News of tlie Wtek From Our Ef ular Cor
rcBtfoudaat at tHo Capital.
Proiilont Karrisoti's annual tnes-s.t-i-
to congress if, iu spite of its
length, :i well written nnil intorestiug
docunient, anil no man interested in
national nfl'ain? can nflbrd to skip a
single paragraph therein. There is, of
course, the usual dinbrence of opinion
as to those portions of tho message
treating of the subjects which arc in
dispute between the political parties.
That portion of the message dealing
with foreign aflairs, which may be
supplemented soon by a special mes
sage on Chilian aHairs, is generally
commended by congressmen of all
parties for its dignified language and
conservative stand. The message rec
ommends the passage of a bill lending
the government endorsement to the
bonds of the Nicaragua, canal com
pany, ami expresses the opinion that
tho canal is of sufficient importance
to justify tho dnoct appropriation by
congress of money suflicient to build
it, if it can be built in no othor way.
This recommendation has opponents
in all parties, particularly in the house
of repieseutalives, and it is extremely
doubtful whether such a bill can be
passed. It, reiterates tho statement in
the last message against Tfcc coinago
at this time, and asks that the present
silver law be let alone. This is also u
suggestion that will bo warmly op
posed in both house and senate, by
some of all parties. It repeats for the
third time Mr. Harrison's recommen
dations for the protection of railroad
employes, and presents a startling
array of statistics showing tho neces
sity for such a law. That is a recom
mendation which should bo acted
upon, nnd it will bo if the Labor
organizations will bring a littlo pres
sure to bear upon congressmen. It
recommends tho adoption of a consti
tutional amendment for a uniform
system for tho election of congressmen-and
members of electoral college,
and tho appointment by tho supremo
court of a non-partisan commission to
impure into and recommend a remedy
for the evils of our present election
Young Sherman Hoar, who is a
democratic member of the houso as
well as a nephew of Senator Hoar,
who is about as radical a republican as
could be found, is said to have cried
like a child when Mills was defeated.
If he remains in political life long, ho
will get bravely over Unit sort of thing.
Representative Jerry Simpson drew
a first-class nrizo iu the lottery for
choice of seats, and selected a sent in
tho front row, where ho cannot fail to
attract tho speaker's attention every
tinio ho says "Mr. speaker," and un
less ho changes his mind, ho will say
it very often during tho session.
No business of any importance
except organizing is over dono during
the first week of a now congress, ami
this congress is no innovation iu that
respect; the houso adjourned from
Wednesday to Saturday, when it will
adioum to next Wednesday: and
owing to the nearness of tho Christ
mas holiday season and tho doubt
about whether Speaker Crisp will get
the chairmanships of committees an
nouueed before the recess, it is safe to
assume that tho torious work of the
bt'suion will not begin until January.

Mr. Maine's intoulion to write a letter
formally announcing that he will not
be a candidate, and declaring in favor
of Mr. Harrison. It may be true, but
it cannot bo vouched for by your cor
respondent, becauso ho has been un
able to find anyone authorized by Mr.
Maine to make such a statement.
Tho election of Speaker Orisp,
whether justly or not, is generally
regarded here as a black eye for the
piesidential aspiration of Mr. Cleve
land. The democratic members of
the houso made Mr. Cleveland's nom
ination the principal issue of tho
speakership campaign, with Mr. Mills
as the Cleveland candidate.
Speaker Crisp refused, after his
nomination by the caucus and previ
ous to Ins lonmil election hv the
homo, to ptoiniso that he would so
make up tho committee on coinage,
weights and measures, as to ensure
tho"smo4tierTng of the free coinage
legislation. This may mean much, or.
it may mean nothing. J. II. C.

Tlie Union County Farmers' Alli
ance ami iniiustrial union met at
Union Dec. tho Kith inst. in regular
monthly assemblage. A two day's
session was liciu ami mucii business
of importance to the alliance of this
county was transacted. Much en
thusiasm prevails throughout the
county yet, reports to tho contrary
notwithstanding. There aro sixteen
local ledges in tho county, with a
membership reaching into the neigh
borhood of one thousand. A fair at
tendance was present and tho annual
election took place, resulting as

Tlie next meeting will occur at Un

All members not delegates are re

A matter of importanco was brought
beforo tho last assemblage, but in jus
tice to the lodges not represented, was
doferred until tho January, meeting
Particulars later. Como everyone; it
is necessary that every lodge in tho
county bo represented. A two day's
session was decided upon iu order -to

As the writer was returning from
church, a weary prodigal, one evening
last week his attention was attracted
to some mysterious being which at
first ho took to bo a ghost, but not
being a firm beliover in ghosts, ho
drew his six shooter, presented arms,
aroused courage and proceeded to
investigate tho Btrango, mysterious
being. At a first glanco ho thought it
was an inhabitant of somo strango and
unknown planot, who had had a batl
caso of somnambulism and getting too
near tho planot's edgo had dropped off
and lit in this strango, wicked world ;
but great was our surprise when on
closer investigation wo found tho mys
terious being to bo ono of our young
farmers, who wag quoting from Shako
spcaro as follows :
"Fair Ik my love, but not no lair an llckle;
Mild uh ii dure, but neither truo uor trinity ;
JlrlKhtor titan kIuom. uutl yet, iih glass in, brittle.
With a goodly amount of threats
mixed witu high-flavored persuasion
the writer succeeded in Ketting the
young man to alight from his porcli
on tho lence, where ho said ho had
intended to stand until ho became
completely potrificd, and then ho
would have his noblo form exhibited
a hundred years hence at the World'a
Columbian Exposition to bo held at
North Powder, as ono who hud died a
martyr at tho shrine of love. As ho
alighted from his porch on tho higea t
fence stake ho was heard to say: Qui

plainly that ho had once been a man of
