Journalists and Missionaries.
London, Sept. 10. A Monastir dis
patch to the Daily Mail, dated Septem
ber 8, says the great military drive in
the mountains to the southwest of Mon
astir toward Lake Prespa by a force of
3,000 Turkish iufantry with 12 guns,
resulted in the escape of all the revolu
tionary bands. Though the latter were
practically surrounded, not one was
captured The correspondent continues
"Vice Consal McGregor tells me that
the porte has informed Hilmi Pasha
that it has received a threat ''rom the
Macedonian committee that the insurg
ents intend to murder a British consal
or a Journalist or an American mission
ary. Vice Consul McGregor notified
the Turkish authorities that he will
hold them responsible for any murder
by either tne Turkt or the Bulgarians,
In my opinion this is nothing bat i

A Sofia dispatch to the Daily Mail,
dated September 8, sayt the revolution

the representatives of the powers a cir
cular note forewarning them of coming

will point to the probable total exter
mination of the Christains as necessi
tating the employment of the same
atrocious measures by the revolution
aries against the Turks, and will con
tend that the responsibility for such
desperate acts will rest with the pow
ers. STAND QOES DOWN.

Many of those injured re. eived brouen

ing. Fully 1,500 people were crowd
ed on to it. Just about the time the

broke down. .
There was a heavy artillery duel with
siege guns. Ihree battalions ot infan
try were using black powder. Some
one announced that the cavalry were
emerging from a ravine to charge.
People on the gandstand stood op to
see them through the smoke. The en
tire stand went down with a crash.
The etmost confusion followed, accom
panied by shrieks of victims.
It was found that many were pinned
down nnder the debris. Hundreds
who were walking on the ground rushed
to the grandstand looking for relatives.
The confusion was indescribable until
the regular soldiers formed a line and
kept all back not injured or caring for
The battle, which was on the other
side of the road, was called off and the
soldiers, acting under the direction of
their officers, began taking care of the

Tokio, Aug. 28, via Victoria, B. C,
Sept. 10. The conclusion of tbeRusiro-
Chinese secret convention is much
talked about in Pekin, and the Chinese
foreign office shows special earnestness
in denying the fact. Presumably with
the idea of causing discord between
Japan and Chins, Russia lias told tbe
secretary of the grand coancil in Pekin
that, a Russo-Japanese agreement hav
ing been concluded, Japan can no long
er interfere with the Manchurian prob
lem, and therefore China may freely
enter into friendly'negotiations.

HAPPENINGS HERE IN OREGON
STATE FAIR PROSPECTS.
Fine Exhibits and Fast Racing Will
Draw Large Attendance.
Prospects for the coming Oregon
state fair, to be held in September 14
to 19, are most fluttering. The fair
will excel la the line of exhibits and
attendance any state fair held hereto
fore in Oregon. The abundant crops
insure a speinedfd snowing of grains.
and the fact that the commissioners to
the St Louis exposition are co-operat
ing to secure the best that is shown
here for use next year means that the
exhibits, especially in the agrricultural
line, will be of ,the very best. The
live stock department, too, promises
better this year 'thaa any preceding
year. Breeders are preparing large
exhibits in this department, which has
caused the association to build a large
number of new stalls. Governor Sparks
of Reno, Nev., is sending a very line
herd of Hereford cattle from the AJa-
mo stock farm, which will meet compe
tition in herds shown by C.B.Wade of
Pendleton, A. J. Splawn of North Ya
kima, George Chandler of Baker City,
Gilbert & Patterson of Salem. In the
shorthorn section exhibits will be made
by Charles E. Ladd, C. B. Wade, W. O.
Minor, Metsker & Klemgard and oth
Tbe racing will be made a feature ot
this year's fair. A large number of
high class horses have already made
their entries, coming from California,
Montana, Colorado, Utah, Washington
and British Columbia. The two big
stakes of $2000 will arouse keen com
petition. These are the largest stakes
ever raced for in the northwest and
the best horses will compete for them
that have ever been seen on the cir
cuit. The grounds are in spelendid
condidtlon and the beautiful oak grove
will furnish plenty of shade and com
fort for a week's outing. The buildings
are all in splendid condition, and the
new show building will furnish comfort
to hundreds of spectators who wish to
see the judging of live stock.

Is that some valuable acquisitions were
made. The Broadway group, consist

of 80 acres, were added to their terri
tory, .making over 900 acres of mineral

Herbert Leigh, manager of the North
Fairvlew mines in the Bohemia dis
trict, has reported a rich strike In his
group. A body of ore four feet wide
and running $500 to the ton has been
uncovered on the north slope of North
Fairvlew mountain. Open cuts have
been made along the ledge a distance
of 1200 feet showing the same char
acter of ore and from four to six feet

Hatchery on Elk River.
The salmon hatchery on Elk river,
three miles above the Elk City, in
Lincoln county, Is to be made perman
ent. Lumber and building material is

WATER WOKXS WONDERS.
Kalamath Desert Changed to Smlilng
Oraln Fields. ,
State Treasurer C. S. Moore, who
has just returned from a month's out
ing in Klamath county, reports that all
industrial affairs In that section of the
state are prosperous and that the coun
try surrounding Klamath Lake Is
steadily developing. Irrigation ditch
es are being enlarged and extended and
the producing area gradually enlarged
the hay crop of that region is enor
mous and since prices are up the farm
ers are making money.
"The productiveness of that sage
brush land when water la put on it is
amazing," said Mr. Moore. "There is
a large tract of land out south of Low
er Klamath lake that I used to drive
ever frequently a few years ago.
vould not give ten cents an acre for it
without water on It. A man could not
live on it This summer I drove
through that same country and instead
of a dry, sage-brush plain, I saw fields
covered with an immense crop of wheat
and land that has already yielded one
crop of alfalfa and has another crop
almost ready for cutting. One tract of
1000 acres of that apparently worthless
land produced 25,000 bushels of wheat
1200 tons of alfalfa already this season.
I am told that the owners of that tract
of land, which was covered with sage-
Drush three years ago, will clear up
from $15,000 to $20,000 this year.
The land is owned by Henry E. 'An-
keny and Roscoe Cantrell, and is irri
gated from their ditch. I do not know
what they paid for the land, but it is
quite certain that they have already
realized all they ever put Into it. and
could now sell it for at least one-third
more than it has cost them, counting
all Improvements. This simply illus
trates the wonderfuld productiveness
of that soil if you can only get water
EUGENE PEOPLE TAKE HOLD.
Are Determined to Make the District
Fair a Success.
The officers of this District fair are
making arrangements for the fair to be
held at Bangs' park, near Eugene, for
four days, commencing September 28.
The flve-eights-of-a-mile race track in
the park has been put in first class con
dition. There is not a better track in
Premiums to the amount of $1500
are offered for the various exhibits,
while additional special premius are
offered by citizens of Eugene. " The
people of Eugene have subscribed
nearly $1500 to aid the enterprise. The
large pavilion on the grounds is being
enlarged to make room for exhibits,
and stock sheds, horse stalls and a
grand stand are being erected.
The park is in an excellent place for
camping and a number of wells are be
ing driven In different parts of the park
for the benefit of those who wish to
camp during the fair.
Well Preserved Baldwin Apples.
T. B. Klllin, county commisioner for
Clackamas county, brought to Oregon
City samples of the Baldwin variety
of the apple family that were -picked
from the tree in September 23 last.
The fruit is in a fair state of preserva
tion at this time, with no eveldence of
decay. Commissioner Klllin says he
does nothing to prolong the natural
state of the apple, which is kept in the
cellar throughout the winter. Mr. Killin
resides in the south end of the county,
and reports that there will not be to
exceed half a crop of apples this year.

way to a summer resort. The collision
was due, according to the officials of
the road, to a misunderstanding of the

The car starter endeavored to rectify
the mistake by shutting off the power

Persons who witnessed the collision

United States Not Working for New Ca
nal Treaty Wants Old Agreement.
Washington, Sept. 9. The state de
partment today received a routine mes
sage from Mr. Beaupre, tbe American
minister at Bogota, acknowledging the
receipt of Secretary Hay's cablegram of
August 26, stating that the Washing
ton government would enter into no
engagement which would hamper the
president s freedom of action under the
law. This was all the cablegram stated
although it has been the basis for spec
ulative reports about Mr. Beaupre's
ideas of the Bogota situation.
The state department s attitude is
one of dignified patience. No indica
tion of its course of action in the event
that the Colombian congress rejects or
amends the treaty will be forthcoming
until the time for the exchange of rati
fications expires, September 22. It is
known at the state department that the
Colombian congress is already regret
ting its hasty action in rejecting the
treaty, but the state department will
suggest no remedy (or the mistake.
Once and for all the state department
has announced that the treaty as ap
proved by the Washington government
was ratified by the American senate.
It is up to the Bogota government tc
ratify that identical treaty, if Colombia
desires an isthmian canal. Tbe state
department regards all the reports as to
the connection of this government or
even its interest in the unrest on the
isthmus at too trivia) for consideration.
