Attorian: Last Friday night at Ilwaco,

admission of the state of Washington, a
young man named Ross fired a shot at Miss
Ella Markham, a well known young lady of
Ilwaco. The ball struck the floor,-which
was waxed, vxd glanced, going into the
wall. Ross was immediately arrested and
handcuffs placed on him. An attempt was

presence of sheriff Turner, who fought for
his prisoner, it was frustrated, and the law
will be allowed to take its course. The
cause of the shooting was jealousy.

The Baker City Reveille, In commenting
on the article in this paper urging the
sinking of an artesian well, says: "We
would suggest that if The Dalles ever gets
a supply of good water, she must do as
Baker City did, get in and drill. Our
water supply wss for years a vexed ques
tion, and it surprised us to see how easy
it was settled after the first stroke was
made with a pick. Like the rock-bound
fountain that responded to the touch of
the rod in the hand of Moses, the bills
that overlook our city gave freely of their
pent up store and forever settled, the cry
of Baker City for pure drinking water."
Astorian: James Thompson, a well known
resident of this city, was drowned from off
the steamer R. R. Thompson, this side of
Westport. at 2:40 yesterday afternoon.
The steamer had left IKeatport on her way
down, and was near the month of the
slough. Thompson was last seen on the
lower deck, and was not seen to fall in the
water. Suddenly Messrs. Smith, Anstin
sen, and other Astoria passengers saw him
as he rose to the surface, astern of the boat.
The boat was immediately stopped, a small
boat lowered, but when within about a
hundred feet of the unfortunate man, who
was miking desperate efforts to reach the
boat, he sank, and was seen no more.

Hissing Two JHonths
About two months sgo, so we are in
formed, a young man named Gordon, living
a few miles from this city, left bis mother's
farm driving a band of horses to the Wil
lamette valley over tbe Cascade mountains,
the proceeds of which he intended to de
yote to a coarse of study at tne Business
college in Portland. His mother packed
his trunk, and sent it to his address in
Portland. Nothing has been heard from
him and the trunk has not been called for.
The mother is wild with grief, and cannot
conjecture what has become of her darling
bov, whether he bas been murdered or per
ished in the mountains. All inquiries she
has made bas elicited no reply, and the un
certainty of his fate is worse than it she
knew he was dead. Every effort hss been
made to know whether be has arrived at his
destination, bat the latest information she
has is wben young Gordon left the last set
tlement before he entered the mountains.
It may have been that after journeying in
the mountains the horses strayed and he
may haye perished in the canyons, or he
may have reached the settlement, disposed
of his animals, and was then murdered for
the money in bis possession.

I tema from tbe Lock.
Cascade Locks, Nov. 18, 1889.
A few items from this section may not be
out of place, and I will try and furnish
One of the most cruel murders ever per
petrated was committed about nine miles
below here some days ago. A man named
Lewis Marr lived all alone in Washington
about four miles below tbe Cascades. He
was a man of some means, and somewhat
o ld in bis manners, but one that every
neighbor liked, and to whom the needy
never appealed in yain. - A few days ago
some of the neighbors missed him and com
menced a search, finally finding him in his
pasture, shot through the body with a
bullet, and in the arm and breast with buck
shot. His head was badly cut and mangled
with a heavy instrument, apparently an
iron bar. What the object of the murder
ers waa no one can tell, as there did not
appear to be anything disturbed about the
house. There was tonnd on the body $69
and $60 in the house. Nothing is missed
except a revolver and some cartridges, so
far as known at present. Who committed
tbe deed no one appears to. know, and the
coroner's jury are trying to unravel the
mystery at present.
There are no items ot importance .except
the one mentioned. H'ork on the locks will
clone this month, and it is thought times
will be very dull here. But I think it will
not make much difference, as Reed, Peal,
Hersey and the other Norwegians never'
spend any money here, and the citizens can
live just as well without them. I bear the
wish expressed every day that the trio will
never be 'owed to return. But that
dees not make much difference, as if they
did not come back, others just as bad
wonld take their places. If we get an ap
propriation it is very strange that govern
ment will pet mi t such men to control the
works. It is currently reported here that
Reed gets $5 per month from all of those
Norwegians who are employed on the
works, and that Hersey furnishes his fam
ily with grub for running them into the
mess house. I notice all those who board
outside are the first to be discharged. Not
one of those wbo are reported to pay Reed
$5 a month have been discharged; yet I
do not know the truth of these reports; but
they look to be founded in fact.
We are having a large increase in popula
tion. Mrs. Jordan bas a fine boy; also

Another Hissing Man.
Another man has dropped oat of public
sight suddenly and Chief- of Police Barry
and bis officers are trying to learn what bas
become of him. This time it is an old man
named J. Bennett, who arrived in this city
a week ago last night, and pnt np at the
Astor house. He appeared to have plenty
of money and told Mr. Warren, the chief
clerk, that he was a stock grower and had
a large stock farm near Ellenaburgh, with
some 500 head of cattle on it. He came to
Astoria, he said for a visit only, and in
tended putting in two or three weeks here.
He left (200 in the hotel safe, and np to
Sunday night, when he was last seen, he
drew out ail except $86. On that night he
took the $S5 and went out. Since then no
trace of bim bas been found, and his bag
gage ia still at the hotel.
From what can be learned, Bennett put
in the whole of Saturday night in the lojrer
end of tbe city, playing cards for money.
He lost considerable, it would seem, as he
made a remark to that effect to the night
clerk of the hotel when he went there
about 6 o'clock Sunday morning.
Tbe missing man is described as heavy
set, about 5 feet 8 or 9 inches in bight,
ruddy complexion, black hair aud smooth
shaven, with the exception of short, iron-
gray whiskers, growing under the chin. He
is about 60 years of age and wore a dark
Tbe Htory of So-Ho-SIe,
W. W. Journal
This morning the court resumed the case
of So-Ho-Me. Tbe defendant's story of the
killing of Ah Kow is substantially as fol
lows: "Ah Kow owed me 20, which about
three days previous to the tragedy I asked
him for, and he said, if I would come in
three days, he would pay me. When I
called on Ah Kow on the appointed day, be
was chopping wood, and when I asked him
for the money he was mad and aaid he
would chop me with the axe; he said that
he had the money, bnt that he would not
pay me. Then I threatened to sue him,
whereupon he drew a pistol from his pocket
and taking from it a cloth in which it was
wrapped he prepared to shoot me. I then
grabbed Ah Kow's hand and the pistol fell
to the ground going off as it fell. Picking
up the pistol I ran 60 or 70 feet; Ah Kow
following me with a knife in his hand.
When Ah Kow came np I grabbed hold of
his hand which held the knife and in hia
endeavors to free himself he probably waa
cut. Then breaking loose from him I ran
around a brush heap; Ah Kow following
and I fired three or four times at him, when
he fell. Then I threw away the pistol and
came down town and gave myself up.

kss, m vxxa oay, captain James Hill
commanding, ran on to North Spit, at tbe
mouth of the Umnqua river Tuesday eve
ning, and soon went to pieces, not one of
tne crew or the passengers escaping.
Sbe was on her return trip from Astoria,
where she had to go to take a lot of
Chinamen, lately discharged from tbe
canneries on Coos bay. At 3 P. M. Tues
day she was seen off Upper Ten Mile,
steaming slowly down tbe coast just out
side tbe breakers, which were running
very high, and at 6 o'clok ber whistle
was heard off the mouth of tbe Umpqua.

was patrolled tor miles to the south, bnt
no bomes were discovered. Other parties
woo came nown tne coast noni tbe north
reported that they had seen no bodies in

ot seafaring men is that she had sprung a
leak, and that the captain was attempting
to get into tbe river in order to save tbe
lives of those on board, and either mis
calculated bis position or was blown out
