Panama, Nov. 10. According to ad
vices from Chili, a war is imminent be
tween the Argentine Republic and Peru
on one side and Chili on the other.
Peru is perfectly well armed, and her
forces have recently received 100,000
Mannlicher rifles of the latest pattern,
together with other formidable machines
of war. A Chilian gentleman just ar
rived from Peru states that in that re
public the approaching war with Chili
affords the staple for conversation, and
in fact a pretense of friendship is only
put forth as a means of gaining time.
In the Argentine Republic vigorous re
craiting of .both natives and foreigners
is being prosecuted, and the govern
ment, in feveri9h haste, 19 arming
troops. There is no longer any doubt a
secret compact against Chili, offensive
and defensive, exists between the two
republics named, and they are only
awaiting anything that, will serve as
casus belli in order to throw an army
into Tarapaca and another upon the
southern frontier, while strong skir
mishing parties will harass the country
from the Cordilleras. Ihe (Jhilian gov
ernment has tardily opened its eyes to
the threatened invasion, and ordered
the steamers of the C. S. A. V. to be
prepared for immediate incorporation
into the navy, cabling for Captain Pratt
to proceed to Valparaiso at once.
THE ENGLISH PRESS.
How it Feels Over the Election of Cleve
land and Stevenson.
Loxdox, Nov. 10. The Morning Post
says : "The fact of Mr. Cleveland's re
turn by a large majority over the mot
ley crowd who adopted the McKinley
bill cannot be taken as an indication
that extensive fiscal changes are at
hand. The adjustment of necessary
taxation in the interest of the manu
facturers class is one thing: the con
tinuation of taxes which are not re
quired is a very different thing. Per
haps Mr. Cleveland would be stronger
had he declined the aid of Tammany
The Times says : "It is clear that the
democrats are by no means prepared to
commit themselves to free trade. For
the present the party will be satisfied
with the usual arrangements for placat
ing professional "politicians, who have
shown their power more strikingly than
on anv former occasion. The election
was not only a protest against protec
tion, but also a deathblow to the efforts
of party men to manufacture political
capital out of the memories of the civil
The Daily News says: "At present
the country has only decided in favor of
freer trade than before. Cleveland
cannot move fasterjthan the nation, and
the economic heresies of half a lifetime
are not to be extirpated in a day. The
New York machine, which long has
been a vile contrivance for securing the
private ends of self-seeking politicians
has received a deadly blow, for under
the other name of Tammany it has been
compelled to support Cleveland."
The Standard says: "Although the
McKinley protectionists have received a
knock-down blow, the sequel probably
will show that protection has been only
scotched, andjnot killed. As far as this
country is concerned," the article says,
"the victory of One party or the other is
not a matter of political importance.
Whichever party is in power, there arise
occasions on which the United States
government fails in courtesy toward
Great Britain, but everybody knows
that these disagreeable incidents are
merely electoral maneuvers."
The French Victorious.
Paeis, Nov. '10. The French have
captured Cana, near Abomey, the capi
tal of Dahomey, with a loss of sixteen
killed and eighty-two wounded. This
practically ends the campaign. Colonel
Dodds has been made a general.
THE DALLHS SOUTHERN.
A Sample tot of Timber it is Intending
One of the inducements held out for
the construction of-The Dalles Southern
railway, is a belt of timber in the Cas
cade mountains. The forests of the Cas
cade and Coast mountains of Oregon
have often been compared with the pin
eries of the lake region and the New
England states, but few realize the dif
ference. ' The pines of the east are
dwarfed and stunted, when compared
with the giant firs and mighty cedars
that adorn "the slopes of our western
mountains, where the moist ure-liden
and the warm winds of the Pacific keep
them in constant growth the entire year.
Of the belt of timber referred to in con
nection with The Dalles Southern, one
who has visited it says there is miles of
it that will bear, an estimate of from
seven to ten million feet of standing
timber to the quarter section 1 much of
the timber is the giant red cedar, known
as Alaskan cedar, though better in qual
ity than the same timber in that north
ern region, ihis timber is used for
shingles, and is worth $20 per 1,000 feet.
The trees are monsters, reaching often
200 feet in night and eight to twelve
feet in diameter, so large that the logs
would have to be blasted into halves be
fore they could be handled in the mills.
The .fir, which is so much heavier,
tougher and more durable wood than
the pine, also grow to great girth and
tapering more symmetrically than the
cedar, reaches a still greater hicht in
proportion to its base diameter.
To look at this forest one might think
the supplv inexhaustible, but we are
told from the demands elsewhere, and
the inroads made upon timber iu Oregon
that it is rapidly increasing in value.
"With lavish hands have the settlers of
the Pacific elope spent the wealth nature
gave them. .Millions of dollars have
gone up in the smoke, either by the de
liberate act of the homesteader in clear
ing his land, or by the carelessness of
others in setting fires that have spread
over the thousands of acres, killed - the
trees, rendered them valueless as tim
ber, and checked the young growth.
For all this waste we must some time
pay, and the miners are already paying
in the decrease in the amount of water
in the streamB late m the season. The
destruction' of the forest should be
stopped except for commercial purposes,
and some practical method of making
good the waste should be adopted. The
science of forestry may be able to warn
us of the danger of destroying the for
ests, but it cannot pass laws and execute
One of The Most Remarkable Evidences
of Brute Intelligence.
You speak of the cunning nature of
the fox. Reynard will have to take
back seat, when compared with our com
mon wild dog or coyote." Their schem
ing maneuvers in trapping jack rabbits
and stealing chickens, have often been
talked about, but an incident occurred
the other fmorning which places these
wihl canines far ahead of their tame,
domesticated brothers in intelligence.
During the past summer and fall, jack
rabbits have been unusually scarce m
this locality, and besides this, the far
mers have all placed high picket fences
around their hen coopes. Coyotes have
been just as thick, however, and their
melancholy howling is, nightly, audible
to the residents of ihe rural districts

cow, which lingers on the railroad track
too long. Section men say that when a
cow is struck and killed by the night
train the skeleton is all that remains to
be buried in the morning.
Evidently such occurrences are too
rare to satisfy the wilv coyotes. The
other morning, as train No
24 was approaching Echo station
Engineer Marry Mapes noticed a cow on
the track ahead. ' He whistled, and the
cow didn't move. As he got closer, he
noticed two coyotes herding the cow
holding her on the track. He applied
the air Drakes and reversed the engine
and had almost stopped before the cow
made a move to get off the track. The
coyotes trotted off a ways and stopped,
looking back in a sneaking manner, as if
ashamed of having been foiled in their

London, Nov. 10. Further particulars
regarding the finding of the body of the
Duke of Marlborough show that when
the body was found life had be;n extinct
several hours. The Chronicle says: The
late duke of Marlborough was by habit a
breaker of moral law and by desire a '
founder of economic laws. He was a

gqod of the dead is more or less the
hypocritical fashion of the day. So we
may say of his latter years that they
were an improvement on his earlier
ones." The limes publishes an inter
view had with Lord Randolph Church
ill, in which he said: "Please contradict
positively that he died an unnatural
death. From all we have been able to
gather so far, he died of syncope. The:e .
will be a post-mortem examination, and
perhaps an inquest. Of course, that de
pends upon the result of the post-mor-
tern.' xne ximes says: The late
duke was his own worst enemy, and by
scandals in his private life threw away
the certainty of attaining a position of .,
great influence in the country." The
post-mortem examination of the body of
the Duke of Marlborough revealed that
his death was the result of calcarous de- -
generation of a large vessel of the heart.
