VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke Count} - , 'Washington Ter- ritory. The Desperate Deed of an Insane Convict. A terrible tragedy and one of the most serious in the history of the insti tution occurred at the penitentiary about 2 o'clock this afternoon, resulting in the death of two convicts. John Smith, of St. Francois county, sent up for five years for burglary in the second degree, and Bichard Broderick, of St. Louis, one of the express robbers, were engaged in the lower part of the yard making mortar. Broderick started for Cooper, Patterson <fc Co.'x shop, the office of which was being plastered, with a wheelbarrow of mortar. Just before he reached the steps leading to the office, Smith, who was coming behind, raised a spade he was carrying and struck him two or three times over the head, inflicting wounds resulting in al most immediate death. As if crazed by his terrible crime, Smith then rushed ! toward the round office in the center...

A Tramp's Trick. The appropriate embellishment of store fronts and shop windows Las be come an art. Goods arranged in a pleas ingly attractive manner attract tlio at tention of passers by, and thus form a cheap but effective advertisement of a merchant's business. The element of chance, however, sometimes figures very prominently in store front decorations, us well as in the otlnr affairs of life. A recent practice of several large furni ture dealers of this city has been to give their store windows the aspect of an ele gantly furnished sleeping apartment. Bed, bureau, washstand, chairs, carpet®, curtains, and all the other appurtenances incidental to the complete equipment of a bed room, are tastily at ranged in the window. Among those whose attention was attracted one day last week by a display of this kind in one of the larg est furniture stores in the city, was a member of the unpopular and despised class known by the familiar titles of "loafer," "bummer," "tramp," "vagrant," et...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, MAY f>. 18S0. Iho rapid increase of insanitv throughout the Northwest is remarka ble, if not alarming. The asylum at Victoria is overcrowded, that at Steiln eoom is full, and the Oregon asylum is pushing forward with all speed a greatly needed addition to its already commodious building. The City Council of the City of San 1' raneiseo have been looking after Mayor Ka'loch's speeches to the sand lot crowd, and have passed resolutions to impeach him for the use of incendi ary la nguage and ot her oti'ences against common sense and the public. The public disturbers are coming to have a hard time of it now that good order has the upper hand in public affairs. President Hayes has vetoed the de ficiency appropriation bill, designed to pay I . S. Marshals their last year's salaries, because the bill contained special legislation virtually repealing the laws by which election frauds are prevented. The President takes the high moral ground that appropriati...

ISKIUP MENTION. The waters of the middle Columbia and Snake rivers are still 011 the rise. The beef contract was not awarded to Winterberger, and is to be re-advertised. Gardening, painting, whitewashing and kindred am usemeuts are the order of the day. Jo. Burke is three inches taller across since that new boy was born over at his house. Two more locomotives and other railroad material went up the river on a barge last Friday. May-day was not celebrated here to any remarkable extent, although the weather was line. Mr. Samuel Ollis, a former resident of Vancouver, is stopping here with his family for a short time. Teachers' examination was in progress yesterday, but not concluded in time for a report this week.

Grant hart no support whatever in the Ohio convention. Ohio is a state which there is no probability he could carry if nominated. it is not unlikely there are Grant men in Ohio, lint their enthusiasm seems lo be repressed bv their judgment, which is that the ex president's election would be a very doubtful thing. The snow storm in the Sierras, on the t'. P. 11. K., lasted two weeks, up to the L'sth, and immense quantities of snow fell and became very solid. Many snow slides occurred, sweeping away I mining works, many people escaping! narrowly. It was the most terrible storm ever known. Honor from I'ruorß. It is conceded on all silk's that Or.

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarko County, Washington Ter ritory. The Cannon s Mouth. There is nothing connected with :i battle so exciting as to see si battery of flying artillery take position. Troops open right ami left, driveis lash and shout, horseu plunge and rear and guns and caissons cash through and ever everything until vcacbins the chosen .spot. A linf <>f men waiting for thfc tight to open will show pluck and en thusiasm with the booming of the first gun, and the faster the battery is worked the more impatient will the supports become for close work. No one will say that an army could be successful with out artillery, and yet those who hold the "cannon's mouth ' to be ter rors or the jaws of certain desOTiction will feel disappointed when they come across statistics showing how little dam age is inflicted by cannon compared with the musket.

Whaling Outside the Heads. The fact that whales abound in s«Ui cient numbers immediately outside this harbor—between the Farallones and Golden Gate—to warrant the establish ment of a whaling industry of some im portance is not generally known, the idea generally being entertained that our waters are too far south to become the resort of schools of whales, and that onlv an occasional fish, separated from his companions in the north, strays into a latitude so far from his supposed hab itat—tho Northern ocean. Considera ble numbers of whales can be found at all seasons of the year in the ocean ad jacent to this port, and within a dis tance that can lie easily traversed in a dar. Between the first of May and the first of October is the most favorable season for fishing, on account of the calm weather generally prevailing. When fishing in rough weather, there is always some liability of losing tho fish by breaking the line or by cuttinsr loose when tho vessel i 9 endangered. The abundanc...

VANCOU VER IXDEPEN DENT. THURSDAY, MAY IS, 1880. It was supposed that the Canadian Pacific llailway would be commenced at this end this season, but there has come another hitch about land grant matters, and the whole project is liable to be upset by the greediness of the Victoria people. Ex- Gov. William A. Nkwell, of New Jersey, the newly appointed Gov ernor of this Territory, is president of a company which proposes to buy vast tracts of land in Arizona and New Mexico, and deed it to colored settlers from the Uulf States, selling evey set tler as much or as little as he may be able to pay for. The fourth brutal murder commit ted in the upper country this spring was in Umatilla county last Friday, when a drunken sheep-herder shot Mr. T. D. French near Umatilla land ing. There will have to be some judi cious hanging done up there to check this barbarism, or the country will ac quire a reputation anything but sa vory. The Portland papers are bringing testimony to prove positively tha...

BOCKIXW THE BABY. I hear he» rocking the baby— Her roooii is next to mine— And I feel I iancy the dimp'.ed arms That round her neck entwine. As she rocks, and rocks the baby, In the room just next to mine. I hear her rocking the baby Each day when the twilight comes, And I know there's a word of blessing ,*nd love In the " baby bye" she bums. I can see tlie restless fingers Playing with " mamma's rings," The sweet, little, smiling, pouting month That to hers iu kissing clings, A a she rocks and sings to the baby, And dreams as she rocks and sings. I hear her rocking the baby, Slower and slower now, And I hear that she is leaving her good-night kiss On its eyes and cheek and brow. From her rocking, rocking, rocking, I wonder would she start, Conld she know, through the wall between us She is rocking on a heart? VThils my empty arms are aching For a form they may not ] re?s. And my empty heart is breaking In its desolate loneliness. I list to the rocking, rocking, In the room just to ...

Greeley on Lawyers. "Mr. Greeley; said Partridge, " tHs is Mr. I'Ynslow, a young attorney." Grcelev uttered.a short grunt of recog nition, but not even looked around. T, embarrassed, shrunk away to one cor ner and took a chair. Ho wont 011 around the room, looking at pictures and what not, and in about five min utes, when his back was turned on me and I thought he hud forgotten me, said. "Ifeni! So you're an attorney, are you?" I confessed it. "I hate lawyers'" he ex claimed emphatically. "I hate law yers; they do more mischief than their heads are worth." "I suppose they are a necessary evil," I suggested, depreeatingly. "Wholly unnecessary,'' he insisted. "I suppose you will acknowledge." I said, "that they promote good order and remove impediments to good gov ernment." "Just the contrary! just the contrary! lie squeaked, in his old falsetto; "they cause disorder, and they are the chief obstacles to good government." I thought the man was crazy. "Per haps you will tell me, I sugge...

The Boise City Stalenmnn lon ins that a party of surveyors, belonging to tiie Central Pacific, are running sur veys from Battle Mountain toward Boise City; and that they are for a rail road to l>e immediately built from the Central Pacific road, through Idaho, to the Columbia river. The Union Pacific are also going to build west, either from Ogiien or the Utah North ern. So between the two, Boise City feels confident of soon having railroad connection between the present conti nental road and the Columbia. The work of the Central Pacific is by San Francisco parties and others along the line, who desire a feeder from the great northwest. We have 110 doubt but that these roads are looking towards the sea, and Paget Sound may yet be the terminus of one or both of them. The Seattle Post says; "That lobster culture has not received the attention of Puget Souhd people, and more par ticularly our 'down casters,' before the pre sent time is a matter of some sur prise, as there are a numb...

fHAMT, A word unspoken, a hand impressed, A look unseen or a thought nngnesseJ, And souls that were kindred may live apart, Never to meet or know the truth, Never to know how heart beat with heart In the dim pas£ days of a wasted yontli. She shall not know how his pulses leapt When over his temples htr tresses swept; As she leaned to give him the jasuiine wreath ohe felt his breath, and ker lace tlushed red With passionate love that choked her breath. And saddens her lit" now her youth is dead. A faded woman who waits for death And murmurs a u&me beneath her breath; A cynical man who sjoffi and jeers At women and love in the open day, And at night-time kisses with b'tter tears A faded fragment of jasmine sprav.

Gould's Winnings. Gould's winnings during"the last year are variously estimated, but on any reck oning his capital has been rolling up like a snow-ball. The New York Pub lic says that a year ago he sold 100,000 shares of Union Pacitij for about, ?7,- 500,000. Then he bought a controlling interest in Kansas Facitie, which was at for about £'000,000, and in the next six months the stock rose io 1)2, netting # 1,000,000. Wabash was at 18 when Could bought, men say, two-thirds of the stock, and it rose later to G2J. His profits on the consolidation of the St. Louis Northern (which he bought at 7 A-, and saw rise to-17) and Wabash aro put at $■1,550,000. In all, by spending about i? 3,500,000 for stocks, Gould has netted 911,000,000, if, an important if, he were to sell out. Meanwhile lie can borrow on li is holdings two or threo times the amount of his original capital. The question- in Wall street now is how much Gould ex pects to make on his Central stock, of which he has at least 83,...

Nothing but heavy rains will put an end to them. The city of Milton, Pennsylvania, was destroyed by lire on Saturday, some fourteen squares being burned.
