letter to Representative Catching of
Mississippi, who consented to It pub

Kxecutlv Mrtlttlv.m Washington,
Hon. T. C Catching, my dear sir:
Since the conversation i hat) with you
and Mr Clark, of Awl-am, a Rw
day g. 'it legard to my union uiuu
th tariff bill mw hetn m. 1 have
Kivvrt the subject full and most serl
ou eonlderatlou. The ivsult In, I am
more ettld than ever In my dot-rml
nation t allow th bill to become a
lw without my lnur.
When th formulation of legtsla
ttnu, which It wa hoped would rm
body democratic Idea lit tariff re
form, w lately entered upon by o.
nM. nothing wa runner rrom my
anticipation tbtn a result which
could nt promptly and enthumaul
lly endow. It I therefore, with
the teellng of utmost disappointment
that I submit to a denial of Uila prtv
tit Cn. ' ' '
1 do nut claim to be bttter than lh
Dimur of my rty nor do I whh to
avuM any reapunKiblllty, which, tn
aix-ount uf thu im i( thl law, 1
ought to bvar a mmtw of il-rno-crmtle

But thtr ar provlwtona In thla bill

tncea aurroundtd it In Ita latter aitxa
and Interfered with Ita final comti ac
tion. whlch ought not to b recognlxed
or located in democratic tariff reform
And yet, notwtthatandlnf all Ita
vice and all the had treatment It re
ceived at th band of prclnnled
frlenda. it preaenta it vaat improva
ment to diluting cotidttliinif. It will
c-rtnlnly lilitrri m.iny tariff burdena
that now rent heavily uimn th peo

the return of bad prttectlon but It
furnluhe vantaire ttrouml from which

thing to do with the cause of the
strike. When the rush was over
prices got down to bed-rock and men
Mr. Wl'ckes said the amount of back
rent duo the company from strikers
was $100,000, No eviction had been
made and there hud been no orders
for eviction. Very little effort had
been made to collect the rent. He de
nied that tho Pullman employe were
compelled to rent the company s
dwelling. The witness was questioned
as to the salaries paid to oiflcers of
the company, but declined to answer.
Ho said the cost to the company of
building cars under contract at the
time of the strike was about 81,400,000,
The labor would cont about $240,000,
The contracts were taken on the basis
of a reduction of 20 per cent. Thus
under the old prices the labor would
have coHt ubout $340,000. Wlckes ad
mitted that on this basis the company
had reduced the receipts $63,000 and
the employes' wages $00,000. This, the
vice president suld, looked hardly
fair, but he thought It much better
thun to throw men entirely out of em
ployment. In answer to the chair
man, Wlckes said the cut in pay had
boen made to fit the depression In
business und In the low selling prices
of cars, and not to slop any encrouch
ment on the profits paid stockholders.
The surplus of $25,000,000 undivided
profits conslHted partly of Idle cars
whose value was constantly deteriorat
ing.' The cost of the cars was counted
in the surplus, so there was to some
extent a fiction in the figure of tho
General Nelson A, Miles took the
stand after lunch. He denied flatly
the story that on his arrival herefrom
Washington he consulted iwlth I the
general managers, Asked If it wr
true that he declared that he had
broken the backbone of the strike, the
general said, what he had said was
that he had broken the backbone of
the opposition to federal troops.

GREAT FI OF 1845
A Pioneer's Account of
the Big Blaze.

A Jifstnwa Chief Quotetl-Tbe First
Wliit8 lie Haw Came In a
A trip through the Coast Rang
mountain reveal to th eye of th
traveler a vast expanse of dead tim
ber, whose tall charred trunks ar the
sepulchral statues of a once green and
luxuriant forest. The fire that devas
tated so much valuable timber on both
sides of the Willamette river occurred
In 1845. The summer of that year was
exceptionally dry. and the trees and
underbrush burned Ilka tinder.
While at Wood recently, says the
editor of th bherldan Sun, we met
Peter Belleque, a fisherman, whowaa
born on French prairie In 1836, of
French parent. Th writer found Mr.
Bollequ a ready racconteur of pioneer
events, who among other things threw
light upon the origin of the great for
est conflagration of IMS not hitherto
In th fall of 1845, "Nigger John
on," a rook, who dterted from an
English man-of-war, at the mouth
of the Columbia a few year previous,
set fir to slashing on a ranch upon
which he had "squatted," near Cham
poeg In what I now Manon county.
Johnson succeeded in getting a good
burn on hi rlsshing, but unfortunate
ly for the forests, th fir spread in
all directions. On th east side of the
Willamette It sw.pt a path through
th valley a black as midnight
Reaching the mountain It mowed a
terrible swath through th Cascades
clear to thte summit. Crossing the
Willamette, It bluted out a path
through the valley to the Coast range.
the principal trail being confined, how
ever to th mountain ranges. A hot.
dry wind fanned It day and night.
and the whole valley was tilled with a
pall of smoke. So densj did the smoke
become that the settler were forced
to eat their midday meal by candle
light. Travel was largely discontin
ued, Navigation off the Oregon coast
became dangerous, and ships lay at
the mouth of the Columbia for weeks
waiting for the fearful clouj of smoke
leave. Many of the settler be
came apprehensive that the end of the
world was at hand. Streams flowed
red with lye and ashes, and many
water course of no small size became
itagnant pools, or dried up altogether.
Mr. Belleque, some years ago, Inter
viewed old Dick Harna, now on the
Slice reservation, about the fire In
Tillamook county. Harna wa chief
of the Nestucca. a small tribe of In
dians who lived along the coast at the
time. Harna, according to Belleque,
gave a.yvld description of the fire, as
witnessed by himself. He and a por
tion of hi tribe were encamped on the
Big Nestucca river about four mile
from the present site of the town of
Woods. For several days, according
to the Indl. rs, there had been a great
deal of smoke, Each day It grew
denser, and filled the Indians with no
little alarm. Finally, one night, the
Nestuccas were awakened by a bright
red glare In the Eastern sky which
grew more and more brilliant. By
sunrise, great flames were seen leaping
skyward from the summits of the hills
and the air was resonant with a roar
hundred time louder than the noise
if the surf on the ocean beach. Nearer
und nearer came the fierce sea of
flame. So rapidly did It approach that
the terrified Indians had no time to
remove their scanty belongings, but
hastily Jumping Into their dugouts,.
paddled down the river to the ocean
beach with all possible speed. Be
tween Mr. Malaney's ranch and the
ocean below Woods, the Nestucca
makes an angle and between the river
and the ocean' beach there Is, at Its
greatest width, a bare sand spit of
half a mile. Here, Harna and his
braves took refuge and subsisted upon
.1h for some weeks until a heavy rain
put out the fire.
All that remained of the vast forests
fir and spruce and larch were
blackened trunks that reared their
seared form heavenward as If In
mourning for their loss of verdure and
foliage. Paddling up the river to their
old haunts, gruesome sights met the
es of the Indians at every turn. Here
and there piled up in' groups were
hands of elk and deer charred crisp;
bear were found neatly barbecued;
and panthers, with their bodies still
the water, showed their ghastly
coked heads denuded of every hair,
nd sightless before death came.
Another band of Indians retreated
before the flames to Sand Lake be
tween Cape Klwnnda and Lookout
where they found a safe asylum until
the welcome rain came. Luckily,
there were no white settlers in Tilla
mook at that time. The fallen debris
previous to the fire was undoubtedly
the accumulation of a century. In
many places, young growths of fir are
springing up on the mountains, while
the water courses are fringed with a
dense growth of nltler. But it will
take another century to replace the wholly obaouring; the sun. and en
grand forests in the line of the great dangertng navigation.
