The nightly meetings of God's Regular
Army at their barracks are quito largely
attended. Ensign Wimmer informed
our reporter that eleven had conclnded to
enlist but only about half that number
had been sworn in. It ia a remarkable
fact that the city dcrgy do not seem to
fraternize with these peopla by taking
part in tLeir work of saving souls.
There seems to be a sort of negative an
tagonism to Wimmer'a work by thus
keeping aloof from his meetings. If a
belief in Chrirt is essential to salvation,
why do the clergy and their followers
not unite with the army and help swell
their ranks and win Bouls to Christ? is
the question asked by many.

Prof. Appelhoff, with his well known

occasion, which was appreciated as one
of the nicest features of the entertain
ment. As the time passed the boys
were entertained with speeches full of
wit and humor.
The address of Welcome bv Mavor
Maraters was a gem of rhetoric.
The address of D. Silis Cohen, netting

An Old Pioneer.
Yesterday we were most agreeably
surprised at the entrance of our resi
dence of on old pioneer whom we had
not seen for 20 years, but whom wo in
stantly recognized as William Taylor of
Marion county, and with whom we
crossed tho plains in 1845. Win. Taylor
has been visiting relatives in this
county for the past month or so, and
among those relatives aro 3Irs. Thomas
Baker, his daughter, of Oakland; his
granddaughter, 3Irs. A. Salzman, and
his daughter, 3Irs. Howard 3Iartin of
Roseburg. William Taylor was born
in 1810 in Hardin county, West Vir
ginia ; from there he went to Franklin
county, 3Ii8souri,and afterwards to Hall
county, same state, and from there to
Oregon in 1845. 3Ir. Taylor is a halo
old gentleman of 77 years, and 011 his
visit to us yesterday wo spent a couple
f hours in social and friendly converse,
and in comparing incidents of travel
that occurred to us fifty years ago. In
casting our minds over the just, and in
reflecting upon the present, we could
call but a half dozen names to our re
membrance of those, who, in 1S43, were
our companions in travel from the East
to the Pacific coast. This empha
sized upon our minds the fact that
early pioneers are fast passing
away, and that ere another decade of
ears shall have elapsed, the last ouo of
them will have rendered up his final ac
count. Mr. Taylor has (pent two winters
in tbe Eastern states since his first
arrival in Oregon, but this his adopted
state, receives his warmest praise. He
is pleasantly situated when at home in
tho Waldo Hill's, Marion county, and
enjoying contentment and peace in the
decline of life. May that contentment
and peace continue with him until the

At Work In Washington.
Washington, Jan. 7. Representative
Sultzer, of New York city, called at the
state department today, accompanied by
President Palm a, of Uie Cuban revolu
tionary committee, Secretary (iuesada,
and Horatio Ruebens, prominent Cuban
sympathizers, and Manuel Sanguilly, a
brother of the Sanguilly, now held in
Morro Castle , Havana.
Secretarv Olnev was about tolea-e for
the cabinet meeting, so the party did
not see him. They left a large bundle
of papers for his inspection.
It was afterwards learned that the
chief purpose of the leaders of the Cuban
revolutionary party in coming to Wash
ington today was to push vigorously :
movement to secure recognition of the
revolutionists by this government
Thev made .ecretarv Olnev a brief but
forcible presentation of the claims of the
insurgents to recognition.
Recently the house adopted a resolu
tion calling upon the state department
for all information in its possession con
cerning the revolution. President
Palma and his associates at once began
a compilation of evidence in justification
of their cause. It is probable the docu
ment given Secretary Olney, or their
substance, will soon be transmitted to
the house. There is a strong sentiment
in the house, which has. been advanced
by the recent successes of the Cubans,
that this government should do all in his
power, consistent with international
usages, to assist the patriots.
President Palma predicts that the in-
sergents will capture Havana within
three months, and the Cuban republic
will be established within six months if
it has the recognition of the United

question is going to assume grave pro
portions. News Confirmed.
Washington, Jan. 7. Acting Portu
guese minister, Senor Taveria, has re
ceived a cablegram announcing tbe cap
ture of Gungunhama and his son, Guid-
ido, by Captain 3Iuchino. The news of
the capture of the leaders of the rebellion
in Mozambique caused the greatest en
thusiasm at Lisbon, and it is considered
in Portugal that the capture means the
termination of the rebellion,
Cubans as Belligerents.
Washington. Jan. 7. Several mem
bers of the house consulted their lead
ers today regarding the introduction of
resolutions for the recognition of the in
surgents of Cuba as belligerents. It is
quite likely, however, the Cuban ques
tion will not come up for discussion un
til the committee on foreign affairs
makes its report.
In the Transvaal.
New York, Jan. 7. A dispatch to the
Wrorld from London says:
South Africa so completely occupies
the attention of the English that the
controversy with the United States is, for
the day at least, forgotten. If it comes
up again in its serious form of three
weeks ago, it will be because Lord Salis
bury is too stubborn to learn the lesson
of the German emperor's message.
That the kaiser's telegram to the presi
dent of the Transvaal means avowed
hostility to Englaud is universally ac
cepted. He flouts at Great Britain suzer
anity over the Transvaal. To surrender
that claim would be the most shameful
surrender in England's history for two
centuries. The prospect of it is univer
sally rejected by the English press, tory
and liberal alike.
But while that vital question temains
unsettled, war with Germany is con
stantly menaced. Nor is the secession
of the South African colonies made less
threatening by the unexpecte ' resigna
tion, without full explanation, of Cecil
Rhodes, as premier of Caie Colony
Rhodes only makes way as premier to a
tried and loyal lieutenant. His silence
and inaction while another lieutenant is
in mortal peril in the Transvaal remains
unexplained. If be bad absolutely sur
rendered, it must mean that he has lost
his nerve if not bis faculties. The con
viction that this is not the case is still
felt in Loudon, and the dispatches are
not believed to tell the real truth of the
situation. In anv event, the complete
isolation of England, of which there
seems no possibility of improvement in
the immediate future, makes it quite in
credible that she will pursue her quarrel
with the United States while the threat
emng attitude ot Uermany, ot Kussia
and cf France is maintained.
All Now Quiet at Havana.
Havana, Jan. 7. Ihe insurgents are
still in the vicinity of Havana, but their
movements are not of sufficient import
ance to chronicle in detail.
The number of insurgents at Managua
and Calaiaznr, 14 miles from this city,
has been increased, but it is now be
lieved that Havana itself will not be at
tacked for some time.
The insurgents have burned a mixed
train from Cardedas, near b'auaguizes,
and the Spaniards claim they violated all
the women and young girls among the
Railroad communication in the proy
inco of Matanzas is being resumed.
A Slap at England.
Berlin, Jan. 7. At a special audience
which Dr. W. J. Leyds, secretary of state
of Transvaal, had with Emperor William
today, his majesty declared he would not
recogntzo any claim 01 suzerainty over
the Transvaal Great Britain, by tho
treaty of 1S44 claims suzerainty over tho
London, Jan. 7. The Globe this eve
ning prints sensational news under the
following scare headlines:
"Activity in War Office Anticipated
Military Mensuree." The Globe then
states tho war ollice sent a special mill
tary messenger this afternoon to Iho
colonial office, staling it is rumored im
portant orders aie ponding.
A dispatch ftom the military camp at
Aldershot says a general tielief, almost
backed by proof, prevails that the au
thorities are considering the mobilizing
of the army receives and part of the
militia. Men employed in the ordinance
stores aro very busy.
Bkrlin, Jan. 7. A semi oth'cial denial
was issued this morning of the statement
from Capo Towu, container in a, dispatch
to tho Times of London, that Dr. W. J.
Leyds, secretary of state for tho Trans
vaal, with a secret fund at his disposal,
has floated a German colonization com
pany with tho inteutiou of introducing
5000 German military settlers into the

Havana, Jan. 8. It was annouced in
these dispatches last night that the
sound of cannonading and rifle firing
was heard yesterday in the neighbor
hood of Guanaja, a town of 4000 inhabi
tants, in the province of Pinar del Rio,
45 miles south of this city. Details of
the engagement, just received, show
that General Navarro, between Guanaja
and Ceiba de Agua, overtook a numer
ous insurgent force under Zayaa and
other leaders. During three hours'
fighting the Spanish artillery was
called into play, and the insurgents
were routed with a loss of 23 killed and
wounded left on the field. The in
surgents ara said to have carried away
many more wounded.
General Navarro pursued the insur
gents, and overtook their rear guard at
Calba de Agua, and in a skirmish four
more insurgents were killed and three
taken prisoners. On the government
side it is announced only four officers
and 30 privates were wounded in both
A dispatch from 3Iatanzas says 400
surgents recently tried to compel the
garrison at Itabo, in the Cardenas dis
trict, to surrender. Upon the refusal of
the troops to surrender, the fort was at
tacked, but the insurgents were re
pulsed with a loss of six killed.
In Sight of the Capital.
New York, Jan. 8. A special to the
Herald from Tampa, Fla., says:
A private telegram received here from
Havana says the whole force of insur
gents is in sight cf the capital. Tbe mes
sage says that an apprehension exists
of an attack on tbe city, and that every
effort is being made to protect the su
burban approaches, especially the water
works and electric-light station. Sym
pathy with tbe insurgents, it is reported,
is known to exist in Havana outside of
official circles, and there is said to be
fear of an uprising in conjunction with
the insurgent advance.
The Cubans heiieve that tbe end of tbe
revolution is rapidly approaching, and
say Campos is defeated without an at
tack on Havana.
Consnl-General Solis discredits all
news from Havana, and says be is satis-
tied that the report of tbe insurgents be
ing at the gates of tbe city is a canard.
He scouts the idea of an attack on the
capital in the face of Campos' force of
100,000 men, including the volunteer
San Francisco, Jan. 8. The battle
ship Oregon will soot, be ready for sea.
The last of the armor-plates for the tur
rets have been shipped from the Bethle
hem works iu the East for the Union
iron works, and, according to the con
tract, the vessel is to be completed with
in 90 days after the receipt of the plates.
The armor for the sponsons and bar
bettes has long been put in position, and
nearly all of the eight-inch and tho
smaller guns have been mounted.
The four 13 inch guns that are to be
protected by the turrets cannot bo
mounted until the aruior-piates are in
place. One.of the turrets was finished a
few days ago, but the big weapons will
not be placed in it until both turrets are
ready; in all, four guns will be mounted
at once. Nearly all that remains to be
done to the big ship is to complete the
one turret, and it will only require a few
days after the armor plates arrive to do
tbe work. The engines and other
machinery of the vessel has been tested
and found to be perfect, and thj big battle-ship
can now be ready for service in
a few days.
