ice at one place was not strong enough to support Mr. Vest's weight and he was forced to let the line go. The raft went spin ning down the river at a fearful rate, the anxious owner running along shore to keep up with it. Suddenly a rook rimmed with ice appeared in the track of the raft. - In a moment the raft had dived under the ice, the rider had jumped for his life to the rock and the cargo had spilled into the swift stream. It was bitter cold, but the situation was desperate. .. Vest did not ponder long upon . what to do. He plunged into the stream and pulled out the sacks one at a time. To do this he had to run along and into the stream for a mile and a half. His clothes froze to him, but he saved his eggs. Then he went back to hi3 companion and threw out a rope and towed him ashore. Three men who happened to be camp ing near by gave the two wet men shel ter until they had dried and warmed themselves. Sixty-five miles further down Vest reached the Big Salmon where Major Walsh was oamping. Major Walsh wanted supplies and he bought Mr. Vest's eggs at $3 per dozen. The eggs yielded $5,211, whioh, added to the $1,1.10, amounted to $6,821 as the total product of Mr. Vest's undertaking. Some Lines on Alaska."
