A Tramp r.unrt la Paaeeaeloa of Bar
Ktariaad Article..
3. H. Bennett, who lives at the mouth
of the Des Chutes river in Sherman
county, lost a number of articles on the
17th, by the bouse being burglarized.
The burglar, evidently fearing capture,
concealed himself and his stolen property
in an unused scow and yesterday, put
ting such as he could carry in a sack,
started in the direction of The Dalles.
In the puck was a gun, the muzzle of
which sticking out, attracted the atten
tion of an Indian who at once struck
him for a trade. It so happened that
the Indian had frequently been at Ben
nett's bouse, and knew Bennett's things
almost as well as be did himself. When
the sack was opened the Indian thrust
his arm in and was rewarded by cutting
his hand upon a stolen butcher knife.
The Indian then noticed a violin, pair
of shoes, hair clipper, halter and bridle,
all of which he knew was Bennett's
property. The thief supposed the In
dian merely wanted to trade, but not so.
As soon as possible he informed Sheriff
Ward, and at 10 o'clock last night
Deputies Pbirman and Jackson walked
np the track and met him coming in,
when he was promptly nabbed. He
looked quite crestfallen, aud it was ap
parent that he was no more looking for
officers than he was bis great grand
Other articles stolen were a set of car

When the defendant was arraigned
this morning before Justice Sohutz be
gave his name as Thoa. Gilbert, and said
he bad no home. He is very seedy and
has every appearance of tramp. He
was not represented by an attorney and
was given a chance to make a statement.
He said he went aboard the scow on the
13th and found the articles contained in
the sack there. He let them remain un
til yesterday when lie took them to
where the Indian met him. Said he
passed Bennett's house and was told the
telegraph operator lived there andthat
he had been robbed and a murder com
mitted. The above statement seems wholly
irrelevant to the case, and will do but
little to establish Gilbert's innocence.
He was remanded to jail and the case
will come before the grand jury.

Tba Government Win..
Judge Bellinger's opinion in the O. &
C. forfeited land claims begins with a
careful resume of the case in hand, and
shows how the dispute arose, going back
to the original acts passed by congress.
In the next to the last paragraph of the
opinion the following statement was
made : "The terms of the granting act
in this case are unmistakable. They
provide for a continuous grant or single
line of road from Portland to Astoria,
with a second or branch line from a
junction at Forest Grove to the Yamhill
river. The theory of the government as
to the continuity of these lines cannot
be ruoie explicitly stated than the act
states it." The final words of the opin
ion are: "I conclude that the lands in
the quadrant are included in the lands
forfeited to the government by the act
of January 31st, 1685, and such will be
the decree."
Judge Williams and District Attorney
Mays argued the complaint for the gov
ernment, and Fen too aud Bronaugh for
the defendant. The defendant will
probably appeal to the United States
court of appeal.
Caa't Get the Faper.
A week ago the Moro Observer spoke
of the difficulty of getting the Mount
aineer and The Ciikonici.s. We did
not notice the item locally, believing
there may have been an excuse some
how, but the Antelope Herald this week
says : . "One of the best changes in post
masters we know of will beuiade at The
Dalles some time this fall. We do not
know who will apply for the position
yet, but most any one could find won
derful room to improve over the present
management. About once a week The
Dalles Mountaineer and Chronicle
(dailies) come together, and the rest of
the time one comes and sometimes none
at all. Very often the papers that are
mailed in The Dales office do not reach
us for over a week. This is unmitigated
carelessness, and whoever is mixing the
mail like this should be fired out in short
order. Put someone in that will attend
to his business properly and promptly."

Section 4 of the laws of Oregon reads
as follows: "Any person or persons
who shall willfully set fire to any wooded
country, or forest belonging to the
United States, or to any person or per
sons, shall be deemed guilty of a mis
demeanor, and upon conviction before a
court of competent jurisdiction, shall be
punished by a fine not exceeding one
thousand dollars, or imprisonment not
exceeding one year, or by both such
(ine and imprisonment; provided that
nothing herein contained shall apply to
any person who in good faith sets a back
fire to prevent the extension of a lire

Naurhty Soil'
Some of the naughty big boys who
frequent that portion of the sidewalk in
front of Sam Klein's have worked a
practical joke all day to their unbounded
amusement. They fixed up a dry goods
box in a most inviting way for the way
farer, and then maliciously engaged him
in conversation, taking a most unac
countable and sudden interest in his do
mestic or other personal affairs. Parties
they have not spoken to for a week would
be hailed to share in their conversation.
The secret was easily explained to each
upon taking the silently proffered seat,
for like truth, they would rise again,
and very quickly, just as if they had just
thought of the letter their wife gave
them to mail ten days ago, and with a
movement toward their hip pocket to
see if it was still there. The
action was the same, but the mo
tive was different, for a pin had been in
geniously inserted in the box with the
business end up and its presence was al
ways mora quickly felt than seen. All
took the joke in good part and then
waited for the next victim.
Strange what makes boys so devilish.
Mew Gam Law.
The new ;ame law, now in force, pro
hibits the sale of any part of the deer at
any time. On page 91 of the Session
Laws of 1893 the new law can be found.
In reference to this matter it reads:
"Every person who shall at any time
after the passage of this act, sell or offer
for sale the b'e or horns or meat of any
deer, either in a fresh, salted, dried,
smoked or jerked condition, shall be
guilty of a misdemeanor." The law also
fixes a penalty for the violation of this
act as follows : "Every person convicted
of a violation of any provision of this act
shall be punished by a fine of not less
than $50 nor more than 300, or im
prisonment in the county jail of the
county where the offense was committed
for not less than three months, or both
such fine and imprisonment. Half of
such money collected for fines for viola
tion of the provisions of this act shall be
paid to the informer, and the rest into
the county treasury of the county in
which the offense was committed.

Editor of The C'hkonu !..
In your issue of yesterday, vou pub
lished an extract trom the Antelope ller
ald which does me and The Dalles post
office an injustice.
. Supposing that The Dulles dailies ar
rive in Antelojie at the irregular times
stated, r which I doubt) neither the Her
ald or Chronicle have anv right to as
sume that the fault is in this office.
This is not the first time that the
Herald, without reason, has referred un
favorably to this office ; nor the first by
a long ways that the Chronicle has
done so. And 1 deire now to state that
in none of the cases mentioned by either
of these papers, was tlioioast blame to
be attached to this office.
The thing of unfair criticism of this
office has assumed the proportions of a
persecution, and in order to determine
who is in the wrong, I hereby defy the
Antelope Herald to substantiate a single
word of its adverse criticism of this of
fice and demand of the Chronicle, if it
believes these charges or any of the
numerous other ones that it has pub
lished concerning this office; that it
make a formal complaint to the chief
postoffice inspector at San Francisco.
If any of these criticisms are made
good by an impartial investigation, I
agree to apologize and amend my ways.
If these papers fail to make complaint
or an investigation shows that this office
was censured without reason, I should
expect an apology from them if they
were imbued with any of the instincts
of gentlemen. Yours Respectfully,
M. T. Nolan.
We are glad to note the fairness of the
postmaster as indicated throughout his
letter, though feeling that there is no call
for a challenge. We are not responsible
for what the editor of the Antelope
Herald may write, and as for anything
Tub Chronicle may have said in the
past, we are prepared to substantiate
any assertion made, whenever the item
shall be specifically indicated, so that we
may intelligently proceed. It has been
a great seurce of annoyance to The
Chronicle for months past that sub
scribers have failed to receive their
papers. Every precaution has been
taken in our office to render the packages
secure and the addresses legible. Yet
complaints have been made by the same
parties several weeks in succession,
which sometimes results in the loss of
the subscriber or the benefit of "speak
ing his mind." The Chronicle knows
one thing there are irregularities and
non-delivery of papers t various places
on the stage routes. We make no com
plaint of points touched by rail, only
sujh places as Antelope, Endersby, etc.
If the country postmasters are derelict,
they do Mr. Nolan a great injury in
directly, an additional reason why they
should not be permitted to retain their
Firemen of Oregon.
The firemen of Oregon will bold their
next annual meeting in this city on the
4th of next month. The occasion will
be a memorable one, and no pains is
being spared to make it one of the most
enjoyable of events, in which the public
generally may share. All the sports will
be first-class, the games and races hotly
contested by the very best men in their
lines Oregon can produce.
In the morning there will be a parade
through the principal streets of our own
and visiting firemen and the mayor and
prominent citizens will take part. Hose
races, ball games and various sports will
consume the entire day. The firemen
will have a grand banquet at the con
clusion of their annual meeting. A ball
will be given in the evening at the Uma
tilla house, and a general invitation is
extended to all of our citizens to be
Sherman County Wheat.
RuruB,Or.,Aug.21, 1893.
The first load of wheat of this year's
crop for Sherman county was received
here today from N. W. Thompson of
Monkland. No price was offered and
the wheat was stored with the Farmer's
Co-operative Warehoiise Association.
The berry is good, much better than
last year, but not so plump as that of
'90 and '91, though the crop is reported
much larger than ever mifed in this
county lcfore. Conservative estimates
place the crop at 800,000 buchtls but it
is placed as high as 1,000,01X1 bushels by
many. This is, when the size of the
country is taken Into consideration, a
very large crop and the farmers of Sher
man county will bo busy till the holi
days. W. H. News.
