Panama, Nov. 5. The independence of the Isthmus was proclaimed at 6 p. m. today. A large and enthusiastic crowd of all political parties assem bled and marched to the headquarters of the government troops, where Gen eral Tovar and General Amaya, who arrived this morning, were imprisoned in the name of the Republic of Panama. The enthusiasm was immense, and at least 3000 of the men in the gathering were armed. The battalion of Colombian troops at Panama favors the movement, which is also thought to meet with the ap proval of at least two of the govern ment transports now here. The seeming inacivlty on the part or the government In not preparing some defense when rumors of the uprising became rife are looked upon as show ing confidence in the reports made by General Obaldia, the governor of the department of Panama, who issued a manifesto thanking all political parties for the adhesion promised to the gov ernment when it was reported a heavy force was marching in the vicinity of Penomeme. The Btreets of Colon today present ed somewhat the same appearance as during the days of the revolution. Several hundred troops, who arrived today from Savanilla on the Colombian gunboat Cartagena, with their wives, are squatted on the street 'corners. The battalion consists of 450 soldiers, all well supplied with ammunition, un der the command of General Lovar, who left for Panama todcy, but the troops still remain here. SUBMERGED WRECK, Found In Twenty-Five Fathoms of Water la Barclay Sounu. Victoria, B. C, Nov. 5.-A report has been made to Captain Gaudin, Agent of Marine, that a submerged wreck, seemingly of an Iron vessel, has been found lying in 25 fathoms of water off Amphritite Point, Barclay Sound. Fishermen have come in contact with the wreck when trolling and the fact that their lines, when cleared, showed rust and iron stains, indicates the pos sibility of it being an iron vessel. The vessel is five miles from shore. Captain Gaudirl has communicated with Admiral Bickford, commanding the station, Intimating a possibility of the wreck being that of the British warship Condor, which foundered In December two years ago. Wreckage from the Condor was found by search ing vessels in that vicinity, but there is nothing to Indicate that it is that lost warship, for many wrecks have occurred near by within the past year. dive Up Indian Hunt. Douglas, Wyo., Nov. 5 John Mbrton, a member of the Douglas posse, says the Indians who shot Sheriff Miller and a deputy In bloody battle Sat urday have separated, and each par ty is taking a different trail. The posse wag unable to follow the lead, and the pursuit was temporarily aban doned. It is the opinion of many of the officers that the redskins cannot be caught until they return to the res ervation, and as fast as they come into the Pine Ridge agency they will be taken into custody. Fire Causes Million Less. Albany, N. V.. Nov. 5. Fire which started tonight on the Citizens' steam boat pier at Troy raged for two hours before it was under control, and de stroyed several large buildings on River street between Broadway and Second streets.

No loss of life or Injuries to persons are reported. Russia Sees Peace at Hand. Paris. Nov. 5. M.

A solu tion of problems that have been put iling the two countries, the secretary says. Is near at hand. HAPPENINGS HERE IN OREGON HOLD ON TO YOUR PRUNES. Advice Qivea to Growers by ex-Commis sioner Reynolds. Salem "Prunegrowers who have not already sold their fruit should hold It for a price that will give them a fair profit," says Lloyd T. Reynolds, for merly horticultural commissioner for the second district. "Dealers are around offering to pay a basis price or 1 cents. Probably a majority of the prune crop this year will average in the 50-60 to-tbe-pound je, and at this buXis -growers would get only 3 cents a pound tor their fruit. Since the cost of labor and fuel has advanced, 3 cents a pound is about the actual-cost of production. Growers are cutting their own throats when they sell at such figures. "The condition of the fruit market does not warrant such low prices. France had a very short crop and is buying prunes heavily in this country The dispatches from New York tell us that the packing houses in this country hav had difficulty in filling the orders as fast as they are received. The apple crop of the United States is 1,000, 000 barrels short and prices for that fruit will be high. Canned goods have advanced very materially. In every view of the situation I can see no rea on why prunegrowers should not re ceive a fair price, if they will ask for it. "It seems to me to be certain that all the prunes will be wanted and the proper course for the growers is to wait until a living price is offered. do not advise holding for speculative prices, but for a living price. Oregon prunes this year are of first-class quali ty and they glee satisfaction wherever sold. LIEU L4ND REJECTIONS LAROE Land Agent West Puts Records In Order and Oothers Figures. Salem State Land Agent Oswald West has just completed the classifi cation and filing of the correspond ence and papers relating to state lieu land selections in Oregon. Hereto fore the records have been in confus ion and one seeking information re garding any particular selection, would have difficulty in finding it. Now the records are arranged so that any desired information may be had at a moment's notice. The list shows that the lieu land selections upon min eral base, which have been passed upon by the Federal Land Depart ment within the past yt'iir or two ag gregate 74,000 acres, of which about i.OOO acres have been clear listed and about 70.000 has either been rejected or is still pending with the outlook poor, for its approval. Pendleton Owns Its First Park. Pendleton Pendleton is now the owner of a city park. For years such a move has been agitated, but nothing was done until a week or so ago, when the council bargained for the property In the east part of the city, where the water supply is secured. The money has been paid over and the deeds filed. The land was purchased from Jessie S. Vert, consisting of one en tire block, and for which she received $1500, and four lots from V. Stroble. The city purchased this property to prevent buildings from being erected there. Release of 171 Mortgages. Pendleton The Pendleton savings bank has filed with the county record er releases- of 171 mortgages. This is the biggest bunch of mortgages that has ever been paid off at one time for a number of years. The banking com pany held these mortgages, ' principal ly against farmers, sheep and cattle men.

Manager Charles Pierce reports that during the four months' run the plant has canned 15 tons of Bartlett pears, 21 tons of peaches, 10 tons of string beans and seven tons of blackberries. Wood $7 a Cord. Pendleton There is a scarcity of wood in Pendleton. This is due to the lack of cars to bring it from the Blue Mountains, from where Pendleton gets her supply. There seems to be plenty of wood at the belt. Prices are excep tionally high. Fir Is selling at $7 per cord and pine at $6.50. This price is nearly $1 higher than last year. Coal i selling at $S per ton. Sale of Great Timber Tract. Astoria A deed has been filed for record whereby the Oregon ft Mon tana Lumber Company, of Helena. Mont, sells to Samuel McClure. of Stillwater, Wash., 1566.29 acres of timber lahd In the Lewis and Clark district. The consideration named is $1000, but It is supposed a much high er price was paid. Vacancies in Legislature. Salem Not only will a special ses sion of the legislature be necessary to cure the defect In the taxation law. but a special election wi!l be neces sary to fill several vacancies In the legislature. The vacancies must be filled before the session Is held, ac cording to the language of the consti tution. ' WILL MANUFACTURE STAVES. Houlton Will Have a Plant That Will Em ploy 100 Men. St. Helens It is now a settled fact that the Western Cooperage Company, composed of Kentucky capitalists, will build a large stave factory at Houlton, on the Northern Pacific rail road, just on the outer edge of the cor porate limits of St. Helens,. A dozen men are already at work getting camps ready in the woods, where the bolts for the staveg will be cut up and split into the usual size. " A factory Bite has been purchased from W. H.

The plant will have a daily capacity of 50,000 feet of lum ber to begin with, and will be ready for operation within 30 days. A flume will be put in from the mill to carry the product direct to the Southern Pa cific railroad track at Drain, where a lumber yard will also be established. Looking- for Reservoir Rites. Ashland H. E. Green and J. E. Reese, of the hydrographic branch of the United States Geological Survey, arrived in Ashland -last night from San Francisco.

In the Sugar Beet Fields. La Grande The sugar beet factory lere has already this season received 10,000 tons of beets, and has worked over 7000 tons, which means 16.000 sacks of sugar. It is expected that about 1000 tons more of beets will bf received by the factory this season, and that the run will continue until about November 10. So far the beet harvest has proved a success. Al though there was a shortage in the crop, the sugar material in the beet was heavier than last year. October Asylum Report. Salem The report of Superintend ent J. F.

The Chinese gov ernment is greatly disturbed at the reoccupatlon of Mukden th rnnittl of Manchuria, by Russian troops. The toreigu omce is appealing to rriendly foreign legations for help and advice, admitting its own helDlessness In the matter. The- communication relating to Muk den is as follows: "The Russians pmnlnverl a nnl.l brigand, who was accused of mauy crimes against the Chinese, as chief of one of the irregular bands of po lice that are organizing in Manchur- ia. The authorities repeatedly re quested the surrender of this man, and the Russians recently consents 1 to give nim up. - "Thereupon a Chinese officer decan itated the brlcand without Elvine him a trial. When this became known. the Russians demnndeH thp pvorntlnn of this officer within five days, giving! as an alternative the seizure of Muk den. "The Chinese foreien nffiVp was -m gotiating with Paul Lessar, the Rus sian Minister, on the matter, and of fered to banish the officer, pleading tnat ne had exceeded his InRtmr-tlnnu and to remove the taotal, his super ior, from office. 'There was a misunderstanding- na to tne time limit set for these neeori ations. The Chinese thought it ex pired yesterday. Before the negoti ations were completed the news was received here that Russia had fni. filled her promise to reoccunv Muk den. NEXT STEP IN ALASKA CASE. .Negotiations Will Be Commenced for s Survey of the Boundary. Washington, Nov. 4. John W. Fos ter, agent for the United States befon? the Alaskan Boundary Commission lias arrived in Washington, bringing the official text of the commission'? findings and all the records of the American case. General Foster had an interview with Secretary Hay iu turther explanation of the actual re sults obtained in London and later in the day dined with the President. Upon the delivery of the findings together with General Foster's own re port within a few days, Secretary Hay win enter Into negotiations with the British Government for the appoint ment of expert surveyors to mark the lines of the boundary as they have been described by the commission. The findings of the commission, as they will be deposited in the state de partment, bear the signature of the American commissioners, Lord Alver- stone and the American Secretary. Contrary to the common impression Canadian charts will be used as a basis of the survey work. It appears iiccording to General Foster, that the Canadians spent an enormoiiB sum of money in the preparation of th'elr case and the work of their cartographers being very Much more extensive and elaborate than that produced as part of the American case, was accepted bj the commission as the standard. CROW OUTBREAK. Indians and Posse Engage In Battle In Wyoming. Cheyenne, Wyo., Nov. 4.
