Tacoma, Oct. 25. The jury in the
David Latten case, for the murder or U
G. Grant, brought in a verdict of guilty,
and Laltm received a sentence of twenty
years in the penitentiary. After the sen
tence Lattin turned to his counsel and
whispered that it was as cold-blooded a
murder asjwas ever committed. He after
wards gave the details. He met Grant
at Pasco. There Grant showed a $100
bill. At Tacoma he made up his mind
to rob him. lie bought a bottle of
whisky, drugged it and gave it to Grant,
who did Dot drink it but set it on the
dresser, He also procured chloroform, a
billy and a large revolver. After Grant
bad been asleep an hour, fatten arose
and struck him a heavy blow with the
billy, expecting to knock him insensible.
.Lattin also hart chlorform ready to Rsep
him quicf.inteudingto take all the money
of Grant and tell the landlady he was
not feeling well, and not to wake him in
the morning. This would have given the
murderer time to get out oi the country.
The billy broke and Grant awakened
and sprang out of bed. Lattin had a
large revolver in his hand and in the
struggle for the possession of it Lattin
shot at Giant and missed him, then got
away and ran out of the room. Grant
followed to the door, when Lattin shot
through the door, and killed him.
The trial of P. E. Clark for the murder
of Flomuce Dicksrn is in progress. The
evidence is the same as the preliminary

for the paper is not known, but is sup
pnserf to be ?30,000. Boynton takes con
trol November 1. The Globe was already
a phenomenal success and the transfer
iusuica even greater.
London, Oct. 25. The Daily New
prints a aispatch from its Madrid corres
pondent, stating that the Spanish govern
ment has been assured by Chili aud the
Argentine Republic that those countries
are not at all disposed to agree to any
proposal on the part of the United States
ror a zollverein. According to these rep
resentations, the governments of the two
republics named are satisfied that their
people can obtain more substantial, ef
fective and advantageous support from
European tiade and capital than they are
likely to obtain by becoming the mere
satellites of the gnat northern republic
San Francisco, Oct. 25. Liliie Kilsby
a 3-year old child, arrived here on the
overland train to-day lroru New York,
having made the journey alone and
depending upon charitable passengers
ior her meals. She carried a letter from
the general Eastern passangcr agent of
the New York Central & Hudson River
railroad, commending her to the care of
the conductors along the route. No one
met her here, and she was taken in charge
by Police Sergeant Kavanaugh, who
found her wandering about the ferry.
Chicago, Oct. 25. The taking of evi
dence on the identification was resumed
in the Cronm case this morning. The
identification is vey perfect and very
The next matter taken up was the find
ing of the body in the catch basin by two
sewer-cleaner?, who notified the poiice of
the fact. The policemen who were sent
out and assisted in removing the body,
were sworn as to this point, and described
the proceedings. Lawyer Forrest, for the
defense, made the cross-examination on
this head very searching and rigid.
They were followed by Dr. Lewis, the
dentist, who made a set of false teeth for
Cronin. He identified the plate taken
from Cronin's mouth as the one he had
made. He said that a cast for another
set exactly fitted the dead man's mouth.
A recess was then taken.
At the afternoon session. Dr. Egbert
stated the facts revealed by the autopsy,
describing the wounds at great length,
and giving it as his opinion that death
had resulted from them. All of the
wounds were on the head, but the skull
was not broken, except that a small piece
of bone was chipped off at the corner of
the left eye. The stomach and some of
its contents were exhibited, and Dr. Eg
bert said that Cronin was killed within
three hours after having eaten. The
cross-examination of Dr. Egbert devel
oped the iact that none of the wounds
were such as would necessarily cause
death. It was Impossible, he admitted,
to say whether the wonnds were inflicted
before or after death. If death bad re
sulted from the skull wound it would, in
aU probability, have been caused by con
cussion of the brain. The question was
put to the doctor: "Is it not scientifically
tiue that the physicians found no evi
dence in that body that were certain and
conclusive of the cause pf death?" Dr.
Egbert replied: "That is true." He was
of the opinion that death had occurred
through excessive loss ot blood, but there
was no certainty of it, he said.
Dr. Ferkms, who assisted in the post
mortem, thought that death resulted from
concussion of the brain. That organ,
however, was too much decomposed to
afford any iu formation.
Chicago, Oct. 25 It is announced this
evening that important papers are miss
iog from the state's attorney's office, upon
which the county was larjrely dependent
to combat the old "boodie" claims, ag
gregating $250,000. The decuments are
supposed to have been stolen. They are
needed chiefly to light the bills of con
tract ot ex-Wardpn Varnell, ex-Commissioner
Frey and the American Stone and
Brick Preserving Company. The last
named claimant is now represented by
Lawyer Frothmann, who was assistanc
state's attorney when the papers were
turned over to the present incumbent of
the state s attorney 8 oliice. Mr. Long
neckcr has no clue as to bow the papers
disappeared. It is said that if the miss
ing documents are not recovered it may
result in the loss of many thousands of
aol.ars to the county.
LocisviLLK, Oct. 25 A dispatch from
Pineville says: The iorce of Wilson How
ard, the outlaw, worked a neat flank
movement on the forces f County
Judge Lewis jet.terday. The latter
party left the court house early to make
an assault on Howard's camp. How
ard's forces moved around to the flank,
got into the town, took possession of the
court houe, and are holding the to.
Judge Lewis's psrly are camped outside,
and it is expected that they will make au
effort to recapture the town, when a
bloody battle is expected.
Later, The report to-night says that
the outlays did not capture the court
house and that Judge Lewis is gaining
Washington, Oct. 27. A letter was
made public to-day from Secretary Noble
to Coionel J. E. Smith, until a few days
ago chief of the certificate division of the
pension office, from which it would teem
not improbable that those employes of
the pension office who were re-rated are
stated 'to lose their places. The letter
says in pait: ' I deem it to the best in
terest of the service that men who were
re-rated in the bureau should not con
tinue there to exercise an influence in
that direction either by their presence or
council, aud that the new commissioner
should have a better opportunity to cor
rect the evils which I consider of the
grossest character."
Dubuque, la., Oct. 26. A iued of
twenty vears' standing culuminated in a
battle j'esierday near Newhampton, the
county seat of Chickasaw county, two
men bemg killed and several others
wounded'. Thomas Doud, his two sons,
Peter McKeuna, and a number of other
farmers Ussembled at the farm of Albert
Smith to assist in a barn-raising. A feud
has existed twenty years between the
Doud and McKenna families over the
ownership of land. A quarrel took place
yesterday afternoon when, without warn
ins, Thomas Doud shot and killed Mc
Keuna. A friend of the murdered man
then killed Doud after which the battle
became general. How many others were
wounded has not been learned. A posse
of officers was sent out from Newhamp
ton and Doud's two sons and Mulvihil!,
who shot Thomas Doud, have been
brought to town and locked up.
Washington, Oct. 27. Postmaiter-
General Wanamaker in his forthcoming
annual report will recommend that post
offices be established on the principal
steamers that ply between the poits of
the United States and Europe, simuar to
the postal service on the railway trains.
This would greatly facilitate delivery on
both sides of the Atlantic, as the pack
ages could be all arranged for distnbu
tion with the rapidity of the steamer's
arrival iu port.
OMAnA, Oct. 27. In an interview here
Vice President Holcomb, of the Union
Pacific, again makes the statement that
the combination between his road and
the Northwestern is limited to ten years.
He says that under the new arrangement
the Union Paiitic will furnish 50 per
cut of the rolling stock required in the
through service, and no contract with
the palace car company will be affected.
The Union Pacific will continue to run
Pullman cars, and the Northwestern will
continue its Wagner cars.
When asked it the Kansas divssion, or
Union Pacific, was not included in the
combination, flolcouib said that the
Kansas division wa3 eliminated from " the
agreement owing to a deal that is pend
ing with the Chicago & Alton. He stat
ed, however, that nothing definite in tins
direction had been accomplished.
it is reported on good authority that

JonNSTOWN, Pa., Oct. 27. The pros
pects of Johnstown being again under
water are good. Rain has been, frilling
almost continually for the past 3G hours
and a great many of the streets arc al
most impassable to pedestrians.
Knoxville, Tenn., Oct. 27. The state
supreme court has affirmed the verdict of
the lower court in finding John Anderson,
John Barnard, H. Barnard, Elisha Barn
ard and C. Barnard guilty of the murder
of Henry Sutton last January. They will
be hanged November 23. Tbe killing
was the outcome of a feud in Hancock
county, which has long been noted for
DIoody Efijirs. It is believed that this
derision will have a reforming effect on
the county.
Seattle, Oct. 27. The body of David
Pardun, a well-known steamboat man
who so mysteriously disappeared from
the steamboat Slate of Wat7iinglon of
which be was chief engineer, on the trip
between Seattle and Tacoma last Sunday
night, was found on the beach at Alki
Point early this morning. The discovery
was made by O. A. Johnson ol the Alki
Point Brick and Stone Company. The
body was partly decomposed, although
the features were perfectly recognized.
It is supposed that Pardun fell from the
steamer opposite the point where the
body lloated ashore, and that he was
struck by the paddle, olhcrwiso being an
excellent swimmer he might have reached
the shore. Pardim's sou Harry, living iu
Portland, was to-day notified of the dis
Colfax, Wn , Oct. 27. A. Eisley, of
Whitman county, is supposed to have
met with foul play at Sprague as be was
enroule to the mountains on a recreating
tour. At Sprngue,jon tbe 24th instant,
his pocketbook, an account book with
the Second National back of Colfax and
a note drawn in his favor for ?C41 were
found near by the town in the brush.
Hearing no tidings of him bis relatives
are becoming alarmed. Sheriff McLean
dispatched a messenger to his brother,
who lives near Almota. He will go to
Sprague at once.
Dan Candy, who was shot in saloon
at Farming ton by Youug Knsscll, the
son of Charles Rusell, of Walla Walla,
died to-day.
Tacoma, Oct. 27. A number of the
prominent business men of tbe city have
been victimized by a clever swindler
known as Lucius Reynolds, who disap
peared during the past week. He ar
rived iu Tacoma last spring in an "utterly
broke" condition, and sought employ
ment as a carpenter of a contractor noted
for his sympathetic disposition and de
sire to give the needy assistance. Tbe
newcomer soon evinced enterprise by tak
ing contracts on his own account. Han
sen, ieweler, Cohn, merchant tailor, W.
Frazer, cashier of the Tacoma National
back, T. D. Yarnngton and others gave
him coutrtcts, as be took them at lower
prices than other builders. Upon plau.-i-ble
excuses he obtained advances beyond
the work accomplished, and by getting
in debt to material men, was enabled to
escape, upon a pretense of receiving a
telegram Irom a sick witcin New lork
state, with between $0000 and fUUOO.
When last heard from he was at Portland.
Chicago, Oct. 28. At the opening of
the Croma trial this morning, Napier
Morcland, employed iu Dinans livery
stable, testified to the facts of the hiring
of the white horse, as testified to by Di
nan on Saturday.. He said thut when the
horse came hack, at 9:30, he was putiing
and gaye evidence of having been hard
driven. ' Tbe buggy was covered with
sand aud mail.,
Mrs. Coaklin, at whose boose Dr. Cro
nin last lived, was tbe next wituess. She
told at great length and with minuteness
the story of how Dr. Cronin was called
for by a man, who ostensibly wanted him
to go to attend one of P. O'Sullivan's ice
men who had been hurt. This was on
the evening of the murder.. She identi
fied tbe horse and buggy in which be was
taken away as the white horse and top
buggy Uken from Dinan's livery stable
on an order from Detective Dan Cough
lio, one of the prisoners. She also de
scribed (he interview that she had with
P. O'Sullivan on the following day in tbe
presence of a Pinkerton man. O'Sulli ¬
van, she said, confessed that appearances
were against him, but declared that be
knew nothing about the matter, and thut
he did not send for Cronin.
Norfolk, Va., Oct. 27. The schooner
George T. Simmons, ot Camden, N, J , was
wrecked off False cape in a storm last
Wednesday night. When the vessel was
first seen sunk in the breakers by the
life-saviug crew Thursday morning five
men were lashed in the rigging. One by
one the doomed men bad been swept
away in the sea. Last night two were
left and at sunset this evening only one
remained, and undoubtedly he will share
the fate of his ship-mates before morn
ing. The life saving ciews watched an
opportunity to go to the rescue, but the
surf has run too high for the boat to
make an attempt at relief.
A large three-masted schooner, flying
a flag ot distress, is ashore three miles
outside of Oregon inlet. Assistance will
be sent from here.
Tho schooner Lizzie Iloynesi, lumber
laden, from Savannah to Baltimore, has
been wrecked on Bodie's island. The
captain and steward were saved. Five
men were drowned.
Mrs. Couklin's cross-examination
brought out tbe fact that within a few
days after the disappearance of Cronin
Police Captain Sbanck brought Dinan's
white horse and buggy to her house for
identification, and that she had failed to
identify the animal. On the 25th of
May, when the animal was brought by a
reporter, she identified it. Mrs. Conklin
accounted for this by saying that the cir
cumstances of weather and light were
different at these times The reporter
presented the animal under similar con
ditions as when tbe doctor was driven
away. The cross examination lasted un
til late in the afternoon.
Charles Beck, the reporter who drove
the horse to Conklin's house when Mrs.
Conklin identified it, merely testified to
this effect.
Sarah McNeary, who was in Dr, Cro
nin's reception room when the mysterious
man came for him, gave a description of
the individual tallying closely with that
given by Mrs. Conklin.
Dr. Cronin's brother from Arkansas, tes
tified briefly to having identified the Lake
view corpse as that of his brother.
Then Conklin, the saloonkeeper with
whom Cronin resided, was recalled, and
testified to starting out the first morn
ing of Cronin's absence to search for the
doctor. At P. O'Sullivan's house the ice
man was seen, and denied having rent
for him, or that any of his men had been
Philadelphia, Oct. 23. The police
are still anxiously awaiting the arrival of
the picture ot tbe supposed Tascott in
Chicago. It is expected to reach there
to-night. From further examination of
the scars they are convinced he is Tas
cott. A msn who knew Tascott when a
boy says the prisoner looks very much
like him.
Chicago, Oct. 28; A dispatch was te-
ceived by the police late to-night from
tho Philadelphia authorities, saying that
the prisoner now under arrest on suspic
ion of beiDg Tascott has admitted to the
police that he knew Tascott and played
billiards with him in Chicago. This is
taken by tbe Chicago police as fending
t) confirm the belief that the real Tascott
has at last been captuied. The photo
graphs of tbe suspect, sent from Phila
delphia, have not yet arrived.
Johnstown, Oct. 28. Bevond the
washing away of the piers of the Cambria
Iron Company's railroad bridge, no dam
age lias yet been done by tbe flood. The
only public bridge across the Conne-
matigh is m a very bad condition, and it
is to be feared that it will go if the river
continues to rise. Woodvale is consider
ably flooded, but no serious damage has
yet been reported. It has been raining
steadily all day.
Denver, Oct. 28. One hundred r.nd
fifty delegates to the special meeting of
the International Brotherhood of Loco
motive Firemen met here yesterday attcr
noou, for the purpose of discussing the
proposed labor federation question now
agitating the Brotherhood ot Locomotive
Engineers. John J. Hannahan, vice
grand master, with headquarters at Chi
cago, presided. He with the other sdyo
cates of the federation, indorsed the arti
cles presented at Omaha with but slight
modifications. In other words, the indi
vidual labor organizstions will, under the
proposed plan, occupy the same relation
to the whole body of organized labor
that the respective states bear to the
Federal Uuion. After considerable dis
cussion the convention voted unanimous
ly in favor of the question, and appoin
ted a committee to notify the Brother
hood of Engineers of the result of the
meeting. The majority of the delegates
present were from Colorado, New York,
Pennsylvania, Illinois and California.
Helena, Mont., Oct. 28. The man
damus ease was opened to day at Butte.
Judge Knowles, of counsel lor the Re
publicans, scored tbe first poinl in the
legal battle. The writ of mandamus was
brought in the name of the people of
Montana to which Campbell objected,
makmg the point that it should be in the
name of the territory. Judge 'DeWolfe
sustained the objection. The opposition
counsel moved to amend the writ. Know
les objected, and tbe court adjourned till
3 o'clock.
Judge DeWolfe decided, at the after
noon session, that the law provided leave
to amend tbe writ of mandaaius. ' Camp
bell moved to quash the writ. The court
decided to entertain Mr. Campbell's mo
tion and adjourn until 10 o'clock to-morrow,
when tho argument upon tbe case
will be commenced. .
Washington, October, 28. Secretary
Tracy, this afternoon awarded the con
tract lor building two of the 2000-ton
cruisers to the Columbia Iron Works of
Baltimore for the sum of $1,225,000

Transcript: It may he interesting to
know that the first steamboat that was
ever on the Columbia, steamed down from
Vancouver in 1830. Her name was Beav
er. She came from England as a sailing
vessel with all her machinery aboard and
was fitted up at Vancouver. Her first
trip was to the Sandwich islands with a
cargo of wheat and salt salmon. It seems
that the feelings of the natives when they
saw the vessel going against wind and
tide, could be better imagined than de
scribed. The Beaver belonged to the
Hudson Bay company, who used her for
a number of years aud then sold her-. She
is now a pensioner, and lying at anchor

Fossil Journal: Last Wednesday while
Isaac Leabo was returning from the mount

camped in the mountains on Kahler creek,
and turned bis pack horses and saddle horse
out hobbled and belled, and the next morn
ing he could find nothing of the horses,
and could not after hunting three days. He
came on to Fossil where he was acquainted,
got two new horses and started back, taking
Jap Leabo along with him to assist in mov
ing the sheep to the winter range while he
made a diligent search for the lost horses.
The editor of the Fossil Journal goes into
ecstacies over tbe recent rains, as follows:
"The warm rains of this week are a bless
ing to everyone. Tbe farmer is smiling as
he sees his fall sown wheat and ry spring
from the earth and tinge the plowed field
with a greenish hoe. The sheep man glories
that the new green grass is already long
enough to satisfy his hungry herds, and the
cattle and horse men know that in a feW
days it will he good feed for their stock
also. The new-comers and other farmers
are taking advantage of th time for aod
breaking and other plowing, and aU is
"merry as a marriage bell."

Hnlclde Near Prineville. -Ochoco
Last Monday morning Henry Stevens
came to town after the coroner, stating that .
his brother, Emor, had shot and he supposed
had killed himself at the residence of his
father who lives at tbe foot of Grizzley
Butte, aboot 15 miles from Prineville. Dr.
Belknap, coroner of Crook county, went to
the scene of tbe tragedy and found young
Stevens yet alive, though in an unconscious
condition. He learned the following partic
ulars of the tragedy: Emor got np just be
fore daylight and stated that be had not
slept any during the night, and that he be
lieved be would shoot a dog that had been
barking. At the same time he was noticed
writing on a slate. Ho stepped out of the
house and presently a pistol snot was heard.
Other members ot the family who had got i
up by this time went to the door ami saw
him lying about ten feet from tho house.
Ho bad placed the pistol to the right tem
ple and tired, the ball passing through the
front part of the brain, lodging nnder tbe -skin
on the left side of the head. Examining
the slate on which ho had been writing just
before leaving the house, the following note .
was found: "lam of no nse to anybody
here, and I rm too wretched to live any .
longer, so I will end it with my own hands.
Goodbye. Don't fret about one who is not
worth it."
The unfortunate young man lingered un
til Wednesday afternoon, when life de -parted
and the death which he had courted
at his own hands came. He was almost 21
years of age, and waa of rather more than
ordinary ability, waa a constant reader and
well informed on general topics, but for a -nnmber
of years had been of a morose dis
position, avoided society and seemed averse
to strangers. He uever bad any trouble.
and had shown no signs of a deranged
mind, so the cause of his self detraction is
a mystery.
Fighting Fire la the mountains.
While the great and destructive fires were
raging and roaring in the mountain, Harry
Wintler and W. N. Jorgensen at Ike
Klopp's miner's cabin in Grant county, Or.,
were right in the midst of it Tbey say it
was a grand, yet awful sight, to see the
angry flames leap from tree to tree, run op
like lightning, dovonring every branch and
making a fearful noise. Harry gazed at
the strange panarama for some time. Fi
nally, remembering bis partner's cabin
little farther down, he said to his compan
ion: "Jorgensen, let's, go down and save
Ike's blacksmith's and mining tools, while
it is yet time." They went, and fonnd the
cabin surrounded by fire and destruction.
After putting all the tools in a cart and
running it into a tunnel, they returned to
save the cabin, and while - Harry stood
straddle oyer a little brook, getting water
as best he could, a limb of a tfcjp came
down, hit him on the head, cracking tbe
skull, and the blood rushing from the
wound, run over his face and blinded him. '
He called for his partner, who was cut off
by tire, and bare-footed; yet he rushed
through the heap of burning coals, fire and
smoke, burning bis feet dreadfully. Harry
waa helplses, although still conscious, and
it kept Ike busy fighting tire and save both
from a horrible death. They finally reach
ed the other cabin in safety, but the next
morning Mr. Jorgensen's eyes were swollen
shut, aud bis feet full of blisters. Mr.
Wintler was also a rore sight to beholj, and h
there they were, alone in the world, hid
away in the mountains, with no one to help -them
or cook for them a bite to eat; yet
they managed to reach the valley and both
are all right again by this time, but their
adyenture in the mountains on that awful
day, will remain a green leaf in memory's
varigated wreath, aa long as they live.
