WILL MAKE-ASCENT TODAY
MAZAMAS' BIG PARTY TO HOOD'S
Twenty-live Men and Women "Went
to the Top "Wednesday Glacier
Ranted for Held.
CAMP MAZAMA (renamed Camp
O'Neill), Thursday morning, July 18.
(Special mounted messenger service.)
Today Is one of preparation for the cllnjb.
The camp is being moved to the timber
line so that tonight, Trhen the, hardened
and budding Mazamas roll in between
their blankets, the mountain side will be
dotted with sleepers dreaming of poising
themselves, alpenstock in hand, over
dizzy ascents, or sliding down long in
clines between yawning crevasses. Xes
tcrdav was a day of several interesting
events. The first was the successful
climb of Mount Hood by a party of 25,
led by O. C Yocum, the veteran guide.
The second was the exploration of Zlg
Zag Canyon and the Sandy River glacier
by Professor Henry Feldlng Held and a
small party. He made several interest
ing discoveries. In the first place. Zlg
Zag glacier was found to be no glacier at
all. Sandy River glacier was found to
be a small affair of not much import
ance, and a large glacier heretofore little
known that Is located on the ridge that
can be seen from Portland, stretching
down from the summit, was found to be
a glacier of some size and importance
in the work of carrying off the mountain
snow. Last evening, on motion of "Will
G. Steel, this was named Reld glacier, as
a mark of the esteem In which the Ma
zamas hold Professor Reld. The latter
found traces of what may prove on in
vestigation to be a new crater for Mount
Hood, near Reld glacier. More explora
tions must be made to decide this point.
The traces of the lava flood are there.
Tivcntr-nve Make tlie Ascent.
One of the most successful ascents of
the mountain ever made, which was
achieved yesterday, has greatly encour
aged the Mazamas. Today they are
looking forward to the climb with re
stored confidence, the Rawson incident
having shaken a few. The following per
sons, in their order of arrival at the
summit, made the ascent yesterday:

Every One Reached the Top.
The trip was remarkable In that not
one member of the party failed to reach
the summit, and In the. fast jtlme in which
the ascent was made. Starting from
Camp Mazami at 4 A. M.. tlie climb was
begun. The party proceeded with mili
tary precision. Guide Yocum was in the
lead. He set a slow, steady pace, ac
commodated to the weakest climber's.
Crater rock was reached by S:15. There
an hour of Test was spent lolling in the
heated rocks, eating lunches and snatch
ing a quiet minute's slumber. At 9:20 the
party pushed on to the summit over the
most difficult part of the climb. The
arete on the hog's back was in good con
dition, the snow being hard and well
packed. The "great crevasse was crossed
over a snow bridge, and from that point
on Guide Yocum, with his ice ax, cut
every step of the way. Step by step, as
each was cut, the members climbed, care
ful to preserve a solid footing by aid of
their calks and alpenstocks. The sum
mit was reached at 1:15 P. M. In the fore
going order. All had stood the climb
remarkably well, the women In the party
keeping up with the leaders and arriv
ing in good spirits.
On the top of the peak it was bitter
cold, and only a short stay was made.
Twenty minutes were spent in admiring
the panorama that suddenly burst upon
them. St Helens, Rainier, Adams, were
seen peeping up with their snowy heads
in the distance. The silver streak of the
Columbia River could be traced as far
as the smoke of Vancouver. Below the
precipitous cliff could be seen Cloud Cap
Inn, and down the mountain in that
direction apparent traces of an ascent.
On the south side of the mountain the
wind had covered the foothills stretching
toward Jefferson with a smoky haze, out
of which that snowy peak lifted its head
In occasional rifts, while the whole moun
tain was clothed In a gauze of an intense
The descent was difficult, and lifelines
were utilized. The crevasse was crossed
)safely, and the exhilarating slide begun
on the west side of the arete toward
Crater rock. The party then climbed over
itho arete, and a long slide was taken
down towards the head of "White-River
glacier. Crossing west again toward the
Devil's Den, which was sending up sul
phurous fumes, the slide down to the
timber line was made with hardly a break,
although the snow was getting soft By
4:30 the entire party was back in camp,
. "without a member being excessively
Dr. Young, of Seattle, said yesterday
that It was one of the most pleasant
mountain climbs he ever witnessed. Every
one in the party obeyed orders, and the
fine condition of the snow field, the arete
and the snow bridge over the great
crevasse made the conditions of the ascent
most favorable. Dr. Young, C. H. Sholes,
who leads the party tomorrow, and O. C.
Yocum carefully Inspected the mountain
pide, and adopted the route over which
they will take the Mazamas.

GLACIER NAMED FOR REID.
Baltimoie Scientist Makes Some Ob
. servntlons on tlie Monntain.
The campfire Wednesday night was one
of the best the Mazamas have ever had.
President O'Neill made a few preliminary
remarks, in which he referred to the many
history-making events, international and
otherwise, that had taken place since the
Mazamas' previous campfire on Mount
Hood, seven years ago. He said that this
would probably be the last campfire of
the present outing, since Thursday night
camp was to be broken up, most of the
party going to the timber line with their
blankets for the night to sleep under the
open sky, in order to get a good start for
the climb up the mountain side Friday
morning. It was probable, therefore, that
all of those present would never meet
again around a Mazama campfire. Mr.
Steel later in the evening remarked that
it was possible they would have have one
of their merriest campfires Friday even
ing, after the ascent
Mr. Reld then gave a highly Interesting
and important account of the results of
the day's excursion to Sandy and Zig
zag glaciers. He said that it was some
times easier to tell what one did not see
as there was more of it than what one
did see, but in the present case the ex
ploring party saw something they did not
expect to see. The route to the summit
was followed part way and then the party
had turned to the west about half way
from the timber line to Crater rock.
There were two things they wished to see,
Zigzag glacier and Sandy glacier. The
first of these they found to be merely a
snow slope, as Mr. Gannett had said.
His opinion was therefore confirmed. The
Sandy, which is put down on the map
as quite a large glacier, is really not so
important after all. It Is, however, really
a glacier. As one passes over the snow
It looks perfectly white, but as an actual
fact it is not. During the process of
evaporation the dust collects so that the
next year a layer of dirt may be found,
making the snow quite dirty In appear
ance. Mr. Reld's opinion is that there Is
rather a small amount of ice in Sandy
glacier, making it, relatively speaking,
an unimportant glacier. In the course of
a -month or six weeks the end of Sandy
glacier will probably be uncovered. It
runs down into the canyon like White
River glacier. There are, however, no
moraine deposits, and It Is inferred that
White River glacier is more important
than Sandy glacier.
The core of Mr. Reld's talk .came with
his description of the deep canyon which
they encountered as they passed on to
ward the north. The sides of this canyon
were of lava, evidently a great flow of
liva had poured out and hardened, and
this canyon had been cut out from it
Whereas deposits of cinders were charac
teristic on the east and south sides of the
mountain, this side was characterized by
the. lava flow, making the topography
wholly different, "Illumination rock" and
sharply Jutting crags being the charac
In this deep canyon lies a glacier. This
is the side of the mountain that is visible
from Portland. The two sides of the
canyon slope out quite like a gable In
shape, making the peculiarly beautiful
outline which is so familiar to Portland
people, and so entirely different from that
on the south side. This glider, which
has so far remained unnamed, and White
River glacier are the most Important
glaciers Mr. Reld has yet had an 6ppor
tunity of viewing, his observations hav-

ing so far been confined to the south half
of the mountain.
This glacier heads up close to the sum.
mlt of the mountain, and is quite a col
lecting ground where the snow has ac
cumulated in large masses. Some of the
snow which we see on Crater rock really
does not come down to Sandy glacier, as
might naturally be expected, but to the
Another Crater. ,
The ridge which runs across from Il
lumination rock and the general appear
ance of the canyon at Its head, said Mr.
Reld, gives indication of another crater,
situated on the side of the mountain
turned toward Portland. The extensive
flow of lava on the side confirms the
theory. The view from below, as Mr.
Reld has so far seen it, is, of course,
foreshortened and therefore much is ex
pected of the opportunity to look at it
from the top of the mountain downward,
as will be done Friday when the climb
to the summit will be made. This dis
covery is a highly Interesting and im
portant one, and not iTIe Mazamas alone,
but all Oregonlans, will naturally feel
greatly Indebted to Mr. Reld for his
valuable investigations of the mountain.
Another interesting discovery is the fact
that there are remains of a forest In this
canyon, great trees like those we are
familiar .with in the typical Oregon
forest, having at one time grown in the
canyon, evidently at a time the crater
was in action. These trees were covered
up by an eruption and destroyed by cin
ders. The water afterwards eroding the
canyon exposed them to view.
Mr. Reid concluded his remarks, which
were listened to with the greatest eager
ness, by thanking the Mazamas, In a few
strong and sincere words, for the cour
tesy and consideration they had Extended
him during his stay In camp, saying that
he had never enjoyed heartier cordiality
or hospitality, and had never had a better
time in his life than during this outing.
It was voted upon and unanimously de
cided that this unnamed glacier should
be named Reld glacier, in honor of Mr.
Reld's valuable work on Mount Hood.
And this was done, in spite of Mr. Reld's
modest protestations that he had not dis
covered It, but simply found that it had
no name! One other glacier Alaska
bears Mr. Reld's name.
MEL WINSTOCK IN JAIL.
Former Portlnnder Charged "With
Larceny in New York.
Melvln G. WInstock, who formerly lived
In Portland, and subsequently went to
Seattle, where he engaged first in news
paper work and later in the practice of
law, is in -jail In New York City on the
charge of larceny from an alleged client.
WInstock left Seattle about two years
ago, and went East His departure from
the Sound was due to the fact that he
became involved in a very questionable
divorce case, commonly called the Van
Alstine case. A newspaper exposure of
his work in that case, followed by an at
tempt to disbar him, igere the actual
causes of his leaving. The New York
Sun of July 13 has the following to say
concerning his latest escapade:
Melvln G. WInstock, who Is said to have
alleged that he was a lawyer, with offices at
37 Nassau street and who said that he lived
at 106 West 113th street, wis arraigned before
Magistrate Deuel Tln the Centre-street Police
Court yesterday morning on a larceny charge
preferred by William R. Halpln, of 257 West
Forty-fifth street, a prisoner In the Tombs
awaiting trial. William L. Marks, 23 years
old, of 21 Surf avenue," Coney Island, who
Is Wlnstock's clerk, was arraigned on a sim
ilar charge also preferred by Halpln. WIn
stock and Marks were both committed to the
Tombs In default of ball, the former being
held under 15000. the latter under $1000.
Halpln said to reporters that, while await
ing examination in the West Side Court, WIn
stock Introduced himself and stated that ho
could obtain Halpln' s release on bail for
$500. Halpln declares that he not only gave
"WInstock a check for $500 oa the Flfth-avenuu
Trust Company, but that on Saturday morn
ing he gave Marks a check for $100 to turn
over to his employer, after the latter hap;
represented to him that that additional
amount was needed to "Insure protection
against the Lezow and Gerry Societies," whose
representatives, Halpln declares Marks as
serted, Mere going to t prosecute him. Not
withstanding the expenditure of $000, Halpln
failed to obtain his. release.
Lawyer Grenthal, who represented Halpln,
exhibited a roll amounting to $2500 and de
clared that he was going to the City Cham
berlain's office to ball his client out.
Lawyer Philip Waldhelmer appeared for
WInstock and Marks.
The- city directory shows that Clarence "WIn
stock lives at 106 West 113th street. ,
"VVlnstock said to reporters that he had don
nothing which was not upright and honor
able. "It is true," said he, "that I received $600
from this man, but I did the best I could for
him, as I agreed to."

We have yet to chronicle the first case
of the punishment by Mr. McKInley of a
Federal officeholder for the violation of
the civil service law. And tfhere have been
many cases of flagrant lawbreaklng dur
ing his term of office. He knows all about
them, for his attention has been called
to them in the most pointed fashion.

PORTLAND'S LARGE SHARE
SHIPPED ONE-TENTH OF ALL
AMERICAN WHEAT EXPORTS.
Government's Official -Figures Make
a Good Showing; for This , City
Light Oriental Flonr Shipments.
Portland shipped one-tenth of all the
wheat that was exported from the United
States for the fiscal year ending June 30.
Th's showing was made in spite of the
nearest approach to a crop failure that
the Willamette Valley has ever known.
The report of the Bureau of Statistics,
which came to hand yesterday, gives the
exports from the United States for the
year as 131,497,890 bushels, of which Port
land shipped (including 59.924 bushels
which went to San Francisco for reshlp
ment) 13,103,924 bushels. This is a decided
gain over the previous year, both in the
amount shipped and In the percentage as
compared with other ports. Last year the
total exports from the American ports
were 101,715,183 bushels, of which Port
land exported but 8,955,544 bushels. The
figures for Portland would have been
nearly 1,000,000 bushels greater, had the
fleet of ships under charter for this port
got around In time to load as they were
expected to. As It was, about 1,000,000
bushels of wheat which had been collect
ed at tidewater from May-June shipment
was- carried oyer into the new season.
The shipments for the different ports for
the years ending June 30, as given in the
report of the Bureau of Statistics, are as

LIGHT FLOUR SHIPMENTS.
Plague In Hong Kong Is Playing
Havoc With the Market.
Steamships sailing from Pacific Coast
ports for the Orient within the next few
weeks will take out about the lightest
flour consignments that have gone for
ward at any time In the past four year?,
and, were it not for a slightly better feel
ing ' In Japan, the Oriental flour trade
would come to a dead stop. "Mall advices
from Hong Kong under date of June 24,
and Yokohama advices to July 2, were
received in this city yesterday, and the
Hong Kong story is a tale of woe. The
plague is paralyzing trade in even' di
rection, and has never before proven so
generally fatal. The result Is that the
better class of people, who are In a po
sition to do so, are leaving Hong Kong
with all possible haste. It was estimated
that up to June 20 fully 70,000 residents
had left the city to escape- the plague,
and business of all kinds was at a stand
still, while the flour trade was suffering
worse than anything else.
There was stjll on the date mentioned
1,200,000 quarter sacks of Oregon and
Washington flour, and 225,000 quarter sacks
of California flour, on the Hong Kong
docks, with daily deliveries so small as
to make scarcely an impression on the
big stocks. There were also some pretty
good-sized consignments afloat and ex
pected within a short time, the Knight
Companion, from Portland, being due
with 125,000 quarter sacks, and a number
of smaller shipments close at hand. The
only new business Intimated from the
Chinese metropolis is an occasional small
order for some special brands, which have
sold out to an established trade which
will take no others.
From Japan reports are a little more
favorable, but the finances of that coun
try are not in the best shape, and their
buying is on a limited scale. The Hong
Kong merchants are all expecting lower
prices, and with so much stock weighting
down the market, they are not liable to
be disappointed. The steamship Indra
yelll, sailing early in August, "will take
about 20,000 Jbarrels, but practically all of
it goes forward "on old account

has thus far been about as unsatisfactory
as that on the Columbia. Commenting on
the outlook, .the Victoria Colonist says:
"The salmon were late h running, the
cold, cloudy weather which has marked
the earlier part of the Summer having
seemingly been responsible for this. When
the Louise left there was promise of a

river was that of the British-American
cannery, "which had packed 2000 cases,
but this cannery,, has a .large number of
boats over those employed by otrjer can
neries. The other canneries on the
Skeena had packs ranging all the way
from about COO to about 1000. All were
lighter than at this time last year. At
Rivers Inlet and the Naas. and at Prin
cess Royal and Namu also, the salmon
were not plentiful, and small packs were
the result" At Alert Bay, too, the back
ward run had resulted in a shortage over
the pack on the northern river at this
time last year, ""but as the fish were re
ported to bo commencing to run in the
northern inlets, and the run Is always

THE BONITA IS IX TROUBLE.
Inside the Yamhill River Bar and
Cannot Get Oat.
The little up-river steamer Bonlta is
having trouble with the Yamhill bar. In
a trip a few days ago the capstan pulled
out as she was being hauled over the bar,
knocking one man into the wet and strik
ing several others, but none was serious
ly injured. The Bonlta remained fast the
better part of a day until the Altona
came along and hauled her off. Having
gotten safely out, they tried it again on
the next trip. The' entrance was easy,
but while in the river fell, and so the Bo
nlta Is yet behind the bar or bars, an
unhappy position with her, whether sin
gular or plural. The captain has sum
moned the local Road Supervisor and
crew to his aid. They have a couple of
road-scrapers, with wagons and other ap
purtenances, busy digging a channel of
escape. It Is reported that this channel
will be only wide enough for the Bonlta,
so she will have a cinch on Yamhill River
freights until high-water time. It is fur
ther proposed that she be renamed the
Gopher and equipped with a plow or two
and a few agricultural huskies as assist
ant engineers. With a bucket of water
and a road-scraper the Bonlta could go
overland to Kansas or anywhere.

dead near Nome, It having evidently been
killed by wha'lers from another vessel

dition, and no attempt was made to get
the oil, its head being cut off and the
bone extracted. The Belvedere is the only
one of the fleet now out that saves whale
oil, the others saving only the bone.
"Whaling at present has lost many of the
features of olden days, 'and the present
cheapness of whale oil has caused many
vessels to go out on a season's cruise
without any barrels on board.
One remarkable feature of the cruise
of the whalers In northern waters this
year Is the fact that while the Ice pack
remained In St Michael harbor, Norton
Sound and Port Clarence Sound later this
year than ever before known by record
keepers, and continued cold weather pre
vailed In all these waters, the Ice went
out of Behring Strait earlier this year

little Ice, and they were greatly sur
