The grain .fleet sent out from Portland
In the month closing yesterday broke all
records for the month of April and ran up
into figures that are seldom reached even,
in ttm hp'srht of the shinning season In
the Fall. Exclusive of two Oriental lin
ers departing with big cargoes 01 nour,
there was a fleet of seventeen sailing ves
sels and steamers, loaded with wheat and
flour for European ports, and the aggre
gate shipments flour included) reacnea a
total of over 2,150.000 hushels of wheat.
This Is more than double the amount
shipped a year ago In the corresponding
month In fact is larger than the com
bined shipments for April, 1900, and April,
1SS9. It swells the total shipments from
this port for the first ten months of the
current cereal year to 11,887.729 bushels of
wheat and 866,844 barrels of flour, com
pared with 7.787,973 bushels of wheat and
375,861 barrels of flour for the same period
jast season. Puget Sound's April ship
ments were 933,959 bushels of wheat and
53,268 barrels of flour.
The total shipments from Portland and
Puget Sound for the season to date (flour
included) are 27,777,352 bushels, of which
Portland has shipped 15.788,527 bushels and
Tacoma and Seattle 11,988,825 bushels. The
month of ilay will not make such a re
markable showing as that of the month
just closed, but there is tonnage enough
In .sight together with the Oriental busi
ness to enable the port to again get past
the 3,000,000 bushel mark. Puget Sound
teirltory Is more thoroughly cleaned out
than that which Is tributary to Portland,
and from now on this port will show a
heavier business proportionately than It
has in the past
VERlf STATjXCH HUM..
JOredger Under Construction on East
Side a Sturdy Crnft.
The hull of the dredger under construc
tion at Supples' boatyard for the North
Paclnc Lumbering Company, will be one
of the etaunchest and most substantial
of Its kind. It is 'being built for rough
Tisage, and will be able to repel the hard
est treatment without receiving Injury.
"When finished, this dredger will be one of
the most efliclent and complete In Port
land harbor. The framework Is of very
heavy material, and, together with the
unusually thick planking, which is now
being added, will make up a practically
invulnerable hull. Although an -unusually
large number of etays, braces and Iron
bolts hae been used, further stiffening
will be effected by the addition of 40 fir
Itnees. All this Is calculated to make the
hall as staunch as a solid mass of wood,
and yet bouyant, for the craft will draw
only 16 Inches of waer.

GIYEX QUICK! DISPATCH.
British Bark Port Carlisle Loaded in
Lens Than Two Days.
The best dispatch that has been given
any of the sailing grain fleet this year
was that of the British bark Port Carlisle,
which was cleared yesterday by G. W.
McNear & Co. The Port Carlisle has
been in Portland harbor but eight days,
and part of this time was occupied in
cleaning the hull of the ship, which had
become very foul through a long sojourn
in tropical waters. The vessel did not
start loading until Monday morning, and
by noon yesterday she had completed Iher
cargo and at 2 o'clock was cleared." The
Wega, which has been in port since
March, was also cleared yesterday by
Kerr, Glfford & Co., with a big cargo.
These -vessels bring the season's fleet
to date up to 117 vessels, exclusive of the
flour steamers for the Orient.
RIO INSURANCE PAID.
Underwriters Lose Xenrly One Mil
SAN FRANCISCO, April 30. All the in
surance on the cargo of the wrecked
steamer Rio de Janeiro, amounting to
$900,000, has been paid. It is not known
liow much insurance was carried on the
vessel. The Collector of Customs at
Sonolulu sent over by the Rio $30,000 In
treasure, and It "was not Insured. The
steamship company also carried many
thousands in Its safe on which likewise
there was no insurance. The most valu
able portion of the cargo was raw silk.
The loss of the Rio was the climax of a
series of very bad marine losses here and
In London. As a result the local agencies
of all the foreign marine companies have
received notice to cut down the size of
lines which they carry.
Astoria Marine Men at Large.
Captain H. A. Matthews, one of the Co
lumbia River bar pilots who has braved
the dangers of the ocean for the past 25
years, has been granted a leave of ab
sence and will visit his old home in
Maine. He passed through the city yes
terday and was accompanied as far as
Portland by Captain W. A. Johnston,
manager of the Astoria branch of Brown
& McCabe's business. Captain Johnston
Is going up to the Hot Springs to soak
out some of the rheumatism which sprouts
around Astoria's wharves in the winter

h WASHINGTON, April 2S.-Judging from
th report of Captain W.,c. i-angnu on
the river and harbor work done on Ore
gon streams during the month of March,
there la promise of a steady decrease
from now until a new river and harbor
bin- can pass providing funds for a con
tinuation of many projects which have
recently been suspended. The mouth of
the Columbia was the scene of greatest
activity. The workof removing the old
tramway, or such portions as have been
found unsound, is being pushed, the old
materials being replaced with new. Dur
ing Marcn, over 1700 feet of new track
was completed. Investigation has de
veloped the fact that the remaining tram
way for a distance ot 3496 feet will have
to be entirely rebuilt. All of the material
for its construction is on hand, including
rails, and as soon as the weather be
comes settled, pile drivers will be "run to
the forward end of the wrork and the new
Nothing is being done on Coos River. It
is reported that while the condition of the
main stream and the two forks is satis
factory, several obstructions, which give
more or lesa trouble to the small boats,
have formed at different points. The
funds available, .however, wllL not permit
of their removal.
Proposals "were received for repairing a
portion of the slope pavement on the
south side of he upper entrance to the
canal at Cascades, and the award was
made later -to Astberg & Peterson, of
Cascade Locks. Clover seed was sown on
the newly-graded slopes at the lower en
trance to the canal, and a number of trees
planted on the land separating the canal
from'" the Columbia River. Consfderable
English hawthorn hedge was1 also plant
ed during the month. The commerce of
the mouth passing through the locks
amounted to. 931 tons of freight and 1929
The dredge W. S. Ladd was engaged
throughout the month In excavating the
channel at Tongue Point crossing. In all,
34,545 cubic yards of material were re
moved, giving, at the end of the mdnth,
a depth of 20 J,eet, but for a narrow width
only. A number of applications were re
ceived for peVmission to erect fish traps
at various Idealities in the Columbia
River, and of these, Xi were forwarded
for action by?the Secretary of War.
The contractor who is improving the
Columblayetow Tongue Point has been
unable to make any progress since No
vember, because of the. condition of the
weather and of the rlverT He Is' now re
organizing his system andoverhaullng his
plant, with a view to beginning opera
tions "in April or early In May.
A local freshet compelled the closing
of the lock in the Yamhill during a large
part of March. The high water washed
out some of the protection behind the
revetment, but this was speedily replaced
and no damage resulted.
Captain Mills, In charge of the Wash
ington works, reports that, repairs to the
trestle and plant at Grays Harbor were
in progress during Marcji and were near
ly completed. Wharf repairs were also
completed. With' good weathfer, it Ms
hoped to .begin active work at this point.
The snag boat was busy on the S,kaglt
River clearing the 'channel at Bells Rif
fle and Steaklng Bend, between Mount
Vernon and Sedro.
A number of gauges were Installed
along the line of the proposed "Seattle
ditch," notably In Cedar River and Black
River, for making observations concern
ing water levels in Lakes Union and
Washington. The line of proposed dredg
ing Is being .inarked by stakes. It is
hoped to let the contract soon" for dredgr
lng the preliminary cut In Salmon Bay.
The dredge at Everett Harbor operated
throughout the month, removing 126,227
yards of material. At the same time
seme 13,646 piles were driven along the
line of the jetty.
$3 50 per month, or a total of $42 50 per
month. "Tbie is paid fn money and the
taty is at liberty, just as any citizen, to
make other arrangements for telephone
service for Its Fire Department whenever'
its best interests would be subserved
thereby. Aside from, granting the pro
posed franchise for 35 years for less than
nothing, the city Is to pay $100 per month
foor the chimerical privilege of saving- to
itself $40 per month. .
Third A fatal defect in the pending- or
dinance called fatal because,, this defect
should' kill It is found In the fact that
no limit is fixed to the rates that may
be charged by grantee or Its assigns for
telephone service rendered subscribers.
Maximum rates are fixed by law for rail
road and street car companies, and why
not for telephone companies? In these
days of trusts and combinations, there Is
need of the utmost vigilance on the part
of legislators to the end that the interests1
of the public be fairly protected. Should
this franchise be granted as proposed,
what assurance have the citizens of Port
land that the time may not soon come
when the grantee would control the tele
phone business here as it once did, and
make, such rates as it once did. that were
limited only by the ability of the sub
scriber to pay?
The City Council need not look far to
flpd precedents for limiting the amount
that may be charged" for telephbne ser
vice by persons or corporations engaged
in the telephone business.
Let the grantee have a franchise for
continuing its business here, but let it pay
the city a fixed percentage, either on its
net or gross earnings eac year, and pay
in money for its privileges. Let it be re
stricted in the amount it may charge the
city or any citizen for telephone service.
Let the city be left free to make terms
for telephone service, and to avail it
self of any improvements that may be
made from time to time, and pay Its
bills the same as the citizen does.
Or what is better yet. let this matter
be deferred until the Charter Commis
sion created by an act of the last Legis
lature shall have provided a new char
ter for the city, under the terms of which
the rights of the people shall, no doubt,
be better protected in these matters.
The Pacific States Telephone and Tele
graph Company ban continue to do busL
nesa here in the meantime, and the little
delay need not affect Its Interests In any
manner whatever. Respectfully yours,
FRED T. MERRILL,
Councilman Third Ward.

Council Street Sign Scheme Aronscs
PORTLAND, April 2S. (To the Editor.)
I have just finished reading in The Ore
gonian of a, proposition made by some en
terprising advertisers in the advertising
business. The City Council Is considering
it, and It Is to come up at the next meet
ing. The Superintendent of Streets, Mr.
Chase, has even made a talk on it from
the standpoint of the city's welfare, and
Is undoubtedly in favor of this privilege
being granted, whereby a citizen or any
other person may be able to tell what
street he Is on after he stands and finishes
reading about all kinds of soaps, cough
meaicines, sure cures ror bald heads, etc.,
Is noj the very thought of listening to
such a proposition as this enough -to make
a dog laugh? Why not rent the City Hall
for a bill-board? Or the fire trucks for pic
nic carryalls. If this scheme is adopted I
shall have presented a bill at the next ses
sion of the Legislature changing the name
of this town to Suckerville and there
ought not to be any opposition to the
measure. If this city is so hard up that
it cannot pay for street signs, I would
suggest a watermelon festival be gotten
up in the latter part of July and the pro
ceeds donated to a fund created for pur
pose of painting street signs. Yours,
Protest Agrnlnst Any Action at the
PORTLAND, April 30, 1901. To the May
or and. City Council, Portland, Or. Gen
tlemen: I herewith offer some objections
to the proposed franchise granting the
Pacific States Telephone and Telegraph
Company the right to "continue" to main
tain and operate a telephone and tele
graph system in the City of Portland for
a period of 35 years.
First The length of time for which the
franchise is proposed is too great. It is
contrary ' to public policy and therefore
against the Interests of the public for
I any City Council to grant concessions to
private corporations over which the city
will have no control for so long a period
of time. Great improvements in the
matter of communications by means of
the telephone, as well as other changes
affecting both parties to a. contract like
this, may take place long before the
expiration of time named In this ordi
nance, and the city would be powerless
to avail Itself of any such Improvements
Experience in other cities has demon
strated the fact that 20 years is the max
imum length of time for which such con
cessions should- be granted.
Second There is a deep-seated and well
grounded objection on the part of the
taxpayers of cities against granting valu
able concessions and receiving nothing in
return. The proposed ordinance - gives
away a great deal and brings nothing of
value to the' city. In fact, the city will
probably be compelled to Incur a consid
erably heavier expense than is now borne
In order to 'avail itself of the terms im
posed by the proposed ordinance.
The only consideration named in the
ordinance is an agreement on behalf of
the grantee to give the city the free use
of a 'switchboard at the fire headquarters
and the free use of a telephone at each
engine house and of the wires necessary
to connect the engine houses, one with
the other, but not with the grantee's
The approximate expense to the grantee
furnishing the city the free use of this
witchboard. wires and telephones, to-
ther with the maintenance called for
lnthe ordinances, Is, 6r rather would be,
about as follows:
Switchboard, equipped and Installed. .$100
Rent of 25 telephones, at, say, $1 each,
per month L 25
Maintenance, per month 15
PORTLAND. April 29. (To the Editor.
win you permit mc In a friendly way.
to reply again to the sermon of Dr. Wise,
published In The Oregonian, and also to a
remark found in Mr. Lord's published ser
mon. Dr. Wise speaks of the so-called
miracles in France at the shrine of Lour
des, and put the published miracles of
Jesu3 Christ upon the same level. Let this
be said about all the reported Popish
miracles. 1. The alleged occurrence of
miracles with Popish saints is mainly
supported by testimony produced a cen
tury after their death, when they were
being- canonized. Gospel miracles have
contemporary testimony. 2. The testi
mony of sUch Popish miracles was not
exposed to the fire of cross-examination.
Many witnesses of Gospel miracles' gave
their lives In support of their testimony.
3. There Is no aim In Popish miracles,
save the trivial one of placing a name in
the Romish calendar. The aim of the
Gospel miracles "is to dnow the divine au
thority of Jesus the Christ.
Dr. Wise puts but little estimate upon
Jewish .miracles. Well, the Christian
thinks very highly of them. Of course the
words of Jesus are more than his works
to " us. There is a God above physl-
cism, hence the question is taken out of
the limits of physlcism. A suspension of
a law is one thing, a modification of an
event or course of events under law Is
another. By the coming In of aoiew force,
and under the law pf forces, the course of
events is changed.
Why miracles do not .now" take place
as they did formerly Is rather from moral
than physical causes. After a professional
man Is .known in a neighborhood, he need
not have his pocket full of letters of rec
ommendation. Prophecy gone, miracles
gone, but "Now abideth faith, hope,
charity, these three." Creation -was a
miracle, and is God helpless among his
Dr. Wise says Jesus called himself the
"son of man." This Is true. "Son of
man" was rather the favorite expression
with Jesus because part and parcel of
ourselves. But when Peter called Jesus
the Son of the living God, he dared the
greatness of Peter's inspiration from
My dear friend Mr. Lord questions the
authenticity of John's gospel. It would
be impossible successfully to forge the
name of John to a gospel because of the
public position John occupied. Justin
Martyr affirms that John's gospel was
among the gospels read In all Christian
churches. Justin Martyr died A. D. 165",
and his life covered many years. Polycarp,
a hearer and disciple of John, quotes from
Jonn's gospel. Into the beloved John the
Master put his own spirit and life, and he
who lives the gospel according to John is
on the heights and looking above the
stars. B. J. HOADLEY.

No Counterfeiting; Outfit Found.
MONTAVILLA, April 30. To the Edi
tor.) The Terry correspondent of The Ore
gonian, under date of April 29, states that
a counterfeiter's outfit was found in Mon
tavllla in a building lately occupied by H.
W Lang, and that the secret service of
ficers took the outfit away.
I am the H. W. Lang referred to, and I
still occupy the only building that I ever
occupied in Monatvllla. and I know noth
ing of such an outfit being found In the
building, nor have I seen any of the secret
service men thereabouts, nor have I heard
of such a discovery elsewhere in Monta
vllla. H. W. LANG.
Piling for IiOg; Raft.
ST. HELENS, April 30. The Beaver
Dam Flume Cdmpany started up three
piling camps near Dalena yesterday. The
product will go to the Robertson Raft
Company at" Westport, wrhich Is con
structing an Immense log raft. The com
pany has about three-quarters of a mile
of flume to build In order to reach the
railroad, when It will commence running
lumber from its mill at Dalena. Wnen
the flume is completed, which will be in
about two weeks, piling will be landed

It must be remembered that the grantee,
while agreeing to equip and maintain e
switchboard for the fire department, does
not agree to operate the board. Should
the proposed ordinance become a law
of the city, the City Council would be
compelled in case the switchboard, tele
phones, etc., were accepted from the
grantee to provide for the expense of
operating the system, which would cost
not less than $100 per month.
Further, the grantee agrees to furnish
the use of this switchboard, the tele
phones and wires, with the maintenance,
on the express condition that the city
connnect with said switchboard and wires
such telephones only as the grantee may
furnish, thus depriving the city of any
opportunity to make better terms for

Parnrites Cause All Hair Troubles.
Nine-tenths of the diseases of the scalp
and hair are caused by parasitic senns.
The Importance of this discovery- by Pro
fessor Unna, of the Charity Hospital,
Hamburg, Germany . cannot be overesti
mated. It explains why ordinary hair
preparations, even of the most expensive
character, fall to cure dandruff; because
they do not, and they cannot, kill the
dandruff germ. The only hair preparation
in the world that positively destroys the
dandruff parasites that burrow up the
.scalp into scales called scurf or dandruff,
is Newbro's. Herplclde. In addition to its
destroying the dandruff germ Herplclde
is also a delightful hair-dressing, making
the hair glossy and soft as silk;
