OnnisTMAS Eve at tiie CironcoES.
The hearts of numerous little ones were
uladdened last evening at tne various
churches, which were handsomely deco
rated and brilliantly illuminated. Our
reporter visited every church in the city,
and in each found the same sceno being
enacted. The sacred edifices were most
elaborately draped and festooned with
evergreens, appropriate mottoes being
conspicuous, and glittering Christmas
trees laden with presents. At the Con
jgregational church tho usual style was
vanea oy uio appearance or a mice snip
full-ri creed and with swelling sails, which
rounded jgracefully into port and began
discharging cargo. It consisted of in
numerable toys, drums, jewelry, books,
lea sets, embroideries, fancy articles, in
great profusion. At the Baptist church
Santa Class with his elk team arrived
promptly on lime and with a sleish load
af beautiful presents for all. A notice
able feature of the Christmas trees in
erery church in tho city last evening was
that every member of every Sunday
school was Handsomely remembered. No
one went empty handed away, and the
glistening eyes of the little folks showed
how well they appreciated the armfuls of
good things that were so abundantly dis-rribated.
nANfiKl) niJlSELK LAST OCTOBER.
The .Miserable Death of Auton Kleps.
About the 15th of last Soptember a
cabinet maker named Anton Kleps, aged
35 years, came from Portland, and pro
cared work at Chas. Hoilborn's furniture
establishment. After a short time he
quit and afterward went to work for Ed.
Curtis. From his actions and language
it was supposed that he was tired of life,
and when he disappeared, about the 1st
of Octobor, it whs generallj thought ho
had mado away with himself.
Yesterday morning as Peter Patterson
was looking for some Christmas trees,
just bej'ond the cut on the southern ex
tension of Main street and on the other
side of the ridge, ho found the body of a
mail who had evidently been hanging
where found for a considerable time.
From a small limb of a tree, about six
feet from the ground, the body swung
suspended by a small looj) of baling rope,
which was caught up by a knot under the
left ear of the defunct." Tho bones of the
neck had broken, and the body had
drawn down, the feet resting on the
ground, thus presenting a most horrible
appearance. The features were unrecog
nizable, the '.-lothes were partially gone
and the dried flesh hung in strips from
various portions of the body. Patterson
immediately notified Coroner Franklin,
who held an inquest on the body where
found. What served to identify the de
ceased most strongly was a peculiarly
constructed key which was found in his
pocket, and which unlocked a chest of
tools that he had left at Ed. Curiiss last
September; the lock and key both being
of unique construction. No doubt re
mains that it was the body of the nn
fortunato Kleps. who. in a fit of despond
ency deliberately sought out that lonely
spot soniet'me during the first week of
last October, and there hanged himself.

A Stnliblni? Affray.
At a few minutes before 1 o'clock this
morning the citizens in the neighborhood
of Main and Chouamus streets v
startled by the sharp and clear reports of
four shots fired in rapid succession. An
Astobian reporter immediately started to
the scene of war to ascertain the cause of
such an unusual occurrence in this gen
erally quiet neighborhood. Upon reach
ing the spot his sharp eyes detected the
athletic form of Officer Beasley with a
yet smoking revolver iu his hand giving
chase down bquemoqua in the direction
of Benton street in hot pursuit of a pris
oner who had broke from his grasp, and
at whom he had fired the above-noted
shots. The prisoner fell while attempt
ing to turn the corner of the last-named
street and was gathered in by thoomcer.
The cause leading to the arrest as near as
can be ascertained is as follows: A
partv bed been carousing during the
evening among the raanj- saloons on
Concomlv street and toward ill o clock
had strolled into the saloon in the Vin
cent building. The part-becoming noisy
and it approaching the hour to close, the
barkeeper ordered them out. xney then
hung around tho door and espying an
alley which separates the lower story or
tho building, bolted in and rushing
against a door at tho farther end broke
it in. This action aroused the sleeping
inmates, consisundof two men, in a room
into which tho door opened. Ono of the
men jumped from his bed and inquired
what was wanted, whereupon one ot the
marauders orew a Kmie anu piungeu it
to the handle m his questioner s hip. and
this he twice repeated, tho last stab be
ing given in the chest at the lower end
of the sternum. By this time tho party
had become so noisv as to attract the
attention of Officers Beasley and Stefcbb,
who arrived upon the scene just in time
to arrest whom they supposed to be three
of tho principals and safely lodged in jail.
The man who received the stabs Ls named
John Brmkman. and in addition to those
given him last night has an ugly-looking
ono across his throat, given him on Sat
urday night. The wounds are ugly and
painful, but not considered dangerous.
Heavt Weatheh. When day broke
yesterday morning, from over the hill
came a blast from the southwest that
shook buildings, played havoc with signs
and gave pedestrians a lively tussle to
hold their feet. With tho breeze came
slanting lines of heavy rain, and not un
til 2 in the afternoon did the storm
cease. Beyond a few minor mishaps to
gates, trees, etc, no damage is reported,
the burned shell of the building that was
such an object of lively interest one hot
afternoon last July, going down in utter
ruin. At tho Cape the wind blew great
guns; the booming of the cannon at
noon-sent a report of marine disaster,
but on investigation it was found that
the unusual iinng was a saiuie m uccoru
ance with the proclamation published in
The Astobian of Sunday. Along the
water front everything that usually turns
a wheel, was moored securely, and every
one preferred the inside.
Portland aad the THIard Stock.
Tho losses by the depreciation iu Vil
lard stocks have been a great set back to
this city: fully $G,000,000 being taken
away that would otherwise hare been in
vested horo in building and other enter
prises. The number of rich moil (thank
goodness the poor couldn't afford to buy
such stocks) who have been "cinched"
by the bear movement in Wall street is
much larger than the public generally is
aware of. A prominent banker who has
facilities of knowing, says that there
were very few men in Portland who had
ready cash but went into Transcontinen
tal and suffered for it, and that nearly
every day ho hears of some new unfortu
nate, who prefaces his demand for a loan ,

estini in "Villards. ' so heavily, m fact.
hat he was visited with nervous prostra
tion, and has gone east for tho benefit of
his health, which we hope he may re
cover and likewise his lost money. Mr.
Prascott is a gentleman who has many
warm friends in Portland. and not one
of them but what will regret to hear of
his reverses. Mr. Oakes, tho bosom
friend of Mr. Prescott. is also known to
have speculated disastrously in Trans
continental. It is currently reported on
the street hero that lllard cleaned up
about $10,000,000, and that his frieuos
were the principal 'contributors no one
being in tho secret except uari sscuurz,
the editor of hispapar, who has just re
tired from journalism with $1,000,000,
made on the deal. Tho resignation ot
Villard from all the corporations except
the Northern Pacific, is said to have betn
brought about bv influential men who
made it plain to him that there was lack
of confidence in his management a fact
that was made palpable in a most uncom
plimentary way bj' the stocks making a
jump skyward the moment the street
learned of his abdication. That Villard
is not ruling as the great "I am,-' even in
tho .Northern Pacific, as well as these
other corporations, there is a well-founded
belief; and as a small straw we point
to tho fact that Utis bprague. who was
of that element who lost jiower on ac
count of friendship for Billings and
Wright, will be promoted to the superin
tendencyof tho Pacific branch of the
Northern Pacific railroad, under Mana-
f;er J. M. Buckley. Personally, Mr. Vil
ard is a financier of mushroom growth.
He has never handled railroads or mill
ions before, and it is natural that such
old experts, in such matters, as Billings,
should look with distrust npon his man
agement. Men who have thousands of
dollars invested want an experienced
man to manaco their money. What ex
perience has Henry Villard ever had in
such things? But yesterday he was a
man who couldn't pay his board bill,
and to-day he poses as a great railroad
manager and manipulator of millions!

pect of the control of tho Northern Pa
cific being in the hands of such men as
Billings and Wright. Tacoma makes no
mistake in holding its town lots at stiu
figures. It is a singular thing that Mr.
Villard should cling to tho northern Pa
cific Railroad in preference to tho Trans
continental, which he has represented as
owning a controlling amount of stock in
the 0. 1L & N. Co., the 2i. 1., and other
v illard corporations; and on a telegram
to benator Dolph, of this purport.
Portland capitalists were induced
to buy tho stock. If the Transcon
tinental company rules all the
others, why did Villard resign?
Simply because the lTp.nscontiuental
does nothing ot the kinu, ana its stock,
like that of Erie, when tho English stock

About the Size of It.
It is fervently to be hoped that tho
board of trado will do something to
check the exportation of "steel-head'
salmon eastward in refrigerator cars at
this season, when no Oregonian thinks
of eating such fish and even the Indians
do not hanker after them to any alarm
ing extent. The Chinook salmon, the
finest of all his tribe, is taken from April
to August and then is out of season by
law; and it would bo a pity to jeopardize
the sale of this standard fish in future
by allowing these worthless "steel-heads'
and "dog salmon" to bo exported as rep
resentative specimens of our fish pro-
convenience and 1 hope to see them be
come a profitable investment for the
wheel within a wheel' which has put
them on the road. But I would rather
s&o tho refrigerator cars taken .off tho
road altogether than to see the poorest
fish we have sold in New York as the
representative product of the Oregon
rivers. If the board of trade do not take
notice of this procedure at their next
meeting. 1 hope it will be dono by pri
vate citizens and individual merchants,
writing to thejr friends and correspon
dents m the Atlantic cities. This thing
is now an experiment and its future suc
cess depenus wnouy upon getting a gooa
send on. J. he Chinook salmon is worthy
of exportation and will do us credit. But
if theso "steel-heads' are sent, - tho dealers
in bt. Louis and Chicago will say "wo
aro inferior to tho California salmon we
have been getting by the Central Pacific
for the past twelve years.
Some people will say that the board of
trade have no right to interfere in this
matter that it is none of their business.
My answer is that the Portland board of
irauo nas tne ngnt to lmenere in mis or
anv other matter in which tho products
of tho country tributary to Portland aro
now or may hereafter bo concerned. Sup
pose, when the wheat trathc was lirst
opsned with the United Kingdom in 18G8,
that some person had bought up and
sacked all the cheat and warehouse
sweepings he could find and shipped the
dirty rubbish to Liverpool as "Oregon
wheat," would not the board of trade have
been right in taking hold of tho matter
and exposing the fraud? Would it not
have been their bounden dutv? And
would it have been any worse fraud to
screenings as representative Oregon
wheat than it now is to ship these "steel
heads'' and "haddoes" to New York as
specimens of Oregon salmon? Had the
first four or five shipments to the
United Kingdom consisted of anything
but first-class wheat, and baker's flour.
tho Willamette river would not be filled
with foreign tonnage, nor would wheat
lands in Umatilla county bo worth $80 to
$100 per acre. Therefore, I horo tho
board of trado will take some decisive
measures in the premises, oven if it result
in the withdrawal of the refrigerators
from the Northern Pacific line. Wo
have lived forty years without them
already, and can. if necessary, live fortv
years longer. Tom Merry in Sunday Ore
