Volumo V of the history of Mexico, the
latest of tho list in Bancroft's ''History
of tho Pacific States," is received. It
treats of an important epoch in the his
tory of our southern sister republic, from
1824 to 1SG1, and is written with the same
fidelity to historic detail and picturesquo
verbiage that characterize tho earlier vol
umes of his great work. The work is of
great interest to American readers. The
chapter on tho secession of Texas from
Mexico and the history of the Mexican
war, written from an impartial stand
point, is a valuable contribution to tho
current history of the times Tho great
scope of the work, of which he volume
in question isbut an integral part, makes
it of abiding value to the public. The
volume is elaborately gotten up, has ac
curate maps and well executed illustra
tions and takes its place beside the other
volumes of tho scries on thousands of li
brary shelves all over the coast.

ADAIR 111105. VS. W. T. COLKMAX.
Tho caso of Adair vs. W. T. Coleman
cams up in tho D. S. circuit court yester
day, says tho Orcgonian of the 7th, for
hearing on a demurrer to tho complaint.
It seems that in 18S1 Coleman bought
fiOOO cases of snlmon of Adair Bros, nt
their cannery in Astoria. The fish was
shipped by direction of Coleman nnd
went to Liverpool, England to the care of
Bogers, Meyer &Co. On the 15th of Oc
tober in that year Coleman received a
dispatch stating that about 50 per cent of
the fish was bad. He immediately for
warded the dispatch to Adair iiros. nnd
instructed his agent at Astoria, Mr.
Brakke to ask the Adairs to assign
their property to him ns secuntv for the
loss, amounting to about $10,009 and in
case they would not do so ho was to at
tach the property. Adair Bros, convoj'ed
their cannery and other property to Cole
man ns security. Afterward Coleman re
ceived another dispatch stating that tho
fish were not so bad as at first thought.
Ho sent this dispatch to tho Adairs also.
In tho spring of 1SS2 tho Adairs wanted
thoir cannery back, as tho fishing season
was about to commence, and sought a
settlement with Coleman. He furnished
them with nn itemized account of losses
nnd expenses, amounting to a little over
$ 1,000 which they paid and took their
Sinco then they brought a suit in tho
state circuit court at Astoria to recover
the money paid Coleman, on tho ground
that he took advantage of them and de
ceived them. The suit was removed here
by Coleman. Tho grounds of the de
murrer to tho bill are that if the plaintiffs
nrejentitted to recover anything they have
a plain and adequate remedy at 1p w, nnd
therefore cannot properly bring a suit in
chancery; nnd that they are not entitleed
to recover at all as there wasa stetlement
by consent of both.partfes at the solicita
tion of the -Adairs, each party being
equally advised of the fact m the matter.
Tho demurrer was argued b3 C. W. Ful
ton for tho plaintiffs and Judge Kelly for
the defendant, and the subject taken
The matter on wheso head rests tho re
sponsibility of the Oregon exhibit will
soon be brought up. The first car load
of goods sent, says the AVirs, were col
lected by Messrs. Allen and Crawford
to pay the expenses of which the stale
voted 5,000. The exhibit was not suffi
cient, nnd Mr. Allen wrote here asking
that it bo replenished. The Oregon board
of immigration collected 325 a. -ut
another car load of stuff on to New r
leans, including 10,000 pamphlet.
Sinco that time tho Oregon board of im
migration has become a state institution,
and at the meeting Tuesday evening thoy
refused to take any responsibility for tho
oxhibit on their shoulders. What has
become of the 5,000 voted to pay ex
penses of the exhibit is a mystery. It
is certain that J. W. Virtue, of Baker
City got $1,000 for tho exhibition of a
cabinet of minerals; it is stated that
the cabinet was never sent to Now Or
leans, but was sold in Chicago by Mr.
Virtue. Other parties who mado them
selves prominent at first havo dropped
from public view since obtaining their
salary. Governor Moody is credited with
pronouncing the matter an outright
swindle, and it would havo bsen investi
gated by the legislature at the last ses
sion, but for tho stubborn senatorial con
test. If nn extra session is called, tho
thing will be looked into.

Tho tug Hunter arrived at North Bend
Tuesday, says tho Coast Ji7, with John
Kruse and the crow he took to Shonlwater
bay to repair the schooner Mclanclhon,
which they found water-logged on their

beached, when tho leak was found to bo
in tho casing of tho center-board, which
wes taken off and supplanted by a ke6l.

It is proposed to build pontoons at the

feet of timber resting on tho lower track

tho river from low to high water at thi-
point is 27 feet lho lowest stage being
generally during tho latter part of De

the mean sea level.
Tho 0. 11. and N. Co. recently proposed
to take the steamer Olympian, which
has "been lying at Tacoma for a year past,
to San Francisco, where bIio was to be
placed on tho dry dock and repaired.
All preparations were made for tho jour
ney, but the scheme was knocked in the
head by tho receipt of a telegram from
San Francisco announcing that tho
insurance companies in which the vessel
is insured for 200,000 would cancel tho
policy if tho guards wero not removed bo
fore making tho trip. Tho removal and
replacing of tho guards will cost nt least
1,00;. The crow engaged for the
passage to San Francisco havo been
discharged, and it is doubtful if the
Olympian will bo repaired, at least for
somo time to come.

The parsimonious policy inaugurated
by the "O. It & N. Co. mce the Boston
oso came into control of its stock may
temporarily increase the dividend.-, but
in "tho long run" it "'won't pay" and.
now that it has been probably leased to
tho U. P. and N. P. Co's., the most ob
jectionable features may be abandoned.
Oregon, lite Ireland under control of
English landlords, may suffer the blood
sucking process the give-me-cvery thmg-and-,
for a sciuson, withont doing anything
more s-erious than to show its teeth: but
when it begins to feel that the niggardly
injustico is to ba kept up forever, and
that its very life is to be squeezed out by
degrees, by a set or foreign financiers who
care for nothing but their "pound of
flesh," it may possiblv bite.
In the days of tho old O. S. N. Co.,
when t he basinesi was not nearly as large
as now, the stock was owned almost ex
clusively in this city, and good salaries
were paid good men, and reciprocation
was tho order of the day. These men
didn't 'want the world," yet they grow
rich, says the Welcome, as did many of
their employes, and Portland flourished.
In those days newspapers were paid
ca.ih for advertising, and would no more
have been insulted with a proposition to
publish time cards and "locals" for free
rides than a competent employe would
have been given tho alternative in his old
age and after long and faithful service, of
seeking other occupation or accepting a
twenty psr cent reduction in his wage3.
It wouldn't have been anything of a
surprise during this New England su
premacy to have heard that an order had
reached here from tho economical men
of the hub that henceforth clerks must
save ink by not crossing t's and dotting

pers to save wear and tear on tho differ
ent steamboats; in fact such instructions
mav yet come, as the leaso of tho O. It
&' J. Co. to the transcontinental lines is
not yet definitely settled.

Although microscopic in size, these "Ms"
are plainly discernible on the coin even
to the naked eye after a careful search.
An eagle-eyed Wall Btreet man recently
discovered one cf these letters, nnd
started among his acquaintances the fol
lowing puzzle: "Find three letter 'Ms'
on the standard dollar." Two aro readi
ly found ono in the word "unuin" and
another in tho word "America," but tho
third is not so easily found. An inter
view with chief Drummondof the Uni
ted States secret service showed that
there aro four "Ms" instead of three, and
the fourth, hitherto unnoticed even by
Wall street men, was pointed out to the
reporter. Mr. Drummond laughed when
his attention was called to tho matter,
and 83id: "Tho presence of these extra
letters on tho standard dollar was first
brought to my notice by one of
my clerks. They were, of course,
cut in the die" by Morgan." The
chief of tho secret servico acknowl
edged that they hid not escaped tho at
tention of tho counterfeiter, who hnd
placed them on tho falso coins. Similar
instances of tho mutilation of dies aro

and a stringent law passed against tho

the initial letter of his surnamo on tho

microscopic dimensions that it escaped

of the fact led to the samo result as in
