THEIR USEFULNESS GONE.
Administration Would Like to See Or
egon's Congressmen Resign.
Washington, Nov. (. It can he stat
ed on reliable authority that the Roose
velt administration is in sympathy
with the movement now on foot in Ore
gon to induce Senator Mitchell and
Representatives Iletmannand William
son to resign their seats in congress.
Ollicials of the administration share
the In-lief universally held in Wash
ington that Oregon should not be de
nied representation in congress; it is
acknowledged that Mitchell, Hermann
and Williamson will never again be
able to render their state effective ser
vices; they certainly cannot do so un
der prevailing conditions. It being
apparent that not ono of these men
could ptssibly be in position to perform
active duty as a member of the Fifty
ninth congress, the administration
thinks it is incumbent upon them all
For obvious reasons, no member of
the eoadm mist rit ion can be quoted on
this matter, but, if the president's
views and those of his various cabinet
officers could be printed, the people of
Oregon would have no doubt as to the
position of the administration. So far
the administration has done nothing to
force Mitchell, Hermann or William
son out of congress, though some offi
cials of the department of Justice have
been urging the attorney general to
ask for an advancement of the Mitchell
case on the docket of the United States
Supreme court. If this is done, and
the Supreme court sustains the findings
of the lower court, Mitchell will be
deprived of his seat some time this
winter and Governor Chamberlain will
have an opportunity to appoint his suc
cessor to serve until March 4, 11'07.
WORK PLEASES TAFT.
Secretary Sees Great Improvement at
Panama, Nov. 6. Secretary of War
Taft held a long conference this morn
ing with Chief Engineer Stevens. To
day Secretary Taft and Mr. Stevens w ill
go over the works at Empire City and
Culebra cut and afterwards will go by
boat from Mindi to Colon, examining
at the same time the harbor improve
ments at Cristobal.
Secretary Taft informs the Associa ed
Press that he was very much pleased
with the situation here, which he says
has greatly changed for the better since
his last trip. He thought from what
he bad already seen that the work on
the canal was progressing satisfactorily
and was now efficiently organized. He
said he was happy to notice that the
spirit of the men on the canal had im
proved, and that the condition of five
or six months ago did not exist.
The secretary said the sanitary con
ditions are excellent and believed that
by continuing the present methods yel
low fever could be controlled. He
thought the efficiency of the laborers
was not as high as it should be, but he
said that he contemplated making no
change until the men had been given a
fair trial. The department of Lommis
saries, where the men could get proper
food, he added, would raise their effi
EFFECT IN FATHERLAND.
People in Berlin Fear Russian Revo
lution Will Touch Germany.
Berlin, Nov. 6. Many people in
Berlin are saying that Russia's success
ful revolution may have far reaching
results for the fatherland. Germany,
they say, will be completely isolated
among nations when the Russian dem
ocracy tomes off victorious, if the kai
ser resists the craving for greater po
litical liberty. The situation is deemed
all the more serious because pan
Slavist ideas leading to war over the
Austrian and Balkan questions may get
the upper hand in Russia, when the
democracy has complete power. The
czar's government has hitherto been
able to keep them down.
German Socialists cherish no illusion
to the effecct that the rulers of Ger
many will change their methods as a
result of the events in Russia. Ilerr
Bebel is preparing for a hard fight with
a view to defending the fatherland's
main democratic institutions, the gen
eral franchise for the reichstag.
Reds May Proclaim Republic.
St. Petersburg. Nov. 6. Rumors are
current throughout the city that the
revolutionists have decided to pro
claim a federated republic. One of
the principal forces with which the
government has to deal just at present
is the "black gangs" organized by the
police to oppose the Intellectuals. They
are especially strong in Moscow, where
the Metropolitan Vladimir is one of
their leading supporters. These organ
izations have established mock courts
of justice, which have condemned the
Odessa Like Military Camp.
Odessa, Nov. 6. The pillaging here
has been largely stopped, thanks to the
intervention of the troops and the local
militia, formed largely of students, but
the streets are unsafe for all, except
sanitary officers and Sisters of Charity.
The city presents the aspect of a mili
tary camp. The student militia is
pursuing the rioters, who are defend
ing themselves with revolvers. Ihe
students are taking their captives to
Prairie Fire Burnt Stock.
Bonesteel, S. D., Nov. 6. Reports
have reached this place from Gregory
that a prairie fire, driven by a terrific
wind from the northwest, has been rag
ing all day in Tripp county, west of
this place. An area of over 50 miles
has been burned, and a great deal of
hay and stock has been destroyed.
OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST, j
MAY BE DISSOLVED.
Five Thousand Oregon Incorporations
Salem Two months hence 5,000 Or
egon corporations will bo dissolved by
proclamation of the governor unless
thev comply with the terms of the cor
poration license law Indore that time
expires. Many of these concerns hold
real property or negotiable paper, and
all will lose their power of transacting
business from the date of dissolution.
More than that, any person w ho shall
exercise or attempt to exercise the cor
porate powers after dissolution lias
leen proclaimed w ill be liable to a tine
of $1,000 and imprisonment for one
year. The law is plain and compre
hensive in its terms, and w ill operate
to suspend the powers of delinquent
corporations unless they comply with
These 5,000 corporations referred to
are concerns which have not in any
manner complied with the corporation
license tax law. There are 10,000 cor
porations listed on the books of the
secretary of state, and of these 3,000
have complied with the law. Some
have already g ne out of existence, but
there remains on the list a large num
ber of corporations which, though not
doing a very active business, hold
property rights which they must pro
tect. Because the corporations have
not been doing an active business and
are merely holding property, the offi
cers of the company have neglected to
comply with the law, and thereby re
tain tlieir corporate powers. When
they have been dissolved by proclama
tion of the governor, they w ill no long
er have power to execute a deed, col
lect a debt or enforce any right in the
courts of the state.
Defines Rights of Water Company.
Salem Attorney General Crawford,
in response to a request from Secretary
Brown, of the State Land board, holds
that the Deschutes Irrigation & Power
company has no right to charge interest
on lands sold to settlers previous to
the "date of reclamation," as fixed by
the Carey desert land act; that is, the
date of approval by the secretary of the
interior of the work done by the com
pany to reclaim the land. This ap
proval is to be given when the state
engineer certifies that the land has
been reclaimed, which, in this case,
has not been done, and w ill not be
done for some time yet.
Alfalfa Lands Are Soaked.
Milton Now that the fruit and veg
etable crops have been harvested there
will be no further use for water for ir
rigating purposes on lands under culti
vation. The water is flowing down the
ditches to the Hudson bay district,
where it is used to good advantage on
the alfalfa lands for winter irrigation,
which proves beneficial to the early
crop. The water overflowes the land,
which is thoroughly soaked, holding
the moisture until the crop gets a good
start in the spring. This system of
winter irrigation is recognized by the
alfalfa growers as an important feature
in this business.
Governor Refused to Sign.
Salem For the first time in the his
tory of Oregon, deeds to state lands
have been issued without the signature
of the governor. Governor Chamber
lain refused to sign the deeds conveying
10,000 acres of state school lands to
various holders of certificates of sale,
which certificates the Marion county
grand jury reported as having been
fraudulently obtained. Secretary of
State Dunbar and State Treasurer
Moore signed the deeds, and, in the
opinion of Attorney General Crawford,
these two signatu-es will be sufficient
to convey title.
Hop Farmers Not Alarmed.
Woodburn Hopgrowers in this sec
tion are not despondent over the reign
ing low prices, and believe that, if
they are financially able to hold on,
the tone of the market will be made
more encouraging in a few weeks.
Some think an effort is being made to
corner hops, and that in time there
will bs quite a jump upward in prices.
The first sales here this season have
been made, Johnson Bros, having sold
to Tooze & Vane 30 bales at cents,
and Collinson Bora. 60 bales to Wil
liam Brown, of Salem, at 8 cents.
Apple-Growing Profits Small.
Milton W. II. Wilmont, who owns
40 acres of land near Freewater, which
rias been partially set out to fruit, says
that apples are becoming an unsatisfac
tory crop on account of the uncertainty
of crop, which is a failure nearly every
alternate year; also because of the low
price arid expense in getting ready for
the market. He thinks seriously of
piling out has apples trees and setting
Italian prunes, cherries and peaces in
Sash and Door Factory.
Astoria Work has been commenced
on the construction of a new sash and
door factory for the Clatsop Mill com
any. The building is to be 30x200 feet
and one story high. The machinery
was ordered some weeks ago from Osh
kosh, Wis., and has already been ship
ped. It is expected to arrive so that
the factory can be in operation by the
first of thecominif year.
Irrigation in-Caker County.
Baker City Work has began on two
irrigation ditches in Baker county,
which, when completed, will carry
water from the Powder river and Birch
creek and will render productive thous
ands of acres near Baker City and
PUT ON THE ANXIOUS SEAT.
Eastern Oregon People Fearful of
Baker City A government agent has
been quiet ly looking over the timber
lands In Western Baker and Eastern
Grant counties and a great many
"prominent" cit ir.ens are on the un
easy scat. While it has been earnestly
maintained that there no land frauds
In Baker county, yet the questions ask
ed by this government official are said
to have fairly staitlcd the men being
questioned. The agent was very anxi
ous to learn of men who, according to
the records and tiles, own and are sup
posed to be living on certain claims,
hut who are absolutely unknown to the
neople living in that district, and no
trace of them can bo found. Nothing
whatever remains except the names on
the plats ami records.
It is well known that certain syndi
cates have secured control of nearly all
the valuable titnU-r Units of the Blue
mountain range, in Baker and Grant
counties. It was this condition of
affairs that was being investigated.
The timber region is largely in Grant
Mines in Baker Busy.
Baker City One hundred men are
now at work at the United Elkhorn
mines 10 miles west of this city and 50
teams are busy hauling concentrates
from the mill up the mountain to the
railroad station in Baker City, for ship
ment to the Sumpter smelter. There
is much excitement in the copper dis
trict east of Baker and many strangers
are hero looking over properties which
are rapidly coming on the market, in
view of the proposed railroad building
which will begin in a few months.
Government Testing Plant.
University of Oregon, Eugene Work
men are engaged in the construction of
a building on the campus to receive
the government stone and timber test
ing plant, for w hich the state of Oregon
appropriated $5,000 at the lust session
of the legislature. The building is lo
cated just north of the gymnasium and
a little to the rear of the Engineering
hall, is 30 feet wide and 40 feet long
and has solid foundations of cement
and masonry to support the heavy test
Work America's Sole Cobalt Mine.
Baker City The Standard mine,
Quartzburg district, 0 miles southwest
of here, is said to be the only produc
ing cobalt mine in America, and is one
of the wonders of the world. During
the past 18 months the property has
leen developed under Superintendent
N. F. Heath so that ore can now be
worked. Specifications for the mill
plant are in the hands of Engineer N.
C. Bonnevie, in Denver. Forty-two
men are at work, and excavations are
in progress. Bids for the plant close
Grants Past Schools Crowded.
Grants Pass The enrollment of the
Grants Pass schools has passed the 750
mark and the 17 rooms of the throe
city school buildings have their seating
capacity full, yet new scholars are en
tering each day, and what to do with
them is the problem City Superintend
ent Turner and the district board are
trying to solve. The board has de
cided to rent a room and hire another
teacher to relieve the crowded condi
tion of the school.

Washington, Nov. .1. The president

of America, a proclamation:
When, nearly thre; centuries' ago,
the first settlers came to the country
w hich has now become this great re
public, they faced not only hardship
and privation, but terrible risks to

We live in easier and moie plentiful
times than our forefathers, the men

rugged days, and yet the dangers to

at any previous time in our history. It
is eminently fitting that once a year
our people should set apart a day for
praise ami thanksgiving to the giver of
good, and, at the same time that they
express their thankfulness for the
abundant mercies received, should
manfully acknowledge their shortcom
ings and pledge themselves solemnly
and in good faith to strive to overcome
them. During the past year we have
been blessed w ith bountilut crops. Our
business prosperity has been great. No
other people has ever stood on as high
a level of wellbeing as ours now stands.
We are not threatened by foes from
without. The foes whom we should
pray to be delivered from are our pus

these there is always need that we

MINIDOKA SALES POSTPONED.
Lots in Towntitet Will Be Placed on
Market Next Spring.
Washington, Nov. 3. In refutation
of stories recently sent from Washing
ton, the Reclamation service today
makes the following announcement:
"The secretary of the Interior, act
ing upon suggestions of the governor
and prominent citizens of Idaho, an
liounces the postponement of sales of
lots in the new townsites of I ley hum
and Rupert, on the Minidoka project
The dates of sale, Novemper 14 and 21,
respectively, have been extensively ad
vertised, ami indications were that a
large attendance would be present
Owing to the lateness of the season,
the possibility of bad weather and the
lack of accommodations for visitors, it
was deemed wise to postpone the sale
until early next April. At that time
pleasant weather can be counted upon.
water will have been turned into the
new government canals, and more than
1,000 new settlers will have already es
tablished themselves on the land mid
will he clearing off sagebrush and put
ting in crops.
"The Minidoka tract today offers one
of the best object lessons in the West
of the wisdom of the reclamation law,
arid present conditions predicate that
one of the most prosperous and popu
lous agricultural communities in the
world will soon rise up from out of the
desert at this point in the Snake river
Culebra Cut is Flooded.
Panama, Nov. 3. Heavy rains last
week filled the Culebra cut with water
to the extent of stopping the work of
the steam shovels at the Cucaracha end
of the cut. To make up for the time
lost during the rainy season, Chief En
gineer Stevens will follow the example
of the Frenchmen, who, in the dry sea
son, employed a double force of men.
All freight traina of the Panama rail
road except one each way will hereafter
run at night, bo as to give the Canal
commission's train more time on the
main lino during the day.
Ito Will Rule Over Corea.
Tokio, Nov. 3. It is reported that
the Marquis Ito will leave for Corea
on November 5, as ambassador from
Japan. It is likely that the candidates
for the posts of Japanese ambassadors
at the European courts and at Wash
ington will he acred i ted before long. It
is rumored that Russian commissioners
will establish a head office for the
transportation of prisoners at Nagasaki.
Most of tho released men will lie sent
to Vladivostok, the others to Odessa.
More Fraud in Philadelphia.
Philadelphia, Nov. 3.- According to
a report made to Mayor Weaver today
by W. Bleddyn Powell, the city archi
tect, the city of Philadelphia has been
defrauded of thousands of dollars in
the construction of six pavilions for
consumptives on the ground of the
JETTY NEEDS CASH
Engineers Want $1,250,000 to
AVAILABLE HIND ALL EXPENDED
Only Enough to Flnlih Thit Year's.
Work No Economy In Piece
Washington, Nov. 2. Every dollar
appropriated for improving the mouth
of the Columbia river has been expend
ed, including tho $100,000 carried in
the last river and harbor bill. Thu
work which is in progress today is be
ing done on credit, Congress having
authorised the expenditure of $300,000
in excess of the amount a.'tualty appro
priated, it being assumed that this
amount will be made available at the
coming session. But the contracts now
in force expire December 3 1 , Ill0.r, and
on that date practically all of thin
$300,000 will have been consumed by
contracts, so that, when congress act
ually appropriates this money, it will
go to pay for work completed, and not
for work yet to be done.
Major l.auHlltt, on duty at the office,
of the chief of engineers, says that ap
proximately $ 1 ,".f)i,000 is necessary to
complete the jetty, w hich w ill extend it
seaward about one mi In beyond the
point where it now ends. He is satis
fied, as is the chief of engineers, that
the best results will be obtained by ap
propriating this full amount at tho
coming session, so that the jetly can
be rushed to completion next season, if
possible. Like (ieueral MacKcnxie, he
believe a suspension of work w ill menu
considerable tla'nagc, ei-pecinlly to the
tramway, a loss which would tie large
ly avoided if work could be resumed
The reasons w li v the money appro
priated and authorized at the last ses
sion was expended so rnpidly was to
demonstrate that the completed jetty
will increase the depth on the bar, to
give Portland the hem-lit id a deep
channel at the earliest possible day,
ami to open the way for an appropria
tion this winter sufficient to enahlu the.
engineers to complete the jetty.
NOT ALL PEACE.
Russia Continues Scenes of Riots,.
Terror and Bloodshed.
London, Nov. 2. Special dispatches
in this morning's local newspapers rep
resent the condition of affairs in Russia
as being extremely grave, especially
in the provinces. St. Petersburg, tho
dispatches ray, remains comparatively
ipiiet. Late last night thu streets id
that capital were putrid led by strong
forces of gendarmes ami Cossacks, and
no furthwr disorders have been re
ported. According to the St. Petersburg cor
respondent of the Daily Mail, the revo
lutionaries demand thu ehtablishment
of a r public, and as the result of this
demand thu strong arm of (ieneral
Trepoff has again been invoked. Thus,
says the correspondent, brutu force and
popular sentiment are again facing
each other. Even thu appointment of
(irand Duku Michael as military dic
tator, with (ieneral Trcpoff as his right,
ham), is discussed in official circles,
according to thu correspondent, who
adds that Into last night thu revolution
ary leaders advised the populace to re
frain from precipitating a conflict.
A dispatch to a news agency from
Odessa describes that city as having ex
perienced a dreadful day, the defence
less populace being at the mercy id a
howling and armed rabble of 50, ()()()
men, calling themselves loyalists and
led by disguised policemen and their
wretched dupes. The dispatch says:
"The Jews niadu a stout resistance,
and their successful bravery entailed
lamentable sacricfles. It is impossible
to ascertian the casualties, but rumor
puts the number of killed and wounded
as high as 2,000, many by b imbs,
which the mobs used wholesale."
Poland in Revolt.
Warsaw, Nov. 2. Poland is aroused
again, and another attempt is being
made to regain independence. Rioting
is now in progress in every section of
Russian Poland, and the people are
shooting down without mercy soldiers,
of the c.ar attempting to interfere with
their freedom of movement and speech.
Dozens of processions of Socialists and
anti-Russians have been passing through
the streets during the past 24 hours,
and all efforts on the part of the au
thorities to check them have so far
been without avail.
Root Recognizes Norway.
Washington, Nov. 2. It is learned
at the Slate department that this gov
ernment lias practically recognized tho
new government of Norway, although
the formalities have not been carried
out. This was done by the recognition
by Secretary Root of Mr. Hauge, as
charge d'affairs for Norway, and the
way is now open for diplomatic ex
changes between the two countries
whenever there is any necessity for
Canada's Greatest Lawyer.
Toronto, Out., Nov. 2. Christopher
Robinson, Canada's greatest constitu
tional lawyer, died last night of penu
inonia. In the Retiring sea arbitration
it was said that it was his presentation
of the case that brought a Canadian
