stopping at Salem for a few days,

English sporting gentlemen of

from the lands he has passed,

He leaves here this week for San

miles a day when on the road and
carries about forty pounds of bag

when he cannot find a hotel con

quaintacces are probably more

and of these he will leave not a few
at the capital of Oregon .
Chicago, Nov. 25. Train rob

railroad and-express .companies
operating fron headquarters scat

Local officials of some of the roads
directly interested, through inci
dents of this character which are of
recent origin, have been spurred to
drastic measures; The Davenport
robbery of the fast Chicago Rock
Island & Pacific train was the
straw that broke the camels back.
The railroad companies, in connec
tion with the United Express Com

ward of $5ooo for the arrest and
conviction of the men who robbed
the train early Saturday morning

of Mr MacVeagh, who was no less
surprised than Mr Mitchell himself
at the turn affairs took today.

met with a tragic death in Paris,
made a statement for publication
today in which he paid a high tri

former wife. He explained that
their divorce was brought about by
their fondness for music, Mrs Gore
absenting herself from home for
months at a time with the purpose
of seeking a musical education.

the history of the world. It was
much commented on in banking
circles, causing much uneasiness
among exporters and merchants
of this country doing business with
China and other points in the far
East. To the bankers, however,
the most significant news of the
day were the cable advices to the

Coincident also with this devel

Th City of Panama arrived from

fciatetook Rydzewski to the scene
ae occurrence and compelled

anair, mis Deing done uuder the
practice of the French law, which
requires the reconstruction of the
tragedy in the presence of the offi
cials under exactly the same con
ditions as it wa3 originally enact
ed. The chamber was arranged as on
Uhe night of the fatality, and the
same weapon was placed in Ryde
wski hand to act out his version.
As far as known, the prisoner went
through the ordeal without waver
ing from his first story of the ac
cidental fall of the revolver,
De Rydzewki renacted the final
spene, giving complete details as to
the position of Mrs Gore and him
self. He said that he was lying on
the bed fully dressed, while Mrs
Gore was sitting on the foot of the

thrown backward on the feather
quilt, which had been rolled to
form a cushion. Wishing to take
something from the night table
he said, he knocked off the revolver
which went off and struck Mrs
Gore in the face.
As the bullet was found buried
in the hair of the victim, it is im
possible to verify the direction
taken by the missile otherwise than
by the wound. As a result of to
day's examination, the examing
magistrate, has decided to set De
Rydzewki at liberty provisionally. '
Before the party left the house
M Bertillion, the criminologist,
who is also investigating the case,
on behalf of the police, took several
photographs of the room after ask
ing De Rydzewki to place every
thing in exactly the same position
it occupied at the moment ef the
tragedy. It is reported that he did
this, Rydezwki evinced much
emotion. He afterward left in a
cab, conducted by two "policemen,
who escorted him to the prison,
where the necessary formalities
attending his discharge from cus

Portland, Nov. 25. State Veter
narian William Mc Lean last week
condemned 65 cows owned by John
l nomas at .b air view, about 15 miles
east of Portland. Four of the ani
mals were killed and the others
will be similarly disposed of. Dr
McLean condemned them of tuber
culosis, His examinations were
aided by F G Cutlip, Deputy Dairy
and Food Commissioner.
The herd contained 120 animals
two of them bulls. The latter had
the disease in its most advanced
form and are believed to have trans
mitted it to the other animals.
Dr McLean says the conditions
discovered in the Fairview herd
are not unusual and that there is
no cause for a Bcare. Whether other
herds in the vicinity have the dis
ease cannot be determined without
futher tests, and as there is no
money for this, examinations will
not go much further. Dr McLean
said that he would inspect two two
or three more herds in that vicin
ity. ;
There's nothing sensational
about this," he said. "The news
paper which claim to have unear
thed these facts did not need to put
a scare head over them. There's
no scare at all. The same condi
tions exist all over Oregon and have
done so for years. Its the same
with human turberculosis. If we
should discover one family which -had
two or three cases of the disease -would
the community get scared?
Fourteen per cent of human deaths
are in one way or another, remotely
or directly due to turberculosis.1
Washington, Nov. 25. Secretary
Hay, while presenting the subject
of the canal' negotiations at tha
Cabinet meeting today, was not
able to report that any progress had
been made during the past week. In
fact, it appears that the negotiat
ions have come to a dead stop, and
while no such thing as an ultima
tum has passed, the precise situa
tion may be described in the state
ment that the Colombian Minister
here, Concha, has distinctly infor
med the State Department that ha .
cannot, in behalf of his govern- '
ment, accept the last proposition of
the United States as a basis for a
canal treaty. The State Depart
ment has already let it be known
that it has come to the end of its
concession, so the chances of a re
newal of the negotiations, in tha
near future are not very bright.
San Francisco, Nov 25. The gun
boat Ranger, which has arrived here
from Panama, will go to the Mare
Island navyyard, where she will
remain two months undergoing re
pairs. Captain Potter and the offi
cers of the Ranger witnessed some
of the effects of the eruption of the
volcano Santa Maria while passing
up the Central American coast, but
at the time were not aware of tba
disaster that had fallen upon Guat
emala. In the Gulf of Tehuante
peck the Ranger was for two or
three days in a thick atmosphere
of pumic stone and ashes covering
the surface of the eea in all direct
ions. The shore, which was many
miles distant from Santa Maria,
was covered with white ashes.

till February or March, when I
feel sure hops will go to 30 cents.
There are a number of ' buyers in
Portland who are trying to bear
the market, but I don't, think
they'll succeed, as the hop supply
is short this year.
Last year Great Britian produ

this year her product will not reach
the half of that. The New York
hops have nearly all been sold; the
Pacific Coast is behind in its aver
age crop this year. Germany has a
good many hops, but there is
limit even to her supply.

46,000 bales; this year, with her
shortage she will want a 'good

hold on and not to get cold feet.
They will come out all right if they
