by bin ili-i imiiii iu thu la nniT und 1-a

involving title to laiida in the city of

Mr. Kiur.iu in 1H:I, had this tract of
laud laid nil into city lota and recorded

parlicH liolduig title from tho United
Stati'H govcrnmeul through Kobert A.

iu the city of Chicago, 111. Mr. Kiuxie's
patent embraced tho "lot or fractional

w if la the dilluite lines of United States

lu coneeiiience ol the lake uhoro re
ceding and thus increasing the amount
ul the land iu said fractional north half
of Hitid section and the valuable improve'

ment for speculators to lay claim to it,
and two uieu, Bcnner and La Follette
have t-ought title east of the shore line as
it cxiHtcd iu is;il, (when Kiuisie pur-i-liat.ed
it Iroui the I'nitud States) as gov

This claim Iiiih been contested and
brought before Mr. Hermann, the pres

Mr. Hermann has made ail claboiate
und exhaustive review of this celebrated
cane und has "upset the claims" of theso

three Imly tneoibers of Women' Itelief
Corps No. 10, all bound for the Grand
Army Encampment lo benaiu at Inde
nendenco b&gmning tbat morning and to
last lour oays, we were toon wuirnng
over the country, and ia a few minutes
parsed through tlio little village of Win
chenler, which, aa you all well know, if
sofougly situatel on the bauk of the
coo) and lovely North Umpqua. Speed
ing on with the fleetomt with which the
H, P. railroad Is capable, we were soon
in sight of Wilbur, one of the pleasantly
tituatod and quiet town in Douglas
county. Ho far our party had been most
ly interested in viewiDS the ceueral an-
fiearance of the country and remarking
the pronpect for short crops. Oakland
camo next, as pretty a town aa ever, and
looking bright as of old, seemingly every
body moving about aa though prosperity
had come. Kooo we pass Yoncalla, an
other beautiful little city, and on by
lioawell Springs, the noted health reeott
of this county, and arrived at Drain on
time. This is where the Dralu normal is
located and a pleasant prosperous coun
try all around, full of generous hearted
cluzerie like we Oud all over Oregon.
1'rom here we n(8 on over by Corastock
and soon we are out of Douglas county.
When wo betsao this article we thought
we could mention all the towns along the
way, but we must not get our story too
long, ana win only say mat we landed
in Albany, making connection with the
O. C. A E. train fur Corvaliis , arriving
in tbat city just iu time to catch the
traiu on the est side for inderendence,
aud on our arrival at that city our part?
was complete; for here we found our
comrades, McCoy and I'arfous, as busy
as they could be, entertaining friends.
They bad secured a One room aod had
established headquarters for lCcno Tost.
The quarters hsd boeu elaborately deco
rated with flags, bunting and evergreens,
and a beautiful banner hung in one of
llio windows, auuounciug a cordial wel
come lo all friends of the old Union Vet
erauB. Evergreens were everywhere,
inside and out, with small flags entwined
among the branches in a very tasteful
and artistic style; iu fact, it was the
prettiest place iu the city almost, and it
did not take long lo see that it was also
the most popular. There were plentv
of comfortable chairs, including some
largo rockers, which were ereatly en
joyed by our friends of the Itelief Corr,
wlioeu vieits wo hi.bly appreciated and
enjoyed. Here let us eay that we great
ly prize auo esteem me capaDiimes aud
work that our worthy proeideot of Iteno
Relief CoJpi, No. 10, has been able to
accomplish, for she is a lady that any
Kelief CoriH) or Oraud Army l'oat should
be proud of, aud one whom all should bo
pleased to honor for her patriotic loyalty
to the cause of the old Veterans, and we
love to honor all tho ladles in lieno
Corps, who espouses the, cause ol the
union soldiers, ine moet ol our party
secured a splendid place to bocrd with a
private family, ami the rest were near
by. pleasantly situated. Our landlady
did everything in her power to make our
stay with them as happy and pleasant as
possible, and she proved to be a great
success. Oh ! those delicious meals.
Yes, every one of us came away with re
gret at having to leave the pleasant and
honpitablu home of Mr. and Mrs. Walk
er, who had bo royally provided and
hud done so much lor our pleasure and
comfort, aud each of our party remarked
that if it was ever our fortuue to visit
Independence, we certainly would be
glad if Mrs. Walker would again care
for us. The work of the Encampment
pasted oil' to the entire satisfaction of
our delegation. Our work being over we
packed our effects and gave ourselves up
to pleasure. On Friday afternoon our
party visited the little city of Monmouth
(by way of the baby It. It.) and spent
two hours very pleasantly visiting al the
college aud its grounds, which are tine.
I'resideut Campbell took pleasure iu os
cortinit us througli the building aud quar
ters, aud wo fouud him to be a very
a Ila bio gentleman. After doing the col
lego we sauntered about the little city
till traiu time. Ou this point we had
hard work to keep our party in bounds.
Oue of our ladies w ent mto raptures over
some of tho beautiful gardens aud really
wished mat she migut dig some potatoes,
Another actually broke away from us
aud rushed into a doorjard lo inspect
some rare flowers, while a geulleman of
tho party, who stands high in our com
munity, picked cherries without asking
for them. Returning to Iudependeuce
for au early supper, alter which we took
our grips aud started to the river, where
alter waiting about au hour aud a half
wo boarded the Steamer Albany aud
started up tho beautiful Willamette riv
er to the city of Albany, where we ar
rived very lato iu thu night, lu regard
to that trip up tho lovely river, perhaps
tho least said about it the bettor, but the
stuuning concert, the impromptu speech
es, tho uuliiiug Kual oi our ladies to
make the time pass pleasantly, the mid
uiifut lunch aud the all arouud jolly fuu
of that night will long ho remembered by
our entire party, aud we almost sigh for
tho time to roll arouud quickly when
maybe wo might moet all up at The
At Albany we were outertaiued iu re
gal style at the St. Charles Hotel, whore
we found everything so ueat aud clean,
aud very obliging proprietors. Wo alao
did thin town, visiiing the Colloge and
and grounds aud our old townsman aud
friend Rev. W. A. Smick. We were de
lighted to find the family all well and
enjoying a loyely hoiixt. At l.:30 we
boarded the southbound romii train for
Rosoburg, and we thorougly enjoyed
every moment of the time uuPt we
stepped from tho car at home.
We believo that it is safe to tay that
no parly ever left Rosoburg more deter
mined ti) make it pleasaut for Hie others,
und well iudeed did each succeed.
While engaged in our work ut Inde
pendence, we spent many pleasant mo
ments with, und received much aid from
many of our trusted frieuds, among

Portland Postoffice Badly Wrecked
Escaping Gas the Cause.
The basement and entire lower por
tion of the postoflice building was wrecked
by a terrific explosion of gas at 1:20
this afternoon, says the Portland Tele
gram of Monday last.
Patrick Maloney, the head janitor of
the federal building, had a miraculous
escape from death. He was severely
burned about the head aud arms. Will
iam Carlyle, a clerk in the stamp de
partment, was the only other person
hurt. He received a painful scalp wound
from falling debris. Heavy damage was
done to the building, and in every de
partment the shock threw the employes
into great confusion.
Moloney's escape from death is almost
past understanding. In the janitor's
storeroom in the basement a great vol
ume of gas had accumulated from a leak,
and when it was ignited from a lighted
candle in the hands of a plumber, there
was an explosion that shook the city.
Molouey was burned about the face, his
eyebrows, his hair and mustache were
burned, and there were severe scalp
wounds, the neeh on hit hands and
arms was mangled aud lorn until he
presented a repulsive sight.
The north end of the poetoflice build
ing presents a scene of wreckage. The
plastering was torn from the walla, the
casing of the stairs was ripped off, lath
ing split into fine kindling and all the
basement windows on a level with the
ground were blown out glass, frame
ami all. The shock was so great that
the poetoflice employes ran out in the
wildest alarm. In (he registry division
of the postoflice in tbe northwest corner
the onice eirects were scattered all over
the floor. The air was rilled with nying
pieces ol debris and omce furniture was
tossed about as if there bad been an
About the stairs leading down lo the
basement at tbe north entrance to tbe
bnildiug tho worst damage was done.
The hallway was obstructed with wreck
age, and the stairways leading to the
second floor were torn down.
It is singularly fortunate tbat ii was a
dull lime of day at tbe poetoflice build
ing, lieiog the noon hour, tbe corridors
were almost deserted, or there vould
have been numerous injuries.
The concussion was beard oyer the en
lire city. A second after, great clouds
of dust from the demolished plastering
obscured the hallways, and as hundreds
of excited ople rushed to the scene-,
the cry was set up inai a dozeu people
were iu the corridor at the lime and had
Tho terrible effects of tho explosion
were shown later as tbe air cleared. The
door to the city delivery division in the
corner of the corridor near the general
doliver windows of the postoflice is
locked with a strong lock. This door
was blown off its binges and 20 feet into
tbe city .delivery department. Strange
to eay none ol the employes were near
it, and no one waa hurt. -
lorn from their cement settings the
tiles of the flooring lay cast about in con
fused heaps. The stairways leading to
tbe United States courts on the second
floor had been almost completely demol
ished, the mere side framing of the stairs
temainicg. Transoms on both tbe Mor
rison aud Fifth-street entrances and
windows of the different delivery and
registry departments of the postoflice bad
been blown to atoms and into the
Hqulrrel pulHou at Maralcru.'
The democrats preached for years the
doctrine that tbe people of ibis country
wero sutlering from a vast number ol
evils which free trade alone could re
move. The people finally put them in
power, and we are still suffering from
the evils which a partial adoption of
their scheme brought upon os. Now
they say that all these present evils, and
those they formerly enumerated, have
nothing to do with the tariff, but that
freo silver at 10 to 1 is the oue sovereign
remedy. Are the people fools enough to
trust them again'.' Astoriau.

health. No wo
