A WHOLE ISLAND GONE
Oyer Thirteen Ttomsanft Liies Saifl to
Have Been Lost.
SUNK -BY A VOLCANIC ERUPTION.
The Island of Grand Sangir, was Rich
in Plantations and was
DIVIOISD INTO FOCK KINGDOMS,
Wltli a. Total Area of S7S Square Miles,
and a Population or 13,000 to
San Francisco, July 29. The Austra
lian steamer brings news of a serious
nature from the Malay Archipelago.
The steamer Catterthun, which arrived
at Sydney, N. S. WV, reports that when
she touched at the island of Timor there
was a rumor current that the island of
Sangir bad been destroyed by a volcanic
eruption, and that the whole population,
comprising 13,000 souls, had perished.
The Catterthun steamed for miles
through masses of debris. The Sangir
islands lie to the north of Celebes and
are about fifty in number. The three
largest islands are Great Sangir, Spiauw
and Tagolanday. Great Sangir ia the
isiand supposed to have been destroyed
by the volcanic eruption. The island
had an area of 275 square miles and
was divided into four kingdoms. The
total population was supposed to be
about 13,000 or 14,000. In the north
western part of the island toward the
great mountain of Abu, or the ash moun
tain, which has often been in eruption,
causing much damage and loss of life.
The natives regarded it with' supersti
tious awe and whenever they heard the
rumbling tiiat preceded an outbreak they
resorted to certain mystic rites to oppose
the diety of the mountain. In March of
1856 there was a terrible eruption and
streams of lava and boiling water were
poured forth from the crater. The rich
platations on the mountain-side were
carried away and 3,000 lives were lost.
The Sangirese belong to the Malay race,
are well made and brave, lazy and dirty.
The government ia monarchical, some
what limited by council.
VISITB1 BY A BIO AURORA.
Northern Heavens Jlrillia'nt With the
Display Heavy Electrical St or in.
From the Chicago News, 18th.
An electrical storm of unusual severity
swept over the central and eastern por
tions of the United States Saturday be
tween 11 :30 o'clock a. m. and 4 p. m.
Tolegraph wire9 refused to work and
business at the Western Union and the
Postal teiegraph companies was badly
interrupted all day. Following the elec
trical storm a brilliant aurora borealis
illuminated the sky, reaching around
the northern horizon and almost touch
ing the equator with its east and west
points. Forming first in a bank of dark
green, a rich arch was reared that
reached its highth, half-way to the zen
ith, at 9 :30o'clock. Droppingdown and
shooting up from this were pale-green
shafts, while sheets of yellow light
flashed and waved hehind the phenom
ena. At 10 o'clock a lilac-colored sail
appeared a' little to the west of north
and floated away to the west, changing
its color like the picture from a dissolving-view
camera to a pale pink, a - deep
yellow and black to a mellow green. At
10 :30 o'clock the elements gathered ioi
a final display, and shooting up like a
pointed .wall came the aurora. 'To the
west a section swung off, formed a horse
ehoe and for two minutes a. perfect rep
resentation of an immense waterfall was
made. In the north sheets of yellow
lightning were woven through the col
umns, spurs and streamers. Then the
rosy tint . of the setting sun burned
through this vast curtain and the fires
slowly went out. J In the telegraph of
fices trouble had been ' experienced all
day. Superintendent of Telegraph Con
gor of the Illinois Central'worked like a
beaver) with his wires. "As soon as I
got one line to working," said he, "anr
-other would fall down and in a short
time the first was just as bad as it was
before. The short lines gave us as much
trouble as the long-distance and this
confused me. Finally I concluded that
it was an electrical storm and sat down
to await the end. By 4 o'clock we could
get New Orleans as easily as 43d street
and when I left all was working well."
In the Western Union and Postal tele
graph offices long-distance wires Were
grounded and the instruments worked
with the overcharge of electricity.
A CASE IN POINT.
What Equity has tauur in the Profit
From the Oregonl&n. -- - ,
' Perhaps those who think labor has
equity rights in the profits of capital
will be able to tell ua what equity it has
in the profits A. M. Cannon will pro
bably make in hia speculation on the
cargo of the Abercorc. This vessel was
wrecked on the . beach outside Gray's
harbor, having-on, board a cargo of
2,300 tons of steel rails.' The owners in-
vestigated the question of raising the
wreck, but decided ' that it would not
pay, and finally sold the cargo to Mr..
Cannon, who is now , reclaiming the
property. -, He has built a pier from the
beach to the wreck, a distance of 1750
feet, and is employing divers and other
men to the number f ,35. The divers
receive $10 per day for four hours, and
the other men, who are chiefly ranchers
riving in the neighborhood, receive good
wages, The cost of taking out the rails
and shipping to Portland is about $5 per
ton, and Mr. Cannon's profits will pro
bably exceed $50,000.
The question is, has Mr. Can iiou earn
ed this money, and if not, who has? But
for his perspicacity, resolution and readi
ness to undertake a novel and somewhat
hazardous enterprise, the rails would
still be reposing at the bottom of the sea,
and the original owners would not have
received the amount he paid them "for
the property. Whatever equity interest
may be claimed for the labor that pro
duced the rails assuming that the
wages paid were inequitable was lost
in the wreck, and attaches now only to
the money paid the owners by Mr. Can
non. But such equitv does not exist,
since the rails were a loss instead of a
profit. If there is" any equity whatever,
it is on the side of the . owner, who
should look to the labor that produced
the raila to share with him the loss." It
is evident that any property interest or
equity now in the rails must begin with
them at the bottom of the sea.
The labor that is employed in the
work of taking them out and shipping
them is well. paid. -The divers are re
ceiving large wages for a few hours'
work. The other men are only too glad
to get this work to do, as it helps them
to and their'slender income while mak
ing themselves a home in the forest.
Mr. Cannon has conferred a special
favor on them all by giving them an
unusual and unexpected opportunity to
earn money. These men all have an
opportunity to work, and this property
is rescued from a position where it is
valueless and placed where it possesses
great value, all through the brains,
energy,' executive ability, daring and
capital of one man. He does no more
mental labor than the man who super
intended the building of the pier, and
docs not expend so much physical force
as any of his employes, yet it is a fact
that he earns all the profit that comes
to him as fully as they earn their wages.
His ability to do this is a difference be
tween him and them that the world
recognizes and pays for. Each -is paid
the full measure of value set upon his
labor by the only authority the world
recognizes, an authority that must con
tinue, else property would lose it value
and exertion its stimulus.
A Helena Chump.
. Review. The' Helena Independent
has reached the astonishing conclusion
that the hope for free silver lies in the
election of Grover Cleveland. Henry
Villard, who will get up In the middle of
the night to talk monometallism, is
equally confident that the hope of the
gold standard lies in the same direction.
He lias contributed already $10,000 to
the work of booming 'Cleveland before
the Chicago convention,' and has prom
ised $10,000 more for the compaign. Tn
view of the fact that Cleveland and Vil
lard are close tillicums,and the addition
al fact that every monetary utterance of
the ex-presideut is for the single go!d
standard, we rather incliner to a belief
that the Helena aper is a chump.

Chicago, July 29. As the time for
the official opening of the worlds' fair
aoproaches there are pressing reasons
why the late lamented attempts of cer-
tain citizens' associations t4rVprove
Chicago's external uppearairshould
not be forgotten. For years spasmodic
efforts have been revived at intervals
sustained for a period arid then weakly
relinquished.' Now at the time when
not ourselves alone hot visitors from all
over the civilized world are concerned,
there is additional cause for persistency.
It is dangerous folly to flatter ourselves
that things are well enough as they are.
The streets need cleaning and the alley
ways, which are now depositories for
garbage, must be made decent. The
porvincial custom- of tying horses- to the
curb is yet in vogue. The outlying en
virons are afflicted., with pavements
which are little better than the trackless
prairie, and there are undulating side
walks which toeter briskly when , one
steps on the wrong end of a plank. .''And
in addition to these troubles we have
our old enemies the smoke nuisance, the
sewesage nuisance and the grade cross
ings. Now, if ever, is the time for a
long, strong, ' persistant endeavor to
bring about reform. Chicago must
spruce up. It must be clensed and
sweetened. No street , which will give
place for ' a puddle 'of -water is fitly
paved. : The dingy, acrid atmosphere
must be purified, and we hope it will
not be many years before that viscid
pool of fluid nastiness, the Chicago river,
will be washed as clean as a roadside
spring. When , properly-v cleaned and .
paved this city will be one of tl most
impressive and palatial in the world.
Without the instaut and pel sis tent pro
secution of the reforms mentions), how
ever, it runs the risk of being called at -the
very least, a mighty and ehterprisi g
town in her progress, but a slattern in
langeru Hide of a Youth.
Klamath Star.' Grover Moore, ' a 7
year old bov at Klamath Falls, lit from
his pony on -. Saturday morning and '
flew to his mother's arms with a bleat as
joyful as that of a long lost lammie ju.st
returned to his matnmle. He was the
gladdest kid in Klaruutli iu?t then.
! Friday morning while out hunting with
his nineteen-year old brother, he fell be
hind and eoufdtr't get to the front any
more. Ho wandered hither and thither -on
the back of his ,Kny, his heart grow
ing more and more dismal as he rode
farther and farther into the gloomy
forest shade of the mountain). He rode
around theedges of precipices so narrow
that the searching parties had to dis
mount and travel afoot, and so deep that
a fall would have blended both boy and
pony in one red burial. One of the
Germans of .Swau Lake .found him in
the evening seated .on '. his pony and
weeping bitterly for his mamma. .The
kind, man kept . him until morning,
when his brother found him and brought
him home. He told his mamma confi
dentially that he would never leave her
any mi r.'. -
