A great many citizens of Hood River
are in The Dalles today to attend the
liquor license case of Chas. Delk, which
makes the third hearing of that case be
fore the county court. Attorneys Cradle
baugh and Esteb appear for the peti
tioners and Attorney Wilson for the
remonstrators. It is the attraction of
the day at the court house and is a
battle upon names.
Hood River has a fruit growers union,
which undertakes to secure, for a small
commission, continuous high prices for
fruit throughout the whole season, by
avoiding the flooding of any market.
Hence, while at the present time raisers
who depend upon the local market are
glad to get five cents a box for their
berries, Hood River producers are get
ting fifteen cents. The moral is too
obvious to indicate it. Imitation is
better than nothing.
In Justice Davis' court yesterday in
the case of the state of Oregon vs. Chas.
Casson, the defendant was discharged
and costs taxed to I. C. Matney private
prosecutor. This case was about that
Mill cieek road again. It appears to be
the custom out there to fence up the
county road whenever it suits an indi
vidual's convenience to do so. Mr. Mat
ney had Mr. Casson arrested for tearing
down a fence which it suited his conven
ience to place across said road.

telegraphic statement of the crop pros
pects and conditions in the state, and it
proved quite an interesting feature. In

Roses for Portland.

Wm. Abrams, a wealthy farmer across

arrangements he placed $1,300 in cash

$2,000 needed in the matter in a tin box
to keep until morning, when the trans

contained bricks in the morning. The

Judgment by a Justice.
Attorney J. L. Story filed a motion
before Judge Menefee this morning in
the case of Myers vs. Godfrey, to recover
half the value of a partition fence, to
vacate the default judgment granted
plaintiff Saturday. Attorney Riddell
contended for the validity of the judg
ment on the proposition that a justice
of the peace had no authority to vacate
a judgment once granted. He was sus
tained by his honor, and the judgment
is still in effect.

One Hundred of Them Iie From
of Salt Petre.
R. H. Guthrie, while driving in a
band of sheep for shipment from Sher
man county, camped just below the
bridge on 15-Mile creek, about half a
mile below Jas. Hurst's place. Thid
was Sunday night. The following morn
ing on resuming the drive one hundred
of them were found to be dead, and in
quiry quickly showed them to have been
poisoned by salt petre, which had been
scattered for no other purpose than to
kill them. This is the second outrage
of the kind this year, and it is high time
there was a summary stop put to it.
These sheep are worth from $2 to $3
per bead, and there is no other way
to get them to market than to drive
them along the public highways.
It is presumed that ranchers are afraid
the grass will be destroyed and adopt
this method to stop the practice, which,
of course, is impossible. A reward
offered by our county officers might do
much to stop this unlawful practice, for
if continued it will lead to serious
trouble, possibly loss of life. No sheep
owner can submit to such outrages as
Insurance Companies Retaliate.
The genernl manager of the Pacific
Insurance Union has. notified all policy
holders that an additional tax of 10 per
cent will be charged to cover the addi
tional hazard created by the Oregon pol
icy law. Many reasons are ascribed for
this action. The principal one is that
fire insurance companies have been los
ing money in tNe United States, partly
because of such legislation as the valued
policy law. Recently they have not
been making money in Oregon, and
handicapped by the new valued policy
law, the prospocts for losing money are
good. Besides, the insurance compa
nies have to pay a tax of 1 per cent on
their net premiums, $62.50 yearly on
bonds deposited with the secretary of
the state, $5 for a certificate that the
bonds are safe under lock and key, $100
state license and $40 citv license. These
conditions have served to make the in
surance business rather unprofitable.
Any Way to Get Them Here.
A Seattle dispatch of the 19th eays :
The biggest seizure of smuggled Chinese
ever recorded on Puget sound was made
to-night b)' Deputy Collector of Customs
D. A. McKenzie, who rounded, up 32
Chinamen and one white man in a
Northern Pacific box-car, which had
been sealed and switched ready to be
sent to Portland during the night.
During last night the British Ina, of
Victoria, whose history embraces sev
eral changes of name, quietly slipped
into the harbor and approached the
trestle where cars are switched to the
big wheat warehouse and elevator at
West Seattle, opposite ' to and three
miles from the city. It is a lonely
place, and the steamer safely unloaded
her Mongolian freight, who, with C.
Dilloway, a white man of Victoria, were
stowed in the car. Today the car was
switched across the flats to the main
yard and sealed, but some railroad em
ployes who were near the car heard
voices, which made them suspicious,
and reported the case to Mr. McKenzie,
who forced the door of the car and jailed
the whole crowd.

Dr. M. J. Davis is a prominent physi
cian of Lewis, Cass county, Iowa, and
has been actively engaged in the practice
of medicine at that place for the past
thirty-five. years. On the 26th of May,
while in Des Moines en route to Chicago,
he was suddenly taken with an attack of
diarrhoea. Having sold Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
for the past seventeen years, and know
ing its reliability, he procured a 25 cent
bottle, two doses of which .Tompleteiy
cured him. The excitement and change
of water and diet incident to traveling
often produce a diarrhoea. Every one
should procure a bottle of this Remedy
before leaving home. For sale by
