LUCTUKH 1V PltOl'. IlAWI.UV
A large and appreciative nil
dlcnce erected Prof. Hnwley nt
Mnrtin'M Hull, Inst Friday evening
The Professor showed himself to he
muster ot his subject: "The
.Speaker of the House of Represen
tatives and his Power." lie
clearly detuoustrnted that the
House Speaker possesses more
power in his legislative enpneity
than any similar officer in the
world, The urowtli of this power
was traced through history to the
autocratic representative of to day,
and as ex-Speaker Heed has Haiti
"some one must have a policy and
n plan and who is more fitted to
enforce, one than the Speaker?"
The method of appointing the com
mittees mid outlining the work of
each, the Instructions as to what
and when they shall say, was plain
ly presented and the reasons why
he wields such power, was ex
plained. The threat power of the
committee on rules, the arbitrary
recognition of a member, the refer
ence of bills, counting quorum and
the methods adopted to prevent
fillihustcriuir, were detailed with
great care. This power, as useid
by Speakers from both old parties,
has crown through necessity from
the time of Henry Clay, and is oc
casioned by the introduction of so
many bills, making it necessary for
.some one to select those of most im
portance and bring them to a vote.
On this point 1'rof Hawley aptly
said that "had all bills introduced
received attention at the last ses
sion of Conrcs-i, but iK minutes
would have been allowed for each."
The lecture was one of the most in
structive ami entertaining ever de
livered in Cottage Grove. The
next lecture will be by Prof. French
of the State Normal, on "Europe,"
illustrated by the stereoptican.
This is a course of lectures that no
one in town should miss.
Mav Gut A Fokttnh.
From present indications Win.
Laudcss, of this city, is apt to strike
it streak of good luck in the imme
diate future. He is in receipt of
news that he is one of several heirs
to the famous Croukritc estate of
Holland, the heirs of which have
been extensively advertised for in
the leading papers of the United
Stales for the past four years. The
.estate is said to be worth $3o.ooo.
ooo, mid Mr. Landcr-s is one of
about 300 heirs. He left here this
week for l'ortlaud where he will
make a march for some family rcc
urds in po-wesiii'-n of his uncle, who
resides in that citv. Mr. I.andess'
fiieuds wish him all possible success
and trust that he may live many
, years to enjoy his .share of the
Good kok IIkick.
, C. E. Harwood, of Florence,
Lane county, Oregon, has been ex
perimenting with the beach sand,
with the view of making brick
from it. Mr. John Urund of Ho
heiuia. who has been visiting on
the coast for a number of weeks,
nnd who returned here this week,
tells a Nugget man that the exper
iments of Mr. Harwood have thus
iar been highly satisfactory, and
that he has several samples of
"glass brick" which arc superior
to anything Mr. Ilrtind has seen in
the brick line. Mr. Harwood is
satisfied that lje has discovered n
process by which he will be able to
produce a brick at comparatively
the same cost, that will far excel!
anything of the kind yet placed up
on the market.
St Valentine's Day, February 14,
was the twenty-fifth anniversary of
the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. B.
Lurch of this city. At 9 o'clock in

prised when a number of their
friends "happened" in on them.
Some-very beautiful presents were
left with them along with hearty
congratulations and well wishes
for many returns of the day. The
day was also the anniversary of the
birth of Miss Lillian Lurch, making
the evening all the more enjoyable
Mrs. Julia Wood, formerly of

accident Monday morning. While

of her fingers off. A phone mes
sage was sent to Dr. Job, who re
sponded at once, arriving there
that evening. He found it neces
sary to amputate the finger at the
nuckle joint. At last accounts the
lady was resting easily.
