A SAD ACCIDENT.
Mrs. ' Dr. Tucker la Drowned In Mill
The city was plunged into sadness this
morning when it was learned that the
estimable wife of Dr. Geo. F. Tucker had
met with an accident resulting in her
death. It seems that Dr. and Mrs.
Tucker last evening went up Mill Creek
on a fishing trip. About six miles from
the city they got out their tackles and
went at the sjxjrt. The doctor finally
told his wife that he was going up tho
stream a little further and went a short
distance away. He was not gone over
ten minutes. He heard no outcry but
did hear a splash and came back hur
riedly to where he had left his wife. He
was horrified to: find her lying at full
length in the water. Catching hold of
her he frantically lifted her from the
stream, which at that point was about
eighteen inches deep. She gasped once
or twice as he lifted her but in a moment
her lovely spirit had fled and he was left
alone with the body withno one to help
him get her home. As soon as he real
ized that his wife was dead he rushed to
a farmer's house about a half mile away
and procuring a team brought her to the
The theory is that Mrs. Tucker was
standing on a rock and the rapidly run
ning water caused her to become dizzy
and she fell forward and striking a
rock was rendered unconscious and
drowned before her " husband reached
her. There is a small mark over the
left eye and quite a considerable contus
sion which jnust have resulted from the
Mrs. Tucker was about 31 years of age.
She was the daughter of Rev. Carpus
Sperry of the Baptist church of Browns
ville in this state. She leaves two child
ren, Carl and Nellie, aged respectively
about 12 and 10 years of age. ' With her
husband and family she came to The
Dalles a little over two years ago, and
has made very many friends here by her
lovely christian character and sweet life.
Her body will be taken to Brownsville
by this evening's train, where she will
Dr. Tucker has the sympathy of the
entire community in his deep bereave
ment. Mrs. Dr. Tucker leaves a sister at
Hillsboro, Mrs. Dr. J. E. Adkins. Be
sides the lady named she has sisters as
follows : Mrw. Elias Hill, Brownsville ;
Mrs. Dr. W. F. Skiff, Portland;' Mrs. E.
S. Warren, Oregon City ; and a brother,
Mr. William O. Sperry of Brownsville.
She was born at Healdsburgh, California
and was married to the doctor October
20, 1879. It proved a happy marriage
for all concerned, and their lives grew
brighter and brighter as the years went
by. She was a true christian, a member
of the Baptist church here, and was
much beloved by all who knew her.

- Right She Was.
"Turn that wrapping paper the other
side out," said a Jady in a dry goods
store, as the clerk was putting up her
purchase-in a printed wrapping paper.
"I don't want to be a walking advertise-
ment for your store. I read the papers,
as all intelligent people ought to do, and I
think that in them is the place to adver
tise your business. . Instead of asking
your customers to carry your sign around
with each purchase of goods, go and tell
the people through the papers what you
have to sell and how yon sell it;" The
lady was right.

New Views of VHu Settled California.
In the programme which was carried
out at San Francisco yesterday the presi
dential party called on ,Adolph Sutro.
During the speech making that was
had ' Mr. . Sutro . presented president
Harrison with a handsomely Morrocco
bound album, containing scenes in Sutro
heights and a photo-lithographic copy
of the letter written by Sebastian
Viscayno from the bay of Monterey,
December 24, 1602, to the court of Spain,,
announcing that he had taken possession
of the country (California) in the name
of his majesty. In presenting this in
teresting document Mr. Sutro said : '
"Mr. President, I do not rise to inflict
a speech upon you ; I simply rise to pre
sent to you a photo-lithographic letter,
written by Sebastian Viscayno, the great
Spanish navigator. This is" probably the
first letter in existence written by any
human being from California. It is
dated at the port of Monterey, Decem
ber 24, 1602, named in honor of the
count of Monterey, then viceroy of Mex
ico. It is addressed to the court of
Spain, aud states that he (Viscayno)
had taken possession of this country for
his majesty. We now know that the
opinion expressed about California, at
this early date, was quite correct, for he
says : 'The land is thickly peopled by
Indians, is very fertile, and its climate
and the quality of its soil resembles Cas
tile, and any seed sown there will give
fruit.' The "original of this letter I found
in hunting through the archives of the
DeLos Indians at Seville, Spain. At the
date of this, letter queen Elizabeth was
still on the throne of England, Louis
Quatorze, of France, was not born yet,
and the Pilgrim Fathers had not "yet
landed on Pilgrim rock. Little did Sebas
tian Viscayno dream that within three
centuries this far distant land would be
counted as one of the best, if not the
best portion of the domain of a nation,
the most enlightened, progressive and
powerful on the face of the globe. In
connection with the history of California,
it is a curious fact that the early navi
gators Sir Francis Drake, Cabrillo and
others for two centuries sailed by the
bay of San Francisco without discover
ing it. It was left to an overland expe
dition, undertaken in the year 17H9 by
the Franciscan fathers from San Diego,
to discover the bay of San Francisco,
which they at first supposed to be an in
land lake: The entrance to the bay
from the ocean, or the Golden Gate, was
not discovered until five years later,
December 4, 1774, by another expedition,
sent out from Monterey by Junipero
Serra, the founder of all the missions of
California. Theodore Hittell, the his
torian, speaks of this event as follows:
'They arrived December 4, 1774, at Point
Lobos, where they supposed themselves
the first Christian visitors. Thev erected
a cross upon the summit of the hill look
ing down upon the jagged points of the
seal rocks on the one side, and on the
deep precipices of the entrance into the
bay on the other." Mr. President, we
are glad they found the Golden Gate for
otherwise none of us would be here to
dav. We are also glad that you will
today behold it in all its natural gran
deur, perfectly preserved as Junipero's
soldiers saw it ; for no modern cannon
nor extensive earthworks have been per
mitted to mar its pristine beauty. Mr.
President, we all thank you for " having
come to see our beautiful land, and per
mit me especially to thank vou for the
honor of your visit to Sutro heights."
How is Your Insurance Policy.
Hon. It. M. Veatch. state senator frorri
Lane county, whose flouring mill burned
recently, is"having trouble over his- in
surance money. He had two Klicies,
tne nrst tor $4uuu, the second ?30U0. By
the agreement on the policies, if any ad
ditional insurance is taken out, the
first insurance company must be
noti fied and their consent obtained. Mr.
Veatch did not know this, and therefore
in taking out his second policy he un
wittingly relinquished all claims on the
first company, which now refuses to pay
any part of the $4000, upon which Sir.
Veatch has faithfully paid his premiums.
