On February 8th Dr. Jny William
Hudson of San Francisco wll
lecture on the "Passion Play" as
, presented at the little peasant vil
Isgc of Oberaninicigun, Garmany
The play deals with the scenes uih
persons of the Passion Week in the
life of Christ, more titan seven liun
drcd persons taking part in tiic play
nt its home. The persons arc se
lected at an early age and trained
through many years to take a cer
tain character. Their lives and gciv
eral moral tone must be of the very
lest, else they arc not permitted to
take part. The play thus becomes
a very import factor in the moral
and mental training of these inter
esting people. Dr. Hudson has
spent several months among these
people studying the plot, and char
acters of this world famed play.
Mr. Hudson is an eminent scholar,
being able to speak seven languages
thus insuring a masterly prcsenta
tion of his subject, he is also able
to present many views of the play
as seen by him in 1900. Come and
enjoy an evening with this scholar
and orator and help your public
Upon order of the road super
visor, William Hawley, Clias. Heir-
ford and E. J. Chandler went upon
the premises of G. H. Stone, near
the city limits of this city, last week
nnd cut down a tree. At the time
it was supposed that the tree was
in the county road. Mr. Stone
claimed not and ordered the men
off. They failed to go and con
tinued the work of falling the tree
Mr. Stone had them arrested for
cutting timber on laud not their
own, and they went before Judge
Vaughn for trial, represented in
court by Attorney J jlinson, while
Attorney John M. Williams con
ducted the case for the state. Upon
technicality, they were discharged
and before another warrant could
be issued they had disappeared and
atSlast accounts could not be appre
bended. It seems there is some
difficulty in determining the width

iiiounAi'iir or jajikhchai'iv.
I was born August 8, IH'.'l', in Onemlngn
County, New York. Moved to Ohio,
from tliero to Missouri and then to
Iowa. From Iowa across the pliiimi
with ox tenuis In 1817 to Oregon in com
pany with Prior lllulr. Inane ltriggs,
Ix-itcr Ilulin, Colonel Him, Alkln,
Davin. Charnel, Mulligan and others.
Started from Iowa last of March. I think
It was hut of November whon we reached
ti.evutllomentain tho Willamette valley.
Mud plenty of gram on tbu road and our
stock fared well but lost two head by
Indian shooting them. Our guard did
not about when liu ought tobavu done
no, but called for me. Before I could
get to him tho Indian wan too far away
to lilt but I shot cIoho enough to him to
make lilm drop bin rabbit skin, you-bet.
IndhuiH atolu 11 yoke of oxen but wo got
them back. We had no Hickucsa to
amount t anything during the long
journey. We left the main route some-
where near I'nrt Hall and camo In on
the Southern route opened by fe'eutt and
Apidcgato. I took up n donation laud
claim in I So I on the Coast Fork of ,tbe
Willamelfo" one mile and 11 half fiTim
where Cottage Grovo now is which I
mill own and on which I now reside
till.' Dccomlicr, 1000. In 1848 I went in
company with others to tho mouth of
Itogue Itiver going througii Camus
prairie (would not do to cull it by its
Indian nnlnii) and tb rough ihu tough
R'igiie H'vcriiiiiuntainH to Itngue Itlvcr
aud down the river to ha mouth, having
A good pilot to tdiow dm the way. On
thin trip wo were trying toget to Cali
fornia. At the mouth of Itngue Itiver
tho company had hoiiio misunderstand-
ing and a separation took place, about
Inilf tho company returning. Part of the
company with mo went about thirty
mile farther south along tho coast.
Indians stole a couplo of ' inulea from
Colonel I'ork 011 the moiiutaina near tlio
river. In trying to get to California on
thin route wo found the Indiana so strong
and manifestly hostile that after the
division nt our company wo wcro not
strong enough in number to successfully
make the trip and hud to return. At
0110 stream wo had Indian to cross us
over. When they got part of tho com
pany over they saw the advantage they
had over us nnd turned tho cnuoe looso.
Hero wo wcro divided; but wo flnnlly
settled tho matter by giving an Indian a
shirt to bring uh tho boat. Ho did and
took tho rest of us over. Wo found a
barricade of split boards set up endwise
and seasholls piled on ono sido to inako
It solid. After consulting with our guide
wo found we would have to pass a nar
row place where tho bluffs overhung tlio
trail nnd wo would havo to tight at a
fearful disadvantage. We concluded it
best and safest to return na half of tho
company having left us wo were too few
in numbers to fight our way through. In
1840 In company with Blulr, Hill apd
Briggs I started again to California along
tho regular trail by Yrekn to tho gold
mines, tojhunt gold. Well, wo hunted it
hut did not make much in tlio mines and
in 1850 alnrtod home by way of San Fran
cisco and took passage on the Ilackon
staff 11 llttlo sail pilot boat for tho mouth
of the Columbia lllvor, but with ndvorso
winds, eight days In a storm of wind and
nino days becalmed, wore delayed until
we wore about out of proviai.ns and
water. Tho captain took sick and en
trusted tho vessel In chargo of ono that
oltlior did not know how to reckon or
lost his reckonings. Said wo wero opo-
si to Montoray, California, when wo wero
noar tho mouth of Itoguo River. I told
tho captain wo wore near Itoguo IMvoras
I recognized tho place, remoinboring how
tho coast looked as I saw It on provlous
expedition mentioned, Tho captain
tried to run into tho mouth of Itoguo
Itlvor but ran aground, wrecking tho
boat, but snyed tho passengers, with
out provision, far from tho scttlcmenlH
and the roughen kind of mountains to
go through to get home. 1 told tho cap
tain ho could not get In there as the
chart I hiiw did not glvo enough water
only nt high tide. He looked at mo 11s
if I did not know anything about it then
took! a skiff and went over the bar Into
the river. Ho camo back to the boat and
na id wo could go In. I lied up what
llttlo I had In a pack got my gun and
ammunition and by that time the boat
struck the sand sidewisc. Tho shock up
set tho stove, iiwny, went what little was

ashore and crossed over to the north Hide
of tho river, camo upliho river 11 llttlo way

ing mo started out, climbed 11 little
beucoor hill, shot n dcernnd feasted on

eighteen days to get from tho mouth of
