Crane has been selected as his successor. Thia looks as if Marcus still has a good-sized presi dential bee buzzing In his bonnet. AMONG other things the Legislature did, at Its special session, it memorializ ed Congress in favor of the Brownlow road bill which, if passed, will bring an apportionment of •250,000 to Oregon, and also in favor of increasing salaries of rural mail carriers from $600 to »800 per year. A bill appropriating »40,- 000 for Indian War Veterans, to make up the deficiency caused by an act of the Legislature at its regular session, was defeated. This was entirely wrong, for it had much merit. i » N T he Williamsburg bridge, the sec ond to be built across East river, New , York, and which connects the boroughs ULf Manhattan and Brooklyn, is now '••W travel. Thia structure, con- don on which was begun Oct. 28, is about a mile above the Brook lyn bridge, which it greatly resembles in / type and appearance, though It is much larger. Its length between terminals is 7200 feet and Its width 118 feet, the Brooklyn bridge being only 85 feet wide. The bridge proper coet about •11,000,000, and the condemning of land for approaches brought the total coet to about •21,000,000. A ccording to appearance« the great lumber combine of the Pacific Coast is practically a thing of the past. The concern that has made over »1,- 000,090 for its members of late was dis rupted when the California members stated finally that they would not sign a new agreement. They announced a short while later that they had made contracts for export after the first of January below the combine scale ot •14. The present agreement expired January 1, and after that date the greatest lumber war the Pacific Coast has ever witnessed will be inaugurated, f the disagreement is not a fake. J ames D. R ichardson of Tennessee who was the Democratic leader of the House in the 56th and 57th Congresses, believes the year 1904 bright with hope for the Democratic party. In an inter view at Washington he declared that with the financial question out of the way, and his party united as in years gone by on great doctrines, he can see no reason why the Democratic party should not sweep the country. He says a majority of the white people of the United States desire to see the Demo cratic party triumph on the broad gen eral principal of tariff reform, busi nesslike economy in public expendi tures, opposition to the present auto cratic dynasty of the White House and honesty in foreign relations. T here I s every prospect that the wages of hundreds of thousands of workingmen will be cut more or lees during the year 1904. Leading officials of the United States Steel Corporation say that beginning January 1st about 90 per cent of the employes of the cor poration will suffer wage reductions ranging from 5 to 20 per cent. This reduction will affect about 150,000 workmen in the various grades. The remaining 10 per cent of the employes are members of the amalgamated iron, steel and tin workers. The fin ance committee of the Steel Corpora tion has, it is understood, under con sideration the dismissal of many high- salaried employes. C ongressmen , as well as members of legislatures, find the mileage graft very profitable. It seems that they allowed themselves traveling expenses for both the extra and regular w-saions of Congress, whereas only one trip was made to Washington for -both of them. They are allowed 20 cents a mile for traveling expenses in going to and re turning from Washington once duriDg a session of Congress. The railway charges average little more than 2 cents a mile, and Pullman car charges and meals would not bring the cost alto gether up to more than 5 cents a mile. The old allowance of 20 cents a mile was fixed when traveling expenses were much higher than at present, so that congressmen are able to make about 15 cents a mile as clear gain or profit out of their traveling account. But this Is not all. The practice seems to be for railroads to offer passes to mem bers and for members to accept the gratuity which partakes of the nature of a bribe. The Tillman case and the disclosures made by Congressman Baker, of Brooklyn, in returning a ass, have served to put the run of congressmen under the strongest kind of suspicion of traveling at the expense of the railroad companies. Not the least important of the bills enacted by the Legislative Assembly was that which provides for the exe cution of Pleasant Armstrong, the convicted and condemned murderer of Minnie Ensminger,near Baker City, cn Christmas night, 1902. This is the first time in the history of the State ot Oregon that it has been found necessary to legislate a man to the gallows, and the second time it has been done on the Pacific Coast, and perhaps I d the United States. The pass tge of this bill was neces sary under the peculiar conditions and circumstances of the case as they existed. The warrant of execution under which Armstrong was to have been hanged was issued under the law which was in effect when the crime was committed. The legislature, at the last regular session, passed a bill which provided for the execution of all murderers at the Penitentiary. After the case had gone through the Supreme Court upon appeal from the conviction, the question then arose as to whether Armstrong could be hang ed at the Penitentiary under the new law, and the Attorney-General ren dered an opinion bolding that he could not, as this course would be in violation ot the Federal statutes, which declare the new law ex post facto in the case, and that ft would be deemed an aggravated punishment to transfer the condt tuned man from Baker county to tbe prison and exe cute him under the new law. There fore, and in accordance with thD opinion, Judge Eakin sentenced Arm strong under the warrant issuer under the old law, and condemned him to be banged in Baker county and by the sheriff. Action was then threatened to secure the release of Armstrong by habeas corpus proceedings, upon tbe ground that there was no law inexis tence under which he could be legally executed. The sentiment in Baker county was so strong against Arm strong that the authorities feared mob violence in case he should be allowed to escape punishment under so frail a technicality, and to avoid tne di grace of a possible lynching and to cocvince the people that the ends of justice would be met in bis case so that they would have more confidencen in tbe law in tbe future, this course was deemed tbe most ad visable to be pursued UDder the cir cumstances. Tbe new law, which was enacted at tbe special session, in the main reaffirms the law of 1903, but contains a single provision which requires that all condemned murderers, whose crimes were cimmitted and who were convict« d under warrants issued prior to the taking effect of the new law, should be sen enced under the old law and executed in tbe county in which the crime was committed and by the sheriff. This action, it is thought, will have tbe effect of covering tbe case exactly, dispel all danger or likeli hood of a lynching, and have a tend ency to'Instill into t e minds of tbe people more confidence in the law mak ing body of tbe statq. . --------- J----- - An Important Industry. The special edition of the Oregon Daily Journal, printed Dec. 17th, was a splendid one. It said of Oregon’s stock interests: The value of Oregon’s livestock for the year 1903 will amount in round numbers to Ml,488,914. These figures show that the livestock interests of the state are rapidly showing an in crease. There is no better place in the country for the maintenance of live stock than the State of Oregon, aDd this is the reason why each year the total value of the sleek ot the state is growing larger. In Eastern and Southeastern Oregon the conditions are favorable for the grazing of large herds, and men en gaged in the raising of stock have be come wealthy in that section io the past few years. Latest statistics show that there are 734,742 cattle In the state, which at the present market price are valued at •18,368,550. The horses in the state will number 245,638, and are easily worth •12,231,900 Of sherp there are 3,926,724, at a fair market value of •7,853,448. The estimate of the livestock of the state shows: Cattle, 734,542; value •18,368,550. Horses, 245,742; value •12,231,900. Mules, 7786; value,»428 230. Sheep, 3,926,724; value »7,853,448.

At ordinary times the plain at the foot of the ridge is an empty, bare stretch, covered with short turf and forming a pleasant ground for a morn ing's canter, but at Christmastlde, 1002, it will be covered with the snowy camps of the viceroy of India and his principal lieutenants and adjutators and will be resplendent with the bright eastern surroundings by which such camps are always framed. The vice regal camp will be In the center of all, flanked on the south by the camps of the governor of Bombay and of the commander in chief of India and the generals of the four commands, and on the north by those of the governor of Madras and the lieutenant governors, chief commissioners and agents to tbe governor general throughout India. At the back of the central camp 18 being constructed a permanent rest deuce for the viceroy's occupation. This will hereafter fill a much needed want at Delhi—viz, a guest house for distinguished guests and visitors, The press camp will be on the left of the state camps and one visitors' camp on the right while another will be outside the Kashmir gate of the city. All the camps and the durbar plain will be connected by the light railway which is being constructed for the convenience of visitors, and ail will be illumiiiated by electric light. Proceeding along the Grand Trunk road and beyond the canal ar. other plain Is seen to the north, more low lying and more taire than the stretches of the old cantonment.

It will Lt the scene of a gorgeous ceremony, in which no element of oriental fionip will be lacking.

Joyous crowds, all will tie there and will make a picture of display end splendor such as has never been seen even I d India. The amphitheater in which the dur bar will be held is somewhat different in shape from that coQstructc*d in 1877 and bas bien built in a horseshoe form, with the imperial dais at the upper end instead of In the center, as then. Inside the wedges of seats will be a circular road, by which the viceroy will drive up to the dais, and In front and behind the amphitheater will be drawn up the troops which will lend military splendor to the display. The road from the viceroy's camp to the amphitheater will pass through the principal bodies of troops encamped at Delhi; the caval ry camp, however, wHl be farther up the Grand Trunk road, near Badllki- savih, where the battle of June 8. 1857, was fought, anil on the nearer side of it will be the cairp of the ruling chiefs of the Punjab.

The ridge has looked down upon many pageants and historic scenes, but for Englishmen the ridge will always be best remembered in connection with the gallant stand made on it during the months of June, July and August, and till Sept. 14, 1857, by the British forces against the immense array of mutinous soldiers who had gathered around Delhi and the last representa tive of thé once glorious line of effete mogul emperors. Through Fire Heroic Conduct A Young Texas Girl Glory O'Shane of Marble Falls, Tex, recently distinguished herself by her heroic conduct in rescuing nn aged and helpless woman from death In a forest fire. Fire broke out suddenly in tho great cedar forest which covers the mountains of the Colorado a short dis tance from Marble Falls. A great num ber of laborers who were engaged in cutting timber were camped in the brake with their families. Some of them were living under temporary ce dar shacks and others In tents. When the alarm was given and it be came evident that the lire was beyonu control, the people started for the adja cent open ground. The frightened people were flying to ward tbe fields, with the rapidly ap proaching Are close upon them, when some one happened to think of Mrs. Riners, an aged invalid, who was known to tie In one of the cabins. Glo ry O'Shane knew that the old woman was alone in her cabin, her son Paul having gone into town with other tiin- bermen early in the day. “We must help her!” the girl shouted to the terrified people who were fleeing from the flames. Several men paused to look back at the burning forest, shook their beaus, then continued running, advising tbv girl to do the saute. But her heroic spirit prevailed. Before any one could interfere the brave girl had turned around and was running toward the sea of tire. Paul Riners. tbe only son ot the old woman in peril, was at Marble Falls. Tbe In stant he saw the black cloud of smoke rising above the cedar forest he mount ed his horse, and, being fully awure of the danger to the women and children In the camps, he rode under whip and spur to rescue his mother. Ho led the crowd of citizens who were crowding the road to the fire, but he was a mile or more away when Glory O'Sbane was running toward the cabin where his Invalid mother was staggering about in helpless terror. When Glory came near the cabin, the first glance made her shudder with horror. The bouse appeared to be en veloped in flames. A puff of wind raised the cloud of smoke, and she saw the old lady clinging to the 81de of the door, a faithful hound tugging at her dress. The girl could see a white horse plunging about under a tree in the yard. She had only paused an Instant for breath and would doubtless have turned back If she had not seen the' poor, helpless woman staggering in the doorway. It seemed madness to go far-1 ther, for the roof of the cabin was on WHEN MOTHER CANS There fs a way of trfrling that coats a heap of money.
