Nicaraguan President Undiplo
matic in Censuring United
States Government.
Washington, June 20. Madriz has
drawn from this government a sharp
reily to the protests he made to the
Pnsiden, alleging that the United
States has prolonged the war In Nic
aragua because It refuses to allow
the . bombardment of Bluefields or to
allow the Venus to maintain a block
ade there.
Consul Olivares, of Managua, has
been' furnished with ' a statement to
hand to Madriz. It tersely observes
tiat if any violation of neutrality has
o ;curred, it was when the Venus sail
ed from New Orleans as an expedi
tion of the Madriz faction.
Madriz' Protest General."
-' Madriz protested ' not to the United
States alone, but to all the South
American, and Central American re
publics. "The statements in his tele
gram are construed by the State De
partment as an effort to place in a
false light the policy oi the United
States in regard to Nicaragua. Some
governments that received his protest
have asked for -Information from
Washington upon which to base their
replies and there has .been an ex
change of telegrams between Presi
dent Diaz and President Taft
Information Sent to Mexico.
President Diaz, It Is explained, mere
ly asked for Information, and Presi
dent Taft, replying In a cordial man
ner, sent to the government at Mex
ico City the same statement which
consul Olivares has been directed to
hand to Madriz.
Secretary Knox decided that the
Madriz protest required the special
notice of this government because
the allegations ' made evidently were
founded on . errors as to the actual
facts and applicable to the principle
of war.

Demonstrative Throngs Wit:
ness Parade and Drive Up
Broadway, .
:T-; --; ;. ' :rl.
Former President Theodore Roose
velt returned Saturday to New York
from his trip througa Africa and
Europe, which began Immediately on
his leaving the white Louse, and whicn
has lasted for 15 months. .
Colonel Roosevelt was greeted by
such a demonstration of popular en
thusiasm and personal devotion as had
seldom, if ever, been accorded to a re
turning American traveler.
Each step. In this eventful home
coming, from the time he bad debark
ed from the steamer Kaiserln- Augusts
Victoria until he moved up Broadway
amid the tumultuous demonstrations
of large throngs of people was s one
continuous ovation and tribute of .pop
ular enthusiasm.
The stages In this welcome were
crowded into hardly more than three
hours. At 8:30 in the morning Mr.
Roosevelt left the steamship amid the
roar of big guns from battleships and
land forts and a ' pandemonium of
team whistles from water craft and
the factories along the water front
Aboard the revenue cutter Andro
scoggin, he moved at the bead of an
Imposing marine parade, .p the Hud
son river to Riverside drive and back
again to the Battery amid the contin
uous demonstrations of water craft
and the multitude along the water
. The landing at the Battery was the
signal for another clamorous ova
tion. ' y
Mayor Oaynor extended official felic
Itations and Mr. Roosevelt spoke brief
ly but significantly of the part he will
continue to take In public affairs. At
11 o'clock the start up Broadway be
gan, through densely massed throngs
extending for five miles along the
main thoroughfare of the city. .

What Our Lawmakers Are Do
ing and Other Items of
Washington, D. C The administra
tion's railroad bill Is now a law, hav
ing passed both house and senate and
been signed by the president The bill
Is substantially in accordance with the
president's message demanding
amendments to the interstate com
merce laws. About the only excep
tions are that It does not legalize hold
ing agreements made by railroads, or
permit the regulation of the issuance
of -stocks and bonds. ' It creates a com-
merce court and broadens the scope of
the jurisdiction of tho Interstate com
merce commission regarding ' rail
roads. Statehood BUI Passes.
The house concurred In the senate
amendments to the statehood bill and
passed the measure without sending it
into conference. ,
It cannot be stated definitely when
Arizona -and New Mexico will come
into the Union, as the constitutions
adopted' by the proposed states must
be ratified by congress and approved
by the president It will be necessary
for the territories to hold constitu
tional' conventions, which will require
many weeks, submit the constitution
to the people of the territories for
adoption, and then return them to
Neither City Favored.
Unwilling to favor either of the rival
Panama exposition . cities, San Fran
cisco or New Orleans, the house com
mittee on foreign affairs decided to re
port favorably two resolutions, author
ising the president to invite foreign
nations to participate in each exposi
tion to be held in the two cities, when
ever each city had raised $7,500,000
for the purpose of holding its exposi
tion.' The senate" committee has taken
ho action on similar measures, and
neither house is expected to act on
them duringlhe present session.
Balllnger Probe Waits.
The chances of a verdict from the
Balllnger-Plnohot Investigating com
mittee during the present session of
congress are remote. The committee
held a meeting behind closed doors
and Senator Nelson said after the
meeting that he did not think it would
be possible for the committee to con
clude Its labors before the adjourn
ment of congress. The committee has
authority to meet during the recess of
'congress and It la possible that the re
port will be Completed and given to
the public during the kummer or fall.
Cannon Defends Rules.
The old rules of tho house were de
fended and critics of the speaker were
severely scored by Speaker Cannon In
a brief address In the session of the
house. 'Mr. Cannon contened that tbe
rules as amended by the fifty-first con
gress and as enforced by him, had
never lnterferred with the will of the
majority of the bouse when an actual
majority had objected on any propo
siUon..; ,
.Session Nears End.
' Congressional ' leaders confidently
expect to wind up the present ses
sion this week, and adjourn not later
than Saturday. If the session is cap
rled beyond that time It will be be
cause of amendments to tbe general
deficiency bill or complications In con
nection with the omnibus public build
ing bill. ; ; i l' :.-';'.
' Public Building Appropriations.
The public building bill, reported to
the house, contains the following Ore
gon and Washington Items: Public
building at Medford, $110,000; at The
Dalles, $30,000; . site at Roseburg,
$10,000; public buildings at Olympla,
$100,000; Aberdeen, $125,000; SeaUle,
$200,000; site at Vancouver, $12.5t 0;
at Wenatchee, $12,000. ' '
Salmon Export Limited.
The bill prohibiting the exportation
of aockeys salmon from the United
8tates, except when frozen, canned or
salted, was passed by the senate. The
bill, which was introduced by Senator
Piles, Is a measura of ' retaliation
against British Columbia, which re
cently prohibited tbe exportation of
fresh Canadian salmon to Puget Sound
canners. '' t " ; - -T.", ',

Chronicle of Important Events
of Interest to Our
v Bowerman Acting Governor.
Salem. Oregon has acquired a new
governor, for the time being. He is
Jay Bowerman of Condon and suc
ceeds to the office because of and by
virtue of his position as president of
the Oregon state senate. The consti
tution of Oregon provides that In the
event of the resignation, absence cr
other disability of both the Governor
and secretary of state, the president
of the senate shall perform the offices
of the chief executive. The accumu
lation, of state business caused Gov
ernor Benson who is receiving treat
ment for a bothersome affliction of
the face, to call on Mr. Bowerman to
relieve the executive office at Salem
of the congestion. .
It Is believed by H. L. Benson,
brother to the governor, that It the
governor Is allowed to remain in San
Francisco lone enoneh. hla nhvalnlnn
will be able to restore him to his for
mer health. Heretofore the governor
the course of treatment had been com
pleted, necessarily to his great disad
vantage. 8tate Wins 8uit.
Salem. The state of, Oregon won a
victory over the Corvallls & Eastern
Railway company In the Circuit court
when Judge Galloway decided the case
of the railroad against the state land
board In favor of the board. This was
an Injunction action to restrain the
land board from selling a small quan
tity of ttdeland In Alsea Bay, and In
Itself was unimportant but Involving
as It does title to thousands of acres
of tide and, submerged lands tn Alsea,
Yaqutha and Slletz bays, the outcome
has been awaited with Interest
The company set up that the legis
lature of 1874 had ceded to tbe prede
cessors In Interest of the Corvallls &
Eastern Railway company all the tide-'
lands In the three bays named; that
tbe railroad company's right had be
come a vested one and that no sub
sequent session of the legislature had
the power to revoke the action of the
session of 1874.
Government Takes Invoice of Timber.
Eugene. Fifteen or more expert
timber cruisers in the employ of the
government are now tn Eugene ready
to start for the Cascade forest reserve,
where they will make a careful cruise
of all of tbe timber of the entire wa-.
tershed of the Willamette river and
Its tributaries. They will make a com
plete survey of the entire forest and
classify the land, segregating the tim
ber Into logging units, and expect to
be at the work alt this summer and a
greater pact of next
This Is the first attempt o tbe gov
ernment to take an Inventory of Its
timber resources, and hereafter It will
know just what It has and will be able
to dispose of It with some justice to
itself and fairness to Its citizenship.

Salem. According to a ruling made
by the secretary of state's office, there
were not enough votes caBt by the
democrats for their nominee for con
gressman In tbe second congressional
dlstrfct two years ago for that party
to nominate a candidate under the di
