HE IS DECLARED A fllRETIC
A Stabbirg Affray on Batter Creek
Exportation of Gold, Etc, 'y-f
At the Thursday afternoon ses
sion, Dr. Craig convenedU'the as
sembly aa a court to bear the jre
port of the committee appointed to
prepare- an explanatory . minute . of
the Bnges case. 5 The Rev. Mr.
Hoyt, chairman, called upon Dr.
Baker, of the gue-committee sent
to interview Professor Brigg to re
port the result of the interview,.
Dr. Baker, said Professor Briegs
had slated it 'was his irrevocable
determination to abide by the de
clarations' made in his address be
fore the assembly in his defense,
and to continue to teach the doc
trines there avowed, . At the re
quest .of Dr. .Baker, ; Professor
Bnggs gave mm an . autograph
letter making such statement,
whereupon Dr. Baker said r the
committee took the action which
Mr. Hoyt would now -report to the
assembly. The. report, after re
citing the proceedings in the case,
proceeds: -, , .
"This judicatory finds that said
final judgment of the presbytery: of
New York is erroneous, and is here
by reversed. And this general as
sembly finds that the appelh'e.
Charles A. Briggs, uttered, taught
and pronagated views, doctrines
and teachings contrary to 'the es-.j
sential doctrines of the Holy Scrip
tures and standards of the Preshy
terian church, and in violationjof
the ordination-vows of said appeljte,
which" said erroneous views and
doctrines strike at the vitals of re
ligion and have been industri
ously spread. The committee does
hereby recommend the suspension
of Charles A. Briggs, said appellee
from the office, of minister inV th
Presbyterian church in the United
States of America" until such Mini
as he shall give satisfactory evi
dence of repentance, to the general
assembly, of the violation -? by :hiiQ
of said ordination vows . as herein
and heretofore found." : : i
The report of, the committee' was
adopted and a vore - of thanks
given the members of the committee
for their . services. The motion
evokod afew hisses. ; ,.'
In New York Dr. Briggs said the
decision j of the general assembly
would make no change in his re
lations with Union Seminary. The
professor and some of his friends
intimated further that the action
in Washington did not end the
matter. " :
Stabbing Affray. ' '
The Tribune of Tuesday says:
A- J. Cummings of Butter Creek, in
an altercation withone Joe Mc
Laughlin last Sunday severely
wounded the latter with a pocket
knife, stabbing him in the abdo
man, groin and back. During the
difficulty between Cummings and
McLaughlin, Walker Allen, the
genial clerk of the Boston Store,
who was on Butter Creek looking
after his stock, sought to separate
the parties and received an acci
dental wound in the hip some three
inches long from Cunsmings' Knife.
It is thought that McLaughlin's
wounds are fatal. Cumihingcame
to town this morning along with
Allen and was taken into custody
by the sheriff on a telegram from
the sheriff of Morrow County. It
U said that McLaughlin ;is a much
larger man than Cummings and he
commenced the alteration by strik
ing Cummings iu the face with his
fist. Walker Allen is confined to
his room. -.- His wound though pain
ful and severe is not dangerous.
Exportation of Gold.
' Since Jan. 1st $60,000,000 in
gold have exported to Europe, and
the export movement, instead of
abating, seems to have received a
fresh impetus. Most of this gold
was taken from the United States
treasury, and practically all that
is now exported comes from the
same source. In tbat time the
treasury department has sustained
a net loss of $25,354,243, the net
total gold in the treasury Jan. 1st,
1893 having been - $121,206,662,
while on Monday it was only $95,
912,419. The gold engaged for
shipment Tuesday and Wednesday
would leave it about $93,000,000,
the lowest figure reached since the
resumption of specie payments.
In addition, there are reports that
more will go out next Saturday,
sufficient, it is said to reduce the
gold holdings to $90,000,000. Des
pite these - heavy shipments, the
treasury officials express the great
est confidence in the ability of the
treasury to restore the gold bal-

It has been the ruling on every
reservation, and ths same applies
to the Umatilla, that the right of
suffrage is granted the Indians bo
soon as' their allotments . have
heen approved and certificates
issued to those entitled to hold
land. , - -.'
. The report of the allotment
commissioners for this reservation
has been approved, but the certifi
cates h a ve not been issued, the
wait being due to the fact .that
certain evidence is desired by the
department. The Indians t will
undoubtedly become citizens and
voters in time. to cast their bal
lots at the June election next
year; J ' ; . .., '; . :J. y-

The Animal Identified.
Pendleton Tribune.
The animal which was Killed
near Weston and which was se
cured and taxidermized by Joe
V. Talltnan, after having under
gone a rigid examination . by our
citizens in i their endeavors to
specify its species, has, without
doubt, been proven to be a glutton,
or wolverine.
. The glutton is a carnivorous
animal, belonging to the weasel
family, but presenting a striking
resemblance to the bear. In form
it is not unliice the European
badger. Its head is broad, eyes
small, and it is said its vision is
defective. Its fur consists of an
undergrowth of short wooly hair,
mixed with long straight hairs, to
the abundance of which it owes
its shaggy appearance. . The color
of its fur is daik brown with a
broad band a. of a light color
stretching from the
shoulders
along each side of the body, ; the
two meeting at the tail. -It is said
that this .inimal is not more glut
tonous than -are the- majority of
carnivorous animals, and why it
should bear ' the name is not
known. One of its great propen
sities is to steal and hide things,
not merely for food, but articles
which cannot possibly have any
interest for it except that of curiosity..-

W Modern Baseball.
Monntoutb Record.
The match game of base ball
participated in last Saturday by
the girls against the boys of the
public school, was an exceedingly
interesting one. The game , was
played scientifically and accord
ing to the latest rules throughout.
Both sides were neatly uniformed,
the girls in white waists and black
skirts to their knees, the boys in
white and blue. More than two
hundred from the town and
Normal witnessed the game. The
way in which the battery on the
girls' side handled the ball was un
usual, hardly a ball passing the
catcher, Maud Hargrove, and the
curved pitcher , Miss McGrew,
caught several liners hot from the
bat and made double plays with
them. The boys worked ' hard
and did all in their power to beat
the game but all in vain. The
cheers from the crowd in behalf
of the feminine team, "rattled"
the boys who were ahead until
the; last two innings, and the
girls succeeded in scoring one
more run than the boys. , The
score stood 35 to 36 in favor of the
fair sex. The boys were beaten
at their own game.

Harry Cupper, the oldest son of
H. A. Cupper, of. Monument, was

brother, Fred Cupper. The facts
concerning the sad affair, says the
Long CreeK Eagle, are ; as follows:
Wednesday afternoon the two broth

started out to kill a cougar that has
been committing depredations in
the vicinity. The two boys separ

it was out of its lair on that after
noon, and wandered about through
the undergrowth, neither having
any knowledgeof the others where
abouts, t red, the younger of the
two brothers, imagined he saw a
wildcat or couar wandering slow
ly on its accustomed trail through
the brush or thicket. With direct
aim, he fired, but instead of cap
turing the much sought for sheep
camp offender, his brother, Harry,
fell a victim, dving almost instant

Important Elections.
.The only two elections of general
importance this year will occur in
Ohio and Iowa. Ohio eleots a
Governor, important state officers
and a legislature. Iowa the same,

proposes to have himself "indicted"
for the office by the state democratic
convention, and to make a thorough
canvass of the state to secure a leg
islature favorable to his aspiration.
The fieht will be hieblv interesting
I Wilson deserves to succeed him
elf. He is a man of ability, fairly
popular with the, republicans,, amd
both he and Cfov. Uoies have the
trestiire of former success in their

parties may be relied on K

both, the election will be of

; , The Proposed Income Tax,
' The movement for an inr ,
tax is growing apace, says the r
land Telegram. President CI';
land is known to be in favor ot i
and the leading journals of ihfj
land are freely discussing the feat-4
urts and advantages. It is an -
nounced that the president's plan
is to levy on all incomes of over
$5000, while he may vet conclud
to favof all above $2000 and make
the rate much less. All its pos
sibilities and different cenocpUona
are being carefully confide md by
by him and other prominentstates
men. It is now expected that a
measure of this kind will pass the
next congress because tha majority
in both houses are known to favor
the principle. Its chief tendency
is to make those who are best able
to pay their proportion for the sup
port of the government, and to
provide for a reduction of taxation
which comes heavily on the wage
earner and day laborer.
