HAMACHER, formerly photographer of this place, has bought out a gallery at North Yakima and moved down there last week. Mrs. Lucy H. WASHINGTON, the national WCTU organizer and lecturer, will speak at the courthouse at Ellensburgh on April 14 and 15. Thomas BROWN, the colored man who shot and killed Frank JOHNSON at Roslyn, was tried at this term of court, and contrary to expectation,the jury returned a verdict of manslaughter. Rev. Jas. A. LAURIE went ot Chehalis this week to attend the Presbytery of Puget sound, which met on Thursday evening... Rev. Mr. ALLENwill supply the pulpit in the academy chapel during Mr. LAURIE's absence. Several families of this valley have gone to the Methow country to live, having previously taken claims there, built houses on them andraised small crops during the last season. Among the number is Mr. STONE and his son Manfred. They have gone to reside there andare highly pleased with their new homes. Elmer LOCKWOOD exhibited some very fine looking galena and silver quartz from a new find a short distance above Conconully city. Thequartz looks very much like that of the Ellensburgh, and is perhaps on the same lode... Prof. John STRAUB of the state university, Eugene, Oregon, arrived here on Sunday. Mr. STRAUB has invested in Ellensburgh dirt, havingbought two lots on Pearl street north of 5th street... He left for his home at Eugene on Tuesday's train. The manufacture of starch requires no expensive machinery. Mr. BOSSONG says the potatoes raised here are full of starch, and at theruling price of potatoes it might be made paying business... John GALLER, or Dutch John as he is called, on the Wenatchee, had his peach orchard and vineyard badly damaged by the bursting of a flumeon the hill above his house... The LATIMER house was closed on Tuesday night on account of the ill health of the landlady. The boarders were looking out on Wednesdayfor new places to board. Mrs. WOOD, of several years' experience in teaching, will open a select school for children under ten years of age, April 15th, in Pinestreet, between 4th and 5th, where she has procured a large room quite suitable for the purpose. J. G. HARTWICK, well known as a first class boot and shoe maker, is now with J. L. COLEMAN where he will be pleased to welcome all hisold friends and as many new ones as may favor him with a call. Read GILMOUR & MILLER's new ad in this issue. They begin business in the new shop of T. T. WILSON, on the corner of Pine and 4th Streets.John GILMOUR is an old time smith and has been here for seven or eight years practicing as a son of Vulcan.

LOCAL MENTION

Captain HATCH is in command of the steamer Ellensburgh this season. P. C. JONES and wife, of the Hawaiian Islands, arrived here last Saturday a week ago, and invested in property here to the amount of
$15,000. The foundation of the new school building on the corner of Third and Pine streets is laid and work on the superstructure is progressing. Six brick yards are now making brick for use here this season. The brick machine of SCOTT's arrived last week and was put to work at once.
This will be a very busy season in Ellensburgh. Twelve brick buildings are under contract.

UNNECESSARY ALARM

By a private letter received from Spokane Falls, we learn that the story of James GILMOUR, formerly of Ellensburgh, but for several years
a blacksmith at Ruby, had attempted suicide, is not correct. Mr. GILMOUR has been quite unwell for some time. It was thought that a change
of location would result in a benefit to his health; consequently he went to Spokane Falls for that purpose. It is true that he took
morphine to assauge the pain he was suffering, in order to induce sleep, but that he meditated self-destruction, our informant says, is not
true. When we saw Mr. GILMOUR at Ruby, two years ago, he was a hard working, industrious man, and was doing well at blacksmithing. He had,
too, some good mining prospects. We are pleased to say that Mr. GILMOUR's health is better, and he is likely to live a good many years.
His wife and the two boys, we believe, are still in Ruby, and Nora, the daughter, is going to school at Vancouver.
