A Conspiracy to Flood the Country With
Pittsburg, Dec. 26. A conspiracy to
flood the United States with counterfeit
silver dollars ' has been nn earthed.
Nineteen Italians are already under
arrest and $1,100 in . spurious coin se
cured. The money was brought from
the Central depot in New York to Pitts
burg by a gang of Italians employed to
pass it. According to information
given by the prisoners, similar gangs
have been sent from New York to other
cities, but the arrested men could not
tell what particular cities are being

POOR NEW YORK. .
The Predicted Snow Storm Arrlres In
New York, Dec. 26. The predicted

estrians few and far between. ' The sur
face cars are making ' poor'pi-owss in"

The Indians Still on Deck.
BattUe Creek, S. D., Dec. 26. The
weather is cold and the rivers are frozen
solid. A company of Cheyenne scouts
are encamped at the mouth of Battle
Creek. Two attempts ' have beeu made
by the hostiles, who number about
eighty, to break into their camp. The
first attack was made by only a few of
the Indians who were quickly repulsed
with a loss of two killed and several
wounded, and it is thought one fatally
hurt. The t second attack was made
after dark by the whole band led by
Kicking Bear. Volley after volley was
fired on both sides and a destroying fire
was kept up for an hour or more. It is
not known how many hostiles were
killed but judging from reports of scouts
there must have been several killed.
Troops sent to the scene report every
thing quiet and no hostiles in sight.

SAN FRANCISCO ALAUMED.
Fears that her Commercial Supremacy
may d uucaroca.
San Francisco, Dec. "24. "When the
Empress of India, Empress of Japan
and Empress of China begin running on
the Canadian Pacific route from Victoria
to Yokohama and Hong Kong, and that
time is less than three months distant,"
says the Examiner this morning, "Sari
Francisco will be facing a situation in
which the commercial supremacy of the
Pacific coast will have to be fought for or
abandoned. New ships of 5400 tons
burden and nineteen knots speed, fitted
with all modern improvements and mak
ing the trip from Hong Kong to Vancou
ver in twelve days, are not to be over
matched in the race for public favor by
antiquities like the City of Pekin and
the Oceanic. ' When such vessels are
fitted out as cruisers with equipment of
rapid firing guns ready to be mounted at
a day's notice," they becomg political
as well as a commercial menaces. We
have heard from time to time of new
ships ordered by the Pacific Mail Com
pany. They cannot be built and put
into service any too soon. Meanwhile
the people of California should wake up
We cannot do as much as the national
government has1, but we can do some'
thing. We should adopt every possible
means of making this port attractive to
shipping. We should so amend the
constitution as to exempt American
vessels in foreign trade from all state
and local taxation. The trifle of
revenue we draw from that source is not
worth considering in comparison with
the discouraging effect of such taxes on
trade. Wje should abolish all unnecess
ary port charges and reduce the necess
ary ones to the lowest possible figure.
San Francisco should be made the
cheapest port in the world, instead of
the dearest, as it is said to be at present
All this we can ' fo ourselves, without
waiting for the national government to
act. If we are interested in maintain
ing San Francisco against her. vigorous
young rivals we must do it at once."
BEST ST8E1 KNOWN.
A One-Inch Bar -Stands a Strain of Over
' 180' Ton. - V .
Reading, Pa., Dec. 24. At a test of
steel manufactured at the Carpenter
steel works in this city, a one-inch bar
broke at a strain of 243,844 pounds, be
ing 20,000 pounds in excess bf the high
est record authoritively known.; The
test was made under the supervision of
PLATING WITH FIRE.
The German Emperor- Will ' Test the
Temper of the Paris Populace.
Paris, Dec. 24. Regarding Emperor
William's proposed visit to this city La
Liberie, although sure a majority of the
people will abstain from offensive
demonstration, thinks the German
emperor coming to Paris, will be play
ing with fire. '
- It Was a Slap at Blaine.
Washington, Dec. 25. The veto of
the bill for a public building at Bar
Harbor, Me., is regarded by some of Mr.
Blaine's warmest friends as a slap in
the face by the president. Bar Harbor
is the summer home of the secretary of
state and he has been greatly interested
in building up that little town, and is
supposed to be behind the movement for
a public building which passed the house
some time ago. A similar bill was vetoed
by Cleveland and as a matter of fact
while so many cities -of so much more
merit are greatly in need of public build
ings it was the proper thing to do. Of
course, considerable political signifi
cance is attached to the case on account
of Secretary Blaine's interest in Bar
Harbor. One of Mr. Blaine's warmest
friends in the senate said to-day sar
castically : "That was a fine Christmas
present Ben Harrison gave Jim Blaine,
that Bar Harbor veto."
Not the Last of it Yet.
New York, Dec. 22, A cable from
London say the Parnell agony is by no
means over. The queen's proctor-has
had all the evidence and documents con
nected with the divorce placed before
him -and he is engaged in instituting in
quiries with the view of intervening be
fore the decree nisi is made absolute.
This action has been taken in conse- !
quence of Parnell 'a speech at Dublin.
There is good reason to think that Par- j
nell m:idn a stv-teiaent le;'.dl.i to a be'.-f f !
that there was another, side to the case, j
with a view of forcing the proctor to
intervene. H the proctor does not take
this course, it will undoubtedly produce
a great sensation, as it is a well-known
fact that a great deal of evidence was
suppressed at the trial. .
' The Forfeiture Act. -
"Washington, Dec. 25. In response to
a message sent - by Senator Dolph to
Secretary Noble yesterday, that official
replied that the business in reference .to
the forfeiture act had been attended to
and that instructions will be printed
delay. It will only take a few weeks for
these instructions to reach the land
offices in Oregon, and the forfeited landd
may then be taken up under the laws.
IT WILL BE SENSATIONAL.
Portland's Mayor Sued by Mrs. Collier
for 910,400. -
. Portland, Dec 26. Mrs. M.Collier
against Van B. DeLashmutt mayor of
this city to recover the sum of $ft),400.
The complaint is of a sensational nature
and is characterized by the defendant as
an attempt to extort money.
The department of state has been in
formed by the United States minister at
Bogota that Senator Don Climaco Cal
dren and Senor Don Julo Rangifo will
represent the republic 'of Columbia at
the International American Monetary
Conference to be held in Washington
on Jan. 5. The department is also ad- -vised
that a delegate from Venezuela is
in New York, but his name is not given.
Value Cannot Yet Be Fixed.
London, Dec. 24: Professor Stuart, of.
Sydney University, sent to Berlin to
study the Koch treatment, reports, after
studying hundreds of cases, that he
arrived at the conclusion that the pre
cise value of the Koch remedy cannot
yet be fixed. In advanced cases it
proved positively injurious, but in early
stages of the disease was apparently
Boomers Watching the Cherokee Strip.
Arkansas City, Ks., Dec. 24. Boom
ers in this city are excited over a report
ilia tliA fninmiciaij-t on1 fVtaasi-hrrnci
had closed negotiations for the strip
and that President Harrison will open
out the lot for settlement by proclama
tion. The fact that the soldiers have
been removed south of the city lends
color to the report. Boomers every
where are getting ready to move, only
waiting for a confirmation of the report.
A Railroad Wreck.
Chicago. HI., Dec. 26. A special from
Caldwell, Ohio, says : News has just
been -received there of a wreck on Duck
Creek Railway several miles from that
city. Fifteen persons are reported
killed and a large number injured. No
estimate can be made of the number.
Washington, Dec. 26. The President

Union Pacific Railroad Co., vice James
W. Savage, deceased.

M. E. Church Christmas Tree.
The Christmas services at the Method
ist church Wednesday evening were
largely attended and a most enjoyable
time experienced by those present. The
services consisted of singing by the choir
and prayer by Rev. H. Brown, followed
by an interesting and entertaining pro
gramme of singing and recitations by the
little folks, after which came the distri
bution of the presents, which loaded a
larire nnd h tin rlan m fvoa
The distribution of presents was attended
to amid many exclamations of delight
and susprise from the younger portion of
thu a.-.Alnn Va..l J.
receiving some token of friendship, or
kindly remembrance, which will mark
the eveniug for some time to come, as a
bright spot in the past and one that will
be remembered. .
For the New City on the Colombia Rlrer.
It is now a moral certainty that very .
soon North Dalles is to receive another
enterprise of greater importance to it
th-ui tha one already started -and our
people must not be surprised if, at least,
two manufactories are soon put .
underway. . Mr. O. D. Taylor accom
panied by a gentleman from Portland
leave for the east on an extended trip, in
a few days and on their return we shall
expect to see lively times at North -Dalles.
Back of the proposition at North
Dalles are men who are quietly working
out the rapid development of the north
side of the river. They are financially
strong and able to put into practical
operation improvements of very large
magnitude. The next ninety days wiil
change the appearance at North" Dalles
and our people will then know what we
meant when we adviped them to pur
chase something in this young city.
