Among the papers of the late Anton
Beidl has been found the original proof
print of the orchestra score of Tann
hwnm. prepared for the Paris grand

was one of Wagner's conductors, and
it appears that this volume was pre
sented to him by the composer as a
mark of respect. It is of considerable
value, for almost every page contains
pencil notes, marks of expression, and
so forth, in the Meister's own hand,
while, as the London Wagner Society
will doubtless be chocked to hear in the
"Greeting" of Elizabeth to the Halls
of Song, there is a rather long "cut."

THE COMAL'S CARGO.
Spanish Authorities Will Allow It to
Be Landed at Matanzaa.
-Washington, Sept. 27.—A statement
was iesued by the war department to
night that the Cuban commission had
effected an arranfement with the Span
ish authorities whereby the steamer
Comal, carrying a cargo of supplies for
the suffering people of Cuba, would be
permitted to land her oargo at Matan
zas free of duty. This indicates the
adjustment of a question that promised
for several days to become serious.
The Spanish authorities still maintain
ing Spain's right of sovereignty over
the island of Cuba, refused to permit
the Comal to land at Havana without
the imposition upon her cargo of duties
amounting to $60,000. In addition to
this, the vessel's captain was fined for
disregarding some port regulations un
known to him.
Againet the proceeding the Ameri
can commission strongly protested, and
demanded the free importation of the
Comal's cargo of supplies. It waa
pointed ont to the Spanish that the
mission of the vessel was purely chari
table, and that, in any event, the posi
tion assumed by the Spanish officials
was untenable, as it was not in accord
ance with the provisions of the proto
col signed in this city by Ambassador
Cambon in the name of Spain. The
incident resulted in an exchange be
tween the American commission and
the Spanish officials of lively notes,
and the question was finally referred
to Washington for adjustment. The
arrangement made effects the Comal
only. She is now at Key West, and
will sail for Matanzas probably tonight

FIFTY POUNDS OF GOLD.
Two Oregon Miners Secured a Fortune
In Two Weeks.
Medford, Or., Sept. 28.—The great
est mining excitement ever known in
Southern Oregon has been caused by a
iich strike just made in the Sisfcyou
mountains, one milo from the Jackson
county line, on what is known as Ster
ling butte. William Angle and Jordan
Brown are the lucky discoverers. They
came to Medford last night with 50
pounds of gold dust which they de
posited in the Jackson County bank.
The ledge is of porphyry formation,
and is about 20 feet wide, the pay
streak being from four inches to two
feet in width. They have been pros
pecting for about six weeks, and struck
the pay dirt about two weeks ago.
They have taken out about 60 pounds
of gold, and are very enthusiastic as to
I future developments.
Mr. Angle was formerly a merchant
in Medford. Two years ago, while
selling a bill of goods to a miner
named McCombs, he learned of the
nature of the country in which the
claim is located. He made several
attempts to get tracings, but did not
succeed until this season, when he took
Mr. Brown, a pocket-hunter, with him,
and within two weeks they made a find.
Mr. Angle calls the claim the "Klon
dike," and he says the country is a
fine one for prospecting. The mine is
7,200 feet above sea level. It is situ
ated 15 miles from Coles station, on
the Southern Pacific railroad.
Gale at Tonswanda.
Tonawanda, N. V., Sept. 28.—A ter

Houses and bains were smashed tc
kisdling wood, trees uprooted, and
many persona injured. It had been
raining for an hour when, at 4:15, a
iegnlar hurricane swept across the Ni
agara river. Samuel Monnett, a milk
wagon driver, was caught in the
storm. His rig was rushed along the
street at lightning speed until wrecked.
Monnett is believed to be fatally in
jured. Mrs. Charles Peters and Mrs.
Henry Peters, the latter carrying an
infant, were picked up and hurled vio
lently against a building. Both wo
men were picked up unconscious. It
is estimated the damage to the property
will reach $100.
Now Favor Revision.
Paris, Sept. 28.—At a meeting of the
cabinet this morning, all the ministers
being present, a decision was taken in
favor of a revision of the trial of ex-
Captain Dreyfus, and the documents
in the case will be sent to the court of
cassation. Crowds of people outside
the ministry of the interior, where the
cabinet council was held, loudly
cheered the ministers.
The cabinet ordered the minister of
justice, M. Sarrien, to lay before the
court of cassation the petition of
Madame Dre.vf us for a revision of Jher
husband'a case. The court therefore
will decide the legal question as to
whether the first trial of Dreyfus was
vitiated by the forgery committed by
the late Lieutenant-Colonel Henry.

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
[Reported by Downing, Hopkins & Co., Inc..
Board of Trade Brokers, 711 to 714 Chamber oi,
Commerce building, Portland, Oregon.]
On the advance of 3c to 5c in wheat,
at Chicago last week shoits covered ;
freely. They put the September to j
67%, and the December to 64 5-8. It
looked at the close Saturday as if the
demand from the shorts had been ap
preciably relieved. At the same
time that the speculators were taking
in their contracts at Chicago the sea
board shippers were covering theirs
freely. There was a letting up in the (
demand of both sorts during the clos
ing days of the week. Brokers with
export connections said the inquiry for
cargoes was not what it had been. The
commission people with relations in
all directions said the southwestern
and northwestern shorts bad materially
relieved their anxiety. So far as the
speculative position ia concerned it did
not look as bullish last Saturday as it
did a weok ago. The bear liquidation
on the advance had evened the pit up.
From being very bearish the local
crowd seemed to have become bullish;
a pretty good indication of what has
been going on.
Last week's receipts were in excess
of the week previous, although the
epr<ng wheat movement was curtailed
somewhat by showery weather. There
were heavy clearences, largely flour.
There was a very bewildering shipping
situation most of the week. Local
receipts were so small there was a
scramble from millers, elevator owners
and cargo people to get the desirable
grain. Yet the demand was not gen
eral. On the same days some of the
most active of brokers would call the
demand poor, while others would call
it sharp, indicating that the smallness
of the stocks and the lightness of the
arrivals did not require many orders to
make the demand look large to a man
who had an order for a cargo. There
were over 8,000,000 bushels at piimary
markets during the week, half at the
two Northwestern points. Duluth and
Minneapolis were strong in spite of
their heavy arrivals, but the biggest j
single buyer in those markets was a
Chicago elevator operator, Armour.

Philadelphia, Sept 27.—Rev. Crrus
L. Brady, archdeacon of the Protestant
Episcopal diocese of Eastern : Pennsyl
vania and chaplain of the First Penn
sylvania t volunteers, in a sermon to
night severely criticised i the manage
ment of ; the volunteer camps * which
came under bis obseivation • at Cbicka
mauga, his \ regimentf was sta
tioned for a long •: time. He said the
medical, commissary, ; quartermaster
and ordnance departments were all to
blame, and continued thus: v. j : v"
"I personally saw men left in the
hospital in camp for 36 hours without
any medical attendance whatever.
• "I saw men in those hospitals suffer
ing from fevei'witli the fain beating
down upon : them. _' j
"I saw men committed to the care of
unskilled attendants when it was abso
lutely impossible for them to receive
anything like the attention they de
served. V ■■'' ■-;,
: "1 saw men suffering fromjever, ly
ing with their mouths open and their
mouths filled j with flies." : -
In conclusion, the arohdeacon said:
"I wonder it I dare, being still in
the government service, say more.
There is much more that might be told
if it were proper to tell it, but perhaps
this will suffice. V -I had not intended
to touch upon this phase of our experi

the most advanced nation on the face

transporting the precious metals be
tween the mints. vlt baa been known
for some time that such a great ship
ment was in contemplation, and fthV
appearance of Assistant Secretary Van
derlip, of the treasury department, in
Chicago was for the purpose of making
■ the definite arrangements. Mr. Van
derlip was in consultation with West
ern road officials, and the shipment is
to be made on a special ; fast' train
guarded by federal soldiers and detec

freight, and not express, will be the
method of shipment.
The Philadelphia mint is being run
to its full capacity coining gold— both
foreign and domestic—-which has been
pouring in at a surprising rate, and the
intenttion is to transfer 10,000,000
ounces of silver to the ; Pacific; coast.
This amount \ means ovei 800 tone, or
15 ordinary, average carloads. The ex

anything like sohedule. rates would be
an item which even the United States
treasury could afford to figure on sav

Yacht Captain Murdered.
Sausalito, Cal., Sept 27. —Captain
Brooks, of the yacht Chispa, which
was anchored in the stream opposite
this town, was murdered at 1:45
o'clock this morning by two bay pi
rates. They boarded the little vessel,
evidently believing it to be without a
watchman. They plundered the lock
ers and were about ready to pull ashore
in a small boat when Captain Brooks
and a companion, who had been asleep
in the cabin, were aroused and made
their appearance on deck. A desperate
fight ensued, during which Captain
Biooks was killed, and the other man,
whose name has not been learned, was
wounded. The murderers then made
their escape, pulling toward the shore
in the darkness.

THE EXCELLENCE OF SYRUP OF FIGS
is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, but also
to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the California Fig Syrup
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured
by the California Fig Stbup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other par
ties. The high standing of the Cali
fornia Fig Stkup Co. with the medi
cal profession, and the satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. It is
far in advance of all other laxatives,
as it acts on the kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating or weaken
ing them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial
effects, please remember the name of
