Mrs. Edward Buxton.
After an illness of long dura
tion, Mrs. Edward Buxton died

home in this city of cancer of
the liver. The remains were
taken to Forest Grove for inter
ment on the afternoon train Sat
urday and the funeral occurred
from the Forest Grove Hotel at
10:30 Sunday morning.
The maid -n name of the de
ceased was Elizabeth Roderick,
and she was born March 8, 1852.
in Joliet, Will county, Illinois.
By her parents she was brought
across the plains the same year
to Oregon and located in Albany.
Ox team was the means of loco
motion on this long journey.
At Forest Grove, January 22,
1871, she was united in marriage
with Edward Buxton. As the
result of this union she became
the mother of four children:
Mrs. George A. Sloan, of Port
land : George ' Buxton, of Port
land: Miss Minnie Buxton, of
Portland, and Harry E. Buxton,
of Corvallis. The husband, all
the children, and one sister, Mrs.
Shepard, of Portland, were at
the bedside of the desceased dur
ing her last hours.
Mrs. Buxton was the second
eldest of a family of six children
and is survived by four of them.
Her father and mother are both
dead. All of the children of the de
ceased were born in Forest Grove
and for this and other reasons
interment was made there.
During life Mrs. Buxton was a
member of the Eastern Star, and
of the Order of Washington,
formerly the order of Lyons. She
was in every wav a good woman
and her splendid character en
deared her to a large circle ol
friends. The bereaved survivors

Perhaps the latest stand by
football adherents is the action
reported from Stanford, Friday.
It will be of interest to our local
players and is as follows:
The faculty athletic committee

Jordan on the condition of uni
On the subject of football re
form the committee submits as
its opinion that close formations
in plays should be abolished;
that the modern game had de
teriorated from a sport to a busi
ness, that the game is exclusive
since only men of heavy weight
can participate, and that the
game is no longer in any sense a
college sport, since students do
not organize volunteer teams to
play for the love of the game.
Dealing with the game of base
ball, the committee declares
"that baseball is on a distinctive
ly lower level than any other
college sport, both as regards the
spirit of amateurism and of cour
tesy and fairness of play."
In conclusion the committee
commends tennis, track work and
rowing to a more liberal partici
pation by students as being man

The Portland Market.
Beef cattle are still plentiful
and prices do not advance. A
good many hay-fed beeves are
coming in from various points in
the Northwest, but drovers who
expected higher prices early in
the Winter have been disappoint
ed. Range-fed stock has disap
peared from the market for the
season, and will not be tat enough
for slaughter until about the first
of June. Live stock men who
have fat cattle desire, of course,
to sell them off as early in the
season as possible. in order to
save their fodder, which may be
needed later on to tide trie range
stock over a snowy spell, in
regions east of the mountains.
Sheep and hogs are in good
demand, and the present high
prices rather incline to an ad
vance. Sheepraisers are not
willing to let their stock go to
the slaughter-house, because
wool promises to bring a good
price in the Spring, Hogs :

egg receipts are daily becoming
heavier, and that unless the cold

inclined to pile up both in the

cream scarce. Prices are likely

properties of the Company in the

to be taken will be to strike the

edge as opened on top shows 8

grade, and 100 feet more tunnel
will strike this" ledge at a depth
of more than 150 feet and will
undoubtedly show us an ore body
that is equal to the expectations
of the management of the Com
pany. After this work is com
pleted a site will be selected and
good buildings built and prepar
ations made for deeper work.
This property will be under
the management of able men
and the work done with a view
to economy and permanency.
The company have an office in
this citv. A limited amount ot
treasury stock has been put on
the market at five cents per share
or the purpose ot development.
The officers of this Company
serve without salary and will until
the company is put on a paying
basis. The property of the Com
pany consists of all claims, sit
uated three miles south of the
Music Mine in Bohemia. The
possibilities of the Company are
unlimited, as their charter allows
them to operate any place in the
state and to buy and sell stocks
as well as mines. Their atten

Under date of Tanuary 11, the
following dispatch, was sent from
Salem: .. : - '
- The Kelliher land iraud es
tablished the fact, judicially that
hundreds of certificates of sale
for Oregon school land. Were is
sued on fraudulent applications.
The Attorney-General has held
that, where a certificate of sale
has been issued in due form and
all the money demanded by the
state has been paid for the 'land,
if the state could locate any of
the certificates that have been ob
tained by fraud in the hands of
the original holders, they could
be cancelled, and the owners of
the certificates would have to
surrender their claim to title ot
the land, receiving back the
money which they had paid to
the state. The state is in a pe
culiar position regarding these
bogus applications. The officials
know that they were obtained by
fraud in the first place, but the
certificates of sale are genuine
and the state has received all the
money required under the law.
It is a mooted question of law
which will probably have to be
determined by the courts, wheth
er a third party, who happens
to own some of these certificates
of sale, can claim the ' rights of
an innocent purchaser.
