Mrs. Eveline Triplelt, whoso body
was Lund in shallow pool of waur
near her house at Hugo, 10 miles
north of this city, and who was sup
posed to have committed suicide, came
to her death by accident, or at least
late developments seem to phve such
a conclusion. The hole of water in
which the body of Mrs. Triplett was
found did not contain more than one
f"Ot of water and from all appearances j
it seemed that the woman threw her
self into the shallow water and delib- !
erately drowned herself. It
Known that she was partially
by her daughter havim? been nimmit
tdtothe asylum from here a few!
weeks ago. nnd it was supposed that j
s'le committed the rash deed during a i
tir of despondeny. Late developments j
show that she took carbolic acid. The
poison was taken by inisMke, evident
ly. There were two bottles on the
kitchen shell of the Triplett home, i
The following petition is beine
widely circulated over the state m be- j
half of the Indian War Veterans,
many Mgnaturcs being received in I
t'.is county:
Portland, Ore , Nov. 7, 1W2.
Hon. Senate and House of Represen
tatives of the State of Oregon.
Gentlemen :
The undersigned petitioners would
set forth the following facts: if.;
a"c ii-iiuuriai Legislature, ol t lie I
State of Oregon passed an act in the 1
session of '55-56 agreeing to pay all
veterans who served in the wars of !
1855-50 the sum of $2 ptr day for!
their service. The United States paid
ot tins amount about 5j cents per day
for such service. The total number
of days' service rendered by said vol
unteers was 371,449 days. Cf this
time each volunteer lost about 1 45
per day, which would make an aggro- j
gate sum of about !fa2t,02i?.K). Of
course, at least two-lift hs (-5) of th!s !
number have died, without having a
widow or children. Of the alvo sum
the state of Oregon has not paid one j
cent, and has not rtdevmed its pledge j
to those aged veterans, who hue!
waited forty-seven years anxiously ex
pecting the state either to secure this
pay from the United States, or to
meet their own obligations.
We will further state that various
territories have heretofore paid their
volunteers in bute r.oiids. ami tli,.

caroolic acid. Ity mirtake the woman
tonka quantity of the dj.iily acid;
noting her mistake she hurried out of
the room and across her yard toward
the neighbors. As sue was in the act
of crossing the pool of water her feet
slipped and she fell, unable to rise.
It was here her body vras found. Mrs.
Triplett was a .widow. Her husband
died by drowning in the Rogue several
years ago. She leave five children,
two sons and three daughterf.
se i onus, tt nether with the int:t
pior to their maturity, ui.d there is
no reason why the United States will
not redeem any bonds that your hon
orable body may issue, or cause to be
issued to these veterans in payment
( of their service, but whether they do,
j or not, does not lesocn the legal or
: moral respoi.sibility of the Sfate of
! Oregon, to pay these gray-headed vel
lerans, or their widows, and in the
event of the death of both, then their
children, the sum of nionev which the
Gov. Geer today commuted the sen- j Territory of Oregon agreed by uu act
tenee of John Campbell, who is serv- lf legislature to pay them lor their
ing a life sentence for the murder of sl'rvice.
I. L. Swearengen, in Crook county, in e therefor jietition your honor
IS'Jfj. CampU-U has already served ' al,!c ,J,,(,y to appropriate $:jW,(M,0 in
sis years and his sentence Ii.is been
commuted to twelve ye;irs. The Dis
trict Judge and ten trial jurors rec
immendeJ tf 'e commutation, as also
lid a large number of eiti.ens of
Crook county. The facts were that
Campbell and his wife were not living
together and Swearmgen was keeping
company with one Campbell's datigii
ters. Campbell ordered Swearengen
to stay away from the house, but he
p Tfcisted in going. IJecause erf some
insulting remarks made by Swearengen
t ie two had some trouble, and when
twenty (20) year bonds, drawing (4
percent) interest per annum to bit
used in paying off these veterans the
difference between that what Hit; Ter
ritory of Oregon agreed to pay them
and what the United States did pay
them for their service, and inasmuch
as this matter has lieen neglected so
many years, until the majority of
iheni are in their graves, we as citi
zens of Oregon, pray your honorable
body as honorable men to promptly
uiet the obligations of this State of
Oregon to these Veterans at the ores-

Campbell went to the house one nignt eilt session of the Irgislature,
where his wife and daughter resided, m ,,,, ,
he found Swearengen there. Trouble 1

San Francisco, Nov. 24. The gun
boat Hanger, which has arrived here
from Panama, will go to the Marc
Island navy yard, where she will re

'Utjuin Potter and the officers of the
Hanger witnessed some of the effects
of the eruption of the volcano Santa
Maria while parsing up the Central
American coast, but at the lime were

The shore, which was many miles dis

with white ashes. " j
