TUB GOLD BRICK GAME.
Port Townsend, Nov. 15. Tbe gold
brick coundeuce game was nearly worked
on Willian Bishop, the hop kiner, of Jef
ferson couDtj, to-dar, by a brace of
operators. One of tbe sacs, Thomas
Kearns, was disguised as an Indian, and
purported to know a secret mine in Colo
rado, where gold was as plentiful as dew
drops. Henry Gordon, an accomplice,
assisted the supposed Indian, who exbibi
U'd a crnld brick which stood the test, and
wns a'lt-getl to be worth $1000. Bishop
hclu secret cnosul'arions and bad ar
raDged to pay $500 for tbe brick to-day.
I tie conference between the trio near town
attracted the suspicion of the police.
Kearns and Gordon were arrested for
vagrants, and when searched were sup
plied with numerous male, female and
Indian disguises. They inadvertently
confessed the cold brick scheme, which
led to an investigation with the foregoing
results. Bishop has lived amoDg the In
dians tmrty years.

REAL ESTATE AGENT MISSING.
Tacoma, Nov. 15. F. W. Popecox, a
well known and wealthy estate agent of
this city, bas been mysterously missing
for tbe past sis weeks. At first bis well
known eccentricities prevented any alarm
on tne part of his mends, but as tbe
weeks lengthened into mouths they final

A BOBBER ON THE WATERS.
Victoria, B. C. Nov. 15. Tbe steam
ship Umatilla was a scene ot a robbery
between Townsend and Victoria Thurs
day night, bills only being taken. A
steerage passenger was suspected and
while tbe steamer was here justified sus
picion right and left. He wag induced
again to goon board and will be arrested

A PREMIUM UPON MURDER.
Chicago, Nv. 15. Maggie 8chriemer
who pouied kerosene oil upon her hus
band June 25, and ther. set fire to him, J
burning him fatally, is suing tbe Catho
lic order of Forresters, through her attor
ney fur $3000, interest and principal, on
the death bench t. which she claims as
beneficiary of the dead man's estate.
The society's lawyer claims that as tbe
woman murdered ber bnsband and is now
serving a term of ten years in tbe peniten
tiary, the death benefit cannot be claimed
MURDER IN THE SECOND DEGREE.
Walla Walla, Nov. 15. So Ho Me,
the Chinese murderer wbo bas been on
trial for tbe past tbree days was found
guiity of murder in tbe second degree, the
jury deliberating only tbree hours, the
general expression of sentiment is that
the crime committed was cold blooded
murder, and but for the lapse of time be
tween the wounding and death of the
roan murdered, the murderer would have
been hanged. Tbe assault was made on
the murdered man June l.but be did not
die until the middle of September. His
liviLg so long was regarded by local doc
tors as almost miraculous, as be bad tbree
mortal pistol shot wounds beside twelve
knife wounds. An examination after
death showed that tbe intestines were
severed in a number of places. So Ho
Me will probably be sentenced to-morrow.
New York, Nov. 17. Word comes
from an interior town of New Jersey that
a negro boy employed on John Johnson's
farm near hero waa extraordinarily fond
of milk fresh from tbe cows' udder, and
contracted a babit of sucking like a calf
the udders of cows on the farm. To
break bim of this habit Farmer Johnson
recently bad a wire muzz'e made and
locked on his bead, iue little fellow
slipped away to tbe pasture, and while
tugging away at the udder ot a cow she
became vicious, kicked bim over and trod
on bis face. One of tbe steel rods of the
muzzle was broken and driven through
the lal's eye into his brain. He lay un
conscious for several hours before found
and died soon after being carried into the
HORRORS OF SIBERIA.

The irallowa Siinal savs: "Judge Fee is
our ideal of a judicial officer. Upon the
bench he knows neither friend nor foe; but
meets every question from the legal and
judicial standpoint, and disposes ot it with
out making a political speech to the 'peo
ple' or the 'taxpayer.' The only speech we
ever heard him make was when the grand
jury returned no indictment against Suther
land for having compelled his child to
swear to a lie. He said: 'The court finds a
atrange state of afiaira in Wallowa county,
HTien a man is indicted and remains in the
county, the indictments are stolen. If be
leaves the undertakings are stolen. A
party will go before the grand jury and
swear to a statement, then come into court
and testify that the statement to tbe grand
jury was false, compelled by another through
threats and duress. And now the grand
?ury returns 'not a true bill' against tbe
man wbo used the threats and compelled
the false swearing. The court is not re
sponsible for this state of affairs, but if the
people can stand it the court can.' We re
gard this aa a blow at tbe grand jury sys
tem, which is rapidly becoming a farce, and
at the still stranger fact that country vaults
and safes will not bold the county records."
The case of the State va. Williams and
others, which haa been on trial in tbe cir
cuit court for the last two or three days,
went to the jury last evening at about 5
o'clock, and a verdict was returned for the
State, in about as short a time as it took
tbe jury to write their verdict. This case
is one that requires more than a passing
notice. It is one of far-reaching import
ance, one that involvea the question of
bread and butter to hundreds. It involves
the right of the people to catch salmon, or
other fish, in tbe waters of the Columbia
river, at places id the river opposite land
owned by private parties. The court in
structed the jury that the Columbia river
waa a navigable stream, and aa such be
longed to the people of tbe state, that
the title to lauds lyiug alohg the bank of a
navigable stream extends only to ordinary
high water mark and no farther. All with
in ordinary high water mark is the prop
erty of the people and cannot be owned by
private parties, it follows, inereiore, mat
the public have an inalienable right to fish
anywhere, in the Columbia river, whether
opposite lands owned by private parties or
otherwise, and the right to anchor their
nets and land their boats anywhere on tne
shore below ordinary high water mark.

In the Times-Mountaineer of the 9th,
I find a communication from Mr, Gourlay
with reference to the sufferers in the dry
belt. His views are certainly correct, m
acknowledgment of which I doff my bat,
make my best bow and say, thank you, Mr.
Gourlay; thank you, sir. It is a step in tbe
right direction. Those suffering most are
those having moved upon new farms and
spent all their earnings in improvements; a
few going some in debt, in the bope that
their crop would enable them to pay np.
Having lost their crop, and not having per
fected a title to their land, having no credit
and unable to give the requisite security
such must suffer unless they are helped.
Your humble servant is one of the number.
But, Mr. Editor, I do not think there ia a
man in Wasco or Sherman counties who
considers" himself an object of charity. I
feel certain that in expressing my own sen
timents I express tbe sentiment of every
man in this community. Send ns a helping
hand, and we will py the money back with
interest. Some bave obtained aeed with
their work, and were compelled to sell it to

After tbe protracted period of drought
that held sway over this tect'on of country
for so long, it is pleasant to be able to re
cord a more prosperous state of i flairs.
Tbe hill that a ahort time ago were all
seared and burnt, are now clothed with a
yerdant mantle. The weather is bright and
sunny, a reflection of which can be sees in
the faces of the now hopeful settler.
There ia quite a boom in this quiet little
city of the delL A new brick stable and a
saloon have just been erected, and the merry
ring of the carpenter's hammer is becoming
quite a familiar sound.
The question of early railway communi

cussed, and it behooves the citizens of The
Dalles to bestir themselves, or tbey will
soon lose forever this the fairest portion of
that vast domain that bas hitherto poured
it bountiful product into The Dalle.
I am sorry that I cannot (end you any
item of local gossip, as my place of resi
dence is too far removed from the township
to be able to collect news, and I am only
induced to write tbese few notes by the
fact that news items appear in your column
from almost every part of the country, and
that this, the most important section, i en

An old settler named Louis Mar, who has
lived alone for many year on his claim
about four mile below the Lower Cascades,
on the Washington side, was found dead in
a field back of bis bouse several daya since.
He had been shot, and waa found with his
gun lying across hi breast. One barrel of
tbe gun, which was an old shotgun, was
discharged, and -it had evidently been
placed across the body to giv the impres
sion that Mar bad shot himself. It is sup
posed that the old man bad some money -by
mm, and that he waa murdered on that"
account, aa the house waa ransacked and
everything turned upside down. Two men
who have been camped near the place are
suspected of committing the murder, as
they disappeared on the day it was com
mitted, the boat in which they crossed the
river having been found where thev left it,
The matter baa been kept qniet in hope of
securing th murderers. It ia aaid that in
addition to the gunshot wound there is a
hole made by a rifle bullet through the
