mar, in the Philippines, Wednesday,

( maiuder of the company arrived on the
acence in time to prevent further slaugh
ter, and routed the enemy killing over
100 of them. It is believed that the en
emy retired only for reinforcements. Ae
Boon as the news was received at Catha
logan, two gunboats were dispatched,
General Smith going in person to the
Renutor Simon, of Oregon, called "on
President Roosevelt at Washington this
morning, and had a pleasant interview
concerning appointments in Oregon. He
particularly expressed dissatisfaction
with the appointment of George W. Bi
bee, as receiver of the Oregon City land
office. President Roosevelt said he had
not been previously aware of the lack of
harmony in the Uregon senotorial dele
gation, and in making the recent ap
pointment ol Bibee he Lelived there was
get the door open, and then to attack
the garrison. It also developed that the
instigators were a priest and the Presi
dente, both of whom have been arrested
together with several other prominent
persons. Other' attempts huve been
discovered, but fortunately frustrated, at
Pambujan and other-points in Samar.
Reinforcements are being rushed to the
island, and American troops there antic
ipate hard fighttug.
Marquis Ito arrived in Washington,
and was entertained by the'Japanese le
gation. In speaking oi the adjustment
of other nations' troubles with China,
his representative said that it may be
necessary for China to have a new com
mercial.treaty with Japan.
The Skagway Daily Alaskan says:
"A new United States commissioner will
soon be appointed for this district, to
take the place of C. A. Sehlbrede, who
several months ago left the city on a
tour throu J h the north, For some time
past it has been alleged that Judge Sehl
brede has used his official position to his
own personal advntage. The grand

would be made in Oregon without firstjwasa practicing attorney at Roseburg,
consulting roth senators. Upon receipt
of a telegiaph protest from (senator Si
mon against Bibee'i appointment re
ceived several days ago, the President
held up the commission which had al

some future compromise arranged.

For "The Columbia River Basin
Oregon's Board of Trade,'' was
Good. the title of a commercial
body formed in Portland
yesterday. Great interest was mani
fested by delegates from interior towns,
who took a lively part ia the discussion
relative to organization. Seneca Smith,
of Portland, nas elected president, and
one of the numerous vice-presidents is
A. E. Austen, of Woodburn. Attention
was called to the fact that an enlarge ! i
board of trade, wiih active members in !
the state and in the Oilnmbia basin, will
wjden the scope of our usefulness. The
climate and other conditi ns of this vast
section are so varied that no local board
can bring the knowledge of them to the
world at large. The Eastern men who
settled in Baker City, through represen-
tations from Partland will find climatic
conditions very different from those rep
resented by the local board of trade west
of the mountains, while a still greater
departure from the Eastern Oregon cir
cular might be discovered by the home
Eeeker, who settles in Eastern Oregon.

o'clock, and five minutes
afterward began to round the Eiffel
tower. He completed his trip success
fully, but a doubt has arisen as to
whether it was done in the time limit,
30 minutes. M. Deutsch says the aer
onaut won the prize. The committee,
however, declares that Santo-Dnmont
took more than 39 minutes to make the
trip. The enormous crowd that had
gothered inside and outtide the grounds
gave the aeronaut a tremeudous ova
tion. As his basket came within speak
ing distance, Santos-Dumont leaned
over the side and asked : "Have I won
the prize?" Hundreds of spectators
Bhouted, "Yes, yes," but the Count de
Dion, a member of the eommittee, ap
peared and threw a damper on the en
thusiasm by saying: "My friend, you

Samar. Baines, jr., of the Ninth
United States Infanry, an
other slaughter of American troops was
averted. It seems that the lieutenant
discovered a prisoner re-entering a cell
at Carbiga island, Samar, where several
were confined, through a whole in the
wall. An investigation showed a plan
to fill the jail with bolomen and to call
the guard, which would be necessary to

Some Experiences of Practical
Claclsmnas County Farmers.
There is a growing tendency among
Clackamas couuty farmers to pay more
attention to stock raising in a limited
way, instead of producing straight grain
crops. William Barlow, (,f Barlow, says
there is no profit in raising grain, al
though he has made money cut of hay.
He has now embarked in the milk busi
ness, shipping the straight product to
Portland daily, the buyer paying the
freight on the cans and returniug them

The first meeting of the Clackamas
County Teachers' Association for the
year will be held at the Harmony
school house on the East side of the
Southern Pacific railroad track, between
Clackamas Station and Milwaukie, to
morrow morning, (Saturday.) Profes
sor T.J. Gary, Miss Fannie G. Torter
and County Superintendent J. O. Zin
ser, the committee, have arranged the
following excellent program to be par
ticipated in by representative talent:
At the forenoon session Mrs. G. M.
Strange, of the Willsburg school, will
tell "How to Make the Schoolroom At
tractive." The round table topic for
afternoon will be as follows: The
Teachers' Part, Mies R. T. Smith, prin
cipal of the Eastham school, Oregon
City; The Pupil's Part, Miss Florence
Patty, West Oregon City ; The Parents'
Part, Miss Kathryn Casto, Milwaukie;
The Directors' Part, Principal J. W.
Ficher, Clackamas; The Superintend
ent's Part, Principal H. T. Evans, of Os
wego. The Oregon C.ty Academy is having
a much larger attendance of pupils than
heretofore, manv young peeple in town
taking special courses of study there.
Professor W. H. and Mrs. Davis are ex
cellent teachers, and their academy has
become a permanent institntion.
W, W. Austen and two other teachers
in Grant county have been holding a se
ries oi educational meetings in that sec
tioa, which were well attended.
The Mens' Club first supper of the
season, held at the Congregational
church last week, was a notable begin
ning for another season's literary feast
ing. These Buppers and talented lec
tures will be special features of the club
meetings during the coming winter.
The officers elect, Colonel Robert A .
Miller president, Waldo Adams secre
tary and I. D. Taylor treasurer, are well

About three weeks ago the city coun
cil ordered the chief of police to have all
the slot machines removed. They still
stand on the counters. By the way, who
was to get tl at $7 50 per month, that
an attempt was made to collect from
each individual who kept a slot ma
chine on his premises?
The Retail Merchants Association
want cheaper lights, and are alter those
paid straight for the milk, w hich is con- fellows with a sharp uouge, who decline
eidered more profitable than selling the to close up their places of business at
cream at a skimming station. . Mr. Bar- 8 p.m. :
low intends to add to his herd of cows,
and estimates that it will n.t take very
many good milkers to fill 10 10-gallon
cans daily, which would intai a reve
nue of $10 daily . Mr. Barlmv believes
that milk-producing at this prica will
prove a profitable venture.
In pioneer diys the common breed
mulev cow had the reputation of being
a rustler. There was no danger of her
sturving, for she would rustle feed in the
highways and byways. The familv
muley cow also was a great milker. The
thoroughbred red poll possesses some of
the characteristics of the old-fashioned
muley cow, only she has many more
points of excellence George Lazelle, of
Canemah precinct, is so well pleased
with six red poll cows and one bull, that
ne expects to go Jiast soon to add to his
herd. Mr. Lazelle deems the red poll
the best cow that can be kept on the
farm. They give a good quantity of
rich milk, and are hardy and easily
kept. They are easily fattened for beef,
as well as being an -.deal breed for dair
ying purposes. Leonard Heinz, of
Macksburg, also has a small herd of red
polls, and be believes that they aft the
coming breed for farm use, as the far
mer needs an all-round cow in his busi
ness. The fact that the red polls have
no horns scores another point in their
favor. No dehorning or horn ailments.
The potato yield of Clackamas county
will not fall much below that of but
year, as it has been discovered that a
largely increased acreage was planted
last spring. At present and prospective
prices the potato crop will be the means
of distributing thousands of dollars in
' D. Kauffman, of Needy, who was in
town Wednesday, reports that his corn
silos are proving a great success for fall
and winter feed for his cows. Mr,
Kauffman is a very successful dairyman,
his creamery being a paying invest
ment. His green corn silos have been a
great help in the business.
It is actually getting too dry for plow
ing, notwithstanding the heavy rains
that fell earlier in the season.
