VANCOUVER IXDEI'EN DENT.
THURSDAY, FKBRUARY 1, 1893. Heal estate speculators arc just now very much interested in locating the Oregon Short Line terminus at St- John's, but the railroad officials re main to be heard from. No one out side of the ring believes what the speculators claim. Astoria hail a light snow that lasted all day not long since, aiul the boys had a big time sliding down hill. The results of that one day of sport are summed up as follows: Rroken, one leg, one ringer, one picket fence, one heart, one engagement, one knee-pan, one shin, one gold wateh, and one ear missing. The boys had lot* of fun. The Cheuey Sentinel publishes this story: "One of the most singular phe nomena which ever fell under the writer's observation is visible in a well at Merriam A Hall's mill, up the N. P. At a depth of ninety feet the gravel is frozen solid, while forty feet above water is dripping. Ice forms so rap idly that Morris, the contractor, has been forced to throw up the contract. A draft of air at the bottom indicates a subterranean passage.'' The mormon ministers are begin ning to meet with opposition in civil ized communities outside of Utah, A South Carolina dispatch of Saturday says: Two middle aged men arrived iu the town of ltockville, York county, yesterday. They gave their names as Elders J no. M. Eaton and Angus Mc- Kay, of Salt Lake, missionaries of the church of Latter Day Saints, and an nounced their intention of entering at once upon their work of proselytisni. A committee of young men of the town waited on them last night and warned them toleavethecounty with in 2i hours, on pain of being tarred and feathered and ridden ou a rail. They went away this morning. Among the recent developments along the line of the Northern Pacific railroad, may be mentioned the lime find on lake I'end d'Oreille. Several months ago a party of travelers came across what they considered a ledge of marble, but subsequent developments proved it te be limestone of the very best grade, equaling if not supeiiur in quality, to the famous San Juan stone. The claim was purchased by Messrs. J. C. Davenport, ('. li. Hopkins, R. Evert & Co., J. Q. Spaulding and J. Belcher, who are at present building kilns, warehouses, etc., and making extensive preparations for putting the lime on the market in the spring. The superior quality of the product assures the fortunate purchasers of the claim a rich investment and promises to be one of the most valuable industries in the inland empire. Skamama OOCJTTT.—Not long since Alex. Borthwich of the Cascade mills, had bis overcoat stolen, a stylish garment which stood him for ii>3 coin. A wood-chopper was suspected of the theft, a swaggering fellow, fond of flourishing a revolver, ami who proposed to run the w hole county or eat it up. He had threatened the book keeper at the mill, and various other per sons, until it was concluded by the resi dents that it was time to dispose of him. A committee of fifteen, with a good rope m hand, waited upon the roaring lion and in formed him that his times had come unless he immediately produced that missing over coat. He proceeded v. about delay to bring forth the aforesaid overcoat, which he laid before the committee. He was then gi»( n five minutes tune in which to vamoose the ranch. In just a minute and a half he had his satchel packed and was making tracks for some healthier locality. The mill camp trill now be left in peace for a time. Mrs. Collins recently sold to Mr. Bell, president of the Bank of Oregon, -HSO acres of her ranch M >kam.»nu county. The wood cutters are new putting on the bank unusually large stocks of cord-wood, under the impulse of high prices. Wood is now worth #3.00 per cord on the bank, whereas a year ago it brought only $2.25. Ibe lumbermen are runuiug the camps and mill to full rapacity, and then caunot keep np with orders, so groat is the demand for all kinds of lumber. H»y >s well up in price at at tlie lumber campa, on account ol 4 scarcity of the arti cle, which ii worth &20 to HI per too. Ths return of Mr. Karimworth to his old home la the east is a nurpnae Ui the peo ple, asd was a matter of importance auffic leat to juatify aending out cv«r the country the following dispatch: New York. Jaa. 29. One of the aurviv iDg "forty-ninera," Levi Karnawortb, of Jouesboro, Me., returned to hia old home a few days ag.'. after an absence of 33 yeara. lie « t ii. ,1 for the PfesMt iu November, 1849, leaving behind him hia wife ami six chil dren, all of whom were living to greet him on Ilia return, except our daughter, who died Jti years ago. To <««>. or not to «;<>. Chicauo, 111., Jan. 16, ISB3. Ukak Ishki'kniiknt: Since my last communication 1 have con templated a trip to the wild* of Washington, hi discussing the pros and cons with my butter half we have naturally fallen into a comparison of the advantages of life east and west. We are agreed that Chicago furnishes unequaled facilities for spending money. On every hand are luxuries which custom converts into necessities. No night during the year is without its amusements. No Sabath need be spent away from grand preaching and glorious music. Schools are of the best. What more can one ask? No thing in the way of luxuries, amusements or advantages of education. And yet there are things to make the primitive life of the west attractive. While you have glorious sun shine and genial temperature during most of the year, we breathe the smoke of commerce, gaze upon leaden skies, inutile in furs or swelter in linen. The sun is no friend to Chicago. In winter we rarely see it —iu summer we see it too much. We freeze or we burn. The west gives fruit iu intinite variety, fresh aud toothsome. Chicago has fruit, all the year round, but it coutains mure colic to the pound than any other known of men. The west is abundantly supplied with pure water—at so much per month iu advance or ten per ceut. penalty— while Chicago has ouly Lake Michigan te draw from, aud therefore does not begrudge its consumers the fish aud frogs that fre quently come in with it. The west has free laud, almost. In Chicago one cannot afford to die, for laud is too dear to be buried in. In the west one can shoulder a gun and tramp around all day in the wet and maybe find a duck. In Chicago bankers and rich men can find them on South Water Street, aud they smell. They arc undeniably au eient. The ducks I mean. Aud fish, too. After gazing upon the "fresh fish" in the markets aim realizing that time has laid its softeniug hand upon them aud their sorrows, a longing is created to seek the salmon or tly the trout in its native waters. Waters that with you yield the succulent, but silent oys ter. With us, alas, only the bull head and the mud turtle. While you luxuriate in good cow butter at twenty-rive cents a pound, we are glad to get number one oleouiarger iue, labeled "creamery," at fifty. But we beat you on eggs. We can always feel cer tain of getting eggs that are perfectly ripe. Trifles? These all trifles? Well, so they are, but as the head of a family they strike me as living realities. But there are more seri ous tilings to consider. For instauce, the other side of the house wants to know what good a piano aud Brussels carpet will be iu a shanty on a ranch? I gire it up. Unless, if we failed to raise a crop we could "raise" something on the truck. Aud she wants to know what consolation it would be to a woman to live in a climate so even that she would not need four kinds of bonnets in a year. Well, that has its advantages, but I wouldn't like to mention them at this end of the line. Nut at home and out loud. And she wants to know what springs of joy there would lie in wearing water-proof and gum shoes all winter. So I remind her of the years ago in Wisconsin when our pioneer parents had to hold an umbrella ever the bed when it rained o'nights -and that any way she would have all summer to dry out iu. Oh! I've got it. Not bod yet, but when I hear the west coast mentioned. I can feel the even pulse bound into quicker action. I like to hear nieu praise it and I rebel when I hear it adversely criticized. I fear that as the weeks go on and the liveuiug spring time comes I can uo more resist bursting my Chicago shell to blossom in Washington, than can the planted acoru stay within the dark and noisome soil, when nature moves the life-springs within. And then, again, pxrhapi the other side of the house will have something to say about it. B. Woodland llt in:.. The literary society here still holds to gether, and has regular meetings every .Sat urday night. C. C. Kozarth is kept quite busy these days in waiting on customers at his store here. Chris, has a natural turn for this kind of business. Married—at the residence of Norman Mer rill, in Cowlitz county, W. T., on Jan. 17th, ISS3, by C. C. Bozarth, J. P., Mr. Samuel t ouard of Columbia county, Or., to Miss Emu Vauliibbur, of Woodland, Cowlitz county, W. T. The slaying of cord-wood still goes on, led by that priuce of good fellows, and king of woodsmen, .lahtie liobinson, who takes an expecial delight in slayiug the giants sf the forest, anil ripping them into curd-wood for the Hurt land market. The matter in dispute between Mr. Oeorge Hrattou, who lost hi* barn by fire last fall, and Mr. Higgins, from whose slashing the barn caught tire, is about to be settled by arbitration, Mr. Hrattou Laving selected Oeo. W. Love, and Mr. Higgins having se lected Jas. YY. Cepeland as arbitrator* and appraisers of damages in the matter. These gentlemen are empowered to choose a third, should they fail of agreeing between them selves. It is to be hoped that this matter will be settled to the satiafactiou of the par ties concerned.
