There has been strikes and rumors of
strikes among some of the employes of
the mills and factories during the past
week. Last Saturday about 25 girls
employed in the spooling and spinning
departments of the woolen mills walked
cut because the restrictions were such
that tliey could not Snake their former
wages by piece-work. This matter was
amicably adjusted, and they returned
to work after an hour or two of lay-off.
More or less dissatisfaction had been ex
pressed by employes in other depart
ments. On Tuesday the management
of the woolen mills held a conference
with a number of the employes, and
made a general, satisfactory aavance in
wages to the employes. On Monday af
ternoon seven men in the wood room at
the Crown paper mills walked out, be
cause they were not granted an increase

0. W, Gauong has a record-breaker in
the matter of a thorougbred Jersey
cow, that he recently purchased from
Hon. William Galloway. The cow has
a pedigree dating away hjick of the time
when the late J. W. Nesmith imported
the mother stock from the East into Or
egon. Last week Mr. Ganong fed the
cow on grass and a small allowance of
oil cake each day. The milk from this
was made into butter and an accurate
account kept of each separate churning.
At the end of the week the result was 15
pounds and one ounce of butter. It is a
noteworthy fact that it costs no more to
feed a cow like this than one of the
common herd, thut would prxluce only
two pounds a week.
Saturday afternoon the-county offi
cial) received a notification from the in
sane asylum that Stephen A. Lane, a
patient, had escaped from custody, and
requested that he be arrested, if he
came this way to prevent his escape.
While Deputy Sheriff Jack was eating
supper at Mrs. Samson's boarding house,
Lane came in and engaged lodgings for
the night. He was taken to the city
jail for safe keeping. In the morning
Jailer Nehren called Lane for breakfast,
but could not get him up. Later,
Deputy Jack and Nehren went to the
cell, and upon pulling down the covers
found Lane sawing away at the arteries
in one wrist with a skinning knife.
However, but slight injuries had been
afllicted, and Lane was taken back to
the asylum by an attendant on the Sun
day morning train. Lane evidently in
tended to end his mortal career, as he
had written the following on a piece of
hrown waste paper: "Please have my
body embalmned and sent (o John By
ant, Bodes, Illinois, See Isaac G, Da
vidson, Portland, Ore. Farewell to this
world of wickedness and man's perfidy.
Stophen A. Lane." Sheriff Oooke
searched the prisonrer on the night
previous, but found no knife on his per
son, Lane works in the butchering de
partment at the asylum, and evidently
bid the knife in his bootleg.
