Mr. and Mrs. W. "H. Biggs returned
on last evening's train, after having
spent six months visiting relatives in
Missouri and California.' Their first
visit was in Canton, Mo., after which
they went to Kansas City for a short
trip. They report the winter a bard
one. Coming to Southern California
they spent some time in Los Angeles
and other cities. On their way home
they remained in San Francisco about
two weeks. Altogether they have had a
delightful trip. - Mr. Biggs says Los
Angeles county is still suffering sadly for
want of rain, only about four inches hav
ing fallen this season. Much of the
fruit crop will be loBt. Mr. and Mrs.
Biggs will remain here for a short time
at least, and we trust will decide to
make The Dalles their home.
Citizens no doubt would be much
concerned were they aware that a
scorpion was killed Monday afternoon
on the sidewalk surrounding H. Nielsen's
etore; and the ladies would take to
wearing rainy-day skirts for tear of them
stealing a ride on their trains. They
are not frequent travelers through the
streets of our citv. however, and this
one proved to be a foreigner, as it
jumped from a pack of umbrellas which
the umbrella mender laid down on the
sidewalk. It is supposed the ecorpion
crawled into an umbrella while the old
fellow was on his way from Hood River
here, he having walked from that place.
It is a very large one, being about two
and a half inches from tip to tip, and is
now preserved in alcohol in Mr. Nielsen's
store. : -
Senator McBride has been urging up
on the officials in Washington that work
be taken up and pushed to secure, the
right of way for the proposed boat
ra'lway at The Dalles. lie con
sulted the chief of engineers as to just
what had been done in this direction,
and was told that for the right of way
and for the terminal facilities of the
boat railway, 323.83 acres of land were
equired. Of this amoant. up to June
30 last, title to, or right of way over
188.09 acres had been obtained. .In view
of this fact, be has nrged that the' matter
be pushed to a speedy conclusion, that
the right of way may be completed, and
some of the money now on hand be ex
pended in getting the project under way
n time to secure a further appropriation
from the next congress. -Until the right
of way is obtained, none of the fund on
hand can be expended, and congress will
make no further appropriation. The
fact that the right of way was not fully
obtained prevented any appropriation
for this project in the last congress.

A Deaf Mate Thrown Off the Track, Dot
Mot Seriously Injured.
" Another instance of the folly of a deaf
mute 'attempting to walk a railroad
track was given yesterday afternoon. As
No. 4, east-bound passenger, rounded a
curve about ten miles below town, the
engineer noticed a man on the track,
and whistling supposed he would - step
atide at once. He was astounded, how
ever, to see he made no move, and it was
impossible when the discovery' was
made to stop the train, which was going
at the rate of thirty-five miles an hour,
and the engine struck the man, throwing
him about eight feet up onto a bank. '
The train men, supposing of course he
was dead, stopped as soon as possible
and goini back found he did not appear
to be badly hurt, but what his injuries
really were they could not fully deter
mine as he was uuable to hear them or
speak to . them. They assisted him to
the train, and brought him to The Dalles
telegraphing ahead for a physician to be
at the Umatilla House. ' Upon reaching
that place, tie walked out of the car and
could not be found when the doctor
arrived. Nightwatchman ' Phirman,
however, ran across him shortly after
and took him to the city, jail, as he
seemed to have no friends and no one to
look after him.
Dr. Logan was called this morning and
fonnd that his ankle was badly eprained
and also a torn wound on his left elbow.
Further than this he was not injured.
He informed a reporter that his name
is Will Gillett, and that be lives at 61,
North First street, Portland. He had
come up from Portland Monday, to work
for a fisherman below the Locks; but
not finding him, and being told that he
had gone up the river he started in
search of him. Had about made up bis
mind to turn back, when the train over
took him. . He says be did not even see
the train, and blames no one for' the ac
cident but himself. Claims he has a
good home and that his people will
probably Bend money for him to return.
The poor fellow may thank his lucky
stars he escaped as easily as he did, as it
was positively miraculous that he was
not instantly killedT . It is feared the re
bults may yet be more serious than
present appearances would indicate.
THE BOYS TO RETURN.
Says the Latent Report Oregon's
Fourth of July Celebration.
A dispatch published in '" another
column to the effect that the soldier
boys will return home in June or July,
will gladden the hearts of thousands of
Oregon people, who, with the assurance
that their duty has been well done, now
are anxious tor their return. Portland
is - already planning a Fourth of July
parade, which would cause enthusiasm
that would know no bounds, and fairly
cause the snow-capped peaks of Oregon
to bellow iortn a . welcome such as our
braye boys justly deserve. What a
parade that would be. But would not
each citv and village who contributed
these heroes come in for their ehare, and
demand that their' liberty car be filled
with these gods of liberty, as -they
might well be termed?
When the return of the volunteers was
first talked of, the government an
nounced that - the various regiments
would be brought home in the same
order ia which they went out. . This
would make the Second Oregon and the
First California the first to come. Thirty
days is required to ' make the passage
from Manila to San Francisco. If the
first transport sails May 5tb, therefore
it should arrive early in June. That at
least part of the Second. Oregon will be
on this vessel there is no cause to doubt,
The boys will probably be in Portland
by June 15th. -
