the Canadian and United ates sides of
the Soo Canal, with a capacity of 600,000
tons annually, and employing about 10,
000 men. The Consolidated Lake Superior
Power Company, of which Mr. Clergue Is

the new company.
As an outcome of the establishing of the
steel works at the Soo, It is said that a J

STATIONARY ENGINE TRUST.
Philadelphia Company Goes Into the
PHILADELPHIA, April 19. A special
meeting of the stockholders of the Penn
sylvania Iron Company was held today,
and the proposition to amalgamate with
four of the most prominent stationary en
gine manufacturing companies in the
country was effected. The big combine
Will be launched In a few weeks, with a
capital of $25,000,000. Although the Phila
delphia concern Is capitalized at 15,000,000,
only $1,000,000 in 7 per cent cumulative pre
ferred stock of the company was offered
for its plant and fixed assets. About 20
stoc.hoiuers, representing nearly all of
the capital stock, were present at tlie
meeting, and some of them objected to the
price offered, declaring it was less than
the plant was appraised to be worth. It
was explained, by way of answer, that the
other four companies the E. P. Allis
Company, of Milwaukee; Eraser & Chal
mers, of Chicago; Gates Iron Works Com
pany, of Chicago, and Dickson Manufac
turing Company, of Scranton were also to
be given less than the appraised value of

NEW YORK, April 19. The Journal and
"The Standard Oil Company will
declare a dividend about May 1
of 20 per cent on Its capital stock of

NEW YORK, April 19. The World says:
"That the United States Steel Corpora
tion is about to enter the foreign field with
all possible dispatch is shown by a con
tract just made. The Carnegie Steel Com
pany has been awarded a contract for
20,000 tons of steel plates by the Harland

ever placed In this country for steel

plant here, having purchased 37 acres of
land on which the plant will be erected.
FRONT FOOT ASSESSMENT.
A Brief Argument Agrainst the In
iquity of It.
PORTLAND. April 19. (To the Editor.)
There should be no surprise at the de
cision of Judge Bellinger respecting our
present method of Improving streets. The
Norwood vs. Baker case was well known
to all persons interested in street matters,
and its effect on charter provisions such
as ours had been discussed very generally
through the public press.
A number of months before the meeting
of the Legislature the Taxpayers' League
expressly Instructed its committee on
street mnGs-jfhat, jn preparing amend
ments to the- "charter, provisions should
be made to have our charter In harmony
with the principles established by this
case. It was considered not only possible,
but altogether probable, the question
would arise, and the members of the
league desired to get the charter In such
shape that street improvements could not
be stopped. Mr. Mills, as chairman of the
committee, assisted by counsel, spent days
and nights in the hardest kind of work
preparing these amendments, which were
finally sent to the members of the Legis
lature for incorporation Into the charter.
It looks now very much as though the
building of new streets will be postponed
for two years. It should .be apparent to
any one that the method of paying for
improving streets by front foot assess
ment Is Inequitable. In North and South
Portland, and in -many parts of the East
Side, it virtually means confiscation, and
just why it is right to put the "gulch" or
"low land" owner to such enormous ex
pense, and with but little, if any, benefit
to him, in order to benefit the upland own
er, has always passed my understanding.
Why should the ""low lanas" on the East
Side bear all the expense of maintaining
roadways in order that the 'upland own
ers" can reach the bridges? It may be a
simple and easy way to figure out the
cost, etc, but it can hardly be called fair..
J. N. TEAL.
An Admirer of Mills.
PORTLAND, April 19. (To the Editor.)
"Judge not lest ye be judged" is one of
the best sayings ever made, and in the
ia.ee of It I fail to understand how min
isters can speak, as did some of the rep
resentatives of Portland pulpits yester
day to your reporter each and more,
too, are promising to entertain from their
pulpits today with utterances made by
nd exceptions taken to remarks from
B. Fay Mills, who spoke words like In
spiration from the Unitarian pulpit three
vcr.ings last week to packed houses.
Mr. Mills' lectures showed scientific study,
painstaking thought and good, sound ar
gument, clothed in words sublime for the
most learned, yet so plain and compre
hensive that a child could understand;
over all was cast a halo of God's glory,
shining forth as 'a light In the dark
ness." Methinks perhaps these ministers would
not so promptly .sharpen their pencils to
the stabbing point, or stir the recesses
of their brains, had they themselves
heard Mr. Mills and not taken second
band words purporting to be his; one
"packed his traveling bag for an out-of-town
appointment," while another was
brave enough to "not read the report
and did not Intend to read It." (Wonder
if he would close his ear to a deacon's
report of the meetings?)
"Were I, by some miraculous power, sev
ered in twain nay, into several intelligent
oeings I should be glad to hear face
to face what each one of these several
ministers will say today from their own
pulpits concerning Mr. Mills' late and
last visit to Portland. However, since
such power can not be vested upon me, I
will be as were most, If not all, these
preachers, content to look to your paper
tomorrow, and thus get second-hand or
catch stray comments by those who da
hear "what will be said, as these ministers
have done, to catch the spirit of Mr.
Mills understanding of this vast subject

LIVELY SCRAP AT SPOKANE.
President's Visit Made the Football
of. Factional Politics.
Spokane Spokesman Review.
It Is a matter of widespread regret that
the reception to President McKinley Is
turning into a factional affair. By the
plan as outlined, John L. Wilson Is mads
the conspicuous figure. As chairman of
the committee on presidential comfort he
will take the center of the stage and the
calcium light. "
This committee will wait on the presi
dent In his private car, and the chairman
will extend the greeting and welcome.
The chairman will be constantly at the
president's elbow. All who know John L.
Wilson know that between the lines of all
he says this refrain will be running all
the while: "I am the big tyee of this city
and the surrounding country. My felllow
citizens have selected me. Mr. President,
as one deserving the highest honor within
their gift. I am their personal representa
tive and mouthpiece."
A partisan reception would be bad
enough; but this factional Influence is
most unfortunate. Mr. Wilson should have
had the goood taste not to push himself
forward In this matter, and the persons
responsible for the arrangements should
have had the good judgment not to yield
to his insiduous pressure.
It was said the affair would be non
partisan. In that case. It would seem
that Senator Turner would have been a
more proper selection for chairman of the
presidential committee. He is a member
of the United States Senate, and under
the constitution is one of the President's
official advisers. Certainly It is strange
that a United States Senator should be
pushed aside on the occasion of the Presi
dent's visit to his home city, and an ex
Senator put forward in his place. This
course might be proper If the greeting
were a partisan greeting, though even in
that case it would be a stroke of doubtful
party judgment. It is recent history, fresh
In the minds of all, that Mr. Wilson's
ambition and Mr. Wilson's rule wrecked
the Republican party of Washington. The
people rose in rebellion against his polit
ical machine and turned the state over
to the Fusion forces by an unprecedented
majority. At the recent election they em
phasized their disapproval of his political
methods by defeating his candidate for
Governor, though at the same time they
gave President McKinley a great majority
and elected every other candidate on the
Republican state ticket. Further to em
phasize their dislike of the Wilson meth
ods, the voters of his home county elected
a legislative delegation that was two-
If not deemed advisable, from a party
viewpoint, to select Senator Turner, It Is
strange that the persons controlling this
matter did not choose a citizen like John
A. Finch, D. C. Corbln or one of 20 others
who could be named representative and
wholly free from factional lnfluencs.
It was thought the purpose of the move
ment was to honor the President and his
party; to arrange a greeting that "would
be wholly non-partisan and non-factional.
But is seems the reception Is to be turned
into a factional project,- designed specially
to build up the shattered political fences
of John L. Wilson.
"What Oregon Needs.
What Oregon needs in the way of at
tracting Immigration is a plain, concise
statement of facts concerning its re
sources and products, a publication that
will tell the truth, and in which every
statement made can be backed up with

distributed In every country of the Union.
Such a publication would attract thou

MERDDA, Yucatan, April 19. General
Felipe Tama, the chief leader of the Maya
rebel Indians, has been assassinated by
some of his under officers, who were exas
perated at his advice to surrender and end
the war. Three minor chiefs attacked him
with machetes, cutting him to pieces.
Then the Indians gathered around the
corps and Indulged In a long orgy. This
action, It is believed, shows a determina

Cable Match Game Between' Ameri
cans and British.
NEW YORK. April 19. The interna
tional cable chess match for the Newnes
trophy between American and British
players began today. The Americans
played In the Academy of Music, Brook
lyn, and the Britons in the Cafe Monico,
London. The drawing for moves resulted
in the Americans playing white on the
odd and black on the even numbered
boards. The openings were as follows:
American. Great Britain. Opening.
1 Pillsbury . Blackburne. . . .Sicilian.
3 Barry Mason Irregular.
2 Showalter Lee Caro-Kann.
4 Hodges... Mills Ruy Lopez.
5 Hymes. . . . Atkins .Ruy Lopez.
6 Voignt. . . . Bellingnam. . . .Sicilian.
7 'Marshall.. Ward Q Gambit Dec.
8 Hampton. Jackson Gluoco Piano.
9 Nowman. .Jacobs Dutch.
10 Howell.... Mitchell Q Gambit Dec
Pillsbury, In the course of his Sicilian
defense made by Blackburn, offered to
sacrifice his pawn, which the wily Eng
lishman did not deem prudent to cut.
Eventually, the American was gaining
ground. Showalter defended himself with
a king's finchetto against Mason. The
latter failed to maintain the advantage
gained In the opening and the position
Is fairly even now. Barry had the
superior game against Lee throughout the
day. A lot of fine maneuvering" charac
terized the ruy lopez between Mills and
Hodges. The American held his own
very well and was not slow In accumu
lating slight advantages which ought to
Insure him a draw, to say theleast. Less
favorable Is the 'aspect presented by
board No. 5. In the morning, Hymes
had a fine game against Atkins, but after
recess the position turned In favor of
the Englishman, although there Is plenty
of fight left to determine the issue. The
most promising outlok is at board No. 7,
where Marshall after pulling out of a bad
position, won a pawn from Ward. The
remaining games are about even, that on
No. 10 being a shade In favor of the
American player. Play will be resumed
LONDON. April 19. A fair crowd was
present today at the opening of the Inter
national chess match, at the Cafe Monico.
The entrance of Sir George Newnes with
Blackburn was greeted with applause.
The latter requested that he be given the
first table, against his old antagonist
Pillsbury. The American master's open
ing was greeted with a perceptible smile
on the part of Blackburn. The courteous
settlement by America of the question of
Mason's eligibility to represent England
was much -appreciated. I t t

I DECISION IN SUGAR CASE
GOVERNMENT JUSTIFIED IN IMPOS
ING COUNTERVAILING DUTY.
Majority Vote by the Board of Clan
slflcation of the General Apprais
ers Other National News.
NEW YORK, April 19. The Board of
Classification of the United States Gen
eral Appraisers today announced a de
cision In the Russian sugar case. The
board decided by a majority vote that the
American Government was justified in as
sessing a countervailing duty on Russian
sugar, the precise amount being deter
mined according to the bounty declared
to have been paid by the Russian Gov
ernment when the sugar was exported.
The countervailing duty was levied In
connection with the circular issued by
Secretary Gage February 14 last. This
circular was based on section 4 of the
present tariff act, which directs that, in
addition to the regular duties, counter
vailing duties shall be assessed upon goods
which receive bounties from foreign gov
ernments, the extra duty to be equal to
the bounty. The opinion of the bbard is
written by Judge Henderson Somervllle,
late of the Supreme Court of Alabama,
and General Appraiser Fischer concurs
with him. George C. Tichener, ex-Assistant
Secretary of the Treasury, writes a
Scale Act Nullified.
WASHINGTON, April 19. An order In
council has recently, been passed by the
Canadian Government nullifying the op
erations of the "San Jose Scale Act,"
which heretofore practically has prohib
ited the Importation from the United
States of all kinds of nursery stock, ac
cording to a report to the State Depart
ment from Consul Graham at Winnipeg.
The order exempts from the San Jose act
any trees, shrubs, plants, vines, grafts,
cuttings or buds, commonly known as
nursery stock from any country to which
the act applies, and all Importations of
such shrubbery are permitted to be en
tered at the customs ports of Winnipeg
between March 15 and May 15 and between
October 7 and December 7, and at the
customs ports of Vancouver, B. C, from
October 15 to March 15. Entries are not
permitted at other ports than those men
tioned. The plants must be thoroughly
fumigated, but the Canadian Government
assumes no responsibility for any damage
A Novel Investigation.
WASHINGTON, April 19. The Naval
Board of Construction has taken up the
important work of Investigating the con
struction of battle-ships and cruisers un
der modern conditions. The Inquiry cov
ers questions as to the weight and ex
tent of armor, the form and location of
turrets, the kind of guns on various ships,
the extent of using electricity and the
relative merits of sheathed and un
sheathed vessels. At the same time, plans
are to be prepared for two sea-going battle-ships
and two armored cruisers, car
rying the most suitable armor and arma
ment for vessels of their class.
WASHINGTON, April 19. Naval Con
structor Hobson. who is now on special
duty here, has been given his first as
signment In connection with the torpedo
boat Tyngey, the contract on which has
been declared forfeited. The contractors
claim that they furnished a number of
extras before the forfeiture occurred. The
ship will now be towed from Baltimore
to Norfolk, where Constructor Hobson and
other members of the board will make an
inquiry to learn how far these extras were
warranted. , .
Diaz May Be There.
EL PASO, Tex., April 19. The Governors
of New Mexico and Arizona and Governor
Ahumada, of the State of Chihuahua,
'Mex., have declared their Intention to at
tend the Presidential celebration In El
Paso, May 5. Governor Ahumada will at
tend, with his staff, and bring one of the
Mexican military bands here. Efforts are
still being made to get President Diaz to
meet President McKinley here, and, as he
has not declined the Invitation, it is
thought he will come.
Increase Speed of DeMtroyers.
WASHINGTON. April 19. The Navy De
partment is considering a plan by which
the torpedo-boat destroyers now building
at Philadelphia can undergo changes in
construction by which one knot can be
added to the speed originally contracted
for, making them 29-knot boats. The chief
constructor of the Navy will be In Phila
delphia today, to determine whether the
chages can be made.

mer has caused a tremendous health
revival In Havana and Santiago.
The American Idea, "A sound mind

lessons Cuba and Porto Rico are learn
But they are learning fast.
Whatever distrust Cubans may have
of American politicians, they have con
fidence in America's greatest remedy,
Paine's celery compound.
It has opened the eyes of the people
of Havana and Santiago to the possi
bilities of good health in a way their
crude remedies had never let them,
Paine's celery compound Is doing a
tremendous missionary work this
Spring among the sick, not only
throughout the United States, but
wherever the American influence Is
The best families In Santiago are
taking Paine's celery compound. The
common people are looking after their
health as never before. American phy
sicians In Havana are ordering the
great Spring remedy. Its health-giving
effect on friends and relatives who
first tried Paine's celery compound in
the United States has encouraged thou
sands of despondent, hopeless sufferers
at home to use it. The" result in all
pers wnlch prove that a plot against the
lives of the Emperor of Germany, the
Czar of Russia, the King and Queen of
Italy and the Count of Turin was recently
laid In Paterson. N. J. Investigation was
begun here en receipt of dlspatcnes from '

these cases has "been the direct causa
of the health revival that is now arous
ing such tremendous enthusiasm.
That Santiago seconds Havana's in
dorsement of Paine's celery compound
Is shown by the following letter from
Mrs. Belen Guerra:
Santiago, Cuba, Jan., 1901.
Well3, Blchardson, Co.:
Dear Sirs I have had the gout In my
fingers and hands. My limbs were be
numbed and I could hardly stand. I
went to several physicians. A drug
gist advised me to use Paine's celery
compound. I began at once to get bet
ter, and today I am perfectly well.
Naturally, I have great faith in Paine's
celery compound. Very truly yours,
MRS. BELEN GUERRA.
Every one In this Springtime neod

nerves. Carry home today iot by and
by a bottle of Paine's celery com
pound. Cure nervousness, neuralgia
and rheumatism this Spring. You can
now put your health on a sound basis
by means of Paine's celery compound.
Such evidences of an unhealthy con
dition as those constant hendaches,
melancholy, dyspepsia or constlpatloa
rapidly disappear under the cleansing,
regulating action of Paine's celery compound.
