Sa-jvle's island -was not overrun by duck
hunters yesterday, as usual on Sundays,
lor the reason that there -were very few
ducks to shoot. Captain AV. J. Riley re
ceived a letter Saturday from the man In
charge of his premises, stating that all
the birds had left on Friday for some
more genial clime. He had kept the lake
open by breaking away the Ice, and about
a. thousand ducks had been using them.
1-ut at last they became disgusted, and
having wings and no business to detain
them, and no luggage to hamper them,
they "lit out." Several large lots of
ddcks have been received here since the
cold -weather sot in, and the lakes freez
ing over caused the birds to collect in the
open places, where they vere "potted" and
sla-jghtered ly the score. There is not
likely to be many more ducks here till
spring, as those which have flown south
riil stay there until they know winter Is
past. Some canvasbacks may come In by
an J by, as they are now scattered around
the bays along the coast. They will have
a fishy taste when they first arrive, but if
they can find a patch of wapatoes to feed
en for a week or two, they will become
fat and free from the fishy taste. Some
people prefer such a flavor in ducks, and
relish fat fixhducks just as well as a
jil imp mallard or canvas, but most peo
ple prefer to take their fish and duck on
Feparate plates. There are some swan
ard wild geese still remaining here, but
they keep to the rivers, and it is difficult
to get a shot at them.
Scavenger Newsome Is Blooded.
Enoch Newsome, who has been 21 years in
the 'avenger business in this city, is the
Tloneer in that line, and since Peter
Sjkes departed at the ripe age of about
3W) years, is the oldest scavenger in the
c.ty. He has attended strictly to business
and never made populist speeches on the
plaza, nor associated with the Coxeyltes,
and as a result Is comfortably fixed, hav
ing a rather valuable quarter block on
v.hich he lives, as well as considerable
other property. He is fond of a good
liorse, and his greatest pleasure during
pa3t years has been to go out driving
on Sunday in a good buggy behind a
high-stepping horse. On such occasions
Tc wears a fashionable suit and an irre
proachable silk hat. He called at the au
ditor's office Saturday to attend to some
business, and another visitor remarked to
him that he did not go out pleasuring
bo much as he used to. "No," said he,
"the old man is getting along in years,
and can't get around like he used to, but
when a fine day comes, and I do go out,
1 come out like a man. I'm blooded to
the backbone, and believe in making folks
think you have coin whether you have
it or not." There are many who believe
in the came thing, who do not attend to
business like Mr. Newtome, and although
they put on more style, have not so much
coin as he has.
"Vht Oranges Are Hicn Priced. The
cold snap which destroyed the orange
crop In Florida, and entailed a loss of
several millions on the fruitgrowers of
that state, Is likely tc benefit the orange
growers of California to the extent of
r.,000,000. Captain T. N. Belcher, who
owns an orange grove at Rlvcrdale, Cal.,
has within the past few days received
several letters from persons desirous of
buying his crop. Testerday morning he
noticed in the dispatches to The Orego
rilan that oranges had jumped to a very
high priccin New York, and then he un
derstood why buyers were so anxious. As
his crop Is not yet picked, he is in no hur
ry to sell, and will wait to see how high
the price goes. California oranges suf
fered rather severely from a frost a year
or two ago, but while it Is possible. It Is
very improbable that there will be any
mishaps of that kind this year. Captain
Belcher's grove Is In a good location, and
1 e has no fear for his crop now. and
hopes to realize something handsome
The Blessings or Bull Run "Water.
It was fortunate that Bull Run water
ias turned on New Year's, for If it had
not been, it would probably not have
been turned on yet, and citizens
.voi Id have beer, drinking muddy Wlllam
ttte water, which, since the late storm
caused the river to rise several feet, looks
like paint, and is about as thick. The
storm disabled the Bull Run telephone,
and If there had been any delay In turn
ing on the water, the order could not
have been sent to the headworks for sev
eral days. On Thursday It was necessary
to send a messenger out to Mount Tabor.
He was five hours getting there and back,
his horse- having given out when about
half way out, and he being compelled to
walk the remainder of the way. To have
sent a messenger to the headworks would
have been practically Impossible. Now,
when the Willamette is as muddy as it
i possible to make It, the people of Port
land are being served with the clear, pure
water of Bull Run and they appreciate it.
Schools Will Resume Todat. Studies
will be resumed In the public schools this

Fleet on the West Side was nothing com

country between Piedmont and Wood

which did great damage to shade and
fruit trees, especially peach trees. Rows
cf poplars were stripped of limbs and

th county court to loan Jie.008, money of
the estate, which he has on hand, to Ladd

that he has the money and does not now

A Ratdejg Bear's Fatal Meal. A
big bear recently raided the camp of some
Chinese miners on Snake river, while
they were all out washing gold on a bar
in the river. He made a general average
of the stock of provisions, ate up all their
pork, preserved ducks, a box of apples,
etc, and scattered rice and Cour all over
the cabin. Finally he discovered an
opium layout, by some means got the
cover off a can of opium and, fancying
the taste or smell of it, ate enough to
put him to sleep. When the Chinese came
home to dinner they found the bear still
unconscious and snoring like a volcano,
and with a rifle blew his brains out. There
was a scene of feasting and revelry by
night in that camp for a week, and the
skin, claws and gall bladder of the bear
were hung up as trophies. As one of the
Chinese explained to a white neighbor
who called: "Bear he heap eat pork, heap
eat duck, but opium too muchee for him,
and Chinaman heap catee bear you
Hunter Could Not Give Bonds. A. L.
Hunter, under arrest, and confined In the
central police station, on a charge of
obtaining money under false pretenses,
did not furnish ball as he expected to
yesterday. Judge Smith came over from
Albina for the purpose of approving his
bond, if found satisfactory, but on reach
ing the station, found that Hunter had
changed his mind. The prisoner proposes
to waive examination in the municipal
court today, and then furnish ball if he
can. His son, Harry, who was expected to
surrender himself yesterday afternoon,
failed to do so. He is wanted on a simi
lar charge, but is out on 52000 bail, await
ing examination for perjury. The arrest
of both grew out of them being witnesses
to establish the death of Richard Banker,
thereby enabling his wife to defraud the
A. O. U. W. out of $2000 insurance money.
Banker will arrive here today from Iowa,
in custody of Detective Joe Day.

SELECTING SCHOOL BOOKS
IVliut Governor Pcnnoyer Says About
the CnnvnhM of Vote.
Some curiosity has been expressed re
garding the passage of a resolution by
the Committee of One Hundred, on Satur
day, regarding the canvas of votes for the
selection of school books. The resolution
requests that Governor Pennoyer be
asked to postpone the execution of any
contract until time be given for a care
ful examination of such ballots, and of
legal questions arising in the canvas
Governor Pennoyer received a copy of
the resolution on Saturday night, and
when seen yesterday by a press repre
"I will exercise due diligence to see that
the law Is fully carried out, and that n.
correct tabulation of the votes is made.
I do not think that any officer of the
board would jeopardize his reputation by
being in any way connected with the
making of a false return. The ballots
by the superintendents and board of ex
aminers are public property, and are
placed on file, where they can be seen
by any one."
In regard to the vote of Miss Stevens,
superintendent of instruction for Union
county. Governor Pennoyer said that her
vote will be counted, as she is superin
tendent of Union county, de facto and de
jure, and the vote of J. L. Carter has
been thrown out. The question was sub
mitted to judges of the supreme court.
and the authority shown was sufficient to
warrant her recognition as the rightful
superintendent. Tilman Ford, of Salem,
also made an argument in her favor be
fore the board. Mr. McElroy was not at
first satisfied, but he afterward admitted
that the vote of Miss Stevens was proper.
It was suggested that the attorney-general
be asked to give an opinion in the
matter, but now that will hardly be
necessary, f-s it has been agreed that the
vote of Miss Stevens shall be counted.
The return of Secretary of State Mc
Brlde from the East will result in a full
board being present at the adjourned ses
sion today in Salem. The votes were all
opened on last Wednesday, and while no
information has been officially given out.
there are well-defined rumors that the
American Book Company has been suc
cessful in most, if not all of the books
submitted for selection. State Superin
tendent McElroy has been engaged In
making a tabulation of the -votes, and it
Is expected that this work will be com
pleted today and the result furnished the
A good deal of interest is manifested
as to just what the vote will really show.
There have been a number of charges
made concerning the manipulation ot
voters, and the resort of peculiar methods
to secure votes which a detailed state
ment of the 41 votes east is expected to
reveal, and interested parties are anxious
ly waiting a chance to study the returns.
Some of the representatives of publishing-houses,
who spent some time in
Portland, urging the claims of their re
spective books, have geee away In dis
gust, but others silll remain, tatendhig,

the vote is made. What they will do after
that has not yet been determined- It is
claimed that a prominent citizen and
taxpayer of Oregon will possibly take a
hand In the matter, and apply for an in
junction, enjoining the board of education
from closing any contract if it is shown
that through any undue influence or cor
rupt means, inferior books have been se
lected, or that through the manipulation
of interested parties, the parents in the
state are to be made to pay out thou
sands of dollars for books, when others
equally as good could have been secured'
at a far less cost.
EAST SIDE AFFAIRS.
Householders Moat Keep Their Walks
Clear of Snow and Debris.
The edict has gone forth and must be
obeyed that the sidewalks and streets
must be cleared from the numerous ob
structions caused by the breaking down
of shade trees by the late storm. Captain
of Police James is fully determined that
all the obstructions must be removed at
once. Very little has been done in that
direction, although in some portions of
the East Side for whole blocks the side
walk Is obstructed by broken limbs and
trees bent over. It Is not an easy matter
for the new officers to notify everybody
to clear the debris away, but the work
will be pushed until the obstructions are
removed. The ordinance specifies that
the work must be done by the owner, oc
cupant or agent.
Free Ferry Running Again.
After about half a day's delay the free
ferry on Stark street resumed operation
yesterday morning at 8 o'clock. The im
mediate cause of the suspension was an
accident at the East Side approach. An
immense tree lodged against the cable
and swung hard against the pontoon, pre
venting safe landings being made with
either the large or small boat, and trips
had to be stopped to give time to make
repairs. It required considerable time
and the service of a large river steamer
to pull the log from its lodgment, but it
was finally accomplished. It was also
necessary to pull up the pontoons, on ac
count of the rise of the river. The snow
fall prevented this being done quickly. It
is hoped there will be no further interrup
tion of the free ferry, and that it may be
given a full opportunity to demonstrate
what advantage it will bring to Central
A Ride In the Country.
Dr. D. Raffety was called out to Lent's
the terminus of the Mount Scott & Port
land railroad, Saturday, and took occa
sion to observe the effects of the storm
while on the way. It appears evident the
storm was far more serious to the east
ward than in the city, and that the de
struction of fruit trees will prove very
great, especially where the trees are
nearly matured. Dr. Raffety said that
on either side of the road the tall fir
trees were blasted from top to bottom, as
if struck by a tornado. Large branches
were broken from their sides like pipe
stems. The further into the country Dr.
Raffety penetrated the greater the de
struction appeared to be. Fruit trees, he
said, were a pitiable sight, fine, thrifty
trees being nearly denuded of their limbs
from top to bottom.
A horse driven by Clarence Lawrence
was killed on Union avenue at Sacra
mento street, in Upper Albina, Saturday
evening. Lawrence was driving along
the avenue with a double team, when one
of the horses suddenly fell like a log. He
had stepped on a live electric wire, and
the full force of the current from the
street-car trolley quickly extinguished
the last spark of life in his body. The
other horse escaped without injury. Law
rence received a heavy shock, but it was
not sufficient to do him any harm. The
wire could not be seen, as it was buried
in the snow for some distance. As soon
as the horse's shoe struck the wire a com
plete circuit was made. The body of the
animal had not been removed yesterday.
The officers of Winona tribe. Improved
Order of Red Men, will be invested this
evening publicly by Fred Kennedy, dep
uty great sachem. The tribe closes a
very prosperous year, and after rendering
a great amount of financial help to its
members, the wampum belt shows a bal
ance of over $200, which speaks well for
the work of the tribe. No worthy mem
ber of this tribe has ever been permitted
to suffer during there hard times.
Charles Hayes, a boy who carries The
Oregonian, was attacked by a bulldog

others in a similar manner. The
boy was passing the house when the fe

a very easy time at present. The tele

inspecting that portion of his district.
Two officers are sick Hudson and Thom
son. The latter, who is a mounted officer,

DAVENPORT IN JAIL.
The Linn County Counterfeiter Cap
tured by Deputy Humphrey.
Deputy United States Marshal George
Humphrey arrived here at 1 o'clock yes
terday morning on the delayed California
express with "Doc" Davenport, charged
with counterfeiting, who was arrested
eight miles from Lebanon. The roads be
ing in a terrible condition when Mr.
Humphrey reached Lebanon, Friday
evening, and it being impossible to ob
tain a conveyance, he employed Joseph
Smith and D. D. Shaw, whom, from his
experience when sheriff of Linn county,
he knew to be the right kind of men, to
go out and bring in Davenport. He gave
them his pistol and handcuffs, and they
tramped out the eight miles, arrested
Davenport, searched his house, secured a
lot of counterfeit dollars, plaster moulds,
solder, scraps of lead and pieces of a
bell, and some brass; also a ladle used
for melting the mixture for the coins.
They then marched Davenport back Into
Lebanon, and turned him over to Mr.
Humphrey. The only coins Davenport
has been making are dollars, of which
a dozen or so were .secured. They are
rather poor Imitations of the genuine coin.
There were no signs of the other parties
who, it is said, have been making coun
terfeit 510 pieces.
Mr. Humphrey and Davenport are old
acquaintances. Some ten years since,
when Mr. Humphrey was sheriff of Linn
county, he arrested Davenport for mak
ing counterfeit dollars, and he was sen
tenced to ten years in the penitentiary.
After he had served out his term, he came
back io Linn county, and Mr. Humphrey,
as justice of the peace, married him to
Mrs. Mills, a widow, who owned a farm.
He says Davenport bears him no grudge
on this account, but he is not certain how
Mrs. Davenport feels about It, and it may
be that this is why he sent Smith and
Shaw out to arrest her husband. Daven
port is a man of some education. He
served a term in the army, and wa3 as
sistant surgeon at Fort Klamath during
the Modoc war. After marrying Mrs.
Mills, he started a drug store at Tangent,
but did not make a financial success of the
business. Lately he has been living on
his wife's farm, which Is a very good
one, but somewhat incumbered. Just
why he again went into the counterfeiting
business is not known, but perhaps he
had an idea that he could make money to
pay off the mortgage.
Finn. That Mny be Taken During: the
Winter The Prices They Brlmr-
The sturgeon fishery Is not amounting
to much at present, not more than two
tons a week being caught.Tind 'the price
has gone- up to C or' 7 'cciiunper"pound,
at which there is nothing to be made in
shipping them East. The business of
shipping sturgeon East commenced six
years ago, and has been carried on so
actively that the rivers haye been about
cleaned of these fish. One year 15,000 tons
of dressed sturgeon were shipped, and
now there are practically no grown fish
left. The rivers have been filled with lines
strung with thousands of hooks, and near
ly half the sturgeon caught now are
scarred all over, showing that they have
previously been entangled and hooked,
but succeeded in making their escape.
If there had been a law allowing stur
geon to be caught only during three or
four months in the year, there might
have been plenty left yet. There are still
many young sturgeon to be found, and If
they were protected, the rivers might
be populated with them again, but it
must take a long time for sturgeon to
grow to full size.
At present the fishermen are turning
their attention to capturing steelhead sal
mon. There are probably some 75 boats
altogether employed irregularly in this
fishery, and from two to four tons are
caught dally, and shipped East Many
fishermen living In scows along the Co
lumbia employ themselves in bad weath
er in knitting nets, and, when the weath
er is favorable, go out drifting for steel
heads. Some also have set nets in cover
and favorable places, as the snow or
ice does not stop these fish from running.
The steelheads bring about three cents
per pound, and some of the fishermen
make fair wages, for this season at least.

A DISPUTE OVER MILEAGE
Sheriff Scars Claims It, and ia Civil
Cases Collects It.
A controversy exists between Sheriff
Sears and County Judge Northup, con
cerning the right of the sheriff to collect
mileage for serving long-distance papers,
and the judge has declined to order the
payment of Mr. Sears salary for Decem
ber, amounting to 5373, until the matter
is settled between them.
In criminal cases, where papers, such
as warrants, summons and subpenas,
have to be served at a distance, the sher
iff has no recourse but to serve the
documents, and pay expenses, when any
are entailed, out of his own pocket. The
county judge will not pay mileage, be
cause he says the law does not provide
for It, and that ends the question.
But in civil cases. Sheriff Sears has,
he states, been collecting from the liti
gants: that is, when a lawyer files a
complaint and summons that have to be
taken eight miles for service, he collects
SO cents mileage for the work. If papers
have to be carried to distances like Linn
ton, or Latourelle Falls, a little more
mileage is charged. The .sheriff states
that deputies who are receiving 590 a
month could sometimes pay out all they
earn, in their own expenses on this long
