The Oreconian reports that at the reg
ular monthly meeting of the Kod and
Gun Club a communication was received
from the Washington fish commissioners,
offering to furnish to the club, free of
charge, sufficient black bass fry to stock
the streams of Oregon with these famous
game fish. There was a great diversity
of opinion among the members as to the
advisability of accepting the oiler of the
commissioners, and a discussion followed
which terminated in the matter being
set aside for further consideration.
While the black bass is a fine game bah
and no easy game for the sportsman, it
has the reputation of being exceedingly
voracious, destroying its more fragile
rivals. "I am not in favor of the intro- j
d action of the black bass in Oregon."
said Tom Farrel, secretary of he club,
last evening. "They are too fond of eat
ing. If we were to stock our rivers now
with small fry, in four or five years we
would have all the bass we wanted, but
long before that time they would com
mence their work of destruction. Tiie
Columbia was stocked with carp and
catfish some years ago, and now we are
overrun with these useless fish. Why,
catfish have become an easy prey, even
for badgers. Not long ago I was passing
the gayety of nations." Blessed be the
man who in this sad, tragic time is able
to "iurreaae the gayety of nations."
Senator John P, Jones, now in New
York city, says that he does not expect
to see harmony exist during the next
year between the administration and
the senate regarding the fiuaucial ques
tion. He said : "the treasury depart
ment and the I'nited Stats senate do
not agree on the gold and silver ques
tions, aud naturally I look for friction.
I am not familiar with Mr. Cleveland's
financial policy, but I do not think that
he is especially pleased because the sen
ate finance committee has a majority in
tavor oi silver, rue committee is in
favor of a silver policy, and after care
fully looking over the ground I do not
think that the next congress will pass
the Sherman repeal bill. The gold scare
we had recently was a newly manufact
ureu article ; it was ot a kind I never
before heard of. Heretofore all financial
scares have been brought about when
money was scarce, and the panic did
some harm. The recent gold scare was
shouted about and forced upon the peo
ple when money could be had in abun
dance, and no harm was done. There
was no occasion for a scare. One kind
of money is as good as another to the
American people so long as we are not
on a single basis. If we come to a gold
standard, of course we shall need more
gold, but it would not cause much re
lief to issue a few bonds. All we want
is plenty of money to carry on business
and ay good wages, and we have that
money in silver."
a rumpus with England or Germany or
France or Japan or among themselves,
the United States will do the fighting
and pay the piper. The protectorate
seems to be somewhat one-sided.
A MYSTERIOUS CASE.
The search for little Gladys Miller,
who so mysteriouslv disappeared from
her home in Eastern 0egon six months
ago, has come to a fruitless ending.
The circumstances surrounding ttie
child's disappearance, and the eagerness
with which the slightest clues which
might lead to her restoration to her
is said to be the extreme prices for fancy

novelist, Is dying, despite his trip to
Samoa in search of renewed health. He
has consumption, and it is said that his
excesses in cigarette-smoking have
greatly aggravated the disease. He is a

boyhood incidents in his book "Edin

The road law as amended centralizes
the county road business in the countv
courts of the several counties. Taxes
are paid in cash, no levy to exceed five
mills, and are dispensed and appor
tioned to the several districts by the
county court. A special road law was
also passed that will enable persons
owning property along any particular
road to improve it to any deeree of ner-
lection, the property within three miles
of the road on each tide to pay the costs,
provisions being made for meeting the
indebtedness thus acquired by instal
ments, payable over a space of ten
years. The law is very materially a
change from the old one, and all its ins
and outs and how it will operate are not
ery well understood. The most im
portant thing of all in road making is
money and any system without plenty
of money will be only partial success.

presented to him by some ladies of New
Orleans in 1861 for his services in cap

the property, the testator instincts his
executors to have his body cremated,
provided, however, that there was a
crematory in successful operation in or
near New Orleans at the time of his
death. The general gave as a reason for
