Last Monday Willard Price, of
Kings Valley, let one of his
brothers have a saddle horse to
ride to Wren. On arriving at
Wren the brother fastened up the
bridle and turned the horse loose
to find its way home. The an
imal did not arrive home as Mr,
Price expected it would and
Tuesday morning he started out
to look for it.
He learned that a young man,
whose name we do not care to
mention, had stopped the horse,
and mounting it, had ridden the.
animal nearly to Corvallis. He
then dismounted and turned it
loose and came on to town. Al
ter loitering about town for
awhile he crossed the Willam
ette and went to the house of a
relative who resides a short dis
tance east of this city, in Linn
Willard Price, in his search,
learned the above particulars and
crossed over into Linn county
and found the culprit and
persuaded the young man to
co are over to Corvallis with him.
The young fellow stoutly denied
all knowledge of the horse, but
when in the presence of officers
admitted the whole thing. Mr.
Price concluded to do nothing
with the boy, as he had found
out where his horse was and no
particular damage had been done
him. It is hoped that the young
man will mend his ways, as this
is not the first time that he has
been the star actor in the perfor
mance of deeds that might have
caused him trouble.
Struck a Snag.
About two o'clock Tuesday
morning the steamer Ruth ar
rived from Portland. At five o'
clock, having unloaded some
freight and taken on part of a
load she left the ORIN dock
to steam up to Fischer's Flouring
Mills to take on a lot of flour.
The distance from the O R & N
dock to the mill is nearly half a
mile and when the Ruth was
about half way to the mill she
struck a snag and stove a large
hole in her bottom. Just how
large is not known, but it must
be of fair dimensions, as in about
two minutes she had swung
about and grounded on the east
side of the river. She lies very
nearly across the river. She was
in command of Captain Inman.
It was still dark when the ac
cident occurred and the few pas
sengers on board and part of the
crew were considerable exercised,
according to reports, and fancied
that they had figured in a wreck
that will make history. Aside
from other items of freight there
were fifteen tons of dried prunes
aboard. This itself will form no
small loss. The prunes belong
ed to Hugh Fialey.
Information regarding the af
fair was at once telegraphed the
main office of the O R & N com
pany in Portland and other boats
were put on the route to take
care of the freight during the
time that will be consumed in
getting the Ruth out of her pres
ent position and making the nec
