Corvai.uh, Or. Judge Fuller
ton convened the circuit cour at 2
p. in. today for tho purpose of con
sidering the matter of the confirm
ation ot the recent sale of the Ore
gon Pacific to Bonner & Hammond.
A number . of leading attorneys

terests of creditors and argued

sale. Judge Fullerton has taken
the case under advisement until

North Yakima. Yesterday af
ternoon John Pell stabbed his half
brother, Jell Hargus, in the side

grew out of Hargus wanting to
make love to Pell's step-daughter.

Washington. The president
submitted to the senate today a
full report of the Bluefields affair.
The administration has practically
succeeded in settling one of the
most annoyinf international ques
tions that has perplexed this gov
ernment for 50 years. The contro
versy resulted from efforts of the
United States to open a shorter
sea route to California, through
Nicaragua. Great Britain has
maintained a protectorate over the
east coast of Nicaragua since 1850
until now, and the Mosquito coast
has been a bono of contention be
tween the two countries, but, as
shown in the report, the Mosquitos
havo finally been completely in
corporated ujdcr Niearagnan sov
ereignity, and Great Britain has
surrendered all claims and recog
nized the "paramount sovereignity
of tho government of Nicaragua."

Sacramento. The, intenso ex
citement prevailing in this city
over the recent murder of the Web
bers has ended in the organization
of a vigilance committee ot 100
men. These men havo formed
themselves into a close secret or
der, and they are very reticent as
to what they intend doing. The
preliminary meeting was open to
the public and was held in the old
pavilion. Many prominent citi
zens addressed the meeting. Rev.
Chas. Banks, pastor of the Baptist
church, of which the Webbers were
members, said: ''There is not a
man's house nor a man's life safe
in this city today, and we must
change this condition and change
it now." B. S. Laweon, a pioneer,
said that these things would not
have been allowed in 1849, and
that they must not be allowed
now, etc.

China and Japan Cloeely Watohed.
Vienna. A leading journal,
which publishes ofiicial news from
every capital in Europe, had this
paragraph today: "The French,
Enclish and llussian ministers at
Tokio have been instructed to keep
themselves closely informed of the
daily course of negotiations be
tween China apd Japan. These
three powers cannot permit their
interests to be violated nor allow
European influence to be elbowed
out of eastern Asia, so that Japan
may monopolize the Chinese trade.
Their squadrons in ' Eastern waters
are sufficiently itrong to give ef
fect to their wishes and those of the
United States."

lawful occupations, tho memorial
says, aro frequently imperilled.
The memorial shows that in Asiatic
Turkey there is a permanent force
of nearly 250 American mission

Armenian property. In the east
ern Turkey mission there are 50
adult missionaries who have under
their charge 42 churches, 1G9

the hostility of Turkish officials,
who have encouraged attacks upon

tions throughout Georgia show!
heavy democratic gains every
where. Many counties which went
strongly populist at the two last

Mexican pieces, were returned. Mr.
Campbell had sent a large sum of
money on the evening train to
Union, payment for a shipment of
flour, which accouuted for the

military degredation and banish
ment, was publicly degraded on
Jan. 5 in front of the military
school of this city. He was stripped

Ou Tariff Schedule Camas Trouble.
Washington. Austria's protest
against the American discriminat
ing duty on sugar, supplementing,
as it does, similar action by Ger
many, is giving the administration
grave concern. An evidence of
this was a conference today, last
ing about an hour, between Secre
tary Gresham, Secretary Carlisle
and Attorney General Olney. The
Austrian minister undertakes to
6how that imposition of the differ
ential duty of one-tenth of ono
cent per pound is in violation of

tween the United States and A us
