Held ior Manslaughter.
A decision was rendered by Judge More
land in the police court in the case of Frank
Wheeler, charged with killing Fred Swarz,
says the Orejonian The matter was
thoroughly inquired into by his honor, and
all authorities and cases cited were examin
ed. The judge could not find in the tes
timony taken that there was any motive in
Wheeler's action other than would be ex
hibited iu an ordioary quarrel, nor that
Wheeler premeditated the killing of anyone
It was pretty clearly established that Wheel
er drew hia pistol to shoot phalon, and that
he had no idea whatever of shooting Swarz,
and that the latter was killed by a stray
bullet, which was accidentally discharged
in the scuffle between Phalon and Wheeler,
though the testimony on this point was
quite conflicting, one witness sweating pos
itively that Phalon struck Wheeler with a
chair, thereby discharging the pistol, and
another eye witness testifying that there
was no chair in the room. After weighing
the testimony carefully the judge thouglit
he could not hold Wheeler on a higher
charge than manslaughter, and so ordered,
with bail fixed at $5000 to answer before
the grand jury. Up to a late hour last night
Wheeler had not furnished the required

A Kan Shot by the Premature Discharge of'
a gun at JCarshfleld, Coos County.
On Sunday afternoon, February 25, An
drew Hendrickson was shot and instantly
killed by William Phillips, superintendent
of the Eastpnrt Coal mine, at a shooting sal'
lery in Marshfield. Between tour and five
o'clock in the afternoon there were several
parties in the gallery, among them William
Bovrren, Andrew Hendrickson and William
Phillips, and previous to the shot that killed
Hendrickson, II. P. Whitney came along
and called Mr. Phillips outside on some
private business. Wm Bowren stepped
outside and asked Mr. Phillips to shoot with
him at the target. Mr. Phillips took the
first shot which struck near the. bull's sj?e-
Bowren then shot and came a little higher
up. Theu Mr. Phillips loaded the gun the
second time. In the act of loading the (run
he turned around to press the cartridge
home, when it accidentally went off, and
the ball lodged in Mr. Hendrickson's body
through or near the stomach. He was sit
tioe on the window sill at the time, and
jumped up wiien hit, but fell to the floor.
Mr. Phillips was in front of Mr. Hendrick
son and to the right, in the act of turning
around when the shot was tired. It was
neccessary either to back up or tnrn around
to get to the eighteen yard range. He was
in the'aet of raising the gun np when it
went off, at the same time pressing the car
tridge home end stepping back to take his
position to shoot.
Justice Hyde held an inquest and the ju
ry rendered a verdict to the effect that the
shooting was the result of carelessness.
Medical Lectures. -Mrs.
Anna M. C. Potts If. D., who com
mences a eerie3 of lectures on Physiology,
health and disease, at Hamilton's Hall, on
Tuesday evening next, is the recipient of so
many favorable press notices that we ieel
assured the citizens of Coivallis have a
veritable treat in store fof them. The
Oregonian of a recent date says: "It is not
often that our people are presented with an
opportunity of listening to a course of lec.
tures of sveh superior merit and real prac
tical worth. The lady in speaking of a
sound bitty, enunciated the following truths.
that there is a law that all moving bodies
change without attention. All animated
nature must wear out. Her remarks upon
tobacoo and alchohol and their serious ef
fects were especially striking and commend
able. The lectures were full of good sound
sense expressed in a way that everyone can
understand. Dr. Potts has proven herself a
jframatist of high order. The applause dur
ing the lecture was frequent and prolonged,
coming in very appropriately. Her private
lectures to ladies are spoken of in a -most
enthusiastic manner and are regularly at
tend 3d by our best ladies." We advise
everybody to attend Monday evening's
lecture. Remember the first lecture is free.
Wm. Ballard, aged 27, unmarried, with a
cloth around his head and no coat on his
back, crossed the" ferry Monday evening
from Benton county, and entered Albany
says the Democrat. He acted insanely.
and so was captured and taken care of over
night. Tuesday morning he was examined
and found of unsound mind, and at noon
was taken to East Portland by Sheriff
Humphrey. This io Wm's second offense,
he having been released from the asylum
last Decsmber. ,He is evidently the victim
of an abrse which is filling our insane asy -lum,
and while there are several sparks of
intelligence left in his brain, hs is most ter
ribly weak, intellectually and phyjically.
and probably will receive tie treatment be

The many friends of Mr. Henry Hays
throughout Lane and Linn counties will
regret to learn of his death, although he
had lived to a trood old aze, having been
born in Hardon county, Tennessee, in 1810,
savs the Eocene Journal. Those who knew
him besi werj his best fnends. He moved
to Oregon with his family from the State of
Missouri, in 1852, and located m Lane
county where he has ever since resided up
to his death on the 28th ultimo. He leaves
an acrid wife and seven children. Those

One of the boldest cases of burglary we
have heard of occurred last Sunday after
noon in this city, says the Albany Demo
crat. It was a beautiful afternoon and Mr.

with nearly everybody else in the city, took
a walk, locking all their doors before they
left. Cn returning at about five they found
their back door open with the marks of
pick-ax in the side, where it had been pried
open, and the pick on the piazza. They
immediately investigated matters and found
that the burglar had taken 36 in money
which he had brokenopen a drawer to get,
and a $30 silver watch, which he found in
Mr, Zeyss' working clothes.

The way to let your wants be known is to
advertise in the Gazette. When we ai
rived home one evening last week we found
already in our coop a lot of those nice hens
placed there by C. B. Wells who discovered
our appetite for chickens by means of a
small ad calling for relief. If any hens in
the .vorld will lay 3 eggs per day we feel
that these are the kind because they seem

Governor Moody on last Thursday ap
pointed J. C. Church, of the firm of Robin
son and Church, Eugene, county judge of
Lane county, says the Statesman. From
what we can learn the appointment of Mr.
Church is as good a selection as could be
made in Lane county.
Gov. Moody has been fortunate so far in
his appointments, as far as we have been
able to lea.ru, and we expect to be able to
refer to the administration of Mr. Moody
as one which all futurn administrations
might do well to emulate. So far he has
been the governor" of Oregon, not that of
some faction or clique, as has been too of
ten the case in the past.
Mr. Charles Tyler, brother of Henry and
Joseph Tyler and Ron of Mrs. Argabnght,
returned a few days ago front Eastern Ore-
. . . . . , - 3
gon, where ne nacl been neramg ana leeu-
ing stock dnring the winter. He met with
a very unfortunate accident while he was
out one morning feeding" stock during the
cold weather and upon going to the house
he placed his feet near the fire which started
him to jumping all round. Upon examina
tion he discovered that his feet had been
very badly frozen. He remained there long
enough to recover sufficiently to enable him
to start to the Willamette valley. On his
trip down however he lost his way and laid
out over night exposed again to cold which
injured his feet again. Upon talking with
his brother Henry he says that he may re
cover so far as to get along without trouble
in summertime but thinks he will always
suffer with themjin winter.
Gets a "Pros" Ticket.
One of the beauties and charms of an edi
tor's life is in dead-heading it on all occa-
sions. No one who has never tasted the
sweets of that bliss can begin to take in its
glory and happiness. He does one hundred
dollars' worth of advertising for a railroad,
gets a "pass" for a year, and rides twenty-
five dollars worth, and is looked upon as a
dead-head. He "puffs" a theater or concert
troupe ten dollars' worth, and gets one dol
lar in "complimentaries," and is thus passed
in "free." If the i hall is crowded he is
grudged the room he occupies, forf hia com
plimentaries were paying tickets the troupe
would be so much in pocket. He blows and
puffs a church festival or ice cream sociable
free to any desired extent, and barely gets
"thank you" for it; and if he should happen
to attend, his silver is as much epxected as
any other perspu's. He does more work for
the town and community than all the rest
of the pobulation put together, and genera
lly gets cursed for it all, while a man who
denotes a dollar for the Fourth of July or a
base ball club is gratefully remembered.
No it is a sweet thing to be an editor. He
passes "free," you know.

Real E3tate in Portland.
Mr. A. J. Young lately of this place but
recently moved to Portland made his appear
ance in our town last Tuesday after train
arrived. He gives a glowing account of
Portland its business and prospects. The
real estate interests are booming there but
he claims that there ia no excitement in the
matter. He says it is ft daily occurence to
see men of all sixes and kinds carefully ex
amining all portions of Portland where any
vacant lots arc to be found and when one of
them comes to a nice unimproved lot he will
look at it carefully from every stand point
and if it suits his idea of choice property he
will forth-with produce a map of the city
and after finding therefrom who it belongs
to he immediately makes his way down
town to some real estate dealers office and
negotiates fe- the purchase of the lot and
then perhaps he will return to select anoth
er piece and so on. Mr. Young is pleased
with his new business and will return bocd
after tranacting some business which he
came here on purpose to attend to.

Probably no other little town engages so
earnestly in the cultivation of good music
as Philomath; On Monday evenings a class
meets in one part of town, on Tuesday eve
nings a male quartette meets at the house
of one of the citizens; on Wednesday eve
nings a class in vocal music meets at another
place in town. On all the ether evenings
of the week the time is taken up by the
band or some of the classes above meutioned.
Organ, guitar, violin and cornet are to be
heard everywhere at almost all times. Prof.
Jones has vocal classes, instrumental classes,
teaches the brass band, composes his own
music, and does all he can; but always has
more than he can do. Mention ought to be
made of a composition, offered in a modest
way to the public at our last public rhet
orical, and done originally by Prof. Jones.
It was played as a duet by two of his class.
It was good and deserves a dedication far
more than much of the sheet music bought
of publishers. The Cantata otthe Months
and Seasons will not be offered at the close
of the present college term. The books
seam too slow in coming; but we trust that
so good a thing is only postponed.

A saloon Keeper Assaults a Man and Is Snot
The Marshfield, Coos county. News gives
an account of the killing of Charles Strand,
proprietor of the Palace saloon of that place
by Peter Poos, on Thursday morning. Feb
ruary 22il. It appears that on the previous
day a difficulty arose between them about
$2 50 bet on a game of cards, and angry
words were indulged in. They then sepa
rated, leaving the dispute unsettled, and
undoubtedly entertaining ill feelings toward
each other.. On Thursday morning Poos,
duly sober, walked into the Palace saloon,
took one drink and sat down by the stove,
while Strand, on seeing Poos enter, went to
the wood shed and procured a "salmon
club" which he had whitted out for the
occasion, and which was-made of fir timber.
He then walked into the saloon, and reach
ing for Poos with his left hand, raised the
club with his right, while Poos retreated a
few feet, till stopped by Strand, who was
about to strike, when Poos discharged his
revolver, the ball entering Strand's left
breast just above the collar bone, severing
the common carotid artery and cutting the
wiud pipe, causing death in a few minutes .
After hearing all of the evidence and the
argument of the attorneys, the prisoner was
discharged, the evidence clearly showing
that the killing was done in self defense.
