very quiet in their demeanor. The night

3IANY STUDENTS ARE COMING IN.
Attendance at State University
Promises to Break All Records.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON. EUGENE,
Oct. 29. The number of students at the
University of Oregon is increasing rapid
ly, and will, from all indications, go be
yond that of last year. As the number
last year showed an unusually large in
crease, the membership for the present
year will be seen to be very satisfactory.
The many opportunities for -work this
Summer and the high wages offered, to
gether with the remarkably favorable
-weather, have kept back until late many
students who have io work their way
through the university. Those students
are now coming in more rapidly than last
year at this time.
The best Indications that the university
has seen for some years, as far as stu
dents are concerned, are the following:
Firs't, the university is getting more stu
dents from Portland than ever before.
Students from the largest city of the
state, instead of going to Berkeley or
Stanford, are, in increasing numbers,
turning to the -university of their own
state. This tendency has its origin, part
ly -at any rate, in the growing conviction
that the equipment of the University of
Oregon, the character of its teachers and
work done, warrant the attention of the
bost. students. Partly, it is the result of
the conviction that the student's chances
for solid, work are very much better in
a smaller institution where the crowd of
students is not so great as to seriously
limit the opportunities for laboratory
work and individual work in recitations.
Second, the university is getting a bet
ter class of students than ever before.
Tbey are better prepared, have had more
consecutive training and are capable of
a higher grade of work than ever be
fore. The bearing of this upon the gen
eral scholarship standard of the university
Third, the university is securing a more
permanent student body than for some
years. That is. It is setting students who
come for a consecutive course of training,
for regular, continued, systematic work,
without -which the best grade of scholar
ship is impossible. This has been and is
now one definite aim of 'the university,
and to secure it the university is very
willing to sacrifice for a season mere

There has been considerable discussion
as to the province of officers of the stu
dent body, and previously an organiza
tion known as the Athletic Union, com
posed of students, had charge of athletics
in general. Upon the organization of the
student body last year the duties for

RAIN'S BENEFITED APPLES.
Rogrne River Valley Crop Improved
In Sire and Quality.
ASHLAND. Or., Oct 30. The rains dur
ing the .eailier part of the present month
and the Jong spell of bright and warm
days which followed them proved to be of
immense benefit to the apple' crop of the
Rogue River Valley. Many of the apple
trees on which the fruit was not of a
strictly first-class marketable condition,
on account of the early dry weather,
took on increased vigor, and the fruit
they bore was greatly Improved in both
size and appearance, "and the year's crop
greatly enlarged thereby.
The firm of Olwell Bros., of Central
Point, who are. In all probability, the
largest growers of apples In , Southern
Oregon, have gathered their crop of ap
ples for the season. It will amount to -JO
cars of COO boxes each, which amount Is
one of their average crops. Had the
rains come a .trifle earlier, the output of
their orchard would have been doubled.
AH of the Newtown J?ipplns grown by the
Olwel' Bros, .have been contracted tor
the London. England, market, to reaqh'
which the cost per cjit is 5600. During the
picking season about 70 men were em

BOHEMIA MINING DISTRICT
New Railway for Tbis CampDivi
dends Paid by Noted Company.'
The railway that will be built from
Cottage Grove to the Bohemia district,
about 40 miles from that point, win open
up a mining district of great richness.
Capital has been slow to .recognize the
splendid showing made by a number of
properties in Bohemia, but capital is al
ways timid, and the lack of proper facil
ities for bringing ore to the market Has
prevented the investment of large sums
of money. With the completion of the
railway ore can be brought to the smelt
ers at greatly reduced cost. Several hun
dred thousand dollars has been extracted
from the free-milling ores of the Bohemia
district, but as depth Is attained, base
ore predominates, with Increased values.
The result of persistent work in the Hel
ena mine shows clearly that gold in pay
ing quantity, even with present facili
ties for handling, can be taken from the
upper ledges. This company, since April 1,
1900, has paid In dividends to stockholders
$104,000. an excellent showing, considering
the difficulties encountered. There are
a number of other properties adjacent
to the Helena considered equally as rich.
TEMPEST MINE SOLD.
Concentrating Plant Will Be Put in
Placer Ground Change Hqnds.
BAKER CITY. Oct. 30. E. A. Frenzei,
of California, who has been inspecting va.
rious .mining properties in this vicinity
for several days, has purchased the Tem
pest mine, in the Greenhorn district. This
mine has been operated with varied suc
cess for several years. Mr. Frenzei will
erect a concentrating plant for the pur
pose of treating the ores. The ore is
base, and Mr. Frenzei believes he can de
vise a plan of treatment which will be
successful, and in time make the Tempest
mine one of the great producers of this
part of the state.
In addition to the purchase of the Tem
pest mine, Mr. Frenzei has bought 320
acres of placer-gold ground on Gold Creek,
together with ample water rights for the
working of the same. The placer claim
has never been worked to any extent, but
is said to be exceedingly rich.
Mr. Frenzei first heard of the Eastern
Oregon gold fields in Seattle, after re
turning from Alaska, and he determined
to look the ground over himself 'and 9ee

EORT TOWNSEtfD, "Wash., Oct. 30.
TVIn(ter had set in in earnest .at Nome
when the steamer Queen,, which arrived
from the North today, sailed on October
23. vThe thermometer had been falling for
a week, and when the Queen . sailed a
blinding snofr storm was raging. The
steamer brought down a number of the
more , important Nome personages- who
waited until the last boats sailed. Her
passenger list numbered about 800. Only
the" small steamer Arctic was left at
Nome. . The Roanoke had left 'four days
ahead of the Queen for Dutch Harb'orl
Passengers on the Queen report that 500
men were left at Nome, "all of whom are
penniless, with no means of making a liv-ing-fluring

ror is predicted. There were 100 stow
aways on the Queen who succeeded in
boarding the vessel by climbing up the
anchor chains, ropes, etc., while she lay
at anchor In the roadway. During the
entire voyage, petty thefts were of daily
occurrence, and all had to carry their
valuables on their persons. The second
day out from Nome a passenger fell down
an. open hatchway, sustaining serious in
jury. The steamer had a good voyage until
within the last 48 hours before reaching
Cape Flattery, at which time she was
overtaken by a wind storm directly astern.
The gale rose to 46 miles an hour, and
the seas ran mountain high. The culmi
nation .came Monday night, when the ship
took to rolling heavily, and just at the
hour of change of watch, 4 A. M., she
took a final plunge and a turn, which
for the moment threatened to roll her com
pletely over. She rolled over 'to the port
side very nearly beyond the point of turn
ing back. At the same moment she was
struck amidships by a tremendous sea,
which stove In some. of the staterooms,
broke In the doors of the main saloon
and sent tons of water Into the dining
saloon, pantry and kitchen, and flooded
the lower cabins. The electric lights went

danger, a live wire started a smoke, ana j
some excited passengers started the cry
of fire. Cool heads, however, prevented a
panic and the only inconvenience suffered
by the passengers was a very late and a
very meager breakfast The understand
ing was that there was an accident in
making the 4 o'clock shift, by which the
tiller was not well handled, and the ship
lost her rudder for the moment.
On the Queen were six Federal prison
ers, Thomas Morton, James Campbell, J.
E. Martin, G. N. Stockslager, F. B. Co
nant and one woman, bound for the pen-"
itentiary a McNeill's Island, under sen
tences of from two to six years.
The Queen reports the little schooner J.

The Valencia also arrived from Nome to

LOWER THANr IT HAS BEEN FOR
YEARS AT SOUTH BEND,
Most Fishermen Are Likely to Quit
Work What Canncryinen '
Have io Say.
SOUTH BEND, Oct. 30. The price of
salmon has been cut again by P. O.
Barnes.. The price has been 5 cents
apiece for dog salmon, 10 cents for silver
sides and 15 cents for Fall chinook
salmon, but from now on the price will
be 3 cents for dog salmon, 5 cents for
sllversldes and 10 cents for large salmon.
Prices have not been as low as this for
years, and It Is not expected that many
will fish at these figures, but, as It Is
now, the run of fish Is so heavy that it
will take but few fishermen to supply the
canneries, Mr. Barnes asserts that tho
bottom has fallen out of the salmon mar
ket, and there is no sale for Fall salmon.
Thus far the heavy run in this bay has
been dog salmon, but now sllversldes are
becoming more plentiful.
OREGON ON THE DRYDOCK.
The Great Battle-Ship Is to Be Given
n Thorough Overhauling.
SEATTLE, Oct. 30. The battle-ship
Oregon is now In the Government dry
dock at the Puget Sound navy-yard,
where she was taken last Friday to un
dergo repairs to her keel, which was se
verely strained when she ran on the
rocks some months ago. Later he wl",l
be given .a general overhauling and
painting. More than ordinary care was
necessary on account of the strained keel,
and for many days prior to the docking
traordlnary preparations were made
for the reception of the big war vessel.
In order that she might rest gently on
tho blocks, instead of pumping all the
water from the dock, as Is usually the
case, the removal of water was only
about six feet. She was then placed
in position and two divers entered tho
water to adjust wedges and blocks car,o
fully about the keel before any great
part of the weight of the battle-ship was
allowed to rest. The remainder of the
water has since been pumped from the
dock, and the damaged part of tho hull

It Is a crime to experiment with, the health of the people," says Dr. J.
Henri Kessler, manager of the Old St. Louis Dispensary at Portland. "If
I did not know positively and ab3o lutely that my ,new home treatment
will cure alL diseases of men. even when all other methods of treatment
fall, I would consider I-was committing a crime to make such a statement
to the public. Nothing Is so precious to a man as, his health nothing so
horrible as an Insane Asylum or the grave. Lltfle ills, if not promptly
cured, often result in obstinate chronic diseases. I know that my new dis
covery is the most marvelous treatment ever known, and I intend to give
its benefit to the world. I intend that every man. woman and child who
comes for treatment shall have it. I propose to tell the sick, absolutely
free of charge, if they may be restored to perfect health. I would rather
be a benefactor to the sick man than to have the wealth of Crcseus."
The above are remarkable words, but those who know Dr. Kes3ler. and
have tried his treatment, can vouch for their absolute truthfulness.
He restores the wasted power of sexual manhood.
He also cures to stay cured VARICOCELE. STRICTURE SYPHILTIC

was to be made this evening at high tide.
If this fails the vessel will be doomed,
