An extraordinary accident is reported
from Austria. Some extensive ware

that in clearing the debris a great

was discovered imbedded in a deep pit

decided that the premises were set on

Difficulty in Securing
BRITISH STEAMERS OFFERED
N. P. S. S. Co. Liners at the Govern
ment's Disposal—Thej Want Amer
ican Register— Negotiating for the
Colon and China.
Washington, May 25.— Much com
ment and some criticism has been
caused by the delay in forwarding
troops to the Philippines to support
Admiral Dewey. Both the comment
and the criticism had their origin in
the desires of the people that the fruits
of Dewey's victory should not be endan
gered by any lack of assistance from the
navy or war departments. It is known
now that the troops would have been
sent to Manila before this had it been
possible for the war department to
secure transports on the Pacific. The
utmost difficulty is being experienced
by the department in obtaining such
transports. The coastwise trade on the
Pacific is not large, as compared with
that on the Atlantic, and the majority
of the vessels engaged in the trade are
foreign register. Of course, ships fly-

ing a foreign flag cannot be used as
transports by the government, as such
use would constitute a violation of the
neutrality laws of the nation whose
flag the ships bore.
Tonight, the war department is nego
tiating by telegraph with the Pacific
Mail Steamship Company for charter of
two of the company's boats, the China
and the Colon. The Colon bears the
American flag, but the China is under
the Hawaiian colors. The discussion
between the war department and the
steamship company is now one of price.
Whether terms can be agreed upon
seems in doubt.
Tonight, Secretary Meiklejohn re
ceived an offer from the agent of the |
Northern Pacific Steamship Company, ]
at Seattle, placing at the disposal of i
the government the company's entire \
fleet of steamers, provided they be
given American register. The steam
ers are the Tacoma, Arizona, Olympia,
Columbia, Viotoria and Argyll. All
are British-built vessels and fly the
Commenting upon the situation
which confronts the department, Mr.
"If we cannot get vessels at what we
consider fair prices, we shall be forced
to impress as we need into the service
and leave the prices to be adjusted sub
eequently by a board appointed for the
purpose. We have made every possible
effort to secure vessels of American
register; indeed, we want nothing else.
But it is impossible to get them on the
Pacifio coast. We shall have simply to
ask congress to give American register
to Vessels that we can obtain. There
is no other way out of the difficulty."
The likelihood is the war depart
ment will bring such vessels of the
Northern Pacific Steamship Company
as may be needed to San Francisco, and
then ask congress to give them Amer
ican register, in order that they may
promptly convoy available troops to
Manila. It is the desite of the depart
ment that the troops following those to
be sent on Saturday shall leave not
later than June 1.
Sank at The Pier.
New York, May 25.—The tugboat
Goodwin sank in the Korth river today,
at the White Star pier, foot of Twen
tieth street. Two men were asleep in
their bunka. One of them, Hiram
Taylor, was drowned. Jeremiah
Lynch, the cook, was rescued. The
Goodwin was owned by J. R. Barrett,
who was also her captain. She was
valued at $15,000 and insured.
Washington, May 25.—The question
of the annexation of Hawaii has been
revived in the senate since the Hawai
ian resolutions were reported in the
house, gnd the friends of annexation
have been quoted as expressing a deter
mination to press the house resolution

Provincetown. Mass., May 25.—The
cruiser San Francisco, which arrived
here at 7 o'clock this morning, from a
night cruise, reports that she sighted a
craft resembling a large steamer sailing
in the opposite direction about 35 miles
off Boston light during the night. The
San Francisco trained her guns on the
steamer and started in pursuit at the
rate of 18 knots an hour and kept her
in range of her search light for a time,
bat could not overtake the fugitive.

Spain Preparing to Rink Another Re
New York, May 25.—A dispatch to
the World from Madrid cays: With
the incoming of the new government
renewed activity has been given to
foreign and home defenses. Torpedoes
have been laid at the entrance of all the
The new ministry has determined to
send at once what is known as the re
serve squadron, that is to say, the
armored warship Pelayo, the protected
cruisers Carlos V and Alfonso XIII, the
torpedo-boat destroyers Audaz, Proser
pina and Destructor, the dispatch-boat
Giralda, the torpedo-boats Rapido and
Patricia and the armed trans-Atlantio
liners, Joaquin de Pielago, Alfonso
XIII, Antonio Lopez, Ciudad de Cadiz
and Buenos Ayres. To the above will
bo added the Reina Regente, which is
being armed at Ferrol, and the Leon
XII, which has recently started from
Barcelona for Cadiz.
This fleet is likely to start at once,
and it Is publicly stated that it is going
to Manila. Significant suggestions are
made as to the possibility of the Pelayo
getting through the Suez canal with
her draught, but it may be readily un
derstood that the admirality is not giv
ing: its secrets away, and that the fleet
will sail under sealed orders, and that
it is quite as likely to go west as east.
It is stated at Cadiz very positively
that the Pelayo, Carlos V, three of the
Atlantic steamers and two torpedo
boats are to sail for the Philippines.
The Pelayo is well armed, armored and
manned and has good guns, but her
heavy ones forward will not swing,
owing to defects in the machinery, and
can only be fired directly ahead.
It is said at Cadiz that there are
mines in Manila harbor that were not
exploded when the American fleet en
tered, the electrio communication be
ing out of order. This has, 60 it is
rumored now, been rectified, and prep
arations are complete to give Admiral
Dewey a warm good-bye should he at
tempt to leave. Thia rumor will bear
a big lump of salt.

Washington Volunteers Ordered From
Camp Rogers to Vancouver.
Vancouver Barracks, May 25. —Ma-
jor-General H. G. Merriarn issued or
ders, which were received here today,
for the headquarters and band and our
companies of Washington volunteers,
now stationed at Camp Rogers, to pro
ceed without delay and take station
The troopa referred to in the orders
are commanded by J. H. Whalley, first
lieutenant in the Twenty-fourth infan
try, and a graduate of the military
academy in the class of 1890, who was
recently appointed colonel of volunteers.
Since the departure of the two com
panies of the Fourteenth infantry Fri
day, there have been only two officers
and one troop of cavalry to perform all
the duties necoesary in keeping up
such a large ganieon as this, and the
authorities appreciated the necessity of
having a greater number of men.
The change will bo of great benefit
to the volunteers, enabling them to
settle down to the routine and training
of garrison life. With a fine target
range and good skirmish and drill
grounds, the men will soon be in con
dition to perform any duty they may
in future be called upon to perform.
CAPTURED AND RELEASED.
British Steamer Taken In on Suspicion
of Being Blockade Runner.
Key West, May 25.—The British
steamer Ardanhor came into port this
morning in charge of an ensign from
the auxiliary gunboat Osceola, by
which the vessel was seized yesterday
off Carysfort light, because she was. act
ing in a suspicious manner, and was
supposed to be trying to enter Havana
At 1:15 P. M., the steamer was re
leased by order of Commodore Remey.
There is a good deal of mystery as to
why she was seized at Carysfort light,
where she was overhauled by the Osoe
ola off the Florida coast, and more
than 100 miles north of here. Upon
the anival of the Ardanhor at Key
West, Captain Dana made a formal
protest to the British consul, Mr. Tay
lor, who laid the matter before Com
modore Remey, with the result stated
above. It is thought the affair is now

Wheat Destroyed by Tornado.

of the crop has been destroyed by the
tornado of Friday night, and the severe
rains and winds that followed. Other
grain suffered correspondingly.

TO COLLECT OUR BILL.
Tariff ■ Regulation*;. for the Philippine*
■ Already Being Formulated. -
r Washington, May 25.—1n anticipa
tion of the early 'occupation oft he ' hil
ippines by tire lan and naval forces of
.the United States, the treasury depart
ment has already begun the formation
of regulations, and a scheme of tariffs
which will be collected by the military
authorities and turned into the treasury
of the United States, "as a military
| contribution." .- -;. ..
That the president has authority to
collect the Philippines revenues under
j existing conditions is not a matter of
doubt. It was several times don endur-
I ing the last war with Mexico, and the
authority of the government in the
' premises was sustained by decisions of
the United States supreme court, f
The court, in a case which grew out
of the capture and occupation of San
| Francisco and all the upper part of
California by United States troops,
held that the president, under the con
stitution, as commander-in-chief of
the army and navy, had a right to ex-
I ercise the belligerent rights of a con
queror, and to impose duties on im
! ports, as a military contribution: for
| the support of the army. This was the
j view held by the c^urt in another case,
! where it was also decided that the cap
j ture of Tampico, Mexico, by United
! States forces, though sufficient to cause
!it to be regarded, by other nations as
! part of our territory, did not make it
in fact a part of the United States un
der our constitution and laws. ,:
"It remained," said the court, "a
foreign country within the revenue laws
of the United States."
The tariff revenue law now being
prepared by the treasury will closely
follow the Spanish customs laws in
force in the Philippines. Just wliat
revenue they produce is not known,
but the assumption is that, inasmuch
aa the home government realized from
them last year approximately $9,000,
--000, the actual amount collected was
$19,000,000. The government will as
sume control of the revenues as soon as
the principal seaports am in our poa
fiession, and will control them at least
until congress takes specific action i-n
the case, or until peace has been de
clared between the two countries.
SPAIN IS PROTESTING.
She Has Keen Telling Her Troubles to
Madrid, May 25. —In the senate, to
day Count Altnenas, protested against
the alleged action of some American
warships in displaying the Spanish
flag in order to decwive the garrison ot
Gunntanamo, as reported on Saturday
last in a dispatch from Captain-Gen
eral Blanco, win) added that the Ainer
i ican ships were "recognized and re-
I pulsed." Tho count asked if the gov
i ernment has notified the powers of this
The minister of the interior, Senor
Capdenon, replied that he had notified
the powers, and described this reported
action as "cowardly and iniquitous."
Count Almenae said that in view of
America's manner of making "'war,
Spain must immediately decree priva
teering to destroy American shipping.
To this the minister of the interior
replied that the government had delib
erated upon the matter and "had even
taken certain steps which would soon
be made known."
Count Guandolon said the American
acts of piracy were admitted by certain
theorists as international law.
Senor Pacheco remarked that it was
doubtful whether such an act was legal.
"But," he added, "in face of the
Americans' conduct in the war with
Spain, we must not show considera
tion for them."
Four Jockeys Hurt.
St. Louis, May 25. —Four jockeys
were injured in the third race today.
Two of them, it is thought, were fatal
ly hurt. Just as the horses were turn
ing into the home stretch, Dick Collins
fell, bringing down several other horses.
Those most seriously injured are Sne'l
and Gilmore, while Hat hei soil and
Dugan are not so badly hurt.
- Washington, May 25. — Secretary
Gage today issued an order to customs
officers, notifying them that the port ot
Manilla, Philippine islands, is block
aded by the United States fleet under
Admiral Dewey, and therefore clear
ance will not be granted to merchant
vessels from that port. Instructions
also warn owners and masters of vessels
that in undertaking voyages to Spanish
ports not blockaded now, they run the
rick of interruption by future blockades
and military operations.
Another Fatal Collision.
Savannah, May 25.—Early this
morning a special on the Florida Cen
tral, carrying the North Carolina
troops, en route to Florida, collided
with a northbound vegetable train.
Private W. A. Barbee, company I, of
Durham, was killed, and private J. M.
Colloogh fatally injured.
Paris, May 25.—The minister for
the colonies, M. Lebon, has tendered
bis resignation, owing to the fact that
he failed to be re-elected to the cham
ber of deputies in the second balloting
yesterday of the general elections.

[Reported by Downing, Hopkins & Xo., Inc..
Board of Trade Brokers, 711 to 714 Chamber ©I
Commerce building. Portland, Oregon.)
Not in the memory of the oldest
wheat trader has there been a time
when the wheat markets the world over*
exhibited as much activity and irregu
larity as : chracteriaed £ them *,-. the % last \
week. The baying furore that started
in the I previous week was \ continued
with increased > force. 5 Sensational ad
vances were reported everywhere^ on
Monday and .Tuesday. 2 May in Chicago 1
touched $1.85; in New York it was
$1.91; in Duluth $1.80; in Minneap
olis $1.60; in Toledo $1.65; in Liver
pool $1.64, and in Paris $1.64. May
at one time was $1 over last year, and
at another $1.15. : These were the
highest prices, with one exception,
since August, 1869, and that was the
September corner run ■ by B. P. Hutch- .
inson, in 1888, when the price was put
to $2. In 1877 it advanced tosl.76}£.
Short sellers suffered terrific losses, and
the tension became extreme. The bulge
culminated Tuesday, and prices de
clined irregularly, Chicago showing a
loss of 55c, New York 4?o, Duluth 40c,
Minneapolis 20e, Toledo 28c, and Liv
erpool 80. - The advance has v been of
material benefit to farmers and millers
having wheat to sell. They took ad
vantage of it both here and in Europe,
and the wheat was rushed to market,
as there has seldom been a chance to
sell it for prices for more than a
day or two at a time. Arrivals at pri
mary points were 4,228,222 bushels or
more than double last year's. English
j farmers' deliveries were 84,400 quar
ters, an increase of 34,000 quarters for
the week, with an advance of 8s per
quarter, the price being 455, lid, the
highest in over 16 years.
Leiter sold over 1,000,000 bushels
last week, and in five weeks has dis
posed of about 10,000,000 bushels.
How much more he owns no one but
himself knows. His interests in Ma>
have been largely reduced, but he is so
largely spread out in other markets,
the wheat being held there in some in
stances on joint account, that no relia
ble figures can be made as to his posi
tion. , His interest, however, is the
lightest in a year. ' '•

THE EXCELENCE OF SYRUP OF FIGS
is due not only to the originality and I
simplicity of the combination, but also
to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the California Fig Syrup
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured
by the California Fie Syrup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other par
ties. The high standing of the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup | Co. with the mcdi- I
cal profession, and the satisfaction
which the genuine. Syrup of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. v It is
far in advance of all other laxatives,
as it acts on the kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating or weaken
ing them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial •
effects, please remember the name of
the Company— r
