Spe;a o the
Shebwood, Or., June 16 A sad trag
edy occurred at the home of Albert Kus
bob, living about two miles south of
town, near noon yesterday, when Mrs.
Emma Km bob committed suicide.
Mrs. Kasbob had returned home Ihe
evening beiore Irom the Oregon insane
asylum at Salem on parole, after having
been confined there during the patt
three months on account of a mild form
of dementia, and on being left alone at
home during her husband's hurried
visit to a near neighbor's, found while
wandering about the house, a can of poi
soned wheat used for destroying squirrels
and other small auimals on the farm,
and partook of the contents.
Rtv. J. E drige and wife, near neigh
bor, called in soon after Mr. Ku9bob
had left and found Mrs. Kushob eagerly
eating some s'nd ol preserves presum
ably to destroy the intense bitter taste
remaining in the mouth, yetj they did
not diccover what had ccenrred during
their visit, no evidence of the tfgejy
being vieibleor su'ptctcd by teem. j
Directly after their departure Mr. Kus. I
bob drove op to the gate near the bouse,
when be heard a cry and splash a, the
well close to the kitchen door, and on
ioveetigatirg found tbat his wife hal
jumped in feet foremost, alighting in
water some fuur feet deep.
r?he was reicued as quickly as possible,
and apparently no visible damage lal
resulted from the leap except an abrasion
of the ekin on one finger. After con
sciousness had l.een reetcreJ, rcsui.i-jg
from shock and particles of the poieoced
grain found, she finally admitted she had
lasted it, hut wouid give no further par
ticulars, n'y she hal taken both
methods of ridding herself of life.
Dr. A. L. fiaylor was called in quickly
as possibly, and evtry tfTjrt was made
to counteract the deadly ponoD, but
without succese, convulsion succeeding
convulsion at intervals until about 10
o'clock, when death ended the woman's
sufferings. Mrs. Kuibob was a very
estimable Christian lady, aged 44 years,
and had resided near hero a long lime.
No family except hcrhuihand remain to
mourn her nnlortnnate death.

Wasiiisgtos, Jane 12. As negotia
tions for the right of way fur the boat
railway at The Dalles are in prospect of
completion, the subject of what is best
to do again c-.mci up for consideration
among mej who must deal with the
bulject. UiuUr the act of congress there
is no doubt tbat the engineers will go
forward and prepare plans and specifica
tions for the boat railway and make ar
rangements for cairying out the law.
Although the bouse of representatives
placed in the last river and harbor bill a
claube providing for the repeal of the en
tire boat-railway project, and this could
be taken as a sort of notification to the
war department that one branch of con
gress, at least, did not believe in the
boat railway, the senate afterwards
struck out this repeal, leaving the matter
as il stood, and the engineers now have
nothing else to do bat g'l forward with
the work. However, the delay in secur
ing a right of way, together with the
time which it will take to prepare plans
for the boat railway, wi.l no doubt carry
Ihe affair into the next section of c in
grese, and pooiiuly by that tiaie a differ
ent proposition Day be brought forward.
A great many men who have given the
matter careful tindy believe tbat Ihe
most feasible proposition u canal and
locks, end that it would be a goo-J thing
for the Oregon delegation to make an
effort lo substitute canal and locks for
the boat-railway project. It will be al
most impoesiUe to get appropriations
throngb congress for the boat railway.
The temper of the fio-Jse. wat thoWQ jij tU
passing the repeal of the project, and if
there is a river and harbor bill in the
coming session, there is no reason to
doubt that the committee of rivers and
harbors and the house will ag tin pnt in
Pennsylvania delegation to the next
national convention as against Rrvan,
and connt on the New England, New
York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland,
West Virginia and Illinois delegations.

other states who can be Influenced and

Olvmpia, June 17. George D. Evans
was arraigned before Ihe superior court
this morning, the specific charge against
him being forging a atate warrant of
$(183.13, payable to the Dausch A Limb
Optical Company. This warrant was is
sued April 21, 18S5. When Eyans was
brought into the courtroom the trial
judge and prosecuting attorney stepped
np to him and shook Llin cordially by
the l and. Evans asked further time and
was given nntil Monday to plead. The
superior conrt jury was dismissed today,
with the exception of those men lo the
Riley case. Judge Linn told the fury
men that court would probably be re
convened August 1 for special term to
hear the Evans rase. Eyans' bail has
been fixed at fSOOO, but it Is doubtful if
be can iet this amount.

Nkw Yolic, June 19. A special to the
Journal and Advertirer from Wathing
ton says : Canada has served nolica on
England that she must choose between
the L'nitet! States and the North Ameri
can Dominion in the settlement cf ti.e
Alaskan boundary question. It is stated
on the highest authority that this state
ment represents accurately the condi
tions submitted to England, which hs
delayed the negotiations between Ao,-
bassador Ct.o ite and I.ord Salisbury in
the provisional line of the modus Vivendi.
The position to Canada is known here
officially. The official to whom k ii
kooan fee's authorized in saying th.t
there are only two ways out of the dif
ficulty; first, tbat Canada will volun
tarily recede from her demand lor a Pa
cific tidewater port, or, second, that the
L'nited States shall surrender the prin
riple la'vl down by Secretary Hay, in hie
tentative boundary line, that Americans
will not grant temporarily or otherwise
any port facilities to the Canadian.
That Canada will yield is considered by
the state department officials, who have
diecnsee-I the new and acute phases of
the situation, as improbable.
