weeks ago ten boxes of salmon were
stolen from Damon's wharf, on Gray's
harbor, about seventeen miles from
Aberdeen. Suspicion was directed to
Joseph Anderson and Daniel Downing,
fishermen living in the vicinity. Of
ficers armed with warrants searched the
hut of Downing, but found no traces of
the mit-sing fish. Anderson could not
be found, but subsequently his dead
body was found buried in the sand. The
remains were buried, but the coroner
became suspicions and exhumed them.
Upon opening the coffin a ghastly
sight was presented. Tho head of the
body dropped back, disclosing a clean
cut from ear to ear, while the skull had
been crushed with some blunt instru
ment. Downing has just been arrested
and charged with murder.

San Fbancisco, June 21. Dr. Chas.
A. McQ'iestion, who was on the staff of
General Otis, and who was health officer
at Manila, has returned home, invalided
by the climate.
Captain McQtiestion made a close
study of the conditions of the Philip
pine situation. He if of the ouinion
that it will take from 100,000 to 150,000
soldiers to properly subdue and hold the
islands. He also says that the peace
commission was an absolute failure, and
that its work from the start was without
effect. He strongly supports the mili
tary government cf the islands, except
that lie thinks more men will be necess
ary than has been estimated.
"Dr. Schurrnan knows that the com
mission is a failure, and is coming home
in July," added Captain McQuestlon.
"Uuless troops, thousands of them, are
sent to the aid of our men there, they
will be driven back into Manila in the
course of the next few months, during
the rainy season. Our men simply can
not stand the climate. Fifty per cent of
them will bo incapacitated by sickness.
Manila will be in a state of siege again.
"One. of the great dangers that onr
men Lave to face is the climate. The
new-comers will be at a disadvantage
because the volunteers w ho are returning
home are inured to the climate. As a
matter of belief, the Filipinos t'.iink they
have the Americans licked already.
"One solution of the situation might
be to enlist colored troops from the Gulf
states, and this might settle some of the
race questions of that section. These
men would be better able to stand the
climate conditions around Manila, and it
has been proven that they are good
"I want to say a word for the Western
volunteers. They make the finest sol
diers in the world, and their fighting
qualities are wonderful. But the volun
teers all want to return home, and I
hardly think that the plan to enlist three
skeleton regiments from the volunteers
now in the Philippines will be a success.
The men enlisted to light for their coun
trp, snd they are nit the kind of men
w ho want to stay and fight an insurrec
tion for money or the fun of lighting."
Europe would rather see today than the
existence ot their factional linei in oar
cil'ienship. If these foreign colonists
get a foothold In the United States our
power will be ou the wane."
When asked what he thought Admiral
Dewey's programme would be on his re
turn to this country, he replied : "I be
lieve hi will go at once to bis home in
Vermont. He will not make any trip
over the country in response to invita
tions to attend jubilee celebrations. He
does not like that kind of glory nor does
any one of the army and navy officers.
Admiral Dewew will probably attend the
bacquet to be given in his honor in New
York, as Governor Roosevelt, who ii an
intimate friend, will attend. Besides
this, he will attend no other celebrations
or dinners,"

Sax Fhancikco, June 22. Henry T,
Oxnard, president of the American Beet
Sugar Producers' Aesociation, has pre
pared a reply to 11. O. Havemeyet's re
cent argument before the industrial coni'
mission at Washington. He flatly
denies many of Mr. Havemeyer's state
ments, aid accuses that gentlemen oi
seeking to destroy the American beet-
sugar industry in order to foster the
refineries thathandle foreign raw materi
al, besides attempting to divert public
attention from the sugar trust by attack
ing tho tariff. In his statement given
in the Morning Call, Mr. Oxnard says :
"The two largest, in fact, tto pioneer
trusts In tho country as every rne know s,
are the Standard Oil and Sugar trusts.
The Standard Oil Company does not en
joy l:s monopoly from the tariff and the
American Sugar Refining Company, ac
cording to Mr. llaveiueyer, receives only
3,'a per cent protection. How absurd,
then, is it to say that the tariff is respon
sible for trusts, But right here, I wish
to dispute Mr. Havemeyer's statement
regarding tho protection afforded to
sugar refining, claiming that it only re
ceives a protection of 3'.j per cent.
"In the Dingley tariff act sugar refin
ing receives a protection of an eighth of a
cent per pound and the testimony pro
duced before the ways and means com
mittee, of which Mr. Dingley was chair
man, brought out the fact that sugar in
a modern refinery, with the best ma
chinery, well located, can be refined at a
coBt of about a quarter of a cent per
pound. We therefore find that sugar
refining under these conditions is re
ceiving a protection of not 3,' .j. but 50
per cent advatorem, based on the cost of
refining sugar. The protection granted
the sugar-producers who make the
article ot sugar itself, is 50 per cent
on t lie cost ot raw siuar today, or
Identical with the protection granted the
sngar-retimng companies.
Mr. Oxnard declares that American
sugar-pro Jucers would suffer and the
development of the beet-sugar industry
be retarded by the adinUsion of raw
sugar free of duty. He adds :
"There is no trust among the sugar-
producers of tnis country an I there never
can be, for the simple reason that the
beet-sugar industry can be started in al
most any part of the Union."
Deep Water at Columbia's Mouth.
AsroniA, June 21. The channel of the
Columbia, or, as It is gent-rally called,
"the bar," is rapidly shifting its position,
due undoubtedly to the effect of the jetty.
There is now almost as much water in
the old north channel at In tho present
channel marked out by the buoys. Yes
terday Pilot Matthews went out on the
tug Wallula and made soundings around
the month of tho river. He headed
abjut northwest between buoys No. 1
and l'.j, nearly in the lice with tho old
north channel. Ho found in it no less
than twenty -fire feet of water, and that
only at few places, clear out to deep
water. Captain Matthews says that,
while the channel is undoubtedly shift
ing to the north and Peacock spit is dis
appearing, there is as much water as
there ever was, and though some sand
Is piled up by a westerly wind, it soon
washes clear again, Fully realizing the
benefit that the jetty has been to the
bar, lie feels confident that its extension
milo further out would increase its nee-
fulness and permit the largest vessels to
enter the river almost regardlesi of the
