In October last a meeting of miners,
In response to a call, was held in Spo
kane, Washington. At this ineeflng
the Northwest Miners' Association
was organized, having for Its ob
ject the advancement of all mining
Interests In Oregon, Washington,
Idaho, Montana and British Colum
bia. To reach every camp, second
vice-presidents were appointed who
organize such mining district into
clubs that shall co-operate through
representatives or delegates with the
head organization. Forty-two sec
ond vice-presidents have been ap
pointed In Oregon. Th-we officers
become the chief executive of their
respective clubs.
An executive Hireling of second
vice-presidents was called for Febru
ary 2Jd, at Spokane. Tills meeting
was largely attended, though there
were not as many Oregonmns present
as there ought to have been, or as the
mining interests of the state demand'
ed. Much work of great importance
to the miner was mapped out and re
ferred to appropriate committees,
with Instructions to report at the an
nual meeting In October next. The
judiciary committee was Instructed
to report a uniform bill providing for
recording mining claims to be pre
sented to the legislature of each of
the four states above named, and to
British Columl.ia. Some of the stales
have statutes directing how claims,
whether placer or quartz, may bo re
corded, while some have none. The
miners in ten ted wili the law to Is?
uniform throughout the belt, and, as
it is a matter concerning the miner
alone, the legislature of each state
will no doubt pass the bill at once.
The other bill is an amendment of
the present congressional law touch
ing the location of claims on newly
discovered veins. The present law is
said to have but one defect, and that
one leaves room for bitter disputes
and exensive litigation. It provides
that a locator must survey his end
lines at right angles to the lodeat the
points where his claim begins and
ends. He is by law authorized to
work his vein, following its dips and
angles within these "end lines." As
long as the vein is straight, the miner
can never get Into the territory of his
neighbor, bur if . the vein twists or
curves it Is ren at once that the end
lines of thi various levator soon

the late meeting at Spokane is to cre

This fell Is to aw
presented to congress, and to the leg
islature of British Columbia after the
opinion of the mining associations of
California, Utah and Colorado shall
have been taken.
Another feature Of the association
Is the opportunity of forming the ac
quaintance of 'mining men from the
several districts, and the dissemina
tion of reliable Information concern
ing the mines, the ores, methods of
working, the reduction plants and
the worth ot different pieces of min
ing machinery.
The second vice-president of Wash
ington county ' Is D. M. C. Gault,
Uillsboro, and, while there are no
mines yet operated in the county,
there are known to be good prospects
of economic ores. It Is, perhaps, well
to keep In touch with other sections
of the state, where rich, precious ore
beds do exist, and be prepared to
help In the matter of desirable legis
lation, if not otherwise.

To the Editor: Only recently I
learned that during the year past,
and now, there is a story circulating,
to the effect that the Sheriff' Associ
ation of Oregon, through Sheriff
Knight, of Marion county, at the Jatt
session of the legislature, paid to me
the sum of ;imi as a bribe to have
the Sheriffs' Mileage Bill enrolled.
I have carefully sifted over every
thing that has been said, and, as yet,
am not satisfied that I could main
tain any suit for blander. The law,
as construed by ovt courts, is very
liberal or lenient with all oral abuse
of this character, and it seems prac
tically useless to undertake a case for
slander unless the evidence Is iu
writing, or very strong corroberative
oral evidence can be secured; so it
leaves the slanderer practically free
to utter the most libelous matter
about another, without serious conse
quence to himself.
If the sheriffs were sponsor for
these stories, for the purpose of forc
ing them into a position where they
must, in writing, answer, I Inserted
In the Salem dailies, the following
To John Knm.ht, Sheriff ok
Marion County:
Sheriff Ford, of Washington Coun
ty, has circulated a statement that
you, as representative of the Stier ill's'
Association, at the last sessiou ol the
legislature, paid me the sum of WOO
as a bribe to get the sheriffs' mileage
bill enrolled. Did .you or did you
not? If you will altirm it, opportun
ity will be given you to Im heard iu
defense. II. V. Gates.
Now, I absolutely and emphatic
ally deny ever having received, my
self or through joy agent, any sum
of money from any sheriff, or their
association, or ngeiit, for enrollment
of any bill, or for any service or as
sistance of any character whatever.
Early In the session of last year,
the Sheriffs' Association caused to lie
Introduced, House Bill No. 14,
known as the SherinV Mileage Bill.
From the beginning, 1 opposed it,
went to the sheriffs and frankly told
them that I would. It passed its
first reading, and, on January 28th,
came to its second reading. Repre
sentative after representative carried
motions through to exempt Jheir
counties - from its provisions. The
house was in an uproar of jeers, jokes
and slurs cast at it, no one had the
temerity to defend It, and finally, to
quiet, matters and stop the loss of
time, a motion was carried to cut off
all of the bill except the enacting
clause, and so it readied the commit
tee. Shorn and disgraced, with only
a title page left,l we supposed it dead
forever. Was it ? Twenty-two days
later it came up again for final pas
sage, the same bill, but In lamb's
clothing of an amendment, which
did not change its previous character.
Four counties were exempted from
its provisions, which, aa it afterwards
developed, practically cut off their
opposition. The vote on final pas
sage stood, thirty-nino ayes, nineteen
nays, two absent. Twelve of the
ayes were from exempted counties.
On the last day T the session, it
passed the senate with .twenty ayes,
seven nays, three ubsent. Seven ol
the ayes were from exempted coun
ties, so la the house and senate, it
required the vote of the exempted
counties to carry the bill.
After a hard, bitter light, disgusted
and beaten, I, among others, went l
Gov. Lord and requeued hi in to give
the bill a generous consideration tie-
fore approving it. As his veto clear
ly outlines some of my reasons for
opposing it, I insert the sime:
To the Legislative Assembly
I caunot approve house bill 11,
authorizing sherifls to collect mile-
age. In view of the present state of
the law, the salaries of these officials
were intended as comiM-nsalion for
the services which they were required
to perform, in lieu of fees and mile.
age. The object of the law was to
abolish the fee system, which In
cluded mileage. By the present law,
It is proposed to give mileage to
sheriffs in addition to their salaries,
which were intended to cover them
This is in coullict with the declared
will of the people on the subject. If
the saliiries were, for any reason, not
sufficiently compensatory, they
should bo fncrcastsl to an amount
commensurate with tliclr duties or
services required to lie performed In
this way. Just compensation would
be secured to these officers, and the
evils of a return to the fee system
avoided. Mileage, it is thought, lur
nishes a cover for the worst ahuses f
that system, for these reasons only
require me to veto the bill.
W. P. Lord.
These sheriffs were elected and
qualified on a full understanding
that their salaries should suffice as
compensation for service, that the
fee system was pnh tically abolished,
and the saliu-y system substituted in
lieu thereof. The sheriff of a county
like Washington, through remaining
fees and salary, receives, approxi
mately, (100 to (.UK) monthly, besides
an allowance lor deputy hire. Some
times be Is taken Iroin a walk in life
where he had been contented If re
ceiving one-tenth of this amount.
In the press reports of the Oregonian
of November 21(h, last year, a dis
patch from Salem, In sutwtanee says:
"The sheriffs of Oregon have got a
grievance against Gov. Lord for ve
toing the miUago hill, and at the
next slate convention of the thirty
tao sheriffs and their deputies, all
would be on band witli every influ
ence todefeit him." Was coerclof.

scattered broadcast. An election is
nearing. My friends have been urg
ing me to ruu the race for senatorial
Honors. This explains, in a measure,
my challenge as above quoted.
Whether in the race or not, I court
tha strictest inquiry into my conduct,
at Salem. Going back over its rec
ord, find some things done which
should not have been done, and
things undone which should have
been done. "To err is human." I
have, as a legislator, tried to merit
the approbation of my ople.
Proud in the knowledge of grxd
work performed and pledges kept, I
am willing to he Judged on my rec
ord, but want an impartial trial and
not to be judged by those who seem
ingly only desire to condemn, regard
less of facts. II. V. Gates.
A Washington dispatch of Wed
nesday last states that surprising re
sults were obtained at a test of shells
at the ludiau Head proving grounds
ou Tuesday last and if these shall
be confirmed by further experiments,
our navy, which already possesses
the best armor-plate iu the world,
will have by far the beat armor-penetrating
shells, and both of American
invention. What was done Tuesday
at the proving grounds was to fire a
cast-steel shell of six-inch caliber en
tirely through a seven-inch Harvey
ized nickel-steel plate, through the
heavy oak backing and twelve teet
into the bank of clav behind.
This performance has 'never been
equaled by any projectile of like call
her iu the world. Naval experts are
much pleased with the test. They
say these cast-steel shells i-an be
made for much less than the ex pen
sive forged-steel armor-piercing shells
that they can be made much more
quickly, and that they appear to be
superior in every resicct.
Mr. Gates, lu Ins explanatory arti

in his estimate of the salary paid to
the sheriff of Washington county
since that officer gets, including the
