On Wednes day there waa a thorough teat made of the con I from the CHIT and Dalton pros pect, back of Warren, a to it steam producing qualities, and the result waa moat satisfactory. This teat was made by the steamer America, her flro box having been arranged to burn coal in stead of wood, and Engineer Charley Thompson, of that boat, Informed the writer tiiat the coal produced ail the team the engine could utilise, and when proerly arranged for the round trip could easily be made on two tons of coal. The proximity of the coal to transportation would enable the article to be laid down here at a cost of about $3 a ton, which would mean exceedingly cheap fuel for not only manufHCturlng puriose. but also for domestic use. The quality of the article now having been proven beyond uouut to be all that la required, the Important thing is to ascertain the extent to which the coat exists in that vicinity. I'rospect work is being prosecuted to some considera ble extent in other places, near the C I i tr illion nrosiiects, and the operator vein extremely sanguine as to the favor able result of their labor.

The majority of the legal voter of Bcappoose pre cinct did not or do not now want a sa loon up there, anil by reference to the ctmimfasioners' proceedings it will be seen that there is to be no grog shop up there, for the present, at least. A great many people of that precinct always reinonetraUtl against the existence of ucb a business enterprise in their midst, and tills element had their in nings In court last Friday and won out with hand down. Aside from the fact that there were more remonstrators than petitioner it ia most likely the pe tition would have been knocked out by teclmicalitie and some very serious fault of the petition as printed. Any how, our friends at Bcappoose will have to go elsewhere for a time, at least, to wet their whistleN. The majority said nay, and that settle it. Max OaxooKiAKS Bliwi. The Con cordia (Kan.)
