WHEAT FOR JAPAN
Steamship Will toad a Full
Cargo at Tacoma
CHARTERED BY 'FRISCO FIRM
ZiScIc of Transportation. Facilities
Prevented the Baalneaa Coming;
-to Portland Uxmataral Di
.Terlon of Trade.
Japan, 'which has been a large pur
chaser of flour. Is now In the market
for wheat, and a 5000-ton steamer has
been chartered to load at Tacoma, with
"Walla "Walla and blucstem. 4
Somo of this wheat has been pur
chased In territory that Is tributary
to Portland, but the Inability of the
regular Oriental liners out of Portland
to handle it has caused the buyers to
eend it to Puget Sound.
Practically all of the space on the
October and November steamers out
of Portland has been taken, and the
overflow to the Puget Sound lines from
Portland is enormous.
The British , steamship Heathdene, a
BO&O-ton carrier, . has been chartered by
Eddy Falk and the American Trading
Company, to. load a full cargo of wheat at
Tacoma for Japan not later than Decem
ber 1. This transaction caused a mild
sensation In shipping circles where It
was-supposed that the Japanese, demand
lor wheat had b.een satisfied. -According
to local dealers, Eddy Falk & Co. were
offered the cargo for the Heathdene at
Portland at lower figures than they paid
on Puget Sound, but the inability to se
cure space on the Oriental liners running
out of Portland compelled them to take
their business to another port. This
would have been unnecessary had they
originally intended to make the shipment
on a specially chartered steamer- Instead,
when they began picking up the cargo It
was with a view to sending it forward
on the regular liners. They apparently
knew It was Impossible to secure space
on the Portland steamers for such an
amount of wheat, and accordingly diverted
It to Pujjet Sound, where they were as
sured plenty of space on the regular
liners, and nearly as good facilities as
Portland offered for sending It on a spe
It Is apparent from this move early In
the season, that If the Japan wheat trade
is to Increase as the flour trade has In
creased, Portland will .labor under the
game handicap in the way of transporta
tion that she now suffers In. the flour trade
originating In this territory. Every Orien
tal liner leaving Portland for .months has
Been obliged to turn away freight -which
could not bo handled, and so large are
the .offerings that practically all of the
space is taken as far ahead as December.
In contrast to this congested condition
of trade Is the "situation on Puget Sound,
where nearly every steamer going out has
unfilled space; and everything offered Is
- taken promptly. A flour dealer at any
point in the Northwest can sell flour In
the .Orient for shipment from Tacoma or
Seattle at .any month ho may name, and
have positive assurance that there will
be a steamer available for It when It Is
ready to -ship. No such assurance can
be given the Portland shippers.
If the one steamer per month meets
with no delays she may get around so that
the "contracts for shipment on that month
can be met. If she does not get here, the
acceptance of the order by the Oriental
buyer depends entirely on the state of
the market- Dealers do not care to take
such chances, and It is this fact that has
caused theflour business to steadily drift
away from Portland, and as Is apparent
by the . charter of the Heathdene, the
wheat business or that portion of it which
will go across the Pacific will follow it,
"We have given up trying to get space
on the Portland steamers" said the rep
resentative of a prominent shipping firm
in discussing the matter yesterday. "For
months It has Jeen Impossible to secure
enough to do any good, and last month
we were shut out entirely after being
promised the space. As we had already
contracted for the space, the company
finally settled the matter by absorbing -the
local rate from Portland to Tacoma and
over 1000 tons of stuff was sent that way
Slfice then we have routed over 4000 tons
of wheat and flour for the Orient by way
of Puget Sound, because there Is no Cer
tainty that we will not again be caught
by the overcrowded Portland line."
Another shipper whose business
amounts to many thousand tons per
"I have about given up trying to send
anything to the Orient from Portland,
and .-order all of my stuff from east of
the mountains to. Puget Sound. The O.
R. & N. excuse that they are losing money
on the line may be a good one, but the
Puget -Sound lines must also be losing
money for they do not carry as full car
goes either way as are carried by the
Portland steamers. At the same time they
are protecting their rail connections, and
each. year finds the Northern Pacific with
a little stronger hold on territory which
formerly found an outlet by way of Port
The statement that If the Portland line
Is losing money the Puget Sound line must
be losing much more proportionately. Is
corroborated by the actual business han
dled by the steamers of the two lines. The
steamship Victoria, the last regujar liner
to leave Tacoma, carried 1500 tons of flour
and about 400 tons of miscellaneous
freight. The steamship IndravellL the
last steamship leaving Portland for the
Orient, carried 5600 tons of flour and about
500 tons of miscellaneous freight, the
flour shipment alone being more than
three times as great as the entire cargo
of the Victoria. That Portland can sup
ply the cargo whenever the steamers are
available Is shown beyond dispute by the
situation this month when owing to pre
vious delays there will be two of tho P.
& A. liners sail from here. These two
liners .will carry over 100,000 barrels of
fldur, or more than twice as much as was
carried by the last four steamers sailing
for the Orient from Puget Sound. The
Portland Flouring Mills Company, which
are the heaviest shippers on both the
Portland and the Puget Sound lines, have
this month helped out the showing made
by Portland by securing space for 20,000
barrels of flour on a steamer going for
31anila with lumber. This shipment.
however. Is of small consequence c.om-
pared with the large amount that will be
diverted to Puget -Sound on account of
lack of space on the Portland steamers.

the- wisdom and honesty of the American
people and their ability to solve each of
the problems that has arisen as a result
of the organization of capital on the one
hand and the organization of labor upon
the other. He asserted that the organi
zation of capital is necessary In order to
promote the development of Industrial
enterprises, and that no effort should be
made to prevent such organization. The
organization of labor Is also necessary
for the protection of the rights of those
who must deal with organized capital, for
it Is only by organizing that labor can
prevent oppression. The state, he said,
does not pass laws which help the people
In general to become wealthy, but It does
slmetimes pass laws which aid in the ac
cumulation of wealth by a favored few.

Labor organizations are not always

Governor Chamberlain urged tho labor

$500 REWARD FOR WOMEN
WHO CANNOT BE CURED.
Backed up by over a third of a century
of remarkable and uniform cures, a record
such as no other remedy for the diseases
and weaknesses peculiar to women ever
attained, the proprietors and makers of Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription now feel
fully warranted in offering to pay $300 in
legal money of the United States, for any
case of Leucorrhea, Female Weakness, Pro
lapsus, or Falling of Womb which they
cannot cure. All they ask is a fair and
reasonable trial of their means of cure.

A GREAT LABOR STRIKE."7
Millions of "Workers Out
One of the greatest labor strikes you
can possibly imagine Is that which takes
place in your body when you eat im
proper food. Your body is a workshop
and in it are millions and millions of
workers tissue builders. In the stomach
alone there are more than five million of
these workers, whose business It is to de
vise the means to build the body. If the
food you eat is of a poor quality these
five million tollers these five millions of
little microscopic pepsin makers strike,
and millions and millions of other tissue
1 builders in other parts of the body also
strike through sympathy. They may
strike for but a short time, but it Is long
enough to throw a lot of the delicate and
intricate machinery In that wonderful
workshop of yours out of repair and
cause all manner of trouble.
The way to avoid labor strikes in the
body is to supply that vast horde of arti
sans whlcL build it with proper food ma
terial, and for this purpose there is noth
ing so good as Shredded Whole Wheat
Biscuit, the only naturally porous food
made from wheat.' It is light, crlap,
wholesome, and can he digested with ease.
Shredded Wheat makes rich, red blood
blood that makes strong men, women, and
"I have used Shredded Wheat Biscuits In
hospital practice and And the results highly
satisfactory. They axe etDeclally beneficial In
cases of Indigestion, enmollcated with constlpo-

as one of the very best remedies I have ever
prescribed." B. P. Anderson, M. D. Colorado

Our methods appeal particularly
to men who have tried other treat
ments to meet with disappoint
ment, or at least, only temporary
relief. We wish to Impress upon
these men the fact that our su
perior skill justifies us In making
men's diseases our specialty. "We
wish to prove conclusively that we
are not offering treatment such as
most physicians are able to Jglve.
No matter If other doctors "have
failed to cure you, feel fully as
sured that If we accept your case
the treatment given will be abso
lutely scientific and fully effec
tive. Contracted Disorders
If you care to be cured thorough
ly and beyond the possibility of a
relapse or a chronic stage, you
should come directly to U3 for
treatment. "We have cured so many
cases that we know exactly how
to handle them. Our remedies are
unlike the ordinary, and we cure
ln about half the usual time re
Painless treatment that dissolves
the obstructing tissue and renders
cutting or dilating unnecessary.
If other physicians have treated
you for so-called "weakness" you
were probably only temporarily
helped if at all, and the reason is
very apparent when the cause of
loss of power In man Is understood.
"Weakness" Isn't a weakness at all
in a literal sense, but Is merely a
symptom of chronic inflammation
In the prostate gland. Our system
of treatment, which Is mainly a
local one, removes this inflamma
tion, and is the only known method
that has ever permanently restored
strength and visor.
Do not submit to an operation for
varicocele. Our system of painless
treatment cures soundly, without
cutting, ligature, or caustic No
failures, and the patient need not
be detained a single day from his

virus from the system, using only
the most harmless blood-cleansing

will give you advice and tell you
what Is your trouble. You will not
be obliged to place your case ln

No amount of newspaper adver
tising can build and maintain pro
fessional success. Honorable meth
ods and exceptional ability are es
sential. We take just pride In our
practice, which is the largest of its
kind ln Western America.
We send your interesting and in
structive book describing the male

nosing cases by letter enables us
to treat most cases at home.
