Third Infantry Had an All Day's Fight
and Won Victory, With Two Men
Manila, May 25. The Filipino com
missioners left by a SDecial train today.
They will be escorted to their lines un
der a flag of trace. It is expected that
they will return soon. President Gon
zaga, of the Philippine commission,
previous to his departure, said : "We
greatly appreciate the courtesy shown
us. ' We have spent some time with
your commissioners incidently consider
ing American annexation. Its prin
ciples impress us profoundly.. The plan
of government offered the Philippines
seems in theory to be a good colonial
system, but why should a nation seek to
make a colony of a distant people, who
have been so long fighting against Spain
to secure the same rights your annex
ation gives? You fought the same battle
in America when you fought against
Some Hot Scrimmages.
Washington, May 25. General Otis

Their retreat through the swamp lands
saved them from total destruction. Law

President Has Decided.
Washington, May 25. President Mc
Kinley has positively decided to go as
far west this summer 'as St. Paul, but
whether be will go on to Yellowstone
Park and the coast depends upon such
circumstances that it is now impossible
to make a decision.
He Killed Himself in Presence of Miss
Hilton Coroner's Jury Returns a
Verdict of Suicide.
Oregon City, May 25. The coroner's
jury sat on the remains of Solomon
Beacbert yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock
They returned the following verdict and
recommendation: . "
"We,' the undersigned jury in the
above entitled inquest, find that the de
ceased's name was Solomon Beacbert, of
Aurora, Clackamas County, Or. ; that be
died on the 23d of May, at Oregon City
Or., from effects of a bullet discharged
into the neck and vertebra of the said
deceased by the said deceaeed, on the 22d

Mies Hilton, of Aurora, the young lady
whom Beacbert dragged from her horse,
was too ill to be present, but her father
was there and made a statement to the
ury. From what be said it appears that
Beacbert met the girl in the road about
a mile and a half from her home and
dragged her from her horse for the pur
pose of committing a dastardly crime.
He carried her into the brush and then
changed his mend, and told the girl that
he bad concluded to kill her instead.
She grew hysterical and begged for her
life. He then gave her his watch and
pocketbook, and instructed her to give
them to his mother, and said that he
would kill himself instead. With that
he shot himself before her eyes.
The shooting took place shortly after
6 o'clock, and the girl wandered about
until after 8 before she found her way
out to the road leading to her home.
The horse went home by. himself and a
eearch was at once insnituted for Miss
Hilton. She was nnable to give a clear
account of the affair for some time,
which probably accounts for the delay
in searching for Beachert.

Discovered by a 'Woman.
Another great discovery has been
made, and that too, by a lady in this
country. "Disease fastened its clutches
upon her and for seven years she with
stood its severest teets, but her vital
organs were undertermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months
she coughed incessantly, and could not
sleep. She finally discovered a way to
recovery, by purchasing of us a bottle of
Dr. King's New Discovery for Consump
tion, and was so much relieved on taking
first dose, that she slept all night; and
with two bottles, has been absolutely
cured. Her name iaMes. Luther Lutz."
Thus writes W. C. Hamnick & Co., of

Bears Killing Sheep.
Cobvallis, Or., May 24. For several
weeks bears have been playing havoc
with sheep in the bills, a dozen miles
west of Corvallis. Hunting parties have
scoured the woods and canyons, but all
efforts to rid the country of the maraud'
era have been futile. Last week Caleb
Davis, of Woods creek, set up a bear
trap made of logs, that has already made
short work of two bears. The trap is a
floor of logs ten feet square, on which is
a log pen, twelve inches deep. - A log-
made lid enrmonnta the pen, and is se
curely fastened at one side by powerful
hinges. The lid is very heavy, and is
held up, when the trap is eet, by figure-
four triggers, such as boys use in trap-
ping birds. The long trigger is baited
with meat, and when the latter is seized
the lid falls, and bruin is securely im

Remedy is the beat in the world. A few

New York, May 24. The Evening
World prints an interview with Senator
T. C. Piatt, in which the letter is quoted
as strongly advocating the renomination
of President Mckinley and Vice Presi
dent Hobart. The intei view says :
"Senator Piatt said that the criticism
which has been flung at McKinley can
not alter the facts, and that the presi
dent has conducted in a magnificent
style the shortest and most decisive war
of modern times, and 'simply astonished'
the world by the way in which he did it.
"This general satisfaction," continued
Senator Piatt, "has had undoubted de
monstration by tbe president's reception
wherever be has been. Without a
shadow or doubt he will be nominated
and elected. ' The Republican party is
stronger than it ever was. Vice Presi
dent Hobart, will be elected with Mc
Kinley. He is my choice for vice presi
dent. As for the democratic party, it
has only one issue silver and that has
been repudiated by the entire country.
"There is certainly no land ever held
by the United States must ever be relinquished."
He spoke of the peace conference at
The Hague as "vlssionary, beautiful,
but impracticable." "Universal peace"
he said, "is not for this age."
