TWO DEMOCRATS GO IN.
Bilyeu and Xee In the Mitchell Joint
Lark Bilyeu, Democrat, of Lane, oc
cupied hia . seat in the house a half
hour before the Mitchell joint assem
bly which met at noon . Monday. Bil
yeu -was writing at hie desk. It had
been rumored around the capitol dur
ing the morning that it was the pur
,; pose of the Democrats to enter the joint
assembly, and Bilyeu's presence ap
peared to confirm the report As the
hand of the clock moved slowly toward
12, the member from Lane continued
. composedly to dip his pen in" the ink
and seemed to be oblivious to surround
ings and wholly taken up with the
work in which he was engaged.
. At noon, Chairman Brownell monnt-
.-, ed the Speaker's rostrum, and, calling
to order, directed the clerk to call the
roll. The senators, the same as last
Friday, answered to their names. As
the olerk was concluding the senate
call, Vaughan, the aged representative
from Lane, who has been quite sick,
appeared in the lobby, supported by
". his wife. He looked pale and very
ill,, but he walked slowly to his seat.
Just about the same time, Lee, Demo
crat, of Polk, likewise appeared at his
Bilyeu's name is third on the house
roll. When it was called, he arose,
ind, addressing the chairman, said:
'':. "This is the first time I have made
my appearance here in the joint assem
bly. , I am here for the purpose of as
sisting to complete the organization of
the legislature. 'I want it distinctly
understood that I am not here in any
manner whatever to aid in the recogni
tion of the Benson house. I have many
-.times stated my position on that sub
ject, and I do not believe that its or
ganization is legal.
"I have been accused of aiding and
abetting in holding-up the legislature.
I am here to disabuse the mind of any
' one that I occupy that attitude. I in
form you that if the legislature is not
organized, and at once, 1 . wasn my
hands of ' the whole business. . I am
tired walking the streets of Salem wait
. ing for the majority of this legislature
. to get together and do its duty.
"The people Who elected me know I
am not a fool; or at least they believe
so; else they would not have' sent me
here. They want me to help organize
this ' legislature on a proper basis; and
I am here for that purpose. .
"I wa"ht to say that many questions
have been raised in the senate and else'
where relative to the permanent organ-
ization that, are not germane to the sub-
. jeot. I take it that the temporary or
ganization of the house is sufficient for
the purpose of this convention. I have
all along maintained that the tern
porary organization is the only consti
tutional organization, and that is where
I stand now. The members of this
. body, which is made up of members of
the leigslature, are not called upon to
pass upon that question. The state
constitution has nothing to do with this1
joint convention. ' I believe the deci-
sions of the United States senate are a
sufficient guide for the actions of this
body. When a majority of members of
j the legislature . declare their choice for
United States senator, no power in the
universe can set it aside.
"We have the power here to deter
mine this question of organization. I
ask the Republicans to come forward
and organize. After this I wash my
hands of the whole proposition. I am
present." , '
... The call then proceeded. Lee an
swered to his name, but when Merrill
of Columbia was reached there was no
response.: Twenty-nine members oi
the house were found to be present, and
ten from the senate thirty-nine in
, all, or seven short of a majority.
. ' Chairman Brownell then stated that
he had received word that ' Merrill
,would not be up till the 2:20 " train.
He suggested that a recess till 7:30 in
the evening be taken. This was don? .
There was no change when the con
vention met at night. Bilyeu ' and
Lee, Democrats, were in their places,
and Merrill, Republican, arrived in tha
- afternoon and was also present. Chair
man Brownell waited till 7:38 before
he called to order. When the name of
Vaughan of Lane was reached, Johnson
of Linn asked that he be excused on ac-
, count of illness. Thirty-nine were
present. The conevntion adjourned
immediately following the roll call.
When the senate recohevned on Mon
day, McClung ' moved to reconsider
the vote of last Friday, ordering the
bill fixing the legal rate of interest at 6,
per cent to third reading. This was
done, and, on motion of McClung, the
bill was recommitted to the committee
on revision of laws. The following
new bills were introduced: '
By Duf ur, by request, enabling
school districts to borrow money for a
short time without issuing bonds;'
King, regulating the employment of
legislative clerical aid; Johnson, fixing
:, rates of express companies; King, to
prevent fraud in sales of mines; Daly,
by request, accepting the terms of the
aot of congress providing for the re
clamation of arid lands; Johnson, fix
: ing telegraph rates. A number of bills
were read the second time and referred.
The Benson House.
The Benson house met at 2:30 Monday,-and
after reading two unimport
ant bills, adjourned.
The Davis House.
The Davis house met Monday and
Immediately adjourned. "'.
Firecrackers Caused It.
Victoria, B. C, Feb. 11. A
named Albert Auld was killed through
' the shying of a coal cart horse at fire
crackers in Chinatown' this evening.
The load was overturned, and crushed
Auld's skulL Mayor Bedfern stopped
tha firing of crackers in the street.
JOINT ASSEMBLY FAILED.
The Necessary Forty-Six Votes Could
Mot Be Mustered.
The joint assembly of the Oregon
legislature for the purpose of electing a
United States senator at noon Wednes
day came to naught. The Mitchell
forces could only get forty members to
enter it. Seeing that it would be im
possible to secure forty-six, the re
quired number, a recess was taken un
til 7:30 in the evening, but the night
session developed no change.
Senator Beed tried to get a state
ment from Chairman Brownell as to
which house was participating in the
assembly. Brownell would not say
and Beed walked out of the room, leav
ing only thirty-nine ; present. Of the
Benson house Lake was absent.
The sensation of the convention was
the aotion of Senator Hasletine, who
was considered one of Mitchell's warm
est supporters. Hasletine was present
when the roll was called. He did not
answer to his name, and the chair
asked him if he wished to be recorded
as present. Haseltine said:
"Mr. President, there is no question
in my mind as to the illegality of the
vote yesterday, and I therefore decline
to oome in at present."
Han tint ton Withdraw
Representative Huntington, of Was
co, on Thursday, gave notice that he
would withdraw from further participa
tion. This is the first defection, and
now leaves but thirty-eight members
willing to elect a United States senator
by means of a joint assembly. After
the roll-call Huntington arose and said
he'desired to explain his position. He
thought the Benson house was legally
organized, and accordingly he had
voted last Tuesday for a United States
senator. He considered it his duty to do
so. The joint assembly had now mefe
for the third time, the roll had been
called and no annoucement of the result
had been made from the chair. He
had voted for a senator on Tuesday, but
his candidate was not that of the bal
ance of the organization. This conven
tion was being held in the interest of a
In view Of the situation he felt it his
duty to withdraw. He did not approve
of the methods used in preventing the
organization of the house or delaying
the vote on senator.

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Downing;, Hopkins Company' Review
The week closes on firmer wheat mar-
kets,' based primarily on a decided feel
ing that the liquidation of long wheat
had run its course for the present. That
this liquidation has been completed is
not to be doubted, and legitimate laws
will once more control the market
Foreigners have been liberal buyers of
wheat in all positions in our market
during the decline. Expert sales are
large both for prompt and deferred ship
ment The interor milling demand
has been rather disappointing but
shows sdme sign of improvement. The
point to be considered as most worthy
of attention when considering the
price of wheat is, that the conditions
of supply and demand which caused the
advance to over 85o still exist with even
increased force. Such being the case,
wheat should prove a profitable pur
chase after this severe break, due to
speculative stampede entirely unwar
ranted by facts. One peculiarity in
the situation has been the Liverpool
market. When Chicago closed weak,
Liverpool would come from to Id
higher the next morning, . and vice
versa when we closed strong, conse
quently the people who have .been in
the habit of taking their cue from the
action of foreign markets, have been
sadly at' sea. May wheat at Chicago
closed on Saturday at 77c, a gain of 4o
from the lowest point reached during
the late decline, and 1 c better than
the closing price a weak ago. . '
In the corn market prices are nearly
unchanged from what they were a
week ago. It is a difficult task to say
anything new of corn that could pos
sibly be of interest to the trade. Ev
eryone' knows about, the big crop of
1896, and how unwieldly an output
it was, and how hard it is to lift the
price. It will take something artificial
to do it, and that is not even a proba
bility, for the reason that legitimate
arguments for present prices are found
in such superabundance as to render
any attempt at manipulation an im

From Cuba to Kingsburg,
RAISIN CULTURE IN FRESNO
What Brought Sueeess Out of Failure
to Hon. Z. T. Maxwell.
Prom the Republican, Fresno, Cal.
The Hon. Z. T. Maxwell, in 1887,
having just finished a term in the Mis
souri legislature, was compelled by ill
health to seek, change of olimate, and
after traveling for some montlis on the
Pacific slope, . settled in Kingsburg,
Fresno county,' California, and engaged
in raisin culture. i
The change from Cuba, Mo., Mr.
Maxwell's old home, to the balmy air
of Kingsburg, for a time seemed to
benefit the invalid, and, for a while, in
addition to his labors ' on the raisin
farm, he began to take a prominent
part in the county politics, and held
several offices of trust in his new state.
But ill health was the drawback which
prevented him from arriving at the
highest political honors, ancl his active
mind chafed nnder the restraint of an
impaired constitution, so that instead
of improving he became worse. These
facts concerning Mr. Maxwell's health
were so well known among the people
of Fresno county, that when he lately
reappeared on the busy scenes in ap
parent health, he was warmly congratu
lated by his numerous acquaintances,
and among others the writer of this ar-1 th saP of the "wartwort," a plant of
tide. ; he spurge family, as a possible cure for

"You have asked me for more than I
could describe. Sometimes I have
looked over an alphabetical index oi
diseases, and fancied I had them all,
but general debility, weakness, insom
nia, indigestion, constipation, partial
atrophy of muscles, headaches, pain in
the back and limbs, and general
wretchedness was my lot
"My horizon was contracting, and I
supposed that the circle of my vision
would never again have anything but
my bed for a center, for on top of my
previous ill health, in 1896, I caught
la grippe, which brought me so low
that I was very nigh the grim portal. ,
"New Year's day I was despondent
and unhappy, not knowing there was
such good fortune in store for me, for I
had hardly ambition to read the news
paper that was brought me, and threw
it on the bed in disgust. As I did so
my eye caught the announcement of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple, and half in anger and half in con
tempt I read what it said and again
threw the paper down." But I could
not get this announcement cf Pink
Pills out of my head, and at last I de
termined to try them, and I did so. I
began to use the pills, following direc
tions carefully, and by the time I had
taken the first box my appetite had re
turned, and I was so invigorated that
it almost seemed as if I were renewing
my youth. I kept on taking the Pink
Pills until I was thoroughly recovered,
and now can do more work than for
twenty yeaqi before.- '; -

saved me much expense in doctors'

believed favorable legislation will be
secured. The work will be pushed vig

much by the good roads congress to
