Douglas County Senator Introduces
an Allopathic Bill.
Our Senator Marsters evidently has a
lack of faith in the snpernatural and a
faith core to him is an unknown element
of strength in the finite's frailty being
grasped in the hand of Divinity and
made whole. He has introduced a bill
into the Senate of which .the following
are the salient points :
"It shall be the duty of parents or
gnardians to give minors or other per
sons dpnflndpnt nnon them, in case Oi
sickness or injury, the prompt .care, aid
and attention of a physician or surgeon
competent to practice medicine or sur
gery in the State of Oregon.
"If in any case parents or guardians
refuse to give minors or persons depend

medical or surgical care, aiu and attend

DAKOTA DIVORCE BILL.
City Council W ill Extend the City's
On Tuesday evening the City Council
assembled in special soea:on to consider
the matter of extending the city's in
corporate limits to include both north
and south Kosoburg, whlcn also oom-
prises the new Kinner and Waite'addi
ture has assembled here for the purpose t5ong to R08eburg. It was decided "to
oi penonuuig curiam auues; among petition the legislature at the Dresent
.... i .
session to extond the boundaries as
herein set forth. The petition was pres
ented, read and adopted by the council,
administer upon the estate of Charles
S. Andrews, whom both women claimed
as husband. The record showed that
Mrs. Kate Andrews was -the first wife
and that her husband secured a divorce
in South Dakota alter remaining there
ix months, the time reouired by the
atute of that state. The Massachu
setts courts held that the decree had
been fraudulently secured,' and, refus
ing tn rwwxrnise it. reeounized the first
wife as the legal widow of the deceased
Mr. Andrews. That was the holding ol
the supreme judicial court of Massa
chusetts, and the opinion, which was
delivered by Justice . White, affirmed
that holding. He said that Andrews'
residence in the state of South Dakota
did not constitute legal domicile. The
case arose out of the fact that Mr. An
drews' father, Charles H. Andrews, be
queathed certain property to "the wife
of my eon, Chas 8. Andrews.'-' Justices
Brewer," Shiras and Peckham dissented.
In passing oa the case, Justice White
discussed at some length the question
whether the federal constitution is in
volved in any way in the case. He held
hat could not be, for the reason that
the general government never had any
power to delegate control over marriages
such power always having bee a vested
in the states and never parted with by
them. Hence, tEere is no power that
Congress could exercise to regulate or
nrohibit divorces, and it must follow
that, unless the several states were per
mitted to control the subject of divorce
among their own -citizens, the subject
would be entirely uncontrolled, in
which case the absolute destruction of
society must be the result. As Mr. An
drews had been a citisen of Massachu
setts, the courts of that ttate had juris
diction, and not the courts of another
state. It was evident, he went on, that
Andrews'six months' residence in South
Dakota has been taken up for the sole
purpose of securing a divorce ; that tem
porary change of residence did not
amount to domicile, nor to a change of
citizenship. For this reason, he held
that the South Dakota court was with
out jurisdiction in the divores proceed'
incs: and its decree wholly void. Nor
did it matter if there had been a com
promise with the first Mrs. Andrews,
and if she had been induced to consent
for a money consideration, as had been
alleged. The fact was that the case was
one lor Massachusetts courts and not for
" the South Dakota courts, and they
could not be deprived of their power by
this means. Jcetice Holmes took no
part in this decision, for the reason
that, as chief justice of the state of Mas
sachusetts, he had delivered the decision
declaring the Dakota decree invalid.
The allopathic doetors say that the
homeopathic doctors are-quacks, and the
homeopathic doctors say, that the
allopathic doctors are ignorant sharks,
and the osteopath iets say that
the little pill men as well as the big I ill
nen know nothing whatever about the
diseases and disorders of the human
body, and yet all have vast followinga
notwithstanding their w-r on each
other. According to the Flaixdsalb s
view of the various sects, cults and so
called science cures together with the
big and little'pill warfare this fact is ap
parent : if the Naxarine had power by
faith To heal the sick and diseased ; if
positive miracles were performed by
faith, and if that faith is still to be found
on earth a person professing that faith
is an alien to or an apostate from the
true principles of the Christian faith i:
dependence is placed in either the slip
bone or the little or big pill cure
We suppose that Senator Marsters has
introduced the bill by request and does
not father it in any particular for he
must remember the joke about the sour
kraut curing the Dutchman of cholera
and killine the Irishman who was
soaked full of "Erin go braugh."
these duties is to elect a United States
Senator. We have met bore daily for
more than a week and voted for the
man of our choice. In this joint as
sembly there are 73 Republican mem
bers. We can, if we will, unite upon a
candidate and elect a Senator. We
ought by all means to do this. The
time has now come when we should lay
our personal preferences aside and stop
voting for men whom we very well know
have no chance for election. The mi
nority ought to join the majority, and,
if not by caucus, then in open session,
choose a Senator. ,
"I am willing to sacrafice my personal
preference in the matter, to the end
that a Senator be chosen," and turning
to the restrum, "I ask you, Mr. Presi
dent, to order my vote changed and re
corded for Charles W. Fulton."
A storm of applause from the Fulton
supporters greeted Farrar's announce
ment, which continued for several niin-
uUs, and Farrar looked well pleased
with himself and everybody. If his
peech was calcinated to start a
slide in the direction of the Senator
from Clatsop, however, it failed of its ef
fect. The Geer men, the Democrats
and the Multnomah men were apparent
ly unmoved, and nobody arose to follow
in the footsteps of the Senator from
Marion. There were no other unusual
features attendant upon today's ballot.
Gill, of Multnomah, voted for C. f. S.
Wood again, and the other Multnomah
men cast their customary boquets at
the feet of their respective favorites.

PORTLAND'S $500,000 GRAFT.
The Fulndralkb in times past has
tried to save the' tax payers from grafts
and steals of public money under vari
ous guisis said to be for the public
good, and in exposing such intended
steals has clashed against many pro
positions, but'if we put all of the torn
binations and conspiracies to rob the
people into one pile and weighed -the
acireeation in the scales against the
Portland steal they would be light
the balance. '
And this gigantic steal is in no way
to be regarded as a political party stea
for every democrat in the house
representatives as well as in the senate
voted for the graft ; and Portland's soap
liad been so well rubbed in, that not
single pop or democrat had gumption
enough to rat up and as a party meas
ure demand that the graft be referred
to the people according to the referen
dam amendment. II ever the dem
ocrats exposed theirars and sang the
soft melodious notes of the animule on
any subject they have done so in this
matter ; and as is well known to repub
licans, representative democrats always
make asses of themselves when they
have a chance to pose as patriots in
stead of proving that they are a lot
belly-busting swag gorgera.
To such an extent has this direct
robbery ef the taxes been carried, that
our legislature, not content with foisting
a system of exhorbitant taxation on the
living, but they propose to tax the dead
in order to allow Portland to plunder
the State treasury. They know that the
living will utter a cry of anguish at the
increased bondage of taxation but that
a corpse cannot utter a cry or make a
kick; and after taxing a man for all
that he is worth while living like a lot
of vultures the Multnomah Portland
boodlers propose to feat upon the car
cass of the dead.
The people of Oregon should awake to
the true inwardness of this gigantic
steal which has been imposed upon
the state by a non-partisan, non-politi"
cial vote and should remember that sach
outbursts of enthusiasm by all classes
of politicians to press npon the tax pay
ers such a burden of taxation proves
that every member of the jury turning

the man who was supposed to have sliot
and killed Joln Wilkes Booth in a burn
ing Virginia barn after the assaesi nation
of President Lincoln, has been sum
moned from Old Mexico to identify, if
possible, the remains of D. E. George,
. the man who committed suicide at Enid,
Okla., and announced just prier to his
death that he was John Wilkes Booth
It is also stated secret service men have
been eummoned from Washington, D
v., ior me same, purpose, ana the re
mains are being held in the morgue
pending identification. One thing of
interest connected with the alxjve is the
fact that Corbett is alleged to be a fugi
tive from justice, having escaped from
an asylum in Kansas. George E. Smith
who came from Colfax, la., left Enid for
home Monday without making any dis
position of the remains. He visited
both Enid and El Reno in looking into
the property interests left by the suicide.
Relative to George being Booth, Smith
stated he was in possession of no secrets
and knew only of George s own state
ment in that matter.

Briefly stated : Fendal Satherlin was
a mier and buried 10,000 in his gar
den. Before he died he took" his daugh
ter Kate into the garden and showed
her where he had buried the money and
told her the amount and also that he
presented it to her for her own use.
After the man's death his daughter dug
up over f 9,000. The administrator, F.
B. Waite as administrator, brought suit
in the district court to recover the
money to the estate and Judge Hamilton-so
ordered giving as his reason that
the money was not delivered.
Nobody but the daughter, Mrs. Kate
Gribb knew about the money being
buried and she gave in the case informa
tion to the administrator. The money
not being in the actual possession of her
father at the time could not have been
delivered by him and the whole business
partakes of the nature of a quit claim
and it does seem to the Plaikds&lsb
that if there is any justice, and law is
not always justice, that the Suprrme
court will award the money to her even
though it has to revers eitself . A case
