Decomposed granite is to take tho

Four carloads of this decomposed rock
from the pit ut Grants Pass were re
ceived here by last evening's freight,
and the section foreman has been noti
fied that it Is to bo used on the yards,
which means that tho old plank walks
must come up and that they will Is
replaced witli this yellow pulverized
roek, which when put in place and
thoroughly packed, makes u smooth,
solid surface which, with occasional
hutching, will last for many years.

Dully Ou.nl, July S.
The following Is from today's Ore
goulaii: "Every decent person was glad when
tho case of the United States against
Misti Mary llerger, of Eugene, charged
with sending obsi-ono letters through
the mails, was finally dlsos.d af, and
there was no longer need of the dis
gusting aft'uir being heard or thought
of. Tho court, It will bo remembered,
held that It would have been Iihikm-
slide for Miss llerger to write auuh let
ters, and was of tho opinion that they
were written by an enemy f Miss
Iterger, and an enemy of her friends.
This view of tho case is strengthened
by thu fuct that yesterday Un Ited
Slates Attorney D H Murphy received
a very obscene letter from Eugene,
evidently written by nu enemy of Mis
llerger. The mildest prt of the let
ter Intimates that Mr Murphy I de
void of intelligence, or he would not
have allowed Miss I tenter to escape
conviction. Then followa a lot of vile
matter lu tho same style aa the letter
Miss llerger was accused of writing.
This carrying the war Into Africa, so
to Ss-ak, nmy be considered a good
joke on Mr Murphy, but It Is likely to
prove no Joke for the writer of the let
ter. Mr Murnhy claims that lie
knows the handwriting, and that lie
ahull at once take steps to secure the
punishment of the Impudent scoun
drel who wrote it, who, Mr Murphy la
certain, Is a lawyer who has had some
legal relations with Draild Mrs Mclveli
ney, thu latter of whom was Ilrst ar
rested on accouut of Hi obscene let
ters, but who wus acquitted; then Miss
llerger was charged with the ollense."
Woare quite positive thut no law
yer In Eugwiju wrote tlio letter above
referred to. The attorneys In this
city, one and all, are lilgh-inlnded gen
tlemen, and would not be guilty of
such an uet. Mr Murphy must look
elsewhere for the writer.

Hardly have thu iiewsnapcrs ceased
to give reports of one highly sensation
al case ul Full Creek Alien another
takes place. This time It Is a slnsiling
case, ami Anna Yuiighau, aged twelve
years, Ilea at Hie iKiiul of death, with
a bullet through Iter head.
Anna Yaiighan Is u daughter of
William Yaiighan, and lives with her
parents and brothers and sisters at
their home lu Fall Creek settlement,
thla county, about fifteen miles south
east of this city. Shu is aged twelve
yiarsaud has a brother named ItoUrt,
about fourteen years old. According to
reorts, this boy has a very bad nis
poslllon, and Is said to lie unmanage
able by 111 elder sisters III thu ubsenco
of his parents.
Mr Ynughan's home Is situated
alsiut a Inilu west of Fall dis k st
nfllee, on the south sl.lo of Llltle Fall
Creek, and near by Is Ihe home of his
son In-law, Doug. Kerns, who Is now
away lu Eastern Oregon. During Mr.
Kerns' absence, thu Yaughiui child
ren have been looking after his chores,
folng down to the house and return
ng each morning mid evening.
This morning, us usual, Unbel t nnd
Anna Yaughaii went down to Mr.
Kerns' to care for the chores. 1 1 seems
that the boy took with him, or pro
cured somewhere along the way, an old
pistol, and It was with this deal n-dcal-ing
Instrument that thu terrible deed
was committed, while tho children
wero alone ut thu homo of their
brother-in-law. Just how It happened
Is not known, and sTliap never will
be, unless the gill recovers to tell tho
story, which Is very Improbable. Hut
the deed was commuted, nnd Is a very
serious all'air, whether done accidental
ly or 111 ft lit of Ill-controlled passion.
The Ixiy claims tho shooting was done
accidental, but many who ure ucnuain
