BUTTER. OR TRADE Proprietor, Drain, Oregon NO woman can afford to ignore her shoes unless she hands in her resignation to polite society. IIer shoes determine her walk, Jier walk determines her style, her carriage, her posture, her whole attitude and bearing as she moves about. A ladies' shoe should be light in weight and very flexible to the foot to enable her to walk in an easy, graceful manner. This is the especial charm that makes Queen Quality shoes so popular. They are trim and neat in shape as so many other shoes are, out they go farther than this, farther than any shoe, in actually creating an elastic, graceful step. C.

Saddle Horses, Single and FRANCE IS WITH UNITED STATES Identity of Interests of These Two Nations la Venezuela flay Lead to Joint Action. Washington, Jan. 31. There is row- son to believe that tke French Govern ment already has sounded the United States Government to learn how much in common there may be between their interests in Veneiuela. It is said that there is a strong resemblance between the claims of the two nations ; perhaps enough to link them together in resist ance to any policy on the part of the alMes which would tend to destroy or impair those interests. For instance, the United States, through a regular tribunal, the Venezuelan Claims Com mission, has secured judgment against Venezuela for a considerable sum of money which Venezuela has been pay' ing in installments. Recently these payments have been delayed, and as the money comes in large part from the Venezuelan customs the United States may have very good legal right to pro test against any conduct on the part of the allies which will prevent its debtor from meeting its obligations to the United State, France, by treaty and negotiations, has secured what amounts to a judg ment against Venezuela, and the claims that her debtor must not be destroyed or Venezuela's means of meeting her payments to France impaired, as was the case by the adoption of the prefer ent Lai treatment demanded by the allies. These considerations are tending to draw France and the United States to gether in a policy that is likely to take issue with that of the allies. All the members of the Cabinet were present at the meeting today, Secretary Moody having returned from his brief vacation. Bad Man Qets Punctured. Spokane, Wash., Jan. 30. Charles Hill lies dead at Davenport, Wash., as the result of a tracas ib which he at tempted to kill Joseph FJoy, by firing two bullets into his body and threaten ing to slay William Sullivan, the pro prietor of the Wonder saloon, of that place. Marshal Jack O'Farrell and Deputy Marshal Epperty came on the scene when Hill was nmping bullets into Hoy, and with two shots they laid Hill out. One bullet struck him in the breast, while the other struck him be tween the eyes. He died a few minutes later. Hoy, whose life was saved only by the timely arrival of the officials, will prob ably recover. Hill was known as "Swede Charlie." He came to Davenport from the ranch of Charles Turner, who lives south of Davenport. It is not known whether he has any relatives. . TO COLLECT THE TAXES'. Cuba To Collaot tran Americans on Um Isle of "). Havana, Jan. SO, General Xunea, governor of the Province of Havana, in which the Isle of Pines is included says that the government has directed the municipal officials in the Isles of Pines to collect the taxas which the American residents there decline to pay In default of payment, the officials will have reourse to the courts. Goveror Nunez attributes the memorial on the subject, recently sent to Washington by the American residents, solely to land speculators, who, he alleges, misin formed the buyers to the effect that the island was bound to belong to the United States. AMERICA BUYINQ WARSHIPS. Rumor That Chile Has Sold Us Two Vessels Now Bel rg Built. . Nsw York, Jan. 31.

F. A. McCall, Sec. A GREAT SCHEME FRUSTRATED Measure to Give Land Agent Patronage-'Scheme of Democratic Origin. Salem, Or., Jan. 29. The Senate re versed itseif this morning. After there had been passed under suspension of the rules a bill introduced by Senator Pierce, Democrat, by request, which os tensibly was merely to define more clearly the law relating to the office of state land agent of a deputy at a salary of fl200 a year. There is no such pro vision in the present law. This discov ery was made by Senator McGinn, who quickly called it to the attention of the Senate, and moved the reconsideration of the vote by which the bill had been passed. Pierce quickly seconded this motion, and explained that he had no idea when he presented the bill by request that it contained such a provision as this. The bill had been handed to him, he said, and he had not even read it. After the RAISE SALARY OF PRESIDENT. Bill Introduced In the House to Pay Him $100,000 a Year. Washington, Jan. 29 Representative Bristow, of New York, today introduced a bill increasing the salary of the Presi dent of the United States to $100,000 a year. When the House met today it was agreed that at tomorrow's session bills from the committee on claims should be considered, and that recognition should be accorded to members alternately on each side of the political aisle to call up bills on the calendar. The House then resumed consideration ef the Indian ap propriation bill. Lacey (la.) offered an amendment to authorize 50 children of native Porto Kicans to be admitted to the Carlisle In dian School. The appropriation of $10,000 for the warehouse at St. Louis was restored. and without further substantial amend ment the bill was passed. The House then took np the consider ation of the postoffice appropriation bill, and Patterson (Tenn.) took the floor un der the latitude of general debate to dis cuss the subject of anti-trust legislation. To Stop the Lieu Land Oraft The following bill has been introduced by Senator Markers ; and of all the bills introduced we "regard it as the best for the true interest of the state : TO THE CONGRESS OF THE C KITED STATES. WheseaS the -Conro nf tha Unit) States has heretofore enacted certain laws whereby certain persons and cor porations have been enabled to select and have patented to them by the gov ernment of the United States large tracts of the best timber lands at the State of Oregon, selecting tham in lieu of lands claimed to hava been lost to the iersons or corporations so select ing in other states; and whereas under certain laws of congress hereto fore passed such persons and corpora tions SO Selecting suck timber land were given the right and privilege to select nnsunreyed lands ; and whereas they were thus enabled to select the best timber lands in the state for lands in lien of almost worthless lands loet in other states, to the detriment and injury of the State of Oregon ; there fore, Be it retolred by the LegiiUuire Atttmbly of the State of Onion: That in justice to the people of said state all laws and parts of laws authorizing any person or association of persons, corporation or corporations, to select lands within the limits of the State of Oregon in lien of lands lost to such selecting party outside of said state should be repealed. Bt it further retolred. That the Congress of the United States should pass such laws that any lands selected as idemnity for lands lost to the selecting party or corporation, or any other person or persons whomsoever, within the limits of the State of Oregon, must be in lieu of lands lost to such selectinir nrtv within thn limits nf aniil t state and no base allowed or accepted in lieu of land desired to be selected, ex cept such as is furnished from land lost to the selecting party within the State of Oregon, and congress is hereby re quested to enact such laws that the peo ple of the State of Oregon, will be pro tected in its lands in this respect. Be it further reiolced, That this memorial be telegraphed to the Secretary of the Interior and to our senators and representatives in congress, and that duly certified copies thereof be forwarded to the presiding officers of the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States.

For sale by Marsters Drug Co. mltf Sneate had voted to reconsider the bill it was referred to the committee on ju diciary, again by motion of Pierce. As a Democrat has just been appoint ed state land agent, the railroading of this bill through the Senate looked like a deliberate attempt to give the land a;ent more patronage by steal, but to this scheme, if such it was, Pierce em phatically disclaimed being a party. In presenting the bill he stated to the Sen ate that the measure was intended sim ply Vv define the existing law more clearfj; but he after ard explained that he had made this statement upon the representations of the parties by whose request the bill had been presented. Asked afterward who these parties were Senator Pierce said he could not remem ber. The bill had been handed to him, and that was all he knew about it. YANKEES SEEK NORTH POLE. William Zelgler Backs Captain Edwin Qoffio and Signs Only Americans. Ageitown, Mass., Jan. 30. Captain William Coffin, of Agertown, Martha's Vinjard, a veteran whaler, says he is to command the William Zeilar Arctic ex pedition, which will start from Trorasoe Norway, in June, and make another ef fort to reach the North Pole. Mr. Zeig- ier has placed no limit on the expenses. "One thing I shall insist upon", says Captain Coffin, "is the selecting of men. I shall have every man on board a Van kee, and I shall pick them from the most experienced ice sailors of this section." Captain Coffin purpos to provision the America for about three years. There will be about 200 Arctic dogs to draw the sledge party. He will push directly from Franz Jnsefs Land and then work up in the Arctic floes as far as the ice conditions will permit. California Legislature. The loot of the state treasurv of Cali fornia by its Legislature goes merril von. The expenses for employes, attaches, as sistants .and junketing tours, heretofore scandalously high, are now far greater than ever before. The Republicans, be ing in a majority in the Legislature, are cliiefly responsible for this outrageous raid on the people's money,, but thev have been assisted by many Democrat and by all but t wo of the Union Labor party-members. The parties are all tar red "with the same stick. California Legislatures have become a synonym for wholesale loot. The San Francisco Chronicle says: Nothing more shameless was ever done by any legislative body in America ave only the Southern colored Legis- aturee of the res tract ion period-than has been done by the present Legislature of California in the matter of attaches and junketing. When we read the retort. of their proceedings we recognize V s horrible irony of the concluding words of the Republican state platform, which read as follows : "We pledge the nominees of this con vention to economical administration of the affairs of the state." We do not quote the foregoing to in timate that Republicans are worse than Democrats, for they are not. The dis tinction is between those who wish to loot and those who do not wish to or are afraid to, and that distinction does not run along party lines. But the Repub licans are directly pledged toecouomy and have control of the Legislature. This plunder of the public treasury has now become to open that the only coarse for self-respecting communities to take is to call indignation meetings and hold up to public exeration in their own homes the wretched beings who mis-represent the people by voting them selves a share of the loot from the treas ury which they are sworn to protect. Again may it be remarked, with satis faction, that while the Oregon Legisla ture may not be quite as economical in some respects as it should be, no such accusation can be made against it as this and the voice of the Chronicle is echoed by the whole press of California.

SCANDAL IN THE PENITENTIARY Woman Convict Figures in the Case. Files Charges Against Deputy Warden Dliley. Salem, Or., Jan. 30. On the volun tary testimony of Mrs. Rose Carlisle, one of the two female convicts at the State Penitentiary, and who says she is in a delecate condition, Second Warden A. C. Dilley and Druggist Gordon Hull have been suspended by Governor Chamberlain and Superintendent J. D. Lee, pending a full investigation which is to be made into the facts of the cae. Mrs. Carlisle accu.ei Dilley of being re sponsible for her condition, and Hull is held because he has been aware of the facts in the case and has failed to report them to the proper authorities. Rumors of tho impending trouble were freely discussed about Salem last nijtht, and at 8 o'clock this morning Governor Cian.btnVifl", who bad been interne! concerning the matter, went to the pen iteutiary to make an examination. He was absent four hours, and when he re turned to his office in the State House, announced mhat had been done regard ing the suspension of these two men. Mrs. Rose Carlisle was sentenced from Jackson county to serve nine years for the crime of arson, and she has al ready served 21 years of that time Now that the matter is being investigat ed she talked freely to the Governor and told him ehe had been in a delicate condition for four months. Another man than Dilley had access to the cells 01 the women, Convict White, a trustr who acted as prison nurse, and who, will be remembered, made his escape some 10 days ago. There was some dis position to throw the blame on him, but according to Governor Chamberlain, the woman makes her charge against Dilley. The latter is a Salem man. be ing a widower with one child. Second Warden Dilley received bis appoint ment from Governor Geer. He is well known in this locality, having been Chief of Police in Salem. Hull, the suspended druggist, is from Nehamah. It is charged that he has been acquainted with the facts in the case, and was acquainted with them be fore White made Lis etcape, but made no report. Governor Chamberlain de clares he will probe the case to the bot torn. Dilley, of "course, disavows the charge made. Govern ar Signs Bills. Sale. Or., Jan. 29.

Most of the butter now used in this city comes from Klamath county and California, consumers here paving the price of butter in those markets plus the freight to Medford and two or three intermediate profits. To make this burden more galling there is now being shipped from Medford to the Roseburg creamery the cream from 230 cows, which the dairy men sell at the Roseburg price, minus the freight of the 132 mile haul from Medford to Roseburg. And with all this balance of trade against the community the Roseburg creamcryman has the ef frontry to tell us that there is no busi ness at Medford for a creamery, and this in the face of the fact that the dairymen say that with the opening of spring and a creamery here in Medford that they can swpply cream from over 500 cows, all on farms within easy dis tance of this city. But will Medford always sell cream and buy butter and pay the freight both ways, together with three or four dealers' profits. Little Ranch for Sale.
