Stanley Matthews was a Re publican, Congress was Republican in both branches, still the resolution pas.-ed by a vote in the Senate of 48 ayes to li I noes; House, ayes IS!), nne.« 70. An amendment, proposed by Mr. Ldmuuds in the Senate, that "U.S. bond.-are payable in gold coin or its equivalent," was defeated by a vote of ayes, IS; noes, 41. There were, how ever, an occasional goldhug in the Re publican party even then, and Fraudu lent Hayes was one of them. Here turned the resolution with his veto. It passed over the executive will by a vote of 4(i to 19 in the Senate and 190 to 73 in the House. That was before your party bad flopped, however, Mr. lie porter. Now let us look at our contempor aries' suppositious case for a moment. It savs: A unit H arc orphans. Out of their parents' estate something has been lclt, a guardian ia appointed for them by the court, and with the consent of the court the guardian invests ail or part of the estate-fund in government bonds, the Interest whereon let us say is 1500 per an num. This interest ia the income for the main tenance of the orphans A and 8., and is stipu lated in the bond to be of five hundred gold dollars, and the bond says its maker will surely pay that sum without default. Teller comes along, passes liis bill, the interest is paid in silver, aud guardy and the kids find this silver is worth only #250. IS it an honest act to cheat Ibcm out of one-half of their stipulated Income? The circumstances are so dissimilar as scarcely to apply at all to the sub ject under consideration. Suppose that the guardian invested all or part of the estate in lands and other realty • when property, on the silver unit of computation, was worth something- Suppose $5,000 were thus invested; "Guardy" would he in the exact quandary that is used in the above il lustration. He would be lucky if he could sell the realty at all, and surely for not more than forty or fifty per cent, of the original instrument. Is it an honest act to juggle the finances so as to cheat people out of a half or two-thirds of their earthly possessions? Don't forget, Mr. Reporter, that it is not stipulated in the bond that govern ment bonds are payable in gold dollars. Cleveland 11., by urgent request of Wall street, in a special message to Congress, after the passage of the Matthews' resolution, tried to have in serted in subsequent issues of bonds a clause for gold payment, and offered a bonus of several millions of dollars premium for that concession, but Con gress refused to mako them payable in anything else than U. S. coin. The orphans' guardian might, of course, have drawn a gold note, and it would be legal under the clause of the Bland-Allison act of 1878, which re stored the legal tender quality of silver coin, of which it was deprived by the act of 1573. But that legal tender quality was not to apply when other wise provided in the contract, and it will be remarked that it was for this "otherwise to provide" that Congress rejected the bribe offered by Cleveland 11. Now we hope our Nooksack neigh bor will let Mr. Teller alone. He is on the right track and if he docs not blaze out the way so that the Republi can party can find the trail they will bo doomed to again wander in the wilderness till another Moses appears. THE Populists of St. Louis are mak ing a trial of the Referendum, to see how it will work—as it were. The questions submitted by their late con vention were: " What date is your choice for holding a national conven tion for the nomination of Presiden tial candidates—Monday, July 4,1898? Friday, May 26, 1899? Thursday, February 22, 1900? The ballots are similar to the Australian ticket and will be itolled by the local committees and the Populist press. The main difficulty we see is in the feasibility of the plan. As there are 597 days be tween the first date named and the last, there will probably be just that number of opinions expressed by the ballot, for the Referendum is no respector of Australian billot, or any other rule. A LARGE steel propeller with accom modation for 1,000 passengers and 250 tons of fre'ght, is to be constructed at the Detroit dry dock for service on Puget Sound, says a marine journal. It will cost 175,000 and be 165 feet long, with a 27-foot beam and depth of 13 feet. It is announced that the steamboat will be placed on the Ta coma-Whatcom route, but the sup position is that it will run to Alaska instead. HON. Benj. Butterworth, U. S.

It cannot he claimed that Hanna is oblivious to his own faults; that his conscience has become so seared by the hot blasts of experience as to no longer give premonition of right or wrong, for the voice of the people has been constantly raisin I in expostulation, and lie must, if he lias ears, have heard the continual surge of the wave of popular indignation, that has been lashed into fury by bis own infamous public acts. Mark Raima appears to the intelli gent masses as the impersonation of all that is selfish and venal, in private life; as the culmination of all that is despicable in politics,and as the repre sentative of everything that is inde cent and reprehensible in party man agement. liis message to the Presi dent, written under impulse, is a key to individuality which ailords a better insight to bis true nature than a whole series of the carefully studied acts of a calculating demagogue. A "Civil Service" Scheme. To show how devoted the Republi can party are to the principles of civil service reform and an award of public position solely on qualification, we have only to cite the particulars of a deal lately made by our " vest-pock et'' U. S. Senator to promote his chances for re-election and reward some of the ring manipulators. Gen. McMickcn's nomination for the office of Surveyor General is said to be the result of a deal made by his son Maurice, a lawyer in the Queen City, whereby it is stipulated in the bond (these loving brothers, it will be observed, are always bound by bond, written or understood) that King county shall be solid for Wilson, when needed in the Legislative contest. To make this combination more effective, another turn is given to the knob by a union of interests and forces with that paragon of pious profession and old time Superintendent of Sunday school services, John B. Allen, to induce him to lead the moral element of the party into the corrupt aud sinuous ways sanctioned by such men as Hanna. The Judge is of course to liavo a quid pro quo for this service, and thinks that the office of Federal Judge in the new district will just about fill his am bition. So the scheme goes merrily on. Gen. McMicken has already, the report goes, been nominated for Surveyor General; the act creating the new dis trict is in a fair way to become a law, and Son Maurice and Judge Allen are diligently wiring their community so as to make the puppets bob up when they push the button. It is said, however, that " The best laid schemes of mice and men aft gay aglee." We'll see what we shall see. THE CAUSE OF ANNIE'S SPLEEN.— Mr. Scobey gives, in the Chicago Tri bune, the reason why Annie Besant in the issue of that paper of Dec. sth, be rated Olympia as a " deserted shell of a town," when she visited it on a lec ture tour earlier in the year. Mr. S. gives the true reason of the animus which made everything look sad and sear through her eyes, and that was the meagre patronage accorded her lecture; but he does not tell that she had, on a previous visit, offended many theosophists by what they considered unfair criticisms of Dr. Judge, one of the shining lights of their creed. Miss Besant, and the titled lady who trav eled with her, declared the small audi ence to bo the result of a general boy cott, felt elsewhere and everywhere they went, but in a less degree. Her " roast" of Olympia was simply an ex hibition of spleen as unusual to those of exalted nature as it was unexpected in one who is the exponent of a creed of such transcendental loveliness. Such ebulitions of bile 'twere better to pass by with silent contempt. MCKENNA BLUNDERS. —Members of Congress are unbounded in their criti cism of the act of Judge McKenna in sending congratulations to Boss Hanna. They declare that no party fealty can excuse one who has been elevated to his exalted position to stoop to congratulate any man upon a success which, when based upon principle, involves questions on which our best citizens honestly differ; and when the victor in a contest comes forth with scorched plumage, any guardian of Justice should at least refrain from an expression of the "Old Boy" which constitutes the basic stratem of poor human nature. ONE of the projectors of the new Pop paper to be issued by Cline & Co., said the other day that it will not de pend upon Olympia for support, for it was to be a " State" paper. In other I words its sponsors will aim high and doubtless for the same reason that Mulcahy gave for elevating the barrel of his blunderbuss—he thought "the darned thing carried low." A*-».

We an ii"t -urpri.-cd at this statement al though -tleh eeleritv witli wliieli result follow* d cause is unusual, even in thisuay of swift- happenings. It will be remembered that tlie Orrgonitt n a few weeks ay<> published an artiele on " Legitimate Journalism," in which it attempted to draw a wide distinction of merit between a journal that lias fought its way to the front rank and papers that have Leen established " by simpletons, on inherited wealth." Al though the remark was made in a gen eral way, there could be no other ap plication than to Mr. Hearst, who has mail*' such model newspapers of the I'sitiiiim r and the Jonntnl , and is even now figuring upon an equally exten sive project of establishing a metro politan silver newspaper in Chicago. Mergenthaler machines,costing $11.0(10 apiece, are to him as marbles to the average schoolboy, and a perfecting press or two does not make any ma terial impression upon his Mock of copper-mine stock. Connecting these two events together—the Orrgonian's comment and the purchase of first class equipments for a city paper—it seems that the innocent looking sen tence has fallen under the excitable optic of tlie King of Journalism, and he has not let the grass grow under his resolution to "get even" with the Oregonian. PROSPECT OF fusion Tdajram, a gold-bug organ in Portland, alluding to the calls by Democrats and Silver Republicans of Oregon for holding their State Conventions in Portland on March 23d, says: "The Union party, composed largely of politicians who either do not know where they belong or else do know where they are not wanted, and the middle-of-the road Populists have yet to act. but as the air seems to be surcharged with fusion and anything else to advance the cause of silver and defeat sound money, there is little ifoubt but what these factional forces will join in the love feast and hold their conventions the same day. The programme con templated seems to consist of an ap portionment of the offices and the co operation of all to elect the entire ticket. I low well the project will suc ceed, or whether or not the white winged dove of peace and harmony will continue to hover over the machi nations of these office-holding politi cians, remains to be seen." REMARKABLE FATALITY. —Three sud den deaths occurred of residents in Se attle, within a. period of twenty-four hours, last week. Jos. E. Gallagher, 30 years of age, former clerk of the municipal court and well known as a Democratic politician, died suddenly on a train 100 miles south of Portland, tuberculosis being the cause. Mrs. Martha Rose, 3fi years old, died in a cab while riding from Beacon Hill to her home at Valentine station, but no cause is assigned. A. Cameron, 57 years of age dropped dead, while pack ing goods in the Alaska General Sup ply Co.'s store, from, probably, heart failure. THE Northwestern Fruit Grower's Association, which lately met in Fort land, elected the following officers for the ensuing year: President, Dr. N. G. Blalock, of Walla Walla; Secretary, W. S. Bolster, of Spokane; Treasurer, W. S. Offner, of Walla Walla ; Vice President, for Oregon, E. L. Smith, of Hood River; Vice President, for Idaho, E. A. Gibson, of Caldwell; Vice President for British Columbia, Thomas E. Sharp, of the Experiment Station, and Vice President for Wash ington, Frank Wheeler, of North Yakima. DISAPPOINTMENT KILLS. —An illus tration of this is afforded by the death of Mayor Templeton, of British Co lumbia, Sunday, from an apoplectic stroke, that is supposed to have re sulted from his overwhelming defeat at the recent municipal election. His death is the more tragic since two ex mayors of that city have experienced sudden deaths; ex-Mayor Oppenhci mer having died a fortnight ago there, and ex-Mayor Cope a few weeks ago suffered death from drowning on the Skaguay trial. TRAGIC EXIT OF SOCIETY FAVORITES. —Mrs. Lucelle Lane, a daughter of ex-Senator Blackburn, shot herself in her apartments in the Wellington Hotel, Washington, on the morning of the 16th. The family claim the shooting was accidental. Miss Black burn was a belle of the Capital City during Cleveland's first administration. Two contemporaries—Misses Bayard and Garland died sensational deaths, and Miss Herbert lately jumped from a third-story window from suicidal in tent. THE extra train eervicc on the Northern Pacific will go into effect on or before the 25th inst. The train, says Mr. Charlton, the Assistant Gen eral Passenger Agent at Portland, will leave Portland at 5 in the evening and arrive at Tacoma at 10 o'clock and Se attle about 11. Returning the local will leave the upper Sound late at night and arrive in Portland early in the morning. A sleeper, wliich may be converted iuto a chair-car in day time will be used in this service. IT is expected that the Superin tendent of Public Instruction will have a quarter of a million dollars in school funds to apportion to the sever al counties in a few days.

WASHINGTON", Jan. 11, IsDB. How cau a President who is a conscientious bin.etallist keep a Sec re! try of the Treasury in his Cabinet who in so wedded to the gold standard as to < ndorse the statement that bi mi tallist—a double standard—is an impossibility? That was the question asked in the mimds of many when Secretary Cage, rilling beside the chairman of the House Committee on Banking and Currency, endorsed that statement made by ex-Senator Ed monds, President of the so-called monetary conference, and believed to be the paid attorney of the gold ring, who appeared before that committee in behalf of the gold standard bill prepared by the Commission. The question would probably not have been asked had not Senator Chandler just previously stated that he had Mr. Hungry Hair is the beginning of Baldness. Protracted hunger means starvation, and starvation means death. When the scalp is starved the hair dies at the roots. What's the matter with your hair? It gets dry, harsh, brittle, dull of color, the ends split. You wash it and brush it, but it still comes out. It's hungry I If washing and brushing would stop starvation, then all the expense of a horse's keep would be a sponge and a currycomb. Hunger needs bread, not a bath. That is why AYER'S Hair Vigor 0 Prevents Baldness. « It supplies the requisite nourishment for the hair, and the hair grows. It restores the tone of the scalp and so induces the secretions of the fol licles that the coloring matter is renewed and fading hair regains its natural color, dandruff disappears, and the hair becomes thick and glossy. Men and women whose abundant hair is the envy and admiration of friends, admit that they owe it to Ayer's Hair Vigor. '• Last winter I discovered a bald spot on my head as large as a silver dollar. A few ap plications of Ayer's Hair Vigor started a healthy growth of hair, and In a short time tho disappearance of the bald spot was a subject of wonderment to my friends and pleasure to myself." A. M. ALLEN, No. 3116 Locust St., St. Louts, Mo. " I have used your Hair Vigor for a great many years and know of nothing eaual to it ns a hair dressing and restorer. It has given satisfaction among my customers who speak highly in its praise." A. E. FIELDS, Barber, No. 45 Princess St., Kingston, O. " I am sixty-nine years old and have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for fifteen years to prevent my hair from turning gray. It is on excellent preparation for that purpose and I shall always use it." JOHN HECHTMAN, Osseo, Minn. " I find Ayer's Hair Vigor to be indispensable. My hair fell out for five years, but a few applications of the Vigor stopped it. It gave the hair a beautiful glossy appearance, and I also found that It did not affect curling or crimping." M. E. SNYDEK, Brantforil, Out, McKinley's own word for it tliat he wag in favor of bimetallism, and to clinch his statement added: "Mr. McKinley is as good a bimetallrst as I am." If that is true, Senator Chan dler can hardly be a good bimetallist, notwithstanding his constant claims to be such. Senator Chandler at the same time said that Mr. McKinley told him that the international bi metallism fake was not dead, and that he intended to send the commission to Europe again. A considerable number of voters were probably fooled in the Presidential campaign by that international bimetallism plank of the Republican platform, but Mr. McKin ley must have lost much of the political shrewdness with which he has been credited if he believes it can be used to fool them again. So far as they can be seen, the re sults of the first week's consideration of the Hawaiian treaty by the Senate are not satisfactory to the advocates of annexation. Last week when notice was given that the treaty would be taken up Monday and considered daily until disposed of, its friends were very confident that votes enough were in sight to furnish the two thirds needed for ratification, and it looked as though their confidence was justified. Presto, change, and ratification is again in doubt, owing to the defection of Senators who had been counted for it. Among those who have changed and come squarely out against ratification are Senators Thurston, of Nebraska, and Gear of lowa, both of whom claim to have been influenced by the sugar beet industry of their States; and Senators Wellington, of Maryland, Spooner, of Wisconsin, and Maeon, of Illinois, are now placed in the doubtful column. Unless Mr. McKinley can whip these Senator back into line, or bribe them with patronage, into vot lug lor atim-xafion, tin re isn't much probability of the treaty being ratified. The l oss of the log boss is what they are eailing Senator Joseph Fire alarm Foraker just now. There isn't the slightest doubt that lloss Hanoi owes ids election to the Senate to Foraker, nor that he would rather have owed it to any oilier mail in the world. Foraker was m Washington waiting for llaima, through Mr. Mc- Kinley, to g.-t down and ask for his help and agree to his terms. H-inmi though he could buy his way through without regard to Foraker. At the last minute he got rattled and notified Mr. McKinley to got Foraker's help on the best terms tie could, but to get it. It took Mr. McKinley and Senator Foraker two or three hours to come to li-nits, but iu the end Foraker bad bis way and had sent the telegram to Columbus that insured Han mi's elec tion to the Senate. The terms upon which Mr. McKinley secured Foraker's assistance for llanna were, of course, secret, but they probably include much that would interest Ohio Republicans and were certainly advantageous, per sonally, to Foraker. The irrepressible Jerry Sinip-on in jected a little amusement into lite close of the civil service debate in the House by telling the anti's that whether they would be allowed to consider a bill for the modification or repeal of the civil service law, later on, would depend entirely on the Speaker, of whom he added: " lie is the whole thing and runs the House." Amid the laughter which followed Lemuel Eli tiuigg, Boss Piatt's man, tried to get funny by turning to Jerry and asking: "Have you consulted the Speaker?" "No; he never con sults me and I never consult him." The Republican members of the Senate Committee on Finance went to pigeon-hole the ' Stanley Matthews resolution, declaring that all U. S. bonds are payable in silver, at the option of the government, which was offered by Senator Teller, and referred to this committee. They say that the reporting of the resolu tion will cause needless agitation; that it has been adopted by Congress and that its readoption now by the Senate, when it is known that the House would not be allowed to vote upon it, would accomplish nothing. But the Democrats have no idea of allowing the resolution to be smoth ered. They intend that it shall he reported and voted upon. It will put the Senators on record, AS well as serve as a notice to the gold standard administration that its efforts for gold bond legislation also belong in the " needless agitation" class. The House having let off its surplus steam is discussing the civil service question a whole week is now jogging along with routine work 011 the ap propriations. DKM. THE prospect of Corbett's admis sion ns U. 8. Senator from Oregon, never very bright, grows " beautifully less."

COED WATKK REDUCED THE FEVEK. —Bessie Anderson, the beautiful and gifted daughter of (Jen. Adml Ander- son, deceased, at one time Chief Engi neer of tlie N. P. Railroad Co., attempt ed to end her life, Saturday even ing, l>y plunging into the bay at Taeoma. Miss A. had liccn suffering from fever for several days and be came delirious on Friday. She was constantly watched, but escaped by saying she desired to step into a room adjoining. Soon as she felt the cold water, however, the delirium left her, and being a good swimmer,she battled with the waves till rescued by John ISurns, a 'longshoreman who saw the plunge. Miss A. occupied a high so cial position in Philadelphia and Xew York, which has been maintained at Taeoma during her residence of sev eral vears. THE Middle-of-the-Road Pops met in Convention tit St. Louis, Mo., a few days ago and resolved to trudge along alone hereafter. They call themselves "The People's Party," although they have cut loose from a majority of the people by their action. THE first Labor Congress in the Northwest met at Spokane Tuesday. Its abject is to unite all labor organ izations of the Northwest with a cen tral union. DUKRANT'S body was cremated nt Altedena, a suburb of Pasadena, last week, and the ashes fill an ordinary tin dispatch box nine incites long, six inches wide and three and a-hulf inches deep. The key is in possession of Mrs. Durrant, who treats the box of ashes with all tho reverence she be stowed upon the casket of flesh. That his body be cremated was tho last wish Durrant expressed to his father, and it was probably to conceal front the world the existence of abnormal passions which would afford an explan ation of the motive of the crime charged to him, and affords a ground work for the stoicism that is doubtless the result of heredity. A shootin}» affray occurred near Wallula Tuesday afternoon. It ap pears that, about 5 o'clock that even ing, Indian Jim, accompanied by his son and several other Indians, went to the farm of William F. DeLong, with whom they had had trouble, and or dered him to vacate the premises. They threatened to burn his house and commit other depredations. l)e Long went into the house, got a gun, and in order to protect himself and property, shot and killed Indian Jim's son and wounded another Indian. When the other Indians saw their companions were shot, they hurried away. The report of the shooting soon reached Wallula, and caused great excitement. A hold-up took place about dark, in North Seattle, Wednesday night. A highwayman, at the point of a re volver, relieved Alfred McCord, a stranger, of about SSO in gold and a fine repeating watch.
