| November 2,
After the Battle.It affords the Reveille much pleasure to announce the defeat in the Council last week of the bill to divide Whatcom county. The movement was in opposition to the wishes and best interests of the people, and its defeat meets with general approval. Messrs. B. B. JONES, Dr. G. V. CALHOUN, Senator CANFIELD, Judge REINHART, Captain ROEDER and others deserve credit for able work which caused its death. Councilman POWER and Representative KINCAID made a fatal mistake in using their official positions in aid of the bill, but we are charitable enough to forebear dwelling upon their faults...

Chinese Invaders.Mr. D. E. TUCK, living five miles north of Whatcom, on the Bay, arrested three Chinamen last Tuesday morning who were stealing their way into this city from British Columbia. He brought the fugitives to town, hoping that they might be turned over to the authorities, but in this he was disappointed, as there are no provisions made in the Restriction Act permitting the civil authorities to arrest, hold or inflict punishment upon the invaders. Hence, he was compelled to turn them loose, and they are now in this city enjoying all the rights of free-born American citizens. While Mr. TUCK was enroute from his farm to this city, he was met by Wa Hing, contractor at this place, to whom was awarded by Victor ROEDER the contract of cutting 500 cords of wood...
Three Mongolians Take in--and Turned Loose Again.
Suicide at Steilacoom.John H. DART, a patient in the Hospital for the Insane, committed suicide by hanging. On opening his room on the morning of the 24th he was found fastened by his neck to the iron grating of his window by his suspenders, which he had formed into a noose. He was warm, but quite dead. The act was so deliberate that in order to commit the deed he had to draw his feet up. His knees almost touched the floor. He was melancholic, but had shown no inclination to suicide before. He was a single man from Whatcom County, aged 39, with no relatives. A coroner’s inquest was held, which returned a verdict of "strangulation at his own hands."
Another Complication.Last week the Reveille proudly announced that all differences and troubles existing in Whatcom between the townsite owners and others would be finally and amicably settled. But new heirs and strange complications appear constantly, and follow quickly upon the heels of each other. No sooner are threatened outbreaks prevented in one place than things tear loose in another direction. Another new heir to the Peabody estate has put in an appearance, who has never been heard of before. It is a bouncing girl, born to Mrs. A. W. PETTIBONE, at Ripon, Wis., Oct. 27th. The chances are that the father will rescover. (sic)

Shot a Seal.About daybreak Wednesday morning while Mr. S. T. VALENTINE was meandering along the county road in search of unsuspecting mallard, he heard a strange snorting and blowing in the slough near J. S. CONNER’s barn. With one hand engaged in keeping his hair from standing on end, and the other grasping his trusty shot gun, he cautiously approached the bank of the slough and there discovered a large seal floundering about in the water, it having become imprisoned between some drift logs. Being unable to secure the animal alive, Mr. Valentine shot it, and with much difficulty hauled the carcase (sic) up on the bank. The animal is an unusually large one of its species, and will weigh 200 pounds.

Drowned in the Skagit.The sad news reached here on Wednesday last that George MASSEY, a young man well and favorable known in LaConner and vicinity, had met his death by drowning in the Skagit river. The unfortunate accident occurred at GAGE’s logging camp, near Mt. Vernon, where Mr. MASSY was employed as car-tender. It seems that on Tuesday morning while standing on a boom endeavoring to direct the course of a decending (sic) log, his pike-pole slipped and he fell backward into the water. In coming to the surface it is supposed the unfortunate man was struck in the head by the log and stunned, and he sank to rise no more. The only eye-witness of the affair was a kloochman, who was standing on the bank of the river at the time, but was powerless to render any assistance. Deceased was about 28 years of age. He has a mother residing in California, and a sister, Mrs. John BALL, living near town. Some friends of the deceased came in town on Wednesday to obtain giant cartridges and other appliances for raising the body; but it is thought their efforts will be unavailed, as the strong underflow in the river is believed to have carried the body down stream. There is something peculiarly sad about the death of one so young, in the prime and vigor of sturdy manhood. It was but a few days ago that we met George MASSEY at the masquerade, as gay and happy as any in that merry throng, and little thought had we at that time to be so soon called upon to chronicle his most untimely taking-off.--LaConner Mail

--Cards received at this office announce the marriage, at Seattle, Nov. 5th, by Rev. I. N. DENNISON, Mr. Edward P. JULIEN to Miss Minnie BRUNS, of Birch Bay, Whatcom County. The Reveille sends congratulations, wishing the happy pair a long life of happiness and prosperity.

It is understood that they have gone to obtain counsel to check, if possible, the growth of Whatcom, and convert the land thereof into a huckleberry patch.

DIVISION BILL KILLED.Special to the Reveille.
Olympia, W.T., Nov. 21.--KINCAID’s Division Bill, providing for the division of Whatcom and the organization of Skagit county, came up in the Assembly to-day and was promptly tabled. This kills the bill too dead--places it beyond resurrection, as it were. From the above it is evident that Messrs. NICKLIN and WHITTLESEY have accomplished the object of their mission. It will now be in order for Mr. KINCAID to “rise up” and explain that he has always been opposed to a division, and that his actions in this matter have been based solely upon the clamorous demands of his constituents. This explanation will sound well, and, of course, the people will believe it. Mr. KINCAID is such a candid man that the people will never for a moment mistrust or distrust his declarations on that score.
--J. H. STENGER is in Seattle. Will return on next boat.
Come to Whatcom County.Mr. John MORROW, writing from Davis county, Kansas, says; "I am a reader of the Reveille, and having disposed of my property here, contemplate going out to your country. I desire you to state through your columns if there is any good timber land near market, owned by the Government, and for sale. I have a large family--seven sons and one daughter--and I desire to locate in town in order that they may have the advantages of schools. I can bring with me from $5,000 to $6,000, and would infer from the Reveille that Whatcom is the proper place to locate."
In reply the Reveille would state, that Whatcom County affords the opportunities sought by Mr. MORROW. There are still in this county not less than 1000,000 acres of the finest timber, fir, spruce and cedar, that ever grew...
What Was the Verdict?Law business in Whatcom is on the increase, greatly to the joy of the attorneys, who had lately been having a lean time of it. Among other cases recently tried before Justice REINHART is that of GAZLEY & ROTH vs. CORWIN, for forcible detainer and rent of the lot now occupied by the defendant as a fruit stand. The first case resulted in favor of defendant. The second time the case was submitted to a jury, which is the first jury trial in Whatcom this year. The jury returned a verdict in favor of defendant for possession and costs, and plaintiffs for six dollars rent. The costs amounting to over $30, it was a substantial victory for defendant. The Court entered judgment for the plaintiffs for possession, rent and costs, from which defendant has taken an appeal to the District Court. As the verdict is a rather peculiar one we give it entire, as follows:
Territory of Washington, County of Whatcom. In Justice court, before S. D. REINHART, J.P. GAZLEY & ROTH, plaintiffs,
H. B. CORWIN, defendant.
We, the jury, in the above entitled cause, find the defendant guilty of a forcible detainer, and also find him indebted to the plaintiffs in the sum of (6) dollars, and do hereby award him the possession of the premises described in the complaint in this action and entitled to his costs.
A. J. GOODNOW, Foreman
GAZLEY, ROTH, HUFFMAN and WORRELL appeared for plaintiffs, and WHITTLESEY and DeMATTOS for defendant.
--Messrs. WEED & BISSELL will open the Bon Ton Restaurant, at Bellingham, next week.
Fern Leaves from Ferndale.--Charles TIMMERMAN has returned from Seattle, and will spend the winter in making improvements on his ranch two miles north of here.
--Mr. MILLSAP has joined his family here, and is much pleased with this part of the country.
--Miss Minnie FOLLITT is in the country, a guest of Miss Effie COWDEN.
--Charles TOWERS and James BAKER brought a fine deer through town to-day, a trophy of their days hunt.
--Capt. WILSON returned home last week from San Francisco to make arrangements to be gone some months he has procured a situation as chief master of the ship Grecian, now laying in Mission Bay, soon to make a voyage to China. A life on the ocean wave a home on the rolling deep, have greater charms for him than felling the giants of the forests. M.D.C. Ferndale, Nov. 18
