Sheriff Gray has been hoard
from. Tlio Iloise City Statesman
gives Mr. Gray or Joaquin Miller
tho following "sondofT:"
Wr. W. P. Gray of Canyon City,
Oregon, is in the city, stopping nt
the Overland. Mr. Gray came to
Idaho in 1801, nnd was for some
time engaged in mining in tho
Hoise Uasin. In lSGft he was a
resident of Canyon City, where he
has since made his home, lie has
some rich recollections of Joaiiuiu
Miller, who was also that year a
resident of Canyon City. Mr. Gray
niul Known Miller venrs before
while the latter was distinguishing
himself as n Modoc Indian brave,
and practicing the use of the lariat
in the mountains and valleys of
Southern Oregon and Northern Cal
ifornia. At Canyon City in '60,
Miller was a candidate for thoollico
of county judge, and meeting Gray
one day said to him: "Gray, voii
aro familiar with some things con
nected with my early history and
exploits, which would servo no
good purjwso at this time to venti
late. Supjxisc we let bygones be
bygones for a while." Miller was
succjlssful in his canvass, and was
sooiyaftcr duly installed as judge,
wheii hu went simultaneously into
thetudy of law and jnictry.
l(o had married Minnie Mvrtlo
some time before, and a part of the
fortune she brought him was mi old
rhyming dictionary, from which hu
learned that very stupid prose could
bo chopped up into lines of varying
length, and made to pass for poctrv
provided the linos wore constructed
so as to end alternately with words
of similar found nnd appearances
Miller afterwards distinguished
himself as nil express rider, turning
his knowledge of horses, learned at
some expense in the Modoc country,
to good account, in carrying letters
and newspaer8 to the mines in the
Hitter Root Mountains. It was
during one of tlieso trips, that his
imagination painted the word K-
dah-ho on the top of a mountain in
the Nez Perce countrv, upon which
pretended discovery ho afterwards
founded his claim of having found
a name, which had been far more
than a vear familiar to all the
travelers through that region.
The Assessors Meet.
Assessor Marquis has advanced
tho itlea that tho interests of all
tho counties and tho state would bo
subserved by a meeting of tho as
sessors of tho various counties at
some central iKiint, Salem or Port
land, in February of each year for
tho purposo or agreeing upon a
method or rate of taxation, The
idea is a good one and tho legisla
ture should provido for such a meet
ing, and, in the meantime, the as
sessors can meet voluntarially. Ab
it is at present there is a disposition
on tho part of county courts to cut
down valuations and raise tho levy
for county taxes. This is donu un
der tho impression that this county
or that, under a full valuation
would pay more than its just pro
portion of state tax. This maybe
true, but tho principles aro wrong
and a meeting of the assessors for
the puro.o of agreeing on a basis
would bo of iinnienso benefit. Prop
erty should be assessod at its value
and then tho rate of assessment
would bo lessened in proportion. If
wo need $100,000 of taxes it stands
to reason that tho levy on a valua
tion of .f.S.OOO.OOO would be only
half as high us on a valuation of
$,000,000. A high rate of tax cre
ates a had impression whUo a low
rate produces the contrary ofleet.

An absurd paragraph has been
going the round of the papers, stat
ing that a mild winter always indi
cates an unusual number of thun
derstorms, in tho succeeding sum
mer. Thunderstorms, more than
any other incleorogical phenomena,
are dependent upon local and tem
porary conditions, and the unsea
sonably warm weather of last win

summer's electrical disturbances
than it will Uou the next presiden

havo been conspicuous for their ab

Soon after tho completion of the

of horses onto the bridge, starting
tliom down grade on a furious run.
The result was inevitable nnd a ru
ined bridge followed. Whet he the
judgment is collectible or not re
mains to be seen but tho veidiel
was a righteous one and it took the
jury about four minutes to return
it. Thore is a law regarding fast
driving of stock over bridges and
stockmen should heed it.
Another Qood Man Gone Wroni;.
For something over a month past
the pulpit of tho M. U. church in
this city has nut been occupied by
its regularly appointed pastor,
known to tlio lambs of his I lock as
Hov. J. M, Haughn. Hy many it
was supposed that tlio reverend
gentleman's absence was due to
conference proceedings requiring
his attendance while his statement,
previous to his own departure, that
ins wife had been called to tho bed
side of a dying brother in tho east
explained the absence of his good
lady. It now transpires that this
expounder of truths divine one
evening met a gentleman, a resi
dent of this city, who had known
him back east in other days and
who cordially greeted him by a
name that Hev. ISaiighn had forgot
ten to bring out we t with the ret
of his baggage. This unexpected
meeting wo perplexed our worthy
pastor that lie left bis supper eook'
ing on tho stove at the parsonage,
locked up the doorH and as he had
no time left to hunt up a custodian
for tho koys left them in the par
sonage d(H)l, and iih ho litis not been
heard of since it may reasonably be
inferred that ho has answered "a
cail" from somewhere else. Tho
woman who posed as his wife while
here was a widow, whoao husband
died of consumption, eleven years
ago, at tho house of one Hev. How
ers in tho state of Kansas. Shortly
after her husband's death she m il
Howers, whose wifo and two chil
dren still reside in Kansas, eloped
together and during all those years
have been unheard of in their for
tnor homo until they turned up a
laborers in toat part of tho Lord's
vineyard known as Haker City.
Key. Haughn, alias Howers, has
doubtless by this time rejoined his
guilty partner and their children,
and as he is the hanpy possessor of
a voire thrt crn bo heard n dozen
blocks it will not be long until hu
will again make it hoard calling

Handsome, courtly Judge ICsteo
is ono of the leading spirits of the
Congress, and, despite his amazing
faculty for saying the wrong thing
and at the wrong time, ho is well
liked by the visitors. Tho day of
tho reception, ho made one of' his
enfitomary mistakes. He alluded
several times to a resemblance ho
thought was most striking, between
Mr. ltoniero. the Mexican minister
and Mr. Pachcro, who used to be in
Congress from Californi. Tho re
semblance he confidently assured
the party was both physical and
mental and extended to tliu tricks
of manner. Now, Mr. Homero has
spent nearly as much time in the
United States as in Mexico, and he
usod to know Mr. Pachcro, toward
whom ho bears much personal ill
feeling. Mr. Pachcro was notorious
as one of the most incompetent and
unimportant nioii who over sat in
Congress nnd his election was a
disgrace to tho election system in
California. Mr. Homoro knew all
this a gioat dual better than forget
ful Judge ICstce, who if he had lim
ited himself to the commonplace
and indefinite compliments of the
day would have Ix-tler lotainod Mr.
