NEW FRUIT LAW
Board oi Horticulture at Work Ipon a
M.asure Will Fuilj Cover All
Fuli rMsij'aigo work, and the drafting
of a new horticulture! law claimed the
attention of the Mate board of horti
culture at its adjourned session today.
The lama of the different Pacific Coast
eutei will be drawn upon in formulating
measure whtcQ will more lully cover
To Inspect Nursery Stock.
The Fall campaign work will be the
inspection of nurserymen's stocks. Every
nurseryman niU9t have a certificate is
gue J by the board before he can sell any
trees. Tho certificates will bo good for
one year and will expire August 31) 01
each year. A copy ot trie certificate 19
"Oregon State Board of Horticulture,
certificate of inspection of nursery stock.
' This is to certify that I have, this
day of , 19 inspected and ex
mined the nursery stock of and, 60
far as I am able to ascertain, have found
it in good marketable condition and clear
of any eerious insect peet or disease,
Their methods of bundling and growing
Etcck are .
"This certificate expires August 30,
Across the certificate in red ink is
"The condition under which this certi
ficate is granted, is that the party or par
ties receiving such certificate shall be
compelled to disinfect bv fumigation with
hydrocyanic acid gas, as described in
rule 8, all pear and apple trees, or other
stock grown on apple roots, after lifting
the same and before delivery to pur
chaser or carriers; and in case said
fumigation is neglected this certificats of
inspection Bhall be void and of no effect."
In this manner the board regulates the
sale of nursery stock and protects grow
ers against baying dieeased nursery
stock. In this new law being drafted
will be ineertcd a clause making it a mis
demeanor for nurserymen to sell any
slips from infected trees, and drawing
stricter lines all around for the sale of
stock, so that every grower will have a
guarantee that the stock is as re
presented. The future quality of Oregon's
fruit of course depends opon the young
orchards, and it is esentlal that the
transplanting shall be from only the
most vigorous and healthy parent stems.
Aside from the matters mentioned and
a proribion for appointing an inspector
to each country, it is not likely there
will be many radical changes in tho new
law, different than tboee in the present
law. The law noi in force is not pro
gressive and up to date enough in every
particular, which makes it necessary to
drnft a new one in order to keep pace
with the advancement of the fruitgrow
ing interests In Oregon. In many es
sentials the new will be stricter, in order
to encourage those who raise clean fruit.
W'liilo the board lias delegated the
power of preparing and drafting the law
to its president, that person desires to
Incorporate the ideas of the other mem
ters, sa that he may obtain a clear
understanding of the especial needs tf
their respective distric's, and with that
object in view the meeting was adjourned
until today. The board expects to con
'hide its business Session this afternoon.

With Some Slight Changes in Details
of the Propositions France Has
Laid Before the Powers, United
States Will Give "Hearty Assent
to the Plans Suggested.
Washington-, Oct. 10. There is no
longer any doubt that this government
heartily approves the many propositions
laid down in the French note made
public on the 5ih Inst., in regard to a
common program to be adopted by the
powers as a basis for peace negotiations
As to the first of the proposed terms
of settlement, the punishment of the
principal culprits, this government has
already declared itself in unmistakable
terms. As to the second, the mainten
auce of the inhibition against the import
uf arms, this government w ill cot de
clare itself to the poiut of making it an
absolute prerequisite to further negotia
tions. As to the third and fourth
positions providing for indemnities to
states, societies and individuals, and
individuals, aud the formation of
permanent euard fdr the legations in
Pekin, a cordial assent will be given
As to the fifth, which requires the dis
maritlement of the Taku fortifications,
this government is not disposed to go
quite to the length of making it an in
dispensable condition as does the French
The sixth of the French conditions
reads as follows:
"Military occupation of two or three
points on the road from Tien Tein to
IVkin which would thus be always open
to the legations wishing to go to sea, or
forces proceeding to Pekin from the
This paragraph would eeefh to make
it obligatory upon the powers to main
tain garrisons at these points, and while
the conditions are such as to make their
occupation lor the safety of the mem
bers of the legation and others desiring
to travel between Pekin and Tien Tarn,
this government is disposed to make
the deuinnd.as a matter of right, to be
exercised by any or all of the poweis at
will. The formal note embodying the
views of this government substantially
as outlined above is in preparation, and
probably will be handed to Mr. Thiebaut,
the French charge in Washington with

No Work Will Be Done Next Week.
Miners' Convention Will Be la
Session Several Days.
Pottsville, Ta., Oct 10. The Shea
andoah delegates to tho miners' conven
tion have received their final instruc
tions. Not one of them will vote
contrary to these instructions. At the
meeting of two of the local unions of
the United Mine Workers at Shenan
doah, it was decided to demand that the
sliding scale, or the 2.50 basis, should
be abolished before the strike is declared
at an end. The delegates to the Scran
ton convention were so instructed.
Many of the delegates from Schuylkill
declare that before an agreement is
reached between the operators and
miners a joint conference must be held
before'.whii h the sliding scale, dockage,
semi-monthly pay, and other grievances
must be ad'usted. It is not believed
that the operators will go into such a
President Mitchell and other labor
lenders are strong advocates of annual
wage scale arrangement. similar to that
in force in tho bituminous coal fields.
The operators in these regions meet
their employes each year and fix a wage
scale. If this proposition and that re
lating to the abolition of the eliding
wage scale are brought before the con
vention and negotiations with the mine
owners aro not reported, it will cause
considerable delay in tho settlement of
the strike. The convention may be in
session several days and it is hardly
probable that any coal will be mined
next week. Some of the national officers
are unanimous In their declarations for
a settlement and will exercise their in
fluence with delegates to accept the offer
of the companies.
At ibis time the men are divided on
the proposition as to whether or not it
is victory. The sliding scale and the
price of coal at tide water have Ken an
enigma to more enlightened minds than
those ot the miners in the past, and the
real gain or lost Till only be demon
strated by actual practice. A vote for
the resumption of woik is regarded as
certain, but this it i believed will only
be 'ecured after considerable difficulty.
Most of the mine owners who have
granted the increase do no' specify in
their notices how long the advance shall
remain in force, and it is not unlikely
that an atterapt will be in add by the
miners in convention to open negotia
tions with the operators looking toward
an understanding on this matter. This
will cause delay, and na one looks for
resumption of work early next week.
Repairs to Oregou.
Washington, Oct. II. Naval Con
structor F. W. Hibbs has been trans
ferred from Mare Inland to Puget Sound
naval station. This plan is for the pur
pose of making preparations for the re
pair of thlps which have been engaged
in China. It is likely that the Oregon
will be the first sent to that dock. The
Oregon catnot be repaired at Mare
island and would have to be sent to the
Atlantic were it not for. the dock at
Puget Sound affording facilities. It is
expected that repairs amounting to about
$100,000 will be made on the Oregon.
Other ships, when they are sent home,
will also be sent to this dock.
Chief Constructor Hichborn says tiiat
while the dock at Puget Sound is availa

will be necessary to have a larger dock

Fred Kane Died at Baker City Yester
day Local Investigation Will Sot
Be Necessary Now and the Mys
tery May Never Be Cleared l p.
B.kkeu City, Oct. 11. Fred Kane
died at St. Kliithcth'i Hospital yester
day, three weeks to the dav from the
tragedy at Bunker Hill, five miles from
here, in which he figured so prominent
ly, and whose real story w ill now prob
ably remain a mystery, for there is no
longer any occasion for the legal investi
gation which wotiid have brought out all
the facts. A complaint is on file in the
Baker Citv justice court in which the
little girl's nncie charges Kane, with
murder in the first degree, in having
wilfully caused the death of Baby Ruth
Louey, but the warrant Issued upon it
was never served.
The story of the tragedy has been
variously told, but neither of the to
principals havo been strong enough 4J
relate ail the details by which tho nar
rative could bo corroborated. Two
cabins were burned ; Kane's four-year-old
step daughter's blackened remains
were found in ttiO ruins of one; Mrs.
Kane, badly wounded, was hidden lu
the brush, from, according to ber asser
tion, the pursuit of her crazed husband,
and Kane himself was found with an
ugly wound through his chest lying a
short distance from the smouldering
ashes of tho upper cabin. Stories and
counter reports in.'broken fragments
have Binco been given out, but the
easiest to believe and most charitable
view is that the little girl's death is the
work of an insane man, who afterwards
fired the shot which has reoulted in his
death. The mynterious stranger, whose
presenco would reflect Upon the wife,
and for whom it has been clalrred she
has concealed the truth, has never been
taken seriously by the authorities, and
that Kane's wound was self-inflicted in
its nature, as deterined by recent careful
investigation, together with the powder
burning, would go far to indicate.

Still on the I'.each,
AsToittA, Oct. 11. The stranded light
ship is still on the beach at McKenx'e
Head, aud the prospects of floating her
are becoming poorer every day. The
contractors have been waiting for the

gress has been made with the work, and
the opinion prevails that the lightship
will never bu taken seaward. It is also
believed she is so badlv strained as to bd
unfit for service even if she were floated.
