there is not a coolie on the coast who
could not teach him better manners.
The president was attending to his busi
ness in the premises, and rennoyer sim
ply behaved like a hoodlum. Voters do
not always understand the importance
of having a gentleman as well as an
honest and intelligent man in high of
fice. If they don't take care that their
choice is a gentleman, as well as what
ever else he ought to be, they run the
risk of being put to blush, as the people
of Oregon were.

secretary of state, will be more caroful
about suggestions to sovereign states,
especially to Oregon . If, in the course
of human events, it becoms necessary
or desirable to bint to a governor, es
pecially to Fennoyer, that some emer
gency is likely to arise, say, for example,
that the weather forebodes rain, and it
might be wise for him to take his
chimney in, they will be careful to
ascertain how his digestion is befoie

as not to permit the governor to make

ate ellorta to htop the train were xbown
by the large amount of hand thrown by
him on the bridge through which the
train came jut before the fatal craflh.
Amid a vigorous whirling' for brakes,
tiie engine daithed out of the bridge over
the Wabaah river at a xpeed of not lene
than aixty mile an hour, cranhing into
the depot buildings, tearing fiff" a portion
and carrying the train sheds several
hundred feet. The engine when it left
the track was followed by the baggage
car, two postal-cars and an expresa-car,
which were viled in one promiscous
mass, a total and complete wreck,
burying a score or more of victims in an
awful pile of debt is. The chair-car and
two pullman sleepers remained on the
track. To add to the consternation fire
broke out from a stove in the baggage
car, but the fire department speedly ex
tinguished the flames. A large crowd
guthered quickly at the scene of disaster
and assiHted in rescuing the victims, and
a large force of local physicians gave
the iieceaaary attention to the wounded.
Several victims of the wreck were
ersons standing on the platform wait
ing to take the train.

TuI'kka, Kan., May 6 John W. Mof
Gtt, who is responsible for the boodle
charges made v the Topeka Capital
against the state administration, and
who is dodging the investigating com
mittee, appeared before that body today.
He admitted he had no personal knowl
edge of the charges and confessed bis en
tire knowledge w as based upon a conver
sation which he claims to have over
houses together, but tie said nothing
about any other boodle. Moftiit also
told the story to several friends, among
whom was Major Hudson, of the Capi
tal. He was surprised to see the story
in print next morning, and said it con
tained some inaccuracies. Cross-exam
ined.Mullitt admitted that although Lew-
elling was his personal friend, he made
no effort to verify the slander told by
two strangers before he repeated it to
others. He had not attempted to find
nor identify the strangers, and hadn't
seen them since. After this testimony,
the committee adjourned sine die.

seized at the railroad depot and found to
contain several hundred dollars' worth

arrested and held to bail to await action

prison property is still missing. Several

that the superintendent told told them
to take it.
Advocates Ilrii'k Paring.
A. B. Chase, a prominent citizen of
Tacoma, has returned home after an ex
tended eastern trip, an enthusiastic ad
vocate of vitrified brick for street paving
puaposes. Mr. Chase visited, Washing-
(ton D. C, Baltimore, Cleveland, and
Detroit, and lnveHtigtd the paving prob-
lorn In each of thoae citiea. As a renult
ot bis observation Mr. Chase's former
views undor-went conaiderable moli(tca
ti n, and he is now poititive that vitrified
brck is the bent and most desirable pave
merit. A long interview with Mr. Chasa
on this subject was published In the Led
iier last week. In it be states that in
Washington. D. C, Cleveland and De
troit, exricriments on a more or less ex
tensive scale have recently been made
in the use of vitrified brirk, and the re
sult in every instance Las been entirely
satisfactory. It is true that none "f
these experiments extend over a much
I greater period than two years, but In
that time there has been no unfavorable
I feature developed. In Detroit Mr. Caa
saw specimens of this pavement in the
leading bnsineas street in front of the
city hall. Everybody semed delighted
with it. There was no complaint what
ever, so far as he was able to learn, from
anybody. In the very important matter
of cost he gave some interesting facts
and figures. In Cleveland the contract
tor's price, com plele, was 12.17 per square
yard ; in Detroit it was $2.10. The brick
used in Detroit ate manufactured in Cin
cinnati, and cost $11 per thousand. The
cost of the ashpalt pavements laid in
Cleveland has been $3 47 per square yard,
and in Detroit $2 44. In speaking of the
ail vantages of brick pavements over oth
ers, Mr. Chase remarked that they are
many. In the first place they are highly
recommended in a sanitary sense, being
very cleanly. After being laid the seams
are filled with coal tar, and laterlv a still
further improvemen has been made by
smearing the entire surface of the pave
ment with this material, loose sand being
thrown and ground into the tar, making
a cushion on top. In the course of traf
fic the sharp edges of the bricks worn off,
making grooves quite large enough to
afford horses a sure footing. The pave
ment is said to be practically coiseless.
Another important advantage is claim
ed for it In t' e fact that this pavement is
as well suited to hill streets as to level
ones, in addition to which is the ease
with which it is reiired or pieced. The
brick, he says, may be either vitrified or
the ordinary common brick, for it is a
fact that those of the latter class have
been very successfully on a two years'
test, though the vitrified ate unquestion

Depew, died at her residence in this

Although Mrs. Depew was known to be
seriously ill, the sudden termination of
her illness was not expected by her
family and those who were most inti
mately connected with her. Her con

Saturday, and early this morning a turn
for the worse came. Mr, Depew and
his son Chauncey, jr., Mrs. Depew'a

German Army Bill Defeated.
Bkrlin, May 6. The army bill was
