A Japanese gunboat would not allow the American steamer Stanley Dollar to land at a Corean port, trtie was under charter by a Russian firm to load lumber. A war is on between rival steamer lines from Portland to The Dalles. The passenger rate has been lowered to 25 cents and freight is carried for one dollar a ton.

ThaTnrkiiih envov at Washington, in discussing the attempted assassination of the American consul, blames mis. ionaries for the rebellion. Ex-Secretary of State Powers, of Kentucky, has been found guilty of complicity ln the assassination of ex Governor Goebel and sentenced to be hanged. The recent attack on Vice Consul Magelssen was not the first. About two years ago he was knocked down and robbed by three men. He attack ed his assailants, recovered his watch and gave them a severe beating. Nebraska and Iowa are still suffering from floods. Joseph Ha worth, a well known actor, is deal from heart disease. Captain A. J. Pearman, squatter governor of Nebraska nnder territorial government, is dead. A Ban Pedro-Los Angeles electric car was held np by three masked men and the passengers robbed.

Cattlemen Will Establish a Large Pack ing Plant at Kansas City. Kanss City, Mo., Sept. 3. Twenty- five stockmen from different parts of the Western grass country met in this city today and arranged to perfect the organization of a packing company to compete with the alleged packers' trust The new company was named the Inde pendent packing company. Articles of incorporation will be drawn up to morrow and signed at a meeting to be held tomorrow afternoon. The com pany will have a capital stock of f 5, 000 .000, and will be incorporated under the laws of Arizona. Of the total cap italization, 51 per cent will be so dis posed of as to be held in oscrow by the board of directors of the company. This will assure stockmen who will in terest themselves in the plan that the company will always be controlled oy stock interests. The rest of the stock will be sold to stockmen, if possible, although no purchaser will be barred. The division of stock, as decided upon today, was made to prevent any possibility of the alleged packers' trust gaining control of the new independent company. Two million of the stock will be issued at first. The rest will be put out later. Formerly it was the plan to include the United States pack ing comapny, of Pueblo, Colo., in the scheme. Now it is predicted on good authority that the Pueblo plant will never be built, but that its capitaliza tion of more than $1,500,000 will either be transferred to the Independent pack ing company or be allowed to revert back to the stockmen who subscribed it. Charles F. Martin, secretary of the National livestock association, who was one of the promoters of the United States packing company and a stock holder, is in Kansas City promoting the organiaztion of the Independent packing company. The Independent packing company will build one plant in the Missouri valley, but the exact location has not yet been decided upon. It is to be in operation in the fall of next year. Another plant will be built later, probably in Texas. WAR IS COURTED. Macedonians Proclaim an Uprising- Leader Head Outbreak. Sofia,' Sept. 3. The Macedonian rev olutionists awaited the anniversary of the sultan's accession to proclaim the long anticipated general insurrection in Northern Macedonia, the proclamation of which was issued today, signed bj all the membera of the insurgent gen eral staff. The new outbpreak is head ed by the famous Macedonian leaders, General Zuntcheff, president of the Macedonian committee and Colonel Jankhoff, who was wounded in the ris ing of 1902. The new territory covers the districts in the valley of the Struma, at the base of the Rhodope mountain chain and to the north of the Nardar river. Colonel Jankoff is directing the movements of the bands in the southern part. It is reported that Hilmi Pasha, the inspector general for Macedonia, re fuses to leave his headquarters in the Konakat Monastir. The insurgent leader, Grueff, in a letter to Helmi Pasha, demanded that he prevent the barbarous acts of the Turkish soldiers and Bashi Bazouks, otherwise the revo lutionists would massacre all the Turk ish inhabitants. TEN THOUSAND FOR SHOW. Multnomah Boys Spending Thlr Sum on Portland's Big Fall Carnival. Ten thousand dollars is the sum be ing expended by the Multnomah ath letic club on Portland's big fall carni val, September 14 to 26 inclusive and it is safe to say that the biggest and beat show of the kind ever seen on the Pacific coast will be that in September. The giants from the athletic field will be there and lovers of athletic events will have an opportunity to see the big fellows contest for prizes. Low rates have been granted by the railroads and the attendance no doubt will be very large. The boys have decided to make every day a special day and this will be something of an innovation in the way of a carnival. Fair Exhibit Takes Form. Berlin, Sept. 3. Germany' exhibit at the St. Louis exposition is taking form. Some shipments have already been made, and it is possible to fore cast the whole with tolerable accuracy. The collective exhibits of porcelain, bronzes, textiles, foods, toys, leather- work, intemr decorations and 20 more specialties will be complete and will represent the best that Germany can do. The government exhibits, snch as transportation, education and art, will be the finest ever sent out of the coun try. Forty Hurt In Wreck. Hastings, Ia., Sept. 3.

Governor Chamberlain is in receipt of a letter from Chairman Fred J Kelsel, of the executive committee of the National Irrigation congress, call ing attention to the four $500 prizes to be awarded at the session of the congress in September. The prizes are silver loving cups, one for the best exhibit of hops, one for the best showing of barley, one for the finest display of varied fresh fruits, and one for the best showing of sugar beets, with the highf-st percentage of fiugar. The cup to oe given for the best display of fruit is described as being 23 Inches in height and weighs 270 ounces. It Is of silver and repre sents the Goddess Pomona distribut ing the kindly fruits of the earth. The letter urges Governor Chamber lain to be present, if possible, and to see that Oregon is fittingly represent ed, as the subjects discussed will be of great importance to this state. It will probobly not be convenient for Gov- enor Chamberlain to go to Ogden to attend the Congress, which meets September 15. WARNER VALLEY CONTROVERSY.

A 300-ton quicksilver plant Is going up on the Black Butte mines near Cot tage Grove, in which G. B. Dennis, of Spokane, is interested. "Four years of uninterrupted devel opment, said Mr. Dennis," has ex posed the most expansive imbedding of clnnibar ore on the American con tinent if not ln the world. The work represents an expenditure of nearly $500,000. "The Black Butte quicksilver mines are located in Lane county, some 18 miles from Cottage Grove. During the four years 12,000 feet of work has been done, which includes a vertical shaft to the 1000-foot level. At each 100-foot station a drift running on the foot wall has been driven either Bide of the shaft the full length of the pay shoot. 227 feet, and at each level the ledge has been crosscut for Its full width of 80 feet. 'The average of the ore Is about 16 In quicksilver or $10 it ton, and there Is now blocked out more than $2,000.- 000 in quicksilver. The present 40 ton smelting or distilling plant Is be ing enlarged to a 300-ton capacity and the mine equipped with a complete electrical waterpower plant, furnish ing power and light, which places the property in position for working upon a very large scale." Brick Supply Equals Demand. The force of workmen has complet ed the burning of a kiln of 300.0BO bricks, and now the supply of material is sufficient to keep construction work In progress at the penitentiary, reform school and aslyum. At each of these places the new buildings and addi tions are under construction. Super intendent James says that although the contract for the construction of an ex ecution chamber at the prison does not require its completion before January 1, the building will be ready for use before that time, and, so far as he can see now, It will be ready before the date jof any hanging now in prospect. Horfd River Apples Contracted. Joseph A.' Wilson, manager of the Hood River Applegrowers' Union, has lust consummated a $20,000 apple sale. The Davidson fruit company, of Hood River, Is the purchaser, and has de posited $1000 to bind the sale. The price for fancy four-tier Spltzensbergs Is $2 a box; yellow Newtons, $1.80, the apples to be delivered at railway at picking time. Before the recent or ganization of the union, buyers were paying $1.45 a box for Spitzenbergs. This is the largest fruit sale ever" .made ln Hood River. - . Much Building at Ashland. It is estimated that the value of building improvements just completed, or now under way, in Ashland will reach $50,000, and the high tide of building activity in that city for the oast two or three years promises to be equaled before the close of the pres ent season. A number of new business buildings have recently been' complet ed and many new and substantial resi dences are now ln course of construc tion throughout the city. Sale of School Land. Though sale of school land have practically ceased, the receipts of the land department, are undiminished. The monthly statement, made by Clerk George G. Brown, shows that for August the collections were $30,036.11, or over $1000 a day. This is equal to the normal receipts while school land was selling. The money now coming in is composed chiefly of deferred pay ments on sales heretofore made. Will Pack Meat on a Large Scale. Rehor.and Hulac of Omaha, Neb., have bought out Kerr & Housler's meat market and cold storage plant at McMlnnvllle. They are making ar rangements to carry on an extensive pork and meat packing business. Mc Mlnnvllle was their choice, due to ex tensive stock raising the farmers have gone into this last four or five years. Yamhill county has ten times the stock today it had six years ago.

Without a word of warning two men were killed and two others wounded by hold-up men at the barns of the Chicago City railway company, Sixty-first and State streets, at an early hour today. The shooting was done by three men who escaped after securing $3,000. Three of the men who were shot Were working in the cashier's office and the other was a motorman asleep ' in the outer office. The men in the office were shot befoie they were aware ot the robber's pres ence and the motorman was killed as he was rising from a bench where he had been sleeping. The robbers took no chances, but dis- iiosed of all the opposition of the em ployes before they entered the office. Choosing the time when employes were busily engaged in balancing up the re ceipts of the niuht, just after the last conductor bad turned in his money and left the barns, the robbers etiddenly ap peared at the receiving window and be gan shooting without warning. Making sure that all opposition bad been removed the robbers then broke open the door of the cashier's office with a sledge hammer and took from the desk f 3,000 in bills. Tbey then made their escape. Four men were arrested three hours later on suspicion of being implicated in the crime. They as yet have no been identified. WANT NO CHANQB OF RULE. Danish West Indie Board Finds People Are Well Satisfied. Berlin, Sept. 2. The National Zei tung says the Danish West Indian com mission is said to have reported as fol lows to Finance Minister Hage: "The pcpulation of the islands is sat isfied to remain under Danish rule. The whites hope from the newly awak ened interest of Denmark in the Island an improvement of economic conditions and the fostering of civilizing influence. The negroes, for the greater part, are indifferent, and know bnt little about Denmark. The administration of the islands was found to be unpractical and expensive and the hygienic condit ions entirely unsatisfactory." It is believed, says the National Zie- tung, that the commission wilt report in favor of reducing the military estab lishment on ths islands and reorganiz ing the gendarmerie on modern lines. The report will also suggest that more attention be paid to publio instruction, the improvement of the hospitals, the tobacco growing industry and the rais ing of corn. The commission places great weight on the necessity of com munication between the islands them selves nd with Denmark. The hope is expressed that the exports sf the is lands can be developed, and in this connection hopes are based on the new ly formed West Indian steamship and land company. HARD ON FOREIQNERS. Venezuelan Government Punishes All Who May Present Claims. Willemstad, Island ot Curacao, Sept. 2 Harsh justice is being meted out to foreigners residing in the interior of Venezuela, where the local authorities are bunting down all foreigners who dare to present claims against Venezu ela in accordance with the recent pro tocol. Near Coroa, a local tribunal refused to accept the testimony of five Italians. On the latter insisting on tendering their depositions, three were arrested and thrown into jail. Two of them attempted to escape and were fired up on, one being killed. The Venezuelan government does not deny this occur rence, but is doing all it can to pre vent repetition. It is learned on good authority that letters rent to foreigners from the Ital ian and other legations instructing them to send in their claims were seized in the posts so as to prevent the claims from arriving at Caracas in due time. Where Mad Mullah Oct Arm. Aden Arabia, Sept. 2. The principal sources for the supply of rifles and am munition to the Mad Mullah's forces in Somaliland have been traced through a complete identification of trade marks through agents at Harsar and Jaoutil, Abyssinia, to a London Arm. bince the commencement of the operations in Somaliland, an aggregate of 8.000,- 000 rounds of Lee-Metford rifle ammu nition and correspondingly large num bers of Lee-Metford and Gra rifles have been shipped by this London Arm to Jibutil and Harsar. Chine Rebel Are Winning. Washington, Sept. 2. Consul Mc Wade, at Canton, nnder date of August 24, has sent to the state department a detailed account of the insurrection in Kwang Si province, from which it ap pears that in a number of engagements the rebels defeated the government troops.

Present Condition Will Force This Step Neither Nation Is Expected to De clare Hostilities, But th Knowing" One Hold That Only a Miracle Can Prevent Tbem. 6ofia. Sept. 2. In both official and revolutionary circles the opinion is freely held that war between Bulgaria and Turkey is imminent, and can be averted by nothing short of a miracle. It is not expected either government will formally declare hostilities, bnt that the prevaling conditions will force on a war. There is no question that large num. ber 8 of insurgents have recently crossed the frontier. An extensive outbreak in Northern Macedonia is probable at any time. . The Autonomy prints a telegram from Constantinople declaring that the su'tan, influenced by the consuls of Germany now favors war with Bulgaria, The Turks here, however, take an optimistic view, asserting that there is no danger of a war, as Turkey does not desire one, and Prince Ferdinand and the present Bulgarian government are not in a position to force hostilities. The Bulgarian agent at Uskub re ports that detachments of Turkish troops sent to garrison the email towns in that vilayet have spread destruction along their route; the villagers have been robbed and beaten, the women as saulted and the Christian population subjected to every conceivable outrage. the local authorities appear to be help. less to stop the atrocities. At the vil lage of Kachme, six miles from Uskub, the soldiers attacked all the peasants without the gendarmes interfering on behalf of the latter. The Bulgarian agent specifies similar excesses in many villages, and the po sition ol the .Bulgarian residents is re ported to be terrible, as the cruelties committed by the Turkish authorities exceeded all limits. Up to 6 o'clock this evening Prince Ferdinand had not arrived in Sofia, and the court officials here declare they are without informa- ' tion as to his movements. TO FIX THE BORDER.

Dickinson arrived at Liverpooi on the steamer Celtic today (or the meetings of the Alaskan Bound ary Commission, which will o;en in London September 3. The commissioners are already famil iar with the facts of the case, which were filed several months ago. At the first meeting of the commissioners next Thursday, the Americans and Canadians will submit their briefs which will be a condensation of the facts and argu ments regarding the interpretation of the treaty. The Commission will then announce the day on which the oral arguments will be heard. The documents have not yet been made public, but the Associated Press correspondent learns that the whole controversy centers upon Canada's efforts to acquire an outlet to the sea. It is known authoritatively that the Canadian agent asserts that under the Russo-Bntisb treaty of 1825 the line properly crosses numerous inlets, in eluding the headwaters of the Lynn canal. The contention seems to be that the inlets less than six miles wide situated in the disputed region belong to Canada. United States Consul Foster vigorous ly opposes this tiew holding that the treaty clearly places the line 30 miles inland, following the sinuosities of the coast, thus separating Canada from all the arms of the ocean and putting Por cupine creek and the gold district un der American jurisdiction. The Amer ican representatives are confident that their poistion is unassailable. Hold-Up Man Captured. Butte, Mont., Sept. 2. A Miner special from Havre says: Stock In spector George W.
