7 THEGREAT NORTHWEST InterestingHtppenings in lh-s, tie^World's Firored Section. WEREAFRAID OF A WOMAN ThaFirst StitmbMt to Ply en tha^Pacific OcUn-A Younar Lady^Ruined-Tha Danny^Family. TheTacoraa Ledger tolls of a ^monitor^sturgeon,^ caught Tuesday, tbat actually^weighed 100 pounds. When a little baby^sturgeon like tbat is caught in the Colum^^bia, says the .tsformii, he 1* filing back^and given a chance to grow to some s i^. Thefirst steamboat to ply on the wat^^ers of the Pacific ocean was the Dearer,^winch canto around Capo Horu 62 year*^^^go. The boat now lies at IJurrartl's In^^let, wht ro she is v site 1 by thousands,^says the Portland Orr-jimian. She is fast^being carried away by piecemeal by those^who wish mementoes of the pioneer craft. EdwardPierco and Miss Annie Wright^of Paleuse, Wash., were returning home^from a daneu between 3 and t o'clock^Monday morning. Pierce made several^Improper proposals to the young lady,^and finally, by mam force, accomplished^lier ruin. He is now in jail. The girl's^father says he will kill Pierce on sight.^Previous to this act young Pierce bore a^good name. Thisis ^journalism^ in Eastern Ore^^gon. We take it from the Mum Ot*server:^^We ex pi ct the Dishraij will paralyze us^this week. No doubt we'll be told we had^a severe spell of the jim-jams or that wo^are getting hostile, or something else of^an equally stupid character. Well, let^your thunderbolts (^) loose, Mr. Ditkran^man ; we're not afraid of them. We can^stand all the censure you can give us and^como up smiling for the nest round. ThomasL. Brophy, a t it i n of Walla^Walla, is interested in mines and de^^votes considerable of his tima in pros*^pecting tho mountains hunting for hid^^den treasures. The Union Journal says:^During one ^if his prospecting tours Mr.^Drophy discovered a deposit of gems,^such as ^u| plies opals, rubies, carnelians,^etc., in their native state, encased in a^kind of cement, lie brought samples to^Walla Walla, had some of them polished^and cut, exhibiting them to many of our^citisens. Theentiro Denny famtly. now living,^were together in Albany one day last^week, for the first tune in 13 years, and^the event was celebrated by having their^pictures taken in a group. Mrs. Denny,^now ever 80, was the center. Hon O.N.^Denny, of Portland; John Denny, of Salt^Lake City; Mrs. Pike, of Wasco county;^Mrs. William Ralston and Mrs. W. H.^Goltra, of Albany, ber only children,^and several grandchildren formed the^croup. As Mrs. Denny is greatly im^^proved in health, the union is proving a^happy one, says tho Albany Democrut. LastMonday forenoon, says the Waits-^burg Times, team after team drawing^heavy loads of grain passed down Main^street without attracting any unusual at^^tention or taking particular care where or^how they tirovo,further than to keep out of on*another's way. They crossed over^the fire cistern In the center of slain^street near Second without even wonder-^lac whether or not there was any danger^in so doing. Bui daring tha noon hour,^when there was bat little stir on the^street, that cistern caved in completely,^leaving a hole aa less than 16 fast in di^^ameter and about 8 feet deep. Tbat it^should stand under wagons with tons of^grain and than fall when nobody was on^It or even near it, seems almost miracu^^lous, but it is nevertheless true. Aparty of ladies and gentlemen re^^cently left Coneonuully.ssys a correspond^^ent of the Chelan Palis Leader, far a trip^over tha trail to the south fork of Salmon^creek. The falls well repay one for the^trip, rivaling, as expressed by several.the^famous falls at Watkin's Ulen. In Nsw^York state. There is a greater volume of^water and many more feet of fall, there^being 150 feet fall In a shoit distance. Al^^though much broken they are so near to^^gether that one does not recover from his^won lor and admiration until he discov^^ers another tumble much more interest^^ing and beautiful than its predecessor.^Here the water tlaslio* over an immense^and jsggetl precipice, and below lies so^peacctiilly in a little pool that shadows^are reflected upon its placid surface. At^tho side and foot of one fall is a well in^the solid reck, smooth and round as^though chiseled by the hand of man. Theboarding house of G. U. Severance,^at 1206 Jackson street, was entered by^burglars at 3 o'clock this morning, says^the Seattle J'rettT-imes of Thursday.^Somo of the inmates were awakentd^by hearing some ouo feeling bis way^through the ball on the second floor. Mr.^Severance got up, lighted a lamp and^went out into the hall, and was unified^hack by a Dip, burly, dark-faced man,^with a busily mustache. Tho man ap^^peared to have large woolen socks on^bis feet, and no boots. Mr. Severance,^although a man of nerve, decided that^discretion wus the better part of valor,^and when tho revolver was pointed^toward his bead he very obediently^backed into his room, but refused to^closo tho door, whereupon the visitor^cocked bis revolver. Then it came Mrs.^Severance's time to act. Ueing a woman^of unusual presence of mind, and be^^lieving there is no such tiling as total dc-^pravity, she said to the burglar: ^Now,^won't you please go down, because there^is nothing in the house that you want,^and it is very unseemly to be prowling^around in a strange house at this hour^^^Finding himself foiled in his object he^decided to leavo and as he went hy the^door Mrs. Severance said: ^Where arc^your boots^^ No answer. ^Where arc^your boots^^ again queried Mrs. Sever^^ance, and still no auswor. Mr. Sever^^ance followed to the head of the stairs,^to light his guest down, but was ordertd^back. There were evidently two,for as thn^one who came down stairs was ptiitirg on^his boots ho was heard to irreverently re^^mark. ^Tno old woman wanted to know^where my boots were, and the old man^had not as much as a tack hammer in^bis hand. HERPISTOL WOULDN'T WORK. CaptainO'Sbea, ex-husband of Kitty,^is reported to contemplate wedlock again.^The young lady to whom ho is said to be^engaged is the daughter of an English^squire, who at one time occupied a^rather prominent position in the world^of politics. ViltelaeasAssaalt I pos a Iwsss W lathe Likay Dlsinet.^Uteris^. Correspondence of the Standard. DtMEKKViLLit.Sept. 31.^T. i. Mo-^Grab, deputy sheriff at this place, says^daring his trip to ^h) Libby distret ha^had an interview with a Sweda woman,^who related her experience In tbe dis^^trict. Tha lady said tbat the night of the^day she arrived in the Libby district she^noticed a man named Foley coming in^ber tent by lifting up and crawling un^^der one side of it, who on gaining en^^trance proceeded to commit a criminal^assault upon her, but she successfully^drove him out of the tent. Soon again^hs returned and gained entrance the^same way, and renewing tbe assault she^grappled hold of an axe and dealt him^several blows on the body and success^^fully got tbe fellow outside again, wben^lis undertook repeatedly to gain entrance^to tho tent. 'I he woman had a pistol^which she tried to use, but it refuted to^work. Her screams were heard in the^little town of Libby, whit h was a short^distance from ^here she camped and^several men came to her assistance. Tbe^woman's husband is employed as a la^^borer some distance from Libby on tbe^railroad, which necessitated ber to be^alone. ^Shorty^ McClure, who knew tbe^woman ami her husband in McCarthys*^villc, remained with tho woman while^the other purties informed her husband^of tbe attempted assault and the critical^nervous condition in which she was in.^Promptly on the arrival of the lady's hus^^band she was removed in her bed. being^unable to get out of it or move in it, to a^shack somo distance away. Tbe shack^in which the woman was lying sick was^the most perfect specimen of povorty. It^was completely destitute of a door, no^windows set In the place wherein open^^ings were cut in the sidos of the building,^the eurth constituted tho floor, the spaces^between the Iocs were not chinked or^plastered, and the roof was composed of^a few poles with some cedar or pine or^fir bows thrown upon tin in with sullicient^earth thereon to keep them on the^roof. Tho bed itself was nouo too good^for a sick person, being made out of some^poles, then bows, and then what bedding^she possessed. The woman is still in a^very critical condition, but is breaming^better daily. The man, Foley, was at-^rested by Robert Cantwell on a warrant^issued from the court of Hubert Cantwell,^justice of tho peace. The woman is un^^able to speak but little Knylisli, and^knowing very little about the ways of tbe^country, especially in the courts of law,^and her mind being in a very unsettled^state, influence was brought to bear lrcm^some source and the t uise was settled^and the cast, dismissed. Tbe sheriff states^thul this woman aud another are the only^respectable ladies in the Libby country.^His boner stated to tho sheriff that he^thought the whole affair was a black^^mailing scheme. What h'.-draws his in^^ferences from be did not slate. t'neleAllen lirsws a Cuuipsrlson. FromtheCIileogo iribuue. Iudriving along a boulevard havirg^th ^ misfortune to be crossed by a railway,^my boy, you have sometimes seen a con^^gregation ol men in buggies and car-^r ases and on horseback waiting im-^patiently for a long freight to | ass. You^have seen how tin y have all Btarted at once^when the way was clear anil the danger^gates were lift d up again ^ h iw they wereall la a bunch till they had crossed^the tracks and then the faster horses be^^gan to draw away from tha slower ones^and the fastest horse^ from these, so that^in a few minutes every team was going^along at us usual place in the long strag^^gling procession. Inlika manner, my boy.if agate should^he shut down across the highway of hu^^man progress long enough to slop every^body and make all equal in tho race for^wealth, fame, and honors for tbe time be^^ing, there would be tbe same impatience,^tho same champing at the bit,^my; boy, until tho obstruction^was removed, and then you^would see them all start off in a bunch.^Hut they would not stay In a bunch long,^my bry. Each man by virtureof Ins osrn^talents, worth, or lack of either would^soon occupy his regular o'.tl place in the^procession.
