Wabhinotok, V. C. Feb. 10, 1902.
The paat week in Washington has
been marked by two ot the largest and
moat elaborate social events, excepting,
of course, the atate function at the
White Houae, which have aver occurred
in tbi city. On Thursday Mia Helen
Hay, daughter of the aecretary of
state wa married to Mr. Payne Whit
ney, amid surroundings the moat
beautiful and elaborate which nnlimited
wealth could procure. The church of
the Covenant ii a bandeome, though not
ornate, etiucture, but on Thursday it
wa transformed into bower of easier
lilies. Fioui window to window wa
festooned southern auiilax and at every
angle was an immense bunch of lilies.
The middle aisle wa lined with tall
buncbee ol the same fragrant flower and
with li'ver candelabra ao that the
bridal party passed up a perfect avenue
ef light and lilies. Immense palm,'
cluster of lilies and white rose almost
screened the organ and surrounded the
When the pew were filled with
representative of the diplomatic corps,
member of the supreme' court and the
president and his family, surrounded by
the cabinet familiea, the assemblage
presented a most brilliant appearance.
The bride, who i an exceptionally
pretty girl, wore a very simple gown of
white satin and a tulle veil held in place
by a wreath of orange blossom. Bhe
carried a shower bouquet of white
orchids and orange blossoms, so
arranged as to fall over her band and
reach to the hem of her gown. The
marriage ceremony was.1, followed by
elaborate breakfast to which a com
paratively small number of guests were
bidden, The president, In a brief but
happy speech, proposed the health of
On Friday evening Senator and Mr,
iianna gave a private reception at the
Arlington hotel, the large ball room
being called into requisition and the
more formal early hour of the evening
being followed by dancing. Over one
tboniand guests were present during
the evening and many of them remarked
that the occasion reminded them of the
days of President Arthur's administra
tion when large entertainments were the
rule rather than the small and numerous
dinner with which they have since been
replaced. The occasion was somewhat
marred by the enforced absence of the
President and Mrs. Roosevelt, the latter
having been called that afternoon to
the bedside of their eldest eon who is
suffering from pneumonia at the college
at Grolon, Mas.
Tha illuese of Theodore Roosevelt,
Jr., baa seriously interfered with the
president' plans, it having been bis
intention to leave thi afternoon for
Charleston where he was- to have
attended the exposition now in progress.
At present hi movements are all in
abeyance and will depend entirely upon
the new from (iroton where he will go
immediately if hi sod's condition
should grow critical. Mrs. Roosevelt
had issued cards for an afternoon tea
for today but these have, of course, been
recalled. Apropos of young ltoosovelt'a
illuefi it may be well to lay that the
widely published statement that the
young man was responsible for the cus
tom followed by the students at Oroton,
of going without their hats, ha been
contradicted. The habit considerably
antedate yonng Theodore' entry to the
Aiide from the passage by the home
for aa appropriation bill which give to
the president the authority to place
under the restriction of the classified
service, those employe of ths war and
other department whose employment
was necessitated by the Spanish war, an
authority which the president desired
and which he will doubtless avail him
self, there has been no important .legis
lation at the capitol this week. The
senate ha passed the pension appro
priation bill carrying an appropriation
oi i.8,(iai,iaiu. in tuii include a
clause prohibiting the acceptance of a
fee or other compensation by attorney
or others for services rendered in secur
ing the psssage of special pension bills.
If the bouse passes the measure, Includ
ing thia clause, it will prove a severe
blow to a large nu m Iter of pension
The regular order nf business in the
senate is still the Philippines revenae
bill, but Benalor Lodge has given notice
that be believes the minority have
devoted sufficient time to it debate and
that be proposes to push its passato. It
will be followed by the irrigation bill,
to which It is believed there will be
little opposition in the upper chamber
but which will doubtlaa occupy con
siderable time judging the nuuibsr of
senator who have told me that tbey
have prepared speeches on the subject.
The house has devoted the major por
tion of ita time, since my lait letter, to
the consideration of the Henry oleomar
garine bill which i a lucceasor to the
Grout bill. The opposition ha been
particularly vigorous and prolix, the
maasure having been debated to a far
greater length than is equal with such
bills in the lower chamber.
Representative Oscar W, Underwood,
of Alabama ha beeo among those who
have contested the pasaage ef the bill
and when I asked bim the reason for
bi opposition yeaterday be (aid, "I
consider It one of the most dangerous
pieces ot class legislation which ba aver
been brought before the bouse. In
spirit, the measure is an absolute in'
terferenca with interstate commerce.
Oleomargarine ha been pronounced I
legitimate and healthful food product
and thi bill 1 an attempt to tax it out
ef eiistence. Of course it is framed
onder the guise of a revenue measare
and as 1 have no doubt the auprem
court will sustain it but no on candidly
believe that It is being proposed fur tbe
loiall revenue which will be derived
'This bill assesses a tax of 10 cents
on every pound of oleomargarine that is
colored yellow. 8uppose that the time
should coma when the beet sugar in
terest controlled a majority in this
home and they, taking this bill as a
precedent, should conclude to assess
white cane sugar 10 cents per pound.
A yea know, all cane augar is yellow
until it i refined and they might, with
equal jaitice, maintain that to refine it
until it wa whit wa to mak it aimilar
in appearance to beet sugar and con
sequently a violation ot tha right of tbe
beet lugar producer. I thiuk I have
aid enough to ahow you wby I am ao
seriously opposed to the Uenry bill."
Grand Scenery of Shasta Route).
In toing over the famous "Shasta
Route" of the Southern Pacific Co, the
traveler ever find something new to
excite bia admiration and interest.
Starting at Portland, one traverse tb
whole length of tb Willamette Valley,
the gem of the Northwest. Mt. Hood,
Mt. Jefferson, and the Three Sisters and
other snow-capped peaki are kept in
sight for hours. The beautiful valleys
of the Umpqua and Rogue Rivers, with
their orchards of prunes, peaches, apples,
and other fruits are a delight in them
olve. The crossing of tbe great mount
ain barrier between Oregon and Calif
ornia reveal the grandest mountain sce
nery In the United States. The wonderful
turnings, twietlngs, and doubling! of the
railroad bring into view a grand array of
towering mountains and profound gorges
into which we gaze fioin dizxy heights,
forest clad mountain slopes stretchinj
up to the line of perpetual suow, and
the foamlag mountain streams dashing
fiercely down deep canyons, now and
then stopping for a short rest in some
quiet pool. After a day' enjoymont of
old Mt. Shasta, the finest peak on the
continent, we drop rapidly down the
canyon of the Sacramento to the broad
plains of the Sacramento Valley in Cal
ifornia, and thence through vineyards
and orchards to Sun Francisco.

Map of Rogue River.
Th Medford Mail has th following
account concerning ". F. Hunter's map
RoKue river: The gentleman was
detailed last fall to make a correct map
of Rogue river from its source to its
mouth. He started out upon hi trio in
small boat with on assistant and in
thirty-two days he had nssde the entire
trip. While en route bi assistant quit
and be wa compelled to pick np another
man for the remainder of tha trip.
hich change of help give Mr. Hunter
the distinction of having boon tha first
man who ever travened tha entire
length of the etroam. In making the
trip he took account of all rapida and
falls', crooks and bends, all obstruction
n the river channels' and aa well the to
pography of the country for some dis
tance on either side of the river. The
trip baa given to Oregon map maker
many facta regarding th Rogue river
which have heretofore been unknown,
as a good part of tha river had never be
fore been mapped. For instance, tbe
only perpendicular falls on tbe river are
near Mt. Reuben, were tb water falls
twelve feet; tbe narrowest place I ten
miles above tbe confluence ot Mule creek
whore the river I but fifteen feet wide;
at Horseshoe bend, which dues not show
on any map previously made, tba river
makes a loop and so sharp ia it that al
one point a stone can easily be thrown
across the lend around which the river
runs, while by the river it ia fully a mile.
The Davit's Stair which are on the old
pack trail, are indeed a curioua bit of
early day crude engineering. Her the
trail doubles upon itself in climbing the
mountain and so close are the trails,
one above the other, that a horseman
could easily step from the trail above
onto a horse on the trail bolow. It is
Ight in here where the rlvur narrow to
about thirty feet and passes between
mountain walls fully 3900 feet high. So
dark is it in this pasaage that during tbe
early forenoon a person in a boat on the
water can, by looking upwards, see
the stars as plainly as at midnight. All
ol these facta were noted by Mr. Hunter
upon the trip he made, and the fact that
nearly all of them are inside of the forty
miles of tbe unexplosed portion of the
river makes his map just that much mora
valuable. Another peculiar fact exists
regarding the river and that is that the
volume of water does not increase to
any perceptible degree from tha source
of the river until the Illinois river
emptiaa into it. Tbe evaporation seem
to take up the added supply from the
main river' tributries. Mr. Hunter
fonnd in the forty mile of unexplored
distance not more than half a doxen
people and these were minera. Further
down be found a great number of aettlers
all very nice people, who were anxiously
awaiting the coming of some enterprise
which would happen their way and bet
ter their conditions.

of which has been reported to result In

are to have heavier rails, new bridges,
filled treaties, ballasted track and new
depot buildings. This work has only
been begun, but all available forces will
le kept at it, and there is no indication
that this year will see lta finish. A

Oregon Stevte Convention, .
I am Indebted to Mis Lyman for tb
report of onr atate convention, being
unable to be present myself; so ah
shall speak: "It was a bright and
beautiful day, a wacam through Tongue
Point, and Astoria swept Into view. A
delegation of white ribboners met a) at
the depot, and w marched through the
street of the city, causing people to
oome to their shop-doors to aee us.
There were two llttl boy who acted as
pago. One very pretty little girl, three
year old, who wa with her mother at
every senion, and on young baby,
whose mother cam from the other side
of the Cascade Mountains, There were
gray-hairtd grandmother .and young
iris. Onr procession, i itaelf showed
the breadth of our work.
Th flower decorations in tb M. E.
church wr beautiful, while the pic
ture of France . WiUard. and oar own
Mrs. Kinney stood, draped with flags,
on the platform. The memorial services
war very impreasive, conducted by
Mr. Smith-French. Mr. Johnson con
ducted the seryic tor Mrs. E. J. Con
don, of Eugeu. She dated, among
other reminiscence, that Mi. Condon
was won to th white-ribbon cauie
through Misa Willard's personal in
fluence. Tha whole convention waa remarkable
for tbe spirit ol harmony that pervaded
all th session. We bad some interest
ing devotional exerciae, taken part In
of many delsgata. Hi evening

attended. Tbe first night w bad Mr.

(and I am lure, tb heart) ol many out

tbe most Interesting. Demonstration
night. One of the prettiest pictures was
that of the little three-year-old child
standing by an immense black New
fouudland dog and patting bis head, an
illustration of tba Mercy department
Another striking picture was children,
dressed in the costumes of many nations,
standing band In band, they themselves
being children of foreign parent. A
dear little tot ol tbe Mongolian race, In
Chinese dress, stood, holding tbe band
of an equally dear little American girl
smiling at eacb other as they stood.
then we all stood, with linked hands to
ling our good-bye hymn, "Blest be the
tie that binds." It was a most delight
ful four days of plesiant Intercourse
The koipltality of the people ol Astoria
was ol tha genuine kind, and wa shall
not soon lorget It all. Telegram of
greeting brought us near to the convca
lion of West Virginia. Tb unanimity
of the election ef officers was very
pleasant to those elected all our own
