Sbeep Still on Winter Kane.
Pendleton, May 15. The promise of
a few weeks ago that by this time all the
sheep would be in the mountains and be.
ginning on the summer range, has not
been realized. Many bands which were
started for the mountains have been
brought back to the winter ranse. In
many of the mountain recion. where
now there would ordinarily be good
trails into the higher altitude", the roads
are impassable, and it is impossible to
sen J the sheep through. E. T. Wade, a
well-known sheepman, says that all his
sheep have'been returned to the winter
range, and it looks as though they must
be kept there for some time yet. Others
repeat what Mr. Wade says.
Indignant at the Proposal to Pay Them
Off With a Pittance The Unenvi
able Position of General Brooke.
New York, May 16. The Herald's
Havana correspondent telegraphs as fol
lows: The situation has become most
alarming. To all apperances the Cubans
re about to make armed manifei titions
against the United States and Its mode
of governing the ielmid, altLoigh the
coneeryative element still Lopes for
peaceful arrangements. This state of
aff aits, wh'c'i was brought abruptly to a
bead last Saturday by a j artial quarrel
between General Gomiz and General
Brooke, has been forming for the last
two months. The first move has been
made by the army. It will probably be
supported by many Cubans. The army,
which Is really represented (although
many dispute his authority), by Gomez,
is incensed against Brooke and his policy.
Hie soldiers declare they have been
miserably fooled and trapped by the
Americans. They look upon the ex
change of a gun for $75 as an Ignominious
transaction for them, as they have not
been defeated by Americans, and conse
quently they refuse to change. Some
persons say the determination of the
army not to surrender arms is an out
come of General Brooke 8 refus u to sanc
tion Gomez' plan for a Cuban militia.
At the Cuban hoadquarters this state
ment is Indignantly denied, in particular
by Gomez, who, however, refuses to dis
cuss the present situation.

Many Insurgents are Returning Home,

Manila, May 17, 6:30 p. in. Al
though the rebels still threaten San
Fernando in considerable force, large
number of natives, the majority of them
having families, with their household
goods, are moving daily to the towns in
side the American lines at Apalit. Many
of the richer Filipinos are coming to
Manila, and laborers are resuming woik
in the rice fields. The latter show their
respect for American sovereignty by re
moving their hats to the passing trains.
At daylight today Lieutenant Hill,
who, with 25 men of the Fourth infantry
was concealed in the trenches near
Paeig, was attacked by a force of rebels
who evidently imagined they could
capture one of the outposts because only
a few shots had been fired by the Amer
ican force. A few volleys put the enemy
to flight, the lebtli losing flvo men
killed and a number wounded.
6:65 p. to. Colonel Summers' com
mand, consisting of the Twenty-second
infantry, on the left, the Minnesota reg
iment in the center and the Oregon and
North Dakota regiments on the right,
preceded by c0nts and accompanied by
Shott'a battery of artillery, advanced
from Baluirte at daybght. The troops
first encountered the enemy two miles
from San Isidor, the rebels retiring
when our artillery opened fire. Just
outside the town, rebel force estimated
to number 2000 men, was entrenched.
It made slight resistance, and quit the
town when our troops turned their right
flank. The enemy's loss was fifteen
killed and twenty wonnded. Our troops
lso captured three prisoners and many
rifles. On the American side,' one
soldier of the Oregon regiment and one
of the Minneeota regiment were slightly
wounded. After capturing the town,
Col. Summers' troops continued their
advance, pureiung the retreating rebels
for several miles.

to tho press criticisms, I have made no

There are 359 prisoners still in custody
Washington, May 17. Tho war de
partment is satisfied with the dispsgtch
of General Merriam, and the belief is
expreeted that he has only assisted the
governor of Idaho and tho military will
not be used for any other purpose than
that for which it was sent to the did
turbed regions. The troops of cavalry
requested by General Merriam will be
sent from Fort Meade, South Dakota,
and Fort R ibinson, Nebraska.
Troops May Yet be Mustered Out in
Washington, May 16. Senator Mc-
Bridehashad further conferences with
the war department regarding the return
of the Oregon regiment to Portland
Colonel Summers, has again cabled say
ing that the regiment prefers to go by
way of San Frauclsco, and be mustered
out at Portland. Secretary Alger said
today that the camp tentage and other
equipment at San Francisco made it
more practicable to muster out the troops
there. It is possible, if the ship is sent
up the Columbia, it miy be used for
quarters until the muster out.
Secretary Alger told Senator McBride
that Oregon should have her share of
the captured cannon. It is expected two
will be obtained from the navy depart
ment and two from the war department
for the soldiers' monument.

captured this morning, and is now driv
ing the enemy northward Into the
mountains. He has been constantly

Washington Delegation Also Fought
. Against Opening the River to
Washington, May 10. Evidence con
tinues to accumulate indicating that the
proposed boat railway at the dalles of
the Columbia, known as Celilo fall?, and
Three-.Mile rapids, of the Columbia
river, will never be constructed. The
boat-railway project for the improve
ment of the Columbia river Is now nearly
ten years old. When the 51st congress
met, Senator Mitchell introduced bill
providing for the construction of a boat
railway. It was referred to the com
mittee on transportation routes to the
seaboard, the committee of which Sen
ator Mitchell was then chairman, and
by his committee favorably reported to
the senate, During one of the days in
congress when there was little else to
occupy the senate, Senator Mitchell
called np the bill, made an elaborate
speech upon It, and presented all its
features in detail, and showed conclus
ively tbat the proj'Ct was one which
should be favorably considered by con
At the conclusion of bis speech the bill
was pissed, as many such bills are in
the senate. Senator Mitchell was an
earnest advocate of this improvement,
and believed It the solution of the of the
problem of getting aroun J the obstruc
tion at the dalles.
Many bills are passed in the senate
in much the same way as this. So far as
the actual facts are concerned, every
body understood that no improvement at
the dalles or any other river or harbor

"House in the Woods," two miles from
The Hague. M. Debeaufort, resident
of the council and minister of foreign
affairs of the government of the Nether
lands, delivered the inaugural address,
and welcomed the delegates. Then De
beaufort spoke of the high honor of the
choice of The Hague as the meeting
place of the conference, and extolled the
noble initiative of the czar, saying this
would be red-letter day in the history
of the country, and expressing the hope
that his majesty would be able to look
back at the day aa the most glorious of
his life. He concluded with calling at
tention to the allegorical group over the
doorway of the hall. Peace entering to
close the temple of Janu, and added:
"I trust this beautiful allegory wili be
an augury of your labors, and that after
you have completed them you will be

Washington, May 18. The following
cablegram has betn addressed by the
president to the emperor of Russia on
the occasion of the opening of the dis

"Washington, May 18. To His Maj
esty Nicholas II, Emperor ot All the
Russias.on this day of good omen I send
my heartfelt congratulations on the open
ing of the conference at The Hague
which had its origin in the enlightened
and generous inltative of your niajnsty.
Great Majority of the Inhabitants Are
Discouraged and Anxious for Peace
Also the Insurgent Cabinet.
Washington, May 18. General Otis
cabled the war department today as fol
lows: "Manila, May 15. Adjutant-General,
Washington: Representatives of the
Insurgent cabinet and Aguinaldo, who
are in the mountains twelve miles north
ot San Isidro, which wasjabandoned on
the 15th Instant, will send a commission
tomorrow to seek terms of peace.
"The majority of the force confront
ing MacArtbur at San Fernando has re
tired to Tarlac, tearing up two miles of
railway, and the force has decreased to
about 2000. Scouting parties and de
tachments are moving today in various
directions. Kobbe is with the Columbia
on the Rio Grande. A great majority of
the inhabitants of the provinces over
which the troops have moved are anxious
for peace, and are supported by the
members of the insurgent cabinet. The
aspect of affairs at present is favorable.
Great satisfaction was sxpreesed by
the war department officials with the
newt contained in the foregoing dispatch
of General Otip. The belief was ex
pressed that the end of the insurrection
was at hand. The wisdom of refusing
any terms to the first commission, and
impressing the insurgents is everywhere
commended. On this account no doubt
is expressed that the new commission,
which Is on its way to Manila, will be
ready to accept the favorable terms
which General OJs lias been ready to
grant upon the actual tnrremler and
cessation of hottilities. The dispatch of
General Oils was at ence sent to the
president at Hot Springs, Va.
Speaking of the part token by the
