THE VfCLAlN MAKES HIS ESCAPE
A Forlorn Lover Who Wanted to Com
mit Suicide Because His Girt
Would Not Marry Him. '
San Jobs, Cal., Feb. 20. A cold
blooded murder took place at Wright's
last night shortly after 6 o'clock. The
trouble arose at a stable occupied by the
Southern Pacific Company, for keeping
teams which are workingona large slide
at the tunnel there.- J. H. -Roth was at
the stable putting up his horse after his
day's work, when J. W. Frost, the mur
derer, entered the stable, and when asked
by Roth . what he wanted, remarked :
"None of your business." After the al
tercation had continued several minutes,
Frost produced a pocket knife and
asked Roth how he would like to have
four inches of it, showing the deadly
weapon.' Before Roth could answer,
Frost plunged the deadly knife into bis
throat, killing him instantly, and fled.
Frost has been employed by the South
ern Pacific company at this place. He
is still at large.
The Result of Annexation.
Washington, Feb. 20. Anticipating
the ratification of the Hawaiian annex
ation treaty by both the United States
senate and the provisional government
of Hawaii, the' military and naval au
thorities are discussing what should be
done for the preservation of peace on
the islands pending the establish
ment of a permanent government. It
is realized, from . the heterogeneous
character of the population of the island
and the general tendency of the native
element to revolution, that peacefully to
maintain American sovereignty over the
island there must be' a proper display of
military from the time annexation be
comes an established fact, In this con
nection the advisability of sending
troops of the regular army to the islands
fa being informally seriously iscussed
by many officers: The navy people, as
a rule, believe the sailors and marines
should be utilized "for the purpose, but
are forced to admit that by reason of the
limited number of naval vessels at hand
it might be advisable to send several
batteries of artillery from California, to
remain at Honolulu until some of the
new vessels can be sent from this coast.
Under the permanent form pf govern
ment to be established by legislation, it
is suggested there should be a standing
army organized from the inhabitants of
the islands. - A number of American
Officers, it has been further suggested,
Bhould .be detailed to perfect the organi
zation, and when the United States has
established the proposed .coaling station
in Pearl harbor there should - be an
American garrison to defend the en
trance to the harbor.
Only Female ' LcomotiTi Kngloesr.
; Cairo, W. Ya., Feb.. 20. Miss Ida
Hewitt, who is said to be the only
female locomotive engineer in the world,
has been engaged by the women com
missioners of the world's fair to run the
first train over the grounds on the open
ing day of the exposition. . She will
leave here for Chicago about a week
before the opening day. She is a. pretty
girl, 'and during the first trip of the
engine will wear a costume of a Spanish
girl of the 14th century. In reply to a
proposition made to Miss Hewitt to be
come a member of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers it is reported
that she replied that, while she could
not find it in her heart to become a
brother to them, she . would be a sister
to them as long as she lived. The com
missioners are said to have had a great
deal of trouble in inducing her to run
the engine at the fair, as she - shrank
from appealing as a sort of "freak."
The road upon which-Miss: Hewitt is
now running regularly is the Cairo &
Little Kanawana, owned mostly by the
girl's" father, a man of wealth. She is
popular . socially, and is a model house
keeper. .'.'. '
The Coming; Yacht Race.
Chicago, Feb. 20. J. .A. Carnegie, a
well-known attorney and yachtman of
Glasgow, Scotland, is , at the Palmer
house. "Our people are intensely in
terested in the construction of Lord
Dunravort's yacht, which is to race your
American boat," said he. "I may say,
too, that with scarcely an exception
they favor sending, the Thistle, the
Prince of Wales yacht.. We. do not
think a faster yacht can be built. She
was constructed by Henderson, without
doubt the best yacht builder in Glasgow,
and it is generally understood that Lord
Dunraven's boat will come from" his
yards: The; race will probably call as
many Scotchmen to this country as the
A' Republican Trick:.
. Topeka, Feb. 20. Governor Lewel
ling this afternoon gave to the Asso
ciated Press an official ' statement, in
writing regarding the late unpleasant
ness. He says the republicans boast of
having, carried the Ifight. The t fact is,
the populists have never lost sight of
the central idea in the contest the
preservation of the populist house. ' It
was to destroy this house the republi
cans made the fight, and failed. Had
they succeeded, it would haye thwarted
all reform legislation. They know the
laws passed by it are valid ; that to de
clare otherwise the supreme court would
have to revise all respectable precedents
at a partisan demand and face a wave of
public, indignation unparalleled since
the notorious Judge Trescilian was fol
lowed to the scaffold by an outraged
people who exalted at his just but
shocking execution. Corporate greed
was determined ' to prevent the enact
ment of reform measures by the popu
lists. The governor then goes on to
enumerate the acts of the republican
house intended to extinguish the house
of populists, beginning with the at
tempted arrest of its chief clerk and to be
followed by the arrest of enough papa
list members to break the quorum.
This, he adds, did not succeed, and,
though the republicans succeeded in a
compromise in driving the populists
from the' hall, their organization is still
intact. Even this was brought about
through the disloyalty - of the state
militia and the county sheriff. He de
clared that the militia has been recruited
and doctered to this end for ' two years.
Unmasking the republican treason, per
jury and lawlessness richly compensates
the ' populists for all the indignities
suffered. " .:.
Yesler "Will Case.
8eattlk, Wash., Feb. 20. The widow
of Yesler was this afternoon bound over
to the superior court by Justice Hum
phrey on .a charge of conspiring with
Dr. J. Eugene Jordan and Dr. H. Mar
tin VanBnnen to destroy the will of her
millionaire husband, the late Henry L.
Yesler, "father of Seattle." - The hear
ing of the evidence occupied eight days
and the argument four days. The jus
tice took four days to consider the mass
of evidence. A motion is now being
argued for a change of venue in the
matter of the charge of forgery against
Mrs. Yesler in connection with the will.
Her bonds have been placed at $1 ,000.
It's sometimes said patent medicines

this idea. "The people." we're told,
"are mostly ignorant when it comes to
medical science." Suppose they are 1

edge, but a cure, and a medicine that
cure is the medicine for the sick. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery cures
the "do believes" anL. the "don't be

no "if" nor "possibly." It says "I
can cure you, only do as I direct." Per
haps it fails occasionally. The makers
hear of it when it does, because they
never keep the money when the medi

It Is Doubtful if the Amendment Can
Be. Retained When the Bill
Reaches the House.
Washington, Feb. 29. Senator
Mitchell was fortunate today in getting
through an amendment to the sundry
civil bill, increasing the limit of the cost
of the Port of Portland public buildings
from $500,000 as it first stood, to $1,000,
000. It will, of course, take a hard fight
to keep the house from cutting out thia
amendment, as the economists there
will do all in their power to prevent the
increase. Senator Mitchell's amend
ment also appropriates $25,000 in addi
tion to the $250,000 - formerly appro
priated. Senator Squire today discovered an
error in the report of expenditures at
the Cascades, it being shown that $200,
000 was expended in 1889, when only
$100,000 was appropriated for that par
pose'. It did not make any difference in
the aggregate, but the discovery of the
error caused a great deal of chagrin in. -the

. Why "Bab" Likes Dogs.
Grant Dispatch Cor.
Between you and me, Mr. Editor, I
think a dog is a healthful companion for
almost any human being. His tastes
are not depraved, and he will never lead
you into any mischief. He declines go
ing into bed early, and he adores a swim.
He won't sit up all night while you play
poker, but go out for a ride, and see how
he'll chase after the horse's heels. He
will lead you into every good sport, and
to nothing bad. "But," says some One.
"dogs are your jfad." My dear sir, the
man or womaa who doesn't like dogs is
wrong.- It is as natural for human be
ings to like a dog as it is to like a baby ;
and a household without one or the
other of course, any well-regulated
household has both isn't worth belong
ing to. ,
I like doga, because I know so many
men and women, . -
. I like dogs, because they always see
my virtues, and ignore my vices.
I like dogs, because they are' friends'
through good report and evil report;
through poverty and through riches.
I like dogs, because they are faithful
and generous. ,r
I like dogs, because they are full of a
certain simplicity that finds pleasure in.
very little things.
How can I help liking dogs?

benefit of his experience with colds. He

spring that settled on my lungs, and had
hardly recovered from it when I caught
another that hung on all summer and
left me with a hacking cough which I
thought I never would get rid of. I Lad

some fourteen years ago with much suc
cess, and concluded to try it again.
When I got through with one bottle my
cough had left me, and I have not suf
