; refuse to cany any meat until the
i strike is declared off. He said tht
order was not official as the confer
ence board had no power to order the
men out. Donnelly denies that he will
call for a referendum vote as to call
ing off the strike. The reports of a
pending settlement are looked upon
as a ruse to prevent another break in
the strikers' ranks.

TWO STEAMERS IN COLLISION.

Disaster.
SAX FRANCISCO, Sept. In a
dense fog at 1 o'clock this morning,
the steamer Westport, bound from San
Francisco for Westport. collided with
tlie steamer Porno:,a boun 1 from Eu
reka for San Francisco, IT miles north
west of p,.int Reyes and, but for a for
tunate sheer at the moment of strik
ing it is believed by the officers and
passengers of the Pomona that the yes
-el would have been sent to the bot
tom with all on board. The Pomona's
guard was carried away and a num
ber of her plates bent and broken.
The Westport escaped with a badly
damaged bow and was forced to return
to this city. The Pomona limped into
port, her passengers in an intensely
nervous condition, some of the women
being on the verge of hysteria. Some
passengers suffered slight bruises in
falling from their berths.
WAS A HOT SUNDAY.
Mercury Climbed to 95 Degrees and
Then Some Yesterday.
Those Walla Wallans who hastened
home from the coast and mountain re
sorts in anticipation of a cool spell
wished themselves back in the shady
retreats yesterday. Despite the fact
that Old Sol's meandering across the
meridian is becoming shorter every
day yesterday was a scorcher. In the
early morning there was evidence of
the day developing into an ideal Indian
Summer day, but as the hours length
ened the smoke which enveloped the
city cleared away and the sun's rays
beat down with pitiless fury. Observer
Newman reported the maximum tem
perature at 95 degrees, reached about
4 o'clock in the afternoon. Towards
evening a welcome breeze started from
the mountains and a tiresome day was
over.
LOCAL WHEAT QUIET.
No Market Quotations Today—Price
Sagged a Trifle.
This being Labor Day and a legal
holiday, stock and wneat quotations
were not received at the local ex
change. Dealers, however, kept open
shop, although it was to catch up on
last, weeks' business rather than to
transact any new business, conse
quently grain quotations were rather
depressed from Saturday's trading.
Club was quoted around 6S to 6SV2 in
be house, and bluestem at 74 f. o. b.
Saturday trading was not very brisk
■>\vintf to the general belief among
farmers that the top price has not been
r-eaehed yet. and it was estimated th.it
not over 30.000 bushels was bought
luting the day at varying prices. .V
general upward tendency of the local
is looked for in view of tin
recent discouraging reports from tin
Dakotas and the eastern wheat crop.
REPUBLICANS ARE SCORED
Judge George Turner Opens Campaign
With Strong Interview.
SPOKANE. Wash.. Sept. s.—Judge
George Turner, the democratic nomi
nee for governor, excoriates the repub
lican state organization in an inter
view. The interview which was given
out upon his return from a week's trip
to the coast is really the opening gun
of the democratic campaign.
Asked for a statement on the issues
of the state campaign. Judge Turner
said in part:
"The disaffection of the republican
voters is based on the two-fold ground
that it is now apparent they have
nothing to hope for at the hands of
their present party organization in the
matter of railway regulation, and on
the bold, open and notorious domina
tion of their recent state convention by
agents of the railroads. I do not sup
pose there was ever so bold a surren
der of party integrity to private and
selfish interests as that made by the
Tacoma convention.
Bosses Ran Convention.
"Their manner of doing it was al- i
j most as had as the doing of the thing
i itself. The members of the convention
sat around, dumb and silent, while four
or five bosses canvassed the situation
i and determined who they wanted for
the state nominees and the character
lof the platform on which they should
j run.
"Finally, being unable to agree or I
j fearful lest their derision should not ;
;be asseptable, the bosses telephoned :
; for the chief agent of the railways to
come to them and actually waited five
lor six hours until he arrived to give
them definite instructions.
"When he arrived and made known
j his wishes the bosses, in turn, named j
: them to the dazed and humiliated del-j
| egates. and the Instructions were duly j
i observed and ratified by the conven- ;
tion.
The Post-Intelligencer and the sub-
I sidized railroad organs among the
' country press have recognized the
; ianger, and are endeavoring to relieve
, the situation by personal abuse of me
lis the democratic candidate for gov
ernor. They are printing in garbled
j shape everything I ever said in the
senate and much that I never thought
or said anywhere.
Proud of American Soldier.
"I am accused of having called our
soldiers in the Philippines "MoKinley's !
hired assassins.' A baser fabrication
was never invented. I discussed the
Philippine question in the senate free
ly and without respect to persons, as
I shall always discuss any question
when it is my duty to do so. but I ai
rways sympathized with the American
soldier and followed his successes with
pride and exultation. Xo man can
truthfully aver to the contrary.
"The most pitiful and contemptible |
of all the subterfuges employed to
throw dust in the eyes of the people is j
the pretense that I am and have been
in sympathy with the railroads in their j
fight in this state. I disclaim now, as I
always have, that I am an enemy of,
any substantial interest in the state,
but I am probably the last man in ■
Washington who can be charged, with
any show of truth, with being a rail-!
road man."
