Murder at Wilhoit Spriugi.
OituriON City, Or. The discov
ery of the murder of James M.
Brown, of Wilhoit Springs, has
caused considerable excitement in
that neighborhood. Brown had
been missing for alxnit a week
when a party of neighbors visited
the house- to see if they could find
any clue to his absence. They
found the chickens fastened up in
the coop and nearly starved. In
the house there were blood spots
on the floor. Everything indicated
that the ranch had been d"serted
for several duj-s. Further search
discovered the body about a quar
ter of a mile from the house, in the
corner of a worm-fence, covered
with burlaps and several fence
rails lying upon them. It was
pretty well known in the neighbor
hood that Brown had received
quite a Bum of pension money, and
it is supposed that robbery was the
object bin murderer had in view.

Tha Wonderful Anti-Toxin.
Washington. United S t a tes
Consul Mason, at Frankfort, Ger
many, has submitted to the de
partment of state a most exhaust
ive report on anti toxine, the new
curative and preventative of diph
theria. Mr. Mason eives a clear
and detailed description of every
step in the process of the produc
tion of the new remedy, preceded
by an accurate history of rthe dis
coveiy and its development. In
72 cases of children treated within
two days of the first appearance of
diphtheria but two cases were fatal
and the death rate in such cases is
placed at 4 per cent. In Germany,
where the fatal cases used to aver
age GO per cent, the .mortal list has
been reduced to less than 15 per
cent, and will be still further re
duced when the country physicians
Genera Warner faron a Hew Party.
Washington. General A. J
Warner, president of the Bimetallic
league, in speaking today of the
conference recently held in this
city, said: "It was the decision of
the conference, and a strong and
growing sentiment as manifesting
itself in favor of uniting the friends
of bimetallism into a bimetallic
party and appealing directly to the
people on money issues alone. The
consideration which seems to be
leading to this result is the wide
spread conviction that there is no
hope of irestoring the bimetallic
standard through the republican
party or through the democratic
party as now controlled, and on
the other hand, it is equally impos
sible to accomplish this result
within the lines of the popnlUt
party, or to unite on the Omaha
platform those in favor of restoring
the bimetallic standard as it was

NoKSoUl Standard Men Xeed Apply.
Olympia, Wash. Contrary to
expectation, the free, silver issue is
not generally discussed in connec
tion with the senatorial fight. All
the candidates seem to be in favor
of the white metal, and no ques
tions are asked in regard lo the
much mooted problem. The free
coinage plank introduced in the
republican state platform at Spo
kane, after a most bUter conven
tion fight, seems to have put a
quietus on the enemies of free sil
ver. No candidate for senator can
afford to do anything but say he
will uphold and support the plat
form. In any other event he might
as well refine from the field.
