VIGOROUS PROTEST
MADE BYNIGARAGUA
Representative of Dr. Madriz
Presents Formal Statement
to United States.
WASHINGTON. Protest against
the action of the state department of
the United States in refusing to rec
ognise as binding under international
law, the order of Dr. Madrix. provi
sional president of Nicaragua, declar
ing Bluefie'.ds a closed port, and in
refusing further to take seriously Nor
way's recognition of this order, was
made by Corry M. Stadden, counsel
here for the titular government in
Nicaragua.
The statement in part says:
"King Haakon, having recognised
President Madrix as the de jure, as
well as defacto government of Nica
ragua, as all other -powers witk the
exception of the United States hav
ing diplomatic relations with Nica
ragua have done, it was eminently
proper for him to recognize the de
cree closing the port of Bluefields.
This action was based upon a formal
protest that vessels flying the Nor
wegian flag had committed hostile
acts toward a friendly government"
Mr. Stadden's statement concludes
with the observation that "If the state
department will diligently observe in
ternational obligations due to a
friendly state, the insurrection will
soon be suppressed, with due care for
the preservation of American lives
and property."
NORWAY MAKES MISTAKE
CHRISTIANIA, Norway. The for
eign office states that the action of the
Norwegian government In regard to
the right of vessels flying the Nor
wegian flag, to enter the port of Blue
fields, declared -under blockade, fol
lowed the receipt of a communication
from the Nicaraguan government
This communication, s hlch came to
Norway through its legation at Ha
vana, set forth that the port of Blue
fields had been closed to foreign com
merce in consequence of the condi
tions prevailing in that country.
It Is Intimated that the Norwegian
government acted under a misappre
hension as to the Nicaraguan situa
tion, and hence the statement of the
foreign office explaining what it did
and how it came to do it.
Cabinet Officers Mix In Polities
VANCOUVER, B. C On their way
to Alaska, where It is understood they
are going at the request of President
Taft to investigate and straighten po
litical conditions in that territory, U.
S. Attorney Wickersham and Secre
tary of Commerce and Labor Nagel
arrived here from the East and took
up quarters at once on the steamer
Albatross on which they sailed Mon
day morning. Although Secretary
Nagel, speaking for Wickersham, wh.
felt .Indisposed, would not admit it
and steered around the subject, it is
Intimated that the Alaskan political
situation needs smoothing out at once
in order that the party leaders can
give their attention to fighting the
growing insurgency movement In
many of the states.
RAILROADS WIN VICTORY
Interstate Commission Not Upheld In
Cutting Charges From Coast.
ST. PAUL. The railroads won a
substantial victory in the findings of
Frederick N. Dickson, master in chan
eery. These are the preliminary find
ings in the lumber rate suit institut
ed in the fall of 1908 against the in
terstate commerce commission by the
Great Northern, Northern Pacific,
Union Pacific, and Burlington.
The railroads asked for a rate of 50
cents a hundred on lumber shipped
from Portland, Or., to St. Paul, and
for 60 cents for Portland to Chicago.
The interstate commerce commission
cut this to 45 cents from Portland to
Bt Paul and 55 cents from Portland
to Chicago. Mr. Dickson upholds the
contentions of the railroads.
Indignant Women Parade.
LONDON. Tne greatest suffrag-

Hockett, Hyatt, and Miller Represent
Wallowa County Convention
Republicans,
Dr. C. T. Hotkett, G. W. Hyatt, and
A. C. Miller returned Saturday from
Portland, where they attended the
Republican assembly as delegates.
Being the only o.is present from
Wallowa, they cast the full 18 votes
allotted to this county, voting them
all for Bowerman for governor.
Mr. Hockett says It was a great
meeting, and everything was harmo
nious. No other candidate for gov
srnor except Bowerman had a ghost
of a show, as the Condon man had
gone 'out early and secured the votes.
The convention took great pleas
ure in turning down Harvey Scott-s
nephew, Duniway, for state printer.
Clarke, editor of the Gervals Star,
was nominated for that office. That
was practically the only deviation
from the slate.
Several of the joInUcounty dis
tricts took advantage of the occa
sion and made nominations, but
. lone was made by the Wallowa and
Jnlon delegates. The latter asked
-he Wallowa delegates to name
iomeone for representative and Dr.
Hockett was proposed, but he vetoed
-he suggestion because a larger rep
resentation of our county was not
present.

CHICAGO SUFFERS
SEVERE FIRE LOSS
Grain Dust Explodes in Malt
Plant and Flames Devour
Chicago Brewery.
CHICAGO. A property loss cf $3,
000.000 and 50 families made homo
less was the result of three fires
which swept over the northwest
part or the city Sunday. Hundreds
of buildings were threatened with de
struction. The Northwestern Malt & Grain
Co.'s plant, said to be the largest
malting concern In the world., was
damaged to the extent of $l,CO0.OO0
and the brewery of Charles F. Og.-en
& Co. was virtually destroyed, with s
loss of nearly J 300,000.
Both fires were said to be the di
rect result of the torrid wave which
wept over the city from the South
west, bringing the highest tempera
ture of the year, and causing explo
sions or grain dust in both plans.
The Are In the Northwestern Malt
Grain Company's plant broke out

lapsed, despite the fact that the fam
ily offered $3000 for the capture of
his "murderer." The family now
races a outer court fight with the In
surance companies to save more than
$100,000 of accident insurance, which
is void In case of suicide. Their main
hope seems to lie in a verdict of ac
cidental death, from the coroner's
Jury.
RIOTERS ATTEMPT
TO WRECK TRAIN
SOUTH BEND, Ind. As a climax
to a night and a day of rioting In the
yards of the Grand Trunk Railway In
which a freight train of 50 cars was
cut into ten sections, Pinkerton detec
tives were stoned, and five nasseneur
trains were stalled for hours, an at
tempt was made 8unday afternoon to
wreck east-bound passenger No. s
known as the Detroit and New York
express, due in South Bend at 1:61
o'clock. The engineer, by chance.
saw the thrown switch in time to
bring the train to a stop to preveni
a catastrophe. When be left the en
glne to investigate he was stoned by
a mob, mostly foreigners, but the
timely appearance of police prevent
him from being seriously hurt.
Governor Marshall declined to end
state troops to South Bend upon i
request by message from the sunt r.
Intendent of the Grand Trunk Hall
way.

MINNESOTA MAY HOT
LEVY STATE TAXES
State Has Nearly Four Millions
in Its Treasury and
More Coming.
MINNEAPOLIS. Citizens ot Min
nesota may not be called upon to pay
taxes next year. At present the treas
ury of the state Is zroanln under
the burden of a surplus which has
never been duplicated. On October 1
there will be nearly $4,000,000 in the
state treasury.
The unusual amount of money in
the state's cash box has come about
through the successful settlement of
cases whlcb have netted the com
mon wealth large sums of money. The
largest of these items came from the
settlement of the lumber cases, the
gross earning tax cases, the Kenned
inheritance tax cases, and others. Not
only have large sums of money come
into the treasury, but they will result
in constantly augmenting streams of
gold In the direction of the state's
coffers, so that Minnesota bids fair to
become a state unique In the history
of taxation a state that may find it
not necessary to tax Its people one
cent for the general maintenance of
state government. '
