Last Tuesday Sheriff Jones received
a letter from the superintendent of tti<
Western Washington hospital at Stella
ooom informing ■ him of the death oi
his father, Captain Isaiah Jones, who
was taken there for treatment about
five years ago, from Shaw island.
The death of Captain Jones takes
from us a unique and somewhat re
markable character. Springing from
old Virginia stock, he was born in the
state of Ohio in 1829, where he grew to
manhood, was married and had two
children. About the breaking out of
the war, his wife died and he enlisted
in an Ohio regiment of volunteers and
at once went to the front. During the
Beige of Vlcksburg he was stricken with
the camp disease so J prevailent among
the soldiers of that section, and by the
order of General ■' Grant, whose notice
le had already attracted by his gal
antry, he was 7 discharged and sent
lome, as it was supposed, to die; but
sustained by a constitution as strong
and unyielding as was his own per
sonal character, he so far recovered as
to be able to re-enlist. This time in a
Missouri regiment gotten up in Cald
well county, Missouri, where his pa
rents had located during his absence.
When the companies were organised
he was elected captain of Co. "B," I
think, which company he commanded
till the close of the war, taking an ac
tive part in the gurrilla warfare that
was so sanguinary in the southern and
southwestern part of that state, as well
as several general engagements. The
notorious James and Younger boys,
Bill Anderson and Quantrell were 1 the
famous leaders of the bands of bush- >
whackers that roamed over the coun
try leaving a trail of blood from the
forks of the Grand river on the north
to Arkansas on the south and west into
Kansas, celebrating their hist raids into
the latter state by the burning of Law
rence and murdering a large number of
its citizens. It was with the prisoners
here taken that report said immediate
ly afterwards that Cole Younger tested
the power of the Springfield rifle by
standing a number of men up in a row
and seeing how many he could shoot
through, killing eight. This gurrilla
warfare was carried on by small bodies
of men on both sides, and like the
enemy, the federal troops were forced
troops were forced to do much of their
marching in the night, lying concealed
during the daytime. In this, Captain
Jones was in his \ element; as fearless
and brave as any of the leaders of the
marauding | bands he ! was at home
around the campfire and shrank from
no hardships or danger. Cole Younger and his
band soon tired of facing such a foe and moved
south into Arkansas,•: while Bill Anderson was
killed and his command annihilated. In recog
nition of his services the governor of Missouri
commissioned Captain . Jones as lieutenant
colonel. Disease, however, had fastened upon
him and when the war closed he locatrd on a
farm, broken in health. The Tames and Young
ess, as soon as peace came, turned their atten
tion to bank robbing. - This was done in broad
daylight by shooting down all who opposed
them. One of the banks in Richmond, Ray
county, which joined Caldwell on the south,
was thus robbed and several of the citisens, in
cluding the deputy sheriff, being killed. Tha
bank in Galliton, in the county joining Cald
well on the north, was robbed, or attempted to
be robbed in the same manner, the president
and cashier being shot down in cold blood and
a retreat effected before the citisens could rally.
This was: in 1867. A reign of terror existed,
every country town was in a fever ef excitement
and fear and men who sought the office of
Sheriff, especially in Caldweu county/joining
the home of the James boys, were not so plenti
ful as they are today. 1 Of course, Captain Jones
was the man for the place. He was nominated
and elected and peace and order was enjoyed
during his official career. Shortly after his
election the grand jury found an indictment
against a desperate character, and a warrant for
his arrest was gives the new sheriff. The man
was known to be always armed to the teeth and
the Captain's friends advised him to take a
posse; but ignoring assistance and wholly un
armed, he hunted up his man, walked directly
to him and laying his band on him told him bis
errand and arrested him without the least diffi
culty. So much for his nerve.
Although an uneducated man, he was one of
the best political speakers in northern Missouri
and often met in public discussion with the
leading politicians in the state. As a farmer he
had considerable money. Strictly honest him
self, lie believed others te be so, sometimes to
his detriment. ..; v. *♦
• His second wife was Miss Etta Stevens, by
whom he raised quite a family, all of whom are
residents of the Sound; Newton, our present
sheriff, Grant and Earnest living in San Tuan
county; the widow, two youngest children and
one married daughter, Mrs. Carl Stewart, resid
ing in Whatcem county. His eldest daughter
Is a rsiedent of Oklahoma, and bis eldest son Is
dead. ■•"•■■- '" ■ "•" ■ - -■ '• >-' ■'■ <•■
For several years he. was a resident of this
Island, but was a resident of Shaw island whan
taken to the hospital, where he died on the nth
inst., at the age of 69 yean. , - %

A Chines* Solomon.
A recent number of the North China
Herald contained an account of the'
administration of justice by a Chinese j
magistrate which reminds ; one of Solo- j
mon. Two brothers, well advanced in j
age, quarreld over a piece of land which
they had jointly inherited from their
father, and ' went ito law. The ■ native j
magistrate heard > the : testimony on;
both sides and determined \ that both
were wrong and both right, according
to the different points of view. There
fore, instead of rendering a judgment
in favor of either, he ordered that both
be locked up in a cangue with their
heads fastened face to face and kept
there until they settled their quarrel.
The canirue is a sort of cage in which
prisoners are placed | with their necks
looked into a hole in a board. It . re
sembles 'i somewhat - the ' stocks i which
were used for the punishment of male
factors in olden time. When the broth
ers • were | placed S in the canirue I they
were both very stubborn and indignant,
but toward the end |of the second day
they began to weaken, and on the third
day reached a satisfactory settlement
and were released.—Chicago Record.

Hon. Frank Wilkinson, of Skagit
county, who wanted to be a member of
the last legislature badly enough to ran
as a Populist, bat who lacked some 400
votes^of returning this winter because
of still professing faith in Populism,
was recently interviewed by a P.-I. re
porter at Seattle, and among othei
things said:
"If the Republican ' party in the ap
proaching session of the legislature suc
ceeds in passing some conservative and
greatly needed* railroad legislation, 11
will 5 control r the government iof thia
state for the next ton years. A greal
opportunity lie* i before the Repobßcan
members of the legislature. The Re
publican party is In power in the na
tion. It* policy of territorial expan
sion will make the state of Washington
flourish and grow as it never did be
fore. ; Whatever i happens, we I will see
in the next decade an era of immense
development in every branch of trade
and industry in this state.
"Washington will flourish like a
green bay tree under the policy of ex
pansion In the Orient If the people of
China. Japan and India eat one-quarter
of a salmon each per year, it will take
16,000,000 cases \of the Puget f Sound
product. What we want is a salmon
hatchery in : every stream in the state
emptying into salt water. When we
get fairly started in the Orient we will
sell everything we manufacture and
everything we grow to the people on
the other side of the Pacific The com
merce of the Pacific will one day be
greater than that on the Atlantic. h I
sell you, Seattle and Washington are
just entering a period of the most mar
velous growth and development.
■X "Fusion? jjeader than a mackerel.
Silver? That cook, too, will fight no
more battles; free coinage is as dead
as any Chinese cock over which any
Chinaman ever swore In a court of law.
There is no more fusion. The Repub
licans will henceforth do battle ■ with
Democrats. There may be a few of the
middle-of-the-roaders, but they may
kick up as much dust as they please,
for they will accomplish nothing.

Fish Commissioner A. G. Little Asks the
Co-operation of All Interested In Sal
mon Propagation. ";•: r;
Mr. A. C. Little, state fish commis
sioner, is desirous of having as many
people as possible who are engaged in
the fish industry, or are interested in
same, to visit at least one of the state
hatcheries and there, by personal ob
servation, see and understand the prac
tical workings of the artificial propaga
tion system. He would much prefer
to have parties from this vicinity visit
Baker lake hatchery if possible, but as
it is something of an effort to get to
this point, he presumes that other
localities would be preferred and would
advise visiting the Kalama hatchery.
They have at the: Kalama hatchery at
this time over six million young salmon
in the finest condition and believe that
there is not in the United States a
hatchery doing a more successfuf work
than this one. The efficient superin
tendent will be very happy to explain
every detail of the work that is there
being carried out. If a number of the
citizens and others interested in the
fish industry could find time to visit
this hatchery I am sure it would be
productive of considerable good in the
way of getting efficient legislation next
winter for one, if not the greatest and
most important industries of the coast.
Despite the defeat of the fusion ists,
pop corn will still be raised in Kansas.
