Tha Telephone. I. In.
Trie county court ha granted the
franchise to The Dalle and Wamic Tele
phone line, incorporated by the Gordon
company, on Feb. 28, 1893, in preference
to the Roland Co. incorporated on March
8, lSi)3. The Gordon Co. propose to of
fer one half of the capital stock of their
company to the people of the country
traversed at par. This is certainly a
generous proposition, and shows a good
spirit. It is a well known fact that
the telephone line in operation in
Eastern Oregon pay J dividend on the
investment of over 100 per cent, per an
num. The new line will be 35 miles in
length, touching at wfur, Wamic,
Kingsley and Tygh Valley. The projec
tor of the enterprise will commence
putting in pole at once and expect to
have the line in working operation by
the first of June.

Genuine Old Violin.
W. E. Fowler, of the First National,
has in his jossession in this city what is
said to be a genuine old violin. He has
had it tested by experts, all of w hom
pronounce it genuine. We bad the
pleasure of examining this instrument
yesterday, and while inspecting it, the
ninety-nine year of it existence, w hen
brought to the realization of we poor
mortals, can but make u feel bow little
indeed we are. The violin wa made in
1794 by Perry, at Dublin, Ireland, and
though not of a standard make, like the
old Cremona, is by far sweeter than the
instruments of the present age, which
quality makes it valuable. The violin
is not for sale, as it wa a present to Mr.
Fowler several years ago by some friend
A Childloss H
Smith and hi wife have every luxury
that money can buy, but there is one
thinir lackintr to their happiness. Both
are fond of children, bat no little voice
prattle, no little feet patter in their
beautiful home. "I would give ten
years of my life if I could have one
healthy, living child of my own,"
Smith often says to himself. No woman
can be the mother of healthy offspring
unless Bhe is herself in good health.
If she suffer from female weakness,
general debility, bearing-down pain,
and functional derangements, her physi
cal condition it such that she cannot
hope to have healthy children. Dr.

I'rohahljr Hoard of Health.
A meeting of the city council will be
held tonight to consider the matter of
the sewer between Ijtughlin and Jelfcr
It is probable, also, that a board of
health will be appointed, from the in
terest manifested at the last regular
meeting. In reference to this matter a
complaint has been made about privy
vaults in the west part of town, which
demands some sort of action, aa it con
stitute a great menace to the health of
those who live near them. The ordi
nance relating to their being connected
with sewvra is all right, so far as the
future is concerned, but the former ac
cumulations of filth are not disposed of
in the right manner, being simply cov
ered up, and by the conditions of the
ground are insoluble. When warm
weather comes, the impurities will be
brought to the surface and subject to the
inhalation of all in the vicinity. It
should be destroyed by chloride of lime
and disposed of for good.
Tha Question of Sewerage Occupies Moat
of tho Hpeclal Meeting.
The meeting of the city council Satur
day night resulted in the appointment
of Messrs. S. B. Adams, Jno. Marden
and Smith French as a committeo to
determine the rates of assessment of
taxpayer for repairing the Washington
street sewer. A legal opinion was read
relating to who would be subject to as
sessment, and a list compiled by the re
corder and street commissioner will be
furnished the committee, comprising all
who are benefited by the repair.
A general discussion was bad about
sewers, the opinion of the entire council
being that the present sewerage of the
city was far from satisfactory, and that
the sewers should be extended and peo
ple compelled to drain into them. The
mayor directed that between now and
next regular meeting the council should
obtain all the information necessary in
relation to the matter, so that a well
defined policy of sewerage could be
started and maintained.

FOUND DEAD IN BED.
Joseph Cshwlndner Expires Near WoTur
from Concussion of the Brain.
A tragical occurren-, resulting in the
death of Joseph Gshwindner, happened
at Henderson's ranch, about five miles
from Dufur, Saturday night.
The deceased sent in for a bottle of
whisky by a young man named Staats.
The druggist, Mr. Balch, supplied it,
after questioning and satisfying himself
as to its intended use. It seems that
Gshwinder has always borne a reputa
tion aa being temperate, but on this oc
casion was feeling ill and depressed, and
believed himself to be in need of a etiin
Arriving at the ranch the whisky was
delivered and drinking a little made him
reckless and in a temporary frenzy he
drank a large quantity of it. He then
went out on the porch, and shortly alter
fell headlona face downwards to the
ground for his full length. Those in the
room soon came out and observing him
spoke, receiving an inarticulate grunt in
response. He was then gathered ap and
put to bed, snoring heavily. In the
morning, when entering the chamber,
he was found to be dead.
Coroner Fastwood was at once sum
nioned from The Dalles, who empanelled
a jury and in accordance with the facts,
rendered the following verdict :
Di'itb, Or., March 12, 1893.
We, the jury empanelled by tha cor
oner of Wasco county, to examine into
the cause of the death of Joseph
Gshwindner, found dead at the farm of
Edward Henderson, on 15-Mile creek,
Wasco county, Oregon, find from care
ful examination of witnesses and from
testimony of the physician making the
medical examination, that said Joseph
Gshwindner came to bis death by con
mission of the brain, caused by a fall
from a porch and striking the ground on
his head ; and that no person I in any

Gshwindner ha9 no relatives in this
vicinity and his only effect were a bun
dle of paptrs now in tho coroner' pos
session. One of them is the receipt for
au application to send 100 to a brother
in Austria for fare to Oregon, which
amount will probably now be refunded
to the county and used for burial ex

As the west-bound train drew up at
the depot last evening a tramp was seen
to uncoil himself from a brake-beam of
the forward coach, fall to the track, and
with an effort drag himself to the plat
form. Recovering sufficiently to speak,
the man stated that to escape the rain
and piercing wind be had forced his
head and shoulder forward under the
brake rod, burying hi face in bi bands.
On attempting to resume an upright
position he was prevented by the brake
rod bolt catching in hi coat, the
cramped position, small space occupied
and the rapid motion of the train mak
ing au effort to extricate himself Impos
sible. The man was almost u neon scion
on reaching Pendleton, through the
blood rushing to hi brain. When last
een, however, Mr. "IIoIkj" was hover
ing around the bead of tho train, with
his eye on the "blind baggage."
Koahland Kroa. Kali.
Koihland Bros., dealers in wool,
hides and furs, the largest and oldest
wholesale house on tho Pacific coast,
failed yesterday at Portland. The firm
was one of more than twenty yeara
standing. The wholesale house, at 10
North Front street, and the entire ware
house holdings are now in the posses
sion of the Bank of British Columbia,
their only creditors.
Last evening Mr. Koshland made the
following statement in regard to the
failure: "My business is a total wreck.
The trouble ha been coming on for the
past year. F.verthing in our line baa
been on the downward tendency. We
had a big stock of goods on hand which
was sold at a loss. We were deeply in
debt to the Bank of British Columbia,
and as we could not hold up any longer
we simply turned over to them our en
tire business, which will be sufficient to
satisfy their claims. The bank is oar
only creditor, and outside of it we don't
owe any man a dollar. Our losses in
the fire at Boston a year ago were pretty
large, and that hastened the precipita
tion of the trouble."
On Ills Muscle.
Colonel Frank J. Parker, editor of the
Walla Walla Statesman, and L. C. Gil-
iam, a prominent republican of Walla
Walla, had a short but rattling fight in
the lobby of the Hotel Spokane Tuesday,
according to tho Tribune. Parker and
Gilliam have always been the best of
friends. They were engaged in conver
sation, when Gilliam referred to the
inauguration of "the stuffed prophet."
What's that?" demanded Parker.
Gilliam repeated the statement, when
Parker exclaimed, "Grover Cleveland is
now prebident of the United States, and
you can't insult hi in in my presence,"
and grabbed a newspaper which Gilliam
was reading and tore it up. Gilliam
seized Parker and burled him half way
across the room. Parker was back in
instant and landed a vicious right-
band blow on Gilliam's eye. At this
point bystanders parted the combatants.
The affair wa9 suppressed by the local
