Robbery in Norths Salem.
W. H. Joy Brutally Assaulted
Robbed Last Evening.
Early Tuesday evening TV. II. Joy
was brutally assaulted and robbed at
his home adjoining the Labor Ex
change warehouse on North Front
street by three maskcdvuSen. The
safe and till of the Labor Exchange
were both rilled of their contents
amounting to a few dollars, tho exact
amount of which could not be ascer
tained from Mr. Joy this morning.
Thcro Is no clew on wnlch the otllcers
ratty work but Mr. Joy has, his own
suspicions as to the perpetrators,
which he thinks are well founded.
Mr. Joy was seen this morulngat his
home In Riverside addition to Salem.
He was feeling quite poorly from his
experience of last evening. Mr. Joy's
back is covered with bruises while his
head Is also quite sore having pome in
contact with the butt end of a revol
ver. 'The principal wound Mr. Joy re
ceived was in the left hand, a knife
having been thrust almost through
that member at a point between the
thumb and Index finger. Mr. Joy
made.the following statement regard
ing his unpleasant experience of last
evening with three bold highwaymen:
"I returned from Salem about 7
o'clock and shortly therea'fycr had
occasion to visit the back yard.
While In the barn I imagined I heard
steps without, but arrived at the con
elusion that it was the cow who had
propably wandered In the vicinity of
the barn. Satisfying myself with this
conclusion I gave the matter no
further thought. I then prepared to
return to the house. As I stepped
from the door I was roughly seized by
two large men who poked two pistols
In ray face and ordered me to remain
quiet. Instead I yelled for lielp when
one of them thursta huge knife Into
my left hand, tho second ono -beating
me over the head with a revolver. I
observed a third party standing near
the rpar of my residence whom I
suppose was standing on watch. I
could not distinguish the highway
men since they had carefully con
cealed their identity. Each wore
over his head and ohost, a grain sack,
with armholesand openings for tho
eyes and nose therein.
"Then they inarched me immedi
ately to the rear of the Labor Ex
change office, the back door of which
they forced open and entered. One of
tho men at once opened tho till be
neath the counter, but it contained
nothing. They then struck matches
and ordered me to open tho safe
which I did under threat of having
my brains blown out If I refused.
They soon emptied the money box
which contained a few dollars belong
ing to the company."
They then returned with me to tho
rear of the yard where they released
me and Immediately the three left the
premises. I was considerably dazed
but in 6ome way managed to reach
the house. Neighbors at once went to
town and secured medical assistance.
Sheriff F. T. Wrlghtman also came
out but could do nothing, other than
view the, premises. "
Mr. Joy Is accountant for the Labor
Exchange Co., and keeps all of the
company's checks amounting to sev
eral thousand dollars In his house. He
also had on his person a good watch
and several dollars in money, but these
were not asked 'or by tho robbers,
whoe only object seemed to be the
rifling of the safe.
Mr. Joy's brulbes and wounds,
though quite painful, arc not of a
serious nature and he will soon be
about once more.
The men who committed this dar
ing robbery, so brutally assaulting Mr.
Joy aro thought to be persons who arc
acquainted with the workings of the
Labor Exchange and the premises.
Tho till which is controlled by u com
blnatlon, was opened by one of the
men without tho least difficulty.
Sheriff Wrlghtman and Deputies
Cooper and Wain visited tho premises
this morning for tho purpose of ob
taining any clew that may assibt them
In ferreting out the guilty parties.
The undersigned have this day dis
solved their co-partnership by mutual
consent. All accounts will be settled
at once by either of tho old firm, J.
0. Goodale will continue tho lumber
business at the old stand hereafter.

The senate again sat for only a
short time this forenoon. Roll call at
10 a. m. showed 34 members present.
The Populist members were gath
ered in their room below discussing
Some of their men wero assured
that the regulars were willing to con
cede Bourne as speaker, but were un
willing to concede to him tho right to
name the committees or permit the
reform bills mentioned In the Peo
ple's party manifesto to pass.
The People's party men decline this.
They say It they cannot get certain
reform measures for economy and
election reforms they will go home.
There are already members looking
forward to no session at all. They
have It figured out this way: If there
Is no session and no appropriations
made, the usual $1,700,000 to $2,100,000
will not be appropriated. Tho state
will be run on warrants two years or
until a special session can bo held to
pass tho regular appropriation bill.
In tho mcantlmo Secretary of State
Klncald will Issue certificates only for
those necessary state departments
and Institutions contemplated under
the constitution. All the appendagc3
and boards and commissions will bo
lnnned off. The state will save over a
half-million dollars besides the ex
penses of a legislature and tho federal
expense of a senator. This will bo a
drastic program but tho weariness of
the people over the kind of work that
is being proposed and apparent pur
pose of the "push" is already mani
festing Itself. The "organized" senate
is costing thousands of dollars for
clerks and Junketing committees that
aro already ordered and have begun
operations. Under any organization
of tho house their extravagance can
not be checked.
It matters little who Is speaker or
how the committees aroorganlzed.tho
senate Is "put up" against abollehlng
commissions, or preventing extravag
ance. The .house might frame ever
so economical a general appropriation
bill, the senate would pack it full of
vicious Jobs, Just as It did two years
ago, when all the reductions by the
house wero restored In tho senate:
Tho house journals do not even show
that It ever concurred in tho senato
amondments.butthat Is only a sample
of tho reckless style of Oregon legisla
tures. In case of no appropriations, these
men say the state departments, the
courts, the state university and state
printing would be carried on by cetl
ficates that could bo floated at a total
expense of about $400,000 per annum,
or with eight per cent lntcrest$432,00O,
a clear saving of $400,000 to $500,000, a
year,and no Important Interest of tho
state would suffer. Ttieso memDers
say they would rather bo homo with
such a record than consent by making
a quorum to an organization that
would continue all the old abuses.

HOYAL BAKINO POWDCR CO., NEW-VOW,
San Francisco, Jan. 20. One of
the boilers of the steamer Saghallen
exploded while the vessel was off the
Chi nose coast, December 2, bound from
Singapore for Hong Kong. Eleven of
the stokers In -the fircroom aed one
engineer were killed by the explosion
or by tho scalding steam. The chief
stoker was so badly Injured that ho
died a few hours afterward rnd four
other fireman died tho next day as a
result of their burns.
The vessel was crowded with pass
engers and for a time there was the
wildest confusion on board.
A letter brought by the lllo Janeiro
from the Orient yesterday, gives the
neuius ui me disaster, me p;iss-
jengers had just assembled In the saloon
j for dinner, when there was a loud re
port, like that of a cannon. The deck
beams were torn up, gratings wero
sent flying in the air and the steamer
shaken from stem to stern.
When the steam had cleared away
men were, sent below to stockhold.
Eleven of the Lascar firemen lay
about the floor before the ruined
boiler, dead or writhing ut the last
gasp, with thelrflesh parboiled by tho
terrific bath of superheated steam in
which the explosion had plunged them
Tho chief stoker a Frenchman, was
among them. Ho died In the most
frightful agony a few moments after
lie had been carried to the deck . The
other firemen who were in the stoke
hold wero badly burned. Four of
them died during tho night following
Among the passengers were three
engineers and 20 stokers of the-French
navy, and they volunteered tnelr serv
ices to remedy tho damage. TVIthln a
duy they had the engine so far repaired
that the vessel was able to run about
six miles an hour, and a few days later
she dropped anchor at Salgow.
