premo couit in tho case of D. W. Apple
gale, resp.ndent, vs. 15. F. DoacII, ap
pellant, was ri.dered in the county

decision in the celebrated case in which
B. F. Dowell brought suit against the
heirs of Jesse Appleate, in regard to the
title to certain lands in this county, and
the decision is favorable to Dowell. The
decision was rendered nearly a year ago,
and has jtut worked its way through the
red tape department of the government.
A Queer Find.
J. Bitzsr, the well known butcher, tells i
cfJScding some strange things in a cow's
stomach tho other day. Among the
things found were eeveral staples and a
number of ihingle nails, besides a small
gold chain. The latter evidently be
longed to a breast pin, and what has be
come of the pin itself is unknown. Mr.
Bitzer purchased the cow from Frank
Benton, but the latter denies that he has
been in the habit of feeding his eow on
cold chains, nails and the like. As yet
the owner of the chain has not been

Greedy U. S. Officials.
Tbe United States Court officials at
Portland were knocked off tbe perch one
day recently by a couple of unassuming
citizens of Klamath land. The Portland
officials have been standing in together,
and have endeayored to "hog" ail the
fees in cases brought in that court. Con
sequently whenevera charge was brought
against any individual in the state an
officer would be sent from Portland to
bring in the offender. At Klamath Falls
recently a man named Scott ivu arrested
for selling liquor to an Indian. lie was
examined before U. S. Commissioner I
Parrisb, who held him to appear before
the next U. S. grand jury, and appointed
Bailey Tiffany and Lon Kingsley to con

gentlemen performed their duties, an d

He Passes Away Suddenly at
Home Tuesday Evening.
Another pioneer and distinguished citi
zen of Oregon has passed to tho beyond.
Stephen F. Chadwick died suddenly
Tuesday evening at Salem. Ho had par
taken of his supper and on arising from
tho table, he dropped unconscious and
soon passed into the stream of death to
nhichall mortality are tending.
Mr. Chadwick was born in Middleton,
Connecticut, on the 23th of December,
1S23. He was of English and Scotch
origin, and iS:essed the genial traits and
chiracteristics of his ancestry. In 1S53
he was married to Miss Jane Smith, a
daughter of Judge Richard Smith of Vir
ginia. S. F. Chnduick was a Scottish
Rite Mason of the 23d degree, has held
the positiou of grand master of the Grand
Lodge of Masons of Oregon, and has been
chairman of thu committee on foreign
vorresponder.ee for more than a quarter
of a century. In ISOI and '03 he was
presidential elector on the democratic
ticket, and in the latter year carried the
electoral vote of Oregon to Washington.
lie was the first judge of Douglas county,
and in 1S7C being at the time secretary
of state he assumed the executive chnir
of Oreg'u on the election of L. F. Grover
to the otlici of U. S. senator. At the
laying of tho corner stone of the state
capitol at Salem, Le delivered an address
that was highly commended by all who
heard the truly eloquent speech. At the
reunion of pioneers at Salem in 1374 he
was the principal speaker, and ho stirred
the hearts of the old pioneers to the
highest pitch of enthusiasm. Thus, ono
by one the old pioneers of Oregon are
passing away, and in the death of Stephen
F. CUadwick, they have lest fiorn their
ranks a trne and worthy member, one
who has passed through the hardships
and trials of pioneer life, one whom
they most highly esteemed, and one for
whoi' the survivors most deeply mourn
his loss. His name is written 0cn the
hearts of the people, and will brighten
the pages of thtir history His public
career was long, brilliant and useful, his
faith in the light never faltered, and his
i devotion to trnth and justice never wav
ered or ceased. In social life he was a
man genial and of kindly disposition,
j and had a host of warmest friends. He
was a loyal citizen, aud would cheerfully
make any iersonal sacrifice to advance
tho interests of his adopted state. He
was filled with genuine charity, and ex
emplified in word and act that great
right of religions freedom which is the
freedom of every American citizen.

of Oregon audits needs; that he has

Tho entire republican phal.iu.: of the

As yet but little legislation has aeen
attempted. A few resolutions havo been I
passed, while the introduction of bilb,
memorials, etc., is scarcely under fnll
headway as yet. Douglas county is well
represented, and her representatives are
considered to be tight up close to the
band wagon. When a Multnomah rep
resentative attempted to railroad through
the usual resolution providing for a num
ber of newspapers for each member and
officer, Representative Sehlbrede im
mediately arose and protested against
the resolution, his protest bavin; tho
ctlect of postponing the matter indefinitly.
However, the matter was again consid
ered yesterday, with the result that each
member will be allowed three papers.
Tuesday Senator Allev of Line county
introduced a concurrent resolution pro
viding for a committee of two senators
and three representatiues to investigate
the Soldiers Home at Roseburg. TIip
resolution was adopted.
All indications point to the fact fiat

INCIDENTS OF SILVER LAKE FIRE.
A Few That Will Prove Interesting
To Our Readers.
The Lakoview Examiner publishes tho
following incident of the Silver Lake
holocaust that occurred Christmas eve:
"It is known that three men, who had
made their cecapc, went into tho burn
ing building to save f-omo relations and
were never seen again. Clay Martin
camo out with T. J. Labrie's child in Ids
arms, but seeing his wife was not there,
he started back. Several people tried to
to keep him out, but he pushed in, with
the child 6till in his arms, saying " I am
going to save -Becky'," his wife. He
and tho child were not seen strain.
Wood Hurst, familiarly known as "Sen
ator" Hurst, who had recently been mar
ried, could not find his wife outside, and,
notwithstanding the many cn.treatiea to
stay out, he went back to save her. He
was lost. Frank R0.53 did tho Fame.
His mother was inside and ho wanted to
save her. Without a doubt each one of
those men blocked the narrow passage
and prevented others from getting out.
"Mrs Dr. Onsley and her sister, Mr?.
Snelling, when last seen were kneeling
side by side, praying fervently, as if they
knew it was their last moment on earth.
Others were seen to be running aim
lessly about, eeemingly daxed, and might
have escaped had they not lost their
presence of mind. Daring the heat of
the fire the front doors of the i-tore were
broken iu and' Co; West and others
tried, with a large !eice of wood, to punch
holes up through the floor, thinking
some might escape thut way, but with
"Not a breath ot air stirred, and the
lljines and smoke curled up through the
rod in one large cJuniu, high into the
air, which could lseen for miles around.
None of the buildings close at hand were
burned, and the ashes of a single huild
iug mark the spot of the most terrible
scene ever witnossed on this side of the
globe, according to the population. It
will long be remembered as one of the
worst happenings in the annalstrf history,
and will never be forgotten bv those who
escaped thu terrible death."
Hon. I). S. K. Buick ti-is week re
ceived a letter from Silver Lake, giving
3ti!i further particulars of the dreadful
disaster. The letter ftaies that, in ad
dition to thc number who lost their lives
in the terrible fire, there were 42 persons
who were more or less injured. The
large number injuied is much of a sur
prise, for all reports heretofore have
placed the number at less than 20. Up
to the 0th inst. none of the injured had
died, and all Wire imgroviug, although
in several instances improvement is very
slow. It is now expected that all of the
injured will recover.

of tho read. The Tidings did not get any
information from Mr- Agler in regard to
the result of the grievance committee's
meeting bnt it teams from reliable
sources that the conference was :i failure
so far as any concessijns being given the
employes is concerned. Supt. Filmoro
gaye the representatives respectful hear
ing but told them that their differences
would have to bo settled through the di
vision superintendents and that they
should go home and take that course.
The boys cn this northern division of tho
S. P. had no grievances of their own, for
their wage3 were not affected by the new
regulations that went into effect on the
first of the year. The engineers' brother
hood ha3 also been in session at 'Frisco
tha past week.

Among- the wonders of the World's Columbian Fair the
graudest was the exhibit of American products. The Ex
hibition was, in this respect, an object lesson of the grandeur
and glory of the Republic. Among the exhibits from the
United States no article of its class stood so high as
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder.
The Chief Chemist of the Agricultural Department at
Washington, backed by an intelligent jury at the Exposition,
found it strongest in leavening power, peerless in its purity
and beyond comparison in uniform excellence. f

The award is a matter of official record..
Nothing could settle so decisively the fmmeasureable
superiority of Dr. Price's over all other powders as the.

LOW FARES TO PORTLAND.
Extremely Low Rate
The State Horticultural Society, In
conjunction with the Citizens' committee
at Portlanxl, have secured very low ex
cursion rrtes from the Southern Pacific,
and people who are interested in hoiti
culture, or nvho wish to spend a few days
in Portland .should take advantage of this
opportunity. The round trip will be lesa
than the regrilar fare one way, so that
all can afford io go. To secure the low
rate, sixty full Jare tickets must he sold.
The fare for the- round trip, on thi3 con
dition, from Kiddles, Myrtle Creek
Roseburg, Oakland, Drain and all inter
mediate stations, ivill be ?5.50. All who
want to go must deposit thus amount
with tho First Naticca! Bank of Rose
burg, whichuWill give a receipt for the
money, and when eizty tickets have
been paid for, the bank will issue tho
tickets and take up the receipts. If sixty
tickets cannot 'ne sold, the money will be
refunded and the railway agents will sell
tbe regular excursion tickefs at the rate
of one and one-third fire.i for the round
trip to sucli as desire to go. The Ameri
can I'omolugieal Society is the leading
institution of this kind in this country
and it is expected that the members will
repeat the Sacramento programme,
where they are in session this week, at
Portland. Tho Northwestern Fruit
Growers' Association, which met last
year at Spokane, Wash., will meet at
Portland next week, and this, with the
Oregon Horticultural society, will make
this the most important and interesting
convention of horticnlcurists ever held
on this coast. Every progressive fruit
grower in Gregoa snould make it a point
to attend. Aside from this feature of
the excursion is the important fact that
the time limit on these low rates will ba
ample to giye all who haye any business
or social interests in northern Oregon
plenty of time to attend to the same.
Those who have business in Salem can.
riturn there from Portland, spend a day
or more and then rejoin th excursion at
Portland, wiihont paying much if any
more for fares than they would have to
pay for the ritte to Portland alone. Aa
the lime is short, it will be necessary to
make deposit of the fare at the bank at
once, so that the details can be quickly
Notice is hereby given that all persons
hunting upon, removing wood from, or
otherwise trespassing upon the "Bushey
estate," will be proe:nted.
