MONDAY, AUGUST 20, 1888.
The sick baby of Mr. and Mrs. W.
Sklpworth that has been ho long
sick is no better.
Mrs. E. DePrans arrived from
Portland on Saturday, and Is stay
ing at Mrs. Rlely's.

Rack From California.
Mr. A. K. Wilson, who owns a
farm west of Salem hasjust returned
from a tour of many of the other
states. The last he visited was Cali
fornia. After all he prefers Oregon
for a home and will remain here un
less busiuess calls him to our sister
state on the south. But he com
plains of the heat and partial drouth
in some portions there. At Colusa
he experienced the hottest day of
his life. There will not be more
than half a crop owing to tho in
uflleiency of rain. Pie finds people
talking freely about Oregon, making
enquiries and starting to look for
themselves. He found the most of
these to be Kansas people. Two
were on the train intending to return
hero from Portland. On his way
west he conversed with others from
that state, at Salt Lake, whoassured
him they would soon meet him in
Salem as they intended to examine
the Willamette- valley. Evidently
the wide distribution of advertising
nutter is bearing fruit. Let the
goDd work go on.
i Arrestedlfor llnrderoas Assault.
Word comes from Silverton ubout
a case similar to that at Ballslon,
Polk county. In that case one Wil
liam Davis, owner of a threshing
machine, struck a white man
named Loyton Tindall over
the head with a club
in a fit of anger. At last accounts
the man was likely to recover. In
the second case, Charles Smith, near
Silverton, feafully struck a China
man, who was working with Smith's
thresher, on tho head with a pitch
fork handle. He was arrested and
was to have his preliminary trial
to-day. It is said that Smith's boy
ami the Chinaman got into alterca
tion and that tho latter called him a
liar with an oath, and the father
took it up. Ho will probably bo
brought to the county jail to-night.
Mrs. E. DePrans (of Portland)

McCully, who has tendered tho use
of her parlors, Mrs. DePrans will

Cressie, the seven-year-old son of
Austin Coombs, tookarevolverfrom

in the house, and while playing
with it accidentally discharged it,
the ball took eflect in his abdomen.
On his mother's return she ques

nothing of the injury to himself.
Having been forbidden to touch the
revolver he was chastised, standing

Toward noon ho began to feel sick,
and going to a side room lay down
upon the floor. Upon being called
shortly afterward to get some wood,
he replied that ho could not and that
he was sick. His mother going to
him, noticed for tho first time that
his clothes were saturated with
blood. After an examination she
surmised the truth, and upon close
questioning the boy admitted that
he had shot himself. This was not
until some three hours after the ac

I'ortlcml Mechanics' Fair.
The Capital Journal acknowl
edges receipt of complimentary tick
ets to tho Portland Mechanics' fair,
which will open on tho 4th and
cloe on tho 27th of October. The
management evidently understands
the use and the power of the press
for in its circular to editors, it says :
"The management will feel honor
ed by yournttendance, and will duly
appreciate any act on your part
tending to create an interest in the
fair, as an advancerof the industries
of the Pacific Northwest."
Doubtless, as in other years, Sa
lem and Marion county will furnish
many visitors and considerable ex
hibits. We shall have more to say
later. For tho present tho state fair
here, will claim our first attention.

When the four Congressmen on
Investigating Immigration affairs
met recently in New York, Paul
Wolff, the Washington correspond
ent of tho New York Staata-Zeltung,
submitted a printed report showing
that societies existed in Germany
and especially in Bavaria for the
purpose of sending discharged crimi
nals to tliis country. The reports
of one society showed twenty-soven
discharged convicts tent in 1883.
The report said that the worse the
men are and tho larger families they
have, the better fitted they are to be
sent. In 1S8G 15,000 morks were
expended by these societies, nearly
all of which was applied to assisting
tliis class of immigrants. Tho
societies givo the immigrants tickets
to any point in America they desire.
Tho Portland News, speaking of

says: "There wero some splendid

Salem is justly called the city of
churches. As families ore returning
from the seaside and mountain resorts
andfromother counties to bo ready
for tho publio and privato schools
and the university, tho pastors and
churches are preparing for a renewal
of earnest work in all departments.
Knowing that the annual Methodist
conference is approaching, a Jour
nal representative has obtained ft
brief epitome of the work done by
the M. E. church of this city. It
will be interesting reading to many
of its five hundred members and
their friends, and to numbers of our
eastern leaders. Some of whom
may advantageously show it to those
who yet ignorant ly "wonder wheth

Tliis church which Is about to
finish up another ecclesiastical year
has mado a stride for which she may
feel justly proud. The congrega
tions for the year have been unpre
cedeutly large, and collections good.
This week tho finances of the
churches will bo adjusted and a
fine showing will be made at the
conference which commences at
Eugene City next Thursday. Tho
church and parsonage have been re
paired at a cost of about $1,000,
nearly all of it paid. The collections
for benevolences are as follows :
From the church, 470.00 ; Wom
an's Foreign Missionary Society,
$55.00; Young Woman's Foreign
Missionary Society, ?S4.00 ; the
Woman's Home Missionary Society,
besides supplying the needs of many
poor among us, has quite a sum on
hand for assisting needy churches
near by. Next Sabbath will finish
tho present pastor's incumbency,
but the prospects are that the Jour
nal's prophecy relative to his re
turn will be fulfilled.
The Sells Brothers Hippodrome. Cirrus and
Among the exhibitions of the day,
there aro none that have received a
prominence so pronounced as that of
Sells Brothers ; nor aro wo able to
record an instance of any tented
exhibition giving more general satis
faction. Its every feature is remark
able, and the majority can well bo
chnmcterized as "phenomenal." As
an adroit, sensational and entirely
original act, that of riding and driv
ing twenty-three bareback horses,
by Mr. William O'Dell, will com
mend Itself to all lovers of tho diffi
cult and dashing in equestrianism.
Of Mr. Showlcs' elegant and artis
tic bareback riding, and of Mr. Wm.
Sells' "hurrlcano hurdle riding,"
wo have had occasion to speak in
former seasons, and further com
mendation is superfluous. So it is
with tho graceful, bareback riding
of Senorina Caronl. Of gymnastic
and athletic exploits by n largo com
pany of acrobats and athletes, there
is such a bewildering multiplicity
that comment is nonplussed, and to
speak of the merits of eacli in de
tail would transcend our limits. We
can not close this article, however,
without brief mention of tho cham
pion wing and fancy rifle shot of
the world, Captain A. II. Bognrdus,
"The Man Who Shoots to Kill,"
and his four remarkable sons, each
of whom exemplifies all the possi
bilities of the gun. The show will
exhibit here Tuesday, August 28th.
