An interesting point for travelers
has just been decided by the Supreme
Oourt ot t aliloruia. llie case was
that of Kufus V. Lundy, of Cowler
City, Kan., vs. the C. P. R. R., repre
senting the U. P. R. R. Ha wrote tor
and purchased a ticket at Omaha for Sa 1
Francisco. It was stamped "good fer
nine days" from the date of issue.
The ticket was two days in the mail on
the way, and, although he used the
ticket us soon as received, the limitation
expired while he was en route. Th
conductor expelled him from the train
at Kelton, en tbe ground that th
ticket hud expired. The court below
decided that the plaintiff must not only
commence, but complete bis journey
within the nine days from the date of
the ticket. The supreme court reversed
this aud decided that, if the bearer pre
sented himself on the traiu of the U. P
to take passage at any time within the
nine day from tho date ef issue,
was all that was required.
Just at this time when so many

to the president an item on the subject.
Do you really think," said Mr. Lin

sion of mv nominatisn?" "Certainly,"
said tbe editor, "the suggestion was so
opportune that it was at ouce taken up
bv other papers, and the result was
your nomination and election." "Ah!
well," said Mr. Lincoln, with a sigh,
and assuming a rather gloomy counte
nance, "I am glad to see jou and to
know thie, but you will have to excus-e
me. I am just goin to the War De

Postmaster General Vilas, is quoted
as Having saui-: "ine programme oi
the whole cabinet is to select officials
for their worth and value to the govern
ment. The policy of the administra
tion is to bear out the civil service rules
to the full extent iu the management of
the various departments. I shall en
force the rules here. .
Secretary McCulloch is quoted s say
ing that there are tube a few chauges
in the treasury department ami these
will be iu important positions. ' At the
state department it is reported that Sec
retary Bavard has said there will he
very few changes.
It is understood that it is the inten
tion of tbe President to reduce the cler
ical force of the While House and to do
away with the system of keeping au
elaborate record of all business brought
there. In accordance with this pro
posed curtailment of the force four em
ployes of the executive mansion were
noli Lied Wednesday that after the 15th
iust. their services would not be re
quired. These are Henry C. Morton of
Ohio, J. S. Bolway of Ohio aud W. R.
Duke of West Virginia, clerks at S1S00,
S1G0O and 1400 per annum respective

who receives $1400 per annum.
It is plain that Cleveland intends that

A resolution offered Wednesday by
Hoar, that Blair be sworn in as Sena
tor to fill the vacancy, was taken up,
and a very long argument ensued. The
Legislature which is to elect a Senator
from New Hampshire will net meet
until next June, and the debate was
upou the point whether in this emer
gency the governor had a right to ap
point Blair to fill the vacaucy, ana
whether a vacancy had really occurred
which the executive could provide for.
Nothing of particular interest was de

Oa the afternoon of March 8th, while
a young man named W illiaui Conkling
was engaged in repairing a pump .cylin
der iu a well in Vinson, the sides caved
in on him. When the accident happen
ed he was almost half way down the
welL His assistants at onee gave the
alarm, and a number of men came to
his help. To all appearances the well
seemed about two-thirds filled with
heavy rocks and boulders. On lower
ing a man down he found that Conkling
was still alive, as he could be plainly
heard calling fur help. Then came the
difficult task of removing the rock. The
work was greatly enhanced by the fear
that a jar might displace the keystene
and precipitate the mass ef stone en the
After an hour's work a small hole on
each side was made and ropes were
passed through the holes to Conkling,
also some pieces of plank. He tied both
ropes to the plauk, and it was then
diawu firmly up against the rocks and
served to hold them in place. Other
pieces of timber were passed down,
which he placed above his head and
body, se as to protect himself from fall
ing rocks. As every piece ef earth or
rock would fall below it would assist in
raising the level of the water, and when
after four hours' hard work, the prison
er was released, the cold, chilling water
had reached his throat. When the
rocks caved in it caught one of his legs
at the ankle, breaking iu two places,
and, securely heldim; his foot in place.
Conkling was very courageous and kept
up to the last, although nearly benumb
ed by the cold water. As soon a3 an
aperture was made, a bottle of liquor
was passed down to him which material
ly assisted in keeping him alive. As
soon as liberated he was treated to a
bath of camphor and alcohol, and by
vigorous rubbing circulation and
warmth was imparted to him. Conk
ling was ouce before caught nearly in a
like manner, yet two such close calls do
not seem to frighten him, as he expresses
his determination to dig niore wells.

There seems to be little doubt about
the finding of a vein of bitumiuous coal
on the ranch of Mr.-Livingstone, about
twelve miles up Mill creek. The vein
is at the foot of the hill on the southerly
side of the creek, its outiTojij.iuss about
a foot aud a half wide, and it haa been
traced about two hundred feet. A
shaft ten feet in length has been sunk
and the vein has been found to be three
feet wide, and the coal better. The
croppiogs are hard aod shsie-like and
do not burn, while specimens taken
from the end of the shaft burn freely,
giving eut a great deal of smoke, "burn
ing, as one remaraea, n.e a piece oi
pitch." Several parties who have vis
ited the mine, or examined and tested
the samples brought to town, are satis
fied that a goed article of bituminous

like a literary man." "Oh! he isu't!"
replied another young lady resident.

To th Editor ot the Lradbr:
Id reply to A.' L. Powell's xalled "defense" in
your last isnue, I have but a few words to say, I
regard his personal attacks through the papers as
of no particular damage to me, Then it is known
to the community that he is the author, and that
he is forced to use your paper to give publicity to
his lies, instead of the East Oregon ian, who would
not publish his communication because the editor
knew at least part of it to be a lie. Suffice it to
say, I shall treat with silent contempt anything
he may write or say about me in the future, as I
regard a personal controversy through the public
prints whh such a man as he as being beneath the
dignity of a gentleman. G. W. sJSQ,
