In Keswick, Cal., there was an ex

road, near Latimer, la. Iron rails
were laid on the track on the upper end
of a curve, where the obstruction could
not be seen by the engineer. An extra
freight train ahead of the regular pas
senger train ran into the obstruction,
without damage. Robbery was the
evident motive of tho wreckers.
Fiank H. Cheeseman, of South Berk

' Senate
Third day. The senate, by the de
cisive vote of 85 to 21, adopted a mo
tion to take up the Dingley tariff bill.
Unexpected and surprising as this ac
tion was, it did not have the signifi
cance whioh the vote itself appears to
convey. Immediately following it,
Aldrich of Rhode Island, one of the
Republican' members ' of the finance
committee, moved to reoommit the bill
to the committee, and this motion was
pending when, at 2 o'clock, the morn
ing hour expired, and the matter lapsed
as though no vote bad been taken. Nei
ther the bill nor the motion to recom
mit will enjoy any privilege or prece
dence as the result of the action today.
Early in the day three sets of vigorous
resolutions for Cuban independence
furnished an interesting feature. They
came from Cameron of Pennsylvania,
Mills of Texas, and Call of Florida,
and while differing in terms, breathed
the same spirit of recognition by the
United States of Cuban independence.
Fourth day The senate got into the
regular channel of business today, tak
ing up the immigration bill and partly
perfecting it, and also hearing the first
of the speeches on Cuba, these of Cul
lom and Call. The immigration bill
was not passed upon up to the time of
adjoprnment, but the senate agreed to
Vla gene;all known a8 the Lodga
roill, as a, substitute to the house meas
ure. Trie substitute requires that all
immigrants., over the age of 14 years
shall be able to read and write their
native language and shall be required
to read and write in the presence of an
United States offioial oertain lines of
the United States constitution.
Fifth day Call renewed attention
to the Cuban question by three resolu
tions, one being a bitter denunciation
of the manner in whioh it is alleged
General Antonio Maoeo bad been killed,
while under a flag of truce. Other
resolutions by Call requested . the presi
dent to demand the release of United
States prisoners at the Spanish penal
settlement on the island of Ceuta, and
also asked the secretary of state for a
list of Amerioans held in Spanish pris
ons. The three resolutions went to the
committee on foreign . relations. ' Sev
eral spirited political oolloqui s occur
red on the floor during the day.
Allen's speech, protesting against in
temperate criticisms of populism in Ne
braska, ' led to a passage at arms be
tween him and Hoar, in wihch the
Massachusetts senator deolared it was
a novel departure for senators to appear
as representatives of political parties,
instead of representatives of their
states. . In the course of Allen's re
marks, he paid a glowing tribute to
William J. Bryan, as the foremost
citizen of Nebraska, and the greatest
orator since the days of Webster and
Third day. The house held a three
hour session and passed a dozen bills of
minor importance. Among them were
the following: To extend five years
the time in which the university of
Utah shall occupy the lands granted
it; to authorize the use of the aban
doned Fort Bidwell military reserva
tion in California, as a training school
for Indians; to provide for the location
and purohase of public lnds for reser
voir sites in Montana, South Dakota
and Wyoming; authorizing Flagstaff,
Ariz., to issue bonds for the construc
tion of a water system. The Shafoith
bill, for the protection of forest reser
vations from fire, was defeated.
Fourth day Pending the preparation
of the next appropriation bill, the house
again today devoted its time to the con
sideration of bills on the calendai, but
only two were passed during the four
hours session. One of them was a bill
to protect musical compositions under
the oopyright law. The other measure
made a law was to prohibit the sale of
liquor in the oapitol building. A bill
advocated by the delegates from the ter
ritories, to modify the law forbidding
the alien ownership of lands in the ter
ritories so as to give them the right to
acquire under mortgage and to hold for
ten years, real property, was defeated.
Fifth day Beyond agreeing to a two
weeks' holiday recess, begiouing D
cember 23, the proceedings in the house
today were alomst entirely devoid of
public interest '.. Most of the day was
spent in a struggle over the bill of
Morse of Massachusetts, to n nder the
laws relating to the sale of iutoxioat
ing liquors in the Dinriuc of Oolubinia
more stringent. The opposition was
inciaed to filibuster against the meas
ure, but it was finally passed. " Sev
eral minor relief bills were passed
The roported assassination of Maceo,
the Cuban patriot, and its effect on the
attitude of the country toward the
revolutionists, was almost the sole
topic of conversation on the floor before
the house met, and there was a general
expectation thHt some radically sensa
tional resolut'ons would be introduced.
No resolutions, however, were offered

Good Mew for Several Hundred Set
tler! In Washington Connty Dls
puted Land Contains 800,000 Acres.
Washington, Deo. 16. Chief Justice
Fuller announced today the opinion of
the supreme court in the case of the
United States vs. tha Oregon & Cali
fornia and Oregon ' Central 'railway
'oompanies, involving titles to valuable
lands near Portland, Or.', : reversing
the deoision of the cirouit court of ap
peals for the ninth circuit. Chief Jus
tioe Fuller did not give the court's rea
sons for the conclusions reaohed.
The oourt announced a reoess for the
holidays from Monday until the first
Monday in January.
(This is a 'final deoision in what is
generally known as the quadrant case,
whioh involves the title to some 200,
000 aores of land in Washington coun
ty, and the news will be a weloome
Christmas gift t3 the settlers on the
land, ' who number nearly 500, and
Wkio, for several years past, have been
on the anxious seat in regard to their
The land in question, as has. been ex
plained many times, consists of a
quadrant-shaped tract having a radios
of ten miles, situated adjacent to the
point' above the railroad whioh was
started to run from Portland to As
toria, stopped, and turned at a right
angle, and ran south to MoMinnville.
The government claimed that there
were two roads to whioh grants were
given, the Portland & Astoria road,
and the one running south from near
Hillsboro to MoMinnville, while the
railroad company claimed that the
whole was one continuous road, and
they were entitled to a grant ten miles
in width along the whole line. When
the grant on the line from Hillsboro to
Astoria lapsed, many settlers, consider
ing this quadrant tract government
land, took up homesteads and pre-emption
claims from the government.
Many who bought claims from the rail
road oompany quit paying them and
entered their claims under the law as
publio lands, and some have kept on
paying the railroad company till this
time. The government finally brought
suit in the court here to quiet the title
to these lands, and the case was de
cided in favor of the government by
Judge Bellinger some three years ago.
The company appealed the oase to the
oirouit oourt of appeals, and it reversed
Judge Bellinger. The government then
appealed to the supreme court of the
United States, whioh has now reversed
the court of appeals, and sustained
Judge Bellinger.
The settlers who have taken their
olaims under the government will be
rejoiced at this deoision. Those who
have been paying the railroad company
will probably endeavor to secure the
return of their money, and there will
be interminable litigation over the
matter. '
This is the first oase deoided by
Judge Bellinger whioh has gone up to
the supreme oourt of the United States,
and it will be a souroe of gratification
to him, as well as to Mr. J. M. Gearin,
who aoted as speoial oounsel for the
government in the oase, to learn that
his opinion has been sustained.) '
Radical Improvement Made in the Pos
tal System.
; Washington, Deo. 16. Postmaster
General Wilson has issued an order ex
tending the house-to-house collection
and delivery letter system so as to pro
vide for the sale of postage and speo-ial-delivery
stampB through orders to
letter-carriers on slips contained in a
unique official stamp-selling envelope
to be furnished by the Postal Improve
ment Company. The order provides
for one of the most radical improve
ments vet made in the postal system.
It will be tried in Washington at once,
and, it found practicable, extended
generally. It affords the conduct of
one's business with the postoffice at
home, at least so far as ordinary trans
actions are concerned, and it is expeot
ed to largely inorease stamp sales as
soon as the system beoomes general.
The house-to-house collection of mail
by means of ingeniously contrived
boxes has already been adopted and ex
tended to twenty-five free delivery

were recommended. Special greet
ings were extended to Delegates Samuel
Woods and John Mallinson, of England,
and Louis Vigoroux, of Farnce. Presi
dnet Gompers, in responding to the ad
dress of ' weloome, referred to the at

it was merely a federation, and not' a
more compact union. He showed how
the fullest scope was given to indvidual

appealed for continued efforts for the
cultivation of publio opinion as well as
favorable legislation and mot earnest

Ukiah, CaC Dao. 16. While hunt
ing on Pine Ridge, ten miles from
here, Charles Ryan found the skeleton
of a man seated astride a branoh of a
tree, sixty feet from the ground. One
of the leg bones had fallen off, and the
skeleton, whioh was wedged between a
limb and the trunk of a fir tree, had
apparently been there for many years.
The discovery may solve the mysteri
ous disappearance of Andrew Nobrick,
a pioneer settler, who left his cabin
seventeen years ago, and was never
seen again. . Ryan believes that the
skeleton is that of a man either driven
to the tree for . refuge from wild
animals, or, being lost in the woods,
climbed the tree for observation and
fell, lodging in the crotch of the tree,
from which he could not extricate him
A Negro Bootblack, Crazed With Love,
Runs Amuck. .:
' Waoo.Tex., Deo. 16. Edward Brooks,
a oolord bootblack, aged 17, ran amuck
with a revolver in hs hands, and shot
five persons, one fatally. He started
on the east side of the city by shooting
two colored men, inflicting ( flesh
wounds. Leaving them be tried to
shoot a woman, but the pistol failed to
work. . He then took a street car and
went to the Baptist tabernacle, where
be shot two more colored men, one in
the leg, the other in the arm.
Going a mile further, where a dance
given by colored people,' was in pro
gress, and shot another man, killing
him instantly. The man killed was
Alexander Willis.
Shortly after he shot Willis he was
captured by the police, just as he was
in the act of shooting another man.
The theory is that Brooks was crazed
by love. of a girl who did not reoipro
oate his passion. .
The Governor Expresses His Views on
.' the Cuban Question. ;
New York, Deo. 16. Governor Mor
ton, aooording to a statement published
in the Evening World, sent a telegram
to President Cleveland yesterday in re
lation to the critioal condition of Cuban
affairs and the assassination of General
Maoeo in particular. The message con
tained the novel suggestion that Presi
dent Cleveland invite President-elect
McKinley to Washington to disouss
the most feasible plan, to be followed
by the president concerning the atti
tude of the United States toward Cuba
during the remainder of Cleveland's
term. . ,
The World artiole says: y
"It is not probable that Governor
Morton would have proffered his sug
gestion unless he thought it would be
accepted by President-elect MoKinley;
indeed, it is said the governor has had
some correspondence with the president-elect
on this subject"

Maeeo Was Murdered Under

Decoyed Into a Trap by Spaniards,
Aided by a Traitor, and Then Shot
Down In Cold Blood by Clrujeda.
Jacksonville, Fla., Deo. 15. Justo
Carillo, a well-known Cuban of this
oity, brother of the Cuban general,
Carrillo, has reoeived . the following
letter from a trustworthy souroe in Ha
vana concerning the reports of - the
death of Antonio Maoeo, and showing
he was killed by treaohery:
. "Havana, , Deo. 12 Dear Friend
Justo: Our brave general, . Antonio
Maoeo, and the greater part of his staff
have been murdered by the Spaniards,
the Spanish major, Cirujeda, acting
the part of assassin, with Dr. Maximo
Zertuoha as an assistant in the horrible
drama. '
"Convinced that, notwithstanding
bis enormous army, he could do noth
ing against our gallant leader, who
had so repeatedly defeated the Spanish
generals in Pinar del Rio, Weyler oon
oeived the idea of appeasing his beastly
instincts by oold-blooded murder, and
making the best of the seoret relations
between Dr. Zertuoha and the Marquis
Ahumada, he planned with the latter
his hellish scheme. j -'
"Weyler took the field, and in his
absenoe Ahumada proposed through
Zertuoha a conference with Maceo, to
take place at a certain point in the
prnvinoe of Havana, with the. view of
arranging plans for the cessation of
hostilities.'' The basis was to be Cuba's
independence, and a monetary indem
nity to .Spain; together with oertain
advantages that should be agreed upon
for Spanish commerce and Spanish
oapital invested there.
"To oarry out the plan, agreement
was that orders should be given to the
detachments of troops stationed on the
trocha on the seotion between Mariel
and Guars jay, to allow Maceo, with
his staff, to pass the military line un
molested. Time was required to ma
ture these arrangements, and to give
them all the appearanoe of truth, Ahu
mada feigned that before acting he
must make them known to Weyler for
previous approval.
"This explains Weyler's sudden ar
rival in Havana and his prompt de
parture for Pinar del Rio. The condi
tions and place of meeting having been
agreed upon, Maceo orossed the trocha,
over the road to Guanajay, without be
ing molested by the forts, but as soon
as he arrived at the plaoe deoided upon,
he and his party were greeted by a tre
mendous volley from the troops under
Major Cirujeda, who lay conveniently
in ambush.
; "Most of the officers of his staff fell
with General Maceo. ' Zertuoha is
live, beoause he was aware of the
scheme and remained In the rear.
"The Spaniards know where the
bodies are, but are bent on feigning Ig
norance to blot out the vestiges of the
"Havana and all Spain are rejoicing
beoause in their stupidity they hope the
war may end with the death of this
leader. Far from it. The spirit of
the ' Cubans has grown more ardent,
and today they are resolved to make
every sacrifice before surrendering their
arms to their relentless tyrants. In
this very province of Havana, in whioh
our army is least and : has the least
means of defense, the Cubans are
operating with greater and . greater
sagacity and aotivity, and not a day
passes that we 'do not hear in this oity
the firing on Guanabaooa.
, "The Spaniards may treacherously
murder some of our patriots, but no
earthly power can annihilate the spirit
of liberty flowing now as ever over the
Cuban people. "
Palma Confirms It.
New York, Deo. 15. Estrada Pal
ma made the following statement: "I
received a telegram from my agents in
Jacksonville, affirming the news that
General Maceo and staff came in oon
fliot with Ahumada, Weyler's lieuten
ant, and were murdered. Dr. Zertuoha
was present The news does not sur
prise me, because the first reports of
General Maceo' s death were so contra
dictory that I saw mystery in them. I
was inolined to bleieve the news was
false, but that if General Maoeo had
really been killed it was through the
assassin's knife. It seems now he has
been murdered. " 1

Downing, Hopkins A Co.'s Review of
' Trade. ; .-
Portland, Or., Deo. 15. 'The for
eign news regarding the wbeat sit
uation has been uniformly bullish
during the week past. Seeding in
Franoe and Central Europe has been
stopped by cold weather, and the aore
age planted will show a decrease com
pared with last year. The reduotion
in French aoreage is estimated at ten
per cent. Advices from the Argentine
report crop prospects worse, and esti
mate their exportable surplus as smaller ,
than last year's. Australian require
ments for American wheat during 1897
are estimated at . 100,000 tons, or 8,
780,000 bushels. The news from In
dia is rather more favorable, but the
real scarcity there will not be felt until
next year. The position in America is
even stronger than in Europe. Two
small crops in succession have followed
a large reduotion in surplus yields
from previous crops. The amount oi
wheat still in first hands is estimated
at 65,000,000 bushels less, than in De-'
oember last year. The quality of much
of the winter wheat remaining is too
poor for -milling purposes. The de
mand from interior millers for wheat
from centers of accumulation continues
brisk, and their advices indicate that
supplies of red winter wheat for mill -ing
are praotically exhausted. The
speculative conditions have changed
considerably during the week.' Longs
have been eager to secure profits. The
volume of trade has fallen off materi
ally and the market has laoked specu
lative support The result was a de
cline to 18o for May wheat on Thurs
day, whioh was' followed, however, by
a rally on Saturday to 80 7-8o, making
the loss from a week ago a trifle more
than one cent. The looal sentiment is
bearish, temporarily, and with the ap
proaching holidays and laok of general
trade values may sink a little lower.
We regard conditions as warranting
higher values next year, and on any
further decline in prices consider wheat
to be a safe and profitable purohase.
During the last week the corn mar
ket ruled weak in tone, prices showing
a decline of about o per bushel.
Liquidation by longs, cold, dry weather
thorughout the West, and a consequent
inorease in offerings by country ship
pers all contributed to the heaviness.
In order to effect sales, holders were
obliged to make saorifioes. Sentiment
oontinues conservatively ' bearish in
view of the large supplies at points of
accumulation and lack of speculation.
The oats market showed the effect of
liquidation, sales prioes deolining lo,
closing with a slight improvement
This cereal has many friends, as the de
mand for cash is good, while supplies
are not overburdensome.
Provisions have been fairly aotive
during the past week on the hog esti- .
mates. ' We are of the opinion that the
consumption of the product will be
large the ooming year, and advise pur
chases of May produot on breaks.
Prioes are low, the trade selling pro
duot relatively cheaper than the live
hog; therefore do not believe there is
any profit to be made in selling on the
low basis of a 8o hog.
Mantohurla Ceded to the Czar China's
Treaty Made Public
London. Deo. 15. The text of the
Russian-Chinese treaty, reproduced
here from the North China Daily .
News, has aroused considerable discus
sion on all sides, and it is regarded as
a matter of the greatest importance.
Some of the newspapers refuse to be
lieve it authentio, as it would be such
a viotory for Russian diplomaoy. The '
Speotator says today, however, it be-'
lieves it to be exact, and adds:
"No forger would have tried so
elaborately to protect the pride of
China. While securing every Russian
objeot, nothing is ceded openly. Rus
sia is permitted to run a railway to
Eiirin, and is expressly authorized to
keep all the troops she pleases to pro
teot the Mantohurian stations,, and she
is also to fortify Port Arthur for China.
"No glass is required to interpret
phrases like these, whioh completely
invest Russia with military control of
Mantohurla and the Liao Tung penin
sula." ' ;.:
Continuing, the Speotator says it
thinks the arrangement, threatens
Japan more than Great Britain, "whioh
can resist when her commercial rights
are threatened. "
Killed by a Woman.
Indianapolis, Deo. 15. Mrs. '"race
Dolan, a oomely white woman, about
24 years old, shot and killed Henry
Jackson, a young negro porter em
ployed at the New York store, at her
home, on Liberty street
Her husabnd was away from home,
and Emma Ott, a young friend, was
staying , with her. . The negro, whom
they had never seen before, tried to
climb into 'the window, but Mrs.
Dolan fought hjm off with a curtain
pole. He returned, but by this time
she had got a revolver and frightened
him off with a threat to shoot ,
When they thought he had gone the
women ran out to give the alarm, but
found him rushing baok towards the

into the house and Mrs. Dolan pulled
out the revolver and fired three tinr
killing him. She was plaoed und'
