Austin Craig, charged some mouths
ago by a Suiupter, linker county,
bank witb embexaleiueut, has In
patience awaited the action of the
grand ury. That body bas returned
Into court "not a true bill of indict
ment." The Itaker City Herald,
noticing tha mutter, say: "Craig
was the Whitney agent of the Bank
t Sampler. From the evidence
was determined thttt h acted in that
capacity without pay, further than
belug allowed a line of credit ut the
bank to carr'out some small real
estate and mining deals. On account
of a lax system of jeeouut at both
ends of the liue, Craig was permitted
to overdraw his account. Informa
tion was sworn out against him by
officials of the bank, charging him
with embetzlenicnt. The case was
sent to the grand jury by the trial
magistrate with mot a true bill' as
the result. The graud jury found
that no fraud was attempted by Mr,
Craig; that the suit arose from e
misunderstanding. The aharge
against Craig was for a time the sen
tlon of the day, so prominent were
the parties Interested, and so high
was the reputation of Mr. Craig, who
has been completely vindicated and
exonerated b the grand jury."
There is little to say this week
about the Portland-Nehalem rail

The Southern Pacific Company has

as Orange Hall. The two side w.ills
of the proposed structure are built,

story but a high one reaching fully
thirty feet to the top of the walls of
tho other two buildings. There
will be a gallery at the Main Street
end. The play house will be 41 feet

names of the promoters have not ful

certain that the building will lie

and the On-Operative Company, that
owns the ground, are willing to meet
the promoters halfway.

D. T. Phillips, whose Illness was re
ported last week, Is s'owly recovering
and the only worry he has is that
his wife is also sick and he has net
strength to nurse her back to health
but bna to delegate that work to
their children. Dun ..Phillip, as
his associates call him, and his wife
were joined in wedlock April 27.
1S45, and on the 27th of next month
they will have, lived together as
husband and wife, for 57 years.
Twelve children have been born to
them, nine of whom are living.
These, for the most part, are gather

lips immigrated in 185(1 from Ut.
Clair county, Illinoix, about twenty
miles east of St 1hiis, to Oregon, ar
riving here, Jan. 20, 1857. They
came to Washington county and
bought a tract of land In tho forks of
Dairy Creek, a part of tho Richard
Arthur donation. This he kept for
several years, nt the end of which
time he noted tho fact that he wbs
off the main line of trafilc nnd that
if ho expected to U In the swim, he
must changn location. Following
his idea, he looked for and found a
purchaser to whom be sobt his half
section for (1,100. Taking into ac
count the iiiiprovmenln put on the
place, buildings, li'nces and tho like,
he sold at a loss but be wan free to
make another choice. This was in
1805. Ho se lected his present home,
a part of tho Macklin donation on
the base liue road Just east ol where
Corir-lius now is.- For the half sec.
tlon, Macklin asked (1,500. Phil
lips did not have quito that much
money, but he knew where he could
get what he needed so be wanted
Macklin to qusto a figure at spot
cah, The sum named was 1 1,350.
He hired what money he needed,
from Ira Purdin, paying 12 per cent,
interest, which at that date was con
sidered a low rate. He had some
natural prairie but where he wanted
to build there was timber. This
was felled first. There was one
large tree however, that was spared.
It stood east of the hous? and the
limbs cut off nesriy to the top. It
was a land mark for many years.
The base line road had been cut
through the timber a short time lie-Ion-,
and was the main line ( tiaffic
for all the country about Foreet
Grove and beyond. By 8 o'clock
in tlie foienoiln teams began to pass,
going toward Ilillsboro. The string
of wagons continued without Interup.

lull till 2:30 p. m., when the return
began, but by l o'clocx all had pas
sed and the grev.t silence of the wild
erness was there. In thosri days
there was more travel on the high
way than now but tnen there was no
railroad with from fi to 6 train per
day to relbvf the congestion.

Gto. 11. Durham .one of the
Icadinir attorneys of Portland, was
in Ilillsboro Jar-t Saturday,' paying
taxes on a pert of the A. A. Durham
homestead near Tlgardville, which
George now owns. Mr. Durham
reclaiming some of the land aid
either he or his sou will grow onious
on It. Forty-five years ago, perhaps
a little longer. A. A. Durham dam.
ed Fano Crock so as to create a valu
able water power. Durham optat
ed both a saw mill and a "grist
mill thero for many years. The
datu raised the water till there was a
mill K)iid of about thirty-five acres.
Logs floated about the pond and iu
time had gras end brush growing
uu them. This weut on till sufficient
weight made the log top heavy
when it would tip over and the gram
and silt would drop off aud sink to
the bottom. More grass would grow
and the thing was repeated. Beaver-
dam land wai making aud tor forty
years this process has been going on
Occasionally the dam would break
when repairs had to be made so that
Geo. H. rather ruefully asserts that
'we sunk (20.000 In that dam."
Well, a few winters ago the dam
was again washed out and A. A,
having been gathered to his fathers
and Geo. II. and 11. L. being in tbe
business whirl of Portland, there
was no one to rebuild, so the mill
pond was drained and those 30 acres
became dry land. In fact, they are
worth more than the mills. Mr,
Durham lluds that bo has fertile
beaverdam enriched by rotted
vegetation and the leaching) of barn
yards from Bertha nar Portland, to
tne still pond where the silt of 20
miles settled to the bottom. Mr,
Durham reclaims fivo acres this
spring and carefully cultivates, that
ho may have a garden for onions
m'Xt year. He counts it a lucky
moment when the flood broached
the old c am and drained tbe waters
of half a century.
A committee from the Ilillsboro
board of trade met the City Council,
of Portland, by arrangement last
Wednesday when the matter of a
franchise fr th Portland-Forest
Grove Klectrl.) Moter was considered.
Tho gentlemen from our hoard of
trade an: Dr. J. P. Tameisie, Messrs
Jimii Hiiute, of Shute's bank, J. A
Itnl.rie, farmer; F. M. Ileidel, real
estate and W. V. Wiley, treasurer ol
the board of trade. Hon. K. W.
Haines of Finest Grove joined the
committee In Portland. It was re
presented to the couucil that the
proposed road would puss through
a country not served with modern
transportation facilities except heavy
freight. - The 8. P.-f'o. can aud does
handle that but ihe lighter stuff-
dairy products are not touched. It
may I e urged tiuit wagons do all
that business. True, , all that
now g.as- to msrkct, but with
a speedy lino to the city, the produc
tions of the territory will bo ten fold
greater. This traffic does not now go
to market nor never will by the old
method of transportation. Memliers
c( the council replied by saying the
franchise through the city had been
refused in response to proert
owners along the line who objected
to having a trade car line in front of
I heir residences. The country peo
ple answer by stating that whenever
city property is put on the market
for Hale or rent tho advertisement
always contains a statement of the
nearness to a motor line, thereby
meaning Ihe ease with which the
premises may tw reached. This is
an inducement to buy and makes 'he
property more valuable instead of
rendering it lew. The committee
saw Gradon, son of the prnmotor,
who stated that tho proposed line
started out of the city by the Cornell
road but anon left that track and
doubled back on the hill reaching the
summit at tbe Catholic cemetery on
the Bariies road. It was asserted
that tho Cornell road is on a grade of
!'J- per cent but the moter gets up on
a 3 per cent. The system proposed
for installing here is a very fine one,
hotter than anything on the Coast.
The elder Gradon is connected with
the Indlanoplis, lud., roads that are
well equipped and more beautiful
t iit ii any day coaches on Oregon
roads, electric or steam. The com
pany is organizing again and when
hM details are fixed, another applica
tion for a street franchise will be
made. Last Wednesday the matter
was left in the custody of Ihe street
committee which has a meeting to
day. Oar people will keep in touch
with the Portland street committee
sod when the time conies will be In
a position to effectually help.
