J. Wiley, postmaster of Camas valley, Douglas county, was undergoing trial the latter part of the last week before Commissioner Gaddis on the charge of opening letters. The story is to the effect that a certain party suspected his wife of partiality for a third person inconsistent with her marriage vow, and prevailed upon the postmaster to detain and open one of the woman's letters. For this Mr. Wiley was arrested and placed under bonds of $400, which were at once furnished.
