The oase with w hich peiisionij wnro
fr.iV.dulentlir olifnined tniih-r, the lonso
practices that prevailed in the llepuh
licnn administration of tlm l'onsiim
liiireau, is now having an illustration
in Washington in the investigation
lieing instituted ley (!:'liera! I'lack, the
pension superintendent in tlm case of
one Thomas I lawley, who served in
l!ompany 1, First, Vermont caxairy.
I'revious to Ids recent application for a
pension, nothing has lieen heard of
I lawley's whereahouts since he disap
peared from tho City Point hospital,
in Virginia in ISli-l. In the year 1871
his wife obtained a pension on account
of his alleged death in a hospital. In
1880, n citizen nf Hut land tiled an ap
plication for and nlitained a pension
for I lawley 'h minor child, on the
ground that the father had died in
service and the mother had left Ver
mont, deserting her oll'sprinc. Now
the doubly accounted dead I lawley
turns up like a had coin, and he, loo,
wants a pension on account of his Mil
iant services performed in the hospital.
Hut (leneral I 'lack has a knack of cn
ipiiring into such claims that is quito
discouraging to the hard -wnrkhiy claim
ngents- Now, if each of these claims
had heen severally presented in con
gress, they would have passed Uliclial1
longed and President Cleveland would
have been strongly condemned hy tho

Albany Herald, March :?..
Last Friday tlm Herald published a
dispatch from llarrishurg stating that
Schuyler Ford, a young man l!l
years of age, n stepson of Peter 1 1 .
Wigle of llarrishurg had disappeared
from that vicinity about a month ago,
and nothing lias heen heard of him
since, He had purchased a lot in Co
hurg upon which he had built a
house to run a saloon, and for which
business ho had bargained of J. II.
P.utler of that placo for a slock of
goods. hen lu.st.seen he Mail upon
his person 700 in money and Albany
bank checks, his pistol and overcoat
remaining at tho hotel uncalled for. ,
Sunday evening the following dis
patch was received, confirming tho
cars of tho friends who thought ho
had been murdered for his money: :
llAitutsuiito, March 27 Schuyler
C. Ford, the young man who
wus missed from this vicinity about
five weeks ago, was found in tho
Willamette river to-day, two and otic-
half miles below llnrrishurg nt In
gram's ferry, lodged against a log. Tho
body was in a fair state of preserva
tion and could ho identified by close
observation. Ono tade of tho head
was broken, also the lower jaw-hono
was broken, being undoubtedly tho re
sult of direct force or violence. Ihero
was found on tlm body a wurranty
deed' to a lot ho haJ purchased in Co-
mig, Lint! county, also numerous Int
ers from his relatives and frionda His
watch was on his person, the chain lin
ing broken off and gone. 'Ah yet thero
is no clue to tho mysterious affair, hut
a Hi-riuus fact is established almost be
yond a doubt that we havo in our
midst honds in the shape of men that
1 murder it human being tor tlio
sake of a small gain. It is hoped that
the cormiers jury when asssembled
I elicit something that may lend to
the discovery of tho perpetrators of
this foul murder,
The body of tho murdered man wn
brought to this city yesterday on tho
way to Corvallis for interment. J hero
is much feeling over the affair nt llar
rishurg, and citizens of that place have
signilied their willingness to oiler a lib-
ral reward for the apprehension ot
of the assassins. It was expected that
the coroner's jury would concludo
their examination of the case yester
day hut it is learned that they will
withhold their decision for u tew uaya
in hope of obtaining more direct evi
dence. Duvo WiggiuB, of North Powder, ft black-
smith by trade, and a former resident of

tho time in tho household of Wiggins, and
tho benst, after neeompliHlihig bis devilish
work, through threats of murdering her
frightened tlio poor y,irl into silence, nntil
now. Tho discovery that nlio was soon to
becoino a mother brought out tho trim facts
ami caused tho nrrcHt of Wiggins. Ho had a
preliminary hearing before- Justice Holland,

Tho Salem Talk says thero is a case of
smallpox seven miles nortu of Maicni, n
llazlodcll: "Homo days ago a woman, who
said she had eomo from California on foot,
stopped at a housu in Iluzcldull ami rcipicst-
tho inmates to nllow her to rest for a slion
time, mid also asked for a drink of water.
Sho was grunted tho privilcgo of resting nnil
given tho water, thoso in tho houso thinking
sho was insane. It was noticed at tho time
that something was tho matter with her face.
Several days ufter mm of tho members of the
family was taken sick, and symptoms of

says if anyone has any doubts as to its being

Sho may have perished iu tho woods or some
out of the way place. It is thought she got

List July Willis Skill", a prominent merch
ant of Union county, mysteriously disap
peared, and thn o men, Rubier, Tilietts, and
Godfrey were tried for his. murder. Tho
prosecution iu tncli ease failed to establish
the fact that SkilT had Wn murdered and
that cither of tho three men mentioned weio
guilty of his murd r. It now transpires that
SkifT wan not murdered, but simply jumped
the country. It is claimed by the linker City
Democrat that SkilT has lieou run down in
Canada, near Detroit, by a shrewd detective.
