that the state reward appropriation 1

county, offered today (before I saw
Tncle John's' open letter), a reward of
one thousand dollars for Information
that will lead to the arrest and con
viction of the murderers. On the .th
day of June two telegrams were re

Informed the members of the county
court, who had a few moments pre
viously adjourned, that he required a
steamer and some deputies. They, the
court, told him to go ahead. In re-
aHnse to the only other call made on
the sheriff, he sent a deputy to take
care of the situation, but tt transpired
that hla services were not required. :
am confident that the sheriff can ban
die the situation whenever the can
nerymen or others call upon him and
tell him what they wish to do. Fifteen
hundred or two thousand men on a
strike are not usually as orderly as
thoae In Astoria today. The strike
leaders know that violence will not be
tolerated and that the militia will be
called for the moment their services
are required."
The Entire
System Is
Now on the
The scheme for the reorganisation of
the O. R. and N. Co., which has been
In process of development for some
time. Is Is now in a fair way of being
speedily consummated.
Yesterday the properties of the com
pany. Including the railway lines, roll
ing stock, rights of way, real estate,
steamships, steamboats, etc, were ad
vertised for sale, under foreclosure of
the second mortgago bonds, by R. B,
Knnpp, master commissioner. The
sale Is to take place at Falrvlew, In
stead of the courthouse door, as at first
decreed, on July 9 at noon. The object
tn changing the place of sale was so
as to have It on the premises of the
company, and not, as some Imagined,
tn order to have ample room for the
crowds who might be present to buy a
flrst-class railroad and steamship prop
The sale of the Oregon Extension
Company's lines, which form part of
the O. R. and N. system, will take
place at Island City, Union county, on
July 10, and the Washington and Idaho
road, also a part ot the system, will be
sold at Tekoa on July 13. These sales
will all be advertised In the principal
papers In the counties where they are
to take place, once a week for four
weeks. The reason for holding the sales
on different days Is to enable the pur-
rhuiilrig roinmlttne to bu present at all
of them In succeaaUin,
It Is not probuble tliit inure will be
any ouIhMij bidders pr mmt, tar, even
If any i-tio happened to be nround with
loose change enouKh In his p-nket to
buy a railroad and steamboat system,
he could not bid unless he had. In
accordance with the order, of the court,
previously put up some: Ili&O.OOO, merely
a. an evidence of good filth.
It Is known, of coum. to all Inter
eated In the matter, that the O. R.
and N. system is to be sold under
mortgaite foreclosure ot the second
mort:are bonds, and v (II be bought by
the holders of these bonds, subject lo
the flrat mortgsge bonds. The holders
of the flrat mortgage bonds have had
no cause to foreclose, their bonds be
ing gilt-edged, worth 11.10 on the dollar,
and would be worth $1.25 If It were n
for the proposition for sinking fund.
The reorganisation of the company,
as nearly as can be understood. Is to
be effected by the purchasing commit
tee, after they have purchased all the
properties, turning them over to a new
company, which will reorganise the
whole concern under their old name,
and which. If present arrangements
are carried out without mischance, will
get possession and control of all the
properties by August 1, or perhaps
sooner. The reorganisation will enable
the new company, by replacing 6 per
cent bonds with 4 per cent bonds, to
reduce the fixed charge some
per annum.
One of the things connected with the
reorganisation of the company which
wilt give great satisfaction to a large
number of people. Is the fact that
large number of bills, many of which
were incurred while the t'nlon Pacific
receivers were managing the property
amounting to over 110,000. are at laat
to be paid. General Auditor Benson
says the company will be ready to pay
these claim, as soon as the papers
arrive from Omaha, which will be by
June JO or June 25. It will be some
consolation to those who have waited
so long for their Just dues to know that
they arc to receive Interest on the
amounts due them, and to many the re
ceipt of the money will be Just like
finding It.
Meeting Last Night Fairly Well At
At the meeting of the Chamber of
Commerce held last evening there was
a good attendance of members, and
after the routine business, had been
transacted, a resolution was Introduced
which, after a warm discussion, w
laid on the table. The resolution was
one denouncing the articles appearing
In the Oregonlan during the last fen-
days relative to the strike situation in
Astoria. A motion was made by Mr.
Fulton and carried, that a committee
of five be appointed to try and nego
tiate with the fishermen and cannery-
men for a settlement of the strike.
The committee, aa appointed by the
chair. Is as follows: C. W. Fulton, F.
P. Kendall, H. B. Ferguson, J. 8. Del-
linger, and J. W. Welch.
The secretary of the chamber was
Instructed to communicate with the
sheriff and ask him to take some steps
towards preventing the patrolling of
the river by armed boats.
The committee on manufactures
made a report submitting a list of the
various manufacturing Industries of
the city, and suggesting that the cham
ber take certain action towards mak
ing that body more efficient as a com
mercial body. The report was referred
to the executive committee.
Portland, June 10. Mayor-elect Pen-
noyer will not go to Salem next Sat
urday to attend the Populist indigna
tion meeting. He says the Populists
are themselves to blame for the defeat
of Vanderburg. If his suggestion had
been carried out, Meyers and Vander
burg withdrawn and Waldo nominated,
Tongue would havo been so badly
beaten that there would have been no
cry of counting out.
Special to the Astorlan.
Portland, June 10. It la reported
here that the Cannerymen's Associa
tion of Astoria forwarded a communi
cation to Governor Lord last night no
tifying him that it is unnecessary now
to incur the expense to the state of
sending troops down the river, they
having unanimously decided to aban
don all attempts at Ashing for the
remainder of the season.
Portland, June 10. The Grand Lodge
of Oregon, A. F. and A. M., convened

St. Louis, June 10. Mr. Manley, of
Maine, said this afternoon:
"In my Judgment the convention will
nominate Governor McKlnley on the
flrst ballot for the presidency. It Is
useless to attempt to deny that this
will be the result. The action of the
national committee In Its overwhelming
vote on the Alabama case, settles con
clusively how the respective states
which the committee represent will
vote In the convention."
"Mr. Reed's name will be presented
and he will be voted for, and I must
say that under no conditions or cir
cumstances can he, or will he accept
the nomination for vice-president if It
should be tendered him. The great
majority of N-w England delegates
will be loyal to Mr. Reed, but It Is evi
dent the convention is for McKlnley
and 1'. will nominate him."
That the color line has been drawn
by some of the hotels of this city there
can be no longer any doubt. The St.
James hotel today openly refused to
entertain some negro delegates and
cancelled a 16.000 contract it had made
tor feeding and housing delegates. Sev
eral weeks ago the o (Beers ot the Tlp
pacanoe Club under the direction of
M. A. Hanna, made a contract with
Thomas P. Miller, proprietor of the
St. James, to take care of a certain
number of delegates for five days dur
ing the convention. The club officers
then wrote to certain Southern delega
tions that rooms had been engaged for
them at the St. James. When Mr.
Miller learned the club Intended to
All the rooms with negroes he objected.
"If I permit you to bring negroes
here," he said, "all my help will leave.
It will put me In a most embarrassing
predicament." -
Upon the arrival of Mr. Hanna from
Cleveland today he was told of what
had occurred.
"I am sorry for Mr. Miller," said
Hanna. to his agent, "but he signed a
contract, and unless he lives up to It
he will Ond himself Involved In a most
unpleasant legal complication."
As all the leading hotels are crowded,
the Tlppacanoe Club is in a quandery
to what It will do with the colored
delegates whom It promised to take
care of.
Hanna's emissaries had also rented
the big exposition building for use dur
ing the convention, and It was sug
gested that cots be placed In It for the
use of colored men, but when the man
agement of the building learned of
this. It told the club that negroes could
not be quartered there. It was finally
agreed, however, that the colored dele
gates might be fed there.
Tony Faust, who holds a lease of the
kitchen at the exposition building, said
he could not furnish either food or
cooks to do the work. An officer of
the club said tonight that the cooks
would be Imported from Cleveland.
Many of the colored men, of their own
accord, had gone to the homes of col
ored people living here, and obtained
board and lodgings, Some of them,
however, refuse to do this.
Dr. John Grant, of Sherman, Texas,
who leads the contest for the McKln
ley delegation from the Lone Star
state. Is mad over the treatment which
he is assured the proprietor, George E.
Griswold, of the LaClede Hotel, ex
pects to give the colored members of
his delegation. Grant has a contract
with Urlswold for quarters at the La
Clede for his people, black and white
alike, and this end of It the hotelman is
going to keep. The black delegates
will not be allowed to eat In the dining
hall. ' Meals will be served in their
rooms, and there will be no lack of
attention to them, but the dlscrimlna
tlon will exist Just the same.
Decision of the Committee in Twenty
two Cases at the National Con
vention. ' St. Louis, June 10. The meeting of
the Republican national committee to
decide the contests for seats In the na
tional convention absorbed the general
Interest In affairs pertaining to the con
vention today. There were no import
ant arrivals, except of the members of
this committee, and they were so con
cerned with the proceedings of the
committee that they declined generally
to give attention to other questions.
The proceedings were of a harmonious
character, and while there was evi
dence that there was a genuine feeling
In behalf of various candidates, this
feeling did not at any time take on a
personally aggressive form.
The entire day's session was given
up to the Alabama contests, which In
volved the seats of four delegates nt
large, and all of the nine districts, ex
cept the Second, making twenty-two
seats that were in dispute. The con
tests were all decided, except those
from the Third and Fifth districts, In
which hearings were postponed on ac
count of the absence of either contest
ants or conteitantees. The points at
Issue In the Sixth and Eighth districts
were settled outside the committee and
the contests in both Instances were
withdrawn. Issue was presented to
the committee In all other cases. Of
the eighteen delegates whose cases
were decided, either by vote of the
committee or by withdrawal, sixteen
are for McKlnley and two for Reed.
There was no division upon any of
the contests except that made In the
case of the delegates-at-large, and this
was overwhelmingly in favor of
Vaughn, or McKlnley delegates, and
against Mosely, or antl-McKInley men.
Former Governor of Cuba Challenged
General Borrero to a Duel.
Madrid, June 10. A sensational re
port Is current to the effect that a se
rious quarrel has taken place between
Generals Martinet Campos and Borre
ro In regard to the Cuban campaign
and General Campos' conduct of affairs
In the Island.
General Campos took offense at cer
tain remarks of General Borrero. and
sent a second to demand satisfaction.
The report gained credence In circles
which gave it an appearance of au
thenticity, and the absence of both
generals from the senate since the
quarrel also gives strength to the sen
sation. Thi minister of war Is said to have
Intervened to smooth matters over,
This, however, is denied at the war of
fice, as Is also the fact of the alterca

lines Campos, the predecessor of the
ent captain general of Cuba. Weyler.
s nd General Borrero, the argument be
came so animated that the discussion
developed Into a hot quarrel, and a
duel was arranged. "
The matter was conducted with the
greatest secrecy, but In some manner
the authorities received Information
of the Intended duel between the gen
erals a few minutes before they were
to meet on the Primo Rivera.
The captain general of Madrid pro
ceeded with all haste to the spot, ar
riving Just as the principals were be
ing placed In position, and It was only
with the greatest difficulty that he suc
ceeded in stopping the affair before
either of the combatants were wound

were finally disarmed and sent to their
respective residences under arrest v
Washington, June 10. The senate
has disposed ot the last of the appro

morrow as the time for final adjourn
ment After being in session through
out the day, a night session was decid
ed upon, in order to adjust many minor
differences between the two houses. -
A number of bills were passed during
the day, including an Important bill
giving trial by Jury and other safe
guards. In prosecution for contempt of
court. The measure has been vigorous
ly urged by labor interests, particular
ly railroad employes. It Is the result
of agitation resulting from the Impris
onment of Eugene V. Debs, for con
tempt of en injunction issued at the
time of the Chicago strike. The bill
as passed continues the power of sum
mary punishment when an offense Is
committed In the immediate presence
of the Judge, but in Indirect contempts,
such as the violation of an injunction,
the bill provides that the accused shall
be given a full heating with the oppor
tunity to summon witnesses and offer
An amendment was made by Cannon
giving the accused the right of trial
by Jury on application. In the case of
convictions an appeal Is provided to
the supreme court.
San Francisco, June 10. The steamer
Australia from Honolulu today, brings
confirmation of the Associated Press
story concerning the demand made by
Great Britain that Volney Ashford be
permitted to return to Hawaii. The
Dole government Is very much excited
over the report, but the president of
the little republic Is pursuing a conser
vative course in the matter.
There Is a likelihood of Hawaii call
ing upon the United States to extend
its good ofllces in the dispute. Ashford
was convicted by the military com
mission of misprison of treason.

Washington, June 10. An enormous
amount of business was transacted by
the bouse today in order to clear the

In front of the speaker's desk crowded
with members clamoring for recogni

Fifty-three bills and Joint resolutions
were passed, the most important of
which is probably the bill appropriat
ing 1200,000 for th. trans-Mlsslsslppt
exposition at Omaha. Allen, the wit
of the house, enlivened the day with
a humorous speech. This was the first
lime Allen's voice has been heard this
session, and he began by referring t
the "universal criticism" of his silence.
"I desire to say, however," said be,
"that there has been little at this ses-'
ston of congress to inspite a Christian
man to be loquacious, (laughter), and
I want to say further that I am not
the only statesman whose recent career
has been distinguished by his silence."
(Renewed laughter.)
Chairman Cannon, of the appropria
tions committee, made a gallant fight
to Induce the house to stand out
against the senate public buildings
Items in the sundry civil bill, but the
members outvoted him, 100 to 8S. Af
ter .the conference report on the Dis
trict of Columbia bill, containing Its
compromise on the sectarian charities
had been presented. Cannon precipitat
ed a heated discussion of the political
situation, in which Dockery and Ding
ley participated. The work ot the ses
sion was elaborately reviewed, criticis
ed and defended.
Cannon, in closing his remarks, said
that to sura' up all In a word, "No scan

higher than every before at a first ses

"I know we will have McKlnley, but
twice over, because it will be necessary
to have more to pay the mortgages
contemplated by the Republican par
ty's legislation."
' Dockery concluded by taunting the
majority with, its failure to act upon
