C A S T R O IS D E P O R T E D . French Government Refuses Him A sy lum in Martinique. Fort De France, April 12.—Cipriano Castro, ex-president of Venezuela, was expelled Saturday from the island of Martinique by the French government. He protested to the last against his ex pulsion, but his protests were In vain. He is now on board the French line steamship Versailles, bound for St. Nazaire. Official notice was served on Castro of the decision of the French govern ment that he must leave the island within nine hours from the receipt of such notice, and that the commissary of police at Fort de France had been charged with the execution of the order. The ex-president railed against the French government and the local au thorities, denouncing them for forcing upon him alternative of deportation or imprisonment for six months. He de clared that he would not budge and that it would be necessary to take him on board the steamer on a stretcher. This the commissary of police, who finally entered Castro’s room with an escort of gendarmes, prepared to do, but Castro’s lawyer took steps to find the chief justice, andjat the very last moment the governor and public prose cutor decided to have another medical examination made. Accordingly a medical commission composed of Drs. Bouvier, Costet and Barbe, proceeded to the examination in order to establish definitely if Castro’s health were such that he could make the voyage. The consultation of the physicians lasted more than half an hour, and they agreed that the life of the ex-president would not be jeopardized by his remov al to the steamer and the return voyage across the ocean. A D O P T H A R R IM A N P L A N . New Y o rk Hospitals Will Buy Their Supplies T h ro u gh Bureau. New York, April 12.—Acting upon the suggestion of W. V. S. Thorne, purchasing agent of the Union Pacific, Southern Pacific and other Harriman lines, the 45 hospitals of New York holding membership in the hospital conference are to be brought under a central supply purchasing department, which will buy all the drugs, foods, furnishings, fuel and instruments not furnishedjindividually by each of the 45 institutions. The proposal to apply Harriman methods to the purchasing departments of the hospitas in question was made by Mr. Thorne at a meeting of the con ference held here at the Academy of Medicine. Mr. Thorne showed that in $1,688,- 647 spent for supplies last year by the 45 institutions a saving of $161,318 could be effected at a cost of $24,000. This $24,000 would be used for the maintenance of a central purchasing department, in charge of a head buyer at a salary of $7,500 a year, and with a staff of clerks and and office of its own. _________ R E V O L U T IO N T H R E A T E N E D . France is Hotbed of Discontent on Part o f Laboring C lass. Paris, April 12.—“ You will see the streets of Paris running with blood ’ere long,” solemnly prohpesied a lead ing Royalist today. Royalists are inclined to exaggerate the seriousness of conditions in the French capital, but it certainly is true that not since the days of General Bou langer has revolution been so openly and so freely talked of as it is today. The outlook would be more alarming, however, if the revolutionists knew just what they want, or whom they should choose for a leader. In the eyes of the public the head and front of the present agitation is “ Citizen Pataud,” chief of the electricians’ union. His name sends fear into hearts of the Bourgeois shopkeepers and other employers. "Premier Clemenceau and others pre tend to smile at the great success of their meeting in the hippodrome,” said Pataud today, in discussing the situa tion, “ but they will laugh out of the wrong corner of their mouths if they think this movement is not serious. This isn’t the end. The dance is just about to begin; the orchestra is merely tuning up.”_____________ S trik e rs W reck Factories. Meru, France, April 12.—The strike of the buttonmakers of Meru has en tered upon a critical phase. All the departmental authorities are hurrying here and reinforcements of cavalry and gendarmes are coming by every train. Many arrests have been made. Nego tiations have been futile and disorders broke out last night that recalled the revolution. Agitators came down from Paris and harangued the mob, which stormed and wrecked four button fac tories and practically destroyed the residences of the employers. Lenox is Sw ept by Fire. Lenox, Mass., April 12.—The central portion of Lenox was swept by fire early Sunday morning. The firemen were apparently powerless, and help was summoned from Pittsfield, Lee and other places. The fire was under control at 3:15 o’clock. One body, that of Edward C. Ventres, an elec trician. was recovered from the ruins. Four other persons, including the wife and daughter of Ventres, are missing. The loss was estimated at between $300,000 and $400,000. The principal business buildings were destroyed. Night Riders Break Out. Nashville, Tenn., April 12.—Night rider depredations in the Humphreys county peanut growing industry have caused the authorities to appeal to Gov ernor Patterson for military protection. Tonight a formal request was made. An attempt to liberate certain prison ers at Waverly under indictment for nightriding outrages is feared. One of the offenses was the whipping of a justice of the peace so mercilessly that he begged that he be killed. A sk Denm ark to B a r C astro. Copenhagen, April 12.—The United States has approached Denmark in the matter of forbidding Cipriano Castro to remain in the Danish West Indian island of St. Thomas in case the for mer president of Venezuela should pro ceed there from Martinique. A defi nite answer is expected tomorrow. NEWS ITEMS OF GENERAL INTEREST FROM THE STATE OF OREGON W IL L M A R K E T G R A N IT E . W IL L Q U IT H O P S .

Moving Eastward with increasing velocity, the storm which has done so much damage in the Central and Lake states today swept over New England, and a tale of woe has poured into this city from shipping interests as a result. The gale has varied in velocity from 50 to over 92 miles an hour, and shipping up and down the coast has sought shelter. From off the Rhode island coast it is reported that three barges with their crews have been blown out to sea, and staunch ocean-going tugs have started to their relief.

In the path swept by the storm wires are just being restored to work ing order, and tales of loss of life and suffering are rapidly coming in. Throughout Eastern Canada the gale was particularly severe, and from On tario it is reported that many houses were unroofed. A schoolhouse at Guelph was demolished and many per sons injured. In Rochester, N. Y., the gale ac quired a velocity of 58 miles an hour, and one man was killed. At Wheel ing, W. Va., one man was killed and three seriously injured. The oil country near Pittsburg suf fered great damage in the gale, and over 2,000 derricks over the’wells were blown down. The loss to oil men will total at least $100,000. Houses, barns and fences throughout the country were wrecked. FRANGE WILL SHIP CASTRO To Be Returned to Europe on first Steamer Touching. E X T E N D “ D R Y '’ T E R R IT O R Y .
