Monroe. He was sent from this county a

we hope everyone will call and settle soon

that all differences in the way of a few
dollars should be adjusted by payment.
Don't all pay at once, but then we would
like to have what is due the office, no more,
no less.
Large Immigration to the Northwest
Colonel Dawson who returned recently to
San Francisco from an extended tour
through Europe, says he was "surprised
daring his visit to find so many preparing
to move to the United States next year.
The country was filled with pamphlets and
circulars of government lands and contain
ing iufurmatiou about California, Oregon
and Washington Territory. The north
west generally was liberally advertised.
A fair percentage is expected to go to Ore
gon. Some government aid is inlircctly
given to German settlers in Mexico. In
tending immigrants complain much of let
ters received from friends in this country,
giving troubles which annoy immigrants
when they arrive at Castle Garden, and
from thence to their destination."
Murder and Robbery.
Caldwell, Idaho was thrown into a fever
ish state of excitement early Sunday morn
ing by the discovery of the dead bodies of
Brassfield and Bryan in an unfinished hotel,
says the Standard. There were evidences
of a life and death struggle about them.
The men had sold a large stock of hides
and pelts on Saturday and were supposed
to have had money on their persons, but
had deposited all except $300, which, to
gether with personal property, Was taken.
The murder was committed by two noto
rious characters, "Sagebrush Jack" and
"Whistling Kid," with car coupling pins.
The murdered men were asleep, in their
blankets, all the lodging houses being ful'.
Both of the murderers were captured late
Sunday, evening, and lynching was expected,
but later advices say the law will take its
Pioneers Return.
Wm. Kayals of this county returned last
week from his trip East with the pioneers.
He visited part of Missouri, Iowa and oth
er localities. lie is better than ever
satisfied with Oregon. Ho is disappointed
with the condition of the States where he
visited, because instead of being on the
progressive the country there seems to be
on the decline. Instead of the improve
ments being better than when he left there
they are not in good repair and are going to
rack. Much of the laud where large corn
formerly grew will not raise corn at all.
The element in the land which formerly
produced corn being entirely exhausted,
and the people thus circumstanced are en
deavoring to make a living bv raising a
little grass and a few calves. This is the
inevitable result of glowing one kind of
crop on the same land continuously for too
great length of time. If farmers of Oregon
do not change crops more than heretofore
they will soon find that the element in the
land which produces wheat will be exhaust
ed and they will also have to turn their
land out to colt pasture.
Finlayson Arrested In Eastern Oregon,
Tells Bis Story.
Charles B. Finlayson, the 15 year old boy
who was suspected of murdering a few days
ago, near Albany, Linn county, Oregon, his
step-grandmother, was arrested last Tues
day morning while in bed at about 3 A. M.
in the morning by sheriff Humphrey, of
Linn county.
"A man who has known the" boy since
childhood, said that the boy always had an
ungovernable temper. At school when en
raged, he would not hesitate to attack a
playmate with any weapon at hand. Mrs.
Finlayson was no blood relative of the boy,
she being his grandfather's second wife.
His theory of the crime is that in a
fit of uncontrollable passion, he dealt the
woman a murderous blow, and being crazed
by the sight of blood, finished the butchery.
Ransacking the house was an alter thought.
He discredits the theory that the boy was
surprised by his grandmother while rob
bing the house, and killed her to prevent
detection. Finlayson had no money about
him when arrested."
"He states that shortly after his grand
father went away his grandmother told him
he had better go out to plough. He did
no: feel well, and did not wish to go, and
some words ensued, when she hit him with
a small stick of stove wood she had in her
hand. The blow did not hurt him much,
but angered him, and as she stooped to put
the slick in the stove he struck her on the
back of the head with an ax. She was
dazed by the blow, but staggered into her
bed room. He followed her and took a
knife lying on a table, and stabbed her a
number of times. When lie had done, she
told him to say good-by for her to all her
Mends. She then asked for a drink of
water, which he brought, and after taking
some she ceased to breathe. He then cov
ered her with the bed clothes, and after
taking a few dollars in money, left."
Ed. Gazette. If young Finlayson was lay
ing around the house because he did not
feel well and therefore did not go to plow,
it is curious that he should have an ax at
hand with which to strike the murdered
woman just at the moment she hit him
with the stove wood. An ax is not usually
kept about the habitable rooms of a dwell
ing. This part of his statement is certainly
too short to go around very far. If the old
lady did strike him with the stick as !;e re
lates it is most likely that he took the
time to go from the house to the woodpile
to get the .ax and return.
Considering that many people are making
daily all manner of inquiries relative to the
German carp, a car-loa I of which has been
forwarded to this city by the Fish Commis
sioners at Washington, they are preparing
a pamphlet, which will contain, among
other things, the following discriptiou of
the carp, say3 the Portland N.:ws.
"l'he carp is a pound lioh, and is es
pecially adapted to small bodies of still
and muddy water. They are not, properly
speaking, a game fish. They can be wintered
in a cellar with proper care. They are
quite hardy and can be kept alive out of
water, if in mass, twenty-four hours. There
are three species of the carp the scale,
leather and mirror. As food they are equal
or superior to catfish, suckera perch aud all
the common native varieties. They are fit
for table from October to May. Carp will
thrive in ditches or cranberry bogs if free
from turtles or snakes. They grow rapidly
in warm water and very slowly in cold.
They will live in water so shallow that their
backs sometimes protrude. They are a slug
ish fish, and eare nothing for running wa
ter. They should be cared for much as
chickens and pis are on a farm, aud will
soon become accustomed to coming to cer
tain spots on the edge of the pond every
day and eating from your hand. Kitchen
refuse is good food for them, and they will
rapidly fatten aud grow on such diet. Salt
meats and alkili are injurious. Fish thus fed

The effect of prison convict labor is be
ginning to be felt in this city and may re
sult in a rupture between the proprietors
and' employes of the Willamette Stov
Works on Frcnt street, says the Portland
Standard. It is understood that the pro
prietors have been compelled to admit that
since stove works were started iu the pen
itentiary, competition has been great, and
it was necessary to make a cut of twenty
per cent, in the wages of fitters and finish
ers, and have give notice to the moulders of
a similar reduction in their wages. The
time for the latter cut to take effect is
nearly up, and it is reported that the
moulders will not agree to it. As it is not
an easy matter to pick up skilled workmen
in this line of business, it can be seen that
the Willamette Stove Works will suffer
inconvenience and loss. This is one of the
baneful effects of the system of prison labor
utilized in branches of business upon which
honest people depend for a livelihood.
