the news reached us a few weeks
ago when the boys were in the heat
of battle, that one or more of our
choseti sons were shot upon the
fieM, while the news would have
been painful still it would not have
been so distressing for those near
and dear, for then they were expect
ing it, but . to get the news just a
day or two before the return trip
for home, that two of our soldier
boys are severely wounded, with
everything against their recovery,
or at best subject to weeks and per
haps months of suffering upon the
hospital cot, is indeed a distressing
circumstance. But those who in
blood are near the wounded soldiers,
have some consolation in the fact
that they do not grieve alone
Every heart 111 this nation grieves
at the loss of a noble and patriotic
It is said that the day is not far
distant when the Oregonian wil
have a most formidable contem
porary in the way ol a daily paper,
published by Geo. L. Hutchin the
publisher of Portland's new paper,
the Northwest Herald. Well the
Oregonian is a good paper, ablj
edited, with a magnificent circu
lation both daily and weekly back
of its liberal advertising patronage,
but opposition is the life of any
business enterprise, and when the
new daily springs into life the Ore
gonian will simply make another
stride, and the fight will be fairly
on. This time it is predicted the
Oregonian will have not only
newspaper men and brains to con
tend with but capital as well.
The editor of Bohemia Nugget
is in receipt of an invitation to be
in attendance upon the Great
American Exposition to be held at
Omaha, Nebraska from July 1 to
November 1 1899. We would like
right, smart to be mixed up with
that little Omaha affair, but our
shoes are nigh "gin out;" and
then agnin we take a slight excep
tion to the lateness of the arrival of
the "invite." We should have re
ceived the invitation at least three
months ago. Our record from the
Mississippi to the big pond in the
good old days was six
months, and we don't feel like
Again the Eugene Guard clips a
piece from the Bulletin and gives
credit to another paper. What
is the matter with the Guard edi
tors? Either credit right or not at
all. Junction City Bulletin. Never
mind Bro. Lawrence. You'll get
used to little things like that. The
Messenger has been dead five
mouths, but every other week the
Guard credits Bohemia Nugget
clippings to the Messenger just the
to find any thing of n suspicious nature,
during the remainder of the night.
In the morning when Postmaster
Sherwood came down to open the ollicc
he discovered that his olliee had been
entered, the safe blown wide open and
the treasure Ikhc gone. Upon inspec
tion Mr. Sherwood was satisfied that
nothing of importance was taken ex
cept money, us the stamps and stamped
envelopes were unmolested, but in the
money matter the perpetrators of the
crime made n good big haul, cleaning
up about $900 or $1,000.
Entrance to the like was gained by
opening the wooden door which had
been placed in protection of the rear
wiudowof the private office. This door
was hinged on to the side of the window
casing and was bolted clear through, and
fastened by hooks from the inside. The
hook was lifted bv iirrinir and the
wooden door swung open.
A stick was used to fasten the window
down from the inside by being braced
from the top of the lower Bash against
one of the cross pieces in the upper
sash. Evidently the robbers knew ex
actly where this was used as thny dex
terously broke out a small bit of glass
from the corner of the section against
which the stick was placed, pushed the
stick in upon the floor, raised the win
dow and crawled in.
Everything seemed to belwcll planned
for they didn't waste anv time. Thrv
drilled a hole into the safe door, nut in
a cha ge of powder big enough to blow
open a safe door twico the size of the
one worked upon, stuck a fuse to it,
struck a match to the fuse and let her
go. It must have been a terrible shock
for it broke the big iron door hineos
short off nnd thew the door fullv five
feet striking the wall and leaving a hie
dent in the wood and paint. The com
bination lock was blown clear out of
the door and was found upon the floor.
nve-gallon can of coal oil which was
setting near the wall was hit bv the
door HB it flew acmes the rnn.n un.l
kn eked over spilling on the floor. One
can hardly imagine how the town
escaped a fire aB burned matches were
found scattered around the floor over
which the coal oil spread.
Tho robbers removed the treasure box
and departed for whereabouts unknown.
Postmaster Sherwood notified the
officers and search was made fnr
clue but up to the present time no clue
has been found. Marshal Miller at the
suggetion of Postmaster Sherwood ar-
restod some suspicious looking char
acters but as nothing could be nroved
against them they were released.
