Sunday evening last Mr. Mahoney the

very near losing his life while bathing at
' the mouth of Mill Creek near where the

to sink for the proverbial third time
when Mr. Rodney, another employe,
caught him by the outstretched band
and saved his life.
A kind hearted landlord advertised

part of the state in tne toiiowmg man
ner : "A few boarders wanted by a pri

and the Red Bluff Sentinel says : If the

The editor of the Chronicle went
down to the Cascade Locks in company
with several gentlemen this morning
where they will meet Senator Mitchell,
who is on an inspecting tour of the state
looking into its interests, wants and re
quirements. It is devotedly hoped that
the visit to that point, where all of East'

where else will De the result of a new
regime which will give us an open river

Mr. N. C. Wilson, who has been in
the French & Co. bank for the past two
wears, took his departure yesterday
' morning for California where he will go
into the Belmont Preparatory school
. .prior to entering Harvard college, where
he will fit himself for the study of medi

the bank is supplied by the presence of
Mr. Jesse Hoatetter of Concrdia, Kan
sas, who arrived a few days aro with his ("
charming young wife. They have taken
rooms in the Vogt Block. V '
The past few days the wind has been
furious and the dust intolerable.
A private letter from Uncle J. P.
Combs, who went over the mountains
recently, states that the wild blackberry
crop this year is practically a failare.
The police court is quiet today. There
has not been an arrest, not even a hobo
run in although-one. was seen leaning
against a telegraph pole waiting for an
opportunity to jump a breakbeam.

The Columbia river at this city regis
ters fifteen feet above zero, and is falling

The highest point reached this season
was twenty-six and six-tenths, on the

The ''banker's organ" on- Court street
has a deal to say about the, lack of enter

The steamer Regulator has been

afternoon. The boiler has been set, and
her machinery is being got into its bed
as fast as the machinists can do it. The
other work is nearine' completion ' and
the painting will be begun in a few days.
There are several . places in this city
where the trees are not trimmed the re-
auired height above the sidewalk - mak
ing it very troublesome to pedestrians.
and especially ladies. We believe there
is a city ordinance providing that the
trees be trimmed to a certain height
and it should be done.
We noticed a lot of mill machinery at
the Wasco warehouse which we under
stand is for Messrs Stewart and company
at Prineville. Messrs Williams and Groat
of Portland are furnishing it. Messers
Stewart & Co., are having their old mill
changed into a first class roller, and when
done Prineville will stop importation of
flour as they will be able to supply
themselves with the best made.
Last evening, as a Chbonicle reporter
was passing down Second street, he saw
something that w ould make the average
policeman hard to find, and which very
much resembled. a lively free-for-all
Irish wake. A nnmler of young men,
variously armed with clubs, brooms and
coats, were engaged in a lively war.
The fun lasted some time, and it was
discovered, after carefully .examining
the ground, that by an accidental dis
charge of a club, they had succeded in
killing one small bat. The rest of the
participants escaped without injury.'
Col. Beebe, of the first regiment, O.
N. G., lias issued an order compliment
ing the militiamen under his command
for the good work done while they were
in camp. Uur boys in the third regi
ment have been looking in vain for
something of the kind, for they certainly
demonstrated heroic courage aud unlim
ited endurance in their war with heat
and dust at The Dalles. But up to date
about all we have noted is, that the
boys didn't do quite enough to please
the selfish instincts of the residents at
the sandy city. The third regiment will
never bother The Dalles again with its
encampment. There aro other places
where more white people live. Captain
McCully of Co. I., Joseph, Or.
A little item is going the rounds of the
papers that rightly interpreted is full of
meaning. It is this : "The first ship
ment of Walla Walla wheat has reached
fortiana. At cost sixty-three cents in
Walla Walla, and is worth a dollar in
Portland." What an argument for an
open river. Wheat bought in a section
tributary to the Columbia enhanced in
value 60 per cent. by. carriage a few
miles! Under right conditions that
wheat would produce the Walla Walla
grower nearer the -dollar a bushel, and
be worth as much afloat at Astoria as
afloat at San Francisco. Astorian
Two questions arise in connection
with the salmon run .in the Columbia
river this season : the first is, where did
all the big salmon come from this year
why were the salmon of 1891 so much
bigger than the. salmon. of previous
years? ' The other is, what are the by
brid salmon, the spotted fish caught so
numerously in the traps this year? Two
jars of those spotted fish have been sent
back east, one to Professor Jordan, of the
u nitea estates lish commission ; the
other to the Smithsonian Inititute.

A good manv wheat fields in the
Ochoco and McKay valleys have been
practically ruined by rust. The ground
being wet and the grain yerv rank, the
crop was in no condition to withstand
the eltects of a broiling sun, and many
farmers whose prospects were so brilliant
only a few days ago are quite naturally
sore over the unavoidable misfortune
that has lefallen their wheat crops.
The editor of the Klamath Star has
got a new safe and here is what he has
to say about it :
Our safe has arrived. Now, dear de
linquents, be moderate and careful about
firing the coin in, and above all don't
step on one another's coat tails. At pre
sent we are using the cool iron chest as a
receptacle for our landlady's butter, but
will throw it open when the coin begins
to ny in. We think the butter will then
be strong' enough to take care of itself.
The Buffalo Express intimated that
Henry Watterson, of the Courier-Journal,
was a ''thick and thin Cleveland man,"
and to this the "Star Eyed Goddess"
gave this reply : "He was never a thick
and thin anybody's man. He opposed
the nomination of Mr. Cleveland in 1884.
Of course he supported his nomination
in 1888, in common with all good demo
crats. He is for his nomination in 1892,
if New York consents. Buf, if the atti
tude of the New York democracy indi
cates that Mr. Cleveland will be knifed
out of the vote of the state again, as he
was before, it would be suicidal to nom
inate him, and, when the party leaves
Cleveland, it leaves New York. Is this
Charley Miller, the veteran miner, is
in the city from his Greenhorn proDerty.
He reports mining matters quiet in that
camp, also that the Bennett claim is
looking exceedingly well, there being
about three feet of high grade ore. Mr.
Miller will endeavor to start up his .mill
at the monumental mine for custom
work. This is a move in the right direc
tion, and if he succeeds in starting the
mill the greenhorn miners can pack out
a Bufhcient amount of ore, the net pro
ceeds of which will enable them to
further develop their prospects, build
roads and otherwise lieln themselves.
