Here i what the Portland Orcconian
lately paid about the Georgia Minstrels
who are billed to nppear at 'Wrights Hall in
in thin city to-morrow evening. "Richards
fc Pringle's Georgia Minstrels began a
short season at this house Inst evening and
were greeted with a good audience. The
company is of good material throughout,
Billy Kersands being a host himself. This
program was a very enjoyable one, and
the tir.it part songs were woll sung. George
Jacmon's 'Brother Gardner'! Wedding

fairly bringing down the house. Especial
ly well tendered weru the characteristic ne
gro melodies. The sketches and special
nets by Kcrsands. Jackson and Mallory
Bros, earned unstinted applause, aud their
dacing was as clever as that of any minstrels
seen here in a long time. Billr Kcrsands
imitation of a ballet dancer convulsed the
house. George Jackson too, showed him
self a veryclever comedian and good sing

Judging from t lie number of letters rc
ceived in this city from persons in different
parts of Illinois and Indiana. "Mountain
Mac" MeCommas is "getting there in great
shape" In the disposal of lots in the Lin-
nlngton addition at $50 per lot. The cast
cm suckers think they have made a good
investment until they arc notified by the
sheriff that taxes arc due, then they will
write back making inquiries about their
purchase, and receive in reply a not very
encouraging report. Still some day the
property may become valuable when Judge
I. D. Haines builds his proposed cable
road. No telling what the future mav
liring forth. Baker Democrat.
This remedy is becoming so well known
and so popular as to need no special men

Bitters will cure all diseases of the Liver
and Kidneys, will remove Pimples, Boils
Salt Khenm and other affections caused by
impure blood. Will drive Malaria from
the system and prevent as well as cure all
Malarial fevers. For cure of Headache

True an Gospel.
The greatest drawback to the success and
developed enlargement of any town says
the Boise Democrat, is a class of men who
arc dead to any and all enterprises which do
not .scenie to point directly to their own
pockets and the conncquent enlargement of
their own fortunes, forgetting that such u
course in relation to public policy retards
the growth of towns and cities as nothin
else will do. Location is favorable; but
this without enterprise is worse than where
the location is less favorable and the en
terprise of the citizens of a place is marked
.and constantly attracting attention from
Layman's License Law in Force.
Judge Catlin, county judge of Multno
mah county, holds that tho Layman law
5 how in effect, not withstanding it lacks
the approval of Governor Pennoycr. It
contalnes an emergency clause reading,
"Inasmuch as there is urgent need of a law to
prevent and punish the unlawful sale ot
spiritous malt and vinous liquors, this act
shall take effect upon its approval by tho
governor,'' and Judgo Catlin mantains
that it was the intent of tho legislature to
put the law into effect immediately, und
further that the law is now in force just the
same as if Governor Pennoycr had signed
I)oai not Affect the Hunt Road.
It has been thought by some that the
"arbitration contract" entered into by the
Northern Pacific nnd the Union Pacific
railroad companies whereby they secure
control of the O. R. & N. Co's road, would
pat a stop to the building of branch roads
in this section of the state. This is not tho
case. A few days ago in response to an en
quiry from parties in 'Walla Walla Mr.
Hunt wired from the cast that it would not
affect the O. & "W. T railroad in tho least.
