Onitci States Troops Will End tbe
Trouble at PnyalluD.
And from Tacoma Will Go Direct to
the Reservation and Stop the
Railroad Building.
Vancouver, Wash., May 11. The con
tinued intrusion of Koss and his rail
road party from Tacoma, and their de
termination to build across thePuyallup
reservation at all hazards, culminated
in a telegraphic order from the war
department to forcibly put a atop to the
railroad building. Thia afternoon Gen
eral Ruger isaued the necessary order
from headquarters, department of the
Columbia, and Captain Carpenter and
hi company of the Fourteenth infantry
were selected to repel the invaders.
The troop were issued 40 rounds of am
munition and tent equipage and rations
tonight, and are busily engaged in pre
paring for field service. They leave
Vancouver barracks about 5 o'clock to
morrow morning by steamer for Port
land. On arriving there they will
march to the Northern Pacific depot and
take the 9 o'clock train for Tacouia, ar
riving there at 4 p. m., whence they
will proceed at once to the Puyallup
reservation and enforce their orders
againtt the intruders ou the reservation.
Captain Carpenter was selected for this
service because he is one of the senior
officers of the regiment and has a fine
record for field service.

Election Manifesto.
Berlin, May 12. The conservatives
publish this morning theirelection man
ifesto. It savors in every line of agrari
anirm, w hile protection and bimetallism
are avowed boldly as the foremost party
principle which must lie reckoned with
by the government if it desires a firm
alliance. No unequivocal word is
spoken concerning the army bill. In
fact, anything that could be construed
a a definite approval of the measure is
carefully avoided. The manifesto hints
at the desirability of a large tax which
would fall most heavily upon Jewish
speculators. The anti-Semitic senti
ment of the party is not iecially con
spicuous iu the manifesto, but a spe
ciously worded paragraph aay that the
'profession Christianity must lie ade
quately impressed upon the life of the
iieople and the action of the legislative
bodies and the administration of justice."
Two Stories From Nicaragua.
Washington, May 12. Minister Guz
man, of Nicaragua, has received advices
the exact opinwite of those sent Gresham
by United Statea Minister Newell. In-
etead of the revolutionists having things
all their owu way, Guzman says his ad
vices are several day later than those of
Newell, and that a big decisive battle,
which doubtless would result in a per
manent victory for the government, was
exjiected to lie fought today. Infinite
new of the result will not be known for
a couple of days. The X'nited States
warship Atlanta will leave New York to
day for Greytown, Nicaragua. A dis
patch to the navy department from San
Francisce says the Alliance will sail for
Corinto, Nicaragua, today instead of Sat
urday. The Itelirlna; Hen Tribunal.
Paris, May 12. Sir Charles Russell
continued his address in behalf of the
British case before the Behring sea tri
bunal of arbitration today. Sir Charles
discussed the rights of Kussia in the
Behring sea under the treaties between
Kussia and Great Britain. Sir Charles
contended that the treaties in question
recognized merely territorial rights. Sir
Charles then went into an analysis of
the American statutes relating to Beh
ring sea, aud argued that the statutes
in question were territorial in theirchar
acter ami not applicable to foreigners.
A Test Will He Made.
Washington, May 12. When Senator
I)olph was informed that naval vessels
to iail to Behring sea were to be coaled
at Departure bay, B. C, he secured a
reversal of the order. The vessels are
now Instructed to load w ith Puget sound
coal, and a test will lie made, of this.
Senator Dolph hopes that the very best
coal will lie furnished these vessels, as
it may determine the supply of vessels
in the future.

Want to llae the Capital Itemoved
From Ralem.
Koskiii-ru, May 12. Since the in
junction proceeding enjoining the
Sold'er' Home commissioners from pro
ceeding with the building of the Soldiers
Home near Roseburg, because of the
constitutional provision that no state
public building shall be erected at any
place but tbe state capital, the citizens
of Roseburg have been holding number
of impromptu indignation meetings and
the sentiment is working toward creat
ing public sentiment throughout the
state to remove the state capital from
Salem to Albina.
The provocation if so much stronger
than that which caused the removal of
the capital of California from Sacramento
to San Jose that the citizens of South
ern Oregon would certainly have the
eupport of the entire state, because of
the greediness of the people. If this
injunction should succeed, then, of
course, all the towns and cities through
out the state that now have pub
lic buildings would have to give them
up, and then the building, of course,
would have to be erected in Salem.
The citizens of Roseburg with good rea
son think the next legislature could be
induced to pass the necessary law to
place before the people of the state a
constitutional amendment, taking that
right away from Salem and also chang
ing the capital.
Enough Or In Night to Make the Dis
coverers Klch.
Baker City, Or., May 12. One of the
richest gold strike ever made in this
section of country, not excepting the
now famous White Swan mine, which is
yielding fl ,000 per day with a 10-stamp
mill, waa uncovered yesterday. The
lucky finders of the rich gold deposit are
James and Samuel Baisley, the latter
one of tbe discoverer of the White
Swan. The new find is situated about
three wiles south of the White Swan
and Virtue mines. Over fl, 000 in gold
was pounded out Jyeslerday in a hand
mortar. Tbe ledge in which this pocket
has been found ha been uncovered 100
feet, and prove to be a pay chute for
that distance and varie in width from
two to ten feet. There is enough rich
ore in sight to make the owner an im
mense fortune. The city ia greatly ex
cited over the find and the people have
been leaving all day to be on the ground
and stake off extensions. Sample of
ore, one piece weighing ten pounds, and
containing over fl00 In gold, have been
placed on exhibition at the Baker City
National bank aud have been viewed by
hundreds of people. All say that it is
the greatest find ever made in the North
west, and from all indications the mother
lode of the Virtue &nd White Swan dis
tricts has been found.
The Cuban Insurgents.
Key West, Flu., May 12. Everything
is quiet in the Cuban colony. Large
quantities of arms and ammunitions are
here, destined for the Cuban insurgents.
The federal officers here are instructed
to prevent the shipment of these at all
hazards. The cutter McLaue's officera

customs ollicers patrol the south beach

the authorities to prevent an expedition

all the insurgents havesurrendered, and
say the Spanish authorities have sup

Supreme Court Declares tUe Geary Act
The Author of the Bill Is a California",
and Says He Knew What He
Was Doing.
Washington, May 15. Special to
The Chronicle. Interest centered to
day in the Chinese exclusion act, com
monly known as the Geary bill, and the
United States supreme court room, as
well as the galleries, was thronged to
hear the discussion. The decision, as
finally arrived at, was that the act was
constitutional, and the roar of approval
that went up from the throats of the
listeners effectually precluded anything
being said for several minutes. The
judge had to rap sharply with his gavel,
and several were ejected from ihe court
room before even comparative Bilence
could be restored. It developed during
the argument that Geary of California
upon formulating his bill, had sought
the best legal advice obtainable and was
pronounced constitutional by leading
authorities in the state, including the
judge of the supreme bench and the ex-
governor of the state.
Outside of the judicial halls, however,
there is manifest a good deal of anxiety
aud those who have taken a prominent
interest throughout professed serious
alarm, both as to China's conduct to
ward the United States and the sever
ance of friendly relations with that
country, which will seriously afreet our
trade relations.
Official information has not yet
reached Portland, but a bulletin posted
up on the streets is attracting crowds of
people and the general sentiment is of
Records of proceedings in the federal
courts in New York on Saturday, in
what are known aa the Chinese Exclu
sion cases, were Bleu in the
supreme court by T. D. Riorden of San
Francisco, counsel for the Six companies.
These are the cases in which petitions
are made for the issuing of writs of
hapeas corpus in behalf of the Chinese
arrested and held by John W. Jacobus,
United States Marshal for the southern
district of New York. The petitioners
are Fong Yue Ting, Wong Quan and
Lee Joe. The record in tbe case of Lee
Joe show that it was intended to test a
separate point in the law, or at least a
construction of the law made by the
collector of internal revenue in New-
York. The collector refused to accept a
Chinese witness as to the indentity of
Lee Joe when the latter applied for a
certificate. The law required the evi
denceof a white witness in court, but is
silent an to the nationality or radical
characteristics of witnesses before the
collector, and this point played no un
important part in the proceedings,
which finally decided the point against
the Chinese.
A Life Insurance Decision.
Newport, Ky., Mayjll. The Ken
tucky court of appeals has handed down
a decision of great moment to insurance
companies. The court decides that a
policy taken out by a wife on the life of
her husband, without his knowledge,
cannot be collected in case of death, as
an Insurance contract is a personal con
tract. The court further holds that
w here a w ife has used her husband's
money in paying for such policy he may
recover by civil process.
Cuban Hyniiiathlsera Malm That riialn

Key West, Fla., May 13. Advices
from Cuba to the insurgents hero bid
them not to despair or give up. The
province of St. It) go is virtually held by
the insurgents and they can not be
easily dislodged. The Cubans tonight
had a parade and speech making. It is
staled that 500 of the 3,000 men in line
are ready to embark for Cuba. The M as

of raids in the province of Havana

reports of Spanish authorities that
everything is quiet, federal officials hero
have reliablo information that there are
large quantities of armsand ammunition
stored on this island, destined for the
Cuban insurgent. Every precaution
will be taken to prevent shipment.
