Do you believe in arbitration or indus

have voted whether they will give their leaders

You pay for rail transportation 3 billion

hovering off the Oregon coast today, ac
cording to Captain H. H. Michaelson,
master of the steam schooner Hardy.
He declares that while near Rogue
River shortly after midnight the war
ship suddenly loomed up out of the
darkness and passed close to him. He
could see its four funnels silhouetted
against the sky. A lookout hailed him
unintelligibly, and the vessels quickly
drew apart. .

long night session.

The victory was the greatest .ever
won by the union. It was the third big
victory in three big cites in a little
over three years. The other triumphs
were in Boston and Chicago. Where
there was extreme violence in the Boa

year ago in Chicago was exceeded in
orderliness by the New York triumph.
Mayor Mitchell and Oscar Strauss of
the publio service commission were re

differences will be settled by a board of
three, one to be appointed by each of
the opposing factions and one to be
chosen by Straus.
Sent to Your Summer Vacation
Berlin, via wireless to Sayville, L.
I., Aug. 8. Austrian and Italian naval
forces engaged in a fight in the Adri
atic on August 2 while the Austriaus
were returning from a ram, it was an
nounced in an official statement from
the Austrian admiralty received here
today. The Italians were hit and
turning southward, disappeared.
The Austrian admiralty admitted
that the Austrian torpedo boat Magnet
was damaged by an enemy submarine
on the same day.
"Austrian torpedo boats on August
2 shelled military objects at Wolfetto,
destroying an areop'ane shed, setting
fire to a factory and doing damage,"
said the admiralty's statement.'
"On the return the boats were
joined by the cruiser Aspern and de
veloped an engagement with an Italian
flotilla composed of one cruiser and
six destroyers, me Italians were mt
and turned southward and disappeared.
The Austrian units returned unharmed.
"On the morning of the same day
five hostile aeroplanes bombarded
Durazzo without any damage. They
were repulsed by Austrian naval planes.
One hostile aeroplane was shot down
some miles BOuth of Durazzo.
"The torpedo boat Magnet was at
tacked by an enemy submarine August
2 and damaged near the stern by a
torpedo. Two men were killed, four
wounded and several are missing. The
boat was brought into port."
The Magnet is an old five hundred
ton vessel built in 1896 and is liBted
in naval registers as a torpedo gun
boat. First Flax Put Through
Eugene's New Plant
The first flax to be handled in the
Eugene flax plant was put through the
machines this morning, and the equip
ment wag found to run in excellent
shape. Three or four loads of flax from
one of the poorer fields had been
brought in yesterday and today, and
will be used in the making of tow, to be i
used for upholBtering purposes.
Better grades of the flax will be
brought in from the fields within a few
days, and the process of retting it will
be begun. The retting tanks are being
filled with the Willamette river water,
which, according to Eugene Bosse, the
expert in charge of the Eugene plant, is
excellent for the purpose.
Cutting of the flax is going forward
steadily throughput the territory tribu
tary to Eugene, and the work is now
nearly one-half done. Eugene Guard.
"I quarreled with my wife yesterday
and we havn't spoken since."
"Why don't you make up!"
"I'm going to. All I'm worried
about now is the indemnity."
Hummbg Bird Kills
Two Caged Canaries
Oregon City, Ore., Aug. 8 With mur
der in his soul and bloud on his beak,
an innocent looking little humming
bird mopes todny in a canary cage at
the residence of Mrs. W. W. Leete. The
cage is littered with jellow feathers.
Mrs. Leete declares the humming
bird entered between the bars and killed
her two canaries by stabbing them with
its long bill. Then it was unable to
escape as it had come, and there it was
found, a victim of poetic justice, firmly
imprisoned in the cage with its dead.

Does Not Indorse Part of
Platform Says Hughes
and Wilson All Right
Tndianapolis, Iud., Aug. 8. J. Frank
Hanly, former republican governor of !
Indiana audi recently the coaiiHidajte '
for the Indiana progressive party for'
governor, this afternoon was formally '.
notified of Tils nomination as a candi- j
date .'or president 0' the United States j
by the prohibition party.
lr. Ira Landrith of Boston shortly
afterward received notification of his I
nomination for vice-president. The ;
ceremonies were held on the lawn ofj
the 11a illy home. 1
Early in his speech of acceptance I
Hanly declared that ho neither ap-j
proved nor accepted the initiative,;
referendum and recall plank adopted
liv the party at St. Paul. It was this
nunk adopted by Indiana progrcxHivcs
that caused him to refuse the nomina
tion for governor. ,
Hanly devoted as much time to the
Mexican situation, the tnriff and to
Americanism as he did to prohibition.
" We are failing and havo long
failed to assure and guarantee the
lives and property of Kuropean and
American citizens," said Hanly. "To
meet this duty in the case of Haiti and
San iJouiingu hus been easy and we
have met it. To meet it in the case
of Mexico has been difficult and we
have shirked it."
Hanly said prohibition offered the
best means of preparedness. He came
out strong for Americanism but warned
agnnst militarism in too great pre
paredness. He said so far as a crisis
in American life is concerned it will
"make absolutely no difference wheth
er Wilson or Hughes is elected," for
"both ara intensely American and
jealous of the nation's honor." Both
love peace but cither would sacrifice
it to save tho nation's honor, he said.
He declared " there is no crisis.' '
"ViTtue is its own reward," observ
ed the alleged philosopher.
"Yes," replied the other fellow,
"but the reward is Beldom more than
30 bob a week." London Tnswers.
