Contrary to his declared inten
tion, Charles Hedges, who was dis
missed yesterday from the position
of superintendent of city free de
livery, today asked for an investi
gation and reinstatement. He also
filed a claim for 16 days' leave of
abssnce with pay.
In answering Hedges' assertion
that during the years 1898, 1899
and 1900 he had not taken one day
of regular leave, officials of the post
office department declare that the
reason Hedges did not take a leave
of absence when a vacation was
eoming to him was that if he had
done as he wouldn't have had an
excuse for charging up a per diem
allowance, and his salary was all
that would have been paid him.
As it was he took the side trios, re- !
ceived a regular salary, and charg
ed up per diem expenses.

Darrin Says Yes and
Mrs. Abbie Wareham was for 28
years a sufferer from epileptic ' fits
The many scars that she will carry
through life bears evidence of the
terrible falls she sustained as a re
suit of this most horrible affliction
epilepsy. She consulted the best
medical talent, six, different physi
cians pronouncing the case incura
ble. She. was recommended at last
to Dr. Darrin, but in her own mind,
and in the minds ef her frienas,
with but little hope of ever being
cured. Appended are her own
Dr Darrin treated me with elec
tricity and medicine, and from the
first, I began to improve, and after
thorough - course of bis
treatment I am happy to tav I am
cured. I have bad no indication of
a return of my awful affliction for
the past 11 years. I give this in
he interest of those similarly af
flicted and most heartily - recom
mend Dr Damn's system. I had
epilepsy 26 years before going un
der Dr Darrin's care. November 14
he cured me of a case of deafness in
one minute. I refer to Mr.'.B F
Haley and Mrs. Graham, corner
First and Maine streets, also Mrs.
F E Dewey, 386 Davis street, Port
land, all of whom knew of my con
dition, then and now.

For ten years prior to going un
der Dr Darrin's electrical tieatment,
September 12, 1896, I had been
gradually growing deaf, with a con-
j stant ringing in my ears. For the
past five years I could not hear ord
inary conversation. With treat
ment by Dr Darrin I can bear near

conscientiously recommend Dr.
Darrin's new cure for deafness, and
can be referred to at Marlin, Ore

Paisley, Or., Jciy 26. Francis
G. Bark, of Minneaapolis, spent
two days here making a personal
exam at ion of the country and a
feas ble route for a railroad which
be thinks will be built from Salt
Lak to the, Coast, terminating
somewhere near Eugepe. He ex
pressed the belief that the $10,000,
000 recently paid the Union Pa
cific Conpany by Clark for the " Or
egon Short Line will be expended
on a road through, this country to
the Pacific Coast. '
After an examination, of , the
country he has concluded that the
most practicable route. for such a
road would be across the desert
from Stein's Mountain striking
Lake County at a poirft where Or
egon and California corners on the
Nevada line, thence bearing north
west and passing through Crooked
Creek. Valley and up the Chewau
can Valley to Paisley, and in a
northwesterly direction to the low
pass over the Cascade range on the
bead waters of the no-th middle
fork of the Willamette River. .
Nearly all tbe timber in this part
of Oregon would be accessible to
such a road. Mr, Burk goes from
here to San , Francisco, thence to
New York. "
