HE USED TO SET , JOAQUIN'S COPY "Why, I romembor thid article when 'it was flint published," remarked John Michell an he picked up a copy of the Glacier last Thureday and glanced at the clipping from the Can yon City Kagle, containing a story of one of the early Oregon newspapers published 40 years ago, and edited by Jbaquin Miller. Michell used to sot Joaquin Miller's manuscript when that ecoentrio man of fame was the Canyon City corre spondent for The Dalles Mountaineer. W. II. Newell was then editor of the Mountaineer, that pioneer of Eastern Oregon journalism which went to the boneyard last summer, and John says the contributions of the old poet be came so coarse that Editor Newoll was forced to dispense with Joaquin's ser vices as contributor. "I was sorry to see the old Mount aineer close down," remarked Mr. Michell. "That paper had many able w iters as its editors in the days gone by. Many of the men have since at tained literary fame. Among those who at one time furnished copy for the Mountaineer were M. Abrey Ang low, later a literary character in Calif ornia; Henry Miller, who afterward was correspondent for the Alta Calif ornia, the pioneer journal of the Golden state. Miller died in Mexico, where he went as a contributor to the colums of the Alta. Lieutenant Hen ry Catlin, one time recorder for the city of The lalles, edited the Moun taineer, as did W. H. Newell, another abl) writer." Jonh Michell was a compositor on the Mountaineer when but a boy. Typesetters in those days received 75 nmitu nnr thniiMAiid ems. This was In 1865. Sixteen years later Michell became proprietor of the paper, lie disposed of the business about ten years ago to John Douthit.

Judge Bradshaw has made an order discharge Ing all of the jurymen called for the May term of court subject to the cull of the sheriff, and it is expected to call them in and finish up the busi ness of the term some time in June. The postponement was made mainly on account or tne Kies case, wnion the defendants were not ready to try, and the prosecution wanted to avoid having the matter go over to the full term of court. The Norman Williams case Is now pending on the petition of McGinn for a rehearing in the supreme court. Just how soon the supreme court will take up and pass upon the petition is not known. Peonle here do not give much credit to the "pipe dream" published last week in a Portland paper concerning depredations in the upper Hood Kivei valley. Far Prettier Than the Pictures. "I've read about Hood Kiver and seen a number of Hood River view in the O. K. A N. literature, but after driving out through the valley last week with Mr. Smith, 1 at once wrote home and told the folks there this country was far prettier than the pictures themselves. The pictures are as pretty as you could find anywhere, but this country is the prettiest i nave ever seen," remarked, Laud R. Ruther ford, a young man here from Minne sota. Mr. Rutherford reached Spokane last full, where bo bus since been as sociated with Joseph S. Allen in the real estate business. Mr. Allen is a brother of the late John Allen, a for mer senator of Washington. Mr. Allen and Mr. Smith were old ac quaintances. Mr. Rutherford has had a great deal of experience In the real estate business, but belieevs he would prefer some business location In the went. He Is particularly Impressed with this oity and valley, and if he can se cure a locution will settle here. Should he do so, Mr. Allen of Spo kane, his uncle, may also come to Hood Kiver, us lie believes this city to have the best future of any section of the Northwest. He May Hare Keen James Foss. The Dulles Chronicle. James Foss, who was murdered at Mount Hood two weeks ago, left a valuable farm in that neighborhood and that his relatives (if he had any) might be advised of his death and come into their share of his possess ions, Sheriff Sexton has communicated with the sheriff of Caeldoulu county. Minnesota, where Foss was known to have resided. An uncle was found, who directed them to correspond with T. C. Flugum at Stoughton, Wiscon sin, and In the answer received, the brother says: "I had a brother that dlssupeared entirely from Mlnuesota some 25 years ago and there is a possi bility that he may be the one. His name was Jens Flugum and he should now be a man between 47 and 50 years old. As this happened when I was a small hoy. I cannot give you auy par ticulars about hi in except that he used to live around Caldonlu, Minn., be fore he delssapeared completely." No doubt thia man is a brother of the murdered man. Dr. John McLaughlin's (Jrave. Dr. John McLrughlln, who came to Oregon in IH'21. was for many years chief factor for the Hudson liay Co. at fort Vancouver but died under the 'American flag at Oregon City in 1H57. His body lies buried on the brink of the bluff a short distance below the fulls in the corner of the Catholic churchyard In the ground he hud do nated to the church. He is sometime called the first governor of Oregon Believing that a more imposing marble shaft should donate the resting of this eminent Oregon pioneer, (Jarson C. Maslker has contributed the follow Ing lines to the Glacier: I mude a pilgrimage to the grave, Where Dr. John McLaughlin Lies buried in the ground he gave For the Spiritual good of his fellow- men. And 1 breathed a sigh o'er the little stone 'Twas for the smallness of its spun That murks unaided and alone, The resting place of this "grand old man." As o'er the past my memory ran, 1 found my thoughts inclined to rove To the time the Indians named this man For the Imperial bird of Jove. His namesake bird (lies o'er his head, And from above these rocky crests Looks down upon the lowly lied, Where the "white headed eagle" rests. The early comers to this laud, Often reached here in a state of need ; And many a tattered and worueout baud Found in this man "a friend in deed." Vet there were those who did not like him, And this, too, may be said of Christ ; Hut for every one that cursed him. I here have been ten who blest him twice. When this man's time had come to die, And cease to move in his wanted hulls; 'Twas tlttiug that his form should lie Within sound of tho rouring fulls Whose music so long hud charmed his eurs In tho home where he ended his duys ; Beguiling him of his sorrow uud tears, And murmering still their endless lays. The cedars of Lebanon nod ami wave "Above his grand and kindlybroast His spirit is gone to the God who gave "A home where weary souls might rest. " Above his brow a memorial stone That would attract the stranger here Should mark the spot where Fate has thrown The dust of this grand old poiueer. Iiecite his deeds to men unborn ; Do justice to ourselves today ; Murk well our actions In the morn, "And four not for the close of day. " I hope to see when next 1 land.
