'Kood Jiver Slacier. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1S95. The Moro Observer of last week Wrote up our representative, Thos. R. t1oon, after the ""Oregon ""style" of thirty years ago. We can inform Bro. Ireland that Mr. Coon is one of Hood River's most respected citizens. His abilities and integrity are not ques tioned by those who know him. J Though some of us think he is not voting on t he senatorial question just as we might vote if we were in his place, we can respect the man for vot . ing according to his convictions. His old neighbors know that when Mr. Coon votes against Dolph, or upon any question in the legislature, he has given the subject t borough consideration and does his Uuiy as be sees it.

Hood, Or.,- Feb. 8, 1893. Editor Glacier: As your correspondent has seemingly sunk Into oblivion, I will, with your permission, contribute a few lines to your justly popular sheet. The winter has been unusually fine, which permitted several social ! hops. The pleasantest one of the season was given on Thursday evening, the 7th inst., in ljonor of John Fredenburg's (alias "our Johnnie's") 23d birthday; The even ing being fine, the ball was attended by the 400 and the lesser lights for miles around. The music waa dished up in good style, the instruments com prising a dolefuf organ, two violins, a male fiddle and a mouth organ. The music npt chording well, and the saw mill being close at hand, the proprietor started the saw a running two weeks ago). Lunch was served at midnight, furnished after ye olden style of every one bringing their own "hand out." The dance broke up at 5 a. m., after the participants had had a most enjoyable time, The music was furnished by Messrs. Leasure and Gribbles. ' " The snow is about eight inches deep; the Rhoades is passable; the Cooper is pursuing the even tenor of his occupa tion, with good prospects of .work in the future. Francisco is back at his old haunts again, after his ineffectual attempt to get in the calaboose. And by the way, Judge Dimmick Is quite well again. Matt Fredenb'urg had a log roll on him, causing a severe sprained ankle. , . George Booth, while attending the dance on the 7th inst., was taken with a severe attack of cramp colic. He -was taken to the residence of "Uncle Dave" Cooper, where, with prompt action, the pain was speediry reduced. More anon. T. Cumseh. ' Tho Storm in the East. The storm that raged all over the United States last Friday done more damage to life and property than any other for the last fifty years, not even excepting thetormjof March, 1888.' It spread over four times as much terri tory,, and' there came with it an extra ordinary accompaniment of death and wreck and fire. It shut off travel ' in all directions and paralyzed railway .traffic in nearly every city in the East, North, South and West. There is no doubt that the accurate forecasts of the weather bureau prevent ed a great amount of additional loss. The damage wrought by the ele ments is almost incalculable. The ther mometer ranged in the middle Atlantic states from 2 degrees above zero to 20 below. Growing crops in the South and the fruit crops of the North ' have everywhere been damaged. In many .sections the mercury drop ped to a' lower' point than hag been noted in a decade.. The following are sample readings covering various sec tions of the country. ' Moberly, Mo., 24 below zero. n " . Urbana, 111., 27 below zero. Burlington, Io., 28 below zero. Helena, Ark., zero. - : Lexington, Ky., 14 below zero. Belton, Tex ., 2 above zero. ". .

C, 12 above zero. - ( Tampa, Fla., 15 above zero. Three children are reported frozen to death on their way from school in the Cherokee Strip. ..Cattle and horses per ished. . . .. The Hudson river, which is three and one-half' miles wide at Nyack, N. Y., was frozen over. A young man was found in the middle ot the river terribly frozen. . . i ' The first snow storm on record visit ed Tampa, Fla. Although the warm est spot in the United States, orange and fruit trees were killed outright, causing a loss of : millions of dollars. There will probably be no Florida strawberries this year. The Kansas board of railroad com missioners have ordered 121 cars of coal shipped to sufferers in Western Kansas. ' Mrs. Richard Mays, two grown daughters, a 10-year-old girl and 6-year-old son, were forced to walk a quarter of a mile barefooted and in their night clothes to secure shelter, -their residence near Kirksville, Mo., having burned during the absence ot Mr. Mays. Their feet and noddies were badly frozen and some may die. ... The yells of panthers and bears in East Tennessee mountains are hideous, as a result of the intense cold. ' At Chattanooga they raided a smokehouse and devoured some hogs. The thermometer registered 12 above zero at Charleston, S. C, breaking all February records. Strawberries and much vegetation was killed. Wilmington, N. C, experianced the coldest weather in 24 . years, 10 above zero, with the wind blowing 46 miles an hour. The thermometer in West Virginia mountains ranged from 14 to 20 below and trains were delayed. Digest of Lund Decision. Furnished by W. D. Harlan, Land Attorney, Washing., in, D. C A rettler who has established his residence in good faith does not, forfeit his rights thereunder by a temporary absence in the discharges of official duties, nor is the right of transmuta tion during sucli absence anected thereby. ' , . The rule that recognizes 6fficlal duty as an excuse for temporary absence is equally applicable whether the duty is imposed by the appointing power or by election. The presumption as to the mineral or agricultural character of tract, created by the return of tho surveyor geueral, does not preclude the assertion of any right, or the proof of the tacts as they really exist. ' ,. ' Ass'r Sec' y Sims. ' A Case for the Courts, , Mrs.' Oiler recently fenced 'up the road on her land near the Hood river bridge, and had a gate put in leading to the cord wood and, posts piled on the river bank below the bridge. Be fore, the present county -bridge was b'hilt, The Dalles and Sandy wagon road crossed this strip of. land to the old ford of the river. Mrs. Oiler claims that this part of the road was vacated by the county court when the new bridge was built aud the road changed. Others claim that it was vacated ex cept a strip 80 feet wide running from the present road to the ri,ver just below the bridge. . During the terms of Capt. Dukes aud Geo. T. Prather as road su pervisor the road was closed at the same place, and they received writteu orders from the county court to open it and keep it open. Wednesday, M. F. Sloper, the present supervisor, went to the scene of the reported obstruction of the road. " We are informed he found no obstruction, and decided to hear from the court before taking further action; - Mrs. Oiler informed the su pervisor she would stand a lawsuit be fore she would surrender what she con sidered Jier rights in the premises. i Don't Stop Tobacco. The tobacco habit grows on a man until his nervous system is seriously af fected, impairing health, comfort and happiness.

Ex-Governor Pattison. of Pennsyl vania, who is the democratic and . re form candidate for mayor "of Philadel phia, has issued an address to the elec tors of that city. He outlines his policy j of municipal government in case of his election. - The detailsf that policy are not of interest outside of Philadelphia, but the figures he uses to prove the cor ruption and -1 extravagance . which have characterized Philadelphia gov ernment are astounding and ; will at tract attention everywhere. ,- In 1887 the expense of conducting municipal government in Philadelphia was $17,638,304. ':.T his expense had in creased in 1894 to the colossal figure of $32,190,000. In other words, while the population of the city has not increased in the seven years included in the com parison more than 20 per cent,, and while few new streets have been made, few new public institutions established, the expense of running the city has in creased almost 100 per cent. '. These figures show a' more startling condition of affairs in Philadelphia than ever existed in New York in the worst Tweed and Tammany days. New York corrupt ionists were demo crats. Philadelphia corruption ists have been and are . republicans. In New Yorkjihe democrats voted for and elected a republican candidate for may or to destroy a , democratic ring. , In Philadelphia the republicans now have an opportunity of voting for adempcrat to destroy a republican ring. The country will watch with consid erable interest the returns of the Phila delphia election, held on Feb. 19th, which will afford an opportunity for the comparison of the ability of demo crats and republicans to "rise , above party." St. Louis Republic. ; ;Mr. Emil Schanno has just returned from Portlaud where he has been at tending the meeting of the state ftoard of horticulture. He was highly pleased with his visit and says that the only counties that had any fruit exhibit worth mentioning were Wasco .and Union, and that the former, owing largely to the interest that Hood River took in the matter and her contribu tions, was the better. Mr. Schanno is an active member of the board, and in sists that the money now appropriated for the use of the board is sufl1cie.it. He says with considerable foresigllt, that if the money set apart for the hor ticultural board is increased in amount, the office will become a political one for the reward of ' political , workers, and will . be filled by persons who know nb more about fruit than the railroad commiss'ioners do about rail roads, and who will be after the place simply for the money in it. . As it is the money would tempt no one, and consequently only some person interest ed in the business would accept the place. Chronicle. . The grand jury Wednesday returned not a true bill in the case of tje State against Broadbent. As his wife re fused to appear against him, under the peculiar laws of the state, the prosecu tion had to be dropped. Before dis charging the prisoner Judge Bradshaw gave him quite a lecture which, if heed ed, will be a lasting bene ti it to the de fendant. Among other things he call ed his attention to the fact that wifely forbearance under certain , conditions ceased to be a virtue, and warned him against again being forced to rely on it for his liberty. Circuit court met Monday, morning and the following gentlemen were se lected to serve as a grand jury: John Marden, Chas. Fraley, M. Selli'ck, E.A. Griffiln, W. F. Norval, Amos Root and W. J. Davidson. The court appointed Mr. Marden foreman. J. Doherty and James Harper were appointed court bailiffs and J. Blakeney, sr., grand jury bailiff.
