aaya that the Chineae offieial report of
the engagement atatea that only 50 ahota
were exchanged lattwuen the Japaneac
warahip and the forla. Tho report adda
that one of the Japaneae ships waa hit
thre times and another one once. The
fire of the warHhii did no damage to
the fort. The Japanese squadron con
(tinted of twenty veaaela. It is not defi
nitely known how many of the fleet
were men-of-war. The warships drew
up in line of battle eft" the portaide and
nnd fire early Friday morning.
There were no Chineae warahips in the :
vicinity, and the engagement was en- j
tirely between the Japanese men-of-war!
and the fort. The whereabouts of the
Chineae Rout was unknown. The forts, ,
bowevor. weie able, without much dif-'
ficultv, to repulae the attack. About!
SO allots were rzehanuml. hnt no
material damage was done on either side.
The soldiers manning the guns of the
fortifications showed themselves to be
lamentably deficient in marksmanship.
Moat of their shots were ill-directed, the
shells either falling short of the vessel
aimed t,' or going wide .of the mark.
! When tho fleet withdrew it went to Fort
Arthur, which place it attacked Friday
evening. Little, if any, damage waa
done. The operations are not regarded
as having been attempts to conquer Wei-IIai-Wei
or Fort Arthur, but simply
ruses on the part of 'he Japanese com
mkndcr to ascertain the exact position
and strength of the Chinese guns at the
two plates. Thursday last two small
gunboats were sighted going at full speed
in the direction of Tien Tain.

RosKiii Bo, Or., Aug. 13 About 3 P.
M. today at Oukland, Or., Fred Kincaid,
about 21 years of age, was shot and
killed by 8am Brown, about the same
sge. Kincaul was engaged in tearing ,
down a building about a half a block j
from his home, and Brown had sent a i
small brother of Kincald's to him several '
times for him to come home as ho wanted
to see him. Kincaid being busy said he
would not go, but the last time the boy
said Brown was going away and wanted
to see him . Kincaid left his work and
started up the street. He had gone a
short diatance when he met Brown.
When within sis feet, Brown pulled an
American bull-dog pintol from his pocket
and shot Kincaid in the left breast.
Kincaid turned and ran into a black
smith shop, Brown firing two more shots
without effect. Kincaid was assisted to
his houae about seventy-five feet away
where he died within ten minutes after
being shot. Brown hails from Bandon,
Or., having been employed on the farm
of Fen Sotilherlin, near Oakland for over
s year. It seems they have been paying
attention to a Miss Mattoon. Brown

ington, who committed him to the county

Woodland, Cab, Aug. 13 At 1
o'clock today Judge Fisher rendered a
decision in the train-wrecking case. He
refuted to allow the motion of dismissal,
and said the evidence warranted the
holding of all five defendants to appear
before the superior court. Mrs. Knox
was visibly affected by the judge's de
cision, and cried bitterly during the
course of the judge's remarks. The case
is postponed until the 21st ult., when the
defense will begin its testimony. Over
350 witnesses have been subpoenaed.

Ottawa, Ontario, Aug. 6. Professor
Kzekiel Wiggins, the weather prophet,
concurs the opinion expressed in some
quarters that the bright projections on
Mars, seen by M . Javelle at the Nice
Observatory on July 28th, la a signal
from the Maraians to the people of the
earth. lie said: There is the beat sci
entific eviJence to prove that man ia a
native of Mars and lived millions of years
before he was transplanted to earth,
leaving the greater part of the human
family behind. The Maraians regard us
as their loat brethren and have been
searching for us for thousands of years.
They have been eHpecially hopeful since
they saw the electric light in our
cities. We will tie able to converse with
them by signal before another century
"It Is much easier for the Maraians to
see our signals than for ua to see theirs,
for the earth appears to them to wax and
wane like the moon, so that they can ess-
ily see lights on our dark hemisphere,
while their plane always has its light
aide toward us."
Eviction ia Pallmaa.
Chicago, Aug. 12. Mr. Pullman has
decided to evict hia striking tenants.
He made up hia mind yesterday. The
legal papers which must be served on
the strikers as a preliminary to setting
their goods into the street, were under

The reason given for evicting the strikers
is that the honses are needed by the new
workmen who have taken the places of
the stikera. About 15C0 strikers are tea.

them are men with larg? families. Few,
if any of them, have paid a dollar ot rent

Senate Tariff Dill With Its G3l Amend
ments Lay Orer WIIhoii's
Wasiii.voton, Aug. 13. The long strug
gle over the tariff bill came to a close at
6 o'clock this evening, when the house
by a vole of 102 to 105 decided to dis
charg the hon-e conferrws fmra further
consideration of the bill, receded from
its opposition to the C4 senate amend
ments and agreed to the same. It waa
a complete victory for the senate. The
houae made an abnolute surrender. The
remit grew directly out of the aen na
tional course of events at the senate end
of the capitol, precipitated by Senator
Hill Friday. Up to that time the house
conferrees had stood firmly againat the
senate amendments, especially on the
i three disputed schedules coal, iron ore
, and augur and the temper and voice of
I the house was for war to the end. But
the indications that the democrats of the
: senate might be able to longer hold a
I majority of votera in line for the senate
bill and the bill be thus placed in jeop
' ardy forced the houne democrats to im
J meditate action. The democratic confer
rees of the house at laat admitted they
i were beaten, and another vote could not
I be risked in the senate. It must be the
J senate bill or no bill. The whole ques
tion was precipitated with the caucus
I held just before the house convened to
day, at which, after a thorough review
of the situation, and Sieeches in favor
of receding by Speaker Crisp, Chairman
I Wilson and others, it waa decided to
take the senate bill and afterwards pass
; separate bills placing coal, iron ore, su-
gar and barb wire on the free liat, and
by so doing, place the house on record,
j and, at least, partially overcome the hn
j initiation involved in its defeat. The
i program arranged in the cauens was car-
ried out to the letter in the house after a
I special order.
j The scenes in the chamber throughout
the day and evening were exciting, and
t at times sensational. The galleries were
j picked, and the numbers applauded and
cheered their respective leaders to the
echo. Under the tonus of the order only
two hours were allowed for debate on
the main proposition to recede from and
agree to the senate amendments to the
tariff bill. A parliamentary skirmish
preceded the pitched battle, but the
points of order raised by the republicans
were swept aside. The speaker ruled
the house with an iron baud. The prin
cipal speeches for and against the main
proposition were made by Wilson and
Crisp, on the one hand and ex-speaker
Reed and Burroughs on the other.
There was no time for preparing, and all
the speeches were hot from the forge of
the brain and were greeted with rounds
of cheers and applause. Bourke Cock
ran of New York, and Tarnsey of Mis
souri, both democratic members of the
ways and means committee, delivered
scathing and sensational speehes de
nouncing the surrender of the house as
cowardlyand indefensible. The speaker
replied to Cochran, whose effort was a
brilliant one, with such temper that the
latter took it as a personal affront,
although the speaker disclaimed such
intention, and made a viscious lunge at
There was no attempt on the part of
the democratic leaders to claim a victory.
All admitted they were accepting the in
evitable, justifying their action on the
ground that the senate bill was better
than the McKlnley law. The most
startling feature of the day, perhaps,
was Mr. Cockrans eloquent appeal to
Chairman Wilson to name the demosrats
in the senate who threatened the defeat
of all tariff legislation if the attempt to
adjust differences between the two
houses was persisted in, but Wilson
made no response.
When the vote came to be taken at ft
o'clock, 13 democrats, Moses, of Georgia ;
Bartlett, Cockran, Hendrix, Dunphy
and Covert, of New York j Davy, Meyer,
and Frice,-of Louisiana; Everett, of Mas
sachusetts; Gorman, of Michigan ; John
son, of Ohio; and Tarnsey, ol Missouri,
voted with the republicans against the
resolution. The democrats then put
through, one after another, what the re
publicans described as the popgun bills,
placing coal iron ore, sugar and barb
wire on the free list, and which, in the
debate, they maintaiued would be pro
posed only to go to death in the senate.
Pullman Employes Betnrning.
Chicago, Aug. 13, The gates of the
Pullman Company's plant were besieged
this morning by a host of striking em
ployes seeking work. At nine o'clock
the foreman found be had 1788 men. All
the old employes will get their places
back until a full quota is at work.
