On Monday last Messrs. W liber and

They are driving men and no doubt

A Fkiqhtfci. Accidknt. On
Thursday of last week, tSeorge Weaver,
a single man, and brother-in-law of
Mr. John Unger, of this city, met with
a terrible, and what may prove a fatal
accident, five miles above Sweet Home.
The following we learn from Dr. J. A.
Lamlcrson, who was summoned to do
what could be done for the unfortunate
man: Mr. Weaver was sawing off a
log which lay uion another Iok, and
when the cut was completed, the log
he was sawing carened and struck Mr.
Weaver, knocking him about twelve
feet against another log, pinning him
fast, in which condition he lay forovtt
two hours until a gentleman passing
near by heard his cries, and relieved
him from his agonizing position. As
soon as possible he was hauled on a
hand sled to the house of Mrl P. B.
Calkins, where everything was done
to relieve his Intense suffering. On ex
amination the doctor found .the left leg
was fractured below the kneefc while
the right leg was broken and shattered
above the knee to such an extent that
amputation will lie necessary in order
tosave the man's life. Dr. Lamberson,
desiring an assistant in the case, Dr.
Courtney accompanied by Frank Bal
lard, of this place was sent up on Sun
day morning, but nothing iu the way
of performing the operation was done.
Mr. Weaver is an industrious and well-to-do
gentleman, and has tiie sympa

GRA-r Masque Ball. Through
courtesy of Mr. C. W. Watts, of Al
bany, secretary of the committee, we
have received an invitation to attend
a grand masque ball to be given by tiie
fireman of that place, February 22el.
He informs us that it is going to be a
i grand affair, that the Governor and
juelgcs of the supreme court have ao
eeptetl invitations and will be present.
He also states that the O. fc C. officers
have dceided to hold the Lebanon train
on that occasion if twenty or more per
sons will attend from this plaw. We
predict that number will go and help
to make the ball a grand success.
"Slowing Up." The O. & C. rail
road company are running their trains
very slow lately as a precaution against
accidents, since the late snow storm.
The snow in Shasta valley is about feur
feet deep, and still deeper in the Siski
you mountains. The trains from the
south are commonly behind scheniule
time, but that is far lietter than meet
ing accidents which a high rate of
speed would be likely to cause till the
road gets free from snow and
'Caution is the mother of safety."

Jordan served the papers on Mr. Nah

Shattuck to quash the service, on the

in this county. Since then it has been

TOLD BY CORRESPONDENTS
MR. BRYANT'S VIEWS.
Ei. IjEbanon Express: In your Is
sue of December 3d, 1887, you gave
tiie proceedings of the republican club
convention of New York ou the tem
perance question. You quote Mr. Jas.
P. Foster thus: "We propose nn organ
ization' that shall say to the saloon:
Be ye removed from olitlcs, you who
create paupers and Insanity and crim
inals, shall no longer wield the power
cf government in the land. Tills then
is the mission of the organization."
The question now hi who Is the
stronger In politics, Mr. Foster or Mr
Raster? Mr. Raster, in 1972, framed
what is commonly known as the Raster
resolution for the republican platform,
which was adopted at that time and
has been reaffirmed at every national
convention since. Paid resolution was
to discountenance all Hunday and pro
hibitory legislation. Now, If Mr. Fos
ter is successful In getting Ids plank In
the republican platform, Mr. Raster, t f
course will be compelled to lend his In
fluence to the democracy or some party
that will assist him in his business and
if It is tne democratic party, the ques
tion arises, where would the prohibi
tion democrats go to if there Is such
an "article" as a prohibition democrat.
We venture the assertion that not one
out of a hundred will unite with the
republican party on this Issue if they
should adopt it in their next platform.
It Is hardly reasonable to suppose that
such will be done when only four years
ago when Miss Willard (representing
the W. C. T. V. of America)" presented
a petition eleven miles long, asking the
convention lo adopt the measure, she
was treated with contempt and the pe
tition spat upon and trampled', under
We do not believe that the republi
can party will or can manage tills is
sue. It has been a gixnl party in its
but It has outlivod, its use-
fulness. It settled the slavery ques
tion and settled It right, and we might
say put the liquor question on the firm-
pat tiaois of any country in the world.
As for the demoemtic party we be
lieve It has had that sumptuary plank
ever since man existed, as when Adam
was placed in the garden of Eden and
forbidden to take of the tree of life, the
democratic party said, down with the
sumptuary laws. T. W. Brvaxt.
