in the streets of Basin, released by
a traveling doctor, are terrorizing
the inhabitants of the town who
have been living in , fear of their
lives. Ten days ago Dr. Arnold
, an alleged eye specialist, from Mon
tana, came to town selling eye med
icine. To attract attention the doct
or brought with him a collection of
freaks, among them being a snake
charmer, and several boxes of rat
tlesnakes. Because he had no state
license, the doctor was arrested- and
sent to jail for a week. Upon being
liberated, he found that his freaks
had ail . disappeared, the snake
charmer leaving behind his collec
tion of snakes. About dark the
doctor went to a corner of the town
opened the door of the snake cages,
permitting 25 big reptiles to escape.
. Arnold then got out of town on
horseback. The alarm was soon
spread and a night of terror spent
by the citizens who were afraid to
leave their residences. . Yesterday
all day was spent in killing snakes,
and today still others were killed.

any other point,' which is 'said to
have been the. notch touched in the
summer of 1 861 , ; The government
engineers however, doV hot ' recog

ing at Corvallis, Salem and other
points, all of which agree. The in

SIX MONTHS FOR MITCHELL.
And a Fine of One Thousand Dol
larsSentenced Yesterday by ,
Portland, July 2-5. In the feder
al court today, Judge DeHaven
pronounced sentence on Senator
Mitchell. The decree of the court
is that the venerable , senator pay a
fine of $1,000 and that he be con
fined for six months in the Mult
nomah county jail. Judge DeHav
en, in passing sentence, said he had
no option under the law but to im
pose sentence of both fine and im
prisonment. An appeal is being
taken to the United States supreme
court. Sentence will be suspended
until final decision is reached.
Under existing conditions it is
probable that Senator Mitchell's ap
peal to the supreme court will be
decided within a year. Until a de
cision is rendered he will continue
to draw his salary as United States
senator, but if the judgment of the
trial court should be sustained his
seat will thereupon become vacant.
If, on th2 other hand, the judg
ment should be reversed, the case
will be remanded for a new trial.
Senator Mitchell's termdoes not ex
pire until 1907. .
NONE TO CLAIM IT.
Charley Tower's Burial lot Died
Pauper but got Decent Interment.
There is a curious fact connected
with the death and burial of the
late Charles Tower. Nobody
knows to whom to deed his lot in
the graveyard. He had been in
Corvallis for forty years. He had
built fire places and chimneys and
flues during all those years, and
plastered houses, but he never told
anybody of relatives he had, if any
there were. He died in the poor
house without a suit of clothes for
his cold clay to go to the grave in
without a casket or money to buy
it with, : without anything in the
world but a reputation for being
honest and for doing honest wbrk
All these things, however, came to
old Charley, after he had winked
out. He wasn't buried in the pot
ter's field, but went into a grave in
a burial lot that was all hi3 own,
and which was purchased by Cor
vallisites from a contribution for
the purpose. - Undertaker Wilkins
led in the movement, supplying the
casket, clothing and other conven
iences, while Z. H. Davis, Chief
Lane and other citizens provided
other necessities. . It may be the
money that makes the man,; and
still it isn't always the money, but
good old fashioned citizenship that
gives a dead pauper decent burial.
W. 0. Trine in Portland Hospital-
Reported Doing Well.
Physical Director Trine, who
went to San Francisco last week for
medical treatment, is in a Portland
hospital.' He underwent a serious
surgical operation at noon Monday
having been for two and a half
hours under the surgeon's knife.
A note received' at the Times office
from Mrs. Trine a few minutes be
fore press hour relates that. Mr.
Trine has rallied , from the opera
tion and that he is doing well,
though the danger is not passed.
It appears that the trip was made
to San Francisco, that city being
reached Wednesday evening. Thurs
day morning a specialist was con
sulted, and he 1 declared that he
could do nothing, and advised Mr.
Trine to come home and take the
operation formerly proposed hy the
Portland surgeon. ; Portland was
reached Saturday, and the opera
tion performed Monday as related
IN THE COUNTRY.
For the day Disporting oat of Town
. Something an Observer saw.
It seemed evident that things
were doing among the town dogs.
Six of them passed up Adams
street, and out westward with -such
an air of business Sunday morning
tha- a pedestrian stopped to watch
them. There was a big black dog
at the head, and all followed ;at the
pace he set. A little white chap
with a long coat brought up the
rear, and all moved on with an air
as though each and all understood
whither they were journeying and
what the errand.
It made the observer wonder if
there was a canine Sunday picnic
on hand, and what was to be .the
list of ceremonies. This query
was emphasized when suddenly a
little brown dog, a block to the rear
came hurrying swiftly along in the
effort to catch up with the main
bunch. ; Strangely enough, too, a
block behind him, ; appeared an
other belated member of the party,
a little white chap, all out of breath
and sprinting with a desperate
stride in his effort to catch the oth
er picnickers. In the main bunch,
every tail was wagging, every dog
was trotting straight ahead tor the
country, anxious apparently to
reach the destination before the sun
got too hot. - ,
Out on another street, a carriage
load ot people, bound for the coun
try for the day, journeyed along,
though in a different direction. As
the observer took in the ' situation,
he wondered curiously, whether it
would be the people or the canines
that would have the best time as the
result of, the day out of town.
