affable hoodlums. And during this Inter

colonel, who had slowly realized that "the

where the cooks were making soup for the

soup burned his Ups a little) murmuring

Next came the Bed river fiasco of 1864,
and through its disasters the colonel ad
vanced to tho commana oi ms ungaue.
This was at Cano river crossing, where
the exultant enemy had interposed to pre
vent our retroot The position was a com
manding one, and Just as our attack upon
it hod begun, the brigade commonder
dropped with a shattered leg. The colonel
galloped to the front and center, where he

tntod the staff of our commanding general
were many who had been Imported from
beyond the seas, inese "
barons and counts and princes and things,
but in doferenoo to existing prejudices they
consented to be known by their family
names, which were as unspeakable as the
more or loss Volga tongue in which they
disapproved of the country that paid them

had never been out
TOan oa of M flailing omtawa ay
pnarod before the colonel with a message
of congratulation from tho general, the
contrast waa vivid. Tha eminence usually
oooupled by the eolonel's wtg was still
eooosaled by tbe ru& bandanna and sur
mounting wis was a torn and bedraggled
straw hat which had besn picked up on
the Said. A short hall bad glvcu the
colonel ao opportunity to rcdys hla mus

eration had left upon his grim features re-

which our newspaper friends tempted the
unwary. Just as the eolonel had mur
mured querulously to the adjutant, "One
vt tbara d d Cossacks b'gosh I" the
gentleman from the steppes baited,
brought bis heals together with a snap,
made a salute that might have reopened
the eyes of the happily defunct Prudurk'k
and then, With a profusion of bows and
the accent of SvengnJl, fired off a dosen
phrases In French. The adjutant trans
lated, Old Blook was to be a brigadier!
The colonel, wbo had been steadily regard
ing tho apparition, squeaked "AdJ'tlnt,
tull him to tell the glneral much obleoged
b'goahl" Then, with a stiff salute,
gasped something like "Oh reservoir!"
and disappeared Into his tent
When the adjutant, after a mapeotrul
knock against the tout pole, looked within
to congratulate his chief on the attain
ment of the general's star, and also upon
the other agmsnble fact that the serene
highness had tax on Itmlf off, the straw

and he was board to whisper, "The little

The adjutant on tiptoe stepped away.
We had Joined the Army of the Potomac,
and Karly's manouverlngs had brought us
Into the smiling valley of tho Shenandoah.
The oalonol a general now waa with us
In all tbe glories of his twinkling stars
and a new wig. To the hint that he
should crovlde himself with a staff com
mensurate with his exalted rank be had
nulled as his lank flmiers harrowed his
mustache: "Don't want no aids I The

The evening of the loth or uotoixir,
1864, the night before tho battle of Cedar
Creek, was quiet enough. But It Decani
very noisy before daylight fur the people
Who had the security of the army In charge
had allowed themselves to be surprised.
We formed line In the mystifying mist of
tbe dawn, and, led by the general, moved
against an enemy whom we could not seo,
but whoso presence within our lines was
accounted for by the flanking fire which
struck us. But the brigade held together.
The sun suddenly dispelled the fog, and
now columns of the enemy could be seen
marohlna to our left
All at once we became aware that a body
of his troops was close upon our rear,
"Bear rankabout faoel" yelled the gen
eral, and thus we fought, facing both
wave, for some exciting inomeuu. An
English gentleman, wbo belonged to the
color company and who alwnys wore tho
bottoms ot his crooned and tattered trou
sers turned un. said tbe "'olo thing wi
like a bloody sangwlteh," but ho dropped
with a sudden shiver as one bullet pierced
his heart, wbllo at the some Instant an
other snapped his spine. Then orders
came to fall back, when we simply elbow
ed our war throutrh swarms of the enemy.
There was no stamnedo. for we know that
tha "old man's" eve was upon ua But
when we had oome to whore we could
touch noon the rest ot the slowly receding
mass, our chief waa not In his accustomed
place. And throughout that gloomy morn
ing the men, in too pauses oi toe ugnt,
would lament that Sheridan was away
and that "the robs had sot Old Blook !
When Oeneral Sheridan rode on tho field
and the word was passed that the uriny
was to move to the attack, the testy old
gentleman who commanded the corp" nml
whose hirsute adornment hod won 11 liu
the name of Brick top, remarked thin "No
one would now give a chew of tobacco to
Insure tbe success that was certain."
Content took the place of doubt, and while
dispositions were being mode on the
flanks, men In the center read newspapers;
some made entries In their diaries and oth
ers took a nap. The enemy assaulted, but
was repulsed. And then some ot us went
to sleep again. The command, "For
ward 1" pealed from voice and bugle and
our people advanced. The enemy resisted,
but In vain, and soon we came In plain
view of the position from whioh wo had
been swept in the morning.
More than 80 years have gone by, and
the mellowing hand ot time has softened
the asperities, but this Is what we saw as
we passed over the fluid of tho early strug
glea row of half clad bodies. Most of
thorn were dead, but some of the others
hailed ua faintly as we charged by.
Just as the sun sank our victorious
army went Into oamp on the ground where
we had slept the night before. At once a
half dozen who belonged to his old regi
ment started back to hunt up the general.
Somo hoped to find blm yet alive, others
that be might have been taken prisoner,
which bitter waa Just a shade bettor than
being killed. As we drew near to the ar
ray of half stripped corpses we heard loud
notes of walling, mingled with impreca
tions, and then recognized the voice of the
general's negro servant. Another mo
ment brought us to what we, at first
thought waa our old friond's corpse. Hit
boots) were gone. His coat had been taken.
And the poor old darky sobbed with tears
and groans and curses, "Doy done tuk dat
new wig I" The adjutant knelt beside the
body and placed his ear close to the heart
Than he took up one long, lean and olanv
my band and gazed sadly on the gory fear
tores there was a horrid gash across the
face and a small blue bole In the breast
The general's eyelids trembled. )le opened
them and strove to spook, but only a fuint,
Whistling sound oaiue through the swollen
lips A few drops from a canteen served
to afford relief . Then the old man smiled
for the second time and the adjutant
could Just hear the last whisper, "Tell

of altiu that the Mitcliell-Mo-
Bride faction are willing in Mariou
county, to concede to the opposition
the state ticket, in consideration of
being permitted to name the legis
lative ticket. Whether auy such
proposition or combination is con
templated in tbe ranks of the
Republican party makes little de
ference. The claim of the Mcliride
Mitchell faction has nothing to
justify it. It is timplj notice thtt
Mr Mitchell or some one be n trues
will be a candidate for the Repub
lican tenatorship. Now it is not
certain a Republican senator can
be elected. The counties that were
carried for liryan, in Oregon, will
control the next legislature, if the
Dryan vote holds together.
'The managers lor Mcliride
tole the senatorship from Dolpb,
while the Mitchall managers tried
to steal it with the votes of silver
Republicans in the last legislature
but were bulked by the silver Re
publicans refusing to give Mitchell

time for the Republicans of Oregon
to elect a senator as a Republican
upon a Republican platform or let
the Rrvau iieoule name the man.
The policy of the McKmley admin-
istrttion is gold standard, aa repre

PARTY FINANCIAL DIVISION.
The llillsboro Independent ap
preciates the political situation and
the great issue thereof. It tiys:
"It mskes little difference whether
silver coitisge was a direct Issue
this year or not, the democratio
successes will be claimed in the in
tercets of free silver and another
supreme ettort oy souna money
men will have to be made n US
and 1900. One or two facts from
the recent election should he noted.
The republican party is the only
orcanlzed bodv of voters that stands
lor sound money, ani second, sound
money candidates cannot be chosen
for office in those elates here there
are divisions in the ranks of its ad
vocates. Sound money needs all
the votes on one tally sheet lhat
can be mustered.'
We do not bolive McKinley lust
any gold votes. There are "on di
visions in the ranks of its advo
cate." It was the silver
men that scattered thoir foro and
weakoned the'.r cause by senseless
divisiona and jealousies over party
names when they should have been
united in one common cause on
the one great Issue.
Corvallls Gazotte Rsp: "From
certain quarters we bear appeals
or harmony in tbe republican
ranks of Oregon. Seridus looking
gentlemen are solemnly singing
that dolefully peaceful hymn,

"how sweet is unity. Ana mey
don't know how funny they are.
The republican party in Oregon is
doing very well, thank you. It Is
only those wlu are out of harmony
with the party tbat are so loudly
clamoring for harmony. 'The reg
iment is out of step with me,' cries
the limping soldier, but his com
plaint is unheeded, and tbo-w who
hear hiui only smile. The repub
lic tn party of Oregon is not worry
inn about harmony. Those who do
not like ils songs, need not sing
them. Th party is too big lo miss
tuneless enmplrtiiiers, or to bo wor
rind oy them."
