OFFICIAL PAPER FOR BENTON COuriTY
THE TARIFF BILL.
It it claimed that Western Repub
licans can not afford to accept the
Ways and Mean8Committee's Tariff
bill as was brought before the house.
It is said to be even worse than the
tariff commission's bill. While a lew
redactions were made yet there were
many advances. By it the tax on
quinine is restored. Pig-iron is
taxed at 6.72 per ton; armor plate
t 2-J cts. per lb.; cotton lies at
14-10 cents per pound or 82 per
est. Lead ore is taxed at l centf
per.lb. 50 per cent more than now,
and nickel at 25 cents instead of 20
cents per lb Some clarifications are
changed and made more complete.
It is hard to toll what effect the pas
sage of such a bill would have on the
business of the country. It seems to
be a measure for obstruction and
that is what the manufacturer lobby
ists are working for.
GOV. BUTLER'S ADDRESS.
A small tempest has arisen in the
Massachusetts Legislature, says the
New York Times, over a proposition
to print 10,000 extra copies of Gov.
B. F. Butler's inaugural address.
The usual number of extra copies
ordered is 2,000, but the Democrats
ay that the document is of uncom
mon interest, and should be read by
very voter in the State, as it shows
bow Massachusetts has been mis -governed.
Some of the Republicans
who oppose the proposition to print
the unprecedented number of 10,
000 copies of ibis Incendiary docu
ment say that it is "a put-up job" to
give Gov. Butler an opportunity to
veto tho measure and thus gain that
cheap reputation for economy for
which he is undoubtedly hungry.
Then there are others who declare
that the address is a tissue of mis
representation, and that a revnt-

W5RM0NISM FOUND A HEW ADVOCATE.
Judge Jerry Black has disting
uished himself by holding as uncon
stitutional the Edmunds bill passed
some time ago by congress for the
regulation of mormonism on account
of its interfering with an establish
ment of religion. It is barely possible
that the decision may be correct but
we don't believe it and it will be
many a long day before be will suc
ceed in making any considerable
portion-of the American people be
lieve that such decission has the first
legal or constitutional principle to
support. The practice of lascivious-'
saving corps of the department, ex
cept when used to catch persons who
leap from a height not exceeding
twenty feet, is the 'catch canvas'
which is held by a number of per
sons. A person jumping into a can
vas of this character from a distance
of thirty feet, takes the same chan
ces as if he leaped onto a plank floor,
he being liable to break some bones,
if not his neck. Now, my idea is
that instead of using such canvas,
nets, such as we use in oui business
should be used by the corp, one like
this, for instance," and he pointed
to one stretched in the theatre, com
posed of small strong ropes covered
with netting inado of small cords.
'This," said he, "is very light, yet
strong enough to resist a weight of
eight hundred pounds thrown from a
height of fifty feet. For use in the
fire department I would have on each
corner of the net a piece of gas pipe
eight feet long, to serve as stan
chions, and from each corner of the
net ropes to be held by three or four
men, who, pulling from opposite cor
ners, would hold the stanchions in
place. A person could then throw
himself from a window fifty or sixtv
feet above, and, by striking the net
would escape without injury to limn.
If he should break through the net
ting the safety ropes 'would catch
him aud prevent him from going
through." Mr. Leo spoke at some
length of his results in experiment
ing with various kinds of catch blank
ets and nets, but had never found
any as safe as the one he and his
Drother are now using. He then
described a safety line by which a
person may be lowered from any
window of a house to the street in
perfect safety. After this he gave
an exhibition of the manner in which
a person should be lifted by a fire
man to be carried down a ladder.
Mr. Leo, who weighs but 165 pounds,
picked up Assistant Engineer Imbrir,
whoweighs 220 pounds, in a pecu
liarapnexwhich he fully explained,
across his back and
Ote3 up a step-ladder with him
rand down again with as much ease
if Jie carried a twentv-pound
package. By the peculiar manner in
which he grasps a person the person
is unable to resist, while he himself
has the free use of his left hand. He
then showed the difference in the
grasp used to carry a female, and
explained how firemen should pick
up persons who have become as
phyxiated and are unable to move
any limbs. The brothers promised
the chief that they will give an ex
hibition of methods in life-saving at
one of the truck houses next week.
Chief Scannell stated that he will
have all the men of the truck com
panies learn the grasp requisits to
pick up and carry men and women.

city playing a short engagement at

LIFE SAVING AT FIRES.
in ine sstcmaara ot a recent date
we find "the above subject corow-ri-ted
upon in a manner which will rcx
omraend-the subject to the careful
consideration of all firemen:
Usually, after a- large fire simitar
to the Newhall house catastrophe,
the first thing is to consider the mir
takes thci .vers made by people in
trying to escape, or in helping other
people oat, and various suggestions
are made with a view of aiding in
the matter of relief at the awful mo
merit. But because of the want ot
proficiency in the art of life saving
pr the impracticability of the schemes,
people are still left to get out of
burning buildings as best they can.

CONCERNING FREE TRADE.
The Philadelphia Inquirer thinks
that the once cherished heresy of
States' rights is rapidly losing
its hold on the South. "Rabid Bonr
bons," it says, "may reassert it, but
the younger generation consider Jhfl
doctrine as buried in the grave at
Appomattox. Free trade sentiments
are also on the wane. Tho strong
conservatism of the Southern people
causes many of them to nominally
adhere to this economic sophistry,
but they do so more because it was
held by their fathers than because
they really believe in it themselves."
The Inquirer holds that the young
men of the South have learned that
the "extreme States' rights dem
agogues brought on their section an
nnsuccessful war, and they fail to see
wherein the free traders are likely to
benefit their interests." The same
class of men that used to insist that
slavery was a divine institution are
now telling the new generation at
the South that free trade is a nation
al blessing, and the latter will soon
mile as broadly at the assertion as
hey do now at the repetition of the
ther exploded fallacy. ' .
There is a hurry with the democ
racy to determine who are in favor
and who are against Pendleton's civil
service" reform bill. The organs
claim it to be a great principle some
of them agreeing that its supporters
in the party are a bogus species of
Democrats and that its opponents
are pure patriots and that the latter
kind must assend to the reins of gov
ernment while the former must step
down and out. The amusing thing
is that the Democratic party in most
all of its slate and national plat
forms for years have been demand
ing reform of this nature and de
nouncing tho Repudlican party for
alleged abuses which this bill is in

it was endeavoring to ride in as a

Steamer Tacoma Wrecked Near the Mouth
of Umpqua River.
Empire City, Or. Feb. 2. The Bteamer
Tacoma went ashore Monday night, the 29,
at 9 P. M., four miles north of the Umpqua
river. The captain and six men landed yes
terday. The tug Sol Thomas went to her
yesterday, but could not get the crew off on
account of the heavy sea. She was broken
amidships, both the stern and the bow be
ing under water. She lays about 300 yards
from the shore. The captain has sent here
for tugs and life boats.
Charles Wells, the passenger, who arrived
here yesterday, stated to me that at 11 o'
clock Monday noon Captain Kortz said that
they were 5 miles off shore, and at dark no
land was in sight, and that the evening was
dark but not foggy: that between half-past
eight and nine o'clock Capt. Kortz retired,
a,j at about 9:15 the ship struck the beach
in tha I'uter line of breakers. The second
mate was tfS the bridge at the time the ship
struck, but (iii! not either see or hear the
breakers untill ehi? was in them. The ship
was making between 13 and 14 miles per
hour at the time she i.mck. A heavy ssa
was running at the time an."? made a com
plete breach o-er her. Sh commenced
taking water and iii about two hours the
firemen had to leave the fireroom. In a
short time all the boats but one were stove.
Tuesday morning Captain Kortz landed on
the beach to go for assistance. He got the
weeks ago, and made the fastest trip on re
crod around thn horn. She sailed from New
Tacoma last Saturday with 3700 tons of coal.
Her cost was 250,000.
Empire City, Feb. 3 The steam tug
Fearless has arrived from the wreck of the
Tacoma. Nine of the crew were lost, and
the First Assistant Engineer Grant died
after getting ashore. The ship is complete
ly broken up. Nothing can be saved from
the wreck. Five bodies were recovered and
will be buried to-day. Engineer Grant was
buried yesterday. Nothing can be seen of
the wreck but the top of the cylinder at low
water. Seven men were lost off the fore
yard when the mast went overboard.
It is claimed by a recent dispatch to the
Oreijonian that the loss of life in the above
wreck was much owing to the fact that the
keeper of the life saving station at Cape
Gregory refused and. would not permit the
life boat to go to the distressed crew a dis
tance of about nine miles when a volunteer
crew offered and stood ready to take the
boat to the wrect. It is said that if the
boat had been permitted to have gone their
that the lives would likely have been saved.
NOVEL DREDGING APPARATUS.
The Principle of Hydraulic Mining Applied
to Removing Bars Invention of J. H.
Huffer, of Jacksonville, or.
Several months ago a paten was granted
to John H. Huffer, of Jacksonville, iu this
state, says the Orcjoni tn. for an apparatus
for removing sand bars in rivers, cutting
channels in harbors, etc. Mr. Huffer has
sent to Capt Chas. F. Powell, U. S. engin
eer, drawings of the apparatus, with a
description of its workings. It is simply a
stern wheel boat, fitted with a force pump,
which is connected with a hydraulic tube.
This tube is fitted firmly in the bow of the
boat and reaches to the bottom of the river.
Its lower or discharging end faces in a for
ward direction and is bent so as to eject the
water which passes through it in nearly a
horizontal course, to facilitate the forcing
action of the jet on the sand or mud to pro
duce a current down stream. The tube may
be of any suitable construction, but it is
preferred to use a tube similar to that used
in hydraulic mining in which provision is
made for turning the tube to any desired
angle, the same being hung on a swivel
joint aud being provided with an extension
or handle for manipulating it. It is sup
ported below the swivel joint by shears
pivoted to the sides of the bow and con
structed to cross and form a rest for a tube
iu front of the bow. This hinged or pivoted
support serves to receive the back thrust
caused by the reactionary pressure of the
water on the tube at its bent or discharg
ing end. Chains worked by windlasses are
attached to tho shears for raising or lower
ing them to suit different angular positions
of the hydraulic tube.
For removing a sand bar, the boat is
brought to the upper end of said bar and
the tube sufficiently lowered to cause the
water that is ejected from it to forcibly re
move a given depth of material from the
surface of the bar, the stern wheel of the
boat at the same time being put in motion
to counteract the back thrust on the boa
by the reactionary pressure of tho water
under discharge on the hydraulic tube.
During this operation, the boat is made to
move down stream with a velocity equal to
the current of the stream until it passes
over the bar. This is continued until the
required depth is reached,
In the operation, the first impulse of the
jet from the tube meets with considerable
resistance; but as the jet continues to flow,
the water alongside of it is put in motion in
the same direction and flows with a velocity
nearly equaljto the jet, thereby reducing
the resistance and increasing the excavating
action of the jet, and producing a forced
current which carries the excavated mater
ial far away from its place of excavation
Mr. Huffer writes that he has no means
with which to introduce his patent, but is
anxious to have a practical test made of its
RINGS AT WASHINGTON.
The Interest of Banks in Legislation Effect
ing Bonded Whisky.
The Sun' Washington special says: The
powerful rings now gathered at Washington
exceed in number and wealth all that have
appeared Here tor eight years. Ihese rings
expect to do their most effective work in the
few remaining weeks of this congress. All
the larse and many of lesser special inter
ests involved in pending or in proposed
changes of the tariff are represented by
active and influential agents, outside and in
side of congress. They have pooled thir
issues and will make common cause. The
navy ring has won the first engagement in
the house. It remains to be seen if the
senate will confirm Kobeson's work. The
great ring of land-grabbers has succeeded,
by the action of the judiciary committee of
the house, not only in preventing any leg
islation adverse to this immense interest,
but also in keeping the subject from get
ting before the house at all.

desperate effort. The real truth in this case
does not appear npon the surface. The

Capt. Kortz and men made every effort
Tuesday afternoon to return to the ship,
but the heavy sea on the beach prevented
them doing so. On Wednesday the boat
succeeded in getting to the ship, and when
Mr. Wells left all but seventeen had been
landed, and the rest were probably landed
that evening. The ship is broken amidships
Her bow is in eighteen and stern in twenty
feet of water. She lies heading to the south
east. Mr. Wells thinks that the ship lies
about one-quarter of a mile from shore, and
will be a total loss. Wells and Steinberger
were the on'y passengers. During the two
days they were on the wreck, the only food
they had was a few crackers.

Captain Kortz and his- officers, in doing all
that' could be done to rescue them form the

are about 83,000,000 or 84,000.000 gallons

on warehousing certificates. About 20,000.

It is undoubtedly true that the banks are
seriously embarassed by the accumulation
of these discounted certificates, and they
can get no relief from the speculators who
put them np as collateral security. The
banks, therefore, are practically the owners
of the whisky and their situation' is ren
dered more critical because they will be
compelled, for self protection, to ray the
tax on this stock as it becomes due. The

Oneonta, New York, Jan. 6th.
Early last summer Messrs. B. J. Kendall & Co., of
Knoaburh Falls, Vt., made a contract with the pub-
Jishcra oi the Pres3 for a half column advertisement
for one year setting forth the merits of KendaMV
spavin Cure. At the same time we secured from thsr
arm a quantity of books, entitled Dr. Kendall's
Treatise on the horc and his Diseases, which we are
giving to advance paving subscribers to the Press as
a premium .
Aiout the time the advertisement first appeared
in this paper Mr. P. G. Schennerhorn. who resides
near Colliers had a spavined horse. He read the ad
vertisement ana coinjiuaed to-test the emcacy of the
remedy, although his friends laughed at his cred
ulity. He bouirht a bottle of Kendall's Spavin Cure-
and commenced nsing it on the horse in accordance
witn ine directions, ana nc miormea us th s week,
that it effected such a complete cure that an expert
horseman, who examined the animal recently could
tind no trace of the spavin or the place where it had.
been located. Mr. Sehermerhorn has since secured a
copy of Kendall's Treatise on the Horse and his Dis
eases, which he prizes very highly and would bo
loth to part with at any price, provided he could
not obtain another copy. So much for advertising:

Fremont, Ohio, Jan. 25tH.
Dr. B. J. Kendall & Co., Gents : I think it my
duty to nastier you my thank for benefits and profits
which I have derived from your invaluable and far
Earned Spavin Cure . My cousin and I had a valuable
stallion, worth $4000 which had a very bad spavin
and was pronounced by four eminent veterinary
surgeons, beyond any cure, and that the horse was
done for ever. As a last resort I advised my cousin
to try a bottle of Kendall's Spavin Cure. It had
magical effect, the third bottle cured it and the
horde is as well as ever. Dr. Dick of Edinburgh, the
eminent veterinary snrgcon was an uncle of mine,
and I take great interest in assisting his profession
