: Clackamas Fuanchisk .The county
court has to disposed tit I he pet il ion i.f !
the Clarkson & Mclrvin Boom Company
for a franchise on the Clackuums river.
Long petitions for and reiuniiNtrances
sgHiust were prvsunted. .r. C'rot-s was
the chiof reuiniiMi rant, and he argued at
length that it was against public policy
to tie up such a stream as theClackamas
with an exclusive franchise of the cha
racter, and that it was particularly un
just and damaging to his lumbering in
terests on the liver, inasmuch as it
would prevent him from running his
logs on the river and compel him to pay
toil to the corporation having the
franchises. The petitioners argued
that the improvement contemplated
would have the elfoct of improving the
market for a'l trie timber of the Clacka
mas basin, and that the company could
not afford to make the iinprovments
without the right to collect toll from
the business that should profit by its
investment. The court granted the
petition, after reducing the term from
25 to 10 years and reserving for Mr.
Cross the right to run bis cwn logs on
(lie river by paving 10 cents per 1000
feet for the general benefits to be
derived from the company's improve
ments. The river was also divided into
three Hiretclivs lor toll purposes, and
the toll was tlxed at (I'.t ami NJ cents
and 11 per 10IK) feet f-r driving the
timber anil rafting il nt die mouth t
the stream, The boom company is to
give a bond in iho sntii of $10,000 that
it will keep and preform all its agree
ments. Mr. (Won had 7lU niuucs on

court, which he says, represent the

on each side oi the riv.-r for a stretch
of 12 miles, and nearly all of the properly

Poisoned. Tho family of John Fleil
man, who resides two milex east of
Damasca8, were poisoned on Monday
Sunday evening M'. Heilman, as is his
custom, drew a barrel of water from a
sprint; to tho house for family use.
Monday morning he rose early, took a
drink of water and went to the barn to
do his chores. An attack of nausea
soon emptied his HtooiHch. mid I tin r vns
followed by severe cramps that com
pelled In m to give up the work he hail
promised to do that day lor a neighbor.
Mrs. Heilman took water from the
barrel to cook breakfast, and during the
preparation of the meal a 22 months-old
boy that was toddlins abont asked for
and received apieceof a pancake freshly
baked, which he ate. .Soon afterward
he was seized with vomiting and severe
paini, as Ins lather iiau oeen a snon
lime before. At breakfast the father
diank only a cup of colFae, after which
he seemed to feel slightly better. The
mother also sipped a little coffee and
partook of nothing else.. The four
other children ate their meal as usu ;l,
and soon afterward they manifested the
same symptoms their father and little
brother had shown. Before madical
assistance could be summoned the boy
died. Theothers will probably get well .
The family cannot think who would be
guilty of putting poison in the water.
