the Colombia mountain, the crows are

ever before seen such "doings."

A' typographical error was made in
Saturday's issue in relation to the size
of the armory. Instead of 60x11, it
should read 60x110. The error was ap
parent on its face, but it is exasperating
to an editor, when lie is bragging about
anything to have the compositor belittle
his efforts in such a ridiculous manner.
Still the compositor is a very convenient
object of blame sometimes when the
editor makes a blunder.
A meeting of citizene is called for to

unwillingness to buy it in behalf of the

good thing, and believes the expense

Mrs.'Narcissa White Kinney made a
forty minute speech on temperance,
filled with powerful arguments, woven
together gracefully, and delivered with
a power of eloquence and clearness of
voice at once pleasing and convincing.
There was nothing dry, fanatical or nar
row in the whole address. It was broad,
practical and unanswerable. A grand
plea for the protection of the home and
fireside. Report of Mrs. Kinney's lec
ture at state fair copied from Salem
There is occasion in this city for a
society for the prevention of cruelty to
animals. There are suitable laws on the
statute books to enable them to accom

way. There -is a great deal of talk going
on in the city oer the conduct of a cer
tain expressman who mercilessly beats
his horses without provocation. It has
caused ranch indignation and threats

A Goldendale exchange perpetrates
the following: A certain man of this
place, formerly of Long Beach, who has
a gold watch, went to The Dalles to
spend a few days on business, and while
there something proved to be the matter
with his time piece; and with all the
tinkering he could do, in vain he could
not find the difficulty. So going to a
jeweler they found that a bedbug had
secured itself in the wheels 1 Fact. It
was a mystery ; to him how it had got

BACK FROM "MAZAMAVILLE.
Cradlebangh and Party Rita
From the MlnlngXamp.
The party who left The Dalles about
two months since for a small placer
mining region northwest of Mt. Adams,
returned Saturday night. The party
consisted of Messrs. J. H. Cradlebaugh
of The Dalles, J. L. Langille and H.
Ledahoff Hood River, and John McCoy,
Wesley Locke., Jetbro Locke and John
Darke, White Salmon. The trip was
laborious and slow, and was made for
the greater part of the way over snow
fields and mountains. Though only
about 100 miles distant from the mouth
of White Salmon river, they were 24
days in reaching "Mazamaville," as thy
nave designated tne camp. Jnisia,
aocut o miles irom Trout lake, about So
miles northwest from Mt. Adams, and
situated on McCoy creek. While the
camp is only about 3,000 feet above sea
level, it is In a triangular space at the
base of three mountains, whose summits
are on a level with the snow line of Mt.
Adams. To reach it the summit of a
range between the Lewis river and the
Cispus must be crossed, and here the
gold-seekers found the greatest depth of
snow. Returning, theie was seven feet
more snowfall here, than on the out
bound trip, or a total depth of 20 to 25
feet. It. will not be before July 1st that
a horse can traverse the route made by
the men. The. seven comprising the
party were therefore compelled to do
their own packing. They accomplished
this with sleds, four of them being con
structed, loaded with their bedding and
camp supplies. It is little wonder their
progress was slow. - The trip calls for
the greatest fortitude and endurance.
As regards the merit of the gold field,
little can be positively stated. There is
gold there, for Mr. Cradlebangh brought
a sample of it back in a small vial, bat
on account of the ground being so thor
oughly saturated with water, bed rock
could not be reached. Mr. Cradlebaugh
says it will pay wages, bat the area is
limited and the ground all located.
li Unwarranted Removal.

Who can fathom the mysteries of poll
tics? Civil service " reform is making
little headway in Salem. Mr. D. J,
Cooper has been discharged from the
position as farmer at the state prison for
no reason, tie nas held that position
just six months, moving with his family
from The Dalles to accept it. This
caused him great expense, that of mov
ing and refitting amounting to $500
jno Detter reason lor nis removal can oe
stated than that a Marion county man
had to have it. Mr. Cooper did his
work well. Stock are in good condition,
fences in good repair, barns kept very
neat and clean, farm implements all
kept boused, and all work kept up to
date. He is now in a strange comma
nity, oat ot tanas and with a family on
bis hands. His business relations here
are broken op and his removal to Salem
has proven a curse instead of a blessing

Judge A. S. Bennett received
gram from Washington this afternoon
announcing that the Skottowe cases had
been affirmed by the supreme court of
the United Stales. These cover a pe
riod of three or four years time in the
various trials. Beginning with Judge
Bradsbaw, they were carried to the
supreme court of Oregon, where the
judgment was affirmed, and then to
Washington, Mr. Bennett winning
every time. The corporation's attorneys
in Washington City were Senator Thur
