WASHixrtTox, Jlatch 2. 1888.
Seuator lilair, of New Hampshire,
author of the educational bill, haft
just introduced another measure
over which the mere question of
reference caused quite a spirited
debate. It provide that iu ap
pointments to eivil service position
the wounded and disabled ex-en-fedtrate
Holdier.s ehali le given
preference overtdlu r eonfedeinteH.
Speeches were iua l- lv Senators
Piatt, Hale, lienv, Jtlair, Ibtar,
RidJleberger, Hatupton, (iuorge.
MamleiKon, D.ir.iel and Haw lev.
The Southern senators, while e
preesing the kind1iet fe lings for
the
enerosilv ami philanthropy i
which had prompted the introduc
tion of tlit bill, disclaimed all
.
sire on the part of the ex-eonfeder-
ates for tho passage of any such ex-1
; cei'tional iiie:i.tne, but thought that j

of one accord in condemning the j
measure as uuwie uud ill-considered.

Senator Hlair said lie had intro-'
duced his bill iu entire .1 f.iilh I
He understuod that iu the no state;
of Noilh Carolina, there wero !
diy4tl,(HM) rx-soldiers of the eon-,
federaey who hud lost limlis in the;
service, and that ino-d of them were
in poor ciicumstances. It seemed!
to him that if the overnment un-,

Dark t lime.
Some time in IKMj or tho Urst
part of Jkn7 a j.-ang "f Chinese went
into Wallowa county, Oregon, and
pitched their tent near tho west
bank d Snake river,' and began
mining along II. e banks r,f the liter.
It appear that flit mi men succeeded
in procuring c.iiideiable gold dust,
dining the time thev worked the
mines. They laid in u large quantity
of provisions to enable the miners to
carry ou the work during the m miner
of 187, About the 1st of July,
187, weveudc ipnalo character of
Wallowa county went to the ratup
armed with titles and revolvers,
where the Chinese were at work,
and ehot the last one dead; robbed
them of nil then coin and gold dust,
and thiew the bodies in the liver.
An eye witness to the murder aay
that the gang of Chinese consisted
of ten men, and nil were at work
when the murderers opened fire ou
them, and not one wa left to tell the
tale. The people of Wallowa aro
greutly agitated over the occurrence,
ami the officers will use every means
to bring the guilty parties to justice.
Soma of the murderers are supposed
to be out of the tate, and others are
thought to be in reach of the officers.
This same lawless band ha preyed
upon the people of Wallowa county
for some years, stealing horse and
cattle, and no one know really the
extent of ihe crime that have been
committed of late by this band of
desperadoes.
Hot Witter lor Plants.
It i a foi lunato circumstance that
a plant will endure a scalding heat
that is fatal to most of its minute
enemies. Water heated to the
boiling point, poured copiously over
tho stem of an enfeebled peach tree,
and allowed to ataud about its collar ,
will often have the happiest re
storative fleets. Trees "bowing
every symptom of tho yellows have
often been rendered luxuriantly
green and thrifty again, by thu
simple mean. The heat is pre
sumably too much for the fungus
which had infested the vital layers
of the tree, immediately under the
outer bulk.
Tli London florists recommend
not water, up to 11.J "leg, r ,, as a
remedy, when plants aro sicklr owing t
to the soil souring the acid absorbed
by the loots, acting ua a poison.
The usual resort is to the trouble,
some job of repotting. When this
is not necessary for any other reason,
it is much simpler to pour hot water
freely thiough the stirred soil; it
will presently come through tinged
with brown. After this thorough
washing, if tho plants are kept warm,
new root point" nnd new growth
will soon follow,
A Hdy friend had a fine calla in
a three-gallon pot, which showed
signs of ill-health. On examination
the outer portion of the Ailing wae
found mouldy, il being in larje part
fresh horse manure. As repotting
was inconvenient, tho plant being in
flower, hot water was freely used; tt
killed the mould, and the plant
began to revive nnd was soon all
right. -- ten s Magazine.
