One lone and forlorn individual, who,

poetry but sound inductive philosophy in

they kept the money of the army stand

therein, had been extracted. The burglars
evidently were well acquainted with tbe

only one opened, .bnirance was effected
by means of .a skeleton key with which

Aelorian: A dastardly attempt was made
last night to wreck the 8:30 eleotric car
near the old tannery. R. B. Smart was
driving at a fair pace with several passen

was stretched across the track and the csr
smashed into it with a jerk, which sent the
two front wheels completely off the track

Salem Statesman: By to-day the governor
will have disposed of all tne bills that re

time during which bills may be acted upon
expires and some vetoes and spprovals may
be expected. The last ot tbe 200 bills
passed will be acted npon finally to-day.
Senate bill No. 55 will be vetoed, as it is a
dnnlicate of a house bill that has been filed.
Of course there ill be a couple of game and
fish commissioner vetoes, as three bills on
the same subject have passed one for a fish
and name protector, one for nve commi
sioners. and one for a fish and game warden.
The last mentioned has been filed, so the
conclusion is drawn that house bills No. 110

Transcript; A lady over at Hillsboro has

man in front of bim he was nnable to. wit

goes, the man's daring was rewarded. - The

man with an expression that seemed to say,
"Oh, I wish I were Corbett," and swept
out of the house in great anger.
Henry Boyer and Andrew Hanson, two of

they came to Crate's point they found a belt

A Vancouver paper gives the following
account of the experiences of two men on a
scow in the Columbia: "For seyeral days
previous to the break in the ice g"rge at
RyaA's point, a scow was observed to be far
ont in the ice, a prisoner. People were seen
npon it moving about for several days, bat
knowledge of the ownership or occupancy
beyond this seemed to be bard to obtain
until Saturday. Two brothers named But
ler, who had lived at Cape Horn, had the
sco1 and they lived on it. It was caught
in the ice pack one night and steadily moved
down the river with it. Thev bad food and
fuel, and kept very comfortable through
the storms. They landed about two miles
above Vancouver Saturday evening, making
in the three week tweutv-hve miles. Ibe
deserted scow broke loose and passed down
the river Sunday afternoon, when the first
break in tbe gorge occurred."
Journal: W. W. Baker is still state food
commissioner. Ibe legislature elected
Charles' Holman, a son of Captain Charles
Holman. under tbe new law, to be state
tood and dairy commissioner for two years.
A bill repealing the old law under which
Holman was elected, was filed with the sec
retary of state last night, so there is a va
cancy, and the old state tood commissioner
probably holds over according to the consti
tution, until bis successor is appointed. If
Mr. Holman had been elected under tbe
new law after going into effect, or had been
named in the bill, he wonld be in lor a term
of two years. As it is he is not.

Governor Pennoyer has an ardent admirer
tbe person ot George W, Barnes, of
Prinevilie, Crook county, who writes to bis
excellency: "Snow blockades have almost
isolated ns this winter, but it chinooked
long enough the other day to open a passage
for the news that Oregon's cranky governor
had vetoed the world's fair appropriation
bill, and We want to reach across the snow-
lrifts and shake. During the last five or
six vears nine teuths of the boy babies born
in tbis county were named Sylvester Pen

roads and you refused to go on with the
Democratic procession, but poked on in a
by-path all to yourself, we seriously thought
of petitioning the legislature to pass a gen

to tbis city,in which Capt. John McNulty,
of the Regulator, received frequent men
tion for his untiring efforts to entertain
his gnests. This was from Ibe pen of
Mrs. E. J Sampson, and excerpts from it
were reprinted in a co temporary, in which
the name of Captain McNulty, we are in
formed, was purposely eliminated. Wo
haye read the article and the excepts, and
there is no doubt it was garbled in this
particular. To show .that tbe efforts of
tbe captain were appreciated we are re
quested to publish the following letter
from the lady :
Cold water, Dec. 11, 1892.
Capt. J. Mctiutty: '
DbabSik Perhaps you remember my
self and husband riding in the pilot house
of the Regulator one afternoon iu October.
You so charmingly entertained us with
jour stories of early life along the Colum
bia, it afforded me many interesting items
tor my articles for the paper tor which I
was writiog. I send you the number
with the "Columbia River" article. . Any
fault discovered in the telling oi the sto
ries, please attribute to my defective
memory. I shall never forget that lovely
view of Mt. Hood, the moonlight night,
or Capt. McNulty, who helped to make
the trip one of great pleasure.

Miss Ida Hewitt, of Cairo, W. Va.t who
is said to be the on'y fern tie locomotive en
gineer in tbe world, has been engaged by
the women commissioners of the world's
fair to rnn the first train over the grounds
on tne opening day of the exposition. She
will leave for Chicago about a week before
the opening day. She is a pretty girl, and
lnring tne first trip of the engine will wear
a costume of a Spanish girl of the 14th cen
tury. In reply to a proposition made to
Miss Hewitt to become a member of the
brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, it is
reported - that she . replied that, while she
coold not find it in her heart to become a
brother to them, she would be a sister to
tbem as long as she lived. The commis
sioners are said to have had a great deal of
tronble in inducing her to run the engine at
the fair, as she shrank from appearing an a
sort of "freak." The road npon which Miss
Hewitt is now running regularly is the
Cairo & Little Kanawana, owned mostly by
the girl's father, a man of wealth. She is
popular socially, and is a model house
keeper. The Union Whist Club.

The Union whist club was entertained
last evening by Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Hob

whist, ten tables being arranged for. Tbe
club are becoming rapid - players and
twenty-five hands were soon played. Mrs.
H. Glenn received the first prize a beauti
ful vase. Flaying whist is an incentive to
ippetite, and it was with joyons hearts that
all proceeded to the elegant sapper provided
by Lr. ljogan lor tne club, i he toothsome
viands rapidly disappeared, even more so
than the cards were played. Among those
present were: Judge and Mrs W L Brad--haw,

The trouble from washouts at bridges
near Hay station, on the Spokane branch
of the Union Pacific, will, it is reported,
continue for a day or two longer. A few
bents in bridges Nos. 14 and 16 have been
washed away. Five carloads of ties were
sent up Friday from Pendleton.and a Dile
driver and piline were dispatched to tbe
scene from Bridal Veil, via Umatilla, to
repair the damage. A train arrived in
Pendleton on tbe branch at 1:40 o'clock
Saturday with passengers who left Spo

the damaged bridges. Tbey were trans

more. Thts train was brought in bv (ton-

J W trat.arinnfi Death.
On Thursday last the dead body of John
Kennitick. a bachelor wbo resided in the
neighborhood of Kent, this county, was
found on a private road or trail leading
from deceased's house to the residence of
Joe Elliott, another of Kent's citizens. The
body was at once conveyed to the honse of
deceased, and the coroner notified of the
fact. The doty of holding an inquest on
the remains devolved on Justice Donohue as
there is no acting coroner in tbe county,
Dr. I. M. Smith, of Moro, and Dr. Rollins,
of Grass Valley, were summoned to make
an examination of the body and hastened to
the scene of the occurrence on Friday after
noon. An examination of the body devel
oped the fact that the skull was badly frac
tured, the wound being sufficient to cause
death. Bat bow the wound was inflicted
con d not be definitely ascertained. Various
theories are afloat,soms being of the opinion
that the deceased fell fiom bis horse while
riding home bareback from a neighbor's
house a couple of nights previous, and that
in falling he struck some bard substance
causing the fracture on the skull, while
others seem to think that the wound was
inflicted by some kind of a weapon or heavy
bar. We have not seen a copy of the ver
dict found at the inquest, but leaxnJbat it
is substantially to the effect that death re
sulted from a wound on the skull inflicted
by some means unknown.
The deceased was in good circumstances.
He had no relatives in the county, his
brother being a resident of California. The
latter has been notified of his brother's un

In tbe Goldcndale Sentinel of last Thurs
day is published the summons of J. Barger,
plaintiff, vs. The Interstate Investment Co.,
0. D. Taylor and about one hundred other
defendants, including the Columbia River
Glass Works.in which the first named party
prays for a judgmeut against the above-
named defendants for the sum of $3500 and
interest thereon at the rate of one per cent,
per month from and after 1st day of Novem
ber, 1892, costs and disbursements and at
torneys fees in the sum of $175. Tbe plain
tiff states in this summons that without tbis
mount is paid before the 25th day of April,
1893, the prayer of said complaint will be
allowed and the lands (described by metes
and bounds) of the said c mpaoy be sold to
satisfy the same. In ettect, this action is to
recover $3500 on i mortgage on North
Dalles alias Grand Dalles, which was exe
cuted to satisfy the payment of said amount.
Sometimes bubbles burst because of tbeir

too severely those who perpetrated the

A Successful Trip.
The Regulator bad a difficult time in get
ting to the Cascades yesterday. At Crate's
point she struck an ice pack, broke through
it and proceeded-on her jouroey. A little
farther down she became faat on an ice floe
and was forced to throw a line ashore to get
loose. Notwithstanding these obstacles the
boat pulled up at her Wharf at thb Locks in
good time, discharged ber' freight and
started on the return trip about 2 o'clock in
the afternoon. She arrived at Crate's point
aboot 5 o'clock and found that the pack bad
again become solid, and experienced great
difficulty in cutting through. Going down
the current was in ber favor, bnt in return
ing she had to battle against the force of
the water and break the ice at the same
time. Soon after 11 o'clock at night she
made her wharf not the least damaged by
reason of the difficulties encountered. Tbe
Dalles City was also successful in reaching
tbe foot of the locks, and was forced to cnt
her way through several obstructions. In
the neighborhood of Vancouver there were
two or three floes through which she waa
forced to. make a passage.
The rase of A. C Collins vs. H. Herbring
was on trial in the circuit court to-day, and
the jury empanelled were E W Trout, Geo
Joles, A Bettingen, jr., Geo W Miller, S B
Adams, James Harper, W C Hansell, John
Wood. Argument was had this morning
on a motion to non-suit, made by defend
ant's counsel, which was taken nnder ad
visement until afternoon, wben the judge
overruled the motion. The facts appears to
be that tbe plaintiff left this city owing Mr.
Herbring, and be attached property for the
debt. After tbe sale of the attached prop
erty the defendant attempts to set aside the
sale and snes Mr. Herbring for damages,
claiming that the proceedings were not
technically legal. The razor-edge techni
calities of law, we presume, will always re
