OUR MEAT SHUT OUT
English Army Wants No

'What Packers Say
WASHINGTON, ' April 1I. The Depart
ment of Agriculture has received a dis
patch from a, prominent. packing" company
6f Chicago, announcing that they have
just been advised that the English Gov
ernment has excluded all beef, except
home-bred, from the British Army con
tracts. This, It Is stated, Is to be effect
lve June 1 pext. The- Chicago concern
has asked the Agricultural Department
for any assistance it can render. It has'
pointed out that the action of the British
Government is a severe blow to American'
beef and cattle exporters and producers,
and means not- alone the loss in Govern
ment trade, but it Is feared it will serve
very materially toward melting a preju
dice on the part of the people, of Great
Britain against the beef and cattle of this
No official confirmation of this reported
contemplated move has reached the de
partment, according to statements of of
ficials. Steps have been taken, however,
' looking to acquiring whatever information
it is possible to get. To demonstrate the
Importance of the move now said to be
contemplated, it is pointed out that the
"value of our exports of live animals to
Great Britain amounts to $40,000,000, while
the total amount of animal products ex
ported from the United States to Great
Britain is- stated to be, in round numbers,,
$200,000,000. It is pointed out here that
this proposed embargo may really be a;
sequel, In- 'greater: or less degree, to the
proceedings instituted at New Orleans
against shipments of horses and mules
from that port for ubb In the South Af
rican' campaign. "While this Is, of course,
merely conjectural. It is very strongly
hinted that the New Orleans incident
probably is the direct inspiration for the
step. It is pointed out that If the Eng
lish officials really decided to take the
action reported in the advices just re
ceived, the British might turn to Aus
tralia for their meats. It is claimed,
however, that meats cannot be gotten
there, In as good quantity, quality nor as
cheap as In the United States.
ADVICES TO CHICAGO PACKERS.

packlne firm referred to a& having wired
the Agricultural Department regaYdihg;
the probable action' of 'tlie 'English' Gov
ernment excluding alt but home-bred' beef
from army contracts. A. H. "Veeder,
general counsel for Swift & Co., said .their
London representatives cabled to the
aboVe effect and they Immediately advised
the department at Washington. They
.also had cabled London for further Infor
mation. Mr. Veeder was inclined to doubt
that definite action had been taken, by .the
G. J. Brine, of Armour & Co., said his
company had received a cablegram from
its London agent stating that "It was
rumored" that such action had been
taken. Armour, & Co. Immediately tele

Packers of this city were not disposed
thlsjevening to discuss the reported action
of the English Government. None of
them seemed greatly surprised at the ac
tion, and all said that they had declded'on
no course of action.
"We will wait until we know more about
it," said General Manager Meeker, of Ar
mour & Co. "There is no earthly cause
for such action that I can think of. It
cannot be on account of the quality of the
beef, as it has always been first class
In every respect." v
Swift & Co. expressed similar views to
those of .Mr. -Meeker. General Manager
Lyon, of the Hammond Company, said
he did not know enough about, the matter
to discuss It, but he did not anticipate
that the American packers would be bad
CUDAHY NOT ALARMED. "
Understands the Restriction Affects
the Home Government Alone.
OMAHA, April 1L Edward A. Cudahy,
head of' the packing-house interests of the
Cudahy" Packing Company, was asked to
night what he anticipated would be the
effect of the decision of the British Gov
ernment to'refrain from the use of Ameri
can meats by that government. He said
he thought the result would not be seri
ous. He understands that the restriction
affects the home Government alone, and
not the colonies, and stated that his com
pany is now filling an order for 2,000,000
pounds for the English Government's use
in South Africa, part of -which has al
ready been shipped. He says the home
consumption of- meat by that government
is small, and will have little or no conse
quence In the packing business. He does
not think the people of Great Britain
will' be influenced by the action of the
government, as American meats are ac
cepted by the British without question,
and he does not anticipate any damage to
American trade. Mr. Cudahy said his
company had taken no action in the re
ported attempt of packers looking to a
modification of the order, and probably
would not until the details and facts be
came better known. American packers,
he said, furnished about 1,000,000 pounds
of fresh beef weekly to the English trade,
of which but a small portion goes to the
army and navy, and he does not believe
this supply can be secured from other
than American sources.
HEIRS TO FORTUNES.
Claimants to the Estates of "Dr.
Keattle" and Imbray Clark.
LOUISVILLE, April 1L The Courier
Journal tomorrow will say: w
"Hugh J. Havlland, of Greenville, Ky
clairr-ii to be one of the heirs of a fortune
left by 'Dr.-"Theodore Keattle,' Tvho dfed
at Punta Gorda, Fla., Inl896. Then it was
discovered that the 'doctor was a woman,
and that fbr.30 years she had masquerad
ed as a man. Tlie woman was a mother.
Those who are supposed to know say that
In 1853 a little boy, was placed In the Prot
estant Episcopal" Orphan Asylum at
Louisville by 'Dr. Keattle,' then confes
sedly a woman, known as Kate Havl-
land. The boy's name "was Hugb-'J.'HavI-land.
He was later bound-out to,a farm
er, and finally rose to an Independent po
sition "at Greenville. Hugh J2 Havlland
of- Greenville, Ky.,t Is regarded as that
boy. That Kate Havlland was 'Dr. KeK,f-
tie' was, it Is said, practically, established
by witnesses in New York and Brooklyn.
But Hugh Havlland Is heir to hut half
the fortune. A girl, who. 13 expected -to
divide it with him Grace M. Clark Ellt-ott,.-HavHand's
niece believes herself sole
heiress of Imbray Clark, of Australia,
who -died worth $25,000,000.
"Hugh Havlland's little sifter, , Kate
Havlland's other child according to Law
yer Goldwalthe, of New York' vwas put
by the mother with foster parents. The
girl grew up, married Imbray jClark and
went WesfwUh him. In 1877 '.they went
to San Francisco, and there a .child was
born. Within two weeks the delicate
mqther died. The baby was placed in the
hands of Mrs. Martha A. Grlswpld, super
intendent of the Home for the friendless,
by Imbray Clark, who sailed almost Im
mediately for Australia. Several years
after Mrs. Griswold heard qt 'Clark's
death and advertised for, some one to
adopt the little orphan girl. The Elliotts
responded, and August 21, 1878, were
granted papers of adoption oy a court In
-San 'Francisco. In 1897 the Elliotts learned
that Imbray Clark had left a fortune of
525,000,000, to which there was no heir, and
began a fight for their foster, daughter's
rights? The estate is tied up in the Eng
lish courts, and, though hundreds of
claimants have come forwarai none has
been able to prove claims to the satisfac
tion of the .British authorities.''

Mr. Loomis said he saw no necessity for
sending a United States squadron to

that It was possible this .might be done.
Venezuela Is now quiet, ano.there is no
apprehension of a revolution. The Min
ister said he believed President Castro la
capable of handling the situation. He
made no direct statement regarding the
possibility of trouble between the United
States and Venezuela, remarking that he
could not talk on the subjeptbefore reach
ing Washington, but so far as he knew
the entire misunderstanding- "was due to
the asphalt controversy, and la his opin
ion, months will elapse before it"isettled

DE YOUNG'S IMPRESSIONS.
Americans Are Notv Treated With,
More Civility Abroad.
NEW YORK, ApriTli. M. H. De Young,
of San Francisco, accompanied by Mrs.
De Young, returned from London on thd
Deutschland today, after a six monthsr
trip through France, Italy, Egypt and
"That which struck me most forcibly
during my last, visit abroad," said Mri
De Young, "was the standing accorded
traveling Americans in every country, as
compared with the treatment they re
ceived a few years ago. The wonderful
progress made In our exports and the
marvelous development of our industries
have Impressed the whole world. Enter
a store as an Intending- purchaser and
the fact that one is an American seems to
settle his financial credit.
"Our municipal authorities may well
take a lesson from the city fathers of
Paris. The expenditures made yearly to
maintain its position as the leading and
most . beautiful city In the Tvorld can
hardly be realized by our people. This
year thei city of Paris appropriated JG0,
000,000 for opening new streets and erect
ing ornamental improvements. Last year
the expenditure even exceeded this sum.
Cities must be managed as. one would
.a private enterprise. New and attract
ive features must constantly be added.
The sooner the American people learn
to appreciate that works of art and taste
ful ornamentation are profitable invest
ments for our cities, the more quickly
our cities will take their stand with
the leading capitals of the old world.
"Foreigners admit, almost with distress,,
and at least with shame, that America
furnishes nearly all their machinery. In
England the feeling is especially strong
against the encroachment of .our manu
facturers and products Into their markets,

In January, 18SG, Mr. Cox removed to

DYIXG MAN'S MESSAGE. '
Mr. Cox Wrote a Letter to Be Pub
lished After His Death.
Some weeks ago Mr. Cox asked for
paper and pencil and wrote a farewell
message ro ms lnenus. Jie was very
(weak at the time, and saldi "That fs very
poor, I am afraid; but It Is the best I can
do now. Maybe I can change it when T
am stronger." It was- suggested that a
number of copies be made and sent to
friends, to which he made reply: "No,
that is not what I want. I do not want
it to reach just those- friends who have
been tto inquire for me or send me flow
ers, l?ut to- all of my acquaintances In
everynwallc.1 of life. I want It published,
with my funeral notice or mention of my
death in The -Oregonian." This Is Mr.
To My. Friends? A IRtle more than.21 years
ago 1 came todregon, without acquaintances,
without experience In" my profession and wltb-
out means. I am now lylns on a .sick bed, of
which death can be ' the- onljr termination.
During these Intervenlns weeks and days
there has come to me one unvarying story o
love and sympathy from every walk In life -and
every stage of acquaintanceship. So nweet a
spirit ot peace and joy has filled my room that
1 cannot bo without glvlns sqme feehle expres
sion to It. I am overwhelmed with the hu-.
man' sympathy which has reached out to me
from so many different directions: but I must
take It only as a manifestation of an Inex
haustible well-sprlnc of love which caa re
fresh and Inspire the whole world.
Let me pray that not to me only, but to all
others; your,'lovlns tenderness may be shown;
not to those In sickness only, but as well to
-those In health. Give a helping hand and a
word of comfort and hope to your struggling
brother; clear his path of difficulties, rather
than beset It with obstructions: help him to be
a better man and by so doing you will help
yourselves to be better men.
It cannot be that all the love you have shown
me comes from perishable life: I cannot ba-
-Hve that It will pass away with my conscious
ness and be lost. We shall meet again In a
land where love will reign supreme, and where
In eternal sunahlno all clouds wilt have passed

ATTACKED BY CATHOLICS.
Educational Legislation Threatens
Parochial School System.
CHICAGO. April 11. Educational legis-
latipn'Cfn - the '.United States .was', attacked
today in the Roman Catliollc educational
congress as being partial- and prejudicial
to' the , rights of , individuals and. of re
ilglpus Institutions, The paper on "Edu
cational Legislation in the United States,"
which brought. out the. discussion, was
'read' by Rev. James P. Fagln, S. J., vice-
president of Georgetown University. Pjro
fessor E. J. Ryan, A. M of Mount St.
Mary's College, Emmettsburg, Md read
a paper on "Teaching of English In Col
lege," in which he urged for the purity
and thoroughness of the language. Con
sideration of technical subjects made up
the rest of the day's programme.
Speakers at the afternoon session de
clared that modern educational legislation
threatened the life of the parochial school
system. All this class of legislative action,
they said, seriously discriminated against
church schools and every other system of
education which seeks to combine re
ligious, training with learning. It was
argued that under existing conditions
Catholics "were compelled to pay taxes
for the support of public schools which
their children do not attend. It was In
sisted that .the State should recognize
Catholic schools "on the same basis with
other educational Institutions to which
financial assistance Is given. Monslgnor
"We are not here by suffrance, but we
are here as American citizens demanding
our .rights. We are not asking for fa
vor; all we want is justice. We want
recognition as citizens and taxpayers' in
school affairs. We believe that no true
education Is possible without religious In
struction, and we have a Tight to insist
upon our demands. There is no doubt
that nearly all the educational laws en
acted by the states are aimed at the
Catholic school system. It is our duty
both to ourselves and our people to pro
test and continue protesting until our
objections are heeded."
Father Dowllng, of the Omaha Univer
sity, expressed fear that Catholics had
In the past not kept In close touch with
the Improved methods advocated by non
sectarian institutions. They failed to pre
sent their arguments to the inas3 of the
people by means of the newspaper, the
magazine and other publications.
WASHINGTON. April ILThere was a
touching scene at Mount Vernon today,
when M. Carabcn, the French Ambassa
dor, accompanied by the officers of the

otfier distinguished guest3, placed a

ington. After the brief ceremony at the

Texas Oil Is Not So Bad.
LIMA, O., April 11. Tests made In re
fining Texas crude oil at the Standard Oil
refinery here show the product ot tho
Beaumont field to be of much higher
grade than heretofore estimated. That

with the Beauntont output as a factor Is
now coming to be recognized. The recent
decline In both the Pennsylvania and
Lima markets is attributed to the strike
In the Beaumont field.

Striking Features of the New
LEVIS AND CLARK MEMORIAL
While It May Be Said to Advertise
Three Exhibitions, Portland
Certainly Has the
WASHINGTON. April 11. The new
United States legal tender note recently
authorized by the Treasury Department,
may well he called the "exposition note."
It3 popularity Is said" to be commemora
tive of three different expositions, al
though none has a better claim than
the Portland exposition of 1903. The strik
ing feature of the face of the new note 1
the vignette of a buffalo, which occupies
the center, and Is slightly larger than the
Indians on the new ?5 note. On one side
of the buffalo Is a smaller vignette of
Lewis, and on the opposite side a vignette
of Clark. The buffalo gives rise to the
story that the new note was gotten out
in commemoration of the Pan-American
Exposition. The St. Louis papers, on the
theory that the buffalo formerly ranged in
most of the states of the Louisiana pur
chase. Immediately set up the claim that
the note was Issued In honor of their ap
proaching exposition. The portraits, pf
Lewis and Clark give Portland the same
fight to claim that the note Is commemor
ative of the exposition of 1905.
The claim of Portland is better founded
than either of the others. It has been
tho desire of the Treasury Department to
have each denomination dCGovemment
notes bear some distinguishing- mark on
Its face, which will be prominent above
all else. As the Indian does on the new
$3 note, It was thought the buffalo would
readily identify the new tens. Besides
being a purely American figure, no
thought whatever was given to the Buf
falo exposition. The claim of St. Loul3
Is very far-fetched.
Tlie agitation of the Lewis and Clark
exposition had reached, the ears of de
partment officials, and in casting about
for two allied prominent Americans, these
explorers were recalled. Furthermore,
this being- an era of expansion, It was
thought all the more appropriate that two
men who added such a vast and rieh ter
ritory to the United States might now be
properly and fittingly remembered and for
these reasons the portraits of Lewis and
Clark were selected to adorn the new
510 notes. However, the department la
gratified to know that It3 choice answers
the purpose of simultaneously honoring
three different expositions. Because of
the distinctive Western tone of the new
note, a heavy demand Is expected In that
section. The adopted design, after belng
iphotosraphed, was turned over to the en
gravers today and the plates will be pre
pared, as rapidly as possible, although
the notes will not be ready to go Into cir
culation for about six months.
