A large crowd went from bere to
attend the republican ratification in
Albany Monday, in honor of Wm.
McKinley, their nominee for presi
dent. There were 83 excursion tickets
sold from this place, besides many
drove down. It is estimated
that there was at least 160 Lebauouites
in the city. All ttat attended report
having had a fine time, and it was an
orderly and well behaved crowd.
Some say the procession numbered
over a thousand, while others say there
was not, over 300 in the line of march.
Tbe Lebanon McKinley Club marched
in a body with several banners of their
own, and made a nice appearance. It
was the largest visiting olub present.
Our boyB report that Mitchell made a
flue speech, but he was very hoarse
aud It was very difficult for him to
talk. Other speeches were very com
mon. The Minnesota Lake Tribune says:
The brothers, Frauk and John Son-
nek have returned to their parential
home, from Oregon. Many of the
older people of this vicinity will re
member that John left home about 17
years ago, and, therefore, as "Father
Time" has not been idle, it is not
strange that he was not known by hie
relatives and friends. Frank went
away last fall In company with Frank
Petrock and Wm. Bretchet, and will
remain at home for tbe present.
John is married and is comfortably
settled at Lebanon, Oregon. He will,
however, remain iu Minnesota this
fall and winter and tend threshing
machine separator for his brother
Albert. If the climate agrees with
him bere be will return to Oregon in
the spring, dispose of his property in
that stale and return to Miunesota
with bis family to reside permanently.

A Fatal Quarrel.
Oakland, Or., Sept. 21. Saturday
evening at 10 o'clock Ed Sutherland,
Geo. Nolta and Henry Bruso went to
the residence of James Brown for tbe
purpose of having a chicken supper.
Nolta proposed that he aud Brown
take a drink of liquor. Brown bad
bis baby in bis arms, and Nolta aaid
after Brown had drank, "Give the
baby some." Bruso remonstrated, a
quarrel ensued between Nolta and
Bruso, and Brown- ordered them out
of the bouse. Southerland followed,
tbey renewed tbe quarrel when
Sutherland secured a large club and
struck Bruso on the back of the head,
fracturing his skull and knocking him
senseless. Sunday two physicians
were summoned and trepaned his
skull. Bruso never regained con
sciousness and died this
evening at six o'clock, Sutherland
was arrested and had his preliminary
trial today and was bound over to ap
pear before the next grand Jury.
Ibis promises to be almost a similar
case to that of Sam Brown, who
murdered Alfred Kincaid two years
ago, and another trial to test tbe valor
of Douglas county officers, who have
quite a reputation for letting crimi
The Riot at Leadville.
Lbadvillk, Col., Sept. 21. The
miners strike which began in June
last and bas paralyzed business and
caused suffering and hunger in hun
dreds of homes, bas resulted In blood
shed. It it Is known that five lives
were sacrificed in the fighting thia
morning. Tbe miners had struck tor
an Increase from $2 60 to $3 00 per
day. The rioters began firing into tbe
Coronado and Emmet mines and at
tempted to blow up the former with
dynamite. More terrible even than
the holocaust of flames was the loss of
life. Jerry O'Keefe, foreman of hose
No 2, was turning on the water when
a bullet entered his side. He is mor
tally wounded in a hospital. An un
known man was blown up with dyna
mite. Another man is on the point of
death, being mortally wounded by
At 3:30 a. m. an attack was make on
the Emmet mine. There were over
100 shots fired, but a telephone mes
sage from the mine states the attack
was repulsed, and that thus far no
lives were lost and no damage to prop
erty had resulted.
A correspondent of the Salem
Journal gives tbe following account of
the clambake at Newport on Sunday
in bonor of Senator Mitchell and
others, of whom only Mr. Mitchell
"Saturday's McKinley-Hobart rally
was concluded here yesterday, with a
clambake. An excursion was run
from Albany, Corvallis and interme
diate points, by the O. C, & E. rail
road, numbering 160, and river excur
sion by steamer Richardson, from
Toledo, brought an additional crowd
numbering about fifty. All residents
of Newport and surrounding resorts
were out, as well as farmers in that
vicinity. The entire crowd was est!
mated at 300. Shortly after 2 o'clock
the afternoon eatables were
served to the very hungry
throng. The bake was a success,
Tbe eatables prepared for the occasion
consisted ol 20 bushels of clams, 100
crabs, 6 bushels of potatoes, 6 dozen
chickens, 16 dozen ears of corn and
about a half dozen salmon. Following
tne dinner, senator M Renew made
short address, commenting on the
success of tbe affair.
Political Situation at Lebanon.
A corresbondent from this place to
the Albany Democrat writes as fol
Lebanon, Or., Sept. 21
Free silver people are numerous at
Lebanon, reports to the contrary not
withstanding. We have a large and
enthusiastic Bryan club, and we are
doing all that is within om power to
carry Llnu county for Bryan. Speak
era are greeted with large audiences,
and, Judging from the enthusiasm
manifested, the people are tired listen
ing to tbe dictates of Wall street,
syndicates aud silk-stocking corpora
Tbe people of this county are deter
mined to emancipate themselves from
bondage by casting their ballots for
the ablest orator, and advocate of the
free and unlimited coinage of silver at
the ratio of 16 to 1.
Lebanon is doing her part towards
helping this great cause along. Let
otber towns throughout the state fol
low her example.
Messrs. B. F. Kirk aud J. R. Ewing
have consolidated their barber shops,
They have leased the St Charles shop,
but for the present they will occupy Mr.
Kirk s old shop until they get the
other one repapered and otherwise
fitted up. They have reduced shav-
iug to 10 cents aud hair cutting to 16
cents for cash only; but will charge
tbe old prices on Sundays' aud boll-
days. Messrs. Kirk aud Ewing are
tiotb good barbers and no doubt will
do a good business.
