THE ASTORIA LAND GRANT.
Senatorial Discussion Cencemlsa: It For
In tho senate on the 11th considers
tion of the Oregon Central land for
feiture bill wa. resumed.
An amendment of JDolph'a vas
agreed to, providing that' all settlers
in gooi faith on lands forfeited, who
are otherwise qualified, -ohall "too en
titled to preference in the right to en
ter lands in ..'accordance with the
homestead or pre-emption laws, and
shall be regarded as hnving legally
settled each lands from the date of
settlement; and in case such settler
be not so entitled under the existing
laws, ho should be permitted, within
a yeur, to purchase not to exceed 160
acres at SL25; and reducing to SL25
the price of eyen numbered sections
along the line of the uncompleted por
tion of the road.
An amendment offered by Plumb
was agreed to a vote of 33 to 11, re
pealing the act of March 3, 1875,which
allowed settlers of railroad lands sub
sequently forfeited to locate an
amount equal to the original entry,
without additional cost.
Sherman, in some remarks favoring
this, said the land was open to home
stead entry, which was "enough. It
would not do to permit speculators to
get a hold on these lands and hold
them from settlement He (Sherman)
would favor in the bill -the repeal of
the pre-emption law. They had long
outlived their usefulness.
Morgan inquired of Dolph whether
there were any other parties affected
by forfeiture than the United States
government and the railroad com
pany. Slater did not think there were. He
believed there had been no effort made
by the company to sell lands.
Dolph believed there was a mort
gage, and perhaps a deed of trust,
which embraced in their description 8
all the lands of the company, --both
earned and unearned, but supposed
that the grantee of the land grant,
made upon "conditions subsequent,"
could only take -or mortgage such
rights as existed, and if the conditions
had not been performed there conld
haveexibted no-right which a mort
gage could take. There were no
questions involved, Dolph said, that
would not be fairly and equitably
settled by the provisions of the bill.
Morgan had understood, in the
sommittee, that there were no mort
gages or incumbrance, or that any
body's rights were affected, except
tnose of the company and tne gov-
should be looked into,' and the rights
of all parties affected ascertained.
It might be that the mortgagee's
rights covered a right to take lands
and build the uncompleted portion of
the road. He moved to recommit
the bill to the co'mmif tee on public
lands, for further consideration.
Blair supported the motion.
Though a member of the committee,
be did not know until tuis morning
that a mortgage existed on the lands.
Dolph said he had made, in the
committee, the statement just made
Morgan remarked that he bad not
heard it, and inquired ot Slater when
he (alatcr) had first heard it.
Slater replied that he was not sure
of having heard it before this morn
ing, but thought the bill proteoted
the .rights of all, as it stood.
Van Wyck said that dayaf ter day.
until midnight, the attorneys of these
railroad companies appeared before
the committees and made every con
ceivable objection to these forfei
tures. Everybody knew that every
land grant railroad company had
put a mortgage on its entire grant,
and it could have been safely as
sumed from the beginning, that this
company had followed that course.
Tf Morgan's position 'Was correct.
Van "Wyck figured that not only
would every mortgagee have to be
heard, but every judgment -oreditor,
Morgan thought the bill should pro
vide a complete method of settling
before the courts of all questions of
rights thafmay be involved, as has
been done uith the Atlantic and Pa
cifio forfeiture bill. He insisted on
his motion for recommital. He ex
pected to vote for forfeiture, as he
had voted for the Atlantic and Paci
fio forfeiture, and he expected to vote
for the Texas and Pacific forfeiture,
but ho wanted to see carefully pro
vided -for the rights of mortgagees,
settlers and innocent people who
bought the bonds of land-grant roads.
After" a further debate the bill, at 2
o'clock, had to yield to the unnfiished
business of yesterday, being the bill
providing for the admission of Da
Somebody has set his wits at work
to devise a new name for incendiar
ism, or arson, when committed by
people rich enough to hire lawyers to
defend them. It is called pyromania
a mania for setting things on fire.
Just as a poor ragged devil full of
liquor is called a drunkard, while r
man who can employ a doctor in
stead of a policeman to take care of
him is called a dipsomaniac, and a
poor girl who steals is a thief, but a
richer one a kleptomaniac; so now we
shall have incendiaries and "pyro
maniaos." But will it cat down the
annual destruction of 1 100,000,000?

BAYARD AND THE CABINET. '
Asoecial from "Washington -savs-
"When Bayard came .into the senate.
cnamDcr wis jnorznng ae was imme
diately surrounded by hi Democratic
coUeajues, all ot whom were eagefto
learn the resultrof his visit to Albany
on Sunday last The intimate per
sonal and political friends of .the
Delaware senator believe that. lie
went to Albany in pursuance of a re
quest from Cleveland. In connection
with his visit there is a report cojn
ing from Now York to the effect "that
Cleveland will not select Baardfor
a cabinet position because Til den ia
bit erly hostile tj hirr. It is claimad
by Tildpn's friends mat he uud they
nominated and elected Cleveland
and that he cannot go back on them
or disregard Tilden's wishes. On the
other hand it is asserted by Demo
crats high iu the party that Cleve
land owes Tilden nothing. It is
stated by men who were in New
York during the canvass and who
are familiar with theDemocfatio
management that Tilden gave only a
few thousand dollars and really
made no sort of effort in behalf, of
the ticket The alsoofit universal
opinion of the Democratic side ot the
senate is that Mr. Bayard can have
the secretaryship of state if he wants
it. The cause of Tilden's hostility
to Bayard is said to be the former's
belief that the Delaware senator and
Thurman -wore mainly responsible
for the electoral commission bill In
answer to this the friends of Mr. Bay
ard say that he and Thurman used
every oxertion to get an expression
of opinion from xuden about the
electoral bill, and that finally the
late C. N. Potter and several others
who were said to represent Tilden
aecepted the electoral commission.
Some new facts relating to the .Elec
toral commission bill were related to
the Daily News correspondent to
day by a friend of Mr Bayard, who
says that such leading .Democrats as
Bayard and Thurman agreed to the
out oniy alter ueverai propositions
had been made to Tilden and reject
ed. As the story goy a caucus of
prominent Democrats? was held at
Bayard's house earlyin the winter of
1876 to devise somesen- for seat
ing Tilden. After, af ooaclasion- had
been reached Beveely Taeker or. Vir
ginia was sent for and Bayard said:
Go down to Naif- York and see
Mr. Tilden. Tell him that we (mean
ing his associates in the matter) have
decided that he is t elected .and that
we propose seatim.luat ""if blood
must bo. shed tcrdrt &' Shomld he
immediately with his messago, but
he returned next day and reported as
follews: "I told Mr. Tilden you had
laid down a proposition that he was
elected and would be seated even
though the shedding of blood were
necessary, but Sammy started baok
and motioning mo off with both
hand", exclaimed timidly: 'No, no;
no blood r I then spoke ot an electo
ral commission. He would not con
sent to this. Then said I: 'You
must submit to being cheated out of
your rights, for the gentlemen whom
I represent have, no further sugges
tions to make.' I then took my de
parture.1' At the conclusion of Mr.
Tucker's remarks Thurmnn is report
ed as saying: "Mr. Tilden is too
cowardly to defend his rights, and
we must therefore do what, in my
judgment is the next be3t thing we
must agree to the formation of a
What followed is a matter of his
tory. -An Inter-Ocean New York speoial
saVs: A man very close to the Payne
McLean faction said here to-night:
"To t ilden the president-elect is in
debted for both his nomination and
election. It was Tilden whose namo
was kept before the country as a can
didate, beniod whom the Cleveland
forces were formed; ir was the old
Tilden crowd who fo ah. ClevJ n 's
nomination through; Xb was filden's
counsel that was sought on all doubt-
rai questions or campaign policy; is
was Tilden's money that was poured
it with Standard Oil gold to render
the committee free from embarrass
ment Now Tilden hates Bayard with
an intensity born of disappointment.
He has always believed that Bayard
and Thurman permitted him to be
counted out in the eleotoral commis
sion matter. He knifed them both in
th conventions of 1833 and ISSi. He
will be no more forgiving now and
will keep them both out of the cabi
net" All There Is la It.
Dyspepsia simply means difficulty
of digestion. That difficulty makes
a great deal of trouble and causes
jnuoh of the world's misery. Difficul
ty ia turnea into ease, and misery -into
comfort, by the use of Brown's
Iron Bitters, the world's great tonic.
This being the case, the dyspeptic in
valid' best plan is to .get Brown's
Iron Bitte'ra, just as did Mr. B: H. Oy

Brown's Iron Bitters for dyspepsia,
