A Dastardly Dekd. Our EWn corres
pondent's letter, concerning the celebration,
came to hand too lnte for publication last
week, and most of the Items are tr.o ancient
for newa now, The fqllowintr, however, we
take from it: "Mr, C, N. White, who lives
about a quarter of a mile from town, hid a
peculiar experience a few days ago, and if
3t had not been for two mice which were
found dead in a sack of Hour, his whole
family would have been poisoned. Mr,
"White went to pot some Hour to makp bread,
tinu perceiving tliat tho mice had been in
the (lour, concluded not to use that sack,
but let it undersoil thorouuh examination.
Borne of the Hour was thrown to the pigs,
two or which died, ami two pioro hail nts,
ihowim the symptoms of poisoninj- by
gtrichninc. A kitten that ate one Qf the
.mice also died. There can be no doubt that
the Hour was noisoncd bv some one. Mr
White has kept some of the flour fo? the
purpose of ircttinu it tested, and if the per
petrator of tlm dastardly deed is ever found

SuonT ik If is Accounts. A dispatch, da
ted I'eudleton, July 12th. says : The trans
fer of the books of N. Hendricks, a three
termer republican treasurer of Umatilla
county, to his successor to-day revealed the
fact that he was ?G000 short on tho state
school fund and some $12,000 short on the
couuty sencral fund. J18.000 m all. o ef
forts were made to conceal the shortage.
Hendricks no doubt intended, and it is said
was promised the money, to replace the dc-
llciencv. His bondsmen' nine in number,
are held in the sum of $30,000. They will
pay the shortage, as to-day thev started
nuit against Hendricks for $19,000. Attach
juonts were levied on the firm of Ilousenfc
Hendnaks by Murphy, Grant & Co., San
l'rancisco, and a number of Portlond hous
es, for over $13,000. The flrni is thought to
bo solvent, but will be crippled by attach
ments. Hendricks cannot account for the
j tenancies cannot account for the
, but it is thought he used the most

I). W. Shehan arrived in this citv on Fri-
day evening of lant week, having come from
Cornucopia, over the new road, to this city
inonedav. He brought a petition to tho
county court, numerously signed by citi
zens of Cornucopia, asKing that he bo ap
pointed justice oi mo rcacc ot mat pre-
cinci, wtiicu was cuiiiput'ii wiui, uuu ne
went home rejoicing. We uuderstand that
a competitor was en route to this city via
tho old road, for the purpose of asking tho
same favor of tho county court, but arrived
lone after his opponent bad been, and seen,
and conquered. The moral is obvious,

rrom what we caj learp thero ib
considerable feeling pxistjiig among
the residents Qf Corrtcopta over the
fact that the road, is being built by way
of Fine Vallc", instead of straight
acrp.es tho hills tp Cornucopia, accor
ding to Griflitl' iccpud survey, which
is two miles nearer. Mr. McDaniols
informs us that lie, and the other com
missioners, until recently, thought that
tho latter was th.c route adopted by the
county court, as they had bosn ex
prcssly informed so by Judgo Craig,
and tliat thev cavo the contract to
Sluny it McL.cod understanding it that
war. The contract specifics that a
certain kind of road shall bq built,
commencing at (ioose creek, on the
Gridiths survey, and from thence to
Cornucopia a distaucq of 24 miles.
Not until tho road was half built, and
tho point of turning oil' nearly reached,
was it discovered, by Mf. MoDaniel,
in an accidental manner, tliat the
county court had adopted the other
survey the one running by Dan
ilooro ranolio, Hiving as their reason
for doing so, (wlnle tb-'y tliought the
other was the best route) that tins wa
the one specified in the petition, and
that they had no right to dosignate
any other, unless they were asked to
do so bv another petition, which had
not been done. The County Commis
sioners wore no doubt correct in their
action concerning the matter, but why
they and the State Koad Commission
ers did not have i full and complete
undejstauding as to which survey tbe
road should he built on, before the
contract was let, is beyond our com
prehension. Such was not the case
howevor, and when the contractors
were informed that the road must be
built on the lower survey, thoy very
naturally demurred, as it would no
cessitate tpe tmiiuing qj two more
miles of road- Thoy announced their
intention of building the number of
miles of road the contract calls for,
and no more, but said if the oitizene
of Cornueonja would have the road
supervisor of that district put in the
road work on tlioso two miles, thev
would assist in putting the
through in good shape without further
controversy. At a meeting of the
citizens of Cornucopia, hed that oven
ing, they resolved to do nothing of
tho kind, and seemed to be under the
impression that tho County Court, the
Road Commissioners and the contract
ors were all a sot of tljievos, working
together, for their mutual benefit
We believe that our Cornucupia
friends are laboring under an crronne-
our idea, when they think so. The
County Court may have been slow in
its action 'too 8IW i" fact, but that
it desired the completion of the road
cannot be questioned m view of its
appropriation of !?10Q0 towards the
building of this end of tho road. We
believe the contractors desire to, and
will, build as good a road as tho con
tract calls for. And while two of the
Commissioners appointed by the State,
may deserve all that has been said of
them, wo believe tjiat Mr. McDaniol,
the chairman of tho board, has acted
as well as he knew how, and has had
v sincere desire to build tlie road as
well and economically as possible.
We are of the opinion that our Cornu
copia friends haye been a litlo hasty
in their actions and expressions, and
that they will see it before many days.
W c understand that tho contractors.
rather than have any trouble, will
build the extra two miles of road, al
though they think it is ntoro than
tneir contract cans ior. l here js no
doubt that a blind, unreasoning hos
tility toward the road has been enter
tained by some whoso duty it was to
sco it built. TJus has not only been
tho feeling of certain individuals, but
it has been entortained by neighbor
ing towns, IJaker City and La
Grande have boen hostile to the move
ever since it was inaugurated. The
former became it knew that nearly
all tho trade of Pine creek would be
deflected from it into Union county
as soon as the road was oompleted,
and the latter becaiife it imagined the
town of Union would bo benefitted
moro than Ijh uranuo, and it was,
therefore, willing to sink the whole
county, or do anything in tho world
to defeat the road. The machinations
of these localities, and tlio scheming
of rascals, have not succeeded, how
over, in killing the road (although, for
a time it looked as though they would
succeed) and we may say that the
work is about completed. A state
lino lias been established over the
route, and is now making regular
trips. The beneficial effects of tho
road are beginning, and will continue
to bo felt by tho people of Union coun
ty, notwithstanding the chagrin of
those who hoped it would never bo

DieiWOn the lOtn. ult.. a little 5
year old son of Mr. Drake, Tho doath
was tho result of an accident. It ap
pears a toam was hitched to a wagon,
preparatory to starting for town, and
while tho parents were still at dinner,
tho little fellow went oqt to the wagon.
When found ho was pi) tho ground
near the horses heels, crying, and hol
ding his hands to his stomach. No
bruises were found on tho child, and
nothing could bo ascertained of tho
accident, but it is supposed ho fell
from tlio wagon, or was kicked by ono
of tho horses. Dr. O'Connor was called
but mortification had already sot in
and the child died in a few hours.
Tho -1111. was observed on tho 3rd,
by a pic-nic, or would-bo-cclebration, at

joyed by thoso who mingled with old
friends and noighbors. As iv celebra
tion, tho aflairwaa tljo nearest a grand
farce, it has ever been my lot to chron
icle, which I shall do from tho light in
which 1 viewed it. "Hew to the line,

They have beautiful groves in tho val
ley for a celebration, and had the peo
ple taken an intorest in tho aflair it
seems to us it might Jiavo been mado
a pleasant occasion. As it was, no one
seemed to know anything about tho
programmo. No committee on gont
end arrangements, no marshal of the
day, no committco on tables, no com?
mitteo on music, (pr at least jf there
wero any committees appointed, they
did not seem to know it.) No Liberty
car, no procession, no Declaration of.

which served to cover men, women and

journed to tho hall and danced until
the dawn of Sunday morning. Whilo
of course wo do not expect any grand
colebration in an out-of-the-way placo
liko this, wo would expect some sys
tem, management and order. Wlion
instead of pulling together, each indi
vidual pulls in a soperato direction, it
is difficult to do anything woll. Queer,
that considering tho number of intol
ligent, well-mannered, good people of

well, so mixed. Yours for Truth,
