MERLIN Jeff Gibaon Shoots Schon Bach- ler Through tha Heed with (x Winchester Rifle. On Friday evening between 5 and 6 o'clock, Schon Bschler who lived on Rogue river just below the mouth of Jump off-Joe creek, about four mile from Merlin, was shot and instantly killed by Jeff Gibson, a young man who was living upon aud farming the place adjoining B.ichler'f, known a the "Old Man Si ni pk ina' place." Tbe tragedy wa tlio culmination of a dispute of many year duration over the boundary line between the two farms. The only witness, lo the shooting wai Char. Van ltorn, who lives just seme the river from Bach ler ' and bii testi mony is deficient in that lie waa able to see only one of the parties at the time when the shooting took place. Van Dorn, according to bis testimony given at the coroner' inquest, was on the other side of the river and tome 400 yards distant from the scene of the tragedy. He taw Gibson coming down toward the river, armed with hit gun, a 30-30 Winchester. Gibeon had a canoe on the river, but it was fattened on the Bachler bank and Van Dorn supposes that Gibson was coming t a-k him, Van Dorn, to get the canoe, not wishing bimeelt to go on Bachler' ground alter it. Van Dorn heard Gib son call to so mo one, apparently to Bachler. lo "put down that gun," cr worda ol similar import. Gibson waa in plain sight of Van Doin but Bachler as not, there being tome tree Intervening. The men were tome 200 foet apart. Almost immediately after calling to Hachler, Gibson fired and Bachler fell. Van Dorn being then able to distinguish the prostrate form beneath the interven ing trees. Gibson then turned and walked some distance, paitly around bia vic'ini, and fired a second time. He then called to Van Dorn to come over, but the latter was tinalilo to crost the river until a boat waa sent lor him. Gibson immediately tin rendered him self to Ihe aiithoiitiet and wai brought to Giants Pot. The body of Bichler waa found on the line between the two farms. Both shot had taken effect; one in the center of the forehead, the bullet tearing away nearly all the back of the head, the other wound waa in the shoulder. From the position of Ihe wounds, it appears that tbe first shot was the instantly fatal one. Bachler'a gun waa found lying acruea hi body. It is an ancient single barrelled, niutz'e loidiug shot gun and wa loaded with a light charge of bird sbnt. The circumstance which caused the dispute and led up to the tragedy are tome hat peculiar. Many years ago, when the riimpkins homestead was taken up, there was a small fragment of land, a "lot," to which no title was acquired. This piece of land lay next to Ihe river and the Siiupkins farm completely enclosed it mi three sides. Years afterwaid, it waa discovered that the SimpkinB place enclomd a piece ol government laud and Bachler spore pri ated it for a home. Kver since that time lliore lias been friction between Bachler and the occupants of the K Hop kins place. The lines were, in dispute, Bachler claiming a strip about two rods wide beyond the boundary conceded to him. It is claimed that Bachler waa a man of nnairelsome disposition and that there wai constant friction between him and hi neighbors. Uu the day before he shooting, he waa in Grants Past lo see what could he done toward settling tht boundary question, but had it seems, teceived little eatirfacliou. Returning borne in Iho evening through Merlin, angry anJ smi iiiU uu lor the iuflutnc of liquor, he made threats against Gibaou'a life in tlio presence of several wilnesret. Gibson was warned and was in ail probability worked up to a high pilch of nervousness and xciteuient by the ihrea's of Bachler. Bachler was a native of Get many and about 00 years of ago. He haves a wife. Gibson came here recently from the Willamette valley. He Is a man held in good esteem by his acquaintance!, He hat a family, a wife and two small children. Information agaimt Gibson was filed in the circuit court on Tuesday and bis trial will probably be held on Thursday Ladies Cn Wear Shoes One aiie smaller ulier using Allen's Foot F.sse, a powder to be shaken into the shoes.

Ever lines the passage of the oleomar garine law the senate bat devoted itself to the Bubject of Chinese exclusion and, while it is assumed when the measure wai called up that two or three days would suffice to dispose of the matter, no vote will be taken until Wednesday and the outcome it siore problematical than it wat a week ago. Senators Hoar, Dilliugham, Uallinger and Cullom have all declared themselves opposed to tbe present measure ou one ground or another and It is regarded at quite possible that the result will be the adoption of the amendment offered by Senator Piatt and which consists of tuhelituting the Geary law for the present bill and re-enacting that. On laat Tuetday the house tegan its consideration of the Cuban reciprocity bill and bai been debating Ihe subjact ever since. A the debate hat pro ceeded the opposition ha dwindled and it iB generally conceded that the measure will pas without amendment. Tbe policy of the friend of the bill in pre venting Ihe setting of a date on which to vote ha been proven judicious as tbe member who opposed the bill have wearied of the long debate and have lost interest. It U now predicted that a vote will be taken on Thursday of this week. So far the discussion ha been characterized by tome very able speech es, nolably those of Messrs. Payne, Grosvenor and Long and it ha been a matter ol interest that Ihsse speeches have been a'most entirely directed at the opposing factious ol the republican, little attention having been paid to the democrat of their contention. An interesting aession in tbe senate last Friday wa precipitated by Senator Depew who had. during the morning ncwirs on liiurtday, taken occasion to express bit view on the proposed amendment to the constitution provid ing that senatora shall be elected by popular vote. Mr. Depew gave notice that he would move an amendment providing for lederal supervision ol elections of senator . and in to doing criticised the election laws in some outbern states, mentioning by name, Mississippi and Kentucky. On Friday afternoon Senator Blackburn of the latter state, replied to the junior senator roui New York and hi remark were tarcattic in tlia extiame but he at all time confined himself to purely parlia mentary utage. Wishing to d.my certaiu statements of the New York enator be laid, "It goe without saying that the truth it Innocent of any a p. pearanca Jn that lalement." The passage at arm between the senators imply demonstrated that men possess ing a fine command of English need retort to no profanity or Billingsgate to express their difference of opinion in most forcible terms. General Scbofleld appeared before ti e senate committee on military allam ons day last week and presented Ins testimony in regard to the proposed army reorganitalion bill. Among othir things he dated that the present general of the army, Mile, wat not on speaking term with the pretidanl ol the tecre- tary of war and clearly demonstrated the (utility of exacting the beat ad m in- istratiou of tha army nnder a system which made it practically compulsory upou the president to retain as hit chief subordinate a man with whom he could in no way sgiee. According lo General Scbofleld, the staff would serve to te lieve the secretary of war of the admin istration ol many detail for which hit tual civilian training hat not lilted him and the selection of a thief of stall by the president would insure har monious action between the commander-in-chief and the first military ollicer. The chancet of Pretideut Itoustvelt'l occupying the pretidental chair for some weekt longer, during hit first term, than any of hit immediate predecetsori t tin to bs growing. The nslional coinuiiHee appointed to consider the advisability ol changing the date of inauguration met here recently and determined upon the last Thursday In April at the most favorable dale. There are now forty three governor of state who hav accepted their appointment to the com mittee aud it seeuis probable that, by their combined tlfort, the necessary change In the constitution will be ac complished. Ai hat been pointed out, it is not only the danger to lbs health ol the oflicial who take part in an in auguration which will be ohv.atrj by the change to a date w hen the weather is more clement, but the health of many thousands of visitors who fl ic ta Wash Ington, and who, baing away from home, are often tbe most exposed. The president hat found in the pet Ion af Mr. Kohert J. Wynne, a lung time newspar correspondent of Wash ingtun, t first assistant postmaster gen eral and It it upecud that Mr. Wynne will assume the dutie of hit office by the first of May, Mr. Kooeevel. has also selected a succetsor to Tension Commissioner Kvant, Mr. Kugene K.

Uoosevelt bave returned from their trip lo Ihe Charleston tipoailioo and the former declare that he is much rested. There are few people ho And inch a journey rettful but it seems to be one of the president's characteristics that all he requires in the way of a rest 11 a change of activity. It It hoped that the presi dent'! visit may result in an Increased attendance at the exposition which has been falling far behind eipenses no- witlittaniling tbe eicelienc ol the et hibiti and the general arrangements.
