these will receive diplomas at the close of
this Institution, and others at the general
commencement of the Willamette. Pro

change brought about In the service af.

Before the date named it was the custom
of the company to maintain joint agenclei
at many points, in connection with the
" various agencies of the Great Northern
Railway Company. That is to say, one
agent often combined the offices of rail.
Tray and express agent In himself. He
was visited at intervals both by the trav

the traveling auditor of the railway com

railway company, who will look after the
express company's interests in addition to
his other duties. Traveling auditors of
the express company retained in the serv

express ofilces only. This change relieved
quite a number of men from duty, but all
of these have been provided with as good,

The change does not affect offices of the

DOES CONSTITUTION FOLLOW
Of Coarse It Does, and President
Senator Spooner to a fair example of
the supporters. of the Puerto Rican tariff
in his floundering in the deep praters of
Constitutional construction. Does the Con
stitution follow the flag? be asks, and then
answers, certainly not. There is the flag
in Cuba, but the Constitution does not cov
er that Island, he says. On the contrary,
the Constitution Is there with the flag,
not over the'lsland, but certainly over the
American Army, which acts, even on for
eign soil, only under the authority con
ferred by the Constitution upon the Presi
dent as Commander-in-Chief. When the
flag leaves Cuba the Constitution wiU
come away with it, and eo It might from
Puerto Rico if the Congress so ordered,
instead of attempting to -legislate for the
civil government of that territory.
It is an old, well-established principle
that when martial law is proclaimed over
any territory, necessity is the only limit
ation. Even the Constitution is suspended,
except in its primal function of creating
the power to declare martial law. But
tho moment civil law resumes its sway the
Constitution becomes supreme. The treaty
of Paris did not carry the Constitution
over Puerto Rico or the Philippines any
more than over Cuba that is not beyond
tho authority for holding them under mar
tial law. Those territories may be given
independent government or ceded to an
other power. They are in the keeping of
tho President as Commander-in-Chief of
tho Army and Navy, subject to final dis
position by Congress.
Congress has the power to give tnem
independence as It has to give that boon
to Cuba, and it has tho power to annex
them to tho United States and give them
a system of civil government. If Con.
gross elects to take the latter course,
then those territories come under the Con
stitution as territories of the United States,
subject to its restrictions and entitled to
tho privileges and Immunities guaranteed
by It. Every power of Congress Is de
rived from that document, and that docu
ment provides that Congress shall odd
nethlng to or take nothing from It without
the consent of the people. The contention
of Senator Spooner and his friends Is equiv
alent to the assertion of the power of
Congress to pass and maintain laws that

The State Convention of tho People's
party will be held In Hlbcmla Hall at
10 A. M. next Thursday. W. R U"Ren.
of Oregon City, secretary of the State
Committee, come to town yesterday and
made arrangements for hiring the halL
The question of fusion will be prominent
in the proceedings. From present Indica
tions, the fcslonlsts will have a majority
of the delegates, tout they will not get
away with tho fight without a struggle
that will imperil the party as a. factor
in state politics. If Chairman Frank Will
lams, of the State Committee, has not
changed his mind In the past two months)
he will be one of the leaders of the op
position to fusion. Secretary URea also
Is against fusion, but he will not be a dele
gate to the convention.
It will be the aim of the dominant fac
tion to accept fusion with tho Democrats,
and court It; If necessary. The strongest
advocates for fusion are in Multnomah
County. Here the organization of the Peo.
pie's party is practically in the hands of
A. P. Nelson and Ernest Kroner. Nelson
sat In the Democratic County Convention
last Saturday as a delegate from the Fifth
Ward, and Kroner hobnobbed among the
delegates, calmly puffing cigars and look
ing wise. Up to date the Multnomah
County Populists have not elected dele
gates to the state convention, and there
are no indications that they will do so.
Tho Mlddle-of-the-Road Populists will
also hold their state convention In Port
land, April 12. They bolted fusion two
years ago, and put up a ticket of their
own. They are so bitterly opposed to fu
sion that at the meeting of their State
Committee at Salem. March 24, they adopt
ed a resolution forbidding discussion of the
question as being foreign to the princi
ples of their party. S. H. Holt, of Ash
land, It chairman of the committee. Re
plying to a question as to the course the
People's party should follow in the com
ing campaign, he writes:
"Owing to the peculiar conditions which
attend the People's party Just at this
time, I do not think It would be advisable
for me, as chairman of the Mlddle-of-the-Road
faction, to make any statement for
publication. I think the action of the
Democrats and a few mugwumps who
have posed as leaders In the People's party
fa rapidly opening the eyes of the honest
rank and fllo who were fooled by them
two and four years ago. A mass county
convention called by fusion Populists met
at Medford, April 3, and declared against
fusion on state and county tickets. The
course the Democrats are sure to take
at their state convention will be another
It is difficult to estimate tho numerical
strength of the Anti-Fusion Populists. It
comprises the 4797 votes cost for James K.
Sears for State Treasurer In 1S9S. and
about 23 per cent of the regular People's
party that is. the party which has Frank
Williams for chairman of its State Com
mittee. THE LATE MARINO ZAN.
Itejrret by the Chamber of Commerce
and manufacturers' Association.
M. Zan's death is greatly regretted by
tho members of tho Chamber of Com
merce. Ho wns an active member of that
organization, and was alwajs ready to
give his time and substantial aid to any
project that meant promotion of the city's
Interests. President Taylor said yester
day that Mr. Zan was a man of untiring
energy, who was never found wanting
when there was anything to be done for
Portland or Oregon. It is the desire of as
many of tho members as can to at
tend the funeral services at St. Mary's
Cathedral, at 9:30 tomorrow morning.
Tho Manufacturers' Association,' at a
meeting held yesterday morning, passed
the following resolutions:
"Resolved, That tho Manufacturers' As
sociation receives with deep sorrow the
announcement of the death of Mr. M. Zan,
Its honored president, and tenders, to the
family and relatives of the deceased the
assurance of Us heartfelt sympathy In
their sad bereavement; and
"Resolved, That these resolutions be
spread upon tho minutes of this associa
tion, and that the secretary be directed
to transmit to the family of Mr. Zan a
copy- of same; and further, that a copy
be also given to the dally press."
The executive committee of the Manu
facturers' Association decided to request
all members of tho association to attend
the funeral as an organization. Members
are requested to meet at the Cathedral at
9 o'clock Monday morning.
C H. Mclsaac. secretary of the Manu
facturers Association, pays tho following
tribute to Mr. Zan:
"My acquaintance with Mr. Marino Zan
was formed during the last few years
through association in the Manufacturers'
Association of the Northwest, of which
be was president. He was among tho old
est in years In that association, and I
among the youngest. Between us was
the half portion of that period which
is the allotted age of man. In acquaint
ance the difference In our years proved
a strong span and a tender tie, by which
I came to know his kind heart and gen
erous humanity. His was an exceptional
disposition, unselfish, kind, helpful, con
siderate. It is a, full appreciation of that
noble disposition which prompts from me
today a young man's tribute to an elder's
guidance, support and encouragement.
He, of fullnoss In experience and of
knowledge In affairs, was ever ready to
Impart that experience and that knowl
edge; not to parade It as a patent as
signed to his own use and bequest, but
to Infuse It, that his fellows might use
and profit. A character which shuts not
up hid good qualities for selfish purposes
and personal aggrandizement is beautiful
and chlvalric anywhere. His counsel was
given so as to conceal even the semblance
of arrogance or aged wisdom. It was
as the teaching of an Instructor who has
first gained the affection of the pupil, sod
then bestows rather than dictates knowl
edge. The cheerful, helpful. Ingenuous
association which our friend gave to his
fellows lives in my memory aa his emi
nent characteristic I thank him for that
association, which was forbidding to none.
Inviting to all, honest and honorable al
ways. "HI family, more appropriately than
myself, can make reference to those qua!-
ltles of heart and head which. In the pri
vacy of the family circle, and in the Inti
macy of close relationship, made him the
good and true man. Whatever he under
took was pursued with the purpose of ac
complishment. His whole life was energy,
active and not bombastic His force was
success achieved, and not merely contem
plated. "Wo shall miss him in the association;
tho business community of the city will
miss him; his family will miss him more
than all; but he has left us a legacy of
good examples, and his family a good
name and ample fortune honestly ac
quired. His many deeds of charity and
kindness will bo long remembered by his
neighbors and friends."
'TRAILING" 8500 SHEEP.
Wyoming; Man "WIU Drlre His Last
Bis; Band Across the Sagxebruah.
J. I. Carson, a, well-known sheepdrover.
Is in Portland preparing to start "on the
trail" with 8300 yearling wethers, pur
chased In Morrow County, from Messrs.
Elder. Hagar and Whetstone. He says he
would like to buy about CO00 more, but re
marked: "They arc holding 'em too high
for me. I am willing to pay 12 25 a head
for wethers and JJ 75 for ewes, but East
ern Oregon sheepmen think they axe worth
more, so we can't trade."
Mr. Carson says he will start his big
flock early In May, Just aa soon as the
sheep have been shorn. He will probably
ship by train from Hcppner to Hunting
ton, and ferry across tho Snake River
near tho terminus of tho O. R. & N. He
has not yet solved the problem as regards
crossing Wyoming, as the new quarantine
law of that state was framed to prevent
sheep "trailing" across its Government
lands. Ho Is thinking, therefore, of spend
lng tho Summer and Fall In the Wood
River Mountains, and will decide In the
meantime how to Invade Wyoming.
Ho thinks this will be the last band ot
sheep "trailed" across the State of Idaho,
as the Snake River plains are now nearly
all claimed for range, and the water has
been about all taken up. In one locality
he will have a 2S-mllo drive between wat
ering places, and as six miles a day Is a
fair day's travel, the sheep will have to
go without water for four days on a
stretch. He will drive over this region in
the night time, as the weather will be too
hot to enable tho animals to travel without
water. The country along there Is sage
brush and sand, and great care will havo
to bo exercised In order to avoid losing
sheep. He will provide the band with 20
bells, he cays, and by counting these and
the black sheep frequently, the men will
be ablo to miss any large bunch that might
be left behind.
"Trailing sheep across Oregon, Idaho and
Wyoming used to be a picnic," Mr. Carson
says, "when the country was open, but
now we expect more or less trouble from
people who claim the grass all along the
route. We can hunt and fish while th
sheep are resting during the heat of th
day, and our frequent change of location
creates perpetual novelty. Once In a whll
somo Irate farmer or cattleman gets aftet
us, fearing our flocks will eat his grass aU
up bfore we get by, but we have thus fat
avoided any serious trouble, and wo hop
to pull through without any. In this out
last trailing venture across Idaho."
Mr. Carson has been purchasing Oregon
sheep for the "trail" for quite a number
of years, he soys, but never had to pay
as much for them as now. "Flvo years
ago." he said. "I bought all the yearling!
I wanted at $1 a head In Eastern Oregon,
and drove them through to Central City,
Nebraska, where I had them fed on corn
that, coct 8 cents a bushel, and on hny at
$2 a ton, delivered. And yet our firm
made no money out of the transaction
Just came out even. We hope to make
more money now than ever, although we
pay top prices for the sheep, and fodder
rosts a great deal more than It did then."
OUTLOOK IN KENTUCKY.
Crimes Atrnlnat the Franchise Pun
ished by the TJ. S. Courts.
Kentucky Republicans are very much
cncoUraged over the result of the elec
tion recently held, to choose a successor
to the late Senator GoebeL The latter
carried tho county (Kenton) last year
by somo 23)0 plurality, but in the special
election the Democrats won by only COO.
tnougn uoebels law partner was the can
didate, and tho election was held while
feeling was still running high over the
Tho cutting down of the Democratic
lead Is claimed to have resulted from
the fact that there was a fair election,
and tho fairness of the election Is cred
ited to the fact that the United States
courts have demonstrated that they will
punish crimes against the franchise. Con
servative men In both parties recognize
the election as one of the fairest held In
Kentucky for many years, and they also
Join in ascribing the element of fairness
to the action of tho courts.
The election occurred immediately after
the trials of half a dozen case's against
men charged with bribery and other
crimes. The defendant in one of those
cases was a prominent saw mill operator.
At tho time of the election last year he
told his negro employes that, if they
went to the polls to vote, they need not
return to work. Tho defendant was con
victed and sentenced to CO days Imprison
ment. Another caso was one against a
man named Lackey. Ho was found guilty
of buying the votes of a large number of
negroes, and he was sentenced to pay a
fine of $1000 and serve six months in
JalL This man paid a number of ne
groes $3 each to go over the line into
Tcnnesseo and remain there until the elec
tion was over. It was argued on the trial
that, as the money was paid In Tennes
see, the court did not have Jurisdiction,
but Judge Evafjs held: "If these men were
bribed to stay away from the polls in
a Kentucky election. It matters not where
the money was actually. paid to them, tho
offense Is one against the State of Ken
tucky. They are and were voters of tho
State of Kentucky. They were prevented
from voting in the State of Kentucky,
according to the indictment, and this
court has Jurisdiction,"
In some cases In Louisville there was a
disagreement, but Judge Evans became
convinced there was something crooked
and will have one of the Jurymen before
him to explain. This action further dem
onstrated tho determination of tho Judi
ciary to punish the perpetrators of such
Tho net result is that men who have
engaged In tho business of corrupting elec
tions are frightened and it as believed
there will bo a fair election In the state
this fall, the Republicans claiming they
can carry It by 30.000 or more with a free
ballot, and a fair count. The result In
Goebel's county would certainly seem to
judtlfy tho prediction.

WON THE HDD GOLF CUP
VtlKT MINOR CAPTURED DEATJTI
FCL SILVER TROPHY.
Contest Sot Remarkable for Good
Scores but tbe Weather "Was
"He's all right!"
"Who's all right?" .
"Mr. Wirt Minor."
These pointed remarks were made by
Wirt Minor's caddy yesterday when that
gentleman emerged from tho Waverly
Golf Club house, bearing in his arms tho
J. Wesley Ladd silver cup, having dis
tanced all competitors in the golf contest
that has been on since last October. The
unlucky number of 12 competed In the
finals yesterday lor tho Ladd trophy.
Fourteen were eligible, but Mr. Lewis
was unable to be on the links, and his
place was tilled by Jonathan Bourne, who
was not a contestant for the cup. No
records were broken, and an unbiased
spectator would be pardoned for the belief
that most of the golfers were yearning
for the booby prize.
The day was as capricious and giddy as
a lS-year-old girl, and was not favorable
for golfing. At times tho sun shono
brightly and the gentle zephyrs, laden
with the sweet fragrance of apple blos
soms, made the most Infirm devotee of tho
links feel as frisky as a 2-year-old; then
It rained some more and ofttlmes snowed
and hailed to beat tho band. The ground
was too soft and wet to have that elas
ticity that golfers hanker after, but it
was soggy,.and as one player expressed it,
had "that tired feeling." Somo of tho
best, players became entangled in the
bunkers and the-hazards, and the railroad
tracks were at the funeral ot some of the
players" hopes. Mr. Blyth did not turn
In his score. He was the victim of much
good-natured chaff on this account, from
his friends, who attributed thi3 dereliction
to dyspeptic disarrangements. His score,
had it been recorded, would havo been:
Gross, 100; handicap, 4; net. 96.
A number of spectators visited the links
during the day, and in the afternoon sev
eral of the fair sex were there. Among
these were Mrs. Kollock. Miss Laurie
King, the Misses Flanders and Miss Ma
bel Maclcay. After the contest was de
cided, Mr. Ladd, who donated the hand
some silver cup, presented It to Mr. Mi
nor In a neat and appropriate speech
wishing him and his family long life and
prosperity, in the Rip Von Winkle form
ula. "There ain't no family," quoth Mr.
"There should bo posterity, that they
may cherish this trophy," was suggested.
"Then tako back tho cup!" yelled Mr.
The score Is as follows:
Now that the J. Wesley Ladd contest
Is happily settled, the eyes ot the local
golfing world is on the second annual
championship meeting of the Pacific
Northwest Golf Association, which will
take place 6n the Waverly links. April 25,

Prompt Payment Means Many More
PORTLAND. April 7. (To the Edltor.
In consequence of the many conflicting
rumors regarding the disposition of the
money collected last year for the bicycle
paths, and to satisfy myself as to the
facts, I have obtained the Information set
forth In the following statement, which
will be of Interest to the bicycling public.

Balance to Treasurer....-.... $10,213 GO
It Is a popular Impression that .tho en
tire sum of 23 cents of the price of each
tag was retained by the Sheriff, but the
fact 1b that the expenses of collection fell
$361 E0 short of the limit, and that amount
was paid to tho County Auditor for the
path fund. It is true that $131125 was
expended for the services of collectors,
but It Is also true that the blcyclo riders
will receive the benefit of more than $10,000,
and I venture to say that no rider who
has taken even two rides over the paths
.will begrudge the money paid for the
Of the paths now being constructed,
perhaps the most popular one will be the
-Willamette boulovard, which, one of the
commissioners tells me, will be protected
by a row of posts, so that milk .wagons
and other such destroyers will have to
raise their axles or stay off the property
that others have built with private funds.
The bicyclers responded handsomely last
year, and we are reaping a full reward
every day they ride. Now, will they do as
well this year?
I have obtained this Information and
ask you to publish it with the hope that
the payments will be more rapid when
the actual facts are known. The County
Commissioners cannot please every one at
first, but, from my own experience with

fore there was much money paid In. and

an assurance of funds to carry on the '
work, they will have no Just complaint at
the result. It must be remembered, how
