ings will be secret, tonight's reception will
be open to the general public
The states ot Oregon and Washington
will be largely represented and, as a re
sult of the convention, the granges in the
Northwest will be greatly strengthened.
Many important matters will be consid
ered at the sessions. Two members of the
national executive committee are to be
elected, and there will be sharp competi
tion for the location of the next national
meeting. While all the other officers will
hold over until next year, this Is expected
to be one of the most interesting and
spirited meetings in the history of the
At today's session the standing commit
tees "will be appointed and the sixth de
gree will be conferred. The master's an
nual address may also be delivered today,
although It is probable this order will
not be reached until later In the week.
"The National Grange was founded 33
years ago by O. H. Kelly and James
Soxindry, of the, then. Bureau of Agri
culture at Washington," said Master
Jones, yesterday. "These gentlemen were
directed by the Commissioner of Agricul-.
ture to tour the country and study the
social condition of the American farmer.
They were so strongly impressed with the
need of an organization looking toward
the dissemination of culture, of scientific
methods of agriculture and many other
matters calculated to Interest and benefit
the fanning community, that they per
fected the organization of the National
Grange. We hai'e grown steadily In
numbers and Influence until now we have
a membership of 709,000 and have a fund
of 550,000 in our treasury- We have
brought about many reforms and done
much to place the American farmer on
the high plane which be occupies today
It was through the efforts of the Grange
that a Department ot Agriculture was
"In some manner the impression seems
to prevail that the Grange is antagonis
tic to manufacturing and the railway cor
porations. This Is not true. Wo are In
hearty sympathy with the manufacturing
Interests as properly -conducted. Neither
have we a fight against the railroads.
We believe that the manufacturer should
have an honest profit on his goods and
that the railroads are entitled to fair
tariffs for carrying our products. We do
not antagonize anybody but simply work
for the betterment of all conditions.
"I am glad to be in Portland and think
our convention will greatly strengthen
the Grange In the States of Oregon and
Washington. Our greatest membership
ts In the State of New York, where there
are 70,000 members of the order. We are
also very strong in New England and the
Central West, and have healthy, vigorous
organizations on the Pacific Coast. The
convention which opens tomorrow will be
an important one and we expect great
good to result from It."
Both Claim Congressman In Nevada.
RENO, New. Nov. IS. The result of the
election for Congressman in this state Is
still In doubt. Both the Republican and
Democratic state committees claim a vic
tory by about 40 votes. The definite re
sult win not be known until the official
canvass of the returns is complete.
MAY SHIP BY WATER
Wheat for East to Go by Cape
Dealers Contemplate Chartering the
American Sailing Vessels for the
Purpose Arrival of the
Portland grain dealers are again con
sidering the feasibility of transporting
wheat to Eastern markets by the water
route. The facilities at the disposal of
the railroads have proved Inadequate to
move the grain as promptly as desired,
and either another means of transport
ation must be found, or trading will
cease altogether, at least on Eastern
account. Some 15,000,000 bushels of
wheat have been purchased In the three
Northwestern States for shipment to
Eastern markets, and only a small por
tion of this amount has, thus far, been
forwarded. The entire quantity will,
of course, ultimately find its way to
the East, but the poor dlspatcn given
by the railroads Is what is causing the
complaint. While the wheat merchants
realize that some of the lines are do
ing their utmost to meet the emer
gency, they are, nevertheless, casting
about for other means of transporta
tion. Negotiations were started about a
month ago for the chartering of a
steamer to carry wheat from Portland
to the - Atlantic seaboard, but the deal
did not reach a head. Later-, an effort
was made to secure space on the steam
ers of the American-Hawaiian line,
plying between this Coast and New
York, but it was found the steamers
had all the business they could at
tend to. The great difficulty in such an
undertaking has been to secure Amer
ican vessels, as none others are al
lowed to carry freight from one Amer
ican port to another.
The plan now is to secure. If possible,
American sailing vessels for the pur
pose. The sail voyage around the
Horn from Portland to New York
would occupy about four months' time,
but the length of the passage would be
no obstacle, as much of the wheat has
been sold for delivery four months
hence, or later. It is true, there are
not many sailing ships under the Amer
ican flag that are available, and It has
been many months since the stars and
stripes were seen over a grain ship in
this harbor, but Jt jit, -belloyed such
craft can be obtained, and If a suitable
rate Is made, there will be a diversion
of a considerable part of the traffic
from the railroads. There are no less
than ten American sailors now lying
idle at San Francisco, which have a
combined carrying capacity of over
25,000 tons, and It is probable that
some of these may be engaged for this
business. A few years ago. an average
of one American sailing ship a month
came in with cargo from the Eastern
States and these vessels got their share
of the outward grain shipments made
to Europe. Lately, however, the buel
ness has been discontinued, merchan
dise from the East being brought by
steamer to San Francisco and tran
shipped from that port by coaster.
BRINGS A PART CARGO.
Return of British Ship Falrport From
The British ship Falrport reached the
harbor yesterday afternoon with a partial
cargo of cement for Meyer, Wilson & Co.,
and moored at Columbia dock No. 1,
where it will be discharged. The vessel
is from Hamburg via Honolulu, and, ac
oordlng to Captain Armstrong, she had
a generally uneventful passage.
The ship sailed from the German port
May 19, and reached the Islands after a
run of 137 days. Except for some bad
weather oft the Plata, where a few sails
were carried away In a storm, there were
no incidents on the first part of the trip.
The Falrport discharged a part of her
cargo at Honolulu and sailed again Octo
ber 18, after a two weeks' stay there.
She made a rattling passage of 15 days
from the Hawaiian port to the Columbia
River lightship, but, unfortunately,
reached the Coast in the midst of a storm,
and, unable to enter the river then, was
forced to stand out to sea. For eight
days she beat about and then a favorable
opportunity came and she was towed in
to Astoria. The ship will begin discharg
ing her Inward cargo at once. She has
no charter for outward business.
The Falrport was here last in October,
1902, sailing on the ISth of that month
for Queenetown with 123,000 bushels of
wheat, dispatched by Balfour. Guthrie &
Co. The same master was then in com
mand of the ship.
More of Jetty Trestle Gone.
ASTORIA, Or., Nov. 15. (Special.) A
storm of unusual fury raged last night
and for a time this morning, but this af
ternoon the weather quieted down. A
considerable portion of the Jetty trestle
was carried out by the mountainous seas.
A shipping man who was at the mouth
of the river this afternoon stated that
all of the old work at the outer end of
the breakwater had been carried away
and that some of the new work was also
gone. Damage was done where gaps had
been opened' up at a previous date. It is
estimated that last night's gale tore out
half a mile of the jetty. The portion
gone had not been fully completed, but
consisted of trcstling.
Webster on Temporary Route.
VANCOUVER, Wash., Nov. 15. Special.)
The Vancouver ferry was started for
Portland today, where she will be docked
for repairs. The new ferryboat Lionel R.
Webster will bo used for about two
months, until the Vancouver can be re
turned. The old ferry, which has been
used here; was much in need of repair,
and will receive a thorough overhauling.
The Webster is being run at alow speed
until the machinery has worked down so
as to permit of better time.
Clear From Tacoma.
TACOMA, Wash., Nov. 15. The French
bark Dessalx and the- German ship Al
debaran cleared at the Tacoma Custom
House today. The cargo of the former
amounts to 103.616 bushels of wheat, val
ued at $90,000. The Aldebaran has 103.030
bushels of wheat, valued at $33,000. Both
vessels clear for the United Kingdom for
Sailors Libel a Whaler.

In Early Days.
It .is probable that fh,e Forestry

structure, and that the matter will be
carried Into the Legislature at the next
In order to save the magnificent
building from the fate of destruction,
which has been legally provided for in
the act creating the Exposition, it
will be necessary to have a portion of
the enactment modified, to exclude the
Forestry building from the list of the
doomed. There Is now no doubt but
what the matter will be taken up at
the next session, so President Myers
states, and that the plan of donating
It to the pioneers for their use in hold

war veterans can undoubtedly be car
The Forestry building is by far the
most durable building ever constructed
at an Exposition. Nothing like it was
ever before built. It Is made of giant

LEWIS' WATCH IS FOUND.
Lady In West Virginia Said to Have
Relic of Explorer.
The watch worn by Captain Lewis on
the exploring expedition across the con
tinent 'is now in the possession of an old
lady living at Weston, "W. Va., according
to a communication received by Commis
sion President Myers yesterday from
Rev. A. Cv Crmnman, rector of St. Paul's
Church at Weston. Rev. Mr. Crlnnman
offered his services in getting the relic
and President Myers forwarded a reply
at once, soliciting his assistance in ar
ranging for the loan or sale of the time
piece, which, if bona fide, will be a valu
able addition to the Lewis and Clark
relied which will be on exhibition at the
Fair next year.
Stone in Sloat Monument.
That Oregon should take steps to
have a stone in the Sloat mounment,
at- Monterey, Cal., is the advice of E.
A. Sherman, a prominent Callfornian.
who communicated yesterday with
Lewis and Clark headquarters, show
ing the historical events that make the
monument a matter of interest In Ore
gon. The monument is In honor of
Commodore Sloat, who raised the
American flag at Monterey, July 7,
186. By that act Oregon was relieved
from all danger of having a hostile
neighbor on the south and Oregon peo
ple and Interests were afforded pro
tection by the Admiral's Pacific squad
ron. Mr. Sherman suggests that by mak
ing a small appropriation for thls
monument the bonds of friendship be
tween Oregon and California will be
more closely drawn and the result "will
be a deeper interest in the Lewis and
Clark Exposition next year.
