Arraignment of the New Board by a
Member of the Old One.
Grants Pass, Or., July 20. -To the
editor. I see by a local item In your
paper of tho 18th that the new board of
railroad commissioners claim to have
amicably arranged a new tarlfl of
freight rates for the Southern Pacific
company, which tile commissioners say
makes a substantial reduction in tbe
company's revenue, and la particularly
advantageous to Southern Oregon. It
W also stated therein that this Is more
than tbe old board was able to do, al
though J sought to make a reduction
fr nearly two years. As a member of
the muiih-detoatcd "old board," I feel it
my duty to say that there is grave
doubt of tbe new tariit'a proving a gen
uine blessing to tbe people of Oregon, if
It was obtained without a struggle. It
is hard to believe that the Southern Pa
cific Company "has got religion" and
repented, or that it has so fallen lu love
with tbe present board as to allow that
worthy body to cut ita rates in any sub-
latuntifll particular without a vigorous
Neither is it true tbut the old board
was unsuccessful in tbe matter of re
ducing rates. It effected a reduction
on the lines of the Union Pacific of
over $40,000 per annum, which tbe peo
ple have enjoyed for one year and will
continue to enjoy unless a new revis
ion Is permitted or made by the present
commission. It also sought for and es
tablished a revised schedule on. tbe
Southern Pacific Company's lines,
which reduced its revenues nearly 40-,
000 per annum and the only reason tbe
people of Oregon are not enjoying that.
reduction today la because of the fact
that tbe new board, In their Inscrutable
wisdom, have ignored and devised a
new scheme wbicli tbey say has been
obtained without opposition. Nothing
remained to be done but to wait for the
company to obey the mandate of tbe
supreme court of Oregon, as that hon
orable body a few days ago ended tbe
struggle which the old board inaugu
rated, by deoiaring the revision reason
able. Tbe schedule made by tbe
old board, and declared reason
able by tho supreme court,
provided a material and substantial
reduction of rates on grain, flour, feed,
millstuff8, livestock, fruit, vegetables,
lumber and wool, and applied to tbe
whole line. The adoption of tbe sohed.
ule, as stated In your paper, was re
sisted for two years. The supreme
court of Oregon rendered iU opinion
in January, 1803, declaring the revision
a reasonable one. The company, like
"a drowning man catching at a straw,"
filed a 'motion for rehearing, which
name on during the present month,
and was ably resisted by tbe attorney
general. The motion was overruled
and its former decision adhered to. It
was a complete victory for tjie people,
and it will require a better explanation
from tbe new board for ignoring It and
promu'gatlng a new schedule than
they have given to satisfy the peeplo of
its wisdom. Geo. W. Colviot.

A Portion of History.
London, July 24. The Marquis of
Salisbury three years ago made ap
agreement With Waddington, French
ambassador at London, by which India
should occupy tbe Shan states, between
Burmah and tbo northeast frontier of
Slam, although claimed by Slam, while
France was to have all of the left bank
of tbe MeKong. If this is to, tho ques
tion, as it fleets England will resolve
itself Into a determination of frontiers
by a boundary commission. That
France expected suoh a juxtaposition
of English and French territory Is
shown by an Important article In Paris
Le Temps, wblch declares the theory
of "buffer" states has had Its days as is
proved by tbe mixing up of tbe Eng
lish and French possessions in Asia,
Africa, Oceanica and America. Eng
land herself has been first to destroy
the "buffer" states, and tbe common
frontier is bettor calculated to preserve
peace than tho existence of "buffer"
states, which are generally moro fields
for intrigues of joverzealous function
aries. A Delicate Situation.
New York, July 24 The Sun's In
dian cable says: It not too much to
say that in four capitals, London, Paris
St. Petersburg andPekin, tbe situation
is regarded as presenting greator
danger than any with which diploma
cy has had to deal In several years.
Since tbe terms of the French ul
timatum were made known, the wires
between London and Peking have
been burdened with diplomatic corres
pondence of the highest Importance.
The motives and intention of the
French government are by no means
clear to tbe other powers. Even
England djd not regard tbe situation
as serious until yesterday. It is gener
ally bellved here that Russia will tako

banded to M. Pavto, tho French minis
ter resident in Bangkok, at 2 p, m, Sat
urday, The 48 hours allowed by
France's ultimatum for a reply had not
then expired. The text of the commu
nication is as follews:
"In reply to tbo communication,
which, by order of your government,
you banded to me Thursday, July 20,
at 0:45 in tbe evening, bis majesty, the
king, my august sovereign, charges me
to make to-you tbe following declara declara

cise definition has ever been given him
of what his majesty to to understand by
tbe expression, 'Rights of tbe empire of
Annam and of the kingdom of Cam
bodia,' on tbe left bask of tbe MeKong
river and on tbe Islands of tne MeKong
river. His majesty boa been ever
ready to abandon all tbe territories,
over which the existence of these rights
should have been proven, and Ave
months ago proposed to submit all con
tested points to International arbitra
tion. Now, be subttlts to the pressure
of clrcuateUnoee, In order to restore
peace to bis people and security to tbe
numerous oocamerclal Interests at stake
In bis country. His majesty, therefore,
