Createst fleet of Modern Warsbips tver Assembled Under
TUe American fld.
(Scrlppa News Association)
Oyster Bay. L. I.. September 4,
President Roosevelt. Secretary of the
Navy Bonaparte and Assistant Secretary
of the Navy Newberry this forenoon
reviewd the greatest fleet of modern
warships over assembled under the
American flag. It was a grand and
glorious spectacle, never to be forgotten
by those who were fortunate enough to
witness it The entire fleet consisted of
45 vessels, including twelve magnificent
battleships, with a total of 1,178 guns.
816 officers and 16,235 men. It was
the strongest fleet in toniiage and number
of guns ever assembled in American
Although eminently suited for a rend
ezous of a large fleet, the harbor of
Oystar Bay does not offer equally good
factilities for viewing such an event from
the shore. The greatest part of the shore
line is private property and inaccessible
and for that reason the thousand of
people who congregated here to witness
the grand spectacle, were crowded to
gether in the limited space to which they
could obtain access and many were sadly
The great fleet unaer the command of
Admiral Evans began to arrive early on
Sunday morning. The first squadron, in
cluding Admiral Evans' flagship the Maire
the Missouri, Kentucky and Kearsage in
the first division and the Louisana, Rhode
Island, New Jersey and Virginia in the
second division, steamed into the harbor
about half past nine o'clock. Quietly the
monster ships steamed to their respective
positions and cast their anchors. An hour
later they were followed by the second
squadron, under Rear Admiral J. H. Davis
and including the flagship Alabama, the
Illinois, the Indiana and the first and West
Virginia, Rear Admiral W. H. Brownson's
flagship, the Pennsylvania, the Colorado
and the Maryland in the second division.
Soon after these vessels had taken their
positions, third squadron arrived, includ
ing the Puritan, Nevada, Florida, Arkan
sas, Minneapolis, Tacoma, Cleveland, and
Denver. Last came the Torpedo boat
destryers, submarines and auxilanes and
the troopship Yankee, By noon all the
vessels were anchored in their respective
YOUNG BOY TRIED TO SUICIDE
A rather remarkable incident at The
Dalies is chronicled by the Chronicle as
One of the youngest would-be suicides
recorded is an 1 1-year-old Dalles boy
named Theodore Bredahl, son of John
Bredhal, who resides between Thirteenth
and fourteenth streets, on Taylor.
The father and mother of the lad have
been separated for some time, the father
caring for the boy who, it is claimed,
grew despondent and yesterday decided
to kill himself. Securing a quantitly of
strychnine last evening he poured water
on it and without waiting for the
substance to dissolve, drank the liquid.
Child-like, he immediately ran to his
father and told him that he wanted to
die and had drank the poison. It was
evidently not strong enough to produce
the desired effect; but a physician was
srumrmned and administered the necessary
antilote and the boy lives to tell the tale.
Strange that so youug a child has
found life such a burden that he would
be freed from it.
HELP YOUR SELF
When labor is scarce, wages are high.
Whether you are employed in the produc
tion of La Grande sugar or not, labor
that labor that it does employ, makes
less idle men in the valley. There is not
a man in Union County who will work,
that can't find plenty to do at good
wages and much of this condition is due
to the labor employed in the production
of the La Grande Sugar.
As a result. Jobs are plentiful and wages
are high for all classes of work. The
man who works can afford to be loyal
to his own interests and are home pro
ducts, whose production is largely respon
sible for the high standard of wages that
he is receiving the benefit of. La Grande
Sugar is made at home and Union County
labor is always given the preference in
its production. Ask your grocer for the
only sugar made in Oregon and take no

! Promptly ai nine o'clock this morning
every vessel began to put on "full dress"
and in short time strings of little flags ran
from mast to mast, from stern to bow of
every vessel. No visible signals were ex
changed. If any signals were given at
all, they were probably wireless messages.
Shortly before eleven o'clock President
Roosevelt, Secretary Boneparte and As
sistant Secretary Newberry boarded the
Mayflower and steamed to the head of
the first squadron, Admiral Evans.' flag
ships Maine and the review began.
The Mayflower passed along the south
side of the first squadron, which was
anchored next to the shore, then between
the torpedo ' boat flotilla. back
along the north Side of the second squad
ron! thence along the south side of the
torpedo craft, and back between the first
and second squadrons. Immediately after
the review the President visited the three
flagships and ,n each case he was saluted
by the guns of each of the three ships.
In all 1.745 shots were fired to salute
the President, ail of them six-pound guns.
President Roosevelt, Secretary Bona
parte. Assistant Secretary Newberry,
Admiral Evans and the commanders of
the squadron took luncheon on board the
Mayflower after the review. In the
afternoon the President will witness a
display cf marksmanship. He will board
the Maine and Missouri has been selected
for the exhibition of shooting. The Mis
souri holds the record for quick and ac
curate firing in che American fleet.
The targets will be placed at a distance
of 1.600 yards. George Phillppo. of
Chicago, who won the Missouri's distin
ction by driving ten shells from a twelve
inch gun into the target at a distance of
1 ,600 yards, wilt point the twelve inch
gun. J. S. Wierzbowski. another West
erner will point the six-inch rifle. He
holds the record for the fleet with the
six-inch gun. In the evening the whole
fleet will be brilliantly illuminated.
The West Virginia, Colorada, Penn
sylvaniv and Maryland which are under
orders to proceed to Asiatic waters to
relieve the Ohio and Wisconsin will start
on their long voyage tomorrow and will
not be seen on Alantic waters for severa
years to come. The squadron will be
under the command of Read Admiral
