Eor'the Season to Date amount Is Nearly 16,000,000 Bushels. Fort Carlisle Given Q,ulclc DIpatch. 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. 1900-01-GRAIN FLEET FROM PORTLAND. Clearing Date.

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 lion Dollars. 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 -time. trj Aevr York Reaches Port. NEW YORK, April 30.

() Sallea the following month. 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 track laid. 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 passengers. 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. In "Washington. 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.

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., 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, FALLEN ALLOWS. Protest Agrnlnst Any Action at the Present Time. 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 or changes. 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 general exchange. 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 own creatures? 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 above. 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.

' 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.

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 In the slough near Quincy and lumber shippedr from Quincy by rail. 4Thls com pany has about r$25,00D invested.

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 telephone service for the next 35 years, or during such portion of the said 35 years as" the city may take its pay for this franchise In the manner proposed by the grantee. e grantee now furnishes the Frie De. pp-tsfent with 17 telephones at a rental of 5oci .y 'SSfete P .JT-JfilL. y3wvS7 W fjv'7 ffflA IHlr 8i3SlEd7 PACKETS OF TEN 10 LARGE SIZE 151 L.MILLER 8c SONS 543 BROADWAY.

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.
