THE MORNING' OKEGOOTAN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER. 4, 1904.
The Japanese Emperor's Birthday
His Subjects in Portland Celebrate Natal Anniversary With Enthusiasm
Tttv. blood-red banner of Japan, on a
white ground, emblem o the Bis-.
Ins Bun, had more significance than
usual to .Portland Japanese yesterday,
for the occasion "was the 52d anniver
sary of the birth of the Emperor of
Japan. The Japanese colony patiently
waited all day and evening-, hoping:
that the telegraph would at last flash
the news that Por;t Arthur had fallen,
but their celebration had to gretalong:
without that event happening. "Never
mind," was the invariable Japanese re
sponse, "it Is only a Question of time
when Port Arthur will be ours."
The Japanese "Vice-Consul, Tsunejl
Alba, held a reception at his offices in
the Commercial block, from 10 A. 1L to
8:30 P. 1L, and both American and Jap
anese tendered him congratulations.
Dainty lunch was served by smiling:,
polite Japanese, and cigars and cigar
ettes were not forgotten. Among the
callers was James Laldlaw, British
Consul at this port.
Nearly all the Japanese in this city
and suburbs attended a meeting held
last night in the Alisky building. Third
and Morrison streets, and the hall was
filled to overflowing with patriots and
American friends. All who could speak
ingusn, Deiore xne meeting Degan ais
caused the Russo-Japanese war, and, of
course, agreed that the Japanese are
great people. The stairways were deco
rated with colored lanterns, and in the
hall were more lanterns, and American
and Japanese flags entwined together.
On the platform were pictures of the
Emperor and Empress of Japan, and
these pictures were carefully kept cov
ered until a given moment. S. Ban was
chairman and he first spoke in Japanese
and then In English, proposing long
life, health and happiness to the Em
peror, and he also spoke on the com
fmercial expansion of Japan.
Considerable ceremony was observed
In the rolling up and down of the cur
tain hiding the pictures of the Em
peror and Empress. Addresses were also
delivered by "Vice-Consul Alba, H. Ka
mamoto, S. Wakabayashl, S. Toshioka,
and others. Several songs In Japanese
were sung by a sextet of young men,
and there was great enthusiasm when
averybody who could do so sang the
Japanese National anthem. Then a sa
lute was gtyen to the 'Emperor, there
were shouts of "Banzai," and the mer
rymakers went home to wait for more
war news.
TAKE NO ACTION YET
Neither Sheriff Nor Police Raid
Fantan Games.
LOOKOUTS IN PLAIN SIGHT
Chief Hunt Says It Will Be Difficult
to Convict Chinamen, and the
Charge of Graft Is Not
investigated.
No official investigation of the charges
made by Councilman Zimmerman Wednes
day that fantan games were running in
Chinatown under protection of the graft
system has yet been made by Chief of
Police Hunt. The resolution passed by
the Council asking the Mayor to instruct
the Chief to this effect has not been sent
to Judge "Williams."
But there is little need of any Investi
gation, so far as the present operations
of the fantan games are concerned. Sec
ond street last evening was much the
same as ever. The alleyways of several
'fantan games were dark, but in others the
lookout man could be seen just the same,
as usual. Apparently, the heathen Chinee
who wanted to risk his wages could do
so without hunting long for the oppor
tunity. "It will be hard to catch them," said
3Iayor "Williams yesterday. "When an
officer gets there he won't find a China
man or any game. I haven't seen the
resolution since it was read in the Coun
cil." The street numbers of SI establishments
where it was reported fantan games were
in progress was attached to the resolu
tion. These are hardly needed by an
experienced officer, for the location of
every Chinese gambling-house is known
to every one at all acquainted with that
quarter.
Councilman Zimmerman's direct charge
of graft is a matter which the other city
officials do not like to discuss. The fact
that Sheriff Word ordered these places.
closed, and raided several, and that they
are now running and have been running
ever since a week or two of the shut-up
order, gives point to Mr. Zimmerman's
charge. So it is a delicate subject for dis
cussion around the City Hall and Court
house. Sheriff Word has again ordered the
fantan games to close, and if the man
date is not Qiuckly obeyed more raids will
probably be made. The boss gamblers
have been busy in the interim, however.
and more big Iron-bound doors than ever
keep out white intruders, officers especi
ally.
Thirteen Chinese lotteries have also been
running. These have not been molested
by any official. Their location is also
known to every well-informed policeman
and detective.
Regarding the fantan proposition. Chief
of Police Hunt said yesterday: "Of
course, I at present know nothing of the
situation. I shall, however. Investigate
the 34 places named by the Council, and
report back to that body the condition
of affairs as I find them. I shall en
deavor to discover whether fantan is be
ing played in those places or not, and let
the Council know. At present there is
little to say regarding the case. After
an investigation I will .perhaps, -bo able
to say more."
INDIAN AS ADVANCE 'AGENT.
M. F. Vernur Represents Musical Or
ganlzatlon of Alaskan Aborigines.
M. F. "Vernur, an Indian of Met-
lakatla, Alaska, is in Portland as the
advance guard of the Metlakatla Indian
Band.' The band Is perhaps the oldest
Indian band in existence, having been
formed by Father Duncan SO years ago.
It is composed of 40 pieces and Is well
trained and recognized as a musical or
ganization of good standing. At the" pres
ent tune there is nut one man witn tne
company who was a member at the time
of Its organization. This man Is Roderick
Murchison. who was the first bandmaster.
Father Duncan. Is the oldest missionary
of the Northwestern country. He is now
more than 70 years of age, and went to

Britian, by adverse legislation, took from
the Indians their lands In British Co
lumbia Father Duncan gathered his fol
lowing around him and took the whole
tribe to the Island of Mctjakatla, where
he has built up a' city and taught his In
dians the ways of civilization. There are
now 1500 Indians on the island.
Mr. Vernur will return to Seattle thla

PLANS FOE PASSENGER AGENTS
Northern Pacific Officials Will
Entertained in Portland.
Be
A M. Cleland, general passenger agent
of the Northern Pacific, has wired A. D.
Charlton, assistant general passenger
agent, that the party of Northern Pa
cific officials now touring the territory of
the company would reach Spokane on No
vember 9. Mr. Charlton will leave Port
land on the evening of November S for
Spokane, where he will join the party and
accompany It on the rest of its trip
through the Northwest.
It is calculated that the excursionists
will reach Portland on November 15 and
plans are being made for their entertain
ment. A trip will be arranged for the
party to the mouth of the Columbia and
possibly as far out over the bar as the
weather conditions will permit. Another
excursion will be taken up the Columbia
to The Dalles, while side trips will be
made to Oregon City, Vancouver, Esta-
cada and the other points of interest.
It is Mr. Charlton's wish to have the
party stay in Portland for at least three
days in order that the members can see
everything that is to be seen in and
around the city. Trolley rides will be pro
vided for and especial prominence will be
given the visit to and Inspection of the
Lewis and Clark Exposition grounds.
The plans for the entertainment are now
under general discussion and definite ar
rangements will be made as soon as It is
known just when the visitors will reach
the city and how long they will remain.
USE FOE WASTE LIMBER.
Beliingham Man Proposes to Make
Big Profits From Sawmills.
i
W. E. Young, of the Pacific American
Tar Company, of Beliingham, Wash.,
which has been running a wood distillery
on Puget Sound for several months, is
in Portland talking up the establishment
of retorts at the sawmills here. If he
can have a sufficient guarantee from the
mill men that they will furnish him the
crude oil, which is manufactured by
simple process, he will establish a re
finery in Portland. Be has Just estab
lished one In Vancouver, B. C The
thing about the scheme which appeals
to the mlllowners Is that It turns the
waste Into a profitable product.
Mr. Young says ho will establish a re
finery here if the mills will guarantee him
COO gallons a day. Each cord of wood
will turn out 25 gallons of crude material.
which can be made Into tar, tar oil and
turpentine. The sort of refinery he would
establish here will turn out per month
1200 or 1500 gallons of turpentine, 55 or 00
barrels of tar, 10 barrels of tar oil and
2000 sacks of charcoal.
No Hose Wagon for Fireboat.
The fire committee of the Executive
Board yesterday read over Chief Camp
bell's estimate of the departmental ex
pense sfor 1905. Mayor Williams suggested
that the hose wagon for the fireboat be
dropped. As to the formation of fivo new
companies. Chief Campbell explained that
he had estimated for six months only, as
the other half of the year would probably
be over before the houses and apparatus
were ready.
George F. Walker, superintendent of the
fire-alarm system, recommended that the
firemen's private alarm wires to their
homes be removed from the telephone
poles or arranged as are the regular alarm
wires. A short time ago a telephone line
man was injured because one of his com
pany's wires was crossed with a private
wire which had in turn crossed , with
trolley wire. The protests of the company
resulted in the recommendation, but
Mayor Williams said there was no press
ing need for the city to assume the ex
pense.
There was one fire alarm for each day
in October. Two old horses belonging to
the department were stolen from a pasture
in South Portland during the month.

QUESTION OF WATER
Senator Fulton Investigates
Irrigation Projects.
SEES GREAT POSSIBILITIES
Harney and Klamath Counties Im
press Him as Being Worthy of
Special Attention From the
Government Bureau.
Senator Fulton has taken un the enuse
of Harney and KlamatBTCounty irrigation
projects and will urge them on the Rec
lamation Bureau at Washington. He has
Just returned from a trip to Burns, whith
er he went to look Into the SUvies River
irrigation project and to speak for Roose
velt and Fairbanks. Two weeks ago he
visited Klamath County on the same mis
sion. "In Harney County," said the Sena
tor yesterday, "I found the people de
pressed with the idea that the grand pos
sibilities of the Silvles River project were
overlooked by the Jsatlonal Government
and influential citizens of Oregon. The
Harney country is remote from centers of
the state s activity as it has no railroad;
it seems to be neglected by commercial
Interests and it feels that its resources
are not duly appreciated. But I gave as
surance that this part of Oregon has 2
very deep interest and that it will do all
It can to promote Harney s irrigation
work and to secure railroad connections."
Mr. Fulton does not agree with Mr.
Newell, chief of the reclamation service.
who believes that Silvles River does not
afford enough water for the proposed irri
gation work. Mr. Whistler and other
Government engineers who examined the
possibilities of the project estimated that
enough water was available by damming
SUvies River so as to store up floods to
irrigate 300,000 acres of land. But Mr.
Newell later decided that not more than
80,000 or 100,000 acres could be made pro
ductive and deemed the project impractic
able for the present.
"In my opinion," said the Senator, "Mr.
Newell overestimates the amount of water
necessary to make that land productive.
All of us who live in Oregon know that
a little water will go a long way and do
a great deal. In Umatilla County are
semiarid lands that yield bountifully of
grain frequently In defiance of cherished
theories. I know of one farm in particu
lar in that county which produces from
40 to 50 bushels of wheat to the acre on
that kind of 'land. I am very sure that
Silvles River brings down enough water
to reclaim far more land than has been
credited to it by Mr. Newell."
Mr. Fulton proceeded to describe the
soil and the capabilities which he had ob
served it to possess under semiarid con
ditions. A tract of 30 acres several miles
north of Burns, he said, produced 80
bushels of barley to the acre this year
and wasn't blessed with much water.
either. The annual rainfall, 15 Inches, 1ST.
Fulton thinks, would help to make the
irrigation problem simple.
Silvles River flows Into Malheur Lake,
where It glints in the Summertime to
tantalize the thirsty land surrounding.
Use of the water for Irrigation is ex
pected to cause contraction of the lako
and render land now submerged fit for
agriculture. The altitude of the lake
basin is about 4000 feet, yet apples, pears,
cherries, grapes and many other fruits
crow profusely. The Senator had never
seen finer potatoes nor cereals.
"I think the National Government
should undertake this reclamation project
rlcht away." said the Senator. "What
ever influence I possess will be spent in
that direction. Effort In behalf of Harney
County will not delay the Malheur project
which finds most favor with the Reclama
tion Bureau. There Is room In Oregon
for several great irrigation works, and
since this state has contributed so large
a share of the reclamation fund it is en
titled to the expenditure of a big -sum
of money for irrigation."
The people of Harney County, Mr. Ful
ton remarked, would bo glad to assist the
Government In. acquiring necessary lands
if the Government would point the way
and say what it wanted. About 10 per
cent of" the land required Is still retained
by the Government.
The KlamAth project Mr. Fulton de
scribed as similar In many respects to
that In Harney. Its elevation Is about the
same, but & great deal more water
available. Several private Irrigation en
terprises are now under way there, one
of them headed by Henry Ankeny, but
they have promised to yield to the Gov
eminent when it desires to enter. Some
320.000 acres could be reclaimed in Klam
ath.
Senator Fulton fears that railroad ex
tensions from California may make Klam
ath County tributary to that state. Har
ney County he views with less apprehen
sion since its natural rail connections will
be through Sumpter and Baker City. The
best rail route from Western to Eastern
Oregon, he says, would be by the proposed
line it the Corvallls & Eastern out of
Albany.
BELIEVES IN FAIRY TALES.
Miss Harriet Hassler Thinks Children
Should Have Them.
It was many months ago that Miss Har
riet Hassler, children's librarian at the
Portland Library, won the heart of each
child who came to the reading room and'
into her sunny presence, and now Miss
Hassler, having met a large roomful of
mothers in convention to learn about
beneficial reading matter for children, has
acquired just so many more friends and
co-workers. She had been invited to meet
with the Home Training Association yes
terday at the Young Women's Christian
association rooms and gave a thoroughly
sensible and useful talk on books for very
young children, not forgetting the first
lullabies, nursery sorigs and picture books.
which are to be carried into the Mother
Goose rhymes and jingles, fables, myths
and legends. In addition to these were
recommended certain books from which
stories Bhould be told to children: "King
Arthur Stories," "Robin Hood Tales,"
Hawthorne's "Tanglewood Tales" and
"Wonder Book," Lang's "Book of Ro
mance" and certain parts of the Pilgrim's
Progress. In addition a few nature books
were suggested, "Birds and Nature,"
which Is to be obtained in bound volumes,
being mentioned as especially good.
Charming books of songs for children
are the lullabies of Eugene Field and Rob
ert Louis Stevenson, set to music by Reg
lnald De Koven, Neldllngcrs "Small Songs
for Small Singers," illustrated in color by
Walter Babbitt; "Old English Singing
Games," and "Nursery Songs and Rhymes
of England," both arranged by Alice
Gomme and illustrated by Winifred Smith,
Miss Hasslers ideas on stories for chil
dren are of the most wholesome sort; she
believes In good, sturdy hero tale of
ancient Greece and Rome, and of the
valiant Norsemen, and has no sympathy
with the idea once prevalent that fairy
tales, at least of the kind set down by
Hans Andersen and the Brothers Grimm,
can do Intelligent children any harm.
"What a pitiful childhood is that," said
Miss Hassler, "which passes in ignorance
of such royal playfellows as Andrew Lang
and Hawthorne, of the Brothers Grimm
and of Hans Christian Andersen, the king
of story tellers, toward whom Jo'hn White
Chadwick so beautifully expresses the
children's attitude when he speaks of
hearing a familiar sound at heaven's door
When Banish Hans that way did softly wend.
A sound of children making merriest din.
Of -welcome as the old man entered in.
After discussing the child's first songs
and stories, Miss Hassler said:
"Let us not destroy the child's naturally
correct eye for color and line by giving
him florid, cheap picture, books, with im
possible green cows and red cats, when
such really attractive books as Grace
Greenaways, Walter Crane's and Boutet
De Monvel's can be bad from 25 cents
up. What Is the uso of demanding that
they be truthful If we are constantly giv
ing them pictures that are false to Nature,
false to art and false to common sense?
Then while we arc trying to train their
sense of beauty in line and color let us
see to It that we are not giving them
picture books of the Maud Humphrey
type with overdressed, self-conscious
children little prigs with pasty pink and
white faces, yellow curls arid expression
less china blue eyes and very stiff be
ruffled petticoats. These will not only
pervert their sense of really wholesome,
childlike beauty, but give them false
standards of excellence, making them
think that ruffles make the child.
"Compare one of Boutet De Monvel's in
I ml table baby figures to a Maud Hum
phrey child; there is more character in
one funny little leg of the former than In
the whole picture of the Maud Humphrey
type."

FINE ITALIAN SHIP
S, Celeste Brings Miscellaneous
Cargo From Antwerp.
ONE OF BEST OF HER CLASS
Custom-House Report for October
8hows Large Increase In Value of
Exports End of Northern
Sealing Season.
The arrival of three more deep-water
sailers livened up the harbor yesterday.
The newcomers were the Italian ship S.
Celeste, British ship Durbridge and French
bark Asie. The Italian vessel has miscel
laneous cargo from Antwerp. The other
two came in ballast from California, the
Durbridge to load lumber and the Asie
after wheat.
The 9. Celesto was by far the most at
tractive one of the trio. Seldom has a
finer appearing ship reached this port.
She is modern In every respect, and has
every labor-saving device for the handling
of cargo or operation of the ship that can
be found on any craft. Besides this the
vessel is exceedingly trim and tidy about
her decks and her cabins are furnished
handsomely. The smart uniforms of her
officers also attracted much attention.
The ship Is commanded by Captain Gut-
seppe aiaresca, a Drotner-in-iaw or tne
owner, and he was accompanied on the
voyage by hl3 young wife. Though hail
ing from Castllamare, the S. Celeste Is
owned by Paulo Samengo. of Naples. She
was launched at Dumburton In December,
1902 at the yards of McMillan & Son, Ltd.
Her registered tonnage Is 1946 and her di
mensions are: Length, 267.5 feet; beam.
40.1 feet; depth of hold. 23.6 feet. Paulo
Samengo also owns the SL Amalla, of 1751
tons, and the S. Margherlta, of 17S7 tons.
The former Is now on the way from
Sundswall to Natal, and the latter, which
Is commanded by a brother of Captain
Maresca is en route from Newcastle to
Caldera.
"Captain Maresca reports a generally
uneventful passage out from Antwerp,
which was made In 161 days to the Co
lumbia River. When 20 day3 out from the
Belgian port a young sailor had the mis
fortune to fall overboard, but, being
good swimmer, he divested himself of hla
clothing and succeeded in keeping afloat
until a boat from the ship could reach
him.
The S. Celeste is consigned to Taylor,
Young & Co.. and brings the following
cargo, the discharging of which will com'
mence at Fuller's dock this morning: Fifty
cases or wniSKy, one caee oi terra coua
statuary, 250 bags of superphosphate, 350
cases pi Deer, 33 casKs or. picmes, a cases
of currle powder, 570 cases of lucca oil, 17
cases of vinegar, 1 cask of essence of cof
fee, 15 barrels of ginger ale, 20 cases of
gin, 5 cases of Jamaica rum. U.iOO bar
rels of cement and a quantity of
coke. The ship is chartered by the North'
western Warehouse Company, and when
her Inward cargo la out will begin load
ing wheat at Irving dock for Europe.
The well-known French bark Asie, Cap
tain Olllvand, is also chartered by the
same firm for grain loading. She is in bal
last from San Pedro, and made the run
up in 21 days. No incident of Importance
occurred on the trip. The bark was given
anchorage In the lower part of the harbor,
and today will move to one of the ballast
docks, probably Banfleld's, to discharge.
The British ship Durbridge, in command
of Captain Nannell, came up from San
Francisco after an uneventful passage
24 days. She Is under engagement to the
North Pacific Mills to take a lumber cargo
to Delagoa Bay. She lsnow lying at Mar
tin's dock.

Europe Is Being Remeasured.
ASTORIA. Dr.. Nov. 3. (Special.) The
French bark Europe, which arrived in a
few days ago from Hobart, is being re
measured by Deputy Collector of Customs
McCue In order that the correct amount
of tonnage dues may be collected from
her. Her papers show her net tonnage to
be 2070 tons, but It appears that In' France
exemptions in the measurements are al
lowed that are not permitted In this coun
try and an agreement was recently made
between the two eovernments that all
French vessels coming to America shall
have an amended register so that they
shall pay tonnage dues here on the same
basis that American vessels pay in that
country.
The Europe has not been to her home
port since this agreement went into effect.
so a remeasurement here was necessary.
This is the first instance of the kind at
this port, but one vessel was recently re-
measured at San Francisco, the result be
ing that her- tonnage dues were increased
by about iU. The Europe must pay ton
nage dues at the rate of 6 cents per ton
and her new register, which will probably
be determined tomorrow, will not only
affect this amount, but will also affect the
amount of pilotage dues collected.

THE ROOT OF THE MATTER
He Cured Himself of Serious Stamach
Trouble by Getting Down to
First Principles.
A man of large affairs In-one f of our
prominent Eastern cities by too close at
tention to business, too little exercise and
too many club dinners, finally began to
pay Nature's tax, levied in the form of
chronic stomach trouble; the failure of
his digestion brought about a nervous
Irritability, making it Impossible to apply
himself to his dally business and finally
deranging the kidneys and heart.
In his own words he says: "I consulted
one physician after another, and each one
seemed to understand my case, but all
the same they each failed to bring about
the return of my former digestion, appe
tite and vigor. For two years I went from
pillar to post, from one sanitarium to an
other, I gave up smoking. I quit coffee
and even renounced my daily glass or two
of beer, but without any marked improve
ment! Friends had often advised me to try a
well-known proprietary medicine, Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets, and I had often pe
rused the newspaper advertisements of
the remedy, but never took any stock' in
advertised medicines, nor could believe a
50-cent patent medicine would touch my
case.
"To make a long story short I finally
bought a couple of packages at the near
est drugstore and took two or three tab
lets after each meal and occasionally a
tablet between meals, when I felt any ,
feeling of nausea or discomfort.
"I was surprised at the end of the first
week to note a marked improvement in
my appetite and general health and before
the two packages were gone I was cer
tain that Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets was
going to cure completely, and they did not
disappoint me. I can eat and sleep and
enjoy my coffee and cigar and no one
would suppose I had ever known the
horrors of dyspepsia.
"Out of friendly curiosity I wrote to the
proprietors of the remedy asking for
information as to what the tablets con
tained and they replied that the principal
Ingredients were aseptic pepsin (Govern
ment test), malt diastase and other nat
ural digestives, which digest food regard
less of the condition of the stomach."
The root of the matter Is this, the di
gestive elements contained in Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets will digest the food.
give the overworked stomach a chance
to recuperate and the nerves and whole
system receive the nourishment which can
only come from food; stimulants and
nerve tonics never give reai strengtn,
they give a fictitious strength, invariably
followed by reaction." Every drop of blood.
every nerve and tissue Is manufactured
from our daily food, and If you can In
sure it sprompt action and complete di
gestion by the regular use of so good
and wholesome a remedy as Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets, you will havS" no need of
nerve tonics and sanitariums.
Although Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
have been in the market only a few years
yet probably every druggist In the United
States, Canada and Great Britain now
sells them and considers them the most
popular and successful of any prepara
tion for stomach trouble.
