A. Brilliant Spokane Lawyer
AN OVERDOSE OF MORPHINE
Bad Associations and an Uncontrollable
Appetite for Liquor Drove Him to a
Tragic Death His Dying Bequest.
Spokane, Wash., Aug. 26. Dissipa
tion and bad associations carried an
other brilliant Spokane attorney across
the gulf yesterday by the morphine
route. F. C. Landrum, who has been
drinking heavily for several months,
returned Sunday night from Seattle
and took a room at the Grand hotel.
At 5 o'olook this afternoon, the cham
bermaid finding the door locked, noti
fied the olerk and the door was opened.
The ,self-desroyed attorney was found
on the bed, stone dead. - Three letters
were found, one to the ooroner and one
to E. J. Dyer, cashier of the Exchange
National bank. Over his nose was a
batch of cotton, presumably saturated
with chloroform. The letter addressed
to the ooroner said:
"My name is F. C. Landrum, for
merly an attorney. ' I have voluntarily
oommitted suiode by taking about six
grains of morphine pills, which I pur
chased in Seattle yesterday. , I think
it unnecessary to hold an inquest over
my body, a. there is no question about
my death. I have been forced to do
this by business reverses, brought on
solely by my uncontrollable appetite
In a postscript dated 1:30 A. M., ap
peared the following:

Brilliant Lighting for the .position
Portland, Or., Aug. 26. Brilliant
arches of light . will supersede the
glaring aro lamps at the Portland ex
position this year. The committee on
light and power has been at work on
this project for some time, and sub
mitted a draught of plans for lighting,
with an estimate of oost, and after the
matter had been disoussed in all its
phases,-the committee was authorized
to make a oontract for the lighting,
whioh involves a large amount of work
to be, done before the ourrent can be
turned on. .
Attendance from outside the city is
expeoted to be very large this year, ex
ceeding the unprecedented attendance
of last year. , One of the surprises the
management gave the people of Port
land a year ago was frequent crowds
upon the streets, brought in by the
cheap excursions worked up by the
transportation committee. There
was then but little time in whioh to
do anything. This year, with longer
time and with the knowledge gained
hy experience, much better results will
be aooomplished. Already agents are
in the field, making arrangements for
these excursions, and they report the
most encouraging prospects for a much
larger attendance than ever before.
Now that the railroads have found out
what can be done in this line, they
will work earnestly to secure as many
and as large excursions as possible.
Thousands of strangers will be. seen
on the streets of Portland during the
month the fair is open. The commit
tee on exhibits report that nearly all
the space is already taken, and' that for
this reason they have, been compelled
to withhold space for a time from some
applicants, in order not to shut out
more valuable exhibits that may be
offered later. Not only is there this
early absorption of space, but there is
promise on the part of exhibitors that
they will make better and more inter
esting displays than ever before. There
will be great rivalry among them, to
see which shall do the most to attraot
attention and please and instruct the

PACKING FALL SALMON.
Preparations for a Large Catch In Traps
Portland, Or., Aug. 26. Prepara-'
tions are being made for packing a
large amount of fall salmon on the Co
lumbia this season. The fish . will,
however, be caught principally in
traps and wheels, as seining is too ex
pensive a method for. catching fall
salmon, and the prioes which the traps
and wheels will take will prevent gill
net men from engaging in the business
to any extent. " T ' :.
Traps for the fall fishing have been
put in about the mouth of tfce Cowlitz
in large numbers, where a few years
ago traps were not known. The gill
nets catch only the large fish, while
these traps and the wheels catch large
Parties at The Dalles are making
calculations for a large catch of fish
on and after the 10th of September,
when the olose season ends. J . . j.
The big run of fish which came into
the river near the end of July were not
nearly all caught, and the survivors
have been loafing along through the
Casoades and middle river,, ever- 'since
tne season closed, finding it very enjoy
able to be able to move without run
ning against a trap or net of some
kind. If they bad any knowledge of
the monster wheel whioh Mr. Taffe
has ready for them at The Dalles, they
would have passed up and got by there
before the end of the close season, hut
as it is Mr. Taffe is preparing to take
all, or nearly all, of them in out of the
wet. By the time they reaoh his wheel
they will be all fall fish.
COMMANDER OF THE OREGON
Captain Cook May Bare Charge of the
Washington, Aug. 26. Navy officers
regard the Oregon as one of the finest
Bhips of the American fleet. There is
quite a scramble to get command of her
by officers who have reached the grade
in the navy entitling them to command
ships of her class. Some of the ships
are sent out under command of lieutenant-commanders,
others under com
manders, but only captains are placed
in command of ships of the Oregon's
class. It is said that Captain Cook,
who has been for many years the chief
assistant of Admiral Ramsey in the
bureau of navigation of the navy de
partment, will be selected for the com
mand of the Oregon when she leaves
Washington. He is a very fine officer,
and one of the men who is destined
to make a good record if ever occasion
should require. . It was just after the
war that Captain Cook, as midshipman
or ensign, went around Cape Horn
with the old Monadnock. ., She after
wards was left on the Paoifio coast
Naval officers here never tire of say
ing nice things about the Oregon, and
it is believed that as a battleship she
will prove more effective than any of
the fleet, if she is ever brought into
action. " ,.

Insurrection Brought to an
' End by Cecil Rhodes.
HIS MISSION WAS A SUCCESS
til-Usage by Native Police and Oppres

Africa Company Lead to the Bevolt.
Buluwayo, Aug. 25. The mission
ef Cecil Rhodes to the Matabeles is re
ported to be a pronounoed success
The natives have yielded and the war
is considered at an end. Ceoil Rhodes
inspired the confidence of the Matabele
ohiefs by going among them unarmed.
The ohiefs complained that ill-usage
by the native police provoked ; the re
bellion, and Rhodes promised them
that reforms in this respect would be
inaugurated at onoe. Earl Grey, who
was appointed to administer the affairs
within the jurisdiction of tha British
South Africa Company, believes the
surrender of the natives was practically
The war with the Matabeles, whioh
began in South Africa' early in this
year, in many respects resembled the
early Indian war in Amerioa. Several
hundred settlers in the more sparsely
settled portions of Matabeleland were
murdered by natives. Survivors in
the country districts quickly gathered
in the larger towns, and existing forti
fications were garrisoned as strongly
as possible. The. natives were at first
commanded by a son of the late King
Lobengula. To the number of 20,000
they gathered on the' hilla around Bu
luwayo, the prinoipal town. To a con
siderable extent they were actuated by
a sort of religious frenzy, but other
causes are said . to have combined to
bring about the trouble. i
Chief -among these were the wrong
doings of the native police and the im
position by the South African Char
tered Company of a hut tax ; on the
43,000 huts of the natives in Matabele
land. The tax the natives sternly re
sisted for many months, but the Char
tered Cojnpany insisted upon this reve
nue being colleoted and refused to
make any exceptions. It was not until

some extent under a cloud, because of
his alleged oonneotion with the raid
into the Transvaal, conducted by Dr..
Jameson, oame to the rescue, and
started from Rhodesia with an armed
force that the.backbone of the rebellion
was broken. '
Buluwayo itself was for a time
threatened with annihilation ' by the
blaoks, but, owng to the brave defense
by its citizens and the timely advance
of the column headed by Rhodes, the
state of siege which practically existed
was broken and the Matabeles were
gradually forced baok from the hills
surrounding the metropolis of Matabe
leland to their old resorts in the parts
of the country not oooupied by Eu
ropeans. ' f ; ; 1

until it reaches the trestle, but is easily
heard. The boys started baok. The
Pritcbfcrd boy reached the end in safe

bent and then fell off before the train
came on the trestle.' : The accident
either occurred this way, or he stum
bled and fell. -

A Fight In Church,
Macon, Ga., Aug. 26. A sensation
was caused in the leading Methodist

tween Rev. Alonzo Monk, pastor of

porter of the Daily Telegraph. Adam
son reported the reverend gentleman's
sermon last Sunday, whioh was pro
nounced by the pastor to bo inoorrect.
At last night's servioe the Rev. Mr.
Monk was pretty severe on the reporter,
and reflected on him in such a manner
as to cause Adamson to resent it at the
end of the sermon. Going to the pul
pit, the young man demanded an ex
planation of the doctor's remarks. An
exchange of words angered both, where
upon they grappled each other. Dea
cons rushed forw'ard, and an exoiting
exchange of blows between them and
the reporter followed. The newspa
perman stood firm, and defended him
self as best he oould against odds.
The police were sent for. The congre
gation was greatly exoited, more than
1,000 people being present. Women
and men stood on the chairs to , watoh
the outoome. Finally order was re
stored, but the servioes were shortened
