Item of General Interest Oleaned
From tlie Thriving: I'aclfln
New Telephone Line.
Tho tolephone lino from Langlois,
Curry county, to Uandon, which waa
romplotod last week, ia now in good
working order, and Langloia lias for
tho first timo tolephone communication
with all the important points in the
county. Poles are on tho ground for
the extension of the line to Port Or ford,
and poles aro being cut and distributed
for the farther extcntsiona to Weddor
burn and Gold Beach. It ia supposed
that tho line wilt be extended to Eu
reka, Col., and when tho gap between
IioBoburg and Myrtle Point ia closed
up next summer, tho coast country will
no longer be cut off from communica
tion with the outside world.
Wcu Obld Ore.
Al, Ed and Frank Geiser have
brought from their Bonanza mine to
Baker City, Or., 1,300 ounces of gold,
valued at $21,700, the reault of a 26
day run thia month of a 20-etamp mill.
The ownera of the Bonanza have given
it out that it is thoir intention to in
crease the number of stamps in tlio
quartz mill to GO or more. It ia un
derstood thia improvement will be
made in the near future, or as soon as
tho spring opens. The Bonanza has
an unlimited amount of splendid mill
ing ore. and, with the mill enlarge
ment, this Baker mine will probably
become ono of the largest steady gold
producers in the Northwest.
Damage Wa Slight.
A dispatcli from Monroe, Or., says:
The recent frosts did not do as much
damage to frnit in that section as was
generally supposed. Prunes do not
seem to be hurt to any extent, and in
the worst cases the operators of the
orchards claim that not more than 10
per cent of the trees are injured, and
theao only to a slight degree. Peach
trees fared worse than others, while
Petite prunes came second on the list.
Apples are not injured at all in this
immediate locality.
Ilrulallty at Sea.
The Bailors of the American ship
Erskine M. Phelps, which arrived at
San Francisco a few days ago from Bal
timore, have brought charges of in
human conduct against Captain Gra
ham and First and Second Officers
Bailey and Moye. The men told a
pitiful story of starvation and cruelty,
and many of the sailors show the marks
of beatings, tho mates being the prin
cipal aggressors in tho the beatings.
Want a Factory Moved.
The Coquillo city council has for
warded a proposition to G. W. Peek,
proprietor of the broomhandle factory,
that if he will move the mill north 30
feet from ita present location, they
would give him a five years' leaae on
the land. The main reason for tho
council asking him to do so is to give
more room for getting to and from the
new wharf, which will be badly ham
pered if the mill is not moved.
Orders From the Bast.
The manager of the Pendleton
woolen mills has recently returned
from a very successful trip in the in
terests of the millB, which took him
over noarly the whole United States.
Tho big houses of John Wanamaker,
and Arnold, Constable & Co., and
othors of aucb high standing, placed
orders for blankets, stating that tho
Pendleton mills have no competitors
in that line of goods.
Or the Miocene Ferlod.
A fow months ago J. Bagley, of Air
lie, brought to Independence, Or., some
fossilized teeth which were found near
Airlie. They were sent to Professor
Condon, of the stato university, who
pronounces them "sharks" teeth of tho
miocene period." Other fossils sent
are "a miocene sboll, of the family
naticodo," and "a dentallium shell, of
the miocene peiiod."
Governor Rogers' Appointments.
Governor Rogers has recommended
Quincy A. Brooks, Samuel Haddock
and L. B. Smith, nil of Port Townseud,
to constituo the board of health for the
collection district of Port Townsond.
Tho governor has appointed as trustoes
for the Cheney normal school J. J.
Brown nnd J. N. Allen, of Spokane.
Tho third trustee, E. E. Dempsey, ia
also of Spokane, giving hat city the
entire board.
Stock In Had Condition.
Cattlo, sheep and hogs are in bad con
dition in tho vicinity of Monroo, Or.
Several head of stock havo porishod,
which under ordinary circumstancos,
would havo braved the storms of an
Oregon wlntor, and coino out in tho
spring with plenty of flesh, thus show
ing that the one week of snow was
harder on tho ranchers of tho valloy
than all tho rains and frosts of a com
mon season.
