San Francisco, Sept. C. A special
from Seattle say3 :
News of the disaster to the Artie whal
ing fleet came ia the following letter
from Capt. J. C. Downing, of the steam
er Wolcott, to Austin Claiborne, the
local agent of the Pacific Steam Whaling
Juneau, Aug. 20. I arrived from
the westward this evening. The
latest from the Arctic is that all
the vessels that were caught in the
ice are lost. Mason, captain of the
Jeannie, is crazy. I obtained the
above information from Capt. Ned
Lennen, the pilot of the gunboat
J. C. DOWNING.
This letter came via the steamer Al-Ki
which arrived here from Juneau this
Mr. Claiborne believes that only the
whaling vessels originally caught in the
ice above Point Barrow were destroyed.
Rev. Sheldon Jackson, who returned
on the Roanoake, reported that the Bel
videre got out end reached Port Clar
ence, where she coaled August 4th, from
the bark J. D. Peters. She then re
turned to Point Barrow. The Belvi-
dere's officers also told Mr. Jackson that
the Rosario had been crushed in the ice,
and that the Wanderer had extricated
herself and moved on to the vicinity of
As the Orca and Jessie H. Freeman
were destroyed last fall, natives having
set fire to and burned the latter, it
would appear that the only vessel re
maining at the mercy of the ice floes and
jama were the Jeannie, the Newport
and the Fearless. But beside the eight
vessels named there was the Belana, the
Grampus, Beloga, Norwhal and Mary D.
Hume remaining in that part of the
Captain Edwin Good all, of San Fran
cisco, who came down on the Al-Ki,
"Captain Downing told me that the
fleet was destroyed in the ice break-up.
He got his information from Pilot Len
nen, of the United States gunboat
Wheeling. Lennen was told of this dis
aster at Kootzehue sound. Downing
heard of no deaths and it is supposed
that none occurred.
"Captain Downing further stated that
when the Thrasher left Alaska, August
12th, Captain Snell, master of the ves
sel, was sick and that there were many
fishermen in Chiginick, waiting for the
return of the bark J. D. Peters, eo as to
get out of the country. I also learned
that the whalers John and Winthrop
left Alaska early in August with 300 bar
rels of whale oil and 2000 pounds of

EXTRA SESSION OF
Call Will be Embodied in a Proclama
tion to be Issued by Governor
Salem, Or., Sept. 6. An extra session
of the Oregon legislature will be called
to convene at the capitol at Salem,
September 26. The call will be em
bodied in a proclamation to be issued
by Governor Lord at a late hour this
afternoon. A statement to this effect
was given out by the governor at this
office this morning.
This call has for some time been an
ticipated by reason of the large volume
of unfinished business left over from
the session of 181)6. Were this business
to be added to the new, sure to epring
up during the forthcoming session, it is
thought the constutional 40 days would
be insufficient time to deal with it in
a satifactory manner. Hence the gov
ernor's call for extra session.
Relates Generally to Trade Interests
in China and Africa.
London, Sept. 6. The Pall Mail Ga
zette says it has complete confirmation
of the existence of an Angelo German
agreement, which is mainly commercial,
but, the paper adds, which provides a
basis for the adjustment of all differences
regarding territorial questions in all
parts of the world.
The Pall Mall Gazette publishes
alleged details of the agreement, but
they were not cabled to the Associated
Press, as the officials of the foreign
office said they were far beyond the
truth. The foreign officials added that
the agreement is yet incomplete. It
relates generally to Anglo-German in
terests in China, Africa and elsewhere,
but it is not precise in its stipulations.

Gunboat Bennington Will Make the
Survey for tbe Coaling Station at
San Francisco, Sept. 6. The United

The trouble began with the attempt of
the British military authorities to install
christian officials. They had appointed
a council of internal control to collect
the tithe revenues, and a detachment of
soldiers was etationed outside the office,
as a precaution.
A crowd of unarmed Mussulmans at

office. The British -soldiers fired and
wounded several. The MnBsnlmanB ran
for their arms, and, returning, attacked
the eoldiers. Other Mussulmans spread
rapidly through tbe christian quarter,
shooting into windows and setting many
houses and shops on fire.
It is reported thatthe British consul
has been killed. The Turkish governor
has offered to help the British.

Washington, Sept. 6. President Mc
Kinley and as many members of his
cabinet as can do eo, will attend some
portion of the peace jubilee, which be
gins at tbe Omaha exposition October
10th. The president so informed a dele
gation of Nebraskans who called at the

Notice to Delinquent Taxpayers.
The delinqent taxes of Wasco county,
as shown on th6 rolls now in the hands
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 sheriff to
collect all taxes by seizure and sale of
property. With a bountiful cfop 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 and sale of property
by settling their taxes at once.
