RIOT IN REISCHSRATH.
President of the House Assaulted by
VIENNA, April 9. The vote on the edu
catioral bill in the lower house of the
Reichsrath today precipitated a riot be
tween the Czechs and German Radicals.
There was a noisy demonstration, lasting
half an hour, resulting in the sitting be
When the President of the Reichsrath
tried to calm the house the Pan-German
Deputies stormed his platform. Deputy
Lindner brandished a stick at the Presi
dent's head, and, seizing hie bell, threw
it to the celling. The President narrowly
escaped being struck by the bell as it
fell. Other Deputies flung paper pellets in
the President's face and otherwise abused
him. The Ministers were holding a coun
cil in another room, and were, therefore,
absent from the chamber when the disor
II SLATE FIXED
But Democrats Are for
OTHER OFFICES UNCERTAIN
Caucus Meets to Consider
TO IGNORE SILVER QUESTION
Nntlonnl Issues Will Be Slighted
Convention Today Will Declare tor
Initiative and Referendum and
Radical Control of Trusts.
The Democratic State Convention -will
be called to order at 11 o'clock today
bjr Chairman Samuel White, of the
State Central Committee. The chair
man, temporary and permanent, -will
probably be A- D. Stillman, of Pendle
ton. No programme has been prepared,
and the usual order of business will be
followed. The nomination of George E.
Chamberlain for Governor Is conceded.
The state platform will Ignore the sil
ver question and National Issues.
The nomination of George E. Chamber
lain for Governor is the only certainty
about the Democratic state convention,
which will be called to order in Hibernian
Hall at 11 o'clock today. No platform
has been agreed upon, and there is no
slate of candidates. A caucus of all the
delegates now in the city was held last
night, but a general Informal discussion
of some of the planks In the platform
was the extent of the proceedings. E. R.
Skipworth, of Eugene, presided at the
caucus. While there were a few who ad
vocated a scuttling policy In the Phillo-
plnes, by far the greater number of speak
ers favored retaining the Islands and
tretins Jnem as an American , territory.
make possible, and abolition of air cus
toms upon goods shipped from the isl
ands to America will be demanded.
The Democrats will crowd National
questions to a minor position, and make
state affairs the paramount Issue. Legis
lative economy, reform in the manage
ment of state land business, and flat sal
aries for state officers will be the Demo
cratic watchwords. These are the planks
that have been conjured up as vote-catchers
by the leaders who will have a hand
in shaping party policies In the conven
tion today. That the platform will prac
tically Ignore the silver question and de
clare in favor of the initiative and refer
endum, election of Senators by vote of
the people, and radical measures for con
trol of the trusts Is a foregone conclusion.
When the caucus adjourned last even
ing, not even a chairman for today's con
vention had been selected. State Chair
man Sam White will call the convention
to order, and the probabilities are that A.
D. Stillman, of Pendleton, will be chosen
temporary and permanent chairman.
There was some talk of E. R. Skipworth
for temporary chairman, but tho leaders
seem to think Stillman will be the presid
ing officer. Some bright young man from
the floor of the convention will be chosen
secretary, but no names are yet men
tioned. So far as securing candidates for state
offices below the Governorship is con
cerned, the Democrats are in the same
frame of mind as the old maid who prayed
for a husband. When an owl in tho
branches of a near-by tree exclaimed:
"Who? Who?" she replied: "Almost any
body. Lord, will do." While the Demo
cratic convention will endeavor to put up
the best ticket they can, the delegates
will be compelled to take the candidates
they can get, and not the ones they would
like. Men who go upon the ticket feel
that they are doing so as a personal sac
rifice. From Governor down to State
Printer there is a feeling that the Demo
cratic nominee is taking a nomination
which is likely to prove an empty honor.
The eve before a Democratic state con
vention was never more quiet than last
evening. Fully half the delegates did not
arrive until the late trains came in, and
they gathered in groups in the hotel lob
bies and talked everything but the make
up of a ticket. Whether Chamberlain can
come within sight of Furnish was specu
lated upon at length, and no one seemed
to be anxious to find candidates to go on
the ticket with the Democratic champion.
Late in the evening W. J. Furnish ap
peared in the lobby of the Imperial Hotel
and chatted for a few moments with
friends. Democrats who had never seen
him before gazed at him with open-eyed
wonder, and one old war-hourse remarked:
Til tell you what, he's the foxiest poli
tician that ever hit this town. A man
that can get a nomination with as big a
majority as he did Is smart enough to
DEMOCRATS HERE IN NUMBERS.
Come From All Over the State to At
The Democrats are having their inning
at the strenuous game of state politics,
and yesterday found many of the old war
horses, and a few young colts, too,
bunched around the lobbies of the vari
ous hotels. Some of them had been in
the city for several days, getting ready
lor the state convention, which meets this
morning, but the majority of the delegates
came in yesterday, and many, Indeed,
were the handshakes and greetings that
were passed around. Lark Bllyeu, of Lane
County, was one of the early birds, and
he managed to keep all the hearers of his
many anecdotes In a happy frame of mind
from early morning until sunset. Story
telling is a characteristic of the Bllyeus,
and the Lane County champion amused
all who came within earshot. Then there
were others besides Bllyeu. "Bob"
Thompson was a familiar figure around
the hotel corridors. "Pete" D'Arcy, of
Marlon; "Bud" McAlister. of Union, and
His Former Excellency, Sylvester Pen
noyer, floated in and out. The old cham
pion, "Pat" Powers, was on 'hand, with
his cane, and "Billy" Holmes, who came
down from Salem on the early train, was
another conspicuous figure.
The crowd around the hotels was not
as large as was the Republican throng of
a week ago, but it was a good Democratic
crowd Just the same, and the advocates
of Jeffersonlan principles bustled in and
out, dodged the newspaper artist, or pre
tended to, and "saw" each other after
the fashion of all other politicians. The
evening trains brought more Democrats,
among them being Colonel E. R. Skip
worth, of Lane County; State Senator J.
W. Morrow, of Morrow; State Senator
William Smith, of Baker; Colonel "Bob"
Miller, of Clackamas, and Judge W. S.
McFadden, of Benton. These gentlemen
were accompanied by other delegates, and
various members of the Democratic con
stituency throughout the state swelled the
throng. Lon Cleaver and C. W. Fulton

WASHINGTON, April 9. The Senate

to tho extent of $400,000 additional, mak
ing an expenditure of about $614,000.
The Senate committee, unlike the House,
was readily convinced that Captain Harts'
estimate is not too high, and says that
the Improvement Is one of such import
ance that it should be no longer delayed.
The amount carried by the Senate bill is
sufficient to continue the work until the
next river and harbor bill is passed, and
if it Is not possible at this time to have
tho work placed under the continuing con
tract system, it Is probable this can be
done two years hence, when the work has
got well under way. There Is reason to
believe that the Senate amendment will
be retained in the bill, although It may bo
necessary to make a slight reduction In
the expenditure authorized.
Senator Turner has secured an Increase
) in the Appropriation for the Snake River
to $40,000, of which 525,000 is to be ex
pended above Lcwlston. For Pend
d'Orcille and the Okanogan he secured an
Increase from 510,000 to $25,000. The Ta
coma harbor appropriation was Increased
from 575.000 to $300,000. New Whatcom
gets $10,000 Instead of $25,000 allowed by
the House. Tho appropriation for Puget
Sound is increased from $15,000 to 520.000,
with $15,000 additional for the removal of
a log Jam in the Nookeack. The appro
priation for the mouth of the Columbia
remains the same as in the House bill.
MAIL DELIVERY AT ALBANY.
Postal Department Will Investigate
That City's Claim for Service.
WASHINGTON, April 9. Representative
Tongue today conferred with the Postmaster-General
with a view to having free
J delivery mall service at Albany. He
called attention to the fact that the pos
tal receipts at that office for the year
ended March 31 exceeded $10,000. The de
partment said Its computations were made
j on the fiscal year ending June 20, and If
the returns of the Albany office for tne
J current year exceed $10,000, the service will
be established. If other requirements are
' fulfilled. In the meantime the depart-
I ment will Investigate, to see if the streets
are properly named and the houses num
bered, so that the service can be put into
effect promptly on July 1.
Time Limit Extended.
Representative Moody today favorably
reported the Senate bill extending until
February 23. 1S05, the time for completing
the Clearwater Valley Railroad across the
fuez .rerces inaian reservation in Idaho.
A Grant to the State of Idaho.
The House public lands committee today
ordered a favorable report on the bill
granting a small tract on the Fort Hall
' Indian reservation, containing, hot mineral
springs, to the State of Idaho.
The Senate committee on public lands
has recommended that the nomination of
John F. Yost for Register of the Coeur
d'Alene land office, Idaho, be confirmed.
The charges on which the case has been
held up were not sustained.
YOUNG MEN NEEDED.
"Dendivood" in the Army Hampers
WASHINGTON, April 9. If the Admin
istration cannot secure young men for
j places of command In the Army, because
of the Senate's action In refusing to con
firm Crozier and Its disposition to treat
other appointments in a similar manner,
the old men who are now In line for
promotion will have to work or be re
tired. It Is the purpose of the depart
ment to do away with the "deadwood"
and to place old men where they were In
tended to go ny the law on the retired
The first step In that direction since the
action of the Senate committee on Crozier
is the retirement of Coionel Kimball, in
the Quartermaster Department. Kimball
has been working hard for promotion to
the head of the bureau, and ue has a
very strong political pull; In fact, so
strong that It was thought he might have
succeeded, but his retirement will end
that, and probably the next Quartermaster-General
will be some man appointed
on his merits.
AFRADD OF RECIPROCITY.
Its Adversaries Fear It Would Lead
to Tariff Redaction.
WASHINGTON, April 9. The strong
argument which the opponents of Cuban
reciprocity make is that it Is the entering
wedge to tariff reduction. They harp upon
that theme as If, It was a crime unspeak
able to move anywhere in the direction of
a reduction of the tariff. That Insistence
upon these lines Is shaking some of the
protectionists is true, especially as it Is
coupled with the threat to strike out the
differential on refined sugar. There Is a
bare possibility that enough beet-sugar
men will stand for the proposal to strike
out the differential, who. with the Demo
crats, would carry it. This would prob
ably mean the defeat of the reciprocity
scheme, as it would result in a serious
disagreement between the House and the
Senate. In the end, however. It Is more
than probable the Senate would win.
The beet-sugar men figure out that by
removing the differential, they cannot
be injured because of the difference in
freight rates, from the seaboard to where
their product Is manufactured.
"EMERGENCY" THE PLEA.
This Is the Bold-Fnccd Excuse for
WASHINGTON, April 9. There Is some
suggestion that the higher officials who
were responsible for lavish expenditure
in the transport service will be called
on to explain why the matter was allowed
to go on unchecked. Of course the claim
of "emergency" will be now, as It was
In regard to the purchase and charter of
transports and ships at the beginning of
the Spanish War, but these lavish ex
penditures, according to the report, ex
tended much beyond the "emergency"
period. Any apologist is compelled to
demand that more care should have been
exercised. It is said that the scandal Is
an argument In favor of Root's plan for
a general staff to oversee all such mat
ters. WESTERN STOCKMEN.

The President's Speech.
Mayer Smythe introduced President
Roosevelt, who spoke as follows:
"It is to me a peculiar privilege to
speak here In your beautiful city. My
mother's people were from Georgia; but
before they came to Georgia, before the
Revolution, Inhe days of colonial rule,
they dwelt for nearly a century In South
Carolina, and, therefore, I can claim your
state as mine by inheritance no less than
by stronger and nobler right which makes
each foot of American soil In a sense the
property of all Americans.
"Charleston Is not only a typical South
ern city: it Is also a city whose history
teems with events which link themselves
to American history as a whole. In the
early colonial days Charleston was the
outpost of our people against the Spaniard
in the South. In the days of the Revolu
tion there occurred here some of the
events which vitally affected the outcome
of the struggle for Independence and
which Impressed themselves most deeply
on the popular mind. It was here that
the tremendous, terrible drama of the
Civil War opened.
"With delicate and thoughtful courtesy
you originally asked me to come to this
exposition on the birthday of Abraham
Lincoln. The Invitation not only showed
a fine generosity and manliness in you,
my hosts, but it also emphasized what
