SHOT HIS WIFE AND HIMSELF.
Spokane Falls, Dec. 6. Th;s morning
at 10 o'clock R. L. Sanderline, a pastry
cook, shot his wife and attempted to kill
her. Thinking he had done so he blew
his own brains out. Both were colored.
They had not lived happily for some
time, cccupying the same house but dif
ferent rooms. A few days ago she ie
him and began proceedings for divorce.
This enraged Sundcrhue and was the
cause of the tragedy to-day.
His first shot missed bcr, when he
caught and threw her on the floor and
placing a pistol behind her car, hred.
The man lingered unconscious until 2:40
this afttruoon, when he died. The
woman will live. Sanderhne's father, in
Denver, keeps a large barber shop and is

NEWS FB'.'M THE ORIENT.
San Francisco, Dec. 6. By the ar
rival of the new steamer China, advices
are received from Hong Kong to No
vember 13, and from Yokohama to No
vember 22. Chinese troops have suffered
a rather sereve defeat from savages in
South Formosa, three cr four hundred of
them being killed.
Recently a mob attacked the China In

who attempted to interfeie. The mis

The German steamer Duburg, which
left Singapore for Hong Kong on Octo
ber 25, has not since been heard of, and
it is l tared she may have encountered the
recent typhoon and foundered. If so,
the disaster is an appalling one, for she
bad on board 400 passengers.
IT RAINED QUITE HARD.
San Francisco, Dec. 8. One of the
heaviest rainstorms for years bag prevailed
throughout California for the past two
weeks. In a few portions of Northern
California the raibfall has been the
heaviest ever known, some damage hav
ing resulted therefrom, especially in the
low lands of the Sacramento valley. In
general, however, the rain has been most
welcome, and grass and grain are spring
ing from the ground as tbey have never
done before at this season of the year. A
largely increased area of fall-sown grain
will result. Telegraphic advices indicate
that thousands of acres of oranges and
fruit trees will be planted in Northern
and Southern Calfornia, aod hundreds of
new vineyards will be started in the
Fresno raisin district.
SEVERAL BAD LANDSLIDES.
Santa Cruz, Dec. 8. The rainstorm
continues with a fall of two inches since
last report. The San Lorenzo river is the
highest to-day since 1873, but no real
damage resulted. A landslide on the
narrow gauge railroad, between Wrights
and Alma prevented any trains od that
road arriving or leaving to-day. Bridge
No, 1, on Boulder creek on the branch
across Zyante creek was carried away this
morning and will prevent trains running
on that road for several davs. There is
also a landslide reported on the same line
this side of Boulder creek and two ou the
same line between Glenwood and Felton.
A landslide of 150 feet occurred on tbe
Loma Prielo rancho, on the broad guage
of the Southern Pacific.
FLOODS IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.
Gilboy, Dec. 8. Shortly after noon
to-day Uvas creek, one mile east of town,
overflowed and ran into Gilroy. The
southern end of the city is covered with
water, which is in some places, three feet
deep. It is still rising, necessitating peo
ple removing their furniture, etc., from
tbeir houses. Several barns and many
fences have been washed away. Tbe
damage cannot be estimated at present.
but will probably reach several thous
and dollars. Rain fell heavily all day.
and the business portion of the town
is in danger of being Hooded. Store
keepers are packing thtir goods upon
TRUNK FLOATING IN THE BAY. -
Olympia, Dec. 8 About 10 o'clock
this morning a trunk, the lock of which
bad been broken, was found floating in
the bay near this city. A number of
papers were found in it, the other con
tents, if any, having disappeared. From
information received from Chief of Police
Savidge tbe trunk probably belonged to
James N. Ashe, who formerly worked in
the Parlum office in this city and who
left for Buckley some weeks ago. A
badge found in the trunk shows that Mr.
Asbe was a member of Typographical
Union No. 1. How the trunk came to be
found in the bay is a mystery which time
will probably unravel.

and regards himself as en unfortunate
man in happening to pass ulong the road
about the time the stage was robbed and
in his having slight points of resemblance
to those ot the real robber, beveral oth
cials here, who have talked with Lewis,
state quite positively their belief in the
man's innocence. Lew-,3 says he is quite
willing to return .North, as he can easily
disprove the charges against him.
THE STRIKXITG GERMAN MINERS,
liERLiN, Dec. 8. Meetings of miners
were held to-dav at Dirt ru and, Essen and
Ge!ssnkirchen, at which it was resolved
to wait until the loth inst. to see if all
the colliery owners accept the advice of
the Essen colliery owners committee,
which recommended a redress of the
grievances of which the men complain.
A FAMILY POISONED.
Tacoma, Dec. 8. The family of Mr.
Foyle of this city, comprising a brother,
three children and a hired girl, were all
dangerously poisoned yesterday by eating
'Rough ou rats." which had become
mixed with the flour from which their
bread was made. They quickly com
menced vomiting, and had it Bot been for
the prompt response of Dr. Tuttle the re
sult might have proved fatal. It was
five hours before the doctor was able to
leave the six patients, and some of them
are still in bed.
THE MASSACRE OF Dlt. PETERS.

AN EYE WITNESS
Lisbon, Dec. 8. Aa Englisman. agent

Janeiro, who was aboard the Atrnto, suid :
Un bunday the telegraph W is seized and
no messages were delivered, not -even
thoe addiessed to the British Consul. I
went to the consulate at 10 o'clock in the
morning and waa stopped by soldiers.
Mr. Nicolin, acting BiitUh consul, was
stopped also. We feared exchange would
fall to nothing, but the provisional gov-
tnment noticed the Knglh bank man
gers that if they aliowtd exchange to
fall their establishment would be sup-
iressed. Nothing could exceed the feei
ng of kindness which every one, includ-
ng the provisional ministers, entertained
towards the emocror, but the cowardice
of those who ought to have resisted was
contemptible. The wealthy classes were
timorous rather than indiffurcut. The
only possible secessionist movement will
be Irom the Germans. The government
has provided against the publication of
anything unfavorable or disquiet! ig.
Even telegrams to foreign ministers wjre
quietly suppressed. The Rio legislature
on the 18th approved ot the reconstruc
tion of the constitution on the basis of
thorough democracy. The same day was
made a public holiday throughout Brazil.
The minister of marine, at the brad of a
small tody of sailors and marines tued
to suppress what he believed to be a re
volt of infantry at their barracks, but the
marines fraternized with the rebels, who
summoned the minister to surrender.
This he refused to do point blank, and
tried to draw bis revolver.. The soldiers
immediately shot him down in the pres
ence ot another general standing at bis
side. The disaffected troops anticipated
that tbe government would move against
them, and at the hesd of two regiments
of cavalry an i a battery ot artillery Da
Fonseca eurrounded Santa Anna barrack,
where ministers bad assembled. The
troops inside fraternized with those out
side. The barrack gites wete thrown
open and the ministers witnessed General
da Fonseca's triumphal entry and ex ir, sa
luted by tbe trooos. With the exception
of the foregoing incident this concluded
the business. Telegrams were printed in
the Rio papers to try and show that
Europe was approving the change of
regime. A telegram dated London, Nov.
19, from Rothschild's to the finance min
ister was published in English and Portu
guese. It expressed Rothschild's un
feigned satisfaction with the assurance or
the government that it would adhere to
all contracts, and also the hope that the
government would strain every nerve to
maintain the entire vast dominion of
Brazil. The Commescio (Opporio pul
lishes a dispatch from Rio Janerio, dated
December G, which states that Barbosa,
minister ot finance, had resigned and had
been replaced by Senor Saldanha Marinha.
A TERRIBLE ACCUSATION.
St. Louis, Dec. 8. A special to the
Republic from St. Paul says: Charles S.
Ostrom, until last Friday night cashier
and bookkeeper of the Minneapolis de
railment of tbe St. faul Pioneer Pres. is
suspected of having started the fire which
consumed the Minneapolis Tribune build
ing on the nigbt of November 30th, and
in which seven men lost their lives. He
was charged, on Friday night, with hav
ing stolen $2200 of Pioneer Press funds,
and placed under arrest. lie admitted
bis guilt and desired to do all he could to
help his employers to straighten out the
books. The terrible rumor was soon
abroad that Ostrom fared the Tribune
building to hide the evidence of his guilt.
He was seen in jail and strenuously de
nied the story. He evinced much emotion
and said he was quite sure be could es
tablish an alibi. Ontroin's downfall is"
due to gambling, and is a great surprise
to alt pt his friends. He has been mar
ried but abont three months.

A Meetiua; After Slany Veara.
The following from the Eugene Jour
nal is a very romantic affiir. The heioine
is Mrs. Wheeler, the healer and the
woman who located tbe drowned bodies
at the Siuslaw. During the war she
served as nurse in the Uuion service and
had many thrilling experiences, among
them being the following: She was
present at the battle of Spotsylvania. At
the commencement of the batt'e a Union
officer rode up to her and bunded her a
package of papers with the request that
she should Keep them sale until the bat
tle was over, and then if he (the officer)
should not live to call for them, to deliver
the package at headquarters.
In the course of the fight a flank was
turned and Mrs. Wheeler aod the rest of
the hospital nurses captured. Upon
searching her person, the papers were
found and proved to be the work of a
Union spy, who bad been inside the rebel
lines. She was at occe arraigned before
a court martial, and notwithstanding ber
statement of bow she came by the papeis
aod repeated protestations of innocence,
she was formally convicted of being a spy,
and sentenced to be hatged at sunrise
the next morning. She was then taken
by a guard of three soldiers, and confined
in a small gunrd house which had but one
small aperture admitting light and air,
and through that aperature she saw the
erection of the gallows on which she was
Inside the guard-house there was noth
ing but the bare floor of earth and two
dry goods boxes standing aguinst a wall.
Thatmgnt one ot the guards entered
the guard-house with a piece ot coi n bread
and a tin cup ol water lor tier supper.
Mrs. Wheeler spoke. The guard stopped
He then retired aud locked the door upon
ber again. Later in tbe night she heard
yoice at the aperature say, "Move the
small box!" She moved the box and
discovered an aperature which proved to
be a tunnel. Through this tunnel she
worked her way, on ber bunds and knees,
for about one fourth of a mile, when she

In 1853 tho . highest magistrate was a
justice of the peace, and ' Mr. Johu D.
Woodward, nojv .of the Locks, occupiod
that positson. A man was brought belore
him for larceny, and the evidence being
clear he was fined $100 or fifty days in jail.
The man had no money, aud the nearest
calaboose was in Vancouver. After consid
ering the matter, Justice Woodward came
to the conclusion that he must take the
prisoner to that point. Shouldering bis
rifle he forc-d the culprit to lead, and so
conyey him to the destined place. When
he arrived at Vancouver he was informed
that that was a military post, aud the offi
cers bad no right to inrarcerate tbe priso
ner. Ordering his man to "about lace" ho
marched him back to the Cascade, and on
arriving at this place told the thief that,
seeing he had no money, he would take his
note for H-W-hne and expenses and costs.
The man willingly gave the amount and
was discharged. Nothing has been heard
of the fellow sinco, and ou asking Mr.
Woodward about the promissory note a few
daysvago,be said it was still bearing inter
est 2 per cent a month aud that it was
still in his possession. When that note is
collected, Uncle Johnnie has promised the
