jurymen asserted the damages at $750,

party to the suit seems willing to try a

eays it was funny to hear the arguments
made, which tended to convey the idea
that there were tons and tons of fish to
be hauled to the railroad every day in
the year, and that "trains or boats"
would be running over the boat railway
eo close together that a wagonload of
fish could not be hauled over it without
I danger of being run over.
The facts in the case are that the bulk
of the fish are caught at The Dalles
within ten days, and that the whole fish
ing season there lasts only about a
month. As to the boat railway, per
haps Mr. Seufert may live long euough
to see a boat pass over it, and perhaps
he may not; but it will be a long time
before there is one boat per day passing
up and down over the proposed boat
railway. However, this probably cuts
no figure in the amount ef damages

The chief business before the city
council Saturday evening was the ap
pointment and confirmation of marshal,
but the meeting was barren of result.
There is a deadlock in the common
council at the present time, on the one
side the mayor and three councilinen
and on the other the remaining six coun
cilinen. Reduced to individuals, four
out of ten are determined that W. H.
Butts shall be the next city marshal,
and six of ten are for Borne one elee.
' The first business before the meeting
was a petition from Mr. J. M. Patterson
that the council fix a rate of $3 a night
or $15 per week for shows in the armory
hall. Referred to the finance committee.
After the disposal of this business
there was a momentary silence, broken
by the mayor, who stated the object of
the meeting to be the selection of a mar
shal. He said he had been unable to
make any appointment except the one
he bad heretofore made, and hoped the
council would take another ballot and
make the confirmation. Of all men in
the city Butts was the ideal man in the
mayor's estimation who could work har
moniously along with him. He should
like to have his choice respected, be
cause he is in a great meaeure responsi
ble for the marshal's actions ; whatever
mistakes the marshal makes is treasured
up against the mayor who made the

How the Jury Reached a Verdict i:
- As was Btated at the time the verdict
in the condemnation case of the govern
ment against Seufert Bros, was rendered,
neither party to the suit was eatisfied,
and both were talking of asking for a
new trial. Perhaps they both under
stood then how tbe jury arrived at the
verdict, says the Oregonian.
It is said that each member of the
jury wrote out the amount of ' damages
he thought the defendant was entitled
to, and that these amounts were added
together and the total divided by 12, the
number of tbe jury, and the amount was
