Secretary Miuiniiig of the Board
of Trudo Is to-day in receipt of a
communication from E. C. Holden,
secretary of the Atstoriu & Soutli
Coast rullw ay, in which the informa
tion is given that the directors of
the road will hold a meeting to
night for the consideration of the
several communications from the
Suleni Hoard of Trade, in relation
to tlio construction of the lino
from Salem to Tillamook. Mr.
Holden says the further considera
tion of a special conference betwet n
tlio railway company and the Salem
committee has not been brought up
flince the return of President Devlin
from tlio east ten days ago, but to
night action will be taken. Tlio
Astorians had received the false in
formation thnt Salem had organized
and Incorporated a separate com
pany for tlio construction of the
proposed line. Tills accounts for
the delay. The Journal repeats,
that if wo desire to secure this road
we must unitoand work for It.

A Hermit's Strange Death.
Yesterday morning the decom
posed remains of Matthew Harrison,
u peculiar old man who resided near
Lake Lablsli, were fouud in the
woods near his home. He was a
strange hermit-like old man who
lived quite to himself among the
trees, guarding his ilocks and tilling
the soil. Frequently ho would dis
appear and and remain absent, no
one knew where, for several weeks
and unheralded would re-appear.
Living a lone life, little was known
of him and his absence was not
noticed. Yesteiday morning Alex
Lallemme, an old hunter and trap
per of that vicinity, was following a
trail near old man Hanison's cabin
when he was startled at coming
upon the outstretched form of the
old hermit. The sheriff aud coro
ner were at once notilled and an in
quest Is now being held.
It is supposed the old man had
been dead a couple of weeks, as his
beard had dropped out aud the
flesh was falling from his bones,
He has no known relatives. Heleaves
quite a little property, consisting of
160 sheep aud eighty acres of land.
No cause is assigned for his death,
other than that lie was taken with
a flt.whilo wandering through the
wood and expired, being too weak
to reach tho cabin.

Tho Yaqulna Republican says

1400 men are now engaged in
grading and general construction on
tho Oregon Pacific road, and splen
did progress Is being made.
Physicians estimate that in the
nelghbornood of 10,000 persons in
Portland were vaccinated since the
appearance of smallpox in that city.
The steamer Yaquina Bay still re
mains on the rocks alongside the
jetty aud is gradually breaking up.
There seems to be no further hope
of saving the vessel.
Tho teachers' institute for the
Second Judicial District, appointed
to meet at Corvallis, on the 2oth,
27th and 28th of this month, has
been postponed, in view of the
fact thut contagious diseases are pre
vailing to a limited extent in various
parts of the state.
The Coqulllo valley papers claim
that tho climate of that valley has
so changed in the last twenty years
that grapes, corn, tobacco and
sorghum which would not do any
good down there at all twenty years
ago, are now cultivated with com
plete success.
A great deal of freight is awaiting
shipment over the Oregon Pacific's
line and the loss or disablement of
the Yaquina Bay will cause great
inconvenience, unlessanother steam
er can be put on in her place imme
diately. Mr. Hoa says this will be
done, and the well-Known energy of
the officers is a guaianteo that noth
ing shore of impossibilities will pre
vent tho company Troiii meeting
even tills difficulty with its accus
tomed readiness.
