recently comes back with the same en

The river, which has been at a stand

Agent Cowan came in from the Warm
Springs yesterday. He reports his

perous, telling us of one Indian who had
sold a band of sheep a day or two before,
getting $4322 for them, and who has
some 38,000 pounds of wool to sell.

Editor Ireland, of the Moro Observer,
estimates the wheat crop of Sherman

would make it this year 3,400,000 bush
Patricio McNeil, our own "Pat," read

The trip down the Columbia on a hot
day is a delightful one, and the indica
tions now are that the weather ordered
up for next Sunday will make a stay in
to n, at the least, uncomfortable. The
Regulator makes the run to Multnomah
Falls, and this will furnish an opportun
ity for a day's outing, and at the same
time the money will provide funds for
the firemen's tournament.
A Heppner correspondent of the East
Oregonian says that now that Thomas
R. Lyons has been appointed townsite
commissioner for Juneau, Alaska, and
will not remain in Heppner in the law
practice ; and J. N Brown has gone to
Hillsboro to enter into a law partner
ship, and Governor G. W. Rea baa gone
East for an extended stay, there is but
one lawyer in Heppner and Morrow
county. That one lawyer who will have
such a large field all to himself is C. E
Bedfield, who camef rom Pendleton and
took J. N. Brown's practice. Probably
there is not another county in Oregon of
which it can be said there is onlv one
lawyer in it. Globe.
With the passing of the tariff bill it
looked as though all the wool buyers in
the Northwest congregated here. At
Pendleton, Baker City and other East
ern Oregon points the wool is reported
as nearly all sold, while here the larger
portion is still in the hands of the grow
ers. The Umatilla House iB filled with
traveling men, and it looks like the good
old times when yellow money was plenty
and everybody bad some of it.
Decisions in CUambers.
Before leaving for the seaside, Judge
Bradshaw filed decisions in several cases
that he had taken under advisement.
Alma L. Howe was granted a divorce
from Samuel T. Howe, and was awarded
the care and custody of the minor child.
Hester A. Howe.
The writ of review in the suit of C. W.

Filloon, justice peace, was allowed, and

In the case of Mary Davenport against
Stephen M. Meeks et al, plaintiffs were
also given judgment. The suit was
brought to have a mortgage set aside on
the ground that it was given fraudulent

money doe plaintiff. It brought up
some nice legal points. H. H. Riddell
was attorney for plaintiffs.
In the Wolf & Z wicker Iron Works
against I. H. Taffe, judgment was set
aside and new trial granted.

He Captured Them.
Attorney George Barnes, mayor of
Prineville, arrived in the city last night.
After his first greeting to The Chronicle
man he said, "I want to say to you that
I was chairman of the committee ot ar
rangements for our celebration on the
Fourth, and that what The Chronicle
said about that young man we borrowed
from yon folks to make the address, was
all right. When Mr. Wilson reached
Prineville some of the people thought
we had made a mistake in selecting so
young a man, but he hadn't spoken two
minutes when opinions began to change,
and in five minutes he had juat simply
captured the entire crowd. It was one
of the finest efforts I ever heard, and
this opinion is endorsed by every citizen
of Crook county." He told us whole
lots of other nice things about our gifted
young townsman, but we don't want to
deluge him, so refrain from repeating

OREGON MAN IS REMEMBERED.
Alaska's New Collector of Cestoms Is
Mr. J. W. Ivey, the new collector of
customs for the district of Alaska, has
arrived in Portland on his way to his
new post of duty, and today he was re
ceiving the congratulations of his per
sonal and political friends about town.
Mr. Ivey will start foi Alaska in a few
days, and in the meantime is familiariz
ing himself with many of the details of
his office. Mr. Jvey'e candidacy was the
subject of a very bitter contest at the
national capital, and that he was recog
nized out of ,all the other candidates
almost every state in the Union bad a
man is a tribute to his integrity and
worth outside of his services to the party.
The Oregon delegation in Congress was
solidly in his favor, and it was tbeir rec
ommendation that had weight, notwith
standing the United States senators who
were seconding Oregon's claims. Mr
Ivey has been represented as filing his
application as a resident of Alaska, but
such statements were erroneous. His
application was based on the fact that
he is a citizen of Oregon, and a citizen of
Oregon he intends to remain. Mr. Ivey
spent over four months at the national
capital, and is one of the "few of the
faithful" who were first considered and
rewarded. Regarding Oregon matters
at the capital or the situation in Alaska,
the collector declined to discuss for pub'
The Amount Swelled.
The amount of booty eecnred by the
Baker City postoffice robber or robbers
has been considerably swelled since the
first report, says the Democrat. At that
time Postmaster Foster could only give
the amount of cash and stamps missing
from the safe. Since that time he has
been able to learn the contents of the
registered packages taken and finds that
upwards of $1,000 from this source was
secured, making about $2,000 in all. One
package contained gold dust amounting
to $365 and was sent through the mail
by a Chinese mining company at John
Day, Grant county.
