ployes ol the electric lighting plants,
always the earl lee t barometric record ol
political conditions, ceased work during
tho afternoon in obedience, to tho call
for a general strike. This call already
has been obeyed by 20,000 factory
hands in tho capital. It will be im
possible, however, to predict tho suc
cess of this universal political strike
until Monday, as the workmen in St.
Petersburg and the provinces havo two
holidays Saturday, which is tho fete
day of the dowager empress and n great
religions feast, and their regular holi
day of Sunday.
Tho pickets of cavalry and infantry
were tho most conspicuous features on
the streets cf St. Petersburg last nlcht.
Business houses generally have boarded
up their windows as they did in the
days of the great October strike. Prsc-
ttcally all of the street cars in tho city
have stopped running, and the cab driv
ers are threatening to cease work.
In the meantime the fate of the
Stolypin cabinet sways in ths balance
and Russia 1 upon the verge of disor
ders which may lead to the reign of
either the military or the proletariat.
It can be stated definitely that the steps
toward a dictatorship may be Uken
Sunday or Monday by the nomination
of Grand Duke Nicholas to the chief
command of all the troops in Russia.
This would virtually place him in con
trol of all the disturbed districts of the
empire where martial law has been
Artillery In Open Revolt.
Warsaw, Poland, Aug. 4. A portiou
of the troops in the Summer Rembert
off, near here, mntinied yesterday and
a e in open revolt today. The artil
lerymen have driven their officers out
of their quarters. A squadron of Cos
sacks sent to overpower the mutineers
was received with grapeshot. Details
are lacking, as extraordinary precau
tions art) being taken to prevent the
facts becoming public.
Rebels Fire Big Woodyards.
Ilarkov, Aug. 4 Fire broke out in
several large woodyards in the vicinity
of the prison today. This evidently
was a device on the part of revolution
ists, who hoped to freo political leaders
during the confusion. The authorities
are apprehensive ol a renewed effoit to
the same end.
PUT OUT OF BUSINESS.

Blow to Two Companies.
San Francitco, Aug. 4. Insurance
Commissioner Wolf sent notice hday
to the president and directors of the
Fireman's Fund Insurance company
and the Home Fire & Marine Insurance
company, both of San Francisco, that
unless they made good their deficiency
in capital stock in fonr weeks he will
request Attorney General Webb tc pro
ceed to ascerUln why their licenses to
do business in California revoked.
Both companies have been known to
be in financial trouble since the fire.
The Home Fire & Marine has announc
ed that it will do no more business.
The Fireman's Fund has reinsured its
risks to the amount of $372,584,760,
carrying premiums amounting to $4,
471,117 with tho new Fireman's Fund
corporation, which has been organized
since the fire. Roth companies have
thus confeised failure.
Wolf's order, It is expected, will
permanently close their doors."
Subpenas for Standard Men.
New York, Aug. 4. Forty or more
subpenas for officers and employes of
the Standard Oil company have been
forwarded to New York from Chicago.
Several of the officials of the Standard
Oil would not ay whether they bad re
ceived the subpenas from Illinois. In
quiries were referred to M. F. Klliott,
genoral counsel for the company, who
eaid so far as he know no attempt had
been made to serve any of the officials.
Mr. Elliott would not sty what atti
tude the officials would tike in case the
aubpena servers put in an appearance.

DARK HOUR IN RUSSIA.
New Mutinies Dronk Out as Fast as
Others Aro Supprossod.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 3. Nearly 3,
000 eappeis, sailors, pioneers ami min
ors at Cronstadt mutinied about 11
o'clock last night. They planned to
ootze tho forts and thn brldgo leading
to Fort Cronstadt, but their plans wero
foiled by tho precautions taken by tho
commander. Aftor a severe fight tho
loyal troops opened tire on them with
machine guns, and as they had no ar
tlllory avallablo and the arsenal had
been stripped before thoy could seise it,
they had no alternative hut surrender.
A court martial began sitting this
morning, and is sentencing tho mutin
eers to death by hundreds.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 3. Tho crew of
the armored cruiser Pamyat Axova mu
tinied off tho Esthonlan coast and is
now in full possession of the ship,
which has failed northward in tho di
rection of tho Finnish gulf.
Roval, Aug. 3. Tho cruiser Pamyat
Azova has arrived In tho roadstead here
in the possession of tho loyal portion of

the mutineers have been sent ashore
and imprisoned. Tho mutineers were
overpowered by the loyal sailors while
the ship was at sea.

sent to Abo, has hoisted tho red Hag.
The vessel has left in the direction ol
The ministry of marine has confirmed
the report that Admiral BIrlleff had
gone to Ilelsingfois on board the school
ship Alia, whose crew has mutinied.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 3. Military
disorders have broken out at Reval.
Details cannot bo obtained.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 3. Although
tbe mutinies at Svtnborg have been
ended and tho one at Cronstadt has
been practically put down, tho outlook
is still black. The revolutionists,
whose bands were suddenly forced by
tbe premature rising at Sveaborg, ap
parently are undaunted at these Initial
reverses and intend to persist in their
program of calling a general striko on
Saturday or Monday.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 3. On the heels
of the other bad news comes the startl
ing statement that the emperor has
flatly refused to accept the conditions
to which Premier Stolypin aggreed in
his negotiations with Count Ileydon,
Alexander Gucbkoff. Prince Nicholas
Lvoff. Paul Vinogradoff and Senator
Konl for tbe reorganization of the cab

that the emperor purposes to take tbe
final itep of turning the country over

ISLANDS' RICE IMPORTS SMALL.
Ide Says They Produce More,
chants They Eat Lets.
Manila, Aug. 3. Governor Ide has
received reports stating that during the
fltcal year ending June 30 the importa
tions of rica to the Philippines ilf creas
ed 01,072,411 pounds, valued at $3,
084,783 in gold. Commenting on (he
reports Governor Ide says:
"From these reports It appears that
the number of pounds of rice Imported
into the Philippines during the flieal
year of 1000 was something lets than
three-sevenths of the importations of
1001, and the cish sent out from the
islands for rice was less than four-elevenths
of the sum sent In 1804. If the
same ratio of decrease for a year or even
a semester, no more rice will be import
ed and in two yejus the Islands, besides
supplying the home demand, ought to
be exporting rice."
The pub. icitlon of these, reports has
cxuied a controversy. The local ship
pers contend that the decrease of im
portations is a result of the poverty of
the people, who, It is alleged, are not
buying rice, but are living on yams and
other food. The shippers declare that
the Philippines will never export rice.
Catholics for Limited Divorce.
Buffalo, Aug. 3. At today's meeting
of thn American Federation of Catholics
a resolution waa adopted defining the
position of tho federation on tho ques
tion of diverce. It recommends the
enactment of laws granting a aeparat oi
or limited divorce in those states which
have no ouch laws, and in states which
grant absolute divorces the federation
asks that the applicant be allowed to
ask for a limited dlvorcs on the same
grounds under which an absoluto di
voted la granted. Limited divorce in
extreme cases la recommended.

OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST I
FOR EQUITABLE TAX.
State Commission Proposos Rovlslon
. of Presont Law.
Salem- With a view to securing a
more equitable assessment of property
In tills state, tho Oregon Tax commis
sion has recommended a revision of thu
law governing tho equalization of as
sessments by tho county lward. In
this connection, tho commission gives
Its Hat disapproval to thn plau olten
agitated of huving tho assessment rolls
published in tho newspapers In tho
locality in which tho properly assessed
Thu proposed revision of tho law re
lating to equalization ol tho assess
ment is largely based upon Incouslstcn
cies in tho present law, hut also upon a
laxity in the law by which wealthy
property owners have been nbln to co
erco county ourts into allowing an In
equltablo assessment to stand. The
commission proposes a law which seems
to havo "teeth In it," and which will
bo effective If county officers are dis
posed to do their duty.
Tho Inconsistency In tho present law
Ilea in tho fact that thu county board
of equalization is required to meet on
tho last Monday in August, whllo tlio
assessor is given until the first Monday
In Set tember to file his roll, or until
the first Monday in October if tho
county court makes an order to that
effect. At the same time thero is no
authority of law (or an extension of the
time ol meeting of tho county board ol
Assessors usually take tho full tlmo
to prepare their rolls, and very fre
quently ask for and aro granted tho
extension of time. Commenting upon
this condition of tho lns, the commis
sion says that "tho board of equaliza
tion is thus requlro.1 to meet perhaps
six weeks before the ascetanunt roll is
completed, and as Its functions lapse
when it has been in session a Meek, It
mutt have passed out of legal existence
at a date before the assessor Is required
to have the assessment roll ready to
"Under the present system wo have
practically two boards of equalization,"
says the commission, "onn meeting
after the other, and having full power
to undo the work of Its piedecessor.
The county board of equalization con
tinues in session one week, and if it
does not complete its work within the
week, the county court, at its next reg
ular session, completes the examina
tion and correction of the roll.
Tbe new taw ia to do away with this,
making provision for the board meeting
after the roll la completed.
This proposed law contains several
provlilona that seem to be an improve
ment upon the existing law. In the
first place, a taxpayer will not go before
tbe county board of equalization nnless
ho has a real grievance, for the court
has power to raise his assessment, and
his formal petition will serve to call
the attention of his neighbors and the
public generally to the representations
he is making governing the value of his
property, t'laclng the matter of equal
ization entiioly in the hands of one
board instead of two will centralizo the
responsibilty and give time and oppor
tunity for careful and well advised
Flro Precautions at Asylum.
Balem Lest frlenda and relatives of
the 1,420 patients confined In tho In
sane aaylnm may be unduly concerned
as to their welfare on account of the
recent fire at that institution, an otllelal
of the asylum says that none ol the pa
tients were in danger, and would not
be even In case of a fire serious enough
to destroy a considerable portion of the
building. The facilities for getting
patients out of the building are such
that a disastrous fire need nntcaute the
loss of a single lifo. In this particular
the building could scarcely be improved.
Umatilla Canal Contract Let.
Wasbnlgton The secretary of the
Interior has awarded thu contract to the
Puget Hound Bridge & Dredging com.
pany, of Heattle, for the construction of
the storage feed canal of the Umatilla
Irrigation project. The work of the
contract involves the construction of 26
miles of canal from tho Umatilla river,
near Echo, to Cold Springs reservoir,
and consists of 700,000 cubic yards of
earth excavation, 0,000 cubic yards of
rock excavation, 2,300 cubic yarda of
concrete and 2 COO cubic yarda of rip
rap. The bid was $10J, 388.
Wheat Yield About Normal.
Pendleton The harvest in all parts
of Umatilla county has commenced.
The threshing up to this time has been
too limited to make a very close esti
mato of the yield, but from what has
been threshed on tho reservation, and
around Athena it Is thought tho yield
In those districts will be about normal
and had it not beon for tho hot winds
the yield would havo been at least 26
per cent aboyo the average.
Flour Mills Closed Down.
La Grande Tbe flouring mills of La
Grande, Island City and Union have
closed down, having utilized all tbejjld,
supply of wheat.
Household Goods Not Entitled to Ex.
omptlon, Says Supremo Court.
Salem Hy holding, In a decision Just
rendered, that the householder's tax
exemption la unconstitutional, tho Ore
gon Supreme court has declared void a
itatuto that has been In force In this
statu almost continuously slnco 1851).
Householders' exemptions havo been
allowed every year except 100 1, when
thn exemption law had been repealed.
It was ro-enactcd by tho special session
of 1003, hut went Into effect too late
to bo applicable to tlio assessment of
Approximately $8,000,000 has Iwnn
exempted front taxation in this statu
from year to year, and IcKlslators,
county officers ntd tho peoplu Kcuorally
havo rncognlxud tlio exemption as valid.
Now tho Supremo court has declared all
these exemptions Invalid.
This decision will make It necessary
for county assessors In many counties
to tiiako a reassessment of property In
their counties for 1000, for It is the
practicn of many assessors not to I let
property that Is exempt. In some ami
perhaps most of tho counties tho assess
ors list tho exempt property and make
the deductions afterward.
Clackamas Farmers Are Happy.
X)reson City There is an abundant
yield of all hay and grain crops In
Clackamas county this year that aur

fruits and vegetables yielded heavily,
