A hundred and sixty acres of land
on Bunker Hill -was sold at public
auction in St. Helens on Tuesday last

George F. Scott, of South Bend,
Pacific county, was killed on the Wil
lapa on the morning of Thursday, the
7th iust. He was barking n log be
fore shooting it into the river, when

and the log rolled down on him and
crushed him to death. He was bur
ied at Riverside the following day.

The upper Columbia is rapidly re
eediug. It lacked several inches of
reaching the high water mark of 1870.
It was higher this season than it has
been for ten years. It has furnished
a good flow of drift timber along its
banks, and the people living along the
upper river have improved the oppor
tunity to lay in supplies of timber for
rails, posts, etc. It was a welcome
treat to them, but disastrous to those
who had farms along the Columbiu
and Willamette bottoms.
J. E. Sheppard, San Francisco man
ager of tho Oregon immigration
bureau, says ho has never known im
migration to Washington territory
and Oregon to be as heavy as at tho
present time. The Pacific Coast
boom that began in California is ex
tending north to the international
line. The class of people who have
come north to take up land are better
than tho average of past seasons.
Almost all have money; not fortunes,
but sufficient to keep them independ
ent of tho farm for two years or
more. Thereare few pauper foreign
ers among them to make themselves
a burden.
Regarding the recent drowning of
four men at Tillamook, a note re
ceived last Thursday by the Orego
nian gives the name3 of the Penn
sylvanians as Hoover, LeBaron and
Johnson, and the Nestucca man as
John Holbrook. On Tuesday, the
5th inst., these men applied at
the board of immigartion rooms
for information in regard to timber
land. They gave their names as
W. W. Hepburn, L. LeBaron and
Z. L. Hoover. They said they were
from Pennsylvania and represented a
syndicate of capitalists, who would
furnish moner to put up a large saw
mill if sufficient good timber land
could be secured. They were accom
panied by a man named Cal Johnson,
a resident of Portland, who appeared
to be well acquainted with them.
They were advised to visit Tillamook
county, annjon Thursday left for Or
egon city to examine plats of land in
the land office there. On Friday they
went to North Yamhill where they
took tho stage for Tillamook, and
would, in the natural order of things,
arrive at Tillamook city, at the Lead
of the bay, on Saturday, at which
time the men drowned are reported
to have arrived there. On tho hotel
register at North Yamhill appear the
names of Z. L. Hoover, Lumber City,
Pa., L. DeBaron and Cal Johnson.
They are, without doubt, the parties
who called at the rooms of the board
of immigration, but W. W. Hepburn,
if he belonged to tho party, appears
to have left it LeBaron was proba
bly from the same plase as Hoover.

An Early Jlornlns Chase and Capture.
When Dick Leathers opened his
trunk to get some clothes at his room
in the hotel last Thursday night he
found that some one with vague ideas
on the acquisition of property had
been there ahead of him and purloined
a suit of clothes, a scarf pin, etc., to
the value of $97.50. Suspicion fell
on Wm. Burke or Wm. Dolan. who
had occupied the next room a night
or two before but who that night was
sleeping in another part of tho house.
Officer Linville awakened him and
asked him where was that
valise that he'd had. Burke
said it was gone. Linville and
Leathers then went to tho docks
and looked through both Portland
boats but could find no trace of it
About three o'clock yesterday morn?
ing Burke owned up to it being on the
boat at the O. B. & N. dock, but said
it belonged to his chum, who had
gone to Portland the day before. On
opening it Leathers' clothes were
found in it, whereat Burke ex
pressed great surprise, which was
increased when Linville went
through his pockets and found a re
ceipt for the valise, Leather's scarf
pin in his pocket book, and a choice
selection of false keys, a wrenoh, a
pocket Iviso and other bijouterie in
his pockets. Linville walked Burke
toward the jail, Burke said he
wouldn't go, he'd die firet, and
after considerable interchange of
opinion about being looked up
he broke away and, ran, Linvillo in
pursuit, that officer finally firing a
shot across Burke's bow, causing him
to heave to in front of Bain's mill.
He was taken to jail and at seven
o'clock yesterday evening he appeared
before justice Cleveland, who, after
listening to testimony and accom
panying remarks, remanded Mr.
Burke to the dungeon to await the
action of the grand jury. It was one
o'clock yesterday morning when of
ficer Linville heard of the matter and
at four o'clock he had his man in jail.
