Mr. Stanley, the gentleman who acci
dentally shot his hand on last Christmas
while hunting, and in the act of loading his
gun, having had a part of his hand amputa
ted at the time, has not recovered by any
means. Ou last Friday the wounded hand
and arm became so much worse that Drs.
Lee and Farra deemed it necessary to
further amputate the arm, so accordingly
they took off the lower part of the arm just
below the elbow. The wounded man is in a
very critical condition and it is thought his
recovery is doubtful.

Weftd a Scarce Article,
Heretofore wood has been plenty in this
market, but choppers had to wait until their
wood was soid before they could get remun
erated for their labor, consequently they
have become tired of that and will work at
something else where they can get their pay
more prortptly. However, they have missed
it this season for maple wood is worth $6
per cord, ash $6.25, and oak cannot be had
at any price. This article will command a
good price in this place hereafter as hands
to cut it will be scarce.
During the lore part of the present week
Mr. M. Winkle living on one of the islands
a little east of south of this place, had dug
a tree so nearly out by the roots that he
had left it expecting the first gust of wind
would finish the job for him. His horses
were in the enclosure where the tree was
and when the wind came a horse was so
near that the tree in falling caught the
horse and killed it.
The enterprising people of Dallas have
determined to have another band contest.
They have raised $300 for its purpose, and
propose to make it the grandest affair of
the kind ever held in that state. Other
towns might profit by encouraging such
things. It is cheaper and better than a 4th
of July jubilee, and never fails to bring a
a large crowd from all quarters.

Mr. M- Probst, a native of Pennsylvania,
says the Telegram, has discovered on his
own farm and in his vicinity better signs
of coal oil than he has ever seen in Pennsyl

county on the Willamette, about ten miles
above Oregon City. This may result in the

Few men have done more to place the re
sources of Oregon before the public and
assist in obtaining deserved recognition than
the late David Newsoma. He was for many
years employed by the Agricultural Depart
ment at Washington and contributed largely
to that institution. He was a constant
writer, interesting and truthful, and never
advocated a wrong principle, and the exam
ple he set was on the side of good laws and
good morals. He was here in '67-8. a pio
neer in the settlement of the Bay. His
writings at that time, viewed by the light of
to-day, reads like the prophecies of the
olden time. He was a man of energy but
the force of it was spent in a direction that
seldom brings personal profit. The men
who use the pen to tell the world of ad
vantages in a new country, invites emmi
grants, but received nothing for his outlay
of patient toil, save the satisfaction of hav
ing performed a duty. The last time I saw

eastern sentimental objections to any legal

When "lhe bastard and mongrel population
of Bulgaria was badly treated the premier
made all Europe ring with denunciations of
the unspeakable Turk, but he was not in
power then. The Rothschilds and other
powerful Jewish families are raising a fund
for the emigration of Russian Jews to the
United States, but they cannot do much
without active aid from the government,
and this Gladstone declines to give them.
The Russian authorities appear to be en
couraging the war upon Jews, probably
because Jew baiting is heading off nihilism.
Dispatches relating to the brutalities per
petrated upon the unhappy people are sup
pressed by the military censorship, but the
tales told by fugitives show that they are
being subjected to the vilest treatment and
tortures. The czar, who is said to be per
sonally well disposed toward the Jews, is
powerless. All his time is devoted to pro
viding for his own sifety, and his chief
officers prefer that the peasants should
murder the Jews rather than dig dynamite
mines. It is stated orTeood authority that
German residents in Russia are also being
maltreated, and that when the Jews are
disposed of the peasants will make short
work ot Bismarck's copatriots.

Washington, Jan. 28. This afternoon
Scoville filed in the supreme court of the
District of Columbia papers upon which he
bases his motion or motions for a new trial.
In general terms the papers filed iu support
of his motions are the prisoners affidavit,
of Frederick H. Snyder as to finding
of a newspaper in the room occupied by
the jury under circumstances indicating
that it had been read by the jury, the affi
davit of J. W. Guiteau that he is acquainted
with the signatures of five jurors whose
names are written on the margin of a news
paper said to have been seen by the jury,
and that he has seen them write their
names and believes the writing on said
newspaper to have been made by the jurors
named. The last affidavit is by Mr. Sco
ville, setting forth newly discovered evi
dence upon which he bases a motion for a
new trial upon the following ground:
First By reason of uncertainty in said
verdict in that the jury thereby found the
defendant guilty, whereas the indictment
consists of different count variant from anil
inconsistent with each other in matters of
Second That such verdict of the jury
does not specify which count or counts of
indictment it was founded upon, and several
of the counts being materially different
from others, the defendant is not advised
by tbe form or substance of said verdict as
to the finding of the jury upon the material
facts of death or place of death of deceased.
Third For that the trial of this causa
was commence I at the June term of this
court aud was not concluded in the same
term of court but was extended into the
December term without authority of la v.
Fourth For that this court had uo juris
diction of this cause by reason of decease
having taken place outside the District of
Fifth That the court erred in overruling
each and all prayers upon questions of law
asked by counsel for defense, and in refus
ing to instruct the jury as requested in each
of the fourteen prayers proposed by them.
Sixth That court erred on trial of this
cause in excluding proper evidence offered
by defendant as set forth in bill of except
ions. Seventh That court erred on trial of
this cause in admitting to go to the jury
improper evidence on the part of prosecu
tion as shown in bill of exceptions.
Eighth That court erred in commenting,
improperly during the trial upon tbe con
duct of the defendant in entering into an
arrangement with the district attorney
(without knowledge of counsel for defend
ant), whereby the jury and expert witness
es for prosecution during a portion of tbe
trial might observe certain conduct of de
fendant, to subserve the purpose of the
prosecution, the defense being insanity,
without the restraining power of the court
being exercised until those purposes were
accomplished, to the great prejudice of
Ninth Misbehavior of the jury in read
ing, or having read to them, newspapers
calculated to prejudice their minds against
defendant, as shown in affidavits of Freder

Tenth By reason of new and material
facts' unknown at time of trial, and not
ascertainable by reasonable diligence on the
part of defendant ot uia attorney, having
come to light since the trial, and shown in
affidavit hied herewith.
Eleventh That tbe verdict is contrary
to the evidence.
Twelfth That the verdict is contrary to
the law of tbe case.

Utah, believes that in the contest in which
he is now engaged for his scat with Camp
bell he will be successful.
Chicago, Jan. 30. An Inter Ocean cor
respondent has interviewed all the Guiteau
jurors and obtained undisputed proof that
they nevei hart a paper while on the jury,
that none of them wrote their names: that
only once was a piece of newspaper found
in their rooms, and then it was delivered to
the bailiff; that they were more crrefully
gnarded and observed than the prisoner;
that one whose name was found in that pa
per spoken ot in the liuiteau affidavit was
misspelled; that the name of another was
written in 'ierman, a thing he never did
unless by special request; (that another
man's name appeared who had been unable
to handle a pen on account of nervous afflic
tion ; that there was no ink in the room,
whereas the writing on the papers was in
ink, that J. W. Guiteau called on the jurors
and got their names in an autograph album
and asked leading questions whereon to
found his affidavit.
The four jurymen whose signatures, it is
alleged, appear in the Critic appended to
affidavits filed by defense in the Guiteau
case Saturday' with the motion for a new
trial, deny most positively that a copy of
that or any other paper was ever in their
apartments or hotel. They say they never
had a pen in their hands during the whole
course of the trial except to write auto
graphs for outside parties, and that this
was always done in a room occupied by the
baliff, and in the immediate presence of the
officers. The general impression of those
who have examined the matter is that it is
a clever piece of forgery.
The bill prepared by the judiciary com
mittee of the Senate, for the suppression of
polygamy, which will be vigorously pushed
to a vote, provides that no polygamist shall
sit on juaies or exercise the right of suffrage,
or hold office. Cohabitation with more
than one woman will be accepted as a proof
of a polygamous marriage. Another section
provides for the appointment of five regis
trars of election by the president.
Washington, Jan. 30. It is stated with
much positiveness that President Davis of
the senate favors the admission of Dakota
into the union. He thinks, it is said, the
southern portion of Dakota is entitled by
reason of population and other considera
tions to admission, ami that it is not a
question for partisan consideration. Judge
Davis' vote, combined with that of the re
publicans, would give the bill a majority,
and as republicans control tbe house, it
would appear that the measure has a good
prospect of becoming a law the present
Washington. Jan. 30. The Post has an
interview with ex-Secretary Blaine upon
the subject of diplomatic correspondence
relating to Chili and Peru. The secretary
says the statement published that his in
structions to Mr. Trescott signed by him
had been drafted and committed to Trescott
without the knowledge of the president,
has absolutely no foundation in truth.
The instructions were not only talked over
fully with theresident, but when written
were twice read to him for criticism and
change. I have the original draft iu my
possession with modifications desired by the
president clearly noted. It is inconceivable
that au extraordinary mission, important
enough to be mentioned in the annual mes
sage to congress, could be allowed to leave
the country without the president knowing
the instructions by which its action should
be governed. No friend of the president
could possibly make that suggestion, and on
his behalf I reply that the president specific
ally referred in his message to the instruc
tions given to Mr. Trescott.
San Francisco, Jan. 20. The British
ship Cochin which arrived here yesterday
from Dundee, brought seven men who were
picked up in an open boat. The men be
longed to the British ship Milton, bound
from Newcastle, England, to San Francisco
with a cargo of coal. About 1 o'clock on
the 22nd of December, smoke was discover
ed coming through the after hatch and it
was soon known the vessel was on fire. The
men stood bravely by the pumps until 2
o'clock the following day, but the fire
spread and officers and crew were forced to
abandon the vessel. They staid by her for
nearly a day after taking to the boats. The
vessel was commanded by Capt. McArthur,
who was accompanied by his wife and two
children, and manned by 20 men. The first
boat contained tbe captain, his wife, chil
dren and five sailors; second boat, first offi
cer and seven men, and the third boat, the
second officer and five men. After abandon
ing the vessel, the 3 boats separated. On
the 15th of January the third boat contain
ing the second officer and five of the crew
was picked up by the Cochin, bound for
San Francisco. Nothing since has been
seen or heard of the other two boats, and
strong fears are entertained that all have
been Tost. Those picked up reported hav
ing suffered great hardships from thirst and
hunger and were too weak to stand alone
when resuced. They had lived for days ou
only a few dry biscuits, and for three days
before being picked up had drank nothing
but salt water and kerosene oil. On the
day following tbe desertion of the Milton
they had separated from the other boats.
Washington, Jan. 30. Bills were intro
duced in Congress by Berry proposing a
constitutional amendment prohibiting state
legislatures from voting on ratification
of constitutional amendments, except at
the regular sessions held following the elect
ions of the more numerous branch of the

meeting called some days ago was held at
Pilgrim Congregational church to-night.
The house was filled to overflowing with
the best citizens of the city. Rev. S. H.
-Nichols, presided and spoke. Speeches
were made by several persons mostly minis
ters, all of whom took strong ground against
the iniquitous practice and called upon con
gress to root it out. The committee on
resolutions reported a long address to sen
ators and representatives in congress from
Missouri, asking their earnest influence in
the preparation and passage of such meas
ures as will enable the government to nut
an end to polygamy in the territories, the
address treats polygamy simply as a felony,
but as one of the most baneful influences,
and asserts that congress has authority and
power to abolish it, and demands that
measures shall be taken te crush it.

Dear Me. Editor : As I have seen
some letters in the Gazette written by
young folks I thought I would try to write
short letter. I am a girl like the rest of
them, but am afraid that 1 have not such a
philosophical head as the four little girls
from Calaway's Station, anyway I don't un
derstand all the long words they used, per
haps they are esthetic. I can't see that
because a person is indifferent to the move
ment of the months and years that it indi
cates moral stagnation or limited intellectual
Comprehension. I very much agree with
them, however, in their wish for self im
provement, as that is something we all need.
Another thing I believe in is female suffrage
and shall be glad when the women can vote,
but I had better not discuss that I presume.
I remember hearing a certain phrase once,
and would like to know if any of the girls
can tell what it means. It is this: "The
imponderable pomponderosity of immacu
late phycbology." Good bye for the pres
ent. Georgia Herbert.
