WASHINGTON LETTER.
From our Regular Correspondent.
Washisotos, Jan.' 27th, 1888.
The new broom has already begun
to sweep in the international de
partment where certain restrictions
have . been imposed by Secretary
Vilas, under Mr. Lamar and some of
his predecessors, it was the custom
to admit visitors to the building be
tween the hours of 10 a. m. and 2 p.
m., but Mr Vilas has placed the limit
at 1 o'clock. He baa taken another
departure bj annoonciug that in
receiving callers, preference will be
given to senators and members and
emr7t -f Aif
Heretofore it has been the rule at
the pension office to excuse the
clerks from duty at 3 o'clock p. m.
on Saturday. Now they are re
quired to work until 4 p. m., the
same as do the clerks iu the other
bureaux of the department. Even
the minutest details of departmental
work bhows evidence of the change
of heads, much to the discomfiture
of Uncle Sam's self-styled "slaves."
At the postoffice department,
things are working smoothly, aud
no change iu the old order is per
ceptible. Still you need not be
surprised if the changes iu that
brunch of the government service
are more numerous iu proportion
than ever before. The postoffice is
the spoilsman's paradise, and Mr.
Dickinson is not so inuc-Ii of a mug
wump as Vilas. Dickinson and
Stevenson, his first assistants, make
a combination that delight the
hearts of the democratic politicians.
The democratic congressmen from
the tobacco growing states have re.
quested the removal of Statistician
Dodge, of the agricultural depart
ment. Their grievance ia that he
overestimated the Kentucky tobacco
crop last mi miner. Mr. Dodge is a
republican who has held his present j
position twenty-two years. !
Kx-'ustice Strong, of the United 1
Stale Supreme court, questioned!
the constitutionality of the IMair
educational bill, and expresses the
opinion that his views are those of1
his former associates, now on the
bench. This is a strong argument
jnolHtle influence.
As the subject of prohibition is
Gne of especial interest just now.
I will mention that Congressman '
Hayes, of Iowa, has placed himself
on record tor the second time iu j
opposition to the cause. When j diana, was in command of the 20th In
circuit judge in Iowa, he decided j diana volunteer iu the battle of Clotty..
that prohibition was uncoustitu- burg. A Minnie ball cnten'd his fore,
tioual, and he has this week refused ! head, almost !et wo n the eyes, and he
' tn meseiit to eonciess a netition !
I o - ;
from his state praying for prohibition j
in the District of Columbia. He I
dling when they attempt to force I
upon the District legislation in a ;
matter that he calls "of merely I
local concern." j
That brilliant but indolent man, 1
, L. . C. Iiamar, is apparently enjoy-
' i nv t hn 'iiFAW ii i ti ft rf a 1 1 f n
i ii i ii v vtun uuuui a-a uicr itiv.
He is peacefully reposing upon the
restful wool-sack, where his slum
bers will not be disturbed by the
demands of annoying departmental
duties nor the incessant impor
tunities of the office-seekers. The
court can distribute no patronage,
and as for real work, are there not
eight other justices besides Lamar
to do it?
The president has thrown another
crumb of comfort timely enough
to the civil service reformer in ac
cepting the "resignation" of I'nited
States District Attorney Harris, who
took a prominent part in the recent
notorious municipal election at Jack
son, Mississippi. As you remem
ber, this has been the subject of
congressional discussion. The of
ficial in question, in quitting office,
says he retires to relieve the presi
dent of embarrassment. Those near
the throne declare that Mr. Clove
laud wus not nearly so much em
barrassed as a certain young subor
dinate, whose resignation was gently
requested.
A Wonderfully Knowing; Ot.
Said Mr. Rowditch, the well
known druggist, with a merry
twinkle of his eye; "I've got some
knowiug cats. A fellow was giving
me some stiff talk alout a trained
dog of his. o I told hi ui that I had
a cat that could tell the different
denominations of money. He didn't
believe it, o I took a 11 bill and a
$5 bill and unbeknown to him
scented the 11 with catnip. I then
laid the bills on the floor and said to
the cat, 'Now, Tom, take your
choice, but you are a fool if you
don't take the fiver.' The cat jumped
down and studied the bills and
finally with bis paw poked to one
side the one with catnip on it. Well,
sir, that fellow hasn't recovered yet
from the surprise that cat's sagacity
gave him." Kennebec Journal

One of the uioet curious freaks of
nature was a pair of twins horn to the
wife of Doak Reed, near Oakadale last
week. They were girls joined together
similar to the Siamese twins, but face to

As an outcome of the agitation of the
comity doht question, commenced by the
Transcript, a number of the heavioHt tax
payers of Jackson county called a meet
ing last week, Ut be held at Medford, to
arrange for a mass meeting of tax pay
ing citizens, at which some plan f action
with a view of ascertaining the exaet
status of the local debt, and how best to
meet and put an end to further accumu
lation of unwarranted debt will m
adopted. It is thought that the meeting
will decide to take the case to the United
States court for a decision a to the coii
stutioiiality of the present debt.

II waeo jieople are trying to raise a
15,000 sulsiidy. with $11,000 already
sulscribcd, for the building of a railroad
along North Beach. A proposition is to
build a narrow-gauge railroad from
IIwa-o westward across the neck of land
to North lleaeh. thence along the strip
which skirts the Is'ach to Ocean park;
thence in a northwesterly direction to
deep water on Shoal water bay, two miles
from Oysterville. Here it is intended
to put a sidcwheeler steamer to run up

Captain Charles J!i-ee. the present
asissor of the city of pt. YVavne, In-
was left for dead inx.n the field. The
captain recovered, bin surgeons always
feared to extract the bull. The bullet
worked downward, and frequently the
wound discharged through the nose.
One night recently Captain lb-ese awoke
with an uncomfortable feeling in Ins
throat and Iiegan coughing. He coughed
up the Gettysburg bullet of twenty-four
years ago. It was rough and irregular
and weighed 404 h grain. 'Ztjt grains
over an ounce. Captain IJocse has
drawn a large pension for his wound and
his face is badly disfigured.
At San Fraueisco la.-.t Friday, Judge
Toohcy quashed the indictments found
by the grand jury against Walter
XeustaJt, W. . IVlchcr and Pinion
Ilauiberg for swindling AUert Von
Boden out of $500 by conspiring with a
woman named Mary Ellis, and getting
him to pay $00 for a lot which she
did not owu. The'setting aside of the
indictments was ordered because the stat
ute of limitations prevails, the crime hav
ing lieen committed in May, 188(1. more
than one year ago. The charge was
merely a misdemeanor. These are the
same persons who swindled an Oregon
farmer out of nearly $11,000 recently.
Last Monday afternoon Mr. Molgan

J ustice Lamar is reported as tell
incr the iollowiuif story of bis
experience at a political meeting in
his own state soon after the war.
He was one of the speakers and
alluding to the civil war, suggested
as a parallel caae the parable of the
Prodigal Son and the joyful recep
tion at his home when the naughty
boy returned. He was succeeded
by a negro, a republican, who after
some general remarks paid his

Gladstone is a great linguist.
When James (1, Blaine was recently
presented to President Carnot. of
France, the services of an interpreter
were required to wake conversation
possible. Mr. Gladstone, however,
talked French glibly to an inter
viewer a few days ago, and respond
ed in Italian to a demonstration in
his honor at Florence. If he should
go to Athens, he would chat with
tbe natives in modern Greek. He
could address the students of a
German university in their mother
tongue, or read to them from the
Latin and Greek classics. Glad
stone's tongue is not alone eloquent
it is highly cultured.
N. V. Times: The American ben
has cause for grief aud shame. Tbe
pig, the sheep, the cow, the horse,
the field crops, and the forest
products are all "protected." Uut
eggs are on the free list, and the
hen is an unprotected female.
Nevertheless a hen has made a profit
for her owner of $7 in a year's
business, all unprotected ns it is,
which is more than a whole sheep is
worth, wool and carcass together,
and ns much as manv a cow makes
for her owner.
M. Pasteur apts-ars to Is iu a fair
way to earn the large reward offered by
the government of New South Wale
for a successful plan of exterminating the
rabbit which ure ravaging that rgiou.
He has destroyed a whole colony of rabbits
iu a locality in France by inoculating one
with chicken cholera microbes and turn
ing it loose among it fellows. The epi
demic raged and the work was com
plete. The only animals liable to injury
from this process are chickens, and they
can be kept out of the way. It is to be
learned yet whether the Australians will
try this heroic but acicntifie method.
It is no a very gl commentary upon
the theological profession when its
practice doe not keep pace with it
precept. This is illustrated in the case
of a .ersey City clergyman who recently
lost $300,000 by the failure of a New
York stock -broker. Hi had recently
preached an eloquent sermon upon the
'sin of gambling."
The navy of Great Ih itaiu and Ireland
consists of 240 vessels and 57.250 men;

of Germany, 91 vessels and 15,200 men;
of the United Slates, 93 vessel and

the manners of a middy, right away
after promotion, he wonders if there i
any one else in the service, and who was
the navy before his promotion?

The success of the anti-vacciua.
tionists is aptly shown by the results
in Zurich, Switzerland, where, for a
number of years, until 1883, a com
pulsory vaccination law obtained,
and small-pox was wholly prevented
not a single case occurred in 1882.
Tbe result was seized upon the fol
lowing year by the anti-vaccination-
ists, and used against the necessity
for any such law, and it seems they
had sufficient influence to cause its
repeal. Tbe death returns for that
year (1883) showed that for 1,000
deaths 2 were caused bj srnall-pex;
in 1884, there war 3; in 1885, 17;
and in tha first quarter of 168C, 85.

It is estimated (hat seven-tenths
of the men who run the various labor
unions are foreigners. They come
here with ideas of the old world, in
respect lo allowing boys to learn
trades. To protect themselves,
they deem it necessary to keep down
the number of apprentices, and
consequently to limit thereby tha
number of skilled laborers, and
therefore maintain for themselves
high wages and excluded privileges.
All of w hich is foreign to the policy
of tho American government, un
democratic, arbitrary, selfish and un
just. Give our American boys and
girls a chance in your shops. A
man 'living in Multnomah county
had been trying for five years to get
his boy iuto a machine shop; he is a
fine, bright, intelligent lad, now
verging iuto manhood, but ho failed;
not because tho company did not
want him, but because they have
already all the apprentices allowed
by the 1'ti ion of Mechanics, who
run the institution, instead of the
men who furnish the money, We
