Word baa reached here of the foulest
murder that has been knowu in this sec
tion for many years. About four days
ago a freighter whose uame we could not
learn, but wbo was freiightiug for Pard
Cnminius, on the OkHtroaao, received
his pay, amounting to 35.00. aud tbat
night camped about a half mile from
Cummin's store. The next urmruing the
freighter was found dead, horribly muti
lated and hiB heart stuck up no the end
of a pole near the house. Whether it in
the work of au Indian or some white
man who thinks to make it appear the
work of an Iudiau is not known. No
trace of the wretch has yet been found.

There has been rumors of a grand

Every growing, and ambitious town is
composed of three elements, those wbo
work patriotically, vigorously and intel
ligently for its bdvaucement; those who
are in a tate of apathy or indifference
and those who always take delight in
discouraging the efforts of others by
ridicule and persistent denial that any
progress can be or has been accomplished
and boasts of every othr town except
their own. The last class are called
croakers, but they are really something
worse, for their opposition does not arise
simply from despondency, but from that
enviable spirit that will neither act itself
nor suffer others to act.
From Daily Astorian, Friday.
"What fiiDny things we see when we
haven't got a gun," warbled Ticket
Agent Bozorth, of the Uuion Pacific, a
few days ago as he, in company with
General Agent Noyes, stood in the bag
gage room and watched a dilapidated
looking Btranger overhaul the contents
of a sailor's bag.
"Yes, yes, I guess they're mine," said
the fellow, and a wild laugh went up at
the confession. The man, who has a
name tbat would wreck an alphabet to
spell, had put iu a claim against the
Union facinc railroad company for $143
for loss of baggage. He recently came
from Nei York, and when bis baggage,
for wtrob he had a check, did not arrive
within a few days, he set up a huwl and
said he was a ruined man.
Before a tracer. Bent out by the agent,
had time to get fairly started on its way,
the stranger had filed with Mr. Bozorth
what purported to be an inventory of the
contents of the b.ig with the price at
tached to each article. The list looked
well, and to look at the habiliments of
the claimant, it would seem that he
packed all bis best clothing in the bag
t.nd wore his worst suit The inventory,
contained items of Beveral suits of cloth
ing, each valued at S25; two piirs of sea
boots at $8 a pair; three pairs of shoes
at 83 a pair each; nuderwear, valued at
S4 a suit; jersey jackets which it was al
leged cost $3 and a lot of other apparel
all proportionately high.
When the bag finally arrived, the man
looked at its exterior and declared it was
not his. A little questioning, however,
convinced him that the jig was up,
and he confessed ownership to the sack,
w hich a shipwrecked sailor would hardly
lav claim to. Then he was made to iden
tify the bag by calling out the contents.
and a sorry looking lot of clothing it was
that came forth. The suits of clotbiog,
listed at $25 each, were a mass of rags,
the sea boots and shoes were mildewed,
and the other articles, including the $4
nuderwear, were iu a tit couditiou for the
rag man. The stranger wbo wanted the
company to pay bim $148 for the truck
was humiliated, rnd this is what caused
Bozorth to bum, 'Vhat funny thii gs we
see when we haven't got a gun."
From Salem Daily Statesman. 2nd in at.
The writer saw yesterday at the ex
press office in Salem seven hundred
iounds of butter iu tubs all the way
rom Kansas. The express charges must
lave been enormous. It is understood
hat frequent shipments of butter are
thus made from Kansas. The secretary
of the Salem board of trade a few days
ago received a letter from a Taooma
man inquiring if some one in Salem
would contract to ship to bim 600 doz
ens i f eggs each day. This section of
Oregon bas been raising wne it on big;
farms too long. We should produce more
butter, eggs, fruit, etc., etc. Small farms,
ranches and orchards are what the
country surrounding Salem needs. And -Salem
needs commission houses that will
make a specialty of sbipp ng to the vast
markets open to the products of such
men who will contract with the pro-
iucers. The business of supplying these
markets cannot be overdone, for the mar
's are growing faster than the supply
can grow, even under the most favorable
conditions. Let's at least raise as much
as we consume.
That man Peck, who was put in the
penitentiary Friday for a term of one
year, coming from Lane county, is serv
ing his third term in Oregon s state
prison. His case is quite an argument
in favor of the unlimited sentence idea
recently introduced in an eastern state.
by its provisions a prisoner is alwavs
sentenced to an unlimited term. He is
released on good behavior given bis
freedom on probation, as it were. He
must report every month to some officer
whose duty it is to keep a record of all
men ou probation. By this means an
honest man can redeem himself, but a
scoundrel is soon taken in charge again,
thus saving the state very many dollars
for arrest, incarceration, prosecution, etc.

will issue the first nnmberof the Arling

size as the Fossil Journal, about next
