R. L> Hume, king of the lower
Rotrue river. w< uld be king of the en
tire stream and ttie whole common
wealth adjoining it were he allowed
t tie opportunity. His latest venture
is that of an attempt to drive a raft
of logs from the upper river to Gold
Beach. The undertaking was a fail
ure, as anyone knowing anything at
all about the obstructions in Rogue
river would kuow it would be. I d
truth it Is an evident fact that Mr.
Hume cared but little whether the
log» reached their destination or n< t.
He has long prevched an open river;

the entire lower stream and keeping

counties, he is now attempting to put
a check to enterprises that are being
built in Josephine and Jackson c >un
ties, says the Oregon Observer. There
is nodcnyiug the fact I hat Mr. Hume
is running the logs down the liver
with no ether intention than that of
ruining the enterprises inaugurated at
Tolo and Dry Diggings, and promot
ing his own sei fish interests. Wny
should he go so far up after his logs?
On ills own domain he owns thous
ands o.” acres i f nine limber fully as
good as cm be Lund on the upper

monopolize things in his own county;

That's the condition of many sufferers

Great difficulty is experienced in clear

pohutes the breath, deranges the stom

To cure catarrh, treatment must be
constitutional—alterative and tonic.

medicines ot different kinds, giving each

A Good Bill
Representative Tongue has intro
duced a bill extending tbe provisions
of the act relating to claims arising
against tbe government on account
of Iudian depredations. The present
law provides for tbe payment of dam
ages sustained by American citizens
for depredations by Indians who are
“in amity with tbe United States,”
or were at the time such depredations
were committed. There have been a
great many instances, however, where
Indians at tbe time of the beginning
of their hostilities, and before such
hostilities were sufficient to really
put the settiers oo their guard, did
considerable damage to tbe property
of private citizens, particularly io
Oregon, in tiie early days prior to tbe
Indian wars. Citizens have sought
to procure relief for these damages;
but have been met by the construc
tion that the Court of Claims and
Congress have given to the word»
“in amity.” Where a war has follow
ed, or was in progress, the courts
have refused to grant relief, and all
efforts to have a more liberal con
struction placed upon the law have
failed, all judicial tribunals holding
against the claimants. Mr. Tongue’»
bill enlarges tbe preseot law to in-
elude this class of claims.
