DEAD MAN FOUND.
- Last i riday morning A. F. Gleasou,
of Dotham, Curry County, on the low
er Rogue, camo in to Grants Pass and
reported that he and G. A. Ruth had
found tho body of a man on Paradise
Bar in Rogue river. In comixuiy with
two other men they hurried the re
mains on the river bank, and rejwrted
to the probate court.
Tho body had apparently been in
the river about three or four weeks
it was that of a man six feet in hoigl
with dark hair and about 88 years of
ago. He was dressed as a miner or
prospector, having on miner's boots,
hluo overalls, ribbed underclothin,
and a black overshirt. In " hi
pockets were found $15 in gold, 85
cents in silver and about $3 in gold
Nothing was found that would cs
lauusu ins Hientity; who tho man
was and how he came by his death is
a mystery. It is said that he was seeu
n Leland several weeks ago when he
made a few purchases and departed
without nnyono learning who he was
or when ho came. There is another
story to the effect that he was ono of
party of four prosjiectors from
Stockton, Oal.,who attempted to go
down the Rogue in a rowboat. The
boat was probably capsized and all, at
least this one, drowned. Tho body
had floated for a considerable distance
down stream, as it was badly bruised
and both arms were broken from roll
ing over the rocks iu tho swift current.
ROW WITH JAPS.
There was a lively scrimmago bo-

their feet, overturning a stove or two
and upsetting things in general. The
little brown men were much maddened
by the jolt, getting an idea into their
stubborn heads that it had been done
ntentionally, and rushing out of the
cars made a wholesale attack ou the
trainmen. Bystanding citizens rush
ed to the rescue and a general riot fol
