Madrlz protested not to the United States alone, but to all the South American and Central American re publics. . The statements in his tele gram are construed by the State De partment as an effort to place in a false light the policy oi the United States in regard to Nicaragua.

Oregon has acquired a new governor, for the time being. He is Jay Bowerman of Condon and suc ceeds to the office because of and by virtue ot his position as president ot the Oregon state senate. The consti tution of Oregon provides that In the event of the resignation, absence or other disability of both the Governor and secretary of state, the president of the senate shall perform the offices of the chief executive. The accumu lation of state business caused Gov ernor Benson who is receiving treat ment for a bothersome affliction of the face, to call on Mr. Bowerman to relieve the executive office at Salem of the congestion. It is believed by H. L. Benson, brother to the governor, that If the governor is allowed to remain in San Francisco long enougn. his physicians will be able to restore him to his for mer health. Heretofore the governor has been compelled to return before the course of treatment had been com pleted, necessarily to his great disad vantage. 6tate Wins Suit. Salem.

The company set up that the legis lature of 1874 had ceded to the prede cessors In interest of the Corvallls ft Eastern Railway company all the tide lands In the three bays named; that the railroad company's right bad be-, come a vested one and that no sub sequent session of the legislature had the power to revoke the action of the session of 1874.
