fever at the residence of Prof. Johnson in
Eugene, says the Jonrnal. The remains
were buried m tbe Odd Fellows cemetery,
and the clothing was taken to the family
residence near Goshen. Recently the
clothing was taken out of the trunk, and
the fever started. Frank, the eldest son,
was the first to take it. He died on Mon
day, Oct, 15th, and was buried the follow
ing day. The father, W. Thomas Walker,
died last Monday, Oct. 22d, aged about 55
years. Two graud children, who were at
his house, died the same day, one a girl,
aged about 3h years and the other a boy,
? ed about 2J years. The name of the
children is Bailey. The remains of Mr.
Walker and his two grand children were
buried last Tuesday in the Odd Fellows
cemetery near Eugene, being five of the

Mr. Coll. Garrett a young man about 28
years of age accompanied by Mr. James
Cane of this county, last Tuesday evenini?
about five o'clock attempted to cross the
Willamette river at Peoria. Mr. Garrett
was managing the boat but had never had
any experience of much consequence in
running the ferry. When they got into
the middle of the stream the current was
very swift and Mr. Grrrett had hold of the
wheel and was holding the boat sideways
to the current so that nearly the full weight
of the water came directly against the boat.
The pressure was so heavy that the spokes
in the wheel either broke or else pulled
loose from Mr. Garretts grasp which let
Mr. Garrett pitch forward toward the
wheel, one of the spokes struck his head
just above the left temple and another one
a little above and back of the left ear, both
places the skull was crushed through to the
brain. On Wednesday morning the young
man was yet alive but not expected to live.

Editor Gazette : I have been as far
east as I purposed going when I left home,
that was Springfield. 1 went there for the
purpose of seeing Oak Ridge cemetery
and Lincoln monument, and also to go
through the State capitol, said to be the
finest building in the United States; and so
far as my own observation and inspection
has been it certainly is ahead, as the es
timate of cost now reaches the enormous
sum of six million dollars, and will take
two million more to complete the structure.
As for the Lincoln monument and the tomb
of the martyred president, it is simply a
representation of the man and his deeds,
that is to say sublime, grand, and beautiful,
and think that definition is the best possi
ble description myself or any tourist can
give of it. As I walked around the vast
pile of granite blocks, furnished by each
State, if course it was natural for me to
look for the block furnished by our own be
loved Oregon, and at last the block was
pointed out by the guide, with the letters
"On" cut upon it, and I told him that
them letters at home would in no case
meau Oregon, and expressed the wish that
Or. be substituted in its place.
As to this country, (111. ) its agricultural
resources are itnmeuse, both in soil and pro
duction, yet in many essential features I
am disappointed, as I supposed that after
an absence of 40 years that on my return
each homestead would be beautifully decor
ated with tine buildings and orchards and
flower gardens and shade trees, and all
necessary improvements far beyond my own
rude conception of such thiugs, but alas to
my astonishment and disappointment, every
State through which I have passed is be
hind the Willamette valley in all these im
provements; and in the matter of churches
aud schools in the rural districts we are
fully up if not ahead. As au instance,
where I am now stopping, 16" miles from
Quincy, in an old rich district, not a church
in a radius of six miles, and not a Sabbath
school in any neighborhood I visited outside
of the towns and cities. Strange as this
may seem it is neverthe'ess true. How
proud I am to say that even Soap Creek can
discount such a state of morals as this.
But I find I am scribling this letter much to
long for your paper, and may be to long for
any one to drag through, so I close by say
ing to all who have homes in the Willam
ette that think of changing localities, my.
advice is to "look before you jump,"

A large whale was killed by Indians off
Cape Fattery a few days ago. They sur
rounded the animal with seven large canoes
and literally filled him with spears, to each
one of which was attached a bladder to
keep him afloat. The whale lashed the
water with his tail to a foam, but the blad
ders proved too much for him, and he soon
succumbed and was towed off.

Second Report of the Utah Commission.
Washington, Oct. 30. The board of
Utah commissioners have submitted their
second annual report to the secretary of
the interior. After making a statement of
the former legislation of congress relative to
bigamy or polygamy they say the duties
of the commission appertain to matters of
registration and election, and eligibility to
office, while the punishment for the crime
of polygamy is left as under the former
law, to counts of justice. Under the anti
polygamy act the commission had good
success, at the general election in August,
1883, in excluding polygamists from the
polls, aud so far as it was advised very
few if any illegal votes had been cast in
Utah since the commission took charge of
registration and elections, in August, 1883.
The enforcement ot the present law against
12,000 polygamists, who have been exclu
ded from the polls, shows that the act has
beeu fully and successfully executed.
It is thought that discrimination be
tween those Mormons who practice polyg
amy aud those who do not, while not likely
to have much effect upon elderly men who
have already a plurality of wives, must
havo great weight with the .young men of
the territory, many of whom are ambitious
and aspiring and would not like to volun
tarily embrace political ostracism. The
very existence of a law disfranchising polyg
amists tend to destroy their influence,
whenever it is understood that discrimina
tion is to be permanent. The fact also that
it will be necessary to the preservation of
the political influence of the people's party
fas the Mormons style themselves) to have
a large body of their members who are not
polygamists, must tend to weaken the
practice of polygamy, for every Mormon
who takes but one plural wife loses three
votes for bis party his own and those of
his two wives, woman suffrage being es
tablished by law in Utah.
Coucerniug plurality of wives, the report
says that a doctrine and practice so odious
throughout Christendom should have been
upheld so many years against the laws of
congress and the sentiment of the civilized
world is one of the marvels of the nine
teenth century, and can be scarcely appre
ciated even by those familiar with the
In relation to the diffiulties of govern
ment control or suppression of religious
fanaticism, tbe report says that certainly
no government can permit a violation of
its laws under the guise of religious free
dom; and while congress may not legislate
to a mere mattei of opinion, yet it may de
nounce and punish as crimes those actions
which are in violation of social duties or
subversive of good order. The right of
congress to suppress this great evil is un
doubted. It is equally plain that the
dignity and good name of this great nation
among the nations of the earth demands
such congressional action as shall effectively
eliminate this national disgrace.
The commission renew the recommendr
tiou contained in the report of November
17, 1882, notably the one regarding the
enactment of marriage laws by congress,
declaring all future marriages in the terri
tory null and void, unless contracted and
evidenced in the manner provided by the
act. If the next legislature shall fail to
adopt measures in conformity with the pro
visions of the act of 1SS2 for the suppres
sion of polygamy, the commission will be
prepared to recommend and congress cer
tainly will not be disposed to delay, the
adoption of such stringent measures, com
patible with the limitations of Lhe consti
tution, as may be considered necessary for
the suppression of this great evil.
The report refers to various muni.-ipal
elections, aud says the most important elec
tion was that of August 6, 1883. The total
number of votes cast in this contest was
11,969, against 29,923 at the last Novem
ber election. The priucipal falling off was
on the part of the gentiles, or "liberal
party." In November the total vote of the
people's or Mormon party was 23.0S9; lib j
ral, 4S84. In August, 18S3, the vote of
the people's party, 20,508; liberal 1453.
From this it appears that a large number of
liberals refrained from voting, a fact much
to be regretted, for the reason that it is be
lieved that by proper efforts and good man
agement one or more non-Mormons might
have been elected to the legislature, who
could have had an opportunity of putting
a majority on record.
In conclusion the commission say that re
cently some ten suits were instituted in 'the
third district court of Utah by Mormons
against numbers of this commission, com
plaining that they had been unjustly de
prived of the right to register and vote.
These are understood to be test cases, de
signed to contest the constitutionality of
the Edmunds act, as well as the legal con
struction which should be put upon its pro
visions. The suits are still undecided, and
are likely to be appealed to the supreme
court of the United States.
It has been asserted that polygamous
marriages have increased since the passage
of the Edmunds act. On the contrary we
have the opinion of many Mormons and
non-Mormons that they have comparatively
decreased since the passage of the act.
After diligent inquiry we believe the latter
conclusion is correct, but the Utah legisla
ture will have an opportunity of satisfying
the country on this particular point, or
passing such public marriage acts as that
which we have suggested to congress. By
this, and such other legislation as we have
indicated, they will give the government
assurance of their loyalty and patriotism,
and avert a contest that cannot but result
in their discomfiture.
. We consider it proper to commend the
zeal of the governor of Utah in his efforts
to enforce the laws."

A short time since and the subject of
this notice was the ornament of his family.
He stood at the head of his dear ones as
husband and father, and from that high
position he has fallen suddenly and forever.
His intercourse with the living world is
uow ended, and closed forever are those
lips on whose friendly words we have so
often and so lately hung with trausport.
From the darkness which rests upon his
tomb there proceeds a light in which it is
closely seen that those gaudy objects which
men pursue are only phantoms, the bubble
which seemed to have so much solidity has
burst and we again see that all below the
sun is vanity.
His remains were taken to Albany on
Thursday for interment in the Jewish ceme

large number of sorrowing friends. R

Where Ilowers so quickly fade.
