LAST HOURS OF
The Twentieth Biennial
SaLEM. Feb. 19. The legislature ad-
ourned sine die at 7 o'clock Saturday
evening, according to the record; really
It was nearly half an hour later when
final adjournment came. Both houses
had been dwaddllng through tbe after
noon, being in recess most or the time,
waiting for the enrollment and sign-
ing of bills. It was deemed safer to be
in recess than to preserve the form of
continuous session and give oppor
tunity for further liberality In making
donations to various, persons and
things that might be thought of by
the generous legislators. ,
Aside. from the formalities of finish'
ing up necessary matters in band, the
passage of the special appropriation
bill was the feature of the day. - The
house early in the morning, before ad
journing Friday's session, refused to
concur in the senate's reductions in
the bill, except in the case of tbe ap
propriation for the state school land
department, which had been put in
the general appropriation bill previ
ously passed and oonoeraing which
there was supposed to be no question.
Saturday mprnlng, however, it grew
obstreperous and refused to concur in
even those emendations, and the bill
was sent back to the senate, which re
fused to recede from its amendments,
and asked for' a conference. Tbe
house acceded to tbe request, and Sen
ators McKay and Reed and Represent
tatives Beach and Flagg were named
as tha conferees. It was noon before
they got at work, and 3 o'clock be
fore they were able to report to the
The second special appropriation
bill, containing the claim of John Hall
and a few others not deemed of suf

been cut down to $500.

Salem, Or., Feb. 19. Trials are to

fraud cases at last, the first one being
set for February 23, at 9 a. m., by judge
Burnett, in department No. 1 of the
circuit court. This action was taken
after demurrers to two of the indict
ments bad been overruled, and tbe
other indictment, that for forging an
election return from Butteville, at the
request of District Attorney Hayden,
bad been submitted to the grand jury,
the word "witnesses," which should

of names given at the end of the in
dictment, having been inadvertently
ommitted. Pleas of not guilty bave
been entered by all tbe defendants.
S. T. Richardson will probably be tbe
first defendant placed on trial. It has
been agreed, however, that if he is
not ready' for trial next Thursday
morning the case against W. J. D'Arcy
will be beard. As there are 21 cases
to try, separate trials having been de
manded, it will be some time before a
final settlement of all is reached.

an overwhelming majority of tbe news

Will be a Flyer.
The propeller Inland Flyer, of the
D. P. & A. N. Co. which was con
structed to make 20 miles an hour, but
failed to come up to expectations, is
to be generally overhauled at Supple's
yard on the east side in tbe hope that
she may yet fulfill what was expected
of her, says yesterday's Oregon lan.
Mr. Supple nays with certain changes
in her machinery he feels confident
that the Flyer will eaisly make 20
miles an hoar. Tbe hull was built on
tbe same lines as tbe torpedo-boats
with the exception of being made a
little wider in the center, to give her
steadiness. Tbe machinery is of
the marine make but no provision
was made for a condenser and
tbe boiler would not bold steam.
Even with these disadvantages, at
times the Flyer made 18 miles an hour.
She will be supplied with a condenser
and heater, and a solid propeller to
take the place of the sectional one
that is now in use. Witn these
changes the owners of the neat little
craft think she will easily maintain a
speed of 20 miles an hour. Her build
er claims that her performance with
defective power indicate that when
these defects have been remedied sbe
will come up to expectations.
