While the country ia beiog agitated
on the money question," and there ia
. Borne discussion of the tariff, it is in
teresting to the student to cote the
facta of extra sessions of congress as
they have occurred ia our history. By
so doing one may learn the emergen
cies that have preceded them, and the
beneficial results that have followed.
Eleven extra sessions have - been
held, the first 'being called by Presi
dent John Adams and the last by
' President Hayes. The latter called
two auch -sessions, both to make the
necessary preparations for some of the
- great branches of government Presi
dent Pierce had occasion - to call a
apeoial - session for a similar reason.
. The first in the series waa occasioned
- by the break in our diplomatic rela
tions with France under the directory,
and second by our purchase of Louis
iana from France under Napileon
The most" important of all was the
one called thirty two ' years ago by
President Linloln, for war legislation.
' That session began July 4, 1861, and
- closed the sixth of. the succeeding
Only one extra session was ever oc
casioned by hard times, and that waa
convened by President', "Van Buren
September 4, 1837. Specie payment
had been suspended by the banka of
the country in May. The.Whiga were
anxious to have the national banks re
chartered, which Van Buren opposed,
advocating the sub treasury system
substantially as it now obtains. The
fight was a bitter one.1 The Whig!
never ceased to put into their national
platform a strong, anti-sub-treasury
plank, but by : the time the Republi
cans came into power that old issue
had no vitality. Nor w'as there any
- demand for a return to the national
bank system. ' The present national
bank system., baa nothing in common
with the old onei.'whicli perished be
neath the iron heel of Andrew Jack
son. - -. -: . " .
In 1840. as in 1892, the tariff waa
the main issue, only protection instead
of free trade won. William H. Har
rison did in March, 1841, precisely
what Grover Cleveland should have
done in March, 1893 lost no time in
calling an extra session of congress.
In both cases the people had by their
suffrages decreed a change in the tariff
policy of the ' government, and the
business interests of the country de
manded the earliest practicable settle
ment of the question of what changes
in duties were to be made. ' General
Harrison was a protectionist, and con
gresa was in sympathy with him, as in
the present case the president and con
gress are both for a tariff for revenue
only. The time set for the meeting
was May 31, which was as early as the
senators and representatives of some
states could hear of the call and respond
to it Practically not an hour was lost,
and the session began at- the - earliest
practicable moment.' Unfortunately
the president died in the mean while.
When congress did meet it was with
no thought that Tyler would repudiate
the platform on which he was elected,
nor did his message to the newly con
vened congress outline any deviation
from the party programme. On the
contrary, he advocated a protective
tariff, but when it passed he vetoed it,
to tne utter consternation and un
speakable indignation of his party. It
was as if Mr. Cleveland should die be
fore August 7th and Adlai Stevenson
should send in a message in favor of
the repeal of the Sherman and Mo
Kinley acts and then when repeal bills
were passed should veto them; ' It is
not possible for the American people
of to-day to realize, the intense parti
' san bitterness aroused by Tyler's
action. '.
; It is not fair to pass Judgment on
"Mr. Lotan until it is known what evi
dence of guilt there is against bim.
. He waa summarily removed from his
position, and it may be necessary to
bolster up this act on the part of the
administration. His trial will take
place soon, and it would be well for
the public not to condemn him until
he has been proved guilty.
BEY. W. H. WIL80H.
The following are tbe remarks, in part,
of Rev. W. C. Curtis, in bis funeral aermon
over the remains of Be v. W. H. Wilson:
Mr. Wilson waa tbe son of William and
Mary (Wallace) Wilson, of Clinton, Alle
ghany county P. One who knew bia
father and mother says of them both that
tbey were "remarkable for intelligence and
Christian character." I can well believe it,
for inch men do not often spring directly
from onr common dust tbey are generally
eyolved from an intelligent and noble an
cestry. He was born on the 29ch of Janu
ary, 1823. I can learn nothing of hie boy
hood, and not much of bia youth, bnt a few
simple words in characterization of him,
taken from an old college, class record,
brings bim very Vividly before me, and
makes ' me . quite sure that I have not
guessed wrongly in some important respeota.
The reoord describes him aa a toll, slim
young man of fair complexion, whose emo
tions betrayed themselves in tbe flush that
so quickly overspread his face. Gentle
manly in manner, honorable and Christian
n bia spirit, tender hearted, sensitive and
modest, and possessing the confidence" and
esteem of all.' I might atop just there and
say that in all our knowledge and acquaint
ance be waa only auch an. one fuller grown,
lie was at that time a member of the Asso
ciate church, aa I understand it, a branch
of the Scotch Seeedera (Presbyterians) ' .
He entered Jefferson college. Canonsbury,
Pa., in tbe year 1843, graduating four years
later. . In college he ranked high aa scholar,
and earned for himself an enviable reputa
tion aa a debater. --After, graduation he
pursued his theological . studies at Canona
burg. He was licensed to preach by the
Presbytery of Cbartiers Oct 29th, 1850, and
waa ordained by the Presbytery of Miami
Angust, 1862. Jo 1S69 neaooepted the pasto
rate of tbe first church of Washington Ia..
where he remained, ten years: While hold
ing tfahr pastorate he was alaO" for five years
a professor' in anathema tica and f the na
tural sciences in Washington, college, bis
ability and success aa a teacher, abundantly
justifying the appointments. In 1862
sharing (and doubtless helping to bia utmost
endeavor) the impulse of patriotism and de
sire for the preservation of the nations' in
tegrity, which possessed members of his
congregation and community, he answered
tbe call of his i ountry and went with- them
aa chaplain of tbe Seventeenth Iowa volun
teers. Members of the Grand Army of the.
Bepubko and all who have toaooed in any way
thirpart of his experience or eonyio
tiona, kqow well that bis soul waa linked
with tbe maintenance of the principles at
stake in that struggle, though. I doobt not,
the strugit e ended, be was as desirou; aa
any one that the reign of chanty and mu
tual helpfulneas should prevail throughout
the entire laud. ,'-
. .Aa to his ministry, I have it from his
record ia ether place;- though if this were
wanting, it could be fully verified from tbe
ten months of his ocvnpancy of our own
church in The Dalles.-' Not a few of those
whose opinion I value m such matters, hav
iog frequently declared bow they delightei
in bia ministry and were profited by it. H
vecoid is that of "an earnest, faithful and
devoted minister of tbe gospel" of "one
who carries tbe spirit of gospel in his life,
and won and retained- the confidence and
love of tbose about bim." ' He was a man
of "fine literary tastes and studious habits,
and if ever he fell short it waa not because
he did not aim high and do bis utmost to
reach tbe marc. One great characteristic
of his preaching was his persoasiveaes
Another equally prominent, " bis faculty
of presenting gospel truth without denomi
national bias or credal empha is, his presen
tation being auch that many of diveise bt
lief claimed him for their own, beiog so
sure that his . view waa according to the
troth. He waa in high esteem for genuine
ability in every Presbytery with which be
waa ever associated, and only his exceeding
modesty, which really amounted to timid
ity, kept bim from the prominence of which
bis abilities gave promise. He gathere
about bim a large, stroog church there iu
Iowa, many members of which, as of tbe
community, cherish to this day bis memor
with great sadness. Had it not been that
the paralysis fell upon him just as it did, be
would have gone back to them this rummer
and proved how much they could
do - to make him ' know . bow good
is the o'.d love." But the old church.
dear as it was. could not keep him. Some
how he got it into his heart that he ought
to arise and go unto the great land bevond
the mountain, whose shores are washed by
the mighty Pacific a land which God would
ahow him and give to him, in part at least,
for a possession. I speak of the church and
the cause he loved. At length in 1S69 he
secured through the board of misaioua an
appointment which removed him to Salinas
City, Calif., where he remained ten years.
It was a great deal like many of life's hopea
and the lands of promise which are seem
ingly opened unto us. Much there is in
theui so mush that we would not think of
going back nor of charging Gud with failing
us. And yet there's always something nn
fulfilled, something that makes us think
tbat unless God bag some fuller, better
thiog for us io those who shall come after
us, taking our work were we leave it and
carrying it to some high tullhlment, tbe
promise has failed us. But tbe word of our
God "upon which He baa caused us to
hope" does not fail us. God is too great a
God not to love and use ns all all who try
to serve Him and saye our work from ur
ter failure, nay rather to make it a part of
His grand success which ia sure to come.
There must bave been muob grand suc
cess and much enjoyment too io tbeae years
I'm sore of tbat, though the outcome waa
something like a bitterness. (I apeak
largely from impressions. ) It all came from
a man'a being in a place and among a peo
ple not yet prepared for bim. Tbat ia the
oondition of propkeiure in all agea and
among all people. It only seems strange
when it touches us. He waa not soured by
bis experience of man'a inhumanity to man
of the Christian's sometime onkindness to
bis brother a thing of narrowness and big
otry and selfishness. He was not sonied by
it, nor in anywise turned from Christianity
nor tbe church; but grew even to the end in
breadth and charity and sweetneaa aa we
all do testify. Aa a parishoner aad fellow
worker, where he waa not a pastor, h waa
highly esteemed and greatly beloved for bis
warm aympatby and steadfast Christian
helpfulness. .'
Mr. Wilson came to Waitsbnrg, Wash

Mr. Jesse W. Blakeney, of this city, re
ceived a letter yesterday from his -wife's
ancle, Mr. M. Spencer, residing near Lyle.
Wash., containing the intelligence that Mr.
James Gunnings, his son in-law, bad .b en
robbed while coming borne from the boat
landing of $270 by two armed men. Mr.
Gunnings and wife reside near Vancouver,
Wash., bnt about a month ago came on a
visit to Mrs. Gunnings' parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Spencer, and had been stopping on the
farm since. . A few days ago Mr. Gunnings
made trip to hia home at Vancouver on
business, and had in his possession the
amount named. The boat waa late
that night, and in going from the whatf to
Mr. Spencer's house, a distance of about
three milea.he waa attacked by two men who
relieved bim of the money; No information
is given in tbe letter of the appearance of
the robbers, but simply the bare tact of tbe
theft. - The denominations were, two one
hundred dollar greenbacks, one fifty dollar
greenback, one twenty dollar greenback ai d
two ' dollars in silver.' 'Whoever took tbe
money must have possessed considerable
knowledge of Mr. Gunnings' affairs, and
also have been acquainted with the locality.

given, a lookout could, be kept for them;
but,' aa it is, it would puzzle tne keen obser

A Boy Drowned.
Yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock,
while some boys were bathing in Snipes'
lake near Rowena, one of them was
drowned. It seems tbat after swimming
around for awh le, tbe unfortunate lad and
ooe of the Snipes' boy attempted to ride
two horses across - the slough, and when
near the -center he fell from the animal in
some way and before assistance could reaoh
him- sank to the bottom.',,. Young Snipes
aaya tbe first he knew that hia companion
waa in the water was when he beard him
struggling, and - before he could reach him
be had sunk below the surface. The boy
waa a. Uerman, and. he bad been, working
for Mr. Hank Snipes tor two or three ire ks
past. He came there with hia father, and
the old-gentleman went to Walla Walla.
He waa aged about sixteen years; but hia
name- oaald not be ascertained. - At the
plaoe where - the aouideut ? occurred I the
slough is? about forty feet aoroes, and
bury dep'viirithe center- The trod y waa
not recovered last nigbt, and this morning
Mr Geo. B. Snipes came to tbe eity and
procured grappling hooks and dragged the
lake. .,. ,
Encounter With Ed. Henderson.
- Teslerday Deputy-Sheriff Jackson " ac
companied a deputy from Douglas
county, Wash. t. M. Corbley to Tygh
valley o arrest Ed- Henderson. Tbe dep
uty from Washington bad a warrant of
arrest for Henderson from Douglas county
for larceny, and the ..requisite papers to
briDg-hlm- back ; with ;him.'; They met
hiialn front of the store at -Tygh, and
Mr. Jaclson called to him lo atop. Hen
derson pulled up his horse and told Jack.
son that he would go with him Jackson
then took the bridle of the horse, and
asked tbe deputy toreid the warrant. He
stepped out: of the buggy -with his war
rant in hand, began reading and laid his
revolver on the seat. At this juncture
Mr. Jackson requested Henderson to get
off, when he leaned forward as though to
take his feet out of tbe stirrups but in
making the m vement drew a pistol out
ot his shirt bosom, levelled it on the dnp
uty and told him in not very elegant lan
guage to let go the bridle, fie let go toe
horse and at tbe same time reached be
hind into tbe pocket of his pantaloon 3 to
procure hia gun. The weapon was caught
in the lining of the pocket, and before he
could get it out, Henderson's pistol was
discharged, the ball striking the ground
by the side of Jackson. This was caused
by the horse making a quick movement
when the hand Ioos-jued ihe hold near the
mouth. Tbe pistol was pointed directly
in Jackson's lace, and tbe nervous motion
of tbe animal is the only thing that
caused tbe gun to deviate from its aim
As soon as possible both deputies tired at
Henderson, who In the meantime had put
spurs to his animal and was riding rap
idly away. Cojbley fired tnree shots.
one of them striking the horse and caus
ing bim to double up as though about to
fall, when Henderson jerked bim op with
the bridle and renewed his spurring
I eputy Jackson managed to fire two shots
at Henderson, and he retaliated by firing
three times at the deputy sheriffs. Neither
of these eight balls look effect, except the
one that bit the horse. Henderson was
well mouotel, and it waa impossible to
overtake him in the buggy, so pursuit
was not continued.
The catile were sold to Mr. Harry
Moran, who traced them up until be as
certained they were stolen. A warrant
was sworn out and placed in the hards of
Special i)eputy v.'olbrey, who immediately
rode to the railway station and came to
The Dalles. He was followed by Mr.
Moran and Deputy Sheriff Barnes, who
arrived in town yesterday. It is presumed
that Henderson received warning from
some friends up there, and that he was
placed on bis guard. We learn tbat the
evidence against bim ia very convincing,
and he will undoubtedly be convicted.
There is no question that he will be even
tually captured.although he is thoroughly
acquainted with every canyon in Wasco
county and may elude pursuit for some
time. . .
Coroner's Inquest,
A jury was summoned this morning over
the remains of the boy who waa- drowned in
Snipes' lake last Sunday afternoon. After
tbe jury waa empanelled several witnesses
were sworn and testified. It appears that
the boys had been accustomed to swim the
horse8 over this slough in hunting the cows,
and last Sunday Johan W etzki and -lames
Mo own had been in bathing, fntting
their shirts on they got on the backs of two
horses, and while in swimming water the
W etzki boy slipped off and was drowned.
McCown tried to grab him while he waa tn
the water, but could not reach h m, and his
horse made for tbe shore. V hat- caused
the boy to slip from the horse waa reaching
for hia shirt, which fell in the water,. This
was near the farm of Mr. Henry Snipes, and
happened about 5 o'clock Efforta were
made by Mr. Henry Snipes and by, his
nephew to save the boy,' but these were
futile of results.
The following is the verdict of the jury:
We the jury empanelled by the coroner
of Wasco county to inquire into the cause
of the death of .iohan Christian etzki find
that hia death waa caused by drowning in
Snipes' lake wh le trying to swim a horse
across said lake, and that it waa purely ac
cidental, iom victor,

Fire at Warm Springs.
Ochoco Bevicw: Ou Monday, the 10th
inst., at about noon, tbe residence of the
Indian agent, J. C. Luckey, was totally
destroyed by fire, together with a large
portion of the contents. The fire, seems
to have originated in a terra cotta flue
connected with the kitchen stove. VVhen
discovered it was too late to make a suc
cessful fight against- the flames. Those
present worked heroically and with self
forgetfulness worthy of all praise to save
both government and personal property.
Nearly all the furniture, bedding and
clothing were taken out, hut a great num
bei ot valuable books, a quaniity of
dishes, gla.s and silver ware aid all the
kitchen furniture aod utensils were lost.
A trunk and contents belonging to Miss
Ka'e Lister could not be reached and was
destroyed. : At one time the office seemed
to be doomed and tbe records were has
tily r. moved to a place of safety, but
prompt and energetic measures averted
the danger. There was no insurance.
The loss has not yet been estimated.
A Queer Bank.
sVntone Joseph was recently murdered in
S uthern Oregon for his money, which waa
not found. The Grants Pass Courier tells
of bis bans: as follows: A joist had been
very neatly mortised and into the cavity
the sum of f 1700 had been neatly placed,
each $100 rolled in paper and tied with a
string. These packages were then packed
around with cotton rags and the lid of the
mortise neatly slid into pUce and he'd in'
position by a small screw, which was not
visible to the casual glance. There waa a
sum of $250 found in a purse -thrown
amongst some corn oobs in another part of
the building, and it is thought Aotone had
placed this there to be more easily foucd by
robbers, who would then desiat in their
search. If tbe location ot the coin bad not
been previously known by his nephew it
would perhaps bave remained hidden for
many years yet. '''",

The traveling public are now fully alive
to the fact that tbe Chioago, Union Pacifle
It Northwestern Line offers tbe very best
accommodations to the public from and to
Chicago,, Omaha and intermediate points,
not only during the world's fair, but all the
year arcand.
This i what the Astoria Herald says
about sa'mon in that locality: It is ex
pected that tbcro . will be a large run of
salmon commencing to morrow and ran
nervuien are making preparations for it.
Unless there i a good run, the salmon
pack on the rive will not exceed 200 000
cases, beiug the smallest pack on the
river. People are beginning t- realize
that they are depending uion the salmon
pack and when it is a failure, dull times
is ihe result. Should the pack prove n
failure, and Itemingtun fail to secure
fundi for a railioHil, a large nuijority of
Asiorians will be forced lo a sal' salmon
and potato diet this winter The busi
ness outlook ai pres ut is not very fla'.ter
'ng. A giaid run of salmon between noiv
and tbe close of the season, will revive
business, and a d greatly lo Astoria's
iuture prosperity."
Two boys, the sons of Air. J. tT
Mrs. Mary A. Thornton, of Cornwall,
Idaho, but formerly of ayville, Gilliam
county, were drowned on the 4th of -luly in
the Potlatch river. We learn from the
Fossil Journal that Lee ami Charlie Thorn
ton were fishing on tbat day, hen the for
mer fell in the river and, iu his efforts to
rescue him, Charlie wan also engulfed in
the stream. A boy of 13 years witnessed
the accident, but was powerless to render
any assistance. The bodies were recovered
by Indians, who dived and brought them
to the surface. In the vicinity of Kossilthe
I borntons are well known and highly e
speoted, and the family has the sympathy
of the community in their sad bereavement.
