A. L. Cralg, general puasenger agent of the O. R. & N. company lines, arrived home last night from a three weeks' trip that was undertaken primarily In the ; Interest of the company, but which was really of paramount Importance to the Lewis und Clark exposition. He attended the meeting of the Transcontinental Passenger Associa tion at which rates were decided upon for the carrying of 'passengers between the Middle West and the Pacific Northwest for the fair In Portland next year. Mr. Cralg Is well satinfied with the results of the meeting, the Portland roads having secured for the fair the lowest rates ever granted between these points. The round-trip rate from Khiibhs City, O ma ha or Bt. Paul and Port lund will be (46; from Chicago an additional $11.60, or the fare one way between- that city an Bt. Paul; from 8L Louis $62.60, or trie addition of one way fare between that place and Omaha. The rates from Northern and East ern Texas will be baaed on Kansas Ity, but will not exceed ne tare for the round trip. The tnmtnew from Southern Texas and Western Texas may come via El Piuro over ttie Southern Pacific, and the rate will not exceed one fare for the round trip. In every caae these rates apply for he trip only by direct lines that is, the tMsaenger must come and return over one of the transcontinental lines that rtm .directly to the Notrhwesjt. and cannot be routed out over the northern ttnea and return by the southern raids, or vice versa. This throws all of the Chicago and Missouri rlvT business to the roads known aa tnc northern lines the Oregon Railroad Navigation, the Northern Pacific., the Great Northern and the Canadian Pacific. Passen gers may come out on any one of the four roads and return on any of the other three. There will be about 10 selling dates for the exposition. These dates win probably begin In the latter Part of May and run through Sep tember, with three dates In each fortnight. The aettlera one-way rates from the Middle West to Oregon will be again placed In effect next spring, and also In the fall. The rates will oe $26 from Omaha, Kansas City and St- Paul and $$S from Chicago. They will begin In March and run through to May 16, and In tho ensuing au tumn they wilt be In effect from Sep tember It to October 11. This la an extension of two weeks longer than thea ralas were granted In 10. Arretted Charged With the Robbery of a Placer County Bank Last Spring. ALSO rHAREl WITH THE Ml'RDEK OF THE FAMILY.

CHOLERA IS GONE. (iencrnl Watle Says the Philippines Are Now Free of tlie Scourge. Washington. Nov. 16. Gen. J. F. Wade, commander of the Philippine division of the army. In his annual report, says cholera has disappeared from the Islands. He says that while the troops in the Islands have not been actively engnged, their presence there Is necessary as an aid to the civil officers. Cnntlifctlng, General Wade says: "The Filipino soldier, both scout and constabulary, has done and Is doing good work, but it Is the work of the trained soldier ngalnst the mob. He has been well armed, drilled and disciplined by American offi cers and led by these officers against the undisciplined, undrilled and poor ly armed outlaws of the provinces: men ot his own race, but lacking his advantages and having nothing to gain and all to lose by fighting. The talk of the Filipino soldier has gone so far that many persons have evolv ed theories for a continental army to be composed hi whole or In part of natives. "In fact, to Judge by what one sees and hears, most army officers and many civilians seem to keep bills for this purpose In stock, fully developed and ready to be drawn up In the form of an act of congress. In one respect to many of these schemes resemble the numerous projects for a Filipino republic which provide by name for a dlctutor and a lieutenant general."
