THRASHED BY BONI
Another French Duel Is Be
EDITOR DE RODAYS THE VICTIM
Castellane, Taking? Offense at an
Article in Figaro, Cb.nntlsed the
Aeivspapcr Man in Ilia
PARIS, Jlarch 14. Count BonI de Cas
tcllane thrashed Fernand de Rodays, edi
tor of the Figaro, today for stating that
he, De Castellane, had betrayed the Dc
roulede plot on the occasion of the
funeral of the late President Fauro, Feb
ruary 23, 1899.
The affair Is the sensation of Paris.
Since the speech of M. Deroulede, at
Ban Sebastian, last month, In which he
Intimated that the royalists -of Paris had
notified the police of his attempted, coup
d'etat, after his refusal to allow -theJDuko
jof. Orleans to.appear lp the ranks of -the
agitators, very great 4nterest. has been
aroused respecting the identity of the
royalist emissary who approached M. De
roulede and M. Marcel-Habert, on that
occasion, the names suggested Including
Jules Guerln, the hero of Fort Chatrel,
while the royalists denied that the emis
sary acted In behalf of them. The duel
arranged to take place possibly today or
tomorrow near Lausanne,. Switzerland,,
between M, Deroulede and M. Buffet,
the agent of the Duke of Orleans, Is a
direct outcome of the question of the dis
cussion of the coup d'-etat which failed.
The paragraph in the Figaro, which
was the Immediate cause of the assault
upon M. Dc Rodays, was as follows:
"People have been asking who is the
person M. Deroulede wished to desig
nate. It appears that he is a member of
Parliament, and It Is affirmed that he is
the young deputy whose name is "best
known and who, on the eve of starting
for America with his young wife last
week, very loyally delayed his departure
in order to reply. If necessary, to the
polemics which may develop."
Count de Castellane has written the fol
lowing letter to the newspapers here:
"Regarding the Figaro, I was filled with
Indignation at the perfidious Insinuation,
accusing me of treachery. I begged my
father'ahd a friend, M. Morel, to accom
pany me to the residence of M. De Ro--days.
The latter received us, and after
a few brief observations, to which he
gave unsatisfactory responses, I inflicted
on him merited correction. I reserve a
similar one for any person permitting
himself the same accusations."
M. De Rodays gave the following ac
count of the affair:
"I received this morning the card ot
the Marquis of Castellane, whom I In
.structed to be shown in. I found my
self In the presence of three persons the
Marquis, the Count and a third person,
whose name I do not know. The Mar
quis1 said: 'You Insulted my son.' Count
Bonl de Castellane then asked me for an
explanation regarding a paragraph in the
Figaro. I replied that the paragraph
was in no way offensive to him, and that,
on tho contrary, it was worded in the
most courteous terms, and that his. .name
was not mentioned. The Count, then th.row
himself upon mo and punched, me. without
even giving me, time- to defend myself.
I believe It was a prearranged attack."
Count de Castellane was interviewed to
day at his residence, on the Ave du Bois
do Bologne, on his return from the resi
dence of M. De Rodays. He said:
Tes, I boxed M. De Rodays' ears sev
eral times in the presence of my father
and M. Morel, who is editor of the Jour
nal de Castellane. They ar here now,
and can give you particulars of the In
cident." The Count, who was calm, and smiling,
then retired to his study, and the'Mar
Quls gave the following account" of the
"The paragraph in Figaro clearly des
ignated Bonl as the traitor of whom M.
Deroulede spoke, but Bonl could not
have- acted such a role nor be suspected of
eo doing. It was a most outrageous In
sult to designate him. Bonl determined
to ask explanations of M. De Rodays, and
begged us to accompany him, In order to
serve as witnesses In case of need. "We
therefore went to M. De Rodays residence
this morning, which Is on the fifth floor
of the house, where we presented our
cards. M. De Rodays Immediately re
ceived us. He had on a gray dressing
robe. After a polite exchange of saluta
tions, the Count de Castellane said: 'You
published against me this morning an
abominable paragraph. I have come to
ask for explanations.' M. De Rodays
replied: 'Do you mean an article?' I in
terposed, saying: 'Have you not read your
paperr 'Yes, said M. De Rodays, 'but
I do not understand.' Bonl then ex
claimed impatiently: 'Will you retract?
Yes or no?' M. De Rodays began: 'I can
not.' Bonl, without allowing him to con
clude, said: 'Can you say formally that
it is not I you intended to refer to? Reply
quickly that it is not I; speak quickly,
or' at the same moment Bonl ap
proached him and boxed his ears several
times. M. De Rodays recoiled and Bonl
struck him again. "Wo then intervened
and stood In front of M. De Rodays.
Then, after polite salutations, the whole
party withdrew, M. De Rodays, who was
much agitated, accompanying us to the
M. De Rodays' seconds, M. Prestat and
M. Perlvier, have called at the residence
of M. De Castellane. The representatives
of the Count are not yet publicly known;
but It is understood that the four seconds
will meet tomorrow to make arrange
ments for the duel.
"Will Take Place at Lausanne
PARIS, March 15. A dispatch .to Le
Journal from Lausanne, after announc
ing the arrival of M. Buffet's seconds
there, says they have had a final inter
view .with the seconds of M. Deroulede,
and that the duel will take place at dawn
today (Friday), i-
LAUSANNE, Switzerland, March 11
M. Paul Deroulede arrived here today.
The police are shadowing him closely to
prevent" the duel. M. Andre Buffet has
arrived In Lausanne. M. Deroulede, re
ferring to the activity of the police, is
quoted as saying that If-be and M. Buffet
cannot elude them, there is nothing to
do but go elsewhere. The Magistrate has
intimated to the seconds that the duel
must not take place in the Canton of
ROUSE OF COMMONS.
Debate on the Proposed Army Re
forms. LONDON, March 14. Answering a ques
tion In the House of Commons today.
Lord Cranborne, the Under-Secretary for
the Foreign Office, said no steps had
"been taken by His Majesty's Govern
ment to revise the Hay-Pauncefote treaty,
but the government would be ready to
consider 'in a friendly way any proposals
made toward that object by the United
Lord Cranbourne, replying to questions
concerning Great Britain's negotiations
with the United States relative to Rus
sia and Manchuria, said the government
was In constant communication with the
powers concerned on every phase of the
Chinese question, but that It would be
contrary to public interest to enter into
particulars at the present moment.
The leaders of the opposition soarchlng
ly criticised the government's proposal for
tho increase and reform of the army. Sir
Henry Campbell-Bannerman said:
"The name and fame of Lord Roberts
arS a little too largely Invoked In this
question. Lord Roberts has spent nearly
the whole of his Allitary life in India,
where he has had to deal with a finished
article, but he has had no experience
wjth the peculiar difficulties found In
England of late utilizing and furnishing
Sir Henry declared that no justification
had been offered by the government for
increasing the aggressive military power
of Great Britain. "Dwelling upon the dif
ficulty of getting recruits, he asserted
that the country would not stand con
scription, and that the government was
introducing a military system and spirit
which would fatally change the character
of the nation and the ' empire.
' Sir "William Vernon Harcourt, who re
viewed the rapid Increase in the army
estimates during recent years, said that
nothing could be more hollow than the
Idea that great armies were a security
for peace, atlding that it was an easy
matter to make a war inevitable. He
reprobated the proposal to have 120,000
men ready to send abroad. "Other coun
tries need great armies," said Sir Will
iam, "because they have long and vul
nerable frontiers. England's position is
on the sea, and It is the fleet that must
be made sufficient at whatever cost."
- Mr. Balfour pointed out that England's
colonies and dependencies. were contigu
ous to great powers which might be at
war with her, and that her allies might
reasonably expect her assistance. The
chief object of the government, he said,
was1 not to Increase the number of troops,
but to make that number effective. The
only actual increase was the 10.000 garri
son veterans and the 25,000 yeomanry, an
Increase so small as to afford no justifi
cation for the. charges brought against
Sir Charles Dllke criticised the govern
ment's scheme as inadequate, declaring
that he attached more Importance to a
striking force equipped for going abroad
than to a horde of men at home. The de
bate was then adjourned.
After midnight and during the debate
on supply, a scene occurred. Lord Hugh
Cecil called for a division, and Timothy
Healy. rising with evident excitement,
asked the speaker whether the noble lord,
the Premier's son, was entitled to inter
rupt. He addressed some remarks to
Lord Hugh Cecil, which were drowned in
an uproar of shouts and cries of "Send
for the police!" The speaker sternly
called Mr. Healy to order, asking him to
Mr. Healy retorted: "I won't. You can
do what you like, but keep the Premier's
son, In order. You won't turn him cut."
Then, turning to Lord Hugh Cecil, Mr.
Healy exclaimed: "We won't stand non
sense from you." All the time the Na
tionalists were cheering, laughing and
shouting. "Turn him out!" "Fetch the
police," and the like. Eventually order
In the House of Lords today Lord Sal
isbury warmly supported the Bishop of.
Winchester's habitual drunkards bill. He
said he was entirely In sympathy with
the measure, which fixes higher penalties
than in the case of simple drunkenness,
and especially In the case of a person
drunk when in charge of a child. The
bill provides that habitual drunkenness
should be treated at, persistent cruelty
and entitle a wife to divorce. The sale of
liquor to Inebriates Is forbidden. Lord
Salisbury said he hoped that he or the
government might succeed in passing tho
bill. What wa ordinarily called temper
ance legislation was diminishing the
nnwer "of obtaining intoxicants. This
class of legislation was directed against
the persons guilty of Intemperance, but
1t also affected the large body who were
thereby restricted In their natural lib
erty by the desire 6f legislators to deal
with inebriates, Ich seemed to be un
just. The bill wasNassed on Its second
An Armenian Plot.
NEW YORK, March 14. The Turkish
Minister at Washington Is credited In a
Washington special to' the World as say
ing that a number of brigands have been
arrested In Asiatic Turkey. Many Mau
ser rifles of the smaller caliber were
seized. The Turkish Minister thinks that
this shows that the agencies which have
hitherto fomented troubles in Asia Minor
are still operating. Laws against the
importation of arms Into Turkey are
very strict That any quantity of arms
of the efficiency of the Mauser-rifle should

dicates that Armenian activities have not
ceased. The Mauser rifles found were
similar to a style used by the Spanish
troops In Cuba. It Is thought the ring
leaders have been secured nnd the prin
cipal magazines of arms and ammunition
discovered and destroyed.
Friction Cnune Delay.
NEW YORK, March 14. It Is stated,
says a Tribune dispatch from London,
that the delay In concluding the negoti
ation with Botha has been caused by some
frlctlpn between Lord Kitchener, Sir Al
fred Milner and the home government.
It Is now reported that as the basis of the
settlement of the South African question,
the Rand mines shall ultimately bear-the
cost of the rebuilding of the Boer farm
houses and the restocking of the farms,
and the feeling Is growing that If Lord
Kitchener had been left to settle the terms
himself, matters would have been ar
ranged several days ago. . The British
commander has throughout been anxious
to grant the Boers more liberal terms
than tho Imperial authorities at home
cared to sanction.
Charles T. Yerkes' Plana.

"I have come to England to look after
the work I have undertaken here, name
ly, the Charing Cross & Hempstead Rail
way. That Is my sole mission. I do not
know how England will take to American
methodst but It strikes me there is a great
field In' London. Our railway will run
under ground to a point several" miles
beyond Hempstead Heath. Thence we
propose to run an extensive trolley line
seven miles farther."

in this" colony, DeJager, has been con
cluded. He was sentenced to five years'
Imprisonment, and to pay a fine of 5000.

not a naturalized burgher, he owed al
legiance to Natal.

PDKIN, March H.-China has strenu.
ously objected to the limitations of the
Manchurian convention respecting the im
portation of arms, the reorganization of
the army and the practical control by
Russia over Chinese officials.
At today's meeting of the foreign Min
isters the question of indemnities was
further considered. LI Hung Chang Is re

THE RUSSIAN AGREEMENT.
State Department Unable to Protest
Ofllclally Aprnlnst It.
WASHINGTON, March 14.-Our Gov
ernment has not yet been able to obtain
anything like an official statement of the
contents of the alleged agreement be
tween Russia and China respecting tho
protectorate over Manchuria. The oppo
sition to the Russian move has not crys
tallized up to this moment, but It is felt
that there is every prospect of a consum
mation of the agreement, unless tho
other powers, which now hang undecid
ed, speedily come to a determination to
oppose It. In view of this impending cri
sis, the officials here would regard as of
secondary Importance the negotiations at
Pekin respecting the indemnities and pun
ishments were it not for the belief that
there is great danger by undue Insistence
by tho Ministers at Pekin upon the col
lection of Impossible indemnities and tho
continuance of punitive measure?. The
United States Government will be obliged
In deference to public sentiment here to
maintain an attitude of exact neutrality
and. withhold any assistance that might
otherwise be rjasonably requested, in the
greater purpose of checking the con
summation of an agreement which Is al
most certain to result In the. partition of
China. So, as already stated. Special
Commissioner Rockhill Is acting und'r
the instructions of the department, do
ing his best to keep the demands of the
Ministers within the bounds of the ability
of the Chinese Government to meet, there
by following the consistent policy of the
department, laid down as far back as last
Such Information as has come to the
hands of the officials Indicates that the
Russian agreement consists of 12 articles,
not nine, as has been published. The
chief concern of officials here has been
to learn how far these articles affect the
permanent future of Manchuria. On
their face, It Is said, they show a return
of Manchuria to China, which would seem
to be quite In keeping with the desire
of all the powers, but this is accomplished
upon certain conditions Imposed upon
China, and It Is understood that thesn
conditions. In effect, establish a Russian
suzerainty over Manchuria, with a Rus
sian official occupying the chief execu
tive position, quite similar to that of tho
British Viceroy of India. Comparing this
cortdltlon with that in India. It is said
that If the present agreement Is consum
mated Manchuria will be much In tho
same position as one of the Indian states,
having a certain degree of Independence
and yet conforming all Its actions to the
supreme authority over It.
Chinese affairs received considerable at
tention at the State Department today, as
the Chinese Minister, the British Ambas
sador and the Russian Ambassador fol
lowed each other in long conferences with
Mr. HaV. "It lie undemood that In the in
formal discussion with Count Cassini, an
earnest Intimation was conveyed to him
that it would be most helpful. In dealing
with the subject. If a clear and explicit
understanding of Russia's plans in this
particular matter were forthcoming.
Nenrlns a Pencefnl Solution.
BERLIN. March 14. The opinion is
gaining ground In official circles here that
the Manchuria question is nearing a
peaceable solution, but that Russia, In
order to secure her Interests In North
China against possible Japanese interfer
ence, will during the month Increase her
troops there, which now number in round
figures 100,000 men.
The North German Lloyd Line has pe
titioned Count von Bulow to declaro that,
in view of the Importance of Shanghai to
European trade, an Improvement in the
condition of navigation In the Woo Sung
River, now little better than a mere tidal
channel, be Included In the final peace
negotiations with China. It Is understood
thnt British and French steamship com
panies have addressed similar petitions to
their respective governments.
Relntlonn Becoming Strained.
LONDON, March 14. "Advices from
New Chwang assert that Admiral Allex
eff has reinstated the Tartar Genernl, Tsln
Chin, in full command at Mukden, sup
ported by 4000 Russian troops," says the
Shanghai correspondent of the Times.
"This Is the Russian method of reinstat
ing the Chinese foreign officials."
The Vienna correspondent of the Dally
Times, discussing the gravity of the situa
tion raised by Russia's attitude In Man
churla. says: "The relations between St.
Petersburg and at least one other Euro
pean capital are unquestionably strained,
although It Is quite unlikely that these
conditions will lead to a conflict. In fact.
Russia's financial embarrassment Is so
great that she will be almost compelled
to take some account of European pro
test." A British View.
LONDON, March 14. The Globe this af
ternoon continues to bewail the nervous
ness of the British Foreign Office In re
gard to the Russian activity In Manchu
ria, and reiterates Its appeal to the United
States "to rid Itself of the Influence of
Wu Ting Fang (the Chinese Minister at
Washrlngton) and the glamor of Russian
diplomacy," and thereby save the North
ern China market to the cotton mills of
the Southern States. The rest of the long
article, however, seems to Indicate that
tho Globe, like others. Is not really so
anxious to aid American commerce as to
help the widespread British desire to se
cure the assistance of Washington in
stemming Russian ambition, restoring
British prestige and keeping the open
door for British trade.
May Delay Negotiations.
SHANGHAI, March 14. It Is understood
that the negotiations in Pekin are likely
to be suspended, owing to the Manchu
rian difficulty. The Chinese merchants
and other residents here have Issued a
call for a mass meeting tomorrow to dis
cuss the adoption of measures aimed to
uphold the Chinese court against yielding
to the Russian demands.
Reactionary Governor Removed.
LONDON, March 15. Hsl LI, the reac
tionary Governor of Shan Si. has been
removed, says the Shanghai correspondent
of the Standard, and Chun Hsun, Gov
ernor of Shen SI, succeeds him. Tuan
Fang, a pro-foreign Manchu, has been ap
pointed acting Governor of Shen Si.
Neiv British Submarine Boats.
LONDON, March 14. Now that the
British Government has admitted that It
is building submarine boats, the Vlckers

placement of 120 tons. The main engine,

pedoes under a variety of conditions. The
armament of three boats will consist of a
single torpedo-tube, located in tho bow of
the boat. They will be able to carry five
torpedoes, each 11 feet 5 Inches long.

VETOED THE EVANS BILL
GOVERNOR WELLS, OF UTAH,
STATES HIS OBJECTIONS.
If It Became n Law It Wonld Brlnf?
Forth a Contitltntlonal Amend
ment AgnLiiHt Polygamy.
SALT LAKE, March 14. Governor
Wells has vetoed the Evans bill, relating
to the miking of complaints and com
mencing of prosecutions In criminal cases.
The following is the full text of the
veto message sent to the Senate tonight:
"To the Senate: I have the honor to
return herewith without approval Senate
bill No. 113, an act amending section
4611 of the revised statutes of Utah, 1S9S,
In relation to the making of complaints
and commencing of prosecutions In crim
inal cases. No offlclil act of my life has
been approached by me with a sense of re
sponsiblllty so profound as is involved In
the consideration of this bill. It is a
measure of the supremest importance,
and in Its consequences for good or ill
It easily surpasses any other proposition
that ever came before this common
wealth for legislative and executlvs de
termination. It has been argued In both
branches of the Assembly with splendid
force and ability, while Its provisions
have doubtress been eagerly discussed
in the remotest hamlet of our state.
With due allowances for the exaggera
tions that may be expected from thosa
who warmly support, and from thoso.
who, with eqnal warmth, antagonize the,
measure, I accord to all of them, without
any reservation whatever, full credit -for
absolute sincerity, breadth of sympathy,
and a desire for the public welfare, which
of themeselves render it a noteworthy
nnd unique piece of proposed legislation.
But these conditions only serve to maka
the responsibility of the executive more
weighty, and I could have wished to be
spared the test. Nevertheless, the recol
lection of my oath of office, the require
ments of my duty, as I understand It,
and the conviction of my own and best
judgment and my conscience unite In de
manding of me that I withhold approval
from this bill. If I know myself I can
sincerely say that I am anxious that the
very best and wisest thing shall be done
In respect to all matters that have vexed
us so much In times past. And knowing
this whole people as I do, it is my Arm
conviction that whatever the present
feeling may be, they will be sincerely
grateful in the days to come if this
measure is not written upon the statuto
"The patience, loyalty and conserva
tism of our citizens are so widely recog
nized that only by the passage of such
a bill as this can their reputation be In
jured. The broad minded and Intelligent
everywhere accept the situation here as
It exists, and are content to let time
camplete the solution of the problem.
Even the bigoted and the meddlesome
have to admit that with rare exceptions
the conduct and Integrity of the people
are above reproach. In my opinion no
thing can be clearer than thit this bill.
If passed, would be welcomed and em
ployed as a most effective weapon
against the very classes whose condlt'on
it is intended to ameliorate. Furthermore.
I have every reason to believe Its en
actment would be the signal for the gen
eral demand upon the National Congress
for a constitutional amendment directed
solely against certain social conditions
here, a demand which, under the circum
stances would assuredly be complied with.
While It may be urged that in any' event
only the few could be made to suffer. Is
It not an odious thought, repulsive to
every good citizen of whatsoever creed
or party that the whole state should
thus be put under a ban? Surely there is
none so selfish and unpatriotic as to urge
that this Is preferable to the endurance
of a few isolated Instances of prosecution,
not backed, as they are, by either respect
able moral support or sympathy. AH
of us can readily recall the conditions of
the past as compared with those ot today.
In the shortest memory still remains In
cidents of that distressing period shortly
before statehood, during which so much
sorrow and bitterness stalked through
our community. Of still more recent date
no longer than two years ago another
outburst was threatened and to some ex
tent was manifested. But as a termi
nation of the first, came concession and
amnesty and evidences of good faith and
at length statehood. In which everybody
rejoiced; and while, as a result of the
second, the sun of our prosperity was for
n time obscured, the clouds at length have
rolled away and Utah, united, hopeful
and vigorous, is marching bravely for
ward to the music of the Union.
"I yield to no one in affection for those
of my people who from the highest mo
tives and beoause they believed It a
divine command, entered Into the relation
of plural marriage. Born and reared In
Utah, myself a produc of that marriage
system, taught from Infancy to regard
my lineage as approved of the Almighty,
and as proud today, as I have evar been,
of my heritage. It will be granted, I
trust, that evtry Instinct of my nature
reaches out to shield my friends from
harm and to protect them frcm unjust
attack. Their cause Is my cause, and
when they are hurt, I, am hurt, for I am
part of them. But in that same heart,
which Is filled with sympathy for them.
I find also the. solemn feeling that this
bill holds out only a false hope for pro
tection, and that In offering a phantom
of relief to a few, it In reality. Invites
a deluge of discord and disaster upon all.
For these reasons, briefly and Imper
fectly stated, and for many others which
mjght be given nt length, I nm unable to
approve the bill now before me.

At the recent Gutenberg celebrations
at Mainz, the great festival of printing,
there was a certain programme of na
tional airs: England was honored by one
representative item. It was, let us blush
to have It recorded, "Tarara-boom-deay" !
which we had secretly hoped to live down.
The slime of the music-hall song Is
over all the surface of our existence, and
there was nothing which suggested more
genuine misgivings to those who thought
of the noble battle songs of Germany and
Austria, or even of the "Marseillaise,"
than the banal and vulgar sentiment of
the jigging doggerel to which our men
went out to war. But the wild exultation
of a huge crowd round a great football
match Is the really significant suggestion
of the fund of animal force in the na
tion and of its perverted employment.
When the German Emperor casually men- j
tloned upon one of his recent public ad
dresses that English merchants were uni
versally reported to be too fond of sport,
he laid his finger upon the very symptom
of our complaint. Our weakness, as com
pared with our two greatest competitors,
is our different view of work. One of
them at least lives to work; we work to
live. The German, with his thorough ln
'tellectual Interest 'in his own line, takes
more pleasure In work than in play. The
American goes with irresistible vigor
into Loth work and play. But the average
Briton thinks far more of sport than of
his job; and thinks far too much ot
sport while at his Job. The absence of a
sufficient mental Interest in the things
that matter there. Indeed, we reach the
root of the national evil, and the exact
definition of England's danger. "Nay,
then," said the grasshopper to the ants,
"I was not Idle neither, for I sung out
the whole season." The situation is as
old as Eesop. We are not, perhaps, more
addicted to pleasure than others, but our
pleasures are the most brainless and ab
sorbing in the world.
FIFTY CENTS EXTRA.
Sheriffs Fee BUI Imposes Unneces
sary Cost on Litigants.
The Sheriffs fee bill passed at the re
cent legislative session has already been
subjected to objection, some attorneys be
ing of the opinon that the charge of 50
cents for a certificate where the same Is
attached to a summons should not be
made. SheriffFrazier submitted a letter
to the County 'Auditor asking for Instruc
tions, and received a reply that tho
charge is a .proper one, as the Auditor
rends the section referred to, and advis
ing him to continue to collect it. The
letter' of the Sheriff was as follows:
Hon. W. H. Pope, County Auditor of Mult
nomah County. Portland. Or. Dear Sir: I de
sire to write you regarding Senate bill No. 38,
which was approved by the Governor on the
2Sth day of February. 1001. which bill was to
establish and regulate tho fees to be collected
by the Sheriff of Multnomah County. Oregon,
for the service of papers.
Article 17 of section 4 of this bill reads as
follows: "For making any certificate except
the returns upon the writs and process In this
section enumerated. 50 cent."
Previous to this article in said bill the fees
for service of various kinds of papers "are set
out. and by a literal construction of ald ar
ticles I understand the law so as to read that
tho service of papers will be as stated togeth
er with 50 cents added to each paper which
shall be certified to by the Sheriff; for in
stance, the fee as stated for the service of
summons upon the first defendant shall be $1,
and for all other defendants 25 cents (In ar
ticle 2 of section 4 In this bill), so that, with
the addition of the 50 centi for certifying to
fame, the fee. for aervlcn of summons, uptfn
the first defendant shall be ?1 0O. and tor oil
other defendants shall b 75 cents.
From conversations had with Judge Cloland
and the District Attorney regarding article 17
of section 4 of this bill. 1 believe it Is their
opinion that I should not collect the 50 centa
mentioned for certificate, but, as the law so
reads, we could not see ourselves clear to col
lect anything less than the fees as tttnted In
I therefore write you for an opinion In re
gard to this matter whether or not- I shall
accept the opinion of either the District At
torney or JudEe Cleland; but in so doing I
desire that It shall be distinctly understood
as between the courty and Sheriff that If 1
shall be so Instructed not to coltect the 00
cents for certificate of a true copy, which Is
attached to each service, that the county shall
not hereafter look to me for this fee. which
would within a year's time amount to a large
I await your opinion In regard to this mat
ter, and until same Is received I shall insist
on the payment of 50 centa for each certificate
attached to papers for service or otherwise.
Auditor Pope answered that the law
was plain, and must be obeyed, and for
the Sheriff to continue to collect for each
certificate. If any one is not satisfied
with this rullns, he may appeal to the

PUNISHING THE CAYUSES.
Pioneer's Recollections of a Cam
paign Against Indians.
ASHLAND, March 12. (To the Editor.)
About June 1, 1S4S, the close of the war
to punish the Cayuse Indians for the
Whitman massacre, a call was made for
volunteers from the Army to remain and
hold Fort Waters until the immigrants
had passed through that section of coun
try. The required number of men offered
their services promptly and remained un
til about September 15 following, under
the command of Captain William Martin.
Wo were about E0 strong. Peace had not
been made. We were SCO miles from the
Willamette settlements, while In the two
main battles fought under Colonel Glllam
the Indians had from 700 to 1000 warriors
In the field.
The fort was a stockade, with bastions,
and the horse corral was made In the
same style, four miles below the present
City of Walla Walla. The Cayuses had
driven their stock out of the country, but
many horses came back. As soon as we
gathered them In, some "friendly" came
and claimed them, and they were friven
up In pursuance to orders left to us. We
scouted the country a good deal, going
frequently to the Umatilla, where the
immigrant road comes off the Blue Moun
tains. Some 25 miles from the fort, finally, on
one of our trips, we saw the old, familiar
dust of the plains rising along the road,
and were soon among the Immigrants and
most cordially received and welcomed
no standing back and waiting for Intro
ductions or formalities of any kind, but
a general handshaking, girls not excepted,
no apologies being made, for they were as
dirty as ourselves. They knew they were
in a country where the missionaries had
been murdered and many battles recently
fought, but did not know there was a sol
dier within 300 miles of them. We camped
with them, cheered them up by telling
how few of us had spent the Summer
in tho hostile country, told them where
the best camping places were ahead, cau
tioned them not to scatter, but to travel
as compactly as possible, and treat the
Indians civilly, but not with familiarity.
Then giving them a display of our horse
manship by hanging on the sides of our
horse? while running, exposing but little
of our bodies, yelling and firing our guns,
we struck the trail for our mountamb'us
I was then In my 19th year, and now,
nearing 72, I find more pleasure In look
ing back on the past than In anticipat
ing the future, as I did then. For this
reason. If this should meet the eye of any
one who spent the Summer of 1S43- at Fort
Waters, I hope he will write ma at Ash
land, Or, for I can't remember meeting
one of them since our separation, though
I have met many who- were In the cam
paign that ended by leaving us to held the
fort. I want to learn of them if my mem
ory is correct in regard to a number of
Incidents of historical Interest now.

William Janauski, of Brooklyn, a Pole.
28 years old. blue-eyed, falr-sklnned, tall

In the misty future. He spent 3500 houw
making the clock.
The clock Is taller than Its maker. It
Is housed In an elaborate case of mahog
any, oak and blrdseye maple, which In
four feet wide and beautifully carved. Tho
face of the clock and Its hands are of
wood. In Its three towers are chimes of
silvery bells which peal musically at tho
hours, the half hours and the quarters.
After each hour has been chimed -and
then rung on a solemn bell, the twelve
apostles emerge from their small house
beneath the dial and solemnly proceed In
single line around their little courtyard.
Then they march back Into their Home.
At the same time the towers of the clock,
and much of its interior, are brightly
llghted with electricity. Tall statues of St.
Joseph and St. Christopher, who bears
the Christ-child on his shoulder, stand on
either side of the plaza whereon the. apos
tles march. The figures of the apostles
are of carved alabaster, three Inches In
Other phenomena attend the striking oC
the hour. When the last apostle has van
ished, four very erect little soldiers pull
the lanyards of four little cannon, which
go off with fierce little roars. AH of thes-e
things are operated by electricity. If they
do not furnish enough excitement each
hour, there still remain the. music-box and
the phonograph Ordinarily, these per
form but once an hour, though they can
bo set so as to play once every five xmln
utes. The music-box has five tunes.
Lovejoy Recollection Shctl
Light on Its Purpose.
ASHLAND. Or.. March 12, (To -the Edi
torsWill you kindly Inform me if Adju-tant-.General
A. L. Lovejoy. of the Cayus,e
War. is the same man who started with
Dr.- Marcus Whitman, October 3. 1S42. on
his famous ride to Washington. D. C. to
save Oregon from falling into the possc-sion-of
Great Britain? If so. did Mr. Love
joy learn from the jtloctor the object of the
Journey? Mr. Lovejoy being an intelli
gent, patriotic American, young and ad
venturous, it would seem the doctor would
naturally confide In him and tell him th
object of the journey as soon as he was
fairly out of the hearing of the EnarliU
at Fort Walla Walla. C.K. KLUM.
Lovejoy was a fellow-traveler with
Whitman on the return trip from Wash
ington. In 1S76 he gave his recollections
"The doctor often expressed himself to
me about the manner In which he was
received at Washington. . . . The- doe
tor had several Interviews with President
Tyler, Secretary Webster and many mem
bers, of Congress touching the interests
of Oregon. He urged the immediate ter
mination of the treaty with Great Britain
relative to this country, and the exten
sion of the laws of the United States,
nnd to provide liberal inducements to em
igrants to come to this Const."
"White .student of this much-discussed
point In Oregon, history concede that there
is no reason to question the accuracy of
Lovejpy's recollections, they contend that
nothing Lovejoy has written indicates
that he understood that Whitman's er
rand was to save Oregon.
