From all accounts tho Monumental
mine in Grant county, in which several of
our bovs have invested, is likely to turn
out to be very rich. The thirteenth vein
cut in the tunnel proves to be a four foot
lodo driftingin thirty feet from the tiinn!,
and the rock is very rich, some assaying
23 per cent, of sil ver.or over Ss.iXW per ton.
and it is thought to average in excess of
$2,000 to the ton. Should this hold out a
few feet like this, it is lionnd to make the
stock very valuable. So far 16 silver bear
ing veins'have been cut, and it is thought
the main Monumental lode is yet ahead.

JIUEDER OP CAPT. GOODWIN-.
The Murderer Confesses.
In our List issue we made mention of
the discovery of the body of Capt. James
Goodwin, of Upper Molalla, in the moun
tains near his residence, on the 16th, with
his head beaten almost to jelly with rocks.
At that time we were informed that sus
picion rested on a neighbor named Sad
dler, but refrained from making it public
as parties were sifting out tho matter, and
we preferred to be positive, although tho
circumstances pointed to said Saddler as
the guilty man.
The allair was brought before tho grand
jury, which is now sitting, and a warrant
issued for the arrest of Saddler, as every
thing ointed toward him. He was ar
rested on Monday and
That he killed Goodwin. Ho says that he
and Goodwin had a difficulty some time
sinee, and that Goodwin threatened to
kill him, and that he was afraid of his life,
and to be on tho safe side killed Goodwin
lwfore ho could put the threat into execu
tion. From the account given by the people of
the neighborhood, it would seem that the
murder was committed for gain, and was
cor.n r.rxonKi affair
That has ever occurred in the State. Sad
dler had bought a yoke of cattle from
Goodwin and had not paid for them, but
has since shown a bill of sale, which is
lK-lieved, by those who have seen Good
win's signature, to be a forgery. Goodwin
went out in the mountains to "hunt up the
cattle, and Saddler's tracks show that he
lollowed him, and Goodwin, who was
afllicied with heart disease, stopped to rest.
While be was sitting on the end of
a log, tho assassin slipped up be
hind and struck him in the back of
the head with a large stone, which must
have fractured his skull and probably
caused almost instant death. After this
the murderer, to make sure of his work,
hit his victim in the head with another
stone, completely mashing in his skull.
Goodwin was found lying on his face, his
right arm stretched out before him, his
gun resting on his "eft arm, every indica
tion showing that he was taken completely
by surprise, and that the first blow killed
him or rendered him unconscious. The
murderer is now confined in the county
jail, and will have his trial at the term of
the circuit court, which is in session.
Republican Club at Tualatin.

the 20th inst., and proceeded to organize a
Republican club by electing the fol
lowing officers: President, Thomas
McClinchy; Vice President, Fred Kollei

Mr. T. Li. Turner, an tinterificd Demo

of Democratic principles again. Mr. Ford
followed him . and did not leave enough
of the aforesaid to make a greasy spot.
After a few remarks by Jos. I'.arstow, the

Txti:rkstix Cask. Last Saturday the
court ho.UMC was crowded with spectators
to listen to the examination before Justice
Sanders of Dr. Anderson, charged with
assaulting Mr. Rainoy, a loom-fixer at the
faetory, with a pistol. Tue Doctor accused
Mr. Raincy of throwing kisses at his wife
whenever she appeared at the window of
her room at the Pluenix House, directly
opM.sitc the factory. On Friday evening
the enraged husband met Raincy as he
came out of the factory, and, after some
loud talk on la-th sides, pulled Ids littk
gun and proposed to put daylight through
the man who would threw kisses at his
better half. The bystanders took charge
of the s! tinir iron without anyone being
hurt. A large number of witnesses were
examined, and it resulted in the Doctor
being bound over to apiear lie fore the
grand jury. Raincy says that he was not
guilty of bestowing his 'kisses in t he man
ner charged, but was paying his attentions
to another party not in Dr. Anderson's

lndeie.-!dcnt of last week says : Tuesday
evening the steamer Gazelle brought to
this city a "moonliirht excursion," return
ing at 12 o'clock to Portland, but leaving
the larger part of the moonlighlists in
Vancouver, who proceeded to fill up with
leer and sundry exhilarating influences.
There wero several choice spirits in that
crowd, notably two boys from Oregon
City, who might have been with us yet
had they not footed it out of town so early
in the morning; and these choice samples
of good society proceeded to smash in
windows, break down fences, gates, signs
and commit other depredations creditable
to a siwash crowd, likewise not neglecting
to keep half the town awake with their
yells until near daylights As the Portland
boys seemed to feel the humiliation of
their position.causcd by a few hair-brained
youth, whom most of them denounced, no
arrests were made; but provisions will le
made for a proper legal reception of the
next moonlight excursion that visits tho
quiet, staid old town of Vancouver.

Tho deceased published the Argus at Port

Lecture. Dr. Matthew Hale Smith de
livered an interesting and instructive lec
ture at the Baptist Church last Thursday
evening. His subject was "Wit and Hu
mor," and it was handled in an able man

it that Mr. Woodruff, living about three
miles southwest of this place, on tho farm

of less importance in the immediate

blasted as if swept by fire, and as far as
this year's product is concerned will be
barren. All the orchards in the lower
grounds are more or less injured, and
the damage to tho valley is estimated at
many thousand dollars.

medicine for the suffering sick, everywhere
An Astonishing Fact.
A largo proportion of the American people
are to-day dying from the effects of Dyspepsia
or disordered liver. The result of these dis
eases upon the mass s of Intelligent and val
uable people is most alarming, making life
actually a burden Instead of a pleasant ex
istence of enjoyment and usefulness as it
ought to bo. There is no reason for this, if
you will only throw aside prejudice and
skepticism, take the advice of Druggists and
your friends, and try one bottle of Green's
August Flower. Your speedy relief is certain.
Mlllkns of bottles of this medicine have
been given away to try its virtues, with satis
factory results in every case Yon can buy a
sample bottle for 10 cents to try. Three doses
will relieve the worst case. Positively sold
by all Druggists on the Western Continent.
If any Dealer Informs
You that he has for sale a dentifrice identical
with or containing ingredients equalling or
superior In efficacy to those of SOZODOXT,
discredit the statement and Insist upon hav
ing that alone. By doing so you will secure a
dentifrice par excellence tho best In the mar
ket, containing botanic elements of rare
preservative influence (upon the teeth, and
one which will endow them with most becom
ing whiteness. Another desirable feature of
this staple toilet article is that it imparts fra
gran ce to tho breath. Sold by druggists.
