It appoars that J. A. Yonkatn, of
Coos rlvor, who Is a conscientious
Democrat, and one of tho many who
do not think Lano a proper person to
fill tho ofllceof HborifVof this county,
had stated some facts that wcro not
calculated to Improve Lotto's chances
of success, Ho had. wo understand,
stated that Luno had expressed a do
sire to bo excused from associating
with tho workTiiginon at Sumner. Ho
had also culled attention to somo
grossly unequal assessments that
havo been made by Lano, as Assessor.
Lano called Yoakam Into tho hotel
and asked what lies ho had been
telling about him. Yoakam told him
ho had told no lies but had told tho
truth, which ho could provo. Lano
again accused Yoakam of lying, and
Yoakam relumed the compliment in
Iho strongest terms known to the En
glish language. At this stage of tho
game Lane struck at Yoakam with
his cane and Yoakam caught tho blow
on his arm, and the cano was broken.
Lano took hold of his pistol but could
not get it out, and Yoakam was com
mencing to administer corporal pun
ishment upou the Colonel with great
vigor, when Matshal Khodes interfer
ed and put a stop to tho fight. It is
possible that if Rhodes bad not been
present there would not havo been
enough loft of Lane in a few minutes
to bo voted for.
It appears that when Mr. Upton
at rived at Port Orford on his way
to Kllonsburg with his printing out

In tho last issuo of Iho News Rev.
Mr. Yeoman's, who hft.bocn accused
of making impr&por advances to a
married lady in this place, comes out
in a letter admitting tho acts to bo
substantially as havo been , alleged,
but pleading infatuation aj bin excuso.
Ho sums up his defense in tho follow
ing language :
To tho chargo of improper advances
and proposals, tho accused pleads not
guilty to that of gross indiscretion,
per statement ho knows, and pleads
tliathe is guilty. With this be rests
bis cause, fcclintr in the chambers of
his soul that God's verdict is a verdict
of guilty upon confession rendered
and yot a verdict subjoined with par
don. Ho says ho is not guilty of "improp
er advancos," yet admits that he, a
married man, proposed marriago to
another man's wife, and wnrmly press
ed bis suit. Wo know not where he
acquired his ideas of propriety; for
iiiany civilized community such a
proposition is an insult and Its accept
ance a crimo.
Ho avows his purposo to contimio
in the ministry, and speaks of tho
suggestions of tho Mail a being
"premature." Perhaps those sugges
tions wcro premature; but upon ma
ture reflection, and after giving full
force to all arguments that can bo ad
vanced in his defense, wo are moro
firmly convinced that they were cor
rect. Should ho go to somo other
part of tho country where his "indis
cretions" aro not known, ho might
still bo useful in the ministry, but to
remain hero and insist upon discharg
ing the duties of that sucrcd oflleo
would bo doing himself an injustice,
and humiliating this people and do

truo that ono of tho condition of the

BnarAirnxo of being elected on hi
merit, Mr. Siglin and Ida friends ar
now holding forth tho idea that he
should bo elected because ho is a law

for support. Tho best legislators that
our State has or ever has bad, have
been men liko Haynes, who aro hon

sometimes characterizes tho attorney.
It will bo an evil day for tho people?
when they placo tho legislative pow
