Salkh, Or., Dec. 9. Proceedings are
about to lie brought enjoining the loca
tion of tlie branch insane asylum iu East
ern Oregon and the soldiers' home at
Roselmrg. Papers have already been
drawn up, but no lioud has yet been
given and the papers have not been
served, and it is said this evening they
may not lie. A large number of business
men and representative citizens were in
terviewed today, aud almost without ex
ception all are opposed to tlie injunc
tion. On the subject the Statesman will
say editorially tomorrow :
"A new feature of the action at law is
that the injunction seeks to prevent the
location of a branch insane asylum at
some site to be hereafter selected in
Eastern Oregon. So fur as the soldiers'
home case is concerned, the supreme
court has already rendered a decision
showing pretty clearly the position of
tlie court concerning this quasi-federal
institution. The branch asj luui injunc
tion is another mattor entirely, involv
ing new questions not heretofore touched
U)ion by the courts. It is not known
'what motive prompts these injunctions
but they show conclusively the operation
of some power whose subtle purpose will
result" disastrously to Western Oregon.
The framers of tlie constitution had no
purpose to prevent the location of branch
suite institutions at convenient points
throughout the state, nor have the people
of Oregon ever so construed the corstitu
tion, else several state normal schools,
the state university, agricultural college
etc., would now be congregated at Salem.
Tlie people of Western Oregon and
Salem are almont unanimously in favor
of these federal and branch institutions
being situated where the legislature or
their several boards locate them.

Toi'kka, Dec. 7. The Danish consul at
Kansas City is here trying to interest
millers in the Gulf transportation pro
ject. He says he lias secured pledges
of 40 millers in the state to ship their ex
port flour by the new Gulf steamers to
Copenhagen. lie says there is nothing
in the report that wheat cannot lie
shipped by the Gulf route, E. J. Close,
late president of tlie North and South
railroad convention, says he has a letter
from a responsible railroad builder, otler
ing to build a road from the British pos
sessions to the Gull and turn it over on a
guaranteed interest of 4 per cent ou the
cost. The proposition will be consid
ered at the next meeting of the provis
ional board of directors in January.
Close believes tlie road will be com
menced in six months and completed in
two years, at a cost of about $38,000,000.
The Couchlln Trial.
Ciik'aoo, Dec. II. Taking of evidence
in the Coughlin trial began this morn
ing. Tlie first witness was ex-Captain
Villlers, of the Lakeview police in whose
territory Dr. Cronin'i body was found.
Captain Villiers testified to the finding
of Cronin'i body iu a catch-basin aud
the numlier and character of the wounds.
For a sore throat there is nothing
better than a flannel bandage dampenod
with Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It
will nearly always effect a cure in one
night's time. This remedy is also a fa
vorite for rheumatism and has cured
very severe cihds. 60 cent bottles for

THE FRENCH EXCITED
By tlie Explosion of a Bomb in me
Chamber or Deputies.
THROWN' FROM THE GALLERIES
Over 8o Persons Wounded, Though It
Is Xot Thought Any Were
Pakih, Dec. 9. A bomb was thrown
in the chamber this afternoon, happily
without fatal results. M. Marmin had
been shaking from the tribune and had
descended to resume his seat, when a
man in the gallery above mentioned
throw a bomb toward the floor. The
bomb had a time fuse attached to it, for
as it passed the head of Professor Le
mire, deputy for flazelbruch, it ex
ploded with a terrific report. Dense
clouds of smoke and dust ascended,
shutting out from view for a time those
sitting in the body of the house. For a
single instant the house was perfectly
quiet, aud then, members and others
realizing what had occurred, there was
the wildest excitement. The officers dp
tailed to guard the building were the
first to gHin their senses. They first
shut the great doors leading to the
chamber, to prevent the escape of the
liorub-thrower. The people in the gal
leries fled in wild disorder, fearing that
other bombs would be thrown. They
were in a state bordering on frenzy, and
almost fell over each other in their wild
but futile attempts to get out of the
building. One lady, whom it was sub
sequently learned was an American, had
been Lit in the forehead by a piece of
the casting of the bomb, and she fled
with blood streaming over her face.
Before the chamber adjourned a small
army of nurses and physicians arrived.
They took possession of the committee
rooms and speedily transformed them
into hospitals, where the woands of the
injured were examined for scraps of iron
aud were then bandaged, that the pa
tients might be removed safely to their
Late tonight it was announced the
police have in custody a man who, on
entering the tribune, refused to remove
his overcoat when requested. The man
referred to is wounded and was among
the first carried out. Another man,
who attempted to evade the doorkeeper
and escape from the precincts of the
chamber, is also being closely watched.
Some of the spectators recognize him as
the thrower of the bomb and his name
is Lenoir. Six suspected people who
tried to escape with Lenoir are detained
for examination. Lenoir recently ar
rived from Bordeaux, and has been un
der police surveillance ever since.
Vlie I HI lufai tory Condition Iu Which
Cleveland la Placed.
From our Kfifiilur Correspondent
Washington, Dec. 8, 18'J:!.
Tlie troubles of tlie administration are
increasing with a rapidity that must be
appalling to the stolid occupant of the
white house. Congress had hardly got
through listening to tlie dreary plati
tudes and misleading statistics with
which tlie president's message was filled
before bills and resolutions began to be
introduced in the house and senate of a
nature calculated to be far from pleasing
to the administration, and facts to be
made public that falsified statements
made in tlie message. Senator Hoar
started the ball ou the Hawaiian ques
tion by the introduction of a resolution.
which was passed, calling on tlie presi
dent for copies of all correspondence and
nstructions emanating from the admin
istration on that subject, and a rattling
short speech criticising the remarkable
position of the administration was made
by Senator Dolpli. Representative Hitt,
of Illinois, introduced a similar resolu-1
tion in the house. Senator Hill also an
tagonized, in a speech, the position of
Mr. Cleveland on this Hawaiian business.
Bills have been introduced iu both house
and senate, by democrats, which carry
on their faces condemnation of the ad
ministration pension policy. Take it all
in all the indications are that the "wild
team," as General Harrison so aptly
termed the democratic majority in con
gress, will be harder to control than it
was at the extra session.
Mr. Cleveland stated in hi usual dog
matic style, in his message, that the
deficiency iu revenue ly reason of the
Cleveland tariff bill would only be $"J8,
000,000. Now it is officially announced
by the treasury department that it will
be at least ftiO.OOO.OoO. He requested
that the money question lie let alone.
and Representative Bland, chairman of
the lioiiHe coinage committee, announces
that bis free coinage bill, one of the fir?t
introduced at this eeesion,1s to be re
ported and passed.
The republican paty is fortunate in
having political matters in the senate
looked after by a caucus committee made
up of the following senators: Allison
of Iowa, Aldrich of Rhode Island, Hale
of Maine, Collom of Illinois, Dolph of
Oregon, Manderson of Nebraska, Quay
of Pennsylvania, Washburn of Minne
sota, and Dubois of Idaho, the first
named being chairman and the last sec
retary. It would have been difficult for
Senator Sherman, chairman of the cau
cus, to have named a more representa
tive committee, or one that would have
contained more political shrewdness.
The republicans in the senate will de
bate the Cleveland tariff bill long
enough to show up its general absurdity
and viciousness, bnt they will not resort
to dilatory tactics to prevent a vote. If,
after the bill has been thoroughly shown
up, the democrats are willing to assume
the responsibility of making it a law, no
illegitimate obstacles will be raised by
republicans. The republican party has
from its birth been thoroughly com
mitted to the doctrine of majority rule
and it will not change because the poli
tics of the majority has changed. That
would be imitating the democrats.
Petitions are already coming to con
gress in large numbers from old Union
soldiers asking that Secretary Hoke
Smith's high-handed method of dealing
with pensioners be investigated. Wheth
er any investigation is ordered or not
there's going to be some speeches made
on the subject in both house and senate
that will not please the administration,
and some of them are going to be made
The bronze statue donated by the
state of Illinois, for statuary hall, in

formally accepted by congress and un

Wednesday afternoon, the principal ad
dress being made by rov. Altgeld.
It is said that orders have been given
by the democratic boss to shut out
Oklahomb when it comes to admitting
new states, because of the belief that it
is republican. Arizona, New Mexico
and Utah are to be admitted on the
pledges made by prominent democrats
that they will all elect democratic legis
latures. Six administration democratic
senators are not to be sneezed at in the
present condition of the senate.
It is stated by democrats that the ad
ministration has become alarmed at the
almost unanimous public sentiment
against it and flunked on its Hawaian
programme, and that Mr. Cleveland
will send t rpecial message to congress.
together with all the correspondence,
etc., and ask congress to relieve him of
further responsibility by deciding what
shall be done. From the same source
the statement that the revenue cutter
which secretly left San Francisco for
Honolulu this week carried a letter to
Minister Willis revoking his previous in
structions and telling him to do nothing
until congress expresses its wishes. If
this be true it ends all the royal non
sense, for U certain that there are not
a score of men in congress who will vote
for the restoration of the queen.
Two Murder flanfftd.
Danvili-e, III., Dec. 8. Harvey Pate
and Frank Stires were successfully ex

The crime for which they paid the
penalty was committed August 25, last.
They, with Elios McJunken and
Charles Smoot, all young men, ranging
from 17 to 21 years of age, were readers
oi trashy literature, and Pate had passed
two years among the cow boys of Texas.
They waylaid Henry Houmick, a wealthy
farmer, and wife on the country road.
When ordered to stop, Houmick struck
the horse with a whip and Pate shot
him dead. Stires and Pate were sen
tenced to death, the others, being the
youngest of the party, to imprisonment.
There were two attempts to lynch them.
They professed repentance and were

The Outrage Has Greatly Strengthened

Equador and Peru.
Paris, Dec. 11. The excitement re
sulting from the throwing of the bomb
in the chamber of deputies Saturday has
somewhat subsided, and the people are
now looking to the chamber to enact
measures to stamp out the reds. Pre
vious to this outrage the union of social
ists and anarchists was strong enough
in the chamber to overthrow onegovern
ment, and they were confident of being
able to do the' same with the existing
government; but Vaillant's dastardly
performance seems to have greatly
strengthened the hands of the govern
ment, and put it in a position to make
an effective fight against the anarchists.
It is believed this act, which has sent
chills chasing up and down the spine of
every monarch of Europe, will result in
joint action by France, England, Spain,
Italy and Austria for the extradition and
severe punishment of all proved to have
engaged in anarchistic conspiracies. It
is also expected measures will bp in
troduced in the chamber of deputies for
the punishment of those who advocate
or defend crime in newspapers, or
punishing with severity tlie unlawful
posteesion of explos'rves.
Vaillant still defiantly professes to
glory in his act, and declares he has no
accomplices, hut this the police do not
believe, and are at work on clues look
ing to the arrest of others in connection
with the affair. It is believed Vaillant
will be speedily tried and executed. It
appears that Marchal, the name which
he first gave, is the name of his mistress,
whom he enticed away from her hus
band, having deserted bis wife in
America and come to France lust Janu
ary. He went to board at Marchal's
house. Madam Marchal has told the
police the story of how he succeeded in
separating her from her husband, and
made her work from morning till night
to support him, and he ubuted her
terribly when she no longer had money

Senators Hoar and Gray had an ani
mated war of words in the senate yester
day as to Cleveland e Hawaiian policy.
In the courso of his speech Hoar said,
that when it was known the president's
message had been published in London
in the morning papers in advance of its
delivery to congress, it was supposed to
be one of those accidents for which no
body was especially responsible, but no
such explanation could be made in this
case. Hoar said he desired the Hawaiian
question separated from all questions in
regard to which the parties were divided.
The Hawaian Gazette of Nov. 24th
said: "In the meantime the monarchy
is not restored, and will not bo nolens
by the armed forces of the United
States, whose forces must then continue
to support the ex -queen. There m:iy be
small differences in the ranks of tlie
party of reform, but we are today more
united and determined on the main is
sue than ever before. Let every reformer
put aside all other and minor thing, for
as surely as there is an Eternal Justice
overruling the affairs of men, so surely
will the gross outrage proposed to bo
done to Hawaii fail of its purpose.''
