Tho county court yesterday after
noon opened bids for the construe
tton of tho Sllverton-Marquam high
way a distance of four and one-
third miles, but, owing to the fact
that the bids wero considered by the
board a little excessive no award was
maao, and no dellnlto action will
probably be taken with relation to
them for some time.
There were two bidders the Owl
Construction Company, whose bid
was $64,911.43, and tho Capital Im
provement Company, which bid $64,-
644. These bids represent an outlay
of nearly $16,000 a mile. The close
ness of tho bids suggests some hatd
figuring cn the part of tho blddera.
The highway in question has been
involved in considerable litigation,
going to the supreme court of tho
state. An appeal was prosecuted
from this tribunal to the United
States court, but, while It was pend
ing, a compromise was effected be
tween the litigating parties.

The now currency is on a dollars

Coins are now being minted, and
American engravers are at work on

an Intrinsic value of 72 cents. This
coin will be supplemented by Issues
of half dollars, quarters and dlme3.
The currency issue has been assigned
to the 'Imperial Chinese bank, which

attorney-general has had tho subject

that it would bo .to the effect that the
constitution contains nothing which
would inhibit tho governor from tak
ing action along tho line suggested,
and that, therefore, ho would pos
sess the power.
Adjutant-General Flnzer's reason
for requesting tho opinion Is that ho
contemplates asking the governor for
a naval reserve for tho state, and,
should tho opinion of the attorney-
general be favorable he will ho
doubt take such action. It is under
stood that the adjutant-genoral has
received advices from tho govern
ment that, should ho decide to put !n
naval reserves, that he may havo the
use of the battleship Yorktown. All
the states on tho coast, savo Oregon,

signs of Insanltyl
Cooper entered the room where
Mrs. Buss was preparing breakfast.
Without a word he drew a revolver,
and shot the woman down. The re
port of the gun brought Buss run-

It was alleged that the rates to

It was cited as, a specific example
that the rate from Sacramento to
