A NEGRO'S APPEAL.
Wheeling. W. Va., Sept. 23 Yester
day was a great day with the colored peo
pie ot Martin Ferry, Ohio, the occaison
bein'' the celebration of Emancipation
Day. Professor Henry Lee, of Oberlio,
Ohio, was the principal orator. In speak
ing of Southern outrages lit: s&id among
other things: ''I say that if the outrages
done oar people iu the S"Uili be not pre
vented by the strong arm or the admin
istration nor disapproved by a word of
condemnation from the party of our
choice, that ihe colored man's devotion
to the party of the present administration,
the long suffering and forbearance of
our people may be changed to hate, and
striking out in self-defense in some other
quarter. It is agreeable Ior us to abide
with the party ot the present administra
tion, but if we are driven from it iy the
utmost neglect and dssregaid of our own
rights, and by the basest ingratitude, the
blame will not be our. I have much
hope for our people although clouds are
toweling around us."

THE LONDON STRIKE.
New York, Sept. 23 Speaking of the
result and effect of the great London
strike, Henry George said: "The strike
was a success, but mat does not solve the
labor, nor pretend to, ouly in this much,
that it awakens the popular mind to the
c.onrlition of affairs and makes all look
lor some real remedy. John Burn", a
noble man, who handled this strike like
a general, is a socialist. He is a working
man self educated, with a great personal
force and an unselfish purpose. He sees
li at the strike can never Eoive the great
labor problem of the age and so he relies
on promises aud delusive hopes of socia
lise as h's remedy, and if the single tax
idea is rtjected bis remedy, it seems to
me, is only an alternative result of the
s'-r.ke. The strike certainly was encour
agement to the dissttibtied and I am
greatly mistaken it it does not tend to
strengthen the strke spirit both in Eng
land aad America."

lynch law of Alonzo Edwards and bis wife
at Rosalia, tor tho alleged murder of
Henry Bloomer's 3 year old cnild, as de
tailed in these dispatches Saturday night,
are of the most revolting character, and
reveals a story of inhuman treatment sel
dom met witli even on the border.
The "child, it appears, was left iu the
care of Mr. and Mrs Edwards, while
Bloomer and his wife went to work in the
fields, last Tuesday. That evening the
child was missing and a search by the
neighbors Wednesday and Thursday
fai'ed, revealing no trace of its where
Friday night the prisoners were placed
in the jail here. From that time until
this morning a mob, varying from 500 to
1500, has continually surrounded the jail,
clamcring for the lives of the accused,
but the sheriff kept them at buy. Early
this morning the child was found alive
and well, sitting on the door step of a
farmer near Rosalia, where it had been
all the time. It is a mystery. It is sup
posed that it was kidnapped and returned
when it was learned what excitement its
disappearance was causing. Mr. and Mrs
Edwards" have been released. They are
still suffering from the effects of the harsh
treatment received, and an attempt will
be laade to prosecute the leaders of the

his decision, savs: ''It is clear there is
an apparent conflict it. ji-.dicial opinions
as to the effect of certaiu school sections
being within Indian reservations at the
time of the taking effect of the grant. I
think Ihe weight of oi.inion is that a res
erration for Iudians is a disposal of land
in the meaning of the act. Whether I am
i ;ht or no? on this point, I feel safe in
following the opinion of t lie secretary of
the inierior in ihe Colorado case. The
facts in that case are similar to these, and
I therefore revoke the decision of Febru
ary 23, 1SS9, and hold that the state ot
Oregon has aright to select indemnity for
school sections, lying within the Siletz
and Grande Ronde Indian reservations.
As for all other questions touching selec
tions and lists, they are reserved for pro
per action under the law when the lists
come before the department for approval.
This decision is regarded as important,
as it will govern in all similar cases, of
which there is a large number in different
parts of the west.

Tho story of a queer fiud comes from
Idaho: Mr. Benson, a dairyman, who has
resided in Ketchum for the last two or three
years, has an old wagon which he bought
eight years ago in Boise City. The wagon
has been in use nearly ail the time ever
8i nee. One day last June Mr. Benson was
going over the summit with his wagon wlen
something broke. In examining the wagon
he found a piece of tin which bad been
tacked on had come loose, and in talcing the
tin off two bars of gold dropped out. It
appears that a hole had been cut in the
wood, the bars placed in this prepared space
and the tin tacked on to cover it up. Mr.
Beuson sold the two bars of gold for $1700.
Mr. Benson formerly resiJed in or near
Boise City, but who the man is that eon
verted bis wagon into a portable safe will
very likely never be known.
The first locomotive engine constructed
in the United States was built by a native
of New York, the late Peter Cooper, in
1830, at his Canton iron works, near Balti
more. It was made from his own designs
and was named "Tom Thumb." It was a
very small tractor engine too small for
practical use. On a trial trip it drew a car
with several Ealtimoreans in it from Balti
more to the Relay Houre, a distance of nine
miles. Excltange. This is a mistake.
Father Harmarf, who is now 85 years old,
and is confined to his rooms by the infirmi

with the first locomotive engine ever
brought to this country, which was made
after the pattern of the one then in use in
England and manufactured by the Stephen
son Bros. Father Harman put the locomo
tive together in New York, and this was
used as a pattern for many others.
Pendleton Tribune: The trial jury very
promptly acquitted Officer Durham, who
was charged with assault with a dangerous
weapon upon the person of a tramp. In
the early summer Pendleton was infested
with hobos, and their depredations were
quite numerous. About the middle of Juiy
Durham found a party one night where they
had no business to be, and were acting very
suspiciously. He undertook to arrest them
in the name of the majesty of the law.
They tried to escape; he tired and one was
winged. For this the officer was arrested
and the grand jury indicted him. He was
defended by Hon. J.C. Lcasure and prompt
ly acquitted. The Bj-mpathy of the com
munity had been with Durham all through
the trial. There was a feeling that the
genus hobo muit he dealt harshly with, or
the community must suffer the consequen
ces., Durham is an efficient officer, and the
people propose to hold up his ji anils.

As an instance of their tyranny with
respect to forcing a man to board in the
mess-house, I will rehearse ttie following
story: A man nt present working here hud
taken up a ranch and placed his family,
consisting of a wife nnd two children,
upon it while he worked here. One of
the family, a young girl, was very sickly
when living on the homestead, but imme
diately changed for the better upon re
moval to this place. The man wanted to
bold his land but he hud to work. He
left the wife and son lo remain nt the
home and thought to keep the little girl
here for her health's sake, the two intend
ing to keep house together; but they
hounded him into the mess-house, and he
was lorced lo ship the child home, where
she died a few weeks later. This is writ

The "Floor Matter.'
Boyd, Or., Sept. 21, 1SS9.
Eutos TiMSS-Moi ntaisbie:
The farmers' meeting held by the Wasco
county farmers at Union schoolhouse Sept.
21, 1889, adopted the following in answer
to the Wasco Sun's "Flour Matter":
We see an editorial in the Wasco Sun of
September 11th, entitled "The Flour Mat
ter," and had it not placed the whole mat
ter in so false a light we would have let it
pass in silence; hence we give the other side
to the public. To explain the reason for
our action in this matter we will say, that
the average farmer has this year lost at
least $15C0 each in farm products, luch as
grain, bay, vegetables, pasture, fruit trees
and shrubbery. There are 800 or more
farmers who draw their supplies from The
Dalles; this would aggregate a loss to this
number of farmers of over $1,000,000. Now
we have been accustomed to getting our
flour by exchange, and thus in exchanging
onr wheat for onr flour it has cost us from
$2.90 to $3.50 per barrel. But now that we
are dronth-stricken and down, the combina
tion of the Diamond Mills aud some ot (he
merchants have concluded to put their foot
on us to tho tune of $4 to $4.25 per barrel
for our flour. We have not asked any to
gie us a cent, but we have asked that the
Diamond Mills sell us flour and feed on the
same terms that others buy it
In regard to the matter of short weight
of the Diamond flour we have but little to
say only we know that what has been pub
lished is true, and that we have the corrob
ative evidence of Mr. Curtis which places
the editor of the Suit in an unenviable posi
tion before the public aa a swift and willing
witness for a little trust. Numbers of our
farmers have asked at the Diamond Mills to
buy fluur and feed but have been told by
Mr. Curtis that he had nothing to do with
the oianagsmeut of the mill, but that Mr.
Schmidt had charge of the whole affair rnd
had contracted all of the proceeds to some
of the merchants. So wo tee that Mr. Cur
tis bad no more to do in iruiiaging the null,
or fixing the scales to weigh the flour than
we had; and right here comes in the blame
of Mr. Curtis iu putting bis name to an
apology for short weight in the fluur when
he neither knew, or it was his business to
know, anything about the matter. Schmidt
is the man that must know exactly w hat
tho flour we-phed. The farmers nre not
after Mr. Cuitfs or his business (when prop
erly managed) or The Dal'es, for Mr. Cur
tis is one of us and The Dalles is our
creature, for some of our money is in every
brick that is laid there, end we feel too
much pride in the growth of The Dalles to
injure it ourselyes or let others by forming
trusts there to drive business away.

At St. Mary's hospital, on Tuesday morn
ing at 5 o'clock, W. I. Graham died frcm
injuries received on July 2Gth, near Riparia.
He was in his thirty-fifth year. This is a
particularly sad death, the result of an ac
cident caused by the malice of trampr. Mr.
Graham, who has been an engineer in the
employ of the O. R, & N. company, bad
been promoted but a short time to a passen
ger train, and in December, 1888, nad been
married. He was highly thought of by the
officers of the company and was a general
favorite with his fellow employes. The
accident, of which be was the role victim,

Farmington was late on leaving Riparia,
and was running at a high rate of speed,
along Snake river, about three miles this
side of Riparia, when suddenly the engine
ran into a ravine about 20 feet wide and 15
feet deep, the bridge over it haying been
burned ly tramps. The fireman was thrown
back on the roof of the baggage car while
the tender piled up on top of the engine cab.
Poor Graham, however, was caught by a
broken rod and pressed close against the
boiler, where for two long hours he lay,
slowly scalded by the escaping steam, bo
fore his comrades could release him. Dur
ing this long interval he was reported to
have maintained a brave front, and with
words of cheer endeavored to persuade those
working to release h:m, that he was not
much hurt. He was brought to St. Mary's
hospital, and everything possible done to
aid his recovery, but the fearful injuries he
had sustained were too great, and W. I.
Graham, a favorite with everyone who knew
him, died after a brave struggle for life.

About 9 o'clock Tuesday morning Mrs.
E. W. Croup, living nearly opposite the
ladies' hall of Whitman College, was called
to the door by a knock, and was con
fronted with a tongh looking character, who
requested a drink of water which she gave
bim, and after he had drank took the tum
bler aud entered the house again. After
putting tho glass down she turned to be
coufronted by the tramp who bad followed
her in. He immediately grabbed her by
the throat, and raising his clenched fist said
that if she tried to scream he would kill
her.accompanying his words with the vilest
Iangauge. The lady, half strangled bv the
pressure of his clasped fingers, managed to
give a half articulate scream which fortu
nately was loud enough to be heard bv a
young man named Pierce, who roomed up
stairs, and who on hearing the cry came
running down stairs. Tho tramp hearing
his footstep, released his hold on Mrs.
Croup and ran away in the direction of wal
nut groye. fierce followed him for a time,
but was unable to overtake bun. and in tho
excitement forgetting to give the alarm by a
call when the neighbors might have come
to his assistance. Seeing that the tramp
was too fast a runner, Pierce came down

pany with Officer McClees made a thorough
search of that portion of the city, but with
out success. Meu are still on the lookout

A Married Blaa la Tie ill.
The Grant County ATetr says that Ren-
ben Fields, who obtained a divorce from his
spouse, is now in trouble. His testimony
before Judge Ison wss to the effeot that the
woman be had married had a living husband
already unknown to him, from whom she
had not been divorced. Upon these grounds
her marriage with Reuben was declared off,
and the grand jury begau an investigation
of the case with a view of indicting the
woman for bigamy. Mr. Fields was called
upon to testify before that body, and "as a
sheep before her shearers ia dumb so ho
opened not his mouth." Judge Ison had a
bench warrant issued tor mm, and on h:i
appearance before him inquired why he had
refused to testify before the grand jury.
Reuben said that the evidence he had pre
viously given in the suit was made in con-
fideoce, an-" by answering questions before
the grand jury he feared he might criminate
himself. The judge informed him of the
penalty attending a refusal to testify, but
Reuben declared that be had given all the
testimony that he intended to give. Sea
tence was then declared that he be impris

A Day of Aeeldeat .
Last Sunday, while a rodeo crowd was
driving a bunch of cattle to Lou Hodges
corral on Bear creek, three accidents oc
curred which resulted seriously to as many
persons. The first occurred to a young
man named Moore, recently from Lane
county. His horse fell with him, and the
fellow's collar bono was broken and his
shoulder more or less injured. A little
while after another horse tell, throwing his
rider, a boy, who herded saddle horses for
Logan. The boy was bruised np generally
though no bones were broken. A little
later on Buck Hinton "lassed" a calf. In
the straggle that . ensued his riata broke,
the rope rebounding and striking Buck
with terrific torce in the face, cutting the
