steward of the steamer Merwin, and who
is supposed to be the divorced wite of
Gaines Fisher, a liveryman of Salem, and
sister of Robert Ford, also a livervmaD in
the same city, committed suicide in the
Mechanics' lodging house in this city at
3 o'clock this morning. The case is a
remarkable one, as it brings out suspic
ions of several black crimes egain her
reputed husband. The woman first ar
rived at the lodging house about 8 o'clock
last evening, in company with Rothcn-
bentel, and engaged a room. The man
went out and soon returned with beer
Soon after this be left her. About 10
o'clock the woman wus beard to scream.
A few minutes later a noise waa heard in
ber room, as of a body falling heavily on
the floor. An attache of the bouse rushed
to her room and found her lying on the
floor. She picked her up and placed her
on the bed. About 2:30 oclockinthe
morning she was heard to scream again
and fall on the floor. Officer Phillips
proceeded to tbo room, and there a hor
rible sight met his gaze. The dead body
of the woman was found on the floor,
dressed only in a nightgown. Her head
was under the bed, and the attitude of
the body indicated that she bad struggled

IIinneopolib, Nov. 30. A fire wa
discovered on the third floor of the Tri
bune building abont 10. '45 to-night, and
soon tbe entire building was wrapped in
names. On tbe seventh floor were situ
ated many offices, tbe Tribune sta f, edi
tors, rtpoiters and compositors. A num
ber of employes, in attempting to es :apc.
jumped lrom tbe windows. A nun ber
of lives have been lost, acd at midn gbt
given bodies bad been taken out ot the
ruins. Only one is vet identiued. It is
tbat of Professor Olson, of tbe Yermilli n.
Dak., university, who had gone to se a
iriend. - He jumped from tbe top fla i
and was instantly killed.
A general alarm was turned in snd all
the engines in tbe city responded to tbe
call, ibe imprisoned printers gathered
tbe windows in tbe south end and
shrieked wildly, despairingly for aid.
urry the ladders, for God's sake," was
shrieked whh all tbe vehemence and
power tbat anguished dozens in peril of
tbeir lives could muster. A vast crowd
from the opposite side viewed .tbe fire
wreck its work, and shouted words of
encouragement to them in tbeir strenuous
endeavors to hurry them up. The long
hulders sesrued to move, at a snail's pace,
but were iicaily reeled in ponitijp, and
the crowd began. to r escend. Th3 flames
were ,Eakirg 5:et'.dy encroachments in
the comer where ti e men had huddled.
Life i:e!s were brought aud some we.e
saved by this means.
The entire building, at this writing,
less than an boar after the fire starte 1, is
a mass of ruins. Sparks are flying i i ali
directions and the adjoining buil.li igs.
occupied by a restaurant, saloon and
tailor store are doomed.
Tbe Tribune building was five yars
old, was a brick structure and was val
ued at $300,000, The loss will probably
reach a million dollars. The iuturance
has not been ascertained.
1 A. M. The number of lives lost is
over half a dozen and possibly ten or
more. Tbe building was an eight story
stone at the cciner of I'iist avenue and
Fourth streets. It was occupied by the
Tribune, TriLune-SUtr, (evening addition
of the Tribune), the Minneapolis office of
the Pioneer Frets and the Ecf.i.irig Jour
nal, besides a lare iurottrof otuer offi
ce3. The Tribune editorial force is ou the
seventh floor, and their composing rooms
are above it. On these two floors there
were nearly a hundred persons employed
when tiie fire broke out. Access to the
bniWing was by way of on elevator,
around which a narrsw end dark stairway
wound. At night thi3 stairway was the
only means of ingress or egre3. The
building might be cal.ed a veritable fire
trap, and the (krger to these lcca'.ed
there has been often commented upon.
The fire broke out on the third floor, and
soon the upper floors were cut olF from
the street. The building was on the cor
ner, and the adjoining buildings were
only one story iu lngbt, so no means of
escape was attorded in that direction.
The flame cut off the escape of tbe Pio
neer Preis1 force on tbe sixth floor, as well
as the Tribune folks on tbe seventh and
eighth. Reporter Barnes of the Pioneer
Frets, had a narrow escape lrom the
building, and left behind him Milton
Pickett, assistant city director and one
of the oldest men in the service ot the
paper. Pickett was lost in the burning
building. The Tribune force suffered
most, tbey being located higher up and
haviug less warning of their danger.
James r . lgoc, night operator of the
Associated tress, met with a sad death,
He was at work on tbe seventh floor when
the report of the fire was received, ana

8ENATOH squire's tlans.
Washington, Dec. 1, Senator Squire,
of Washington, has not given mu Ii at
tenlion to matters of legislation, but is
very much interested in commerce and
hopes in the reorganization of that com
miltce to be made a member of it. Ho
wants to extend the commerce of the
Pacific coast, and will join the senators
of Oregon and California in any scheme
that will result in establishing large com
mercial interests between the coast and
Asia. He favors liberal subsidies for
Pacific steamship lines as a means o
building up the Puget sound country and
the entire Pacific Northwest. He will
also work for Puget sound coast defenses
and navy yards. He will co-operate with
Representative Wilson in securing ap
propriations for public buildings at the
three leading cities of Washington. Like
all other Northwestern members, he his
made a study of and is deeply interested
in irrigation. Central Washington, he
claims, will be greatly benebted by
system of irrigation.

fifty-first congress on the senate sid.
Public cuiiosity seemed to be transfer! ed
to the bouse. Tbe interest 'on the floor
was devoled largely to the senators from
the new states. Ihey had seats assigned
them on the Republican side. Senator
Casey of North Dakota took a seat on tbe
end of the second row, agaiut-t the north
wall. Directly behind him sat the Wash
ington senators, Allen and Squire, while

and Nathan F. Dixon, of Rhode Island.
The credentials of Moody and Pcttl

t?quire of Washington were presented.
Piatt moved that the oath of office be
administered. Tbe motion was agreed to,
and ihe four new senators, each suoported
by a senator, proceeded to the 'clerk's
desk, and amid applause from tbe gal
leries took the oath of office.
Hour off red a resolution, which was
referred to tbe committee on privileges
and elections, tbat tbe three states that
elected senators will be considered as
having been admitted to the Union simul
taneously, and the order of precedence of
senatois determined by lot.
Hoar said it bid been the custom of
the sena'e to assign tbe new senators to
their lespective classis as soon as they
had taken oath.bul now for the first time
tbe senators from three states entered
substantially at tbe same time. His reso
lution, be said, proceeded on the theory
that the senators stood on an entire equal
ity with reference to their opportunity,
to be assigned to short or long term. The
fact that the proclamations evidencing
admission of the two Dakotas preceded
Washington by two days was due to tbe
greater distance the returns from the lat
ter state bad to come, and it gave tbe
Dakotas no just title to priority.

Death of 1'at O'AcnI.
On Thursday evening, March 10, 183-1.
a party of Yale college students visited
Iloman's atheneum, at the corner of
Chapel and Church steeets. While there
thev became involved in an altercation
with some men of the town. After the
Eertormance the students were assaulted
ya large number of tho town boys
and roughly handled. Tho following
evening, March 17, about fifty of the
students went to the same theatre in n
ooay. During the performance no diffi
culty occurred, but outside about 1,500
town boys had assembled. A note was
passed around among the students ac-
yuuiuiiu mum witn uie situation. A
falso alarm of fire was raised mitsirln
which served to augment the number of
the rioters. When tho performance was
over mesruacnts remained in the theatre.
iTesently they formed in line, two by

by tho students. VVithin two minutes
of tins time a cry arose that a man had
been shot. Maj. Bissell observed a man
near lum fall to the ground. Ho raised
the body from the ground with the as
sistance of the bystanders. Unon exam
ination at the police station, where it
was taken, the body proved to be that of
Patrick O'Neil. He had received two
stabs from a large dirk knife, and lived
but a few moments after the wounds had
been inflicted upon him. He was one of
the ringleaders of the moo upon both
inursaay ana rnaay evenings.
When the mob learned of Lis death it
became frenzied. About 500 or 600 men
rushed for the arsenal, broke into it and
dragged out two cannon. Thev loaded
these to the muzzle with nowder. stones
and uricKDats and dragged them to the
city green. Another portion of the
rioters broke into the churches and rang

a general alarm of fire, which broutrht
immense numbers of the people to the
scene, wmic at tne corner of Chapel
and Church streets Maj. Bissell mounted
an ordnance carriage and addressed the
mob, ordering it to disperse. The rioters
replied that they respected tho chief of
police, but must have blood for blood.
Maj. Bissell remained on the gun as the
mob dragged it toward the college. While
on the way up the street the rioters, in
their eagerness to, get tit their student
enemion. lailcd to keep a close watch
upon Maj. BisspH'a movements. Before

under tho leadership cf I.inj. Bissell,
without the crowd being aware of it
The police, during the transaction of
these events, had surrounded the
churches and prevented the furher ring
ing oi oeii3.
THE MAYOR RESTORES ORDER.
At 1:30 o'clock on Saturday morning
tho cannon wero brought into position
and trained to bear on South college,
where tho students had intrenched them
selves. When it was discovered that the
guns were useless an attack was made
upon the buuuing with paving 6tonc3
and brickbats, The structure was badly
damaged. Tho students lay low and
made no response. Cries of "Bring out
the murderer!" resounded in every direc
tion. At this juncture the mayor of the
city arrived and addressed the infuriated
crowd. He pleaded long and earnestly
for the cause of order, and promised that
the city authorities would immediately
take tho matter in hand and bring tho
perpetrator or perpetrators of tho crime
to justice. His words proved effective.
and the crowd began slowly and sullenly
to disperse. Uy f o clock Maj. Uiescil
wna able to convev tho cannon to tho
jail, and by 4 o'clock the city was quiet
A court of inquiry was held on March
20, 1854. No witness from the town was
called who was near enough to O'Neil
when he was stabbed to be able to testify
anything of value concerning the iden
tity of tho perpetrator of the act. i lie
jury finally came to tho conclusion, us
expressed in their verdict, tiiat "Patrick
O'Neil came to his death Friday evening,
the 17th of March, A. D. 1854, from
wounds received by him at tho hands of
some person or persons to us unknown
tho said Patrick O'Neil being at the time
engaged in, and leading, aiding and
abetting a riot."
Investigation was not pursued further,
inasmuch as O'Neil belonged to the low

Experiments with the Clearctte.
Science describes some experiments
made on the cigarette by Professor W.
L. Dudley, of Vanderbilt university, es
The fact that cigarette smoking pro
duces physiological effects differing in
some extent from those of the cigar led
him to make his experiments. 1 he fre
quently ascribed causes of the difference
mat or uie aauiterauon oi cigorer te w
bacco with opium and other drugs, and
also tho presence of arsenic in the paper
are for many reasons unsatisfactory
and insufficient It is true, no doubt,
that the tobacco tn many of the less ex
pensive brands isadulterated with cheap
drugs and artificial flavors, and that in
tho inoro expensive grades opium may be
used: but it is equally true that many
cigarettes are made of tobacco which is
free from sonhistication. The presence
cf arsenic in tho paper is entirely out of
the question, i nert is a dilierence in
the methods of smoking a cigarette and
a cigar or pipe.
In the two last mentioned the smoie
is simply drawn into the mouth and ex
pelled directly thereiroin or inrougn tne
nose, while tno experienced cigarette
smoker will inhale the smoke, that is,
draw it to a greater - or less extent into
the air passages, end in somo cases to
the greatest depth of the lungs, and thus
the absorption ofvthe carbonic oxide and
other gases will take place very rapidly,
causing more or less oeoxidation of the
blood, und thereby impairing its power
to build up the wasting tissues of the
body. 1. fliat carbonic oxide is the

A Sermon In Little.
We had been out walking in the cool
of the day, says a letter about Tolstoi,
and we had come upon a squad of 100
navvies who were employed at the rail
way. They were finishing their supper,
and were on tho point of turning into
their sod built huts, in which they slept,
ten on each side, on a rude plank plat
form, without mattresses, without even
straw. Count Tolstoi promised to send
them some straw, at which they seemed
very pleased. Honest, kindly looking
fellows they were; not so stalwart as our
navvies, but full of pleasant courtesy
and frank talk. The v&t to their huts
naturally led to a discussion upon the
social cucslion. "We "have . forgotten
Christ,' said the count; "we will not
obey him. And what is the result?
Tbere you hare 100 men, each earning
fifty copecks a day, without even straw
lo lie on at night How can you and I
sleep on mattresses and feather beds
when these hardworking men have not
even straw? If you were Cliristian you
cotaM not What right have you to too
much when your brother has not even,
enough? The next step in Christianity,
the very first step, is for those who havo
wealth and lands to part with all that
they have, and let it go to the poor."

Thrown for a few days in your beautiful
city, your will premit a atranger to convey
through tbe medium of your excellent pi
per a few impressions which your city and
its people made upon hi mind. There i
an air of solidity pervading your business
circles, your improvements, and in faot
everything in and around The Dalles.
Your growth seems to have been a steady
one, unaffected by booms of any kind. And
this is well. Still it seems to me that your
citizens owe it to thcmsclyes to spread in
legitimate, way the facts of your advantages,
prospects, etc., far and near, that others
may crowd hero, and givo you in a few
yoarsja population of 20,000. A stranger
would congratulate you on the handsome
opera house now buildiug aud nearing com
oietion, the enterprise of Mr Max Vogt.
It will be one of tbe best on the Pacific
coast, and one of which you may bo justly
proud. Your city seems to be composed of
order-loving citizens. ,

while the Sabbath school was in session.
This church building is a model of neatness
and convenience. The Sabbath school un
der the direction of that veteran Sabbath
school superintendent S. L. Brooks is a

Tbe music, under the leadership of Mr.
Jesse Crandall, was exceptionally fine. Tho
teaching in tbe classes was spirited and for
cible. Tbe order and discipline were most
excellent To see tbe pupils filing out after
the exercises in rank and atep to tbe musio
of a march played on both piano and organ
was a pleasing spectacle. The pastor of the
church, Rev. Curtis, who is evidently a
man of culture and refinement, by a little
attention and courtesies extremely grateful
to a stranger, made as feel very much at
