A Boy Killed by a Falling Tree.
A strange and fatal accident occurred near
Lebanon on last Sunday afternoon, resulting
in the death of Clifton, son of Mr. J. Q.
Reed, a bright lad of thirteen. It seems that
the boy left his homo on horseback about 1
o'clock on Sunday afternoon, with the inten
tion of going to Lebanon, four miles distant.
At 8 o clock on Monday morning he was
found, about half way between the twe
places, he and his hoise, both dead, crushed
by a tree which had fallen on them. The
tree was an old dead one. abont. three feet ia
diameter, without any branches thereon, and
broke off about twelve or fifteec feet above
the ground. The wind blew quite strong at
times on Sunday, and the tree being old and
rotten, doubtless snapped without giving any
warning. Only one person passed the spot
after tho accident, on Sunday, and that waa
about uusk, aud he rode around the end of
the fallen tree without observing anything.
A jury was summoned and an inquest hefil
by Mr. G. W. Smith, justice of the peace,
and a verdict was rendered in accordance
with the facts. The remains were brought to
Albany on Tuesday morning, and were in
terred in the cemetery here on the same af
ternoon, the funeral services being conducted
by Rev. S. G. Irvine.

The large iron ship Derbyshire, just
finished loading at Astoria, is one of a class
which we claim, says the Aetorian, is cheaper
to be loaded at Astoria than at Portland.
She has been loaded entirely at Astoria with
wheat and flour, and now draws twenty-twa
feet aa ready for tea. ,
The ship has been charged a wharfage here
of twenty-five cents per ton, amounting to
the sum of four hundred and eighty dollars.
This charge, it is claimed, is an unreasonable
and unwarranted one, not customary at this
port nor.at Portland. As the dock that the
ship has been loaded at is owned and con
trolled by a Portland company, it is thought
that the exaction of this charge is a direct
thrust at Astoria's shipping, a thing gotten up
to discourage any other vessels in the future
chartering for Astoria loading.
There have been quite a number of vessels
loaded entirely at Astoria this season prior to
the Derbyshire. Amongst them may be
named the Lanarkshire, Glenperis and Scot
tish Bard. None of these vessels, we are
told, have been charged any wharfage. The
wharfage has been charged, as ia the custom
at Portland, to the shipper and not to the
