Wasiii.notos, Oct., 3. The third an
nual report of Coiiiiniwdoner Taylor was
handed to tho secretary of the interior
today. The report says of the railroad
situation that for the past year there has
been an increase in gross receipts, but a
falling off in net earnings, owing to
increased cornietition. The net earn
ings of the roails indebted to the govern
ment show a slight decrease over last year
year, but the roads are paying into treas
ury each year all that the law requires
them to pay. Full and detailed state
ments aro given, showing the financial
condition of the companies. The state
ments of the bonded roads, for the vear
for which settlements were made, were :

The increase in the debts of the
bonded roads is not owing to the failure
of the companies to comply with the
law. They pay yearly all the law re
quires them to pay. The trouble is the
percentages, required by law to be paid,
do not create a sum equal to the interest
the government has to pay on the sub

London, Oct. 6. roultney Bigelow, of
the New York Canoe Club, ho lias
been making a long canoe trip in Soutb
jern Europe, has returned to this city
ttftor a three months' absence. In an
'interview Bigelow says : "The situation
of affairs of Kttssia, so far as an anti
foreign crusade is concerned, is more
serious than reported. The anti-Jewish
crusade is only a small portion of the
general movement existing against for
eigners in Kussia. Tho Jews, perhaps,
are the lightest sufferers. The Ger
mans and Poles, all non-mmbers of
the Kussian Church, ore persecuted.
Thesii K'oplo, with those who have
money invested in lands, factories, etc.,
are harassed and oppressed to a degree
which renders business impossible, and
the loss of their proerty is one ol the
inevitable consequences. There are
150,000 Kussian soldiers on the Rou
manian frontier, and the general result
of the observations I have bad with
public and military officials confirms
mo in the belief that Russia is not only
prepared for war, but anxious for bii
opportunity of declaring war."

Marian.na, Ark., Oet. 3. After scour
ing tho woods for a distance of about
forty-five miles in search of the riotous
cotton pickers, Sheriff Derrick's posse
returned here yesterday. They brought
with them three negroes, as expected.
There is no truth in tho reports sent out
from HolenA that nine men had been
taken from the sheriff and lynched. So
fur as know, Kd Peyton, who was shot
by the officers while in the cane-brake
Tuesday, and Ben Patterson, who was
taken from Deputy Mills, and lynched
Wedaesday night, were the only ones
killed, Ollicors who arrived yesterday
say tliat two mere prisoners were in
charge of the officors, who were to bring
thorn over today, but they think it likely
both of them will be lynched before they
reach this place. Everything is now
quiet at the scene of the rioting. Cotton
picking is going on steadily.

London Oct., 6. The trade unions and
ultra liberals have been agitating the
matter of organizing a new political party
in the kingdom and steps looking to
that end were taken at public meetings
bold last week. The platform of the
proposed new party includos triennial
parliiuont; the payment of salaries to
members of parliament, as well as the
reinbnrsomont of election expenses on
secret ballots; the legalization of the
eight-hour day in nil trades, wherein a
majority of tho workers do not object ;
tho election ot burgossess j the abolition
of hereditary land laws and the national
ization of tho land, and home rulo for
Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Tho
movements is doubtless destined to play
an important part in the immediate
future of Knglish polities.
The 'ajcIe Hallway.
Sai.km, Or., Oct., 6. Governor Pen
n oyer and SUteTreasurer Metcban have
returned from the Cascades, where they
inspected the work on the portage rail
way, and investigated the charges re
cently made against C.J.Farley, chief
of construction of the railway. Govenor
Pennoyer says so far as they have ex
amined into the charges tiiey find them
unfounded. Farley will complete the
road without an extra appropriation.
When asked about the protress of the
work, Governor Pennoyer said : ''The
low water haB delayed the work materi
ally, but Farley informs me that the
road will be ready for operation about
next Saturday. The locomotive will ar
rive in about ten days, and then the rail
way will be in full operation.

Tacoma, Wash., Oct. 3. A meeting
of officers of the National Guard of
Washington was held in Tacotna this
afternoon. An organization was per
fected, aeonstitution adopted and resolu
tions passed asking the resignation of
Adjutant-General O'Brien. For a long
time there has been much friction be
tween O'Brien and the other officers,
culminating in the personal encounter
between O'Brien and Colonel J. C.
Haineshbout two weeks ago. The other
officers are nearly all against O'Brien.
The resolutions recite that he has stood
in the way of the advancement of the
militia, which had been generously pro
vided for by the state.
Were It not for the feeders the Union Pacific
would yield no net earnings whatever, and
the property would not be worth the amount of
lutlrit mortgage bonds
The commission 3r urges very strongly
and at considerable length the great
necessity for some action to be taken
looking to a settlement between the
bonded roads and the government. Re
garding tli is he says :
I have little doubt of the ability of the princi
pal bonded road a to eventually meet ell their
obligations to the government, btu the sitm nf
these debt la apparently beyond the pe-Mbii
ity of payment In money at their maturity.
Some plan for refunding must be devised in
order to give them time. The course of the
government should be that which a practical
business man would pursue with private debt'
or in a similar situation.
The commissioner recommends that
the department appoint a commission
of not over three members and to be
persons in the government's employ, to
consider the situation, confer with the
railway companies and report their con
clusions to congress. If such an adjust
ment could lie agreed upon as would se
cure to the government the moneys due
it, and not seriously affect the business
or credit of the railways, or burden the
traffic and binder the development of
sections tributary to tlietn, greater pub
lic good would be accomplished. Surely
the magnitude of the interests involved
in this controversy may well command
the early attention of congress.

Salkm, Or. , Oct. 3. The slate of Ore
gon is about to become plaintiff in a suit
in which Baker county will become de
fendant. The state seeks the payment
of taxes due from Baker county for the
several years since and including 1873.
Baker county owes $12,245. This has
accrued from year to year, each remit
tance to the state treasurer being a little
less than the amount due. Malheur
county owes $400 ; Tillamook $500, and
Umatilla and Union small sums. Ma
rion is charged with $S00. The sums are
in dispute, and have been so for years

to establish a yard at some convenient

Washington, Oct., 5. Henry C.
McLean, chief clerk of the architect's
office in the treasury, has returned from
the Pacific coast. He has not uiade
any report upon the Portland public
building site, although he has had a
conference with Secretary Foster about
it today. McLean is of the opinion that
a high price is wanted for Portland real
estate, and it may be deemed advisable
to re-advertise for bids on account of the
high holdings of the sites offered.
