A learned physician says promiscuous
kismu hived tulviviiloiis, diphtheria and
infectious fever. In the Interest of tobacco
chewers ami old maid we demand It stop
The M. A. T. would not give five cents a
car load for the love of a man with an un
liorced wife living. In commercial term
it is fourth-class nubbin.
The M. A. T. is a poor stick of a politi
cian, that is he is none at all ; vet he can
quint just enough to see that Home Rule
would have fared much better if the U. S.
had kept its mouth shut. There are times
when silence Is gold indeed. It is a long
time since we licked our mother country,
and it is not saving too much to remark
that the old gal luis not forgotten It. She
at least possesses a spirit that delights in
spiting "weuns" of the U. S. If we would
help Ireland we would do well to pot on
a monstrously big cap of discretion.
The result in the recent local option con
test in Washington Territory speaks in
powerful language for the sturdy, temper
ance principles of the farming community
Farmers, as a rule, here, as well as there,
are solid for law, order, temperance, all that
binds and protects society. It is that dis
turbing element, like Madame Duniway,
which opposes these things. By the wav,
Mrs D. by working against local option
there knocked the biggest prop out from
under her pet theme.
The conviction of V. W. Saunders of the
tlie murder of Charles Campbell is gener
ally commended by those who are familiar
with the testimony in the case, and a ma
jority of people believe the verdict should
be carried out.
On Friday of last week two Chinamen
were captured in the den opposite the Post
Office, by Marshal Hayes, with an opium
smoking apparatus before them and pipes
In hand. They were arrested. One of
them was discharged a short time after
wards and the other given a trial the next
morning, when he appeared with his At
torney Cap. Humphrey. The Recorder
decided that under the ordinance the city
had nopower to punish for opium smoking.
Manv are asking if it is possible to draw
an ordinance that will "stick."
Because they postponed the matter a
anonth in order to be sure they were acting
legally, in the matter of contributing to
wards the building of the Salem bridge, the
Polk County Judge and Commissioners
were immediately stamped a a pack of ir
redeemable donkeys by a Salem paper.
The boot was on the wrong foot. Polk
county does well to deliberate. It is to be
hoped though the people of that county
will be wise enough to come down with
their share of the necessary funds. Good
bridges and roads do much towards build
ing up a country.

Under the annual adjustment of Post
Master, salarij, the Albany Naieby gets
an increase of $ioo for the ensuing year by
virtue of an increase of business. The only
.other offices getting an increase, and the
same, are Pendleton, Salem and East Port
land. Following are the salaries of the IV
M'h of Presidential offices : Albany,$i 500 ;
Ashland, $1000; Astoria, $1800; Baker
City, $1400 ; Corvallis, $1400 ; East Port
land, $1500 ; Eugene City, $1400 ; Jackson
ville, $1000 ; Oregon City, $1100 ; Pendle
ton,$t50o ; Portland,$3x ; Salem, $2200;
The Dalles, $1600.
The OTV-iSTer Blurk. S
Work on Chas. Pfeiffer's new brick block
ha been begun. Clark Brothers are doing
the brick work. The building is to be
25x75 feet and two stories high. The sec
ond story is to be occupied by Mr Pfeiffer's
family as a residence, and the first story as
a store. A one story brick of the same size
will be built on the east side after the ton
s miction of the main building. These
blocks will add materially to the city
Gradually the business part of Albany is
creeping towards and past the Revere House
A Important Case,
Great interest was manifested last week
in the case of W H Goltra agt. J II Foster,
John C ford and William Crawford. It
y 'o set aside the deed of the mill
v made by J H Foster to
Crawford. The result
. Ir Foster's creditors,
g involved in it. Judge
m the case was tried, tie
in favor of the defendant,
transfer was not fraudulent.
Front Street, just
lalbin Street, often has his at.
J by the savage growl of a dog
In the case of ladies, particu-
startlinz. As a glance around
nothing, to the matter has a
.crious cast to it. A bul! dog makes
t home under the sidewalk, and is the
, 1 use of all the trouble. Some think he
should be annihilated.
Mat tie Allison.
Last Friday in the case qf the State against
Mattic Allison a motion was made before
Judge Boise for a change of venue, oi the
grounds of undue prejudice, and the same
I was granted, the case to be tried at Salem
in Marion county at the .court to be held,
beginning October nth. A motion to re
lease Mis Allison on bail was denied.
It's Very sMaod.
We venture the opinion that not a news
paper in the State ha given to the public
such a spicy, pointed, well written article
on the "Teacher's Institute at Yaquina
Bay" as the Democrat piesents to its
caders this week. It will fully repay every
one to read it.

The twine binder has already begun sing
ing its harvest song among the wheat stalks
and heads. The Democrat hears a large
diversity of opinion in reference to what the
crop will be. Portland papers have gone
out of their way to notice Linn coimty par
ticularly at being unfortunate enough to be
visited this vear by a poor crop of wheat
After mature deliberation we arise and de
ny me cnarge. irte Indication are now
strong that the opposite is true. Take Linn
countv all together, making allowances for
big and small Individual crops, and we fee
justified in saving that the harvest of both
spring and fall wheat will be larger than
last vear. One machine man.who has been
all over the countv. savs nesrlv twice as
large ; but that Is putting it too strong
There are those who talk of a small crop
but the Democrat render it judgment on
the evidence in favor of a good crop, and It
doe not do thl for buncomb. It 1 not
treating a section of country fairly to pub
lish reports of poor crops on the word of
few chronic growlers, whose fields may have
been hit, or, more like! v, who have no fields
at all. Right here, at the beginning of the
harvest the Dku.crat asks its reader to
send it honest reports of their wheat yield,
whether large or small. If the result i not
a flattering one, .considering the many ad
verse reports we will abandon all claims to
being a good jury on the wheat yield que
It Is a at aaaaders
Last Monday evening Sheriff Smith re
ccived a telegram from Denutv Sheriff
Lampkin, of Walla Walla that a man an
swering to Saunders description, who had
been identified by Cspt. Denure, formerly
of the steamer Topsy, had been arretted.
teo Humphrey, Esq., left on Tuesday
morning to investigate the matter. Wed
nesday morning a telegram was received
from Mr. ML, reading. "It is not Saunders,"
which settled the matter and sent private
detectives off in other directions. Tucdav's
Oregouian contained the following, which
will show how easv it is to get on the
wrong track when a criminal is being hunt
Walla Walla, July 1 jth. - A man uo
posed to be haunders, tlw escaped murder
er, has been captured here bv Deputy Shcr
lwitnpkm. He answers the description
in evcrv particular, and is positively identi
tied by an acquaintance from Corvallis.
Saunders was camping with immigrants in
... a a mm . . .9
the outskirts of town, and went to hospital
Friday, claiming he was sick. He did not
deny his identity at first, and now claims
his name is Chestnuts.
Saunders was admitted to the Catholic
hospital Saturday, and claimed he was sick.
Lampkin had been watching at the camp
Friday, and finding him gone Saturday
traced him to the hospital, and arrested him
in the yard. Maunders did not at first deny
his name but went along willingly. Soon,
however, he protested that he was not the
man. B. B. Denure, formerly of Corvallis,
recognized the prisoner as Saunders. He is
pockmarked, squints,ha a mutilated finger,
a bullet mark in the left breast, b tlx feet
tall, and weighs only 130. The campers
were harvest hands from Spokane county,
and say they knew nothing of the man,
who joined 'them last Tuesday In the Har
As we go to press theie is a doubt in the
mind of some as to whether it is Saunders
or not, two or three at Walla If alia insist
ing that it is and Mr. Humphrey that it k
not. The case is a remarkable one.
Work on the extension of the Oregon
Pacific towards this city was begun at Cor
vallis last Monday morning, about two
hundred men being put to work. Mr. Jos.
Liggett who was in the city last week in
formed us that work would be pushed with
vigor, and that the road will probably
reach this city In sixty days. In fact the
contract with G W Hunt calls for the fin
ishing of the grading in that length of time.
More .men are wanted, 92 being paid, and
$4 for a man and team. The bridge will
cross the Willamette about sixty yards be
low the Red Crown Mills in this city, run
ning a few feet east of the old fruit drying
building. The structure will be a Howe
truss draw bridge. The opening will be two
hundered feet, one hundred each side of the
central pier. Work will begin next week
on it. It will take about three months to
build it. Scows with material are now
waiting at Corvallis. They will be brought
down stream a soon as wing dams are
completed at one or two of the lowest
chutes, bowers being the worst to man
age. From the end of the bridge in this
city the road will run along Lafayette
street to near the O & C R R track, where
the depot will be located. ,
The completion of the road to Albany
will be of material benefit to the city.
Though it is not a large road now the in
dications are that in a few years it will be
come part of one continuous trans-continen
tal line from the Atlantic to the Pacific,
beach to beach, the shortest route in the
whole list of trans-continental railroads.
On Thursday of last week a Comman
der v of Knights Templars, was organized

The following from the Salem Statesman
will be of interest to Albany miners, of
which we haye many (in your eye.) If
there is anything in this little item a boom
may be looked for at Quartzville :
those interested in the development of
the mines at Quartzville, the mining place
about thirty miles southeast of Mehama,
will be pleased to learn that a syndicate of
capitalists from Coeur d'Alene has deter
mined to see if there is anything in the
mines, witn tnat end in view they are
sinking a shaft, and as far as they have gone
tne prospects are very encouraeine. The
syndicate is prepared to spend $50,000 in
testing the value of the mines, and is going
to work all this summer and next summer,
tpo, if necessary.

I he grand jury having examined the rec
ords in the several office, and the publh
buildings of the county, respectfully submit
the following :
We have made a careful examination of
the jail, paying partkulai attention to it
strength, cleanliness and sanitary regula
tion. We And the cells nf uffkicnt strength
and kept in an cleanly a condition as cir
cumstances will permit. We find that the
water-closet on the south side Is not eon
nected with the sewer, and recommend that
by all means such connection be made as
oon as possible, in our opinion thl- U
necessary to the good health of the Inmates
of the building.
An affidavit of Dr. G W. Maston, sub
stantlating the above, was made a part of
We have examined the Iwxik of the Coun
ty Treasurer and And them kept In a clear
and comprehensive style, and all of hi
books and records neatly Aled awav In a Are
proof vault. We think that he is greatly In
need of a new set of books, and recommend
their purchase by the countv.
We have examined thelHM.ks and records
of the Countv Clerk's oAWe, and as far as
our investigation was conducted, found them
neatly and correctly kept, and all of deed
and mortgaue records, circuit and countv
paper and all other public document and
records caretullv indexed and tiled awav in
a tire proof vault in a convenient manner
We And the township maps of the countv
In a very dilapidated condition, and respect
fully recommend that the county employ
some competent person to make new one,
copying from those now on Ale at Oregon
City, and have the same bound in a conven
ient form. We consider thi a very neces
sary auxiliary to the law record" of the
county, a those at present in the Clerk's
office are, aside from beim? verv much
worn, far from being complete.
c have visited the Sheriff s office, and
And the tax roll properly keot and the aie
of sufficient strength. Vc And the Sheriff'
office to be the only uncarpeted office in the
Court House, and" recommend that It be
carpeted with the Mine materia) at present
used in the other office. We alo recom-
mend that the office be provided with a
counter to elude the general public from
tne lnidc working o the olliie.
We have examined the Court House
building, paying particular attention to the
roof, which we And much worn and In a
leaky condition. We would recommend
that temporary repair be made at once and
the roof made water tight, and a soon as
the finance of the county will admit a new
and more durable roof 'placed upon the
building. We would also recommend that
a sufficient amount of hor be purchased by
the county to wash out closet and be ef
ficient in case of Are.
We would respectfully call attention Ut
the Court House yard." The building is
situated upon a choke block in the center
of one of the most beautiful towns in the
Willamette Vallev The drainage is good,
the property well fenced and with small
exjtenso and a little care it could be made
the most attractive spot in the city, and a
source of pride to every taxpayer' In the
county. W would therefore recommend
tli.it the front entrance be so repaired a to
exclude stock, that shade tree of suitable
varieties be set out at proper intervals all
over he court yard, and would in the moat
respectful manner request that the beaut!
ful yard surrounding the Court Houe be'
not ued a a pasture.
