TWO SHIPS ARE ENGAGED
POLTALLOCH AXD MAYFIELD, OVER
2100 TOXS EACH.

Up Saturday Tnrpenbeck Leaves
Two large vessels have been chartered to
load wheat at. Portland for Europe, the
Poltalloch and. "tie Mayfield. The Pol
talloch Is- the vessel which went ashore
near the entrance to "Willapa- Bay. After
she floated again, not long ago, she went
jto Victoria to be docked and repaired,
end then came around to the Columbia
Jtlver. She v has lain at Astoria
since her. arrival, about a week
ago.. She Is. a large vessel of 2139
tons! and will be a good addition to the
Portland grain fleet. The steamer Thomp
son will bring ier up "the river about
Saturday. The ship will be given prompt
loading and -will probably get away in two
or Ihre'e weeks, as there Is plenty of grain
The Mayfield, a British bark of 2176 tons,
Jeft Valparaiso July 2. 'She is thus a
vessel of jtist such a size as will help out
materially" in the new shipping record
which Portland Is going to establish this
year. Her rate Is given at about 40s 9d.
These two engagements' show the strong
position of freights at present and that
Portland -exporters are fully awake to
the activity of freights elsewhere on the
The German ship Tarpenbeck left Ham
burg yesterday for Portland. This ves
'6el safled with a cargo of wheat from
.this port In January, reaching Hamburg
In June. She is of 1793 tons, and on her
last trip carried 106.6GG bushels of grain,
loaded by Glrvln & Eyre. The rate of
her last engagement was 41s 3d.
BAItK AL CLEARS.
Starts Down the River With. 140,001
Bushels of Grain.
The German four-masted bark Nal
cleared yesterday for Queenstown or Fal
mouth or Plymouth for orders, and will
.Start do,wn the river this morning in tow
of the steamer Thompson. She is a ves
sel of 2627 tons, the largest grain ship In
port, and carries away a big cargo of
'wheat, 149,901 bushels, valued at 5S5.443.
.She Is dispatched by .Kerr. Glfford &. Co.
Loading of the vessel was consummated
In average time, about 19 days. The Nal
Is the third of this season's grain ships
to leave, the other two being the Mada
gascar and the Pak Ling, which took
away 126.052 and 19S.S63 bushels respect
ively. This year's shipments, therefore,
are already ahead1 of the season of the
year. The other six grain vessels In port
are idle, with the exception of the Dum
frleshlre, which Is working ballast. The
Iillston and the Galgate have not yet
begun to unload. The next of the ships
to get away will probably be the Argus
or the Dumf rieshire.
ANOTHER MARCH SHIP.
Arthur FltRcr Sighted Off Kinsnle
117 Days 0t.
Another of the fleet which left Port
land for Europe In March, the Arthur
Fltger, has passed Kinsale. She has made
a fast trip, after the style of the County
of Dumfries and the County of Linlith
gow, also March vessels. The Arthur Flt
ger left the Columbia River March 23,
making the trip In 117 days. She has a
cargo of 9G.S75 bushels of wheat, valued at
556.SS0, loaded by Girvln & Eyre.
The Arthur Fltger Is the fifth of the
March vessels from this place which has
reached port, and Puget Sound's ships
dispatched that month are still all at
sea, dragging along their barnacles and
oth,er marine growth, which are included
in the blessings -of a salt-water harbor.
A sample of the Puget Sound ships, the
Castle Rock, has just made port, after
nn extremely long voyage of 154 days.
She left Tacoma February 19, and just
pegged along until she got to the end of
JAMMED IX THE ICE.

aels Other Mishaps.
SEATTLE, July 25. A report came by
the Nome City that the British steamship
Buckingham Is in trouble at St. Michael,
having been jammed in the ice, but the
extent of the damage Is not known. The
transport Seward Is In distress, and will
have to be towed to Puget Sbund. Her
boilers gave out. and it was found im
possible to make repairs in the north.
The transport Warren was to start from
Nome with the Seward In tow on July 16.
Both vessels unloaded cargoes for the
Government, and are well on the way to
this city. The steamer Ruth, which was
crushed in the Ice in Golovln Bay in June,
is coming to Seattle in tow of the steam
schooner Brunswick. The Ruth is badly
damaged. Her propeller and .rudder were
nipped off In the ice, and a hole was
punched in her hull. She will be repaired
on the Sound.
OX XEHALEM BAR.
Steamer Louise Ran Ashore Will Be
TILLAMOOK, Or., July 23. The small
steamer Louise, which plied between Til
lamook City and Garibaldi, and which
was sold to the Wheeler Lumber Com
pany, went on the spit of the Nehalem
bar, and seas broke over her. C. H.
Wheeler and Joe Richardson were on
board, and had a narrow escape. It is ex
pected the steamer will get off this even
ing. Sailor Troubles nt Honolulu.
A Honolulu paper says: The union sail
ors have been hard hit by the shippers of
this port and are getting so much the
worst of the fight that they have had to
reduce the price of wages to $33 a month.
The shipping masters, Lewis and Turk,
raised their price for sailors to ?40 a
month about three weeks ago, and the cap
tains in the harbor needing men supported
them in their endeavor to freeze out the
union. That they nearly succeeded is
shown by the case of the ship Charles E.
Moody, which sailed from this port on
Saturday. Six men were shipped by the
union at a rate of $5 less than the regular
wages. Not being able to work their
graft here as they had been able to do on
the Coast the union finds that It Is hard up
against It here, and with nearly all the
captains In port against them and the
shipping men getting more money from
the skippers for the men that they ship
than the union, it Is plain to see that the
lead-pipe cinch that they thought they
had on the front Is broken.
Very LiprHt-Drnft Steamboat.
The light-draft steamer Chester Is at
Supple's yard for repairs. She was built
five years ago. and has been plying on
the Cowlitz "without a respite ever since.
She Is. perhaps the lightest-draft steam
boat In the world. When ilrst launched
she clrew, machinery and all, 5 Inches!
Her. draft now Is 7J4 Inches. Her con
struction Is so light that It was predicted
she. would shake to pieces, but she has
proved herself after five years of hard
service to be a practical model In every
way. She "will receive quick repairs and
resume her route as soon as possible.
Twenty-clj?lit Xew Ships.
There are at least 28 new steamships
now neing consiruciea ior ine leaaing
transatlantic lines plying between New
Yorkrand European ports, says the New
York" Journal of Commerce. Some of
these -axe practically completed and will
soon be placed in commission, while most
of them will probably be finished and put
Into service within the next, year or so.
Jour out of this number will carry cargo
exclusively, the others being freight and
passeriset steamers. Outside of the regu-
lar transatlantic lines there Is considera
ble activity also in the building of new
steamships, which will be used principally
in the freight carrying trade between this
and foreign ports. The principal reason
given by steamship men for this activity
is the Increase in commerce and In passen
ger travel and the growing need of mod
Building: of a Fast Steamboat.
Joseph Supple Is building for R. D. In
man a trim little steamboat which will
be able to hold Its own in speed with any
boat on the river. Its lines are marvels
of symmetry, and every turn they make
is calculated to offer the least possible
resistance to the water. The bow is as
sharp as a knife, and the stern folds back
Into remarkable neatness. The length of
the boat Is 67 feet and the beam is 9 feet
8 Inches. The frame Is set and ready for
the planking. The planking will be dou
ble, the first system running diagonally
and the second lengthwise. The boat will
be a duplication of qne in the East that
runs 18 miles per hour. Its boiler will
have 800 square feet of heating surface,
and will operate triple-expansion engines
attached to a 36-Inch screw, at the rate
of 500 or 600 revolutions per minute.
Londin? of the Strnthgryle.
According to present indications the
Strathgyle will take considerable time to
finish loading. She will receive 2,331,940
feet of lumber, treated with creosote,
besides as much of 1,800,000 feet as she
can accommodate. The treated lumber is
for Government use at Manila, and the
other consignment will fill private orders.
At present less than 100,000 feet of lumber
can be treated per day, by two shifts of
men, and since only about 600,000 feet thus
far has gone through the process, at the
present rate three weeks will be required
to finish the cargo. More vats may be
employed, and If this Is done the work
will be thereby facilitated.
Race Between Steamships.
NEW YORK, July 24. Two steamships
will clear from this port today for Aus
tralia, both at the same tlmefand report
has it that they are to race to their des

the Tyson Line, and the Devon, of the
American and Australian lines. In ship
ping circles much interest Is shown In the
The Ecuador moved across the river
yesterday to Victoria dock.
Captains Edwards and Fuller yesterday
made the annual Government Inspection
of the steamship Columbia.
The steamer G. M. Walker is at the
East Side receiving repairs. She will be
finished In a few days, and will go on
the Lewis River route.
Captain Young, of the German bark
Poltalloch, .has been In the city several
days, and will go to Astoria today to ac
company the Poltalloch to Portland.
The houseboat for workmen of the Port
of Portland dredge, recently finished on
the East Side, has been towed to the place
where the dredge is moored at the Wil
lamette Iron Works. The dredge is re
ceiving a new pump.
The upper'works of the historic Pioneer
boathouse have been razed and the float
is all that Is left. The obathouse was
moored for many years at the foot of
Madison street. It is now alongside the
Portland Rowing Club.
Repairs are In progress to the steamer
Leona, which broke her shaft a few days
ago. She will resume her run In a short
time. The Altona is on the Oregon City
run In her place, and the City of Eugene

College of Cardinals to Meet Soon.
ROME. July 25. Although the Pope is
In excellent health, the feeling prevails
at the Vatican that a meeting of the
college of cardinals cannot be far off, and
ltIs no secret that the candidates for the
papacy are making elaborate preparations
for this conclave. One of the chief char
acteristics of the -next conclave, accord
ing to a high prelate, will be the large
number of candidates for the chair of
St. Peter. A first scrutiny is expected to
show six or seven cardinals being favored
for the pontificate. Those who are well
Informed anticipate a deadlock, and the
ultimate selection of an outsider who has
not? yet been mentioned.

"I transmit my annual report to you

shall take occasion, however, to say that

The teachers of the county are earnest

of the state course of study and adapt
them to the various local conditions. In
many Instances these plans have not been
well understood and our work during the
year has been directed chiefly toward se

in Its enforcement. In this work I have

"If I were to point out what I consider
the weakest place In the schools of our
county, It would be the meager supply
of supplemental reading matter In the
majority of our rural schools. More than
half of them are entirely without any
supplemental reading matter, or 'library
books, while nearly all of t'nem are sup
plied with costly charts and apparatus,
whlcn are of little use.
"The work of supplying our schools
with suitable library books and supple

taken up and a number of the districts
have made substantial progress la this
line during the year, but we have only

trust may be continued until every boy

of any franchise-holding corporation-, etc.
BBefore the debate began Mr. Mills of
fered an amendment "that within one
year prior to the expiration of such grant
or franchise, the question as to whether
or not the city shall acquire or take the
same shall first be submitted to the
voters of the city." This was accepted
Mr. Mills spoke In favor of the com
mittee's report. He said in part:
"The fertile imaginations of some of
the members of this board and of some
of our worthw citizens have been con
juring up frightful nightmares over this
section. Some of them have been wag
ging their heads and predicting that the
city was about to be plunged Into chaos,
and the advocates of the section have
been dubbed socialists, demagogues, agi
tators and doctrinaires. The fears of
these men are groundless. In the first
place the day when the city can possi
bly acquire these properties Is put far
in the future, and the right JLs surrounded
with such safeguards as to render It
merely a protection of the city's Inter
ests. Personally. I do not favor munici
pal ownership, nor do I believe that the
committee which has drafted this re
port does, but we do believe that the pro
visions here Incorporated are for the
city's best interest.
"Let us look into this matter, and see
what has caused the chills and v f ever
which seems to be affecting these gentle
men. Will they contend for a moment
that the period of 25 years is not long
enough for this city to enter Into a con
tract .with some corporation? Can. they
peer into the future and declare that the
conditions existing when a 25-year fran
chise was granted will be the same at
the end of that term, and that in view of
that fact the term could in justice and
equity have been made longer? Not at
all. But if we cannot look into the fu
ture, we certainly can the past, and
utilize Its lessons for our guidance.
"Mr. Chairman, It is 19 years since
I first set foot in the city of Portland
Then It was a city of 22,000 people. A
single horse car jingled up First street;
the city was all huddled together, and the
regions Into which street care now run
were almost a virgin forest The Alder
street gulch divided the two streets
where now run two prosperous street
car lines. What have we today? We
have 200 miles of Improved, streets; street
railways run Into every suburb suburbs
that were not dreamed ot in those days;
four transcontinental railroads center.
here, and our population nas more than
quadrupled. Will any man, In view of
the growth of these 19 years, dare to
say that contracts of this character made
then would 'meet the conditions of today?
Much less will any man dare to say that
a contract should be made for the fu-
ture, binding posterity, will be too short.
On the contrary, have we not every rea
son to believe hat conditions will change
with greater rapidity In the next 25
yearsr than they did in the past 19? In
fact, 1 ,can almost fancy that the boys
of today, grown to man's estate In 25
years, will blame us for making con
tracts that bind them without their con
sent. Bonds Are Not Required.
"One of the favorite' objections urged
to this section is that with the short
term bonds cannot be floated. Mr. Chair
man. I doubt whether bonds are neces
sary. If an enterprise .requiring a .fran
chise Is a worthy one, I believe that lri
the vast majority of casco money can be
secured' on a stock basis. Bonds have
been a curse both to the city and to the
individual. It is to be regretted that we
have gone into debt with ease, and
shouldered the burden off onto posterity
by means of bonding. You hear corpora
tions complaining that their stock will
not pay dividends. It Isn't to be won
dered at when the stock is merely wind
and Tvater, while the bondholders absorb
every dollar that the corporation may
make over and above Its actual running
Mr. MIKs went on to say that there is
no real difference so far as this phase of
the subject is concerned as to whether
the term is fixed at 25 years or 30 years.
as suggested by Mr. Holman. The ques- j
tlon, he said, Is merely one between the
promoter and the Investor as to whether
the enterprise would pay. Continuing, he
safd that he could see no reason why
any member should object to any com
pany holding a franchise paying a fair
compensation for the same, as well as a
percentage of Its gross' earnings. The
matter, he said, was" simply a partnership
between the city and the corporation,
where the city contributed Its streets
and a right to use them, while the cor
poration furnjshes the equipment. The
city is entitled to Its percentage of the
Taking up the question of the city's
right to acquire the property at the ex
piration of the term, Mr. Mills declared
that thla simply gave the city the right
to make'a trade that might be beneficial,
or not to make it in case it promised, to
be otherwise. This, he said, was a plain
business proposition of protecting the
city's interest. Conditions at the expira
tion of the term would govern In the
premises. Ha pointed out the safeguards
surrounding' this proposition, viz: the
consent of a majority of the qualified
electors of .the city in case it is pro
posed to take the property without com
pensation, and of two-thirds of the elect
ors In case any debt Is to be. Incurred.
"I cannot see any harm in this section,"
declared Mr. Mills In conclusion. "I can
not see how any one can oppose It unless
he allows his own selfish Interests to
blind him to the interests of the city."
When Mr. Mills concluded Mr. Holman
made" a short speech in which he re
sented the insinuation of selfish motives
made by Mr. Mills in his speech. He
declared it to be his belief that Mr. Mills
had not intended to ascribe Impure mo
tives to any one, but that the fact that
he was unaccustomed to public speaking
had caused him to go farther in the zeal
of his argument than he should have
gone. Mr. Mills said nothing In reply.
J. A. Strowbrldge made a speech In
favor of Mr. Holman's motion, and Mr.
Teal followed with a defense of the re
port, saying the committee had cart
fully considered vested rights In drafting
the proposed provisions. Tyler Wood
ward declared his opposition to the re
port and Dr. Harry Lane supported It
warmly, going farther than any of
the others, and declaring that he was
not afraid of municipal ownership.
After the debate closed the vote was
taken, with the Tesult stated, and the
commission adjourned for a week.
To n Lost Love.
Stephen Phillips. .
I cannot look- upon thy grave.
Though there the rose Ai sweet;
Better to hear the long wave wash
These wastes about my feet!
Shall I take comfort? Dost thou live
A spirit, though afar,
With a deep hush about thee, 'like
The stillness 'round a star":
Oh. thou art cold! In that high sphere
Thou art a thing apart.
Losing In saner happiness
This madness ot the heart.
And -yet, at times, thou still shalf feel
A passing breath, a pain;
Disturbed, as though a door In heaven
Had oped and closed again.
And thou shalt shiver, while the hymns,
The solemn hymns, shall ceaie;
A moment half remember me: '
Then turn away to peace.
But oh, forevermore .thy look.
Thy laugh, thy charm, thy tone.
Thy sweet and wayward earthllness,
Dear,' trivial things, arc gbne!
Therefore I look not on thy grave, v
Thdugh there, the rose is sweet;
But rather hear the loud wave wash
These wastes about, my .feet.

yet been made by that very discreet and
observing gentleman. He stated that the
committee appreciated the tri-state dem
onstration in favor of the open river, and
that, after seeing the unity, zeal and per
sistence of the people In asking for the
improvements, the committee felt better
equipped to go into the subject. He urged
upon the people the necessity of creating
sentiment In favor of river improvements,
stating that appeals for such help, when
backed by an undivided public sentiment,
were seldom rejected. Mr. Burton stated
that the trip had been of vast benefit to
the committee in giving them a better Idea
of the needs and the resources of the
country than It was possible for them to
have secured without a personal Inspec
tion of It.
His remarks regarding the amounts
needed for the Columbia River were brief
but very much to the point. The Lower
Columbia would require approximately
?2,500.CO0, and the manner In which he
alluded to the unquestionable necessity
and the merit of the appropriation left
but little doubt that this would have his
heartiest support. The Upper Columbia
from The Dalles to Celilo would require
from $4,000,000 to $5,000,000. The speaker
ventured no particular sentiment as to
what support this would receive at the
present time, but acknowledged In a gen
eral way the merits of the project. Mr.
Burton had everything at his finger tips.
He gave the estimates from Celilo to Rl
parla as $267,000. From Riparla to Lew
iston, $23,000. Regarding the Improvement
from Lewiston to Pittsburg Landing, his
remarks were quite encouraging to the
Lewiston. people. He stated that the cost
of improvement of the 80-mile stretch in
volved would be nominal, and that con
ditions had vastly changed since an ad
verse report had been made serine time
ago by- Government engineers. The Im
provement in this particular case would
afford relief to a section which was now
without transportation facilities.
31 r. Toigcue Enthusiastic.
Hon. Thomas H. Tongue, who delivered
the response to the closing toast, "Pacific
Northwest and the Rivers and Harbors
Committee." was very enthusiastic over
the possibilities for an open river to the
sea, and closed an earnest talk with the
statement that one of the greatest
achievements that could be credited to
the service of an American statesman was
that of having caused the opening of the
rivers from Lewiston to the sea.
Congressman Tongue was the victim
of some unjust censure on the previous
visit .of the committee to the Northwest,
but his judgment has been amply vindi
cated by the success of the present trip.
The only objection' raised by Mr. Tongue
to making the up-river trip when the
committee was here In June was the fact
that they had but one day at their dis
posal for the trip. This would have been'
so short a time that It would have been
impossible for them to have made even a
slight examination of both the Snake and
Columbia Rivers, to say nothing: about
viewing the country tributary. That the
committee spent three days between Lew
iston and Portland Is due almost entirely
to the efTorts of Mr. Tongue, as all of
them were tired and anxious to reach
their hemes, and nothing but his persist
ence caused them to give the big river
as much time as they have In the past
Mr. Moody's Speech.
Hon. M. A. Moody, to whom was as
signed the subject "Celilo and The
Dalles," spoke as follows:
' "Mr. Toastmaster: Had your commit
tee been as ''well acquainted with me as
my constituents, or even my Congres
sional colleagues, with whom I have
served but one term, you would not have
placed me on your programme for a
speech. I am not a public speaker, and
do not even make after-dinner speeches.
The torJlc assigned to me 'Celilo and The
Dalles' Is of such vital interest to my
constituency, and one in which I am so
heartily Interested, that I am constrained
to make a -few remarks expressing my
deep appreciation of the kind considera
tion of the committee in extending their
visit to the Northwest, to enable them
personally to inspect the obstruction to
navigation on the Upper Columbia and
"My constituency, representing, as they
do, all the counties of the state border
ing on the Columbia River, and Its navi
gable tributaries on the south, excepting
that portion of the Willamette below the
south boundary of Multnomah County,
are unanimous In their demands upon me,
as well as upon my colleague, who not
only represents our state on the rivers
and harbors committee, but has the honor
and distinction of being the only mem
ber on that Important committee from
the Pacific Coast, that we use our ut
most endeavor to bring the rivers ana
harbors committee to realize the Import
ance of removing the obstruction at The
Dalles and Celilo, this being the only
obstruction on the Columbia from the sea
to Priest Rapids, a distance of practically
"It Is for this purpose that the com
mercial as well as the Congressional dele
gations of the States of Idaho. Washing
ton and Oregon united In requesting the
rivers and harbors committee to extend
their visit In the Northwest so as to en
able them, by personal examination, more
fully to appreciate the Importance of the
Columbia and Its tributaries as National
thoroughfares, and to realize that, by the
aid of Congress, not only the producer,
but the consumers Df the whole North
went will receive greatly appreciated
"Now that the committee has kindly
cranted our request, we of the State of
i Oregon come to assist your citizens of
Idaho in making the delegation's visit
enjoyable and to help them to secure the
Information they are patriotically seek
ing. When they take their leave ot the
enterprising citizens of Lewiston it will
be our pleasure to pilot them down the
Snake River, your chief highway, po far
as the present stage of the water will per
mit. Then we wll undertake, and I hope
succeed. In showing them that the amount
required to make Snake River navigable
from Lewiston to Wallula will be an ln
'slgnlflcant amount for the benefits It will
bring to your commerce. From the moiith
of the Shake we will show them the Co
lumbia, and Its navigable course, until we
reach Celilo Falls, at the head of The
Dalles Rapids, the only obstruction to
continuous navigation from the Pacific
Ocean to Priest Rapids, a distance of
approximately 500 miles.
"Congress has had various propositions
to overcome this barrier to free naviga
tion before it for consideration in the
past 25 years, but the only project au.
thoVlzed was that of the ship railway,
which was secured by -the united efforts
of the delegations from the States of
Idaho. Washington and Oregon, and was
rjassed as an amendment to the rivers and
harbors bill In 1892. This project, not orig
inally favored by the House committee,
was. finally authorized, according to the
records, for immediate relief, presumably
because tb,e $7,000,000 which was then the
estimated cost of a canal seemed prohib
itive until our commerce had further de
veloped. The latest estimate by the Gov
ernment engineers of the cost of the ca
nal to overcome the Celilo and Dalles
Rapids has been reduced to $1,000,000, and
as our commerce tributary thereto in the
past 10 years (since the ship railway was
