General News as Gathered
Brief Resume of Jhe More Important Happenings of the
Week in Oregon and Elsewhere.
Governor Pennypacker has appointed
Attorney General Knox to the vacancy
caused 'by the death of Senator Quay.
It ii a matter of considerable surprise
that Mr. Knox Bought this position ami
was willing to resign his position in the
Cabinet to accept it. The President is
willing to accept the resignation s he
believes Knox can be of greater service
in Congress than in the Cabinet, owing
to the trust legislation which will be
brought up in the next few years.
New Postmaster for Portland.
J. W. Minto has been appointed post
master at Portland to take the place of
Bancroft, who wired bis resignation last
Tuesday, It is said that James E. Hunt
was the choice of Senator Mitchell but
be did not meet the approval of the postmaster-general.
Bancroft's resignation grew out of the
inspector's reports, of which three had
been made. The main point of dissatis
faction with Bancroft seems to have
been that be used money belonging to
the office, leaving I. 0. II. slips in the
till. It is also said that he had no exec
utive ability. This latter is denied by
his friends, who point to his long ser
vice with the Southern Pacific company
as proof of his possessing executive qual
ities. The new appointee, J. W. Minto, is
well known, he having held public office
more or less for many years. At the
time of bis appointment he was deputy
collector of customs at Portland.
To Destroy Union.
The Citizens' Alliance is endeavoring
to destroy Unionism in the Cripple
Creek region. Its committees have
presented the following pledge to all the
business houses :
"We, the undersigned, merchants of
the Cripple Creek district and employ
ers of help, hereby agree not to employ
help of any kind that is in any way con
cerned with the Trades Assembly of the
American Federation of Labor, or the
western federation or Miners or kin

step yet taken by the Alliance since it
secured the upper hold in the district,
and its enforcement will affect 3000 men
and women now affiliated with the var
ious anions. Among the unions that
will be affected oy the new movement
are the Clerks, Cooks and W alters, Bar
tenders, Carpenters, Electricians, Train
men and Stone and Brick Masons.
The unionists assert they will fkht
the movement to a finish.

On complaint of Professor Drew,
fifteen Salem saloonkeepers were ar

Heretofore the Sheriff has boarded the

recent election opened the eyes of the
commissioners to the fact t1 at the coun

St. Louis is in size the fourth city of
the Uoitsd States, with an estimated
population of near 700,000. The census
returns of 1900 show 675,238. The great
ness of the citv is based on its location
3.1 the heart of the Mississippi valley, in
the agricultural center of the continent.
While wealthy, prosperous and perma
nent, St. Louis is not altogether beauti
ful and up -to-date. Some parts of the
city are beautiful to look upon. There
are several beautiful parks, including
Forest park, the location of the exposi
tion. There are many fine residences,
substantial business blocks and well
kept streets. But in general the town is

"There are unexplored lauds right at
home. Why, here in St. Louis there
are alleys that the board of health has
never discovered." The audience ap
preciated the aptness of the remark.
The streets here are of all kinds and
conditions, narrow and broad,- crooked
and straight, short and long, clean and
dirty, well paved, poorly pav ed and un
pavsd. Blocks are of many sizes. The
corners are well marked, there are one
hundred numbers to each block and it is
not a ditncuit task for the average
stranger to keep his bearings.
