A DARING ROBBERY.
Joseph Buhl Knocked Senseless and
Robbed of $Jio.
The city was thrown into great ex
citement Sunday evening hy the start
ling information that a prorulnentcltl
srau had been held up and robbed very
near the corporate limits. Joe Buhl,
a well-known and highly respected
citizen of tills place, had occasion on
Sunday to visit his hop yardjust north
of the paper mill. He had on his per
ton, from (he sal of hops and other
wise, ?2I0, which was securely placed
hi his Inside vest pocket, in an envel
ope. About dusk he started toward
the city. When he approached the
htllc bridge over the canal, through
ihe Whksoui place, it was nearly six
. 'clock and quite dark.' Not thinking
of milia rs and footpads, he was startled
by the command of a tall man stand
ing on the bridge, to stop, which he
did Before he could realize what was
the cause of Hi is unusual command,
lis was struck ' over the head with a
l.-rgeclub. The next thing he knew,
h found himself iu the cold waters of
1 lie-canal, where he had some trouble
in climbing up the slippery banks.
This be finally did and hurried o.i to
(ha public road. He reached Bud
Thompson's residence near the paper
mill, cold and bruised. He then ascer
tained that his watch and money were
pine. Having obtained an overcoat,
lie came inln town and reported his
loss. Soon afterward, two boys brought
in his watch and hat, which had been
picked up by them near the bridge.
The marshal with a posse of citizens
went to the scene of the robbery and
made a careful search for clues, The
sheriff came out tbe next day. The
officers and citizens are using every
means is their power to ferret out the
cowardly perpetrators of this bold rob
bery. If the parties had. been caught
Suuday night, they would have been
elevated to tlie top of a telegraph pole.
The boldness and brutality of this
shows what we may expect, uuless
speedy and severe punishment. Ib vis
ited upon such offenders. No man's
life is safe, if 11 known he has a dollar
in bis pocket. Mr. Buhl owes his life
today to his good luck. His assailants
evidently intended to kill him.
Not For Sale.
The mu-h talked of question of
bonding tlie city to purchase the elec
tric light and water plant was brought
to rather au abrupt finish last Satur
day by Mr. Rawlinga informing the
citizens that he would withdraw bis
proposition to sell, aud that the plant
was now not for sale to the c ty at any
price, that he had sold ene-half inter
ot to N. H. Allen, the well-known
electrician of Albany, and that they
would nerealter run Jt. This was
quite a surprise to many of ourcltizeUB
and it is said some of theni were very
sorry as it took all the air out their

A petition to Governor Pcnnoyer is
being circulated in this city and vicln
ity, asking that G. F. Russell, the
embezzling county school superinten
il. nt be pardoned. It is a queer fact I
that- the very men who probably
oriticizted the outrageous wboltsale
pardoning of criminals from the pen
itentiary, do not hesitate to sign a
petition asking that the practice be
continued, A good many of them
say that murderers and much worse
criminals than Russell have already
been pirdoned, and the pardoning
mill might as well go on to the bitter
