A very ordinary appearing individual came into this valley a few weeks ago claiming to represent a Chicago wholesale grocery firm. her ' their local merchants, j His game is a bilking one and his j He went from house to house tak- i ing orders for such articles as rice, I coffee, tea, dried fruit, tobacco, j cocoanut, pepper, mustard, extracts, | etc., at prices which he claimed were 25 per cent under our local j merchants. Duke's Mixture he sold for 2*i' cents a sack, rice from ' 4 to (> cents a pound, and if the j articles were not as represented the ! purchaser was not compelled to ■ take them. He secured many orders | and left town, returning on the j 11th to deliver. Most of the buyers j were satisfied with the quality of the goods, weighed them and found full measure. So far so good, hut some of our people were too shrewd for the fakir, and discovered what was thought to he a mistake in their bill of overcharging. Charley Peck was presented a bill amounting to about $HS, when correct figuring i brought it down to something like | $(>•">. Of course the salesman was J very sorry and made the correction, Ivd Vaughn found it necessary to discount a small bill to the extent I of $4. Unfortunately for many not learn of these I they did errors until the fellows had left town and a little figuring revealed to them how cleverlv they had been Their credulity had been the cause of a few extra dollars thrown away, and to the pecuniary advantages of Mr. Neal. Fred Peck found that he had paid about $sOfor $(>() worth of groceries ] an a box of cigars (donated. ) Howard Peck has a $2,0 stock carefully stored away in his cellar j for which he paid near $11. And j W e understand there are many others j who were swindled in the same way. • ' .Many supposed that the prices quoted included freight and other charges for delivering, but the! solicitor said he added 15 per cent! for freight. He told this alter most of the goods had been delivered a nd the rest was easy. From what information we have been able to gather he would not leave with those ordering an itemized bill with ( the price of each article thereon, and when you received your good he presented a bill lor the total amount, the- articles being cheeked off frem the original order which lie kept in his possession. Ill this way (rom if 10 to$25 could be added to each amount, according to the size of the purchase, and if it was detected tile- plausible excuse could he made of a mistake.

Trenton, X. J. June 27. Charles J. Henderson, Jr., cf Jersey City, and Joseph M. Newlin of Phila delphia, council for George Rice of Marietta, O.. today filed in the Court of Chancery a hill for the dissolution of the Standard Oil company, a New Jersey corporation, charging that the company is illegal and that it exists in violation of the anti-trust laws of the United States, and of the State relating to monopolies. The bill charges that the Standard Oil company in Ohio was declared illegal by the courts of that State, but that the company, instead of dissolving in obedience to that decision, has, by subterfuge, evaded the Ohio decision, and that the New Jersey corporation is merely a holding company for the Ohio concern. The bill asks that not only the company be dissolved, but that its assets be distributed among its stockholders as paying off its out standing securities. For the ac complishment of this purpose it is asked that a receiver be appointed, __________ Attorney General's Opinion.

He has taken the day to his heart, and is as joyous over it as a boy over his first fire-cracker: and while perhaps he is yet a trifle hazy as to the exact importance of the event in American history, he is perfectly ch ar on the subject of Hags, and he is perfectly aware of the good times possible on this day. In Manila all the business houses are draped with starry hunting, and the ancient palaces are bright with the Stars and Stripes, and even the boats in the harbor are decked with "Old Glory." Towering arches, generally of bamboo, are erected in the streets and strung with flags and portraits of our national heroes. In the smaller Philip pine towns, where flags cannot be had, these arches are often made of cotton cloth and decorated with wreaths and suitable inscriptions. ■ The Filipinos have also adopted a great many of the amusements that used to mark the Fourth in our old New England towns. Climbing a greased pole in the I public square is almost always a j feature of Independence Day in Manila. And besides these, there are various athletic games instituted by our soldiers, and usually participated in by the younger Spaniards and natives. The even ing of the Fourth always sees a a at j pj orn general j Xorthern Pacific band-concert on the Euneta, and j the day ends as with us, with fire works. July Woman's Home Companion.

Their claim is that the tree is part of the land and as the title to the land rests in the state and is nou-taxable. the tree must be similarly treated. There are court decisions both affirming and denying this contention. While the assessors have so far not re turned this class of property for taxation, possibly being intimi dated by the positive stand main tained by the syndicates through their numerous agencies. Governor Morrison has instructed them to do so and tlris will probably hereafter be done, leaving to the courts the determination of any legal questions that may he involved. Meantime the contention of the syndicates that the tree is part of the land, if correct, will have an important bearing on the legality of the sales of th<- timber on the land. If the proposition is true that the tree is part of the land and there is no divorcement when the sale takes place, the converse must logically follow that the laud is part of the j tree, or that they are both one, and if one is sold the other is also. This view is sustained in the case of a lien on building material that goes to the improvement of real estate, in which the land itself, even when owned by a third person and one innocent of the entire transac tion, becomes amenable to the in cumbrance on the movable property. If the laud and the tree are one, as the syndicates maintain, both have been sold, provided any sale at all has taken place. But the constitu tion, and the terms of the enabling law forbid the sale of any state land for less than $10 per acre, vet much tms tiniDer nas ueen soia j ' i ^ ubdn" j w Ut - J!

It will he very unfortunate if a controversy like this should arise, involving the repudiation by the state of a contract of sale entered into delib- erately and with good faith, but i! such, breach is ever justifiable it. muv prove to Ire so in this case. The syndicates by first of all repudiating the laws and the au- thority oi tile Stute in refusing to subject themseles to the plain and mandatory provision req lik ing all propertv to bear an equal and jus:: proportion of the public taxation, not only deprive themselves of the. rights granted only to those who • into , court with « /lean hands, br.t c in their owa initia live set up a co nteii tion that the authorities may he fi need to trike cog nizance of in b fun-c of thr HUS! t funds ••'.u unite. 1 o) vhuir kv; *pi \\g. .
