ileleirates from the territories of "Wyoni-
in" ami ItLnho res;;ectivelv, to hokl
their seats as such daligalca until
Wyoming and Idaho send representa

soon in the house. Iu this connection,
Hairy Smith, journal clerk ol the
house, calls attention to a
that came up in congress years ago. ;
It was the case of Paul Fearing, i
.1rtlrt.rr,to frnr.1 llio 7inrf hwostnni lorri-
from the northwestern terri-
the seventh congress. The
of Fearing's right to a"seat in

That resolution was referred on
December 11, 1802, to the committee
on election, which committee on the
1st ot January, thereafter, made the
following report, viz:
"Jtatolced, that Paul Fearing, a
delegate from the territory northwest
of the river Ohio, is still entitled io a
scat in this house."
The report was not acted on, bnt
Fearing, who had taken his scat at the
commencement of the session, Dec. (!,
1802, held his seat until the expiration
of congrens on the -llh ot March, 18015,
and drew pay for that session. Ohio
was admitted on the 29lh of Novem
ber. 1S02, and yet Mr. Fearing served
as delegate through the second session
of the seventh congress, which began
Dec 5, 1802.
The law in respect to the election of
delegates is covered by section No.
18G2, ot tho revised statutes, which is

Benton. Gen. John Charles Fremont
was born in Savannah, Ga., Jan 21,
1813. His father was a French immi
grant. He received a good education,
though left an orphan when four years
old, and when seventeen years old
graduated at Charleston college, S. C;
taught mathematics; turned his at
tention to engineering, and was rec
ommended to the government to be
employed in the Mississippi survey.
Ho afterwards served at Washington
in constructing maps of that region.
Having received the commission of a
lieutenant of engineers, he proposed
to the war department to penetrate
the Kocky mountain region. His plan
was approved, and in 1S12 he explored
the South Pass. Soon after he
planned a new expedition to Oregon.
He approached the mountains by a
new route, examined the region south
of the South Pass, turned aside to the
Great Salt Lake and connected his
expedition with that of Wilkes's ex
pedition. He also conducted another
party, which discovered new and
grand features in Alta California, the
great basin called by his name, tho
Sierra Nevada, tho San Joaquin and
Sacramento valleys, and determined
much of tho geography of the far west
ern regions. In 1815 he was again on
the road to the Pacific to examino in
detail tho Pacific slope a journey
which resulted in giving many new
facts of importance to the world, and
indeed gave California to the United
States. After the conquest ot upper
California, in xvhich ho bore a con
spicuous part, he was involved in a
quarrel between two other officers,
and was deprived of his commission
by sentence of a court-martial. The
president offered to reinstate him, but
he declined. He retrieved his honor
by the survey of a route for a great
road from the Mississippi to San
Francisco; pierced tho hitherto un
known country of the Apaches; de
feated or terrified the hostile savages;
and in ono hundred days after leaving
Santa Fe, stood by the Sacramento;
was sent as one of the first United
States senators from California, serv
ing 1819-51, Ho was in 185G the first
Bepublican candidate for president,
in opposition to Mr. Buchanan, the
Democratic candidate, and though he
received a largo voto (111 electoral
votes to 171 for Buchanan and 8 for
Fillmore) ho was defeated. In 1SG1-C2
he served in the Union army as a
major-general, and by the Cleveland
convention of 1S61 was again nomi
nated for president, but soon with
drew his name for the candidacy. He
was made governor ot Arizona terri

A Tet Cat Named Tom.
The United States revenuo cutter
Woleott has a pet cat named Tom.
One of the lieutenants picked Tom up
in Seattle six years ago. As tho lieu
tenant was walking along the street
one night in it driving rain storm he
heard tho plaintive cries of a little
kitten straggling in a gutter with only
its head above water. He rescued the
kitten and carried it aboard ship. It
became a great favorite among the
men and officers, and thdy taught him
many tricks. Ho always shook hands
when invited to do so by his friends.
Tom has displayed considerable in
telligence for a cat. Three times he
has been lost from the steamer, but
he always manages to return in good
shape. Once he was left at Port
Angeles and w;is not seen for six
weeks, when the ship calling at the
wharf, ho demurely walked aboard
and commenced shaking hands with
the men. He was also left at lrondale
and at tho Seattle coal bunkers, but
he invariably wailed near the xvharf
and returned to tho ship at the first
opportunity. -Seattle J'ress'.
The Tia Plate Monopoly.
The rumor that an English syndi

in tho Mclvinley bill is plansiblo.
The importations of tin plate into tho
United States amount to ox-cr $20,
000.000 annually. To manufacture
that tin plate gives employment to
something like 30,000 people. What
is sold hero for tin plato is nine-tenths
iron and steel. The men who can
make it and sell that much iron and
steel for tin can certainly afford to pay
liberally to fix the laws "or the United

of tins country, xx'ho are accustomed
to living wages, cannot compete with I

Special by The TJsitxd Press.
London, July 13. Just as the steam
ship City of Rome was pulling up
anchor to leave Liverpool for New
York to-day Mrs. Frank Leslie sent
ashore- the following despatch : "I am
not engaged, but am starting,, for
home to-day to attend my work and
prepare for my lecture season."
Deluve's attempt this time to force
Mrs. Leslie into marrying him was an
actual sensation. The new snrjerin-
tendent register of Hanover square,
St George's district, was ready with a
license waiting to marry them this
morning at 9 o'clock, but when Deluve
went to Mrs. Leslie's nnnrrmfint in
the Burlington hotel, to his chagrin
tho marquis found that Mrs. Leslie's
trunks were on the hotel omnibus, and
just starting for America. He wanted
to get into the omnibus with her, but
she would not let him, and he followed
ner m a nansom cab to Eustan station,
and went on the same train to Liver
pool. - His persistent persecution ef: Mrs.
Leslie this season has been more
marked than ever. A short time ago
he gave a reception at his apartmente
and was in straits how to decorate
them. He sent to Liberty, the cele
brated art fabric dealer for specimens
of decorations which he said he want
ed to purchase. This he spread over
his apartments in fine array just as
the guests had assembled. Then
Liberty's man came along with an
order to take the goods away unless
the marquis purchased 1CX) worth.
The baffled marquis purchased this
amount for cash and the goods 'were
allowed to remain over night The
marquis had previously worked tins
game with success, but Liberty was
too much for him the second time.

Canadian Coast Defenses arcBc
Special to Tub Astokian.i
Ottaxx-a, Ont, July 13. Within the
last month there has-been a great deal
of correspondence between the British
and Dominion governments regarding
the defences of Canada. Fortifications
at Halifiax are being greatly strength
ened by tho British government, and
the strictest injunctions have been
given to prevent any outsider gaining
admittance to the forts or knowledge
of the improvements that are being
carried out Tho naval defences of
the Atlantic seaboard have been
strengthened by the arrival of two
large torpedo boats at Halifax from
England. This week on the Pacific
coast the defences of British Columbia
are being strengthened, and several
pieces of modern and heavy ordnance
will arrive there from England for the
defence of theprovinces shortly.
The tleet congregated at Esquimalt
is the largest ever in that section, and
the idea of establishing a naval reserve
at Esquimalt, recruited from the
British navy, is revived from head
quarters at Ottawa. An order ha3
gone ont to several deputy adjutant
generals to furnish full information
regarding the condition ot the forces
and the defences of their respective
districts. That the British authorities
arcawakening from that state of
lethargy which has always character
ized their sympathies toward Canada
is most apparent, whilo the local or
Dominion authorities are showing no
less activity in preparing for any
