Bonds to the value of $15,000, 000 were formally transferred to the trustees of the Leland Stanford Jr. University of California on De cember 9th by Mrs. Jane L. Stan ford. This represents accumula tions since the death of Senator Stanford. It means that nearly all of her private fortune has been given by Mrs. Stanford to endow the university founded by her late husband to commemorate their only son. Mrs. Stanford has faithfully fol lowed the plans made by the late senator for the foundation, equip tnent and growth of a great institu tion of learning. Beginning with the construction of the university buildings at the home ranch, Palo Alto, each year has seen new ad ditions both to the material needs of the institution and to the faculty This gift places Stanford in the first financial rank among the great universities ol the world, and will enable it to carry out many pro jected improvements. Stanford University stands today as one of the two great educational institutions vest of the Missouri river. With California it ranks in efficiency and scope with Minne sota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Chica go, Pennsylvania and Cornell, and possibly exceeds any of them tn financial backing.

I It mity be said without ollbuiw, I since the ns.sertion is but jusl that Mrs. Benjamin Harrison, the young widow of the late ex-President Hnrrison, is not u proper claimant for n persion. It the marriage of young women to old soldiers of the rnnk mid file is to be censured ns it has been and is ns adding a heavy and utterly unjust burden to the pension fund, the women who commit the same ofTetise against equity by marrying ex-presidents and elderly officers of the army cannot in justice be exempt from like criticism when they, through their agents, put in claims for pensions. Had the wife whom General Harrison married in youth, who shared the vicissitudes of war and poverty with him. and who came up with him to well-earned honor and position, outlived him, she would have been at least fairly entitled with Mrs. Garfield, Mrs. Grant and Mrs. McKinley to the consideration shown by a pension grant. The present Mrs. Harrison has no such claim upon the public, she having been merely the tra ditional "old man's darling" of her husband's few latest years, and not in any sense a companion of the vicissitudes and labors ol his life. The Oregonian's position on this question is well known, and it is free to say that the scandal of the marriage of a young woman to an old soldier, which develops when she, as his young widow, makes claim for a pension, is not one of degree, but of kind, and extends impartially all along the Hue, from the highest to the lowest. Such a marriage is, of course, a matter of personal taste and private business, as long as the public is , not asked to endow its youthful re lict with a pension. When that time comes, however, as come it j surely will, the public is justified I in uttering a strong protest, regard- j less of the name that is attached to I the application for a pension. As the widow of General Harrison the ' present Mrs. Harrison was amply provided for in his will; as thej widow of ex-President Harrison; she is not entitled to $5000 or any other sum per annum from the government. This is a plain truth, plainly stated, and its simple justice should render it void of offense. If fashion decreed the wearing of three hundred pounds of china armor the average woman would be found right in line doing her blue-eyed best to be up to date. If a man worked as hard to get to heaven as he does to get an office he'd have a cinch oh the glorious hereafter. The old man gives experience. The young man gives pointers. Che Crystal gon. mining o. (INCORI'OKATED) O. W. LLOYD, President II. I). SCOTT, Vice-l'resIUent The five splendid properties comprising the mining claims forming this company are located in the great Bohemia Mining District in Lane and Douglas counties, Oregon. These properties have had much work done upon them, so that now they are embryo mines with an assured future. The stock of this company is now upon the market. Its par value is $1 It is non-assessable. Its principal office is in Cottage Grove. For development purposes a limited amount of stock has been authorized to be sold at 3 cents per share. Two of the claims the Mountain Lion and F.l Calado are on the now famous Helena lode. These two claims have had over 600 feet of tunnels run on them and the face of the tunnels are now in solid ore. Frank Jordan, Secretary ONK MORU. ltHvkl)1l K(tlc. It is announced that King Kd wiml and Queen Alexandra have approved the following verse being added to the British national an them: In orfect peace sorono, Keep thou our gracious Queen, With her abide; May heaven's own sunshine fair Rest on her everywhere; Hear thou thy people's prayer, Got! save the Queen. Still another stanza might be added, something like this: Gixl save the Prince of Widen And all the girls and male Of royal line; Mav our beloved I'rineo From dangers never wince; Grant all our prayerful hints, Oh, Lord benign. That sort of thing could be in definitely continued, and would be, but for the fact that authors of other stanzas might injure their chances, in these states, of ever becoming successors to Ambassa dor Choate in the office wherein he finds a minimum of labor and a maximum of delight. STRAXGE EFFECT OF Oil. DRILLING. News comes from Indio of a most remarkable strike by the Riverside Oil Co., while drilling for petroleum at their plant 1 mile east of Volcano Springs. At a depth of 500 feet the bit penetrated a sul terranean volcauo which released a column of steam, hot mud and molten rock that shot into the air for a height of over 100 feet. The drilling outfit was wrecked but fortunately no one operating the rig was injured. The location is now a miniature volcauo, hurling steam, mud and molten stuff high into the air, the roaring noise from which can be heard over a mile distant. Operations have been en tirely abandoned, and the hole is constantly enlarging and fears are entertained that the well may turn into a volcano of large proportions. Boulders of a large size have been thrown high into the air while smaller stones have been hurled hundreds of feet by the subter ranean disturbance. The locality is on the edge of the well-known Salton Basin. POINTED PARAGRAPHS. The way to destroy courage is not to pluck it up. Words may shake a man's con victions but seldom shatter tbem. Speaking of bargains, good reso lutions will soon be marked down. Wit is the wine of intellect, and ill-nature turns it into vinegar. Even when a girl has money in her own name she is anxious to change it. The world always has time to listen to the man who has some thing to say. KHANK WHEKI.KIt, Treasurer FKANK K.
