    Will Put on a Fast Train.
The Southern Pacific Company
Bias decided to meet all comers in
i open fight for passenger busi
ness between San Francisco and
Portland. The Chronicle of Oc
tober 15th, has this: "On Monday
next, the Shasta limited, the first
train under a new service especially
designed for diverting from the O.
K. & N. Co's steamers, will start on
it's initial trip to the Oregon me
tropolis, and will be followed by a
similar train every rive days. A
.special tariff schedule has been pre
pared for this train. The through
ihrst class rate, including Pullman
raccommodatations, will be $20; the
second class rate will be $10, in
cluding a berth in a second class
sleeper.
'The Shasta limited will in no
vase interfere with the present Ore
gon express service. It will only
make the trip on steamer days, and
the rates announced for it will not
good on other trains. It will be
the fastest regular train ever run
from here to Portland, making the
regular trip in 24 hours, as against
the time of 3S hours made by the
evening express.
Circumstantial Evidence at Fault.
In the states prison at Stillwater,
"Minnesota, is published a news
paper, called the Prison Mirror. It
is edited and published by inmates
of the prison. In it is found the
.following:
"The injustice of courts is exem
plified in the case of Andrew Hudge
path, who was murdered by due
process of law at Harrison, Ark.,
about two years ago. Prejudice
And perjury secured his conviction,
atnd Hudgepath was swung from
the gallows into eternity protesting
3us innocence to the last ; and that
le was innocent was established be
yond doubt later on by the return
of the man supposed to have been
murdered. It would seem that the
law which had unjustly taken this
man's life had a duty to preform to
liis family. His widow is now liv
ing in an old tent bv the roadside a I
few miles from Wagoner, I. T.,
where she is struggling to eke out a
jiiiserable existence for herself and
children among strangers and re
viving no- assistance from those
who were instrumental in depriving
ier and her children of their naiuralt
protector. As the children growj
up in poverty and ignorance and j
hear the storv of their father's death
irom the lips of their mother, will
they not harbor thoughts ot ven
geance and set the law at defiance?"'
Circumstantial evidence hung
Hudgepath. and it hung an innocent ;
man. For the protection of man-j
"kind it i.s necessary that the courts j
depend upon circumstantial e vi- i
Jence, aud while they may have j
-erred in some cases they are but few j
compared with those which circum- j
stantial evidence has justly cjn-j
victed and punished.
Come to School.
Thetv are a number of persons in j
Medfoivl above the firat jirade who
should lie in attendance but for some
reason are not. '
The school accommodations are not iu i
pleasant as theywill be later, but there j
is room for all and good woek is be
ing done by those attending. Valuable
time is bviog lost by those who are out, j
and when ihey enter they may not be
Able to -ir the work of the grade to
which they formerly belonged and so
fall bihind. Teachers will be pleased
to have the patrons of the school visit
their rorxas any day. Come and see
what can Ik; done under adverse cir-cumstain;'-.

Mr. Miller came into this section,
says theKerhv I'nion, last May and l
located on Soldier Creek where hei
saw gnl oiuartz indications. He i
lifll ii:if l.--n thrp Inner 'fill b '
struck this big fjuartz find which he
. calls the Denver City.
The entire dimensions of the
ledge as it appears on the surface,
is sevei-ty feet wide and from '2f0 to
300 feet long. About fourteen feet
of this, that is, a fourteen feet vein
we might call it, lying in this im
mense fodv of quartz is very rich,
ieing free milling ore. Then there
a strip from two to two and one
lalf feet wide that is Utterly full of
gold. Tbi6 is a3 rich quartz as I
ver evr, in fact it could not be any
better ualess it was solid gold. I
lave sjecimens at this office which
are nearly all gold and they were
not taken out of the best specimens
-either. I also saw specimens as
large as hen's eggsjwhich seemed to
be nearly all gold. Mr. Miller has
not pronpected it down any depth
but from all indications it runs far
dowa into the heart of the moun
tain. There is enough already in
aight to make him a rich man.
Other locations have been made im
mediately tributary to Mr. Miller's
Denver Citv.
The Shell Exploded.
P. S. Enyart met with quite a pecul
iar accident Monday afternoon which
resulted in his having his left hand
quite badly injured.
He was in the act of removing the
caps from a lot of shotgun shells, and
came to one which had been snapped,
but did not explode. In some way the
shot had been taken out and Mr. Kn
yart did not notice that the powder
and wad still remained in the shell.
No sooner did he apply the cap extract
or than there was a loud explosion,
and at he was holding the shell in his
lijft hand the powder tore the flesh off
the inside of his hand in a fearful man
ner. Physicians were called and dressed
the injured member and the patient is
geting along quite nicely. No am
putation will be necessary and he will
have the use ot his hand as good as
ever.

A Highway" bicycle Track.
From the Kugvnc Guard.
Ueo. M. Miller has u model of a bicy
cle track which he is confident if put
into use would be of great benefit to
the bicycling fraturnity. The traek is
five feet wide, and is built on a frame
which is eight feet high and sets on
top of the ground. A railing is also
built on each side of the traek to pre
vent cyclists from running off. The
track can be built for six dollars per
hundred feet, including material, labor
and everything. The merits which
Mr. Miller claims for it are that cycl
ists can attain a high rate of speed on
it without danger of collission or great
fatigue, and that it ciin be traveled as
well in the wot season as in the dry.
The track is to be built with an Cftab
lished grade and will be ruWd high
enough at countv roads to pass over
there ,: ;
HEW TO TM& LINE
Let the Chips Fall Where they Hay.
As an individual member of Ihe peo
ple's iarty. and ;w a citieu in common
with my fellows of Jackson county. I
take this my first opportunity to de
nounce the late act of our county clerk
in voting with our county judge to re
duce the just railroad assessment, made
by our efficient and honest nsoor,
(ieo. A. Jackson.
This in 'am nous act comes to me like
a clap of thunder from a clear sky. for
I confided in "XuU;"' with that "trust
that binds brother to brother.
X. A. Jacob? has. as mi official,
trampc'.ed upon the fundamental prin
ciple of the Kirty that trust-d and
elected him. and therefore, he cannot
longer feel that he is a servant of that
party which has ever proclaimed "equal
rights to all and special privileges to
none," railroads not excepted. Hretli
rvn. let us stand for our just principle
and denounce corruption whether in or
out of our party.

On Wednesday of last week I
had business that called ine to
Taylor's saw mill, on the head of
Dry creek. I went the route that I
traveled twelve years ago and
what a change 1 Then I could ride
any where I wanted to, unices, hin
dered by the thickets of the chapar

turning in the afternoon I passed
along the south and west side of
Roxy Ann, where I used to ride at
