Manila, Feb. 27. 4:4-5 p. m. Two
commissioners who returned from Malo
los under a flag of trace today report
that 8X)0 rebels are aurious to surren

Aguinaldo is inclined to accept pacific
Spanish CommUeioners Roseato and
Bogoto were permitted to pass our line
to confer with Aguinaldo in reference to
Spanish prisoners at Maloia. They re
tamed throagh the lines this morning
near Calocan with dispatches for ttie
Spaniards. They said Aguinaldo and
Sandiko are both at Malolos.
While the Filipinos are not ret pre
pared to surrender the Spanish prisoners,
tbey will gladly release two Americans
who have been held for six weeks, on
payment of $30 value of food and cloth
ing furnished them.
Shortly afterwards the rebels sent out
flag of truce. Bornelll, Commandant
Sintoresedode Lacruee and several hun

Hi conduct at Apia. Herr Sail now
on duty in one of the German posses

to first proceed to Berlin.
It was stated today that the Samoan
question has never been at a danger
point, as has been reported, but fault
has been displayed on both sides, and
Germany and the United States propose
to take action to restore order. Herr

Chief Justice Chambers' recall will
not be due to his decision or to bis
course, bat to the letter he wrote to his
brother, which contained statements
objectionable to the German itovern
ment, which has been communicated to
the state department. The officials say
that his usefulness has gone, to some
extent, as the result of his letter, and
Germany has intimated that she would
be pleased if some other person was ap
pointed as hie successor. .
Within ten days it is expected that
reports will be received from the three
consuls fully explaining their acts, and
when these have been considered, action
will be taken by the two governments.
There is one other point which re
mains to be settled by diplomatic nego
tiation. Germany will insist that
Mataafa, by reason of the overwhelming
majority he received at the election, be
made king, but the decision of the chief
justice and the protocol of the Berlin
treaty exclude him forever from con
sideration in connection with the king
ship. The administration proposes to
support Malitoa Tanus. Great Britain
is similarly inclined, and as a majority
rules, he will probably be established
on the throne. -

Myrtle Creek Notes.
Myktlk Cheek, Or., Feb. 26. The
freczd of the last few weeks has damaged
but very little of the early sown grain,
and none of that sown just betore the
fieeze. The fruit trees have not been
damaged In the least, and the prospects
are for a full crop of fruits of all kinds.
Many driers will be built this year in
order to handle the crops of the young
orchards just coining into bearing.

for an occasional volley and some inll

d.tyume, but the' Americans no longer
pay much attention to them, reserving
their fire nntil the rebels appear in the
open in sufficient force to justify a volley
or an occasional shell. During the night
time the men are accustomed to the
enemy's salutes, and a majority of them
remain undisturbed, secured by the out
poets and sentries.
In Manila absolute quiet prevails; the
streets are deierted and the only sounds
to be beard after 7 o'clock in the even

entries and the occasional canter of the
hoofs of an officer's horse.

How to Prevent Pneumonia.
You are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always results from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe. During the
epidemic of La Grippe a few years ago
when so many cuses resulted in pneu
monia, it was observed that the attack
was never followed by that disease when
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy was used.
It counteracts any tendency of a cold or
La Grippo to result in that dangerous
disease. It Is the beet remedy in the
world for bad colds and La Grippe.

Fell Under a Train.
Grant's Pash, Or., Feb. 26. As the
north-bound treight was leaving town
this morning, Walter Cleavland, aged
about 14 years, attempted to swing off
the truss rods of one of the cars. He
miscalculated his step and fell with his
right foot under the wheel, cotting it
wide open. It is the opinion of the at
tending surgeon that a part of the foot
can be saved.

Such w as the testimony of a republican
j.oet. and there is no doubt that the sad
oignity with which "luarlca btuurt
comported himself in his last days
roused qualnis of remorse among some
of those contemporaries who had been
harshest in their judgment of his pub
lic policy. Admiration of the man went
far to redeem the faults of the king
and with posterity he became at once
the most tympathetic figure in the his
tory of England--not even second to
Mary Queen of Scots. And of her no

This relish of bloodshed as distin

How soon can the Soudan be made to
meet its own share cf expense and re
lieve the Kgyptiun exchequer? It must
prove, at first, a costly acquisi
tion. A numerous local force muFt
be maintained, and although the
Egyptian army estimates may be
relieved by a certain reduction of
the native troops, the. military
establishment in the Soudan will r.till
constitute a severe tax, to which the
province can contribute little. Even
in more flourishing days, before it was
wasted and depopulated by the piti
less dervish rule, the Soudan was not
particularly productive; its export
trade did not exceed 1,000.000, and its
chief product was gum nrabic. There
is tome accumulation of this, it is said,
awaiting more peaceful times to come
down country, and the industry will
no doubt revive and develep. Agri
cultural enterprise will probably ex
tend, especially in the land longest
recovered; the fertile province of Don
pola, for example, which, according to
all accounts, has made rapid progress
under the active steps taken to recol
cnize. Nine-tenths of the old popula
tion has returned, many from the lower
province, and grants of land have been
freely given to nil. The same good re
sults may be seen higher up the river,
at Abu llamed and Berber, and all
trade will be stimulated by the facilities
offered by several routes the new
railway back to Wady Haifa, and the
cow reopened desert road to Suakin.
Aa for the heart of the Soudan, Khar
toum, and beyond, it is not yet in the
Egyptian possession, and it is still an
known quantity, its resources hardly
explored. Many think that it is rich
in mineral wealth, and the existence
of a great gold-bearing field in this
southeastern extremity has long been
known, the country of the Reni Shengol,
on the confines of Abyssinia, ond be
lieved to be really the site of the Hib
lical King Solomon's mines. The sad
fact is also known that this auriferous
territory has alreudy passed into other
hand. The man in possession isMene
