The principal feature and the most
imHrtaut duty of the next Oregon

U. S. senate. The Portland Journal
sum up the number of HHsibilities
thus: Pulton and tieer are now most
talked alsiut, yet it doe not by any
means imply that there will ls no
other candidate. Iu fact there will
be several, and since the return of
Senator Mitchell from Washlntgon
there ha liven unwonted activity in
the interest of more than one whose
desire it is to succeed Senator Simon.
Friend of Dinger Hermann would
like to see him ill the United Slates

about. The rumor that M. A. Moody

DOESN'T LIKE CHINA.
IL B. Miller, who has been United
State Consul at Niu Cliwung, China,
for two years and a half, does not
think that jiortiou of tho Celestial
Empire a desirable place for an
American to live in.
"It's very well if a man has large
commercial interests or a good Gov
ernment OHiMon to reside there for a
few year," lie said, "but under ordi
nary circuniKtauccH an Amrcicau is
better off at dome. Society, except
that of foreign representatives, is a
myth, and extravagance of European
and Rusmau Government agents there
almost compels the American resi
dents to fall into the same methods.
It takes money to keep up with the
procession, and so the man of ordinary
income is likely to bo apjalled at the
"The Russian aro particularly ex
travagant, and with tin in cluiniiuigne
flows like water. Social functions
are frequent and costly, and lavish
expenditure is the order of the day
all the year round. "
Mr. Miller was located iu that por
tiou of North China known a Man
churia, and lie was akcd if tire Rus
sians and not the Chinese' were not
really in authority there.
"They tried to take matters into
their own hand iu Niu Chwang, " he
said, "and we had Beveral lively
clashes with them. They arrested
some of tho sailor of an American
gunboat for a breach of the peace, and
attempted to try them with tlieir own
courts. I protested against this, unci
it was Homo time beofer they would
uecedu to my request, but they finally
did so and liberated the prisoners,
after which they tendered an ajxilogy
aud were as 'nice as pie. ' We have
had no trouble on that score since."
"Do yon think the Russian will
givo up Manchuria?" "I expect they
will when we give up the Philip
pine and the British give up Egypt."
Mr. Miller, who is largely interest
ed iu the cultivation of apples in
Rogue River valley, was asked what
the prospect was for a market for
Oregon fruit in China. He said:
"When I went over there I thought
we might work up quite a demand
for Oregon fruit in China, but I must
say tho prospect i now discouraging.
When one realizes that the cost of liv
ing of the average Chinaman over
there is about two cents a day in gold,
ho can readily realizo that the average
Chinaman "can't buy many high-priced
apples. There is a wealthy class of
Chinese, but their need in this direc
tion are limited. A good many apples
nre raised ill China and in Jaiau.
These are of poor quality, but they
are made to do. "
Iu jams, however, there i a K)ssi
bility of a large business being done
with the Chinese, Mr. Miller thinks,
and a profitable trade might be work
ed up by Oregon merchants in this
Mr. Miller expect to return to Niu
Chwang ill November, but docs not
expect to retain hi position a Con
sul very long. Iu fact, from what he
said incidentally,, he has already
started preparation to hand hi ollice
over to sonio successor and return to
Oregon for good.

the Southern District of Oregon, ar
rived ill Ashland, Friday, on a tour
of inss'ction of the work of the
forest rangers and illsoet ion of the
forest reserve in this section of the

Reserve Saturday morning and gave
it a thorough looking over ami re
turned to town late last night. Early
this morning Mr. Bartrum started for
Lake of the Woods and the Pelican
bay section of his work. At Fort
Klamath he will take ick animals
and go to the Diamond Peak by way of
the old military trail, recross the Cas
cade and strike the middle fork of
the Willamette river, coming out nt
Eugene. The forest rangers are doing
splendid work in caring for the for
ests during the present year. Not
withstanding the long dry spell and
unusually large number of campers in
the mountains this year n, enticing the
timber with their camp lin s, there
have been very few destructive timlx r
tires during tho present summer. Iu
fact what tires there have ls i n of any
iiiiK)rtiinee have been otT the forest
reserve, and beyond the jui isdictiou

when the atmosphere has been so free

were raging on the south side of the
Siskiyou iu the Heaver, Grouse
and Hungry creek sections were
extinguished by the heavy rains of
last Tuesday and Thursday. There
litis ls'en additional work for the tire
rangers this year, too, for there were
only twelve of them appointed iu
this district to cover ami pat ml the

CHAS. FAIR AND WIFE KILLED
BY AN AUTO.
Devereanx., France, Aug. 14. Mr.
and Mrs. Charles Fair, Americans,
who were related to Mrs. W. K. Van
dcrbilt, Jr. (Miss Virginia Fair),
were returning to Paris from Tron
ville today when their automobile
swerved and crashed into a tree, 15
miles from here. Both were killed.
Mr. and Mrs. Fair had been staying
at Trouville during the week. They
had a very fast 45-horsopower auto
mobile, which attracted considerable
atteutiou aud with which they were
highly pleased. Mr. Fair had been
from Trouville to Paris aud back
again in one day with tho machine.
TheHcoident occurred at 2:30 o'clock
this afternoon, and almost in front of
i.n rieitenn Buisson cln aiai. ine
Fairs intended to dine and spend the
night in Paris, aud return to trou
ville for lunch tomorrow. The wife
of the gatekeeper of the chateau was
the only witness to the disaster. She
savs she noticed a big red automobile
coming along the road at a tremendous
pace. Suddenly sometliing happened
and the heavy machine slid sidewise
from the right to the left side of the
road for about CO yards. It then dash
ed up an embankment, turning a com
plete somersault aud crashing into a
big elm tree in front of the gate of
the chateau. The automobile was
completely wrecked. The front axle
was broken, and other partH of the
machine were smashed, including the
When the automobile turned over
the wife of the gatekeeper says, she
saw Mr. and Mrs. Fair thrown high
in the air and fall with a heavy thud
to the ground. The chauffeur, who
was sittine behind tho Fairs, was
precipitated into a ditch. He stag
gered to his feet, calling for help.
The gatekeeper' wifo rushed to his
assistance and aided him in extricat
ing Mr. and Mrs. Fair, who were
buried beneath tho wrecked machine,
and in the last thores of death. Both
had sustained ghastly injuries, and
were almost unrecognizable. Mr.
Fair's head had been crushed in, while
hi wife's skull was split. The
chauffeur was terribly affected at the
calamity, and seemed bereft of his
senses. M. Bunion, owner of the
Chateau Buisson du Mai, was sum
moned, and after advising this local
authorities of the accident, he ordered
the bodies of Mr. and Mrs. Fair to be
carried to the gatekeeper' lodge.
Here they now lie on mattresses and
flowers have been strewn over them.
The accident was evidently due to
the bursting of a tire. At the time it
occurred, the automobile, which was
callable of tunning 74 miles an hour,
was going at the rate of 112 miles an

Spokane, Aug. 14. Emulating the
deeds and career of the notorious con
vict, Harry Tracy, three youthful
Spokauites started out on a tour of
tlieir own last Tuesday. They are al
leged to have stolen a Winchester,
money ;uul amnmnit ion and to have
lived in a law less and irregular way
until they were picked up by the op-
Hce, and are now 111 jail, awaiting
trial on the charge of burglary. Tie-
youths are byname William Terrill,
aged II years; Charles Dickey, aged II
and a youth named Nash. The three

collect, left home Tuesday, and, not
satisfied w ith theii outfit, they broke
into a rancher's house just outside
the city limits, anil there appropriated
the sum of $!." in cash and a consider
able aiunmit of clothing anil other
Thus piovided they started out in
earnest, secured a l ille, by the ft, so
it is claimed, and proceeded as far as
I'oeur d'AIene City, Idaho. They
soon tired of the exjierieiice, however,
und returned Sokanowards, where they
were picked up by otllcers.
It apis-ars that the oldest of the
Iirty took iKissossion of the rifle, and
statini: that he was no longer " Hill"

RIG TIMBER DEAL FAILS.
One of the biggest timber and lum
ber deals that has yet been attempted
in this section was about ready for
the final signatures to the papers mak
ing the transfer of the property, last
week, when some little ami unim
portant thing hap'iied that caused
the negotiations which have been
ponding for several months to be sus
IH iided, aud the matter is now off.
Messrs. Tucker and Palmer, from
Tacoma, representing a large amount
of Iowa capital seeking investment,
had completed all arrangements for
the pun-huso of the timber lands on
the Klamath, and the saw mill plant
at Klamathou, owned by Cook ot
Sons, and the logging R. R. up bet
Klamath oorate'd by Lindley &
Mason, as well as the large Hopkins
tract of sugar pine timber land in the
Jc liny creek section, and were expect
ing to finish the railroad mid further
exploit the property. It is said that
the papers were all ready at Yr. ka
for the signature of the Cooks to the
deal, w hen on account of some minor
and very trilling details the elder Mr.
Cook concluded not to put his name
to the transfer so the b ul w:s off.
The Tacoma men who were ex
pecting to purchase the property, left
for tlieir homes, Friday night, much
disappointed iu not succeeding in
acquiring the proiierty. It is in
timated that there is a iKissibilitv of
the negotiations of the deal
