The body of a man came ashore at
Agate Beach, near Newport,
Tuesday. From the fact that wreck­
age o f fruit, etc, similar to that lost
from the steamer Bear, has been wash­

body was found, it is thought that the
body may be one of the wreck victims.

The Zeitschrift Fuer Frauenstimm-

gan at The Hague, has sent the fo l­
lowing greeting to the women of
France: “ W e feel, think and suffer
like you, and swear that after this ca­
tastrophic war the women o f all na­
tions shall work unitedly to prevent
forever its recurrence.”
Carranza authorities have released
all prisoners confined in jails in Sonora
towns. A dozen prisoners were re­
leased from the Nogales, Sonora, jail,
among them a Mexican held on three
separate charges of murder. It is be­
lieved the men are being released upon
a promise to join the Mexican army
and because o f the difficulty in obtain­
ing food fo r them.
The United States consulate at Tor-
reon, Mexico, was demolished June 18
by a mob o f 3000 civilians, led by the
mayor o f the city and a Carranza army
band, according to American refugees
arriving at Eagle Pass, Tex., late
Tuesday. The populace was attending
a bullfight, according to the refugees,
when the de facto government troops
forced them to join in an anti-Am eri­
can demonstration.
A large force o f Russian cavalry,

issued by the Russian war office. Re­

Higher Prices for Beans Are
Named in California Advices
Portland— There was some talk o f
an 11-cent bean market Wednesday,
but jobbers were adverse to putting
out such an extrem e quotation, not­
withstanding thé further advance in
the South. In fact, Portland jobbing
prices are below a parity with Califor­
nia. It is believed there are enough
beans here to meet the restricted re­
quirements during the remainder o f
the old-crop year, but i f the supply is
exhausted, it cannot be replenished at
existing prices. While the main fac­
tor in the strength o f the market is
the government demand, there is little
doubt that speculation has played an
important part in bulling prices in the
South. The available supply o f white
beans in California is limited, and ap­
pears to have passed into strong specu­
lative hands.
Advices received from San Fran­
cisco said small whites were practi­
cally cleaned up at shipping points at
91 cents and very few I.ady Washing­
tons were le ft at 9 cents. There was
a good demand fo r Limas, which were
advancing in sympathy with the high
prices o f white beans.
Baker Wool Not Sold.
Baker, Or.— Out o f 148,000 pounds
o f wool, practically all fine, offered
this week in Baker at the annual wool
sale, only 23,000 pounds were sold, al­
though other deals which may be
closed later were pending. High bids
on fine wool ranged from 23 cents to
25 cents, while for 4000 pounds o f
coarse wool from the Sels-Ashford
ranch, in Grant county, a high bid o f
28 cents was received.
Isador Kosh-
land, of Portland, was the bidder.
W ith the exception o f 10,000 pounds
sold by W alter Steiger, o f Baker, at
25 cents, to John Glorieux, o f Woon­
socket, R. I., all the clips offered were
from Grant county.
The only other
clip sold was that o f J. C. Moore, who
sold to Mr. Glorieux at 24 cents.
Mrs. Kenneth McRae, o f Prairie
City, had the largest clip for sale, 615,-
000 pounds. It is understood that a
private bid made tops the price being
offered openly. Mascall & Ringsmyer,
o f Dayville, were offered 23 cents for
their 40,000-pound clip by Mr. Kosh-
land, while C. H. Green, o f Portland,
offered to take over the 16,000 pounds
o f fine wool from the Sels-Ashford
ranch at 231 cents.

Hood R iver — The Apple Growers’

Congress Drops Provision to Aid
Dependent Families of Guardsmen
Washington, D. C.— An agreement
under which the army draft resoultion
w ill be put through, without any pro­
vision for re lie f o f dependent families
of National guardsmen drafted into
the Federal service, was reached late
Wednesday by the house and senate
leaders. A conference report elim i­
nating entirely the re lie f proposal on
which the conferees had split was ap­
proved by the house without opposition
just before adjournment and is expect­
ed to be accepted by the senate.
In submitting the conference report
to the house. Chairman Hay, o f the

ferees had consented to sacrifice their
$1,000,000 re lie f proposal only after
Secretary Barker had telephoned to the
capitol that immediate passage o f the
resolution in some form was impera­
Mr. Hay announced he would intro­
duce the appropriation section as a
separate bill and Speaker Clarke said
he would entertain a motion Monday
for passage o f the measure under a
suspension o f rules.
As finally agreed to, the resolution
authorizes the President to use as Fed­
eral soldiers all members o f the Na­
tional guard w illin g to take the re­
quired oath for Fedreal service and
permits consolidation o f scattered and
incomplete guard units.
