Gone to Salem.
The Salem Statesman has the following to
say regarding one of Benton's old and re
spected citizens: Jii'lge C. E. Moore and
wife, of Benton county, moved to our city
on yesterday. They have taken charge of
the Snowden house just east ot the Uni
versity campus, and will on the 16th of
April open the Blind school. The Judge
and his family will make valuable additions
to Salem society, and will make very effi
cient managers of the school for the unfor
Limbs of toe Law.
Attorneys in attendance upon this pres
ent term of Circuit Court at this place are
th" presiding Judge R. S. Bean of Eugene
City, Prosecuting attorney, E. G. Hursh of
Roseburg, Judges R. S. Straan, L. Fiinn,
W. R. Bilyen, L. H. Montaney and "J. J.
Whitney of Albany, W. S. Hufford of
Newport, and resident attorneys Judges
John Burnett, John Kelsay, W. S. McFad
den, J. R. Bryson, E. Holgate and H. W.
Keesee, J. W. Bayburn, F. M. Johnson
and M. S. Woodcock. Wo regret to state
that the health of Judge F. A. Chenoweth
who has been in attendance for so many
years is so poor that he is unable to be in
attendance upon the active work of the
court, although heis in town.
During the last week . says the Salem
Statesman, the firm of Williams & England,
of this city, have sold two farms, one of
over 700 acres, belonging to Mr. David
Belaney, to Mr. J. R. Dickenson; the other
was the farm of K. E. Piyne, to Mr. J. W.
Hodsoo. The price paid in both cases was
$40 per acre ceh. Mr. Dickenson is from
the hop yards of Puyallup Valley, W, T.,
and it is his intention fo plant 100 acres to
bops. Being a practical hop-grower he
knows whereof he sre;iks, and he s iys that
the lands he has bought are equal to the
best for hop culture, and he is of the opin
ion that no better country can be found,
and that the development of this resource
is yet in it3 infancy. Mr. Hodson will also
plant a larje acreage in hops. It would
therefore appear that the hop "boom" has
struck Marion county as well as Lane.
Aaotior fToirn on tee Hirer.
The Standard says: W. O. Allen, E. S.
McComas and G, W. Sayers have purchased
a tract of over 400 acres of land, situated on
the Oregon side of the Columbia, about
three-quarters of a mile above Kalama, ex
tending along the river from the foot of
Deer island to Tide creek, on which they
purpose locating a city, to be called Lemore,
They expect that the landing of the monster
ferry of the N. P. R. R. will bs at that
place, and that when the road from this
city is completed to that point,, many deep
water ships will be loaded there. There is
plenty of water in front of their town site,
the main ship channel being only about
sixty feet from the shorOvthere.
Vomited up a Live Lizard.
For some time past James Kelly, a brake-
man on the East-side train, says the Sunday
welcome, has been suffering with internal
pains that almost distracted him and have
defied the best doctors and all the drug
stores in town to cure. On Tuesday ho
was taken with a violent fit of vometing,
and after a very severe effort threw into
the vessel in front of him a live lizard, fully
two inches long. How the reptile found its
way down Mr. Kelly's throat is a mystery,
but it is supposed to have come from drink
ing the stale water kept in the alleged
"coolers" on tne train, Kelly swallowing
the unwelcome tenant in embryotic shape.
The Statesman of the 22ud says: United
States District Attorney J. F. Watson was
married yesterday to Mrs. A. Kinney, of

very 'popular. The weddioff was Drivate
Resolutions of Respect.
Resolutions reported by the committee
and adopted by the Corvallis Lodge No. 14
A, F. and A. M. , at a stated communication
held on the 21st day of March 1883,
Whereas, It has pleased God in his all
wise Providence to remove from our mi-1st
by death our W. M. and brother, John Kee
see and feeling it to bs our duty that we
owe to our departed brother to give this last
tribute of respect to his memory. Therefore
Resolved, That in the death of our brotiier
John Keesee this lodge has lost its head;
and this lodge and the masonic fraternity
universally an active, zealous and energetic
member, his family a kind andaffeet:onate
husband and father and the community a
generons, upright and useful citizen.
Resolved, That while we fully realize that
no words of symnhathy or condolence which
v.e can exprens will compensate for or re
place the great loss his family has sustained
by the death of our brother yt w can as
sure them that his memory will bo fondly
cherished in tho breasts of his brethren.
Resolved, That those resolutions be copied
in the minutes of the lodge, a duly authen
ticated copy thereof be furnished to the
family of our deceased brother aud a copy to
each of the newspapers in the town with a
request to publislT (Signed)

The fish-wheel, we learn from an ex
change, for scooping np salmon during the
high water of spring, which was so success
ful last year as a fiBli destroyer, ia to be
atrain used this season on the Columbia,
ouly on a larger scale. Last year, in one
day and night, 4,000 lbs. of salmon were
scooped up and thrown upon the shore.
The wheels are built with plank paddles,
on projecting rock, so that the water run
mug down and striking them sets the wheel
to revolving. Within the wheels are placed
two large net scoops which catoh the sal
mon when coming up stream, whirl them
around and then dump them inte chute
boxes arranged for their reception on the
shore. The wholesale destruction by this
method will soou depopulate this stream of
the noble salmon and to prevent this possi
bility there should be some law passed to
restrict or do away with the wheel.
A Horrible Deatn.
Just as the steamer. State of California,
was leaving the wharf at Astoria, yesterday
morning, a deck-hand named Youman, on.
the tug Gen. Miles, stood on the tag as the
State of California was backing to get out.
The steamship was moving stern on toward
the tug and came near p . collision with it.
Youman sprang on the rail of the tug with a
fender to prevent damage. The collision,
which was sudden, but not violent, jarred
him off, and he fell into the -water right
where the great propeller of the steamship
was churning the water at a fearful rate,
and the man -disappeared. Dragging was
commenced immediately. Two hours after
the grappel hooked on to the body. It had
evidently been suskej under by aud gone
through the State's propeller. There were
several gashes in the head, the neck was
broken, one arm and one leg were broken,
and the other arm was torn from its socket.
Youmans was an Englishman aged 30. He
was a steady, industrious man and worked
a long time for Brown & McCabe, steve
dores in Portland and Astoria.
Extensive Eon Interests.
An exchange says: A short time ago we
stated that .an expert searcher had" been
looking up the title to the property in the
forks of tha Santiam aud the Willamette;
that 1000 acres would be purchased and set
out for a hop yard. Since then deids from
different owners of property ia that place
have been made out to Robert Bell, of Port
laud and the purchase price handed over. The
prica per acre ranges from ten to forty dol
lars. Instead of 1000 acres, 2100 acres will
be purchased, making this one of the largest
hop yards in the northwest. Already some
of the hops have been set. It is said that
this neck of land is peculiarly fitted for hop
raising on account of its moist condition,
the overflow of the 'rivers putting it in
splendid condition for hops.
Cocs Bay Improvements.
Col. Thomas Beale came up this week
from the Coqnille country to attend to bus
iness here in Roseburg, say3 the Plalndealer.
He reports time lively in Coos. He says
that great preparations are being made for
extensive logging this season, and that
there will be no less than three frailroads
built this summer in Coos, one by Mr.
Flanagan from Coal Bank slough to Isth
mus slough, one by H. H. Luse 4 Co. from
Sumner to Coquille City and the third by
the Dureu Bros, from Isthmus slough into
the timber for a distance of about one and a
quarter mile. They propose to' use steel
rails in the construction of these roads and
make permanent things out of them.
Els Body Snatched.
A convict in the states prison lately sent
up, died suddenly in that institution last
week and was buried the following day.
The circumstances of his death, it seems,
caused some suspicion of curiosity, and an
examination was determined upon by the
medical attendants of the penitentiary. Bat
on opening the grave it was found to be em
pty. The presumption is that the students
of the medical department of the city avail
ed themselves of this opportunity to secure
a desirable subject.
Seal fishing bids fair to be a paying busi
ness off Cape Flattery this year, says the
Port Towseud Arjus, as the run is lsrge
and the number of schooners ia that trade
is limited. The largest catch so far thia
winter for a single trip was made by the
schooner Mist, Capt. Win, Bogart twenty
nine seals in a day and a half, with but two

"fnute Elephant" Potato.
Corvallis, Or., March, 26, 1883.
Mb. Editor: P'ease allow me to invite
the attention of farmers to a new variety of
potatoes. The Agricultural College has
carefully tested th "White Elephant."
About two years ago, J. M. Thorburs, a
seedsman of New York, sent ono potato to
the college, to bs tested. The yield was
large. Seeds have bean distributed among
farmers, and the field- and quantity havs
been quite satisfactory. The potato is
loag, large, smooth, and white. Flavor ex
cellent. A limited quautity for seed can be
obtained from Mr. Wm. Crees, a farmer
living near Corvallis. From all accounts,
this is one of the very best varieties in cul
tivation; aud I should like for it to be more
extensively tested in different parts of the
county and state.

The citizens expect to have an excellent
school under way before many weeks.
Vast flocks of brants have filled the air in
and about the Bay with their mellifluous
cries during the week.
Flounders are very plentiful and large
this season. Oystervillo seems to be the
favorite grounds for this excellent fish, and
many pounds are caught there every day.
The Bay is full of herring. Mr, Bryant
caught a long string of them on Tuesday

Tho School for tho Blind.
The school for the education of the blind
will be opened in the city of Salem, on
Monday, April 16th, 18S3. and continue in
session eight weeks, at the expiration of
which time it will ba closed for the summer
J The school will bs re-opened, for the first
term of the regular school year, on Monday,
September 3, 1883.
Mrs. E. J. Dawno, former principal of the
school, has been employed as principal
tescher fir the first term. In securing the
services of Mrs. Dawne. the success of the
educational department is assured. The
necessity for a practical, energetic, experi
enced and earnest teacher to occupy the re
sponsible ,and perplexing position of princi
pal teacher in the school for tie- blind is ap
parent. The loss of vision renders the task of in
structing, disciplining and governing a most
laborious work. Should tha number of
pupile, daring the first term, be so large as
to require aa additional teacher, aa efficient
one will be provided.
A competent music teachar will ba em
ployed. Pupils will be received at the boarding
hall as early as April 12th. It is earnestly
requested that all who can make it con
venient to attend during the opening term
wilLbe present at the soove time.
The school will be held ia the Snowden
building, a large and commodious house,
located at the corner of State and 12th
streets, in this city. Pupils who expect to
attend the school are requested to provide
themselves with articles for the toilet.
The superintendent, matron, and the
teachers of the school, will endeavor to ex
ercise a constant and kindly Care over all
pupils committed to their charge.
All persons, in the State, desiring further
information in regard to the school will ap
ply in person or by letter to the superin
tendent. All communications will be
pramptly anewsred. Southern and Eastern

About the time the advertisement flrat appeared

remedy, although his friends laughed at his cred

and commenced using it on th.e horse in accordan t
with the directions, and he informed us th e weea
that it ejected buch a complete cure that an expc: i
