A fire at Portland, Oregon, on Saturday destroyed $50,000 worth of projierty. The county jail of Kinney county, Texas, burned, and roasted a Mexican prisoner to death. Clarence Whistler, of San Francisco, and Tom. Cannon, of Denver, had a wrestling match lor $.'250 u side. Whistler won. President Riddle and Cashier Reiher of the insolvent Penti hank of Pittsburg and eight others, have been indicted for con spiracy to rob the bank. H. W. Thatcr, editor of the Batesville (Miss.)

A worm recently made its appearance m portions of the Willamett valley, Ore gon, and destroyed many crops. It is pronounced to be the famous "cut worm." It is very voracious, eating everything green in its path. Much apprehension is felt. A cattle round-up camp on French man's creek, near the Nebraska and Colo rado line was destroyed by a flood last Thursday. Eleven cowboys belonging to the Colorado and Nebraska outfits were drowned. The flood was caused by ? cloudburst which occurred at the head of the Cheyenne Indian trail canyon, the water coming with such force as to sweep everything boforc it. YTmkton, Dak.* dispatch: The Sioux commission, consisting of Newton Ed munds, Secretary Teller and Judge Shan non, has returned from Sisseton agency. It visited the agency for the purpose of inducing the Sisseton and Wah peton Sioux to sell a portion of the reservation. The Indians, through their legislature and gov ernment, refused to sell, and negotiations are off. The commission visits the Yank ton agency on a similar mission in a couple of weeks and will probably be more successful. Pendleton (Ogn.) telegram, 30th : Early this morning the body of an unknown man was discovered near town hanging by the neck. A large placard was attached to the body, bearing the significant words "Horse Thief." The victim was a total stranger in this section. There was everv indication that the man had been hanged by vigilantes. This poition of eastern Oregon lias been tested lately by roving bands of cattle and horse thieves. The citizens have organized and determined to clear the country of the roughs, cut throats ami thieves. Indications of Murder. A telegram from Glendive to the Pioneer Press of May 31st, says: The body of a man was foipid in the Aiel lo wstone river, about forty-lhe miles below Glendive, last evening. His throat had been eut, and other knife wounds were found on his person. The coroner has gone down to hold an in quest. A telegram a day later says: In the case of the murdered man discovered in the river below here, the coronor found an ax wound over the left eye, reaching from the bridge of the nose to the temple, and another gash over the left ear. Ilis throat was cut, and there was a bullet bole in the region of the heart; beside, there were two holes on each side, just forwaid of the arms. Both legs were cut off at the upper and middle third of thigh bone. He had ueen dead about three weeks. The body was nude. ■The deceased was about fifty years old, had dark hair, somewhat silvered; supposed to be the body of Jim Smith, a pal of McArthur's, presumed to have been fatally shot by Sergeant Gonrad, at the attempt to rob Paymaster Whipple. The body was mutilated to prevent identification. Color is given to this theory from the fact of his death about that time. The highwaymen burned his clothing at their first camp after the fight.

Special Telegram to the Daily Enterprise. Chicago, June 3.—Senator Sabin of Minnesota, chairman of the national committee, called the convention to order at 12:25 p. in. Prayer was of fered, and the call was read by the secretary of the committee. Sabin nominated Powell Clayton of Arkan sas, for temporary chairman, a strong Blaine supporter. The battle com menced at once when Lodge of Massa chusetts, nominated John Lynch of Mississippi, and demanded a call of the roll. Morrow of California, spoke against division of the convention and George William Curtis of New York, urged the convention to avoid a fight, and amid excitement and tremendous applause the discussion of the tempo rary chairman question begun. Blaine and Logan delegates favor Powell Clayton, while Arthur and Edmunds men support Lynch. At the hour of going to press no news lias been received of the out come of the discussion or result of the roll ca*l. Au old woman named Gordon in the north of Scotland was listening to the ac count given in the Scripture Solomon's glory, which was read to lier by a little female grandchild. When the littlr girl came to tell of the thousand camels which formed part of the Jewish sovorigu's live stock. "What," cried the old woman, "a thousand Campbell's, say ye? The Camp bells aie an auld clan, sure enencli, but look an, ye dinna see the Gordons, too." People wonder how poor men who take offices at Washington get enormously rich in a few years. The secret is clear as day to the Wall street brokers. They specu late on the strength of the information which comes to them in an official capac ity. They need not rob the goverment or play poker. A senator from the Pacific coast about six months ago astounded his broker by writing him to buy Northern Pacific for him. Everybody else was glad to sell, hut this knowing man wanted to buy. The following day it was announced that certain through mail contracts were approved, and Northern Pacific took a full upward breath of life. The senator made enough to pay him for his trouble. I was told the story by a friend of the % senator, and am inclined to know that it is only a drop in an ocean of similar circum stances.—Pioneer Press. A special term of court for Beaver head county will convene at Dillon on the first Monday in July. The Salt Lake Tribune says that quartz mining is really only about twenty-five years of age in America. When wc say this we do not forget that there were rude quartz mills in Georgia and California long liefere that. But until this discovery of the Comstoc k there was not a first-class shaft, first-class hoisting works or reduc tion works in America. Not only did the business have to be learned but it had to be learned in spots where the education was most expensive. The science of Eu rope was a ]>erfcct failure when applied to America with all the changed condi tions. The American miner solved the problem by sheer force of intellect, daring and energy. The proposition was to take dejiosits of ore or barren mountains, where labor was high, where roads had to be built, and where everything eaten or used by men or teams had to be purchased at tremendous cost, and where full half the deposits were valueless, and still make them pay. And to make them pay after everything had Ijeen overcome it was nec essary to find out the different processes through which the precious metals could, at reasonable cost, be separated from bar ren rock. This ha« been accomplished and the work lias aquired such dignity that the proceeds of the quartz mines of the country are now a tremendous factor in making estimates as to the tradj and probable values of the year.
