The Lincoln Couuty Leader pub
lishes tbe following railroad gossip:
Tbe solid, substantial and thorough
repairs that are being made on tbe O.
C. it seem to be a very good indi
cation that somelbiug lu the way of
exteulion is contemplated. The
bridges and roadbed are being put in
the best po-isiblc shape, tLousuuds of
ties ar-? being replaced, aud the phys
ical condition of lie road is the best it
has beeu since it was first built, if not
the best it has ever been. All this l.od
been done at an iunueitse outlay of
money, au l at an outlay Unit the
present traffic of the road would never
justify. ' Tne plansable theory then ia I
(but, the owners contemplate 'singe- j
thing moie than the local tratic,- and
that it must be the exteutioii Into
Eastern Oregon so loug looked lor iuid
so ardently hoped for. Mr. Hammond
is a man of very few words, and he is
actually doing today wiiai a great
many capitalists before him hive'
tried to do and failed he Is actually
building a railroad Into Astoria.
Eveivthing indicates that before the
first of 1897 that the Astoria & Uoble
road will be completed and cars run
ning into Astoria. After that giant
project has beeu termiuated by a suc
cessful completion we verily believe
that Mr. Hammond will immediately
turn bis atteution to the O. C. & E.
The undertaking is not so great as tlr.it
of tbe Astoria cV Uoble road, ami while
there will be no great subsidy to earn
the profits and earnings would well re
pay the outlay. It would uot only
open up a vast country by railroad
connection, but it would put the
present line of the O. C. & E. lu a pay
ing, profitable condition. We nave
full faith that August, 1897, will see
the active work on the long-cherished
extention of the O. C. ft E. well under

A BOLD GAME, .
Albany Democrat: Last Friday a
man went to the bottling works of O.
BaeumiearM bought three bottles of
wine, claiming that they were for a
saloon he was startiug up In the hills,
and as he hud a partner he would want
a receipt, which was given him.
Yesterday the uiuu went to Mr.
Baeumle, and giving his name as John
Hurling, claimed to be a special ugeut
of tne Internal revenue office, and de
claring that Mr. Baeumle had violated
the law ,t would take $150 to settle it.
This Mr. Batimle insisted it would be
absolutely impossible to raise. The:
amount was finally cut down"to $20,
Of which -Mr. Baumle paid io and
agreed.to pay the balance. Marshal
Lee had been inlormed of the matter,
and finally suspecting something
wrong telephoned to U. 8. Marshal
Grady, who informed him that there
was no such agent and iluully tele
phoned him to arrest Darling foe im
personating a U, 8. officer, and that
Doputy Marshal Humphrey would be
up to-night and take him back. Darl
ing was arrested and is in the county
J-.dl, It looks like a bold confidence
game to make a haul, and there are
circumst.'iures indicating that Darling
may have a confederate in it.
Laths. Mr. O. Baeumle.the yietlni,
went to Portland and arranged the
matter with the government, by pay.
ing !0 ami costs isi,.oO in all. Darling
appeared before Juslijo Powell With
Hon, J. K. VVetitheifoirt as attorney
and will light tb miitler. The pen
ally of tile .offence, if proven is $500
tine and six mouths lo two yeuis Im
prisonment, and hence Is a very
a. rious matter. Darling is a maiiiibiu
forty years of age, wears a Prince
Albert and has a business look, The
present indications are, though, that
he was playing a sharp game to make
6UIG1DE AT CORVAILIS.
Seyman Myers, of this city, who re
turned from Corvallis last evening,
states that "Billy" Williams, a well
known engineer of Corvallis, com
milted suicide by shooting himself lu
the head witli a revolver.
During the afternoon Williams walk
ed Into Hodes' store aud bought a 32
calihre revolver, and also purchased
some cartridges. He paid for the
weumn aud started out of the store.
The proprietor hadj, hardly replaced
the box upon the slant' when he heard
a shot fired at the front door, Willi
ams had deliberately placed the neap
on to his temple and pulled the trigger.
When Mr, Meyers left Corvallis at 4
o'clock Williams wassteil alive, but his
life-blood was slowly ebbing from an
ugly hole In his temple, aud It was
thought he could uot possibly recover.
Williams was for many years an
engineer iu the empoly of the old Ore
gon Pacific railroad, and for some time
worked in Fisher's flouring mill In Cor
vullis. More recently he has con
ducted a little repair shop near the
ferry. He has been In poor health ami
was in straightened circumstances,
which are supposed to have beei the
cause of his rash act. He was about
60 years old and had no family.
