Empresa of India Collides With a Chi

Hong Kong, Aug. 20. The Canadian
Pacific steamer Empress of India, from
Vancouver, fi. C, July 27, and Yoko
hama, Agunst 10, for Hong Kong, col
lided ne r this pore today with the Chi
nese cruiser Huang Tai. The warship
sank an hour after the collision. The
Empress of India saved 170 of the crew
of the cruiser. Tb) captain of the
Huang Tai, who refused to leave his
ship, and 13 of her crew were drowned.
The Empress of India was badly dam
The Huang Tai was a tender to the
naval engineering college of the South
ern Chinese squadron at Nanking.
She was of 2110 tons displacement, 260
feet long, 36 feet beam and drew 20
feet of water. The cruiser was built in
England. Her armament consisted of
three seven-inch Krupp guns; seven 40
pounders and six small rapid fire guns,
and was fitted with two torpedo tubes.
She had a enmpement of 300 men.
Blame la on the Cruiser.
Montreal, Aug. 20, In an official
explanation of the collision between
the steamer Empresa of India and the
Chinese cruiser Huang Tai, the Cana
dian Pacific railway officials say the
two vessels were running parallel
courses about midnight, when, without
warning, the captaiB of the Chinese
cruiser suddenly tried to cross the bow
of the Empress of India. The letter's
captain immediately maneuvered so
that the collision whicn be knew
would be the result should be a glanc
ing one. The bow of the cruiser slid
alongside the Empress, but the star-
board, propeller of the Empress caught
the cruiser and injured her so badly
tnat she sank in a few seconds.
ARMY WANTS PLACE.
Holds That Some Qeneral Should Be on
Washington, Aug. 20. There is
good deal of speculation in army cir
cles here upon the effect of impending
change in the war department. Nat
urally, attention is directed mainly to
ward the Philippines, where active con
struction work remains to be done.
This fact, it is assumed, lies at the bot
tom of the president's selection of Gov
ernor Ta ft as successor to Mr. Root.
That Secretary Taft and Lieutenant
Governor Wright, who is expected to
succeed Taft, will be able to carry for
ward without break the civil work be
wn by Secretary Root and Governor
Taft is taken for gi anted.
Less clear Is the prospect for the
purely military service that remains
to be done in the archipelago under the
new regime. One of the most import
ant subjects for consideration by the
new general staff of the army concerns
military affairs in the Philippines,
which should be provided in the way
of transportation, centralization and
specific administration, with especial
view to prompt and effective action in
case of an uprising too large to be
handled by any but federal troops.
In private conversation more than
one officer of rank has expressed the
opinion that it would be wise for the
administration, when Taft is succeeded
by Wright, to fill the vacancy on the
Philippine commission by appointing a
general of the line. It is suggested
also that the military member should
become ex-officio minister of war in the
TURKS MAY KILL.
Panic Stricken Christians of Uskub Afraid
to Leave Their Houses.
Sofia, Aug. 20. A reign of terror is
reported to prevail at Uskub, where the
Christain inhabitants are afraid to
leave their houses. The Vali has is
sued the strictest orders to the Mussul
man population to remain quiet and
not molest their Christain neighbors,
but the Mussulmans meetings in the
mosques have resolved, at a given sig
nal, to massare the whole Christain
population immediately after the first
insurgent bands appear near Uskub,
or on any other pretext. The Chris-
tains a,e terrorized. The Turkish
troops, who are their only protection,
do not xhow the slightest disposition
to aid them.
Torpedo Boat Is a Success.
Newport, R. I., Aug. 20. It was
demonstrated to the satisfaction of the
government officials that the torpedo
boat destioyer Hull is a success from
every standpoint, and the trial board
has decided to recommend that she be
accepted. The trial was held outside
of Newport in a sea described as from
smooth to rough. The boat was
handled under the direction of the
board of inspection and survey. Sbe
not only maintained her contract speed
of 28 knots an hour, but at times made
29 knota and over.
Yet Hope for Canal.
Color, Aug. 20. The statement
made in dispatch from Foreign Min
ister Rico to Secretary Herran, the
Colombian minister at Washington,
announcing the rejection of the canal
treaty, and which was published here
today, to the effect that the Colombian
congress may probably furnish a basis
for a resumption of negotiations with
the United States, has caused a more
hopeful feeling in same quarters with
regard to the fate of the treaty.
Massacre Is Conflrmrd.
Soifia, Aug. 20. Reports received
from Constantinople, and believed to
be authentic, confirm the previous
statements to the effect that when the
Turks recaptured Krushevo they
slaughtered the entire Christian popu
lation, without exception, and it is
pointed out that among those killed
were the employes of the government
tobacco establishment, which were un
der European control.
HAPPENINGS HERE IN OREGON
TO INSURE THEIR OWN DRYERS.
Prune Q rowers of Willamette Valley Pro
pose to Organize Company.
At a meeting of prune growers held
in Salem a few days ago, a movement
was started for the organization of a
mutual Insurance company, for the in
surance of prune dryers. The growers
were agreed that the insurance com.
panlea charge too high a rate of pra
mlum for this class Of risks, and that
the cost would be greatly reduced by
co-operative action. A committee to
report a plan f organisation was ap
pointed, consisting of John Pemberton,
chairman, , Rosedale: W. S. Wright,
Roseburg; Augustus High, Vancouver;
A. Shiber, Philomath; Mr. Blanchard,
Salem; H. 8. Glle, Salem; H. J. Zur
It is Intended that the Insurance as

Board of Trade Formed.
The new Industries Inaugurated In
Jacksonville and vicinity are showing
results which indicate a revival of the
old time prestige and prosperity of
the place. The three great lumbering
mills directly tributary to it. the pro
duct of which all centers here; the
large manufacturing plant, planing
mill and box factory in operation in
town, the completion of the general
gas plant, and many other contemplat
ed improvements have inspired renew
ed confidence in the place, and busi

were more hopeful for the future than
at the Dresent time. As an evidence
of the prosperity and confidence of
business man in the future of the
nlace. a board of trade has been re

Salem Mills May Burn Oil.
The management of the Salem wool
en mills have been figuring for some
time on the substitution of oil for
wood for fuel In the mill. The rapid
advance In the price of wood has made
It desirable to find a cheaper fuel. The
only difficulty encountered was in the
expense of getting the oil delivered
here, and when the oil company has
completed Its arrangements for stor
Isg oil at Portland it Is thought this
difficulty can be met.
Union Creamery Prosperous.
The Union creamery has at last be
come firmly established, and la doing
a large business in manufacturing but
ler and fine cream for supplying the
towns of this part of the state. A
ekimmlng station is In operation at

paring to establish another station at

Forty Cents for Picking Hops
A number of prominent hopgrowers
held an Informal meeting at Salem
last week and and discussed the price
to be paid for hopplcking. It was the
rousensus of opinion that 40 cents a

number of growers are advertising for
pickers, and a few of the larger yards
have their list nearly complete.

Tha Willamette vallev nrune assoc
iation held Its annual stockholders'

WATERINQ OF KLATUTH.
Only a Very Small Poittoa of That Oreat
Prof. F. L. Kent of the Oregon Agri
cultural college, has just returned
to Corvallis from a visit of a month's
duration to the irrigated regions of
Klamath county, where he gave spec
ial attention to the methods of apply
ing water, the kind of crops grown,
and the extent of the irrigable area of
that section of the state..
Klamath county - has an area of
about 6300 square miles, nearly as
great as the state of Massachusetts.
Ot this area competent engineers es
timate that not more than 160 square
miles, or about 2V4 per cent of the
whole, can be brought under Irriga
tion systems, and produce cultivated
crops. Perhaps 1 per cent more is
available for irrigation, but for various
reasons Is only adapted to to the grow
ing of the native grasses, which are
used mainly for hay.

Frank Curtis Becomes Warden.
Superintendent James, of the Ore
gon penitentiary, has appointed
Frank Curtis to succeed E. A. McPher
son, who resigned the position of
warden. Curtis is a democrat and was
a candidate for the legislature from
Multnomah county in 1902. He has
been serving for Borne time as a guard
at the prison.
Preparing to Rebuild.
The Oregon City manufacturing
company has asked for bids for the
construction of buildings at its woolen
mill plant in that city to replace the
one that was burned last month. The
cost will approximate $30,000. Most
of the buildings will be of wood and
corrugated iron and the principal
structures will be three stories high,
and will be directly connected to the
main building. The management of
the mills expects to resume operations
In this city October 15. An automatic
device at a cost of $10,000 will be pro
cured to pour water on incipient fires.
On Equal Footing.
The state board of education has re
ccntly made a ruling which will pre
vent the graduates of normal schools
of other states from securing state
papers In this state, unless they have
passed state examinations the same as
are now required of graduates of Ore
gon normal schools. The reason for
this is that the board will not give to
certificates and diplomas of other
states a higher credit than is given
to similar papers In this state.

TELL WHO MAY LAND.
New Chinese Regulations Are Made
Washington, Aug. 19. A new set of
Chineso regulations, prepared by Com'
missioner General of Immigration Sar
gent and approved by Secretary Cortel
yon, of the department of commerce
and labor, jurisdiction of the matter of
the exclusion of Chinese having been
transferied from the treasury to the lat
ter department, were made - public to
day and are now ready for distribution.
These rules designate what Chinese per
sons are permitted to land at ports of
the United States under the provisions
of the laws and treaties, together with
the pos at which Chinese, other than
Chinese diplomatic and consular offi
cers, may land and name the officers
whe have been vested with the power
and authority heretotoie conferred on
collectors of customs, giving their sta
tions and jurisdiction.
Conditions are named to which e,very
Chinese person seeking admission into
the United States nnder the provisions
of the act of 1902, for the purpose of
taking part in any fair or exhioition
authorized by congress, shall confoim
as s condition precedent to such admis
sion regulations governing the arrest
and deportation of Chinese unlawfully
within the United States are included.
All told there are 61 rules embraced in
the new regulations. Accompanying
the regulations are laws and treaties re
lating to the exclusion of Chinese.
Provision is made for a Bertillion
record of all Chinese laborers arriving
and departing at ports of entry, copies
of such registry to be transmitted to
the commissioner general of immigra
tion. Conditions are prescribed to which
all Chinese persons claiming tha right
of transit through the United States to
foreign territory must conform as a con
dition preceding such privilege. Nu
meroua changes have been necessary in
the revision of these rules to make
them conform to the transfer of jurisdic
tion over tne subject from the treasury
department to the department of com
merce and labor. Forms of blanks are
prescribed and rules made to govern the
officers charged with the enforcement
of the exclusion law.
LAWS AT FAULT.
Congress May Be Asked to Repeal Pres
ent Land Laws.
Washington, Aug. 19. The 68th
congress, wnen it regularly assembles
in December, will be called upon to re
move from the statute books three laws
under which the government is being
systematically robbed each year of hun
dreds of thousands, if not millions, of
dollars' worth of public lands. The
robbers are not in all cases violating
the letter of tha law, and as long as
these three laws remain in force they
cannot be reached, but they are violat
ing the spirit of the law, and escape
only on technicalities. The fight be
gun in the last days of the 67th con
gress, to bring about the repeal of the
timber and stone act, the desert land
act, and the commutation clause ot the
homestead act, is to be renewed with
vigor, and the friends, as well ai the
enemies of reform, are even now pre
paring to enter the fray, each side de
termined to win.
Secretary Hitchcock, after more
than four years in the cabinet, during
which time he has familiarized himself
with the operations of the several land
laws, has become convinced that the
statutes should be chsnged. He can
not see why the government should re
linquish for $4 an acre timber lands
that are worth t 00 an acre; he can
not see why dummy entries should be
permitted, even though they be made
just inside the limitations of the law;
ha does not see wtiy one man should be
permitted to make an entry in the in
terest of another; nor does he recognize
the justice of allowing cattle barons
and large stock interests to gain con
trol, if not ownership, of vast tracts of
public grazing lands, contrary to the
public policy. Secretary Hitchcock
has com to realize that while the gov-
ernent is annually losing vast areas of
valuable lands under the operations of
the laws just specified, the governent
is, to a great extent, powerless to arrest
many forms of speculative entries so long

Italy Expects War.
Rome, Aug. 19. The memorandum
of the Bulgarian government to the
powers regarding the situation in Ma
cedonia baa produced a great effect
here. The general impression is that
the Bulgarian government is no longer
able to hold back popular feeling,
which, unless it is repressed in time,
will lead lo a war with Turkey. The
fate of Bulgaria in that event, it is
thought, would probably be the ssme
as that of Greece in the last war with
Turkey. The Italian government is ex

Washington, Aug. 19. Official in

Colombian senate had unanimously re

This means more delay in providing

hard one, too, to the Colombians who
have invested in real estate on the sup
position that the treaty would be rati-

would seem to vindicate the advocates
of the Nicaragua scheme. The Panama
