New York, June 6. A special to the
Herald from Washington says : Presi
dent Schurman, of the Philippine com
mission, in a dispatch to Secretary Hay,
has, it is believed, recommended more
liberal concessions to the Filipinos, with
a view of ending the insurrection at
once. An official acquainted with the
message said it reviewed the situation in
the islands and was- of an encouraging
The dispatch was considered by the
president and Secretary Hay and the
president has sent a reply. The nature
of the answer is not divulged. It is sig
nificant however, that coincident with
his message to Mr. Schurman, a cable
gram was eent to General Otis with in
structions in line with the president's
belief that the restoration of peace can
only be reached br the complete subju
gation of the Filipinos. General Otis
will continue his military : operations
throughout the rainy season.
It is apparent the president does not
look for the close of the rebellion until
the Filipinos are convinced of the sup
eriority of the United States. The con
cessions already offered are liberal, the
administration believes, and as 'far as
the president can go without authority
from congress, but it is doubtful if the
new propositions made by the com
mission will receive their approval.
The war department is preparing plans
to send 6000 men needed by General
Otis to make up the 30,000 v hich he says
be must have to' control the situation.
Regiments will probably b withdrawn
from Cuba and Porto Rica, sufficient
with other regulars to be taken from the
United States to make oj the number
General Otis advises tae war depart
ment that the Oregou regiment will
leave for the United Svates this week.
It will be sent direct to Portland, Or.,
for muster-out at Vancouver barracks.

The Oregon boys who suffered in the
recent engagements, according to Gen
eral Otis' report, are as follows :

Body , of "Barefoot" Stolen.
San Fbancisco, June 6. The report
comes from Honolnla that when the
tomb of Lunalilo, the "barefoot king of
Hawaii," was recently opened it was
found that the remains bad been re
moved and that the metal caBket con
tained only portions of the grave.c-.lotbes.
It is surmised that the body may have
been taken by natives to a heathen grave
in the mountains, as a thunderstorm on
the day of the burial had much affected
his superstitions subjects.
Lunalilo was elected king in 1873, but
thirteen months afterwards died of con
sumption. Although he possessed a
large fortune he insisted on going about
the streets barefooted at all times. By

Would' Not Suffer So Again for Fifty
Times Its Pi Ice.
I awoke last night with severe pains
in my stomach. I never'felt so badly in
all my life.' When I came down to work
this morning I felt so weak I conld hardly
work. I went to Miller & McCurdy's
drug store and they recommended
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy. It worked like magic
and one dose fixed me all right. It
certainly is the finest thing I ever used
for stomach trouble. I shall not be
without it in my home hereafter, for
I should not care to endure the sufferings
of last night again for fifty times its
price. G. H. Wilson, Liveryman, Bur

Unless the Trouble They are Having
Prevents the Raise.
Chicago, June 5. Farmers and retail
dealers in agricultural implements will
have to pay more for their plows, har
rows, seeders and implements of a kin
dred nature in the future. At a meet
ing of twenty-five manufacturers of
these implements of farm industry held
today, it was decided to make a general
rise in the price of all agricultural im
plements. A. general rise in prices was
advocated, by. those present, and com
mittees were appointed to prepare a
schedule for the various kinds of imple
ments. These committees will attempt
to make out their price list during the
summer months, and will report to a
meeting to be called this fall. It is
thought a general increase of from 15 to
25 per cent will be made.
Chicago, June 6. The Record says :
Word has reached Chicago that nego
tiations for the proposed $50,030,000
plow trnet have all been abandoned. At
a meeting of manufacturers to be held
here tomorrow i is. said that the big
deal will be officially declared off. Pro
moters' hopes have not materialized
within the expected period. .
On heels of the report that the plow
combination is trembling in the balance
comes the information that the pro
jected $75,000,000 amalgamation of
threshing machine manufacturers is hav
ing its trouble. Promoters have not ob
tained sufficient funds to pay cash for
plants, and propositions to give half
cash and half stock have not met with

worse and I could hardly get around to
work. I went to a drng store and the
