Hallow E'en From Chomawn
Hallow E'n is Coming.
To-morrow night will be the occa
sion of much fun by both old and
young the world over. On that
evening, moro particularly in the
east than in the west, do the people
rejoice and be glad. It is then that
the ghost9 and spooks of generations
are supposed to walk the earth as do
humans and rejoice also in their
ghoulish uess when grave yards are
to give up their wonted calm and be
fdlcd with laugh and shout. Of all
nights in the year this is the one for
the fiends to do their work. The
small boys and their big brothers
would not sleep well if they had not,
assisted by their sisters-, changed
Smith's gate for that of Jones, upset
Brown's smokehouse, wheeled Ap
plejack's wagon onto Billberry's
front poarch, huug a saloon sign
over the "NV. C. T. U. door and vice
versa. "Verily it is a night for
pranks and on Thursday morning
many a town in the central states
I will have a forlorn and dilapidated
I appearance as though a cyclone
had passed over it.
Tbe Itlter is Ones .Now.
Yesterday evening at half-past six
o'clock the coarse whistle of a river
steamer informed Salem that navi
gation was open. The reverberations
gladdened many a shippers heart,
for they knew that with an open
river their products would soon
reach a lively market. The first
steamer to.arrive was the Occident,
of the O. E. & N. Co. She draws
twenty-two inches of water and re
ports n deep enough channel for
vessels of much heavier draft. The
trip from Portland consumed twelve
hours in all, but had they not had
to wait at tho locks for two other
boats to pass through they would
have been hero much sooner. After
taking on freight hero she at once
left for Albany and the upper river,
where a partial cargo will be taken
on. Tho captain said that If all
went well he expected to reach
Salem this evening on the return
trip. Tho boat will have her cargo
completed here, which will consist
of bran and wheat.
The Outlook Fatorable.
Hon. C. W. Fulton, one of tho
three presidential electors who will
cast tho electoral vote of Oregon for
Harrison and Morton next January,
has returned to Astoria from a com
plete cauvass of the entire state.
Mr. Fulton reports results fully
equalling his most sanguine expec
tations. Everywhere; he spoke he
found large audiences, and lie be
lieves that the republican majority
on Tuesday week will even exceed
the great majority in the June elec
tion, says tho Astorian.
I'l'ogms at CUemawa.
Stephen E. Leo of Chemawa was
at Seattle last week securing stu
dents for tho Salem Indian In
dustrial school. Ho sent six bright
boys off on the Saturday morning
train. Mr. Lee says the children
earned $1400 this year picking hops.
Last year they earned $1500, and
bought for the United States eighty
three acres of land, the first instance
on record of that kind. More Indian
boys and girls will be sent from day
to day till tho school is filled.
The Bldi are Opened.
The bids for tho completion of
two rooms at the state house were
opened this afternoon, and were as
follews: Rogers and Southwick,
S5G9.50; J. Benolt, $061.77;
Craven, $501.65; John Athey, $511.50.
The award of contract will not be
mude before noxt week. These
rooms aro to bo completed by tho
time tho legislature convenes, and
will perhaps bo used as committee
One Week from TonUj.
Only one week from to-day and
these glorious United States will be
agitated by a presidential election.
Campaigning in some places is ruu
uing fust and furious, but wo here
in Orogon aro taking things easy
and unconcernedly. The democrats
aro resigned to their fate, the pro
hibitionists hopeful, and tho repub
licansjubilant. The Corrallli Still Here.
The government snag pullor Cor
vallls is still moored at the wharf In
this city undergoing some minor
repairs preparatory to makiuga start
up the river. She reported thirty
inches behind her as site oame up,
aud it is practicable for light draft
lU to make the trip now.
Smallpox Golng'tr Gone.
The young man, Mulligan, who
had an attack of varioloid in Salem,
has entirely recovered, and the
other man who was thought to
have taken it from him is all right.
For several days It was thought It
would result In a caso of genuine
smallpox, but fortunately it proved
to be but varioloid, and ho will
soon be all right, as all danger is
passed, and he is rapidly convales
cing. Miss Baker, who! has been down
with smallpox at the place of F. X.
Matthleu, at Buttevllle, is reported
out of dancer, aud no now pjisp.
have broken out in that neighbor
hood. Advices from Clinmnoeg are to
tho effect that two well developed
cases ot trie disease have been re
ported near there. One is a China
man camping with a partv of crab
bers, the other is an aged French
man, who has been wandering
around the neighborhood, and who
spent a night just previous to his
being taken down, in a building oc
cupied by a crew of twenty men
who were running a hay baler on
the place of J. N. Harding.
At McMInnvllle there aro no
moro cases, the quarantines raised,
schools opened and business nice
more moving on as before.
