THE GREAT RACE.
HOW THE "if. T. JBERALD" WAS BEATEN
BT THE ,'BtJlXEnN,' AXD "CALL."
From tie Saa Fraadjoo Bnllatla of Oct, 13.
"When the Modoc war grew into im
portance we dispatched a correspond
ent to the front, who accompanied the
troops on the important scouts and for
warded with unparalleled rapidity de
scriptions of the exciting events which
"he witnessed. all'ot which
Kwere received at this office hours in ad
vance of official and rival telegrams.
Gen. Davis had a large detachment of
cavalry engaged in the courier service,
and at the time of Jack's capture was
most anxious to anticipate private tele
grams with the news, and yet the event
was not officially known until six hours'
after its receipt by the Bulletin. These
facts are fresh in the public mind. Ev
erybody remembers how the boasting
Chronicle used to take our telegrams,
word for word, sae the signature, in
variably striking that out. The same
kind of enterpiise gave the Bulle
tin and Call the advantage during the
war, and to its close enabled us to pub
lish the first account of the Court-martial
at Fort Klamath, which was one of
the longest telegrams ever sent over
THE EXECUTION OF THE MODOCS. '
But the crowning feature in the his
tory of enterprising journalism in this
State occurred on the occasion of the
execution of the Modoc murderers at
Fort Klamath, and resulted iu a com
plet,c i victory for the Bulletin and Call.
Realizing the value of the first news
o! the tragic affair, these papers pro
cured the services of Wm. M. Turner,
a well-known Oregon journalist, who
proceeded to the Fort with letters of
introduction to two officers only, and
performed his work incog, as far as the
other correspondents Were concerned.
Our correspondent occupied himself
about the Fort for several days in the
guise of a teamster, and was scarcely
noticed by the knights of the quill who
represented the Herald, with the Chro
nicle as its tail-piece; least of aU was
he presumed to be a fellow-journalist,
and one of ability at that. During
this period of quiet observation Mr.
Turner secretly cleared the Dead Indi
an trail an error; it was tbeRancharie
Trail. Ed. Sentinel) between Fort
Klamath and Jacksonville, for the use
of his eonrier. Fox, of the Bierald,
and Sbaw, of the Chronicle, combined
against all the other reporters, present
or expected. With three riders and
thirteen horses they prepared to send
their joint account of the execution to
Jacksonville by the usual road. Mr.
Turner kept his own counsel and sent
his graphic description of the affair by
a courier who followed the trail he had
cleared, thereby beating the Herald
Chronicle combination by 30 minutes,
and securing the control of the wires
at Jacksonville. The only news from
the scene of the execution published
in the New York Herald and the S. F.
Chronicle, of .October 4th, was written
on the day previous to tho execution,
and related to interviews and prepara
lions for the coming event.
IIOW THE CONTEST "WAS WON.
The above outline of tbu struggle to
forward the first news of the Modoc
execution affords the reader a clear idea
of how the Bulletin-Call correspond,
ent eclipsed his rivals, but the details
are of such interest that we cannot for
bear presenting them. The Herald
sent Mr. Fox to this coast for the ex
press purpose of securing the first news
of the Modoc execution, and to that
end furnished him with a liberal supply
of money and letters of credit, and in
structed him to win at all hazards.
This gentleman made a sort of triumph
al march through the country to Fort
Klamath and fixed his arrangements
for tho contest. The Chronicle man
went up there a short time before the
execution. But no representative ot
the Bulletin and Call and Assoiiattd
Press appeared visible to the Herald
man. Naturally enough he looked up
on the Chronicle man as a good lever,
and therefore combined with him in
about this manner The Herald to foot
the carrier bills and have h:s dispatch
forwarded first one line of carriers to
take in the dispatches to both papers.
Of course this cheap arrangement suit
ed the sensational journal, and so it
was agreed that the Herald's dispatch
should go first and the Chronicle's sec .
ond upon the arrival of the courier at
the telegraph office in Jacksonville.
Tho representatives of those two pa
pers wondered why this paper and oth
ers were not represented at Klamath,
and seemed to feel great anxiety about
our welfare. Things didn't look right
THE BULLETIN AND CALI.
Had rlways been in the van and must
be keeping quiet about the race. Ann
Herald man fixed his courier line to his
entire satisfaction, and the Chronicle
man, as the tail-piece, necessarily ap
proved it in all respects. The execu
tion came off, and the moment it was
over the Herald courier sped away and
the tbree-meo-tbirteen-horse line was
in full opention. The, courier had
scarcely left the camp when Mr. Turner
our representative, called up Ki. Mat
thews, the famous rider, and sent him
away, Mr. Matthews rode to Jackson
ville and delivered the Bulletin-Call
dispatch himself, following the trail.
He left the scene of the execution at
10.30 a. ix.t and reach Jacksonville at
5:25 p. m., riding a distance ot 92 miles
in tho remarkable time of 6 hours and
55 minutes, over a mountail trail ot
more than usual roughness, and using
only three. animals for the entire trip,
making 42 miles in exactly two hours
on the last stretch. Considering the
naturo of about fifteen miles of the
route, which wa3 obstructed by fallen
logs, huge boulders and deep ruts, this
may be reckoned as the most extraor
dinary feat of horsemanship ever per
formed on the Pacific coast. The com
bination courier readied Jacksonville
half an hour later. With 13 horses
and 3 riders they were beaten by one
rider with three horses half an hour.
Shooting of Ex-Senator Pomcroy
by AI. F. Conway.
The following is the most complete
account we have seen of the affair indi
cated by the above title. Conway was
once a Representative from Kansas :'
"Washington, Oct. 11. Ex Senator
Pomery of Kansas was shot this after
noon by Martin F. Conway ot Kansas.
Senator Pomeroy was walking up New
York avenue, and when near the corner
of Fourteenth street met Conway, who
drew a large revolver within five or six
feet of Pomeroy, firing three shots at
him, one of which took effect in the
right breast, just below the nipple.
Conway then put up his pistol and
started to walk off. P. Stillitizon and
Addison, who witnessed the shooting,
immediately stopped Conway, Addison
exclaiming, "Stop, sir I You have shot
a man, and you must give your reasons
for so doing." Conway replied : " He
ruined myself and family." He then
accompanied that gentleman to the sta
tion house. Pomeroy, vv ho had fallen
to the pavement, was assisted to a car
riage and driven to his house in K
6treet, near Fourteenth, where physi
cians were immediately summoned.
Drs. Bliss and Yerdi made an exam
ination of Pomeroy's wound and pro
nounced it only slight. One ot the
balls passed through his hat, another
through his overcoat, and tho third one
through his clothing, striking the breast
but only penetrating tho skin. Pome
roy asserts that he never had any con
troversy with Conway, and has not Che
slightest idea of the cause of his attack
upon him. He says Conway met him,
a few days ago, for tho first time in
about two years, and saiJ, abruptly: "I
am out of money." To which Pome
roy replied: "I know, then, how to ap
preciate your situatiou, for I am nearly
in that condition myself." This was
all that passed between them at this
interview, and to-day not a word was
spoken before Conway commenced fir
ing. Pomeroy is emphatic in stating
that he never had any controversy or
ground for difficulty with Conway.

PEOrOSED CHANGE IN THE MANNEB SEN
ATOE ilOETON's PEOPOSITIOX.
New Yoek, October 6. Senators
Morton, Carpenter and Bayard, mem
bers of the Committee on Privileges
and Elections of the Senate ot the Unit
ed States, to-day closed their confer
ence, which bad been held for the past
week m this city. , .With reference to
the moJo of electing President, the
substanco of their deliberations thus
far involved the following propositions:
First, to abolish Electoral Colleges.
Second, That the President and Vico
President be elected by the people vot
ing directly for candidates.
Third, That each State shall be di
videdinto as many Districts as the
State is entitled to Representatives in.
Congress, to bo composed of contigu.
ous territory, compact in form, atfd as
nearly even in population as may be,
and the person having the highest num
ber of votes for President in each Dis
trict shall receive the vote of that Dis.
trict for President, jvhich shall amount
to one Presidential vote. That each
State shall be entitled to two Presiden
tial votes at large, which shall bo count
ed for tho person having tha highest
number of votes in tho whole State.
Fourth, That the person having tho
highest number of such Presidential
votes in the United Slates shall bo the
Filth, These provisions are to be ap.
plicable to tho election ot Vice Presi
dent. Sixth, Congress shall have power to
provide for holding and conducting
such elections for President and Vice
President, and to establish tribunals for
tho decision ot any contest as to tho
vote in any District or State, and mako
regulations governing the proceedings
ot those tribunals.
By the adoption of tho District sys
tem of voting by "the people directly
for candidates, with two Presidential
votes in the State at large, and the plu
rality rule for determining the result,
the election is brought as nearly homo
to the people as can be. It will mako
an election by the nation as one com
munity, and still recognize States as
such, while it enables the people iu
each District in a State to express their
will, so that hereafter a Slate need not
cast a solid vote, as under the present
system. It tends to dispense with tho
convention vv hich is now necessary in
order to form an electoral ticket for
each Slate, and it enlarges the liberties
of the individual voter, who can vote
for any citizen he may select for Presi
dent or Vice President. By the plu
rality 6ystcm the election will always
be final, and there can bo no necessity
for an election by the House of Repre
sentatives, which is so much objected
to. The plurality rule has beeradopt
ed successfully in all the States ot the
Union except four, in tho election of
State officers, and it generally prevails
in the election of members of Congress.
Itf none of these States where it has
been tried is there any disposition to
Other questions wero considered in
connection with the votes in States and
Districts, and providing for the exigen
cy of death or resignation of the Pres
ident after election and before inaugu
ration. These are suggestions which
have been considered, but of course no
conclusion could be arrived at.
THE Or.GANIZATION NOT TO TAKE TART
Mr. Dudley S. Adams of Iowa, Mas.
ter of the National Grange, was on a
brief v isit to Washington last month,
and while there stated that the reports
circulated throughout the country to
the effect that the organization will tako
a prominent part in politics is a popu
lar misapprehension, and that the Con
stitution ot the Order prohibits the dis.
cussion of either political or religious
topics in the Granges. Wherever the
Granges have held political meetings
their actions have invariably been reg
ulated by the State Granges. Mem
bers can do just as they please outside,
but inside they are all Patrons of Hus
bandry, and nothing more. In regard
to the statement that colored persons
were not to be admitted to Granges,
Mr. Adams says it is not true. Every
Grange must exercise its own discre
tion as to the admission of members.
The institution is silent in regard to
color, and only prescribes that appli
cants must be of good moral character,
must be interested in agriculture, and
must be of a certain age. If a Grange
chooses to admit colored people it can
do so there is nothing in the Consti
tution to prohibit it. The statement
that there are no colored men in tho
Order is incorrect. I myself have been
in Granges where there were colored
members. The prohibition is simply a
local matter, and is settled by a local
