WITH THE BEEKEEPERS.
There is a rumor .in circulation
to the' effect -that Edwin Stone's
death was not v occasioned by a
murderous assault. This theory is
that in retiring Mr. Stone hung
his coat in such a manner' at the
head of the bed that it caught fire
after he had fallen asleep. Then
the bed clothes were ignited and
Mr. Stone was burned quite badly
before he awakened . Struggling
and half suffocated, he fell out of
bed, injuring himself still further
and overturning the burning lamp.
This .may be true, but it scarcely
explains some rambling talk that
he is credited "with during a half
lucid interval. Still, this may be
the correct theory. ' ?

Death of O. A. C. Regent.

Last? Thursday morninsr Mr.
Church,' while walking from his
hotel ' to the depot in Salem,
where he was attending business,
slipped and fell on a trestle.
In falling his jawbone was brok-
en ana ne received, internal in-
juries He was at once removed
to St. Vincent's Hospital for
treatment, and for a time it. was
thought he would soon recover,
but internal complications arose
and he died at 8:30 Sunday morn
ing. Mr. Church was aged 74 years
at the time of his death and was
widely known in Oregon, having
been an active business man -for
many years. He was reputed to
be a shrewd politician, but never
held office. He was an adherent
of republican principles, He was
born at Hunter, oh the Hudson,
N. Y., in November, s1830. In
1855"he went to California, and
came to Oregon in 1860. Since
then he has been a permanent
resident of the state and engag
ed in business in various parts
of Eastern Oregon.
He engaged in mining opera
tions immediately after coming to
this state, but went into the mer
cantile business in 1881, becom-
a member of Bear, Church & Co.,
at Island City, near LaGrande.
Later he extended his operations
to Enterprise, Waillowa county.
Mr- Church made LaGrand
his home- and the funeral wil
occur there today. His only
suryiving relative, aside from
sister who resides in Dover.
Tenn., is a son, W- J- Chu.ch
who was with his father at the
time of his death. Thus, Ore
gon loses another of her rugged
pioneers a man 'of value to his
community and the state gener
ally. OAC will also " feel the
loss of a loyal friend as Mr.
Church was always '. an earnest
supporter of the college. He
was on two committees at OAC
the college and state committees,
being chairman of the latter.
