Washington, April l'J, Govornor
McKinley has written to some of his
Oregon friends in Washington that tho
result of tho Oregon 'convention was es
pecially gratifying to him, not only be
came tho delegates were elected for him,
but becauso it starts' the ball tolling on
tho Pacific coast, aud because the in
Quencu which it will have upon the other
conventions to bo held on the coast will
no doubt be in tho samo direction. Gov
ernor McKinley has no warmer sup-
portsra in congress than are to be found
in the Oregon delegation. In spite of
the senatorial sentiment, which is al
most wholly for Allison, tho Oregon sen
ators are for the Ohio man with un
doubted loyalty. And in the house,
where the sentiment is no doubt
very strong for Heed, tho Oregon repre
sentatives are most favorably inclined
toward Major McKinley.
The information which reaches Wash
ington is that tho rest of tho ccjst will
no doubt follow tho lead of Oregon and
send McKinley delegations. In Wash
ington, it is stated here, the sentiment is
about equally divided between Allison,
Reed and McKinley, andanuninstructed
delegation will be cent from that state to
vote for the choice of the convention.
As for California, even Senator Perkins,
who dees not coucaal his preference for
Allison, is inclined to believe that Mc
Kinley will have at least seven-eights of
Senator Mitchell expresses his entire
satisfaction with the platform adopted at
the Oregon state convention. lie fays
either the platform of the Minneapolis
convention or the platform of the Ohio
contention would suit him as to the
financial plank. lie says that he has no
doubt but that tho republicans of Oregon
will easily be victorious on the platform
Home Rule For Cuba.
Washington, April 20. The Spanish
government within a few weeks will put
into execution a comprehensive system
of home rnlc or autonomy for Cuba.
There is good leason to believe that the
state department has received from Mad
rid information to this effect.
The law which will be put into effect
was signed by the .queen. rcgenUIarch
Id, 1S05, and will lw followed np by the
rales and regulations dcveloini; the
present scheme of reforms. By the
time the queen resent makes her ad
dress to the Spanish cortes, which as
sembles in one month, the law will
promulgated throughout Cuba, and the
long-expected home rule will he rea!-
The element of homo rule ia secured
by the establishment of two local bodies
drawn larcclv, if not entirely, from the
residents of Cuba. One of these is to lc
known as the provincial chamber of
deputies, the other as the council of ad
ministration. The latter has appellate
jurisdiction over the former. Large
powers are granted tho council of ad
ministration in the internal manage
ment of public affairs, but the governor
will continue as the supreme represent
ative of Spain, and will have direct
charge of military, naval and interna
Move by flatabeles.
Buluwayo, April 19. So far as the
situation is improved hero oyer that of
yesterday, it is due to tho departure ot
the enemy, which has been massed to
the north of the town for several days,
and from where an attack has been al
most hourly expected. This movement,
however, brings little comfort to those in
Buluwayo. The excited manner in
which the natives quitted their positions
indicated a confident purpose of mis
chiel. Their is no evidence that they
were alarmed Friday at the demonstra
tion of tho patrol of 24 men from Bulu
wayo upon their vanguard. Although
this vanguard was driven back upon the
main body, the patrol did not dare to
place itself within the reach of the over
whelming numbers of the main body.
The direction taken by this great bedy
of hostile natives, after quitting tho posi
tion to tho north, has not been learned.
But it is feared the purposo of the move
ment is to try to effect a junction with
the rebels in the Matoppo hills, and thus
sever communication to the southward
Tho road runs through the Matoppo hills
to tho south of Buluwayo, and is a dilli-
cnlt and dangerous one for 50 miles from
hero, at which dietance the road reaches
the Mancwo pass. This angular and
precipitous defile, it is felt, must be held
It is of such a character that it can be
mado impregnable against the attacks of
nativo warriors. But for tho samo rea
son. if allowed to get into the hands of
the nntives it would bo extremely difli
cult, and perhaps impossible, to dislodge
them with any forco at present availa
ble. To leave this pass to tho enemy
would effectually cut oil the intercourse
of Buluwayo with the outside world. To
hold the pass and to patrol the road be
tween it and Buluwayo, measures which
nre felt to bo imperatively ueccssary for
tho safety of this place, requires a largo
proportion of tho availablo- forco, less
than a thousand men, in Buluwayo,
The threatened movement of the
enemy upon tho huo ol communication
perplexes the authorities with the prob
lem of how far they can further denude
Buluwayo of its fighting forco to guard
' the road. Tho lack of certainty as to the

FRIENDS OF HF.RMANN TALK.
Universal Regret at Washington
Over His Defeat.
Washington, April 8. News of the
defeat of Congressman Hermann of Ore
gon for renomination was received today
with universal regret. Congressman
Ilitt, chairman of the committee on
foreign affairs, said today: "I sat next
to Mr. Hermann for six years and I look
upon him as one of the most faithful
men in the house. Ho has accomplished
more for his state in tlio way of appro
priations than any man who ever sat in
coagress. uis defeat is one ot those
political phenomena which mortal man
Delegato Murphy of Arizona inclines to
the belief that some evil influence has
been at work in Oregon to blind the
people against their best interest. "Mr,
Herirauu ia tho wonder of tho lower
house and has been ever since he took
his seat," said Murphy. "If all the ap
propriations he haB secured for Oregon
were summed up they would equal al
uiofct one-half of the total value of the
state. Every state and territory on tho
Pacific coast will suffer by the loss of
Hermann from Congress."
Congressman Barharu received the
neve as ho would the death ot a close
friend. Said he: '.'Such idiocy aa has
been displayed by the Oregon republi
cans passes all undere'attding. Oregon
can send no man to till the place as
Hermann has filled it, and as for the
Pacific coast in general, it could have
better lost any half dozen of its congress
men than Hermann."
Tiicse sentiments are shared by all of
the California delegation. It was largely
to his efforts that California got what
sho did on the river and barber bill just
reported. Nor dj the Californians for
get the helping hand -Ahich he invaria
bly extended to them in all their fights
in previous years. If Hermann had had
any doubts as to his popularity they
would have been dispelled today. He
was kept busy hearing regrets which
came from representatives from every
part of the coantry.
The Review oi Monday makes a vil
lunou3 attack upon inemiers of the Bap
tist church by charging them with fos
tering pugilistic entertainments, such as
was given at the armory last Saturday
night ; and in aiding the growth "of A.
P. Aism. in Roseburg and turning the
city over to this secret society by elect
ing officers who are in full sympathy
with lawless exhibitions, as that of Sat
urday night." Such u an attack upen
Baptists and other churches a3 well, in
this city. When the fact is the greater
portion of those who atten-led the spar
ring match at the armory were anti A.
P. A. members of the Review's party,
and i: is also an attack upon the wives,
daughters aud sisters of these anti-A. P.
A. men who witnessed that "Roseburg
Shame," which, the Iteview tries to
make it appear, is the result ot A. P. A.
teaching, when in fact it has nothing to
do with it in any way whatever. It is
also a fact that the Christians of Rose
burg of all denominations are opposed to
such exhibitions, and so decreed in a set
of resolutions at the Baptist church that
evening, knowing that it was then goin
on. The Review has got the A. P. A.
rabies aud got them bad, and to please
its political bosses condescends to accusa
the members of the city churches with
fostering a "Roseburg Shame."
This classic etorv in dramatic form wast-
produced at the Roseburg theatre Mon
day night, with all its beautiful scenery
and startling stage effects, and was wit
nessed by the largest audience that has
greeted a theatrical company in Roseburg
for months. Faust, dramatized, is much
superior to the familiar opera, in point of
interest. It is a dreary and improbable
sort of story at best, but tho devil and the i
old woman managed to enthuse enough
life in it to mako it go, and on several
occasions there were hearty bursts of ap
plause. Tho electrical display was brill
iant and leautiful, the costumes elegant
ard the acting good.
Quick Work or Slow Flying.
The rejwrt comes from French Settle
ment that Jame3 Conn, a few days ago
while out huntin?, saw a flock of ducks
on the wing. James determined to
fetch one of them down. So he stopped
his horse, led him twenty or thirty yards
to n tree, undid the halter aud tied his
horso fast, loaded his shotgun and fired,
bringing down ono of the ilock. The
qucery is, did Mr. Conn do all this pre
paratory woik in a second of time or did
that tlock of ducks tly so slowly as to not
get out of gun shot rauge during Mr.
Conn's making ready to shoot? That is

OUR NEXT DISTRICT ATTORNEY.
Mr. W. E. Yates received tho republi
can nomination for prosecuting attorney
of the 2d judicial district at the state con
vention in Portland last week. Mr.
Brown, the present efficient officer, was
his opponent for the nomination, but the
fact of Douglas county having the judge
Hhip, influenced the delegates in favor of
the Benton county candidate.
Mr. Yalca has filled several public po
sitions in this and other counties, and
has always been an honest, energetic and
capable official. Mr. Yates is a good,
lawyer, and very popular with all who
William E. Yates was born on his fath
er's farm, three miles east of Coryallis,
in Linn connty, thirty-nine years ago,
and lived at his birth place until he
reached the age of twenty-five years.
His early education was obtained in the
district school, but during the last four
yeara he lived on the farm, he attended
the Oregon agricultural college, from
which institution he graduated with high
honors in June, 18S0, receiving the de
gree, Master of Arts. During tho follow
ing year he was retained at the institu
tion as a tutor. This position, however,
he gave up and accepted tho chair of lan
guages in the state normal school, which
position.he ably held for four jears. He
was then elected county school superin
tendent of Polk county, and served one
term, lteturmng to (JorvallLS ne was
chosen principal of the Corvallis public
echools and held the position two years,
when he was elected ecLooI superinten
dent of Benton county. For some time
Mr. Yates had been desirous of entering
the legal profession, and to that end had
improved his leisure momenta by study
ing law, and at the conclusion of his term
of office, was admitted to the bar. He
has since resided in Corvallis and has
built np an excellent practice, and dur
ing the past few years has been connect
ed with some of the most important I It I -
gation before the Benton county bar.
Last year Governor Lard appointed him
a member of the board of regents of the
staU agricultural college, aud he has
looked closely after the best interests of
the institution. For three yearst past he
has been a member of the board of di
rectors of the Corvallis public schools,
ai'd the present excellent condition of
the district's affairs is due largely to his
close personal attention and business
ability. Corvallis .Gazette.
