HOY, BSnTS ADDRESS.
A Ijirpe Crowd in Attendance In
Notwithstanding the delny in securing
the ball and tbe brief space of time allowtrt
for cin-nlatinp tfao announcement, Heed's
Opera House wan well filled la-st evening tt,
lis. ten to the address of Got. Bennett of
Idaho Territory on the political issues ol
the day. In Uie lower portion of the hall
the g-ata were all occupied and persons
coming in late were compelled to stand,
and we also noticed a large number in the
ralkry. The ladies as usual graced tbe
aie-tiug ly their presence, and evidently
look no little interest in the proettdingu.
Ctov. Bennett was introduced hy Hon.
Joteph G. Wilson, Congressman elect from
this State in his usual, flowery style, after
which the speaker proceeded" to propound
Republican doctrinu in a plain straight
forward manner. He traced the record of
the party during the pant few years, paid a
handsome tribute to its acknowledged lead
ders. showed up the Iemocratic reform (?)
in its true light, delivered crushing blows
rf scathing rebuke at tiie bulwarks of the
Greeley supporters, touched lightly jut in a
conclusive manner on tiie attacks mode by
Democrats on the personal cliaraeter oi
Gen. Grant, and in a general way, knocked
the props from under the so called '-Libera!
reform movement, and snowed tiie iusidt
workings of the machine in anything bm
an acceptable manner to the friends of tlu
"Old wnite hat." Gov. Bennett has a pleas
ing manner while on the stage and a con
trolling power over his hearers that showt
itself in the close attention paid to bis re
marks. His remarks were interspersed
with an occasional comical yarn that served
to keep the audience in excellent humor ai
the same time being well adapted to tin
subject in hand. Taken altogether tlu
meeting was a grand success and proved
more tiian ever that tiie popularity of tin
Republican cause in Salem would make it
selt more than manifest in the coming fal.
election. Keep the ball rolling and on tin
evening of the 5th of November next wi
will surprise onr Greeley friends by tht
majority we will roll up for Grant aud Wil
son. A Dabiso Robbery. A tin peddler
named Wallace who was here during tin
lair, was robbed of S2M in coin ou the loau
between Dallas and Monmouth yesterdu
ft.renoon about eleven o'clock. He a
driving his team quietly along the roaa
when suddenly two men closely masti.
stepped out from some underbrush and pre
senting tircarms told Waliace to fork ovei
his loose cliange, which he proceeded to d
with the bast grace possible under the cir
cumstances. The men decamped as sud
denly as they appeared, and Wallace drovt
back to Dallas and placed the aflkir in tin
hands of the proper authorities who an.
now in search of the robbers.
Ax Extra Session. This question fee rut
to bo agitating the mind of parties inter
ested just at present. Can the Legislative
Assembly transact its business in the time
prescribed by law, or will the Governor bt
compelled to call a special session for th
purpose of -numbing up. Ths meuibcd
tiave entered into the work since the Fan
closed as though they meant to get througi
anvwav. But there is an immense amoum
uTwork accumulated, and many doubt tin
cbility of the present session to walk tlirougl
it all within Uie next ten days. It remain,
to be seen.
What Next? Nowthaifthe State Fair is
over and the Legislature drawing to a ciose.
the question arises what will we have next
to keep up an excitement. We have be
come so accustomed to exciting (trues dur
ing the past six weeks- it will come rather
rough on us to settle back into the old
groves again and run on in the natural
course. But what we have done we can no
doubt do again so let it come.
Rushing Business. Beed's Opera House
was in excellent demand last evtutng. Gov.
Bennett commenced speaking at 7 o'clock
and continued for one nour and a ball" after
which Waldron's Theatrical Troupe plaved
their regular evening engagement. Two
performances in one evening at the same
luul is something unusual for salem.
Orr tor Gsaxd Rosdk. Mr. D. P
Thompson and B. P. Earhart, Esq., started
for Grand Konde Indian Reservation yester
day to complete the allotment of lands to
the Indians. The work is nearly completed
and they will probably return to too city
within a few days.
Malheur Ixdiax Keservatiox. This
new Reservation, selected in August last by
Superintendent T. B. Odeneal, has been ap
proved and established bv order of Uie
President. This will no doubt prove of
great interest to our readers in luastern ure-
Pebsoxal. Dr. Wm. B. Caldwell, of
Portland, a young physician of rising fame,
has been appointed attendant physician at
Grand KonOb Agency, anu wui stun to-aay
to assume the duties of nis new position.
Special Notice. The annual meeting of
the Oregon Children's Aid Society at two
o'clock p. M. at the M. E. Church to-day.
All members arc requested to be present.

A Printer's Experience Daring
We hare often beard of the timidity of
some people during a thunder storm, and
we have a case in point which is so amusing
mat we cannot reirain ironi muuig j..
Some time since a printer employed in one
of the offices of this city, went home early
to the boarding house in which be liad only
recently taken lodgings ; and. retiring to
bed early, be was awakened near midnight
by the noise of a violent storm. He there
npon got np and lighted the lamp, and then
sat down on tke bed in a perfect tremble of
Meantime the landlady, hearing a noise
in the adjoining room, and forgetting about
the boariler, wakened her husband up and
told him there was a burglar in the bouse.
He jumped out of bed, and seizing an old
rusty sword, which hung on a naU in the
wall, he proceeded to search the premises
for the supposed robber. Coming to the
door of tue boarder's room, he saw the
light, and at once made up his mind (not
knowing that his wife had taken the printer
to board) that a struggle would be neces
sary to secure the intruder. Mustering all
hi courage, therefore, be rushed into tbe
room, sword in band, and demanded thai
the frightened printer should surrender 1
Tue see fie was no lest startling than re
dicnlous, and the feelings of the innocent
printer can better be imagined than de
scribed. He proclaimed his innocence in
ntanter, and announced himself a genuine
boarder and no mistake, which explanation
molined and disarmed the landlord, and es
pecially so wben the printer's story was
confirmed by the landlady herself. Tiie
printer was then questioned as to the cause
of bis bains op at that time of the night,
wben he replied that he was frightened by
tbe thunder and lightning 1 A good hearty
laugh ensued, and a fcw momenta later the
printer was toft to his own reflections for
the remainder of the night.
The GovEBBom'i Receptjos. One of the
principal events of Salem's greatest Mason
the Legislative session wsa the recep
tion last evening, by Gov. Grover and lady
at their beautiful residence in South Salem.
All the notables of Oregon, incloding the
creame de la creme of fashion were there,
the throng being a particularly brilliant one
for even the Capital which seta np these af
faire in better style than any of her more
pretentious- neighbors. Of distinguished
men there were a greater number -than of
ten fall to'fhe lot or any one in Oregon, to
entertain together ex-Governors, an ex
Benator -a Senator elect, Secretary, Treas
urer, and other dimitariee of State.' State
Senators-and Bgprosontaavsa, Judges of the '
Siiitreine Court, etc, etc-, almost without
limit ; and a greater number of beautiful
and richly dreawd ladies than we should
dare to attempt mention of. The Governor
and bis accomplished ladv did the honors
with a simple democratic grace and ease
that did them immense credit and won the
hearts of alL The assemblage did not fully
disperse till a late hour, and we are sure 1
no one left without a sense of having spent
an nnusuallr oleasant evenine.
Two Torso Rascals. On Monday morn- '
ifig ot this week the thieving operations of i
twp young boys, both of whom were under '
twelve years of age, and if the boys bad '
been taken before a magistrate they wonld i
in all probability have been sent to jail for !
n iew uays. une amy ism weea a gentleman
borrowed a fine double barrelled shot
gun wotth about Hi which ha set up in the
corner of Jiis kltohea until he had use, for
the same. The boys who had noticed the
transaction through an open door watched
rheir chance and secured it with a lot of
hunting equipments that were with it.
They took it home and hid it under the
house. Snnday morning they took it ont
and started jar the country to enjoy a days
sport But their joy was turned to grief
before night, for on their return in th fit
they were met by a gentlemen who recog-
nasad 'the fowling piece and asked the J
ooro wnere taey got it. Tlwy were so ter-
rilled that they confessed their guilt and i
surrendered their fire-arms without further .

A Lively Fbacas. The streets last eve
ning were alive with rumors of various
kinds eonceniinT an encounter that took
place on the corner opposite tae Ctierneketa
Hotel. We made several inquiries but as
is usually the case in instances like this it is
aluiott impossible to make any reports qf
the affair agree. Every person we futer
viewed last evening gave us a different ver
sion of the story and we can do no more
tuan give the facta as we heard them. The
participants ra the affray were Messrs. Lap
peus, Fay, Semple and Trevitt. It seems that
Mr. Sethple was coming up Commercial
street behind Mr. Lappeus when the latter
wheeled around and struck him with a
cane. Mr. Seniple drew his revolver and
his first impulse was to fire but he changed
his mind and used the bntt end of the
weapon as a means of defense. Jlessrs
pay itnd Trevitt happening to come alung
at "that time and seeing that Lappeus was
getting the worst of it pitched into Semple
aud the three got away with him in a haty
manner. it seems to uh as though the
emits were rather large against 11 r. Sample
but as we were not an eye witness we may
not know all the circumstances of the case.
From Daily of Friday Oct. 11.
Grand Jubilee. The citizens of this
place are maaing extensive preparations tor
a grand illumination and reception to be
held at Reed's Opera House next Tuesday
evening in honor of the Legislative Assem
bly, aud an a token of appreciation of
favors granted our city by that body during
thj present session. li will in fact be a grand
jubilee over the passage of the Capitol Ap
propriation Bill, and it is the intention of
those having the matter in hand to make it
the grandest affair of the season. It will
end up by a grand ball, and the music en
gaged tor the occasion will be the lxst that
can be stcured. Everything will be ar
ranged in first class style, and a good time
be indulged in by everybody regardless ol
party, sect, or cretd. ft will be an occasion
lor every one to rejoice. Over $o00 has al
ready boen raised to defray expenses, anu
mucli more been promised. Invitations
have been sent abroad, and there will no
doubt be a great number of visitors pres
ent. Look out for a brilliant displsy ol
"fair women aud brave ineu" to say noth
ing nf other attractions to numerous to
mention." We predict that our little cin
wJJ jiL-rt "spread" herself on this occasion
and show Uie outside world tiiat we still
'live and move, and liare our being" not
withstanding the occasional slurs thrown
out about our lack of public enterprize.
ENCoinAcrMo Immioeatios. Two very
important Bills to tiie people of t.iis Stau
have just passed Uie Senate aud will be
brought up in the House- to-day for further
action. One of tuem provides fur tuo ap
pointment of a Board of Commissioners ol
Immigration, whose duty it shall be to col
lect and dirr'use information regarding th
soil, chmaie, reaomct, etc., of Oregon, by
the publication of reliable statistics. Tht
gentlemen mentioned as members of said
Board are well known throughout the StaU
as trustworthy and competent. They re
ceive no salary, only necessary travelling
expenses, their headquarters to be at Port
land, where an office will bo opened. Ttti
Bill is well guarded, and should it pass will
prove of untold value to the entire State.
Tne other bill authorizes the appointment
of Gen. E. L. Applegate, ef Lane Co.. as
Commissioner of Immigration. He will,
immediately on receipt of hid appointment,
proceed East aud scatter information abroad
in his own inimitable style. The apnouit
ment is an excellent one. Mr. Applegate is
a gentleman well posted in the affairs of tht
Suite, aud by his efforts the pjpulation ot
the State will no doubt be greatly increased.
These bills are not of a political nature, and
we h pe to see them go through with flying
Special Ixvitatios. I he editors, re
porters, clergymen, Professors of Colleges,
teachers of astronomv (either visiting or
residing at Salem.) State officers and mem
bers of both Houses of the Legislature, to
gether with their lady friends, are specially
invited to assemble a't the Court House at
7 o'clock this evening, to witness a trial of
the 'Planetarium and "Revolving Planis
phere." An opportunity will be afforded
fur asking questions and'making investiga
tions generally. Bhoulu Uie visitors uesire.
Prof. Clianey will "cast a Horoscope on a
blackboard, so that all may see, and mal e
such explanations as may be desired. To
do these things, visitors should be prepared
with dates of birth, giving hour an minute
as near as possible. Please be prompt, as
the doors will be closed at half past seven.
X. B. The general public is not invited,
but will have an opportunity next week, as
trvot. Clianey will commence a course ot
seven lectures next monoay nignt.
Rettrxed Home. Messrs. D. P. Thomp
son and R. P. Earhart returned to Sakm
vesterdav from their trip to Grand Ronde
Asencv, having finished the allotment of
land to the Indians, and closed np business
in that line, car less dimculty was met
with than was anticipated in the choice of
lands, and peace and harmony reigned su

erosity. This Evksino. C. A. Reed has extended
an invitation to the officers and members of
both Houses to attend the theatre this even
ing and witness the rendition of the great
Shakesperian play of "Macbeth." The in
vitation was accepted and we may expect to
see our distinguished visitors on hand to
night in goodly numbers. The piece is a
popular one, and Mr. Waldron's rendition
of the leading character is equal to the best.
We hope our citizens will turn out and give
him a full house. He has done much to
ward entertaining us and his financial suc
cess should be made sure. This will be his
last evening with us, and we urge upon our
readers to give him a rousing send off. Re

during the day without extra charge.
Tbe Appbopbiatiox Bill. This, which
to SalcmiJes is the most important bill be
fore the Legislative Assembly received its
finishing touch by that body yesterday, hav
ing received the signature of the presiding
ofheer of both Houses. The "one thing
ne.-dfur" now is the signature of the Gov
ernor, when it will become a law. This
b.U huR received a very liberal support in
bjth H rases, and now that it has passed
througa "the fierv ordeal" we can but con
gratulate our readers upon the final success
of the enterprise.

Td the Ihmnrahle President and tSuwit:

State of Oregon :
We, the undersigned, your Commit

the same Committee mi the part of tin

Resolution requiring us to examine
the accounts of the Penitentiary Build
ing Commission and also those of I lie
Superintendent of the same, beg leavi
lo make the following report.
The Committee having secured the
services of Mr. II. M. UcFratice; Pres.
blent of the Commercial College of
Portland, a competent book-keeper,
as clerk, proceeded to give the books,
eXjK'nditurcs and accounts of the Com
mission and SujKTintendcnt a thorough
and complete examination. The re
port ot Mr. De France ou the correct
ness of the vouchers issued and the re
ceipts for money expended, agreeing
with the books kept, is herewith an
nexed. Your Committee have personally
ex.imiued. fii-sr. tbe outlay and expeu- J
diture of the $50,000 appropriated by
the last Legislative Assembly tor the
coi'structio'i of permanent Peniten
tiary building, and find they have
1 sec u characterized by carefulness ;u.l
exactness. Secondly, that the Super

rials, caJi and convict labor to ti e
amount of $3-s,0l3 .'10. all of which lias
lieen appropriately and advantageous
Your Committee has particularly

report, for which there ha been issued
vouchers No. 1 to 45. inclusive. The
prices paid foi each article of merchan

critical examination, and we find
theinio be the lowest market rate bli
the quality of goods purchased or labor
performed, and that the purchases
have been made with a view to saving
to tbe State as much as possible. That
ji large portion of the same article
could not le purchased to-day without
a material advance upon the juices
