ABOUT THAT FIGHT.
How the "Scrap" over Election Hap
pened to Come Off.
It was stated in the East Oregon
ian Sunday that Ralph Russell and
M. A. Reeves had mixed up in a fight
over politics and round up by say
ing that "liquor had something to
do with causing the trouble." In
justice to Mr. Reeves, -who does not
touch liquor of and kind and who
was not -to blame for the trouble, the
following account of the affair is
Russell, it seems, followed Reeves
around election day and in the even
ing when Mr. Reeves was giving the
'driver of a team instructions where

sell walked up behind him and
j'.hrowlng his arm around Reeves
struck him in the back of the head.
T,hen as Reeves turned to see what
the assault meant Russell planted an-
other blow over the left eye, cutting
the flesh and making it bleed con-
siderably. Reeves did not attempt
to strike Russell at all and the police
arrived on the scene about the time
of the laset lick and marched them to
police headquarters where Russell
pleaded guilty to the charge of as

Remains of W. A. Whittier Found In
the Salmon River.
From Salmon comes a report of the
finding of the body of B. A, "Whittier,
a traveling man of Portland, who
went to that place early last October
and after drinking heavily for sever
al days attempted to cut his throat
with a razor. A day or two after
ward he disappeared and was not
seen again until his partly decompos
ed body was found on a sand bar in
the Salmon river near Salmon, on
Sunday evening. The body was
found by a boy who was fishing.
Speculation has been wide as to
what became of him, but the general
opinion was that he had drowned
himself, and the sequel goes to prove
this to be the case.
Whittier is said to have been well
connected ,and diligent inquiry was
made by his relatives and the busi
ness house he represented, shortly
after his disappearance. It is said
that he was a member in good stand
ing of the Odd Fellows and the A. O.
U. W. orders.

DISEASE IN THIS CITY.
He Had Just Come In and Was
Caught Before He Had Circulated
Around Town to any Great Extent
Pendleton's pest house has a case
of smallpox. This was sent out this
forenoon. The name of the man who
has the disease, or where he came
from, Is not known, but he is a trav

back. He dropped into Pendleton on
one of the trains either last night or
this morning and was seen by sever

pox. The young fellow was told by
someone that he had better get out of
town or he would get "30 days in
jail," and he started to "get," but be
fore he got far he was overtaken by
Policeman Fee and brought back to
the police station, where Dr. H. M.
Henderson examined him and pro
nounced, that he had the smallpox.
Another young fellow was with him
and they were both sent to the pest
house one as a patient and the
other as a nurse. This is the only
case of this disease in town, although
three men were released from the
pest house recently, having recover

W. J. FURNISH'S MANLY STATEMENT.
"I have made what I deem a manly and honorable effort for
success. I now concede my defeat, but gracefully submit to the
will of the people. I regret the result not so much on my own ac
count as on account of the party and the disappointment to the

has not shaken my faith In the principles and policies of republi

tional strife, united and enthusiastic in the support of the national
administration and for the nomination and election of President

horror, waiting for the crash.
It did not come. Just before the
runaway reached the main line some
of the dangling brake gearing caught
in a switch frog and the car was
derailed. Thus slackened in speed,
the renegade staggered and faltered
while the flyer, ladened with its hu
man freight, dashed past in safety.
Then it crashed down upon the
main track and blocked the line. The
local train coming from Pendleton
last evening waited one hour at Mil

train crew of the flyer knew the dan
ger that had threatened them.
