Our detail led friend graduated at the I'nl
varsity of I lrrg..n in the tint class that was
graduated fr. that institution. He read law
with Mr. (i. B. Dorri-, of Eugene City, and
was admitted to irsetite in the year 1H7U. He

his supervision as my pie i -t -
Sis.ii after mv adinluion to the bar, we
formed a law partnership which lasted until
Impending death forred ita dissolution. In all
my intimate relstmns with him iu htislneu,
he niaintained that same genisl, kind and gen
trnw dtstmaltkai which characterireil his whole
He had achieved a success in his profrwlon
that many of i.mtmunred ability never ac
quire, even at a much riper age. Hs filled
with success ti e otli.s) of county Judge of his
native cuiitv for the term of four rears. He
ws. a leading lawyer at the bar In his osrn
county, snd DM among the loader, of the bar
in this state.
His skill nd tart in n.urt as a trial lawyer
was admitted bt all attorneys who came in
contact with him in the trial of a reuse. No
one sppreeisted the keenness of his intellect
and the ingenuity f his interrogatorie. more
than the unwilling witness who chanoed to be
subjected to a cro-n examination at his hands.
He was Wholly devoted t" his clients' Interest
.'mi., them with undaunted courage when a
lilti. -tilt case was placed ill his trends. Dur
lug my rxM ileiire of two years and over with
him ss s lsw i. tner, I never knew him to
turn one away from hi. office on account of
his poverty or inability to p.. for legal assist
anre. To othr no tubers of the bar he was
kind nnd courteous. T" his fi lends at large
lie was venerous to a fault. He had s ouslit.
.n hi dispo-iti.iii of drawing men toward him.
I think it ran lai saMy Mtl.l that no one
l VSf deputed lile in this county leatlng behind
. kt eat ! nuinlier nf intimate friends than hedld.
He had a brilliant future before him, and If hr
tis.l In ed, the I" gift, in the hsnds of th.
Iieople of this slate would have been In his
reach. Man's humanity to man was his re
ligion, And his chaiity ended only when his
ibilitv to gift ended. He I oieil for immor
ality, but lielieved that all beynu.l thi. life Is
a hiildeti mystery, and that no on. ia certain
as to lla nature. But if there is a better placr
for us after death, hr Is to day in happy un
inn wild th..... who have gone before.
I oannnt believe that if tli. -re I. a future exis
tence that it Is marred by the separation of
friends ami families Nor ran I believe that
ruch a venerous ronl ss inhabited this poor
tenement now Is-foro us, can lie refused any of
the favors that niav buls'stowed upon a human
soul hereafter. If the author .1 all creation
that we see lief'.re u. which we know I. resu
nite.l by the inost ierfect laws liss prepared a
place for the human family hereafter, it, ton,
oust lie iroverneil by perfect laws based upon
perfect justice. True love is everlsating, and
I cannot believe that the author of our heinv
can hate other then true love for us all. It
ha. been a noted fact In the lives of irreat and
noble men that they meet death bravely. A
noble still dies u noble death. While our dear
friend was surrounded by those most dear tn
him. and when they thought he was dying, be
suddenly ralli..l, and as if by inspiration, lit
tared sentiments showing that he was hspiir in
death, some of which are as follows: "This is
glorious; I am so happy and contented; under
what more plea-ant alrcninstsncs could I die
with all my beloved ones around my bedside."
"What grsn.lsr meeting could fiere be? A pie
tun. that could net he painted on canvas We
have been a harmonious family In all relation,
itb nag another." And then after talking
individually Pi his pa. -. nt-, ami to his brothers
and sisters present, snd expressing the deepest
retrret that the alweitt one. Were not present,
and after talking to each of his little Ixiys, he
placed his hands on the head of his devoted
wife snd said; "And my dear darling wife.you
tre tried and true, faithful to the last, I know
v. hi would have ulven yur life as a sacrifice
fnr your loved ones. " And now, oh, kind and
departed friend, if thoiicuhlst but know to day
how many hearts have hen made sail by thy
dep rture, how many tear, tif regret have been
shed si thy loss, how msny hearts have been
mails happy hv thy kind and generous deed..
thou wnuldat surely In led tn exclaim, the
world Is better that I have llvo.l. Ws leave

Eoiroa GoaaD Enclosed by mail please
find package of coal taken from abaft sitiisted
of a mile tiorihraal of Comstock station,
aud about 1.UU0 feet from tbe line of ihe 8.
V It R The specimen is from the bottom
of the shaft which is not yet through tbe
ve n, which is now faced up &8 lie le s p. i
ietidicuiar Of Ihia 38 inches is ...lid. and
will require blasting. The upier Jo incbea
is more strictly slratifia. the stratas constant
ly thickeniug as ibe tunnel sdvances. We
are op.ning up another mine 1 1 , miles from
tbe track thai ia a much larger vein, equally
as flue ooal, wbicb now preaeiils a faot of
1UU lucbes. Tbe route selected for a tram
way lo tbe railroad from Ibis mine will be
down tbe valley of Ward creek, flowing into
l'aaa ereek ,' , mile south of Ibis station. I
bare spent some tbrco months here in tbo
mini k and bavu given them a thorough ex
amioatlon. I And very eati .factory indica
tions of an extrusive coal field, granite, sand
stone, limestone, slate and potter' clay.
I find a general "dip" of tbe bedrock (either
lime or sauilstone ) to be north and east.
Thi. faot has heretofore very much retarded
the development of the mines, as parlies en-g-igcd
in piti.prctiug always took an "up
wanl diaiiiage." The coal would soon rnu
out, or, if they fi Mowed the "pitch," water
sooa accumulated and Ibe prospect was
abandoned. I started a Innuel uorlbeast
and when water followed pat iu a wing dam.
Finding tbo coal not men asmg as the tunnel
advauced, I d -ore a shaft through the bot
tom of the lunn. I. This soon brought tbe
true vriu into view, and now no one who has
visited the inn." double lbs exialenoe of a
reliable flrst-class ooal mine. Our tunnel
waa run in l& or 21) feet some years since and
waa abandoned. I dropped back down tho
mountain ISO feet, followiug the "dip" for
ward. The true vein waa found lo be IS
feet below the bottom of lbs old tunnel,
showing 1UU inches of good reliable hard
ooal There are also other resouroaa of
wealth to be fouud here, not the least, a re
markably healthy climate, pure water, shel
tered from tbe wind, the subtle, aromatic
medicated influence of tbe air broatbrd from
amoug ibrse everlasting fir clad mountains
proves a bulling balsam lo all ditflriillies of

range of possible relief. Lime.toue of a

certainly succeed here. All these lauds are
of remarkable ricbuess of soil, and every,
thing for sale can reach Ibe market by way

The lioston Herald has elicited tho opin
ion of a number of men prominent in public
life or in business, as lo Ihe dangers from
aud tbe proper restrictions upou tbo use of
money in influencing eleolions.
Three rx Governors of Massachusetts bead
ha list. Ex-Oovrrnor Qssion believe tbal
"Ibe improper and corrupt use of money has
degraded our elections, that it lends to Pin
inerscy and is one of the source of danger
to our institutions " Ex Governor Long con
siders tbat "it i not desirable that corpora
lions should take any active interest in tbe
success of speoial candidates," but sees "no
impropriety iu tbrir disarm inslii-g iu every
roper way, by Id. ratine or through the
press or by speaker ou Ibe platform, infor
mation which they believe will promote a
political policy for tbe general welfare."
Ex-Oovrrnor Butler boldly declares that
corporations have as much right lo protect
heir Interests by 'sending meu to represent
hem in Conges.' as i possessed by any
"her body of men." None of tbe men in
terviewed defended thu pnrohaso of votes,
I bough several of the politicians justify cam
paign funda that oould be desired or used
lor no other purpose.
Mr. Long's supposition Ibst a corporation
will spend money lo "promote the grueral
welfare" is well met by tbe sfflrmslion of
Ex-Mayor Martin that "whatever a corpora
iron does lain its own interest" Wben
corporations or tu b men as individuals con
tribute money to elect Presidents or mem
bers of Congress they do il. as Oeu. Bating
saya and he has "been there" lo "repre
sent them aud protect th. ir interests." And
wben an election is rariled bt money or tha
Government is admiuistend In the iuleresl
of the money power the result is, as Ex Qot,
(last, n very properly obeervrs, "a Plu
oer. cy" au oligarchy of wealth iuateed of a
Republic of equal oitigens.
Tbe remedies suggested in the various in
terviews are mora general than specific It
is plain, however, that two measures will do
a great deal to check ibis in knowledge d evil:
1 A law limiting campaign eipeudituiea
by candidates and committees and requiring
publicity to all disbursements.
i. A ballot reform win. h shall provide
ballots al publio expense and secure privacy
and secrecy in voting.
