A Bad Man with n rutol-
Grant County News
From Rnn Erwav. who carries the mail
between here and Long Creek, we learn of a
serious shooting scrape that occurred in tht
hitter nurc ou Tuesday morning, Jan. 31st,
in which P. J. Conuolly, editor of the
Eiicle, MUr known as "Pete, the Poet,"
was shot twice by a would-be "bad man,"
one shot taking effect iu tho groiu and the
other in the aim,
The shootist was Tom Williams, whom the
shootee hniT spoken of iu bis paper as a
'hard rooster, "pistol man, ''a sloyger,
etc., and nfter shooting the shootee he arm
ed himself with a Winchester rifle nnd fired
several shots nt Ed. Allen, who was acting
as coustuble, aud endeavoring to arrest him,
one shot grazing Alleu's foot aud killing the
lioiso which be rode. Williams finally gave
himself up, and was being closely guarded
pending tho result of Connolly's wounds.
The trouble grew out of an article pub
lished in the paper that morning charging
Williams with immoral conduct, which, if
true, (and an editor will seldom take the
responsibility upon himself to publish nn
article unless it has some semblance of
truth) would ostracize him from the society
of respectable people forever. Williams
was charged with snying that the women of
Long Creek, iu general, were no better than
prostitutes, and that Long Creek was oue
Went keirse of ill-fame. Such assertions as
these, if not taken up and resented by (be
husbands, fathers and brothers of the ladies
if Lonu Creek, would show them to be ver
itable cowards, and Peter gave this fiend
this mostcr in human form such a "raking
down" in his paper that, smarting under the
well-deserved .chastisement, he demanded
"blood," and while Peter was delivering his
paper to its siilmuiiuvrs, just because he had
dared to voice the sentiments of a portion of
thd commnnity, he must bo attacked in a
cewardly manner nnd shot down like a dog.
Btoceyards. St. Helens Mist: The ab
sence of stockyards at Portland is a serious
ibstncle to tlie farmer. A lew wholesale
butchers with plenty of capital have fixed
(he price they will pay for bseves, and if the
producer will not accept it he may go to
Jericho with them, as he cannot soli to re
tail butchers, because they dure not buy. If
the retail batcher buys a few head ef beef
irom ins producer direct, ine uregoa yity
Courier, that must have menus of snowing,
says, he is informed by the wholesale beef
ring that ll he does so again ne cannot buy
any more from them. As he is financially
unable to buy buuehgrass cattle by the car
load in the winter time, when fat cattle are
scarce in the Willamette valley, he submits
to the tyranny of capital. The beef ring
fixes the price the retailer must pay so high
that he cannot make over a bare living, even
when charging consumers eighteen cents a
pound for porterhouse steak and thirteen
cents for roast. The citizens of Portland
are systematically robbed by tht beef monop
oly, and as long as there is not a stockyard
to compett with it, so long the ring will rob
the fanner aud rob tho eator of meat.
New things in surgery should always get the
benefit of newspaper circulation. A switch
man at Joliat was run over by an ennine and
had his right arm crushed above the elbow.
The surgeon concluded to try an experiment,
aud proceeded to remove the comminuted
bone, which represented about four inches of
the original, and bringing the two ends to
gether, fastened them with silver wire, and
waited. The bone knit, the crushed muscles
healed, and the patient is at work again with
a serviceable arm four inches shorter than it
was before, but immensely better than none at
all. Conservative surgery like this would save
many an arm and leg that is now whacked off
like It would grow again.

A correspondent of the Plaindenlcr of
Feby. !th gives some facts regnrdina the
early history of Lane county nnd tho reason
for the miming of Butte Disappointment
on the Middle Folk twenty miles abovo
Engene, as follows:
In the spring of in in a party of hliimatu
Indians passed down through the Willam
ette Valley and killed some cattle belonging
to settlers that were living in the vicinity of
Eugene City, and passed on and mnde trou
ble further down, nnd, on tho way back,
killed other cattle in the vicinity of Eugens
City, and they were followed by F.lijih'ltris
tow and Eliss Briggs of;Pleiisimt Hill, nnd
Cornelius Hills of the Middle Fork.: 'The
sbove party followed the Indians as "fur as
tall creek, and muling tne creek very lull
and ranidiaud the brush very thick, and be
ing ouly three of them aud knowing there
were twenty-four Indians they deemed it
imprudent to attempt to cross nnd so turned
tack. In the meantime, Eugene F. Skinner,
Benjamin Davis nnd Henry Noble went
down to the settlement;! on Long Tom and
Muddv and raised n number of men and
picked up what could be spared from home
on their way tin, so that when we got alto
gether nt Mr. Hills' residence ou the Mid
dle Fork there were seventeen of ns, the
writer being among the number. We took
the Indian trail aud followed it to and across
Fall creek and nn the river some miles
above. It being the month of April, and
the sun shining very bright nnd warm, the
snow was melting ver) fast, aud when we got
to where the Indians had crossed the river
some days in advance, we found it ton high
to ford, and so were compelled to rum back.
We supposed at that time, the Indians could
not get through the monutaius, on account
of the snow nnd we could hem them iu. On
our way back we were ridiug leisurely along
and got pretty well up the side of a very
promiuont but te or mountain and some one
proposed tnat we go to tne top aud take a
view of tht surrounding country, which we
did. When we got to the top it was getting
pretty well along toward evening and grass
nnd water being abundant the proposition
was made that we camp there for the night
which we did. The next morning the sun
came up as bright nnd clear bb it is wont to
do, in clear weather in the spring in Oregon,
aud nnfolded a lovely scene. Not a thing
to mar the beauties of nature; just mist
enough on tht river to make eveiy other
object in view more bright; and some one of
the company, I do not remember who, pro
posed that said butte be named, and a vote
of the company agreed to leave the naming
of it to Mr. E. Bristow he being the old
est mun in the company. Mr. Bristow said
thut he and two others iiad, been disappoint
ed a fsw days previous near tho foot of it,
and that we had beon disappointed again a
few miles above it, he would call it "Butte
Disappointment," and that is tho way said
butte came by its name. In the company
were E. Bristow, Aaron Riclmrdsou, his son,
and son-ln law, Rowland llinton, a Mr,
Reeves, Henry Noble, John Aiken, Benja
min Davis, Lewis Coryell, Cornelius Hills
and Thos. Smith, I do not remember now
who the others wore,
IIuw Air Brakes nre Used.
"I'll bet not one in a hundred of the peo
ple who travel on railroad trains understand
how ths pressure of air is used to apply the
brakes to a train," said a railroad man.
"When the air brake was first invented the
air was turned into the cylinder nnder each
car when the car was to be stopped, and the ,
pressure was exerted to force the brakes up
against the wheels. But at the present day
the brakes are held against the wheels by
springs, and the air is turned into the cylin
ders to push the brakes away from the
wheels as long as the train is in motion.
When it is desired to step the train, the air
is let out, and then the springs apply the
breaks aud stop the train. This last meth
od of using the air pressure hns great ad
vantages over the old way on the score of
safety. Whenever an accident happens to a
train, one of the first efi'ects it is apt to have
ii to rupture tho air pipes leading from the
engine to the cyliudor under the cars; and
that of itself stops the train instantly. It is
very important for everybody to understand
that this matter, because a child five years
old can stop a train in thirty seconds, from
any car in the train, if he simply under
stands bow. Yoa will see, if you look for it,
that there is a sort of rope projecting from
the toilet room of every car. That connects
with the air nines nnder the train. If von
catch hold of it and give it a little jerk it
will stop tne whole train tiefore it has gone
two hundred yards."
Sheriff Groves, of Polk county went to
Salem last Saturday and took to Dallas a
prisoner named Benuewitz, who was con
fined there, the court having ordered him to
take to Dullas all Polk county prisoners in
the Marion county tail. This would Inclndo .
Landretb, the murderer, but Mr. Graves pos
itively refuses to obey the instructions of
the court. He was blamed severely for al
lowing Kelty to be lynched, whan the county
court had refused to allow him to be re
moved to Salem nnd he doesn't propose to
incur any more risks.
