German Army Officers Ordered
on Moroccan Mission.
HINT -READINESS FOR WAR
Kaiser's Chief of Staff Tells Him
Germany Is Jleady to Fight,

CHICAGO, April 19. The Chicago Daily
xews prints the following from its Berlin
"Telegrams were received from the
Kaiser today ordering three prominent
army officers to join the German mission
to Morocco. The officers are Colonel von
Schenck, commander of the Alexander
Grenadier -Guards, the regiment of which
the Czar is honorary Colonel; Major von
benaen, German military attache at
Madrid, a member of the First Dragoon
Guards, of which the Czarina is hon
orary Colonel; and Captain von Klelnst,
a member of the general staff and of
the Kaiser's body guard. The appoint
ment of two high officers of the Czar and
Czarinas German, regiments is consid
ered to amount to an affront to France.
AH the military men are jubilant. They
consider the Kaiser's selections as tanta
mount to an expression of his willingness
to let things come to an Issue with
France, even at the cost of war.
The Dally News correspondent learns
that Count Schlieffen. chief of the general
staff, has laid comprehensive assurances
before the Kaiser within the past three
weeks to the effect that Germany is
fully prepared to light the French, who
are known to be seriously unprepared,
owing to changes that are being made In
their rifle rendered necessary by the
adoption of a new cartridge.
SAYS FREE TRADE IS ASSURED
French Premier Accuses Germany of
Taking Unfair Advantage.
PARIS, April IS. Replying in the Cham
ber of Deputies today to criticisms of
French policy in Morocco, Foreign Min
ister Delcasse said he had been ready to
entertain propositions for the solution of
the difficulties in connection with the in
ternational policy of France. In refer
ence to Morocco he had informed the Ger
man Ambassador here and the French
Ambassador in Berlin that France was
prepared to discuss and clear up any mis
understanding that might arise. M. Del
casse added J
"The principle of freedom of trade with
Morocco is assured for all nations."
Premier Rouvier said If France had no
tified Germany of the Anglo-French con
vention, it would have been necessary to
Inform all the powers. He said Chancel
lor von Buelow had practically acquiesced
in that convention. Since then military
events had enfeebled France's ally, and
Germany possibly considered that by re
opening the question which France re
garded as settled she could use it to ob
tain commercial advantages. It was for
her to make a clear proposition. France
was ready to consider it while safeguard
ing her dignity.
CIIIXA AGREES TQ PAX UP!

NEW YORK. April 19. After two
years' discussion, the powers and
China will sign an agreement today,
according" to a Herald dispatch from
Pekln, regarding the payment of the
detlclt in the indemnity due to the
fall In the price of sliver, and provid
ing for the future payment of the in
demnity In gold.
The agreement comprises three par
agraphs, and briefly stated sets forth
that China Is to pay 15 days after the
signature of the document the sum of

ton this amount from January 1, 1905,
which sum is to be accepted in full

3IAY ADMIT AMERICAN GOODS
Meyer Negotiates for Removal of
Russian Countervailing Duty.
ST. PETERSBURG. April 19. The
firs official business taken up by the
new American Ambassador, Mr. Mey
er, with the Foreign Office was the
reopening of the question of the re
moval of the countervailing duty lev
ied in Russia against American man
ufactured goods in retaliation for the
countervailing duty in the United
States on Russian sugar. The levying
of the Russian countervailing duty,
which Is heavy, has practically re
sulted in the complete suspension of
the importation of all classes of Amer
ican goods, which were being brought
here on a large scale. Germany proved
to be the- chief beneficiary for the
same goods, many cases being import
ed through Germany, and the Russian
consumers being obliged to pay an in
At Mr. Meyer's request. Foreign Min
ister Lamsdorff has agreed to arrange
that the Ambassador bo allowed to
conduct the negotiations directly with
the Ministry of Finance, where, it is
believed, there is a disposition to fa
vorably adjust this troublesome ques
tion. DEFENDS KAISER WILLIAM.
British Nobleman Condemns Jin
goes Who Attack Him.
LONDON. April 19. Lord Lonsdale,
in a letter to the London .News Agency
for general publication, gives contra
diction to what he terms ridiculous
statements concerning his treatment
while attending the Kiel maneuvers,
and takes occasion to give a severe
reproof to the Germanophobe move
ment in the "Jingo'" newspapers in
England, which has been accentuated
since Emperor "William's visit to Mo
rocco. He says:
"Thero is no JQner nature In the
world than that of His Imperial Maj
esty, the German Emperor. If there
is fault at all In his nature, it is per-,
haps that he is a little too English In
his Ideas for some of his countrymen.
w0 bear continually that he is build
ing ships to compete 'with our navy,
which is absolute nonsense. He is
building ships to defend the trade of
his own country, and if there I3 any
fault it is on our side in swaggering
that we are building and maintaining
a navy that will equal that of any
two powers. Nobody takes greater
interest in the diplomacy and welfare
of England than His Majesty. Nat
urally, where the interests of his own
country are concerned, he would be
very far from doing his duty If he did
not take every advantage for his
ITALIAN RAILROADS TIED UP
While Strikers Fight Travelers Have
to Use Automobiles.
ROME. April 19. The Government's
railway bill was carried by a large ma
jority in the Chamber of Deputies today.
The conflict at Foggia Tuesday 'evening
between soldiers and striking railway
men, reinforced by peasants who tried to
invade the railway station, resulted in
the killing of three and wounding of five
of the -disturbers.
The strike is interfering with travel,
those members of the Chamber who wish
to return to their homes being provided
with a special train. Prince Ferdinand,
of Bulgaria, was less fortunate than the
deputies, for, relying on a motor car
to carry him to Naples, he suffered a
breakdown when about half the distance
and had to travel the rest of the way by
BALFOUR PARRIES ATTACK.
Taunted With Cowardice, He Re
fuses to Divulge His Policy.
LONDON, April" 19. In the House of
Commons today, on Premier Balfour's
motion to adjourn to May 2. Sir Henry
Campbell-Bannerman asked for informa
tion regarding various points of the Gov
ernment's policy. Including the fiscal
question, and took occasion to attack bit
terly the Premier, charging him with be
ing afraid to face the House.
Mr. Balfour retaliated with a sarcastic
speech, but made no new disclosures. He
said the Transvaal constitution would be
promulgated during Easter week, and de
clined to add to his previous declarations
on the fiscal question. Mr. Balfour chal
lenged the opposition to try a vote of
censure. The House then adjourned until
King Victor Thanks Morgan.
ROME, April 19. King Victor Emman
uel today received In private audience J.
Plerpont Morgan, who thanked the King
warmly for the Grand Cordon of Salnta
Maurice and Lazarus, which he wore.
The King was most cordial in his manner
toward Mr. Morgan, and made the Amer
ican financier sit next to him. He ex
pressed his personal gratification at the
generous act of Mr. Morgan in returning
to Ascola $he cope stolen from the Cathe
dral there and sold to him by an unknown
person. The conversation, which was car
ried on in English, lasted half an hour.
Later the King received United States

Anarchy Reigns in Sfacedonla.
VIENNA, April 19. The condition of af
fairs'in the Balkan states is causing much
uneasiness. The hope of a comparatively
peaceful Spring, which had previously
been expected, Is growing less, and It is
declared that the reform work has now
been conclusively proved without lasting
or good results. In Zagorlchamm, Pro
vince of Kroltza, early this month Greeks
killed more than 130 Bulgarians, and in
the Province of TJskub, Turks have killed
several Servians. Thus It Is seen that
all nationalities of Christians and Mo
hammedans continue fighting each other,
while Turkey seems unable or not de
sirous of affording protection to the peo
ple, and - stopping the disorders.
Kitchener Threatens to Resign.
LONDON, April 19. The correspondent
at Calcutta of the Dally Express learns
that friction has arisen between Lord
Kitchener and Major-General Elles, mili
tary member of the Governor-General's
council, whose anomalous position enabled
him to thwart the Commander-in-Chiefs
plans, and that Lord Kitchener threatens
to resign unless General Biles' duties are
restricted to the administrative depart
ment and he (Kitchener) Is given a voice
in the council, or placed In closed relation
with the Indian government.
Honor Beaconsfield's Memory.
' LONDON, April 19. Primrose day
was observed with undiminished zeal.
Lord Beaconsfield's statue was dec
orated on a generous scale. An en
thusiastic free trader utilized the oc
casion by placing by the side of the
statue a huge shield of primroses
bearing the well-known quotation
from remarks of the deceased states
man, "Protection is not only dead, but
is damned," picked out in forget-me-nots.
Railroad Strike Delays Emigrants.
ROME. April 19. The railroad strike

and provisions at Florence, owlne to the,
strike, are becoming scarce. Arrange
ments have been made to have fish and
meat taken to the city by carts.

JURY IS COMPLETE
First Step to Nan Patterson's
MARRIED MEN IN MAJORITY
Only Two Single Jlen Among Ju

Smith to Tell Story.
NEW YORK, April 19. The jury which
Is to decide the fate of Nan Patterson, on
trial for the third time on the charge of
murdering Caesar Young, a bookmaker,
was completed at 7:40 o'clock tonight,
when Recorder Goff adjourned court un
l next Monday morning.
Miss Patterson i3 again to face a jury
composed almost entirely of married men,
only two of the accepted panel of 12 being
single, one a bachelor, the other a wid
ower. Most of the Jurymen are of mid

large families, some daughters who are
It was announced tonight that the de
fendant would take the stand again and
tell her story. It Is also said that Miss
Patterson is anxious that her sister, Mrs.
J. Morgan Smith, should become a wit
ness for the defense, although it has not
been determined yet, either for the prose-,
cutlon or the girl's lawyers, just what
part the Smiths shall play.
In her previous trials the young pris
oner has had the comforting presence of
her aged father to cheer her through the
long hours In the courtroom, but today
she sat alone, save for her counsel, with
in the bar Inclosure. It had been ex
pected that her father would occupy his
accustomed place at this trial, but there
was no room for his chair beside his
daughter. The old man was in the court
room, however, occupying a seat well
back among the talesmen who were
awaiting the call for jury duty.
After the adjournment of the court Miss
Patterson had a little chat with her
father, and was then led back to her cell
In the Tombs. Her counsel declares that
the girl Is well pleased with the jury.
CONTEST FOR THE LETTERS.
Prosecution Resists Efforts of De
fense to Recover Them.
NEW YORK, April 19. Assistant Attor
ney Gans told Justice Gaynor In the State
Supreme Court In Flushing today that It
would defeat the ends of justice and re
veal to the defense the resources of the
prosecution In the trial of Nan Patterson
for the murder of Caesar Young If Dis
trict Attorney Jerome were compelled to
surrender the letters and documents taken
from Mrs. J. Morgan Smith when she was
arrested in Cincinnati. Counsel for the
Smiths asked for an order for the sur
render of the papers, and Justice Gaynor
suggested that they be given to the clerk
of the court, so that both sides could
have access to them, but Mr. Gans ob
jected. The court then reserved decision.
"Everything that creeps has horns
down in Nevada," said J. H. Price, of
LIda, Nev., at the Imperial Hotel yes
terday afternoon. "The lizards, bugs
and snakes all have horns. We have
a species of the rattlesnake down In
Nevada which I do not believe Is found
in any other part of the United States.
It never grows to be more than a
foot long and Is very slender.
"It has a small horn on the top of
its head and one rattle attached to the
end of Its tail. A bite from this small
reptile nearly always results in death.
Its venom is said to be even more
poisonous than that of the common
ratlesnake. You take one of these
common prairie snakes and you have
a chance to escape, as they will never
attack you unless rogered. Besides
they give you plenty of time to get
away, as their rattle can be distinctly
heard quite a ways off.
"But not so with the small rattle
snake we have down there. If man
goes within three or four feet of that
reptile It will attack him. It will sound
the alarm with its rattle, but It Is
so small that it is rarely heard. Our
rattler can spring at least three times
its length, so you can see that you
have to be very careful when wander
ing out in the sagebrush.
"Just before I came to Portland I
was in Goldfields and Tonopah," said
Mr. Price. "There Is no doubt but that
lots of people have died recently in
that mining district, but I believe that
fatal disease the"y talk so much about
is nothing less than pneumonia. I
have known persons to take down
with pneumonia In that climate and
die within six hours.
"You see when people go Into "that
country their system becomes perme
ated with alkali. They neglect to take
the proper care of themselves, and the
first thing they know they catch cold,
followed by the dreaded pneumonia.
Then if the system Is In bad condition,
death nearly always results. Of course
there may be an unknown disease
down there but I believe It Is straight
pneumonia Intensified by the peculiar
climate conditions. You see it is In
tensely hot during the day time and
at night It becomes very cold. These
extremes do- the work. In my opinion.
"Nevertheless, I would not advise
anyone to go Into that section of the
country at the present unless they have
friends there. If a man takes down
sick it Is hard to find anyone to take
care of him. Besides work Is hard
to obtain now in these mining camps.
There are lots of good properties
down there but development is being
retarded by inadequate transportation
facilities. There are several railroad
projects untfer contemplation and I
think all' those camps will be connect
ed with the outside world within a
year or two.
J. T. Mahon, of Mule. Or., was a
guest at the Imperial Hotel this week
on his way home after an extended
visit in California. Mr. Mahon, who
has a large ranch near Mule, which
Is In Harney County. Is one of the
largest raisers of horses, sheep and
mules In the United States. Mr. Mahon
Is responsible for the name of Mule,
which adorns a small postofflce, build
ings and a few residences. About ten
years ago - the postofflce was estab
lish near Mr. Hahon's ranch and he
was appointed postmaster.
The department at Washington in
structed Mr. Mahon to name the
postofflce and told him to make it
short. Mr. Mahon thought a long
time ,and then decided to name the
postofflce after his mules, which were
at that time making- a great deal of
money for him. He wrote to Wash
ington, told them the name he had
given the postofflce, and the Govern
ment officials sent hack congratula
tions. "Talk about your old Missouri
mules, why they are not In It with
some of those we raise back there in
Harney County;" said Mr. Mahon yes
terJay. "We raise mules which would
carry off prizes from any of the Mis
souri animals. I would be- willing to
take any 20 of my mules and compare
them with the Missouri animals be
cause 1 know 1 would cary off the
prizes. If there were any offered.
"We expected to sell a lot of horses
and mules to the Japs and Russians,
but their agents have not put In an
appearance in Harney County. At the
time of the Boer War we had no dif
ficulty In selling off all the loose stock
we had to the agents. All of us
ranchers down there confidently ex
pected to make a killing out of the
present war, but we Nwere badly dis
appointed. You know we get good
prices during war times.
"Yes, I have a pretty big ranch, but
Bill Brown, who lives near Wagon Tire.
In the same county, has got me
beat," answered Mr. Mahon to a ques
tion' "I DBlieVd-.BlIl Brown owns
more horses and mules than any one
man In the United States today. He
has them scattered all over that coun
ty. I don't think he himself knows how
many horses and mules he has. The
last I heard Brown had over 5000 head
of horses. We don't have any trouble
at all In selling all the stock we
raise. Great country down there, al
though It Is only about ISO miles
from the railroad."
"I am no miner myself, but if the as
says and the reports of the experienced
men whom we have had to examine our
claims are reliable, we have made one of
the richest strikes in the history of the
Northwest." said F. C. Hackney, at the
Hotel Imperial recently, in speaking of
the copper workings discovered In Grant
County. The copper ledge wa3 found by
Mr. Hackney, W. H. Officer and E. D.
Officer, of John Day, several weeks ago.
The men have kept very quiet about It
as they have been having assays made of
"We discovered this ledge about 35 miles
southwest of John Day. In places It U
20 feet thick. We have encountered this
ledge at. different places for a distance of
nine miles. It all lies cloae to the sur
face. We have a mining engineer by
the name of Walch, who worked for years
In the employ of Senator Clark, of Mon
tana, In there now Investigating the ex
tent and value of our strike. He has not
had time to compile a complete report,
but he has told me that we had the most
wonderful surface cropplngs of copper ore
he had ever seen. He says It will prove
to be pne of the richest properties in the
Northwest. We have had the ore as
sayed and we find that It ranges all the
way from 120 to $100 a ton. The ore we
had assayed was taken from the top of
the ledge within a few Inches of the sur
face of the ground.
"There have been several old experi
enced and reliable miners who have made
a thorough examination of this remark
able ledge. They all say we have made a
wonderful Btrike and wanted to buy In
6n our claims. The asssayers tell us the
same thing, so you can see that we have
reason to believe that wc have made a
rich strike. Although we have kept the
discovery as quiet as -possible, some
knowledge of it has come out and the
people of Grant County are preparing to
make a rush Into that section of the
country as soon as the snow clears off.
By Summer you will find that the whole
distance of nine miles through which runs
this ledge will be taken up In claims.
"We have another claim which we be
lieve will turn out to be very valuable."
continued Mr. Hackney. "We found some
old placer workings, near which there
was an old cabin and several sluice boxes.
The old cabin waB hidden In the trees
or it would have been discovered before
this. We found tracings of gold In the
working?. Years ago a group of prospec
tors struck a rich placer mine somewhere
in that vicinity, out of which they took
a great deal of gold. These prospectors
were all killed by the Indians and the
mine lost. Prospectors from different
parts of the country have made regular
trips up there looking for this old mine,
but they have never been able to find It
Wo think this old mine we have discov
ered Is the one, but it may be we are
mistaken. We cannot tell much about it
until the mow melts."
"It made me think of the old Mississip
pi River," Eald Adolphus Busch at the
Hotel Portland Wednesday night. In
speaking of this trip along the Willamette
River In a launch. "I saw those river
boats scurrying across the waters and
tho32 big etern-wheel passenger-boats,
and for a time I could almost Imagine
that I was back In St- Louis. But when
I got out In the harbor a little more and
saw several lmmenw sailing boats being
loaded with Oregon lumber and wheat, I
forgot about Missouri.
"In a few minutes I aw there was
a great deal of difference between the
Willamette and Mississippi Rivers. Our
stream Is considerably wider and the cur
rent Is very strong. From the big ocean
going vessels I saw In the harbor I should
judge that your river was deeper. But
your waters are of such a beautiful blue,
while the Mississippi River Is very muddy
when It reaches St. Louis. The Missouri
River Is the cause of It. The biggest
treat I had on the trip was when we
hove In sight of the three or four big
ocean-going steamers anchored below the
bridges. I knew you. had a wonderful
harbor here, but I hardly thought you
could handle such big vessels as those I

SHIP ALL THEIR OWN
Los Angeles' Merchants Char
ter Roanoke for Trip to Fair.
COME TO PORTLAND IN JUNE
Two Hundred Business Men of That
City Make up an Exclusive
Party to Visit the Lewis
and Clark Exposition.
Two hundred of the leading business !
mon of Los Angeles have clubbed to- j
gether, chartered a steamship and will
come to Portland In style to. see the Fair.
This announcement was made yester
day at the office of the North Pacific
Steamship Company. The vessel engaged
Is the Roanoke- The date for the trip
has not yet been fixed, but It will come
off some time in June. The party will
not return on the same trip, but will re
main here two weeks, visiting Puget
Sound and the Willamette Valley In the
meantime. They will release the steamer
while they are here, and she will make
her regular scheduled run to the south.
On their return home, as on the voyage
to this city, they will have the exclusive
use of the vessel and no tickets will be
sold to others. This Is the largest party
co far made up to come to the Exposition
Charles P. Doe, the managing director
of the steamship company, did not come
up on the Roanoke, as was expected, hav
ing been detained at Eureka. Agent
Harry Young looks for him In about 10
days. It Is the understanding here that
Mr. Doe will proceed cast shortly to buy
another steamer for the line, as the busi
ness Is growing so rapidly that the Roan
oke cannot handle all of It. Not only Is
the traffic between Portland and San
Francisco Increasing, but the business
between the Bay City and San Pedro has
developed beyond expectations. The
Roanoke is now receiving her outward
cargo here, and will sail southward to
night. Her freight will be made up of 00
tons of wheat and a large quantity of
ADMIRAL KEMPFF LEAVES.
Goes North to Inspect Puget Sound
Rear Admiral Kempff took leave of
Portland yesterday, going to Tacoma by
the afternoon train. In the nine days
he was In this district he Inspected about
SO boats, and It can be said to the credit
of the local Inspectors that he found their
llfe-.aing equipment In most satisfactory
condition. In nearly every instance the
crews showed the effect of excellent train
Ing in the fire drills and in the manage
ment of lifeboats. The Admiral had but
little to say of the result of his inves
tlgatlons, as he will report on that sub
ject to the Secretary of Commerce and
Labor, but It Is known that he was well
pleased with the condition In which he
found the Willamette and Columbia River
Admiral Kempff expressed himself as a
great admirer of Portland, and regretted
that he was compelled to make such a
short siay here. The city has made -won
derful progress since he was here last, he
said. He spoke highly of the condition In
which the streets and bridges were kept,
but was not heard to compliment anyone
on the condition of the steamboat docks.
He was loud In his praise of the Port
land Hotel. The Admiral will return to
San Francisco from the Sound.
LOST WATCH RECOVERED.
Second Officer of Aragonia Is Lucky,
But Does Not Yet Know It.
If the China liner Aragonia does not
sail from Astoria this morning, the heart
of Second Officer Wolken will be glad
dened by the news that a valuable watch
that he lost In this city has been recov
ered. It was returned to the office of
Taylor, Young & Co. yesterday, but after
the steamer had started down the river.
Mr. Wolken lost the watch one night
while returning to the vessel. Aa he was
afraid of being held up, he took it out
of his pocket and tied It around his ankle
before he ventured out on the streets.
