A Warm Game
Oregon City and Monograms
, Played I Fast Ball.
Last Sunday's Game the Best of the
The most exciting game of baseball
that lias yet been played on the local
diamond during the present season was
'pulled off" last Sunday afternoon.
The opposing teams were Oregon City
anu the celebrated Monogram team of
Portland. The home team had been
strengthened by three of Schiller's best
players, and when the two teams met in
battle array there was very little differ
ent in their respective steugth. Letto,
the big pitcher for Oregon City, was at
his best, and the way he shot curves and
twisters over the home plate was a
puzzle lo the .visitors. Had it not been
tor an error made by Krietz in thej
second inning, not a run would have
been made by the visitors. In this
inning there were two men out, two
more were on first and third base
respectively, and two strikeB had been
called on the third man up The next
ball was a strike and should have been
taken care of by Erieiz, but he let it so
by and the man on third scored. The
next man up made a hit and the man
on third went home making two runs in
the second inning for the Monograms
when no runs at all should have been
scored. From that time on until the
nintu. it was a pitchers' bat' le. Really,
from the second inuing Oregon City had
the best of it She made more hits off
the Monogram pitcher than were made
off Lettow and time and time again
could have won the game could a -hit
only have been secured at the right
time. On three different occasion Ore
gon City filled the bases but could not
score. , Neither team made a
run from the second uutil the ninth
inning. ' In the ninth Monograms went
out iu one. two three order. The pitch
er for the Monograms got ex ited and
allowed two Oregon City batters to walk.
A bhort hit by another allowed her to
fill the bases. A wild throw and Califf
on third came home. Another man was
allowed to walaand it began to look
like Oregon City ought to at leust tie the
score, but thty couldn't. Nobody could
fait the ball at the opportune time and
the home team went down to defeat bv a
score of 2 to 1, in one of the tient games
that has been played at Canemah park
this season. The attendance was fairly
good, there being ebjut 250 peopl. pre
sent A light rain fell through: about
half of the game which was not conducive
to good ball playing.
The past week has been very favorable
for vrgetatlon, and but very little hay

Oregon City Celebrates the
A Big Crowd Witnesses A Bum Ceiebra.
LaBt Saturday vas the Fourth of Joly.
This may nut be news to a great number
of people in Oregon City and elsewhere
in these United States, but it is a fact all
the same, but facts are not always news
and news is not always facts. Oregon
City celebrated the Fonrth in a man
ner. When the denizens of Oregon City
woke up last Saturday morning it was
the patter of raindrops beating down on
the roofa overhead. They looked out
and saw a murky atmosphere. Little
rivulets of water were zigzagging down
the Btreets on the way to the peaceful
Willamette. ,Nearly everybody hoped
that ihd rain would Boon be over and
that they would be allowed to celebrate
as liieir ivste hid conscience ruikiht die
tote. But. the rain wasn't roon over.
As tbe morning Hdvanced the rain grew
iu pruportious until the time billed for
thy parade arrived when a regular "Ore
gon miBt " about half an inch of water
an hcur was drifting down upon those
unfortunate enough not to have an um
brella, l he parade was abandoued. In
fact, pretty nearly everything elee wax
abandoned, and it would have been bet
ter if ever) ihiug that wasn't had been
abandoned until a more propithuB oc
casion. The crowd wab all that could
have been expected. Theie must have
been from 1500 to 2000 from tbe outside
in town and all of them must have en
joved themselves thoroughly in trying to
keeep drv . That was about all they had
todo. Hon. B. F Eddy, of Tillamook,
was present and was supposed to address
the crowd. But he didn't. Just why
he didn't it would be hard to tell. It
certainly wasn't Mr. Eddy's fault, for he
vv&b willing enough, but the committee
made no arrangements to have him
speak. Of course, outdoor sneaking
was out of the question but thsre are
plenty of halls iu Oregon City and one
could have been procured at very little
cost, and if the committee had spent all
its money, at least one patriotic Oregon
City citizen offered to rent a hall and
pay for it himself. Mr. Eddy came
all the way from Tillamook and came in
the rain and he should have been al
lowed to speak. ,
In the afternoon a series of races had
been advertised. There were boat races.
swimming races, foot races,bicycle races,
fat tnen'B races, etc., etc , but the
weatnei aa not lustily come of them be
ing ruu. The street was about three
inches deep in water and mud. There was
a hoee race, one or two fbotTaceSiand a
lew other races of a similar character,
and there was a boat race on the river.
The river was about the drvest place
anywhere aud the rain didn't interfere
with the ' boat or swimming races. , A
ball game was advertised for the after
noon. The gume was called oS because
of tbe inclement weather. In tbe eve
ning it was proposed to paint tbe town
red with rockets, roman candles and
other Fourth of July .fireworks, but the
nreworks got sidetracked somewhere
and a few dozen rockets that had in
some way got into the town was the onlv
fireworks display seen.
J. he fireworks part of the program was
perhaps the flattest failure of all. Of
the many citizens who contributed to
the celebration there are quite a few
who feel like they had been buncoed,
but of course the weather man was re
sponsible for it and they can't kick. Two
events of the day were entirely success
ful. One was the dance at Canemah
Park and the other the dance at the ar
mory, given by tbe Oregon City band.
Elsewhere the celebration was per
haps carried on with a little more sac
censtban in Oregon City. At Canb
about a thousand ptoole gathered and
listened to a speech by Judge Gordon
Hayes, of this city. Most of the
program there was carried on under
shelter, lhe exceeding; dampness was
not allowed to interfere with the ball
game at Can try. The rival teams were
Canby's local nine and the High school
team of thisity. The High school
team was defeated by r score of to 6 .
Mayor Dimick went to Damascus to de
liver an oration but the rain interfered
and the speech was called off.' Howard
lirewnell went to Bandy and reports
good crowd and a big celebration. At
Damascus tbe Modern woodmen will
have a celebration sometime next
month. ' ' '
Wedneeday night the remainder of the
fireworks left over from tbe Fourth of
July celebration were touched off. A
big crowd congregated on tbe west bank
of the river and watched the display,
which was quite wonderful while it last,
ed. In fact, we heard one party aay
that tbe fireworks were the best he bad
ever ee in Oregon City, but as he was
a newcomer and bad only arrived in
town two hoars previous, his opinion
didn't count. , Tbe Oregon City band
rendered a few 'selections to a. delighted
audieDee and the Fourth of , July cele
bration wa alt off until the good year of
our Lord, 1904. ,

Dished Out to Young Nelson by
Do Not Approve of Boiling People After
They Are Dead.
The following letter has been received
by tbe Courier from Liberal anent an
article publi shed in laat week 'e Courier
concerning Fred Nelson and bones found
buried at Liberal. ' Judging by the tone
oi the letter the people of Liberal are
somewhat incensed and premise to make
it warm for Fred should he show up.
Mr. Editor : I beg leve to reply to an
article which appeared in last week's
Courier, as there were some mistakes in
said art.cle, which ought to be correct
ed. The writer said that M'red Nelson
brought some human bones to Liberal
on Monday, which, of course left the
impression on the minds of the readers
that it was on Monday of last week. That
is a mistake as Fred boiled the bones,
flesh and all on Sunday evening. May
24, and finished his dastardly task on
the following morning. And it was not
a rancher of Liberal who discovered the
bones which were in a box on top of a
barn, but it was a lady, of Yaqutna, Or
She climbed to the top of the barn and
took on" look and then persuaded others
to follow. Her tUriusity being thoroughly
amused bv this time she then proceeded
to the secne of the cooking, for which he
had used a large iron kettle. There she
found the flesh which had been scraped
off the bones of some pk mother's son,
and scattered about ou -the ground us
though it was the refute parts of some
old rancher's hug, on hog killing day.
Next she found tbe hand and arm in a
five. gallon oil can. This had neither
been been boiled, lyked nor fried.
How careless of you, Fred! It tnuhthave
spoiled, but we know it did nut for we
saw it three weeks later, and it wa all
right. What ne should like to know,
now. is"where did Frel g-t that body?"
Or part of one. Weranciiers a e rather
dense, and it seems hard for us to un
derstand at once, and without consider
able proof that he procured it in Port
land. Why did he seem worn out an I
dead for sleep? And why did he have
that huge gun strapped about his waist
Why! We Liberal ranchers always
held him in higheBt esteem before be
took up the occupation ol boiling peo
ple.aua it looked as though he was ex
pecting a row or ghosts.
Well, we have decided to take a home
study course in medicine. We have
read three chapters in Ayer's almanac,
two in Jayne an I our next lesson will
study Lvdia Pinkham's advertisements
in the Ladies Home J ou nat.
We understand the coroner told Fred
it was nobody's business about those
bones, so wben we finish our next les
son , guess we will build a few log heaps
in case some of us should lose through
death father, brother.' son or some
other member of our family for some
one might get them in the kettle before
we could get them to the crematory.
Therefore, we want our bodies burned
on our own log heap. We shall be glad
to see you, Freddie, when you find time
to come out again. The tar, feathers
and (three cornered rail have already
Awaiting your arrival, we are

The commencement exercises of the
Cliffside school, district No. 45, were
held in Johnson's hall, in the presence
of a large number of relatives and friends
of the pupils. While each pupil acquit
ted himself in a creditable manner, praise
is due to Rosa and Carolina Voeretti,
Zell Gibbons, Nellie Bacon, Francis
Phelps, Gertie Bailey and tbe Messrs,
Elmer Phelps, Frank Bacon, Fred Gib.
bona aad George Calvin. Tbe play en
titled "Grandpa" was rendered with
much skill by Wesley Bacon, Frank
McGugin, Jessie Gibbons and Mamie
Bailey. After tbe exercises a basket so
cial was held, netting $75.
The surplus, which far surpassed ex
pectations, is to be extended for purchas
ing new seats for the school-house. A
vote of thank was tendered Miss Ella
Miller for eareful training and hard la
bor. Miss Miller thanked her many
friends for their kind assistance, ana
departed tbe following day for her home
in Woodbnrn. ,
lr. Howard Assign. . -
Mrs. George T. Howard, wife of the
missing Red Front merchant, assigned
for the benefit of tbe creditors of the es
tate last Saturday. Judge Thomas F.
Ryan is named ae the assignee. The In
voice ol the property baa not been com.
teted but will probably be this week. It
Is estimated that the pioperty will in
voke in the neighborhood of $4000 and
that the liabilities of the estate will be
at least two and a, half times tnat
amount. Tbe property if sold under the
bamaner will probably not bring more
than two-thirds ai its invoice value and
it is not likely that the creditors will re
ceive more than 30 per cent of the
amount due them. ' The whereabouts of
Howard still remaio a mystery. His
wife claims that he is working in Ta
coma, bat the probability is that be is
in British Columbia.
Sheriff Shaver refuses to surrender to
Judge T. F. Ryan as assignee the papers
stock and fixtures of Howard. His re
fusal is based on the advice of C. D. &
D. O. Latourette and attorney Saben, of
Portland. Tbey claim that the assign
ment did not dissolve the attachment of
Michael and Portland creditors. Judge
Ryan served written notice on tbe sheriff
that he would be belt personally re
sponsible for all losaesand depreciations
in value occasioned by delay in dispos
ing of tbe goods . In order to mae the
sheriff safe tbe plaintiff's attorneys filed
bond in tbe sum of $8,000.

have their favorities win, and it was
not until the vote was counted Wednes
