LAST BULWARK OF AUTOCRACY
Desperate Efforts Made to Stamp Out

St. Petersburg, July 1. TheRasslan
government, although It has been al
most paralysed by the terrible events
at Odessa and the news that tho sailors
At.'Llbau have also mutinied, Is making
desperate and even frantic efforts to
stamp out the flames of revolution be
fore they can spread to the army, which
is now the last bulwark of the autoc
racy. With Poland red with the spirit of
revolt, the Caucasus already almost in
a state ot civil war, agrarian uisoruersi,, . , , , ... .

The first act of the government after
dispatching Admiral Kruger's squadron
from Bebastopol was to summon the
Kniai Potemkine, whose mutineers
have now been Joined by the crews of
the torpedo boats which accompanied
it to Odessa, Jo surrender, under the
threat of firing upon and sinking the
vessel. This was followed by the dec
laration of martial law at Odessa and
Libau and the clothing of the military
commanders with plenary powers.
The newly formed council for imper
ial defense met last night nnder the
presidency of Grand Duke Nicholas,
and was in session long after midnight.
Beyond the fact that the temper ot
the army was 'considered at length,
nothing is known as to what occurred
in the council or regarding the decis
ions at which it arrived.
Great fear is expressed that many
regiments are honeycombed with sedi
tion, and there is grave doubt of their
loyalty should they be Milled upon to
fire on the revolutionists. Indeed the
most startling stories involving the un
reliability of the troops are being re
peated in St. Petersburg, but the truth
of many of them is more than ques
tionable. Dispatches received here from Odes
sa do not make the situation very clear.
Millions of dollars' worth of property,
including ships, has been burned or
otherwise destroyed. The city is ter

Great Britain to Blame for the Crisis
St. Petersburg, June 30. At Great
Britain's door tbe Novoe Vie my a lays
much of the responsibility for the
Frano-German crisis, saying she is pur
suing her traditional policy of enoursg
ing a conflict between her competitors
in order to profit thereby.
"Great Britain," the paper adds,
"pushed France Into the Moroccan ad
venture, sustaining M. Delcasse, the
foreign minister, in bis resistance to
"For decades Great Britain's hostil
ity has been directed against Ruisia.
At last she has succeeded in having an
other country, accomplish a task from
which she herself shrank. With Rus
sia no longer dangerous for the present,
all Great Britain's machinations were
set in motion against Germany, now
her chief competitor in Europe,"
The Novoe Vremya thinks it quite
conceivable that in case ot a conflict
Great Britain would aid France to the
extent of destroying the German fleet,
and that then, with both France and
Germany weakened, her supremacy
would be assured for another bait cen
tury. The Novoe Vremya, however,
believes that with Premier Rouvier in
charge of the negotiations with France
Great Britain's plans will be defeated,
and the Moroccan affair will be satis
Fast Train Goes Into Ditch.
Cleveland, July 1. A fast esat bound
passenger train on the Cleveland-Pittsburg
branch of the Pennsylvania road
was derailed and wrecked near Atwa
ter, O., today. At least one passenger
was killed, while a dozen others were
injured. Tbe train is one of the fastest
between Cleveland and Philadelphia,
making the run of 140 miles between
the two cities in three hours and 16
minutes. When the accident oc

Nicholas has been decided in favor
of peaco in the Far East on account of
the revolution In Poland. It has been
arranged with tho kaiser that in case

gntrlslons in Poland to the front.
Tho Toles, learning of this arrange
ment, made preparations to declare
their independence, with tho support
of tho Prussian Polish provinces of
Posen and Silesia. This has paralysed
to a certain extent tho kaiser's Moroc

A PATHETIC PLEA.
Judge Bennett Declares Prosecution
of Mitchell To Be a Plot
Portland, June 30. Another day
will send to the jury the case of Sena
tor Mitchell, who has been on tnal be
fore Judge De Haven in the United
States court. Yesterday morning when
court was convened Judge Bennett be
gan his argument in behalf ot the de
fense, a pies that was attractive in sen
timent, impressive in delievry, and
undoubtedly one of the greatest efforts
ever attempieu by tuts well-known
For more than three and a bait hours
Judge Bennett held the closest atten
tion of all within hearing. When he
closed at 3 :35 a blur of tears dimmed
the eyes of the senator and many ot his
closest friends were much affected.
Tbe attorney's theme throughout was
that Senator Mitchell was not guilty
of any wrongdoing, and that the de
fendant was the victim of a plot en
gineered by some unnamed persons be
hind tbe prosecution. It was a plot
brought to a culmination by United
States District Attorney Heney, whose
chief aim in the prosecution, according
to Mr. Bennett, was tbe glory of having
convicted a United States senator.
Skilfully counsel for the defense tamed
the construction that the prosecution
had placed upon the letters between
Senator Mitchell and his former law
partner, Judge Tanner He pictured
Tanner a a rat in a trap, who, when
once caught, was a willing tool in the
hand of Mr. Heney in order to save
his own son from proeecution.
Russian Army is Falling Back.
Gunshu Pass, Manchuria, June 30.
The most disquieting feature of the
stragetic situation of the Russian ar
mies is the persistence of the reports
that Japanese cavalry and light infan
try with field and machine guns are
working northward of Kirin and west
ot the Grand Trade route toward Bo
dune. The Japanese cavalry on the
west is under the command of Generals
Tamara and Akiama. General Linie-
vitch is not attempting seriously to
oppose the Japanese advance along tbe
front, but is drawing in his outpost
lines upon pressure.
Government Gives Up Cases.
Washington, June 30. Upon motion
of District Attorney Beach, the cases
against James T. Metcalf, Harry C.
Hallenbeck and Norma E. Metcalf, in
dicted for conspiracy to defraud tLe
government in connection with the con
tract for money-order blanks, were
nolle proesed In Criminal court today.
Mr. Beach announced that after a care
ful investigation of the evidence he
had decided to take no further steps
looking to the trial of these persons,
and asked that the indictments be dis
missed. Bubonic Plague at La Boca.

I OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
Ono Hundred Thousand Acres In Kla
math Subject to Ruling.
Salem Tho right of Klamath coun
ty to tax 100,000 acres of land owned
by the California A Oregon Land com
pany inside the Klamath Indian reser
vation has been sustained in an opinion
rendered by Attorney General Craw
ford. Tbe land in question was form
erly owned by tho Oregon Central Mil
itary Wagon Road company, having
been acquired by that company through
a Federal grant to the stato of Oregon
for aid in building a military road.
The owners of the land object ed to hav
ing it assessed and taxed, giving as a
reason for their position that the land
Is in the possession ot the Indians and
thereby of the United States, and is
thereby exempt from taxation.
In his opinion Attorney General
Crawford quotes from two decisions of
the United States Supreme court in
cases involving title to this land. In
each case the government was trying to
defeat the company's title, but in Iwth
cases the company won. The Supremo
court held that the company's title is
perfect ami beyond challenge. Author
ities are also cited to show that private
property inside an Indian reservation
is subject to tbe Jurisdiction ot the
state for the serving of process and for
taxation. In view ot these adjudica
tions upon the subject, the attorney
general holds that the conclusion is ir
resistible that the lands ant subject to
taxation the same as any other private
property. The opinion was rendered
in response to a request from County
Judge Baldwin, ot Klamath county.
HOOD RIVER CHERRY CROP.
Shipments Will Reach Between 6,000
and 7,000 Boxes.
Hood River The Hood River cherry
crop, which la now being gathered and
shipped, will amount to between 6,000
and 7,000 boxes. The crop is of good
quality. The greater part of the crop
has been bought up by a lallfornla
buyer, who Is paying 6c a pound for
the fruit. He is putting up a strictly
fancy pack, and is making shipments
for the New York market.
The berry crop is nearing the final
wind-up. Over 100,000 cases were
shipped from Hood River this season,
returning to the growers f 1-10,000.
Tbe yield exceeded the early estimates
by at least -(0 per cent. It is U'lievcd
by the shipping associations that as
much money would have liccri realized
with a crop of only 76,000 cases.
City Filet on Water.
Eugene A committee from the city
council drove to Ylda, -0 miles up the
McKenzie river last week to tile on the
waters of that river for power to oper
ate a municipal electric light plant. At
the city election in April, 1004, the
voters decidedthat the city should own
its electric light and water plants, and
the council is now preparing to secure
a site for the light plant. The Iran
chise of tbe Lane County Electric com
pany, which now supplies the city with
lights, expires in about lour years,
when tbe city will enter the field.
Belmont Group Reported Sold.
Sumpter It is reported that Gllkcy
and Kershaw, owners of the Belmont
group, in the Greenhorn district, hnvo
sold their protterty at a snug sum.
Tbe amount said to be realized is $30,
000, with a holding still in the group
on a share proposition. Neither Mr.
Ciilkey nor Mr. Kershaw could Ins seen,
therefore the report could not be veri
fied by them. This is the same prop
erty for which such phenomenal clean
up have been made during the past
Columbia Timber Purchase.
St. Helens Kills Jennings, who re
sides near St. Helens, has sold to n
company of capitalists of Alabama, -80
acres of choice timber lands located
alout three and one-lialf miles from
St. Helens, on Milton creek, for $8,
600, the highest price ever paid for
timber lands in this vicinity. The
timber is mostly yellow fir and cedar.
The purchasers exct to erect a large
sawmill on the property. Other large
deals are now being negotiated for.
Cut Fir When Line is Finished.
Dallas Tho Dallas Oak mills are
now pinning on full time. The mills
will continue to cut oak lumber nntil
the extension on the Dallas & Falls
City railroad Is finished, when it is
understood the mill will be enlarged
and will cut fir on a large scale. This
mill is on the Falls City road and Is
already supplied with switching facil

Susanville's Good Crop Prospect.
Susanvllle Prospects lor a good
harvest this year in tho immediate vi
cinity were never better and farmers
are all making preparations for an un

All the stock on the ranges is doir.g
finely and from present outlook there
will be enough grass to last till far in

It Is understood, however, that tho men
charged with complicity In tho stato
land fronds are well known ocralora
residing in Oregon and In the Kast, nud
that they can bo easily taken into cus
tody when wanted. Some of them
have indicated their willingness to

MERLIN PEACH YIELD.
Crop Both Heavy and Early, Reports
Grants Pass Arthur Hussey, of
Merlin, reports the eaeh crop in tltat
vicinity as heavier than it has been for
a numlwr of years pat, and says seve
ral of the larger growers have had turn
employed tot several days thinning out
the crop. The Merlin district is n very
favored locality for jeacherf, frost sel
dom catching them, and the soil being
of a very productive nature. Die larg
est peach growers of tiiat district are
A. C. Ford and Charles Doier, although
Henry E. Booth has a splendid orchard
coming into Waring this year. Tho
early spring all through the Southern
Uiegon country makes the crop an ex
ceedingly early one this year, and Mr.
Hussey reports that the Karly Craw
fords will be ready for market about
August 1 this year.
Cottage Grove Crops.
Cottage Grove Tho crops around
town are in fine condition and some of
the grain will outclass most yields
heretofore made. Much of the fruit
was damaged by the late frosts, how
ever, and in sorno cases entirely ruined.
I hemes are scarce, btraw berries are
three boxes for 25c, and about off tho
market. There will be a good crop of
pears and apples on the uplands, but
the valley fruit hero is almost ruined.
The warm weather has brought garden
stuff to a fine growth. Some of the
corn in town is three feet high.
Sawmill and Electric Drills.
Bumpier A crew ot men Is now en
gaged at the Standard mine on the
erection of a sawmill recently shipped
there. The installation of the electric
drills will also be mado Immediately.
The Standard expects to be a heavy
shipper of smelting ore to tho smelter
here during the present summer.
Roads are now. In pretty good shao

are constantly being made to this
place from the outlying initios.

nounced his determination, surprise

Monday evening that the defense con
cluded it would not place Senator
Mltholl on the witness stand.
Even before the trial began, It was
expected that Senator Mitchell would
testify In bis own behalf. The United

limits dining the morning session In
anticipation of hearing from the sen
ator's own lips an absolute and nil
phatlc denial of all that Judgn A. II.
Tanner and Harry C. Robertson liml
told to the lurv. II was believed by
all who knuw tho Oregon senator that
his presence on tho witness stand
would have had a tremendous h fleet
upon the Jury. Homo of Ihcm Imllevo
a denial In toto might offset all that
bad lxn testified to by Tanner and
Robertson. It is understood that It
was Senator MllchoU's drs'ro to appear
on the stand, Why ho did not do so
Is known only to his coutuel and him
self. Judge Do Haven then called for tho
arguments on Instructions, and ex
Senator Thurston, who hail prevlousl)
Informed thociurt that he wished to
be heard on this point, presented Ills
argument Ho soke for over an hour.
He was answered by Mr. Honey, and
he in turn was answered by Judge Bur
nett. Judge, Do Haven then announred
that it was not Ills custom to limit tho
arguments, but ho wished to know tho
desires of tho attorneys on this xHnt.
