NEW YORK, Nov. 20. Heavy winds
and rough seas on the Atlantic are un
doubtedly the cause of the delay of a
fleet of Transatlantic liners due here from
different European ports. Among the
vessels are the North German Lloyd flyer.

NINE THOUSAND TONNERS
O. R. & N. Co. Makes Good
WILL OPERATE FOUR VESSELS
Indrapura and Indravelll, Large,
Modern-Built Craft, Will Pioneer
the Fleet Heavy Business.
The O. B, & N. has secured for the
Oriental line out of Portland, two of
the largest steamships which have yet
been operated In the Pacific Coast trad
to the far East. Negotiations have been
under way for several months, but not
until yesterday were the details per
fected eo that public announcement of
the names of the first of the liners could
be, made. The vessels which have been
secured are the British steamships In
dravelli and Indrapura, and two other
similar-sized ships are now being nego
tiated for and will ba secured In time
to take their place in the regular service.
The Indrapura and the Indravelll are
twins. Both were launohed at the yards
of C. Connell & Co., at Glasgow, in 1897,
and their dimensions are exactly the
same. The only difference Is that the
Indravelll has a cubic carrying capacity
of 9700 tons, and the Indrapura of 96S3
tons. They are each 400 feet long, 49.2
feet beam, and 28.3 feet depth of hold, and
of 4S99 tons gross tonnage. Their dead
weight carrylpg capacity, which is slight
ly smaller than the cubic carrying ca
pacity, is 7500 tons of cargo, and 1200 tons
of bunker coal. They are modern "built
in every respect and are rated 100 Al in
"While these mammoth steamers are in
tended principally for the freight bus-
.speedi Their englnesare of the triple
expansion type with" cylinders 28-44 and
73 Inches diameter of cylinder with 48
Inch stroke. They have bunker capacity
for 13)0 tons of coal, but as all of this will
not be needed on this route, some of the
space will be utilized for freight. These
big steamships will draw when fully
loaded 25 feet of water, and the O. R. &
N. Co. has secured them because the busi
ness warranted the use of vessels of this
size, and because thy had faith in the
Port of Portland continuing the work
of Improvement, which has been so effec
tive In giving this city a fine channel to
the sea. President Mohler left for the
Bast Monday, and in discussing the mat
ter -before leaving, said:
"I have no apologies to offer for giv
ing Portland tho kind of Oriental steam
ship service which our new line will en
able us to give the port. "Wo were hand
icapped in a number of ways which pre
sented us securing the steamers at an
earlier date, but we did not care to dls-
cuss the matter through the public press."

BIG DAY FOR MILTON
Celebration of the Opening of
Its New Creamery.
IS THE FIRST IN EASTERN OREGON
Ushers in an Era of Good Times
Farmers' and Dairymen's Instl-
' tute Held in Connection.
MILTON, Or., Nov. 20. There was a
"coming-out party" here today for the
new creamery, and Milton made a sort of
a holiday of the occasion, because It
marked the establishment of the first co-
In. connection with the enterprise, a' farm
ers' and dairyman's Institute was held.
It will conclude its session tomorrow.
Such interest was felt in the creamery
and the Institute that the unusual sever
ity of November cold, a stiff north breeze
and four Inches of snow, did not keep
neighboring farmers from attendance.
The creamery is the pride of the town,
which feels that It has pioneered an In
dustry which promises for tho Columbia
River Basin what it has performed for
Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin. Its In
stallation was proposed three months ago
by Colonel R. C Judson, industrial agent
of the O. R. & N. Co , who Induced a
committee of citizens to visit Minnesota
and Investigate the business. As to the
result, let Professor "W. J. Splllman, pro
fessor of agriculture of the Washington
State Agricultural College and School of
Science, speak. In answering tho ad
dress, of welcome this morning, he said:
"This Is the best-built and best-equipped
creamery I have ever seen. It represents
the finest machinery and hlgnest skill de
veloped In the butter-making industry."
Professor Splllman's unqualified pralsa
came after he with other visitors had
seen a churning Just before the institute
Among those who fathered the. cream
ery, which Is strictly a home institution,
are: N. A. Davis, manager of the Bank
of Milton; O. R. Ballou, R. M. Dough
erty, H. L. Frazler and William Nichols,
all farmers, stockralsers and fruitmen.
The cost of the concern, including lot
and building, boiler and engine, the best,
up-to-date machinery and appliances, was
'$5000. Its chief merit oven the ordinary
erawavy Ilea In tho "rlponlns" vat. TaJ
is a contrivance) of'comparatively recent,
date, for "ripening" cream; that Is to say,
for putting It at the best temperature,
and In the most favorable conditions for
churning. Its action Is automatic, and
consists of running the cream, drop by
drop, over colls of pipe filled with water
at the requisite temperature.
The plant represents labor-saving feat
ures brought to the ultimate point, and
is operated by two men. Davis, who
takes great interest in the enterprise,
"I believe the founding of the Institu
tion portends a period of prosperly to this
part of the country. It will enable many
orchardlsts, who have found In the cul
ture of fruit alone, smaller financial re
sults than they had expected, to win not
only a comfortable income, but also to
maKo a saving each month under ordi
nary circumstances. Our plan is to allow
to each patron In proportion to the butter
fat furnished, the gross proceeds of 'all
sales, less the actual expense of running
Industrial Agent Judson says it will be
for any other city or town on its fine
which wishes to consider the matter.
When at 10 A. M. the Institute met at
the opera-house, Hon. E. L. Smith, of
Hood River, president of the State Board
of Horticulture, was elected president,
and Professor H. T. French, professor
of agriculture In the University of Idaho,
Secretary. Governor Geer sent a message
expressing regret that he could not at
tend and proffering his best wlBhes. Pro
fessor E. P. Greene, business manager of
Columbia College, made an address of
welcome and referred to Milton as a town
that ever wjelcomed good things, and
never permitted the bad. Professor Spill
man responded, paying a tribute to the
art of agriculture, and felicitating Milton
on the establishment of of such an Im
portant enterprise under such favorable
C. L. Smith, of Minnesota, who for 20
years has been engaged In creameries and
has served as teacher, writer and state
ofilcer, spoke on "What Dairying Has
Done for Minnesota." He devoted him
self to facts and eschewed theories. He
declared that the co-operative creamery
did three things brought about better
roads, forced farmers and dairymen who
met every day at the creamery to confer
among themselves concerning their com
mon purpose, always with good results,
and created Independence by putting Into
men's hands every month the cash for
store bills. He emphasized the 'fact that
the skim milk from one good cow will
feed eight pigs and a calf. He asserted,
as an uncontrovertible fact, that $420 a J
year received in cash in monthly pay
ments brought more comfort, and went
further In an average American family
than 600 received In a lump after harvest.
Concluding, he summed up what dairy
ing had done in Minnesota. In part, he
'It brought us out of conditions unsat
isfactory Into conditions wholly satisfac
tory, from poverty to prosperity, from
being borrowers of money to being lend
ers of money; it gave us better homes,
better schools, better churches, better
roads, better social and moral con
In the afternoon Professor Splllman
spoke of "Dairy Cattle and Their Food."
Ho told In a practical way and in simple
language, the good points to bo observed
in selecting a dairy cow. and explained
clearly the difference between food that
made beef and that which made milk.
Professor French told how to build a
silo. He had blackboard illustrations,
which, taken with hls-lucld explanations,
conveyed information that will enable
those who heard him to build the best
form of silos.
Jn the evening J. W. Bailey, State Dairy
and Food Commissioner, spoke on "Dairy
ing in Oregon." He stated that, whereas
one year ago, the Willamette Valley was
Importing butter, it is now exporting.
Since January 1 the exportations had ex
ceeded '1,000,000 pounds, sold at an average
of 20 cents a pound. He had every rea
son to believe that the Willamette Valley
would .furnish most of the butter which
In future will go to Alaska. The South
ern Pacific Company had taken hold of
the creamery proposition in earnest, and
pursued a broad and liberal policy toward
the dairying industry.
C. D. Smith spoke again, this time on
"Homemaklng." He counseled the farmer
to produce everything he could, soil and
climate considered, that will add to the
comfort and happiness of his family. He
should employ sunshine, grass, trees and
flowers to make his home beautiful and
attractive. As far as his means shall al
low he should measure the labor cost of
everything sold from the farm in order
to determine whether he can buy back
comforts for the home sufilcient to repay
the cost of production. Mr. Smith said
if he bad the making Of marriage laws,
he Bhould Insist on refusing a license for

CHANGE IN WAR M
Secretary Gage Suggests Re
duction of $30,000,000:
MEETING OF HOUSE COMMITTEE,
Tariff on Tea Will Not Be Removed-
Conveyance and Proprietary
WASHINGTON, Nov. 20. The Repub
llean members of the ways and means
committee met today to consider admeas
ure for the reduction cf the war revenue
tax. Thb most important action taken
was a decision not to remove the tax of
10 cents a pound on tea. The committer
will not take up or disturb the tarlffou
imports, as the members claim It would
open up the whole subject of tariff re
vision. The committee will not grant any hear
ings while framing the bill, as full hear
ings were given in the last session of
Congress, and since then briefs and state
ments of various Interests have been re
ceived. Persons who are Interested can
file briefs or statements with the com
mittee. Secretary Gage and Commissioner Wil
son, of tho Internal Revenue Bureau,
were before the committee for some time
during the afternoon. Tho Secretary told
the committee that In his opinion there
might be a reduction In revenue of $30,
000,000. The war revenue act now raises
about $100,000,000. Commissioner Wilson
went over the schedules with the mem
bers of the committee, and both he ana
Secretary Gage were questioned as to
"Where reductions could be made to tho
best advantage from the Treasury view
point. Much of the discussion was centered In
schedule B. which taxes medicinal and
proprietary articles and preparations, per
fumery, cosmetics, chewing gum, wines,
etc There was also discussion of tho
stamp taxes. The discussion Indicated
that the committee favored quite a
-change In this feature of the law, ana
reductions wherever possible.
The committee also desires to eliminate
the taxes on conveyances, of which thero
has been a great deal of complaint. , It
can be stated that It will be the aim. of
the committee to abolish the most bur
densome taxes and to grant relief from
stamp taxes as far as possible.
The committee, late In the day, called
on the President to obtain his views on
the proposed reduction.
The committee's conference with the
President lasted less than an hour. The
committee and the President agreed on
the desirability of tho reduction or aboli
tion of the war taxes where they hava
proved annoying and Irritating to Inter
ests Involved and have not produced much
revenue The President believes the sur
plus In the Treasury Is accumulating too
rapidly, and that conservative reductions
may be made safely or the taxes entirely
removed In some Instances. The Repub
lican" "members believe they will bo abta
After there has been a general Inter
change of opinion on the proposed reduc
tion. It Is quite likely that a subcommit
tee will be" appointed to draft a measure.
It Is not believed that this can be pre
pared and ready for the full committee
until the session begins. The measure,
after it is agreed upon by the Repub
licans, will be submitted to the Democrat
of the committee.
The suggestion has been made that thn
oleomargarine bill, now on the House cal
endar, and made a special order for De
cember 6, might be made a part of tha
war revenuo reduction bill. Representa
tive Tawney, the father of the oleomar
garine bill, when asked about this, said
that the oleomargarine bill will be passed
by the House early in the session, so thai
an opportunity will be given to ascertain
if there is a disposition to defeat tho
meauro by any unusual delay. In such
case, he Intimated the oleomargarine bill
might be made a part of the revenue re
duction bill in the Senate.
QUESTION OF REAPPOn.TIONME?nV
"So Effort Will Be Made io Decrease
WASHINGTON, Nov. 20. Representa
tive Hopkins, of Illinois, chairman of tho
House committee on census, which com
mittee will have charge of the legislation
affecting the apportionment of the House,
today expressed the opinion that thero
would be no decided effort in the next
session of Congress to decrease the Con
gresslonal representation of the South
ern States because of the disfranchise
ment of negroes. He said that in all
probability the subject would be dia
cussed, but he thought that, upon tho
whole, the committee would favor tho
plan of basing representation upon tho
number of Inhabitants. Discussing th
general subject of reapportionment, Mr.
Hopkins said: "
"The committee on census will meet the
first week of the session to frame a bill
providing for reapportionment. I think
that a proposition will be adopted which,
will Increase the present membership of
the House. It has been suggested that
we authorize one member for every 193,08
Inhabitants. That seems to be the ratio
that is in general favor among member
of the committee. This proposition would
entail an Increased membership of from
15 to 20 members.
"According to calculations I have made,
this reapportionment would add members
to the House from New Tork and Illinois,
and perhaps other states. States like Ne
braska and Maine might lose members
hby the proposed law. Some of the South
ern States might also suner rronr n
the proposition agreed upon, although to
what extent cannot now be ascertained."
Simon Gets Carter's Seat.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 20. In the next
Congress, Senator Simon Is to have a
very valuable seat, one In tho front row
to the left ofthe presiding officer, which
has been occupied by Senator Carter for
nearly four years. Simon guessed soma,
time ago that Carter would not be re
turned, and filed claim on the seat, which
will be his after March 4. It is an Inter
esting coincidence that one of the fltst
acts of Senator Simon in the Senate was
to call Carter down for unjust criticism
of Mr. Corbett in connection with tha
last Senatorial contest in Oregon.
Trest Companies Consolidate.
NEW YORK, Nov. 20. Tho trustees ot
the Atlantic Trust Company and the di
rectors of the Bankers' TrusJ Company,
at separate meetings, today decided- to
consolidate under the title and charter
of the Atlantic Trust Company. Tho con-,
solldation will become operative as soon
as the stockholders of both companies
ratify the action of tho directors. Tho
Atlantic Trust Company was organized
nearly 15 years ago, and it has at this
time a capital of $15,000,000 and 1600,009
surplus. The Bankers' Trust Company
was. formed a little more than a year ago.
