for the mastery, the fog having its own

Captain C. B. Spear, a well known resi

at Knappa last Sunday, in the f7th year
of his age. The funeral took place at
Knappa yesterday afternoon.
L. A. Loomis was in the city yesterday.

will make their home in Portland.
Captain Tuttle has sent down a mail
box to Ike Foster, to replace the one
burnt in the disastrous fire of last July.
It now occupies a prominent place on
Foster's corner and will be of consider
able accommodation to residents in that
part of the city. Any letters dropped in
the box up to a quarter of six in the
morning will go on that day's boat.
A meeting of the voters of bchool dis
trict No. 1 was to be held at the school
house yesterday afternoon to take into
consideration the matter of providing
for the payment of the debt of 7,000
still due on the building, but as no one
seemed to be aware of the fact that the
meeting bad been called, it was post
poned to 7 o clock this evening at the
same place. A full attendance of the
voters of the district is desired.
A large lot of cranberry vines was re
ceived here some time ago from New
Jersey and forwarded to Uhabot a Co.,
to be S6t out on their cranberrv marsh
situated near Ilwaco. Considerable
money has been spent on this undertak
ing. As an experiment twenty acres of
land were selected about a year ago, and
prepared for the vines at a cost of nearly
$300 per acre. Should the cuttings
thrive, as is the probability, the Chabots
will make an independent fortnne.
The Kescuo Dramatic Combination
have now about $475 in the treasury.
The efforts of this talented amateur
organization deserve the generous patron
age accorded them, not alone for the in
trinsic merit of their splendid perform
ances but also for the use to which they
apply the funds. They have contracted
for a hose cart to cost 025, which is ex
pected to arrive in this city about May
1st. It will certainly bo no more than
their due to fill Occidental hall on the
occasion of their next performance, to
aid in making up tho necessary amount.
Fatal Accident. On last Saturday
afternoon, while W. J. Lyons, foreman
in the Cosmopolis saw mill, on the Che-
halis river, was out hunting, and was in
the act of jumping across a slough, his
gun was accidentally oiscnarged, the con
tents taking effect in the mouth and
penetrating the brain and producing in
stant death. He not coming home bat
nrday night, a party from the mill set out
on Sunday in search of him, and found
his .body m the slough he attempted to
cross. The unfortunate man leaves a
wife and two children to mourn his loss.

I Cur and Ills All.
The former correspondent of the Port
land Mercury, who is now turning tho
crank of a- smut-mill to pay lluwan
Bob's mortgage, ran out of slush last
week and sent to headquarters for a sup
ply. Last Sunday's isiue of that delectable-
sheet contains an article concerning
tlm editor of this paper which is a false
hood and fabrication from beginning to
end. Sometime ago a party claiming to
be the editor of that paper entered our
office. Ho was treated like a gentleman.
He asked for information which was
freely given. Ho asked, furthermore, for
something which was not freely given.
Probably his defective memory is con
venient on this point. This explains his
animus toward a man who never invited
an interviow with the individual who
bundles n lot of lies together in an at
tempt to besmirch our character. The
twin cats in the Dciaidcnl and Mercury
offices can throw effluvia in common with
their prototypes, but the only thing they
demonstrate is how low an alleged human
being can descend on tho downward
grade to avernus.

An Apt Illustration.
Hon. Tbos. Kodgkins, well known in
this section of our state, was telling us
yesterday of his recent eastern trip with
532 other pioneers, and of the many singu
lar questions asked him concerning this
country, by people who should be pre
sumably better acquainted with geo
graphy. "Soyour'e from near Astoria."
said one prominent business man in Bal
timore, with whom indirectly, Mr. Hodg
kius has been transacting business for
many years; ''isn't that somewhere in
Dakota?' "No," said Mr. H. "it is con
siderably west of Dakota; it is in the ex
treme northwestern corner of Oregon,
at the mouth of the Columbia." '"Oh,
yes," said the Baltimorean, "on the Co
lumbia; I know now. The Columbia is a
tributary of the Sacramento. That's
where they catch the salmon, isn't it.'
Folkt Spbixgs Sold. Mr. Peter liuney
one day this week sold the Foley Springs
on the McKenzio river, to Captain A. C.
West, of Westport, Clatsop county, for
the sum of S5,000. The Springs are one
of the most valuablo pieces of property
of their kind in the northwest. Captain
West is a men of means, and will make
further improvements. Mr. Runey has
had the springs about three years and
has brougnt them prominently before the
public. We regret to hear of his selling
out as he is a nrst-class gentleman in
every particular. Eugene City Guard, 23.
Is Disteess. Last evening Capt. Fla-
vel received a dispatch from Port Town
send from the master of the Wellington
just arrived from San Francisco saying
that on Saturday he spoke the American
ship Sumner II. Mead, about fifty miles
off the mouth of the Columbia and in a
badly damaged condition, and that the
captain of the Mead had asked him to
telegraph to Astoria for assistance. The
dispatch stated that her bowsprit and
foretopmast were gone. The Mead is
now out 173 days from New York. On
Nov. 21, 1883. she was spoken in Lat. 48
deg. S, Lon. 62 deg. W., with decks
swept, boats gone, and bulwarks dam
aged. The hapless vessel has had a ter
rible experience. One of the tugs will if
possible go to her assistance to-day.
Thk Chinook. The WaitSburg Times
says: A subscriber in Texas writes for
an explanation of the term "Chinook
wiud." We will not attempt to give tho
scientific causes which produce these
winds, but will simply say that they are
a warm soutnwest wina, wnicu suuucmy
changes the temperature and causes snow
and ice to rapidly disappear. "Chinook"
is an Indian term. During the time the
whole Pacific coast was inhabited was
inhabited almost or quite exclusively by
the red man of the forest, thero was a
tribe living several hundred miles south
west of here, known as the Chinook
Indians, and whenever these warm winds
would begin to blow, the different tribes
of Oregon, Washington and Idaho re
garded it as a friendly wind sent hither
by their friends, tho Chinook Indians.
Hence they called these winds "Chi
nook," a term by 'which they are still

The bill pruviumg for the admission
of the southern jvrt of Dakota asa state,
wi.icb the senate committee on territo
ries have agreed to report favorably, is
similar in many respects to the bill re
ported by that committee at the last
session of congress. It is, in most of its
features, like the ordinary "enabling
acts," and presides for the organization
of a state to be known as Dakota, from
that part of the territory of that name
south of the forth-sixth parallel. A con

furnishes the following additional partic
ulars: Major Morris was taken seriously
ill about the 10th of January, and grad
ually sank from that time to his death.
He was delirious all the time, nnd never
rallied from the first. His death was
caused by Bright's disease. The funeral
took place on the 2d of February, with
fall naval and military honors, the cor
tege being escorted by companies of ma
rine.1' and seamen from the government
steamer Adams. The duties of the office
of collector will be performed by E. H.
Brown, the present deputy, until the new
appointee arrives from Washington.
Considerable speculation goes on con
cerning presidential possibilities. Blaine
is said to be a candidate on the Republi
can side. Democrats are thought to
"hanker arter" the old ticket Tilden
and Hendricks. Conkling growls thusly:
"The Republican party has gotten rid of
its bosses. Eyery man who stood a head
taller than his followers has been killed
off, It is an army that has shot its own
leaders, in the fact of the enemy. Now I
hops the cranks are satisfied, and what is
the result? You have lost the lower
house of congress, and that is only the
beginning of your losses. Of course I
have no present interest in the contest,
because I am out of the whole things I
am a Republican, and expect to remnn
one, but I have no sympathy for thi3
method of fighting in a headless army."
A Winnipeg special says the Manitoba
situation grows daily moro interesting.
The people ns a whole have become thor
oughly aroused to the necessity of taking
a firm and united stand against the
tyrauny of the Ottawa government. All
civil and constitutional measures have
failed to secure a particle of justice from
them. They are now determined to en
force recognition of their rights by decis
ive action. Premier Norquay telegraphs
that he has utterly failed to influence the
government towards redressing even the
most flagrant wrongs under which we
suffer. Thongh hitherto a strong sup
porter of the government he will stick to
his native province and fearlessly fight
to free her Irom the bond of the oppres
sor. He will arrive home in a few days,
when important steps will at once be
taken. It u probable he will call the
local legislature together and he and his
ministers hand their resignations to the
lieutenant governor. Manitoban repub
licans in the federal parliament will be
recalled, and dominion authority ig
nored. The next step will be to form an
independent provisional government,
which shall take possession of the affairs
of the country and defy the federal au
thorities to interfere.
