A Mother and Child Murdered by Theii Landlord. A GltAVB MADE FOR TDE FATHER. But the letter Escaped and Gave the Alarm The Murderer in Danger of Lynthlng-lle hai Con - fesed the Crime, Empihk City, Or., July 15. Easten hever, a tenant of John Oilman's on his farm, near Coquille City, returning from his week's work yesterday evening, was waylaid and attacked by John Oilman near bis home, but succeeded in making his escape and gave the alarm. A large party from Coquille was immediately organized and returned to the farm,. where they finally found today the bod ies of Eastenhc"ver's wife and child, who bad been murdered, and the bodies bad been buried near the house. A ready made grave was also found for the hus band. Oilman and his wife were arrested, and the circumstances point conclusive ly to their guilt. Oilman wanted them to leave, which they refused to do until the lease had expired. There is great excitement here, and there are fears of lynching tonight. THE MURDERER ARRESTED. Sax Francisco, July 15. An Exami ner special from Empire City says : Gil man, the murderer has been safely lodged in jail here. When under fear of immediatelynching, be confessed to (l(jI;liprafe killing of the woman and child and the ir tended killing of the hus band, and also admitted killing Oeorge Morris a year ago, of which crime he was suspected at the time. He was oniy saved from lynching by hurrying him from Coquille City before a crowd bad fully organized. He denies that his wife was an accomplice. JOHN 1.. DRAGGED TO J A II. Aft- an Exciting Struggle With the Nashville Pol loo.-He Noon Re gained III Liberty. Nashville, July 11. When the Louis ville & Nashville train pulled into this city this morning, a crow J surged around the car to see John L. Sullivan. A rumor soon obtained circulation tnat a requisition was in thehands of the po lice, several cf whom had boarded the car. There was some discussion and hnaliy a struggle was seen in the car and an officer reached over with hand cuffs and seizing the slogger's arms, pulled him out into the aisle. Sullivan resisted and Muldoon put his head out of the window and cried to the crowd: "Gentlemen, I demand American pro tection !" His patriotic wail was greeted with a variety of responses. Sullivan begged him to "knock the copper out," and others cried : "Hurrah for the Nash ville police !" "Hit him with your club," etc. After a brief struggle Sullivan was taken from the car to a carriage. In the scuflle he drew back to knock down a policeman, when Chief Black stuck a pistol in Jiis face and told him if he struck he (Black) would, kill him.' The officers next grabbed Charles Johnson, of Brooklyn, Sullivan's backer, who re sisted vigorously, but finally cried out with pain. During all this scrimmage, Muldoon sat quietly by and was undis turbed. Cleary, Sullivan'sethersecond, hid in the excitement, and Lynch jumped oU the train. Only Johnson and Sullivan were detained, though the others were wanted. ' The arrests w ere made by the author ity of a telegram from Governor Lowry, of Mississippi, to the Nashville chief of police. Sullivan has retained ex-Attorney- General Washington, who says the offi cers went beyond their authority and cannot hold the men. Immediately an attempt will be made to get the parties out on a writ of habeas corpus. Gov- ernor Lowry's telegram oners a reward of $1000. ' It is believed that if released Sullivan will be rearrested to secure time for a requisition to be obtained. The arrested belligerants are now in the po lice station in conference with their at torney. . . AG. AIM AT LIBERTY. At 3 o'clock Judge McAllister, of the circuit court, heard the arguments in Sullivan's petition for a writ of habeas corpus. In rendering this decision the judge was very emphatic in his declare tion that to bold Sullivan longer would be a most arbitrary act on the part of the court; that the officers had arrested him without a warrant or the authority of the law; and that the -misdemeanor was not extiaditable by the laws of the Tennessee courts and by the precedents of Governor Taylor. He therefore ordered Sullivan released.. There was an immense crowd present and the decision of the judge was greeted with great applause. Sull'van and John son went east by way of the Louisville & Nashville tonight. Marrled Women and Timber Land. A matter of great interest to married women in this state is a late ruling by S. M. Stockslager, until recently com missioner of the general land office, which denies to them the right to take up timber land under the act of June 1878. Prior to this ruling married women possessing money in their own right could select a quarter section of public land valuable chiefly for htone or timber and by complying with the provisions of the act above mentioned, could purchase such land from the general government. Eut Commissioner Stock Pager's ruling has changed all this and timber claims of ugariTed women alrea taken up are being held for cancellation and fegi&Uiis at the various land offices in the state have, since receiving this decision, re fused to accept any more filings from applicants who are married women. The impression has gone abroad, be cause JUr. isurney, tne register ol the office at Oregon City, was the first to re fuse to accept a filing by a married woman, that it was a ruling made by himself, personally, from which it would be necessary to appeal to Washington. To correct this impression, we quote a portion of the original ruling: "I therefore conclude that a married woman cannot make an entry un der the act oi June 3, 1878, in the state of Oregon', and the entry of Delilah Stukel is held for cancellation. You will report to this office in due time. Very respectfully, S. M. Stockslager, Commissioner." On June 22, the entry of Annie Oliver son, of Astoria, Clatsop county, at the Oregon City office, for the southwest of the southwest J4 of section 23, town ship 7 north, range 9 west, was sus pended, and the entry held for cancella tion by the now Acting Commissioner W. M. Stone, who, in so doing, said: "The testimony submitted shows her to have been a married woman at the time of making said entry, and therefore not qualified, in the state of Oregon, to perfect an entry under act of June 3, 1878." While the registers of the land office in this state are compelled to enforce this ruling, it is believed, and all appli cants are so assured, that the ex-com missioner's decision in this matter will be overruled by the secretary of the in terrior upon an appeal soon to be taken by Hon. L. T. Barin in a number of cases now pending. There is no justice in denying a married woman in Oregon what is allowed her married sister in California. ' Fiom Genoa to San Fravcigco, The Italian chamber of commerce of this city has just received information announcing the es'tablidhment of a regu lar line of sailing vessels to run direct between San Francisco and Genoa,. Toe first vessel of the line sailed June 18 with a full cargo of marble for ibis port. TELEGRAPHIC NOTES. The Usual Number of Accidents Happen r)uring the Week. FOUR MEN DIE TO REGAIN A WATCH. Larjre Transaction in the Hale of a Gold Kline Cutting Afrray in Ullllam County Work on the Ni caragua Canal. New York, July 15.

After dinner they ad journed to a private room, where they held a conference, and it is said were joined by Cleveland. The meeting of so many men conspicuous in the politics of the country as these gentlemen are could not fail to attract attention and comment. A well known Democratic leader in this city said that lie had heard that such a meeting had taken place. He intimated that Chairman Brice was anx ious for the Democratic party to begin its work immediately and not wait un til too late. That there are opposing factions hard to reconcile is no secret, and the local leaders believed that these gentlemen had put their heads together for the purpose of coming to a common understanding.

At Otis, sixteen miles east of this city, at 2 o'clock this morning, the eastbound passenger train was wrecked, four coaches being derailed and were badly smashed. The high wind prevailing Sunday night blew several cars from the switch to the main line, and the passen ger train dashed into them. Engineer Burns and Fireman Fletcher jumped just before the collision. Burns escaped unhurt, but Fletcher received injuries which will probabably prove fatal. lie was brought to the hospital in this city, where he is in an unconscious condition. A bridge and trestle 500 feet long over Hangman creek, on the Seattle, Lake Shore & Eastern, three miles west of this city, burned on Sunday evening. An excursion train returning from Med ical Lake was signalled by a small boy waving a, red flannel shirt attached to a pole, and stopped in time to prevent a shocking accident. The passengers walked to the city, and the train re turned to Medical Lake. Work is pro gressing on the structure, but trains will not be able to cross earlier than Tues day night. The cause of the fire is un known. A Pecullai Fatality. Lincoln, Neb., July 17. Four men lost their lives in this city this after noon under peculiar circumstances. A watch was dropped in a cesspool and the men were endeavoring to recover it. They had dug a large bole at the side of the pcol, and this hole was filled with water by ruin. One man stood on a ladder above the water and made an opening into the cesspool, and the foul air and gas rushed out and overcame him, and he fell in to the water. A friend went to give him aid and was likewise overcome. Others came to help, and one by one, seven men fell into the water, which was full of muck and slime from the vault. Three were rescued, some by men who afterward perished in attempting to save others. The dead are : James Crawford, Albert Kunkler, John Cleary and Frank Ma loney. Crawford and Cleary were mar ried. From Gilliam County, Arlington, July 17. A cutting affray took place at Condon last Monday fore noon over a dispute about the price of a horse. Dan Rinehart, son of G, W. Rinehart, was seriously, though prob ably not fatally hurt by Brick Baldwin, son of J. C. Baldwin, the horse dealer. It seems Rinehart had bought a horse of Baldwin, and agreed to pay a certain sum for him. A settlement was had and they disagreed with the above result. Baldwin has been bound over in the sum of $1200 to appear before the grand jury. The residence and barn of W. G. Flett were burned to the ground last Saturday night, and the occupants barely escaped with their lives. Flett lives on Rock Creek, about thirty-five miles from here. Pendleton News Items.
