Miss Kate Craig is in Lewiston, Idaho,
where she went about two weeks ago to
attend the funeral of her half brother,
Richard A: Monroe, who died at Lewis-
ton Thursday, Sept. 24th.. Mr. Monroe
was well known to the citizens of The!
Dalles,' having lived here for several
j years subsequent to 1851.
Deceased was a charter member of Nez
Perce Lodge No. 10, of which he was
Worshipful Master in 1881-2. and lie was
High priest of Lewiston chapter No. 4,

tish Rite Mason. He was a charter
member of Clearwater Lodge No. 11, A.
O. U. W., in which he held a beneficiary

Richard James, Monroe, was born in
Florida, on Christmas day, 1836. A few
months after his birth, his father, who
was an army surgeon, was killed in an
Indian engagement. His mother re
turned to Boston, Mass., and a few-years
later married Dr. Craig, also a surgeon
in the U. S. army. ' They were stationed
at different points in Maine, Michigan
and Wisconsin until 1851, when Craig
was ordered to The Dalles, Or., coming
by way , of the Isthmus of Panama,
where several of his children ' died of
cholera. After leaving the service be
and his stepson, the subject of this
'sketch, engaged in the drug business at
The Dal.es. In 1855 Mr. Monroe volun
teered in Company B, 1st regiment
Oregon Volunteers, and served in the
Cayuse war until its close, and also in a
campaign against the Mormons in Utah.
From 1860 to 1867 he was engaged in
freighting and merchandising in various
sections contiguous to Lewiston, coming
to that place as early as 1856. In 1867
he went into the drag business in Lewis
ton.and in 1871 be was appointed register

dents Hayes and Harrison and in all
served about eighteen years in this post
tion, longer than any other official ever
served in this department of the govern
ment. He was a member of the last
Idaho legislature and had served several
terms as mayor of the' city of Lewiston.
On account of bis death the pnblic
schools were adjourned and the teachers
and pupils attended the funeral in a
There was never yet a political cam
paign bnt that some comical stories were
told and The Chronicle can vouch for
the truth of the following: -
The other day a well known rancher
with a stump leg drove into Hood River
and he was whooping it up, for Bryan.
In the exumberance of his joy, he
elevated the wooden stump above the
dashboard and waved it to an admiring
crowd as he crowed for his champion.
A grizzled veteran across the street was
sitting on a chair reading the Oregonian,
his feet on a level with his bead, and
resting against a lamp post. . Down came
the fore legs of his chair with a jar that
shook the sidewalk, and over the top of
the paper peered the stern gray ' eyes,
which snapped their indignation through
the glasses, as he shouted "That's right,
you poor fool, shout for the party that
cut your leg off!"
Sheriff Driver was puzzled , the other
day to make out whether a man was
crazy or just playing it. . He had about
decided that his mind was all right,
when he chanced to ask him who he was
going to vote for. "Bryan," said the
poor fellow. "Crazy as a loon," was
Driver's next comment. He sent for a
physician to make the examination, and
sure enough the fellow was found to be
7i on compos mentis. He is in Salem now.
County Clerk Kelsay. is a Republican
ever ready so champion Kepubucan
principles. He was never "knocked
out" until the other day when talking to
a Populist who was shouting for the re
storation of the silver dollar, Kelsay
asked him to explain himself. What
did he mean by "restore."
"Well," said the Pop, "suppose I take
10 bushels of potatoes out of my celler.
and th'e next day I put them back.
Ain't that re-storing them?" Kelsey
