LARGEST OF THEM ALL
BARK THEKLA CHARTERED FOR
Sound port with a cargo of lumber,
struck on the bar off here during: a
heavy northwest gale today and was to
tally wrecked. The crew was saved.
She "Will Be the BI?sct Sailing
Veiacl That Has Ever Been.
In Thin Fort
The German bark Thekla will load
wheat at Portland In. March. She Is a
carrier of 2330 net tons, and Is larger
than any sailing vessel that has entered
this port. The bark Henrlette, 2S82 net
tons, of the same nationality, now In the
river. Is the largest sailing vessel that
has ever been here. The charter rate
of the Thekla Is 31s 3d, a figure which
is regarded as a good one for so big a
vessel and for such distant loading.
Steamships of greater capacity have
been here, but not sailers. It Is prob
able that the Thekla will break the rec
ord of the Henrlette, which two years
ago, under the name of the Royal Forth,
took from here a cargo of 178,000 bushels
of wheat. This is the greatest amount
of grain that has gone from here in one
sailing vessel. The Thekla sailed from
Port Tampa July 6 for Yokahama. She
is a new four-masted vessel, with a depth
of hold of 24 feet

These three vessels have been loaded in
good time. They arrived October 18, and
chances are good for their getting away
to sea after three weeks at this port.
The German ship Nesala sailed into the
Columbia River on the same date as the
other three named, and will be ready for
Eca in a few days.
Yesterday the Wappaus left Elevator

own written confession. Charles D.
from the bottom of Lake Superior, Is re
sponsible for the defalcation. Thompson

bonding companies. His embezzlement Is
confessed In the following letter .to bu
preme Commander D. P. Markey:-
"Dear Sir: It Is with a feeling of dis
tress and shame that I tender herewith
my resignation as supreme finance keeper
of the order of which you are the head.
And this step is taken with a bitter real
ization that I am no longer worthy the
companionship and association of my fel
low officers. I have xheld the position
since the order was founded; have, dur
ing most of that time, been officially asso
ciated with the present supreme officers and
never until now did I in any way betray
my trust, I was engaged In a legitimate
business venture In which I had made
large Investments and found myself In a
position where further money was neces
sary to save myself from bankruptcy and
ruin. There was apparently no chance
for loss. I then betrayed my trust and
used the funds of the order, at the time
believing there was no question of my
ability to replace them within a short
time. The amount I used was $57,000. 1
have no hope of being able to repay this
"I know the order Is protected from loss
by the surety bond of nearly twice the
amount in a perfectly responsible com
pany, but this does not lessen my mental
suffering, nor relieve me from the dis
grace of having betrayed the confidence
reposed in me. Nothing that may occur
can Increase the tortures which I have
suffered and am still suffering. I can only
await such action as may be taken and
abide the consequences. No punishment
can be greater and no suffering so Intense
as that resulting from the loss of the re
spect and esteem of the membership of
the order and the suffering necessarily
caused to my family.
"CHARLES D. THOMPSON."
The first Intimation of the shortage
came last Tuesday afternoon, when Su
preme Commander Markey and Supreme
Record Keeper George J. Siegle were
checking over the finance keeper's books.
An error was found and they called
Thompson's attention to It. He said he
would take the books and papers home
with him that night and look It up.
"Wednesday morning he came to Supreme
Commander Markey'a office and confessed
that his accounts were short $57,000. He
then and there signed a written confes
sion of the embezzlement. An examination
of the books followed and the shortage
was disclosed. Supreme Commander Mar
key this afternoon gave out the following
in regard to it:
"Charles D. Thompson has been su
preme finance keeper of the Supreme Tent
since it was organized in September, 1S83,
and has handled and disbursed more than
$15,000,000 during that time and until this
defalcation no thought had ever been en
tertained against his integrity, and this
betrayal on his part will be keenly felt
by the membership. The Supreme Tent
keeps on deposit large amounts of money
in leading banks in several commercial
centers on which warrants are drawn for
the payment of death claims, but all col
lections are made through the Commer
cial Bank of Port Huron, and It Is part
of the duties of the supreme finance keep
er to transfer from time to time from the
Commercial Bank to these other deposi
tories money for the purpose of keeping
the account good at such banks, and
the money that was used In this case
by Mr. Thompson was on a draft trans
ferring from the Commercial Bank to
the First National Bank of New York.
Mr. Thompson's shortage is $57,000, but no
loss will be Incurred by the
Supreme Tent, as every flnancl&T
official of the organization, in-
executive board of the Brotherhood of
Carpenters has also preferred specific
charges of breach of trust against its old
secrotary-treasurer. A vote by the 1003
local unions of the brotherhood has been
ordered returned on or before December
1, making McGulre's suspension perma
nent. The suspended official was one of
the founders of the American Federation
of Labor, as well, as the Brotherhood of
LAURA BULLION CONFESSED.
Her Companion, Longbnngh, "Was
One of the Wagner Robbers.
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 7. Laura Bullion, the
woman who was arrested yesterday with
forged notes' of the National Bank of
Helena In her possession, was identified
In the office of Chief Desmond by George
Poetel, a merchant of Mascoutah, 111.,
who formerly knew the woman when she
lived In Texas. Following this, Laura
Bullion said to Chief Desmond:
"I have known the prisoner whom you
call Longbaugh since the latter part of
last April. It was in Fort Worth, Tex.,
that I first met him. Since that time we
have lived In various cities and have
gone under different names in every city
that we visited."
Before that she lived with Bill Carver,
a trainrobber, whq, she said, was killed
In Sonora, Mexico. April 2 last. Laura
Bullion went to Fort "Worth from her
home In Douglas, Ariz., to meet Long
baugh, who was introduced to her by
Bill Cheney, a member of the gang. She
"He had plenty of money, and I never
asked him any questions as to where he
got It. He gave me the money that was
in my possession when I was arrested."
At 4 o'clock this afternoon Laura Bul
lion began to make admissions to Chief
Desmond, which he says amount to a con
fession that her male companion is the
bandit Henry Longbaugh, who Is known
to have been one of the Great Northern
tralnrobbors. The woman said that in
Fort "Worth, shortly after her first meet
ing with her companion, who then called
himself Cunningham, she discovered in
"his pocket a dictionary, on the fly leaf
of which was written, "Harry Longbaugh,
Wagner, Mont." She further told Chief
Desmond that 'when Cunningham gave
her $7000 in unsigned Helena National
Bank notes, she was convinced that he
was Longbaugh, the trainrobber." She
said that she never mentioned her sus
picions to Cunningham because "she was
too wise." She confessed to the Chief that
she had forged the name of J. W. Smith,
cashier of the National Bank of Helena,
to the notes found so signed in her pos
session. On information of District Attorney
Rosier, United States Commissioner Gray
this afternoon Issued a warrant for Long
baugh, charging him with having forged
signatures to notes on the National Bank
of Helena. The Federal grand jury, which
is now in session, will at once take up
the case, and If an indictment is handed
down, the trial, it is stated, will begin
Immediately before Judge Adams. The
maximum penalty for the offense charged
Is 15 years' imprisonment.
Since death Is the penalty for trainrob
bery In Montana, the Federal Government
Is willing to let" Longbaugh, the man ar
rested here, be fried there. No proceed
ings, therefore, will be begun here, unless
the Montana authorities fall to act

On the Yukon.
Captam I. N. HIbbard, spuerlntendent
of the Northern Navigation Company,
which operates eight river steamers and
many barges On the Lower Yukon, has
returned from the North, says the Seattle
Post-Intelligencer. Thirty-eight steamers
ply between St. Michael and Dawson.
They tow barges, and sometimes one, two
and three such crafts trail after a steam
boat. Captain HIbbard estimates that the com
pany handled 25,000 tons of ' freight at
St, Michael, shipping practically all of
It to points up the Yukon from its mouth
to Dawson. Some of the vessels mado as
many as three round trips during the sea
son, carrying passengers and freight.
Probably 2000 people were carried down
the river, and In the neighborhood of 1500
were given up-river transportation. An
up-river voyage between St, Michael and
Dawson requires from 20 to 25 days. The
down-stream run Is made In from 7 to 10,
several of the fleet having under particu
larly favorable conditions done the dis
tance In five days. Sixteen and seventeen
days Is the best time ever made up the
Yukon between the points named. There
are many hindrances to Yukon navigation,
the greatest annoyance, however, being
low water. Along a 500-mile stretch of
water between Fort Hamlin and Eagle
City, known as the Yukon Flats, the
water Is distressingly shallow, and there
Is probably not a steamer on the Lower
Yukon that has not grounded or hung up

For Every Form of Weak
ness and Diseases of
Many Men Treated for a Weakness Which Never Existed.
In the largest proportion of cases of lost vitality, prematureness and
the train of symptoms known as "weakness," certain morbid conditions
of the uretha and prostate gland, damaged by early dissipation, too often
repeated and too long-continued excitement so react on the organs that a
condition of diminished vitality and function Is Induced. Our knowledge
ot the morbid changes in the organs themselves is quite clear and full, but
how these changes operate on the nerves and spinal cord center are mys
teries to the medical profession. Whatever th morbid change may be, how
ever, the effects are apparent in the embarrassed sufferer; these troubles
being symptomatic of the above-mentioned and well-defined morbid con
ditions, it seems that even the unprofessional patient must understand
that stomach drugging will not cure, but efforts directed toward repairing
the damaged tract will restore. In practice such Is the cate, as the treat
ment on these lines never fails to accomplish the desired result. Colored
chart of the organs sent on application.
Under the treatment pursued before irrigations were established, six
"weeks' was deemed the duration of an acute contracted disorder. If It pro
ceeds beyond six weeks, it was considered to have gone Into chronic con
dition. From statistics compiled from our practice in the post five years,
covering over 6500 cases, we can sshow that DO per cent of our patients have
recovered in fourteen days or Jess. It Is, therefore, equally proper to nold
that a case not entirely cured within two weeks must be considered a chronic
one. and some complication has arisen, for which the patient should see
a specialist. We invite free consultat.on on this subject, and offer an ex
perience of over twenty years; In fact, we can positively assert that we
have never failed to cure in a single instance.
