A doctor named John B. Davis was put
off the train iu this city early Thursday
morning. He bad been acting wildly, and
the conductor considered it advisable to
place him in charge of the authorities at
this point. He was noticed by a passenger
by reason of his strange antics, and by him
was carefully watched. The passenger,
who was a citizen of The Dalles, got the
man to bed in the Cosmopolitan hotel, ami
watched him all night, and in the morning
the sherriff took him in charge. He came
from Seattle, Wash., and had a ticket for
Denver. Dr. Davis lias a uiuloma from the
Medical Hospital ' rf Long Island, and his
home is in Battle Creek, iVich. On his per
son were found letters from his family and
also from Simon D. French, cx-presideut of
the Miclugau State Medical Society, recom
mending him as a practicing physician for
fourteen years, and as a gentleman and
honorable man in all his dealings. Yester
day he was examined before a board of phy
sicians ami adjudged insane. The sheriff
telegraphed tu his family in Battle CreeK,
and he will be taken to the asylum to-day.
It is very sad that a man of professional
educatiou and so highly recommended
shuuld become an inmate of an insane asylum.

Entered Into Beat
At The Dalles, Oregon, on Thursday
morning, Dec. 12, 1S89, George Thomas
Brickell, senior warden of St. Paul's church,
At a meeting of the vestry of St. Paul's
church a committee was appointed which
drafted the following resolutions:
Whereas. It bas pleased Almighty God
to take from among us our esteemed brother,
George Thomas Brickell, therefore be it
Hesolved, That in bis death we, the rec
tor, wardens and vestry of St. Paul's church,
have lost an earnest and faithful member, a
true and devoted ineuu, ana tne parish an
officer who was ever watchful ot its welfare.
This untirins zeal aud fidelity to the church
together with his cheerful and unfaltering
faith always cheered and eucouraged us.
His duties as senior warden were always
faithfully performed with an ability and
unselfishness that will not fade from our
memory. Iu the Sunday school, of which
he was superintendent, he was an eager aud
earnest worker, guarding well his charge
and carrying it aloug, at times almost un
aided. In Ins private life he was cheerful,
unostentations, charitable to a fault, always
ready to assist the poor and needy, a true
frieutl in the time of trouble, and tree from
all the prevailing yires of bis fellow man.
Be it further
liesolced, That while we bow bubmissively
to the Divine H'lll, we desire to mingle our
sorrow with that of bis many friends both
in the east and iu the west, and that we ex
tend our sincere sympathy to his immediate
relati ves with the comforting reflection that
our loss is - his eternal gain, as he has en
tered into that rest prepared for the people
ot God. "
Hemlved, That a copy of these resolutions
be sent to the bereaved family, and that
they be published in the local and church
papers aud be spread on the minutes.

The Postage Stamp Comedy company ap
peared at the Opera House last evening in
their new farce-comedy. "A Social Session,"
and both the play and players made in in
stuncaneous hit. Very few of the large au
dience present guessed that it was a "first
night," as the piece had been very care
fully rehearsed and not a "break" occurred
to mar the smoothness of an excellent per
formance. Unlike most of the so-called
farce-comedies, "A Social Sessiou" has a
well defined, though not complicated, plot,
the dramatic interest beiuij sustained
throughout. - The characters are all well
drawn, and the situations novel, as was at
tested by the almost continuous shouts of
laughter and applause that greeted the
players and inspired them to further efforts.
The numerous songs and specialties intro
duced were of ahigh order of merit. The
burlesque opera in the third' act was ex

A 31 an Nhot and Killed at Sublimity
Word came to the city Sunday evening
that W. C. Rinse, a married man about 40
year3 old, with wife and three children, who
resided on the Charles Eggeri farm, one and
a half miles eastward from Sublimity, bad
been shot and killed abont noon that day
by Thomas Hammond, of Stayton, a man
nearly the same age also married. The re
port proved true, as far as the death of Mr,
Rigps is concerned, but the manner of tne
death is shrouded in mystery which will re
quire the inquiry of the courts to solve.
The killing occurred on a farm belonging
to Hammond's father and which was occu
pied by Hammond for a time, but be left it
and has been living at Stayton. This farm
joins that occupied by Riggs and the latter
had some cattle on the Hammond place
grazing. At the time of the kil'ing there
were present only Mr. Riggs, Mr. Hammond
and a son of the latter ten or twelve year
old, so that the full facts may never be
known, although the tender age of the lad
may insure a straight story of the sad occur
rence. Hammond claims that the shooting was
accidental, while the gun was in the hands
of the boy and occurred in this wise: All
three were standing around the premises,
Hammond having a double-barrel gun,
when some quails were seen flying around,
one of which Hammond shot, and then the
hoy begged to be allowed to shoot one.
The father handed him the gun, whereupon
it wo3 accidentally discharged by the boy,
the charge lodging in Mr. Riggs' neck, kill
ing him almost instantly.
The Statesman's informant eays that Ham
mond has been telling some contradictory
stories about the matter, and the boy re
fuses to talk, so there is not full faith placed
in the accidental theory in the neighborhood
of the tragedy. It is not known, nor does
he vouchsafe to say, what Mr. Hammond's
business was from Stayton to the farm, some
tour miles, that morning. It is asserted
that he and Mr. Riggs had some hot words
in relation to some matters connected with
the premises in the early part of the day.
It is alto said that the first man who arrived
upon the scene some relative of Mrs.
Riggs -found both barrels loaded of the
gun which it is claimed did the shooting
and which is olaimed to have basu the only
firearm in the crowd.
Both Hammond and his son are nnder
arrest, and there will be an examination of
the affray before a magistrate.

A number of gentlemen met at the town
ball last Tuesday evening to talk over the
advisability of organising a land company,
the prime object of which would be to ad,
vertise the resources of Crook county with
a view to induce a portion of the expected
immigration ot 1890 and succeeding years
to come to this county. But it is to Le r&
gretted that nothing was done, and from
the present oatlook there'seems to be little
hope that Anything wjjl be done in this di
rection in time to catob any of the immigra
tion that will come west next year. The
people v.-ho are in business here and those
who have land for sale arecertaioly neglect
ine their interests by not taking hold of a
movement tbat will induce thoae in search
ot homes to turn this way. Every person
who comes here to loon at the country
spends more or less money, of which every
business man must get his share; and every
new-comer who locates adds just that much
to ttje population and wealth of the country.
That immigration will finally ooine without
invitation aud all the available land in the
county will be settled is evident, but this
may occur too late to be of any bene6t to
the present generation, hence we say all of
U3 are neglecting a golden opportunity when
we fail to take hold of an enterprise that
will develop the country.
