St. Petersburg, Dec. 2. Tho guards

rumors are current, including the asser

A conference was held at Count
Witte's residence last night to consider
the demands of the telegraphers. Count
Witte has declined to receive a deputa

he sent a note to the deputation recom
mending that the strikers address them
selves to their Immediate chiefs.

plenipotentiaries in Portsmouth, and
which was being sent to the mikado,

CUT OFF FROM OUTSIDE WORLD
Operatives Driven From St. Peters
burg Telegraph Office.
St. Petersburg, Dec. 1. Communi
cation with the outside world ceased a)
o'clock this afternoon, when a strike
called in the general telegraph
office. By a ruse, however, the man
agement succeeded in reopening the
cable shortly after 6 o'clock.
At 3 o'clock, when tho strike went
into operation, many of the Russian
operators were reluctant to, leave, but a
walking delegate promptly smashed
bottle of hydrochloric acid on the floor,
and the fumes soon drove the men from
The Danish cable operators remained
at their posts, but the receiving clerks
having fled, messages were refused for
three hours. Although troops occn
pied the building, the employee who'
were willing to work were terrorized,
and weie afraid to return.
M. Slevastianoff, superintendent of
posts and telegraphs, declares that the
government has ample evidence to
prove that the strike is a political con
spiracy planned by the revolutionaries,
the demand for the reinstatement of
the discharged leaders of the telegraph
era' union at Moscow being a mere pre
text, which, however, has deceived
many operators and other employes of
the service. M. Slevastianoff declares
that it is impossible for the govern
ment to yield or to be held up by its
own servants, and that it is determined
to fight out the matter to the bitter

Washington, Dec. 1. Senator Piles
today talked with Secretary Hitchcock
about the irrigatioon situation in
Washington, but was unable to learn
nytbing positive as to the disposition

OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
WEALTH IN HANDS,
AID FROM STATE.
Necessary in Road Construction
Corvallis The voice of the Good
Roads convention is unanimously for
state aid in tho construction of public
roads. No resolution to this effect
was adopted, but throughout tho two
days' session tho idea camo to tho front
at unexpected times and always with
tho apparent approval of tho delegates.
It was injectod into tho proceedings by
an Alsea farmor, who declared that
there ought to bo state aid, so tbat
Portland would havo to help pay tho
prico, because all that Portland is or
all that she hopes to bo has come or is
to come from the products of tho farms
minea and mihs in the territory o
which she is the commercial mistress
This brought Judge Webster into tho
open, and ho declared his approval oi
the sontiment expressed by the Alsoan,
and announced a belief that state aid
should be vouchsafed in road construe
tion, tho state to pay about 50 conts
every time a certain community strug
gling with a road raised 50 cents.
HAILEY ON SUPREME BENCH
Governor Chamberlain Will Appoint
Salem Governor Chamberlain haa
announced that he will appoint T. G.
Hailey, of Pendleton, to Bucceed Jus
tice wolverton on the supreme bench.
This appointment was expected, hut
came much sooner than anticipated, for
there is really no vacancy as yet.
Governor Chamberlain hae been con
sidering tho matter of an appointment
to tho supreme bench ever since it be
came probable that one of the Buporior
judges would he appointed to the Fed
oral bonch. He had therefore weighed
tho qualifications of available men and
was ready to make a selection.
By announcing the appointment at
once, the governor has saved tne
trouble of receiving and considering
the flood of recommendations and ap
plications that would ooon have bean
Books for Christmas.
People who buy books for children
usually take what they can get most
easily, or what the clerk recommends.
Everyone likes to make a good invest
ment, to get value received. The Ore
gon .Library commission makes this
possible in so far as children's books
are concerned, for it has publisebd for
free distribution a list of something
over a hundred titles oi children's
books for Christmas gifts and for the
home library. There are notes on the
books, and prices are given ranging
from 15 cents to $3. Any one may get
this list by applying to the secretary of
the commission at Salem.
Big Ranch Sold.
Pendleton One of the biggest ranch
deals in the history of Eastern Oregon
was just consummated here, in which
the ranches and sheep of Charles Cun
ningham, the Umatilla county sheep
king, were sold to a company composed
of J. N. Burgess, J. M. Keony, R. A.
Kelsay and Dan J. Malarkey. The
price paid was in the neighborhood of
1200,000. The deal has been pending
since October, when an option was giv
en the purchasers for 15,000. About
20,000 acres, 20,000 sheep and 1,000
tons of nay are included in me ueai.
More Smallpox at Eugene.
Eugene Two more cases of small
pox have been reported to tho health
authorities, and the bouses of A. J.
Pickard and Warren Luckey are now in
quarantine. Earl Luckey, son of War
ren Luckey, waa taken down and began
to break out while in the school room,
but it is not believed the other stu
dents were endangered, because the dis
ease had not reached the stage where it
would become contagious. Strict meas
ures are in force for stamping out the
disease as. quickly as possible.
May Replace Woolen Mills.
Albanv A proposition which would
allow Albany to regain some of the pay
roll she lost through the burning ol tho
Albany woolen mill lust spring, haa
been received from an Eastern man
who will remove a six set woolen mill
plant to Albany, if local capitalists will
furnish the buildings. Besides having
double the capacity of the old mill, the
new concern proposes to operate in con
nection with the woolen mill a knitting
mill and a clothing manufactory.

Much Work for Wolverton.
Salem There aro 84 caseB to bo do-
cided by the Supremo court, presuma
bly before Judge Wolverton leaves the
bench. These cases havo all been
argued before tho court. Twenty-four
of these cases were heard at tho recent
