The W. II. N. Styles, who figures as
a volunteer witness in the Oregon-
Grover case, is an interesting character.
He rushes forward to tell how much he
knows of the alleged bribery by which
Senator Grover secured his election.
That he is a swift witness no one can
doubt after having read his testimony,
lie was, by his own account, ubiquitous
—here, there, and every where, and al
ways in each particular place at the
precise moment to eavesdrop and spy
upon Grover and his confidential
friends, just as they were, each arid all
passing remarks upon the institution,
and uttering in bated breath and whis
pers which honest men never "fitter.
Yet he was not in Grover’s confidence,
nor in that of Grover’s confidential
friends. How it happened then, that
he knew exactly when to l>e in ear-shot
of Grover and his friends, so as to be
able to overhear the faintest whisper
that passed the lips of any of them in
relation to the election, he does not en
gage to reveal. Yet he is singularly
open-mouthed on every other matter
calculated to make the charges against
Grover stick. It is also queer that al
though Styles swears he heard all this
whispering of bribery, and knew all
that he tells as early as last September,
it was not until March that he blurted
it out, and then he made it known to
the Radical U. S. District Attorney of i
Oregon, and to the Radical Collector ot
the port of Portland, because he was a
Democrat, and because Grover as Gover
nor attempted to deprive the Radicals
of one of the three E e/toial votes of
Oregon. But if Grover had Hone any
thingof the kind,it was in December—
months before March—that he did it.
And it is remarkable that, not until
March, alter Grover had been admitted
to his seat in the Senate, and after
Hayes had been installed in the seal
which belonged to Tilden, that virtuous
and fraud-hating Styles opened at once
his mouth and his hand, blabbed his
budget of information against Grover,
took a little $12 check from Collector
Kelly for his story, and had his hotel
bill at Salem paid while he stayed there,
by his new found Radical friends.
Mr. Styles says bis residence is at
Antelope Station, Californi i. It is pos
sible that he seeks the appointment of
postmaster, or is a candidate for some
other position at the disposal of the Ad
ministration. Mayhap he is only prov
ing in Oregon his qualifications, to con
vince Sargent, Gorham, Carr, and the
“ring,” that he is just the kind of a
round, through-thick-and-thin swearer
they want, in order that he shall not
lack congenial employment in their
service—such as spying, eaves-drop-
ping, and swearing to anything that is
required. He is, we fear, wasting his
precious time and lovely qualities in
the Webfoot State. They are a cheap
set of rogues up there. They sell theii
votes for Senator for a paltry $l,0(hL
when here the ordinary tariff is, for a*
Radical legislator of even the lowest
degree, a big pile or a fat office. There
fore, Mr. Styles should bound back Io
Antelope, and there leap into the good
graces ol the “ring,” and exercise for
them his particular qualities as sneak,
spy, taves-dropper aud promiscuous
witness. He might shadow the De
Young Brothers and swear to almost
anything against them that Sargent, or
Page, or Carr, or Gorham, would sug
gest in the libel suits now under way.
Next, he could be utilized against Pin-
ncy. Who shall say he was not con
cealed under Pinney’s bed in the hotel
at Oakland when that retired partner
of the “ring” firm got back, and is not
ready to swear to every whispered
soliloquy of the returned fugitive, or,
to what he was expected to say in his
sleep? It is mighty handy to have
a fellow like Styles in the house—of
one who has an enemy to victimize; but
not in the house of an honest man ex
cept as an intruder or spy. If it is on
testimony such as his the charge of
bribery against Senator Grover is to be
sustained, then has the people’s money
to pay for the Commission to investi
gate the case been worse than wasted.
It is like offering a reward for low-
priced perjury. From the first we
predicted that the Grover investiga
tion would amount to nothing, and
every day now sustains the prediction.
It will not establish the accusation
against Grover. It will merely dis
cover the desperation and shallowness
of his accusers.— S. F. Examiner.

In 1855 Gov. Stevens made treaties
with the Nez Perees and various other
Indian tribes. He refused to recog
nize the chief of the Nez Perees, and
managed to put Lawyer in his place,
the latter being shrewd and pliable.
His tribe have greater numbers than
any of the rurnerous tribes of that re
gion, numbering about 2,800 all told,
and about half of them are on the Lap
wai and Kamiah reservations—the bal
ance are non-treaty Indians. Among
the chiefs who reluctantly signed the
treaty was old Joseph, father of Capt.
Joseph. He was not a Nez Perce, but
a Cayuse, and claimed Wallowa valley.
The old man quieted down, however,
and is now living on the Nez Perees
Reservation. Joseph, however, takes
up the claim of his father with some
followers, and is joined by some of t he
Nez Perees who are di-sati-fied with
the elevation of Lawyer. Prior to that,
however, a dangerous sect of Indian
religionists called “Dreamers” wa«
originated by’Smohalla. He had been
taught the Bible by the missionaries,
and he so far profited by their teach
ings as to lay fast hold of the text in i
Judges vi ami vji, as to Gideon and
his band of 300 overthrowing the
Midianites. He applied the doctrine
to the whites as Midianites and, like
the founder of Mahometan faith, his
followers had frantic faith in his teach
ings. In 1858 Gen. Wright flogged
these Dreamers and captured Smohalla
and kept him prisoner. zXfter peace,
though, Smohalla was turned loose on
condition that he would cease his doc
trine. He complied till since the civil
war closed, when he recommenced.
His success has grown into magnitude,
and it is not confined to his own tribe.
He has gone to the great meeting
places and instilled his doctrine into
the hearts of the dissatisfied rovers,
converting them to the belief that they’

deal with him except for fire-arms ami
ammunition; must not go on reserva
tions, nor into churches or school
houses, refuse to be instructed or to
listen to books, and to steal from the
whites whenever they can. Joseph
has accepted this doctrine. He is

to Joseph’s banner.
S leight of H eel .—Not far from
the Capitol building, on Hillsboro St.,
a couple of young ladies elegantly cos-
Iftmed in visiting paraphernalia emerg
ed from a residence and entered the
street just ahead of us. Each had a
trail as long as a peafowl’s tail trailing
in and they must needs be taken up.
The older of the two followed the cus
tom of the day by reaching down and
taking hers up by her hand, but the
younger didn’t do it that way. Plant
ing her left foot on the ground, she
gave a sudden kick with her right heel,
and the trail was instantaneously ele
vated to its position in the right hand
extended to receive it. It was done
so quickly that the motion was hardly
perceptible—in fact it was the “cutest”
trick we ever remember to have seen.
A R ival to T om T humb —A rival
General to Tom Thumb is now at Cal
cutta. He is a Hindoostan Brahmin
from Cuttack, is only three feet in
height, and declares himself to be 36
years old, while not looking more than
eight years of age. The little fellow is
well proportioned and handsome, and
appears quite satisfied with himself.
He is employed at Cuttac c, says the
Times of India, “mounted orderly” to
a Sahib. The smallest pony in the
world is now in the possession of the
young Maharajah of Puttiala. Ac
cording to the description in a Lahore

eight inches high, is the perfect miuia

manner: Henry Elires’ buildingon John

the bridge and Jerome’s, Wall’s, Sil-
verwood’s and Detuster’s buildings on
the north side of Clearwater, and one
building at the Karnin sub-agency has
al-o been burned. This gives twenty-

retirement. It adds a new attraction

now take a rest. Nearly a generation
has passed whose only street view of
the feminine ankle has been through
leather. At last the stocking of our
grandmother is revealed. The clean,
white hose is a power in the land. Its
influence is sudden, mysterious, subtle
and magnetic. It concentrates all eyes
into a focus on itself. It amuses and
interests the lounger. It aff rds to the
hurried man of business a momentary
respite. It redoubles the liabilities of
the careless to be run over. It is not
without a charm for the aged breast.
No portion of a lady’s apparel is more
effective. The showy article, if at all
systeo a' ic, half compensates for a plain
face. It is a makeweight in the dow
er of feminine beauty of which women
for long years have been robtied. For
the boot is expensive. A little worn,
and it becomes misshapen and ugly.
We welcome the slipper. Long may

P hiladelphia , July 8.—The Bul
letin says the dust which has been al
lowed to accumulate upon the roof of
the Philadelphia mint during the past
25 years was collected recently by or
der of Gov. Pollock for the purpose of
ascertaining what propoit n of the
metal it contained. The root is of as
phalt, and, as it softens, the dust slicks
io it tenaciou-ly. Some amount of dif
ficulty was consequently experienced
in removing it. Finally a quantity
amounting to 1,732 pounds in weight
w is removed. This has been submitt
ed to the usual assaying process. The
result shows that 42 ounces of standard
gold, and 76 our ces of standard silver,
with a total valuation of about $850,
