. The Daly-West mine at Park City,
Utah, has been ordered closed down.
The Diamond mine at Eureka, Kev.,
has been closed down, and the Old Jor
dan and Galena atBingham, Utah, have
also been ordered closed. This is owing
to tne tall in silver.
During the trial of three young
thieves at San Bernardino rjatnrdav it
was developed that a number of boys of
tliguiands, lrom iu to 10 years 01 age,
had an organization called the "Black
Diamond," which carried on a BVBtem of
petty roonenes. ine noys were eager
waders of cheap sensational literature.
As a practical solution of the strin-
geney of gold in the money market it is !
proposed at San Francisco that, if the
eiieral government would immediately
withdraw all restrictions to hydraulic
mining, California before winter wonld
lie in a position to contribute over 5,
OOO,0UOin gold. The proposition from
interviews with prominent mining men
is considered entirely feasible and op
portune. The rabies are now epidemic among
animals of all kinds at Quijotoa, A.
Several persona have had narrow escapes,
one man saving bimseli from a frenzied

A formal discussion of the proposed
"World's Fair in San Francisco was held
recently at the Palaee Hotel, prepara
tory to a general meeting iwer. trorr
Comely and Architect Bennett, who ac
companied him from Chicago, were
present. Herr Cornely recited his ex
periences in the past with expositions,
and toid the gentlemen that it was nec
essary for San Francisco to take some
action at once on the proposition to have
the fair, for, he said, 4,000 foreign ex
hibitors in Chicago, who had sent him
thither to represent them, were anxious
to know ae soon as possible whether the
fair would be held there; otherwise they
would send their exhibits to Antwerp,
where an exhibition is to be held imme
diately after the World's Fair. He also
assured the gentlemen that they could
certainly count on all the foreign exhib
itors eoming there, and -furthermore, if
it were necessary, they would gladly pay
for space for their exhibits and also pay
their own transportation.
It is now considered almost certain
that, contrary to the usual custom, the
canneries along the Columbia river will
lie compelled to pack salmon as far
along as October, on account of the
great falling off in operations this year.
Fall salmon are all of the silver-side
species, and are considered second grade.
but, as there is no doubt that the July
pack, however large, will leave a dis
astrous shortage, this is the only wav
out of the difficulty. The total business
for the whole season to date is lSE,2Wi
cases, and up to June S last year the
flimres were 184,917 cases. All the can
neries are fully 50 per cent behind their
ordinary records. Even the gillnets,
which no to two weeks ago were meet
ing with extraordftiary success, have
followed in the wake of the traps and
seines and are now catching next to
nothing. The continued nigh cold
water is no doubt mainly accountable
for tliis state of tilings. Eleven large
traps the other morning caught twenty
five small salmon between them, and
' the whole of the seines together have
not brought in more than .ten tons of
fish since the season started. The short
age has already affected the circulation
oi money in Astoria by close on $300,000,
and :w less men are being employed
now than last yaar.

Assistant Secretary Reynolds of the
Interior Department has made a pension
decision which will become welcome
news to a large number of women who
ministered to wounded soldiers in the
hospitalB during the late war. They are
to be placed on the pension rolls. The
question arose upon a communication
from the Commissioner of Pensions as
to whether those women who superin
tended the diet of the sick and wounded
soldiers are entitled to pensions. Under
the act's nrovisions Assistant Secretary
Reynolds holds these persons are entitled
The Collector of Customs at El Paso.
Tex., has been instructed by Assistant
Secretary Spaulding to discontinue at
once the Dracticoi admitting sulphides
of silver from Mexico without consular
invoice and in future not to admit silver
bullion from Mexico exceeding $100 in
value, alleged to be imported as money,
unless accompanied bv consular invoice,
unless the bullion is shown by the ship
per's declaration, made before the con
sular officer at the port of shipment, to
be forwarded as money or tne medium
of exchange at a fixed value per ounce,
and not ae merchandise.
They are after fraudulent nensioners.
A list comprising the names of a number
of nensioners recommended by Commis
sioner Lochren to be dropped from the
pension rolls lias been banded to oecre
tarv Hoke Smith, and he has approved
the recommendations. It has been found
upon investigation by the pension bu
reau that the persons named are for va
rious reasons not entitled to draw pen
sions. The work of examining the rolls
with a view to the detection of fraud
will be prosecuted with vigor, and at the
same time tne current issues will be care
fully scrutinized with the same object.
Secretary Smith and Commissioner
Lochren while prosecuting this work re
new the assurances previously given that
put as much care will be exercised to
secure pensions tor tnose wno are enti
tled to them under the law as will be
used to prevent fraud.
Attorney-General Olney has decided
that the appropriations made by the act
of Conerees approved August 6, 1BICJ, in
aid of the World's Fair, including the
appropriation for the government ex
hibit, are as available now as before the
decision of the Circuit Court ol Appeals
permanently opening the World's Fair
Sundays, with the single exception that
no more monev ought to be paid the il-
linois corporation known as the World's
Columbian Exposition. The grounds
for the opinion are that Congress meant
that the exposition as a whole should be
closed Sunday. It did not, however, un
dertake to pass a law to that effect, but
contented itself with making certain ap-
propriations conditional, not upon the
fact of Sunday-closing, but upon the
Illinois corporation agreeing to the
proposition of Sunday-closing, so that
regulations to that effect might be made
by tne government, jtiepresentatives oi
the World's Columbian Commission, the
Illinois corporation, did agree to the
proposition. Proper rules were made
by the Columbian Commission, and the
condition upon which the appropriations
referred to were made must be regarded
as fully satisfied.
Five days, beginning with October 20,
have been designated as Veterans' day at
the fair. -
The New York Bun informs a eorre
spondenj that it requires $2,000 and
three months' time to see the World's

to go West on those terms.
The poetoffice on the World's Fair
grounds at Chicago will be left open
Sunday hereafter for the purpose of
giving the needed mail facilities. This
must be regarded as a concession on the
part of the government, as the working
postoffice on the fairgrounds has always
been maintained as a part of the exhibit
of the Postoffice Department and is
therefore a part of the government
The World's Fair officials authorize

Unless the unexpected should happen,
there will be a dairy exhibit at the

nouncement, which was issued by Chief
Buchanan of the department of agri
culture was received with thanksgiving
by some 1,600 exhibitors, who for the
past two months have been compelled
to submit to exasperating delays and
financial losses by the failure of the ex
position company to furnish facilities
lor displaying their products. The chief
cause of complaint was the absence of
any kind of refrigerator service, Bnd the
promise is now made tliat this matter
will be reclined at once.
