Trouble on tbn Oregon Pacific.
About 300 laborers, who hnd been
working for Jacobs & Nougasa ou
the Oregon Pacific railroad, wero in
Albany yesterday, says the Herald,
having comedown Christmas night.
Many of them wero without money,
and although they had plenty of
time chucks on the firm which had
failed they could not of coureo raise
any money on the paper, and could
not even buy a meal. The city coun
cil took the matter in hand and
nrnviiled the- men with meals at
the different hotels, and most of the
men left for Corvallis.
On arriving there a committeo of
laborers waited upon Vice-President
Wallis Nash to ascertain if the $8000
duo them from Jacobs & Ncugass
could bo secured. It was learned
that tho company had paid Jacobs
&Neugass last week f 15,000, and
altogether over $30,000. which in
cluded all duo them except tho work
for December. This amount tho la
borers will probably receive, in
which event they will lose very
little. No fault is attached to the
railroad company as it has promptly
paid for tho work done.
Tho plant and supplies of Jacobs
&Neugass have been attached by
Portland creditors. This failure has
caused a scare among creditors, and
attachments have also been levied
by Portland creditors and by Stewart
& Sox and Wallace, Thompson &
Co., of Albany, on tho plant of
Searles & Dean. The latter Arm, it
is thought, will bo able to meet their
Tho failure has filled Albany with
idlo men, who have been thrown
out of employment.
Want Cherries to Plant
The sweet cherries, Hearts and
lilgiirrauiH, Inning linn llesh, can
1)0 shipped a long distance and they
retain their llavor better than any
other fruit in drying. As they can
not 1)0 grown in tho prairio states
they will always bo in demand at
tho canneries. Tho following aro
tho best varieties: JJlaek Tartarian,
Itoyul Ann, Black Bepublican and
Yellow Spanish. Tho latter perhaps
has no equal.
By planting cherries of tho diil'er
cnt classes tho season may bo pro
longed for two months In tills valley.
May Duke, Early Purple, Golgno
nnd Knight's Early Black aro
among tho earliest. Lato Duke,
English Morollo, Black Republican
and Windsor aro tho latest.
A Drunken Brawl at GerraU.
Yesterday's staoolng affray at
Gervals may possibly result in the
death of Robert Krcbs, one of the
participants. It appears that Krcbs,
whose homo is at Brooks, was drink
ing in a saloon at Gervais with
Charles Atwood, section boss on tho
O. &C. road, when they commenced
disputing with each other over their
respective physical powers, eacn
claiming to be tho "best man." At
last it was decided that they should
settlo the matter by going outside
the city limits and lighting it out.
They went into a Held a short dis
tance from town, being accompanied
by William Holtzclaw and a man
named Dickenson. Tho whole crowd
was drunk and they quarreled lor
sometime before the bloody light
took place betweeen Krebs and At
wood, from which Krebs camo oil
After giving Atwood a severe
bcatlugKrebsstartedback to Gervals
but on reaching the road turned
around und returned to tho Held
where tho other men had remained.
He says that three men then assault
ed him. Ho held them at bay for a
time by striking at them with his
pistol, but they finally overpowered
him and Atwood stabbed him in tho
abdomen with a knife. He was
carried to Gervnisanditwas thought
for a time ho could not recover from
his wounds but this morning ho was
doing uicely aud will get well.
At tho preliminary examination
conducted at Gervals yesterday
evening before J. S. Purdom, jus
tice of 4 tho Peace, Charles Atwood
and William Holttclaw were bound
over, charged with assault with in
tent to kill, to await tho action of
the grand jury. They wero brought
to this city this afternoon aud
placed in jail. Dickenson was dis
charged, there boing no evidence
that ho had a hand in the quarrel.
Statistic of Prunes.
Mr. Lowolllng weighed tho fruit
from u lot of German prune tree?,
olglit years old, anil they averaged
one hundred pounds per tree. This
wjih not an extraordinary yield,
Ouo-slxty trees to tho aero would
iimko a return of $100 for tho fruit
sold at tho canneries. If dried, tho
returns would bo more. Tho Ger
man prune is not so prolltablo as
the Silver prune, or the Italian and
its sub-variety, tho Golden.
Ono man can cultivate twenty
acres planted to pears or prunes.
and will require help only in har
vesting. An average unuual return
of $100 Hr aero is a modest estimate
based on prices for fruits in homo
market. A heavy per cent, niiiy bo
added to this if tho fruit Is shipped.
the Moody Meetings,
It w.ts expected that Messrs. Studd
nnd Burke, tho evangelists, would
nrrlvo in Sitloin this morning, but
they did not come. Tho prospect
now Is that they will come up from
Portland on the train this evening.
If they do come as anticipated tho
revival meetings will commence at
tho M. E. church to-night. If they
do not come, song service will bo
held there, to which all aro invited.
A Cab system.
Tn March tho Gurney system of
cabs is to be established in Salem.
Yesterday evening J. T. Gurney,
inventor of tho system, left tho city
for Albany, having arranged to in
troduce his cabs here. These cabs,
which aro In use in tho larger cities
of tho East, and havo recently been
put in uso in Seattle, Tacoma and
Spokane Falls aro elegant vehicles,
being built similar to ordinary cabs,
only thoy aro one-half lighter and
made wholly of steel and will carry
four passengers. Tho carriage is
hung just one step from tho ground,
so that, backed up to tho sidewalk
tho passenger steps at once 'nto it.
Inside, tho cab is finished with em
bossed French mohair plush, with
satin head lining. Tho steel body
of tho carriage is capablo of a high
polish aud is painted a handsome
wino color. It is equipped with
robes for wintorand dusters forsum-
mer. Tho drivers aro arrayed in
livery and required to live up to
stringont rules. The charges aro 25
cents per mile, or ilvo coupon tickets
for a dollar. When bought in largo
numbers a much less rate is made.
The Woolen 51111.
To-night tho committeo aud all
Interested- citizens will meet at tho
Cnpltnl hunk f.ir tho further discus
sion and consideration of tho woolen
mill proposition. Tho meeting will
bo full of Interest, as enough is
known to proceed with active solici

Tbe Only Smallpox.
In Marlon county there aro no
eases of smallpox, excepting In tho
LaChappels near Gervals. They
are improving slowly and it Is
thought now that Amadl LaCha
polo will recover. Ho is a half
breed aud has lived a varied life,
but tho nurses think he will come
through all right. Of the dozen
cases of smallpox in this county
there wero but two deaths, and
they wero children who were quarter-breed
Indians. Tills fact may
perhaps account for tho disease
dealing sosoverly with this family.
A Grand Uaure.
TheClieineketo parlors and dining
room wero all ablaze last night in hol
lldtiy attire. Thoy wero tho scene of a
merry dance, given by tho Salem
Social club which was attended by
many couples. Tills, thoy say, was
tho holiday party of this club and
tho tlanco scorned to navo been en
tered Into with much spirit. A
Portland ochestru came up and dis
coursed its Bwcctest strains. Tho
Chemcketo spread an ample lunch
and all wont merry until a late

tho calaboose than ho is in again.
Ho is n good worker, but when ho

and will be arraigned as a vag this

THAT SILVEKTON D0O KILLING.
SiiiVERTOK, Or., Dec. 20, '88.
Editor Journal : Will you al
low me a few lines in your paper .to
correct an article In a Salem morn
ing paper of tho 17th lust., In regard
to the killing ef ono Alonzo Brown's
dog by Clyde Davenport. Thepuper
says that Brown still insists on
Clyde's father paying for tho dog.
Now the facts aro that no demand
has over been made for payment
for the dog, consequently Davenport
has never had an opportunity to
decllno payment. That I take
Davenport's part or any one's part iu
the muddlo is not true: that my
brother'and I had hot words about
tho matter on tho 'streets or any
where else is faiso ; nor did he strike
or attempt to strike me, as stated in
that paper ; nor was I looking for an
officer to havo him arrested.
Now the facts are simply these :
Brown's dog seized upon Clyde
Davenport on Saturday as he was
taking his cows to pasture and tho
Sunday following Clyde killed tho
dog. Brown was angry about
tho killing of his valuable shepherd
but did not do what ho was charged
Tho article in question must have
emanated from that paper's or the
Siftings' reporter in this place or
from a member of tho crowd to
which they belong, and the same
crowd that backs tho whisky mill,
here, bull dozes city elections and
tries to steal city governments.
