THE MORNING OREGONIAN, ,SAHUKJJA.r SEPTEMBER 14, 1901.
PS SAME OLD THING
Government Is Still Working
PUGET SOUND PORTS FAVORED
Commercial Bodies "Will 3Iake n
Effort to .Stop tlie Discrimina
tionSan Francisco Also
Portland merchants regard the adver
tisement of Quartermaster Huhlen, of
Seattle, for 4000 tons of oats and 2500 tons
of compressed hay, especially the pro
vision for Seattle or Tacoma delivery,
as another evidence of the Government
discrimination against this port, which
manifested itself in the Philippine trans
port service. Portland, San Francisco,
Seattle and Tacoma are the principal
ports on the Pacific Coast. All are able
to sell supplies to the Government at
reasonable prices and. in the opinion of
merchants, all should have an equal show
at the business. But the Seattle Quar
termaster is giving Pugct Sound all -the
show. Portland, the cheapest of the
ports, is given no chance to bid and San
Francisco's chance has a string to it
Quartermaster Ruhlcn's determination to
give Seattle the best of it is shown
by the following conditions which he
imposes upon bidders:
Proposals for the delivery of the supplies
herein called for at San Francisco, Cal.. ha
also been invited. The Government will re
serve the privilege of accepting delivery at
such place or iriaces as may be mot advan
tageous to Its interests, cost of supplies offered
and rate and facilities for transporting same
to Manila being considered.
Dellverr of the foregoing herein called for
will be required in about equal quantities at
Seattle and Tacoma. "Whenever it can be
arranged the convenience of bidders in re
gard to place of delivery whether at Se
attlo or Tacoma will bo taken into considera
tion; but the right is reserved to require
delivery at either place, at the Quarter
master's option, when the Interests of the
Government makes this necessary to secure
proper storage room.
Delivery of oats will be required -on board
cars or on ship or lighters alongside Gov
ernment wharves at Tacoma and Seattle,
"Wash. Each bidder should state where he
proposes to deliver the quantity named in his
bid, and aso the length or time he will re
quire to furnish the same. Delivery of entire
quantity offered must bo completed on or be
fore October 10. 1801.
Tho hay required must be merchantable
Puget Sound or Eastern "Washington timothy
bay of the b-st grade, perfectly sound and free
from weeds, sticks or rubbish.
The discrimination in favor of Seattle
is so manifest that even the San Fran
cisco papers have begun to protest
against it and the Portland commercial
organizations will take it up. Seattle
merchants expect to charge the Govern
ment from 518 to $20 a ton for the hay
and $23 a ton for the oats. In all. about
5140,000 will be disbursed on Puget Sound
for the forage for which Quartermaster
Buhlen lias advertised, and Portland has
been given no opportunity to bid except
at a disadvantage. Portland couia fill
the order -at prices close to $17 50 to $17 75
a ton .far hay and $22 a ton for oats. The
dtavowmsSnt could save -several thousand
dollars "by goading the" required supplies
The discrimination of the "War Depart
ment against Portland last year is a
matter of history. Of $6 transports loaded
on the Pacific Coast, 51 were sent from
San Francisco, 30 from Puget Sound and
Ave from Portland. The freight which
was brought -from the-East for the San
Francisco and Puget Sound transports
could have been landed at Portland and
put aboard the vessels at as low cost as
at San Francisco or Seattle. The ex
penses of the steamers are no greater at
this port than at San Francisco or Se
attle, as nearly all the vessels were
under charter on the per diem basis,
-which gave the Government freedom to
send them to any port for their cargoes.
Early in the year the Government re
voked the order sending the Thirty-fifth
Segiment to Portland and followed up
with an order giving Seattle the best of
it in the matter of loading the Kintuck.
As the War Department has "set
ways," it probably Is too late to do any
thing with Quartermaster Ituhlen, but
an effort will be made to prevent such
discrimination in the future. Sentiment
among Portland merchants is voiced In
the statement which President Hahn, of
the Chamber of Commerce, made yester
day. He said:
"'There 1s no doubt that there is a
studied effort to discriminate against
this port. We do not know at, whose
door to lay the blame, but we feel that
this matter should be fully Investigated,
and our delegation in Congress should
leave no stone unturned to correct the
abuse. I can see no good reason why
our people should be compelled to sell
their forage for $1 to $1 50 less per ton
as they must do in the face of the pres
ent discrimination, when they sell to Pu
Bornard Albers, of the Albers & Schnei
der Co., will protest to Senator Mitchell
against the discrimination in favor of
Seattle. He said last night that his firm
will make a bid for the supplies for
which Quartermaster Ruhlen has adver
tised. ALASKA'S NEW CAPITAL.
Rev. G. M. Irvrin Tells of the Pros
pects of Juneau.
G. M. Irwin, ex-State Superintendent
of Public Instruction, is at the Imperial,
having arrived from Juneau yesterday
morning. He is now publisher of the
Alaska Record-Miner, having resigned
his pastorate of the M. E. Church of
Juneau several months ago.
Mr. Irwin likes Alaska and Is content
to make Juneau his permanent home.
""The climate," he said, "is not at all
disagreeable and last Winter the coldest
we had was six degrees above. The
stationary temperature was about 30, or
a little under the freezing point, but
there was a lot of snow. By early Spring
tills snow packed down to a solid mass
five feet deep, but It disappeared within
10 days when the temperature rose to. the
"Juneau is bound to be the metropolis
of Alaska, as all travel has to go by
there, and last Congress made it the
capital of the territory. Next Congress
will probably provide for the removal of
the officials and archives from Sitka, and
then Juneau will be tne oclal, as it is
now the business center of Alaska. The
mining business, now only in Its Infancy,
is destined to become a great industry,
and so my mining journal is being pub
lished In the right place for future busi
ness.' In reference to the sinking of the
steamer Islander, which went to the bot
tom within 10 miles of Juneau, Mr. Ir
win said there was no doubt about the
cause of the accident being due to a
dfuriken captain and pilot. "It is well
established," he said, "that there was
a. Jamboree going on in the cabin at the
time the vessel struck. The captain pre
vented the pilot from heading the vessel
-for -the-beach, and so.the loss of life was
unnecessarily heavy. The proportion of
women and children lost shows there
was no order or discipline after the
crash. The marine authorities at Van-
couver, B. C, , seem to be trying hard
to exonerate those in charge of the vessel,
but the people of Juneau think they know
who was to blame in the matter."
Mr. Irwin will remain In Oregon for a
few weeeks, attending to business mat
ters and visiting friends, before return
MANY TROOPS ARE MISSING
The Situation In Colombia Is Very
WASHINGTON, Sept. 13. The Consul at
Maracalbo, Venezuela, has informed the
State Department, under date of August
31, that no disquieting news has been
received from the State of Tachira, but
that the situation on the frontier of the
Indian territory of Lagoagira is very
grave, and that large bodies of Colombian
troops are missing. Several small fights
between them and the Venezuelan troops
have taken place and many wounded
have been brought to Maracaibo.
Kecruitlng is going on daily, animals
and steers are being taken for government
service, and the commerce of the region
The Colombian Legation last night re
ceived a long cablegram from the State
Department at Bogota, the Colombian
capital, reporting everything quiet there.

SIGHTED OFF THE COLUMBIA LAST EVENING.
News was received from Astoria last night that the cruiser Philadelphia had been sighted off the Columbia about 5 P. M.
The Philadelphia has on board 70 members of the Naval Reserve, under Lieutenant-Commander R. E. Davis. She left Astoria
September 0, and was to have relumed Wednesday. The reason for the delay of -two days in the return of the cruiser Is not
and a lack of official news regarding the
bombardment of Rio Hacha by the Vene
zuelan tleet. The Legation has received a
letter from the Colombian Minister at
Quito, JScuador, dated August 28, saying
that the Ecuador Government has given
him the most friendly assurances of an
Intention to maintain strict neutraltly to

credence to this report of Ecuador's neu

COLO;, Colombia, Sept. 13. The steamer
Alexander, Bixi.,, belonging, to the French
Trans-Atlantic .-Company, left Curacao
September 4 for Colon, by way of Sa
vinalla and Cartagena, and was due here
September 8. Her nonarrlval at this port
is causing much anxiety. There are no
means of communicating with Savlnllla
and Cartagena, and It is surmised that
the government is enlisting the Blxlo
in the transportation of troops.
Affairs at Boeas del Toro continue un
changed. There has been practically no
fighting. Commerce, however, is still suf
fering. ANXIOUS DAY IN LONDON.
Stream of Inquirers at the United
LONDON, Sept 13. All day long
anxious Americans streamed into the
United States Embassy in the hope
of obtaining later news than was
contained In the newspaper bulletins. In
addition to the Americans, many prom
inent Englishmen and colonials called, the
former 'including Schomburg McDonnell,
principal private secretary of Lord Salis
bury, and Eric Barrlngton, of the For
eign Office, in behalf of Lord Lansdowne.
The Lord Mayor of London, Frank Green,
also called at the Embassy to formally
express his sympathy. Dismay pervaded
all classes here.
Among the numerous messages received
at the Embassy ,was another dispatch
from King Edward to Ambassador Choate,
It was dated at Copenhagen, and read:
"I am deeply grieved to learn that the
President's state of health has caused
great anxiety. I sincerely hope that his
life may yet be spared. EDWARD, R."

All the evening papers have most tender
references to McKlnley. The Pall Mall

to the Portland harbor.
IX ALASKA WATERS.
Cruise of the Grant Iceberg That
Sank the Islander.
The United States revenue cutter Grant
has returned from the north to Puget
Sound, says a Port Townsend paper. The
Grant sailed three months ago, with Col
onel Howard M. Kutchln, special agent
of the Treasury Department, on board,
who was sent North to Inspect the can
neries of Alaska for the purpose of see
ing that theywe re not violating the law
In regard to fishing In Alaska waters.
Sixty-eight canneries were visited. With
the exception of a few minor Infractions
they were complying with the regulations.
The most westerly canneries on the
Alaska coast are at Bristol Bay, and that
cannery, according to Captain Tozler, Is
the only one that has made a pack equal
to that of last year. The output of Alaska,
however, will be greater this year than
last, but this Is due to the fact that a
large number of new canneries have been
started. At the old fishing points the
pack fell considerably short of last sea
eon. Th-a Grant reports that the hatcheries
are In good condition, especially at Kar
luk, and that by next season each can
nery will maintain Individual hatcheries.
At Chllkoot the head chiefs of the Chll
koot and Dyea tribes, together with about
60 of the leading members of the tribes,
called upon Colonel Kutchln and made
many complaints against the whites for
encroaching upon their fishing grounds.
The burden of their complaints was to
the effect that the nets and'seln9 of the
white man were so numerous that the
salmon were prevented from entering tbe
streams In large numbers and that they
found It difficult to catch enough fish for
their Winter supply and livelihood. Colo
nel Kutchln explained to them that there
was no law to prevent such action on the
part of the whites, and at their solicita
tion he promised to submit their com
plaints to the proper authorities.
Ever since the establishment of can
neries in the Chllkoot country these In
dians have looked with disfavor upon the
white man, and some years ago the In
dlons would make nightly raids on the
seines and cut them, so that the cannery
people had to guard the nets. On several
occasions shots were exchanged, but no
one was hurt.
Captain Tozler reports that prospectors
on the Kuskokwlm River, when he was
there, were on the eve of starvation, and
that a schooner loaded with supplies had
been sent to them. He also reports that
a large number of men had gone to that
section early In the Spring, but they had
failed to find more 'than a trace of gold,
and that as a mining section It was a
The Grant passed over the scene of tne
wreck of the Islander the next day after
it took place, and Captain Tozler states
that the Ice floe was so great that he
found some difficulty in picking his way,
and in places the Ice was so thick that
under a slow bell he had to force his
STRIKE AT ABERDEEN.
Shipbuilding Is Stopped and Bnsi
ness Is Seriously Affected.
ABERDEEN, Wash., Sept. 13. Tho
strike Is having a serious effect on busi
ness here. So far one mill company has
shut down Its plant to await the out
come. No ships will be started in the
shipyards until the conditions change, al
though there were orders ahead to keep
a full force busy at both shipyards the
entire year. Other mill men will not stop
their plants until they have sawed so
much lumber that it will not pay to over-
stock any further. , The longshoremen
here are refusing to unload vessels com
ing from San Francisco and shipowners
have been obliged to advertise for men
to do the unloading, Ir. is said that money
has been sent by sympathizers here to
the 'strikers in San Francisco. Notwith
standing, the Anderson & Middleton Lum
ber Company Is building one of the
largest storage sheds to be found on the
Sound. The- longshoremen declare, how
ever, they are not refusing on account ot
the strike, but because there is too much
work for the number of men here.

Movements of Grain Ships.
The Ecuador will be the next vessel
which will clear from Portland. After
her will go probably the St. Donatlen or
the Dunbrltton, both of which will be
loaded immediately. The Dunbrltton was
chartered several days ago for 40 shillings
for prompt loading. Yesterday she moved
across the river from Sand to Montgom
ery dock to receive cargo. The Falls
of Halladale Is discharging ballast at
Weldler's mill. The St. Donatlen Is at
Greenwich dock. The Lonsdale is an

go to Elevator dock today. The Hilston

DREDGE EXPERT REPORTS.
Mr. Lockwood Advises the Port of
The Port of Portland Commission met
last evening, to hear the report of J. B.
C. Lockwood on the different advantages
of various dredges used la the East. Mr.
Lockwood left Portland last August, for
the purpose of comparing the workings
of Eastern dredges with those of Port
land and the Coast, and his report was
rather voluminous, dealing largely In fig
ures and estimates. He visited New York
City, Boston. Toledo, Newberg, N. Y., and
various points on the Mississippi River,
and took notes of the workings of hy
draulic, ladder, clamshell and dipper sys
tems, the amounts of horsepower used,
the number of men employed, tons of
coal burned dally, and amount of material
moved. The Portland of Portland dredge,
he thought, compared favorably with
them all, though he found Individual
points of excellence in the cutting power,
hoisting or delivery of many.
After summing up the points of all, Mr.
Lockwood concluded to recommend a 24
lnch centrifugal dredge for the Port of
Portland. This dredge should be sup
plied with spud gear. The engines should
be at least 1000 horsepower; the hull
should be 175 feet long, with beam of 36
feet. Such a machine should be able to
move 900 cubic yards per hour, and the
average number of working hours in each
month should reach 500, with the excep
tion of one month, during which the
dredge should be laid by for repairs.
Mr. Lockwood's report was listened to
with great interest, and at Us conclusion
he was asked a good many questions as
to details. The commission did not de
cide last evening to act on the report,
but the paper "will be retained for future
