Seven Deported Chinese Sent Back
lir the Steamer Strike on the
Telephone Arrival of
the Vermont.
The China liner Indrapura, of the Port
land and Asiatic fleet, completed her cargo
at the O. R. & N. Alblna dock last night
and at an early hour this morning will
leave down stream bound for the Orient.
TherJndraoura takes out one of the larg
est cargoes she has ever carried and it
has been exceeded In value by out iew
shipments from Portland. The total value
of her freight is $204,640. The bulk of the
cargo consists of flour, amounting to
52.576 barrels, worth $189,274. This ship
ments exceeds by 1224 barrels the largest
cargo the same steamer has heretofore
carried, that of August, 1901, but Is 2000
barrels less than the Indravelll carried
outward In December, 1902, and only three
barrels less than the Indrasamha took last
October. The flour shipments by thls trip
of the Indrapura are destined for "ioko
homa, Kobe, Shimonosekl, Mojl, Noga
saki and Hong Kong.
Flour Is not the only cargo carried on
h stpamer bv anv means. An unusual
and at the same time Important shipment
is a lot of 1510 boxes of Oregon apples tnat
arc frnJmr to Hone Kong. Shanghai, lien.
Tsin and Japanese ports. Apples have
heretofore been shipped to the Orient from
Portland in small lots, but never before
in such a large quantity. The Hong Kong
cargo also contains two lots or mmuer
mMirtnf- "44 wis feet. Other items on the
ctMTnpr's manifest are 150 cases of cigar
ettes for Hong Kong and Shanghai, 3
hogsheads of tobacco for Chemulpo, 71
bundles of wire mattresfes ior usski, h
hnnrile nf leather for Yokohama, 50 pack
ages iOf provisions for Nlu Chwang, and
four cases of tea, one .package of plug
tobacco, one package of books and two
bundles of empty sacks.
Twentv-five Chinese passengers will
travel across the Pacific in the Indra
pura's steerage, seven of them much
against their wills. These unfortunate Ce
lestials had hopes of maxmg tneir ior-
tunes in this country, but the powers

of three of them that came In by way of
British Columbia and could not prove
their right to remain. They are being ae

appealing his case. He is being returneu

NEW YORK, Sept. 29. An inquiry or
dered by the Vatican regarding a move
ment favorable to the establishment of a
Western Catholic Patriarchate to Include
all Anglo-Saxon countries which might
be called semi-independent of Rome, has
just been completed, according to a Tri
bune dispatch from Rome. Evidence was
found of the existence of a movement of
this kind amopg the advanced section of
the clergy, especially the French and Irish,
who wisli to join forces with America to
give to the church a more modern and
liberal impulse.

passage up the Coast. The weather was
very lossy all the way and nothing was

The Vermont is a fine specimen of the
modern class of freight carrier. She is
a little smaller than the Indrapura, which
was lying near her yesterday, but has
greater beam and plenty of cargo capac-
ity.tThe steamship was built In Glasgow
in 1900. by Barclay, Curie & Co., and Is
owned by Gow, Harrison & Co., of that
port. Fhe is 376.2 feet long, 4S feot beam
and 26.2 feet depth of hold. Her gross
tonnage is 4271 and her net 2723 tons. The
same company is owner of quite a fleet
of freight steamers, the Vittorla, Virgin
ia. Vimiera, Vienna. Vcntnor, Venetla,
Valetta, Rosneath of Arroyo. The Vir
ginia has a registered tonnage of 2790, but
the others are smaller than the Vermont.
"bluff" was met with firmness. Since that
time the men evidently thought better of
the intention to force matters, and settled
down quietly to life aboard the ship. Their
conduct since that time has been such
that Cantaln Lauro did not hand in a re
port of it to the Italian Consul here, Dr.
Candlani, but has conciuaea to auow tne
acts to go unpunished.

their pay was in arrears for five weeks-

There was not much work left for them
to do, but still the boat Is not in condition
to enter service, even , if her machinery
were completed. This work Is In the
hands of the Willamette Iron & Steel
Works. They also have an unpaid bill
against the Arrow Company, but their
machinists were still at work on the boat
yesterday, so they evidently expect to be
paid. ' It is said there are other bills
against the boat for labor, lumber and
other material.
Why the company has gone behind in
these payments is a mystery to .people
along the water-front, as it was supposed
there was plenty of money back of the
concern. The principal stockholders of the
