SatuxdayJost his. eyesight to .such
an" extent , tjaat he .- was , unable
to attend : to his 1 dxities.T He is
Messenger ' McClusk'y," " who lias
been on the run for.a year and- a,
half.. On Friday he got a cinder
in- his-eye, . and - the; inflammation
that re-ulted was a serious incon
venience to him when he came out
of Portland Saturday morning. The
affection grew worse and worse, and
by the time McMinnville was reach
ed, Mr.. McQlusky's eyesight . had
failed so lar as ability to do his du
ties was concerned. He was nn
ab'e to, make up the mail as requir
ed, and the most ot it wai brought
to Corvallis, and taken back on the
afternoon train. , . ... ;
In Corvallis remedies we e prq-
cured and applied, with beneficial
results, but not to such an extent
as to restore vision. . Postmaster
Burt Johnson however, took Mr
McClusky's place on the run, and
with such assistance as the afflict
ed messenger ; could . render, .. the
mails on the down trip - were pro.
perly handled. Two clerks . from
the Portland : postoffice were sent
out to meet the train at Hillsdale
with the expectation .that ; they
would have to make the mails up,
but: the, precaution was unnecessary.
, The affection of Mr. McClusky
is believed to-be only ; temporary,
as his condition was much improv
ed at last accounts. Mr, McClusky
is about .45 years of age, and
has been for a lorig time in the rail
way mail service ,as a messenger,
tnostl y on trains in the East.
MUST a AVE PAPERS.
Or Cannot Register Troubles at the
, County Clerk's Office.
' Registration of voterd is etill
new thing in Bent in. Two roubds
at the business have failed tt so
educat i fleet irs ' that they ha v
full under, tinding of the idutine,
and there is, as a result, much
trouble for the registration officers
at the court hous. ,
A chief tource of bother, ti both
vote s and officerb' is that natural
izad citizans fail tn remember that
tbey mast preset t their naturaliza
tion papers at the time they regis
ter, ' Almsot every dy 6nch per
sons apply at the office to regirtir,
and ate unavoidably required to
mak-another trip t biiag their
citizenship pipers. Without these
papers, registration imp ssibl,
for the law on the subj wt is man
datory, and cannot ha eet a,-ide by
the county cleik or h's, deputy.
Ths same trouble in another form
is in f'ecase of sods who become
cit:z.-D8 through Ihe naturalization
of their fathers. For i istance, if a
son while yet a minor cVmes w'th
b if ffthr from a for igu land iuto
the Uuited States, such ion becomes a
citizen (t 21 provided hie lather has
become natuialized in the mean
time. B t, in order to register,
the son must prpsfnt the papers of
his father, before he is allowed ti
gt.his name ' cm the regi-tration
bii ks . A case happened yesterday
in wbicb a young man of 28, who
camp 1 1 tne cout.try many years
ago. was uranle to register, because
his father has not ytt become a
c, t;zn, : The only courte open to
him is to take out naturalization
papets of his own.
The law on tbe subjett is found
in eubdivisioo 8 of the registration
law. . It provide that if the elect ir
be naturalized, eligibility lor reg
istration shall be attested by "the
time, place and court of naturaliza
tion, or declaration, su evidenced
by the legal proof thereof, exhibi
ted by the elector." The attorney
general of the t-tUe has held that
"legal proof" means the certificate

is, of course, the naturalization

The question of asking the city
council to purchase one or two
chemical engines was considered at
the meeting, A proposition from a
Portland dealer to sell one laree
four-wheeled Champion .chemical '
or two smaller , two-wheeled en
gines taking Young .America, en'
gine in exchange at the price of,
325. was read. The, price ot the
large chemical is about- $1,400 and
of the smaller ones about , . $700.
Most of the members were unfam
iliar w,th the merits o i dimerits q the
Cbemicals. .andhad no distinct ideas
as to the advisability, .of a purchase.
Nearly all are opposed to a sale , of
Young v America engine , at . any
