Marine , Notes.
The British steamship Queen Mary, un
der charter to the Pacitic Exi;ort Lumber
Company, of this city, arrived at Van
couver yesterday afternoon, after an un
usually long passage from Java. The
steamer brings a full cargo .of sugar for
the Vancouver retmery, and after dis
charging It will come around to Portland
to load lumber for the far East. This Is
the third of the Pacific Export Lumber
Company's fleet to make long passages
across the Pacific this .year, two of the
others, the "Wllhelmlna and Folmlna, be
ing so long on the way that they missed
their charters The number of foreign
steamships loading at Portland last year
broke all previous records, and from the
start that has been made this year an
even greater number of the ocean tramps
will come to Portland In 1902. Includ
ing the regular liners, 12 big steamships
have left this port since January 1. There
are three In the river and two others near
ly due, so that the montji of April will
more than keep up the average of a
steamer a week. The Maria, which fin
ished loading yesterday, will leave down
today, and the next steamer to follow will
be the Theodore Wllle, which will finish
loading next week. The repairs to the
Quito will probably be finished next weeK
and she will undoubtedly be taken up for
some kind of business. The Strathgyle,
of the Portland & Asiatic Steamship Com
pany, will reach port next week, and be
fore she leaves the river the Queen Mary
will be around. The falling off in the
Oriental flour trade will make business
bad for some of the tramp steamers, but
the lumber business Is growing so rapidly
that many of them will be taken for that
trade. The steamers departing since Jan
uary 1 and their net registered tonnage
were as follows: Knight Companion, 2620;
Strathgyle, 32S4; Argyll, 22S9; Palatlnia,
233S; Margretha. 2164; Hatlsu, 21C0; Pem

THE STEAMER MHTLAKO.
White Collar Line Rechrintens the
Bonita "With Legendary Title.
The White Collar Line has Just obtained
permission from the Bureau of Navigation
to change the name of its new steamer
Bcnita, recently purchased to alternate
with the Tahoma on The Dalles-Portland
line, and the new name selected is Met-la-lco,
with the accent on the ko. Notice of
the authorized change Is now being pub
lished, and by next Sunday it is expected
all the legal formalities will have been
complied with, and the steamer will sail
under her new name. Thus the scenic
route between Portland and The Dalles
will be served by sister steamers of this
line the Tahoma and the Metlako bear
ing names well known in Indian legends of
The significance of the two names is
given In the following "Legend of Tahoma
(Mount Rainier) and Metlako," as told by
an old Puyallup Indian:
Beginning, he said that the mountain had
not always occupied Its present proud and Iso
lated position. That In the "hyas ancutty,"
or long, long ago, when the Great Spirit cre
ated beings In his own Image, and possessed
of the powers of speech and action, that he en
dowed them with much greater knowledgo and
powers than the present race of Indians were
Among them was a Chief Io-ce-wallop5,
whose word was law over all the Puget Sound
country, which at that time was a beautiful
valley, abounding In all kinds of pleasant
places, flsh and game. He was descended from
Ne-lca-na and La-wis-wle. whom tradition links
with Puyallup Valley, which Is said to be the
Eden of the Indian; and also with the story of
how the wild rose bush first grew thorns. For
reasons of state. It was urged upon him to
take as his spouse a Columbia River Princess,
a goddess who held sway over the salmon
known to those water. For many moons he
hesitated; his affections had been given to Ta-Tio-ma,
a beautiful maiden of his own people,
one whose time was spent in causing laughing
streamlets to burst forth here and there from
hillside and plain, giving drink to the earth's
mantle of green. Its bush, animal and the
As a compromise, it was proposed that he
take both of the charmers to wlf6, which he
did. but It was not long before Jealousy arose
between them and his wigwam ceased to be at
peace. Met-la-ko, the Columbia River bride,
had borne her lord a son. Ta-ho-ma was
barren of Issue. Anger over her lot bred dis
like for the new addition to the family circle,
and she resolved upon his death. Fearing that
danger threatened her babe, Met-la-ko went
.forth, as Kager of old, wandering In the wilds,
refusing to return.
The conduct of his wives so unsettled the
mind of Do-ce-wallops that he began to perse
cute his people, and often killed them. At last
he contemplated their extermination, and was
making preparation to that end when the Great
Spirit stepped In and became the arbiter of
the family destiny.
To each he decreed their fate, Ta-ho-ma be
ing the first to feel tils power. In disposing of
her he purposed to place before others that
were wives a warning one that would always
be in view, a simile of what Jealousy would
bring to them.
By will and wave of hand the spot where a
woman stood no longer knew her form, for
high towards the dome of blue, as If its peak
were lifted to kiss the stars, Ta-ho-ma, once
a maid so beautiful, became a mountain grand.
Around her form he wrapped a mantle white
and cold, ever keeping the fire of Jealousy
within from bursting forth to harm as she had
none before. As the transformation took place,
the brooklets she had caused to lend song to
the meadows through which they ran ceased
to flow, and lamentation was great upon the
earth, to appease which, the Great Spirit
touched Ta-ho-ma's higher elevation, when, as
if a fair one with water Jars in arm. lakes
were formed from which come down the moun
tain side the many streams that feed the verd
ure in the valleys below. From this the
Meaning of Ta-ho-ma hag been slnco known
is "nourishing breast."
The valley that had ceased to be a paradise
was made to sink below the adjacent lands,
nd In Its fall Its sides were left abrupt, in
dented and at times pierced with fissures ex
tending far away. Over this once smiling ope
3f country rushed the ceaseless ebb and flood
it ocean's tide to ever hide Its face. As the
Great Spirit wrought these changes, Do-ce-wallops,
together with Met-la-ko and her son, fled
to the north. As Met-la-ko grew tired through
ihe weight of the salmon she could not leave
behind. Bhe threw them Into the streams and
ranals putting Into the newly-made sound, and
there today can be caught each species, and
that only from the waters where she depos
ited them. At last her fate overtook her, her
snow-capped monument being now Renown as
Mount Solomon. Hard by, as mute as the
granite Into which he became changed, stands
her son, and although crested with white. Is
not much of an eminence. Do-co-wallops Is of
itill less height, and so because ho was so In
ilgnlficant when a man was needed to quell
the rising of a storm caused by a couple of
vomen given to Quarreling.

"Some time ago I signed what .has been
called a 'round robin concerning the ac

mittee. A few days later I heard through
a friend that Governor Yates was in
censed at finding my signature there, and
took the 'round robin' as a reflection on
his administration. I, therefore, without
waiting to hear from the Governor, wrote
him and explained that the circular did
not reflect on the administration, but
merely on the State Central Committee.
A few days ago I got a 1200-word letter
from him, asking for my resignation. Ac
cording to the military regulations, a
Brigadier-General can be removed only
by resignation or court-martial. I did not
care to have any fuss, however, and sent j
about three lines, tendering my reslgna-

J Episcopal Church are figuring on over
i hiiiillns the church buildlne: and making
some Important changes in the inside ar
rangements, the cost of which will be
about $2000. In the basement It is pro
posed to lower the floor of the large lecture-room
and thus make the celling
higher. The lecture and Sunday school
room Is located In the basement, but the
ceiling Is too low, and It has not been
used for this purpose. There will also be
some other Important changes In the
basement, the details of which have not
been worked out yet.
Tn the auditorium the most Important
changes" are under consideration. One
plan is to remove the folding doors which
now separate the ' auditorium and the
apartment occupied by the Sunday school,
and enlarge the auditorium so as to in
clude nearly all the space now occupied
by the Sunday school room. In the gallery
at the rear end the small apartments
will bo moved and light freely admitted
from the windows In that part of the
church Into the auditorium. One object
is to Increase the seating capacity of the
auditorium on the floor. When these
changes shall have been made the ses
sions of the Sunday school will be held In
the basement room.
Since the church was dedicated over 10
years ago it has never received ap over
hauling, as its finances would not admit
of this being done, but the church has
passed through Its financial crisis, and
is now In a more prosperous condition
than at any time In its history. Many new
members have been coming In, and it now
feels strong enough to undertake to carry
the burden of these Improvements. Col
lections have been on the Increase, and
on Easter nearly $500 was raised without
Just when work will be commenced has
not been settled. An architect, with some
of tho trustees and Rev. W. B. Holllngs
head, made a careful examination of the
building yesterday. Plans will be pre
pared and estimates of cost of the work
will be made. This will be done within
a week, when the trustees will have some
thing to start with.
FOR SOLDIERS' MONU3IENT.
President Pratt Snys Association
Will Raise $10,000 for Its Erection.
M. L. Pratt, president of the Soldiers'
Monument Association, organized to erect
a monument in Lone Fir cemetery, in
memory of the Indian. Mexican, Civil and
Spanish-American War Veterans, in
speaking of the prospects of the project
"From indications and reliable Informa
tion I believe that we shall raise $10,000
for the erection of this monument. We
shall not get this money from Portland,
but from tho Northwest. This Is the first
effort that has been made to erect a suit
able monument to the memory of the pio
neer Indian veterans on this Coast, and
it must be done now, or perhaps it will
never be done. The Indian War Veterans,
who are part of the pioneer contingent,
arc passing away, and when they are
gone there may be no one to take up the
project of 'erecting a monument to their
memory. The Indian War Veterans are
taking interest in this" movement through
out the state, and they are going to give
us substantial help. The Pioneer Associa
tion and the Indian War Veterans at their
annual gatherings this year will be Invit
ed to assist In the movement.
The members of the association are dis
cussing the probable programme for Me
morial day, May 31. On that day It Is
proposed to dedicate with appropriate
ceremonies' the site donated by the Lone
Fir Association for this- monument. It
Is considered that such an exercise will at
tract attention to the monument and aid
in the work of raising funds for its erec
tion. It Is possible that the corner-stone
of the monument will be laid on that
day. If this be done It will be a formal
ity, as the foundation of the shaft can
not be laid so far In advance of the actual
work of construction. The foundation will
probably be concrete. It Is proposed that
a stone block of proper dimensions be pre
pared, with an opening for the deposit of
articles, and laid, and then taken up
sealed, and when the foundation is built
it can be placed In It. This course may
