San Francisco, July 28 Warren
Green, of Sonoma county, who is one of j
the most uxperienced wool-growers in
Northern California, says that, owing to
democratic tinkering with the tariff and
the uncertainty regarding the future, tlm
wool industry is at a low ebb in this slate.
He has reduced his own stock to about
2000 head, and observes that many other
wool-growers are doiug likewise. He
"As a general thing, there is no .rolit
in raising sheep for mutton. Many sheep
men are gradually working into the cat
tle business. On a good many ranges
there is much more money in raising cat
tle than sheep, at the present prices for
wool and beef." In fact, there is no pro
fit hi wool now for anybody, though many
growers are holding on to their flocks in
the hope of better times."

some nntortnnate Chinese soldiers, but
all foreigners are reported killed. The
Japanese are said to have behaved with
ntter disregard of the laws of civilized
Shanghai, Ju'y 31. -News has just
reached here of a desperate battle be-'
tween tbe fleets of China and Japan, in
which the chinese were defeated and the
Chen Yuen, the largest battleship but
one in the Chinese semce, was sunk
and two other large Chinese ves-iels,
said to be first class cruisers, captured or
destroyed, The battle was hotly con
tested, but the Japanese appeared to
have handled their guns, ships and tor
pedoes with more skill than the Chinese.
The Chinese fl et engaged carried nearly
1000 men and a large number are re
ported killed or drowned. Later dis
patches say that few if any of the Chinese
engaged in the battle escaped. Two
German officers in command of the Chen
Yuen are reported to have met death,
with the crew.
The news of the battle was received
here by private telegram from Tien-Tsin.
If the report is true, of which there ia
little doubt, it means an end has been
put to China's fighting on the seas. The
Chen Yuen must have started from Takn
after leaving the Chinese transports
The two Chinese cruisers supposed to
have been captured or destroyed during
tbe engagement, which ended so fatally
for the Chen Yuen are supposed to be
the Chen Yuen and the Foo Ching. The
Chen Yuen was a protected cruiser,
built at Emawick, England. She had a
displacement of 2300 tons. Her artna-'
inent consisted of three 8 '4 inch Krupp
and two 6-inch Armstrongs, protected
by splinter-proof shields, several 8
pounder rapid firing Hotclikisa grans,
six gatling and four torpedo tubes.
The Foo Ching was also an English
built protected cruiser, very much similar
to the Chen Yuen. She had a displace
ment of 2500 tons, was built of steel in
1S80, and carried ten gans of about the
same caliber as thoje carried by the
London, Aug. 1. A dispatch just re
ceived says Japan made a formal dec
laration of war upon China today. Lord
Kimberly, upon receipt of notice from
the Japanese minister that war had been
declared wired all the British repre
sentatives abroad to warn the captains
of vessels of the fact in order that they
might form their cargoes accordingly.
Any contraband wear comprise 1 in the
cargoes will be handled at the risk of the
Tokio, Aug. 1. The Japanese gov
ernment has informed representative
of the foreign powers here that a state
of war exists between Japan and China.
This is regarded as equivalent to a decla
ration of war.

Chicago, Aug. 1. The lumber dis
trict of Chicago was tonight visited by
one of the most disasteroua tires in its
history, and the loss will probably foot
npover $1,500,000, although it will be
twenty-four hours before the damage
can be estimated with accuracy.
A few days ago, says the Albany Her
ald, Mr. Patrick Callahan, father of
Jas. Callahan of this city, returned after
an absence of nearly twenty years. He
left Albany in 1874 for California and
afterwards went to Idaho, where it was
reported he was killed in the mines.
His wife, who died last November, be
lieved him dead and bis children knew
no different untikhis unexpected return.
He has been living on his farm near La
fayette for several years. He went on
to Corvallis and Yaquina to see his other
