be paid, provided the stockmen's uulon

these pests will make up another dol

and bold in the eastern part of the
county that sheep men have sustained
heavy losses from their raids. On the

Publish the List.
HooD River, July 24, 1894. Editor
Glacier: . The pertinent questions
asked in last week's Glacier in regard
to the promised publication of the de
linquent tax list has called to mind the
anxiety of a number of citizens to learn
why hankers, capitalists and eminent
attorneys should be so favored as to be
allowed to go free, while other tax
payers are made to pay up. I am con
fident that a published list of these
favored few will surprise quite a num
ber and ho doubt explain why our
county is In debt and taxes still rolling
up. The list would not only be for one
year, but for two and three years they
have enjoyed these favors, while other
taxpayers, not possessed of a "pull,"
are paying 8 per cent on these delin
quents. Some of our officials think
they have been of untold benefit to the'
county when' they have succeeded in
cutting down road supervisors' time or
knocking two bits off some laborer's
wages, but these wealthy scions must
not be published. It is a deplorable
state of affairs when we can not have
officers with backbone enough to do
their duty, regardless of the dictations
of the bosses. 1 Two or "three ; years
without paying their taxes, with no In
terest and very small penalty, if any,
: is how they settle with Wasco county.
Such favoritism is what makes so many
populists; it is not always bad crops, as
many suppose. ; . X.

The visit to Belmont M. E. parson
age by the ladies' aid society on Tues
day was a very pleasant and profitable
occasion for the pastor's family. Thanks
are not sufficient; may the Lord be the
rewarder. So says pastor,
, F. L. Johns,
General Harrison a Candidate.
' Washington Correspondence Republic
The alleged Interview with General
Harrison a few days ago, in which he
was reported to have declined In ad
vance a renomination for the presi
dency, was received here with a very
, large allowance of salt. Those who are
nearest to General Harrison and under
stand the workings of a Is mind paid
no heed to his reported declination, for ,
the simple reason that they knew bet
ter. General Hurrlson is a candidate
iu much the suiue way that Mr. Cleve
land was a candidate iu 1892. He will
do everything that he can in a dignified
W4V to men re the nomination, but will
not enter into an open and undignified
scramble, and if the chances of bin de
feat are dangerous a timely letter de
clining to be a candidate will be pro
duced. There are some queer stories
whispered here in select circles, one of
them Is that Harrison ' is desirous of
serving a term as secretary of state. . A
friend of Harrison's, while in a confi
dential mood, told me a few days ago
that if the ex-president could not see
the way clear to being nominated with
out a difficult struggle, he would throw
his support to Allison and take the
secretaryship of state in Allison's cabl
net. It is known here that nothing
riled Harrison so much when be was
preside ut as the insinuations from time
to time that Blaine controlled absolute
ly the foreign policy of the Harrison
administration and that the president
himself bad nothing at all to do with
It. Harrison insists that the foreign
policy of his former aduiinstratlon was
entirely his, and that Blaine was as
much uuder his direction while he re
mained in the cabinet as Uncle Jerry
Rusk or Partner Miller. The report of
Harrison's partiality for Allison may
bring forth Interesting complications.
Reed hates Harrisou. ' McKlnley has
no love for Harrison. But would Reed
and McKlnley prefer the nomination
of Allison to Harrison next year? Al
lison is a smooth, plausible fellow and
If elected in 1896 would dead certain be
a candidate for re-election in 1900.

Ordinance No. 12, relating to pro
tection against fires, was considered
and passed. '.
Geo. T. Pralher having failed to
qualify as superintendent of streets, the
mayor appointed J. H. Dukes for the
position. ,', ,
The report ot the recorder called for
a general discussion in regard to the
wilful violation of ordinances by using
explosives on the 4th of July. , In re
sponse to a question the mayor stated
that no permission was given to shoot
on that day, except on the beach and
the outskirts of , the town,, and no
application had been made for snooting
elsewhere. The council then adopted
the following resolution: : "Resolved,
That the common council will support
its officers in the enforcement of
their duties under the ordinances of
the town, and that acts of defiance
against the authority of such officers
should be condemned by the sentiment
of all law abiding citizens.''
The committee ou streets and pub
lic property was authorized to
lease a piece of ground and to con
struct a suitable fence about it to be
used for a pound. Adjourned.
4 A Perilous Situation. V
The families of M. N. Foley and J.C.
Markley went to Sandy Flat, last week,
to camp and fish. Mr, Foley, wnile
fishing, got parted from the others of
the party and followed down the river
till he came to where the bluffs started
from the water's edge. Not wishing to
go back on his trail, he thought he
would climb the bluff, which in some
places was nearly perpendicular. Be
fore starting up he cut a wedge of hard
wood with which to pry out small
pieces of the stratified rock to gain a
hold for his feet. ' He worked his way
up a hundred feet or more, till near the
top a ridge of moss-covered rock seemed
to defy his further progress, and he
found himself in a perilous situation.
It was out of the question, he thought,
to descend, and bis Only hope of get
ting out of there alive was to go ahead.
The afternoon sun had heated the
rocks and its burning rays made his
situation still more uncomfortable. He
tried to get off his shoes, thinking he
could better scale the wall of rock bare
footed, but failed. He then tossed his
fish-pole to the top, so that it could be
found if he failed to reach there him
self, and after a desperate effort, man
aged to reach the top of the bluff. Had
he fallen, nothing could have saved
him from being killed and tossed into
the river below. After his escape he
found himself so weak that it was some
time before he could proceed to camp.
Two days after, while sitting in camp,
he was taken with a fit of coughing,
which was followed by spitting blood.
Next day he came home and had an
other hemorrhage, but his doctor tells
him he will get along all right if he
takes care of himself.

' The Lecture Course.
The ladies' aid society of the U. B.
church has arranged a lecture course of
which Hood River may well be proud.
They have the promise now of some of
the best talent in the state, and it is
hoped that some efficient help may yet
be obtained from ' some of our sister
states or from the East. . -.
The first lecture ; will be given Aug.
2d, by Dr. Chapman, president of the
Oregon State University. , His subject
is, Sliakspeare's "King Lear.V ;. i ..'""'
September 6th, I. D. Driver will give a
lecture on "Bob Icgersoll and the Devil
Combined." This promises every one
a good laugh, and we need them occa
sionally. . " '.' .'
September 28th, a "bird concert" will
be given by home talent, with some
assistance from abroad. . Miss Olive
Hartley will conduct a "Good-Night
drill," which promises to be an inter
esting feature of the evening. .
October 4th, Bishop Mills will give
one of his earnest, thoughtful talks 011
some question of today in "Sociology."
Some time In November Miss Binnie
De Forest of University Park will
probably favor us with n dramatic read
ing. Miss De Forest is one of the best
Impersonators on the coast and will
give us a pleasant evening. :
For December, we hope to have
Stanford University Mandolin Club, or
Glee Club, or a combination of the two.
Several other names are on the list,
and it is possible we may yet have Dr.
Locke of the Taylor-etreet M.E.church,
Portland, and David Star Jordon, pres
ident of Stanford University. ,
The value of this lecture course does
not appear at first thought, but a fur
ther study will show it to be an in
clusive one, as it covers so many phases
of thought. Some of these evenings
must appeal to every thinking person
in our country, and the most of us can
enjoy thoroughly every evening. The
school children of the seventh and
eighth grades ought to be led to see the
vulue of such a course to them, and so
make an effort to hear every lectu re.
. A New Citizen.
Captain Henry Coe of Hood Rivet
came tip here Wednesduy to file a home
stead on 160 acres of land in section 3,
township 4 north of range 24, east.
The land lies on the Columbia river
opposite Castle Rock. Part of it over
flows annually and part of it is suitahli
for . fruit raising. Captain Coe wili
move to his homestead this full when
be expects to set out about ten acres of
strawberries. He will , use a steam
pump for raising water for irrigation
and later on a water wheel. The
water has to be raised about 20 feet.
The captain claims the place where
his homestead is located will produce
earlier berries than any other spot in
Oregon or Washington. His idea,
therefore, is to raise strawberries for
the early market and he expects to
have his crop marketed before the
famous Hood River berries begin to
ripen. The captain undoubtedly
kuows what he is talking about and
will make the berry venture a success
if anybody can. Klickitat Repub

AN OMINOUS BRIDGE.
A Spot at Which Sopontltlom Wedding
, Fnrtiea AU Tarn Buck.
A bridge which is carefully avoided
by wedding couples because of the
traditions which surround it spans a
stream called the goldbrook, in the
parish of Iloxne, near Eye, in the coun
ty of Suffolk, England. Standing in
the center of an open field at Hoxne is
an obelisk to the memory of Edmund,
king of the East Angles, who was
killed by the Danes in 870.. On the site
of the monument stood an oak tree, In
the branches of which the king took
refuge from his foes. At nightfall he
emerged from his leafy hiding place
and secreted himself under the above
mentioned bridge. A wedding party
passing over the bridge at night ob
served the king's gold spurs glittering
in the moonlight, and in this, way ho
was betrayed to his enemies, who took
him back to the oak tree and shot him
with arrows. Local tradition has it
that many years ago the existing in
scription of the event was followed by
tho words: "Cursed be the wedding
party that passes over this bridge."' No
such words are now visible, but the
tradition is so well known that bridal
parties prefer taking a circuitous route
rather than pass over Goldbrook bridge.
