during the temporary absence of the
pastor and his wife, and mode them
selves very much at home. In a brief
space of time tiey had the duilng-room
literally full of tables, spread with a
tempting1 array of good things to eat,
crowded with as jolly a company as
ever assembled. The proceeds were
substantial, consisting of a purse of $35,
beeldea sundry valuable presents. The
recipients of this surprise donation party
say that it was handsomely planned and
was altogether very onjoyablo.

entitled to recover twice tho amount

has received $14,000. Owing to the

from Griswold, he still owes a balance
of $.1,015. Tho government officers

as Griswold is getting old and claims to

Lewis McDaniel, an old settler of this
county, was found in a dying condition
ia the road leading to hla residence in
Ashland last Thursday night about 8
o'clock. Thu appearance indicated that
he had been shot by some party un
known while en his way home, tho top
ot his head being blown off by what ap
peared to be a shot from a gun. When
discovered he was just breathing his
last and could not toll who shot ulm or
for what cause. A man named O'Neill
has been arrested on suspicion and is
being held to await development. Mc
Daniels was something like 48 years of
age, married, and was generally sup
posed to be well fixed in wotldly goods.

Ail that ho has for salo he represent to

from threo to four times as much lor
thpm ae would be asked for any rait
trees propagated In Oregon. Having
succeeded, by means of a list ot high
sounding name of various kinds ofrtjlt,
in getting an order, the other man,
whoso name Is not kriown, comes along
with tho tress In a wagon, delivers
them, collect the money and drives off.
The purchaser has no guarantee what
ever that the tree ard what they were
represented, and herein lies tho swindle,
The troes, Of course-, are raised fn Ore

Cents fctfloce, whereas from SO lo 40
cents have been charged for them. The
manner of working Ib so crude that it is
a wonder any ono is victimized; but
where people aro entirely unsuspecting
and have no thought of guilte, thoy are
deceived. The swindlers had so papers,
note von cards tliat they might have
bad printed anywhere, to show that
they wore from Brighton, T$. Y but
only their own statement to hat effect,
Tile list ot tree which they presented
were always written, and in cAd-pcncil
at that, while the names of some of tho
vaneuea were so iantasucat tliat an
ordinarily well posted man would al
most certainly have suspected them of
being concocted for the occasion. C. D.
Gray, a farmer living near Mt, Tabor,
was the first to suspect Bnelling, and in
order to eqtisfy himself ho wroto to tho
Brighton nurseries and received from
thoownor of that place the following
letter: "I would say in reply to yours
tint! have no agent in Oregon, and
that J. R. Snelling is a fraud and has
ao connection with our nursery. Please
inform your neighbors, and givo tho fel
low a warm reception on Bight." Sub
sequent complaints show that Snelling
and his companion are still selling trees
in Multnomah county.
Caught aad Bound Over.
Wo made mention in our last of the
tact that Potno culprit had run off with
James Moore's horse. Last Friday
morning Deputy Sheriff Kltuuini"-i f
after him, and secured his man in Al
bany, who however bad traded Moore's
horse off to a man residing near Cor val
lis. Ho still clung to the now horse,
which will be returned to the owner who
in turn will havo to deliver up Moore's
horse; but all this will not excuse M. A.
Toller, tho thief, though he claimed on
his preliminary examination before
Squire Goddis lost Monday, that he had
been hired by a certain gentleman, who
claimed to have bought the horse, to
take him 12 miles below Portland, Ore
gon, and had given him $8.50 expense
money. But Teller failed to tell why,
under his agency, he traded the horse
off, nor could he explain who this man
was that had employed him to take the
horso, nor why he, without leave or li
cense, took the saddle out of Singleton'B
barn. He was held in the sum of $500
bail to await the action Of tho next
grand jury, in default of which ho lin
ge rain jail.
A shrewd, prosperous old farmer of
tho bachelor persuasion, named James
Howes, who resides a short distance
back of East Portland, was robbed a
fow days sineo in rather a singular man
ner, Howes, having no wife to guard
his property in his absence, is in the
habit of hiding his money in various
out-of-the-way places, A fellow came
along who had a saddle and two cross
cut saws, which ho wished to dispose
of. Ho "marked them down" so low
that Howes at last agreed to purchase,
and going into an outhouse whore, from
a pile ot potato sacks, ho dug up a roll of
silver, out of which he paid for the artl
cleB. The tramp "marked down" tho
place whore tho inonoy was hid and
went off. Next day Howes received a
payment of $100, which he stowed away
among tho sacks. The building was a
strong one and well provided with locks
and was deemed secure; but the next
night somo one came along with a little
augur, and by boring about 100 holes
cut out a "man-hole," through which
he entered and bore away the coin in
On the afternoon ot tho Sd Inst, a man
named John Nuegland met with a fright
ful fall at Raima's block, in course of
construction in Portland. Just as a
load ot material had boon elevated to
tho fourth story, Nuegland, agulust oft
repeated advice of his fellow workmen
recklessly stepped upon the elevator,
saying, "Hero wo go." His weight
caused the rope to break, and down the
elevator went with him, a distance of
CO feet, smashing it to splinters. Every
beholder expected that Nuegland would
be killed by tho fall, but he picked him
self up and walked off a short distance,
remarking that he had had a fast ride,
but was not hurt. But a moment after
he staggered and fell to tho ground, in
sensible. A physician was summoned
and the injured man taken to hi lodg
ings. No bones were broken, but
It was impossible to ascertain how sorl-
oub hla internal injuries were or what
tho result will bo.

Tho rialndealer says F. P. Hoganlias
received a check of $200 from the United
States postofllco department, his reward
for arresting Todd, the mail and express
robber, about two years ago. Tho ar
rest of Todd was quite a harvest for
Hogan. He received $600 reward from
Wells, Fargo & Co., $450 his per cent of
tho stolon monoy received from Todd,
and an order on the state of $800, inak'
Ing a total of $1650, received in effecting
this arrest. Hogau is exceedingly lucky,
und is likely to follow Cleveland in his
lucky strike. Hogan has been shoriff
of Douglas county and mayor ot Rose
burg, and the only thl&g that prevents
him from becoming governor of Oregon
is that ho has never hanged anybody,
which likewise debars him from bCconi-
