PAK LING REACHES PORT
'.BIG CHINA MUTUAL LIXER -ARRIVED
HERE LAST EVENING.
IWIII Load a 200,000-Bashcl Cargo of
Wheat Portland StcnmbSatmen
Taking a Boat to St. Jlicliael.
After an absence of over three years
,f rom the port, the big China Mutual liner
Pak Ling arrived in last evening, com-
: fing around In ballast from Puget Sound,
.where she "was unable to secure a cargo.
She comes under charter to Balfour, Guth-
rie & Co., and will commence loading as
'soon as she can be lined. On her last
outward trip from Portland, the Pak
Xing carried 203,000 bushels of wheat, and
' Bhe will probably carry the same this
"With half of the month past, and no
signs of the overdue Brabloch and Dum-
frlessblre, it is apparent that the July
fleet will be much smaller than was ex
pected. The Nal shifted over to Vic
toria dock yesterday to commence load
ing, and the Argus commenced discharg
ing inward cargo yesterday. Neither of
'these' vessels will finish loading until the
,Pak Ling is out of the way, but both of
them will be ready for sea by August L
.This will make a total of four July ships
"with a capacity of nearly 600,000 bushels.
The Ecuador, which arrived ahead of the
SNal, was chartered for August loading,
'end will probably be carried over until
next month. Puget Sound's July fleet will
(consist of the British bark Eaton Hall,
land the China Mutual steamer Klntuck."

Ilng at Portland, and another at Tacoma,

line seems to be wandering away from its
J MAIXE SHIPBUILDING.
Business for the Present Year Is of
In the first six months of 1901 the Maine
'ehlpyards have turned out about- 25,000
tons net and 28,000 tons gross of new ves
sels, which indicates that the total for
the year will be In excess of that of 1900.
The returns for the six months ending
.June 30 show that Bath has launched
23,865 tons gross of all classes of vessels,
while other ports have launched wooden
vessels of the schooner type, aggregating
about 5000 tons.

aggregating 12,090 tons; seven barges, 76S4
tons; one ship. 2288 tons; one tug, 650 tons;
one steamer, 153 tons. The single ship in
the list is the Acme, a steel four-master
for the Standard Oil Company. Some of
the barges the Cardenas, Matanzas, Ha
vana and Sagua, are among the largest
wooden vessels of that type ever built,
carrying 3CO0 tons of coal each. They are
for the coal trade from Philadelphia to
Cuba, and a steel tug, the Cuba, 650 tonsr
has been built exclusively to tow them.
"Vessels now under construction at Bath
include the steel ship William P. Frye,
about 3000 tons; Ave schooners, aggregat
ing 500 tons; the United States monitor
Nevada, the cruiser Cleveland, the tor
pedo-boat Blddle and some lesser craft,
while the Bath Iron "Works has contracts
-for the battle-ship Georgia and a large
Bteel yacht for A. S. BIgelow, of Boston.
'At other ports in Maine Waldoboro,
Kockland. Camden, Belfast, Bucksport,.

j to St. Michael under her own steam with-
out an escort. The steamer Is to call at
Nanalmo for coal, and will then start
north by way of Juneau. The inside pas
sage will be taken asfar as possible and
'chances to cross open water watched for.
The steamer has been housed in and
braced for the long trip, and Captain
''Cox -has no fear that he cannot make the
-'trip In safety. The Casca Is the property
of Messrs. Brennan and Adair, of St.
Michael. Upon her arrival at St. Mich
ael she will be put on the run between
that port and Dawson. She was built by

THE SAME OLD HOBBY
BRYAN CRITICISES THE OHIO DEM
Says It Should Not Have Ignored the
Silver Question Declares He
Is Not a Candidate.
LINCOLN, Neb., July 15. In extended
comment on the platform adopted by the
Ohio Democratic convention, W. J.
Bryan criticizes the convention for its
failure to reaffirm the Kansas City plat
form and for what he regards as the
weakness of some of the planks It did
adopt. Mr. Bryan insists that the con
vention made a mistake in making him
self (Bryan) an Issue and says:
"Mr. Bryan Is not a candidate for any
offlce and a mention of him might have
been construed by some as an endorse-
MMHMM MMttMMMMt MMMMMt
ment of him for office. The vote should
have been upon the naked proposition to
endorse the platform of last year and
then no one could have excused his
abandonment of Democratic principles
by pleading his dislike for Mr. Bryan."
Referring to the platform he con
tinues: "The convention not only failed 'but
refused to endorse or reaffirm the Kan
sas City platform and from the manner
in which the gold element has rejoiced
over this failure of the convention, one
would suppose that the main object of
the convention was not to write fc. new
platform, but to repudiate the one upon
which the last National campaign was
"The gold papers assume that the con
vention refused to adopt the Kansas
City platform because it contained a sil
ver plank- If so, It would .have been
more courageous to have declared openly
for the gold standard. If the gold stand
ard Is good, It 'ought to haye been en
dorsed; if bad, it ought to have been de
nounced. To Ignore the subject entirely
"The money question is not yet out of
politics. Every session of Congress will
have to deal with It Republicans de
clare that it is dead, but they continue
working at it."
Mr. Bryan comments upon part of the
platform, especially those referring to
state and municipal affairs. He endorses
the nominee ,of the , convention and
urges their support Referring to the
Senatorial fight qnd'the reported candi
dacy of John R. McLean, he saysr
"Did the leaders ignore 'the money
question in order to please those who
bolted? Or does Mr. McLean want to
be left free to affiliate with the Republi

It concludes as follows:
"If any of the Ohio Democrats feel
aggrieved because the reorganizing ele
ment of the party triumphed at the con
vention, let them not visit their disap
pointment upon the state ticket, but
rather see to the nominations of Senators
and Representatives who will select a
trustworthy Senator. Let them see to
it, also, that the state platform is made
at the primaries next time, rather than
at the convention."

IDENTIFIED AS SLOUGH GRASS
New Specimen of Forage Named b'y
Oregon Scientists. -
J. B. Dlmlck, of Hubbard, who recently
,sent a specimen of a strange-grass, to1
Everdlng & Farrell, of this city which
no one here could name, has written to
them to say that the grass hasheen "lo
cated" by A. B. ,Leckenby, agrostologlst
of the Eastern Oregon station, of Union,
and also by Dr. James Withycombe, of
the Oregon Agricultural station, Corval
11s. Mr. Dlmlck says:
"It Is, however, a newcomer In these
parts. I have carefully watched every gress,
weed and even bug that has come on my
farm for over 20 years past, and this
year is the first time that this grass has
been discovered here. Many "thanks for
the interest your firm and The Oregonlan
has taken in the matter."
Mr. Leckenby says: "The grass is
becmannla erucaeformls, or slough
grass, is good for feed, and there is no
danger of its becoming a nuisance."
Dr. Withycombe says: "The grass is a
native of this region, and is frequently
found on beaver dams.' I scarcely think it
of much value as a pasture or hay grass
owing to a lack of denseness of leaf
growth." He also Inclosed the following
mls Host. Slough
grass (la Montana);
wild Umothr (In Ne
vada). (Fig. 16.)
A Btoirt, erect. , sub
aquatic perennial, 1 to
4 feet high, with nar
row, densely flowered
panicles. The leaves are
broad and flat, and the
stems are coarse but
tender, becoming some
what woody when old.
It grows along tho
banks of streams 'and
rivers and frequently
follows the course of
the Irrigating flitches.
Jhen. young, .however,
this grass Is palatable
and readily eaten by
stock. Ih some portions
of the Northwest, to
which region this grass
Is conflned In this coun
try, it often occurs In
such quantities -as to
constitute an important
part of the forage of
low pasture lands. It
may be recognised by
the peculiar, spike-like
urancnes 01 me pan

resemblance to the rat

Stanton. The suit) is brought to recover
their alleged shares of this alleged "sub.

GREAT STRIKE IS ON
(Continued from First Page.)
Amalgamated tlnworkers were Idle to
day, and when stocks now on hand are
used up the other employes will have to
quit and 300 will be idle.
"All of our men are out, and the con
dition for which we have been preparing
three years and more against which we
have repeatedly warned the manufac
turers, now confronts the latter," said
President T. J. Shaffer today. "The grat
ifying unanimity with which our men as
sented to the strike order Is a sufficient
refutation of the statements of Interested
persons on the other side of this .con
troversy that the strike ifl one of the
officials of the Amalgamated Association
and not of the men. As showing that
the lron steel and tlnworkers. appreciate
the gravity of the present situation, and
the imperative duty devolving upon them,
there are some works that we could not
reach Saturday night In promulgating the
strike order, and yesterday and this morn
ing we have been In receipt of Indignant
protest from these lodges inquiring why
they were not ordered out They are out
now, In fact all our men are out, and
the works of the three underlying com
panies of the. United States Steel Cor
poration are .tied up as tight as an estate
Jn an English chancery court. And so
they will remain until the companies
concede the Just demands of oUr men."
Secretary-Treasurer John Williams, of
the Amalgamated Association, saye the
action of the men all over the country
could not have been more congenial. Con
tinuing, he said:
"The manufacturers refused us the
right that they exercise themselves In
forming the combination. They used
force In some instances in securing
some of the old plants now In their com
pany. We do not propose to coerce men
into Joining our organization, but merely
ask for recognition, and I am certain the
men now at work in non-union mills will
voluntarily and gladly Join our associa
tion." QUESTIONS AT ISSUE,

Itself the Aggressor.

who has Just returned from Pittsburg,
where he attended the conference be
tween the steel manufacturers and tho
Amalgamated Association, said of the
the strike that the question at issue is
the right of the three companies to run
their own mills and to protect the men
who worked in them. No question of
wage Is Involved. Under this year's scale
the men are getting higher wages than
ever before. The company does not con
sider that it is the aggressor. The de
mand of the Amalgamated Association
is ..that every plant be made a union plant.
The companies offered to give the union
more mills than ever before, but insisted
on protecting the nonunion men in the
nonunion plants, many of whom do not
wish to become union men. Many of Uie
manufacturers who went into the com
bination owning nonunion plants do not
wish to have their factories run on a union
Mr. Arms did not care to say what the
effect of the strike may be on the steel
market. He said the company will ask
for no more conferences, but will be will
ing to meet the representatives of the
strikers If they have any concessions to
make, v He .was unable to forecast how
long the strike will last. The strike Is un
fortunate, he said, because the plants
were Inundated with rush orders.
The Federation o'f Labor Agreement.
'WASHINGTON, July 15. Secretary Mor-
.rison, of the American Federation of La
bor, today refused either to affirm, or deny
that there is an agreement, dating back
two years, between the Amalgamated As
sociation of Steel Workers and the Fed
eration of Labor, under which the former
can call out the steel workers of the' lat
ter when deemed necessary. -He, however,
"In the recent strike at Reading, where
.tfhe tube workers and iron and steel work
ers were concerned, not a man remained
in the mills. The same conditions un
doubtedly will apply to all the plants con
trolled by the trusts, if the adjustment is
not secured before the strike extends that
far. We have the tube workers organized,
and also the Iron and steel workers there
who are not eligible to the Amalgamated
Association. There is no question that
they will desire to come in under an
agreement and secure an increased com
pensation for their work at the same time
as the Amalgamated men."

NEW YORK WOMEN WHO SMOKE
Three Classes of Society That Pat
ronize the Cigarette Man.
It Is generally understood that the prac
tice of cigarette smoking by women Is
confined to two classes of the fair sex.
says the New York Tobacco Leaf. One
Is the lady of wealth and luxury, whose
position In society is so surely estab
lished that she can, figuratively speak
ing, blow her dainty clouds Into the very
faces of her stiff-backed critics without
fear of losing caste the other Is, well,
the demi-monde, who doesn't care a flip
what the world may say or think. Dur
ing my services behind the counter I have
seen much of both of these varieties, and
without any exception my women Cus
tomers have belonged to one or the other
of these two classes. My lady rarely does
her own purchasing. Usually she sends
her maid or her footman; sometimes her
husband or her brother keeps her sup
plied. But the belle of the Tenderloin
flounces in with no pretense of secrecy,
and calls for her favorite brand with the
same airy grace that she displays in or
dering a squab and a bottlo of St. JuIIen
at a Broadway chophouse.
But, according to a fellow dealer, who
keeps a store away down town, there Is
a third set of female lndulgers, and he
claims that It is growing rapidly In num
bers. It might be graded as the middle
class the workers for It Is made up of
girl stenographers who are employed In
the law and business offices Jn the lower
part of the town. Most of the smokers In
this grade are surreptitious lndulgers.
These girls, so far as my friend knows,
are of good repute, but their very po
sition makes it necessary to exercise cir
cumspection. Hence It becomes necessary
for them to make their purchases clan
destinely. "Most of my business with the
girl stenographers," said my friend, "Is
done during the noon hour."
"You see, the girls are afraid to buy
them' In the neighborhood of their homes,
because they are too well known. Again)
they dare not patronize the Broadway
stores for fear of meetinrr thplr omnintr.
ers or other men with whom they come in
contact in business circles. They usually
select a store on a side street and one
that Is never crowded with men. My
stand Is particularly well adapted. My
trade is steady and profitable, but it is
of a quiet nature and there are rarely
more than one or two customers In at
a time. I have 20 or 30 regular girl cus
tomers, and the funniest thing Is that
each of them seems to think that she
is about the only girl who buys from
me. One girl unless she Is teh only cus
tomer in the store) always asks: 'Is
there a package here for me?' Another
says: "A box of matches, please.' Of
course they know that I will understand.
Those who come so often that I know
their wishes, merely put their change on
the counter and say nothing. Despite
this apparent modesty, very few of them
will allow me to wrap the packages In
paper. They take them deftly from mv
fingers and invariably slip them under
their shirt waist bosoms. The typewriter
girls, as a rule, smoke Egyptian cigar
ettes; in fact, I have only two girl cus
tomers who content themselves with the
cheaper Virginia articles. At any rate,
they manage to burn up a goodly num
ber every day, and I can say without
exaggeration, that if I should lose my
typewriter trade It would mean a big
suce oi my cigarette business."
"When They Do Their Writing.
"How authors work." said a publisher,
"Is an interesting subject to me, and I
guess I am acquainted with the working
habits. of some 200 of them, living and
dead. Alphonse Daudet did his very best
work In the country In the Summer time.
He would take a little boat, row up a
quiet stream and, pulling Into a green and
shady cove, he would sit In the stern and
write with his pad on his, knees for hours
at a time. Rudyard Kipling works for
two hours every morning, from 0 o'clock
till 11, wherever he may be, on train, on
shipboard or ahorse, he contrives to get
In those two hours. Henry James works
at night, usually from midnight until 3
o'clock In the morning. He has become a
kind of machine, and turns out just so
many hundred words of his cold prose
each day. Mark Twain writes in a rock
ing chair, and the morning hours are his
favorite ones. General Lew Wallace
writes on a' slate, with a small, moist
rag beside him for erasing purposes. Ma
rlon Crawford uses a typewriter and
works In the afternoon, though not regu
larly. Crawford can grind out 8000 or 10.-
000 words of salable copy a day. Miss
Wllkins, George Moore and Joseph Con
rad are three artists who have no reg
ular working habits. This week they will
be at their desks all day and all night
nearly, while next week they will not
write a line."
