She Is now 57 years of age. At Ihe age

that took place there on the 27th of
November, 1847. In this Indian

and his brave, heroic wife was also a
victim of the tomahawk. Mrs. Warren
with 51 others were taken prisoners,
and were in captivity three weeks.

It will be remembered by our readers
that H. M. Beally receiver of the Linn
County National bank, commeneedlan
action against J: L. Cowan for $23,
299 60, and attached all the property
known ns the Bank of Lebanon, prop
erty, which was placed in the hands of
three trustees fon the security of the
depositors. Mr. Beall, as supplemen
tary to and in aid of that action, has
instituted a suit in the U. S. Circuit
Court against J. L. Cowan and W. B.
Donaca, J. M. Settle and J. A. Roberts,
the trustees, and the papers- were
served upon the defendants by .'Jt.fi.
Coleman, Deputy U. 8. Marshal; re
quiring them to appear In that court
on the 6th day of November, to answer
the complaint. At the same time the
Deputy U. S. Marshal served upon the
defendants an order made by Judge
Gilbert restraining them frouudoing
anything with the property pending
the litigation. Mr. Beall also seeks to
have a receiver appointed to take
charge or the property, and the de
fendants are required to appear on the
9th day of October to show cause why
this should not be done. The - institu
tion of this suit brings Into question
the legality or Mr. Cowan's tuition iu
turning over his property to secure the
depositors of the bank of Lebanon, and
will stop all present efforts of , the trus
tees to settle with them. The com
plaint of Mr. Beall not only questions
the legality of the transaction, but also
charges Mr. Cowan and the trustees
with bud faith, and with the attempt
to defraud the Linn County National
Bank. Noooe, acquainted with the
circumstances,. will for a raomernt be
lieve this, and. if the caw depended
upon that question alone there would
be no doubt as to the outcome. The
tiustees, we understand, will defend
their position and not permit it to go
by default. What the result will be is
hard to tell, as there are several very
close legal points involved, and it may
bo a long as well as a hard fight, but it
is to be hoped that the trustees will
save the little they have for the depos
itors rather than that it should all go
to the Linn County Bank, which was
practically J. L. Cowan's. We learn
that W. B. Donaca, one of the trustees,
and John M. Somers, one or the attor
neys, will go to Portland Saturday to
begin preparing for the defense.
Later Just as we go to press, Geo.
Humphrey. Deputy U. 8. Marshal, ar
rives in tne city and places another
attachment on the Bank of Lebanon
for the sum of $6,438.62, which amount
this bank owes the Bank of California,
at San Francisco. Nearly every day
brings something now to light and
verily, verily, the end is not yet.
