Imi'OKtant. If Edison's electric
jiroeesa of reducing ores and of sav
ing gold from the tailings of mines
lias the merit now claimed for it, the
discovery is worth million of dollars
to Coos and Curry counties. Tho
black sand deposits so extensive here,
that barely pay wages under tho usual
process of working, would, under thnt
treatment, bo immensely rich. Bomo
one should send him a sample of gold
bearing black sand from our mines,
and see if it will not result iu u mo
in black sand stock.

Kiib. Coast Maii,. I send you tho
following ileum from our neighbor
hood : Tho Republican County Con
vention was held at Kllcnsburg on
Saturday last, and tho following nom'
luations wcro made: For Joint Rep
resentative, Rawley Scott, n resident of
the southern portion of the county;
County Judgo, Capt. Cooloy; Coin,
mlssioucrs, 0. Jensen, of Port Orfonl,
and Scott of Chctcoj County
Clerk, Walter Button ; Treasurer,
M. II. Gibson ; Sheriff, Wm. Gaunt-
lott; Assessor, John Miller; Coroner,
T. Cunningham ; Delegates to State
Convention, M. Riley, nud Thomp;
son, iu It. D. Hume it Co's employ.
While the above ticket is no doubt ac
ceptable to our southern neighbors, it
will not meet with general approval
In this end of the county. It is a
marked fact that not a single ofllco has
been allotted to this cud of tho coun
ty, notwithstanding that our dele
gates insisted upon our claim to such
consideration. Tho consoquenco of
such action will bo that the Republi-J
cans in this neighborhood will feel
slighted ; ami if tho Democrats had
made belter nominations than they
have, there is not tho slightest doubt
but many Republican voters would
prefer a good Port Orford Democrat to
a Houth end Republican. Especially
for such offices as have a great local
influence. "A dog fighls best near
his own door."
Of the personnel of tho Democratic
ticket you arc no doubt informed. Af
ter the nominations became known a
prominent Democrat gave it as his
opinion that " there is neither head
nor tail to it.". Sinco then it is ru
mored that some of tho nominees
have refused to accept, m it is proba
ble that the middle portion of the an
imal has also dropped out, and the
thing must present a melancholy
spectacle indeed. Jn conversation
with Democrats, niton inquiry " how
do you liko your ticket?" tho uni
versal answer is a groan, deep mid
painful, as if proceeding from the
bottom of their pockets.
Of course you know wo hnvo a har
bor of refuge heie. A boat was dis
patched from Klleneburg to Crescent
City, under command of T. Cunning
ham, with two or three other men in
it. Having accomplished their busi
ness iu Creccent City, they stiy-tcd to
return ; but the heavy north winds of
last week compelled them to seek
shelter iu some covo near Chetco.
While lying there, their stock of pro
visions and water gave out; a landing
was effected and a supply of muscles
and water obtained on a rock. On
Saturday last, however, a strong south
Custer sprung up, and they had to get
out. Upon arriving at tho bar out.

A correspondent ,of tho Crescent
CllyC'owrcr, writing from Ellonsburg
insinuates that tho numerous wrecks
that havo occurred nt tho mouth of
Roguo river lately, are attributable to
something besides tho ordinary dan
gers of navigation. Roforring to tho
enso of tho Varunn, ho says: "'Wo
understand that no blnmo in attached
to Capt. Graves for the mishap, but to
tho engineer, who it is said did not
understand his business (but perhaps
ho did). R. D. lliuno has boon re
markably unfortunate in regard to
wrecks, and, strange to say, this ill
luck docs not extend beyond Hume
it Co. The schooner Mute has mado
sovoral voyages to Roguo liver wilh
perfect safely, and tho George Hurley,
under tho command of Capt. Ross,
has crossed tho bar twice this winter
with jKJifect ease ; and how it is that
any vessel but II. it Company's can
enter Rogue river in snfety, while his
aro invariably stranded, is boyond the
comprehension of tho Rogue river
people. Somo of us think Roguo riv
or a curse toll. I). Hume, and vicevcrta
while wo all join in a general belief
that if ship-owners arc going to con
tinue sending their old vessels up
hero to bo stranded nt Rogue liver,
it will he prudent for insurance com
panies of San Francicco to sond an
agent up hero to look after their in
terests and seo that their rights aro
not infringed upon." It is true that
tho lalo succession of disasters at
Rogue river have been alike unfortu
nate to tho reputation of the harbor,
and to tho interests of ship owners
and insurance companies, but tho in
sinuation that vessels have been wil
fully cast ashore and wrecked there,
appears to be unwarranted by the
facts. If there is evidence to support
tho charge, a proper investigation
should bo had and the guilty parties

Tho case commenced in 1870, by tho
United States against tho Democratic
sachem, Samuel J. Tildcn, to recover
money which ho fraudulently refused
to pay in taxes under tho revenue
law during a few years previous, still
drags along, Tildcn resorting to every
possible means of delay :
A Washington telegram to the New
York Tribune says ; Upon tho appli
cation ol ox-Governor Tildon's coun
sel the trial of tho Tildcn income tax
suit has been postponed until Novem
ber next. Tho Government cannot
possibly by this procooding loso any
advautago which it may now possess:
and it may gain very important ad
vantages. Six or eight months ago
the Government filed a bill of discov
ery, to which Mr. Tilden's counsel de
murred. Tho court below decided
that he was bound to answer the ques
tions propounded, and his counsel ap
pealed from this decision to the. Su
premo Court of tho United Slates,
which has not yet rendered its decis
ion. If the case bhould bo tiied now
tho Government would havo to forego
any advantage which it may expect
todeiivc from tho information to be
obtained through tho writ of discov
ery. If tho case be continued to No
vember, tho counsel for tho Govern
ment expect that the Supreme Court
will decide in its favor, and that thoy
will, in addition to tho evidence now
in their possession, the additional evi
dence which will bo contained iu Mr.

Herald of tho Oil, says :
Tho storm inw raging is undoubt
edly tho worst on stock wo've had.
For three dnys tho wind has been
blowing from tho south, with a con
stant and at times a very severe storm
of snow falling, which melts almost
as fast as it falls, containing all the
damaging qualities of both rain and
snow. If it continues thus for a few
days longer, it will occasion greator
loss among stock than all tbo former
storms of tho wintor combined. It
seems tho olomonts nre combining for
tho complete demolition of tho stock
business. Everybody has tho blues,
and with good and sufficient reason.
It is a foregone conclusion that the
damago to all classes in this country
will bo so great as to mako times very
hard for some years to come. Money
is as scarce as fqt beof, and thoso who
have a few dollars cling to them as
though thoy nuvor expected to got

another soigo is just beginning.

Tho Atlorlan says tho Sonnto Com
merce Coinmittoo has reported ad
versely tho bill creating the customs
district of Southern Oregon nn in
spection district and providing for the
appointment of inspector of hullnand
boilcis. It is probable that tho Son
ato Cominittco on Cominerco dis
poned of this subject by tho easiest
molhod, and that little if any atten
tion was paid to tho subject after it
reached their bauds. It is certain
that tho present condition of things
is productive of groat hardships upmi
our commercial interests, and there
should be a remedy provided. It is
probable that this adverse report will
have tho effect to kill the measure
in Congress, but thoro is nnothor way
in which the existing inconvenience
can be obviated.
Section 1111 of the Revised Statutes
provides that in addition to the in
spectors required to be appointed for
tho several districts, the Secretary of
tho Treasury may appoint in such
districts, whon their services arc actu
ally required, " assistant inspectors,"
etc. If tho "Willamette" district is
to bo kept at its present s'mc, experi
onco has shown that there is neces
sity for assistant inspectors to reside
and attend to tho duties iu Southern
Oregon. It is to bo hoped that the in
terests of this important portion of
the State will not bo disregarded iu
this matter; and that by the appoint
ment of assistant inspectors, the Sec
retary of the Treasury will give us the
just recognition that Congress has de

Constitution did not authorize the

the State reached 200,000, and that at
the lime whon said act was pascd the

The process of saving gold by
means of electricity promises to bo
ono of tho most important as well as
tho profitable of alljEdison's discove
ries and inventions. It was accident
ally discovered whilo ho was making
experiments in saving platinum,
which was tho sole object of his
search. Ho was surprised, and at
first not pleased with tho prominence
of gold as tho product of his experi
ments with the tailings from which
he hoped to obtain platinum, but
soon becoming convinced there was a
bonanza in tho tailings of tho great
California mines, he directed his
agent, Mr. MoLaughlin, to make con
tracts for tailings with various com
panies whoso mines havo been exten
sively worked, llo organized tho
"Edison Oro Milling Company," and
it is supposed that tho gold will bo
saved 'by this company out of the
tailings already secured, will be of im-
menso valuo.

Wo havo heard it mentioned that
Mr. J. M. Siglin, ono of tho publish

interesting item in tho last issuo of
this paper, referring to himself,
which of courso sets tho matter at
rest :
Its publishers belong to no clique
or ring; aro neither oflico seekers
nor oflico holders ; hence it daro be

As there is no probability of his
getting votes enough to elect him,
