purpose of creating a coromisaionera

governor. This court will have charge
of and do au businesa pertaining to
county affairs, also county printing. The

him to aign the bill.

Bred from boucea hearing white flags on
the Ame'iran ontpots, CoLne.1 Hmiih,
with companies L. I) and K, of the Cali
fornia volunteers, proceeded to clean out
the enemy along hi front. The reUla
opposed him from the brush, and seveial
skirmishes occurred, during which nine)
of the Californlans were slightly wound
ed before the rebels were driven oat.
The work proceeded today in a syste
matic manner, the gunboats shelling
liie villagea and working the rapid fire
guns yery effectively on the jungle.
The entire California regiment, with
the exception of two companies, the
Washington regiment, two cruranles of
the Idaho regiment and a bafery of the
Sixth artillery were engaged. The
rebela were driven towards Lake Gains,
de fiaro. The re Ms held their fire, ap
parently being atiort of ammunition,
but Ibey fought desperately.
The American outposts m thia direc
tion are now fully J2 miles out. All it
quiet along the rest of the line with the
exception that an occasional exchange
of shots between sharpshooters breaks
the monotony of tbe day.

INCEST HELD.
The Coasting Party Partly Responsible
for Ills Death.
George Hoehn, a veteran of the civil
war, died early Monday morning at the
home of his daughter Mrs. Catharine
Sumner, of this city, at the age ol 81
years and 2 months. Tbe old gentle
man was thrown violently to the ground
recently by a party of boys who ran
into him while coasting down Seventh
street. While he was not seriously in
jured yet In his feeble condition the
accident certainly hastened Lis death.
Following is the verdict of the jury :
"We, the jury in the aboye entitled
Inquest, find after due investigation that
the deceased's name was George Hoehn ;
that he came to his death in Oregon
City, Clackamas county, Or., February
13, 1899. That death was due to natural
causes, accompanied with old age and
injuries accidentally received from a
coasting party on Seventh street, in
Oregon City, February 2, 1SD9, and we,
the jury, hold no one responsible for his
death.
"The jury would also recommend that
coasting on city sidewalks be positively
prohibited by the proper athonty. Sign
ed, Hiram Straight, Amos Seaman,
Frank Winslow, G. II. Young and R.
D. Wilson."
The funeral was held Tuesday from
the German Evangelical church under
the auspicious of Meade Post, G. A. U.
Suicide.
Coroner M. C. Strickland received
notice Tuesday morning that a body had
been found near the roadside beyond
Clackamas Heights. The coroner re
paired to the place and had the body
brought into Oregon (Jity where an in
quest was held. The evidence brought
out at the inquest was to the effect that
the man was Christian Morlok, a Ger
man ; that he was mentally unbalanced,
and about two months ago committed
Buicide by shooting himself with a re
volver. His only relatives in this state
is an uncle near Redlands, Mr. A. Den
gler, with whom he had been boarding.
He was last seen alive on December 21,
last. Morlok had bought a farm in this
county and had some money in an Ore
gon City bank,
Washington. Feb. IS. President Mc
Kinley and party left Waehlngton for
Boston this afternoon.
Cnited fttatea forces coder General
Miller last Saturday have been received
heie.
On the morning of Friday, February
10, Miller sent an ultimatum to the com
mander of the rebels on shore, notifying
him that it waa hia intention to take
Ilo llo by force if necessary. Xoncom
batants and foreigners were warded to
leave the town within 24 boura. Tbe
rebels were also warned that they moat
attempt no further beligerent oper
ations. The gunboat Petrel waa then
moved to a position close in shore, and .
near the rebel fort, while tbe cruiser
Boston took op her station at the other
end of the town.
Friday passed quietly. Daring tha
day many refugees left town. At 3
o'clock on the morning of Saturday,
February 11, the Petrel aignaled to the
Boston that the rebels were working ia
their trenches. In return the Petrel
was ordered to fire warning shots upon
the tow n from her three-pounders. This
was done, and the rebela replied with a
harmless fusillade Tbe Boston and
Petrel then bombarded tha rebel tren- -ches,
completely clearing them of their
occupants.
Within a very short time after the
bombardment began flames broke out
simultaneously in various parts of the
town, whereupon the marines, acting aa
infantry and artillery, were landed from
the cruiser Boston, and a company was
sent ashore from the gunboat Petrel.
These detachments marched straight
into Ilo II, hoisting the Stars and Stripee
over trie fort, took possession of the
place in the name of the United Stales.
Tbe capture of the town and its de
lenses having been accomplished, the
marines and soldiers who bad been sent
ashore proceeded to the task of saying
the American, English and German
consulates from destruction by fire,
which was raging among the frail and
inflammable buildings of the town. The
Swisi c?nul's residence, which was In
the same row as the consulates named.
was burned. The entire Chinese and
native sections of the town were de
stroyed, but foreign mercantile property
escaped with slight damage. There was
some desultory firing by the enemy in
the outskirts of Hollo, hat not a single
American was Injured.
Miller's force had complete control of
the situation when the gunboat Petrel
Bailed1 from Ilo Ilo for Manila. The
Sixth artillery regiment occupied a po
sition commanding both the bridges
leading into town, and the Tennessee
volunteers and the Eighteenth United
States infantry were occupying the
trenches that had been constructed by
the rebels.
