Would it not be advisable for the young

The connty court, after carefully weigh
ing all reasons for and against the reduction
of the levy of tuxes this year, came to the
conclusion that a tnx of 20 mills n-onld be
the proper one, and so decided. The con
trolling reason was that there are very
many end the largest taxpayers who are as
able to pay 20 mills at 10, who have not
suffered from the drouth, aud the reduction
would be favorable fo allalike. The county
court will be careful that no taxes be de

able to pay on account of the loss of crops.

"The Columbia a B iptlst Elvei"
The above is the heading of an article in
the Herald of Trulh, published in San
Francisco, by a correspondent. The follow
ing are excerpts which we publish to show
the gist of the communication:
Did you know that the Columbia river
was owned by a Baptist? Well, it is, that
is, a part of it; the better part ot nve miles
of it at any rate. How does that strike
you? This is one of the biggest things out
of jail. Do you know how big the Colum
bia river is? Well, it is ten miles wide at
the mouth. Baptists don't own any of the
month of it though don't need any; they
have plenty of mouth and tongue, too, with
out it. But the Columbia, at Tho Dalles, is
a Baptist riyer. It is at that point one-half
mile wide, and eighty-six feet on an average
through the center. All that water and all
the hsh that swim in that water for nve
miles above the city, are the property of
Rev. O. D. Taylor.
I must tell you that he owns about 5,000
or 6,000 acres np anil down the stream on
the Washington side. Rev. O. D. Tavlor
takes no man's dust behind his team of fly
ers, ills great uncle was rresident laylor,
hence he is of good stock. He is an able
Baptist preacher, and is worth nearly or
quite $200,000, the most of which he has
made in the last six years, if yon wish
to be treated like a king by one who knows
bow to do the princely thing in a princely
way, just give Rev. O. D. Taylor a call
some tine day. Don't all call ac once, nor
take all vour "sisters, and cousins and
aunts," but call single file, and if yon do
Lot have a good time at 1 he Dallse, I shall
conclude that there is something wrong
with you. I was np to The Dalles for the
fourth time in my life last week, and the
fourth time was the charm.

The particulars of the shooting scrape
at Farmington, in which William Russell
shot David Canty, are as follows :
Russell and a companion, a cripple,
were pessing through Farmington with a
raceho'-se, bound lor Coeur d' Alene.
They stopped at Hint place and entered a
srloon. Russell's f: lend was intoxicated,
and while drinking at the bar, slipped
and fell. At this iu. ident, several young
fellows who weie scr ted at a table, among
whom was Canty, laisetl a loud laugh.
Canty, being the n ore obstreperous, was
approached by Ri ssell, who exclaimed:
"You , y u would laugh at a
cripple, would yt u," at the same time
drawing a pistol and firing at Canty's
bead. The ball entered below the left
temple and pasted out below the right
Russell was immediately arrested and
has been conveyed to Colfax. The shoot
ing occurred riaturday at noon, and on
the Sunday following Canty died from
the effect of his wound.
Ru'jsell narrowly escaped lynching at
Farmington. He claims that the weapon
was aecidently discharged.

"Big Bob" Satta, the Indian murdered
on the Swinomish reservation, near La
Conner, Oct. 7th., by the four Indians,
Charley Williams, Tom Alexis, Charley
Seatit and Big Bill, who are now in the
King county jail awaiting trial, was a
victim to Indian superstition.
It has always been a superstition
among Pacific coast tribes that when a
death occurred some "tenanimous man',
(meaning Indian doctor), was directly re
sponsible, and it followed as an unwritten
law that the member of tribe most open
to suspicion should be put to death. It
was supposed that the enlightening in
fluences of civilization bad dissipated this
dark superstition, but it seems such is not
the case. Big Bob, the victim of this
tragedy, had claimed to be a "tenanimous
man," and bad so worked upon the cred
ulity of his people that when a number
of deaths occurred upon the reservation
the finger of suspicion was at once pointed
at him. The Iudians held a council and
decided tbat their only safety lay in the
death of the medicine maa and four of
their number were appointed to execute
what they called retributive justice in the
most summary manner possible. Indian
Agent Salmon was told that Big Bob bad
been sentenced to death, but koowing the
unreliability of bis informants, laughed at
Early Tuesday morning Big Bob's body
was found doubled np in a small and
hastily dug hole, only "partially covered,
tear the Catholic church on the reserva
tion. His throat had been frightlully
hacked and cut from ear to ear. It was
evident tbat he made a desperate struggle,
and that lie hud only been overpowered
after a determined resistence. Agent
Salmon had no difficulty in locating the
murderers, who made no effort to conceal
their crime. The Swinomish reservation
is now without a "tenanimous man."
The Two Ilakotas.
Sau Francisco Chronicle.
A Democratic contemporary has some
editorial commects upon North and
South Dukota which deserves severe rep
robation. Taking as a text the necessi
ties of the inhabitants of certain portions
of these new states and the actual starv
ing condition ot a large number of peo
ple, this journal says: "If the commit
tee sent Ire in st. raul to investigate re
port the truth the country receives a
sickening impression that a great par
lisun lruud has been perpetrated by the
admission upon a stuffed census and false
statistics of two states to be starving rot -ten
boroughs, useful odIj for the criminal
purpose of politicians. There seem to
lis no iuternal resources at all, and the
recent shouts over a partisan victory are
already declined to a beggar's whine, and
usiead ot two proud, resourceful and in-
deptnd-int states the doots of the Union
seem to have opened to two lazzaroni,
who come in asking alms."
This is probably the first time in the
history of journalism when a newpapur
has been so unspeakably prejudiced as to
denouDCe starvation as a crime because
the victims of short crops and hard times
did not vote the Democratic ticket.
Never before was the hunger ot a people
iranded as a partisan fraud or their ap
peal for the means of subsistence charac
terized as a beggar's whine. It is puerile
to tulk about a stuffed census when the
two states cast 120,000 votes, and to as
sert tbat the DukoUs have no internal re
resources when the contrary is so well
Had these new states gone Democratic
the journal in -question would have been
uiong the first to move in the matter of
extending aid to our starving fellow
countrymen; but, since the people chose
to vote the Republican ticket, tbey are
lazzirnoi and beggars. It is a new code
of ethics, that of the journal referred to,
which would teed hungry Democrats but
let hungry Republicans starve.

San Francisco, Nov. 7. The steamer
City of Sydney, from Japnn to-day, brings
particulars ot the attempted assassination
on October 8 of Count Okuma. minister
of foreign affairs for Japan. The count
was returning from a cabinet meeting and
just entering the gate of his official resi
dence, when a man named Eurushima
Tsuneki, 30 years of age, and who was
politically envious of the count, stepped
in front of the carriage and threw a bomb
at the count. The bomb struck the top
ot tne carriage and exploded al the count's
feet, inflicting deep wounds on his right
leg and slight wounds on his right hand
and face. The would-be assassin then
drew a short sword and killed himself on
the spot by cutting his throat. The
connt's leg was amputated above the
Knee, but the surgeon states that no tear
need be entertained for his life.

SEVERE SNOW 8T0RM,
Denver, Col., Nov. 7. A Republican
special from Clayton, New Mexico, says:
Unless the snow storm, which has been
ragiug for eight days comes to an end
soon, next summer will show a country
covered with the dead bodies of animals
as thickly as was t'-e old Sau a Fe trail
in the sixties. The depth of the snow is
not now less than 2G inches on a level,
and in many places it is drifted seven
feet high. When the storm struck tliis
section, seven large herds of cattle, num
bering from 400 to 2000, were being held
near this 'place awaiting shipment to ihe
eastein market. The rain of -a week ago
Wednesday was followed Thursday morn
ing by a blizzard of snow and sleet which
sent the herds in a southerly direction.
In vain did the half-frozen cowboys try
to check the march of the herds, but on
they went through the increasing storm,
until, finding it utterly iirpossibie to
hold the cattle, the boys rode aside and
let them pass, and nearly dead, rode their
exhausted horses into canyons or partial
ly sheltered places, where "tbey-- passed
many hours of misery without food or
fire. Two cowboys drilteo into a canyon
wi ere they found a cedar tree with a
rxt's nest in it. They managed to l'ght
a lire with this. Daring the second night
one of their horses died from cold, and
having notlnnir to eat the men cut pieces
ot flesh from the dead animal, which tbey
warmed and ate without salt. Alter re
maining there for sixty hours they started
out and after much suffering and hard
ship from their weakene f condition,
managed to reach a ranch thirty miles
away, where tbey were cared for. Five
cowboys are known to have been frozen
to death, Henry Miller, John Martin,
Charles Jolly aud two unknown. Two

frozen to death, one near Train peras and

Probably noone thii fr has caused such a genera!
revival of trade at Snipes & Kinersly's drug store
as their giving away to their customers of so many
free trial bottles of Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption. Their trade is simply enormous in
this very valuable article, from the fact that it al
ways cures and never disappoints. Coughs, colds,
asthma, bronchitis, croup and all throat and lung
diseases quickly cured. Yon cn test it before buy

CLEAR TOUR FACE.
It has been heretofore shown la
these columns that modem medi
cine has demonstrated that a pim
ply skin is not the result of blood
diseases, but Is caused by Impaired
digestion, for which they now giT
vecetablo correctives Instead of pot
ash and mineral blood purifiers. Two short testi
monials are hero given to contrast tho action of
the potash sarsapaxlllas and Joy's Vegetable Sar
saparilla. Mrs. C. D. Stuart of lZH. Mission street, & F.,
writes that she took one of the leading sarsa
parillas for Indigestion and dyspepsia, Its only
effect was to cause pimples to appear on her face.
Upon taking Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla the
first effect was the disappearance of the pim
ples and she was subsequently relieved of her
Indigestion and dyspepsia. Robert Stewart also
writes from rctaluma, CaL, tnat
being troubled with bolls he found
that one of tho leading sarsapa
rillas actually increased the erup
tions, which responded at once to
Joy's Vegetable Sarsaparilla and
disappeared almost immediately.

" The Royal Baking Powder is undoubtedly
the purest and most reliable baking powder

" The Royal Baking Powder is purest in qual
ity and highest in strength of any baking pow
der of which I have knowledge.
" Wm. McMdbtrie, Ph. D."
All Alum baking powders, no matter how
high their strength, are to be avoided as dan
gerous. Phosphate powders liberate their gas
