Oltmpia, Jan. 24. The following dis
patcli was today sent to President Har
rison and Secretary Foster by Turners
managers : On the 22d day of last De
cember, you sent to the United States
Senate the name of Fredrick J. Grant, of
Seattle, for envoy extraordinary and
minister plenipotentiary to Bolivia.
Special haste was made by the senate,
which went into executive session, the
judiciary committee having agreed not
to insist on an examination into the re
quirements of the candidate. Haste
was made in confirming the appoint
ment due to the fact that had.it been de
layed Mr. Grant could not have entered
upon his duties before January 4, to
which date congress on the 22d of De
cember had adjourned.
The Associated Press dispatches of
that date said : 'Mr. Grant will qualify
at once and proceed to Bolivia, by way
of England, where some matters involv
ing the three governments must be set
tled as soon as possible.' The Telegram
goes on to tell how Grant, 'instead of
going to Bolivia, is at Olympia, and de
plores the unusual spectacle of a diplo
matic minister of the government acting
as manager in a senatorial contest. The
dispatch closes: "You are looked
upon as a model chief executive of the
nation, and have it in yonr power to
stop such scandalous proceedings. Will
you doit? and save the republicans in
this state from total disruption?"

Portland, Jan. 25.- Special. Re
ports from Topeka show that when both
the house and senate met at noon to
ballot for United States senator, the
situation was very complicated. The
populists and democrats had not even
decided on a caucus nominee. The first
ballot In the republican house resulted :
.Ady, rep.. 62; four others scattering.
The populist house voted as follows:
Breidenthal, pop., 17; Coburn, 11 ; Dos
ter, pop., 13; Martin, fusion-dem., 9;
King, pop., 3 ; others scattering among
14 candidates. In the senate the vote
was as follows : Ady . 15, Doster 10,
Breidenthal 6, Martin 6, others scatter
ing; no choice.
Lincoln reports are to the effect that
in order to be sure the statutes are com
plied with the legislature yesterday took
two ballots for United States senator.
Each body balloted in its own House by
common consent to avoid a possibility of
future trouble. The' joint ballot was
taken at noon without change from yes
terday in. the relative strength of the
candidates. Power received 55, Pad
dock 25, Myers 13, Boyd 3, Ryan 2, re
It is thought, since the caucus last
night, that John MaKCn, a democrat
and a lawyer of Topeka, who was nom
inated by the populist caucus for sena
tor on the fourteenth ballot will be
elected, as members of the populist
house and populist senators, as well as
the democrats, will support him.

Gulesburg, 111., Daily Mail. J i
A prominent man said today that
within two years trains would be run
ning over .the" Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy road to Portland. The road is
graded from Merino, Wyo., to the Idaho
line, and will be extended to Boise next
year. lrom Boise the road will run
west to the Snake river where a spur
wil! be run up to connect with the Hunt
system in Washington, while the' main
line will run west and connect with the
Oregon Pacific. Burlington's coming
to the coast, however does not depend
upon its purchase of the Oregon Pacific.
If the Burlington does not purchase the
Hunt system, it will be built through
Washington, connecting with Tacoma,
Lake Park, and Columbia river, surveys
for the extension of which are now being
made in Cascade mountains. This line
is considered- the Burlington interest
and will give this road an outlet to

Union Journal. The Oregon legisla
ture shows great wisdom in appointing a
committee to visit the Walla Walla jute
mill, investigate its cost, value to the
state, so far as earning capacity and as a
means of the healthy employment of
convicts is concerned. Oregon could
well afford to appropriate $200,000 or
$250,000 for a jute mill establishment,
which would furnish employment for
400 men, save the farmers of the state a
cent on each sack used in the state's
grain fields and would at the same time
earn at least five per cent, on the invest

WASHisciwrCJan. 25. Special! The
sudsWTT and unexpected death of Hon. L.
Lamar, associate justice of the
supreme court, at his home in Macon,
Ga., on the 23d, has already caused .
much speculation as to his successor.
In a conversation on the subject, last
evening Congressman Moore of Texas,
"The' particular person who will be
chosen is not considered so much as the
question whether Harrison will make a
nomination to fill the vacancy or leave
the matter open for President-elect
Cleveland's action. It is certain in view
of the 'attitude of certain democratic
senators toward the nomination of Mc
Comas, to be judge of the court of the
district of Columbia, that a nomination
by Harrison would be antagonized to the
end of the session, and defeated if pos
sible. In view of that fact, it is probable
the president will not care to provoke a.
bitter controversy and will, take no
action ; but it can be said he will come
to- no determination upon the matter,
and will not consider it even for several
days at least, should lie decide to make
a nomination. The probabilities are a
member of the United States judiciary
within Justice Lamar's old circuit will
be honored by the appointment. This
circuit embraces ' Alabama, Florida,
Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and

Pendleton Tribune. There are two
measures before the Oregon legislature
which should be most heartily supported
by every eastern Oregonian. The one is
the repeal of the mortgage indebtedness
clause in the taxation law. The other
is the portage railway bill.
