Important Injunction Suit.
The Southern Pacific R. R. Com
pany have brought a suit by their at
torneys, Weatherford & Wyatt, asking
for an injunction restraining the city
of Albany from improving Ninth
street ou Iheir property where the rail
road truck crosses the street, just
northeast of the depot, also asking for
an order decluring a lein of $51 15 in
all on the property of the road, con
sisting of several specified lots, for
assessment, null and void.
In the onmplaint the plaintiff de
clares that the property has never
been dedicated to public use except for
right of way aud for depot grounds,
and thut it is private property. One
defense Is that the city has falsely and
maliciously and iu fruud of the rights
of the plaintiff was without luw. The
complaint covers about twenty type
written pages. The suit means a big
expense to the city. Democrat.

A DETERMINED SUICIDE.
Mrs. Elizabeth J. Bond Kills Herself by
(From the Albany Herald. Sept. 30.)
The citizens cf Alhanv and T.lnn
county were terribly shocked yester-
aoy morning to hear that the aged
widow of Mr. Nathan Bnnrl. Mm
Elizabeth J. Bond, had committed
suictaeat the residence of her son,
Albert Bond, seven miles east of
Albany near Knox Butte. The par
ticulars as learned are that the seed
lady had been in the habit of going to
me wooas near a neighbors for leaf
mold for her house nlants. and there
tore her absence from the house was
not particularly noted by her daughter
-in-law until it had srrown dark, when
the neighbors, heded by Mr. G. W.
Kutne, whose residence Is the closest,
the others taklne nart beinir Messrs
Joseph Wilson, John Bell and Mr.
rowncr, proceeded with all haste to
make search, hut it was 1 o'clock in
the morning before the body was
found. At about 10 o'clock Mr. Albert
Bond returned from Albany, but was
in sucn a staie or intoxication that be
was incapable of realizing the serious-
ness of the situation, and was put to
uea witnout being informed of the
absence of his mother.
When the bodv was found life was
extinct. Mrs. Bond was lying about
200 yards from the house iu an oak
grove near a leaning oak tree, under
wnicn stood a bucket, having a board
laid across it. .Around her neck was
noosed one end of a small sized rnnn. It
apparently havine been her Intention.
if the poison she had swallowed failed
in its ratal work, to fasten the other
end of the rope to the leaninir tree after
stepping upon the Bucket, kick the
uucitei to one side and thus hang her
self. But it was unnecessary, as the
noison had done ita work effectually..
The poison used was supposed to be
arsenic contained in wheat prepared
to kill squirrels, some of which waB iu
the house, and it was found, ton. that
a paper of arsenic kept in the house,
nad neen opened. A few grains of
poisoned wheat were found on the
ground where she lay, and also a phial
containing some liquid.
A messenger was sent to Alhanv
and a telegram dispatched to Coroner
c. tf. wrignt, at Harrlsburg, catching
him In time to take the overland train '
for this city, where he nrocured a team I
and went to the scene of the tragedy.
Dr. M. H. Ellis was also called, and
word sent to the two daughter of thej
deceased, Mrs. Lewis Cox, of Waits
burg, and Mrs. Dr. John Reed, of Leb
anon. A jury wasemoanneled conslatlnir of
Mart Miller, foreman, Frank Trites,
J. R. Carlisle, Smith Cox, Lewis
Zullsdort and Ed Chambers, and a
thorough lnvestieallon was made.
The verdict of the jury, after hearing
the evidence, was that the deceased,
Mrs. Elizabeth Bond, came to her
death from poison administered ru

Linn County Republican's.
Jos. N. Davis returned yesterday
Irom Linn county, where he deliver
ed four speeches last week, under the
auspices of the republican state cen
tral committee, in the interest of sound
money. He says the republicans of
Linn are earnestly working to carry
their county for McKinley and,
Hobart. At Lebanon he was unable
to find any Bryan men who were out
spokeu and aggressive In the cause of
populism and free silver. This may
be accounted for by the fact that the
paper mills are being run by the
O'Neil Bros aud Calahan, who have a
monthly payroll of (1200, and have
paid to the farmers in the last year
more than 10,000 for straw, to be
made Into paper. However, the
people in Lebauon say that the foot
hills east of there are full of populists.
We publish the above clipping from
the Oregonian to let the people see a
sample of the pretentions of the gold
bug press. This gentleman oume here
and spoke, That was all he did. He
made no oon verts for McKinley. His
speech was the poorest delivered here
during this campaign, and our repub
lican friends will admit the fact. The
majority of the voters here are un
doubtedly for Bryan. O'Neil Bio's,
don't ruu a political machine at their
mill. They are strictly businessmen.
If a poll of the mill employes was
had, a large majority of them, would
b for Bryan.
