MAY INVOLVE TUB UNITED STATE.
A Question at Issue Willi the Japanese
Washington, August 9. Ia the event of
(war between Russia and Japian, the
United States may ifind Itself an Interest
ed party unless Japan retracts from the
position wihidh they assumed towards the
United States during the progress of Uie
war witiu China.
It Is not generally kaawii tihat just be
fore the declaration oi tUia armistice
whiah preceded the aignature of the trea
ty, of peace, -am issue bad-grown up be
tween the United tSates and Japaa that
tteeaterted to lead to actual hostilities be
tween the two countries, and that a hos
tile crash, tvu perhaps only arrested by
the conclusion oif the Chinese war. This
issue airose tihrouglh the assertion by the
Japanese authorities of uhei right to
search American' vessels. They insisted
that they had the right to board an
American vessel If they dhose, to take
from her aray Chinese, or any enemies
they might find, even though they were
but passengers. ' Our minister promptly
denied 'the existence of such a right on
the part of a combatant, and a toot cor
respondence ensued. Thei Japanese in
sisted on their right, though Minister
Dunn intimated that tlhe first assertion of
such ia, right would be regarded by the
United States as an unfriendly act and
therefore likely try lead to war. Matters
progressed to suih a perilous state that
when Admiral Carpenter was ubout to
escort an American merchant ship out
of a Japanese port to prevent her de
tention by the Japanese, the latter, it is
said, gave orders to 'the shore batteries
ai the mouth of the (harbor to flre upon
wie American naval vessels if they at
temptedi to do so. This fact came out
after the conicu8loa of the armistice
which fortunately occurred at Just this
point in the negotiations, thereby pre
venting an incident that wotild certainly
'have resulted in -war. But the significant
point is that the Japanese have steadily
clung to the same contention, promising
serious trouble in the) event of another
war In' the east.
. JUMiPED TO HIS DEATH.
An Oregon Man. Commits Suicide on Van
Victoria, B. C, August 8 In a fit of
despondency John H. Mullen, lately a
real estate dealer in Albany, Or., Jumped
from the Esquimau and Nanaimo railway
bridge last evening, and this morning his
body was found floating in the harbor.
Mullen arrived hero ten days ago and
while on his way wires a friend from
Beattae: "Will be on the Seattle boat
today or else good bye." He was feeling
blue all the time he was here, but no
cause is known for It, as be was said to
have property In Seattle as well as in
Oregon. He was 46 years old, single, and
several years ago was agent here for the
Singer Sewing Machine Company. His
tongue was held firmly between his teeth,
and the air In his lungs was kept from
escaping, which made the body buoyant.
Improvement in All Lines Noticed.
New York, August 9. Bradstreet's to
morrow will say: The features of h
business week are the continuance of a
remarkable strength of demand for an
increase in the production of steel and
; Iron, practically ell of the first-class pro
duction plants having been put into ser
vice, and not a few f the cripples. Strik
ing as was the demand for the advance in
the price of wheat, leather, cotton and
other staples, for the month or txro fol
lowing March 1 last,- no rebound sines
the depression of ISM has been stronger
or mors surprising than that In iron and
steel. Of the same nature is the evidence
of in roved business conditions shown
b the activity fa most all maaufacturing-
lines, particularly,' of . course, those in
Which Iron and steel are employed.
General trade on tha Pacific coast has
improved within a month. One of t'he
features is the importance of the foreign
trade of Seattle and Tacomuv. Develop
ment of our interchange of commodities
iih Oriental, Mexican and Central and
South American countries Is having a
marked effect upon the cities named.
Names Mentioned, but Appointment Will
Washington, August 9. There is much
speculation as to who will be President
Cleveland's choice for the supreme bench,
to succeed the late Justice Jackson, but
beyond the mention of available names
there is mttle of a definite nature at this
early date. It Is the general understand
ing that no appointment will be made un
til after the meeting of congress, aa the
place is one of too much importance and
dignity for a recess appointee to go on
the bentoh and take the chances of a sub
sequent rejection by the senate.
It is suggested that the, selection is
most likely to be made from the East,
and probably from Njw York. The name
of ex-Postmaster General Blssell is men
tioned. Should Mr. Cleveland go to his
cabinet for the appointment he is most
likely to consider Mr. Wilson or Mr.
Smith. The name of Representative Pat
terson, of Tennessee, will probably be
culled to the attention of the president,
as he comes from the state of the late
Justice. The names of Don M. Dickinson
and Solicitor General Holmes Conrad are
Chicago, August 8. All of the crack
cyclists of the country, with, the excep
tion Of a very few cash prize profession
als, whose wants are mot orovided fop

the National Cycling tournament which
began this afternoon at the one-third

The feat of riding a mile in competition
in 1:B8 1-5, accomplished by B.iM, the
Class B leader, was the particular event
of the afternoon. When the start was

then ground out a warm pace fromi the
start. Murphy, Cooper and Brown fol
lowed Bald in order, but the others were
killed off almost at the start. Going down
the stretch he went past the pacemakers
and finished alone.

Laborer's Wages to Be Raised in the Coal
New York, August 8. R. G. Dun & Co.
say In tlhelr weekly review of trade: Bus
iness continues unusually active for mid.
summer and though there is a perceptible
relaxation there are no signs of reaction.
One change of great Importance (which
the past week has brought is the ami.
caible settlement between coal mines and
employes in Pninisylvanla, Ohio and In
diana. It is said mbout 100,000 men will
have their wages increased after October
1 by this adjustment, and while the en
largement of the purchasing power is of
consequence, it seams even more import
ant that a chronic case of controversy has
been removed by the new agreement as
to company stores.
Failures for the week ware 225 in the
United States against 2C1 last year, and
43 in Canada against 64 last year.

Palouse City, August 9.-The Bank of

The iPendleton Fire to Cover a Murder.
Pendleton, Or., August 9.-Today It was
discovered that Geo. H. Clacking, a vic
tim of Wednesday night's fire, was sec
retary of the Elk Lodge at Cascade
Locks, a young man of good, standing
of that town, employed by Day Brothers
on the government works.
There are many reasons to think that
some one was murdered before the fire
was set, and that the hotel was burned to
wipe out the evidence of guilt. A woman

Five Thousand Cases Above
Last Year's Pack.
RESUME OF THE ' SEASON
Royal fhlnookg Are Twenty Per
Cent More Plentiful Thau They
Were Last .Year, ,
Astoria, Or., 10 p ,m., 9th August, 1S9S.
At midnight tomorrow evening the spring
salmon season of the Columbia river for
1K5 will be a thing of the past, and below
will be found our estimate of the pack,
giving the total figures at 193,200 cases,
of 6,000 cases In excess of last year's re
turns for the whole river. The season
now ondlng has been one of unusual hap
penings and strangely fluctuating runs.
From the 10th of April to the 20th fish
ermen made extraordinarily good catches
and it looked as it the year was going
to dhow a very satisfactory advance over
tho pack of 1894. Before the end of April,
however, matters slackened up consid
erably, and severe storms in the early
prt of May almost entirely stopped the
fishing for some days. . For three weeks
the work continued unsettled with sparse
occasional runs, the fish exhibiting signs
of being fully a month aheud of time and
much advanced la size and color. After
slacking up to a very low average at the
end of May the pack improved a great
deal, Being unlformally good during the
first week of June on the lower river,.
On the Upper river at this time the can
nerymen began to get anxious, for very
fa flsh'had put in an appearance. Their
anxiety was fuily Justified by subsequent
results, and up to this date none of the
canneries above the Willamette have
made anything like an average pack, The
lower river work went on satisfactorily
till the 15th, of June, when the bottom
fell out of operations and for twenty
days .there followed a period; of almost
aDsWOTCifltagnatlon,. Very few of tho
canneries'were working a full. force of
man, and everything looked like
a heavy ehortuge. On Juty 9th, how
ever, there was a very perceptible change
and from that time to the present writ
ing prospects have continued to improve.
On Tuesday, July 15th, there was a mag
nificent run of salmon, easily making that
day the banner date of the year, and
since then 'Chare have been soma ex
ceptionally tine runs rwith very few dull
minutes between, On the 3rd cf t'he pres
ent month things slacked up slightly,
but the pack has remained good up to
date. While not equal to the correspond
ing week of last year, the last six days
have averaged fully 460 cases to each can
nery per day, and the season comes to
an end with a small surplus in place of
a shortage. Probably the most noticeable
feature .'Of the year's operations has
been the largely increased pack of Chi
nook fish, and the big decrease in t'he
catch of bluclbacks.' The Increase of Chi
nooks oyer last season is fully 20 per
cent . Steelheads are short of last year's
pack nearly 8 per cent, Ther is little
doubt that the river has never been better
or mora systematically Ashed than
during the present season. The gear
employed has been both more complete
and more extensive than it was in 1894,
and returns seem to indicate that gill
netters have got considerably bigger re
turns than men engaged with any other
contrivances. Several of the seines have
turned in excellent catches but many
others have done very little, especially
those higher up the river. The majority
of the traps in Baker's Bay have not done
as well as it was expectod they would do,
but soma of 'the best built and those in
the most favorable positions have sent
in very big returns. The following Is
the pack of Columbia River salmon for
the last ten years: 't
Year , Cases.
18CT , 373,800
1889 , , 326,500
1S91 , 372,760
tK!)2 , 602,800
One of the extraordinary features of
this season's work has been the largely
increased demand for Columbia River
calmon from Great Britain and the Con
tinent, This year 104,000 cases will leave
here for foreign ports as against 26,500
In 1891, a difference In favor of 1895 of
78,500 eases. So, notwithstanding the fact
that 4000 more cases of salmon have been
packed on the Columbia this season, there
Ttlli be a shorbage of 70,000 cases for home
consumption.' There is not very much of
the pack yet unsold, though considerable
stocks remain on hand. There was a

rrents at the beginning of the season, and
this has had a tendency to loud; up things

loads have been eoid for delivery after
September, and by the middle of that
month no doubt this end (will ba totally

thi.it' there is an increasing tendency in
the trade to purchase mora frceJy of high,
grade goods. Fall packing on tills river
win begin on tha 10th of September. ID
is probable that the price for raw ma
terial will be higher than It was in 1S94.
Tha following la a complete and accurate
list of all the canneries operating this
year, with their catches for ithe staaon.
These figures have been compiled with
great care, and Include an allowance on
an average of 400 cases each, for the
