the hopeful citizen that the legislature is
unanimously in favor of it. -This may
be true but if it is, the legislature takes
a peculiar way of showing iW interest in
the bill. We have been told day after
day that the bill will pass, but it sleeps
still in the committee. ' T?aley's bill
appropriating' $400,000 ' for a ' railroad
around the rapids between here and
Celilo passed the senaie all right, but
the Cascade bill shimbers.-; If it has any
friend why is it not called up and passed?
Is it kept for trading'purposes? Or is it
the intention to hold i,t back until it will
get lost in the grand crush of. the last
day?- There' remain ' Tmt'seveh working
days, for this legislature, and as the bill
has to yet be concurred in by the senate
there is no time to lose. : Eastern Oregon
is decidedly tired of "this- trifling, she
demands the passage of this bill, and if
it is not done, we advise its enemies to
remain on the other side of the Cascades,
if they have any political aspirations.
The United States senate will be called
upon to decide between Mr. Dubois and
Mr. Claggett as to which is the legally
elected senator from Idaho. 1" That adol
escent state now has four senators, thus
breaking the record, and as Mr. McDon
nell goes out on the 4th of March either
. Claggett or Dubois will succeed him.
The basis of Claggett's claim is that
Dubois was not legally elected, as it was
impossible from the legislature to know
whom he was to succeed, and that until
this question was settled, until McDon
nell and Sheup had drawn from their
terms no election could be legally held.
It is impossible to surmise how this
question will be decided, as the senate is
the judge of the qualification of its own
members, but if it is decided on the
merits of the candidates Claggett will
win on first ballot.

is here has been provided for, but there
will be more shipped here from the in

reasonable in their demands the wheat
crop would have been shipped from here.
They thought there was a trig crop and
they could get big prices for charters.
but they found there is another way of
getting rid of our wheat."
.Being asked it this sort of thing would
occur again, he replied :
it is likely to occur at any time when
unreasonable prices are asked for char
ters. A great deal of wheat was shipped
east year before last. - Last year there
was not so much shipped that way, but
it is liable to go that way . whenever
charters are too dear.

take advantage of the shippers here and
charge excessive prices, and who find
their vessels lying in port all summer
waiting tor the new crop, as has hap
pened here, will hnd that tbere is noth

to the shippers of the state. It is in
substance as follows : "It shall be un

compensation for transportation of
freight in carload lots per ton per mile
thau it' charges per ion per mile
from points outside, into or through the
state. The railroad shall post in every
station a schedule of rates affected by
this bill. The railroads must not neglect
to supply cars to . shippers within the

from Moody's I saw two trappers walk
ing in my direction. V
' "They looked like honest fellows, and
I confided my suspicions to them. The
first comment one of the men made was.
'I always believed that old wretch was a
murderer.' As I was not in Bearch of
adventure I declined to return to Moody's
house, and in the trappers' presence de
manded an explanation.
"All I asked was their protection for
a mile or two. For an old silver watch
they consented to accompany me, and
we started. . I did not suspect Moody or
bis son were within a mile of me, but
when I suddenly walked out from a lit
tle clump of trees a bullet went whizzing
past me and lodged in the trunk of a
hickory. I jumped . back into a thicket
of underbrush and was almost scared to
death. 1 got out my revolver, however,
and prepared' to defend myself.
'I lay there about five minutes. Sud
denly there was another loud report, not
far from me. The shot was immediately
followed by another, and then I heard
one of the trappers, who had taken up
positions near me as soon as the first
thot was fired, say, 'I think they are
done for. . .. .
'My trapper friends called me from
my hiding place, ana lying Denina a
fallen tree were the bodies of Moody and
hia son. The old man was shot through
the temple when he was looking over the
log for me, and the son's back was brok
en, he having started to run away after
hia father was killed. The bullet passed
through his stomach. Both men were
dead when we reached them. We then
returned to the house, but finding it
empty looked into the barn, and there
found the two women in a big cellar un
der the building digging a grave my
- "We found no less than twenty skele
tons in the place. That old wretch and
bis son had killed every stranger who
had visited that part of the country for
years. There was no end of excitement
when the news of the ghastly finds in
the den went abroad, and before I left
the country the two women ware strung
up to a tree.. Moody's remains and those
of bis aon were also hung up as a warn'
