ten days or two weeks, the insurance
war has been on in dead earnest, In Ore
gon Clly anil rate have been slushed
right and left, Inoiieiiistaiii'ethu rate was
cut TllD Kpnr cent, but tho usual rate of
discount wits fifty per cent. The cut rutea
wus Inaugurated by the cciul agent of
tho I'luKiilx and Home Insnrancu Com
panies, and the ugvnU of the othur com
panies wore instructed lo meet the re
ductions In a great measure. Tim re
mit Is insurance agents are very busy
cancelling and renewing policies, ar
ranging rebate! and writing new insnr
ancu. It Is nut ex hh ted that the pres
ent rate will continue long, and the cut
rate slashing ia likely to end any day.
Although rates will prohahly never be
as high again as they have been in tho
past. T. F. Ityun asserts that Insur
ance rates have always been about M
ar cent too high in Oregon City,
and Ihe Kntkhi'hisk has repeutedly men
tioned the fact that our people were im
juslly taxed iu this resH-ct, The major
ity of the agents have tailored dili
gently to hold their own amidst the cut
ting of rules thut has been going on. The
school board prolited by the competition
and prevailing low rates, and alter can

Ing of about $HX), alter paying forshort

iu the companies represented in the
agencies of C, II. Pye and F, K. Don
aldsou. The county court also received
a rebate on fheir insurance, on the
court hoiixe and bridge which re
sulted in a foiihidcruhlo euving to tho
Vai.i'aiii.k Mabosic Kkki'hakch. Mrs.
Addie Minikins, wife of Major Frank K.
Ilodkins, of Salem, has in her poM-ssion
two family heirlooms of much intrinsic
value, but of lar greater value by reason
of their associations. One is a Masonic
jewel, consisting of the compass, quad
rant and letter ti, maiks of solid gold and
nearly four inches high , and the quad
rant base being ul)ut the same length.
The reverse side of this bar is inscribed :
'i'resented by the (irund Lodge of Ore
Terr'y to Worshipful Mastert'ol. IVrry
man Jennings, her flist Grand Master,
I8.V1, June 24th, UH.'." On thearmsof
the compass ia also inscribed : "This
testimonial for fuithfiil service." Ihiring
his life Colonel Jennings valued this gift
very highly, and took great cure of it,
ami his wife as well as other members of
the laniily have corresjionding reverence
foi it now. Tho other souvenir ia a
Masouiu keystone, tho eiuhlen of the
Koval Arch Masons. On one side is
engraved a spreading oak tree, sur
rounded by the circle containing the
initials II. T. W. S. S. T. K. S. Tho
other side eonUiins the inscription:
"Multnomah It. A. Chapter No. 1, Salem
Oregon, 1K57, M. Jennings." Colonel
Jennings wua the first receiver of the
land oll'ice at Oregon City, and died on
his ranch near the Clackamas river about
three yeura ago. Portland Suu.
Ci.KAMNU .Main Sihkkt. At the last
meeting of tlio city council John Tuber
was awarded the contract of sweeping
and carting off the dirt on Main street
for ono month at the rate of (1. 50 per
day, under the direction of the street
commissioner. About one month ago
Mr. Tulier, who hud considerable ex
perience in the street cleaning depart
ments of Spokano ' and I'endleton,
arrived here and undertook the job of
keeping Main street clean receiving for
his pay donations from the people doing
business along the street. Ho succeeded
so well that the council committee on
streets and public proierty engaged him
to do the work under the direction of
Ihe street conimissioner. The result is
Main street now bus a preseutuble ap
pearance, and Mr. Taber will probably
hold down l he job for some time to come.
1 Iu does Ihe work with a tttieet broom,
and hauls tlie dirt away with a horse
And cart. The citv council have at last
olved the problem of keeping the streets
clean, and wisely took advantago of
the situation offered.
Wantkd for Fokokky, C. F. Howard
of Mulino, is wanted in Portland on a
charge of forgery. He recently wont to
Portland and purchased a cigar stand
of one Chandler, giving in payment for
the sumo a note with apparent good
security. After Howard bad conducted
the business for awhile, youngChandler's
father came to the conclusion that the
note wua not exactly all right, and al
leges thut Howard forged some bogus
mimes to the document. A warrant
was sworn out charging Howard with
forgery, and on Tuesday the elder
Chandler and Deputy Shorlir D. li.
Shepard went to Mulino but were
unable to locate Howard. Shepard
was out tho night before, but claims
that Howard was secreted by some of
his friends. Howard baa always borne
a good reputation, and when his side of
the story is given, it may put a different
aspect on the affair. '
Cioi.u IN Ci.ai-kamas. It it is already
one of the possibilities that a rich gold
mino ia in process of development in
Clackamas county. The Consolidated
Red Kock Mining Company.ol Portland,
Captuin George J. Ainsworth, president,
and C. M. Whito secretary, have had a
crew of men ut work on tho ledgo for the
past ten days under ihurge of T. If.
White. The ledge Is said to he seventy
five feet In width and assays $8 per ton
with truces of silver, and as there are
thoiisunils of tons of rock in sight, the
owners think that they have a veritable
bonan.a. However, it Is a well known
fact among wining men that these extra
ordinary wide quart)! ledges do not prove
profitable, but it is hoped this one will
prove an exception to the rule. The sur
roundings are favorable for the economi
cal working of the ledge with an ex
cellent water power and a mill site where
tho pay ris k can be sent down in a chute
from the ledge to the mills. Tho men
are now engaged in bulling a road to the
mines, which are located in the extreme
southern part of Ihe county in the moun
tains, and aie eight miles from the near
est wagon road and thirty-three miles
from Mount AiikoI. It is the announced
intention of the company to put in a
fifty or sixty stamp mill. About twenty
other claims have been located in that
section since the discovery and location
of the lted Hock lode last December.

Company No. 3, sent in a communica
tion to 1 1 io city council at Ihe last meet
ing, asking thut the city uiovide a new
place for the Company's headquarters,
as the lease on the building which they
now occupy, will soon expire. Rome of
councilmen favored the erection of an
engine house on the public square op
posite E. H. ('barman's residence, but
a number of tho firemen clti'm thut this
location would make a heavy pull lo
draw the cart to tho seat of tires break
ing out in the western districts of the
city, as the mi grade is very sleep. The
present location on Alonroe street is a
convenient one, but the street is in bad
condition for making a got d start. The
firemen much prefer to have an engine
house located well up on Seventh street,
whew they can make a good start when
a fire alarm is turned in. One party of
fers to erect a suitable building on Sev
enth street and lease a portion of it to
the city for the use of the Company. The
committee on fire and water have the
matter under consideration, and will
recommend some plan at the next reg
ulai meeting of the city council.

the Portland lawyer, convicted of nego
tiating a note for Ezra C. Creesy, of
Milwaukee, in this county, was sentenced
to one year in Ihe penitentiary by Judge
Stephens last Saturday. Thompson
knew at the time he sold the note thai
Cressy had been incapable of managing
his own business, and was in charge oi
a guardian. Thompson has given notice
of his intention toapieal to the supreme
court, and, in v ew of this, his commit
ment to the penetentiary was ordered by
the court withheld until July 18th, in
order to givo him an opportunity to ob
tain hia release, pending the decision of
the higher court, on bonds, which Judge
Stephens fixed at 12500.
