The largest run of salmon so far this
season was on Monday. Every fisher
man had plenty of fish to sell and sev
eral wogonloads were delivered to The
Dalles Commission Co. Since yesterday
morning the catch has been light. If
the strike at Astoria continues for au
other month it Is thought there will be
as large a catch as that of two years ago
at least. ,
County Commissioner J. F. 'Sweeny
of Skamania county was in the city.
Monday, consulting with Judge Miller
and Prosecuting .Attorney McCredie,
concerning the case of Skamania county
against Robert Carr,' ex-auditor and
clerk of Skamania county, in which Carr
is charged with embezzling county
funds. A preliminary hearing is being
held this week at Stevenson. Pioneer.
The suit of Donovan vs. Taffe has oc
cupietl the day at Justice Davis office
today. Donovan sold Taffe a steam
boiler some months ago, for which he
was to receive (50. Half was paid down.
The contention is as to the other half,
Taffe claims the boiler was so good and
refused to pay the $25, while Donovan
claims there was no understanding as to
the merits or demerits of the boiler, and
the money is consequently payable
whatever the shape the boiler was in.
"Coitus Dave" -was among the bestv
i pleased individuals when Mr. JV H.V
Cradlebaugh arrived in the city from
the Mt. Adams mines. He is an Indian
whom Mr. Cradlebaugh has befriended
at various times and the aborigine con'
ceived a friendship for him amounting
almost to a. passion. During the days
when Cradlebaugh was daily expected,
Jjave wore a peculiarly woebegone ex
pression and his comments took on a
most doleful tone. "Heap snow in the
mountains," observed the Indian,' with
a pathetic look. '.'Maybe can't get out
no muckamuck." The resources of the
red man under similar circumstances
'are ' limited and Dave had pictured
possible state of affairs which would have
been likely in his own case. When he
saw Cradlebaugh again, he went to the
opposite extreme and fairly dogged his
lootsteps for a day or two,, , - .
The negro woman tramp arrived i
town about 2 o'clock, but was probably
disgusted with her reception and walked
right through. She is a picturesque
looking object. She is attired in ' a very
dirty looking coat and dress and her feet
are bound up in heavy cloth. She says
the Lord revealed himself to her, telling
her to go and preach His name. She
was converted and baptized and started
on her way. She did not tany five
minutes in the city, but dropping into
about a 3-mile-an-hour gait, was soon
lost to sight in the cut past the bridge.
The same spirit possesses her so graphi
cally depicted by Gen. Wallace in his
I Otto B
Free Road to Frlnevllle.
Mr. W. H. Cook, of Tygh Valley is in
tne city, circulating a petition for a free
road to Prineville. Two tolls now exist.
At necessitates about nineteen - miles of
w road, commencing at a point three
miles this side of the Deschutes river,
connecting the two county roads, lnel
s . : a J i 1 . drrv
and $5,000. Whbco and Crook counties'
will be asked to assist in the work, and
private subscriptions will be taken. Mr
Geo. Johnson of Dufur assured him that
Dufur wonld contribute $500. Mr.
Cook informs us that Eugene - is reach
ing out after the Prineville trade and
already has a road over which lighter
train b may travel. He says The Dalles
will lose a great share of the Prineville
trade unless the efforts now - being made
to open the new road meet with success.
Last year Crook ' county' paid $8,300 in
ions, meiist nas oeen started with a
subscription ot $50 from Crook -county
men. Mr. G. W. Barnes purposes to
stump the county in the near future,
working up a sentiment for the road.
A citizen of The Dalles has also prom
ised Mr. Cook $50. -
The proposed road will re-open the
long since disused Moppin'a route, and
there are only about five miles of new
road to make, about three miles of
which requires grading. The new route
will be about ten miles shorter than the
old one. ,
rties along Union and First streets
re horrified about 2 o'clock this after
noon to see Utto iitrgleld caught be
tween the side of his wagon and the
brake, while the horse attached was
madly racing directly down the street to
the Columbia rivet. A serious accident
seemed inevitable, butJMr. Cirgteld suc
ceeded in extricating himself from his
perilous position when about, 100 feet
from ' the plunge. The horse -made a
turn to the left and ran to the mouth of
Mill creek, leaping into the water. ; The
wagon following pulled the horse down,
its head under the surface and feet up.
It pawed the water for a minute or two,
but its struggles gradually - became
weaker and finally disappeared beneath
the surface. .
Mr. Birgfeld fortunately did not re
ceive- any severe injuries. Jie pried
himself out , from his position . and
dropped to the ground, while the horse
was at full speed, but fortunately fell in
the dust. HiB clothes were badly torn,
which was about the extent of his mis
fortune in a personal way.

Editor Chboxicxb : There is a re-
ort in circulation in the southern part
the county that I am in favor of mak
ing the lygn Hill grade a toil road.
Such is not the case, and if I am elected
county judge the people interested in the
matter can feel . assured that I will not
allow any toll-roads made on Tygh Hill
during my term of office. .
note and comment" column
Portland Oregonian a writer re-l
fers to the fact that it has been the cus-i
torn in Oregon to ship apples to market
in boxes instead of barrels. In the
Eastern states the packages universally
used and approved is the barrel of a
given standard dimension, - holding
about three bushels of fresh fruit. It is
claimed - that Oregon apples shipped in
50-pound boxes are handicapped to a
considerable extent by - reason of the
package not being uniform with those
received in the same- markets , from
other places. It might be greatly to
the advantage of apple-shippers to nse
barrels instead of boxes. Several ele
ments enter into the problem, chief
among which are, of course, cost and
adaptability of the barrel as fruit
package, compared with the box ordina
rily used on this coast for that " purpose.
It is charged 'for the barrel package
also that the contents are thus liable to
injury. s Then, again, we are told that
all apples reaching the Eastern market
in boxes are rated below No. 1, and can
not be sold . at the highest ; prices, no
matter what their condition.. It is
claimed to be a rale of the trade that all
apples rated as No. 1 must be in barrels.
The cause of the difference in custom
probably lies in the fact that the Oregon
fir makes up more readily into boxes
than into the barrels made out of more
fibrous woods in the East.
