Lebanon has hocn hiving a siege with
the license question, says Iho Albany Dem
ocrat. Under the old ordinance a petition
signed by tne citi.ens ol tne city, contain
ing more names than any remonstrauce waa
necessary. It was ascertained that tho re-
moustrauco for a license be mg applied tor
would be decidedly in tho majoiity, and
Lebanon would be without a saloon. The
city counoil gave a Hank movement Tuesday
night by repealing the ordinance so far as
the petition was concerned so that it is on
ly to apply to tho council wit buu I a peti
tion. As it is a license council this will
result in the continuation of the saloons,
Theromonslrators, it is said, will contest
the action of tho council. Intense feeling
prevails over the matter.
Commencing on Monday next it will

1 Centralia, Washington, is at present
the center of a mining excitement that
bids fair to emml that of any of the
noted mining camps of California,
jt oiorndo or .Nevada, in their inosi
I imlniv davs. The new mining district
is known us Ranicr, and the camp is
situated on a stream which has iseti
' christened Mineral creek. Already
sonic sixty claims have liccn taken up,

that the discovcrv of minerals was

The Hud was made last August by
two miners, named Davis and Kvaiis.
These men had la-en prospecting in the
spuix of the Cascades for several
months and were following up Mineral
creek when they made their Hud.
Thev continued their search, ami it
was not until they had made some half
do.cu locations that they brought in
word ami placed their locations on
record at the county scat. At first
they refused to ill'vulge the exact
locality of these mines, and owing to'
the almost Inaccessible nature of the
country, it was some time la'fore any
others 'discovered the mineral ladt. but
since then numerous trails have Ishmi
cut through the tiiuler and n number
of other claims linve larli staked out.
A few days since Charles Erickson.
vice-president of the First National
bank, returned from the mines, bring
ing with hiiiia number of line sccl
mens. He pronounces the entire
country along the forks of Mineral
creek to be rich in valuable minerals,
which only needs to become known to
cause the most intense mining excite
ment. THEY WORK TIN UOUSF.TS.
How Saloon Waiter F.VRtled a Sun
day Liquor Law.
M. .1. Fierris, of San Francisco, told
of a peculiar method by which a liquor
Icalcrot .Montreal evaded the Miiuiay
closing law of that country. "1 hu-
M'tti'd lo stop in Montreal over Miiuiay
a few weeks ago," he said. '"In the l-
ternoon 1 strolled down one or the
main streets of the town, and noticed
a commotion in lront ot a saioon.
l'Mn inquiry I found that it police
man hud broken into the place, and
had captured several connected with
the concern in the act of selling liquor.
The sale was conducted in a peculiar
wav. The attendants nil wore tin cor
sets which were tilled with whisky,
and to these small reservoirs a rubber
tula' was attached. When all the eon-
diiions were lavoiiuue tne auentiaiii
would hand his customer the end of
the hose, from which a drink of whis
ky would lie obtained. When the po
li'ccinan broke Into the place he found
one of the attendants, with his coat un
buttoned, and in this way the tin cor
set was revealed."
Evidently a "Sucker."
J A. Ellzer, a business man of Ogden,
Arkansas, has written County Cleik Wal
ker, concerning a well known fraudras fol
lows: "Dkab Sin: I was directed by the ofll
cors of the State of Washington to corres
pond with the oflloials of your county con
cerning one Chas. P. Reed, who was in the
custody of your county awaiting trial for
an olluuse committed in your state. Has
be ever beeu tried Was he the agent of
the Michigan & Maine Lumber and Mill
ing Co? Where is the company's post of
tiue? Said company was incorporated by
the Stale of Washluglon.
"P. 8. Said Reed by misrepresentation
of facts and false pretenses has robbed me
of over 'JIK."
Mr. Ellzer has soveral sympathizers in
Eugene, who were robbed by the same in
dividual, but it is not likely they could give
him any information concerning the post
office address of the company.
I'ninpitie and Melissa.
Pendleton East Oregonian.
Our worthy oonnty clerk and county
judge unknowingly aided and assisted a
species of immorality aud bigamy in our
midst lately. Umapine, an Indian brave,
and Melixsa, a buxom squaw, with tbe aid
of au interpreter, secured a marriage li
ce me from the olerk, and "Cap." to all in
tents aud purposes joined them la holy
wedlock iu Boston man's most approved
It has since been learned that Umapine
has two or three helpmeets at his reserva
tion chateau, aud that Melissa has aUo k
lord and master living around bere to
whom she was wedded by a clergyman. It
is supposed that according to Indian logic,
divorces were unnecessary to further their
late marriage, provided it was done up in
shape by the High Tyee of the County
Bkookmu Honse (court bouse).
Melissa always had a pining lor Umapine,
anyhow. We hope you-may-pine no Ion

A Dastardly Deed.
Tha Oregon City Enterprise sayu that
Richard Wright, a Macksburg farmer, bad
nineteen bead of fat sheep lhat be was
about to take to market last week, In fact
he bad sent for tbe dealers to buy tha sul
mats and the day before hi was expected,
Mr. Wright went to tbe pasture where tbe
abeep were confined to look at them and
sea that they wen all right. He then found
that ten of the sheep bad been reoently
killed and upon olose examination it was
discovered that they had been shot with
rifle He got a neighbor, I'hil Graves, to
sssist him in examining the carcasses and
in each case tbe sheep was found to be shot.
Tbe next morning Mr. Wright repaired to
the spot to save the pelts when he discov
ered tbe skins had all been taken. A day or
two later Mr Graves found thrceof his sheep
slain ai Mr. Wright's bad been. The work
must bava been deliberately done, by some
miscreant who was suflluieutly familiar
with the premises to escape detection.
