The official proceedings show that ex Sherlff's Smith's bills against the coun ty are over $14,000 for levying and compiling the delinquent tax roll, and this bill rather staggered Judge Gray and his associates. They declined to allow it when It was taken up at the morning session, putting the matter off until later In the day. When the court met after dinner, it was found that Judse Gray had requested some of the heavy tar-payers to meet the court and give their opinion of the justness of Mr. Smith's bills. Some of the in vited ones declared they guessed the court knew Its own- affairs, while others had their little say and looked "with envy on the ex-sherlff, who sat by his counsel, Judge Lighter, with a smile that denoted he at least believed he had a lead pipe cinch on the county for the full amount of his bill. The bill looks large. . It Is large. But that is not the quaation. The question is, Is it a bill that the county Is com pelled to pay according to the law of the state? When the voters of Clatsop county put Judge Gray In ofllce they were certain that he would scrutinize every bill against the county carefully, and he Is doing It. This bill of Mr. Smith's rather staggered him. It would stagger most any person not acquaint ed with the law. But It Is the genera belief that on the re-assembling of the county court on August 27th, that Judge Gray will have gone over the matter "carefully with his advisors, and will have ar rived at the coucluslon to order war rants to be drawn for the full amount. We'll see what we'll see. The French papers have been noting the curious way In which the career of President Carnot was connected with the figure "7;" h ewas born in 1837, was admitted to the Eeole Polyteeh nlque In 1857, was elected by virtue of Article 7 of the constitution to the office of President of the Republic In 18S7, was assassinated at the age of fifty-seven. In the seventh year of his presidency, in a carriage containing seven persons, (four inside ond three outride, a coachman and two footmen) on the 7th day of the week, by an Ital ian (a word of seven letters) named Cesorio (also formed of seven letters) J Finally,.he wos borne In triumph to the Pantheon on the first day of the sev jenth month of the year, seven days i after his death. The Democratic Tariff Confer ence Unable to Agree. BIG WINE SYNDICATE. The Vigilant Defeated Yesterday After Scraping the Ground in tiouiuard Kay. Associated Press. Washington, August 9. The Demo cratic conference had expected to be able to announce an agreement today. Instead of reaching any definite con clusion, the day closed with the bill in quite as uncertain a state as ever before in Its history, and with the sit uation in no wise Improved, and with the feeling between the friends of the the senate and the house bill intensi fied, instead of allayed. No one was prepared to say what the outcome would be, or when the end would be reached. It was apparent at the very beginning of the conference that those who had concluded at the adjournment of the session that an agreement would be arrived at today, had not taken into account a possibility of misunderstand ing or a change of mind. This dis covery was made when the senate con ference proposed to go on with the bill upon a basis of a duly of 90 cents per ton on coal and free Iron ore, where upon the house conferrees announced their unwillingness to assent to this arrangement, and stated they would Insist on a reversal of these terms, with coal free and iron ore dutiable. They understood they were to have a choice between the two. The avowal of this position produced great con fusion, and led to the exchange of re marks which were not altogether po lite. The senate conferrees thereupon decided to report the state of affairs to the conservative senators, and when the conference adjourned, called Sen ators Gorman, Aid rich, Smit h and Murphy into consultation. The whole situation was outlined to them. They were not only made acquainted with the position of the house conferrees for free coal, but were given to under stand that, other conditions would be expected by the house conferrees along the line of the bill, Including woolens, cottons, metals, glass and earthenware. They decided on an emphatic negative In reply to these propositions, saying if the body of the bill was not pre served virtually as it passed the sen ate, the report of the conference when made, would not be accepted by the senate. Senator Brlce proposed an In novation in the shape of a proposition that the house conferrees be given an opportunity to secure free sugar. His idea was that the senate conferrees ehciuld h'olunteer to recede) entirely from the senate sugar schedule, . Tlie question was, therefore, not dis posed of when the conference ad journed for the day, NEWS FOR GRAPE GROWERS. A $10,000,000 Syndicate Organized to Stimulate the Industry. San Francisco, August 9. At a meet ing of the wine growers this afternoon II. Eppsteln, prebident of the associa tion recently formed to organize a trust embracing all wine growing interests of the state, reported that seven of the leading wine merchants had signed ar ticles of Incorporation and forwarded them to the secretary of state. The syndicate will control 80 per cent of the grape product of California for the next five years. Today's action doubles the value of the crop, as the present price of grapes If $5 a ton, while the syndicate agrees to pay not less than $10 a ton. Seven houses are in the syndicate, and- more will soon be ad mitted. The capital stock of the com pany is $10,000,000, of which $2,600,000 has been 'subscribed. These houses transfer all their assets to the syndi cate, but each will preserve Its Integ rity, keeping Its labels, trade marks, and brands, while doing business as a part of the syndicate. All of the bus iness will be done under the supervision of the board of directors. One branch of the business will be to advance about $2,500,000 annually to the vlne yardlats for expenses in the cultivation of vines, gathering grapes and making wines. ' This move on the part of the wing men is expected to revive the languish ing wine industry of the state, and maka wine growing profitable once more. AN EXCITING RACE.

In the second round the Brltanftla Increased her lead to 3 minutes and 18 seconds.
