Last week we spoke of the trial
which was on before Recorder Webb
wherein J as. Stevens was charged
with selling liquor within the incorpor
ate limits of Medford. At the time we
went to press last week the recorder
had not rendered his decision. He
iid this Friday afternoon and his de
cision was thit he was guilty and the
sentence was that he pay a fine ot $75
and costs, amounting in all to a little
More than $100. Upon the defendant
promising to refrain hereafter from
the illegal sale of "booze" and as it
was his first offense, the recorder let
him off with the payment into the
town treasury $27.50 and the cost of
the trial. Stevens, we understand,
has decided not to take out a license
and his shop will not be open for the
sale of 1 iquors.

fine feature is that the building stands
well up off the ground, thus permitting

Registered Mail Lost.
During the first part of last wook a
registered letter was reported lost
somewhere between Etna and Trail
postoftico. The letter alleged to have
boon lost was addressed to Win . Cush
man, Trail, and was all right when it
reached the Etna postofflee. News of
the matter reached this city yesterday,
which is to tlio effect that the Etna
postmaster claims to have sent the let
ter with another registered package
for the Trail postofflee, with tho two
liod in one package and that the
Trail office receipted only for its own
package. Tho Etna offico has pressed
tho Trail office for an explanation' and
now an inspector has taken a hand in
the affair. Who is to blame, our infor
mant did not effect to know. The &UK)
contained in the letter stolen was in
the shape of a $200 chock and $100
in cash. It is qulto probable that
payment of the cheek has been
stopped, yet the loss of even $100 will
be quito severe on Mr. Cushman.

The Minstrels are Coming.
- - - --- - g 'I
A minstrel show like the proverbial
circus will draw a crowd where any
other kind of a company would starve.
Schillihg's minstrels is no exception to
the rule, as tho business done by this
company so far this season has been
enormous and no sign of hard limes is
visible in the places where they have
appeared. One reason for this, no
doubt is the superior class of entertain
ment they are giving. Tho press,
without exception, speak in the high
est terms of the entire performance.
This celebrated minstrel troup will ap

the boundary dispute between Great
Britain and Venezuela is the only
proper one to make, in the face of
Lord Salisbury's contemptful treat
ment of the issues presented by tho
United States; but it is suggested that
Salisbury will not always be prime
minister of Great Britain and that
the sober sense of the British people,
a of Americans, is for peace, and that
the difficulties will be amicably ad
justed before the end of this year'lWKi.

usual comment on the leading articles
for the month, perhaps in the light of
the many eccentricities of the Tilman

from the conventional idea in state
