Washington informing him that a
patent had been granted on bi device
for ailing through the air. A com

and George T. Garden are among the
stockholders. The attorney for the
company ii M. M. Estee.
These well-known men declare that
Smith' machine appear feasible a a
mechanical proposition, and that it is
really a most ingeniou solution of the
difficult prob'ems that have faced the
scientific aeronaut Smith himself

The coming Oregon Industrial Expo

ises to be a pronounced success. The
citizen of that enterprising city have

report of extensive counterfeiting of
United Stutes silver dolars in one of
the Central American states. The in

by Minister KauBom. It states thut iu
one of the Central American states a
company has beeu organized by Ameri

dollars of the state worth 47 cents, aud
ooiued them into American dollars. It
is said that 3,600,000 ot these dollars

impossible to ship any considerable

If counterfeiting has been going on,
the guilty persons could be punished

for Nansen when It started to the relief

wbicb at present beset tho commercial
world. Country busiues. has lackened
a little .luce tbe first ot the month, but
the oity and lower river trade continue,
oood Wheat and wool remain almost
inactive. The salmon seasou Just
closed wa. an extraordinary cue, and.

lowed tor fishing was lost by a .trike, a
phenomenal run ot fish has brought the
pack up to wtlhln about 10 per cent of
last year. ,

move in sufficient quantities to make a
very active market, although oonsidera
ble is ooming into tbe warehouse east
of the mountains. The output from
the Willamette valley tills season will
be considerably below the average.
