,We publish in another column
the game law passed by the last
legislature and we particularly in
vite the attention of our readers to it
so that they may examine it care
fully. We do this more particularly
at this time because we frequently
notice - boys large and smal
going towards the rivers with hook
and line. To be sure it will be ob
served there are certain kinds of fish
that the law does nol-make it a penal
offence to catch at any time. As to
trout it is very plain and yet some of
our people so misunderstand the law
to mean that it is not unlawful to
catch the trout at any time with hook
and line, which is a grave mistake
and we fear some may get into diffi
culty over the matter.
Sec. T of the act makes it a misde
meanor for any person within the
state of Oregon to catch, kill or have
hi possession, sell or offer for sale any
mountain or brook trout, during the
months of November,. December,
January, February and March of each
year and during the above named
time it is therefore unlawful to catch
ifee trout in any manner, The same
section further makes it punishable
to catch the trout at any other time
of year in any manner whatever ex
cept with hook and line. It will be
seen, therefore, that if any of onr
citizens eat cb the trout during the
present month of March they are
offending against the lay and are
laying themselves liable no matter
what way or manner they adopt in

The senate passed the house bill
modifying the postal money order
system so as to authorize postmas
ters of money order offices, under the
atuhority of the postmaster-general,
to jssue postal notes in tho denomin
ations of five dollars and under.
This important bill will greatly fa
cilitate the business of sanding
smail sums ot money through the
mails. It also authorizes the issue
of money orders without correspond
ing advices ot five dollars and less,
to be on engraved paper and known
as postal notes, payable to bearer.
Such notes to be invalid after three
months. The holder can after that
time get par value by applying to
the postoflice department at Wash
ington. For issuing a postal note a
fee of three cents will be eharged.
This bill authorizes the issue of mon
ey orders in denominations of $100
or less. None for more than $100
can be issued. The following fees
are fixed for money orders: For or
ders not exceeding $10, 8 cents; from
$10 to 15, 10 cents; $15 to $30, 15
cents; $30 to $40, 20 cents; $40 to

TBS- WILLAMETTE VALLEY.
The constantly increasing immi
gration coming to the Pacific coast
assures us that our slate in a few
years, will be thoroughly peopled
and developed, says the Albany
Herald. Out connection with the
east by at least three lines of rail
roads, and connection with foreign
countries by a thorough system of
sea going vessels all soon to be a
thing of fact wiH produce rapid
changes in on? state's present condi
tion. There is an element in all com
munities that is uneasy and dissatis
fied, no matter how bealthy and flat
tering the prospect ' ahead. They
think some other pface better than
the one. in which their lot is cast.
Would it not be well for all such
people, in -view ot the important
changes coming upon us, to serionsly
consider the situation before folding
op their tents and stealing away in
search of something t hat is rapidly
coming to them ? When the state's
latent resources are thoroughly
aroused, and business has adjusted
itself to the new order of things, it
will be found that the Willamette
valley will lead all other localities in
the state in varied industries and
amount, of business done. This fact
will hit every mans' business intuition
if it is susceptible of impression. The
Willamette valley is destined to be
come a great manufacturing center,
for the reason that it has abundance
of fuel, water-power and ore the
three leading factors that constitute
the basis of great manufacturing pos
sibilities. Its agricultural resources
is of the first order, and by patient
husbandry will excel any other local
ity on the Pacific coast. When these
two great business arteries are folly
developed and their profits blended,
commercial desire will wake from its
lethargy and come surging to the
front, to win its share of the trans
portation of an immense production
to foreign states. By a high order
of husbandry, manufacturing devel
opment and commercial energy, the
Willamette valley and valleys tribu
tary thereto, will become the Eden
spot ot Oregon and ncearnest effort
of the wary speculator or bloated
monopolist can reverse this decree.
STATEMENT CONCERNING RAILROAD COM
BINATIONS BY TELEGRAPH FROM
John Muir superintendent of traffic
for the western divisions of the
Northern Pacific railroad, who will
soon assume the position of superin
tendent of traffic of all the Northern
Pacific & Oregon Railway & Navi
gation Companies' lines, was in Chi
cago and from him a reporter of the
Tribune learned full particulars of the
agreement recently entered into be
tween the Oregon Railway & Navi
gation Company and the Union Pa
cific for interchange of through traffic
to Portland, Oregon, via the Union
Pacific fc Oregon Short Line, and
other matters of interest regarding
the doings of the Northern Pacific fc
Oregon Railway & Navigation Com
panies. Mr. Muir said that under
the new agreement the Oregon Rail
way & Navigation Company is to
extend its Baker City line to Snake
river, where junction with the Union
Pacific fc Oregon Short Line will be
made. The distance from Portland"! his stomach refused to retain nourish
ment, owing to an attack of neuralgia
of the bowels. The pain was very
great and he took quantities of mor
nhioe to keep it down and quiet the
system. He became weaker day after
day but last Monday he became very
despondent and said, "1 am going to
die." Under the continued use of
morphine he became very quiet and
was most of the time unconscious
with lucid intervals. Gov. Colquitt
called on him yesterday morning
and Mr. Stephens bade him come in
but before he reached the bedside a
message was si:nt saying Mr. Steph
ens was too ill to see him and no one
except the family and physicians
were admitted to his bedside. Yes
terday about 12 o'clock Dr. Ratios
-announced that he was resting quiet
ly. There seemed to be little alarm
among the members of the house
hold. He had been near death's door
so often before, and has been rescued
by such miracles of vitality and
nerve, that they confidently counted
on his strength to pull him through
this crisis. He has been an invalid
for fifty years and his life- despaired
of a dozen times. Col. R. F. Maddox
called to see the governor yesterday
and found him vomiting freely. Be
tween his gasps the indomitable man
looked up and said, quickly: "Is that
you, Speer f Colonel Maddox cor
rected him, and Mr. Stephens said, in
the meantime having vomited again:
"It is so daife I can't see you." He
then said: "They say that this coffee
is making me vomit. Well, the hair
of a dog is good for a bite, so I be
lieve I'll take a little more." Upon
leaving the house Col. Maddox asked
Aleck, the boy who attends Mr.
Stephens, what he thought of his
master's condition. Aleck said, "I
believe I have seen him as sick be
fore, but I never saw. him out of his
head. I have noticed another thing.
For a few weeks he has heen talking
continuously in his sleep, a thing I
never heard him do before." Maj.
Jim Warren said, "Mr. Stephens, is
literally working him-self to death.
He insists on supervising every de
tail of his office and will allow us to
do nothing without his direction. If
this attack were to prove fatal, Gov
ernor Stephens' last official act would
be the signing ot Senator Colquitt's
commission, which was issued a few
days ago." About half past one
o'clock Mr. "Stephens sank rapidly
into a deep stupor. The- family, Col.
John Stephens and wife, Col. Grier
and wife, Mrs. Linton Stephens and
the state house officers rapidly
grouped around the bed of the dying
governor, and the minutes passed
painfully by until at last he sank
away in a quiet gasp at 12 o'clock.
His funeral will take place in Craw
tordsville, Ga., where he will be in
terred by the side of his father. J.
S. Boynton president of the senate,

and the Union Pacific is to take no
business for Portland via San Fran
cisco. An agreement has also been
made with the Union Pacific to lay
a third rail to Helena and the mouth
of the Little Blackfoot in Montana,
and also to lav a third rail from the
mouth of the Little Blackfoot to
Butte City, and on this agreement
the Union Pacific will run to Helena

ANOTHER RAILROAD SWINDLE.
The New York Times very appro
priately says: One of the pernicious
and dishonest measures recently
pending in Congress, and songht to
be forced through in the last days
ot the session, was the proposition to
consolidate the Texas Pacific and
Southern Pacific Railway Companies.
The first named concern was granted
a large tract of laud in Texas, and a
further concession of lands from the
United Stales in the Territories west
ward of the Texas boundary and in
California;. The Southern Pacific
Road was built by the profits of the
Central Pacific Railroad, and had
no land grant. The Southern Pacifio
Railway builders outstripped those
of the Texas Pacific in the race
across the continent, and a junction
and treaty bet ween the two corpo
rations was effected and agreed upon.
The proposed "consolidation," in
brief, is to permit the com
bined companies to grab $25,000,000
worth ot lands which the Texas
Pacific did not earu and to which
the Southern Pacific was never en
titled by any law or act of Congress.
It is a grab, pure and simple, de
signed to fill the pockets of a grasp
ing coterie of railway magnates.
This is a job which should be defeated.
Sine the late freeze we have
talked with farmers from different
localities all over the county and
some from outside of the county and
the universal verdict from all of
them is that the fall sown wheat is
entirely killed, not enough of it re
maining alive to be of any conse
quence whatever. Nearly all of
them so far as we can learn will be
able to obtain seed and intend to re
sow. It is generally conceded that
with the advantage gained in the
freeze having killed all foul stuff on
the land and having left thc ground
in fine condition, if it car be resowed
in good season, larger crops will
likely bo the result than would have
been produced had there been no

be the result.

DEATH OF ALEXANDER STEPHENS.
Recent dispatches announce the
death of Alexander Stephens, one o
Americas noted men,.who has dur

in American politics. The following
by telegraph gives the details of hid
last sieknessr The excitement and
fatigue of his trip to Savannah pros
trated him. Mr. Stephens lives in a
temperature of 73 degrees or higher.
When he left Atlanta to go to Savan
nah he had a car heated to 67 de
grees, and kept it there all the time.
As the car neared Savannah it ran
into the heaviest fog known for some
time. Anticipating trouble from
riding through this to his hotel, the
governor telegraphed to Savannah
for a close carriage. Upon arrival
he found that it hacF been provided,
but the windows were down and
could not be closed. He sat in the
carriage with this clammy fog pene
trating his system and chilling him
through for about thirty minutes.
Upon reaching the hotol be went to
bed and was so sick that he did not
have strength to rise until about 10
o'clock, and he has never fully re

received. When he left Savannah
the temperature was about eighty.
When he reached Atlanta the tem
perature was about 40 and chilly.
He drove to his home early in the
morning and immediately took to his
bed, and has never been out of it
since. He was impatient under his

contested election cases that he was
anxious to attend to and get out of

From farmers and others representing
different sections of this and adjoining coun

Times learns that not only are all kinds of

weather last fall being followed by the ex

On Tuesday last, says the Palouse Oazeite,
while the stage from Dayton was endeavor

creek, the horses we-e caught by the cur

horses, vehicle, driver and all were carried
toward Snake river by a rapid and powerful
current. Fortunately for the driver, just
before the river was reached the stage
caught on a projecting rock and he was
thrown upon the bank. The moment the
stage struck the tongue broke close up to
the axle, and the horses went down and
were carried under the ice into Snake river.
They have not been seen since. 1 he stage

illustrated, and containing an "Index of
Diseases," which gives the symptoms, cause
and the best treatment of each; a table giv
ing all the principal drugs used for the
horse, with the ordinary dose, effects and
antidote when a poison, a table with an en
graving of the horse's teeth at different
ages, with rules for telling the age of the
horse; a valuable collection of receipts, and
much other valuable information. In pre
paring copy for this book it was the aim of
the author to make it as plain as possible
for the non-professional readers, and give
them information which is of the greatest
importance to horsemen, and yet avoiding;
all technical terms as mueh as possible, and
also condensing the book as much as pos
sible without leaving out the real essential
information in treating each subject. Every
farmer or horse-owner should own one of
these little books.
