THE &ORNIKG OREGOKIAN, THURSDAY, FEBRUAJtY 16, l&Oo. CHINESE MOSES VISITS 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- NEW CONVEYOR TESTED ELECTRICAL APPARATUS STARTS AT PACIFIC COAST BUNKERS. f Machinery Has Capacity of Two Hun dred Tons Per Hour Homer 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, nd has a capacity of 203 tons per hour. Most of the coal received by the com pany is brought by rail from Seattle and the new apparatus permits of its handling in the most expeditious man ner. The muchino with a single oper ator docs the work of 12 men. There is 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 low the dock, which allows the use of the contrivance at any stage of water. It cannot be run to its full capacity, however, in loading steamers, as no ship can take over 50 tons an hour. Tho same conveyor will bo employed in un loading coal cargoes that will bo brought here. The belt line Is 272 feet long. Passengers on the Homer. MARSHFHSLD. Or., Feb. 15. (Spe cial.) Tho steamer Homer sailed today for Portland with the following pas sengers: G. G. Graves.

The Emporor.'I didn't catch his name, 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 off their coats and started to work. The boom lasted just a hundred days, and they were preparing to plaster the pa godas with chewing-gum "ads" whon Tsi An, the Dowagor Empress, who is sup posed to be tho whole works, got onto their curves. She had heard what hap pened to Tacoma, and declared that there wouldn't be any boom left in China by Spring. 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 ers were prowling around looking for him, so tho British Admiral sent him to Hong Kong, the vessel which carried him being convoyed by two other warships. were brought here today on the steamer Sarnia, which arrived from-Kingston by way of Fortune Island. Six of tho sailors were seamen from tho Italian bark Eliza Vetromile. which was wrecked on Point Morant, Jamaica, and became a total loss. The other was a member of the crew of the American schooner Ida C. Southard, which was abandoned at ?ca yesterday in a dismasted and waterlogged condition. Tho crew of tho Southard was rescued by the German steamer Siberia and landed at Fortune Island. Marine Notes. The repairs to the Columbia River lightship will be completed by Saturday. The steamer Prentiss came ovor from Vancouver yesterday and left down last night. The China liner Nlcomedia will move up from the flouring mill to the Albina dock tills morning.

PORTLAND Return Home and 4 'J 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 cence. Ills secretary. Mr. Cheu Hoan, being of tender years, but of much world ly wisdom, went with me, gave me his card in return, and hoped I would spell his namo right. A- A. G HURRIES ROBBERS AWAY SHERIFF FROM ALBANY TAKES SUSPECTS TO FACE CHARGE. Secures Lebanon Bankbreakers and Leaves Town Quickly to Escape Persistent Attorneys. The Lebanon bank robbers, J. A. Cross ley, alias Harry Reynolds, James Dunn, A. D. Hendryx and J. Darland, were taken to Albany yesterday morning by SherJrt "White, of Linn County, and Dep uty Sheriff MUlhollen.

The robbers wero sent off by Sheriff "Word as quickly as possible to be rid of certain attorneys who were troublesome" at tho jail. This gang is bel loved to have been con cerned in other safe robberies recently perpetrated, and In tho O. R & N. Co. train hold-up, but these are mere suspi cions as yet. Klnglsey, tho leador of the band, who escaped, Is thought to bo in British Co lumbia. Crossley has lived In Portland for some time past, going under the namo of Harry Reynolds, and is quite woll known. He is an engineer and Is sup posed to be the man who did the mechani cal work of blowing up the safes.

YOUNG BANDIT'S MOTHER HERE Highwayman May Plead Guilty and Ask Mercy of Court. A mother's tears for her wayward son were witnessed yesterday when Mrs. Mary A. Drumraond, from Lamar, Colo., arrived at the County Jail, having: trav eled thousands of miles to try to savo her boy. James Drummond. who Is charged with robbing John M. Lowns dals and with attempting' to- rob L. D. Keyser. a railway conductor, on tho Madison-street bridge three weeks ago. Mrs. Drummond's coming was delayed because of tho severe weather. Sho said yesterday that her son left homo May 15 last, and the understand ing "was that, if he liked it out here, she and her little daughter were to fol low him.

Drummond has been advised to plead guilty and throw himself upon the mercy of the court. Some definite ac tion In the case will probably be taken soon. He pleaded not guilty on Monday, but this was done only for the purpose of delay until his mother got here. COUNTY PROFITS BY SUICIDE 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. HE SUES FOR HIS COMMISSION Timberman Goes Into Court to Ob tain Half His Pay. The suit of Lewis Montgomery against Marshall J.

NUMBER ISSUED FALLS OFF Through Portland Postoffice $7,378,- 353 Has Been Sent Away Jap anese Are the Largest Buyers of International Orders. 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 issued, $3T0.3!a.42: foos on same 52910.63: 24.236 certificates of deposit on money or der account, 53,003.207.80; 226,473 domestic orders paid, 52.603,161.44; S19 International orders paid, 524.51S.33.

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 READS THE BOOK "The Road to -Wellville" Pointed the Way. 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 ive. I can memorize practically anything I desire." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek,- Mich. ' l j Mahogany 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.
