farm, near Coquille City, returning from
his week's work yesterday evening, was
waylaid and attacked by John Oilman
near bis home, but succeeded in making

party from Coquille was immediately
organized and returned to the farm,.
where they finally found today the bod

bad been murdered, and the bodies bad
been buried near the house. A ready
made grave was also found for the hus

and the circumstances point conclusive
ly to their guilt.
Oilman wanted them to leave, which
they refused to do until the lease had

of immediatelynching, be confessed to
(l(jI;liprafe killing of the woman and

JOHN 1.. DRAGGED TO J A II.
Aft- an Exciting Struggle With the
Nashville Pol loo.-He Noon Re
gained III Liberty.
Nashville, July 11. When the Louis
ville & Nashville train pulled into this
city this morning, a crow J surged around
the car to see John L. Sullivan. A
rumor soon obtained circulation tnat a
requisition was in thehands of the po
lice, several cf whom had boarded the
car. There was some discussion and
hnaliy a struggle was seen in the car
and an officer reached over with hand
cuffs and seizing the slogger's arms,
pulled him out into the aisle. Sullivan
resisted and Muldoon put his head out
of the window and cried to the crowd:
"Gentlemen, I demand American pro
tection !" His patriotic wail was greeted
with a variety of responses. Sullivan
begged him to "knock the copper out,"
and others cried : "Hurrah for the Nash
ville police !" "Hit him with your club,"
After a brief struggle Sullivan was
taken from the car to a carriage. In the
scuflle he drew back to knock down a
policeman, when Chief Black stuck a
pistol in Jiis face and told him if he
struck he (Black) would, kill him.' The
officers next grabbed Charles Johnson,
of Brooklyn, Sullivan's backer, who re
sisted vigorously, but finally cried out
with pain. During all this scrimmage,
Muldoon sat quietly by and was undis
turbed. Cleary, Sullivan'sethersecond,
hid in the excitement, and Lynch
jumped oU the train. Only Johnson
and Sullivan were detained, though the
others were wanted. '
The arrests w ere made by the author
ity of a telegram from Governor Lowry,
of Mississippi, to the Nashville chief of
Sullivan has retained ex-Attorney-
General Washington, who says the offi
cers went beyond their authority and
cannot hold the men. Immediately an
attempt will be made to get the parties
out on a writ of habeas corpus. Gov-
ernor Lowry's telegram oners a reward
of $1000. ' It is believed that if released
Sullivan will be rearrested to secure time
for a requisition to be obtained. The
arrested belligerants are now in the po
lice station in conference with their at
torney. . .
AG. AIM AT LIBERTY.
At 3 o'clock Judge McAllister, of the
circuit court, heard the arguments in
Sullivan's petition for a writ of habeas
corpus. In rendering this decision the
judge was very emphatic in his declare
tion that to bold Sullivan longer would
be a most arbitrary act on the part of
the court; that the officers had arrested
him without a warrant or the authority
of the law; and that the -misdemeanor
was not extiaditable by the laws of the
Tennessee courts and by the precedents
of Governor Taylor. He therefore
ordered Sullivan released..
There was an immense crowd present
and the decision of the judge was greeted
with great applause. Sull'van and John
son went east by way of the Louisville
& Nashville tonight.
Marrled Women and Timber Land.
A matter of great interest to married
women in this state is a late ruling by
S. M. Stockslager, until recently com
missioner of the general land office,
which denies to them the right to take
up timber land under the act of June
1878. Prior to this ruling married women
possessing money in their own right
could select a quarter section of public
land valuable chiefly for htone or timber
and by complying with the provisions of
the act above mentioned, could purchase
such land from the general government.
Eut Commissioner Stock Pager's ruling
has changed all this and timber claims
of ugariTed women alrea taken up are
being held for cancellation and fegi&Uiis
at the various land offices in the state
have, since receiving this decision, re
fused to accept any more filings from
applicants who are married women.
The impression has gone abroad, be
cause JUr. isurney, tne register ol the
office at Oregon City, was the first to re
fuse to accept a filing by a married
woman, that it was a ruling made by
himself, personally, from which it would
be necessary to appeal to Washington.
To correct this impression, we quote a
portion of the original ruling:
"I therefore conclude that a married
woman cannot make an entry un
der the act oi June 3, 1878, in the state
of Oregon', and the entry of Delilah
Stukel is held for cancellation.
You will report to this office in due
time. Very respectfully,
S. M. Stockslager,
On June 22, the entry of Annie Oliver
son, of Astoria, Clatsop county, at the
Oregon City office, for the southwest
of the southwest J4 of section 23, town
ship 7 north, range 9 west, was sus
pended, and the entry held for cancella
tion by the now Acting Commissioner
W. M. Stone, who, in so doing, said:
"The testimony submitted shows her
to have been a married woman at the
time of making said entry, and therefore
not qualified, in the state of Oregon, to
perfect an entry under act of June 3,
While the registers of the land office
in this state are compelled to enforce
this ruling, it is believed, and all appli
cants are so assured, that the ex-com
missioner's decision in this matter will
be overruled by the secretary of the in
terrior upon an appeal soon to be taken
by Hon. L. T. Barin in a number of
cases now pending. There is no justice
in denying a married woman in Oregon

lost their lives in this city this after
noon under peculiar circumstances. A
watch was dropped in a cesspool and the
men were endeavoring to recover it.
They had dug a large bole at the side of
the pcol, and this hole was filled with
water by ruin. One man stood on a
ladder above the water and made an
opening into the cesspool, and the foul
air and gas rushed out and overcame
him, and he fell in to the water. A
friend went to give him aid and was
likewise overcome. Others came to
help, and one by one, seven men fell
into the water, which was full of muck
