It is expected that a conference
of leaders in the Democratic party
will be held in Washington soon,
when an effort will be made to
harmonize the party on the tariff
question. Randall is not expected
to be present.
These is some talk in southern

people voted for state division in
1860 and by a two-thirds vote con

A Washington correspondent
says that in the navy department
"Commodore Walker has practi
cally usurped about all the powers
that ought to belong to secretary
Whitney and admiral Porter."
Walker has great influence as head
of the bureau of navigation. He
has not been at sea since 1881.
The last time he had oommand of
a ship (the Powhatan) he ran her
ashore, and since then he has boy
cotted the raging main.
The tender of the Canadian Pa
cific railway for the English mail
service is as follews: It has of
fered to contract for the ocean
service at a speed of fifteen instead
of eleven -knots, and to build its
boats under the admiralty's super
vision, so that they may be readily
converted into armed cruisers, for
a subsidy of 10,000 per annum;
in addition to this it also offers to
carry the China and Japanese
mails for 3,500 miles across the
continent of America free of
charge; also to carry troops and
government stores over the same
distance of land over the ocean at
cost price, thus making the routs
an imperial highway.

A LoflfJ Way Up the Hirer.
The following is from the Baker
City Democrat, which declares that
it is as "true as 03pel." A few days
since James Holcomb. proprietor of
Sturgill bar on Snake river, was rid
ing along the bank of the river, when
he saw a large sturgeon lying in two
and a half or three feet of water, ap
parently asleep. The fish's head
would bob up and the tail down, then
the tail would up and the head down.
Jim looked a long time at the fish,
and finally the thought struck him
that he wanted that fish, bnt the
only thing he had to kill or capture
it with was a lasso and plenty of
rocke. So he took his rope and
walked quietly into the water and up
behind his fishship and dropped the
rope over his taiL He did not dare
cignien on tne rope until ne nau dis
abled the fish; so he took up a large
rock and when the head came up he
let the stone ge: and ho made a splen
did shot and hit it square on the
head and stunned the fish. Then he
drew the fish to the bank, tied it to a
tree and finished it with a pocket
knife. The fish was nine feet seven
inohes long and weighed over 500
Believed to Be Trne.
The Chinese hereabouts are appre
hensive that all the Chinese mining
camps on Snake river have been
wiped out, says the Idaho Free Press.
They say there are fifty or siity Chi
nese mining on the Oregon side of
Spake river about forty miles above
Lewiston, and from the mutilated re
mains of Chinamen that have floated
down they expect that either Indians
or whites have raided the camp and
killed off the entire bunch. The Chi
nese in Lewiston are strongly exer
cised over the matter and have sent
up four scouts to look around, and
are also corresponding with the Chi
nese Minister at Washington to in
vestigate the matter.
Tlie Verdict Unanimous .
W. D. Suit, Drugeist Bippus. Ind.,
testifies: "I can recommend .hiectnc
Bitters as the very best remedy. Every
bottle sold has given relief In every case
One man took six bottles, and was cured
of Rheumatism of 10 years' standing.'
Abraham Hare, druggist, Bellville,
Ohio, affirms: "The best selling medi
cine I have ever handled in my 20 years'
experience, is Electric Bitters." Thou
sands of others have added their testi
mony, so that the verdict Is unanimous
that Electric Bitters do cure diseases of
