Mrs. M. E. Ziglar created quite a
sensation at the Yillard House Fri
day night, says the Pendleton Hast
( fixon tan, by stealing her child from
its father. The parents have been
separated since June last, the father
retaining the child (a ixy of about
five years) and the mother going lo
Portland, where she has been a wait
ress m restaurants. She came upon
the train Tuesday last, and Wednes
dav visited a farm a short distance
from this city where the child was
kept, and made its keeiier promise to
send it to see her yesterday. In the
evening Mr. Ziglar brought the boy
to the hotel, and just after dinner
Mrs. Ziglar enticed him up stairs
while its father was settling his bill,
and mother and boy disappeared.
Ziglar spent the night in fruitless
search, only to learn that mother and
child were provided with a private
conveyance by which they fled early
m the evening for Washington Terri
tory. The scheme was a bold one
and most successfully carried to com
pletion. The llosebnrg, Oregon, Plain-
ltaki says: The number of China
men passing through here from the
front during the past week has caus
ed no little comment We learn from
good authority that when their jobs
are done thev are discharged and
that preparations will soon be sus
pended. The O. & C. IX. B. Co, will
finish the road ns far south as Ash
land and will then discharge all their
employes except llios at work on
the tunnels. It is expected that
regular trains will run to Grant's
pass by December tlie 1st, A large
force of Iracklavers will be organized
in about a month under the super
vision of Mr. Waite and will lay track
to a point about four nines north of
Ashland, where the supply station
will 1k established. It will take
some time, but the work will be
pushed forward rapidly. From pres
ent appearances it would seem that
Yillard was running short of money
and likely to suspend construction
at any time. However, we hope that
this is not the case and that we will
have through communication by rail
with ban Francisco before lobo.
