Exckssivk Competition. There is
beautiful muddlo among steamboat men
on the Yamhilll, occasioned by U. B.
Scott A Co. contracting with Gaston for

exclusion of tlio other lines. As this is a
new element in tho raging Yamhill tlm
runners ana v . 1. tv. jj. uo. lines wnicn
have hitherto divided tho patronage, find
tUclr interests imperiled and it results in
a pretty lively fermentation. Some one is
bound to bo squeezed ; it is a good route
for one taat, but four boats making two

nither more than the business requires.

Knixon EsTEiiPiusE : Thinkinc a few
lines from this popular Summer resort
will be acceptable, I drop you the same,
although necessarily short, owing to the
hack leaving soon, "and so much time be
ing taken up by the musical laughter of a
bevy of young , ladies, who "are making
the time fly by playing that noble (?)
game of croquet; nevertheless, if the
various amusements outside do put all of
the original ideas out of oue's head, this
will do something toward tilling up the
columns of that excellent sheet, tho Ore
gon City Enterprise. Since the last visit
of the "writer to this place, it has been
greatly improved, noticeably in the addi
tion of halt a dozen cabins for the use of
campers, which is a great convenience for

their pandemoniac yells, etc., in endeav
oring to get the tirst show at tho seats;
an excellent croquet plat, which is also
continuously occupied by the belles of
the valley towns, and their dominate
beaux ; a large and commodious dancing
hall, where the evenings are put, in by tho
aforesaid belles and beaux, and tho older
people, even uo to grand parents, on ex
tra occasions, the music leing furnished

accommodate as many horses as are likely
to be around this way; tho store is well
stocked with everything in tho grocery
and provision lino that campers can wish
for, and at Portland prices too. The hotel
has been enlarged, and will accommodate
very comfortably about fifty guests. Tho
culinary department is presided over by
that excellent caterer, Charlio Howard,
and the faro consists of everything that
can be found on the Portland tables, with
the addition of an abundance of all kinds
of game that are found in the immediate
vicinity of the springs. The proprietors,
Mann fc Noble, keep the house as lieiUns a

basket picnic to bo given on tho (ith prox

Preparations on an extensive scale aro
being jade to have the occasion the affair
of the season. Tho Salem brass band has
lcen engaged to discourse mnsic through

bo given in tho evening. At 11 o'clock,
p. m., tho festive band will bo at the serv
ice of all those who wish to have their

Homiclclo at Celilo.
On Saturday evening last Captain Eph.
Haughman, of tho steamer Spokane, for
merly on tho Willamctto river, kill
ed ah emplovo on the Uoat named
Pat. Wheaton. The circumstances aro
given as follows: After the boat had
arrived at Celilo, Wheaton went to tho
cabin-bov and wanted some soap. Tho
boy tolddiim to go to the steward if ho
wanted anv soap. This enraged W hcaton
and lie assaulted the boy, beating him se
verely. Captain Haughman heard tho
noise nud went. lelow to see what the
imnMnwas nud learning tho cause, or
dered Wheaton to leave tho boat, lhis
Wheaton refused to do, making at the
same time a threat .against tho Captain.
Haughman went away, procuring a gun,
returned. Wheaton, when he saw Haugh
man coming with tho gun, seized a cap
stan bar and started for him. Having no
alternative but to retreat or shoot. Haugh
man discharged the weapon with fatal et
fect, the charge killing Wheaton almost
instantly. Haughman gave himself up to
tho authorities, and the body of Wheaton
was taken to tho Dalles, where an inquest
was held, and a verdict returned that ho
came to his death from a jnshot in tho
hands of Haughman. and that ho (Haugh
maii) was guilty of manslaughter. There
is much feeling over tho aflair in tho
Dalles, and friends of Wheaton claim that
the act was not justifiable, while others
think it was.
Other versions of the affair are given,

The intornal revenue returns give
somo insight into the habits of a nation,
and from last j ear's figures it would
appear that wo are gradually becoming
more and moro of a beer-drinking peo
ple. Last year, notwithstanding tho
hard times and a marked; decrease in
the consumption of spirituous liquors
and tobacco, wo drank up ten million
and a quarter 'barrels of beer, an in
crease of nearly sixty thous and over
tho preceding year and moro than three
million of barrel s'overr,'.ha quantity
produced in 1S71. We have not. it is
true, approached tha Teutonic "rato of
consumption, nor is it desirable that wo
should do so, but the evident tendency
to chango ofTfrom spirits," which mad
den the brain, to the mildly stimulating
lager, which contains less than five pe r
cent of alcohol, is a move in the right
direction. An ingenious writer lately
produced an elaborate' disquisition to
show that victory alwifys accompanied
beer. English strength was attributed
to the consumption of malt liquor, and
German ascendancy to tho same cauee.
From the figures now presented it
might with equal plausibility be argued
that Empire in its western march went
