HELPED OREGON PRCNECRQWERS.
Prices Fixed by California Associa
tion TOaricet in That State.
SALEM,. Or., Oct. 35. That the Cali
fornia Cured Fruit Association helped the
Oregon prunegrowers to dispose of their
crop at fair prices, becomes every day
more apparent. TVhile California grow,
ers have trouble in marketing their crop,
the Oregon product has practically all
been sold. On September 1 the California
Association fixed Its prices at one-quarter
of a cent above the highest expectations,
and has stocd bv the prices. . It has
been said from the firt, and appears to
be true, tint the prices named were too
high. Buyers looked outside tho asso.
elation for goods, and this has helped the
market ia this state, although Oregon
prodrees a different class of fruit from
that grown in California. "While the
market in Oregon has been brisk and
fruit has been disponed of rap!dly. the

Killlmacue Lake, which will furnish the
water supply, is situated In the moun
tains about 25 miles northwest of Baker
City. It covers about SO acres of ground.
Little work will have to be don'e to In
crease the lake's capacity. t Engineers
estimate that an increased flow of at
least 3000 inches, during the Irrigation
season, can bo secured by" the construc
tion of a bank at the outlet. This will
make the total flow of the lake between
5000 and 6000 inches, or sufficient water
to irrigate several thousand acres.
The name of the corporation Is the
Klllmacue Lake Reservoir & Rock Creek
Irrigation Company. All the farmers in

North Powder, 17 miles to the north. Most
of them are In the vicinity of Rock Creek,
which enters the Powder River Valley
about - half way between these points.
In conducting the water from the lake,

to sell rights to some concern that might

In this case plaintiff having recovered
a Judgment against defendant Robertson,
served garnishee process on appellant and.
afterward had tho appellant cited to ap
pear In court and answer certain alle
gations and interrogatories touching its
Indebtedness to Robertson. The plaintiff
alleged that the Blake-McFall Company
was indebted to defendant Robertson for
services In an amount, unknown to plain
tiff.. This was denied, and at the trial
plaintiff called the company's bookkeeper
to prove the employment of Robertson at
$100 per month. The company then
tried to show by cross-examination and
by making the bookkeeper their own wit
ness, that they had paid Robertson all
that was owing to him, but this evidence
wag rejected-on the ground that the 'com
pany had not plead payment.
The Supremo Court holds that this was
error, and says: "The allegation which

than that the company on the date of

Robertson There -aro no facts al

PORT TOWNSBND, Wash., Oct. 15.
The exploration party which went north
on the steamer Corwln has returned, and

been cast by the water. A lump of coal
weighing over one and one-half tons
picked up on the ocean, shore was brought
down on the Corwln and landed here.
The grade Is what Is known as seml
bltuminouR, between soft and hard coal.
The coal does not have to be mined, but
quarried and tumbled Into boats, accord
ing to officers of the Corwln. The dis
covery Is only 300 miles from Nome, and
its discovery will ptactlcdlly settle the
question, of fuel supply for that district,
and be of great valuo to mining carried

Chile Does Not 'Wtuit Political Mat
NEW YORK, OcU 15. Before finally ac
cepting the Invitation of Mexico to par
ticipate in the pan-American conference
to be hold next year Ih the City of Mex
ico, says the "Washington correspondent
of the Herald, Chile has suggested the for
mation of a definite programme, setting
forth the business the conference shall
dlscuBS. Chlle'8 actl6n Is based upon litr
unwillingness to permit any attempt on
the part of either Peru or Bolivia to nre
clpltate Into the discussions o the Con
gress the question of the Tacna and Arlca
In the congress held 10 years ago this
dispute was brougnt up. but Chile with
drew from the discussion, and no .t.tlon
was taken. 'Chile oa. repeatedly decl-irsd
Its adherence tc ..he principle of arbi
tration and will tncrefore not object to
the adoption by the congress of a recom
mendation for a treaty of arbitration
modeled somewhat after The Hague In
strument, but It will fnsjst that the pro
visions of the tra:y distinctly provlJe
that It Isi not retv J Active.
In view of Chile's suggestion that the
Tacna and Arlca dispute lie not allowed
to come. before the Pan-American" Con

The Government Seeking a Loan In
NEW YORK. Oct. 15. On a secret mis
sion from Santo Domlnge there has ar
rived, says the World, William Swift
Wright, formerly of Logansport, Ind.,
now confidential adviser of President Jim
Inez. Though Wright refuses to disclose
the purpose of his visit to this country,
it .is believed that Jlminez has sent him
here to negotiate a loan sufficiently large
to transfer the bonded indebtedness from
Belgian to American creditors, having de
cided on this course after a seven weeks'
.tour of the republic, In which he found
conditions most prosperous.
Mr. Wright said that In 1803 Santo Do
mingo owed the Belgian bondholders
about J7,000,000, but that the Indebtedness
has since grown to about $30,000,000.
"The Santo Domingo Improvement
Company," said Mr. Wright; "fbVmerly
gave the government J80.000 a month on
Its budget and applied the balance, less
expenses, on the Interest of the Belgian
bonds. The budget was not sufficient for
the government's expenses and the reve
nues were not sufficient for the debt.
"Counsel for the Improvement Company
In May made a new contract, by which
the debt was continued for three years.
Interest to be paid at 4 per cent, the Im
provement company to make a tate
ment of tho debt within six months, and
differences to be arbitrated.
"The six months expire this month and
counsel hag just arrived in Santo Do
mingo. Belgian bondholders have de
manded a commission to adjust the debt."

FIVE FORMER BRYAN STATES WliL
CHANGE THEIR WAYS. . -
Prediction Made by Carefnl Ob
erver, Who Offers to Baclz Hla
. Opinion by Even Bet.
SALEM. Oct. 13. E. D. Thome, who
travels, over a large portion of the West
ern States In the interests of the Putnam
Nail Company, of Boston, yestferday of
fered at the Willamette Hotel In thia
city to bet even money that the Statea
of Kansas, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming:
and South Dakota will go Republican In,
the coming election. Mr. Thorne Is a,
convert' to Republicanism. When asked
whether he was offering to bet accordlns
to his sentiments or according to his judg
ment, Mr. Thorne said that he never
puts up money to back his sentiments,
and that his belief in the Republicans
carrying these five states is based upon
careful observation as he has traveled
through them. He has formed his opinion
after talking with men of all. political
parties and who are engaged In various
occtipations la the 3tates najned. All of
these five str-tes went for Bryan In 1S9S
by good majorities, excepting South Da
kota and Wyoming.
Mr. Thorne says that Bryan's chances
for election have been greatly dimin
ished by the well-known circumstance
that a few years ago he was a man of
small means, and that while standing as
a candidate for President he has become
wealthy. The common people, asserta
Mr. Thorne, are coming to the conclusion,
that Bryan's advocacy of the free coinage
of silver has been in the Interests of the
sliver mine-owners, and when they ob
served the persistency with which he la
bored for a silver plank In the Kansas
City platform, going so fas as to say that
tho Democrats must look elsewhere for
a candidate If they refused to Incorporate
such a plank In thb platform, they aro
confirmed In the opinion that Bryan Is
the special representative of the 3llver
"There Is n6thlng. however, that has
hurt Mr. Bryan more than his inconsist
ent position on the question of expan
sion." continued Mr. Thorne. "The peo
ple will not give their approval to hla
action In first laboring for the ratifica
tion of the treaty by which we acquired
the Philippines and then refusing to abldo

While trtveling through Idaho. Mr.
Thorne met on several occasions a man
engaged in peddling campaign buttons
and other sm:tll notions. This man said
th'it he was engaged in the same occupa
tion and in the snrnf state In 1835. Four
yenrs ago his sale- of Bryan buttons wore
greatly Ir excess of his sales of McKlnley
emblems, so when ho started out this
year ho laid In a good supply of Demo
cratic buttons. To Ms surprise . the de
mand hod rhnntrort. and this year he has
two calls for McKlnley buttons to one
for Bryan. ThK Mr. Thorne thinks, is
a strong Indication of tho change In po
litical opinion In that state.
