Last Sunday morning the body of j

brought to tho coroner's rooms, and
the following verdict rondercd by tho
jury summoned for that purpose:
"We tho undersigned jurors sum
moned to appear before B. B. Frank
lin, coroner of the precinct of Astoria,
county and state aforesaid, at his
undertaking rooms in suid precinct,
on tho loth day of July 1883, to in
quire into the cause of the death of
said unknown man. Having been
duly sworn according to law, and
having made such inquisition after
inspecting the body and hearing the
testimony adduced, upon our oaths
each and all do say, that we are un
able to identify the deceased, that he
was dressed in dark gray pants, blue
overahirt, leather boots with two
straps and buckles on the top of boot
legs; deceased also had on his person
fifty dollar j in money two twenties
and one ten dollar piece, also a pocket
knife and a carpenter's lead pencil.
Wo are of the opinion that deceased
was a logger or woodsman of some
kind and that he came to his death
by drowning in the Columbia river.
Deceased was about five foot nine
inches, heavy set, and red or nearly
red hair, weight about one hundred
and ninety pounds, about thirty years
old and smooth face.
All of which we duly certify to by
this inquisition in writing by us
signed this loth day of July 18S3.

I don't think that any living man
ever heard of a beeswax wreck on
Vancouver Island. When 1 came
hero in 1843 1 made all inquires that
anyone could concerning that wreck
more on account of the great treasure
that the Indians suy was dcp-tsited
there by those people. It was at tho
mouth of the Isolialcm rhcr; thero
were thirty in number; that they had
tails on their heads. They were
white but not as white as we are. They
were made slaves of by the Indians.
When they came in from work they
would sit with their backs to the wall
to keep tho children from bothering
them. There was a blacksmith
amongst them; they would go to the
beach at rundown and cry, and toll
the Indians that ivas where they lived.
Thomas McKay went with a company
of Hudson bay mon to Xehaleni in
search of the great iron chest. There
are Indians here yet that know when
Thos. McKay went down. I saw him
in '49 in Cal., and asked him all about
it. There is one Indian at Xehalem
yet that says ho was a man grown
when Lewis and Clark came hero.
The Indians at that time lived where
tho Sea Side now st&nds and that
Lewis and Clark came there and
made salt. This wreck was so many
generations ago. that thu Indians have
no idea when, but the beeswax is there
to this day. They have a long story
about it and I think a pretty true one
but I am such a poor scribo that I

Col. J as. Taylor, who left here on
an eastern tour several mouths ago,
arrived homo last Sunday morning.
He had the best of health throughout
and enjoyed a very pleasant trip. He
went east from San Francisco over the

nia and Galveston, Texas, thence to
New Orleans, up tho Mississippi to
Cairo, Illinois, by rail to St. Louis;
and then due east to New York,
coming back he took a 1,200 mile trip
on the lakes, taking the cars at Du

Trip to Bear Creek.
On last Sunday morning the writer
was one of a party of eighteen per
sons, to board the swift little steamer
litlic for a pleasure trip to thi abovo ;
point. Tho party included several i
"slaves" of "the art preservative,"
whose only chance for rest or recren- j
tionison tho Sabbath day. After;
tho usual hurry and scramble and j
tugging of well filled lunch baskets, ;
and the various othor articles be-J
longing to such occasions, the little I
steamer backed gracefully out from i
the crowded dock and sped away up
the noble river. We saw and en-!
joyed the beautiful panorama of the ;
Columbia, which has challenged the
descriptive power of betterpens. The
rippling water, and invigorating-
breeze of the fresh morning, filled all
with pleasure and animation, and to
tho printer men was the rarest treat
for many a day. Our course up the
somewhat tortuous channel of the
lower part of Bear creek, was quite
successful until within a few hundred
y irds of Fisher's lauding, the head of
navigation. Thero the unfitness of
the Relic as a snag puller was conclu
sively proved by a broken propeller,
bent shaft, and distorted condition of
of the sheet irou and hitherto grace
fully proportioned craft. It being
impossible to land the party in tho im
penetrable thicket of brush and black
berry vines that overlapped either
bank of tho stream tho vessel was
poled to the landing, and run aground
for repairs at low tide. At this point
the party disembarked. There is
considerable open ground, and this
immediate vicinity, and farther up
the creek, possess attractions that are
unsurpassed, for pic-nic and camping
parties. Dry ground, delightful
shade, sunshine, natural bowers, game
for hook or gun, pure milk and pure
water; what little else is left to desire
can bo had. Mr. Fisher and 3Ir.
Kindred live near the lauding and
Miss Raj-mond is teacher of the small
but well conducted school. Mr.
Thompson has here a camp and at
this point he has landed most of tho
pipe for the first five miles of the line.
That gentleman extended to us the
hospitalities of his camp and by his
personal attention rendered our amplo
lunch, a feast. After lunch every one
enjoyed themselves as they pleased.
We went exploring up the creek and
along the line of the pipo that is to
conduct its waters to Astoria. Tho
fountains that feed tho stream are
pure; the bed of the stream is free
from moulding logs, leaves and do
bris, and over its rocky bed tho water
dashes in its downward course, there
by becoming thoroughly aerified.
Wo drank all we wished of the pure
cool water; one sparking glassful! con
tains a moro potent argument for
temperance than the sermons of a
hundred reformers when supplement
ed by the animated liquid which they
are often compelled to offer as a sub
stitute for water. Probably few per
sons have any idea of the difficulties
to be overcome in laying down this
lino of pipe. To begin with it ia diffi
cult to establish a line whero
every foot of a trail has to be
cleared with an uxe and the
slaughtered brush and vines more than
fills the track behind. In the email
portion of the lino wo inspected wo
saw where Mio dense thickets had been
cut through till tho ground was ex
posed and a deep ditch made in a
tingled mass of roots and logs filled in
with earth. It had to bo cut, picked,
sawed and scratched. Iu some cases
logs six or seven feet through had
been cut, other cases burrowed under.
From tho number of wasp's nests wo
saw suspended in alarming proximity
to the line, wo judged that an unusual
amount of discretion as well as
patience had been necessary to a suc
cessful prosecution of tho work. The
warning whistle was the signal for our
return to the landing. Tho party
was soon assembled and voted their
unqualified admiration fur tho skipper
who had been to the nearest machino
shop and by means of a maul and a
stick of cord wood had so far repaired
the broken propeller that our safe but
tardy rctnra home was assured. The
party having to go, as it were, on three
legs, arrived home rather late, but
everyone thoroughly enjoyed them
selves. All agreed that they had a
drink of tho best and purest water
and unite m wishing a speedy com
pletion of the waterworks.

The fish trap invented by Mr.

dead failure. Tho specimen built
