The tragic scenes of the San Francis

There was a fight against fire, the lack
of water and robbery and pillage.
The authorities are now beginning to
get in provisions, and water again is
being supplied. All the fires have
been extinguished. The first shock

that experienced gunners will be pro

The United States has not been asktd

The subject of American intervention
is not much discussed here, and is re

NOT ENOUGH MONEY FOR ALL.
Deficiency In Appropriations for Ma
neuvers of State Troops.
Washington, Aug. 24. After a month
of hard work, Assistant Secretary Oliv
er, of the War department, concluded
that he bad finally made a satisfactory
adjustment of the many difficulties in
apportioning the appropriation of $700,
000 for pay of the militia at the ma
neuvers in different camps throughout
the country, but it appears that all is
not satisfactory. In some cases more
stato troops than bad been given in the
schedule were sent into the camps and
more expense was thus added. This
caused a deficit in the allotment of
funds, especially in the matter of pay
for the state troops. The pay depart
ment of the army decided to pay the
troops as long aa the funds lasted, those
who came last going unpaid. Another
adjustment may be made after the
camps have finished their work, as
some camps may not use all the money
allotted to them and the funds can be
nsed to make up the deficit elsewhere.
It is possible that congress will be .ask
ed to make an appropriation to cover
the deficit and the state troops pain

It is alleged by the postal authorities
that the operations of Buslinell and

five years, have netted them $850,000

OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
MILKING MACHINE TESTS.
Demonstration of Tholr Value To De
Given at State Fair.
Salem Milking machines in opera
tion n ill bo one of tho principal fea
tures of tho dntry department at tho
State fair, which opens hore September
10. tanners and dairymen have al
ways been Interested In tho subject of
milking machines and tholr Interest as
become, particularly strong In the last
few years w hen dairying In this stato
has been hampered by tho difficulty in
securing milkers. Men da not llko to
milk and will not take work of that
kind if they ran gel anything else at
the same wages. Hut milking rnachln
or j has not generally been found to be
successful and dairymen havo been
compelled to depend upon such labor
as they could gut.
There are romo manufacturers of
milking rnarhlnes who think the. havo
contrived apparatus that will extract
tho lacteal (luid from tho patient or im
patient cow, whether she be a hard
milker or an eary one. Machines so
simple that a boy can run them, are tl-
leged to bo ready for tho farmer who
doesn't like to milk and cannot hire
somebody elo to do it for him. Ma
chines adjustable for tall cows or short
ones, kickers and nonklckers, Jerseys,
Holstelns or scrubs, await the doubting
owner of the dairy herd. It's all a
question of proof and the state board of
agriculture proposes to give tho manu
facturers of milking machines the op
portunity to prove by actual demon
stration. There will bo plenty of cows at the
fair and the owners ol machines will ho
called upon twice a day to do the milk
ing. If the machines work to tho sat
isfaction of the farmers, there will be
some business In milking machines.
If they don't work, the cows and their
owners will give the machine manufac
tured the laugh.
Hut whether tho machines work or
don't work, the state board of agricul
ture will give the farmers a chance to
see them tried, and beyond doubt there
will be ranchers around the stock pens
twice a day to see the'demonstratlon,
and the fun, if any of the cows object
to the unaccustomed treatment.
New Hospital at Chemawa.
Chemawa Plans and specifications
have been received at the Indian school
here for a new brlrk $15,000 hospital,
for which bids will be received and the
contract awarded September 13. The
building is to be supplied with the lat
est improved methods of heating and
ventilation, and will be equipped with
the best sanitary appliances. It will
be steam heated and electric lighted.
The main building will be two stories,
80x33, and will have two wings, 31x24.
In connection with the new hospital
the school management will continue
and extend tho open air sanitarium
which it has been running since spring
with excellent results.
Oregon Flax Good.
Ealem George Verbeke, son ol one
of the wealthiest linen manufaturers of
Ghent, Belgium, and a member o( tho
firm of Morel fc Verbeke, is in Salem to
mako a scientific investigation into the
possibilities for the development of the
flax and linen Industries of Oregon,
He said: "I have been able to arrive
at only one conclusion as a result of the
limited Investigations which I have
made during my stay hero, and that Is
that Oregon certainly produces a very
high grade of flax, equal to an) that I
have ever seen, and, in my judgment,
it Is capable of being manufactured in
to the choicest of linen fabrics."
Burned Trees Have Value.
Albany Experienced lumbermen
state that activity on the part of mill
men will save much of the timber in
the burnt district up the North San
tiam river. The fire as ft rushes
through th green 'timber burns those
parts of the trees which are loaded with
pitch, and leaves the wood but little
charred. All the limbs and foliage are
devoured, and the pitchy bark is burn
ed through, but the part that Is valua
ble for lumber is Injured but little.
This charred timber may bo utilized
(or milling purposes at anytime within
four years after tho fire aa a rule.
Clackamas Farmers Are Pleased.
Oregon City Gottfried Moehnke, a
farmer at Shubel, reports a yield of 74
bushels per acre from a five-acre field
of oats, An exceptionally good yield
of wheat and oats, both in quality and
quantity, is reported by Clackamas
county farmers as fares the harvest has
progressed, A yield of 70 bushels of
oats per acre is also reported from the
farm of George Lazelle near New Era.
Cuts Heavy Crop of Oats.
La Grande James Halley harvested
10 acres of oats last week, which will
average 80 bushels. The straw was so
heavy and thick that the binder could
cut only half a swath at a time, and It
took two days to cut the grain. This
should not be considered bad for a

Tho total investment was $5,025,

Wheat Record at Westen.
Weston Weston claims tho largest
crop threshed In Oregon, and perhaps
in the Northwest, In proportion to the
acreago seeded. J. M. Hannlstor had
exactly 5,042 sacks from 208 acre, one
mile west of town, nn average of 03
bushels an acre, at 140 pounds to tho

FOREIGN CAPITAL TO REBUILD.
Interests Aro Largo and Chilean
Credit Is Good.
New York, Aug. 22. Qjan Tonkin,
a Chilean civil engineer, who Is now In
New York, said last night.
"In Valparaiso local and (oielgn In
terests are so great that It Is absolutely
certain the city will be rebuilt. The
financial burden o( rehabilitation will
not be thrown on Chile alone, but also
on the numerous foreign Interests,
which Include most ol the nations ol
the world. Ol the foreign interests I
believe the English will be the heaviest
losers, espoclnlly the many l.ngllsh flro
Iniuranco companies thnt suffered such
ureal losses in the destruction of San
Franclico. However, it must be kept
In mind that Chllu enjoys very high
financial credit, especially In the Itn
don market, where her bonds nie quot
ed at 00i per cent. The external debt
of Chile Is about $105,000,000, which
has always been scrupulously served,
and It takes only 21 per cent of the
Chilean government revenue to servo
this debt. The Chilean stato railway
alone represents nearly as much aa the
external debt, while the salt petre
lands represent four or five times as

That is the question uppermost In
the mind of every officer ol the army
tonight, and also the chief topic ol dis
cussion at the military clubs, on the
question arising through the Indus
trlous circulation ol a report that the
czar lias sent lor tue genornl and In-
tends to place him once again at tho

action would overthrow all ancient
Russian t'adltlons, hut It Is apparently
Kuropatkln is the one man, nnd
probably tho only one In nil Russia,
who is in n position to reorgnnlzo the

only officer of general rank who has
their interest at heart. If Intrusted
with tho task of bringing hack the al
legiance ol the troops to tho "Little

the belief here that ho is to come into
