Miller Writes Con- cernlng an Industry That Would Be Profitable Here. Powder Has Supplanted HbbhiI Labor in RemoTlng Stamps. "Farmers -who have considerable lano clearlns t odo in Oregon and Washington, have largely discarded the old method of digging stumps out by hand, and now blow them out with powder. The blast ing process Is quicker and cheaper, as 25 to 50 rts worth of powder will throw a sood-slzed stump Into the air and at the same time split It into splinters, so that to Chicago. The difference in cost of pro- Tit can be easily burned. In the old way, J. W. Bailey, State Dairy and Food Commissioner, Is trying to secure a con densed milk factory for Portland. This Is the outlook in a nutshell: Portland buys from 35 to 50 carloads of condensed milk every year from the East. It can be made here cheaper than it can be boughf. auction is so largely In Portland's favor set apart each year as an Improvement and BSTTerment fund, and the man who fails to give heed to the call of the association, after once being made ac quainted with Its merits, makes so grave an error as to reflect upon the soundness of his business Judgment." FOR CLIARING LAND. MAKING A NLW CHARTER COMMISSION EFFECTS TEMPORARY - oRGAiazATibir.' that Orepon-madc condensed milk could 1 around the stump, and as a man's time is be eold In Chicago at a handsome profit after paying transportation. But the Pacific Coast would furnish a large market in. Itself, and with the Ori ental market, which can easily be reached, the field is ample for all that Oregon can produce for some years to come. On the n-bject cf trade in this article with China, Mr. Bailey yesterday received the following letter from Henry B. Miller, Consul at Ching King, but temporarily at Shanghai: -, Shanghai, China, March 9 In accordance with your request, I have made further Inves tigation concerning the prospects for an .In crease In the condensed milk trade of China. Z find that considerable of the condensed milk coming to China Is used by the Chinese, and dealers inform me that the consumption is rapidly growing, and they believe that It will reach immense proportions. It Is now carried In stock by Chinese dealers far Into the Interior, -as well as by those in the treaty ports. The Easle brand ems to be most In de mand amongst the Chinese. They prefer the sweetened -variety. "Very little condensed cream is used by the natives. The trade In condensed milk in China must be looked after from two standpoints the de mand of the foreigners and that of the na tives. The natives do not care for any but the sweetened varieties. Fancy colored labels on the cans (of flowers and figures) will add to the attractiveness and increase the sales. In the matter of character of labels, it should be noted that the Chinese admire flow ers, birds, fishes, animals, human figures and scenery. A farm scene with cows and calves pleases them greatly. It would also be a good idea- to have Chinese characters for milk on the labels. Much success has been met with In Increas ing sales o foreign things In China by Judi cious adv ertlsing. Certain kinds of pictures are very attract ive to the Chinese, and many of our common advertisements are hung up In their houses as works of art. A proper use of Chinese writing on these advertisements -Rill make them ery effectlv e. It Is not an uncommon thing to see common foreign advertisements peddled about the streets for sale. The fentlment that exists amongst the Chinese In favor of the use of milk offers a good field for lncreaslns the sales of Ameri can condensed milk by Judicious advertising. Pictures constitute the best method of ad vertising amongst the Chinese One of the important Influences in causing the Increased consumption- of condensed milk In China Is the sentiment that the Chinese have regarding It. They class milk with glnslng In its powers to revive youthful characteristics to old age. At the beginning of "Winter milk Is much sought after, as It is considered very stimu lating and fattening. It is used mainly during the "Winter months, and as Spring advances Its use Is lessened, and in Summer time it Is abandoned. In the interior of China cows' milk and goats' milk are sold during the Winter months for 800 cash, or one Mexican dollar, per month for a dallj allowance of a pint. It is very poor stuff, and generally watered and adulterated to the utmost. The Chinese are learning to use condensed milk for baby food, and as this use is ex tended, as it no doubt will be, the consump tion will show a marked Improvement. As a matter of advertisement of condensed milk to the Chinese, I would suggest two lines, one Indicating its virtues as baby food, a picture of a child at a mother's breast, and the other thought would be Its value In giv ing sleekness and youthful vigor to old age. These advertisements should be prepared by a compentent Chinese scholar. A novice or poor scholar would be certain to get the char acters of such form as to either make them offenslv e or to conv ey a different meaning from that Intended. I Inclose jou the characters that signify con densed milk and those indicating the effect of its use, viz , giving J outhf ul qualities to old age. There Is a very -small amount of milk used In China in proportion to the population It is one of the luxuries, and not many of the great mass of population are able to buy It. The use of milk by the Chinese being con fined almost entirely to the "Winter season, naturally prevents the development of dairy industries, and seems to Insure a permanent and growing market for condensed milk as fast as it is Introduced to the use and atten tion of the millions of China. a man m!gb spend several days digging worth more than It used to be, this same stump might easily cost $5 or $6 to. dis lodge. -A farmer In speaking on the subject yesterday, said one man could blow out 50 J to 100 stumps a day, by the aid of modern explosives. He did not favor a heavy charge under a stump, but pre- Coraralttees Created to-Outline the Wcrk-and Report. Rales of Procedure. A meeting of the Board of Charter Oom m!ssIoners,was held, pursuant to the' call of Mayor Rowe, at 2 P. M. yesterday, in the Council Chamber of the City Hall. Temporary organization was effected and committees were created to formulate a plan for a charter, and provide rules and .regulations or the meetings of the board. The meeting was called to order by Mayor Rowe, who moved that," A. L. Mills -be elected temporary chairman. The motion carried and Mr. Mills took the -seat. On motion of J. N. Teal, H. W.

Nlckum, a property-owner and res ident of Sellwood, has offered to donate a site for the proposed stove manufac turing plant oa Johnson Creek at Wllls burg. He will give the large building which stands on the ground for the use of the factory. Last evening the parties Interested in the plant went to Sellwood with D. M. Donaugh, J. M.

The ground Is a short distance north of the site donated by Richard Scott for the Portland woolen mill, and Is near the main line of the Southern Pacific. Mr. Donaugh said last evening that the de tails connected with the stove factory enterprise would be set before the Sub Board of Trade at Its meeting Friday night, in Campbell's Hall. Assurances are given Mr. Donaugh that the site donated by Mr. Scott for the woolen mill will be accepted, and he considers It reasona bly sure that the mill will be built at Sellwood. A. N.

In this way the stumps could be reduced to ashes where it grew and no teams would be necessary to haul the long roots away. "Very few accidents have thus far oc curred in the process of stump blasting, as farmers are practical men, who realize the danger of explosives, .and if a man doesn't exactly understand how to go about the business, he calls on his neigh bor, a short distance away, who does. Thus, even the primitive vocation of a land clearer has kept pace with the world In labor-saving methods, and an acre of woods can be cleared cheaper by blasting than under the old system of contracting the work to Chinese. HONOR OVER MUCH. Oregon Clny Modeler Tells Some of the Secrets of the Art. Y. M. C. A. FUND. One Month to Raise the Remaining $15,500. The Cleveland, O., papers tell of the raising of a debt of $114,3S2 on their Young Men's Christian Association building in SO days. The Cleveland Leader speaks of the movement in these words: "All debt-clearing records for Cleveland have been broken by the Young Men's Chris tian Association. Thirty days ago the indebtedness of the association was $114, 3S2 It, and today the association has a surplus of $7 40. The finance committee had 30 days in which to collect subscrip tions. A. coterie of gentlemen well known in business and philanthropic circles bent their energies to the task before them with a determination that swept away all obstacles and which resulted in free ing the association from debt for the first time in seeral years." In New York City the association has recently paid off all the debts on all Its branches, amounting to $300,000, giving the organization 52,000,000 worth of unincum bered association buildings In NewYork City alone. The local association Is making an ef fort to raise $45,000 to pay the debt on the Portland building, and make greatly need ed additions and improvements. The only way -that this can now be accomplished Is for the public-spirited citizens to come forward and subscribe the remaining $15, 500 needed. This must be pledged be fore June 1 or all the subscriptions given so far, amounting to $29,500, will be void. Several years ago W. S. Ladd offered the Portland association the quarter block where Olds, Worrman & King's store stands, on condition that $73,000 be pledged to erect an appropriate building, and the undertaking fell through because the last $12,000 could not be secured. If the pres ent effort Is successful, the association will have a $90,000 down-town property entirely out of debt, with a three-story pressed brick building 100 feet square, pro viding a good equipment for present needs of the association with its 100 members, 330 men in educational classes and 650 using the gymnasium. It Is esti mated that the present building is used to a greater or less extent by over 3000 men. James H. Eckels, the president of the Chicago association, who visited Portland with the Chicago party of business men, said these striking words a short time ago in an anniversary address: "The appeal which the Young Men's Christian Assoclaition from time to time makes to business men Is not and ought not to be regarded as ar appeal for charity. It is. Instead, the asking of an expenditure on the part of those to whom the request Is addressed as legitimate to the furtherance of their business enter prises as that which is Incurred for po lice or fire Insurance or any other lay out which has regard for the protection and preservation of their property Inter ests. It is as essentially legitimate, and yield;, as much In return, as the very money paid to the employe himself. In short, It Is a sum which ought to be SILVERTON, Or., April 29. (To the Editor.) Allow me to acknowledge the kindly write-up of myself which appeared in the Daily Oregonian of Saturday, the 27th Inst, and while I duly appreciate the favor of bringing my art before the public, by Oregon's great newspaper, I fear your reporter has done me honor over much. At any rate, I feel It in cumbent upon myself to modify some of the statements therein, for they will place me In a false position, which artists and connossieurs will, readily see. It is quite common for artists to make busts from pictures, and especially for Professsor French to do so. The difficulty of getting satisfactory results from photographs is when the pictures are visibly contradictory, and many of them are. The camera never tels any lies; it gives the features and ex pression as they were at the sitting, and if a person wishes two, to look alike, he must be in the same mood of mind and feeling, and present the same cast of features to the Instrument. It Is a com mon experience that photos of every-day acquaintances are sometimes barely rec ognizable, and through no fault of the artist, either, but because the sitter was in an unusual frame of mind, and pre sented corresponding cast of face. "When different poses of such photos are firesentedto the bust-maker to work from, heji.-ftls trouble begins, and It Is a marvel it success is acnieveu. ouui .a we ven dition of the Monaghan pictures.

The informal reception to John '. Caples, ex-Consul to Valparaiso, In the Sunday-school room of the Ta lor-Street Methodist Church last evening was the occasion of the assembling of a large number of that gentleman's friends. As a prelude, the hymn "Blest Be the Tie That Binds" was sung. Prayer and thanks were offered for Mr. Caples safe return after four years' absence in Chile. Mr. Caples was warmly welcomed In a neat speech by W. Y. Masters, who re ferred to the guest of the evening as onei of the oldest members of the Taylor-Street Church, and one who has been a promi nent figure In Its history and progress. Mr. Caples thanked those present for the manffestation of good will and referred to his having traveled over 25,000 miles since he left Portland, four years ago. He spoke of the changes that took place in the church membership while he was absent from Portland, and paid tribute to the worthy members who "were called away from earth. He mentioned several of them by name and dwelt with fervency upon their lives and works. "America" -was sung by the audience and the reception ended with the serving of refreshments. Bronaugh, P. L.

Honey man and Ned E. Ayers 8. Mr. Teal moved that the chairman be authorized to appoint two committees of seven members each, one to formulate a plan for a charter, the other to prepare rules and regulations to govern the meet ings and the proceedings of the board. "He said that In his opinion the laying of foundations for the charter 'was the most Important work the commission had to do, and this might be facilitated by the ap pointment of a committee to formulate a plan. Mr. .Holman moved to strike out of the motion the committee to formulate a plan for the charter. He said this was only a temporary meeting and several of the members were not present. He thought any attempt to formulate a charter should not be made until after permanent or ganization had been effected. Mr. Morgan, as a substitute for the two previous motions, submitted the fol lowing: "Resolved, that the meeting pro ceed at once to an informal consideration of the powers vested In us; second, to decide what preliminary work, if any, can be done previous to a permanent or ganization; third, in what manner the said preliminary work, if any, may be done. He moved the adoption of the resolution. There being no second to this motion the chairman announced that a vote on Mr. Holman's amendment was In order. Mr. Montague asked If It was intended for the proposed committee to formulate a charter, or only the outline of one. Mr. Teal said the Intention was for the committee to formulate a general plan or outline for a charter and to submit it to the committee. This seemed to Him 'In the line of expediting the work of the commission. If the commissioners do not approve of the plan submitted they 'could reject it. Chairman Mills asked the secretary to read the law creating the board, which was done. Mr. Holman's motion to amend Mr. Teal's motion by sticking out the com mittee to formulate a plan for a charter was then put and failed to carry. Mr. Teal's original motion providing for the appointment of two committees of seven members each was then put and carried. The chairman asked for time to consider his appointments and said he would make them as soon as possible and notify the members. A motion was made to adjourn, subject to the call of the chair. Mr. Holman opposed this and moved that the meeting adjourn to a stated time. Several favored this idea, and finally the meeting adjourned till May 14. at 2 P. M. gon. A hotel clerk who expects to use ills homestead right, said yesterday: "I sha!) g.t mj a quarter upon which there Is 7,000 000 or 8,000,000 feet of good Oregon fir. 1 can cbtain title by simply sleeping on the place once In six months, while thi Improvements I put on will not be verj expensive. By and by I can sell my quarter rction to a timbr syndicate for $3000 and thus make quite a raise by a 1'ttle effort. I have already secured a quarjer in Washington, under the Tim- bp. Land aci, at an outlay of $100 and I refused $3000 for It the other day." William Rasmussen, a prominent lUm-. ,berman of La Crosse, Wis., who Is at the,j imperial, preaictsa pig demand for Ore gon lumber in the East within a few years. "The pine of the Southern States," he 'said yesterday, "Is inferior to the Ore gon fir and lasts only about two years, when exposed to the weather. The pine of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota will be pretty well exhausted within four or five years, and then the East must look to the Pacific Coast for its structural timber." Mr. Rasmussen is In Oregon with a view to purchasing timber lands while they are cheap. Threw Hot "Water. Mrs. M. Randolph, who lives on the sec ond floor of the building, 390 East Oak street, threw hot water on children who were playing on the back porch. Some of the water went on the face and Bhoul ders of Grace Beach, and a little fell on Althea Berry. There are two housekeep. ing apartments on the second floor of the building. The porch In the rear pro jects over the slough, and is divided for the use of the occupants. Mrs. Minnie Barrett occupies the rooms at 392, on the east, and Mrs. Randolph has the west side rooms. The children of the former were having a party and were playing on their side of the porch, when, they say, Mrs. Randolph came out with a pan of hot water and threw it on thern The children said they were playing on their side of the porch when the water was thrown. Grace Beach, who received most of the water, said It burnt her se verely, but the other child got only a little sprinkling. Mrs. Barrett was very indignant, and the matter will probably get into the courts. tjsri OF SIX, WEEKS beffinnlag Monday, July x, will be conducted la one of the rooms of the Portland Business College, corner Park and Washington streets It will be strictly a school of study, designed to aid teachers to higher srades-ln the August ex. iminAtian.

Educational Meetings for Parents. R P. Robinson, County School Super intendent, is arranging an educational gathering for Montivilla, to be held in one of the churches next Friday even ing, for the benefit of parents. The regu lar Institute for teachers will take place Saturday in the Montavilla schoolhouse, but, as parents cannot attend during the day, the evening educational meeting will be held for their benefit, so they can learn what is being done In the public schools. An Interesting programme will be given. Professor Robinson will make an address, urging the necessity of close sympathy and co-operatIon on the part of parents toward the public schools, and expla.ning some of the problems that have to be met in educational work. He has found these gatherings helpful, and will continue them all over the county. TO ,CARRY ASIATIC MAILS. Chamber of Commerce Favors Con tract for O. R. & N. The trustees of the Chamber of Com merce decided, at yesterday's meeting, to take steps to have the Portland & Asiatic Steamship Company awarded the contract for carrying the United States mails be tween Portland and Asia. This Is the line which the O. R. & N. Co. has put on the Pacific. It has three big ocean greyhounds in Its fleet, and others will be added as they are needed. The line will cost the O. R. & N. Co. foOO.000 a year. While there will be very little money In the mall contract, Portland's prestige will be increased if Its own steam ship line carries the mail. , A letter from the Merchants' Asso ciation of Seattle asked co-operation, in an effort to obtain night rates on tele graphic service between Pacific Coast and Eastern points, which do not have this rate. The trustees Indorsed the pro posal and President Hahn will appoint a committee to take up the matter with the telegraph companies. County Hay and Potato Crop. "Vernon A. Billion made an extended tour In Eastern Multnomah County the first o'f the week, to look over hay and potato prospects. He reports the outlook very encouraging. Lasl year's crop of 'hay, he aays, has been disposed of, and only a few of the farmers have potatoes on hand. Mr. Billion was-4n Plpasant "Valley, Damascus, Gresham and nearly to Pleasant Home, and everywhere he ound the hay crop looking excellent. The worms cut Into the clover somewhat, but he does not think the damage Is very extensive. He found the farmers happy over the outlook. Theymade a substan tial prQflt on th'eir hiy and potatoes last season, and, with a still larger crop and a good market for all they can raise in prospect for this season, they feel very Jubilant. Evangelical Conference. The ministers of the Evangelical Asso ciation of this state are gathering for the annual conference, which will meet Fri day morning in the First Church, East Sixth and East Market streets. Last night services were conducted by Rev. F. Culver, of Jefferson. This evening the junior preachers will have their examina tions for admission. This evening serv ices will be conducted by Rev. A.

A' DAY ON THE COLUMBIA RIVER. IRON STREET SIGNS. Stole Choice Roses. The meanest case of low-lived theft and vandalism reported this season comes from J. M. Miller, who lives at East Nine teenth and Burnside. Monday night, 18 rosebushes, each the choicest of Its va riety, were removed from his grounds. They were 3 years old, and had been transplanted In a straight row four weeks ago, hence the work of removing them was comparatively easy. Dr. Sanford's Liver Invlgorator. The best liver medicine.

They "Would Be Cheap, Jicat and Permanent. PORTLAND. April 30.-(To the Editor.) Regarding the recent proposal on street signs, embodying an extensive advertising scheme which your paper referred to as being received Tlth some favor, the" argu ments in its behalf, 'so far as-efficiency and economy are concerned, seem consis tent, but does it not Involve objections of a very radical nature? It appears to be primarily at variance with the self- respect of an able-bodied city: By adopt ing such an arrangement the city at- once proclaims Itself unable to meet Its le gitimate expenses and places Itself in the same category with the farmer who pre fers to have his barn look like a store house for "liver pills" or some similar product, than to Incur the expense of painting It himself. Then again, there are numerous corners where there are neither trees or posts. Under such con ditions many citizens do not object to the location of a small, neat sign on the corner of their house or store, but the 9x29 inche signboard proposition would Im pose a serious tax on a man's loyalty to his city's needs. Providing the city determines to take up the work, it is evidently a matter of considerable expense, and Is worth doing well. The various suggestions thus far .offered for wooden and sheet metal .signs, do not seem to hold out much' libpe for permanent economy- Would It- not be better to have cast-iron signs 4x14 Inches and of sufficient thickness to give fair strength? The letters should be fiat-faced and well raised above the back-ground. A Inches - A visit to Portland is Incomplete with out devoting at least one day to the Co lumbia River and its magnificent scenery. You can leave Portland at 9 A. M. any day on the O. R. & N.

Schaeffenberg, of Mount Tabor, says he has sent to the Old Country for 300 Bohemian pheasant eggs, which he pro poses to set under bantam hens in an effort to stock the state with this line of the pheasant family. It Is expected that at least 75 per cent of he eggs will be received in good condition and will hatch, although they will have to be transported many thousands of miles. He undertook to secure the eggs of gray partridges from Germany, but there Is a law In that country against the exporta tion of the eggs. East .Side Notes. J. C. Byrnes, foreman of the O. R. & N.

A Trained Nurse Discovered Effect. No one is in better position to know the value of food and drink than a trained jiurse. Speaking of coffee, a nurse of Wilkes barre. Pa., writes: "I used to drink strong coffee myself, and suffered greatly from headaches and indigestion. While on a visit to my brothers, I had a good chance to try Postum Cereal Food Coffee, for they drank It altogether In place of ordi nary coffee. In two weeks after using Postum I found I was much benefited and finally my headaches disappeared and also the indigestion. "Naturally I have since used Postum among my patients, and have noticed a marked benefit where coffee has been left off and Postum used. "I observe a curious fact about Postum used among mothers. It greatly helps the flow of milk in cases where coffee Is in clined to dry it up, and where tea causes nervousness. "I find trouble In getting servants to make Postum properly. They most al ways serve It before It has been 'boiled long enough. It should be boiled 15-or 20 minutes, and served with cream, when It is certainly a delicious beverage." Mrs. Ella-C. Burns, 309 E. South street, Wilkes barre, Pa. WEATHER CONDITIONS. A few smair showers occurred in California.
