THE MORNING OREGONIAN, THURSDAY, APRIL" 10, 1902. MANY MOON STEAMERS PO$tfEl4V?D ,ILAS DISPATCHED A bozxjx jjf THREE months. "Wlient and Flour Shipment Yexter dnyWere (Over -lOO.ODO Bunhcls 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 brokeshire, 2767; Thyra, 2419; Indravelll, 3152; Oceano, 3050; Adato, 2145; Indrapura, 3152; Maria, 1989. 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 region. 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 blessed with. 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 people. 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. HEAVY GRAIN CLEARING. VorrlNdnle, ISrnent Le Gotrve and Marin Are Ready for Sea. The clearances of wheat, flour included, .rom Portland yesterday were over 400, XX bushels, which is a pretty good figure For one day with the season's business 10 nearly over.

The Agnes Oswald is next on the list to load, but is she has just finished discharging in f ard "cargo, it will be a number of days oefor she wi'ibe ready for sea. The Ven- . dec. which Is under charter for wheat j loading, has not yet finished discharging lcr inward eartro. and as her Tenalrs are j not yet completed. It will probably be well on toward the cni of the month before she is roqdy for sea. The Sy.cUc Not Fined. ASTORIA, Or.. April 9. The fine of $5000 Imposed by Collector of Customs Fox a few days ago on the British ship Speke for failure to bring Consular bills of health from South Australia has been dismissed. The manifest which Captain Stott filed when he arrived showed that j the vessel came from Adelaide. The clear ance papers showed that she was from Port Adelaide. At -the former place there !

CHICAGO, April 9. When seen today regarding his resignation. General Fltz simons said: "Some time ago I signed what .has been called a 'round robin concerning the ac tions of the Republican State Central Com 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- tlon." . j CROWDER'S INVESTIGATION Army Officers May Inspect the Brit ish Camp at Chnlmette.

Improvements Will Increase Ca pacity of Its Audi torium. TVia tmiluig nt Hftntftnurv Mpthndlst 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 , FOR VLADIVOSTOCK. 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 special effort. 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 yesterday, remarked: "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 be taken. At the meeting of the association, which Sickly People who have no appe tite and always feel tired, irrita ble and nervous, need a few doses of Hostetters' Stomach Bitters It will tone up the stomach, strengthen tho invigorate the Liver and Kid neys, and induce sound sleep. When taen faithfully, it will cure Dyspepsia, indigestion, Constipa tion, Biliousness and Flatulency. Don't fail to tro it. The genuine must have Onr Private Die Stamp over the neck of the bottle. iftm STOMACH will be held April 27, the programme for Memorial day will be talked over and plans will be Jald. The members have set: themselves to work to make the building fund $1000 by that time, and the prospects are that they will raise a larger; sum by that time. NEW CONCRETE SIDEWALKS. Hundreds of Feet of This Material Arc Being: Laid on the East Side. xiuiuircua oi ietL ui new concrete sue- walk are being laid on the East Side. G. M. Scttleraelr is laying 200 feet of this sidewalk on East Ankeny street. C. N. Rankin has just completed 200 feet around his quarter block on East Burn side and East Twelfth streets. Charles Wilson will put down 100 feet on East Burnslde. Many new sidewalks that are to be rebuilt while Bast Burnslde Is be ing improved will be of concrete. John Cordray and other property-owners near his home will rebuild with concrete. Last year more of this kind of sidewalk j was laid than for many years before, ' and this year the same will be true. The I cleanness and enduring character of con- , crete for walks are being -more generally recognized than before. Before most of the hundreds of new dwellings concrete will be used, and in the course of a few t years the rotten wooden sidewalks will disappear altogether. WOODSTOCK, IMPROVEMENT. Neiv Water WorUs Being? Built and Park Station Will Be Established. At Woodstock extensive Improvements are being made to the water works plant, which Is being rebuilt. The new tower will stand on a concrete foundation 30 feet square alongside the present struc ture. A redwood tank, with a capacity for 20,000 gallons of water, will be built. The old tower has become Insecure, and the new one will be a vast Improvement. A steady supply of water at all times will be supplied. In connection with these Improvements It la proposed to transform the adjoining block. 100 feet square, near the new water tower. Into a park. The Push Club pro poses to move the station to the ground, have It fenced, and then make a park out of It It will be cultivated. Flower beds will be made and shrubbery set out In the Inclosure. The park will be part of the station. J. Gilstrap, president cf the Push Club, is urging these latter improvements. Death of John W. Bnttln.
