Under New Management.
The theater is now under the manage
ment of Will Madson, of the Roseleaf,
he having leased it at an annual rental
of $150. Owing to unavoidable circum
stance?, the theater Ins not been a
paying proposition heretofore, but it is
certainly to be hoped that the circum
stances will le reversed in the fntnre.
The theater 23 the best arranged of any
in the state outside of Port land, and as
Mr. Madircn will book only first-class
attractions it is quite likely that ho will
meet with success.
School Fund Apportionment.
The county school fund will be appor
tioned in April, and the state fund in
Angus:, as uses, and as required bv the
school law. The article in the news
papers relating to the school fund was
somewhat misleading. The article in
question refers only to that part of the
stale school fund jet due the various
counties for the year ISM, and has
nothing to do with either the county or
state fund for the year of 1S95 ; which
will be apportioned as usual and at the
A Fitting; Sequence.
Sun: Congressman Hermann is a
man wbosi election weald give great
satisfaction. But the besses do not
seem to want him. His election would
be a fitting sequence to the example set
in Washington by the election of Con
gressman Wilson ta the senate from that
state. He has served so long in con
gress that he could " step over from the
house to the senate, and fill Mr. Dolph's
seat better than any other man who
could be named from Oregon. He would
protect every great interest olthe state.

Engineers and Officials Agree.
The engineers and the Southern Pacific
officials haye patched up their differences,
says the San Francisco Chronicle. The
dispute is practically settled,) at least,
though one or two more conferences will
be required to arrange all the details.
The members of the committee from the
brotherhood who have been waiting upon
the officials up iu the general office ever
since the new scale of wages went into
effect mads that announcement Thurs
day afternoon after spending several
hours in close conference with General
Jlanager A. K. Towne, General Superin
tendent J. A. Fillmore 'and the other
representatives of the company's inter
ests. The officials refused to corroborate
tbe statement when questioned about
the matter, but remarked that an agree
ment would probably bo reached by
Tuesday. Just what the terms of tbe
agreement are will remain a secret until
the whole matter is settled. It ij known,
however, that the company has agreed
to make certain modifications in that
part of the new wago schedule which
affecti the engineers, and the latter have
riven it their unanimous approval. In

Rapport in Roseburg.
Julian Rapport, tbe New York Tri
bune's correspondent, afoot, around tbe
world, reached Roseburg Saturday even
ing, registering at the Van Houten.
Rapport is enthusiastic in his praise of
Oregon, asserting that in all his journey
from New York to Halifax and across
the continent he has seen no such coun
try as this. Immigration literature
while wildly distributed throughout the
East fails lamentably to portray the
country as it is and the advantages to
accrue from a residence in its bounda
ries. Rapport's itinerary hence inclades
a visit to each and every telegraph station
along the main line from Roseburg to
San Francisco, and from across tbe Pa
cific Asia and Europe and tbencc back
across the Atlantic to New York.

make out in advance his ceitificate of

doubt of being returned and bad his pri

Lord, Lowell and Williams received
all tho republican votc3 Friday, that were
not cast for Dolph for United, States sen
ator. Thero was a slight change in the
situation when, to the surprise of all,
Senator Alley arose and said: ."I an)
authorized to withdraw the name of Hon.
Bmger Hermann from this contest for
the 6enatorship, and I voto for Stephen A
Lowell." The youug man from Umatilla
received tho solid voto of tho Eastern
Oregon men, who are not Dolph men.
except Patterson, of Grant, who voted
for Lord. Senator Alley, who is Mr.
Hermann's manager in this contest, will
give no reasons for his action in with
drawing Hermann's name. A Dolph
man said today: "Alloy withdrew
Hermann's name in tho interest of his
brother-in-law, Harry It. Miller, who is a
dark horse for wuator." Another raid:
"Hermann will get there yet' Another
Dolph man remarked: "That would

The state board of horticulture's bill
met its Waterloo in the senate last week.
This is the bill that was prepared and
presented by the present board. It ap
propriated $6,000 per annum for the
maintenance of the board, gave its
secretary $1,200 per annum, and pro
posed to pay the members of the board
3 per day for the actual time employed,
together with necessary expenses, etc.
In former years tho stato appropriation
for this board was $3,503 per annum.

A Talk With Hermann. j
Washisotov, Feb. 8. Hermann 6aid
today in reference to the withdrawal
of bis namo from the senatorial contest,
that ho hid never entered or authorized
his name to be used, nor had he author
ized a withdrawal. He had simply re
mained aloof from the contest. In an in
terview in the Washington Post today,
he is quoted as follows :
"Tho deadlock has now lasted for
nearly threo weeks, and as the legislature
must expire by constitutional limitation
in about 18 dayp, it is not improbable
that there will be no election. I hardly
think, however, that tho republicans will
allow the stato to co unrepresented in tho
United States senate. I look for somo
action between now and adjournment. I
havo made my position very plain. I
have stated that I would not become n
candidate until it became very plain that
thero was no possibIoN election of the
caucus nominee, Senator Dolph. Sev
eral of my friends have voted for mo and
I havo been requested to ask them not to
do so. Th is I do not feel at liberty to do.
They havo tho right to voto for whom
they please, but their action has
not been at my reqqest. I do not know
how tho struggle will end."

The entertainment given under the
auspices of the Ladies' Guild of the Epls
copal church at the opera houo Friday
evening was one of the most enjoyable
affairs that ever occurred in Rosburg
ino exercises opened by tue singing of
two choruses, sans by about 20 ladies
and gentlemen. Of tbe two choruses
sang the Anvil chorus received the roost
commendation from the audience. Mrs.
Lynn, Mrs. Short of Wilbur and Mrs.
Conover then gave voice each to a boIo,
all of which were received witli much
applause. Edward McKenzie then
played a j iano solo in which he showed
much taste as a musician. Recitations
by Miss Bradley, Miss Ames, in which
they displayed good elecutionary ability,
was next in order. Then Mies Thomp
son discoursed most excellent music on
the violin, accompanied by Mrs. Flint on
the piano. This was a splendid per
formance and received the plaudits of all
present. Then came the Angels Sere
nade by Dollie Snyder and Millie Lan
ders, two girls about 12 years of- age. It
was performed to perfection. They were
accompanied in tbe execution of this
serenade by E. McKenzie on the piano
and Miss Thompson on the violin. Now
came a tableaux by seven ladies, Misses
Lucy Stanton, Ella Boyd, Belle Willis,
Winmo Bitzer, Iula Bradley, Carrie

slow aud learn to peddle, if they prefer
not to see some things in cold type which
arc, and have been done, right here, that
would indicate to the public that some
peoplu are uol just tho pinks they would
like some folks to imagine. Shoes that
fit, should be worn. The editor of the

this grand country. Ho is attending to
his own affaire, and is qui to ablo to do so

puppies trying to get into his soup dish.

vided attention. We may be quietly

Shall the Rich or Poor Rule?
Shall the rich or poor rule? Lazarus
was a beggar, the master a tramn. Dioc-
one3 was a pauper, Socrates was a raendi-
eant. Shall government be for the weak
or strong? These are"momcntous ques
tions. The appeal to every man in
America who depends upon hh hands,
bis skill, or his brains for honest sub
sistance. Thoy appeal to Christianity
and to civilization. They appeal to the
manhood of the age, for we affirm, and
our statement is founded upon the ex
perience of history, and the tendency cf
tbe times, that powers and forces are at
work to undermine our free institutions,
and to establish on tbe soil of liberty a
plutocratic despotism, more absolute and
tyranical tban that which crushed out
ancient civilization, and over-ran the
earth Avith the huns and vandals of
destruction. As nations advance in civil
ization, there has ever been a tendency
to concentrate riches in the hands of a
few, and as the idleclasses increase, these
who produce least consumo the most.
It is this injustice that led to the down
fall of the great repnblic3of antiauitv.
for if labor builds up a ccnotrv. labor
alone can sustain it. Degrade labor and
yon sap the foundation upon which labor
rests. The vandalism which destroyed
ancient civilization was the ripe fruit of
labor degradation. The tendency of tbe
times is to force American labor into the
same degraded condition. Capital- ac
cumulates, and capitalists become mil
lionaires, dress in purple and fine linen
and fare sumptuously every day, while
the Lazaruses of labor are nut off with
the crumbs which fall from the table of
tbe rich. Patriotism dictates that the
dignity of labor, and the nobility of citi
zenship shall bo protected and main
tained. But this sea.s not to be the
tendency cf the times. Lego.
Banker Corbett's Feast.
Saturday evening the much-talked of
and long-anticipated Corbett dinner was
given in Portland. Although the mem
bers of the entire legislature were invited
and covers were laid for 100, there were
but 39 persons present. Of this number
about a dozen were invited guests. The
dining-room was handsomely decorated
with flags, pelms, flowers and empty
chairs, says the Sun.
Among those present were the follow
ing gentlemen: IL. W. Corbett, Sena

thing noticed at tho banquet was the
total abstinence of many of the members
from intoxicatiug drinks. A numb r of

contingent imbibed nothing stionger
than water, although .champagne was

CHINA'S DEPLORABLE CONDITION.
The Japanese Army Is Simply Irre
London, Feb. 7. A cablegram from
Wei-Hai-Wei, dated February 5th. savs:
Tho Chinese fleet has practically ceased
to exist. The ironclad. Chen-Yuen and
her sister ship, the Line-Yuen, have
been sunk and tbe other vessels of the
Chinese fleet are within the eraso of the
Japanese. At daybreak on Sundav, the
Japanese fleet opened fire on tbe LIu-
Kung forts, which replied vigorously.
The Irombardraent became terrific. The
first Japanese division, including the
flagship, directed its force against the
eastern island batteries, while the eec-
ond division shelled Fort Sehih. Thn
Chinese fleets soon came to the assist
ance of tho forts. The Ting-Yuen used
her guns with good effect, but succeeded
in diverting some ,of tho Japanese fire
from the torts to herself.
The Lii-Yuen, a smaller ship also
fought well. There were many casual
ties. Two Chinese gunboats also assisted
but were not badly damaged. These
four vessels fought desperately until
dark, when firing ceased on both sides.
Tbe Chinese forts, especially Fort
Sehih, suffered immense damage. The
Chinese fire, toward evening, indicated
that the guns were disabled, and tbe gun
ners were killed, that the amnnition was
becoming scarce. The sea was running
high on Sunday, but fearing that the
Chinese wonld endeayor to escape, tbe
Japanese fleet did not seek shelter, re
maining to block the oxits from the har
bor. During the night the Japanese
learned, from a prisoner who had been
captured ashore, that Admiral Ting,
Chinese naval commander, had ordered
tho captains of the various ships tore-
mam in the side harbor even if the
islands shoal 1 be captured, and en
deavor to destroy tbe Japanese fleet.
Every officer was ordered to remain at
his post until tbe last, under pain of dis
honor or death.
Tbe bombardment was resumed todav.
Sunday's operation being repeated. The
fire from Fort Sehih continued weakly.
The Chinese men of war were so repeat
edly and badly hit that their guns were
handled with difficulty and with lets
spirit. Towards the close of the fight
the Ting-Yuen and the Chen-Yuen were
disabled. They gradually settled down
and foundered amid the shots of tbe
Japs both on land and sea. The other
Chinese vessels were in distress.
The dispatch concludes with the state
ment that the Japanese are preparing to
carry Liu-Kung by storm. The Chen
Yuen and Ting-Yuen were built at tho
Vulcan works, in Stetin, Germany.
Fun With the Fruitgrowers.
The meeting of the fruitgrowerj at
Portland last week was not devoid of fun
for the outsiders. It appears that Geo.
W.Riddle of this county was probably un
intentionly the cause of tbe trouble. It
appears that Mr. Riddle is opposed to
the present board of horticulture, and at
the meeting Thurrday the subject was
up for discussion.
Professor Lake denounced in scathing
terms the action of Mr. Riddle, who had
sent copies of a letter to everv member
in the Oregon legislature condemning the
horticultural board and reouesting that
it be abolished and instead thereof there
be appointed a general commissioner for
the entire state. The reading of the let
ter caused considerable discord and dis
sension among the members, who at
that time became estremelv. personal.
Tbe letter stated that Riddle did not
know the members of the board in his
victnity and did not know that commis
sioners existed, and that he bad not de
rived any benefit since J. D. Whitman
of Medford "retired" in 1892. Mr.
Whitman was not present, but his sin
stated emphatically that the old man
was not only in favor of retaining the
present board, but had alsq written a let
ter stating positively tbaf he did not
favor abolishing the board. This state
ment put S. A. Clarke in a very bad posi
tion, and he proceeded to state hi3 side
of the question in strong and forcible
language. Mr. Riddle's letter also stated
"that nine-tenths of tho fruitgrowers of
Oregon were opposed to.the law under
which the board is work!nt. nnrl tn tha
commission itself." In regard to that
statement Mavor Casev of AohlanrI aniH
he thought the contrary was the case.
"As far as 1 know," said he, "ten-ninths
of the fruit-growers in Southern Oregon
are in lavor ot giving the board more

Cleveland's ;Bond Bill Defeated
WA8iii.NaTON, Feb. 7. The last hope
of financial legislation fcr the relief of
the treasury at the present session of
congress went by the board wLcn the
house, by a vote of 124 to 161, rejected
tlio .ifminintnllAn'. Ull 4 ll -
. ...itj.i n 1 1 1 1 ,1, i .iinri7i an
issue of $500,000,000 of bonds.
This bill was beaten before it reached
its last parliamentary stage. This re
sult was reached after three days of
speeches, and, at times, heated debate,
and at the end of a seven hours session,
from 11 a. ra. till 3:30 p. m. today.
When the bill with pending substitutes,
was reDorted to the house from tho com
mittee of the whole the amendments
were offered in rapid succession, most of
which were voted down as fast as they
were offered. Many of them were de
signed to load down the bill and the
votes thereon were in no sense test votes.
The Bell amendment, for instance, to
make the bonds payable in gold or silver,
was defeatod by a decisive vote of 76 to
100, while the bill was defeated by 134
Both tLe Reed and Cox substitutes
with amendments thereto, were rejected
after the bill was reported to the house.
The Reed substitute, anthorfifn
issue of coin bonds for the replenishment
of the gold reserve and indebtedness and
to defray tbe deficiency in the revenues,
was lost 109 to 187- It was a party vote.
When the question came up for third
reading and engrossment of the bill the
whole opposition centeredupon it while
the vote was being taken, which resulted
in the refusal of tbe housj to order a
third reading, the interest centering in
the voto ofReed. He sat quietly in his
seat during roll call, and did not 'answer
to his name, but on the second call he
voted for the bill.
As soon as the result was announced
Reed attempted to make an explanation
of the attitude of himself and those of
his colleagues who had voted for the bill,
bat objections were made. He after
wards explained, however, that he had
submitted a propositionhis own substi
tute) which he considered would meet
the situation, fhe democrats had re
jected this and then he and many of hia
colleagues, although opposed to certain
features of the bill, had voted for it in
the hope it would pass and bo amended
in the senate.
Springer then moved to reconsider the
vote by which the third readirg was re
fused, but this motion was laid -on the
table by a ote of 135 to 123. and tha
bill was killed, pafliamentarily speaking.
Au analysis of tho vote- shows forty-,
two republicans and uinety-lwo demo
crats voted for the bill, and fifty-six re-
paniicans an-J nmety-feight democrats
and seven populists voted sminst ?r

Sam Clark's Death.
There is a bitter contest in Drrwrpsa in
Oakland, Cal.. over the burial of Engi
neer Sam -Clark, who went down with
his engine during the great railroad
strike. Sam Clark wa3 the engineer who
in the face of threat" and warnings pulled
i 1 1 jtt
ursl Penger train out of Sacra-
mento on Jn llth la3t whel e- strike
was at its height. He went to his daath
in the terrible wreck when his engine
plunged off the trestle. It waa stated in
the Superior court iu Oakland Wednes
day that the funeral expanses of tbe
brave engineer have never been paid, and
there is now an unseemly co ntest on
hand among those wh tui-'ht have
avoided a scandal in open court. When
Sam Clark was so suddenly gent to his
death there was general sorrow for him
throughout the coast. The railroad people
announced that they stood ready to do
anything within reason towards the
burial of the engineer. Many people
even went so far as. to raise subscriptions
for a monument in order that the grave
of the dead hero might ba appropriately
marked as that of a nun who had done
his dnty in the fce of great danger.
The deceased w.w given a big funeril at
Sacramento. Bus pior S iro CUrk is now
almost forgotten in many places and his
funeral expenses have never been paid.
This is tho cause of tho coute.-tt, in court,
and charges of misappropriation of funds
for his burial are freely made.
