if Marcus still has a good-sized presi­

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.

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

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
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
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.

At ordinary times the plain at the

stretch, covered with short turf and
forming a pleasant ground for a morn­

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,

This will hereafter fill a much needed
want at Delhi—viz, a guest house for

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.

the scene of a gorgeous ceremony, in
which no element of oriental fionip will

and bas bien built in a horseshoe form,
with the imperial dais at the upper

Inside the wedges of seats will be a

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.
A Young
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
