MADRID, Feb. 13. Music on the public
squares and a general holiday had been
arranged as today's programme of the As-turias-Bourbon
marriage festivities, but
all this has been abandoned on account-of
the attitude of the populace.
"With nightfall, every approach to the
Puerta del Sol was Jammed "with the
Idle populace. Insulting remarks were
hurled at the police and civil guards. A
trumpeter sounded a charge, which was
made with swords drawn. Heads were
not spared, many 'persons were injured,
and there were numerous arrests. The
scattering crowds sought the shops and
hotels. All the front doors of the Hotel
de Paris were smashed in, a great crowd
assembling there. The police and guards
charged Into the streets, but the dis
persed throngs quickly reassembled.
As was anticipated, the funeral of Don
Ramon de Campoamor, was attended with
serious disturbances. The weather was
beautiful and enormous crowds gathered
along the route taken by the funeral
cortege. Considerable disorder marked
the passage of the procession, but the
troops stood at strategic points and pre
vented any very formidable outbreak un
til the end of the city was reached. At
that point the demonstrators, who In
cluded many students, raised the cry of
"Long live liberty," and, having broken
up into small parties, proceeded to vari
ous parts of Madrid to renew the demon
stration. One band of students stoned a
In the evening fresh riots took place at
several points. Gendarmes charged with
drawn swords, and a number were wound

to the charges of the gendarmes with
showers of stones.
Altogether some 30 arrests were made
during the day. Including a military of

LOYALTY OF LOXDOX.
Address on Behalf of the City Pre
sented to the lvlng:.
LONDON, Feb. 13.-The Lord Mayor, the
Sheriffs and Aldermen, accompanied by
civic officers, sword-bearers, mace-bearers
and other attendants, proceeded In statu
carriages to St. James's Palace, today to
present to the King a loyal address on be
half of the City of London. The King and
the Duke of Cornwall and York, attended
by their suite, reached the palace short
ly after noon. The ceremonial is the
same as is observed at a levee. All the
principal officers of state were present.
His Majesty was received at the en
trance by the great officers of state, was
conducted to the throneroom and re
ceived the address. His Majesty varied
the customary procedure. Instead of
merely handing a reply, he read it In a
clear firm voice. It was as follows:
I am much gratified at your loyal and
beautiful addresses and the zeal and af
fection they testify for my throne and
person It is a great consolation to me,
in my grief, to know of the wide and
heartfelt sympathy to which you give ex
pression, and with you I will ever cherish
the recollection of the memorable reign
of my beloved mother, renowned In our
annals alike for 'the progress of the peo
ple In prosperity and refinement and for
their ever-widening and deepenlng'attach
ment to our government and its institu
tions. The ancient City of London, alike
illustrious by its history and by the ef
forts of its enterprising citizens, has ever
been foremost In responding to the call
of duty and in devotion to the interests of
the empire, and I feel certain its future
will not belle its glorious past. I humbly
join in your prayer that the blessings of
Almighty God may continue to myself and
my consort, and I confidently hope the
efforts I will make to fulfill the expecta
tions of my happy and loyal people will,
under divine guidance, promote the wel-
fare of my empire and the prosperity of
all classes of my subjects."
The King's reply to the address of the
London County Council was of similar
tenor, but also included reference to the
lmorovements of London. His Majesty
said- he was confident the London County
Council would not slacken its efforts to
deal with the many difficult questions,
"especially the proper housing of the
working classes, which is one In which I
have always taken the deepest personal
The hour fixed for the opening In state
tomorrow of the first Parliament of King
Edward "VTI is 2 o'clock In the afternoon.
King Edward, in pursuance of his general
purpose to inaugurate various changes in
the systems hitherto prevailing, has of
fered a departure from the ordinary prac
tice of giving out a forecast of the speech
from the throne at the opening of the
Parliament. Heretofore the text of such
speeches was practically known the night
before their delivery. This time, however,
the King Intends first to divulge the terms
of his epeech from the throne tomorrow,
"when he personally reads it.
Peeresses "Will Monopolize Sjiace.
LONDON, Feb. 1. The action of the
Lord Chamberlain In allowing peeresses
to monopolize all the space In the House
of Lords, to the exclusion of members of
the House of Commons, has caused much
Irritation. King Edward has himself taken
an active Interest in directing the arrange
ments, to the dismay of officials, and he
Is said to have acted pn the principle that
the courtesy to the ladies Is the mark of
a "perfect, gentle knight." Outlining
the probable subjects for mention in the
KIng6 speech, the Standard" says:
'"It may not be consonant with the spirit
of so auspicous an occasion to advert to
difficulties like the Nicaragua Canal and
the French shore questions. The prin
cipal topic will be a tribute to the memory
of Queen Victoria, the new civil list, the
South African war and army reforms."
Hiclcs-Beach's Borrowing Policy.
NEW YORK, Feb. 13. A dispatch to the
Tribune from London says:
The opening of Parliament will bring
public affairs once more within the range
of vision, and the ceremonial side of the
court will attract less attention than It
now receives. The financial base of the
exchequer will probably escape criticism
from the opposition bench, for Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach has followed the principles
of Mr. Gladstone and Sir William Vernon
Harcourt in his borrowing operations and
methods of financing a costly war. His
latest borrowing process Is not yet com
plete, but experts condemn It In advance
as petty and feeble. They contrast his
entire management of .national finances
during the war with Secretary Gage's con
duct of the American treasury during the
war with Spain.

EASTERN OREGON RESTIVE.
for a Chance
The Eastern Oregon Industrial School
and experiment station bill, which pro
poses locating such an institution of learn
ing on the,620 acres of land owned by the
state near Union, went down to defeat
In the House on Friday last.
The organized forces against the bill
were headed by the friends of the State
University, at Eugene and the Agricul
tural College, at Corvallis. These insti
tutions had their day in this session and
received additions to their large appro
priations. Now the young men and wo
men of Eastern Oregon can attend these
homes of culture If they have money
enough to pay the exorbitant expenses
Imposed by the university and college
for Incidentals and the like, but if not,
they can grow up in Ignorance.
That there will be a day of reckoning
none will dispute; that the day is set not
many years hence all will admit, and
when it does come, the university and the
college will find themselves stripped
and shorn clean of any aid from the
state funds. To the writer's certain knowl
edge the representatives from Eastern
Qregon who have come to the rescue to
save appropriations for these Willamette
colleges do not deserve the rebuke they
have Just received.
Now that we are in a mood for receiv
ing light, we would like to know what
benefits Eastern Oregon has had, In any
appropriations, save that of the purchase
of some good farming land for asylum
purposes, which passed the Legislature
In 1S93. Have not the people here the same
rights of a share of the benefits of their
state taxes as the Willamette Valley has?
Or must the support of webfoot Institu
tions of learning by Eastern Oregon
taxpayers be the animating principle in
the legislation of this state? These aids
for the Eugene University and Corvallis
College have not hitherto been made a
political factor, but are likely to become,
such In this part of the state.
SEND ME THEIR NAMES.
Thousands of Eastern people will take
advantage of the cheap rates to the
Northwest In effect every Tuesday from
February 12 to April 30.
They are the lowest In years.
If you have any friends who are talking
of coming West, send me their names and
I will have our representatives look them

A RAID AT WINRELD

Mrs. Xation Leaves Chicago, but
Says She Will Return and Mnke
WINFIELD, Kan., Feb. 13. A mob of
200 men and women raided Schmidt's sa
loon, the finest in the city, at an early
hour today. Some of them fired a half
dozen shots through the front door, that
started a general onslaught with rocks
and guns on the windows and doors.
Emma Denny received a pistol ball in her
face, and was slightly hurt. Although
this was an accident, it served to enrage
the mob, and" the crusaders swarmed into
the saloon. There they found Charles
and Henry Schmidt. After driving them
from the buildings through the rear door,
the mob created havoc right and left.
Cigar cases, mirrors and pictures were
smashed, and those that could not be
reached with axes were shot full of holes.
The mahogany bar was hacked to splin
ters, bottles were broken and barrel ends
knocked In. This was the work of but a
The Schmidts ran to the front door and
attempted to defend their property. Rev.
Charles Lowther prevented Charles
Schmidt from entering the place by strik
ing him with an ax. The blow was a
glancing one, and made only a scalp
wound. As he fell to the ground, Henry
Schmidt made a gun play in defense of
his brother that nearly cost him his life.
One of the crusaders, following up the
preacher's attack, had raised an ax to
strike Henry Schmidt, when a companion
wrested the weapon from his hands.
The greatest excitement followed the
raid, and for a time serious trouble
seemed likely, and the Mayor called a
special meeting of the Council to plan
means of quelling the disturbance and
providing aaglnst further outbreaks. To
night he decided that all Joints must close
Immediately. An attack on the other
joints Is expected before morning. The
jointists are defiant, and bl&odshed is

CHICAGO, Feb. 13. Mrs. Carrie Nation
left Chicago for Topeka tonight. She is
under bonds to appear in the Kansas cap
ital tomorrow for trial In connection with
the destruction of property in tha.t city.
Before leaving she announced that as
soon as she had "cleaned up things" at
home she would come back here, and if
things were not properly taken care of by
the authorities, she and her friends would
take matters in their own hands, and, to
use her own expressions, "We will make
Her meeting with the saloon-keepers,
which she had announced, did not mate
rialize, and, in default of having them for
an audience, she went once more to the
saloon In State street that she visited last
night. She delivered a talk to the people
she found there, a motley throng, em
bracing all classes. Mrs. Nation mounted
a table, and for 15 minutes talked with
great energy, urging her hearers to aban
don both the use and sale of liquor, and
denouncing in the most unmeasured terms
all those who permitted its sale.
Previous to calling at this saloon, she
had made a stop In a place at 56 State
street, owned by E. D. Dreyfus. The pro
prietor remarked that he was a relative
of Captain Dreyfus, of the French Army.
"How do you think that he would like
to see you in this business?" she asked.
The saloon-keeper replied that he was
making an honest living. This called down
a torrent of wrathful words, and after
Informing him that he was a "murderer,"
"devil's scullion," etc., Mrs. Nation de
parted. Tonight her meeting at Wlllard Hall
was attended b yabout 300 people, nearly
all of them temperance people, who ap
plauded everything that she said. Her
talk was not long, and in closing she de
clared that she did not want any hatch
ets used, and that she believed in peace
ful means of closing saloons as far as
"Now, I am going back home for a few
weeks," she declared, as she closed, "and

nothing and are willing to do nothing, we
will sea what is best to be done, and If it

"We will make some souvenirs, I tell you."
She departed, with the assertion that
the rum power In this city and other
places In the United States was tottering
to its fall. During the day she called at
the offices of Mayor Harrison and Chief
Klpley, but found neither official in.
To Strengthen Prohibition Lair.
TOPEKA, Kan.. Feb. 13. The State
Senate today passed a bill strengthening
the prohibitory law by making the pos
session of liquor evidence of guilt. It
provides that the finding of intoxicating
liquors in the possession of one not legal
ly authorized to sell the same, except in
a private dwelling-house, not connected
with a place of business, shall be prima

the finding of a place fitted with a bar
or counter or glasses or any parapher
nalia usually connected witu places where
Intoxicating liquors are sold, or In a place

Intoxicating Hqnors, or of a stamp show
ing the payment by any person of the
United States Internal revenue special tax
for the sale of liquors at such place for
a period not then expired, shall be prima

to whom the same was issued was main
taining a common nuisance at such place.

SPRINGFIELD, 111.. Feb. 13. A resolu
tion Inviting Mrs. Carrie Nation to ad
dress the House of Representatives was
introduced today by Representative Witt.
The reading of the resolution was re
ceived with laughter. "Let it be referred
to the committee on licenses," suggested
Mr. Mitchell. Speaker Sherman looked
over the resolution a few minutes and
then said: "Referred to the committee on
military affairs." Senator McKenzle
moved that the resolution be made a spe
cial order for February 27, and the motion
prevailed by a viva voce vote.

FOR FLOATING LIGHTSHIP.
Reason "Why Lovrest Kid. "Was Not
WASHINGTON, Feb. 9. The Lighthouse
Board, in awarding the contract for re
covering the Columbia River lightship
No. 50, and delivering the same at the
buoy station at Tongue Point, was not
altogether guided by the price named by
the respective bidders. It seems that a
large number of bids was submitted for
this work, ranging widely in amount. The
award was made to the firm, of A. Allen
and J. H. Roberts, of Portland, at 517.500.
This firm was not the lowest bidder,
but the time specified In which the work
was to be done 'was but 35 days, and was
decidedly the shortest period named by
any of the bidders. The board stated
that time was a very important factor,
and this, as much as the price itself, en
tered into consideration of the several
bids. A provision has been Inserted in
the contract with Allen & Roberts that
aflne of 5100 per day will be Imposed
for each day's delay after the 33 days
stipulated . In their bid for the comple
tion of the work.
SAW MILLS ON RESERVATIONS
Matter of Permits Being? Consider
ed at "Washington.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 9. One of the per
plexing questions which is just now being
agitated in the General Land Office, and
the Interior Department, is whether or
not the erection of saw mills In forest
reservations shall be permitted. There
are hundreds of applications on file for
the erection of such mills, but action has
been delayed, until the matter can be
thoroughly considered, and a definite de
cision reached. Were it not for the dan
ger or fires originating from these mills,
there is little question but that their erec
tion would be permitted in many instan
ces. The point has been raised by a large
number of parties who desire to cut the
mature timber In the forest reserves,
that they can not go Into the forests to
any considerable distance, and get the
timber out in log form, and at the same
time derive much of any profit from their
investment. Mature timber, of course,
has to be paid for according to volume,
and In order to get it out of the forests,
skid roads must he constructed in most
Instances. It is claimed that If the tim
ber could be sawed up, and brought out
as lumber, the cost of transportation
would be greatly reduced, and lumbering
on a profitable scale could be conducted
in the depths of the forests. Under the
present arrangement, the lumbermen
claim, they are of necessity compelled to
cut only the timber growing near the
boundaries of the reserves.
A number of applications for the con
struction of mills in the Cascade reserve
have been filed with the department, but
will have to take their course along with
all others. If, upon making a thorough
examination of the several designated lo
calities In this reserve, It Is found that lo
calities exist where mills can be erected
and operated without much danger from
fire, it is probable that a limited number
of permits may finally be issued. Of
course, such mills would have to be erec
ted in some of the open areas, where
there would be no danger of sparks fly
ing Into the trees, and starting a fire.
Even If these permits are finally Issued,
it is probable that very stringent regu
lations will be enforced," holding owners
and operators responsible for any forest
fires that may be traced to their mills.
DISPUTE OVER DEXTAL BILL.
Supporter Chnrgcd With Favoring
SALEM, Or., Feb. 13. House bill No.
36, regulating the practice of dentistry,
Is causing considerable comment among
the dentists. The main contention Is be
tween two factions of the profession.
The older class of practitioners are op
posed to the amendment to license all reg
ular graduates of colleges who belong to
the National Association of Dental Fac
ulties. The younger men are unanimous
In favor of the bill as it stands with the
amendment, asserting that without the
amendment the bill is unfair to them by
compelling persons "who are graduates of
recognized colleges to take an examina
tion of a state board, which has among
its members dentists who they assert
have never been Inside of a dental school.
The idea of compelling a man who Is a
regular graduate to be examined by a
body of men who are licensed because
they were In the state before any law
was enacted regulating the practice of
dentistry is objected to.
The bill without the amendment was.
It Is asserted, drawn up mainly by the
older men who are not graduates of any
college. These men, the advocates of the
amendment assert, fear the competition
of he younger men, who are graduates
of the dental departments of the great
universities of the East.
It is said that meetings have been held
to discuss ways and means to keep out
new-comers In the profession and It Is
charged that it is an injustice to a man
who has spent three or four years of his
time and money in securing a dental edu
cation to ask him to take an examination
before a board who can, If they desire,
be unfair to him.
The law, if passed as amended, gives
the regular graduate a chance to become
licensed without waiting for the semi
annual meetings of the board. As the bill
stands without the amendment, the reg
ular graduate must await the meeting
of the board and take his chances of
being "turned down.".
The purpose of a dental law Is to pro
tect the public from the uneducated and
unskilled dentists as they may Inflict life
long injury to the unsuspecting patient.
But the present bill, without the amend
ment, it Is asserted, goes so much farther
that it shuts out persons coming from
other states who are qualified to prac

Moore Companies May Become a
Part of the Morgnn Combination.
NEW YORK, Feb. 13.-Several Important
conferences on the Carnegie-Morgan steel
deal were held in this city today. No
official announcements were made, but
there was the usual stock of rumors. One
of these was to the effect that Presi
dent Schwab would certainly be made the
head of the new steel combination.
Perhaps the most authoritative state
ment given out was made by Judge D.
Reld, a leading factor In the so-called
"Moore Steel Companies," organized and
jjromoted by Judge Moore, formerly of
Chicago. Judge Reld Is the president oi
the American Tinplate Company and a
prominent man in the four allied com
panies the American Tinplate, the Amer
ican Steel Hoop, the American Sheet, and
the National Steel Companies. Represen
tatives of this group of companies met In
Judge Reld's office this afternoon to dis
cuss the offer which is said to have been
made for their stock by the representa

conclusion of the conference Judge Reld
practically Intimated that these corpora

Mayor "Will Xot Tolerate Gambling
in Any Form.
VANCOUVER, Wash., Feb. 13. "Gam
bling In any form or character will not
be tolerated longer in the City of Van
couver." So stated Mayor Johnston at
the special meeting of the City Council
last evening, and such was the substance
of a peremptory order given by him to
City Marshal Norton this morning.
The Mayor beseeched the Council last
night to give him its support in his re
form movement, but the members were
extremely reticent on the subject, and he
received but scant encouragement.
Not only are recognized gambling
houses to be closed, but under the in
structions of the Mayor the Marshal has
given notice to all persons Interested that
such things as "throwing dice" for drinks
or cigars, playing billiards, pool or cards
for checks or cigars, will be considered
a violation of the ordinance, and all per
sons are warned to discontinue such prac
tices. As a result the dlcebox has been
stored away upon a back shelf by Van
couver saloon and cigar men.
The Mayor's orders, so far as known,
are being strictly complied with by every
one, although the sentiment Is quite gen
eral that he has committed an error in
construing the anti-gambling ordinance
as covering the dicebox and card games
as ordinarily conducted In cigar stores
and clubrooms. For some unexplained
reason the Mayor has not Included Sun
day closing In any of his reform meas
sures so far, but it is expected that this
will be his next move.
Serious Charge Against Youth.
VANCOUVER, Wash., Feb. 13. Milo
Stevenson, a boy 15 years of age, pleaded
guilty in Justice McMasters Court today
to the charge of assault committed upon
Mabel Oliver, aged 11 years, and was held
in $500 bonds for his appearance in the
Superior Court. Young Stevenson's ar
rest and conviction Is the outgrowth of a
case against Charles Baker, aged 55 years,
brought by Superintendent Gardiner, of
the Boys' and Girls' Aid Society, of Port
land, In which young Stevenson was the
complaining witness. During the trial
the testimony of the little Oliver girl ex
onerated Baker, but incriminated Stev
enson. Both young Stevenson and Mabel
Oliver were former charges of the Boys'
and Girls' Aid Society, and found a
home at Baker's house, a few miles from
here, at Baker's application, some two
months ago. While the testimony ex
onerated Baker of the crime charjred,
there were circumstances indicating
strongly that he had been guilty on more
than one occasion of Improper familiarity
toward the child, and was consequently
considered an Improper person to be
longer entrusted with her care, and she
was taken back to the Home by Superin
tendent Gardiner. The Stevenson boy
will doubtless be sent to the State Reform
Co-operative Butcher Shop.
OREGON CITY, Feb. 13. The commit

fore the combine among the butchers was

lower prices than those on Main street.
