COLLIDE AT SEA.
Ocean Liner Meet in a Dense Fog, and
Twenty Lives are Lost.
Norfolk, Va., May 7. A collision at
sea that cost the lives of 20 or more
people and the sinking of tbe Clyde
steamship Saginaw by tbe Old Domin
ion steamship Hamilton occurred be
tween Winter quarters lightship and
Fenwick island lightship, oh tbe Vir
ginia coast at 4 :40 o'clock this morning.
A dense fog settled along the ehore
shortly after nightfall, and while going
through the fog at reduced speed tbe
Hamilton crashed into the Saginaw's
side about 20 feet from tbe stern.
The fog whistles of both vessels were
distinctly heard by each other for sev
eral minutes before the collision oc
curred. According to Captain Boaz, of
the Hamilton, bis ship was making
about nine miles an hour, and the Sag
inaw about ten. Tbs fog was to thick
that objects a ship's length away were
invisible, and when the two crafts hove
in sight of each other, bow on, there
Was but a moment's interim before they
The inrush ina water caused the Sagi
naw to settle rapidly at the stern, and
the impetus of the Hamilton took her
out of sight of tbe crippled vessel.
The engines, already reversed, were
put full steam to the rear, and tbe
Hamilton circled the scene of the wr ck,
at the same time lowering two lifeboats.
There was consternation among the pas
sengers oi tbe Old Dominon ship, and
tbe first thought was fcr their safety,
but as soon as it was discovered that
the ship was uninjured save that some
bow plates were s'ove in all efforts were
directed to the rescne of those on tbe
COHPILATION OP INDIAN TREATIES.
Work Alto Covers Laws, Executive Or
ders and Proclamations.
Washington, May 6. The govern
ment printing office bas just issued two
quarto volumes entitled, "Indian
Affairs, Law and Treaties," compiled
by direction of congress by Charles L.
Kappler, a clerk in the senate commit
tee on Indian affairs. The volumes
contain every treaty made by the Unit
ed States with the Indians, and all tbe
laws, executive orders and proclama
tions relating to the Indians up to De
cember 1, 1902, together with statistics
of tribes, trust funds, etc.
The commissioner of Indian affairs,
in his annual reports, has urged fcr
some years that such a compilation be
made for the reason that the laws and
orders relating to tbe Indians were
scattered through a great number of
documents, making it exceedingly diffi
cult to De sure that one bad before it
all legislation on any given question
re'ative the Indians. The present
compilation is indexed carefully, and
in its general arrangement follows tbe
form of the statutes at large.
PEAK OVERHANOS TOWN.
People Warned to Keep Away From Tur
Vancouver, B. C, May 6. A com
mittee of the board of trade examined
Turtle mountain this morning and
decided to warn people" to keep at a
safe distance for at least a week so
that the town will be absolutely de
fer ted for a time at least. The reason
for this conclusion is that an immense
peak of Turtle mountain is now over
hanging the southern part of the town.
Its fall might destroy the remaining
buildinci in tbe town, although exper
ienced mining men believe that another
slide would spread over the valley, de
stroying tbe buildings of the coal com
pany at the base of the mountain but
not overwhelming tbe town proper.
Irish Immigration Increasing.
New York, May 7. Great increase
in immigration from Ireland is shown
by the record of tbe first four months
of this year, compared with tbe same
period of other recent years. Statistics
given out today show the arrival of
8,206 Irish immigrants for the fonr
months ending April 30, against 4,002
for the same time last year. Ail other
nationalities which come here show a
larger per oentage of males tban fe
males, but of the Irish coming this year
about 70 per cent are females. Many
are girls in-their teens.
Closing of Convent Causes Outbreak.
Paris, May 7. An outbreak occurred
today in the vicinity of Nancy, where
the authorities, npon proceeding to
close the convent of the Oblate Fathers,
met with lively resistance from the
crowd, wbich received them with tbe
usual hostile manifestations. A strong
torce of gendarmes and cavalry was
called in, and was obliged to carry two
barricades before it could force an en
trance to the building. During the
fighting a number were injured.
Monitor Leaves St, Louis.
Washington, May 7. Tbe navy de
partment was informed today of tbe de
parture from St. Louis for Cairo, 111.,
of the monitor Arkansas, which was
present at the exposition dedicatory ex

HAPPENINGS HERE IN OREGON
GOOD WORK OP BUREAU.
Harriman Llnta are Turning Thought
of Thousands to Oregon.
G. M. McKin'ney, who has charge of
the immigration department of the
Harriman lines, met with the real es
tate dea ers of Salem to discuss matters
relating to bis work. He explained tbe
plan of bis department and talked with
the real estate men concerning the
methods of advertising that they must
rely upon to draw immigration to this
state. That Oregon in now the most
widely talked of state in the Union is
the declaration he made, after ' telling
how the resource 1 of this state have
been advertised through the immigra
tion bureau. As an indication of what
has been done for the Willamette vat
ley, be said t'.at since bis department
bas been working between 4,000 and
5,000 one-way railway tickets have
been used by Eastern peop e, who came
to the valley and did not go awy
He said that the immigration bureau
of tbe Harriman lines is the most per
fect enterprise of the kind ever organ
ized in the United States, and that it
retches in tbe most effective manner
those persons who are the most desira
ble immigrants. Within seven months
after be began work his department
bad p'aced the literature advertising
this state into the hends of 2,000,000
people. The bureau has placed in the
field six lecturers, with stereopticon
views showing scenes illustrating tbe
resources and industries of Oregon, and
thee lecturers are addressing Eastern
audiences four evenings a ween. Six
immigration agants in the different
lections of the midd'e We 4 are giving
their whole time to disseminating in
formation regarding tbii state, super
vising the. distribution of literature to
tliose who aie most likely to come to
tli is state, and aiding scores of Eastern
real estate men who are encouraging
By means of this vigorous policy tbe
people of the Eastern states bave been
interested in Oregon, with the result
that there is more talk of this state as a
deeirabie place for home-seekers than
the.e is of any other state.
Bridge Over Santlam.
At a mass meeting of Linn county
farmers held in school district No. 114
recently some resolutions asking the
county court to rebuild Sanderson's
bridge were adopted and sent to tbe
court. This bridge was carried away
by the floods of last January. It was
one of the longest bridges supported by
Linn county and spanned the Santiam
river, connecting this portion of the
county with that rich section known as
the forks of the Santiam.
Plenty of Oold but Little Silver.
Clackamas county officers report an
unusual scarcity of silver. Treasurer
Cahill sa) s gold pieces, in denomina
tions of $20, were never befoie ars plen
tiful as thev are at this time, and he
finds it troublesome to keep on hand a
sufficient amount of silver with which
to make change. No reason is assigned
for this condition, save that it indicates
in a suostantial way a greater degree
of prosperity among all classes.
Wool In riarlon County Pool.
From information produced at the
Marion county woolgrowers' associa
tion meeting, it seems probable that
the quantity of wool controlled by the
pool this year will be nearly double
that of last year. Tbe soliciting com
mittee bas not yet completed its work,
but thus far 50 members bave been
secured, and it is expected 4hat the
total amount of wool represented will
be from 76,000 to 100,000 pounds.
Survey of the McKenzle.
Professor McAlister, who is at the
head of the University of Oregon me
chanical department, lias completed ar
rangements for a hydiographical su vey
of tbe McKenzie river this summer.
The survey will be made for the pur
pose of determining the water power of
the river with a view of locating the
points where eiect ic plants and the
like may be established to the best ad
vantage. Water Seeps from Ditch. .
Tbe irrigating -ditch belonging to
Henry E. Ankeny, of Eugene, and Mrs.
J. T. Henley, of Klamath county, runs
through tbe town of Klamath Falls,
and the village authorities have com
menced suit in the circuit court to se
cure an injunction against tbe owners,
alleging that the property is a nuisance
on account of injury from seepage.
New Road to Crater Lake.
W. S. A rant, superintendent of
Crater Lake national park, reports that
he will have the new road leading to
tbe lake ready for use by August 1. It
will be shorter and have fewer bumps
and steep grades than the old one It
will enable journey from Fort Kla
math to tbe lake, 25 miles, in 24

WILL FIOHT THE RESERVE.
Southern Oregon Citizens Readily Sign
A zealous protest is being made by
the citizens of Josephine aud Curry
counties against the establishment of
tbe great forest reserve, embracing
nearly ball of Curry and all of Western
and Southern Josephine, as wellas part
of Douglas. Josephine would be
blocked in, so to speak, and Curry
would be placed in a position whereby
its advancement would be a. matter ol
Just at this time, when prosperity
seems to be heading this way, capital
is becoming interested, new people
c.niing in, and new industries being
established, it is a hard blow both to
Josephine and Curry, so the citizens
claim who are opposing the measure,
to establish a forest reserve of so vast
dimensions The argumt nt made that
streams are drying up by reason of tbe
removal of trees, seems not well found
ed. But few, if any trees, bave been
removed in that section, not enough by
any means to affect the flow of water in
the croeka and streams. Even the
miners, who need tbe water the most,
oppose the establishment of the reserve.
Petitions, begging that the matter of
estab isliing the reserve bj reconsid
ered, or that the tract be not with
drawn, are being circulated in J seph
ine and Curry coun ies, and are being
State Labor Federation.
The first annual convention of the
Oregon state federation of labor met in
La Grande this week. About 100 dele
gates were present. The attendance
was neither as large nor as represent
ative as was hoped. By far the larger
part of those in tbe convention were
from Portland, while Astoria Salem,
Albany, Ashland, Baker City and Pen
dleton have from one to three delegates
each. Those in attendance are very
much in earnest in their desire to take
up in tbe convention some of the knotty
questions confronting organized labor
and determine a course of action in re
gard to them.
Little Change la Herd Law.
Aside from the amendment of the
law regarding the running of stock in
Multnomah county, no change wbb
made by the last legislature in the
herd law. Section 61 of the new road
law prohibits the herding of stock upon
tbe highways, thereby obstructing them
with earth, stones, or other debris, but
his section does not prohibit herding
stock on the highways so long as there
is no obstruction remaining more than
Clackamas County Valuation.
The assessable valuation of all Clack
amas "County is being doubled by
Assessor Nelson, who is at work on the
1903 roll. Assessor Nelson reports
that heretofore in this county property
bas been assessed at not to exceed 35
per cent of its real value. This year
it is being listed at double the former
valuations. The amount of the tax
under this plan will be about (he
same, since it will be cut down in pro
portion to the increase in the property

Bid COAL POOL FORMINQ.
Oates and Frick are After Lands ef the
South McAlester, I. T., May 6. Big
financiers of the East, headed by H. C.
Frick, of Pittsburg, and John W.
Gates, of Chicago, are forming a pool
to get possession of all the coal lands
in the Choctaw nation. There are
440,000 acres in the Choctaw nation,
which will be sold at public auction
and tbe proceeds divided among the
Choctaws according to tbe act of con'
gress. The price agreed npon by the
rnclt-Uates syndicate is $25 per acre,
It is not the intention of the syndi
cate to disturb the present mining
companies, either large or small, or
their coal leases. All that tbe Eastern
financiers want is the undeveloped coal
lands. They will let the companies
now mining coal buy the land covered
Dy tneir leases, hut no mere, if some
of the independent mining concerns
are not able to buy the land which they
now have leased the syndicate will buy
it for them and allow them to operate
it on a royalty of 8 cents a ton, as they
are now paying the Indians.
borne of tbe men in the syndicate
will purchase the land for development,
while others will hold it for speculative
purposes. Frick is to get the land
along the Fort Smith & Western rail
road, which he owns. Gates wants a
tract of land in the eastern part of the
Choctaw country , which carries a qual
ity of coal especially suited for coking
purposes. George Gould is to get a
large tract in the vicinity of South
HAWAII IS CRITICISED.
Expert on Leprosy Holds Its Treatment
of Disease All Wrong.
Honolulu, May 6. The legislative
committee, which visited the leper set
tlement has made its report, submitting
with its onw findings a long and sensa
tional statement made Dy Dr. A. L.
Alvarez, a physician, wbc went to
Molokai with the committee as expert.
The doctor very seerely criticises
Hawaii's system of segregation and
makes the statement that out of 21
supposed lepers examined by him some
time ago 16 were entirely free from the
disease and should be at liberty. The
segregation system, the report eays,
leads those who have leprosy and their
relatives to conceal the fact, in order
that they may avoid being sent to
Molokai. Dr. Alvarez approves the
system of segregation in vogue in Nor
way. The legislative committee recom
mends the establishment of a large
hospital on the island of Oahu, and the
employment of Dr. Alvarez as physi
cian in charge. It is also 'recommend
ed that a medical commission be se
cured to go to the settlement and ex
amine all the doubt'ul cases, releasing
those who have not the disease.
POLICE TO SCENE OF STRIKE.
Italian Workmen on New York Subway
Nw York, May 6. The strike of
Italian rock drillers and diggers took a
more serious turn in the Bronx today,
50 policemen being sent to keep order
along tbe excavation for water mains
where men are working in the strikers'
places. 1 he police were picxeted along
the excavation and all Italians near it
and not working were ordered to move.
Bands of Italians, however, marched by
