A SENSIBLE SILVER ADVOCATE.
Senator Power Thinks The Silver Men
Asked Too Much.
New Yokk, March 19. U. S. Senator
Power of Montana in an interview, says
he thinks the silver advocates in last
congress made a mistake in trying to
adopt a measure providing for the abso
lute free coinage of silver. He did not
think in was sound policy to jump too
quickly to free coinage of white metal.
It will not do for three silver producing
states to attempt to dictate the financial
policy of the whole country. I do not
believe it best to adopt free coinage while
bullion is worth only $l'per ounce. When
legislation is enacted that will advance
the price of bullion, free coinage law will

UMATILLA INDIAN COUNCIL.
Red Men on the Reservation Make Some
Pendleton, Or., March 17. A big
council of Indians was held at the
agency four miles east of here. All day
yesterday some thirty head men were
present, and listened with reverence to
the guttural orations of their leaders.
The nature of their principle demands, i
Dneny given, is us loiiows: "A confer-!
ence is wanted with Register Cleaver of !
the La Grande office." This request!
,will doubtless be granted. Mr. Cleaver
has been notified and will wobablv be
here the latter part of the week. The
cash received for the land must be I
delivered at once to the Indians, else
tney tnreaten to prevent the sale irom
being made. The threat of course is an :
An emphatic protest is made against
the appointment of E. J. Sumnierville,
to whom the Indians appear to have
taken a dislike as one of the allotment
commissioners. The -Indians sav thev
will prevent him from coming on the
reservation. Whether this will have
any effect is doubtful, as Mr. Summer
ville is said to be strongly recommended.
lne government has carried out its
contract to the letter, anil has advanced
at last so far that it will not recede.
The Indians first agreed to take 120,000
acres, to be allottxi m severalty. Then
thev. asked for 12,900 acres more and
their request was complied with. Now
that the government is ready to sell the
remaining 148,000 acres it will do it in
spite of protest.
The Indians purposely interpreted the
Slater bill to mean that their allotments
shall le made prior to sale, and that the
lands not needed by them shall after
wards be sold. They cannot or will not
understand the act" to mean that so
much has been set aside for their use,
and that the surplus land will all be
6old. They professed to believe that if
the diminished reservation is not suffic
ient for their wants, they may draw on
the surplus lands, and", many Indians
have flocked to the reservation since the
census, on which the division is based,
in order that as much land might . be
secured as possible.
COLOKED PRESS ASSOCIATION.
The Opening; Address by the President
Fnll of Indignant Statements.
Cincinnati, March 17. The seventh
annual convention of the Colored Press
Association of the United States began a
session here today. President John
Mitchell, jr., in his address, called at
tention to the increase of outrages in the
south, to the plain violation of rights of
the citizens, etc. The attitude of the
two political parties, he said, was cause
of serious alarm. The defeat of the
Blair educational bill and the failure to
favor the elections bill were pointers to
the drift of public sentiment in the south
of these parties. - The time - was not far
distant when a free American would
strike back. The republican party of the
nation, he said, owing to treachery in its
ranks, has greviously disappointed the
colored mau. In future the colored man
must help himself aud do all he can to
elevate his condition.
DEATH OF A CENTENARIAN.
David Ross Munroe. Probably the Old-
est Man in Oregan.
Hillsboko, March 17. David Ross
Munroe, an old pioneer, from Scotland
and through the Hudson bay service,
died Sunday and was buried today. It
is supposed he was the oldest man in
Oregon. In his youth he was drafted in
the wars against Napoleon Bonaparte,
but was not in active service as he was
only seventeen at the time of Walerloo.
He arrived in, Oregon in 1842, and has
resided here ever since. Men who are
now old knew him as an old man when
they were boys. Dudley Munroe has
been supposed to be almost a living fos
sil for many years, though able to walk
and travel about until a few weeks ago.
There can be no doubt that he was over
100 years old.
WORLD'S FAIR MISCELLANY.
Tennyson Made an Honorary Member
and Asked for a Song.
Chicago, March 17. In answer to" a
no te from the World's Fair Auxiliary
Association tendering him an honorary
membership and suggesting that a song
from his pen to be sung at the openine
of the fair would be appreciated, Lord
Alfred Tennyson has sent the following
"I will accept your offer of an honory
membership not without gratitude, but
as for a song I am an old man, verging
on 82, and I cannot promise."
. The belief is, however, that he will tr
to write a song.
Anna Dlekinson Getting Better.
Albany, N. Y., March 17. A letter
from a sister of Anna Dickinson, re
ceived by F. H. Brand of this city, says :
"The brothers have already persuaded
Anna to take regular meals and she is
beginning to secure natural sleep, so
there is every hope of her early recovery
to health. Then she could go abroad to
Carlsbad springs for a time, and then
have a southern winter. If the men and
newspapers who say they are going to
help her to funds will really do so, there
is no doubt she will yet be able to do
good work in the world again. -
ConBdent of Having Tascott.
Chicago, March 17. Attorney Longe

THE SEWFOCNntAXD LOBSTERS.
The Quarrel With France May Result In
Union With the United States.
Montreal, March 17. A private let
ter has been received here, from a gov
ernment official at St. Johns, N. F.,
which says of the existing difficulties :
"It is known that England arrived at no
agreement with France for the settle
ment of our difficulties, but instead has
consented to arbitrate the question of
French rights to build lobster factories on
the coast which has never been claimed
by France, ami England has or will re
fuse to ratify our commercial treaty with
the United States. The day for recon
ciliation has now passed and a move
ment is on foot not for reciprocity but
for admission into the American union."
We have too much experience with Brit
ish injustice to seek more by entering
into the Canadian confederation. The
people are . not alone in this matter,
but have the support of many members
of both governments. What is more, it
is almost an open -secret, that the dele
gation is now preparing to visit Wash
ington to guage the feeling and find
whether the terms for this could be "
TO BOYCOTT GERMANY.
President Harrinon Determined to Pro
teet American Indnstries.
, New Yokk, March 19. A Washington
special says that President Harrison is
determined upon summary measures to
relieve American ports which are subject
to so much German opposition. Min
ister Phelps has been notified by the
state department, at the request of Presi
dent Harrison, to demand of the German
authorities that the embargo be at once
removed, else the president will proceed ,
to exercise the authority given him by
the last congress, and by its proclama-
1 tion close our ports against German
I The announcement is nothing less
j than a threat and the result will be in
j The state department otticials refused
to discuss tne matter ttns morning.
There is no doubt but that such a
communication lias been sent to Minister
Phelps for the president so informed a
senator who called upon him this morn

Ilathaway's cottage and the " cottage
