the Hoaso Soon.
Washington, April 7. There is a
prospect that the Lewis and Clark ex
position bill will be passed by the
house the latter part of the present
week, after being considered under spec
ial rule. Chairman Tawney today in
troduced a resolution authorizing con
sideration of the bill at any time dur
ing the remainror of the session, and
had his resolution referred to the com
mittee on rules. There is every assur
ance that this committee will favorably
report the resolution at its next meet
ing, notwithstanding the fact that
three members of the committee voted
against the Portland bill.
The strong showing on botn rollcaUs
establishes beyond question the fact
that the bill is favored by a large ma
jority of the members of the house, and
is believed by those in toucn with
the situation that the committee on
rules will recognize the wish of the
luaiority, and consent to consideration
of the bill. If Tawney's resolution is
reported as expected, it will be equiva
lent to a special rule, and will give am
pie opportunity for debate on the bill
and permit its passage by a majority
It is now regarded as certain by Ore-
gonians bere tnat tne Din win De
passed by the house and that the meas
ure signed by the president will appro
priate at least the amount carried by
the house bill, namely, $475,000.
The strength of the bill, demon
strated by the votes on Monday, testi
fies to the effectiveness of the efforts of
friends of that measure in working up
sentiment in its behalf.
PANAMA STRIKE QROWS SERIOUS.
America Warns Marines and Seamen
to Take No Side.
Washington, April 7. The labor
troubles on the Isthmus of Panama
growing out of the stiike of the em
ployes of the Panama railroad company
have taken a serious turn, and the facts
have been reported to the state depart
ment by the United States charge at
Panama. The matter was deemed of
sufficient importance to warrant consid
erable discussion at the 'cabinet meet
ing, and the unanimous opinion was
that everything should be done to avoid
an entanglement of the United StateB
with any labor controversy. But it
was determined that the government
would not withhold in any degree the
protection of the Panama railroad,
which it has assumed by treaty, and it
was directed that the railroad property,
rolling stock, track and terminals
should be protected by forces from the
United States warships at the isthmus
if that became necessary.
There will, however, be no compul
sion exercised against the strikers to
compel them to return to work. If
the railroad management can secure a
sufficient force of men to operate the
road they will be upheld in such an at
tempt. This will be done with the
full consent of the Panama government,
though under broad treaty provisions
this is not absolutely necessary.
Secretary Moody was charged with
the duty of carrying out this decision
and with instructing Admirals Glass
and Sigsbee as to the course they shall
pursue. There is ample (orce on tbe
isthmus for any emergency.
BOLD DASH FOR LIBERTY.
Missouri Convicts Hold Up Quard,
Are Soon Overpowered.
Jefferson City, Mo., April 7. Four
convicts at the penitentiary today at
tempted to escape, by holding up tbe
guard with revolvers. They were
forced to surrender, and wben searcned
several sticks of dynamite were found
in their possession.
Thev had succeeded in cutting tneir
way out of their cells, and when Guard
John Williams, in making his lounds,
came upon them in the corridor, they
called upon him to halt. Williams
fled and gave the alarm, and a corps of
guards responded and soon overpowered
the convicts and placed them in other
cells. The convicts assert that they
secured the revolvers and dynamite by
express, but the prison authorities be
lieve the weapons and explosives were
smuggled to them by friends.
Russia Will Appeal the Cases.
St. Peteisburg, April 7. Russia has
completed arrangements through the
French minister at Tokio to appeal the
cases of the Russian merchantmen now
before the Japanese prize courts.
Three Japanese 'lawyers have been en
;cd to present the cases. Appeals
will be made on various grounds.
Most of the ships were taken before the
actual declaration of war, several of
them were captured on the high seas,
having left port before the outbreak of
hostilities, while othsrs were in neu
Kouropatkin Has a Surprise.
Paris, April 7. A St. Petersburg dis
natch declares General Kouropatkin

the Cossack division that the Russian
cavalry will not be heard of again for

brought to notice, it will be through an
exploit that will both please and as
tonish Russians. Another St. Peters
burg dispatch states that the Russians
have suns a large numoer 01 mines ana
torpedoes at the mouth of the Yalu.

VICTORY IN SIGHT
MAJORITY OP HOUSE FAVORS
BILL ON TEST VOTE.
Necessary Two-Third! to Suspend Roles
Lacking- Tawoey Not Discouraged
and Will Try to Secure Special Rale
and If Unsuccessful, Appropriation
Can Be Placed on Sundry ClvfJ BUI.
Washington, April 5. Tho Lewis
snd Clark exposition bill scored a great
victory in the house yesterday, al
though the necessary two-thirds vote
to pass the measure was not secured.
On two separate voWsg it waa shown
that there was a very large majority ia
the house in favor of an apptopriation.
It now remains to be seen whether a
majority o( the honse, desiring to aid
a laudable undertaking, can be defeated
through inabilityto bring tho bill be
fore the house.
The first vote was on the bill direot,
and the second on a proposition to
make it a privileged measure, so as to
make it possible to call it up at any
time. Three members, or the majori
ty, of the committee on rules opposed
the suspension of the rules on both
votes. Some might take this to mean
that it will be impossible to secure a
rule bringing tbe bill to a vote, but as
Speaker Cannon is undoubtedly in favor
of the appropriation, and General Gros
venor, of Ohio, a member of the com
mittee on rules, is with him, the prob
abilities are that the committee will
decide that the majority of tbe house
is entitled to pass this legislation, and
therefore a special rule will be
Ihe Oregon delegation is much
pleased with the character of the men
who voted with them. The majoiity
was composed of the leading represent
atives on both sides of the party aisle,
prominent Republicans and Democrats
both giving voice to the idea that the
exposition ought to be encouraged, at
least to the extent of government par
ticipation. There is another feature of this prop
osition which is encouraging to Oregon
people. If there is any gieat delay in
the matter of securing a special rule to
consider the bill, the appropriation
will be put on the sundry civil bill by
the senate, and it is certain that the
house will support it, the votes record
ed today being such a guarantee. The
sundry civil bill is still in the hands of
the senate committee on appropria
tions, but before it is reported from
that committee, tbe Oregon men can
definitely ascertain whether there is to
be a special rule for the consideration
of the bill in the bouse. If the three
members of the committee on rules
who voted against the appropriation
adhere to their position,' then the bill
will be carried as part of the sundry
TROOPS POURINd INTO HARBIN.
Nearly Every House In Town Is Occupied
St. Petersburg, April 6. An Associ
ated Press correspondent en route to
the front, writing from Harbin, March
13, describes the scene there as he ob
served it. From all sides soldiers were
pouring into Harbin. The uncom
pleted railroad station there had been
transformed into a barracks, and al
most every house in the town was oc
cupied by soldiers.
Frisian, a short distance away, which
until recently had been a small village
on the bank of the Sungari river, had
become a city with temporary buildings
which were being used by the troops
and with stores, a hotel and restaurant
Merchants and testauranteurs,' the cor
respondent adds, were accused of extor
tion, but money was cheap.

Russlsns Hope to Thus Keep Japanese
Out ol Nlu Chwang.
Niu (jhwang, April 6. In connec
tion with the Russian plans for the for
tification of Niu Chwang, the Russian
port commander has prepared 12 junks
laden to water edge with stones, which
will be settled on the first appearance
of the enemy in such a position that it
will be impossible for any vessels eith
er to enter or leave tbe harbor. The
river between here and Yinkow is ex
tremely mined. ! I
Railway Traffic Not Congested.
St. Petersburg, April 6. A high
Russian official, w ho has just returned
from a trip ovei the Trans-Siberian
railway, contradicts the report that
there is great congestion of traffic. He
declares that ten trains daily traverse
hte road in either direction as 'ar as
Irkutsk, and nine freight trains, in ad
dition to many passenger trains, daily
run from beyond Lake Ballkal to Har
bin. He says that there is no concern
for the safety of the line. ' Every foot
of It is strongly gdarded. This is es
pecially so at all bridges.
Japanese Surprise Then.
London, April 6. Eight weeks from
the opening of the war sees Japan,
without any real fighting, apparently
in possession of Corea, and the firBt
stage of the campaign meet ended.
The correspondent of the Standard at
. Tokio reports that the Japanese corre-
spondents at the front who followed
the army through the Chino-Japanese
war, express great surprise at the im
provement of the Japanese troops in
the past decade.

Chefoo, April 6, Russian officers

anese on Sunday, April 3. No au

EFFORT TO PROTECT THB JEWS.
Ruislaa Aatbotitles Do Not Desire Repe
tition ol Easter Outrages.
St. Petersburg, Apiil 6. Reports re
ceived by tho mini 17 of the interior
indicate that tho precautionary meas
ures taken to prevent anti-Jewish dis
turbances during Easter week, when
the ignorant are easily aroused to a
sort of religious frenzy regarding
"blood atonement," will result in the
avoidance of serious trouble. 3 Jjj-s?
In spite of the precautions, however,
it is considered possible there may be
attempts at rioting, but the authorities
may be relied upon to suppress these
with a strong hand. Tho following
private ; telegram was receives)., today
"Reports of anti-Jewish disturbances
which are common at Easter time cause'
more alarm than usual this year, be
cause of the occurrences last year.
Tbe Jews here are nervous but the
authorities have confidence in Gover
nor Eidhardt, who is in charge of the
city, and who is an energetic and hu
mane man, as well as in Baron Kaul
bars, commander-in-chief of the troops
in Southern Russia. Under the cir
cumstances, therefore, anything like a
serions disturbance is regarded as im
possible. "The official papers have published
strongly-woided warnings, and the city
is placarded with notices that all who
disturb the peace will be severely pun
ished." CHANNEL ALMOST BLOCKED.
Japaness Can Easily Finish tho Bottling
of Port Arthur.
London, April 6. Fuitber reports
of skiimishing between .the Russians
and Japanese in the Yalu river legion
are reaching London, but no reliable
details are given.
The Daily Telegraph's Seoul corres
pondent believes that the defenses of
Port Arthur have been so weakened
that the early capture of the port is to
be expected. There is little doubt, tbe
correspondent says, that only a narrow
passage is left and that at the first
favorable opportunity the Japanese
will block the channel. The Russians
have taken many 12-inch guns out of
their ships to arm the old and new de
fenses of Port Arthur.
A correspondent of the Morning Post
at Yinkow says that the position there
is daily becoming stronger. A fort
night ago the Japanese could have
landed with comparative ease, while
now they would experience great diffi
The corrspondent says be has re
ceived trustworhy information that the
concentration of troops along tbe rail
way has been so rapid that it is now
impossible for tbe Japanese to carry
the war into Manchuria, with any hope
of success, and that the most they can
do is to isolate Port Arthur and possibly
FOR TREATY WITH RUSSIA.
Ambassador Working for Protection ol
St. Petersburg, April 6. Ambassador
McCormick is negotiating with the for
eign office for a treaty with Russia
which will give to the United . States
corporations the right to sue in Russian
courts and to Russian corporations the
right to sue in courts of the United
Under the Russian law, United
States corporations can be sued, but
cannot sue in the courts of the empire.
This has caused United States firms
great annoyance as well as losses in the
past. In addition the ambassador
hopes to secure in the treaty a broad
clause which will authentically give to
United States corporations all privileg
es in whatever character, now enjoyed
by the corporations of any foreign
Although there ire difficulties (n the
way of accomplishing the desired re

been met in the friendliest spirit and
the indications are that his negotia

The only countries now enjoying the
privileges which Ambassador McCorm

States are Germany, Greece, Bulgaria
Coal Found Near Port Arthur. .
St. Petersburg, April 6. A conw
pondent of the Associated Press at Port

The Chinese prophesying new attempts
to block the channel are at the present
moment awed. All is quiet in port
snd the situstion is unchanged through
out the peninsula. Deposits of coal
similar to that of Catdiff, Wales, have
been found in the vicinity of Port

HAPPENINGS HERE IN OREGON
HEARS CONVICT CRY.
Pictures el Discharged Mea No Longer
to Be Olveo Out.
Salem In sccoidance with instruc
tions from Governor Chamberlain, the
fenitentiary authotities have discon
tinued the practice of furnishing peace
officers with pictuies and descriptions
of all discharged prisoners. This
change in the rules of tbe institution
was made a few weeks ago upon the be
lief that it would encourage ex-convicts
to try to lead honest lives. -
The custom of sending out descrip
tions of discharged prisoners was adopt
ed in response to requests from chiefs
of police in the cities. The police offi
cers wanted the descriptions so that
whea a convb t had been discharged
they could be on the lookout for him
and could more easily locate him if he
committed any offense. Several inci
dents which came to the attention of
the governor convinced him that more
harm than good resulted from the send
ing out of the descriptions, and he di
rected that the practice be stopped.

some time juat beyond the junction of
the Walla Walla river and the O. R. &
N., a mile north of Milton, where the
river bed is almost on a level with the

the piers in the O. R. & N. trestle over
the river have caught brush, floating
logs and debris of all kinds, causing
tbe current to cut into tbe gravelly low
banks on either side and scurry over
the land. The piers are only 16 feet
The railroad has material on the
ground to build a new span which will

snow is fast melting and tributaries of
the Umatilla nar the base of the
mountains are overflowing. There is
fear if tbe river gets too high that the

Rich Find of Iron Ore.
Oregon City Residents in West
Oregon City this week discovered a
rich deposit of iron ore in the vicinity
of Willamette Falls. The ore assays
54 per cent metallic iron, and the de
posit is believed to be quite extensive,
since the same quality ore has been
found in a number of the ravines and
side hills surrounding Willamette falls.
The land on which the discovery has
been made belongs to the Oregon Iron
& Steel company, and members of the
corporation are now investigatiang the
extent and value of the find.
Suver Warehouse Burned.
Independence The McClain ware
house at Suver, a few miles south of
here, has been destroyed by fire. The
building and all of the contents were
burned. About 12,000 bushels of
wheat and 1,500 bushels of oats were
lost. With the exception of about 600
bushels of oats, owned by Mr. McClain,
it is thought the loss will be small on
the grain, as it was insured. The loss
to farmers will be slight, as 60 bushels,
will comprise the Iobs.
