LOOK OUT FOR BURGLARS.
Burglaries and thieving have 'been
common in Irendleton, Athena and
Walla Walla arid nil towns in these
parts during the past month. In Pen
dleton, only a few have occurred and
the vigilance of the city police officers
has kept down the number of cases
there. But Athena suffered no less than
half a dozen last Saturday night, Walla
Walla had . another , case Wednesday
night, and all the towns appear to be
infested with a gang of (lawless charac
ters such as go the rounds every fall in
this oountry-and were due here several
The advance guard began by stealing
grips and bundles from the cars in Pen
dleton and Walla-Walla, says the East
Oregonian, and about one dozen cars
were reported robbed during one week a
month ago. Rewards have been offered I
in-some cases. Business men should j
take care to secure their places from the
burglar "by barricading the doors more
than usual and the people should see
that their dwellings are locked and no
opportunity given for the thieves to
break through and steal. The Athena
robberies' constitute, a rather -remarka
ble instance. It is reported . that six.
stores were entered during one night
and all the money taken from the tills.
But little merchandise was taken, only
articles that could be worn with little
danger of detection were stolep. Sheriff
Houser and his deputies have the Athe
na case, in charge, but no clues, have
been found. La Grande Chronicle.
MTrHenry A. York was a passenger
for Hood Kiver7on the Dalles City this
morning. 'He took with him the stock
for a drugstore,1 which he will -open for
business this .week. He has lived in
Hood River valley since boyhood and
has a Jiost of ' friends there. That he
will get a good share of the business of
that thriving community is, therefore,
assured. ; Although his will be the sec
ond drugstore in our neighboring town,
the rap id growth of that wonderful
region will assure, plenty of business.
Already the valley contains a population
of 2,500, and from the rate of increase in
the past year, by -the end of 1898 its
population . will be double that sum.
His many friends here wish him abun
dant success in bis new field.
