The "Roseburg Review" says: "The
party lash is being used to its utmost
to coerce Gov. Moody into calling an
extra session," to which the "Roseburg

The case of Mrs. Yesolte Dudley,
just tried in New York, was a strong
reminder in some ways of the infa
mous trial of Guiteau, says an ex
change. The prisoner's boistrous in
terruption of witnesses, and the at
tempt of the defense to establish an
emotional or conditional insanitary are
points of similarity that recal most hu
initiating memories. As to Rossa, the
intended victim of this nondescript
criminal, his taking off would not have
been a calamity in any sense, yet it is
hardly just for this fact to enter as an
element into the trial. There is no
no doubt that plenty of English phys
icians can be brought to testify to the
unsound condition, mental and phys
ical, of the prisoner, and as the case is
a small representation of England vs.
Ireland, her acquittal was from the
Senator Conger in an interview re
lating to the president's appointment's
and the senate's power of confirmation,
said: "It may as well be understood
that we have conferred with each other
exchanged views, and to a certain ex
tent formulated plans for next winter
When nominations come in you may
put it down as pretty certain that re
publican senators will concede to the
president the absolute right to name
men of his own choosing for any of
the two kinds of positions. First,
those whose terms of office have ex
pired; sscend, those positions which
are in any way connected with the
policy of the administration. This is
for precisely the same reason that a
president should and does not have the
privilege of naming his own cabinet.
There is hardly "a ease on record where
the senate has in any way interfered
with such appointments. "
One of the mo-,t popular features of
the new postal law, which went into
effect on the 1st, is the "emergency
clause1' which it contains. By this
provision if a letter is addressed to a
free delivery office, or a city or town
containing 4,000 inhabitants or over,
-ind has attached to it the special ten
eeut stamp sold by postmastersfor the
purpose in addition to the regular post
age of two cents for each ounce or
under tho letter will be delivered to
any place within a mile of the postof
fice addressed immediately after its re
ceipt, between 7 o'clock in the morn
ing and 12 at night. The advantage
of this arrangement can be readily
recognized by business men whose cor
respondence frequently remains in
postoffices, uncalled for, until it be
comes valueless. Iu cases of sickness
or emergencies of any character what
ever, the importance cf prompt deliv
ery cannot be over-estimated.
THE LOCAL PAPER.
The local paper is the best read pa
per in the world. All the city papers
cannot supply the place of the home
paper. No other contains the mar
riages anil deaths to say nothing of
births and divorces. No other paper
gives the time of the next ball, picnic
or political meeting; no other publishes
the "roll of honor"of the public schools;
no other discusses the affairs of the
tovn and country or gives in ' details
the local news, which can be obtained
from no other source. "Everybody
reads it," and this is why the local pa
per is the best read in the world, and
the best advertising medium for its
eireulation extant. Whitelaw Reid.
Jjj reply to the above an exchange
says this is only re-eeohing the state
ments of the best and most successful
business men of the world, yet the
trouble is their opinions, differ from
the towns peeple where the local paper
is published, for yon approach one of
them who have got on a spot as big as
a bushel for ten hours waiting for a
customer to straggle into their place of
business by mert accident and ask
them to advertise in your paper, the
the first reply is that they can not see
as an advertisement does them any
good when they go on and on from
day to day wearing out the seats of
their browsers against the bottom of a
chair because they are afraid to invest
a few dollars by telling the people at
large through their local paper that
they have something to sell and the
kind of business they are proposing to
do. When you find town where
pneh people predominate the cown is
dead, and such people are virtually
dead so far as any interest they take
in public enterprises. Newspapers,
the local papers of a town are public
enterprises and are of more use and
benefit to the public than any individ
ual not excepting even the parties who
own them, and a town or community
of business men who will not support
their local papers by advertising their
business in them ought to be com
pelled to do without a local paper,
in fact such people are too ignorant f
this world's blessings to read intelli
gently. Such people want to enjoy
the benefits of public enterprises with
out costing them anything.
KEE01C GRANT .
Heroism can only be defined as the
supreme effort that raises man above
all selfish considerations, in his desire
to benefit minkind. Can there be a
grander spectacle in our commercial
age than that of a man accustomed to
win his laurels in the smoke and car
nage of battle, quietly seated in his
invalid chair a sure prey to a dendiy
disease that has clutched him by the
throat, and is slowly but surely .stran
gling him while his mind, too great
to be fettered by the ills of the flesh, is
engaged in the arrangement and record
ing of facts vithout which the weight
of authority or many important sub
jects would be unevenly balanced 1
Acts of heroism and devotion are com
mon and it is not necessary to go
beyond one's immediate circle of ac
quaintances to recognize them. Yei
there is nothing that appeals with
more vigor to our sympathies than a
strong man conquered by an incurable
disease, while in full possession of his
mental power; and devoting his last
hours to the accomplishment of an ob
ject upon the completion of which the
word "finis " will be indicative of the
grandest heroism of the present. It
needs no second thought to bear the
head and pass on in silence. Demo
A STARTLING STCRY.
New Orleans, July '2. A local
paper publishes to-day a statement
that over one million dollars have been
coined at the New Orleans mint of
which there is no official record. The
coinage act of 1873 made it the duty
of the director of the mint to have a
general supervision of all United
States mints ami assay offices. The
first director acting under that law
was Hon. H. It. Landerman, and in
his report on the subject he gives sta
tistics of coinage in several mints,
showing the total amounts and denom
inations of money made at each place
for each year of their existence. The
New Orleans mint was opened for bus
iness in 1838, and subsequently money
of every denomination was made there.
The director's statement is brought
down to January 31, 1861, up to
which time there had been a total coin
age at the New Orleans mint, in both
silver and gold, of 69,943,093. The
date at which tho directors report clo
ses was the date at which the mint
fell into the hands of the confederates.
Documents lately brought to light, it
is said, show that subsequent to the
mint going into the hands of the con
federates and up to May 30 of the
same year, there were coined $254,000
in gold double eagles, 1,101,216 50 in
silver half dollars, thus making a total
coinage of $1,355,216 50, while the
mint was in the enemy's hands. What
was done with the money does not ap
pear from any available records, lu
the fa?t of coinage as stated is shown
on the books of the coiner of that time,
and in order to make up the true
amount of actual coinage of the New
Orleans mint this sum must be taken
into account. There was no regular
coinage of precious metals, although
the New Orleans mint remained in
their control until the eity was taken
by federal forces.
CAUSE OP THE 'WORLD-WIDE DULLNESS
Not only San Francisco and Cali
fornia but all the world has complained
of hard busines and dull trade in
1884-5, says the San Francisco Journal
of Commerce. There is not a civilized
nation where the same wail has not
gone up from the merchants.
This has set thinkers to speculating
on the causes of it. What can it be
over-production, or a lessened supply
of gold, or what? Some time since a
writer on a leading English magazine
set down the cause to over-production.
Now while there was some specious
ness in his theory and his illustrations,
yet the fact that consumption has
about kept pace with production, mili
tated considerably ajjainst it. Now
comes another writer and takes the
ground that the lessened p- oductien
of gold is the cause. He makes out a
very good case and shows that the
supply has lessened and that prices
have dropped simulantaneously, argu
ing from cause to effect; still he lacks
something in his argument.
It is very true that lessened prices
have been productive of the trouble as
that means lessened, means for all with
stocks of goods and lessened returns
to producers, while expenses are about
the same as they have been. The de
ficiency or contraction of the circnla
lating medium is undoubtedly the cause
of this. But that contraction is due
no doubt, to the demonetization of sil
ver, and let other nations admit it as
legal tender equally with gold, and
then the fact of the decline in produc
tion of the latter will not be felt.
Without this, or the extensive use of
paper money, or universal drouth and
failure of crops, contraction must go
on. Alex Del Mar shows that even
Russia, which showed a steady produc
tion of gold, of unvarying amount, is
also aboii,. to show a decline in its pro
duction. Let the United States lie the
first to return to reason on the silver
THZ UNIVD STATS3 SENATORS,
T!ie Washington correspondent of
the Indianapolis News gives a detailed
account of the probable struggle for
twenty five Senatorial seats. He takes
up the contest in each of the various
States, but by some oversight entirely
omits the State of Oregon upon whose
elections the control of the U. S. Sen
ate may turn. The n-xt Legislator
of Oregnri will have two U. S. Sena
tors to elect unless the Governor calls
a special session of the present Legisla
ture, which mostof his intimate friends
think h"e will do, but which is still in
volved in "doubt. If the present Leg
islature is not convened in special ses
sion, the contest next year in this State,
will be unusually exciting. The con
trol of the federal offices will not ac
complish for the Democrats all they
anticipate, and the Republicans will
probably be in better trim for making
a vigorous canvass than they were last
y.av, when they were fussing among
themselves over the distribution of pat
ronage. The dissatisfaction ameng
the Democrats over the appointments
made by the President will have a very
decided effect upon the zeal of some of
the membership, and they will be
found to take less interest in the can
vass than when they were inspired by
the hoDes of good things to come in
case the party was successful.
But for all this, it is the duty of the
Governor, so far as he can, to make
assurance doubly sure by convening
the Legislature in special session and
again placing the responsibility of the
election of a U. S. Senator where it
legitimately belongs. Tn this way
alone can he meet thetjust expectations
of his political friends. News.
