THE DAILY AllGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
Tcksday, Jaaxaut 8. 1889.
We bear little now of "Tippecanoe"
and 'log cabin" verbiage since the elec
tion. The simplicity of 1840 has already
been relegated to the background and ar
rangements are being speedily consum
mated for one of the most elaborate balls
ever witnessed in this country on the oc
casion of Harrison's inauguration. The
music alone is to cost about $3,500. It
will be a great event for the millionaires
and republican barons.
A WK9TKRH KariRHS farmer claims to
have produced during the last summer
ibe best sugar cane raised in the state. Ii
was grown in ninety days without a drop
of rain upon it from the time it was
planted until it was matured. lie regards
this as the most profitable product of that
part of the country . A Topeka paper
says: "If these things are true and
there can be no reason to doubt them
perhaps the salvation of that much ma
ligned and abused western Kansas is at
hand. It is unreasonable to expect the
dry and arid stretch of country immedi
ately eaittof the Colorado line to produce
Grain that can only be grown under the
most favorable circumstances, but that
is what the farmers have attempted to
raise. In two years Kansas will have at
least a dozen sugar works, and then there
will be good timrs and happiness for the
pioneer of the west."

The executive committee of the Rink
Island County Farmers' Institute has de
elded to hold the first session for the cur
rent year at Port Byron on Thursday,
Jan. 17, beginning at 10 o'clock a. m.
The following topics will be presented
for discussion: In the forenoon, educa
tion for the farmer; the subjects of corn
culture, and of buiter for the afternoon
session, and in the evening the subject of
bog raising and I105 cholera will be dis
cussed. In order to systemlze the work
of the institute the executive committee
will designate some one to open the dis
cussion of the subjects, but it is pro
posed to take up the principal part of the
time in a general discussion, and it is de
sired that everyone be disposed to con
tribute from thought and personal ex
perience, to the general information in
these discussions. There will be an
opening address and musie.
E. B. David, of Alcdo, vice president
of the State Fair association, will be
present and deliver an address at the

The faculty of Knox college at Gales,

on the question of admitting, Jybiadh,

The matter was left with the faculty, who
decided not to take action on the request
until after Nybladh's appeal to the con
ference bad been tried. They desire to
treat him the same aa any other young
rnan, desiring some proof of good charac
ter from the school with which he was
formerly connected. As long as the
trial is still pending, and the conference
meets in only a month, the faculty could
not Bee bow, in justice to the college,
they could now consider neriously a prop
osition to admit the young man. If in
the trial at the conference Nybladh dem
onstrates his innocence, showing the fal
sity of the allegations against his good
name, he will be admitted cheerfully the
same as any other young man. If the
opposite should be the cose, the faculty
think that to admit him now would prove

has reii' :hed here of the perpetration of a
crime, and of a terrible retribution which
immediately followed, in the upper part of
this state. It. seems that, a gang of negroes
determined to murder and rob another
negro who had recently got poKswsion of a
large sum of money. The plan was to com
mit the murder wluie the victim was being
rowed ncro-s Broad river in a boat. While
in the middle or the river the negro (whose
name was Fritzci) wax murdered, and, prob
ably ty hi struggles, the boat was over
turned and the entire party of four mur
derer were drowned. The murdered man's
body, with bin bead split -open and pockets
rifled, floated ashore. The bodies or the
others have not yet been seen.

Washington City, Jan. 8. A Demo
cratic calico was held in the hall of the
house last night. Cox in the chair. About
sixty members were present. The object of
the CHticns was to" ! fine the action of the
Democrat if! party on the resolution now be
fore the bouse to amend the rules of the
house to prevent the call of states for the
introduction and reading of bills on the first
and third Mondays of each month. The op
ponents of certain measures now on the cal
endar of the bouse, it is charged, have re
sorted to the rules now in operation to pre
vent reaching measures to which they have
objection notably the Oklahoma and the
Union Pacific funding bills. It is to prevent
this oppoHitio:i from being successful under
the rules thnt a change was desired.
Blount of Ueorsia made a strong speech,
justifying the Democrats in resisting the
resolution now In-fore tho house. If
adopted, he sni l, it would deprive the Dem
ocrats of their chief weapon of defense, ami
prevent the IV-niocrats in the next congress
resisting the unseating of Democrats right
fully elected by the people.

uniting and defeating ttv present resolution,
thus asserting themselves in controlling the
action of the Iioiisa He oppid Demo

and ffred a resolution iu supwrt of
this view of the situation.
U.itcs of Alal anin supported the resolu
tion ns it came from the committee. He
was opposed to the one man power in legisla
tion. It would lie time enough to Tight, if.
jn tlie next congress, the Republicans tried
to abridge the rights of the minority. He
wanted to see the w hites of the enemy's eyes
and not lire at a range of two miles.
Speaker Carlisle defended his action in
voting for the resolution in the committee
on rules, and claimed that it facilitated the
business of the house and country.
Holman Raid the adoption of the resolution
would deprive the minority of the rights it
possessed and wou'd prevent it obstructing
unwholesome legislation in the future. It
was a surrender which, at this juncture, was
unwise and impolitic.
Elliott of South Carolina was in favor of
a southern policy; in favor of standing by
those who stood by them the Democrats of
Crisp of Georgia mide a strong speech in
defense of those Democrats who were oppos

After a session lasting three ami a half

THE ALASKA INVESTIGATION.
Numerous AVie-. !,,. False the Re
'" Washington City, Jan. 8. The bou-e
committee investigating affairs in Alaska
with reference particularly to the allege.!
immorality of the Alaska company's agents
an. I the debauchery oi Indinn women and
girls, heard a numbr of witnesses yester
day, the most inij ;'tant being George R.
Tingle, the general treasury agent in charge
of the islands of iSt Paul and St. Georga
He testified from three years' experience
on St. George and St. Paul islands that the
stories published that the immorality on
thu.se islands was traceable to the Alaska
Commercial company, were absolutely false.
He knew of no community where less open
immorality existed. He knew Mr. Gavitt,
the treasury agent who was put oo St,
George island. Mr. Gavitt quarreled with
every man on the island. Mr. Tingle said
all the charges made by Mr. Gavitt were dis
proved on investigation. Mr. Gavitt' state
ment that Mr. Webster was constantly
drunk, was untrue. He (Tingle) usually had
liquor in his house on Si. George's island, as
he did not know at what time a congressional
committee would visit bun. This statement
created some laughter.
Mr. Tingl said the natives were now
treated with such consideration by the com
mercial seal company as to spoil them. They
work about ninety days a year and receive
about t-'-OO per year for it. He knew of but
one case of open immorality, which he tried,
and fined the offender f 10. He then read
several letters from his agents on the island
denying the charges made by Mr. Gavitt
against the company's agents. The com
pany's afrents are always instructed not to
come in contact with or offeud the govern
ment agents, and he never knew of a case
where they tried to intimidate them.
Louis Kimmel, who was interviewed some
time ago in Indianapolis.and quoted as paint
ing a dark picture of the ople's morals,
repudiated the interview in great part, and
testified that be bad never known of a case
Other witnesses were Capt Johnson, goT
eminent agent from 1S7 to 1SS8; Lieut.
NichOls, C. S. N. ; Capt. Abley, in command
U. S. H. Chicago, w ho was on the Alaska
station in lHMf,; j. H. Moulton, treasury
agent from 1S77 to I&S5; Joseph H. Johnson,

THE MONROE DOCTRINE REASSERTED
Edmunds Resolution Regarding the "Pan
ama Canal Adopted.
Wakhinuton City, Jan. H.ln the secret
session of the senate yesterday afternoon
there was a long and animated discussion of
Edmunds' resolution opposing the inter
ference of any foreign government with the
Panama canal. The senate closed its doors
because of the presence in the galleries of
the members of several of the foreign lega
tions, and because of the announcement in
the papers yesterday morning, through the
medium of a cablegram from Paris, that the
French people did not like the attitude of
the senate toward their pot proj-jct as ex
plained by the debate in the senate chamber
Ho report of the debate was taken, but
there was no opposition to the spirit of the
resolution, ibt timeliness being tlie only
point upou which there was a difference of
opinion expressed. Gray's amendment
offered Saturday was rejected, and the
original resolution amended by sultstituting
"government" for "congret" iu two places
adopted 49 yeas to 3 nays. The naya were
Blackburn, Vance, and Hampton. The
fact that, owing to the debate, one day's de
bate on the tariff bill was lost was the
reason for extending the time for the final
vote on the latter mensure to the 1WJ iust.
Edmunds' resolutions as passed were as
Resolved by the senate and house of represen
tatives of theUuited (states of America in con
gress assembled. That the governmeut of the
United Hinted will look with serious concern and
disapproval upon any connection of any Europ
ean government with the construction or control
of any ship canal across tlie isthmus of Darien
or across Central America, and must regard any
such connection or control as injurious to the
just rights and internets of the Uuited States,
and as a menace to their welfare.
Sec. 8. That the president be. and he is hereby,
requested to communicate this expression of the
views of tho government of the United Btates to
the governments of the countries of Europe.

of the Land.
Washington Crrv, Jan. 8 The sup-erne
court of the United States yesterday,
tendered a decision in the case of the Mip-
noapolis & St. Ixm s Railway company,
against O'iver Bjckwith, an appeal from
the circuit court of Kossuth County, Iowa.
Three hogs belonging to Berk with were

vides that if a railroa 1 company fails to pay
damages caused to sto :k, by reason of non
fencing of its road, w thin thirty days after
the claim is made, the company shall pay
twice the amount of the value of the stock.
The various state ar d circuit courts sus
tained the statute. Tae company appealed
on the ground of its unconstitutionality by
subjecting the comprny to a penalty dif
ferent from that to which other persons are
subjected. Justice P.eld, in a long decision,
affirmed tho judgment of the circuit court
The case has excited great interest, as the
amount involved is bi 1 124, and the costs of
the litigation havebet-n thousands.

Gilman, W. T., Jan. 8 At daylight
yesterday morning Alfred Shafford, a Bohe
mian miner, crawled under the residence of
George Bodayla, placed a keg of giant
powder there, and fired tie fuse. 1 be ex.
plosion blew the house to atomi, killing
three persons and seriously wounding three
others. ShafTord was arrested, but wus taken
from the officers and lynched.
Last spring ShafTord assaulted Bodayla's
wife. The husband tried to kill him, but
ShafTord gave hitnsalf up and was sent to
jail. While serving bis term of imprison
ment be threatened to kill Bodayla. For
this threat he was again arrested, tried, con
victed, and sent back to jail. Recently
he was released, and, returning to Gilman,
be publicly boasted that he would kill every
member of the Bodayla household within a
week. Shafford was a desperado and Bodayla
a harmless a peaceful fellow, and, knowing
that his own life and the lives of nis family
were in imminent danger, decided to leave
the country Sunday. He sold his home, and
yesterday was intending to move his family
to San Francisco. Sunday night Shafford
learned that Bodayla was going away, and
said that he would never leave Gilman alive.
John and Micharl Survik, brothers, over
heard the threat and went to Bodayla's bouse
to stand guard during the night
At 5 o'clock yesterday morning tbe entire
town was shaken by a terrific explosion.
Men, women, an I children rushed from their
homos, many believing there had been an
earthquake Nearly every house in town
was damage 1. Bo inyla's house was reduced
to a pile of splinters, and the roof was found
more than a block away. The Survik
brothers, who so heroically stood guard
throughout tho night w(re mangled almost
beyond recognition. John Survik was
hurled across the street and dashed to death
against a brick wall. The bloody imprint of
his form is distinctly outlined on the wall,
showing the terrific force of the explosion.
Michael was thrown 2X) feet. When his
body was found the head hung by a few
shreds of flesh, and both legs were torn off.
Bodayla's daughter, 9 years old, was lying
dead in the middle of the street; one arm
was gone and tbe head was crushed
into a shapeless mass. Another child was
found in the ruins terribly mangled, but not
fatally. B.jdayla'8 left leg was torn off, but
the doctors say he may live. Mrs, Bodayla,
although not disfigured, was unconscious
when taken from under a pile of splintered
timliers, and has not yet been able tt speak.
Her recovery is doubtful.
The strangest feature of the explosion was
that a 10-monlhs-c!,l toby was hurled into
the street an 1 picked out of a mud-puddle
uninjured. A small clock was found i"0J
feet from the ruins. It was still ruuniug
and had not stopped.
Shafford was arrested, but the miners
took him from the sheriff and strung him
up to a tree.

only one was such as to attract national and
international attention. This was at Wind

member of the Dominion parliament, con
tested the mayoralty. Although Mr. White
at tbe nominations a week ago protested
that his openly avowed preference for union
with the Uuited States should not be made a
factor in the municipal contest, his oppon

White was defeated. The following are the

"What!!! Have you finished your washing? I had much less than
you and you are through first. What soap do you use ?"
"It isn't the soap. Use washing powder and you will get through
n half the time; it does tlie work fur you."
"I know it will, but the clothes won't last half so long; we've tried it.
We use Ivory Soap altogether; it cleans more easily and quickly than
any other kind, and I find the clothes last as long again. My foks
won't let mc use washing powder."
"Of course they won't, neither will mine, but I use it anyhow. I don't
care to save their clothes at the expense of my time and back."
Reader, winch do yo value most, your laundress' time and tack, or
your clothes? If the latter, then don't let her use washing powder.
