Who Ssrmwly Ecpe.
William II. Hall was certainly yery
nervous last Thursday night or Hilas
Hedges would today be sleeping with
five or six pieces ol lead in his body.
It will be remembered by the public that
a few days sgo this same William H.
Hall brought suit in the Circuit Court
against his wile and this man, fellas
Heilxes, lo dissolve the marriage con
tract between himself and wife because
of cohabitation between his wife and Si
las Hedges; the case was ho'ly contested
but poor William failed lo make his
points stick belore Juege McBride and
instead of winning out, Mrs. Hall and
Silas Hedues were fullv vindicated of
every cha.ge named in the complaint.
Lat Thursday night Silas Hedges was
reading a letter in Paul Meinig's store at
Ssndy when Mr. Hall came in, it being
the that meeting beiween these two men
since Ihe day of trial. ,ilall advanced a
few steps toward one of the Meinig hoys
and asked Liui if he didn't want to buy
some tine canned Iruit. This question
had no more than escape.' from mi lips
when a discharge from a 38 self-cocking
revolver which Hall held concealed in
his hand, went wb rung past Hedges
head and into the wall on the other side.
Hedges, realizing that danger and death
were hovering near, retreated toward
the rear of the store and sought protec
tion behind some barrels and clothing
stands, being followed closely by Hall at
every step. Six shots were fired at him
in quick succession till the gun wasemp
lied. All the time Mr. Hedges was re
treating towaid Ihe back door, through
which he escaped. Mr. Hall has been
placed onder arrest and out under $1500
honda to await his trial sometime be
tween now and April. This strange pro
ceeding and Ihe narrow escape of Mr.
Hedges ha- been Ihe subject ol a great
deal of comment on the part of Mr.
IJuilju.1 mfiv fripndd in this i-oonl V. the
prevalence of opinion being that Hall is
a dangerous man anil not sale to run si
large. Mr. Hedges reputation has been

his charges, for Silas Hedgos is one ol
the most highly respected men in Clacka

Four Associations Hett and Arrange
Plans fgor Sett Season' Work.
Ever) thing ludlcatr Harmony.
Hon. II E. Cross has just returned
from San Francisco, where, on Jan. 14, i
he attended a great meeting of the four
Chautauqua Associationa ol this coast
and was honored with Ihe responsible
and influential office of coast manager.
At this meeting was assembled a rep
resentative of each association, to h:lp
determine tiie procedure and the plan
for the ensuing season. Professor George
K. Crow, o? Los Angeles, wan pr.--.ent in
and came in the internals of the Long
Bearh Association. Dr. Tlnmin- 'iit-n,
of Monterey, represeuled Pacdic Grove
Chaiitauaua. Mr. G. F. Billinge. of
Ashland, was in attendance to look after
the interests of the Ashland A'sociation
and Mr. Cross Was theie as the repre
sentative of the Wiliametto Yalley Asso
ciation. The primary object of this assembly of
r.r.imiiiint msR was to confer in r-uiirl
in tulwot for thn rnminu- season and also.
tJ come to some defiiiite uiiderstaii.luin
ahonl ine uates tor me respecnve meet
ings of the lour assemblies and to elect
a cuaiit mauager to attend to procuring
talent and arranging dates and transpor
tation for the speakers. In this capacity
V r rVoM. waa elfH-tMi to act. which le-
sponsibihty he will, by reason of bis ex
perience as a i liamauqua worker ana
business man, fill with satisfaction and
At this meeting there was had a thor
ough nnderstanding in regard to tlie
dales for the meetings; the time for
holding the Willamette Yalley Chau au
qna Association, in which the people of
Oregon City are so oeepiy inieres eu,
was arranged to begin July 14 and con
tinning to and including July 2r, V.IJ2.
The dates for the other three a-s.sjiatijna
are practically the same, or nearly eo,
which fact will make it possible for alt
the meetings to get the host of talent
it comes from the other associations.
I l.a aiauiksn will work from north to
south and from south to north ; as one
finishes his appointment nere ne i i go
south and another from Ihe suuth w.ll
arrive to take his place.
The Chautauqua spirit at Long rteacli,
and the Chautauqua movement as well,
has unexpectedly risen lo first rank ou
the Pacific cjaat. This association ha
an endowment of $7000 every year with
$700 on hand at Ihe present time; a lew
years ago this association was in euibar
rawed tinancial straits but has pulled out
well since then, largely the result of fIVe
advertiaing. It wilt be of some inletest
to the people of Oregon to know tint.
it was a fact conceded at this uie-tiiii(
that the Chautauqua at jladstouo tin
last season was the beet on tins coast,
and as a proof of the fact that it ai the
beet in attendance il was showu that
while a season ticket at Pacific G'ovo
cost $2 50 and a d.y ticket 5!l cents, their
gro-a receipts were not lo exceed $ :SJ0,
while our season ticket was 00. day
tickets I'o cents aud gross receipts ;iiil)0.
None of the Chautauquans have an in
terest in the- asseinmy giound except
those who Iwlong to the illaineite Val
ley association. Our uieeltt'g place, the
beautiful grounds with their easy access,
wer louceded to surpass any ou the Pa
Mr. Cross states that just at this titue
no announcement ol who the talent will
hu i-nn he made until the contracts are
clcsed, hut assurance is :iven that the
assembly this coming season will far
surpass anything of fi'imer years in the
way of interesting features and draw ing
attractions. The Chautauqua movemeiu
in tl.w pmintrv is here and we lr?dict
that it is here to stay, at leat we hope so.
