There was'a brave, big-hearled- sot
'of "fellows araohp: tho mountains of
Josephine county in early times. They
were a little rough perhaps bufc soft as
women when a comrade was in distrcsSj
and asinirepiiLas .soldiers of the old"
guard when in -dangerous situations.
It needod.-rough-JioliL.men 'in thos.e
days, for the times were rough, and
jiany a story is related of the manner
in which they stood shoulder to shoul
der for mutual protection. Illinois
river, below Kerbyville, was the wild
est and most inaccessible part of the
county, but gold in paying quantities,
had been found on it, and in 1852,
notv.ithstaiTding the mountains through
which it ran were a favorite resort for
Indians, many of the boys continued
to work on it. One of the strongest
parties was located on the "Peersoll"
bar, and one of the number being
Aleck "W , a great strapping wes
tern maD, lithe as a wild cat, steady
and unerring in his ainr, always carry-
lii" a "pass tor a red sfcm m his rule,
and gaining the credit of making
many a "good" Indian. Aleck was a
terror to them; their trails were un
safe, and frequently aboriginal visitors
to the Peersoll camp lost their reckon
ing aniL never returned. After the
close of hostilities between the whites
and Indians the latter often visited the
camp, somctimqs hunting deer for the
boys, and were generally treated fairly
:is they deserved to Le. On one occa
sion a ''buck'' named Tom, belonging
to the Eogue river tribe, a sulky, ill
favored retch, demanded Aleck's gun
for a hunt, which was refused, the
owner faying that ho wanted to hunt
on the next day himself. The Indian
was oflended and inclined to be saucy,
and the result was driven out of camp
ri r.n gncrry n'fyyl. fitmring at "AIi'cl:'
was noticed) but saying that the" sigjits
'of hia gun had been movedieT quietly
lit his pipe and keptlnspwft counsel.
A-year passed by and still ITom" did
not make his appearance Another
jear and yet the ugly face was not
seen at the camp; At last fane of the'
boya asked "Aleck," "whore do you
suppose Tom keeps .himsehj-' "How
should I know,'' was theYonly. "Am
I my brother's keeper? Why do you
askP "O'iid his. ratijfe.quietly,
"I found some bones up on the moun
tain yesterday .and kind 'o guessed
they were Tom's." "Well," said
Aleck, in surprise, "What, do you
think he suicidedl" "Yes I guess so,
made a hole dead centre between the
eye?, then busted his yager all to flin
ders and threw it down tho gulch"
hughingly remarked his interrogator.
Right thero Aleck confessed, detailing
every circumstance, explaining- his si
lence as prompted by the fear of trou
ble from White Indians only, and de
manded a fair trial. Being the only
witness-, and known to be a ,man of
the strictest veracity, the trial at the
camp was short and the , verdict
"served the darned sneak right"
Aleck still lives in Josephine county
and often laughs when ho thinks of
the little game where the Red tried to
out-w it the White.

slight rustle in the brush and an ugly
brown face, made hideous with hatred,

friend of the-precedyig day. Stopping
where the trail was broken as if con

glanced wildly about, with his eye balls

Hon. R, K. Kinne, special agent of
the land office of tho interior depart
ment at Washington, lira been detail
ed to examine all donation application
and proofs now on file dn the several
land offices in Oregonund'Washington
Territory, and report their status and
condition. He has been, instructed to
locate all donation claims on the maps
and tract books in the local offices, and
make copies of all papers appertaining
to each claim now on file in the differ
ent local land offices in this state and
Washington Territory, and have the
originals forwarded to the commission
er of the general land office. As there
havo been many grants and appropria
tions of public lands to various com
panies, makes it necessary that all
claimants under tho donation act pass
ed September 27th, 1850, and the
amendments thereto, should examine
their proofs and make application for
their certificates of patent without
further delay, so that their patents
may be issued tor tne iana ciaimea.
Although nearly thirty years have
passed, proof in many cases is incom
plete and nearly all require marriage
proof and some additional proof of res
idence and cultivation. This is a mat
ter of importance, and application for
certificates should be made without
Subscribe for tie SiiirrnrEL.
Speaking of, the loan3 to McClane
and Myers, the "Standard" says it
"has the best of authority that Grover
did not receive a cent of the money,
nor wasit borrowed for his benefit."
This makes a direct issue of fact, which
is very easily settled. Grover held a
noteofS3,000 against McClane. To
this same McClane lie. made a large
loan out of the school fund, on very in
EuJKciellfcnoOTrJly,, -ontLfrlt-h jt-jiprtiop
of the money this 3,000 note was
paid. McClane's own Testimony be
fore the Committee- shows that tho
money never passed into his hands.
Grover simply transferred it from the
school fund to hia own pocket and
gaTe up tho note to McClane. The
Myers loan was made under the follow
ing circumstances: Grover sold his
Salem factory stock, understood to be
a. controlling interest in the corpora
tion. The persons who made the pur
chase had not the money to pay him.
Through a circuitous transaction a wa
ter power at i Ulein belonging to the
property was sold to A. Meyers, to
whom Grover made a loan oat of the
school fund, taking property of little
value as security. Myer's, howavjr,
did not get a dollar of the money thus
nominally borrowed. The whole sum
of 10,000 wa transferred directly
from the school fund to Graver's corn
piny by Grover himself, and the Stafe
was put off with security which has
proven almost worthless. When the
property wa3 sold to Myers, and coin
cident in litno with thii school fund
loin, the factory company that is,
Grover acknowledged receipt of $10,
000 for the property, and the smis is
a matter of public record. If the-ie
re not feicts we iuvita any one on be
half of Mr. Grover, or Mr. Grovsr
himself, to show the contrary; and as
the "Oregonian" wishs; to do no injus
tice, it will gladly publish such state
ment, and on fair proof will withdraw
its own. Here, then, is a plain issue
of fact Th "Standird" aba i'l good
enough to say that it "think? a public
official who hai monay in trust should
not loan it to himsflf." This raises
the question of the loan nominally
mado to tho West Portland Horns As
sociation. In this caso also Grover re
sorted to a roundabout method to get
money out otthe school fund. He or
ganized a straw corporation under the
above name, niortgivpd some liud
west of Portland, which is covered
with brush and timber, and is describ
ed as being "so steep that it stands
edgewho;" and on this imperfect secur
ity, on which no private capitalist
would loan 5,000, ho took 10,000
out of the school funds, and used the
money, as he himself has admitted, to
"pay his debt."." Now if tho "Stand
ard" really thinks that "a public offi
cial who has money in trust should not
loan it to himself," it will speak 'out in
censure of this transaction without
further delay. And since it professes
also to have "the best of authority,
that Grover did not receive the money"
on tho McClane and Myers loans", it is
incumbent on it to givo that authority
and clear up this matter. Wo have
now, as before stated, a plain issue of
fact, stripped of all superfluous and ir
revalent matter, and there is no longer
excuse for evasion "or silence on the
part of those who profess to bo prepar
ed to maintain the. propriety of Mr.
Grover's action. Oregonian.
A few days ago we published a com
munication on this topic, setting forth
the virtues of a discovery made by
Dr. D'Unger, formerly of Minneapolis,
now of Chicago, said to be an infalli
ble euro for drunkenness, a disease
which is worse in its results than all
other diseases combined. The Chicago
Inter Ocean has recently had many ar
ticles on this discovery, in which tho
effects cKimed for If arc backed by an
array of testimony wuIeVSerUuuW- is.
of a convincing kind. The remedy i3
a preparation of chincono rubra, or red
Peruvian bark. Taken as he prescribes
he asierts that it will cure the diseased
ncrve-celb of the brain of alcoholic in
flammation, so that the desire of strong
drink is permanently removed. It is
even claimed for the remedy that it
will create such an indifference to
drink oil xhe part of tho oldest toper
that he can take whisky in his mouth
and have no desire whatever to swal
low it. Dr. D'Unger is a physician of
tho old school, and he appeals to his
brethren of the profession to put his
claims to the severest test before be
lieving them. He ha3 invited them
to send him some of the most inveter
ate cases for trial, and it is "said not a
failure has occurred. Some of those
whom he has treated have stood the
test for nearly a year, and show no
signs of a relapie. The discover holds
that drunkenness or dipsomania, as it
is called in the language of writers who
treat of it, is a disease of the sensorial
nerve cells of the brain. This may
not bo a correct judgment, but it mat
ters little, it it be really true that an
effective remedy has been found
If a discovery has been made of some
cheap accessible remedy by which
drankards may be actually cured, it. is
one of tho most valuable discoveries
in the whole historyof mankind. There
are few, indeed, who are hlavos to this
apnetito, who would reufS to avail
themselves of such a remedy. Upon
men of all classes this fatal disease
fastens itself. With our high-pressure
sort of life in these days, when steam
is beginning to be thought slow, and
with our miserable habit of treating.
'everybody is in danger of becoming a
drunkard; and therefore the journal
before quoted is right in siying that
"the remedy, if ono ha.3 been found,
ought not to remain a professional se
cret a single week. The general gov
ernment ought to make a suitablo com
pensation to the dibcovcrer to mako it
known at onco to every inhabitant of
tho earth. It makes appropriations to
investigate the causes of the yellow fe

you prefer, that transcends all forms of

Petition. A petition, numerously
signed by citizens of Plovna, Linkvillo
and Lost River precincts, has been sent
to the Governor, asking that he appoint a
committee to visit and examine large
tracts of land lying in the vicinity of
Tulc and Little Klamath lakes, and
who shall have power to tako testimo
ny in icference to tho manner in
which these lands have been selected
by the State as swamp and over-flowed,
under the act of March 12th, 1860;
and who shall havo power to investi
gate the character of said lands which
are alleged to be swamp. The object of
this petition is to bring about an ad
justment of tho conflicting claims of
the State, and homestead and pre-emption
claimants threto. The long and
expensive contests between the State
and actual settlers on theso lands, havo
been a serious drawback to the set tle
ment and improvement of tho county.
A just settlement of these claims will
be a great relief and give a new impe
