WHOLE TOWNS ARE SWEPT AWAY
American Drag Many Natives From
Roofs of Houses Floating
Manila, Oct. Si Delated reports in
dicate that tlio storm of 0toler 12 in
tho Cagayan valley was the worst ami
most destructive within tho memory
of living inhabitants of tho valley. Tho
official figures nro not yet nvnilable,
as many places have not yet been heanl
from, but it seems certain that tho
number of dead will reach 300.
There was n heavy typhoon anil tor
rential rains throughout tho valley and
in tho mountains. Tlio rivers wero
flooded and in many places rose to a
height of 30 feet, sweeping everything
Lcforo them in their rush to tho sea.
Hundreds of animals and houses wero
awept away by the waters.
At Aparrl, which was almost com
pletely under water, tho American resi
dents, headed by Lieutenants Treadway
and Clark, Postmaster Foss and Kngii
neer Clark, formed a rescue brigade,
which rescued scores of natives, taking
many off their houses whilo floating
down the river.
Tho government has dispatched a
coast guard cutter to investigate con
ditions and organizo relief.
It is reported that cholera has broken

WAR CLOUDS THREATEN.
Situation in Balkans Far From Being
Paris, Oct. S2 The feeling in French
government circles is distinctly nerv
ous, both with .regard to the situation
in the Dalkans and the proposed inter
national congress. Advices arc that
the Turkish government is impatient
beeauso Bulgaria has failed to present
an official communication since Tur
key received the French assurance in
the namo of Emperor Ferdinand, while
from Sofia comes information that the
(alinoff cabinet still refuses to accept
tho advice of Ferdinand, who advocates
a peaceful settlement and insists that
it would bo preferable to go to war
than to pay an indemnity.
Until tho Bulgarian ministry yields
definitely it is considered by the of
ficials of the French government that
the danger of war has not been dis
pelled. Reports current in Paris that Haron
von Hlebcrstein, the German ambama-
dor at Constantinople, has been coun
seling war, whilo not confirmed, caused
disquietude, especially as Germany's
attitude grows more and more enig
matical. CONTEST LAND PATENTS.

ing property in a number of districts,
yesterday announced that on January

years ago to the Southern Pacific to a
largo aroo of mineral land extending
from Winneuiueca to tho Nevada-California

dreds of prospectors and miners.

for a number of years, thinking a do
rUIon in tho ono case decided would
similarly affect them all. Now it Is
discovered that each disputant must
filo a separato protest to establish his

this would bo overlooked. However,

JOREaON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
WHO CAN VOTE.
Section of State Laws on Presiden
tial Election Requirements.
Who can voto for presidential elec
tors, mid thus for tho presidential can
didates, nt tho presidential election of
November !IT This is n question which
is asked ninny times each day through
out tho state.
On every hand there seems to bo n
widespread belief that nny citizen of
tho United States can cast his ballot
nt tho presidential election, whether nt
his home, or on travel in n distant
state. Trnvollng men, distant from
their homes, are making dnily inquiry
whether it Is ossiblo for them to cast
their voto nt tho town where they tuny
bo on election day. In order to make
tho situntion plain the law of tho statu
is herewith set forth. Articlo 2, sec
tion II, of the constitution of tho state
of Oregon, sets out tho qunlillcntions
of electors in the state. Section 1! Is
"Sections. Qualifications of elec
torsIn nil elections not otherwise
provided for by this constitution every
whito mnlo citizen of tho United
States, of tho ago of 21 years and up
wards, who shall hnvo resided in tho
state during the six months immedi
ately preceding such election, and
every whito male of foreign birth of
the age oi 21 years and upwards, who
shall havo resided In this state during
the six months immediately preceding
such election, and shall havo declared
his intention to become n citizen of tho
United States one year preceding such
election, conformably to tho laws of
tho United States on the subject of na
turalization, shall bo entitled to vote
at all elections authorized by law."
It has been held by the Supreme
court that tho Fifteenth amendment to
the Federal constitution rendered tho
restriction to whito males of no enVct,
so that tho colored men of Oregon come
under the same constitutional require
ments that bind the whito voter, and
havo the samo privileges.
In addition to thesu constitutional
qualifications tho registration laws of
tho stato of Oregon place other re
strictions upon tho voter. All voters
nro required either to be registered in
tho county and precinct in which they
reside permanently, or If not register
ed, to bring six owners of real estate
in their precinct to makoatlldavit as to
tho residence of tho prospective voter.
In other words, there arc three re
quirements asked by tho law of the
First: Tho voter must be a native
born citizen of tho United States, over
21, who hns resided in tU stato for six
months or more.
Second: If not a native-born citl
zen, ho must nt least havo declared his
intention to become a citizen ono year,
or more, previous to tho election, and
must havo resided for six months or
moro in tho state, and must bo 21 years
or more of age.
Third: Doth native-born nnd foreign-born
residents, qualified under
the two preceding requirements to
vote, must bo registered with tho
county clerk, at tho registration time
preceding tho election, or, if not to
registered, must bring six freeholders
in order to register by affidavit.
Section 3 of articlo 2 of tho stato
constitution also says:
No idiotic or Insane person shall be
entitled to tho privileges of nn elector;
and tho privilege of an elector shall bo
forfeited by a conviction of any crime
which Is punishable by imprisonment
in tho penitentiary."
Men who have been sentenced to the
penitentiary, however, who havo serv
ed n portion or a whole of their term
and havo been pardoned by tho gover
nor of tho state aro restored to sulf rngo
by virtuo of that pardon.
It is also provided in section 5 of tho
constitution of tho state, articlo 2, that
"no soldier, seaman, or marino in tho
army or the navy of tho United States,
or of their allies, shall bo deemed to
havo acquired a residence in tho stnta
in conscquenco of having been sta
tioned within tho samo; nor shall any
such soldier, seaman or marino havo
tho right to vote."
Beet Sugar Factory Idle,
La Grande Had roads havo forced
tho sugar factory hero to stand idle
until the rains subside. At present
tho highways aro so muddy that beets
cannot bo hauled from tho field and
tho supply nt tho factory has' run out.
The furnaces aro kept hot oven though
the wheels stand idlo, and for this rea
son tho factory can resume its work as
soon as sufficient beets aro again in tho
bins to permit it.
Fall Work at Sweet Home.
Sweet Homo Tho rain of tho past

ple here. It was tho first rain this

ter everywhere, and fields and pastures
aro already showing green. Tho San
tiam at this point has raised eight
inches sinco tho rain began.
