There i aleo another source of annoyance
in connection with this sa. itary question

Washington, May 17. President
Harrison has received from Italy and
Austria acceptances of the invitation to
participate in the international monetary
conference. The acceptance of Italy is
especially pleasing to the administration,
as. on account of its position as the head
of the Latin Union, it will influence the
remaining nations to join the conference.
It is positively known that invitations
were fordwardod to all the Euroean
powers except Turkey, and some talk
lias been caused by the fact that the
invitations wore sent by mail instead of
by cuble as was intended. Keplies from
the remaining nations will probably be
received shortly. It is the belief of
those best acquainted with the progress
ot the negotiations that the international
monetary conference will convene
about the 1st of July.

It Is Located on the Last Ituuk of the
n illumette a Short DUbince
Helow Oregon City.
The discovery of a vein of heiuati'e
iron ore on the Staub place on the eat
bank of the river al-out two and a half
mile below Oregon City was mentioned
in the Extcki-isk two weeks ago. There
was then every indication of a rich find
but it was deemed beet to await more
conclusive developeinenU before treat
ing the mine as a certainty.
Tho discovery was made br W. T.
Welch who waa looking for brick clay.
His son William II. Welch lollowed up
the iron lead, got a ten-years lease of
the proerty and proceeded to develop
the find. The outcropping was dis
covered in the bank of the river alsiut
eighteen feet below the surface of the
ground. Ihe strata dipped back from
the river at an angle of about forty-five
degrees. A tunnel was driven in forty
feet on the vein and several tons of ore
lakeu out when the high water Monday
flooded the mine and compelled the ces
sation of work in the tunnel. Now ar
rangements are being made for sinking
a shaft to inttrsect the ore vein a short
distance back from the river bank.
This will do away with the danger of
Hooding from the river.
The large number of samples of ore
from the new mine have been assayed
by the chemist at the Oswego iron
works and the average is filty-six per
cent of uieull.c iron. The Oswego
mi-es do not exceed an average ot
thirty-three per cent iron. But next
week a large quantity will be taken to
to the Oswego furnace and the results of
practical reduction will be observed.
There is no question, however, that the
ore is very high giade,
William H. Welch has leased the
tract of 120 acres on which the new
mine is located for len years and is to
pay eight cents a ton for the ore re
moved. So he is possessed of a valua
ble propcty.
An offer of (10.009 has been made by
Portland panics for th new mine, or,
rather, for Welch's lease. He thinks it
worth more money, however. The
negotiations are still on and it is likely
that an agreement will be reached in a
few days that will result in the working
of the mine on a large scale. It is so
I convenient to the river that the trans
portation for ore could not be better. It
il even more convenient to the Oswego
smelier than the Oswego company's own
Qearjpi the Democratic Ticket.
. Washington, May 15. The corres
pondent of the New York World sends
the following tonight: A strong move
meut is on foot looking to the nomina
tion of Representative Geary, of Cal
isornia, for vice-president on tne demo
cratic ticket. The far west has no
presidential candid.de, and the object of
putting G.eary foreward is the Lope that
he will be able to carry the twenty
electoral votes of California, Nevada,
Oregon and Washington for the whole
ticket. The Cleveland men here, who
think (he plan feasible, say with the
Geary contribution to the strength of
the ticket the renomination of the ex
president would be sufficient without
regard to New York's electoral vote.
