Grand Jury Report. We, the
.Grand Jurors, would most respectfully
submit the following as our final re
Jiort. We have examined into all
crimes that have leen submitted to us
for investigation and have found in
dictments in such cases as the law re
quired. We have examined the
county jail and find the premises se
curely kept but find the ventilation of
the jail bad and liable to cause disease.
Steps should be taken to remedy the
tevil which we believe can be done
without great expense by placing a
pipe through the centre of the roof
and extending it up fifteen or twenty
feet which pipe should be at least ten
inches in diameter; this will create a
draught inward through the grating
of the cells and give the prisoners more
pure air. We have examined the
Court House and grounds and 2nd
them neatly and cleanly kept We
End the acoustics of the Court room
very bad and a great annovance by
reason of the sounds reflected from the
walls blending with the articulate
fe0undsjn.ivsu,ch.a r?r-,ner aiyto make

vrJJch the troublesome sounds are re
flected. This we think"clfii;L'e'doneat
a comparatively trilling expense and
will effectually remedy the evil with
out injuring the appearance of the
room. We have examined the county
record, the Sheriff's Treasurer's and
County Clerk's offices and find so far
as we are able to judge that they are
all properly kept, and in accordance
with law. Wo have etamlried the
county hospital and find eleven in
mates. The jnmates state that they
kar no complaints to wake, that they
are well fed and nave proper medical
attention, and we would judge from
appearances that they are as well kept
as the circumstances will admit, yet
we would suggest that tlu county pur
chase a piece of land and erect suitable
buildings thereon for keeping the
county poor. We would state that
the papers returned to us from Rus
tics Court were not complete in a ma
jority of cases, so returned to us, which
was an inconvenience to the grand
jury. Therefore we would suggest
that the county court withhold pay
ment of Justice fees in such cases un
til such papers are completed as re
quired by statute. Having now per
formed all the duties required of us we
ask to be discharged.

reporter's inqniries -with a -bland
smile, and "I don't know." He can't
tell yet whether he will call a special
session of the Legislature or appoint
a successor to Mr. Slater, or whether
he will do the other thing. The Chief
Executive, however, knows that Ore

which information was furnished the
reporter gratuitously. It was rumor

that the Governor was in town to con

Red Men Celebration. The cel
ebrution of the 12b of-May, St Tam
many's Day, by Oregonian-Pocahon-tas
Tribe No. 1, I. O. R. M., was the
most pronounced success of the season.
The fes'ivities were inaugurated by
the arrival of ths Henley Silver Cor
net band at 9 A. M. The Jacksonville
Silver Cornet band and a number of
citizens in carriages and on horseback
met ths Henley band a short distance
from town and escorted them th.ougb
ths principal streets of the town while
the bands played alternatively, calling
out almost our entire population. At
1 P. M., Oregonian-Pocabontas Tribe
No. 1 in full regalia led by the master
of ceremonies T. T. McKenzie, and
preceeded by the two Silver Cornet
bands marched through the principal
streets, and to their handsome '.lew
Wigwam, where a larce assembly was
already in waiting. Ths hall was soon
full to. its utmost capacity and many
were disappointed in not being able to
witness the interesting ceremonies for
want of room. Ihe members of the
Tribe formed a circle in front of the
GreauSachem, and upon an altar ia
the circle was. placed the emblems of
the. ereer with aburkine tapertupoii

first officers and ths Prophet were
hung wi'h tapestries of red white and
blue, our national colors, and appeal
us they ever do in combination to
American patriotism. On ths stumps
in front of the officer's chairs were
crossed and handsome vases of fragrant
flowersthatexhaludtheirodors over the
symbolical but harmless tomahawk,
a rare intermingling of nature and art,
and the symbols of savagery and ciil
zation. The Great Sachem, D. Crone
miller, called the house to order with
a rap of the tomahawk an I the Mis
hinnswas advanced from the Eist
Wes North and South, and deposited
their war clubs at the corners of the
altar as an evidence of good will. The
master of ceremonies then introduced
the building c-inimittee, under whose
supervision the wigwam had been
erected to the Great Sachem. The
chairman of the committee surrendered
their trust to the Sachem, thanking
the brethren for the confidence repofid
in them and, invoking the blessing of
the Great Spirit on tbe moral edifice
each was erecting in their lives. Th
Great Sachem congratulated tho com
mitteo on the successful completion of
the work intrusted to them, and awar
ded them the praise of duty well done,
and assured them that their fidelity
and skill was duly appreciated by the
brethren. The Great Prophet, J. T.
Roloson, with tomahawk uplifted, and
in the name of the Great Spirit sol
emnly dedicated the Wigwam to chari
ty and benevolence, and advanced and
laid hw tomahawk on the altar. The
'Great Sachem affirmed the dedication
by authority of the Great Council of
,'the United States and the Great Coun
cil of the State of Oregon. The Mis
hinewas then proclaimed the dedication
from the East, West, North and South.
Tub Great Prophet then took a bowl
of pure water and sprinkled the floor
of the ,W'gwam 8ayingi in the name
of that freedom that proclaims liberty
of speech I dedicate this Wigwam, in
the name of friendship pure as this
water; 1 dedicate this Wigwam, to
that charity that sutferith long and is
kind, endureth all thiugs, and with
which we may accomplish the ends of
this institution I dedicate thia Wig
warn.' The Great- Prophet then offer
ed a fervent prayer that the blessing
of the Great Sji'rit m'ght ever rest on
tbe members of ihe Tiibe, and that the
Divine Sanctionmight be vouahafed to
them in the dedication of their Wig
warn and when death should forever call
them from this earthly forest they
might be forever re united around the
Great Council Fire of Eternity. The
choir sang a beautiful quartette and
the ceremonies concluded with the
grand honors of the Tribe. Although
the exercises were new to the greater
part of the large assemblege present,
they were facina'tingly, interesting
throughout The wierd symbolizing
ef the traditions of the prisiitive Red

Anoid-fUtlilontil Idea.
The old-fashioned idea that one
should never enter a sick room with as
emptv stomach is a truo ouc. The
gaUrio juice is not secreted in an
empty stomach; it is only when toed
is taken that the stomach and diges
ticn commences that the gastric juice
is present. All germs are killed by
coming in contact with healthy gastric
juice therefore a full stomach fortifies
one against contracting Contagious dis
eases. De Haven's Dyspepsia Cure is
especially adapted to act upon the di-
gestiveguicesot tbe system and keeps
them in a pure and natural condition.
In this mariner it ensures proper di
gestiori and assimilation of ths foed.
It never fails to effect a curs in tht
most obstinate cases of Dyspepsia;
Indigestion, Flatulency and Sickhead
ache. Sample bottle free at E: C,
