Earl Wheeler, the cattle "rustler" who
was arrested on Lower Powder river last
October, after a hot battle with a sher
iff's posse, was found guilty, in Baker
City, last Friday, of stealing a cow. ' In
the caBe of Charles Sally, charged with
shooting at Ida Gilmore, the grand jury
returned "not a true bill."
Yesterday afternoon ' RichardCarlyle,
who had his preliminary hearing in the

bound over; under $200 bonds to appear
bsfore the grand jury, and as he has not
aa yet secured a bondsman, be is at pres
ent in the county jail. This seems to
have been purely a piece of spite work.
He bad a grudge against Dick Brook

order to get what he probably thought
would be satisfaction, he went -into

the conclusion that his spite was carried
too far, as he is charged with a peniten

being convicted. .

William Herbert waB on Wednesday

charge of stealing a gelding. He was
first charged with horsestealing, but the
information was pronounced fatally de
fective by Judge McDonald, and a new

A lively runaway occurred in the East
End. this morning. Wood Bros.' cart
was standing near the depot when the
horse became frightened and started to
run. At the time the driver was stand
ing alongside of the cart and as he held
n to the lines he was dragged to Wore-
eys corner, at which place he succeeded
n getting into the cart and stopped the
lOrse, a few blocks' this Bide of where the
runaway began. Quite an ' amount of
meat waa in the cart at the time, which
was scattered along the line, but outside
of this no eerious damage was done.
I BOYS AND GIRLS' AID SOCIETY.
Gardner In the " City in Behalf of
That Charitable Organization.
W. T. Gardner, superintendent of the
Boys' and Girls' Aid Society of Port
land, is in the city today transacting
business in behalf of the society. He
brought up one little homeless girl,
which was adopted into the family of
Mr. Matthew Thorburn of Kingsley,and
before returning he intends to call upon,
or inquire concerning the twelve chil
dren which are adopted into families in
this section, and Bee that they are treat
ed right, and that they want for nothing.
During the last five yeara over twenty
homeless children were taken from this
county, and at present nearly all of
them have good homes. Among them
was the little Gibson girl, whose parents
were opium fiends and lived out by the
company ice bouBe. She is adopted
into a family in Portland, and is getting
along nicely, being an exceptionally
bright little girl.
Dollie Howard, whose mother was a
woman of bad repute in this section, is
in Southern Oregon at present, and is in
good hands, who will train her up in a
virtuous manner The . three Graham
children, whose mother is dead and
their father unable to support them,
are also in good circumstances, the girls
being adopted by people who will take
the best of care of them, while the boy
is at the Indian school at Chemawa.
One of the Wolforth children is taken
on indenture Jay parties living near the
home, while the 5-year-old boy is still
at the borne, and on account of his ro
bust appearance is known by everyone
as "Punch." ' . -
Mr. Gardner will take six children
back to the home with him' this trip.
The three Atkins boys, who are some of
those who were a short time ago arrested
for stealing articles from the stores and
other places around town, and the three
Howland children, whose mother is dead
and whose father was sent to the peni
tentiary a short time ago.
They will be taken good care of while
in the home, and as soon as possible
will be given to families who wish to
While here Mr. Gardner will accept
subscriptions from anyone who is chari
tably inclined and who deeires to give
something, no matter how small, to help
the home, and anyone giving money to
aid such a cause may consider the same
well spent. -
THE ELKS BENEFIT.
Social a .Well aa a Financial Snceear--Some
Probably the largest audience, with
the exception of Saturday night, that
has attended Prof. McEwen's entertain'
ment since he was in the city was at the
benefit last night. Every seat was sold
and a number were forced to stand, as
eeats were not sufficient to accommodate
all. The entertainment was exceptionally
good, and the class was theglargest of
any evening, there being - abont sixteen

the most side-splitting were the love
ecene and the nursing scene. In the
former the professor put three of bis
subjects in a hypnotic state, and then
placing a broom alongside of each, made
them believe that they were sitting
by the side of their best girls, and the
scene that followed would have made
the garden scene in "Romeo and Juliet"
fade into insignificance. The evening's
entertainment was closed by the nurs
ing scene, which was undoubtedly one
of the moet laughable and ridiculous
that was introduced during the entire
time that the professor was here.
The net receipts of the benefit were
$101, half of which goes to the Salem
lodge and half to the lodge at this place.
It is rumored that Cascade Lodge in
tends donating their receipts to the
Boys' and Girls' Aid Society in Portland,
which goes to ehow the charitable na
ture of the society and the great object
for which it was formed.
While Professor McEwen was here he
enlightened many upon the truths of
hypnotism and mesmerism, and cast out
many prejudices against the same. If
he ever returns to this place he may be
sure of a warm reception by our citizens.
