A Plam Calamity Caused By the
SUED BECAUSE THEY ARE DEAD
Hopkins and Crocker Sued by the
Will Come Next.
Suit Will Be Brought.
San Fraxcisco, June 14. The Chron
icle has a special from Washington
which says the United States will bring
suit for $15,000,000 each against the
Crocker and Hopkins estates for the
recovery cf the debt owed by them to
the government, as stockholders in the
Central Pacific Railroad company.
Olney has placed the whole matter of
governmental action with reference to
the Central Pacific railroad's debt in the
hands of Assistant Attorney-General
Russell. Though- Olney is friendly to
the railroad corporations of the country,
and has confessed no faith in such pro
ceedings, he finds himself compelled, by
the pressure brought to bear by th
president and other members of ti.e
cabinet, to carry out the plan of suing
tne stockholders of the Central Pacific.
as has been urged upon him for some
time past. He prefers therefore to place
the responsibility for a course for which

Hermann, eulogizing his work in con

whether Hermann is a candidate or not
and Herman says he knows nothing
aoout it ; that he has given no consider

nothing about the preferences of the
various members, or even how many
representatives have been elected to the

Hermann being chairman of the com

Salmon Receipts Light.
. Astoria, June 14. The freshet and a
lew days of rough weather have been in
strumental in aeain making mlmnn
receipts light, and the boats for several
days past have not averaged' more than
seven fish each. The largest hauls are
almost invariably taken close to the
breakers at Sand island, and in the
shallow water alongside the jetty, but
fishing at these points is exceedingly
dangerous, unless the water is calm. A

Louisville, June 14. Regarding the
story from Lexington yesterday, Gen

tacitly understood that Major Mowell
would make the race for congress in the
Ashland district, should Breckinridse I
be renominated. He told Maior Mc-
Dowell that he ought not to run as a re
publican, but as a non-partisan. The
major took the same view, adding he
had become partially reconciled to the
plan of making the race as tbe repre
sentative of those who believe Breckin
ridge's own confession should cause the

ASTORIA. June 14. Residents on
Clatsop beach ssjy that the supply of
ciams is likeiv to be almost exhausted
in the course of a few weeks, on account
of the vast volume of fresh water which
is rushing down the Columbia. Already
they are becoming scarce, and what
have been dug during the past few days
are very poor. After the great flood of
1876, similar conditions were noticeable.
and the supply was light for over a year I
afterward. ; .

Deafness Cannot be Cared
By local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portionjof tbe ear.
There is only one way to cure Deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube ceta
inflamed you have a rumbling sound or
im perfect hearine. and when it is entirely
closed Deafness is the result, and unless
the inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (.caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars, free.
