from the Portland General Electric
L'ght Company foOOO damages caused
to bis son at Woodiawn in 1897, whtn
be was injured by a broken end of a live
electric light wire striking hiui. The
p'aiotiff alleges carelessness on the part
of tbe company. The boy, by bis father
as guardian, brought a former action
ai;ain U the defendant, which was tried
in March, 1S9S, three months after the
accident occurred, and recovered a
verdict for the full amount sued foi,
$5000. This tbe court reduced to (2500,

court, where the case is still pending.
This case is brought on a different
ground, for the benefit of the father in
stead of the son, on the grounds above
stated. It is also alleged by the plaintiff
that since tbe former trial tbe boy, in
consequence of the ii juries received, has
bad fits, and gone into convulsions and
become peevish, disobedient and quar
relsome, as be had not been before; tbat
be will continue to grow worse, and bis

Capt. H. L. Wells, of Company L. has
been delivering a lecture throughout the
state regarding experiences during tbe
Philippine campaign and particularly
those of . Company L, which bas been
greatly appreciated and well spoken of j
by the papers. Dalles people will be
glad to know that the captain will vieit
our city on the evening of Oct.5tb and
speak in the Vogt opera house. He will
bring with him a stereopticcn and g:ve
views which will add much to the in
terest of the lecture.
Among the stereoscopic views of the
Philippine campaign" is one especially
interesting to Dalles people. Sitting up
on tbe embankment f the fifth trench
at Malabon is E l Lmison, looking as
natural as life, but gazing complacently
at two dead Filipinos lying in tbe
trench. The picture is a perfect one,
and gives an idea of tbe horrible scenes
which become to familiar to soldiers.

and will begin delivering them tomor

County Cleik Kelsay basjust returned
from a trip into the Antelope country,
and through Sherman county. He
visited the famous Silver King mine, on
Trout Creek, near Antelope, and tells
us things are lively in that section. At
the little mining town of Aehwood they
are balding a two-story hotel, have
bank, a general merchandise store and
saloon, beside many houses, barns, etc.,
which go to make up such a town. At
the mine they have a large amount of
ricn ore on tne dumps and are shipping
it out by six-horse teams to More. A
great deal of machinery for operating tbe
mine has been purchased and is now on
the way. Prospectors are numerous in
