Will to Kp tip the 1'rlee of All Material. . Be 8an Franolsoo, Sept. 9 The Cliron' icle any a that one of the irreatest lum ber combines cvt r kuown has just been formed. It include Dearly all the big mill-owners in Oregon and Washing. ton. Tuesday , the Central Lumber Company filed articloa of incorporation with the county clerk, naming the capital stock of the concern as 1 0,000, of which amount $1,900 only had been subscribed. The directors of the incor poration are: Clarence A. Thayer, Chan. C. Ste venson, jr., .Newton H. Hickman, t'hag. L. Cron, John M. Rhodes, James Webster and John Masterson. The movement to establish a pine lumber trust has been on foot the past two years, but it has been delayed by the fact that some mill-owners have held back. It was not because manu facturers did not realize the importance of the step, but it was hard to induce any one to take the initiative. The Victoria and Vancouver mills have been shipping into San Francisco and other pans of the state, according to lumbermen, for less than the cost of manufacture on the American side. That this statement is not exaggerated is evidenced by the fact that some of the officers doing business in this oity have been compelled to close down their mills and purchase from foreign owners. If the new combine is a success it will be far-reaching in its operations. Not only is it intended to fight the mills -of British Columbia on the coast, bnt the trust will roach out for foreign trade, of which at present the Ameri can manufacturers have a small sh ire. It is argued that there is big field for this trade, which only requires capital and energy to develop into a source of immense profit The board of directors, with which the Central Lumber Company has in corporated, is not a representative one, and it is not probable that they will oconpy office very long. The combine has already absorbed snob well-known firms as: The Pine Lumber Company, Pope & Talbot, Golden date Lumber Com pany, Wilson Bros., Bardine Mill Company, W. J. Adams, Gray's Har bor Commercial Company, Preston & MoKinnon, E. K. Wojd Lumber Com' pany, S. E. Slade Company, Benton, Holmes & Company, Simpson Lumber Company, California Lumber Com pany, and a number of others. If the plans of the combine have been fully formulated, the managers are not ready to make them public. E. J. Holt, of the Simpson Lumber Com pany, and D. H. Bibb, of the Oolden Gate Company, have had the matter in hand, and both have been working with untiring zeal. Their aim is to get every mill-owner of any protni nence on the coast into the combine, and until that is accomplished it is said that nothing further will be done. Be this as it may, the fact remains that within the Last few days there has been an advance in prices, and it is predicted another rise may be expected within a short time, as per agreement of owners. D. H. Bibb, who was seen this even' ing, said that to pablish anything oon nerning the workings of the combina tion would be premature. He admitted that the lumber market had been in depressed condition for the past three years, and that it was time the mill owners took steps for their own proteo tion. He refused to talk about the fu ture of the concern, saying that to do so would injure its plans. It is asserted that for the past three years the lumber fraternity of the Pa cifio coast has been losing annually i round 11,000,000. The milling en paoity during that time is said to have been between 1,000,000,000 and 1,200, 000,000 feet of lumber yearly, while the demand, including off -coast car goes, has never exceeded 400,000,000 feet a year. To make the situation more distressing, the Viotoria and Van couver mills have acapaoity of between 200,000,000 and 800,000,000 feet a year, and they come in direct compe tition with American mills, cutting under them in price. In Southern California there has been a building boom of late, but, ac cording to Mr. Bibb, the bulk of ma terial snipped to Southern ports has come form British Columbia. Une ol the most important moves whioh the trust will make will be to keep up the price of material. How they can do this in the face of snoh strong competition from British Co lumbia mills is one of the secrets of the combine. Eieta's Chance. Are Slim. New York, Sept. 9. A special to the World from Guatemala says President Barrios, being interviewed regarding the circular letter sent by Antonio Ezeta from San Francisco, to various presidents of Central American repub lics, advising them that he soon will take an aotive part in Salvadorean affairs, said: "I do not believe Ezeta will be able to accomplish anything, as he is hated in Salvador. Guatemala will follow her policy, which is not to interfere with her sister republic's affairs, but will take energetio measures to avoid invasion of Guatemala's frontiers. I believe Ezeta will be unable to head revolution." ABOUT THE CROPS. California'. Frobabl. Vintage of Sweet Wine. This Year. San Francisco, Sept. 9. Deputy In ternal Revenue Collector Loupe has re turned from bis trip to Fresno, where he was engaged in surveying the brandy stills and estimating the prob able vintage of sweot wines for the coming year. In many respects the trip was a dis appointment. It was thought that the output this year would be much larger than 1894. The preliminary reports and announcements were of a very promising nature, and from the figures submitted it was estimated that the crop would exceed that of last year by at least one-third. When Mr. Loupe went to Fresno he was surprised to learn that the grape crop had been con' siaerably damaged by a warm wave which struck that section of the coun try in Angust Its effects were pro nounced at Minturn, a small town, where in several instances, . half the grape crop was destroyed by the sud den heat, which bereft the fruit of its sap. . "I surveyed 800 stills," said Loupe, and inspected twenty-two sweet wineries. At present 100 tons of grapes are being daily pressed at Fresno by the Wine Growers' Association, and something like ninety tons a day by the Bartons. With the exception ot damage done by the warm wave everything looks promising in that sec tion of the country. Owing to the re d notion of the sweet wine output there will not be as large a quantity of brandy distilled as was anticipate.!. A large amount of grapes formerly used for making raisins is being used for wine this year. There is plenty of work for white men in the vineyards. but they do not seem to want it, and the growers are forced to employ Chi nese." ' THE ARMY AND NAVY. Kztenelve Transfer of Troop. In I Wert Ordered. Washington, Sent 9. Extensive transfers of troops in the West were directed in an order issued today by the secretary of war. The present gar rison at Fort Butord, N. D., will go to Fort Assinaboiue, Mont , and of the troops at the latter station, two com' panies of the Twenty-second infantry will go to Fort Harrison, Mont, and one company of the Twenty-second to Fort Yates, N.

It has been authoritatively announced that the United States government has decided to enter forthwith upon an independent investigation of the Ka Cheng riots. As first arranged, the inquiry was to have been made in co-operation with England. ; " . The change is occasioned partly by the fact that the British consul at Chung Khing, who is to conduct the investigation on behalf of his govern ment, has been detained at his post and will not be able to begin the in quiry for a month or more. - China is expected to lend her support to the American inquiry to the extent of supplying an escort She will prob' ably furnish an offloial to co-operate with the American investigator, as in the Cheng Tu investigation. The in vestigation is expected to be made by some of the officials now on the Chi nesa coast it win probably take a month to reaoh Ku Cheng, the capital of the interior province of Se Chuen some 1,500 miles from the nearest ocean port ; Suit Against the Gumry Estate. Denver, Sept 7. Suit was begun in the United States district court by Joseph Munat, who was seriously in jured in the Gumry hotel boiler explo sion, against the International Trust Company, administrator of the estate of Peter Gumry, for f 15,000 damages and $1,000 for doctors' bills and other expenses. The complaint alleges that the boiler was unsafe, and the engineer incompetent- ' -. Foreign Competition Too Great. . Warren, O., Sept 7. Charles Bray, manager of the Beaver tiuplate mills at Lisbon, 0., said today it would be impossilbe much longer for the tin- plate-makers in this country to com pete with foreign manufacturers. The recent rise in the price of steel billets, he said, would increase the oost of plates to a point where competition would be impossible, and It wonld be neocegary to olof the mill. AN ANARCHIST'S WORK He Intended to Blow Up the Rothschild Bank. TRIED TO EXPLODE A BOMB Seeing Ha Wa. Observed, He Threw Away th. Bomb Before He Could Ignite It. Paris, Sept. 7. M. Rothschild's banking bouse was the scene today of another anarchistic attempt. At 8:20 o'clock, a man entered the bank from the Rue La Fitte vestibule. A detec tive on guard saw the stranger trying to light the fuse of a bomb with a cig arette. The ashes on the cigarette pre vented the ready ignition of the fuse, and the man, seeing he was observed, threw the bomb upon the carpeted floor. The weapon did not explode. The man was arrested. At the police office he boldly avowed himself an an archist Aocording to another account, when the man was arrested, he was ascend ing the first staircase leading to the banking office, and had lighted a match. When be saw he had been de tected, he threw the bomb to the ground and ran out into the street, pursued by the bank detective. He made a des perate attempt to use a razor before he was overpowered by the detective and a policeman who had oome to his as sistance. Police officers believe, from the ap pearance of the culprit, that he is a brother of Pawels, who perpetrated the Madeline outrage. He is about 83 years of age, wears a short mustache, has a sullen stare end is very pale. Ha has a way of frequently clenching his fists. When taken to the prefecture, he refused to give his name or occupa tion. He was dressed in dark clothes. and wore a shirt with red stripes. The bomb was made of a half-pound cocoa tin, tied with a string and wound about with wire. ; A round hole, a quarter of an inch in size, was in the side of the box, and from this fell a whitish powder. At the police office the man was ex amined by Inspector Camette, acting in the absence of Commissioner G uerin. He obstinately refused to talk, and was taken to the central prison. There he became more commnnicative, and openly professed anarchistic theories, declaring he intended the bomb as an anarchistic demonstration. The recent explosive letter received at the bank, whioh cost Alphonse de Rothschild's confidential clerk an eye, the man said, was only a prelude to today's attempt, and ho expected it to have a salutary effect -The man told Commissioner Guerin he made the bomb himself. He expressed regret that he had not taken enough precau tions to ensure the explosion. He had tried to light the fuse, with a cigarette, but the ashes upon the latter inter fered. The arrival of the detective had compelled him to throw the bomb hastily, and by that act he bad not ex ported to explode it He said the bomb oontained chloride of potassium. He added: "However, you are welcome to open it and satisfy yourself on that point" He spoke clearly and in a decided tone. . He will be examined in detail tomorrow. : The man was arrested by a policeman named Roger. The bomb has been taken to the laboratory to be examined.' '. The culprit was miserably dressed, and a razor and brush were found upon him, so it is supposed he is a . barber's assistant He refused to give any pre text for the attempted outrage. His -family lived a long timeat Montmarte, where aotive inquiries are proceeding. Upon being further examined, he said the bomb was composed of chlor ide of potassium and blasting powder, and oontained no projectile. . His act, he said, was a protest against the pro. ceedings of the bankers. - He had trav- eled throughout France, never remain ing long in the same place, in order not to awaken suspioion. He professes a contempt for work, since everyone lives at the expense of society. The news of the outrage spread rap idly in Paris, and many fear that it portends a renewal of an aotive anar chistic campaign. A Minister Charged With Murder. Danville, Ind., Sept 7. Rev. Will iam Hinshaw was arraigued in the court yesterday charged with the mur der of his wife at Belleville on the night of Jannary 12. As the defend ant acoompanied by his family was brought into court great excitement prevailed and mutteringa of "There goes a coward" and kindred expres sions of hatred were heard. . The de fendant's counsel filed a motion to quash the indictment whioh was over ruled by Judge Hadley. He then en tered a plea of not guilty. The day was consumed in the attempt to secure a jury. The Hinshaw homicide was the most sensational in the oriminal history of the state. The accused was pastor of the leading M. E. church at Belleville and oonneoted with the wealthiest family in the city and is accused of murdering his wife because of an at tachent for Allie Ferre, the wealthiest and prettiest girl in the vicinity. His accuser is Detective Webster, of In dianapolis, who worked for the $4,000 reward offered for the detection of the murderer. Increased Immigration. London, Sept 8. The Chronicle comments on the increase of immigra tion to America as pointing to another trade boom there. It is certain if there is an industrial revival there, there wilt be no mors tariff tinkerinz.
