Washington, Aug. 10. In the midst of the stirring news from other
quarters the officials here remain in a state of anxiety and Iwyc doubt as to
the actual condition of affairs at Manilla. The only information of an of
ficial character which has been received yet wa a brief dispatch from
Wlldman, at Hong Kong, crediting tho report of Manila's surrender and the
withdrawal of Captain General Augustln.
The sudden change In the conditions at Manila havo led to much con-
jeeture. It remains to be seen yet whether the bombardment occurring
after the formal proclamation of peace creates anv cninnliR.tr.innc. Tim
authorities hero do not believe that complications will arise, as It is evident
the American commanders acted without knowledge of what the two gov

how my leg Is getting along. It Is
all right; tho flesh Is growing out over
the shin bono and Is turning white,
tt is rot straight yet, but I think It
vvlll be as straight as the other leg
when warm weather comes on. I can
work most of the time. Tho other
doctors told me I could never be
cured without splitting it and scrap
ing the bone, but they are mistaken.
It is getting well without cutting or
scraping, so they do not know as much
as they thought they did, butyouure
all right, for you haye done lint what
you said you could do. I will answer
any questions you ask about my leg.

ashinqton, Aug. 10. The presl-
has appointed military and naval
officers who will compose the Cuba
and Porto Rice commissions. It Is
probable that tho names will be as

J. S. Wade, MaJorGoneral M. C.
Butler and Admiral W. T.Sampson.
Porto Rice commission -Major-Gen-
eral John R. Brooke, Major-General
Theodore Schwan and Admiral Win-
field S. Schley.
It will be noticed that the namo of
Fitzhugh Lee docs not appear In the
list of the Cuban cduiniissIonr3. The
omission was not Intentional. Gen
eral Lee was orlplnallv Blated for a
place on the commission, but will not
serve, owing to his desire to remain at
the head of his army corps. - It is ex
pected that Tills corps, the Seventh,
will cyentually be sent toCuba, and
in that event, General Lee will go
to the island at its head, preferring
that position to thecommlssloncrshlp.
An vauthorltatlye statement has
been made to the effect that Senator
Allison, will not be a member of the
Peace commission. The membership
was urged by the president. Senator
Allison will not be ablo to accept.

ber first the Southern Paci lie railroad
Company will put Into effect a uw
tariff that Is designed to make a radi
cal change in the movement of grain
from the Willamette valley, nereto.
fore the Willamette valley grain has
come to Portland for export. The
short crop in California thl3 year
makes It possible to move Oregon
grain southward by rail, and the
Southern Pacific Is placing itself In
position to take advantage of the
opportunity for a longer haul.
The new tariff will be based on
sums of the lowest locals. The local
rate from a valley shipping point, to
Portland will be added to tho water
rate from Portland to San Francisco.
At present the water rate from Port
land to'San Frauclsco Is 82.50 per ton;
from Woodburn to Portland the rate
Is $1.50 per ton. The Southern
Pacific adds these two rates together
making a rate of ti. per ton from
Woodburn to San Francisco. From
all points on tM Willamette river,
where the rates are atWtrnrlly tixed,
