them off. The good-byes being said,
the two ladies were going ashore in the
unch when a junk, which was sailing
into the harbor, running swiftly before

"I have witnessed with deepest sorrow
the hostilities .between the United

Intimating That Spain's Surrender is
Not Complete The Semt-Official
Madrid, Aug. 12. The government is
propogating the idea that Spain's sur
render is not so complete as indicated
by the bald terms of the protocol. As
the first step in this direction, a semi
official note has been issued, which is as
"The government ia of the opinion
that the most critical period of peace
negotiations has now arrived, as it de
pends upon the arrangement of details
as to whether peace will be more or less
advantageous. Spain wishes to preserve
her sovereignty over the whole of the
Philippines, to which she proposes to
accord all political and administrative
reforms consistent with the maintenance
of her sovereignty. In regard to the
evacuation of Cuba and Porto Rico, it
will be asked that the army be allowed
to depart honorably and that assur
ances be given guaranteeing that the
Spanish and foreign interests will not
suffer. The army which has not been
conquered will return to Spain with its
guns, arms and munitions. In regard
to the Cuban debt, as the United States
refuses to assume it, Spain will endeav
or to arrange with the Cuban treasury
to pay it when the island is able. The
question of a treaty of commerce will be
submitted to a commission under the
presidency of Senor Castillo."
He Says Little, But Has No Fears as to
His Reception in Spain Feels
that He Das Done His Duty.
Washington, Aug. 12. Admiral Cer
vera and a number of his officers, who
are now prisoners at the naval academy
at Anapolis, were interviewed at their
station in that place for the first time
since their arrival. Admiral Cervera
was reserved in his comment, but hie
officers were more outspoken, All were
very grateful for the treatment which;
they had received.
Admiral Cervera heard for the first
time apparently of the alleged tele
grams which Captain-General Blanco
is said to have sent to -Madrid, before
and after the defeat of the fleet, asking
for Cervera'a removal and pronouncing
"I have known nothing of it," he de
clared. "If Blanco occupies his time in
traducing me, I will pay no attention to
him. I will have nothing to do with
that kind of a man."
"Why do you not justify yourself now
before the people of this country and
Spain?" was a9ked. "It might effect
your reception on your return."
"I have no fear as to my reception in
Spain," replied the admiral. "After all
this is over there will be a council, which
will clear up every thing. I did my du
ty up to the last moment, and have no
fears as to what the verdict of the peo
ple will be.

will run over the Oregon company's line
from this city to Wallula, and then over

to St. Paul and other Eastern termini,
and 141 hours from Portland to Chicago.

the route last year, and which proved

The delinqent taxes of Wasco counly,
as shown on the rolls now in the bands
of the sheriff are $60,000. an amount al
most equal to the indebtedness of the
county. Every citizen will doubtless
admit that this state of affairs should
not exist, and that all taxes should be
collected. On account of hard times
in the past the county court Las shown
leniency to taxpayers, but that leniency
has reached the limit, and the court
cannot wait longer on delinquents to
make settlements. For this reason a
warrant has been attached to each de
linquent roll commanding the Bheriff to
collect all taxes by seizure and sale of
property. With a bountiful crop now
in sight, "there can no longer be any rea
sonable excuse for the non-payment of
taxes. The sheriff is bound by oath to
comply with the terms of the warrants
attached to the tax rolls for the collec
tion thereof, and has no option in the
matter. Delinquent taxpayers can save
the cost of seizure an 1 sale of property
by settling their taxes at once.

Deafness Cannot be. Cared
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that ia by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect bearing, and when it la en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cass out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous sur
faces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deaf ness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars ; free.
