ette river will this year not only
break all records for low water, -but
come as near locking up river traffic
as possible. It is now one-tenth of
a loot below low water, or that
much lower than ever was known,
and it is ttili falling. The tide is
not apt to turn until late in Octo
ber, and if the rains do not come
earlier than usual, we may expect
to see the river go a foot or , more
below the lowest record.
ALL IS NOT PEACE.
Among the Real Estate Men Differ
ences Ended in Blows-What the
An unpleasantness is on among
the real estate men of this town.
Affairs reached the point . Saturday
evening when the belligerency
resulted in an abbreviated street
fracas. Some of the other agents
allege that James Lewis is an of
fender almost beyond the pardon
limit. When they get a client,
they claim that he butts in and if
he cannot make the sale himself, he
runs the prospective buyer out of
the county, if possible. They give
specifications with instances to
prove what they say. They claim,
too. that among all the other agents
there is a form of etiquette that is
constantly observed m wmcn one
agent never butts in until . another
agent has given up the case, and
that one never seeks to break up or
interfere with a sale already made.
They go on and allege that in some
instances Mr. Lewi? has gone to
parties who have already bargained
for property, and has said things
to them to make them dissatisfied.
On the other hand, Mr. Lewis
denies "all and in toto, the allega
tions of the agents. He says he
doesn't go to persons who have al
ready bought of his rivals and seek
to break up their trades. He in
sists that his demeanor towards
other agents is courteous and tha
he does not butt in to spoil sales,
and he does not run buyers out of
the county to prevent them from
purchasing of rival agents. Of
course the private differences of the
real estate men are no concern of
the Times and of but little interest
to the public. If however, the con
ditions get to the point where one
real estate man should actually
persist in steering buyers put of the
county to prevent rivals from mak
ing a sale, then it will become the
serious business of the people who
will be hkelv to insist that the
practice be stopped.
In the anair ot last Saturday ev
ening a man named Kelb, who re
sides across the Willamette, and of
wnom it was claimed that he was
interested with Mr. Lewis in run
ning a buyer out of Benton who
was about to buy the John Buchan
an farm, was struck with a cane by
Captain Robinson, as a result of
angry words that passed between

the Kiger horse claim that cocaine
was surreptitiously injected into the
shoulder of the Kiger animal with
the effect that his joints were stiff
ened and his speed reduced. ' A
lump on the shoulder furnished a
basis for the allegation.
