from the engine to one of the

plaoe to get a square meal. It Is said
that at least 75 of these "hungry

The 'till at Pelton & Neil's butcher
shop, in Ashland, was robbed during
the noon hour Friday of t8 or $8 In
change. Suspicion pointed to a 12-year-old
boy, who was rounded up. He
was given the alternative of going to
jail or producing the money. He re
turned the money in a very few min
utes, and no charge was entered
against him. He Is not the only Ash
land boy of his age, either, who needs
to have the parental power strongly
asserted to keep him from dangerous
paths, says the Tidings.
TheGrants Pass Mining Journal says
that during the winter and spring of
1898 a character calling himself
Riley" spentspent much time around
Galice creek, Waldo and Happy Camp
prospecting. Later in the spring he
pnt in time at Oasquet's .Crescent City
and Gold Reach, and then mysteri
ously disappeared. At various times
since then two parties, with a foreign
accent of different nationality, have
covered the same territory, prospect
ing, fishing, drinking and gambling.
It now transpires that these mysteri
ous character were in the government
aecrect service, and that sensational
developments may soon be made.
James Osborn last Tuesday brought
to Baker City an American white
pelican, measuring exactly eight feet
from tip to tip, which he killed Mon
day afternoon on George B. Sturgill's
farm on Lower Powder. It is the first
bird of this species that has been seen
in that section, and it doubtless was on
IU way from the lakes in the Rocky
mountains to the Florida coast, where
(hey are abundant in the winter. It
was brought to the ground by a single
No. S shot, which winged the visitor.
The authorities of Josephine county,
Or., and Del Norte county, Cat., have
notified the Bheriffof Curry county,
Or., that the scene of the Perry mur
der, which was supposed to be in
Josephine county, is inJCurry county.
Curry county h"s sent Surveyor Filz-
hugh to ascertain the correctness of
the report. The scene of the murder
is 75 miles from Gold Beach and the
witnesses will have to come from
Grants Pass and Crescent City, and in
case the crime was committed iu Curry
county it will be an expensive trial.
There is a bear in the neighborhood
of Coos City, which has been decreas
ing tte number of hogs owned by
Lester Smith to an alarming extent.
Bruin devc loped an appetite for fnsh
pork early in the spring, and when
ever he makes a raid he goes the whole
hog, and sometimes more. He has
devoured 17 members of the porcine
family, aud that there is nothing to
indicate that his desire for pork has
been appeased. He refuses to be
poisloned, declines to put his foot in a
trap, and begs to be excused from
hastening his own death by interfer
ing with meat attached by strings to
the triggers of a loaded shot gun.
Mr. Black, the ex-Rogue river ferry
man, has a pair of peculiar freaks in
the animal way, saya the Medford
Mail. Some several weeks ago a
female canine ol his gave birth to
several pups, About the same time a'
brood sow gave birth to a litter of
pigs. The sow was bitten by a bear
about that time so badly as ts mako it
impossible to nurse her young. And
immediately following the pups were
killed and their mother made a foster
mother of the pigs which pigs she
has since nursed.

A NEGRO BOY'S AWFUL CRIME.
He Murdered a Family in the State of
New Orleans, Sept 25. One of the
most atrocious murders in the history
of this state was committed by a negro
boy named John Johnson, In a farm
house four miles south of Indepen
dence. rJoe Cotton, bis wife, her
brother and two Bisters were killed,
t he first by a pistol shot and the other
four with an ax. The fiend who com
mitted this quintuple murder is a
negro boy who has been in the employ
of Cotton siuce April 2. He was al
lowed to sleep In the same house. The
motive Is a mystery as no attempt at
robbery has been made.
Th e only member of the family who
escaped was little Maud Miller, 14
years old. She darted from the house
and gave the alarm. She says she saw
Johnson begin the butchery by strik
ing her mother with an ax. The
murderer is still at large and 1b being
traoked with bloodhounds by a mob,
He will probably be lynched if caught,

Little Town Burned.
Arlington, Or., Sept. 26, A disas
trous fire occured at Cleveland, a small
town about 20 miles north of this place
In Klickitat county. Nine buildings
went up in smoke, including the
principal store, two blacksmith shops,
a hotel and a livery barn. The town
has no fire department, and no ' water
could be used except what was thrown
on with buckets. The destruction is
believed to be the work of incendiaries
although there is no clue to the guilty
parties. ; '
A Sad Accident.
An exceedingly sad accident befell
the family of David Bhough, of Lob
ster, while returning home from this
city. Mr. Shough is a member of the
republican county central committee
from his precinct and had been to
Corvallis attending the McKinley
demonstration the day before, He
was acoompanled by his wife and
three-year-old child and was driving a
wide track wagon, which was probab
ly the real cause of the accident. While
descending the Alsea mountain, near
Yew camp, where the roadway is very
narrow, one of the wheela Btruck a root
projecting from the bank, throwing
Mr. Shough and his little child to the
uround. The child fell immediately
in front of one of the wheelsj'
which rolled over his head, crushing
his skull aud killing him in tantly.
The remains were interred next day.
Mr. and Mrs. Shough were greatly
shocked over the distressing accident
and have the sympathy of a large
circle of friends. Corvallis Gazette.
The Cowan Property Sold.
The J. L. Cowan property was sold
at U. 8. Marshal's sale at 10 o'clock"
this forenoon by Deputy TJ. S. Marshal
George Humphrey, and was bid in by
Mr. Wallace McCamant, attorney for
the plaintiff, the Bank of California,
for $5,000. There were two other bids.
The property has been rented by Dr.
G. w. Maston, who will move into
the residence as soon as fitted up for
the purpose. For two or three years
there has been a great uncertainty as
to who owned this property, and it
has been allowed to run down. It
will be pleasing to see the transforma
tion that will take place in the artis
tic and tasty hauds of Dr. Maston.
After that $15,000.
In 1892 upon the first sale of the 0.
P. a deposit of $25,000 was made by
Col. Hogg. This was reduced by ex
penses to $19,000, all of which was de
posited in the Job bank. It is now
worth about $6,000 A petition was
filed for the return of the $25,000, but
was denied. Since then there have
been numerous proceedings, terminat
ing on Wednesday with a notice of
appeal by Col. Hogg served upon the
respondents, Farmers Loan & Trust
Co., Wm, Mackey and D. A. Osburn,
sheriffs, J. R. Brysou, aaaignee of the
Job bank, and B, W. Wilson, county
clerk. Wallis Nash is attorney for

$5,000 with S. E. Young surety.
The Killing of Henry Bruso,
The coroner's inquest over the re
mains of Henry Bruso, killed by a
blow from a club in the bands of Ned
Sutherlln, seemed to make the defend,
ant's case appear in a better light, says
the Roseburg Review. It appeared
from the testimony that Bruso had
struok Sutherlln hard enough to make
his nose bleed. George Nolta came
Into the bouse after that and asked .
Sutherliu what the matter wus. Suth-
erlin Bald that Bruso had struck
him. Bruso then aaked Nolta if he
wanted to take it up, and dragged him
out of doors. No one saw the blow
struck that crushed Bruao's skull; but
Sutherlln admitted striking him.
Work of the Immigration Board.
The immigration board is now re
ceiving about 60 letters of inquiry per
day, the replies to which involves a
large amount of labor. A personal
letter is dictated to every inquirer.
Some ask that information be sent to a
number of their friends, which necsst
tales the writing of separate letters to
each. The board has only two type
writers employed at present, and, al
though they are probably the hardest
worked typewriters in the city, they
cannot keep up with the work. A
large amount of literature is also
mailed dtily to those who write letters
of luqulry, and several perhous are
kept busy attending to this. Ore-gonian.
