"Why, I romembor thid article when
'it was flint published," remarked
John Michell an he picked up a copy
of the Glacier last Thureday and
glanced at the clipping from the Can
yon City Kagle, containing a story
of one of the early Oregon newspapers
published 40 years ago, and edited by
Jbaquin Miller.
Michell used to sot Joaquin Miller's
manuscript when that ecoentrio man
of fame was the Canyon City corre
spondent for The Dalles Mountaineer.
W. II. Newell was then editor of the
Mountaineer, that pioneer of Eastern
Oregon journalism which went to the
boneyard last summer, and John says
the contributions of the old poet be
came so coarse that Editor Newoll was
forced to dispense with Joaquin's ser
vices as contributor.
"I was sorry to see the old Mount
aineer close down," remarked Mr.
Michell. "That paper had many able
w iters as its editors in the days gone
by. Many of the men have since at
tained literary fame. Among those
who at one time furnished copy for
the Mountaineer were M. Abrey Ang
low, later a literary character in Calif
ornia; Henry Miller, who afterward
was correspondent for the Alta Calif
ornia, the pioneer journal of the
Golden state. Miller died in Mexico,
where he went as a contributor to the
colums of the Alta. Lieutenant Hen
ry Catlin, one time recorder for the
city of The lalles, edited the Moun
taineer, as did W. H. Newell, another
abl) writer."
Jonh Michell was a compositor on
the Mountaineer when but a boy.
Typesetters in those days received 75
nmitu nnr thniiMAiid ems. This was
In 1865. Sixteen years later Michell
became proprietor of the paper, lie
disposed of the business about ten
years ago to John Douthit.
Michell was apprenticed as a com
positor at the ago of ten, and served

Rev. I. I). Driver, known by nearly
every one in Oregon, tells a good
story on himsolf. While he was a
luemlier of the Oregon legislature
some years ago, he was accosted at
the Wlamotte Hotel in Halem by a
man who was very much under the in
fluence of liquor. The man Insisted
upon heartily shaking hands with
Dr. Driver. "Why Dr. Driver, 1
knew you very well (hlo) for you con
verted me over i!H years ago." Mr.
Driver answered : "I thought It was
some of my work, for 1 was sure the
Lord had nothing to do with it."

Special to the Glacier,
Hood River, Or., May 31. Judge
Bradshaw has made an order discharge
Ing all of the jurymen called for the
May term of court subject to the cull
of the sheriff, and it is expected to
call them in and finish up the busi
ness of the term some time in June.
The postponement was made mainly
on account or tne Kies case, wnion
the defendants were not ready to try,
and the prosecution wanted to avoid
having the matter go over to the full
term of court.
The Norman Williams case Is now
pending on the petition of McGinn
for a rehearing in the supreme court.
Just how soon the supreme court will
take up and pass upon the petition is
not known.
Peonle here do not give much credit
to the "pipe dream" published last
week in a Portland paper concerning
depredations in the upper Hood Kivei
Far Prettier Than the Pictures.
"I've read about Hood Kiver and
seen a number of Hood River view
in the O. K. A N. literature, but after
driving out through the valley last
week with Mr. Smith, 1 at once wrote
home and told the folks there this
country was far prettier than the
pictures themselves. The pictures are
as pretty as you could find anywhere,
but this country is the prettiest i nave
ever seen," remarked, Laud R. Ruther
ford, a young man here from Minne
sota. Mr. Rutherford reached Spokane
last full, where bo bus since been as
sociated with Joseph S. Allen in the
real estate business. Mr. Allen is a
brother of the late John Allen, a for
mer senator of Washington. Mr.
Allen and Mr. Smith were old ac
quaintances. Mr. Rutherford has had a great
deal of experience In the real estate
business, but belieevs he would prefer
some business location In the went.
He Is particularly Impressed with
this oity and valley, and if he can se
cure a locution will settle here.
Should he do so, Mr. Allen of Spo
kane, his uncle, may also come to
Hood Kiver, us lie believes this city
to have the best future of any section
of the Northwest.
He May Hare Keen James Foss.
The Dulles Chronicle.
James Foss, who was murdered at
Mount Hood two weeks ago, left a
valuable farm in that neighborhood
and that his relatives (if he had any)
might be advised of his death and
come into their share of his possess
ions, Sheriff Sexton has communicated
with the sheriff of Caeldoulu county.
Minnesota, where Foss was known to
have resided. An uncle was found,
who directed them to correspond with
T. C. Flugum at Stoughton, Wiscon
sin, and In the answer received, the
brother says: "I had a brother that
dlssupeared entirely from Mlnuesota
some 25 years ago and there is a possi
bility that he may be the one. His
name was Jens Flugum and he should
now be a man between 47 and 50 years
old. As this happened when I was a
small hoy. I cannot give you auy par
ticulars about hi in except that he used
to live around Caldonlu, Minn., be
fore he delssapeared completely."
No doubt thia man is a brother of the
murdered man.
Dr. John McLaughlin's (Jrave.
Dr. John McLrughlln, who came to
Oregon in IH'21. was for many years
chief factor for the Hudson liay Co.
at fort Vancouver but died under the
'American flag at Oregon City in 1H57.
His body lies buried on the brink of
the bluff a short distance below the

churchyard In the ground he hud do
