Lawler, in front of the Butcher's Ex
change saloon. Lawler held on to the
lines, and bad the team about . stopped
when he stumbled and fell. Other par
ties stopped the horses, and although
Lawler juBt escaped being run over he
was not seriously hurt.
It is reported that Receiver McNeil
will appoint Captain James Troup
superintendent of water lines, the posi
tion now held by Captain Peagram.
Captain Troup was almost raised on the
river, standing at the wheel on his
grandfather's boat, the old Vancouver,
almost before he could see over it. , He
is a thorough steamboat man, and Mc
Neil shows he has the interest of the
company at heart, in making this ap
Debs ordered a strike in Kentucky to
day, but the order was not obeyed.
The Irma came up last night about 11
o'clock bringing the mails, and left this
morning at 5.
A dispatch to the railroad boys liere
from Debs says in substance the strike
is still on and to hold the fort.
Three tons of express matter came up
on the Regulator last night, and five
men worked all night getting it assorted
and ready for distribution or forwarding.
Mrs. L. E. McNeill fell ' from her
crutches to the floor yesterday after
noon, and sustained a . fracture of the
right arm near the wrist. Dr. Suther
land attended to her injuries.
John Roop was arrested and tried
Wednesday in 8-Mile precinct, charged
with, assault with intent to do bodily
harm, the offense being the'whipping of
.his'own child. Justice Fleck dismissed
The Regulator brought np a big cargo
last night. Owing to the inconvenient
arrangement of the wharf, it takes all
day yto get it cleared. When the river
gets a few feet lower this difficulty will
no longer exist.
Mr. Laughlin tells us Governor Pen
noyer and the other members of - the
board in control of the portage road at
the Cascades, have ordered the road re
paired and the inclines rebuilt just as
soon as the work can be done.
,JThe pile driver has been at work on
the trestle across Mill creek has been
idle for two or three days on account of
lack of piling. There is some on hand

the driver to the bottom of the creek,
which makes it inconvenient.
Ed. Williams, W. K. Corson and C. E.

fishing excursion a week ago, returned
last night. They report the fiehing

Mr. Pague, of the weather bureau,
sent us a dispatch this morning giving
the weather forecast for today and to
morrow. For today he called the turn,
saying it would be fair and warmer, and
it was. For tomorrow he says it will be
fair,' with tbe exception of probable
This afternoon about 2:30 an engine
frightened a team belonging to Louis
. This morning while ye reporter was
doing some bard dipping for an item in
the sheriff's office, J. B. Crossen started .
the subject of numismatics by producing
an English coin made in the reign of
William with the three eyes in 1698. It
was a handsome coin, and according
to Mr. Crossen's very interesting storjk
of it, has a history. The coin was first
thrown on the stage by William him
self, as a slight token of appreciation of
the actor's talent ; , the actor being an
uncle of Mr. Crossen's by marriage, at
the close of a Hood River celebration in
which the actor bad repeated those re
cherche lines entitled, "Carfew Shall
Not Ring Tonight," or "Who Kissed the
Cook." Soon, very soon after the pub
lic learned that the said colatteral con
sanguinous relative of Mr. Crossen's;
had committed the crime to memory,
said relative took passage' on the May
flower for San Francisco, coming. by the
Nicaragua route and The Dalles boat
railway. Jimmy says there is a rumor
that he would have left sooner, but the
Mayflower was the first boat out. By a
lengthy and circuitous route, which we
cannot give in detail . now, the piece
finally came into tbe possession of its
present owner, who prizes it highly be
cause as long as he keeps it be feels that
he isn't broke. .. .
But this is digression, which we will
pursue some other time. What we was
going to say was that Judge Bradshaw,
who was checking up the profit and loss
on a receipt for taxes, remarked that he
had a much more valuable and exceed'
ingly rare coin, and then after exciting
everybody's curiosity by going first in
one pocket and then another for it, pro
duced a big yellow twenty-dollar piece."
A 'Wholesale Business.
Recorder Dufur had a job lot of prison
ers to dispose of this morning, consist
ing of fourteen men, arrested for creat
ing a disturbance up near the Wasco
warehouse, and charged with being
drunk and disorderly. John R'uddy and
John Hart arrested separate from the
others, plead guilty and were fined $5
each. William Drysden and Lew.
Shoren were discharged. -.Ten pleaded
not guilty, and their trial was set for 5
o'clock this afternoon.

. Mrs. Dr. Harick returned after an ab
sence of more than two months.
I. N. Clark returned to his old haunts
for a few days last week. The ravages
of time are very noticable. His hair
is almost white. His home is in Cali
fornia. He came with horses belonging
to Lou Kiton, which Kiton purchased
in lower California.
Hard times have put the people daft.
Hardly a day passes without someone
passing east or west. Some of them
have small - bands of stock. Going,
going, and seeking what? . At such
times as this the old adage "the rolling
stone" should be well weighed, for
surely now - there is but little moss to
gather, and that is better gathered
where you know its haunts.
. July 4th, 1894, is a thing of the past,
and dwells in oar memory as-a vivid
dream, with many pleasantries and a
few unpleaiantries to fix it firm in our
minds. It' was hailed very quietly.
Not with the boom of the cannon's
hoarse peal, nor from the loyal throats
of- a thousand, stalwarts. Only the
clarion notes of a barnyard solo rever
berating from cliff to cliff awoke the
July morn. At 10 :30 the Declaration of
Independence was read by W. H. Sas
ser ; also an oration by H. Luny, which
was .patriotic to the core, in iact excel
lent. In the afternoon we were -further
entertained by the Mitchell literary
society. - A solo, "You Know," by Max
Patz and Miss Stella Boadman was ex
cellent in execution.' A recitation, "In
dependence Day," by Allie Keys, was
very nicely done. Recitation, "Curfew
Shall Not RingTonight," by Rita Cham
berlain. Little Rita deserves extra
praise. There seemed to be nothing
wanting to make her speaking perfect
for one so ' young. One's heart could
stand still when Bessie had mounted to
the topmost round on the ladder in the
bell tower and looked over the street be
low ; and when she dauntlessty clung to
the bell as it swung far out into space
we could almost cry aloud for sympathy,
and when she had received the assur
ance that her lover should live there
were tears in our hearts, if not in our
eyes. A cornet and organ duet by Miss
Sella' Board man and . Frank Chamber
lain and instrumental music, songs and
recitations filled up tEe time- for two
hours. At night a ball was given,
which was the nicest that has been here,
believe I can safely say, in years.
The hall was crowded to discomfort, but
with all there was one round of mirth
and good will the entire night. These
are the pleasant things we will like to
remember on this 4th of July, 1894
The unpleasant things I will tell you.
The bitter must be mixed with the
sweet to : make the sweet the sweeter.
But doeB it?.
During the day, as is usual, someone
must try to put to shams this our inde
pendence day. This time "one man hit
another a solid lick over the head that
stunned him a ' few minutes, but noth
ing serious but arrests, if that is serious,
came of it. At night about 2 o'clock
Jim Holm an stabbed an old gray-head
ed man, by the name of Scott. In this
case only a little bad blood was drawn
Good came of that. There is one thing
I would be glad for the readers of this
paper to know that not in many cases is
it citizens of this little town that carry
on this warfare. In one case this time
it was, but generally they are bloodthirsty-
men outside some distance who
come here to show us the brave side of
a cowardly life. In most cases our men
are quiet and law-abiding. Mitchell
has the name of being one of the most
vicious towns in the state. It is not an
Eden, neither does it belong to the
suburbs ; - but it is not. so bad as tbe
name it carries.
Once more must I chronicle the going
out of a noble life. July 3d at his home
in Bear valley E. B. Allen passed on to
a higher sphere. Since he- was hurt two
years ago he has been partially par
alyzed, and for the past few months has
been gradually growing worse," until all
is over and he is at rest. . He had passed
tbe alloted time of three score and ten,
and until he met with an accident by
falling from a load of hay, he was very
strong for one oh his age. Do ' we grieve
that he has passed over the silent river
and his feet now stand on the mystic
shore of the beautiful beyond? . Do we
grieve that those chilled numbed hands
are cold andvnumb no more? Do we,
can we wish him back where sorrow,
toil and care bent his shoulders and
were silvering his hair? Oh, happy
rest to you who have gone before into
the beyond faith made so inexpressi
bly splendid! A, noble, loving, true
husband is gone; a dear, kind father is
out of our sight, but noi dead. He
waits for us with outstretched arms and
loving smile beckoning us on to a
higher, a truer life, tshed not a tear in
sorrow for his going. Let'yonr tears
fall for those that are left behind alone.
