The modes of death's approach aro
various, and statistics show conclusive
ly that more people die from diseases
of the throat and lungs than any other.
It is probable that everyone without
exception, receives vast numbers of
tubercle germs into the system and
where thei-o germs fall upon suitablo
soil they start into life and develop, at
first slowly and is Hhown by a slight
tickling sensation in tho throat and if
allowed to continue (heir ravages they
extend to the lungs 'producing con
sumption and to the head; causing ca
tarrh. Now all this is dangerous and
if allowed to proceed will in time cause
death. At the onset you must act
with promptness; allowing a cold to go
without attention is dangerous and
uiav lofC you your life. As toon us
you feci that something is wrong with
your throat, lungs or nostrils, obtain u
bottlo of Boscheu'h German Syrup. It
will give you immediate relief.

l'ukllratlon of I'lnrxl Proof Xiitlcox
tlrnuf. lflstrlcl Lund OlUccrx.
Washington, 1). C.
EKiTott Okkrox Srtt)T:
The only law requiring the publica
tion of notice of intention to make
final proof is tlg) act of congress ap
proved March 3, IS7i) (20 Stat., -172),
and applies exclusively to homestead
and pre-emption entries.
Departmental regulations have been
promulgated requiring such publica
tion in desert-land and timber-culture
entries. I believe that there is no di
rect statutory authority for the institu
tion of such regulation in respect, to
such entries, but that it is claimed that
the authority is found in the teneral
provisions of law relating to the mak
ing of 'regulations necessary
to carry -
ing into ell'eot the laws governing dis
posals of public lands.
Under the law requiring tho publi
cation of notice in pre-emption and
homestead cases provision is made
that tho "register shnll publish a no
tice," etc., and in the legulations re
lating & said law it is provided that
"the filing of such notico must bo ac
companied by a deposit of sufficient
money to pay tho cost of publishing
tho notice to be given by tho register."
In such cases there can be no ques
tion but that the register is legally re
sponsible to the publisher for the
amount of publication fee. As the
affidavit of the publisher or foienmn
of the newspaper is necessary to show
that the law has been complied with,
publishers may usually enforce pay
ment of ther charges by refusing to
furnish such affidavit until payment
has been made for advertising. Occa
sionally, however, registers fail to re
quire the deposit mentioned, and order
tho advertising as usual; then the
cntryman fails to make proof aban
dons his claim perhaps and the reg
ister declines to pav the publisher.
In such case a judgment could no
doubt bo secured against the officer in
"the proper court of tho locality. In
fact I am of tho opinion tlmta register
of a land oilice is, like other people,
amenable to the laws, and liable for
the amounts of contracts entered into
by him, and when ho orders advertis
ing, without specialty stating that in
making such order he is merely acting
as tho agent of another, the giving by
him and execution by the publisher of
such order constitutes a contract un
der which payment of tho usual ad
vertising charge may be enforced by
legal process provided, of course, that
tho register has properly subject to
Certain publications are required
by law in-other ovisacs of entry. Un
der the Stono and Timber Act, appli
cable to Oregon, California, Nevada,
and Washington Territory, publication
is required in advance of entry. Un
der this law the district land officers
havo nothing to do with tho publica
tion of notice, further than to furnish
a. copy of the same to applicant, to bo
published at his own expense in tho
newspaper published nearest the loca
tion itho land. OfOcoure, registers
may, as a matter of accommodation to
tho applicant, forward (J'io notice to
tho publisher, but ho is not required
to do to by the statute, and such act
ion by him without disclosing tho fact
that ho is merely acting as thoagent
of tho entryman, would render him
legally liable for tho amount of tho
publication fees. The publishers can
protect themselves in those cased,
where tho applicants aro in good faith,
by demanding thoir advortuing fees
beforo furnishing tho ovidonco of pub
lication, whether the order bo given
by the register or by the applicant.
The remarks relativo to tho legal
liability of registnrs in the mattors
mentioned, aro bated on general busi
ness principles, and will bo mollified,
of coiirte, by tho usages of the localities
in which cases arise. . If publishers
have been acccepting orders for publi
cation in Timber aiid Stono Entries
from registers and looking (o appli
cants for compensation, and it has
been long understood that in giving
such orders the ofllcer has acted n
agent for applicants, of course, the
ofllcor would not bo liable for the
amount of publisher's torn.

EniTOR Orkgo.v Scout:
Senator Quay is the observed of all
observers, and his biilliant manage
ment nf tho republican campaign
places him away in front among party
loaders. His methods were prided by
hosts of people, but the cause is
1 judged by the effect, and his efforts
havo the sent of success, lie is now
in Washington, undoubtedly for tho
pnriioso of watching tho congressional
returns. The llotiso will bo desper
ately close, whichever party . wins, and
Quay does not desire his party to bo
left. Whilfl ho bus noounnotineed his
purposes, the conference between him,
Gen. Dudley and Gen. Mahone was
for tho purpose of ascertaining if Vir
ginia could not bo counted for the
republicans.- Thin would havo relieved
New York of i importance in the
electoral college, and cooled the ardor
of tho Now York politicians to own
tha earth. New York has controlled
tho last two administrations, and
would not be loth to rule another.
Tho big Now York conference will
pretty well fix the cabinet slate. Mr.
Quay will probably ask tho Postmaster
Cfeneralship for John Wananiakor.
California will probably demand a
place. Warner Mil'er's claims may
bo bitterly opposed by Levi P. Morton .
Their ill-feeling is of long standing,
and Morton's memory is still sound.
Western eondidate.s loom up. Alger,
Sherman, Forakor, old Governor Rusk,
and a dozen otbors are in tho fight.
McKinley is not regarded by his
friends here as in the raco. A cabinet
position is .considered as a burial for
presidential aspirants, and McKinley
has a long head.
Politicians now at tho Capitol aro
talking of an extra session Of congress,
to bo called very poon after Mr. Uar-
iuauguratipn. Tho expecta -
tion of the passage of a tariff bill dur
ing the coming winter is decreasing.
Tho work of prepaiing legislation of
that sort is a matter of vexatious detail
and dragging debates, and oven with
tho extra hession, over a ygir would bo
likely to olapso beforo a now tariff bill
would bo on tho Btatuto books. A
spring session would at least give tho
new House an opportunity to deeido
its membership, effect organization,
and bo in shape to got quickly at work
and receive important committee re
ports early in tho following Decemlx'r.
Lawyers aro greatly inteiested in the
decision of (' United States supremo
court, rendered by Justice Harlan, do-
nying tho writ of habeas corpus in tho
case of Judge Terry, now in jail in
San Francisco for contempt of tho
United States circuit -court. Terry
knocked down tho marshal and drew a
knife in opon court. His attorneys
contend that tho order was irregular
as it wan mado in llio appoalant's ab
souce, und without previous notico of
the court's intentions, and without
any ohaneo being given him to bo
heard in his defense Justice Harlan,
after eluboratoly reviewing tho caso,
concluded that the jurisdiction of the
court attached the moment tho con
tempt was committed, and that, being
committed in tho presence of tho
court, the contempt admitted of no
defense and forfeited right to defense,
The Sioux commission, which has

gest that whilo he Ouis his hat off ho
take off the black band, and when ho
puts it on again' it will be a Harrison
hat. It is only changing the black for
a white band, and white has always
been regarded as an emblem of purity,
hence no one should object to wearing
white. However, this is only a sug
gestion as the boy told his father
there is nothing binding about it.
I also f-eo by your paper that the
street, committee of Union asked "fur
ther time" in regard to lixflg up tho
city buildings. Now 1 think it is very
commendable in the council to allow
an extension of time to arrange for tho
lepairing of tho city buildings. Any
thing done too hurridly is very liable
to bo done wrong. I trust, however,
they will not move the buildings again.

The news comes from Canyon Gily
that.l.T. Muel, Grant 'county's p'asb
offieiont dork, attempted suicide, Mon
day, by taking a doso 'of morphine,
while laboring undor a fit of despond
ency over financial troubles and em
barrassment, but tho act was discover
ed in time and his Jn'u saved. It ap
pears that of Into he has con drink
ing heavily and besides had been liv
ing beyond his means. On tho result
of tho last election he hud wagered
largo sums of monoy and the result
was disastrous o him. To mako
things appear all right to tho public
ho converted to his own use monoy
belonging to tho county, forgetting
that a day of settlement would como
soonor or later and ho would havo to
give n full account of tho shortages in
tho county's finances. Upon the heels
of his election losses came the opening
of tho circuit court for Grant county,
and upon an examination of the books
in tho cerk's oflico it was found that
Mael was somewhere in tho neighbor
hood of .$2100 behind with the cotipty.
Ah soon as Muel was made aware that
his disjioncsty had been discovered
his heart failed him und ho attempted
to take his own life, but failing, ten
dered his rcsiguatiod at onco to tho
court us county clerk and handed him
self over to his bondsmen. Tho court
appointed Hon. Phil. Metchun to fill
the unexpired term and that gentle
man ussumed tho duties of tho oflicc.
