To the Honorable County Court
of Columbia County, Oregon.
We. the undersigned, jurors in
the case of the state of Oregon vs.
John A. Tender, as well as taxpay
ers of this county, resiectfully call
the attention of your Honorable
body to the very unsatisfactory con
dition of the jury room, on account
of the absence of a toilet, etc; that
the same has been a source of great
inconvenience during the past two
weeks or more that we have been
compelled to remain together in
the jury room -not only the incon
venience of being down stairs, ne
cessitating frequent trips up and
down, and at times, when the ba
lilT happened to lie down stairs, oi
out of the building, or on some
errand, or at night, when it be
came necessary to use the same
it becomes very annoying; we,
therefore recommend that steps be
taken to remedy this condition as
soor as possible.

The Metaphysical Seeiety.
The distinguished company of con
tributors to the first number of the
Nineteenth Century was selected from
a yet more distinguished company of
whli-h Lord Avebury was a member.
This was the Metaphysical society,
founded by James Knowles and Ten
nyson In 1800. Its members ranged
from Dean Stanley o Huxley and
from Tyndall to Manning, and Its
meetings saw such unusual sights as
the Catholic Manning, supported by
two Protestant bishops, presiding over
a discussion among atheists, delate and
freethinkers. The society formed ths
nucleus of the band of contributors
who supported Knowles as editor first
of the Contemporary and then of ths
Nineteenth Century. Westminster Oa
