Next Friday Is the day set for a con
fab between the State Portage Commis
sioners and O. R. & N. officials. The
conferees will talk about right of way
for the portage road which, the Oregon
Legislature has authorized.
The O. R. & N. occupies certain lands
on the bank of the Columbia, through
which right of way will have to be se
cured by the state. The National Gov
ernment was about to acquire similar
Tights from the company for the boat
railway several years ago, but the nego
tiations were allowed to lapse on aban
donment of the boat railway project. By
the terms of those negotiations, the O.
31. & N. was to allow space for the boat
"Whether the company will give up land
Jor.the state portage road is a question
t)f deep interest to citizens of the interior
country, and especially of Portland. In
ns much as the O. R. & X. considers the
portage road Inimical to its Interests,
in any persons expect the company to re
Xuse to make the required concessions
and to fight any attempt to wrest any
rights from it.
The National Government now holds a
Strip of land about four miles long, which
it acquired for the proposed boat rail
way. This strip is about midway be.
tween Big Eddy and Celilo Falls. The
entire length of the portage road will be
miles. Therefore, even If the state
should receive permission from the Na
tional Government to use the ground
which Uncle Sam holds, rights of wayfor
about 4 miles would have to be secured
from the O. R. & N. and private indl
Portland citizens are deeply Interested
In the meeting next Friday. The session
will be behind closed doors, and only
the elect will be admitted, consisting of
the State Commissioners and officials of
the O. R. & N. However, several proml

doubtedly try to get in; anyhow, they will
Insist on knowing the results of the con

A. L. Mohler, president of the O. R. &

asked to give advance information about

"Where will the meeting be held " re
sponded Mr. Mohler, genially. "Right
here In this office," wafting his hand to
ward half a dozen easy chairs. "Right
here," he said again.
"Will the meeting be open to the pub
lic?" "No; but we shall probably give out a
statement after the session."
"What will be the subjects of discus

good-natured response. "I presume the

WILL REPAIR DRAW-REST.
South Protection of Steel Bridge to
The O. R. & N. Co. will next week begin
driving new piles for the draw protection
on the south side of the steel bridge, and
rwill entirely reconstruct, the protection.
The plies will be of the unusual length of
123 feet, and will be 100 in number, driven
In four lines. They will have strong sway
braces, constructed to resist pressure from
any direction, due to either the current,
driftwood or collision with steamers, and
will have heavy caps and side planking.
The north draw protection was similarly
repaired two years ago. It is expected that
this work will bo finished in about CO
NEW ROAD TO SPRING WATER,
Oregon Water Power Trains May
Soon Run to the Clackamas.
The Oregon Water Power & Railway
Company is rapidly completing Its branch
to Springwater, on the Clackamas River.
Work has just been started on the bridge
across Eagle Creek, which is the last
stream to be spanned. It will take about
two weeks to complete this bridge. Track
layers are rapidly putting down rails from
Boring. It is thought that in a month
trains may run through to the end of the
branch at Clackamas, -when construction
of the big power plant at that- point will
. be started.

In Portland much remains to be done. The
great embankment across the bottom be
low the Portland Woolen Mills is slowly
but steadily progressing. It Is two-thirds
finished. Owing to the magnitude of this
fill, more than a mile long and averaging
30 feet high, it will be some time before
it can be completed and track laid across
It. The next fill Is across the Martin
Bottom, south of Inman, Poulsen & Co.'s
sawmill. This embankment will be about
a mile in length. A trestle has been com
pleted across the bottom to facilitate the
work. It will be several months before
this branch around by Sellwood will be
completed, but trains can run to Clack

A considerable freight business already
has been developed from' Boring. Trains
of lumber and corkwood come In dally

FOR NEW CROP LOADING
GERM AX BARK X OMIA CHARTERED
FOR PORTLAXD LOADING.
Was Taken at 21s 3d, the Loxrest
Rate- Yet Paid for a. Xctt
The German bark Nomia was chartered
Monday to load wheat at Portland for the
United 'Kingdom at 21s 3d, the lowest rate
yet named for a new-crop ship. Even at
this figure most of the local exporters do
not regard the vessel as being cheap, as
ships are a drug on the market in San
Francisco at rates four or five shillings
under this figure. The freight situation
continues to give the exporters consid
erable anxiety. The amount of tonnage en
route and listed for Portland Is only about
half as large as the amount en route and
listed at the same date last year, whllo
the Puget Sound list is also slightly,
smaller than that of a year ago. To offset'
this apparent shortage there Is over 160.000
tons' net register more cn route for San
PROSPECTIVE PLAXS FOR
Francisco than there was at a corre
sponding date last year.
It is on this large excess of tonnage
that the Portland exporters are depend
ing to keep rates down at least to their
present level, with a possibility that even
lower rates may be secured as the season
wears on and other ships are added to the
list. There is very little tonnage secured
for early loading, a fact on which export
ers arc congratulating themselves, as the
old wheat will all be taken up to meet the
milling demands and the needs of the San
Francisco shippers. The Nomia is now en
route to Japan from New York with oil,
arid as soon as it Is discharged will come
across the Pacific in ballast. She was on
the en route list about a year ago, and
lost a fine charter by falling to arrive on
time. She was afterwards chartered at a
lower rate and sailed from Portland early

C W. Sherman has Just returned from
a trip to the St Helens mining district
where he went as the guest of Dr. and
Mrs. H. W Coe, who, with their three
boys are spending the Summer at their
country home on Spirit Lake. Mr. Sher
man reports that the St Helens mining
district Is very active and the center of
activities is the group of copper mines
controlled by Dr. Coe, which are receiv
ing the doctor's personal attention this
Summer. The main tunnel Is now in over
a quarter of a mile with several cross
cuts, one of 350 feet, all laid with steel
track. Several hundred thousand
tons of rich copper ore is al
ready on the dump. A good wagon
road is now completed from Cas
tle Rock, Wash., and a telegraph line
reaches Turtle Postofflce, which is within
24 miles of the lake and will undoubted
ly be extended to the mines this year. A
sawmill Is in operation at the mine and
tho air drills are bing run night and day.
Surveys are being made for a railroad,
which will penetrate the largest and
finest body of timber on the Pacific Coast
and will undoubtedly reach the mines
within a year. Wonderful aevelopments
are going forward In that country and
great changes are predicted speedily. Sev

SNATCH LIFE FROM SURF
HEROIC DEEDS OF OFFICIAL
WATCHERS OF THE SEA.
In Course of Duty, They Face Perils
That ailghf Appall Bravest
The total number of vessels stranded m
Oregon waters during the ten years ended
June 30, 1302, is shown by the annual re
port of the United' States Life Saving
Service to have been 78. During the same
period the number of vessels going
aground in Washington waters was 73. In
Puget Sound alone no less than 30 such
casualties were recorded, while at the
mouth of the Columbia two vessels were
stranded, one. on Clatsop Spit, anil one on
Sand Island. The number of casualties
for Oregon is nearly one-half made up of
strandings at the mouth of the Coquille
River, where 32 vessels went aground. For
the last year three casualties of this
nature were recorded In Puget Sound and
none In the Columbia.
The number of disasters occurring In
j the Thirteenth Life Saving District, em
j bracing the Pacific Coast, was 32, only
t two lives being lost, and tlc property loss
i being coniineci to 539,570. In the whole
I United States there were 745 disasters, 25
! lives lost and $2,274,335 worth of property
! lost With two exceptions, the number
i of disasters to vessels last year was the
greatest In the history of the department
but in spite of this only 19 lives were lost
from, documented Ytesels those of .five
tori3 and over and only six from smaller
The work of the life-saving service, a3
shown in the report. Is one of constant
effort and of frequent heroism. Assist
ance of various kinds was rendered 4S0
veesels. In addition to 615 that were worked
off when stranded, piloted out of danger
ous places and similarly assisted. Warning
to 217 vessels running into danger was
given. Surfboats landed 7S2 persons;
lifeboats, 65; gasoline launches, 266; river
life skiffs, 34; station boats, 218, and by
the breeches buoy 213 In addition 61
persons were brought ashore by lines and
In other ways.
Of persons who were rescued from posi
tions of danger, other than from vessels,
the life-service men picked up three aero
nauts whose parachutes dumped them Into
the sea, a man who tried to commit sui
cide under temporary excitement, another
who was fast asleep on the ties of a
rallroati track, a elecpy man who was
dozing on the edge of a pier and in dan
ger of rolling Into the water, and several
persons from danger on the ice.
Of all the disasters that to the barge
Wadena, off Shovelful Shoal. Massa
chusetts, Is the most appalling, owing to
the needless losa of life that ensued. The
Monomoy crew pulled out to the stranded
barge in a heavy sea and took off the five
men aboard her. While the surfmen were
in tho act of clearing the boat from her
dangerous position under the barge, the
rescued men were thrown Into an ungov
ernable panic by the shock of a heavy
sea. They jumped from their place?, clung
to the necks of tho oarsmen, and crowded
them from their thwarts. As the surf
men were straining every nerve to calm
the men and keep the boat upright they
were capsized by a comber. In the icy
water and the smothering foam, the men
were one by one washed from their hold
on the overturned boat, and in a few
minutes but one was left alive. Meantime
the plight of the surfboat had been ob
server from another stranded barge, the
Fitzpatrick, and Captain Mayo, despite
the warnings of his companions, determ
ined to go to the aid of the drowning
men. Getting a 12-foot dory, with Impro
vised thole pins and two sawed-off oars,
into the water, with consummate skill anu
judgment he swept across the heaviest
line of breakers and in the direction of
Ellis, who managed to clamber Into the
dory. Mayo still had the worst part of
his work before him. He could not re
turn to the barge or shore 'inside a shel
tering point, but had to make his landing
where the surf was most dangerous. With
great skill and nerve he ran in on a wave,
and came safely to shore with Ellis.-
The only loss of life from documented
vessels In Oregon waters occurred at
Yaquina Bay, December 4, 1201. The barge
Whoeier, which had been abandoned by
the tug C. R. Vosburg, drifted ashore, and
was overwhelmed by terrific combers. As
if by a miracle but one of the crew of
four was lost

Skin, Scalp and Blood
From Pimples to Scrofula
From Infancy to Age
Speedily Cured by Guticura
When All Else Fails.
The agonizing Itching and burning of
the skin,, as in Eczema; the frightful
scaling, as In psoriasis ; the loss of hair
and crusting of the scalp, as in scalled
head; the facial disfigurements, as in
acne and ringworm; the awful suffer
ing of infants," and anxiety of worn
out parents, as In, milk crust, tetter and
sajt rheum, all demand a remedy of
almost superhuman virtues to success
fully cope with them. That Cuticura
Soap, Ointment and Resolvent are such
stands proven beyond all doubt No
statement is made regarding them that
is not justified by the strongest evi
dence. The purity and sweetness, the
power to afford immediate relief, the
certainty of speedy and permanent cure,
the absolute safety and great economy,
have made them the standard skin
cures, blood purifiers and humour reme
dies of the civilized world.
Bathe the affected parts with hot
water and Cuticura Soap, to cleanse the
surface of crusts and scales and soften
the thickened cuticle. Dry, without
rubbing, and apply Cuticura Oint
ment freely, to allay itching, Irritation
and inflammation, and soothe and heal,
and, lastly, take Cuticura Resolvent, to
cool and cleanse the blood. This com
plete local and constitutional treatment
affords instant relief, permits rest and
sleep in the severest forms of eczema
and other itching, burning and scaly
humours of the skin, scalp and blood,
and points to a speedy, permanent and
economical cure when all else fails.

Badly Swollen, Could

. Heart Affected.
Dr. Miles ' Heart Cure and
Nervine Cured le.
"I send you my testimonial hoping it will
influence someone to use your remedies for
the relief and cure of the diseases for which
they are recommended. I am constantly
recommending them in this locality often
indirectly to strangers. The worst case of
nervous piostration I ever saw or rather
heard of was that of a young man, a stranger
who sent me word thanking me for the in
formation and stating that to his certain
knowledge, Dr. Miles' Nervine and Heart
Cure had saved his life. As to my own case
I was afflicted with heart trouble and nerv
ousness due to the excessive use of tobacco
which I had used from boyhood. A man
whom your medicine had cured of tobacco
heart met me.onthe street in Bakersfield one
day when my feet were so badly swollen I
could scarcely walk and I was suffering con
stantly from smothering spells, choking sen
sation, pain and oppression around the heart.
He tola me to use Dr. Miles Heart Cure and
Nervine. I bought three bottles of each and
when they were gone the aggravating
symptoms had disappeared, but to make a
sure thing of it 1 bought two more bottles
of Nervine and am today perfectly well. I
have used the Dr. Miles Anti-Pain Pills and
consider all of Dr. Miles' medicines the very
best of household remedies and. wish that
every sufferer might learn of their value." J.
