Every Day and Night
( Neil to Co a. )
The two locomotives which met in
collision near Roseburg. nn the Southern
Pacific, last week, have been brought to
the shops on the East Siue. The en
gines are Nos. 1768 and 1750, and they
were literally torn to pieces. No worse
wreck has ever happened on this divi
sion. What is left of them is on several
cars, and there are simply thousands ot
pieces. On the cars are the (ragmenls
of the two tenders. Here are piled up
twisted bars and plates, cylinders and
heavy iron parts in every conceivable
shape. The locomotives were brought
down on their wheels and are in the
same position they were in after the
collision. The front ends of the boilers
are elevated, riddled and torn, showing
something of the terrific force with which
they came togother. Iu the center the
drive-wheels are lifted about six inches
above the track, as the entire bodies of
the locomotives were bent upwards.
Men who have been on the division for
a great many years say this is the worst
that had ever been brought to the
chops. Tiiere is hardly a liolt or bar in
either locomotive that is not bent or
broken. Tho great mass of fragments
on the flitcars tells something of the
force of the collision, and the hundreds
ot people who have viewed the wreck
have wondered how it was possible that
any one of the trainmen should have
escaped instant death. Oregon ian, 14lh.

Nearly every senator and representa
tive who has been to Washington since
the election, regardlesa ot political
affiliation, has expressed pleasure that
the result of the election was so over
whelming that the talk of fraud and
corruption which has disgusted so many
after some of our national elections has
been conspicuously absent this time.
It is also almost generally agreed that
it was the great prosperity of the coun
try that brought about the result rather
than blind devotion to any political
party. That belief ia based upon the
general idea that the average man who
ia doing well la averse to taking the
chances involved in making a change,
even when be believes that the change
might be beneficial, The rejoicing ol
the dominant party has also been
remarkably free from partisan rancor,
which has bail a good effect upon the
spirits of the defeated and added to the
all around pleasantness.
Podtmaster General Smith, who ac
companied a delegation of Philadelphia!!!
to the White House, succeeded in get
ting a conditional acceptance from the
president of an invitation to attend the
Founder's day banquet of the Union
League club, of Philadelphia, to be
given on the twenty-fourth Inst.
Senator Mason, who, by the way, is
again a regular and welcome visitor at
the White House, has announced his
intention to champion at the coming
session of Congress what he regards as
the most important internal improve
ment cotitemplsted in the middle aert
legislation providing lor a survey to
enlarge to a regular ship canal and
extend the present Chicago drainage
canal to connect the great lakes and the
St. Lawrence and the Mississippi rivers
and the Gulf of Mexico. He says the
undertaking is of the greatest com
mercial importance to practically the
entire portion of the United States
between tho Allegheny and the Rocky
Mountains. He will endeavor to got
the president to help the project along
by giving it a good word in his annual
message to congress, and is confident of
success. If hard work and perseverance
wiH win Senator Mason will, as he is
lull of both.
Judging from what is being printed on
the auhject, it uiiuht be supposed the'
all the campaign liars had been assigned
to the job of writing up the proposed
magnificence and grandeur of the
second inauguration of President Mc
Kinley. In order to make their slorios
picturesque and startling, not a few of
these writers have entirely dispensed
with that very iiselul article known as
common ...use The mere ceremony of
swearing in the chosen ruler of more
than 70.000,000 will of itself, be impos
ing and magnificent, and there can be
no doubt that it will occur amidst
proper surroundings Hill all tho talk
about surrounding it with all the gorg
eousness and costliness of the greatest
royal, pageant Europe has ever seen
the London jubilee procession, is poppy
cock, and can only find believers among
those who do not know where the
money comes fiom to pay the expenses
of inaugurating a president. Not one
cent of it conie-i out of public money,
The residents of Washington always
subscribe in advauce, tne amount the
committee estimates will be needed, so
that the committee will not be bum
pered in Its work by lack of ready
money. The receipts from thesale of
tickets to the inaugural ball, privileges
to the street stands, etc., usually aggre
gate an amount large enough to pay all
expenses and the money advanced to
the comuiitiee ia returned to the sub
scribers, but it is not a ways so. and

return it. It must lie evident that the

does not pretend to say what the com
mittee will do, but It is very evident
from bis guarded talk that he isn't
expecting a bill that Hill make sweep
ing reductions. There is good ground
for the belief that the bill whiib will
be reported to the house will not nuke
reductions of more than (20,000,000 a
year, -and even that much would be
doubtlol if the president had not so
strongly committed himself in favor ol
reducing these taxes. The prevailing
idea in official and congressional circles
seems to be that uncertainty as to the
immediate future in China and in the
Philippines, make it advisable for this
government to have a staff surplus of
cash on hand to meet any possible
It is officially denied that Secretary
Root's visit lo Cuba has anything to do
with the Cuban constitutional conven
tion, now lilting in Havana, although
it ia official and will be utilized in
visiting sections of the island not
reached by him when he was over
there some months ago. Many believe
that Secretary R iot has gone to Cuba
as the personal rspreseulative of the
president, and that hie report of exist
ing conditions will be an Important
factor in the future attitude of this
government toward the island. Inas
much as the work of the Cuban consti
tutional convention will, if completed
in lime, be at once submitted to con
gress, it ia not thought that the pri
dent's annual message to congress will
contain lany important Cuban recom
mendations. His well to know Ibat Ie Witt's Witch

The Man of Her Choice
LBy Wm. J. tampion. c

MARY HOWARD waa the prettiest
chambermaid in the hotel, and
Mr. I)oan waa the oldest boarder.
Not ohlest In point of years, but in
point of occupancy, although he was
not as young as he waa when
he passed his fiftieth birthday. He
roomed on the floor that Mary haJ
the care of, and after a year'a ac
quaintance with her he had decided
in his own mind th-it she waa a very
nice girl. Mary liked Mr. Down well
enough, but that was all, for he was a
bachelor, and she rattier had her
doubta about auch old bachelors as be
waa. Hut Mr. Ooan waa rich and
liberal, and so polite always that he
gradually won favor in Mary'e eyee.
One 8undny when she waa fixing
up his room, which waa the only time
she ever suw him there, he began talk
ing to her.
"Do you know, Mary," he said, with
evident sincerity, "that you are the
prettiest girl in the hotel?"
"Yes, sir," replied Mary.
Mr. Down was somewhat staggered
by thia unexpected frankness.
"Oh, you do, do you?" he responded,
"I ought to," she aald; "every man
I have seen in this hotel haa told me
so, except you, and now you have, so
they can't all be telling stories."
Thia explanation did not quite suit
Mr. Doan, but Mary was quick-witted,
and he let It go as she put It.
"I presume," he aald, apologetically.
"I oaght to have told you so before,
because I have known It ever since the
first day I saw you, but you seemed
to me to be a ludy, and I did not
want you to think that I was not a

Indy In distress, as the story-tellers
have It, Two years ngo my father
died, leaving us nothing hut a lltth

my mother and brother live. He never
was rloh. but he was a gentleman,
and when ha left us poor, somebody
had to do something, and I took this
plnce. It was the only thing I could
do for wages right from the sturt,
mid we needed something to live on
My brother found a plnce In a store,
and between us we manage to live."
"You're as good a girl aa you ars
pretty, Mary," said Mr. Doan, "and I
must go out and see that mother of
So he did, too, and came back with
very agreeable impressions of the
sweet old lady of 00 that he bod mot.
"Mary," ha sold on the following
Sunday, "how would you like me to
be your father 7"
"You are quite old enough to be,"
she aaid, sharply, "but you are not

Hut Mary did; not like the subject,
and went out without continuing the
conversation. Half an hour later as
she was carrying a roll of quilts aoroes
the hall in front of the elevator, into
which Mr. Doan had Just steppsdv that
always uncertain method of locomo
tion got loose and started down the
shaft for the bottom, seven floors be-
low. Mary knew what was ooniing, or
going, rather, anil with a scream she
dashed the roll ot quills Into the open
door. The cage had only a slight start
audi the quilts were caught and
wedged in between the floor and the
elevator roof and the downward move
ment stopped with a noise like a wheel
taking a rubber brake. Mary uroppsd
in a faint. Mr. Doan almost had a
spaam in the elevator where he was
boxed up, the elevator boy earns run
nlng from a rousn where he had gone
to deliver a message, somebody turnsd
in a fire alarm and the whole place
waa In an uproar. The firemen wars
restrained from turning the hoes
on Mr. Doan, and busied themselvss
rigging timbers In the elevator shaft
below the cage to catch it, when the
qulite were withdrawn, and preaantly
Mr. Doan came down with a thump,
and walked out scared almost white.
The papers next morning had a
whole column about it, with a large
picture of Mary, the big heaiHinea
about the brroiam of a ehamliermaid.
It happened on Kriday, and on Sunday
Mary was at her post again. When
Mr. Doan saw her he did not wait to
ask her about the flowera lie had sent
to her bouse, nor about his having
called to see her without seeing her.
"Msry," he said, In the mutter of
fact wny of a man of SO, "you saved
my life, ami I want to do something
to show in y appreciation of It."
"Oh, Mr. Hi. nn," she almost pleaded,
"don't say anything more about it.
I rXdn't do anything."
"You saved my life. Isn't that any
thing? It Is to me if It Isn't lo you!"
"I would have done just the same

"Well, I'm going to offer you some

"You nu an you want to marry me
for saving your life?" aaksd Mary
"Not exactly, Mary. I I 1," hes
itated Mr. Doan.
"It's just the same thing, and I
can't permit it," said Mary resolutely.
"You are rich and I am poor, and it

to see her mother that afternoon, and
the mother promised to do what she
could, for she liked Mr. Doan. Still
Mary would not listen to reason. She
said if she had money It might be dif
ferent, for then people could not say
she eaved the man for hla money. . It
was really a silly and fooiisn position

One morning a week later Mary re
ceived a note asking her to call at Mr.
Down's olt'u-e. Greatly puzaled, she
went, and Mr. Doan and another man
were waning for her. The other man
whs Mr. IXmn's lawyer.
"Mary," aald Mr. Doan, after the
usuui salutations and an Introduc
tion. "tm you give me a dollar?"
Mary took out her thin little purse
and found three quarters, three nick
els and a dime, which she h united over
to Mr. Doun without a question.
"I'd like to borrow a nirkel f It for
ear fare," ahe laughed nervously.
"You won't need it, Miss Howard,"
aald the lawyer politely.
"Here are some papers, Mary," said
Mr. Down, handing her a large packet.
"You won't undera.and them if you
look at them, so I will merely tell you
that they are deeds to all the real
property I own and include the cer
tificates of all the stocks In my pos

Mary, In a dared fashion, opened the
packet, and the only thing ahe could
read wast "Know All Men lly These
Presents, that for and in considera

drop the paper, and begin to cry. The
lawyer discreetly got out of the of
flee, and Mr. Donn stepped over to
the svindow. The room waa atlll ex
cept for Mary's faint snillls, and the
twittering of a couple of sparrows on
the telegraph wire in front of the
window. 'Die stlllnei s seemed to soothe
the perturled spirit, and presently she
lifted her fnce from htr wet hand

her hand, only one hand, to him, "ia It

Mary looked at him and again the
tears filled her eyee.
"Mr. Doan," she said, "If I were to
tell you that there was a younger
man I loved; one whom I had known
since I waa a little girl and who had
been waiting until he could earn
enough to make us comfortable, would
you st.il let mi have thia money?
Aren t you giving It to me because you
do not know this and hope to win me
Mr. Doan choked a little. He had
not heard of this young man. Per
haps If he had he would have been
less generous. He might have given
him a poaitlnn In his nflice or helped
him along in some other way. It waa
harlly neeeasary to tmpovsriah him
self for the sake of letting the woman
he wanted for hia wife marry another
man. Hut Mr. Doan had the right
kind of a tuff in hla make up.
"I don't know what you want to do
with it, Mary, and I don't ears," he
said bravely. "What I want It to do
Is to make you the happlrst woman
in the world, and that will make me
feel It ia where It will do the moat
good. All I ask is r-hat when 1 am too
old to work any longer you will board
and lodge me at a reduced rate and
give me a fnlr funeral."
Mr. Doan laughed at hie Joke, but
Mary did not. She put ont both her
hands to him.
"There la no younger man, Mr.
Doan," she said, "and If you will have
me for your wife, you may"
Mr. Doan acted ridiculously for a

broke away from him and warned
