the people it will prove a burden. The
Solon who drafted and originated the
bill probably had the interests of liti

local col u limn it will be found that the
fees collected in Lane county since, the
bill became a law, February 19, and paid
into the county treasury, amount to

one mouth and twelve days the county
paid tli one officer $350, and received in
return but $90 80, leaving a deficit of
$259 20, which must be paid out
of the county treasury. And at this
rate the county must increase the
rate of taxation to provide at least

From Matiui, neur the foot of
Mount Hakcr, it Jit b urned that the
mountain in in an active suite, and the
people in that part of the country are
apprehensive that the lava will How in
great quantities. A dense volume of
smoke is coining from the mountain
while hot cinders, ashes, and lava are
Wing thrown from its crnter. At
night it jxjurs forth streams f fire and
rock, which illuminates the ktmosphere
for miles and mile.', striking terror to
the inhabitant and euu-slnj; the people
to le greatly alarmed for their homes
and live. As yet the tlmv uf laa is
not sufficient to indicate any (lunger.
The eruption is said to be a magnificent
sight from the Upper Somas, distant
about AO mil", and which is admirably
located to oWrve this wonderful he-
nomenou, as the mountain looms up to
the height of 12,000 feet, and is

At 8:15 o'clock last night, says the
Standard of Tuesday, while the steam
ship Oregon was coming up from As
toria to this city, she ran into and sunk
tho river steamboat Clatsop Chief and
a barge is tow, drowning four men. The
particulars of the accident learned on
me arrival oi tne uregon tins morning
at 12:30 o'clock and given to the press
reporters were as follows: The Clatsop
Chief, in command of Captain William
Williams, and having an empty barge
in tow, was going down the river. Just
1 i'tl r -
auove mow jsar the urewn was
sighted, and Captain Williams headed
his boat to pass the steamship on the
port side. He had hardly changed his
course when the Oregon gavo one whis
tle, signaling to the Clatsop Chief to
change her course. On the whistle be
ing blown Captain Williams 'rung the
signal to the engineer below to reverse
the engine and back, and while no do
ing the Oregon bore directly down,
striking the barge with a fearful crush
cutting it in two, about midship, then
cutting the Chief in two. Jioth veu !
immediately sank. On the two boats
there were thirteen men, ninuof whom
were saved, the remainder perishing in
tho waters. The men who wein lost
are, William Ammond, the bos of the
scow, John Sonny, a 'deckhand, An
drew JCaye, a fireman of the Chief, nnd
one other deckhund, whose name could
not be learned. Those saved are
Capt Williams, of the Clatsop Chief,
W. S. Holmes, tho engineer and a Chi
naman employed as cook. The names
of theother six were not known to Capt
Williams. As soon as possible boats
ere lowered from the Oregon manned
by tho crew tJ save the men rruggling
in the water. Several small lats
were also put out from the shore by
those who had seen the collision, and
but for the prompt assistance hardly
one of the inim-riled men would have
been saved. The Clatsop Chief was
owned by Captain F. I). Jones, of this
city. Owing to tho late hour the news
was received, it was impossible to ob
