PEOPLE ARE BUYING FIREARMS
Though Workmen Organize Forco to
Keep Order, Means of Protec

Stockholm, Aug. 6, With the street

futing to work, tho labor difficulties
here glvo promise of soon becoming
acute Tho general atrlko called for
today has not yet become thoroughly
effective, though the ranks of the
strikers havo been considerably aug
mented. Many affiliated organizations,
while sympathizing with tho strike
movement, are t till withdrawing their
ctire support, preferring to lot others
take tho lead in tho present crisis.
The Strlko is by no means general in
the provincial towns and industrial
centers of Sweden. In most places tho
streetcars aro running and the city em
ployes are at work as usual. No dis
turbances havo been reported. The
loading of ships at Gothenburg, where
10,000 men are on strlko, is being done
Tho fact that troops are protecting
the gas works and tho electric light
plant has incensed the workmen, whoee
leaders threaten to call out all the men

object of maintaining order, and

FORMOSA TO PRODUCE SUGAR
Will Soon Lead World Japan's
to Kill Head Hunters.
Victoria, B. a, Aug. 6. Paul Bell,
an engineer of the Honolulu Iron
works, returned on the Tango Mara to
day from Formosa, where he has been
establishing sugar mills for the Japan
ese Sugar company, and states that
Formosa will, by next year, be the
greatest sugar-producing country in I
the world. Five new mills were erect-1
ed this year and five more are to be
built next summer, all equipped with'
the latest machinery. The output this
year was 90,000 tons, all of which I
went to Japan.
The Japanese are adopting a cruel '
method of dealing with the rebels of ,
Formosa, bead hunters. They have
strectched troehas of barbed wire across
districts, heavily charged with elec
tricity. BEE STINGS CURE.
California Man Crippled With
matlim Now Wfcll.
Redding, Cal., Aug. 5. Tortured by
rheumatic pains, from which be has
suffered for months, James R. Holt,
head of a local contracting firm, sub
mitted himself to the stings of 39 honey
bees yesterday, and today walked to
his office for the first time in many
days, declaring that his joints were as
limber as those of a boy.
Mr. Holt has been so crippled with
the disease that for months be was
compelled to use a carriage to go from
his home to'bis office, three blocks
Ten or a dozen bees wore applied to
each aching joint, while the patient
writhed in agony. After It was over

two hours followed. He retired for
the night and finally fell asleep. When
he awoke this morning be was surpris
ed to feel no ache in bis joints.
Barcelona Is Quiet.
Barcelona, Aug. 6. The situation in
Barcelona today Is tranquil. The only
evidences of the terrible nlghtmres
through which the city passed last week
are the ruins of the convents and
churches, and the tcrn-up pavements,
tho stones of which were usod for the
erection of barricades. There Is, how
ever, considerable apprehension for the
future. Tho terrible repressive meas
ures of the military authorities have
left a deep undercurrent of resentment
among the masses, and it is thought
that he rebellion may flare up again.

CONTEST SPOKANE DECISION.
Southern Pacific and Santa Fe Will
Lead In Fight.
San Francisco, Aug. 6. After ten
days of discussion the froight agents
of the Southern Pacific, the Santa Fe
and other transcontinental railroads
announced today that they had decided
to fight the affirmation of the Spokane
decision and its application toother
George W. Luce, general freight
agent of the Southern Pacific company,
said that when the matter is taken up
at Spokane next October his company
and the Santa Fe will contest the atti
tude of the Northern railroads, which
favors the granting of terminal rates
to intermediate point. A battle royal
is expected at that meeting.
Luce declared that bis company took
the position that Intermediate points
aro not entitled to terminal rates; that
to grant them such rates would bo to
open a vast field to the manufacturers
of the Middle West heretofore reserved
for Western enterprise.
lie said that in view of the water
competition on the Coast, tho present
policy of forcing intermediate points
to pay rates to the Coast plus the local
freight back, was considered fair and
reasonable by the Southern Pacific and
Santa Fe, whereas the Northern roads
favored a proposal to limit the distri
buting area on the Coast to a narrow
strip paralleling the shore line.
CRETAN TROUBLE BREWING.
Mussulmans In Macedonia Threaten

man population of Macedonia would
march against Greece.
The. grand vizier, on receiving the
message, hurriedly left the council of
ministers, went personally to the tele
graph office and replied that the gov
ernment was taking active steps to
prevent the annexation of Creto by
Pirates Loot and Kill.
Victoria, B. C, Aug. C Advices by
the Tango Maru today note remarkable
recrudescence of piracy in South China
waters, tho most desperate band of out
laws having headquarters apparently in
tho vicinity of Macao, where the com
munities are so terrorized ns to lend
the piratcB active as well as pasiivo
assistance, fearing summary vengeance
otherwise. Near Sbantuk the water
pirates, united with a local band of
robbers, made a foray inland and took
by storm the castle like home of a lo
cal merchant and financier.

f OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
SHEEP PROSPECTS GOOD.

Pendleton Tho rnnge In this section
is of tho very best nnd sheep prospects
scro never so bright. Sheep of all
kinds aro commanding high prices and
tho prosccts aro that wool will bo na
high or higher next spring than It was
last. These facts coupled with the ex
cellent rango gives shecmen cause for
much gratification. '
Tho reason for tho uood tango Is at
tributed to tho peculiar weather condi
tions which havo prevailed during tho
spring nnd early summer months, aa
well as during last winter. The heavy
fall of snow which remained on the
ground so long soaked to n groat depth.
Then showers hnvo visited nearly
every section of tho mountains at In
tervals, to that tho grass is both tall
and green and there is every Indication
that it will remain so throughout the
For this reason tho sheep will como
out of tho mountains this fall in tho
best of condition, nnd will bo nble to
como through tho winter In good shape,
even though there should be no early
fall rains to put tho winter range In
shspe. The fine summer rango will
make it possible to keep tho sheep in
the mountains longer than usual.
