Among the freaks to be seen in the
east just now the strangest and most in
teresting are Mile. Aama and sister.
The former is seven, feet eleven inches in
height, is yet but a mere girl of sixteen
and growing at an enormous rate. Last
year she grew three inches and physi
cians believe that she will reach the
height of nine feet by the time she is
twenty. ' This giant requires five meals
a day to live comfortably and drinks
about twenty-five quarts of water.
v Nothing less of a freak is her . sister -who
is five years older, but 2 feet high.
The contrast is most striking. The
freaks belong to the Jura mountains in

Mr. Folco got the cigars, in the at
tachment suit before Judge Tom Ward
yesterday. The trial of the case was a
most aggravating one, and at times
counsel became warmed up to the pitch
of battle. White's side was hotly con
tested by Judge J. B. Condon, and as
strongly opposed by Messrs. Myers and
Riddell. It was made clear to the jury
that the attached goods belonged to
White, and that his attempt to get them
out of the wav to avoid payment of his
debts was fraud. The attachment holds
the cigars, and the Sheriff puts up for
the jury, and there was consequently no
strike. Otherwise the jurv ' intended to
hold its verdict as compensation of fees
Mr. George Belshaw, the Tmohs
wheat grower of Eugene now has the
most magnificent collection of wheat he
has ever raised and it will be placed in
the Oregon exhibit at the Columbian
exposition. This collection includes
200 bundles and eighty sacks of as many
varieties of wheat. Many of the bnr
d les of wheat stand over seven and a
half feet high. Mr. Belshaw has been
engaged for many years in testing varie
ties of wheat under a system of high
culture and has experimented with over
200 varieties. As indicating what his
skll, in conjunction with the favorable
natural conditions found in Oregon can
do, is the fact that wheat grown by him
took the first place both at the Centen
nial exposition at Philadelphia in '76
and at the New Orleans exposition. He
considers his present exhibit superior to
any that he ha" ever made before.
The Roslyn gang are all safely held
for trial in the Kittitas county jail, in
bonds of $10,( 30 each; but they are of
such a notorious band of outlaws that
there will be plenty of chums to swear
them out falsely. They have been a
holy terror to the" Inland Empire ever
since tbey set up in business in what is
known now as Gilliam county. At dif
ferent times members of this gang have
been arrested; but no jury can be found
that will convict them. Some time ago
one of the Zachary boys and George Roe
were caught in the very act of killing
and selling a stolen steer to a botcher.
Roe skipped out, but was arrested and
brought back. The. evidence against
him was of the strongest kind, and he
was convicted. But did he go to the
penitentiary? He was simply .fined
$1,500, which the gang paid. His part
ner in crime, equally guilty, was not
even arrested, although the testimony
showed that he helped butcher the steer
and received half of the proceeds of the

The opening argument was made by
Prosecuting Attorney Wilson, before ad

an hour and 30 minutest and the court
adjourned till 7:30 p. m., at' which hour
the court room was fillrd with specta
tors. Half an hour was taken up by

Ihe most noticeable thing in the cir
cuit court room this morning, after the
experiences of the past week was "va
cancy." . The hitherto well filled seats
nd crowded aisles had few occupants,
ut the court was pursuing its wonted
ay in a business-like manner. ' Th
vse of M. M. Baldwin v. Wm. Snyder
for posseBssion of property on Malri
street was decided by a verdict of the
jury for plaintiff.
This afternoon the suit of the Water
Supplv Co. of Hood Kivpr v. W, Ross
Winans is on' triabfffffr. Winans con
siders that the water supply company
are taking undue liberties with his
property ; that they would destroy his
valuable water power at Winans, ruin
his summer resort, impoverish him and
lay waste all his plans of future develop
ment at the new town referred to in an
other column. Mr. Winans proposes to
try the case and ascertain whether he
has any vested rights which his would
be neighbors are bound to respect, and
ior this purpose has employed counsel
and empanneled a jury of his peers.
Our Fellow Townsman Linn Hub
bard and Hia Open. Columbia
From the Eust Oregonian.
With the Columbia river open and
free the people of the great Inland Em
pire would be more prosperous and the
country, better developed. Cheaper
transportation would make lands profit
able which are idle at present, would
encourage enterprise which is dormant
now ; would make men energetic who
are listless today. It would do much to
make the desert blossom as the rose,
several prosperous towns would spring
up along both sides of the Columbia
river, affording labor and opportunity
to thousands in search of. work. In
short, it wouid be a ' progressive step
which would never be ' forget ten. It
would build up au Empire.
Among the foremost workers for an
open river is Linus Hubbard, of The
Dalles. He never wearies in his efforts;
he breathes the air of the future free
and open river ; he proclaims from the
hill tops the benefits it would bestow
Mr. Hubbard is a practical man, one
who knows a thing or two, who has
traveled and observed. He. feels no
hesitancy in declaring the greatest work
of the time to be "An Open River,
He has recently sent out photographs
giving views of the steamers plying on
the lower river, with appropriate re
marks and a statement of facta existing
oil the river prior to the state opening the
river below The Dalle3. If the state will
use the same means to open the river
above the dalles the price for transport
ing wheajt from points on and near the
Columbia would be materially les
sened. Undoubtedly the producers of
Umatilla county would-receive at least
ten cents more per bushel for their
grain than they do at present. This
means at least $250,000 a" year more in
the pockets of the farmers east of the
mountains. On this account an open
river is very important and every citizen
of the Inland Empire should do his ut
most to assist in bringing it about.
Salmon Out of Season.
The arrival of fine Chinook salmon in
the Columbia river, at . the present
time teaches the importance of a change
in the close season. Their spawn can
not hatch during the open season, be
cause of the miles of lead lines hauled
by the tides across the spawning sands?
The fish coming in now were hatched j
.iter the close of former seasons. Com-
uion sense would 'seeui - to dictate a
hange of the time for fishing. Close
the present open season ; let the fish
have a chance to come in unobstructed
and spawn for three years; and fish jn
the present clo&e season. A Portland
paper says of the present run: "Follow
ing close after the first lot of Columbia
iver smelt as uBual, the first Chinook
salmon made its appearance in the
market yesterday. It was as plump as
partridge, and as bright as a silver dol-
iir. and had just come from the ocean.
Fish sharps are at a loss to account for
the unusually early arrival of the smelt
and chinook salmon. Some say the
flood in the river has brought them up,
but a flood at this season is no unusual
thing,, and has never brought the fish
up so early before. Early springs are
not uncommon here, but it is hardly
possible that spring has come before
winter has set in. Probably the fish
will find that they have been a little too
previous and will go back and. wait till
their usual season comes around." A
man cannot be very much of a "fish
sharp" to be unable to account for the
"unusually early arrival." The la i
simply hatched later in the season,
probably three or five years ago, have
atored, and come home to spawn.
That's all there is to it.

East Oregonian. It looks as if the
Indian depredation claims presented by
residents of this locality, which have
been hanging-fire for a long time and
have occasioned the visits of several
government agents to Pendleton, will
soon be settled by Uncle Sam. It is' re
ported that several parties are receiving
vouchers, which, after being duly signed,
will be followed by warrants. The
names of two were learned. Last Satur
day Frank S. Landry received a voucher
for $941. ' During the Indian war of
1878 the. redskins destroyed his house
and all its contents. v He was then re
siding on Owen's creek, about midway
between Willow Springs and Beasley's
mill. Mr. Landry found it convenient
to be absent about the time the Indians
made' their informal call. -. G. D. Rich
ardson is also in receipt of a .voucher.
He will be paid about $200 for property
