Bv bunchins their errors in the second
inning the home team lost last Sunday's
game. A drizzling rain set in just as
the name was called ana increased mio
a considerable shower, but the game was
plaved out notwithstanding. The leaky
roof of the grand stand afforded but poor
protection for the two or three hundred
unfortunates huddled inBide trving to
keep dry. The grouud became slippery
and good exhibition of base ball was
next to impossible.
The Monograms started tneir run get
ting in the first inaing and eucceeaed in
getting one run across the home plate
on a bit and two stolen bases by their
new short stop, Johni-on. The home
tram weni out 111 one. two three order.
In the second inning catcher Krietz loBt
his head while three men were on bases
and two men came in on a rank error.
Another hit and one more Monogram
scored In thfiir turn at the bat Oregon
City landed on' Hoyt for a few good
c.lpan hits and scored three runs. These
three were the only runs they were able
to get, however, as both tha pitcners 01
the MonotrrauM seemed to hand out
curves-aud shoots that our boys were un
able to connect with.
The Monograms scored one more run
in the sixth. The ball was slippery and
wet with mud and almost impossible tor
the pitchers to control. The game was
utterly devoid of any tensational plays.
Very few teams play gooa Dan in me
rain, however, and the game was really
as gojd an exniDitiou 01 tne national
sport as could be expected.

ACTIVITY !N REAL ESTATE.
Damascus, Ore., May 12th, 1903
Godfried Boeee, a farmer, 63 years of
age, committed BUicide here Sunday
night by banging himself to a rider
It is generally supposed that the
cause of his rash act was brought about
by family troubles, as he did not get
along well with his wife and son and
from time to time had eng ged in
quarrels and disputes w ith them. On
Sunday he and his son, Godfied, Jr.,
had a settlement resulting from the
sale of some hogs the son had sold in
the Portland market. A new carriage
of Mr. Boese'B had been toin to pieceB
by a team of iunaway horses and other
matters had come about which caused
Sunday evening about eight o'clock he
stole Irom i he house and a while later
was niiseed by his wife who went in
search of him. Failing to liud him she
awakei.ed her son and together they
searched for the missing man. After a
time they concluded it would be best to
call in (lie neighbors to assist them in
their search. It was about ten a'clock
when the pearching party, headed by
the son, left the house. The party was
composed of twelve men. Three hours
later while some distance from the
house one of the dogs that was with
them ran out from a ciump of buBhes
wagging his tail and evincing great ex
citement. One of the party followed
the dotr. back into the clumu and found
the body of Mr. Boeee with a rope around
bis neck, the other end of the rope tied
to a fence rider, cold in death. The
fence lider was so low that the feet of
the dead man rested on the ground
and even his knees t niched. He bad
evidently leaned forward and been slow
choked to death.
Just ontside of the fence was a bottl
which Mrs. Koese said they had kept in
the house filled with alcohol which they
used for medicial purposes. The bottle
contained, so Mrs. Boeee stated, almost
a quart of the "medicine," and was
diluted slighth with water. When lound
it was nearly empty, showing that the
suiside had drank emugh of the stuff to
have killed him even if be had not seen
fit to bane himself.
The body was cut powu after all of the
party viewed it, an improvieedjitter was
made of two fence rails and it was placed
on the litter and carried to the bouse
Coroner. R. L. Holman, was promptly
notified and he arrived on the scene at
ten o'clock Monday morning
A coroner's urv was summoned and
an inquest held. Only one verdict was
possible, "that deceased came to nis
death by hanging b mself with a rope
with suicidal latent, while under tne in
fluence of intoxicating nauor."
Mr. Boesebad ned iu tnecummunity
for many years. He bad grown well off
In this world s goods and at the time of
bis demise was possessed ot several nun
dred acres of fine land. Besides the land
he was possessed of cash securities
amounting to Quite a little. He was of
German extraction and was an industri
ous farmer, and well liked by all of his
friends. Only the widow and son sur
Funeral services were conducted from

at ten o'clock, and were attended by

Damascus, Oregon, May 12.
There is great activity in real estate
in this section of the county, and half
a dozen real estate buyerB have been
in here this week looking for desirable
tannine lands. Monday a party of Kan
sans, headed bv a Portland real estate
firm, was here and priced a number of
farms. While the geutiemen nave noi
yet invested they are well pleased with
the outlook here and it is quite proba
ble that they will ultimately Invest.
There ate many farms in this section for
sale, the owners of which indeed seem
anxious to sell. We ran serosa one of
these parties the other day. "I wish
you would Bend me a buyer for my
farm," be rernarKeu, "i warn to sen
out." "How much do you want for
your place ?"we asked as a feeler. "Four
thousand dollai s," was the reply. "How
many acres have you?" "Forty acres."
We intimated that a hundred dollars
an acre seemed a pretty stiff price for
land in that section, but upon Investiga
tion found that plenty of land near the
new eltctric road was selling tor even
greater prices than- that and that few
farms could be bad for less,
The new road is passing through some
mighty flee country and the valuation
of land is being increased rapidly. The
village of Borings, which has recently
been made a Dost office, it is believed
will grow rapidly and many think will
be quite a town in a little while.
All around Damascus are as fine farms
as can be found anywhere in Clacka
mas county and the people realize what
tbeir truth worth is.

T.ie subiect of this sketch, is that
of George L. Story, one of Oregon City
nrominent republican lawyers.
Mr. Story has been appointen by
Mavor Dimick as city Attorney, the
vacancy left, by the resignation of Mr
Dresser. That he will make a good at
tomey for the city there is no question
He was born In Salem, Oregon some
forty vears ago. bis parents having em
grated to Oregon some ten years pre
vious, coming as many otuer emigraum
did in wagon trains across the plains.
He attended the common set 0 1 and
received a fair education after which he
was a student of the State University.
Removing to Oregon City some twelve
years ago be studied law in the office of
Judge Gordon E. Hayes and was later
a imitted to the bar.
Mr. Story has never been a candidate
for office before the people, and while a
Republican he is yet conservative in his
views. At the present time be bad

and a good citizen and will look after the

Whereas, as it 1100 teased the Divine
Master of the universe to remove from

Brown, we ihe members of Harding

1 . That since the call to rest from hU
labors on earth, is from our supreme
Master, we bow in bumble submission
to his will, ever rem mbering "Tby
will 1m done." not ours.
2. That this Grange has lost a good
and faithful member, whose name ts on

a loving husband and father, and the
communiny a good citizen and neighbor;
whose hand was ever ready to relieve the
sick and needy. To the family we ex
tend our heartfe t svmpatny.
3. Be it further resolved that a copy
of these resolutions be sent to Ihe
bereaved family, aUo to eich of the
