Washinutos, Dec. 10, 1301.
Congress continues to apply itself
with unprecedented energy to the con
sideration of tbe many important ques
tions upon which it will be required to
legislate and material progress baa been
made. The senate has discussed the
various phases of tbe Hay-Pauncetote
treaty and, while some of tbe clauses of
the treaty are not as clear as might be
desired, a vote will be taken on its
ratification today which it ia safe to say
will be almost unanimously affirmative.
Tbe senate committee on Isthmian
canals has reported favorably on Senator
Morgan's Nicaraguan canal bill and that
gentleman, as chairman of the com
mittee, has explained its various pro
visions to the senate and has, in so
doing, condemned the Panama Canal
company's methods unstintedly. Ac
tion on the bill has been deferred for
the present but there is no doubt that
it will be favorable.
- Both houses of congress have set
December 10th, as the day on. which
adjournment for the holiday recess will
be taken uud it is doubtful if any legis
lation beyond the ratification ol the
above named treaty will be accom
plished before that time. It is just
possible that the bill providing for a
t'oilippine tariu, winch will come up
from the bouse on the 13th, may be

Senator Frye has reintroduced bis

eBtablisemhnt of regular steamship lines
between this country and foreign ports
and that without such regular lines all
efforts to entarga the foreign trade of
the tountry will be seriously hampered
While the members of congress are loth
to express themselves in advance I have
met a number of representatives who
are opposed to the measure and it is
very doubtful if it will become a law,

Two men, who were working in a
tunnel in this county, recently experi
enced a very uncomfortably narrow
escape from death or serious injury.
At their request their names are omit
ted from the narrative.
The tunnel where they were working
is being driven into the face of a very
steep rock cliir and for convenience the
b'acksmith shop is situated just at the
mouth of the tunnel so that the only
way in or out of the tunnel is through
the shop. One ni,lit, ss they were
working with drill and hammer their
attention was attracted by a peculiar
roaring sound and looking towards the
mouth of the tunnel they discovered the
blacksmith shop apparently in bright
flame. Instantly they realized what
had happened. The box of giant
powder which had been left near the
fire to thaw had caught Are iu some
unknown manner and was burning
briskly. The startled workers could
not tell what instant the burning
powder might explode nor when the fire
might reach a box of caps which were
in the shop and whose ignition would
certainly precipitate the explosion, but
they were certain that if they stayed in
the tunnel they would be smothered
by smoke. They made a quick decision
to run for it and bolted out through the
shop and up the steep trail to a point ol
safety. There they stopped and
observed the fire which bad ignited the
shop and was increasing every instant
It occurred to them that it was too bad
to let the shop, the product of so uiueb
bard labor, burn up with all the tools
without an effort bring made to save
them, so one of the men, absolutely
taking his life in his hand, returned to
the burning shop, secured the raps and
took them out, then seized the box of
burning powder and pitched it far down
tbe cliff, extinguished IheJlre and saved
It is characteristic of the nature of
giant powder that this did not explode
even when lulling a considerable dis
tnnce upon the solid rock, but burned
itself up and went out as quietly as a

Girl Wouldn't Slexnd Up
A marriage license was issued last
evening at 5 o'clock to James S.irsgue
and Elsie Parker, a maul of 18 summers,
and the hour for the marriage was set
(or7 o'clock, says the Pendleton Tribune.
The wedding party wenl in a group to
Justice Thomas Fitzgerald's ollice, all
so merry that they did not notice the
thoughtful, downcast look on the young
girl's face. They gathered before the
Justice ready for the cen ninny. When
the groom and his promised bride were
asked to step forward, she refused to
take any further part in the coremony.
The little company was startled and
looks of wonderment passed from one
to another. Judge Fitzgerald stood with
solemn mien waiting. Friends gather
ed around the girl, but she could not be
persuaded to take the flnal step. After
an hour of pleading by the groom and
his friends, the party left the room.
The young girl gave no reason, but
it ia thought she had not consulted her
parents, .snd hid been induced to elope
and becoming repentant, had decided
not to get married. Ilur parents live
at Camas Praiiie, hut she has Wen
visiting at Itoach Ilros.' ranch on McKay
Creek, heie Jaunts Hprag'ie was em
ployed. The young man remained in
the Justice's office titer his intended
bride had forsaken him, and In a chok
ing voice said: "She told me to gut the
license, and now she won't get married.
I don't know what to do."

Bpeetaealsr Featwre of Teat Will D
Ski Cooperatloa of Navy awe At
teaast of BIT Owns to Force
Within the past few day the war
department has taken the first step
toward carrying out what will be a
most interesting teat of war material,
to take place In New York harbor dur
ing tho coming summer. The experi
ment will constitute a thorough and
practical test of the adopted system
of fire control a It Is technically
called; in other words, the direction
of the Are of the guns of a modern
fortification from the large 12-lnch
gun down to the 8-Inch rapid-fire
One of the moot Interesting point
to be determined 1 the relative mer
its of the vertical and horizontal ranire
finders. A portion of the test will
consist of tiring- ut targets, and this
will naturally be done with service
projectiles and powder. The object
of this part of the work will be to
determine how closely the rnngs and
pnaition finder hava located the tar
gets. Another part of tho test, and with
out question tho most Interesting
from a spectacular point of view end
thus to the public, will be that poj
tlon wherein tho navy will be asked to
cooperuto. Tills will consist In an
attempt on tho part of ono or more
war vessels to enter the uppor har
bor of New York unmolested by the
fire from the formidable fort ou each
side of the Narrows. In this case the
fire from both contestant will be
with blank cartridges, though the
powerful searchlight of the forts and
vessels will ndd realism to tho uiht
attacks. TIiIb part of tho coming test
will be quite similar to the maneuvers
conducted last fall In Nnrragansett
hay, in which tho value of the search
light nan so well demonstrated that
congress at it Inst session appropri
ated the sum of $130,000 to aupplj
them for New York harbor aloiie.
It I anticipated that quite a dis
tinguished party nt officials will be
present during the tests. Including the
secretary of war and possibly the sec.
retnry of the novy. The tests will be
conducted under the general direction
of the board of ordnance and fortifica
tion. PERFORMS BIO MEDICAL FEAT
