Warinlps Will Compel Russia to Olve Up
I-ondon, July 21. It is believed by
leading naval officials here, who are
cognizant of certain sweeping orders is
sued yesterday by the admiralty, that
the British government intends to com
pel Russia to surrender the Peninsular
& Oriental liner Malacca, seized as
prize of war by the Russian cruiser St.
Petersburg, and en route to Liban
under a prize crew. It is also gener
ally understood in naval circles that
no other Britirih ships will be stopped
by the Russians after the British cruis
ers reach the scene.
The orders to commanders of the lat
ter vessels are declared to he short, but
explicit, and provides that British ves
sels shall tie free to navigate Eastern
waters, without recognizing the war
ahips of any other power, or the right
10 seareti them for contraband.
One of the developments yesterday
was l be detachment by Admiral Dom
villu, commanding the Medlerranean
fleet, of his two swiftest cruisers to pro
ceed at full speed to Poit Said, which
is at t ne northern end of the Suez ca
nal. it is understood that these two
vessels will arrive ut Port Said before
the Malacca, and be there when the
latter emerges from the canal. It is
considered likely that they will compei
the Russians to give up their prize, al
though, of couise, their future action
is carefully guarded, and laymen can
only conjecture and reason from the at
titude of the naval chiefs.
Naval officers generally agree that
such action can he confidently expected,
and they are for the most part now dis
cussing the probable attitude of Russia
when the Malacca is taken by force.
FLEET ON RAID.
Vladivostok Ships Enter Paclllc Ocean
and Take Japanese Steairur.
Tokio, July 21. The Vladivostok
squadron has ovtrbauled a Japanese
steamer eastwaid ot lsugar straits.
The name of the vessel captured and
her fate has not yet been learned.
The Vladivostok squadron, unac
companied by toipedo boats, entered
the Pacific ocean today at o'clock.
Kb destination is unknown, but it is
suggested it ponsibly plans to raid tne
east coast of Japan and then either re
turn to Vladivostok, escaping to the
southward, or attempting to form a
junction with the Port Arthur fleet.
The squadron was discovered in tne
straits of Tsugar at 3 o'clock this moin-
ng, steaming rapidly eastward.
At 3:30 A. M. it was reported off
Tappicape, and at 7 A. M. observers at
Hakkodate discovered and reported io
Tokio that it was then steaming east
Warnings have gone out to shipping
along the eastern const of Japan and
merchantmen are hurriedly seemng
over. It is expected tbat most of the
shipping will be warned before the
Russian ships can inflict seiiousdam-

Llao Said to Be Sealed.
London. July 21. The Times Tokio
correspondent, cabling under date of
July 19 says: "Japanese mimary
critics anticipate renewed efforts by
General Kuropatkin to recover the Mo
Tien positions, which are essential to
the security of hit army if it remaine
in the present position." The corre
spondent adds that it is rumored in
Tokio that three Japanese torpedo boat
destroyeis have sealed the Liao river,
where the Russian gunboat Sivoutch
and a Russian torpedo destroyer are
Forty-Six Clerks Employed.
Yankton, S. D., July 21. Seven
thousand people registered for Rosebud

Russia la Pleased.
St. Petersburg, July 21. The United
States has informed Russia that she
will be glad to join Great Britain in
the protection of the seals at the Kom
mander islands. This act will doubt

understood that RiiBsia will communi

Cannot Um tbe Dardanelles fur Hit
London, July 20. Two naval orders
were issued today by the British ad.
roiralty, which are believed to indicate
a determination on the part of Great
Britain to protect Biitiah shipping
from acts of aggresaion at the hands of
the Russian navy. "
The first order diiecls the Med iter
ranean fleet to sail at inue from Gib'
ralter and proceed to Alexandria,
Egypt, near the mouth of the Suez
The second order directs two of the
fastest British armored cruisers to pro
ceed through the canal and take up
stations in the Red sea at points where
several British ships have been held up
the last few days by the vessels of the
Russian volunteer squadron.
While the fact that these orders were
issued was carefully guarded, and no
public statement of their scone is nro-
curable, theie is no doubt that the
British foreign oflice has decided that
the time has come to act promptly in
protecting British shipping, and to nut
an end to any aggression ou the part of
the hussian cruiBers. Well informed
naval officers believe that the dispaUh
of this powerful Mediterranean fleet to
the vicnity of the Red sea, and the sta
tioning of two of the crack vessels of
the squadron directly in at the points
where the Russians are cairying things
with a high hand, means that no furth
er molestation of vessels living the
British flag will be permitted.
LOST 1,000 MEN.
Russians Attack Japanese at Mo Tien
Pass and are Repulsed.
St. ' Petersburg, July 20. General
Kuropatkin reports that Lieutenant
General Count Keller lost over 1,000
lied or wounded in the attack on Mo
Tien pass, July 17.
The following dispatch fiom General
Kuropatkin to the emperor, dated July
17, "on our Eastern front," was given
"After the occupation hv General
Kurc ki'g army of the passes iu the r en-
sliui mountain chain, our information
concerning h s disposition was, in gen
"According to some reports his army
had been reinforced and had even ex
tended his forces toward Saimatsza.
Other reports said that a displacement
of his troops had been made in the di
rection of Ta pass and Siuyjen. There
were even indications that Kuroki had
transferred his headquarters uom Tsk
hahekanan to Touinpu.
"At about 6:30 on the morning of
July 17, the Japanese, in consideiable
strength, and with numerous guns, oc
cupied Wa Fankwan pass, and on the
mountainous bluffs to the south, on
the flank of General Kastalinsky's col
umn. From this position and from
the ciest of tne mountains to the east
of the heights surmounted by the tem
ple, the enemy directed a very heavy
rifle and artillery fire.
"General Kashtalinsky advanced to
occupy the bluffs, sending forward at
once one and then three battalions, but
the attempt failed, notwithstanding
the support given by the horse moun
tain battery, as our field guns could
not be brought into action on account
of the nature of the ground.
"Our losses have not yet Deen exact
ly ascertained, but General Keller re
ports that they exceed 1,000.
Two More Steamers Held Up.
London, July 20. The Daily Mail's
correspondent at Aden lays that the
British steameis Woodcock and Dal
matia were held up by the Russians in
the Red sea and detained for three
hours. The correspondent says the
captain of the Russian volunteer .fleet
steamer St. Petersburg has notified the
British residents at Aden to wire the
British consul at Suez and Port Said
that he would seize any British steam
ers bound for the Far East, if the con
tents of their packages weie not clearly
shown on their manifests.
Cholera kills Hundreds.
Baku, Russia, July 20. Refugees
from Teheran tell terrible Stories of the
ravages of cholera. They say that on
some days the mortality reached 000.
The Eupropeans are abandoning their
property, and are fleeing to a camp in
the mountains. There is a pitiable
condition ot affairs at the railroad sta
tions which almost are without food.
The government ordered the closing ol
the frontier for the purpose of prevent
ing the introduction of the d sease.
To Prevent Mosquito Invasion.
Washington, July 20. General
Davis, governor general of the Panama
canal strip, has advised the Panama
canal commission that he wants 100,
000 yards of wire gauze to prevent mos
quito invasion in the zone. General
Davis says that this will be perhaps
the largest order for mosquito netting
ever given. He recommends the use of
steel wire screens not coarser than 17
meshes to the square inch, galvanized.
Ammunition Factory lor Ottawa.
Ottawa, July 20. Sir I redei ick Bor
den, minister of militia, has under way
a contract with the English firm, of
which Sir William Armstrong is head,
for the construction of an ammunition
factory in Ottawa, capable of turning
out 20,000,000 rounds of ammunition
VIOLATB RULES OF WAR.
The Japanese War Oflice Publishes
Charges Against Russians.
Tokio, July 20. The Japanese war
office has made public a statement
charging the Russians with violation
of lecognized rules of warfare. The
statement alleges that on two occasions
the white flag has been violated; that
once a Russian column filed persistent
ly on a field hospital where the Red
Cross flag was flying conspicuously,
thus compelling the Japanese to remove
the hospital amidst great danger.
Twice, it is alleged, the Russians
flied on the men of the Japanese hos
pital corps, although their badges could
readily lie distinguished. On three oc
casions Japanese have been stabtied,
slashed and mutilated. On one occa
sion the Russians are declared to have
stolen rattle and horses from noncom
hatantsand to have violated women,
ft is also claimed that numerous cases
can lie cited where the Russians have
wantonly fired on the Japanese
wounded aud that they have refused to
premit parties who were succoring the
wounded on both sides to go tin molest
These charges are made by Geneial
Oku and it is slated that further
charges will be made, growing out of
the expenences of General Kuroki's
In explaining the publication of
these charges, the Japanese general
staff states that they had no desire to
take such action, but in view of Rus
sia's charges that thvy made through
the French papers there was rothing
else left for I hem to do.
HELD UP BY SHOT.
Russian Steamer Stops British Vessel In
the Red Sea.
London, July 20. A dipsatch from
Aden to the Daily Mail says that the
captain of the British steamer Waipara
repoits that the Russian volunteer
steamer St. Petersburg signalled him
to stop by firing across the bows of his
vessel on July 15, while 20 miles off
Jebel Zugur, in the Red sea.
The Russians examined the papers
of the Waipaia and declared they
would hold his ship as a prize. The
captain protested, and was taken on
board the St. Petersburg, where he
gave the Russian officers a guarantee
that there were neither arms nor am
munition on board the Waipara destin
ed for Japan. The vessel was detained
for four hours and was then allowed to
Tbe captain confirms the report that
the Peninsular & Oriental company's
steamer Malaica was seized in th Red
sea July lti by the St. Petersburg on
the ground that she carried arms and
ammunition of war for the Japanese
BREAK OF A GREAT DAM.
Pennsylvania Valley Flooded and Much
Scottdale, Pa., July 20. With the
roar of Niagara, the new reservoir of
the Citizens' Water compaany burst at
midnight and more than 300,000,000
gallons of water rushed down the val
ley, sweeping buildings in its path.
It was discovered about 9 o'clock
that, the dam was in danger of break
ing and messengers were hastily sent
through the valley to warn the people.
Hundreds of lives were thus saved, foi
a few hours later the whole valley was
The damage to the machinery and
reservoir alone will amount to at least
$50,000. When the torrent swept
down upon the valley, uuildings were
torn from their foundations ami carried
on the crest of the great wave line so
many washtubs. Crops valued at
thousands of dollars were completely
Profit From a Volcano.
Mexico City, July 20, The formal
transfer of the volcano Popocatepetl
to New York capitalists will be com
pleted this week. The Inter-Ocean
railway will take the sulphur from the
volcano to Vera Cruz. It is believed
that sulphur can be landed at New
York for 48 per ton (gold), which
would make the sulphur an effective
competitor of the Italian article. The
reorganization is interpreted here to
mean that the German directors weie
not willing to support the Standard in
fighting the other oil interests.
Bound to Prevent Passage.
London, July 20. The Standard's
Tokio correspondent, cabling under
date of July 17, says the Jiji Shimpo,
in an editorial, expresses the hope that
Gteat Britain will see that Turkey
lends Russia no assistance by allowing
steamers of the volunteer fleet to pass
the Dardanelles. The Jiji Shimpo de
clares that Great Britain is hound, tin
der the terms of the Anglo-Japanese
alliance, to prevent such assistance
Hemmed In By Big Fire.
Oroville, Cal., July 20. Fire at the
Bella View mine, near La Porte, today
destroyed the mill, engine room and
other buildings close to the mouth of
the big tunnel. A huge pile of timber
lay close to the mouth of . the tunnel
and this caught on fire. Four, men
were working in the tunnel when the
fire broke out and fears are entertained
for their safety, as the tunnel is strong
ly timbered and it is thought these
timbers will catch fire from the huge
fire now blazing.
Bandits Raid at Will.
Tangier, July 20. The mountain
trilies, apparently satisfied that they
have nothing to fear from the govern
men, are looting the entire countryside
outside of Tanger. They approached
to within a few miles of this place yes
terday and carried away hundreds of
head of sheep and cattle.
HAPPENINGS HERE IN OREGON
linn farmers hit hard.
Late Spring and Long Dry Spell Have
Albany Rain, which was general
over the Willamette valley last week,
came too late to lie of gieat benefit to
farmers. Had the showers come two
weeks earlier, thousands of dollars
would have been saved for the farmers
of Linn county. As it is, the crops
are far below tbe average for . Linn
county farmers, In many instances are
a total failure. The only benefit the
farming community will derive from
the rains will be in the way of gardens
and the very late sown spring oats, of
which there is a small acreage.
For two months not a drop of rain
fell on the grain fields of the conntv.
This is drouth almost unprecedented
here. Its evil effect was aggravated
by the late spring rains. Farmers gen
eially were depending upon putting in
a greater acreage than usual in spring
sown grain, and the unusually bad
weather of the late winter seemed to
assure some good working days in the
early spring. Instead of this, the rain
held on until almost too bite to plant
the spring grain at all, and wl en good
weather did come, it developed into a
The result is that spring grain is
heading a few inches from the ground,
and much of it will not lie bound at
all. That which is threshed will
yield poorly. The heads are small and
very poorly filled. Nor is the fall sown
grain of its usual standard of excel
lence. That part of the fall grain that
was sowed on low ground will be fair,
in some instances making three-fourths
of a crop rarely promising a full crop.
The hay crop has not averaged more
than half what it was in years gone
by. The haying season is about over,
and the geneial report is half a crop.
Hub will put farmtrs in i inn county
in hard circumstances this fall. Al
ready many of them are buying feed
for their stock, and but few will have
enough to last the winter through.
The price of feed ia rising in the coun
ty, and the mills are selling it every
lay to the farmers who were never
compelled to buy feed at any season

Laborers Needed at Oregon City.
Oregon City I-abor of all kinds was
never more plentiful nor were wages
ever better than they are in this city
this season. It seems impossible to
find available men to perform the
many improvements that are being
made. The Willamette Pulp & Paper
mills bas been advertising (or addition
al men to assist in tbe building of their
new nulls where 200 laborers are al
ready employed. The management of
the local woolen mills is finding it next
to impossible to engage a sufficient
force of operatives.
Cinnabar May Be Found.
Grants Pass W. C. Slade, who has
a placer mine on Johnson gulch; a trib
utary of Sucker creek, near California
Bar, has located a four-foot ledge of
gold bearing quartz, partially on his
placer claims. Mr. Slade is a firm be
liever in the excellence of his section
as a mineral district and believes that
valuable deposits of cinnabar will in
time be uncovered. Mi . Slade says he
has found amalagmatedgold in running
drifts, 40 feet below the surface.

HUN1 PASS OVER CASCADES.
Mlnto Believes Stock Can
Driven Over Mountains.
Albany John Minto, of Salem, one
of the pioneers in the Santiam moun
tain district of Oregon, will in a few
days head a party from the end of the
Corvallis & Eastern railroad, on the
north fork of the Santiam river, in
quest of a shorter route to connect the
railroad with the Deschutes country in
Eastern Oregon. v
Mr. Minto has loug entertained the
idea that there is a pass through the
Cascade mountains at this point where
it would be possible to construct a trail
for driving stock overland from the
Eastern Oregon ranges to the eastern
end of the Corvallis & Eastern line.
He has interested Manager Edwin
Stone, of the Corvallis S Eastern. In
the work, and an effort to lay out the
route of the proposed route will be
made in a few days.
The old Minto trail, which extends
from the end of the old railroad grade
to the Eastern Oregon country, has
been used for years by those who know
the short cuts that connect the western
and eastern parts of the Btate. But
Mr. Minto Is satisfied that there is a
shorter cut yet, and that it could be
made of great service to the stockrais-
ers of Eastern Oregon in shipping their
stock to market.
Developing Lime Deposit.
Roseburg Messrs. Greenlev and
Strand, of Portland, have 10 or 12 men
at work building a tramway and fur
nace for the manufacture of lime on
the farm of Hon. Plinn Cooper, seven
miles south of this city. Thev have
bonded 100 tores of land containing
rich limestone deposits and expect to
develop same on an extensive scale.
The modern continuous furnace system
win be used. A railway sour liack.
bout three miles long, will probably
lie put in from the main line of the H.
P. R. R., at Green's station.
