Midxibht i o no midsummer tune
The breakes lash the shores:
The cuckoo of a joyless June
Is calling out-of-doors:
And thou hast vanlsh'd from thine own
To that which looks like rest,
True brother, only to be known -
By those who lore thee best.
' ' n
Midnight an 1 joyless June gone by.
And from the deluged park
The cuckoo of a worse July
Is calling thro the dark :
But thou art sBent underground.
" And o'er thee streams the rain,
. True poet, suiely to be found
When Truth is found again.
And, now to these unsummer'd skies
- The summer bird is still,
Far off a phantom cuckoo cries
From out a phantom hill ;
And thro' this midnight breaks the sun
Of sixty years away,
The light of days when life begun,
' The days tfcat seem to-day.
When all my griefs were shared with thee,
And all my hopes were thine
As all thou wert was one with me,
Hay all thou art be mine ! .

Edltort Leader :
In the Pendleton Tribune of Oct. 22d,
I have read au editorial in which the
editor laments (?) over the defeat of divis
ion of Umatilla county. He speaks of
H. B. No. 52, and then says, "If division
is desirable at all this bill should in our
opinion have been passed" "It was a
fair and just division."
Mr. editor, I have carefully read H.
B. No. 52, and also H. B. No. 64, and I
roust say that my opinion is different
from that expressed in the Tribune, in
regard to the merits of H. B. 52; and I
would like to point out to your readers,
some of the defects of this bill in as mild
a way as possible.. To say that the Trib
une had advocated or indorsed a measure
the merits or demerits of which it knew
not, would inipiy that the editors were
ignorant of that of which they wrote;
and to say that so able a patent journal
as the Tribune Would advocate a pu'jlic
measure that is unjust and would prove
a great detriment to so many of its sup
porters would cruel. Theiefore, I
shall not attempt to criticise sharply the
motives of the Tribune, or speak harshly
of norne of the "fair-minded community"
of our county scat who steal poll-books,
and manipulate the election returns of
their own precinct to defeat the wishes
of the people as expressed bv their bal
lots. Far from it. Such matters would
not be pertinent to the question that
I wish to consider, viz : H. B. 52. This
bill was introduced for the alleged pur
pose of forming the County of Wise and
the County of Coal; but rtaUy to defeat
any division. It was purposely made so
objectionable in nearly all of its provis
ions that those who wanted a division
most could not support it It robbed
the people of the new counties of all their
revenue and left them without a dollar
to support their county government until
the taxes of 1881 could be collected. It
attached neither of the new counties to
any judicial district for Circuit Court
purposes; therefore they would have been
without a Court in which to seek justice
or maintain the laws. This bill provided
for the new counties, no representation in
the Legislature of the State in the event
that the Legislature then in session,
should fail to make a new apportionment,
and fail it did. Therefore, we would
have had no voice or representation in
Are we to be driven to the conclusion
that 6uch fair-minded (1) journals as the
Tribune and the East Oregonian would
thrust upon tho people, who have given
them what vitality they possess, such
unjust and obnoxious measures as these 1
If these two journals support H. B. 52,
knowing its provisions, they are unpar
donable and should be excluded from
every household in each of the proposed
new counties; and if they support it, not
knowine its provisions, they should be
pitied for their weakness end ignorance.
If H. B. 52 wis a good "fair and just
one, and the managers at Pendleton
wanted it to pF3, why did Mr. Kelley,
who was their mouth-piece, and who in.
troduced the bill, vote to indefinitely
postpone his own bill the first opportu
nity that was offered; and when an effort
was made to bring the matter before the
house again in order that some compro
mise might be adopted, why did Mr.
Kelley vote no?
Why was the proposition to form a
new county in the Heppner country de
featedl It would be gratifying to have
Bonie light on this subject, as we have
E'eard not a single objection to their
measure and yet it was killed. Perhaps
the Tribune or the East Oregonian ' can
and will make this matter clear and show
that it was right that it should be so.
After H. B. No. 64 was amended by
the Committee on Counties; if passed, it
would have created the County of Knox,
containing just 23 surveyed townships.
Was this proposition too "radical V was
it too much and too "radical" for the
people of the eastern portion of Umatilla
county to ask for 23 townships out of
108 to form them a new county, The
people of Umatilla county will answer.
Sea 8 of H. B. No. C4 provides that
the County of Knox, -s-ithin one year
after its organization, shall assume, and
pay to the County of Umatilla a just
proportion of the indebtedness of Uma
tilla county after deducting therefrom
the value of the public property of Uma
Would the fair-minded Tribune have

Swedish Lapland during the month of
June. For six weeks there is scarcely
any night in the north of Sweden ; the
sun never sets, and the soil, constantly
heated, produces, in a month and a half,
barley and other crops. At that time of
the year the Laplanders pen up their rein
deers, and move their huts toward the
cultivated fields. Being very hospitable.
they greet with joy th arrival of tour
ists, who generally meet at Mount Galla
ware, 148 kilometres from Lulea. From
thai hill, which is 580 metres high, the
1-eautiful spectacle of the "midnight sun"
can be admired in better conditions than
from any other place. The 25th of J une
is the day selected for the ascension; it is
the longest day in the year, the sun being
twenty-two hours above the horizon.
This year the 24th of June was not favor

loudy sky, tke sun was not visibln at
midnight, tXo following day travelers
were well rewarded for their trouble,
the sun shining brightly at midnight.
Rich Silver Mine. JL W. Crandall,
Esq., and others, recently discovered, on
the head-watera of Pine Creek, Union
county, a Bilver mine, carrying galena,
silver and gold. The mine is pronounced
by experts very rich. The average width
of the vein is all the way from eight in
ches to four feet. Forty-five thousand
feet, showing mineral in all portions,
have been located by the discoverers.
Also some claims have been located by
Fred. Foster and Mr. Bxickyfellow who
discovered the Virtue mine. Mr. Cran
dall is firmly of the opioion that one of
the richest camps on the Pacific Coast
will spring up in the vicinity of his mines,
and that Baker City will be greatly bene
fitted thereby, because it will be tha out

On yesterday morning about 10 o'clock A.
M., after examining 63 peraons,. a jury of 12
men were empanneled to try Edward Murphy
on a charge of murder in the first degree, al
leged to have been committed in the killing
of T. D. French, near Heppner, in May last.
The following-named citizens compose the
jury, via : John Walker, Hiram Flickenger,
Wm. Burden, Eugene Bruzane, . A. Cole,
Frauk G. Effinger, Frank Dunn, J. S. King,
C. M. Long, L. C. BotUrock, D. E. Cargell
and Naei HaSon. '
.The prosecuting witness, C. T. Henderson,
gave good testiraony, and stood cross-examination
well. The testimony on the part of the
State made out the clearest case of murder in
the first degree that we ever heard. In fact
we never read of a case where the evidence
wiis more conclusive. The defense attempted
to set up the drunkenness of the accused; but
admitting that to be a defense, we think they
totally failed. : They only proved that he was
drinking ou the day prior to the murder, and
that he drank three glasses of beer about 12
hours before the shooting. We do not know
what the jury may think of the matter, but
we, after hearing all the testimony offered for
and against Murphy, say that he is clearly
guilty of murder in the first degree, and
should pay the debt that he has incurred
with "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a

is oarK. complected witu black bair and is
rather good looking, with the exception, that
he does not possess any of that frank, honest
look, which draws soul to soul and binds us
alt in a common brotherhood. He is not of
that low type of mental development which
Phrenologists usually ascribe to murderers.
His intellectual faculties are fairly developed,
yes we may say that they are above average,
conibativeness and destructiveness are large,
while veneration and those other faculties
which are calculated to restrain men from the
perpetration of such deeds, are rather small;
But all things considered he is intellectually
fully up to average. Tho prisoner seems to
look on the affair as of little importance; we
have not been able to see any emotion evinced
but once during all the trial; and that occurred
when the Judge ordered the jury to look on
the prisoner and be sworn. The emotion then
exhibited went to confirm his guilt rather than
otherwise. ' More than once during the trial
when the' witnesses were attempting to de
scribe tlie acts oi a drunk man tbe prisoner
smiled and seemed to enjoy the fun. ' .
In view of all the light thrown on the dark
deed during the trial, we are forced to- say
guilty as charged." . If Murphy was of that
low mental development which is scarcely
above an idiot, we might say that he should
be imprisoned for life, but as it is, we say he
well knew better and well knew it to be his
duty to abstain from such an act. So we wait
in suspense to see what twelve honest and
competent men will say on the subject. i

playing Petruchio with an actress consid

thought she let go the whip too readily,
when, as Petruchio, he wrested it from
the hand of Katharine. So, after the
play was over, he said, "You must hold
on to the whip with more firmness to
morrow night; grasp it as hard as you
can; I'll get it away from you, never

the joke and applauded the actress to the
echo. Finally, out of pure cood-nature,
she unloosed her hold, and the play pro
