A seneral banking business tranacted, and customers given every
accommodation consistent with safe and conservative banking.
cv n frm nin to twelve and from one to three.
Jos. Owens, who formerly worked in
the Aphlaud mine, but who lateiy has
been keeping a saloon at Hornbrook, is
dead as the result of wounds inflicted by
Wm. Ennis, with a revolver, last Fri
day, in the Siskiyou county town. The
killing seems to have been wanton ana
unprovoked. Funis, who will now he
charred with murder, formcily ran a
saloon at Klamathon ; was burned out at
the time of the big fire at that town and
then moved to Hornbrook where he
etartei again in the Fame business.
His saloon was above the town and lo
cated on the bank very close to thb bed
of the creek. The high water, caused
by the storm of last week, carried his
building and stock of goods down in the
flood, and Ennis immediately proceeded
to drown his troubles in drink. He and
the murdered man had been friends,
but in his maudlin condition, the former
imagined that C wen had expressed sat
isfaction at the work of the flood in car-
rvinff awav his property. He went to
Owens' place and engaged in a quarrel
with him at once. The latter told him
if he would put away his gun he would
fight him, and both men, it is said,
palled off their coats. Ennis, however.
retained possession of his gun. The
men closed in and Owen had Ennis
down, when the latter began shooting.
Owens resided at Gold Hill for about
ten vears, mining and keeping a hotel
and was liked bv everv one. He mar
ried Miss Lucy Wyatt of Sams Valley,
nd thev have one child. His aire was
about So years. Tiding.
REMAINED FOUR HOURS IN WATER
Two Men Have Narrow Escape From Drowning in the

Perm-e, Dr., Feb. 2. The recent flood
nearly cost two Oklahoma men not ac
quainted willi the turbulent waters of
the I'mpqna their lives. These men
Mr. Rirdine and Mr. Wilson attempted
to cross the rmpqua in a small skiff
near this place.
The swift current carried them some
200 yards from where they started dow n
the stream, when the boat was capsized
near the middle of the river. They both
sneeecdel in getting hold of a small
alder tree, w here they hel 1 on for four
hours with their heads barely alwve the
cold, swift ami rapidly rising water.
They were finally rescue! from their
perilous position by Frank Fate, Ruftis
McKinney, Claude McCulley and Frank
Tripp, not however until the four men
were almost entirely exhausted in their
untiring efforts with boats and ropes to
get the . two helpless men to Ehore.
They were not reworded for their efforts
till 8 o'clock at niirht. when the rescue
was finally aecoinplir-hed.

Foiitlasp, Kb. 2. The hrst step in
the reorganization of the National Guard
of the state, made necessary by the
passage of the Pick bill in congress, w as
taken on Saturday w hen Brigadier Gen
eral Charles F. Bee he's resignation as
commander of the Oregon brigade was
accepted, lie will have no successor.
and so the brigade staff will be tlisban.l-
ed at ( nee. The single regiment ot toe
Guard in the state after this will con
sist of 12 companies, and the colonel
commanding will be the ranking officer.
This means that Geo. O. Yoran, of
Eugene, will be colonel cl the new- regi
ment as he ranks Col. Everett of the
Third regiment. It will also probably
mean only one company f"r Eugene in
stead of two as at present.

Allies insist on Separate Treatment
of Claims, and Will Continue
Lo.snov, Feb. 3. Reuter's Telegram
Company savs that it is officially in
formed that the altitude of the allies
regarding the uncalled priority claims
against Venezuela has been misinter
preted, thus increasing the complica
tions. It is explained that thi allies do
not insist on the ptecedence of their
claims over others, hut insist that they
shall be regarded an separate, to Ik: dealt
with direct lx-iween themselves and
Venezuela. Until a specific arrange
ment is made for tlm satisfaction of
their claims they are determined to con
tinue the blockade.
It is further stated that the alliej do
not bind Venezuela regarding the sum
to Ih; periodically paid or the time in
which the debt must be pal 1 on. It is
added that Ihirf is renewed evidence that
Venezuela is endeavoring to complicate
matters by playing off the interests of
one pocrcr against another, and that
such a course must be frustrated in the
interests of all the creditors. They con
sequently hope that Venezuela's at
tempts in this direction "will not re
ceive support or connivance from any
Southern Oregon's Candidate.
