A PIONEER'S EXPERIENCE.
B," in the Journal at Salem, fur
nishes the following interesting article:
There appears to be a disposition
by parties who have recently passed up
and dqwn through the state since the
railroad has ' suspended operations, to
think they hve had wonderful" exper
iences, and the likes were never seen
before. Old Oregonians have seen
equal- experiences, and looked tipon
them as an every day occurrence. An
experience or exploit comes to the
writer's memory which he believes was
never in print. . Yreka thirty or thirty-
five years ago was a prosperous mining
town, and In 1857 a telegraph line was
first established there. A gentleman
from Oregon who disposed of consid
erable interests in Yreka for checks on
San Francisco was horrified one morn
ing, a few days after the transaction,
to read in the morning paper that the
bank, against which most his checks
were drawn, had failed and he was
left nearly bankrupt A thought
struck him and seeing that the Oregon
steamer' left San Francisco that morn
ing for Portland he resolved to beat it
there if possible.
He drew his checks, bought a horse
and began the race. The setting sun
found him on Rogue river, where he
changed horses and by morning he
emerged from the big canyon, where;
he again changed horses and again at
Rosebnrg at noon he "made another
trade. Night found him in the Ca!i
pooia mountains. He was frequently
detained in making his "horse-trades,"
but the thiid morning found him in
sight of Portland and he siw that the,
dreade l steamer had not an lved. He '
put up his horse Stephen's on the
east side of the river and crossed over
on the horse ferry. As the bank was
not yet opened he walked impatiently.
up and down the street, fearing every!
moment the cannon, which announced1
the Steamers' arrival, would send forth
thegnews. A few minutes appeared as '
many hours. Finally the doors of the
bank swung open and he went in and
drew his coin. He again crossed the
river and was just lying down when
the vibrations of the cannon rattled current experience of neivous people who

farmer living near Wheatland, Polk
county, was foully murdered Sunday
morning last. Shewas fonnd lying on
