the middle and port guns were not in
: good working order. The effect of a
I moderate sea and wind upon the effic
iency of the guns and their range was
very slight. Generally speaking, the
vessel, as a gun platform, behaved very
satifactorily. Many details concerning
steering gear and conning the tower
could be much improved.
As to the natural efficiency of the ves
sel for offensive purposes the board has
little data on which to base an opinion.
On May 20, three shots were fired at a
target towed by the dishing, at a speed
of ten knots across the line of fire, the
Vesuvius steaming, seventeen knots.
One of these would undoubtedly have
struck the vessel. This is considered a
favorable showing under the circum
stances. The board considered the
littiners and appliances for loading and
firing the guns very crude and capable
of great improvement. Ihe ooard
recommends that the guns should be
carefully ranged ; also various modifica
tions of defects found, and the depart
ment has directed the board to recon

for further tests. '
LOTTERY LAW EVASION.
Treasury Department Puts a Stopper In
Washington, May 27. The treasury
department is still struggling to prevent
the sale of lottery tickets in the United
States. The law passed by congress pre
vented the use of the United States mails
in distributing them, and then the lot
tery people went to Mexico and sought,
under the custom law, to import them
into this country as reading matter, at a
light dutv. Assistant Secretary Spauld-
ing put a stop to this by assessing duty
on the face value of the tickets, the duty
being placed at f 2.50 on a ten dollar
ticket. This was thought to be a final
stoppage on their importation. The lot
tery people, fertile in resource, have had
the- tickets printed in the United States,
exported into Mexico and reiinported
into the United States, and now claim
that they are exempt from duty, as
American manufacture, returned with
out being advanced in value or improved
in condition. Assistant Secretary
Spaulding, however, has instructed col
lectors of customs, along the Mexican
border to assume that all lottery tickets
entered are of foreign, manufacture, and
to assess duty accordingly.
W ANA MAKER OUR FRIEND.
r Dally Grows More Enthusiastic Over
the Great and Growing West.
Washington, Mav 27. Although
Postmaster-General Wanamaker will
not discuss the San Francisco -postoffice
site he is always anxious to talk about
his Pacific coast trip. In an interview
he said :
"I thought I knew eoinetuliiir of the
erowine countries before I set my face
TOWaTa the setting sun, but I found be
fore I got to San Diego that the west was
doing more than I conceived. Before we
got on the Union Pacific road to return
and after we bad spun around Washing
ton state I was amazed. The west must
have better mail facilities, faster mails,
more of them and better postoffice facili
ties. How quickly they make a big city
in the west, with - fine buildings, large
factories and beautiful streets and all
that pertains to a metropolis ! There
are no signs of hard times out there.
Everything is progress and enterprise:
What nerve the people show, what profit
their real estate yields."
Mr.- Wanamaker has-been booming the
west and the Pacific coast in this manner
every day since his return.
THE ELUSIVE ITATA.
Charleston at Callao, hut the Other
Vessel Was Not Seen. . , '
Washington, May 28. The navv de
partment today received the first news
from the Charleston since she left Aca-
pulco, the first of last week, in continued
pursuit of the Itata. When the vessel
ailed to touch at Panama within the
time expected, the department said it
was very probable it had been decided
to keep straight on down the coast, and
that the Charleston wovld be heard from
at some Peruvian port. This prediction
is fultillej, for the port at which the
Charleston announced her arrival is Cal
lao. The whereabouts of the Itata are
as far from being known as before, for
Captain Remy reported he had seen
nothing of the Itata in the cruise down
the coast. The Charleston will join the
squadron under Admiral McCann in
Chilian waters, and it is surmised a re
port will at no very distant date come
thence, announcing the peaceful surrend
er by the insurgents of the elusive craft,
which the United States government will
libel and perhaps forfeit for violation of
. Chinese Dens Raided.
Washington, May 27. When China
town was . raided here last night
Californians in Washington were vividlv
reminded of scenes on the Pacific coast.
It is not generally known, but it is a fact
that Washington citv itself, the Athens
of America, has a Chinese quarter that
exists under the very shadow of the
capitol. It is only five or six squares
from the capitol building, south of Penn-
ylvania avenue, in that quarter ot town
frequented by all kinds of low people,
and some sights are quite as disgusting
as any to be seen in Chinatown in San
Franciscc. There are nearly 100 Chinese
here, according to the i -lice census.
The Slar tonight devotes a column to the
scenes in Chinese quarters at last night's
raid, and,, strangely enough, everyhodv
seems to be as greatly interested as if
the fact of such dens lwing among them
was not known before. Altogether, the
Chinese raid may have a rather salutary
effect on next winter's legislation in
New York Recorder" to Suspend.
Aiv iohk, jiay zi. Kumors are cur-1
rent in newspaper circles that the Re
corder, the new morning paper which
was started with flying colors, paying
large salaries and spending large amounts
in lavish advertising, is a bout to suspend
publication. It is said that the million
aire cigarette inen who have been back
ing the pa per are sick of the experiment,
which, it is alleged, was a losing venture
from the start. The failure of John H.
Statin, another big backer, to furnish
help is given as the real cause of the
suspension. It is even said the Recorder
will not appear after next Saturday.

Albina, shall be consolidated into one
city or not. A strong fight is being
made both by consolidationists andanti

An unusual heavy vote was polled
during the forenoon. The indications at
noon were that consolidation will carry.
Three arrests have been made, two for
selling liquor and one for illegal voting.
Reports from East Portland and Al

also have a majority in each city.
It is reported that the anti-consolidation

in East Portland this afternoon, having
given up the fight in Portland.
At 2 :30 this afternoon the indications
are that consolidation will carry in Port
land and East Portland by good ma
jorities, also that the vote in Albina is
favorable to consolidation.

Tokonto, June 1. Discussing the
question what will follow in the event

abandoned in favor of free trade with
the United States. Whoever Sir John's
successor may be the task before him is
one extraordinarily difficult. The lib

consolidation first, to do everything that
is fair and reasonable, but they cannot
be expected to condone things which
they have condemned or to support a
fiscal policy which they know to be

general counsel of the Northern Pacific,

emanating from Philadelphia that the

the proceeds of land sales awarded to the
company by the Manitoba decision.
Until a mandate from the United States
supreme court is handed down he does
not see how the company can be buying

it will be time enough when the com
pany has a land fund in hand for it to
buy stock, and when it is in such posi

it from the house tops.

HARRISON FOR PRESIDENT.
Senator Mitchell Thinks he Will be Re
nomlnatedBIalne Out of the Race.
San Fban-cisco. Mav 30. Senator
Mitchell, of Oregon, who is in the city,
when asked, " Do you think that Presi
dent Harrison will le renominated?"
declined at first to say. In response to
the question, " Is Mr. Blaine out of, the
race, and is he as sick as reported?" he
The reports of Mr. Blaine's illness are
undoubtedly exaggerated. I saw him
near the White house just before he left
for New York. He was pleasant and
genial, as he always is, but his face had
a peculiar ashen color and wearied look
which undoubtedly came from hard
work. He is sick, but he has no portal
malady. I am convinced of that just as
I am satisfied that he has no presidential
aspirations. He has given them up.
There is practically nothing to stop the
president's nomination. To be candid,
under these circumstances, I think that
he will be the man. I agree with the
opinion of Senator Ingalls, expressed in
his letter to the republican editors of
Kansas, that Harrison will again be the
standard bearer. Who the democrats
will nominate I am not in a position to
express a sound opinion upon, but it
looks like Cleveland.
When asked what figure the third
partv movement, the farmers' alliance,
woufd cut in the campaign, the senator
From a republican standpoint it is a
menace to success. There is danger that
they may carrv Nebraska, Kansas and
perhaps one other western state hereto
fore republican, and possibly one South
ern state, which, of course, would throw
the election into the house. I have no
faith, however, that any Southern state
will go for the alliance electors.

New York, May 30. A remarkable

sending of Dav d Waldo Pierce to Sing

Movements of the Charleston.
Washington, May 30. No advices
from the Charleston were receivsd at the
navy department today, and she is prob
ably still at Callao coaling. No inform
ation can be obtained at the department
as to what instructions have been sent
her, but the opinion is that she has re
ceived orders to discontinue her efforts
to capture the Itata, and it is believed
that an arrangement for the peaceful sur
render of the Itata' has been made, and
that she will be turned over to this gov
ernment for trial. The Charleston
should finish coaling today, and if her
machinery is in order, proceed on her
voyage, but to what point cannot be
learned here. Some think she will pro
ceed to Iquique,' while others express the
opinion that she will return to San Fran
cisco and be held in readiness for duty
in Behring sea, shou.d her services be re
quired there. , ,

California fruit trees show up better

THEY SHOULD RESIGN.
The spectacle of Dr. Briggs and Heber
Newton holding on to membership, not
to say official positions, in churches to
whose teaching they are diametrically
opposed is neither edifying to the public
nor honorable to the gentlemen them
selves. When a preacher can no longer
teach the doctrines of a church he has
sworn to defend common honesty sug
gests his resignation. ' He has no busi
ness to rend a communion which has re
ceived him into its embrace. The world
is wide enongh and there is ample room
for his talents elsewhere. If Dr. Briggs
cannot believe in the inspiration of the
scriptures and the doctrine of the incar
nation and the resurrection, every
.principle of manhood demands that he
should sever his connection with a
church to which these are cardinal
A short time ago Dr. Bridgman, pastor
of a a Baptist church in New York city
embraced views, on the nature of future
punishment, at variance with those gen
erally held by that denomination, when
he quietly resigned despite the argent
entreaty of members of his church to re
main. No man. thinks, anything- the
less of Dr. Bridgman for having changed
his opinions and "he went out from the
church which he had so nobly served
with the respect of every man . in it,
whose love and respect are worth the
having." The future influence of such a
man, other things being equal, will be
tenfold greater than that of a cowardly
polemic who remains to distract and
rend a church with whose teaching he
has no sympathy.
WE MEAN BUSINESS.
We learn from the Goldendale Sentinel
that the Columbia River Navigation Co.,
have given a mortgage on the New York
Trust Co., for one million dollars, and
that the bond has been filed with the
county auditor at Goldendale. The same
paper informs us that Mr. Seabrook, the
civil engineer of the company has made
the statement that a large number of
men will soon be at work on the portage
on the Washington side of the dalles of
the Columbia. Mr. Seabrook informed
the Sentinel that the route will go about
two and a half miles north of Dalles City
but he gave it as his opinion that " the
ideas advanced by parties at The Dalles,
in regard to a portage being built on that
side of the river are somewhat vision
ary." We 'may not know exactly what
Mr. Seabrook means but if he intends to
say that the men who have incorporated
to build a portage on this side are not in
earnest, the gentleman was never more
mistaken in his life. If by " visionary"
Mr. Seabrook means that a road on this
side is impracticable, we answer, that is
a matter that has never been proved.
The incorporators of the TJregon portage
pat a surveying party in the field two
weeks ago and but for an accident that
caused the distraction of an important
surveying instrument, that cannot be re
placed without some delay, the survey
would, by this time, have been nearly
finished. As soon as the broken instru
ment can be replaced the survey will be
renewed. Till then and until the proof of
the practicability of the road has been
tested we mast content ourselves with
saying that we are dead in earnest about
having a portage on this side and fully
hope to accomplish our purpose.
Mr. William Holder, state lecturer for
the grange, returned yesterday from at
tending the meeting of the state grange
just held at Hillsboro. He says it was
the largest and most enthusiastic meet
ing the grange has had for many years,
Reports from all quarters showed that
the order was . never id a more prosper
ous condition : He attributes this largely
to the fact that the grange continues to
keep, aloof from all political entangle
ments. In common with many others
Mr. Holder believes that' no secret so
ciety should go into partisan politics.
steadfast adherence to this policy will
canse the grange to continue in vigorous
existence when other political farmers1
organizations shall have passed away
As an order, therefore, the grange will
not affiliate with any third party move
ment, while individual members are left
free to do as they please. Such a course
make the grange a poor field for the tal
ents of the chronic office-seeker or the
disgruntled politician, bat the order will
suffer nothing on this account. A vote
was taken on Wednesday on the question,

among the grangers, so that its provis

the next election, and those only sup
ported for office who will pledge them
selves in its favor. If the bill should
prove satisfactory to the grangers it may
cut no important figure in the next elec

framing and passing a good assessment
law they will have done no small service
to the country.- We are pleased to find
them engaged in this work and wish
them abundant success.
' The Eatt Oregonian says : "The pros

LET VS BE FAIR.
What is one man's meat is another
man's poison is a very trite and homely
proverb but it applies with peculiar
force to the question of a protective
tariff. From a strictly non-partisan
stand-point it seems hardly fair to find
fault with the McKinley bill because, as
the New York Evening Post alleges, it
ha3 raised the price of such household
necessities as meats, flour, potatoes,
butter and other domestic products
about fifteen per cent. During the pas
sage of the bill both its friends and foes
protested they were fighting- in the
interest of the producers. If, as the
Post insinuates, higher prices for farm
products have resulted through the suc
cess of the protectionists, we submit,
that in all fairness, low tariff men should
be the last to complain. If these latter
really had the interest of the farmer at
heart when they fought for a low tariff
or a tariff for revenue only, they will
now rejoice at better prices and the
prospect of still better for farm products,
no matter by what means these prices
were brought about. It is nothing but
demagogy and the most contemptible
form of partisanship to appeal to the

pointing to higher prices for such articles
as we have named say "Behold the effect
of a high tariff." The fact is, apart
from all politics, nothing gives us greater
hope for the prosperity of the whole
country in times to come than the pros
prospect of better prices for everything
the farmer has to sell. When the
farmer is prosperous, the whole country
is prosperous, and the man who loves
his country's prosperity better than

The Goldendale Seatinel facetiously re
fers to a class of farmers who " farm with
their mouth." They own no land, never
plowed a furrow in their lives, know
nothing of the art of tilling the soil, but
are ever ready to give the farmer lots of
advice as to what he should do and how
he should vote. The only thing that
this class produces is taffy which they
administer to the real farmers at cost.
Taffy, however, is poor stuff for steady
An exchange calls attention to the fact

One of the leading banking firms in
Paris, on the recommendation of a Lon
don correspondent, engaged an English
clerk of the name of Stephenson. For
about three years the man's punctuality
Was altogether unprecedented. He came
to his work at 9 in the morning and did
bot leave the office before the last stroke
of 5. He was not a man, he was a clock.
Besides, daring the whole time he never
asked for a holiday. One fine morning,
however, to the great surprise of his su
perior, -Stephenson blush5 ngly craved
permission to absent himself for an hour
on the following day.
Next day at 13 he left the office. It
was observed that a carriage stood wait-'
ing for him at the door. At 1 o'clock he
drove up again in the same carriage and
resumed his calculations as cool and self
possessed as if nothing had happened.
This short absence puzzled the brains of
all the employes in the bank. The prin
cipal himself, eager to obtain the solu
tion of the enigma, invited this paragon
of clerks to dinner. Between two glasses
of Chambertin the banker said, "You
will not think me indiscreet if I ask yon
what yon did with yourself in that hour's
leave of absence yon applied for last
"Oh! dear nor replied Stephenson, "1
went and got married!" Measager
Insulted by a Woman.
"Oh, yes, m remember Detroit; no
fear about that," said sweet voiced Dora
Wiley as she rocked to and fro in an easy
chair in the Russell House. "I shall re
member it as the first place in which I
was really insulted, and by a woman
"How and when did all this happen?"
asked the reporter.
"One night this week," continued Miss
Wiley in reply. "A woman satin one
of the boxes with her back to the stage.
One could bear that sort of thing for a
little while, but when an auditor turns
his or her back squarely on yon for a
whole evening yon cannot drive from
your mind the impression that an insult
is intended. Well, that was the feeling
that came to mind as scene after scene
of the play went by, and still that wom
an sat there.
"I became so annoyed exasperated, 1
might say that I could hardly sing at
all. It affected others on the stage the
same, but perhaps to a less extent. The
legitimate result, of coarse, was to take
onr minds off our work to a certain ex
tent, and to a measure the audience suf
fered by the acta of that one woman, al-1
though, perhaps, they may not have no- j
need it" Detroit Journal,
What an "Inch,r of Bain Means.
Few people can form a definite idea of
what is involved in the expression, "An
inch of rain." It may aid such to follow
this curious calculation: An acre is equal
to 6,272,640 square inches; an inch deep
of water on this area will be as many
cubic inches of water, which, at 227 to
tbe gallon, is 22,000 gallons. This im
mense quantity of water will weigh 220,-
000 pounds, or 100 tons. , One-hundredth
of an inch (0.01) alone is equal to one ton
of water to the acre. St. Lonis Bepublio.
