grave one for Albany, and one it

bridge may be the best way out of
it, and that may not be a success
as it will probably involve the city
in expensive litigation. Many of
the citizens of Benton county sub.
scribed and paid liberally to the
construction of the bridge on the
condition that Linn county should
maintain a free bridge. The county
was let oil by the city on paying
gross sum of $40,000. The question
now is, can the city change this
without the consent of all parties?

LACK Of APPRECIATION.
An Unfortunate Habit Into Which The
People of Orcsoti Have Fallen.
To the 2iroR Gazette:
The agitation in iavor of reduc
ing the South's representation in
congress as a punishment for
suppressing the negro vote ended,
naturally, in smoke. Practical
republicans admit that the great
republican mistake was the fif
teenth amesdmeat and recent
legislation limiting suffrage,
adopted by several Southern
states would be enforced in
Northern commonwealths were
conditions there similar, ,
Several Northern States have
now educational or property lim
itations or both and the tendency
is toward restriction rather than
toward liberality. Sober stu
dents predict a' general limiting
of the suffrage, in the selection
of legislative officers to actual
taxpayers, regardless of sex. In I
voting for administrative and I
judicial officers the test, they say,
will be sex and education. There
will thus be a patriotic reward
for thrift, and the improvident
will not be able by then ballots
to waste 'the accumulations of
Senator Doloh ones remarked
to Editor Lighter, of Astoria.
that a constant source of disap
pointment to him was the lack
of personal evidences, of -appreciation
from his home people
when, after perhaps a long hard
fight, he accomplished some
thing favorable to their interests.
Not a telegram of congratula
tions, not a letter " of thanks-.
The victories were often hardly
won; sometimes gained by un
imagined sacrifices, Senators
and congressmen are human and
a "thank you" from those tbey
are trying to serve is often ap
preciated as ' much as a re-election
would be, aid gives heart
for renewed exertion. It is un
fortunate for Oregon that her
people are falling into the hurt
ful habit of criticizing and fault
finding' her . representatives "at
Washington out of office as soon
as they begin to gain committee
experience and legislative" power.
It has-been very difficult to. see
Mr. Tongue lately, for he has
been constantly busy day and
night, as a member of the river
and harbor committee, - and a
study of the bill as presented by
the committee will show that
his efforts in behalf of Oregon
have - been phenomenally suc
cessful. Yet, when I pressed
him the other day for informa
tion concerning' the manner in
which Oregon people received
the news, lie reluctantly admit
ted that he had only received
messages of congratulation from
Corvallis for the liberal allow
ance for the revetment near
there. Judge Burnett, and I
believe some others, wrote him
personally.. Later, other places
voiced their commendation, but
Portland well, we all know
The Oregonian not only failed
t give Mr. Tongue credit, but
actually said that the" results
were due to the action of the
members from Wasbington, in
spite of the fact that not one
man of the Washington or Idaho
delegations aided in the slight
est degree a single Oregon pro
ject mentioned in the bill as
presented by the committee.
The injustice to Mr. Tongue is
the grosser because the great
bulk of the appropriations
secured for Oregon are for the
second district. The whole
state, it is true, will be benefitted
by the improvement of the Co
lumbia bar, but broadmindedness
merits more than misrepretation
and blame. H, L,. H.OI.GATE.

Mrs Mary Smith now lies at the
home of her son, Jobn Smith, in
this city.' Wednesday of last
week she was stricken with pneu
monia. The best medical skill
and loving attention were of no
avail, and dissolution came Mon
day night at ten o'clock.
Mary,- daughter of John and
Elizabeth Baker, was born March
4, 1829. in Cumberland county,
Tennessee. Together with her
parents, she moved .from that
state to Missouri in 1843, and
three years later all the members
of the family began that weary
journey to the Pacific coast Cal
ifornia was reached in the autumn
of that year, and the train moved
on to Oregon under the guidance
of Capt. Lindsey. Applegate, be
ing the first to enter the western
portion of this state .through the
Rogue river country. Passing
tbe spot where the city of Eugene
now stands, they found the pio
neer resident," Mr.-Skinner, lay
ing the foundation for .his log
house, the first building erected
oii the site of the present county
seat ot L,ane.. Marys river was
crossed by swimming, January
15, 1847, and the party discov
ered the first residence seen by
them since taking the plains.
It was the log hut of the late J.
C. .Avery, standing upon the site
of the present Avery residence.
The journey was. continued into
Polk county, where the winter
was spent on the place of J, W.
Nesmith. In . the autumn of
1847, Mr. Baker filed on a dona
tion claim six miles south of
Corvallis, and immediately occu
pied it with his family.
Green Berry Smith met and
won Mary Baker, and their mar
riage occurred in 1849. Mr.
and Mrs. Smith soon filed the
donation land; claim of 640 acres
twelve miles north of this city,
and here they resided until 1862,
when they moved to Corvallis.
Four years later they removed
to the farm four miles south of
Corvallis, not returning here un
til 1 883. " Upon the death of her
husband in , 1886, Mrs. Smith re
tained a large share of the vast
property he had amassed:"-

an inorease in gambling and fre

." A Sudden Death..
J. L. Clegg, a veteran of tt;
civil war, and a resident of -Coi ';
vallis for the "", past four, months,
died Thursday morning at 6 o'clock
in his room at the residence of Geo.
W. Smith after a very short illness.
Tuesday evening he appeared in
his U8Ual hsaltb: retirinc at. O
o clock. Mr. Smith' heard him
tossing in his bed during the night,
but thought little of it. Wednes
day afternoon S T Kerr had occa
sion to visit hiD room1 and "found
him in a state of stupor, .His
efforts failed to arouse Clegg, and
Charley Young, a friend of the
deceased was sent for. The sick
man recognized Mr. Young and
said,"Is that you, Charley?" the last
words he ever spoke. -a Dr. Pernot
was summoned, but his efforts were
unavailing. fThe immediate cause
of deathjwas paraylsis, due to uranic
poisoning. - ' - ;
Clegg saw service in many, im
portant engagements of the civil
war, being a member of Co C 4th
Illinois Cavalry. He served for a
time as dispatcher for Gen. Grant.
He. was employed for many years
as a railway conductor. Of recent
years he has lived with his wife and
step-son at Elk City. These rela
tives now reside in Idaho. The
deceased was about sixty years of
age. The funeral will oceur this
morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. F. L.
Moore, officiating. Intermeut will
take place at Crystal Lake cemetery
under the auspices of the GAR.
Last Friday was the 43rd anni
versary of the birthday of John T.
Hurlburt, arid he was agreeably re
minded of that fact ; when a bevy of
young people forced an entrance to

evening of ;that day.- They were
abundantly supplied- with refresh
ments, and had arranged a program
of entertainment, which made the'
occasion a delightful one. ' Mr.
Hurlburt was completely surprised,
but soon regained composure and
Joined heartily in the merriment.
