Three men from the Oregon railroad
arrived in town last Sunday, one of
whom, who had been drinking Sunday

slight, although somewhat painful be
getting in among the muscles above
the hip joint. One of the same party
also had a set to with ono of our citi

coming to town. They are evidently
hard working railroad hands, and
seemed to have plenty of money to pay
their way. The name of the man shot

About two o clock on New Year's
morning the citizens of Jacksonville
were startlett by the alarm of tire,
getting its start in the New Slate sa
loon anil homing about half of the
block on Californ.a "street from the
corner of Third. Those who seen it
first say that the flimes first broke
out in Noland t!5 Ulricl's saloon oppo
site the secondwindow from the front
and only a short distance from where
the stove fet. In less time than it
takes to tell it the whole building was
in flames so that the lodgers in the
hotel in the same building had barely
time to save their lives without trving
lo Save.tny of the property. From
there it went on and took the frame
building owned by J S. Howard when
it jumped over and set afire P. J. Ry.
an's building occupied by Baruch Fish
er burning that to the ground nlso.
By this time the fire got so hot that
no one could pet near enough to dn
effective work when Max Mullei'm
post-office brick got afire on the
inside and it also succumbed to the
flames. The next building on the
west was John' Miller's brick where
some good work w-as done and the fire
cheefced'from going any farther. The
buildings on the-opposite side of Cli
fornia street a?it J.o"ues! suloonon th
other corner were Tiadly scorched but
escaped with slight damages to the
fronts. Beekman's express office.
Jones' saloon and the small wooden
buildings in the rear of tho last men
tioned pi a e were afire several times
but by good steady work on the part
of the firemen and some of our citizens
the buildings were saved. The ladies
of ths town also did some effective
work in saving goods and a number of
them stood in line with the bucket,
brigade and worked as hard as any one
else. The fire engine was brought out
in good time and first run down to
Savage's well, hut by the neglect of
some one the strainer on the suction
hose was not in place and it was not
long before the engine was disabled by
drawing up gravel into the valves.
This caused quite a delay while the
fire went right along and it is probably
the reaon of its nut being stopped
when it reached the postoffice brick.
This building burnt on the inside for
several hours beforo the fl lines broke
through the roof but as nothing could
be done it was thought best to keep the
doors closed and thereby confine it to
that building aiono. The origin of the
fire is still a mystery as the saloon was
closed about ten o'clock P. M. when
there was very little fire in the stove
and the lamps were put out. The
Marshall and other parties passed the
sab on only a few'moments before when
ixo light or sign of fire cjuld be noticed.

Mr. aud Mrs. John Neilon, of Etna,
while at work in the railroad tunnel at
south side of bikiyou mountain, near
the California boundary. He was at
work tamping the powder for a blast,
with a ' Icl ory stick, when the powder
exploded, driving the stick through
his body, at the ride, and coming out
just above his kidneys near the back.
Two doctors were summoned immedi
ately from Ashland, who removed
pieces of the siick, and it is believed
the yo ng man iR falally injured, with
very jioor "hances of recovirj. It
was r lorted that another man had all
bub ono finger of hi i left hand blown
off, but the man working below him
and others close around sustained no
injury whatever. Johnnie was at
work on a scaffold, where several oth
ers were also at work above nnd be
low, tamping, and it was a miraculoas
escape of all from being killed in such
cli.se quarters. J he young mans
mother, accompanied by her oldest h hi
Andrew, and Dr. Nuttine. passed
through town Sunday from Etna, for
the tunnel, to render every assistance
possible towards the recovery of the
young man, who was very popular
among all tho woikman and managers
of the O. C. R. R. Co., and alo in
this coun y, everybody expressing sin
cere sorrow for his misfortune. Hi
mother was the recipient from him of a
