the question of th'e reasonable and
proper completion of the roads ic ac

The circuit court is authoriz-d to rend

of the Act. The couit f.hU' have the

Somebody has condensed the mis
tikes of life, and ariived at the con
clusion that there are fourteen of
them. Most people would siv, if they
told the truth, that there was no limit
to the mistakes of lite; that ll'ey were
like the drops of the ocean or the sands
of the shore in number, but it is well
to be accurate. Here, then, are four
teen great mistakes.: It is a greit
mistuke to set up our own standard of
right aud wrong and judge other peo
plo accordingly; o rora,ure the enjoy
ment of others by our.own; to except
uniformity of opfnioti inTTiis "5-Srui; lo
look for judgment and experience in
youth; to endeavor to mould alloiiii
ious alike; to yield to immaterial
trifles; lo look for perfection in our
own ae'ionn; to worry oui selves and
others with .what can not be remedied;
not to alleviate all that needs allevia
lion as far as lies in our power; not to
make allowance for the iiilirintties of
others; to consider everything iiupossi

only vtli.it our finite minds ctn grasp;

Wholesale Lynching. The Pom
eroy "Times" of the 18th inst., con
tains au account of the alleged lynch
ing of four horse-thieves, on Salmon
river, between White' Bird and John
Day's, Miv 7. the executioners being
a party of stockmen from Asotin
county and the Idaho border. The
victims were a half-breed called "Jack,"
Tode Farmer, aged 25; Joe Grime?,
30; und John O'Neil, 25. They and
two others were captured with about
20 head of stolen horses. The lynch
ing was with ropes suspended from
trees, the doomed men being seated on
horses which were driven from under,
at a signal. One of the two prisoners
was taken to Asotin.

In reply to letters wLich wt fte
quently write to old friendi and
neighbors inviting them to pay us a
visit, we receive many from California
friends who say: "I will come and
see you when the railroad runs through
to Fortland from San Franeico."
That day is growing nearer though
slowly. It is now running to a point
ten miles this side of Delta, just a lit
tie platform on the headwaters of Sac
ramento river not far from
where the JMcCloud cornea down, tang
ing its boiling song to the far off sea.
This little is in Shasta county on the
confines of Siskiyou, which is ad
joining the county of Jackson in this
State. It libs up in what is called
the State range, and thenceforth the
progress of the road will be tlew
until it ge.ts into Shasta valley, where
it will have forty miles of much easiei
grade than it now encounters. The
road will be in operation to Baileys
near the foot of Mount Shasta, by the
1st of September and then tho over
land travel will begin lo increase as
tint stage travrl gets down to about
sixty-fiveiiiilea. The Sceneiy along the
road is the Guest in tho world and the
tourist who comes by sea, rui-aes the
grandest and most beautiful ri les on

land belles will find the JLCioud
river springs a great summer resort in
a year or two and will meet the lovely

And when the road ia complete we
will see lots of people who do not like
to risk a sea voiage, and who will
spend lots of inouey when they come
amongst us -
That's the ridiculous side of the

from the standpoint of serious con

Jl Gastly River Mystery.
At nosn yesterday the steamsr
"Dawn" picked up tne body of a largt
man, apparently about 45 years of agr,
in the middle channel, abreast of the
city, and brought it to Hume's dock,
where the co'roner and doctor examined
it. The Jjpdy was clothed in a gray
woolen drawers and one boot, and had
evidently been in the water some weeks.
Examination disclosed the fact that a
most fearful murder had been com
mitted. On the head were three ter
tible cuts made by a (harp knife or
hatchet, half an inch deep and three
inches across. The forehead was
snmked and the skull broken in. A
hole behind the right ear being probed,
showed where a bullet had broken the
jaw and ranged downward, the sur
geon extracting the ball from the left
side of the neck. Other marks of
violence inJicated a desperate struggle
for life on the part of the unfortunate
man, who may have been murdered
100 miles above here and whose booy
was rolling to the ocean when picked
up. The coroner's inqaest was post
poned till 2 o'clock this afternoon,
when it in believed testimony will be
procured tending to throw some light

Mrs. Green, from whom it was pur
chased, by the terms of the sale was
allowed thirty days in which to vacate
the prei.iise, but lifts became a burden
by reason of hoardps who intruded
upon the privacy of the p'ace, and she
notified the President that she would
leave as soon as possible. The Presi

place looked like a camp roieting. It

A Chinaman arrived hero yesterday
who wishes to engaga 1000 of his
countrymen to work on the extenaion
of the California & Oregon railroad.
He will not be able to engage any
men, although he offers $25 por month.
About all the Chinese here who engage
in such work are employed at wood
chopping, and at the fisheries. A vast
number of men are at work now on
the C. i O. railroad, judging from the
move to secure a thousand Chinamen
here there is to be no stop to the work,
and the prospect for connection by
rail with San Francisco in the birar
future looks very favorable. "Orego
nian." It is now believed to be as good as a
settled fact that tbe tiparring match
between John L. Sullivan and Charles
Mitchell, which the Chicago authorities
will not permit in that city, will take
place in Milwaukee on June 11th.
Pal SLeedy has so decided, and has
about completed arrangements for the
Opeaa house as the place for holding
the exhibition. It is not believed that
the authorities at that place will offer
any opposition, and for that reason,
and as it is nearer Chicago than any
other place which could be selected,
the probabilities seem to be that the
two men will meet there.
Two drunken Indians, ejected from
the California and Oregon Railread
near Andersen, Shasta county, Cal.,
Sunday, in revenge endeavored to
wreck a freight train by placing au ob
struction on the track. The engine
passed over the obstruction which was
secured, and the noble red men are
being sought for.
The President seems tn be driven to
