OBJECTS TO ASSESSMENT.
Northern Pacific 'Making a Fight at
North Yakima, Wash., August 4.
Jay Sedgwick, tax adjuster of tho
Northern Pacific, appeared before
thc board of equalization today and
entered a protest against the valua
tions placed on railway property In
this county. Tho assessment was
raised from JSIG.SMO to $1,218,245, an
Increase of $401,305. Mr. Sedgwick
said the assessment was high higher
than In any county In the stato ex
cept Adams and Lincoln counties.
The assessment of 1903 on right of
way tracl'nge was ?C600 per mile.
Assessor Coonso has raised this to
$9240 per mile.
Mr. Sedgwick said he would be sat
isfied with $7920. tho amount agreed
upon by tho assessors of several
counties of the state. The commis
sioners took the matter under consid
eration, and this afternoon Informed
Mr. Sedgwick that they would not
change the llgures.
RAILROADS ASK REDUCTION.
Irrespresslble Conflict Is On at Col
Colfax, Wash., August 4. The
county commissioners are In session,
and will remain so for three weeks,
sitting ib a board of equalization In
addition to transacting other busi
ness. The present session will decide
whether the assessment of railroad
property made by Assessor Duff will
stand. J. W. Morrow, tax agent for
the O. It. & N., is here and met with
the board this morning. Efforts will
be made to secure a date for a hear
ing by the railroad agents, and there
is no doubt ,that tremendous pressure
will be brought to bear upon the
board to lower the assessment made
this year, which Is far higher than
any previous assessment ever made
in this county
NEW ROUTE FOR
PLAN TO PUT IT ON THE
CANAL. RIGHT OF WAY.
Scheme is to meet the Immediate De
mands of Commerce, But Must Be
Approved by the Government Be
fore it Can Be Put Into Execution
Will Greatly Expedite the Promo
tion of the Canal, and Be a Con
venience to Commerce.
The Dalles, August 4. In a confer
ence between the members of the
open river committee which was
chosen In this city last May, and state
officials yesterday In Portland, the
promoters of the road made the prop
osition to build tbe portage along one
side of the canal. The canal, it is
supposed, is to be built through the
center of the right of way. If this is
so there will be room for the road
along one side.
They also argue that the road is
needed for immediate use, that it
would be of advantage to the govern
ment in building the canal, that it Is
a temporary expedient that can be re
placed by the permanent Institution
of the canal and that It might be of
advautage to hav.e both the canal
and the road. It is also urged that
tho development of tbe Inland Em
pire calls for the building of tho road
and the opening of tho river.
The board admitted ail these
things, is in favor of the construction
of tho road, and will help the project
in any way possible, but it has to
first put the question up to the fed
eral government, and if it is agreeable
there, to refer it to the owners of the
right of way granted to the canal.
The canal right of way was secured
from th.e people along the line of the
proposed works for the supposed con
struction of a canal, and was grant
ed to the use of the government for
that purpose, It is thus in the prov
ince of the government to say wheth
er it will allow the construction of
tho road over the property it has ac
quired. If it consents and tbe pri
mary owners of tbe land object for
any reason, to tbe portage road, there
will bp trouble over Its building.

FRENCH DISRUPTION CASTS
GLOOM OVER VATICAN.
On the First Anniversary of His Elec
tion the Pope Declares He Is Sick
of the Intrigue of the Warring
Forces Congratulations Received
From All European States Except
France Break With Government of
France Considered a Most Grave
Menace to Rome.
Rome. Aug. 4. Thc first anniver
sary of the pope's election was ob
served at the Vatican today. His
holiness celebrated mass at 5:30 after
which he received his Immediate en
tourage in the audience.
He declared himself tired, almost
sick, of the political wrangling with
which he has had to contend since
Congratulatory telegrams were re
ceived by his holiness from tho head
of nearly every European state excopf
from President LouueL of France.
The disruption of tbe relations be
tween France and the Vatican Is ono
of the most serious dilemmas which
now threaten the church.
For hundreds of years France has
been ono of the leading supporters
of the Vatican, but the growing Inde
pendence of that republic has forced
the government to assert more and
more of Its authority and antagonize
more and more of the seeming tyran
ny of the church as exhibited in its
orders effecting France.
The pope now considers tho French
disruption as immediately dangerous
to the authority of the church and
will make a supreme effort to have
the action of the Vatican recalling the
bishops of Dijon and Lavall, sustain
ed by the friends of the church.
The pope's authority Is supreme,
but he desires the sanction of all the
Catholic states. In his action.
