Mr. A. J. Henkle, tn rj eoinmnly known,
as Ja.son Henkle, whr.'. resides nar Phil
omath, lias been suffering for some time
with a fatty tumor of a cancerous mature
which had formed on the riht leg on the
inside just above and below the knee, ex
tending about teu inches in length, and
about six inches iu wi Itii. Drs. F. A.
Johnson and F. A. Vincent on last Friday
were called to see the patient, who cut out
the tumor. Mr. Henkle came out from un
der the influence of chloroform nicely and
stood the operation well. At last accounts
he was getting along as well as could be ex
pected. Democrat speech.
Not being present at the mctitini a friend
furnished us the points touched upon by
the speaker named, as follows:
W. r. Owens, of Douglas county, spoke
at the Court Hons:; on Friday eveuin of
last week. He claims to be a Democrat,
but judging from his speech we would think
him a sort of In le pendent. H j discussed
the Chinese question and the tariff. On
the whole he made a very light speech.
Mr. Owens says that with free trade there
would be more protection on wool than
now, for the wool comes here now as ballast
and pays no freight with a tariff forerunner
of fire cents per pound and freight of ten
cents per pound there would be a protect
ion on wool of fifteen cents per pound. The
idea of 10 cents per pound freight is pre
suming a little too much on the ignorance
of the people of Benton county. Ten cents
per pound is very high freight; two hun
dred dollars per tou is a little too high
even for these times of high freight. Mr.
Owens tries to show the farmers that they
will be protected en their wool by free
trade. The freight on wool could not
exceed one cent per pound so Mr. Owens'
little scheme falls through.
to injure him in some way. Denick sunk
and never again come to the top. At the
time of going to press the body had not
been recovered. The team and hack with
j young Abbey hanging to them went down
; the river quite a distance and finally came
I to the bank where it was too steep for them
to get out easily. Young Abbey soon
caught one of the horses by the tail and
crawled out across his back to the shore.
Some persons near by went to the scene
and assisted in getting the team and hack
out on dry land.
John Dick was the son of George Den
ick who died a year or two ago at this place.
Johnny as he was usually called was one of
the most quiet and well disposed boys in
the commuuity and bore the promise of grow

Commencement Exercises of Corvallis
The Preparatory Department came out
with a large programme of new pieces. The
large Hall was tilled before the time for the

All of these knew their parts and performed
them well. Their enunciation was clear
and distinct and their pronunciation was
unusually correct for little boys and girls.
Rigtlt here, the baud came in for its share
of applause by playing an artis tic piece.
Jay W. Buford told about "Farmer

Washington, May 27. Republican mem
bers of the house are satisfied of the im
practicability of continuing the pres -nt
struggle without first seeming an amend
ment to the rules which will prevent a dil
atory motion aud a new Hue of action has
therefore been i'gtccded upon forncxt week.
On Monday immediately after reading the
journal, Reed will call up m amendment
to measure reported by him from the com
mittee on rules, wi ich, if adopted, will vir
tually prevent the putting of a dilatory mo
tion pending consideration of a question of
privilege. If, as they will undoubtedly do.
the Democrats interpose a motion to adjourn,
Heed will make a point of order that the
motion is a dilatory one and cau't be enter
tained. Pending consi.leiation of the prop
osition to amend the rules upon this poiut of
order he will ask that he be heard. Ban
da!! will probably speak to the point of or
der and the solution of the whole difficulty,
therefore, hinges upon the disposition of the
speaker. The feeling to-niuht is that the

that the water was too deep to venture in,
when youn Abbsy suggested to the other
that he jump out while he turned around
the hack, which was done. After turning
around young Denick attempted to get in
the hack again when the horses from some
cause become scared and jumped sideways

Tunnr! Work on the O. P. R. R.
Ed. Gazette: Knowing the interest felt
by your r aders in all that pertains to the
building of the Oregon Pacific Railroad, I
thought a few items in regard to the work
which is now being pushed forward by the
contractor (Mr. Bugl)ee) on the tunnels
would be of interest. Being on the line .of
the road during the past week, your corre
spondent iu company with a few friends vis
ited the works and noticed the workings of
those huge bores w'hich are soon to penetrate
the rock-ribbed mountains and open a road
for the iron-horse to pass hnnnreds of feet
beneath the forest-crowned summits of the
hills. Tunnel No. 1, 750 feet in length,
and tunnel No. 2, about 400 feet long, are
situated near the summit of the coast range
aud some little distance from the wagon
road; consequently we did not examine
thein closely, but fouud the approaches very
nearly completed and the workmen ready to

New York, May 27 The Trihune says:

Heise has written that if he undertakes the
work ho will require that a gallows similar
to that used by him in New Jersey shall be
used, and that he be allowed one assistant.
He also asks that the amount of compen
sation he increased. Van Heise has '-on-ducted
thirteen hangings in New Jersey,

New York, May 26.- The Times says of
recent appointments: If the President im
magines that, to stand well with the coun
try, it is necessary to appear as author of
"my policy," Or champion of "my party,"
we think he has made a greviona blunder.
If his policy is to consist in turning one set
of men out of office and putting another in,
merely to satisfy demands of his personal
adherence; if his party is to consist solely
of Arthur as distinguished from those who
are only Republicans, then he will show
that blunder of his predecessors who reached
the chief magistracy by the vice-presidential
succession have yielded him neither
instruction nor warning.

been taken from his safe while in custody of
the express company's messenger and after

The defense was that either the money had

removed before it came into possession of the
company's servants. This case lias excited
great intere&t and the verdict of the jury
leaves the uij stery still unsolved as to who
robbed the safe. Skillful detectives em

and it is believed that whoever the thieves
are they wiil soon be apprehended.
Denver, May 29. The railroad war of the

St. Louis, May 29. A Post-Dispatch
special from Independence, Mo., says quite
a flutter was occasioned this morning by the
arrival of Mrs. Frank dames and her five-year-old
son, Jesse. She arrived on the
train from the west and was met by her
father. Col Samuel Ralston. This is the
first time she has been at her home since
1877, and confirms the report that Frank
James will shortly receive an unconditional
pardon. She refused to say anything fur
ther about her husband, but sire added he
had been in bad health since the death of
Jesse and that he was at some watering
place. The general belief ia that Frank
James has already surrendered to Sheriff
Timbeilake. Her little boy, Jesse, is a
remarkably good shot with a revolver.
Chicago. May 29. A special from Omaha
to the Times, says the Union Pacific officials
were asked about the so-called advance of

wagon materials and hardware, and says a
change was agreed to by all lines concerned,
the Central Pacific, Southern Pacific. Union
Pacific, Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe. St.
Louis, Iron Mountain & Southern, and Mis
souri Pacific. The change was made for
the purpose of protecting dealers on the
water routes. It is not an advance, but a
discrimination agaiust dealers who ship
partly by water.
