Mrs. Smith's Tears.
When Barber Smith's wife, who
is in jail at Portland, heard that her
husband had thrown himself into
the river she wept bitterly, seeming
to be sorry that she had chosen the
until of thorns and civlng the idea
that she might yet reform. But it
is known for a certainty thut Smith
is among the living and in San
Francisco, no doubt. His idea in
causing the telegram to be sent hero
is not known, unless it might be to
enlist his wife's sympathy or bring
himself into prominence again.

He Was Insane and Knew It.
Yesterday evening PcrryDoutb.lt,
who has for several years lived
about twentv mibs east of Salem,
appeared before Sheriff Croisan and
Kiid he was crazy and wanted to be
sent to the asylum. An examina
tion was conducted before Judce
Shaw and in the presence of Drs.
Richardson and Rowland, which
resulted in the unfortunate man
being adjudged insane, and ordered
sent to the asylum. Ho was taken
out last night.
Douthit comes of a family in which
insanity is hereditary, and has for
years shown signs of insanity,
though never violent. He is forty
five years of age, and a bachelor and
has once before been in an asyium
in Washington territory. When he
was twenty-two years of ago ho first
showed signs of mental aberration,
and at times has been flighty ever
since. Self abuse is assigned as the
cause of his derangement.

was to show thnt the reason bo many

Silvkhton, Oregon, Oct. 11.
We hlivonovorliolinliliiinnro foreU
bleillustration of the old saying that
"forbearance reases to be n virtue,"
than has fallen under our observa
tion during the past two weeks,
while traveling along tho line of the
Oregonian Railway Company.
During the year'lSSO and 1SS1 the
citiKcns of this portion of Marion
county were highly elated over the
prospect of having a railroad and
when called upon by the projectors
of the scheme contributed liberally.
Durlnc the llrt three or four years
of the roads existence the majority
ot supporters seemed lo bo satisfied
and very little complaint was made,
but during the past two or three
yoars the road has b en run In such
a disgraceful manner that it is a
wonder the pcuple have not long
before this banded together and
cither torn up the track or compelled
the management tos op the running
Some llino since the railroad com
missioners after a thorough Inspec
tion of the roadbed condemned It
and ordered the same repaired or all
trains tied up. After waiting a
long as possible the receiver has at
last commenced tho necessary re
pairs, and workmen are engaged
putting In new ties and bridges.
At present people traveling over
this line take their lives in their
own hands, and only through an
interposition of divine providence
do they safely arrive at their destina
tion. By a careful Inspection of the
roadbed it will bo noticed that a
majority of the ties have entirely
rotted out and the rails are in many
nlaces lvlnc on the bare ground for
several feet, while in some instances
sticks of wood have been taken oil
the tender and put under the rails.
One of the engineers says that while
the ground is dry and hard, It made
no difference whether thero were
any ties under the rails or not, but
us soon as the rainy season set in
and the ground become soft the rails
would then spread out and it would
be impossible to make a trip with
out getting oil" the track. j
We do not understand why it Is
that the employes of this company
do not receive their pay at the ex
piration of each month, for tho road
Is in a paying condition. They
have all tho freight they can handle,
and receive, we aro hnforniod, $45
per day for carrying tbo mull. The
telegraph and express lines idso
bring in considerable revenue.
One of tho most gigantic outrages
ever perpetrated upon the public
was committed by this company
recently. About forty people pur
chased tickets In Portland for
different stations along the lino and
when tho train arrived at the lutul
inir no boat was thero to take tho
passengers across tho river, and the
transfer had to be made by wagons.
The distance by the wagon road
across Ray's ferry is about ilvo
miles and several passengers had to
walk and curry their baggage, there
being only two wagons to carry
forty passengers, baggage, mall and
A few days ago parties in Sllverton
made arrangements with this com
pany to huul oats from that place to
Ray's landing and deliver tho same
to the O. It. & N. to be taken to ban
Francisco, tho price to Iks paid per
car from Sllverton to Han Francisco
being 35. Thinking they would do
as agreed tho contracting parties
loaded two cars and way billed
thorn "Ray's Landing care O. It. &
Co." In a few days tho 1)111
returned to the shipcr, but instead
of bolng f85 as previously agreed
upon, was made out for $51. Com
ment Is unnecessary.
Wo would also call tho attentlt U
of tho postal nuthoiltles to tho fact
that the mall is handled In ti very
loose manner on the traliiH, hardly
a day passing without some mall
being earned past its destination.
The only remedy wo can see, Is
for tiie people of Bulom and Silver
ton to stand in together and offer
sulflclont inducement to the South
ern Pacific to build a brunch road
from Salem to that point, whloh wo
think could Ikj easily managed, and
