In an In terview today, Governor G. C. Carter, of the Hawaiian islands, said to a rep resentative of (he Ike: "The annotation of the islands to the United States has not been a com mercial success, so far as the Islands are concerned. Since we have been United States terrltoiy we have not mada gieat progress. One reason for this Is because the laws by which we are governed are not suited to the countiy. For instance, we have to obey the United Suites law and cannot rut government laud for a period of more than five years at a time. As it takes from two to four years to raise a crop In our climate, we cannot find anybody that will rent land for such a shoit period as five years. Thus we are deprived of a big Income from gov ernment land. "riince we have liecn anneied con gress has never dredited our harbor, ft is filling up and thus prevents the lauding of tlio 'argest vesmda. As a result of this our t radio ia falling off. We have dredged the harbor at our ei penae since we have been annexed, but unleas it is dredged again we will lose much of our trade. "Annexation has cut off all of our Internal revenue. On the othei band, from Uncle Sam's point tf view, an nexation has been a decided success. Over M.2'10,000 has been paid Into the United States treasury from the is lands. The wlole cont of annexation was only M.000,000." TILL ALL ORDERS. Chicago Packers Say Plants are Doing Well. Chicago, Aug. 6.

The state de partment is in telegraphic communica tion with its agencies abroad tespecting the Russian seixures and destruction of American goods, but it is not yet ready to define precisely ita position as to the w hole subject of seixures.

FORESTS BURN Great Damage Throughout Montana by Tire. IDAHO TIMBER SITTERS ALSO Homes of Settlers Destroyed and and Many People Have Narrow Escapes With Their Lives. Butte, Mont., Aug. 8. A Kalixpell special to the Miner says: Forest fires aie still raging with unabaUd fury In the timber lands of this county and from all reports received thua fai, the damage will run Into the thousands of dollars. Small bolder of timber lands are the chief sufferers. They are not obly losing their timber but their cab ins and home buildings ar well as their stock of provisions, hay and grain are being rapidly consumed. Their condi tion In many Instances will be deplora ble. The fires are not only confined to the forests surrounding this city, but the finest lumber sections In Northern Montana are suffering. The thickly wooded sections about Sterling, Atlanta and Fisher river are burning, as well as the timber west of Libby and be tween Troy and Bonn em Ferry, Idaho. About half a dozen frame buildings on the outskirts of White Fish have been burned. Several buildings be longing to a rancher named Hoffman near by also have been destroyed. The sawmill of Baker Bros., was burned. The people living in the timbered sec tions are all fighting the fire, but are almost powerless to check its advances. Much hay between White Fish and Columbia Falls has been burned, as well as all meadow land in the section where the fires are raging. Fires raging in North Fork of Flat head river country are doing much damage to the timbei in the Flathead forest reservation, and people returning from that section report that the dis tance around the fires at that point at present exceeds 15 miles. A White Fish report says4he timber is on fire on both sides of the county wagon rad and It was with difficulty a couriei was able to urge bis horses through, having a narrow escape from the fiie. The roads are now said to be utterly Impassable. The fire at Belton was extinguished this week after it bad done gieat dam age to the timber, but at Coiam and in that vicinity it is still eating Its way lli.Mnh vy to. . . A forest fiie in the Crasy mountains, 20 miles north of Big Timber has done considerable damage in the last few days. The fire started Sunday and has gradually increased until it haa burned over a large stretch of heavily wooded country. Among the timber burned is some of the most valuable in that listrict. MONTANA NEEDS MOISTURE. Unless Rain Soon Comes, Loss of Stock Will Be Great. Butte, Mont., Aug. 8. Advices re ceived fiom throughout the state the past week depict a sericus state of affairs on the big ranges in Eastern and Northern Montana, and unless heavy rain la soon lortncoming considerable loss of stock will ensue, rue bortbern Mnntana ranees in manv localities re semble a desert, former watering holes and springs being dry and patched. Mnnv oi the ranges have had to be abandoned and the stock driven long distances lor water, bo bad nave tne conditions become that the state hu mane officers have interfered and com pelled stockmen to drive herds into lo calities far removed, where some grass and water still remain, though even then tne supply is scanty. Stock shipments have been almost entire! v suaoended as a result of the strike of the packing bouse employes, and the thousands of head of cattle roaming the plains whicb could other wIba linvn lwwn Rhinnnd East make the problem of caring for the animals one of extreme seriousness. While the Eastern Montana ranges still bear con siderable grase, those in the Northern section of the Btate are in many in stances almost devoid of feed. No Word Trom Prisoners. London, Aug. 8. The correspon dent of the llra s at Tokio sftys that much indignation is felt there because of Russia's persistent refusal to com ply with the rules of The Hague con vtntion in supplying information re garding prisoneis.

Hope Incident Is Ended. St. Petersburg, Aug. 8. The an nouncement in the dispatcheB of the Associated Press from Vladivostok that the steamei Arabia will be released, and that only a portion of her cargo consigned to Japanese poits will be held, will, it is believed, end the Arabia incident, so far as the United States Is concerned, as the United States asked nothing more than prompt action for tbe immediate release of the ship. forest Fires In Montana. Butte, Mont., Aug. 8. The Miner advices from Missoula state that infor mation has been receved there that two big forest fires are raging in the vicini ty of Heron and Vermillion, on Cherry creek, one of the most thickly wooded sections in Missoula county. PORTS HOLD OUT. Charging Japanese Driven Back at Porl Arthur. Chefoo, Aug. 4. A desperate three days' assault on the kmer defenses, on the northern and eastern sides of Port Arthur, has failed, according to advices brought by two junks which arrived here today. A Russian w bo escaped from Port Arthur via Pigeon Bay, the night of July 29, states that the earth trembled under the terrific cannonading which begsn at 4 a. m., July 20, and ended during tbe night of July 28, when tbe the battle ceased. A Chine who baa arrived beie on a separate junk confirms the Rusalan's statement that the Russian killed and wounded during the assault numbered between 6,000 and 0.000. The Japanese in their repeated as raulta against the eastern forts on the hills, .hrougb barbed wire entangle ments and over mines, displayed fanati cal bravery. They were mowed down by the bail of shells and bullets and the explosion of mines under their feet. Their losses are estimated at 20,000. The Russian declares that tbe Rus sians held all the eastern forts leading to Golden Hill and that the Japanese. shattered and exhausted, retired to the eastward. As related by the paesengers of the two junks, the Japanese advance, w hich began from Kwokau lfore daybreak. July 26, was directed against Kikwan, Kinklun, Kinkishan and Pchoushan forts, lying near shore. The Russian outposts were driven back. In the meantime Admiral Togo shelled tbe forts at long range, but the return fire of the foita kept his ships at a aafe dis tance, rendering tbe co-operation of the fleet ineffective. On the morning of July 27, the Rus sian fiet steamed out, keeping under the protection of the Golden Hill guns. The Russian vessels did not fire on the Japanese and soon returned to their anchorage. ' Tlie assault on the northern side of the city occurred July 27. The Japan eae left at Heikau advanced on tbe Russians at -Hhinshi Ying, but were repulsed. The junks were within bearing dis tance for three daye after leaving, but no more firing watheard. The.Russian hospitals at Port Arthur are said to bo swamped. Thousands of wounded are lying in houses and shops of the Chinese, the owners having been evicted, with the exception of one who acts as caretaker of each place. Medical attention ia inadequate. TALE ONLY HALT TOLD. No Account Yet of the Battle That ' - Took Place August 2. St. Peteisburg, Aug. ' 4. Allowing for the inevitable conflict in names, the Japanese and Russian reports seem to agree on the main points of the mili tary developments up to August 1, but both stop short at their interesting point, namely, regarding what happen ed on August 2, w hen it is po6sible mat a ueciaive struggle was going on east and south of Liao Yang. The UDual crowds were assembled around the bulletin boards outside tbe office of the genera staff until long after midnight awaiting further official details, but nothing was given out be yond General kuropatkin's two official dispatches. It is evident from these dispatches and the Japanese reports that the Russians abandoned langse Pass, falling back on Liandinsin, a strong defensive position - in the hills 24 miles southeast of Liao Yang. General Kuropatkin admits that there were heavy losses along tbe baimtsze-Liao xang road July 31. The official account ia somewhat incon clusive, but indicates that although the Russians withdrew from their ad vanced posts Kuropatkin hoped to be able to hold his main posistions even in the face of the superior Japanese force and that he evidently expected heavy fighting along this line, probably about Anping. This battle possibly was proceeding August 2, although tbe dispatches leport that all was quiet up to noon of August 1. In the meantime a serious envelop ing movement of the Japanese divis ions was maturing around the Russian left at Haicheng where there was also heavy fighting July 31. No newa has been received from Port Atrhur. New Battleship's Speed. 'Washington, Aug. 4. Rear Admiral Whiting, who represented the govern ment aboard the battleship Ohio, which was given her preliminary speed trial in Santa Barbara channel yester day, reported to the navy department by telegraph today that tho uncorrected figures for the Ohio's trip showed an average Bpeed of 17.8 knots per hour. These figures are subject to change on account of tidal allowances Under the terms of the contract, the Ohio is to make 18 knots an hour. Situation, Serious at Tangier. Washington, Aug. 4. Acting Secre tary of State Loomis has received mail report from Mr. Gummere, the American consul-general at 1 anglers, dated July 15, showing a state of great unreBt and uneasiness in Morocco foi lowintr the Perdicaris incident. Mr. Gummere tells of the attempt to kid nap Mr. Harris, the representative of the London Times, which has been described in cable dispatches, and Bays the situation grows more serious daily.

Received by the State in Accordance With Recent Act of Congress. Salem The state land board haa re ceived a patent from tbe United States government conveying to the state 19, 000 acres of lien land in accordance with the act passed by' the last session of congress. This land waa selected upon Klamath reserve base, made available by tbe readjustment of tbe boundaries of the reeeive. The selec tions were made in 1901, but there was some question in the department as to whether the state waa entitled to cse school sections within the new boun daries aa base. The question was set tled in Apnl last by the passage of an act of congress directing that the state's selections be allowed, and the issuance of the patent is the formal compliance with that act.

The Rock Island passenger train, which left El Paso Saturday morning, north-bound, was beld np Saturday night at 11 o clock at Logan, M., a station SO miles north of Tucumcari and 99 miles north of 8an?a Rosa, the division point. Seven masked robbers boarded the train iust aa it waa leaving Logan, uncoupled tha baggage and express cars and went on with the engine. Conductor John Yerk resisted and waa shot in the leg. The engine waa run ahead a short distance, when it waa stopped and dynamite applied. The small safe was placed on top of the large one and then the charge was fired, but the only effect was to blow the small safe through the roof of tha car, the larger one nof being injured. Ibe smallet sate was replaced and the second charge of dynamite put be tween the two safes with the same re sult, except that the small safe this time was blown through the side of the car. The robbers then mounted their horses and rode away in the darkneea. Officers were advised this morning of the boid-up and are on the trail of tha men who are believed to be the "Evans gang." The passengers were not molested by the robbers, and many did not know the robbery was in progress, aa most of them were asleep. Owing to tbe re moteness of Logan, the details of tha hold-up were not obtained until to night, when a south-bound Rock Island passenger train arrived here. The Wells Fargo officials say there was only 4 7 in the safe when it left here. " TO BRING MINERS BACK. Western Federation Is Working for Cripple Creek Deportees. Denver, Aug. 3. Attorneys II. N.
