THE MOBBING OREGONIAN, THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 1901.
UNDER SIX FLAGS
Remarkable Fleet Left the
FIVE FOREIGN - BOUND SHIPS
.American, patch, German, Norwe
gian, British and French.- Marine
Represented Kalsow In the
River Leu Than Ten Dan.
It Is not an unusual occurrence for half
a dozen vessels to sail from the Columbia
or various parts of the world In a single
day, but yesterday' three sailers and three
steamers crossed out, and each one sailed
under a different flag. Five of the six
were mammoth deep-water craft, loaded
with -over 13,000 tons of Oregon wheat,
flour and lumber. This mixed fleet was
headed by the new steamer Geo. R.
Vosberg, which crossed out for the Ne
halem with Old Glory at the masthead.
Bha was followed by the Dutch bark Pax,
flour-laden for Europe, and 10 minutes be
hind the Pax was the German bark
Ellbek with a big cargo of wheat for
Queenstown or Falmouth for orders. The
Norwegian steamship Norman Isles
crossed out for Shanghai, with ono of the
mammoth cargoes of lumber that have
made Portland famous. Great Britain
was represented In the procession by
the China Mutual Steam Navigation Com
pany's big liner Kalsow, bound out for
St. Vincent for orders with 5400 tons of
wheat. Bringing up the rear of the pro
cession was the French bark Louis Pas.
teur, which also goes to Queenstown or
Falmouth for orders.
It was a remarkable sight, and one
that is seldom witnessed at a port on the
Pacific Coast. The departure of three of
the grain carriers left the lower harbor
with but half a dozen ships for a short
time. The Scottish Isles arrived down,
though, about the time the Louis Pasteur
sailed, so that there is another day's
work for the tugs and pilots before the
fleet will all be cleared up.
LESS THAN TEN DAYSr
Kalsovr Agraln at Sea After Very
Quick Dispatch From Portland.
The China Mutual Steam Navigation
Company's big liner Kalsow, drawing 25
feet of water and carrying over 5400 tons
of wheat,- crossed out from Astoria yes
terday afternoon, nine days and seven
hours after she entered the river. This
is the quickest dispatch that has been
given a grain vessel from this port for a
long time, and presents a pleasing con
trast to the manner In which business
is handled on Puget Sound. The steam
ship Hyson arrived on Puget Sound De
cember 14, about the time the Kalsow
sailed from Japan for Portland. It was
22 days after her arrival on the Sound
before she was ready to leave Tacoma,
with her cargo aboard, and, at last ad
vices, she was still at Port Townsend en
deavoring to find an anchor and chain.
The Tacoma Ledger admitted in a notice
of the Hyson leaving that port, that she
would not get away from Puget Sound
before Monday, and possibly not until
Making due allowance for the larger
cargo carried by the Hyson It Is ap
parent that sire received fully 13 days
slower dispatch from Puget Sound than
the Kalsow received from the Columbia
River. As her gross earnings for the
trip will be nearly J1000 per day, her own
ers will have an" excellent opportunity
of comparing the merits of the. two ports.
The Hysori was unable to get out of
Tacoma harbor without the aid of a tug,
and the Ledger of January 6 describes the
work of starting her as follows:
"One of the best feats In towing which
has ever been performed was that of Cap
tain T. S. Burley and the tug Fairfield
in taking the Hyson Into the stream yes
terday. Being 54-foot beam herself. It was
apparent that an expert would be re
quired to take out the steamer, which
drew 26 feet 9 Inches, In safety. A large
number of marine men watched tho Hyson
as she was taken out, and Captain Burley
was warmly praised for the easy way In
which the Fairfield took out the big
steamship without difficulty."
The Kalsow swung out Into the broad
and roomy Willamette without the aid
of. a tug or anything else except her own
engines, and went through to the coal
bunkers at Astoria wtlhout assistance
of any kind.

A signal message was received at 3
o'clock saying that up to that time not
one of the 102 persons on board the Russle
had perished. The Russle lies partly on
her beam ends, with her deck facing
southeast, and the sea, which has carried
away hor hatchways, filling the holds
and cabins with water. Every possible
expedient was tried from the shore to
nave the sufferers, but nothing seemed
effective. Late In the afternoon another
expedient was tried that of launching a
raft with a. life line from a tug lying
off the-wreck. The result of this at
tempt to reach the endangered crew and
passengers of the Russle Is not yet
known. The most hopeful news was re
ceived late this afternoon. It was to the
effect that the gale was subsiding.
COSTLY WATER FRONT FIRE.
Steamer Idlewlld Destroyed and
Other Vessels and Docks Damaged.
NEW YORK, Jan. 9. In an early
morning fire In the Erie Basin front that
lighted up South Brooklyn, Beard's ship
ping stores at the foot of Richards street
wore partly 'destroyed; an excursion
steamer, the Idlewlld, was burned to the
water's edge; one fireman was Injured,
anl close upon 50 seamen narrowly es
caped with their lives. The total loss Is
estimated at $500,000.
The lire started, no one knows how, on
board, the Idlewlld, about 1 o'clock. , The
steamer was lying Just inside the break
water, from which point she drifted, as
seon as she was cut loose, directly across
the Erie Basin, and up against one of
Board's pierheads. In a very short time
the big. covered pier, where Jute and
cotton were stored in bales, was In flames
from piling to roof.
. The Are department responded quickly.
The Brooklyn fireboats. the David Boody
ad the Seth Low, went to the fire and
found no room to work when the steam
ship Coya, which recently arrjyed from
Callao, was cut adrift from the burning
pier shed and worked outside Into the
basin. There her crew, having set the
pumps working, fought the flames with
the deck hose, and" before long had the
fire under control.
On the other side of the pier was lying
the tramp steamer St. Dunstan, from
Liverpool, with a cargo of fruit and
sugar. Her crew hurried on deck when
the Idlewlli banged alongside,, rushed
over the side and managed to get ashore,
while the fireboats took care of the aban
doned ship, quenched the flames after her
deckhouse had caught fire,- and her port
side was badly blistered, and then set
The-Idlewlld meanwhile had burned to
the water's edge, and a couple of lighters
also had been destroyed. Fire tugs and
engine companies were pouring their
streams Into tfie burning stores, but the
water was swallowed up In steam, and
the best that could be done was to keep
the edge of the burning pier drenched and
prevent the Are from spreading. By 4
o'clock the flames had died down to a
smoldering in the bales and debris that
settled upon the piling.
TWENTY MILLIONS CAPITAL.
No Stock for Sale In Cramps' Reor
NEW YORK, Jan. 9. A dispatch to the
World from London says:
A circular has been Issued privately to
the shareholders In the VIckers Sons &
Maxim Company, stating that the new
concern in which the company In future
will be associated with the Cramps will
have a capital of 4,000.000 (J20.000.000),
divided Into 2,000,000 ordinary shares.
There will also be J2.000.000 4 per cent
gold mortgage bonds, redeemable In 1930,
free of all Amerclan taxes.
The Cramps are to take 1,000,000 prefer

preference shares will be underwritten
In the United-States. No ordinary shares
will be offered to the public, the whole

ANOTHER GRAIN CARGO.
Cassard Discharges Invrard and
Londi OntTrard Cargo In Good Time.
The French bark Cassard finished load
ing at the elevator dock last evening, and
will clear today for Queenstown or Fal
mouth for orders, making the fourth
January ship to clear, and bringing the
shipments for the month to date up to
over 500,000 bushels. The Cassard has had
very good dispatch considering the fact
that she brought a full Inward cargo from
Europe. In discharging that cargo, and
loading outward, she has been less than
four weeks, and will probably finish be
fore the end of the week. The January
shipments will undoubtedly fall below
those of December, on account of the
delayed arrival of a number of ships
which are long overdue, but we will still
come very close to shipping 2,000,000 bush
els of wheat during the month.
Steamship Company In Trouble.
TRENTON, N. J.. Jan. 9. Application
has been made to the United States Cir
cuit Court for the appointment of a re
ceiver for the Cuban Land & Steamship
Company. The application is made by
Benjamin K. Taylor, Orrin M. Lambert
and Joseph H. Young, who charge that
the company has been mismanaged and
that It is now insolvent.
The company was organized to develop
property at La Gloria, Cuba, and to op
erate, a steamship line between New York
City and that place. It Is charged that a
steamship was purchased, that It made
three trips which were conducted at a
loss of J17.000: that the trips were then
abandoned; that $5000 worth of lumber
was purchased to erect a hotel at La
Gloria and that the hotel was not put up.

A. B. FITZGERALD, 'OF INDEPENDENCE.
INDEPENDENCE, Or., Jan. 9. A. B. Fltzcerald, a.Tploneer of 1852, passed
away peacefully at his home. In this city, at the advanced age of 81, surrounded
by his family. Those that were present at the bedside were his aged wife, J. J.
Fitzgerald, of Sclo; Mrs. S. M. Harris, of Waterloo; M.' A. Fitzgerald, of Leb
anon; Mrs. Dr. J. B. Johnson, of Independence; A. L. Fitzgerald, of Aberdeen,
Wash. Deceased was born in North Carolina in 1820, and moved to Indiana when
a boy. In 1838 he went to Iowa; and married Miss Rachel Smith In -1850. In 1852
they crossed the plains to Oregon, arriving in Portland In the Fall. They moved
to Marlon County In 18S8. and settled near Sublimity, where the family lived for
eight years, and then moved to Jefferson, for school purposes. From there tHcy

was fortunate, when Mr. Thlelsen laid
down' the work. In' finding In M. D. Wis
dom, of" Portland, a man who can take
It up and carry it forward with trie same
success that has attended It in the past.
The work devolving upon the president
being not so exacting, though no less Im
portant, the congress refused to relieve
him of the duties of his office, but elected
him for another term. The president and
secretary of the Oregon Agricultural So
ciety are now the president and secre
tary, respectively, of the Oregon Farmers'
"Progress," "up - to - dale methods,"
"modern facilities,", were common ex
pressions at the congress. Professor Lake
said in his very entertaining talk on his
observation in France that the Frenchman
tries to discover something better than his
neighbor has, and, upon finding it, se
cretes his find in order that he may have
an advantage over those who engage In
the same pursuit as himself. No such
spirit was manifest for a moment at the
Farmers' Congress. Every man present
seemed desirous of imparting to his neigh
bors whatever he had learned In the way
of Increasing production, decreasing the
cost of production, enlarging markets,
lessening the cost of marketing, or im
proving the quality, of the product.
"Up-to-Date Dairying" was the subject
of an interesting address "by Dr. James
Withycombe, of Corvallls. In his ad
dress, Dr. Withycombe said In part:
"This Is a recognized age of specializa
tion. Human energy concentrated on spe
cific work is more effective than when
applied to general schemes of develop
ment. The successful dairy farmer of the
20th century must necessarily be a spe
cialist. He will be conversant with the
fundamental principles of the chemistry
Of plants, the phenomena of vegetable
growth and animal nutrition; his best
thought and energy will be devoted to
problems In economic productions of for
age' plants, the principles of breeding,
training and handling the modern dairy
cow; he will appreciate the worth of an
agricultural education; the by-products
of the farm will receive due considera
tion at his hands; the potency and value
of barnyard manure for Increasing the
crops of the farm, will be fully recog
nized; problems affecting the marketing
of his products will be Intelligently stud
led, and organizations for the betterment
of the Industry with which he is Identi
fied will receive his cordial support.
"There Is a bright future for the dairy
industry of this state. Our possessions in
the Orient will give to this Nation a com
mercial prestige in those densely popu
lated countries. The development of our
shipping Interests on the Pacific will be
phenomenal. Line after line of steam
ships and a rapidly Increasing merchant
marine will ply the Pacific, carrying the
produce of our farms and factories to
civilized Asia. With this ever-expanding
trade will come a demand fot the fin
ished products of the farm, such as but
ter, cheese, meat, fruit, etc. Oregon is
no longer isolated from the markets of
the world, but Is, In 'reality. In the center
of the consuming population of the earth.
"The high-priced products of the farm
come from the dairy. These perhaps rep
resent the results of the best energies
of the farmer. With up-to-date dairying
wealth accumulates In various branches
of agriculture. Dairying paves the way
for larger crops. It robs the soil of prac
tically nothing. The by-products afford
a valuable sustenance to calves, swine
and poultry, thus enabling the farmer to.
secure larger annual returns from" the
sale of farm livestock. The dairy farm
stands next to the factory "for giving
constant employment to laborers. The
monthly revenues from this system of
husbandry afTect the commercial and
social status of a district. Instead of1
the farmer liquidating his obligations to
the merchant annually, he pays spot cash
for all his purchases. He becomes pros
perous and contented; his children are
given a college or university education;
the home is nicely furnished, and he Is
enabled to enjoy general "comforts of life.
"Oregon Is peculiarly adapted to dairy
ing. Its geographical location gives her
ready access to Important centers ofcon-
The climatic andr s'oll xoiidl-
tions are all that 'could be desired for
this purpose. The very best forage crops
can he' produced In great abundance. Ex
pensive barns to protect cows from ex
tremely vlow temperature are unneces
sary. With strictly up-to-date methods.
there is no reason why dairy -products
cannot be produced here at a sufficiently
low cost to defy competition."
Dr. Wlthycombe's address was no sooner
completed than a number of farmers were
on their feet to propound to him ques
tions. In answering these he said that
while Oregon-dairymen could not be ex
pected to take the care with their milk
that is taken with the milk sold at a high
price-to the New York City hospitals, yet
greater care should be taken than has
been heretorore. He assured the farmers
that it Is his observation that the dairy
cows of Oregon will compare favorably
with the "dairy cows of Minnesota and
other Middle Btates which ship butter to
New York. He considers. Oregon butter
a better article 'for shipping than the
butter made In Minnesota.
He urzed the necessity for taking care
of all the by-products of. the farm and
dairy, and in illustration of the returns
that may .thus be secured, he cited the
great profits made from by-products In
the Chicago packing-houses, where not a
hair or drop of blood is permitted to go-to
A few merchants being present- in the
audience, Dr. Withycombe Impressed "upon
them the importance of their finding for
the farmers new markets for their prod
ucts so that the home markets could be
relieved when glutted. The merchants
are In a position to find outside markets,
and" by so doing they maxe the farmers
more prosperous, and will in the end
reap the benefits themselves in the ex
tended trade that follows.
In connection with the subject of seek
ing markets for butter, H. E. Lounsbury,
traveling freight agent; of the Southern
Pacific, stated that tho Minnesota farmer
pays 14 cents per pound to transport his
butter to New York, and the Oregon
farmer mustpay but 2 cents. Mr. Louns
bury felt confident that with the product
ive soil and cllmate( the mild Winters
and long pasture seasons, the farmers can,
by adoption of the silo, produce butter
more than three-quarters of a cent
cheaper than the Minnesota farmer, and
thus be enabled to compete with the lat
ter In the New York market.
M. J. Jones, president of the Oregon
Hopgrowers Association, In discussing
"The Farmers Congress," said that no
better time than the beginning of the 20th
century foufd" be found for the assembling
of the farmers of Oregon for the purpose
of considering their mutual Interests. He
urged the farmers to stand together in
demanding needed legislation, especially
In the matter of adulteration of foods.
"The farmers of this country pay most of
the taxes," he said, "and are 1,500,000 ma
jority or all tne voters of tne united
Btates, and by properly making their
wants known, they can make no reason
able demand that will not be granted
them. In" the march of prosperity the
producing and laboring classes keep lock
step with the farmer, towering above all
and well In advance. When crops are
good, and prices fair, purchases are
numerous, orders abundant, and every
"occupation thrives. The amity of inter
ests of nine-tenths of the people of the
Nation should co-operate for the benefit
State Fair and the Farmer.
George L. Bees, of the State Board of
Agriculture, In discussing the benefits of
the state fair to the farmers, said, In
"The question before us today Is, What
can we io to, make the farmer's life more
pleasant and profitable? We, as agricul
turists, have improved from time to time
in the management of our farms, and
there is still great room for Improvement,
The question before us today Is not how
to manage a large farm as In the past,
but how can'Tfe manage, a email farm and
make It pay as well as our large farms
did a few years ago. And that Is what
we are here for today.
"In the City of Salem, ono year ago,
we organized a farmers' congress for the
purpose of building up the agricultural
interests of this state, which, as yet, aru
only In their Infancy. Most especially Is
this noticeable In the methods of diversi
fied farming, and we hope to make thli
meeting both pleasant and profitable by
givlng our experience In the past and tell
ing our plans for the future, and that Is
the object in .conducting . a state fair,
where we can gather all the products ot
our state, selecting the best and most
perfect specimens and placing them on
exhibition at the annual state fair; giv
ing the publlc'-an object-lesson, and -where
we can learn the best methods of propa
gating, cultivating and developing each
and every article placed" on exhibition;
wliere we can see what others are doing
and learn from their experience, for we
should all endeavor to Improve at all
times. " ,
"We fully realize the great and good
work that has been done by the different
boards of trade, chambers of commerce,
railroads and the different press associa
tions, but In our Judgment a much great
