AN EXCITiNC CAMPAIGN Egan aa Eeceiver Not to Have an Easy Time -Pacific Mail VVrcck Grcsham Funeral Train, Associated Press. - Omaha, May 29. Senator Thurston said that while the receivers could not claim a complete victory, they were thoroughly satisfied wl'th the equitable and Just order made by Judge Sanborn In the Oregon Short Line case. He said the recelv r to the property would take It with many burdens and he gave forth the impres- si on that the order was simply an open ing gun In what promised to be the most exciting campaign In western railroad an nals. W. S. Pierce, representing the first mortgage Interests, thought the value or the receivers' certificates would be great ly abridged when all the. loots beoime known. Mr, Egaji cannot gain pofsesston of the Oregon Short Line and U-Uh Northern Lines until the American Loan and Trust Co. compiles with Judge Sanborn's order, which miwt be extended by orders yec to be made by Judge Gilbert ait Portland at the hearing for Monday next and by Judge Merrltt ut Salt Lake at a h.arlng not yet set. OHIO REPUBLICAN CONVENTION. ZaneaviHe, Ohio, May 29. The Reoublt cam state convention was as tame today as it was lively yesterday. After b lng In sessson until midnight and nominating the. head of the ticket there was little left In the delegates and only the minor places on the ticket were kft to be lively over. Owing to the way In which the factional lines had been drawn by Ms McKlnley and Poraker men In nominating Gen. Bushnell last night for governor, it was evident tbait the slate headed by Busline! would go through. With a sin gle exception In which any Interest was taken, the Buslinetl slate went through, complete, for of eight plaices on the stat ticket tt secured a majority of the mem bers and all the officers of the stu te com mittee and roilly made a oleui sweep of the old regime. Yet the most material thing for the future is the condition of things which confronts McKlnley. His prisidenitlal boom in Ohio Is in the same embarrassment as was Sherman's candi dacy under tine Foster ' administration wMh Garfield's senatorial annex In 1880. In 1831 the Sherman and Blaln elem-nt as well as Poraker and Poflter was to contend wiiBh. In 18S8 Sherman had tha same experience, and In 1896 thore win be a McKinley delegation from Ohio to the Republican national convention, but It will be selected by Foraker and Bushnell, no mat)terwbat may be the result of tne state election next November. With the machine In such strong hand, there are some who think that Poraker may come out in 1896 as Garfield did In 1880. which would mean that McKlnley would come out as Sherman did at that time and In succeeding years. If the Republicans car ry the state next November, and Bushnell becomes governor and Foraker senator, there Is no telling all that will happen in Ohio In 1893 and thereafter. Should Uushnell serve four years as gov rnoi he would probuUy succeed Sherman In the Semite as well as Foraker succeed Brlce, and the old school of R publicans would be retired. There never was a con vention in Ohio that involved so many radical changes for the future as the one Juwt closed. FURTHER PARTICULARS. ' One Hundred and Sixty Missing, People Still San Francisco, Miay 29. The latest in telligence regarding the wreck of the Pa cific Mail steamer Collma received here was a cipher message to the local ship, ping firm, containing the statement of the third officer, Hansen, who was In charge of the boaib picked up. Ilans -n stiteo that about 11:15 last night, as the Collma was about five miles from Manzanlllo, and between that port and Punt a Bon Tel mo, an accident occurred to her ma chinery. Kin sen had not time to Inves tigate, but believed a boiler had burst. The OuHmo, was put about, but began to sink rapidly. A scene of confusion and wild disorder followed. One - boat was lowered and five others swung out, but so far as Hansen knows, the boat he commanded was the only one which got clear of the sinking ship. She quickly roundered, and to avoid suction, Han sen's boat quickly pulled clear and tr.e night being dark, It was Impossible to tell waaether the other boats pulled away from the wreck or not. If these boats once got clear away, the calmness of the sea, and the low sandy beadh twenty miles distant. Should enable them to ef fect safe landing In a few hours. As the passengers were all asleep, however, Hansen fears that fow escaped from cn rapidly filling steamer. One hundred and sixty passengers and crew are still un accounted for. Among the passengers unaccounted, for ars Prof. Haroid Whiting, Mrs. Whiting, Miss Rose WWtlng and two rtifMren, of j Berkeley. Prof. Whiting occuplM a ohalr In the state unlveretty. ' AAother Is J. E. Chilberg, of Baattle, who was on his way soutJh to' Interest Central American oof. fee planters In a new steamship line be tween Central America and Puget Sound. THE ENGLISH DERBY. ; ' Epsom Downs, England, May 2D. LorA Rosebery'a Sir Vlsto.won the Derby to day; Curson second; Kirk Conell third. There were fifteen starters. Richard Croker won on the first rac by backing Courtier simply because he had heard that the Prince of Wales back ed one of Cro leer's horses at Newmarket. Mr.' Oroker, however, lost his winnings on Courtier by .backing The Owl for tne Derby. Joseph Manley presented a letter of In troducilon from the late Secretary Grsn- am to Lord Rosebery on Monday last. The premier received him most cordially and chiefly owing mo this Mr. ' Manlcjr selected Sir Vlsto to win the Derby ana won enough money to pay a large portion of the expenses of his European lour. Probably the most fortunate of the Americans was Mr. Oxnard, the sugat millionaire of Nebraska. He said: "1 had tho same belts on Lord Rosebery s luck that I had on President Cleveland's luck; hence I backed Sir Viato." Congressman McCali, of Massachusetts, backed Curzon for place. He selected Curzon owing to tha marring of the Right Hon. Curjon to Miss Mary Letter, of Washington. W. S. Ferguson, of PKtsburg, Pa., ex- Mayor Grant, Peter Morris and Foxhsji Keene were olso big winners on the Der by. SEAL CATCH OP NORTH PACIFIC.

A law has beer, passed permitting commercial transac tions to be conducted on a gold basis. The Policy of the Great North ern Road. WILL BE PUT IN EFFECT On the 1ft P. if Hill Gts Control Lands to be Put in Hands of Settlers-Columbia Valley. In commenting on Hill's control of th Northern Jraclflo tho S:attle P. I.' makes the following statement; "Whether President Hill of the Great Northern has obtained complete control of the Northern Pacific railroad or not, It Is certain that he is to have a large ehare In directing the poilcy of the older road; ehould the proposed reorganlza- tloa scheme take effect, and on the whole It Is a good thing for this section of the country that he should have such con trol. The policy which It Is announced tJiat the Northern Pacific will adopt under th reorganization scheme will, If followed out, do a great deal more for the develop ment of the country thou the building of another transcontinental line. It is claimed that one step will be to get all the granted lands of the company In the hamds of actual settlers and producers as rapidly as po&E'.We, and to that end the prices are to be cut down to a very low figure. t This is an exhibition of sound bimlness policy. The company could go a step furoher with profit to lts?lf. From the itandpoint of dollars and cents nloni thero would bo mon.-y in It for the com pany to give . Its. land away in small amounts to actual settlers, wno would obligate themselves to put the land in cuttlvatSon at once. The prairie lands ot Eastern Washington now In wheat pay an annual amount per acre Into the rail road company for transporting that wheat to markot equal to from 25 to 60 per cent, of what tho land Itself wou:a sell for. . ... .. . Every acre of ground put In cultivation means that much added to the gros in come of the company, If every forty acre tract of available farming land wltn 1n the grant of the Northern Paclfle was In tha .hands of an actual settler wno farmed It, tho company would do the largest bualnefs of any transcontinental railroad in the country and could bid a long farewell to receiverships and mort gage foreclosures, and Its stick would have rather more Mian a speculative value. Mr. Hill has been tho pioneer among the owners of transcontinental railroads In following the policy of building up and developing the country traversed by his lines, with a view to the ultimate profits to be reaped, while nearly all the other companies have followed the narrower and pennywise policy of grasping for everything In sight by piling on all the traffic would bear as the rule In estab lishing freight rates. The former policy, In addition to being the most profitable In tho long run from a business stand point, hus had the effect of creating a friendly feeling towards Mr. Hill's road among all the people living along Its lin In marked contrast with the general sen timent felt In farming communities to wards the railroads on which they are Jepondent for transportation. Should .Mr. Hill's Ideas and practices In this respect be followed In the new man. agement of the Northern Paclfle, new In dustries will rapidly develop In ail por tions of the country traversd by th road, and the railroad companies and tne country at large will concurrently benefit thereby." Should It prove a fact, and there la every evidence of It, that Hill will con trol the future of the Northern I'aclllu, storla would come In for Its share ot the benefits 0:1 the same lines. The new road to Goble, connecting -t'here with that .reat system, would naturally, even It jperated Independently, follow the sanib principles of local development which are the life of every prosperous railroad. What Is now largely a howling wilder ness would be made to blossom as the rose and peace and plenty would abound. A ready market could be had for tne ram-htr's products of a.l kinds. A .argely Increased population would create a home market for all fruits, vege tables and dairy probucts, while the best possible prices could be obtained for cer eals for export. With such a possible condition of a'ffalrs, and with the encour agement that would be given by the broad management of the railroads, s.t tlors would soon occupy the lands. In creased, farming population naturally adds to the cities and towns, and soon the rich northwest would be a new empire, controlling the tradlc of the Orient, now Highest of all iu Leavening Power. w 4 a 1 ssu w r r m -i so rapidly developing sinca the recent victory of Japan, end overshadowing the cost In natural resources and importance. All this Is not only possible, but probable In the near future. Railroads can be run for the benefit of the people as .well as proflt to their owners, and tne time has come when such an experiment !a to be tried. If J. J. Hill Is not the de liverer of the west some other railroad manager will be, as the voice of an en HgWtened people demandB a hearing. , THE NATION'S HEROES.
