Some bova this evening observed agang
of Chinamen land at Riley's landing,
three mile north of town. It was about
dusk and the youngsters at once notified
Collector of Customs Wasson. The
latter summoned a force of inspectors,
and, placing himself at their head, made
a thorough seoreh of all the avenues lead
ing to town. As a result, seven Celes
tials were captured, Wasson himself
coraling four, Inspector Hammond
catching two and Deputy Sheriff Jones
one. It is said that the steamer Burt
whose owner recently published an
affidavit that Special Agent of the Treas
ury Department Mulkey had made over
tures to him to smuggle Mongol

"'hold your wheat" circular. It presents
the usual array of figures to show the
farmes will profit by following the advice
laid down therein. It holds that Russia
is entirely out of the race; that India is
practically so, and that present and
future deliveries from the farmers will
fill but a small portion of the require
ments. It does not advise the farmers
to create any unnecessary scarcity or re
pudiate debts, but to sell only what he
is obliged to, when the receipts are large
and increasing, and when they are on
the decline, to sell a certain portion each
month. The exporting copacity of the
United States is figured at 140,000,000
bushels more than last year, which falls.

deficit. This 140,000,000 bushels would
supply Europe with bread for nineteen

raot get twice what is now offered for his

It is said ttmt Mr, HowelU, who is
perl i up I he foreiuoet of living Amcri.an
novelists, has long had in mind a story
of Americ an girl-lite which he believes
will be the best piece of work he lias
ever done The g cat novelist has now
la-en induced to write out the story, and
at present he is at work upon it. It is
a novel unliae any which Mr. ilowella
has ever written. It deals entirely with
the struggles of a Western girl who goes
to New York, and the story will have
about it all the flavor which attaches to
a tale of city life with a young girl as
the central heroine. Heretofore all of
Mr. Howells's novels have gone to the
Harpers, but this special girls' novel
will be printed during H'.)2 in The
Ladies Home Journal, of t'hiladelphia.
the publishers of w hich have bought the
exclusive rights to the story from Mr.
Unwell". The novel is to be beautifully
illustrated, and Mr. Howells himself
believes that it will be as attractive a
story as any with which bis name lias
Sbattlk, Dec.ll The Mechanics' Mill
company's large factory on the tide flats
was burned last night, but the big saw
mill attached was saved. For a time
the Seattle Boiler works, marine ways,
sawmill of the Seattle Dry Dock and Ship
Building company, the tug Bix, which
was on the ways, and Moran Bros.,
foundry and machine shop were in
imminent panger. All this property is
over, the tide flats, nearly half a mile
from the shore line, and is only reached
by wharves and bridges. The city water
mains have not been extended to these
factories and only small private mains
were available. The Are-boat saved the
sawmill. The loss of tile Mechanics
Mill company is $140,000, with an insur
ance of (28,000.
Nkw York, Dec. 11. In an inter
view with a correspondent Senator Stan
ford says: "All reports of any negotia
tions for the Presidency are without
foundation. I have been a republican
from the foundation of the party. No
party, it seems to me, can hope for suc
cess which depends largely upon a
foreign element that has not assimilated
with American ideas, and that is with
out interest in the progress and prosper
ity of the nation . But I am a partisan
and believe the great issue of the
coming campaign will be the money
question, and that upon the solution of
this question will depend not only the
welfare of the country, but the success
of the party that takes it up."
The Hop Product.
Pori'Land, Dec. 15. R: B. Wilson,
traveling freight agent of the Northern
Pacific, returned yesterday from a tour
of the valley towns He has been
among the hop dealers a good deal, and
estimates the product yet unshipped of
the season's crop at 2500 bales, out of
an original 18,000. Mr. Wilson says the
newspaper estimates of 4,750,000 pounds
for the season's hop product is too large.
One dealer carried over a large number
of bales from last year. He could have
sold them for 37 1 cents, but wanted 40
cents. The highest he has been offered
this year is 9 cents.
The Mexican Volcano.
Citv or Mkxico, Dec. 14. The govern-
ment fears that villages adjacent to the
volcano of Colima will share the fate of
Pompeii, and has ordered the villagers
to abandon their glomes and move to
places of safety. The volcano is now
vomiting great volumes of lava, ashes
and smoke, and the country for miles
around is illuminated by a grand dis
play. Strong winds carry the ashes a
distance-of 400 miles. A large party of
scientists from various parts of Mexico
has gone to visit the grand phenomenon.
