Sheriff Patterson has filed a
petition with the county clerk in
which be asks Judge Hanna for a
decision upon points of law wherein
a disagreement between himself and
the county commissioners exists
W. Colvig appearing as his attorney.
It is a question of expenses and the
disagreement originated at the last
.session of the county court, over
Mr. Patterson's having charged his
. expenses in bringing young S to well
of Eagle Point, from Oregon City
to Jacksonville. Stowell was under
arrest at Oregon City for forgery
committed in Jackson county last
, summer. At about the time that
word of his arrest was received the
. sheriff was preparing to take Mrs
Swacker, an insane person, from
Jacksonville to the asvlum at
Salem. When he had delivered
the lady at the asylum he went on
to Oregon City and brought Stowell
back with him to Jacksonville.
The bill presented to the county
court, as we understand it, covered
all of the sheriff's expenses from
Jacksonville to Oregon City and re
turn, but as the state pays for the
conveyance of insane persons to the
asylum the county court refused to
pay the expenses in bringing Stow
ell back, except such part of them
as were contracted in going from
Salem to Oregon City and return to
Salem and the prisoner's expenses
from Oregon City to Jacksonville,
the court claiming he bad already
been paid by the state and that he
did not double the rpad in perform
ing both these services.
The Medford flail Outdone."
' Under the above caption the Oreoon
Ian prints this from the Grants Pass
Courier: "Practical miners claim that
the city of Grants Pass rests upon a bed
of gold. In sinking wells, both above
and below town, the bedrock has never
yet been reached, but when down a few
feet, the gravel prospects all the way
from a color to 15 cents to the pan.
The latter fig-nre is considered big, and
indicates a Heavier deposit as the bed
rock is approached. - The business
men of the city might with profit have
the matter tested, as, if the theory is
correct, every one who owns a town
lot also poseeses a gold mine.- The
presence of water amongst the gravel
suggest the ease in which the golden
It is a noticeable fact that when
Medford ladies and gentlemen at
tempt to do honors upon any occa
sion they never fall short of the
mark aimed at, and this is one of
the several reasons why The Mail
likes Medford and her people. An
instance right now in mind is the
greeting they gave to the State
horticulture board as they passed
through Medford Tuesday morning,
en route to Ashland, a meet
ing was held on Tuesday - and
Wednesday of this wee.
At very short notice a most cred
itable and well managed reception
was given President Cardwell and
his fellow members of the board by
the ladies of Medford. We say the
ladies, but some of the credit was
due to energetic gentlemen, and
much to the Medford school band,
which furnished several choice se
lections during the affair. ,Cieo. P.
W alhhan, who suggested the idea
on Saturday last, iouna an aoie
coadjutor in Rev. E. S. Craven, of
this city, who enlisted the services
of the ladies in preparing magnifi
cent bouquets, as well as beautiful
boutonnierea for the horticulturists.
Two large baskets had been most
tastefully decorated by Mrs. C. W.
Palm, and these were failed with
fine samples of fruit, contributed;
by Hon. J. II. Stewart, Messrs. U.
L. Webb, J. A. Whitman and
Mr. Wallihan boarded the train
Central Point and when the
train reached Medford, marshalled
the guests out upon the platform,
where the ladies at once proceeded
to decorate the gentlemen with
flowers, while the band greeted
theji with a choice selection. Dr.
Cardwell then tendered thanks in a
brief address, and Prof. Bloss, pres
ident of the State Agricultural
College at Corvallis, also addressed
the people. Three hearty cheers
were then given for the Horticul
tural society, and Secretary Sargent
at once called for cheers for Med-
ford's ladies, which were given with
will. The band played again,
and as the train moved awav the
rear platform was occupied by as
many of the society party as could
find room there, and they cheered
Medford again and again.
The party was made up of Dr. J
R. Cardwell, president, Portland;
Geo. I. Sargent, secretary, Port
land; H. E. Dosch, treasurer, Hills
dale; Emile Schanno and Miss
Alma Schanno, from The Dalles,
Jas. Hendershott, of Cove, and Prof.
M. Bloss. president of the state
agricultural college, Corvallis. All
the above named gentlemen are
members of the state board of hor
ticulture, except Prof. Bloss. At
Medford the party was joined by
Hon J. W. Whitman and Edwin
Ross, of Medford, Levi Morris, of
Talent, also member of the board,
and E. W. Hammond, of Wimer.
Upon reaching Ashland, Rev,
Dr. A. J. Brown, pastor of the
leadinz Presbyterian church, of
Portland, who was on the train, en
route to California, asked the party
to group themselves on the plat
form. He placed the Medford
contributions of fruit and flowers in
the foreground and photographed
the whole. Our representative at
Ashland tells us by letter that Med
ford apples and grapes, contributed
by J. H. Stewart, greatly surpassed
any thing shown in the opera house
particularly his White Malaga
and Muscat grapes and Gloria
Mundi apples. G. L. Webb's
peaches were larger and higher
colored than any shown there. Med
ford 6ent no pears, but her large
baskets occupied places of honor
next the stage, and their beauty
and contents were greatly admired
by all. The dinner tables at Hotel
Oregon were decorated witn aiea-
ford roses Tuesday. The demon
stration at Medford amazed and
delighted the passengers, who were
asking all about it on the way up
to Ashland. '
There is a double-decked round
up of excitement down on Galls
creek, near Gold Hill, since last
week when a twenty foot ledge of
very rich quartz was struck. For
some time Messrs. H. Kubli, E. B.
Watson, II. D. Kubh and Frank
Knight have been working on this
lead with an arastra, but nothinc
exceedingly rich showed up until'
last we?k, when the above men
tioned strike was made. The ledge
is full of free gold and is, without a
doubt, one of the richest mines in
Southern Oregon. A five stamp
mill is to be put up at the mine.
This property has been in the mar
ket for $20,000, but since these later
developments it has been withdrawn
and no price is now made.

Gin Lin, the Chinese mining tyee,
from Upper Applegate, left for
China a few days ego. From a
business standpoint Gin Lin has
ever enjoyed the highest esteem of
all classes and races, but on leav
ing to visit his native heath he did
one thing which would be censura
ble from an orthodox standpoint,
i. e., it is alltged. he "presented"
his wife to "Bow Wow," or Bow
somebody, without the usual for
mality of a divorce. The consider
atum is not named, but it's
customary for the recipient of such
precious gifts to pay handsomely.
It is openly asserted that Gin on
his return will bring a "society
lady" with him as a wife. These
are hard times and the only relief
to the sad and melancholy picture
of man's inhumanity to man lies in
the fact that the slave is pleased
with the change of masters. Sla
very! Yes, slavery, in this boasted
land of the free. After being a faith
ful wife for twenty years a poor
woman is bartered away for a mess
of pottage. Well did Bret Harte
write, twenty-five years ago, about
the lecherous, treacherous, barba
rous Mongolian vandal:
"Do I sleep? Do I dream?
Do I wonder and do-ibt?
Are tiling what they seem,
Or merely visions about?
Is civilization a failure?
Ia the Caucasian played out?"
"The heathen Chinee," in spite of
his evidences of total depravity, bus
champions in the land. Such men
are, to a great extent, governed by
mercenary motives, and their re
spect for the Chinese is gauged by
the limit of their ability to prey
upon "John" in mercantile transactions.
