Dince tht fire of. November 8th. the citi'
tens of Eugene City Lave been treated to
three Ore alarms. Last 8sturdy morning
about niot o'clock the roof of the buildina
vwuuicu uj vuaa. joiinsoti as a restaurant
was discovered to be on lire. Au alarm was
sounded, but a few buckets of wster speedily
emnguisnea the Br. after it had burnt off
Severn! yanla of shingles. The fire originated
irom a Qciecuvs flue. Sundsy night, abu
even o ciocit, a tire was discovered in the
it Charles hotel betweeu the ceiling aud
floor of the second Ktory. Creat exeitemeut
i . . . . . . .
ueu, ui lonunateiy the fire bad not
gamed headway, aud it was soon exlinguised
inis Ore also originated from a defective
flue. Both have since been rebuilt Eithe
of these fires would have laid a oonsiderabL
part of our city i i ashes had it cained suffi
cient heailway to preclude the ue of buckeU.
it wouiu seem superfluous to again call
attention of the Honorable City Council to
Hie fact that this city has no protection what
ever Irom the fiery elemeut. A mineral
feeling of insecurity prevails amona those in
business on Willamette street, which
injuring the prosperity, and li iwering the
value of the property thereon. No one cares
about iuvestiug iu property or business on
this street, when the accumulations, probably
ol years, msy be swept away iu a few hours-
borne relief is demanded. All aiiree that
water works ou the Butte are desirable, and
would secure a certain protection. But uo
person or company seems w illing to com.
mence the enterprise. The cost would fall
but little below $13,000, and this, with' the
cost ( operating aud keeping it in repair
would preclude capitalists from investing
1 ne only feasible project is for the city to
buy a good hand engine capable of throwing
two streams. Our buildings are all low. and
the brick buildings are so scattered as to
form a break to the flames. Water can be
obtained readily from inexhaustible natural
cisterns which need not be over sixteen feet
deep. With a good hand engine so old fire
meu say, the flames could be confined to the
building in which it originates or to the
range of wooden buildings in which it
tands. The cost of engine, hose, hose
carts, and three more cisterns would not ex
ceed $3,000. The city has already on hand
a fire fund of nearly a thousand dollar, aud
the remainder could be raised without any
special effort. Cut down the salaries of
some of your city officials if economy
necessary, and expeud the money for
something that will protect what you have
already secured. The Honorable Council
confesses its inability to take any steps to
wards building a reservoir. It professes to
desire to render tome benefit and
protection to the property w ithin the city,
yet singularly enough allows a scheme that
is impracticable, because of want of funds, to
engage its atteution, while what could
be done is totally neglected. vVe have but
one word farther for that body; that is, that
a city election will be held next April, when
a chance will be given to infuse some life
into the almost defunct city government.

To tht Pullie;
It affords me the highest gratification to
say that a careful and thorough investigation
of certain reports Injurious to the reputation
ot the Hon. Robert Cochran and Mr. F. W
Osburn, alleging a purpose aud attempt
them to run off or induce the absence of
prosecuting witness, iu a case some tim
tried in the United States Court, in which
sant Osburn was defendant, found these
reports wholly uiisustaiued by the facta rnd
untrue, aud that uothing uot fully comport
iug with iutrgrity, honor, and the obligations
of law, was involved iu the conduct of the
gentlemen above named in regard to the
witness referred to. The object of the gen
tlemen iu leaving towu was not to, see the
said tituess, but to obtain the naluralizaiion
papers of the Iudian with whom he had for
some time previously made his home, which
they did on the advice of their attorney.
The statements made by me iu public were
based on information then regarded as re
liable, but now found to have rested on an
just inference and mistake. I trust that th.
giatilicaiion it affords me tj make this ex
planation will be shared by all the just aud
f.nr minded lovers of peace and truth.
My in'onnm ion. was first received fro.n Mr
J E Attebery, our City Marshal, who slates

, Editor Goard: Through the columns of
your psper I desire iu a brief way to lay
before the people of this vicinity a few of
the objects of the organization kuown as the
'Ancient Order of United Woikmen." Its
First To embrace and give equal protec

ami physical; to strive earnestly to inform
the moral, intellectual, and social condition
of its members; to endeavor by wholesome
precepts, fraternal admonitions, aud substan
tial aid, to inspire a due appreciation of the
stern realities aud responsibilities of life.
Second To create a fund f ir the benefit
its members during sickness, or other
disability, and in cue of death to pay a
tipulatea sum to such person or persons as
may be designated by each member, thus
euubling him to guarantee his family against
Third The adoption of such secret work
and means of rotoguition as will insure the
protection of its members wherever the order
While the order has adopted secret workt
and its members are to a certain ex'ent
ound together by fraternal bonds, yet it is
nothing more or less than ai insurance com
pany based on purely business principles.
Eugene Lodge No. 13, A. 0. U. W., is
gradually filling up with our best and most
substantial citizens, aud all those desiring
heap insurance will do well to consult its
