Oue of the prettiest and most suitable
sites imaginable fot a cemetery is that
of the Odd Fellows cemetery, and it is

Mrs. Sarah Cowan, wife of James
Cowan, agent at the Warm Springs
reservation, and who is very well known
in The Dalles, seems to be a woman of
more than usual will power, and one
who is not-going to part with her home
unless compelled to. We only hope
she may be able to retain it, though the
prospects dp not look bright at present.

A number of our Democratic citizens
were much disappointed today, the late

their going to Portland to attend the

It begins to look as if the river is rising
from appearances at the D. P. & A. N

moved to the east of the dock, and the
lower part of'the slip is being taken up
and piled near the office.
Word was received yeBterday, by her

The passengers from yesterday after
noon's train arrived in the cjty about 6
o'clock this morning, the wash-out at
Rawlins having caused the delay. To
day No. 1 has been annulled, and the
passengers who should have 'reached
here at 2:55 this afternoon will probably
not arrive until tomorrow about noon.
The difficulty today is caused by a wash
out on the Platte river at Laramie, on
the Union Pacific.
Now A. M. Williams & Co. is coming
to the front with another improvement.
They are taking out the old fashioned

Captain John W. Lewis, who recently
delivered an interesting lecture at the
O. JN. j. armory, in response to an in
vitation from the school board, yesterday
afternoon gave a brief talk to the pupils
of the high school. The lecture was
largely devoted to personal experiences
during the civil -war, and life in Libby
prison. The closest attention was paid
to tbe speaker, and all who had the
privilege of bearing him considered the
lecture a rare treat. Telegram.
Mr. and Mrs. JE. Schanno returned
last night from Salem, where the former
went to attend a meeting of the horti
cultural Doara. .Mr. schanno reports a
good meeting. It is intended, he says,
to move tbe office of the board from
Salem to Portland. While the con
tinued showers during his stay prevented
much investigation of the fruit orchards,
Mr. Schanno thinks from all he gleaned
while there that the injury to tbe fruit
in the Valley is more serious than in
The latest scheme to swindle farmers
being worked is the collection of a "war
tax" from the ignorant class of agri
culturists. The swindlers travel singly
and when they have selected their
victim they present their authority
consisting of printed blanks, receipts
and a printed copy of a purported
reyenue law requiring farmers to pay
a certain per cent on tbe value of their
property for war . tax purposes, alter
which they proceed to collect - whatever
amount they; are able to get from' the
farmer. ' -
There is one sort of rubbish which
even the long sweeping dress trains can
not succeed ' la ridding bur streets Vf;
and that is the scraps of paper which are
con tin ually thrown ; broadcast thro ugh
oet them. As we have repeatedly said,
it fB these etnall matters which give a
reason why each lot should not be kept
in perfect trim, and tbe place be made
a garden instead of a tomb.
Since Supt, J. D. Lee took charge at
the penitentiary he has devised a way
of giving fresh air and exercise to the
three female piisoners. On fine days
the three women accompanied by one
guard, are permitted to spend a few
hours walking outside the stockade,
these rambles, thus far, having Seen
taken on the board walk between the
prison and asylum. Twice have the
female prisoners enjoyed this privilege,
and as the weather improves, it will be
accorded them oftner. This is as it
should be. The sun shines for tbe nn
just as well as the just; If 'twere not so,
how few of God's creatures would en
joy the warmth of its rays. It eeems
terrible to contemplate these female
prisoners having been eo long deprived
of outdoor exercise.
With a persistence whiah is unac
countable, tbe old Ubinamafti each year
plants a vegetable garden fin the beach

most as often, just aboui the time the
vegetables get so the old fellow can
make something off of hem, old Colum

as it tbey bad been planted to appease
bis hunger. No amount of persuasion
will 'convince hub that there is any
other spot on tbf globe for a garden.

- The party of .lawvers, composed of
Judge Bradshaw, Diet. Atty. Jayne,
W. H. and H. S. Wilson and Douglas
Dutur, who bad the misfortune to be in
a runaway on their .way to Condon last
Sunday, returned yesterday afternoon
none the worse tor their experience,
which they consider a lucky escape. In
stead of occurring just as they reached
Banneman'a the horses started to run
two miles this side of that place, and
scattered lawyers at intervals for some
distance, H. S. Wilson staving with the
hack until he found himself at the
bottom of a ditch six feet deep. E.

very seriously injured, having his collar
bone and two ribs broken, while he was
otherwise badly brnised. Being a large
man, he snnered m consequence tbe

Indian reservation, pursuant to a decree
of the United States dietrict court, to
co - Del her to transfer her homestead
property in Albany to the Bank of Cali
fornia to satisfy a judgment in the sum
of $6000 against the defunct Bank of
Albany, of which her husband, James
L. Cowan, was the .owner.
"The property in question was deeded
to Mrs. Cowan by ber husband prior to
the suspension of his bank, and she
claims to have made improvements on
it in the sum of $5000, with money be
queathed to her by her father. Her
husband, who now is agent at the
Warm Springs reservation, signed a
deed conveying that property to the
creditor bank, but Mrs. Cowan stead-'
lastly refuses to do so, despite a decree
of the United States court.
"Tbe strange feature of this cise is
that the federal authorities profess ignor
ance as to why Mrs. Cowan was brought
here, unless it is to coerce her to sign a
paper, which in tbe present status of
tbe matter is entirely unnecessary.
"Under a decree issued by Judge Bel
linger, the property claimed by Mrs.
Cowan was sold bv the United States
marshal and bought by tbe Bank of
California, the only bidder at the sale.
The marshal executed a deed of the
same to the purchaser, according to
law, which provides that in case a
transfer is not made of property within
thirty days of the issuance of tuch de
cree the marshal's deed shall operate'
the same as a regular conveyance.
"In view of this, it is difficult to un
derstand why Mrs. Cowan should have
been brought here. The court has noth
ing more to do with her. But , the fat.
is, as ttated by a prominent attorney
today, that she is here undet rule of
practice of the United States supreme
court, which authorizes her detention
by the United States marshal until she
complies with the decree of the United
States district court.
"The rule does not designate the man
ner in which she shall be detained, so
tbe marshal has placed her in the keep
ing of ber married daughter, Mrs.
Meikle, on the East Side.
"As Mrs. Cowan is determined not to
sign away her property, ber absence
from the reservation may be indefinite."
