London. The Japanese tvarmin
istcr will go to Port Arthur, prob
ably to ascertain lh basis of the
persistent rumors that the Japan
ese solJiers killed civilians after
capturing the city.
Tillamook Light Clublftd.
Astoria, Or. Tho late storm
disabled the Tillamook light. The
mad waves threw up pieces of rock,
breaking the plate glass around
the lantern, damaging the lenses,
etc. At one time six feet of water
was in the siren room and four feet
in the keeper's quarters.
Chang, d Iti FitM-aity.
Washington. It is understood
that Representative Springer will
father the Carlisle scheme and in
troduce it in the house over his
own name. There will bo no im
portant changes made in the bill.
The New York financiers favor the
scheme since they learned that the
silver Democrats oppose it. The
bill will probably pass the house
before the holidays.
Senator Suboii 1 Tiawt.
Washington. Senator Dubois,
of Idaho, said today international
agreement meant agreement with
England. That country established
the single gold standard in 1316,
and in 1873 she succeeded in get
ting the world to agree to it. She
is the great creditor nation and all
the debts are made payable in gold.
To expect England to go into an
international agreement for the re
monetization of silver would be
like proposing for a man having
$100,000 to' go into a pool with
half a dozen other men, each hav
ing $10,000, with the understand
ing that when the pool was made
up all were to divide equally.

Washington.. There was a
heavy drain on the treasury today.
The enormous sura of 14,870,000

York. The gold balance in the
treasury is now reduced to $96,3 11,

San Francisco. The steamer
Gaelic brings the information
direct from Tokio that Japan is
jealous of foreign meditation iu the
settlement of her war with China.
The Japanese consider it essential
to Japan's national supremacy to
compel China to admit her over
whelming defeat and humiliation.
Tha United State! Will Not Inratigata.
Washington. The United States
will take no part in the investiga
tion of the Armenian outrages.
Finding that the limitations pro
posed by Cleveland upon the func

vent his joint action with the Old
World powers, the sultan withdrew
his invitation to the United States
to appoint a commissioner, conse

Vancouver, Wash. Representative-elect
Mills, of this county, is
under arrest, charged with the
embezzlement of school funds
while acting as director of school
district No. 51. Mr. Mills' asso
ciate director, P. Wolf, is also ar
rested. The district has recently
built a new school house, and the
specific charge against Messrs.
Mills and Wolf is that they in
directly drew pay for work done
on the building.
Am Attempted Train Bobbery.
Grants Pass, Or. Two masked
men attempted to board the north
bound overland train at Woodville,
a small station 9 miles from here,
but missed their footing and
failed. About four miles out from
Woodville three masked men swung
a rea ugni across me
track ahead of the train, and the
engineer, enepecting something
wrong, pulled tho trottlo wide open
and left ibem behind. It was
clearly an attempt to hold up the

Carbale'i Plan to be Kaaommendad
Washington. The house bank
ing and currency committee have
decided by the close vote of 9 to 8
to recommend the adoption of
Secretary Carlisle's currency plan.
Johnson of Ohio and Ellis of Ken
tucky voted with the republican
members against reporting the
plan. The committee has been in
session for a week hearing leading
bankers and officials on the pro
Xi-Treamry Howe Found Onilty-
Jacksonville, Or. The jury
returned a verdict of guilty in the
case of Ex-Treasury Howe, whose
case has just been tried here, on
change of venue from Klamath
county. The case was contested
with great energy ou both sides
and has excited a good deal of in
terest. Counsel for defense asked
until Monday next in which to file
a motion for a new trial.

Buffalo, N. Y. - Col. D. S.
Alexander, ex-United States at
torney for Northern New York, is
authority for the statement that
Ex-President Harrison will not be
a candidate for re-election. While
on a Western tour CoL Alexander
visited the ex-president, who
talked freely on the presidential
outlook for 1896, and says most
emphatically that he is not a can
didate for renomination. General
Harrison thinks "the treasury de
partment will get very tired of
maintaining a gold standard by
paying interest on bonds issued
for the purchase of gold."
Banker BtJohn'i Opinion.
Washington. President St.-
John, of the New York Mercantile
bank, iu his testimony before the
currency committee said: "Con
gress fiddles with the bank notes
while the burning issue is our
primary money coin." He charac
terized the repeal of the Sherman
act last year and closing of the
mint to silver as "the worlds
blind experiment" in money. It
severed the last link that coupled
silver to its crippled right of money
in the western world. Mr. St. John
declared it was the duty of congress
to stop experimenting and go back
to the Hamilton-Jeflerson coinage
system to restore bimetalism, inde
pendent of other nations. In con
clusion Mr. StJohn declared that
'if this respect of mony is to be
preserved, the rich will be made
richer and the poor poorer as the
achievement of our statute law."

Denver. John Burns, English
member of parliament, re-
narked to Delegate Wersman:
'You delegates have been asses."
The American Federation of Labor
takes this as an insult. Delegate
Pomeroy made this pointed reply
to Burns: "If an American were
to eo to England would he escape
the duck pond if he criticised the
personal habits and institutions of
your people as yoa have freely
done during your stay in America?"
