A gang of counterfeiters of the most
dangerous class, were captured in San
Fraucisco Saturday night by N. R. Har-
sis, secret service agent of the govern
ment. Senator Steiwer introduced a joint
resolution urging congress to make some
effort to extend the time for making
final proof in all cases under the rail
way forfeiture act. It passed both
branches of the assembly on the 10th,
and is now in Washington, perhaps.
Henry Villard says he will not be a

The hand of the U. P. R. Co., appears
in the movement for the proposed
county of Hood River. Last week the
Glacier gave the snap dead away. In a
local item the visit of Zera Snow, U. P.
R. attorney, and Mr. McCoy of Omaha,
ia noted; and in another column - the
paper speaks of a capitalist, "there yes
terday" anxious to put up- $25,000 for
eal estate, "providing that the county
was divided." There is the least reason
in the project for Hood River county of
any yet proposed. The people there are
within an hour of the -county seat by
railway at any time', and can leave home
after the mid-day meal, returning borne
for their tea, at the mere cost of travel
They propose to take out of 1 the county
with them $300,000 worth of railway
property, leaving to take its place an
additional 5-mills tax on all property
Then there is no justice in the boundary
nes proposed, coming within seven
iles of The Dalles. Why. not go the
dther way, within Seven miles of Port-

According to the great daily in the big
city the "scrub-press" of .Oregon should
rhave nothing to say about the jute-mill
project.' When .that great oracle of
monopoly speaks, . however, ttieri the
world must smile an audible acceptance
to its wise . sayings : such,' for instance
as this : ?Jf the state would erect
large stockade and put inside of it Bev
eral hundred tons of gravel, and then
employ the convicts every working day
in the year in wheeling this -gravel first
to one side 'of the enclosure and then the
other, the penitentiary problem would
be solved with, less cost to the state than
if an attempt were made to erect and op
erate jute bagmills." If that paragraph
silly as it is, does not prove the Orego-
nian to stand in with the convict abor
contract monopoly, what else does
show? Aw were staggered to read such
a remark toed bi won sohias 'e is. Sooa

The Walla Walla Statesman recalls
the fact that in 1861 snow fell to the
depth of three feet all over that valley,
remaining on for three months. Those
were the days when cattle were expected
to rustle their own living on the range,
and no preparation was ever made for. a
hard winter. The consequence was
that fully three-fourths of the cattle in
the valley died, being unable to reach
the bunch grass through the deep snow.
Oregon sympathizes with Senator
Mitchell in the death of his son-in-law,
Wm. R. Handy, in Washington, D. C.
His illness was quick consumption, and
his death removes one of the most pop
ular young, men of the capital. Mr.
Handy leaves a beautiful wife and two
lovely children. His life has been des
paired of for some time, and the efforts
of the best physicians in New- York, and
Washington were unavailing. The
widow as well as the senator, and Hi
ram Mitchell, who is now in. Portland,
will receive the sympathy, in . their . be
reavement, of a large number of friends,
both in Oregon and Washington. ;
In Umatilla on - Saturday a young
white fellow attempted to steal a pair of
gloves from an Indian, and the incident
came near causing an outbreak among
the 300 Columbia river Indians - camp
ed near there. The Indian was. peddl
ing squaw-made gloves and while dis
playing his goods to a crowd of , young
men, one slipped a pair into his pocket.
This enraged the Indian, and after mak
ing repeated demands for the return - of
the property,, he went away. - He pre
sently returned with a dozen more fight'
ing mad. They marched up and down the
street, threatening to bring all the Indi
ans over and wipe out the town, unless
the gloves were returned. For a short
time it looked as if there would be trou
ble, as their savage blood was at a fever
heat. -They finally located the young
man, and scared him into giving over
the gloves, and then went awav, appar
ently satisfied. j. r .., I
A Terrible Accident.
The'Sunday wood train out of Port
land on the narrow guage was derailed
by a fallen tree across the track yester
day, and sixteen men were badly in'
jured.. The train ran off a trestle on
both sides, after striking the tree. So
great was the impetus with which the
locomotive struck that it smashed some
of the ties together over on one side
the seven flat cars attached following,
and the caboose on the other side, mak
ing a complete revolution, and landing
right side up with . such force
that it was burst completely to pieces.
The passengers were thrown from one
side to the other of the car as it rolled
over, crashing against each side in turn
and landing in a heap on the bottom
The locomotive- was badly smashed and
went about half-way out of sight in the
mud.' The brakes having been applied
at the rear of the train, the seventeen
flat cars behind the caboose remained
on the track. -
Miller's fishery bill will probably be
come a law, and if a permanent ladder
is blasted out of the rocks at Oregon city,
will be the mears of doing very much
good. To secure the best results there
should be a clause in the act prohibiting
wholesale slaughter of the salmon after
they have passed over the falls. The
upper Willamette, under such con
ditions would then become the natural
home of the roval chinook.
Cordray opens tonight with the new
melodrama, "Blow for Blow." It has
an intricate and well-constructed plot,
abounding in interesting situations and
thrilling climaxes. There is also a fine
vein of comedy running through it.

Shortly after dusk Saturday evening,
as one of our citizens was eitting in his
office closing his day's work, the door
was suddenly opened, and confronted
by two hard looking characters he was
ordered to turn over his valuables, and
before he could move or even call for
assistance, a pair of arms seized him
round the neck and held him in a cling
ing embrace while her accomplice" rifled
his pockets. They .fortunately (for
themselves missed the pocket which
contained his purse, fearing,' perhaps,
that it might contain a pistol ; but they
secured his watch and chain. . The par
ties are known, and if the articles taken
are returned no questions will be asked.
The citizen does not object so much to
embraces : but when they result in a
loss of valuables, with no return but a
mitten, which waa inadvertently left
behind, he thinks he should remon

Let's reason tqgether. Here's a firm,
one of the largest the country over, the
world over ; it has grown, step by step,
through the years to greatness, and it .
sells patent medicines ! ugh ! "That's
enough!" Wait a little. This firm
pays the newspapers good money (ex
pensive work, this advertising!) to tell
the people that they have faith in what
they sell, o wiucfc faith that if they can't
benefit or cure they don't want your
money. Their guarantee is not indefi
nite and relative, but definite and abso
lute if the medicine doesn't help your,
money is "on call." Suppose every sick
man and every feeble woman tried these
medicines and found ' them worthless,
who would be the loser, you or they?
The medicines are Dr. Pierce's "Golden
Medical Discovery," for blood diseases,
and his "Favorite Prescription," for
woman's peculiar ills. If they help to
ward health, they cost $1.00 a bottle
each! If they don't, they eott nothing!
