It may not be generally known that
there Is a special reason why the Royal
Welsh Fusiliers should have a goat.
They are a very ancient corps, and at an
early period of their exlutence it was ths
custom to have a goat with a shield and
garland on its horns to inarch at the
bead of the drums. Every lat of March
being the anuiveraary of their tutelary
saint, David, tho oftioers used to give an
entertainment, and after the cloth was
taken away a bumper was filled around
to tho Prince ot Wales, and the goat,
richly caparisoned for the occasion, was
led thrice around the table in procession
by tho drum major.
In Wi the then regimental goat or
the Welab FuMliert died ami hr maj
esty presented the regiment with two of
the finest goat from a Bock the girt of
tho shah of Persia in Windsor park,
and since that date the queen has con
tinued to supply the Welsh Fusiliers
with goats a occasion required. The
pet of the Second battalion Derbyshire
regiment used to be a rum; that or the

A J AT NT INTOjrillS COCNTRV.
Ivurly Monday morning we left the
nolaeand hubbub of theclty, and wend
ed our way toward the I.uckiaruuU), to
visit fnriiicrs and take some olrvatiou
of their harvesting operations, We
first called at the residence of Mr. Lew
nam, who came to Oregon in IBM, set
tled with his fut bur In Marioti oouuiy,
and afterwards removed to Folk, where
fur years he has been engaged iu farm
ing, and at time In the butchering
business, He rained a fair crop of grain
this year, and has generally been suc
cessful In his tabor, lie has a nice
home near Monmouth, aud his future
pnniecta appear euoouraglng.
The next person we Interviewed was
Mr. John Hums, one of the proprietors
of the flouring mill on the Luckluiuute.
The mill la in continuous operatloii, its
Hour standing fair In the market; lu
fact, there is a demand for all the out
put of the mill. Mr. Bums has a large
tract of land, from which he derives
eousldvrablo revenue, lie is a geutlo-
mau with whom It is a pleasure to
meet and exchange: views,
llolnmii aud bis wife, who received us
with due consideration. Auk is a son
of lion. James llolmso, now diwaaed,
who served several terms as sherilf of
Polk county, aud we think was twice
elected representative of Polk in our
legislature, Amos llolmau Is an tudus-
trlous fanner, cultivaU his land well,
and is generally well rewarded for his
labors. His yield of wheat this year
wss thlrty-lbrt buahcls per acre.
At the farm of rmuel Tethcrow we
found Uie thresher at work finishing
up the thrcshlug of this year's crop.
Samuel is living on the farm, which
was originally the donation laud claim
of his father, Holomon Tetherow, who
came to Oregon In 1H45, aud who died
several year ago. , Holomou Tetherow
was wull known In Folk county as a
man of generous Impulses, and a worthy
and highly resected neighbor. Ills
several children aud graudchlldren are
respected member of society. '
We were heartily invited to partake
of the delicacies of the seasou at the
hospitable home of U. 11 Tedro. Mr.
Tedro has a beautiful farm of 3-D acres,
is living coutcutedty aud peacefully lo
bis now ailvanclug years, aud Is appar
ently free from care as to future wauts.
Ills yield of wheat this year was alwut
thirty bushels per acre.
Wo pursued our travel, crossed the
Lucklumute, and called at the resi
dence of .Mrs. Bmlth, who, with her son
Marion, Is enjoying a happy old age.
The health of Mrs. Smith had been
somewhat Impaired for some weeks
past, but at the time of our visit she
was slowly recovering her usual health.
Mrs Bmlth Is now ou the eve of her
eightieth year, has a remarkably reten
tive memory, and can recall many rem
iniscences connected with the early sot
tltmieut of the Luckiamute valley,
About one-fourth of a mile front Mrs.
Bmlth resides It. D.fitaats, who owns
a rich and productive farm, which, un
der his system of cultivation, brings
him in yearly a handsome income.
Henry was not at home when we
called, but we met hint on the road on
his return from Alrlle, where he lsstor
iughlsgraiu. His yield of wheat this
year was forty-three bushels per acre.
It Is predicted by his neighbors that
Henry Is to become one of the wealthy
nieu of Folk comity. His bou Tracy is
a student at the Monmouth normal
school, aud will graduate this year.
A couple of miles' drive brought us
toAlrllo, which preseutedasceiieof un
usual activity. , Wagons loaded with
grain were coming iu, aud nt the ware
house everything was life aud activity.
The Hastings Bros, were'dolug a fair
business lu the mercantile Hue, They
also run the warehouse. They had lot
out 30,000 grain sacks, and were coiill
dent of receiving at least oue-thlrd more
grain this year than during any preced
lug year. The coal mine, not far from
here, was attracting considerable atteu'
Won, aud should It prove as rich as aiv
tlcipatcd we may soon look for au ox
tension of tho railroad from here to the
coast, Our little Myrtle was toddling
around lively and aotlve, and greeted
us with smiles dimpling her rosy cheeks.
We wish Alrlle a prosperous future.
Night was now near at hand, so,
driving to the residence of J, 0. Btaats,
our newly elected representative, we
were reoeived cordially by himself aud
wife, and bade us to enter the doni'
Idle. Their daughter Bortha is an
accomplished young lady, and we had
the pleasure of affixing our nutograph
to a few lines traced in her album. The
memory of the nights passed at the rest

We called upon our friend Paul Hll
terbraud, with whom we crossed tho
plains lu 1845. We found him and his
wife at home, and enjoying themselves
as well as circumstances would permit,
Mrs. Hiltorbrand was sutTcrlug some
from a slight nlt'ectlon of her eyes,
whllo Paul wasjust recovering from an
attack of typhoid fever. They have a
lino farm, aud a beautiful residence

brand's wheat turned out well, and he
ha twelve acres in hops which promise
a bountiful yield, as at present they are
thrifty and free from insects. Paul is
a son -In-law of the old pioneer Solomon
Tetherow, with whom he crossed the
plain Iu 1845.
In the evening we called upon WU
Uant Williams, living near by upon the
donation land ot hi father and mother,
who came to Oregon In 1845. William,
or Bill, a he I generally called, is the
owner of WO acre of laud as flue a
"lays out of doors," and that land of
itself is almost a prluoely fortune.
Ja,Wltllams, his father, was one of the
first territorial legislators, and we need
not assure old settlers that he wa a
Democrat well founded In the faith.
We visited II. F. Smith, our friend
"Doo,"aud found bim busily engaged
In baling oat straw. Doc always looks
out for a coming winter, and provides
bountifully for the stock under bis
care, so that when storms come they do
not appeal to him iu vain fur food and
shelter. "Doc" Is a model farmer, and
all his surroundings Indicate a home
where peace and plenty prevail,
The Simpson farm was our next stop
ping place, where we found our county
commlsslouer busily engaged with hi
thresher, glvanlug up his wheat. His
yield of grain averaged about thirty,
three bushels per acre. He had one
small field yleldlug fifty. Tills land
has been lu continuous cultivation for
forty-six years, aud produces as bounti
fully as at the first. Orngou soil never
become barren, and needs no fertilizers
so long as nature yields her generous
supply of rain, or in the expressive
language of the aborigines, "snssli."
We called on Alex Collins aud his
brother, W. W. Collins, but found them
absent from home.
Wecontlnued on to the residence of
Joseph Hubbard, nearSuver, He also
wa from home, but when a kindly
invlutiou was extended to us by Mrs.
Hubbard to alight and partake of din
ner, of course we accepted. In due
course of time, we, with Mrs. Hubbard
aud her accomplished daughters, sat
oursolvvs arouud the family board and '
partook of viands such as ouly the
farmer's wife and daughter can provide
for the weary traveler. After dinner
all retired to the handsomely adorned
parlor, where the Misses Hubbard most
pleasurably entertained us with both
vocal and instrumental music in a
most enchanting tuauoer. 'Twos a
most enjoyable time, and we here
teuderour acknowledgments for the
favors extended to us.
; We called upon James Wheeler, and
found bim, a usual superintending
his farming operations. His crop of
grain yielded well. " He contemplates
ceasing from active forming.
The day was now drawlug to a close,
and we headed for tho city, which we
reached about sundown, having spent
two days traveling over the best farm
ing land ou "tlod's green earth." We
were accompanied on our rounds by
Mr. Gsler, of California, who, iu view
lug the country traveled over, ex
pressed himself iu rather eulogistic
terms regarding our happy laud.
A UVBSTIUH OF LAW.
In the Statemiutn' local columns on
Monday last appeared the following
Item: . .

was held in Murlou county, because
the boat was ou the Polk county Bide

crime is committed on a river or lake
that forms the boundary Hue between
two comities, thejurlsdlotiou of either
county extends a mile on either side.
But sections No. Bib) and 1217 of the
code will enlighten hi in on the sub
The Item that called forth this ebulli
tion was as follows: v
Tho steamer Yonug was burned nt
her landing iu Folk county, but the
preliminary examination occurred in
Salem. Docs Marlon couuty have t o
stand the costs?
This is nothing more than a mild
Inquiry as to the facts. We fail to see
that there is any kick In it. As to
Ignorance, before we arc through with
this matter we believe we will be able
to demonstrate that tho Statesman has
8 corner on that article. Sections 1210
aud 1217 of the code read as follows:
Boo. 1210. When a crime is com
mitted on or within ono mile of the
boundary line of two or more counties,
or when the boundary line between
two or more counties Is unknown or
uncertain, aud It Is doubtful in which
county such crime was committed, an
action therefor may bo commonced
and tried In either county.
Hoc. 1217, When a crime is com
mitted upon any bay, lake, river, or
water, situate in two or more counties,
or forming the bouudary between two
orniore counties, an action therefor
may be commenced and tried in any
county bordering ou such bay, lake,
river, or other water, and opposite to
tne place wuore uie crime was conv
The boundary linos between some of
the counties of Oregon are very indefi
nite, in some instance being the sum'
mit of a mountain range, and no one
can toll exactly whore the summit is.
It was to cover cases of crime com
mitted in such localities that sootlon
1210 of the code was adopted. It ap
plies only to oases where there Is a
doubt as to what county the crime was
committed in; but the allwise States
man has construed It to meau that a
peace officer from Polk county could
arrest a resident of Salem in Balcm for
a crime committed here and forcibly
take bim to Folk county for trial The
Idea Is absurd and contrary to Art. VI
of the constitution of the United States,
In all criminal prosecution the so
cused shall enjoy the right to a speedy
and public trial, by an impartial Jury
of the state and district wherein the
crime shallhave been committed, which
dlatrict shall have been previously as
But this question ha been passed
upon by an Oregon court. In the
esse of State v. Huber, charged with
shooting a man named Johnson, near
the boundary line between Columbia ;
and Washington counties, Huber was
brought to Hlllsboro for trial, and
Judge Taylor, on becoming satisfied
that the crime wa committed in
Columbia county, sent the case there
Bee. 1217 applies only where the
crime is committed "on the water,"
but we assume that even the State
imtn is aware that when a boat is tied
op to the shore or a wharf, it becomes a
part of the shore so far a Jurisdiction
la concerned. For fear, however, that
the Ski toman may still be in doubt a
to the correctues of our position, we
cite section 1 1 of the constitution of the
state of Oregon.
Sec. 11. . In all criminal prosecu
tion the accuiKd shall have the right
to public trial by an impartial jury in
the couuty in wbioli the offense snail
have becu committed.
It may be as well to state for the
benefit of the ignoramus who wrote
the local item in the Statatman that
we have consulted four of the leading
attorneys of tbls city aud they all agree
that the Democrat Is right.
We are glad the matter has been
brought up, as it is of considerable im
portance to Marion couuty, and we
advise Judge Hubbard to carefully in
vestigate the question before allowing
any fees hereafter in such cases.
