SECRECY NKKDFBL IO 8UCCI1S.
BUstabem as to Portland Inflaeaees-
.. E. I.. Dwjr Complimented
. : Minor Mention. -
Pobtlanp, March 8. It is now believ
ed nnd firmly settled that "Astoria is to
have a railroad." Don't quote this and
put it under the heading "chestnuts."
Astoria must now be recognized, and
she will be. If one proposition does not
go through, the next will. The people
of that city have become worked up to
the fact that a railroad will make a great
city of the place. A Telegram repre
sentative visited the town yesterday and
learned these facts in Astoria. The peo
ple, confidently believe that it is to take
the place of Paget sound, or rather be to
Portland what the sound now is to Port
land. .' They, or some - of them, think
that were a railroad built' the wheat
would, instead of going to Tacoma and
jBeattle, be shipped . from , Astoria, and
not only that this would be shipped,
but that now - coming to Portland would
come to Astoria and be shipped from
her docks. The capitalists believe, as
well as the general public of that city,
that it is . the mutual . wheat-shipping
port of the Northwest. The committee
of ten recently appointed is working in
a quiet way, but its work will tell when
made public. The chairman is working
indefatigably for a road. Besides this,
the trustees are moving in ' harmonv
TUX COMMITTEE OT TK5J. '
Something will come of it. - That is
one thing which is very certain. There
are now several- propositions to build - a
road from Portland to. the. city on the
Lower Columbia, one of whicn i occu
pying the attention, of the committee
and trustees. It is expected that a con
tract will be signed in a few days. . The
Telegram is Jn possession of the exact
stipulations of the subsidy and contract,
but cannot at present make them public.
PBoth the committee and the trustees are
pledged to secrecy. . Other propositions
have failed to come to a head and it may
be thought that it was on account of un
due publicity.- In this case no such
matter will interfere. . It has been said
that the Dwyer proposition failed on
this account. At any rate, the
proposition now being considered
will not fail for the same reason. Astoria
has a most magnificent harbor. . The
people want to utilize it. They do not
see . what can keep the wheat of the
valley from coming directly into their
port. They say, and it has been the be
lief of every- railroad man who has
looked into the ma'tter, that it can be
done. One of the most confident of
Astoria's wealthy citizens is
EX-MATOB SAM ELMORE.
t He is sure of all these things and has
believed them for years. He has given
time and property to the work. A great
percentage of his land both .within and
without the -town has gone toward' a
subsidy. There is one belief which is
prevalent among the people of that city.
It is that to E. L. Dwyer is due the pres
ent situation."- Nearly every railroad
proposition,, and there are several ; that
has been made to Astoria'ns has come at
least indirectly, if not directly, through
his efforts. It was said yesterday by
many of the prominent men that were
Mr. ' Dwyer" to come . in at the last
moment with cash to build a road, that
is, just at the signing of a contract,
everything would be dropped and his
matter would be considered. - The As
torians fully appreciate the services Mr.
Dwyer has rendered. The Astoriana
firmly believe,, and they probably are
much mistaken in the belief, that Port
land is at present not in sympathy with
a road to Astoria! It was explained to
them that this was the position of some
well-know nr: bankers here -some years
ago, and, in fact, may yet be their be
lief. . They seem to think that because
this city has not interested itself finan
cially in the attempt to raise funds for
the road that it is antagonistic to one,
Should this contract, as" expected, be
signed, great developments miv ; be
looked for in the future. - -
Dlsagreftble and Dictatorial.
CaicAGO, March 7. Dr. Henery M.
Scndder, who is charged with murdering
his mother-in-law, and who is confined
in the detention hospital pending exam
ination as to his sanity, "seized a heavy
chair yesterday afternoon and with a
powerful swing brought it down on the
defenseless head of a lunatic. The
victim dropped as though he had been
shot, and the doctor was proceeding to
kill him when the attendants rushed up
and seized him. It required the com
bined strength of three men to disarm
the physician and put him in his cell.
When asked why he assaulted the luna
tic he saidt " Voices told me to do itv be
cause the man ' was in league with my
wife and the others against me." His
don and father called to see him this
morning.. He seemed pleased tor see
his eon, but would not speak to . his
father, who, he said, was in league with
the people who were trying to ruin him.
From the doctor's conversation it seems
that he considers that he is a victim of a
hugb conspiracy which began with ' his
arrest for irregularities in the insurance
matter. He appears to class the Dun ton
family as - the chief conspirators. A
young woman who has done considerable
work as a typewriter for Dr. Scudder.
says:. "I have had plenty of opportun
ities to study him, and I believe he is
perfectly sane. " He is a smart man, but
inclined to be disagreeable and dicta
torial." The First Battle

instructions to the committee on rules to
change the date of consideration of the
silver bill from March 22 to December

THE PROTESTING MAY CONVENTION.

THE SILVER BILL ALL THE TALK.
Gen. Alger Is Willing Democratic
ITpheaval in Maine Other
Buffalo, March 7. It is asserted by
Francis D. Locke, that Grover Cleveland
expresses himself as unalterably opposed
to the methods employed by the Hill
faction, and while he is careful not to
express his ieelings to any one connected
with the press, he does not hesitate to
denounce the February convention in no
uncertain language, to his intimate
friends. Mr. Locke said tonight the ex
president not long ago said to him he
was in thorough sympathy with the pro
testing May convention to be held in
Syracuse, and asserted that in his opin
ion it was the only way in which the
democrats of New York could properly
manifest their opposition to the methods
employed by Hill's friends. "Mr.
Cleveland said to me a few days ago,"
saidMr. Locke, "I am not a candidate
for the presidential nomination, but if
the convention sees fit to take action in -my
favor, I cannot refuse to accept."
This statement, coming as it does from a
bosom-friend of the Ex-President, is re-
garded as correctly . representing his
Significance of he Sliver Issue.
Washington, March 8. The eilver
men made a great inning yesterday, and
men in both parties who have been hop
ing it would be postponed until after -the
elections are convinced" tHe 'issuV" "
must be disposed of by the house before -the
date of the national convention.
The free-coinage men of both parties are,: .
of course, highly' elated. The gold men;
in the democratic party are filled - withe'
dismal. forebodings, while the anti-free-coinage
republicans, who comprise 85
per cent of the republican membership -"
in the house, are disposed to view the - .'
situation with complacency. It is now
possible that the presidential election
will turn upon the question of free coin
age of silver. The issue was squarely
made by the vote to fix a day for a vote
on the Bland bill. The eastern demo
crats mustered all their strength against
the report of the committee on rules and
could command only 84 votes. Ten of
these were republicans. The vote to fix.
a day to consider the bill was 190, five
sixths of it democratic.
- Portland Upside Down.
' Portland, Maine, March 7. The elec

democrats. They- gained control : of
the city government by electing a ma
jority of the city council and a mayor.
The common council gives the democrats
15 out of 28 votes and practically turns
out all the city officers. The city is
turned upside down tonight and the
democrats are parading the streets with
bands and torches. This is the first
time in years the democrats have gained
control of the city government,- electing
a majority council on joint' ballot, and
