The report of Dr. Johnson on the re
sult of the chemical analvsis of the vis
cera removed from the body of John
jiurun at weavervuie, Lai., is to tne ef
fect that "arsenic was not a factor in
causing death." The Coroner's jury was
not satisfied with the report, and gave
the tollowmg peculiar verdict : "That
the cause was in our opinion not occa
sioned from natural causes, and there
fore we are unable to determine and
from the evidence find the cause of his
death." The Coroner deems the report
ot tne aoctor incomplete, and is not sat-
jonea wun it.
The Oregon (Mo.) Democrat says:
" Visitors to the World's Fair are dis
posed to speak enthusiastically of the
exhibition made by the young and rising
State of Oregon, notwithstanding the
mall sum of money her managers had
at their aispensation. it Missouri had
used her appropriation as judiciously,
what a showing we could have made,'
is a common remark. But we of this
comer are not jealous of the glorious
region from which our county-seat drew
its name on account of the old-time in
timacies between our pioneers and emi
grants and visitors to and from the Mis
souri river and Willamette country. In
'SO and the early '40s our point was a great
place for the pioneers to rest and get
their teams shod oxen mostly. How
many, whose descendants are prominent
people of Oregon State, rested here for a
brief space till ' grass was ready,' pre
paratory to their long, weary tramp
across the plains, over the mountains
and plateaus to that then mystic land,
' where rolls the Oregon and hears no
sound save its own dashings !' "
Representatives of Italian exhibitors
at the Chicago Fair called on Director
General de Young of the Midwinter Ex
position at San Francisco, and asked for
15,000 square feet of space in the me
chanical and fine arte building, which is
more than it will lie possible to give
them in that structure. They may agree
to take 12,000 feet of space and have
their exhibits divided between three of
the buildings. It is the opinion of the
Italian Commissioners that the foreign
exhibitors at Chicago will all want a
large amount of space, and they don't
think the plans for the fair buildings are
on a scale large enough. The Director
General said that, if the financial condi
tion were somewhat better, he would en
large the buildings, but under the cir
cumstances he did not think it would be
practicable. Space at the fair will be of
two kinds within and outide of the
buildings. The Ilawaiians,)Chinese and
Japanese have located space outside, and
will construct their own buildings. Re-

A great many bills have been filed in
the House. A great majority are bilis
that have already found a place on the
calendars of the previous Congress, such
ns bills to repeal the Federal election
law; to repay to Suites the cotton tax;
to establish a uniform system of bank
ruptcy: to increase the facilities for
prosecuting war claims of various kinds.
The original bills chiefly grow out of the
existing financial conditions. Several
are to repeal the 10 per cent tax on State
bank circulation and two to establish an
income tax. One by Richardson (Hum.)
of Tennessee is radical in its provisions,
He proposes a tax of 2 per cent on $.'!,
0110 to $5,000, 5 per cent on $5,0110 to $10,

per cent on $20,000 to $30,000, 20 nor cent
on $30,00(1 to $50,000, 30 per cent on $50,
000 to $100,000, 40 por cent on all over
$100,000. A national bank bill has been
prepared by Hurter (Hem.) of Ohio, un
der the provisions of which a national
bank may issue circulating bonds to se
cure it, and the bonds now on deposit
with the Treasurer to secure circulation
may be withdrawn, the United States to
take the first lien on the assets of any
failed national bank to secure its guar
antee of the bank's circulation, ami in
case the assets are not sufficient to re
imburse thogovornment the Comptroller
ol the Currency is to make an assess
ment upon all the national banks of the
State in which the derelict bank is lo
cated, divided pro rata according to the
capital and surplus, to make up the de
ficiency. Besides the 75 per cent ol the
circulation provided for as stated, the
banks may issue an amount equal to 50
per cent of their capital and surplus to
be known as emergency circulation, se
cured by United States bonds, and to
pay a tax of 0 per cent until retired.
Among the other bills introduced are:
To provide (or the admission of Arizona;
to enable the people of New Moxico,
utan, Arizona aim Oklahoma to form a
constitution and State government and
lie admitt'Hl into the Union.
