here from Australia that does not
bring news of tho massacre of some
white trader or skipper by tho natives,
who have been gradually driven into
desperation by the treatment they

many of tho islands have been depop

havo been added to the cheap labor
population of Now Caledonia, Queens

Special by The Uniteo Pjress.
'"Washington, Sept. 21. The Senate
this week will-continue to work on
the unfinished program outlined by
the Kepnblican caucus, and finish the
consideration of Senator Evarts' bill
for the relief of the Supreme Court,
which could come up as unfinished
business to-morrow. This and Sena
tor Edmunds' private land claims
court bill, which, was laid aside tem
porarily last week, will probably en
gage the attention of the Senate most
of the week, and the bill to transfer
the revenue marine from the treasury
to the navy department and several
labor bills next on tho program will
be more than enough to keep tho
Senate busy during the entire week.
The conference reports ou the gen
eral deficiency bill nnd the tariff bill,
which are likely to come in by tho
middle of tho week, may displace tho
labor bills untill next week. The
work of the Senate during the week,
as tho time for adjournment about
October 1st, approaches, bids fair to
become interesting if not exciting.
Republicans in the House have de
termined that tho Langston-Venable
contested election case shall be put
through this week, and that Langston
will bo seated boforo any other
business comes before the House.
They expected to accomplish
it this week, but the balance of the
quorum of the Bepnblican members
prevented tho action. As it is now
almost certain that a snfficient num
ber of tho Republican members pro
vented the action, it is now al&o cer
tain that a sufficient number of Re

Special to The Astorian.1
Portland, Sept 21. Geo. Easall,
a laborer in the employ of W. G.
Alexander, while attempting to swim

He was aged 38 years and single. He
was a native of New York, and has
relatives living in "Wisconsin. His
body was not recovered.
A Silo In Thirty Seconds.
A mile in thirty seconds was the
rate at which a party of newspaper
men were whirled along the Boston
bicycle railway from Gravesend to
Cony Island. A single bicycle pas
senger car was used. The car itself
was a double decker, in each deck
being six doubled and one single com
partment, each compartment being
by itself and entered from the side
of the car. Each is less in width
than half of tho standard gauge track,
so that two cars can pass each other
when they run on opposite rails. The
wheels of the car are directly under
tho center, a double ilango grasping
the rail. The car is prevented from
toppling over by double wheels at
tached to the top of the car and
running one on each side of a con
tinuous beam held up by frame-work
on either side ot the track. The
engiuo is a bicycle one also. The car
is run on the principle of a hoop in
motion which the faster it goes the
less likely it is to wobble or fall over.
Some engineering papers have al
ready declared it is destined to
revolutionize the present system of
passenger transportation. Boynten
says he can carry 1000 passengers at
tho rate of twenty miles an hour
continuously, or 600 passengers nt the
rate of 100 miles an hour.
Distinction is what we crave. The
degree is unimportant. If we can't

a special from Troy saying that full
confessions of the men implicated in
the recent train wrecking outrage on
the New York Central, have been ob
tained for publication, and that they
contain many damaging statements.
One of the most interesting features
is the implicating of a leader of the
Anights of Labor in the strike, Mas
ter "Workman Edward J. Lee. The
conspirators personally furnished
them with money to leave the country
after they wrecked the express. They
describe his conferences with the men
who were leaders in the plot. The
dispatch also assers that information
regarding the identity of the conspira
tors came to the railroad people from
the upper councils of the Knights,
and that since the strike began the
railroad company has had in its pay
men high in the order, who have con
stantly furnished information.
