FEARFUL PREDICTION REGARD
ING THE PLAGUE.
AGAINST ITS INTRODUCTION
VESSELS "WITH FOUL BILLS RE
FUSED ADMISSION IN EGYP
SERIOUS RESULTS OF
STRIKE IN LIVERPOOL.
THE PLAGUE DECREASING IN
London, Feb. 11. The privy coun
cil has ordered a careful inspection
of bills of health of crews and messen
gers of vessels arriving from the Black
Rome, Feb. II. The president of
the board of health speaking to-day in
the chamber of deputies, predicted
that if the plague penetrated Europe
it would destroy a third of the popu
lation. The government has ordered
twenty days' quarantine again.
Alexandria, Feb. 11. Yessels
with foul bills of health were refused
admission in Egyptian iorts.
Liverpool, Feb. 12. Trade here
is partially paralized on account of the
strike. The strike among sailors has
become so general that is difficult to
obtain crews except at increased rates.
It is stated that there are thirty grain
laden ships at Queenstown, aud that
owners do not know where to send
them. Meanwhile the grain may be
heating in the vessel holds and rend
valueless. There are many reports of
intimidation by dock laborers and
others to prevent men from working
until the dispute is settled.
Strikers to-day refused old wages
and one hour longer work daily. The
proposition of shipowners for arbitra
tion was also rejected.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 12. The epi
demic has entirely disappeared from
Astrakhan. No cases for several days.
A curious notion prevails in
some quarters about war claims.
A man who remains at home and
attends to his business, and hap
pens, in the course of the war, to
lose a few steers or an old barn,
asks the nation to compensate him
for his loss. But the man who
goes to the. front and loses his life
is not compensated. It seems
about time, therefore, to educate
war claimants up to the idea that
war demands of the people in
whose behalf it is waged the great
est sacrifices. One man loses a
limb, another his life, another his
health and a fourth a portion of
his property. Without assuming
that war claims in no case should
be paid, it is safe to assume that a
large per cent, should properly be
charged to a profit and loss ac
count, which, in time of war, every
adult male keeps with the govern
ments. Sacrifice for one's country
may be of a different character,
but there is little justice in com
pensating a stay-at-home oitizen
for a burnt barn while the poor
fellow who loses life or limb in
battle is beyond the reach of com
pensation Lodging House Persons requiring
furnished or unfurnished rooms can be
accommodated at reasonable rates at
Mrs.Munson's Chenamus st, Astoria.

Polar Expedition Heard From.
The Golos announces that authentic
intelligence has been received from
the governor of e:istern Siberia that
Professor Nordenskjold's steamer Yega
is icebound forty miles from East
Cape. The authorities of Jakutsks
have been instructed to issue a general
summons to the natives to assist the
expedition. A special relief expedi
tion of raindeer and dog sledges has
been organized, but it is feared this
assistance will be too late. A Russian
man-of- war on the Pacific station will
shortly proceed to Bullrings strait to
endeavor to extricate the Yega, or
bring off the crew.
