The Scandinavian comedy company

Never waste time telling people
what a lot of good things you have

The great popularity of the Seaside

A number of days ago, Joe Myers,
well known in this city, while at work
for contractor Parker over on Shoal
water bay, was badly injured, so much
eo that his recovory was considered
hopeless. News has been received
from Montesano that ho will surely
recover, and is even now gaining
health and strength.
The Oregonian htis been investigat
ing the term "dago," often applied to
Italians and Portuguese, and finds
that it is probably a corruption ot tho
Italian word "dico" I say. Tho north
ern Italians, natives of Tuscany and
Piedmont, have a fashion ot using
this word, as many Americans in nar
rating a story, "I says, says L" And
w they have been styled "dicos," which
has been corrupted into "dago."
In referenco to the unfortunate
death ot William H Walker, noticed
in our dispatches, the Oregonian
says: "Mr. Walker was a man of large
frame and remarkably handsome; a
big-hearted, frank-natured, pleasant
m&nneredman, genial and companion
able, one who had the happy faculty of
making friends wherever ho went. He
has traveled all over the northwest,
and probably no man in Oregon was
moro widely known ot more highly
esteemed by those with whom he was
brought in contact, and a host of
friends throughout the northwest -will
be pained to learn of his untimely
death. Ho was in the prime of man
hood, .and might reasonably have
looked forward to a long and useful
lite, and had, by his exertions, placed
himself in a position where he could
look forward to a release from the, ar
duous business duties he had so long
and faithfully discharged."

Carnahan & Morrison havo only
about three days' work more to com
plete tho road down Elk creek to
Brighton Beach. It is expected that
they will then be enabled to do some
work on this end of the road in the
valley of tho Necanicum, above "Will
iamson's place. It is thought by some
that a better road can be made by
bridging the Necanicum near Eber
man's place, and then keeping along
tho side of tho hill to Williamson's,
thus keeping out of the bottom land of
the valley, which is too soft to be a
good road during tho winter, spring
and early summer. Some favor a
bridge across the Necanicum below
Beerman's, the road to then go up on
the west bank of the creek. These
different schemes will be discussed
probably at the next meeting of the
county court and the most practicable
route decided upon. The inhabitants
in that section are becoming so nu
merous that the matter of roads is one
of increasing importance.
Tbe City Taxes.
Auditor Jewett and his deputy,
Phil Cook, have been about four
weeks making out the new assessment
roll for the city. Maps were made.
and on these were placed the figures
on "Wright's assessment roll. Tho
board of equalization of the council,
consisting principally of councilmen
Welch jmd Parker, in connection with
the auditor, went over tho maps and
markod thereon the new assessment,
then the auditor and his assistant
made out tho roll from the maps, and
it will bo ready at tho next meeting of
The total figures will bo not far
from $4,827,200, and as that sum is
nearly double the assessment of last
year, tho levy to raise tho required
amount will necessarily bo smaller
than usuaL No one is authorized to
state what tho levy is, as it has not
yet been mado by the council, and
though a sum has been agreed upon
to recommend to tho council, that
body alone has power to decide what
it shall be, and therefore, perhaps, it
would bo well for irresponsible parties
to wait until tho levy has been mado
before they announce it
The roll as handed in by City Asses
sor Wright, was $4,429,406, so that
the board of equalization has in
creased it nearly S400.000, and the lat
ter roll is tho one which will go to tho
The Clackamas Hatchery.
A reporter who visited the Clacka
mas hatchery a few day ago found the
place unusually quiet Mr. Hubbard,
who is in charge, has all tho trouglis
in the hatchery ready for tho reception
of. eggs. Tho racks which were torn
down by the high water last year have
been replaced with new ones that are
much moro substantial, and so built
as to be easily token apart and moved
away in case of high water. The
water used in hatching tho eggs will
tins year be taken from the Clackamas
river instead of Clear creek, the
source heretofore employed. The
engine pump3 the water into a large
wooden tank, and this feeds all the
troughs through which the water is
kept constantly running during tho
process ot hatching. It is thought
that tho water from the Claokamas
river will produce better results than
that from Clear creek, owing to the
fact that the temperature is the same
as it is where salmon are allowed to
spawn in the river.
At present there is practically noth
ing being done. Mr. Hubbard keens
things in shape and draws salary.
TJ. S. Fish commissioner Livingstone
Stone and his lawn tennis outfit havo
gone to Washington. Only a few
salmon havo thus far been put in, and
it is thought that tho ruu will bo
lighter than usual. The river is very
Mr. Hubbard is of tho opinion that
quite a number of fish went up stream
before the racks were put in. The
state fish commissioners are of the
same opinion, and in consequence
would not be surprised with a small
run. bhould, however, all fishing bo
stopped below the hatchery, thero
will be enough salmon caught to
supply the hatchery with eggs, and
possibly also enough to stock the
branch hatchery at Warrendale.
Tho blame is to bo attached to the
red tape usually necessary to observe
in dealing with tho government
While the fish commissioners were
adjusting an arrangement with Uncle
Sam for tho rebuilding of the racks
the salmon were quietly going up
stream. It will bo a month or six
weeks yet before the work of the
hatchery commences in real earnest
A Chening Gum Suppressed.
Several months ago a chewing gum
factory at'Cleveland, O., conceived tho
idea of making a new brand of gum,
wrapping it in imitation bo green,
backs and calling it "Greenback Chew
ing Gum." It was put on the market
and made a hit, large lots being sold.
A government detective, who chews
gum, bought a stick of the brand, and
ho at once saw in tho imitation $5 bill
a violation of tho statutes of the
United States. Ho notified the trpas-
ury department at Washington of his
discovery, and this telegram was sent
out to all the district secret service of ef
ficers: "Greenback chewing gum has a
wrapper that is a violation of section
5,430. Suppress it" Large seizures
of the articlo were made and the salo

JUS LIFE EATEN AWAY.
Horrible Fate of a Chicago Hod-Carrier Wfco
Fell Into a Tit or SIsck-LIrae.
Patrick Kane, a hod-carrier, fell
into a pit of slack-lime ho wa3 prepar
ing at tho yard ot Bobert Borland,
piasrerer, ooi west ;ne street, and
died from the effects at his home, 61
Hastings street, yesterday morning,
says tho Chicago Herald of August
6th. Kane was a stalwart Irishman,
31 years old, and possessed a record of
unbroken good health, but on tho day
the accident occurred ho complained
of a sick headache. At the close of
the day's work his employer asked
him to prepare some lime for the next
day's work. Kane at first denlinol rm
the nlea that he was ill. hnfc wra
finally persuaded to resume work.
None of the laborers were about the
yard when Kane began working the
lime, and his employer went back to
tho office to calculate estimates on
some jobs in hand.
About 7 o dockKano. wiin Wt iwnrv
and tired, leaned heavily on tho mixer
wim wnicune was stirring up tho lime.
The plank on which he stood had been
thrown carelessly across the corner of
tho box. His weight turned it over,
and before he could regain hisbalauce
or utter a cry for help he fell full
length into tho boiling, bubbling hme.
He sank down, no part of his body es
caping contact with the burning liquid,
except his left arm and tho upper part
of his face. Kane was a strong man,
and though half blinded by the specks
of lime that splashed up from the box,
and suffering horribly from the mouth
ful of fiery liquid that he had swal
lowed in his fatal plunge, he crawled
out, staggered a few paces, and then
fell prostrate on the sand heap, where
he was found a few minutes later by
From Ins shoulders downward tho
lime had eaten into his clothes and
was slowly making its way through
tho flesh of tllQ nnfnn;finna i?it
The soles of his boots had dropped off I
anu nis trousers trom tuo lence down
hung in shreds from his slowly con
suming limbs. Tho skin on the upper
part of his right arm, which was bared
to the shoulder, had been burned away
and the muscles and tendons had suc
cumbed to the destroyer. Tho nails
on the lingers had dropped off almost
immediately after coming in contact
with tho lime and Uiq hand was tightly
chuched as if to conquer the madden
ing pain. The liquid crept slowlv but
relentlessly through his shirt, eating
its destructive way and frightfully
bcorching his chest and back. The
man was a mass of burning flesh and
lime, and when Borland, liis employer,
found him on the sandheap tho fatal
lime had effectually done its deadly
work. Borland rushed for the hose
pipe and attempted to check tho pro
gress of destruction by deluging Kano
with cold water.
Then, despairing ot the man's life,
he carried him to his buggy with the
lime-eaten clothes still clinging to his
burned body and drove the injured
man home. For a week Kane hovered
between life and death. None of the
sufferers seen by Dante during his
journey through tho Iuferno could
