MAHY YEARS AGO.
By the lake beyond the meadow,
Where the lillies blow,
As the young moon dipt and lifted
Her reflected bow
Lived and died a dream of beauty,
Many years ago.
Something made the milk-white blos
soms Even whiter grow ;
Something gave the dying sunset
An intenser glow,
And enriched the cup of pleasure,
FiUed to overflow.
Hope was frail and passion fleeting ; .
It is often so ;
Visions born of Golden sunsets
With the sunsets go ;
To have loved is to have suffered
By the lake beyond the meadow,
Where the lillies blow,
Oh, the glory there that perished
None shall ever know,
When a human heart was broken,
Many years ago.
A Centennial at Chicago.
We read in that well-informed journal,
Americvn Correspondence, that preliminary
steps are being taken for an International
Exhibition, to be held in New York City
in 1882, which will be the centennial anni
versary ot the close of the Revolution. It
will be a blunder if the -next international
exhibition is located at the East. It be
longs to the West. The only world's exhi
bitions yet held in this country have been
located near the Atlantic seaboard. It is
high time that foreign people are taught
that but a very small portion of the United
States borders the Atlantic coast, and that
New York, Philadelphia and Boston are not
the only American cities capable of success
fully conducting and supporting a Uuiversal
Exposition. The most successful inter-state
exhibition of the country has its home in
Chicago. The same vast empire of which
Chicago is the center, and the same enter
prising people that have developed the re
sources of the Northwestern states, built its
cities, and transacted its boundless commer
cial business, can and will furuish every ele
ment that is needed to make our interna
tional exhibition a success of which the
world may be proud.
The additional expense of transporting
foreign contributions to an exposition here
would, at most, be a trifling affair, and
would be most willingly borne by nations
that supply us with their manufactured
wares, and who take in exchange the grains
and meats of our prairies. Visitors would
gladly travel the additional distance from
the point of debarkation, for they would
have an opportunity never yet granted them
of gaining a knowledge of the marvelous
country wnose material and intellectual pro
gress reads to them like a dream.
lhe result oi a knowledge of our institu
tions and capabilities thus imparted, would
be worth, in a monetary view, untold mil
lions to the West.
If the project for a permanent exposition
here, as mentioned in another article, is
carried out as it should speedily be, it will
form a starting point toward the prepara
tions for an international exhibition worthy
of consideration. Will not the pojectors of
that enterprise at once take steps, before
New York has fairly embarked in the
scheme, to secure for lis the next American
world s fair ?
As the Review has said before, the proper
time for this fair will be in 1882. the centen
ary of the recognition of America as a nation
by the civilized powers of Europe.

Ilow to Select a Husband.
It has been profoundly remarked, that
the true way of telling a toadstool from a
mushroom is to eat it. If you die, it was a
toadstool, if you live, it was a mushroom.
A similar method is employed in the selec
tion of husbands : marry him, if he kills you
he was a bad husband : if he makes you
happy he is a good one. There is really no
other criterion. As Dr. Samuel Johnson re
marked, the proof of the pudding is in the
eating thereof. Some young men that seem
unexceptionable, indeed, very desirable,
when thev are single, are perfectly horrid as
soon as they are married. All the latent
brute there is in the tieart comes out as soon
as a sensitive and delicate being seeks her
happiness in his companionship. The hon
eymoon lasts a very short time, the recep
tions and the round of parties are soon over,
and then the two sit down to make home
happy. If she has married a society man,
he will soon beein to get bored ; he will
yawn and go to sleep on the sofa. Then he
will take his hat and go down to the club
and see the boys, and perhaps nut come
home till morning. If she has married a
man engrossed in business, he will be fagged
out when he comes home. He may be a
sickly man that she must nurse, a morose
man that she must seek to cheer, a drunken
man that she must sit up for, a violent man
that she fears, a vulgar man for whom she
must apoljgize in short, there are thou
sands of ways of being bad husbands, and
very lew vays oi oeing good ones. Ana
the worst of it is, that the poor silly women
are apt. to admire m single men the very
traits that make bad husbands, and look
with contempt or ridicule upon those quiet
virtues that make home happy. Men with
very little personal beauty or style, often
make the wife happy and sometimes quite
the reverse. Ine number ot ways of hems'
a bad husband is almost as great as the
number of ways of being ugly. No one
can tell from the demeanor of a single man
what sort of husband he will be. Mean
time she must marry somebody. Eat : if
you die it was a sort of toadstool, if you
live it was a sort of mushroom. Baltimore
Evei y Saturday.
When the peddler rang Mr. Bird's door
bell the other day Mr. Bird himself opened
the door. Mr. Bird had the baby upon his
arm, and there were four other children at
" Is the lady of the house in ? " asked the
"Certainly she isn't," replied Bird.
" She is out. She is perennially and eter
nally out ! "
' Where can I see her ? "
" Why, go down to the Woman Suffrage
club-room ; and if she isn't there, go to the
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals ; and if she isn't there, visit the
hall of the Association for Alleviating the
Miseries of the Senegambians ; and if she
has finished up there, look for her at the
Church Aid Society, or at the Ninth Ward
Soup-house, or at the Home of the One
Legged, or at the Refuge for Infirm Dogs,
or at the Hospital for the Asthmatic, or at
the St. Polycarp Orphan Asylum, or at some
of these places. If you get on her track,
you'll see more pauper and strong-minded
women and underclothing for the heathen
than you ever saw in the whole course of
your life. "
" I wanted to sell her a cold-handled flat
iron, just out. Do you think she will buy
" She will if you can prove that the naked
cannibals in Sengambia are yearning for
cold-handled flat-irons. She would buy dia
mond breastpins for those niggers, if they
wanted them, I believe."
" I intended, also, to offer her a new kind
of immovable hairpin, which "
" All right. You just go down to the
Home for the Oue-Legged, and persuade
these cripples to cry for immovable hair
pins, and she'll order 'em by the ton. "
" Has she any children ?,"
" Well, I'm the one that appears to have
'em ; just now, anyhow."
' Because I have a cum-top for a feeding
bottle that is just the nicest thing you ever
"Now," said Mr. Bird, "I'll tell you
what to do. You get those paupers to
swear they can't Ciit the soup they get at
the soup-house with spoons ; they must have
it from bottles with a rubber nozzle, and
Mrs. Bird will keep you so busy supplying
the demand that you won't have a chance to
sleep. You just try it. Buy up the pau
pers ! Bribe 'em."
" How'll I know her if I see her ? "
" Why, she's a very large woman with
a bent nose, and she talks all the time.
You'll hear her talking as you get within a
mile of her. She'll ask you to subscribe to
the Senegambian fund and to the Asthmatic
Asylum before you can get your breath.
Probably she'll read you four or five letters
from reformed cannibals. But don't you
mind 'em. My opinion is that she wrote
'em herself. It don't make any difference,
but you might mention that since she left
home the baby has had four fits. Johnny
has fallen out of the pear tree and broken
his skull, Mary and Jim have something like
croup, and Tommy has been bitten by
Jones' dog. It don't excite her. She won't
care a cent; but I'd like her tjo have the lat
est news. Tell her if she can manage to drop
in here for a minute between now and the
Fourth of July she might maybe wash the
baby and give the other children a chance to
remember how ahe looks. But she needn't
come if it will interfere with the happiness
of the one-legged mendicants, or make asth
matic patients miserable. Mind and men
tion it to her now, will you ? "
" All right ; then I'll go in and put some
fresh sticking-plaster on Johnny's skulL"
And with baby singing a vociferous solo,
and the other children clinging to his leg,
Mr. Bird retreated and shut the door. The
peddler had determined to propose to a girl
that night. He changed his mind, and re
solved to remain a bachelor. Cincinnati

Little Nellie was looking at "Woolfs
Wild Animals when Mr. Jorkins called,
and appealed to that gentleman to explain
one of the pictures.
" That's a wild boar," said he, and the
little lady looked at it thoughtfully and re
" It don't look like you, does it, Mr. Jor
kins ! "
" I hope not," responded the guest.
" Because, said the artless innocent,

frozen lips thawed sufficiently to inform the

ington special repeats the statement that the
Pacific coast senators will introduce during
the extra session a modified scheme for the
restriction of Chinese immigration, and adds
that it is probable Senator Blaine will take
occasion to explain more fully his position
in regard to the question. The measure,
however, will not be pushed to final action,
and is only designed to keep the subject be
fore the country and in a position, in which
it can be reached early next winter.
Washington, March 21. In the house
Democratic caucus meeting to-day a general
interchange of views occurred with regard to
the most practical mode of procedure, and
considerable difference of opinion was mani
fested as to the most effective and judicious
course. Without passing upon any resolu
tions, and after conferring with Senator
Thurman, chairman of the senate caucus
committee, it was decided to postpone all
further consideration of the question at issue
until to-morrow morning, at which time a
joint meeting will be held with the senate
committee and definite action be taken.
Springer, Carlisle and Reagan were ap
pointed a sub-committee on the part of the
house committee to prepare a bill for consid
eration at the joint meeting to-morrow, em
bodying provisions for the repeal of certain
portions ot the federal election laws ; and
such new provisions as the sub-committee
may consider desirable to enact. In con
nection with the proposed repeal in case the
majority shall determine that it is not advis
able to adhere to the original programme of
passing the appropriation bills precisely in
form so tar as regards political repeal sec
tions which now permit the presence of
troops at the polls under certain circumstan
ces, and to substitute for them substantially
the British law on the subiect, which pro
hibits soldiers being stationed at auy point
nearer than two miles from the polls, or to.
go to them except for the purpose ot voting,
in which case they must immediately after
wards return to their station. The bill will
also embody the repeal of jurors' test oath
provisions ot existing law.
It must be eminently right and
good to rise early, because it is so
inhumanly hard to do it.
COMPILED FROM THE DAILY OREGONIAN.
London, March 19. The Examiner learns
on good authority, that negotiations are in
progress between the courts of St. Peters
burg and Madrid, for cession by purchase to
Russia of the Ladrone islands. They would
constitue a magnificent base for cruiser op
erations in the China sea.
Pesth, March 19. One hundred and
twenty thousand persons are rendered home
less by the recent overflow. Eighty-two
hundred out of ten thousand houses have
fallen and nineteen hundred persons
drowned. The waters are subsiding and the
adjacent towns are out of danger.
Ualctttta, March 19. The origin ot the
trouble between Burmese and British resi
dents at Mandalay is that the latter protect
and refuse to deliver up to slaughter two
royal princes and their families, wh- have
taken refuge at the residency, lhe king ot
Burmah, who is said to be mad with drink,
urged by fanatics aud the reactionary party,
threatens to force the residency. Such a
hostile measure on part of the government,
it is believed, would be the signal for a gen
eral massacre of citizens.
San Francisco, March 20. At the ses
sion of the state central committee of the
workingmen's party to-day, nine counties
were represented. An address was issued
to the common people of California, solicit
ing them to vote tor the new constitution.
A resolution was offerred requesting Wel
lock to resign as vice-president of the party,
on the ground of not not being a voter, and
using abusive language. Wellock reluseu,
in a speech, defying the committee, and
claiming he had been elected by the state
convention, a higher power than the com-
jnittee, and he would appeal to the people if
the resolution was earned, lhe resolution
was then adopted, ten to one to remove
Wellock from office, and Clitus Barbour was
chosen m his place.
A very rare phenomenon for this latitude
was witnessed in thi3 city this morning be
tween the hours of 8 and 9 o'clock. It con
sisted of a couple of mock suns or "sun
dogs,"- which had formed at the northern
and southern limbs of a halo.
Anaheim, March 20. Dennis Kearney
snoke in Santa Anna this aft.pninrwi jvnrl in
tne course of his speech took occasion to
grossly abuse several of the prominent citi
zens. After he had eaten supper he was ap
proached by a gentleman he had villified
and asked his authority for his statements.
He said that he was a nublic asritator. and
any local grievances he could pick up he
gave forth in his own way, and that any one
had a right to get on the platform and re
fute it. While he was speaking a man
named Kule struck him a powerful blow in
the face, and in the melee that ensued,
Kearney drew a pistol but it was taken
away from him and be was severely beaten.
He presented a pitiable appearance. The
deputy sheriff arrived and rescued him.
New Yobk, March 21. A Tribune Wash
HE HISITS PORTLAND WITH HIS STAFF GOING
TO WASHINGTON FOR A HIYU WA-WA.
Moses, chief of the Methow tribe of Indi
ans, Homli, late chief of the Walla Wallas,
but who sometime since abdicated in favor
of Youn; Chief, Illehe Jim, a nephew of
Moses, and little Wolf, a sub-chief of the
Walla Wallas, arrived in town yesterday
morning from Vancouver. " Abe Lincoln,"
a halfbreed, who is employed at the Simcoc
reservation as government blacksmith, was
also of the party and acts as interpreter.
Major Boyle, of the 21st infantry had the
party in charge. Immediately upon disem
barking from the steamer the "savage wards
of our trovernment " proceeded to the cloth
ing house of Fishel & Roberts, and were
soon busily engaged in appareling themselves
after the manner of their white brethren.
All went well enough with Moses in the ef
forts of a half dozen clerks to suit his aes
thetic taste, and at last a suit of " diagon
als was agreed upon as the proper thing.
But when Edgerton, the haberdashery clerk,
brought the chief an open back " biled "
shirt to don, a sudden fire seemed to illum
inate his eye and the trembling salesman
beat a hasty retreat up the rear stairway as
the war whooper from Priest Rapids grabbed
the offending garment and put it on. The
news of their presence in the store caused a
large crowd to gather in the salesroom, eager
to see the big injuns. Their purchases com
pleted the party made a flank movement on
the crowd and escaped through a side door
leading to Alder street and proceeded to the
postofnee building. The party ascended to
the dome, and for some time enjoyed the
view of the city. Moses, through the inter
preter, spoke of the time he was here before
over 30 years ago before the houses of
the pale face dotted the land, when the Wil
lamette rolled noiselessly onward to the sen
beneath the shade of a pathless forest, where
to-day its banks are lined by miles of docks,
imposing buildings and the masts of ship
ping from all parts of the world. Leaving
Government square Moses and his party
proceeded down Yamhill street, aud while
leisurely taking in the sights was ambuscad
ed by Joe Buchtel, the photographer, and
captured. After enjoying the novelty of
having their pictures taken, a lunch was
next disposed of and thair visit to town
completed, they gathered up their carpet
bags and returned to Vancouver. Major

A ernad storv is told of one of the
(rrand iurors from Nortlifield. Vt.. in
attendance upon the last term ot court
at Montpelier. He was afraid he
would not wake in season to take the
civ -Vlndr train In t.h nsinitnl which
he had talked over with his wife on
retiring. lie had just got into a
amind B.lfon when his faithful riioiiso
woke him, suggesting that it must be
time to get up. He did; found it
wes only midnight, and retired again.
Soon he was aroused ap-ain. and this
time, upon consulting the clock, it
proved to be only two a. m. Some
what dissrusted and ansrered at being
so often broken in his slumbers, he
again sought his couch, admonishing
his wife thus :
" Look here, you keep your elbow
out of my back, and your mouth out
of my ear till morning."
Feeling herself relieved of any fur
ther responsibility, she went to sleep
for good, arid left her lord and mas
ter to wake when he chose, which he
did at four o'clock. Thinking it
would riot pay to try and get any
more sleep, he built a fire, put on his
hat and overcoat, took his valise in
his hand, and sat before the fire a
few minutes. Meanwhile, his wife
slumbered on until seven o'clock
when she awoke to find him gone,
whereat she felt very badly, as she
intended to have got him a warm
breakfast. Leisurely dressing herself,
she sought the kitchen where, to her
astonishment, she beheld her husband,
equipped for his jonrney, satchel in
hand, sitting bolt upright in his chair
before the stove, fast asleep, and the
traiu gone over an hour. Ex.

The particulars of a cool premedi
tated attempt to murder has just
reached us from Wasco county, and
are as follows : On Deep creek in
Wasco county Mr. Geo. Young, of
this city, and his partner, own a
range and seven thousand head pt
sheep. Several herders are constant
ly employed to look alter and care
for the various flocks, all returning
to the house at night where the sheep
Ere corraled. A Chinese cook is em
ployed, by name Ah Sam. , In conse
quence of the extensive business
transacted Mr. Shanklin, the partner,
often had several hundred dollars in
the house. at a time, and always had
a hundred or two. Sam seemed to
be perfectly contented, performed his
work well and was on the best ot
terms with the herders. , He had also
contracted to remain a year longer in
the capacity of cook. Business call
ed Mr. Shanklin to the Dalles. Break
fast was prepared and the herders
called in from the barn. The coffee
was poured out by the Chinaman,
who kept chatting merrily all the
time. One of the men took a mouth
ful of the coffee, but Fpit it out as its
taste was very unpleasant. Others
did the same and complained of the
peculiar flavor, telling the cook it
was not fit to drink. Sam insisted
that it was all right and to prove
what he said stepped to the table and
took a swallow. Breakfast over, with
out coffee, the men made preparations
to drive their flocks to the range.
After the lapse of about an hour one
ot the men, whose duty it was to look
after things about the house, entered
and found Sam laying on his bed
cold in death. He at once called in
the herders and upon a search being
made an empty bottle which had con
tained poison was found on the floor
behind the stove, and another bottle
partially filled found in Sam's pocket.
He had taken this from the medicine
chest. It was used for poisoning
coyotes. by Mr. Shanklin. The other
bottle had been kept in the cupboard,
a portion of it having been used. It
is thought that the Chinaman intend
ed to poison the men and rob the
piemises. In order to induce them
to drink the coffee he took a sip nev
er dreaming so little would affect
him. It was so strong, however, that
the flavor of the coffee was changed,
and the little drink he took laid him
stiff. After breakfast, thinking his
plan had failed, he went to work
washing his dishes and probably de
vising some other plan when the
stomach ache struck him and he laid
down and died. The men were over
joyed at their fortunate escape and
flit little sorrow for the victim of his
own murderous plot. Portland Stan-
" Bunkoing" at present does not have a
very cheerful outlook, and those who have
been engaging in that questionable and per
nicious avocation are not happy. There
have been several instances in which out
raged law has been vindicated in the bring
ing to justice of the offendingj)arties. Since
the commencement of the present term of
the State Circuit Court five bunko and strap
game sharps have been convicted, namely :
Thomas Burch, L. C. Lakin, Henry Jacobs,
W. H. McDonald and Wm. Bell. Three of
the parties have already been sentenced,
and are inmates of the penitentiary. Mc
Donald and Bell, the two remaining culprits,
will probably be sentenced in a few days.
Honesty is the best policy, and those, who
prefer to gain a precarious living by engag
ing in such business, rather than earn a liv
ing by useful and honorable labor, should
understand that there is a law in Oregon
for t he protection - of the community, and
that it wiil be vigorously enforced. The
.sooner these human vampires ars taught th;8
lesson the better it will be for society and
themselves. Oregonian .

definite proposition has been submitted by
Koehler to the people of Independence and
those living along the route. That the West
Side railroad will be located along the last
survey, running along Second street provid

the right to change the route so as to run

quires right of way to be secured half the
distance between here and that town. The
people, it is understood, will accept the
proposition. A meeting is called to consider
subjects connected with the railroad. Buena
Vista, in the meantime, has made advance
