The mail arrived last night at 9:30.

Fishing parties are numerous and
most of them report good catches. A

This morning after the sentence was
pronounced on Maloney and Snelling,
Prosecuting Attorney Jayne dismissed
the other indictment against them.

He had pleaded guilty some time ago
to the charge of larceny from a store,

The wheat crop still looks well and is
beyond all danger. In places the wild
lettuce, or whetever the plant is that is
raising so much trouble, has crowded
the wheat out; but in spite of all pests
and circumstances, the crop will be an
extraordinarily large one. Sherman
county will have not less than 2,000,000
bushels, and Wasco county, while not
producing so much, will make a splen
did showing. -
Money In Sight.
A cyclone of silence has struck the
city. For the past few days there has
not been any business doing of any
kind. This condition of affairs cannot
last long, but with nearly all tne rail
road employes idle and the farmers busy
at home getting ready for harvest it
makes it temporarily pretty rocky. As
soon as some transportation route is
open so that wool can find a market
things will get better here. Even at
the low prices of wool there is half a
million dollars worth of that product in
our warehouses, the money for which
would come exceedingly handy and
would stimulate business.
Can't Get Their Time Checks.
About 120 men who have been work
ing for tne Union Pacific are lying idle
here, although anxious to get out to
work in the harvest fields. They are
waiting for their checks most of them
having only a paper identifying them.
The men have earned their money and
should have it, or at least the evidence
that they have it coming, for t.he time
checks can be used in buying supplies.
There is no reason on earth why the
time checks should not be issued, and
we certainly have enough trouble in the
labor quarrels already existing without
having any more stirred up for us.

A Long Trip for Specimens.
Mr. A. J. Johnson, says the Ore-
goman, agent of. the department of
forestry, who had charge of Oregon's
forestry exhibit at Chicago, baa returned
from a seven weeks' trip in the interest
of the department through Northern
California and Oregon, along the east
side of the Cascade Range. His mission
was to collect bulbs, plants and speci
mens of forest trees. He started from
the top of the Siskiyous on horseback,
and descended into' the Shasta valley,
and followed up the south Bide of the
Klamath river to the wild and broken
section where the Siskiyou, Cascade
and Sierra Nevada mountains meet.
Thence ho struck across to lower
Klamath lake, and, cruising through
marshes, mountains and lake borders,
came to Linkville. From there he pro
ceeded west by Big Klamath lake and
marsh and the Indian reservation and
over the divide to the Des Chutes river.
He followed the stream pretty closely
to Farewell Bend, thence to Prineville,
Trout creek and Bake Oven to Sherar's
Bridge on the Des Chutes, and so on to
The Dalles and Portland.
During the trip Mr. Johnson traveled
on horseback and in wagons over 500
miles, staying sometimes two or three
days in a place. The results of his trip
were quite satisfactory, for, although he
did not find so many varieties of plants
as he expected, he came across some
very rare and beautiful specimens which
he did not expect to come across. He
was much interested in the many water
plants found in the marshes about Kla
math lakes, and the edible roots used
by the Indians, among which are the
wocus, wapatoo, nunus, camas, etc. Of
some of these he made collections. The
wocus is a species of water lily, having
roots as big as a man's leg. They are
cooked and eaten by the Indians. The
wapatoo, belonging to the order of Sait
ittaria, and the camas a species of wild
hyacinth, are familiar to all old resi
dents of Oregon.
Mr. Johnson col' ec ted some 200 young
pines of. tne Lodge role variety, lie
collected many specimens of woods of
email growth, including several varie
ties of mahogany. Mr. Johnson was
astonished at the number of wild fruits
he found in thia section currants,
gooseberries, wild cherries and plums,
many-of them palatable. The only nut
trees are the chiucapin and hazel. Mr.
Johnson knows where there is a hazel
"tree" near the foot of the coast lange,
which is fifty feet in height and five
inches in diameter.
Five Honrs In s Well.
Louis Winters, a young man employed
on a farm at Rock wood, a place about 10
miles east of Portland, had a narrow
escape from drowning in an bid well
Sunday. Winters was drawing water
from the well, when the planking gave
way, and he fell into the water, which
was about eight feet deep, carrying some
of the plagks with him. By strenuous
exertions, Winters managed to keep his
head above the water until he could get
a safe hold on the timbers. Then he
attempted to climb out, but when half
way to the top, again fell to the bottom.
Several such efforts had no better re
sult. ' He called lustily for help, but no
one beard him; He made the best of
the situation, and arranging . some
planks about the well, remained in the
frigid water .for nearlv five hours, when

partly, caved in, and on investigating, j
saw Winters in the water, with bis head i
resting on a plank. J
The young man was nearly frozen to .
death, and was unable to give more
than a faint response to Mr. Steele's
calls. Mr. Steele procured a rope and
Bent for assistance. A man was let
down in the well in a basket, and tied a
rope around Winter's body, and he was
h' listed up. . When taken to his home,
Winters was nearly lifeless, but prompt
measures revived biro. He is still very
weak, but will recover. Oregonian.
Maloney and Snelling Get One Tear.
The fact that Judge Bradshaw would
render a decision in the matter of the
application of Maloney and Snelling for
a new trial," filled the court house this
morning. After an exhaustive exposi
tion of the laws regarding the effect of
newly discovered evidence, Judge Brad
shaw denied the motion for a new trial:
The prisoners were then asked if they
had anything to say why they should
not receive sentence. They each replied
firmly that they had not. Judge Ben
nett and Hon. E. B. Dufnr each spoke
in behalf of the defendants, after which
Judge Bradshaw Bpofce very feelingly of
his long acquaintance with Snelling and
his family, and the high esteem he held
them in, of the fact that he had known
Snelling ever since hia boyhood; of his
acquaintance with Maloney and of these
circumstances that rendered his duty a
sad and solemn one. In conclusion the
judge pronounced sentence of one year
each in the penitentiary. Judge Bennett
gave notice that he would make applica
tion for a "certificate of probable cause,"
in order to get a stay of proceedings.
