Mr. B. K. Hollister, a brother of Dr.
O. C. Hollister' of this city, now a
chemist of Chicago, has recently in
vented a process of generating formic
aldehyd by the incomplete combustion
of wood alcohol,' to be used in disin

-The Pendleton Woolen Mills started
up in earnest Monday. Says the Tri
bune: Several looms are now running
off brightly colored goods, which will be
made into Indian robes. The carding
machines are now 'turning off a drab
colored wool which is to be used in mak
ing blankets. A large stock of the soft
est kind of wood has been run through
the machines, and now only awaits 'the
covering to be recognized as warm look
ing comforters. -Several hands ' accus
tomed to the work have been brought
into the city to enable the management
to make a satisfactory beginning. It is
very probable ; that what additional

An Indian is making more money than
anyone in town' at the present ' time.
Indian Jake's pile of sturgeon, as it lays
on the eidewalk every day in front of
the express office, ranges any where from
500 to 1,500 pounds, for which be"re
ceives 4 cents a pound. It is rather
curious that Jake's line is always the
lucky one. Our white citizens, and even
colored brethren never bring so much
sturgeon meat to the- eurface as does
Indian Jake. If the Indian is possessed
of an art whereby he can hook more fish,
he keeDS the secret inviolate. No one
has yet found it out, though they look
at bim curiously enough. Jake comes
from a fisherman's family. r His fatber
and grandfather before him fished for a
livinz in the Columbia river, and he
may easily ' possess valuable trade se
crets which the white man does not
know. ' . .
The partnership heretofore existing
between J. C. Meina and J. W. Koontz,

U. S. Marbhal Humphrey came up
yesterday to notify ten prominent sheep
'growers of this section to present them
selves at Portland 'nine days after re
ceiving notice and show cause why they
should not be perpetually enjoined from
using the Cascade forest reserve for
It is difficult to locate exactly the pri
mary spirit which is behind and urging
on to destruction the greatest industry
of tbis country, but the. facts are that
the entire machinery of the government
is being turned against the aheemen,
with a singleness of purpose seldom ob
servable in any cause for adjudication.
A haste is being shown in settling this
matter wherein its expediency is incon
ceivable. The flimsy excuse of forest
fires caused by herders does not apply,
for the season for fires is about closed.
They never harmed tbe range by feed
ing on it, consequently that cannot be
urged aa an urgent reason for their
speedy removal. Perhaps, when the
facts are fully known, it will be found
that a class, of people like that of which
the Mazamas are com posed are urging the
abandonment of the reserve as a feeding
ground in order to preserve the game
and the wilderness in which.they feed..
The government at Washington has
instructed Mr. Murphy to prosecute the
cases with all vigor. The reports of
trespass are supplied by special agents,
who are likewise urged to . forward
speedily all information possible to

The King; of Ghouls Fall, a Victim to
Two miners who have been prospect
ing in the region of Mount Hood arrived
in Portland recently and reported to the
Oregonian that the body of James
Hartley, a collector of Indian relics and
curios, was found Thursday, Sept. 3d,
by Henry Peterson, a timber cruiser,
on a small island in Dead man's lake,' in
the dense forest which stretches from
Mount St. Helens to tbe Columbia
Hartley will be remembered by many
in The Dalles as a very pleasant-mannered
man, fall of lore concerning geol
ogy and arebreology, and ever ready to
engage in such a conversation. . He was
also possessed of a rapacity for Indian
relics, and pursued , many plans to get
them in his possession, when he would
send them East. He doubtless knew
iuat where was the best market and
must have made tremendous profits by
his unusual occupation. Under one
pretext or another he secured many
stone implements and curios from dif
ferent citizens of The Dalles. Rev.' W.
C. Curtis, Dr. Sutherland, Mr. S. L.
Brooks, Mr. Carey, Miss Anne Lang and
others lost a part of their valuable col
lections through his smooth workings.
Generally he would "borrow" them for
Eastern exhibits, with a promise to re
turn. If this would not do, be would
promise to exchange other kinds of curi
osities for the Indian relics. Miss Lang
and Dr. Sutherland received - some
worthies "curiosities" in return from
him in this way. He succeeded in in
dacing Mr. Carey to part with bis for a
time by telling him he wanted to pho
tograph them, . and that gentleman
found them later in the express office
billed for 'the East by the enterprising
Hartley. But be paid dearly in tbe end
for his dishonest practices, lor at last
