An east-bound Union Paoifio pas
' senger train was held up a short dis
tance east of Uintah, Utah,, near the
mouth of Weber canyon, and about
eight miles from Ogden. No passen
gers were molested, the robbers con
fining their operations to the mail and
express oars.' The baggage and express
oars were unooupled by the robbers and
run ahead of the tsain a few hundred
yards and both oars broken open. The
robbers failed to open the safe in the
express oar. Railway officials say the
booty seoured was a few mail bags, but
as a great portion of the mail was cor
respondence between banks, inolosing
exchanges and remittances, and always
a good proportion of cash, the loss is
. supposed to be of consequence.
Foreign Grain Crop.
The European crop reports of the
agricultural department, issued by the
chief statistician at Washington, shows
that the crop of Great Britain has been
somewhat reduced in the north and in
Sootland by the persistent wet weather
Of September, whioh practioally ruined

Ceoil Rhodes. Earl Grey, adminis
trator the British South Afrioa Com pany,
and other offloials had a final un
derstanding with the Matabele ohiefs.
Mr. Rhodes announoed to them that,
after yielding up their arms and those
of their number who had been guilty
of murdering whites, the Matabeles
must looate themselves in speoified dis
tricts of the country. The prinoipal
ohiefs would be held responsible' and
would receive monthly salaries from
the British Chartered South Africa
Company. The chiefs all agreed to
this proposition, and it is believed the
whole Matabele trouble is now at an
end. 1 . 1 -

The end of the highbinder days in
San ' Franoisoo has oome. A dozen
headquarters of the hatohet-men were
destroyed, and the work of destruction
will be continued. The agent of the
oonsul-general overthrew the josses,
broke down the signs and dismantled
the headquarters where the hatohet
men have been wont to meet, and the
Celestial desperadoes are now homeless
and hunted. This outoome is welcomed
by all in San Franoisoo, for another
virulent outbreak was expeoted at any
time in San Franoisoo.
Held Up by Women.
Colonel Henry Spielman, of New

Statistical Agent Wileox in
" ' .''' California.
INDUSTRY GROWING IMPORTANT
An ! Elaborate and A ccurate Report of
' the Statu of the FUhlng Industry
tq Be Obtained for the Commission.
San Franoisoo, Oct. 21. William
A. Wilcox, df. Washington, D. C,
statistical agent of the United States
commission of fish and fisheries, has
arrived from Oregon and Washington
for the purpose of preparing a statis
tical report of the fishing industry on
this ooast. He has been industriously
engaged in the pursuit of bis investiga
tions and . inquiries in Oregon , and
Washington several weeks, and will
devote the 'next month or two to the
work of gathering data oonerning the
fish and fisheries of California.
"Mr. Wilcox says that for several
years 'past the fisheries of the we. t
ooast of the United States had been
growing in importance to such an ex
tent that the United States fish com
mission bad deemed it advisable and
highly important that an elaborate and
aoourate report of the status of the fish
ing industry here be obtained, and he
has been sent here for that purpose
His report it calculated to prove of
great benefit to the commercial fishing
industries of . the ooast for the reason
that it will show the need of more
batoheries and a more, thorough stock
ing of the streams and inland waters of
the ooast states.
He says it is highly probable that
the United States fish commission will
decide to establish half a dozen new
batoheries in California before long
for the reason that the fishing industry
of the Paoifio ooast states, including
Alaska, has grown until it ranks next
to those of the New England and Mid
dle Atlanito states in extent and im
portance, while the value of the fishery
produots is greater than in the South
Atlantio, Gulf and Great Lakes states
Magnetic Power In Aerial Navigation.
Boston, Oot, 21. An entirely new
sohem'e- looking to aerial navigation
and flight has been suggested by A. W.
Nitsoh, of this city. It is such a decid
ed departure from all the propositions
heretofore advanoed for utilizing the
atmosphere for purposes of transit as
to command serious attention from
scientists and others to whom it has
Nitsoh is of the opinion that the
subtle magnetio attraction that holds
the needle of the mariner's oompass
with unswerving fidelity to the north
can be utilized in a magnified form for
man's convenience, profit and pleasure.
Accepting the theory advanoed that
vast deposits of magnetio ore exist in
the immediate vioinity of the north
pole, and form there oome the magnetio
ourrents distributed over the globe, and
that it is the attraction of this thus far
unbounded field that draws with magio
power the needle of the comprsB, there
is nothing, as be looks at it, to prevent
its being made of real service. "I be
lieve," said he, "that magnets oould be
suspended in the air of sufficient foroe
to counteract the resistance of the air,
overcome the adverse currents and
move more or less rapidly toward the
north." -'"-' 3
, Got the Best of a Mob.
Westohester, Pa., Oot. 21. Edward
Brown, the negro who attaoked Mrs.
Thomas Johnson in a suburb of Coats
ville night before last, has been landed
in jail. When the offloer took the cul
prit to the railway station a mob sur
rounded him and it was with the great
est difficulty that he suooeeded in plac
ing the soared negro safely on board
the oar. Before the train started
stones were burled through the oar
windows thick and faast, and the pas
sengers became terror-strioken and
rushed in all directions to escape the
flying missiles. One man was struok
on the head by a stone and the whole
side of his face was laid open, while a
number of others reoeived slight cuts
and bruises about the head and body.
. Good News for California Farmer..
San Franoisoo, Oot. 21. There was
a very lively day on the floor of the
local produce exchange. Wheat is ad
vancing on heavy orders from shippers.
Three ships have been laden with
wheat for Caloutta so far this month,
and continued large purchases for ship
ment in November and Deoember to
Australia were also made. December
wheat advanoed today 4 cents, and
May -6 cents. Deoember closed
strong at $1.30, and May at $1.88.
Barley was also strong today, having
advanoed from 66 1 for low point of
September to 87 cents high point to
day. If grain continues to advance,
California farmers will enjoy a season
of unexampled prosperity. ...
Protected the Miner.

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Downing;, Hopkins & Co.' Review of
Portland, Or., Oot 21. It basal
ways been the olaim of old traders that
numerous fluctuations increases specu
lation. There is no lack of the latter,
but the former does not appear to come
to the front with , any degree of free
dom, although there has been a decid
ed improvement from the dullness that
prevailed thirty days ago. There was
enough aotion last week to suit any
trader. Wheatvnoved within a rane
of 7 oents, and to make the situation
more favorable to holders, dosing
figures were within a fraotion of the
highest point. :
There is a good tone to everything,
and the tendency is gradually upward.
The lowest prices this year have been
seen, and the backers of both political
parties claim that whichever way the
election goes prices are bound to ad
vance. There will be many sharp
breaks from the bulges, and the opera
tors who do not take too large lines
and realize profits on all good bulges,
and buy back on the deoltaes, will
make a good deal ot money. We have
enough of everything to supply our
wants, and a good surplus of grain and
hogs. The foreign situation is so
strong that we will have a good mar
ket at remunerative prioes for all that
we can spare. The orops of feed stuffs
in the United Kingdom are shorter
than for years, and they are taking our
corn and oats to make up the defici
ency. Large purohases have already
been made at Chicago and at the sea
board of corn and oats, and bur exports
are the largest in years, and give evi
dence of exoeeding all records.
New bull factors are consequently
ooming to the front with surprising
regularity, especially in wheat, and it
has a tendency to create the impres
sion in the minds of some operators tbet
there is some mysterious force at work
in the market, as it has lately been
helped at the most opportune moments.
Our crops of winter and spring were
damaged at a time when they gave the
best promise. Russian farmers in
many districts were also unfortunate,
as their favorable prospects have been
out down.-. Now there are reports oom
ing in that India's crop has suffered
from drought, although there have been
good rains in a few sections. The
English colony in Caloutta is buying
wheat in San Francisco for shipment to
that port Australia also oontinues to
buy wheat there. . Liverpool is evi
dently working the wheat for Calcut
ta, as they have the information in ad
vanoe of other points. -
Stocks of wheat in European ports
are 32,000,000 bushles less than last
year, but the quantity on passage is 1,
100,000 bushels more, having inoreased
6,000,000 bushels during September,
Afloat stocks are also larger at this
time than in five years, with the excep
tion of 1898, when they were 5,000,000
bushels more. Stooks in store are the
lightest in years, but it should be re
membered that the tendenoy on the part
of foreigners has been to work with
lighter supplies. This makes the
foreign situation strong. The world's
available supply is the smallest in five
TWO CHILDREN KILLED.
Another Fatally Wounded Thrown
From a Wag-on In Wasco County.
Arlington, Or., Oot. 21. Word was
received here today of a terrible acci
dent that ooourred near Thirty-Mile,
in this oounty yesterday. A span of
wild horses that were hitohed to a
wagon, in which were the wife and
children of Will Davis, ran away,
overturning the wagon. Two of the
children were killed, and another fa
tally injured. In their flight, the
horses ran against a tree, breaking the
wagon tongue, and turning the wagon
over endwise. Mr. Davis was not in
the wagon, but bad tied the horses to
a fence, from which they broke away.

Wheat Took a Jump.
Chicago, Oct. 21. Wheat made a

CLOSE OF AN EPISODE.
President Diax Decorated By the King
- of the Belgian.
City of Mexioo, Oot. 20. An event
marking the close of a great historic
episode ocourred yesterday, when the
Belgian minister, in ' the -name of , hit
majesty, Leopold II, king of the Bel
gians, bestowed on President Diaz as a
mark of the honorable regard in which
the president of Mexico is held in Bel
gium. The significance of this act liei
in the fact that King Leopold is the
brother of the late Empress Carlotta,
of Mexico, and his bestowal of the or
der upon the president of the rebuplic
is an indication that the Maximillian
episode is now definitely closed. Presi
dent Diaz has, as a matter of public
policy, and as a means of drawing all
parties and factions together and oblit
erating the past, bestowed high officei .
on distinguished adherents of the late
empire, and has thus brought about an
era of good feeling and fraternal senti
