Carried the Germs.
Ban Francisco, August 30. The ateam-
er Monowai, which arrived tonight from
Australian ports, did not stop at Hono
lulu as usual. When oft that port the
steamier was hailed by the American con
sul in a small boat who announced that
Cholena had broken out In Honolulu.
Already there had ibeen eight deaths
from Wat disease among the natives and
Chinese. As cholera, broke out soon af

The Fall Trading Season Opens With
Lively iProspects.
New York, August 80. R. G. Dun &
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade tomorrow
will say:
The improvement In markets and prices
continues, and whereas a few months
ago everybody was nursing the faintest
hopes of recovery it has now come to be
only a question of what branches, If
any, the rise in prices and Increase of
business may go too far. A strong con
servative feeling is finding its expression,
not to the extent of controlling the mar
ket or industries, but a warning against
a too rapid expansion and rise. In some
directions the advance in prices clearly
checks future business, tout the encour
aging features have great power.
Exports of gold continue, but are met
by. syndicate deposits and are expected
to cease soon. The anxiety about the
monetary future of government affairs
no longer hlndiers trade movements. The
crop prospects, except for cotton, have
somewhat improved during the .week.
The Important steps toward the reor
ganization of the great fairways give
hope to investors. Labor troubles are
for the moment less threatening, and
some of importance have been definitely
settled. Industries are not only doing
better than anybody had exepetedi but
1 are counting upon a great business for
the rest of the year.
The advance in prices of iron and las
products has added about $2 per ton more
in a single week to the price of Bessemer
steel at Pltteburg, and yet the great
steel companies are 'buying wherever they
can, while the air is full of reports to the
effect that the finished product will fur
ther advance. Many ot the ablest men
in the tousiness deplore this rapid rise.
not that it may expose some branches
to foreign competition, but various com
binations which now control' the many
iron nroduets have so successfully lifted
prices thus far that the markets seem
to lack the restraint or individual cau
tlon and meanwhile, holders of large
quantities purchased for future sale or
delivery want to get all they can for
them. The demand, whether on old or
new orders, appears large enough to sus.
tain -all advances yet made.

It la Thought tWat Most of Htr Cargo
Can Be Haved.
Marshfield, Or., August 30.-The British
ship Bawnmore .which ran ashore Wed
nstlv morning- about B o'clock during a
heavy 'fog 14 miles south of the mouth
of the Coqull'le River, nas cnangea ner
position very little during the lest 24
Her cargo consisted of 1000 tons of
coal, about 1B0O tons of merchandise, and
several ste.nm launches and electric
treat ears. She lies boadslde to the sea,
with her head to the south, with a heavy
list to starboard.
According to the captaln'3 reckoning he
should have been twenty miles off shore
when she struck the beach. Captain
Woodsldes' Impression is that the metal
in the electric street cars which were
loaded on the deck near the pilot house
caused a variation in the compass which
threw him out of Ms course. The sea
was very smooth when the ship struck
and Captain Woodsldes thought that by
throwing off part of his cargo and light
ening her stern that he would be enabled
to float her off. He therefore threw oft
thirty tons of flour and a numrjur 01 me
electric cars, but they soon saw it was
of no use and they took to the boats, all
reaching the shore, Which was about
700 feet from the ship.
The captain says that If tie toad had
assistance when he first struck the beach
he would have been able to have gotten
off with very tittle damage. The tug
Monarch will reach the scene ot the
wrack tonight, when an attempt will be
made to get the Bawnmore In deep water
nrain. but she Iras settled twelve or
fourteen feet in the sand, and at high
water the seas roll over her.
Men of experience who have visited
the wreck say that ft will be almost Im
poslble to save the Ship. If the sea con
tinues as smooth as it Is at present it
Is believed that most of her cargo can
be saved.
Captain Weodslde and his crew, ac.
companled by the Bandon Hfe saving
crew, are camped on the beach near the
scene of the wreck and will remain there
as long as there are any hopes of saving
the ship or cargo. The crew Jiave'suc
ceeded In trettlng all of their personal
effects ashore.
Seattle, August 30. By a ru3ng of the
commissioner general of immigration the
doors of the United States have been
thrown wide open to dissolute women of
foreign lands who have escaped detee
tlon on their entrance here.
The decision is of vital Importance to
the Pacific Coast as it affects the ad
mission of Japanese women sent bore
for immoral purposes. The case is that
of Fukul Moto, a Japanese woman who
for several days past has been in the
custody of the United States authorities
on a charge of being within the country
for Immoral purposes and who it was
thought was liable .to deportation. The
woman, In company with several others
arrived in this country last May, and the
Inspector was prepared to establish the
fact that she has since plied her nera
rious occupation.
The commissioner general wired that
the woman could not be deported unless
she was known to foe a public charge.
Shewas accordingly released today.
The Official 'Report of the Bannock In
dian Trouble. ,
Washington, August SO.-The depart
ment of Justice has received from the
United States District Attorney and the
marshal of Wyoming, official reports ot
their investigation into the Bannock In
dian troubles, made by direction of the
attorney general. The district attorney
' "I have no doubt whatever that the
killing of the Indian Tanega about the
13th of July was an atrocious, outrageous
and a cold-blooded murder, perpetrated
on the part of Constable Manning and
his deputies, in pursuance of a scheme
and conspiracy on their part to prevent
the Indians from exercising the right
and privilege which is in my opinion
very clearly guaranteed to them by the
treaty. The Rilling of game by the in
dlans and by an increasing number of
tourist hunters threatens to so deplete
this region of big game, as to Jeopardize
the occupation of professional guides at
Jackson's Hole. It was decided to keep
the Indiana out of the region this year
and the events Of this summer are the
result of carefully prepared plans, If a
full Investigation of the Jackson's Hole
affair should te held, the faot would be
established that when Constable Man
ning and Ms posse of 26 settlers arrested
the party of Indians on July 13, and
started wttJi them for Marysville, lie ano
Ms men did all they could to tempt the
Indians to try to escape, In order that
there might be the 'basis of Justification
for killing some of them. The old In
dian was mind, and he was shot in the
back four times. It would, however, be
tout an act of simple Justice to bring the
men who murdered the Indians to trial.
There are, however, no officials in the
Jiaokson's Hole country, state or na.
tlonal, who would hold any of Manning's
posse for trial."
No Trouble With the Indians on Stein's
Burns, Or., August 30 (via Ontario, Or.
August 30) There has been no trouble
with the Indian's on Stein's mountain or
elsewhere in this country thus far. The
Indians from the Warm Springs and
Umatilla reservations come annually Into
this country to kill deer for their skins
leaving the carcasses to go to waste,
and the citizens of this county are ue-
termined to put a Btop to this work..
The Judge wrote to the agents or these
respeotlve agencies early in the season
a'sklng them to keep the Indians out of
this county, tout the agents made no re
sponse and the people have taken the
thing In 'hand. There are about fifty
Warm Springs Indians here today, and
although there has been no trouble thus
far, should they persist in going to Stein's
Mountain there Is likely to toe trouble.
There have been no Bannocks on the
Stein's Mountain or within two hundred
miles of it this season. The story ot
signal fires and people getting together
at Diamond Valley is correct, but the
scare .Is over.

His Views on Columbia River
' Improvements.
Government Hag Made a Fine Hor-
bor at Mouth of River and Port
land Cannot Expect More.
The following interview, published in
yesterday's Oregonian, with Congressman
Clark, of Missouri, will toe of the great
est Interest to Aistorlans and Clatsop
county generally. Mr. Clark is the same
gentleman who visited Astoria (Wednes
day with Mr. Harrtmond and Mr. John
Claflln, of New York, interviews with
whom were published in Thursday's edi
Major Charles 'N. Clark, representative-
elect from the First 'Missouri district,
who expects to toe a member of the river
and harbor committee of the next lower
house of congress, does not favor fur
ther appropriation toy the government
to Improve the Columbia river between
Portland and Astoria. He says that it
has provided a harbor near the mouth of
the river, which is all that it should be
expected' to do, and that to Improve the
river further would toe to undertake work
under the head of Internal Improvements
which properly belongs to the individual
states Interested.
Major Cluirk has been to view the jetty
with Messrs. A. B. iHantmond, J. C. Stan
ton, John CMin and IL. B. Seeley. While
in the vicinity of the river's mouth he
was taken to view a new townslte or two,
which, It is supposed; are to be reached
by a continuation of the Astorla-Goble
road. The whole party returned to the
city yesterday morning, Major Clark well
primed with Information which appears
to have convinced him that the govern.
ment should make no further effort to
give and maintain for Portland a channel
to the sea for deep-draught vessels. 4a
an interview at the iPorttand last evening
Major Clark said:
"Now albout the Columbia I want to
say Just this: All you have to do is to'
build that railroad from Gotole. You can'
get a low-waiter channel for deep-draft
vessels from Portland to the sea without
spending more money than the state
can afford, or than the government will
donate for the purpose. The Columbia
river is peculiar. It is an inland sea 14
miles this side of Astoria, while it Is
less than three miles wide at the Jetty,
where you have a channel of 31 feet,
which will probably not become less, ana
wUl'l profcafbly deepen a llttlo as long as
the Jetty remains there; but where the
river widen to 14 miles you have now a
channol of but 18 feet at low water, and
that is all you can get without raising a
sum ot money so enormous as to make
the idea impracticable. To 'have an ap
preciable effect, you must build a jetty
In the river there at leaat 14 or 15 miles
in length, and I do not think that the
government is ever going to provide the
money for the purpose. The government
don't care particularly for Portland. It
has given you a hanbor at the mouth or
the river, and that is all that It snuoid
be asked to do. To Improve the channel
this side of Astoria is purely inland work
and I eMail oppose the government under
taking it'. Even If the government were
to put in a big Jetty at the point I have
mentioned, that wouldn't settle tne mat
ter. for there would be a vast amount
of similar work to be done elsewhere,
You can't get that channel and you
needn't hone for It, so you had better
turn to with a will and get your Astoria
railroad throiwrh. As I said to Mr. Ham.
mond and Mr. Clafiin yesterday, I neve"r
In my experience as a rallroad-ibullder
during 30 years, saw a railroad proposl
tlon that guaranteed tne payment or
dividends from the start like the Astorla-
Goble road."
. Major Clark's attention was called to
his Incorrect statement about an 18-foot
channel this side of Astoria, and it was

show much deeper water. But he insisted

Mr. B.enjaimln was turned down with the

Major Clark defeated in tho last election
by a majority of 429, had represented the

after Major Clark had! received the Re

Portland, August 28, M35.
Hon. J. W. Welch, Astoria, Oregon:
My Dear Sir: I write to you. because
know you to be one of tho best work- '
era in the Etate of Oregon, and I wnnt
you to become interested In our exposi
tion. We are going to have the largest
and best exposition ever held in this
city. We are going to have excunElona
from the various points in Oregon t3

from Roseburg, etc., so that we wi.l have

Now you good people in Astoria and vi
cinity have lately performed an almost
Insurmountable task in raising your sub
sidy. You can make us a good exhibit
from Clatsop county for our exposition.
have written Mr. Elmore about the
fish exhibit; now I want you to take
up the matter and make us a good ex
hibit of everything in Clatsop county,
and! we will furnish free transportation
for all exhibits. I will leave the matter
entirely In your hands, asd ask that
you inform me at your earliest conven
ience what your people can and wll; do
In the way of exhibits.
With kind personal regards,
Very truly yours,
Chairman of Committee on State and
County Exhibits.
In speaking of the matter to an Asto
rian representative Mr. Welch said: "l
have called upon Mr. Elmore, Mr. Kin
ney and other cannerymen, in resard to
the matter of a general exhibit from
Clatsop county, and my Idea is that all
should Join hands and make one grand
exhibit I will donate the use of a
large store room for the purpose of
gathering together the different articles
for Inspection before being sent to Port
land, and will give my services to ar
ange and take care of the same. All
of the canneryimen should make an ex
hibitthat product of Clatsop county
which distributee 31,500,000 each year
should be shown up to the .best possible
advantage. Specimens of timothy grown
In Clatsop should be selected, and lalbelled
with the name of the rancher who grew
it. Specimens of Way, of which four tons
to the acre is produced, and two crops
raised per year, ought to be obtained and
properly-arranged to make a good show,
lng. And: then a six-foot log should be
cut Into a square piece of lunvber,
smoothly dressed and showing our pro
duct In the way of lurrfber. A statement
should be made that there are thousands
of acres of this kind of timber, the very
finest In the state, which remain open for
lnvestmont. There is now on exhibition
at the Occident a small panel containing
Ave different kinds of wood, highly pol
ished, all of which are suitable for the
finest kind of finishing and cabinet work.
"If, after the exhibit is. gotten together
and we look It over carefully, anything
Is discovered that will not reflect credit
upon us It can Jie thrown out and only
the very best sent to Portland. While
it is being gathered together the public
here oan be given an opportunity to view
the exhibit and make additions to It,
or criticise it."
Whatever Is done to sustain Clatsop's
reputation among her sister counties
should be done at once and with a unity
of action that will insure success. This
county has magnificent resources why
not make them known in a tangible man
nor Just at tho present Important Junc
ture in her history?
