rjipor Hmi-e of Cmiinc
Joaquin Miller, in a recent letter,
"To put it in plain,Oregon English,
it is a big corral, nearly square, with
a fence about fifteen "feet high, and
would hold, probably, 200 lat and
f ullgrown steers.
"For the first few davs,' said the
Hon. J. TV. Nesmith of Oregon, "I
"wondered how in the world I ever
got hore. But after I began to get
acquainted I wondered still more how
the other fellows got here."
There are no posters on the fence
of the big corral, but there is a great
deal of old gold and gingerbread
work. On the top of the fence and
sloping back and upward, as in a the
atre, there are fire successive rows of
gray, hard seat, running eutireh
around in a squared circle. The cir
cle is cut in sections for ladies, gen
tlemen, senators' families, and so on.
There is one blight dash of sky blue.
This section is for the legations.
The section for the reporters is on
top of the fence just above the head
of the vice president The yard is
clean. The president of the senate
sits in an old-fashioned western pul
pit. Roosting around on the steps of
the pulpit are a dozen or two little
boys twisting themselves into all con
ceivable shapes. Fronting the great
pulpit and curving in graceful half
inoons before it are three rows of
desks. A few seats stand sentinel
further back; and there are some low
and tired-looking leathersofa hiding
here and thero in the corner. ThcFe
sofas aie not empty. I wonder if it
was the custom or the Komaii" to
twist their togas about their eais and
curl up on sofas with their sandals in
the air when they didn't want to
hear the opposition ?
THE UNITED STATES SEJ-.VTO T SES
SION. Sitting here iu the gidlery of tho
senate, and seeking to give an exact
five minutes' photograph in ink, I
counted seven lit tie boys on the steps
of the pulpit, trying with all their
might and main to tie themselves
into double bow knots. Tho enator
under me is also tr ing to pei Tomi
the same fearful fcrd with his legs.
A blonde man with a big head and
big fists is making a speech. He U
making it for constituents a thousand
miles awav. Two little boys start
swiftly over the noiseless floor. A
gray and comely old "man sleeps
peacefully on tho left ot tho pulpit. 1
The big fists swing iu the air. Four
more senators are melting away
through the fence of the corral. Tho
president of tho senate has ceased
smelling of tho flowers on the desk,
and is dreamily rubbing his nosi up
and down with his left forefinger.
Another senator goes out. A massive i
and broad-breasted member, with red
hair and lifted face, enters and loek: I
all about tho corral in tho most im- J
pressive manner. The handsome (
and impressive member finally sees
tho two huge fists swinging in the
air; he turns with a loss of the head
like a Texan steer and is gone.
Two more senators melted av. ay. Sure
enough the man with tho big fists
swinging in the air is talking for those
constituents a thousand miles away;
for no one near him is willing to hear.
Two moro senators knocked out!
There are not many moro senators
left, but of those remaining there is
an astonishing number of thorn fool

tho first to accord the respect which

receive. But tho simple truth is, with
a dozen exceptions or so, the senate
is sadly down at the heel.
The Ainuworth Robbery.
The suit of Nathan Bennett against
the Northern Pacific Express Com
pany wa3 on trial in tho slato circuit
court vesterday. This is the outcome
of the'robbery of 18,000, which took
place at Ainsworth last January.
Ladd & Tilton shipped tho money
from this city to Bennet. who is a
merchant at Ainsworth, and E. John
son, who is the agent of the company
-at that place, acknowledged receiving
4he money, but said that he placed it
in the office safe, and when bo went
to look for it the next day it had
in steriously disappeared. John
son was ariested for stealing the
S18.00.). but was discharged after
having an examination in justice's
conrtfn j Bennett who saw no other
way 01 getting even, entered sun
against the express company for the
monej. The point made by the ex
press" people is, that their agent,
Johnson, at the time he received the
package of coin, was virtually acting
as the agent of Nathan Bennett, and
that, therefore could not bo held re
sponsible for tho loss. This is strong
ly denied by Bennett's attorneys, who
claim iliac Johnson was both the
agent of the Northern Pacific railroad
and likewise tho Northern Pacific ex
press company, and that tho express
company are" in consequence liable
for the fos3 of the money. The case
has not vet been concluded. Stand
ard..' Forced to Disgorge.
Secretary Teller has just deeided a
land cae in dispute between tho
Northern Pacific Railway Company
and a settler, which all the interior
papers of the Pacific states and ter
ritories should publish for the benefit
of people in search of homes on the
public domain. Briefly stated, these
are the peints: At and before tho time
of the withdrawal of tho indemnity
lands granted to the above named
railway, A. B. had made a homestead
entry upon an odd numbered section
within tho grant. From some cause
no matter what A B. failed to per
fect title to his claim and it was aban
doned, but after such abandonment
it was entered and claimed by another
settler. rhom we shall name 0. D.
Meantime the grant had been mado
of all the odd numbered sections to
the railway, and the granted Innds
wero withdrawn before 0. D. entered
on this claim. Tho corporation laid
claim to tho land, setting up the gen
eral terms of tho grant of all the odd
sections not in tho lawful possession
of uny'settler at tho time of tho with
drawal of the granted sections.
Tho decision of tho secretary is in
favor of 0. D., the second settler, and
against tho railway, and it is doubt
less correct. It is founded on and in
aecoid with tho decision of the
United States supreme court in the
ease of Newhall vs. Sanger, in which
tho legal status of the somewhat no-
torious Mbquelnmncs grant, lying in
the counties of San Joaquin and Cal-
averas, in California, was settled.
Prior to and at tho time tho acts of
1862 and 164, granting lands to the j
Western (now the Central) Pacific rail
way, were passed, one Pico claimed
this land under a Mexican grant.
The claim was sot aside by tho feder
al courts, and after that settlers en
tered upon the land. The railway
company, or its assignees, urougnr
suit to eject the settlers and to pro-
tect their alleged title. The supreme
court held in tho Kewhall-Sanger
case that the railway did not and
could not tnko any part of the
land, or of any land upon
which there was a claim at
tho time ot the withdrawal, whether
such claim was legal or not All rail
way laud grants contain a proviso ex
empting Mich claims from tho grants
to the corporations and when tho
i courth upset the validity of tho claim
the land i everts to the public domain
and in no case can tho railway legally
