for. The bill carries approximately
$100,070,000. -
Saturday, Jan. 28.
Eulogies upon the departure of the

ices the senate adjourned out of respect
to the dead senator s memory.
In a Eession of less than' two hours
today the house passed 373 pension

To Check Injunction Evil.
Washington, Jan. 27. An import
ant measure, which is the result of
conferences held during the past two
months among President .Roosevelt, At
torney General Moody, Commissioner
of Corporations Garfield and representa
tives of labor organizations and cor
porate interests, has been introduced
in the house of representatives. It
provides that in labor disputes an in
junction shall not be issued until an
opportunity shall have been afforded
the adverse party to the proceedings to
be heard by the court. .
' Ladrones ni the province

of Cavite
Tokio, Jan. 31. The troops which
twice captured Port Arthur, once from
the Chinese and then again from the
Russians, have administered a defeat to
General Kuropatkin' s army from which
it cannot possibly recover during the
winter; Field Marshal Oyama has sent
a dispatch to the imperial headquar
ters indicating that the conquerors of
Port Arthur were sent by him to meet
the enemy in the bloody battle just de
cided, owing to their long practice un
der arms and their tried ability to
withstand the hardships of the awful
Manchurian winter. The result of
the struggle so far has proved thewis
dom of his course.
Every dispatch received from the
front tells of winter horrors such as no
other battling army ever had to contend
with. Many inches of snow cover the
country as far as the eye can see. The
ridges are snow-capped. Avalanche
upon avalanche has tumbled into the
trenchs, inflicting untold suffering upon
the soldiers therein.
Field Marshal Oyama's dispatches
have convinced the military authori
ties here that he was by no means anx
ious to engage in the battle, and, in
fact, permitted the Russians to take
several positions in his vicinity to save
the troops from the unspeakable strain
of fighting in the storm. But the Rus-
sian advance was made withh such en
ergy and determination by large bodies
of troops occupying miles of ground
that Oyama finally decided to accept
the challenge.
A large portion of General Nogi's
army, both his regulars and his re
serves, were placed in the vanguard
Among them were thousands of veterans
of the Chino-Japanese war, who, hav
ing done service in Manchuria in the
winter, were able to make progress and
use their arms where less seasoned
troops would have been paralzyed
The victory gained over the Russian
right army is considered here even a
greater fea"t than was the capture of
Port Arthur, for, while the battle
raged, there were no trenches to seek
protection in and ,every shot of the
enemy was made more deadly by the
indescribable cold. For this reason"
the news from the front that Field Mar
shal Oyama is now following up his
advantage with relentless energy has
been received With amazement.
Will Probably Be Head of New Ap
propriations Committee.
Washington, Jan. 81. Never before
in all the time he has been chairman
of the committee on rivers and harbors
has Representative Burton held out so
strongly against unworthy projects for
waterway improvements as he has dune
this session. Burton has. from the
first, fought projects which had no
merit, but he has heretofore been com
pelled to consent to the incorporation
in river and harbor bills of many items
which he did not personally approve.
This year, however, he has been
firmer, and has carried his point. He
has succeeded in keeping out of the
river and harbor bill every item that
was of a '-'log rolling" nature. He con
sented to no appropriations except for
projects that have been indorsed by the
war department.
There appears to be method in Mr.
Burton's course. When the next con
gress organizes, Speaker Cannon will
have to select a chairman for the com
mittee on appropriations. This chair
man ought to be a man of discrimina
tion, a man of force and a man of high
est integrity. He must be the "watch
dog of the treasury." He must be a
man who can dominate his committee
and hold out against all appropriations
which are not necessary. He must be
able to withstand the personal appeals
of members.
There is not a single member of that
committee today competent to become
its chairman. And from the speaker's
viewpoint, there is not a member in
the house better equipped for that
place than Mr. Burton. Perhaps the
chairman of the river and harbor com
mittee had the future in view when he
took the radical course he did in dic
tating the terms of the present river
and harbor bill.
Battle Rages in Warsaw Streets with
No Respect to Age or Sex. .
Warsaw, Jan. 31. Another day and
half a night of horrors have passed.
As this dispatch is sent, the city is
ruled by savage mobs and more savage
soldiers. Both are intent upon killing.
No official statements are obtainable at
this hour, but when the cost in human
lives comes to be counted there will be
found dead by the hundreds men,
women and children.
Everybody young and old, men,
women and children was attacked by
the Boldiers and ruthlessly shot down.
One soldier aimed a sabre blow at a
woman. In self defense she drew a re
volver and fired a shot, which went
wild. A second later a volley was di-
rected at her, and she fell dead, riddled
by a score of bullets. This is but one
of a hundred instances.
For the moat part the soldiers who
rode and tramped through the streets
during the late afternoon of Monday
were drunk, They seemed to take a
particular delight in attacking harmless
persons,' They killed tor tne mere
sake of killing.
Senators Pay Little Attention to In
terests of Big Territory.
" Washington, Jan. 31. The deter
mination of the senate to dispose of
the bwayne impeachment case means,
according to senate leaders, that most
of the time between now and March
4 will be taken up in court duty, to
the exclusion of legislative matters,
save only the necessary supply bills.
All legislation which encounters objec
tion will have to go over.
This means not only the defeat of the
ship subsidy, interstate commerce and
statehood bills, but the defeat of ail
legislation relating to Alaska. It had
been hoped that several Alaskan meas
ures might be passed before adjourn
ment, but that hope has been dispelled
Plans had already been laid for bring
ing forward the Alaska delegate bill,
passed by the house last session. But
Alaska will get no delegate by the grace
of the 58th congress. Neither will
Alaska get much else, save what is pro
vided in the regular appropriation bills.
Alaska is weak in tne senate tor two
reasons: All Alaskan legislation en
counters-opposition from a few men,
but what is more significant, few sen
ators have any real interest in the great
district, and not more than half a dozen
men make any effort whatever to push
through legislation which Alaska seeks
There is more opposition to the dele
gate bill than to any other Alaska bill
now pending, and this opposition will
be able to put a quietus on the Cush-
man bill, in the present session.
Will Now Build.
Sacramento, Jan. 27. The Lewis
and Clark appropriation bill, which
passed the senate on Monday by a
unanimous vote, today passed tne
assembly. It will be signed by the gov
ernor as soon as it can be engrossed.
The money appropriated by this bill,
with the appropriation of two years ago,
$90,000 in all, will be immediately
available, under the direction of Gov
ernor Pardee, who is authorized to act
in his own discretion.
Illinois Will Exhibit.
Springfield, 111., Jan. 27. With the
sanction and official approval of gov
ernor Deneen, a bilLwill be introduced
in both branches of the general assem
bly next Monday providing tor an, ap
propriation of $35,000 for an Illinois
building at the Lewis and Clark cen
tennial exposition which will open next
June at Portland, Oregon. Along with
the bill will be presented a special mes
sage from Govenor Deneen.
All Agree with Hay.
Berlin, Jan. 31. The Russian gov
ernment's reply to China's declaration
that she has not infringed neutrality,
nor permitted Japan to do so, is a reas-
sertion that she has done so. The Rus
sian note is such, that it is inferred
that Russia is not likely to carry the
discussion much further. It is learned
here that Russia found that all the
powers, particularly Germany, held
views identical with those of the
united states on limiting tne zone
of war and the keeping China out . of

Run Down by Cavalry.
.'London, Jan. 31. The foreign office
has received a telegram from Consul
Gneral Murray, at Warsaw, reporting
that himself and V ice Consul Mucu-
kain were charged by Russianl cavalry
men engaged in clearing the streets of
Warsaw. It appears that Mr. Murray
is partially deaf, and when he endeav
ored to make known his personality, it
was without avail. Ambassador Hard
inge has been ordered to make urgent
protest at St. Petersburg.
Burning the Factories.
London, Jan. 27. A dispatch from
St. Petersburg late tonight to a news
agency here reports that Pahl's factory
and a large cotton mill have been set on
fire and are burning fiercly.
Beef 'Trust a Monopoly.
Washington, Jan. 31. The supreme
court of the United States today decid
ed the, United States vs. Swift & Co,
knownas the beef trust case, charging
conspiracy among the packers to fix
prices on fresh meaj3 and like products
The opinion was handed down by
Justice Holmes and affirmed the de
cision of the court below, which

propriation bill as reported to the house

Salem, Jan. 24. Of the 24 bills
passed by the hosue today only one en
countered opposition that for the cre
ation of a state library commission.

receive $1,200 a year and traveling ex
penses. The bill creating the Eighth
(Baker county) and Tenth (Union and
Wallowa) judicial districts were amonz
those passed.
The senate held only a very short
session today, adjourning at 11 :15 until
tomorrow at 10. Besides disposing of
all the senate business on hand, the
senate received a few house bills and
referred from that branch to the vari
ous committees. The senators spent
the afternoon on committee work.
Half a dozen bills have been intro
duced at this session for the creation of
a mining bureau, but it is doubtful
whether any of them will become laws.
The creation of a Lewis and Clark
county is a new proposal before the
legislature. The new county is to be
the northern half of Grant, except a
narrow strip along the eastern side,
and make Long Creek the county seat.
The intention is to eventually take, in
a strip of taker also.

societies rose to their feet and cheered
a red flag at a mass meeting held here

the purpose of raising a fund for the

The czar and aristocratic class of Rus
sia were condemned in the strongest
terms at command. One speaker com
pared the czar to ex-Governor Peabody,
of Colorado. Resolutions were passed
expressing smypathy with the op
pressed and denouncing the. czar. .
Bombs in Barracks.
Vienna, Jan. 31. A telegram from
Czentschow, Poland, reports that a
bomb was thrown, in the cavalry bar
racks there today and that many sol
diers were wounded. The act is sup
posed to have been in revenge for bru
tality in dispersing a workman's meet
ing. Other dynamite outrages are re
ported to have occurred in the neigh
borhood of Lodz. A gendarme is re
ported to have been killed and a num
ber wounded. Ky.-1, , , ;f

sition has been made to the citizens by

could get a 100-foot right of way, give
$35,000 subsidy and a suitable site for

and Clark fair to a central organization
composed of seven members, one to be
named by each of the boards of trade of

Clackamas county fishermen in this
city, a resolution addressed to the legis
lature was adopted asking that the state
fishing laws be so amended as to pro
vide for a closed season of five months
in the year, June 1 to November 1 .
This arrangement will do away with
the closed season extending from March
1 to April 15, and is in harmony with
the position that has been taken by
the Multnomah and Clackamas county
delegations at Salem.
Arrests by the Hundred.
London, Jan. 31. A dispatch to the
Daily Graphic" from Sevastopol says:

Will Abandon Contests.
'- Ajax Few of the score-odd contests
instituted against Gilliam county set
tlers in the vicinity at the instance of
William Twilley, of Devil's butte, will
probably be carried to trial, most of
the contestors having realized that sen
timent in this community and in the,
county generally is against them. In
the past six weeks 22 homesteads in the
Ajax section have . been , contested.
Three or four were heard at The Dalles
and the rest were set for hearing before
the Gilliam county clerk at Condon.
Feeling isbitter against Twilley.

Little Wheat is Left Over.
Pendleton E. W. McComis, agent
for the Puget Sound Warehouse com
