We again enter our determined protest
against the rule of hoodlums in this city.
If we have a police force these uncouth dis

The Heppner Gazelle gives the following
account of the death of Clarence E. Pullen
who lived near Lone Rock: Last Sunday
while playing ball, Clarence E. Pullen
dropped dead, supposed to be the result of
heart disease. The boys were playing town

W. W. Journal: On Saturday of last
week the body of Robt. Cromwell was
found in the vicinity of the Northern Pacific
railroad track at Ellensburgh. His skull
had been fractured with a coupling-pin, and
the pin coyered with hair and blood, was
found a short distance from the body. It

had shot off a blast in a deep well and went
down in the well soon after. The smoke
and gas was so intense that he was soon
overcome from its effects and was so wealt
that he could not fasten a rope around him
self. In thi3 condition he laid about two
hours and a half. When taken fron the
well he was unconscious and remained so
for some time. He is now improved but
still feels the effects.

off into a ditch, eg.-u'n pronounced . dead.
But one of the trairrluen, in order to make
sure, shot it a couple ot times, llie con
ductor gave his signal, the fiieman rang the
bell and the train moved on. bince then
every freight train that has passed up or

and a few shots have been fared into that
bull, but last night it was still alive and
with strong indications of recovering.

There are very many complaints about

these, in order that it may have a beneficial
effect upon others.

diate employment by going to Waterviile

Baker Reveille: Rumor in political circles
says that there is a probable change to be
made in the office of U. S. district judge
and that Jndge Deady's visit east is very
significant of it. Judge Sawyer is nearly
seventy years old and will scon be retired
from the bench. Judge Deady is looking
to that vacancy and hopes to fill if, in which
event Mr. C. A. Dolph of Portland is to
succeed Judge Deady. This accounts for
the resignation of Mr. Dolph from tbe at
torneyship of the railroad corporations of
the O. R. & N. a few weeks since.
A well authenticated report is in circula
tion in railroad circles that double passen
ger trains will be in operation on the main
line of the O. R. At N. by the first of next
mounth, the large increase of passenger
traffic rendering this step necessary. At
present ten and eleven car trains are often
found necessary to convey the ceaseless
stream ot humanity which flows in both di
rections and unavoidable delays are the re
sult. Two trains, however, wiil easily ac
commodate this travel, and the time sched

Albany Democrat: Ben Clelan, who lost
his right arm Saturday, is doing remark
ably well, displaying a fortitude not oiten

Clelan going to the back seat, he having
been rowing up stream. In pulling bis

W. W. Union: On Sunday, Charles Phil
lips, who lives near the garrison, discovered
a man in the vicinity of his home wander
ing around, as though demented. On ac
quainting the police an oliicer went to the
place and finding the man, took uim in
charge, and as he was manifestly very ill he
was taken to St. Mary's hospital. On be
ing questioned he said his name was Abra-
hainson, that ho was a Swede, and that he
had just come from Spokane Falls. Coun
trymen of his, bearing of the case, employed
Dr. Mauzey to attend on him. The doctor
states that the man is suffering from typhoid
fever, and has been sick 14 or 1G davs. It
is supposed that while delirious he must
have left-bis friends at Spokane Falls and
wandered here. He is in a dangerous con
dition. Tbe power of the local press is unlimited.
It attracts wealth from abroad, ami makes
known the resources and capabilities of tbe
city or town. Every advertisement in a
local paper is an advertisement of the town
it is the voice of the merchant to his custo
mer and to those who dwell at a distance.
It acts in many different ways to benefit the
town and increase its business prosperity.
For these and various other reasons, it is
the part of patriotism and honesty for men
interested in the growth and prosperity of a
town or city to patronize those who patronize
them, and to help sopport and build p
home institutions rather than those abroad.
Iu other words, advertise in your home
paper and show to distant communities that
you can appreciate the efforts made to
develop your town or city.
Salem Statesman: A few days ago on the
nortb-bouud local train, which was loaded
with passengers for the fair at Portland,
some hoodlums on board threw an empty
whiskey bottle from the car into a gang of
Chinamen near Oregon City. The bottle
struck one of the Chinamen on the head and
in breaking cut a frightful gash. The
wounded Mongolian was taken on board the
train and died Irom loss of blood on reaching
Portland. The affair was hushed up as
much as possible, but the young men who
threw the missle have been very uneasy
since the affair. Some young men from
Linn county are said to have been in the
crowd. The above is from the Albany Her
ald but is erroneous. The empty bottle
was thrown by Louis Seigmond of this
county and was not directed at a Chinaman.
The ilask struck the bluff and bounced in
the car where the thrower and the China
man were sitting. It broke a window as it
came in and a piece of glass wounded the
Chinaman. The accident was purely acci
dental aud was witnessed by parties from
Salem, who were in the same car. A Sa
lem Chinaman, a friend cf the one reported
dead, told a Statesman reporter last night
that the wouuded man did not die, but is in
Salem now, working for J. B. Stump.

Salem Journal: A brakeman, whose name
is Harris, met with a bad accident at Tin
ncr this morning in which his left hand was
horribly mashed. He was coupling cars and
in the usual manner his band was caught.
More than likely amputation of the hand
wiil be necessary.
A San Francisco man who bad some
Boston friends visiting him, posted a
placatd in his parlor with the following
on it: "l his is an united states House

' Sweet" for "Suite," "Deppo"' for "Depot,"
"Koot" lor "Uoute," or "ltlier" ana
"Nilher," will be choked into insensibil

The editors of Waitsburg Times offers a
carload of cats for stile, and the Wallula
Herald the same quantity of dogs; the
Walla Walla Statesman rejoins by desir
ing to dispose of the same amount of those
garden ravagers, the city crow, and the
Albany Democrat offers for sale several
box carloads of mongrel tramps. To
raakp our generosity equal to our neigh
bors', we will state that lue Dalles can
beneficially offer "inducements for emi
gration" to about one hundred of the
worst class of hoodlums who ever dis
graced a city.
Poor patronage of the home newspaper
is the cause ol the Urcgonian uiamng the
following just remarks about Corvallis
businessmen: The Coryallis papers are
so poorly patronized by the home mer
chants that one of them has to run a two-
column "ad" of ils own both inside and
outside. These papers are well edited,
and in fact several generations ahead of
the people. Foreign capital will not risk
investment in any town that dosen't sup
port its own local paper, and business
men are killing their own prospects by
starving the home newspaper.
The Ellensburgh Register say s that "Keep
your eye on Pasco is evidently not as easy
matter as the land company's advertise
ments would lead a stranger to suppose. ' A
gentleman who keeps hotel, his name is not
Reily, had a cellar dug last week eight feet
deep and twelve in width. But alas, of all
things terrestial, Pasco real es&te is the
most shifting, for when the h. k. started
out to put the masons to work there was no
cellar, no hole in tbe ground.no anything to
even indicate where the place was. The
wind had raised the $50 per foot lots and
deposited them in the excavation.
Salem Journal: Turner was the scene of a
very exciting runaway yesterday. Mr. Kit
Reed, quite an old gentleman, who resides
about two miles from Turner, was in the
town on business and when passing along
the street his team became frightened at a
fish peddlar's outfit and ran away. Mr.
Reed was thrown from the wagon to the
ground and in falling struck on his bead and
shoulders. He was badly bruised up, and,
being a man of about 70 years, it will make
it much worse on him. He is the father of
Mr. Reed, the Turner merchant. Dr. Smith,
of Turner, called on the wounded man and
dressed bis wounds and he is now resting
quite easy. The wagon was a total wreck
and one of the horses was badly bruised.
The old gentleman escaped luckily with his
Orondo Neirs: The town of Chelan has
been- laid out and platthd as a government
town site on the old mi'itary post grounds
at the foot of Lake Chelan. The side com
prises 100 acres and is located on a beauti
ful plateau about two hundred and fifty
feet above the Columbia river and distant
nearly three miles therfrom. Over twenty
buildings have ba3n erected during the past
two months. A magnificent water power
is at hand. The Chelan river if harnessed
to turbine water wheels, would run all the
machinery in the state of Washington.
The beautiful Lake Chelan with its nn-
fathomed depths of ether blue lies in front,
while the towering hills and mountains
form a background of rugged scenic grand
eur. About seventy foundations and build
ings indicate that so many lots have been
claimed by actual and prospective settlers.

We learn from the Albany Herala that
the plant of Messrs. Orman, Crook & Co.
arrived yesterday from Portland, or rather
the first shipment arrived, consisting cf
seven car loads, and another shipment will
arrive in a few days.
J hese gentlemen will ship their plant to
the front to-day and begin work at once.
They purchased a large amount of supplies
in Albany Monday which goes to the
front with "their plant. They will put
about buu men to work at once ana will
pasb the work of construction vigorously.
There need be no complaint among laborers
about scarcity of work, for they will em
ploy all wbo apply for work bere aud will
nave to get many meu from abroad. They
propose to prosecute the work until late in
the winter, and will finish the road to the
summit with all possible haste, in order to
get an early start next spring ou the work
east of the (Jascaile mountains.
The track is low laid to Breitenbush,
which will obviate much of the expensive
pat-king that bas heretofore been required
of contractors. About six miles ot road
has been finished at the summit, and next
summer will witness its coinpl. tion through
the great wool producing district of Crook
county, which will bring all the trade from
a large scope of country to Albany.

Baker Democrat Oct 17th.
Mr. William Morfit, merchant of Mal
heur city, who arrived in this city yester
day morning relates to the JJemocrat re
porter the particulars of the accidental kill
ing of two miners, a white frnan and a China
man, by the falling of an embankment in
tbe placer claims of Dr. Devore, situated on
Sha3ta gulch, about balf-way between the
old mining camp of El Dorado and Malheur
City, in Malheur county.
The accident occurred between 2 and 3
o'clock on Tuesday evening when a twenty-
foot bank of earth and gravel gave way and
came tumbling down and in a second almost
bad buried beneath it John Brown, an old
pioneer of the camp, and s Chinaman work
in the sluices near him. Others who were
at work in the claim noticed the falling of
the embankment in time to save themselves.
The alarm was instantly given to all hands
and tbe hydraulics were at once turned on
the detached deposits' of earth amounting
in weight to many tons in the hope of ex
tricating the unfortunate men from their
perilous position, but with little hope of tak
ing them out alive. At a late hour on
Tuesday evening the bodies yet remained
This is the first accident of this nature
that has occurred in the camp for many
years, not since the early extensive work
ing of the placers, when the falling of banks
were of frequent occurrence and many a
poor, honest miner went to his claims in the
morning, bonyant with the hope ot striking
it rich, to be brought home in the evening a
A Mysterious Affray,
W. W. Union.
About 9 o'clock Monday evening as Robt.
M. McCailey was seated in his office at
work he was interrupted by the entrance of
a stranger, who inquired for Justice Taylor.
On being told that he bad retired for the
night, the stranger asked Mr McCailey to
write a letter for him, as he had been
wounded in the right hand and could not
write. Of course the request was granted,
and the letter written as dictated. It was
addressed to Mrs. H. Knowlton, Adams,
Oregon, and in substance said that the
lady '8 husband had been wonnded, but not
seriously, and begging her not to worry as
he was being well cared for. That the fight
had been seven men on two, but they stood
them off. The signature given was J. C.
Miller. With pardonable curiosity Mr.
McCailey asked the man where the fights
occurred, wuen and under wnat circum
stances, but the only answer given was that
t happened back in the mountains, but
whether land jumping, horse stealing or
some other thing was the impelling cause,
he would not say. Nor could anything be
learned from him as to who his seven antag
onists were. He did say that Knowlton,'
his partner, was shot in tbe hip, but he did
not think the wound was dangerous.
Mar Itemaiii a Mystery.
It is often said that "murder will out,"
but it does seem that this o'd laying is
sometimes slow in being verified. In Crook
county within tbe past few years a number
of crimes have been committed which are
shrouded in mystery and seem liable so to
in. For instance, not less than half a
dozen fires have occurred in the county dur
ing the past two years which were undoubt
edly incendiary, yet there has not been a
single instance in which the person who
kindled the bre bas been convicted, and in
most cases it has been impossible to even
guess whom the incendiaries were. And again
the disappearance of Ueorge JNutting last
May, which is generally conceded to have
been the work of an assassin, is still a mys
tery, and the parties who are most inter
ested in -discovering his murderer have
abandonded the search entirely. When
such crimes as those mentioned above can
be committed and tbe closest investigation
fails to discover the perpetrators it seems
there is little protection to life or property.
But theie seems to be no remedy, since men
do not call in witnesses when thev commit
crime, and if they have sense enough to
keep their mouths shut after it is done tbey
are usually saf e from detection.
Board nt Trade.
. A meeting of the board of trade was held
last evening at the council chambers, at
which there were present a full quorum.
President Macalhster being absent Vice
President McFarland took tbe chair and
Secretary Huntington kept the minutes of
The minutes of last meeting were read
and approved, although apparently do
record was kept of a committee appointed
to ascertain the availability and feasibility
of opening the Columbia river to tbe navi
gation of the piople by opposition boats be
tween this city and the Cascade Locke.
A communication was read from Donald
Macleay, president of the Portland board
of trade, asking the secretary to give in
formation of farmers who are in need of
seed wheat, and who have net the means to
procure the same. After some discussion,
in which criticism was made of means and
methods now employed and an expression
of confidence that The Dalles was amply
able to supply all needy farmers, a motion
was carried that a committee of three be
appointed to investigate and ascertain the ,
bamce of thoje who were hot able to pro1
sure seed wheat, and report at the next
regular meeting, committee consisting of
Messrs. R. F. G.bous, E. Schanno and Geo,
A letter was read by the secretary re
questing a page advertisement for $30 in
pamphlet to be published by the O. R.
N. Co., descriptive of towns along the route
and to be distributed east. Ibe secretary
was instructed to acknowledge receipt of
letter and decline the offer, and on motion a
committee of three, consisting of L. Butler,
C. L. Phillips and Jos. MacEachern, was
appointed to confer with local printers and
ascertain what could be done in regards to
advertising our resources. Some advocated
patronizing the O. R. & N. Co., and others
the local press in the discussion which fol
Mr. Schanno. in answer to a query stated
that there were about ?'20O due the commit-
tee of tbe board for repairing the road to
and lrom the Deschutes.
On motion a committee of five was ap
pointed to induce the senatorial committee,
who will visit this state iu a few days, to
examine the locks at the Cascades and also
the obstructions between The Dalles and
Celilo, aud impress upon their minds the
neccs38ity of government aid therefor, and
was empowered to make the necessary ar
rangements tor this purpose. Tbe commit
tee consisted of Messrs. E. B. McFarland,
R. Mays. D. M. French. John Michell and
li. a. Huntington.
There being no further business before the
meeting the board adjourned.

Fire at Wallace.
Last Friday afternoon, about 4 o'clock
the barn of Mr. C. R. ITallace was burued
to tbe ground. He lost ten tons of hay be
sides a number of agricultural implements,
hack, harnesses, and a calf. His loss will
approximate about $1500, and he is insured
for about one-half. The following after
noon, Saturday, about 1 o'clock Mr. C. W.
Phelps lost twenty-five tons of bay by fire,
aud his house caught twenty-one times.
Through the atienuous exertions of the rail
road employes the building was saved, but
the bedding and clothing thrown from the
windows were consumed by the flames.
The house is slightly damaged, but not to
any considerable amount. Mr. Phelps esti
mates his full loss at $500, and has no in
surance except on the" house and furniture.
These fires were undoubtedly the work of
an incendiary, and if he is caught he will be
given an oppertnnity of stretching hemp.
The community are terribly excited as this
is the third destructive fire this season, and
threaten vengeance on the culprit when

TO CI.EAB CHOMN'b. NAME.
Chicago, Oct. 24. P. W. Dunne, bo
is indirectly connected with the urosecb
tion in tbe Cranio trial, said to day that
efforts bad been made and were to bo
further pushed to obtain, if possible,
from Parnell or his counsel. Sir Charles
liussell, a categorical statement that
Cronin's name was not one of the four

oi me men who were systematically be
traying to the English government the
secrets of the Irish movement in Amen
ca. Letters to this end have been writ
ten, one at least, by Dunne to the Irish
leader Matt. Harris.
It is now proposed to forward to the
other side, as formidably signed a peti
tion as can oe secured, demanding the
desired information, and taking the
ground that if Cronin's name was not on
the lists of spies no breach of trust will
be made by breaking- the silence and
TRAFFIC IN THBl DEAD.
Helena, Mont, Oct. 24. Speculating
with tbe dead has become a professional
business in Helena, atd public indigna
tion has been aroused. Investigations
show that an abominable traffic in dead
bodies has been going on in Helena lor
some time, and that tbe coroner has given
the bodies under bis charge to under

A DESPERATE ROBBER.
London, Oct. 24. A desperate attempt
at bank robbery was made at Didsbury,
Lancashire, to day. An unknown man
entered the baDK, drew a revolver and
shot Allen, the manager. He then fired
at tbe clerk, seized 80 and bolted across
the country. A crowd pursued him, and
he was soon overtaken. Finding escape
shut off, he shot and killed himself. AU
len's wound is not necessarily fatal.
VILLARD'S AGGRESSIVE POLICY.
n elena, Mont., Oct. 24. It is enven
out from official sources that as Henry
Yillard has once more secured control of
the Northern Pacific he will adopt a
much more aggressive policy toward
competing lines, especially the new Manitoba-Canadian
Pacific combination. It
is tbe intention of tbe Northern Pacific
to watch every move of the Manitoba.
and if it cuts into the Northern Pacific
territory, to at once take retaliatory steps.
It is said this will be done to the extent
of paralleling every mile of road owned
oy tne Juamtona. Arrangements are
already made to build into the Red river
country the moment the Manitoba is
beaded for Northern Pacific territory
west of Helena across the border line.
Tbe company's lines in Manitoba are to

SritECKELS AND THE SUGAR TBU8TS.
Philadelphia, October. 24. Clans
Spreckles intended to begin work at his
big refinery to-day, but, owing to the
Dad weather and other causes, he was
prevented from doing so. Active opera
tions will propably begin next week.
bpreckles is confident that be will win
the fight against tbe sugar trust. "I will
produce 1,000,000 pounds of sugar per
ay at the start," said Mr. eprcckels.
By February 2,000,000 pounds a day
will be turned out. I have decided to
double ray plant, and when the new
buildings are finished, as they will be
before the end of next year I will produce
4,0000,000 ponnds a day. New Orleans
will be the next objective point. A
refinery will be built there with a cap
acity of 1,000,000 Dounds a dav, and
when I have doubled my plant here, I
will produce 6,000,000 pounds of sugar
per day. The trust produces 8,000,000
pounds a day, so when I get fully started
I sball turn out tbree-fourths of the entire
product, and I shall sell it too."
Washington, Oct. 24. Governor
Pennoyer's plan to construct a portage
railroad at The Dalles, instead of a boat
railway or canal and locks, bas been
received, and is being somewhat dis
cussed here. Being asked his opinion on
tbe subject, Senator Dolph said it looked
as if the matter was to be made a politi
cal hobby and ridden to death ; that the
Oregon delegation in congress were
united in their efforts to secure tbe re
moval of obstructions at this pt int by
some speedy and proder method ; that
they had succeeded in getting an appro
priation for tbe examination of tbe tiver
at this point by tbe board of engineers,
that the board consisting ot some of the
most eminent engineers of tbe army
which was appointed a year ago, exam
ined the obstructions, surveyed the river,
aud under directions of tbe secretary ol
war bad since visited Euglaad and France
to examine eimilar works; tbat Col. Men
del was now in San Francisco engaged in
comparing tbe report, which be was as
sured would be ready before the meeting
of congress, and tbat he believed it
would be in favor of the boat railway;
tbat tbe governor had first advocated a
boat railway, but in a recent speech be
fore the waterway convention at Port
land bad advocated the canal and locks,
and was now advocating tbe ordinary
standard gauge, poitage railway, which
would necessitate the bundling of freight
twice, and would be operated when there
were appropriations for tbat purpose, and
stopped when there were none; tbat he
(Senator Dolpb) did not believe there
was anything in the governor's state
ment tbat boats which could navigate

THK KENTUCKY FACTION FEUD.
Louisville, Kj., Oct. 24. A special
thU morning gives a correct statement ot
the killed and wounded in the factional
fight near Harlan court bouse yesterday
Two hours before daylight tbe law and
order party, hitherto styled "The Turner
tacuon or Harlan county," ntty men in
all, armed with Winchester rifles and
revolvers, under tbe leadership of County
Judge Lewis, left tbe court bouse and
made an assault upon tbe Howard forces,
in camp at E. M. Howard's bouse, a mile
from town. The engagement was short,
sharp and ternnc, but not one ol tne at
tacking party was hurt. One ot How
ard's side, Millard Dean, was instantly
killed, and six others were wounded.
Paper Cunrenry m China.
The first attempt at paper currency in
China of which any record remains was
in A. D. 800, says tbe Nor.h China Daily
New, when bills of exchange were called
"flying money." Merchants in the capi
tal could by an ordinance then first made
receive government bills in return for the
merchants' copper money. On arrival at
any provincial capital they could receive
from tbe provincial treasurer tbe amount
stated on tbe bill. There was a return to
this system, which was a sort of banking
facility offered to the merchants by the
erovernment, about the year A. D. 060.
A bureau was instituted in Eai-feng-fu,
theu tbe capital, for the transaction of
this business In 1023 Szechuan was
Buffering from the iron cash coinage
which the government from scarcity of
copper was forcing on tbe people there.
Tbe paper notes men put in circulation
at Cheng to by the government were
meant as a relief. They were to be re-
turned ouco la three years. Tb ideal
sprang up among the rich merchants and
was accepted by tbe government, and tbe
merchants conducted the business. The
limit of capital represented by the n t;s
was 1,355,300 string, a string being 1000
copper cssii. in A. Ii. 1100 tbe Uolden
Tartars had just conquered North China,
and about this time they adopted a cur
rency in paper because they found cop
per scarce. Copper, silver and gold have
always been chiefly found in South China
A JNortb China kingdom nods it conven
lent to use paper so far as possible to pre
vent its being dependent on a southern
neighbor. From this time forward, dur
ing a cpntury of tbe Golden Tartars and
another century of tbe Mongol domina
tion, strenuous efforts were made to main
tain a paper currency. Colonel Yule, Dr,
lsusiicu and others have pnnted fac
similes of the notes of these periods,
They are found, for example, in Yule's
Marco Polo and in the Journal of the
Peking Oriental Society, published this
year. All the efforts of the government
aia not secure tne credit ot tbe notes at
par. On tbe contrary, tbey became de
preciated to an extreme degree. Thir,
however, did not prevent the government
of the Ming dynasty, which acquired the
sovereignty in A. D. 13G8, from continu
ing tor a time paper currency, which wus
finally abandoned, as silver flowed iuto
the country through tbe foreign trade,
wmcn Drought to the southern ports a
portion of the products of Mexican and
Peruvian mines. It was American silver
that gave the death blow to paper cur
rency in China. The arrival of sufficient
silver was the real relief which Chinese
trade required. Notes were finally ubol
ished about A. D. 1C20. Thus the con
quest made by silver of paper occupied
about a century or a little more, from
the commencement of tbe trade of tbe
Spaniards and Portugese with Canton.
