The river is about on a standstill, An adjourned meeting- of the com' mon council will be held this evening. Mrs. B. E. . Moody, of Portland, is visiting Mrs. W. H. Moody of this city. . ine run oi saimon last mgnt was very fair, and our wheelmen hauled in quite a number. The city jail had no occupants last night, and the recorder's business was very light this morning. The Columbia Packing Co. of this city shipped a number of cattle this morning to the Cascade Locks. - Mr. J. H. Sherar, who has nearly completed the new road around the Currant creek hill, is in the city. There were two carloads of hogs shipped today from the stockyards of B. E. Saltmarshe & Co., of this city, to roruana. Hon. Robert Mays returned yester day trom a trip, tnrougn tne southern part of the county looking after his - stock interests. jn early one tnouaana people were present at the closing session of the Christian Endeavor convention at Salem on Sunday night. J. W. Howard, county commissioner of Crook county and T. S. Logan, a prominent stock man of that county, - are in the city on their return home from Portland. Mr. Hiram E. Mitchell, son of Sen ator John H. Mitchell, is in the city today. We acknowledge a pleasant call. He is in business with his father . in Portland. Upon petition of 537 citizens of Ben ton county the county court in session there last week ordered that the sheriff be allowed only one deputy at $o0 a month, the - county clerk only one .deputy at $30 a month and the recorder ' a deputy at $10 a month, just half the jormer allowance. The delinquent tax roll has been re turned to the sheriff with an order at tached that a levy be made 'upon the ' real property of those who have not . paid their taxes, and that the same be sold to satisfy the unpaid taxes. The sheriff is allowed sixty days in which to accomplish this. The special train from Yaquina Sun day morning almost ran over a deer standing on the track a few miles this side of Summit. The sleek creature bounded off into the bushes barely in time to escape being caugnt by tne cow- catcher. It appeared fascinated by the Approaching engine, and only moved wnen tne engineer began vigorous - whistling. . ' The people in the Willamette val ley who worked to get a fish ladder in the falls at Oregon City, will not be pleased to learn that the work is all undone by strewing nets in the river below the falls so it is almost impossi ble for fish to get over. Tne law es tablishing the ladder was not more tfaan half made, or it ' would prevent .this netting of fish." -The committee on International Delegates at the recent meeting of the . Christian Endeavor societies at Salem reported the following names, as those .chosen in committee, to represent the Webfoot-Endeavorers at the great - Boston convention in July, towit; Rev. -George E. Hawes, of Portland; A. R. Ruthford, of Oswego: Miss Lena Holt, of Eugene; Anna Smith, of Hood River .and Anna Thompson, of Portland. Salem does not like the appellation that has been erven it since the eon. teal over the branch asylum has begun The Statesman says: "It is to be re gretted the attorney for the board in the so-called branch asylum case so far - forgot himself as to refer in his brief to the beautiful, generous, hospitable CaDiifll - City as the .'Salem hog.' Such Htartiinz arsrument CO never yet made an inroeessjon upon a judge of the court." Exchange: One -.constantly runs across curious bits of superstition Just now Seattle is talking of the hoo doo in a cane. The stock was made in the Deer Lodee penitentiary and from there sent to Seattle. Already one of its owners has had bis wages cut, an other lost CltSO on tne street at mgnt, another was put on trial for stealing a diamond, and three who baye carried the stick are now serving sentences at Walla Walla. : The annual meeting of the Oregon floneers will be held at Portland June 4th. William Galloway, of Yamhill county, will make the annual address, and T. T. Geer, of Marion county; the occasional address. Mrs. Robert A. Miller, of Oregon City, a pioneer daughter, will prepare a paper for the -evening meeting, treating particularly of woman's experiences in crossing the plains and in pioneering. William JEapuB has been selected as grand mar shal and Rev. D. B. Gray, chaplain. ' - The play tonight will be "The Light ning Rod Agent or "Paradise Lost." Mr. Senter Payton will take the lead ing part, and this is a sufficient guar anty that it will be well rendered. He will be supported by the members of the company, every one of whom is an artist. This play is full of fun, and as Mr. Payton will be the comedian, there is no 'doubt that it will amuse and entertain all who attend. ond and Union streets, formerly occu pied as a drug store. Ice cream and cake, 15 cents; with strawberries, 25 cents. Dan Maloy, of Lake county, had the misfortune to lose 150 head of sheep one night last week. '. He had just fin ished shearing,- and concluded to dip before lambingr. It rained hard all night, and the sheen were chilled to death. Mr. E. C. FitzPatrick, stock in spector, arrived in the city today from Antelope. He says so far as he has examined the cattle in this county they are in a healthful condition, and there is very little scab among young sheep. In the vicinity of the Warm Springs reservation . crickets are becoming quite numerous, and the Indian farm ers are fearful that this year will only be a repetition of former ones, when their crops have been entirely de stroyed by these insects. The Aid society of the Congrega tional church will give an apron sale and sociable at the house of Mrs Wil son on Union street Friday evening. May 17th, at 8 o'clock. An art gallery will be on exhibition of interest to those who value the things of olden time. Mr. E. H. Merrill, who was a dele gate from this city to the Sunday school convention recently held in Portland and the meeting of the so cieties of Christian Endeavor in ses sion at Salem returned last night. He was tne correspondent for tne TIMES - Mountaineer during his absence. The run of salmon has not been very good during the season, and very few have been caught. Last year they be- fan to crowd the river about the 2d of une, and continued until the season ended. There is yet time for a good run before tne close season tair.es place, and fishermen are hopeful. One week from next Sunday The Dalles Orchestra Union band will give an excursion and picnic to the Cascade Locks on the Beyulator. Round trip tickets can be purchased from any member of the bam1 for 50 cents. Ar rangements, have been made for amusements on the grounds at tne Locks. According to the computation of Mr. Henry Garnett, the well-known statis tician, the wealth of the United States in 1880 was $43,642,000,000, or an aver age of $870 to each inhabitant; in 1890 it was $62,600,000,000, or about $1000 to each inhabitant; and at both dates it was greater than the wealth of any other nation. He goes on to show that 5 per cent of the total wealth of the country is owned by millionaires; ' 27 per cent by people worth from $100.- 000 to $1,000,000 each; 37 per cent, the largest percentage, by those worth from $1000 to $10,000 each; and 6 per cent by those owning less than $1000 each. THE CURRENT CREEK HIIX. The Sew Rood Being Condtracted Overcome the Obstacles to Travel in That Fart of the Country. In a conversation .with Hon. Robert Mays this morning, who has just re turned from a tour of the southeastern portion of the county, and who spent some time with Mr. J. H. Sherar and his graders on the new road over Cur rent creeK hill, we glean several im portant facts in connection with this lmDrovement. That portion of the route from Orant county to The Dalles has always been the most ditncuit, and freighters have been forced to camp there for days before they could haul their loads over tne tocks ana ciay, which rendered it almost impassable. For some time the necessity of a new e-rade at that DOint has been apparent, and the merchants "of .this city sub scribed $1000 for the work. - The peo ple of Antelope have also made liberal donations for the same purpose. A few weeks ago Mr. J. H. Sherar, with a force of eighteen men, began the task of making a road around the hill, and has so far succeeded that in two weeks he will have as good grade at that point as there is any where. He has had eighteen Indians at work, and has expended about $1300. Sunerintendins- the grading himself. he has camped on the ground with the men, and supervised every iooi mar, has been graded. He has given his time and labor free, and is determined to finish the work he has begun. When finished the grade will be over four miles lonsr. and will have been a more difficult piece of road to have constructed than that down the Tygh hill, which cost over-$4000. The two most important reads leading from this citv ar6 those to Crook county and to Canvon Citv. and on the latter of these is the Current creek hill. This road is of the greatest importance to citizens in the southern portion of the countv. who are isolated from The Dalles, and have no other way than this to reach a market. They are heavy taxpayers, and should receive sufficient consideration from the county court to have a sum appropriate to finish the work begun. Mr. Sherar is a thorough road-builder, will give his time and labor until the grade is completed, and is determined to fin ish the work he has begun and to make it as good a road as there is in the county. . ! known of the deceased prior to hi arrival in Baker City, about a year sinnA. Ha had but little to sav regard in? his naat life, other than that he served for three years in the United States marine hosDital services He was a native of Maryland, and Mb only relative is a brother, who lived in Cin cinnati. Ohio. The deceased bore his sufffirinir with the greatest fortitude. and during the 10 aays between the day of the fatal shooting and the hour that death relieved him not a word of eomnlaint was heard to nass his lips He remarked that he bore no ill will against anyone, and was at peace with. all.

A Visit to the FubUc Institutions Located at the Beat of Government. Salem, May 14, 1895. Klitor Tivts-M ot.isibk.: After the Christian Endeavor con vention had adjourned your corres pondent remained over in Salem and visited some of the state institutions. Among other things in the state house, with its many interesting feat ures, we were shown the original copy in manuscript of the constitution of the state of Oregon. Visiting the dome of the building we had a very nice view of the city and surrounding country. We visited the penitentiary with quite a number of delegates, and were shown through a part of the. building. At the asylum for the insane we had the pleasure of a short visit with our old friend and townsman, Ed Patter son, who is an attendant here. The asylum for the blind, we learned, contained seventeen inmates, and were shown the' books, maps and other; things used in training those who are afflicted in that way. The children all appear happy and go about the . house and grounds in what seems to be a very remarkable manner. We were favored in hearing and seeing a little girl read from a book prepared for the blind. We were then taken to where the children are making hammocks, and were shown specimens of their work. Here we met Charley Finch, a Accident at The Locks. C. C. Hobart, superintendent of the Oregon state portage railway at the Cascade locks, has reported to the state board concerning a serious accident that occurred there on the 14thr In letting the cars down at the lower in cline, the wire cable gave way where the coupling link, attaches it to tne car and a box car was precipitated into the river. No one was injured, but the car may prove nearly a total loss, as the current is so strong it is next to impossible to tow it to any point where it can be removed from the water with out great labor and expense. The in cline is quite steep and great caution is used, but the accident is one oi tnose that cannot be foreseen. The superin tendent fails to state the contents of the car. Prospectors at Burns. A Burns dispatch of May 12th says: A party of eight Portlanders are camped south of town enjoying a much needed rest, having come over the road from The Dalles. Thev are well out fitted with teams, wagons, tools, arms and provisions, and are Intent on pros pecting and finding gold. The object ive point is north and west of Harney lake. The party is under the leader si in of Charles Devine, an oid pioneer and prospector, whose two sons are with him. Devine was chief wagon- i master for the Major Stein expedition i in 1861, and has a thorough knowledge ' Jjhns u oi the topography or the rdarney coun try.

This prep aration also produces a vigorous growth of the hair, and gives it a beautiful lustre and youthful appearance. Rec ommended by physicians, clergymen and scientists.

They refuse to give the name of the members, and de clare that as they drop out of this world their names will be learned. The officers of the society embrace a master of ceremonies, director of cor tege, deviser of new. methods, connois seur of pol&yos, soother of conscience, guardian o"i the knife, tostmistress to the dead, composer of epitaphs and halo modiste. The play of Joshua Whitcomb at the opera house last night attracted a very good audience, and the wit of the unique character was fully brought out. Mr. - Payton has firmly estab lished his reputation as a comedian In this city, and his name is alone suf ficient to attract a full house. This evening tne beautiful and romantic Irish comedy in four acts, entitled Kathleen Mavonrneen," will be put on the boards, and this should be an unusually attractive play. The play will be followed by the laughable farce of "Dodging for a wife." "Ths Ugbtaing Rod Agent." There was a good audience at the opera house last hight to witness the rendition of this thrilling drama. The parts were all well taken, and Senter Payton in the dual character of John Scranton detective and ICG. Hooper lightning rod vender, could not be ex celled. He is an artist in any role he may take, and will always amuse and entertain an audience. Lucy Payton has that naturalness in representing the rollicking school girl that makes one pleased with her acting. She enters into, the personation with so much spirit that leads the audience almost to believe they rre witnessing a scene from real life instead of an ' artistic delineation of a stage character, The other members of the troupe are good, and keep up the interest in the play. To-night the "Old Homestead" will be played, and this will unques tionably be an attraction that will fill the open house. . i The Newport Conference, The Eugene Quard says: "The conference of the business men of tbe valley towns with the engi neers sent to Newport to make a thor? ough examination of the harbor, as to the feasibility of making further im provements by extending the jetties seaward, was very successful so far as known, but what their decision will be remains to be told when their report is made to the war department. The statistical reports furnished from the different towns no doubt made a deep impression on the minds of the engi neers and will greatly influence them in favor of future improvements of Yaquina harbor. One great drawback to this enterprise is the small volume of water in the Yaquina river, which is lacking in force to do the scouring of tbe channel after tbe jetty worn is completed. This is tbe opinion pri vately -expressed by Major Post, but may not be conBioered in their final decision. The general" impression formed by all who conversed with th engineers is that a favorable report will be made to the war department." Religious Insanity. ' An exebansre has the following1; "Newton Blagg, a rancher of Chat- toroy. Wash., sometime ago observed that his wife, who takes a deep interest in religious matters, was losing her mind. A close watch has been kept on" all her movements in the hope that ber aberration of mind would prove only temporary, but she steadily ber came worse. A few days ago she start led ber husband by declaring that she had been commanded by the Lord to offer up their youngest child for sacri fice, and she wished an altar prepared, where she would slaughter the inno cent child to appease the wrath of tbe Almighty, The thoroughly frightened husband at once came to the conclur sion that delay woulc" be dangerous, and, leaving bis wife guarded,. came in and swore to an insanity complaint. She will be examined, and if found in. sane will be sent to Medical Lake," Excursion to Multnomah Falls, The Redmen's Social club of this city will give an excursion to Multno mah Falls on J nne 2d, stopping en route at Oneonta Gorge a cleft in the mountains several hundred feet high and only a few feet wide and return ing to the pionio grounds at Cascade Locks at or near the nopn hour, where tbe afternoon will ie spent. Parties from Heppner, Arlington and Grant will join the excursionists at Tbe Dalles, and from Portland will meet the train at Multnomah Falls. This will undoubtedly be the grandest pic nic of the season, and the opportunity to view the great natural phenomena oi Multnomah rails and Oneonta Gorge will be an opportunity of which an snouid avail themselves. Water Bonds Sold. I. H. Crnthers was in the city yester day examining the acts of the council regarding the disposal of Pendleton's water bonds, says the Tribune. He represents the firm of Morris & White head, of Denver. Portland and Rut land, V t., and -before he left last even ing he had closed a business transac tion which transfers the bonds, orig inally purchased by a private individ ual and held as collateral by the Com mercial National bank, of Portland, to the above named firm. The bonds were issued June 1. 1887, for $30,000, bear a 7 per cent rate of interest paya ble semi-annually, and were to run for 20 years. Interest to the amount of $1030 is due in June. The Baker County Homicide. The Baker county coroner's jury found that the killing of John Preston by Thomas Goldwortby was deliberate and unjustifiable. Samuel Rowe, who witnessed the shooting at the Virtue mine on the night of May Its testified that after Preston had fallen some of the men suggested that Goldwortby be lynched. Preston said feebly, "Boys, don't do that; he must be crazy," Goldworthy was in a very bad humor the evening of the shooting, and seemed determineed to provoke a quarrel with Preston. But little is Wheat is worth 38 cents a bushel at any station iq the Palpuse country free on board cars. We have conr; traoted half a million bushels of the coming crop at 40 cents per bushel-, and are contracting all we can get at that price. Our offer to contract It at that price has been .-the means of largely increasing the acreage in the Palouse country, over what it other wise would have been. ' This increased price for wheat is going to be a won derful help to the Palouse country this fall, and times will be much better than they were last year." Mining; in Qrant County. We copy the following from an ex change: "On the John Day river and pn Dixie creek, near Prairie City, con siderable placer mining is being car? pied on and some very rich quartz dis? ooveries have recently been made on Dixie creek) about six miles north of Prairie City, Two ov three quartz mines were worked on Dixie creek a few years ago, but were for some rea son abandoned. They are now being reopened and give promise of being valuable properties. At Canyon City, near the John Day river, a great deal of work is being done in the old pla cers, and there are also some promis ing quartz developments in that vicinity." Farmers Encouraged. Farmers throughout the northwest are encouraged py tjie advance in wheat, and beleive there will be some profit in harvesting the coming crop. Sales about Walla Walla have lately been made at 38 cents per bushe, which is 10 cents better that was at the beginning of the seasqn. Tbe present price is said to allqw a small margin over the cost of production. When the market was at its strongest last week, a large amount of wheat was let go iq Eastern Oregon and Washington, and some qf this grain is now finding its way to tide water.

Gray and crew went up to Huntington Tuesday, whither they were sent by Jacob Kamm, of Portland, to take the steamer Xiorma down to Pasco. This is a great under taking and will be watched with inter est by all steamboat men in the north west. Compared with it. the br in cine of a steamboat down over the Cascades is an easy task. The Norma, which is a large sternwheeler, was built at Huntington in 1891 by Mr. Kamm, and was intended for trade between Hunt ington and the Seven Devils territory. She made only two trips and was then laid up. Mr. Kamm finds that he can put her to good service on the lower Snake, whereas the boat is useless 'at Huntington. At any rate it is worth making the trial. The Snake river, between Hunting ton and Lewiston, is at the low stage of water, an almost continuous stretch of rapids and eddies. The river is navigable at all stages only from Riparia to Le wis ton, and as Lewiston is 200 miles below Huntington, it will be seen that Captain Gray has no easy task before him, The Norma is being strengthened in every possible manner for the trip and win proDaDiy mage tne start the last of this week. Should she make the trip successfully she will be run In op position to the O. R, & N, boats on the lower Snake, ZUK0. nKLLEOAR In San Fiandsoo, May Tth.

The Statesman had advices from Washington relative tq the qpening of the Nei Perce Indian reservation which quote the commissioner of In dian affairs as saying that he does not know when payments will be made. Continuing, he says: "I presume that It will require from sixty to ninety days to write and record the patents and have them ready for trans mission to the agent ' for delivery. Action upon the remaining one-third of allotments has been ' suspended awaiting the returns of certain sur veys which United States Deputy Sur veyor Briggs was instructed tq make )ast summer. I have no Information as to when ' such returns will pe re ceived. Taking everything into oqn 8ideration, I do not believe it possible to open the surplus lands in tbe iNex Perce reservation to settlement within the next three months, and It may be that a much longer period will be re- ? uired to complete the necessary pre iminaries," Stanton G.

Biker O'y Dem crt. The murder of James George and the wounding qf I.

This has proven trne. On Tuesday last about midday, a boy by the name of Colton, living in the vicinity of the scene 01 tne murder, was out on tne hills searching for a magpie's nest. He came to a heavy undergrowth or large bush and in separating the branches with his hands came upon a rifle rest-' ing, point upward, in tbe lories 01 a limb. Looking still father be found the dead body of Chamberlain, The suicide had evidently rested the rifle on the branch, with the muzzle pointed at nis. head, and nulled the trlererer. An examination of the body showed that the. bullet had entered the head just above tbe left eve. tearlnsr away tne whole top of the head and scattering brains and hair over the ground near where the body lay. The finding of tbe body was made known to residents of Sparta and yes terday an inquiry was instituted ac cording to law. Laqd Transfers. May 13 Dalles City to Chas, Alli son t lot 4, block 34.
