Sis ifinnts: Dslihsration by ths Jury.
(Special Dispatch to the Corvallis Gazette.)
Washington, Jan. 25. Judge Porter re
sumed his argument to the jury this morn
ing, but owing to the severity of the weath
er, which caused great suffering to himself,
the court and the jury, he varied his argu
ment very much from hisoriginal intention.
He did not linger upon the dry details of
the case but confined himself to the discus
sion of the most important facts.
During the whole progress of the argu
ment Guitteau kept up a continuous stream
of spiteful and vindictive abuse. Never be
fore had his vindictiveness been so plain.
Seeing that his impending doom was un
mistakably near at hand, his cunning merged
i lto severe outbursts of anger and sr.ite.
As soon as Judgs Cox had finished de
livering his charge to the jury Che latter
retired for deliberation. A few minutes after
the jury had retired the Court adjourned
for a short recess.
Soon after adjournment of the Court the
jry signified that they had. agreed upon a
Thereupon the court was reopened and
the jury was then called in.
The jury then declared that they had
agreed upon their verdict and that they had
found the prisoner guilty of murder in the
first d-gre', as charged in the indictment.
The jury va3 cat deliberating only six
minutes in arriving to a conclusion.

they discovered a one armed man named
James Sullivan, and another, Wm. Howard,
hid in some hay on a dock, and placed them
in the custody of the Sheriff. Next morn
ing they were taken before two Justices,
who conducted the trial in joint session,
assisted by Chief Justice Green, of the terri
torial supreme court. The evidence against
them was direct and conclusive, leaving no
doubt of their guilt. A loaded revolver
taken from Sulliv-in had one empty cham

Whether this is the result of an assassin or

any previous warning to those who daily
saw him. The second, young Tabj as

' Improvement of ie Willamette ttlvcr.
The Government snag boat Corvallis ar
rived here Wednesday morning on her way
to Harrisburg, where it is intended for her
to commence to clean out the river and from
thence work North. How far North it is
intended for her to proceed, or whether she
is to assist in removing the obstacles in the
way of water craits below Portland, or
whether her attentions to the Willamette
river is the result of a portion of Mayor
Thompson's efforts in Congress, we will not
at this time attempt to explain, as our in
formation does not extend that far.
On last 1'riday evening, the 20th inst, at a
convenient hour citizens of this couuty met
at the Court house for the purpose of taking
into consideration the propriety of adopting
a suitable memorial to pressnt to Congress
showing the importance and necessity of a
liberal appropriation being granted by that
body for the purpose of improving the
Yaquina bay Harbor. Although the notice
given was hut a few hours yet the meeting
was vrCll attended and a grand success.
Judge F. A, Chenoweth was chosen chair
man, who brief!' stated the object of the
meeting, and Zephin Job was elected Sec
retary. Judge Burnett, then briefly address
ed the meeting urging the importance of
taking immediate steps for the purpose of
showing to Congiess the actual necessity
of an appropriation for not less than $200,-
000, which sum was rcccommended by the
Oregon Legislature for the purpose in
question. He said to ask less than this
amount would be doing an actual injustice
to the pcojjle of the Willamette valley and
Eastern Oregon. He also cited numerous
authorities from the several acts of Congress,
showing conclusively that the policy of
Congress had always been liberal in making
appropriations for public improvements of
Judge Kelsay then spoke in a yery forci
ble manner claiming that as the legislature
of our state had asked Congress to appropri
ate the sum of 200,000 for the improve
ment of the Yaquina bay harbor and as
shown by the bill recently introduced in
Congress that our representative had fallen
below that amount we should take active
measures in asking for the sum named by
the legislature of our State.
Dr. Bayley, B. W. Wilson and others
made verry appropriate remarks on the
questions under consideration, after which
a memorial to Congress was read and on
motion by Mr. M. Jacobs it was unanimous
ly adopted. After its passage every one in
the house signed it as rapidly as their names
could be written with pen and ink.
The following is a copy of the memorial
Whereas, the Legislature of Oregon at
the Session of 18S0 unanimously resolved
to petition Congress for an appropriation of
S20J;000 for improvement of the entrance
to Yaquina Bay.
And Whereas, subsequent events and
especially the building of the Oregon Pa
cific Railroad with its terminus at Yaquina
Bay have still further demonstrated the
urgent necessity of such appropriation.
2?ov be it Resolved. That this meeting
cannot recognize the proposed appropriation
of 60,000 mentioned in the bill introduced
by Hon. M. C. George as adequate to pro
vide for the early completion of the improve
ment. That the Senators and Representative
from Oregon be respectfully but earnestly
invited to use their best endeavors in Con
gress to procure the insertion of the sum of
8200,000, and no less in the appropriation
bill in question.
That a cony of these Resolutions be sent
to the Senators and Representative, and
that the Hon. M. C. George be especially
requested to exert all the influence vested
in him as a member of the Committej c.n
Commerce to secure an end to which he has
pledged himself, both publicly and privately
on his canvass, and which formed one of the
chief grounds for the confidence in him felt
by the Willamette Valley and proved by

and for a secretary and interpreter to the
commission. The biU provides that the
commission under the direction of the
secretary of the interior shall yisit such
tribes as the president may designate, and
v uthorizes them, after obtaining information
to enlighten their judgment and under
standing in the premises, to enter into
agreements with the Indians with their free
consent, for the reduction of reservations
in cases where the commission shall deem
such reduction advisable. The commission
is also authorized negotiate for the cession
of entire reservations and removal of In
dians to other reservations, and for surveys
and sales of such reservations to be made
by the government and moneys to be ex
pended for the benefit of Indians on the
resserves to which they may be removed.
Provision is also made for allotment in
severalty on their new reserves.
The object of the bill, as explained by
Secretary Kirkwood is eventually to make
the Indians self-supporting, to give .them
the title to their lauds in severalty and
educate an i civilize them. Another feature
of the bill is to provide by treaty for pay
ing the Indians within a limited period
after passage of the act, and after such
sums shall become payable, the principal
of all trust funds now held by the United
States for Indians. Still another feature
of the bill is the gradual reduction of the
annual appropriation by congress tor sup
port of Indians until in the near future, as
the Indians become self-supporting, such
appropriations shall eutirely cease. The
bill, while aiming to bring Indians into a
condition of self-support, carefully guards
all their rights and interests and is m lull
accord with recommendations in the secre
tary's annual report and with the views
of the president upon Indian affairs as ex
pressed in his message to congress.

preached last night in the Central Presby
terian church on Mormonism. He said 25
years ago Mormonism, a little cloud, appear
ed on the surface in Utah. It has increas
ed until to-day it covers that whoie terri
tory and holds the controlling power in
Utah, Montana, Washington, Oregon,
Arizona, New Mexico, and almost in the
state of Colorado. Nearly one-third of the
United States is occupied by 150,000 Mor
mons who. spurred on by religious fanati
cism, are determined soon to rebel and then
fight to the death. We think that we
make laws which govern territories, but
oiHcials appointed in Utah by the president
are mere figureheads. John Taylor is the
governing power of Utah. Sitting in his
office in Salt Lake City, by aid of the tele
graph he can reach every one of his bishops,
who can scatter his decrees to nearly the
whole Mormon population in three hours.
John Taylor says to Utah, to Arizona or to
Idaho, send such a man as delegate to con
gress, and the people dare not disobey him.
In Colorado he even can almost dictate who
shall not only be congressman, but also the
two senators from that state.
Washington, Jan. 23. The senate ju-
liciar7 committee to-day agreed on a bill
lesigned for the suppression of polygamy.
Its main features are petitions, based on
Edmunds' bill, doing away with the present
requirements for proffs of polygamous mar
riage, by providing that the fact of living
on bigamous relations shall be sufficient ev
idence tor conviction, and that in prosecu
tion for bigamy any porson drawn as jury
man may be challenged on the ground that
he practices or believes in a polygamus
religious right. Certain provisions were
introduced by Senator Logan debarring all
polygami3ts from the privileges ot voting,
service on piry, or holding omce.
Des Moins, Jan. 23. This morning Henry
and Willie, the three and four-year-old
children of Henry and Caroline Cleer, liv
ing in the suburbs of East Des Moines,
were burned to death while alone at home.
The father was working and the mother
gossiping at a neighbor's. The door was
closed so the children conld not open it, and
their bodies were burned to an unrecogniza

Chicago, Jan. 24. Dr. Bootie, who died
this afternoon, was a grand nephew of
Daniel Boone, and was born in Kentucky
while his parents were surrounded by Indi
ans. He moved to Illinois in 1824 and served
in" the Black Hawk war.

presented the name of Brown Aliens re

excitement. Four readjusters broke party
lines and voted with the Democrats.
that the practice of polygamy has for con'
turies been justly branded with infamy by
the criminal codes of every Christian conn-'
try as degrading to women and destructive
to the family: that it has in all ages been
the parent of ignorance, weakness and un-"
natural vice, and has wrought the ruin or
every people which it has polluted; proving
itself always everywhere the deadly enemy
of virtue, civilization, good order and freo
government, while' Mormon history, with
its treasons and massacres, as well as its'"
moral abominations, is' a disgrace to tho"
American naime and the civilization of the
nineteenth century. Its present conditions
give no promise of improvement, but threat
en rebellion and civil war in the near future,
and tin's temporizing and conciliatory policy,
beginning with the appointment of Brigham
Youug as governor of Utah in 1850 by Fill
more, and its contemptible failure admits"
no further trifling. The time has come for
vindication of the decency and majesty of
the law. It is shameful that the depraved
public sentiment of a band of lawless fanat
ics should be permitted longer to defy law
and the fully expressed will of the people.
Rochester, January 23. The Pastors'
Union, composed of Presbyterian, Baptist
and Methodist pastors of the .city and vieinii"
ty, in regular meeting considered the sub
ject of Mormonism, and resolved to hold a
public meeting soon in opposition to the
system, with the view of awakening public
interest against it. A committee was ap
pointed to make arrangements.

Little Rock, Jan. 20. Leading republi

the prospective course to De taaeu ui tne

The object of the leaders will be to place
a ticket in the field composed of conserva

means possible draw around it the support
