The wool growers of New South Wales

in a conspicuous place a placard with

in the East asking aboutour fruit-producing
ability, with a view to settle

wife of a La Grande druggist, who grew
1 up there almost from babyhood. Her
! talent seems to have been hidden while
there' and was not a matter of particular
Vpublicitv. Some of her first work ap
peared in' eastern story papers, and
afterward there were several articles
published over her name nearer home.
Mrs. Higginson's latest success was the
winning of the first prize of $500, offered
by a Boston publishing firm for the best
short Btory. .
Load of California made a strong
speech that attracted much attention in
the house yesterday, during - poneidera
tion of the river and harbor items in the
sundry civil bill. He showed that the
Southern States had received up to 1890
$60,000,000 for river and harbor im
provements.while the value of their ship
ping'was only $18,000,000. During this
time the Pacific coast, with $23,000,000,
value in shipping, had only received
$10,000,000, and of this amount Oregon
bad received the lion's share, $6,000,000,
Loud made such a good showing for
California that Hermann of Oregon at

A ball was given inMoro's hall Friday,
but the attendance was small. '
The Sherman County Musical Associa
tion'will give an entertainment on the
"Eev. McGuffey, of The Dalles, is hold
ing a series of meetings at the Christian
church at Wasco.. '
W. H. Wilson left Friday for The
Dalles and returned Monday, C. J.
Bright acting as deputy in his stead.

find lodging for the large number of
people that have been in -attendance at
Mr. Wm. Kagsdale has returned to
Moro from Monmouth, Or., where he
has been attending echool for the past
winter. . '
Owing to the excessive rains of last
week, farmers in Sherman county, re
ceived another serious setback, as the
ground was too wet to admit of any field
work being done, which was quite a loss
to the farmers, as many of them have all
of their seeding to do this spring. By
far the greater portion of the crop in this
county will be seeded this spring.
The prohibition convention met at
Moro. The following ticket was nomin
ated : For county commissioner, W. M.
Eliott, Monkland ; Bheriff, G. D. Wood
worth, Wasco; county clerk, Albert
Porter, Wasco ; school superintendent, D.
W.Thomas; assessor.Sam'l Carson; sur
veyor, Kev. G. H. White; treasurer, E.
Peoples, Moro ; coroner, Dr. I. M. Smith ,
Moro; C. J.Bright, delegate to state
convention; C. J. Bright, county chair
man; .E. G. Tozier, county secretary.
A proposition made at the meeting by
the democrats to fuse if they be allowed
to place the- present sheriff, and school
superintendent on the ticket for re-election,
was unanimously rejected.
A large number of people were in at
tendance at court last week. The case
of James N.' Pearson, plaintiff, and
James H. Frazier, 'defendant, occupied
the entire week, the case being given to
the- jury. Saturday at noon. The jury
late in the evening brought in -a verdict
In favor of 'plaintiff for $100. This case
has been pending for several terms of
court, and -will -be a relief '-to all con
cerned now that it is settled. B. S.
Huntington was counsel for plaintiff
and A. S. Bennett for defendant. Satur
day afternoon the work of empanelling a
jury in the case of State of Oregon, plain
tiff and the Douglas Bros., H. McBey
nolds and George Eaton, defendants, was
commenced. Great difficulty was ex
perienced in getting a jury, it being late
that night before a jury was finally
obtained, as it was bard to find jurors
who had not heard the case and were
not more or less prejudiced against
them. The grand jury found a true bill
indictment against the prisoners of
the larceny of a dwelling. Attorney W.
Wilson will prosecute the case for the
state, and A. S. Bennett for the defense.

The Kingsley negro minstrel troupe
gave a grand concert and ball on the
evening of the 16th at Kelly's hall. The
ball was filled with old and young, and
the acting would do credit to a more ex
perienced troupe. There was one act
on the program that is. worth mention
ing, when two prominent men of Kings
ley were caught as suckers on the same
string, one at each end. After the' con
cert the floor was cleared off and the
young ." folks .-. enjoyed themselves by
dancing till morning. ' .
Politics, bard times, and the Dalles
City rock crusher are three-problems
that the Tygh Ridgers. are trying to
solve. They would like to know why
the county judge and the county com
missioners put the farmers and tax
payers to the unnecessary expense of
paying for half of "the rock crusher when
it ia used altogether for crushing rocks
for the streets of Dalles City. The next
conundrum is, bow long are the bard
times going to last? TboEe here who
have given attention to the matter think
the hard times will last till the party of
protection has full control of county,
state and national affairs. Now, let us
make a commencement next June and
give our support to none but those who
believe in patronizing home industry.
They can always be found in the repub
lican party ; hardly ever outside of it.
There is another conundrum that con
fronts the taxpayers, and that is the
unprecedented haste the sheriff is in to
collect the taxes. I think it is very
hard to get blood out of a stone, and it
is just as hard to get money out of the
majority of the farmers at present.
