In the state circuit court at Salem
last Wednesday, Judge Boise de

Last Thursday Mayor Moran of
Seattle summarily suspended chief of
police Mitchell pending an investiga
tion of charges of malfeasance in of
fice in collusion with gamblers. Cap
tain Willard was appointed acting
ohief of police. Shortly before hiB
suspension, chief Mitohell arrested
six gamblers, from as many saloons,
and took them to the police court,
where they paid fines of $50 each.
The mayor and council say this move
of the chief was done only for effect,
and chief Mitohell admits that he had
an understanding with the gamblers,
that each saloon wonld be willing to
furnish a man to pay a fine of $50.
One night last week while the Tele
phone was on her way up the river
some person in a fishing boat fired
three shots at the vessel. It is sup
posed that the steamer went through
the fisherman's net and so exasper
ated him that he sought vengeance
with his rifle. The officers of the
steamer say there are no lights shown
by some of the fishing boats and con
sequently it is next to impossible to
avoid striking a net once in a while.
While it is exceedingly aggravating
to a fisherman to have his net wrecked
by a passing steamer, it wonld doubt
less be showing poor judgement for
him to try to mend matters with a
At Portland, on Wednesday after
noon deputy United States marshal
Roberts arrested the steamer Joseph
Kellogg, at tho snit of the Portland,
East Portland and Albina Transpor
tation company, who brought suit in
tho United States court to recover
damages in the sum of $140 on ac
count of injuries sustained by the
steamer Alarm, from being run into
by the Kellogg. It is claimed that
the Kellogg waa in charge of O. H.
Kellogg, an unlicensed pilot, and the
whole accident is attributed to the
carelessness of the man who was at
the wheel. The owners of the Kel
logg furnished bonds in tho sum of
S300, and the boat was released from
The ship Kennebec was towed to sea
at San Francisco List Thursday and
as the tug was leaving, the ship
signaled it to return. This was done
and a boat was put off with the
second mate and four sailors from
the ship. Tho sea was running very
high. When the boat was longside,
it was found that it wa3 desired to
put on board a wounded seaman
named Gustave, who had broken his
leg by falling down the main hatch.
He was taken on board just as a
monster wave swept the small boat
about 100 yards ahead, throwing out
two of the men. Another large wave
carried the tug forward. It collided
with tho boat, which was washed
across tne tug and the mate was
thrown down on tho deck. Lines
were thrown to tho two men iu the
water and they were saved. All
hands were finally gotten into the
small boat and put back to the Ken
nebec, but their rescue was con
sidered almost miraculous.

PoBTiiAND, April 1L A private dis

man, run over by a car on Tuesday,
held to-day, the jury found ho was

Neither the short line or the Walla

sandstorm a few miles east of Celilo.
In a cut extending along the track a
quarter of a mile the track was cov

The storm is still raging furiously

Abtobia, April 11th, 1889.
To the Editor op The Dailt Astoeian.
I was very much surprised this
morning to find published in to-day's
paper a letter addressed to myself
from senators Dolph and Mitchell
and representative Hermann relating
to the appointment of collector of
customs at this port, a copy of
which as stated by the gentlemen
in the letter they had "taken the lib
erty to send a copy of this letter to"
the several parties named therein.
One of those persons took the liberty
of having the letter published with
out consulting either myself or the
other two parties mentioned. This
action I think was injudicious, im
politic and entirely uncalled for, if
not a gros3 breach of confidence.
