a stream. He started up the stream, and
after going about four miles. just at dusk,
he saw a cabin on the other side o the
stream. He waded over and found the
cabin occupied by ZT Bryant and Mr
Crandall, of Lebanon, who took in the
unfortunate man and cared for him. Mr
Hewett was almost exhausted, was
chilled through, and had he missed the
cabin would certainly have perished in

Too High Taxes. Lane county peo
ple are greanv agitated over a rrlii lax.
and the grange particularly wants it lower
ed to 30 mills. The court though declares
5 mills to be necessary and will let it
stand. One of the speakers before the
court In favor of a lower tax was Rev I D
Driver. The Guard says he made quite a
speech. He said that the court house
was worse than a barn, while the jail was
ine nnest Duttdlng in the county. Je
claimed that a jail should be something of
a horror to terrify criminals. He said
that a man with brains after seeing the
handsome jail and poor court house, with
a tax of 35 mills, wouU not Invest here.
He said that everything was low, and the
people were unable to pay such a tax
Therefore he was In favor of a 30 mill lax.

Lost in thr Snow. The following
from the Corvallls Times reads peculiarly
from a valley paper: Mr J sines Denmsn,
a bricklayer of this city, mt with an ex
perience in the late snow storm that he
will rot speedily forget. He had been
building some Sues at the farm of Mr
Wants Nash seven milts distant from
Nashville, ard started about 10 o'clock one
morning from the latter place on his way
to his home In Corvallis. He was ladell
with tools, the snow wai three fsct deep,
ann Ids progress was very slow. The
middle of the afternoon found him trudg
Ing along, about exhausted and apparent
ly no nearer Sis destination. It soon
dawned upon him however, that he had
lost his way, and In order that better pro
gress might be made he dropped his tools.
He continued his weary tramp until
nightfall, when from aheer exhaustion he
gave up the search, and crawling under
some vine maple boughs that afforded
slight shelter, made himself as comforts
ble as his desperate circumstances would
perm't. Dawn the next morning found
him VIS, benumbed and hungry, but he
pushed on, and finally reached Nashville
tn time to catch the train for Corvallls.
Mr Denman, who, on thia occasion was
without food 48 hours, haa recovered

Ma. Hay's Cask. A Salem paper says:
The state board of railroad commissioners
is in receipt of a it iter from Jerry Hay, of
Hanlsburg, thanking the members for
thelr Sorts to brinsr about a settlement of
rhls claims against the Southern Pacific
for damages on account of Injuries sus
talned by his son Frank, who was run
over at Harrisbure. County Commis
sioner Anderson, of this county, has tn
formed the board that Mr Koehier's state
ment to the effect that tbe Southern Pacific
had satisfactorily arranged cattle guards
and fences on his place, was not wholly
true, and asked tbe board not to dismiss
the complaint until the matter is adjusted.

dependent tells the following: R C
Houghmsn.who lives near Mt Angel, has.
seemingly, struck It rich. New Year's
day he killed a turkey nd In Ita craw
tound a nugget of pure gold worth at
least one dollar. In the craw of two
geese he got several other aad smaller
pieces. In hunting around over the place
he picked up small pieces of gold to the I
extent of at least $10 Most o this came
from the hillside, but one cr two piece t
wash" gold. Lemuel Walker has gone
out to prospect the place and see what
there 1 there. He states that the gold
shown very much resembles that found
on Salmon rlyer. This I not a "fake"
atory, but a matter of fact.

Ore Cause of Poop. Roads. We wan'.
better roads and no doubt better laws ;
but we also need to have the lawn we
already have respected. If they were
and residents of this as well as other
counties did their duty, we would have
a big improvemert over our present
roads. A sample of the way some of the
work is done came before the present
County Court. In one district the list
showed 103 days work due tbe district.
Tbe report of the supervisor shows that
only 4 days work were done in the entire
district, making a delinquency of 90 days.

they are liable to a fine of $50 for not do

A FORCE KILL SENATOR
The author of tbe famous force bill will
1 a member of the next United States
senate. Henry Cabot Lodge was yesterdsy
made tbe caucus nominee by the republican
members of the Massachusetts legislature.
As the party has a large majority, the nom
ination ia equivalent to an election. In
the caucus ninety-four votes were necessary
for a choice and be received 147, which
show that he was the favorite with little
vigorous opposition. His opponents were
such men a ex Governor ohn D Long and
ex Congressman .William W Crapo, both
abler and broader minded men than he.
but neither had the whip over the members
that Lodge held.
Henry Cabot Lodge is a brilliant man in
certain respects. Hi rise baa been rapid.
Hi bold on hi party is largely due to his
tremendous energy . boldness and partisan
ship. Never did a more devoted republican
occupy a seat in the lower aotue of congress.
It was in tbe natural order of event;that he
should be senator. He baa been the practi
cal muu,a?ur of the republican party in
Massachusetts for the last eight years. He
i an excellent debater, a hard fighter, and

When Lodge introduced and fiercely
supported the infamous force bill, he
showed a lack of broad statesmanship, a
sectional spirit, and an egotistical aetfish
ness that merited tbe disapprobation of tbe
entire country, and received it, except
among the republican hero worshippers of
hi own state. He is. as indicated before,
an ideal republican, and therefore in that
party a great man. Why? Because narrow
partisanship characterise its policy, and
sectional teg'slation is its joy It thinks of
the few. not the many. If the ex-Governor
John D Long had been nominated, tbe
seat once occupied by Charles Sumner,
after many years of comparative eclipse
while occupied by Dawes, would have
again been held by a man of whom Iris
party could be proud, and whom democrat
a well as republicans would respect. As
it is, Henry Cabot Lodge wiil be a weak
ling in the senate- How can tne author of
the force bill expect favor from such men
as Gorman, Faulkner and Mills?. TW-

Speaker Crisp's visit to New York for
the purpose of conferring with president
elect Cleveland, which was first authori
ttvely announced in this correspondence,
was a success from every point of view, and
while the speaker will not, of coarse, talk
about what Mr Cleveland said to him, his
face indicates to a certainity hit satisfac
tion, and indeed, be does not hesitate to say
that the conferences were entirely satis
factory to bo'h participants, and that be
found himself in perfect accord with Mr
Cleveland's ideas about what should be
done by tbe party in congress. Tbe im
portance to tbe democratic party at large
of this complete understanding between
Speaker Crop and Mr Cleveland can

pi ace, it removes all danger of a 'bitter

Your comtpndent regrets that be
cannot give as good newt of the prospects
in the next senate. In the first place, tbe
control of tbe senate of the next congress is
still very much in doubt, with the proba
bilities of ita being ia the hands of the
populists, who have, through Senator
Peffer, announced their intentions to put
their votes where they will do the most
good to themselves. Democrats here take
no ctock in tbe stories which repnb'ican
and mtgwump newspapers have been cir
culating about tbe intentions of Senator
Hill. Tbe senator himself has long ago
given up the attempt to put a stop to silly
stories by dignifying them with a denial,
but a gentleman wbo enjoys confidential
relations with him. and who is probably as
well anrmaiated with his intentions as any
one, except himself, said to me:
"Senator Hill is first of all a democrat, and
you will make no mistake by sietiting in
the most positive terms thai be will do
nothing in the senate that will be inco
si stent with Simon pare democracy. He
will support Mr Cleveland's administration
a loyally a any man in tbe senate, except
tn the matter of appointing mugwumps or
newly converted democrats, of the Wayne
MacVeigh stripe, to office. If Mr CVeve-
and nominate any of these men to
important cdoce I predict that Senator
Hill will endentta to prevent their co
irmation by the senate, but he will cast no
vote sgsinst the uaifirnistina of any mat
whose democracy is rmqnestioned. Be
member thia prediction, and see if time
does not prove it truthfulness."
Here is a specimen of extravaipxnt and
legislation, brought to light by
hers of tbe house cwmmirtee on appro
priations: In the estimates submitted for
appropriations for the next fiscal year by
the war iltpaiimeiil was esse item of,
1650.000 for artificial limb for soldiers.
Tbe huge amount for thia purpose suggest
ed an investigation which brought oat the
fact that up to the Fifty-first (billion dollar)
congress, soldiers entitled to artificial limbs
were authorised every five year to receive
uew leg or arms, or to take in i ittiinsiito
tion $75 for a leg and $50 for an arm-
During that conaieas without any reeotn-
meswlation or request from tbe war depart
ment a bill was libbied through by the
claim agents ring which at that time
collected about nine-tenths of the commu
tation money upon a big percentage of
coarse reducing the period to three years
(since then a mil af the .lerrt:T.t SssSt
the claim agents oat of this money). It
was also discovered that the anginal law
was more than liberal, as an artificial arm
will under ordinary usage last a life time
and that a leg !U from sit to eight years;
also that 9S per cent of those entitled to
artificial arm and 7$ per cent of those
entitled to leg regularly take the money
nstead of the limb. Further investigation
showed thst if this claim agent's law had
not been enacted the item wonld have been
$75,000 instead of $450,000. Quits a
difference, eh? This i only one instance
there are hundreds of them. It will, take
several years of democratic rule and vigi
lant investigation to get tbe expenditure
of this government down to an economical.
business basis, but it is going to oe aone.
