Th« Home Ordered an Investigation of HI. Ca»e. Washington, Doc. 7.—After an in teresting debate of three hours, tho house today, by a vote of 302 to 80, adopted the resolution offered by Tay lor, of Ohio, Monday, for the appoint ment of a special committee to investi gate the charges against Brigliam 11. Kolwrts, the Mormon representative elect from Utah. Previously the house had rejected a substitute resolution offered by ltichardson, the leader of the minority, to allow Boberts to be sworn in and to send the whole case to the judiciary committee. The substi tute resolution, however, by no means commanded the full Democratic strength. Only 57 members voted for it. Of the 30 who then voted against the Taylor resolution, all were Demo crats except two—Loud and Newlands. By the terms of the resolution Rob erts is not only excluded from ull par ticipation in the proceedings of tho house until the committee reports and the house passes upon his case, but ho is denied a seat in the hall. Whether this will be interpreted to deuv him admission within the chamber pending the disposition of his case is yet to be decided. The reading of the president's mes sage was completely overshadowed by the dramatic proceedings which result ed in the action of the house today. The galleries were thronged with spec tators, mostly women, who sat pa tiently through the three weary hours that preceded the debate, and then waited on three hours more until it was concluded. The most remarkable feature of tho debate was the fact that Boberts' pres entation of his own side of the case, which lasted almost an hour, became so absorbing that he won the sympathy of many of those in the galleries, and was several times showered with ap plause. It was evident, that he realized that the house was overwhelmingly against him, and at times he spoke de fiantly and fiercely. During the debate Grosvenor of Ohio rose to repel indignantly an insinua tion of Boberts that the president had knowingly appointed men guilty of polygamy to federal olliccs in Utah. The Day In the Senate. Washington, Dec. 7. —Today's ses sion of the senate lasted two hours and 40 minutes, practically the entire time being consumed in the reading of the president's message. The reading was largely perfunctory, few senators ac cording it any attention. The anouncement of the death of Senator-elect M. L. llayward, of Ne braska, was received by the senate with sincere regret. Although he was not officially a member of the body, he was well-known to many of the sena tors and by them was held in high re gard. At the conclusion of the reading of the message, the senate adopted reso lutions of regret presented by Senator Thurston, of Nebraska, and as a mark of respect adjourned immediately. ATTACK UPON VIGAN. Filipino* Ammhulteri the fiurriMoii, Kill ing Kiglit AmtricMiK* Manila, Dec. 7. —Last night a force of insurgents, estimated at 800, at tacked the American garrison of 200 at Yigan, proivnee of South llocos. Tho American loss was eight killed and many wounded. After very hard fighting the Filipinos were driven off und through tho moun tains, leaving three dead. Colonel Bisbee is now reinforcing the garrison. Fears are entertained regarding vari ous small bodies of General Young's troops in the province of Abra. Manila, Dec. 7.—General Hughes now occupies Santa Barbara and Cabu tan, Island of I'anav, his lines extend ing 35 miles north of Ho 110. He has occupied 20 towns. The inhabitants are returning with white Hags. Their fear of the Americans is diminishing as they learn they will be well treated. It is impnssilbe to get the insurgents to flgbt. They are retreating to the mountains, and no more organized re sistance is expected. Hughes contin ues advancing north and spreading his lines. LINED UP ON THE TUGELA. Fifteen to Twenty Tliouaanil Hurra Waiting for llallei-. New YoTk, Dec. 7.—A dispatch to the Herald from London says: It is now certain that the lioers are in great force on the further side of the Tugela river. The lioer army, which invaded Natal, was put by good judges at 25,000 to 30,000 men. If we accept the latter figure, and deduct 2,000 from losses which may have been made good by disloyal Dutch recruits from Natal, and another 10,000 for the remaining force at Ladysmith, the total of the army confronting General Duller may be from 15,000 to 20,000 men. In the meantime, some news has come through from Ladysmith showing that while on the one hand the lioer's bombardment was becoming severe, on the other one of the naval guns had once more silenced the big lioer 40 or 100-pounder. General Gatacre has occupied and secured a large quantity of corn which would doubtless have been command eeicd had the lioers beeu allowed to uiake a longer stay. Trill it Struck mi Kleetrle Car. Chicago, Dec. fl.—A Wabash rail road passenger trniu struck a Thirty first street electric car at 7 o'clock to night, killing Charles Shaw, the motor vnan, and injuring 10 others, including Auna Lohr, left shrouldcr fractured; l-harles Kieman, left foot cut off and internal injuries, aiid Frank O'Conuor, left ankle broken and head bruised. Nebraska City, Dec. 7. — Senator flayvard, who has been ill for several weeks, died at 0:20 this morning. WOMAN IN OERTH. ll* Sued the WmmT Company and Ilo rrlvnl Damage*. New York, Dec. 11.—One of tho moat singular suits on record has just been decided in the city court in this city, Marcus Braun having secured a judgment against the Wagner Palace Car Company for $750, as damages for a mistake made by one of tie com pany's conductors, who alotted ft berth already sold to liranii to a woman. When the error was discovered every berth in the train was sold, and llrauii was compelled to sit in the smoking compartment during n trip from Cleve land to this city. When liraun bought his coupon for the Ix-rth he left his luggage in the seat and went to the smoking compartment. Jle did not return for two hours, ac cording to his own story, but when he did, he found the berth made up and occupied. Tho comments of the pas sengers so injured his feelings, he says, that a money compensation is due him, he alleges. The woman in the berth produced a congou which was an exact duplicate of tho coupon given liraun. ONE WEEK OF DEBATE. llonse ArrmiffPH fur Consideration of Currency Hill. Washington, Dec. 9.—Tho house adopted a special order l'or the consid eration of the currency bill, beginning Monday. The general debate will con tinue until Friday, and Saturday amendments may lie offered under tho five-minute rule, and the following Monday the vote will be taken. Tho Democrats, Populists and Silverites presented a solid front against the adoption of the resolution, and every Bepublican voted for it. Boberts, the Mormon representative elect from Utah, "was not in tho house when it convened today. They Nitty He Viee-iulmlrnl*# New York, Doc. 11.—A special to the Herald from Washington says: President McKinley, during an inter view with Senator Wellington, ex pressed himself in favor of reviving the grade of vice-admiral in the interest •of both Bear-Admiral Sampson and Bear-Admiral Schley, lie believes that this is the simplest solution of the whole Sampson-Schley controversy, and it is expected that Senator Well ington will introduce a bill in a few days providing for the appointment of two vice-admirals without specifying names. The president very frankly said that if such a bill became a law, he would promptly nominate both Sampson and Schley in the order named. This ar rangement, both the president and Sen ator Wellington believe, will meet the approval of a majority of the friends of both officers. llfillronri Conference* In New York. New York, Dec. 11.—Tho World says: Some important conferences be tween Union Pacific and Chicago & Northwestern railroad officials, have been held in this city within the past week and a report is again in circula tion to the effect that the former sys item will be absorbed by the latter, which the Vnnderbilts already control. This will be done under a long term lease, it is said. Both President ilughitt and President Burt, of the two lines, are now in the city. They de nied yesterday that their presence hero , had any such significance as was indi- I cated by the report. 11l lii Favor of Taylor. Frankfort, Ky., Dec. 11.—The state board of elections tonight gave out its official findings that W. S. Taylor, for governor, and the rest of the Republi can ticket, have been elected on the face of the returns. Commissioners Ellis and Pryor signed the majority re port, in which they held that, as a board of canvassers, they have no right to go behind the returns of the county boards, that their duties are purely ministerial as canvassers, and that the face of the returns, as received by them from the counties, shows the election of the Republican state ticket. Ac cordingly, the report says, certificates of election were ordered issued to each candidate thereon. Lake Steamer Mlnkliik. Fort Colborne, Ont., Dec. 11.—It is believed here tonight that the Cana ! dian steamer Niagara has foundered on | Lake Krie and that all hands were lost. | The cew comprised 10 persons, all told. ■Of these, Captain Henry McGlory, I master of the lost learner, is the only one known here. The Niagara had a cargo of lumber and shingles, bound from Georgian bay to lluffalo. Tuesday the Niagara was sighted off Long l'oint in the heavy gale and snow storm. The steamers Orion and M. T. Greene ar rived this afternoon from Buffalo, and report passing through a quantity of wreckage. It consisted of lumber, shingles and pieces of a wooden steamer. The Niagara is the only boat known to be missing. C»|>« Nome Will Klval Monte Carlo. Seattle, Dec. 11.—Arangements have been completed for a big gambling and theatrical enterprise, to be established at Cape Nome in the spring. The I plans involve an expenditure of $(!(),- 000. A special steamer will take North 40 variety performrs, the para phernalia for the biggest gambling house in Alaska and a building 50x140 feet, three stories high. Argentina'* Cropn. Huenos Ayres, Dec. 11.—The wheat prospects in the Argentine liepuldio 1 are excellent. There will probably be ' an exportable surplus of 2,000,000 tons, i The linseed crop will reach 350,000, ' and the total wool clip is about 225,000 | tons, which guarantees an exportable surplus. To prevent obstruction to traffic in the main streets of Boston in the day time, all the reuairs are made at night. ALONG THE COAST. Itnni of General Internal Oleitned Frmii the Thriving I'nclfln 8 title*. Conditions in all lines of industry in the Pacific Northwest this fall are in exceptionally tine shape and indica tions are that next year will see an ac tivity not hitherto found here. Kven now we have indications from different sources that there are preparations be ing made for doing a large amount of deferred work along agricultural lines, railroad building, harbor improve ment, mining, etc., besides much work that must be done to keep pace with growing demands in these sections, and as a result of all this it is safe to pre dict that there call bo no idle men through the winter, nor during next summer. In some sections the demand for workmen is so great that those needing them have dilHculty in secur ing them, notwithstanding that the wages offered are higher than ordinary. Nearly all men who are able and will ing to work can secure employment, and there is no excuse for idle mei from now on. Those who may ha\ been affected by the closing down tu nearly all the shingle mills recently can secure temporary work elsewhere during the time their mills are closed, if they so desire, and men coming from the East looking for work should have no difficulty in securing plenty of work at good wages. Of course, it is not ex pected that there will be so great a de mand for skilled labor as for the ordi nary, on account of the skilled artisans and regular employes of the factory and on the farm holding their positions right along, l>ut that class of workmen who generally do not secure work for all the year and are anxious to keep busy during the winter months may lind work in abundance at good wages. —Northwest Industries. Lieutenant tlainea Mimro. Lientenant James N. Munro Fourth United States cavalry, who made the successful bluff, while in command of 50 men of his troop, which resulted in the capture of Payombong, with 800 armed insurgents, under General Co non, is well-known in Walla Walla, where he was stationed in 185)7. When the war with .Spain began he was left in command of the fort at that place, being the only officer at the garrison for several months. He chafed under his enforced absence from the field of battle, and repeatedly said that if given a chance he would do something to make his name known. One of his ex pressions was, "If I get a chance I'll show them a trick with a hole in it." lie was delighted when the order came last spring for him to take his troop to the Philippines. That he carried out his promise "to show them a trick with a hole in it" is made very evi dent by his capture of 16 armed insur gents for every man in his command. Lieutenant Munro is a graduate of West Point, is a small man of athletic build, of brusque manner, and appears when on horseback a typical cavalry man. Rkllk For Alnika. Heavy shipments of railroad iron have been recently niaile to Seattle for the Alaska road, and within the past few weeks contracts have been made by the White Pass & Yukon for the early delivery of 4,000 tons of rails, which will be shipped from Seattle to Skagway and Lake liennett. This is in addition to 7,500 tons already pur chased and which are now going for ward. These rails will be used in the extension of the White Pass line from Lake liennett to Closeleigh, a point on Fifty-mile river, four miles below the White Horse rapids. For a Belter Service. The Northern Pacific will undoubt edly institute a double train service between St. Paul and the coast next April. The announcement has been made before that the road would at tempt a double train service, but now the rumors have given way to an au thoritative statement to that effect. Owing to the heavy traffic it is believed by Northern Pacific officials that a double train service is the only solu tion to the present difficulties in main taining anything like schedule time. Norlhwent Note*. The seventh annual mei-ting of tho Washington State Dairymen's Associa tion will be held at North Yakima on December 28-30. Professor C. F. Curtis, of the lowa agricultural college, will deliver addresses each day, and other prominent dairy enthusiasts will also take part. The Areata delivered at Marshfield, last week, 1,000,000 salmon eggs on ice for the Hogue river hatchery. These eggs traveled nearly 1,000 miles before they leached the hatchery, although the place where they were taken was only 40 miles from the mouth of the Hogue river. They went by way of San Francisco, the wagon road being too rough to transport them. Most of the employes of the suspend ed Washington shingle mills are now at work repairing the buildings and machinery of the mills. It was feared that the general closing down of the shingle mills in this state would throw many laborers out of work, but it has in fact brought little hardship upon them. J. W. Kunzelman, L. E. Torinns and David Carmichael, of Stillwater, Minn., are reported as having acquired extensive tracts of timber laud in Skagit county. W. 8. Jamison, of Port Ciamble, is said to have sold 1,200 acres of timber land for $20,000, sup posedly to the Stillwater syndicate, says the Lumber Trade Journal. Pendleton's expenditure* for 1800 will be more than $4,000 less than for 1808, even including the cost of 1,500 cords of wood purchased this year that will be carried over. GOVERNOR REPORT. Devote* m Considerable Portion to Mines of Ala*ki». Governor flrady, of Alaska, in his annual report, pleads for statehood, government establishment and the op eration of calile and telegraph lines and the persistent branding of female seals and tlie cessation of killing them for at least 10 years. An appropriation of $110,000 is asked for a penitentiary and suitable public buildings at Sitka. The governor says that to preserve the seals the United States should own a property right in the seals and brand the letters "U. 8." four inches long on every female seals—thus spoiling thein for fur seals. The governor's report is an important document, making a pamphlet of 57 pages. It is a complete report upon the industries and prospects of the im mense northern empire. Naturally he devotes a considerable portion of his re port to the mining situation, lie de votes particular attention to gold quart mining, of which he says: (Juartx Mining In Aln«ka. "The year's progress in this industrj has been most gratifying. The man agers of the Treadwell plant felt thai life is too short for the treatment ol that immense mass of ore with a 240- stamp mill, which had been doing dutj so long and well. Accordingly thej have constructed other mills and need' ful accessories thereto, and now have it operation a total of 880 stamps. "Hack of Juneau, in Silver How basin, quarWwining is going on vigor ously. The 3<gtamps of the Juneau- Alaska mill haw%eeu steadily at work during the season. "Ketchikan, on Tongas narrows, it now the center of a district in the ex treme southeastern portion of Alaska, wherein is a keen interest in quatn mining. The sea level claims are now ready for operation and a milling planl will soon be erected. "The Appollo Consolidated on Unga island, one of the Shumagin group, haß been kept steadily at work throughout the year and has I icon a pretty steady producer, with a 40-stamp mill, at the rate of about $80,000 per month. "All the district north of Juneau, along the mainland, is rich in quart 2 ledges and in the neighborhood of Ber ner's bay there are several mills at work. Tlii' Fisheries. The governor refers to the fisheries at length ami after describing the exten sive salmon canneries says: "The cod will always beourstandby. "We probably have the grandest banks in the world. It is a safe calcu lation that we have not less than 125,-, 000 square miles of cod fishing in con nection within the Alaska coast. Mere is an immense wealth simply waiting for development." Index ami Adjacent Camps. The Summit mine, seven miles from Index, has just completed a seven-mile horse tram and 1,400-foot wire tram, and are now making regular shipments. They have about 150 feet for stoping ground above the present tunnel. Stope shows about 10 feet of ore. They are also sinking a winze on ore body, in which they are getting some high grade liornite ore. The Golden Tunnel Company, whose property is near Par ing, are just completing their mill, which is a centrifugal machine called the .Montgomery pulverizer. It is sup posed to handle 80 tons of ore per day. In addition to this they are putting in Hungarian riffles and Wilfley concen trator. The Vulcan Iron Works of Seattle have the contract and are put ting in a 1,700-foot wire tramway from the mine to the mill. The Golden Tunnel property is something entirely different from anything else in the country. It has never had any devel opment work done on it to speak of and still they have several thousand tons of ore in sight, most of which lies loose in a large cave, the main chamber of which is 75 feet high and 25 feet wide, extending something like 75 feet into the mounatin. The ore looks like a pile of white sand or cement finely pul verized. It is said this ore has more metals in it than anything in the coun try, containing gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc, iron, aluminum, tellurium mid a number of others. At Skyko niish the Cleopatra people are putting in a wire tramway and are preparing to ship some of their high-grade ore. In their lower tunnel, at a depth of 500 feet, they are taking out a 10-inch streak of gray copper and antimonial silver ore, which runs very high. A crew of 80 men is at work on the Mona, a property on Miller river, about four miles from Skvkomish. Clutnet £ Devpr'a Co»tly Ftr«. Monday night, December 4, Closset ft Devers, the oldest and largest coffee and spice house in the Northwest, were completely burned out at Portland, The loss was al>out $05,000 and insur ance $44,500. They have already a new gas roaster in operation, as they had an extra machine in reserve. Roast coffee orders can he filled now. For other goods they will l>e in shape in about a week. Their loss was heavy, hut they have energy and determination and have been much touched by the numerous offers of sympathy and en couragement from all their friends in every quarter. Chicago Policemen's ftenevolent As sociation realized $34,000 by the recent annual benefit at the Auditorium. Tr»na-Pnciflr Koutea. The North Pacific pilot chart for De cember has appeared, and among other interesting features it has for the flist time the sailing routes between the Columbia river and the Orient, and the route from the Columbia river down to the trades. The credit for placing Portland, Astoria and the Columbia river "on the map" is largely due to the Portland Chamber of Commerce. Defective Hues were responsible for over 11 per cent of the fires last year. WEEKLY TRADE REVIEW. Unfavorable WrutluT fnr Dlatrlbutloa mt Heannnitble Giioiln. BAdstreet's weekly review of trade says: The price situation generally ia apparently one of notable strength. Farm products, it is true, notably wheat and corn, have been weak and lower on unsatisfactory foreign de mand, and a bearish influence exer cised by increasing supplies of forme* grain. Other cereals are stronger, however. Provisions have been lower, largely on increased receipts of hoga, but lard has been steady on good ex port demand. Woolen goods have been strong also, despite unfavorable weather. Haw wool has again ad vanced on heavy trading, and what ia additionally interesting, prices at the latest foreign wool sales appear to have gained to a parity with recent advancea here. Crop damage reports from Braril have been a moving feature in coffee, which started from a very low price level and, with large stocks carried over from previous years. The price of this staple advanced nearly 1 cent in November. A marked tendency to ward higher prices for hardware is re ported at a number of markets. Holi day business in this line has opened well, and the prospect for spring trade is regarded as encouraging. Wheat, including flour, shipment* for the week aggregate 8,699,490 bush els, against 3,083,677 bushels last week. Business failures in the United States, as usual at this period an larger, numbering 171 for the week aa compared with 202 last week, 212 in this week a year ago, 250 in 1897, 359 in 1896, and 815 in 1895. Businem failures in the Dominion of Canada for the week number 25 against 88 last week, 25 in this week a year ago, 87 in 1897, 47 in 1896, and 39 in 1985. PACIFIC COAST TRADE. Seattle Market*.
