Fifteen Methodist, 12 English Protestant
and 14 French Catholic missionaries were
in the city on last Thursday night, when
the French Catholics had a quarrel with
an official over a suit for the poscton
of property. Great excitement prevailed
on Friday. A mass meeting was held on
Saturday and was followed on Sunday by
a riot, during which the property of the
Catholics was burned. The priests took
refuge In the adjoining house of Mr.
Kingman. The house was burned ami six
priests and two of the Kingman family
The Chinese Governor attempted to
check the riot and rescue the missionaries.
The men of the Methodist mission, aided
by Chinese soldiers, took their school girls
to Chinese homes In the city and brought
Misses Howe and Kahn from a hospital.
All took refuge in mldriver in a launch,
which was furnished by Chinese officials.
The launch waited until Chinese soldiers
brought the remaining missionaries at
daylight on Monday. The launch reached
Klukiang on Tuesday. The wounded
Kingman girl died on the way. Chinese

LET CONTRACTS " AHEAD
Sccrctnry-Strongly Hccontmcnds Ap
propriation of $100,000 and Au-
thorizlng of Contracts
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. March 1. The Secretary of War
today sent to Congress with his approval
tho letter of the Chief of Engineers
strongly recommending the adoption of
Senator Fulton's amendment to the sun
dry civil bill appropriating $400.GCO to com
plete the jetty at the mouth of the Col
umbia River to the end of the present
tramway. But what is equally. If not
more, important, the Secretary and Gen
eral Mackenzie Join In recommending that
Mr. Fulton's amendment be expanded to
not only make this cash appropriation but
to authorize tho Secretary of War to en
ter Into contracts for the completion of
the Jetty to Its full projected length: in
other words, authorizing contract?-, aggre
gating about J1.10O.O In addition to the
cash appropriation sought for immediate
Mot Advanced Step Yet.
This is the most advanced step the de
partment has yet taken in this matter,
having been up to this time unwilling to
do more than recommend a sufficient ap
propriation to preserve the work already
done. This new recommendation Is the
result of several conferences Mr. Fulton
has had with General Mackenzie since in
troducing his amendment to the sundry
civil bill. General Mackenzie personally
has all along favored the appropriation of
enough money to complete the entire jet
ty, but he. like Senator Fulton, has been
aware that no such appropriation can be
secured at this session.
The change recommended In the Fulton
amendment, however, will be as good as
cash. for. If the amendment In Its nltered
form Is adopted, the Secretary -of War
can go ahead ami complete the jetty as
rapidly as stone can be delivered, and the
Government will be bound to pay the bills.
The actual cash could not be made avail
able for another year, but it would be
provided by Congress In the sundry civil
1)111 of next session, and there would be
no difficulty about completing the Jetty
Fulton Will Push L'Ight.
Mr. Fulton will have a hearing before
the commerce committee next Thursday,
that he may present an argument in sup-,
port of the amendment, and will endeavor
to have it reported with the change sug
gested by the War Department. If this
Is done, the amendment will be privileged
when the sundry civil bill comes over
from the House, and there Is a fair pros
pect that It may be attached to the bill
and made to stick.
Altogether the outlook for the Columbia
River appropriation is brigntcr now than
at any previous time this session, but the
light Is not won. by any means. The
greatest danger wilt arise when the sun
do civil bill goes back to the House with
the Senate amendments attached. It will
require the united efforts of all friends
of the Columbia River to hold this amend
ment in the bill when It goes to confer
ence, but these men arc prepared to make

CALDWELL. Jduho. March 1. (Staff.
Correspondence.) With his face ashencu
with the prison pallor. Harry Orchard
once more visited the town In which he
planned the appalling assassination of
ex-Governor Stcunenbcrs. Closely guard
ed by a small army of Penitentiary wardens-,
detectives and Sheriffs, Orchard ar
rived here on the pony early thl3
Orchard wore no handcuffs, and. unlike
the four other prisoners whose arrest was
due to his confession, he was not placed
in the County Jail. Instead, the fate?
ecm to have taken a hand in his welfare
and he tonight occupies room No. 19. in
the Saratoga Hotel, the room in which he
manufactured the bomb "which blew
Idaho's ex-Governor into eternity.
On the train which arrived here this
morning wer a number of witnesses.
who during the day appeared before the
grand Jury. They were State Chemist R.
Macy. Chemist Jones, of Moscow: James
McParland. Andy Johnson, the Boise po
liceman who swore out the warrant
upon which Orchard was arrested, and
George W. Froman. These men arrived
in Boise late Inst night, met the Jawycrs
who will, conduct tho, prosecution and in
a way acted as body-guards for the
Orchard Is Well Guarded.
An effort was made to keep the fact
that Orchard would appear before the
grand jury a profound secret, but every
body who was interested in Orchard s
trip here was on hand when the train
pulled otit of Boise. Every safeguard
possible was thrown about Orchard. The
prison earring; did not arrive at the
depot until just a few minutes beforo
leaving time. Guard George Smith ush
ered Orchard into the smoker and took
a sent beside him. while the rest of the
posse took seats surrounding the prisoner.
Between illness and close confinement,
and perhaps a conscience that has caused
him mnny wakeful hours. Orchard was
very jmle. He was dressed in a natty
dark suit, the one which he wore when
he was arrested. The man was cxtrcmely
nervous In spite of titc desperate effort
he was making to assume indifference.
Prisoner Is Very Xcrvotis.
After Orchard had taken his scat, ho
was handed a newspaper, which he pre
tended to rcud, but those who were
watching him closely noted that his steel
gray eyes shifted uneasily over the car
and were not on the printed page which
he held before him. Occasionally ho
talked with Guard Smith, but he spent
moat of the time glancing furtively, first
through the window, then over passen
gers in the car. Several times, when
some passenger moved about, got on or
left the car. he would start as though
fearful of being attacked.
At first glance Orchard's face is not an
111-looklng one. A closer study of its con
tour, however, leaves the Impression that,
had he been born a reptile, he would have
been a chameleon. His temperament Is
mercurial, his lips are sensual and cruel,
and his chin Is small and weak. His is
the face of a man easily led and shows
plainly that In the hands of a leader he
would be just as so much human clay to
be molded as the leader willed.
Cowers When In the Toils.
From a general summing up of his char
acter, one can readily realize how Orch
ard, beginning with the petty crimes
which the "Inner Circle" set for him to
do. would lead up to the commission of
the murders and dynamite destructions to
which he has confessed.
He is the fiend courageous uncaught,
and. when once in the toils, an arrant,
groveling coward. His eyes arc the only
thing about him that bespeak a spark of
manhood. There human sympathy stops.
The rest of the face shows what he
As the train ncared Caldwell, Orchard s
uneasiness became more marked. Far
out across the scattered homes, the sub
urbs of Caldwell, stands the home of cx
Governor Stcunenbcrg. It was notice
able that when the train passed this
point Orchard took his eyes from the
window and tried to fasten theni on his
newspaper. His mind was elsewhere, and
his eyes shifted back and forth over the
car like a, shuttle In a loom.
Few People at the Depot.
When the train stopped. Orchard quick
ly looked over the crowd, and seemed to
be relieved when he found that the depot
wa3 almost deserted. Surrounded by the
guards he was taken to the Masonic Tem
ple. andthere waited, until he was called
before the grand jury. He was placed In
an anteroom and guards sat with him
