E. 6. Tongue, a prominent attor

was called to se8 C. H. Williams,
who is still very sick. '
Jack Cahill started to go to
Spokane several days ago to'see his
sister and to take treatment at the
hospital there, but when he got to
Albany he became so ill that it was
necessary for him to stop oh! there
for medical treatment. He is htill
there dangerously ill and has sent
far his sister to be with him. For
a while be was not expected to live,
but at last reports ba was some
Peter Meads, who ence owned the
place at Nor tons now owned by
Harry Porter, is dead. He died at
Walla Walla on Monday. Peter
Meads, with his faimly homestead
ed the place at Nortons in the
Spring of 1867 and lived on it for
about twenty years, when he sold
out and moved to Walla Walla,
where he lived to the time of his
death. His wife died about three
years ago. Peter Mends was well
known by all the early settlers of
Yaquina Bay. ' He used to team
over the roada hauling oysters and
clams from Elk City to Corvallis
This was done in the worst Dart of
Winter and in the muddiest kind
of reads,.. Peter never -stopped, for
rain. ; nor jnud. He hia t nice
home at TjValla" Walla and enjoyed
Iifa'hr his latter days. He wes ' 84
yean old. His wife was a sister to
Dr. Carter of this place. So one
by one the pioneers are passing
away Jeaving behind them a name
of lienor, courage, perseverance and
hospitality..,. May they rest la
' The city council is wrestling with
the problem of paying off the city
warrants that were issued in excess
of the legal limit. The city char
ter provides no debts can be in
curred above $10,000, but notwith
standing this limit, the debt ' has
been increased $18,000 above the
legal fioait. Many of these war
rants were bought up by private
parties at ten per cent discount.
The plain is to bond the city for
$20,000 and take Up these warrants
and let the city pay interest on a
long time loan at 6 per cent. In
twenty ye ars.the life of the bonds,
the interest would be more than
the principle. This is one way.
Others say let the persons who hold
the warrants take their interest at
six per cent as it becomes due and
principle as soon as the city can
pay it. This no doubt would be
best for the city but the holders of
the warrants want their money, as
the young folks wanted to get
married, "pretty quick. ",
Sea Tiew, the new city layed
out on- South Beach, ia filling op
fast. Over 1,000 lots have already
been sold at prices ranging from
$35 to $250 per lot. The water
front Jots are the highest. These
lots are sold mostly to people who
never saw them. People want to
come to the seashore for health
ancf recreation, and a few hundred
dollars don't figure much on lot
or two-. L. E. Davis has sold his
place on South Beach, ' all except
five acres, which he reserves for
himself, and the balance is to be
divided ud into lots and five acre
tracts. I understand the price
paid for the place was $6000. The
same company that bough and
layed off Sea View bought the
Davis place also. '
Improvements are going right
along in Newport and the' travel
