At a recent, session of the Farmers National congress, the resolution com mittee adopted resolutions favoring government ownership ^ of railroads and a postal telegraph system. Unre stricted agricultural reciprocity with Canada was voted down by the com mittee. A resolution favoring the ad mission of Oklahoma as a state was indorsed. ... The big event recently at the Em pire City track was the effort of the champion gelding, Major Delmar, to beat his own record of 2:00 1-4, and to beat the world's record of 2:00, held by Lou Dillon. He trotted most wonderful mile, and in a game but tired finish, shot under the wire in the record time. A high speed trial over the Sossen experimental electrical railroad at Berlin resulted in attaining a speed of over 117 miles per hour. Every part of the 100-ton car was intact and the roadbed was not affected.

I LORD MILNER SLOW IN MAKING UP HIS MIND. Newspapers Report a Dearth of First Class Statesmen in Conservative' Ranks—Balfour Is Supporting Brod . ........I erick to Remain in War Office MU' j ner Don't Want to Be Party Leader. ! London, Oot. 1.—Premier Balfour and Lord Milner had a three hours' conversation. During the course of the afternoon the premier also saw ' Mr.Ritchie, who resigned the office of, chancellor of the exchequer; Lordl Esher, Lord Cromer, the British agent in Egypt; Ian McOllom M. P., and oth er politicians. Nothing has yet been divulged re garding the personnel of the new cabinet. Five thousand tickets, representing the full capacity of the hall, have been mailed for Mr. Chamberlain's meeting at Glasgow, October 6. The wide spread interest in the event is demon strated by the iact that applications for upwards of 50,000 tickets were received. It was authoritatively stated that an official announcement of the com position of the reconstructed minis try need not be expected before the beginning of next week. A prolongation of the ministerial crisis seems likely, judging from news paper comment, to still further dis credit the government. It had been taken for granted that Premier Bal four would complete the reconstruc tion of the cabinet before going to Sheffield to deliver his long expected speech explaining his fiscal policy, which is due on October 1. It is now seen that that is impossioie, and the apparent waiting for Lord Milner's decision is commented on in conser vative as well as liberal papers emphasizing the dearth of first class statesmen in the conservative ranks. A large section of the unionist party is restive under the report that Mr. Balfour is supporting Mr. Broderick in the latter's determination to remain in the war office. Lord Milner's reluctance to accept office is attributed among other rea sons to hesitancy to commit mmself as a party man. It is said that he de sires to hold himself aloof from party politics. Another point made by the liberal papers is the absence of a re sponsible chancellor of the exchequer at the moment that the country is ex periencing a serious financial crisis, needing the presence of a strong finance minister. The alarming de cline in consols and other gilt edged stocks is attributed largely to the enormous accumulation of the national debt as the outcome of the South African war and the settlement in South Africa. Three Men Killed in a Mill. Redding, Cal., Sept. 29.—Thre° men employed in the big sawmill at Mc Cloud met a horrrible death. John Morrillo and C. Merrino, Italians were pitching logs or placing them in posi tion. One of the men slipped and two heavy logs rolled down, crushing ooth men to death. A few moments later Antonio Lusso, working in the mill, met instant death. While at work oq ah edger the machine struck a knot in a board and the piece of timber was hurled back with such force that it nearly went through Lus so's body. - Duke of Richmond Is Dead. London, Sept. 28.—The duke of Rich mond, Lennox and Gordon is dead at Gordon castle, Banffshire, as the re sult of a chill. The duke had been giv ing a large bouse party and the castle was full of guests when the gravity of his seizure was announced. The deceased was the sixth duke of Richmond.

Only about half this amount is sold. Harvest is over and the great bulk of grain has reached the warehouses along the lines of railroad. Farmers are waiting for advance prices before selling. t The attorney general has rendered an opinion to the effect that there is no law permitting the admission of non-residents of the state to the state insane asylums by the payment for thein care and treatment. Joe Davis, the street car robber who held up a street car in Tacoma on the night of the Fourth of July, and upon whom a watch was found that was taken from a man in a street car hold up at Portland, has been sentence- -/ Judge Snell to 14 years in the peni tentiary. Not in many years has there been so large an acreage of excellent sum mer fallow In Walla Walla county ready for the seeder and harrow as at present. On every hillside can be seen large tracts of land with scarce ly a weed in sight and the surface resembles a garden in spring time The ' one time sensational case dl Lewis Levy, a representative from King county, against the Metropoli tan Press (incorporated), the State Printing company, the Pioneer Print ing & Binding company and others for $25,009 damages for alleged libel, has been dismissed by Judge Snell at the cost of the plaintiff, the latter be ing in default. The wood supply of the Blue moun tain district, and especially for the sections including Walla Walla, Pen aleton, La Grande and the country ly ing west of Pendleton, has been cor nered by Eugene Tausick. Although Mr. Tausick will give out no informa tion of his scheme, it is reported that he has purchased in the neighborhood of 25,009 cords. One of the most destructive fires in the history of Garfield took place re cently when the big implement and carriage house at the corner of Main and First streets, owned by Farns worth & Foster, and the Mechanics Hotel, a few feet distant on Main street, owned by John Drew and oc cupied by Charles Grant, burned to the ground with their contents. John Patton of Spokane was "rushed" by pickpockets and robbed of $460. The men crowded around Patton in a store and ware apparent ly examining some goods. Two of them were on one side of him and one on the other. They finally said uiey didn't want t,o buy, and left the store Mr. Patton walked out of the store and just as he went out of the door he felt for his money and founu it was gone. Clifford Pinchot, chief of the bureau of forestry of the agricultural depart ment, has notified Senator Foster from Ogden, Utah, that it will be lm p< tsible for him to spend more than couple of days in Washington in connection with his Investigation of the forest reserve question and ques tions appertaining to forest reserve extensions anj élimina* ions. He may be in Tacoma October 3 and 4. The hop growers of North Yakima valley are apparently in a position to dictate terms. Since the first of the week the price of the 1903 crop has jumped 4 cents. Twenty-seven cents was offered, but no sales have taken place. It is understood the growers will let go at 30 cents, and It is con fidently expected that this figure will be paid in a few days. The crop this year will be at least 12,500 bales which will bring $750,000 into the hands of the Yakima growers when they are disposed of. This week will practically put an end to harvesting. Wheat hauling is the order of the day, and ail the large warehouses are rapidly filling. The experiment of regrassing the ranges of central Washington is not proving the success anticipated by the state agricultural college of the state. The construction of a beet sugar fac tory at Prosser and consequent con struction of a belt line railroad by the Northern Pacific, 30 miles in length through the district and town of Sun nyside now seems assured.

An assault upon the office buildingpby Vm mob early in the after noon, baforcKthe arrival on the ground of troqÿbi was successful and a mass of fren||pd rioters secured possession of the .ground floor of the building, de stroyin#everything movable that came ih their^path. A crowd of the office staff, with drawn revolvers, prevented their gitihins access to the upper floors the building. Every window and door ln the building was smashed. The arrival of the troops on the ground qrmM with ball cartridges about 2j«'clock served to restore some semblarffce of order. The rioters then contented themselves with throwing stones àt the building and hurling in vectives ' at the soldiers, who estab lished a "dead line" and prevented any ajjprqach toward the building by any of the rioters. i The gvbabiht number of the mob are ignorant Italians, Finns, Norwegians and FYenchmen, the latter, perhaps, the hardest Of all to handle. All have been dj^hklng more or less, although the bark have obeyed the order to close. The mob is one that can not be 'reasoned with and the man they seem jpost anxious to get at is Mr. Coyne, 'the assistant manager, who in the ab sence of Mr. Shields is in charge of the works. Mr, Coyne has discreetly Kept out of sight all day. Late in the afternoon the leaders of the mob held a conference and de manded ^Jhdt 'the company house the men in their jüjstel and boarding nouse and feed them until the money for their wages is forthcoming. In order to appease the crowd this demand was granted, and ^he men have taken -pos- - session of the White House, a large boarding house operated by the com- i pany. A Proyfcdons are being sent there to feed them. As their leaders are making the most Inflammable sort of spefeenes, great fears are entertained for the outcome of a proposed meet ing. Attack . on Cars Feared. £ * ' nF i An attempt is being made to put the str^tcar system in operation in the Cailadian Soo, which suspended opera tions after an attack had been made on it.- Inasmuch as most of the rioters were not in the streets at the time this trial was made, no disorder occurred. It is estimated that there are 20,000 men in the Soo and these are rein forced by all the idle rabble in town. The IoobI'' police force is being strengthened by all the deputies who can be found, each man being given a badge and a revolver and ordered to use the latter whenever necessary. Much feeling has been aroused over the shooting of two Frenchmen by the police during the trouble this morning. The rioters declare that the officers used their revolvers when it was not necessary. Neither of the men are fatally hurt. The mob is planning an attack on police headquarters with the object of releasing the men who have been cap tured. The problem today's developments has created is beyond the solution of any of the company officials on the ground. Apparently their only hope is that the anger of the mob will spend itself and that the men will get out of town by degrees. A meeting of the employes of the company was held and its proceedings were said to be of the most heated character. The particular grievance which seems to have inflamed thé men to acts of disorder was the prom ise of pay today, when the men who made the promises, the employes be lieve, knew they c«nld not be fulfilled. Immediately after this meeting ad journed the men went in a body to the office of the eompany, determined to get their money «r get "satisfac tion," as they pot it * Naval Cadets Can Smoke. Washington, Sept. 39 . —On the rec ommendation of Captain Brownson, commandant of the naval academy, Secretary Moody has authorized -ae discontinuance of the rule prohibiting smoking as far as it applies to mem bers of the first class. In the opinion of the secretary the members are quite old enough to be relieved of such a restriction.
