James McCarn was drowned Tuesday
morning in the Columbia river near
Celilo. He had lost his footing in some
way and fell over the steep bluff. He
was seen for a long time battling with
the strong current, but nothing could be
done to save him, and after a while the
poor fellow was seen to sink to rise no
more. The deceased was a young man,
but so far as can be learned, had no
relatives in this vicinity.
Frank F. Miller, a "fakir," has "done
up" the people of Baker City with an
advertising scheme. In The Dalles, the
merchants are sharper, and goodness
knows how long it has been since these
birds of prey have done any business
here. They patronize the newspapers
pretty well, and realize benefits that are
tangible. They are "on to" the hotel
card and like schemes and wisely refrain
from having anything to do with them.

This morning's west-bound passen

all day. It passed through here on
time, made its usual time to Mosier, and
had proceeded a mile and a half farther
westward when the engineer noticing
the glimmer of a fire ahead, slowed
down, not being able to locate it pre
cisely on account of a curve to the side
of a precipitous hill. A moment later
he was signalled by the watchman to
stop, which he did. It was then learned
that about six bents had been burned
out of the bridge on Mr. Daggett's place
below the station. The train then
backed to The Dalles. It was expected
that the repairs would be made so that
the train could proceed on its way this

There are some here who like to do a

will spend it in other places. While it
doesn't affect your correspondent one

money its hardly treating the mer

business has to be done at separate
places, we say better spend the money
at home and run your face elsewhere.

Mines, Rivers and Boat Companies
Doing: Biff Business.
Frank McDermott of the government
boiler inspectors, McDermott and Ed
wards, is in the city. Mr. McDermott
lived in The Dalles as far back as 1866,
when he worked in the shops at this
point. He was the first man to run a
locomotive at the Cascades. The gen
tleman has just returned from Idaho,
where he has inspected the "State of
Idaho," running between Bonney's
Ferry and Cassalo. This is in the Slogan
country, which 1 Mr. McDermott states
is a phenomenally rich mining section.
The country is now Buffering from too
much water, caused by the rapidly melt
ing snows, more, in fact, tnan tor
twenty-five years: The Kootenai coun
try is flooded and Snake river is boom
ing. There are vast quantities of rich
ore there, a good deal of which will be
taken out the coming summer. Al
though this country is in British Col
umbia, the great cry is for Americans
rather than for English. They have
discovered that Americans'are rustlers
and workers, while Englishmen, after
securing a valuable mine, are content to
rest and let it lie undeveloped. What
they want is the fullest possible devel
opment of the country. A half interest
in one mine there was recently sold for
$1,800,000. Large numbers of people
are' already there, and business is boom
ing. The fare from Bonney's Ferry to
Cassalo is $5, and freight rates $5 a ton,
and so great is the traffic that Mr. Mc
Dermott says a boat can pay for itself
in two trips.
Postmistress In Trouble-
The Baker City Denocrat learns from
a prominent citizen of Grant county
that the quiet neighborhood of Canyon
City is considerably etirred up over the
announcement that the postmistress of
that place, Mrs. C. W. Parrish, is short
in her accounts with the government
in the sum of about $2,500. The short
age developed when the TJ. S. postal
inspector, now at Canyon City, went
over the books of the office. The lady's
bondsmen have been notified and they
will be compelled to make the shortage
good. Mrs. Parrish is the wife of At
torney C. W. Parrish, an estimable
lady heretofore, and it is the supposi
tion that members of her family have
brought about the embarrassing predic
ament in which she finds herself. It is
hoped that Mrs. Parrish will be able to
exonerate herself from all blame.
