couple were the recipients of Jwarm con
gratulations, and then refreshments were
served. The X. oP. band shortly be
fore 10 o'clock tendered the happy couple

Southern Pacific Engineers.
Oaxlaxd, CaL, Jan. 29. The local
ledge of the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers 13 on the anxious seat tonight.
Chief Arthur, the national leader of the
organization, was expected to come on
the evening overland train, but did not
arrive. He is now expected on any train,
but bis whereabouts is not known. He is
having a vote polled on the entire system,
from El Paso, Ogden and Portland to San
Francisco, on the question of ordering a
general strike if the Southern Pacific
company will not recede from the new
Echedule put into tffect the first of the
year. Such a strike cannot be ordered
unless two-thirds of the entire member
ship consents. The result of a general
strike of engineers depends entirely upon
the attitude of the men who lost their
places in tho great American Railway
Union strike of last July. A. J. Roberts,
of the local branch of that organization,
said last night that nothing would bo
done to interfero with the success of a
strike by the engineers, as organized
labor is now at stake, and if another fight
came, all would unite to make a success
to overthrow the power of corporations.
The American Railway Union will fur
nish no "scabs," ho says, and is of tho
opinion that Cebs and Arthur will uuito
Jorces in ualiiornia early in the spring
and make one of the greatest national
etnkes ever dreamed of by man.

look much better than any trees of a

1S93, thero wero over 150 pioneers
present, at which meeting Stephen
Staats delivered tho opening address,
alter which Hon. G. W. Riddle was
elected president of the society and H.
C. Stanton secretary. Several short ad
dresses were made by pioneers present,
and an enjoyable time was had.
The next reunion was held at the fair
grounds in September, ISJ4, at which
meeting Stephen Staats was elected pres
ident and lea Rico secretary. This
meeting was not as well attended as the
previous one, probably on account of the
rather late call for a meeting. The
present president of the society will make
a call early in the spring for pioneers
living in Roseburg and vicinity, and all
citizens interested in the success of this
association, to make arrangements
whereby the meeting next June may be
a highly enjoyable one to all who may

Cleveland Gives His Ideas on the
Washington, Jan. 28, Tho provident
today sent to congress the following mes
To the senate and house of representa
tives: In my last annual message I com
mended to tho serious consideration of
congress tho condition of our national
finances, and in connection with the sub
ject indorsed a plan of currency legisla
tion which at that time seemed to furnish
protection against impending danger.
This plan has not been approved by con
gress. In tho meantimo the situation
has so changed and an emergency now
appears so threatening, I deem it my
duty to ask at the hands of the legisla
tive branch of tho covernraent such
prompt and effective action as will re
store confidence in our financial sound
ness and avert business disaster and uni
versal distress among our people.
The real trouble which confronts us
consists in a lack of confidence, wide
spread and constantly increasing, in the
continuing ability or disposition of the
government to pay its obligations in
gold. This lack of confidence grows to
some extent out of palpable and appar
ent embarrassments attending the gov
ernment under the existing laws in urc-
curing gold and to a greater extent out of
the impossibility of either keeping it in
the treasury or cancellingobligations by
its expenditure after it is obtained. The
only way left open to the government to
procure gold is by tho issue and sale of
bonds. The only bonds that can ba
issued were authorized nearly 25 years
ago and are not well calculated to meet
our present needs. Among other disad
vantages they are made payable in coin,
instead of specifically in gold, which in
existing conditions detracts largely, and
in an increasing ratio, from their desira
bility as investments. It is by no means
certain that bonds of this description can
be much longer disposed of at a price
creditable to the Gnancial character of
The most dangerous and irritating
feature of tho situation, however, re
mains to be mentioned. It 3 found in
the means by which the treasury is de
spoiled of gold, thus obtained without
cancelling a single government obliga
tion and solely for the benefit of those
who find proQt in shippiug it abroad, or
whose fears induce them lo hoard it at
Financial events of the past year sug
gest facts and conditions which should
certainly attract attention. More than
$172,000,00.) in gold has been drawn out
of tho treasury during the year for the
purpose of shipping abroad or hoarding
at home. While nearly $103,000,000 ot
the same was drawn out during the first
10 months of the year, a sum aggregating
more than two-thirds that amount, being
about $09,000,000, was drawn out during
the following two months, thus indicat-
ng a marked acceleration of the deplet
ing process during that lapse of time.
In my opinion the secretary of the
treasury should be authorized to issue
bonds of the government for the purpose
of procuring and maintaining a sufficient
gold reserve, and the redemption and
cancellation of tho United States legal
tender uote and treasury uotes issued
for tho purchase of silver under the law
of July 14, 1390.
We should hi relieved from the humili
ating process of issuing bonds to procure
gold to be immediately and completely
drawn out on these obligations for pur-
Kises not rolateJ for the ccnetit of our
government or our people. Tho princi
pal and intorest of these bonds should be
payablo on their faco in gold, becauso
thero would not probably be anv diffi
culty in favorably disposing ot bonds not
containing this stipulation. I suggest
that tho bonds be issued in denomina
tions of $20 and $50, and their aultiples,
and that they bear interest not exceed
ing 3 per cent per annum. I do not see
why they could not bo mada p.iyabh) 50
years from thoir date, we, of the present
generation, having large amounts to p.iy
if wo meet our obligations, and as long
bonds are tho most salable, the secretary
of tho treasury might well ho permitted,
at his discretion, to receive on tiie sale of
bonds legal tender and treisnry notes to
bo retired, and, of course, when they arc
thus retired or redeemed in gold, they
should bo cancelled.
Theso bjiuls, under tho existing laws,
could bo deposited by the national banks
as security for circulation, and such

That Big Slide.
Dunsmnir News: Mt. Bradley,
whence the avalanche got its start, is a
steep bald mountain nearly two miles
from tho river. As the slide Btarted
down the mountain it gathered strength
and butk in its path. It soon began to
take'brush along and then trees. Plow
ing through a deep and narrow gorgo it
carried trees, rocks and everything in
reach. Great pine trees three and four
feet in diameter were twisted off like
reeds and carried along on the breast o
the avalanche, diving into the snow and
then shooting up into the air until they
struck the opposite bank of the Sacra
mento river more than a mile away from
the starting point. When the avalanche
crossed the river, it was nearly a thou
sand feet wide and fifty feet deep. It
ran up on the bank on the east side of
the river, and dammed the water com
pletely for some time. At Dunsmnir,
over a mile south of the slide, the riyer
ran so low at one time .that a person
could walk across without wetting the
soles of his feet. Tuesday, while the
men were away to their noon meal,
another wild avalanche came down big
ger than the first one and spread out on
top of it, burying the railroad track fifty
or sixty.feet deeper. Two big pine trees,
between four and five feet in diameter,
plowed a trench through the hard snow
and shot across the river, burying one end
into the bank on the other side, mak
ing two bridges across the Sacramento.
To give one en idea of the amount of
snow that came down, besides what went
into the river and was washed away,
there is a body 1200 feet wide, 2000 feet
long and from 50 to 100 feet deep. If the
men bad been at work when the last
came down there would have been over
a hundred of them buried under tha
snow, crushed to death or slid in the
river. "One of the working men went up
oa snowshoes to near where the snow
broke loose. He reports that the snow
was between thirty and forty feet deep
where the avalanche broke off, and the
piece that came down is only a speck
compared to what is left and ready to
start at any time.
