Reformer Awaits Conditions That Will Allow Him to
Revolutionize Celestial Kingdom With a Whole Skin.
TIE mandarin wore a skull-cap of
seal's fur, claret-colored jacket o
silk and a heavy skirt of the same
material, blue In color and cut Princess,
I bellevo, although Ie no certainty on the
subject- He wore a more than usually
sallow Chinaman and his mustache-ends
drooped dolefully- They also straggled
and were coarse and unbeautiful as a
turkey-gobbler's beard. Upon his most
esteemed feet were the same pattern of
low felt shoes which one sees the Second
street macaronis wear on a holiday.
The appearance of him was as Ori
ental as those pictures of Confucius that
Chinese artists put on their posters. It
was almost a shock ' to meet the man
darin. His Excellency Kang Yu Wei.
leader of the new order, in all his East
ern magnificence.
1 had expected to find a man, silk
hatted and frock-coated, in the latest
vogue of the "West. There was good
reason to suppose that the great Chinese
Radical had put away things of the old
regime and would be so ardent for civili
zation that he would dress and speak it,
but it was not so. I'll gamble a little
that he wears a queue, carefully coiled
under his turban, and it was at once
brought in upon me that "he was woe
fully shy on his English.
Kang Yu "Wei is tho recognized head
of the Chinese Reform Association of the
world, which means that he is agin' the
government that Is to say he is agin
Tsi An, the old harriden who stands
behind the present Emperor of China
and rules Kang Yu Wei's government
with a w:ator-elm club.
The Chinese Reform Association has a
membership of seeral millions, scattered
all over the face of the world. Its object
is to modernize China as Japan is mod
ernizing. These several millions of mem
bers pay tithes into the general fund
for the establishment of newspapers,
schools and other Institutions that make
for enlightenment. There is a healthy
branch in Portland and It Is to consider
the local situation that Mandarin Kang
Yu "Wei is here.
Louis Kossuth, the Hungarian patriot,
set the fashion of exiled foreigners com
ing to America to conduct a propaganda
in the Interest of their particular protests
against their home governments. He
came more than 50 years ago, and no
doubt succeeded. To this day we have
Hungarian bands, wiuch have done much
for keepers of cafes. Kossuth's pioneer
ing gave us the much over-uniformed or
chestra, but It Is not written what he did
for his native land by coming here. Since
then there have been many others, and
tho latest of these Is Kang Yu "Wei, who
"will make a tour of America in the in
terest of his cause. As a net result of
his visit, he may popularize chop suey as
an article of diet- If l.e does this, he will
break even with Kossuth.
He rejoices In a private secretary '
Chew Hean by name an intelligent, Eu
ropeanlzcd chap of tender years, but
much worldly wisdom. This Chew took
my card to His Excellency, who does not
speak more English than "How do" and
"Good-bye." I waited in the parlor, and
His Excellency teetered Into the room,
with the secretary in his train. Being
presented was a funny ceremony, but
after some preliminary kow-towing, we
shook hands and sat down.
The incongruity then impressed itself
upon me. The Moses of tho new move
ment, speaking Chinese as old as the wall,
through an interpreter, and wearing that
claret-colored jacket. Excellency com
menced talking, the sound of -which was
like a housewife .chopping mincemeat in
. wooden-bowl, but tho talk filtered
-through 'Sir. Chow and reached me in
fairly understandable English.
Kang Yu "Wet was a mighty mandarin
In China and a very learned doctor. He
knew many books and bo many great
v.-ords of wisdom that no man might tell
of them- He was thus seven years since.
Now, seven yeara ago there was an
Emperor on the throne of China who
looked well upon Kang Yu Wei and be
lieved with him that China needed a wak
ing up. He found that Kaag Yu "Wei was
the leader of the new movement, and he
made him a great mandarin, took him
Into the Imperial City and counseled much'
with him. The two of them started in to
reform things. They figured that it was
lime to crowd tho mossbacks out onto
the back seats and start a boom. They
wanted to open the doors to the benevo
lent American and English trusts and
have a stock market, railroad accidents
nd labor strikes of their own. They
yearned for "frenzied finance" and auto-
Machinery Has Capacity of Two Hun

Sails From Coos Bay.
The new . electrical conveyor, which
has been put in the Pacific Coast coal
bunkers at tho foot of Quimby street,
was started up yesterday afternoon and
proved to be a great success. It is
what is known as the link belt systom,

Most of the coal received by the com

and the new apparatus permits of its
handling in the most expeditious man

room on the traok for eight cars, -which
can be dumped simultaneously, the coal
falling into hoppers where it Is picked
up by tho conveyor and distributed to
any jart of the bunkers where it may
be wanted. The same conveyor that is
used in unloaJing cars Is also used In
loading vessels. Thero are three chutes
on the river side, placed above and be

the contrivance at any stage of water.
It cannot be run to its full capacity,
however, in loading steamers, as no

and Kang Yu Wei, who was then virtu
ally Prime Minister, or Secretary of the
Commercial Club, or something like that,
wanted to settle up the country and make
Pekin a good town to live in. They pulled

An is said to be a great somebody,
but also a most disagreeable old lady
when she's mad. By this time she was
good and mad, so she put on her bonnet
and grabbed her club. She had her de
voted son, the Emperor, thrown Into jail
and decided to do a little reforming on
her own account She ordered all those
who favored the new plan to stay on the
second floor and keep out of the boxes
or be beheaded. She decapitated some of
the most enterprising citizens and went
about looking for Kang Yu Wei, who
ducked the palace and did his work se
cretly in other parts of tow'n. He was
game, however, and formed a plot to
rescuo the Emperor and send An to the
Old Ladies' Home. He had many follow
ers and everything looked good until the
Emperor himself issued a secret edict to
Kang directing him to give It up unless
he wanted to get them all killed off with
out further ceremony. He also urged
Kang to get out of the country as quickly
as possible.
This business of getting away was tho
hardest part of all. An's spies and sol
diers watched every train and boat and
country road in China, for the outlawed
Mandarin. He finally disguised himself
as a coolie and got into a train bound
for Tientsin. The train was- stopped and
searched a number of times beforo it
reached ita destination. At Tientsin he
managed to board a tramp steamer and.
although the vessel was stopped and
searched for him, he readied Shanghai in
safety. There he was taken aboard a
British man-of-war. Two Chinese cruis

him, so tho British Admiral sent him to

Return Home and
Once in Hong Kong, the Japanese Em
peror offered him an asylum In Japan and
the Japanese fleet landed him on tho
coast of that kingdom.
Once there he was safe to go and come
as he pleased. Old Mrs. An couldn't get
at him unless she declared war against
Japan and she had had hers In the war
line from Japan a few years before.
While In Japan, Kang Yu Wei continued
the work of reform. He conceived the
Idea of organizing a world association to
Include Chinamen wherever they might
be. He also wrote much and learnedly,
concerning conditions In China, and
warned the powers of the threatened
Boxer uprising and advised them to get
tholr representatives and missionaries out
of the empire long before the uprising
actually occurred.
He drew up many memorials and sent
them to his people asking" for govern
mental reforms. These, In turn, wero
carried up to the throne and when An
allowed the Emperor to resume his office
many of them were granted. Conditions
within the empire have Improved won
derfully since the organization of the as
sociation and when An most graciously
diefs, Kan Yu Wei ,and his followers be
lieve that China will advance very rap
idly. During his years of banishment Kang
has traveled all over the world, devoting
most of his time to Europe. He Is every
where looked upon by his people as their
great chief and enjoys their complete
confidence. As head of tho Reform As
sociation he receives thousands of dol
lars to advance tho work and. In fact, Is
general administrator of Its affairs.
These things I learned from my Inter
view with the great Mandarin. They
must bo true, for. they camo through
Mr. Cheu, the Interpreter, and are here
recorded, not verbatim, perhaps, but
as vcroaum as x unucnsiooa tncm. when
the talking was over there was much
wishing expressed that the most annoy
ing Mrs. An, of Pekin, who is most satis
factorily very old, would decently die and
permit the learned Kang Yu Wei, Moses
of his people, to go back to China to live
with his head, and much honors and ref
ormation for tho empire.
The last I saw of him he was teetering
up the corridor of the Portland Hotel In
the great glory of his old regime magnifi

being of tender years, but of much world
ly wisdom, went with me, gave me his
card in return, and hoped I would spell

Rash Act of Italian Murderer Saves
County $1000 or More.
The suicide of Joe Florebello, the
murderer of Amelia Slrianni, saved the
county about $1000, which sum would
have been the expense of a trial and
other court costs which usually occur
because of numerous delays In execut
ing justice, Gugllclmo, who killed Freda
Guarascia, has been in the County Jail
since last Summer, and had Fiorcbello
been apprehended his case would prob
ably have dragged the same way. The
county has to pay for the board of
prisoners, and in Fiorebcllo's case all
bills would have fallen upon the county
attorneys' fees, jurors fees, costs of
appeal, and all because Fiorcbello was
without means, so It was reported.
The Gugllclmo case is an exception,
from the fact that Gugllelmo has
means to pay for everything; and the
charges against the county have con
sequently been small.

The report of the business transacted
during the year ending December 31, 1WH,
in the money order division of tho local
postofflcc, which has just been completed
by Superintendent G. F. Whltehouse,
shows a gratifying increase In the busi
ness of that department.
The total amount of money transactions
for tho year Is $7,37S,353.70, an increase
over the preceding year of over 5500,000.
A recapitulation of the total money or
der business transacted shows 41,024 do
mestic orders issued, JIS5.160.20; fees on
same, $290.12: 11,216 international orders

station, which was in charge of Wood

continued. Station No. 11 takes second
place with a business of $190,105.01.
While an increase of over 5500.000 ap
pears In comparison with the business of
1003, yet there lias been a falling off
in the actbal number of money orders
issued. This, Superintendent Whltehouso
attributes to the removal of the postofflcc
to Its present location, and thinks that
"The Road to -Wellville" Pointed the
Down at Hot Springs, Ark., the visitors
have all sorts of complaints, but it Is a
subject of remark that the great major
ity of them have some trouble with stom
ach and bowels. This may be partly
attributed to the heavy medicines.
Naturally, undor the conditions, tho
question of food is very prominent.
A young man states that he had suf
fered for nine years from stomach and
bowel trouble, hod two operations which
did not cure, and was at last threatened
with appendicitis.
He went to Hot Springs for rheuma
tism and his stomach trouble got worse.
One day at breakfast the waiter, knowing
his condition, suggested he try Grape
Nuts and cream, which he did, and found
the food agreed with him perfectly.
After the second day he began to sleep
peacefully at night, different than he had
for years. The perfect digestion of the
food quloted his nervous system and made
sleep possible.
Ho says: "The next morning I was as
tonished to Hurl my condition of consti
pation hnd disappeared. I could not be
lieve It true after suffering for so many
years; then r took more Interest in the
food, read the little book The Road to
"Wellville,' and started following the. sim
ple directions.
"I have met with such results that in
,thc last five weeks I havo gained eight
pounds In spite of hot hatha which take
away the flesh from anyone.
"A friend of mine has been entlrely
cured of a bad case of indigestion and
stomach trouble by using Grape-Nuts
Food and cream alone for breakfast.
"Thore is one thing in particular I
have noticed a great change In my
mental condition. Formerly I could
hardly remember anything, and now tho
mind seems unusually acute and retent

I desire." Name given by Postum Co.,

when tho office is settled In its new
quarters and therefore becomes more con
venient to the general public, a much
larger increase will be shown in the busi
ness of his department.
An Increase of 5S5.25S appears In the
money orders paid as compared with the
preceding year. It Is interesting to note
that, of the amount of money orders
paid, at least two-thirds are presented
by the department 3tores and other busi
ness Institutions.
Of tho international money orders is
sued, the Japanese are by far the largest
buyers, and Superintendent Whltehouse
says that It is no uncommon occurrence
to issue 250 orders aggregating from
57000 to SSOuO to the Japancso In one day.
and that seldom a day passes without a
Japanese demand for orders. The Jap
anese who purchase orders are mainly
of the laboring class who send the larger
part of their monthly earnings to their
relatives in Japan.
The international money order busi
ness is steadily Increasing and now It Is
possible to send money through the me
dium of the postoffice to practically every
country in the world.

Tacoma Will Play Chicago on the
Portlands, Training Grounds.
SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. ln.-fSpwial.)-Tacoma
will play Chicago at Bakersfield
March 12, notwithstanding the protest of
Manager McCredle, who will train his
men at this point. After hearing both
sides. President Bort ruled that It was

"Even If it were a league affair. I
would have to decide In Tacoma's favor."
said President Bert today. - "Fisher ar
ranged the game in good faith. A con
tract was signed with tho basoball asso
ciation, and,' after It was done, McCredte
decides to train at Bakersfield. Now he
wants us to declare Tacoma's game off,
as it will cut in on his revenue.
"I would like to accommodate him. but,
as I have said. I can't see how. It is not
a league affair, and even If It were, I
would have to decide against Portland on
the evidence presented."
Fisher received word from the Bakers
field Baseball Association today that the
new grounds would be in shape for the
opening game.

Few People Know How Useful It Is in
Preserving Health and Beauty.
Nearly everybody knoW3 that charcoal
Is the safest and most cedent disinfect
ant and In nature, but" few
realize Its value when taken into tbft
human system for tho same cleansing
Charcoal is a remedy that the mors
you take of it the better; it Is not a drug
at all, but simply absorbs the gases and
Impurities always present In the stomach
and Intestines and .carries them out of
the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath after
smoking, drinking or after eating onions
and other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and improves
the complexion, it whitens tho teeth and
further acts as a natural and eminently
safe cathartic.
It absorbs the Injurious gases "which
collect in the stomach and bowels: it
disinfects the mouth and throat from tho
poison of catarrh. f
All druggists sell charcoal in one form
or another, but probably the best char
coal and the most for the money Is in
bt.uar.-6 Charcoal Lozenges; they are
composed of the finest powdered Willow
charcoal, and other harmless antiseptics
in tablet form, or rather in the form of
large, pleasant tasting lozenges, tho char
coal being mixed with honey.
The -ally U3e of theso lozenge3 will
soon tell In a muci. improved condition
of the general health, better complexion,
sweeter breath and purer blood, and the
beauty of it Is, tha no possible harm
ean result from their continued use, but
on the contrary, great benefit.
A Buffalo physician In speaking- of the
benefits of charcoal says: ."I advise Stu
art's Charc Lozenges to all patients
suffering from gas In atomach and bow
els, and to clear the complexion and puri
fy tho br- th, mouth and throat; I also
believe the- liver ls greatly benefited by
the daily use of them; they cost but
twenty-five cents a box at drug stores,
and although in some sense a patent prep
aration, yet I believe I get moro and bet
ter charcoal in Stuart's Charcoal Loz
enges than in any of the ordinary char
coal tablets."
