"Specimens of chloride have been brought

Oregon or southern Utah, and the near
est locality where they abound is in
southeastern Nevada, in lands wholly
destitute of timber and different from any

Lokdo:,-, May 4th. Though not defi

Russia has consented to England's pro
posed arbitration, and the referring of
the whole matter to a third power. The
English government to-day sent orders
to Dover to cease further chartering of
ships; this, with cessation of war meas

stoppago of war preparations.

DEATH" OF COM. VAKDEEBILT's WIDOW.

residence in this city this morning.

Rosebubo, May 4. There was a jail de

prying off theiron bars and escaping to
the woods; they are not yet recaptured.
East Pbtlakd, May 4. While Mrs.
Wilkie, of this place was engaged in
building a fire in her cook stove this
morning the stove exploded, burning the
poor woman in a horrible manner. The
affair occasioned great excitement and is
somewhat mysterious. It is thought that
during the absence of tho family at
church last night some fiend broke into
the house and put dynamite or giant pow
der in the stove.
London', May 4. The News, govern
ment organ, in a leading editorial, says;
"Tho prospects forpeace have been much
cleared and more amply confirmed with
in the last forty-eight hours. A Russian
dispatch conciliatory in tone and sub
stance, was sent to tho government by
telecraph, after the czar had conferred
with his ministers, and a courier with tho
official written reply to Earl Granville is
now on the way to London." The News
warns its readers, however, against a
nasty conclusion that peace is assured.
New Yobk, May 3. The Suits London
cable says: Opinion veered tho past
week more frequently and completely
than at any timo during tho crisis. SVhen
Gladstone was speaking in tho commons
everybody said: "This certainly means
war.' This interpretation, apart from
the magnificent eloquence and splendid
delivery of the speech, was the secret of
its wonderful effect in forthwith silencing
all opposition; but while parliament was
thus convinced of war, tho stock exchange
and the general public the very next day
declared for pence. This tendency has
been increasing daily, until to-day peace
is believed almost concluded. For once
popular impression is based on sound
surmises. Things stand as follews:
The frontier question is virtually settled.
England knows Russia's wants, nnd hps
decided to yield to the most thereof. The
Penjdeh point of honor will be got
around by clever diplomatic dodging.
The difficulty has been to inquire into
the Penjdeh affair without passing judg
ment on Lumsdcn and Komaroff. Nei
ther power will submit tho acta of its
own officers directly to arbitration, which
would admit a question of Lumsden's
veracity or KomarofTs strategy. Arbitra
tion, therefore, will not bo on the officers,
but on tho rcol meaning of the agree
ment of March 17, and whether what will
euphemistically be called an interpreta
tion thereof, is correct for either side.
Meanwhile the disputed territorv will
not bo further occupied.
One probable result of arbitration is
that England will claim money indemni
ty for the Afghans, and, as a minister
said laughingly, "England will perhaps
quietly lend Russia money to enable her
to purchase peace."
A settlement undoubtedly has been
brought about by tho nervous terror
which overcame both parties when they
found themselves face to face with the
grim countenance of war. England has
visibly cooled in the few days during
which war seemed certain. The tories be
gan to ask ono another what they were
going to fight about. The czar shrank
from unknown possibilities and was cha
grined at the revelntions of Russian pov
erty, in ner inaDiiuy to purcnaso even a
To-day promises that tho Russian scare
will almost bo forgotten in a few weeks,
ana tne momentary unity of the parties
will bo broken, and air rent with the
hoarse cries of the rival candidates in
tho coming elections. Tho government,
on the whole, got well out of tho busi
ness. Jarjr List.

The steamer Olympian, which has been
tied up on Puget souud for some months,
is to bo taken to San Francisco, where
she will go on tho dry dock for repairs.
Her hull will bo scraped and the. vessel
repainted and caulked throughout. Tho
Olympian is at present at Port Townsend,
awaiting an opportunity to put to sea.
She will first go loNeah bay, where tho
signal servi'ce reports will be closely

If stormy weather is encountered at any
time says the Neics, tho Olympian can
put into Shoalwater bay. Columbia river,
Yaquina bay or anv of "the safe harbors
along the coast. The steamer Alaskan,
twin to the Olympian, which was brought
here last year with the intention of plac
ing her on the Portland-Astoria route,
still lies at the bono vard in north Port
land. She is in good condition, and the
machinery is not rusted or out of order,
as many suppose. The Oregon Railway
and Navigation company has always tak
en good care of all its boats, and the
Aluskan, the most valuable, is not an ex
ception. All that need3 repairing are
tho guards, which were taken up when
the vessel was coming around the Horn.
Tho rooms, galley. etc.,require a littlefix
ingup; .$2,000 or $3,000 would place her
in excellent trim. Neither the Alaskan
nor the Olympian arc adapted to the
ocean trade. Both were built for sound
or river navigation, and long voyages on
the ocean would play sad havoc with
them. It is understood in transportation
circles that the Alaskan may be repaired
and placed on the Portland-Ilwaco route
this summer. All depends on the condi
tion of business.

How a Whole Town Wafc Scared By One Han.
A gentleman who is ill a position to
know, offers the Xetcs the following ex
planation of the story of the Russian spy,
who was alleged to have visited Victona
recently for the purpose of securing plans
of the fortifications about the harbor.
Tho Alaska fur company leaso a portion
of their sealing grounds," adjoining those
rented from tho United States, firm
Russia. As tho leaso is about run out
the company sent n trusted agent to St.
Petersburg to have it renewed. Tho
Russian authorities, however, instead of
extending the lease, sent pn agent to
Alaska to findont what tho situation was,
and to learn whether the islands could
not bo made to yield more for the gov
ernment than they have been. The agent
proceeded to Alaska, looked over tho
situation and gathered material for hi
report. On his way down ho had to stav
u. "i u iu 1 lciuna, uuu neing n
military officer he naturally examined
the defenses of Victoria in order to pas3
away tho time. There was no intention
on hi3 part to act tho part of a spy. Af
ter ho left Victoria it wes learned that
ho was a Russian official, and the story
soon gained credence that he was n spy,
and caused no littlo consternation in

Three boys, two of whom, Mark Kyle

On several occasions I havo gono to the

closed, and upon asking for a money order
at the general delivery window, was in
formed that tho money order department
was closed for tho day and that I would
