Williamson in the Second.
Portland, April 13. With a storm
of ayes that resounded throughout
the convention hall, John N. William
son was unanimously nominated for
re-election to Congress by the Second
District Republican Convention this
afternoon. His nomination was fol
lowed by thunderous applause, in
which the Moody delegates partici
pated with a vim. Williamson was
placed in nomination by N. C. Rich
ards, of Snmpter, in an eloquent ad
dress, in which he paid a high tribute
to the personality of the Congress
man. His speech was seconded by Judge
J. C. Moreland, of Multnomah.
A burst of applause followed when
N. Whealdon, of Wasco, arose, and
on behalf of that county Moody's
stronghold moved that nominations
be closed, and that the unanimous
vote of the convention be cast for
Williamson. As already stated, the
motion carried unanknouslv.

The following dispatch to the Czar
has been received from Vicerov Ales-
"Mnrkden, April 13. A telegram
has just been received from Lieuten
ant-General Stoessel, commander of
the military forces at Port Arthur. I
regret to report to your majesty that
the Pacific fleet has suffered irrepar
able loss by the death of its brave
and capable commander, who was lost,
together with the Petropavlovsk."
Another dispatch from Viceroy
Alexief to the Czar S3ys:
"According to reports from the
commandant at Port Arthur, the bat
tleships and cruisers went out to
meet the enemy, but owing to the
enemy receiving reinforcements, mak
ing his total strength 30 vessels, our
squadron returned to the road-stead,
whereupon the Petropavlovsk touched
a mine, resulting in her destruction.
Grand Duke Cyril, who was on board
was saved. He was slightly injured
The whole squadron then re-entered
port. The Japanese are now off Cape
Liao Shan. No reports had been re
ceived from the acting commander of
the fleet to the time this dispatch was
Lewis and Clerk Exposition is now of
National Concern.
Washington, April 13. President
Roosevelt this morning signed the
Lewis and Clark Exposition bill in the
presence of Senator Mitchell, thereby
making it a law.
The pen used in .signing will be
presented to the Oregon Historical
Society and will be on exhibition dur
ing the fair. Steps will immediately
be taken looking to the appointment
of a Government board as a prelimi
nary to preparation of plans for the
Government buildings.
Senator Mitchell, on the signing of
the bill by the President, extended to
him, on behalf of all concerned, sin
cere thanks, and the the President
expressed himself as greatly gratified
that he had opportunity of signing a
bill in the interest of the Portland
With great interest the President
scanned the measure, although he re
marked while doing so that he knew
all about the contents. He then
signed it making it a law of the
United' States, thus adding to the
great enterprise of the Oregon coun
try's people the seal of the nation's
approval and far reaching aid.
Senator Mitchell was interviewed
soon after it had been announced that
the President had signed the import
ant document.
He said:
"All the items of the bill are very
satisfactory and the fact that we are
benefited to the extent of between
$190,000 and $200,000 by reason of
the transfer of the government ex
hibits from St. Louis, is gratifying,
aa it will bring the total money bene
fit to the exposition up to about
"But aside from this the very fact
that by this legislation the national
government becomes identified with
the exposition, thus lifting it out of
the class of the mere local exposi
tions and making it national, will be
of inestimable value in the success of
the exposition and is equivalent of
itself, in my judgment, to from $500,
000 to $1,000,000.
"Take it altogether the exposition
and all connected with it.and all who
contributed to tho passago of the
measure, it seems to me are entitled
to hearty congratulations."
State Convention Nominates. Har
mony Throughout.
Special to the Plaixdealer:
Portland, April 14. State con
vention met here this morning and
proceeded to business. B. L. Eddy,
of Tillamook, was selected as chair
man and Harrison Allen, of Clatsop,
secretary. E. O. Potter, of Eugene,
Lane county, was nominated for Cir
cuit Judge to succeed J. W. Hamil
ton. Geo. M. Brown, of Douglas

To Improve Currency Conditions.
Washington, April 11. A report
from the House committee on bank
ing and currency recommending the
passage of the bill, ''to improve cur
rency conditions," was filed in the
House today by Chairman Fowler.
The first section of the bill repeals
the law which prohibits customs re
ceipts from being deposited in Na
tional banks. The result of the pres
ent law in this matter, the report
says is unnecessarily to tie up
money of the country. The report
says that if states and municipalities
should lock up the proceeds of local
taxation as the National Government
locks up its receipts, the effect would
be disastrous, and yet there is as
much reason for such a course in the
one as in the other.
The second section repeals the
monthly $3,000,000 limit on bank note
retirement. The report says the re
peal of this restriction will give to
the National Bank note circulation
all of the elasticity with which it is
possible for a bond-secured circula
tion to have.
The recoinage of silver dollars in
to subsidiary silver coins is provided
in the third section of the bill. The
limit of 100,000,000 as the total
amount of subsidiary silver coins that'
can be in existence at any one time
is repealed by this section. There is
in the treasury 578,012,099 silver
dollars. The Secretary says it is
worth in bullion less than half of its
face value in dollars. It is this mon
ey that the bill proposes to recoin in
to subsidiary silver as rapidly as the
Secretary shall order. In this re
coinage, there is estimated a profit to
the Government of seven cents on
each dollar. Relief of the Treasury
Department in its inability to meet
the demand for small bills, owing to
the manner in which present law lim
its their issuance, there is sought to
be remedied by the removal of this
Explosion on Missouri.
Pensacola, Fla., April 13. Five
officers and nine men were killed by
an explosion in the turret of the bat

The dead are: Lieutenant David

St. Paul, April 13 At the close
of arguments in the Harriman-North-

occurred which created a mild sensa

Morgan Combination had sccurtid

Great Northern holdings in an im
proper manner, when Mr. Root re
plied that neither Mr. Hill, Mr. Mor
gan nor tho Northern Securities Com
pany had acquired one sharo of Great
Northern or Northern Pacific stock
since the decree had been granted,
as to have done so would have bciiii
criminal contempt of court. Mr.
Guthrie thereupon replied that if it
had not been secured after the do

Washington, D. C, April 13 Six
of the 12 Mormon witnesses for whom
summons have been issued by the
senate committee of privileges am
elections for their appearance to tes
tify in the Smoot case, have disap
peared. All efforts to find them
have been in wuii.
Chairman Burrows sent word to
President Smith today that it is very
unfortunate for the church that these
people have gone into hiding. Bishop
Grant is one of these, and is known
to be in Europe.
Notwithstanding the absence of
some witnesses, the investigation of
the protests against the retention of
his seat by Senator Reod Smoot of
Utah was rvsumed today by the sen
ate committee.
It is expected that numerous wit
nesses will be heard this week, intend
ing several ;Hiciab of tho Mormon
church and a number of anli-Mormoa
citizens of Utah.
These latter are expected to pro
duce additional evidence that the
first presidency and tho 12 apostles,
in there exercise of supreme authori
ty, are political dictators and control
the political action jf the church.

Witnesses also will be called to tes
tify that Senator Smoot, as one of
the apostles, encourages the practice
of polygamy and polygamous cohabi

to censure any one known to be guilty
of it.
Trains Tied Up.
Ashland, Or., April 13. A big
slide of earth and rocks 20 miles
south of Ashland this morning about
9 o'clock will, it is estimated, delay
traffic on the Southern Pacific from
12 to 18 hours. The warm weather
has melted the snow in the moun
tains and to this is due tho slide. A
steam shovel and wrecking crew from
this city are at work removing the
Passenger train No. 15, from Port

Biz Insular Case.
Washington, April 13. A case
involving claims to the amount of
over $7,000,000, iudireotfy ks argued
today before tho Court of (Hanns. It
was brought by Warner1, Barnes &
Co., a British corporation closing busi
ness in New York and Manila, to re
cover $80,000 in duties paid on goods
imported into tho Philippine- Islands
between the signature of tho treaty
of peaco with Spain and March 2,
liOZ, when congress established a
regular tariff in place, of military
tariff. If the claim is maintained, a
large number of similar claims must
be paid, and in addition probably will
validate claims for a refund of duties
on goods imported in Spanish ships
during the time specified, under, the
terms of the Paris treaty.
Lawyer's Big Fee.
Helena, .Mont., April 13 There
is to be no rehearing before the su
preme court in the case of Forrester
& MacUinniss against the Boston &
Montana Consolidated Copper & Sil
ver Mining company, involving a $50,
000 attorney's foes. This question
was decided by the supreme court
ye-ierday, when an order was made
defying the motion.
This is part of the noted case
wherein Judge Clancy awarded T R
Hinds $200,000 for five days' sen-ices
as receiver for the Boston & "Mon
tana company. The company con
tested the fee of $50,000 for Hinds'
lawyer, but the court has declined to
reduce this, although that of the re
wi'. orlias been materially cut down.
Spanish Premier Stabbed.
B uck:.oNA, A'iril 12. Premier
i Maura was attacked and wounded to
day by a would-be aisasiin, armed
with kitchen knife, while entering
the palace of the Council-General.
?enor Maura's wound is not seriqus.
The Premier had just returned
from attending a requiem service cel
ebrated for the repose of the soul of
the late Queen lobelia, ami was en
tering the palace, when a youth 19
years old, named Joaquin Miguel Ar-
tao, approached, and shouting, "Good
day, long live anarchy," struck the
premier in the chest with a knife he
iLad -.oJealcd in his handkerchif.
Ariao was immediately seized and
imprisoned. The Premier was able
himself to send to Madrid tho news
of the attempt on his life.
Iite tonight a semi-official report
of the attack on the Premier was is
sued, arcordidg to which the assail
ant held concealed a kitchen knife
with which he stabbed the Premier;
I but the force of the blow was broken,
jaml its directum diverted by tho
! heavy lace on the Minister's coat, rcr
' suiting in on'v a alight scratch under
the sixth rib. A doctor attached to
King Alphonso's suite examined the
Premier and prescribed a few hours'
rest. His Majesty sent a messenger
to inquire concerning the attack and
as to the Prime Minister's condition.
Joaquin Miguel Artao, the assailant
was employed as a domestic. Ho is.
an anarchist, and when arrested at-
1-. .!l
tempted suicide by dashing his head
against the wall.
According to another account, the
Premier cooly drew the knife from
his clothing and threw it on a seat in
his carriage, after which ho entered
the pahce, walked upstairs and tele
phoned to Minister of the Interior
Guerra at Madrid, saying:
"I have been stabbed. Don't be
alarmed. Tho wound is not serious.'
King Alforiso's program has not
been changed and ho will continue his
tour today, but will not bo accom
panied by Premier Maura, who will
remain here in pursuance of his doc
tor's advice, notwithstanding the fact
that his condition is perfectly satis
factory and that he is anxious to ac
company His Majesty.
Several tvorkingmen have been ar
rested for publicly expressing their
approval of Artoa's attempt on tho
life of tho Premier during tho demon

The National Anthem.
It is a curious fact that ho frequently
some good American arises with a Hat
assertion that we have no national an
tin in, or, at any rate, that we aro not
quite sure whether it ia "Hail, Colunv

"laiikce Doodle," or "The Star Span

ever. Tho source of doubt is to be
found in tho fact that the people of
these United States havo never snontn-
neoiiHly nnd of one accord chosen no an-
thorn, us the hnglieh did in 1715. But
there has never been any question that
the sentiment surrounding the Hag hie
influenced tho great majority to prefer
"The Star Spangled Banner" an t c
national hymn.
It has lieen made ho officially by ti .
Uftage of tho federal government. It i

know this, for only a ftmall iwrrcntii .
