SALEM, Feb. 18. The senatorial situ
ation tonight is practically unchanged, ex
cept for the activity manifested during the
day by the managers of the minority re
publican faction, and their holding con
sultation with the populists and demo
crats. They have apparently given up
hopes of breaking in upon Dolph's ranks,
and are using every possible expedient
to gain support from the other two par
ties. So far no success is manifest. The
populists uniformly declare they will keep
Jn the middle of the road, and decline to
accept any overtures from the bolting re
publicans. The democrats have mani
fested more interest in the senatorial con
test than the populists, and claims of
three democratic votes, In an emergency,
have been freely made for the antl-Dolph
faction. Of course, no such action would
be taken by them until enough more votes
were in sight to elect a senator, and the
other democrats would probably be ready
to offset such action by voting for Dolph,
in the Interest of the state and good gov
ernment. There is a general impression
on all sides that a deadlock-will be averted,
even if it is accomplished on ballots after
the first and regular one of the last day
of the session, which is likely to be Sat
urday. The Joint Session.

AVhat No Election Means.
WASHINGTON1. Feb. 13. (Oregonian
office, Corcoran building.) It will be a
berlous matter for the state of Oregon if
there Is no election of a senator. There is
no telling what the loss will be. Esti
mated by the damage that Washington,
Montana and Wyoming have sustained by
reason of failure to elect two years ago,
the damage will be considerable. The fact
is that any state without its full represen
tation in the senate is at a disadvantage.
It has not its full strength to trade on nor
lias It the votes necessary to secure needed
legislation. It has not Its just representa
tion on committees, and its interests must
Buffer. It is also true that one man cannot
be on hand all the time to attend to the
needs of the state and watch Its interests.
The constitution gave two senators to each
fotate, and It ought to have them. Oregon
and Idaho will make grave mistakes if
thoy are not represented in the senate by
From a party standpoint the case is
much more serious. It may possibly lose
four senators to the republicans after the
next campaign. The populists and demo
crats may control the legislature of both
t-tatcs as a result of present senatorial
deadlocks, in which case the republicans
would lose four senators, while if elections
wore to occur now It would mean two re
publicans sure for the next six years, and
possibly would also mean the election of
republican senators two years hence.
This, phase of the matter has been the
cause of serious forebodings among the
republicans of the senate, who fear that
the perversity of republicans in these
states may cost the party the control of
the next senate. It Is said by these lead
ers that the republicans in the state legis
latures of Oregon and Idaho, representing
the republican party of these states, owe
it to tha party that has done so much for
these states in the past, to send republican
senator to congress in order that the
party might regain control of the govern
ment in all Its branches and again bring
prosperity to the country. The leaders
here also assert that the minority and
factional republicans in the legislature
have no right to carry their opposition to
the desires of the majority to the extent
of disrupting their party at home and en
dangering the success of the party in na
It is hold that the law of nations and of
parties is that the majority should rule.
A phase of this matter which may not
occur to the men who are now preventing
the election of republican senators has
been discussed among republicans here.
The men in the different states who are
thwarting the action of the majority of
their party are being marked, and their
names will be kept in mind. When a re
publican president is elected, as Is sure to
be the case In ISM, there will be many ap.
potatntents made by him. Republican
senators wrtl make it their business to see
that no ai&n who either bolted caucus
action or prevented the majority of his
party front selecting a senator shall be
confirmed This stand has been so firmly
taken that it will soon be made manifest
that whatever fitness a man possess if he
has stood in the way of party success he
has severed his party affiliations, and
when his name is presented for an office
the republicans will make this a point
The eellng is runaing very high here
aga!at the men who will not allow repub
licans to be elected to the senate, at a
time when every vote is needed, and when
there will be sUH greater need of them a
few years hence, when republican legisla
tion Is needed.
Tlio Flub. Hill to Come Up In the
SALBar. Or., Feb. IS. The tight
over the fish bill will be carried
on on the floor of the house tomorrow
morning in the shape of majority and mi
nority reports of the committee, and a
substitute for Paxton's bill, the measure
commonly known as Steiwer's bilL The
bill agreed upon follows, on contested
points, theagreementof last Sunday's joint
conference with tfle Washington commit
tee at Portland; that Is, a close season
from March 1 to April 20. and from August
1 to October 3. Sunday closing has been
stricken out, and the fish commission is
left at three members. On these points
the senate and house standing fish com
mittees are understood to be agreed. The
majority of the joint standing committee,
that is, four out of eight, the chairman not
voting, decided to strike out the last three
sections of the substitute bill. These three
are those providing, first, for the abolish
ment of traps after two years; second, the
prevention of building of wheels, and,
third, the prohibition of possession of fish
weighing less than nine pounds. The mi
nority are opposed to striking out these
three sections, and will resist the action
of the majority on the floor.
The only fight made on Senator Gowan's
bill was with reference to provisions con
cerning the armories, which were subse
quently amended to meet objections. The
bill failed to pass by one vote, receiving
only 15. McGinn gave notice of a motion
to reconsider, and the bill, which enacts a
new military code without enacting or re
pealing appropriations, may yet be passed.
The bill of Gesner, which the senate
passed this afternoon, appropriates 515,000
for a new sewer for the capitol, peniten
tiary, asylum, etc The state is now using
the Salem city mains, which are inade
quate to the needs of the buildings. The
bill provides that labor and material from
the penitentiary are to be used in the dis
cretion of the state board. If the convicts
build the sewer with brick from the peni
tentiary, avery large percentage of the ap
propriation can be returned unexpended.
Haley's medical examiner bill, passed by
the senate, provides for the creation of a
s:ate board, of five physicians three allo
paths, one eclectic, and one hoaieopath

Oregon insane asylum act and the bill

sition, while Hofer opposed the measure

FALSE EVIDENCE GXVEX AGAESST
James Chamberlain Tried for the
Larceny of a. Calf, Acquitted, and
Another Convicted Instead.
BAKER CITY, Feb. 18. A peculiar case
was entered in the circuit court today.
It was one in which a man by the name
of James Chamberlain, who lives on up
per Burnt river, in this county, was ac
cused of the larceny of a calf. The wit
nesses for the state, five in number, were
all relatives of the accused, and it was
shown by the defense that their testimony
was false beyond 'question and given for
the purpose of sending Chamberlain to
the penitentiary to get rid of him. The
case was submitted to the jury without
argument and they promptly rendered a
verdict of not guilty. It now turns out
that Harvey Lancaster and M. Yeagar
killed the calf and In the endeavor to mix
Chamberlain lip in the matter, convicted
themselves. Lancaster pleaded guilty
and was sentenced to serve 18 months In
Salem. It is expected that the grand
jury will find a bill against Yeager before
it adjourns. Yeager and Lancaster are
brothers-in-law to Chamberlain.
The grand jury has found true bills
against the Glngles boys for complicity
in the Warsaauer hotel robbery, which
occurred sometime in November last.
Emll Webber has also been Indicted for
aiding in the escape of prisoners.
Work on the Scorpion quartz mine near
the Virtue and owned by J. Knox and
others, has been .temporarily suspended.
The property is making a splendid show
ing. It is now demonstrated beyond a reason
able doubt that-the secret of working the
ore of the Eureka and Excelsior mine, has
been discovered at last, and there is now
not the least doubt about the property
being made a permanently paying proposi
tion. There are now something like 100
men employed by the company which is
being managed by Henry Longmaid, of
Salt Lake City.
The recent heavy fall of snow in the
adjacent mountains makes a profitable
placer season an assured fact. This
means that a great many thousands of
dollars in gold will find its way into cir
culation in this county during the early
spring and summer.
The creation of the eighth judicial dis
trict, comprising Baker, Union and Wal
lowa counties, makes the appointment of
another judge a Tiecessityi and it is quite
probable that H. A. Eakin, of Union, will
receive such appointment. A petition
asking for his selection was numerously
signed here today.
The Weiser Flouring Slills Company,
of Weiser, Idaho, is looking into the ad
visability of removing its plant to this
city. It is said that the proposition has
been favorably considered and that the
mill would be moved here if the citizens
will guarantee to buy the product of the
mill. There is no better point in the state
for the establishment of a flouring mill
than this. Powder river valley produces
more than enough -wheat to keep a 100
barrel mill running night and day, the
year round, and the products of the mill
will find ready sale In the adjacent min
ing camps and supply points.
Some of our legal lights expect a
branch term of the supreme court to be
held here by an act of the present legis
lature. Geographically considered, Baker
City is the prpperpiace for the holding of

section of Oregon."'

Death, of "William Allen Jack: at Butte
SrARQUASr, Feb. 18. The community
at Butte creek lost a very worthy citizen
by the death of William. Allen Jack, which
occurred February 10, 1895, at his home
near Slarquam, Clackamas county. Sir.
Jack had been feeble for several years
and his death was not unexpected, and
by him not unprepared for, as he had di
vided his farm among his children and
given them deeds some two years ago,
reserving to himself and wife life estates
In the land. Sir. Jack, though a pioneer
of 1S47, did not avail himself of the oppor
tunity offered by the donation land law.
His parents were aged and rather infirm
upon their arrival in the territory, and
needed the care and support of their
children, which was freely and self-deny-ingly
given. The reply of the father,
Jeremiah Jack, when asked him why his
sons, William and Robert, did not take
claims when that beautiful Butte creek
country was unoccupied, was:
"Oh! we could not bear to be separated.
Sly wife and I have taken a section, and
Porter has taken a half-section, and
don't you think that a section and
a half of land is enough for our three
boys?" The section and a half was all in
one body, lying on both sides of Butte
creek, including a large area of splendid
creek bottom, and the parents and the
three boys, William, Robert and Porter,'
lived in the same house. The father was
Irish and the mother was Scotch, but
it was a happy family. Differences of
opinion seemed to weld them more firm
In 1S53 the father desired to have run a
line dividing the section from the half
section, and passing through the house,
so that he could swear to a residence on his
section and Porter to a residence on his
half section. The problem was satisfac
torily solved and the requirements of the
land law fully obeyed.
William Jack's marriage to Sliss Slary
Jane Weddle January 5, 1834, was a for
tunate one, and unto them six children
were born. Barton, J. E., W. S., A. F.,
Nettie Albright and Susan Hook.
William Allen Jack was born August
2S, ISIS, near Sladlsonville. Slonroe coun
ty, East Tennessee, where he lived until
March. 1836, when his father and family,
consisting of wife, three sons and one
daughter, moved to Sedalia, Pettis county,
Sllssouri. Here they lived for 11 years,
when the family joined an emigrant train
bound for Oregon, which they reached
in October of the same year, 1S47. The
winter of that year the family lived near
Oregon City, and In the spring of 184S
moved to their claim on Butte creek. He
joined a company of volunteers enlisted
for the Cayuse war in Eastern Oregon,
bore unflinchingly every duty during that
rigorous winter and was one of the com
pany who buried the bleaching bones of
Dr. Whitman and family. Arriving home
late in the spring of 1S4S, he and his
brother set about preparing for a trip to
the California gold mines, which they
reached in the fall. But the hardships he
had undergone were beginning to tell upon
a constitution never strong, and sickness
continually interrupted the mining busi
ness. Despairing of success, he took pas
sage for Oregon on an old sailing vessel,
which made the trip in 21 days at a cost
of $126 for each passenger.
Mr. Jack became a member of the
Cumberland Presbyterian, church in 1S42.
Death of Albert Gaines.
Albert Gaines, a pioneer of 1S45, passed
oway on February 12 at the house of Col
onel George B. Currey, in Grant's Pass,
Or., aged S4. He was born in Virginia,
spent his early manhood in Champagne
county, O., and in 1S39 married Sarah
Barlow in Fulton county. I1L
They crossed the plains with the emi
gration of 1845 and were with the first
wagons that ever crossed the Cascade
mountains on what became widely known
as the Barlow road. They settled on the
Clackamas river for a time and then in
Marion county, where he was elected to
the first legislature. In 1S49 he crossed the
Willamette and took a donation claim, in
Yamhill county, where he spent most of
his life as a farmer. His wife preceded
him to the grave only a few months. He
was a relative of Slajor A. P. Gaines, for
merly governor of Oregon.
Two daughters and two sons survive"
him, namely: Mrs. W. V. RInehart. of
Seattle; Mrs. G. B. Currey, and S. L.
Gaines, of Grant's Pass, Or., and Frank
A. Gaines, of Biggs, Cal.

ment, and that the Union Pacific would be

Itween the Union Pacific and the Rio
Grande Weste.n as to Utah and Colorado
business. But the Union Pacific officials

versy, they say, over matters- which they
claim were settled lat week. Jnstead ot
feeling blue over th situation, it?s given
out at headquarters that they don't care
whether the Rio Grande Western becomes
a party to the trunk line committee or not.

protection they need to go ahead and do
what they have been doing for the past
20 years, permitting Pacific coast business
to stop at Salt Lake in transit, as the
class of tickets purchased indicated.
