Washington, June 14. AWtorney-Gen-e-ral
Harmon has received the following- letter
from the secretary of state In relation to
the filibustering expeditions against Cuba:
"It is a matter of current rumor ana
newspaper report that ait various points
in the United tSates attempta are mak
ing by the enhstment of men, equlp
ment and arming of vessel's and by oth
er illegal measures to aid in the insur
rection mow In progress in Cuba. While
this department had not been furnished
W-t'ti tangible evidence confirmatory of
such rumors and reports, It deems it of
great importance that no possible oppor
tunity shall be given for complaint that
the government of th United States has
In any respect fallen short of Its full
duty 00 a friendly natdom." .
Complying with Mr. Oiney's suggestion
Attorney General Hawmon has directed
all United States attorneys and marshals
of U'he Atlantic coast line districts to
act in conjunction and take all steps
necessary and proper to prevent viola
tions of the' neutrality lawa.

DUN'S WEEKLY REPORT.

Weekly Reviewaf Trade will say: It Ik
no longer a question whether buslnesb
Imiwovts. Not for a long time have our
reports fnm uli parts of the counnry been
so uniformly favorable. The daily aver
age of bank clearings In June is 24.8 per
cent larger than last year, though ll.
per cent less than In 1892. The most
potent influence has been the receipt ot
more favorable advices rtgiairdl,ig grow
ing, crops. Labor troubles are getting
out of Dhe way, wages in many establish
ments are r.slng, and the Iron Industry
now leading. There is a general im
provement in manufactures. The moi.

draws near when the crop export will

this week, the effect of previous trans
actions has not been exhausted. Di
minished receipts of money from the
interior Indicate better employment In
business and especially at the West, and
Dhe volume of commercial loans steadily
rises, and is now fair, for this reason,
even in good years. The failures for tile

Astoria, Ore. 10 p. n., 14th June, 1896.
Stocks continue to move away from the
river in a fairly satisfladbory manner and
at ali the larger canneries shipments are j
being made almost as1 fast as they are
placed In readiness for orders. The fea
ture of the week has been the lively de.
mand from extreme Easterni markets
which exceeds the orders from that sec-.
t.oh for any other year since 18s0. Sev
eral Southern centers also are showing
more than the usual interest in. canned
salmon,- and it looks as If a'thort-pack
and slightly increased demands would
hold prices up to a very satisfactory ng
ure up to the end of the season. New
York correspondents report a practically
empty market in Columbia river spring
fish, and very satisfactory Inquiry from
all the big grocery houses, lloston re
ports that Massachusetts buyers are
pushing orders fast. Omaha correspond
en ts ' all agree that the rise in canned
meats has had a beneficial effect on the
price of salmon in that centre, and the
demand is growing. In St. Paul salmon
is firm and aotlve, and four large orders
has been placed In the twin cit.es during
the last few days. There luave been sev
eral cuts In freight rates of transconti

of the latest schedules are New York,

eave out at the end of the month wtth
.4,000 cases, principally for Liverpool ana
London buyers. Operations -on the low.r
Columbia during the past seven days
have been fulr. From Saturday fc Wed
nesday inclusive the run was large and
steady, averaging 16 fish to the boat
every day, with fine weight at an avenge
of fuliiy 80 pounds. Dur.ng the last three
days, however, the catch has slackened
up considerably and today showed re
turns smaller than they have been for
soune weeks. Matters in the vicinity ot
the canneries along the middle Columbia
are siightly Improving and each of the
five canneries operating in that vicinity
. averaging 100 cases per day. Very lit
tie work is being done by the traps, but
the seining appliances are all showing
increased catches, and will no doubt con
tinue to do . well . till the close ot the
season. The canneries at The Dalles and
the Cascades are still quiet and though
the Increased seining returns have help
ed to make things move slowly, the up
r.ver pack Is a failure to the present
date. Biuebucks are beginning to ap
pear in the river In email quantities,
showing every day very gradual In
crease, and it has now been definitely
doteiimined that the blue-back oulput w.ll
not reach to anywhere near Its legitimate
figures, even for an off year, which this
undoubtedly is. Steelhead are begin
ning to arrive and there seems to be
every prospect of a very slack run of
this grade of salmon as well. The quality
of the Chlnooks continues most excellent
and the fish remain a deep red color,
with flekhjlrm and hard.

On the next Sunday the association

the two schemes he asked all those who

He then requested all those Who had been

(MELfLOID, A NEW ALLOY.
The London Engineer, May 8, describes
a new alloy which has been brought out
by the Phosphor Bronze company, and
It Is said to Justify Its right to be called
new, by possessing qualities not previous
ly found In any of the bronzes.- K is
the Invention of the company s engineer,
Mr, Bull, already known as the Inventor
of Bull's metal. Melloid may be de
scribed as a malleable - bronze; It Is a
mixture of copper and tin, which Is en.
0.rely free from zinc, aluminum or iron,
and it differs from phosphor bronze, man
ganese bronze or Bull's metal, In being
tough and ductile at all temperatures.
Many descriptions of brass and bronze
can bs forged or welded, but Mr. Bull
states -that with all of them there Is a
temperature at which they become brittle.'
This may vary from 400 to 900 degrees
Fahr,, and when it is passed they again
become tenacious and malleable, if their
temperature be raised stJIL higher.
