                         JOAQUIN MILLER A MILLIONAIRE.
                               Stumbled Onto Land In Texas
                                              Oil Field.
     Letters have been received by relatives of Joaquin Miller at Eugene which
leave but little doubt that he has made a fortune.  It seems that a few months
ago he became tired of his California home and started for Texas with the idea
of hunting a new location without any particular section in view.  At any rate
he got off the cars at Beaumont, the an [sic; = then an] obscure and unknown
place, as it was still before the discovery of oil near there.  He located where
he thought he would be as nearly out of the world as possible, and to have
room around him free from molestation he bought a thousand acres at merely
a nominal figure.  But the poet was not to have the long-sought resting place
in which to spend his declining years.  All around him the great gushing oil
wells have been discovered.  Several of them have been bored on his ranch
and "Joaquin" of wandering fame has been made immensely rich, probably a
millionaire.  He is happy as a lord.  Once before he made his fortune on Wall
Street and as quickly lost it.  His new fortune has already made him liberal as
usual and he has already announced that he is bequeathing his California
home, "The Heights" with 100 acres near Oakland, to the school children of
that city.  The home will not be surrendered right away -- as his mother, who
is very aged, and his children will use it for some time.  Miller's parents came
to Oregon in 1852, settling in Lane county where his father died.  For a time
in the '60's [sic] he edited the Democratic Review.  --Capital Journal.  +

                                    About Mrs. McKinley.
     Mrs. McKinley's life is a lesson in simplicity.  Invalidism, which she has
borne with cheerful fortitude, deprives her of many pleasures which she would
otherwise enjoy.
     She was the daughter of  James A. Saxton, a prominent banker of Canton,
Ohio, and was born in that city.  In the public school there and later in a
private school in Cleveland, she obtained her preliminary education.
     Then she attended for three years Brook Hall Seminary in Media, PA.  Six
months of travel in Europe completed her education and she returned to her
house in Canton an acknowledged belle.
     Her father, a man of practical ideas, said, "She must be trained to earn her
own bread if necessary and not to sell herself to matrimony."  So Miss Ida
Saxton received a place in her father's banking house, and it is said of her that
her face attracted boquets and notes in her window.
     She had many suitors, but Major McKinley, then a rising young lawyer,
was the most highly favored.  He won her hand and this acknowledgement
from her father.  "Major McKinley is the only man I have ever known to
whom I would entrust my daughter."
     They were married on January 25, 1871, in Canton.
     It is said that in the early days of their marriage she said [sic] that Major
McKinley would some day be President of  the United States.   They went to
house-keeping in the home which has since become famous.
     Their first child was born on Christmas Day, 1872, and was named Kate.
She lived to be three year [sic] old.  The second child, named Ida, died in
     At about the same time, Mrs. McKinley's mother died.
     The shock brought on a long illness, which left her an invalid.  Partial
paralysis had resulted and since then she has walked with difficulty and some
times she has been unable to stand.
     She was extremely ambitious for her husband.  In Washington for many
years as the wife of Representative McKinley she was greatly admired.  But it
is as the wife of the President and the first lady of the land that the deepest
interest has attached to her life.  She is fond of children and at one time
wanted  to adopt the little daughter of her seamstress and nurse, of a poor
widow.  She also desired to adopt Miss Grace McKinley, the orphan daughter
of the President's brother James.  She leaves [sic; = loves?] music and flowers
     She is denied the delight of reading to any great extent, but is fond of
books, and the President spends much time reading aloud to her.  She is deft
with her fingers and crocheting is one of her chief enjoyments.
     Mrs. McKinley was reared a Presbyterian, but became a member of the
Methodist church.
     At dinners her wine glass is always turned down.  She always sits beside
the President; even at state dinners, when custom assigns the President's place
at the table opposite her.  President McKinley will never allow anything to
separate him from his wife when she is able to attend public functions.  The
President's devotion to his wife is a touching tribute to her. --Ex.  +

                                Oregon Timber at Buffalo Expo-
     The Buffalo Courier of May 24 [sic] has this about the Oregon timber
exhibit at the Pan-American Exposition at that city.
     Winches and rollers have solved the problem of moving Oregon's two big
timbers from the railroad cars to their place in the forestry exhibit.
     These timbers have been the cause of considerable worry among
Exposition officials, and for some time it looked as if they would have to
remain on the tracks or be shipped back home.  This the Oregon
commissioners declared should not be done, as they had been brought by the
direct request of Director-General Buchanan, who had promised to move
anything in the way of a log that Oregon could furnish.
     Col. Dosch, who is the general superintendent of Oregon's exhibits, says he
did not bring the biggest he could find, but when the two he did bring arrived
here the Director General was non-plussed.  One of them is a sawed log,
thirty-four inches square and seventy-four feet long.  The other is still in its
rough state, is not so long, diameter of six feet.
     As the railroad tracks could not be extended to the Forestry Building, the
only feasible plan for moving the big timbers was to put them on rollers and
move them with a powerful windlass.  +

     Redding, Cal., June 6.  --Geo. C. Carson, an experienced mining man of
Northern California, and recently superintendent of a mine in this district, has
applied for a patent on a new process for the manufacture of steel, which he
claims to have perfected.  Carson states that he has been approached by a
large Eastern steel organization with an offer of $600,000 for the secret,
provided the patent is issued and tests are satisfactory.  A testing plant will be
established near Chicago.  By the use of the Carson process, the inventor
states that steel of a quality much superior to Bessamer steel can be produced.

                                          A Communication.
Coquille, Or., June 10, 1901.
     Ed. Bulletin.  – Dear Sir: -- In your issue of 7th  inst., you make a labored
effort to lay the blame on the escaping of Landis to me.
   There are some matters connected with the case I deem of sufficient
importance to call your attention to.
     The McQuigg boys did not see Landis burying the body.  They said in the
first instance that they saw a man about 6 foot high, dressed in black clothes,
who was fifty years old or more, digging a hole.  When the body was
afterwards found and thought it was Landis.
   This description in no way described Landis.  They claimed they were
within thirty feet and saw him plainly.  This was about midnight of the night
the body of Eudaily was found, and I think Mr. Gallier is mistaken when he
says he saw me two or three hours afterwards.  At that time I stated that I
would not advise issuing a warrant then, but suggested that they keep watch
on Landis, and if he attempted to leave town to take him in.
   As to the issuing of warrant on inquest procedings, see Sec. 1666, Hill’s
Code of Oregon, which provides that warrant shall issue after the findings of
the coroner’s jury are made.  In this case other testimony was taken after
Landis had escaped, which pointed to him as the guilty party, and the
McQuigg boys then swore positively it was Landis they saw.
   Then on section 1576, Hill’s Code, which says:
    “A peace officer may, without warrant, arrest a person when a felony has in
fact been committed and he has reasonable cause for believing the person
arrested to have committed it.”
   Using similar language to your own:  “I supposed the sheriff knew the law
in the matter, and would do his full duty.  If Gallier knew that there was
reasonable cause for believing Landis guilty why did he not arrest him when
he attempted to escape.
   “I am not to blame for not calling the sheriff’s attention to the law defining
his duties; as he asked no questions, and I presumed he knew he could arrest
without a warrant.  It is no new thing to arrest without a warrant.  It has been
done in felony cases here in this county before.
   “It is an unfortunate affair, but not an isolated case, of a criminal escaping
by any means, and to try to make the public believe I am wholly responsible I
consider unfair and not warranted by the facts and circumstances.”
            Very Respectfully yours,
                  Walter Sinclair.  +

         We have heard good reports from the citizens of the different road districts in
regards to the county roads, and the supervisors have been complimented very
highly for the work they have, and are doing.  Coos county has got lots of room in
which to improve our thoroughfares and with competent men in these places, has
taken a long stride towards the goal.  We believe the only solution to this question, in
Coos county, is to have the roads planked.  Supervisor Flanders, of this district, has
in the last year demonstrated this to be a fact by experiment, having planked about
1000 feet, between this place and Johnson’s mill, which, before this was done,
was considered the worst piece of road in the county, and in the rainy season was
impassable.  He informs us that it has proved a success without a doubt.  Mr. Flanders
deserves a great credit for the manner in which he is handling the road question in his
district.  +
