alem, May 10, 1888.
Mr. It. Koehler, receiver of the O.
C, has also written the mayor a
ter explaining, at length, his
legram of Tue&day. Mr. Koehler
I to that he insists on tho indein
fjing bond, because the company
n't wait to begin construction of
e depot until the preliminary
raialities are complied with, and
wants to be on the wife side of
mgs with the company. He adds:
I 'arties residing at Salem, who are
terested in the change of location,
e in position to give the proper
re and attention to this and other
fats coining up in connection
ith the question of location, and it
ems to melt should be a small
itter for them to give an uuder
ikiug as asked for by us, because
ey could fully protect themselves
seeing that nothing is neglected
Ueh would place them in a
tsitioii under which they could be
lied upon under such document."
The citizens of Salem now have
i opportunity to secure the removal
the passenger depot to a point
ar the center of tho city, a point
ut would be a great deal more con-
nient for the general traveling
Ibllc. Tho buildincr. which the
mpany will erect, will be a haud-
Ime ornament to the city. It now
rains for the citizens to decide

'I not think the managers of tho

Biether it was only to vent an over-

Death From nn Overdose of Morphine
Last evening the wife of J. S. Sor
bin died from the supposed elfects of
an overdose of morphine. Mrs. Sor
biu was an Inveterate user of moi
phlne nnd opium ; and notwith
standing constant watchfulness by
her husband, she managed by "un
derground" moans to keep herself
supplied with these narcotics. Mr.
Sorbin had instituted preliminary
action for a divorce, and this fact
may, perhaps, have excited her to
take an overdose. This case calls for
a coroner's inquest if my informa
tion is correct in the premises.

TAKIMi SNAP JCDG3IEVT.
Ed. Capital Jeurnal: In the
Sllverton election on Monday, the
prohibitionists made a good display
of strength, tying five of tho coun
cil, and only lacking two or three
votes to elect the wholo ticket. To
save tho expense and delay of
nnother election those candidates
who were tied agreed to pull straws;
but it is now reported that tho votes
cast for tho prohibitionists aro to be
thrown out, because they aro print
ed on the wrong kind of paper.
I don't know who has ordered
this summary way of settling a con
test, or whether the candidates and
those who supported them with
their ballots will submit to such
suppression. It is certainly a daring
attempt to disfranchise one-half of
a city population because of a trif
ling irregularity, and I cannot
believe that the voters of Sllverton
will submit to it. They did not
print the ballots and voted them in
good faith, and to nullify their
votes because of tho carelessness of
some committeeman is too high
handed a proceeding for freemen to
submit to. This may be tho Louis
iana method, but it will not suit the
latitude of Oregon.
