A band of Columbia river Indians
ho have been camped down near the
depot in thi city the paat few days, had
serious trouble Saturday night.
All , day Saturday they circulated
bout town freely and in the afternoon
engaged in wrestling witn wbite men
which afforded a great deal of amuse

Late in the evening the Indians re

but not ontil they had made arrange

of "Fire Water."
Along about 11 or 12 o'clock at night
great commotion was heard in that
vicinity. Guns were discharged, the
war hoop raised and the air was rife
with bad Indian language.
Marshal Gurdane and Night Watch
Rasmus hastened to the tcene ot trouble
to find frightened Indians scattered in
all directions. However, there were

were so seriously hurt that they were

Winnemuck was not so badly injured,
but sufficiently that he will remember
his experience with "Fire Wate" for
some time to come.

of trouble Tom Sampson and others,

Secretary Cwinn Hopeful for
Better Prices for Oregon'
Wool this Year.
J. H.Gwinn, secretary of the Oregon
Woolgrowers' Association, is more
hopeful than ever for good prices for
Oregon wool thia year, says the E. O.
Advice from the East indicate that the
same grades of wool are telling at an
advance of 1 to lyi cents per pound
over last years prices and that buyers
are very active In contracting at present
prices, which would clearly Indicate
that they expect a raise, before the
season's clip is disposed of.
Mr. Gwinn haa received the following
figures from a Boston review of the wool
situation, which indicate that all the
merchants and buyers confidently ex
pect a raise in price before the clip of
1904 is marketed. The review says :
'If the Boston market lacks interest
just now in point of sales, there is en
ough activity m the growing sections to
make amends and show that there are
plenty of operators with faith in the
future. Bayers are numerous in Wyom
ing and Utah, which are just now the
centers of activity. The new clip is
moving lively at stiff prices. At Caspar,
Wyoming 13 and 14 cents have been
paid. Choice clips have been contracted
at the latter figure, that were bought
last year at 13 centa.
"In Utah nothing- leti than last year 'a
prices are acceptable to the growers,
the range being from 13 to 15 cents,
with what are called medium xlips
selling for 14 and 15 cents.
"Many of the leading Boston houees
are now operating and are paying the
prices demanded. Some few are hold
ing back, as usual, but it would seem,
however, that the price of the clip has
been established and that the wool sold
in Oregon and other new sections yet to
be opened to the market this season,
would be on the same high level aa
those already told."

One neighbor takes bia potatoes

tack in trade. Another neighbor goes
to the same place, buys potatoea, pays
one dollar and seventy five cents pe

is why the farmer gets rich quick and
lives in fine pallacea while of course the
merchant is doing a good legitmate

Beatrice Barlow Dierke' playing was
an important feature of the entertain
ment. There were four soloa: (a) Vari

characteristics of hose music are the

The solos were well chosen, differing
