The outgrowth of intelligent and persistent effort ought to be
success. We are not the creatures of chance, the sport and prey of
every stormy wind that blows. Good buying; close selling, ener
getic advertising, and polite and honest treatment, will make and
hold trade. That's why we have earned, and by careful heeding we
hope to maintain, our present position. We want to give you the
best goods, the lowest prices, the most correct service and the most
complete and carefully elected stock from which to make your pur
chases. Our aim is to have an up-to-date store, and where we lack
let us know, that we may improve. Our aim is high we hope to
attain it. .

With laughing, azure eyes;

In nnughty tricks she's clever;

Yet coaxes us to tell her
She's "dest ez dood ez dold!"

The Pendleton Tribune says the branch
insane asylum injunction has been
brought and the probability is that there
will be no branch asylum at Union after
all. These proceedings are due in all
probably to the generally conceded un
wise selection made by the commission
in their choice of a site.
Ice has frozen on the slough east of
town about three-fourths of an inch
thick and will barely sustain the weight
of a person. The surface is smooth, and
if it freezes as much more tonight,
which is expected, it will furnish a Bkat

ANOTHER BAD MAN.
Hamlet Told the Deputy Sheriff to Be
Careful, as He Was a Killer
The murder of Benjamin Gammie by
Jack Hamlet occurred, as was stated, on
Feb. 14th at a dance on Hock Creek,
Grant county, about twenty miles from
Mitchell. The Fossil Journal gives ad
ditional particulars of the affray :
The men had a fist fight in the even
ing, Hamlet getting the worst of it.
After the fight Gammie went from the
dance hall into another room', and was
followed by Hamlet, who dealt him a
blow on the back of the head with his
revolver, which he followed up by shoot
ing Gammie in the back of the head and
in the baok, killing him instantlv. A
deputy sheriff was present and attempt
ed to arrest the murderer, but he had
the drop and compelled the deputy to
go back into .the house. Hamlet said
he had just killed his fourth, and told
the deputy to be careful or he would be

Physicians Recommended The Dalles
Mrs. S. L. Brooks returned last nicht
from a visit of several days to friends in
the valley and Salem. Though speak
ing in the highest terms of her enter
tainment at the homes of friends, she
could not help but observe the differ
ence in weather, saying that it rained
every day while she was absent, and
that she was elail to Bet back to the
sunshine -of Wasco county. While at
the home of Dr. Richardson, one of the
board of physicians to perxjrt nnon the
advantages or disadvantages of comoet
ing towns lor the location of the insane
asylum, she was told bv the doctor that
the physicians recommended The Dalles
as superior to an competitors in the
beauty of its scenery and location and
excellence of climate. He believed that
the commissioners decided for Union
because it had an unlimited water power
and more arable and -grazing land
in connection with the site. These rea
sons, of course, appear inadequate to us,
for those faults cannot be entertained bv
those who know the facts as they exist
here. - But a further inauirv into the
matter is profitless, now that the site
has been selected, and there mav be
much to urjre which Dr. Richardson
does not know or did not say.

The Cold Wave.
A cold wave from the northeast struck
this pection last night and the mercury
dropped rapidly until this mornin?
when it registered three above zero at
sunrise. Today the temperature has
not reached a higher point than seven
teen above in the shade although the sun
shone out in all its splendor through a
cloudless sky. What little wind there
is stirring comes from the northeast.
The next coldest morning of the winter
was over a month ago, when the ther
mOmeter registered 16 degrees above
zero. Our young people are brushing

The jury which retired at 2:35 p. m.
yesterday reported that they had ar
rived at a verdict about 5 o'clock. The
verdict was handed to Judge Bradsbaw,
Who, after reading it, passed it to Clerk
J. A. Uroseen to read aloud. The de
fendant was ordered to stand while the
verdict was read. . By mistake -Mr.
Crossen read: "We; the jury," etc.-,
find defendant not guilty. "What's
that?"" inquired . the judge sharply.
"Guilty, as charged," . were ti.e next
"words spoken by the clerk. and the
transient look of joy that arose to the
prisoner's face gave wav to the habitnnl
look of indifference that he has worn all
through the trial. Judge Bradshaw de
ferred sentencing him until Saturdav
morning at 9 o'clock.
Thenext case taken' up was that of
the State of Oregon vs. John Krier,
charged with the crime of larceny in a
dwelling. . The larceny occurred . in
Peter Fournelle's residence, about three
miles" from the, city, and comprised a
great variety of articles, it apparently
being the thief's intention to gather up
everything loose lying about the place,
without regard to what it was or its
value. The tables and floor snace in
front-of the jury and even the judge's-
piattorm is uttered with tools and im
plements and articles of wearing ap
parel, both male and female, from the
innermost to the outermost garments of
clothing worn. Fourteen jurors were
called" and examined before the panel
was completed. The state was repre
sented by its attorney, W. H. Wilson,
and the defense by E. B. Dufur. The
witnesses were examined by the state
and underwent a most searching cross
examination by the defense. The arti-.
cles were ' gone over'' piece, by piece, of
which there were a great -number, and
plaintiff was made to state where lie got
it, how much he valued it at, and what
he thought a siwash would give for it.
The line of defense consisted nrincinallv
in proving the good character of witness.
The case continues this afternoon.
The grand jury have almost com
pleted their labors, and are now ar
ranging their final - report. They re
turned not a true bill yesterday against
F. W. Skibbe for assault of W. H. W.
Watson. They previously reported a
true bill against Charles Chester for lar-
ceny in a dwelling. , '
