A MAN Alton' fOWN.
The Man About Town observes that Al
bany now baa ten church buildings and
eleven pastor of churches. In the matter
of religious denominations this city can not
be outdone in Oregon for its else Here
they are : Methodist, M E South. Evan
gelical, Christian, Baptist, Episcopalian,
Congregational, Presbyterian, United Pres
byterian, German Evangelical and Catholic.
The men who have charge of the Woolen
Mill enterprise say "it is bound to go."
The impressions of youth are the ones
that stick. Their cohesive power is im
mense. Habits formed are rarely changed.
Old men are but boys grown. These are
facts worth contemplating by young people
who have an ambition to become influential
men and women. It is a mistaken idea that
one can sow wild oats at will and reap
wheat at fifty bushels per acre and a dollar
a bushel. It cannot be done either practic
ally or theoretically, and several Albany
young men should digest the fact.
Drinking shop and tippling house are
evidently synonimous according to the or
di nance on our first page.
Last Saturday the Man About Town
made a flying trip down the O. & C. R. R.
about sixty mil. Pine wheat fields all
along. Some wheat cut and bound. Ex
Governor Chad wick on board going down.
An astute observer. Also Mr Boy n ton the
saw man, of New York. Great talker and
friend of the Salvationists, Watched them,
Human nature crops out on board cars.
News boys queer institutions. Importunate.
Ten cents worth of fruit for a quarter. Now
they pav the R. R. Co. so much for privil
eges. Formely worked for news company
in Portland. A Salem gentleman remark
ed that men of that city do not pull togeth
er Local jealousies.' Hinders progress.
Salem will generally be backward. Albanv
men work together!
There U this about the Salvationists :
They thrive on persecution. Tin horns, tor
pedoes and guttera! amen give them big au
diences. They are never put down by
hoodlumism. It U this kind of persecution
that spreads them out all over the U. S. It
serves at a free advertisement. If left en
tirely alone as a curiosity their sidehows
could never keep them up.' It is about time
the whole crowd, Salvationists, and big and
little tin horn hoodlums became ashamed of
themselves. As a combination it is certain
ly a nuisance.
titau MmI raad.
The State Board of School Land Com
missioners has made a distribution among
the several counties of this state of the in
terest which has accumulated during the
last year from the loan of the irreducible
school fund of the state. The amount dis
tributed is over $87,400, being one dollar
for every person of school age in the state.
The highest ever distributed heretofore was
ninetv cents to the pupil, which makes a good
showing for a democratic board. We trust
the democratic state officials will make sim
ilar favorable showing in all other depart
ment of the sUte. Of this $87,400 Linn
county will got $5706, and, as this fund is
distributed pro rata and not like the count v
fund by first giving each district $50, each
district will receive one dollar for each per
son of school age in the district. The total
amount of the irreducible school fund is
about $1,200,000, and is being increased at
the rate of $15,000 to $20,000 per month
from the sale of school lands.
Dr. Tyler died in this city last Sabbath
evening, at the age of 72 years, after an ill
ness of some time. Several weeks age the
Doctor was taken to the insane asylum at
Salem ; but improving, was brought home
a week or two after.
Mr. Maxfield, of Kings Valley, Benton
county, father of Mrs. R. McConnei;,of Al
bany, died at his home near that place last
Sabbath evening after a short illness. Satur
day he worked all aay in the hay field. He
was a man of sterling qualities and leaves a
large number of friends as well at relatives
te mourn his death.
Uan County Coal.
We have coal in Linn county. A few
days ago Mr. C. G. Burkhart brought from
Ids claim about eight miles beyond Lebanon
several specimens of coal, which, though
imperfect, indicate that there in a mine of
wealth in the foot hills. The coal is con
siderably like the Seattle coal, perhaps hard
er and much resembling in spots the Penn
sylvania anthracite. Capital might make
coal mining an important industry in Linn
county. A fine market could easily be ob
tained by the extension of the Lebanon
branch into the coal regions. Will capital
please come forward and investigate mat
ters. Company T.
The members of Company F., O N G
held their first drill in this city, over Pipes

Mrs. I. M. Hassler, of the Forks of the
Santiam, has the thanks of this office for a
very fine squash which she has saved over
in a perfect state of preservation from last
year's crop. During the cold days of win
ter she had it covered up with quilts near a
stove flue up stairs, and it is now in sound
condition. She has about a half dozen yet
on hand. This shows what care and pains
will do In preserving the fruits of labor.
Notice to Thresher.
We have been asked by a number of
those who will run threshers this season to
extend a request to all the threshers in the
county to keep an accurate account of the
number of acres, and amount of each kind
of grain threshed, so that when harvest is
over the threshers may get together and as
certain how much per acre has been the
Co amendable Charity.
The citizens of Brownsville with a broad
spirit of generosity last week raised the sum
of about $56 and donated it to Mrs. Shanks
who had the misfortune to lose her son by
drowning in the Calapooia Creek. It is not
difficult to reach the hearts and pockets of
the people of Brownsville when circum
stances demand it.

After the discharge of W. R. McDaniel
in this city last week he was again arrested
on the charge of embezzlement and taken
to Salem on Friday. The Siatctmm of that
city thus pointedly gives the principal points
in the matter :
McDaniel is charged with embezzling
from the money order funds of the post
office at Harrisburg the s im of $1126 re
ceived by him in the postotfice. It Is the
duty of the different postmasters of Oregon
to daily remit to Portland a statement of
the amounts received on money orders, and
the balance, if any, over moneys paid out.
Some time last year Mc Daniel's remittances
began to come very irregularly, and finally
not at all. Inspector Mason went up to
Harrisburg in December last for the purpose
of investigating the matter. He found that
McDaniel was embezzler for over $4400.
Mr. Mason demanded the money, and after
some trouble succeeded in getting it.
In March it was discovered that McDan
iel was again behind in his accounts a little
over $1126. Shortlv afterwards he was re
moved from his position, but for some rea
son formal charges were not at that time
preferred against him. Several days since
McDaniel was arrested at Ashland, charged
with being an absconding debtor. He was
brought back to Harrisburg, and was ac
quitted of the charge. On the 1 3th Inst. U.
S. District Attorney McArthur filed Infor
mation against him for embeasling the
$1126 mentiened.and McDaniel was arrest
ed on this charge. He was examined be
fore Commissioner Walton yesterday morn
ing, and was bound oyer in $icoo bonds to
await the action of the U.S. grand jury at
Portland In October. Inspector Mason 'and
Postmaster Davis, of Harrisburg, testified
