his aid twenty-one of his neighbors and
set fire to the slash, and in about fifteen

ful accident one day last week. He says

ber and shingles were shipped by one of

O. B. Jacobson has established a place
for salting salmon on the Umpqua river,
six miles above Gardiner, where he will
smoke, salt and pack salmon during the
fishing season. This gentleman thor
oughly understands the business, and
the new industry will no doubt prove a
success and a great convenience, as the
catches are often beyond the capacity of
A barn at Coburg, In Lane county, be
longing to J. C. Goodale, was destroyed
by fire Monday afternoon, together with
about five tons of hay. The Odd Fel
lows' hall was bat a few feet from the
barn. The side of the hall was badly
charred, and it was with difficulty that
the building was saved. A bucket bri
gade did some effective work in prevent
ing a spread of the fire.
Last night at Hood Biyer, Rand &
Co.'s store was burglarized and $1800' in
notes and $175 in cash taken. The safe
was blown open, and the manner in
which the work was done shows the
work of experts. The humorous side of
the matter is that an expert burglar, at.
this time of the year should undertake
to rob a Hood River man. He might as
well tackle an editor on the 5th of July.
Last night a telephone message was
sent to the Eheriff of Klickitat county,
Wash, to arreBt Prahl, who shot Dan
Maloney, and hold him subject to a
requisition from the governor of this
state. Sheriff Stimson, who, by the
way, is one of the best officers in the
country, answered that he would start
at once, and those who know him un
derstand by this that Prahl was in bis
charge by daylight this morning.
A dispatch from Salem to the Orego
nian says : "Three boys ran away from
the reform school last night. They are
Claude McHaruue and Stanley Robin
son of Albany and Ole Auspland of The
Dalles. McHargne and Robinson were
cooks and Ausplund worked in the en
gine room. Ausplund lacked good be
havior for only a few days, and he would
have been eligible to parole. The two
others bad earned their grades and were
ready to send away as soon as suitable
homes could be found. It is thought
they have the Klondike fever."
In 1893 the run of hump-backed sal
mon was remarkably large, and in 1S94
the salmon run was the best and biggest
ever known on the Columbia. Fisher
men insist that the salmon run every
four years and that in 1898 we are to
have a big run. The hump-backs seem
to give some color to the theory, as it
has been four years since tbey were here.
On the Sound the hump-backs are being
canned, that is, the females are, but the
males are white fleshed and cannot be
passed in the market for salmon.

himself up as legislator and executive.
That he died as he did was only the
natural sequence of the life he led.
We want to go on record as saying
that Dan Maloney bad, in a superlative
degree, many of the elements that make
the good citizen, the good soldier, the
patriot. His determination, his bravery,
were simply run on wrong lines, and his
actions were the result of wrong theo
ries. Steered right, he would have been
hero; but rudderless he wrecked.

praise. The manufacturers of this Range pledge them
selves that all parts of the MAJESTIC except the firebox
and the new series Nos. 201 to 212, are made of steel and mal
leable iron, and purchasers are assured that it is aa good and
as honest as skilled labor and money can produce. If the parts
now in malleable iron were (as in other so-called steel ranges)
made of cast iron, the price could be greatly reduced ; bat the
MAJESTIC is not made with a view to furnishing extra

The funeral of Dan Maloney took
place this morning, and was largely at
tended. To the student of humanity there is
something pathetic in the death of Dan
Maloney. He was a brave, fearless,
generous man ; one whom his friends
could draw on and find their drafts hon
ored. There was nothing that Dan
Maloney owned that was too good for
his friends. The unfortunate part of his
character was that there was nothing
too bad for his enemies. Of fine phys
ique, of fearless soul, of generous, dispo
sition, Dan would have gone through
the world surrounded by friends had it
not been for that one trait in his char
acter that he considered himself the law
and the statutes; that he took upon
himself the task of regulating humanity.
He was a law, not only unto himself,
but for others. What he considered
wrong he took upon himself to right.
In a cpmmunity of savages Dan would
have been a king. Not that be was a
savage, but that he would, by the sheer
force of bis individuality, have been a
leader. He did not realize that civiliza
tion bad provided for itself. He did not
understand that the law, and not force,
governed humanity. He did not wait for
the law to carry out its coarse, bat set
The firemen's tournament is off, shot
to pieces in a dozen places. The Dalles
asked for the touruament last year and
got it. To carry out its part of the pro
gram it raised nearly $1200, and it was
proposed to bang up the usual prizes
and treat its visitors royally. For near
ly two weeks the matter has been held
in abeyance, awaiting the returns from
the towns in the district. There has
been a woful neglect in this regard. Of
the towns written to only about one re
ply out of ten was received
Yesterday the committee telegraphed
to all places" that had not replied to the
written requests to state whether they
would send teams, and when the returns
were all in it . was found that only the
team from the garrison at Vancouver
would attend. The committee, realiz
ing that there could be no contests,
nothing to be gained for the fire service
by a contest between The Dalles team
and the team from ' the garrison, very
wisely concluded to call the tournament
We regret that we are called upon to
make this statement, and only reiterate
the statement that The Dalles raised the
money for the prizes and was prepared
to receive her guests. The feast was
ready, but the guests came not. That
is our misfortune, and their loss.
The Dalles National.
A dividend of twenty-five per cent has
been declared by the authorities in favor
of the depositors of the Dalles National
bank, and today Receiver Wilson com
menced paying over the money. He
tells us there are many claims against
the bank that have not yet been proved,
and that coneequently cannot be paid.
Those who have claims against the back
should get in and establish them, for
after September 0th they will perhaps
have trouble in doing so. , The money is
ready, and inside of a month another
dividend will be paid. This shows that
the bank's loans were to the very best
class of people, for a collection of more
than $80,000 in six weeks cou'.d not have
been made in any other county than
Waeco, or from any but the most pros
perous of people.
