K. O. lilnnchar said he had a septic
tank which was working perfectly,
aud iiei'sonally ho had no m od for a
sewer system, yet ho was anxious to
soe tho city build one, and stated that
he would cheerfully pay Ids proper
tion of the cost, w henever called upon.
He considered it high time Hie city
installed an adequate system.
V. C. lirook considered that the poo
pie should think uf the future; that
all should take ou the spirit, of public
enterprise and duty. He believed tin
citv shoud lav the foundation uf a
permanent sewer system, one adequate
for tbe needs of the future.
This oil v is nut a healllilul or san
itary condition with no -ewer sys
torn." said Mr. lirook. "If we can't
build all the svstoin at, one , let us
build part now and add to it iu the
futuro. We have lot, other cities
much smaller t han Hood Kiver out
strip us in enterprises of this kind,"
said the speaker, and ho t.uM uf the
splendid sewer system nceiilly in
stalled ill Wasco, a town Joss than
half the size of Hood liivei.
Mr. liioo.k Hived all lo put tlieii
shoulders to the wheel in one united
effort for the public good: to rid
themselves nl personal prejudices
to be broad minded in public matters.
"We need a sewer i v.-tein." said S,
K. Ilartmoss. "1 have a gund ce-spucd,
aud could do without a sower system
myself, but 1 am willing to pay my
share of the expense uf constructing
tho system. Thu only question in the
matter in' mv mind is the manner nl
making the ns-cssmoiil. and to mi
direct tax per lot appears tho only
(xpiitablo way. It a man has ton many
lots, let him sell t art ol them.
Councilman Kaily believed the city
should bund for the outfall, and build
the rest of the system by a direct as
sessment on the lots. '1 he cliarter
covered all these points, said ho.
J. II. Hilihiird believed tho mitt t
of direct assessment, should bo left to
the citv council. The people on tin
hill, said ho. wore willing to help pay
for the main outfall, but as the soil
ou tho bill makes it much cheaper to
build branch systems there, the prop
erty holders did not consider it, fair
and equal that they should be taxed
for the expensive work iu the lower
part of the town. They would object
to the l7.fq assessment per lot tut
the whole system.
General Outlook for Apple ( rop.
The Fruitiona's duide, duly '-.,
gave an interesting illustration of two
ways of lnnkiug at a thing. It run
tained a large number of repoits from
both apple buyeis and apple raisers
as to tbe crop soon to be gathered.
One buyer wonders where an nutlet
is to bo found for the surplus, and
the others are unanimous in declar
ing that .there are plenty of apples and
that buyers stand to lose heavily un
less they buy at low Itgures. V hen it
comes to the growers it is another
story. In the Hudson river valley
the crop is reported as nne third; for
Western New York the e.-limates vary
from 2il to Ikl per Cent of an average
crop, the greater number putt ing their
estimate between ,'H and Id per cent.
In New England there is much dis-
crepnncy in report. The Illinois
crop, reported large by buyers, is
placed by a grower at half the usual
amount. l' Wellhouse report that
eastern Kansas will have from one
fourth to one-third of a crop, while
western Kansas and some counties In
central Kansas will have a full crop.
The Michigan crop is placed at 40 to
On per cent. In Oklahoma about &U
per cent of the usual yield Is expect
ed. Nova Scotia reports prospects for
le.-s than halt a crop. The reports
from Ontario indicate about half a
crop for that province. The Vajaro
Valley, California, expects a large
crop.
JURYHNDS IT
WAS A SUICIDE
That Albert McKamey of Mount
Hood came to his death by a gunshot
wound inflicted by his own hand is
the verdict of the coroner's jury
which inquired into tbe case last
Thursday. On the arrival of Coroner
Iturget. and the jury at the scene of
the suicide, the party was at first dis
posed to beileve McKamey had met
with foul play. Dr. Shaw was sent
for aud made an examination of the
wound and the course of the bullet,
which proved beyond doubt that the
wound could tmve beeu inflicted only
by bis own hand.
Mrs. McKamey testified that she
heard a smothered sound as of some
one groaning and then a shot about
l'i :,!0 o clock. She at once lighted a
lamp and hurried to her husband's
room. She found him with the gun
in his grasp. She called to him sev
eral times, and getting no reply,
sought to take the pistol from his
grip, but it was held too firmly. Mrs.
McKamey then hurriedly gathered
some wraps for the children and left
r a neighbor s home. Mrs. Mo-
Knmey said she found the door tin-
icked, and was certain she had
lactlied it tho night before, because,
Mr. McKamey was always auixous
that the house should be securely
.icked. Her husband she said dreamed
it few days before of seeing a cotf in
and a grave, and often spoke ol tear
ing someone would kill him.
Hubert McKamey, brother of the
Icoased, stated he was not surprised
at, the action of his brothor, as he
had frequently complained of the fear
that someone would kill him, and for
this reason often had his brothers re
main over night at bis home.
.Mrs. McKamey testified that ber
husband slept with a revolver under
his pillow. In bis bed was also found
a viul uf strychnine. The body gave
no indication that he had swallowed
any of the poisou. The revolver
winch bad fallen from tne baud of tne
suicide was his own, and there was
but, one chamber discharged.
lhe bullet entered the head close to I
.7 i
tbe top; ranged upward and then
glanced down. Funeral services were
conducted Tuesday, under the au
spices of the local lodge of Odd
Follows, of which deceased was a
member.
The jury empanelled by Coroner
liurgot found as follows:
"That bis name was Albert Gal
braith McKamey ; that he was about
Hi years nf ago, and that he came to
his death about the hour of 4:40
o'clock on tho morning of tho 16th
of August, at his ranch near Mount
Hood post olllce; we further find that
the cause of his death was from a
giingshot wound inflicted by bis own
hand.

Dan MoDonell,
W. S. dribble,
C. S. Sneuoer,
H. H. Myers,

McKamey had two brothers, Henry
ami Kobrot, living iu Hood Kiver val
ley, and throe sisters in The Dalles
and vicintiy; Mrs. X. Morgan, Mrs.
F. Obrist and Mrs. F. Creightou.

GOLD RUN MINE
HAS PAYING ORE
Ore aasaylug (173 tu gold, i silver,
load aud copper has been taken from
the Uold nun mine ou the head
waters of the Washougnl, and S. II.
Cox of this city, who is interested iu
the claims, is so contldoiit there is a
fortune in tbe mine that ho is willing
to trade a tft',1500 farm in Hood Kiver
valley for stock in the dold liun com
pany. Mr. Cox returned last wees irom
Portland, where ho had taken sumo
samples of ore gathered last Monday
from tho dump of the shaft now being
sunk at the mine by Kph Winaiis ami
his men. This ore went $.14. ill m tho
four metals to the ton. Mr. Cox says
is perhaps about tho average value
of the ore. The ore Is well mineral
ized, and with tbe combination of
gold, silver, load aud coppo", mining
experts say it indicates a rich deposit.
The fact that a tit. Louis company
is spending a large amount of money
spend in
develop
in
ing a ledge just above tho
Uold Hun mine would go to con'lrm
the belief that this region will soon
be a money making proposition. The
Gold Knn Mining Co. has contracted
for a oO-foot tunnel. When this is
completed cross cuts will be made ami
more tunneling done as funds permit,
ray Your SI for a Hunter's License.
Hotter take out a license if you ex
pect to do any bunting this year,
(lame Warden Fritz, who was iu this
city last week, says he intends to see
that tho law Is enforced. About
li (lenses have beeu issuod by tho
county clerk, aud many of the farmers
in tne Interior part ot tho county aro
demanding that hunters show their
license card before they are prenut ted
to hunt ou the premises.
The new law requires every uouy
who desires to hunt to have a license,
unless the person is hunting on bis
own laud or laud belonging to his
family, in this case tho law does not
apply. The license fee is one dollar
for relsdents and ?10 for nonresi
dents. The clerk is compelled to for
ward all the money collected at least
ouoe every three mouths to the state
treasurer. The money from licenses
and fines so collected will go into a
fund called tho game protection fund
which will be used for the protection
of game and fish. The flue for the
violation of any of the provisions of
the game law is not less than $'2.i nor
more than 100.
Teaching Lessons to Fruit (Jrowers.
Oregouian.
Fruit Inspector James If. lioid
taught a practical lesson to Oregon
orchardista the other day. Ilo put a
few minutes' labor on soiu? good ap
ples, badly boxed, marketable at oi)
cents, and sold them within an hour
for $1.25 a box. So much for planed
boards, soft paper and symmetrical
arrangement. Manufacturers don't
put si.perior goods in inferior pack
ages. The buyer judges contents by
the appearance of the exterior. Ho
doesn't look for good fruit thrown
loosely in a rough ill made box. This
is a case where 10 cents worth of ma
terial aud labor brings an immediate
return of 500 per cent. Mr. lioid ut
tered a valuable truth when he said
to orchard ists: "It will pay in tho
end to keep your scabby, misshapen
fruit for hog feed. "
