J A Two Year Old Matter The following
is from a Portland paper, one of the sensa
tional ones. We publish the item because it
will make interesting reading matter : "If
you want to kill a man, come on to Harris
burg, get him into a back room and into a
game of cards, pick a quarrel with him, hit
bim over the head with a billiard cue, lot
him lay until 3 or 4 o'clock the next morning,
then gather him up, take him out the back
door, carry him down to the rivei and throw
him in. When the body is found, the Cor
oner's jury will pronounce it a case of sui
cide. That's the way Ford was murdered.
Everybody knows that he was killed in just
that way, but the criminals have not been
disturbed. A petition was prepared, asking
the governor to offer a reward for the mur
derer, but it was six mouths in getting to
A Story. For the first time in many
years the County Treasurer is obliged to en
dorse county warrants, "not paid for want of
funds." The use of that stamp reminds us of
a story that George Waggoner tells on him
self. Some years ago when he was in the
real estate business and had Mr Buford, the
then County Treasurer, for a partner, a gen
tleman stepped into their office and present
ed a bill for a few dollars. Georgejwas then
pretty hard up ; he quietly reaohed for the
Treasurer's rubber stamp, which read "not
paid for want of funds" and before the gen
tleman knew what was the matter, stamped
me Din witn tnose words, it was (tone so
coolly that George says his oreditor thought
that was the course of business and left the
offioe without a word and did not present
the bill again for a year Benton Leader.
Thb Chicago of tub N. W. The fol
io wing from the Buena Vista correspond
ence of the Independence West Side shows
the writer to be u man of great discern
ment. The route he maps out for the As
toria road is the one we had also surveyed
and it Indicates to us that Albany, Buena
Vista, Independence and Dallas must work
together In the matter: "We do not claim
to be a commercial center, the head of nav
Igatlon, nor even democratic ; but we knew
we have hopes that the Astoria railroad
will come through our town on Its way to
Albany. We believe Albany is to be the
grand railroad center of the Willamette
valley, the unicagoot me iNormwest. ine
topography of the country plainly Indi
cates it. A glance at a map of the valley
shows Albany to be nearest the center of
the valley, accessible to the pass through
the Cascades, and near an ocean outlet,
that with a little attention can -be made a
safe harbor for heavy vessels. All this we
believe to be possible and probable. The
route is a good one, roadbed superior, pass
through the hills the best, everything first-class."
Was He Robbed. We understand that
when Barney Bressler, the tailor, who was
sent to the Insane asylum last week, came
to Albany he had about $70 on his person.
He went into a saloon one evening, and he
asserted afterwards was drugged and robbed
of his money, and it is quite possible that
is the case, as it is reported to be freguent
ly the case in this city. At the same time,
whatever the cause, Barney became pretty
Insane and of course his word would not be
taken in a court of justice. It Is a fact,
though, that he had $70 and that it disap
peared. We simply give this version in
order to keep our readers posted on cur
rent matters in the city.
Untrue. Mr. C. G. Rawlings, agent of
the O. R. & N. at this city, says the item
copied from the Corvallis Gazelle in our is
sue of Saturday, In reference to there being
a case of small pox on the river steamer
Occident, was absolutely untrue. He took
pains to see the officers of the boat about it
ana tney pronoonced it a canard from be
ginning. The QazcAc will confer a favor
by informing us what its reliable authority
was. The Democrat published the item
simply because it is here to let the public
Know wnat people are saying and doing.
Odds Too Much There are about
twenty-five persons in Albany who invest
in Louisiana lottery tickets every month
over $100 a month being sent out of the
city to be placed in the pockets of this
grandest of jJAmerican swindles, besides
which wheels of fortune are insignificant.
Prizes are rarely really drawn anywhere,
most of those published as drawn not being
drawn stall. Inseveralyears$iohasbeen
received at Albany, where several thous

Almost a Collison. This morning
just as the California train approached the
depot from the South, Baggage Master
Barker's head light loomed up from the
North with the baggage truck, coming in
at a rapid rate. Through a slippery man
ipulation of the rudder the truck went off
on lo the track. The moment was a crit
ical one ; but the engineer of the train was
equal 10 me occasion and stopped just in
time to save a collision. Mr. Barker has
been overwhelmed with congratulations
during the day.
Great Gobblers. People who want
woolen mills, etc., but want other people
to get them. Men who gobble up all the
land they can get and then want double
price for it even for factories. Cows that
will not even leave the cabbage box. Boys
at an entertainment wno want all theatten
tion themselves. Men who get maJ be
cause everybody doesn't patronize them,
Selfish people generally.
A Chestnut. "Stand up there and let
me see If you are square with the house,"
said one drummer to another, while wait
ing for the five minute slow train at the
depot, as he elevated Surveyor Fisher's
compass, and sighted at his companion.The
best physicians were called and it is thought
Seals will recover.
A Steam Laundry. Mr. J. D. Smith, an
experienced laundrymau,has started a steam
laundry on Third Street, near the 0. P. rail
road, lie proposes to do as good and oleaner
work than the Celestials, and just as cheap,
taking family washings for the same priee.
He is aatitled to the patronage of the citizens
of Albany. This is a good opportunity for
peoplt to show the appreciation of a white
nan's efforts against the Celestial. We be
lieve from what we can hear that Mr Smith
will give as general satisfaction, it aot better
than the Celestials. .
That Debate. In the secular debato be
tween Underwood and Braden at Silverton,
T W Davenport, of Portland is grand chief
moderator, with J W Beale and J M Hum

city hall is tilled to hear these gentlemen.

Editors Democrat : .
In a recent issue of your paper I notice a
communication signed a Tax-payer, In
which the writer wants to know something
about what is being done by the City Coun
ell as to granting gas work privileges in
this city. I am somewhat interested in this
matter also. I think Mr Tax-payer, has
struck the right nail on the head. I for one
think this is a matter of very great impor
tance to every tax-payer and in fact every
citizen In this place, for if we wish to have
a city that will flourish we must not crush
out enterprise and competition, for this Is
what makes any city and should the City
Council at their next regular meeting not
give the proposed gas works an equal show
with our electric light system then we will
be left again in the dark. Let us have the
gas system also if we can get It, as we
want a uttie competition in this matter as
well as all others,
