Since Jay Gould has gained possession
. of the Union Pacific all the white section
hands have been discharged and Chinese
emyloyed in their places. At this point
, sixteen white men were employed at an
average wage of $1.80 per day. This put
in circulation here about $750 per month,
which is about $725 more than shows up
from the chinamen. Some folks object
to convict labor, but for all practical
purposes convict labor is no worse for
the public than Chinese labor. The
state derives the benefit from the former.

mines near Fossil, says that surveyors
for a railroad from the mines to The
Dalles will be put in the field in about
three weeks. There is a rumor afloat
-. that the Union Pacific is considering the
advisabilty of building a road to the
mines, probably from Heppner. It would
be better for the whole country to have
a competing branch, and have it connect
. with the future Columbia river boat lines
, at The Dalles.. It would be a grand pay
ing investment if there were no other
resources than the coal mines, but it will
have an immense traffic in agricultural
freights as soon, as completed. The peo

The ChiieM Bonaced From Milton.
Report comes from Milton that a gen
eral raid was instituted there Wednes
day night against the Chinese. The
story goes that about one hunarea men
went to the Chinese quarter and led the
celestials out with ropes around their
necks afterward compelling them to
leave town. It is conjectured that the
raid is the result of hiring coolies in the
place of white labors on the railroad sec
tions. It is said that the Chinamen
were roughly handled, and that two
were pretty badly hurt.
Since the above was in type me report
has been confirmed. The" "firing" party
consisted of discharged white section
hands and sympathizing Milton citizens,
and all Chinamen in the vicinity, coolies
and wash-house celestials, were inconti
nently bounced. Milton people will
take care that thev do not return, as
the general sentiment there is said to be
against the uninese. -Discharged
white section hands con
gregated at Pendleton shortly after the
removal, -and were bitter in their denun
ciation of the railroad company. Jay

and sowed the amout received the next
year, again b arresting it with her shears.
The third crop her father cut with a
grass scythe, getting enough barley from
this crop to sow forty acres last spring,
which averaged forty bushels to the acre
when thrashed, making a total yield of

A Toochini Story of an Air That the Late
r Kaiser Was Very Fond Of.
In the year' 1844 Prince Frederick was
in his thirteenth year. TT music lesson
was over one day, and his teacher,
Beichardt, the composer of the German
patriotic song, "What Is the German
Fatherland?" was going away, when the
prince said: "Herr Beichardt, papa's
birthday will ; be the 22d of March.
Herr Dr. Curtdus thought it would be
nice for me to learn something special
for that day. Will you kindly choose
something suitable? It may be some
thing difficult, so that papa sees that I
have taken pains to please him. Papa
loves music full of soft and tender feel
"Yes, royal highness, then we must
take a pretty adagio. H m, h m," re
plied Reichardt, who rummaged about
the ' music to - find something suitable.
Finally he held a piece in his hand longer
than be had held the others.
"Is that suitable, Herr Eeichardt?" 5
"Your royal highness, we are not far
enough advanced. - This is too difficult.
It is the adagio from Schumann's (F
sharp minor) sonata. It will not do.
The time is too short." . v '
"Oh, Herr Reichardt," said the prince
coaxingly, "I shall be very industrious.
Please, please! It will do it must do!"
The prince added gayly: "It will not do
'adagio. It will go forte.' That is
what papa always says to me."
The difficult adagio was studied with
diligence, pains and perseverance. On
the 22d of March the young prince sur
prised his illustrious father by the per
formance of the splendid piece, which he
played with astonishing firmness and
great feeling. His father presented him
with a complete outfit of tools for cab
inet work for his diligence.
Forty-Jour years after at the imposing
castle of Friedrichskron lay the noble
Kaiser Friedrich, the heroic sufferer.
His former clear and sunny eyes looked
tired. Only at times he seemed to re
vive when he looked through the open
window into the chief avenue which '
passes from Pottsdam through the royal
gardens at the castle. Then more light
and cheerfulness came into his eyes.
The empress entered. . She tried to
look cheerful as she sat down beside the
sick bed of her beloved husband. His
countenance suddenly lighted np with a
smile at his true and tried companion.
With a motion of his hand he signed to
her that the pleasant weather pleased
him so much.
Toward the last the sufferer could not
speak, and he -preferred to make signs
rather than write notes. The empress
asked her husband whether he had spe
cial wishes, and after a little pause he
motioned piano playing.
"Who shall play?" asked the empress.
Then she added, "Will it not excite you
too much?" '
"No," motioned the kaiser. Then he
wrote a little note. "I wish to hear
good music; could not Rufer, 'Victoria's
"I shall have him asked to come," said
the empress. He is over in the Born
stedter church now giving her organ les
sons." " - '
The empress ' gave the required direc
tions, and the composer of "Merlin" ap
peared. There was a piano in the ad
joining room, the doors were opened,
and the artist seated himself at the
piano. The kaiser requested to hear sev
eral of his favorite melodies, and listened
with evident pleasure to the heart touch
ing tune language.
The master, overcome with emotion,
had already played several pieces of his
own and of the compositions of others.
The kaiser had him thanked every time
and asked for more. The closing chords
of a melody had again died away when
the empress asked him, full of concern,
"Tired, or does it excite yon?"
The kaiser answered in the negative
and again wrote a note: "Only one yet
an adagio from a sonata. It shall be
the last." The master in the next room
complied with the dying kaiser's wish.
He seated himself again at the piano and
played a splendid adagio. The sick
kaiser listened. His eyes grew brighter.
He motioned to the empress and wrote
with feverish haste several words:
"Forty years ago I played this adagio
for my papa's ' birthday. - Certainly not
so well. Very pretty. Thanks, Rufer.
Last piece; then sleep."
It was really the last piece, this ada
gio.. . They were the last musical tones
that reached the dying monarch's ears.

The Story of Sergt. Jasper.
In the "Year Book" of Mayor Bryan,
of , Charleston, S. C, extracts are pub
lished from the diary of Capt. Barnard
Elliott, a soldier of the olden time. In
cluded is "the true story" of Sergt. Jas
per and his famous "Don't let us fight
without a flag." In the battle of Fort
Moultrie the story runs thus, according
to Capt. Elliott:
.-- "The flagstaff being . shot down, and
the staff falling . to the ground in the
heat of battle, Jasper called to his
" 'Colonel, don't let us fight without
" 'How can you . help it? replied the
colonel; .'the staff is gone.'
. " 'Then I will replace it, said John,
upon which he leaped over the wall,
took the nag and tied it to a sponge staff,
and stuck it upon the merlon of the bas
tion near the enemy, gave three huzzas
in the dangerous place he stood, and re
tired to tiis gun, where he fought with
his gallant company to the end of the
battle." . - - -
Three Hundred Dollars m Drop.
In one of the cellars of the Rathskeller
at Bremen are twelve large cases of wine,
each bearing the ' name of one of the
twelve apostles. They contain the famous
" Rosen wein," which was deposited in the
cellar named in 1624. At the time the
wine was put in the cellar it was worth
500 rix dollars per case, each case com
prising 204 bottles.' Taking all expenses
into account and compounding the in
terest, a single glass of that wine today
(say one-eighth of a bottle), would be
worth $300,000, or about $300 a drop!
