While i Hunting.
The remains I of ; Themas Tucker,
of Portlanl. wlto was lost in a blind
ing snow storm in the Cascide moun
tain alwmt nin vear avo. were found
a few lavs since on tbe headwaters of
Rock crrek. in the southeastern por
tion of Xfarion eountv.
While Mr. Tucker, was hunting in
the Cascade" mountains ii the Santiam
district, he disappeared "d a long
search for brn was fruitfcyj. no trace
bemZ found of the unfortunate hunter.
Speculation was rife at the time, and
scores of theories were advanced as to
the cause of the man's disappearance.
nrn"jr his acquaintances being so
rncharitoble as to ugge$t that Tucker
nad dthberately left the country, rbev
er t-o return, these idle tongues , sug
gesting all manner of reasons for this
course on the part of the lost maiv
After an extended search for Mr. Tuck
er, in the mountain reg-kan where he
was la? known to have been, it wns
decided that he had perisrhed, and that
remains would probaljly it be found,
ur.less by chance. : Tlis hrjpe has at
last been realized, the- remain having
been discovered by a prospector, a fe
days ago. on the headwaters of Rock
Creek. The body was brought to the
nearest railroad station, and was sent
to Portland, on Wednesday, For inter
ment. AVhen the remains were found, identi
fication, was had by former acquaint
ances of the deceased, who recognize
the remnants of wearing apparai found
on the remains, and the accoutrements
had by the deceased when starting on
his iznt hunt nine years 3go. Deceased
was lost during a Winding s-now storm,
and it is probable that he froze to death.

was the sensation, and it he only one, of
the con-vent ion. The ami-Wilson
movement became apparent early yes

that Wilson could have nothing. Pierce,

made on Hopkints had been alo w'tge i
