WEYLER IS DISGUSTED
Rumored That He Has Tend
ered His Resignation.
THINGS ARE IN BAD SHAPE
Prime Minister of Spain Said to Hare
Accepted tbe Captain-Ueneralcy
' of Cuba.
New Yobk, March 29. A World dis
patch from Key West says : The Morgan
line steamer which arrived from Havana
today reported that it was stated semi
officially in Havana that Captain-General
Weyler, in spite of all 6tories to the
contrary, had become disgusted and
tendered hia resignation, because things
are in a bad Ehape. Ik was an open
secret in Havana,' that owing to this de
termination to resign and tbe seeming
determination of the United States to
recognize the belligerency of Cuba, all
parties have come together in Madrid
and the prime minister of Spain will re
sign to accept the captain-generalcy of
The Iowa Launched.
Philadelphia, March 28. The launch
of tbe battle-ship Iowa from Cramp's
shipyard today partook more of the na
ture of a national event than any similar
one since Mrs. Cleveland christened the
St. Louis nearly two years ago. Vice
President Stevenson headed the delega
tion from Washington, which included
Secretary of the Navy Herbert, Attorney-General
Harmon, Secretary of Agri
culture Morton, and a large party of sen
ators and representatives. The Iowa
party was led by Govenor Drake, whose
daughter Mary Lord Drake, broke the,
bottle of champagne over the vessel's
prow and gave it its name.
The Iowa will be, when completed,
the most advanced type of battle-ship in
the United States navy. The appro
priation provides that the vessel ehall
cost, "exclusive of armanent and speed
premiums, not more than $4,000,000."
The Iowa will be a formidable battle
ship. THE POLITICAL ARENA.
Straggle Between. Reed and SIcKlnley
Factions in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma City, O. T., March 28.
The. republican territorial convention to
day to elect delegates to the St. Louis
convention brought on a bitter struggle
between the Reed -and McKinley fac
tione. Tonight the Heed men are claim'
ing a victory. However, Reed was not
indorsed by the platform, and the Reed
victory is limited to the voting down of
resolutions indorsing McKinley, the de
feat of the six McKinley candidates for
delegates to St. Louis, and the election
of a delegation said to be in favor of
Reed. The platform declares for the
use of both gold and silver.
A Massachusetts Convention.
Boston, March 28. The ninth repub
. lican congressional district convention
today, to elect two delegates to the na
tional convention, resulted in the selec
tion of Reed men. Resolutions pledg
ing the delegates to Reed were read, but
objection being made to instructing tbe
delegates, the matter was laid on the
table. Jesse M. Gove, of East Boston,
and G.' A. Hibbard, of Boston, were
elected by acclamation.
Cullom's District A gal list Him.
Lincoln, 111., March 28. The Repub
lican county convention today naned
delegates to the state convention" and in
structed for McKinley. The action of
this convention turned Senator Cullom's
district against him, and instructed a
majority of the delegates thereof for Mc
Kinley. ' .
A Manderson Ielegation.
Omaha, March 28. The Republicans
of Douglass county held their convention
today. It was harmonious, and tbe
Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report
slate carried was agreed between McKin
ley, and Manderson, Senator Thurston
offered a resolution, which recited the
fact that Charles F. Manderson was
held in high esteem and that be should
be voted for when It could bs done with
out injury to McKinley.
Eastern Oregon Wants Relief Also.
The Columbia Portage and Transpor
tation Co., mention of which ipcorpora
tion was made in The Chronicle re
cently, have issued a circular through
the press of Eastern Oregon, calling for
the co-operation of all business men and
farmers interested in a reduction of
freight rates, by constructing a portage
at Celilo and navigating tbe upper river.
They say : . '
"The value of river competition in se
curing lower freight rates is not mere
guess work. In 1891 the Oregon legisla
ture passed the bill that resulted in the
construction of the State Portage Rail
road at the Cascades; The Dalles busi
ness men at once organized the Regula
tor Company, subscribed the necessary
funds, and put on a line of boats to
Resultant lower freight rates are

The Regulator company not only
proved a success as a rate reducer, but
was and is a Euccess financially.
It is desired that the stock of the in
corporation be taken in as large a de
gree as possible by the farmers and pro
ducers as they are the most interested.
Next to them by the local merchants
who depend largely for prosperity upon
the farmer, and lastly by every one that
will be benefitted. It is assumed that
the first two classes, if they become di
rectly interested by an investment in
the river route will be more likely to
patronize and sustain the same, will be
less likely to sell their stock and so per
haps allow "a sell out" or a fool ar
rangement with competing lines. Sub
stantial assistance from Portland is ex
pected because cheap rates to and from
Portland will be of great benefit to that
Success or failure rests no doubt with
those most interested. The people of
the Inland Empire east of The Dalles it
they take hold of this matter with the
aim that means success it will be sur
prising the amount of outside help that
will be offered. On the other hand, if a
lack of interest is shown, it is unreason
able to suppose that thoseJess interested
will take the lead. It is suggested that
where no board of trade exists that the
people organize locally and co-operate
with us. Each local organization should
canvass their section and report pros
pects of support, amount, etc., with as
little delay as possible to the secretary
of the board of incorporators for we hope
to have the portage in time for this
year's crop. As it is desired that port
age charges-shall be as light as possible
the incorporation papers provide that all
earnings above 6 per cent, per annum on
the paid up stock ehall be used in the way
of reducing portage charges.
The prime movers in the matter are
farmers and local interior merchants
who are not seeking an investment, but
who will subscribe to the stock of this
company because they , expect to get
benefitted by reason of lower freight
The patrons of Mrs. M. E. Briggs mil
linery parlors will be pleased to know
that Mies Bottorff has returned and has
charge of the trimming department.

IN A SPANISH PRISON.
A Young American's Vase Attracting
New Yobk, March 29. A Herald spe
cial from Havana says :
Walter Dygert, an American, 24 years
of age, whose whereabouts since his ar
rest in Cuba a month ago have been
somewhat of . a mystery, and whose case
was the subject of a special resolution
offered in the United States recently, is
in the town jail in Gaines. Dygert says
he was sitting by the road when a col
umn of troops arrested him, and that he
had never associated himself with the
insurgents. After his arrest it was said
he was a well-known insurgent chief
called El Inglesito.
Dygert came from Idaho here on a
prospecting tour. He makes no com
plaint of any bad treatment during his
month in Guines jail, but is anxious to
be released and go home. Consul-Gen
eral Williams will lay a letter from him
before Captain-General Weyler.

Ayer's Sareaparilla eDjoys the extra
ordinary distinction of having been the
only blood purifier allowed on exhibit at
the world's fair, Chicago. Manufact
urers of other sarsaparillas sought by
every means to obtain a showing of their
goods, but they were all turned away
under the application of the rule for
bidding the entry of patent medicines
and nostrums. The decision of the
world's fair authorities in favor of Ayer's
Sarsaparilla was in effect as follows:
"Ayer's Sarsaparilla is ' not a patent
medicine. It does not belong to the
list of nostrums. It is here on its

Blakeley & Houghton desire us to pub
lish the following extract from a letter
of Chas. M. Gutfeld of Reedley, Fresno
county, Calif., as they handle the rem
edy referred to and want their customers
to know what a eplended medicine it is:
"It is with pleasure 1 tell you that by
one day's use of Chamberlain's Cough
remedy I was relieved of a very bad
cold. My head was completely stopped
up and I could not sleep at night. I can
recommend this remedy." A cold nearly
always starts in tbe head and afterwards
extends to the throat and lungs. By
using this "remedy freely as soon as tbe
cold has been contracted it will cure tbe
cold at once and prevent it from extend
ing to tbe Inngs.
It May Do as Much for Yon.
