The accident at Salem resulting in the
death of an engineer and fireman has
been traced to a 10-year-old boy, the aon
of a Salem lawyer. The real blame
though lies with the person who left the

any better. The men who failed to lock
the switch did.

Seth Morgan requests The Chronicle
to announce that there will be a meet

o'clock next Saturday afternoon, for the
purpose of organizing a socialist club.
The Chronicle gladly publishes the an
nouncement. This latest outgrowth of

The argument in the case of Brown
and Maddox vs. the Oregon King Min
ing Company was completed yesterday
afternoon, says today's Oregonian.
Judge Bellinger charged the jury, and
they retired about 4 p. m. to deliberate
upon their verdict. A little before 7 p.
m. they came into court and returned a
verdict in favor of the plaintiffs. It will
be remembered tliat the case waa tried
at the spring term of the United States
court, and a verdict was rendered in
favor of plain tins, but this was set aside
by Judge Bellinger, on error in law.
The mine ia situated at Ash wood, seven
teen miles south of Antelope, in Crook
county. . The value of the mine cannot
be definitely known, but it is stated that
an offer of $300,000 lies been made for it

greater. A large amount of rich rock
has been taken out by the company,
