ing here shortly after midnight, and by
daylight the storm had reached the pro
portions of a cloudburst. The North

(lood Feeling Toward Foreigners Broken
by Recent Execution.
Pekin, Aug. 6. China is witnessing
a return to the conditions which fol
lowed the coup d'etat of 1898. Politi
cal discussion among the Chinese
which increased during the imperial
court's -recent policy of friendliness to
ward foreignera has euddonly stopped.
The plan of the dowager empress to
trerify the reformers by the execution
of Shen Chien, which occurred last Fri
day, has been unsuccessful. All tbe
liberal Chinese, particularly thote who
have been associated with the reform
ers, are in the greatest fear of arrest
and it is difficult to find a Chinaman
who is willing to mention politics or
Friday's tragedy, although the latter is
about the only topic of conversation
among the trusted friends. The offic
ials are particularly dumb.
Tbe affair is a disappointment to
(he foreigners, who had hoped that the
empress dowager's association with
the ladiea of the legations would have
a civilizing influence. Prince Su, the
most liberal of the Mancha princes, is
reported to have risked his office by
opposing the execution of Shen Chien.

tages of Hawaii to the outside world,
besides catering to the interests torn
fort of visitors who arrive here.
The merchants' associatin has cabled
Secretary Root, of the war department,
guaranteeing a constant supply of coal
for army posts and that troops sent to
the Philippines be hereafter brought
via Honolulu.
Options on three steamers available
'or government ubc aa revenue cutters,
have been sent to Washington by E.
R. Stackable, collector of the port of
Honolulu. This action was taken in
accordance with instructions received
some time since, the war department
being anxious to secure a vessel suit
able for ita officers in Hswaii.

Yosemite Valley, Cal., Aug. 5. A
big forest fire ia raging tonight just out

the Philippine islands are organizing

a farce. Schooners laden with centra-
band goods have no difficulty la "run

Illegal Immigrants.
For the Information of all concern
ed in Oregon Governor Chamberlain
has made public a letter received by
him from the department of state at
Washington, D. C, calling attention
to the new provisions of the United
States naturalization laws. These
new provisions took effect July 3,

valid, a court record of naturaliza
tion must show that the person nat
uralized is not opposed to all organ
ized government nor affiliated with
any organization so opposed; that he
does not advocate the unlawful as
saulting or killing of officers of the
government; that he has not violated
any of the provisions of the said act
to regulate the immigration of aliens
and that he has complied with the
terms of previous acts on the subject
of naturalization.
The new act also requires that
every certificate of naturalization
shall specifically recite that the pro
visions of this and previous acts have
been complied with, and If It falls In
any particular it Is null and void. The
act making the additional regulations
was approved on March 3.

Escaped Folsom Convicts Ambush and
Sboot Three of Posse.
Placerville, Cai., Aug. 3. A desper
ate fight between a band of five of the
escaped Folsom convicts and a party of
six militiamen, who were following a
freah trail of the convicts, took place
tbia evening just at dutk on a hillside
near the Grand Victory mine, and, aa
a result of tbe conflict, two ol (he mi
litiamen, namej Rutherford and Jones,
were killed and a third member of tbe
posse, a man named Dill, will prob
ably die of his wounds, aa he waa ahot
through the lungs.
The convicts were bidden in the
thick brush which covers the hill, and
tbe manhuntera happened upon them
moBt nneipecttdly. The convicts, who
were well armed with rifles, fired a vol
ley into the posse, with the result
above stated.
The other member.) of the poste
opened fire on the convicts, and the
survivors ef tbe tittle band are firm in
their belief that at least two members
of the convict gang were wounded.
The news of the conflict soon spread,
and messengers were dispatched to this
place for reinforcements.
A post-e under the leadership of
Sheriff Boequit is now on the aiene of
the conflict, but, aa it ia dark, it is im
possible to locate the convicts, who
have the advantage of position, and
could pick of tbe members of tne joa:e
if a concentrated attack waa made upon
them. Sheriff Boequit and his advis
ers are considering tbe feasibility of
setting the brush on fire and foicing
tbe convicts to surrender or at least dis
close their exact position.
Sheriff Bosquit'a posse now numbers
ISO men, but tbe situation is so criti
cal that no one will approach cloce
enough to the supposed hiding place of
the convicts to ascertain the exact con.
dition of affairs. So far the bodies of
Rutherford and Jones, wbo are mem
bers of Company II, Second infantry,
N. G. C, have not been tecovered,
though it is positive that the men are

to succeed Leo XIII, now reigns at the
vatcan and over the Cutholiic world aa
Pi is X. Tonight all Rome is illumi

quently as one of the many cardinals
who might be taken np aa a comprom
