I mean to use the term "liable" in an

A DECISION IX THE LIQUOR CASE.
In the case of the state of Oregon
vs. Samuel Harris and Chas. Wright,
wherein the defendants were indicted
for violating the provisions of the
law passed by the last legislature,
and generally known as the Keady
liquor law, the circuit court yester
day entered up a judgment pro forma
sustaining the demurrer to the indict
ment This case was brought by
agreement to test the validity of the
said law, and while the court ex
pressed the opinion that the
law was constitutional and valid.
by consent the above judgment
was entered up in order that
the case might be appealed at once to
the supreme court, and be heard and
determined at once by that body.
Had a judgment been entered in ac
cordance with the opinion expressed
by the court the defendants would
have to be tried at tho May term be
fore an appeal conld have been taken
and a decision by the supreme court
deferred until the October term;
hence the entering of the judgment
as above stated by the circuit conrt

"Hard working Bill," whom a good
many Astorians know, is now living
near Eagle Cliff, W. T. A short time
ago he had an adventure with a con
gar, the biggest ever seen in that lo
cality. He shot him while on the
limbNof a tree 100 feet from the
grofhid, or rather water, for when the
animal fell he plumped into the wa
ter, the dogs after him. Even then
he showed fight and would have
killed the dogs, had not the hunter
fired six bullets more into him. He
measured fourteen feet from the tip
of his nose to the tip of his tail and
was a "buster." The dogs that are
used in hunting the cougar area
cross between the hound and the bull

Berlin Reiclislaj: Rpjerl
Portland, Mar. 12. About four
o'clock this morning two loud explo
sions were heard in the lower part of
the city. It transpired that the ex
plosions were at a China wash house,
the occupants of which were injured.
The house was but slightly injured.
No arrests, no clue. The "explosions
caused considerable excitement
About eleven o'clock last night a
bright light was seen west of the city.
It was learned this morning that a
party of white men had visited the
Chinese quarters and had driven the
occupants out and burned the huts.
It is also stated that they robbed the
Chinamen, but this is not believed.
All the Chinamen that were driven
out came to town.
Col. Phillips, the victim of last
night's robbery and shooting in
East Portland last night is still alive,
but there are small hopes of his re
covery. There is as yet no clue to
the perpetrators of the deed.

New York, Mar. 12. The Mail

sixteen rounds in a barn at Harrison,

and that the fight resulted in a vic

at four o'clock this morning and
lasted an hour. Both were badly
punished and the fight was a verv
closely contested one.
Another evening paper says that no
fight has occurred.

IN REPLY TO -CLATSOP."
Astoria, March 12, 1880.
I would like to say in auswer to
"Clatsop." of Knappa, that no one
has any lawful right to sell liquors of
any kind on the water within three
miles of the shore of this county, ex
cepting he has a license therefor is
sued by the same authorities and on
the same conditions as if his scow or
saloon were located on the land.
The officers of the law are elected
to prosecute and punish all such of
fenders as "Clatsop" describes. If
the officers of the law neglect or re
fuse to attend to their official duty
in this matter, our only remedy is the
secret ballot Force must not be
thought of. It is our duty, as I con
ceive it, to vote, independently or
party preference, for men who will
dare enforce the law in these cases.
Cannerymen have a direct and deep
interest in this matter. The whisky
scows are the cause of heavy losses
to them oftentimes. Would it not
be well for each canneryman to con
tribute a small sum with which to
employ an efficient detective who will
aid, if necessary, the officers of the
law in arraigning and prosecuting
the offenders? That i3, of course,
providing that we find the officers in
clined to punish the scow-men and
need some assistance in that way.

The undersigned take this method
of expressing our most hearty thanks

THE MINING FEVER.
Gentle or ferocious reader, did you
ever have n touch of that delirious
complaint known as "the mining fe
ver?" Did you ever see in your
mind's eye whilo attending to ordin
ary occupations, a virgin mining camp
where tho trail of the serpent was yet
untrailed and claims were to be had
for the taking? Did you ever devour
a fragment of a newspaper contain
ing an account of the strike in Grizzly
gulch, or the wondrous richness of
the ore in Dusty district and wish
you were thar?
Eerhaps your pulses are stirred
into remembrance of the days when
you tramped three miles to "the
store" after a hard day's work for the
flour, bacon and baking powder and
coffee; when a clay pipe cost two bits
and whisky was two dollars a pint;
when you waited for months for the
water'to rise at Echo Rock; of the
weeks of weary work at Soledad
canon; of the flume you cut and built
through the granite at Table moun
tain and which was swept away by
the spring freshet: of the gravel at
Poverty flat which didn't pan out a
cent to the yard, of the $3,000 lost in
the Geiger grade; of the year you
put in on the razor blade at Austin;
of the 20,000 you refusedjfor your
ledge at Tuscarora, which aforesaid
ledge you would have sold a week af
ter for a new poker deck.
A good many memories of the old
days come upon you and you think
as you read of Granite creek or Col
ville that perhaps the El Dorado is
still somewhere for you. You read
of the "rush" to the new district and
you see men going, and long to be in
with the first You can't help it If

March 4th, 188G.
My uncle, Cyrus Oluey, who resided
in Astoria in your county, died there,
I think, in 1870. He had a large es
tate which was settled by the court
and divided between his brothers and
sisters; my mother falling heir to a
part of it Several years ago she
deeded it by a quit claim deed to my
brother, Nathan O. Hardy. He after
wards tried to force a written state
ment from my mother to the effect
that the deed she gave him was
a warranty daed. When she denied
giving him such a deed he caused all
of his brothers bnt me, and all of his
sisters but one, to believe the property
in Astoria was of but little value, and
thereby obtained- a i elinquishment
from them of their right to a part of
their mother's share of her brother's
estate, in his favor. In the fall of
1871 1 was legally declared to be in
sane and was sent to the state hos
pital for the insane and a guardian
was appointed over me. He refused
to sign away my right to my uncle's
property in favor of my brother, and
so he failed to get it into his posses
sion. My guardian now tells me he
can obtain no account of my property
in Astoria; so I decided to ask yon
to-day in regard to it and await your
reply. Has any property been sold
for taxes in your count within the
past six years, that was assessed as
nou resident property, belonging to
W. D. Hardy, a resident of the state
of Iowa? Has any property in your
county been sold for taxes within the
past six years, that has been assessed
to Nathan O. Hardy, which property
had formerly been known to be a part
of the Cyrus Olney estate, situated in
Clatsop county, Oregon, and in the
town or city of Astoria? An early
answer from yon will oblige

CALIFORNIA AND OBEGON ROAD.
The Yreka, Cal. Journal learns
from trustworthy sources that there
are at least two thousand men at
work on the railroad above Delta,
crowding the work along to reach
Bailey's as soon as possible, the rail
road owning that ranch and the noted
springs thereon. The railroad force
comprises mostly Chinamen, only 250
white men being employed. Work,
however, i3 given to all white men de
sirous of working for a dollar a day
and board. The driving away of
Chinamen from various sections ona
bles tho railroad compdhy to secure
plenty of Chinese laborers at cheap
est rates. It is reported that Scobie
has received, orders to crowd the ma
sonry work as fast as possible, as his
work must be completed first, in or
der to allow speedy progress with the
vast army of men engaged in grading
and filling. The tunnel work is also
being pushed forward as fast as pos
sible from both ends of each tuunel,
with day and night shifts, as only a
certain number of men can work in
the tunnel at a time.
Some sixty-five more dump-carts
and four heavy wagons, with several
carloads of heavy timber for bridges
and trestle work, came up on last
Thursday's train, also several more
Chinamen, making one of the longest
trains over hauled to Delta and Slate
Mr. Scobie, the contractor for
building culverts and masonry work,
i3 putting on more men, and crowd
ing work as fast as possible. It is
the general opinion that the road will
be pushed speedily to Bailey's, where
the company can establish the ter
minus on their own grounds, and
build up quite a place, and may stop
there for some years, if the land grant
is forfeited as seems probable. When
completed to this point, nearly all the
through passenger travel will take
the overland route between Portland
and San Francesco, in preference to
steamer, and all the freight for this
section will come via Bailey'B from
San Francisco, without any division
of trade with Portland. The distance
from Bailey's and Ashland to Yreka
is about tlm sama, bnt the high Siski
you range, on Ashland road, is equal
to nearly a third more distance over
the ronte to Bailey's. At Bailey's
the California railroad will also be
able to supply all of southeastern Or
egon, and Klamath Lake basin to
better advantage than tho Oregon
railroads, on account of easier outlets
for wagon roads, as high mountains
intervene between southeastern Ore
gon and Bogne river valley, through
which the Oregon railroad is built
The Bedding Democrat says tho
track is laid to a point just below
Portuguese Flat, and construction
trains rnn to the end of the track,
at which place Col. Scobie has
140 whito men at work on the
piers of two of the largest and most
expensive bridges on the whole road.
Each of tho piers of tho bridges will
cost over S10,000, a3 they are about
forty feet in height, fifteen feet wide
at the base and the retaining walls
are 125 feet in length.

northwest is being drained of a great
number who wero employed in the

more preferable class of immigrants
who are moving on farms and at once
begin tbe cultivation of the soil and

The task set for the Corwin is con
sidered to be a particularly difficult
one. Not only have the Aleut, the
Mahlemute, the Thlinkir, the Tenu

to the absorption of firewater, but
they are willing to pay good prices,
indentations, extends for thousands of

one. In the next place the Alaskan

best place in the world for smugglers

Nor can the Corwin count upon
very much assistance from the treas

The revenue force in Alaska consists
of a collector of customs at Sitka,
with a deputy and a marshal, and
one deputy at Wrangel, Tongas and
Onnalaska. The collector has no
steam launch at his disposal, and
what he and his deputies can do by
the dignity of their office towards
putting down illicit dealing in whis
ky may be imagined.
Under the existing laws, too, the
collector at San Francisco has his
hands tied, since he cannot prove
the correctness of the manifest

the captain going to Sitka should
want to make a return of flour for
whisky that is, havo whisky ou

one to prevent him from doing so.
The Deal's duties will not be bo
