Proprietor. HE IS ANSWERED Fords Views on the Extra Session- THINKS A CALAMITY PROBABLE. Fatal Accident A French Opinion The Faxon, Explosion. The following is Mr. Ford's let ter in response to Governor Pen noyer's request for his opinion on the advisabilityof calling an extra session, and also for citation bear ing on the present laws for protec tion of debtors: "Your favor of the 14th instant duly received and contents carefully noted. In answering I have to say that the principles of the proposed stay law are correct, but you will find on examination of our statutes that we already have laws which serve very well forthe protection of debtors, and to attempt to call an extra session of the legislature at the present time might be pro ductive of more harm than good, by creating an alarm among some of the people now holding judg ments, decrees and overdue claims, which . might cause them to com mence immediate proceedings toen force collections; whereas, if things are allowed to remain as they are no attempt will be made to enforce collections, but on the contrary the holders will allow these judments, decrees and overdue claims to drift along until times are better and money easier to obtain. Besides, congress may do something to re lieve the present financial string ency. "It is. certain that debtors can not now obtain money to pay off large demands, a fact well known to creditors, and for this reason but very few suits or actions have been brought during the past three months. Since the June term of the circuit court it is a very notice able fact that not a single mort gage foreclosure auit has been com menced in this (Marion) county. The business men of all classes seem to realize that this is no time for the accummulation of extra costs on present indebtedness, but that every one should make an honest effort to help along in every possible way until the present fin ancial stringency is past, which can only be brought aboutthrough wise legislation on the part of congress. "We already have a homestead law which gives every farmer a home of the value of $1,500, and not exceeding 160, acres iri extent, as exempt from attachment and execution. See 1393 session laws, page 93. "Every householder can also own personal property of the ag gregate value of from $1,200 to $1,500, which is exempt from at tachment and execution. See code, 1 page 353. " "If any creditor should be mean enough to attempt to either attach or levy upon this exempt property to enforce the payment of his claim the owner has it in his power to easily defeat the proceedings with out losing either the possession or use of his property; unless the sheriff should be a mean fellow, in which case he might be deprived of his possession for a short time, but the sheriff would be compelled to answer in damages for such wrong ful conduct, and courts and juries can always be depended upon to do justice and award ample dam ages against the officer, and in favor of the injured householder, in every such case. See laws com mencing on page 258 of code. "Again, if a debtor own property which is not exempt from attach ment and attempt is made to cause it to be sold at a sacrifice in conse quence of the stringency of the pre sent money market, or for any other cause, he can easily and cheaply make a general assignment which will dissolve the attachment and prevent a sacrifice of the pro perty. See laws commencing page 1408 of code. : "In view of the present laws which we have upon the subject I certainly think it would be unwise to attempt to call an extra session of the legislature for the purpose of enacting only the one year stay law, and especially when we consider the fact that it would cost about $25,000 to hold the extra session. But, while extra sessions are not to be generally favored, yet if you could prevail upon the members to agree to meet in extra session and re-enact the mortgage tax law, and repeal the jute mill law, and a few other expensive laws passed by the last legislature, and then go home without any other legislation, I think the people might in this way be greatly benefitted by being re lieved of unnecessary taxation.'' Fatal Accident. Homer Bell, son of Rev. J. B. N. Bell, of Independence, was hunting with a friend in Rosedale addition, three miles south of Salem. It seems that as they were passing through a gate the gun slipped through the slat work that formed the bottom of the cart and was dis charged, giving Bell the entire load in the left breast. A threshing crew was close at hand who con veyed the young man to a neigh boring farm house, where he died at 10 p. m. He was a printer by trade and about 18 years of age. The news of the accident was re ceived with great sorrow at Inde pendence as he was a very popular young man and admired by all who knew him. A French Opinion. The Economist Francais of July 1, contains an article on the silver question. It is pointed out that the average production of silver was but $45,000,000 annually for the whole world from 1853 to 1847; $53,400,000 annualv from 1858 to 1852; $68,8000,000 "from 1638 to 1867, and that gradually in spite of a constant diminution in the commercial price of the metal has risen to a production of $203,600, 000 for 1892. The annual production would doubtless rise to $400,000,000 if me great nations or ine eartn should open their mints to the coinage or purchase of silver, "If the United States should commit the folly of obstinately increasing its stock of silver it would loose in a short time all its gold; it would fall to the rank of a country with a depreciated standard; it will find itself .plunged into an intense crisis." THE FAXON EXPLOSION, Captain Pegram Cannot Account for It. Captain B. R. Pegram, superin tendent of Union Pacific water lines, returned yesterday from the Snake river, says the Oregonian, where he went to investigate the blowing up of the steamer Annie Faxon. The captain can offer no solution whatever of the mystery. The boiler was considered one of the best, and and at the time car ried no more steam than usual, nor did the fireman allow the water to run down as first supposed. Captain Pegram said: "On reaching Wade's bar I found the Faxon with her head in five and stern in nine feet of water; The wreck was complete, every thing being blown , off . except 30 feet of the house over the stern. One piece of the boiler was back of the engine, and the firebox tilted forward. Some of the boiler plates had the rives cut off as clean as though with shears. Eighteen feet of the middle of the boiler could not be found. The house was re duced to splinters. The hull ap parently looks well, but the mid dle of it, found, was blown away. The force of the explosion evident ly was in every direction. " "There is no possibility that the fireman let the water go down, for theiuse in the boiler, which for tunately we found, was not touched, The engineer had less than 110 pounds of steam on at the time, as the boat was coming down stream and there was no necessity for car rying much steam. Just before the explosion the, fireman and en gineer had tried the water and noted the . steam ; pressure and found everything all right. In soector McDermott savs the boiler was one of the best in the country. Last winter, when he inspected it, he cut out a piece of plate and found no evidence of its having wasted a particle. The explosion was one of those unaccountable affairs which scientists even cannot explain. "The cylinders and wheel are in good order and I will send a diver up in a few days to examine the hull, but I 'doubt if we will be able to use it. The Spokane was trans ferred to the route today and the Almota will go on in two weeks." Branding Coyotes. All over the boundless west can be found cattle and horses branded according to the fancy of their owners, but probably in no section of the country outside of Yakima will be seen coyote? with a brand on, and that brand the one of the government of the United States. A favorite pastime of the Yakima Indians is to lariet coyotes and press the red hot brand of "I. D." (Indian department) upon their flanks. Many of these slinking animals, thus marked, are .jfre auently to be seen on the Yakima Indian reservation, and so popu lar has this sport - been with the siwashes that the young are now brought forth bearing this brand. Uncle Sara would have some trou ble rounding up ail the stock mar ked with this brand. Notice. Complaint have been made to me by par tie receiving notice to pay uptheHtanlon Campbell arcounta.

BITTEN BY A DOC He Attacks a Little Girl At Walla Walia. J NOT WORK OP OLD SOLDIERS. A Miniature . Farm The Decision is Reversed- .:' . Early on Thursday morning, says the Walla Walla Statesman, as Bessie Crews the 7-year-old daughter of Mrs, N. E. Crews, liv ing at the head of Alder street, was passing by the bottling workB of Schwartz & Stahl, on Alder street, a large black dog darted from the front door of the works and caught the victim just above the center of the back and near the shoulder. The poor little thing was thrown to the ground beneath the weight of the vicious animal, whose jaws closed on the tender and trembling human flesh. Stand ing in the doorway of the works was Henry Stahl, who had just opened the house. The dog had been left in the building during the night and his action was so sud den that Mr. Stahl could not pre vent it, As quick as possible he caught hold of the cur and endea vored to loosen his hold. At this moment Dr. Y. C. Blalock passed in a buggy, and attracted by the girl's cries, jumped to the ground and aided Mr. Stahl in pulling the dog away. ; The wounded child was taken to her home where her injuries were attended to. Not the Work ofthe old Soldier. . The old soldier who had the courage to stand at the front dur ing the war, is not the one who is afraid now that his pension will be either reduced or discontinued. The chaps who are doing the kick ing about a revision of the pension rolls are the fellows who ; left the real soldiers to do the fighting, while they sought safety in the hospitals or" at home. These, along with republicans politicians and pension agents, are the oppon ents of a pension system that will discriminate between the deserv ing soldier and the bounty jumper, the Bkulker and the pension shark. No real old soldier has, nor need have, any fear of being left in the struggle for an honest and honor able pension , roll. ; It - is to give each as he deserves, and, the full measure of his deserts, that the ef fort is being , made ' tp, revise the list of pensioners. r Washington's Miniature Farm at the ' ' ". Exposition. . , The World's Fair correspondent of an Eastern exchange writes: This has been called the Model City, and such, indeed, it is. It is also a city of models. To my mind there is nothing in the Fair more interesting than the models of great buildings, of famous engineering works, of farms and cities which are displayed in various parts of the grounds. Hundreds of these miniatures are to be found here. The gem of them all, I think, is a model of a farm shown in the Washington State building. It is a graphic representation of farming as it is done in the great West. A space probably sixty feet square is covered by it, and you may be sure great crowds of delighted visitors are always found here. The farm ia more perfect than a picture. There are a dozen fields, the grain and grass growing in them. In the pastures the cattle and colts are feeding, in the fields men and machinery are harvesting the ripe crops. The soil is real soil, the grain is real grain, the fences are real fences, the machines actual machines, but all on a miniature scale. A perfect little self-binder that you could hold in your two hands is cutting the whf at. A boy follows to stack up the bundles in to shocks. In the adjoining field a Western header is at work, cutting off the tops of luxuriant oats. Wagons carry the rich products to a steam threshing machine in operation at the edge of the field. Not far away one man is "plowing with a riding plow, and near him another man is following the furrow behind a walk ing plow of the old style. All the details of this farm scene are ad mirably executed. Along the coun try road drives a farmer in his wagon, his sturdy horses kicking the dust, and his own eyes, farmer like, critically inspecting the fields of his neighbor. Where the fences sub-divide the farm into fields, there are fringes of heavy grass and rank weeds, with a few flowers showing their bright hues in the mass, just as the fence-corners are in all Christendom. A boy with a pony ia carrying cold water from the spring to refresh the workers in the harvest field. There is even a snake it green harmless, pretty thing in the grass. One imagines he can hear the click-click of the mowing machine in the clover, or the hum of the steam thresher at the edge of the oats field. Surely the water-boy is whistling or sing ing. Of. course the farm house, barn and the out-buildings are there too. They are like life. The dog in the dooryard is wagging his bushy tail and smiling with his red mouth at the visitors to the World's Fair. The milch cow stands in the shade of a blooming peach tree, chewing her cud. Water runs from the spigot of the pump that is operated by a miniature windmill. The stream that is fed by the springs and runs tbrough the barnyard, is a stream of natural water. This is a model which brings to four visitors out of five, visions of the old farm on which their youthful days were passed- visions of toil and hap piness, of communion with nature and lessons of industry, economy and honor well learned. It is a miniature worth seeing, for it not only pleases the eye and informs the mind, but stirs the imagination. Everywhere in this world I take off my hat to the larmer. To the gen ius who designed and contructed this most perfect of models, I offer my congratulations. DECISION REVERSED. Judge Bellinger and the Case of De porting the Chinese. Judge Bellinger has rendered a brief but important decision in the United States district court. He has reversed the order of United States commissioner Deady deport ing the five Chinese now in. the county jail, but has not thereby al lowed them to "land" or remain in the United States. They will now be given an opportunity to leave the country. Not availing themselves of that, they will be open to arrest and imprisonment. Now .they are prisoners against their will. Yes terday . the United States court room rang with the eloquence of Gilbert J. McGinn and United States District Attorney Murphy. The former was very earnest in his argument and almost invoked the aid of the goddess of justice to come to earth and spread her fiinions in : protection over the ong-quened Mongolians. He ci ted points in history and law ga lore to sustain his point that these men should go free. Mr. Murphy opposed this in forcible terms. The decision was a sort of com promise. They are neither to be deported nor discharged, but sim ply given an opportunity to get out of the land. As Mr. Murphy expresped it they are now "between the devil and the deep blue sea." Judge Bellinger held that this con clusion was the only just one, be cause, not being actually in the United States, only a ship enter ing art American port, the China men could hardly , be deported from this country; and, on the other hand, there was not sufficient evidence to permit their landing; hence the only alternative was too have them leave the United States. Portland Telegram. 4 ) A Tall Man's Gallantry. ; One bitter cold day last winter, says the Minneapolis Tribune, a large sized section of wind of the eager and nipping Winnipeg var iety swooped down on Hennepin Avenue in search of such back numbered and stray whiskers as it might devour, while the conductors on the street cars rubbed their ears in fond anticipation of the warm stoves and piping hot soup which awaited them after the next relief, On the corner of Fourth and Hen nepin there stood a tall man with brown chin whiskers, and consider ing the shiny Bilk hat and lack of ear muffs he didn't look any too comfortable as the chilly five de gress below zero blast caressed the northern slope of his manly profile. Alongside of this tall and hand some man, stood a shop girl who drew her scanty wraps a little tighter and shivered from the cold, while both were evidently awaiting with impatience the coming of their car, Pretty soon a Lyndale Aven uo car hove in sight, and the tall man motioned the motoneer to stop. As the car came to a stand still the shop girl advanced, it being her car, too, and as though it were the middle of summer and the finest lady in the land, the tall gentleman touched his hat and with gallantry that would have done honor to Sir Walter Raleieh. he assisted the girl to the inside of the crowded car and afterwards took a position on the platform himself. The tall gentleman was Thomas Lowry, prepident of the road. All of which goes to show that while the sleighing is good and with horses galore, the every day street car of the people is good enough for him, to eay nothing of the nicw lesson in gallantry. Hewitt uses nothing but pure, fresh drugs in filling prescriptions. Take your prescriptions to him. ANOTHER BOY SHOT While Foiling with a Re volver. A DEGENERATE PREACHER. Indiads in 78 A- New Feathered Pet The Portland Banks. Thursday afternoon while Leon ard, the 13-year-old son of the Widow Naught, who resides on the lower Milton road, was fooling with a 22-caliber revolver the gun was accidently discharged, the ball entering his left leg. just above the knee. Dr. Ely was summoned and probed the wound, but failed to find the bullet. The wound, while not serious, will doubtless serve to teach the young gentle man that guns are dangerous things to monkey with. A Degenerate Preacher. Rev. R. J. E. Campbell, for twelve years Baptist minister at Roseburg and later a United Breth- ern preacher, has got a little tough notoriety of late by breaking up the family of an old man in Salem, says the Eugene Guard. The old man formerly lived in Roseburg where he got acquainted with the minister. The former has a mar ried son who is sick with consump tion.- After the minister was ex pelled from the U. B. church, he made his home with the old man living off of him and frequently borrowing uoney. He also paid much attention to the sick man's wife, sitting up with her until 2 or 3 o'clock. The minister prevailed on the wife to borrow money for him from the old man, who finally compelled him to leave. Still the wife importuned for money, which was refused, as the old man did not have more than enough to help him through with his son. A day or two ago all his money was 6tolen from his pocket book which he kept under his pillow, and ho is com pelled to ask public charity. Mr. Campbell was advised to leave town to avoid punishment at the hands ofthe citizens. ; Fight With Indians In 1878. Mr. J. W. GreenwelhofDayville, Grant county is in the city. He was enroute to Portland, but Mr. Schutz ascertained he was in town and induced him to remain and give testimony regarding his encounter with Indians and loss of stock during the Rannack" war of 1878. It was quite thrilling to listen to a description of the fight by these two participants. Messrs. Schutz, Greenwell and party were sourron ded by the redskins, the bullets flew as thick as hail around the half dozen men. Schutz was shot through the breast, had his hat knocked off by a bullet and his sleeve button torn from his shirt. Another man by the name of Cum mings was shot through the thigh, they managed to keep on their horses until they arrived at Can City, although Schutz says his boots were full of blood when he dismounted. Times-Mounta ineer. A New Feathered Pet. A new cage bird, the nonpareil, is fast securing a position among household pets that bids fair to prove a successful rivalship of the canary as a song bird, and in ele gance of appearance, plumage and graceful motions, he is by nature far superior. He is a native of the South, being found in Florida, Louisiana, Texas and Mexico, but until recently has been known as a cage bird to a very few Northern homes. Thanks to the enterprise of a prominent bird fancier and dealer, Mr. Herman Roesch, 215 Market Street, St. Louis, Mo., the nonpareil is attainable by all who desire a loveable cage bird, one that will not only delight the ear, but the eye as well. The nonpareil is the most beauti ful of American finches. He is often called the "painted bunting," on account of his brilliant plumage. A well-known lover of birds, Mary Helen Boody, of Laconia, N. H., thus described her nonpareil that, one of the first, introduced into the Eastern States, has, like its fel lows, proved perfectly hardy in the Northern climate. She says: ''I have a beautiful specimen of the nonpareil, which at the present moment has a violet head and neck; a red circle around the eyes, the iris brown, the beak and feet brown, the upper part of the body yellowish green, the lower part of the back, the throat, chest, and the whole under part of the body as well as the tail coverts, of a bright red; the wing covens are green, the quills reddish brown, tinged with green; the tail a reddish brown. He is about the size of a canary and requ.'res the same treatment. I feed him clear canary seed with which ia mixed a little millet seed. He is very fond of flies. If I offer him one he darts across the cage to seira it,, tflkinir it from to v hand. and when allowed to fly about the room will catch flies for himself, lie is a delightfully social bird, and is very inquisitive, hopping about on my writing-desk examin ing everything he sees. When tired after his rapid flight across the room, he will perch himself be fore a mirror and warble away to his image reflected in the glass. Ha He is fond of bathing, and would bathe in a pitcher or basin if I'd let him. But these are kept out of his reach ; when he is outside hia cage. The song oi me nonpareu is soft and agreeable and free from the shrill notes of the canary. He sings ten months in the year, ceas ing only for the remaining two months, during the moulting per iod. I never had a ' bird that is easier kept. They do not obtain Vioi full nliimnorA nnt.il two vears old, their color the first year being a plain green, and they breed as readily as canaries, and their, cost is about the same."
