San Francisco, Nov. 1. Thus. 3rc
Knight, who until to-day had been the
regular freight agent here of the North
ern Pacific railroad, committed suicide
this afternoon at the Casino, in the Gol
den Gate nark, bv thooting himself id
the left breast. lie was found soon after
and removed to the receiving hospital,
where the bullet was exiructtd. Mc-
Kuight suffered terribly, but did Dot re
cover consciousness so as to speaK con
nectedly, and aied after lingeiing a few
Several mcnths since his wife died and
siuce then he seemed to have grown daily
more discouraged. This at last led to
difficulties with his employers, and this
mnruirg he was relieved from his duties
and another man nut iu his place. It
was manifestly this that led to his deter
mination to commit suicide. McKnight
was widply known over the coast and had
many friends.
Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 1. A Times
Axtell, Kas., special says: The reports
concerning t' e alleged riot between the
Methodist and Catholics at this place
were entirely faUe. The lacts are that a
Presbyterian minister here delivered a
lecture Wednesday evening on "Priest
craft Exposed." A number of Catholics
who were present became indignant at
the charges made in the discourse, and
there ws a short but exciting conflict of
words between the minister and tbe
Catholics. The mayor, however, received
exaggerated reports of the lecture and
was informed that the Catholics bad
made violent threats, and he requested
the governor to send troops to prevent
possible riot.
Helena, Nov. I. The judgement of
the court as announced in Judge De-
Wolfe's decision to-day on the manda
mus ease, held tbat the causes shown in
the answer are not sufficient to justify
the refusal of the board of canvassers to
obey the alternative writ heretofore is
sued. It is therefore ordered that the
peremptory writ of mandamus be issued
to the canvassing board, commanding it
to make the abstract of the votes cast.
Campbell, counsel for the canvassing
board, filed notice of appeal. The per
emptory writ of maudamus was then
issued. A recess was then taken until 1
o'clock, when JIcHatton's lawyeis began
opposing the right of Mr. Hail as an in
dividual member to appeal from the
court's decision in tbe name of the board.
The judge took the matter under advise
ment, and adjourned court until 10
o'clock to-morrow.
San Francisco, Nov. 1. The whaling
schooner Alton arrived here to-day,
twenty three days from Fox island. The
vessel brought the news of the loss of the
steam whaler Lucrelia on a shoal off
Herald island Behring sea, September 5.
The vessel is a total loss, but the crew
were all saved. The Lucrelia was the
nropertv of William Lewis & Co., of this
and was valued at about $SO,C0O.
llton also brought the report of the '
whaling catch up to September 25, which
was thirty-two whales for thirty-six
Glasgow, Nov. 1 During a high wihd
which prevailed here to day the gable of
a building in tbe course of erection on
the site adjoining the Templeton carpet
factory, on Williams street, was blown
down. The falling debris crashed through
the roof ol the weaving department of
the carpet factory, where fifty women and
girls were employed, and all were buried
beneath tbe timbers. It is probable that
forty inmates of tbe weaving room were
killed. "
Denter, Colo, Nov. 1 Word react ed
here this evening tbat tbe southbound
passenger train on the Fort Worth road,
while snowbound near Eaton, sixty-five
miles south of here, was run into by a
freight at 2 o'clock this afternoon, and
that Fireman Flanigan, Engineer Ilickey
and a passenger from Illinois were killed.
No further particulars.
London, Nov. 1 Sir
Henry James
continued to speak for the 7Ym to day.
He endeavored to show that Davitt asso
ciated in America, and elsewhere, with
persons engaged in treasonable acts, and
in seeking to separate Ireland from Great
Britain. He charged the leaders of the
nationalists with trying to keep affairs in
Ireland in an unsettled condition.
Omaha, Nov. 1 Heavy snow has been
falling here since early morning. The
storm has played havoc with the railway
and telegraph wires and overland trains
generally. A fall of about six inches of
snow was reported at tbe Union Pacific
headquarters from several towns in West
ern Nebraska, while in Wyoming a bliz
zard is prevailing, and it is feared tbat
the trains will be blockaded. The tele
graph wires on tbe Burlington are broken
at several points cast ot Omaha. The
trains ou the Elkhorn were delayed more
or less, owirg to the heavy fall ot snow in
the territory. It is reported that at Val
entine the thermometer is rapidly falling
and that a cold wave is prevailing.
judge coolhy's opinion.
Chicago, Nov. 1. Chairman Cooley of
tbe interstate commerce commissiou has
written a letter to Chairman Abbott of
the Western States Passenger Association,
sajingthat tbe extent to which free
transporting is issued, gives abundant
reason to believe tbat regular rates arc
fixed at too high a price. Tbe abuse of tbe
privilege to give excursion rates he
characterizes as a great wroDg. Judge
Cooley adds: '"When railioad companies
thus so distinctly give the public to
understand their regular rates are more
than a fair remuneration for the service
performed for chose who pay them, why
should not the fact be stated with equal
distinctness by the commission in its
official communication.
Denver, Not. 1. The snowstorm
which has been raging forty-eight hours,
abated to day. Tne storm was tbe worst
that has been experienced for several
years. All trains delayed, and telegraph
ic communication with all eastern points
destroyed. Three hundred miles east of
btrc over fifteen miles of telegraph line
has bem completely wrecked, while in
Colorado the dumxge to lruit and shade
trees is considerable.
Reports from the south say the storm
has driven thousands ot cattle add horses
off their range into the sou' beast, and
tbat hundreds of tbe weak animals have
perished iu the blizzards.

McKeesport, Pa., Nov. 3 Late last
night a riot occurred among a number of
Hungarian laborers, and Chief of Police
Robinson and Officer M?Quade were
probably fatally injured. Robinson was
stabbed in the head and about the arms
and hands, while received three
uglv wounds in the buck and neck.
When the officers appeared the Hun
garians ciiarged upon them, and but for
the timely arrival of the officers they
would have been murdered. Four of the
rioters were arrested, and after a desper
ate fight they were placed in the lockup.
The HuDgarians were celebratmg a wed

San Francisco, Nov. 3. Captain Gif-
ford of the bark Ohio, which was lost in
the spring, was a passenger on the whaler
Howland trom Alaska to day, and He
lurnished the paiticulajs of the loss ov
bis vessel. May 20th he was caught la
the ice and the Ohio stove in. Captain
Gilford and his crew remained with the
vessel while tliers was any hope, but ou
the morning of Nay 23 she went ashore
at Nnuivak island. Her fateVwas then
settled. On one side of her wisBiound
ice and on tbe other side floe ice and no
tin e was lost in getting away from her.
As soon as she was struck, four boats
were manned, which were scantily pro
visioned. Tbe men saved nothing but
the clothing which they wore, They had
to work their way through tour milej of
ice to the open sea, where they found the
bark Ocean. Cupt. Marvin took tbe men
in, and they were afterwards distributed
throughout tbe fleet, Giffoid remaining
on the Ocean.
When the Ocean arrived off Point Bar
row in the latter part of July, there was
considerable ice in sight, but it all drift
ed towaid the north and it is presumed
tbat the whales went with it for they
were afterward very scarce.

Helena, Mont., Nov. 4 The state
canvassing board, consisting of Governor
White, Chief Justice Blake and Secretary
Walker, resumed the official canvass of
the total yote. All the returns having
been examined previously, the board had
nothing to do but foot up the total, and
sign their report. This was done in
about five minutes. Chief Justice Blake
then moved to adjourn sine d.e. The
motion was seconded by Secretary Walker,
put by the governor and carried unani
mously. The abstract of the votes and
the report were then placed on the secre
tary's table. Silver Bow county was can
vassed as returned by tbe county canvas

Denver, Col., Nov. 4 One of the re
sults of the terrible blizzards wbich
swept over Eastern Colorado and North
ern New Mexico Thursday and Friday of
last wetk leached here to-day from Fol
som, New Mexico. Thursday night
Henry Miller, the range foreman for Col
R G. Head, with several cowboys, camped
near Sierra Grande witb 1800 beef cattle,
which they were holding for the purpose
ot loading cars at Folsom the next day
for the eastern maikets. At 4 o'clock
that niorting a blizzard from the north
west struck the held, driving the cattle
towards the Texas Panhandle, tbe cow
boys being unable to hold them. Tbe
snow was so blinding that it was Impos
sible to see fifty feet ahead. Miller
called his mtn together, and they started
to follow the herd and attempt to keep
them bunched, so far as possible. It is
not known how long the men succeeded
in keeping with the maddened herd, but
I hey finally lost it, and the men became
separated. Friday night oue of them
wandered into Head's home ranch half
dead from cold and hunger. He told his
story, aud a rescuing -party was immedi
ately scDt out, and Saturday afternoon
the frozen bodies of Henry Miller, Joe
Martin and Chatlie Jolly were found ly
ing on the open plains not far from Ft I
soui. Tbe other meu succeeded in find
ing their way into the camp before they
nere overcome with the cold. Miller has
been foreman for Colonel Head tor twelve
years, aud came here from Louisiana. It

Olympia, Not. 4. President Harrison
clamed the attention of Gov. Moore, Governor-elect
Ferry, supreme judges and
tbe members of the legislature assembled
here to-day. The people are extremely
anxious to don the habilaments of state
hood, and last night the governor and
governor-elect sent the following tele
gram to the president:

tion requires the legislature to convene

NOVEMBER 9, 1889.
(Signed) Benjamin Harrison.
Chief Justice Hanford, who was one of
the canvassing board, overlooked the
document before Messenger Robinson
started with it for the capital, but did
not think that the governor s name was
necessary. President Harrison is techni
cally right, and Governor-elect Ferry and
the legislators do not complain. They
regret exceedingly that the admission of
tne state should be delayed. Especially
when it is considered Governor Moore
wrote a letter to the president stating he
had sent ten copies ot the constitution
and certified to the election returns.
.iraers were given lor its preparation
and it was sent this afternoon. Mean
while something had to be done to avoid
delay in the admission of the state and,
with this in view, the following teiegram
was sent:
''Olympia, Nov. 4th.

CnicAGO, Nov. 4. A concise statement
of what has been done in tbe Cronin case
to date is about as follows: Tbe hearing
of testimony in the case has consumed
ten days. In that time the stale has ex
amined about scveDty witnesses. The
case has been developed far enough to
give some idea of how far the state will
be able to go in proving matters whicb
the jury were protris?d should be proved
in State's Attorney Longenerker's opening
address. Before the trial began there was
in tbe public mmd Ihe geneial idea that
the murder was the result of a conspi-
Lray, more or less extended. Just how
far the state proposed to prove that the
conspiracy w$s extended, was not kuown
untiKthe case wss opened by the state.
It was then seen that it proposedUo prove
it to the widest extentv Altbough great
deal of testimony " has been introduce;'
nothing, or next to nothing, has yet Men
given showing,the conspiracy"3 Lave
been more extended than to include the
prisoners on wiapend those indicted with
What has been proven so far, is that
on the night of May 4, Dr. Cronin was
called from his office ou North Clark
street to attend a man, said to have been
injured by one of P. O'SulIivan's ice
wagons; that he responded to the cad, be
cause he was led to believe it was in pur
suance ot tbe contract he had made some
time before with P. O'Sullivan; that be
left his office in company witb a man, an
accurate description of whom has been
given by a large number of witnesses,
but whose identity has not yet been
made known; tbat the two, the doctor
and the stranger, drove north with horse
and buggy which Dan Coughlin hired of
rJman, the liveryman; tbat Dr. Cromn's
body was found eighteen days later in a
catchbasiu in Lakeview, and that deatn
resulted from blows be bad received
about the head.
The Dalles, Nov. 4, 1SS9.
Editor Tijiks-Mocxtaiseer.-
There is no question in my mind bat thit
there will be considerable Buffering during
the coming winter over the district in this
county that has Euffored from the failure of
crops. Bat tbe suffering will be, in the
majority of cases, endured quietly. The
most deserving and those most in need of
assistance will be those who will never let
their needbe known till they are compelled
to, or till some one well acquainted with
them makes the discovery. Moreover, it is
not donations such people want. They are
willing te pay tor everything tney neea,
and only lack the ability. The merchants
are treating the vast majority very gener
ously by carrying over all they are able.
Ex-Govprnor Alootiy has done vastly more
than bis share in furnishing seed wheat to
hucdreds. But there are still of
farmers who never bad much credit at the
best, who are unsnpplied with teed and
bread and tbe clothing necessary to defend
them from the rigors of the coming finter.
Some of these have no credit bnt they have
their needs all tbe same, and no one can ex
pect the merchants to open new accounts
for such, or turn their firms into eleemosy
nary institutions. The merchants will
have done well when they carry their old
customers and meet their own obligations.
Tbe "bare possibility of such a Btate of affairs
should cause something to be done. It is
easy enough to appoint a committee, but if
such a committee waits till the worst cases
of need come before it, it may wait a long
time. I suggest that measures be adopted
to make a thorough investigation, and as a
means to this end communication should be
opened with every Grange Lodge in the
barnt district, and each lodge be constituted
a committee of investigation to report to a
secretary appointet or to be appointed here.
merely piesent the cruoe suggestion.
without any attempt at dictating measures,
my main object being to start an investiga
tion, tbat ean do no injury even if it is dis
covered tbat no one is in need.

having another lynching boe yesterday, but
the compliance of tbe candidate for necktie,

that he leave town in ten minutes, prevent
ed the addition of another chapter to her
already unenviable history. A Polish
miner was the individual who came so near
taking a farewell of a troblesome world at
the end of a hempen string, and the canse
of it was that he had been somewhat too
previous in his attentions to a four-year-old
girl. The licentious Polander' is now in

Tbe little town of Giant was thrown into
a terrible state of excitement yesterday
over the loss o!a boy, M ho had been missed
since the preceding afternoon. John Henry
O'Ncil, aged about 12 years, a resident of
Umatilla, and son to Mr. Barney O'Neil,
had been visiting at Grant for some days
past. Last Sunday afternoon he loft in
company ,with some other boys, and on the
arrival of the west-bonnd passenger train,,
which was three hours late, a message came
to Mr. Neil McLeod to send the boy home
on the first train. Mr. McLeod began to
search for tbe boy, and continued it until
3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, when he wsa
found dead under a bluff about two hundred
feet high in a nude condition. One arm
and leg was broken and there were bruises
about the head. Ilia clothes were found
near a lake, above the bluff, and it is sup
posed he whs bathing and in playing around
fell oyer the declivity. His parents came
from Umatilla on the afternoon train yes
terday, and tbe first view they had of their
darling boy was when his mangled remains
were brought to the depot.
. There is considerable mystery hanging
around the death of this boy which perha pi
will never be explained. It is very Strang
that on such a cool day as Sunday he should
have bathed in the cold water, and that in
his nude condition he should have wandered
to the edge of the precipice. If it bad been
light be could have seen and avoided the
danger, and it is inexplicable that be did
not clothe himself after nightfall. Johnnie
was a good boy, and had the reputation of
being very obodient to his parents. What
induced him to bathe at that particular
time, and apparently alone, cannot be ex
plained. Tbe little town was perfectly
horror-stricken when ha was found, and it
is tbe most tragical event that has ever
happened in tbe history of Grant.
Mr. AlcLieod came to the city on a freight
yesterday evening and procured a oasktt
and the remains will be taken to East Port
land for interment. The entire community
sympathize with the grief-stricken parents
in their sad affliction.

On arriving home I learned thatCapt,
Biles, agent of tbe O. R. 4 N. Co. land de
partment, had in concurrence with govern
ment specials, surveyed an aor of land for
cemetery, and by mutual consent to-day
commenced removing the corpses trom the
old Chitman pioneer burying ground. Ten
were removed to-day, and a number of tho
relatives of the deceased were iu attendance.
Next Wednesday is set .part to remove
the remains of the Hon. Richard McCary,
one of tbe first members of the Washington
Territory legislature, and Henry Hum-
Iihreys, brother of Capt. Humphreys of Al
lany. He was a veteran of the Mexican
war as well as the early Indian wars in this
region. It is economy to take tbe nearest
and most accessable sand hill they can to
the cemetery. It is a graveyard, that is all, .
and the tramway leading from the canal tf
the sand hill passes under the O. R. t N.
Co. bridge on Dry creek or Chippy hollow.
The cars aro hauled op witb a mule and
loaded with sand. They run down the in
cline of their own roliton.
There has been a great hustle to got aa
much wall laid aa possible before the water
causes the bank where the canal is exca
vated to cave. This is a great credit to tbe
men and officers in charge. Everything is
arranged so complete 'and handy that they
could work enough men, if they had the
means and money, to complete the locks in
eighteen mouths or two years at the farth
est. Mr. Robinson, who laid some of the foun
dation walls, informed me a short time be
fore his death, that two years would be the
longest period of time to complete the locks,
provided the appropriations were such that
tbey could go right ahead. J. D. W.

The prolonged silence of yonr Eight Mile
correspondent should not be taken as an in.
dication of a lack of interest. For the re
cod produced by the utter failure of the
land to respond as usual to our bonest and"
earnest efforts, caused one and all to turn
tbeir attention to more sober channels of
thought, viz: devising ways and means by
which they might best overcome the effects
so vividly realizod. Bat now that everyone -has
about completed satisfactory arrange
ments, and neigh bar greets neighbor with
the usual friendly "Good Morning" and
common place chat, and each one seems to
have resumed the "even tenor of his way,"
