A Bad Runaway.
This morningabout eleven o'clock,
those that were in the vicinity of
Ford's livery stable, witnessed quite
u lively runaway. Tlio Dallas stage
had deposited the mall at the post-
ofllce and the driver, Alonzo Brown,
then started todrivc to Ford's Livery
stable, where he nuts his team at
noon. As lie was nearlng the stable,
the switch engine came along, and
frightened the team. They started
up Ferry street at a lively rate, and
the bridle bits broke, which made
the driver powerless to hold them in
check. They ran into the wood
yard back of the stable, throwing
Mr. Brown out of the hack and
bruising him up considerably. He
received a very painful bruise on the
forehead ; the stage was badly de
moralized, but the horses escaped
unhurt. Mr. Brown is a very care
ful driver, and had tho bridle not
broken ho would have stopped tho
Ed. JounNAii : Recent events
have caused the citizens to look
around to tho city laws, and And
out, in fuct, whether wo have any.
In our present condition anything
can bo presented as city law. Com
mon consent or custom is not gen
erally good law. Evidently our
law, if wo have any, is worthy of
being trotted out and exhibited to
tho people who aro expected to obey
it to make expense from time to
time without any probability of en
forcing any law, and getting tho
officers into trouble. Tho Haas
bridge case, and thoalley ditchnorth
of court house aro samples. It is
not profitable. Inquireu.
Five Prisoners
in the
Coino to Servo Terms
The sheriff of Clatsop county ar
rived in the city this morning, bring
ing with him five prisoners who
had been found guilty and sentenced
to terms in tho stato institution,
They were as follews: Ned Her
vin three years, convicted of rob-
Charles Dahl, three years, for
William Johnson, two years, for
larceny from a store.
J. Malin, three years for robbery.
N. T. Livingston, ten years, for
attempt to committ rape.
Livingstone is a professional
school teacher, but a natural fiend,
as tho crime was committed against
a Miss Cab.111, a little elght-yeai old
girl under his care, and was per
formed under circumstances of such
brutality as make one shudder at
tho very possibility of the existence
of such monsters. The prisoner
was arrested last winter, Mr. Cauill
having walked three days through
mud and rain to reach a justice of
the peace before whom he might
swear complaint. The arrest of the
inhuman monster followed quickly,
and his trial resulted in tho speedy
conviction and a sentence for ten
years of penal servitude.

I. V. Williams, of Philadelphia is
an old man and a very rich one. He
has no wife, no children. Ho has
rightly decided to devote a consider
able portion of his great wealth to
public use, and lie has wisely de
cided to do it now, in his lifetime,
instead of putting it oft until his
death. He has selected seven, friends
of his, solid citizens like himself, as
the trustees of his bounty. Ho has
explained to them, according to the
newspaper report, that he wishes to
found and endow a great school in
which boys may learn tho useful
mechanical trades, free of cost; that
he has had tho project in his mind
for thirty years past; that ho js
ready to put five millions of dollars
into its execution, and more if more
