SAFETY ON THE WATER.
Ihe Inspector' Department's Claim ot
Nearly 700.000,000 people carried on
American steamers during the last flsoal
rear and only 265 lives lost, of whom
but 96 were passengers, is the promi
nent feature of the new annnal report
Of Supervising Inspector General Dn
mont of steam vessel inspection servloe.
This Is a smaller mortality among the
same number of people, we hove no
Aoubt, than if they had all staid at
borne and wont regularly to bed, to say
nothing of traveling by rail. It proves
again what we have often remarked
that travel by American steamers under
the system of inspection now enforced
is tho safost thnt oould possibly be de
vised. Thirty-five of the 00 passengers
abovo referred to lost their lives in one
disaster the sinking of the tugboat
James D. Nicol off Bandy Hook on a
Sunday in June last, and General Du
mont states that this disaster was solely
duo to the faot that the tug was being
navigated by a person wholly inexpe
It ia further stated in the report that
of the nearly 11,000 boilers inspected
aooiclents causing tho loss of life have
occurred to but 15 of them, defeots in
upward of 700 being detected and reme
died; also that of 100, 274 new life pre
servers examined only 64 were found
doficiont. This statement shows that as
great care is taken in the inspection of
equipments to prevent disaster as in the
rnaobinory employed to run them and
the men who man thorn. In regard to
the latter no less than 88 applicants for
master's and pilot's licenses were re
jected during tho year on account of
oolor blindness, although 1,544 passed
the tosts. All of which goes to show
that the traveling publio and tho stoam
vessel fraternity as well havo every rea
son to repose confidence in tho inspoo
tion system as at present managed.
DANGER IN PERFECTION.
A Prince and 11 Baron Imitated
t'p to tho Killing Point,
It would be difficult to find on record
a stranger banting adventuro than that
experienced by Princo Hohenlohe, son
of the Gorman chnncollor, and Baron
Vietinghoff recently. Thoy went out
together to shoot stags and. agreed to
decoy the nnimals by imitating thoir
call on a special born. The hunters
separated, each accompanied by a game
keeper, and went in different directions.
During the course of tho day thoy ap
proached each other, and each board
tho other's decoy call and believed a
statoly stag was before bim. Imitating
the heavy stops of the animal, thoy
noisily drew still noaror. The imitation
of tbo steps and call was so well done
that they finally arrived within ton
paces of each other without perceiving
Tbo thicket was so dense that they
could not soo through it. Both stood
still, ropoating tho ohallengo from time
to time. Eaoh still firmly belioved that
be wag within a few paces of a real
stag. At last the prince, tired of wait
ing, fired thrico rapidly in tho direction
of the supposed game. The first bullet
glanced off the cartridge belt of Baron
Vietinghoff, tho second struck his watch
and sprang off, the third fell dead from
bis pockotbook well filled with papers.
The young baron, though bit throe
timos, stood nnwonnded. Ho was so con
vinced that not bis fellow hunter, but
a stag, was bofore bim that be attribnt

Systomatio experiments wore mado re

There can be no excuse for a
small yield of milk and butter in
the Northwest this winter, because
there is the finest hay crop that
there has been for years, the larger
portion of which will be put away
in good condition. There were a
few who cut their hay early that
had it injured by the late rains, but
these cases were not plentiful.
Northwest Pacific Farmer.
Indian Agent Breutano, of Grand
Ronde, says that the Indian citizens
in Yamhill and Polk counties will
cost the respective counties at least
$10,000 each per year. The In
dians' lands which are allotted to
them in severalty by the govern
ment are not taxable, hence the
only thing the Indian citizens can
be taxed on is their personal prop
erty. iUcy are uiso name to iue
state for poll tax and road work.
The infirm and pauper Indians who
have become citizens will become
county charges. The government
made a good bargain when it con
ferred the right of citizenship upon
the Indians, but Yamhill and Polk
counties only added a lot of ex
pense, Mr. Brentano says that the
U. S. Supreme Court holds that the
Indians cannot lawfully be given
liquor. Sheridan Sun.
A county superintendent at a re-
ceut session of the county institute
asked every teacher present who
took their local paper to hold up
their hands. Out of 100 present
but 6 responded, at which he ex
pressed great surprise, and said:
"You don't spend $i a year with
these papers, and yet you expect
them to print, free of charge, no
tices of institutes, insert long pro
grammes of same, print reports of
what you say and do on these oc
casions, and thus expect them to
advertise you and your abilities in
your profession, thus assisting you
to climb the ladder, to better posi
tions and better salaries without a
cent's patronage in return. Your
conduct in this matter would lead
me, were I the editor of one of
these papers, to promptly throw
into the waste basket any commu
nication sent me by a society, the
members of which were too proud
or too stingy to take my paper, or
if I inserted it, to demand full ad
vertising rates for every line pub
lished." That superintendent takes
a just view of the matter. But it
is not only the teachers that act
that way, but societies, churches,
etc. They wish to give an enter
tainment of some description in
order to raise money. The iob
printer is paid for posters, draymen
for hauling, the merchant for what
he furnishes, rent is paid for the
hall in fact everybody Is paid but
the newspaper, which does more to
make the affair, whatever it may
be, a success, than all else. And
the people and societies who have
thus received many dollars worth
of free advertising do not even have
the courtesy to thank the editor for
his work, or show in any manner
that they appreciate what the pa
per has done for them. Ex.
A Jap SuicldeH.
Last Tuesday morning one of the
Japa who had been working on the
section at Yaquina got tired of his
earthly career. He therefore pro
ceeded to "shuiTle olT this mortal
coil" by going to the old bunk
house and tying one end of a rope
to hi.i neck and the other to a beam
ana quietly choked himself to
death. When discovered the balls
of his feet were resting on the floor.
'Squire Parker, acting as coroner,
summonsed a jury which investi
gated the death, and returned a ver
dict to the effect that the deceased
came to ni.i ueatu by his own act.
It is supposed that his rash act was
the result .if despondency, caused
by illness and an inability to pay
Crop-Weuther Unlet in.
We gleam the following froai the
weekly weather report:
"The grain crops are in fine con
dition. Spring grain would, of.
course, be benefitted by rain, but
the absence of rain will do no ma
terial injury. Fall sown wheat
and oats headed, and bear promise
of heavy yields. In Jackson county
the grain crop promis well, though
it appears to be poorer in that
county than in any other, this fact
being due to the absence of rain.
Jackson county is a fruit county,
and but little more grain than what
is required for home consumption
Early cherries have been market
ed, and the later cherries are now
coming in. Rain would seriously
injure the cherrv oron at thenrnt
time. The first cherries were . a
heavy crop, and those now coming
in will yield unusually well but
then, cherries always yield heavily
Black and raspberries are ripe.
There is possibly no more prolific
article of food grown in Oregon
than these berries. They always
do well ; no natter what the climatic
conditions may be, the berry crop
is always large. ,
The fruit outlook continues to be
encouraging. The. apple, . pear,
plum and prune trees are loaded
with fruit. The peach trees are
filled, as well. There are fewer
insects this year than formerly, and
where they do appear greater efforts
are made to eradicate the n than
ever before. The fruit crop is be
yond the period of damage from
climatic conditions, hence it can
quite safely be assumed that a suc
cessful fruit season is assured.
Potatoes and vegetation of all kinds
promise very large returns.
The climatic conditions today are
such that for Western Oregon no
rain is probable this week. That
the temperature will increase from
Wednesday, and warm weather pre
vail the remainder ot the week!
Another cool period will most likely
occur from next Sunday.
