in yrsterdaya issue we published
p o ures o! a few of the splendid build
ing wbiub. constitute the arcbitectur
al portion of tr.e Oregon Agricultural
oollsge. In the limited space at our
command we wtra unable to do little
more than deroribe the buildings, and
in Ibis second arliole of a series wbicb
we expect to publish, we will endeavor
to eipl ,io the oourse of study and pub
lish a list of (be officers ol the college
and beginning and endiug of sohool
terms. We nope that every young
man and woman in Union county
will read tbeae artioles and also con
tinue to investigate the merit of Ore-
' gons bait eduoational institution.
Tbe name of the college, the Oregon
Agricultural College, is in a manner
ell explanatory, though one must nut
conclude that only farming is taught.
The central idea of the men who con
ceived the plan of origineting tbe
school was to enable the young men
and women ol this state to b come
baiter farmers, it was not forgotten
that our youth were in need ol educat
ion along other lines. It is possible
for a student at the Agrtou'tural Col
lege to fit himself for any of tbe many
lines wherein skill and ability are beat
paid Tbe school oourse includes
mining, mechanical, electrical, and
oivll engineering, chemistry, phar
macy, language, literature, mathe
matics, inrohauical drawing, music,
and also dairying, scientific stock
feeding, farming and fruit growing
The college is amply provided forie-
garding fiuancea and the equipment
is almost perfect. There is ho but r
equiped Ubntory in the northwest
than tbe one at tb colli ge. The
professors in obarge of the work are
the very beat that can btseouredby
high salary and watohful effort. A
young man passing tbrougb tbia c 1-
legs is fitted for tbe battle of life in a
manner well Onlculated to make him a
u eful member of society and an honor
to hlm.ell and family. As an evidence
of I his fact atands the splendid record
of those who bavo boo graduated by
thii institution. The average salary
or equivalent, earned by the graduates
of this ioBtiutiorj is $1600 per annum.
Many of those graduating Irom this
college have entered business for them
selves and many are holding positions
of trust and bigb pay.

Lord Lansdowne was not disposed
to unduly press the matter and promis
ed to wait a reasonable time.
While Russia ia willing to make full
reparation if any wrong bas been done
in the case of the Koight Commander,
Count Boi.okendorff in conversation
with Lord Lansdowne made no admis
sion that the commander of the Vlad
ivostok squadron had violated inter
national law in sinking tbe vessel. Ac
cording to tbe Russian view it was tbe
luty cf the commander to de stroy any
Huppitos believed to be on the way to
Japanese ports and it is'added that
the papers ho took from tbe Knight
Commander before she sank will es

BALOK MAKES EXPLANATION
Loudon, July, :9. In t'ie bouse of
common t dnv Premier liclfuur con
firming the ai n uncomeiits madu In
the diapat bea, Hil l th acute atngrj of
the i'od sea incidents fiad passed, 'and
that Hie RiiBslnn v ilunteer lleet vessels
wood be withdrawn. He laid down
the llrttiah view that no belligerent
wu-si.tp eould issue from the Blaok
sen and that the volunteer fleet ves
sels in Issuing therefrom, if they took
belligerent action bad no right to is-
sue or to take such totioni t ' . I $ f
, Tbe strongest possible exreptton had
been taken to the seizure ol the Malao
oa on the above grounds, the premier
added. The Russian government bad
met the British contention in regard
to this part loalar" incident.
Aa to the Knight Commander ease
the government had earnestly aud per
sistently protested that the linking of
that vessel was contrary to the accept
d practice " of nations. Mr Balfour
assumed a aeriona tone aa he roferred
to the Knight Commander. '
"There are,' I am so'ry to say
slid tbe premier, "other questions
not connected with these incident at
all wl.ich mnst cause some discussion
between tbe two governments, 'and
like all disonaalons between government
there may be legitimate cause for an
xiety,' We hold that it is not proper
that nn authority of a captain of oruis
er thut goods not contraband of war
should be taken from a merchant ship
without trial." ,
This statement of the premier was
greeted with an outburst of oheers.
"Tbe proper enures," continued Mr
Balfou., 'according, to iuteauational
practice is that any ship reasonably
suspected of earring contraband ot
war, should be taken by the belligorent
to one of Its own ports and trial
should there oocur before a prize oourt
by which tbe ena) ia to be determined"
The premier continued; "More seri
ous thsn tbe others is the case of the
Knight Commander. If as our infor
mation leads us to fear, she was sunk
by a orulser of the Vladivostok squad
ron on the ground that she carried
contraband of war in onr view it la en
tirely contrary to the practice of
nations in war time and we . have
earnestly pressed our view on the Hus
sion government. .We are under a
strong impression that when the case
ia brought bb It bas brought by us lye-
fore tbe Russian government that
give such orders as to a recurrence of
unfortunate Incidents of that character.
I feel confiedent that will be the case.'
