Those opposed to organizing a provis

to tbe Philippines, and also enlisting
some of the peaceful Filipinos. But an
other element in the war department ii
opposed to half-way measures in dealing
with the situation. They are urging the
president to issue at once a call for at

Wool Moving Steadily.
Pendleton, Or., May 30. Predictions
that the wool market would be active by
June 1 ave been realized. Wool ia
moving steadily, and the clip will be
cleaned up quite promptly. Prices be'
gun on a basis representing two cents
below last year's quotations, and already
there has been tome improvement. This
improvement is not specifically signifi
cant, however, and is not believed to
indicate any very geaeral advance beyond
a small margin. "The advance," stated
one well-informedbuyer, "is due to the
influence of competition among tbe
buyers, but the influence must nec
essarily be limited. Buyers are under
orders from the houses they represent to
hold themselves in a conservative
attitude, and not repeat the mistakes of
last year, when too high prices were
paid, and money was lost ou all the sea
son's purchases. The market does not
juetify any material advance over pre
sent quotations, and must not be crowded

Two Brothers, Fishermen, are Drowned
Astoria, May 30. The first drowning
of the season among gill-net fishermen
on the lower river occurred this after
noon. The increased run of fish at the
mouth of the river during the past few
days has caused the men to venture close
to the breakers, and many narrow
escapes have been reported. A gale was
blowing today with a heavy sea running,
and just as Abraham and Oscar Juntii,
who had drifted down on the ebb tide,
attempted to raise their sail, the boat
was caught by a huge swell, thrown onto
Peacock spit end capsiied. The Canby
lifesavlng crew was close at hand and
succeeded in saving the boat and net,
but both men had sunk before they
could tie rear bed. The men hail boat
No. 082, and were fishing for the com
bine. Another fishing-boat containing two
men was carried over the bar this morn
ing. The Toint Adams lifesavlng crew
went out after them, but was unable to
pick them np and returned. What be
came of the men is not known.

posite the insurgent lines.
The boat became becalmed near the
shore and some native canoes with Fili

party ii n ler cover uf her guns and
shelled the shore biiskly. The natives,
however, rushed the prisoners into the
woods beforn the Monadnock's boat
reached the laud. Persons on board
several other ships saw the affair through
glasses, but were unable to prevent the
capture of Heppy and Blanford.
