the Portage Road Made the Spec
ial Order for Tomorrow at 10.
Governor Pennoyer has Signed the
Cascade Portage Railway Bill The
Dalles Charter Bill in Danger.
THE POKTAGE BILL.
Made the Special Order
for IO A. M.
Salem, Or., Feb. 16. The huaw this
morning made Raley's portage road bill
the special order for 10 a. sr. Wednesday,
for the reason that the report of joint
committee of Washington and Oregon,
has not yet been made. The house
members demanded a report before act
ion is taken. It is thought that" a full
report would not favor the passage of
the bill, but the house will not get afull
report. The report will be that Oregon
and Washington cannot jointly build the
road, but that this does not prevent Ore
gon from building it.
The Governor has Affixed
to the Bill.
Salem, Feb. 17. Special to the
Chronicle. The governor signed the
Cascade railway bill yesterday.
Governor Pennoyer is fighting the
clause for the charter bill. The water
bill was referred to the Wasco and Sher
man delegation, and a compromise effec
ted. The funds remain with the city treas
urer. Commissioners are to be elected
by the tax-payers and have the vhand
ling and loaning of the funds. ,
A provision to bond the city for
twenty-five thousand dollars to pay
borrowed money etc., is to be submitted

THE CABLE LINE BILL.
Senator Mitchell Has Strong: Hopes
That Congress Will Pass the Measure.
Washington, - Feb., 15. Senator
Mitchell is very hopeful that his amend
ment to the consular and diplomatic ap
propriation bill providing for the con
struction of cable lines in the Pacific
ocean will be adopted by the senate and
in all probabilities be passed before the
end of this week. The adoption of the
amendments in the senate will have the
effect of sending it to a conference com
mittee composed of representatives of
both houses, and the fate of the cable
amendment will probably be settled by
conference. There was no opposition to
the amendment in the committee on
foreign affairs to which it was referred.
and Senator Edmunds, under authority
of the committee, proposed it during the
consideration 01 tne diplomatic Dill.
senator Mitcneii nas talked with a
number of senators about the amend
ments and they have not expressed any
dissatisfaction with its provisions. The
amendment will find manv suDDorters
because of the mere nominal liability
imposed on the eovernment bv it. al
though it may be claimed that too much
autliority is given the piesident m con
tracting with the company to build the
proposed lines. A Dill like that has been
introduced in the house by Morrow, of
oalilornia, and has been reported favora
bly from the .foreign affairs committee
and placed on the calendar.
THE LIMIT OF SPEED.
Senator Stanford Thinks Sunol Will
Beach the Lowest Possible Speed Bate.
Washington, Feb. 15. "Mr. Bonner
is right," said Senator Leland Stanford
last evening. "Sunol has trotted the
quarters as low down as 29 seconds, and
before the coming season closes will, un
der favorable circumstances, trot a mile
in close to 2 :06, and, by the way, my
belief is that time will prove about the
lowest limit which any horse will be
able to achieve at a trot. Sunol is no
longes mine, therefore I shall not lie un
der the suspicion of rating her . beyond
her merits when I say that I almost des
pair of ever being able to breed another
animal capable of such extreme fights of
speed. She has everything in her favor,
conformation, ambition, gameness, stam
ina, nerve power, and last, but not least
brain, which in horse parlance means a
level head. When I was in New York a
few days since, Mr. Bonner and myself
held a consultation as to bunol s im
mediate future. We agreed that, on the
whole it would be wise to give Marvin
chance to lower her record, and then
bring her to Mr. Bonner's private stable
The programme thus decided upon wil
Da carried out, and in tne early autumn
Mr. .Bonner will handle the reins over
her in person."
Abductors of Lodie Wirt to Be taken

girl, form Spokane December 7. He

Spokane. He was accompanied to

Home of the Good Shepard and was
overjoyed at the meeting the girl.
Lsrooks and wife are wanted at Spokane

Talmage's Eulogy of Sherman.
Few York, Feb. 15. At the Brooklyn
Academy of Music today Dr. Talmage
spoke as follows of General Sherman :
The century has no grander soul to
surrender into eternity than the one
who has just passed away from us.
Frank, honest, brilliant, gallant, patri
otic William T. Sherman ! Thank God
that I ever knew him, that 1 ever felt
the heartv grip of his right hand, and
held the friendship of his great big heart.
I have no part in the question which is
being agitated as to whether he was a
Catholic or Protestant. I heard his pro
fession of faith on a memorable occasion,
and under peculiar circumstances. In
New York, at the New-England dinner,
three, years ago, I sat with him fonr
hours. He was on one side, and immor
tal Henry W. Grady on the other, when,
in conversation, he expressed to me his
respect for his religion embraced by his
wife, and his own faith In God and confi
dence in a future. He was simple as a
child, brave as a lion, sympathetic as a
woman, firm as a rock, wrathful as a
tempest, when aroused against a great
wrong, and lovely as a June .morning
among his friends.
Senator Quay Will Explain.
New . York, Feb. 15. The World's
Washington special says :
Senator Quay said tonight that if his
health would permit, he would rise in
his place in the senate, tomorrow, and
deliver a speech which he has already
put on paper, and in which he will not
only defend himself from charges of em
bezzlement and other criminal charges,
made against him by the World, but also
defend and explain the attitude which
he has assumed toward the ' force bill,
declaring that at the last session he tem
porarily forsook the force bill only to
save the tariff bill, and that now the
only fault he finds with the Hoar bill is
that it is not strong enough, not practi
cal, in fact.- One who claims to. have
read Senator Quay's manuscript, says
the speech will not contain over 2.000
