IT LOSES ONE,
IMPORTANT OPINIONS RENDERED
BY THE SUPREME COURT.
0. ft G, GRANT LANDS INVOLVED.
Company Moat Pay Judgment for VT,-
000 for Nonxnlfilment of -,
- .. . s Contract.
Decree of Lower Court Found Faulty
by Appellate Court and Other Case
Is Remanded for Further Proceedings
Involves Judgment for $21,619.
Two important opinions- were ren
dered by the supreme court yeaterdaj.
They are important on account of the
great sums of money involved in each
of them. Contracts of sale, of laads
granted to the Oregon k ; California
Railroad Company by the government,
by the act of congress of 1866, are in
volved in both eases, and, as a result
of the opinions renuered by the su-
frcme court, the company is obliged
o satisfy a judgment for $47,000 in
one of them, and may yet hate to pay
a judgment of $21,619 to the plaintiff
rn the other.
In the first ease mentioned, that of
Anthony- Nenpaeh, respondent, vs. The
Oregon & Calif ornia Railroad Company,
appenant, irom luunoman county, tne
plaintiff sued for damages to the
amount of $100,000 against the defend
ant for alleged failure to fulfil a con
tract for the sale of 3,200 acres of its
government grant lands.' He -secured
a judgment for $47,000 and the defend
ant company appealed. , The decision
of the lower court. Judge A. L. Fraser,
is affirmed by Justice Bean. After the
contract was entered into and the first
payment made by plaintiff, according
to the pleauings in the case, a contro
versy arose as to the ownership of the
land in question between the Oregon
& California Company and the North
ern I'acine as the land bad been given
to the latter company prior to the act
granting it to the O. A C. Co. Pending
the settlement of this controversy, the
O. u Co., by its land agent. Schulze,
refused to aceept any more payments
on toe contract, aitnougn tney naa been
tendered by plaintiff.
The dispute over the land was final
ly settled in favor of the O. k C. Co.
by the supreme court of the United
States. The plaintiff 1 then went to
wentuze ann oirerea to make nnai pay
ment upon the contract of sale; but
the latter? refused to accept it on the
ground that the plaintiff had neglected
to pay the installments when due. The
contract between Neppach and Schulze,
whereby it was mutually agreed to de
fer payments upon the land until the
controversy was settled, was of an oral
nature and the defendant company set
up the contention that Schulze had no
authority to dido tne company oy any
such agreement. The plaintiff brought
suit for damages for nonf uinlment of
contract and secure! a verrtict as stat
ed above.. In affirming the decision
of the trial court the appellate court
hous that Schulze was the recognized
agenV of the company and that he had
full authority to bind the company in
any agreement relative to the disposi
tion of such lands as were placed rn
his hands for sale.
The second case is similar to the first
one and involved a portion of the land
purchased by Ilimple and Neppaeh,
mentioned. i.am B. Moffett, Jr.,
trustee, was the paintiff and he brought
snit against the O. & i;o. to recover
$21,619 on a contract for the purchase
of 5,172 acres of land in the O. kV.
railroad irrant. The trial court gave
Moffatt a judgment for the amount de
manded, but several questions were
raised in the appeal as to the sufficiency
of the complaint. In reversing the de
cree of the lower court in this ease,
Chief Justice Wolvcrton finds that the
complaint was sufficient in all respects
but that it was an error to give judg
ment on the pleadings and remands the
case for such further proceedings as
may seem proper and consistent with
the opinim. Judge A. L. Fraser also
presided in this ease in the lower court.
Another' opinion was handed 'down
by the supreme-court, that of W. M.
Roberts is appellant and the 8. ?R.
Templetoir estate is the respondent, (in
which Justice Moore affirms the deci
sion of Judge! J. W. Hamilton of the
cirenU eourt for Lane - county. This
was a suit to compel specifie perform
ance of an oral agreement to convey
an individual share of real property.
The sopreme eonrt holds, upon the . oaly
important question hrvolved, that tak
ing possession ty a cotenant is not sdeh
a partial performance as will, entitle
the plaintiff to maintain the suit.

RUSH OF ' EARLY DATS WILL BE
REPEATED IN THE FRASER V
Shallowness of Water Holds Out Splen
did Opportunity to Placer Miners,
Who See in This Their Chance for
Splendid Strike in Gold Mining.
VICTORIA, B. C, April 17. Many
old-timers who were in the province
prior to the rush of 185S, and are able
to compare conditions then with those
which now prevail, think the present
year will sec one of the biggest Tushes
to the placer mining bars of the Fra
ser river that has taken place since the
great gold stampede of that year. The
snows upon the mountains at the head
waters of the Frase river are this yeaf
less than i they have been since the
memorable year of 1858. The greatest
depth d urine the past winter was four
teen feet, as opposed to an average of
thirtv-three feet in otbc years, and
a maximum depth of fifty-four ' feet.
There is no record of the depth, of the
snows on the mountains in the winter
of 18d7 and 1838, but it is thought that
it was about twenty feet, and the wat
ers of the Fraser will probably be even
mn.ru shallow than the v were in that
year when the bars of the upper reaches
of the river gave up their golden treas
ira thousand tdacer miners. '
Ever since then the high waters of
the Fraser have prevented any Individ
ual placer mining being done on them,
but this year Mill's bar, China bar;
Boston bar and all the other sand banks
lin the raaser wnose names are wnnen
wun leiiers oi K"1'1 uc
mining in this province, will be uncov
ered and opened to give up their stores
of gold, which have been accumulated
untouched since the rush or jsds.
"The little snow that there was at the
headwaters of the Fraser has nearly all
gone, and low as the watear of the river
now is, the indications are that it will
be little higher at any time during. the
coming spring or summer.
FALSE ALARM OF "FIJiE . RE
SULTS IN DEATH AND INJURY:
OF MANY NEWSBOYS.
Jammed Together is Narrow Hallway,
Waiting to Procure Free Tickets, at
Cry ' Newsies" Stampede and Crowd
Files on Stairs in Frenzied Mass.
INDIANAPOLIS, April 17.-Frcn-
zied by a false alarm of fire, several
hundreds of newsboys, who were strug
gling to obtain a share of free tickets
to a local tueater, which were Deing
distributed by a traveling representa
tive of a patent medicine ; company,
were stampe..v.'v. in a narrow stairway
in Mascmie temple tonight, crushing
the life out of four boys and injuring
twenty-sis. others, seven seriously. Long
before tne appmnrei time ior tne is
tributton of the tickets the "stailvay
was erowdel with -a pushing, yelling
crowd of newsboys. When the distri
bution began, the excitement; became
more intense alid the efforts of several
policemen were unavailing. f
It ia alleged that one of the bojrs,
in an endeavor to hasten the exit of
those who had received passes, shouted

faccl about and with almost super
human strength began to force their
way to the bottom of the . stairs.
Shrieka and physical encounters fol
lowed for- a few aeeoods, when, from
some eanse, those near. ; the top fell
headlong on the struggling mass at the
bottom. Four boys were dead when
extricated from ( their position at the
4xttom of the stairs. ; -
.Others, believed to be fatally
crushed, were taken out as fast as they
could be disentangled from their fren
zied companions, who fought and clung
to each other ia desperation. v f ,

from the scene of death and the crowd

trickled down the steps. ' Fragments

SALEM BOYS XJAEE QUEER FIND
IN EMPTY WATEB DITCH.
Several 'Phoney" Coins Bear Evi
' denes of Having, Been Very Ee
' cently Molested.'
No Evidence That Effort Has Been
Made to Clrculat Bad Money But
Officers on Alert Believed to Have
. Been Cast Away Because Imperfect.
Is there a regular band of counter
feiters operating in this cityf That is
the question with which the officers of
Salem have been confronted and it will
be thoroughly investigated. '
The question is suggested by the re
vealing of a quantity of counterfeit
coins of 5-cent and 50-ccnt denomina
tions in the mill race on Church street
by the two young sons of It. B. Coshow
yesterday morning. It quite frequently
occurs taat the ditch which conveys the
water to the different institutions
which derive power from it gets out of
repair, and ia order to set matters
right the water has to bo shut off
above. It became apparent on Satur
day that some repairs were needed for
the wator way and the water was shut
off Saturday night that toe work couM
be attended to on Sunday when tho
power was not needed.
The water was very shallow in tho
ditch, and when the two Coshow boys
were in Cue act of crossing the bridgo
they noticed something shining in tho
water. Upon investigation they found
it was; a coin, and thoy searched around)
until they had gathered six pieces, a
( 50-cent .piece and Ave nickels. It was
Ian, easy matter to discover that they
were counterfeit and of very recent
coinage', as they were still bright and
new.' It was also quite apparent that
the. coins were cast from molds and not
from dies, as some of the coins bore
ra titer indistinct impressions, while the
others were very good, but they were
all rather crude, and there was a faint
but disccrnablpt yet Ineradicable im
pression ef tfie circular metal hole of
Careful Inquiry about town failed to
show that any of the spurious coins
had been passed upon the business
men or merchants as yet, and it is
tuought by the officers that, if a coun
ter fevers' den has been established, it
is of recent date, and that tho parties
have not had time or opportunity tq
begin operations unless tbey have
adopted the policy of. manufacturing
their goods here and peddling them
elsewhere. Experts w'no Lave exam
ined the bogus coins found by tho loys
pronounce them as . a species of alloy,
and if perfect impressions could be pro
duced they could bo passed almost
anywhere, with tho possible exception
of a bank, where coins are frequently,
It is the opinion of those who have
given the matter thought that tho coins
were either thrown in tho mill race by
some party or parties who' had been
hard pressed and did not want to be
caught with them on Iheir persons, or
that the manufacturers of them 'ial
discarded them on account of. their
imperfections. The polic authorities
have been advised of the find and are
oa the lookout for the perpetrators as
well as for their rendezvous.
