"Quil is a great joker, and so is Judge Powers. I suppose tho only thing I can do is to wait my opportunity to got a good joke on them. If any one takes the action seriously or pretends that It will avail Judge Powers anything In the way of furnishing him a credential for the United States Senate, he can see farther than I can. If I had made the appoint ment myself, the Senate would not-seat tho appointee. That was settled In the uaycase. You ask 'me what I will J do In-tho matter. CI suppose when I see' the President of the Senate I' will laugh, t think .Qull expects. that." Judgo Powers, when interviewed and asked whether his' appointment as United States Senator was Intended as a huge practical joke, or was to be taken In seriousness, replied emphatically that it was serious In every sense of the word and caloulated to teach tho .Governor and Secretary of State that they could not both'leave Utah at the same time with out taking the consequences.

OF OFFICE. ft K S- 4 1 i 1 ORIENT AND AFRICA Portland Gaining Prestige in the Export Trade. IMPROVED SHIPPING FACILITIES Monmonthshire CoralnE? Baclc t Portland Steamship Eva Arrives for a Biff Carffo'of Flour.. Pending the establishment of tho new Oriental line by the O. R. & N. Co., tho Port of Portland will be afforded better transportation facilities than, she has en Joyed for many months. These facilities will be sufficient to bring- the flour ship ments for this month, up to the largest on record. The announcement, made, about 10 days ago. that steamers had, already been secured to follow those of the Dodwell line, and that one of them, the Skarpsno, was already loading- at Hong Kong, relieved any anxiety that might hae been felt by the discontinu ance of the old line, and yesterday tho name of the second steamer was given, out. This vessel Is the old reliable Mon mouthshire, the fastest and best equipped steamship that we have yet had on tho route. The Monmouthshire has been in tho Portland-Oriental service for the paat four year3, and has never tnado a slow passage and never turned out a cargo In bad shape. The steamer sailed from this f port about 10 days ago, and as soon as she reaches Hong Kong will load bacic for this port, with a full cargo of Orien tal merchandise. T. M. Stevens & Co., who are supplying the cargo for tho Scarpsno, will load the Monmouthshire, on her outward trip from Portland. Oth er steamers have been secured to follow these vessels, and their names will ba announced later. The Portland Flouring Mills Company, which has sent out a great many record breaking cargoes for the far East, will continue In the same line of business, with Independent steamers looking after their business unUl the new line Is es tablished. The German ship Eva arrived In port last evening, and will commence loading' at the Alblna Hour mills thl3 morning. Her cargo, while not, a record breaker, will be very close to 50,000 bar rels, an amount that has not often been exceeded at a Pacific Coast port. Tho" Eva's cargo will go to Hong Kong and Vladlvostock. while that of the Skarpsno, which will follow her. will go to Japan, and Chinese ports. The Norwegian steamship Tyr crossed out from Astoria yesterday morning for Vladlvostock. di rect, with nearly 30,000 barrels of flour, and will bo followed in. about 30 days by another steamer for the same port The flour business with the Orient was built up by a Portland firm, and this port has never been permitted to lose, her f grip, ou that field, and now, with addi tional transportation facilities oirerea, a heavy Increase in the business Is bound to-follow. The- "overflow.'" which In thb past has supplied considerable business for the Puget Sound 'and San Francisco lines, will no longer seek space on steam ers running from these ports, but enough vessels will bo provided to take care oC all of the business that Is offering. Increased Oriental and Siberian busi ness is not the only pleasing feature of the export business at present, for the South African grain trade with Paclflo Coast ports, which vanished with tho commencement of hostilities In the Dark Continent Is again showing signs of re turning life, and the first cargo of wheat for the Cape of Good Hope for the pres ent season Is now loading In this city. The vessel which will pioneer the African fleet this year Is the Italian ship EHsa, which is now loading at G. W. McNear's Irving dock. The ElK-v will go to Algoa Bay for orders, and will carry about 2000 tons of choice bluestem wheat put up in large bags. Over six months has elapsed since tho last vessel sailed from Portland for Afri ca, the County of Merioneth sailing: March 1 for Cape Town. She was pre ceded last season by six other vessels the Vera lean, for Cape Town: Macduff nnd Blythswood. for Algoa. Bav; Powys Castle, for Port Natal, and Lorton, for Durban, Now. that the war Is nearlng an end. and business is again possible, Portland will profit by the start already made by our exporters jn that field. JIM HOWARD'S MOUSTACHE. The Important Part It Plays in tho Frankfort Trial. FRANKFORT, Kv.. Sept! 20. "Did Jim Howard have a moustache January 30?" On that question In a great measure def pends his liberty, perhaps his life. The witnesses for the defense, including the defendant himself, all state that January 29 his faco was clean-shaven. Bowman Gaines, Ben Rake and James F. Dally, who have identified Howard as the mah, they saw January 30, swear that ho had a moustache "There goes Jim Howard, clean-shaven and better dressed than any man In town: If he keeps on that way we will never be able to provp that he Is a fool." According to this testimony today. ex State Senator Ed Parker made that re mark In London January 20. where he saw Howard on the streets, Parker ex plained that tho reason he had said thla was that Howard was then at London to appear for trial for the murder of George Bauer, and his plea was to be Insanity. The defence Is resting Its case on tho alibi claimed for Howard, and Is not paying any attention to the claim of tha prosecution that the shot came from tho Secretary of State's office and other col lateral matters which figured largely In, the trial of Caleb Powers. POPULATION BY STATES. First Announcement Will Be Made hy the Censns Bnrean Next Weelc. WASHINGTON, Sept. 20. Director of the Census Merlam said today that tho announcement of the population of large cities is practically completed, as no bul letin will be Issued for a town under 25. 005. The bureau, ho said, probably will begin next week announcing the popula tion of the states. The first will be Arkansas and thereafter they will be Is sued In alphabetical order, beginning with Alabama. It Is thought that all oC the states will be given out before Con gress assembles. The returns from the several states will also show the popula tion of cities under 25,000. Jndgre J. M. Bonner Dead. LOS ANGELES, Cal... Sept 20.-Judge J. M.
