LOCAL BREVITIES

E. ROTHLISBERGER, father of Frank, has moved his family to town. Several of the young people from this place attended the dance at Ronald last Saturday night. Signs of prosperity are apparent in the frequent visits of the silk hat fraternity with various lines of
goods for sale. According to those who claim to be posted on piscatorial excursions, the salmon will soon be splitting
the waters of the Yakima. B. BRAIN, Frank SEATON, and Mr. CLINE, head sawyer, have erected cottages in South Cle Elum, which they
will occupy. Verily, South Cle-Elum has taken a boom. Mr. BARAMER, a former roadmaster on this division, but now of Spokane of Northern, was in town the ???
part of this week looking after his property interests here. Ex-assistant superintendent PALMER of the Pacific Investment Company came in last Saturday night to await
the return here of Hon. C. J. VALLENTINE from the upper country. Two Italians were on the street last week with a couple of large cinmon bear, which they had perform about
ten minutes for two dollars. Thomas JOHNSON, who shipped 5200 pounds of sulphrets from the Peschastin to Tacoma, realized $184 net,
from the shipment, which is a good showing. He will make another shipment in the near future. F. M. COX has made application for the postmastership at Easton and his recommendations are of a nature
that insures his securing it. Mr. COX was in town this week and reports business fair in his new location. A dispute arose last Saturday night at Ronald between John SHEPARDSON, the colored watchman, and
Joko MILLER, the constable of the village over a two-bit bet. MILLER drew a 44 caliber Colts revolver and
fired twice at SHEPARDSON across the card table. The first shot took effect in SHEPHARDSON's arm and the
next grazed his abdomen. The wounds are not serious. Four cars left the track from an east bound freight on the main line, in the west end of town last Sunday
morning... Nobody was hurt, but the cars were badly damaged. Walter J. REED, the little four year old son of John REED of Yakima and nephew and namesake of Walter J.
REED of this place, died very suddenly last Sunday night of croup. Walter was a bright child, a streak of
sunlight that gladdened not only the hearts and lives of his parents, but of all who were accustomed to his
childish prattle. No words of condolence can palliate the berevement that such a loss occasions. Okanogan Bill, the wild man from Borneo, after a weeks visit and recreation among friends in civilization,
took his departure last Monday at 11 a.m., amid all the pomp and glory due a distinguished personage. His
raven black cayuse sniffed the air of battle from afar and pranced about the street like the fiery charger
of the famous duke of Wellington. Mr. MILLER has gone to the Colville reservation. May the lines call to
him in pleasant places. So long, Bill. Judge BOYLES and S. S. HAWKINS came down Tuesday from the upper country where they have been doing
assessment work on some excellent claims. Some very fine specimens of ore shows conclusively that they have
interests there worth prosecuting. These gentlemen will remain here for the winter.

A GUN PLAY

There was an exciting gun play at the depot last Tuesday noon. Constable BLUNT of Roslyn had charge of
one MULDAHRY, a prisoner who was under arrest for striking a man named BURNS in KLAUS & Co.'s saloon at
Roslyn with a beer glass. The constable was on the way to Ellensburgh with MULDAHRY and while awaiting at
the depot here for the east bound passenger, the prisoner attempted to make a sneak, whereupon the officer
fired six shots at the fleeing man, one of which merely touched the tip end of his thumb. The fellow lay
down in the brush where he was discovered shortly afterwards by some of the bystanders and turnd over to the
officer who took him back to Roslyn to await the night train, having missed the noon passage. When MULDAHRY
was brought down Tuesday night, he was heavily shackeled, hands and feet. The constable and prisoner took
the night train for Ellensburgh.

VOLCANIC EVIDENCE (Letter to the Editor)

While out prospecting recently, Mr. CONNELL and myself discovered a remarkable eruption in the mountains
between the waters of the Yakima and Taneum. The eruption has occured between the iron and coal belt and is
about 300 feet wide by a quarter a mile long. A wonderful mass of stuff has been thrown out. The causes
that produced this upheaval are of course unknown. The great mass of matter which has been shot out of the
bowels of the earth consists of blackened rock, sand, dirt, quartz, slate and almost all manner of mineral
formations of every size and shape... There is every evidence this is an extinct volcano. The character of
the burnt rock and melted mineral substances that have run together in a mysterious mixture, all prove that
the heated interior of the earth belched forth at this point sometime in the world's history. Pat TOWMEY
