Killed in the Crown Mill.
Roy Sunderland, a laborer in the
Crown Paper Mill, met an untinely
death last Friday noon. Sunderland
was engaged in working about the ma
chinery of the wood room and engaged
in hxing a machine, when an inexperi
enced hand turned tne belt on, starting
the maci'.inery in mot on and Sunder
land was drawn into the machine, his
body being cut almost to p eces. He
died within a few hours.
A coroner's idquest was held Saturday
and the evidence of many witnesses
was taken. Almost all of Saturday was
consumed in taking the evidence. The
following ve diet was returned by the
coroner's jury: "We, the jury, find
that Hoy Sunderland, was caught
in the machinery of said company while
the machinery jvas set in motion by an
inexperieneedywand. We further find
deceased was not guilty of contributory
negligence in bringing about his death.
We further find that the machinery and
place where the death occurred is
dangerous and not properly equipped,
and recommend that the same be pro
vided with safeguards and better facili
ties for adjusting and operating tbe same
so tnat the lives of employes be not en
dangered. We further recommend that
the Crown Paper Mill Company see that
oroper discipline is brought about in
the wootfroom where Sunderland met
his death. -

land was taken to Portland and from
there conveyed to Sneridan, where his

the department is to cut out instead of
establishing postoffices on rural routes,

to endeavor to make it the most care

An Assault at Canby.
On Saturday night, the 17th inst..
there was a mixup at Canby, of which
no report has yet been published. It
seems that a young man named Wilson,
who now has charge of the depot at
Canby, had gone to church and was
walking home with tbe daughter of a
bridge carpenter (name unknown),
when tbe carpenter came noon the two
young people and assaulted Wilson. It
is claimed that he Btruck Wilson a blow
in the face, which knocked him down
and rendered him unconscious,'' and
then waited for the lad to regain con
sciousness and kicked him In the face
time and again until Wilson was in a
very bad plight. Wilson has only been
agent at Canby for a few months, but
has won the esteem of almost every one
with whom he has come in contact. He
is a mere boy, being only about 20 years
of age and of rather light build. His
acquaintance with the girl had nothing
at all wrong about it, and his going
home with her was no more of a crimi
nal act than thousands of other boys
commit every Sunday night. The
bridge carpenter is big, burly fellow,
nearly twice as large as Wilson, and his
assault was entirely unprovoked .
'Of course the carpenter was arrested
and taken before the police judge of
Canby, where a fine of $20 was imposed
upon him. ir the true facts in the case
have been told a sentence of 20 years
in the state prison would be light pun
ishment. The station agent has the
sympathy of the entire community about
Canby, and the Courier only regrets
that it is not in possession of the name
of his assailant. Both men are in the
employ of the S. P. Ry. Company, and
if that company does justice to itself and
community it will quiokly get rid of tLe
services of such a man. Since writing
the above we have been informed that
instead of the girl being the bridge car
penter's daughter, that she waB only his

As a play, none of the native make
has been more forcefully dramatic, or
has more deftly combined the elements
which appeal to the emotions than this
story of ante-bellum times, and which
undoubtedly largely contributed to the
emancipation of tbe oppressed race. In
the South, many are they who have
seen the darkies learning to read the
Book by the light of the pine knot, for
no book of the earlier days has awakened
a thirst for book lore as has the Bible,
and acted as a divine stepping-stone
In every hamlet and city of America
"Uncle Tom's Cabin" Is the single play
millions of Americans have seen, for the
gifted authoress penned her story with
such vividness and pathos that the read
ing of it was not sufficient unto those
whose sympathies became interwoven
with its characters. But notwithstand
ing its frequent presentations, but few
have seen it played with any pretension
to proper stage effect. It is a bold and
enterprising managerial stroke that
combines for the interpretation of this
famous old play a cast that includes Ed
Espey, the great aged darkey delineator
as "Uncle Tom." Edwin Orth as Le
gree, Geo. J. Sousa as Phineas 1-letcher,
Harry C. Todd as Marka No. 1, a part
he has played 2000 times ; Fred Wiretta 1
as Marks No. 2, Chas. Mack as George
Harris. Win, Worden as St. Clair, Zelda
Marston as Eliza, Florence Grant aa
Ophelia, a role she made famous; Elbe
DeRemer as Mrs. St. Clair, Edna Clare,
the great black-face impersonator as Too
6y No. 1 and Mabel Grant as Topsy No. 2.
Little Florence, the most famous and
best liked Eva on tbe stage, will be seen
in tbe role of the angelic child. Every
trick of realism possible, with improved
up-to-date stage methods, will be em
ployed. There will be -bloodhounds,
horses, donkevs, ponies, darkies, Eva's
carriage drawn by pretty Shetlands, the
old ox-cart and cotton wagon, with its
weary old horses and dilapidated har
ness; all the life and movement attend
ant upon tbe arrival of a Mississippi .
side-wheeler ; the semi-barbaric pastime
of cotton-field and levee, and the actual
realistic slave mart and whipping post.
There will be over fifty people on the
stage, and the old-folk-lore Bongs of the
South will be sung with up-to-date
The final transformation scene, depict
ing the evolution of the black man from
barbarism through alaveiy to civiliza
tion, by the right of freedom, and me
death scene of Eva and her transition to
Heaven, will alone involve no less than
twenty-two changes of scenery. The
street parade given by the Stetson Com
pany at noon has never been equalled in
novelty and attractiveness. Whether
"Uncle Tom's Cabin" mierepreseuted
the good peoph below Mason and Dixon
line or not, the sumptuous manner in
which Manager Washbuin has mounted
tbe play 1b said to rivet the attention
everywhere. This great production will
be at tbe Sbively Opera House on Satur
day, Jan. 81st. Matinee Saturday after
noon. WHY THEY SUCCEED.
