Southern Oregon Mines.
From Portland Telegram. '
We had an interview with a
leading mining man about these
mines, and as the time has at last
come when it seems their reputa
tion is fairly established, so far rb
the existence of gold goes, his in
formation may be useful. We may
add ho is an authority in these
matters. Ho said : j
"Last season from there being a
morp than unusual eupply of water
from the late spring rains, the
placer mines of Southern Oregon
have risen into importance never
known since early days. I make
this statement from results, the
best of all evidences. It is an es
tablished fact now, in the opinion
of all reliable men, that the placer
fields of Southern Oregon are
formed by an old pre-historic river,
as they were in California, and ex
tend in unbroken continuity for
over zw miles, that is, from high
upon the Umpqua above Can von
ville, in Douglas county, to below
Jacksonville, in Jackso.i county.
All through this distance the for
mation is precisely the same, and
wherever -worked, even with insuf
ficient water, for good hydraulic
mining, it has of late years always
paid well. The whole distance
may now be considered as thor
oughly develoied. From Canvon-
ville to Jacksonville, at intervals of
20 miles and less, hydraulic dig
gings exist, and wherever water
could be had in anything like suf
ficient quantity as I said, the result
this season lias been very satisfac
tory and drawn greater attention
than ever to them."

Cleveland's Thanksgiving Procla
mation. In accordance with the time-hon
ored custom of designating the last
Thnrsday of November as a day
of national thanksgiving, President
Cleveland proclaims as follows :
"While the American people
should every day remember with
praise and thanksgiving tbe devine
goodness and mercy which have fol
lowed them since their beginning as
a nation, it is fitting that one day in
each year should be especially de
voted to a contemplation of the
blessings we have received from the
hand of God, and to a grateful ac
knowledgement of His loving kind
ness; therefore, I, Grover Cleve
land, president of the United States,
do hereby designate and set apart
Thursday, the 30th day of the pres
ent month of November, as a day
of thanksgiving and praise, to" be
observed and kept by all people in
our land. On that day let us forgo
our ordinary work and employ
ments and assemble in our usual
places cf worship, where we may re
call all lhat God has done for us,
and where from grateful hearts our
united tribute of praise and song
may reach the throne of grace.
Let the union of kindred and the
social meeting of friends lend cheer
and enjoyment to duty, and let
generous gifts of charity for the re
lief of the poor and needy prove the
sincerity of our thanksgiving."
Grover Cleveland.
Thanksgiving Proclamation. .
GovernDr Pennoyer ha issued
the following:
I do hereby appoint the fourth
Thursday of the present month as a
day of Thanksgiving to Almighty
God for the blessings bestowed upon
this commonwealth during the pres
ent year. God has indeed been
most beneficient to our state and
nation, and yet unjust and ill-advised
congressional legislation, hav
ing made gold alone full legal
tender money have so dwarfed and
paralyzed business that the boun
ties of Providence are now denied
to hundreds of thousands of people
within the national domain, who
are not only without employment
but, are also without the means to
procure food, raiment or shelter.
While, therefore, the people of Ore
gon return thanks to God for His
eoodncss I do most earnestly re-
c 3m mend that thev should devoutly
implore Him to so disjwse the pres
ident and congress of the United
States to secure the restoration of

Short-weight Batter.
Frou th Rural Northwest.
The agitation against tho prac
tice of selling short-weight rolls of
butter which the Rural Northwest
has been carrying on for the past
two years seems to be having nn
effect. An item in a recent issue
of the McMinnvillo Reporter says
that the warfare against short
weight butter rolls has compelled
merchants to adopt tho custom of
weighing to purchasers. The best
creameries in the state now follow
the rule of making exaot one or two
pound rolls. The practice of sell
ing short-weight rolls is a constant
incentive to cheating. The sale of
butter bv weight is. better for hon
est producers as well as consumers.
The Mail isn't saying a word
about short-weight butter in Med
ford but if we haven't seen it here
than the rolls have become very

Funeral Discourse.
The following sermon was preached
at the funeral of Mr. Jay Bradley, by
Re'v. F. J. Edmunds, at tho Presbyter
ian church in Medford, October 27, 1893:
Text, St. Mathcw 3:12. "Wboae fan Is in tola
band, and Uu will tboroubly purge but floor,
and KUllivr bis wheat Into tbe garner, but be
will burn up tbe cnan with unquenchable
This is the figure Christ used to rep
resent the process of sifting men. His
unending action in destroying evil and
preserving good. The tense ujd is
the present tense. The text does not
tell us of something Christ will do in
the future. The judgement is already
begun. The process of discrimination
is going on now. The work of aifting
is not postponed.' "Whose fan is in
his hand and he will tuorouhlir nurra
his lloor, and gather his ' wheat into
the garner," etc. Thus men have al
ways been sift-id. After three years of
labors and teaching Jesus winnowed
his nominal followers and of the twelve
one was only chaff and woa blown away.
At the end of his brief life of about
thirty-three years. Christ was brought
before Pilate. Was it Christ before
Pilate? No! rather Pilate before
Christ. It was not Christ on trial, it
was Pilate on trial. Will the Roman
Governor dare to do kioht, or will
he sacrifice honor, sacrifice himself,
sacrifice his manhood, iu order that he
may keep a place, and an office, and a
rank? It was Pilate on trial. So it is
and so it has always been. Let any
great reformer arise and denounce sin,
pointing out its magniude and de
formity, nnd instantly men begin to
separate themselves into classes. The
work of discrimination commences.
There are those who will apologize for
iniquity, excuse iniquity, or if they
dare not do that, they will strive to
find some ground far attacking him
who is attacking iniquity. Thus men
are sifted. God's fan is in bis hand.
A few years ago the great M. E. church
of the U. S. A. was convulsed by the
startling undoctrinal declarations tf
Dr. Thomas, of Chicago. Many thought
the M. E. church would be disrupted
and divided. Dr. Thomas was put on
trial. Was it Dr. Thomas on trial or
tbe M. E.-church on trial? The ques
tion was not so roucn, is tne iir. T.
heterodox as will the great M. E. church
stand firmly by tbe faith and the teach
ings that bad been transmitted to her.
So wa may add it was not so much Dr.
Briggs on trial aa the great Presbyte
rian church of the C. S. on trial.
What is true in the life of Christ and
his church, is true in the life and ex
perience of every individual. Every
day is a judgement day. We are being
judged every day by the words we
apeak, the acts we perform, the char
acter we manifest. Every capacity in
tbe growing child, is a measure of
judgement. The child has for eyes
what will he use them? lo look on
things that make for truth or righteous
ness, or those that foster animalism
and sensuality? He has hands how
will he use them? to grasp the neck
of his fcilow with greed, to filch from
has pocket bis hard gotten gain? or
will be use them for help and blessing
dispensers to others? Every day asks
these questions. Everv day answers
these questions. The child becomes a
man and enters into public business.
The questioa comes to him "Will I
be true to conscience, and it may be,
lose, or untrue and geV 6013?" Sot a
few on trial. The martyrs are not all
dead. We have martyrs in the market
places, martyrs in the shops, martyrs
in banks, men who have gone down to
bankruptcy, men who have faced pov
erty, who have come face to face with
disaster, but have dared to do right.
Every man is measuring, testing him
self. Life is a judgement day. Tbe
fan is in Christ's hand. The judge
ments are not merely casual, incidental
judgements. Life is not a series of- ac
cidents, mischances. This is a super
vised judgement" day. When we are
brought into trial it" is by a divine per
missive providence. He allows us to
be tried not to find out what is in us
but to show us what is in us. His fan
is in his hand. Let us net forget that.
God permits trials because he sees
what each one needs. God knows what
we need to disclose in us what we are,
and what we need to make us what we
ought to be.
As to the decaased. Mr. Jav Bradlev
was born in Blakesburgb, Wapello
county, Iowa, January 11. 1S52. He
came with his parents to Jackson
county. Ore., in Oct. 1S6S. He was
uuited in marriage with Laura Merri
man. Nov. 23. 1676. who wiih three
children, two sons and a daughter, his
moiner ana two sifters, remain to
mourn his loss. He moved with his
family to Wyoming in 1K?1, where he
lived lor nine years. In W yomtng, as
in Oregon, he has many friends.
Wherever be lived and was known it
was to bo prized &nd honored. He was
an only son. His fa'her died in 1875.
Mr. Bradley was a part' "of God's pure
wheat. He hated evil, he abhorred
wroug, he loved and cherished and
prized right. God. by his spirit, had
winnowed out of his life all the enatf
of deceit and guile, so that be stood be-
lore his family, the church, the world.
as one of -God's choice chieftains. He
was a man concerning whom I can sav.
no one can say a thing against him.
His life was above reproach. In every
relation ho was noble aud pure and
trustworthy. He was one whom we all
feel we can ill afford to spare from the
home, tho church and the community.
God hns, in His wisdom and goodness,
gathered into His garner this precious
portion ol Ills wheat to be lorever safe
from all the attacks of sense and sin.
Let us bon iu loving aud sweet sub
mission. Thunk God for the trials
that bring tears to the eyes and aching
to tho heart. Thank 'God for those
who hare gone up through great trib
ulations, and have washed their robes
and raude thMU white in the blood of
the lamb. Therefore are thev before
tho throne of God, and serve him day
and night in his temple, and he that
sitteth on the throne shall dwell among
them. They shall hunger no more,
neither thirst any more, neither shall
