THE INDUSTRIAL ARMY
Tbey Have Starteft on Tbelr March to
A FREIGHT. GIVES THEM A BOOST
Miss Pojlard Tells the Shameful Story
of Col. Breckenridge's Conduct .
Ontabio, Cal.,' March 19. The indus
trial army reached here at 5 o'clock
last evening, numbering 640 men in four
organized companies. A large delega
tion of Ontario people met them, hut as
it was eundown and all the stores were
cloeju they did not fare sumptuously,
several boxes of oranges being the
limit jT the contributions by the citizens.
After supper they marched to the
Southern Pacific depot with the inten
tion of taking a freight train due at 7 :30.
They lined up in front of the depot and
their captain went . among the men,
warning them not to disturb the seal a of J
the cars or to do any damage whatever.
'The trainmen, however, evidently had
knowledge of their intention?, :or in
stead of stopping, as is castoiua.i v, the
whistle gave warning, and the. train
passed by at fall speed. The army took
it good naturedly, saying that they could
go in the morning just as well. . About
6 o'clock this morning the local freight
came along ; the members of the army
clambered aboard and left for Col ton,
the trainmen making no resistance, even
waiting until all got aboard. ' The mem
bers of the army were-certainly well be
haved in Ontario, were orderly and well
officered! During the night a picket line
was established, and no one was allowed
to enter or leave camp without permis
sion. HIS POWER Of PERSUASION.
' Miss 'OPollard Telia the .Story of Her
WAsmNGTOx-,March 19. The bailiffs
had the utmost difficulty in repelling the
crowds who sought admittance to the
courtroom where .the. Pollrd-Breckin-
ridge trial is in progress. Miss Pollard
was again on the stand under direct ex
amination. She related in greater de
tail than heretofore the attempts of
Breckinridge to seduce her. He told
her she had a wonderful intellect, and
had a brilliant future. "I seemed, to be
completely under the influence of his
wonderful power of persuasion," she
said. Ho promised to oversee her edu
cation and repay the money paid by
Rhodes for her schooling. "He did not
accomplish his purpose the first day," in
spite of his violent attempts," she con
tinued, "and it was only late the second
day when we were in the house of assigna
tion in Cincinnati." The relations then
established, she averred, continued till
May 17, 1893, the last time . she saw
Breckinridge. It will be remembered
this is a date subsequentto Breckinridge's
marriage to Mrs. Wing, which occurred
eecretly April 29, 1893. Then cross-examination
was resu med by Butterworth

To assure both the above ends,
good, wholesome, palatable food is
demanded. It is next to impossible
to present a sufficient variety of appe
tizing bills of fare for our meals with
out a liberal allowance of pastry and
other food in which shortening is
required. How to make crisp,
healthful, digestible pastry has
puzzled the cooks. A difficulty in
all good cooking in the past has been,
lard. Always fickle, never uniform,
most unwholesome lard has always
been the bane of the cook and the
obstacle to ''good digestion.1

In the course of her examination, wit
ness explained the circumstances of the
alleged visit to Squire Kinsey's house
in Bridgeport, Ky., where she stopped
in 1892 and 1893. Some of the names
mentioned she did not remember, but
recalled that of Alex Julian, a blind man
between whom and plaintiff1 defence will
try to show a mock marriage and sub
sequent unseemly proceedings at Squire
Kinsey's. She declared Julian would
not have even dared to caress her. sShe
did not remember any mock marriage,
and moreover her uncle George was
with her at the time, He was very
strict, and would not allow anything of
the sort. Several letters ' were shown
her, one of which she admitted having
written at Owen Robinson; others she
might have written, she said. One con
tained a lock of hair. The letters were
then read. They -were of the school
girl character, with expressions of a
more or less love-sick ' character. She
said she and Owen were good friends,
but there was no love affair between
them.' v -
BRECKINRIDGE FOR PRESIDENT.
He Would Be tbe Strongest Man the
Democracy Could Name.
Hood River, March 19, 1894.
Editoe'Cheonicle I clip this from
The Chronicle clipped from the Ore
W. C. P. Breckinridge ought to be ex
pelled from congress. He is utterly un
lit to hold a eeat among decent and hon-J
orable men. The testimony showing
his conduct toward Miss Pollard testi
mony of a character that cannot be
impeached is the blackest record
proven against any public man within
many years. A resolution for bis expul
sion from the house ought to pass with
out a dissenting vote.- It is incredible
that tbe people of his district should
ever think of returning him to congress.
In the Oregonian of March 17th I find
' the following :
The Breckinridge-Pollard case is not
profitable reading. It is a pity the girl
hadn't a male relative -to keep it 'out of
court by providing material for a con
gressional funeral. The shotgun is the
only remedy lor offenses like that of this
Is Breckinridge's treatment of Miss
Pollard any more infamous than was tbe
treatment of Maria Halpin by Grover
Cleveland? Ougbt Grover Cleveland to
be kicked out of the white house for
doing what Breckinridge did? If Breck
inridge is elected as the next demo
cratic president, and is as sound on the
silver question as is Grover, his right
hand bower, will the Oregonian give
him the same laudations it has qhowered
on Grover? Tbe publication of the
Breckinridge scandal seems to be unfor
tunate for all parties opposed to CI eve
landism or "mugwump democracy."
The mugwump Clevelandites have been
Borely pressed to find a candidate to run
for president. Miss Pollard, with her
magic wand, has smitten the . ground,
and up rises Breckinridge as the "com
ing man." ' Let the democrats nominate
him and every democrat will vote for
him. (I speak only positively for the
"bed rocks" in Mosier and Hood River
precincts). Breckinridge, would carry
all the democratic votes with few ex
ceptions, and might be elected over any
other decent man. Let the democratic
papers hoist the name of W. C. Breck
inridge as their candidate fpr presi
dential honors. W. L. Adams.
. New Care for Typhoid Fever.
St. Louis, March 19. Dr. Heine
Marks, superintendent of the city hos

fever can be cured quickly and surely by
a surgical operation. An incision is
made in the abdomen just above the
ileocaeeal valve, then insert a tube in
the intestines at a ' point where the
bacilli of these diseases work, and flood
them with an antiseptic solution, killing
the bacilli. - '

Simmons Liver Regulator

A Novel Discovery.
Unfortunately it seems to be the style
in these times for one to decry his own
city, and in conversation to recall all the
disadvantages, without saying anything
about the advantages, and to be contin
ually wailing and wishing that' he were
in some other place, where of course, he
would be under more favorable auspices.
Fully realizing all this, it is refreshing
and encouraging to us, who have the
prosperity of our fair city at heart, and
thoroughly ; believe in its -ultimate
triumph over all the petty, doubts and
perplexities, to find at least a broad
standpoint, and seeing the many reasons
we have to congratulate ourselves are
willing to stake their judgment, time
and money, upon the steadily increasing

The reporter of this paper was shown
through tbe "store of Pease & Mays and
was amazed at the magnitude of the
spring stock which they are arranging
for sale, and was greatly interested in
the many changes and improvements
that have been made in the interior.
We notice, and it seems strange to us
that no one had thought of it before,
that they had adde'd a toilet room for
ladies," the floor nicely covered with '
linoleum, marble wash basin and in fact
all the conveniences for the toilet. In
the brick building formerly used for tbe
storage of oil, they have a gentlemen's
toilet room, also a dressing room. This
latter room, nicely carpeted, furnished
with mirror, chairs, etc., is a very con
venient place for customers to try on
clothing. The balance of this building
they will devote' to the receiving and
shipping of merchandise, as they insist
that' their main salesroom shall at all
times be neat and free from the noise
and confusion attendant upon the open
ing and packing of goods for shipment.
While our reporter is not perhaps a
competent judge to pass upon the merits
of goods designed to please the feminine
eye, still he would be willing to risk his
reputation as a man of taste, upon the
statement, that the spring stock of
Pease & Mays is all that the most fas
tidious and exacting of our ladies could
desire. From prices made upon a few
articles, whose value we are acquainted
with, we do not hesitate to say, that the
economically disposed person, seeking
the most for his money, can here make
purchases and be thoroughly satisfied
Taking it all in all, it would seem to us
that Pease & Mays are trying to give us
of The Dalles an up-to-date store, both
in service and goods, and we trust that
they may have tbe encouragement which
we think they certainly deserve.

, A Sensational Rescue.
Chicago, March 19. People in the
vicinity of- a new grain elevator in pro
cess of erection1 Saturday afternoon were
horrified to see Joseph Coates, car
penter, slip on the roof and slide rapidly
to the edge. As he was going over the
edge Coates grabbed a wall plate with
his right hand and hung to ifr, bis body
susDended at a height of 100 feet. . His
fellow-workmen were paralyzed with
fright and two of them fainted. The
others soon recovered their senses and
set about to rescue Coates. All this
time Coates was crying out to those in
sound of his voice to save him. In the
course of a few seconds the horror
stricken watchers on the bridge below
saw a man appear at a window, and be
hind him several other men. The first
man leaned forward until it seemed as if
he would tumble headlong, but strong
hands put a stout rope about his body
and held him securely while he reached
out and grasped the man hanging from
the wall platform and' succeeded in get
ting him to the window ledge. , Then,
with an almost superhuman effort, he
brought him through the window. The
rescued man, when he found himself
saved, fell over in a dead faint, and the
rescuer, William Jones, another car
penter, collapsed completely. A faint
cheer reached those in the room at the
top of the elevator. Coates, when he
was finally revived, was in such a ner
vous condition that he had to be assisted
home by two., of his fellow-workmen.
