Acookdixh io a Washington die
patch Democrats of Oregon repre
sent to the President that they caD
carry the next legislature, and thus
seen re a senator to fill out the term
no? vacant, because of the neglect
to choose a successor to Slater, if the
administration trill oust federal offi
cials who make up of their places for
political ends. It has been submit
ted to the president that seven fed
eral officials of Portland dominate
the Republican politics of that
state; that they control the ma
chine, and are now laboring
in behalf of 'the Eepubl'can par
ty. It is charged that the arbitrary
rule of this clique of officials really
caused the the breach in the Repub
lican party vbich prevented the elec
tion of a Fenator last winter. The
president has been advised also that
Portland federal officials arc now en
deavoring to persuade Governor
Moody to convene the legislature in
special session for the sole purpose
of another effort to force in the bolt
ers and elect a senator, but the gov
ernor refuses to i-suo a call, unless
an agreement is entered into before
hand that a senator shall be chosen.
Democrats contend that the re-
moval of objectionable federal office
holders will give them a fair chance
in the next election, and that with
Buch a chance they can carry ll.eles
islature. The president has request
ed that the charges against the offi
cials complained of be put in writing,
with details of iLeir interference in
elections, sut2 it is the purpose of
Democrats of Oregon to comply with
When science was in its iufaucv,
much of ita fact was mixed with non
sense, and sn of taj nonsense
shows a won Jeriul vitality. A case
in point is the republication of a non
sensical bit that was current at least
4.0 years ago. It is a recipe for cutting
glass with shears or scissors. The state
ment is that sheet glass can be cut with
the greatest ease with a pair of scissors
if thcglas is kept under water and
kept in a level position. That there
is not a word mot truth in it any one
may easily prove on a trial, with the
result of dulling a pair of shears.
There is one cutting process that can
be dona better under water; that is
the paring of onions. When pared
under wafer the acrid emanations, so
uup'e sant to the mucous membrane
of eyes and nose, are dissolved when
held under water. But neither the
qi & iiy of gla-js nor the power of
scissors is clune J by i-n.nersion In
Chables Mitchelij, who died in
Bjstou la'e.y, s said to have been
the first packer of canned goods in
the United Stales. He was born in
Abjrdem, Scotlaud, in 1810. In
early life he learned the trade of tin
smith in Aberdeen, and became fore
man of a canning establishment, a
business then in its infancy. In
May, 1811, Mr. Mitchell came to Hal
.ifax, N. S., to superintend a canning
and preserving establishment The
next year he removed to Eastport,
Me., where he connected himself with
a house engaged in tho canning busi
ness. Subsequently be removed to
Boston where be continued in the
eame business until his decease.

and tho whole English world is aroused
to the necessity of immediate action.
General Kouiaroff, in his official state
intnt, reports that in consequence of
provocative and manifestly hostile pro
ceedings on tho part of the Afghans, ho
was compelled to attack them on tue 3uth
of Mnrob on both sides of the Kushli
river. The result was tho defeat of tne
Afghans with tho loss of 500 men, all
ineir artillery, two siauunrub nuu iiieir
entire camp and previsions. General
KomarofT also reports thut somt
