Now that our new depot is com
pleted and the travel to the city
comnlotclv shut oil from its old
route by the depot, a decent road is
the want of the times. The
main road leading into Salem from
Mehama and Turner is an outrage
to the traveling public, and a dis
grace to the city. In winter when
the waters are up, the present road
will bo in a veritable river, not
merelvof mud, but of water, almost
rtrnn oiiomdi to swim a horse. The

bridges are narrow, contracted, eater

rough, and withal a worse road
leading to the city cannot be found.

A .Nameless Crime
Charlej Cowen now languishes In
jail, pending examination before
Justice Strickler, for the commission
of u crime which shall hero be
nameless, but which in years ngono
caused the destruction of a great
city. The one upon whom his hell
ish work was performed was Gideon
the little nine year old son of John
lluton wh resides just north of
this city. The crime was committed
on the 15th Inst, but the boy is yet
too ill to be brought to the city to
appear as a witness against the brute
In human form. The examination
was to occur this afternoon, but will
lie continued until the witnesses can
be here. Cowen is about nineteen
years of age and not of a very bright
"Uttle l'bllV Lire.
We wish to warn the public
against the spurious livjs of Gen.
Phi! Sheridan. They are advertised
by publishers and represented by
agents ingeniously to deceive tho
public. There is no work of the
general's life that Is authentic except
that written by himself, and pub
lished by Charles Webster & Co.,
New York. Eveiy other publica
tion Is spurious and robs his family
of their just heritage. See that the
name of Gen. Sheridan and Charles
Webster & Co. is on the prospectus
or book, before you give an order,
as Mrs. Sheridan Is not pecuniarily
interested or otherwise in any other
work of the okkeual's life.

For Ibe Protection of Deer.
The Alpine club is doing a deal
of unnecessary labor In the matter
of getting up petitions and bills for
the passage of moro stringent laws
for the protection of deer. What we
need rather than more laws on this
point is the enforcement of the
present ones. Wild deer in Oregon
is a matter of but few years at best.
The state is so rapidly lining up
that there will soon be no haunts for
the mild gazelle.
Street Hallway Construction.
Although this afternoon was the
time set for opening bids for the
construction of tho Salem street
railway, they will not be taken in

The directors will then meet at the

This Will glvo the contractors suf
ilclent time in which to arrange
their specifications. There will
perhaps be a half dozen bidders.

The Saleni postmaster was ap
pointed by President Arthurand his
term expires on Dec. 4, next. Presi

of his successor.
It is not unlikely that tho "cow
question" will form an Issue at tho
coming Albany city election. From
tho streets the cow must go. This
is the motto of the popular party.
A Michigan syndicate is gobbling

Gus Thompson is down with the

villo is attending him.
From the number of creameries
just now being erected all over the
state, it would seem that the ship
ment of butter from the east must
soon cease. The establishment of
some henneries would likewise be
for tho best.
Of the narrow gaugetral n derailed
n few days ago near Sheridan, three
box-cars were completely capsized.
In one car wero twenty-live China
men. No ono was killed or very
seriously injured, though a number
of Chinamen were badly shaken up,
cut and severely bruised. None of
the white passengers on tho train
were injured. The train was mov
ing very slowly at the time or tho
accident would have been u bad
The monument to Senator Nes
mitli has arrived and is being placed
over his grave on the old home farm,
near Derry, Polk county, but the
state is not paying for it. The
family is bearing the total expense
and tho sum of $250 appropriated
will not be drawn from the state
treasury. The reason is that tho
amount was so small as to scarcely
be worth applying in the manner
intended. The monument is of
niarbloand granito and is sixteen
feet high with a polished base cover
ing sixteen square feet.
The mysterious order of "101" in
Grant county continues to send its
warnings and notices to leave to the
citizens there. A. W. Waters dared
them to approach him and they
failed to come around. Tho last
man to receive the summons to leave
was Green Hudspeath. He replies
through tho Harney Items saying :
"I do not intend to leave 'nnd I
can oe found at my farm, two miles
southeast of Burns, at all times, and
tlmt I am prepared to give these
cut-throats and tools of monopoly a
warm reception. Tho cowardly
whelp who wrote the notice I re

with a pen, one who could raise or

to frighten me or other settlers he
