been having trouble also. Hood River
Work has been suspended on the con
struction of the Columbia & Southern
railroad for the season, after the track
has been laid from Wasco, the 1897
terminus, a distance of ten miles to
Moro. Over 200 men were employed on
the grade during the season of 1898, and
the total length of line thns far con
structed is twenty-nine miles sooth of
Biggs, the junction with the O. R. & N.
The cost of construction of this sec
tion is estimated at $60,000.
Capt. Lewis has returned from Hood
River. Although the weather was such
that it was impossible for the people to
tarn out to listen to the lectures, tbe
captain is not discouraged with bis trip,
but reports a pleasant visit with friends,
part of tbe time being spent at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. C. ' G. Roberts. He
leaves Tuesday night for Waeco, where
he will lecture on Wednesday evening.
No doubt the accident which occurred
on Union bill last night will somewhat
dampen the ardor of coasters for a time;
but it will probably not last long, for
personal experience is tbe only teacher
whode precepts are heeded. Tbe pleas
ures which require the most daring are
always the most attractive to as, and
tbe rarity and shortness of tbe coasting
season causes us to forget tbe mister
tunes of others.
Tbe treasurer has jast made a warrant
call for something less ' than $3000,
which is a rather unusual occurence for
this time of year, bringing the warrants
to less than four years to rnn, whereas
they have hitherto ran from foar to
four and a half years. Warrants now
readily sell at their face value at six per
cent, interest, but not long since
they sold at a discount drawing eight
per cent., thereby showing the good
financial condition of the county at
the present time.
The last official act of Secretary Kin-
caid, it is said, was the allowance in
favor of himself of a warrant carefully
and formally drawn on the state funds
for the sum of $90, representing a claim
for subscription to the Oregon State
Journal, of which Mr. Kincaid is owner
and managing editor, from October 1864
to December 1898, fnrniehed tbe state
library. And so even the state of - Ore
gon was among tbe list of delinquent
subscribers. Certainly tbe state might
have paid up in wood, pumpkins, or any
old thing so it might not be numbered
among tbe transgressors.
A large number of young and old
gathered at the Congregational church
last evening, and . soon four large
sleighs were filled with tbe merry
party, who after driving around the
city for some time, made their way to
the Roberts place on Dry Hollow. - Tbe
sleighing was good and the crowd lively,
which was sufficient to ' make tbe even

A company of good actors is promised
with "On the Suwanee River," which
comes to the ' Vogt opera house next
Monday evening, January 16th. Wil
lard Newell, who takes tbe part of
Caleb Croc, the miser, has one -of the
most difficult parts in tbe play and
acquits himself with distinction. His
make-up is natural and his impersona
tion is without exaggeration orweaknees
in any particular. The play is a story
of the nnhappiness of two loverB for
whom the machinations of tbe covetous
Croc make difficulties seemingly in
surmountable. Dora Clayton , is made
blind by tbe murder of her step-father,
Colonel Clayton, and Frank -Clayton
looses his reason by the shock of the
same crime. Their recovery and tbe
death of Croc leaves everything peaceful
and happy. During the play numerous
specialties will be introduced by the
Fountain City Quartette, Stella Mayhew
and Fred Truesdell. A .carload o:
special scenery will be nsed. in tbe pre
sentation. . '

Bztn Freight Train Rons Into Another
Causing a Wreck.
This morning about 1 :30 o'clock a
collision between freight, trains caused
a wreck at Celilo. It appears that No.
23, .a west-bound freight, stopped at
Celilo to set ont some cars, leaving a
portion of tbe train east of that place at
a whistling post.
An extra freight train made its ap
pearance and tbe engineer failing to
hear the torpedo signal, ran into the
caboose, completely demolishing it.. The
engine was also damaged considerably,
and one car' smashed np. Fortunately
no one was injured.
Passenger train No. 3, west-bound,
was delayed about four hours in con
sequence, reaching here about 9 o'clock.
During tbe morning the wrecker was
sent out from this place with a force of
men wbo have been engaged in clearing
an the track, and No. 1, which arrives
here at 3 :20 was on time.
First Coasting; Accident.
With the joys of coasting, each year
rings also its accidents, and there is
scarcely, an exception to the rule that
some one mast suffer from bones broken
while going down on tbe "bobs." Yes
terday the first accident of the year oc
curred. Ivan Gibons, the 14-year-old eon of
Ralph Gibons, was one of the occupants
of a large bob sled which was going
down Union cut at a rapid rate, when a
sleigh started np tbe hilkThe boy wbo
was gniding tbe sled, steered it to one
side, but not far enough for all of his
passengers to escape encountering it,
and I van proved to be the unfortunate
one. As tbey passed, bis left leg caught
in the runner of tbe sleigh, and two
bones , were broken about six inches
abova tbe ankle,
His companions at once took bim
to his borne, a block distant, and Dr.
Logan, wbo was called, reduced the
fracture. ' He is now getting along as
well as could be expected.
Woolgronrers' Mending- 24th. .

Is desirous of meeting with tbe sheep
men relative to the proposed leasing of
grazing lands next summer. .
Tbe interior department has called
upon Capt. Ormsby tor a report in this
connection, and before rendering it be
wishes to ascertain . the views of the
sheep owners with regard to tbe pro
posed change. This matter is a very
important one, as the grazing question
has been a perplexing one ever since
tbe alpine hunters in tbe East and in
Portland have assumed jurisdiction of
the sheep and sheep men also.
The government seems disposed to
treat all classes fairly and to this end
gives the wool growing interest an op
portunity to be beard before any defin
ite plan is determined.

"On the Sawanee River," which
comes to the Vogt opera house on next
Monday (January 16th), tells a story dif
ferent from the usual rnn of melodrama.
The blind girl, Dora; the witless Frank,
and Caleb Croc, the miser, are three
characters rarely introduced in a play.
Willard Newell is the villain of the vil
lainous, grasping, sneaking miser of the
very life. It is pronounced a fine char
acter study, repulsive but true in every '
word and movement. Stella Mayhewas
Aunt Lindy, is a living picture in walk,
talk and gesture of the old black mam
my, familiar in the South, while the
other members of the company are
equally adept in their parts.' The scenic
eqnipments.are taken from the pictur
esque shores of the old Suwanee, and
the various scenes, of which there is an
entire carload, are assuied to betrue to
the very life of the country around thts

"On the Suwanee River," it described.
as a new southern comedy drama. It
appeals to all classes of theater-goers.
There are many novel developments inr
tbe plot, and the greatest advantage has
been taken of the possibilities for tbe
scenic embelishments. The company is
a good one, all being equally well adapt
ed for their respective parts, and in
cludes such favorite players as Polly
