CORBETT-MITCHELL
Will Fight Before a Chicago
! Atlethic Glut. :
SHE LOVED BOTH OF THEM.
A
Dastardly Deea-Governor Altgeld
. Ho Did Not Read the papers..
The Colnmbian Athletio club of
Chicago has about clinched the
Jieavy weight championship battle
between Corbett and Mitchell. Cor
bett has already signed condition
al articles of agreement to fight
Mitchell before the Coney Island
Club for a purse of $40,000." Presi
dent O'Mal'ey of the C6lumbian
club has started agents afjer Mitch
ell, and in the meantime has" se
cured Corbett's signature to W ag
reement which is in effect' that if
Mitchell will not accent the terms
of the Coney Island agreement, he
orDett; will accept the terms of
the Columbian Athletic club, name
ly $40,000. Furthermore, if Mitch
ell should default and fail to meet
him for the title of the heavy
weight championship of the world,
he - agreed to take in Mitchell's
place Peter Jackson. Three hours
after Corbett had signed,- a cable
gram was received from McDonald
in London, savin?: ''Mirripll on.
Pcepts, the $40,000 offer. I have
signeci tor him temporary articles
pending the arrival of the final
ones." The fight will be in De
cember. Loved Them Both.
Miss Annie Story, the beautiful
daughter of Col, IL G. Story, of
Yorkville, has many admirers, but
could not decide between McBrayer
and Govan. Finally she sent for
the minister and the young men.
one torn the rivals that the one
who come back to her first with a
marriage, license should be her
husband. Both men to leave York
ville at the same time and ride to
Dallas, the county seat. The von no-
men.- were well mounted and the
distance was nineteen miles. The
race was a hot one. McBravfir.
the rich lover, reached the ordin
ary tirst and secured the license
before Govan appeared. Thex lat
ter came in a momerit later and
secured a, license, tn a few mom
ents he also on his way back to
Yorkville. The race bjecame sharp,
Govan was. 'desperate because his
rival was better mounted. Mis
Story, her father and the minister
waited on the Diazza for tliA rnr.
ing rivals. McBrayer was seen
nrst. lie was excited and far
down the road it was noticed that
his horse was nearly exhaused.
The race was a most exciting one
and seemed his. He was nearing
the gate, in a moment Govan ap
peared in a by path, he was two
hundred yards ahead of McBrayer.
He first ran across the piazza and
won the prize. Ho had taken the
short cut through the woods.
The ceremony wa? performed and
McBrayer gracefully acknowled
ged his defeat and joined 'in the
marriage festivities.
A 1 Dastardly Deed.
Junction City Times: Thos. Al
len, of Long Tom, had a narrow es
cape from death Wednesday. Mr.
and Mrs. Allen were away from
home and on their return Mrs. Al
len baked some gems for "breakfast.
They tasted peculiar and Mrs. Al
len declined to eat them. Mr. Al
len, however, continued his meal,
and a short time thereafter became
quite 6ick. Dr. Lee was sent for,
and by his timely "arrival he was
enabled to counteract the influence
of the poison. The gems were
thrown out and it was but a short
time till the dog and cat were
stretched out dead. Upon exami
nation it was discovered the gems
contained strychnine in deadly
quantities. The gems were made
from batter kept in a jar, and the
presumption is that the strychnine
was placed in the jar during their
absence. They have no idea who
committed the 3astardly act or
why anyone should want to take
their lives.
Governor Altgeld.
A sensational sequel comes to
Governor Altgeld's release' of the
Haymarlcet anarchists. The
Chicago Journal raise's the question
as to whether he is leirallv eov
ernorofthe state of Illinois or a
citizen of the United States. The
Journal says Governor Altgeld
oases nis ciaira to citizenship on
the simple statement that hia
father was naturalized while the
sou was a minor child. Altgeld
was born in Prussia in 1848 and
came to this country with hia
parents when a boy. If the father
wa? made a citizen while the gov
ernor was under 21 there is m
question 98 to his title to citizen
ship; but if the elder Altgeld
waited until his son was over 21
before taking out his papers, then
the title of the governor to citizen
ship is badly clouded.
Ihe fact developed today that
the friends of Fielden, Schwab, and
Neebe knew before election that
Altgeld was in sympathy with the
causo of the amnesty association;
from the fact that he was one of
the signers of the unsuccessful pe
tition presented to Governor Filer.
Did Not Read the Papers.
Win, Abraham, an old and re
spected rancher living near Albany,
is now going to subscribe for every
paper in the country, and read
eyery one before he begins busi
ness each day. He has lived a
great many--years,' 'but he only
found out something on Tuesday
which struck him as new, . but
which is as old as he is and as
popular as the "grean goods" fake.
A. man claiming to ,be a brother of
ex-Senator Corbett,. hired n buggy
and drove to Abraham's ranch and
started in to talk trade and the
price of the farm was run up to
$150 per acre, and was on the
point of rising when another sleek
stranger put in an appearance, and
when a favorable time came he
wanted to go into the scheme of buy
ing also," but he only had $2000 in
bonds, which he asked ' Corbett
to cash, Corbett had only $700,
and the" rancher-'-was induced
to put in $1300 cash until morn
ing. The $2000 in cash and $2000
in bonds were put in a tin box, be
fore the old man's eyes, and the
box given to him to take home
and keep until morning when the
sale would be consumated. The
strangers then left. 'When Mr.
Abraham got home he thought he
would take one look at what would
be $4000 to him after he awoke
from a refreshing sleep in the
morning, so he opened the box and
found about a pint of sand with
hardly enough paper to wrap it
up. He. notified the authorities
but they could do nothing for him.
Only a short time ago the same'
trick was played on an old Polk
county farmer, evidently by the
same men. ;
To Save Flour Gold.
Willam llequa, formerly of
Pendleton, passed through Thurs
day evening on his return to Seat
tle from snake river, .having re
ceived a dispatch notifying him
ot the dangerous illness of his
wife, says the East Oregonian.
Mr. Requa has been engaged in
testing his gold mining machine
on Snake river near Lowiston, and
had just gotten it in good working
order when compelled to , leave.
A pump with powerful suction is
used, and this sucks up the water
and sand from the bottom of the
river which passes through tha
machine. The gold is caught in
a copper box containing, quick
silver and tht sand is thrown
back into the river, A big water
wheel was first fastened between
two catamarans, but this failed to
furnish power sufficient to operate
the pump, and an engine was sub'
stituted. This worked all right
and the plant iiad been running
about three hours when ho left.
He is confident' that his invention
will prove a success, and the fact
that gold was brought up from the
bottom of the river was evidenced
by numerous colors found in the
sand. The test attracted wide
spread interest nnd hundreds of.
people visited the scene. The
plant is now being operate'd by two
parties who are interested with
Mr, Requa. .'
Concerning Wool.
About 1,500,000 pounds of wool
are now stored in the warehouse
at Pendleton. Growers have large
ly concluded to consign, and it is
learned that perhaps some two
thirds of this amount has been dis
posed of in this manner, advances
being secured all the way from
four to seven cents. Shipping is
now in progress, and by the last
of next week nearly all of the wool
will be on the way east. It goes
to Boston, the greater part of it
being shipped to two, houses, J.
Kosbland & Co. and Christy, &
Wise.
About 1,500,000 pounds of wool
are now stored in the warehouses
at Pendleton, says the East Ore
gonian. Growers have largely
concluded to consign, and it is
learned that perhaps some two
thirds of this amount has been dis
posed of in this manner, advances
being secured all the way from 4 to

all of the wool consigned will fce
on the way to Boston.

THE HARD TIMES.
President Cleveland Issues
His Proclamation
CALLING CONGRESS TO CONVENE
Restores Confidence--Mexico Will
Not Suspend-Miller Placed. .
''Executive Maniov.
"Washington D. C.June 30 '93.
"Whereas. The distrust and an
prehensions concerning t.ha finnn-
. c .
cral situation which has prevailed
in all business circles has already
caused great loss and damage to
cripple our merchants, stop the
wheels of manufactories, being in
distress and privation to our far
mers and withhold from our work
men their wage of labor; and where-;
as; the present perilous co'udition
is largely the result of the" finan
cial policy which .the executive
branch of the government finds
embodied in unwise laws which
must be executed until they are
repealed; now, therefore, I,- G rover
Cleveland, president of the United
States, in the performance of my
constitutional duty, do, by this
proclamation, declare that the ex
traordinary occasion require the
convening of both houses of con
gress of the United States at the
capitol in the city of Washington,
on the seventh day of August next,
at 12 o'clock, noon, to the end that
the people may be relieved through
legislation from their imnendinsr
danger and distress."
KiX-Pbesident Harbison Talks.
Ex-President Harrison when
seen at the Fifth Avenue hotel and
asked for bis opinion on President
Cleveland's call for an August
session of congress, said: "I am
hot prepared to say whether I
think an August session of congress
will restore confidence which is
said to be demoralized. There may
bo serious obstructions. I cannot
tell what may be the extent of
Cleveland's knowledge on the sub
ject, but I know they would not
have repealed tho Sliorman law.
There are a great many other cau
ses which contributed to the pre
sent stato of affairs."
- Restore Confidence.
v - - ,
I If public confidence were to take
the place of tho present excitement
and doubt in financial circles there
is no reason why business should
not be prosperous, says the Dis
patch. Thero is more money in
the country than ever before, and
by reason of the want of confidence
more is locked up in the banks than
ever before in the history of the
country. '.-.Tho crops nover looked
bettor, and everything, so far as
Oregon is concerned, except the
want oL confidence, looks - prosper
ous 'and. favorable to the people.
lhere is no gpotl causo lor the
lack of confidence so far as Ore
gon 'ifj concerned. . Most of our
banking institutions, recognized as
such, are in conservative hands,
and their collaterals are as good at
befor ethis unnecessary excitemen.
The men at the head of our finan
cial institutions have their own
credit at stake as well as their for
tunes, and they will not betray the
trust imposed upon them. Let
public confidence be restored, and
there will come an area of prosper
ity in its wake. There is no good
cause why it should not.
Mexico Will Not Suspend,.
- Secretary of tho treasury Lim
antour wishes to announce to tho
world,that there is no truth in the
rumor that Mexico contemplates
suspending tho free coinage of
silver. On the contrary, ail of tho
Mexican mints will be worked to
their utmost capacity. The mint
in this city coins $14,000,000 this
month. Machinery is now being
erected which will increase' the
capacity to $18,000,000 a month.
There are ten other mints in the
republic which have a smaller ca
pacity. At present there exists
a scarcity of circulating medium,
due mainly to the heavy expor
tations of Mexican silver dollars.
This drain on tho finances of the
country must be met by increased
coinage. Mexico hasfurthermore,
a certain and unfailing market in
Asia for all of her dollars. The
increasing of exportations of coffee,
fibers and other products will en
able Mexico to export more dollars
than ever before. Silver is pro
duced in Mexico cheaper than in
the United States, and the fall in
price will be less acutely felt here
than in the neighboring republic,
In view of diminished importat
ions of foreign goods and the con
sequent reduction - in custom
house receipts, which will be
caused by the high price of ex
change, tho federal government
has ordered a discount in salaries
paid to all federal officials, 'f hone
who receive salaries of $000 or
less a year will be cut 5 per cent,
all from $000 to $1000 will be re
duced 74 per cent, and all above
$100Q.U1 suffer a 10 per cnt re
duction, The- Mexican govern
ment Anil take no further "steps
at present, Hut will wait the de
velophVelit of the panic. '

$3000 a year, and is much less
important than minister to Turlp
ey, which Miller became acitR--
didate for when he first arrived "
in Washington, about three months'
ago. The administration spems to
be dividing the appointments
among the various factions - in
Oregon and trying to give the
leader of each something. Mur
phy's man, Wilson, was appointed
at La Grande, although .Murphy's
enemies were sure he would not be.
Miller's appointment is anything
but a Murphy move, as they were
very antagonistic during tho latter
portion of their stay in Washington
The Liquor Monopoly.
A Sun special from Charleston,
S. C.,'says: . A most peculiar state
of affairs exist in Charleston today.
For twenty days or more the liq
uor dealers have been selling out
their stock of wines ami liquors to
get rid of them before July 1, when
the sta:e enters into a monopoly
of the liquor business. It is set-'
tied that there is to be no state
dispensary for the sale of liquor in '
Charleston and the people have
heretofore been preparing for. a new, 1
ptate of things. Many thousand .'
of gallons of liquor have been sold.
jSo great has been the demand that
the roads-have been taxed to trans
port liquors to the city, the pies
pnt 6tock having been lorg ago ex
hausted, and when tie .10vann-law -goes
into effect at midnight - mi
June 30, there will bo few ;..peoplo :
in Charleston who arc Hot pmvi- '
tied for at least six iv'iXL--t
'with a" supply . "-of "liquor.
This is the limit which is generally
set for , the law to last. All the '
swell clubs have agreed to obey the
law, .There is one largo brewery .
in the city. . This will probably
close on July 1. More than two
hundred places of busine.!, saloons,
restaurants and wholesale liquor
houses will be closed nnd several
thousand employes will ho out of
work. Many of the merchants
who have been forced out of busi- ,
tioss have made arragemcnts to
move out. . .

! The Evening Telegram of Port
land, says: The Chicago, Burling,
ton & Quincy surveyors have cros
sed over the Idaho state line and
are now making surveys and photo
graphing the topography of the
country along different proposed
routes of the line from Boise to
Portland. .
: A gentleman, closely connected
with the management of tho Bur
lington Construction Company ,
stated this morning to a Telegram
reporter that while the project of
building a line of the Burlington
to the Sound had been discussed
it had never been seriously consid
ered, and has now been abandoned
entirely. The work preparatory
to the completion of the extension
through Idaho and Oregon contin-..,
ues, however, and as soon as th j
money market becomes more fav
orable tho bonda for building the
road will, he states, be placed ou
the market and work on it com
menced in earnest.
