THE MOUSING OREGON! AN WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1 1905.'
BIDS ARE OPENED
Only Two Companies Wish to
Furnish Stone for Jetty.
PRICES ARE REASOI&BLE
No Award to Be Made on Proposals
i Until the Appropriation Recom
mended Is Authorized
Major "W. C. Langfitt opened bids yes
terday for furnishing and delivering stone
for Jetty construction at the mouth of the
Columbia River this year, and found but
J. "W. Sweeney, of Portland, offered to
.furnish 400,000 tons of stone at $1.02 per
ton, f. o. b. barges at Fort Stevens, the
Ftone to be taken from the Bunker Hill
iuarry, near Stella, Wash.
The Columbia Contract Company, Port
land, offered 450,000 tons of stone at $1.10,
i. o. b. barg?3 at Fort Stevens, the stone
to be quarried at Fisher's Landing.
The Columbia Contract Company also
tendered a second proposal of not less
than 200,000 tons at 62 cents f.o. b. the
cars at Butte quarry. This quarry is in
Multnomah county on the line of the O.
It. & X. Co.
These offers compare favorably -with
the prices paid last year for stone. Two
contracts were then in force, one with
the Columbia Contract Company at $1.S
for delivery by water, and the other with
the Northwest Construction Company at
91 cents, for delivery by rail.
Thf advertisement for proposals pro
vided that as it la impoi?jble at this time
for the engineers to estimate the quantity
of stone required for this year's work,
bidders should base their estimates on an
approximate quantity of 600,000 tons. To
allow of a possible variation from tiat
quantity bidder wtre required to state
'the minimum and maximum quantities
of stone which they would contract to
deliver. The proposal of J. Yv. Sweeney
'fixes the maximum quantity at 400,000
(tons, but It would appear from the bid
tof the Columbia Contract Company that
-while they only offer 450.000 tons, they
could deliver up to the 600,000 tons.
No award will be made on these pro
posals until the appropriations lately rec
"ommended by the committee are aulhor
Jzed by Cpngresf. The Engineers De
partment will then determine the amount
which can be expended on stone, and a
Contract will be mad for that amount.
. "With the amount of money available at
(Present and the appropriations allowed
It is doubtful, however, if there will be
funds sufficient for much more than
300.000 tons of stone. The available bal
ance on Januairy 1. was J2CI.510, which,
added to the appropriation as recommend
ed, will allow 5862.540 for work at the
mouth of the river- this year. This fund
will have tq, provide for the repairs to the
areagc uninooK. estimated at $iyu,two, ana
also for the maintenance and operation
of the dredge during the year, which will
probably amount to 5120.000. This would
leave but $600,000 for actual Jetty con
struction, and before any new construc
tive work can be done this amount will
be reduced by the replacing of the super
structure carried away by the storms.
It Is also doubtful if any actual exten
sion can be made to the Jetty this year.
The extension of 7500 feet made last year
has not been completed in height and it
will take probably 400,000 tons? of stone
to complete the jetty to lis present outer
end. Ap soon as the track work Is re
paired the work of filling this uncom
pleted portion will begin, and when that
Is finished, should funds then be available,
the work of extension will be taken up.
The jetty at present extends out Jive
and one-fourth miles, leaving but one and
one-half mlle to be constructed.
CK0WDS HEAR DR. BROTJGHER
Minister Speaks to Audience on "Girl
Who Fell Out of Bed."
"Church members who have fallen out
of bed." This Is Dr. Brougher's term for
what are more commonly called "back
sliders." There was a large audience at
the White Temple last night to hear Dr.
Brougher's sermon on "The Little Girl
Who Fell Out of Bed." There were many
Christians present, good, bad and Indiffer
ent,' and a large after-meeting was held,
and a great many of these renewed their
jpledge of loyalty to Christ.
Dr. Brougher based his sermon on the
Ftory of, a little girl who fell out of bed.
Her mother, hearing her cry, rushed to
her assistance. Picking her up and put
ting her back in bed, she said: "My dear,
Jhow did you come to fall out?" The little
;Birl replied: "I don't know, unless it
was because I lay down too close to the
place I got in."
This story, said Dr. Brougher, contains
ithe philosophy of backsliding. That is a
'good enough name for the experience If
you can not get another. The Methodists
Icall it "falling from grace." Some other
;denomlnations say that such people are
:'out of communion," but whatever the
'jiame you apply to this state of Christian
life, one thing is absolutely sure they
all feel that the devil has got them. Nine-
tenths of the church members who are
"cold and indifferent, can find the reason
lor their condition in lying down too
t close to the place they got in." An old
'darkey ivoman who had been baptized
came up out of the water shouting:
"Thank the Lawd, it am all over." She
was entirely mistaken. It had Just begun.
A Christian is expected to "grow in
knowledge and In the grace of the Lord
Jesus Christ." When he ceases to grow
and become stronger, it will not be long
before he has fallen by the way.
DIES IN HOSPITAL.
Well-Known Farmer of Grand Ronde
Valley Passes Away.
John Morrison, a farmer of the Grand
Hondo Valley, and an uncle of State
Senator Peter McDonald, died at the
Good Samaritan Hospital yesterday after
a brief illness.
The deceased came to the hospital from
La Grande on January 6. and was to have
undergone a surgical operation. Prepar
ations for this were being made, but his
condition became suddenly seriously yes
terday, and death occurred before relief
could be administered.
Mr. Morrteon, who was aged 73, was
born in Alva, Scotland. He emigrated
to California at an early age, and has
eince spent his life on the Coast.
Senator McDonald, who Is in attendance
at the Legislature, was notified by wire
yesterday, and he will arrive In Portland
this morning to accompany the remains
to La Grande.
AGAINST ALL SALOONS.
Must Keep Out of Woodstock, Laurel
wood and South Mount Tabor.
At a meeting of the residents of Laurel
wood Monday evening a "Law and Order
Association" was organized for the pur
pose of opposing any saloon being estab
lished in that district, and also to work
for the general betterment of the dis
trict. Rev. C. MacPherson was elected
president; E. E. Fulton, secretary: J. A.
Bushong. treasurer. A committee on con
stitution and by-laws wa? appointed.
This movement -was started because a
man named Lebo Is erecting a building
and got out a petition for a saloon In
Kern Park. The petition has been filed.
A remonstrance is being circulated " and
was presented at the meeting. W. A.
Schooling, chairman of the Arleta School
District No. 47. said he thought that the
best way to keep out the saloons Is for
all the neighborhoods to get a charter
and organize a city, which gives the
district power to control affairs.
The meeting passed some resolutions"
declaring its intention to fight estab
lishment of all saloons in any portion
of that territory between the Powell road
and Lents, including Woodstock, South
Mount Tabor, Park Place, Kern Park and
elsewhere there. Lebo Is putting up his
saloon in Kern Park.

THE PR OILMAN PROPERTY:, SOLD TO MRS. M. M. CEARIN.
The Prohman property, at the corner of Thirteenth and Washington streets which was sold to Dr. C. V. Cornelius, a few vreekB
ago. for $40,000. has bwii t-old by Urn to Mrs. M. M. Gearln for $48,000. The negotiations are not complete, ns Dr. Cornelius has
not yet received his deeds from the German Savings & Loan Society, if San Francisco, the former owner, but Mre. Gearln Is said
to have made a substantial deirelt upon the property at the price named.
The value of property has increased a great deal In that section c' town when a double sale with an SSOOO profit can be made
In lets than a month. Thlx particular piece of property, which Is 100 by 115 feet, has Increased almost 220,000 In value In a little
over a year. The German Savings & Loan Society obtained the property by foreclosing a mortgage on the Lyon heirs, and placed
is on the market for $30,000. The Lyon h?lrs claimed that they had not lost their rishts in tho property, and sued to have the
foreclosure annullf-d. The care was in the courts for a year or more, and, to eetlle the matter, the property was sold, and. It Is
understood, a settlement made between the contesting parties. Meanwhile the price had increased by natural growth, and the
property was finally sold to Dr. Cornelius for $40,600.

SAYS HE F0S&IVES TALBOT.
Irvine Gives Up All Proceedings
Against His Bishop.
PHILADELPHIA. Jan. 31. Rev. I. N.
W. Irvine today issued a statement an
nouncing that he had given up the fight
against Bishop Ethelbcrt Talbot.
Mr. Irvine says he will drop all pro
ceedings against Bishop Talbot, both
ecclesiastical and legal. He states that
he Is actuated by a desire to prevent fur
ther scandal to the Episcopal Church.
Dr. Irvine reviews the controversy with
the bishop at length, and enumerates
facts not heretofore given publicity. He
charges that money and influence were
used by Bishop Talbot to block his efforts
to bring the case before an ecclesiastical
courL In deciding to proceed no further
I uo not know what else can be done
with Bishop Talbot, who has brought such
a scandal upon the church and such a
scandal upon others, but to forgive him;
and I herewith, freely and without res
ervation, offer him a full and free pardon,
as if we were standing on the last great
day before the judgment throne of Jesus
Christ, our eternal God."

ONLY A FEW CAMPS ARE NOW
Yellow Fir Is Scarce, and Loggers
Have Hopes for Better Prices
In the Near Future.
No. 1 yellow fir logs will probably not
sell this year under $7.50 a thousand. That
price has not been obtained so far this
winter, but the large supply of rafts on
hand has now been about exhausted and
will hardly last more than a month.
There are no camps now running cutting
yellow flr, with one exception, and the
few which are cutting red flr cannot keep
up the supply after the stock In hand Is
Yellow and red fir taken together. It Is
estimated that there are not enough logs
In the water to run the mills at their
present rate for over a month. There !s
no expectation that other camps will be
gin operations before the first of March,
and by that time practically the whole
of the available supply will be exhausted.
With a clean market to start on and
only a commensurate output during the
Spring, the loggers are all sanguine of
obtaining much better prices than last
year. Their ambition at present is llm-
ited to $7.50 a thousand, and it Is not
likely .that they will be paid much more.
The conditions are such that the large
loggers are going about explaining to
their customers that they will not sell
under $7.50. The Benson Logging Com
pany, which will operate only In yellow lir
this fjmmer, has announced that as its
If there were any yellow fir rafts to
speak of in the water now they would
probably command that price, but, out
side the Collins camp on the Cowlitz,
none are cutting yellow fir, and It is
difficult to find any rafts which have not
long ago been contracted for.
The loggers, by shutting down last
Fall, have placed themselves In a com
manding position. For a year there had
been a glut of logs, and It was seen
that better prices could never be obtained
as long as a heavy supply kept the mar
ket overstocked. The loggers decided to
give the mills a chance to clean up the
stock and then to begin cutting again.
Most of them closed down two or three
months ago, and of these none have any
logs left, and none have begun operations
again. The weather has been good but
they have refrained. They will not open
now even though the price has advanced ;
from $5.50 to $7.00 and $7.25, because they j
fear bad weather during the next month.
When they finallly begin operations '
they will probably find the market clear I
and a healthy demand for their output, i
This is a very different condition from
the one which existed a year ago. At
that time most of the camps had been j
running all Winter and prices were about !
as low as they could get. Many camps j
did not open at all. and those running
were not making very much money. j
A. the year progressed, however, they
began to get better prices, -mainly be- j
cause a number of camps had not opened !
and the oversupply had been reduced; but '.
the flux was never entirely done away
with, and now for the first time in a year j
a shortage In the supply of logs is in
The loggers are all quite confident that
they will be able to demand $7.50 during I
the Spring, but they fear the increased
price will Induce some new camps to open
and crowd the market again.
World's New Battleships.
During 19M Great Britain launched two
battleships, both of 16.350 tons displace
ment and 18.000 horsepower. France
launched two battleship. of the same
horsepower, but with only 14.635 tons dis
placement. Italy launched three battle
ships, all of 12,625 tons displacement and
20,000 horsepower. Germany launched
two battleships, both of 12,937 tons dis
placement and 16,000-horsepower. Austria,
one of 10,630 tons displacement and 14,000
horsepower. Therefore, the countries of
Europe combined launched ten battle
ships in 1904, representing 135,459 tons dis
placement and 178,000 indicated horse
power. The United States In 1904 launched
seven battleships the Connecticut,
Georgia, Nebraska, New Jersey, Rhode
Island, Virginia and Louisiana or as
many as any three countries of Europe
combined, representing 107,000 tons dis
placement and 127,000 indicated horse
power. On that basis the tonnage of all
the battleships launched for countries
outside the United States last year ac
counted for less than 30,000 tons displace
ment more than the tonnage of the bat
tleships, launched by Uncle Sam alone.
England. Including all classes of war
ships, launched more vessels than did the
United States. That was also true of
France, though our total tonnage
launched far exceeded that of Great Brit
ain and was many times greater than the
tonnage put overboard from the French

COLD WINDS CAUSES SHIVERS
Portlanders Hurry for Their Heavy
Wraps and Overcoats.
A keen, biting easterly wind, which
blew steadily all day, gave Portland
another touch of winter yesterday and
made heavy wraps and tightly-buttoned

was not unusually low. 38 degrees belnjr
the minimum, but to the luckless pedes

night, and especially to those who re

the bridges, it seemed to be infinitely
colder than even that memorable day
of the oldest Inhabitant.
The wind maintained a velocity of 22
miles throughout the day, and last
night gave no indications of Immediate

for generally fair weather, with brisk

raw silk, brought here by the steamers of
the Portland & Asiatic Line. Next In
value were the Manila and other fibers

N'o wheat ships sailed from this port In
the month just ended. One vessel Is to
load and get away about the middle of
the present month, and one or two more

only sailing vessel that cleared last
month, the S. Celeste, carried a full cargo
of 127,634 bushels of barley, and a steamer
load of oats was also sent away.

WHY DOCTORS FAIL
AND MRS. PINKJJAM SUCCEEDS
Plain Reasons Are Hera KtfsiSjgJ818
Why Lydla E. Pinkham's Vegetable C5""

A'womanis sick; some disease peculiar
to hex sex is fast developing in her sys-
tem. She goes to her family physician
and tells him a story, hut not the whole
She holds something hack, loses her ,
head, becomes agitated, forgets what
she wants to say, and finally conceals
what she ought to have told, and thus
completely mystifies the doctor.
Is it any wonder, therefore, that the
doctors fail to euro the disease ? Still
we cannot hlame. the woman, for it is'
very embarrassing to detail some of the
symptoms of her suffering, even to her
It was for this reason that years ago
Mrs. Pinkham, at Lynn, Mass., de-
termined to step in and help her sex.
Having had considerable experience in
treating female ills with her Vegetable
Compound, she encouraged the women,
of America to write to her for advice in
regard to their complaints, and being a
woman, it was easy for her ailing sis
ters to pour into her ears every detail
of their suffering.
In this way she was able to do for
them what the physicians were unable"
to do, simply because she had the
proper information to work upon, and
from the little group of women who
sought her advice years ago a great
army of her fellow-beings are to-day;
constantly applying for advice and re
lief, and the fact that many thou--sands
of them have been cured by
following the advice of Mrst Pinkham
during the last year is indicative of the B
grand results which are produced by
her nnequaled experience and training.
No physician in the world has had
such a training, or has such an amount
of information at hand to assist in the
treatment of all kinds of female ills,
from the simplest local irritation to
the most complicated womb diseases,
This, therefore, is the reason why
Mrs., Pinkham, in her laboratory at
Lynn, Mass., is able to do more for the
ailing women of America than the
family physician. Any woman, there
fore, is responsible for her own suffer
ing who will not take the trouble to
write to Mrs. Pinkham for advice.
The testimonials which we are con
stantly publishing from grateful wo
men establish beyond a doubt the

January 25, at Likajentan, Chenchihpao

shelled a portion of the Japanese left, us

a series of small infantry encounters in
