seyFears of u Negro Riot in
the Indian Territory.
Ottawa, May 2. In the house yester
day Laurier, leader of the opposition ar
raigned the government for the insulting
epithee which Sir John MacDonald arid
other members of his cabinet had show
ered upon the United States during the
recent campaign. The result of the re
cent elections, he held was practically a
victory for the liberal party and their
policy of unrestricted reciprocity.
Sir John in reply said government had
every reason to congratulate themselves
for the manner in which ' the country
repudiated the liberal party and their
policy of annexation. He regretted the
loss of several of his supporters, who
had fallen in battle but defeat was due
to the McKinley bill and not to any
charges that could be directly brought
against the government.

San Francisco, April 30. The Cali

They don't know just where they are
standing on the national agreement pro
position, and so far no concerted, action

ment of the difficulty. Colonel Robin
son says, and Manager Harrison cor
roborates him, that the president of the
league had been instructed to secure ad
mission to the national agreement, but
when a reporter asked the supposed
head of the league the plain question
whether or not the California League
was a party to the national ageeement
an evasive answer was given. The
colonel is a strong national agreement
man. Harris doesn't care one way or
the other. Finn is known as the social
ist of the league, and while not a mem
ber of his team ia affected by the recent
decision of the board of control, it
would be safe to say that he would vote
to let the national agreement alone. So
would the Sacramento management vbut
it is certain that Secretary Young con
siders the California League under the
jurisdiction of the national board of con

threatened the Californian with expul

leased to the clubs claiming them.

Dy tne magistrate n captain Verney

sion of by a Thief.
Keokuk, la., April 30. A. T. Stein
walked into the City hotel here today
and cooly told the clerk he had purchased
the business and was on hand to run it.

drawer. These were turned over by the

tempt at 'Suicide.

a well-known physician of this city, at

had an occasional period of delirium,
during one of which, yesterday evening,
he sent his daughter to another part of
the house. While she was gone the
doctor . seenred a revolver and fired a
b ullet through his chest. It passed just
below his heart and came out at the
back, burying itself in the wall of the
room. This morning Dr. Maus is in a
very critical condition, and attending
surgeons have no hope of recovery.

What a Bore It Is to Be a President.
It isn't much fun to be the president.
In fact, it must be a bore. Poor man I
Doubtless he got tired of the bother and
the persistence of the office seekers at
the national capital and put up a little
trip with his wife and a few friends out
into the breezy boundless ' west. He
thought he'd have a month's rest and a
good time. Probably he would if he
could do like one of us, buy bis section
in the Pullman, give the porter a four
bit piece, take out the latest magazine
and a cigar and have a rest as the train,
rolled along, and when be tired of read
;ng look through the frame of the car
window at the magnificent panorama.
But the president can't do that; he
must have on a smile and a stiff collar,
and make a speech at every cross-road,
and be stared at like a five-legged calf or
a two-headed elephant, and no matter
how he feels mnst shake hands with all
hands and talk and be interested, when
he probably wishes the whole lot of 'em
were gone and he could rest. Every
where he goes 'tis a thousand or ten
thousand to one ; so many of all others ;
only one president. All the discomfort,
annoyance, weariness -and bother that
make what might be a pleasant trip a.
torture. That's why we think he won't
come to Astoria. He'll have made
speeches at every little station in the.
Willamette valley, will have reached
Portland at noon, will have listened to
all the speeches and made solemn reply;
will have finally got to the refuge of hia
Pulluian car, and like the village black
smith, will have "earimd a night's re
pose." He will have left Portland at
midnight, and at 3 a. in. will be crossing;
the Columbia river. It is not at all
likely that he will Mailt to rawl from
his nice warm cot, whether we want
him to come or not, and go on board a
i windy boat at 3 o'clock in the morning
I to come down the Columbia river.
None of us would ; we can't expect the
president of the United States to do
what we would jositively refuse to do.
Of course we would be glad to see him
come, and Astoria would sjend a thous
and or so'entertaining him. He would
see the oldest settlement on this north
west coast; a city rich in historical asso
ciations; a city made famous by the pen
of the poet and the pencil of the painter;
he would see the greatest government
work now go ng on in this great country
over which he presides, but unless he
changes hip programme it is unlikely
that he will visit Astoria.
WANTS THE SHOE OFF.
Robert Snyder's Amputated Limb Pains
Robert Snyder, the mill hand whose
right leg was sawed off below the knee
about two weeks ago in the saw mill at
Hauser Junction, Idaho, where be was
employed, and who was brought to the
hospital in this city for treatment, is
rapidly recovering. He complains con
siderably, however, of pain in the am
putated leg and foot.
The shoe lacing is drawn so tight, he
says, that the foot often feels as if circu
lation were being impeded, as when it is
said to be "asleep." He says that at
the first opportunity of getting word to
his friends at Hanser Junction, he will
ask to have the foot dug np and the shoe
