The Oregonian says that Messrs. J. G.
and I. N. Day yesterday started a force
of forty cutters at work cutting stone for
. the walls of the new lock in the Cas
cades canal. The water is lees than
three feet deep in the lock, and if it has
not gone out in a short time the lock
will be pumped out and a force of about
200 men will be put to work building

no delay in the' work on account of stone,'
and he is anxious to have it completed
before the rainy weather sets in.
A threshing engine belonging to Poed-
temeier Bros, of Stafford, went through
the bridge over Kriese creek, about nine
miles west of Oregon City yesterday, and
the engine, driver end team fell a dis
tance of eighteen feet. The driver,
Ernest Boek mann, suffered a severe
scalp wound and a bruised hip. The
engine was wrecked, and one of the
horses so injured that it had to be
killed. The engine carried sixty pounds
of steam, at the time, and but for the
fact that the driver was able to move
himself, he would have been seriously

controversy arising out of the question
led to a special council meeting
forenoon, and the decision was reached
that the hump had to go. Air. Johnston
argued his rights eloquently before the
council, but to no avail. His reasons
were that it was very convenient for
trucking back and forth, and that wo
men with baby buggies would be less
inconvenienced than with a step'. He
answered the objection of a councilman
that it looked bad. by saying be had no'

' Henry Tennant was arrested last even
ing for larceny of a saddle on complaint
oj Alex. Fargher.
The facts in the case are that about
three weeks ago defendant borrowed a
saddle from Mrs. Fargher, stating, be
was sent for it by a friend of Mrs. Far
gher who wanted to use it. Soon after
ward the same saddle was sold to Rupert
&Gabel for $7.50 by Tennant. About
this time Mr Fargher returned from the
East and hearing of both transactions
had Tennant arrested for, larceny.
The defense we understand will be in
tricate, if the story Tennant told in con
nection with the transaction is to be
used. He claims he lent the saddle to a
friend for two or three days. The days
lengthened into weeks and still the
saddle came not. Finally a stranger
came in with a horse and saddle which
Tennant admired and he purchased
them. He then sold the saddle "to
Rupert & Gabel, when lo, it turns out
that the saddle he sold was the identi
cal one he loaned to his friend some
weeks before. This story possesses
much artistic merit from a novel
writer's point of view, but who shall say
that truth is not stranger than fiction?

upon examination eaw that the boy was.
Young Ward was thereupon conveyed
to St. Vincent's hospital, and in th
afternoon Drs. Gillespie and A. C. Smit!
placed him under an anaesthetic, an
found that the bullet had passed through
the stomach, perforating the large in
testine in three different places, and had
then lodged in the spleen, which was
badly lacerated. The wounds were
carefully stitched, but the worst feature
toward a possible chance for recovery
was the perforated spleen, which made
the case even at that time almost hope
less. When young Ward regained consci
ousness, Dr. Gillespie informed him
that he had but a few hours to live. The
boy, who had borne up bravely, received
this sad information in a calm and
heroic manner. He suffered intenselv.
but endeavored to repress the evidences J
of his sufferings, as be did not wish to i
add to the sorrow of bis heart-broken
mother, who was at his bedside, and to
whom he spoke comforting words. At
10 o'clock he died, his mind remaining
clear to the very last.
At the time of the shooting, Mrs.
Ward was at church. Edward Ward
says that ha did not know the revolver
was loaded, and his grief over the de
plorable accident is as keen as that of
his mother. Young Henry declared
that the shooting was purely accidental.
