At the circuit court this afternoon,
after exeni ing the wailing jurors until
nine o'clock tomorrow, the eourt pro
ceeded to the consideration of the suit of
Queen Patten for a divorce from ber
husband Eldon Patten. The reason al
leged was cruel and inhuman treatment.
The testimony reported by referee Wer
rick disclosed many cruel acts on the
part of the defendant, running over a
period of about two years. He had
threatened to cut his wife's throat and
to burn the house over her head when
she would be asleep, and had attempted
on one occasion to kill her, using the
usual weapon of the negroes, a razor.
Patten was also shown to be a drunken,
worthless sort of man who would not
work so long as he could force his wife
to provide food for him, and bad spent
a large portion of his time lu Portland,
sendiug his evenings with the dusky
demi-monde, who frequent the White
chapel district. After hearing the testi
mony, Judge Bradshaw made an order
granting a decree of absolute divorce,
and the care of her children. Patteu is
the same man who waa arrested a few
weeks since for assaulting his wile with
a rator and for which he spent a term In
the county jail. He disappeared when
released, and has not since lieen heard

The ice commenced breaking below
the.dallcs of the river today and drifted
down, forming a veritable river glacier
in miniature. The main body of the
ice nt thiit point has drifted down about
one hundred yards and tho old trail
across the river looks funny in con se
quence, being disconnected from the one

Tho Inland Star, which was put on
the river last summer by Mr. Kennedy,
is damaged considerably. The accumu
lating Ice has torn oil' her rudder and
carried it down stream, and it is thought
it is cracked from stem to stern, but the
latter fact cannot be definitely ascer
tained until the ice, which has forced it
over en its side and blocked the space
up, has gone.
The damage sustained by the D. P &

Xewa waa received in this city. today
oi the sensational death by his own
hand of Hugh Southerland, Goldendale.
The fatality occurred about midnight of
Tuesday, during intermission of a ball
at the Goldendale hall. He had been
drinkingluring the evening, but it is
not supposed that the sole cause of his
action was due to inebriety. He seemed
to-be enjoying himself in the usual man
ner, but at 12 o'clock went home and
there, within earshot of his wife, fired
the shot that ended hi. life. The pistol
need waa a 32-caliber.

they would recline on her back, then, to
