sequel to the Douglas county treasur

misuse of county funds. His poor old
mother gave a home to his penniless
family and tried to do for them the
best she could, but grief over tho fate
of her unfortunate son was more than
she could bear, and she died of a broken
heart. Her son has not been informed
of her death.
-"Costly thy habit as thy purs can

We regret that wo are called upon
this week to chronicle the death of
little Nina, the ten-year-old daughter
of W. J. Sturgis, who recently arrived
in Medford from Iowa. The child was
at Sunday school last Sunday aud the
same afternoon was taken ill with an
attack of la grippe which culminated
in a severe attack of inflammation of
the lungs and stomach resulting iu
death on Tuesday. Theso people are
almost strangers among us but their
residence has been sufficiently long to
make for them many friends whose
earnest and heartfelt sympathy is ex
tended to tueni in their hour of deep
aflliclion and sorrow. Mr. Sturgis de
sires us to say that the family fool that
the physician did all that could be done
by any one, but as tho child had in
herited a weak heart the case was a dif
ficult one, her malady being that of
iu Ham mat ion of luugsand stomach.

There is said to be any amount of
confederate monev being circulated
hereabouts and in some instances it is ;
being passed as genuine. The courts '
hold tbat this is countorfcit money and j
ihe offense of passing it is treated in
like manner to the passing of any other
counterfeits. In San Francisco an ar
rest was made wherein a man had
palmed off several confederalo 820
bills upon lodging houses and -poor
women who gained a livelihood by
renting rooms. His method was to
call at those places and rtnt a room for
a month in all instances paying for
them in advance with a counterfeit $20
bill and receiving in change good
money. Ho did a wholesale business
for awhile but was finally rounded up
by the police. There will be some ar
rests made in Medford if the practice
should be carried on in business trans

Mr. Mooro is considerably enthused
over tho discovery of sovoral fino spec
imens of anthracite coal in his locality.
His placo is about two miles from the
Roguo river bridge and near J. O.
Johnson's big ranch. Tho coal spoken
of was found in the bed of Evans creek
near his house and somo of the chunks
will woigh fully an hundred pounds.
There are several pieces to bo soon but
whether they come from the bed of tho
stream, which has recently been deep
ened by tho freshots, or from a ledge
on tho mountain side ho is unable to
say but as tho same quality of coal is
found in tho stream near tho Anttoch
school house some distance above he is
of tha opinion that tho stream is cut
ting into a well defined vein, at least
five feet wide, ut each of these places
and if that be tho caso the ledge must
run through the mountain. However,
there is coal, and good coal, in tbat lo
cality and only sevon miles from the
railroad. Tho find of a well defined
coal bed in this valley and convenient
to a shipping point would prove of un
limited value.

Rev. J. Mekley and wife arrived in
Medford Monday morning from a quite
extended visit in California. These
peoplo are friends of Mr. and Mrs. C.
I. Hutchison and are formerly from
Denver. Indiana. They were in Med
ford about three months ago and while
here were driven about the country
and thereby an opportunity given to
get a good look at our wondrous fruit
crop. These people left after a few
weeks for California and after travel
ing in tha'. state for three months they
now find themselves again with us, but
ibis time they are here to remain.
A Mr. STEFFI NGER, of Portland,
was in Medford several .days last week
and was talking over an electric light
preposition with our people, which,
bowaver, did not seem to coincide with
the ideas of several of our councilmen
and citizens, they considering that bet
tor propositions for the city's good
had beeu made by other parlies. Mr.
Stefiinger had also in view tho proba

do. The gentleman is proprietor of
the Merchants Hotel at Portland and
is reported to be a man of considerable

It is almost a safe guess that two
thirds of tho male population of Med
ford are interested in mining property
and many of the remaining third are
getting themselves mixed up with that
iudustry as swiftly as opportunities
show themselves. Among the more
recentoncs who have had their pockets
copper lined and are now packing
around a vsrigated assortment of quartz
are E. H. Fawcclt, A. Wright and Jas.
Coeti. These gentlemen have recently
each purchased a sixth interest iu the
Odd Fellows mine in the Blackwell dis
trict from Emilo llolden. This miue
has been worked considerable during
the past year and at present there are
several tons of ore on the dump which
is rich in both gold and silver. The
ledge is five feet wide with a rich pay
streak running through the center
eight inches wide. An assay of quartz
from this streak goes $1200 to tho ton
and quartz taken from the ledge out
side this streak assays $40 in gold and
$31.70 in silver all assays made in San
Francisco. It is tho intention of the
owners, as we learn from Mr. Fawcett,
to soon put in a five stamp mill. We
have specimens of the rock at this
office which show up very rich.

Teoplo who were In attendance at the trial in
JuiIim Walton's court last Saturday were Eih
ly amused and o ms'.1o was seen to slide over
taeir faces at various times, but that smile was
one of disgust and pity. Disgust for the drunk'
en deputy U. S. Marshal and pity for the pris
oner so unfortunate as to be in charge of such
a maudlin fool representative of the law.
Tho case being tried was one wherein J. W
Englcdow. residing upon a piece of government
land about two mi!s from lold Hill, had been
arrested by Deputy U. S. Marshal Hope for
cutting and selling timber from government
laud. Inglcdow did not deny the fact that he
cut and sold the timber but slated that the tim
ber was cut durluc th process of clearing the
! land and instead of burning it on tho grouud
he sold a tew loads nnd bought provision tor
his family with the proceeds. The evidence of
throe witnesses was heard, as was also the
prisoner's own testimony, which latter was to
the effect that he had been to Jacksonville, ex
nmiued tho plats and had told Clerk Muller
that he would go onto the land, lnako his im
provements, run out tho boundary lines after
which he would return aud make bis riling,
proved conclusively to tho judge that his in
tentions were to mako the place his homo und
iu cutting tho wood ho was ouly doing so to
clear the land uud in selling it ho was ouiy
making use of that article instead of destroying
it by burning it on tho ground, and the prisoner
was accordingly disohurged.
To one looking on it appeared to bo a case
whereiu tho marshal was determined to take
his man to Portland whether innocent or guilty
and to that end it looked liko his efforts
were to prejudice the judge, citing his
authority from a higher source
and closing each time (this authority
was citod several times) with tho statement
that the prisoner must be taken to Porllund
