Dolph Had Secured tbe Cnaolmoos Re
publican Canon Nomination, bat th
Silver Men Bolted sad Fought
II I m to the fr.nd End of One
of the Mont Remarkable
Political Struggle.
Salem, Ore., Feb. 26. The strujrgrle
for the election of a successor to J. N.
Dolph in the United States senate,
which has been carried on in the leg
islature for thirty-three days, came
to a close at 11:45 Saturday nijrtat by
the election of George W. Mcliride,
ex-secretary of state.
The contest has been a bitter one
from beginning to end, and up to
thirty minutes before the hour set
for final adjournment, it looked as
though it would be a deadlock.
The contest has been a remarkable
one in many respects. One month
before the legislature met it was con
sidered a certainty that Senator
Dolph would have' no opposition for
re-election, but from that time until
the legislature met the free silver
men began a campaign to defeat him.
They had no particular candidate,
but simply were opposed to Dolph on
account of lils views on the money
question. On the second day of the
session the Republicans went into
caucus, when Dolph received the
unanimous nomination. The vote
In separate sessions was taken one
week from the time of the cau
cus, but twenty-four members of
the house who had voted for
him in caucus refused to do so in sep
arate session. He received a majority
in the senate, but lacked one in the
house, his total vote, however, in the
two houses footing up 48, a majority
of two. The next day in joint session
four more votes left him, which pre
vented his election by one vote. lie
continued to drop off from day to day
uutil his support got down to 38.
The opposition stood firm, and it be
came evident several days ago that
Dolph could not be elected, though
his supporters agreed to stand by him
to the last Rather than to cause a
deadlock, however, they yielded at
the last moment and brought forward
Mcltride, upon wiium all factions
could unite, ami he was chosen on
the sixtieth ballot, receiving the full
Republican vote.

Littlk Rock, Ark., Feb, 26. After
deliberating two hours and a half
the jury in the case of Ex-State Treas
urer Woodruff, at Perry ville, returned

s stricken out It provided that a
case pending in an Indian court
should be transferable to the United

1 he liody of the Colored Orator In State
The Service Mr. Stanton' Tribute
Washington, Feb. 26. The body of
the late Frederick Douglass was taken
early this morning to the Metropoli
tan African Methodist Episcopal
church, there to lie in state until the
funeral services.
As soon an the casket had been
put in place before the altar, the
doors were thrown open and the peo
ple were admitted to pay their last
respects. A great crowd passed in
and out While colored people pre
dominated among the waiting multi
tude, there were hundreds of white
neoDle. The funeral sermon was de
livered by the Rev. Dr. J. T. Jenifer
of the Metropolian church.
A letter from Elizabeth Cad y Stan
ton was then read, which, after re
viewing her first meeting with
Douglass, closed as follows: "As an
orator, writer and editor, Douglass
holds an honored place among the
gifted men of his day. As a man of
business and a public officer, he has
been pre-eminentlv successful; honest
and upright in till his dealings, he
bears an enviable reputation. As a
husband, father, neighbor and friend,
in all social relations he has been
faithful and steadfast to the end. He
was the only man I ever knew who
understood the degradation of dis
franchisement for women. Through
all the long years of our struggle he
has been a familiar hgure on our
platform, with always an assuring
word to say. In the very first con
vention he helped me to carry the
resolution I had penned, demanding
woman suttrage. Frederick Douclass
is not dead. His grand character
will long be an object lesson in our
national history; his lofty sentiments
of liberty, justice and equality echoed
on every platform over our broad
land must influence and inspire many
coming generations."

Minneapolis, Minn., Feb. 26. Harry
Hayward, the defendant in the Ging
murder case, continued his testimony
to-day in his own behalf. He de
scribed his experience in the "sweat
box" and told how he was taken to
the morgue and the dead body shown
to him with everybody watching him.
He did not know what he did, but
said he felt very badly and knew
every one there thought him guilty.
He went to Miss Ireland and offered
to do anything about the funeral
he could. He ordered some roses
from a florist and attended to the
funeral Thursday he and Adry were
arrested and put in a cell together.
Adry seemed very down in the mouth,
and he said to him, "We're not guilty.
What's the use of feeling this way?"
Adry was dispirited and finally he
had said: "Adry what is this? You
held her up once. Did you have any
thing to do with this?" Adry was
silent and refused to talk any more.
After that there was no further con
versation between them.
This evidence caused a flutter of
excitement It brought in the story
which on Thnrsday had been ruled
out by the court that Adry was the
masked highwayman who last April
held up and robbed Harry. Miss
Ging and Miss Vedder wdile they
were out riding. Adry, it is under
stood will deny the story with an
aiioi. i

New Iceberg Lettuce
There is no handsomer or more solid
Cabbage Lettuce in cultivation in fact,
it is strikingly beautiful. The large,
curly leaves which cover the outside of
the solid heads are of a bright light
green, with a very slight reddish tinge at
the edges; they have small indents, which
are constantly filled with dew-drops.
They are thus kept fresh, and show a re
markably crystalline appearance, which
well warrants the name of Iceberg;.
The unusual solidity of the heads is in
sured by the large, white main libs of the
leaves, making it impossible for the
leaves to open outward and expos the
center, which is constantly thoroughly
blanched. It matters not whether in the
early spring or the hottest days of sum
mer, the quality is simply perfect. So
long-standiug and hard are the heads
that they seldom shoot up to seed unless
cut open with a knife. We have seldom
seen such superb heads of Lettuce, aud
we confidently recommend the New Ice
berg Lettuce as surpassingly tine for
the home garden and equally valuable
for market; its beautiful appearance in
sures quick sales. Our readers who are
nterested in gardening, should send for
a handsome free Garden Annual describ
ing the above and many other good
things for the garden. Address,
