Dan Hill, who was lately incarcerated in
in the county jail at Portland for complicity
in the robbery of the U. S. mail in Coos
county, is in a v ery bad condition, and it is
feared that he will not live many months.
In addition to having heart disease, he is af
flicted with quick consumption, and is rap
idly growing worse. He has been a resi.
dent of Coos county since childhood, and
with the assistance of friends at onetime
established himself in business with fair
prospects of success, when he formed the
habit of drinking and gambling, which has
placed him where he now is.
The people at Grange Hall in this ccunty

From a persouai interview with the
man now coiitiued in the county jail for
the killing of his father-in-law, Mr. T. J.
Dennis, in the mounta 'n near the Alsea
vallev recently, we tind that his name is
Asa Burbank, that he is 33 years old,
weighs 160 lbs. and is about 5 ft 6 inches
high. Light complected, and hair and
beard very light almost white. He for
merly lived in Polk county, about 2J
miles north of Independence, and equally
distant from Monmouth. Ho lived there
on the farm, and in aud about Indepen
dence from his childhood until some time
last fall, when he moved to the Alsea
valley. He appears to be unwilling to talk
of the crime with which he is charge.!.
On being asked what he knew of the val
uable mineral which was reported that
Dennis had kliscovered on his place, be
c ho tnutr nothing about it : that he
had heard Dennis and family speak of
some black sand, but what it was or where
it was located he kuew nothing whatever.

Mel His Doom.
John Elfule was hanged at Walla Walla
1 it Tuesday for the murder of Dan H.g
gerty, at Precott. Before entering the
ga'Iows, which was in a private enclosure,
he took a look at the crowd on the outs'de
of the grounds, and said : "Good-bye
boys." He was very cool and indifferent,
Reaching the scaffold, which was surround
ed only by a few reporters and witnesses,
he said: '! have uot much to say. I am
guilty and will be hanged; but 1 did it to
save myself. I did not intend to do it in a
cold-blooded manner. I dou't know how I
did it. When I first trie I to sho it I laid
the gan down, and did uot think it right.
I thought the g in was not loaded, but
soinethiu? said to me : "If you do the
deed you will go down there;" (pointing to
thegrouud). 'Thad no incentive except
that this man owed me four bits, aud Hag'
gerly protected him. This was uot right.
I have nothing more to say. I am ready
and may God have mercy on me." As the
sheriff was arranging the black cap, he said:
"That's enough; don't bother me any more.
I hope you will forgive me for trying to get
awav. but I did it to save my life." The
trap was then sprung. Death was instan
taneous, aud his neck was broken. In
twelve minutes his pulsj ceased to beat.
The body was cut down; coffined and
buried. The execution was privaie.
Many of those who he ml his last words
regard him as weak minded.
The following is a list of the road super

The TUne . atariidcic.
The first iron full-rigged ship built in the
United States arrived in Astoria recently,
210 days from Chester, Pennsylvania, and
200 days from New York, and it is calcu
lated that she can carry 4250 tons of meas
urement. She was built in Roach's ship
yard in Chester, Pennsylvania, and is named
after the wife of William Hardwin Star-
buck, of New York City, who is her sole
ww . t , - r. I
owner. Her Keel was iaia in lyecemojr oi,
and she has been built under an especial
survey of the Bureau Veritas, and at the
New York office they say that the Tillie L
Starbuck is the strongest and best built
vessel that has ever passed under inspection,
and has received from the bureau its highest
classification. Shejleft Chester Juue 13,
liS3. but encountering stormy weather pu
into New York to repair, from which port
she sailed June 23. Breezes fohl and tern
pests murky chased her over the southern
Atlantic, and about the middle of Sep
tember she arrived at Stauley, in the
Falkland Islands, and repaired her spars
which were slightly strained. From there
on the 11th of October she resumed her
voyage to Astoria and r jiin led the Horn in
safety, beinj SDken on the 'aoirio side
Oct. 28th, and arrived in Astoria ou Jan
10, 1884. The caro of the Starbuck is the
mint valuable that ever left xKew York iu
sailing vessel, aud is said to be the most val
uable that ever rounded the Horn, and
assuredly the most valuable ever crossed
the Columbia river bar. Among the other
little articles of bric-a-brac that adorn the
hold may be mentioned twenty-two loco
motives for the N. P. R. R. The large
ferry-boat to be used between Ka'uma and
the Oreg hi side of the Columbia is also to
oe found somewhere in her hold, and is at
preseut in 57,159 pieces. The total valne
:f the Starbuck's ctrgo is somewhat be"
tween 3300,000 and $1,003,000. -d toria .
The Trouble at Pendleton
Discharged railroad hands from the Baker
City branch aud from the O. S. L., who
claim to have time checks and can not get
pay upon without going to headquarters at
fortlaud, boarded the traia at fendleton
last Friday, to the number of 130 or 140.
They were laborers of all nationalities, and
some took places in the passenger coacb,
others tilled up empty cars further forward.
and others kept upou the depot platform
and along the train ready to do whatever
circumstances should render necessary
Conductor Robeson, seeing the situation,
them if thev had money to pay their
fares. They replied they had no money,
but were going with the train all the same,
He told them he could not take them, and
that they must get off. They repeated
their determination to stay with the train,
wheu the situation was at once telegraphed
to headquarters at Portland, aud it was
siwested that the county or U. S. officials
there ouht to do something. Sherirl .Martin
could uot say that he had any authority iu
the matter, especially as the train was
tandiug upon the reservation, aud he has
learned by dear experience and J ml
Deady's legal sag wity that he has no juris
diction within the precincts of Uncle Sjam
domain. Many of the citizens seemid to
treat the situ ition as one ludicrous rather
than serious, and a few zealous ones collect
ed and sent out large quantities o: pro
visions for the men. During the eveuin
warrants were made out charging the prin
ciple o.iei with conspiracy to obstvoct the
mail-, but the U. S. commission held that
no sufficient offense was charged, and re
'used to issue the wa.rants. A tele'rain
from headuuarters ordered the traiu he!
there for the night, an.1, the nest morning
the situation was unchanged, as all the men
had b'ankets and. had been provided with
provisions. Later in the day, however,
about 100 of them left the train aad started
on foot weitwa d along the ine of the rail
road. Tue spokesman of the crowd when

The Aicata Disabled and Dese.ed.
The steamer Areata which sailed from
San Francisco on th i alb, in ballast, for
Coos Bay to load with coa', wheu twelve
nubs off Empire City, the propeller shaft
snapped mid the vessel became unminae
a'de. There were thirty passengers ou
board, and, as the wind was blowin-i a gale
at the time great excii.e-.neut eswitnd. Atter
beating about for two days, unable to get
assistance from shore, tao steamer Walla
Walla hove in Sighi; but, for some reasou
unknown to the passengers, she sailed
away without taking the disabled steamer
iu tow. It is supposed that the captain of
the Walla Walla asked coo high an amount
for salvage. The passengers mauiesced ihe
ereatsst iudiimai.ion. The captain of the
Arcana then provisioned the life boat, aud
accompanied by two sailors started for the
shore. The deaerUou of the captain f.-oun
tbe vessel produced the most deijress'cg
effect on the passengers, who firmly believed
thev bad been left to tneir fate. Ihe I rst
officer, Marshall, in whose charge tbe vessel
had been left, decided to head the steamer
under canvass for San Francisco. Wheu
about twenty miles off the heads he was
picked up by the tug Sea Kiug and safely
takt-n into port. A special to tbe Oreyonian
dated Empire City. Jan. 14, states that the
captain landed at Mack's Arch, seventeen
miles south of Rogue river ou tbe m-iruiug
of tbe 10 h, aud that he and the two sailors
arrived at Empire City on the morning of
Later. It is now stated that Captain
Holt was only a passenger on the steamer
Areata, which he was reported to have
deserted. Captain Holt had important
business at tha mines on the loth, and
went ashore that he might be enaoled to
reach his destination in time, ihe impu
tation of cowardice against the captain is
denied by the passengers.
