Of all the secrets held by the flotsam and Jetsam of many years, none Is stranger than that of the beeswax of the Oregon beaches. Long before the white man came to the great North west by ship or prairie-schooner, vessels from the Orient had skirted the coast Bits of wreckage havtold the story of Chinese Junks &one gj pieces on the shore, but the most eurfi;s evidence of this Eastern traffic has been found on the Oregon coast, south of the Colum bia River. Mr. Clarke gives an ac count of this treasure-trove In his "Pio neer Days." When Lewis and Clark made their famous expedition, they learned that the native Indians of Oregon had for many years found lumps of beeswax on the sandy shores. Beeswax Is practically Indestructible In water, but these pieces had pounded In the surf until they were black and battered almost beyond recognition. In 1814 Henry, engaged in the fur trade, wrote an account of finding masses of this wax. The pieces were scatered over a wide stretch of coast, and were now covered, now uncovered by the blowing sand. Some of the lumps were softened Into all shapes and sizes by the beat of the sun, and bleach ed nearly white. Others were square, and stamped with strange characters. In 1805 a Mr. Howell, walking on the beach, saw something exposed In the Band. It proved to be the corner of some large squares of beeswax weigh ing several tons. Many smaller blocks were also found, all bearing the stamp ed letters I II S. Besides these squares of wax quantities of large candles were discovered. In looking up the matter, it was learned that as far back as rec ords ran these tapers had been found with the wax on the shore. Of course the explanation may be that some Oriental ship bearing church supplies for a mission farther south went to pieces on the Oregon coast many, many years ago; but what should a ship bound for Mexico or South America be doing so far north, and what use could any mission have for such an enormous quantity of wax 7 HE DIED FIGHTDfG. How Prince ! oula Napoleon Waj Killed by the Zolua. How Prince Louis Napoleon was killed by the Zulus June 1. 1S7U, Is told graphically In tho book by Sir Evelyn Wood, who took part In that war. The little party which the prince accompa nied was surprised and attacked. Sir Evelyn writes: "The Zulus in pursuit ran first after the two white soldiers who were on the flanks, three or four men, headed by Labanga, followtug the prince. Ills horse had JuiuihhI Just as he was mounting, and his sword fell out of Its scabbard. He was very ac tive and was vaulting on his horse In motion when the wallet on the front of the saddle broke away, and he fell to the ground, being at this time only sixty yards behind the (British) fugi tives. There were seven men who ac tually fought the prince. When Langa lebele, pursuing the fugitives, first saw Labanga. ho was running away from the prince, who was rushing at him. Labanga, crouching In the grass, threw an assagai at hi in. The first assagai stuck In the prince's thigh, and, with drawing It froai tho wound, he kept his foes at bay for some minutes. In the native's words: 'He fought like a Hon. Ho fired two shots, but without effect, and I threw an assagai at him, which struck hint, as I said at the time, but I always allowed Labanga's claim to have killed him, for his assagai hit the prince In the left shoulder, a mortal wound.' Man Is always more of a lover of women than of woman. CONFLICT IS FEARED Violence Seims Certain In 3tn Francisco labor War. MILITARY f ORCLS ARE PREPARED United Railways May Huddle Undsr Ea&U's Wing by Asking for Federal Injunction. Fan Francisco, May 7. An air of nervous expectancy hangs over the city of Han Francisco. It is such a quiet, suppressed sentiment as benpi-aks ap proaching conflict. The situation is serious with a gravity born of uncer tainty. The United Railroads pro poses to resume the operation of its lines with non-nnlon men. Two thou sand union men are rn strike, and, while neither side will discuss the ri sibility of violence, the situation baa been carefully canvassed by the olice, the militia and the officers of the regu lar army. There is a settled feeling in the city that the cars cannot be operated with out violence of some ttort. Wherever the subject was discussed, the opinion waa expressed that trouble was Inevita ble. While still hoping that no out break will attend the running of the cars, the authorities have made prepa rations for any emergency. General Funston arrived last night and assumed command of the department of Califor nia. The militia armories are being guarded and the police force has been given emergency orders. The situation is complicated by the telephone strike and the vast industrial army made idle by the ironworkers' s:ke. Among the .mions the feeling prevails that the defeat of the carmen would be the heaviest blow the unions could receive. Reports are current that, if trouble attends the attempt of Mr. Calhoun to run the cars, he will force the issue up on the government, either through a request for a receiver or through injunc tion proceedings in the Federal court.
