Inoxpoetcd success was achieved
by the expedition, as far as general
mirposea wont. Tho Shushltna river
has leon demonstrated to Iks navigable
for over 150 miles from tho mouth. Two
of its branches were ascended and found
to be navigablo for ordinary river boats
of light draught.
In a general way tho exploration of
the interior country is progressing fa
vorably, four parties being now on their

.S'kattm:, Sept. 2. W. 11. Dean, a
veil-known resident this city, who has
just returned from Caiw Nome, claims
that that district will becoino the rich
est mining camp on earth. He said :
"Capo Nome beach has been pros
lected and demonstrated to contain pay
dirt for a distance of 115 miles. There
are 000 men engaged at beach mining,
and it is a conservative estimate to say
they are washing out an average of 1 25
per day to the man.
Principal portion of tho work is being
done between the mouth of tho Snake
and I'enny rivers, a stretch of leanh ten
mdes in extent. Tho number of bench
diggers is increasing every day. Ijtlior
ers aro scarce from tho fact that men
tint! that they can do better by mining
on the beach.

CAUSES OF FRICTION.
England Demands That All Transvaal
Disputes Be Settled.
London, Sept. 2. Last evening, the
secretary of state for tho colonies, Jo
seph Chamberlain, Issued the text of tho
Transvaal dispatches of August. 10 and
21, and the reply of tho imperial gov
I eminent ot August - mo puoucauon
is accompanies oy a noio cnipimsiiuiK
tho advisabllltv of mnkiiitr tho correct
ersion known, owing to thejfact that nit
incorrect version has been published in
Tho Transvaal dispatch of Augiut 10
contains tho proposals regarding tho
franchise, which go on tho assumption
that Great llrltain will agree that tho
present intervention docs not constltuto
a precedent andwillallow tho suzerainty
question to drop. Tho dispatch of Aug.
21 makes tho concessions oxpressly con
ditional upon Grcal llritain undertaking
not to interfere in tho future affairs of
the Transvaal, not to insist on a further
assertion of tho oxistanco of sur.erainty,
and to agree to arbitration.
The reply of tho imiorial government,
dated August 28, declares that Great
ISritain considers that tho proposals put
forwnrd as alternatluo to those of July
31 assume the adoption of principle of a
fraehiso which will not bo hampered by
conditions imparing its uscfullncss and
which will secure immediate representa
tion. With respect to intervention, tho
imiwrlal note says that tho government
cannot debar itself from its right under
tho convention, or divest Itself of the
obligations of a olvlllml power to pro
tect its subjects abroad from injustice.
The nolo concludes by reminding the
Transvaal that other matters exist
which tho grant of a political fran
chise will not settle, and which aro
not the nronnor subjects for arbitration.
Those, the note declares, it will bo nee
cessary to settle concurrently wim tno
questions already undor discussoin,
and they will form, with tho question
of arbitration, proer subjects tor tho
proposed Capo I own conference.
The l'rctorsa version of tho imperial
reply was that Mr. Chamborlln was
unublo to consider tho Transvaal's pro
osals as an alternative to n joint com
mission of inquiry.

Tho situation in tho matter of who
shall bo suporlutondMitof tho asylum
for the Insane is becoming somewhat
warm and complicated, until within
tho past few days the plum was
supposed to Ilo boon Dr. J. N. Hinltli, of
this city, and Dr. J. F. Calbreath, of
Yamhill, but now it is announced that
Dr. Wright, of Klamath, the homo of
State Treasurer Moore, Is an active can
didate and that us a result no choice
will be reached and the matter will
stand In statu iw. Until yesterday Dr.
Smith's friends were over confident of
his success, but now there Is a less de
gree of certainty in their tone of voice.
Dr. Calbreath returned to the city to
day, and exhibits a more ovldiant hope
fulness than when he left the scone of
action a few days ago. Dr. Wright is
highly sM)ken of by his friends, as aro
the other two candidates, hut it now
looks as though those three might have
to stand buck owing to disagreement of
tho board and lot the present incumbent,
thuoiily aspirant who is condemned by
any one, prollt by tho situation ami
the public say there are few situations
tlons that ho cannot prollt by.
In connection with tho asylum man
agement there am several other posi
tions to bo tilled. Among these book
keeper, steward and commissary. Tho
only candidates so far roortcd are John
U. Wright, of Salem, for steward, 11, D.
Allen, of Sllvertou, for book-kcoH!r, J.
N. llyau, of Douglas coiinty,for steward.
In the meantime tho present man
