'S A.'URD AY February 1. 1879
Our Washington correspondent,
commenting upon the recent sud
'den death of Representative Hart
ride, of Georgia, informs us that
several -congressmen are at present
lying quite til, t'hat Mr. Hartridge
is the sixth member of the present
bbcly who lias died, so to speak, in
his seat, and the third within a
few weeks who .has paid the debt
of nature, and then, in explanation
of this mortality, in congress, re
fers to the defective ventilation
and .pernicious sewerage of the
oapitol building, closing as follews:
It would be unfair to charge all
the several recent deaths of con
gressmen upon this as an immedi
ate cause, but it cannot be ignored
as a primary influence in 'leading
to such sad results. The two cham
bers in which the senate and the
house sit for business are set with
in chambers, like boxes inside
boxes, and original light and air
never reach their interior. The
air is pumped in through long con
duits, having their extremities in
the hillside on which the capitol
stands, and the actinic ray of
(Heaven's light, the chemical, life
generating ray, never gets within
the double thickness 'of ground
glass which makes the skylights,
"and is utterly excluded by the
outer walls, which are perforated
only for the admission of light to.

rooms. It-is'from thcasphyxiatirfjg

men to seek relief or protection in
alcohol. While congressHvill al
ways afford a good field for the
benevolent efforts of the temper

'Pho Mayor of San Francisco
declares-that he will insist before
the board of health upon the reso
lutions to cleclarc 'Hongkong an
infected port, anil prohibit all ves
sels arriving from hat iplace from
'discharging passengers or cargo
until subjected to a rigid quaran
tine of not less than -trhirty days.
In support of the position assumed
by him the Mayor directs atten
tion to the revised Statutes of the
United States as fellows;
"Section 4792. 3?he quarantine
and other restrains established by
the health laws of any state, respec
ting any vessels arriving in ori
bound to any .port or district there
of, shall be uuly dbserved by the
officers of the customs revenue of
the United States, by the masters
and crews tff the several revenue
cutters, and by the military officers
commanding in any fort or station
upon the -sea coast; and all such
officers of the United States shall
faithfully aid in the execution of
such quarantines and health laws,
according to 'their respective pow
ers and within their respective pre
cincts, and us they shall be direc
ted, from time to time, by the sec
rctaiy of the treasury.
Section 4793 provides that when
ever, by the health laws of the
state,1 or by the regulations made
pursuant thereto, any vessels arriv
ing within a collection district of

Salem Daily Statesman.
The telegraph makes announce
ment that the House committee on
public lands agreed on the 22d
inst., "to recommend the passage of
Luttrell's bill providing for the is
suance of script to owners of the
Oregon wagon road grant of July
2d, lSGrt, for a number of acres
equal to tlhe quantity of lands
within the limits . of the Klamath
reservation. This is identical with
the bill introduced in the senate
by Grover, to which we called at
tention some days ago. It seems
that Congressman Luttrell wants
to parcel out the lands of the btate
of Oregon to some of his constitu
ents on a bogus claim. It has been
shown that this claim is without
foundation in law and equity, and
that it is clearly a fraud upon the
country, and it will be charged up
against any representative in con
gress from Oregon who may be
found sustaining the claim. That
company already has over 500,000
acres of this state, which ought to
satisfy the greed of the owners, in
view of the small cost, towit": less
than twenty cents an acre. But
this is nothing here, or if there was
any just claim to these lands,
either in law or equity, we would
have nothing to say against the
Tito Indian Troubles.
Walla Walla Union.
Major N. A. Cornoyer, agent of the
Umatilla reservation, was in town
during the 'week. He reports every
thing quiet in the agency. The In
dians ppsar satisfied with the hanging
of the Indians on the 10th of January,
as they believe they ware guilty of the
murder of Coggan, but they do not
"believe the one hung last week was
guilty of that crime. They say, how
ever, that he had no business to be
away at the time of the murder, but
feel that the punishment of death was
tot) great for the crime. Now if the
whites who have been killing the
Indians since the inroad of the Ban
nocks could be punished, things could
be sort of balanced, and the indians
would see that there is not one law
for them and another for the white
men. As the state authorities have
not attempted or will-not attempt to
punish white men for killing Indians
the United States attorney for Ore
gon should see if there is any virtue
in the statutes of the United States.
