The de tails of what appears to be one of the most mysterious and villainous murders ever committed in this country came to light at Rockford,a town forty miles from this city, to-day. ' William Thurman, A L. Richardson and Mrn. Thurman are missing, and indications are that Thur man was murdered by bis wife and her paramour, who then took to iligbt Richardson is a worthless, drunken fel low, whose children have been a charge upon the county, but be succeeded in gaining the affections of Mrs. Thurman who bud always been considered a mod wife. Thurman protested and ejected Rxbardson from his bouse, but the woman took his part, and allowed him to visit her whenever Thurman was absent. There appears to have been a great deai of strife between husband aua wife, and his life was threatened, for be recently ook c lunsel with friends relative to the steps he oupbt to take to protect himself, but concluded that it was better to avoid the publicity of courts. As Thurman had not been seen for gome time, Mon day two of bis brothers went to bis place, Ttiity found it deserted, the doors barred from the lnsiae and the windows nailed up. the fugitives evidently having eS' caped through a small bole in the floor in one corner of the kitchen. In a cup board wag found a bottle of strychnine, a portion of which bad been used. Wag on tracks led away from the house. These were followed and found to avoid the regular road, passing off through the timber. Tbey were evidently made in the night time, for they passed over small trees and ialien timber, ihev led down to a small stream, down which they fol lowed for about eighty rods. Then thev emerged and took to the Spokane road, where all trace was lojt. lburman s brothers, hoping to find their biother somewhere in the neighborhood, kept their own counsel until today, when they came to Rockford and reported these facts to the officers there. Action Upon the Colombia Kiver Im provement BillH. Washington, March 13. Secator Dolph's bill to complete work on the Co lumbia River and Senator Mitchell's bill for a boat railway around the dalles have both been made special orders, and will be considered in connection with the lump appropriation bill for the improve ment of the Mississippi River. These bills will pass, the senate, bnt the house will not take any action on tbem. It will be impossible to secure a favorable report rom tbe bouse committee on rivers and harbors, but it is a good thine; to have tbe senate committed to these great measures being done under the contract systems; that when the time come3 the house will look with favor on contracting these great works, and tbe senate will be ready to take favorable action. In tbe bouse rivers end harbors committee Rep resentative Hermann moved to put in an appropriation for a portage railway around tbe dalles. This was defeated. The only members voting for it were Clarke. B'anchard and Mr. Hermann. Then Chair man Blancbard called another to tbe chair and moved to appropriate the sum secured by Mr. Hermann for continuing tbe work on t-be cascades and applying it for a portage railway around tbe dalles. Only two members of tbe committee, Blancbard and Clarke, voted for this motion, .and it consequently stands where it was before. . Tbe cascades will receive tbe appropriation, but there will be no portage railway around tbe dalles. It has been a hard fight for tbe Oregon representative, because the op position shown bv Pennover, and bis communications to tbe committee have made it very bard for him to contend against tbe large Democratic majonty on this important committee. Heparated by the Flood. Louisville, Ky., March 18. Among the residents of Johnstown, Pa., at the time of tbe flood disaster was James Agnew, his wife and three children. On the day of tbe flood Agnew was at work in tbe Cambria iron mills, while bis family was at borne two miles down tbe Lvelley. The flood came, many in tbe mills were 'drowned, and tbe bouse ol Agnew was destroyed and bis family scattered. Tbe husband and wife made an unsuccessful search for each other, and finally gave tbe other up tor dead. Mrs. Agnew was sinking in despair when there came a letter from this city. It was from ber brother, John Pntcbard, a machinist at tbe Louisville & Nashville railroad shops. He bade bis sister come to mm, and her mother sent her means to come. Here she lived quietly, grieving for her lost husband. A few days ago a letter reached tbe Pritcbard bouse and it bore tbe Btamp of Allentown, Pa., and it told Mrs. Agnew that her husband was alive. When the flood swept over tbe iron works Agnew was carried away in tbe wreck. Down tbe river he floated until be lost consciousness for a time. When be reviyed rescuers were lifting blm from a tangle of wreckage and dead bodies. He lay in a Red Cross Society tent for many days, unconscious, shat tered in mind and in body. When be recovered be could find no trace of bis family. Finally, through the inquiries of a priest, it was learned that the Pntchards lived in Louisville, and Ag new is now restored to bis family. Kiver and Harbor. Washington, March 20. Tbe river and harbor bill is now completed and is ordered reported to the bouse. Repre sentative Hermann secured great results for Oregon. His state aggregates more appropriations than any state in the Union, with tbe exception of New York. The great canal and locks at tbe Cascades of the Columbia receives nearly $500,000 and is placed under tbe contract system for completion, tbe secretary of war being authorized to contract for the whole work, for which $1,310,000 is estimated, exclusive of tbe sum now allowed in the present bill, wbich becomes immediately available. Tbe same language is used as applies to the works at Galveston, Balti more and Philadelphia harbors and the great Sanlt Ste Marie canal on the lakes. General Poe stated to tbe committee that ths government saving on tbe "Soo" canal will be $1,000,000 on the estimate of $6,000,000 besides completing the work at once. Under tbe contract system it if expected that ships can pass through tbe Cascade canal and locks of the Co lombia within two years. Mr. Hermann made a gallant and very persistent as well as discreet struggle for the concess ion to bis state. He firmly insisted that if like privileges were bestowed on any other great works of the nation, it must now be understood that the Cascade locks should be counted in. He stubbornly resisted any other arrangement. OUT OF THE RIVER AND HARBOR BILL. This policy will hereafter take tbe Cas cades cnnal out of the river and harbor bill, and Mr. Hermann thinks in too next congress me permanent works at tee dalles and Ccliio rapids can be under taken and ' also placed under contract. nuless tbe senate should come to tbe rescue now when tbe present river and harbor bill reaches that body. No separate bill can possibly pass the house. in view oi the immense sum which is now given Oregon in tbe eeotral Mil. Tbe items as now secured in the bill for Oregon are as follows:, Columbia River at the Cascades. $435, 000; Mouth of the Columbia, $300,000 Coos Bay, $210,000; Yaquina Bay $75, 000, S'Ulaw River, $10,000; Tillamook Bay, $15,000; Lower Willamette and Co lumbia, $50,000; Coquille jetty, $35,000 Upper Coquille River, $5,000; Yambili River to McMinville, $3,000; Upper Co lumbia and Suake Kiver, $150,000 Willamette River to Eugene City, with a commencement of the special work at Oswego, Clackamas Rapids, Corvallis, Independence and ualem, $30,000. Tliey Hoboed the Priest. Albany, Or., March 19 Frank Wilson and J. C. Baker, tramps, aged 20 and 16 were arrested near tbe depot this morning for robbing Father Metayer, a Catholic priest. Tbey knocked at his door at o'clock this morning, and ou being ad mitted, struck the priest down and ran sacked his house. They secured $12 in coin, a watch and several minor articles and escaped. Father Metayer, thoroughly frightened, ran in bis night clothes to the depot hotel, where be begged protection. Tbe city marshal was at tbe hotel and im mediately started after the ruffians. Tbe priest was given clothes and escorted home, and is now in the hands of a phy sician. He received a cut oyer the head from the butt of a revolver, and has other bruises. He is conbdent that be would have been killed had be not escaped. The tramps attended tbe service in tbe church tbe night before, no doubt to be come acquainted with tbe premises, as the priest's house adjoins the chapel. The grand jury todav indicted the boys for burglary. Tbe town was thrown into the wildest excitement this morning by the news, as Father Metayer was well kaown and universally liked. Young; William's Health. Berlin, March 19. Prince Henry, tbe emperor's brother, left Berlin tbis after noon to join tbe kaiser at Hubertusstock, Tbe empress will follow them. Tbe semi official announcement is. made that the rumors of the emperor's illness are great ly exaggerated and that his condition is atisfactory. Nevertheless the phvsicians advise bim to take some rest. For tbis reason it is probable the emperor will not receive tbe various distinguished foreign visitors who are expected soon. Prince Henry will, it is understood, be deputed to represent the emperor. Tbe foregoing semi-omcial statement has only served to increase the feeling regarding the em peror's physical and mental condition, which is alleged by popular rumor to be alarming. According to newspaper re ports tbe emtieror will remain at Huber tusstock until the end of tbe month. Meanwhile tbe political crisis is at a standstill. All sorts of rumors are cur rent as to what transpired in the cabinet meeting at which tbe rupture occurred between Chancellor von (Japnvi, Minister Sedlidtz and tbe emperor, but no au thentic statement of the proceedings is yet obtainable. No doubt is entertained that the emperor has undergone a severe mental strain within the past few davs. It is argued be must be' seriously affected or he would not yield to tbe advice to take a vacation at tbis juncture Hitherto be has ignored all appeals to relinquish work on account of physical illness or mental strain. Attacked by Prisoners. North Yakima, March 20 While giv ing the prisoners their.' supper - in the county jail this afternoon. Deputy Sheriff Dilley was set upon by Burglar Milborn and Norger Levering, and a desperate struggle ensned, in which the officer re ceived a number of severe scalp wounds from a s!ungsbot ia tbe bands of Lever ing. He finally broke away and drawing bis revolver, fired one ineffectual shot, after which he drove the prisoners to their cells and locked them up. Lever ing is a noted forger, and has left bis tracks not only in this state but in Oregon and California. Tbe crime he is now be in? held tor is obtaining $500 from the First National bank of tbis city on forged drafts. He was caught in New York and it cost tbe state nearly $1000 to ap prebend bim and bring bim back for trial. Since the attack this afternoon he is feigning insanity. A School of Fu Seals. Seattle, March 20. While the Michi gan, which arrived today, was steaming along tbe coast, off Gray's Harbor, Cap-, tain Graves spoke the sealing schooner Umbrena, of Victoria. Tbe schooner was in tbe midst of a school of fur seals going northward. Tbe .water seemed fairly alive with them. Tbey were swimming about and jumping out of water by tbe score. Tbe Umbrena was drifting along liesurcly, having six small boats ont, and tbe crew had good success shooting tbe seals. Captain Graves says the schooner will have a heavy catch. She is tbe same sealer wbich was damaged during a storm off tbe coast a few weeks ago, and sbe bad to put in at Victoria for' repairs'. Tbe other sealers have gone north, having given up all prospect of a catch down along the coost. v ' She Preached His Funeral Sermon. Port Townsend, Wash, March 19 A man named Woods, aged 68 years, died in Hazel Point, Hood's Canal, last Satur day night. Tbe daughter of tbe deceased was present at tbe death and tbe burial of ber father, and there being no minister, she preached the funeral ceremony. More than fifty neighbors were present, and all testily to tbe pathetic and heart rending scene of tbe daughter consigning the mortal remains of ber parent to tbe grave. lxxtt From a Sealer. Port Townsend, March 19. Three seamen, who were lost from a sealing schooner, name unknown, arrived at Neah Bay last night, after being out in tbe ocean for two days in an open boat. Tbey were bunting seals when a heavy fog descended on tbe water and tbtir vessel was lost from sight. They stopped at Destruction lighthouse and secured enough provisions to last until their ar rival at Neab Bay. Ingram Sentenced for Iife. . Albany, Or., March 18. In the In gram murder case, in which Frank In gram was charged with murdering bis brother, Henry Ingram, near this city last October, tbe jury returned a verdict of guilty of murder in tbe second degree. The prisoner will be sentenced to tbe penitentiary for life Monday at 1 o'clock. The Ingram brothers bad been in dispute oyer the will of their deceased iatner, and it was over tbis that tbe crime was committed. The trial has occupied three days. lord Salisbury s Beply. Wasaington, March 21. The nature of tbe reply of Lord Salisbury to the last note from the state department relative to a renewal of the modus yivendi for conduct of the seal fisheries of Bebring sea is known to nobody in Washington except the president, the British minister, and a very few officials of tbe department of state. Even the Republican members of the senate committee on foreign rela tions and the bouse committee on foreign affairs, usually inloimed promptly oi any new phases in the negotiations, are in ig uorance of the contents. Tbe conciuxlon drawn from tbis omission on the part of the administration to inform them upon the subject is that the note is conclusive as to the main point of controversy, viz., the extent of protection to be afforded seal lite in Bebring sea. It is believed that, if Salisbury had acceded to tbe re quest ot tbe president for a renewal of the modus vivendi, tbe fact would have been immediately comcaumcated to tbe senate. The belief of tbe senators is he has made the note a vehicle for tbe ex tension of his argument that tbe thirty mile limit of prottclion area proposed by bim is amply sufficient to meet all the necessities of tbe case. One senator de clared emphatically it was "only a play for time on the part of tbe British gov ernment." His theory is that govern ment will ultimatelv consent to a renewal of the modus viyendl. . The American Fleet. San Francisco, March 21. It is ex pected tbe United States steamers Tork- toten and Boston will arrive soon. They will proceed to Mare Island after a short stay in this city and await orders from the navy department. Jnst where they will go is not known, and any statements tbey will perform certain duty is merely a surmise at tbe present time. There is a likelihood of their going to tbe Behnng Sea, and it is barely possible tbat tbey will remain at Mare Island for a long period exactly as the Baltimore bad dene, which is still at the naval Station. The Pensacola is looked for in this city about April 1, She will also proceed to the island, like all tbe vessels tbat arrive to have their crews transferred. She swill then go out of commission . and usual survey will be made to ascertain bow much money will be needed to repair ber, There is no doubt tbat the navy depart ment will increase the fleet of vessels in Behring Sea tbis year over any previous season. .Every ettort is being made to get the Bear away, but it will probably be tbe middle of April before she makes start. Crashed In His SKull. Walla Walla, March 21. Two Nor wegian brothers named Zabiynack set upn and nearly killed their old mining partner, Terrick, -at Athena,' Umatilla county. Terrick was tbe treasurer of their company. Some time ago tbe broth era drew the company's money from tbe bank and were ariested on complaint of Terrick, but were discharged. Last week Terrick and a hired man -went to Athena, Learning their whereabouts, the two brothers armed themselves with clubs and quietly visited their sleeping place, with tbe intention of committing murder. Tbe hired man escaped with slight in juries, but Terrick ' was unmercifully beaten, bis skull being crushed in. He was taken to a physician's office, and is now in a critical condition. The Zabj - nack brothers made their escape, and there is no clew to their whereabouts. Spreenels Surrenders. Pailadelphia, March 21. Official an nouncement tbat Claus Spreckels' refinery has gone into the- great sugar combine with the Franklin refinery, of Harrison Fraser & Co. and the refinery of E. C. Knight & Co , may be' expected in a few days. : Tbe preliminaries are about fixed and all tbat remaics to be arranged are the minor details. Tbe terms are not yet known, nor is it unoerctood exactly bow Spreckels was influenced to go into combine be had fought with so much vigor. He is credited, however, with making about $3,000,000 in tbe deal over and above tbe cost, ot bis big lehnery in tbis city. An Unfortunate Sleeping; Ptaee. San Francisco, march 21. Alwin Vuiliungen. a German Baker, fell over board from the steamer San BafoA yes terday and was drowned, in full view of tbe several hundred passengers tbat crowded the boat. While the accident was unavoidable in a measure, tbe drown ing was the. result of tbe lack of disci pline aboard the boat. Vnilfungen went forward on the lower deck and took seat on the starboard rail, throwing an arm around one of tbe iron davits wbicb swing tbe lifeboat, to steady himself. In that position be went to sleep. The sleeping man turned suddenly back ward, as one does when nodding, lost bis balance and went over into the water. Indians on a Spree. Umatilla, Or., March 21. Consider able excitement was caused here today by about fifteen Umatilla Indian braves, on a drunken spree, ngnting among mem- selves. Tbey kidnaped an old Chinaman, who works around the depot, and took him about a half a mile toward the river. Tbey would probably have drowned bim, bad not a wbite man Heard tits cnes ana rescued bim. Tbe Indians around here get all the whisky they want from some unknown source, it would do a wise act for some United States marshal to come here to look into tbe matter. Fastening; the Chain of Evidence. Adelaide, Australia. March 21. The police here have, identified Deeming, alias Williams, as tbe author of a robbery committed here in 1888. At that time he was living in Adelaide nnder the alias of Ward; The day alter tne robbery Deeming, accompanied by his wife and two- children, sailed for St. Helena, en route to Cape Town.

He was aed 56 years, and came from Germany to America in 1850. He has been a hard drinker, the past month indulging to excess. His death resulted from heart failure.

Sural Spirit: Before it is quite time to begin spraying tbe orchards it would be good idea to look into the subject a little and see what is necessary and what can probably be accomplished. Whether we get any valuable result from spraying will depend upon whether tbe work is done well. We have got beyond tbe idea that single spraying will insure a perfect crop, and beyond the idea that we are , spraying for a single purpose. The proper aim is to combat two enemies, insects and disease at the same time, and the solution nsed should consequently be both an insecticide and fungicide, and the-spraying should begin before the blossoms are opened, and then repeated four or five times at not longer in' tervals than three weeks. This will carry the fruit pretty well through the growing season and past the danger of injury from scab. Not ouly does spraying give a larger crop, but it insures larger and handsomer fruit, which will sell for more money. Salem Statesman: Bert, the 9 year-old son of Thomas Davidson, a farmer living on Howell prairie was almost fatally in lured by a stump-puller Tuesday evening.

The sociable given by the Ladies' Aid Society of the Cougregatiooal church at tbe huuse of Mrs. Geo. Morgan, last evening, was a decided success. Besides being a very enjoyable affair socially, it was a thing of much interest in the fact of being the most complete collection ot the work of the artists and amateurs of The Dalles which has ever been gathered. There is much that is very creditable to the talent and in dustry of our art-workers. Tbe last three years have shown a marked improvement in the work of our amateurs. They paint with a freer brush and a finer appreciation of nature's subtler moods. Perhaps there is nothing which is more indicative of ad. vanre than tbe presence in a number of the pictures and sketches of an itmiunkaM anrl a delicate handling of lights and shadows not observable before. There is not such an ' opaque and fainty effect as was shown iu former pictures. Everywhere may be ob served a better appreciation of what among artists is termed valnes the distribution of the light and shade so as to correspond to the relative planes of the picture. Evi dently in this respect there has been some good instruction with power to inspire en tbusiusm. We cannot here undertake to discriminate to the praise or dispraise of certain teachers among us, any more than we can allow ourselves to select for special praise the pictures and sketches of certain individuals whose progress and attainment has been a wonder and an admiration to us. Good prominence was given to the work w. .u.,ui, . i, a n aihk whii, ui very considerable talent, by giving his pictures and sketches a room by themselves.

' ' I Much credit must be given to Mrs. Loob- head and Mrs. Barrett for the assistance they gave Mrs. Morgan in the tasteful and artistiu arrangement of tbe various articles. . There were only about fifty persons pres ent at. the sociable. A number, it is pre sumed, were kept away by tbe wmd and . rain whiph prevailed in the early part of the evening.

' What is genet ally considered to be the most weird and picturesque lighthouse un der American control is that on Tillamook rock, built on a surf swept crag of basalt about 30 miles south of the mouth of tbe river.

(he distance from this city, wbich is the nearest base of supplies, make it a matter of delay,' danger, difficulty and expense.

Tbe first day, in effecting a landing, the foreman of the working party was drowned. - Four dsys after four work men with hammers, drills, bolts, proyisions, fuel and a stove, and canyaa tent, managed to get on the rock, and a few days later five men more got there, and the work begun. It took three years of unremitting labor and great expense. It is built of stone, brick and iron, and ia inaccessible for months at a time. Some night the whole thing will be swept away. ' Albany Herald: Wm.
