Taffe. The Chinaman is the only one of
the three adicted to reading. He has
what might be a whole library, for
aught we know, of Chinese literature,
and he spends nearly all his time perus
ing it. The jail itself is a model of
cleanness. The walls of the day room
and cells are as white as snow and the
place is as free from unpleasant smells
as the parlor of any residence in the

Fitzgerald, has the credit, for he deserves
Some of the finest peaches that have
been brought to The Dalles this season
will be sent today by Maj. Ingalls to the
Oregon Immigration Board, for "Oregon
on Wheels." These peaches were raised
in The Dalles by Mr. H. Horn, the lot,
about one half a box, averaged eight
ounces and are known as the Rosters'
variety. Quite a number of our fruit
men on Mill Creek and Three Mile, have
promised Maj. Ingalls some choice lots
of fruit and vegetables in a few days for
"Oregon oh Wheels.". A letter received
today from the State Board of Immigra
tion by Maj. Ingalls states that all
specimens from The Dalles ' will have
prominent place in the exhibit cars. It
is hoped that the farmers and fruit men
of this vicinity will improve this oppor
tunity to show Eastern people the pos
sibilities of this section in fruits, grains
and vegetables, in comparison with other
parts of Oregon and California. Any
thing left at this office will be delivered
over to Maj. Ingalls.
E. Jacobsen and N. N. Eastwood took
the contract, this morning, for cleaning
up the street in front of the stores on
becond street from Jacobsen's Btore to
Stubblings corner. The contract was let
by E. N. Chandler and the price paid or
rather promised,, was sixty, cents. The
work was well done and the money
honestly earned, but whether Pap
paid it or not we have not learned
Later We have just learned that when
Messrs Jacobsen and Eastwood had fin
ished their work Pap Chandler offered
to pay them in watermelons," which they
indignantly refused. Then he wanted
them to wait till the first of the month
for their pay, this they refused to do.
Then Jacobsen held Pap up while East
wood took the money out of his pocket.
It was found, by the way, that Pap had
a dollar and a quarter in his possession
which he had obtained in twenty-five
cent pieces from the neighboring stores,
for doing the work, so that he got the
street before his own door cleaned for
nothing and had sixty-five cents left.
There are no flies on Pap Chandler.

Artesian water, that has a daily flow
of 250,000 gallons and rises forty feet in
the air, was struck in the north Yakima
country last week, at a depth of 400 feet.
The people up there think they have
solved the problem of irrigation for hun
dreds of thousands of acres of land, prac
tically valueless without water, for any
thing except pasture. ,
. By reason of some defect in the mech
anism of the lock of the safe- of Ladd &
Bush's bank of Salem over $100,000 were
shut off from use and circulation for the
past three weeks. The safe was one of
the, old "dreadnaught" pattern none of
which have been . manufactured for
nearly twenty years. One expert safe-
opener worked for seven days to- bore a
small hole through one of the plates.
This plate was bo hard that drills that
would cut through plate glass would not
scratch it and it was only by the use of
emery drills that any impression- could
be made on it.
A Sad Accident.
Yesterday morning about 8 o clock as
the east bound, freight train, nnmber
twenty-eight, was at the gravel quarry,
eight miles this side of Portland, brake-
man Frank Tracey fell from a freight car
and the truckB passed over his righ,t leg
midway below the knee almost' com
pletely severing it from the body. ' It
appears the engine with four cars at
tacbed. waa going down , the incline to
the quarry when one of the cars came
against another that was standing at the
end of a switch. ' Whether Tracey was
attempting to jump on the other car and
missed his footing or accidentally fell off
the car he was on is not known, but he
fell between the cars with the above re
suit. The leg had to be amputated be
low the knee. Mr. Tracey is favorably
known in The Dalles where he used to
be em ployed in the company's yard. He
is well spoken of by all his fellow em
ploves. He has a wife- and family. . A
singular thing connected with the ac
cident is that when he was picked up his
left shoe was off his foot, though how it
was taken off our informant was unable
to guess. The foot itself was only
