Consul O. Bin Ruvndal at Heirut,
Byria, shows that the Syrians are
taking great interest in the World's
Fair at St. Louis. The merchants
and manufacturers of that country
have been greatly benefitted by the
American exposition directly and
indirectly. They not only have made
money but have gained many in
Ideas by their contact with the people
of the western world. The silk weav
lug, filagree and other Syrian Indus
tries have been revived as a conse

the influence of American Exjsisi

"Unless Cuba is annexed to the
United Slates within a year it never
will be," said G. Castellauns, of
Havana. "If the United States wants
the island, now is the time for them
to get it. The people are Mir, and
there is no demand for tho sugar and
tobacco, the priucinl products. The
failure of Congress to adopt the recip
rocity resolution was a great blow to
the island, but wo think wo shall
find a demand for our sugar in
Eurojie. When this is done our ieo-
pin will become prosperous, and all
will oppose annexation. Hut now,
witli hard times staring them in the
face, a grejit many Culmus favor an
nexatlou. This is eswcially true with
tho wealthy classes. They want to
sell their products, and reali.e the
benefits they would derive personally
by having an oiieii market. It will
take several years to bring order out
of chaos and establish prosjHTity.
Hut when this is done the. coplo will
bo satisfied, and will npjxise any
effort toward annexation. "

THE END OK OUTLAW TRACY.
Sjioknnc, August 6. Harry Tracy,
the outlaw murderer, who has been
defying the authorities of two states,
is dead. A hot battle with the posse,
in which the bandit was severely and
pcrlia) fatally wounded, 'was follow
ed by his suicide.
The cold body of tho murderer was
found at an early hour this morning
in a wheat field near the city of Eel
lows, on the Central Washington rail
road. When found, the dead body of
the much feared convict lay face up

right hand was his now famous ,10-110

This morning the entire hunting force
raided- the field and came npon the
lifeless body of the dciqierado. His
leg had been broken in the fight and
an artery severed from which he
would have bled to death. Tracy had
attempted to stop the flow of blood by
binding a strap about his leg, but this
did little good. It is, then thought
that, seeing death staring him in the
fuce, Tracy deliberately took his life
by placing the muzzle of a 43 Colts
close to his head and firing.
The remains of Harry Tracy were
received in Salem Monday morning,
and were quietly buried in the prison
cemetery by the side of David Merrill,

Aside from the change of name, the

Tho entire plant of the mine will
be doubled as will the force of men
at work. The new mill will have a
crushing cajweity of 50 tons of ore

and of the highest quality.

bringing his water supply from the
main branch of that stream. Since
getting sole possession of the projs-rty

In a run of 10 days he took out I1:

During this 111 days run he picked up
$70 in big nuggets, not from the
race bat from the bedrock. At
another time !5 in big pieces were
picked up ill eight days.
Mr. Wisccarver contemplates the
construction of another ditch from the

W. A. Montgomery, the well known
mining man, who has a good placer
claim on Grouse creek, in Siskiyou
county, has been ill Ashland during
the mst few days. He was coins'lled
to quit work on his mine in order to
eoine out and protect his property
against the grasping tilings of the t ho
lier locators who are now swarming
ill the wotsls of Southern Oregon and
Northern California. These timber
locators have filed claims on thousands
of acres that miners have been pros
ivcting and working for the ist .W
years. They have Ivecii tiled under the
timber laud act of is;s, claiming that
the laud is more valuable for its timber
or stone than for agricultural purposes.
Mr. Montgomery has tiled a protest
against a locator who covered his
claim at the Redding land olliee.

4 o'clock. The large barn of Mr. Goo,
M. Wright, with its entire contents
situated on adjoining ground, was also
destroyed by tire at tho same time, the
barn having caught from the flaming
buildings of the oil comiiny's plant.
I he lire represents a loss or approxi

the lire seems shrouded in mystery.

drilling plant was the largest and most
expensive one put into operation in
the state and had iicrfuratcd the eartl
for a depth of very close to two thous
and feet when work was temporarily

the beginning, the promises of finally
striking oil in paying quantities were
extra good and seepages and other ill
