FREE COINAGE. A Conspiracy to Flood the Country With Counterfeit Money. 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.

SNOW IX KANSAS. Welcomed by the Farmers and Will Protect the Winter Wheat. Kansas City, Dec. 24. The first snow of the season fell to-day in Northwest Missouri and Northern Kansas. Some of the incoming trains on the western roads were delayed two or three hours A dispatch from Wichita, Kansas, says a soaking rain fell in the' southern part of Kansas to-day. It was just what the country needed and will extinguish the threatened invasion" of the hessian fly. A special from Topeka says the state board of agriculture received telegraphic advices from the northern half of the state to the effect the snow storm to-day had covered the winter wheat. The Bnow was badly needed. POOR NEW YORK. . The Predicted Snow Storm Arrlres In tense Cold. New York, Dec. 26. The predicted snow storm arrived this morning. - Ped estrians few and far between. ' The sur face cars are making ' poor'pi-owss in" spite of the fact that four horses are trv ing to do the usual work of two. Navi gation on the rivers and bay is seriously interfered with. So far no accidents are reported. 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.

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 government officers. . r 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 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 beneficial. . 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. Director Appointed. Washington, Dec. 26. The President to-day appointed Joseph W. Haddock, of Nebraska, government director of the Union Pacific Railroad Co., vice James W. Savage, deceased. General Taylor Suicides. Mount Holly, Dec. 26.

The ther mometer is 30 deg. below zero this morning. 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.
