Thk Propkr Thing. Kepresentative
eiect M A Miller has been investigating
the matter of the construction of a fish
ladder at Oregon City, and he infer ins us
that one of the representatives from this
county will introduce a bill in the next
legislature to make an appropriation for
this purpose. There have been two or
three fish ladders put in at these falls at
great expense, the legislature at one ses
sion ppropriating $10,000 for the con
struction of one, hut they soon washed
out. Mr Miller's idea is now to make a
passage way by blasting out steps in the
solid rock. In conversation with a civil
engineer in Portland last week he was
told that this would cost not to exceed
$3000, and it would be indestructible.
Tha people on the Columbia have here
tofore been opposed to a fish ladder at
this place, but having learned that the
upper Willamette and its tributaries are
the natural spawning ground for salmon,
their representatives will now favor the
measure. It is said that permitting U10
fish to come above the falls will benefit
the people of the upper Willamette val
ley to the extent of $50,000 per year, and
Mr Miller says the f.inn county delga
tion will de all they ran to secure an
appropriation for this purpose. Ad
vance. Not Bklsuaw bit Birkhart. Laai
evening the Democrat published an item
from the Rural Northwest in reference
to the wheat raising of George Belahaw
of Lane county. A paragraph reads:
"As indicating what It's skill, in con
junction with the favorable nature con
ditions found in Oregon, can do, is the
fact that wheat grown by him took the
first place both at the Centennial Expo
sition and at the New Orleans Exposi
tion " The truth is Belshaw's wheat did
not take the first place at the Centennial,
though he has been very cheekily claim
ing it for sevetal yeari. Mr C I' Hurt
hart, of this city, secured the first
premium for the best display of 15
varieties of wheat at the Centennial. ami
shows the Dkmocbat his diploma to
prove It. David Prettyman. of Polk
county, took the first premium for the
beet single bushel. It is time Belsbaw
quitclaiming a credit that belongs to
Line county, and at big ene, one any
coaisTJonity may well be proud of.
HcavxNLv FnuwoRKs. Vednesday
even here in Albany we had a shooting
star exhibition rarely witnessed here.
Hundreds of them at intervals were seen
dropping about. Little waa thought
about it at the time though. In the
east a more lively meteoric display was
made. A dispatch says: The heavens
were filled with celestial fireworks last
night, and those who kept their eyes and
minds on things earthly missed a beau
tiful and interesting display. All over
the sky bright spots and streaks of light
darting and streaming. They came from
all quarters, and darted in every direc
tion. Some gleamed suddenly and
brilliantly and suddenly wen out '.ike
the intermittent flashes from tropical
fireflies in the dark forests. Others
flashed across the sky, behind tbem a
streak of reddish light that often seemed,
to extend clear across the firmament and
last until the brilliant head and all were
swallowed up in blackness.
Hbndersox Guilty. William Hen
derson at Oregon City was last night con
victed of murder In the first degree. The
trial began after noon and consumed less
ihan Sve hours. Ttie evidence showed
that September 19 Henderson, Cy Suter
snd others were in a saloon in'Canbv
playing cards, when a quarrel ensued.
Names were callbj and the gime was
broken up, Henderson and Suter swearing
about cheating. Finally Suter aeeaaed to
conclude that he ou!d make up, snd,
coming across the room, laid his hand on
Henderson's shoulder snd said: "We
won't quarrel, will we?'' Henderson's
answer waa to slip from his sleeve a long,
sharp Lnife, with which he made a pass at
Suter. inflicting a long, deep gaah across
the abdomen, out of which the intestine
protruded. Suter seized a chair and would
then have struck him, but the bartender
prevented him from doing ae. Hender
son at that time tried to reach his back
with the knife,but failed. He then ran out
and passing by Dr Knights, told htm a
man was hurt in the saloon, and then
skipped for the woods, In which he hid for
-several days, finally turning up in Port
land, where he was arrested. Suter died.
Henderson it the man who put out Alex
Purdoms ye, of this city .and there is con.
siderable satisfaction among Purdoms
riends in seeing Henderson get justice,
though in another case.

Bklshaw's Wheat. From th: Rural
Northwest: Mr George Belshaw, the
famous wheat grower of Eugene, Oregon,
wss In Portland a short tim.- since and in
conversation with Col E W Allen, secre
tary of the state board of horticulture, in
formed him tha'. he now has the most
magnificent rollecilen of wheat that he
hat ever raited and that a re! ettate firm
In Eugene wat very anxious to secure it for
display in their office. Mr Allen Immedi
ately closed arrangements with Mr Bel
thaw to secure this wheat for the Oregon
exhibit at the Columbian exposition. This
collection includes 300 bundles and So
tacks of as many varieties of wheat.
Many of the bundles of wheat stand ever
;S feet high. Mr Belshaw hat bee.i en
gagedjfor many years In testing varieties
of wheat under a tyvtem of high culture
ond hat experimented with over 300
variettet in all. At indicating what hit
skill, In conjunction with the favorable
nature conditions found in Oregon; can
do, is the fact that whea' grown by him
too, the first place both at the Centennial
Exposition and at the New Orleans Ex
position He considers hit present exhibit,
however, superior to any that he hat
A Serious Mistake. An amusing in
cident occurred in a neighborhood near
this place one day this wsek and we
reproduce it as related to us, says the
Brownsville Times. It seems that a
certain woman overheard Jane Warner
say that they had no turkeys as the
bawka had been stealing them. The
"certain" woman went to Anderson
Hawasand told hi tu that Jabe said he
stole their turkeys, whereupon this gen
tleman waxed wraib.hia pot of irritation
boiling up and running over. In thit
condition he shouldered bis ira'e temper,
blew up his muscle, and like David, of
old. searched for a fine pebble.atd hast
ened to the flowery retreat of Jabe;
calling him to the door be immediately
hurled flie missile at him, striking him
in the face and slightly disfiguring his
countenance. At this Jake rushed out
and the two began a combat in true
pugilistic style. Everything was all
right when it was learned only a hawk.a
bird, had done the stealing.

Bete Sicab Factory. Albany has
be same opportunity mentioned by
Eugene Register: SKime parties in Ca1'-
fornia are desirous of locating a beet sugar
lactory somewhere In the WillametU
valley anfl parties in this city are in cor
lespondence with them in regaid to
locating here. The Board of Trade has
alto taken the matter in hand. The plant
for such a factory wilt coat about $300,000,
and it It not known what kind of Induce
ments they will want, but it is understood
that It is'rtot much. They wits want to
make contracts with the farmers In the
kiniiy of where thev locate tc raise from
hrte to five thousand acres of sugar, beets
for the factory, and experience has shown
that farmers can net froiTa fortv to seven! v-
five dollars per acre from their land In
raising sugar beets. Tests have been
made of the sugar beets raised in the
Willamette valley and they have been
found -to be of a" very high order. It it
for this reason that these parties desire to
remove their plant here.

The international monetary conference
convened at Brussels on Tuesday. The
fcllowigg nations are represented: A us
tria, Hungary, Belgium, France. Germany,
Great Britain, Greece. Italy, Netherlands,
Portugal, Rumania, Russia, Servia, Spain,
Sweden, Norway and Switzerland. The
purpose of this conference is to adopt a
policy among the nations by which an en
large! use of silver may be secured. It is
to be hoped that the conference may be
able to agree upon plans by which the pro
duct of the silver mines may be utilized as
a legal tender money.
Beerhaet. tbe Belgian prime minister
ami minister of finance, who opened tbe
proceedings, said in his inaugural address
that the conference had been called to dis
cuss one of the gravest and most complex
problems modern society ever had to face.
He extended, in the name of tbe Belgian
government, a moat cordial welcome to the
delegates. After referring to the monetary
crisis during tbe past century Beerhaet said
it was in tbe direction of an international
understanding that a solution of tbe mone
tary question was now sought. This, he
added, It in accordance with tbe taw of
progress. Numerous such understandings
had already been arrived at for tbe regu
lation of tbe common interests of tbe civi
lixed world in regard to telegraphs, rail
ways, weights and measures, and why
should not the same course be followed in
Ue ease of money. It was fitting tbe
deliberations of the conference should take
phos on the soil of a country belonging to
Latin union, but it was for the delegates of
the United States to pot forward tbe views
of their government and explain bow it
was proposed to carry tneae views into
effect Beerbeart advised Lbs delegates to
enter the disci stion without being too
greatly tsBf rested by tbe prospect of mas
ting tbe silver for which appeared to be no
employment. Montafiare Levi, as presi
dent of tbe conference, followed Beernaert.
Levi said he accepted the honor of presid
ing over tbe deliberations, knowing it was
intended for Belgium rather than himself. 1
He referred to tbe numerous attempts made
the monetary qusation, mention Log
especially tbe British gold and silver com
mission of a distinguished above all
otbe.- similar bodies by its eminently prac
tical character Tbe worst feature of the
present monetary site stion was its insta
bility. He hoped tbe conference would
sink individual interest, and keep in view
tbe higher interests of the great human

The democratic party of tbe whole
try may well rejoice over tbe fact that a
democratic president has been elected out
side tbe state of New York. Had that
iate voted for Harrison tbe democrats
would still have had a comfortable major
ity in tbe electoral college. It was not a
wholesome political condition when one
presidential election after another, with all
their stupenduous consequences, butig
upon the carrying of one state. It distort
ed the relative importance of states and tbe
relative importance of parry leaders, par-
hap, and the greatest and most far reach
ing significance ot luesday t victory is
that it loosens the clutches of New York
upon tbe throat of tbe party and transfers
political control to the sunset side of the
Alleghanies. It means an emancipated
party, a disenthraled west.
Tammany did lis work well. There seem
to be no two opiniens about this, and its in

would have been impossible. From the mo

It is probable that New Mexico and Ari
zona will now be admitted to the union as
It would have been wiser perhaps to
make all the sparsely populated territories
wait for a time, but that was not done.
Montana was adrniitad with 132.159 inhab
itants. Idaho with 84.385 and Wyoming
with but 60,705. Simple equity entitled
New Mexico and Arizona to admission at
tbe same time. The population of Arizona
ii almost exactly that of Wyoming, while
New Mexico has more people than Wyom
ing and Idaho combined.
But a republican congress desired to
strengthen the republican bold upon the
senate and tbe electoral college by way of
preventing the people from turning that
party out of power. It therefore admitted
those territories which were believed to be
securely republican and kept out tbe demo
cratic territories. It is only fair that tbe
latter should now lie admitted.
In point of population Utah has a still
better claim, Tbe figures for that territory
are 'J07,'j0.i. exceeding those of any of tbe
ail states last admitted except South Da
kota. Utah is also supposed to be demo
cratic, but there was tbe additional excuse
of polygamous practices on tbe part of tbe
Mormons. That objection was once sound,
but it is teas pertinent now. Tbe Mormon
church has apparently surrendered to civi
lization, and Utah will tsow probably come
into tbe union with a constitution in har
mony with the country's ins'itutions.

The men most St to decide as to the
details and methods of tariff revision are
those leaders of the reform movement who

the other leaders on the democratic aide in
