Last lriday night about eleven o'clock
the barn of Miles Starr about two miles
north of Monroe was burned. It contained
tw.nr. t went v tons of hay, a header, drill.
hay rske and mower also several head
hugs. AU were consumed.
attention has been called this week to
l.rrro onions on exhibition in the office
of Waggoner & Baford, the largest measured
eighteen and the smallest sixteen inches in
circumference. They were raised by Win.
Ridenour on land betweeu here and Ya
quinBay. They bear not only the result
of good productive soil, but also that they
have come by hands of good farming.
Mr. jackson, from the Eistern States,
has been over to the Bay with Mr. T. J.
Buford on the hunt of a farm suitable for
extensively raising crauberries. He has
had much experience in the Bast in this
busiuess and intends going into the work on
the large scale, providing he can he favored
with a suitable locality. This is a new
business for our county and he should re
ceive all the encouragement possible to be
stow. East of the Mountains.
Nick Baesen and John Mensinger left this
place last Sunday to make an extended trip
East of the mountains and look at the coun
try. It has already been suggested by
some of our citizens that they had other
motives for going away at this particular
time besides to simply look at the country.
In other words it has been hinted that they
want away to remain until after the Novem
ber term of Circuit Court, in irder to escape
testifying before the grand jury in relation
to the row which occured in a saloon in this
city a few month ago, in which Sid Moore,
McTirnmons, Baesen and Mensinger figured
prominently. We believe the suggestion,
however, to be a wrong one, because we
hardly, think these men would take snch a
course in order to prevent justice from tak
ing its course. If, however, they have
went away for any such purpose, the court,
should continue the case until their testimo
ny can be had.
Dowden got the Damsels Drank
On last Sunday evening a man answering
to the ramp of Mitchell Dowden secured a
good supply of whiskey and took the near
est road to the Indian camps near Marys
river bridge. Dowden and his demijohn
were soon on the spot and the "children of
the forest" made him a welcome visitor
when they discovered he had snch a good
supply of corn juice. The bottle was passed
until the entire party got beastly drunk
and Dowden reigned supreme. They built
a bon tire and were having a big time when
th hilarity of the occasion was interrupted
by a controversy that ended in a big tight
in which Dowden was the principal pugilist.
Deputy U. S. Marshal Pygall soon heard of
the disturbance, and after learning the par
ticulars he escorted Dowdeu to a room iu
the city calaboose and on Wednesday morn
ing bought his ticket to Portland where he
will answer the charge of giving whiskey to
Caxnpmeeting near Philomath.
Humor has it that numerous instances
have occured in the last week or two. in
which, hoodlums and young outlaws, have
congregated, in and aliout the grounds near
Philomath, where campmeeting was being
kald, wherein they attempted to and in
some instances did distnrb the exercises in
different ways. If such is the case all such
intruders and petty outlaws should lie
brought to justice as the law prescribes.
In this country people should be permitted
unmolested to hold gatherings of different
kinds and to worship in any way they please
and any young outlaws who can uot behave
at such places should remain away or if
they go there and misbehave, they should
in every instance be punished. The laws
of our state prescribe severe penalties under
which persons should be punished who dis
turb or interfere with public gatherings and
any one who so far becomes a law breaker
And an outlaw as to disobey these laws if let
go unpunished is likely to become hardened
and thus go on until they commit eraver

feet high and has two nicely developed ears

have prevailed on the committee there to
award him the first premium for the best
developed corn stalk.

Las' Sunday a number of boys had been
swimming in Marys river south of town and
upon returning one of them wii was
eating an apple threv it towards the China
house occupied by Chinamen who assist the
section boss in looking after the West Side
railroad. The apple struck a tin can and
made cousiderai Je racket. One of the Chi
namen rushed out with a pistol iu hand,
when he observed the boys he fired at them
and then rushed upon th m and stuck the
pistol in one boy's lace. Boys should be ar
rested and punished when they trouble
Chinamen unlawfully just the same as if
they were molesting any other class of peo
ple, and Chinamen have a perfect rifht to
inform on them in 1 to have them punished.
But a Chinamen who flourishes his revolver
around shooting into a crowd of boys and
tlirustini the funny end of his pistol into
people's faces is a dangerous kind of a pil
grim to run at l iri,e, and should be arrested
and promptly dispatched to Salem to view
the situation fr.im liebiud the bars. S one
of our officers who look after criminal prose
cutions had best hav th it pi tad celestial
taken care of where he will not shoot and
cripple any boys.

A party writing from Philomath says
"there has been quite a little s: ir thereon
account of the remarks in the last issue of
the GAZETTE, in regard to the deputy mar
shal ot Philomath. Some here lit dersto' d
that the paper took sides with the hoodlnm
element." This paper his no apologies for
what has been said on that subject. If peo
ple stir because the paper advocates the
punishment of those who violate law and
order, they will have to do so, because this
paper under its present management, will
take no other grounds than that hoodlums
who break the law, and lawbreakers gener
illy, or those who assult other people,
drawing pistols on them or throwing slung
shots and p ilicemen's billies at people'
heads should be punished as the law pre
scribes. This paper advocates the punish
ment of hoodlums who break the law and
also the punishment of deputy marshals
who break the law. The president of the
United States, because of his ex ilte 1 posi
tion or for any other reason has no right to
draw his pistol on or throw other weapons
at people, and if he should do so he should
be punished. Jseither does a deputy mar
shal by reason of his exalted position have
any better rights to violate the person! of
other people by using deadly weapons upon
them at all times than any body else.
The Lane County Fair.
The Lane County Agricultural Society
list Saturday closed its second annual exhi
bition, and to say that it was a grand sue
I cess is putting it in the mildest of terms.
The pavilion, in Rhinehait's spacious pai"
lors and theater rooms, situated in the heart
of the city ot Eugene, was filled to over
flowing with exhibits of all kinds and com
plete in ail departments, from that of the
farm and field to that of the finest work of
art aud fancy work. The grain exhibits by
Geo. Bebbaw, as well as that of grasses by
Hon. M. Wiikins, is deserving of special
mention and would be a credit to any state
in the Union, an I is particularly so to Lane
county. The display of fruits aud vegeta
bles was excellent. It is said by partie
who visited both this and the state fair that
the only exhibits which did not surpass
that of the state fair was that of the live
stock exhibition. The pavilion in the even
ing was particularly attractive, having in
attendance an orchestra furnishing excellent
music, where the youth and beauty, ageii
and middle-aged congregate en mass. A
cursory glance by a Gazette reporter at the
assembled crowd in the. pavilion one evening
was convincing proof that the Iowa editors
were only just iu their praise of the Eugene
It is estimated that at least 6000 people
attended the fair. The gate receipts
amounted to something over $1500, and it is
thought by the managers that they wili
be able to pay o f at least 90 per cent, of
the cash premiums awarded. No entrance
fee is charged for exhibits. A wise- provis
ion in the constitution of the Sooiety does
not allow the managers to pay out ou
premiums more than the total gate receipts,
thus preventing the society from becoming
involved in debt, and which seems to be
perfectly satisfactory to premium holders.
The race course and bicycling were features
of attraction . All in all the Lue county
fair was a grand success and reflects much
credit on the managers as well as the citi
zens of the entire county. To the managers
we are indebted for courtesies exteuded.
With the same enterprise on the part of our
own citiz -us, Bjntou county could hold as
successful a fair as this has been.
