At 2:30o'clok last Saturday morning
John Schramn, one of the oldest and
best-known resident of Oregon City,
died at his home on Sixth street. The
death of Mr. Sehrera was a very sud

and came to this country in 1854. In 1858
toOregon City and has been a resident of
this city every since. He embarked in
business, rnnning a harness shop for
manv years. About 15 years ago he
retired from busieess, having amassed a
considerable property. He was a good
citizen and well beloved by all who knew
His wife died years ago. Three child

and Chas Schram, all of this city.
The burial of the Infant child of Mr.
and Mrs. Powell, of this city, took place
Sunday. The death of the child oc
curred in San FranciBco a week previous.
Its death was due to tbe carelessness of
an attendant of the hospital where the
child was being treated. The nurse was
giving the child a vapor bath, and was
called to answer the telephone, leaving
the child alone. When she returned
she found the lamp overturned and the
bedclothes on fire. Tbe child was pinned
to tbe bedclothes and before he could be
rescued, had smothered. Tbe funeral
was held at the Salvation Army hall at
11 o'clock and the remains were in

Saturday morning of last week at nine
o'clock, A. R. Donaldson, at the age of
77 years. Tbe deceased had been an
J. ne crime witn whicn Uarner was
charged and found guilty, was commit
ted on the fourth day of the prtsent
month. Grrdner and Indian Joe, better
Known as "Susan" bad been drinking
together and Gardner went to Susap's
nome in the evening. During their wild
orgies Gardner attempted to criminally
assault Joe's wife, Martha. In the
struggle Gardner gouged out her eye
with bis thumb. She was already blind
in one eye and his cruel act rendered
her totally so.
Gardner has a record for crime extend
ing over a period of years. He was sent
to tbe penitentiary several yeais ago for
criminal assault, and served three years
being pardoned before bis sentence ex
pired. He was again.before the court a
few years 8jjo charged with having rob
bed "Captain Jack" an old, one-legged
soldiei, who died recently. At this trial
be was released with the understanding
that he would leave these parts and re
turn no more. Gardner left for a timebut
soon came back, and was again at his
old tricks in a short time. By the time
bis present sentence has expired be will
probably kuow how to behave.
After being out all Friday night the
jury in the case of the Commonwealth
vs Robert Gardner, indicted on three
counts, brought in a verdict of guilty on
tbe first count, that of mayhem.
Judge McBrUe dismissed the jury and
then sentenced Gardner to 20 years im
prisonment in tbe state penitentiary. In
summarizing tbe case Judge McBride
said that Gardner was an old offender,
having frequently been before the court
for trial for misbehavior, and that he
had been let oil' more than once with a
liht punishment with the hope tha the
would in the future reform and live a
better life. These hopes had not been
realized, for Gardner had shown a pro
pensity to continually eet into trouble
and was hardly out of one (crape until
he was In another. Under these cir
cumstances the judges thought he should
receive tbe maxium punishment for the
crime he had been found guilty of com
mitting, and be was consequently sen
tenced to serve 20 years in the State
The jury in the case of Hartigan . vs,
the Southern Pacific Railroad Company
brought in a verdict last Friday morn
in favor of the plaintiff. Hartigan was
awarded 1,000. The case occupied con
siderable of the time of tbe court and
was bitterly contested. Hartigan was a
brakeman on the Southern Pacific Kail
road. Last February he was injured in
a wrecic on tne west side division near
Oswego. He received a compound tract'
ure of tbe bones of the right leg below
tne icnee, and as a result tbe bones were
removed. Hartigan brought suit for
115,000. He claimed that the accident
had rendered him a cripple.
The defendant attemped to prove that
the plaintiff had received no permanent
injuries. His leg, they said, had heal
ed and he was as sound as ever. Farther
mare, they claimed that Hartigan was
an old and experienced railroad man,
that he had accepted the positfon of
brakeman, knowing that the line over
which he was to run was qot in good
condition, and that under these cirum
etances he should have no damages.
After arguments by the attorneys the
case was given to the jury at ten o'clock
on Thursday night. It was three
o'clock next morning before a decision
Children s Congress
Under the supervision of Rey. J. H.
Beaven, of the Baptist church, a juve
nile congress, consistiLg of the boys and
girls of the high school department, has
been organized in this city. This con
gress bids fair to accomplish more to
wards teaching civics to tha young tola
than all the books they are apt to study
during their school life.
The congress is made up of twohduses,
the senate and house of representatives.
Each member is supposed to represent
some particular part ot tbe united
States, congressional district, if he, or
rather Bhe, be a member ol tne bouse ot
representatives, and some state if he be
a member of the senate. The boys are
the senators while the members of the
house are composed of children of the
If a girl is a representative it devolves
upon her to acquaint herself with the
needs of the particular district which
she is supposed to represent and to in
troduce sucb legislation as will bene
ficial to her district. If a boy is a sena
tor he must look after the interests of
the state he is supposed to represent,
acquaint himself with tbe interests of
the state, etc. The Courier is not in
formed as to the political make-up of
the mock congress, but presumes that
tbe boys and girls wbo compose it can
call themselves Democrats or Re
publicans just as they like. The parlia
mentary rules which govern the con
gress are in strict accoid with the rules
which govern tbe national body, ine
doings of this mock congress will be
watched with considerable interest by
the peoole of Oregon Citv and elsewhere.
The members ought to learn consider
able about the law making bodies cf the
United ibtates Government, and no
doubt they will.
Jumped on a Ten Penny Nail.
The little daughter of Mr. J. N. Pow
ell jumped on an inverted rake made of
ten penny nails, and thrust one nail en
tirely through her foot and a second one
half way through. Chamberlain's Pain
Balm was promptly applied and five
minutes later the the pain had disap
peared and no more suffering was ex
perienced. In three days the child was
wearing her shoe as usual and with ab
solutely no discomfort. Mr, Powell is a
