conditions much improved a lino the
heavy snow storm of two weeks ago, and

In valleys where stock could not bo

Hoquiam, Wash., April 20. Com
missioner K. Davis recently went to
Wcstport and mndo an examination of
tho Westport wharf. Ho finds the en
tiro piling o( tho wharf practically des
troyed by a small bug resembling a
water flen, Tho piling was put In

and will lio replaced for safety.
Mr. Davis found tho bug hard at
work. Ho cuts oil tho piles nt low
wuter mntk. so that 18-Inch piling Is
found to bo within a fow Inches ot bo
tug entirely cut off. Cedar, which
usually Is proof against Insects, has no
terror for tho bug, and ho cuts this
faster than flr.
It well driven piling Is to last but
five years, It moans somo method must

to scientists as thu llniluolno, and Is
said to lo very destructive to wood of

St. Petersburg, April 18. A tele

0:16 o'clock this morning to midday
tho Japanese (loot, in two divisions,
bombarded tho fortress and the town
alternately from tho I.Iao Tshan prom

The Russian squadron, including tho

batteries also participated.
The losses on land were seven Chi

The Kantian warships sustained no

Senate Now Looks With Little Favor Up
on an Investigation.
Washington, April 18. Prcs dent
Roosevelt had an important confeicnco
today with Senators Aldrich, Spooner
and Penrose, the last named being the
chairman of the committee of post
offices nud postroads. Tho conference
related to tho proposed investigation by
a senate) committee ot tho affairs of thu
postofTico department. All parties to it
were reticent as to tho dotails of the in
torview, but enough is known about it
to indicate that an Inquiry Into the
postal affairs io not so llkley to bo au
thorized aa It waa a day ot two ago.
The subject Is being considered confi
dentially by tho icnate leaders, and a
definite decision, one way or tho other,
may bo reached soon. Objections to n
congressional Investigation havo been
suggested which may Imluco tlio senate
to abandon tho proposition altogether.
A searchlnK Investigation Into the
affairs ot the Washington and Now
York iKwtofficea la now being con
ducted. These inquiries were Insti
tuted by tho president himself, and
they aro being mado vory thorough.
In addition to these inquiries, Messrs.
Coiitad and llonnpnrto, under general
instructions from tho president, aio
still pursuing their investigation into
postolllco department matters.

Precedent Against Intervention for Wire
less Telegraph Company.
Washington, April 10. Ono of tho
principal wireless telegraph companies
hns filed nt tho state department an
cncrgotlc protest against tho decree of
Admiral Alexleff that newspaper cor
respondents In tho Far East during the
war shall bo treated aa spies. Tho
stflto department has taken tho protest
under consideration, but following the
almost unbroken practice It probably
will decline to take any action on a
hypothetical caoo. If an American cit
izen Is arrested by the Russian officials
the state department Immediately will
lay down a lino of policy to meet this
novel departure In International law.
It is realized that nowspaper corres
pondents using wireless telegraphy in
the neighborhood of naval operations
might unwittingly give Information ot
great valuo to the enemy, whose ves
sels, being also equipped with wireless
tolcorahy, might readily take up mes
sages sent to a shore station.
The state department is loath to es
tablish a precedent by protest that
inlsllt hereafter embarrass our narn
naval commadners. The matter is
said by a distinguished military officer
hero to emphasize the pressing ned for
an international agreement fixing the
exact status of newspaper correspond
ents In case ot war.

Oregon Delegation Desires 'OS Fair
Board Bo Named at Once
Wash in ton, April 10. Copies of the
Lewis and Clark exposition bill, as it
waa signed by the president, were de
livered from tho printing office today
and distributed among the various gov
ernment departments. The Orrgon
senators, early tills week, expect to see
cabinet officials and urge- the early ap
pointment of the govemmont board
which is to havo supervision of the gov
ernment exhibit. Until this board ia
appointed and makes an estimate of the
amount of space that will be needed for
the government exhibits and for exhib
Itajrom Alaska, the Philippines, Ha
waii and the Orient, the supervising
architect will bo unable to proceed w)th
ho preparation of plana for buildings.
For this reason, it Is desired thai the
board shall be named without delay.
The senators also expect to see tho
president and lay before him the list of
countriea which It ia desired shall bo in
vltcd by this government, throuab tho
state department, to participate In tho
exposition. When this la accomp
lished, there is nothing left for the
Oregon delegation to do in furtherance
ot tho exposition so far aa the govern
ment is concerned.
DON'T KILL LAWS.
China's Action on T caty WIU Have
No Blfect en Them.
Washington, April 10. Attorvney
General Knox has handed to the presi
dent his opinion regarding fho validity
of tho Chinese exclusion law. While
the opinion haa not been mado public,
it ia known the attorney general holds
in effect that tho denunciation ot tho
treaty by China does not operate to nul
lify the existing laws, and that the ex
clusion can bo enforced as rigidly bore
after aa under tho treaty.
In its effect tho exclusion law la more
drastic than tho treaty. While the
treaty ia In force; tho points of differ
ence between tho law and treaty aro de
cided in cacordance with tho terms ot
tho latter. It la tho hope of tho Chi-
neso government that a now treaty will
be negotiated which will provo more
favorablo to Chi neso Immigrants that
la tho present treaty. Indeed, such a
treaty la now being considered.

Japan Will Have Submarine Boats.
London, April 10. While it Ib au
thoritatively stated that thu Japanese
have no submarine navy nt tho present
tlmo, nnd therefore it ia impossible that
the Russian battleship Petropavlovsk
could have been sunk by a boat ot thia
class, it ia understtood that tho Japan
ese arsenals and navy yards are working
overt imo on two or more submarine
boats, which will bo ready before the
RuBslan Baltic squadron reaches the
