He was suthor of the once famous book

which he be can on his journey west, In
corporating into it many descriptions of
actual scenes along the way. The tale
was completed Io Oregon City and parte
of It were read in the old Lyceum in the
winter of 1S42 and 1S43. Among the
guets who came to Mr. Moss' hotel was
J William Johnson, and to him the author
euirusieti - ine i rairie r lower, - io oo
with it wi'at he could. Mr. Johnson
handed the manuscript to Emerson Ben
nett, who In his preface does not claim
to have written it. but gives a fanciful
sketch of the mysterious stranger who
placed the document in bis hand. Un
expectedly ihe book became a great suc
cess, but Mr. Moss never received a cent
of pay or credit. Oregon was far away
then, out of the world, so to speak, snd
hard to reach or hear from. In the
meantime the book went through several
editions, amounting In all, so It is
claimed, to 100,000 copies, and out of it
Bennett won fame and fortune. No one
arising to contest bis claim, it always
went under his name and he added to it
a weak and inconsequent seqiiul, which
he called "Leni Leoti."
Mr. Moss' first wife was a neice of
Zachsry Taylor, Rebecca, daughter ot
Thomas Taylor. She died In Cincinnati,
Ohio, leaving three children. Two of the
children died in the East, but the third,
Minerva, came to Oregon and, on New
Year's Day, liV2, married Lieutenant
GuHtavns Harrison, a grandson of Presi
dent W. 11. Harrison. In Oregon City,
Mr. Moss married a Mrs. Richardson,
who left him three children, two ot

DUNS'S Til LORY ILLOGICAL.
Ills Article Is Calculated to In
jure the Cause of Irrigation.
Forecast Official Edward A. Beals, of
the United States Weather Bureau, Is out
in a circular letter denying a recent
article in a Washington paper, by E. B.
Dunn, The letter follows: .
"Mr, . B. Dunn, formerly an official
In the U. S. Weather Ruresu, In a recent
article in the Washington Star, advances
the rather startling theory that the
severe hot spell which occurred in tbe
Middle West last July was due to the
Increased area now under irrigation
along the east slope of the Rocky mount
ains. Mr. Dunn pnt the blame of the
burning op of the corn crop on the
shoulders of the irrigation compsnies and
the small farmers who are trying to
make ths desert bring forth sustenance
for man snd beast, and he argiief that
the farmer who raises Isrge crops with
out irrigation may prosper.
"Hessys that low pressors, trough
shaped, areaa occupy this semi-arid
legion and that tbe moisture evaporated
from Ihe soil is commensurate for tUIr
existence bnt Insufficient to propel them
onward, and warm air Is thus drawn
from the south which for dsys at a time
flows over the corn belt and withers the
"This theory is illogical and Is con
demned by the entire scientific staff of
tbe weather bare a. It is, in fact, on
worthy of serious conilderstlon and its
publication is calculated to fniure the
cause of irrigation not only In Eastern
Oregon bat in all of tbe rapidly growing
states in the sub-arid west.
"Tbe weather of the United Stales is
controlled by Die passage of low and
blgb pressure area and these distur
bances are carried eastward by the gen
eral movement of the upper atmosphere.
The geoeral movement of the opper
atmosphere is controlled by the differ
ences in temperature between tbe poles
and the equator. When these differ
ences, as io the winter time, are great,
the opper currents move rapidly, but
when they are slight, as is the case
during tbe midsummer season, they
move slowly and sometimes become
stagnant. Last July the upper air cur
rents were sluggish and the high and low
pressure areas drifted very slowly, and
their inaction waa not in any way caused
by the moisture element they contained.
Severe draughts and beat waves have
occored in the past long before Irrigation
was practited and they msy be expected
in tbe future as long as the difference
between the temperatures at tbe poles
and tbe equator decreases, in tbe summer
time, aa it now does, snd no efforts oo
the part of man can change this order of

ON THE NEW
An Interesting Letter Written
While On ihe Kali.
HCEJF.8 GRAPHICALLY DESCRIBED
JoJg9 fialfoway keerlrr a Letter From
His Daoghtcr Io which She Te'H
of IDr Travels.
Miss Silpha Galloway, who is travel
ing with her mother in tbe East, baa
written a very interesting and readable
letter, describing the beautiful scenery
along the line of the New York Central
Railroad and happenings as they occur.
The letter is published in its entirety
and follows :
Sept. 18, 1001.
Mamma and I are on board a New
York Central train, sliding along aboct
a mile a minute. Tbe roadbed is so
smooth that there is hardly any jar, only
a little swaying of the coach. We are
about 50 miles east of Buffalo, having
lelt there at 8:10 a. m. Three other
tracks are lying parallel to tbe one we
are on, and every occ in a while wa
ooertake heavy freight trains and west
bound ytcsenKer trains and loose engines
dart past os likes flash. They nse the
tracks in this manner:
Freight traim going east.,
Freight trains going west.
Passenger trains goinn west.
Passenger trains going east.
We are j'ist entering Rochester. Once
in a while we catch a glimpse of a long
business street, sometimes a tree line-J
avenue. Mourning, mourning every
where. It was the same in Cleveland
and tbe same in Buffalo, and all the
towns we have,-pasted through; great
sky-scrapers, elegant mansions, down to
tbe little bumble shops and cottages, all
with their draperies of mourning,
We struck the Erie caqal soon after
leaving Rochester and kept in tight of it
for some distance. Saw several flat
boats. They look like scows built up
high and wiih a Texaa at each end.
We are just entering Syracuse.
1 :45 p. m. Here we ere at Rome.
Francie, what did Mark Twain say about
Rome, N. YT Tossverny life I i sn't
remember it. I can't tell how big the city
is as oor view of the town is shut off by
factories. O, there are factories every
where through this country, mills, Erie
canal, railroads ith four parallel tracks,
then running parallel to these parallel
tracks and crossing them, sometimes
overhesd, snd hitting them at all angles
are other parallel tracks, trains shooting
around in every direction.
2:22 p.m. Have just passed Utica,
with its mills snd factories. We are in
a wide valley wkli low hills on each side,
covered with pretty woods and green
fields. We just passed quite a big place,
without stopping, but I caught a glimpse
of a big factory labeled "Remington
Standard Typewriter Works." This
train stops at very few places.
It is very hard for me to write this let
ter, so many things are going on. I can't
keep my eyes swsv from the windows
more than a second at a time.
The Erie canal is still with us, and for
some time we hsve also been keeping in
touch with a little willow fringed river
