WILL TAKE TIIEIR TIME
Tie Senate km Adjourns Without
NOMINATIONS STILL HANG FIRE
Republicans May Try to Prevent Dem
ocrats From Organizing.
Washington, March 10. The senate,
after a 10-minute session , adjonrued till
From the action today, it is evident
the senate intend taking it time in the
matter of confirming appointments. It
wa supposed aa toon a the committee
were reorganized the nominations so far
would receive prompt action, and that
an executive tession would be had today.
At the previoua session it wa ordered
that roon aa the committee were ap
pointed nominations would be referred.
These might have been considered this
morning In committee and confirmed
today, but the adjournment of the sen
ate until Monday make it impossible
for any of the officials named by the
president to assume their duties until
the middle of next week. A prominent
senator on the democratic side laid this
morning the senate waa not in any great
hurry to go into the business of con
firming nomination, and intimated that
possibly it would wait until the elective
officer w ere selected. The senate would
be reorganized if it waadetermined to do
this at once. A soon aa this wa done,
he tald, the senate would confirm every
nomination aent In up to that time.
Immediately after the senate adjourned
today the democratic caucus committee
resumed its sitting, and took up the
matter of the reorganization of the elec-
tive officer of the senate. The commit
tee will be ready to report to the full
caucus early next week, possibly Tues-
dav morning. Whether the democrat
intend to reorganize or not is an inter
esting question. If the democrats at
tempt to reorganize at this session, it is
almost certain the republicans will show
fight to prevent the consummation of
the plan if within their power.

Washington, March 16. Secretary
Carlisle declined to confirm or deny the
statement that the revenue cutter Bush
at San Francisco had been ordered to

will be placed at Blount's disposal on
hia arrival, and unless arrangements can
be made for the Pacific Mail steamer,
which tail for China on the 23d insl.,
to touch at Honolulu, Blount will sail on
the Rush. It will take that vessel about
a week to make the trip. The supposi
tion that the Bosh has been ordered for
this city receive confirmation from the
fact that revenue and marine officers,
who three days ago denied positively
that any order to this effect had been
given, are this morning dumb a oys
ters on the subject.

aries were subject to much ill-treatment
by the natives who were not restrained

posed to have burned itself 00 1, but it is
now burning fie. er that ever. The sur

HARRISON THE MAN FOR 1896
The Great Northern Railway Trying to
Get a Steamship Rate Into
New York, March 17. Ex-United
State Treasurer Huston, speaking of
the currency question, said he thought
Cleveland was going to have a hot time
trying to get congress to legislate to suit
him in an endeavor to have the Sher
man silver purchase act repealed. He
"I believe the majority in congress is
for free silver, and H the president does
not give the member what they desire
in the way of patronage I predict a reg
ular war on him. It rather looks like
war now, and when the fur begins to fly
the country will have infinite amuse
ment. I do not think a single gold bond
should be issued. We should stop the
coinage of silver, for that is the only way
to solve the financial problem."
"It is said you advocate ex-President
Harrison for the presidency in 1896?"
"I think he would be a logical candi
date. When the people have had time
to consider his administration he will
be a more popular man than now. The
result may be his nomination again in
Rome, March 17. A bomb was ex
ploded in the Ancini Mattel palace, the
official residence of United States Min
ister Porter early this morning. Fortu
nately nobody was hurt and but little
damage was done to the building. No
cause is known for the deed.
The building was occupied by two
other families besides that of United
States Minister Potter. As a similar
outrage was perpetrated in the same
building in 1892, and as Potter had only
engaged the building for occupation in
the closing day of that year, it is be
lieved the fact of the place being inhab
ited by an American minister had noth
ing to do with the outrage, but that the
motive for causing the explosion was to
gratify a desire for vengeance upon the
proprietor of the place, irrespective of
whether the residents were injured or
not. This was the motive suspected at
the time of the first explosion, and there
is no reason to take a different view.
Dare HlU'e Boom.
Tacoma. Wash., March 17. Senator
David Bennett Hill, of New York, is to
visit Washington in the fall and will
address the annual meeting of the
Democratic Society of Washington, to be
held at New Whatcom. The announce
ment waa made last night by one cf the
most prominent democrats in the state.
According to his story the date Is fixed,
an invitation has been sent, and Senator
Hill has accepted it. This trip, it is
said, will mark the beginning of Senator
Hill's presidential boom for the cam
paign of 1896.

Another Hlf Fire. .
Bohton, March 19. Fire broke out
about 7 o'clock this morning in Tromont
temple, onTremont street, opposite tho
Tremont House, and before noon the en
tire structure was gutted. No mishaps

the upper windows of the Bumham
building and W. S. Butler's building, ad
joining on Tremont street, placing the
Parker house and the Park hotel in
danger In the rear and alarming the fire
mon lest it should get down among tho
rookeries on Province street. At 9:30
o'clock the fire was well under control,
the 1,000 occupants at tho Parker houso
and Park hotel returning to their rooms.
The loss on the temple is variously
estimated at from $325,000 to 37r,000,

Mortgage Tax Law.
With a view to ascertaining the prob-
ablo course of tho assessors throughout
the state, now that the new mortgage
tax law has gone into effect, the Orego
nian addressed to each of them the fol
"Dkak Sib: In view of the wide
spread discussion upon the subject of
listing mortgage- notes for taxation, will
you stale very briefly, whether in your
opinion any considerable portion of such
notes can or will be assessed in your
county, and oblige."
Of many replies we append that of
the assessor of Wasco county :
"The Dali.es, Or., March 19. In
reply to your favor of recent date asking
me to briefly state my opinion in regard
to the mortgage tax law, I would say:
Being satisfied that the larger part of
the taxpayers are well pleased with the
repeal of the mortgage tax law and de
duction clause, I would like to follow
the intent of the new law, and not the
letter of the old. I believe that all
notes secured by mortgage on real estate
should bo exempt from taxation, with
no deduction for indebtedness. All per
sonal notes, moneys and accounts held
on the 1st day of March should be as
sessed to the holder, thereof,' listing
nothing that would tend to throw a
double tax on any property. I believe
if all the asscsors in the state would
pursue this mode of assessment, and bo
sustained by the county courts, there
need be no trouble in getting out of tho
dilemma that we are unfortunately
placed in. J. W. Koontz."
