Mr. A. B. Fairchild has returned from
Chehalis River Park, Wash., where he
has been with a band of horses. He
sold all but three head which he was
compelled to bring home. As the Reg

by the U. P. and it only cost him $19.50
more to have the three brought up by
rail than it did to take them down by
the D. P. & A. N. Co. He was very
much pleased with his steamboat ex
perience, and says no more railroad for
him if it can possibly be avoided. As
an instance of the difference between
the railroad and the steamboat accom
modations, he says that the "Kellogg"
was hailed by a rancher who called to
the captain to get him a dozen slate pen
cils for his little girl which was taken
good naturedly by the captain as though
it were a $20 commission.

Will Wait for High Water.
A house on a flat or wood boat is a
common sight, but to see a boat on a
house is another thing. Yesterday the
wood scow "Mayflower" hoisted sail
and headed for the middle of the river,
and the man at the helm, not taking the
correct point of the compass and forget
ting his bearings, sailed his craft inside
of the buoy and directly on top of the
submerged dock building of the D. P. &
A. N. Co. She went on so hard that
she was held fast, and nothing save a
good riso of water will float her off. from
her novel mooring.
The First Work Specified in the Con
tract Done Yesterday.
Cascade Locks, Or., May 30. Spe
cial The first train load of stone ar
rived today in the yards from the Her
man creek quarry, being the first work
done which comes under the stipulations
of the contract aud for which the con
tractors will receive pay. The town is
jubilant and the locomotive Early Day
and steam whistles of all kinds here are
making all the noise possible in honor
of the event. The round trip, including
Mhe loading of two. cars at the steam der
ricks, was made in forty minutes. Two
hundred feet of stone cutter sheds have
been constructed, provided with travel
ers, on which traveling derricks can
transfer the rock to the different work
men. There are also here some power
ful engines, having compressed air as
the motive force, which are to be used in
dressing the rock. An instance of the
benefit of contract over government
work is to be found in the fact that the
300 feet of sheds, two-thirds of which
has been built, will cost $2,000 less than
250 feet of the same work cost when
Major Handbury was in charge, the ma
chines being much better besides, which
are included in the estimate.
G. A. K. Memorial Services.
Services were begun by the reading of
the orders for the observance of the day
by Adjutant Brown of Nesmith Post,
followed by a short address by Post
Commander Patterson on the observ
ance of Memorial day by the G. A. R.
Next followed a song by the choir And
remarks by Commander Patterson,
after which an earnest and impressive
prayer by Rev. J. Whisler, chaplain of
the post. Then came the distribution
of flowers to all the comrades, after
which was another song by tbe choir.
Then the solemn and beautiful cere
mony of the veterans laying tenderly
the flowers around the monument
erected to the memory of their fallen
comrades, each with a tender sentiment
for their immediate command. When
Comrade Bates was reached, after a few
well chosen words, he said : "In mem
ory of 12,000 comrades who lie buried at
Andersonville prison I deposit these
flowers." The la9t to deposit the flow
ers was Rev. Whisler, who, with a few
touching words, laid them tenderly
there "In memory of all my fallen com
rades." The closing song "My Country
'Tis of Thee," was sung by the ehoir,
joined by the comrades and people,
after which tbe benediction was pro
nounced by Rev. Whisler, and the as
semblage dispersed.
Grand Jnry'i Report.
We, the grand jury, respectfully re
port that we have been in session seven
days, and have found and returned into
court eight indictments and one not true
bill, and have also inquired into several
matters brought before us that did not
warrant indictments, and upon which
no report has been made.
We have also examined and inquired
into the condition and management of
the county jail,- and find it in good con
dition and well managed.
We also inquired into the condition
and management of the clerk's, sheriff's
and county treasurer's offices, and found
them all in good condition and all books
neatly kept and all correct, so far as we
are able to judge.
We also visited the county poor house
and found it in good condition and well
kept. We found two inmates, Philip
Smith and William Darragh, who ap
pear to be well cared for and satisfied.
We would respectfully submit that
the grand jury believe from evidence
that William Darragh receives consider
able money each month from his father;
also that he is in fairly good health, and
are fully satisfied that, under the cir-
umstances, he is fully able to make his
n living, and would recommend that
babe discharged.

Billy's Lecture.
he lecture last night by R. O. Bates
roved as interesting as was claimed,
and few there were who did not shed
tears at the pathetic recital of the trials
undergone during the war in the rebel
prisons. Those who did not cry on this
account, cried for the sake of a little
baby with the whooping cough, who
was obviously suffering and whose pres
ence endangered other little ones who
were at the meeting. It was later
learned that she was the wife of an old
soldier, and who had become so in
tensely interested In the forthcoming
lecture that it got the better of her pru
dence. Death of Lloyd Brooke.
Mr. Lloyd Brooke, a pioneer of Ore
gon, and one of Portland's prominent
citizens, died last Monday afternoon
after a prolonged feebleness. Mr.
Brooke was one of tbe prominent char
acters in the navigation interest of the
northwest in its earlier days, and a man
full of sterling qualities and generous
impulses. At one time he was con
nected with the growing interests of
Eastern Oregon's developments, and al
ways was a firm believer in the ulti
mate greatness of his Oregon home.
Mr. Brooke was 74 years of age, and was
born in Georgetown, D. C. Hail, all
hail, brother pioneer.
