indications we should judge that
Major Strait, our present member,
will be the nominee of the conven

man. The fact of his having served
three terms should be a recommen

do more for the district than anew

BERLIN, July 6 The fourteenth sitting of the
congress was prolonged till 6:30. TheBatonm ques
tion, which had been previously Idiscusspd by the
commission over which Prince Hohenlohepresides,
was the subject of deliberation, but no conclusion
was reached. The congress has agreed in principle
to three points, namely: To maintain the Darda.
nelles closed, as at present, to ships ofwar to cede
Batoum to Russia, andto makeit a free port. There
remains the question of dismantling the fortifica
tions and forbidding Bnssians to fortify the coast.
The anxiety tofinishandthe desireto maintain the
present agreement, however, is so strong that no
doub felt some will be found by

and a body of fourteen men were out last Sunday
on a scouting expedition up the south fork of the

mouth, at Murderer's creek, they came upon Indi

cut the line ofretreat of Clark's party, and nearly
succeeded In the attempt. The whites defended
themselves, but one man was killed and twoothers
seriously wounded before the command made its
escape. Clark and two of his companions were
cut off by thedeath oftheir horses. As soon as the
news reached Canyon Citythat Clark was missing,
a party of twelve men went to his assistance, com
ing acrossClark at Cunnings' ranche, about two
miles fromthefork of the John Day river, to which
point Clark had succeeded in making his escape.
While at this place the Indians made an attack on
them and drove them from the ranche, wounding
Schulx. The hostltes tookthe stage and stock nd
burned the vehicle and all the buildings oil the
ranche. Dependence of Foreign Countries on
