The Indianapolis Sentinel says of the
lecturer who lectures at the Christian
church Monday night: "Mr. Davis is
one of the youngest lecturers on the
American platform. But there is one
thing particularly noticeable about him,
which older speakers might profitably
imitate, and that is the clearness of his
enunciation. He handled the subject
admirably, and pleased the audience
gathered to hear him."

became easier. Atjone time her life was
despaired of. The trouble is attributed
to the heat and to, an affection of the
spine and brain.

locks. The Skamania Pioneer of recent
date has the following:' '
The water is going down and the locks
have entirely escaped injury. This is a
tad blow to the contractors, as it leaves
them without the shadow of an excuse
to delay the completion of the work.
The money to complete the work suffi
ciently for the passage of boats is now
available,-and the eyeB of the whole In
land Empire will watch the progress of
the work. Will the work be commenced
and pushed to completion afc soon as the
river is out of the way, or will the eye
tern of dillydallying continue.

view yesterday at noon for $9,437,250,
which was the bid offered by the pur
chasing committee appointed by the
reorganization management to attend
the sale and buy the road.
The representatives of the bondhold
ers were Messrs. Marcus, .taircliiid ana
Beam an of New York City. These gen
tlemen constitute the purchasing com
mittee which arrived Tuesday from
New York. Besides these there were
Charles S. Fairchild and Howard C.
Tracy of New York. Attorneys W. W.
Cotton, Joseph Simon, J. N. Dolph and
others of Portland . attended the formal
ity of putting np the bid which was se
cured by a certified check. The party
of New Yorkers will go to Island City
and Teko today, where tbey will bid for
the Washington and Idaho railway,
which is to be sold under the same con
ditions. " " '
Whether there is a likelihood of a
change in the present active manage
ment is merely conjecture. In a general
wav it is stated that Receiver McNeill's
control has ' been satisfactory to the
bondholders, and that he will very prob
ably' continue as manager. The ques
tion of a change is agitating the O. R. &
N. employes to a considerable extent,
but none - of." the officials is willing to
diecuss the matter nntil some definite
move is made. ' . '
Charles 8.. Fairchild, who is a member
of ' the reorganization committee, was
asked, by a Telegram reporter in regard
to the Oregon Short Line and Union
Pacific interests. He said : -
"The Oregon Short Line holds a large
amount of stock in the O. R. & N., and
its interests are represented and will be
taken care of." '
; "Is there any possibility of the Short
Lino or Union Pacific again obtaining
control of the O. R. & N?"
; "The Short Line or Union Pacific Las
only certain interests in the O. R. & N
and can never again make a sidetrack of
this property." ...
"Are A. B. Hammond or C. P. Hunt
in g ton interested in the organization or
j purcnase oi cne j, x&. cc js. i
To my knowledge neither of these
gentlemen is interested in any - manner
in the present organization plan."

The Fossil Journal reports a brutal
murder committed last Sunday at
Buck horn, in Grant county, the victim
qeing a sheepman named Artman, and
the murderer a roan named Ed. Mur
phy, alias George Mooney, who was em
ployed by Artman as camp-tender.
Without any known provocation, Mur
phy woke Artman np at midnight and
fired three shots into him, killing him
instantly. Herman Frost was sleeping
with Artman, and he crawled out under
the back of the tent and ran to Ben Ire-
monger's for help. When they reached
the spot the murderer had gone, leaving
bis gun, which he had broken over the
bead of the murdered man. He had
also cut one of the dead man's legs in
wo with an axe. " .
The murderer got clear away at the
time, but was afterwards run down and
killed, as will be seen by the following
account sentns by Justice Martin of Pop
lar: "Constable W. B. Cowne of Day
ville got a warrant and started in pur
suit. They came np with him on the
John Day river on the 30th. The first
intimation they had of his whereabouts
was a couple of shots from a Winchester
fired at them from the cover of a thicket.
Here Murphy kept a posse of 20 men at
bay nntil midnight on the night of July
2nd, when he made a break from cover,
and was killed. He had gone all this
time, nearly three days and nights, with
the thermometer registering over 100 in
the shade during the day, without food
or water, and had not spoken a word.
though repeatedly called on to surrender.
An inquest was held, and a verdict of
justifiable killing was brought in."
It is supposed that the murderer was
sane. A year and a naif ago, witnin a
few miles of where Artman waa so
cruelly done to death. Jack Hamblet
murdered Ben Gammie. Hamblet also
fled to the river, and also tired on a
posse that was pursuing him, but after
dodging the onicers a few days along the
river, he finally got clear away, notwitb
standing there was and is a large reward
offered for his capture. .
