FAIRBANKS AT CEREMONY.
Magnificent Building Erected by Wash
' ington Formally Opened.
Portland, June 3. The bonds of
friendship existing "between the two
greatest states in the Northwest were
even more firmly cemented yesterday
at the Lewis and - Clark exposition,
when the - magnificent Washington
State buiding was formally dedicated
with ceremonies second . only : to the
opening day . exercises of Thursday.
The spirit of friendliness which binda
the two states together in the great
task of developing and upbuilding the
Northwest was exemplified by the elo
quent addresses of the speakers who rep
resented both the state of Washington
and the state of Oregon, 'Vice President
Fairbanks, the personal representative
of the president, honored the Washing
ton delegation by his presence and de
livered a short but very pointed and
The condition of the weather was
perfect before and during the . cere
monies, but immediately after the close
of the exercises dark and heavy clouds
appeared on the horizon, giving the
impression that the unfavorable weath
er . had been delayed because of the
respect the elements held for the great
state of Washington. Long before the
commencement of the exercises, which
were held at 11 o'clock, Washington
ians, Oregon ians and visitors from all
parts of. the United States' began to
assemble in anticipation of the dedi
cation. By the time the hour arrived
for the opening of the ceremonies the
exposition grounds east of the , Wash
ington building were crowded with
people. : ".
Hundreds of them were from Wash
ington, and it is said that there was
not a city in the state, no matter how
it ranked in importance with its sister
cities, that was not represented at the
dedication. There were visitors from
even the remotest portions of Washing
ton,' who traveled many miles on
horseback to reach a railroad which
would take them to Portland. The
delegations from Spokane, Seattle, Ta
coma and Walla Walla were particu
larly large, the most prominent public
men being in attendance.
QUOTES HISTORIC INCIDENT
Russia Cries for Punishment of Ne
bogatoff for Surrendering.
St. Petersburg, June 3 Feeling in
the admiralty against Rear Admiral
Nebogatoff continues to run high, the
majority of the naval authorities being
deaf to " the appeals cf the few who
insist that the admiral's action in stir
rendering his warships should not be
condemned until the circumstances
become fully known. .The majority say
they could forgive anything but surren
der and point to the precedent in the
case of the Russian, ship Raphael,
which, in 1829, during the Russo-
Turkish war, struck its colors to three
Turkish ships which surrounded it.
Nicholas I meted out a terrible punish
ment to the officers and crew of the
Raphael, ordering that all of them
should be shot after their exchange and
directing that, if the ship should ever
be recaptured, its infamous history
snouid be blotted out by the total de
struction of the vessel. The Raphael,
strange to say, was recaptured 34 years
later at Sinope during the Crimean
war, . a son of the captain who sur
rendered her taking part in the battle,
and to this son fell the task of execut
ing the dead emperor's 'orders to de
stroy her.,.. Many naval authorities
claim, that the emperor should reserve
the same fate for Admiral Nebogatoff.

Sailors Mutiny in Battle.
London, June 3. The St-Petei-shum-
correspondent of the Times wires that
he had obtained from high' authority a
report mat Admiral mebogatort's sailors
mutinied in the battle and threw the
admirafand manv of their officers over

MEANS WAR TO BITTER END
Ukase, Instigated by Aged Procura
tor, May Be the Precursor of
a National Assembly.
St. Petersburg, June 6.. Emperor
Nicholas' ukase virtually creating Gov
ernor General Trepoff dictator has giv
en rice to J a mighty sensation. It is
the imperial recognition of the crisis
in the internal affairs of Russia and
instinctively recalls the step taken by
the emperor's grandfather, Alexander
II, immediately after the. attempt to
blow up the winter palace in 1880,
when he appointed a commission of
public safety headed by General Loris
"Reaction and suppression" doubt
less will be the quick interpretation
put upon- the emperor's act as soon as
it becomes known to the Liberals. Bur
ied in the columns of the Official Mes-
senger and coming almost without
warning, the ukase is hot yet generally
known, but to the initiated the future
of Constantino Petrovitch Pobiedonost
oseff, chief procurator of the holy syn
oa, . looms large. Behind the scenes
the old man remains as stern and as
uncompromising as ever. He left what
many believed to be his dying bed last
Thursday and went to Tsarskoe-Selo,
where he spent almost the entire day
with his majesty.
The decision to place in the hands of
the strongest executive in . Russia,
which Trepofl is universally recognized
as being, the power to crush with an
iron grasp the political agitation which
has brought Russia almost to the brink
of revolution, according" to public be
lief, is the fruit of Pobiedonostseff's
visit, for, so far as can be learned, not
a single one of the emperor's ministers
Iwas in the secret. The ukase came
like a bolt from a clear sky.

June 5. Rear Admiral En
quist, who was commander of the
heavy cruiser squadron of the Russian
fleet, arrived in the bay at 9 o'clock
this morning on board his flagship, the
protected cruiser Aurora, accompanied
by the protected cruisers Oleg and
Jemtchug. All the vessels were more
or less damaged and there were many
wounded men on board.-
In an interview Rear Admiral En
quist's executive officer said:
"When the battle began the admiral
was aboard the Cruiser Oleg, which was
nit a number of times by the laree shot,
. "The admiral transferred his flag
to the Aurora, which then drew the
combined fire of many torpedo boat
destroyers at close range and the attack
of submarines. . We were overwhelmed
by the latter. A. mist arising, we
made a dash for the open sea and were
followed by the Oleg'and Jemtchug."

assistant traffic director of the Harri

Freight Agent R. B. Miller, of the O.
R. & N. ; General Passenger Agent W.
E. Coman, of the Southern Pacific, and
H. E. Lounsbury, traveling freieht
-and passenger agent of the latter com
pany, were here last week to make in
quiries into the practicability of the
establishment ot a Unen mill here,
and held a conference with Eugene
Bosse, the flax expert, and Mrs. W. P.
Lord, a flax enthusiast, in the reception
room of the Willamette hotel. As a
result of the conference Mr jStohr states
that he is convinced that a quality of
fibre that cannot be excelled any place
else in the; world can be grown in this
valley, and that everything from the
coarsest of twines and cordages, crash,
etc., to the very finesTlinens and laces
can be manufactured from it. '
He is also assured by Mr. Bosse that
with the aid of a new flax pulling ma
chine which is now in course, of perfec
tion and completion the raw material
can be produced quite as cheap, if not
cheaper, than m the foreign countries.
and that the finished product could be
placed upon the market at such- prices
that the foreign or eastern mills could
not compete with.
Mr. Stohr collected a great amount
of reliable data concerning the industry
while here, and will carry it back to
Chicago with him to make his report.
He would not state what particular
action the Harnman system proposed
to take toward promoting the develop
ment of the industry, but he says if
the project looks feasible to the man
agement it will exert its influence
toward interesting "Eastern capital to
invest in the enterprise.
WANT SALARIES BY WARRANT
State Employes Dislike Certificates of
- .-.y Allowance
Salem At a meeting held last week
the state employes decided to levy an
assessment upon themselves to. raise a
fond to defray the expense of hiring an
attorney to test the question whether it
is the duty of the secretary of state to
issue salary warrants -on the first ot
each month. The assessment levied
was at the rate of 2 per cent on the
monthly salary. . '
John A. Carson was employed to con
duct the mandamus proceedings, which
will probably be commenced this week,
after the monthly payroll has been pre
sented to the secretary of state and he
has refused to issue a warrant.
Secretary of State Dunbar takes the
position that it is his duty to proceed
under the general law and issue certifi
cates of allowance for the reason that
no appropriation is available. .
The employes contend that under the
Kay law, passed by the last legislature,
it is the duty of the secretary of state
to issue warrants for salary claims,
even though- there be no appropriation
available. The difference to the em
ployes is that if they receive certificates
of allowance they must discount them
at 10 per cent. A warrant would -be
worth its face value. ;
Sumpter Valley Extension to Begin
Sumpter A working crew has gone
out over the Sumpter Valley railway
bound for the front. ' Work has been
started on the extension from Tipton,

speed until Austin ' station has been
reached. It is reported that this is
the objective point of the road this
season, and that the company will be
sati&fied with this much of an ' exten
sion for the present. The large force
of men being put to work leads to the
impression that if it is possible the
road will be extended further.

BIG STRIKE IN OPP MINE.
Sacks of Ore are Taken Out Wortr
$20,000 a Ton.
Medford When the first big strike
was made in the Opp mine, two weeks
ago, many people expressed opinions .
that it was a bunch and that the vein
would pinch out, as so many other veins
have done in Southern Oregon. Events,
have proved, however, that if it 'is a
bunch it is the biggest, richest and
most extensive ever found on the Pacific. -coast.
Last week a second strike
somewhat smaller than the first one,,
was made, and a body of ore richer andt
larger than both others has just been
uncovered, - proving conclusively that ,
the Opp mine is one of the most prom
ising quartz gold mines ever discovered
on the coast.
Besides this extremely rich ore, they -are
taking out large quantiti 38 of high
grade free milling ore, and the width
and depth of the vein increases. The
first strike amounted to 20 sacks of ore
that was almost pure gold; the second -one
consisted of five sacks of an esti
mated value of $1,500; the third one,
the ore of which is considered richer -than
either of the other two, consisted
of 40 sacks, already taken out, and
there remains an unknown quantity of
ore still in sight. This . would make
the three strikes aggregate a' value of
' Hon. H. E. Ankeny has visited the
mine and while there offered $1,200 for
three pieces of ore weighing altogether
110 ounces. ; The offer was refused..
At this price the ore would be wortb
$133 a pound, or $236,000 per ton.
