8 Men Mmhiho. An Astoria dis
patch of February.24, to the Oregon
Ian, says : "Mix men I a boat atartod
from the camp o( the bridge-bnildors,
on Young's bay, the new railroad
bridge, to come down the river clam
ing near Fort Slovens. They have
not since been beard from, although a
inarching party went after them. The
f riouds of the men fnnr they have been
blown to tea and drowned. Tbe su
perintendent of construction aayi he
does not think any more lorioua acci
dent has happened than some slight
damage to the boat, necessitating their
laying up for repairs. No heavy steins
tiave prevailed since they went out,
and two of the men are old sailors."
No Mors Horse Meat. The horse
csnnory at Linnton has ahut down,
and will, perhaps, never resume opera
tions again. Tho principal reason
riven is that there Is no foreign mar
ket, upon which the projectors largely,
in faot almost entirely, depended. The
Belgium authorities closed their coun
try against horse meat on February 1,
and Germany is unfriendly to such a
produot. Hinoo tbe LI no too eatab
liMhment has buen in operation about
7000 horses have been slaughtered,
and efforts have been made in various
ways to And a market (or the meat,
but have not been successful in any
considerable degree. The plant waa
erected at a coat of many thonaands
of dollars and will, no doubt, prove a
heavy loss to the gentlemen who pot
their money into it.
FlTZSIMMOKS THB CHAM HO. The
Ttrisefight between Robert Fitiiim
nions and Fetcr Matter for the heavy
weight championship of the world look
place near El Paso, Texas, last Friday,
and resulted in a victory for Fitssim
mon in the first round, which lasted
only one minute and 35 seconds. The
purse was for (20,000 and a side bet of
110,000. FitxHimmona is now the
champion of the world, and although
in the middle-weight claaa he has
gained tho heavy-weight champion
ship, and has signified bis willingness
to defend the title against tho world.

To Protect Salmon. Scarcely an
Issue of any paper on the Lower Co
lumbia appears without an eiprcssion
of the desire for a proper aalraon law.
This paragraph from the Ilwaoo Jour
nal is a case in point: "The extraor
dinary large pack of salmon made lust
season, especially of full fish, and tbe
ready markot found for tbe fall pack,
1ms set many wild to got into tbe pack
tug business. The harvest reaped
from the Columbia last season was the
most valuable and profitable harvest
reaped in the state, and it is Only to
be Imped that this may prove so again
this season ; but some sensible, practi
cable legislation will be needed very
aouo to preveut the extermination of
the salmon, and to cause tbe restock
ing of the river with sturgeon, which
have in a few years been practically
exterminated." The question is, Wilt
the Oregon legislature pay any alteu
tiou to these warnings!
Mountain Meadow Massacre. -A
heated discussion took place oo our
etreota Wednesday between several
citixcns who oould not agree as to tne
exact date or year the Mountain Mead
ow Massacre occurred. No two could
agree, and the diacussiou spread like a
prairie fire from one to another until
the question was made a general quer
ry by people mooting on the streets
and in the business bouses. All were
wron?, however, as none claimed the
niassacro occurred later than 1860.
Later in the evening someone more
studious than the others consulted his
history wlieroin the truth was learned,
to-wit: That the Mountain Meadow
Massacre took place on Tuesday, the
13th day of September, 1857, under
the leadership of John 1), Lee, a Mor
mon, who twenty years later, in Sep
tember, waa executed for the part ho
bad tttkoo in the great Mormon slaugh
ter of men, women and ohildren, where
an entire emigrant traiu, known as the
Arkansas Company, consisting of
about 140 people, were butchered.
A Decision Monday.- Tbe case of
Kelly vs. Lamberaon occupied the
time of the district court all day Tues
day and Tuesday evening, and a part
of the forenoon Wednesday. It is a
case in equity to test the validity of a
certain conveyance to land at Houl
ton, made by Aaron Broyles to John
Frnntx, and afterwards from John
Frnntx back to Aaron Broyles and
wife. Aaron Broyles married a Mre.
Frantz years ago and at the time of
the marriage enoh of the contracting
partlea held a donation land claim,
and each had children by a former
wife or husband. Mrs. Broyles, it is
fluid, divided her claim during her life
time, between her own children, and
the home of the old couple being tho
claim of the husband, was not sold or
bequeathed to his heir, aa Mm. Kelly
is s.iid to be the only child of Broyles.
Home years elapsed and Iiroyloi be
came bondsman or surety for. some
party unknown to us, and waa about
to be compelled to make the surety
good, when, to avoid it, so the iitnry
goes, he deeded his land to another
with the undemanding Hint ut the
proper time it was to be deeded back.
But when the transfer was made back
it was mado to Broyles and wife. A
little later Broyles died, and conse
quently the widow claimed the prop
erty, and afterwards mado a win in
which it was stipulated that her
daughter, Mrs. Susio Lamberson, wag
to have the home place. Tho plain
tiff's contention is that Broyles always
Intended that his daughter, Mrs. Kelly,
should have his estate and that he was
not awaro that when tho property was
transferred back to him the deed con
tained, also, the name of his wife.
Upon thin ground it is sought to have
tho will of Mrs. Broyles set aside as
well ss the two conveyances heretofore
mentioned, in which case the property
would revert to Mrs. Kelly as the legal
heir of Aaron Broyles. An opinion in
the esse will bo handed down by Judge
Bhattuek next Monday. The state
ments herein are made only upon
street talk by persons who claim to be
familiar with tbe circumstances.
No Hum Watkr This Year. The
prospects are unfavorable to a big
"June rise" In the Columbia this year.
From all reporta there la but little
snow in any of the mountains about
the several sources of the rivei,says
the Oregonian. This Is not favorable
for fishermen at the dalles and cas
cades. In order for the wheels to be
successful. It is necessary to hsvo a
good height of water. Fishermen who
have been up the river looking over
the situation, imagine that the wheels
at the cascades and dalles will not do
any better this year than they did last,
which was a poor season for them, on
account of the low water. The traps
and selna aud nets are so numerous
during the seasou In the lower part of
the river that it is a wonder that any
salmon over get up to the cascades or
into the Clackamas. The only chance
for the fish reaching the spawning
grounda will be afforded during the
close season, which begins March 1,
and ends April 10th, If the fishermen
can bo made to keep these nets out of
tbe rivers during thia period, some
fish may get tip beyond their reach
before it ia over.
Eutkrta jkino Lbctubes. Mrs. C.
Owons, of Stockton, Cal., lectured here
laat Friday, Saturday and Sunday
evenings. On Friday evening ber ad
dress was to the boya and girls, Satur
day evening ber subject was "Charity,"
and Sunday evening "What Shall the
Harvest Be." These lectures were
very Interesting aa ia particularly evi
denced by the fact that the audience
greatly increased in eize each evening
until Sunday evening the house was
so crowded that many were compelled
to stand. In company with Mrs. Owen
waa a Miss Goes, who at different times
entertained tbe assemblage with solo
which were well rendered. At the
close of the meeting on Friday and
Saturday eveniuga Mrs. Owen sang
a plantation song with organ accom
paniment, which waa greatly enjoyed
by those present. Thia is a novel idea
of doing missionary work, but it ia no
doubt a very effective way of doing
good. The lecture on "Charity" could
not fail to inspire one with some de
gree of responsibility as to their duty
toward others. Monday the Mission
aries went to Goble whero tbey re
mained most of tho week.
Orkoon Fruit East Willis Brewn,
representing the Oregon Fruit Union,
writes from New York: "In green
fruits Oregon is coming to the front.
The Northwestern fruit will be the
fruit that people want. Everyone
wants our cherries, pears and green
prunes. Iu a market where we ship
iod thirty carloada, mostly green Ital
ian prunes, our agent says : 'Uive me
100 cars this year.' With a better
pack, prices will rule higher, I am
sure. I have seen letters from coun
try buyers, who have had this fruit,
stating they want more ; it is such a
good keeper, and I find tbat eyen
when Italians were sold for GO to 70
cents per crate through Chicago auo
lion houses, they were resold for 65
cents to $1, and in big demand all the
time. Tbe whole proposition figured
down, is this: There is money in
growing Oregon fruit if it it properly
packed and marketed. Thia can only
tie done by experiment, and where an
experiment has pitted more success
ful, keep on improving on the same
