jorities, also that the vote in Albina is

HAS A HARD TASK.
r John's Organ Discusses the Work !
of His Possible Successor. !
Tobonto, June 1. Discussing the
question what will follow in the event j
of Sir John MacDonald's death, the !
(Jlobe, the principal organ of the liberal
party, says : '-'Hints which have been '
thrown out about coalation are out of j

coalesce except upon a clear understand- I
ing that the national policy should be
abandoned in favor of free trade with i
the United States. Whoever Sir John's
successor may be the task before him is
one extraordinarily difficult. The lib
erals are prepared for putting public
consolidation first, to do everything that
is fair and reasonable, but they cannot
be expected to condone things which
they have condemned or to support a

HIS CAREER CUT SHOUT. -
Downfall of a Young Man With
New York, May ; 30. A remarkable
career of crime ends today with the
sending of Dav d Waldo Fierce to Sing
Sing, sentenced to hard labor for three
years for stealing a diamond scarf pin
valued at $ 250. Pierce is good looking,
well educated, 19 vears old. and from an
excellent Boston family. Enough in
dictments are banging over him to keep
him in jail the rest of his natural life.
He came here, entered a course of wild
dissipation with rich young men, and!
soon acquired expensive , tastes. He
then began a system of petty swindles
to keep up with "the fellows." About
one month ago he was arrested by the
police as wanted by a man to whom he
sold a valuable ring for a large' amount,
and by a young woman from whom he
stole a valuable scarfpin. He pleaded
guilty to the latter charge and was sen
tenced as told above. 1 Among other ex
ploits,'he married a young girl, and de
serted her the next day after stealing
Movements of the Charleston.
Washington, May 30. No advices
from the Charleston were receivsd at the
navy department today, and she is prob
ably still at Callao coaling. -No inform
ation can be obtained at the department
as to what instructions have been sent
ber, but the opinion is that she has re
ceived orders to discontinue her efforts
to capture the Itata, and it is believed
that an arrangement for the peaceful sur
render of the itata has been made, and
that she will be turned over to this gov
ernment for trial. The Charleston
bhould finish coaling today, and if her
machinery is in order, proceed on her
voyage, but to what point cannot be
learned here. Some think Bhe will pro
ceed to Iquique, while others express the
opinion that she will return to San Fran

Crops in California.
Sacramento, May 30. The crop report
by the State Agricultural Society says:
Northern California hay, strawberries
and cherries were slightly damaged by
rain but the benefit to grain more than
offsets the damage to hay that was down
and fruits that were ripe. Southern
California fruit trees show up better
than several weeks ago, especially apri
cots and peaches, but the riening of
fruits is still retarded by the cool cloudy
weather. Warmth and suashine are
needed to more rapidly advance fruit
ripening. Grapes are beginning to
Sad Day at Johnstown.
Johnstown, i'a.. May 30. The day
here was doubly sad, being observed
both in honor of dead soldiers and in
mourning for the thousands of lost in the

They formed a general flood association ,
and next vear a . memorial service and
dinner will be held in Pittsburg.
The Countess Must Act.
London, May '30. In an interview to
day Mr.' Harris, manager, said Belle
Billon, who married Viscount Dnnlo,
and who, by the death yesterday of the
Earl of Clancarty, 'became Countess
Clancarty, is under contract with him to
play for a year. The terms of the con
tract', Harris declares, will be enforced.
If Belle Billon' breaks the contract she
will have to pay a heavy forfeit. '

f HARRISON FOR PRESIDENT.
Senator Mitchell Thinks he Will be Ite
nomlnated Blaine Ont of the Race.
San Francisco, May 30. Senator
Mitchell, of Oregon, who is in the city,
when asked, " Do you think that Presi
dent Harrison will be renominated?"
declined at first to say. In response to
the question, " Is Mr. Blaine out of the
race, and is he as sick as reported?" he
The reports of Mr. Blaine's illness are
undoubtedly exaggerated. I saw him
near the White house just before he left
for Nei York. -He was pleasant and
genial, as he always is, but his face had
a peculiar ashen color and wearied look
which undoubtedlv cume from hard
work. He is sick, but he has no mortal
malady. Iain convinced of that just as
I am satisfied that he has no presidential
aspirations. He has given them up.
There is practically nothing to stop the
president's nomination. To le candid,
under theee circumstances, 1 think that
he will be the man. I agree with the
opinion of Senator Ingal In, expressed in
his letter to the republican editors of
Kansas, that Harrison will again be the
standard bearer. Who the democrats
will nominate 1 am not in a position to
express a sound opinion upon, but it
looks like Cleveland.
When attked what figure the third
party movement, the farmers' alliance,
would cut in the campaign, the senator
From a republican standpoint it is a
menace to success. There is danger that
they may carry Nebraska, Kansas and
perhaps one other western state hereto
fore republican, and possibly one South
ern state, which, of course, would throw
the election into the house. I have no
faith, however, that any Southern state
will go for the alliance electors.
A Letter From Our Mary.
New York, May 30. Mary Anderson
De Navarro writes to a friend in this
city denying 'the report p lblished re
cently to the effect that she is in abject
misery, etc. The letter concludes as fol
lows: "We have taken a deligbtful house
here in Kent, where we expect to live
ior a long time to come. 1 am also
happy in thinking 1 am done forever
with the glare and duplicitv of the staue
One of the leading banking firms in
Paris, on the recommendation of a Lon
don correspondent, engaged an Engliaii
clerk of the name of Stephenson." For
about three years the man's punctuality
was altogether unprecedented. He came
to his work at 9 in tUe momiirr and did
Dot leave the office before the last stroke
of 5. He was not a man, he was a clock.
Besides, during the whole time he never
asked for a holiday. One fim; morning,
however, to the great surpri:;e of his su
perior, Stephenson blushingly craved
permission to absent himself for an hour
oh the following day.
Next day at 12 he left the office. It
was observed that a carriage stood wait
ing for him at the door. . At 1 o'clock he
drove up again in the same carriage and
resumed his calculations as cool and self
possessed as if nothing had happened.
This short absence pnzzled the - brains of
all the employes in the bank. The prin
cipal himself, eager to obtain the solu
tion of the enigma, invited this paragon
of clerks to dinner. Between two glasses
of Chambertin the banker said, "You
will not think me indiscreet if I ask you
what you did with yourself in thathonr's
leave of absence you applied for last
"Oh! dear no!" replied Stephenson, "I
went and got married!" Measager
Insulted by a Woman. .
"Oh. yes, I'll remember Detroit; no
fear about that." said sweet voiced Dora
Wiley as she rocked to and fro in an easy
chair in the Russell Honse. "I shall re
member it as the first place in which I
was really insulted, and by a woman
"How and when did all thia happen"
asked the reporter.
"One night this week," continued Miss
' Wiley in reply. "A woman sat in one
of the boxes with her back to the stage.
One could bear that sort of thing for a
little while, but when an auditor turns
his or her back squarely on you for a
whole evening you c;mnot drive from
your mind the impression tu .t an insult
is intended. Well, that was the feeling
that came to mind as scene after scene
of the play went by, and still that wom
an sat there.
"I became so annoyed exasperated, I
might say that I could hardly sing at
all. . It affected others on the stage the
same, but perhaps to a less extent. The .
legitimate result, of course, was to take
our minds olf our work to a certain ex
tent, and to a measure the audience suf
