The Chinese show little eagerness to
register under the provisions of the
Geary registration law, and in some
places they are even being inf uenced
by their more enlightened brethren not
to do so. A Chinaman will be arrested
in New York City on May 6th, and a
test case made to find out whether or
not the law is constitutional.
The bland smile of the ex-postmaster
general today rivalled the genial sun
light. He seemed even more glad to
see everybody than everybody was to
see him, but those Who were disap
pointed may console themselves with
the thought that they are good men, and
that Wanamaker is a good man and that
there is still a chance in heaven.

The hosts then gave a dance, Miss Alma

A SAD ACCIDENT.
Martin S. Shrceder Killed While Re
turning from the Picnic.
After the pleasures , of the picnic at
Cascade Locks yesterday, a gloom was
cast over the whole party on the return
trip by the accidental death of Martin
Shrceder. The Regulator had proceeded
about five miles on its homeward jour
ney, when the cry was raised "man
overboard," and the wheels were at
once stopped. In the rear of the boat
was seen the body of the boy still float
ing, and in fact had not sunk at all.
There was no struggle and it was evi
dent the boy was stunned. The boat
was reversed, and in a very short time
was alongside the body, when it was
recovered with a boat hook and brought
to the deck. Efforts were made to re
suscitate the boy, but without avail.
The testimony at the coroner's inquest
developed the fact that the boy had been
jumping in the stairway, and had in
some way lost his footing and struck his
head in such a way as to produce un
consciousness, falling to the foot of the
stairs and thence off the side of the boat.
No one is to blame for the casualty, and
it proved to be one of those unavoidable
calamities which cannot be foreseen or
When Shrceder first fell overboard
William Scott, a deck hand, without a
moment's pause, jumped overboard and
tried to reach the boy, and would have
done so had not the greater speed of the
boat anticipated him. He was drawn
in thoroughly chilled by the ice-cold
water, and for a time was so weak and
benumbed as to require attention him
self. He performed a hero's part, how
ever, in risking his life to save a passen
ger. The D. P. & A. N. Co. showed
their appreciation of the brave man's
services by tendering him a $50 cash
The boy did not come to his death by
drowning, but by some violent knock, of
which two bruises on the head give evi
dence, the one on the temple being said
by the doctors as sufficient to cause un
Martin S. Shrceder is 11 years old, and
is the son of Mrs. M. Shrceder, now Mrs.
Wedekind. Shrceder was killed some
years ago in a wreck at the Cascades.
Another.child of Mrs. Wedekind (Schrce
der) is still living.
The following is the verdict of the
coroner's jury :
We, the jury impanneled to inquire
into the cause of the death of Martin
Shrceder, who came to his death by
drowning in the Columbia river April
26th, 1893, hereby find that the said
deceased came .to his death by an una
voidable accident, by falling overboard
the steamer Regulator, and we further
find that the officers and management
of the D. P. & A. N. Co. used every
effort to rescue the deceased and hereby
exonerate said company, both officers
and management, from any blame or
carelessness connected with the death of

Geo. Walder, Rev. Dr. Miller, and Mr.

line, en route to the World's Fair from
a Pacific coast trip.

Arrived at Pease & Mays store he in
terested himself in the Indian baskets
which he thought were made by siwash
es, and was about to make a large
purchase, when Mr. Pease, despite all
bis good commercial training, spoiled
the sale by telling him they were made
by the St. Regis Indians in New York
state. Not yet discouraged, the postmaster-general
next went to Sam Kline's
and invested $2 in .arrow heads, which
be may be assured are genuine, though
his experience at the dry goods store
may have somewhat dampened his ar
dor for a large purchase. The train
was delayed a few minutes by the trans
action, but the obliging conductor, with
that good breeding characteristic of all
Americans, never showed any perturb
ation or annoyance.
The Geary Act.
Russ T. Chaniberlin, U. i S. internal
revenue collector, arrived today, and
will give the Chinese an opportunity to
register if they wish. No photographs
are to be taken and there is nothing
humiliating about the experience, but it
is doubtful if they will do so. They
merely have to swear that they have
been in the country since the 5th of May
last. They are then furnished with a
certificate allowing them residence.
After the 5th of May, next, according to
the Geary law, if they cannot produce
this certificate they are to forfeit their
residence and must go beyond our
borders. Mr. Chamberlin says that
the Chinese of the larger towns have
not registered, acting under the advice
of the Six Companies, but he has secured
some of the smaller towns unanimously,
such as Heppner, Hillsboro and Arling
ton. Mr. Chamberlin must report in
