Lost in the Mountains. Nearly
three weeks ago a miner named C. Y.
Miller, working on upper Elliot cieek,
started from Collins, at the mouth of
Squaw creek, for his camp. The day
was very stormy and a blinding snow
falling, but Miller, who was packing
about forty pounds of supplies, thought
he could reach his cabin without trou
ble. He did not, however, aud as since
that time he has not been heard of;
there is little doubt that lie became ex
hausted or lost the trail ami conse
paently perished in the storm.
The Gkist Mill. On Thursday
last the site on which the new steam
grist mill is to be elected was selected
by Mr. Foudray. It is to be built di
rectly under the point that comes down
just North of "pest-house" gulch. A
road will be graded back of the mill,
so that grain will be conveniently un
loaded and the lay ot the ground on
the lower bide will enable teamsters to
load flour without unnecef-sary hand

of the departments of the school that is
not as it should be, as wo regret to ob

tha rules of school, but for failing to
get the lesson, is kept up. It is a cus

are made by our friends iu the East
concerning the annual rainfall on this
coast By" reference to the weather re
port just issued we find that the rain
fall at three different localities in Ore
gon in 1879 was as follows: At Asto
ria 59 inche of rain fell; at Portland
55 inches, and at Jacksonville not
quite 25 inches. On an average 30
inches more rain fell in the Willamette
valley than in the Rogue river valley,
and the fact goes to show that South
em Oregon is thedryest division of the
State. Crossing the Northern bounda
ry line into Washington Territory a
remarkable increase in the rainfall is
observed. At Port Townsend on Pu
get Sound the rainfall in 1879 amount
ed to 130 inches, or more than five
times the mean rainfall at Jack
sonville, seven times that of San Fran
cisco, and twenty times that of Neva
da. Eleven feet and four inches of
rain we don't care about having as
much in ours.

There having been a serious misun

for the control of which the three Trus

Oakland, Dec. 19, 1879.
Messrs Reames, Beekman &. Foudray:
Gentlemen: A few clays ago I re
ceived a letter from three ladies of
Jacksonville, who were appointed a
committee to ask my opinion in this
trouble, with the organ. I .answered
them in sum and sulwtancs just about
what I am now- goinj to write to you.
Ida's and my intentions were from the
first, to procure an instrument that
could be used for the good of the whole
community, and it does not seem right
to me to change our minds now, be
cause of a mistake in having our tickets
printed, "for the benefit of the M. E.
Church." I know that the building
called the Methodist Church was built
in an early day by subscription, and I
supposed the intention of those who
raised money for its construction was
that it should b used by all denomina
tions, as Presbyterians, Episcopalians
and Methodists each held serrices there
while I was in tovnt"I did not ques
tion for a. moment but cohsidered this
Ida and I exeited ourselves to secute
a good organ, I for one had no desire to
give it to one class, to be used and
claimed as their particular property
to the exclusion of all other denomina
tions. Had this been my wish I should
have, as a matter of course, preferred
placing it in the hands of Episcopal
ians. I reminded the three ladies re
ferred to that only one or two Metho
dists were present at ihe concerts and
I thought as those who really paid for
the organ were of different beliefs, they
surely had as much right as the Meth
odists to the use and enjoyment of the
instrument. The ladies informed me
that the Presbyterians "refused to ac
cept the organ upon any conditions
whatever." Be this as it may I as
sure you I have not the most remote
idea of withdrawing my name from
the paper which gives you gentlemen
control of it, to be placed where you
wish; and used for any purpose your
judgment deems proper. I regret our
poor organ has been the cause of so
much trouble and I sincerely hope the
affair will be settled fatisfactorily all
around. I remain, yours respectfully,
Mary F. Gass.
Still Unsettled. At the quarter
ly meeting of the M. E. Church, held
at Phoenix on Saturday last, Rev. D.
A. Crow ell was authorized to act as he
judged best with regard to the cabinet
organ purchased, m part, with the pro
ceeds ot two concerts-given last Spring
by a number of young ladies aud under
the management of Misses Gass and
Martin. The programmes having been
headed, "for the benefit of the M. E.
Churchj' that organization now claims
the net proceeds of the,. concert, 110.
The oigan having cost Eomj. 78 in ex
cess of the sum raised, the church au
thorities, through Mr. . Crowell,
offer to tike ther insfrurViejit, pay the
indebtedness on it and-hold it as abso
lute chuich property under the exclu
sive control of the Trustees. The in
strument of writing published else
where, debars the custodians from ac
ceding to these terms and on Monday,
they, declining to deliver the instru
ment except under the prescribed con
ditions, were informed by Mr. Crowell
that suit for the 110 would be at
once commenced. It seems a slight con
cession on the part of the Church

Crescent City Road. There seems
to be much apathy on the part of the
people of Crescent City, with regard to
the boon we of Jackson and Josephine
counties propose bestowing on ihctn.
Looking round, it is discovered that
some people iu J'nckson county want
anybody but themselves to contribute.
Both counties want Del Norte county
to do its share, but as no action has
been tak'en there since the death of Mr.
Pomeroy who was on his way to San

evident that the people of Crescent I

the Bay city, follo, this principle,
will call on those rt New York and
the road won't li0 lilt. Without any
intention to burlesque it is too apparent
that there are too many people in the
three counties unwilling to help them
selves and waiting for some one else to
pull their mired wagon out of the mud.
They will wait a long while and grow
poorer and poorer, but just as long as
flour is sold as low as 12.50 per
thousand, as it was here last week,
newspaper men can get bread whether
tho farmer grows rich or not. All
may as well know that this enterprise
must bo aided by every one interested
according to his ability, and if the peo
ple on the coast want a road they must
show how much of it they are willing
to build. If the folks in Crescent
City are unwilling to put their should
ers to the wheel perhaps those of Ellens
burg may do better.
Important Suit. We have receiv
ed the brief in the case of J. B. Cros
sen appellant, vs. R. P. Eurhart respon
dent, now before the Supreme Court
Crossen as sherifT of Wasco county,
petitioned the Circuit Court for Mult
nomah county, for a mandamus to
compel Earhart, Secretary of State, to
allow his claim for mileage in addition
to the full compensation allowed for
conveying prisoners to the penitentiary
by st-itufe. Defendant demurred and
Judge Bellinger sustained the demur
rer. In his written opinion the Judge
laid down the principle that a subse
quent law, although not expressly re
pealing an existing law which is repug
nant to the new one, necessarily and
in effect does repeal it. In his decision
Judge Bellinger says that the "travel"
of a sheriff in conveying prisoners to
the penitentiary is a part of his duty
as sheriff, and to be compensated by
the per diem clause in the new act
which cuts ofT mileage. The position
of the Judge of the Circuit Court srems
impregnable and if his decree be affirm
ed by the higher court it will be a vir

was illegally paid. The decision of the

It is related that during the recent
snow-storm a weary foot-pad, seeking
rest and home but finding none, called
at the decaying log mansion of one of
our Oregon pioneers, and solicited a
night's lodging with the "lord of the
soil." Many reasons and excuses were
given and made by tho pioneer for his
inability to accommodate the stranger,
for even one night; but the unusual
fatigue of trumping through the snow
and wading streams, and the thoughts
of a night on the road caused the stran
ger to declare that he would go no far
ther, but would be satisfied to sit by
the fire till morning. He was then
permitted to go in but nearly repented
of his rash decision ere the dawn of
the morning light.
The meagre supply of wet and rotten
wood, just dug out of the snow, and
the neglected cracks and crevices in
every side aud roof of the house, ad
mitted a constant supply of the freshest
Oregon atmosphere to the great danger
of fresher colds and frosted feet. Dur
ing the evening's conversation the
stranger discovered that the pioneer
was a "granger'' and therefore early
next morning wishing to contribute
something for the benefit of his worthy
host he related the following dream he
had during the little sleep he got
through the night, viz:
A certain Patron of Husbandry, zeal
ous in the cause, and noted for the
much time ho spent in promulgating
its doctrines, and the great benefits de
rived therefrom, finally sickened and
died. Having given most of his tinib
to the great cause, which he hoped and
believed would warrant him a high
seat in the everlasting Grange above,
he marched boldly up to the outer gate
and rapped for admission. On being
asked who was there, replieil: "A
Husbandman from the Grange below."
"Have you been diligent and thorough
as a cultivator? and have you done all
your duty in trying to secure peace
and harmony among your neighbors?
and in doing to others as you would
have them do to you? or, have you been
recreant to your obligations, a promo
