LOST IN 'ME HOUSE
The Teller Resolution Defeated
by a Decisive Majority.
The United NUtei Will Pay It Obliga

A Solid Delegation.
Wahiiinoton, Jen, 31. The house to
day buri:d the Teller resolution, declar
ing the bonde of the United States pay
able in silver, under an adverse majority
of 60 votes. The republicans were sol
idly arrayed in oppwition, wiih two ex

Voted with the democrats and populista,
and White of North Carolina, the only
colored member of the house, who an
swered "present" when his name waa
called. The desertions' Irom the demo
cratic side were McAleer of Pennsyl
vania, and Elliott of Houth Carolina.

tomary for him to vote, had bis name

The vote was reached after five hours
of debate, under a special order, adopted
at the opening of the session today.
The limited time allowed for debale,
and the pressure of members for an op
portunity to be heard, was so great that
the leaders on both sides were compelled
to farm out the time by minutes. This
detracted much Irom the continuity of
the dintuwtiou, but it in some meaeure
intensified the interest in the galleries,
which were crowded all day, and the
combatants on the floor were cheered by
their respeciive sympathizer. Many
of the senators frcn the other side of ibe
capitol were present to listen to the
The majority, under the leadership of
Dingley, who made a carefally prepared
speech sounded the key-note of the op
poeilion, assumed the position that the
hut clause of the resolution was in real
ity a dieguieed declaration for the tree
coinage of silver, while the assaulting
democrats, under the direction of Bailey,
maintained that the defeat of the reeo
l!t on waa another step in the direction
of the establishment of the gold standard,
to which he alleged both the president
and Secretary Gage bad irrevocably com
mitted the republican party.
The debate was at times fast and
heated, but there were uo sensational in
cidents, beyond the hissing of Khea,
when he said that as the author ot the
"crime of 73," the hotevt place in hades
would be reserved for the present secre
tary of (he stale.
The vote on the resolution was : Ayes.
131'; noes, 182.
Congressmen Ellis and Tongue voted
against the resolution, thereby leaving
no doubt as to where Oregon's congress
men stand in relation to the question of
Kqnal Right, for All.
Wasiiinotot, Jan. 31 Senator Car
ter has offered for the bill granting right
of way in Alaska an amendment
which reullirniB and continues the pre
sent mining regulations and offers the
following provision :
"Provided that native-born citizens of
the Dominion of Canada shall be ac
corded to citizens of the United Slates in
British Columbia and the Northwest ter
ritory by the laws and regulations, and
the secretary of the interior shall, from
time to time, promulgate and enforce
rules and regulations to carry this pro
vision into effect."

the explosion was heard throughout

plosion was Jesus del Monte, The door

in the house. The Diaz family and thoee
inhabiting the neighboring houses were
panic stricken. The bombthrower was
captured while attempting to escape.

TAMH1LL COim MUKDER.
Old Family Fend Ken u Its In a Fatal
Paul Ducleos, a farmer living 10 miles
southeast of McMinnville, waa shot and
instantly killed last Saturday morning by
Cleraraens, aged 20 years. The trouble
was the result of an old feud of long
standing. The coroner's jury exonerated
Clemmens on the ground of self defense.
Young Clemmens was put on the stand
before tbe coroneis jury and male tbe
following statement which is corroborated
by the neighbors :
"I had known Paul Ducleos in life. I
saw him alive this morning about 10
o'clock, and I know the cause of bis
death. I started to go bunting this
morning, going through the field to the
line between our place and that of Mr.
Mackey. I then went down the bill by
L. Baker's place. Here I saw Ducleo
approaching from the same direction
that I had come. When he was within
about 5i) yard , he began to abuse me,
and still came nearer, swearing and
threatening to kill me. When be waa
close to me he pulled off his gloves, or
mittens, and began to draw hi gun. I
tried to evade him, and said that I did
not want to have any trouble. Ducleo
kept coming, and then began to raise
hia gun. When be bad raised it to
about the range of my head, I fired."
The story seemed to show that Ducleos
did not intend to shoot Clemmens, but
was trying to intimidate him. Previous
to drawing the gun, which in of the ham'
merless pattern, he had slipped the
catch which holds the gun in readiness
to fire. As he drew the gun, be did it as
though he intended to kill Clemmens.
Clemmens raised his gun and fired to
saye bis life.
Trouble has existed between the Du
cleos and Clemmens families for a lonn
time, and it nearly reached a climax last
(all during harvest, when Clemmens and
his father and the two Ducleos boys came
near fighting. Since then the bitterness
has been more intense, and the Ducleos
boys have promiscuously threatened tbe
lives of the two Clemmens men. Du
cleos' gun was found by his side, in full
readiness for shooting.

the gold standard and protection on the
one side and free silver and free trade on
the other; therefore, be it

Steamship Corona, Ilottnd for
A large Amount of Freight and 247
Passenger Nafely Landed Strict
an Unknown Reef.
San Fbaxcibco. Jan. 29. Further
particular have been received of tbe
wreck of the Pacific coast steamship Co
rona on a reef at the southeast point of
Lewis inland, 480 mile north of Victoria,
ou Sunday, January 23.
The Corona sailed from Seattle with
247 passenger for Juneau, Dyea and
Skaguay, January 20. She carried a car
go of 700 ton, together with 10 horse
and 38 dog. At 5 :30 Sunday morning
the steamer suddenly crashed upon a
reef. Most of the passenger were np
awaiting the breakfast call, but a scene of
indescribable confusion followed. When
the steamer finally settled down, tbe
officer and crew succeeded in calming
the panic-ctricken passengers, and Cap
tain Pierce at once ordered the boats
lowered and the pump worked.
At 7:33 A. M. the first boat put off for
the nearest land, Lewis island. Seven
boats were manned and tbe passenger
were all landed in two trips without
The hand basrgage and that in the for
ward hold was then transferred and the
dogs and hoiscs saved. The mattresses
and blanket from the staterooms were
also landed for the accomodation of the
ship wrecked passengers.
About noon the steamer sank, stem
foremost, with ber bow hanging to tbe
rock on which she struck.
A severe storm which struck the camp
added to tbe horrors of the hapless pas
senger. The storm continued nntil
Wednesday night the steamer Danube
waa sighted, and answered a signal flared
from the point, and Captain Pierce
boarded ber in a canoe. Upon his re
turn, be conveyed the glad news that
the steamer Al-Ki and Elder were close
behind the Danube, and would relieve
them. The Danube proceeded south)
with news of tbe disaster. It was under
stood that one of the two vessels would
turn back to Fort Wrangel with such of
the passenger as desired to proceed to
the Northwest, while the other would
bring the remainder to Seattle.
Int.s.a H.at la AntrsUa-
Vascouveb, Jan. 31. The eteamer
Warimoo, just arrived from Australia,
brings new of the most appalling cli
matic conditions prevailing in many sec
tions of Australia. Prostrations from the
heat are so numerous that the condition
of affairs in the large cities was alarming.
In many instaoces work is out of the
question and sleep is impossible. Tele
grama show the same conditions prevail
all over the colony. The thermometer
during the day averages about 124 in the '
shade. In the sun it is 160.
News comes from all part; of Australia
of destruction by flames. It would ap
pear from the press reports that the total
damage will amount to 1,000,000. In
Victoria colony 100,000 acres have been
swept clean and enormous crops de
stroyed. In other colonies houses and
barns were burned.
The Modern Way
Commends itself to the well-informed, to

formerly done in the crudest manner and
disagreeably as well. To cleanse the
system and break up colds, headaches
and fever without unpleasant after ef
fects use the delightful liquid laxative
remedy, Syrup of Fig. Manufactured
by California Fig Syrup Co.
The Time to Spray.
Fruit grower have found by exper
ience that the best time to spray trees
for San Jose scale is during the months
of February and March, and no doubt
many of them will attend to caring for
their trees duiing the next two months.
A very strong solution of lime, sulphur
and salt can be applied now, before the
buds begin to swell, without injury to
the trees, but if put off until April or
May, a spray that is sufficiently strong
to destroy the scale, would prove very
injnrious to the foliage and fruit. Hence
now is the season of the year when the
orchardist should exert his greatest act
ivity if be would insure a good crop this
Bucklen'g Arnica Salve.
The best salve in the world for Cuts.
