VOL. X THE DALLES, OREGON. THURSDAY. OCTOBER 28, 1897 NO 250 HOME RULE THE BASIS How Spain Proposes to In stitute Reforms. THE SPANISH PLANS OUTLINED Madrid Government Retains Executive Power and Administers Na tional Affairs.. MR New Yoek, Oct. 27. A dispatch to the Herald from Madrid says : Senor Morel y Frendergast, the new colonial minister, has outlined for the Herald his plans for Cuban reform as follows : - The autonomy which the cabinet of Senor Sagasta propose? to bestow on the islands of Cuba and Porto Rico in ful fillment of the manifesto of Jane 14lh, is a special autonomy founded on the aspirations adopted in the platform of the Antillian autonomists and not ident ical with the other colonial constitu tions. It is clear that in their essential principles- the future constitution of Cuba and Porto Rico agree with those colonial constitutions that start from self-government as the capital ideal self legislation, responsible to the govern ment; supremacy -of the governor who, either under that name or the name of viceroy, shall . represent the mother country, and who shall choose the min isters who shall be the executive in that country. t Starting from the above basis.the pro ject of the Spanish government contains the first partition of those matters and concerns that belong to the colonial par liament and to the imperial parliament, that is to the national cortes. The par tition is founded on a careful discrimi nation between what interests the islands themselves have in a local sense and what is of national importance. The project in operation will interpret in the moBt generous manner the phrase "local interests," since it will not only grant to the colonists complete, control of all that relates to education, - charity, etc., but it also intrusts to representa tives of the local government the r in tit of drawing upon their customs tariff without. limitations beyond those mutu ally arranged. ' With the metropolis to co-ordinate in their respective mercantile and commer cial interests, the above functions will be performed by an insular chamber to tally electoral in nature without restric tion as to subsequent subdivisions into two similar chambers that is,the bouse of representatives and the members of this parliament shall be elected by the eame suffrage system which regulates the election on the peninsula. The same legislative body shall represent Cuba in the imperial parliament, only this as sembly has been constituted with the governor-general as the representative of the central power. It shall choose the ministers who shall be the execu tive body responsible to the insular par liament, thus completing the reorgani zation or the parliament as its govern ment, and endowing it with that degree of responsibility characteristic of every colony administered on the principles of self-government. . . The ministers shall be responsible to the colonial parliament, and every en actment of the governor-general, as' rep resentative of the executive power In all that touches the local government shall be administered in the council. Of these ministerial functions reserv ed to the metropolis are : First, those that concern internation al relations ; second, military and naval matters ; third, organizateon of the law courts; fourth,' those depositions' that jrr.

Bradford, health officer's boatman, and the nan ow escape from drowning of four other men, occurred ye&etrday morning about 10 o'clock, when the unlucky German ship Flott bek was making ready to put out ta sea Bradford started down the river in his Whitehall to put . Pilot Doig on board the Flottbek. . Besides the boatman and the pilot, there were also in. the boat Captain Schumacher, of the Flottbek, and J. M. Gillette and son. The sail was hoisted at Flavel's dock, and in a few moments they were at the side of the vessel. . Bradford then stepped on the gunwal to unstep the mast, when the frail and overloaded craft upset, turning bottom uppermost. " All five of the struggling men grasped the keei of the upturned boat, only to cause it again to turn over. ' The struggle continued for several minutes, the boat turning over repeat edly, until Bradford was eteuck on the head by the gunwale. He at'ouce sank and did not reappear. The others man aged to cling to . the boat until it had drifted as. far as Kinney's cannery, where they were picked up by two fish' ermen. Joe rescuers arrived none too soon as Doig was sinking when grasped bv one of the fishermen. .

A special to the Times from Omaha says: . The Union Pacific sale will take place as scheduled. From absolutely autentic sources it was learned that two certified checks, each for $2,000,000, were depos ited with Judge Cornish, matter , in chancery, at the United States National bank today. They come from the Sage syndicate and the recognization commit tee. ' . ' It is asserted there will be sharp com petition between the Sage syndicate and the recognization committee. Eyes are popularly considered to be quite necessary to sight, but this is an error, if we are to believe Dr. Nagel, a recent German experimenter. Many creatures.without eyes enn see, at last they can distinguish perfectly well be tween light and darkness, and even be tween different degrees cf light. This is the lowest degree of seeing-, to be sure, but still it is really sight, and dif fers scarcely more from the visions of some insects that possess, eyes than this does from our own clear sight. . Creatures that see without eyes ee by means of their skins. All skins. ays Dr. Nagel, are potential eyes; 'fiat is, they are sensitive to, light. In an imals that have eyes the sensitiveness kas been highly localized and greatly increased so that man, for instance, Jias a retina very sensitive to light, and an expanse of ordinary skin which possesses a sensitiveness to light so slight that it is hardly conscious of it. Yet the sVra is sensitive in some de gree, as is proved by the fact that it sunburns that is, light maj- cause a disturbance in the pigment of the skin just us it docs in that of the eye. In the eye the disturbance is accompanied by a nervous chancre which sends a telegraphic message along the optic nerve to the brain. : In the skin, too. there are nerves, and there are mes sages, also, but their tidings imprint no image on the mind; they simply express discomfort cry out "sun burn." . But in many eyeless creatures the lack of eyes is in part made up by ini- creased sensitiveness of the whole skin surface to light. Darwin long ago noticed that the earthworms, although they have no eyes, will suudtnly with draw intJ their holes on the approach of a lighted candle. Sonte crtaturcs 6cem more sensitive to r.uddenlv increased light,-others to sudden diminution. If a number of oysters, kept in a vessel together, are found to be open, they v.m sliut all at once if a dark obieet comes between them and the. light. nother bivalve Called Psammodia. has. long, whitish, transparent tubes which protrude from the sand in which it lies buried. If thev are smldenlv il luminated, they contract, nnd the brighter the light.the greater the con traction. If a number cf them be car ried into direct sunlight, they hasten to bury themselves in the sand; or, if there is no sand, theymove restlessly to end fro in the water until they are exhausted. Ill general. Dr. Nagel finds; that creatures winch respond to sudden shadows tire those that live in Etrong sheila, while those affected by a sud den increase or light live in sand or mud, frcm which they emerge occasion ally. In both cases the sensitiveness of the skin to changes of light serves to protect the animal. .''., How does the skin acquire this pe culiar sensitiveness? It will be best for the non-cspcrt to suspend jud ment, since even the scientists do not agree on this point. It may be that it is a universal and rudimentary prop erty of all skin, and that animals with eyes have lost it in a greater or less de gree, because they have no further need for it.' This is one view. Or it may be that this property has"been devel oped in eyeless creatures just because they are eyeless and need it. That ia another view. ' Those who favor the lat ter opinion point to the fact that some of the creatures which now. have skins sensitive to the light are. probably de scendants of creatures with skins not so sensitive: in, these instances the sensitiveness, must have been recently developed. .Snails are sensitive, but their relatives, the slugs, are not; this looks as if the former had acquired the faculty. However this may be. Dr. Nagel's study of these curious an3 out- of-the-way facts is certainly interest ing, and may lead in the future to an ad vance in our knowledge of the mechan ism of eight.
