: Five Indians were burned alive at the
agency on the Umatilla reservation earlv
Sunday morning. They were prisoner in
the agency jail, which was evidently set
afire by the prisoner themselves. Be
fore the fir was discovered the jail had
become a blazing mass ' and the Indians
were probably dead, at no sounds were
heard from them. The door of the iail
wae never unlocked and after the fir. hxri
burned low the charred bodies of the five
were found within the ruine. The ver
dict of the coroner' iurv. triven after a
long investigation, is to the effect that the
fire was started by the prisoner them
selve and that they were not rescued
owing to the poor system in connection
with the keeping of the jail.

Latt week the board nf
the company formed some time aco to mk
test in this valley for areteian water, met
at Alicel. As is well known a subscrip
tion of about four 'thousand dollars wtt
had. This money hat all been used. The
hole is about 865 feet down. It ia auH
too that at several pointsduring the driving
or tne pipe-wnicn by the way is now at a
depth nf flfiS feet a flow of watar u.i
found, on of which was tufficient to bring

but seemingly lacked aufficient force to
com out. Th hoi Is now at a vry
promising point in thi that it i.
in a tratum of clay of a vry hard forma

oon at one through that water may be
had. It will be remembered th first
intention was to make a hole at laaat 1 0OO
feet and a contrtct to thi effect waa
mad with Mr Hunt on thi City. For
reason which could not be overcome at
that time the hole could be made no deeper.
However, this earn man Hunt will mva
a contract that he will drive the pipe to
th 1000 limit for $3.00 per foot in cash
or he will make it for the pipe already in
the hole. That is h will take th hoi for
his pay. If he should succeed in pulling
it up he will get good pay but the company
fear it cannot be drawn and want to make
contract with the'' gentleman whereby
he take the pipe for pay.. If he faile to
draw the pip he receive no pay what-
ever. Now the point it eimolv thi. If

Alfalfa leaves are very excellent and

a good dust bath with some well slacked
