and better beef could not be desired.
Mr. A. J. - Wall, the owner of the "spot

very alarming telegrams were received here
regarding one of our citizens. But our peo

. Astoria Pioneer: Mrs. Robert Morrison,
one of the oldest pioneer in this state, is
lying at the point of death in Clatsop. Tho
lady "came the plains over" in 1846 and is
now nearly 90 years of age. She is being
kindly cared for by friends and relatives.

keeping an eye on Pasco in the courts.
East Oregonian: A man named Brassfield,
living near Echo, passed through Pendleton
Fliilay cn the east-bound freight train in a

grading on the line of the Astoria and South
coast railroad, southeast from Sackett's
mill. He will have 85 more come down
from Portland to-night and go to work
.Monday. Everything is booming right
along on the line, and the good weather
favors the progress of the work.

Lewiston Teller: P. Gose, of Uniontown,
was in -the city on Tuesday having been
over to Asotin in attendance on court. He
informed us that upwards of 150,000 bushels
of grain would be shipped from Uniontown
this fall, and taking into consideration the
failure of crops in all parts, we consider
this a good amount from that section.
W. W. Statesman: Mr. and Mrs. Royce
have been dismissed. The trial was heard
Thursday evening before Justice Taylor.
D. J. Crowley was the attorney for the O.
& W. T., G. T. Thompson, B. L. and J. L.
Sharpstein for Mr. and Mrs. Royue. The
bond given by the railroad was held by
Justice Taylor not to be of force, hence the
defendants were discharged.
Astorian: While digging a trench by his
. house, which is on the site of the old origi
nal or aboriginal Astor fort, yesterday, Rob
Carrnthera came across the lines of the old
magazine built in eighteen hundred and
ever so few, and nnearthed some ancient
spikes which once held the walls of the
uiagizino together, and which were quickly
seized upon as relics by those present.
While a respected minister was leaving
the honse of one of his parishoners he was
startled by the cry: "Oh, my Jesus has
gone." Turning to ascertain the meaning
of the irreverent expression, he saw a little
boy pass him on a run and grab a pet
kitten in his arms and take it into the
house. He explained the situation by in
forming the gentleman that in opening the
gate be had unconsciously let his pet cat,
which he called Jeans, escape.
Yakima Herala: Kelson Rich has secured
the contract to build a ten mile ditch in
Eastern Yakima, to extend from "the
Horn" to the Columbia. Joseph Baxter,
F. C. Sharkey, Nelson Rich and H. J.
Suively are the projectors of the enterprise.
The line of ditch has been surveyed and
cross-sectioned and active work was com
menced by the contractor Monday on the
Burning and rock cuts. The ditch will
have a width of twelve fee on the bottom
and the estimated cost is $20,000.
Teller: H. Sqnire presented us this week
with a copy of a Golden Age extra, published
in this city on January 1 1, 1SG3, giving a
fall account of the shooting of Henry J.
Talbotte alias "Cherokee Bob" and Wm.
Willoby by J. D. Williams and O. Bobbins,
at Florence, Idaho. The paper has been
well preserved and the printing is yet clear
and distinct. The parties were tried before
Jasper Rand, now of this city, who was at
that time a justice of the peace in that then
flourishing mining camp. The paper can
be seen at this office by those who wish.
Old Wallula is nearly extinct. In former
years, during steamboat days, three old
adobe buildings stood on the b-nka of the
river, and a hotel, and this coi stituted the
'town. The adobes constituted Ft. Walla
Walla, and the Walla Walla cf to-day was
the Wailatpa mission, where Rev. Marcus
W hitman was massacred by Indians. OM
Jaudmaiks are constantly being removed
and beinjr obliterated by time. New Wal
lula is a lively little town of considerable
pretentions to business and railroad impor
tance, with strong expectations for the fu
ture. John C. Fremont,- the first Republican
candidate for president, is now auout 65
years of age. His hair is snow white and
Jje seems to have paid great attention to the
cars of his locks and whiskers. Tne latter
are cut in the French style and bis hair is
parted in the middle. General Fremont's
adventuresome life has left but little im
pression upon him, and by his present ap-
earance no one would oe prompted to pick
out as the fathhnder of the Rock
ntains. His career is marked with
many interesting historic reminiscences, but
bin name is seldom mentioned in public
Uert On Thursday-last the pack train
neon returned from Warrens and
has now laid np for the winter. They
brought down with them two mule loads of
bullion and deposited in the Liwiston JNa
tional bank, to be shipped to the mint
San Francisco. It was taken out by Mr.
Reibold from different ledges in the camp
during the past six months and is estimated
to be of the value of seyeuty-five or eighty
thousand dollars. This is the largest shin
ment ever made from theie at one time and
will compare with any from any camp
Idaho or Washington. Give them an out
let and the opportunities of other places
and you will have the best mining camp of
any in the northwest and will produce more
Port Townsend Argus: Saturday evening
Jast Joseph Lovely a little son of Henry
Lovely fell oyei board from Bartlett's wharf
and was drowned. Ho had been playing
around the wharf most of the afternoon
waiting for his father to return from Whid
by Island, and it is supposed that in the
darkness he missed his footing and went
into the water. When the little fellow did
not come home to his supper his father
went at once to the wharf to look for him
knowing that he usually waited for him
there to meet bim on his return from the
island. A search was at once institute!

A copy of the Idaho Tri-Weekly States
man, of August 2, 1804, more than twenty-
live years ago, tells us that beef was retail
ing at that time at 1G and 25 cents per
pouu.i; mutton, 20 and 25: chickens, $2
ami 2 50 each; batter, SI per pound; eggs,
$1.50 per dozen; potatoes, nev, 15 cents
per pound; oats, 12; Lay, S'io and $40 per
ton; onions, zo and 30 cents per pound;
cabbage, 15, and so on. The following
winter, however, the foregoing articles com
manded double the price, and many of them
could not be had at that, and green cotton
wood was scarce at $20 per cord. Iu the
same number of the Slutcsman the editor,
Jas. S. Reynolds, acknowledges from John
McClellan the receipt of specimens of yellow
flint corn, followed by a column setting
forth the productiveness of Hoise valley
soil. The law cards of Judge M. Kelley
and Eugene Semple, ex-governor of W ash-
mgton territory, also appear among the ad
vertisements. Semple had tnen just got in
from the plains, a sprig of a lawyer, full of
alkali, cussedness, devilment and Democ
racy; and after taking an active part in the
political campaign of that fall, came to Oi-
egon, where ho became one ot the leaders
of the party.

loudly, aud there was hurrying to and fro.
After running two or three blocks it was
ascertained that some one came running
down street screaming "fire! fire" aud then
the bell tapped and the engine aud hose
cart were brought out. We learned that
the alarm was caused by Mr. J. B. Condon's
chimney burning. If The Dalles was not
so young we should advocate the feasibility
of an electric fire alarm ; but infants must
creep before they can walk.
Salem Journal: There was quite a
bloody fighting affair near Woodburn yes
terday. It seems that in coming up from
Ray's Landing yesterday morning a
coup'e of men engaged in a quarrel and
one struck the other on Ike side of the
head inflicting a deep and dangerous
wound. The affair grew out of an old
difficulty and may result in the death of
the assaulted victim. The affair took
place in a baggage or express car on the
train and no little excitement prevailed
for a short time. The party who did the
terrible deed has not been arrested as yet
Cfiieftain: In answer to a communication
addressed to him from the railroad com
mittee at Union G. W. Hunt states that he
will be over soon to make final arrangements
for the extension ot his road to Grande
Ronde. He will be at Uuion Thursday,
Oct. 31st; Summerville, Friday, Nov. 1st
and Elgin, Saturday, November 2 1, to meet
the people in mass convention. Mr. Hunt
expects to build his road to Grande Rour'e
via Elgin, provided the subsidy subscribers
will extend the line named in the contract
to December, 1891. It is thought there will
be no trouble in arranging the matter satis
factorily to all parties concerned.

To the Honorable, the Mayor, akd
City Council of Dalles City, Oregon.
Gentlemen: We the undersigned ancient
citizens of Dalles City, Wasco county,
Oregon, and vicinity, viewing with deep
regret the hardships imposed by a late
city ordinance, which we learn seriously
nects the long established practice ot
JNaggs being bitched at convenient places
of business or public resort, and demands
nat alter dark said JNaggs be hitched out
side of the city.
Now therefor we the undersigned very
esrectfully pray that said ordinance be
so qualified as to allow said Naggs during
his natural life to visit and hitch at all
his ancient hitching posts, whether of
amp. telegraph, street or corner posts, at
any and all times of day and night, and
we as in duty bound wib always pray.

Sheriff D. C. Lounsbury arrived in the city
early this morning, and from him we learned
the description. It is believed they came
to Eastern Oregon, and the deputy thinks
he is on the track of them. Last night our
police authorities arrested a man whom
they believe to be Gay, and he is now in
jail aud will be taken to Portland. We
shall mar more from these fellows in a few

Last Tuesday morning the town was con
siderably worked np by a cutting affray, in
which a man named Samuel B. Wright was
stabbed by one Thos. Sullivan. There was
none of the usual noisy demonstrations pre
facing the assault, and few people on the
street was attracted to the spot until after
the cu tting. From what can be learned of
the case the two men had had some words
prior to the murderous assault. They were
standing on the sidewalk on Harker street
in front of Judge Small's office, when the
quarrel was renewed am) Sullivan- made a
lunge at V right witn a pocket unite, xne
blade entered tbe abdoman. As soon as be
was cnt Wright kicked his assailant, who
started south on Hal ker street. He ran in
to the brush on the creek, when a few min
utes afterwards be was arrested by Officer
Boyes. The wounded man was examined
by Drs. Whitney and Avers, ami after the
cut was dressed he was temoyed to the Oc
cidental hotel. This moruii g the wounded
man shows no signs of improvement and tne
physicians fear peritonitis may result. It
is yet difficult to determine what may be
the termination of the wound. Both men
have been employed on the railroad.
Wright has been cooking for tbe railroad
graders here. Sullivan waived an examina
tion before Judge Robinson Tuesday, who
bound him over in the sum of' $2500. Not
being able to procure the necessary bad
Sullivan was taken to Spragae Wednesday.

SECRETARY BLATNE's HEALTH.
Washington, Oct. 29. 'Walker Blaine
says: "We have for some time been so
tired of denying such tales that we Lave
concluded not to dignify this last one of
why my fathet wrote the Florence letter
with any notice whatever. Fatner, im
mediately after his return from Europe,
went into the campaign and delivered no
less than seventy-five speeches. To day
he is in as good health as be ever enjoyed,
though constantly at work at the state
department or at his home. You can
draw your own inferences, therefore, as
to tbe truth or falsity of tbe tale."
Joseph Man ley, postmaster ot Agustua,

any man living. He says: ''I have not
much to say, for I consider tbe story
about Blane's Florence letter too ridicu

Olyitpia, Oct. 29. A great deal of
anxiety is felt regarding tbe reported
drowning of some persons near bteila-
coom on Saturday night, but up to this
time nothing has beeu discovered that
would throw any light on the subject. It
seems to be tbe general impression that
several persons were in tbe boat that was

passengers on the steamer says he thinks
there was a.woman child in the boat. As

A Merchant's Wife the) Bone of Contention.
a ii known merchant who has been greatly
Benefitted by Joy's Vegetable Samaparilla, desired
to give it to his wile, who was very delicate, but
rot of caatiou first consulted his physician. Dr.
W. H. Grlawold of 850 Market street The doctor,
who la one of our leading practitioners objected,
my ing he had never seen a sarsaparilla that did
not contain potash, which thinned tho blood;
that hia natient did not have any vitality to lose,
and that what delicate people need is not de
creased vitality, but more blood. He consented
when assured that Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla
was directly opposed to the old mistaken blood
thinning idea of other sarsapariUaK, and that on
the contrary by specific vegetable alteratives it
stimulated the excretory organs, promoted diges
tion, and repaired nutrition, hence created new
blood and was the very thing for feeble people.
The above explains the hundreds ot cases In
which aged, enfeebled, delicate and run down
people, have been built op by Joy's Vegetable
Barsaparilla after the potash sanaparuias lauea.
Its effects are creating sensation. & f. E
This remedy is becuiiiinir so well known ami m
popular as to need no spteial mention. All wn
hare used Electric Bitters sing the same song of
praise. A purer medicine does rot exist and it is
guaranteed to do all that is claimed. F-leetrle Bitters

Tate Springs, Ten., July 4, i8S3.
The Swift Specific Co., Atlanta, Ga.:
During the spring of 1871, while working
In the field at my home in Morgan county,
Ga I pulled off my shoes to give my feet a
rest. Unfortunately, I walked into a clump
of poison oak, and in few days my feet
were in a teriible condition, and I could not
put on a shoe because of the soreness and
swelling-. I was treated as poison oak cases
usually are, and everything- was healed up.
About the same time- the following spring-,
1872, my feet became sore again, as at first,
and every succeeding- spring for five years
brought back the same condition of the dis
ease, only each time it became more dis
tressing, because I began to think it was a
lifetime trouble. Finally, I was induced to
try Swift's Specific. I took six bottles, and
to-day am entirely well. My improvement
was gradual from the first, and no evidence
of tbe disease remains. I shall take picas
ore in testifying as to its curative proper,
ties. It is the greatest blood purifier in CA
istence. Yours truly, J. L. Morgan.
