OREGON'S FRUIT IS SUPERIOR. It is Stranger Than Fiction Not Much of a Hero -Chinese Farce. Unusual religious rites were ob served jh he opening of the Rus sian exhibit in the manufacturer building ; Saturday. Strangely robed priests held services accord ing to the ritual of the Greek jcJburfib in the Asiatic pavilion. Commissioner-General P. de Glak hovskoy and other members of the commission, a number of exhibitors and others attended the services. The ceremonies were conducted by the bishop of the Russian Greek church of Alaska, assisted by loral priests. The blessing ol God was asked upon the czar and the president ol the United States, The bishop, dipping his hands in holy water, sprinkled the entire section, and dedicated it to the glory of the church and the advancement of the human race. After the ceremonies the guests were tendered a reception. . They were received at the entrance of the Manin pavilion by Commissioner Glaukhoyskoy and Admiral Kosna koff, and the memberf of the com mission. The famous Ivanhoff chorus was sung during the recep tion, and then luncheon was served. TRULY A MOTLEY CREW. It was a Rtrnnge procession, pro bably unparalleled in history, which wound through the avenues of Jackson Park, among the pal aces of the great ; White city Sat urday. In front of these evidences of the flower of civilization walked the representatives of the most un tutored savages gathered from the four corners of the earth and the islands of the sea, intermingled with representatives of, the oldest civilizations, and other queer, out landish people. The denizens of that motley place, Miday Plaisanee. turned out in full force. Warriors of every clime, from - United States regulars, who headed the proces sion, to Dahomevan ; Amazons, filed by, intermingled with Orient al dancing girls, Snith Sea island ers, 'Algerians, Bedouins, Turks, Egyptians, Esquimaux camels ba boons', donkeys and trained wild beasts, making such a turnout as never graced even the triumph of a. victorious Roman gsneral returnr ing from conquest. Oregon's Fruit. . That Oregon's exhibit is well worthy of the state is evident from the following clippings. Chicago Evening Journal: A re presentative collection of fruits from. th growers of Oregon is ar ranged on the east side of the north hall in a glittering array of glass jars.. Uregon prides herself on her prunes.! Her soil produces with utmost impartiality Italian, Ger man, French, Hungarian and her own "silver prunes." When it comes to a matter of size the state is als6 ; well to force. There is a pear in her exhibition which meas ures 9 inches . and weighs 4J pounds; a "Gloria Mundi" , apple weighing 2 pounds, a cherry 3$ inches diarneter, and peaches 174 circumference. . Chicago Tribune: In the horti cultural building, Oregon, which was the first state in complete readiness and which opened May 1, makes an exhibit which should be seen by, all. It is a wonderful stoVy of the resources of the state. Its plan of display is remarkably artistic and shows its many vario t'3 of fruit in jars and on platei to great advantage. In 'all there are 400 plates efa))kiir that make the, mouth water, and 240 immense jars of fruit in solution. There are monster pears, quinces, plums, peaches, I anricoti, clwr'ea and grapes, and oe of which, except the two latter, would do for dessert for a medium-sized family. There are 9Q cases of prunes, sun-dried apples, pears, plums, peaches and other fruits. Chicago winter Ocean: Sections of horticultural hall contain fruits and vines, ortmore properly speak ing,. the displays of the bureau of viticulture and pomology. Of the latter Oregon, California, Utah and Nova Scotia hav exceedingly fine exhibits ready for inspection, St. Lonis Grower: Oregon is making a display of fruits at the WorldV fair that will be viewed with special interest by fruit-growers and canners. In the exhibit are peaia weighing fmr pounds, peaches as large as font-ball, Ap ples., six incnes in dnm",t r. plums larger uvmi g-o-.

Oregon is th first state install an exhibit -of pomology. The fruits are in closed . in glass jars of various sizes, and arranged with a view to harmony o colors. The space allotted to the state is 50 lineal feet against the wall and 50 lineal feet of table space direct ly opposite. This space will be tilled with ripe fruits in season, supplied from Oregon by express. The jars containing the fruits are of fanciful design, and will be ar ranged in tiers upon a stand made of native woods. Oregon's horti cultural exhibit at Chiengo is highly ep ken of on all hand. - Stranger Than Fiction. December 12, 1892, Peter Meggs was convicted at Anderson, Grimes county, on purely circum stantial evidence, of the murder of Mike Ferry, Kent need to a lite term and Rent to Ilmitsvilie. Two .or three months after his arrival there Mike Ferry, the man whom he wa3 supposed to have murdered, bobbed up in western Texas, where he was arrested for committing a felony, convicted and sentenced to a short term in the same prison where his eup p 'sed slayer was confined. The men recognized each other immediately, but Ferry, being legally i dead, cannot testify in behalf of Meggs, and the latter, being a convict, cannot testify in his own behalf. The matter has been brought to the potice of a well-known " firm of Galveston lawyers, of which Con gressman Gresham is a member, and they "will summon six citi zens of Hempstead, where Ferry is well known, to proceed to the penitentiary and: identify him. This being done, steps will be taken to secure a pardon for him in order that ' he may testify in behalf of Meggs and thus secure his release. .Lawyers who have been looking up authorities in the case say there is no such instance since the lime of William and Mary, : ,:: . ;' Not Much of a Hero, ' ' The Roseburg Review says that ''Hero1' Richardson tried to escape from the county jail . Friday but was unsuccessful. The prisoners had been let out into the corridor after dinner, and the train saver at once" proceeded to dig through the wall. He had an old case knife and a short bar of iron which le haa secured in some way .and was making rapid progress when the Indian Fern gave the alarm. He had already removed, several bricks. - : -v ' 1 ;. . 1 '- ..: - --.,.. ....... ii ,. tr - u 1 1 . .., ,. . The Chinese Farce. - ; Astorlnn. , " . Portland is manifesting a de cided affioityfor Chinese immi grants. The Danube is a case in point. That steamer arrived at Portland, May 18, with 504 Chinese. The happy , thought oc curred to the health officer that there was small-pox an board, so he ordered the Danube, with its over-crowded, suffocating human cargo into quarantine. When as might have been , expected, no case of small pox appeared on board,.. the Danube was - turned over to Collector, Lotan and his deputies, who are supposed to have devoted twenty-five, days . to determining how many of the Chinese are entitled, to admission. How long will the farce continue? How long will the Portland press maintain ciiminel silence?, The whole affair is tainted with stu pidity and fraud. Baffled at San Francisco and in the Sound, the Chinese smufl-elers have found. in the heart of Oregon, a place where the law is practically null ified' and the doors are "thrown wide open.- Mr. Lotan should rise up and explain how such things are:possibIu.

WILL BE KEPT OPEN Chief Fuller Say s the Worlds : Fair Gates Must BE OPENED SUBDAI HEREAFTER Mountains of Silver Exports and Imports Billions of It The decisions mean to a cert ainty that the World's fair will be kept open on Sundays and that settles the case tor all time as an appeal would have to go to the supreme court , of the United States, which does not meet until October, when the fair will be ended. Every seat, was taken fully one hour before the tim announced when court would de-; tide the case and standing room was exhausted. Chief Fuller in rendering the decision spoke as follows: "Deeming it : desirable that this matter be disposed of at onse we should annou'.?e the re sult at which we have arrived, postponing for want of time the full expression of our views, which will hereafter be given." 1 The appellees have submitted a motion to dismiss this appeal upon the ground that the jurisdiction of the circuit court was in issue, that case involved the construction or application of the constitution of the United States and , that the qonstitionality of the United States was drawn in question therein, that therefore the appeal for a final decree would lie to the supreme court of the United States and not to this court, and hence this appeal which is from an iaterlocutdry order cannot be maintained, under section 7 of the judiciary act of March, .: 1891. VVe do not .understand that the power of the circuit court to de termine the case was denied, but that the appellants contended that the Ut.iied States had not by their appeal made the case proper ly cognizable in a court of equity, the object was to the want of equity and not to the want of power at all. The jurisdiction of the court was therefore not ..an issue and within . the intent or meaning of the act so far as the construction or application of the constitution of the United .States, and the constitutionality of the laws of the United States are con cernedi we are of the opinion thai me orcier we cauecj; to - review in volved or drew in.auestibn neither one or the 6ther jnjhe Lsense that Mie action of thewircuit court was invoked. Thedisbosal of th pro ceedings of the disposition of the contention rests upnj the ground as to whether the decision had any reference to the construction or application of - the constitution or the validity of acts of. congres in that instance and the conclus ions upoi; which the order was based were invoked at the con struction of that haracter. The jurisdiction of this court to review, cannpt be defeated at the instance of the appelees' because the con stitutionality of the acts. upon which'they rely might have. ' j 1 Mountains of Silver. Lake Wolfard, who has just re turned fronj the Slocan county, in British Columbia, tells the Colfax Commoner! ''In spite of the fact that it is a. newly-opened region,' the chances for transportation are par excellence. ' , From Kelso, one may. take a boat over Dead Water lake and river to Bonners Ferry, and thence by way of the Great Northern to Spokane. VL5 -- "The development has not been pushed far enough as yet to prove that theee mines have any great depih, and probably i'50 feet is the. lowest depth - vet retuli ' M the Skjonn. " fa ) far as Ihty have gone,' however.' the- minu ttoii to gtow beitef both as to grade and size of ore body As to the surface show ing, it is a common remark among old mining prospector that the Slocan . country makes a richer showing for silver than . has ever been known in the United States 6r British Columbia. So great, in act, ?s this surface showiug, that xtensive mining will be done and a large output returned from what it in sight. ., , t. The grade of the ot6 is the catch ing feature of the Slocan country. I have heard of only two or three pro prietors m the camp where the grade of , ore his run r below 100 ounces to the ton. The Washing ton mine, Mountain chief, Jackson, Freddie Lee, Bluebird, "Noble Five" group, Grady group and Alamb have already shown exten sive ore bodies, which run from 120 250 ounces to the ton, with 50 to 80 per cent in the lead. "When we consider that in lhf de-'r d'Aleiuv district, the average grade of gilver galena ores docs not exceed 25 ouuoes per ton, the possibilities f the Slocan region are almost beyond computation. Besides those I ha-ve mentioned there are properties like the Dar danelles, big Bertha and others, which run as high as 400 to 600 ouncesper ton. "Indeed, the v most suspicious feature of the camp is the pherx menal high quality of its ores, raising a natural doubt in the practical mind as to their perman ency. Swarms ot prospectors are already making . their way into that country; but It will be about 60 days before they can prospect to any advantage, as ' the higher ranges are now covered with snow to a depth of from seven to ten feet." . Exports and Imports. The total value of exports of . merchandise from the United 1 States during the , twelve month ending May 31, 1893, were $848, 373,845, a decrease of $174,610,700 over the preceding period. The values of imports during the sama period were $936,901,287, an in crease of $108,053,186. During the twelve months ended May 31, the export of gold amounted to $123,095,453, and the import, $20, 658,725, The exports of silver amounted to $40,138,578, and im ports, $23,764,541.

The: amout 'sent ' out within the past ten days is i believed to exceed $14,000,000. When asked as to f the cause : for tH large shipments which main- ly'go to the West, bankers agreed in i saying that the demand was largely due to the distrust 'pretXt I: n. . :.. if" vauiug every wnere m tue counti and especially in the West whera there, have been & great many failures both of banks and com mercial houses. The stringency of th e money market is being experienced at bgth ends ol , the - line now. Sav ings banks as well as other banks ou West, are all fortifying them selves ; as much as possible and that, especially in the case of country savings banks, is causing the hoarding of, money in those places and a consequent driar up on the banks of New , York, City. As' a result . many New , York banks are being compelled to call in j loans - in order to . maintain theli lawful reserve. - The sending foreword of wheat, it is believed, will only account for a very small part of the , demand ' for currency from, the West. ; - ' As an indication of how tho monetary stringency ; is .affecting trade n all its ramifications. iK" h reported in Wall BtreeU-irv,; i ttiat three large mercautyW i"ucs- qiiivea are n'Si exterisions jnTme city fic'ii ' whole sale houses of which they : bought goods.
