SUPREME COURT DECISION.
It is Decided That Women Are Ineligi
ble to County Offices,
The supreme court at Pendleton ren
dered a decision which will take Miss
Ida Maxwell and fourteen other women
candidates from the present campaign
in this and other counties in Oregon.
In the case of the stute of Oregon ex
rel Carter vs Nellie M. Stevens the
court decided that Miss Stevens was
ineligible to the office of county school
superintendent. The decision quotes
article VI, section 8 of the constitution,
which provides, "No person shall be
elected or appointed to a oounty office
who shall not be an elector of the
oounty," and section 2 of article II, of
the same Instrument, which defines an
elector as a male citizens. "Hence,"
the oourt says, "it necessarily follows
that none but male citizens can be
elected or appointed for county offices.
Now, the office of superintendent of
0 immou school?, although not so men
tioned in the constitution, was, at the
adoption of that instrument and ever
since has been and is now, unmistaka
bly a county office. It is so named
and designated In the statutes creating
the office. Therefore, it follows thai
whatever views we may entertain as
to the propriety of the constitutional
provisions prohibiting the women
from holding county offices, we have
no alternative but to declare that under
the provisions of that instrument, as It
now exists they are ineligible to the
office In question, and that the act of
1893, as fur as it conflicts with the con
stitution, is void.' The judgment of
the court below Is therefore affirmed.
The Linn oounty republican execu
tive committee will meet in Albany
today and place a name on the ticket
intbe place of Miss Maxwell. Leba
non bos two aspirants for the nomina
tion, Kceney'i Whereabouts.
It will be remembered that a few
weeks ago we published a rather sen
sational article regarding James
Keeneyand a Miss Bobiuette. It Is
thought by many that Mr. Keeney
bad taken refuge In some distant
country, but such ib not the ease. He
is in hiding' near his premises, and
we are told will appear in oourt when
it convenes. We are also Informed
that he will prosecute those who en
dcayored to hold him with Winchest
ers when they had no warrant for his
arrest. Jim Keeney has a bard name
yet those who are acquainted with
him say that be is not the mau that
would allow his bondsmen to pay
three hundred dollars for his non
appearance. Beeently there was a
school meeting held iu the district in
which he is a director, and when one
of his son's said his father desired to
tender his resignation, someone said
the proper way for Mr. Keeney to do
would he to appear In person. Mr.
Keeney'sson said: "If you want to
see him I will pall to him to come
down; be Is right up there, but they
did not care about seeing him. The
fact of the busluess is that these fel
lows who claim to be looking for him,
do not want him, or else were too big
cowards to go after him. Brownsville

A correspondent of tbe Eugene
Guard says: We have crossed the Cas
cude mountains twice iu the last two
months, via the military route. We
first orossed over March 20th and there
was IS feet of snow on the summit.
We crossed again May 1st and found
20 feet of snow. Five feet of new suow
had fallen between March 20tb and
May 1st aud it was still snowing. Tbe
distance across the snow was 26 miles.
Usually, at this time of year, only five
or six feet of enow Is found on this
route aud only for two or three miles.
This means that the river will be good
boating until lute lu the summer and
that Portland will have hlyu chuck
about the middle of June.

SAWMILLS IN ALBANY.
Propositions Made to That City by Two
(From the Albany Democrat.)
Two saw mill propositions are now
before the people of Albany. Mr. J.
H. Decue has renewed his proposition
to establish a big saw mill in Albany,
this time directly to the citizens of
our city, A meeting of business men
was held In tho office of Judge
Hewitt at 10 o'clock Tuesday when
the following committee was appoint
ed with full authority to act In the
matter. Mayor Burkhart, L. Flinn,
J, K. Weatherford, N. H. Allen, H.
Bryant, W. F. Bead, D. B. Monteith.
A meetl.ig of the committee was held
and J. K. Weatherford was elected
president and N. H. Allen secretary.
The secretary was Instructed to con
duct the necessary correspondence to
meet the provisions of Mr. Dcuc's
proposition. Decile's proposition em
braces the establishment, of a saw mill
and barrel anil stave factory at this
city with a capacity of 100,000 feet of
lumber every ten hours. He asks for
a ten years contract with the O. C. A
K.R. B.Co. by which bis logs will
be brought from the front on the road
to Albany at $1 a thousand, and the
lumber from Albany to "California
points" at $4 a thousand, for a site free
for the mill at a suitable location and
for a ten years exemption from taxa
tion. The site will be furnished and
the best proposition possible will be
obtained from Mr. Hammond; but
nothing will be attempted us to the
taxation proposition which .will be
rejected. The supreme court has al
ready decided that such exemption
contracts are unconstitutional. Such
a mill will be of great benefit to our
city and nothing will be left undone to
make the necessary arrangements to
secure it. Mr. Decue, though, has a
five or six months oontract on the
Columbia which he will complete
before beginning active operations here
In case the satisfactory arrangements
There is good reason to believe that
J. C. tioodale will move bis mill from
Springfield here, It will be a smaller
mill: but Mr.Goodale is an experienced
njillman and the mill will be a credit
to the city and an important Institution

The readers of this paper will be pleased
to learn that there is at least one dreaded
disease that science has been able to cure in
all its stages and that is catarrh, Hall's
Catarrh Cure is the only positive cure now
known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh
being a constitutional disease, requires a
constitutional treatment, Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system, thereby destroying the foundation
of the disease, and giving the patient
strength by building up the constitution
and assisting nature in doing its work. The
proprietors have so much faith in its cura
tive powers that they offer one hundred
dollars for any case that it fails to cure,
