. The Pendleton Tribune says: "The
present year promises to be a most pros
perous season for agriculture in Eastern
Oregon. Our rolling hill lands have re
ceived moisture enough for an excellent
crop of grain, and as the cultivated area
is being nearly doubled year after year,
the season of 1893 promises to excel all
others for its abundance and plenty."
The same can be said of this section of
the state. There never has been as ex
tensive preparations made in any for
mer year as ia being done this seasorf!
Thursday evening a number of the
neighbors of Mr. and Mrs. G. L. Phillips
" gathered at their residence to welcome
D. C. Herrin, while absent a few days
ago across the river, was a witness to ' a
horrible murder, which was yet not a
crime, according to the lax statutes of
Oregon. The details of the tragedy:
were told by Mr. Herrin to a Chronicx:
reporter this morning. While passing
tent near Sugar Loaf on the Washingtori
side of the- river, a fearful commotio!
was heard within. It sounded as if an
infernal battery was at work, while
human moans and at times- louder
shrieks were mingled in the din. There
were evidently confederates in the pTo,
for there were posted on the outside three
women who were placed there on watcE.
He was about to go to the rescue when
companion told him that an Indiafi
woman was dying inside, and that a
medicine man and some more bravelj
a ' - i . ev a. i . -1 -. M
were trying to ueai on me evil (spirit
which was within the dying woman.
The M. D., attired in feathers and beads,
was prostrated on the floor and moan
ing, and the braves were.beating a tom
tom accompaniment. The woman's life
might have been saved, but she could
hardly "have survived the unearthly
yettiug and noises winch, were given as
an ante-mortem reqnjeni.

.Many inquiries have been made about
the portage road across the river, ihat
the status of affairs now is, and whether
o? not" it) is to be built, at all.' -The
Chbonicls can inform its readers asto
the former, but no one but Paul Mobr
can tell whether it will be constructed
or not. From the hurrah made about
it during the session of the Salem legis
lature it was supposed by many that it
was to defeat the Raley bill, and really
nothing has occurred to make such peo
ple change their opinion; An office was
engaged, and a civil engineer installed
therein, hut as far . as any results are
concerned, it may be assumed that he
was a figure-head, and a sorry one at
that. Paul Mohr himself professes in
difference as to what people may think,
and his brother, who has been a promi
nent figure on our streets for some weeks,
says that Paul is riot apt to be prompt,
having telegraphed when he would ar
rive in Seattle on one occasion and not
arriving until three weeks later.- Those
who live longest will know the most, but
it wonld appear to those who are best
informed that the project is very
As aegards the condition on the road
at present, little has been done lately,
and the total expense could be covered
with a small sum. There are three miles
of road already built from Columbus this
way, at the terminal of which is a small
gable-roofed house. For the next five
or six miles is a stretch graded for a
roadbed, and from there to Crates Point
are set elope, stakes. This'' last is the
only work done recently.
This road might be pushed through
in three- weeks, for . aught anybody
knows or cares, but as "Paul Mohr is
given credit for some shrewdness, and
as the road, if built, would be of no
benefit whatever unless there was some
boats on the river above the dalleB, it is
probable that when the road is to be
built in good earnest, we shall hear
something about' some boats being built
on the upper river.

Some time ago Colfax improved her
water' works by inaugurating a better
system of operation. The work was
done under the supervision of Pendleton
engineers.' The ' result was so satisfac
tory that the city authorities will, as
soon as the water works are entirely
completed, dispose of the fire engine
tand do away with the $2,500 to $3,000
Vannnal exnense connected therewith.

I -was on the police force there at the
time and was walking up Market street
about 8 o'clock in the evening, -when all
at once .1 heard a deep rumbling noise
like distant thunder. The ground trem
bled and swayed under my feet so. vio
lently that I was unable to take a step.
The first shock was closely followed by a
succession of others, and for jusMifteen
minutes I stood in one spot, un&ble to
move out of iny track. I couldn't even
fall. Once or twice I started to fall,
when the earth made a lurch in the
other direction and I stood upright
. "The next morning," continued Mr.
St. Cyr, "the city of San Francisco con
tained several hundred acres of real
estate more than was shown on the
map". The bay had recedtd nearly a
quarter of a mile during the night, leav
ing every ship in the harbor-high and

made a rush to lock the door. Bu t lie

charged Ccronado with obtaining money
under false pretenses, came up before
Justice Schutz this morning; -and, on
the motion of District Attorney Wilson,
was dismissed and Corodado set at lib
erty. It appeared that Coronado had
borrowed $2.00 from Skibbe, showing a
receipt for a check that he had deposited
with .French & Co., for collection, and
relying on the receipt, Skibbe advanced
the money, and then had Corodado ar
rested. But as it is no crime to have a
genuine receipt from a bank, nor to bor
row money, tbe court did not see hia
way clear to a committal.
