A two-horse tread-mill sawing machine was in operation at the academy cutting wood last night. - The Walla Walla papers hare one item devoted to irost, and another to new pota toes and ripe strawberries. Nearly all the stock for the $40,000 hotel ' at Heppner has been subscribed, and it will begin to loom up next summer. Grass is growing nicely on the hills; bur it would have been muh better if tlie frosty weather had not come so early. Mr. C. McPherson and family, of Hay Creek, moved into the city during the week, and will remain during the winter. Work on the grounds for the new depot is progressing rapidly. The building will be an artistic affair and an ornament to the city. There has been $7000 subscribed for the new brick Catholic church. As soon as spring opens ground will be broken for this edifice. Another case of mistaken identity was in the arrest of a man supposed to be Gibbs at Pendleton. Ha was another man, and was released. Some unconscionable scoundrel has stolen a sack of shorts from the poor bouse at Pendleton. He is the meanest man in the northwest. The highest vote cast in Washington was for representative in congress, 53,531, which would make the population of the new state about 234,124. Since the election news Republican roost ers have been confined to their roosts by a pulmonary affection. Democratic roosters are doing the crowing now. We mentioned in yesterday's daily that Mr. J. E. Enright had accepted a, position in the Western Union telegraph office, ic should have read 0. R. & N. William H.

In faii annual mport the governor of Washington says the great staple of Eastern Washington is wheat, the soil bein pecu liarly adapted to the growth of this cereal. The same can be said of the whole Inland Empire. Some of our streets and alleys are in a very bad condition. The erection of numer ous buildings has necessitated much disor der in some of our thoroughfares, but there 18 much disorder that is unexuusabSe. Our authorities should look to it, that our streets are put in repair. Saturday night at La Grande the throat of a woman named Georgie was cut by an unknown man during a drunken q'mirel.

The congressional committee consisting ol Senators irye, of Maine, Dawes, of Mas sachusetts, lurpie, of Indiana, and Davis, of Minnesota, passed through the city to day. Senators Frye and Davis were accoin pamed by their wives and Dawes by his daughter. They were met at the Locks by Hons. Z. F. Moody, E. L. Smith, Robert A J ays. Col. T. S Ling, and Messrs. A. o, Macalhster, B. S. Huntington, E. B. Mo Farland, D. M. French and John Michell. J he special on which the committee were stopped at the Locks about half an hour, and under guidance of Major Handbury ex amined the work. Senator Frye expressed his surprise that the worlt shoulil have been undertaken on such a stupendous scale, and that it could have been finished much cheaper. The work is progressing this year very satisfactorily, and our people hope that the plan at present adopted will be con tinued to the finish. In conversation with Senator Davis he assured ns he was "all right" he was a western man and fuliy understood the necessity of liberal appropriations for th:s work, li hen east ern men visit the coast and realiza our ne cessities they are generally in favor of a lib eral policy toward internal improvements. and we shall expect much good from the visit of these senators and congressmen dur ing the past year. The party, after leaving the city, proceeded to Spokane Falls, and will return and take the Short Line to their home. At the election of officers Monday night for the Wasco District Fair Association the following were elected: Geo. H. Thompson. F. P. Mays and H. C. Hooper, directors for two years; G. J. Farley, W. S. Thompson and Hugh Gourlay for three years. The East Oregonian learns from parties down from Spokane Monday morning of an accident Saturday night in which a subject of the Flowery Kingdom was decapitated. He was employed in the construction work, and fell off a car in front of the wheels. His head was severed from the body as cleanly as if a guillotine instead of a car wheel were the instrument of death. Wc learn from the Dayton Inlander that Wednesday evening when Fate Brown was washing lor supper at the Short Older House's large pistol which he carried in nis coat pecket fell from the pocket and hit on the wash stand in snch a way as to dis charge the same. The ball entered Brown's right breast and passed backward and up ward, lodging probably against the shoulder blade. Brown has thus far felt but litt'e inconvenience from the wound. We learn trom an exchange that Chelan is having a little boom of its own this fall. Some forty houses have been built and others are underway. The steamer Belle of Chelan is used to bring down rafts of logs from the head of the lake, and the Omaha. another fine little steamer, is just ready for business. The inaccessibility of the town is the only thing against its rapid growth. A wagon road from the mouth of the Wen atchee to Chelan City would be a great ben efit to all that side of the river, both above and below. The following are the jurors who are sum- I j mooed to annear at tne nexr term oi xne circuit court, to be held at the court house, in this city, commencing Mondav, Novem ber 11th: C 1 Crandall, merchant, The Dalle; A B Fairchild, tanner.

Mr. Henry Steggman and wife, of Hart- land, are in the city. Mr. Frank T. Sampson, of the Warm Springs agency, is in the city. Pasco has assumed municipal honors, with Capt. W. P. Gray as mayor. Over 1900 visitors have been at the Shos hone Falls during the past two years. Several loads of wood from the neighbor ing hills are being hauled into the city. A canal project between the Walla Walla and Columbia rivers is talked of in Wallula. Last Saturday a dead n an was found in a cave near Bridal Veil. He was not identified. The CorvaUis jai! is empty. Not even." a "drunk" or petty larceny thief. The town is dull. It is reported that the daily mail service between Baker City and Cornucopia will be discontinued. The Aalorian says over S2a00 a day is no being expended for railroad work in C!atsoi county. Three head of valuable horses were killed by a passing train near Ellensburgh last Sunday night. The Astorian and Transcript of Astoria are "locking horns." Brethren, you should dwell together in unity. R'iv. W. G. Simpson suffered a tempo rary relapse a few days ago; but at last ac counts was slowly improving. The Ellensburgh liemsler gives notice that the editor is alwavs "at home" to those who loaded for e litors." Telephone poles are being erected in El lensburgh. A most perfect message system will be iu operation in a few days. An Attorii justice of the poace has fined an umbrella thief $39. It rains down there by the sea, and umbrellas are uecessary ai ti des of comfort. The Eugene Journal has an editorial proving Hon. Lisli Applegite a "white" man. H i was never charged with being a negro or Indian. Bro. Snyder, of the Dallas Obserner, ia making it lively for the mo.a backs in 113 vicinity. Go if, Al., and make the fur fly or wake them up. Col. Stocularger, formerly commissioner of the general land ollice in Washington, now on a visit to the northwest, cave us a pleasant call to-day. ihe lonng Aiens Progressive club en tered the election contest in Biker City last Monday with a full list of candidates. We should organize such a club in The Dalles, Mrs. Davis, a young wife of Stayton, in a ht of jealously because her husband at tended a dance at Mehama without her, took poison. Antidotes were administered and she recovered. fnneville and .Astoria are fighting over insurance rates. The matter cannot be remedied, while the compact system pre vails in Oregon, and every company is a member of the compact. The Umatilla Indians, near Wallula, are catching salmon in large quantities. This is lessening the number of this species of fish in the northwest, and in a few years the people will be salmon hungry. Gilmore's band, which gave performances in Portland during the week, may be in duced to visit The Dalles if proper induce ments were held out. This is undoubtedly the best band of musicians, vocal or other wise, who have ever visited the coast. The universal expression of all of our cit izens who have occasion to go away from borne is: The Dalles is the prettiest and healthiest place in the northwest. Wo do not want to live anywhere else if we had a good water snpply. The Third Regiment band, O. N. G Mr. S. J. Tuily, leader, will bol l regular re hearsals in ihe old armory Monday and Sat urday evenings, and an orchestra rehearsal of stringed instruments will be held in the Council Chambers this evening. - Henry Rinehart, register of the La Grande land office, says that no more tilings or en tries can be made until the vacancy caused by the death of the late receiver is filled. A memorandum of all business will be kept, but no final action will be taken in any case. Bro. Kincaid, of the Eugene Journal, says "the people of The Dalles are rejoicing over the prospect of the early establishment of roller flour mills at that place." Our esteemed editorial confrere should read the papers, and he would have learned the fact th.it this city has had roller flouring mills for six months or more. The Dallas Observer has an item of a man filing on a homestead claim of 1 33-100 acres of land, and wants to know if he can not perftct his right by filing on the re mainder 58 77-100. Yes, of course, he can preempt 100 acres, 160 more as desert land, 1C0 timber cnlture, and buy as much as he wants to from the railroad or wagon road company. The Ashland Tidings give the following mild description of a very brutal fight: J. J. Houck, of Gold Hill, hasn't as many thumbs as he has been accustomed to. He and A. J. Barlow of that place had a "dis cussion" the other day, during which Mr. Houck's thumb dropped into Barlow's mouth, and the latter, in emphasis of his views, bit the thumb off clean. Barlow has been held in $250 bonds to account for the accident before the circuit court, and Houck is having the stub of nis thumb carefully attended by a physician. Astorian: Chas. Julil, a young man aged 24, formerly employed by Bergman & Co., now ranching on Gray's River, came over to the city yesterday, and meeting Jas. Marr on the street, said "give me that $23 50, you owe me for board." Shortly afterward he walked feeblv into Christensen & Gor's back ollice, and said 'l am stabbed; when I asked Marr for the money he pulled out a long knife and stabbed me." Investi gation showed an ugly cut in the abdomen, to the right of the navel. Marr was ar rested and will be given investigation in Justice May's court to-day on a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon. Juhl had his wound dressed, and up to last evening it had developed no serious symptoms. From Friday's Daily. Thanksgiving day approacbeth. The river is at the lowest stae. Mr, John Roth, of. Kinsley, is in the city. A. Young, of Bakeoyen, is in Mr. Geo. the city. Mr. J. J. the city. Cozar;, of Grait ccunty, is in There i an ab mdact supply of ood on the beach. Mr. John Somerville, of Portland, is in the city. A son of Rev. W. G. Simpson is sick with a light attack of fever. Mr John Grant, who owns sheep on a thousand hills, is in the city. Miss Anna, daughter of J. L. Thompson, is sick with a mild form of fever. Mr. Allen Grant, one of the sheep kings of Eastern Oregon, is in the city. The taxpayers last year were about .1300 and the present number is over 2000. Rev. G. W. Grannis and wife, of Astoria, are in the city, and will remain a few days. Mr. John Brookhonse, of Dufur, is in the city. He is in his jolliest humor, and says his ranch looks better than any on the Pa cific slope. Why do the turkeys roost so high? The answer is: Thanksgiving day is High. The turkey is being fattened for the stom ach of the gormaud, so that he may give thanks in a becoming state of mind. M. L. O'Shay. who has a large band of sheep near the John Day river, will in a few days take a trip to the Arkansas hot springs. We would thank people from all over the county for bringing to this ollice, when they come to town, such news items as may be of general interest. The assessor has been busy for t'uo past few days footing up the statistics of the assessment roll. He has now completed his work, and his figures ar3 quite flattering to bis ability. We learn from sheep men that grass was never in better coudition. Sheep are an pearing well, and have every indication of passing the winter nil right. Messrs. J. M. Richardson, Frank Lell, Mat Fraua of Anteloue, and John Kimtick of Grass Valley, leading sheep men of Was co county, are in the city to-day. Thompson's addition is the most sightly of any in the city. Yesterday afternoon the sun's rays reflected on a pane or' glass iu house in this addition equal to an electric light. We admired the sight for several miuutes. Mr. Hugh Frazer, of this city, received a barrel of genuine usquebaugh, direct from Dundee, Scotland, last week. 16 is tne same fluid that Rob Rog McGregor drank btfore he was justified at Dumbarton. It was bronght to Chas. Stubling's Germania. In conversation with persons who hrve heard from all portions of the county we earn that fall grass is growing nicely, and that it is better now than it has been for ears. Stock is in good condition, and no more than an average loss may be expected this winter. Would it not be advisable for the young men of The Dalles to start an athletic club? There is splendid material iu this city to have one of the best club3 in Oregon. All young men who are fond of athletic sports and physical exercise should meet and take for rial steps to organize an athletic associa tion. W. A. Whiting, formerly of The Dalles, the musician who tried to skip out with a cornet valued at $25, which he borrowed from Frank Haekins, was allowed to plead guilty to petit larceny in the ctiniin.il court Wednesday at Portland. Judge Stearns sentenced the prisoner to serve ninety days in the gloomy depths of the Multnomah county bastile. The defendant seemed pleased to get off so easily. The total value of assessable property in this county this year is $2,600,000. There is an increase of 50 per cent, in the nnmber of tax payers this year over last, and we have two hundred more names on the roll than there were when Sherman county was included in Wasco. This ih an execlleut showing for Assessor Gourl iy, when the fact is considered that he reduced the val uation of sheep 50 cents per head, cattle $7 per head HDil money, notes, accounts, and mortgages were assessed at 50 per cent, of their face value. Iu many instances property was assessed at a much lower value. Thi3 shows tl.e energy displayed by this ol&cial, and well merits the commenda tion of our people. The connty court, after carefully weigh ing all reasons for and against the reduction of the levy of tuxes this year, came to the conclusion that a tnx of 20 mills n-onld be the proper one, and so decided. The con trolling reason was that there are very many end the largest taxpayers who are as able to pay 20 mills at 10, who have not suffered from the drouth, aud the reduction would be favorable fo allalike. The county court will be careful that no taxes be de clared delinquent of those who are not able to pay on account of the loss of crops. A man came all the way from Tygh ridge yesterday to inform us that it was probable that Ohio had given a Democratic majority on last -Tuesday. Still later, Sheriff Her bert called us aside, and with an air of awe and amazement, whispered into our ear the ominous words, "Did you hear from Ohio?" We told him yes, and for the benefit of all future inquirers we will state that we are well satisfied Ohio has gone 'Democratic, that Iowa is close, Massachusetts mug wumpish. and it would be no matter of sur prise if Kentucky would support prohibi tion, and Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, Virginia, North end South Carolina allow negroes to exercise the election franchise. We cannot be surprised now at anything in a political line, and are constantly on the qui vive lor wonders in the political world. A SiAT VHAtj MO.-WJ1EU. I One of the Great Curiosities or East ern Ore con The Indians Nrrons liold in Fr.riucr Venrs i'lsli TVUhout Eyes. It is not 'generally known that wc have a rival of the far-famed mammoth cave of Kentu-.-ky in the wilds of southeastern Ore- , - .i c i. u r ' i : gon. lint sucn is iiie laci, u mc iviiuwiug description will verify: Malheur cave is located in a sags-brush plain about one mile from the head of the south of" the Maheur river. 'he-re is a small basin at its mouth. J he navn is twentv feet wine and six feet hi. at its entrance, and has on incline down ward for the first 200 feet, and then turns to the northeast aud runs very nearly straight to the water, a distance of one-haif mile from its'niouth. It will average tilty feet wide und twenty feet high and is very uniform in its structure, the walls running up about six feet on either side, aud then commence to arch over, and certainly form the finest arch in the whole family of caves that were ever discovered. It is grand almost beyond description and rivals the great Mammoth cave in its smoothness of character and uniformity. The first 250 yards is as smooth as a floor, then are iound piles of rubbish or debris that have accumulated by falling from the ceiling above, 100 yards apart, the last one being something over 100 yards from the water. There is no difficulty in reaching the wa ter, it runs on either side in a trough from the main pool a distance of 100 feet settling down on either side, leaving the floor crowning t he water is remarnabiy ciear; one can see the sand on the bottom at the depth of four feet, aud it appears to have no outlet, as it is perfectly still and quiet; it is good drinking water: This wonderful curiosity lias to be seen to be appreciated. It is truly of basalt for mation and is auarteuarv. the waiis are houev-combed in many places, the wall on the south side sets on a horizontal basement of emotive rocks. This magnificent cave has evidently been used in time by the Indians as a fortifica tion; the entrance has been walled up witn some flonr which Mr. Wells had behind the door. In devouring the Hour the hogs closed their only means of escape, and were left to their fate. After eating up every thing iu the house they had no means of re treating. When Mr. Wells arrived at his camp after an absence of two weeKs, hia surprise can well be imagined on bursting open his door, to find three dead hogs on the floor, iu pretty good condition but lit erally famished to death for want of water. The potatoes were all eaten, likewise the flour and ether provisions, and the bedstead, table and chairs were badly demolished. If he had left a tub of water in the cabin, the porkers would have been alive on his return. and his cabin would have been furnished with hog meat for some davs. As it was. Mr. Il'ells was injured in a way that he could not well repair his I033; but hereafter his sheep camp in the mountains will have a locked door. TELEGRAPHIC. stone, and there are. also, two walls breastworks on the inside, running trom each corner of the entrance diagonally near the center some fifty feet long; this was for a second defense in case they were driven back lroin the mouth. Around and above the mouth of the cave there are considerable fine clippings where the aborigines hvae sharpened their stone imDlements which were made out ot ousid ian or volcanic ulass. I think that the water is in the end of the cave, but cannot tell without further ex idoring. I was informed by two parties that fish have been cuught in the cave that weie blue in color and eyeless. UKA.VT COtSTY ITEMS. Colled From the Local Colnmnn of the Cirant Co. Sews, Chris Hardy, who took a band of sheep to Montana ia the spring, writes that he in tends wintering them there being unable to find a market for them. Snow already gives a whitish cast to old Strawberry mountain. That is right. What this country wants is plenty of suow piled up in the natural reservoir the high mountains. We understand that Mr. Guernsey con templates getting out a ton of rock from his project shaft on the mountain, and having it clothed by the Keystone Mill at Quartz burg. He certainly has seme liue looking ore and is confident that depth will add richness to the ledge. The ATetr received a letter Saturday night that had been eleven days coming up from Portland, via Heppuer. What a mis take was made, after all, by the postal de partment, in not continuing our mail matter by way of Baker City, as formerly, theu we could be reasonably sure of a letter from Portland in four days at the farthest. The road between here and Baker on Burnt river mountain, away over by the counly line is said ' to be awful bad. Freighters report it almost impassable for a shot t distance. Cannot something be done about it? We often wonder if Baker county would not send a man or two over to repair this particular mountain. From Mr. Jesse Hoicsworth who arrived in town Monday evening we learn that the jnry in the case of State vs. D. L. Shirk, at Harney, late Saturday eytniug retidered a verdict of acquittal. The scae was begun Mend iy and Friday 1 hu jury took the case for deliberation. The first ballot stood eleven for acquittal r.nd one for conviction. kauti subsequent ballot was the same and thus they hung for thirty hours. The eleven were determined to stmd firm to their honest convictions, and in this imper ial virtue the one was lacking. He was persuaded to j in the insjority, after a long tune, and theu there was great rejoicing. Mr. Shirk s numerous friends at Harney were as highly elated over the termination of the trial seemingly as were the defendant and his family to be rid of the awful uncer tainty atiending it. This case is the only one of great importance on the docket of liarney county aud had the counsel for the state on one side and Hon. M. Dustin and C. W. Parrish on behalf of the defense. Mr. Shirk has a number of tried and true friends iu this vicinity who are glad that he stands vindicated by the law before his fellow men. The Whereabouts of Gibbs. Oregonian. "My honest opinion," said a Portland deputy sheriff Wednesday afternoon, "is that Gibbs is sojourning among the vine clad hills of California. If he is not there, he has made his way to Mexico, where per haps he will be safe forever." " Why?' do you ask? Well, 1 will tell vou. I had a couversation with a colored porter who runs between San Francisco and San Jose. He told me that he saw Gibbs at S in Jose nearly a week ago. ' Gibbs came up to him and shook hands with him, and the porter asserts positively that it was he, He knows Gibbs intimately, having been on the rond with him eight years, anil cannot be deceived as to his identity. This porter further told me that Uibbs looked at hi in, as if be was suspicious or mistrustful. Hu eyes had an inquiring look and he ramained but a few minutes. This porter did not know that Uibbs was wanted for murder until he came up here. He then could understand the peculiar actions of Gibbs for the hrot time. Very few people in Cal ifornia, he said, appear to have any know! edge of this Gibbs affair, and not a word is seen in regard to it in the smaller country papers. 'It is my firm belief," continued the oSi cer, "that the porter told me the truth, for he is a particular friend of mine. II that is Gibbs, as I have every, reason to believe, by this time he no doubt is safe in Mexico, where he will successfully lose himself among the natives, many of whom' bear a cIoe resemblance to him in features and color." letters A.lverti8ca. The following is thj list of letters i maining in The Dalles postoffice, uncalled for Saturday, November 9, 18S9. Persons calling for these letters will please give the date on which they were advertised. Anderson, Peter Blandin, Ella W Buckley, Mrs Burger, J S Butterfield, Harrison Booth, John "The Columbia a B iptlst Elvei" The above is the heading of an article in the Herald of Trulh, published in San Francisco, by a correspondent. The follow ing are excerpts which we publish to show the gist of the communication: Did you know that the Columbia river was owned by a Baptist? Well, it is, that is, a part of it; the better part ot nve miles of it at any rate. How does that strike you? This is one of the biggest things out of jail. Do you know how big the Colum bia river is? Well, it is ten miles wide at the mouth. Baptists don't own any of the month of it though don't need any; they have plenty of mouth and tongue, too, with out it. But the Columbia, at Tho Dalles, is a Baptist riyer. It is at that point one-half mile wide, and eighty-six feet on an average through the center. All that water and all the hsh that swim in that water for nve miles above the city, are the property of Rev. O. D. Taylor. I must tell you that he owns about 5,000 or 6,000 acres np anil down the stream on the Washington side. Rev. O. D. Tavlor takes no man's dust behind his team of fly ers, ills great uncle was rresident laylor, hence he is of good stock. He is an able Baptist preacher, and is worth nearly or quite $200,000, the most of which he has made in the last six years, if yon wish to be treated like a king by one who knows bow to do the princely thing in a princely way, just give Rev. O. D. Taylor a call some tine day. Don't all call ac once, nor take all vour "sisters, and cousins and aunts," but call single file, and if yon do Lot have a good time at 1 he Dallse, I shall conclude that there is something wrong with you. I was np to The Dalles for the fourth time in my life last week, and the fourth time was the charm. ' Shortness or ifreaib.

The particulars of the shooting scrape at Farmington, in which William Russell shot David Canty, are as follows : Russell and a companion, a cripple, were pessing through Farmington with a raceho'-se, bound lor Coeur d' Alene. They stopped at Hint place and entered a srloon. Russell's f: lend was intoxicated, and while drinking at the bar, slipped and fell. At this iu. ident, several young fellows who weie scr ted at a table, among whom was Canty, laisetl a loud laugh. Canty, being the n ore obstreperous, was approached by Ri ssell, who exclaimed: "You , y u would laugh at a cripple, would yt u," at the same time drawing a pistol and firing at Canty's bead. The ball entered below the left temple and pasted out below the right jaw. Russell was immediately arrested and has been conveyed to Colfax. The shoot ing occurred riaturday at noon, and on the Sunday following Canty died from the effect of his wound. Ru'jsell narrowly escaped lynching at Farmington. He claims that the weapon was aecidently discharged. A Crt& to the i'ublic. Olympia S. Murray, M. D., female spec ialist. Has practiced on the Pacific coast for tho past twenty-five years.

Tho San Franctaro Board of Health Xotlfy Consumers tl hich is the Best Bakins Powder. Seattle Post intelligencer. "Big Bob" Satta, the Indian murdered on the Swinomish reservation, near La Conner, Oct. 7th., by the four Indians, Charley Williams, Tom Alexis, Charley Seatit and Big Bill, who are now in the King county jail awaiting trial, was a victim to Indian superstition. It has always been a superstition among Pacific coast tribes that when a death occurred some "tenanimous man', (meaning Indian doctor), was directly re sponsible, and it followed as an unwritten law that the member of tribe most open to suspicion should be put to death. It was supposed that the enlightening in fluences of civilization bad dissipated this dark superstition, but it seems such is not the case. Big Bob, the victim of this tragedy, had claimed to be a "tenanimous man," and bad so worked upon the cred ulity of his people that when a number of deaths occurred upon the reservation the finger of suspicion was at once pointed at him. The Iudians held a council and decided tbat their only safety lay in the death of the medicine maa and four of their number were appointed to execute what they called retributive justice in the most summary manner possible. Indian Agent Salmon was told that Big Bob bad been sentenced to death, but koowing the unreliability of bis informants, laughed at them. Early Tuesday morning Big Bob's body was found doubled np in a small and hastily dug hole, only "partially covered, tear the Catholic church on the reserva tion. His throat had been frightlully hacked and cut from ear to ear. It was evident tbat he made a desperate struggle, and that lie hud only been overpowered after a determined resistence. Agent Salmon had no difficulty in locating the murderers, who made no effort to conceal their crime. The Swinomish reservation is now without a "tenanimous man." The Two Ilakotas. Sau Francisco Chronicle. A Democratic contemporary has some editorial commects upon North and South Dukota which deserves severe rep robation. Taking as a text the necessi ties of the inhabitants of certain portions of these new states and the actual starv ing condition ot a large number of peo ple, this journal says: "If the commit tee sent Ire in st. raul to investigate re port the truth the country receives a sickening impression that a great par lisun lruud has been perpetrated by the admission upon a stuffed census and false statistics of two states to be starving rot -ten boroughs, useful odIj for the criminal purpose of politicians. There seem to lis no iuternal resources at all, and the recent shouts over a partisan victory are already declined to a beggar's whine, and usiead ot two proud, resourceful and in- deptnd-int states the doots of the Union seem to have opened to two lazzaroni, who come in asking alms." This is probably the first time in the history of journalism when a newpapur has been so unspeakably prejudiced as to denouDCe starvation as a crime because the victims of short crops and hard times did not vote the Democratic ticket. Never before was the hunger ot a people iranded as a partisan fraud or their ap peal for the means of subsistence charac terized as a beggar's whine. It is puerile to tulk about a stuffed census when the two states cast 120,000 votes, and to as sert tbat the DukoUs have no internal re resources when the contrary is so well known. Had these new states gone Democratic the journal in -question would have been uiong the first to move in the matter of extending aid to our starving fellow countrymen; but, since the people chose to vote the Republican ticket, tbey are lazzirnoi and beggars. It is a new code of ethics, that of the journal referred to, which would teed hungry Democrats but let hungry Republicans starve. Alhany, Nov. 7. The trial of Herbert Rolfe, the second of the Southern Pacific train wreckers, was concluded in the cir cuit court to day. The court held that the confession ot the defendant after his arrest being not made without urgent solicitation was not admissible as evi dence. This left only circumstantial evi dence which was not strong and the jury returned a veidict this evening of not guilty. Much feeling is expressed among rail road men as defendant bad confessed to having assisted in breaking open the switch which caused the disaster. ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION. San Francisco, Nov. 7. The steamer City of Sydney, from Japnn to-day, brings particulars ot the attempted assassination on October 8 of Count Okuma. minister of foreign affairs for Japan. The count was returning from a cabinet meeting and just entering the gate of his official resi dence, when a man named Eurushima Tsuneki, 30 years of age, and who was politically envious of the count, stepped in front of the carriage and threw a bomb at the count. The bomb struck the top ot tne carriage and exploded al the count's feet, inflicting deep wounds on his right leg and slight wounds on his right hand and face. The would-be assassin then drew a short sword and killed himself on the spot by cutting his throat. The connt's leg was amputated above the Knee, but the surgeon states that no tear need be entertained for his life. THERE IS SOME COMFORT. Columucs, O., Nov. 7.

It will require the official count to obtain the exact pluralities of the republican candidates. Campbell's plurality. The Stale Journal, republican, says the republican state committee estimates Campbell's plurality over Foraker for governor at from 10,000 to 12.000. Re turns from nice of the leading counties show that Fora'ier ran 10,365 behind the ticket. IOWA. Des Moises, Nov. 7. The additional returns on the legislative ticket show that the republican majority on a joint ballot will be eight, thus insuring the re-election of Senator Allison. The Register, Republican, says: The re vised figures give Boies, lor governor, 4700 plurality, and .indicate the probable election of all the republican state ticket except the governor. , MASSACHUSETTS. .

The Board of Health can engage in no more laudaOie occupation than the ex amination of our fond supply and the in struction of the public as to those articles it finds to be pure and wholesome, and wnicii, tuerelore, consumers should use There arc quantities of baking powders in the market to use which is certain det. rimcntal to the health of the consumer. They are made from alum, or improperly compounded from other chemicals, so thai tuey leave a strong alkaline residuum u the food. Manv of theae powders, hav ing been prohibited from sale in the east, have bt-ea collected by their manufac turers from the dealers with whom they were left on commission, and shipped to the Pacific coast. The public knows nothing about their quality except what it reads in the newspaper advertisements. In the effort to gain a loot-hold in this market unscrupulous manufacturers of these cheaply mads low grade baking puwaers nave inaulgea in extravagant statements both with reference to their own and others brands, claiming the most improbable endorsements for their goods and denouncing the brauds best known and longest used upon the Pacific Coast. The action of the physicians of the Board of Health, therefore, in giving the puonc reliable, authoritative information as to the brand of baking powder to be used to secure the most economical and wholesome food is most valuable and timely. The chief brands of baking powders sold upon tbePacihc Coast were collected and analyzed by Messrs. Thomas Price & Son, the well-known analytical chemists of San Francisco. Tbey found the strength or leavening gas (measured at iuu degrees V.) ot the brands named as follows: Leavening: Gas. ak. Cubic inches per oz ROYAL, - 191. Giant, - -Golden Gate, - - -Dr: Price's, - -Pioneer, - - - - The general usefulness of a nowuer depends upon the quantity ot leavening gas it gives off. As these pow ders aro retailed at about the same price. the most economical is also apparent The opinion of the Board of Health is as follows: We, the members of the Board of ITealth of the City and County of San Francisco, cordially approve and reccom mend the Roval Baking Powder. It is absolutely pure and healthful, composed of the beet ingredients, of the highest htrengt h and character. In our judgment it is impossible to make a purer or stronger bakiDg powder than the Royal. Jos. II. Davidson, M. D. CnAS. McQuestkn, M. D. Henry M. Kiske, M. I). T. J.

The Atlanta Constitution explains edi torially that Governor Hill's encyclo pedia allusions were interded simply as a good natured thrust at Ruswell Flower, who is with him on his trip and whose speeches were so statistical that tbey were the subject of pleasant banter by the members of the excursion party.

A Republican special from Clayton, New Mexico, says: Unless the snow storm, which has been ragiug for eight days comes to an end soon, next summer will show a country covered with the dead bodies of animals as thickly as was t'-e old Sau a Fe trail in the sixties. The depth of the snow is not now less than 2G inches on a level, and in many places it is drifted seven feet high. When the storm struck tliis section, seven large herds of cattle, num bering from 400 to 2000, were being held near this 'place awaiting shipment to ihe eastein market. The rain of -a week ago Wednesday was followed Thursday morn ing by a blizzard of snow and sleet which sent the herds in a southerly direction. In vain did the half-frozen cowboys try to check the march of the herds, but on they went through the increasing storm, until, finding it utterly iirpossibie to hold the cattle, the boys rode aside and let them pass, and nearly dead, rode their exhausted horses into canyons or partial ly sheltered places, where "tbey-- passed many hours of misery without food or fire. Two cowboys drilteo into a canyon wi ere they found a cedar tree with a rxt's nest in it. They managed to l'ght a lire with this. Daring the second night one of their horses died from cold, and having notlnnir to eat the men cut pieces ot flesh from the dead animal, which tbey warmed and ate without salt. Alter re maining there for sixty hours they started out and after much suffering and hard ship from their weakene f condition, managed to reach a ranch thirty miles away, where tbey were cared for. Five cowboys are known to have been frozen to death, Henry Miller, John Martin, Charles Jolly aud two unknown. Two Mexican sheepherders have been found frozen to death, one near Train peras and nother on a small creek near town.
