The boy was nway ajl week and
none of the othci members of the
family knew where he was, which,
however, was not an unusual cir
cumstance. When the father had not

to tue J'eton place in tune to ex

bullet hole in the skull, accounting
for the death. The inquosO was
postponed until next morning.
Coroner Crook empaneled jury
composed of Messrs. Chflctwell,
Allen, Hamilton, Willy, nngVlU
iam and Richard Vuudevert,v,slhis

eldest son Isaac, who had seen the
father Sunday nftunioon, and the
youngest sou CIe'claiid, who had
U-eu cninpiug with the father and
said he let the old liiuti nil right

word of iJr. Helknap as to the
necessarily fatal character of the
wound, moved the jury to reiwrt
tnat deceased came to his deatn
.rout a bullet wound inflicted at
jioiuc time bet ween the 6th and 13th
of September. No attempt was
wade 111 the jury s verdict to place
rurtpouaitm.ty lor the fatal aqot.
Cleveland Donkel's testimony
was to the effect that the relations
Ijclween hin and his father had
iK-eu harmonious since the Fourth
of July, when the father got some
liquor a. id they bad a quarrel. He
aid he lelt the camp about 8
o'clock Monday morning, when his

riding for cattle.

had $35 10 40 in cash at the time
lie was slain. No trace of this whs
found on the lody, but a silver
watch was in a pocket of the cloth

that. The body was heavily cloth
ed and the outer coat was buttoned
to the coin, indicating that it was

llrtish had been burned over the
grave after thu burial, witn the
apiMieiil purpose of obliterating all
surface marks. The bed of the son ,
which had been near the fire, hea
also beetr burned, bet the appear
ance of-things tended to the theory
that the brush fire had cauglit in
the Iwd after the slayer had lijft
rather than that the bed had been
used pur)oely to feed the flames.
Mr. Uoukel Had thu niisioriuiiej
to be very quarrelsome when in
liquor, which was not seldom, and
his uncontrollable conduct has lud
to much lauiily iiiharmony. The
sou Cleveland had similar traits,
which, with his 1 la bit of going con
stantly armed, gave him a reputa
tion that was not good. These
circumstances, together with the
disup)oarnucc of the lather and sou
at the same time bred, susjiicion in
the minds of ncighlors that thu
son was resjionsiblc for the lather's
death. Thu bullet that killed the
old man was found in his, brain.
It was of .38 caliber, the snme as

having come across the mountains
by team. They are the guests of

Mr. Pry reports that considerable
snow has already fallen in the
mountains, though at no place was
the road covered. No forest fires

est warden at Pish Lake told him
that unusual care had been taken
this year to prevent fires. The
Oregon cc Caliiornia Railroad Com

the Northern Pacific has a similar
tuuetiouary working with tfie
government officials to prevent fires
in the Cascade mountains. A very
efficient patrol has been maintained
ever since the dry season begun.

tMirl, came in from the railroad
Tuesday night and the men spent
Wednesday 111 the woods to the
westward of lend, where the Simp
son & Powers company has lur&c
holdings of forest land. Mr. Simp
sou wus wearing a boil 011 his ear,
which made him think that Oregon
had not dealt kindly with him. Mr,
Ryan, though convinced that this
country will be the seat of a huge
lumber industry, is not so sure the
development will be very soon.
The railroad question, he says,
must first Iks settled. He expresses
the opinion that an cast and west
line will open this country to the
best advantage. At the same time
he says he hardly expects to sec
any great lumber activity in the
L'jpcr Deschutes valley in less than
five years. The fact that few tim
ber land titles are yet indefeasible
he thinks bus an important Ixmring
in the matter. In two or three
years those titles will all be clenred
up and then the ltimbcrmencaii af
ford to put money into enterprises
here, for they will then know what
they can rely ou. Now it is taking
more or less risk.
XIr. Rynu says Rend is the best
point for a lumbering center in the
valley and that The Meadows ranks
next. Hut mostAif the logs must
be hauled on railroads. The river
will serve a strip along its border,
but most 01 the timber is too far
from the river to be handled by any
other transportation means than
