WIRES ARE DOWN.
At 10:30 last night the Western Union
wires went down somewhere between
this, city and Portland, consequently
the Astorlan appears this morning with
only a part of Its telegraph report, most
of It being afternoon dispatches. It Is
not thought the break Is a bad one, as
the working of the wire Is evidently
hindered by coming In contact with
the fallen limbs of trees, or coming ln
contact with water. -

. THE MEETING DIDN'T MEET.
Some time ago, the Astorlan called
attention of the members of the Cham
bar of Commerce to the fact that the
Pacific Can Company's property was
advertised and sold by the sheriff for
taxes, and that It was the duty of the
chamber to look Into the matter, as
they had guaranteed the company's
taxes for a certain number of years.
Did they do It?
Yes; they as individuals met on the
street and discussed the matter, and all
agreed that It should bo attended to.
Did they attenu to It
Let us see.
' A meeting of the chamber was called
for yesterday afternoon for the purpose
of taking up the matter, and It was
so understood among the members.
When the' hour of meeting arrived,
Instead of every member of the cham
ber being on hand, there was Just one,
Vice President Tallent He waited un
til 2 o'clock, and as no one else came,
he, too, left, and tha room waa again
What does this mean? 1
Does It mean that the members of
the chamber do not realize what the re
action will be If, they repudiate their
their agreement with this factory, whom
they Induced by certain promises, to lo.

Washington, July 31. The prospects
of an agreement on the tnriff were much
Improved today. For the first time ln
many days the house Democratic con
ferees come from the meeting with a
statement that the previous irrecon
cilable differences were ln progress of
an amicable adjustment. With much
satisfaction the house members stated
to their associates that the senators
had shown a disposition for the first
tlm to meet the house half way. As
to when a full agreement would be per
fected there was some difference of
opinion. One house conferee said It
would nrobably be this week,. " An
other thought It would be "soon."
Chairman Wilson would not even admit
an understanding had, gone far enough
to warrant a prediction of a Bpeedy
repoi-t He said, however, that tlie con
ferees had at last done some business,
and - made -progress today which was
more than could be safd of any past
meeting. The senate conferees came
from the meeting without showing the
hopefulness of the house members.
They said the conference was far from
a decision as it ha& been. While there
was this conflict among those thorough
ly Informed of the inside workings of
the conference, the general belief pre
vailed that the hopefulness of the house
conferees had some substantial foun
dation. NOTHING ACCOMPLISHED.

of the tariff conference committee did
not accomplish anything -this morning.
Chairman Voorhees, of the senate con
ferees, and Wilson, of the house, were
both absent on account of Illness. When
thi- meeting adjourned,' It wns under
stood the conferees would get together
again at 1 o'clock.

FULL OF HOPE.
Washington, July 31. The friends of
the WilBon bill were full of hope today,
They assured the chairman and other
house conferees cn the tariff that the
house Democrats could now b! de
pended upon to stand by the house bill,
and Chairman Wilson and friends are
likely to talcs a conspicuous part In the
