a man of much sterner mould
than Casimir Pcrier, and is 8ud to

of the late M. Carnot. ,

notes to meet the deficiency, thee
to be redeemable in gold aoin and to
bo constantly reissued. It further
directs the coinage of tho seignior

Firtt Week cf the Legislature,
Salem, Or., Jan. 18. All things
considered, tho legislature has made
a pretty good showing for its first
week's work. There is unmistak
able evidence that both houses
have a distinctly business tone in
their makeup, which will result in
a good deal of practical conserva'
tive legislation. The senate, of
course, makes the best showing. It
has the advantage of smaller num
bers, an experienced presiding of
ficer, 15 hold over senators, two
who have been in it at other ses
sions, two members of the last
house, and some others who have
sat in other deliberative bodies.
The house is mostly ono of new
members. Only four of its mem
bers were in the last session and
many ore utter strangers to parlia
mentary usage. There is plenty of
discordance, waiting for the vicissi
tudes of roll-call and committee
reports to develop into hostility

P. M , the mortal remains of Ste
phen F. Chadwick were consigned
to a grave lined with evergreens,
and his casket was strewn with the
choicest flowers. The obsequies
throughout were inspiring in their
grandeur and earnestness.

Oreoon City, Jan. 18. News
reached here today of a shocking
accident whereby Mr. Scheurer. a
German farmer residing near New
Era Btation, lost his life Tuesday.

dinner, but after going a short dis
tance the father remembered that
he had left his coat behind and
returned for the garment. The
boys continued on their way to the
house. The father did not appear
for dinner, and knowing him to be
subject to fits, a hurried search

wholly consumed and the flesh
horribly burned. It is supposed
that ho was seized with a fit, foil

Secretary Carlisle's Opinion.
Washington, Jan. 21. Secretary
Carlisle was present by request at
an important meeting today of the
house appropriations committee.
In reply to the question what ob
jection there would be to a system
of redeemiug notes in gold and sil
ver, at the option of the secretary
of the treasury instead of the hold
er, the secretary answered, "If
that policy had been inaugurated
at the beginning of resumption, it
would have worked beneficially
and no trouble would have amen
from it, but my predecessors have
followed the policy of redeeming in
gold or silver, at the option of the
holder of paper, and any secretary
who tried to change this policy and
work silver on a man who wanted
gold, or vice versa, especially at
such a critical period as we have
been passing through, would hava
precipitated disasterous results."
