On last Sunday afternoon Rev. J. R.
Kirkpitrick offered his resignation as
pastor of the V. P. Church at this j
place for the present. His reason was
partly on account of the work he has
undertaken at Seattle, but principally
on account of his health.
James O'Brien, who robbed the Cot
tage drove poetofflee of ten dollars,
and attempted to blow open tho safe,
plad guilty In V. 8. Court at Portland

sires all members to be present, and all

vited to attend. At 7 r. M a program

we hope none will fail to hear. Let
there be general rally for missions.
An Ellensburg paper says snow on
the mountain ranges and in the valley
of the Columbia Is reported deeper
than for many years past, and cattle
arc dying by the hundreds. The snow
In the Dig Bend is I we feet deep, and
on the mountain from three to six feet.
About .1000 head of cattle are still on
the range; the streams are froxen over;
there Is nothing for them te eat, and
unless tbey sre rounded up and driven
out averyons of them will die.
Our homely but strong friend will be
appreciated In time as a medicine, and
if agriculturist would tur-.i their at
tention to raising a model onion, with
the utrong scent taken out of it, families
would be throwing pill to the dogs,
and the doctors would turn their atten
tion to onion farming. Said a doctor :
"J always store a barrel of onions in
my cellar during tho fall. We have
them twice a week, and If any one of
tho family Is threatened with a cold
that party eat onion raw. If this
vegetable were generally eaten there
would be no diptheria, rheumatism,
gout, kidney or stomach trouble."
The immense quantity of snow that
hn fallen, particularly in the moun
tains, during the winter, will make the
advent of spring awaited with no little
curiosity, if not solicitude. What will
happen when those huge snow-drifts
al'gin to melt away is a question that
is susceptible of exciting Interest. It is
probable, however, that the only result
will Ixt the continuance of high water
In the rivers, creeks and smaller
stream further into the summer than
usual, and the abundance of water for
all purjMtses. Heavy falls of snow in
the uiotintain usually contribute t
the prosperity of tho people and are
rather to be desired than feared.

The operation of tho new jury sys

be Watched with considerable interest
throughout the country. It is the first
attempt to test In a modified form the
Prussian system which permits a ma
jority of a jury to. rcndei a verdict in
criminal cases, the punishment being
scaled from the maximum in propor
tion to tho number voting for the ver
dict. Tliiw is a departure in the Hue of
reason and common sense which com

of Police Hoffman on a charge of poly,

His wife, who resides at Roseburg,
also F.llen Heard, of Tangent, a grass
widow, whom he married about four
weeks ngo, appeared in court. Bell did
not attempt to deny his crime and
waived examination. He was held to
await the action of the grand jury, his
bonds being placed at 2000. In de
fault of this amount he was lodged in
Bell said In court that his name was
Frank John Bell, although his name
In the marriago license was given as
Frencis P. llell. He aeems to have
made a profession of marrying one
woman after another, and had letters
In his possession from women in vari

to advertisements of hi inserted for

court, and ought to have hied himself

well on his why to the penitentiary.

gon, Dr. J. N. Gilbert
This is a sad blow to our community.
The doctor bad won the esteem of the
people his genial and amiable manners
and Christian deportment, as well as
by proving himself a master of hi pro
fession. His advent among us was
hailed with joy, as w e had long felt
the need of a resident physician. He
was soon busy ministering to the sick
and afflicted, and in his anxiety to
relieve the suffering exposed nimself
to the late stormy weather almost day
and night, and was stricken down
himself, and after a few day of suffer
ing; yielded to the stern messenger
The news of his death shocked the
whole neighborhood. So one was ex
pecting it. It was hard to believe.
The funeral services were held in the
Evangelical church at this place, where
many cougrgated to have one last
look at the one whom they had learned
to resject. The tears that flowed so
freely testified in silent but unmistak
able language of the high esteem in
which he was held by this people. He
leaves a wife and child to mourn his
loss. Thin excellent Christian lady is
deserving the sympathy of this entire
community. A Fhiejcd.
IX THE NIGHT UIUKCTIOX.
' A bill htpi just been introduced in
congress requiring one-half of all in
ternal revenue taxes collected in oach
state to be turned over to its treasurer
for state purposes.
This is a move in the right direc
tion. If the federal government is de
termined not to repeal the internal
revenue laws, but to perpetuate that
corrupting and demoralizing system,
whether the republicans or democrats
are In power, then by all means, a the
government is collecting nnnuall more
than a hundred millions in excess of
expenditures, let a portion f this
fund be handed over to the states from
which It is collected, to go Into the
state treasuries, and to that extent
relieve the people. In most state the
federal government collects annually
about one million and a half more
thau enough to pay all state and coun
ty taxes. If the federal government
will nut stop collecting this tax under
any clreu instances, surely it cannot
refuse to return to the states a portion
of v. hut it takes from them and can find
no use for.
