Eastern Washington to
Use House Bill.
Votes to Be Given Earles Bill to
Prevent Car Shortage.
Friends of Land Commissioner Mak
ing Overtures to Railroad Com
. mission Radicals to Kill Un
' favorable BHI in House.
QLYSiPIA, Wash., Feb. 22. (Special.)
The Crane-Dickson railway "commission ,
bill, -as 'the House substitute, measure is
commonly, called, although .It is not so
sweeping, as sonje o the ultra-commission
men desire. is?; now looked upon as
the bill that Eastern Washington will
stand' fpn and. which tv-ill be the basis
of trade negotiations with -other inter
ests. Today two trades are in Jthe wind, and
it is "known that tentative suggestions
have been made looking to an exchange
of votes that would add to the strength
of the bill in the Senate. One of these
suggestions has come from the lumber
men and millowners who want to see
passed the Earles reciprocal demurrage
bllL The railroads now require a con
signee of freight to pay demurrage un
less a car is unloaded -within a certain
The Earles bill obtained its name from
the fact that it required the railroad
company to pay a demurrage i cars for
loading are not furnished within a certain
lime after they have been requested.
Its passage is particularly desired' by
mlllmcn who have suffered from car
shortages. The proposed trade Is that
the commission men furnish enough, votes
to pass the Earles bill in return for
sufficient votes to pass the House rall
way commission bill.
Deal Has Its Drawbacks.
Some of the lumbermen and millmcn
In the House have been strongly aligned
with the ones who are opposing so
drastic a commission bill as the House
measure, and considerable doubt is ex
pressed as to the ability of the ne
gotiators to swing the votes necessary
to carry out tho lumbermen's end of the
Another proposal comes to the commis
sion men from some of the lumbermen
who -have combined,, with the friends of
land Commissioner E. W. Boss to-prevent
the passage of tho bills 'introduced
in the House withdrawing from sale all
state lands for a definite period. The
passage of these bills would necessarily
curb the powers of the State Land Com
missioner and would reduce his office
greatly in importance. It would result
in the cutting down of his Office force
to the very few men who would be re
quired to keep up current work. The
L,and Commissioner naturally objects to
the taking away , of his discretionary
powers, and there aro many lumbermen
who would object to tho state lands be
ing taken off the market.
Earles Trade Has Preference. v
So far the proposal to the commission
men from this source Is so indefinite
that it Is not known what strength the
etate lands men can muster, and the
discussion of pending deals gives the
Earles trade the preference, on account
of appearing more nearly feasible and
susceptible of actual results.
It is understood that when the commis
sion bill gets Into the Senate, Senator
Graves will propose several amendments
making the bill still more drastic. They
will be presented, not in the hope of
securing their adoption, but with the in
tention of making a declaration for what
the most radical adherents of tho rail
way commission ' Idea believe should be
contained in the bill.
Governor Mead received a communlca
lion today from the Tacoma Chamber of
Commerce, asking him to give represen
tatives of that body an opportunity to
appear before him and present argument's
favoring an approval of the capital re
moval bill by the executive. Governor
Mead has replied that if the bill comes
io him. and it Is a matter on which he
is required to act, Jic will name a time
at which representatives of the Chamber
may present their side of the case.
It Is also announced In this connec
tion by the Governor that he will bo will
ing. to give Olympia representatii'cs or
others interested an audience.

Too Little Money for Mute School
BUI Without Title.
SALEM, fir., Voh Tvri n.ii. j,
f lUimuiillAliUing
U)a fact that today was a legal holiday.
uovarnor i nam&eriam kept steadily at
won; on tne ours berore him, with the
result that 73 were filed xHh th
iary of State without approval, Zi received
bis signature and four bills were vetoed.
One of the bill to meet with the Jls
tpproval of the Governor was that pro
riding for an appropriation of 570.000 for
locating and establishing ,-v new deaf
mute school nearer to the city; another,
lor tho establishment of the Rogue River
toad district, authorizing the counties of
lophIne and Currj- to incorporate Into
laid district for the purpose of construct
ing a wagon road, with' power to levy
ind colloct taxe$ for building road,
tnd to issue bonds to a limit of 50,000:
i third Veto wasvof the 'bill providing for
voting on the question -of sheep and goats
running at Jargp, ludd to be unconstitu
tional because it was enacted without
title; and the fourth, a bill regulating the
sale of fertilisers.
The mute school bill waa killed princi
pally because the sum appropriated was
not sufficient to carry out the provisions
.of the act, and because of other la.rgc
amounts appropriated by the Legislature.
The Rogue River road district act was
vetoed upon constitutional grounds, main
ly because of the amount to which the
district was entitled to contract dobt was
in excess of a constitutional restriction or
Governor Says -Sufficient Appropria-
. tion Has Not Been Made.
; SALEM, Or., Feb.' 22. (Spccial.)-Thc
570,000 appropriation bill -for a new mute
school met the Governor's disapproval to
day and will not become a law. The rea
son for the vcto was .that the appropria
tion Is insufficient to erect suitable build
ings and no arrangements have bpon
made for other -use for the present build
ings. The veto message says:
This is an act to authorize the Board of
Trustees of the Oregon School for Deaf
siutts to relocate and establish the school
for the education of deaf mutes within
the Stat a of-Oregon, and to provide for the
purchase of ground and the construction of
suitable buildings, and to make-. appropria
tion therefor. For the nuroosca -of the act
$70,000 is 'appropriated tor purchase the
necessary grounds and to construct thereon
suitable building.
The amount apnronrialcd will be wholly
Insufficient to acquire the crounds and
erect .suitable buildings for -the purposes of
me proposed school.
An act was pa.sed at this session of the
Legislature authorizing the Governor, Sec
retary of State and State Treasurer to ac
quire tho grounds necessary for a school
for defective and epileptic children, and
authorizing . them to have plans made and
to obtain estimates of the cost pf buildings
suitable for the purposes of the act. For
this purpose $15,000 was appropriated, and
tho board appointed Is required to report
to the next session of tho Legislature. The
same course saould have been pursued with
reference to the School for Pe&t Mutes, so
"in in cusuiug jesiaiuiurc raigni- nave
made an appropriation sufficient to do the
work required to be done.
There is a difference of opinion as to the
good to be attained by removing the Mute
School from Us present site to one nearer
the city, and tills Is a subject which oucht
to have been fully Investigated and report
ed upon before buying grounds and appropri
ating so large a sum of money.
Because of these things and of the large
amounts of money that have already been
appropriated for institutions already estab
lished, I feel It my duty to veto the act
under consideration, and I return the same
nerewiin to you.
Governor Vetoes Bill Requiring Reg
istration of Brands of Fertilizers.
SALEM, Or., Feb. 22. (Special.) Gov
ernor Chamberlain this evening vetoed
Newell's House Bill 85. requiring that
brands of fertilizers be regletored at the
Agricultural College, and. that a fee of
$30 he paid each year to the college for
each brand registered. The proposed law
provided that If fertilizers aro shipped
into the state without the payment' of
the fee, the goods shall be seized and sold
by the director of the agricultural experi
ment station, and after the fees due arc
paid the balance be turned over to the
owner of the goods. Local dealers vio
lating the act would be liable to arrest.
The Governor objects to the measure
for tho reason that it imposes different
punishment on two classes of dealers and
does not require the Agricultural College
authorities to make any accounting for
the money received by them. If the
money received should be Insufficient to
pay the cxponsc of enforcing the law
there would be a future demand for ap
propriations, while if tbero ahould ho an
excess, there Is no provision for the dis
position of the remainder.
The strongest objection the Governor
makes Is that tho act requires the direc
tor of the agricultural station to perform
duties usually -devolving upon Sheriffs and
Constables. He says:
The tendency of the educational institutions
of the state Li to branch out into other fields
ihan those originally Intended to be occupied
by them, and this measure Is the strongest
evidence of that fact. It may be that there
should be some legislation along the lines In
tended to- be covered 'by the act In question,
but I cannot give my approval to a measure
v.hloh places an educational institution or
any pf Its officers or agents in a position which
requires them to play the part of detectivfe.

Bill in Violation of Constitution.
SALEM. Or., Fob. 21 Special.)-Gov-ernor
Chamberlain's veto was today
placed upon the Rogue River road dis
trict bill. Introduced In the .Legislature
by Smith of Josephine. The bill proposed
to create a- road district composed of Jo
sephine and Curry counties, with power
to Issue bonds In the sum of 530,000 for
the purpose of building a road connecting
the two counties.
The Governor-s objeotlons are that the
TjIH violates two .sections of the constitu
tion, that forbidding the passage of spe
cial or local laws for laying, opening and
working highways, and that limiting the
Indebtedness of a county" to 55000. He
cites the case of Maxwell vs. Tillamook
county in- support of his first objection.
Aside from these two objections he says
it is doubtful whether the Legislature has
authority to extend the taxing power to
a commission Independent :of the state
and county governments.
The Governor admits that the courts
upheld such an act in the case of the
Port of -Portland, but says-the Legislature
went tq the full limit In creating the
Port of. Portland and it would havobecn
better for the pcopie of, ' Multnomah
county If that law had been held un
constitutional. In any event, he thinks
the precedent Is not one to be encour
aged. Protests on Two Measures.
SALEM, Or., Fob. 22. (Special.) The
most Important bills remaining in the
hands of the Governor are Kuykendall's
fraternal insurance society bill and Ma
larkey's bill appropriating 57 a month for
the maintenance of each wayward girl
kept in an institution established for that
purpose. Protests have been made
against both these measures. The former
is objected to by the representatives of
some of the younger fraternal societies,
who aver that it will Injure them.
The Malarkcy bill Is opposed by some
Protestants on the ground that there is
only one institution In the state that
comes within the terms of the act. and
that institution Is under the control of
the Catholic Church. Tomorrow Is the
last day the Governor has In which to
veto bills.

First Suggestion of. Peace
Game From Her.
Basis Is Russia's Withdrawal From
Corea: and. 'Restoration cf- Man
churia' to ' China France
Working for Peace!
WASHINGTON'. Feb. 22. There is a
general impression here that President
Roosevelt has been Informed by a high
diplomat whose .Identity is not disclosed,
that Japan has advised Russia she would
like the restoration of peace, at the same
time suggesting general lines on which
this could be arranged.- The supposed no
tification was made direct to the Russian
government at St. Petersburg. It Is said
to have gone further, and It Is .also de
clared that Japan would welcome nego
tiations looking to peace.
The diplomat who furnished the Presi
dent with this information is supposed to
be M. JuSserand, the-French Ambassador,
who was at the AVhite House Saturday
The basis for negotiations Is said" to be
the withdrawal of all claims by Russia
to the control of Corea and the restoration
of Manchuria to China.
The President and Secretary -Hay be
lieve the information given to be accu
rate. They think the peace discussions
at St. Petersburg "arc due to the notlHca
tion by Japan instead of any suggestion
to "be made by Russia. The Japanese le
gation has no advices as to the advances
saVfl .to have been made directly to Rus
sia. Other diplomats say they are' ignor
ant on the subject. - v
It Is believed. -here that France is urg-in-
Russia to open peace negotiations.
She Wants $350,000,000, Hoping to
Cripple Russia.
LONDON, Feb. 23. According to a
Paris dispatch, the indemnity asked by
Japan, which was reported to be the
principal obstacle In the way of peace in
the Far East, is 70.000,000 ($550,000,000).
Japan, in fixing the indemnity "at this fig
ure, intends to retard the rehabilitation
of Russia.
Russia Offers Only to Give Up What
Is Already Lost.
LONDON. Feb. 22. The terms on which
Russia is reported to be prepared to con
clude peace arc regarded In official circles
in' London as Inadequate and largely In
the nature of a trial balloon. Among the
British officials the hope of a. speedy ces
sation of hostilities is mostly based on
official advices telling of the increasing
ascendency and activity of the peace
party in Russia. It is known that Count
Benkendorff, the Russian Ambassador to
Grout Britain, L5 an adherent of this
parly, and it is understood he did all
possible to impress his views upon, his
government during his recent stay at St.
The British officials entertain little
doubt that If Russia will express her
willingness to conclude peace on terms
which will recognize Japan as the victor
a satisfactory solution would be reached
through the good offices of France and
Great Britain.
The Japanese in London declare that
the suggested terms arc Impossible of
acceptance. Baron Suiycmutsu pointed
out that Corea and the Llao Tung Pen
insula, which Russia proposed to sacri
fice, arc already in the hands of the
Japanese, and that Japan certainly Is en
titled to an Indemnity. Russia's proposal
to restore Manchuria to China as far
north as Harbin, the Baron added, would
leave Russia in possession of two-thirds
of Manchuria.
Russians Rely on Long Purse for
Escape From Defeat.
ST. PETERSBURG, Feb. 22 (7:30 P. M.)
Although the party which Is advocating
peace as the only egress from the pres
ent situation continues to gain strength,
nothing has actually been decided, and no
move has yet been made. It is officially
maintained that Russia's attitude is un
changed. At the Foreign Office not the
slightest encouragement is given to the
peace talk. On the contrary, it Is af
firmed as strongly as ever that Japan
must propose terms, while at the same
time it is admitted that it is Inconceivable
that Japan can offer conditions acceptable
to Russia, and that therefore the- war
must go on to a conclusion.
The idea of a complete Russian victors'
Is not harbored, but it is Insisted that
Russia Is not boaten and will not be
beaten until General Kuropatkln Is de
cisively worsted by General Oyama and
the fate of. Admiral Rojestvensky's squad
ron Io determined. Tho main considera
tion entering into tho calculations of the
uncompromising advocates of a Drosccu
tlon of the war Is that Japan's financial
resources must become exhausted long

America Aids and Is Watchful for
American Interests.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 22,-Although not
figuring formally of late in the various
tentative efforts by the powers to bring
aoout peace Between Russia and Japan,
this Government has kept In very close
touch with developments, along this di
rection. To make any official statement
of whit It has done on. its own account
might be ill-advised, owing to the extreme
sensitiveness of hoth belligerents when
any open evidence is shown of a purpose
to bring outside pressure to bear upon
them. But it. may be safely said that
while peace is not- regarded .as immedi
ately aj hand, at least the foundations
have been laid for negotiations that will
bring the principals together In tho end,
and It probably VlU be found that the
United States has had sumo share in this
Meanwhile, the .publication of almost
semi-official statements to the effect that
peace Is being considered has aroused in
the officials here renewed desires to se
cure as far as can be done before a treaty
Is actually signed absolute guarantees for
the security of American commercial in
terests in the Far East, while conserving
tne terntorjai integrity or tnina. On this
latter point it Is said the projected cession
to Japan of Port Arthur and the Llao
Tung Peninsula does not involve the ab
solute relinquishment of Chinese sover
eignty In that quarter.
What is- believed to be actually pro
posed is not an unqualified cession of tvr
ritory. but merely the transf6r to Japan
of the right of occupation of Port- Arthur
arid the right to protect the rallroadjead
lng' northward along the peninsula now
enjoyed by Russia under tho terms of tho
lease made with China at the. conclusion
of the Chinese-Japanese war.
The principal effect of acquisition by
Japan of Port Arthur and the proposed
neutralization of Vladivostok would, in the
opinion of naval officers here, operate to
prevent Russia from ever again maintain
ing a navy in the Far East for lack of a
suitable base.
Russia Not Ready to Yield and
Japan Wants Permanent Peace.
PARIS, Feb. 22. Russia has not
given any indication to Franco that
she is ready to take up the question of
peace, and therefore the autnoritles
hero Uo not feel qualified to discuss
the St. Petersburg1 reports giving the
precise terms. The reports arc ex
plained substantially as follows: .
The peace sentiment has lately been
steadily augmenting throughout Rus
sia, particularly outside of St. Peters
burg-, and within recent days some of
the most influential personages in St.
Petersburg: have come out favorable
to peaco and have sought to impress
responsible officials that the tune has
arrived to take definite action. How
ever, those having the chief responsi
bility, such as Foreign Minister Lams
dorff, have not yet shown willingness
to accept peace arguments. Therefore.
so long as the Russian Foreign Office
Is not prepared to accept the peace
view, it is considered doubtful of ac
complishment. In spite of this, the
peace reports arc considered a hopeful
sign of a tondency in the highest
quarters toward poaco.
The Japanese Legation points out
that peace negotiations require certain
definite steps between the parties, and
as Russia has not yet made the slight
est overture to Japan concerning
terms, Russia is not in a position to
elaborate pacific conditions. The of
ficials of the legation incline to tho
view that the St. Petersburg reports
were designed to sound the official
sentiment in Japan. What Tokio will
say is not known.
The Japanese officials express a strong
conviction that prior to determining def
inite terms. It will be Indispensable to
settle the main principle that the terms
will ensure peace In the Far East for
many years to come. Tho Japanese posi
tion Is said to be quite definite against
arranging a peace which would permit
Russia to rehabilitate herself. Concerning
the indemnity, it Is said that the Japanese
war budget up to March 31 shows that
tho total war expenditures will be about
J350.000.000. The Legation considers that
some Indemnity Is equitable, as Japan has
expended double the amount of the. cost
of the Chinese War In holding up prin
ciples which St. Petersburg reports indi
cate Russia is now disposed to recognize.
Tho Russian Embassy, replying to In
quiries relative to the peace rumors, says
that while peace Is the subject of numer
ous conversations In Russia as elsewhere.
It Is Incorrect -to assume that the gov
ernment has taken up the question. It Is
pointed out that some weeks must pass
"before General Kuropatkln can make a
aeciexvc caon, una increiorc. n is inop
portune for Russia to consider peace at
the present time, much less determine the
conditions on which peace Is possible.
Russia Will Make Inquiries Through
France and Eritain.
"BERLIN Feb. 22,-That the Russian
Emperor has actually determined to seek
peaefs docs not appear to be known here
officially, but this court has been aware-
that the Emperor s mind has been wav
ering between peace and a continuance of
the war. What Emperor Nicholas lias so
far decided to do seems to be to request
of France to ask the British Foreign
Office to Inquire of Jaian what terms
might be expected wero Russia to propose
-peace-; that Is to Hay, tho preliminary
steps are -to be- taken by the seconds.
Russia will thus be able to refuse to open
negotiations If Japan's terms arc exorbi
tant It Is argued that the Russian Emperor
could again appeal to the discontented
classes to support the war as easier to
bear than the price of peace. This price.
It is said at the Legation here,
will not be beyond wliat even Russia
would consider just, because Japan, to
gather the fruits of the war, must avoid
an embltferment that would keep a fresh
war ever In prospect.
Francis Joseph Did Not Mediate.
VIENNA. Feb. 22. The announcement
of the possibility of peace In the Far
East published here today was received
with much satisfaction in diplomatic cir
cles. For several weeks unofficial inquiry
has been made as to whether Austria
should not, or would not, fill the rolo of
mediator, and whether Emperor Francis
Joseph, as dean of the European mon
archs. would not himself take steps to
this end. But the Emperor Is not In
clined to undertake mediation. In viow of
the definite statement that Russia would
not be willing to listen to any powor on
the subject, and consequently the entire
matter remains unchanged. It is reported
here that the proposal for mediation by a
friendly power came from the Japanese

He Sent for Talisman to Ward Off
Danger, but Too Late.
MOSCOW, Feb. 22. This afternoon
the public was admitted for the last
time to view the remains of Grand
Duke Sergius, long lines of people fil
ing rapidly through the chapel of the
Chaudoff Monastery and past the cof
fin. This evening the chapel waa closed
In order to make preparations for the
funeral, which will take place at 1
o'clock tomorrow afternoon.
Fragments of the Grand Duke's head
have been collected and placed In a
silver receptacle, resting on the coffin.
It Is evident that Grand -Duke Sergius
took the warnings that his life was In
danger as serious, a priest In Kieff
receiving a few days before the as
sassination a letter from tho chief of
ficer of the household of the Grand
Duke asking, in the name of Sergius,
for the blessed cross of St. Barbara, tho
martyr, which pious Russians believe
to be h talisman, against violent death.
The priest sent the relic, but It met
with two days delay, arriving subse
quent to the crime.
The autopsy on the body of the
coachman of Grand Duke Sergius show
ed that bits of the carriage and of his
clothing had been driven Into his spine
and kidneys, causing blood poisoning,
from which he died.

Strike Stops Traffic From
Warsaw to Vienna.
ST. PETERSBURG. Feb. 23 (3 A. M.)
According to mail reports received from '
Batoum. racial disorders In the Caucasus
have developed Into actual revolution In
the cities of Batoum. Patt and Kutals,
at the eastern end of the Black Sea. un
der the lead of Armenians, who have set
up a form of provisional government.
Telegraphic communication has been
cut for several days and It Is impossible
to secure direct confirmation of these re
ports, but according to one letter the
Armenian faction a few days ago suc
ceeded in making prisoners of most of
the officials and shutting up the officers
and some of the troops In the barracks,
and. aided to some extent by reservists,
in taking the reins of government In their
own hands. j
The authorities here and others familiar
with conditions In the Caucasus do not
attach great importance to these reports,
however, as this region Is In a continual
state of turmoil and. If it is true that
Armenians have succeeded In temporarily
e.-Uabllshing themselves In the towns
named. It Is no Indication of a general
revolutionary movement, but simply an
other manifestation of racial feeling be
tween Armenians and Tartars.
