Attendance at the World's Fair Yes
terday Was Catholic's Day.
Berlin, May 9. While reviewing the
troops in the field at Templehofer today
the German emperor ordered the prin
cipal officers of the imperial guards to
gather around him, and addressed them
as follows :
I have been seriously disappointed
in the patriotism of the late reichstag.
I hope the coming reichstag will adopt
the military bill, but if it should refuse
to adopt it I am determined to carry the
bill into effect despite the unpatriotic
The speech is causing enormous ex
citement among the people.
Catholics Day at the Fair.
Chicago, May 8. The attendance to
day promises to be the largest since the
opening day. lhe programme for the
day includes exer
cises by the Catho
lic Knights of
America, this be
ing their day at the
fair. Cardinal Gib
bons, who will take
a prominent part,
was born at Balti
more, Md., and is
about 59 years old.
At a very early age
he went to Ireland,
where he received his early education.
After his return to the United States he
entered St. Charles College, Howard
county, Md., from which he graduated
in 1858. Later he studied theology in
St. Mary's Seminary, Baltimore, and in
1861 was ordained a priest. His zeal
and untiring labor in the ministry,
rather than any marked intellectual
qualities, caused his rapid promotion in
the Catholic church. He succeeded
Archbishop Bayley as Archbishop of
of Baltimore in 1877.
Inscription on the CoJBn.
Sing Sing, N. Y., May 8. At 3 o'clock
Undertaker Kipp drove up to the prison
grounds. He procured the prison physi
cian's certificate of the cause of Harris'
death, and then drove into the prison
grounds. In his wagon was a highly
polished oak casket, which was carried
into the death chamber where the body
of Harris, dressed in a dark suit of
prison-made goods, reposed on a table.
The body was placed in the casket. The
undertaker refused to disclose bis plans
for the disposition of the body. The
silver plate upon the cover of the casket
contained this inscription :
Murdered May 8, 1893,
Aged 23 years, 7 months 15 days.
We would not if we had known."
There was a very impressive scene at
the Ambler house in the afternoon,
when Mrs. Harris saw the reporters.
The remarkable woman stood calm and
passive. Facing them with dry eyes
and a firm voice, she said :
"It has been said that Carlyle was
guilty because he shed no tears when
Helen Potts died. I shed no tears and
God knows I loved Carlyle Harris. My
boy is innocent. You men who saw
him die know he went to the chair an
innocent man. With his last words he
declared his innocence, and yet he has
been killed. He has been judicially
murdered. His last statement was to
have been given so soon as ke was dead,
and I have not received it yet. I do not
think I shall ever see it, at least not as
my boy wrote it. It was my boy's last
wish that it should be given out today,
but I am powerless to carry it out."
Warden Danston was asked for Car
lyle Harris' statement, which it was
understood, was prepared for the press.
Dunston promised to turn this state
ment over to Mrs. Harris, but this
afternoon he said he thought it best to
submit it to the superintendent of -prisons
first and be mailed it to that offi
cial this evening.
HARRIS DIED A CATHOLIC.
New York, May 9. The Rev. Father
Van Rensselaer, of St. Francis Xavier's
college, visited Carlyle Harris frequently
in the Tombs, but he was not present at
the execution. Father Van Rensselaer
said to a Sun reporter yesterday :
"Carlyle Harris became a Catholic
before be died. I called on him at the
TninKa of V. T ti Anrn ronnoDt AVkntit trn
days ago I received a letter from him J
asking me to call on him if his appea
was adversely settled. In answer to his
request, I went to see him last Friday at
Sing Sing. He expressed a desire to
become a Roman Catholic and to die in
the faith. I accordingly baptized him
conditionally, as he had been previously
baptized in the Episcopal faith. I also
heard his confession and granted him
absolution. I have never at any time
believed Harris guilty, and I do not
Cnban Revolutionary Party.
Key West, Fla., May 9. Owing to the
illness of Jose Marti, the manifesto of
the Cuban revolutionary party will not
be issued until tomorrow. Senor Marti
has been confined to his bed since Sat
urday night, but is not seriously ill.
Bands of Cubans have been in the habit
of drilling once or twice a week and al
ways on Sunday since the opening of
the year. Formerly they drilled near
the first mantello tower on the south
beach, but yesterday they retired en
tirely out of the sight of the curious, as
they thought, in the salt ponds property,
a mile or more beyond the limits of the
town. The council, composed of the
presidents of the revolutionary clubs in
this city, is in secret session tonight
with Senor Marti.
Against LocatlDB It at Rosebnrg.
Salem, May 8. In the circuit court of
Linn county D. C. Sherman has brought
proceedings against the trustees of the
Oregon soldiers' home, enjoining them
from locating the soldiers' home at Rose
burg, contrary to the provisions of the
state constitution. A temporary injunc
tion was granted and the defendants
cited to appear at Salem May 23d and
show cause why permanent injunction
should not issue as prayed for.
Republicans In Counsel.
Louisville, Ky., May 10. Special.
Hon. John L. Wilson of Spokane is in
the city and will be in attendance at the
meeting of the national republican com
mittee, the Tariff League and the Lin
coln League, which opens today. He
was joined at St. Paul by Hon. T. H
Carter of Helena, chairman of the
national committee. Mr. Wilson ex
pects to return about May 15th.
Cat in Rates on the Union Pacific.
Omaha, May 9. The Union Pacific
today took a hand in the Colorado rate
war by issuing an order to sell tickets
from Utah common points to Colorado
common points for $13, round trip $26.
The prevailing rates have been $25 and
Lincoln's Private Secretary.
Washington, May 8. News from
Martinsburg, W. Va., of the death of
Colonel Ward H. Lamon, President Lin
coln's private secretary and author of
the life of the martyred president, was
received here today.
Dowager Duchess of Sutherland.
It is reported the Dowager Duchess of
Sutherland, who has been sentenced to
six weeks' imprisonment in Holloway
$Sr. jail, for contempt of
court, is too ill to
undergo the sen
tence. The offense
of which the Dowa
ger Duchess is
guilty is the burn
ing of a paper given
her for inspection,
which stood in evi
dence in a will
made by the duke
who died in 1892. It is also said that
the paper had reference to the myster
ious death of her first husband. The
will referred to was very favorable to the
Dowager Duchess, and was contested by
the Marquis of Safford, who is a son of
the duke's first wife. Her imprison
ment in a common jail must be a shock
to all nobility worshipers, and would
tend to show that royalty is rather de
scending than ascending.
United Brethren in Christ.
Dayton, O., May 9. The general con
ference of the Church of United Brethren
in Christ will convene here Thursday.
For the first time in the hietory of the
church laymen have a voice in the body.
Ministers and laymen are arriving from
all parts of the United States. Five
bishops of the church are already here

Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report.
Weather Saturday the 6th was the
first spring day of the season. The total
precipitation amounted to over one inch
in the Willamette valley north of Lane
county and about Ashland ; while in
Lane, Douglas, Josephine and northern
Jackson counties it ranged from 0.50 to
0.70 of an inch. No frosts are reported.
Crops Fall-sown wheat on low lands
is somewhat injured. It was slightly
scalded by the hot sun of the 6th.
Barley is in head in parts of Marion and
Linn counties. Corn planting has been
greatly delayed ; the acreage of corn will
be increased over that of last year.
Hops are in places growing rapidly.
The hop acreage is expected to be con
siderably larger than last year. Garden
work is very late. Grass has a fine
growth and is very luxuriant. In the
interior valley fruit is generally in full
bloom. Present prospects are favorable
to a successful and bounteous harvest
notwithstanding the cold, rainy and
Weather Continued cold weather,
save the 6th, when it was warmer and
pleasant. The rains have been frequent
and on the night of the 7th very heavy
rain fell. Snow fell in the interior
counties, especially Grant, on the 3rd
and 5th. Sleighs are yet used over the
mountains from McEwen, Baker county.
Crops In the Columbia river valley
by another week most of the seeding
will be done. Wire worms are doing
damage to the wheat in parts of Sherman
county ; in parts of Morrow county the
ground squirrel is very destructive.
The wheat acreage is being increased,
especially in Morrow, Gilliam and Lake
counties. Fruit trees are generally in
full bloom and leaf throughout the Col
umbia river valley, while in the interior
tbe buds are swelling and are almost
ready to burst forth. Peaches have been
injured about Milton. While the seed
ing is late, the present prospects indicate
an excellent wheat harvest. The cold
season has been injurious to the lamb
crop. In some of the interior counties
the loss in young lambs has been 35 per
cent. Sheep shearing is in full blast in
many localities. Poplars are in leaf in
the Columbia river valley. The grass
has excellent growth and stock are im
proving. Rivers It is an undeniable fact that
there is more snow now in the mountains
than there has been at this season of the
year for many years past. A continua
tion of the present cool weather will al
low the snow to gradually melt and not
cause such a great flood in the Columbia
river and its tributaries as it would
should the snow melt rapidly under the
influence of a sudden warm period.
Precautions should be taken by all liable
to be affected by a flood in the Colum
bia. From June loth to 30th is usually
the period of the highest water in Col
