Harney valley has a dangerous
clement in her midst, more to be
fcared than the great "101" organ
ization of List summer, because they
resort to the torch in order to ol
tain redress for their fancied
wrongs. They burned 150 tons of
hay belonging to John Devino one
night last week, and the incendia
ries being pursued, they shot Mr.
Dovin-j's stag hound which had
come upon them. Upon an order
from government olhcials tho U. S.
marshal had removed several squat
tors from Devine's "Jtd S" hnd,
which land was ceded to the state
of Oregon as swam) land and pur
chased by Mr. Devine, but concern
ing which some dispute has arisen
and it has to be re-listed, pending
which action these parties had
'jumped" poitions of the land.

rigible hatred or jealousy against

clique and their anarchist propensi

From a prsD i who arrivcl in
the city from Granite yesterday,
the reporter le.irns th.it a giant
powder explosion occurred a fen
days ago at the La Rellvue mine
which came near sending several
Chinese miners employed thore
back to the flowery kingdom on
a free pass. The Chinamen were
in their cabin when the explosion
occurred and the whole top of the
house was lifted in the air as if
by a Kansas cyclone. One or
two of the Mongolians were dan
gerously injured and others
siightly. How the explosion oc
curred is not known, but we un
derstand that it is supposed to
be the work of white men who
are incensed at the action of Mm
Cabell llroj. in employing Chi
nese miners in preference to white
men and they take this means of
retaliating, a very poor method
indevd. if it is true. The Chi
nese are not to be blamed for ac
cepting work even if in direct
competition with white men. The
Cabell Bros, are the parties to be
blamed, but in cither case it is
wrong to resort to such means
to remedy the matter and the
perpetrators of the outrage
should be severely punished if
apprehended. Red rock Democrat.

Disturbance of the Heart.
Heart disease is like an assas-
sin, which creeps upon you, in ;
the dark, and strikes vou when
unaware. Therefore, do not over
look any uneasiness in the region

Three large excursions went to
Baltimore this week to Edwin
Booth's performance. The fact
