FOR THEIR WORK
ktCiSsro Is Therefore Mallne
!i Is Believed That France and Russia
and Even Germany, Will Ulti
mately Agree With Them.
Losdox, May 20 All the diapa'ches
to the morning papers from Tlio Hague
tbo tbit the peace conference is suffer
ioj from lack of preparation. The
Monvieff circular contains heads and
chapters, but no details. Its author
emphasized disarmament, but slighted
irbitrstion. M. de Staal, in opening
the conference, absolutely reversed this
order. What is wanted is something
for daily wear and tear.
The Daily News eays : "The British
and American proposals, though simple,
ire more practicable than the scheme of
M.de Maartens, of the Russian delega
Mn, and it is likely that France and
Ead'n.and even Germany, will ulti
mately aicree with them.
War and Tyranny.
Thi Hague, May 20. Madame Selen
ka, the famous peace advocate and pro
moter of the woman's peace crusade,
presented to M. de Staal, president of
the peace conference and head of the
Russian delegation, an illustrated album
containing the text of resolutions In
favor of peace, adopted by meetings rep
relenting several million women. The
titan was accompanied by an addiess,
"in the name of the women of eighteen
Diuona," saluting tbe conference, as
suring the delegates of the faith of the
memorialists in tbe results of its labors,
begging that the hopes of the people
might not be deceived, and that the con
'mm would decide that the evils of
war eonld be cured.
The address concluded as follows:
"Your litters, on behalf of humanity,
ppealto you to realize the ideal of
fraternity in order that war aud tyranny
y perish with the century."

they return from Manila. He will go to
Yellowstone Park, and to every state
that had volunteers in tbe Philippines,
according to the present plans, if tbe
state troops are all returned before Sep
tember. He wishes to go to the coast and
return before Dewey's return, which will
be about October 1, as he will be tn Ne

claimed that this will be a political tour
and the first sounding of the Western
states on the issues of the day, so far as
the situation in the Philippines is con
concerned, and the other questions
which have grown out of the war. Tbe
exact time of his visit will depend upon
the reception in St. Paul, which he has
promised to attend, and at which he will
make speech. This reception will be
held when tbe Thirteenth regiment,
Minnesota volunteers, the comrades of
the Oregon boys, under Brigadier-Gen

the opening of the president's campaign
for asecoud term.
Fossil., Or., May 27. Storms of una
sual severity have passed over this part
of Eastern Oregon during the past few
days. On Tuesday the heaviest hail
storm ever seen in these parts fell on
Fossil and several miles of surrounding
country. The hailstones were three-
fourths of an inch in diameter, and in a
few minutes all the water-courses were
overflowing. Small chickens were killed
or drowned before they could run to
shelter. Gardens, orchards and grain
crops were badly damaged. A large,
thick pane of glass In the new addition
to the Fossil Journal office was broken
by tbe hail. This storm felt In streaks,
and, while it missed a large portion of
territory a few miles south of Fossil,
Wagner, thirty-five miles tonthest, felt
It full force. The hall was accompanied
by thunder and lightning.
On Wednesday, a severe thunder storm
passed over the May ville section. George
Gibbons, a painter, lost four of his best
work horses, worth $100 each, at his
ranch a few miles northwest of May ville.
They were killed by lightning, which
struck a barb-wire fence in bis pasture
boslda which the horses were huddled
during the storm.

Manila, May 27.-6 p. m. General
MacArtbur is in favor of nn experiment

United States. They complained that
the Tagales murdered tbera and burned

Tbe Macabebes have greatly assisted
in posting the Americans on the country

so very unpleasant, although we had a
good deal of cold wind, and in some
places it was quite dangerous, as the
Ice was full of crevasses and the weight
of our load, being 3000 pounds when we
were all on riding, cansed the water to
boll up as we passeJ over. There were

'Yes, cold comfort." Well, we were
