Erutoi Wjnai Bayi rTrooble Hay Eaase u a Coateqaenoe. Chii'auo, March 13. The well-known economist and financier, Erastua Wy niau, w ho is viaiting here, talks serious ly ol war between England and the United States, as an outcome of the Uehring sea complication. He said today, 'ran interview. kTlie Entfliah government is ender tremendoua praaure from Canada, wWh is i l the mood to insiat that the Cinad'....i sealers he protex-ted and given dp. ul rights with the Americans on the high seas. Besides, the coming contest in England makes it incumbent that a diversion of of some kind be created to secure a Tory success at the polls. It ia not improbable a vigoious foreign policy will cam trouble during the coming "uininer, in which the peace of the world may bo threatened. Active hos tilities are doubtful, but many a war has sprung from less serious cause. The threat of retaliation in the shape -of the abolition of the bonding privilege, which allows goods destined to Canada tu pass through the United States with out duties and vice yerea, would be a two-edged weapon, far more hurtful to the cities of the United States than to Camilla. II thiB retaliatory measure is carried out , Canada, after suffering the terrible oxclusion implied by the McKin ley bill, will only solidify her adhesion to her British connections and strengthen her determination to keep independent of the United States. C00ST OF APPEALS. Soma Important Oaaei Pertaining to Oregoa Iatereita are Decided. San Francisco, March 10 The United States circuit court of appeals upheld the United States district court of Oregon j in two of its decisions today. One was the case of Edwin Morton et al., vs. Matiiias Jensen et al. Plaintiffs asserted that the defendants had infringed his patents for putting a can head onto automatically filled cans. The machine comprised about forty patents, all of which Morton claimed had been in fringed by Jensen and his friends. United States District Judge Peady held that the patents had doen infringed, and gave judgement for the plaintifls. The court of appeals upheld the decision on all piinciiinl points. Two of minor patents were held to be not original. The master in chancery in Portland will assess the damages. Thia decision will cll'i'ct all canneries on the Columbia river. In the case of the United States vs. the California and Oregon Land company, the court dismissed the appeal of the United States. Judge llnnford dissented. The original com plaint asked that patents issued to the Oregon Central Military Road company be set aside, us the latter had not carried out the contract. The road had not been built.

In all probability, Mondny will be devoted to the biminena of Ihe l;Htrii't of Columbia, Hand the tariff will occupy the rent of the week, tifileaa Fri day Mhould be devoted to the private calendar.

Many of them, it is true, are private relief billa, but some are of importance, and are sure to pro voke a uiacuasion when brought up.

NATIONAL POLITICS Watlprson Call) on ClevHutH! to WllhilruH from theltiicc. HIT ( I.F.VKLAM) STAYS WITH IT. Hey kilted In a Prize Fitch I in Portland Ot.ier Matter of (m'iii'I'iiI New. Ei t CincA'io, March 11. Ifenry Wattrtr son, is an authorized interview today, virtually called uiion Cleveland to with draw from the presidential race. Wat terson said the nomination of the ex president would lie suicidal for the dem ocratic party. Hill, too, be believed had dog his own political grave in New York, and be regards the conflict aa practically irreconcilable. The party, he says, must come west lor a candidate, or seek him in Massachusetts, Pennsyl vania or Maryland. In practically call ing upon Cleveland to withdraw, Wat terson ra'ber scored that gentleman. Mr. Watteraon said : " I never indulge very much in hero woranip, and any good democrat -whom tlie national con vention may see fit to nominate will suit me. If I had to put a man in the While House, he would be Mr. Carlisle. I regard him the best equipped demo crat in public life. He was a leading democratic tariff battler in congress when Cleveland was mayor of Buffalo. After Carlisle, anybody will suit if be does not come from New York. I ob ject to a New Yorker because the fac tions there have made the nomination of any New Yorker impossible. J am most sincerely Cleveland's triend, but I contest the notion that he is our sole, our only, our most original Moses in the matter of tariff reform. He is aa good a tariff reformer aa any body, but but no better than half a dozen others who have equal claim with him to public confidence. I take it for granted that he will in due time withdraw his name." Being asked whom he thought were available candidates, Watterson men tioned, besides Carlisle, Palmer, Boi-e, Russell. Patterson and Gorman. In act, said be, the woods is full of availa ble candidates. KILLED IS A PRIZEFIGHT. Two Portland Boys Engage In a Fatal Fiatio Encounter. Portland, Or.
