The departure of Trince Koinatau, it is
believed, was arranged bo he could an
nounce in person the end of hostilities to
the Japanese armies now In China.
In the alleged offensive and defensive
alliance some of the diplomatic body here
see a realization of the prophecy recently
made by an eminent scholar, that these
two nations would eventually combine
against occidental methods and com
merce, and that their watchword would
be "Orient for Orientals,"
Old Li Hung Chang ia raid to have en
tertained a strong conviction as to the
wisdom of such a combination, believing
that by close alliance with Japan China
would secure an army strong in military
prowess, while Japan would secure in re
turn practical control of the comment of
the greatest trading people of the east.
Such a consummation at this time
would mean the destruction of European
commercial interests in the Orient. It
may be that strong opposition will soon
develop on the part of some powers to
this feature of the agreement.
Toaio, April 16. Newbpapers here an
nounce that at a conference between the
commissioners yesterday, Viceroy Li
submitted China's reply to the proposi
tions of Japan, whereupon an agreement
on the subject was reached. It is alleged
that the ace cotnmi.Tsioners will not
meet sgain until the ratifications of the
treaty ol peace have been exchanged.
Th Cuban Cause Last.
Havana, April 10. Maceo.is captured
and Cuba's last hope is gone. Crombel
has been killed. Without these two
leaders all is chaos in the insurgent
ranks and liberty's most ardent friends
admit that the Cuban cause is lost.
Spanish authorities are posting bulletins
and the loyalists in Havana are celebrat
ing the end of the revolution. Without
Crombel and Maceo there can be no real
war. On Saturday the Cuban army and
the Spanish soldiers met at Palmarito.
The rebel forces numbered 2,000 men
while that of the Spanish numbered
3,000. A desperate battle followed and
according to tfiieial reports lusted two
hours. At the end of that time the
rebels retreated and were pursued by
the Spanish troops and Maceo was
captured. His secretary was also taken
and all personal and private papers of
General Maceo were confiscated. The
battle was a hard-fouguht ono aid the
insurgents fought desperately against
odds. The Spanish soldiers resisted
with remarkable courage the onslaught
of the rebels. In tho battle a hand-to-hand
conflict occurred and a number of
Cuban oflicers, one of whom was a col
onel, were killed.
Nina Month's Figurea.
Washington, April 15. A tabular
statement, just issued by the chief of the
bureau of statistics, exhibits the imports,
exports and immigration of the United
Stales for the month and nine months
ended March 31, 1H04 and 1815. Kythls
it is shown that the exports of merchan
dise, domestic and foreign, for the nine
month were fi;L'2,7K),(;7(), as compared
with $7011,427,841 for the corresponding
months of the preceding year, while for
March there is a decreane thia year of
i-'),"?,2A'.)3. The imports of merchandise
(both dutiable and free) for the nine
months of 1S!I), aggregated 1535,55,030,
as against $480,870,478 for the nine
months of 1S!U, with an increase during
luxt month over March of last year
amounting to 13,839,182. The statement
further ahows that the excess of exports
for the nine months of 1805 was $87,234,
740, while the figures for the correspond
ing period of 1804 are $228,537,303.
March, !8!I5, shows an excess of imports
The figures giving imports and exports
of gold and bullion for the nine months
of 1805 show an excess of imports aggre
gating $311,280, as against $331,08 for
the preceding corresponding period.
Silver shows an excess of imports during
the three quarters ending March last, of
$7,387,710, compared with $4,060,822 for
the period ending March, 1804.
The following immigration statistics
are given :

Patent otfice rules 05, 134 and 08,
which were lamed February 14 last, in
consequence of the decision of the courts
in the Berliner telephone patent cases,
went into effyct today, alihough they
will not interfere with the practice of the
office for six months yet. Heretofore an
applicant for a patent whose Claim was
rejected could hold it in abeyance for
two years before altering his specifica
tions or applying for a new hearing, in
the meantime shutting out other patents
by making slight changes. At the end
of the two yearn, and repeating the pro
cess at the end of two more years, an ap
plication could be kept pending ter years,
thus prolonging the life of inventions
much beyond the contemplation of the
law. In the Berliner cases the patent
was in the office for about 15 years, and
was then granted to run for 17 years.
The courts declared this action illegal.
Th 9 new rules require applications for
appeals to be made within six months
and direct the rejection of claims that
have pended five years unless the appli
cants can show cause why the cases were
not rapidly prosecuted.

Tacoma, April 12. Disheartened by
financial difficulties and his removal
from an honored position, Paul Schulze,
general land agent of the Northern Pacific
railroad, kilted himself today at 11:30
o'clock. He put 38-calibre bullet
through bis own head with a Smith &
Wesson revolver. The body was not
found until 3 :45 p. m., and it was nearly
5 o'clock before the coroner was notified.
The news became public after 6 o'clock
and greatly surprised the city .

WEATHER CHOP BULLETIN NO 8.
Of the Oregon Slate. Weather Service
for Week Ending April 10, 1S05.
Weather General showers occured on
the 10th and 14th, in amounts from .10
to .22 of an inch. The minium tempera
ture was to the frost point on tne 11th
in all counties and from 27 to 30 degrees
in Douglas, Josephine and Jackson
counties. The maximum temperatures
ranged from 52 to 75 degrees, about 7
degrees higher than the preceding week
Though the minimum temperatures
were lower than the preceding weex.
The temperature and rainfall were both
deficient. Strong winds prevailed for
several days in the forepart of the week
but no damage was done.
Crops The frosts have, so far, done
little, if any damage. ' Whiles freezing
temperature prevailed in some fruit sec
tions on the llth and many varieties of
fruits were in full bloom, yet, fog and
clouds afforded protection to the fruit,
preventing injury. The fruit in general,
can be said to be free from injury, so far,
from frost. Peaches are in full bloom
in every county, or the bloom has
already fallen. Cherries, plums, and
prunes are in full bloom. Fruit ia set
on strawberry vines, on current and
gooseberry bushes. Plowing and seed
ing on higher ground is almost done, on
the low land it is retarded owing to the
ground being too wet. Fall sown grain
is becoming yellow in spots, indicating a
need of warmth and sunshine. Hops
are making a very healthful giowth and
many new yards are being prepared for
the growth of the vines. Considerable
flax is being sown. Spraying of trnit
trees, especially aprles, ia being ex
tensively done. Grass is growing, af
fording excellent feed for stock. Lamb
ing continues with the same large per
centage being saved. So tar, everything
is favorable for the year's agricultural
product being a full crop.
Weather A few light showers or
sprinkles of rain fell, but not sufficient
to lay the dust. The winds have been
dry and of a velocity higher than usual.
The maximum terniieratnres have
ranged 48 to 72 deg. Ttie minimun from
34 to 52 deg. and below the freezing
point south of the Blue mountains.
Crops The lack of sufficient rainfall
is already being felt. The ground is
dry and spring sown grain needs rain to
cause it to germinate. Due to the dry
season, and toother causes, many farm
ers have been prevented from sowing as
much grain as usual. In some counties
this decrease will be considerable. In
Umatilla and Union counties the grain
croD appears to be in the best condition
at the present time. The marked defi
ciency in rainfall will seriously injure
the grain crop nnlese copious rains
should occur in May and Jnne. The
rainfall of t iese two months determines
the cereal crop of the veai. In the
Columbia river valley the fruit crop is,
uninjured by weather condition; the
fruit trees are in full bloom and in some
sections over their blooming period.
The trees at present indicate large yields.
The berries are growing and thriving
and are in good condition. Vegetables
are having only a fair growth, needing
moisture and warmth. Lambing con
tinued with success. The shearing of
sheep has commenced and some small
lots of wool have been received at The
Dalles, Pendleton and Heppner, all of
as good quality as was ever clipped.
To the south of mountains, except in
the Grande Ronde valley which is more
advanced, the fruit trees are swelling
their buds. The range grass is good and
stock in good condition. While the fruit
crop is very promising, the general crop
is in danger from drouth.
