returned to Kaatern Oregon, and now
when the people auk for an appropria

open rieer to the sea," tlio combined
strength of the senators from the mt

earnestness: IM these men know what
they have donii and are doing? They
have robld and arc robbing a just
people of their rights for tho benefit i.f
private interests, and still they have the
calm audacity to pone a reprcsenta

Ciikvxsm:, Feb. 4. Special. About
ten days ago the Cheyenne district court
witnessed a series pf legal proceedings
wherehy the twenty-three cattlemen
captured last April by I'nited Stales
troops got off without the formality ol a
trial. The cattlemen aro not without
friends in Wyoming, and the slierilf,
after weeks of unavailing effort, was un
able to secure tho required number of
aatiHfactorv jurors. Saturday he came
into court and announced thut unless
some one proffered $800 to cover the ex
pense of scaring more veniremen he
must cease his efforts. The prosecuting
attorney held conference witli promi
nent citizens and then made a motion to
dismiss the trials. Then the cattlemen's
attorneys objected, saying that their
clients wanted a trial and acquittal. So,
to meet the emergency, the jury box was
filled from among the bystanders, while
tho indicted men were rapidly brought
up in blocks of four and discharged.
This would never have occurred but the
prisoners should actually have appeared
as tho proeccutors. They were falsely
charged by cattle barons from Texas
and Colorado who iuvaded the country
last spring to occupy it as a range for
their own cattle to the exclusion by cat
tle men living there, and having homes
there for'years. It ia to protect the
good name of such citizens against such
statements as the following, that tfco
mess la ask&l to publish the above, the
telegraph report of proceedings ten days
ago was In the interest of the cattle
barons, and closed as follows : "As U is
said that an acquittal would have been
returned in any event, popular sentiment
being strong In the cattlemen's favor, it
is perhaps just as well that the public's
' time f.nd money were waited on the for
i malities of law. Whatever the men
! may hare deserved, they got their de
! cisions with celerity and very little cost
! In jury fees. Hut Wyoming would do
I well to lay In a new supply of citizens
from which to replenish her juries. A
culprit who escapes justice because there
j are not enough people in the community
to furnish twelve impartial jurors ran
' not be expected to view the law with
' uniform respect."

: myself or by any member of Mr. I.laine's

or any private letters or papers of Mr.

Heppner(Ja.ette. The Cogfwell stock
bill should not pass. To divide the taxes
on stock that go into another county, is
fair, and such a bill would meet the
approbation of stockmen. But to Have
to pay tuxes, and an unjust license lie
sides, for tlie privilege of herding ou
Uncle Sam's gras is out of reason.
Tiiere is a mean as well as two extremes
to this question, and the Cogswell bill
seems to court one of tho lat named.
Tho Gazette hasn't any use for Cogswell
or his bill either. He is tlie toot of

Washington, Feb. 4. Special. The
assembly in Salem ought to take the
head of the procession now in a matter
of grave iir.iiortance to all people. The
door is open for them to imitate Indi
ana on the subject of the telephone.
Among attorneys and men in congress
who have for years followed tho subjects
through tfie courts and the patent office
much is said about the anticipated
breaking of the telephone monopoly by
the early expiration of the principal
patents under which it is now operat
ing. Tho patents on the transmitter
and receiver, and also that upon the
general idea of transmitting sound by
electricity, wilt expire within twelve
months, when, it is stated, the telephone
fiend will be free to a half-dozen or
more patents, and it is expected that
tolls will rapidly decline in every state.
In this connection it is noted that con
gress which is generally so attentive to
the Interests of the citizens of the
Distrct of Columbia, especially when it
comes to anything in the direction of
home government has never attempted
to check the exorbitant telephone rates
which are charged in the capital of the
nation. A very ordinary service here
taxes patrons f 100 each a year even
w here more than one ia served by a
single wire. In Indiana and several
states the legislatures hare fixed the
maximum telephone charges at 3 a
month for1 a service equal that furnished
here, and the law has withstood the
tests of the courts, while the service
has not deteriorated. In Washington,
which is the ward of the economists of
congress, the tendency of telephone
rates has been constantly upward.
