mands an examination by medical experts

re-tated peusion recently ' granted him.
The letter is quite lengthy. In the course

ply for it under the -laws.

THERE WAS AN UNDERSTANDING.
Ottawa, Aug. 24- A meeting of the
cabinet has been called lor the 15th of
September, and a;l members have been
urged to be on hand at that lime. It is
learned on reliable authority that in ac
cordance with an understanding informal
ly arrived at between the authorities at
Loudon and at Washington, of which the
Dominion government hitherto appears
to have been unaware the United States
cruisers Wire only to go through the
formula or seizing Cauaoian vessels
caught in Bi hi ing sea in contravention
the proscribed regulations ot the

rjing the seizure into actural effect, and

be seized or confiscated. A prominei.t
official in reteiring to this new phase

that bud been thrown upon it by recent
corrtsi.omlence from the British govern
ment, said that while the Loitcd btutes
government would by this course still

ve right of the seal fisheries of Behring
sea they would Lot make themselves"
liable lor nearly so large an amount of
omages it these coure were tollowtd as
they went indiscriminately to work

be decided that the claim they had set is
FIRE IN A COLLIERY.
Victoria, B. C, Aug. 24. A Nanai
mo special says: "This afternoon about
4:30 o'clock fire was discovered at the
foot of No. 1 shaft of the East Welling
ton colliery. The men below ground
were immediately notified of the pending
danger and brought to the surface np the
No. 2 shaft. They were enabled to use
this means of escape as the underground
workings of the two shafts connect. Most
foitunately the men were all saved with
out accident. At one time it was feared
all the mules underground would be suf
focated, but have since been saved. -
Miles City, Mont., Aug. 24. Word
has been received here from William
Cathay, a cowboy, that the deputy sheriff

A RAILROAD TO LINKYILLE.
Port Townsend, Ang. 24. A railroad
is to be built from a point near Ashland,
on the Southern Pacific railroad, to Link
ville. Or. Major Brooks, of this place,
has gien one-halt of his hot spring ranch
at Linkville to secure the construction of
THE CONGO RAILROAD.
New York, Aug. 24 It is said that
O. P. Huntington's trip to Europe is for
the purpose of consulting with the king
of Belgium relative to the Congo railroad
enterprise. It is estimated that the road
will cost trom $40,000,000 to $j0,000,0U0
to build and equip, ot which $0,400,000
has been subscribed under the auspices
of a Belgium stock company, which is
the great trading concern of the Congo
free state. It is the connection ot this
Lower Congo region with the Upper Con
go country for which a railroad is sought.
The Upper Congo country has a large
population, and a vast trado can be
opened up there, of which the Belgians
wish to reap the benefit.
THE GERMAN SITUATION.
Berlin, Aug. 24. Compared with the
visit of the late Emperor William to Al
sace Lorraine, in 1870, the present em
peror's visit was a phenominal success,
and indicates remarkable progress made
in Germanizing the provinces during the
Copenhagen telegrams announce that
the czar and czariua boarded the imper
ial yactb at Peterhof yesterday and were
expected in Copenhagen Tuesday, but at
the momeut the sailing was postponed.
The belief now is that the czar will dis
embark at Stettm,cn route to Copenhagen,
and have a brief, quiet meeting with the
emperor at Hounsdam.
An inspired article in the Cologne
Qasette on the result of the emperors
visit to Osborne says the relations be
tween England and Germany are more
friendly. Owing, however, to the oppos
tion of a radical parliament the English
government is compelled to proceed
cautiously toward disapproaebmeut with
Germany. The Gazette adds: "Whether
the czar comes or not there is small hope
that the relations between Russia and
Germany will improve."
DEATH OF A PHILANTHROPIST.
St. Louis, Aug. 25. Henry Sbaw, the
venerable philanthropist, died this morn

PENSION OFFICE RULIXG.
Washington, Ang. 20. One of the
most important rulings made by the com
missioner of pensions in laic years, in
that it affects the masses of tiie soldiers
of the conntry, is that issued to-day by
Commissioner Tanner to the chiefs of
divisions in the pension bureau. What
it does is to extend the limitations in
regard to competent witnesses to such an
extent that this great and constantly
growing bar to the granting of pensions
Ts almost obliterated. As the years roll
on, and so many of the soldiers of the
late war have died, it becomes difficult
for applicants for pensions to furnish
proof in regard to origin ot disability.
Under the rules of the pension office; in
the past the evidence of one commission
ed officer or one orderly sergeant was re
quired. In the event of inability to
famish this evidence the testimony of
two private soldiers was required. The
order of the commissioner to day extends
this latter stipulation to "the claimant
and one private soldier," or, in tlia-ords
of the commissioner, "the origin shall be
held to be proven on the evidence of the
claimant and one private, provided
always, that said claimant and said privat
be men of reputable character,
THROUGH THE WHIRLPOOL RAPIDS.
Niagara Falls, N. Y., Aug. 25 Car
lisle I). Graham made a successful trip
througn Whirlpool rapids this afternoon
in a -barrel-shaped boat.
At first the boat traveled easily, but
soon was in the grasp of a more raiii
current, that hastened its journey. It
rode beautifully on the trip through "the
npid$, and frequently disappeared from
sight, and at one time it was out of sight
so long that muny believed it to be lost
The course it took was down the center
of the river.
At 5 o'clock it entered the whirlpool.
and the thousands of people who had
gathered there to witness Graham's
friends recover the barrel were doomed
to be disappointed, for, instead of lu in
caught in the main current and carried
across the pool, as is usually the case, it
hugged the American side and was car
lied into the quiet water in front of the
outlet, and was forced slowly over nearly
to the Canadian side. For a minute it
was a question whether it was to go
around the pool or down the river, but
the outward bound current was too
strong, and at 4:54 P. M. Graham passed
out of the pool and down through the
fearful water opposite Foster's Flats,
which is the spot most feared by all the
All ot these dangers Graham to day
passed in safety, and at 5;05 P. J'.

Cuautaqua, Aug. 25. Yesterday was

papers have been howling considerable
because the commissioner has made a lot
of cases special. They said there were
10,000 special cases, but they found 900.
wish I had toe power, I would settle
these cases within forty-eight hours.
here are 400,000 others waiting. Tbey
are within the clearest defined limits of
law and the commissioner must regard
his oath as sacred as the prayer bis
mother taught hiin. On the other hand.
I will say that the commissioner will sit
up nights, as be has done for six months,
to do justice to veterans,"
A TRAIN ROBBER CAUGnT.
Lancaster, Pa., Aug. 25. Charles
D. Chambers just released from an East

evening, and when the Pacific Express on
the Panama railroad polled out of the
station at 1 :25 this morning, boarded the
Pullman car and endavoced to rob the
passengers. Charley Murk, the porter,
of Jersey City, struggled with him and
was shot twice. Chambers sats he was
stealing a ride and the porter began fir

went off. The porter says Chambers was

a revolver and commenced firing,

On Sunday last Alma, daughter of A. C.
Eugdahl, aged 16 years, was drowned in the
Nateheez. Mr. Eugdahl lives about eigh
teen miles up the valley and the reports re

that she would get the snpper. The dishes
washed Miss Engdahl left the house and
walked toward the river. Supper time ar
rived and the girl not returning the family

ward the river. The river reached the

down stream the body of the girt was found
lodged on a ritlle. Life was extinct. The

All efforts so far to find George Nuttine,

may conclude w ith a degree of certainty
that he waj murdered, his body deeply bur

able fish wheels on the Columbia is said to
be down at the Cascades in tho Columbia
about half way between the Upper and
Lower Cascades. There is a pit just at ihe
side of the wheel to catch and hold the fish
when they are dumped out of tho wheel.
The pit is about 12 feet square by 20 feet
deep, and Mr. L. W. Curtis informs ns that
he has seen that pit half full of writhing,
squirming salmon. Several tons are fre
quently caught there in one day.
A new swindle is reported. A timid
looking couple rides up to a farm-house and
desire to be married amidst its classic sur
roundings. They would pay liberally for
the privilege. A third party who accom
panies the couple performs the ceremony.
The ricn and romantic bridegroom hands
the farmer $10 and asks him to sign the
marriage "certificate" as a witness. In
time the farmer finds he has signed a note
for $400. The note is attached to the cer
tificate and turns up in the hands of an
innocent purchaser. The granger must pay
it. Salem Journal: A recent arrival in Ore
gon from Michigan, brought tents, firearms,
and provisions, prepared to rough it in the
wild wilderness, which he expected to find.
He brought two sacks of flour in order to
hare something to eat. besides the fish he
expected to snare and the wild meat cap
tured in the wilderness. He must have
been surprised to find a civilization eaual or
superior to that which he left. His case
fairly illustrates an opinion entertained bv
thousands in the east, that Oregon is a place
inhabited by nomadio tribes of the "Biiflklo
Benton Leader: Some of our democratic;
brethcrn of the press are exercised because
the Oreaonian has said iu substance that tha
fate J udge Terry stood for the methods and
purposes of the democratic party. But
they might well have possessed their souls
in patience upon the certainty that the
Oretjonian would itself shortly refute the
truth of thft statement. And it has done
so. It nobly praises the methods and rjar-
poses of the head and representative of the
democratic party in Oregon, Governor Pen
noyer, and likens his opponent, Mr. Taffe,
to Judge Terry. And it is not iinnrnhahlo
that tho governor will down the recalcitrant
fisherman of Celilo, lust as Naulo downed
the bully of California.
A curious incident haonened to John K1.
Icy at the Walla Walla hospital a few days
since, says an exchange. A robber tube
had been placed in his side to remove the
pus formed by pleurisy. The incision in
healing had reached the ltchinc staue. and.
human like, he began to scratch the injured
part. While doing this be loosened tha
pin that held the tube in place, and upon
taking the next breath the tube was drawn
inside the body. It happened to be in each
a spot that it went clear around the spine.
Drs. Shaw and Blalock operated upon the
man, having to make a long incision in tha
back to find the tube, which was finally re
moved. The O. R. 4 N. Co. have brought suit in"
the circuit court of Morrow county against
the bondsmen who agreed to furnish the
right of way and depot grounds of the Wil
low creek branch road. The railrond
company claimed to haye advanced $24,933.
72 for the right ot way and depot grounds
and the bondsmen have paid them only
15,000. Tiiere are about 00 bondsmen,
defendants, who are sued for the balance of
9,933.72. The Heppner Gazette aays: It
will result in the bondsmen having to put
up that amount, less about $3000 in notes
which is still due and collectible. The Oa-z-'tle
is "in for it" with the remainder of
the bondsmen, and knows no other way Out
of the difficulty but to pay up its propor
tion of the arrears.
