.JUNE 29, 1895 CEOMWELL AND THE IEISh The Inter Ocean has the following in reference to the subjugation of Ireland by Cromwell: The proposition to raise a govern- ment monument to Cromwell has been abandoned. The decisive opposition came from the Irish members of par liament. The aristocratic conserva tives were opposed to it on the general ground that the name of Oliver Crom- well stands aa a synonym for that plebeian radicalism which is undermin ing the monarchy and the institutions which cluster about the throne. But decisive opposition came from the rep resentatives of Ireland. Their oppo sition was not based on general prin ciples, but on the spsciflo grievance of Ireland against the great commoner. That unhappy island was never sub jected to such cruel subjugation as from the hands of Cromwell. He did not do things by halves. Ha S9t abDut " conquering Ireland an d he did it ef fectually. The defeat of the monu ment was a clear case in point to prove that there is punishment after death. It was early in the spring of 1649 that Cromwell was made Lord Lieuten ant of Ireland. All that country, ex cept Dublin and Derry, was in open war within the commonwealth. It was late in the summer before he got there, but he lost no time, when once on Irish soil, in carrying on a vigorous war against the. papal party. The first . stronghold he took was garrisoned by three thousand soldFers,and when once within the walls the sword was used without mercy. "This is a righteous judgment of God," he declared, ''on ". those barbarous wretches." The ter ror ofCromwell's name spread through out Ireland. He stayed there until May of the next year, by which time the. conquest of the island was more . complete than it had ever been before. Even the home government, the par liament, thought him a little too vig orous and drastic, so called him home. Tne Irish members were quite excusa ble for being implacable. But from a broad and truly British point of view Cromwell richly deserves all the honor the proposed monument would have bestowed: "Making all allowance," says an impartial histor ian, "for his errors and his failingSj Oliver Cromwell was a man for all ages to admire and for all Britons to honor - in proud remembrance." Carlyle and Macauley did a great work in viudica ; ting the name of Cromwell, and giving him the place he deserves as one of the world's heroes. THE DIFFERENCE. The French Republic is, in some particulars, says an exchange, more - like an empire or a .constitutional - monarchy than it is like the govern ment of the United States. The presi dent is elected by the senate and house of deputies and not by the people. The cabinet resigns whenever it is beaten or fails to receive an indorsement in the chambers of deputies, as- does the caomet oi tne yueen or ungiana wnen beaten in the house of commons. The decoration of President Faure wim xne oraer oi oi. Andrew oy oraer of the Czar of Russia shows another r difference from the people's govern ment as regarded in this country. The - constitution of the United States ex- pressly forbids any officer of this gov - ernment from accepting, without the consent of congress, any office, gift, or of any other country. The president of the United States is the represen tative of the whole people, and neither he nor any of his cabinet officers, am bassadors, or ministers, nor any sena tor nor member of congress, can accept any such title as-that conferred upon the president of France, unless by special act of congress. They are ' denied titles wnicn may be accepted by private Individuals, for the plain American citizen may accept foreign , : titles when conferred uppn him. Tne object oi tne trainers of our constitution was to keep this govern' ment near to the people and represen' . : M t . rro. . every possibility of temptation to change this form of government, They placed this restriction against the vanity and ambition of those who should be elected to office. They made it plain that the officers in this repub lic should be public servants. And . the wisdom of these restrictions has States government has commanded respect by . its powers and not by the recognition of great princes. ' Our ministers have taken their places behind petty princes at the courts of Europe, but none but the most ignorant failed to recognize that ' these men represented the greatest : government on the face of the earth They might come last in the procession at court, but they always have stood . first where it came to the demands they presented from their government. because - tne government ot princes and kings have learned to respect the government ot tne American people.

They had been two weeks en route, and their destination was the Willamette valley. With each wagon there was a large family, who are mi grating to make a home elsewhere from where they have been located. The little daughter of Mr. Wm. Floyd, who lives about five miles from-j Tne Danes, met witn an accident last evening by which she suffered a dislocation or fracture of the left arm above the elbow. She was driving: the cows home, and while passing un der the bridge fell off the horse in some way causing the injury men tioned. Medical aid was summoned as quickly as possible, and the usual remedies applied. A complaint was sworn to last night by George Sandman against Clarence Murray and Frank Heater for assault and battery before Justice Davis. The parties were arrested, and the trial will take place this evening at half past 7 o'clock. The row took place last evening, and the unfortunate com plaining witness presented a very dilapidated appearance, as though he had passed through some very rough experience. Fossil Journal: Ed. Putnam and Rufus Ring, members of the v Fossil Stock Protective Union, went to The Dalles laBt week, having reason to be lieve that two young men who started a short time ago from this county for the valley witn. horses, took along sev eral that did not belong to them. Ed. learned enough at The Dalles to war rant his proceeding to Portland, whether he went oh the cars, with the expectation of intercepting the sup posed theives before they reached their destination. Mr. Ring has returned home. 1 i . BASE BALL. ; The Game flayed in This City Yesterday by the Hut or and Hood River Mines. The game of base ball at the fair grounds yesterday afternoon, notwith standing the fact that the weather was very unfavorable, attracted a fair num ber of spectators, and was watched with interest from beginning to end ing. During the day the wind, blew a perfect hurricane, and it was almost impossible to gauge balls. The Hood Rivers were in good practice, and showed that they understood the game completely. There were two men short of the Duf ur nine, and these had to be supplied by strangers. The Hood River nine consisted of D. Rand, c; J. Castner, p.; W. C. Srranahan, 1st b.; C. Castner, 2db.; C. Luckey, 3d b.; E Irons, s. s.; H. Hansbury, r. f.; W. Wendorf, c. f.; E. Loy, 1. f. The Duf ur nine were composed of J. Keller, c; J. Maloney, p.; George Dufur, s. s.; W. Ragsdale, 1st b.; J. Blacksmith, 2d b.; J. Snecale, 3d b.; J. Staats, c. f.; Willis Hendricks, 1. f.; W. Hendricks, r. f. It was not expected from the high wind that blew in the afternoon that the score could be kept down, and the re sult proved this. At the end of the ninth inning the tally-sheets showed 29 runs fof Hood River to 9 for Dufur. Was it Intuition? A runaway happened at the East End yesterday afternoon that had a peculiar ending. About 1 o'clock an expressman left his team standing in tne street, wniie ne transacted some business in a store. They were not left alone but a few minutes until they followed an intuition, or were fright ened by some object, and took down the street at a break-neck pace, Strange to relate, after running about a block they took a notion and made their way into the saloon of Mr. Skibbe. One horse came into the room, througn the swinging doors; but it is unnecessary to state that be was soon ejected, being not considered a proper oeinsr for such a resort. Little damage was done; but, Mr, Skibbe says, if aside from his usual customers, he is supposed to afford refusro to every wild and runaway ani mal, he will give up the business. Counterfeiter Arrested. Robert Gingles, a resident of Union county, where he bears rather a hard character, was arrested at North Pow der a short time ago by Deputy United states Marshal Pny, oi tsaner (Jity, on a charge of passing counterfeit $1 and $5 coins. He was taken to Baker Citv. where he had an examination before a United States commissioner, and was held to answer before the grand jury. After remaining in jail there a few days, he was brought to Portland, and is now in the count y jail at that place. Gingles is suspected of having beep one of the gang of six masked men who held up a faro bank in the War- shauer hotel at Baker City last winter, and got away with some $1800. Land Transfers.

The Rest my child, M hen the toil and strife are o'er. The Ansel of God. who calm and mili. Says we need fight no more." In Hon. A.- J.- Dufur death met no unwilling victim. For the prist five years, or since the death of his beloved wife, he has been so anxious to j"oin the partner of his earthly j'oys that life has only been made bearable from the fact that he could do good to those around him, and the public in general, by living. Memorials would bo but idle use less, if they merely afforded opportu nity for public expression of personal sorrow at the loss of a friend, however ijreat he might be in mind or deed, i'hey do more,in recounting the events of a useful life they contribute to the formation of a higher order of society. Had I the mind to think as well, and the language to express my thoughts as clearly as had my aged, deceased friend even in his later days (and he lived four score years) I could then, without trembling, attempt to write his obituary. Born of good and loyal stock, son of Major Dufur, who served with General Andrew Jackson at the battle of New Orleans and after which famous gen eral he was named born in New Hampshire, reared among the moun tains of Vermont a state of which the ?oil never composed a royal province, and which was never governed as a territory of the United States until it took upon itself the dignity of state hood he nursed a love or freedom with his mother's milk. ' His father was a soldier; he grew to manhood in troublous times. These facts might account for his being ag gressive in argument, though he was seldom unnecessarily so. Some con sidered this aggressiveness a fault. I would class it as one of tho things that placed him above the ordinary man a virtue that made him a leader among men, for he never argued without first satisfying his conscience that he was right, and if so satisfied it mattered not if he was alone in his opinion. Born in New Hampshire in 1815 he came to Vermont a child. In 1855 he immigrated to Wisconsin; two years after (1857) he was elected to a seat in the Wisconsin legislature, and served his term with honor to himself and benefit to his state; but he had started west and greater prospective honors could not stop his journey to the shores of the Pacific. In 18o9, with -a wife and four small children, he boldly set forth for Oregon to found a home for himself and family in the wilder ness. He came at a time when Oregon needed men of brains, as well as mus cle, and in . J. Dufur both were com bined, and the same indomitable will and the energy that had enabled him to obtain a thorough education by the fire light" in a log cabin (for he never had the benefit of a college education, though few graduates were his equal in a knowledge of the classical authors) enabled him to go into the forest re gion, where Portland now stands, and in what is now East Portland he liter ally hewed out a home. The infant state was not long in rec ognizing the ability of her new citizen, and in the dark, gloomy days of 1862 just three years' from the time he left the legislature of Wisconsin he was a member of the house of representa tives of Oregon, where his experience was invaluable among his associates. His chosen. vocation was farming, and when his term had expired he returned to his farm at Portland, but not to lose sight of state and national affairs. He was one of the organizers of the State Agricultural Society, was editor of the agricultural department ot the Port land Bulletin, and wa3 for years con nected witn tne old Willamette f armer as associate editor. In 1876, when the Centennial of American Independence was cele brated, he .was asrain called from his farm, and asked as commissioner of Oregon to show the world gathered at .f niiadeipnia tnat Oregon Had ceased , to be a wilderness and that her mines, ' forests, orchards, grain fields and fish eries could compete with all the world. That be did it well the records' of im- j migration will attest none could have done better. . But why 'speak further I of his public record 1 The history of! Oregon is the record of Grandpa Du fur. Education to stand among: the learned, dignity to meet and win the j friendship of those in whom dignity and education were allied, and with all i those social qualities that make a man j respected by all, he did as much for the welfare of his adopted state as one man could accomplish, and, in recog nition of his work at the Centennial, the people of Oregon presented him with a handsome mounted cane and an elegant watch, made from the gold -specimens which he exhibited at Phil adelphia. These tokens of good will he prized above all his earthly belong ings, for he sought not wealth but honor. His tnree sons A. J. Dufur, jr., mayor of the city of Dufur; hi. a. Du fur, attornev-at-law of The Dalles, and Hon. W. H. H. Dufur and his daughter Mrs. Arabella Slusher, widow of the late Thos. H. Slusher, of the United btates land orhce had re moved to Eastern Oregon and settled on 15-mile creek in Wasco county in 1872. Feeling the approach of old age he positively refused further political Conors and joined nis children, accom panied by his aged wife, who died in 1890, "sustained and soothed" in the hour of her departure by the presence or ner beloved bus band and children The main interest of his declining years has been to advance the prosper ity or tne city wnicn bears tne family name, and no public meeting or good cause was complete witnout tne snow- white beard and venerable, though smiling, countenance ot uranapa Du fur, beaming with good-will from the presiding officer s chair. He was precise in all his actions, and in none more so than in his prepara tions for death, selecting the pall bearers from among those nearest and dearest to him. They were his three sons, his two grandsons Douglas and George Dufur and C. P. Balch. He also chose his triend. Squire A. J. Brigham to deliver his funeral sermon, going so far as to select the text from which the sermon should be preached. It was: ii timothy rv: 7, 8. 7. "I have fought a' good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith." 8. "Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day." And that his mind was clear, and his judgment good to the last, all who lis tened to tne aoie and eloquent sermon in which Mr. Brigham paid his last respects to his departed friend will at test. The bell that tolled the warning that the funeral procession was mov ing from the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Slusher, found every business house in town closed and every person, old and young, either in the church, awaiting the arrival of -the remains, or on the street marching with slow and solemn step to the music of the Dufur Cornet band, which lead the funeral procession. After the services in the church the remains were accompanied by the members of his family to Port land to be laid besides those of his wife in Lone Fir cemetery. Grandpa Dufur's life was a unristian one. In his household tnrougno jt his days nought but Christianity was taught. I well remember a quotation which he took from an eloquent Chris tian writer and oft-repeated: "If no morning is to dawn upon the night in which he sleeps, then sorrow has no consolation. Neither veneration nor reverence is due the dead if they are but dust. Unless we survive, the ties of birth, affection and friendship are a delusive mocKery. in closing i win complete the quotation from the same author: "Ii his life is as a taper that is burned out, then we treasure his memory and his example in vain, and the latest prayer of his departing spirit has no more sanctity to us, who must soon or late follow him, than the whisper of winds that stir the leaves of the protecting forest, or the mur mur of waves that break upon the complaining shore." A FRIEND. . After s Long Absence. Mr. A. Bettingen. sr., returned yes terday morning from an extended tour of different countries of the world. He left last December and visited his brother in South Dakota for some time, and then went to Europe. After spending some time in Germany he made the tour of Italy, Palestine and a portion of Turkey. Satisfying him self with foreign countries' he returns to The Dalles more contented than ever, and will remain here until the final summons come. America is the best country he has 6een yet. and the little city of The Dalies i3 better suited to him than any place he has visited during his long sojourn abroad. Mr. Bettingen enjoyed the trip very much, gathering valuable information in reference to the manners and cus toms of different peoples, and studying the institutions of the governments. ADJCDGED INSANE. Strange Hallucinations of a Victim of Insanity. This morning there was examined before Judge Blakely a man named David Williams, who has become in sane on the question of wealth. He is aged 42 years and was born in England. For the past two years he has done odd jobs around the city, cutting wood, etc. Dr. Hollister was the examining physician, and the man imparted to him the information in confidence that very recently his grandfather, aged 13 J years and his grandmother at the age of 120 years, had died in England leaving him a fortune of ten hundred thousand million pounds. If the doctor could get him out of this scrape, he said, he wouldn't mind giving him a million pounds. While imparting this strange tale, he cunningly watched an opportunity, when he was not watched. and jumpetf out of the open window and ran down the street. Judge Blake ley and the janitor, Mr. J. FitzGerald, followed in close pursuit, and overtook him after he had gone about a block. It was a hard run, and the fellow fought desperately . for his liberty. After he was brought back he was placed in the county jail. On ochor subjects except that of his immense wealth Williams appears sane enough: but on this question he is undoubtedly demented, and his attempt at escape shows that a careful guard has to be kept over him. He was adjudged in sane, and was taken to the asylum this afternoon. CONSTANT DEVOTION. After Twenty Tears Separation Two Lovers are Cnitcd as Husband ana Wife. The marriage of Miss Spense to Mr. F. W. DeLentmen furnishes a romance in real life, which had a happy ending. Mr. DeLentmen was born in France, and afterwards removed to England, where he became acquainted with Miss Spense. Their acquaintance ripened into love, and they became engaged. But Mr. DeLentmen was not possessed of sufficient of this world's goods to I support a wife, and he left the old j country .to try his fortunes in the new. I This was twenty years ago, and after : landing in New York he came west, until he finally settled in Grant county , in the sheep business. Life to him i was a rugged, up-hill road until re- cently, when he found himself I possessed of a comfortable competence; j but during all this time he did not forget the true-hearted English girl, and constantly corresponded with her. Last week she arrived in town after a journey of six thousand miles to join her life with that of Mr. DeLentmen, after patiently waiting twenty years. Now she will take a journey 200 miles into the interior, where she will make her home amid different surroundings from those of the peaceful jottage which y" she left far behind. Hut she joined the man she loved, and en vironments will never make the heart grow weary. CIRCUIT COtJKT. Proceedings In Law and Equity on the LaBt Day of the Term. J. B.

Wp find the following gem going the rounds of the press, without credit: "Remember this young man. Be careful what you say about a woman's character. Think how many years she has been building it, of the toils and privations endured, of wounds re ceived, and let no suspicion follow her actions. The purity of the women is the salvation of the rage, th e hope of greatness and the redemption of mm. Wipe out her purity and the man sinks beneath the wave of despair, without a star to guide his life into the chan nel of safety. Think then before you speaK, ano rememoer tnat any nog can root up tne iairest flower tnat ever grew; so the vilest man can ruin the purest woman's character." Myrtle Point Drowning. Stephen Vanderhoof was drowned in the river at Myrtle Point, Thursday afternoon. He was swimmimg from one point to another, while at work endeavoring to float a scow, which had gone aground on a sandbar, and be came exhausted, and was seized with cramps' He was seen struggling and going down and was promptly rescued, all efforts at resuscitation, however, failing. He was 25 years old, well liked and a member of the order of Woodmen, the local lodge of which buried him Friday. ' Election ot Officers. The following officers for The Dalles tent, K. O. T.

The weather has been gen erally clear, with quite hot sunshine in the afternoon,- The maximum tem perature ranged from 63 to 90 deg.; the minimum ranged from 43 to 64 deg. except south of the Blue mountains, where it ranged from 36 to 50 deg. These temperatures were from 4 to 8 deg. higher than the preceding week. CROPS There are few correspond ents who report even a fair condition of the crops except fruit, while the majority of them report decidedly poor prospects. The absence of rain has been very injurious to all grain crops. The temperature has been free from any extreme heat, and it has been due entirely to the cooler weather that the conditions are as good as they are. A few extracts from the report of the correspondents may convey a better idea of the true state of affairs than a summary could do: "Ridge way, Wasco County Tender vegetation injured by late frosts; very dry; crops will be light; sheep taken to the mountain ranges; grass on range drying; up." "Happy Padge.Wasco County Crops are looking pretty well, but the grass hoppers are destroying lots of grain." "VVascOjSherman County The pros pectj for grain in this county are very poor; dry winds and no rain have done the damage." "Condon, Gilliam County No one will have a full crop in this county. The ground is dry, and there is no erowtn to the grain crop. The grass hoppers have done considerable dam age." "Lexington, Morrow County The past week has been much warmer than heretofore. The grain fields are en tirely void of any green thing with the exception of a very few fields next to the mountains. The fruit crop looks very encouraging. Sheep on range in prime condition," "Heppner, Morrow County Rye near town averaged three-fourths of a ton to the acre; no improvement in prospects." "Gooseberry, Morrow County Some say that the best of our land will not give ten bushels to the acre. Grass on the commons almost gone, though stock is yet in good condition." "Athena, Umatilla County Fall sown grain damaged by shrinkage fully ten bushels to the acre. Spring grain in worse condition than last week. On the whole, crop prospects anything but encouraging. Corn and potatoes need rain. Fruit all right." "Weston, Umatilla 'County Wind from north and very drying. Fall- sown grain on summer fallow needs rain to make it fill well, but will make a iair crop, anyhow, spring grain still drying up." "Telocasset, Union County Grain burning badly. Squirrels doing dam age. Range dried up. Hay crop will be light." "Cove, Union County Rain badly needed; crops suffering. Hay crop light. A great many acres are burn ing up, and will amount to nothing without a rain. A good rain would yet make a fair crop. Fall grain is yet in fair condition." "La Grande, Union County Hay on the bottom lands will be an average crop. Grain on the hillsides is drying up. Fruit is good." The above reports cover the main grain-growing "sections of Eastern Oregon, and it is seen the conditions for grood crops are wanting:. In Wal- ' Iowa county the crops are all better and east of the Blue mountains the ir rigated crops are all right; elsewhere they are poor or fair. The fruit prospects are good; in fact, in the more purely fruit sections they are excellent. The week closes with excellent pros pects for all crops west of the Cascade mountains and the reverse to the east of them. The climatic conditions at the pres ent time are such that rain is not probable for at least the next four or fiye days; that the temperature will continue to rise, becoming very warm by Thursday. B.

He says he was placed in a boat and tied with baling wire, and that the kidnapers traveled with him Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights, secreting them selves during the day time, he being then tied to the bushes. "Thursday afternoon he claims to have been lef in the boat at a point near Old's ferry, below Weiser, The oars in the boat were taken away and the boat pushed off in the middle of Snake river. He floated along down the stream in a helpless condition, strueffiiner desperately to iree nimseii, He succeeded in loosening: his hands near tne Muntington railroad bridge at 11 o'clock last night. . The boat nearing the shore he jumped in the water and swam to land. He says he reached Huntington about 12 o'clock very mucn exhausted. He notified Sheriff Campbell, who went to Huntington this morning:. He brought back with him the wire with which Eldredge said he was fastened. "Eldredge limps when he walks, but there are no evidences of violence on his person. His story is corroborated, however, by his appearance when he entered Huntington. He believes a deep-laid scheme had been developed to put him out of the way in view of the facts in his possession concerning tne Konan murder." Guilty of Manslaughter. The trial of John Hawthorne for killing Carpolis, the Indian police man, was given to tne lury in tne U. s, district court in Portland Saturday afternoon, and, alter tnev nad been out four hours they returned a verdict oi euiity ol manslaag-hter. This case has been on trial several days, and was of especial interest to citizens of this county because tne young man was for manv vears a resident of The Dalles. and is now indicted for burglary com mitted in tnis city, several witnesses from this place were examined, and Hon. E. B. Dufur, one of our leadin? lawyers, was one of the attorneys for the defense. Mr. Hawthorne was verv fortunate in escaping with so light a verdict, very lew ot our citizens ever thought it would be less than murder in the second degree, and some con sidered that first degree was certain. Base Ball Visitors, The visit of the Dufur base bailers yesterday to the city was a very pleas ant event. All the members of the club are well known to our citizens, and they received a courteous welcome to The Dalles. In this connection, as yesterday was base ball day, the Hood River nine were guests of the city. These were gentlemanly fellows, and as base ballists have few superiors in the northwest. The names of both clubs appear elsewhere in this issue, and we are satisfied that they will have no regrets regarding their visit yesterday. Straightening the Line. The work of changing the line of the O. R. & N. Co. road across the big side slide at Reed's ranch is progress ing favorably. The new tracks is about 80 feet further down- toward the river than the old one. - In excavating for it a pair of trucks from the baggage-car which was carried away in the slide were discovered. Huge boulders, as big as boxcars, were car ried down in the slide, and a whole ranch was buried, The new line will be a great improvement over the tem porary line, being straighter and s better grade, . - YEARS OF INTENSE PAIN. Dr. J.H. Watts, druggist and' physi cian, Humboldt, Neb., who suffered with heart disease for four years, trying erery remedy and all treatments known to him Belfand follow-practitioners; believes that heart disease Is corablo. Ilo writes: "I wish to tell what your valuable medi cine has done for me. For four years I had heart disease of the very worst kind. Sev eral physicians I consulted, said It was Rheumatism of the Heart. It was almost un endurable; with shortness of breath, palpita tions, sevoro pains, unable to sleep, especially on the left side. No pen can de scribe my suffer r,. .1..,. i".. i ' ft ings, particularly 'C'et- lis- sHmonths of those four weary years. 7 DR. J. H. WATTS, I finally tried Dr. Miles' New Heart Cure, and was surprised at the result. It put new life Into and made a new man of me. I have not had a symptom of trouble since and I am satisfied your medicine has cured mo for I have now enjoyed, since taking It Three Years of Splendid Health. 1 might add that 1 am a druggist and have sold and recommended your Heart Cure, for 1 know what it has done for me and only wish I could state more clearly my suffer ing then and the pood health I now enjoy. Your Kervino and other remedies also give excellent satisfaction." J. H. Watts. Humboldt, Neb., May 9, '04. Dr. Miles Heart Cure Is sold on a Positive Guarantee that the farst bottlo will Denelit.

Since the Regulator has reduced freig-hts on the Columbia river to sea' board the interior has been attracted to The Dalles as a shipping point, and not the least interested nas been a large portion of Gilliam county, which has hitherto had its market at Arlington. Wheat, at The Dalles, is Quoted 10 cents higher than at Arling-' ton, and wool has always commanded three or lour cents better price per pound, inese tacts are Known to tne farmers of Gilliam county, and they realize the importance of a road direct to The Dalles. Active measures have been taken in.this regard during the last few days and a route surveyed. From Fossil the road will go to a point a mile north of Mayville, and from there to the John Day river, about twenty-five miles distant from the initial point. The grading for this distance will be easy, except at one point where rocks will have to be r& moved, and Gilliam county will see that the road is completed to the John Day. This stream will have to be bridged, and they are willing to stand half of the cost of this. It is thought to construct a steel bridge over the stream, but a wooden one would be much cheaper, and would answer the purpose. After ascencing from the river there will be no diiHcent grad ing to this city, as it will then enter the plains of Sherman county, where a road can bo built almost anywhere. The trip to The Dalles and return can be made in three days, and the better price .for wheat 'and wool will more than reimourse farmers for the extra time than that in going and coming from Arlington. There is no doubt that farmers of Gilliam county are in earnest about this matter, and this summer it may be confidently expected that the road will be under construc tion and nearing completion. The Grasshopper Plague. From Mr. W. N. Wiley, who arrived in town from his Antelope sheep farm last Saturday, we learn that grasshop pers are making inroads on crop3 on Trout creek. They come in countless numbers, and, after a few hours, leave growing vegetation in a condition sim ilar to the effects of a destructive fire. Not a green blade appears above the surface, and . the stalks of wheat and other growing cereals are levelled to the ground. While en route they darken the atmosphere, moving in such great numbers. They swim streams, and if a few thousands are drowned it does not seem to lessen the number. The vigor of their on slaughts does not appear to diminish by reason of the death of a large num ber. They have unlimited resources on which to draw, and by intuition ap pear to follow good military tactics. The Antelope valley is so far free from them; but the farmers are dreading the approach of the plague. A heavy rain, perhaps, would stop their prog ress; but at this season of the year this is unusual, and cannot be ex pected. ' . Strange, If True. Sunday last as an Oregon Central freight train was passing Blodgett, Benton county, at the rate of 15 miles an hour a horse being: ridden by a young lady named Miss Mackenzie, I took fright and threw the lady, but her foot caught in tbe stirrup and she was being dragged bead downward. Conductor James McErlane, seeing the accident, leaped from the top of a boxcar and rushing up a steep em bankment headed the horse off, grasped the bridle and released the lady's foot from the stirrup and stood her on her feet. She thanked him kindly and he had just time enough to catch the tail-end of the caboose as the tran rushed by. This is the substance of the story that came by way of Cor vallis, and unless McErlane marries the girl there may be some doubt as to the correctness of certain alleged sit uations.
