At It Again.
Eugene Williams was attacked by
Marshal Maloney Sunday night and
bruised up badly about the face. The
provocation could not be learned, and
there were only Indian witnesses. From
all information available, Williams is
an intelligent Warm Springs Indian,
peacably disposed, and possessed of some
property. He speaks English very
fluently and attended the Chemawa
school for two years. No legal proceed
ings will probably be undertaken in The
Dalles, but it is reported steps are being
taken to investigate the matter fully.
Williams is still in town, being unable
yesterday to leave his bed.
During the prevalence of the grippe
the past seasons it was a noticeable fact
that those who depended upon Dr.
King's New Discovery, not only had a
speedy recovery, but escaped all of the
troublesome after effects of the malady.
This remedy seems to have a peculiar
power in effecting rapid cures not only
in cases of la grippe, but in all diseases
of throat, chest and lungs, and has cured
cases of asthma and hay fever of long
standihg. Try it and be convinced. It
won't disappoint. Free trial bottles at

from S. E. Ferris, dated East Portland,
says that the passenger train which
passed through here this mornfng, No.

gine leaving the track. No one was
hurt. Later news is to the effect that
the train was derailed by a cow a mile
west of Clarnie, which is the first sta
tion this side of Portland. At this
point the ground is level, and no serious
apprehension is felt as to the accident.

The commencement exercises of the
state university at Eugene closed on the
22d instant. A class of twelve was
graduated, in which were Messrs. Daniel
H. Roberts and Thos. M. Roberts of this
city. A few years ago Hon. B. B. Beek
man of Jacksonville and Hon. Daniel
Failing of Portland gave a fund to the
state university to be disposed of each
year in the way of two prizes $150 and
$100, for the two best orations pro-
nounced on graduation day. Last
Thursday, in a strong contest at Villard
hall, in which nearly 1,300 people were
congregated, a set of judges, consisting
of President Bloss of Corvallis college,
Prof. McElroy of Salem and Rev. Her
bert Johnson of Rochester, N. Y., se
lected Mr. C. F. Martin of Eugene for
the first prize and Mr. T. M. Roberts
for the second. The subject of the
former was "Should Arbitration Take
Place of War?" and that of the latter,

TheD. S. Baker passed tunnel Ho. 3
at 8 o'clock last evening. She will
doubtless enter into active service on the
lower Columbia soon after her arrival at
Portland, in consequence of the accident
to the T. J. Potter and the sinking of the
R. R. Thompson'. The Potter cracked
her shaft on her way up to Portland.
She was met at Oak Point by the Tele
phone, working the starboard engine
only, at 11:45 a. m. She was making
about 8 miles an hour. This left the U.
P. with the Reed and Queen to take the
places of the Potter and Thompson. It
will take a week to repair both steamers.
The steamer R. R. Thompson, belong
ing to the Union Pacific company , which
was sunk in 12 feet of water while trying
to make a landing at Mount Coffin, on
the Columbia, about 50 miles from Port
land will be raised at once. Two barges
were sent down to her, and huge timbers
were ordered from the Willamette Mill
company. The barges will be placed on
either side of the boat, which will be
raised by machinery and will be brought
to Portland for repairs. The Thompson
is an old boat, and has seen many years
A number of LT. P. officials were to
have come up to witness the boats go
over the falls, but the accident to the
west-bound train has probably deprived
them of the opportunity.
A Mysterious Horse Disease.
Fairview, Or., June 27, 1893.
Dear Sir: Through some of your
many readers I would ask for informa
tion in regard to the treatment of horses,
as I have lost two valuable mares in the
last few days with the following symp
toms : First loss of appetite and a dis
taste of water, a constant restlessness,
biting the sides in the region of the
heart and kidneys, pawing and rolling
and pounding the ground with their
heads, straining as in the act of urinat
ing, and withal perspiring excessively,
and lastly the legs get cold and they die.
I have opened them after death and
found them full of bots, but in no case
has the stomach been eaten through, as
per theory. I have treated them for
bots, colic and inflammation, all of no
Any person knowing a remedy will
confer a favor to the welfare of the com
munity. Yours very respectfully,
R. F. Wickham.
Drowned in the River.
About 10 o'clock Saturday night a
small boat containing W. R.Jones, Miss
Maggie Thomas and Miss Maggie Powers
was run down in the dark by the steamer
Hustler and a barge, and all parties
were thrown into the river. Mr. Jones
managed to save Miss Powers and tried
to reach Miss Thomas, but she sank too
soon. The unfortunate young woman
was 26 years of age and had been living
with her brother-in-law, JB. Schwartz,
in Multnomah addition, now Albina,
her parents being dead. Dispatch.

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
)xttle, two doses ot which completely
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
Blakeley & Houghton, druggists.
