White Captain Guy Burrows, who
Men has just arrived at London
Atrocious. Irom the employ of the
Congo Free State govern
ment, after six years Bervice, declares
in an interview today with a representa
tive of the Associated Press that the
conditions prevailing in the Congo Free
State are a disgrace to civilization, and
far worse than ever hefore. He pic
tured atrocities of the most horrible
character, perpetrate i on the natives by
officials and whites who had concessions
of rubber land. As a typical instance of
the means employed by the Free State
government, Captain Burrows corrobo
rated the statement of the American
missionaries to the effect .that the offi
cials employed 500 cannibals to whom
they issued rifles to "massacre and cap
ture unarmed natives who had rebelled
against their inhuman methods." "I
have sworn testimony," said Burrows,
"of the Belgians handing over natives
to Cannibal tribes for the express pur
pose of being eaten. Forced labor pi e
vails everywhere, and "shotgun rule,"
is the truest description of the prestnt
administration. The companies deriv
ing wealth from the collection of rubber
are all more or less state enterprises, as
a third or half the share in them iB in
variably held by state government. Lat
terly, King Leopold and the govern
ment have made tome show tf action
against the agents of some of the Upper
Congo companies, but only minor offi
cials are ever touched, and the so called
reforms are merely intended to throw
dust in the eyes of the public, whose in
dignation has been aroused by the sto
ries of this reign of of terror. While the
present systems for the collection of
rubber and the recruitment of natives
continue the Congo Free State will re
main a disgrace to the white man's
work in Africa.
Reforms in China appear as far away

State The governor, secretary of
state and state treasurer today estimated
the amount of revemm to be raised for
state purposes for the year 1902 at $895,
000 for general purposes and $25,000 for
the ftato agricultural college, or a total
of 4920,000. This is $260,000 greater
than last year's revenue. This sum is
apportioned among the several counties
according to the ratio fixed by the act of
to our pleasant words and make you happy
soarings and increased benefits in buying
the last legislature. Under that act,
each county will contribute to the ex-penses-of
the state in proportion which
their average aseessments for the last
five years bear to the average of the to
tal assessments of all the couniies for
tin same period. The pnrpose of that
law was to remove the inuentive to re
duction oi valuations, and now each
county must conlribuie its due propor
tion, however, low or high its assess
ment may be. Clackamas county's pro
portion is $29,982. Six counties in the
state will be required to pay a larger
amount than Clackamas.

A collision at sea Thursday morning
between the steamship Walla Walla
and an unknown sailing vessell off cape
Mendocino. It resulted in the sinking
of the steamship and the probable loss
of a least 20 lives. The Walla Walla,
owned by the Pacific Coast Steamship
Company, sailed from San Francisco
January 1st for Puget Sound ports. She
carried 30 first-class passengers, 28 sec
ond class and a crew of 80 men. When
off Cape Mendocino on. the California

Sell. Panama Canal Company offer,
to sell its property for $40,000,

make no difference with the program
for passing the Nicaragua canal bill in
the house. The friend of this measure
say that the Panama proposition is
simply a move by the transcontinental
railroads intended to defeat the Nicara
gua bill. Hepburn says that, acting on
the canal commissioner's report and the
belief that the Nicaragua route offers
the best advantages, he will push his
bill through this week. In the senate
the offer will make a vast difference.
Many senators believe in the Panama
route, and especially in tidewater level.
They will make this offer of the Panama

In reply General Bell Bays that these

they have been given passes through

Last Friday night the first meeting of
the new council was held, that bodv
having adjourned over from Wednes
day night on account of it being a legal
nouuay aay. wnen a Dill lor gravel,
amounting to $34 was presented, Coun
cilmen Koerner suggested that that the
gravel must contain gold nuggets, but
the was finally reported favorably.
it was a very tame council meeting
until John Green was leuominated by
the mayor for street commissioner. It
was a foregone conclusion, that only two
couucilnien were likelv to oppose the
confirmation of Green, "but this did not
prevent a storm from brewing. All the
old policeman had been re-appointed,
also Dresser for city attorney, and Ern
est Hands for city engineer, were put in
meir old places, and still there was not
an apparent ripple of discontent. When
Green'unatue was resented, Council
man Albright moved that the vote be by
ballot, and Councilman Koerner sec
onded the motion. The mayor ruled
the motion out of order. Mr. Koeiner
said that while he intended to support
the confirmation, he thcught the coun
cilmen should have the privilege of vot
ing as yiey please J. Tho mayor's veto
was overruled, all the councilnieu sup
porting the ballot motion, except Fran
cis. Bruce C. Curry was the onlv candi
date nominated for recorder, and re
ceived the unanimous vote. J. W. Lo
der seut in one of his characteristic
"josh" c.mmunications, but he did not
appear as a candinate. In fact, no one
appeared to want the position of city
recorder, notwithstanding that during
the past tew months the maionty of the
arrests by the police are made state
cases, and Clackamas county taxpayers
loot tne bills. As a result, the police
court does very little judicial business.
Only three cases were reported during
the past month.
C. G. Huntley was elected president
of the council by an unanimous vote.
Edward Byrnes was granted a rebate
of $06 on his saloon license, the fire hav
ing gutted the building to such an ex
tent that he was unable longer to con
tinue bueineBS. The members of the
council tnmbledoyer each other in their
efforts to vote for the rebate, realizing
the discordant sounds from the perpet
ual phonograph in the Depot hotel
building would be hushed.
The city treasurer's report Bhowed
that tne total indebtedness of the city
was abont $70,000. and the printing and
police expenses were higher than last
year. An ordinance was read the first
time making the tax levy seven mills,
which is the limit according to the
charter. -Labi year the levy, was seven
mills, and theyearprevious.it was six.
Only one committee was announced
at this meetirg that of finance, and
Koerner, Powell and Huntley were
named. This commn ee is the same as
last year, except that i'oell is substi
tuted fer Sheahan. It U not known
when the other committees will leap
pointed. It ib rumored th it Slory may
be appointed chairman of tl e street
committee. This is the most impor
tant place that can be filled by a mem
ber ol the council, and is at present held
by Councilman Albright.
E. D. Kelly is the oidy new member
of the city council, Sheahan and Story
having been re-elected.
William Roake Burned Out.
The Whittier, (Calif.) Register gives
an account of the burning of the dwel
ling occupied by William Roake and
family, formerly of this city, as follows:
"When Willjam Roake, who had been
at the oil wells, was coming down Phil
adelphia Btreet Sunday evening, he saw
the light of a rising blhze in the lower
part of town, and joining the crowd that
moved westward at the alarm of fire,
soon found the house tnat him and his
family had occupied on Pickering ave
nue ablaze, Mrs. Roake was in the
process of getting supper, and her little
two year "Id son Harris, in climbing to
his high chair, tilted the dining room
table, so that the lamp that was upon it
sua to tne tloor, and the oil that wag
spilled was soon ablaze. Mrs. Roake
seized the lamp to throw it out of doors,
but was compelled to drop it as she
reached the screen porch at the rear,
where it soon spread another blaze. She
rushed back to the dining room and
smothered ont the fire there with rugs
and got the children out of danger.
Help was soon at hand, and water was
dashed on the fire on the porch, which
was now monnting to the roof, but tnis
only served to explode a can of coal oil
there, which intensified the blaze, and
it was soon beyond coutrol by any
means at hand, Most of the household
goods were saved, but those destroyed
including a set of machinist's tools
amounted to about $175, on which there
was no insurance, bince the fire Mr
Roake and family are malting their
home with their old neighbors, Mr. and
ana Mrs. & Martin.
