Milton F. Pavis, of McCoy, Polk county,
has received the appointment to West Point
through Congressman Biuger Hermann, of
this state, says a Portlaml exchange. There
hm ii.-ea quite a contest over the uadntshin,
a, number of applicants having applied for
tue aupointuie:it. Mr. Davis, who received
the appointment, is about "20 years of age,
and was appointed on his true merits hav
ing undergone a thcrough elimination, and
found thoroughly competent ami tit-for the
position. Regarding the appointment Con
gressman Hertnauu has written the follow
ing letter to a member of the hoard here:
"After much reflection I have settled the
matter of the cadetship by appointing Mil
ton F. Davis. I have found my principal
reliance on the result of your examination.
Physically he was as good as any. Had the
variance not been so great I might have lis
tened to the (treat influence brought to bear
for others, but I think in this republic a boy
should stand no his own merits, and having
great conlidence in the flatting of the board,
I could not do otherwise than nominate the
one aisown by it to be far ahead of all other
competitors. I again thank you most kind
ly for your aid. Yours truly.
This settles the case for the present. Mr.
Davis will have to undergo a very critical
physical and mental examination before his
admittance to the school at West Point
Readers will remember the board examined
all ihe candidates in this city and of these
reported favorably on three. Of these three
Congressman Herman has selected Mr. Davis
principally because of his superior standing
mentally, as evinced in his examination.
White Broazi liotuments.
Mr. J. A. Cardwell the general agent for
the State of Oregon for the White Bronze
Monuments writes us saying that "he heard
some reports while at Independence that
"the White Bronze Monuments at our cem
etery had become both rusty and blafck. "
In reply to this infamous falsehood no doubt
gotten up by some person who sella the
worthless marble, granite and stone monu
ments of the present day, which cracks,
crumbles, aud decomposes within twenty or
thirty years, so that it is aim is t worthless,
we desire to say; that the "White Bronze
Monuments" in our cemetery here, have
not changed their color or appearance a par
ticle since the day they were put up, over
one year ago, also another of like material
which we pnt up in Lee Mission Cemetery
one mile east of Salem i3 in a like beautiful
condition. These Monuments being made
f pure zinc they will last as long as time
and as long as the native zinc will in the
mines from where it is dug. It is not a
composition, but is made of pure zinc, hence
those common liars who go around the
couutry saying it will rnst or change its
color should post themselves in order that
they may not appear as ignoraut as?es mak
ing assertions contrary to the laws of nature.

And now it appears that the bill "regula
ting and simplifying proceedings in jastices
courts" never passed the senate, says the
Astorian, and is therefore no law, though it
was "approved" by the governor and ap

ion laws of 1885.
It is considered certain, says the Astorian,
that Saunders, editor of the Benton Leader
will get the Col VauOleve's place as collector
of customs at Yaqninal The position is
worth no less than 05 dollars a year and
will prove a handsome add ition to a news

county, Oegon, who was accused of inter
cepting a letter. Mr. Talbott was exam
ined aud held to answer before the United
States grand jury in bonds of $250, which'he
will have no difficulty in securing. The
histery of the case was in short as follows:
Mr. A. T. Workman, now of Portland,
formerly resided in Sodaville, where he had
business interests. He has a lady corres
pondent in Ohio, who Bent him a letter ad
dressed to Sodaville, which he received in
Portland July 8th, and was dated in Ohio,

Mr. Talbott explains the case by saying
that some weeks ago he was requested by
Mr. Workman's father to address a letter
to his son in Bast Portland, aud is positive
he has not opened any letter belonging to
Mr. Workman. In justice to Mr. Talbott
it may be said he has never before been in
trouble, has an untarnished reputation and
the record of a good, square man in the
section where he lives. The case waa re
ported to the postoftice inspector sometime
ago and has been made puplic for the first
