The dense fogs which prevailed on
the river a few mornings last week
m ide steamboat navigation both dif
unit and dangerous, and came near
causing several accidents to steamers.
The steamers Mascot and Dixon, per

These steamers usually approach Ihe

warning to work out his tax Tedford
was arrested and taken before Justice
Hall, who wa forced to commit him
In accordance with the provisiona of
the new road law which make it a
finable offence to refuse compliance
with it. The Justice proceeded in
regularity In committing Tedford, but
it is a question whether the county
can afford to pay about 35 cost in
order to punish a man for refusing to
pay a 3 road tax. If the law U to
be enforced somebody must be made
an aiamula of. and the county can
probably establish a precedent now.

Our genial friend Clarence White,
went down to the Chitskanie fishing
last Monday, and returned with two
bull heads and one poor, alck, afarved
sucker, that was not able to tand the
hard limes, and had drifted Out on a
riffle to die. Clarence spinned us the
regulation, large-nixed fish story, with
a few new and interesting variations.
He says thnt just before he got to the
river he saw a nun who had a large
creel over one shoulder, Handing on
the bank, stringing sixteen inch trout
on a stick, and wondered what he was
doing that for when he had a banket

stranger and found that bis basket waa
chock full of fourteen inch trout, anu
that he was preparing to carry the
large ones homo on a pole over his
shoulder. Clarence offered tho fellow
four bits apiece for two dozen of thorn
but the man wna stubborn aud said
that he didn't have any more than he
wauled himself, besides, a four-bit
piece w.ik not worth as much aa a trout
since the house repealed tne ennrnian
b,ll. The next time Mr. White goes
trout nulling he will not carry his bait
in a lug. and hoiiea that he win oe

somewhat memorable by sbowina parsons
wlist a road nuieivlor can do tinner tne
laws of Oregon. In opening the Marsh

aliened of calling for a second ssneasment
and persons liable for work were ordered
outs second time. Mot of such persons
nerforiued the labor themselves or by suu
stltute, but a few disputed the right of the
assessor to 'all for more than one assess
ment vearlr. and declined to work. Home
of those having no property to levy on were
treated to a copy oi complaint una sum
mons from the justice of the peace, made
by the sapervlaor. Here was a starting
point to test the matter and tbose interested
were at first determined to enter alenal
protest SKaiuit the supervisor's action, but
after figuring a little on the probable ex
pense and the little certainty as to the
result, all but two concluded that the eas
