we bave read of general ability causing
death It may be accounted for on ac
count of the extreme age of tbe person,
and if be had been younger be might
bave died of general debility: "Thomas
Thompson, an old, old man, who for
many years bas worked around O'Brien's
hotel, died of general ability last Sunday
afternoon. He was a native of Sweden
and in tbe 81st year of bis age. Tbe
funeral took place yesterday."
Here is a warning to ' strong-armed
young men and also to slender ribbed
girls. Miss Lnlu Smith, an Indiana
fanner's daughter, was taken ill with
what was supposed to be pneumonia. A
physician was sent for, and, on examina
tion, found that she had sustained a
fracture of the seventh r'.b. Then she
admitted that she felt something crack
on Sauday evening when lier lover gaye
her a parting bug. She bad endured
great pain for two days, and next time
will wear some sort of a rib protector.
W. H. DeHaas, of Tacoma, who guided
tbe Frank Leslie party daring the recent
explorations in Alaska, confirms the re
ports of other Alrskan explorers that there
is good placer mining, but he also says:
f'The diggings do not pay when tbe ex
pense of living and of working is consid
ered, and the fact that work is possible
on only sixty days ' out of the year. In
tbe best diggings tbe result is only ten
ounces a day to each man. Most of the
miners up there are barely making wages.
A man earns every grain of gold that be
gets in Alaska." Deflaas speaks highly .
of the natives on the Yukon delta, among
whom ne uvea lor eleven . months

Statesman: A man darned Lightle,

.: Baker Blade: A gentleman from the in
terior arrived in the city the other day
and registered at tbe Warsbauer, after
which he proceeded to take in the- sights
of the city. Imbibing somewhat freely
in "tanglefoot" tbe aforesaid gentleman
repaired to his room at the Warsbauer in
the evening with not altogether "a' clear
bead and hjs mental faculties running
somewhat at random. Disrobing he pro
ceeded to extinguish the electric light be
fore getting in bed by blowing it out, but
it wouldn't blow worm a cent, i ne gen
tleman remarked to a friend the follow
ing morning, that "those lig-ta in the
Warshauer were the d dest things he
ever seen." Innocence is bliss.
The Dayton Chronicle has this to say in
reference to the alleged discovery ot
mines on the Tukanon: "It is barely pos
sible, but not probable, that a body of ore
may be found in the Owsley claim, but it
lacks a great deal yet from developing
anything that is of value to either Mr.
Owsley or the country at large. There is
a streak of a mixture of limestone and
other kind of rock running across the cut
in which the workmen are digging,which
contains a small quantity of tale, and if
there was any mineral present it would
indicate that supply of ore was inex
haustible. But alas, in this case, accord
ing to the decision of the prospectors, tbe
ledge and tbe mineral, in a paying qual
ity, are conspicuous by their absence."
Affairs in the neighboring state of
Washington are not being managed yery
satisfactory to tbe public, as tbe follow
ing from the columns of the W. W.
Statesman will show: "The fearful and
wonderful way in which tbe state has
been governed is held to' necessitate an
extra session of. tbe legislature at an
early day. The statement is made that
$50,000 is due to citizen; and cannot be
paid because of technical objections,
There is tbe university muddle, tbe mi
litia muddle, the agricultural college
muddle, the geological survey muddle,
tbe granted . lands muddle and various
other muddles all arising from incompe
tence, carelessness or scheming. . So tbe
brethren think they want another session
and additional appropriations.
Colfax Gazelle: Fruit growers of the
Palouse are on nettles. Some apricots
were received from California a few days
ago and they were fairly alive with what
is known as the apricot scale, under
which were myriads of insects. These
scales are not easily seen with the naked
eye, but a magnifying glass makes them
as prominent as a bird's-eye view ot tbe
Rocky mountains. The cause of the
alarm is the belief that the insects may
invest the native iruit, and in order to
guard against such danger Mr. J. B. Holt
telegraphed Wednesday to Fruit Inspector
Jesse at Walla Walla, requesting him -to
take immediate action towards preventing
tbe insects from ruining Washington
A very sad and distressing accident oc
curred at Moscow, Idaho, on Wednesday,
of last week. Mr. 1j. P. Schuh and bis
men had started over in the southeast
part of tbe city to move a bouse. His
two little boys went along with him, and
were on the wagon, which was loaded,
when Wilbur, the youngest, aged 4 years,
fell from the wagon, the large wheel pa3S
ing directly across bis body, breaking the
spine and crushing him so badly that- be
only lived about twenty minutes. Tbe
little fellow gave one shriek, and imme
diately became unconscious until the
heart ceased to beat. Surgical aid was at
once called, but was of no avail. The
sad occurrence has cast a gloom over the
many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Schuh, the
latter being frantic with grief.
Albina Courier: William McDonald
was committed to the county jail because
be could not furnish bonds in tbe sum of
$400 for his appearance before tbe grand
jury. Saturday night while intoxicated
he met a woman in front of the Conti
nental hotel, to whom be used - insulting
language. Robert Gourley happened
along at .this time and told McDonald to
allow the woman to proceed, whereupon
McDonald turned and struck him a bard
blow on the nose, knocking him down.
He then kicked tbe prostrate man in tbe
ribs and walked off. Gourley was picked
up by Mr. Floriu, proprietor of the Con
tinental hotel, and taken to a room. Dr
Holuomb was called. Several frightful
wounds were found on his face. ' His
nose was broken and four ribs were
fractured. McDonald was arraigned and
held to appear before the grand jury.
He could find no one to go his bonds.

reached their destination. A railroad 4s
needed to Siuslaw. It would mean cheaper
rates and quicker time. The delays in
shipment mean a loss of several cents a

There is a kick on the rates charged on
the portage at the Cascade Locks. The
Baker City Democrat is urging a reduction,
and says: The state of Oregon bas not
built the portage at the Cascade Locks with
the intention of its becoming a money-making
concern, or one that will pay for itself
in the course of three or four years. It
was constructed as a means of relief to the
people of Eastern Oregon from tbe exist
ing high transportation rates, and with the
completion cf the road and the establish
ment of a line of river boats to co-operate
therewith the object sought was accom
plished. The portage can, and should be
economically operated, and if the receipts
are sufficient to meet tbe necessary expenses
and in addition pay a small rate of interest
fund to meet extraordinary expenses, the
great purpose of the road will have been
realized. Even if tbe road should be oper
ated under such tariff regulations as to sim
ply protect it against loss, the benefits de
rived by tbe people of Eastern Oregon
through its existence will be sufficient
recompense to tbe state. Tbe portage road
should not be considered as a money-making
concern and the present schedule of tariff
rates should be materially reduced.

DISCOVERED AT LAST.
The Famed Blue Bucket nine Said
to be Amone tbo Keeent
Tbe mountains are full of men. The ex
citement is spreading and wagonloads of
eager men are coming into Harney City
daily, from distant localities. The wildest
rumors are anoat of great banks ot gold
dut being found. It is with the greatest
care that the news gatherers can separate
the true from tbe false reports: The dis
coveries are rich enough without any ex
aggeration. Gold has been found in paying quantities
in three gulches on Trout creek. On tbe
Harney City side rich claims have been
located on Soldier creek, Battlesnake, Cof
feepot and Cow Creek.
It is authoratively stated that the long
lost Blue Bucket mine has been discovered
in what is jknown as the Peter Mortimer
canyon northeast of Harney City. It ap
pears that an old prospector named White
has beed tracing the old emigrant trail
through from Snake river, and found the
graye of a woman who died a little oyer
day's drive from the famous Blue Bucket
gold discovery. He has . been about six
months on the work and since finding the
grave has made diligent search in this way
from it. About ten days ago he put a man
on the road to California with orders to
change horses and make 100 miles a day.
White himself packed bis things and start
ed a few days later. The rider told at one
of his stopping places that his boss had
panned out two dunces of gold from ten
pans and had sent bim for friends in Cali
fornia. The parties receiving this informa
tion at once hastened to Harney City and
began hunting for the discovery. On Sun
day morning there was a rush for the Peter
Mortimer canyon. Gold was discovered
there and it is thought that this is a rich
mine. Notices were written and pasted
on stones and men on horseback rode a race
for the first claims. Bill Catterson, Ike
Miller, Bob Cope land and Scotty Hayes
scattered their notices down the canyon
and began prospecting. As expected the
precious metal was found in large quanties,
but at this season there is no water to work

Vicksburg, Miss., Oct, 29. By the
burning of tbe fine steamer Oliver Bierne
at Mil liken 's Bend lauding at an early
hour this mornirje-, thirteen lives are
known to have been lost, and it is feared
more. Tbe boat laid up at tbe landing
abont midnight. She bad quite a num
ber of cabin passengers, and over 200
"deckics" and a number of men, en route
to tbe various levee works. There was a
lot of cotton to be landed and loaded
Tbe mate bid trouble with the roust
abouts and a number of tbem quit work,
after which the mate bired white men.
This enraged the negroes, who made
other threats against the mate and boat,
At 3 :30 o'cloek an alarm of fire was sud
denly sounded, and before any one was
aware the boat was aflame. Tbe blaze
originated on the lower deck, from what
cause is not known, and, communicating
to tbe dry cotton, was soon burning with
great fierceness. The crew of tbe boat
were aroused, and, with the passengers
wno were awake, gave tne alarm to tbose
who were asleep. A rush was immedi
ately made for tbe forward part of the
boat, and many got off in safety, but that
avenue of escape and others were cut off,
and the unfortunate passengers arid crew
were forced to plunge into the water.
Tbe crew of the doat displayed commen
dable coolness, and every effort was made
to rescue tbose who had not reached tbe
shore. - Chief Engineer Ed Burd, laun
ched the yawl of tbe boat, and be, with
other men, succeeded in picking up many
of the struggling unfortunates in tbe
water. Some, . however, were beyond
reach, and were either burned to death,
or sank beneath the water to rise no
more. Wben tbe alarm was communi
cated to the people of Milliken's Bend
the bank of the river was soon crowded
with tbe villagers, who assisted in the
work ot rescue and hospitality, and
threw open their homes to the survivors.
message from Milliken's Bend gives
the following names as those who per
ished in the disaster:
Two children of Dr. Worrall. of Baton
Rouge; Sam Entnckec, son of Valentine
Jiintricken, of New Orleans; two cham

Adams, of Omaha; Mrs. Woolridge of
New Orleans; Mrs. Frazer's nurse; five
cabin boys and a number of roustabouts.
A 4ichost Story.
Jacksohvill, 111, Oct. 29. Late last
night a watchman and three other em
ployes of the Jacksonville & South
eastern railway saw one of tbe big
locomotives glide out of tbe roundhouse,
cross tbe turntable and started down the
main line. They ran after it, but it was
going so fast they did not dare to try to
board it, tbougb they saw there was no
one on it. When tbe mam line was
reached tbe engine whistled and dis
appeared down the track at a terrific
peed. Fisgah was wired to clear the
track. A north-bound freight was side
tracked as tbe headlight ot tbe wild
engine came in view. The truant
whistled, the bell rang, and the engine
stopped directly in front of tbe station.
The railroad men watched tbe engine
frem the moment it came in view. They
saw no one get off, and wben they jumped
on board tbe throttle was found closed
and steam was op sufficient to run twenty
miles farther. The engine ran the twelve
miles in ten minutes. Tbe railroad men
believe that the ghost of an engineer re
cently killed on the road was in the cab.
It. was his favorite engine.
