Survey ing Boats-
The boats to be used by tfie sur
veying paity to Crater lake will be ou
exhibition this evening at Ball's boat
lnuse, foot of Stark street. The soun-
ding apparatus is fitted into the larger
of the three. It consists of two heavy
ash timbers projecting overjthe stern,
with a pull oer which a line runs
from a windlass -amidships, taking the
vire or Cord, as 'the case Laay be, from
a reel placed iu the bow. On the end
of the journal of the pully is a speed
indicator; showiug the I'cniLer of res
olutions made by the pully, and thus
the depth of the water is determined.
Mr. W. G Steel has named his soun
ding boat "Cleetwoud." No such
word exists in any language and it has
& peculiar and interesting . orgin.
home lire- rga, while on his way to
Sin Fiancisco, Mr. Steel dreamed that
he was in he company of his father,
and that they both saw the heavens.
In the dream ihey wended their way
through the winding streets of aa an
cient city, when Mr. Steel asked:
"Will, do you want to see something
beautiful?" "Yes" was the answer.
Mr. Steel waved his hands abovo his
head and commanded his on to look.
In3tautly the heavens became filled
with golden arrows, which Mr. Steel,
Jr, upon inquiry, learned was "Clent
noittl." And thus it came to pass that
a boat wass provided ,vith this name.
Hon. T, 13 O lineal, for many years
a resident of Salem, and who, durinf,
an activu business life, has occupied
many positions of honor and trust,
dif d at the Chemeketa hotel in Sulpm
lait night from the effects of an attRck
of appoplexy, which occured but a fen
hours firetious. Many who have
known him in his better days will be
pained to hear of his death, as he pos
sessed many good qualities and was a
man amnngmen before misfortune
overlook bitu. He was gf-uorous and
warm heat ted wilt his friends, and
was well thought of in idyn of his
ptospeiity. His yotfiigpst son was

his wasted body will bo I,iid nt res.t
beside his wife at Corvallis, the fun
eial cortej-e having here at 11 A.M.
to-day. KiDdfriendawliOiui.il knewn
bin, in bet ler days, were with him at
the lSst, and fair bauds in memory
of a happy past to-day strewed his
casket with floral tributes, and
silently wept over an almost wasted
life. He was a member of the Al
bany lodge of Workmun, his insur
anco policy of 2000 having been
made out in favor of his daughter,
at present, in Washington, D C, be
tween whom existed continued devo
tion through weal and woo.
The official teim of the governor is
four years. Governor Moody's term,
therefore, will expire on the second
Monday in next September. But the
returns of the vote for governor are re
quired to be sent, ssaietl to the secre
tary of state, who delivers thtm un
opened to the speaker of the house of
representatives. Tho tpeaker then
opens tho returns and the vote is can
vassed by the house. As the legitla
turori0 the law of 18S2, does not
meet until January. 1887, Governor
elect Pennoyer cannot be qualified
when the term of his predecessor ex
pires. The question arises, can the
lesislature, by changing the' time of
canvassing the vote, extend the term
of the governor beyond the constituti
onal Hmit! If not, who Vill be gover
nor after September 13lh? Or will we
have any governor! The law provides
that the governor shall continue in
office until his successor is qualititd.
But the law did not contemplate, cer
tainly, that any legislature could by
enactment prevent such qualification
so as to extend the guberuational term.
If the lecisla'ura can extend such
term three mouthsj as in this case, by
postponng the canvass, why cannot jt
extend it three or four or any number
of yean! The term is fixed by the con
sututicn. Can the legislature alter it?
The President of the New York
Central says the company have lost
money on every fast 'rain run from
New York to Buffalo, but they are
compelled to keep the trains on, so
great is the competition. The rate of

Guarding Tlie,:Itich-
The private aerrice for tns pro'ec
tion of the Yauderbilts, Astofa and
Gould was organized thrpa years ago,
an.l 13 ostensibly separate! for Pach
family, though the men wro dtftud
ha "Vnderbilts and Aston are provid
ed byjthe same establishment antl work
together. Regular atrol duty is
doue, night and day, and twenty detec
tives are exclusively employed for the
- urpose. Tl.eiearefour Astorresiden
ces and fit e belonging to the Vander
bilt.s, all in or clove 'to Fifth avenue,
between Thirty.third and Fifty second
streets. The spies are on watch eight
hours each per day, and the beats are
to arranged that the nine houses can
not be apiiroached unseen ".by ono or
nioro of the guardsmen. William II.
V-tnderbili was iheorigiimtor cf this
system, and he was incited to it by
the largo number of cranky letters
whiihjifl received. Ho profecsed to
have no fear of rational evil-doers.
but was apprVliPiisiiR that maniacs
rn'glit attack iiim or lorao member of
his family- Since Jiis death the mails
have been laden with all sorts of ap
peals, demands and ihreald directed to
his sons.
Jay GoultlV self-protection is more
secret and characteristic. Up does not
trust it to a detctive agency, but hires
his own body guard. For years he
has been alwa)snccofnpaiiieiI by a stal
wart young fellow. But that is a safe
jruarl against Wall Street enemies
Cr.m .s who might cut up capers in or
.troutiti his home are under the view
of sp'e.s whoP quarters are in n room
ot the Windsor Hotel, across :he way.
That is additional duty doue by a sep
arate Set of men. These employes of
the mill ionjirM families, whos" names
are poor poople's synonyms for wealth,
are kept informed as to every new
demonstration by a crank, and they
are alert to descry and drive off the
niononiaiiidcps who attempt any ex
ploits. During tho Western strikes
J.tv. Gould made the trips between his
home ami oUici in a cab, instead of
fleialed cr, as formerly; and it is ob
tervtd that a ring at hi-, bell brings a
siunteiing watchman to the foot of
the slej.s abuut r.! quickly as if does
Milwaukee Sentinel."
The firs; marriage in the whi'e
home took place in 1811, when Miss.
Todd, a relative of Piesident Madi
oii' wife, Married1 John J. Jackson, a
Virginia congressman. The npxt was
tint of Monroe's daughter Martha to
Mr. Gouvernur, of New York, about
nine years later, and in 1826 tho son of
President Adams married his cousin,
Miss. Jack son j there. During the ad
tuii.istration of Jackson one of the
diplomats, a man named Pageot, who
afterwards represented the French
government in this country, was mar
ried in the white house to the daugh
ter of Andrew Jackson's close friend,
Major Lewis of Nashville,, and Jack
son's hieco was married during this
administration to a Mr. Polk, of
Ttinuestee. During Tyler's adniinis
tration his daughter was married to a
Virgiuian named Waller, and duricg
Grant's term his daughter Nellie was
united with Sartoris, anEnglish gen
tleman. Another marriage during the
da, 8 of Grant's administration was
that of Gen. Russell Hastings and
and Miss Eiutlv Piatt.
Missouri has reaped a victory and
won a laurel that will surprise the
world. Senator Cockrell introduced
the correct pronunciation of "oleomar
garine" in the senate to the" confusion
of a great majority of members who
have been calling it "oleamarjirine."
Thero can be no longpr a doubt about
Cockrell'n return next spring. Miss
ouri will hardly commit Jtbe suicidal
act of retiring from the national gaze
iho man who has ruadr her famous at
last.
Clackamas coun'v lavs claim to th-i

Faro, who lives near Oregon City.
He is one hundred jejisold, voted at

He has been a resident of Oiegon forty
yeirs, and was represented at the late
pioneer reunion at Oregon City by

Tales of a Pig Wind-
Stories of Hip recent "cycione in
Ohio are coming in quite freely, but
they do not approach the mighty
stories of the tornado that swept up
the val.ey of the riaring Oodota'f, in
York county, in the spring of 1842.
After the storm we speak of one farmer
found that his well had Iresn frulltvi
up by the roots and was hanging en
the limbs of a white oak tree four
miles away. A cel'ur belonging to
one of his neighbors was split in two
one half of it being blown throtrgh
a stone quarry and the otber half
turned up' end wise against n haystack
in the adjoining county. A flack of
gee&o were completely snipped 0 their,
feathers by the wind, and u uried ap
ple pie was Mown through the side of
aJ tchool-bouse, ternfjing the lecher
and scholars, besides ruining a large
map of ths grasshopppr'districtof

fifteentoiis" of hay wu lifted iilf its
feet and carried bodily six miles down
the valley, it selt'eddown so tjimrely
that the doors couldnot boi pened
without prying them. Tht wind
blew thejails off six Durham cows,
and a- Berkshire pig weighing 200
pounds wasblown completely through
his skin the l;ido remaining in a standing
position and preserving an expression
of naturlness that deceived many Tis
itors. The boundary lines of several
townships were bent all out of shape,
so lhat they looked like a curled hair
mattress on a hot griddle, and the air
was b'own bo completely out of the
valley that people had to go up onjtlia
hill when they wauled 10 breathe.

Ihe marriage of Miss Folsom lo
President Cleveland recalls the fact
that Amelia Folsom, a cousin of hers
married Brighatn Young several years
ago. Miss Amelia was Brighani'a
sixteenth "wife."
The wife of President Cleveland is 22,
and vpry probable will be a president'
widow from forty to spventy vears,
rirawing a pension of 5,000 per an-s
nuiu, as the woman who married
President Tyler forty three years ago
is still doing, hence Miss Folsom will
probaly be an expense of not Ipsk than
300,000 to the people of the Untied
Stales.
