occurred on the Tacoma & Puyallup rail
way, near the Meeker & Radabaugh saw
milL about noon to-day. Near the mill

FIRE AT SCIO.
Albany, June C. The barbershop of
Frank Mack, at Soio, was burned last
night; loss $550. The fire was of incen
diary origin, a quantity of kerosene and
thavings having been lund scattered
about tbe adjoining buildings. This fol

A HORRIBLE DEATH.
Seattle, June 6. A Posl InUUigencer
special from Snohomish says: James Pike,
of the firm ot Mann & Pike, loggers on the
Skykomisb river, met -with a horrible
death this afternoon. A number of work
men were running logs down a steep
chafe half a mile long, when one of the
logs became fastened in tbe chute. Pike
climbed in tbe chute to start it when
another huge log came down with light
ning speed, catcbiugtbe unfortunate man
before be could escape.
Tbe body from tbe waist to the ankles
is entirely gone. A part ot a bip bone
was round sticking in tbe log, which was
floating in the river, and small particles
ot oiooa, nesn ana bones were scattered
in all directions. Tbe trunk and feet
were taken in a canoe to tbe undertaker
in Snohomish. Pike was from New
Brunswick and about 23 years old. The
chute, in which tbe man was killed is so
steep that a log only takes thirty seconds
going trom tbe top into the water. ,
BOY DROWNED AT 8EATTLE.
Seattle, June 6. Charlia 'Wagoner,
the eight-year old son of Henry Wagoner
a laborer, who recently arrived here from
California, was drowned in the bay while

with him was saved by the bravery, of a
man who plunged in and seized him as be
was geing down tbe third time.
INSANITY SAVED HI3.
Colvtlle, Idaho, June 0. William
Howinstein, charged with tbe murder of
James B. Oglesby at this place on the
night of January 22, was arraigued Tues
day in tbe superior court for Stevens
county for trial. Judge Turner, of
Spokane and S. Douglass, of this city,
epresented defendant. The prisoner ad
mitted the killing, but introduced
evidence to show that at tbe time of tbe
tragedy the defendent was not in possess
ion of his mental faculties, arising from a
complication of mental and physical ail
ments. The jury took the case last
evening and this morning returned a
verdict of ''Not guilty, as defendant was
suffering from temporary insanity."
Jndge Blake, upon receiving tbe verdict,
spoke disapprovingly of the decision the
jury bad come to. He said he did not
believe it was either proper or just; that
be did net believe a . particle in tbe
prisoner's insanity, and if be were insane,
he said, we have institutions provided for
just such persons. Howinstein bas many
fnends here who willinglv volunteered to
testify in his behalf. Both tides worked
bard, and tbe attorneys consumed tbe
greater part of yesterday late into tbe
mgnt. -v .
Howinstein shot Oglesby, a negro
waiter, because, as he claimed, tbe latter
had tried to cheat bim out nf 50 cents in
making change. Oglesby pleaded
piteously for bis life, but without avail.
ON THE WAB PATH.
Ashland, Mdnt., June 7. Information
has been received that an order from tbe
war department has been forwarded to
Colonel Arnold, in command at Fort Cus

of the First cavalry to tbe scene of tbe

A BOLD TRAIN ROBBERY.
St. Paul, June 8. The Northern Pa
cific east-bound passenger train wbicb
arrived here to-night was robbed by
masked men near New Salem, N. D., lost
night. The engineer and firemen. were
surprised by two masked men climbing
over the tender and ordering tbe train
stopped at tbe point of revolvers. Ex
press Messenger Angyvine, hearing tbe
shots bred forward and suspecting some
thing, bid $600 in money from the safe,
put out the lights and ran back two miles
to New Salem. The mail car was first
tackled by the robbers and a number of
registered letters rifled, and then the two
robbers turned their attention to the ex
press car. This they found deserted,
much to their chagrin. The passengers
were not touched. One put bis head out
of tbe window during tbe delay, but was
told to get his bead back, and a ouiiet
whizzed past bis bead as a reminder that
tbe orders bad better be obeyed. A posse
of men witb the sheriff, left Mandan this
morning tor the scene of the robbery
The robbers compelled the engineer to
break in tbe door ot the postal car. Only
four masked men were seen at any one
time. Tbe district around New Salem is
peopled by quiet, law abiding settlers, and
tbe robbery is presumed to be the work
ot people unknown In tbat country.
DROWNED IN REACH OF SHORE.
Boston, June 8. This morning eight
young men started for a fipbing excursion
in a sailboat. When about a mile from
Thompson's Island, in Dorchester bay.
tbe boat was struck by a squall and cap
sized. AH but one were swimmers, but,
instead of trying to swim ashore, tbey
tried to climb into the boat, which was so
heavily ballasted tbat tbeir weight would
force bcr beneath the surface, leaving
them struggling in tbe water. la this
manner tbe strength of the men was ex
bausted. and tbey sank, one by one, until
but one was left. The survivor, Walter
Qumlan, had sunk for the last time when

contester. While Howlett was receiver
of the Yakima land office be made a filing
upon 040 acres of land in Yakima valley
under tbe desert land law. Tbis entry
Reed contested, alleging tbat the filing
was on illegal ground. The law forbids
filing upon land by land officers except in
timber culture entry. Howlettsetup the
defense tbat the land riled upon was not
in tbe district of which he was an officer,
but tbe commissioner stated tbis did not
make tbe entry legal. The land involved
is choice, lying level an 1 will soon be

A RAILROAD HASH-UP.
St. Louis, June 9. A very serious rail
road wreck is reported from .Warrenton,
Mo., sixty one'miles west of here on tbe
Wabash road. Two freight trains collid
ed just outside of Warrenton this morn
ing. Both engines and eighteen cars were
wrecked. Seven men were killed and
several wounded. Of eight palace horse
cars laden with race horses en route for
tbe Kansas City races, two were wrecked

A HANGMAN IN DEMAND. .
New York, Juna 0. A special from
Athens says: "Wanted, an executioner,"
bas ever si ace the year 1884 been tbe cry
of tbe judicial authorities. Modern
Greeks are so averse to tbe vocatien of
hangman that no subject of King George
bas hitherto been found willing to perform
tbe behests of law. Meanwhile criminals
condemned to death have been having a
high time. A beadsman bas at length
been found in the person of one Roukis,
himself a convicted assassin who signified
bis readiness to save bis own neck by de
capitating a number of others. Roukis
bas been olaced on board tbe man of war
Nauplia, which will make a trip around
tbe Greet coast, landing where occasion
may require and proceeding to . towns
where murderers are awaiting their doom.
There are eleven of tbe miscreants to be
dealt witb. The last capital execution in
Greece occurred in 1881. In Greece tbe
public executioner is regarded as a uis -honored
pariah. wb. any citizen is at
liberty to maim or kill, and even oa board
the Nauplia it bas been found expedient
to protect Roukis from the resentment of
the crew by confining bim iu an iron cage
from which be will only emerge when hie
services are required.
. THE SHIP PALESTINE.
Seattle, June 9. Considerable anx
iety is felt in the fate of tbe ship Pala
tine,' c 'eared from San Francisco for
Tacoma to load coal May 16. It is now
ten days overdue. Tbe ship Ajatka,
which cleared from tbe same port a week
later, arrived last Thursday and reported
that the Palestine had not been sighted
during tbe voyaae. During tbe first week
out tbe Palatini, it is thought, probably
encountered beavy northern winds, which
drove ber far to tbe south, where she is
now likely helplessly dntting, becalmed
in southern seas, and possibly bas gone to
to tbe bottom during the gale. Palatine
was one of tbe Carbon bill colliery, en
gaged in caning coal fromTacoma to San
Francisco. Sbe was a wooden vessel,
commanded by Captain H. Hayden, and
A Washington City correspondent of
the Chicago Inter Ocean l'uruihhes the
following interesting details Of tbe Tariff
Bill as it passed the house and indications
of its tate in the senate. He said
"Tbe Tariff Bill as passed by tbe house
is in every respect just as agreed upon by
the Repuolican members of the Ways aud
Means committee, except that three
amendments to their original bill proposed
by tbe committee and agreed to by the
committee ot the whole were deleated
tbe house by a few votes. ' One of tbe
amendments made the duty on jute yarn
. rr . . . . ..
oo per cent, as at present, instead OI 0
per cent, as first proposed, and tbe other
two amendments increased the pound
duty 5c on woolen yarns and woolen cloth
valued at 30s per pound or less. Tbe
changes made in tbe till by the Ways and
Means committee and agreed to by the
nouse reduced tbe duty on guis valued
at less than $12 to the present rate of 35
per cent; reduced tbe rate on burlaps to
1 per pound, and on bags to 2c per
pound included oriental rugs in the
Wilton uarpet paragraph : placed on the
tree list lresh bsu caught in tresh water,
except salmon leaving all other fish (ex
cept herring) dutiable at lc per pound
changed the duty on carpet wools to 23
per cent, ad valorem, oil wools at not more
than 13 and 50 per cent, on carpal wools
vaiuea aoove ide; provided lor specific
duties on kid gloves equivalent to the
present 50 per cent, rate; reduced the duly
on rougn granite and freestone to 11c per
cuoic loot, and on dressed and polished
stone to 40 per cent; made cloths made
partly ot silk and partly of wool dutiable
as woolen goods; reduced the duty on all
oristlea per pound, la other respects tbe
oiu as passed is tbe same as tuit origin
ally reported by the Wa7s and Means
Sugar, up to and including No. 16,
together with molasses, is made free, and
reboed sugar above No. 16 is given a duty
or 4-lUc per pound. A bounty of 2c pe:
pound is given the home producer of
cane, sorguum and beet sugar. Contrary
to expectation, tne sugar schedule proved
to be one ot tbe strangest in the bill. It
is predicted, however, that the senate
will restore sugar to tbe dutiable list.
'The proposition to increase the dutv
on tin plate to 2 2-10c after July 1, 1893,
went through safely, and inasmuch as the
senate included a similar provision in
their bill two years ago. it is Drobuble
tuat tbis will become a law.
"Tbe duty on clothing, wool is increas
ed 1 cent per pound, and tne duty on all
mnnufactures ot wool increased in larger
proportions as it was conceded that the
tariff ot 1883 did not give the woolen in
dustry proper protection. It is reported
that the Senate Finance committee will
concede this increase of duty on wool, but
will cut down the duties accorded by tbe
bill passed by tbe house to manufactures
of wool. Tbe bill reduces duties on
common cottou goods, but increases the
duty on the finer grades, including cottou
"There is no mciease of duties on silk
manufactures except velvets.
"Manufactures of flax of common quali
ties are increased to 50 per cent when the
bill goes into effect, and of fine qualities
(except bleached linens) after Jauuary 1,
1894; until that time fine qualities con
tinue at 35 per cent.
"There is co change in tbe lumber
schedule beyond the reduction of 50 cents
per thousand on white pine boards and 14
cent per foot oa squared timber. The
proviso wbicb adds tbe export duty laid
upon logs and manufactured lumber lru
ported from any country levying such ex.
port duty does not take effect until March

Morgan JLUIard shot and . Killed by
On laat Saturday a shooting affray oc
curred on Big Elk, in this county, which
resulted in the death of Morgan Lillard, at
the bands of his son-in-law, Lewis Feagles.
It was the result of an old feud which had
existed between tbe two men for a Dumber
of years. Lillard had threatened tbe life of
Mr. Feagles on different occasions, and a
short time ago Feagles came to this city and
asked for a warrant for the arrest of Lillard,
but tbe authorities told him that they could
do no more than bind bim over to keep the
peace, and this Mr. Feagles did not consider
of soy use, and so, upon the ad y ice of
friends, he purchased a pistol to defend
himself with in case of necessity. Oa last
Saturday morning while cutting some brush
on bis place, and alongside tbe public road,
he saw Lillard coming toward hiin. He
leaned on bis ax, waiting for him to come
up. Lillard came up within a short dis
tance, and drew his revolver on Feagles,
making the remark, ''Now have got you,"
and tired, when Feagles drew bis gun and
returned the fire. Both men fired fiye
shots apiece, 'emptying their revolvers.
Feagles only received a slight wound on the
wrist, but Imlard received a shot in the
abdomen which caused his death the fol
We understand tbat an inquest was held
Wednesday, before a justice of the peace,
but have not learned the result. Mr.
Feagles came to town Tuesday and de
manded a hearing. There was no arrest
made, but there will be a preliminary ex
amination before Justice Carlile to-morrow.
The sentiment of the neighborhood in
which the shooting occurred seems te. be
unanimously in favor of Mr. Feagles, and,
trom all we can learn, he will undoubtedly
be cleared by tbe preliminary examination.
Lillard has ben a troublesome character in
tbat neighborhood for a number of years,
and it is only surprising that he has not
met this fate before. While we deplore
any occasion which calls for the taking of
human life, still, when a man makes a prac
tice of threatening the lives of others, as
Lillard bad done, we cannot but think that
he bas met bis just deserts, and that the
community is better off without him.

charged upon him and caught him upon ber
horns. Fortunately the child's clothing
tore away and his mother and friends chased
on the cow, before any injury was inflicted;
but it was a narrow escape for the baby.

An historical incident, which has not
been published yet, was told us to-day by
Antoioe Etienne. He was at the Cascades
two days before the massacre, and Peter,
a friendly Iudian, warned Simpson,

on the Cascades. Hj had gathered all the
arms from the Indians as a ' guaranty of

agent to protect them, as tbe bostiles had
warned him that in two days they would
burn - the buildings and kill tbe people.
Simpson paid no attention to old Peter, and
the massacre was most fatal and disastrous.

Review: C. W. Brown, an engineer in the
employ of The Dalles Southern R. R. Co.,
spent last Sunday in mnevuie. ne says
the company is in earnest about building a
road from Tbe Dalles reaching south into
tbis county, and tbat a corps of surveyors
will be put into the field in about three
weeks, who will loc tte the line as rapidly as
possible. He s-ys be bas made observation
of the route out by Fifteen Mile and across
the Deschutes west of Snerear s, and that it
is a practicable route. This ia indeed en
couraging news to the people of Crook, for
they have about given up all hope or the
O. P. being completed at any early date.
Whenever tbs building of The Dalles South
ern is ensured ail oi tms county, ana es
pecially Prineville, will take a long stride
of progress, and times wi 1 be as lively as
those daya of old when the early settlers
were all buccaros and wore twenty dollar

Last Monday at Tacoma articles incorpn
atinz tbe Northern Pacific and Idaho Riil

company is to build and operate a road
from a point of junction with the Spokane
and Palouse railroad in Whitman county,
to Lake Wabo iu Nes Perce county. Tbe
road will be nearly 100 miles in length and
will pass through tbe towns of Moscow,
Cornwall, Julietta and Lewiston. The
company is authorized to build branch rail
roads to such other points or places in
Idabo or Washington or Montana as shall
be determined. The capital stock is $2,-
000,000. The term of existence of the com
pany is placed at hity years, snd tbe place
of b isiness is Tacoma. It will be readily
seen that this road will penetrate a rich
section of Idaho and prove a valuable out
let fr that section by wsy of the Northern

Oregon Slate VTeatiter Bureau in cs-operation
with U. S. Signal Service, central office,
Portland, Oregon. Per week ending June
The fore part of the week was cool and
cloudy with rain, hail and snow in the
mountains. The rainfall was poorly dis
tributed, aud there was not the benefit de
rived from it that was expected. The latter
part of the week was cloudless, dry and
warm. On Friday and Saturday the tem
perature was above 90 degrees in msny sec
tions of the state. More rain is needed.
Rain and cool weather will yet produce
good crops. Delayed reports from Eastern
Oregon show that on May 28th, 29th and
30th frosts occurred that did damage to
vegetables, especially potatoes, tomatoes
and pease; corn, rye and barley were also
The month of May had a high average
temperature, and the rainfall was very
light; as a result, the crop prospects are not
so encouraging as might be desired, es
pecially hay and late sown grain. The fall
and early sown wheat continue to have a
favorable outlook. Tbe fruit prospects are
good. Strawberries are very plentiful.
Cherries are ripe and the trees are loaded
with them. General reports indicate a
light hay crop. Crops in Tillamook county
are all promising. Throughout tbe Willam
ette valley rain is badly needed. Wheat
fields are burnt in places. Much of the
spring sown grain did not come up. In the
Umpqua and Rogue river valleys the pros
pects are brighter. The coast counties are
especially promising for good crops. The
Grand Ronde and Walla Walla yalleys, and
greater portion of Umatilla couuty, as
well as the major portion of Union county,
have the best prospects for crops in Eastern
regon. In the valleys of Wallowa county
heat, oats, barley and rye are doing very
well. Wasco, Sherman and sections of Gil-
am county appear to be the worst affected
iue ary weatner. in lTook, Uraut,
Baker, Lake, Harney and Klamath counties
the frost of May 28th and 29th did the
most damage, and in these counties tbe
grass is rapidly drying up.
The cool weather stopped the melting of
the snow in the monntains, as a result all
rivers are rapidly falling. - The present
warm weather may cause them to rise again.

The Aberdeen Snioide.
The man, J. O. Smith, found dead at
Aberdeen, Sunday, no doubt committed
suicide. After hearing the circumstances
tbe coroner decided that it was unnecessary
to bold an inquest. Smith came to Aber
deen Friday from South Bend. Daring the
day be bought a second-hand Winchester
rifle, telling the man from whom be bought
it bs was going up on tbe Humptulip river
hunting. He left the gun in a saloon and
spent the night in a house cf ill-fame, going
to his room about 4 o'clock in the morning.
Tbe gun be hod taken to his room just be
fore dark. Seating himself on a chair he
had evidently placed the muzzle of the gun
directly against his body near the heart, and
touching off the trigger with a lath that
lay near by, death resulted instantly.
On bis person was found $182 in money
a draft for $600 and a contract calling for
about $600 more upon the completion of a
dyking contract at South Bend. There was
nothing left to show why he committed tha
deed. Ha came to Gray's harbor last Sep.
tember from New Westminister, B. C, and
had no 'relatives in this country, being a
native of Sweden. Temporary insanity
must have been the cause, as be was in good
health and bad considerable property bo
aides the money found on him.
Asotin Sentinel: The flag carried by J. J.
Lewis post this memorial day calls np much
of tbe history of tbe late war. It was the
company flag of Co. H, 9th Illinois Mounted
lufantry, and from the battle of Corinth,
October 3, 1862, through all the vicissitudes
of an almost constant struggle, was never
lost. It bas a record of 108 battles aud
skirmishes from that date forward to the
close of the war. From "Atlanta to the
Sea" and thence onward it was borne to.
Goldsboro and Washington, where it was
earned in the grand review. When the
company was mustered out, this flag was
presented by the captain te comrade Frank
Huber who has guarded it with jealous
