A lnlr from a Daltuiiorc coTCRpon
dont of tlio New York Tiinen, was pub
lihlit I oa Tuostlay in that paper in
which tlm writer dihtinctly asuortu that,
no matter hat nmy bo tlio guilt of the
participants in 'ho Star-route swindle,
none of them will lie puninhed. Judg
ing from experience, the pen-siiuiHt pro
phecies of tlio Times' correspondent are
more than likely to prove correct. Since
iho advent of tlio Republicans to power
a great many conspiracies have come to
light, having for their object tho plun
dering of tho people's puroo, but the of
fenders havo rarely Wen punished; at
least, tho instances have been very faw.
There wer tho New York Custom
houso frauds, the navy frauds, tho post
trader trauds, tho French-arms afJ'air,
tho Wellington real estato ring, tho
Washington improvement rinj, the Columbus-Alexander
safo lurgliry, the
whisky fiaudd and tho Credit Mobilier
scandal, and how many of the partici
pants in those schemes came to grief 1
Few, very few, and thode that did, witli
tho evrpticii o? Belknap, were mere
scai'goats, w ho vicariously atoned for
ihetiina of thrir more fortunate and pow
erfuj fellows. No wonder tho corres
pondent of tho Timed despairs of bring
ing these people to ji'Biic-e. They ore
too deeply intrenced I chind olliciuls
forms; thero are too many who have
shared tho plunder, and too many thus
interested in suppressing all proceed
ings and preventing anything like a
thorough investigation. It is a humili
ating confession and a disgraceful con
dition, but then of such is the rule of a Re
publican Administration, and to which,
in tho next barrel of verbal molasses
broached to form a Republican plat
form, tho writers will, as usual, "point

Last Sunday morning Oscar, eldest
son of Mr. Augustus Miller, of Stayton,
says the Salem Talk, started out for tho
Suntiam to go fishing. Not returning
in tho evening, his parents became
alarmed and instituted search for him,
which resulted in finding his hat float
ing on tho water, and tho skill' in which
ho had been fishing from lodged in some
drift wood, with tho bottom up. It is
supposed that tho boat drifted out into
tho current, and being unable to man
age it, turned over, drowning tho young
man. Parties have been busily cngng

tho vicinity in which ho is supposed to
havo drowned, but so far havo not

Tho Dalles Times tells of a boy named
Eddie, aired about eight years, a son of
Mr. F. M. Ewing, living on lliree
Milo creek in that county, who died on
Monday last from fright produced
through tho cruel fun of his school
mates. Some largo boys chased tho
little fellow a lonz distance, and then
caught and threatened him with knives
if ho dared tell the teacher, causing
such a shock to tho nervous system
that ho never rallied. Our informant
stains that fur two weeks before his
death ho su fit-red extremely, at times
being delirious and calling out lor tlio
boys to lot him alone. Tho matter
should be inquired into by the proper
Coos Bay and ItosKaiRfi Railroad.

Fight With Robbers.
Ii will bo remembered that McKin
ney 1 Smith's store at Turner's Station
was robbed Thursday May 3d, of $200
worth of goods by unknown parties.
Deputy SherilT Minto, of Marion coun
ty, was informed of the crime, organiz
ed a small posse, and went in search of
the burglars. By diligent inquiry and
active exertions, they tracked the rob
bers to a thick underbrush, about one
mile north .of Jefferson and east of tho
railroad track. Early last Saturday
morning, just after daybreak, the des
peradoes, three in number, came out
fruiu their ambush and started south
with the rvident intention of crossing
tho railroad bridge over the Santiam.
Ono fellow was armed with a Winches
ter rifle ond the other two with double
barrel shotguns. Minto ond his crowd
followed, ond when within 250 yards
tho former commanded the robbers to
halt They obeyed, and turning
around one of the gang fired his rifle
and sent a ball through the hat of one
of Minto'a men. As the latter were
armed only withrevolversfurthercha.se
was abandoned and the robWs proced
ed on their way south. They left in
the brush two bundles containing some
of the goods stolen from the store.
