A Riot Start3 up in the House of Commons. IS EXCITING IN PARLIAMENT. A Fatal Accident The Victoria Court Martial Getting Ready. ". There was a regular riot in the house of commons, the scenes en acted there being unprecenented in parliamentary history. Ten o'clock Friday evening was the hour set for the closure debate in the committee on the home-rule bill. The early part of the even ing was tame enough, being oc cupied by obscure members. At 9:45 Joseph Chamberlain arose to deliver the final broadside of the opposition. He was still smarting under the fash administrated by Gladstone' Thursday evening, and spoke with much bitterness, giving his opinion of the closure as ap plied by the government. He was frequently interrupted b jeers from the Irish and cheers from his own side. After one period of the interruption he proceeded. "The prime minister calls black, and his iadherents say it is good. He calls white, and they say it is better. It is always the voice of a god. Never since the time of Her od has there been such " Chamberlain' got no further, for with his half finished reference to Herod, there came from' the na tionalists such a roar of indigna tion as has not been heard in the commons since the time of Parnell. Chamberlain was plainly startled, but tried to talk on. His voice was inaudible. T. P. O'Connor sprang to his feet and leaning to ward Chamberlain, shouted ''Ju das" so loudly it was heard throughout the house. The rest of the Irishmen took up the cry and for half a minute shouted "Ju das" in chorus. - - 'j When the clock struck 10, Chair man Meller tried to put flie clos ure, but his voice could not be heard. Then he gave the custo mary directions, but , .several con servasies shouted he must first call O'Connor, to order for calling Chamberlain names. Meller pro tested he had not heard the epi thets in question. , Than every body started for the front bench, the unionists shouting "Gag." Others struggled in the aisles or between benches with radicals, liberals or Irish antagonists. John Logan, liberal, ran down to the first opposition bench and began upbraiding Edward Carson, Wind-' ham and Fischer jumped to Car son's assistance, seized Logan by the neck, threw him to the floor head first, and bundled him under the : bench. Somebody smashed Tim, Ilealy's high hat over his eyes and as soon as Tim got off, he jumped into the aisle in fight ing posture just as ' Hanbury was trying to get past. Hanbury was knocked over a bench by the force of collision. A free fight then broke out at the gangway, led by William Redmond, Parnellite who pushed over Colonel Sander son, the champion of the Ulster ties". Sanderson was rescued and headed an attack of Parnellites. . Blows were struck right and left. The whole space between the front benches, was filled with a struggling, cursing mass of mem bers, striking, clawing and upset ting each other. The 6eargeant-at- arms . were powerless. Finally, Gladstone begged Edward Majori banks, a sturdy liberal, to help stop the affair. Majoribanks dug his way through the belligerents and by dint of repeated appeals in the name of the premier; succeed ed in stemming the conflict, Colo nel Sanderson emerged first from the crowd of fighters, holding a bunch pf keys to his black, eye. I Others "followed in a more or less oamagea conanion. just as peace was restored the door leading to the lobby, opened and the redoubt able Dr.- Tanner, who had just heard of the fight, came rushing in, leaping over the benches in bis eagerness to get into the melee. He was quickly seized ' by the ser-geant-at-arms. Gladstone, sitting upright, had purveyed the whole scene with . an inflamed face and an expression of . sorrow, indigna tion and astonishment which will never be effaced from the minds of those who viewed him. Fatal Accident. .,' About 4 o'clock last Saturday afternoon Edsel Hoover,.iaged 20 years, waa thrown from a horse and killed. The accident happen ed at the Plummer place, about three miles from Prinevillc. Young Hoover rode a pony to the school house" where Miss Eflie Vandir pool wa3 teaching on lower McKay creek, and carried two of the smal ler children home on the horse. After letting the little ones off, the pony, which is apparently gentle but inclined to run, and Hoover re marked that he would give the animal all the run he wanted. Jt appears that after running a short distance deceased attempted to check the horse by turning him to ward a fence in which was ii gate way closed by bars. The animal attempted to jump the bars, but fell headlong over them,, turning a complete somersault. Hoover was thrown violently to the ground, striking on his head, and produc ing concussion of the brains. . The Victoria Court-Martial. The court-martial inquiring in to the loss of the battleship Vic toria decided that Captain Bourke was not responsible for the disas ter, and was therefore acquitted of all blame, The court expressed regret that Rear-Admiral Mark ham, on board : the. Camperdown, did not carry out his original in tention and ignore the signal dis played by.order of Admiral Tyron., The court added, however, relative to Markham, that it would be fa tal to the best interests of the ser vice to say he was to blame for carrying out the directions of the commander-in-chief present in per son.. The verdict was that the ac cident was entirely due to the or der given by Admiral Tryon, All the survivors were acquitted ; of blame. " ' Russia Getting Ready. . . It is learned through the author itative Russian sources that the Russian fleet now at New York are under orders to join the French Meditevanean squadron at Toulon. It was also stated three of the Rus sian warships now here have re ceived preparatory orders which may cause them to continue, after reaching Toulon, to East India waters. The informant, when asked if the orders had any con nection with the Siam imbroglio, professed entire ignorance. This ignorance was emphasized by a peculiar shrug of the shoulders. The date of sailing will depend up on cable orders from St. Peters burg. ' ' A Fight With Indians. A special to the World Omahai Neb., . says: For from some time the Indiah Soldiers " stationed at Fort Omaha have been in, the habit of raiding the orchards nea'r the fort. Yesterday sixteen red skins, led by High Eagle, a chief of considerable fame in the Sioux nation, took possesion of several trees in J. V. Vickery's orchard. He got a double barrelled shotgun and fired among the ' soldiers. Several were struck by; the. shot and Chief High Eagle fell mortally wounded. The Iodiansdrew their revolvers and the faOTOar retreated to the house.. VThb Indians sur-' rounded the house, and prepared to attack "it in front audf read just then A. N; j Hanson, ''a well known scout, 'dashe'd up from the-; fort with a revolfe? in each hantfy called Upon-the 'excited redskins' to quit,the 'phthises.' ,They'knw, iianson to toe a terrible fighter and they scattered ; for a few minutes. Before they had ijesumed their attack, ho, wevefV further as'slstaifce came from the ' forfr afrd; the fa? nter was saved 'from: tne vengeance of the Indians arrest. r IfeJ was placed finder The Wheat Outlook ri V Euough is now ' knownOft" present wheat crop to nfiikij and certain the statement that safe the yield this year will be exception allyjightin the United States. Qn the Pacific coast the prospefcts .in dicate an exceptionally heavy evop; but in the States of Idaho, Illinois; Kentucky,; Tennessee, Missouri,1 Texas, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota the acerage is light and the yield will be far below the average. The significance of this fact to the wheat growers of the Pacific coast become more apparent when it is stated that last - year these states produced 390,000,000 bushels of the total crop of tho 355,1949,000 bushels. These conditions were first brought out by the last gov ernment crop report. Philip Robinson,' a bov about 16 years of age, of G rant's Pass,: while out hunting in the mountains 'near Uirdseye creek one ;da,y. last week, came suddenly upon: alarge cougar in a thicket , of - brush; The boy raised his gun to shoot, the cougar, but the dog ran at the brute, and in the struggle that ensued the boy was knocked down and both the dog and the cougar ran over him. The dog finally succeeded in treeing the brute, but Philip was too badly shaken up and frightened to shoot him. Mr. Shoemaker, . who lives in ' the mountains naar by, came to the rescue and killed the cougar. ' " "SONNY" ONCE AGAIN A Brezzy Letter From Him Describing the BAKER COUNTY'S GOLD FIELDS. The Siamese Outlook Three Banks . in Portland Closed. Baker City, July 30th, 1893, . Ed. Press. . Owing to oppressive heat and other causes, we are still detained in the Denver of Oregon which by this time we like-quite well. . There is not much excitement here over the gold discoveries, they are so frequent that nothing but .the richest strikes are hardly ever heard of. There are at present here five men for every job and it is not ad visable for those without means to conie here for the present; This country, in a mineral sense, is . all right and in a few months possibly will furnish employ m'ent in the mines for thousands. While, as I have said previously, more work has been done here: in the mines this year than for several years previous, thure are many times more men here bunting employ ment from the ., silver districts.

The Virtue - inine has turned out over $75,000 in gold since the strike about ten days hgo. The. property is agai'V in litigation and may be closed down agairv The White Swan mine continues' to'send in good clean up of the "glittering" while the Mable mine is , holding its own and getting better every foot. A man by the name of Black, of Kansas City, dropped dead at the hotel yesterday afternoon. I was talking to him an hour before ho took with a hemorhage of the lungs. He was then remarking how excel lent he felt; never before in 15 years, and remarked. "Well, sir, I am going in business right here, and camp here the remainder of my days." He little suspected the truth ' of his remarks. Being a member of the K. of; P. order he died not among strangers but among friends and brethren. His wife was . telegraphed in Kansas City and the remains were sent East today for burial, accompanied by two members of the order hero. The course of human life is much like our present financial distur bances, hard to prophesy one day in advance. . Last week I was in tho Auburn placer mining' district. Tho old diggings are being, worked over again, and some men are doing first rate, but water is scarce. I saw the remains of the "61d log hufc ejected by .Geo. Griffin at the h'ktt ,of a gulch of the same name. ;Mr, Griffin: was with a party of emigrants crossing the mountains to reach the Willamette valley in the fall, of 1861 and by. accident discovered a: nugget of gold, which was the beginning of mining east of the Cascades. At one time Au- rburn, district contained over 25,000 souls And a town by tho name of (Auburrj, the land marks of which in the, shape of large, canal pipe linesand tumbled down houses &tUTexist, contained a population -I'iPOO. When the country was pretty Well .worked out, the Flor ence, Idaho, excitement broke out and a'Mneral stampede was made to th$ iew strike. Geo. Griffin was made immensely rich by hiB discovery. Ho "grub staked" thousands of men, " and al lowed no man to want. Ho was Tdnd and charitable, but died a pauper and the cost of his funeral and burial was defrayed by sub scription by those to whom he had been a benefactor in former days. But few of these earliest pioneers live here now. They have either joined the silent majority, or are living in some secluded place, do lighting in telling of the "good old days when Auburn was a boomin; when coffeo, sugar, rice and such luxuries wero worth a dollar per pound, ' and bacon scarcer than gold dust". Once in a while I come across some of these old fellows. ihey still cling to the miner s habit? cannot 'give it u3.' Mining is something fascinating. For who stays with it any length of time will ever he content engaged at anything else, I have been pretty much all over Baker county, in the various' mining districts and to say that I have been interested would be expressing it mildly. Tho world -Jittle dreams what wealth there igMn the minerals existing in this section, and it will not be many -years, I again say until there .will be a home market here for a good portion of the products of Umatilla and neighboring counties.; .

There: was a semi-official state ment given to the press saying that Siam's acceptance gives com plete satisfaction to France' and all who are desirous of making Siam ese difficulty j fche occasion of a fresh colonial enterprise. ' Tho statement adds: "The French government,' desiring to give proof of its good will to Siam, probably will not raise further objections in the matter."- Another semi-official statemont says the republic will find proof that Great Britain has intervened. Tho journal accep ts the statement with a grain of al lowance. - It says that, something has been done behind , the scenes that the French aro likely to awake soon to the fact that Great Britain after all got the better of them in the diplomatic negotiations. Portland Banks Olosed. . . Three Portland banks failed to ' open their doors "Saturday. They were the commercial National, the Portland Saving? and ; the Ains worth INational. With, the ex ception of a slight i run on the " First. National there-? was .no ex citement.

The state ment of this bank shows resources estimated at $1,950,000, which is considered a conservative estimate, Its liabilities are placed at $1,475, 000. During the last sixty days there has been a shrinkage of $000, 000, while $900,000 has been with drawn froni the Commercial Na tional ! during tho same period. , The commercial National paid out $100,000 yesterday. A small bank at-Forest Grove Ms closed owing to the (Commercial National suspension." The statement of tho Union Banking Company, which closed yesterday, assets of $98,000 liabilities of $53,000. The city has a claim bf $13,000 and is tho principal creditor. A Pacrot-Bill Salmon Our fishermen, says the Illvvaco Journal, have caught several speci mens of a new species of salmon during the last two weeks. From ', its head to the tip of its tail it has every i appearance of a steelhead, the only difference lying in the ' formation of its mouth. ' The low er part extends -fully two inches farther than the upper, which has. the appearance of a parrot's beak, only instead , of , overlapping the under iaw it Ig shorter, and blunt instead of pointed. No one seems " to remember having seen any liko ' it before, and tho fact, that several of them liave been caught dispels the idea that it is a deformed fish.
