After Making a Prize of German Liner, Russia
Agrees to Quit Her Piracy.
Suez, July 23. The Hamburg-American line
steamer Scandia has arrived here, flying the Russian
flag, and with a Russian prize crew on board. She
was captured in the Red Sea by the Russian volun
teer cruiser St. Petersburg.
St. Petersbubg July 23 2:35 p. m. The As
sociated Press is able to announce that Russia has in
formally notified Great Britain that orders have been
issued to the Russian cruisers in the Red Sea not to
arrest any more merchantmen, and it has been agreed
between the two powers that if, pending the receipt
of these orders by the captains of the St. Petersburg
and the Smolenski, any other ships should be stopped
and held as prizes, these acts shall be regarded as not
having taken place and the ships concerned at once re
leased. The Russian Government has given formal as
surances to Germany that there will be no reputation
of the Prinz Heinrich incident. Whether this in
cludes a definite notification that the converted volun
teer fleet steamers now in Jthe Red Sea will cease
stopping neutral vessels is not yet clear, although it
is believed it does.

It appears that for some time past
Korn has annoyed the woman and every
time that her husband was away he
would lake advantage of the fact and
press his attentions upon her. This an
noyance finally became unbearable and
the dispute about the rope caused a cul
mination of the trouble.
Mrs. Kin man says that when she got
the gun Korn was approaching her and
she warned Him to advance no further.
He still came on, however, and she fired,
intending to hit him about the knees,
but in her excitement her aim was bad.

The statement made that Mrs. Kin-
man remained in hiding yesterday is re
sented by her and her attorney. Her
husband was in Eugene at the time of
the Bhooting and hastened home. In
the meantime, Mrs. Kinman did not
know the best thing to do, but when
her husband arrived they agreed to
coma to Eugene, where she intended to
give herself dp to the sheriff.
Word from Mabel at noon today
brought the information that Korn was
getting better and that there was a good
chance for his recovery.

The almost unprecedented feat of causing the public
gambling-houses to suspend operations was accomp
lished by Sheriff Word yesterday afternoon, between
4:30 and 5 o'clock.
Contrary to what might have been supposed by
casual observers of the violent efforts recently made
by some officials and many insistent reformers, it was
not a difficult task. The sheriff merely visited the
various gambling-houses and gave a simple order to
ahut down the games, saying he would raid any house
whose owners refused to obey the mandate.
Within the time it took the Sheriff to make the
rounds of the different resorts, the money and para
phernalia was put away, the players and employes dis
missed, and gambling was no more. It is estimated
that the closing of the games will throw 700 persons
out of work. After the Sheriff had gone, dealers and
habitues gathered in knots on the streets adjoining
the gambling-houses and discussed the situation in
Yesterday afternoon District Attorney John Man

Government Land in Douglas County to be
Contracts have just been let by the Surveyor
General of Oregon for the survey of certain govern
ment lands in Douglas County. The lands in ques
tion are as follows: Portion of township 29 s, r 9 west
situated on Rice Creek; the northern portion of town
ship 30 s, and 12 sections of the west 4 of township
29, all in r 1 west and situated on the South Umpqua
river, east of Perdue; a small portion of township 32
s, r 3 west, situated on Cow Creek, east of Binger.
The contract for surveying the land in township
29 hs been let to County Surveyor Chas. E. Roberts,
of this city. Mr. Roberts submitted bids for all of the
work, but someone else has been awarded a contract.
Who it is Surveyor Roberts does not know.
As the award of contracts are subjected to the ap
proval of Secretary of the Interior Hitchcock, survey
ing will probably not begitf for at least two weeks yet.
After the surveys are completed and approved by Sec
retary Hitchcock, the lauds will be thrown open to
timber and homestead entry.
THE McVEY FAMILY ARRESTED.
tharles McVey, Wife and Daughter Bessie-
Alleged that they Threw Child Away.
Eugene, July 23. As the outcome of the evidence
concerning the attempt to get rid of or to kill the
nude baby found in the brush on the banks of the riv
er on the evening of July 5th, Constable Jack Smith
last evening arrested and put in the county jail to
await trial Charles McVey, wife and daughter Bessie.
The charge is attempted manslaughter. The girl,
Bessie McVey, is charged with having given birth to
the child and her father and mother are charged with
having been accessory to the act of throwing the baby
out of the way to perish.
The time set for the preliminary hearing of the
case before Justice Wintermeier is on Monday July
25 at 1 o'clock p. m.
Meantime the trio will be kept in the county jail.
They stoutly claim that they had nothing to do with

French of Grand Rapids, Mich., who
has been in Oregon for some time, and
who has quietly secured possession of
right-of-way for a trolley lino between
Portland and the capital.
Mr. French represents Detroit capi
talists, who have recently extended the
trolley system of that city and have
found out what a paying enterprise 'sub
urban trolley systems can be made.
Although still reticent in regard to
plans, Mr. French admits that the pro
posed line parallels the Southern Pacific
Railroad on the east side of the Willam
ette river, from Canby to Salem. The
right-of-way is 50 feet wide, and adjoins
that of the Southern Pacific on the east.
The new line is to run through New Era

STRIKE GROWS MORE COMPLICATED
Allied Trades May Join in Strike-Unions Send in
an Ultimatum-Packers Reject it
Chicago, July 23. Attempts to settle the second
strike of the packing trades failed today, and tonight
'the Butchers' Union and allied organizations, after a
long conference, sent an ultimation to the representa
tives of the packers, demanding a settlement of the
strike before Monday morning, or penalty of a general
walkout of all union employes at work in the stock
ysrds at 7 o'clock Monday morning.
At noon the conferees gave up hope of reaching
an understanding, and the deliberations were brought
to an abrupt ending, after the packers had expressed
a desire to live up to the terms of the arbitration agree
ment reached last Wednesday, right and wrongs that
might have been commited by their foreman and
superintendents, and had announced to the union men
the name of Samuel McLean, of the National Packing
Company, to represent them on the Arbitration Board
provided for in the agreement which settled the origi
The union men refused positively to consider that
agreement valid, on the ground it had been broken by
the packers. They then retired to the office of the
Federation of Labor, where an ultimatum to the pack
ers was prepared under the direction of Micheal J.
Donnelly, president of the Butchers' Union. Thomas I.
Kidd, of the American Federation of Labor, and rep
