GONE TO WASHINGTON.
President Harrison is1 the Guest of
Tacoma and Seattle The Recep
tions Being Held in the Rain.
Captain Verney Sentenced to One Year's
Imprison mene A Burglar Burg
les at Corvallis.
Tacoma, May 6. The president and
party entered the state of Washington at
an early hour this morning in a driving
rainstorm. This interfered materially
with the arrangements for bis reception
at the various places visited but did not
suppress the cordiality and enthusiasm
of the people.
It was 8 o'clock when the presidential
special reached Tacoma and rain seemed
to be coming down harder than ever.
Notwithstanding this fact the chief
magistrate of the nation and his advisers
were given a royal reception.
They were met at the station by the
governor of the state, and a committee
of citizens who escorted the party to the
Gross block where formal addresses of
welcome were delivered.
The line of march and the reviewing
stand were handsomely and appropri
There were four grand arches on
Pacific avenue, one made of fir block,
another of coal, another of iron and a
fourth of grain, all of lative production.
In his response to the address of wel
come the president said :
"I would like to see some great steam
ship lines carrying the American flag en
tering the ports of Puget sound. I believe
we have come to the time in our develop
ment as a people when we must step
forward with bold progress, or we will
lose the advantage we have already at
tained. We have within ourselves re
sources and a market of which the world
is envious. We have been content in
years gone by to allow other nations to
to do the carrying trade of the world.
We have been content to see the markets
of the American republics lying south of
us, controlled by European nations. I
think a period of discontent with these
things has come to our people. The
time is auspicious for the enlargement
qf our commerce with these friendly re
publics. The time is propitious for the
re-establishing on the seas of an Ameri
cen merchant marine that shall do its
share of the carrying trade of the world."
Arrived in Seattle .
Seattle, May 6. The. president and
party arrived here at noon coming from
Tacoma by boat.

FROM WALLA WALLA.
An Order Issued to the Army Post Re
garding the Lynching;.
Walla Walla, May 4. The official
order promulgated at Fort Walla Walla
is as follows :
"Soldiers: Your commanding officer
is assured that the great crime against
the law committed recently by a few
men of this command is deprecated and
condemned- by you. Public opinion,
however, guided by the press, will hold
all of us implicated until we ascertain
and secure for punishment by law the
guilty parties. Our honor, the honor ' of
our regiment, the honor of the army and
our duty demand this. Until the guilty
are found suspicion rests upon all.
Every innocent man will therefore
recognize- the necessity of clearing his
good name of the stigma resting upon it.
"The board of officers to investigate
the occurrences affecting this command
on the evenings of the 23d and 24th of
April, 1891, is herebv ordered to meet at
this post today. The detail for the
board is : Major M. Cooney, Captain T.
J. Wint, Captain C A. P. Hatfield,
Fourth cavalry. The boord is author
ized to summon before it any percon
njuneuwu wicn me command.
WOLF'S PERIODIC COMET.
The Celestial Visitor Reappears as Pre
dicted by Astronomers.
Mount Hamilton, Cal., May 4. Wolf's
periodic comet was rediscovered this
morning by Mr. Barnard at the Lick ob
servatory, it is extremely faint and
small, and is following closely the path
predicted for it. This is the first return
of the comet to the perehelion, and its
reappearance has been looked forward to
with great interest. Its position . this
morning was ngnt ascension, 2z hours,
33 minutes, 17 seconds north, declina
tion 13 degrees, 11 minutes, 28 seconds,
at 3 hours, 24 minutes Mount Hamilton
mean time. This comet was originally
Qiscoverea Dy ur. Max won, oi Meiael
berg, Germany, on the 17th of Sep
tember, 1884. Its period is between six
and seven years. This is the sixteenth
comet discovered by Mr. Barnard.
San Franciseo Strikers Win.
San Francisco, May 4. The strikers
at the Union Iron Works have all gone
back to work. President Scott refused
to arbitrate with them or receive their
committees, while the men were out of
bis employ, and promised to investigate
the complaint if they went back. The
men therefore resumed work. The strike
was a sort of protest against being fined
for taking a holiday on May 1. The
painters have won their eight hour de
mand. This morning all the shops have
laiien into line, some discharged cer
tain of the men who were most active in
the strike, but these at once obtained
jobs in other places.
It is Bigamy.
Boston, May 3. C. H.. Pattie, who
was Marion Manola's counsel in her
divorce suit from Mr. Mould, when
shown the report of marriage to Jack
The marriage will not hold good under
the American law. She cannot be
divorced at all now. If she applies for
her final papers six months from now
she will have to sign them in the same
name with which she entered suit,
Marion E. Mould. If she is now "Marion
E. Mason the court will not. recognize
her for a moment. It is bigamy, and if
either of them come to this state they
can be punished.
Blethen Again Takes Hold.
St. Paul, Minn., May 3. It is stated
that the Minneapolis Tribune, which two
months ago was sold to William Murphy,
of Grand Forks, N. D., and ex-Senator
Gilbert A Pierce, is to be reconveyed to
Alden J. Blethen, its former owner, and
Thomas Lowry, the Twin City railway
magnate. Mr. Blethen will resume the
business control of the paper, but Sena
tor Price will remain as editor. The
paper has leaned toward Harrison under
the Murphy regime, but will come out
now strongly for Blaine.
Lady Brooke to be Ostracized.
London, May 4. A coterie of swells
have formed a cabal to ostracize Lady
Brooke, the American lady whose gossip
led to the exposure of the Gordon-Cum-mings
card scandal. The lady is
intimate with the prince of Wales, and
jealousy is one of the motives actuating
some o her present antagonists. Ladv
Salisbury espoused the fair American's
cause, and gives a dinner in her honor
next week, an event which will probably
smash the cabal.
WHV BEX BUCKED.
Explanation of the President's Conduct
at Oakland, Cal.
John S. Shriver, the Washington
correspondent of the New York Mail and
Express, who is traveling ahead of the
president across the continent, arrived
nere roaay and said to a Telegram
reporter : The only hitch or trouble on
the trip was at Oakland, and that was
caused bv the chief of police, who cared
more for his own appearance than the
carrying out of the programme. About
four squares from the stand the police
allowed the crowd to rush in and so
block the street with carriages and peo
pie that the president's carriage was
stopped at that point. He waited fully
fifteen minutes for the police to clear the
way, andffnally was obliged to get up in
his carriage and make his speech. It
was utterly impossible for the president
to get to the stand and rather than dis
appoint all, he preferred to make his
speech to those about his carriage than
not at all. The people of Oakland did
not understand the situation, and hence
the report that the president left the
town in anger. The truth was that the
president regretted the affair, as it was
the only break in the programme since
he left Washington.
The best way to hit a sinner fair in
the head is to aim at bis heart.
THE NEW ORLEANS AFFAIR.
The Report of the Grand Jury ' II ax
Washington, May 6. The report of
the New Orleans grand jury excited no
surprise here. The attempt to palliate
the infraction of the law by off-setting
the alleged attempts at jury-fixing is
depreciated by the legal department but
there is a well defined opinion on the
whole outcome that the case will be
beneficial m its efforts upon the turbu
lent foreign elements of the United
The report will, it is expected reach
Secretary Blaine in due course of time
and make quite a figure in the official
correspondence between the United
States and Italy. The report finds
eight of them to have been naturalized
American citizens and that one of them
had declared his intentions to become
A Mixed up Affair.
San Diego, May 6. Early this morn
ing the vessel Robert and Minnie was
sighted laying off San Diego harbor in
Mexican waters, seizing a party who
went out last night and returned with
out making an attempt to seize her, and
now is awaiting orders from the attorney
general at Washington. The Itata still
lies in the stream ready for sailing.
The Italians Are Not Pleased.
New Yokk, May 6. Speaking of the
result of the deliberations of the New
Orleans grand jury, the II Progresso to
day remarked : "It is an outrage that
these men should escape for what they
have done." Among the Italian resi
dents the same sentiment is expressed.
A Destructive Fire.
Pitthbu kg , May 6. The Seventh
street fire is still burning, but the flames
are uuder control, and no further dam
age is apprehended. Over half a million
dollars worth of property has been des
troyed. Fifty Thousand Men Out.
Brussels, May 4. The miners and
iron workers' strike in the Liege and
Charlevoi districts is complete, and is
spreading to the Broinage district, in the
province of Hainout. Fifty thousand
men are out of work in Central Belgium.
There has been more rioting at Liege.
Seven more people were injured.
ADDITIONAL L00AL NEWS.
From the way it is raining wherever
Mr. Harrison goes, it would seem that
all the good things comes with the rep
The fine rain of the last two days seems
to have been quite general as well as
abundant. From all points yet heard
from comes the news that the ground is
thoroughly soaked and the promise for
good crops was never brighter. If we
should have moderately cold weather
when the grain comes to fill and mature,
we can depend ou a fair crop without a
drop of rain more.
A Chronicle subscriber said to us to
day : "The market reportsof the Chron
iclee are worth four times the cost of
the paper.". Another said: "Your
market reports are the best of any county
paper I ever saw in my life." The editor
can say this without vanity as these re
ports are carefully compiled, week by
week by Mr. S. L. Brooks.
The third regiment band boys are
puzzled over the programme for the
presidential reception at Portland which
appeared in the Oregonian and Telegram
of last Saturday. At the very head of
the list was the third regiment band
from The Dalles. Now the boys here
had never been consulted about going to
Portland and supposing that The Dalles
board of trade had made arrangements
to that effect several members of the
board were consulted only to find that
they too knew nothing of the matter.
At last a telegram was sent to Portland
wheu the boys were informed that their
services were not needed as arrange
ments had been made to procure bands
from nearer points. What the boys are
wondering'at is who placed their band
at the head of the Portland programme.
Colonel Sinnoit is the happiest man in
town. The many friends of the colonel,
who often cast a faint shadow of doubt
on his salmon story, have been at last
assured by no less a person than the
private secretary of George Francis
Train and over the signature of that dis
tinguished functionary that the colonel
never told .a lie in his life, or which
amounts 'to the same thing,- that some
body did actually walk across the Col
umbia river on the backs of salmon. The
following entry appears on the hotel
register of yesterday's date: "George
Francis Train, John N. Klench, private
secretary. Salmon fishing July 1869,
when I rode over the Columbia on their
backs." This seems. to settle it, and yet
it would perhaps have been still more
satisfactory if the colonel had secured the
co robo ration of a less vigorous prevari
cator than George Francis.
