The British ship Deccan, the 17th vessel
for South African business from the Pa

season, waa yesterday chartered by the
Portland Flouring Mills Company, of this
city, to load at Tacoma. The fleet already
cleared this season has carried in wheat
and flour nearly 1,500.000 bushels. Port
land has sent out more wheat than was
dispatched from the Puget Sound ports,
but flour shipments from Tacoma and Se

A LEAF FROM THE PAST.
Relic of O. S. X. Co. Again Changes
Owners on Puget Sound.
The old steamer Seahome has once more
passed on to new owners, Dodwell & Co.,
who have been operating her on Puget
Sound, disposing of her and the State of
Washington to the Pacific Coast Steamship
Company, who will probably keep her on
the Belllngham Bay route. The Seahpme
began life on the "middle river" as the
O. S. N. steamer Mountain Queen, over
25 years ago. She was launched at The
Dalles, March 15, 1877, and the same day
tne wrecked steamer Daisy Alnsworth,
which had been hanging to a rock at the
Upper Cascades, broke away and drifted
over the rapids to the lower river. The
steamer was in command of Captain Mc
Nulty and J. W. Troup and Fred Wilson
the greater part of the time while she was
on the middle river, and when the comple
tion of the railroad In 1822 put the steam
boats out of business, . Captain James
Troup and Engineer Peter de Huff brought
her over the Cascades to the lower liver.
She came over June 6, 1882, making the"
run in 11 minutes, which was a little
slower than the time of the R. R. Thomp
son, which came over three days earlier.
Soon after coming down she was placed
on the Astoria route, in command of
Captain Clark W. ("Woody") Sprague.
Other masters who handled her on the
'Astoria route were Sam Colson, now on
the Ocklahama; Henry Kindred, now on
the Port of Portland dredge; John W.
Babbidge, owner of the steamer MUer, at
Astoria; John Gore, now superintendent
of Canadian Pacific steamers on the Up
per Columbia, and others. The steamer
was rebuilt as a slde-wheeler in 1889, and
sent around to Puget Sound, where she
has since ran on every prominent route
out of Seattle and Tacoma. She Is, now
25 years old, but It is hardly probable that
In the last 20 years of her life she has
earned as much money as she piled up for
her owners in the first five years of her
existence, when Columbia River steam
boating was In the height of Its glory.
BY WIRELESS TELEGRAPH.
Progress of an Ocean Race Noted
From a Distance of GO allies.
Wireless telegraphy ha3 infused a new
Interest In racing between the Atlantic
ocean liners, and the last trip of the Lu
canla and Philadelphia to New York was
a very interesting one. The New York
Herald tells of the contest in the following
"Imprimis, ocean racers never race.
This can be taken as authoritative, for
every trans-Atlantic captain always vig
orously denies that his vessel has ever
tried to outdo another in the way of
speed. So it came about that the Lu
cania, champion of the Cunard line, and
the Philadelphia, which has been making
many pretentions to fast going since the
emplacement of her powerful engines, did
not "race" this trip merely made un
usual caorts to see which would get there
Perhaps neither did race, but the Lu
cania managed to make the fastest pas
sage that she has made in four years,
while the Philadelphia, "running like a
scared wolf," as one of her junor officers
phrased it, came panting Into port a bit
astern of the triumphant Cunarder, but
with one of her own records broken.
"A full 50 miles of blue Atlantic was
washing between the two vessels when
they got In wireless communlcotlon Tues
day -night An exchange of positions
showed that they were almost abeam
neck and neck, as It were. The Lucanla
had merely been Jogging along that day,
making 527 knots, while the Philadelphia
had managed to reel off 492 knots. On
the next day the American liner put 503
knots to her credit, while the Cunarder's
accelerated speed showed 539. On the
following day the Philadelphia was going
so fast that she broke her own best record
for a single day's run, traveling 507 knots,
as against her previous best exploit of 504.
The Lucania'e run that day was 530.
"The Cunarder gradually drew away
from the American liner, but could not
draw far enough away to run out of the
radius of wireless communication,, and the
two operators talked all the way to port,
the Lucanla's operator making cheerful
references to towllnes, while the Piadel
phla man talked of records that were go
ing to smash most any minute."
STRIKE AT BOATYARD.
Astoria Men Demand a Nine-Hour
Day "Wages Satisfactory.
ASTORIA, Or.. May 13. A strike oc
curred at the Leathers boatyard last even
ing, ind the plant Is closed down, pend
ing a settlement The men demand a
nine-hour day, but make no request for an
increase In wages. Mr. Leathers says the
men gave him no notice, but quit work
when he was building a steamer which
he had contracted for under the 10-hour
schedule. He pays the union scale of
wages, and says he has no objection to
.a nine-hour day, providing he Is given an
opportunity to make his contracts accord
ingly. What Mr, Leathers Intends to do
to effect a settlement Is not known, but
ho Intimated today that he would secure
a new force of boatbulldcrs from Port
land and allow them the regular nine
Launches to Be Taken to Alaska.
The sale of the launches Sylph and(
Eagle to the laclflc Packing & Naviga
tion Company has been formally closed,
and arrangements are now being made to
take both launches to Puget Sound and
later to Southeastern Alaska, where they
will be used aa cannery tenders. On the
trip Captain M. D. Staples will command
the Sylph to Puget Sound and Captain
Enoch Peterson the Eagle.

Captain John Reid today purchased the
hull recently built at the Graham yards
for the Charles F. Beebe Company, and
will equip it with a 30-horsepower gaso
line engine. She will be ready in about
a week, and will go Into service in attend
ing to the shiplpng in the harbor. He will
also build another launch 57 feet In length
and 12 feet beam. She will be equipped
with a O-horsepower gasoline engine, and
will bo the largest and fastest boat of her

later time paid the expenses of an "Indian
Congress," which proved to be one of the
very unique and interesting features of
the exposition something like $15,003
more. The local subscriptions from first
to last footed up something like $4QO,000;
but In this must be reckoned the subscrip
tions of the several railroads which center
at Omaha. The Chicago & North-Western
gave ?30,000, and this subscription was
duplicated by the Burlington. The Union
Pacific gave 120,000. the Rock Island J20.000.
the Milwaukee JIO.000 and the Missouri
Pacific $15,000. The Western Union Tele
graph Company gave $5000. All the sub
scriptions were asked on a stock-taking
basis, but there was so little faith In the
enterprise, from a business point of view;
that all, with the exception of the Rock
Island road and the Western Union Tele
graph Company, were made as donations,
the companies fearing that if they became
stockholders In the fair company it
would involve them in deficit responsl.

OLD RESIDENT OF
H1LLSBOBO. Dr., May IS. The
funeral of Rev. W. E. Smith, Coun
ty Judge of "Washington County in
an early day, will be held at his
residence in this city tomorrow.
Mr. Smith died from general debil
ity. He was born -In Fairfield Coun
ty. Ohio. March 11. 1817. He -was
a man of much ability, and before
coming to this place was Jud-- of
his county In Ohio. He settled here
in 18G4, and had resided here con
tinuously olnce. He had been a
Methodist minister for many years,
and adhered to the old cchool. He
was married to Miss Nancy Adams,
in Licking County. Ohio, in 1837.
To this union 11 children were born,
three of whem are llvlns Dr. Clark
Smith, of Santa Cruz. Cal.; Mrs.
M. A. Cornelius, of Corozllus, and
Mrs. E. C Cornelius, of Salem. In
18S0 Rev. Mr. Smith it as again
married, this time to Mlea Mary F.
Marker, who survives him.
Telegraph Company got back 93 per cent,
or all but 7 per cent, of their money.
In addition to these general sources of
income there were several large contribu
tions from states, though in most in
stances the sums thus given were ex
pended under the direction and responsi
bility of special commissions, and came
not Into the hands of the fair manage
ment, though they contributed largely,
of course, to the general interest and the
success of the enterprise. Nebraska was
under Populistic rule at the time, and all
that could be got from the Legislature
was 5100,000, and even this came grudg
ingly. The County of Douglas gave $15,000.
The City of Omaha gave nothing out
right, but contributed to the "parking" of
the fair grounds. To her original sub.
scription of $10,000, above referred to,
Iowa give $20,000 at a later time. Illi
nois gave $45,000 for a state building and
several other states gave in a small way
under this principle. Nearly every "West
ern State, Including Oregon, made some
sort of appropriation for an exhibit, and
as an exposition of the country west of
the Mississippi River the fair was en
tirely creditable. First and last, the cos
of the fair was approximately $2,500,000;
and left a sufficient balance to return the
original subscriptions, almost dollar for
The fair opened its gales June 1 and
closed them November 1, and In this per
iod of five months the aggregate admis
sions were about 1600,000, of which about
one-fifth were free, and a considerable
proportion of those who paid school
children and the like did so on a low
basis. Iowa and Missouri were far and
away the largest patrons of the fair. Ne
braska, curiously enough, gave It less
patronage in proportion to population
than did cither of the states mentioned.
The attendance from Chicago was con
siderable and there was a good deal of
coming and going, from the other states
of the East but viewed largely, the sup
port of the fair came from its own field.
At the beginning a mistake was made In
the selection of a site. A situation some
four miles out of town was first chosen,
and it was not until some little progress
had been made toward Its preparation
that, upon sober thought, it was decided
to bring the fair within a mile and a half
of the business center. This change, In
the Judgment of those best entitled to
render Judgment was the main circum
stance which contributed to the success
of the enterprise.
The Fair Association put up nine con
siderable buildings a building of Mines
and Mining, at a cost of $30,000; Art, $50,
000; Electrical and Mechanical, $35,000; Ag
ricultural, $50,000; Forestry. $15,000; power
house, $70,000: Horticulture, $35,000; Audi
torium, $20,000; transportation shed, $15.
000. In addition to these structures, which
were large and of a temporary but showy
kind, the company built some seven or
eight small structures at an aggregate
cost of about $10,000. About $25,000 was
spent in digging an artificial lako and in
laying out the grounds, making roads, etc.
This was not by any means the whole of
what went to make up the Fair City.
Several states put up special structures
for their exhibits, and private business en
terprises contributed no little toward the
making of what proved to be a very com
plete and adequate equipment for the gen
eral purpose of the fair. The Midway
was wholly constructed by the people who
went into it for direct profit, and while
done in tho cheapest wayr it 'turned out
to be an attractive feature of the fair
architecturally as well as in other re
spects. One of the first difficulties encountered
was tne Sunday question. Iowa, Missouri,
Nebraska and Illinois are the storm "cen
ter of a very earnest and old-fashioned
piety, and there was an element, large In
numbers and of the highest respectability,
which demanded that the exposition gates
should not be opened on Sunday. The
matter quickly grew into something of a
contention, but before feeling reached the
boiling point a, settlement was made on
the compromise basic the doors not being
opened on Sunday until after the morn
ing church hour 1 o'clock. After this ar
rangement was made the Sunday issue
gave no further trouble, the plan working
to the general satisfaction.
There is but one opinion in Omaha as
to the effect of this fair upon the welfare
of the city. I have talked with all classes
bankers, railroad men, editors, the Chief
of Police, ministers, the barber who
shaved me. the clerk at the hotel -and the
black boy who served my dinner. All bear
witness to one fact, namely, that the ex
position was tha beginning of better times
for Omaha. Far the roost comprehensive
report came to me in the course of a long
talk with Mr. Edward Rosewater, the ed
itor and publisher of the Omaha Bee, the
principal newspaper of Nebraska and one
of the most notable publications in the
country. Mr. Rosewater was one of the
originators of the exposition, a member
of its administrative board (there was no
director-general), and altogether the lead
ing spirit in the venture from start to
finish. "Tho enterprise wa3 conceived,"
Mr. Rosewater said to me this morning,
"as a means of giving our peoplo some
thing to do and something to think about
besides their misfortunes and embarrass
ments. It was absolutely necessary that
something should be done to revive public
confidence and stimulate the ambition and
hope of our people. Business and indus
trial conditions had come to be almost
desperate, and it was actually necessary
to do something to keep multitudes of
people from pulling up stakes and aban
doning the country. The drouth had hit
us, tho break-up of the. boom had hit us,
the general business stagnation had hit
us, Populism had hit us. The fair seemed
the only thing big enough and general
enough to appeal to the popular Imagi
nation. It vas hard to get started, but
it was comparatively easy after It got
started. Almost Immediately the effect
sought for In Its Inception was accom
plished. There were some who held back,
but the great mass of our people took
hold earnestly and hopefully. The two
and a half years of preparation were good
years, whereas we had looked for bad
years. Times were still flat, but there
was something ahead to work for and to
hope for, and the effect upon the public
mind and the public energy was almost
Immediate. Business picked up in a small
way from the start. Indeed, the condi
tions were such that the city might easily
have ialien Into extravagances If there
had been the available means for doing
it But we were still poor; money was
not to be had for speculative ventures;
and so we were saved from the wastes
which some other exposition cities, have
suffered through overbuilding.
"Tho fair i year was, of course, one of
great local activity the first good year
Omaha had had since 1SS3. The fair
seemed to put us on our feet all round.
It brought Omaha out of the hard-times
slough a good two years ahead of Us sis
ter cities in this part of the country. Not
only did we get out of it this splendid
general result, but most of us all who
had faith enough in the venture to make
their subscriptions in the form of a st;ck
purchase got our money back, or most
of it I, for example, subscribed $5000, and
at the wind-up received the check of tho
fair company for $4550. And there were
no afterclaps. The predictions which
were freely made that at the end we
should find ourselves loaded up with un
employed and disheartened people didn't
work out No distress, no hardship, no
period of business reaction followed the
fair. In every respect it was a public

PRESERVATION OF DEAD.
A Xerr Embalming; Process "Which.
Seems to Solve the Problem.
-An Interesting demonstration Is now
being given at the examination hall
of the Royal College of Surgeons of
a wonderful machine liiyented by a Bel
gian doctor for preserving the dead
against tho natural law of decay. His
apparatus effects a subtle chemical
change In the tissues of the dead body,
which make it Impervious to decomposi
tion. What the change Is even scien
tists cannot exactly say. They know
enough, however, to assert that It delayed
almost Indefinitely the dissolution Into
dust and ashes. This Is the latest as it
will be the most useful development In
the ancient art of embalming.
Its method Is more wonderful than any
yet discovered, because no Impious hand
need touch the dead. In the more mate
rial sense, nothing is done to the body
by handiwork; it Is simply subjected to
air heavily charged with the pungent
chemical known as formaline. Tnls air
penetrates the whole body, and. In the
course of time, makes the tissues In
soluble and the stomach and other or
gans sterile. Thus decay Is arrested with
out vlsceratlon. In a word, the dead are
given a new life.
Proof of It can be seen today in Brus
sels. There, In the public mortuary, are
coffined dead bodies changed by forma
line Into something which resists natural
decay. Constant exposure to the air,
which but for experimental purposes
could have been avoided, has had but one
result It has changed the skin from
the pallor of death Into a slightly brown
color through desiccation. One of these
machines Is now In London for demon
stration before the Royal College of
Surgeons. All the leading pathologists
In London have Investigated the new
system, and it is understood that they
are satisfied that the great problem of
preserving the dead has been entirely

The United States Government
feeds the soldiers at its army posts
with care. Experts, after many tests,
and much careful figurine, deter
mined that the right garrison ration
was one that gave a certain propor
tion of flesh-and bore-making ma
terial with a certain proportion of
working force. When they had it
figured down to exact percentage,
with small fractions behind the dec:-
nial point, somebody brought out the
scientific report on the nutriment in
Scotch Oats and showed that the
J army "ideal ration" was so close to
Scotch Oats (the oats with the
Piper on the package) that the ex
perts might have saved their trouble.
Brought down to simple figures,
Scotch Oats gives two units of build
ing material and nine units of work
ing force. This is nearly twice as
much building material, in propor
tion, as wheat, which gives only one
unit of building material, to every
seven units of working force, bcotcn
Oats is a better balanced food. The
wholc United States Army might
live for an indefinite time on Scotch
Oats, without needing other food.

"I am an old soldier," writes Mr. Geo.
Watson, of Newton, la "and I have
been a great sufferer from nervousness,
vertigo and spinal trouble. Have spent
considerable money for medicine and
doctors, but "with little benefit I was
so bad my mind showed signs of weak

and I know it saved my life."
