The latest scare the Chinese Six
Companies have sprung is that they
intend to deport all their able bodied
Chinamen themselves to Mexico
and Canada, and in so doing will
create a demand for the opium lov
ing celestials. We sincerely hope
that they will do that very thing.
The people of the Pacific coast are
perfectly willing that the firm begin
The Leader will please take
notice that the school superintend
ent of Benton county has already
apportioned the school money for
the various districts in Benton coun
ty and the district clerks have the
money. Your restraining order
came a little too late. Gazette.
The superintendent of Benton
county evidently got into a rush to
get the money apportioned. Still
our order is not entirely too late as
the money is not all apportioned,
that referred to being but a part of
the funds. Taxes are not all paid
in Benton county and the roll has
not yet become delinquent, so there
will be some money left to restrain.
As far as that is concerned, Mr.
Bryau has given bonds in amply
sufficient amount to indemnify
Lincoln county for any loss she
might sustain by reason of what
appears to be his overt act in plain
ly disregarding the law in the mat
ter. The Gazette will please notice
that Mr. Bryan is still in the hands
of the Lincoln county court.
In an exchange recently we not
iced that a woman nearly eighty
years old was adjudged insane and
committed to the insane asylum.
In another exchange we noticed
that application had been made to
the reform school to take charge of
a youth of the tender age seven
years. These are the marks of evils
that have been permitted to grow
up wumn our stale, i lie woman
of eighty might have been insane
but we believe that it was nothing
more than childishness brought on
by the years that has rolled over
her head and hastened, no doubt,
by that very spirit of her children,
that sought to place that mother
which brought them into the world
and cared for them as only a moth
er can, into that most lnr.eous of
places, the insane asylum. That a
woman of eighty years of age
should be so dangerously insane
as to require shutting up within
the stone walls of an asylum is ab
surd. We venture to say that if the
love and care that a mother is en
titled to from her children had been
bestowed upon her she would have
been as sane as the average woman
oi eignty is. As lor the parents
that would seek to place a child of
the age of seven in the reform
school, the thing ought to le re
versed. The child should le t!ar.
ed in the hands of those of su trid
ent intelligence and firmness to
properly govern him, and the par
ents placed in some sett of a reform-atory.
SENATE BILL NO. 119.
IWI OK THK hkff I'RKATINH
There has been so many conflict- i
ing reports concerning the bill ere-'
ating Lincoln county, that we pub- j
lish the bill in full as it appears in
the session laws. It is as follows:
Be it enacted by the Legislative
Assembly of the State of Oregon.
Section i. That all that por
tion of the state of Oregon embrac
ed within the following boundary
lines be and the same is hereby
created and organized into a seper
ate county by the name of Lincoln
to wit: Beginning at the north
west corner of Siletz Indian reser
vation; thence east to the Polk
county line; thence south to the
Benton county line; thence east six
miles to the west boundary of range
7 west of Willamette meridian;
thence south on said range line to
the center of township 13 south;
thence west on the section line to
the range line between ranges 8
"'id n west: thcr.ee south to the
Lane county line; thence west along
the said line of Lane county to the
Pacific ocean; thence north along
the Pacific ocean to place of begin
ning. Section 2. That the territory
embraced within the said bounda
ry lines shall compose a county for
all civil and military purposes, and
shall be subject to the same laws
and restrictions and be entitled to
elect the same officers as other
counties in this state: Provided.
That it shall be the duty' of the
governor as soon as convenient af
ter this act shall become a law, to
appoint for Lincoln county and
from its citizens the several county
officers allowed by law to other
counties in this state, which said
officers, after duly qualifying ac
cording to law, shall he entitled to
hold their respective offices until
their successors are duly elected
at the general election of 1894, and
have duly qualified according to
Section 3. The temporary coun
ty seat of Lincoln county shall be
located at Toledo iu said county,
until a permanent location shall be
adopted. At the next general
election, the question shall be sub
mitted to the legal voters of said
county, and the place, ii any, which
shall receive a majority of all votes
cast at said election shall be the
permanent county seat of said coun
ty; but if no place shall receive a
majority of all the votes cast, the
question shall again be submitted to
the legal electors of said county at
the next general election, between
two points having the highest num
ber of votes at said election ;and the
place receiving the highest at such
last election, shall be the perma
nent county seat of said county.
The county court of Lincoln county
shall not expend a larger sum than
$500 of the funds of said county for
the erection of county buildings un
til the county seat is permanently
Suction 4 That the said Lin
coln county shall be annexed to
Benton county for representative
purposes, also for senatorial pur
poses. Benton shall be entitled to
elect one representative, and Ben
ton county with Lincoln county be
entitled to elect one joint represen
tative and one joint senator,
Section 5. The county clerk of
Benton county shall, within thirty
days after this act shall have gone
into operation, make out and de
liver to the courty clerk of Lincoln
county a transcript of all taxes as
sessed upon persons and property
within said county of Lincoln which
was previously included within the
limits of Benton county; and all
taxes which shall remain
unpaid upon the ti uy this act shall
become a lavv, shii'.l le paid to the
proper officers of Lincoln county
The said clerk of j'Jtntou shall also
make out and deli er to the county

time above limited a

"Do you know," shrieks a Salem
paper, "that yo-i ought to send
twenty-five cents to this paper to
learn how to vote?" Well, we don't
know as we do, but if you have
an patent way of voting that is
really worth two-bits, all right,
But our observation of the Salem
way of voting is that it is of the
same old kind, and a pretty
kind at that.
At 1 o'clock Tuesday morning
the Ilillsboro Democrat was entirely
burned out. The fire started iu the
upper part of the building, and is
supposed to have been of incendiary
origin. The los will foot up some
thing like ?4,ooo, J 1,000 of which
was in the building. The Demo
crat's loss is all the greater from
the fact that a new plant had very
recently been put in, the proprietors
discarding the old hand press and
submitting steam. Fortunately,
however, some insurance was car
ried, but just how much it is im
possible at this time to ascertain.
Bro. San ford has our sincere condo
lence for lii's loss, and we hope he
will soon resume the publication of
C. II. Gest, the general attorney
of the Oregon Pacific, says that
after meeting its April pay-roll the
company had a surplus of $2,000,
an increase of $1,1:23 over March.
March was the I rst month that
Receiver Iladley had control, and
the $77 earned that month was
considered a very creditable showing
coming as it did after the road had
monthly been losing thousands of
dollars. The company is now im
proving the physical condition of
the road, and is abo building a new
depot at Toledo. Mr. Gest says
that the report circulated in the
East, that the caviling, of the road
are due to the fact that the new
officials are using materials left by
the Hoggs, is false. "We found
no materials whatever," he said,
"but did find a large debt."
It is very gratifying to see the
earnest and energetic way in which
the people of Toledo are getting in
and working together for the ad
vancement of the town and county.
By their united efforts Toledo has
secured the erection of a new brick
depot, which is now in course of
construction, and which will be an
ornament to the town. The same
spirit is at work in the matter of
opening a road to the.Alsea valley.
This latter enterprise is of much
importance to not only Toledo, but
the people adjacent to the line of
road. And the road will be built
this summer loo. Toledo is iu earn
est and when her people set their
heads to do a tiling it is usually
done. The people of Alsea valley
and the settlements along the way
are equally anxious to have the
road opened and will assist to the
utmost of their ability. The road
to Alsea valley will be built.

Pursuant to a call the citizens of
Toledo met at the court house on
Monday, May 22, 1803. Came to
order at the call of the chairman
Wm. Alexander, who stated the
object of the meeting, viz: to hear
report of the committee appointed
to go over and see prospect for road
from Mac-key's point to Fall creek
They reported a good, reasonable
route from Yaquina to Fall creek,
a distance of 18 or 20 miles through
unsurveyed land. The route is
said to be better than the present
one from Toledo to Siletz.
On motion the same committee
was authorized to circulate and
present petition to county court
asking them to order the road stir

point to the mouth of Fall creek.

A. B. Maxwell has been named
by Judge Bellinger as the receiver
of the Oregon Development com
pany to take the place of R. A.
Bensell, of Newport, who was re
moved upon the petition of Blair &
Brown, of New York. It is claim
ed that Bensell was unduly under
the influence of the Hogg faction.
Mr. G. A. Waggoner was not al
together successful last year in rais
ing China pheasants. This season
he turned the business over to Mrs.
Waggoner whose efforts promise a
fair measure of success. She makes
use of an incubator and brooder.
A brood of 114 is now emerging
from the shell, and should the birds
thrive, Mrs. Waggoner will reap a
good reward for her pains as these
birds are in good demand at $10 a
pair. Corvallis Gazette.
There has been recorded a mort
gage of $100,000 by the Salem Con
solidated Street Railway Company
to the Northwest Loan and Trust
Company, of Portland, the instru
ment bearing date May nth and
to run six months from that time.
It covers all the property of the
street railway company iu Salem
and its suburbs powerhouse, ma
chinery, wires, tracks, franchises
and real estate. The note bears
interest at the rate of 8 per cent.
Under the head of "An Item of
News," the Democrat and the
Herald, of Albany, both cast con
sidcrable reflection upon lion. R.
A. Bensell, of Newport, with regard
to the Oregon Development receiv
erslup matter. As both papers
have identically the same article
with no credits given, it appears to
the casual observer that the article
might have been inspired in both
papers. Mr. Bensell might be un
der the influence of Col. Hogg,
and he might not, we don't know,
and we don't believe that the Her
aid or Democrat knows cither.
Mr. Bensell is regarded where he is
best known as an honorable, high
minded gentleman, and the attempt
to reflect upon him comes with bad

J. DeWitt Butts, of Ashland
some time ago advertised for sale
his farm seven miles south of that
city. The other day ho received a
letter from a Connecticut yankee
who wanted to buy. ihe writer
said he liked the place and location
from wdiat he had heard of it,- but
wiss too busy to come and see it
ju t now, and didn't have any
int ney that he could spare just at
piesent; but of Mr. Butts would
sell him the' place, and then just
hold it as security for the whole
price, ond would hire someone to
work it this season and harvest the
crops and pay all expenses, then he
would come out next fall ami make
a payment oij the place from the
proceeds of the crops. This was a
pretty close call for a sale, but Mr,
Butts still owns the lartn.

Portland had a periodical spasm
of "reform" in municipal affairs,
two years ago, and again last year,

held there and it would ' take the
finest kind of a raicrcscope to dis-

The Oregon Pacific is in the field
