Monday, while spraying some fruit
trees in his nursery, a portion of the

A little girl named Fox, fouryeatsold,
was burned to death near Tacoma Sat

ehe with a still younger brother, had
been left with a hired man, who when
ehe was discovered had disappeared. It

from the flames in a stove. The hired
man, named Hanson, was afterwards
found, crazed with grief.

Manv letters were received from the
boys at Manila today, most of them
telling of the monotony of life there. It
will perhaps seem less monotonous
when it is 'learned that they may soon
return home. One letter says: "We
have all chipped in and ordered a big
Christmas dinner. When yoa are en
joying yours, imagine as devouring oars
with the thermometer 100 in the shade."
And now we are inclined to believe
that tbe report published in the Belle

merely "newspaper talk." Yesterday

source of the trouble, and f.-om accounts

Attorney Phelps and Mr. Wm. Long
returned from Canyon City last Friday
evening where they went to arrange the
settlement of the estate of John Long aa
mentioned in last issue. Mr. Phelpa
was appointed administrator for the es
tate, a considerable portion of which is
located in Grant county, while valuable
property is located in San Francisco and
other parts of California. Unfortunate
ly the papers of the deceased were con
sumed in the Canyon City fire necessitat
ing considerable trouble on the part of
Mr. Phelps to locate. He will leave
about the first of the year for California
to locate and look of property there.
Both Mr. Phelps and Mr. Long
were quite enthusiastic in - declaring
that Canyon City had tbe most hos
pitable and cheerful class of people it
has been their fortune to meet. Re
building of the city is going steadily
ahead, and tbe people seem to be well
provided for and grateful for tbe con
sideration of tbe outside world. Tbe
frozen condition of the roads made their
ride a thrilling one, as the mountain
grades were covered with ice, and the
horses urged to the top of their speed to

The Portland Commercial Review
The situation apparently shows no
signs of improvement. Xhe foreign
cargo demand is either entirely checked
or so small that the market has a neg
lected appearance; as a result, tbe situ
ation favors the buying class, who, hav
ing the advantage, are inclined to make
the most of it ; when sales are pressed,
sellers are compelled to make conces
sions. In view of the depression abroad
it is natural the effects should be seri
ously felt here, in almost stagnant trad
ing and abnormally low prices. Large
holders are snuggling bravely against
the downward movement, by withhold
ing supplies, but the' abeence of offers
here is not seriously felt, as the export
ing houses have plenty of grain on hand
to meet the call of chartered tonnage,
and will not make new freight engage
ments until they see the wheat in sight.
Some weak or discouraged holders are
net with from time to time, who are
sellers at tbe market price, but in a gen
eral way tbe market may be called life
less. For Walla Walla club wheat,
prices are down to 5859, the latter,
probably an extreme figure. So little ia
doing in tbe Valley that it is difficult to
name a quotation ; 61 cents is quoted as
a nominal selling price; bluestem, 62c
per bushel. Reports are yery much re
duced from east of the mountains, and
comparatively little coming from the
Valley. Exports daring the week are
one steamer to St. Vincent, two cargoes
choice wheat to Africa, and four
cargoes to the U. K., the whole amount
ing to 473,353 centals.
Tbe local wheat market is still m a doll
condition, the price at present being 52
cents, with no hopeful outlook.
