"Washington, July 12. When the
silver bill came up for discussion in
the house to-day, J31aud, of Mo., con
curred with the gentleman in hoping
that the next house of representatives
would be a free coinage house, but
that the house would be composed of
those who advocated free coinage and
stood by their colors. It wonld not
be composed of the ltepublican party
which by a gag rule has voted down
and stifled freo coinage. It free coin
age come at all it would come from
that party which stood firm to tho
flag or free coinage, and which has not
surrendered its principles at the beck
of "Wall street Ho denied that the
bill was the result of a free and fair
conference. It was the result of secret
meetings of theHepublicanconferrees.
He, as a couferree, had known nothing
of the measure until it had been
framed and the report ready to be
feigned. The Democratic members
had been iguored in the preparation
or the bill. Tho bill was one which
practically demonetized silver. It
was a sugar-coated quinine pilL On
the lirst reading it seemed that the
secretary was to purchase -1,500,001)
ounces per month; but when a mau
rolled the pill around in his mouth he
began to taste tho bitterness of the 'or
so much thereof as may be offered."
Here could bo traced in this meas
ure the stealthy "Italian hand." The
bill surrendered every principle; it
made combination with the bullion
speculators of "Wall street in tho in
terest of Wall street; it departed from
the legal ratio aud changed that ratio
from sixteen to one to twenty to one.
To change the ratio of gold to silver
as established by usage, "was to pile up
much capital in the treasury at the
expense of the people aud in the in
terest of Wall street aud bullion own
ers and he denounced it as a fraud
and a cheat on the people, who were
demanding a ratio of sixteen to one.
The bill made silver simply a coin
odity, to be measured by gold, upon
which money shall be issued at its
value. It "was true that the measure
might make an increase in the gen
eral circulation, but it would make it
by concession to the goid standard
and a desertion of silver. It was :i
declaration that congress would not
mako any further fight for bi-metal-isra.
It was neither a silver bill nor
a greenback bill, but simply a political
device concocted to tide over tin
We denounced it as a fraud and would
denounco any measure as a fraud that
did not provide free coinage. When
the bill that has his name was passed
(the I3Iand bill) had fallen into a trap,
every silver representative then felt
perfectly confident that the next pres
ident would sign a free coiuagc bill.
Ho would refer to the history of
these members now willing to accept
this report as leading to free coiuage.
Now was tho time to mako a fight. If
the conference report was rejected
another conference would be held and
the objectionable features of the re
port striken out, and that is what he
had undertaken to do.
Morrow, of California expressed his
approval of the conference report and
proceeded to argue tha

Jamestown, 2?. D., July 12. On the
night of June 7th last, tlio Northern
Pacific train was boarded near New
Salem, N. D., by two masked men,
who terrorized people on the cars.
Tho men got away with several
pouches of registered mail matter.
One of the robbers was afterward cap- i
tured. Tho postal authorities prob-,
ably know by this time the amount i
they secured. The published estimate
ofSo.OOO to 0,000, as the amount, is j
but a rude guess. It is believed that the J
robbers got away -with nearly 50,000.
The postal inspectors have searched
over the ground where they caught
tho robbers and they found, in torn
bits and ragged pieces, a large amount
of currency including one bill of
SI ,000. There were found numerous
tens and twenties, moro or less mutil
ated. A whole bundle hail been
dropped in ono place, and in the rob

separated the money and tho wind
had scattered it The amount re

or Interest to Mauy.
Representative Hermann h:is intro
duced u bill in congress for repayment
to E. C. Masten, of Portland, of the
sum of S100, being tho purchase
money on one quarter sectiou of laud
entered at the Oregon City l.wd
The case is doubtless of interest to
numerous entryniou ou tho Pacific
coast and especially thoso euleriug
what are alleged to be timber lands.
The department declines repayment
and in its decision to Mr. Hermann
states that tho United States special
agent reports tho land to be fit for
cultivation, although covered with
timber. That the preliminary
affidavit required of entry men
under tho act of Juno o, 1878, is the
same both under the timber-culture
and timberland law, lo the extent that
the condition of the land must be set
forth in each case, and implies a per
sonal knowledge thereof, on tho part
of the entrymen. It was tho duty of
purchaser lo have made a personal
examination of the laud before entry,
and by his failure so to do the govern
ment was not in fault iu allowing tho
entry. The department then proceeds
to eito authorities as a precedent, and
says: In the case of Falk Stein
hnrdt (7 Ij. D., 10) Secretary
Vilas says: "It is evident from these
facts that said affidavit was made by
Steinhardt, without examination of
the land, or knowledge of its condi
tion, upon which to date the same,
aud this view is supported by the
further fact found by your said
office decision, that said laud, when
cleared of its limber would bo
well suited to agricultural pur
poses." This state of fact, I think fully
warrants the conclusion that said
entry was obtained through fraud. In
the case of Charles P. Coffin (G D. D.,
389) it was held that (.quoting from
syllabus) on cancelation of an entry
made for land not subject thereto, by
reason of a natural growth of limber,
repayment will not be allowed where
the entryman, without examination of
tue land, or Knowledge or its condition,
mado oath that tho land was devoid
of timber.

San Francisco, July 12.-It is re
ported here to-day that a corps of
Southern Pacific engineers havo been
ordered at once to a point on the Cal
ifornia and Oregon line near Rose
burg, for the purpose of prospecting
to tho eastward in the Cascade range,
with a view of finding'an easier though
longer route for the main road to Ore
gon. It is said that Hnntington on
his trip to Oregon last May, became
impressed with the importance of this
and railroad matters in that
section. It is further re
ported that the engineers will
proceed toward mount Thielsen in
Douglass county and thence souther
ly into Klamath and Lake counties,
and down into Modoc county, thence
along the courses of the Fall and Pitt
rivera to some point on the main line
near Redding, which has about the
same elevation as Roscburg, from
which it is 311 miles distant. It is
not clear whether tins surveying move
is purely for tho Southern Pa
cific or for the Oregon and
Narrow Gnago which Huntington
bought from the Scotch owners while
he was out here recently. Its present
terminus is Coburg near Eugene City
only about 75 miles above Rosebnrg
and its extension by this possible
route indicates that he will mako it a
valuable piece ot railroad property.
