One Man Killed and Anoi her Wounded
Csehalis, Dec. 25. In a drunsen row
in a railroad camp above Pe Elt last
night, William Kelly, a foreman, was
shot and killed, and Dennis Collins,' a
laborer,serionsly wounded in the shoulder
by Andy Gurden. The three men and
another occupied a cabin ' together. . A
quarrel was started over a te.am Gorden
bad been ordered to care for earlier in
the day. Kelly applied "an offensive
epithet to Gordon, wno pulled a revolver
and shot him through tbe bead, killing
him instantly. Ho then fired six more
shots at tbe other two men, striking Col
-ins, in the. sbolder. The third man
escaped. . Gordon then walked to Will
apa and gave himself up. An hour later
25 railroad men entered town to lynch
Gordon, but . were driven back by tbe
offcers and citizens without' bloodshed.
Wben Gorden, saw them be threw., np
b s hands and said be was ready to go
so soon as be could write a message to
his mother.. Collins says tbe murder
was deliberate aud cold blooded. Kelly
is about 50 years old and a great fav
orite witb the men.' He bad been witb
Contractor Kelso for many years.
' BebriBK Sea Matters.
, Loudon, Dec. 25 In speaking of Cap
tain Levron's return from Behnng sea.
he St. Petersburg correspondent of the
Timet says that tbe repor ot this officer's
insanity is unfounded It is given out
in Levron's de'ense tbat the crews of tbe
British sealers seized under bis direction
were fairly treated on board bis vessel.
Alt tbe abuse complained - of is said to
have been- Irom tbe Russian officials at
Petropauiovsky. Tbe English case bas
been presented at the Russian foreign
office, and tbe probabilities are, says tbe
correspondent, tbat England will take
Amerxa's view of tbe matter, maintain
ing tbe Bebring sea in a mare clatuum, in
which case, matters may drag along tor
come time to come. Ia fact," continues
tbe correspondent, ''there is strong ground
to suspect a coIIubiou between Russia
and America in this affair. . Russia can't
and presumably doesn't intend to claim
exclusive rights in tbe waters where these
vessels were captured."
Killed With an Infernal Machine.
Dublin, Dec. ' 25 Tbe First reports
tbat tne explosion last night outside the
detective office was a political outrage is
deprecated by the police. Tbe general
opinion is that tbe infernal machine was
placed there by some one witb a personal
spite against tbe detective force. All
day, from all parts of tbe .city, people
bave gathered in crowds near the place.
The only person severely injured-was. a
detective, wbo died. Three men and a
woman, 100 yards off, sustained only a
few bruises. It is believed in some
quarters tbat the motive ot tbe crime was
tevenge for refusal of tbe government to
release tbe imprisoned dynamiter Daly.
No arrests bave been made, nor have any
clues been discovered. . .
. Blaine Is Feelinc Better.
Washington, Dec. 26 Blaine 'con
tinues to get along quite as well as ex'
pected. He passed a fairly good mgbt,
and this. morning is aa well as yesterday,
though tbe Christmas festivities resulted
yesterday in a litt e more exercise than
was good for him Tbe family are in
much better spirits now tbat Blaine baa
passed a whole week without a relapse.
The Work; of Anarchists.
London, Dec. 26 A suggestion is be.
ing made that the Dublin explosion was
the work of anarchists and part of a plot
discovered soae time ago to carry on a
dynamite progaganda in Great Britain in
behalf of tbe anarchist cause. Scotland
yard officials, however, scout the idea.
The explosion bas caused uneasiness here.
ai d public buildings, railway stations,
etc , have been put under extra guards
All the precautions taken during tbe last
dynamite outrages in this city are ob
served. No unknown person is allowed
to enter the government offices without
giving an account of himself.

dispatch was received here late last night
from Guerrero, in tbe state ot Tamauh-
pas. stating that the detachment of Mexi

A Sensible Wei
Mrs. Josebhine Shaw Lowell, widow
of Gen. Charles Lowell, killed at Cedar
Creek, and sister of Col. Robert G. Shaw,
killed at Fort Wagner, who bas bad a
large official experience in dealing witb
female criminals, declares tbat they is
no reason wny sucn women snouia De
viven any immunity from bard work or
She knows of no reason why 'criminal
and vicious women wbo bave fallen
under the penalty of the law should
not be made to work aa bard as thous
ands of poor women have to wbo bave
never broken tbe law. She declares
tbat she beheyed bard work cf a char
acter adapted to their strength was
good for tbem. She places every reliance
on gentleness and love, but she wants
strength . and authority behind tbem.
She sees very clearly tbat in nine cases
out of ten these women went - astray
because tbey were idle before tbey . were
vicious. She believes not only in giving
tbein something to do, but in developing
a love for it, or at least an interest in it.
And she does not believe in any orna
mental syjtem of . condonemenc wbicb
would bring tbe flattery and tbe falsehood
of conventional politeness into their lives.
Tbey ae to be made to feel tbat tbey
have no special sex privilege to violate
tbe laws of God or of society.
Mrs. Lowell bas no sympathy with
tbe "popularity of female eccentricity.
tbe immunity of woman's .revenge.
tbe- false sentiment tbat - attends ber
hysterical violation of social laws.'
It is Sot . Constrtnuoual.
Tbe supreme courts of the differtnt
states bave nearly in every instance de
oided against the constitutionality of tbe
gerrymander method of making political
capital, so generally followed by tbe
Democratic party. On the . 17tb tbe
supreme court of Indiana rendered its
decision, and the following is taken from
an eastern exchange: ' ..
"The gerrymanders are overthrown.
The decision of tbe supreme court of tbe
state in tbe case was banded down at 2
o'clock this afternoon. . It was written by
Judge Coffey, Judges McBnde and
Miller ' concurring, while. Judges Elliot
and Olds filed separate opinions concur
ring for tbe most part, but differing In
details. The decision declares the court
bas jurisdiction, and pronounces tbe acta
of 1891 and 1879 unconstitutional, and
holds tbe newly elected legislature to be
aa official body de facto and valid law
makers. The decision of the lower court,
which declared tbe acts of 1891 and 1S85
unconstitutional restonng that of 1879,
is reversed. Tbe effect of tbe opinion of
tbe majority of the court is to decide
that tbe courts have authority to adjudge
an apportionment act void if it violates
the provisions of tbe constitution. Tbe
judgment of tbe lower court is reversed
tor tbe reason that tbe act of 1879, being
unconstitutional, fowell, tbe elector, bad
no right in a writ of manda mustocom
pel its enforcement. Judge Elliott con
curs in tbe holding tbat tbe court has no
power at tbe suit of a nartv entitled to a
decision upon such a question to give
ludgment upon tbe constitutions ity of
tbe apportionment law, but be holds tbat
tbe relator Powell bas no right to ask for
a decision upon tbe validity of tbe acts
of 1885 and 1891, because be makes no
esse, for the reason that his complaint is
tounded upon a law which be himself
shows to lie utterly void.
"Tbe effect of the decision of tbe ma
jnrity of the conrt is to leave tbe state
without law under the provisions of
which an election of members of tbe
legislature could be held, for tbe decision
makes no reference to any act under
whiah an election may be cond acted
But this effect of the opinion of tbe ma
jority is modified to a. degree by the
Holding that there Is a de facto lecisia
ure, and tbat it can enact laws and
transact public business."
From Saturday's Dally.
For tbe past three days The Dalles bas
suffered tbe inconvenience of a snow-block
ade, and all intelligence from the interior
has been stopped. The snow began falling
Sunday ni(ht,and continued nntil Friday
morning, leaving a covering of about three
feet on tbe ground.
Tbe last train from Portland arrived
the city Thursday afternoon at half-past 4
o clock; but the west bound trams have ar
rived daily, although late.
Ihis morning there were passengers on
four trains from the east awaiting transpor
tation to Portland, and tbe office of the
Umatilla House presented a scene of on-
usual activity. There were . women and
children, old and young men, commercial
"drummers, lawyers, editors and mer
chants, civilians and soldiers all longing to
be at home to spend the holidays Some
had been here for the past three days, while
others had arrived the evening before. All
methods of amusement wera being . used;
and, considering the oircumatanoes.a happier
crowd of individuals could not be seen any
About 10 o'clock the rotary snow plow
started west with one locomotive attached,
and progress was made very slowly. Tbe
smoke of, the engine was watched as it
slowly made its way down the track. . The
anxiety of tbe people was evinced by a look
oat being kept at every vantage point to
note what progress had been made.
At 11 o'clock the passenger train started
west, and this was orowded to its utmost
capacity.- Persons wbo had been eagerly
waiting for . an opportunity, hurriedly
jumped on board as the train stopped in
front of the Umatilla House.' Passengers
bave been treated fairly by the company
and by our citizens, and anxiety to be at
home during tbe Christmas tide was the
reason of tbe desire to leave the city. .
As far as can be learned there are five
freight trains blockaded between Bridal
Veil and .Bonneville, three of which are off
the track. One of these is loaded witb coal
for this city, and another bas cattle for the
Portland market. V The rotary plow may
clear tbe track where ice bas not formed;
bat it cannot place on the rail the wrecked
locomotives. The gorge of the Columbia is
a very difficult plaoe for successful railroad
ing, and daring the winter season the diffi
culties are largely increased. There is no
possible way to guard against emergencies
that may be caused by snow and ioe, and
tbe Union racino bas to use tbe most stren
uous efforts every season to make comma
nication between The Dalles and Portland
possible. When snow falls heavily tbe un
dertaking is herculean in magnitude, and
tbe present winter bids fair to be one of the
severest in this regard ever experienced
the northwest. '
Murder at Leland. .
Lewiston was startled last Friday by re
ceiving the news that Jack Sutherland had
been murdered at Leland by a man by the
name of Roberta. The snooting was done
in Leland Thursday morning.. It appears
from tbe facts to be bad that Albert Rob
erts, the man who aid the shooting, had
been working for Jack Sutherland and his
brother during the past few months, and
that tbey had discharged him, accusing him
of stealing $20. There was about $5 doe
Roberts yet on contract and this was the
subject matter of the quarrel. Roberts
after being discharged went to Leland.
When Sutherland came to town last Thurs
day Roberts accosted him and demanded
payment. This was refused and hot words
followed and. Sutherland advanced to strike
Roberts, wbo warned him to keep off or he
would bnrt him.' Sutherland continued to
advance and the men grappled each other.
Roberta threw bis right arm about Suther
land's neck and drawing a revolver from, his
vest pocket shot Sutherland three times in
the abdomen. The wounded man struggled
a little, staggered off a few feet and dropped
dead. Roberts coolly loaded his pistol, lit
a cigar and walked away, lie was subse-
3uently arrested by Deputy Sheriff W. W.
obneon and brought to this city, where be
was lodged in tail. Tbe preliminary exam
ination was had Wednesday. Roberta claims
tbat he is a crippled man and that Suther
land knew this, and that he thinks' he is
justified in shooting him in self defense.
Only Crisp to Blame.
In a dispatch to tbe Inter Ocean dated
Burlington, Iowa, Dec. 17tb, a new phase
is given to the Crisp incident at the Re
form Banquet club in .New York city.
It is as follows:
T&t. W. W. Baldwin, of this city, re
turned yesterday from New Yoik, where
be attended tbe dinner given oj tne new
York Reform club, of wbieb be is a
member. Speaking of the slight to Mr.
Crisp, be said: "It is my opinion that if
auf one is to oe criticised it is mt. imsp
himself. There was no intention by the
club to invite biro to speak. He was
merely invited .to be a guest along with
a large number ot otber prominent Dem
ocrats whom tbe club invited solely be
came tbey were prominent Democrats.
Only the club's particular fnends were
asked to speak, men who bave stood
upon tbe dub's specific principles of
tariff and civil service reform. Tbe only
mistake was made by Mr. Crisp, in giv
ing out bis speech to the press before be
bad even been invited to deliver it."
