Then upon searching his room Marshal Whorton found in a vest belonging to Oglesby, w raped in a clipping from The Ex aminer (the article of the previous week regarding the "llold, ISad Uoad Agent") the sum of 'JO cents in postage stamps. When confronted with this evidence by Whorton, the accused began .to weaken, and finally told the ollicer where to find a part of the mail that was taken. The sheriff and marshal accompanied by C. A. llrahch went to the place indicated by Oglesby, on the mountain, to the left of the road traveling north, and just north of Mr. liianrh's wood camp, and after a prolonged search failed to dis cover the hidden mail. After re turning to town, and a second interview with Oglesby, the two ollicer started again next day, mid went to the spot at once, theie discovering the mail secreted under a log in a thicket of brush 100 yards from the main road. The mail found was mostly comprised of letters and puckage from Silver Lake, and was at once turned over to Postmaster Wil cox. On Sunduy following the officers again interviewed Oglesby and told hint they were going to make a search for the mail, (the missing mail from Paisley and asked him for instructions where to make the search. The prisoner inform- ed them that it would le no use to make weakness, and to have a wholesome dread of vengeance if they surrender. The proclamation is approved by the party at home that favors concilatory terms to the Boers as a step in the right direction. Queen Victoria, it is said, has approved the proposal to institute a new order of Knighthood, to reward offi cers who have served in South Africa. On the 20th ult. the Boers iu consider able numbers, it is said, were making a movement westward. They had 150 wagons. It is believed they were trek king to Damaralund, although the Boers themselves denied any such intention. leWct Muy (Surrender.

United States Marshal George Hum phrey arrived from Portland last Tues day, and the prisoner was turned over to him. In company with Marshal Whorton, Humphrey started with his prisoner for Portland yesterday morning.

Cannon Hall Filled With Happy Peo ple Who Listen to Appropriate Exercises by Children. Pine Creek probably had the most in teresting time of any of iu neighboring communities. The Christmas tree was in the Cannon Hall on Christmas eve. The crowd 'oegsn to gather quite early, and by 7 o'clock the building was packed and all seemed anxious for the exercises to begin. There was hardly standing room so great was the crowd, but much credit is due them for the good order which prevailed, not only during the ex ercises, but, while the presents were being distributed. When we think of the program being tw o hours in length and another two hours for the tree, while the larger ptrt of the crowd waa standing we feel very thankful for the excellent order. It has never been our pleasure to witness such good order at such a place before. At 7 o'clock the house was called to order, and the exercises opened with a song by the choir, followed by prayer by Kev. Foster. The program which fol lowed w as, to say the least, excellent pnd the Committee cn Program surely is deserving of much credit. Most of the program was given by the Kelley i Creek school, with Mr. Dexter Amick as teacher. It was one of the best, con sisting of song, dialogues and recita tions. Every part was well acted, and, while there are some w ho deserve special mention, it would be doing others an tnjutice since all acted their respective parts so well. Several of the dialogues met with loud applause, but when "The Lost Dog" was played it took so well that it was ?Hke.l to be p!ve i over, and waa even more laughable the second time. The "Chinaman" as personated by Jay I'ammersley was very good. Following is the program : MOOR. Song, Woudrou Story by the Choir "ryer Kev.
