The first eeri ouscasualty of the
ytar connected with the rush to
Alaska was the wrecking of the
steamer Corona at the mouth of
the Skcena river last week. The
accident was at once fortunate and
disastrous, as the entire comple
ment of 250 passengers escaped
though the fine steamer is a com
plete loss, together with outfits
and 800 tons of freight. No blame
. seems to attach to the condition
of the vessel, nor the efficiency of
her officers, but emphasis is offered
of the tremendous responsibilities
resting upon transportation com
panies and inspectors hi providing
and insisting upon seaworthy craft
and experienced navigators for the
' protection of passengers traveling
to Alaska.
Now it is stated that gold has
been dissovered in Labrador. It

Next we Bhall hear that the north

The compensations of nature are

The several delays, in the con
firmation of McKenna to be su
preme justice of the United States,
might have been for a purpose, but
if so they came to naught. Last

by the former.
, The Chicago inventor who pro
poses to turn antimony into gold
' has chosen his factory. He may
have feared from current reports of
new discoveries that there would be
an overproduction.
A Georgia editor describes a de
faulter who skipped out "as six
feet tall and $10,000 short."
Tho New York banks are again
transmitting gold by mail, and two
banks have shipped $500,000 each
in that way from San Francisco to
New York. It is not strange that
the banks should send gold through
the mail rather than by express so
long as there are partier who will
insure the rolls against loss, but
the strange thing is that anybody
should be willing" to insure. The
government, as is well known, as
sumes no liability, and one good
sized robber would break up this
business very quickly.
Immense demands for American
cotton in Japan indicate the
growth of that branch of manufact
ure in the orient. Steamer Braem
er carried 5000 bales, or approxi
mately 1250 tons from Tacoma
during the week, and all of the
six trans-Pacific lines are stated
to have offerings of 6otton which
will fill the entire available carry
ing capacity of these steamers for
several weeks to come. The ex
tremely low prices for the com
modity has brought an outlet in
proportion and ought to assist
materially in relieving the surplus
which has had such a telling effect
on the industry in America.
"The evils of using a legislature
for electing officials was never
more apparent than at the present
session," writes an Annapolis cor
respondent of the Baltimore Sun.
"One-fifth of the session is gone
and the house of delegates so far
has not paid the slightest attention
to the main purpose for which. it is
constituted, namely, legislation.
The minds of the members are bo
completely occupied by the elect
ion of a senator that they are in no
condition to attend to anything
Charles Vest, the Portland man
who conceived the idea of making
good money by taking frozen eggs
to the Klondike to sell, is not
dissatisfied with his venture.
Reaching Big Salmon river, where
Major Walsh was camping, the
entire stock was sold at a price
which brought the total value of
the product to $0,321.
Considering that it is a matter of
great difficulty to convict crimin
als, no matter how clear their
guilt, it may well be considered
whether the system of paroling
convicts should not be abolished.
It is alleged that during the last
two years one-half of the import
ant crimes committed in Chicago
have been the work of pardoned or
paroled convicts.
The Portland Tribune in hoist
ing Mr. Mitchell to the front has
its hands full, for it has the Cor-
bett faction in the republican party
to fight, and has also waged mild
war upon the democrats and pop
ulists. From all appearances the
Mitchellites are determined to have
a little hades to themselves. No
outsiders need apply for tickets.
The La Grande Gazette has been
purchased by Chas. T. McDaniel
and E. A. Clark. The name of the
paper has been changed to the
Grande Ronde Advocate. It will
be a republican paper.
The surgical world can now
point with pride to a man who has
both his stomach and vermiform
appendix eliminated. It would not
be a bad preparation for a trip to
tho Klondike.
It is said that Marcus Daly has
decided to become the next United
States senator from Montana. If
Mr. Daly is determined to break
into the senate like Hanna, he is
pretty sure to be successful.

The Douglas county people's
party have decided on union with
the reform forces.
The poBtoffice department has ruled
that alternative addreaaaa must not be
respected by postmasters and that after
March lat all matter bearing such ad
dress shall be nnmailable. For instance
an address to John Smith, followed by
a statement that if not called for to give

ot the law. Bach a letter if it cannot be
delivered to John Smith must be return
ed. After March lat it cannot be
mailed at all. Postmasters are instruct
ed to notify their patron a ot thia fact.

product of precious metals at 78,000 fine

gold product. The director has sent out
hia circulars and blanks to private re
fineries of tba country for information.
He says that no certain figures can be

that these will afford a close approxima

The Great Caricaturist Has Just Issued
an Interesting Book.
Homer O. Davenport, the caricaturist,
has just issued iu book form soma of the
caitoona which have been published in
the New Yoik papers during tbe past
year and which have brought him fame
and fortune. Mr. Davenport is an Ore
gon boy, and he received hia first exper
ience iu drawing here, or more correctly,
the fine, Italian hand which has traced
out so many bumoroua sketches, waa
first directed in thia city in the channels
in which it ought to move. Mr. Daven
port never bad to take lessons in draw
ing Ho was born that way. In other
words, he took X) drawing just as natur
ally as an oyster takes to soup
Portland newspapermen encouraged
the talent and made him cultivate it, or
Mr. Davenport might now be making a
failure in nonae other and less congenial
vocation. Some people have tbe faculty
of expressing themselves id concise and
graphic sentences. Mr. Davenport uses
pictures. His pictures talk for him and
they have a quaint and unmistakable
language of their own which, during the
recent political campaign, had a more
convincing eflect than the moot powerful
arguments of the most eloquent editorial
writers. Mr. Davenport puts a lile and
expression into his pictures which make
them fairly breathe.
Drawine pictures is a pastime for Mr.
Davenpoit, and thia gift of being able to
amuse himself with hia pen enables him
to draw a bigger salary from the New
York Journal than the governora of
many states get. And tho business ia
one which the gentleman baa the satis
faction of knowing is not in danger of
sharp and unhealthy competition. There
aro few rivals in the Celd. That is, there
are tew rivals who can draw pictures and
give them life like Mr, Davenport dose.
Tbe art is a secret, a cunning of the
band, and there is no danger that it will
ever be acquired by tbe many.
Mr. Davenport is a eon of Hon T. W.
Davenport, an ex-member of the legisla
ture from Marion county. The elder Mr,
Davenport ia a resident of Silverton and
he ia one of the tnoBt prominent political
spirits of tbe county which he lepre

A Terrible Death!
The Albia (Iowa) Union says: Mrs.
aggie Woods died Saturday afternoon
at ber borne in Webster City. She waa
a believer in faith cure and although .her
family and relatives objected, ahe waa
surrounded nntil the last by members
of the society, who denied her phy
sicians or medicine. She was imbued with
tbe idea that Satan- was ia her body and
would not allow her to get well, and
died a horribla death, still believing
the words ot those sitting by her bed
side that she must banish him or die.
Just before ahe lost consciousness ahe
eaid: Ia thia death T Go awav devil."
Her aged mother, standing bv her side.
said to the faith cures: "You have
made her think the devil is in her, now
drive it out." But tbe scientists were
powerless, and she died believing ahe
waa possessed with an evil spirit.
