Sali-m, Feb. 17. Mr. Smith of Joseph
ino wants a branch asylem located either
in his county, Douglas or Jackson, and
has a bill appropriating $100,000 for that
purpose Not less than 320 or more than
W0 aeies of land are to be purchased as a
site for it and three citizens a-e to be ap
pointed by the board of asylum commis
sioners to act as supervisors of tho new
building, which is intended to accommo
date about 400 piticnts. Aftr its com
pletion and it is given a proiortionate
share of the patients from the main in
stitution, it will thereafter receive all
patients committed from the cpunties of
Klamath, Lake, Jackson, Josephine,
Douglas, Coos and Curry.

Svlcm, Jan. 31. By all olds th- most
humorous development of the senatorial
fight is the receipt here of a telegram
from Congressman Hermann, reading:
"Stand firm. Keep my name before
convention. I will redeem promises
made hv friends.''
It seems somebody has beer. imnsing
Ion Hermann, and has led him to belevc
.' he is being seriously considered for the
1 United States senate instead vi merely
being a convenience for caucus bolters to
. temporize w, , , un ... ,u, u... ;
on some one they can agree uiou. the

bolters, but ot course liau no ettect on me
congressman's vote, the boys beinj de-
sirous ot having something in sigui tor
redemption of promises before they do
any thing rash.
It seems that somebody has been Un
I posing upon on the Oregonian instead of
ii n t .i t ...... i ..,.,
Mr. Hermann, fr the Utter gentleman
! never sent any such telegram. It only
' shows the desperate straits to which the
reg0nian is reduceJ. It dues not hesi-
tate to do any thing whereby it thinks to

"By the House of Representatives of

We, your memorialist respectf Jlly rep- '
resent, that during the years l-sj and
ISjG war was made upon tho white sett
lers of the territories of Oregon ami
Washington, which, though known
locally as the Yakima and Rogue river
wars respectively, was in fact a collusive
effort on the part of the native race to
exterminate the American settlers of
the north Pacific coast; during which
volunteers were called out to assist the
regular soldiers of the United States and
men and projerty wero furnished by the
settlers of Oregon and Washington .as
found by commission appointed by act of
31th congress chap. 119, sec. 11,, "to the
aggregate amount of $0,011,459.30.
'That this sum found due by the com
mission, consisting of Gen. Rufus Ingals,
U. S. A.,Capt. A.J.Smith, U. S A.,
and L. F. G rover, since governor of
Oregon and United States senator, was
t-tated down arbitrarily and unjustly by
the third auditor of "the United States
treasury the full difference between the
prieesof labor and property on the Pa

at that time to tho scale of the latter,
thus withholding the sum of $3,29:t,543.

"Sec. 4. Whenever such volunteers

Bulletin from the Experiment Sta
tion on the Subject.
Tho discovery of the presence of tho
grain aphis in several field-- adja

bulletin about to bo issued by Prof.
Waohburn, cntomologwt at tho agricul
tural collage and experiment station, says
tho Times. B2side3 tho grain aphis the
bullotin discusses tho Tent Caterpillars,
I ho Pear Loaf Blister, Tho Cloyor Mite
and Koobelo's Resin Wash. 7,003 cop
ies of tho bulletin, which is now in press,
aro now Icing printed, and will lc ready
for distribution in n few days. Concern
ing tho aphis, tho bulletin says:
"Almost all of tho wheat growing dis
tricts in Oregon have been more or less
affected tho past year with the grain
aphis or grain plant louse, causing the
farmer no little anxiety. .Many had
never beforo seen anything like it, aud
wero loth to believe that to the grain had
come a post which they wero practically
P0A'er!c33 to successfully combat. It at
tacked wheat, oats and rye, and the
writer found it on a form of mesquit gras3
within two miles of tho sea-coast, far
from any grain field. Grain badly in-
lested, invariably shriveled, and millers
inform me that Us effect ia easily seen in
tho fact that much of the marketed wheat
ia of an inferior quality.
"It is probable that this pest was in
tho state in limited numbers tho previ
ous year, but unnoticed, and the marvel
ous rapidity with which new individuals
aro produced will account for tho seein-
ngly miraculous invasion. Prof. Fitch,
state entomologist of New York, has
proven, by actual experiment, that tho
females of the grain aphis begin to pro
duce living young when three days old,
at the rate of four a day; hence, in 3
week's time, elimiuating all unfavorable
conditions, tho descendants from one
mother amount to nearly or quite two
millions. The insect is greenish in color,
attacking tho stalks, and later the heads
of wheat, rye and oats. It has a large
bfak with which it extracts the sap.
This absorption of sap is what injures
the berry. As wheat ripens it migrates
to the more succulent oats and when
these ripen it goes to the various grasses.
It spreads over a wide extent of territory
quicker than any insect known.
"Although its existence was. observed
seventejn years before, the grain aphis
first appeared in great numbers in 1SG1,
spreading over New England, ail of New
York except the western pDrtion, north
eastern Pennsylvania and portions of
Canada. Every grain field was invaded
aud many of them thronged. In manv
case3 the wheat crop was reduced one
half, and the oat crop hardly paid for
harvesting. The following year it spread
over the remainine iiortiou of Canada
and into Michigan and then disappeared.
In lSi3 it appeared in ten counties in
California doing considerable damage to
wheat, one man reporting that the yield
of his crop was diminished one-half by
the ravages of tho pest. April 19th and
20th and May 2nd and 3rd large flights
of the winged variety were noticed in
Sacramento, and disappeared after the
rains of May 4th. In nearly every in
stance where the pest has apiearcd it
has been met by a tiost of parasitical and
predaceous insects."

How the Oregonian Defied King
By request tho Plaindealer repub
lishes an editorial of the Oregonian, pub
lished a few years ago, as to the nature
and authority of the caucus. Substitut
ing tho name of J. N. Dolph for that of
J. II. Mitchell it is very applicable yet
to the situation at Salem. Under the
heading, "Tho Pretended Authority of
Caucus," tho Oregonian of September
25, 1882, said:
"It is well known by all who know
anything of the inside history of proceed
ings at Salem, that nearly one-half of the
republicans who arc voting for Mitchell
arc his reluctant and unwilling support
eis. Under stresa of pressure of various
kind3, they are committed to him, and
they only hold on because they have not
been able as yet to see a hopeful deliver
ance. It is absolutely certain that a ma
jority of republican members do not
want him elected; and it is known, more
over, that many of these, including, of
course, no small number of those who
have been casting their vote? for him, are
extremely restive under the combination
of circumstances by which they are held
in so serious a dilemma. To pat it
plainly, they are voting for Mitchell be
cause they do not see their way clear to
a sure result of a different kind. The
unorganized purpose, though it be etrong
in numbers, is weak in positive force,
and even loses Us object through its own
"Several members who do not want to
vote for Mitchell are held to him through
circumstances, which, as they conceive,
do not permit them to bring forward
other candidates; and hence they are
giving their support to the man whom
they would least and last of all prefer.
We are not censuring them for their tim
idity, but do say that courage would be a
better quality. Th man who acts in a
representative character ought not to al
low himself to be made an instrument
for doing a thing which his judgment
condemns acd which be knows his con
stituents would not approve. An aggres
sive faction, contending for its object,
has no scruples. Intimidation is one of
its weapons, and it may be a formidable
one, if it be not met by firmness, or, if
necessary, by defiance. Many men,
however, hesitate to propose or under
take a thing unless thev arc first assured
of the result; so there are those who
keep on voting for Mitchell, though
greatly against their will, onlv because ; Ll
they do not see the way to the sure elec- j Teachers' Examination,

to le a party us.vge and binding law,
though no convention of the republican
t party or other authorized republican
! bodv has ever so declared it. It is a law
invented by profession:-! politicians to
carry their own objects, but the republi
can masses have never approved it as a

Oa innume-ible occasions
thev have, however, denounced it and
refused to approve it results. It is a de-1 FrQm Oregon,

basis of its existence is voluntary associ -
ation for public objects. Caucus requires
the surrender of opinion, independence
and right of choice, an 1 takes away from
the citizen or his reoresentativethe right
of making an effort to carry his own
wews into public action.
"But since caucus in general has not
the sanction of republican authority -
since no authorized republican body has
laid it down as a role of party action-
still less is a partial caucus like that held
at baiem in the, Mitchell interest ot any '

it. No section or faction has authority

caucus held at Salem not only iloes not
bind the members who refused to par
ticipate in it, hut is not binding either in
its moral effect, or by any pretense of
; p-rty law upon those who did participate. :
it is said, however, tuat a minority in
sists on controlling the party. The as-
j scrtion is unfounded. One-third of the
J republican members simply, in
; their opinion, the choice of a senator
I ought not to bo limited to a certain man,
land he the man of all others cspeciallv
I objectionable to a very laigu portion of
I the party. What is ttiey? in J. II. Mitch
ell which should a faction to pro-
claim him as Oregon's "o'lly man"?
When did. I. II. Mitchell rise to
tiiesc unapproachable heights? Iu his
ow n esteem doubtless Ino-g ago, but if tho
republican pa;tv of Oregon actuallv has
I only one man of sufficient intellectual
j force and moral worth to lo senator, and
! that man MiU-holl. it is in a bad way in

! the members who oppose Mitchell aro re
j quired to accept. An intelligent people

Breckinridge and Heard Indnlge fn
Washington, Feb. 1. There was a
most exciting scene in the house of rep
resentatives this morning when Repre
sentative Breckinridge of Kentucky and
Representative Heard of Missouri came
to blows in the center aisle in the middle
of the ball. Representative Heard,
chairman of the committee on the Dis
trict of Columbia, became angered be
cause the Hawaiian question was being
brought foward in the time devoted to
h'is con.mittce, and attempted to seenre
tho floor. The beginning of tho contro
versy was not plain, but suddenly both
members sprang towards each other,
Breckinridge shouting, "You cur, scound
rel, and liar," and striking at the mem
ber from Missouri a fierce blow, which
missed him. Instantly they were seized
by other members, but struggled fiercely
to get at each other, shouting, "Liar."
Representative Pence of Colorado had
Breckinridge by the throat and McCreary
of Kentucky climbed over several seats
and held him by the Eh.nlders. For 3
or 4 minutes there was a wild scrambling,
resembling a football rush, while all the
members of the house poured into the
aisle, and the greatest confusion reigned.
The pounding of the speaker's gavel
could not bo beard, but Crisp's voice
rang abovo the tumult, ehouting "the
sergeant-at-arm3 will arrest tho mem
bers," and then "the sergeant-at-arms
will bring them before the bar of the
house." Deputy Sergeant-at-arms Isaac
Hill rushed down the aisle, bearing the
great mace, and followed by bis assist
ants. The two members were brought
up before the speaker's desk, two men
on each side holding their arms, and
Representative Dockery of Missouri
standing behind them. Breckinridge
was violently red in the face, while
Heard, who is a slender man, wa3 ashen
pale aud trembling like a leaf. In the
course of his explanation to the house,
Breckinridge practically challenged
Heard, and demanded personal satisfac
tion. Both Heard and ttreckinridge
were forced to apologize to the house.
Expulsion proceedings are unlikely.
Breckinridge aud Heard haye mado
statements withdrawing all offensivi re
marks, and the whole proceedings havo
been ordered strisfcen from the records.
Breckinridge and Heard shook bands on
the floor of the house, and good feeling
reigns once more.
