THE OREGON SCOUT.
JONES & CHANCKY, Piibllaliei

Will Tliere be a Tie in tlie Upper Homo of
"Washington upcclnl: TJio Star this eve
ning figures outnprobablo tio in the senate
after the 31 of next Mnrcli. It soys tlmt
on Mnrch 3 tlio terms of sixteen republican
and nlno democratic soiators will explro.
Oftho sixteen repnblicniiB who will rctiro
twelvo will certainly bo succeeded by men
ol tlio anino party. Messrs. Slierman, Al
dricb and Edmunds lmvo been re-elected
iind tho legislatures of Connecticut, Mulnc,
Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Ne
braska, New Yolk, Pennsyl vnnla find Wis
ronsin nro republicans. Tlio democrnts
lose ono of tlio nlno wlioso terms expire Fair
of Nevada nnd nro securo of tlio remain
der, so that if tlie lop.lsln.tii res of CaUornia,
I ml ana and Now Jersey provo to bo demo
cratic tlio result of tlio change in tlio sunnto
niter March li will bo a not loss of tlireo to
the republicans, a democrat having hocn
chosen to succocd Mnhono from Vir
ginia. The present senalo stands forty
four republicans, thirty-four demo
crats and "IlondjUBtcr" Kiddle
fiercer, but Senntor Vim Wyck comes
back from Nobruskii as a people's re pro
tentative, lie iiiado his fight buloro the
wholo pooplo and won on tho Imhiio of oppo
sitinn to corporations. During his present
term lio has not hesitated on occasions to
antagonizo his party, and undor the condi
tions of his re-elect ion ho may bo more in
dcpor.dout still, heaving Van Wyck and
Itiddlehorgcr out of tlio count tlio next sen
nto will stand, provided tho democrats, so
cure tho tin on doulitful states mentioned,
thirty-seven republicans, thirty-seven dem
oerats. TIiiih .Messrs. Van Wyck and Kid
illeborger would hold tho buhiiiro of power.
In connection with this probable situation
it is a fact worth iiieiitiouingthat both Van
Wyck and Hlddleberger have given ovi
donco of a kindly fooling for tlio administra
tion. In tho event ol any conllict between
tho executive and the senate the two voles
from Nobrlisku and Virginia would deter
mlno tho issue. Van Wyck and Itiddlo
bergcr would have it in their power, by co
operation with tlio democrats, to orgituir-o
tlm s'Miulo; or should Van Wyck vote with
tho republicans and Itiddleborger wit li tlio
democrats on the question of organization,
them would be a tie, and thoicis 110 vice
president to throw tho deciding vote.

tho liveliest sensation, and although tho
Inspectors refused to dlvulgo the naluro of

were easily obtained from a reliablo sourco

things tho doctor is accused of is using his
position to Hocuro tho roleaso of convicts.
During tho last six months a number of
convicts havo been pardoned out on tho

largo that it created comment, yot all may

several singular escapes from prison. Con

A DASTARDLY OUTRAGE.
Tho nows reaches us of nn outrage perpe
trated on tho person of T. D. Cobbey, at
Wyinore, IobI night, which throw the penco
ful and law-abiding citizens of Wymorointo
a state of conimo'ion and indignation
against Mr. Cobbey's ansnilant. Soinotlmo
between the hours of two and three o'clock
this morning, Mr. Cobbey was aroused
from his sleep by a knock at his door. He
nroso and reaching tlio door, a volco from
without informed him that ho had been
sent from Dcatrico with a buiidlo which ho
was reepjested to dollvcr to Mr. Cobbey.
Suspecting nothing. Mr. Cobbey answered
the summons by opening the door, but in
stead of recoiving a bundlo, he henrd a
"sisli," ns of rushing wntcr, and tho next
moment was awaro that ho was the victim
ol a foul conspiracy, and trickling flown the
tho right sido of his head back of his ear,
coursed tho vilo stuff with which tho assail
ant had hoped ho would bo disfigured for
life. It so happened that tho position in
which Mr. Cobbey was standing at tho mo
ment allowed tho top of his head instead of
ids facetoroceivethecontents of thesyringo
or whatever was used to throw it at h 111.
As soon as possible niter tho onslaught
the door was closed and Mrs. Cobby an
swered her husband's call. Prompt action
in tlie way of supplying oils to counteract
thoacid rendered Mr. Cobbey comparatively
freo from pnin and saved liim from a fear
Tlio liquid used was a powerful acid ol
somo kind perhaps a vltrol. Thoie was a
great amount of It and wns sent with such
torco that the wall on thu opposite sido of
tho room was sputtered, wlillo the carpet
the In; I length of tho room was dotted
over. So powerful was tho acid that tlio
paint and varnish on tlio door where tiie
stuff struck it, iias all como off.
". Cobliey wns not able to pursue his
-.rsailant and as ho had no chance to li t a
view of him, there Is very little prospect of
being alilo to apprehend the villain.
No explanation can be given for tlie
assault. Mr. Cobbey hnd not boon warned
ami know of no enemies that would resort
to such low-down work to wreak vengeance
Tlio person that will do such a thing is
tho meanest of tho mean. To assault a
man in tlio dnrk is tlio basest kind ol
treachery and tliero is scarcely a known
punishment lit "for tlio crime, and it js to
lie hoped a speedy bringing of tlio culprit to
justice will bo accomplished. lleatrico

Boston special: This is tho cloning and
the greatest day ot the Harvard celebra
tion, and groat and distinguished men from
far and near, who owe more or less of their
uccess in life to tho instructions they re
ceive in tho world-famed college, nro gather
ing at Cambridge to do honor to the occa
sion. President Cleveland arrived hero
shortly before 8 o'clock, and was welcomed
by the governor nnd a throng of specta
tors. In Sanders' theatre, where the liter
ary exorcises wcro to tako place, every foot
of space was speedily occupied, and thous
ands wcro unable to obtain admission.
After tlio address ot Dr. Lowell find the
reading of Dr. Holmes' poem, which was
greatly applauded, tho chorus sang a selec
tion. Honorary degrees were then con
ferred upon alargo number ol distinguished
persons. During the exercises President
Cleveland roso and bowed acknowledgment
at every reference to his name. After tlie
exercises tlie company repaired to C.10 ban
quet hall, where thu viands were amply dis
cussed. An hour was passed in speech
making. Judge Charles Devcns first deliv
ered unnddress of introduction, after which
President Elliott responded to the toast,
"Tho Univrsily." Governor Hobinson
tlionnpoket.i' ThoCommoiiwealtli." Pres
ident Cleveland was then introduced and
received with great applause, lie said:
"Mr. President and Gentlemen I find
myself to-day in a company to which I am
much unused, mid when I sen tliealiimni of
tho oldest college in tho land surrounding

tho reduction that for me tln-ie exists no
nl itui mater gives rise to a feeling of regret,
which is kindly tempered, only, by tlie cor
diality of vour welcome, and your reassur
ing kindness. If tlio fact is recalled that
only twelve of my twonty-oue predecessors
in odlco hiul the advantage of a collegiate
or university education, proof is picsented
of tho democratic sense ot our people,
rather than an argument against the hii
promo value of tho best and most liberal
education in high positions. Tliero cer
tainly can bo no sulllcient reason for any
space or distance between the walks of the
most classical education and tho way that
leads to political place. Auv disinclina
tion on tho part ol the most learned nnd
cuitiired of our citizens to ininglo in public
affairs, ami consequent abandomeiit ol
political activity to those who have
but littlo regard for tho student
nnd scholar in politics, aro not favor
able conditions in 11 government such
ns ours, ami if they havo existed to a dam
aging extent very recent events appear to
indicate that tlie education and conserv
atism of the land aro to bo hereafter more
plniniy hoard in the expression of tlie pop
ular will. Surely tho splendid destiny
which awaits a. patriotic effort in behalf ol
our country will ho sooner reached if the
linuf. nf mil- llilnlcnru ntwl educated men
shall doom it a solouin duty of citizenship
to actively and practically engage 111 politi

that is afforded our citizens of tlio acts and

lator and check upon temptation and press
in olllce, and is a constant reminder that
diligence and faithfulness aro tho monsiiro

THE TREASURY DEPAR TM EST.
So Change in it Attitude Heeause of tlie At
torney (lenerars Opinion.
Washington dispatch: It is stated on
authority that the opinion given by the at
torney general, as to tho unavailability of
called It jier cents ns a basis ol national
bank circulation, will niako 110 change in
tlie attitude of tlie treasury department,
because this opinion only continued tlio
rule heretofore followed. The bankB have
shown considerable diligence 111 acting under
this rule, and in consequence ot it they
have withdrawn from depostnnd presented
for redemption nearly ? 10,000,000 of :i
per cent bonds since tlie 1 2th of August,
the date (d tlio first SI 0,000, 000 call, and
at the same rate hereafter it is exjiocted
that withdrawals will keep pace very fairly
with future calls. Against the 40,000,000
II per cents withdrawn tliero have been only
about 58,000,000 of other bonds depos
ited, so that tlio total bonds on deposit to
secure national bank circulation have been
reduced by about SJU, 000,000, which con
tracts tho circiilition by about 528,000,
000. If those proportions nro preserved
throughout the changes resulting from fu
ture calls of .'1 per cent bonds, there
may bo a further contraction of about
S.'tS.OOO.OOO by the time all these bonds
aro withdrawn.' It is said at tlio treasury
that this contraction 111 tlio volume ol tho

the total amount of .'t per cent bonds hold

test tlio constitutionality of tlio JMmiindB
anti-jiolygamy law. Snow, one of theMor

and sentenced tlireo times. Ho has served

Snow cannot ho twice tried under tho cou
