TUBE SYSTEM FOR BAY CITY
Mails Can Then Be Handled With
San Francisco, Aug. 21. The pnen
matte tube system, which is use.! with
great success in Eastern cities, will at
a near date be Ailing its important
functions in the local post office. Ev
erything is ready for the installation of
the system, and all that deters the
postal authorities from giving this city
that improvement is the proper loca
tion at the ferries.
The government forbids the placing
of the system in other than buildings
which will insure permanency. The
present buil-'ing at the ferries occupied
by ihe post office is regarded as a tem
porary structure, and the only location
suitable will be in the Ferry building.
The harbor commissioners have Wen
applied to for space and if they grant
the request the work will begin imme
diately. About 90 per cent of the local mail
passes through the Ferry ostoffiec, and
when that station, with its force of
clerks, is transferred to the new build
ing at Seventh and Mission, the postal
socrvice of this city is going to be
greatlv hamphered. The business com
munity of this city as well as others
were considerably interested over the
matter, and the agitation resulted in
the department at Washington giving
it serious attention.
The tube is eight inches in the clear,
and each carrier will hold 450 letters.
At a test recently made at Chicago,
350,000 letters were sent through in
one hour. San Francisco mail is about
300,000 letters per day, and with the
tule svstem local mail could lie handled
with great efficiency. The majority of
the mail will be worked and sorted at
the main postoitice, and sent through
the tube to the Ferry station, where it
will be pouched for trains and steam
ers. All incoming mail will oe sent
directly to the main postorlice.
THERE ARE OTHERS.
Bennington Is Not the Only Warship
With Weak Boilers.
Washington, Aug. 21. The findings
of the board of inquiry that investigat
ed the Bennington disaster are expect
ed to be given out today. Snice the
boilers of the gunboat exploded, killing
and wounding so many of the crew,
an investigation has been going on to
determine the condition of engines and
boilers on other ships of the navy.
The results have been surprising.
Some discoveries were made, and some
rather unpleasant ones. Several vessels
have been ordered to the navy yard for
repairs to their engine room equipment.
The names of these vessels are withheld
at the Navy department. It may be
said, though, on the beet authority,
that the conditions which have so far
been revealed will in all probability
result in some decided changes of the
naval regulations realting to the duties
of deck and engine room officers.
The announcement of the ships whose
boilers have been discovered to be de
fective and of the changes to be made
in the regulations may be made long
after the Bennington figures have been
published. Secretary Bonnaparte is a
believer in legitimate publicity and
thinks the department should take the
initiative in furnishing to the press
any information that should properly
be made public.
NEW DOCK ON THE SOUND.
Navy Department Prefers It There In
stead of Mare Island.
Washington, Aug. 21. It is believed
from the attitude of an official of the
Saw denartment that congress will be
- j 1 - j
asked next winter to make an appropri
ation for a new drydock on Puget
sound. The naval authorities are
unanimous in declaring that there is
immediate need for better docking fa
cilities on the Pacific coast, and are
equally unanimous in believing it un
wise to build such a dock at trie Mare
Island navv yard, because of the bad
If another dock is authorized, it is
preferred that it be located at Bremer
ton, on the sou M. The only thing to
check this recommendation will be ad
verse action bv the cabinet, which may
deem it inadequate, in view of the con
dition of the treasury, to seek money
for the new dock at tins time.
Indemnity or More Fighting.
London, Aug. 21. Baron Hayashi,
the Japanese minister to Great Britain,
said to the Associated Press today: "If
the Russian government does not in
struct its plenipotentiaries to concede
the indemnity clause, the war will go
on. mis seems to De me oniy clause
not agreed to in principle, but ample
compensation must be made to Japan
in one form or another. When tne
Japanese entered the conference they
made the statement that they were not
'bluffiing.' It will be found in the end
that they have not been."
Cloudburst Kills Four.
Joplin, Mo., Aug. 21. Four people
were drowned and property valued at
$200,000 was destroyed as the result of
a cloudburst today at Southwest City,
in the extreme southern portion of
Missouri. C. O. Kelsey, a photo
grapher, was drowned when the two
story building which he occupied was
swept away and dashed to pieces against
a tree. Ned Smith and two other per
sons, whose names are not known, were
drowned while trying to rescue Kelsey.

Prevailing View That War In Far
East Will Continue.
JAPAN ASKED TO MODIFY TERMS
Pressure Being Exerted at Toklo by
President Roosevelt and
Portsmouth, N. H., Aug. 19. Black
pessimism reigns at Portsmouth. The
prevailing view is that the fate of the
peace conferencce is already settled,
that it has ended in failure, and that
all that now remains is for the plenipo
tentiaries to meet on Tuesday, to which
day they adjourned yesterday afternoon
upon completing the consideration of
the Japanese terms, sign the final pro
tocol, go through the conventions and
bid each other farewell. In other
words, that the meeting Tuesday will
be what diplomacy calls the "seance
Hut there is still room for hope of a
compromise, .eilner i resident Koose-
vlt nor the powers will see the chance
of peace shipwrecked without a flanl
effort, and that pressure is being exert
ed, eepecialy at Tokio, to induce Japan
to moderate her terms, is beyond ques
tion. Just what is Wing done or is to
tie done has not transpired. King Ed
ward is understood to he now lending a
helping hand and the financiers of the
world are known to be exerting all their
energies. At Tokio ami St. Petersburg
the final issue will be decided.
FIRE DEALS DEATH.
State Room Inn Destroyed and Two
Portland, Aug. 19. Fire originating
at 2:20 o'clock this morning in the
State Room inn, on Thurman, between
Twenty-sixth and Twenty-seventh
streets, one block from the main en
trance to the Lewis and Clark exposi
tion, completely destroyed the structure
and the adjoining residence of At
torney Van Dusen, and incinerated two
or more occupants of the inn.
Special Policeman J. If. Roy turned
in the alarm and endeavored to arouse
occupants of the building and bring as
sistance to them. The structure was
frame, two stories in height, built to
serve the purpose of a temporary hotel
during the exposition period, and the
fire gained such headway and fastened
so greedily upon the timbers that the
occupants had small chance of escape
unless awakened about the time the
flames were first seen breaking out of
the roof and walls.
The dead: Unknown man, body
badly charred; boy, having one leg am
putated, also badly charred.
The injured: Mrs. Ida Harper, burn
ed and bruised; Miss Anna Lubert,
burned and bruised; Mrs. Van Zant,
burned about face and injured by jump
ing from veranda; Miss Van Zant,
burned about face; A. C. Collander,
cut about head, burned and bruised;
Joe Stubbs, severely burned.
CONGER TO CHINA.
Will Do What He Can to Stop Boy
cott on America.
Oyster Bay, Aug. 19. Edwin II.
Conger, of Iowa, formerly United
States minister to China, and since last
April the American ambassador to
Mexico, will return to China in the
near future, if present plans are carried
into effect. His mission will be of a
diplomatic nature, the specific purpose
of which is to allay, if possible, the
agitation aroused in parts of the Chin
ese empire against the use by Chinese
of American products.
Mr. JConger, who has been scarcely
more than three months at his new
post in the City of Mexico, was sum
moned to the United States to confer
with the president about the Chinese
boycott of American goods. He hail a
long conference with tiie president to
Corporations Own Water.
Salt Lake City, Aug. 19. The de
cision of the Interior department that
the control of the waters of the Lintah
Indian reservation is vested in the
state of Utah will have an important
bearing upon the rights of settlers who
will make homestead entries under the
privileges acquired in the drawing now
in progress at Provo. Practically all
the water flowing over and upon these
lands has been filed upon by private
parties and corporations under the
laws of Utah. Three corporations have
Forest Fires Near Dawson.
Dawson, Y. T., Aug. 19. Forest
fires are running riot in every direc
tion near Dawson. On nearly every
creek there are big fires. From the
dome opposite Dawson seven big fires
were visible yesterday in different di
rections. One of the most noticeable
ones was on the big dome to the south
of the city. The fire has been raging
several days, and has swept from the
opposite side of the divide to this side
and is now playing down the hill Bide.
Seven Children at a Birth.
Honolulu, Aug. 19. A dispatch bv
wireless telegraph from 1 1 ilo says that
Ifana, the Hawaiian wife of Kailua, a
Chinese, gave birth to one child on
last Thursday, two on Sunday, one on
Monday, two on Tuesday morning and
one on Tuesday night. All are dead.
Peace Conference Where It Was at
Opening of Session.
Portsmouth, N. 11., Aug. 18. The
crisis in the peace conference has been
reached and pessimism ' is again the
note. But the darkest hour is just be
fore the dawn, and there Is still hope.
Piedictions of a final rupture today
certainly will not be justified unless
Baron Komura figuratively picks up
his hat and announces that it is useless
to proceed further. Mr. Witte, at
least, will not Ins precipitate. At to
day's session, after article 2 the limi
tation of Russia's naval power In tho
Far East and article 12 fishing rights
on the Russian littoral are disponed
of, he will favor an adjournment un
til Monday to hear the last word from
The pessimism last night is based on
the fact that no progress was made yes
terday. The exchange of views at the
morning session on article 9 remuner
ation for the cost of the war showed
at once that the plenipotentiaries were
as (ar apart as the poles, and it was
passed over. Article 10 the surrend
er of the interned Russian warships
was also passed, not, in the opinion of
one of the plenipotentiaries when the
Associated Press saw him last night,
liecause it could not have been arrang
ed, but because, with the shadow of
the two main points in dispute hanging
over the conference, both sides were
cautious and preferred to postpone it
to the end. Article 2 limitation of
sea power is also adjustable after
modification, and article 12 will pres
ent no difficulties. So that now the
situation is practically where it was
when Mr. Witle last Saturday present
ed the Russian reply with its non-Hs-sutnus
to articles 6 and 8 indemnity
FOR DEEPER COLUMBIA.
Trans-Mississippi Congress Realizes
Needs of Coast.
Portland, Aug. 18. Need of lilieral
appropriations from congress for the
Columbia river is obvious to the Trans
Mississippi Commercial congress, and
when Major W. C. Ijuigtitt, United
States engineer, spoke yesterday lie hue
that body on the lienefits which ade
quate appropriations would bring and
pointed out the results the United
States engineers could attain, the con
gress manilcsteil its approval with
hearty applause. A resolution, calling
on the national government to hasten
improvement of the waterway will tie
urged by the Washington, Oregon and
Idaho delegations in the congress and
no doubt will be adopted.
Leaders of the congress in the last
two days have frequently remarked that
the further impruvmenet of the Co
lumbia river is the moat important
river and harbor work before the gov
ernment on the Pacific coast, and one
of the most important in the United
States, and they say this whether they
come from Texas, where Galveston and
Houston n.ed appropriations, or from
Louisiana, where New Orleans requires
a deeper Mississippi and a more exten
sive levee system is needed, or from
Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and the Da
kotaa, where the Mitsouri river is in
need of letter chanel, or from the Up
per Mississippi region, which desires a
better waterway to St. Louis.
TARIFF ON WHEAT REDUCED
Biggest Cut Is On the Rate to the
Port of Shanghai.
Tacoma, Wash., Aug. 18. Effective
at once the tariff on wheat between
Puget Sound orts and .the regular
ports in the Orient has been reduced
by the Oriental line steamship compa
nies from $5 to $4 per ton of 2,000
pounds, and to Shanghai the rate has
been reduced from $7.50 to $4.50 per
The announcement of the reduction
was made at the local offices of the
Great Northern railway company today
and it is understood that the rate has
been agreed upon by all of the wheat
carrying lines plying between Puget
Sound and the Orient. The ports to
which the $4 rate applies are Yoko
hama, Kobe, Nagasaki and Hongkong.
The higher rate of $4.50 is applied to
Shanghai because of the difficulty ex
perienced in reaching that port.
Bounty Frauds in Montana.
Helena, Mont., Aug. 18. County
Attorney Lyndes, of Roseburg county,
is here conferring with state officials
about alleged bounty frauds preferred
against ex-County Clerk C. W. Bailey,
L. R. Terrett, J. W. Selvidge and Har
ry Wright, all of Forsythe, who have
been arrested and released on bail
pending a preliminary tearing, Sep
tember 4, on the charge of defrauding
the state out of a large turn of money,
said to be about $8,000. It is alleged
they marketed fraudulent bounty war
rants for wild animals in It 01.
Nearly 300,000 Miles.
Washington, Aug. 18. The annual
report of the Interstate Commerce com
mission, giving the railroad statistics
for the year 1904, shows that there
were at the end of that year 297,073
miles of railroad in the United States.
The number of railway corporators in
cluded in the report was 2,104. In the
course of the year railway companies
owning over 500 miles were reorganiz
ed, merged, etc. The mileage operated
by receivers was 1312 miles.
Soldiers Desert by Wholesale.
St. Paul, Aug. 18. A wholesale de
sertion of privates from Fort Suelling
was reported today, when it was an
nounced that about 50 privates had
quietly left the post without permis
sion, because they did not wish to work
on the new rifle range.
OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
FIRE WARDEN IS WIDE AWAKE
Arrests Farmers for Burning Slash
ing Without a License.
Oregon City F. Hendricks, deputy
fire warden, discovered J. R. Hunt, A.
M. Lull and D. O. l.eavens, of Willam
ette, burning slashing for which no
permit had been procured of the county
clerk. The men apHarel before the
acting deputy district attorney ami
pleaded ignorance of the amended law
with the provisions of which the peo
ple of this county are not acquainted.
Agreeing to immediately obtain the
required permit the men were not pros
ecuted. Mr. Hendricks is patrolling the en
tire count) and posting notices warning
settlers against the miscellaneous start
ing of fires. In order to get around
the objectionable feature of the law
which requires a permit to be obtained
ti'ii days prior to the time the lire is to
te started, the same to be bin mil only
three days, a great many funnels are
renewing their applications for per
mits every three days, thus giving
them practically indefinite time in
which to wait for favorable weather.
Otherwise, the weather during the
three days covered in the original ap
plication on which the permit Is
granted being unfavorable, the settler
must experience a further delay of at
least ten days intervening between the
issuance of the permit and the starting
of the file authorizes! thereby.
Sugar Beets Don't Hurt Land.
I Grande Al ( iood, a farmer who
lives two miles north of I-u (irande,
has threshed two acres of oats w hich
yielded 202 bushels. The seed for this
ground was les than a sack of oats.
It was also sown in alfalfa this spring,
and Mr. Good expects to get a couple
of tons of hay from this same ground
besides the crop of oats. Previous to
this season the ground was planted in
sugar boots, and the above result
shows how much beet raising injures
the soil for other crops.
Union Forests Aflame.
Ij (irande Word comes from Elgin
that forest fires are raging in that vi
cinity, and that a large force of men is
at work trying to check the tire and to
protect and save property. The most
laniaging fires are in the neighborhood
north of Elgin. The sawmills lie
longing to the First National bank,
Galloway Bros, and the Elgin Lumber
company are in danger and the mill
hands are working night and day to
protect the mills and to arrest the pro
gress of the flames. Every available
man has been pressed into service.
Farmers Fight Fire.
Grants Pass Forest fires have
reached the farming districts of West
ern Josephine county, and are djing
much damage in the vicinity of the
Rymer farm and the big apple orchard
of Eisman Bros. In order to keep the
flames from the orchards, fields and
buil .ngs, the people of that district,
men and women, are fighting fire day
and night. For the past three days
and nights entire families have been
working heroically at all hours to sub.
due the flames.
Weston Normal Closed.
Pendleton It is now deflntiely set
tled that there will be no normal school
at Weston during the coming winter,
as it has been found irnMissible to raise
money sufficient to defray the expenses
until an appropriation bill can lie voted
next June. President French has been
very hopeful of being able to secure
sufficient money to pay the running ex
penses of the institution until that
time, but he has now abandoned the
State Lose Grain by Fire.
Salem The state of Oregon lost 1 ,
(100 bushels of new grain in a threshing
machine fire at the penitentiary farm
the first of the week. The Morris
threshing outfit, from Albany, had just
finisnod threshing the grain when a
spark from the engine caught in the
separator and the flames Hp rend ho rap
idly that no grain could be saved. The
loss to the state is about $1,200 and to
Morris about $900.
One Woman Hunter In Union.
La (irande Two hundred hunters'
licenses have been issued by the county
clerk. The only woman to take out a
license is Mrs. George Ackles, of this
city. The oldest applicant for a license
is L. M. Fulton, of Elgin, aged 78
years, and the youngest licensed nim
rod is Miles Borth, of Union, who is
13 years old.
'Vote for Long School Term.
Cottage Grove A special scool meet
ing was held here last week for the
purpose of voting on a 10-mill tax to
run the school nine months, and other
incidental expenses. A large crowd
was present and many spirited argu
ments were presented. The tax was
voted by ten majority.
Crop Turning Out Well.
La Grande Threshing is well under
way and the yield is far better than
was expected. The hot weather cut the
spring grain some, but notwithstanding
the crop in general will be better than
for the past two seasons.
New Oregon Postmasters.
Washington These Oregon postmas
ters have been appointed: Mayville,
F. J. Parson, Vice Ella N. Angell, re
signed; McKee, Harry L. Shaner, vice
6. D. Ebner, resigned.
MACHINERY FOR ST. HELENS
European Capital Secured to Explore
R. O. Lange, who recently relumed
from Europe, where he disposed of a
large block of stock for the St. I Men
Mining company, has gone to Denver
to purchase machinery for the St. Hel
ens mines. The machinery will bo
thoroughly modern in all details, ami
will be Installed just as soon as It ar
rives The holdings of the company arn
considered valuable, and workings on a
much larger scale than heretofore will
he begun at once. Two shifts will bo
maintained, and water power In plenty
can he obtained close to the mines.
Surface work has shown a strong vein
which yields high copper values in all
the adits and shallow shafts sunk.
Some of these copper samples run front
12 to 20 per cent in the red metal and
carry some gold.
The vein has been established as a
permanent fissure and will no doubt bo
found with high grade ore st greater
depth. Tunneling will begin ul once to
get at the ore at great depth.
Fined for Illegal Liquor Selling.
Oregon City Mr. and Mrs. A. Corri
gan and Mr. Cunningham, proprietors)
of a saloon at Estacada. were found
guilty of selling liquor without a mu
nicipal license and were fined $:(() each.
Cunningham paid bis line, but ('orri
gau and wife will appeal. The defend,
ants contend that under the provisions
of a license obtained from the County
court last April they were regularly
licensed to sell liquors, but the Esta
cada city charter provides that the
state law shall ma apply in the licens
ing of saloons and the traffic In liquor.
This provision of the charter In came
operative January III , and the city'a
attorneys held that the license granted
by Clackamas county was void.
Fire Loss Is Heavy.
(irants Pass Property losses by fire
in Southern Oregon have been very
heavy the past ten days, due to the ex
cessive dryness of the season. Tho
rainfall fur last w inter and this summer
has been less than for several years
past, and the least spark at once starts
a fire. In almost every valley of tho
Itogtic river basin forest fires are raging
and much timber is being destroyed.
The farmers are losing much fencing
and scvcial biuldiugs have burned.
Fires Near Mount Jefferson.
Albany Fires in the timlier east of
Detroit, at the foot of Mount Jefferson,,
are spreading and doing great damage.
A considerable tract of timlier is already
burned and the flames are spreading
eastward. A large force of men is fight
ing the fire, but making little headway
against it, owing to the high wind usu
ally blowing up the Santiam canyon.
Get Bridge Contract.
