Found In Twenty-Five Fathoms of Water
la Barclay Sounu.
Victoria, B. C, Nov. 5.-A report has
been made to Captain Gaudin, Agent
of Marine, that a submerged wreck,
seemingly of an Iron vessel, has been
found lying in 25 fathoms of water off
Amphritite Point, Barclay Sound.
Fishermen have come in contact with
the wreck when trolling and the fact
that their lines, when cleared, showed
rust and iron stains, indicates the pos
sibility of it being an iron vessel. The
vessel is five miles from shore.
Captain Gaudirl has communicated
with Admiral Bickford, commanding
the station, Intimating a possibility of
the wreck being that of the British
warship Condor, which foundered In
December two years ago. Wreckage
from the Condor was found by search
ing vessels in that vicinity, but there
is nothing to Indicate that it is that
lost warship, for many wrecks have
occurred near by within the past year.

Douglas, Wyo., Nov. 5 John Mbrton,
a member of the Douglas posse, says
the Indians who shot Sheriff Miller
and a deputy In bloody battle Sat
urday have separated, and each par
ty is taking a different trail. The
posse wag unable to follow the lead,
and the pursuit was temporarily aban
doned. It is the opinion of many of
the officers that the redskins cannot
be caught until they return to the res
ervation, and as fast as they come into
the Pine Ridge agency they will be
taken into custody.
Fire Causes Million Less.
Albany, N. V.. Nov. 5. Fire which
started tonight on the Citizens' steam
boat pier at Troy raged for two hours
before it was under control, and de
stroyed several large buildings on
River street between Broadway and
Second streets. Including the beautiful

exceeding $300,000. All telegraphic

Injuries to persons are reported.

tary of Count Lamsdorf, the Russian
Minister of Foreign Affairs, in an in
terview this evening said Russia de
sires general pese in both the near

HAPPENINGS HERE IN OREGON
HOLD ON TO YOUR PRUNES.
Advice Qivea to Growers by ex-Commis
Salem "Prunegrowers who have
not already sold their fruit should hold
It for a price that will give them a fair
profit," says Lloyd T. Reynolds, for
merly horticultural commissioner for
the second district.
"Dealers are around offering to pay
a basis price or 1 cents. Probably a
majority of the prune crop this year
will average in the 50-60 to-tbe-pound
je, and at this buXis -growers would
get only 3 cents a pound tor their fruit.
Since the cost of labor and fuel has
advanced, 3 cents a pound is about the
actual-cost of production. Growers are
cutting their own throats when they
sell at such figures.
"The condition of the fruit market
does not warrant such low prices.
France had a very short crop and is
buying prunes heavily in this country
The dispatches from New York tell us
that the packing houses in this country
hav had difficulty in filling the orders
as fast as they are received. The
apple crop of the United States is 1,000,
000 barrels short and prices for that
fruit will be high. Canned goods have
advanced very materially. In every
view of the situation I can see no rea
on why prunegrowers should not re
ceive a fair price, if they will ask for

all the prunes will be wanted and the
proper course for the growers is to
wait until a living price is offered.

prices, but for a living price. Oregon

LIEU L4ND REJECTIONS LAROE
Land Agent West Puts Records In Order
and Oothers Figures.
Salem State Land Agent Oswald
West has just completed the classifi
cation and filing of the correspond
ence and papers relating to state lieu
land selections in Oregon. Hereto
fore the records have been in confus
ion and one seeking information re
garding any particular selection,
would have difficulty in finding it.
Now the records are arranged so that
any desired information may be had
at a moment's notice. The list shows
that the lieu land selections upon min
eral base, which have been passed
upon by the Federal Land Depart
ment within the past yt'iir or two ag
gregate 74,000 acres, of which about
i.OOO acres have been clear listed and
about 70.000 has either been rejected
or is still pending with the outlook
poor, for its approval.
Pendleton Owns Its First Park.
Pendleton Pendleton is now the
owner of a city park. For years such
a move has been agitated, but nothing
was done until a week or so ago, when
the council bargained for the property
In the east part of the city, where the
water supply is secured. The money
has been paid over and the deeds
filed. The land was purchased from
Jessie S. Vert, consisting of one en
tire block, and for which she received
$1500, and four lots from V. Stroble.
The city purchased this property to
prevent buildings from being erected
Release of 171 Mortgages.
Pendleton The Pendleton savings
bank has filed with the county record
er releases- of 171 mortgages. This is
the biggest bunch of mortgages that
has ever been paid off at one time for
a number of years. The banking com
pany held these mortgages, ' principal
ly against farmers, sheep and cattle
men. The amount of some of the
mortgages was as high as $16,000,
while some of them were as low as
$50. They averaged $1500, making the
total amount paid $256,500.
Put Up Much Fruit.
Ashland The Ashland Preserving
Company, which has been operating
an extensive cannery in this city the
present season, will close operations
for the year this week. The season
has been longer than usual and there
have been more people employd than
ever before, the average number of
operatives being between 40 and 50.
Manager Charles Pierce reports that
during the four months' run the plant
has canned 15 tons of Bartlett pears,
21 tons of peaches, 10 tons of string
beans and seven tons of blackberries.
Wood $7 a Cord.
Pendleton There is a scarcity of
wood in Pendleton. This is due to the
lack of cars to bring it from the Blue
Mountains, from where Pendleton gets
her supply. There seems to be plenty
of wood at the belt. Prices are excep
tionally high. Fir Is selling at $7 per
cord and pine at $6.50. This price is
nearly $1 higher than last year. Coal
i selling at $S per ton.

La Grande The sugar beet factory
lere has already this season received
10,000 tons of beets, and has worked
over 7000 tons, which means 16.000
sacks of sugar. It is expected that
