A Dark Chapter in History.
Ox May Gth, 1SS2, civilization
was shocked by the news that
Lord Frederick Cavendish, the
secretary for Ireland, and under
secretary Burke, wore brutally
murdered in Phoenix Park, Dub
lin. The detective machinery of
the English government was put
in motion, and after one of the
most complicated efforts in the
annals of criminal detection the
murderers were apprehended,
tried, and executed all but one,
Jas. Carey, who saved his life
by informing.- But he only post
poned his fate. A storm of exe
cration assailed him, his life was
thieatened, and ho appealed tcrthe
government for protection. He
was the principal villain, but the
English goverement having tac
itly agreed to take care of him,
tried its best to do so. Announce
ment was made that he was to be
sent to London, that his fare had
been paid to Canada, that he
would join his family in New
York, etc., but in the menu time,
with the utmost secrecy he had
been conveyed on board a vessel
bound for "the other side of the
world;1' far-ofi Africa. But pur
suit was kfion. Though the most
special and extensive measures had
been taken to preserve his life,
yet revenge fathomed all disguise.
1 . , t
arey was :i passenger on uie
KingfauHx Cattle for Capetown,
and on his arrival there was trans
ferred to the jlclrmc to ro to
Port Natal. While at Port Eliza
uetn last Sunday morning, :i
man named O'Donnell shot and
instantly killed Carey. O'Don
nell says his determination to kill
him was formed after the Melrose
left Cape town. Then Carey, by
his conduct indicated his identit'
and acted in such a manner as to
create in the prisoner an irresisti
ble impulse to kill him. O'Don
ncll points to the fact that Mrs.
O'Donnell accompanied him as a
proof that his journoy was not one
of conspiracy. The police claim
to have proof that O'Donnell drew
the. executioner's lot in Dublin.
Tiiat he was posted in London by
the invincibles under orders to
follow Mrs. Carey wherever she
went, until somewhere, with iier
children, she should meet the man
who, by her aud their conduct
would be indicated beyond all
doubt as Carey, and to kill that
man. the moment his Tdentity was
O'Donnell was placed in irons
by the ship's officers . immediately
after the shooting. There is some
doubt of the place of final trial.
The opinion is that as an offense
on the high sea, the prisoner will
be brought to England and tried
by an admiralty commission that
is, by ordinary judges, with, per
haps, the first lord of the admiralty
sitting on the bench.
He was aocompanied from Ire
land by his wife, who appeared to
be on intimate terms with Carey
continually during the voyage.
Third-class berths on the steamer
Kingfaun''& Castle were secured
June 30th at the Dublin office of
Donald Curric & Co., for Port
Elizabeth, for a Mr. Power and
his wife and seven children, which
it is well known was the exact
number of James Carey's family.
Jul 2d O'Donnell secured pas
sage for himself and wife on the
same steamer. Donald Curric &
Co. were not aware of the identity
The Times pronounces the
death of Carey a public misfor
tune and says he has been an in
strument of justice. His murder
is calculated to encourage the dar
ing and lawless to commit acts of
The Walla Walla Union in a
well written article shows that it
costs 32 cents a bushel to get
wheat from there to Portland.
With a system of transportation
in accordance with the natural law
of freights, the wheat could be put
at Astoria for less cost, and loaded
at Astoria in vessels at a lower
charter rate than can be obtained
when the vessel must go to Port
land. "Where Ischia smiles with
purple isles" etc., is now a scene
of horror. A second earthquake
last Wednesday completed the
work of devastation. The Italian
king has directed a contribution
of money and food to theuffering
Salmon in August.
What would be said of our
market men if .they were to
slaughter animals in the pangs of
parturition and offer their flesh for
sale in the shops. Yet "A. H.,:'
in the Oregonian, suggests extend
ing the salmon catch to the
fifteenth of August.
July 31st is as long as health
and decency will allow the p'ack
ing of salmon. After that the
fish are soft and flabby in meat
and pale in" color, unfit to pack
and will not make a pure article.
The reputation of Columbia river
salmon should not be injured by
putting into market "any sudli
stuff. For another reason August
fish should not be taken. They
being ready for spawning, no
doubt stop in the lower river,
perhaps on the shoals and sands
of the lower ColumbiatffS? They
should not then be taken, scata-ivd
or disturbed. Common considera
tion of the future would demand
such action. April fishing should
be strictly forbidden. There is
nothing in the fishing of that
month but the destruction of gear
and a few early fish and loss ol
Spring fish arc strong and furnish
ed lor a long run to the I toad -waters
of the streams. They
should be allowed to reach tlwrc.
With them in tho 'upper streums
and the August fish in tho lower
rivers some little offset would be
offered to the immense slaughter
of two million of grown salmon
during the 90 days of May, June
The Legislature of Washington
Territory meets this fall. It should
pass a law prohibiting April fish
ing, Oregon's Legislature meets
next year when it should pass a
similar one. Each should also ap
point a fish commissioner, whose
duty it would be to sec that the
laws concerning the fish interests
were enforced, and to collect facts
and report to the government de
partment upon the interests of the
The Last Spike.
A large party will leave New
York on the 29th, as guests of
Henry Villard, to witness the
opening of the road a few miles
west of the Mullan tunnel. The
party will stop a day each in St.
Paul and Minneapolis, reaching
Helena, Montana, September 7th.
The party will go to the junction
of the tracks in tho morning, and
William M. Evarts will make an
address, aud Yillard will drive the
last spike that will unite the two
divisions of the road. It is ex
pected that President Arthur will
be present, having by that time
finished his touc of the Yellow
stone park. All the ex-presidents
of the road will be present except
Josiah Penham, yho designed the
road and died in 1SGS before a
shovelful of dirt had been dug for
its construction. The other ex-
presidents are ex-Governor J.
Gregory Smith of Vermont, Gen
eral George W. Cass of New
York, C. H. Wright of Philadel
phia, and Fred Billings of New
York. A number of prominent
English and German miests. nub-
O j ,
lie men and journalists will arrive
on August 2Glh to join the party.
After the ceremonies some of the
party will return cast and the re
mainder will go over the 'whole of
the road to Portland, Puget Sound
and through the. Willamette val
ley, returning to New York on
.September 28th. The German
government will send some one of
its highest officials connected with
railways to attend the opening cer
emonies of the completion. It is
expected that President Van Lev
onthaw will attend. If hot he
will be represented by one of the
vice-presidents. The principal
German newspapers will have
special correspondents. "'Some ol
the delegations will sail on the
steamer Elbe on the 15th. It is
authoritively stated that the en
tire expenses of German guests,
from the time of their departure
to their return, arc to be defrayed
by the Northern Pacific.
A London- dispatch says that
as Carey was shot at 4 o'clock on
Stindzt' afternoon, and the steam
er Melrose, on which the shooting
occurred, arrived at Port Eliza
beth at 2 o'clock on Monday after
noon, the facts seem to show that
O'Donnell was outside the Coloni
al jurisdiction when he committed
the crime, and must, therefore,' be
tried in England. '-'. ;
At Providence, R. I., the na- j
tional civil service reform associa- j
tion met last Wednesday, In his!
annual address, Geo. William!
Curtis, the president, in allusion j
to President Arthur, said that the
president's steady refusal to satis
fy the faction of his party which
demands that public patronage
shall be prostituted to factional!
interest is most honorable to the
chief magistrate, and whatever
exception may be justly taken to
the many acts of the administra
tion in legard to the appointments
and removal, it will not be de
nied by fair man of every party
that the president, ?hoe acces
sion by means of a mot tragical
event was generally regarded as a
misfortune and calamity, has not
only allayed all apprehension of a
gross misuse of the tro!ixge of
the government, but by hit, pa
tient and temperate administra
tion he has gained the general ap
proval of the countrv.
