Convicted of Manslaughter. The
trial of E. W. James for the accidental shoot
mg of Mrs. Julia A. Newton, of Albina, Feb.
10 last was held before Judge Stearns Thurs
day. All there was in the evidence was that
James w as fooling with a rifle, didn't know it
was loaded, pointed it towards Mrs. Newton,
when it was accidentally discharged and
killed her. James was present in court with
his wife and child and fcia mother-in-law. He
was defended by John F. Copies, the prosecu-
lion being condncted by District Attorney
McGinn. The case was given to the jury at
5 o'clock, and . after a deliberation of twenty
minutes they came in with a verdict of guilty
A motion for a new trial was made.
Game Law Unchanged. There seems to
be an impression abroad that the last legisla
ture amended or repealed the game law. Such,
however, is not the case. A bill to repeal the
act protecting the Mongolian pheasants passed
the senate and another bill allowing deer to be
hunted with hounds and otherwise amending
the game law passed the house, but neither of
them passed both houses, and so neither be
came a law. It is sai l the great anxiety
evinced in some quarters to destroy the pheas
a, its arose from an idea that their skins would
sell we'd to milliners for ornamenting ladies
hits. A full grown pheasant would make a
fine large ornament, and if perched on the
crown of one of the tall hats now fashionable
woT give the wearer a decided pre-eminence
over less fortunate people who could only af
ford a duck or a bobtailed rooster.

The president replied, in substance, that in

for these aad other reasons he felt it to be his

Rosedukg, Or. March 17th, 1SS7.
Editor Roselurg Review: By your
permission I will notice briefly some of the
arguments in your last week's issue under the
healing of the "Deer Creek Letter." Mr.
Ger.ger asserts that the amendment is uncon
stitutional, he quotes a line from the Declar
ation of Independence, I will quote a few
more lines as it may be of some interest to
the reader. "We hold these truths to be self
evident; that all men are created equal, that
they arc endowed by their Creator with cer
tain inalienable rights, that among these arc
life, liberty an I the pursuits of h.i;pine?s."
Mr. Genger, no man has a right to do wrong;
it is the right of the true American citizen to
do good to all men a'nd mankind, and as little
harm as possible. L.t universal justice be
emblazoned on our baiyiers and teach the peo
ple to distinguish thef means by which the
most happiness may be procured to the great
est, number, and in proportion as the mass of
the people become enhghted in truthful prin
ciples; they will be capable of solving all ques
tions that relate to our happiness and interest.
You say the amendment takes away your
rights. Wc arc supposed to be a republican
government in form, if that is true, we have a
right to vo'.c on this amendment and if it car
ries, it's the voica of the people and no good
American citizen will say a word against it,
but will do all in his power to help enforce it,
and if we prolns lose, with all our faults, will
not say you are taking our rights away. How
is it that the legislature has passed a law to
prohibit people from murdering? They are
taking away your rights. Why do they leg
islate against thieves and everything that is
morally wrong? They ought not to for it is
taking away the rights of the American peo
p!e. ; I am glad that the people are waking up
and are not afraid to discuss this important
question, for free discussion is the strong
est scepter against error and despot
ism. Theraare many sides to this question;
what will convince -one person will have no
effect on others, but there is something that
will convince every person that the use of
liquor as a beverage is not right or just
when the right time comes. You say intoxi
cants came into use at a very early period, that
is true and has failed to be of any benefit to
mankind, and has been the cause directly or
indirectly of half the crimes that are commit -ted.
S would it not be wise in a nation to
try and progress out of such unhappy condi
tions? If a drunkard reforms no man will
diibt but what he is a better man than he
in his fallen slate. Well my friend it Is
ilv; same with a nal ion, let U3 !rivc liquor out
of 'our land for one generation, and no man
would want it back. You say the preachers
ai:d the gospel have failed to reform the world.
They have their part of the work, but have
failed to reach such men as you, bul prohibi-
tba will catchjyou. You say people nowa-
days are better than our Savior; would just
say that anyone that lias sacrificed everything
tliat is good,' just and holy to a pcrversed ap
petite is not capable of judging a moral ques
tion, I am glad that the world has found out
that people gH funny on the wme that Christ
made. Would say by way of ' encouragement
to you that no person will ever object to your
drinking wine that is made out of water alone;
so drink it and realize that temperance is the
straight and narrow way that leads to all men
tal happincs and that they who act thr jugh
principle, feel God in the form of truth and
justice in their souls and can never be con
quered. Wj B. Taylor.
An Impressive Scene.
.... ! ".
Eosebu kg, March 14.
Hearing there was to be a burial service
performed in the graveyard over the hill this
mnrning, I took this, my first; opportunity of
witnessing such a scene in this country. It
was a very touching sight. The subject was
child about fifteen months old, it was put in
a casket covered with blue velvet attached
with plated nails, the lids beiug fixed on by
thumscrews. The parents having experienced
much trouble, three or four men undertook to
lig the grave gratis thus expressing their sym
pathy. The corpse and mourners were con.
veyed to the place in two wagons, the minis
ter following on foot, as they reached the
grayeyird they alighted and assembled around
the grave. Two chairs were brought from a
neighboring house and placed to receive the
little casket which was then taken fr m the
w agon and laced thereon. The lid was un
screwed and slipped far enough back to ex
pose the little wax like face, a piece of muslin
which had lain over it was . tenderly drawn
back by the gentle hand of some sympathetic
friend. The mother supported by her hus
band, approached, bent over and imprinted
the last fond kiss on its cold unfeeling brow
and was led back to a scat overwhelmed with
grief at her loss. The muslin was again re
placed by the same gentle hand, the lid
slipped in its place and screwed on, the minis
ter then announced the name and age of the
child, stating the day hour and minute of its
decease, a few verses were then read from the
fourth chapter of Paul's first epistle to the
Thcssalonians, which was followed by an ap
propriate and earnest address, a hymn and
prayer, the casket was then lowered into the
grave and covered in, another hymn "The
Sweet Bye and Bye," was then sung, the ben
ediction followed which closed the solemn and
impressive scene. j II. V.

Died March 6th, 1SS7, Sally G. Stephens
of Douglas county Oregon, daughter of Jcptha
ani .Martha K. ihornton, aged 44 years 4
months ami 19 days. Her disease was con
sumption together with the turn of life. She
muiigrated to Oregon from Missouri with her
parents in the year 1S65 and was united in
marriage with Wm. R. Stephens of Yamhill
county Oregon the nth day of November,
1S66. She united with the regular Baptist
church, called the Oak Creek church Douglas
county Oregon Saturday before the 1st Sunday
in June 18S0 having professed a hope in Christ
several years previous. She lived a worthy
member in the Oak Creek church until her
death. She was much beloved bv all who
knew her. She was sound in the faith of the
primitive Baptist 'salvation by crarj- and ciace
alone, consistent and orderly in her walk, leav
ing an evidence that there is a divine reality
in the religion of Jesus Christ. She leaves an
afilicted husband (subjee to asthma) and four
children father and mother brothers and sisters
to mourn their loss, but we do not mourn as
those that have no hope for we believe that
our loss is her eternal gain. She was sensible
to the last bidding her husband and children
farewell, her faith that had braced her up
throught her religious life did not forsake her
in death. She died in full assurance of heaven
and immortal glory, niiy we all be prepared to
die the death of the righteous. Her body was
laid in the graveyard on Oak Creek there to
await the judgment day.
.1 Genial Restoratire.
Hostctler's Stomach Bitters are emphatically
a genial restorative. The changes which this
great liotanic remedy produces in the disord
cred organization are always agreeably, though
surely progressive, never abrupt and violent .
On this account it is admirably adapted to per
sons of delicate constitution and weak nerves,
to whom the powerful mineral drugs are posi'
lively injurious. That it initiates those proces'
ses which result in the re-cstablishment of
healthful vigor is conspicuously shown in cases
where it is taken to overcome that fruitful cause
of debility, indigention, coupled, as it usually
is, with uiaousness ana constipation.
Thorough digestion, regular evacuation and
abundant secretion, are results which promptly
and invariably attend its systematic use. It is,
besides, the he protective against malaria, and
I a first rate diuretic
We have a city marshall here
With a star upon his breast,
And when a rough gets full of beer,
He'll take him to his rest.
And when he collects the taxes,
From residents of this town,
lie curious questions asks
What every one doth own.
And when a drunk on sidewalk sleeps,
His eyes are quick and sure,
He slyly to his prey creeps
And puts him through the door."
And if a fellow shows fight you bet
Our marshal will be on it;
He makes his prisoners soon to fret,
For he'll hit him on bis bonnet.
And when at night the citizens sleep,
All in their downy cots,
He may be in snow ten feet deep,
A looking out for sals.
Or if a fire breaks out you know
He'll loudly ring the bell ;
Or if a gale should begin to blow.
And it happens a sign has fell
I le'U break the news next morning,
To the man that owns that sign
And he, all expenses scorning.
Will ask him to etay and dine.
And when election hot is held.
In city precinct gay,
You'll see many an opponent felled
On next election day.
Success to wearer of Star and Slick
That walks about so freely,
If he ever should get sick,
He'll die like Horace Grcely,
And then he'll go away above
Where no criminals wages war,
And where no person they e'er shove,
The victims of a star.

Editor Review: In your issue 04 March
4th, your Oakland correspondent "Duplex"
did me a great injustice by stating that the
company which assembled at the residence of
Mr. John Bccklcy to pay mc a visit before I
returned to Elkton, spent the evening in card-
playing, eating popcorn, apples etc. I wish
it ditlinctly understood that I do not indulge
in card playing: nor was card playing indulged
in by the company on the occasion refered to
by your correspondent.
