TERRORISTS WRfcCK HOUSE.
Bomb Kills 27 Persons and Wounds
Over 30 Others.
S!. Fete rs iiug, Aug. 20. Twenty
eight petsons are dead and more than
SO wounded as the result of a dastardly
attempt yesterday afternoon to assass
inate Premier Stolypin with a bomb
while he was holding a public reception
at his country house on Aptekassy is

wounded cn the face and neck by flying
Among the dead are the premier's

neered the outrage, two were killed
with their victims, while the third,
who acted as coachman for the party,
and the fourth, who remained inside
the carriage, were badly wounded.
Whether the assassins who entered
the crowded reception hall threw the
bomb or accidentally dropped it prob
ably will never be known, as all the
immediate eye witnesses were killed.
The tremendous force of the explosion
absolutely blew out the front of the
premier's residence, and carried away
the ceilings above and the floors be
neath and the walls of the adjoining
People were literally blown to pieces.
Thoee who were not killed instantly
were horribly mangled and the others
were prostrate by the shock. The pre

stepped ins;de his stuiy at the rear of
the salon tosptak to Prince Shakovsky.
Although he was but slightly injured,
he is completely prostrated by the ca

was indescribable. Bodies were so torn

RAILWAY GIANTS CLASH,
$25,000,000 Cash and St. Paul Road
is the Prize at Stake.
Chicago, Aug. 27. A special to the
Tribune from New York says:
A financial battle, with $23,000,000
in cash and the control of the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway system
is on between J. Pierpont Morgan and
E. II Harriman.
In the battle are involved twice as
many millions ot aoiiars ana inree
times as many thousands of miles of
railroads as were represented in the
famons fight for the possession of the
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, which
resulted in the memorable Northern
Pacific corner, when the price of that
stock was rushed up to $1,000 a share
and a panic in Wall street followed.
The opposing forces consist of J. P
Morgan. James J. Hill and their
friends, foreign capitalists, on one side,
and E. H. Harriman, practical owner
of the Union Pacific-Southern Pacific
roads, with Sir William an Home,
Sir Thomas Sbaughnessy, as controllers
of the vast Canadian Pacific syetern,
with their friends, on the other. Re
maining neutral for the time being, but
inclined to throw their weight to Har
riman, are James H. Smith and Wil
liam Rockefeller, as principal stock
holders in the St. Paul.
On the outcome of the war depends
whether the 6t. Paul road is to be ex
tended to the coast, for which purpose
a new $25,000,000 stock issue was
voted, in a northerly direction, and so
seriously injure the traffic of the Great
Northern and Northern Pacific systems,
or southerly, to impair the future pro
fits of the Union and Southern Pacific
Early this summer there was a mys
tenons bunching of threa Pacinc coast
lines stock. Before Harriman or Hill
could discover wno were the purchas
ers, the Canadian Pacific had obtained
sufficient interest in the road to wield
the balance of power.
Guerrera Gets Ammunition.
Fan Juan de Mart'ntz, Aug. 27. A
correspondent of the Associated Press
who rode out from here today says
tnat when Pmo Guerrera left San Luis,
he took from that town 40,000 rounds
of ammunition he found there. He also
secured 28.000 rounds in San Juan de
Martinez. It is reported that Colonel
Julian Eretancourt, the Havana Lib
era), who is second in command of
Guererra's force, was slightly wounded
in the engagement near San Luis.

j OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
MILKING MACHINE TESTS.
Demonstration of Their Value To Be
Given at State Fair.
Salem Milking machines in opera
tion will be one of the principal fea
tures of the dairy department at the
State fair, which opens here September
10. (aimers and dairymen have al
ways been interested in the subject of
milking machines and their interest as
become particularly strong in the last
few years when dairying in this state
has been hampered by the difficulty in
securing milkers. Mend) not like to
milk and will not take work of that
kind if they can get anything else at
the same wages. But milking machin
ery lias not generally been found to be
successful and dairymen have been
compelled to depend upon such labor
as they could get.
There are some manufacturers of
milking machines who think the,, have
contrived apparatus that will extract
the lacteal fluid from the patient or im
patient cow, whether she be a hard
milker or an eaty one. Machines so
simple that a boy can run them, are al
leged to be ready for the farmer who
doesn't like tc milk and cannot hire
somebody else to do it for him. Ma
chines adjustable for tall cows or short
ones, kickers and nonkickers, Jerseys,
Holsteins or scrubs, await the doubting
owner of the dairy herd. It's all a
question of proof and the state board of
agriculture proposes to give the manu
facturers of milking machines the op
portunity to prove by actual demon
There will be plenty of cows at the
fair and the owners ot machines will be
called npon twice a day to do the milk
ing. If the machines work to the sat
isfaction of the farmers, there will be
some busines in milking machines.
If they don't work, the cows and their
owners will give the machine manufac
turer the laugh.
But whether the machines work or
don't work, the state board of agricul
ture will give the farmers a chance to
nee them tried, and beyond doubt there
will be ranchers around the stock pens
twice a day to see the demonstration
and the fun, if any of the cows object
to the unaccustomed treatment.
New Hospital at Chemawa.
Chemawa Plans and specifications
have been received at the Indian school
here for a new brick $16,000 hospital,
for which bids will be received and the
contract awarded September 13. The
building is to be supplied with the lat
est improved methods of heating and
ventilation, and will be equipped with
the beBt sanitary appliances. It will
be steam heated and electric lighted
The main building will be two etories,
80x33, and will have two wings, 31x24
In connection with the new hospital
the school management will continue
and extend the open air sanitarium
which it has been running since spring
with excellent results.
Oregon Flax Good.
Salem George erbeke, son ot one
of the wealthiest linen manufaturers of
Ghent, Belgium, and a member of the
firm of Morel & Verbeke, is in Salem to
make a scientific investigation into the
possibilities for the development of the
flax and linen industries of Oregon
He said: I have been able to ainve
at only one conclusion as a result of the
limited investigations which I have
made during my stay here, and that is
that Oregon certainly produces a very
high grade of flax, equal to any that I
have ever seen, and, in my judgment,
it is capable of being manufactured in
to the choicest of linen fabrics."
Burned Trees Have Value.
Albany Experienced lumbermen
state that activity on the part of mill
men will save much of the timber in
the burnt district up the North San
tiam river. The fire as it rushes
through th green timber burns those
parts of the trees which are loaded with
pitch, and leaves the wood bnt little
charred. All the limbs and foliage are
devoured, and the pitchy bark is burn
ed through, but the part that is valua
ble for lumber is injured but little.
This charred timber may be utilized
for milling purposes at any time within
four years after the fire as a rule.
State Will Profit.
Salem That the sale of the Oregon
Central wagoi. road lands to Minnesota
and North Dakota investors means
much to the settlement of Southeastern
Oregon is the belief of W. F. Dunlap,
of the state printing office, who was
formerly a newspaper man in North
Dakota. He bases his opinion on bis
knowledge of the work these men have
done in North Dakota in the way of
colonizing large tracts of land purchas
ed in that state.
Clackamas Farmers Are Pleased.
Oregon City Gottfried Moehnke, a
farmer at Shubel, reports a yield of 74
bushels per acre from a five-acre field
of oats. An exceptionally good yield
of wheat and oats, both in qnality and
quantity, is reported by Clackamas
county farmers as far as the harvest has
progressed. A yield of 70 bushelB of
oats per acre is also reported from the
farm of George Lazelle near New Era.
Cuts Heavy Crop of Oatt.
La Grande James Halley harvested
10 acres of oats last week, which will
average 80 bushels. The straw was so
heavy and thick that the binder could
cut only half a swath at a time, and it
took two days to cut the grain. This
should not be considered bad lor a
VALLEY VALUES AREfRISING.
Land Purchased Last Year Increases
About 28 Per Cent.
Salem That the big profits in Ore
gou real estate are not made in Port
land alone, or in city property alone
is indicated by an Investment made less
than a year ago by A. M. Ia rollette
a Mission bottom farmei. I.a Follette
bought a DO acre farm last fall at $02.50
an acre, paying all that his neighbors
thought the place worth. He bought
it more for the investment than for us,
for he already has all the farm land he
needs. A few days ago he was offered
$80 an acre for the same (arm, or an
increase of $17.60 an acre.
The total investment Wis $!i,(i25,
and the amount offered a year later was
$7,200, or an increase of $1,675, or
about 28 per cent. Mr. I.a Follette
thinks it will advance still further am
yield him a much larger prollt, so he
refused the offer. He thinks the build
ing of electric roads through the valley
will raise farm land values in the next
Physician to Indians.
Chemawa Dr. F. K. Slater, of Sa
lera, has been appointed physician for
the Omaha and Winnebago Indians of
Nebraska, and will leave for his post
soon. Dr. Slater was the physician at
the Chemawa Indian school for nearly
a year. He became interested in the
Indian work and requested a perma
nent appointment from the com mis
sioner of Indian affairs. Dr. Slater
gave excellent satisfaction at the Indian
school here in treating the diseases in
cident to Indians.
Nevada Capitalists Buying.
Lakeview Dr. W. II. II. Patterson,
a Keno, Nev , capitalist, and Mr. Norn
ardy, a Tonopah mineowuer, arrived
here reently and went to the Coyote
Hills strike. Both gentlemen are ex
tensive minenwners in the Tonopah
mining district. They have also mves
tigated the Pine creek mines, 15 miles
from I.akeview, and it is stated on good
authority that Dr Patterson paid $10,-
000 for a tenth interest in a group of
Wheat Record at Westen.
Weston Weston claims the largest
crop threshed in Oregon, and perhaps
in the Northwest, in proportion to the
acreage seeded. J. M. Bannister had
exactly 5,642 sacks from 208 acred, one
mile west of town, an average of 63
bushels an acre, at 140 pounds to the
sack. The wheat is Dale Glory, which
has been grown to a considerable extent
around Helix but has just been intro
duced in the Weston country.
Coquille Mills Are Busy.
Coquille The sawmills in this vi
cinity are running overtime, which is
practically the first time they have rnn
even full time since the San Francisco
earthquake. Many of them would run
night and day if hands could be ob
tained. All kinds of laborers are
scarce, especially carpenters.

Havana, Aug. 24. Pino Guerrera,

an Ameilran arms manufacturing com
pany four rapid-lire guns and that
these pieces be manned by ex-iuembers
of the artillery branch of the American
army now here. If these guns prove
to be effective, four or more addition!
guns will be ordered, and it is expected
that experienced gunners will be pro
cured in the United Htaes to man them.
The United States has noi been asked
to do anything in the premises.
The subject of American intervention
is not much discussed here, and is re
uarded as a remote possibility, there
being general confidence that the gov
eminent w ill be able to restore order in
a short time.
The killing of the insurrectionary

Public opinion appears to vary sc
cording to locality, from enthusiastic
adherence to the government to open
rebellion. In this city the general at

been nothing which could be fairly de

in defense of the government.
NOT ENOUGH MONEY FOR ALL
Deficiency In Appropriations for Ma
neuvers of State Troops.
Washington, Aug. 24. Altera month
of hard work, Assistant Secretary Oliv
er, of the War department, concluded
that he ha I llnally made a satisfactory
adjustment of the many difficulties in
apportioning the appropriation of $700,'
000 for pay of the militia at the in a
neuvers in different camps throughout
the country, but it appears that all i
not satislactory . In some cases more
state troops than had been given in the
schedule were sent into the ramps and
more expense was thus added. This
caused a deficit in the allotment of
funds, especially in the matter of pay
for the state tr.tops. The pay depart
merit of the army decided to pay the
troops as long as the funds lasted, those
who came last going unpaid. Another
adjustment may be made after the
camps have finished their work, as
some camps may not use all the money
allotted to them and the funds can be
used to make up the deficit elsewhere.
It is ponsible that congress will be 'ask
ed to make an appropriation to cover
the deficit and the state troops pain
