Caught Her Inspiration
The following is taken from the Sun
day Oregonian, a.part ol an article writ
ten in commemorutive review'of Mrs.
Eckstorm's recently published bird
"Fannie HarJy Eckstorm's two
volumes, which a few weeks ago were
iilaced in the hands of the American
bird lovers, have aroused many pleasant
recollections in the minds of her Oregon
friends, stories illustrating the peculiarly
strong and kindly lies of sympathies
and human kinship that bound her to
Oregon people. Her short stay in this
state was not without a touch of romance
and pathos. A little over eight years
ago she came, a stranger to a strange
laud. She was then Miss Hardy, the
financee of the Iley. Jacob A. KckBtorm,
of Chicago, who in the spring of '03 had
accepted a call to St. Paul's church,
Oregon City. As they could not be
married before he went West, and as
circumstances maim it impossible for
him to return East for the wedding, she
made the journey to him nl me across
the continent from her Maine home, in

most happy marriage. It was surprising
how warm a place Mr. and Mrs.Eckstorm
immediately won in the regard of Ore.
gen City people. The rector and his
wife had as many friends outside of their
chinch as within. The cordial good
will as well as the respect and reverence
or tue entire community was theirs.
Ordinance Declaral Invalid.
Cfty Recorder Curry Saturday after.
noon decided adversely on the validity
of the ordinance passed by the council in
December, 1!00, granting F. S. Morris a
franchise to run passenger and freight
trolley cars on Main Btreet for 43 years.
The giotind for the decision was that
tho ordinance was read the first time at
a regular meeting of the council and
pasted at an adjourned session of the
same meeting, Tho charter provides
that an ordinance to be valid must be
r a 1 at two separate meetings of the
council, and the decision allinned the
contention that a regular and an ail
journed seshion are legally the same
meeting. The matter was brought into
the recorder's court by the arrest of
Cieoige Adams, March L'O, charged with
Violating a city ordinaiicj by running a
train of freight cirs through Main street,
t-entence was suspended pending the
prer-ciitatiou of law points on the valid

raigned for sentence next Thursday, un
less proceedings are again suspended by

clo'hes, and eloped from Clark county,
W ish., with a man, who gave hi i name
as diaries Wilson. Thatisapart of the
confession of the girl of uncertain iden

Hockett, of Condon, who, ran away
with a Russian from that place about a
year ago. One-man, who visited the

actions excited suspicion, and after
starting to leave town Monday were
placed under arrest by Chief of Police
Burns. The man was oil enough to be
the girl's father, and told her' not to
talk. He was or pretended to be very
hard of hearing. Sam R. Hockett, of
Condon, had spent the greater part of
his meanslooking for his lost daughter,
and it was believed to be her, as there
was some descriptive resemblance.
Hockett had been here a few days pre
vious, and ueteciiveB and mends iiave
been aMing him in the search. In her
confession the girl said that she had left
home because she hadn t been treated
right; that her father's name was Henry
Fletcher, and he was working on a ditch
in Giass Valley, six miles from Van
couver. She alao had a Irother work

sue had gone with this min as a means
of getting away ; that there had been no
improper relations between them. She
did not want to return .home, and said
