Conger Condemns Failure to Build
Railroad as Promised.
Des Moines, la., Sept. 23. In an
address before the Grant club tonight,
cx-Mlnlster to China Edwin II. Conger
said that by the failure ot the Ameri-
cans to build the Chinese railway, faith
had been broken with China, and
America's good standing with the Chin
ese seriously impaired.
"We made a very serious mistake
when we permitted our railroad conces
sion in China to bo relinquished," said
Mr. Conger. "It will prove a sad blow
to our future efforts to establish ad
vantageous busines relations with that
country. It will set us back many
"When wo wero granted the conces
sion, personally I made representations
to the Chinese that the railroad would
bo built bv the Americana who got the
concession, assured them upon my hon
or that It was not secured for the pur
pose of exploitation, and that it would
not bo sold or relinquished. Now,
however, it has been, and the business
men ot China feel that they have a
right to look upon future business
propositions fiom Americans with sus
picion." DISAGREE ABOUT FORTS.

Sweden and Norway Still Keep Ques

Karlstad, Sept. 23. The Swrdlth
and Norwegians eommlal',ner8 met in
joint conference this evening after the
holding of separate conferences during
the day. The joint conference lasted
nearly four hours and was then ad
journed until tomorrow.
It is understood that the Swedish de
mands that the transit trade through
both countries shall be secured against
unjustifiable obstruction, and tor the
right of pasturing reindeer belonging
to Swedish Laplanders in Northern
Norway, have been amicably settled,
but that teh question ot the demolition
of tho fortifications still remains open.

bly for the discussion of political and
economic questions a reform second in

on Saturday will be immediately laid
before Emperor Nicholas. Its promul

Belleville, III., Sopt. 22. Three per
sons were seriously injured and it is
believed that nearly. 200 were more or
less painfully hurt by the collapse of a
bandstand tonight during a carnival
and street fair.
Seriously injured: Mrs. Damrich,
Belleville, internal injuries; Frank
Dieti, Jr., Belleville, internal Injuries;
Miss Bertha Schrieber, Belleville, in
jury to leg, sprained ankle and bruised
about body, hands and face.
As soon as the excitement subsided
and the injured were taken from among
tne maw ot timbers, others who were
on the carnival grounds attended them.
The accident was caused by people
:rowding upen the bandstand as a van
tage point to witness a loop-the-loop
exhibition. Hundreds took standing
room on the stand.
Salem That some very careless work
has been done in taking tho statu cen
sus is evident from the returns thus far
revolved by Secretary of State Dunbar
irom county clerks, uniy low coun
ties have sent In their census returns,
out II tno reports irom those lew aro n
fair samplo of what tho wholo will be,
It may safely be said that tho census
will bo very unsatisfactory. Not only
aro thcro many glaring errors in minor
details, but tho totals show that In the
enumeration of opulatlon thorough
work has not been done.
The returns from Klamath county,
for instance, will scarcely bo pleasing
to the people of that growing section of
tho state. The footings of the column
devoted to population show that Kin-
inatli lias now 3,830 inhabitants, while
the Federal census ot live years ago dis
closed n population of 3,070, or 134
more. Only seven Indians aro report
ed a residing In Klamath county, ac
cording to the stato census, taken by
tne assessor, while the l-ederal census
contained tho (Information that Kin
math had 1,130 Indians. Of the 3,83(1
inhabitants reported In 1005 by the as
sessor, 2,220 are males and 1,010 aro
females. There are 1,337 legal voters
and 1,047 men liable for military duty.
The Klamath county returns also fall
to show the population of the Incorpor
ated cities, an item of Information al
ways desired. Aiuoiik the minor error
are such as might be duo to clerical
mistakes, such as classing a woman or
a minor as liable to military duty.
hrrora of tms kind wero apparently
duo to making a mark inadvertently in
tho wrong column, and such errors
make no material differences in the
total. The most imKrtant matter is
that of securing a full enumeration,
and It is doubtful whether the teople
of Klamath county will want to have the
records show a decrease in population
in the last five years.
DEMAND TREATY BE BROKEN
Anti-Peace Meeting at Toklo Demands
Tokio, Sept. 22. An anti peace
meeting held in Uyena park today was
barely attended, owing to a heavy rain.
The tone ot the meeting wai quiet.
The approaches to the park were
guarded by troops, but no guards were
pouted Inside. Resolutions adopted at
the meeting demand that the cabinet
break the peace treaty or resign. It
was decided to bring pressure to bear
on members of the lower house to con
form with the resolution, threatening
not to re-elect those failing to so act.
The resolution also demands sweeping
reiorm In the administration of the po

Colorado Cuts Speed Record.
Boston, Sept. 22. The officers of the
armored cruiser Colorado, which put in
here today lor coal, report that In the
recent trials over the new one-mile
course near Rockland, M., the warship
attained the fastest speed ever made by
a naval crew. The cruiser made 22 22
miles an hour in a four-hour run to sea
on Sunday, which is within 0.4 of the
speed she made on her trial trip. On
the Rockland test tho ship carried her
heavy armament, which was not on
board during her trial trip, and she
was run without a full firemen's forco.
Snowsheds Are Burning.
San Francisco, Sept. 22. News has

a few miles from the summit of the
Sierra Nevada mountains, that 2,000
feet of snowsheds havo been destroyed

Western Union reports having lost all
wires over the Central route. It is
further reported that all trains will

Run Night and Day.
Eugene It. A. Booth, manager of
the Booth-Kelly Lumber company,
makes the announcement that the com
pany's big mill at Springfield will, as
soon as enough men can bo secured, lie-
gin to run at night, thus doubling the
present capacity of the plant. It is
said that the company's mill nt Wend
ling, which has been idle ever since
the great shortage of cars on the South
ern Pacific railroad seven years ago
caused it to bo shut down, will resume
operations in a short time. The mat
ter ot a small difference In freight rates
on tho Mohawk branch Is said to be all
that prevents tho Immediate resump
tion of operations at endling.
No Timber Has Been Burned.
Tillamook The recent soaking rain
was timely. All fear of forest fires this
year has been allayed, tor tho timber
in the mountains had a thorough soak
ing, as well as tho meadows, which
will help fall pasture. Tho rain also
put out the fires of the settlers who are
clearing up and burning brush. Most
all the settlers have been engaged in
clearing up land more or less this sum
mer, and County Clerk G. It. Lamb has
issued 5,860 fire permits. Settlers
have used great care in not allowing
the fires to get away from them, and as
a result not a stick of timber has been
damaged this year by forest fires.
Cement Right at Hand,'
Klamath Falls Aftor a .thorough
learch and much experimenting, the
government experts havo discovered a
formation here for the manufacture of
Portland cement. The exact location
of this formation is kept as a close
secret so far, but those connected with
the government work here say the
samples have stood the test and a plant
will be put in here to manfuacture the
cement. Samples of tho formation
were sent to the government mill at
Roosevelt, Ariz., where a small bri
quette was mado.
PRUNES ALL SOLD.
Wlllamotto Valley Growers Got Good
Prlcos for Their Crop.
Salem Practically all the prunes

tary to Salem have already boon con
tracted or sold outright, nt price very
satisfactory to growers. The I ml
price generally paid tins boon 2)ij cents,
though a premium of li cent was paid
on tho largest site.
As a rule, the Italian prunes average
In the 40-50 site, thus giving the grow
er 4S, cents a pound, or a fraction
better, for his entire crop. There are a
few orchards that hnvo yielded prunes
that will average 30-40 to the iKiuud,
thus giving tho grower 5 cents a pound
f or his entire crop.
Petite prunes In this vicinity gtnor
ally average In the 60.00 site, innklng

others in weight of hops produced this
year is a ton-acre field south of this

It Is river bottom land, with alluvial
soil. The yard yielded 108,5:13 (winds
